TN writing the history of the Stawvood Family the 
-*■ original records of the towns and churches, and the 
wills and deeds at the county seats, have been followed 
in every case where it was possible, rather than books 
or hearsay evidence ; and the graveyards have not been 
neglected. Tradition has been taken only where there 
were no records, and in every case of this kind I have 
endeavored to show whether or not confidence can be 
placed in the information. 

The work of arranging and indexing court, military, 
and town records has been carried on so rapidly of late 
that it has been possible to find material relating to the 
earlier generations of the family which a few years ago 
would have been inaccessible. I have no doubt that the 
work which is now being done at the State House, the 
court houses, and in many of the towns will soon make it 
possible to add much more which will be of equal interest. 
The success of the illustrations in the book is due 
largely to my uncle, Mr. G. Francis Topliff, of Boston. 
Among others whom I wish to thank most heartily for 
their assistance are Mr. J. J. Tracy, chief custodian of the 
Massachusetts Archives ; Prof. George T. Little, Litt. D., 



Librarian of Bowdoin College; Mr. W. P. Greenlaw, of 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society; Mr. 
George S. Brown, of Boston ; and Mr. John Noble, clerk 
of the Supreme Judicial Court. 

I wish also to acknowledge great assistance from Mr. 
John J. Stanwood, Miss Cordelia J. Stanwood, Mr. Lewis 
A. Stanwood, Mr. F'rancis C. Stanwood, Mrs. Harvey B.

SOME six hundred years before Philip Stainvvood came 
to this country, the name of Stanwood in its ancient 
Saxon form was known in England. When the Domesday 
Survey was made, Staneude, which to-day is Stanswood in 
the County of Hampshire, was owned by the king, and 
part of it was included in his New Forest hunting-ground. 
The rest of the land was cultivated, and the description 
of the life in this little hamlet, which was later to give a 
name to a family, is simple and quaint.

" In Rodbridge Hundredo. 
" Ipse Rex tenet Staneude, Cheping tenuit, de rege 
Edwardo. Tunc, se defendebat pro 2 hidis ; modo, pro 
una ; quia alia est in foresta. Terra est 7 carucatae. In 



dominio est una; et 13 villani et 20 bordarii, cum 7 
carucis. Ibi 4 servi ; et unus molinus, de 5 solidos ; et 
4 acrae prati ; et 2 piscariae de 50 denariis. Silva de 10 
porcis. T. R. E. valebat 10 libras ; et postea, et modo, 
7 libras. Hoc manerium jacit in firma Regis, quam habet,

" In Rodbridge Hundred. 

" The King holds Staneude, which was held by Cheping 
of King Edward, and was, then, assessed at 2 hides. It 
is now, assessed at i only, because the other is in the 
forest. Here are 7 ploughlands ; i ploughland is in 
demesne; and 13 villagers and 20 borderers employ 7 
ploughs. Here are 4 servants, and a mill, which pays 5 
shillings; and 4 acres of meadow ; and 2 fisheries worth 
50 pence a year. Here are woods which furnish 10 
hogs. It was worth T. R. E. 10 pounds. It was after- 
wards, and is now worth 7 pounds. This manor is 
dependent on another belonging to the king in the Isle 
of Wight." (From the Domesday Book in Warner's 
" History of Hampshire.") 

The place is a hamlet still. It lies at the head of Stans- 
wood Bay, in the parish of Fawley, about two miles south 
of the town of that name, and some ten miles south of 
Southampton. "It comprises about three acres of land, 
with large trees upon it. This insulated spot is commonly 
called the ' Floating Island,' from its occasionally shifting 
its position several feet in wet seasons." * The explana- 
tion is that "before the district was drained, and when the 
water was headed back by a milldam,"t the plot was 
shifted from its position by the action of strong winds

upon the trees and brushwood. In 1859, Thomas 
Chcyncy and William Lane were the two farmers living at 
Stanswood. Twenty years later ( 1 878 ) , Thomas Cheyney 
was still there, but Charles Reynard had taken the place 
of William I^inc at Little Stanswood. 

Althoup,'h the name is so ancient, the cases where it 
appears, except as applied to the hamlet, are very few, and 
even of those one cannot be certain. In a patent roll of 
the time of Edward III., dated at Edinburgh, September 
20, 1335, there is a case in point: 

" Commission of oyer and terminer to Richard de 
Wylughby, John del Ker and William de Gotham, on 
Complaint by Robert, son of Henry Austyn of Suthwell 
and Robert de Morton, chaplin, that Adam de Neuton 
of Suthwell, Henry Mye, Sampson dc Oxton, Richard 
Parker, William Ryneling, William de Hokerton, Robert

William de Walcsby, ' marchaunt,' Robert Nye, ' deken,' 
Henry Aunc, ' deken.' and others broke their houses at 
Suthwell and carried away 10 sacks of wool worth lool. 

" By fine los. Nottingham." 

Three hundred years later another mention of the name 
is found, though this too might be classed as doubtful. On 
the tenth of June, 1635. the ship " Truelove," of London, 
Robert Dennis master, embarked for the " Bermoodes or 
Somer-Islands." On board this ship was the Rev. John 
Oxenbridgc, of the Hampshire family, the ancestor of the 
Bermuda Outerbridges. Most of the passengers were very 
young, and among them was a boy of thirteen, who is 


entered in Hotten's "Lists" as " Hen: Stonword." The 
ship arrived in Bermuda, but Henry either died unmarried 
or disappeared, for he founded no family there. 

All the Stanwoods by birth in America are descendants 
of Philip Stainwood, whose name appears in Gloucester in 
1652, when his second son was born. Although there is 
no direct proof, it is certain that Philip was an Englishman 
in the broader sense of the word. Leaving out of con- 
sideration the fact that the name Stanswood appears in 
England, it is certain that it would be an almost unpre- 
cedented occurrence for any but a British subject to hold 
an office in the Colony of Massachusetts Bay so early as 
1654. But in that year Philip held the office offence-viewer,, 
and three years later was elected a selectman of the town. 
He was active all his life in town affairs. 

Many stories of the origin of the family have arisen in 
its various branches, through ignorance of the fact that 
the lineage of all the Stanwoods is from Philip of Glouces- 
ter. One report has it that " Ebcnezer Stanwood, a 
Frenchman," settled in Brunswick ; an impossible nation- 
ality, since Ebenezer's birth and the birth of his two eldest 
sons " in Brunswick" are recorded in Gloucester. He was 
a grandson of Philip. There are other stories which assert 
a Dutch or German origin for the family. Among the 
Brunswick Stanwoods is a tradition that two brothers came 
to this country who had been English sheep-growers in 
Ireland. These two are represented to have been younger 
brothers of one Sir Ralph Stanwood, and they adduce as 
evidence a coat-of-arms. The date of Ebenezer's going to 
Brunswick, 17 19, the year of the Irish Emigration, might 
easily give rise to this idea, and also the fact that his eldest 
son married the daughter of an Irish emigrant. 

The relationship to Sir Ralph is the first reason for 


questioning this story. If Philip of Gloucester were the 
brother of Sir Ralph, what became of the other brother 
that tradition tells us came with him? If it is Ebenezer 
of Brunswick and his brother John that they have in mind, 
the Gloucester record of their births is sufficient proof of 
its untruth. 

The coat itself, however, is conclusive against the truth 
of the story. Underneath the arms is written, " He 
Beareth, Azure a Fess between three stars of eight points 
or. Granted and Confirmed on the 19"' Day of June 161 3 
to Sir Ralph Stanwood of Wharton in the county of Lan- 
caster, Bart." So far as can be ascertained this particular 
coat has never been recorded in England. Moreover, 
there is no place called Wharton in Lancashire, and there 
is neither a Sir Ralph Stanwood, nor in fact any Stanwood, 
among the lists of baronets, Scotch. Irish, or English. 
The coat itself bears unmistakably the signs of the stencil 
of John Cole, Sr., who made so many coats-of-arms for 
New England families to which they had no right. Age, 
use, and ignorance of heraldry on the part of the owners, 
have all brought about a belief in their authenticity to-day. 
Strange as it may seem, there is a second coat in Bruns- 
wick, with four griffins' heads upon it. This coat is as 
surely the work of John Cole as the first. The fact that 
there are two would be sufficient cause for doubt of the 
genuineness of one, if not of both. Both bear on a scroll 
across the bottom the te.xt, " By the name of Stanwood;" 
but Philip spelled and signed his name Stainwood, and 
most of his sons and grandsons did the same. In fact, 
both coats are, without a doubt, forgeries. 

There was at one time a third coat-of-arms in Ipswich, 
but as it has been destroyed it is impossible to say whether 
it was different or a copy of one of these. 


The most plausible tradition and the strongest proba- 
bility point to Philip Stainwood's British ancestry, but as 
yet nothing has been proved prior to 1652. It is cer- 
tain that he was a man of some mark, for in those days 
to be a selectman was an honor ; and he was educated 
enough to write his name, which, for those times, is saying 
a good deal. Like the progenitor of many another New 
England family, he was in all likelihood of good yeoman 

From the location of the early generations on or near 
the seacoast, the greater number were fishermen or sail- 
ors, though some were farmers. Many of them seem to 
have been active members of the church. Nine Stan- 
woods signed their names, in 1738, to a petition to Gov- 
ernor Belcher concerning a new meeting-house in Glouces- 
ter. These nine names are, strangely enough, the only 
evidence from which we can judge of the educational 
standing of the earlier members of the family. Every one 
of the nine names was a signature and not a mark. 

The more the family scattered and settled in other towns, 
the more varied became their occupations. Some accu- 
mulated wealth and became influential citizens. Among 
the wealthier was Colonel " William Stanwood, 3rd." After 
the Revolution he acquired much land in Brunswick, and 
when Bowdoin College was founded he conveyed to the 
corporation, for a nominal consideration, most of what is 
now the campus. He was made an overseer of the col- 
lege in 1798, and held the office until 181 5. One of his 
sons was graduated in 1808, and another was a student 
there for two years. Since that time no generation of the 
family has been without its representative at Bowdoin. As 
the general education of the family increased, the number 
of those entering the professions increased proportionately.

The ministry, law, medicine, journalism, teaching, and 
engineering have all had their representatives. In addi- 
tion the proportion of those who, in former years, would 
have worked at a trade has decreased, giving place to a 
large number who have been successful in the business 
world as merchants, bankers, and manufacturers. 

In 1666, Philip Stainwood was "allowed as the eldest 
sergeant of the foot-company at Gloucester," and since 
then no war has arisen which has not called out a goodly 
number of Stanwoods. 

Gloucester bears to this day evidences of the Stan- 
woods who have lived there. Stanwood Avenue and 
Stanwood Point still testify to their connection with the 
town. Dorchester, Massachusetts, has its Stanwood Street, 
and East Cleveland, Ohio, its Stanwood Road. Four 
towns in this country and one in Canada bear the name 
of the family : 

Stanwood, Snohomish Co., Washington. 
Stanwood, Mecosta Co., Michigan. 
Stanwood, Cedar Co., Iowa. 
Stanwood, Leavenworth Co., Kansas. 
Stanwood, Ontario. 

Stanwood, Iowa, can boast of a paper called the Stan- 
wood " Express," and Stanwood, Kansas, is the terminus of 
a short railroad called the Stanwood & Tipton Railroad. 

In the deeds and wills at the County Court-house at 
Salem, there is a great variety in the spelling of the name, 
which is now universally called Stanwood. Philip spelled it 
Stainwood, as did most of his sons and grandsons, except 
Ebenezer, who went to Brunswick in 1719. Upon his 
tombstone, and upon those of some of the following gener- 


ation, it is spelled Standwood. The deeds and wills give 
in addition to these: 

Stan weed. Stamwood. 

Sanwood. Staynward. 

Staynwood. Staywood. 

Stanwod. Staynewood. 

Stannwood. Stamewood. 

The Revolutionary Rolls at the State House in Boston 
give another variation — Stanword. 

It is a curious fact that nearly every member of the 
writer's branch of the family for four generations back has 
had blue eyes. This has been commented on so many 
times, and blue eyes so associated with Stanwoods, that it 
has led to an interesting study in that direction. There are 
portraits of two members of the family who belong to the 
branch farthest removed from the Ipswich Stanwoods (in 
which blue eyes predominate in such a marked manner). 
These portraits of Zcbulon and Theodore Stanwood both 
have the blue eyes characteristic of the other and younger 
branch. The founder of the Boston family, David, the 
block-maker, also had blue eyes. This is also the case 
with the greater number of the living Stanwoods, with the 
exception of the Brunswick branch. 


1. Pi 1 1 LI I' Stainwood was the only settler of the 
name who came to the colonies and left descendants. 
He is not mentioned in any ship's lists, nor has it as yet 
been discovered whence he came, nor where he landed in 
New ICngland. Whatever his origin was, on " The last day 
of the last mo.." 1652, Philip Stainwood with his wife Jane 
and his son Philip was in Gloucester, Massachusetts. His 
wife's maiden name has not been found thus far. On this 
last day of 1652, his second son, John, was born, and this 
record is the first that we know of Philip or his family. It is 
probably a fairly accurate date of his coming to Gloucester, 
as in 1654 he bought a house and land of Robert Tucker, 
and became a permanent resident of the town. The price 
is not recorded in the Town Book, where the deed maybe 
found : 

"22 — 12 — 54, 

*' Item. 4 acres Lying in Anasquam Rounded with 
Goodman Hardens Marsh at the North end and an Hand 
of upland and the River Running Round about the rest 
all which Land and house aforesayd Robert Tucker have 
Sould to Phillcp Stainwood and Do Record it to him and 
his assignes forever and do acknowledge that this house 
and Land is fully payd for. 

" By me R. Tucker." 

He appears to have occupied this house all the rest of 
his life in Gloucester. The same year the town granted 



him six acres, also lying next to Goodman Harden's land. 
This lot is described as "upland Buting upon the East 
Side of Lobster Cove . . . Being the Second Lott in num*^ 
from Goose Cove." These ten acres sufficed him until 
1665, when, on the 28th of November, we find "Philip 
Stanwoode " buying an acre from John Harden himself, 
" liinge upon the pointe betwixt Goose Cove and Lobster 

Of Philip's character and condition only a hint here and 
there is given. The clearness of his signature would give 

the impression of a fair education, and a condition a little 
better than that of some of the earlier settlers, who could 
not write their names. The fact that he bought a house 
and land so soon after his arrival would confirm this idea, 
and would imply that he had some property when he came, 
but as Mr. was never prefixed to his name, he was probably 
a small farmer in the mother country — a yeoman, in other 
words. His fellow-townsmen must have felt that he was a 
man of parts, for his public career in Gloucester shows that 
they had respect for his character and ability. As early 
as 1654 he was made fence-viewer of the town. The 
Town Book says that at a town meeting held on the "6"' 
day 1 1 mo 1654 ... It is ordered that all fence for corne 
shall Be sett up By the 10*'' of March next if the frost 
hinder none and for neglect thereof after one weeks warn- 
ing to pay the viewer for the Rectifeing of such fence as 
apeares defective dubell wagges and wee appoint Philip 

Stain and Thomas Judkin viewers for the Towne and 

Stephen Glover for the Harbour." 


His first experience at office holding must have been 
successful, for three years later, on " the last daye of the 
lo"' month," 1657, at the town meeting, " Mr. William 
Stcevens Goodman Elwell Goodman Rider Goodman Col- 
lins and Goodman Stanwoode weare chosen selectmen for 
the prudcntiall affarcs of this Town fifor this fifolloing 
Yeare." Again, December 23, 1658, the record says that 
" Townsmen for this yeare are Mr. William Stcevens Good- 
man Collins Goodman Stanwood Goodman Recford John 
Hearse." He was reelected in 1660, 1670, and 1671. 

During this time he was appointed to make the inven- 
tory to which we are indebted for his signature. There 
are three inventories of estates preserved at Salem to 
which his name is signed as an appraiser. Two of the 
inventories, those of William Brown, May 13, 1662, and of 
kich.ird Window in 1665, have no particular interest, as 
they are copies and not the original documents. The 
third, taken in 1661 with two other Gloucester men, is 
the original document, drawn up and signed by the men 
themselves. The inventory was made of the estate of 
" Isble Babson," one of the original settlers of the town. 
This autograph of Thilip's may be seen at the Court-house 
at Salem. 

.Among the Gloucester records there is only one more 
glimpse of this earliest Stanwood. In " 1666 4"' mo 
rhilip Stanwood is allowed as the eldest Seargent of the 
foot Company at Gloucester." His warlike proclivities 
were handed down to his sons and grandsons, who nearly 
all saw fighting in their day, a few of whom gained some 
rank in the army. 

Philip lived but about twenty years in Gloucester, for he 
died on August 7. 1672. His widow, Jane, September 12, 
1673, was married to John Pearce " by mayjor harthorne." 


They lived together twenty-two years, and she lived 
widowed a second time for eleven years more. This 
proves that Philip, if he were a contemporary of his wife 
or only a few years older, was a comparatively young man 
when he died, Jane lived with Philip twenty years to our 
knowledge, a widow one year, twenty-two years with John 
Pearce, who died in 1695, and eleven years a widow again. 
This makes sixty-four years ; in other words, she would 
have been eighty-four years old when she died, if she were 
twenty when she came to Gloucester — then the mother of 
two children. If Philip were three or four years her senior 
he would have been but forty-three or forty-four when he 
died. The date of his birth according to this reasoning 
would have fallen somewhere between 1628 and 1630. 
For so young a man his career was creditable. 

During the latter part of John Pearce's life he and his 
wife seem to have been in straitened circumstances, for a 
note in the Town Book says that " John Pearce is very 
old, almost bed-rid, and relieved by the town." He died 
two years later. His wife died August 18, 1706. 

Jane Pearce was appointed administratrix of her first 
husband's estate, and this seems to be the only document 
directly relating to Philip and his family, in existence. 

" Jane Stainewood now Jane being apoynted 

administratrix to the estate of her late husband Phillip 
Stainewood, deceased, being now married to another man, 
the children y' are of age desiring there portions of their 
mother these are to informe the Honered court that we the 
S*^ Administratrix of my children, are come to this agree-

Nothing has been discovered thus far of Philip Stain- 
wood's wanderings before he came to Gloucester with his 
wife and child, but the house that he chose and bought 
there was the one that he lived in until he died. He accu- 
mulated land around it, making in all a farm of eleven 
acres, to leave to his children. This homestead forms 
the nucleus of the Gloucester settlement of Stanwoods, for 
Babson tells us that of the thirteen males bearing the name 
of Stanwood who are in the Directory for 1876, nearly all 
live very near the place that, two hundred years before, 
Philip chose for his home. 

Philip, the eldest son, married a Gloucester woman, and 
settled down after his father's death to farm the land with 
his brother John. He lived and died in Gloucester, and 
his sons lived, married, had children, and died there; so 
that in the old times there were many bearing the name in 
Gloucester who were descendants of the younger Philip. 
At present there are very few there. One of his grand- 
sons. Job, after marrying twice in Gloucester, went to 
\ Mount Desert to settle. Job Stanwood left his oldest son, 
Zebulon, behind in Gloucester, but took with him his wife 
and younger children. They settled at Duck Brook, and 
other children were born to them there. One of Job's 
sons, Enoch, with Eunice his wife, went to Yarmouth, Nova 
Scotia, sometime before 1 796. He founded a family there. 



Thus from the younger Philip are descended a small 
Gloucester family, and all those living in Mount Desert and 
Nova Scotia. The present head of the family, Mr. James 
B. Stanwood, of Cincinnati, is a descendant of Job's son 
Zebulon, whom he left behind in Gloucester when he went 
to Mount Desert. 

John, second son of Philip the emigrant, had three 
grandsons who moved away from Gloucester. One of 
these, Charles, went to Salisbury, and had children there, 
two of whom, Humphrey and Abel, crossed the river to 
Newburyport and settled there. The two other grand- 
sons, John and Joseph, the sons of Jonathan, went to 
Newbury and settled. One of John's sons, John, went to 
Newburyport, and his son, Samuel, moving farther away, 
went to Lowell and founded a small branch of the family 
there. Joseph's sons, with the exception of Peter, who 
went to Newburyport, all stayed in Newbury; but three of 
his grandsons, Joseph, William, and Benjamin, settled in 
West Newbury. Joseph the younger died in Lowell, 
where he had gone to live. Roughly speaking, from John 
are descended all the Stanwoods of Newbury and West 
Newbury, with three small branches in Newburyport, one 
in Salisbury, and one in Lowell. There seem to be very 
few of John's descendants in the male line in Gloucester 
at the present time. 

Samuel, the third son of Philip the elder, was the only 
one to leave Gloucester. He married Hannah Pressee, of 
Amesbury, and after about ten years of married life in 
Gloucester moved to her home. Of Samuel's sons, three 
left Amesbury. The eldest, Ebenezer, made his way, in 
1 719, to Brunswick, Maine, where he became the ancestor 
of one of the largest branches of the family. From him 
come also many of the Stanwoods who have lived in Port-

land, Harpswell, and Freeport. Another son, John, went 
to Pemaquid, Maine, but left no descendants. 

The third son who left home was Joseph, who married 
his cousin, Esther Stanwood, and went to Salisbury to live. 
Two sons were born to him there, John, and Joseph, who 
died young. John, the elder son, went to Newbury and 
married, and there three children were born to him. 
From Newbury he went back to Salisbury, and served in 
His Majesty's army in 1759 and 1760, which set out "to 
totally reduce Canada." The next year he sold his land in 
Salisbury and moved over the river to Newburyport, where 
he stayed for the rest of his life. Two generations later, 
two of John's grandsons left Newburyport. One, John, 
went to Hartford, Connecticut, and founded a family there ; 
another, Henry, went to Michigan. From this John comes 
the largest branch of Newburyport Stanwoods. 

One of Samuel's grandsons, Joseph, the son of Philip, 
left Amesbury for Newbury, and his son William, moving 
to Newburyport, gave rise to another branch of Stanwoods 
in that town. There is no representation of Samuel's 
branch of the family in Gloucester. 

P'rom Jonathan, the youngest of Philip's sons, come, 
according to Babson, the great majority of the Gloucester ■^ 
Stanwoods. He says that nearly all of the thirteen in the ,' 
directory for 1876 are descendants of this son; but not 
all of Jonathan's sons stayed in Gloucester, for Ebenezer 
married Hannah Warner, of Ipswich, and moved there. 
From him come all the Ipswich Stanwoods. A grandson 
of Ebenezer, William, went to Portsmouth, N.H., and a 
generation later a son of William's brother, Isaac, went to 
Augusta, Maine, followed by a nephew. Sons of both uncle 
and nephew went from Augusta to Boston, so that most 
of the Boston Stanwoods are from the Augusta branch 


of the family. Two more great-grandsons of Jonathan 
left Gloucester. David [Lemuel, David] went to Boston 
and lived in Love Lane ; the other, Winthrop [Nehemiah, 
Nehcmiah], a sea captain, moved to Cape Elizabeth, Maine, 
and settled there. This latter branch is almost extinct. 

It is strange that for so many generations, for four at 
least, with the exception of the Mt. Desert and Bruns- 
wick settlers, the whole family remained in various towns 
in Essex County. They seem to have been a clannish 
people, with no great tendency to roam. 


2. PHILIP STAINWOOD. (Philip, i.) 

Philip Stainwood, the oldest son of the settler, either was 
born before Philip the elder came to Gloucester, or else no 
record of his birth was entered on the Town Book. The 
former supposition seems the more likely of the two, but in 
any case the date of his birth is still unknown. There is 
but one record of his life before his marriage in 1677. 
This is the fact that in 1676 he went to war against the 
Indians under the famous Captain Samuel Brocklebank. 
For his services against King Philip, he received ^3-08-06. 
This sum is entered August 24, 1676, in the lists of assign- 
ments of wages to the different towns from which these 
soldiers served. The town undertook the payment, and 
gave the money to the families of the men, so that they 
received immediate aid. The amount was credited to the 
towns upon their colonial taxes. Two grants of land were 
also made him by the town. One of these, given in the dis- 
tribution of 1687, lay on Pigeon Hill ; the other lot, granted 
eight years before, was entered on the Town Book "16: 
12: 79," when the townsmen gave "to Philip Stainwood 
seven ackres of ground att Ketle Cove Laid out and 
bounded by the Lot Layers Leying next unto John Fitchs 
his lot being the second Lot in numbar one end buting 
toward the sea." Philip and his brothers had many land 
transactions among themselves. 



In 1677, on the twenty-second of November, he was 
married to Mary Blackwell by Deputy-governor Symonds. 
Mary Stainwood had less than two months of married 
life, for the record tells us that " Mary the wiff of Philep 
Stainwood descased the 3 of January 1678." Five years 
after, October 30, 1683, he married Esther, daughter of 
Thomas and Mary Hray. Major Saltonstall performed the 
ceremony. They had eight children, two of whom died 

riiilip, and in fact all his brothers, appear to have been 
men of less education and less importance than their father. 
So far as can be found out, no one of them held an office 
of any kind. The only mention of them in the doings of 
the town arc their grants of soldiers' lots for their military

a. JOHN STAINWOOD. (Philip, i.) 

On " the last of the last mo 1652," John, the second 
son of Philip Stainwood, was born in Gloucester, Massa- 
chusetts. What is true of his brother Philip is true also 
of him, that we know nothing of him during hischildhood 
and early manhood. On January 25, 1675/6, a young man 
of twenty-three, he was in the garrison at Lancaster. His 


pay amounted to ^^03-01-08. When King Philip's war 
broke out he, Hke his brother, joined the company of 
Captain Samuel Brocklebank. He is credited on July 24, 
1676, with ;^ I -02-00 as pay for his service, and was given 
the usual soldier's lots. One of them, granted in 1679, lot 
six at Kettle Cove, he exchanged with John Sargeant soon 
after for a lot on the Cape, number seven. " Att a town 
meeting held in Glostar february 27"' 1687/8 given to 
John Stanwood six acres of upland ground at the Cape 
and Laid out by the Lot Layers the 19"' of July 89 being 
the Sixty fifth Lott in number and layeth by pigeon hill 
haveing the Lot that fell to ye house of Silvester (Eve- 
leth?) on the one side and the Lot that fell to Isaac prince 
on the other side." There seems to be some confusion of 
dates, but this is the way the Town Book reads. John 
apparently owned no more land, except what may have 
come to him as his share of his father's estate. 

On December 9, 1680, John Stainwood was married to 
Lydia Butler, in Boston, by " Capten John Hull." The 
records of Gloucester, entered at Salem, give her name as 
" Lidea Cuttler." They had nine children. " Sargent 
John Stainwood deceased January the 25"' day 1706." 

It seems to be almost beyond dispute that this Lydia But- 
ler, or Cutler, the wife of John, is the Lydia Stanwood 
who made the three depositions to be found in the Boston 
Court-house, and a fourth in the Town Hall in Wiscasset, 
Maine. There is great confusion as to her age, but the 
subject matter is in all four cases almost the same. The 
first deposition, dated Boston, June 23, 1737, gives her age 
as seventy-five, and her residence " Gloster." This depo- 
sition was testimony in the case of John Mason. On Decem- 
ber 29, of the same year, another was filed. "The Deposi- 
tion of Lydia Stanwood Late of Gloucester in the County 


of Essex, but now residing in Boston in the County of 
Suffolk Aged about eighty years and of a perfect mind 
and memory who Testifies and says that she hved at 
Shecpscot at the house of Thomas Messer * her father 
untiil she was about Ten years of age after that which was 
about seventy years ago, she went To Damariscotty and 
lived with John Taylor one year, at that place and the 
deponent further Sayth that from that time she Lived 
with Said rayk)r till the first Indian Warr. from year to 
year she went over to said Damariscotty and that the said 
Taylor Improved Land on the West side of s*^ Damariscotty 
River from the Lower Falls of Salt water downwards by 
the river side to a considerable distance to a Great Gully 
that L.iy about half wa\' between Said Taylors House and 
the Ihnise of Walter Phillips which stood on a high piece 
of ground South wards or down the River wards from the 
Said Ciully ; That at the said Gully there was a Division 
l*'cnce Running back westward towards the Meadow Be- 
tween said Taylor's Improvement and Said Phillips's Im- 
provem''. " In i 742, the two other depositions were made. 
The one in Boston is in substance like the foregoing, but 
gives her age as seventy-nine, and further adds that she 
" lives about twenty miles from the Court and on account 
of Age and bodily infirmities Cannot appear in Person." 
The document in Wiscasset. .it the head of the Sheepscot 
River, adds some new facts to her life, and increases her 
age. " Lidia Stanwood of Gloucester in the County of 
Essex aged about I'^ighty two Years testifies & says y' she 
was brought up at Shccpscut in ye Eastern parts of New 
England vS: lived at the house of her father Thos Messer 
on ye West Side of s'' Shecpscut River, who lived on ye 
North West side of the head of the Cove next North west of 

• Probably Thomas Mercer. 


the Salt water falls of s'^ Sheepscut River, that she lived 
in her said father's house till she was seventeen years old 
and married, which time was before the first Indian Wars 
in the Eastern parts which began ye year after King 
Philip's Indian Wars — only excepting one year that She 
lived at Damariscotta in the house of John Taylor." This 
deposition Lydia herself signed in Gloucester on July 19, 
1742. There is no record of a Lydia who married a 
Stanwood so early, other than this Lydia Butler, and from 
this fact it seems that she must have been a young widow 
when John married her. Taking her age as she gave it in 
the Wiscasset deposition, she was seventeen when she mar- 
ried Butler, and before she was twenty she had become a 
widow and married John Stainwood. There are almost no 
records of the Sheepscott settlement, for it was wiped out 
during the Indian wars, and therefore there is no way of find- 
ing out who the first husband was or how he met his death. 
The administration of the estate of John Stainwood, of 
Gloucester, was given to his eldest son, John, on March 18, 
1705/6. The inventory of his estate is on file in the 
Court-house at Salem :

6. SAMUEL STAINWOOD. (Philip, i.) 

On March 5, 1658, Samuel Stainwood, the third son of 
PhiHp and Jane, was born in Gloucester. When only 
seventeen years old he went to war with the Indians, as 
his two elder brothers did. On February 29, 1675, he 
is among the soldiers credited to Major Walderne who 
served under the major personally. His wages amounted 
to " 02 02 00." Before August, 1676, he had come under 
the command of Captain Jonathan Poole, for on the twenty- 
fourth of that month Captain Poole's pay-roll contains his 
name credited with "04. 10. 00." " Gloscester-Town " 
on the same day was assigned to pay him "02 11 06 " for 
his services. 

Samuel received a soldier's lot in the distribution which 
took place in 1679, being granted seven acres at Kettle 
Cove, next to Hugh Row, lot number seven. He must 
also have received or bought two other lots, for in 1679 


he sold lot ten to James Davis, Jr., and in 1687, lot sixty 
to John Hadlcy. In 16H6. un November 16. he was 
married to Hannah Pressce, of Amesbur)-, by the Rev. 
Mr. Thomas Wells, the minister of that place. This 
marriage is the first on the records of the town of Ames- 
btiry. After five children had been born to Samuel and 
Hannah in Gloucester, they, for some reason, removed to 
Amcsbury, sometime between 1695 and 1698. In 1704, 
he severed his last connection with Gloucester by selling 
the land that remained to him there. He bought a home- 
stead in Amesbury, upon which, in 1717. he put a 
mortgage of C^"/ . The facts of Samuel's life that are 
recorded arc fewer in number than those of his older 
brothers. He died in 1726, aged sixty-eight. On June 
6th of that year a letter of administration was granted to 
his widow, Hannah, who, on the same day, presented an 
inventory of his estate amounting to £^^.

35. John. b. August 22. 17CX). He never married, but was a 

soldier .ill Ins life. There was a tradition that he went to 
Hruiiswick with his brother Kbenezer. and this is at last 
confirmed. Ebenezer went to settle, but John went as a 
soldier. The first record e.xtant is of his service under 
Captain John Ciyles. with the rank of ceniinel. from 
June 10 to November 3, 1725. This comi^any acted as 
garrison at Fort St. George in Brunswick. The next 
pay-roll, endorsed in 1727, was for the time between 
Augxist 18th and December 21st of that year, and shows 


that he was still in the same Company with the same rank. 
He remained under Captain Gyles at St. George's Fort 
until May 20, 1737. One pay-roll is from May 21 to 
November 5, 1734; the second from May 21, 1735, to 
May 20, 1736; and the third from May 21, 1736, to May 
20, 1737. For the next two years there is no record. 
From September 13, 1739, ^^ May 20, 1740, he was 
a centinel in a company under Captain Arthur Savage, 
stationed at Fort Frederick. A muster-roll of Captain 
Savage's company shows that he served from May 21 to 
November 20, 1740, and from November 21st to Decem- 
ber 1 6th of the same year. Then there is a gap of six 
years, for from November 20, 1746, to January 31, 1747, 
is the next term of his service recorded. His rank was 
the same, but the company was commanded by Captain 
Joshua Moody. From February ist to March 31st he 
was under the same command at Fort Frederick ; and also 
from April i, 1747, to March 28, 1748. On March 29, 
1748, Captain Samuel Moody took command, and John 
Stanwood served under him as centinel until August 29, 
1748. On August 27, 1748, he made his will, and died 
within two days, for the entry on the muster-roll reports 
him as deceased on August 29th. His will is in the 
volume of " Maine Wills " : 

" Whereas I John Stanwood of Pemaquid in the

Jonathan Stanwood was born in Gloucester on March 
29, 1661. lie was married December 27, 1688, to Mary 
Nichols, of " Jemaco " or West Amesbury. by Mr. Emerson. 
There is almost nothing known of his life, although he 
lived to be fifty-seven years old. He died in 1745, and the 
inventory of his estate was presented for probate May 3 ist. 
His real estate amounted to ;^i 87-10-00, and his personal 
estate to ;^i 3-07-00.

Joshua Riggs, guardian of Jonathan Stanwood, non-com- 
pos mentis, petitioned the court to be allowed to sell 
Jonathan's property to pay his debts, and stated that the 
debts exceeded the estate by ^22-9-4. In pursuance of 
this request a committee of three was appointed to make 
an inventory of Jonathan's estate. The items of the 
inventory consist entirely of land and his share of his 
father Jonathan's house, amounting in all to £40-13-4. 
All of his land apparently was not sold to satisfy his 
creditors, for after his death, in 1760, Joshua Riggs sold 
a " piece of land which belonged to the s'd Jonathan dec^. 
which his father Jonathan gave to him in exchange for a 
wood lot, which land is one half ye land which sd. Jon- 
athan the Father possessed in that place, the other half 
being in the possession of David by their father's will." 
Jonathan may have married Rachel Lull in 1739, unless 
she was the second wife of Jonathan (20). If she mar- 
ried this Jonathan, no children are recorded.

Mr. John White, to Sarah Harradcn, on December 18, 
1718. Mrs. Stanwood died on December 23, 1732, and 
he married Lydia, the widow of John Mogridge and 
daughter of Samuel Davis, on January 20, 1736; the Rev. 


Mr. Benjamin Bradstreet performed the ceremony. The 
date of Philip's death is not positively known, but Mrs. 
Lydia Stanwood married her third husband, Samuel 
Hodfjkins, in 1756. She died April 13, 1789, aged eighty-

David Stainwood, gentleman, was born February 14, 
1695, ill Gloucester, Massachusetts, He was married on 
November 24, 1720, by the Rev. Mr. John White, to 
Susanna Davis, the daughter of Lieut. James Davis. 
Babson says, in his " History of Gloucester," that they had 
ten children, but only nine are found on the town records. 
The records of Gloucester give their youngest child as 
" — mcs (son)," but the church records give "James of 
David and Susanna Stanwood baptized February 17, 
1739-40." In 1745," David Stanwood, Gent, of Gloucester" 
sold a house and land in Sudbury to James Bowdoin, of 
Boston, for .i^ioo. Three years after, he quitclaimed to the 
estate of his father in favor of his brother Philip. David, in 
1738, was a proprietor of New Gloucester, Maine, but evi- 


dently did not stay there, as his son James was born in 
Gloucester in 1740. The date of his death has not been

John Stainwood was born September 26, 168 1, in 
Gloucester, Massachusetts. He was a mariner. On June 
16, 1707, the Rev. Mr. White married John Stainwood 
and Deborah Robinson. Mrs. Stanwood died March 16, 
1733, and her husband in 1753 or 4. The administration 
of John Stainwood's estate was granted April 8, 1754, 
to Deacon John Low, and amounted to ;^4i-io-9, of 
which the house and land were worth ;^35-i3-4.

'30. JONAIHAN STAIWVOOD. (Jom.n. 3.) 

Jonathan Stainwood was born in Gloucester, Massa- 
chusetts, on September 12, 1683. On August 21, 1707, 
he married Dorcas Robinson, of Gloucester. He seems 
to have been often in debt, for the Court-house in Boston 
contains at least two attachments of his property and one 
arrest. In 171^ lie gave a promissorv note to William 

Webster for ^24, which he apparently failed to redeem, for 
"Joshua Wroe and other executors of William Webster's 
will" had him arrested on August 21, 1721. Again, on 
June 19. 1727, the goods of Jonathan Stainwood, coaster, 
were attached for a debt of £\-\6-o to Nathaniel Kan- 
ney, victualler, of Boston. In 1734 he gave over his in- 
terest in his father's estate to his brother John. 

Jonathan and his brother James appear on a list of 
people who wished to settle in the old town of Falmouth, 
now Portland. Maine, in 1728. " 1728 at a legal Town 


meting of the freeholders and other Inhabitants &c. Mr. 

Benj. Yorke was Chosen Moderator. 


" Voted that the sunderry Persons now admited to come 
and settle as Inhabitants among us : and to Recieue the 
Rites of the Town is on Condition of there settling 
personally of them Selves and to comply with ye formar 
votes of the Town which is to pay two pounds Each 
person and to Buld and settle In twelf monthes and not 
to sell in seven years : or ealas the Land to return to 
the Town again." As there seems to be no further record 
of him in Gloucester, he may in reality have settled in 
Falmouth, though there are no further records of either of 
the brothers in that place. 

Perhaps Jonathan had a second wife, Rachel Lull, 
whom he married in 1739; but it is uncertain whether 
she was the wife of Jonathan (20) or Jonathan (44). At 
any rate, no children are recorded.

James Stainwood was born March 17, 1690, in Glouces- 
ter. He married December 25, 1712, Mary Davis. In 
1728 he was admitted as a citizen of Falmouth, Maine, but 


apparently did not settle there. Nothing further is re- 
corded of his life until, in 1769, " in consideration of the love 
and good-will he bears his daughter the widow of Isaac 
Davis of Gloucester, deceased, and because she has sup- 
ported Supplied & attended " himself and her mother, 
James gives her "half his dwelling-house and land." The 
date of his death is not in the Town Books.

:12. Klii:NK/KR STAXWOOD. (S.\muel, 6.) 

" Kbenezer Standwood," as he himself wrote his name, 
the founder of the Brunswick, Maine, branch of the family, 
was born in Gloucester, July 20, 1695. His parents moved 
ti) Amesbury very soon after his birth, and in that town 
his boyhood was spent. In 171 7, he began his wandering 
toward Maine, and as early as May iith had reached 
York. On that date, from Kittery, Sir William Pepperell 
sent the following document: 

"Kittery May the 11"' 17 17. May it Please your 
ExcTcy, I have Sent you under the Conduct of Sarg't 
Jon Kingsbury ten men Imprest at York, viz :

Ebenezer Stanwood Rich'd Flood 

" Per order of your obedient Servante 
" Wm Pepperell." 

It is said that Ebenezer in this same year owned land at 
the west end of Brunswick, but the generally accepted 
opinion seems to be that he came to Brunswick in 17 19.* 

Ebenezer was prominent all through his life in the affairs 
of the town of Brunswick.f In 1723/4, he was a soldier in 
the Indian wars. He served under Captain John Giles with 
the quality of centinel, and was stationed at Fort George. 
He kept up this connection with the army, and from 
1747 to 1749 he bore the rank of sergeant in Captain 
David Dunning's company, chiefly engaged in " hauling 
stores." From 1753 to 1757 he was in Captain John Get- 
chell's company, again as centinel, but in 1762 he is re- 
turned as lieutenant. 

In 1732, Ebenezer signed his name as deputy sheriff 
to an order for an arrest, and in 1744 and 1745 he was a 
selectman of the town. 

On May 19, 1742, Ebenezer moved to the end of the 
"Twelve Rod Road," to the shores of Maquoit Bay, where 
he bought two hundred and six acres of land for i^30. 
This land lay near the lots belonging to Mr. James Dunning 
and Mr. Woodside. 

Ebenezer Stanwood was, besides being an active citizen, 
an influential member of the church. His name occurs in the 
list of members of the first church in Brunswick, which is 
in the handwriting of the Rev. John Miller. Mr. Miller 
was ordained in 1762; but long before this Ebenezer 
must have been a member of the church, for " in May 1745, 

* See also the Introduction. 

t " Hist. Brunswick, Topsham and Harpswell," by Wheeler. 


Deacon Samuel Hinckley was selected as an agent to pro- 
cure a minister, but not meeting with success, in Octo- 
ber, Mr. Kbenezcr Stanwood was appointed agent for that 
purpose, and was promised 40 s. for his Services." No 
preacher was procured until 1747, when the Rev. Robert 
Dunlaj), from Antrim, Ireland, a graduate of the Univer- 
sity of Edinburgh, came to the church from New Castle, 
Maine, where he had been preaching. His ordination took 
place in lioston. Deacon Samuel Hinckley and Mr. Eben- 
ezcr Stanwood were the delegates chosen to go to Boston in 
behalf of the church and town, to receive him as their 
minister. Two years before his death in 1790. he was 
made a ileacun of the church. 

Kbenezcr Stanwood married sometime before 17 19, Jane, 
whose maiden name «ind place of residence are still undis- 
covered All his children were born in Brunswick. 

On July Ji, 1772, Kbenezcr Stanwood died in Bruns- 
wick, and was buried in the old cemetery, on the road to 
Maquoit, near the site of the first meeting-house. His 
tombstone ami thai of his wife still stand side by side in 
the deep grass, and near by is a stone bearing a triple 
inscription. In fact, all but one of Ebenezer's children are 
buried here. Kbcnezer's stone is quite legible, and reads 
as follows : 





JULY 21, 1772, 



Beside his grave is his wife's : 





APRIL THE 30TH |772 


A little beyond these, sunk more deeply in the grass, is 
a broad, low slate stone which bears three inscriptions to 
Ebenezer's three sons, who died early :

1735 IN 


1752 IN YE 3IST 









The body of his eldest daughter, Jane, who died in her 
jjirlhood, rests near them : 





JAN»»Y 5TM 1742 


This ancient cemetery is a quiet place, neglected and 
overgrown, and the old " twelve rod road " to Maquoit, 
deep in sand, passes by its gate. About a third of the 
gravestones bear the names of Ebenezcr Stanwood's kin.

Philip Stanwood was born in Amesbury, Massachusetts, 
on July 15, 1707. Like his brother John, he was a soldier 
in his early days in Captain Gyles's company, with the 
rank of centincl. From May 21, 1734. to May 20, 
1735, he was at St. George's Fort. Brunswick, and two 
more muster-rolls show that he served from May 21 to 


November 5, 1735, and again from May 21, 1736, to 
January 16, 1736/7. 

Sometime before 1743, either in Brunswick or after his 

return to Newbury, he married Isable . All his 

children were born in Newbury. In May, 1756, Philip is 
returned as enlisted out of Colonel John Greenleaf's regi- 
ment into Colonel Jonathan Bagley's, Captain Stephen 
Webster's company. He was engaged for the expedition 
against Crown Point. 

Philip Stanwood died in Newbury in 1757, and the 
guardianship of his minor children was granted to his 
widow on December 26, 1757. It was not until 1764, when 
his son, Joseph, reached the age of twenty-one, that Isable 
Stanwood, who had meantime married a Hardy, brought 
to the probate court her account of her first husband's 
estate, as its administratrix. At " Essex March 18, 1764,

4(). JOSHPH STANWOOD. (Samlel. 6.) 

No date of birth is given for Joseph Stanwood in the 
Gloucester records, but there seems to be no reason why 
he and the nameless child of Samuel and Hannah may 
not have been one and the same. If that is so, he was 
born March i(j. 1693, and in that case was nine years 
younger than his wife, Ksthcr. He went to Amesbury with 
his father and mother, and his name occurs in the records 
there. On November 6, 1 721, he married, in Gloucester, 
his cousin. l".sther .Stanwood, the daughter of Philip Stan- 
wofxl. Jr.. and settled in Salisbury. They certainly had 
one son Joseph, who died in infancy, and probably a son 
John, who also was born in Salisbury.

I'-benezcr .Stanwood. the ancestor of the Ipswich branch 
of the family, was born in Gloucester, June 5, 1699. On 
October 26, 172^, he recorded his intention of marriage 
to Hannah Warner, of Ij)swich. I'lbenezer Stanwood was 
still .1 young man when ho died, leaving a widow and two, 
antl perhaps three, children. The records of Gloucester 
say that " l^bcnezer Stanwood aged — year Dyed Sept. 
9, 1727." The administration of his estate was given 
to his widow, Hannah. He was a fairl)' rich man for his 
day, for the inventory showed that his estate was worth 
..^235 : 13d., of which £2 : 5 were " for fishing craft and 
boats." His widow. Hannah, married Thomas Hodgkins, 
of Ipswich, January 20, 1729-30.

46. DAVID STANWOOD. (Jonathan, 7.) 

On March 12, 1702, David Stanwood was born in 
Gloucester, Massachusetts. He married Dorcas Randall 
on May 8, 1733. 

In 1745, he came home, wounded, from Cape Breton^ 
and obtained a grant of ^5 from the provincial Legislature. 
The next year the Legislature made him a further grant of 
^8, and recommended that he be placed in the garrison at 
Brunswick " in room of an effective man.'" 

In 1746, he signed a bond for ^160 to Thomas Hutch- 
inson and Thomas Goldthwait. It is from this bond, the 
original of which is preserved in the Boston Court-house, 

that his signature is taken. His estate was attached in 
1755 for ^^26-13-4, debt to Nathaniel Bond, of Boston. 
In this case the sheriff " attached a chair and left a sum- 
mons at his house." 

David Stanwood made a will : 

" In the Name of God, Amen, this fourth day of June 
Anno Domini one Thousand Seven hundred and Sixty 
Eight, I, David Stanwood, of Gloucester in the County of 
Essex and Province of Massachusetts Bay, Husbandman,

47. NEHEMIAH STANWOOD. (Jonathan, 7.) 

Nehemiah Stanwood wsls born November 15, 1704, in 
Gloucester. He was a weaver by trade. On January 14, 
1 73 1, he was married to Bethiah Elwell, by the Rev. Mr. 
John White. Mrs. Stanwood died after 1751, and Octo- 
ber I, 1757, Nehemiah published his intention of mar- 
riage with Patience Harraden, but there is no record of 
their marriage. Two years later, on July 14, 1759, he 
again recorded his intention, this time with Sarah Tucker. 
He certainly married Miss Tucker, though there is no 
record of the fact, for in 1760 Nehemiah Stanwood and 
Sarah, his wife, sold land in Gloucester. 

On May 6, 1784, the administration of Nehemiah's 
estate was granted to his son Nehemiah ; John and Jesse 
Saville gave bond also " as suretie to exhibit an inventory 
by the sixth of August." On April 5, 1785, the Judge of 
Probate for Essex County, the Hon. Benjamin Greenleaf, 
appointed Mr. James Day, Mr. Isaac Denison, and Mr. 


Zebulon Lufkin, all freeholders of Gloucester, a com- 
mittee to give Mrs. Sarah Stanwood, the widow of Nehe- 
miah, her third of his estate. The committee reported : 

"GLOCESTEk, June 21, 1785.

On March 27, 1759, Jonathan, aged 18, enlisted in 
Colonel William Allen's regiment and took the oath of 
fidelity. The report gives his residence as Gloucester, 
and his tather Nehemiah Stanwood. He had been in 
the expedition to Lake George in 1758. 

In 1776, Jonathan's name appears on the tax-list of the 
town of Hardwick, Mass., for 2s. 6d. poll-tax. He served 


from March lo to December 22, 1777, as private in Colonel 
Brooks's regiment, and was reported on December 22d as 
"left, being sick, and never joined afterwards." How- 
ever, on January 12, 1778, he is given as belonging to 
Captain Warren's company. Colonel Allen's regiment, 
on a muster and pay roll, and is reported on furlough. 
On June 5, 1780, he enlisted under command of Captain 
George Webb, and marched into camp at Spring- 
field on July nth. He is on a list of six months' men, 
and a description is given of him. His age was thirty- 
nine years, stature five feet seven, and his complexion 
dark; his residence was either Hard wick or Petersham.

55. JOB STANWOOD. (Philip, 14.) 

Job Stanwood, the eldest great-grandson of the original 
settler, was born in Gloucester, February 14, 1727. 
Though but a lad of eighteen, Job joined the Louisburg 
expedition in 1745, and lost his left arm. Among the 
papers of the Massachusetts Archives are at least five of 
Job Stanwood's petitions to the General Court for a pension : 

" To his Excellency William Shirley Esq'' Captain Gen- 
eral and Governur in Chief in and over his Majesty's Prov- 
ince of the Massachusetts Bay in New England, To the 
hon'" Council & Representatives of the said Province in 
General Court assembled April, 1748. The Petition of 
Job Stanwood of Glocester in the County of Essex hum- 
bly sheweth — 

" That your Petitioner at the siege of Louisbourg, being 
a soldier in Cap* Samuel Davis's Company in Col : Hale's 
Regiment, had the Misfortune to lose his left arm, as he 
has formerly set forth to your Excellency and Honours. 
That he has received by three several Grants on his three 


former Petitions to the hon''" Court, the Sum of Twenty 
four pounds Ten Shillings which he very gratefully 
acknowledges, but begs leave now again to shew forth to 
your l-lxcellcncy and Honours that he has all this last long 
Winter been sick, and for his support and to pay his Doc- 
tors has been obliged to expend more than the generous 
allowances formerly made him and has been brought to 
the necessity of borrowing Money for his Subsistance which 
obliges him to a further resort to your Excellency and 
Honours that you would be pleased out of your wonted 
Goodness and Bounty to make him some further Allow- 
ance for his present Reliefe, and support as to your Ex- 
cellency and Honours shall seem most meet and as in 
duty bound for your Excellency and honours he shall

" Joi'. Stanwood." 

Tt) this api)eal the General Court, on April 7th, voted to 
allow him jC\2 los. Hut in April, 1749, Job filed his 
fourth petition, wherein he sets forth that " though he has 
lived as frugall}- as possible," he has " expended the last 
grant of Twelve pounds Ten Shillings," and is obliged to 
make a further appeal. On April 13, 1749. his petition 

was read, and it was " ordered that the sum of fifteen 
pounds (new tenor bills) be paid out of the Public Treas- 
ur\- annually to the within named Job Stanwood during 
his life in Consideration of his Sufterings in the late Expe- 
dition against Cape Breton." On March 14, 1776, Job 
sent another petition to General Court that his pension be 
paid, and this was granted. (Mass. Archives, Vol. 180, 
P- 352.) 


His occupation after his return from Cape Breton is 
given in a deed at Salem, Massachusetts, as " Shore 
man." On September 14, 1749, he married Hannah, the 
daughter of Richard Byles, of Gloucester. She had but 
one child, Zebulon, and died March i, 1753, at the age 
of twenty-four. Sometime before 1755, Job was married 
to his second wife, whose name was Martha Bradstreet. 
In 1762, Job and Martha sold their land in Gloucester, so 
it is presumably about this time that he and his family 
moved to Duck Brook, Mt. Desert, Maine, where they 

Job Stanwood died at Duck Brook, on July 27, 1776. 
Robert Young was appointed his administrator, June 3, 
1788, and his inventory of the estate, dated August 5, 
1788, amounted to ^34-9-9.

68. HKNJAMIN STANWOOD. (Philif, 14.) 

Hcnjamin Stanwood was born in Gloucester on Novem- 
ber 17, 1737. What is known of him is entered in the 
town records as follows: 

" Stanwood, Benjamin and Patty Oakes intend marriage 
October 24, 1757." 

" Patty wife of Benjamin Stanwood dyed." 

" Stanwood, Benjamin and Ruth Andrews intend mar- 
riage November 21, 1761." 

According to the church records, he married Ruth 
Andrews on December 18, 1761. 

Child of Benjamin and Patty: 

147. Patience, b. April 15, 1759. 

61. ABRAHAM STANWOOD. (Philip, 14.) 

Abraham Stanwood was born in Gloucester, January 8, 
1733/4. According to the church records, he married 
Mrs. Rachel Cass, March 22, 1772. He enlisted January 
12, 1776, in William Pearson's (3d) company, which was 
stationed at Gloucester for coast defence, and reenlisted on 
March ist and June ist, in the same company, as a pri- 
vate. On ]une 21st he enlisted as seaman on the sloop 


"Tyrannicide," under Captain John Fisk, and served on 
board until September ist, when he again enlisted as pri- 
vate in Captain William Pearson's company. Abraham's 
death is not recorded. On May 28, 18 19, his widow, 
Rachel Stanwood, was buried ** from the house of the 
late Solomon Lane," her son-in-law. 
Child of Abraham and Rachel : 

148. Sarah, b. March 12, 1775; m. March 11, 1792, Solomon 

Lane, Jr., of Gloucester. 

68. SOLOMON STANWOOD. (David, 15.) 

Solomon Stanwood, commander of the brigantine 
" Success," was born in Gloucester, April 18, 1736. On 
November 20, 1755, he married Betty Bennett, of Glouces- 
ter. She had two daughters, and then " Betty wife of 
Solomon Stanwood dyed December 28, 1760 in the 24*'' 
year of her Age." On December 16, 1769, Solomon re- 
corded his intention of marriage with Susanna Wheeler. 

Solomon apparently took no part in the Revolution 
until 1782, when a petition was sent to the General Coun- 
cil, drawn up by Daniel Pearce and others, upon which 
his name appears. The petition was for the commission 
of Solomon Stanwood as commander of the brigantine 
called the " Success," sixteen guns and twenty men. The 
petition was approved by the Council, September 18, 1782, 
the same day that it was dated and handed in. 

The administration of the estate of Solomon Stanwood, 
mariner, late of Gloucester, deceased, intestate, was granted 
to his widow, Susanna, with Samuel Proctor and Nathaniel 
Dutch, Jr., October 4, 1784.

7:.. STKPHEX STANWOOD. (John, 19.) 

Stephen Stanwood was born in Gloucester, February 
25, 1720. On November 16, 1745, the Town Books record 
his intention of marriaj^e with Mary Stanwood, but just 
whose daughter Mary was, it is hard to determine. Very 
little is known of Stephen, except that during the Revo- 
lution he enlisted as seaman on board the sloop "Tyran- 
nicide," July I, 1776, under Captain John Fisk. He was 
reported killed on July 13th of the same year.

84. WILLIAM STANWOOD. (Jonathan. 20.) 

William Stanwood was born in Gloucester, the 12th of 
March, 171 5. He married Abigail Tucker, of Gloucester, 
on January i 2, 1738. 

In the " Documents and Records relating to the Province 
of New Hampshire " (Vol. V., p. 109), there is a deposition 
by a William Stanwood, of Gloucester, which may have 
been made by cither William (30) or William (84) ; as 
nothing but the date of birth is known of the former, it 
seems probable that he died young, and that the depo- 
sition came from William (84) : 

" William Staiiiuood of Glocester mariner & master of 
the Schooner Molly of Glocester, declareth & saith that 
upon Tuesday the 9'^ of Scpf at about 9 oclock at night, 
being upon the Western bank of the Isle of Sables at 
about 20 leagues distant from the Said Isle Westerly & 
lying to under his foresail he came athwart a large Ship 
w*"** he supposes to be a man of War of about 70 Guns, & 
before he discovered her he almost came athwart her 
Yards, where upon the Declarant Called to the men on 
Board the Said Ship to bear away & told them if they did 
not they would run him down, & then they bore away a 
little, some of the men on Board said ship Called to him 
in broken English, saying, Strike you Dog, at which time 


he heard the People on Board Speak to one Another in a 
Language which he did not understand & he was sure it 
was not EngHsh, he being near enough to Distinguish, 
where upon the Declarant imediately Sprung his Luff & 
then they fired upon him (as he supposed from a swivel 
gun) But making all his sail he got clear of said Ship, 
after which he saw a great number of Topsail vessels with 
Lights all standing to the north ward under easy sail, which 
Lights he endeavoured to Count & judges the number of 
them to be about Twenty five, one ship he saw with her 
light in her main-top — and further saith that about a 
Quarter of an Hour after he saw the first Ship he was in 
Company with a Schooner belonging to Glocester who lay 
upon the same Course with him & being about three 
quarters of a mile to Sea ward — the Declarant supposes 
she fell into the midst of the Fleet & was taken by them, 

he not having seen her Since.

On December 14, 1749, he was married to Abigail Wood- 
berry by Mr. Jaques. Soon after 1752, Abigail Woodberry 
Stanwood became a widow, and went to New Gloucester 
to live with her father, who had gone thither and taken 
a lot near the block-house. She married Deacon William 
Stevens, and died March 11, 1808, aged eighty-two years.

99. SAMUEL STANWOOD. (Ebenezer, 32.) 

In the Gloucester town records Samuel Stanwood's 
birth is given as November 6, 1719, " in Brunswick." His 
name first appears in the Brunswick records when he was 
about sixteen years old, in 1735, as a petitioner for the 
incorporation of the town. From this time on his name is 

met with frequently in the records of the doings of Bruns- 

In ly/i^y/?) he was in Captain David Dunning's com- 
pany, engaged in " hauling stores." Three years later, 
from August 14 to September 14, 175 1, he was a centi- 
nel in Captain John Getchell's company, occupied in scout 
and guard duty. In January and February, 1755, Samuel 
was an ensign in Captain Dunning's company, which 
" proceeded on three marches." His title of captain was 
probably not a military one, especially as he was a sea 
captain. On July 2, 1746, " Samuel Stanwood then bound 


to sea on a coasting voyage to Casco Bay," testified in Boston 
that he had been a soldier at Fort George, Brunswick, 
under Captain Benjamin I^rrabee, July 19, 1744. On 
that day a man had been captured by the soldiers, and 
Samuel testified as to his treatment. This looks as if he 
was captain of his vessel and not of a military company. 

In 1746, two lots in Topsham, numbers twenty-four and 
twenty-five, were granted to him, and two years later, in 
1748, he was an original proprietor of Harpswell. It is 
probable that he married his first wife, Jean (Lithgow) 
McFarland, soon after 1742, and made his residence on 
Mericoncag Neck. This afterward became part of the 
town of Harpswell. 

Samuel Stanwood had a varied career, and held many 
offices. In 1750,110 had a commission from Lord Loudon, 
as chaplain at the siege of Louisburg. He must have 
been a man of a religious turn of mind, for he was deacon 
of the First Church in Brunswick, on the Maquoit Road, 
for very many years. His occupation, aside from the 
work of his religious and civil offices, was that of a retailer. 
The Brunswick records give the fact that Samuel Stanwood 
and Samuel Moody were licensed retailers previous to 

1758. and in Portland, the records for Brunswick, for the 
years 1761, 1762. 1763, and 1778 give further evidence 
that he renewed his license. His business must have been 
a prosperous one, for in 1758 he is recorded as the richest 
man in the west end of town, being assessed at ;^I5I. 

Samuel Stanwood's public career was long and useful. 
Ik- was a selectman for many years, from 1752 to 

1759, from 1761 to 1767, and in 1772, 1773, I774. ^77^^ 
1777, and 1782. In 1755. he and Thomas Sfefolfield 
addressed a memorial to Governor Shirley to petition for 
money to repair the fort at Brunswick and to keep it in 


order. In that same year, March 9th, he was appointed to 
serve on the Committee of Safety, and April 27th, on the 
Committee of Correspondence and Supphes. In 1770, he 
served as representative to the provincial Legislature from 
Harpswell, when it is recorded, May 226, that " the majority 
of votes for Mr. Samuel Stanwood as representative were 
20." He is called an " Inhabitant of Mericoneag Neck." 

The next mention of Samuel is in 1775, when, July i8th, 
his name appears on a list enclosed in a letter to the 
governor of Connecticut, relative to the embargo on pro- 
visions by that colony. His certificate was to be the 
guarantee that provisions, purchased by the bearer would 
be delivered in Maine to the town committees. On this 
paper he is called Samuel Stanwood, of North Yarmouth. 

The next year, 1776, in March, found him reappointed 
upon the Committee of Correspondence, Inspection, and 
Safety; and May 27th, he was made a cornmissioner to 
the General Court from Brunswick. The next year he was 
appointed to serve on a committee to disburse i^20 for 
supplying the families of the soldiers from Brunswick in 
the Continental Army. In August, 1779, Samuel and 
William Stanwood were both on a committee " to Set 
prices on the articles in the Town, And carry the resolution 
into effect." The committee was to establish a State 
price-current, and adopt measures to prevent monopoly, 
extortion, and unfair dealing. In November, another 
committee was appointed *' to see the resolution put into 
effect," and Deacon Samuel Stanwood again served. His 
last public action recorded, except that of selectman in 
1782, was in 1 781, when he was on a committee to pre- 
pare a petition to the General Court " Concerning our pres- 
ent Circumstances and our inability of paying Specie." 

Deacon Samuel Stanwood had, as has been said, lots 24 


and 25 in Topsham granted to him in 1 746. He also had land 
on Mcrrymceting Bay, lots 31 and 32, These tu'o lots he 
sold in 1758, to Captain Adam Hunter, for fifty-six pounds 
thirteen shillings and four pence. In 1770, Samuel was 
described as an inhabitant of Mericoneag Neck, which is 
outside the township of Brunswick. In that same year 
" Deacon Samuel Stanwood's house which occupied the 
ground where Mrs. Joseph McKeen's house now stands was 
burnt." In the" History of Brunswick " it is said that " the 
residence of Mrs. Joseph McKeen on McKcen Street was 
built in 1776 or soon after by Samuel Stanwood, who occu- 
pied it until 1804, when he sold it to President McKeen." 
Deacon Stanwood died in 1790, so that it must have been 
his son Samuel who sold it to President McKeen. Either 
of them might have built it. This uncertainty as to where ^ 

Deacon Samuel Stanwood lived has caused some difficulty. I'J ' 
It is certain that, after his marriage with Jean Lithgow about To>n ( 

I 740, he lived at Mericoneag Neck. This neck did not be- 
long to Brunswick, but to the township of North Yarmouth, 
thirty miles away by land and twelve by sea. In conse- 
quence of this distance, the inhabitants in 1740 petitioned 
Governor Jonathan Belcher to annex this neck to the town of 
Brunswick. Samuel and his brother David both signed the 
petition, and their signatures may still be found in the Mas- 
sachusetts Archives. The annexation with Brunswick was 
allowed, and lasted for a year. In 1741, Mericoneag was 
again a part of North Yarmouth, but its people had the 
liberty to worship in Brunswick if they chose. This ar- 
rangement continued until the incorporation of Harpswell, 
in 1758, when Mericoneag became a part of that town. 

Samuel's first wife died on the twenty-second of Febru- 
ary, 1776, and August twentieth of the same year he 
married Mary Woodside. 


Deacon Samuel Stanwood and his two wives lie near 
together in the old burying-ground by the site of the first 
church. The stones are all legible:

Next to her lies Deacon Samuel Stanwood, whose tomb- 
stone reads :

The rest of tiic verse has sunk into the ground. On 
the other side of the deacon lies his second wife, whose 
stone is in better preservation. It reads:

UMK DAVID STANWOOD. ( Ebenezer, 32. ) 

David Stanwood, the second son of Ebenezer Stanwood, 
the Brunswick settler, was born in that town, August 23, 
172 1. In 1 75 I, from August 14th to September 14th, he 
was sergeant in Captain John Getchell's company, en- 
gaged in scout and guard duty. He was also in the expe- 
dition to Louisburg, as the following story, taken from the 
" History of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell," suffi- 


ciently proves : While the army was at Louisburg, " some 
twenty or thirty men were desirous of taking boats and cross- 
ing to the opposite shore, where they expected to plunder 
some French settlers. They landed without molestation, 
went to one house not far distant, entered it, and brought the 
plunder to their boats. Not sufficiently satisfied with what 
they had obtained, they returned, without their guns, and 
while stripping the house still further, they were surrounded 
and taken prisoners by the Indians, who had been on the 
watch for them. They were at once stripped and severely 
tortured with spears. Mr. Stanwood attempted to escape, 
but a well-directed spear hit him in the shoulder, and so 
disabled him that he surrendered and was again submitted 
to torture. He fled again, and was pursued, fired at, and 
a ball hit him in the arm and broke it. He succeeded, 
however, in his escape, hid himself until search was over, 
and when all was quiet went to the shore opposite to the 
army, and hoisted a handkerchief as a signal. It was seen, 
and, though fearful of a decoy, some of the men were at 
length allowed to go over for him, and he was rescued. 
Another account * states that after he had escaped the 
second time, he came to a river, and was shot while swim- 
ming across. His arm was afterwards amputated." On 
December 30, 1743/4, he married Mary Reed, of Tops- 
ham, who, according to the records, was born December 
28, 1723. David, like his brother Samuel, was an " inhab- 
itant of Mericoneag Neck," and an original proprietor of 
Harpswell. Mr. Stanwood died on the thirteenth of June, 

1752, in his thirty-first year. His tombstone stands in the 
old burial-ground on the Maquoit Road, a tombstone which

both of whom also died young. On April 29, 1758. his 
widow, Mary, married John Hunt, of North Yarmouth. 
She died December 22, 1798.

10:{. WILLIAM STANVVOOD. (Kbenezer, 32.) 

Captain William Stanwood was born in Brunswick on 
April 17, 1727. His name appears on a muster-roll of 
Captain John Getchcll's company, as centinel, from August 
14 to September 14, 1751. engaged in scout and guard 

He married when not quite twenty-two Klizabeth Reed. 
of Topsham. January 7, 1749, and seems to have settled 
in lirunswick proper, and not at Mericoneag Neck with 
Samuel, for in 1752 lot nineteen in Brunswick was granted 
to him. William Stanwood had a very prosperous career. 
In 1771. when he was but forty-four years old, the tax 
list gives his estate as worth ^605. About the year 1790 
he was one of only three men in Brunswick who owned a 
chaise. He was elected a selectman first in 1757, held 
the office until 1760, and was elected again in 1774, 1778, 
1779, 1780, and 1 78 1. William and his older brother Sam- 


uel worked much together. Four of the years that WilHam 
was a selectman, Samuel made a second of the three 
officers. Later, in August, 1779, they were appointed 
together on a committee to fix a State price-current and 
carry it into effect. Again in that same year, William 
served on a committee to supply the families of Revolu- 
tionary soldiers. 

William Stanwood served in the Revolution as cor- 
poral in Captain James Curtis's company. Colonel James 
Cargill's regiment, for three months, enlisting on May 17, 
1775, On August 26th, he reenlisted in the same company 
as sergeant, and served for four months and sixteen days. 
April 4th, he was elected, and June 5, 1776, was commis- 
sioned, as captain of the 2d Company of the 2d Cumber- 
land County Regiment, and stayed in Brunswick enlisting 
his men. In January, 1777, he was in Boston, on the 
march with his company toward Danbury, Connecticut. 
A third of his men had enlisted into the Continental Army 
for three years, and the rest, three months' men, were 
worried for fear they would not be accepted for service. 


Captain Stanwood sent a petition to the General Court to 
know whether he should go forward, and on January 17th, 
was ordered to proceed to Connecticut. (Mass, Ar- 
chives, Vol. 212, p. 122.) 

William's business was that of a retailer. In the records 
at Portland he is licensed " to sell tea, coffee and china- 
ware " in Brunswick for the years 1762 to 1764, 1791 to 
'793- The licenses for the other years were doubtless not 
entered in the records. 


The last thing that is known of him before his death is 
that when the Baptist society was incorporated, June 20, 
1794, as "The Baptist Religious Society in Brunswick, 
Harpswell and Bath," William was one of the incorporators. 

In the burying-ground where his father lies, the grave- 
stones of William and his wife, Elizabeth, are still standing 
side by side :

His wife outlived him for over twenty-two years, and 
her stone is a comparatively modern one :

lOfi. JOSEPH STANWOOD. (Philip, 38.) 

Joseph Stanwood was born in Newbury, Massachusetts, 
on February 14, 1742/3. When sixteen years old he en- 
Hstcd in the army of His Majesty King George, in Colonel 
Joseph Gerrish, Jr.'s, regiment, March 30, 1759, and " had 
Public Arms." He is reported to be a " Servant of William 
Moody." The next year he was returned as corporal in 
Captain Thomas Sweat's company, serving from June 12th 
to December 8th, with one hundred and twenty miles' travel 
home allowed. The company was stationed at St. Johns. 
Upon his return, and before 1767, he married Abigail, the 
daughter of William and Judith Moody. A deed at Salem 
corroborates the date, for in 1767 Joseph and Abigail 
Stanwood, of Ncwburyport, sold land to Michael and Tris- 
tram Dalton.

no. JOHN STANWOOD. (Joseph. 40.) 

John Stanwood was, as he himself states, born in Salis- 
bury, in 1722. He was probably the son of Joseph Stan- 
wood, who is the only one of the family known to be 
living in Salisbury at that time. There seems to be no 
question about the date, for in 1759, when he enlisted in 
Newbury in Colonel Joseph Gerrish, Jr.'s, regiment for the 
invasion of Canada, he gave his age as thirt>'-seven and 
his residence Salisbury. The next year, 1760. when he 
was enlisted by Captain Edward Brown on April i ith, he 
gave his age as thirty-eight and both his birthplace and 
residence as Salisbury. His age, therefore, was not a gen- 
eralization. This supposition is corroborated by a state- 


ment in the autobiography of his grandson, the Rev. 
Henry Stanwood : " I do not know from what foreign 
countries my ancestors came; my father's family I have 
been told lived many years ago in Brunswick, Maine, and 
afterwards in Salisbury on the other side of the Merrimac 
River, opposite to Newburyport, but ultimately the family 
all settled in the latter place. My grandfather is said to 
have been a seafaring man, and was lost at sea about the 
time of the Revolutionary War. My grandmother's name 
was Mary Atkinson, and belonged to a family of that name 
in the vicinity of Newburyport. , . . The family con- 
sisted of three sons, John, Joseph, and Thomas (died Feb. 
5, 1856, aged 92), and four daughters, two of whom mar- 
ried brothers named Noyes ; one a Mr. Gibson, who was 
blind for many years ; the other, a Mr. Bowen. All ex- 
cept one settled in Newburyport and lived to advanced 

The only Stanwood, so far as can be found, who married 
an Atkinson was a certain John, whose marriage to Ann 
Atkinson was recorded in Newbury, September 11, 1746. 
John and Ann had three daughters born to them in New- 
bury : Ann, Elizabeth, and Esther. The name Esther gives 
a little additional evidence, perhaps, of John's parentage, 
being the name of Joseph's wife. After the birth of these 
three children, John went back to his home in Salisbury, 
and served in the army in 1757 at Lake George, and also 
in 1759 and 1760 in the Canada campaign. 

One of his sons, John, and possibly the fourth daughter, 
whose name has not been found, were born in Salisbury. 
In 1 76 1, John Stanwood, block-maker of Salisbury, and 
Ann his wife, sold land in Salisbury to Abraham Eaton. 

John and his family then moved across the river to 
Newburyport. The records of that town contain the births 


of the two Other sons " of John and Ann Stanwood." 
Thomas and Joseph. Joseph's name strengthens the sup- 
position that Joseph was the name of John's father. 

Rev. Henry Stanwood says that his grandmother's name 
was Mary and not Ann Atkinson. He must certainly 
have been mistaken in this, for three of the daughters of 
John and Ann married as Mr. Stanwood has said. In 
the records of Newburyport are the marriages of an Anne 
Stanwood to Joseph Noyes, of an Esther Stanwood to a 
Simeon Noyes, and of an Elizabeth to Jacob Bowen. which 
seems to confirm the statement made here that his grand- 
mother was Ann and not Mary Atkinson. 

Mr. Stanwood failed to tell what his grandfather's Chris- 
tian name was. Hut there seems to be little doubt that it 
was John, for no other Stanwood married an Atkinson, and 
in addition, in accordance with the custom of the times 
that the oldest son be named for the father, the oldest here 
was John. His third son, Joseph, named a son John, and 
when he died in infancy named his next son John. The 
name has been kept in the younger generations. 

From John and Ann Stanwood comes one of the larg- 
est Newburyport branches.

112. EBENEZER STANVVOOD. (Ebenezer, 45.) 

Ebenezer Stanwood was born October 11, 1724, in 
Ipswich. His intention of marriage with Sarah Wilcomb, 
of Ipswich, was recorded on January ii, 1744. Sarah 
Wilcomb was born in Ipswich in 171 5, and was the 
daughter of WiUiam and Charity (Dod) Wilcomb. Her 
father was a fisherman, born at the Isles of Shoals, but 
brought to Ipswich when very young, and placed under 
the guardianship of Henry Spiller. He lived on " the lane 
leading to Smith's ship yard," and had his flakes on Jef- 
frey's Neck. He was a member of the First Church, 
Sarah Wilcomb Stanwood died about 1760, for on April 
15th of that year an Ebenezer, probably the same, married 
Mrs. Thankful Smith. 

Ebenezer was a peruke-maker, as is shown by a deed 
at Salem, when in 1766 " Ebenezer Stanwood of Ipswich 
Peruke-maker and Thankful his wife " quitclaimed land to 
John Smith, 4th. This trade he taught his eldest son, 
William, who afterwards engaged in the business, in Ports- 
mouth, New Hampshire. 

In 1765, Ebenezer's land in Ipswich, on which his house 
stood, is described as 52^ feet on the country road, 53 feet 
northwest on land of John Pindar, 15 rods and 6 feet east 
on Mr. Dummer Jewet, one straight line i 5 rods and 6 feet 
southwest on the land belonging to the heirs of Daniel 
Appleton, Esq. 

On July 9, 1787, the " wife of Ebenezer Stanwood died." 
He himself died December 29, 1798, aged seventy-four 

Children of Ebenezer and Sarah :

He enlisted in the Revolution in Captain Nathaniel 


Wade's company, and remained in this company from 
May 15. 1775, until the last of 1777. In the early part 
of 1776 he was at Prospect Hill ; later, in May, he was 
at Long Island. In 1777, he seems to have been in 
Ipswich, and his name app>ears once more in a list of 
prisoners sent from Newport, K.I., in the " Lord Sand- 
wich,'" prison ship, and landed at Bristol, March 7, 1778. 

In 1786, Kbcnezer, who was a cabinet-maker by trade, 
had a guardian appointed to look after his prof)erty. 
On September 12. 1782, he married Anna Badger, and it 
was probably he who later, Septeml>er 16, 1797, pub- 
lished his intention of marriage with Joanna Constable. 
He died in Ipswich, September, 1823.

Lemuel Stanwood was born in Gloucester, July 3, 
1746. On .\ugust 2-j, 1766, he married Lydia Stacey, 
the daughter of Deacon Stacey, of Gloucester. I^muel 
was a yeoman and a mariner. He died in Newburyport. 
May 18, 1 8 10, and his widow continued to live in that 
town with her daughter Lydia, the wife of Onan Berry, 
imtil her death, September id, 1821. She was eighty 
years old. Mr. Francis C. Stanwood, of Boston, has many 
of the bills paid by her son, David Stanwood, to his sister, 
Mrs. Berry, for their mother's support during the years of 
her widowhood.

Joshua Stanwood was born in Gloucester, October 24, 

1 73 1. On January 2, 1753, he married Mary Riggs, of 
Gloucester. The intention of marriage, published June 22, 
1799, with Mrs. Elizabeth Loyd, probably applies to this 
Joshua Stanwood. He had a long career as a private 
during the Revolution, in Captain Daniel Warner's com- 
pany, stationed at Gloucester as coast guard. He enlisted 
first on July 19, 1775, for three months and twenty-one 
days, on November ist of the same year, on January 16, 
1776, and on March ist. May 31st, and September ist, of

Nehemiah Stanwood was born in Gloucester, June 26, 
1 733- Very little is known of him beyond the fact that he 
was a fisherman. His intention of marriage with Ruth 
Morgan was recorded January 31, 1756. He died in 
181 5 ; and his son, Nehemiah, Jr., was appointed adminis- 
trator to the estate on December 17th.

i:n. ZKHULON STAN\VO(JD. (Jon. 55.) 

Zcbulon Stanwood, merchant and farmer, was born in 
Gloucester the 19th of April, 175 i. In 1772, on the 27th 
of June, he married Mary, the eifjhth child of Samuel and 
Anna (Proctor) Rust. The Rev. Mr. Daniel P'uller per- 
formed the ceremony. Sometime between 1794 and 1829, 
Mary Rust Stanwood died, for Zebulon's intent of mar- 
riage with Nancy Bray was published on October 25th of 
the latter year. His wife Nancy is mentioned in his will. 
According to Habson's " Gloucester," Zebulon bought the 
Woodward farm at Little River, and died there, at the age 
of eighty-seven, in 183S. His will was as follows: 

In the N.inie of G.O.D. amen, I Zebulun Stanwood, of (Gloucester

On April 23, 1814, Job published his intention of mar-

not marry, as an entry in the records immediately after 
shows : 

"Gloucester, Aug. 15. 18 14. 1, the subscriber, hereby 
forbid the banns of matrimony between my son Job Stan- 
wood and Ruthy Rust, entered 23 .April. 18 14. 

" Zebulon Stanwood." 

The reason for this forbidding of the banns is probably 
found in a decision of the court later, in 1827, that Job 
Stanwood, laborer, of Gloucester, is non compos mentis. 

In 1838, Job again published his intention of marriage, 
this time with Sally Rollar. The banns were forbidden 
by Jonathan Storey, 3d, his guardian, but his prohibition 
was afterward revoked, and they were married. They had 
no children. It is said that in 1876, Job Stanwood was 
still living in his father's house.

Benjamin Bradstrect Stanwood was born January 19,

married, first to Margaretta, the daughter of Thomas Was- 
gatt, and secondly to Mrs. Zilpah L. (Phelps) Hotchkiss, 
of New York. He was a petitioner to the General Court. 
He also seems to have been a large land-owner in Mt. 
Desert, and it is somewhat romantic to know that part of 
his land came back into the hands of a Stanwood later, 
though into those of a Stanwood of a widely different 
branch. The following extract is taken from the " New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register " for Octo- 
ber, 1896: 

Copy of a Survey made at Bar Harbor, Mt. Desert, 1 789-1 791, by 

yohn Peters: 

Benjamin Stanwood Lot. 
'* Begin at stakes and stones, the bounds between him and Robert 
Young ; run first south 45 degrees, west 340 rods to a tree ; then south 
45 degrees, east 58 rods to a spruce tree ; thence north 45 degrees 
east to the shore; then follow the shore to first bounds; this finishes 
said Stanwood's lot of 100 acres, exclusive of roads." 

Mrs. James G. Blaine, Sr., a Descendant of Philip Stanwood'' s son 

Jonathan, writes : 
" My Aither thought that all those in this country by the name of 
Stanwood must be of close kin, and yet when the title deeds of our 
property at Bar Harbor came over from the law office of Hale & Emory, 
at Ellsworth, it was a complete surprise to Mr. Blaine to find that the 
land he had purchased belonged originally to the lot of a Benjamin 
Stanwood. This lot, and a very large one it was, was held by him in 


1787, when Madame Therese de Gregoire came to Mt. Desert to take 
possession of one-half of the island, deeded by the United States 
government to her (for services of her father during the Revolution), 
subject to any lien there might be on it. We called our place Stan- 
wood, in memory of this unknown Benjamin, and many, many of the 
beautiful places at Bar Harbor belonged to Benjamin Stanwood."

Hiimjihrcy Bradstrect Stanwood was born in Eden, Mt. 
Desert, Maine, January 20, 1768. He was twice married, 
first to Reliance Higgins.oras some say to Mary Higgins, 
and second to Mrs. Hannah (Higgins) Leland. By the 
former he had three sons and six daughters. 

Humphrey, like his brother Benjamin, was a land-owner 
in Mt. Desert, and the *' Bangor Magazine " gives the sur- 
vey of his lot : 

" Begin at a birch tree that stantls at South cast corner 
of Solomon Higgins Lot, the bounds between him and 
Solomon Higgins are run first due south 240 rods : then 
due west 80 rods to a hemlock tree, then due north 160 
rods to a fir tree, then north 45 east to first mentioned 

Humphrey Bradstrect Stanwood died on October 22, 
1847, in Eden, and his wife, Hannah, who survived him, 
died April 27, 185 1, at the age of seventy-three.

Enoch Tichburn Stanwood was born in Eden, Maine, 
April 21, 1770. Being a loyalist, he went to Nova Scotia 
in 1792, and settled at Yarmouth, at a place which has 
ever since been called Stanwood's Beach. Here, in 1794, 
he married Eunice, the daughter of Captain Zachariah and 
Eunice Foote. Zachariah Foote must have come from 
Salem, Massachusetts, for in 1796 there was a deed re- 
corded at Salem, in which Enoch and Eunice Stanwood 
sold land in that city, and Eunice Foote, widow, releases 
her right of dower. 

In the war of 1812, Enoch Stanwood commanded a Brit- 
ish privateer, and took Captain Thomas Bunker's vessel as 
a prize, and made Captain Bunker himself a prisoner. The 
vessel lay a wreck on Stanwood's Beach for many years. 
P^noch was finally killed in. a scrimmage off Deer Island.

Captain Solomon Stanwood was born in Gloucester, 
August 2, 1772. On August 20, 1807, he married Anna 
Prentiss, and three years later their only child, Lydia 
Ann, was born. Solomon Stanwood died November 6, 
181 1, and his widow, Anna, soon followed him. She died 
on the 1 2th of December, 1817, of consumption. The 
child, Lydia Ann, was given into the guardianship of 
Richard G. Stanwood, after the death of her father.

i:>:i. RICHARD GOSS STANWOOD. (Solomon, 68.) 
Richard Goss Stanwood, ship-master, was born in 
Gloucester, Massachusetts, April 14, 1774. On September 
2, 1797, he recorded his intention of marriage with Sukey 
Wharff; she lived only four years after her marriage, and 
died in 1801. He then married Hannah Harraden. 

In 1814, Mr. Stanwood was appointed to Engine No. i, 
of the Gloucester Fire Department, the " Volent." That 
same year the engine-house was razed to the ground by 
the soldiers who were returning from the Cape. This was 
caused by the fact that some firemen, exempt from mili- 


tary duty, had jeered at the soldiers. In 1832 and 1833. 
he was a member of the Board of F'ire Commissioners, and 
in 1849 was made chief. 

" The venerable ship-master and respected citizen died 
April 28, 1 860, aged eighty-six."* His second wife, Hannah, 
had died long before — April 8, 1813. Babson, in his 
" History of Gloucester," says that " a son of Captain 
Richard G. Stanwood, in Boston, and a grandson in Marys- 
ville, California, arc, so far as I can learn, all the males 
bearing the name in this line of descent from the second 
Philip." It is also interesting that in 1864, in the great 
Gloucester fire, the house owned by Captain Richard G. 
Stanwood, a two-story dwelling in the rear of Nos. 167 and 
169 Front street was burned. This was supposed to have 
been the house of the emigrant Philip Stanwood. but ab- 
solute proof seems lacking.

David Stanwood was born in Gloucester, March 20. 
1776, and married, in 1799, Lucy Bennett. They had one 
child and possibl}- others. Mr. Stanwood was lost at sea 
on the ship " Winthrop and Mary." which went down

159. STEPHEN STANVVOOD. (Stephen, 75.) 

Stephen Stanwood, who is principally remarkable for 
his very long Revolutionary war record, was born in 
Gloucester, August 25, 1748. So far as can be ascertained 
he never married. His name first appears on the war 
records as having enlisted June 5, 1775, as a private in 
Captain Kimball's company. Colonel Mansfield's regi- 
ment. He was in the same company in Cambridge on 
July 1st, and at Winter Hill, October 6th and December 
27th. During this period, there is an entry in Crafts's 
Journal of the Siege of Boston, that " Stephen Stanwood, 
for saucy talk to General Lee, had his head broke. The 
General gave him a dollar and sent for the doctor." 

Stephen enlisted as private in Captain Bradbury 
Saunders's company, January 19, 1776, and reenlisted 
March ist and June ist. His service was at Gloucester. 
On July 15th he enlisted as matross in Captain Ellery's 
company, reenlisted September 30th, and remained in the 
company, which was stationed in Gloucester, until the last 
day of the year. In 1777, he is on a muster and pay-roll 

as a private in Captain Mark Poole's company. Colonel 
Jonathan Titcomb's regiment, dated Bristol, Rhode Island, 
June 28th. From November 12, 1777, to February 3, 


1778, he was on guard at Charlestown in the same com- 
pany, and in March and April at Winter Hill again. 

On July 3, 1778, he arrived at Fishkill, New York, hav- 
ing enlisted for nine months as a private. From February 
14, 1779, to December 31, 1780, he served in Boston and 
elsewhere in Captain Child's company, Colonel Wesson's 
regiment, and from 1781 through the rest of the war he 
served in Captain Di.x's regiment. In 1779, when he was 
thirty-two years old, according to the records, he was five 
feet seven in height, with a brown complexion and dark 
hair; his occupation was that of a seaman. He died Octo- 
ber 29, 1809. 

ir,0. CHARLES STANWOOD. (Stephen. 75.) 

Charles Stanwood was born in Gloucester, August 25, 
1748. Like his brother Stephen, he seems to have never 
married. He enlisted in Captain Kimball's company, 
Colonel Mansfield's regiment, as private, on June 5, 1775. 

and remained in this compan\', serving in Cambridge and 
at Winter Hill, until the end of the year. His sijinature is 
taken from a list of receipts for a bounty coat or its equiv- 
alent, dated at Winter Hill, December 27. 1775. 

168. HUMrHREY STANWOOD. (Charles, 79.) 

Humphre)' Stanwood, mariner, was born in Gloucester, 
July 21, 1753. He moved to Newburyport, where he died 
intestate in 1801. In October of that year, letters of

have been his daughter or his widow. Humphrey prob- 
ably had at least two sons, Humphrey and Charles. 
Children of Humphrey :

dianship of his two surviving minor children, Mary and 
Maria, was given to Jeremy Todd, September 6. 181 i. 
There is but one touch of his personality left us, a letter, 
which may be found in the history of Newburyport: 

"Newburyport, 8th March. 1809. 

" To the Clerk of the hirst Religious Society in Neivbury- 

" Presuming that I may be better and more particularly 
accjuainted and instructed in the principles of the Gospel

proper to attend tlevotional worship in his Society in pref-

177. JOSEPH STANWOOD. (Joseph, 82.) 

Captain Joseph Stanwood was born in Gloucester, Sep- 
tember 13, 1740. Sometime before 1767, he married 
Lydia Lunt for his first wife ; she died January 26, 1808, 
and on the i6th of June of the same year he published his 
intention of marriage with Mrs. Sarah Ela, of Newburyport. 
His second wife is mentioned in his will, and outlived him 
many years, dying in Newburyport, October 25, 1827. 
Before his first marriage, or very soon after. Captain Joseph 
Stanwood had moved to Newburyport, and it was from this 
town that he enlisted during the Revolution. The first 
mention of him in the war records is on March 18, 1777, 
on a pay-roll dated at Newburyport; he was then in Cap- 
tain Jonathan Row's company. The next year, in Janu- 
ary, he had enlisted as a private in Captain Moses Green- 
leafs company, Colonel Benjamin Tupper's regiment, and 
in November, 1778, his name appears on a muster-roll of 
Captain Jonathan Evans's company. Colonel Nathaniel 
Wade's regiment, as private, at North Kingston, Rhode 
Island. The same company had already been stationed 
most of the year in East Greenwich. At some period of 
his long stay in Greenwich and Kingston he was a cor- 

Captain Joseph Stanwood was a ship-builder and ship- 
owner in Newburyport for many years, and grew rich in 


his business. The history of Newburyport gives a list 
of some of the vessels which he built and owned :

Tristram Dalton, moved to the house which was on 
the farm, and lived there the rest of his life. In 1787, 
Samuel Brcck visited Tristram Dalton in the house which 
Joseph Stanwood bought. He writes that " that gentle- 
man (Dalton) lived in Elegance and Comfort at a very 
beautiful country house four miles from Newburyport dur- 
ing the summer. . . From the piazza or front part 
of his country house the farms were so numerous and the 
villages so thickly planted that eighteen steeples were in 
view. The villa was well built, and surrounded by an 
excellent dairy and other out-houses." * He died on the 
first of February, 1813, at the age of seventy-two. The 
inventory of his estate showed that he died worth $33,420.

179. WILLIAM STANWOOD. (Joseph, 82.) 

William Stanwood was born in Gloucester, February 
21, 1744. He married, September 6, 1773, Martha Tom- 
lins or Tomlinson. It may have been either this William 
or William (192) who served in the Revolution. Which- 
ever William it was, the record is not a long one. He enlisted 
July 19, 1775, in Captain Daniel Warner's company and 
served until the last day of the year, as a private. The 
company was one for coast defence, stationed at Gloucester. 

William Stanwood died before October 5, 1778, intestate, 
and the administration of his estate was granted to his 
widow, Martha, with Joshua Plummer and Robert Tom- 
linson as bondsmen. 

Children of William and Martha: 

350. William, b. March 23, 1774. On July 29, 1797, appears

November 26, 1791, with John Clark. 

183. PETER STANWOOD. (Joseph. 82.) 

Peter Stanwood was born in Gloucester, May 17, 1754. 
He moved to Newbury, and went from that town to the war, 
in which his record is very short, being of six days' dura- 
tion. Peter's name is in the Lexington Alarm Rolls, 
credited to Captain Gideon Woodwcll's company, which 
marched from Newbury to Cambridge, on the 19th of 
April, 1775. 

On February 22, 1777, he published his intention of 
marriage with Mary or Polly King, of Boston. They are 
mentioned in Captain Joseph Stanvvood's will.

196. ANDREW STANWOOD. (Andrew, 85.) 

Andrew Stanwood, Jr.'s, birth is not on the Gloucester 
records, but it was probably about 1742 or '43. Andrew 
Stanwood, Jr., was married in Gloucester, June 28, 1764, to 
Lydia Row, by Mr. Samuel Chandler. His occupation 
was that of a fisherman. In 1776, he served as private in 
Captain William Pearson's company, stationed in Glouces- 
ter as coast defence from January loth to August 31st. 
On August 6, 1804, the administration of his estate was 
granted to Mary Stanwood, with Isaac Elwell and Jonathan 


Children of Andrew and Lydia : 

358. Andrew, bapt. June 14, 1767. On December 10, 1796, he 

recorded his intention of marriage with Alice Parsons, of 
Gloucester, but for some reason the banns were forbidden.

205. JOHN STANWOOD. (John, 88.) 

John Stanwood was born in Gloucester, July 23, 1748. 
Either before the war broke out or in consequence of it 
he went to Newburyport, where he was stationed for six 
months, from July 11, 1775, to January i, 1776, as a 
private in Captain Moses Nowell's company. A year 
after his term of service was over, on December 12, 1776, 
he married Sarah Burgin, of Ipswich, and finally settled in 
Newburyport. The brigantine " Betsey," built at Salisbury 
in 1785, but registered from Newburyport, was owned by 
Enoch Pierce, John Balch, John Pilsbury, and John Stan-

210. WILLIAM STANWOOD. (Samuel, 99.) 

in the old family Bible still owned by Mr. William 
Stanwood at Mere Point, Brunswick, the following entries 
may be found, in the handwriting of " William Stanwood 
Jr." himself. It is from this that his signature is taken : 

"Will"' Stanwood Jr was Born Scptem'"' 12 Day 1744

" Robert Stanwood Born June 12, 1795 
" Lavinia Stanwood Born Sept 6, 1797 
" Catherine Stanwood Born [May] 17, 1800." 



William Stanwood's name appears on the Revolu- 
tionary Rolls, with the rank of private. From February 
19 to November 23, 1776, with two reiinlistments, he was 
stationed in Falmouth, now Portland, Maine, in Captain 
William Lithgow's company, and in 1777, as a private in 
Captain George White's compan)'. He also probably 
served as a privateersman on the " Seaflower." 

In 1779, Captain Stanwood was on a committee to see 
that the town's resolutions in regard to a State Price- 
current should be put into effect. This seems to have 
been the beginning of his public career, which was a very 
honorable one. Two years later, December 25, 1 781, he 
was on a committee with his father, Deacon Samuel Stan- 



wood, to prepare a petition to the General Court " concern- 
ing our present circumstances and our inability of paying 
our taxes in specie." 

He was a selectman of Brunswick in 1784, and again in 
1789, 1790, 1793, and 1798, and a representative in 1793 
and 1798. 

William Stanwood, Jr., was a prosperous man. He was 
a ship-builder at Mere Point, and close to his ship-yard 
he built his house. This descended through his son 
William to his grandson William, who, with his brother 
Thomas, still resides there. It is a large and well-built 
house, full of most interesting old furniture, china, and 
other heirlooms. Beautiful trees surround it, and it com- 
mands a view of Casco Bay. 

William Stanwood's first wife, Hannah Moody, is buried 
in the old cemetery, at the site of Brunswick's first Meet- 
ing-house. The stone is still legible: 








2lST 1785 

AGED 2! 



24 DAYS. 

Captain William himself is buried in the Maquoit bury- 
ing-ground, where his stone is still standing. He died 
February 11, 1800, aged fifty-six. His widow married 
Jeremiah Hodgdon, March 3, 1805.

217. SAMUEL STANWOOD. (Samuel, 99.) 

Samuel Stanwood, Jr., was born on Mericoneag Neck, 
North Yarmouth, Maine, December 26, 1746. He married 
Ann (b. 1755), the sister of Anthony Chase, and had five 
children. He seems not to have taken as much interest in 
either the religious or public life of Brunswick as his father, 
though his name appears among the list of members of 
the same church, and twice in the records of the doings 
of the town, when in 1779 and again in 1782 he was on 
the Committee of Correspondence, Inspection, and Safety. 
Samuel Stanwood, Jr., lived in what is now the McKeen 
house on McKeen Street. Brunswick, probably from about 
the time of his marriage until 1804, when he sold it to 
President McKeen of Bowdoin College. 

In 1792, while he was living in the house, Samuel Stan- 
wood had a saw-mill at Maquoit at which he worked dur- 
ing the day, carrying his dinner with him. One day, 


desiring to accomplish all he could and not feeling very 
hungr}', he did not stop to eat the dinner which he had 
brousfht with him, but took it back with him when he 
started for home at night. When he reached Mere Brook, 
a wolf came out of the thicket, looked at him a moment, 
then went back and uttered his hideous yells, which soon 
brought four or five others of his species to the scene. 
Stanwood, finding he was pursued, threw out a handful of 
meat, and while the wolves were fighting over it he hastened 
forward, soon, however, to be overtaken by the animals, to 
whom he again threw fragments of food. This operation 
was repeated until, when nearly to his home, the last 
fragment of food was gone and the wolves were in hot 
pursuit of him. He screamed to his wife to open the 
door. Fortunately she heard him and flung open the 
door, just in time to secure his escape from the wild beasts 
at his heels.* 

In the old burying-ground far down the road to Maquoit, 
.stand the gravestones of Samuel Stanwood and his wife, 
Ann. Samuel's gravestone says that he was the son 
of Deacon Samuel and Jane Stanwood — this in spite 
of the fact that he died December 16, 1828, at the age of 
eighty-five, according to his tombstone. He was in 
reality but eighty-two. His wife, Ann, died September 20, 
1822, aged sixty-seven.

1783, 1792, and 1805. He died February 15, 1818.

228. WILLIAM STANWOOD. (David, ioo.) 

Colonel William Stanwood was born in Brunswick, 
Maine, April 5, 1752. He Wcis, perhaps, the most promi- 
nent Stanwood who has ever lived in Brunswick. He was 
married three times : first, to Mary Orr, a granddaughter of 
Daniel Orr, of Orr's Island. Her only child was born June 
13, 17H1, and the mother died on the 26th. The second 
wife was Hannah Thompson, by whom William had ten 
children, and the third, Ruth Thompson. 

William Stanwood had a long and honorable record in 
the Revolution. In 1776, from March nth to November 
23rd, he was with Captain William Lithgow's company, as 
sergeant, stationed at Falmouth. From January i, 1777, 
to October II, 1780, he was first lieutenant in Captain 

George White's company, Colonel P^benezer P'rancis's 
regiment, until the latter's death, and then under Colonel 
Tupper. An interesting document in regard to William 
Stanwood's war record has come down as testimony from 
Philip Owen, of Brunswick. Mr. Owen married Joanna, 
who was the sister of William's second wife, Hannah 
Thompson, and also his brother David Stanwood's widow : 

" I Philip Owen of Brunswick in the County of Cumber- 
land & State of Maine, aged over 88 years do testify and 
say, that William Stanwood late of said Brunswick 
deceased, enlisted and took a warrant of a Sargeant in the 
Revolutionary Struggle in the year A.D. 1776 under 
Capt. W"\ Lithgow in Col. Mitchell's Regiment and went 
to Portland in which company he Served about 8 months. 
In the last of the year i ']'j6 or first of the year i TJJ, he en- 


listed into the company of Capt. George White in the Regi- 
ment of Col. Francis and had a lieutenant's commission." 
"Said Stanwood tarried in said Brunswick enlisting men 
for said service until the spring of A.D. 1777. He then 
marched with said company to Ticonderoga and tarried 
there under said Col. Francis until his death and then under 
Col. Tupper till after the Surrender of Burgoyne ; then he 
marched to Pennsylvania and joined Gen. Washington's 
army — and that all said Stanwood's service in said Revo- 
lution as a soldier amounted to more than three years. 
As respects the time of his services I speak from personal 
knowledge as I belonged to the same regiment with him 
and was frequently conversant with him during the three 
years above mentioned." * 

The records of the Sons of the American Revolution 
corroborate this testimony. After the war he was made a 
colonel of the Maine Volunteer Militia. 

Colonel Stanwood began life as a blacksmith, and, after 
the war, returned to his trade, in a shop which stood on 
what is now the northwest corner of Centre Street. About 
1790, James McFarland took the shop. In addition to 
his trade Mr. Stanwood was also engaged in the lumber f 
business, and in ship-building in connection with Captain 
John Dunlap. He accumulated wealth, owned three large 
farms, with other real estate, and in 1800 the Nye lumber 

In 1796, he sold to the Trustees of Bowdoin College, 
for one cent, land between " the four rod road and the 
twelve rod road," and again on May 18, 1798, for $16.67, 
he transferred to the President and Trustees of the College 
tifty acres "on the east side of the twelve rod Road lead- 
ing to Maquoit, beginning at lot No. i and northerly to

lot No. 3." The land thus transferred comprises what is 
now the campus. The same year he was made an over- 
seer of the college, and held the position until May 16, 
1815, when he resigned it by letter. On December 28, 
1808, there was a third sale of an irregularly shaped lot of 
small area in the present northwest corner of the campus. 
The consideration expressed in that deed was $500. The 
election of Mr. Stanwood as an overseer might well be 
considered a recognition of his generosity. 

Colonel William Stanwood was a selectman in 1798, and 
a representative in 1794-5. 

In 1802, Colonel Stanwood, Richard Tappan, John 
Parry, Charles Ryan, and a few others, owned stores in 
Brunswick. At a quarter past nine, one January evening in 
1 8 10, the house, store, and barn owned by Richard Tappan 
were burned, and with them William Stanwood's house. 
It must have been after this fire that he built and lived in 
the house which is still standing on Maine Street, owned 
at present (1898) by the heirs of the late A. C. Robbins, 
Esq. In later life Colonel William Stanwood met with 
very severe losses in his shipping business. He died June 
24, 1829, in Brunswick.

brother WiHiam was settled. On " October 16, 1778, [the 
provincial authorities] gave order to the Maritime Office 
to Clear out Isaac Stanwood for Ipswich, with 100 bush''

both eyes, and his granddaughter Joanna remembers leading 
him about, probably with some grown person's assistance. 
He lived in a house which is still standing ( 1898) on what 
is now Green Street, Ipswich, but was then Green Lane. 

Captain Stanwood was buried, with his wife, in the Ips- 
wich burying-ground. Their gravestone is still standing, 
and only slightly moss-grown :

" Jany 2nd 1794 

'* by John .McKnight 
" One of the ministers of I'nited Presbyterian Congresjations in 
the City of New York." 

Mr. Stanwood must have iiad some interesting experi- 
ences, if a resolve taken by the United Insurance Company 
of New York, December zS, 1790, is any criterion. It was 

" Resolvfti, 'I"hat the .Sum of Eight hundred Dollars l>c presented to 

Lemuel Stanwood for the of himself and the Persons who assisted 

him in ret.ikinij the Bri<j Chatham after having been captured by a 

French Privateer, with the acknowledgement of the Company for their 

very brave and gallant conduct upon that occasion.

on Parsons's Wharf. The census of Boston in 1798 gives 
the exact location of David's house: it was a "wooden 

dwelling situated easterly on a passage to Lynn Street,

land in Gloucester, Stoneham. and New Milford, Maine, 
and finally a house on Fleet Street, which he sold March 
8, 1 82 1, for $3,500 in cash. 

During the years 1818 and 18 19, he was a member of 
the Massachusetts Society for the Suppression of Intemper- 

Mr. Stanwood died in Boston on the twentieth of May. 
1835, and his sons William and Lemuel were made admin- 
istrators of his estate, of which the personal part amounted 
to $2,493.20. His wife died January 31, 1844, at the age 
of sixty-nine years and lies in the Granary Burying-ground.

276. JOHN MORGAN STANWOOD. (Nehemiah, 


John Morgan Stanwood was baptized on August 7, 1774, 
in Gloucester. He recorded his intent of marriage with 
Mary Lurvey, April 13, 1798. " Johnny Morgan " and his 
wife lived in what is known as Dogtown, a part of 
Gloucester. He seems to have been a very eccentric char- 
acter. A poem in the " Atlantic Monthly," called " Morgan 
Stanwood," has immortalized him as a Revolutionary hero, 
but the real honor was due to his father-in-law, Peter 
Lurvey, as John Morgan Stanwood, who was not born 
until 1774, could not have fought in the Revolution. 

Mr. Charles E. Mann, in his " Story of Dogtown," has 
given a very interesting account of John Morgan Stan- 
wood : 

" After crossing the brook, on the same side as Judy 
Rhincs's cellar, one sees a big bowlder, beside the road. 
Right against it, on one side, are the foundations of a 
small building, while in the yard with this, enclosed by a 
wall, arc the remains of a larger structure. The building 
by the rock was the hut in which John Morgan Stanwood 
spent his last days. Mr. Rich, in his poem, dropped the 


John, while the custom of his contemporaries was to drop 
the Stanwood. It is a painful, but well authenticated fact, 
that he was known to some as long as he lived, as ' Johnny 
Morgan.' I misspent many precious hours trying, first to 
find if John Morgan Stanwood was the man I was hunting 
after, and second, seeking to find out who the Morgan was 
who lived by the brook. That this was not strange may 
be understood when I say that a lady still living told me 
that for years she went to school and was intimate with 
' Nabby Morgan,' his daughter, before the person told her 
that her name was really Abigail Morgan Stanwood. 

" Morgan Stanwood never went to the wars, so those who 
knew him as Captain Morgan Stanwood made a mistake if 
they thought his title a military one. He married Mary 
Lurvey, and had many children. ' Granther Stanwood,* 
or 'Johnny Morgan,' as you will, seems thoroughly to 
have enjoyed life in Dogtown Common. He spent his 
later years cobbling shoes. This work he did at first in a 
little addition to his house, which was then and has ever 
since borne the name of ' the Boo.' 

'* After his wife died and his children grew up, the con- 
fusion of so many in the house, and the fact that they had 
so many callers among their young acquaintances, so dis- 
turbed his mind, that he sought relief by building the hut 
under the rock. Many living recall this cosey corner, where 
he peacefully cobbled shoes for the remainder of his days. 
On a shelf in the corner he kept a book in which he made 
a record of the interesting matters that came to his notice. 
... I have no doubt as to the existence of this, though 
it probably has long since gone to decay. Stanwood has 
several grandchildren living. 

" Lest I forget it, let me say here that Morgan Stan- 
wood's old ' boo ' — it was a booth, built of slabs and 


covered with turf, — Miss Rachel Day says, — was standing 
when the War of the Rebellion began, but old soldiers who 
left it when they marched, found it gone on their return." 

John Morgan Stanwood died October 30, 1852, aged

277. ZEBULON STANWOOD. (Zebulon, 137.) 

Zebulon Stanwood was born in Gloucester, September 18, 
1773. He was married there on the fifth of April, 1795, 
to Polly Roberds. Captain Zebulon Stanwood died at the 
age of twenty-nine, in 1802. His father, Zebulon, was 
made administrator of his estate. The widow married, in 
1807, Joseph Dennen, Jr., who later, in 1814, was made 
guardian of Zcbulon's two minor daughters. In the same 
year the committee appointed for the purpose reported as 
to what was the widow's right of dower in Zebulon Stan- 
wood's estate : 

Agreeably to the warrant annexed we the committee therein named 
have set off by metes and bounds, one third part of all the real estate of 
Zcljulun Stanwood, junior late of Gloucester deceased, unto his widow 
Polly Stanwood, (now Dennen) as her right of dower therein, and now 
present a return of our doings : The front room and the bed room ad- 
joining the same with the front entry and closet therein with the priv- 
ilege of the front door. Also the northeastern part of the cellar, as it 
is now partitioned off, together with the arch, with the privilege of 
going to the same by the outer and inner cellar at all seasonable times, 



also eight feet front of the western part of the garret (making about 
one third of the same, with the privilege of passing and repassing to 
and from the same at all seasonable hours ; also the privilege of using 
the oven for baking at all times ; with a privilege in common to all the 
land about the house.

278. THEODORK .STANWOOl). (Zebulon, 137.) 

Theodore Stanwood, whom Mr. Babson calls an " in- 
telligent ship-master," was born in Gloucester on Septem- 
ber 26, 1775. Sometime just before the war of 1812, 
Mr. Stanwood, with his eldest son, Theodore, sailed from 
Gloucester to Europe. While there, before they could set 
out for home, war was declared between England and the 
United States. The voyage home appeared dangerous to 
Captain Stanwood, so he put his son at school in St- 

^>^(r9^ ^i^^ 

Petersburg until they could safely return. He himself 
wandered about Europe, though travelling mostly in 
Sweden, Denmark, and Russia. There are in the posses- 
sion of the Stanwood family in Cincinnati. Ohio, many 


letters of the elder Theodore, to his son in school, and one 
letter from young Theodore's mother. This one from 
his mother is the earliest in date, and was received by the 
father in St. Petersburg, May 20, 1812, and forwarded, with 
a note from himself, to his son in St. Peter's School : 

Gloucester, March 4, 1812. 

My dear Son, With pleasure I take pen in hand to write to my 
dear Boy, to inform him of my health and that of his Brothers and 
Sisters. I hope you are a good boy ; do every thing for one of the best 
Fathers, who is doing every thing for your good. I anticipate much 
pleasure in your return. I expect you have improved in useful knowl- 
edge, for without that you can be nothing; think while you are young 
the advantiages you have, first the company and example of your 
Father and his friends. Oh Theodore make glad his heart and your 
Mother's by your good conduct. I think you have been remiss in not 
writing to me, as you know it would afford me so much pleasure, but 
hope soon to receive one. Grandma disires her love and Aunt Rogers 
and Uncle Daniel, and your grandppa, and accept an abundance from 

Your Affectionate Mother 

Sarah Stanwood. 
Master Theodore Stanwood 
St Petersburg. 

Mr. Stanwood's first letter is dated " Carlesham 7"" 
July 1812," where he arrived "after a long and tedious 
passage of seventeen days." He was en route to Gothen- 

The next letter was dated at Gothenburg, 1 1 August, 
181 2: " We are prevented from going home by detress- 
ing War. If we attempted it, may be confin'd in a prison 
for several years. Think for a moment what distress that 
would bring on your dear mother." 

On August 23d, while still at Gothenburg, Captain Stan- 
wood wrote another letter, which gives a graphic descrip- 
tion of what American sea captains could look forward 
to, in those days, if they put to sea: 

l..:ti^....^u^ Li^J...-^.'^..J^4LL 





Think for one moment if you [had] been on board the Caliban or 
any of these American ships which left Russia this sumitier, how your 
dear Mother would have been distres'd. You would now have been as 
Mr Ingraham and Mr Blanchard is, on board a man-of-war going to 
England there to be confined in Prison, perhaps for several years. 
, . . The Arrabella has arriv'd so that I shall likely be back in 
about two weeks, by which time I hope to find you nearly accomplish'd 
in German. I am here learning to speak Sweedish and get on pretty 
well, I think next winter I shall study German and Russ. You must 
take o^ood care I do not get before you. Adieu, God bless you and let 
me hear from you often, and believe me your friend and father 

Theodore Stanwood. 

The next letter, dated October i8th, in Stockholm, seems 

to signify that for some reason the younger Theodore had 

changed schools, in a manner not entirely pleasing to his 

father : 

I confess 1 was astonished when I heard of your leaveing the St 
Peters School and my feelings much hurt, but if what Mr Haven tells 
me is true, your good conduct since will reconcile me to it. 
Addressed to 

Theodore Sta.nwood Jin*^. 

Care of Mess" Stieglitz & Co 
St Petersburg. 

A gap of over a year occurs in the correspondence here, 

and during that time the father and son were still kept 

abroad by the war : 

Carleshamn 24'*' October 18 13 

My dear boy. Yours of the 16 Ult enclosing one for your good 
Brother I have received ; so much were I pleas'd with their contents 
that 1 forwarded both on by Mr Gibson to your dear Mother, as I can 
easily Conceive how pleasant it will be to her to read such letters com- 
ing from her darling boy. I request you will thank Mrs Beverley for 
me verry kindly for her attentions to us on our berthdays and say I 
hope her adopted son will Cancil the obligation by his good conduct. 

The next month, November 20th, Captain Stanwood 
wrote from Gothenburg: 


The unhappy war between Great Britain and America, I am in hopes 
by next spring will end, when we shall be enabled to sail quietly home. 
Many Americans are now in this place, but none from Gloucester. 
Several are from Boston, among them are Capt. Hopkins, Mr Clap and 
Mr Haven. 

Twice again Mr. Stanwood wrote from Gothenburg, on 
the twenty-fourth of January and the twenty-fifth of March, 

My dear boy, No doubt you supposed me long ere this to have 
been in America, but 1 am not so fortunate ; the frost set in so suddenly 
and so severe that in one night the harbour of Gothenburg entirely 
clos'd up, and prevented more than forty sail of ships leaveing this 
port, no Vessel has pas'd in or out for more than four weeks, nor can 
we expect to have any comunication with England or America for four 
weeks more. ... 

GoTHENBERG 25 March 1814. 

Dear Theodore, Since I wrote you from here I have been [having] 
another tour through Sweeden, have visited Carlsham and Copenhagen ; 
at the latter place I remained four weeks, return'd here on the 20"" in 
Company with Mr Isaac Clapp of Boston, and Capt. Burroughs. I 
had the pleasure to hear from Mr Van Sassen who left St. Petersburg 
on the 4"' February, that you had perfectly recovered your health, which 
1 most fervently pray may be preserved ; he also informs me of your 
having obtaiiCd a Premium for your proficiency in the German language. 
This is highly gratifying to me. Mr Van S. tells me he heard Mr Midden- 
dorff say you were very industrious. I suppose the strict attention to 
your studies accounts for not having written me since the 16"' of Dec. 
1 saw a letter from you yesterday to Mr Ricliards of the 4'^ January. 
1 was pleased with its contents, except the post script. I must say 
if I had been assisted to indite, would not acknowledge it, without 
absolute necessity, that is, would not to tell a lie about it. I will 
only observe its not always necessary even the truth should be spoken. 
I must beg you in future to write me as often as you can find leisure to 
do It, to the care of Messrs. Joseph & Olaf Hall, Gothaberg. When 
you want assistance, I dare say Mrs Beverly will instruct you without 
your saying to me it is altogether her composition. 

We have had a very severe winter in Sweeden, for two months 
together we have had from 15 to 25 degrees frost. The ground is still 
covered with snow at least two feet thick, and the harbour frozen solid 


outside Wingo beacon. You may recollect the place we were at Anchor 
in the Bellona. I have been far beyond that in a Sledge this winter. 
No packets have arrived here since the 24th of December. Of Course 
I could not get any letters from home. Mr Haven and Mr Cabot 
have been nearly three months in England. I have [not] heard any- 
thing from them. I expect much news when a Packet arrives. I have 
the pleasure to tell you great hopes are entertain'd of Peace between G. 
Britain and the U. States. Two New Ministers are appointed to meet 
Mr Adams at Gothenburg where the British Government have fix'd on 
a convenient place for negotiations. God grant the result may prove 
favourable. Here is a new inducement for you to hasten your studies. 
We shall likely soon be enabKd to return home under the American 
flag. I hope in my next to have the Pleasure of communicating to you 
some news from home. By the first opportunity I shall send my 
Pourtrait in Minature.* It is very like me, therefore 1 think you will 
value it. I had it taken in Copenhagen. As your dear .Mother [has] 
one, I have concluded to give you this and will most likely send it by 
Mr Delano from Carlesham. 

Adieu my child. God grant you health and happiness. Prays your 

Affectionate father 

T. Stanwood. 

P.S. Give my Respectful Compliments to your good friends Mrs 
Beverley, the Doctor & Mr .Middendorff & not forget little James. 

The last letter from the elder Theodore was written 
from " Carleshamn 27 April, 1S14." prestmiably just 
before he set sail for home : 

I have sent you by mr. Delano from Carlscrona my portrait in Min- 
ature handsomely set which 1 presume you will value. . . . 

Captain Theodore Stanwood never reached Gloucester, 

but was drowned on his passage home. The last letter in 

the package saved by the younger Theodore was one 

from Mr. Ignatius Sargent announcing to him the death 

of his father : 

Boston December 28", 1814. 

My Young Friend, With the most unpleasant feelings I commence 
my correspondence with you. I had promised myself much in con- 

* Reproduced in this volume. 


versing with you by letter, during the remainder of your Stay in Europe, 
and much more on your acquaintance and from the information I should 
receive from you on your return home from your studies in Europe, 
(with your late and most excellent Father) but I am now with really 
the keenest of feelings obliged to address you on the melancholly sub- 
ject of his Death — and a father who was so Ytry justly beloved hy you, 
and one who was beloved by every one who knew him — more particu- 
larly by myself, who have been in close intimacy with him for i6 years, 
and during that time I can say with trulh and pleasure, I never once 
discovered a f^mlt in hhfi — to you my young friend it must be a most 
pleasing consolation indeed, that your late good and most affectionate 
of Fathers, has left behind such an excellent character, & that he was 
really so much beloved — you must now my dear friend, step into his 
Path which will lead you to honour & Virtue — ... Should it not 
be possible, by any cause whatever, that you cannot immediately come 
home, you will by all means, write your dear Mother and me, if it should 
be perfectly convenient. My wife and children all are with me in 
Love and regards to you, and with a wish that 1 may soon see you at 
home to alleviate all in your power the feelings of your distressed 
Mother, Brothers, and sisters, I subscribe myself 

Your Sincere frend, 

Ignatius Sargent.

studied at the Maine State Seminary and at Dart- 
mouth College, was admitted to the bar in 1865, 
and for many years was an able attorney and 
picturesque figure in the courts in Boston. " He 
also had offices in other cities, and oftentimes 
when he was not to be found around the Equitable 
Building for several days it was because he was 
trying a case in Washington, Baltimore, Phila- 
delphia, Chicago, or Portland. If there was a 
case of unusual importance on in any of the cities 
mentioned, Harvey Hadlock was almost certain 
to l)e there, wearing well-polished black shoes, a 
long black coat that would be voluminous on any 
other man, an immaculate white collar of the kind 
most familiar to the public through the pictures 
of Gladstone, Daniel Webster, and other men of 
their station, and a smoothly brushed silk hat. 

" ]5ut though business might be never so press- 
ing, Mr. Hadlock was yet able to make himself a 
genial companion at the table, or as one of a group 
of men capable of appreciating a classical quota- 
tion or an extract from the words of Pinckney, 



whom he held in deepest reverence, and never 
failed to quote when it could be aptly done. 

" His success with juries was remarkable and 
worthy of note ; the pathetic side also strongly 
appealed to him, and he had the power of as 
strongly presenting it to others. In person a 
man of unusual size, he commonly made use of 
words of many syllables."' He died April 13, 1897.

369. WILLIAM STANWOOD. (William, 216.) 

Captain William Stanwood was born in his father's 
house at Mere Point, Brunswick, on April 17, 1785. 

Captain Stanwood's character was one that made an 
impression upon people who came in contact with him, 
and in consequence stories are still told of him in Bruns- 
wick. One lady writes : " Captain William was a very 
successful sea-captain, besides being extensively engaged 
in shipbuilding, and at one time was one of the rich men 
of Brunswick. He was called a very eccentric man, and 
he married an English lady quite as eccentric as himself. 
But with all his eccentricity he was a noble specimen of 
humanity, never deviating from what he knew was right, — 
a square, honest, upright, Christian man. He hated

hypocrisy and abominated anything hke pride. His sister 
Kate had for her most intimate friend a very beautiful 
young lady, Mary Estabrook, in whom he also was deeply 
interested. I cannot say that they were engaged, but 
they wanted to be, and would have been, but that pride 
stepped in between. It happened in this way: Mary had 
been on a visit at the old home of Kate and William, and 
William was to take her home, as he had done on many 
previous occasions. On this particularly bright and beau- 
tiful morning, Mary kissed Kate good-by and gayly tripped 
to the door, expecting to take her seat beside the gallant 
captain in his fine turn-out. But instead of the coach 
and two, there stood an old war-worn-looking nag har- 
nessed to an old-fashioned country market wagon. It 
was a sight to behold ! and poor Mary flinched a little, 
then bravely mounted into the comical old vehicle, and 
started for home (a most delightful drive of about three 
or four miles). It was all right in the country, but could 
she brave it out through the entire length of the main 
street of the village? How could she bear the ridicule of 
the curious? With such thoughts disturbing her better 
self, she raised her eyes, and saw the sign J. Perkins, 
Cobbler. ' Oh,' said she. * William, I forgot to say that I 
have an errand at the shoemaker's shop. Let me stop 
here, please, and do not wait for me ; I can easily walk the 
rest of the way.' " She remained an old maid for the rest 
of her days, so the story goes. 

Shortly after this episode he was called to join his ship, 
and sailed for Europe. He returned a year later, setting 
sail from Liverpool. On the ship with him was an English 
lady, Anne Loudon, on her way to Philadelphia in the care 
of a minister and his wife. When they had arrived in 
port, and had gone on shore, the minister sent for their 


baggage; Captain William, however, would not let Miss 
Loudon's trunk go, so that she was forced to return to 
the ship, to find out the reason. Captain William there 
proposed to her, and they were married August 3, 1830. 
Anne Loudon was a woman capable of doing most things 
well. She even preached in the absence of the minister, 
and every one seems to speak most highly of her ability as 

a preacher. 

Captain William Stanwood died, July 9, 1853. His 
widow outlived him for thirty years, and died February 

23, 1883.

Honorable Aaron Augustus Sargent, United States Min- 
ister to Germany, a grandson of John Stanwood, was born 
at Newburyport, September 25, 1827. He learned the 


printer's trade, and at the age of twenty became a reporter 
in Washington, D.C. Two years later, he went to Califor- 
nia, during the gold fever of 1849, ^nd engaged in mining, 
but he soon turned to journalism and founded the " Nevada 
Journal." At about the same time he studied law, and 
was admitted to the bar in 1854. Mr. Sargent was elected 
district attorney of Nevada County two years later, and in 
i860 was sent to Congress, serving until 1872. The year 
after his election to the House he was the author of the 
first Pacific Railroad act that was passed in Congress. 

Mr. Sargent was a vice-president of the Republican 
National Convention which nominated Abraham Lincoln 
in i860. In 1872, he was elected Senator from California, 
and took his seat the day after his term as congressman 
expired. In March, 1882, the President appointed him 
Minister of the United States to Germany. In the con- 
troversy, during President Arthur's administration, over 
the exclusion of American pork from Germany, the State 
Department at Washington published Mr. Sargent's confi- 
dential despatches, " So gross a blunder as this naturally 
irritated a trained diplomatist like Bismarck, but he appears 
to have held Mr. Sargent responsible for the faults of Mr. 
Frelinghuysen, which certainly was not just. It is difficult 
to see how any Minister could have behaved more judi- 
ciously, or with more dignity and self-respect, than Mr. 
Sargent did." (New York "Tribune," April 13, 1884.) 
The American Minister was bitterly attacked by Bismarck 
and the German press. In March, 1884, President Arthur 
sent to the Senate his appointment as Minister to Russia, 
which was confirmed on the twenty-sixth, but Mr. Sar- 
gent, now in ill-health, declined the Russian mission and 
resigned his position at Berlin. He died at San Francisco, 
August 14, 1887, and left a widow and three children.

Stanwood died at St. Pierre, Martinique. John and Atkin- 
son Stanwood were the administrators of his estate. His 
widow married, in 1828, Captain John Wyllie. Captain 
Wyllie went on a voyage three weeks after his marriage,

ried for her third husband a Mr, Edwards.

456. JOHN STANWOOD. (Joseph, 246.) 

John Stanwood was born in Newburyport, on September 
19. 1794- "There is a well-founded tradition in the family 
that in 181 3, when he was learning his trade, he was sent 
some distance on business connected with it, and was capt- 
ured by a body of British soldiers. He was put on board 
a prison-ship, where he suffered much. One day when the 
roll of prisoners was being called, one of the officers noticed 


John and coming to him asked, * Have you a brother 
Joseph Stanwood ? ' John replying that he had, the man 
continued, ' He is my brother, too,' intimating that he 
was a brother Mason. 

" Joseph Stanwood seems to have done him some special 
kindness, in acknowledgment of which the officer con- 
nived at John's escape from his confinement. It was 
winter and very cold, and John's feet were frozen, in con- 
sequence of which he was always lame." * 

Mr. John Stanwood's business was that of a contractor 
and builder. Sometime before 1820, he moved to Hart- 
ford, Connecticut, and on November 30th of that year 
married and settled there. He married three sisters, the 
daughters of Benjamin and Candace (Bidwell) Graham. 
The eldest, Candace, bore him two children, and died Octo- 
ber 8, 1824. On January 10, 1826, he married Emily, the 
second daughter. She had no children, and died August 
16, 1827. Some years later, April 4, 1834, he married 
Sally Graham, their fourth daughter. 

Mr. John Stanwood died April 28, 1838, and his widow 
March 7, 1845.

The Rev. Mr. Stanvvood's daughter. Mrs. Thomas, has 
preserved his autobiography, which contains many facts 
of interest. She has kindly consented to allow it to be 
printed here : 


H^ritten for his Daughter Mrs. Bradley Martin Thomas of 


My DEAR Daughter, There is nothing in my life that seems 
worthy of being put on record, except what God has done for and by 
me. All that I desire to hold in grateful remembrance while I live & 
to record as a deserved testimony to his & for his praise. And as 
there will be no one when I am gone from whom you can obtain the 
information you desire, I have decided in compliance with your wishes, 
to leave for your own eye, a brief record of such things concerning 
myself & my relations as may seem calculated to interest you. I was 
born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, October 21, 1798. My parents 
were Joseph and Sarah Stanwood : our family circle embraced eight — 
five sons and tiiree daughters of whom I was the youngest but one. 
My oldest sister Ann (or Nancy as we used to call her) was the only 
child of my father's by his first wife Eunice Marchant of Cape Ann, 
who died young. For his second wife he married Sarah Dodge, 
daughter of William and Deborah Dodge of Beverley, Massachusetts, 
who was the mother of eight children, one died at the age of two 
years, all the others settled in life and raised families : their names 
were Huldah Dodge, Joseph, Cornelius Dodge, John, Sarah, Henry, 
and Atkinson. 

I do not know from what foreign countries my ancestors came ; my 
father's family I have been told lived many years ago in Brunswick, 



Maine, and afterward in Salisbury on the other side of the Merrimac 
River, opposite to Newburyport, but ultimately the family all settled in 
the latter place. My grandfather is said to have been a sea-faring man 
and was lost at sea about the time of the Revolutionary War. My 
grandmother's name was Mary Atkinson and belonged to a family of 
that name in the vicinity of Newburyport ; her name is perpetuated by 
that of my brother Atkinson and that of his daughter Mary Atkinson 
Stanwood Greene. A cousin informed me that she was converted when 
quite young under Whitefield's preaching in that town. She died of 
the small-pox taken by inoculation about the year 1800. I have no 
personal recollections of her. The family consisted of three sons 
John, Joseph and Thomas (died Feb. 5, 1856 aged 92) and four 
daughters, two of whom married brothers named Noyes, one a Mr. 
Gibson who was blind for many years, and the other a Mr. Bowen. All 
except one settled in Newburyport and lived to advanced years, some 
very aged. I knew them all well. Of my father's early life I know noth- 
ing, save that he at the age of sixteen was in the Revolutionary Army for 
a few months, and was with Washington at West Point when Arnold's 
treason was discovered. My mother was the youngest, I believe, of a 
family of ten, five sons and five daughters ; her parents I have been 
informed died very suddenly about a week from each other at the time 
of the Revolutionary War. Three or four of the sons and daughters I 
never saw, they having followed their parents to the grave ; the others 
I knew well. Uncle John Dodge and his sisters Aunt Huldah Conant 
and Aunt Fisher lived and died in Beverley, Aunt Lancaster in Salem, 
New Hampshire. Uncle Thomas who also died very suddenly and 
Aunt Patty (Martha) as we used to call her (she was never married) 
lived in Newburyport. Aunt Patty figured largely in the early history 
of several, if not all, of the children in our family. She lived in a 
chamber provided for her by one of her brothers, who lived in another 
place, in a house of which he owned a half and my father the other 
half. After a while my father built a house for himself on another 
street and we lived in it ; from that time some one of our family went 
daily to look after her, and do what she might need for her comfort. The 
time of the decease of these relatives, either on my father's or mother's 
side, I do not know. Their children also are most of them, if not all 
gone. Mr. Sargent, Depositary of the Am. Tract Soc. in Boston & 
his brother U.S. Senator Sargent of California are grandsons of my 
uncle John Stanwood. 1 never saw the Senator; he is s** to be a very 
popular man. 
My oldest sister Nancy was married about the year 1809 to Joseph 


Hills of Newburyport (a house joiner) where they lived a few years, & 
in the time of the war of 1812-1815 on account of the stagnation of 
business they moved to Plaistow N.H. & settled on the homestead — 
his father being a very aged man. In that town they spent the 
remainder of their lives. They had 2 sons and 3 daughters. The 
oldest son died young — left one daughter. The other son William 
Henry is a lawyer in i'laistow & father of the assistant Professor of 
Chemistry in Harvard University.* Hannah the oldest daughter 
and Sarah both married men who became Deacons of the Bap. Chh. 
there, and Huldah, the youngest, married the Pastor, br. Wheeler died 

young. My sister died in the year aged & Mr. Hills died 

aged . They were members of the Congregational Chh, and 

he, I think, was a deacon. My sister Huldah married John Il.sley (a 

joiner) of Newburyport who died in . They had two daughters 

(still living 1880) Mrs. Rowena Knight & .Mrs. Huldah Picket. Their 

mother died aged . They were not professing Christians. 

My sister .Sarah married Thomas Flanders (a shoemaker) of Plaistow 

and died in ere she had reached 30 yrs. of age leaving two young 

daughters, the youngest of whom died in a few years —the other still 
lives I suppose. Mr. F. died many yrs. ago. My brother Joseph 
learned the sail-makers trade. He married Miss Catherine Greenleaf 
of N — Port. After some yrs. he, with partners engaged in the grocery 
& provision business — carried on a trade with the West Indies & 

finally went Captain of a ves.sel & died there in , yrs. old. 

He left four sons — Charles who, 1 think was the Superintendent of the 
Water Works of the City of Boston & died there 2 or 3 )ts. ago — 
George, a farmer in Iowa — Albert, a civil engineer has been held in 
high esteem for his services in the same Department in Boston, now 
I believe resides in Maine — and .Moody who I think is dead — & their 
Mother also. She joined the Presbyterian Chh. but he made no pro- 
fession tho' was tho't to be Converted a few years before his death. 
Cornelius learned to be a Cabinet maker & after working a year or two 
at his trade he went to Boscawen N.H. & worked with a .Mr. Daniel 
Dodge formerly a resident of N. Port — learned of him to run a grist 
mill — married his daughter Mary and settled down there as a miller. 
They had three daughters & two sons. Jane the oldest went West 
a farmers wife and died in Minnesota Aug. 1880 — Eliza Ann, said to 
have been a noble girl, was a Teacher, is dead — Catherine married 
Robert Couch a grandson of my father's oldest sister & resides in N —

port — is a Baptist. Mr. C. has been engaged in Marine Insurance — 
is tho't to be wealthy & was a few years ago a member of the Gov- 
ernor's Council. Daniel, as you know, graduated at Bowdoin College, 
Me. & died soon after of small pox. Charles went west & I fear has 
not done very well. 

When on a visit, with your mother, to Boscawen about 1830, I bap- 
tized my brother & his wife in their mill pond. In a few years he lost 
his wife & moved to Hartford, 1837, in expectation of having business 
with my bro. John, but was disappointed by misfortunes in his affairs & 
by his death : & after remaining a while he moved to N — port having 
married at H. Miss Mary Kilbourne, whom I knew, for his second 
wife. He was not successful in business, & was soon taken sick & 
died and his family were scattered. His widow returned to Hartford 
where I saw her once many years ago & the last I heard of her, she 
was Matron in some public Institution in Providence R.I. She was a 
highly esteemed Member of the Bap. Chh. Hartford. 

My bro. John after learning the joiners trade went to Hartford Ct. 
& remained there during his life. He married Miss Candace Graham 
of Wintonbury (now Bloomfield) 4 or 5 miles north of H. She died 
young leaving one son John Henry. He then married her sister 
Emily Graham who lived but a few years — leaving no children — & 
my brother took for his third wife another sister [Sarah] Graham who 
with one daughter Emily G. survived him for several years, but now 
she & John H. also is dead. My brother died at H. in 1837 or 8. He 
was pretty successful in business & left a comfortable property for his 
family. All his wives were good women — members of the Bap. Chh. 
but he himself made no religious profession. 

My brother Atkinson learned the business of soap and candle mak- 
ing & for a number of years he and my father were in partnership. 
He remained in N— port till his age required that he sh*! retire from 
active business pursuits when he removed to Boston. He married 
Miss Eliza Plummer — a very excellent young woman. They had both 
lived together for several years in the family of Mr. Dodge, of whom 
my brother learned his trade. Their married life was not long — she 
died of consumption leaving one daughter, Eliza Ann who also died 
young of the same disease. [" Three daughters Eliza Ann, Sarah 
Dodge and Mary Atkinson; William the first child died young." 
Judith Rogers.] His second wife was Miss Sarah Rogers of N— port 
— she was the mother of 4 children, John, Lydia Maria, Emily Swett 
and Judith Rogers. She also died of Consumption — my brother 
then married her sister, Miss Hannah Rogers — two good wives the 


last of whom is still spared to him to comfort him in his advanced 
years. Their father's name was John — he was the lineal descendant 
of John Rogers the Martyr who was burned at the stake in Smithfield 

Eng^ in the year , from whom has been handed down a seal to the 

one who in each successive generation sh"* bear his name. 

I now come to myself. I was born in Newburj- Port Mass. Oct. 21, 
1798. In my early childhood an incident occurred in which was mani- 
fest the special care of God, which has been over me all my life. I was 
probably between one & two years old. My sisters on leaving the 
bed-chamber in the morning, while I was asleep, raised a window up 
high under which stood a large trunk ; when I awoke I climbed onto 
the trunk & in looking out of the window lost my balance, and fell 
down among the domestic iron utensils. The Physician pronounced 
me unhurt, but years afterward showed that the fall probably caused a 
hernia which shaped my course as to business & from which I did not 
recover till I was 40 yrs old. The next great event of my childhood 
was the sudden death of my mother, 10 minutes past 10 in the evening 
of Feb. 27"' 1 8 10, in the 48"' year of her age. She fell dead in a 
moment in the midst of her domestic concerns. I had retired to bed 

— but 1 remember the evening well — I was in my twelfth yr ; the scene 
has been among my distinct recollections thro' life & I do not think the 
anniversary has ever passed without bringing to my mind the circum- 
stances of our sad bereavement. From the time I was old enough I 
was kept constantly at school while I remained at home, but as 1 could 
not forecast my future course I did not make so good a use of my ad- 
vantages as I might ; yet I held a respectable standing in my class & 
in the estimation of my teachers. — The time came at length when it 
was necessary for me to look toward business & on the 13"' of July 1813, 
1 left home to go to Boston to be an apprentice to my Cousin, Mr VVm. 
Lancaster, to learn the mason's trade. It was an important step for a 
young and ine.vperienced boy to take — to go out at once from under 
a father's daily watch & care, to live among Strangers & to be in 
some Sense my own master. But I had been bro't up to read the Bible 

— to receive instruction from the Assembly's Catechism — to attend 
public worship always on the Sabbath & to attend school daily — so 
that I was guarded against forming habits of vagrant idleness & vice 
and was in some measure prepared for the duties of my new station, to 
watch against allure to evil doing. I do not recollect of spending but 
two Sabbaths contrary to my previous custom, tho' I did not uniformly 
attend the same place of worship. When at home I had attended the 
Presbyterian Church, Dr Daniel Dana, Pastor, but as the 3* Baptist 


Church was near where I lived, I finally settled down there as a con- 
stant attendant. In Oct. 1814, my attention was called to the subject 
of personal religion. In the midst of a conversation with my fellow- 
apprentice who was not a christian, respecting the baptism of a young 
man, which took place the day before (nothing as I recollect being said 
which particularly struck my mind) I saw & felt myself to be a great 
sinner against God. From that time I attended prayer meetings as 
well as the services on Lord's day & call distinctly to mind seasons in 
which my heart was overwhelmed with grief on account of my sins — 
my distress at times was very great. I took new and deep interest in 
secret prayer, in reading the Scriptures, and in hearing the Gospel 
preached — I loved it. My taste and my course of life were changed. 
I loved the service of God & desired His people for my companions. 
For these reasons I began, after some time, to hope I had become a 
Christian, tho' I could not specify any particular time when I tho't the 
change took place. On Thursday eve'ning Ap. 6. 1815, I presented 
myself to the 3'^ Bap Church — told my experience, was received, & 
baptized the next Lord's Day Ap 9. by the Pastor Rev. Daniel Sharp. 
In a few days my mind began to be impressed with the duty of preach- 
ing the gospel, & especially with reference to the heathen, for whose 
salvation I felt a very ardent desire. My physical labor was of 
such a character that it very much increased the trouble I experienced 
from my hernia, which had been slowly enlarging for several years 
& in June on consulting a man skilled in treatment of such cases, 
he told me I must give up my business. I then tho't my duty was 
made plain, but I could not decide a question of so much impor- 
tance & I soon found employment as a clerk in a Hardware Store 
in Boston. In the following Winter or Spring, God was pleased to use 
me as the means of originating the Sunday School in our Church. 
Such Schools were then just beginning to be established in our 
Country. Among the boarders in my boarding house was a Mr 
Wright, an old gentleman, a member of the North Episcopal Church 
in the City. He told us that their people had been getting up a school 
for the of giving instruction on the Sabbath in spelling & 
reading, as well as in Bible truth, to ignorant, neglected, outcast 
children. That was the class for which S. S.'s were first intended in 
Boston. .Somehow there had already sprung up in my heart a desire 
to be useful & I tho't that would be a most excellent way to do good. 
For the organization & support of such a School, money was needed 
to procure Clothes & books for the children. I accordingly drew up a 
subscription i)a])er — went & consulted one of the Deacons (Kendall) 


got his approval, circulated the paper, & obtained what signatures I 
could. The members who thus became interested in the enterprize 
took it in charge & the School lived & prospered. As I left Boston 
within a few months, I do not recollect at precisely what time in 
1816 it was got into full operation. — In the fall of 1816 I attended 
a select school in Newburyport, & the winter following taught a 
District school in Beverly, a mile or two from Danvers, the resi- 
dence of Rev. J. Chaplin, who then had a number of young men 
studying for the ministry. In the Spring I returned home & there 
had an opportunity of seeing Br James Colman one of the Danvers 
students & a member of our church in Boston, who was soon to sail for 
Burmah as a missionary. I conversed freely with him upon the question 
of my duty to preach the gospel, which had continued [in] my mind & 
had become a matter of deep anxiety to me, for it was necessary that 
I should be engaged & yet I felt that question ought first to be settled. 
At Mr C's urgent wish I promised to write my Pastor & seek his 
advice. The result was — a time was appointed for me to try to preach 
before the Church. I went to Boston & undertook the service after 
most earnestly praying in secret devotion, that God would help me if 
He had called me to the work of the ministry, but if he had not. — 
that he would confound me. This was July 10, 181 7, — my text was 
12 Zachariah chap lo"" vs. "They shall look on Him &c." & I enjoyed 
great assistance from God in speaking. The next week I made another 
effort at a meeting in a private house & felt that God again helped me. 
Lord's day the 27"" the Church, in considering my case, was pleased to 
pass a vote approving of my engaging in the work of the gospel ministry 
— and Sept 24"" I commenced study at Danvers under the tuition of 
Rev. Jere*" Chaplin — under the patronage of the Mass. Bap. Educa- 
tion Society. I taught school 6 weeks in the Winter — then returned 
to my studies again. Maine was then a part of Mass. & the Baptists of 
Boston & vicinity together with some in Maine had made arrangements 
to establish an Institution of learning under the name of the Maine 
Literary & Theological Institution, & selected Waterville on Kennebec 
River as its site. Mr Chaplin, our Teacher, was appointed Professor 
& in May or June 1818 he, with most of the students, moved to Water- 
ville & began work in a very large dwelling house as our Head Quarters. 
Students increas'* & prosperity followed. Early the next winter I was 
very remarkably preserved from being drowned, & I record it here in 
acknowledgement of God's goodness to me. The village of W. is on 
the West bank of the river — just by the Ticonic falls — the largest in 
N.E. A gentleman from China 16 miles East came to see me about 


taking a school. He left his horse on the East side of the river & 
crossed over to VV. on the ice. On his return I accompanied him over 
the river, but he was careful to cross some distance above the falls & 
then went down the east bank. I came back alone & supposed it would 
be safe to Cross just at the head of the falls as the ice seemed strong 

— I ventured on, but had not got far before one foot broke thro' at the 
same instant a man crossing above warned me that I should be in. As 
I witlidrew my foot from the hole, I saw the water rushing under me 
with frightful velocity. I was on frozen froth & snow, but God kept 
me from plunging into the jaws of death thus opened to devour me. I 
retreated carefully to the shore wondering at my exposure & at my 
almost miraculous deliverance. 1 took the school in China — we had 
a long vacation in Winter for the convenience of students who desired 
to teach. Four miles north of Waterville, in the town of Fairfield was a 
place called Kendall's Mills with a few families living near, but they 
had no religious privileges. -By some means I learned the state of 
things there & in Summer of i8ig I got up a S. School which with the 
assistance of some of the Students was carried on for some time — 
how long I do not recollect. The place has grown and has become the 
site of a Baptist Church. The next winter I taught school in Winthrop 
8 or 10 miles west of Hallowell, boarded in the family of Rev Mr 
Houghton, Pastor of the Bap. Church, did his chores & supplied his 
pulpit in my school house (a good large brick building) for my board 
while he went on a missionary tour into the back settlements. — Before 
this, I think. Rev. Avery Briggs had been appointed Prof, of Lan- 
guages — & about this time a College Charter was obtained from the 
Mass. Legislature for our Institution & preparations were made to erect 
a large 4 story brick building — 8 rooms on a floor for the use of 
students, about i mile north of the village center. This summer 1820 
the special care of God over me was manifest in preserving me when 
bathing in the river from dashing my head against a hidden ledge of 
rocks. I dove into the water & on coming up found myself face to 
face with the ledge. Surely it was of the Lord's mercy that I was not 
killed. In the fall Prof. Briggs received a letter from Mr. Boynton, a 
Teacher in Wiscasset, wishing to have one of the students go there 
& open a select school. He advised me to go, but on arriving I 
found that a student of Bowdoin College, belonging in W. was trying 
to get up a school for himself. I waited a few days to know the result 

— he failed. I then circulated my paper and soon obtained a sufficient 
number of pupils, & opened my school in the Academy. There was a 
Unitarian Congregational Church & the Methodists & Free Will Baptists 


occupied the Court House alternately, but no Baptist Chh. The Bap- 
tist strength was Mr. Boynton & wife with whom I boarded (not 

members I think) Mrs. Owen & Mrs. (members) Mrs. Taylor 

a Free will Bap. Miss Brooks member of Cong — church & Miss 

a Teacher & a trembling Christian. We soon began to talk about 
commencing a Baptist meeting. With this in view these friends were 
Called together one evening at Mr. B's for consultation & prayer. We 
decided to begin & made an appointment for preaching at my school 
room on the Sabbath. I served as Sexton & Preacher. We had good 
congregations — God encouraged us & I continued to preach during my 
school term. One Sabbath I had the pleasure of exchanging with Dr. 
Judson father of the Missionary, who had become a Baptist & was 
Pastor of the Church at Nobleboro — 10 or 15 .Miles east of Wiscasset, 
& returned to hear him preach in the evening from the words, "Go 
unto Nineveh &c " Jonah 3. 2. On my return to Waterville Br Adam 
Wilson — a graduate of Bowdoin — a brother of Mrs. Owen, took my 
place as preacher & not long afterwards the Baptist Church of Wis- 
casset was organized. Among my pupils was a fine lad Abel Wood — 
he soon went to Waterville, wxs converted & became Pastor of the 
Church. Its subsequent history I do not know. 

The next winter — 182 1 — I took a school in Winslow on the east 
side of the river, nearly opposite Waterville. Three gentlemen — Esq. 
Rice a lawyer and member of Congress — Esq. Paine also a lawyer & 
Mr. Swan gave me board in their families & saved me the trouble of 
going around the District. There was no public worship maintained 
in the place. I tried to supply the deficiency by preaching in my school 
house. In August, I think, 1822 occurred the first College Commence- 
ment. There were two graduates George D. Boardman & Ephraim 
Tripp from the Classical &; two John Atwood and myself from the The- 
ological Department. Boardman's course you know. I soon lost sight 
of Tripp & do not know how he .spent his life. Atwood settled as a 
Pastor in N.H — after a while entered the political arena, was elected 
State Treasurer but still endeavored to do good as Chaplin of the State 
pri.son. — Leaving Waterville was to me a serious event. I was about to 
step out into the world with a work in view for which I felt quite un- 
prepared ; but I hope God directed me. An Academy had been estab- 
lished at China & I soon received appointment as Principal. I had a 
large school about 100 pupils — many of them young men & women. 
Among them were two brothers, sons of a Congregational Minister — 
Elijah P. Lovejoy who was killed at Alton 111. by a mob many years 
ago an account of his zealous efforts in opposition to slavery, and Owen 


Lovejoy who was for a number of j'ears a prominent anti-slavery mem- 
ber of Congress — and also a young man — since father of Dr. Owen 
late of Detroit. I tinished one term & the Trustees wished me to con- 
tinue longer, but 1 felt more inclined to preach than to teach ; I left & 
on my [way] home stopped at South Berwick Me. to see some friends 
who wished me to remain. At that time a Mr. Boyd residing there 
occupied the Meeting House once in two weeks — who some years be- 
fore after being excluded from the ist Church Boston had taken up 
preaching. There was no prospect that good would be done for the 
people were [not] disposed to attend upon his ministry & tho' he had 
gathered 5 or 6 together as a church yet it was not in fellowship with 
Bap. Churches — and all desired some change. None, however, wished 
to take any direct steps to displace Mr. B. — he was left to take his own 
course. I remained and preached on alternate Sabbaths. The Con- 
gregation increased & the indications of prosperity were very encourag- 
ing. At length Mr. B. seeing the state of things took an unfriendly 
attitude, and being unwilling to live in strife, I left in the spring of 
1823. The friends renewed their efforts — got another young man to 
preach — built a good meeting house in a more central part of the 
village & organized a prosperous Church. The sum of $10,000 in equal 
parts was paid by Br. J. W. Seaver who afterwards moved to Rochester 
— Dr. Trafton (whose house was my home) & two brothers in business 
together by name of Parks — all noble men. Being at liberty I went to 
Boston & under the leading of Providence went to Canton 15 miles out 
& supplied the pulpit 6 months. I think there was a degree of religious 
interest among the people which continued thro' the summer & a good 
number, mostly young, were added to the Church. Many years after- 
ward I was told the brethren said they had never since had so interest- 
ing a revival as that. It was God's work — not mine. On leaving 
Canton Dr Baldwin suggested that I should go to Cornish Flat N.H. 
and wishing to visit my sister Hills at Plaistow & my br. Cornelius at 
Boscawen & finally reach Hartford and see my br. John, I decided to 
do so. I found they had a Pastor at Cornish but he was to leave in 
the Spring. 1 spent a Sabbath there — preached in the p.m. «& at a 
school house in the evening & some months afterward learned that a 
woman was haj^pily converted by means of the Sermon. The br'n 
wished me to return there. At Cornish I met Rev. Asahel Kendrick — 
father of Dr Kendrick of Rochester — who took me with him over to 
Cavendish Vt. & introduced [me] to the family of Judge Fletcher 
grandfather of our br. Fletcher — preached one evening in the school 
house. Thence I went to Chester — spent 2 or 3 Sabbaths & supplied 


the pulpit for the Pastor Rev. Aaron Leland, lieutenant Gov. of Vt. 
who was just then having some little trouble. Next I reached Hart- 
ford in the spring of 1824 — & while spending a few weeks there I be- 
came acquainted with Elder Bently the State Miss'y who wished me to 
go to Pleasant Valley in the town of Lyme where he was then supplying 
the Pulpit. I went, and found a very kind, pleasant, aflfectionate & in- 
telligent people who received me with open arms & at once made me 
feel at home among them. It was wholly a rural community. There 
was considerable religious interest — a verj' common thing under Br. 
B.\s labors. There was a very interesting class of young ladies — 
faithful living Christians — among them Miss Sarah Griffen — now 
Mrs. Byrne of Jackson — & among the aged ones Grandmother Lee 
(not to mention others) Oh ! how she shines in Heaven I 1 found work 
to do which enabled me to forget myself— & was happy in it. I was 
ordained June 23, 1825. I baptized I think but 2 or 3 there — the other 
converts had previously received the ordinance. Jabez Swan was a 
member of that church & there my acquaintance with him began. A 
great difficulty with me thro' life has been a want of confidence in my- 
self. The next winter & spring 1 gave way too much to the feeling that 
I could not sustain myself & contrary to the wishes of the church & 
people decided to leave. 1 had, however, an object in view — it was to 
be an Agent for the Baptist State Convention to promote the Circulation 
of The Christian Secretary published by the Convention — & the cause 
of missions. During the summer I preached one or two Sabbaths at 
Bristol without any thought of ever being Pastor there. In the fall I 
concluded to give up my Agency & go back to Lyme but did not in- 
form the Church — & before I had time to fulfill my purpose, I met Br 
Atkins at a Ministers' meeting at Weathersfield. He wished me to go 
to Bristol — I told him my purpose but thinking it would not much 
delay its execution I consented to go the next Sabbath. The Church 
then requested me to supply the Pulpit 6 weeks to which I consented 
still keeping in view my purpose to return to Lyme. Then they gave 
me a call to become their pastor, which I accepted, feeling that God 
had been leading me along & had thus made the path of duty plain to 
me. This was in the latter part of Dec. 1826. I had previously become 
acquainted with Miss Sarah Atwood of Hartford Ct., & on Feb. 21, 
1827 we were married by Rev. Mr. Bently. In the afternoon we went 
to Bristol and commenced house-keeping — setting up family worship 
which we always maintained morning «& evening. The people were 
very kind — we found many good friends — the few who yet survive still 
remaining steadfast, among whom I reckon with pleasure br'n Atkins, 


Hawley, Welch, Hitchcock & Brackett. How many have gone over 
the river and are numbered with the happy hosts of heaven. Several 
montlis of the winter and spring of 1828 Aunt Lydia Wadsworth spent • 
with us. In Bristol all our children were born & there our two little 
Sons were buried. In the autumn after your birth we went to Lyme to 
attend the New London Association — taking you with us. We went 
to spend a night with the family where Grandmother Lee lived — I 
carried you into the house put you into her arms & asked for her bless- 
ing upon you. Perhaps you have been receiving thro' life answers to 
her prayers. In one of the visits mother and I made to our friends 
east I baptized my br. Cornelius & his wife in his own mill-pond at 
Boscawen N.H. God was pleased to bless my labors in Bristol & we 
had two very interesting revivals. Br Atkins was a very great comfort 
& help to me & many others. Beside the loss of our children, we suf- 
fered a sad bereavement in the death of grand-ma Atwood. Mother 
was too feeble to nurse Henrietta very long & we put her under the 
care of Mrs. Ruth Stanley who proved to be a very excellent & affec- 
tionate foster-mother; & we took the opportunity to spend a few 
weeks at Lebanon Springs near Pittsfield Mass. A new meeting-house 
(1830) & conference-house or chapel (1831) were among the improve- 
ments while I lived at B. & both gave way to a new edifice erected in 
1880. — The time at length came in the Spring of 1834 when I tho't it 
best to close my pastorate having been there between 7 & 8 yrs. tho' 
I knew not where I should go. Just at that time a number of 
brethren in Hartford were making arrangements to commence a 
meeting in the south part of the city for the establishment of a second 
Church. I accepted their invitation to preach for them — the service 
was held in Franklin Hall. After a few months a church was organized 
& a meeting-house was built the next year. I baptized several — 6 1 
think — young ladies at one time whose conversion occurred after a 
Sabbath when God's presence in the Congregation was very manifest. 
I resigned the spring of 1836 & for some [time] supplied the pulpit at 
Wethersfield. 1 had heard of the springs at West Avon, N.Y., as a 
remedy for Rheumatism & wished that mother might have an oppor- 
tunity to try them. Canfield & Robbins, Booksellers in Hartford 
wished to open a Bookstore in Rochester. I entered into partnership 
with them for that purpose & moved to Rochester May 1837. Soon 
after getting settled brs. Hovey & Maltby called on me to supply 
the pulpit at Henrietta Corners. I did not feel satisfied with being 
engaged in business & in about a year I left the Book-store — a 
Mr. Stoddard taking my place with Canfield & Robbins. We moved 


to Henrietta & boarded for a while with Dea. Hovey & then with 
his son & in the spring of 1839 I accepted the call to the Pastorate of 
the Church in Rush where we lived 16 years. I purchased a few acres & 
also a house which I moved onto it & repaired and thro" the blessing of 
God we enjoyed the comforts of a permanent &. convenient home. During 
my first Pastorate of eight years the Church enjoyed a very fair degree 
of prosperity. We had the assistance of Elder A. C. Kingsley in one 
or two protracted meetings & considerable numbers were converted & 
baptized — including yourself. After closing my labors at Rush I 
supplied the 2nd Church in Rochester 20 months ; God granted his 
blessing & about 30 were received by baptism. In that time we had 
the pleasure of having Grandpa- Atwood in our family nearly a year. 
After that I supplied the Church in Fairport 2 yrs. — and then at the 
call of the Church in Rush I resumed the Pastorate for 2 yrs. In the 
winter of 1854 & '55 1 made up my mind to move West. You were 
married the 12th of Oct. '54 & being unwilling to have you leave us on 
account of the condition of your mother — and feeling that 
in our circumstances we should have a permanent home. I purchased the 
place in Kalamazoo where we have enjoyed many blessings at the hand 
of God in our temporal affairs, in our church privileges & in good 
society. When we left Rush Henrietta was in the Institution at 
Lima; & after graduating in the summer joined us in Kalamazoo. I 
did not intend to give up the ministry but rather to preach where my 
service might be desired. I supplied the Church in Allegan for some 
months — and also the Church in Galesburgh for a time & the Church in 
Centreville at two different seasons. It was at the latter place that 
mother was attacked with those severe nervous spasms from which she 
suffered thro' the remainder of her life. On the 5th of June i860, after 
a long period (more than 27 yrs.) of infirmity & privation mingled 
with more or less of suffering, she was taken from us leaving a sad 
vacancy in our family, to a mansion, I trust, prepared for her by Christ. 
In that summer Henrietta was baptized & by a public religious profes- 
sion took her place on the side of Christ. In September she took leave 
of us to pursue in Missouri her chosen profession of teaching for which 
she had already shown her excellent adaptation & won many friends. 
And O, how mournful would have been our parting could we have seen 
it was our last personal farewell. On the 30th of September following, 
God called her up higher — far — far away from us so that we could not 
know of her sickness or minister to her in her last hours. And after 6 
weeks of daily anxious, prayerful hoping for her return, our chief con- 
solation was to learn that she died peacefully, trusting in Christ. After 


mother's decease I supplied the Church in Allegan two yrs. & then 
spent a year in Grand Rapids with the 2d chh. A considerable part 
of the year 1863 I spent visiting our friends east, and on April 25, 1864, 
after nearly 4 yrs. of solitary life, I married my second wife, Sarah H. 
Francis, and having previously taken the pastoral care of the Church in 
Parma we lived there 3 yrs. and there had the privilege of baptizing a 
number of hopeful converts. After our return to K. I assisted at some 
protracted meetings — then preached in Bellevue over a year and after- 
wards supplied the pulpit in Climax about 6 mos. The next and last 
important event of my life for me to notice is the death of my late wife 
whom God kindly spared to me almost 17 yrs. & who has gone, I 
doubt not, to join our other loved ones in the heavenly home — and may 
we at last be a whole family gathered safely there. But this last sad 
bereavement is still so fresh I need not dwell upon it — I still taste its 

bitterness . I never can tell how much I am indebted to my two 

wives for the happiness of my life thro' their skillful and economical 
management of our household. They always made our home the 
abode of comfort. And to you too. Daughter, I am indebted for the 
same thing for you were obliged at an early age on account of mother's 
illness to fill her place in Care and domestic toil — and now, my Dear 
Daughter, 1 come, in my old age, into your family to be the object of 
your care — to partake of your affectionate kindness — & probably to 
spend the rest of my days. May God abundantly reward you & your 
husband for all your kindness to me. 

Your affectionate father, 

H. Stanwood. 
Kalamazoo, July, 1881. 

His daughter writes of him : 

He was a good preacher, sound and practical, logical & methodical 
in the arrangements of his sermons. 

He was also very skillful in the use of tools & would have made a 
fine mechanic. In the early stages of my mother's disease which was 
very acute, he made an electrical machine for her use, but it proved of 
little benefit. When my sister wanted an extra trunk on going .South, 
he made one much better of the kind, than could be bought. He never 
forgot his apprenticeship as a mason & could put up a cellar wall or a 
chimney as well as any one. He was for twenty-five years a Trustee 
of Kalamazoo College & spent much time as well as money, according 
to his means, for its upbuilding. 

He was six feet in height straight as an arrow till the time of his 


death & could read without glasses all his life & except for a slight 
deafness, his faculties were unimpaired. He died after a short & 
almost painless illness, November 7, 1883, having just passed his 85th

times, and had children by two of his wives. On October 
4, 1823, his intention of marriage with Eliza Plummer was 
recorded in Newburyport. She died June 26, 1832, and 
he married Sarah Smith Rogers, the following year, Ma)- 
16, 1833. Ill 1848 (March), she died of consumption, at 
the age of thirty-eight, and in May of the next year ( 1849) 
he again recorded his intention of marriage. His third 
wife was Hannah Rowe Rogers, who is still living ( 1898). 

Mr. Stanwood made his will in 1876, but did not die until 
May 31, 1884. During the latter years of his life he lived 
in Dorchester, Massachusetts, on Columbia Street. Beside 
the bequests to his family he left $100.00 to the Howard 

Benevolent Society of Newburyport, $100.00 to the Female 


Charitable Association, and a like sum to the Society for 
the Relief of Aged Females. The two latter Societies are

years he carried on successfully the trade of a leather- 
dresser until, through some legal misunderstanding when 
the Insane Asylum was built, he lost his water-power. 
Mr. Stanwood was in early life very active in church work, 
and sang with his wife in the choir of the First Church 
(organized in 1634) ; those were the days of box-pews, 
stringed instruments, and sounding-boards. He also had 
a love for mathematics. At one time he was a member 
of the Ipswich Light Infantry. In politics he was a Whig. 
He was twice married — first to Harriet, the daughter of 
Captain William Caldwell, of Ipswich, June 2, 1832, and 
had five children. A fine portrait of Captain Caldwell, 
painted in Amsterdam, is owned by the family. Mrs. Stan-

467. ISAAC STANVVOOD. (Isaac, 252.) 

Deacon Isaac Stanwood was born in Ipswich, Sep- 
tember 21, 1783. On June 12, 1810, he married Joanna 
Caldwell. The Deacon was a builder and housewright 
by trade, and when his oldest child, Daniel, was about 
two years old he built himself a house on Green Street, 
in which he and his wife lived all the rest of their lives. 
It was two doors off from the old Stanwood house and 
nearer the river. Just over the river, on the Turkey 
Shore road, was Mrs. Joanna Stanwood's birthplace, the 
old Emerson house, built in 1648. Captain Ebenezer Cald- 


well, her father, lived in it for thirty- two years, till his death, 
in 1 82 1. The young bride brought from this house a 
fine four-post bedstead which still stands in the Green 
Street home. 

They say that when the Deacon was shingling his roof 
his two-year-old son climbed up the ladder to the top of 
the house, in search of his father. His rescue was due to 
the Deacon's calmness and presence of mind. 

The Deacon and his wife both lived to a good old age, 
and many of their Augusta grandchildren came and stayed 
with them at various times, to go to the village school 
or the Ipswich Academy. 

In his later years Deacon Stanwood was a great sufferer 
from tic-douloureux. One of his grandsons remembers 



well that sometimes when it came on during the morning 
prayer the Deacon would hold out until the pain was un- 
bearable and then leave the room. His prayers were all 
alike on week-days, with a dififerent one for Sundays. Mr. 
Stanwood was a most upright man, much respected by his 
fellow-citizens. A portrait in crayon, by G. D'Almaine, of 
Boston, which is reproduced here, was made in 1850; it is 
in the possession of Mrs. F. V. Tenney, who still lives in 
the house which he built on Green Street. 

In the Ipswich burying-ground, not far up the hill, in 
a sunny spot, are the graves of Isaac Stanwood and his wife. 
The inscriptions are still very clear and legible :

William Parsons Stanwood was born in Boston, Novem- 
ber 29, 1800. Mr. Stanwood made many voyages to all 
parts of the world. He went a number of times to Sumatra, 
and on one occasion came from France with the historian, 
Mr. George Bancroft, as a fellow-passenger. On April 13, 
1827, he married Lucy Davis Howard, the daughter of 
Eleazer Howard, a merchant on Fleet Street, Boston. He 
died January 8, 1840, in Boston, at the age of thirty-nine, 
and was buried in King's Chapel. His wife lived, after 
his death, in that part of Needham which is now Wellesley, 
and died there, July 20, 1863. 

During the later years of his life Mr. Stanwood dropped 
the Parsons from his name. 

Children of William and Lucy: 

755. William, b. January 10, 1828. 

As a young man Mr. Stanwood made several voyages as 
super-cargo's clerk in the ships of his uncle, Mr. Lemuel 
Stanwood. On June 27, 1847, he set sail from Boston 
on the ship " Pontiac," Captain William Parker, bound 
for Calcutta. They made the Isle de Bourbon on Sep- 
tember thirtieth, and reached Calcutta on the twelfth of 


December. In Shirley, Massachusetts, is a private log- 
book and diar>- of Mr. William Stanwood's, owned by 
Mr. John E. L. Hazen, from which the following account 
of the voyage is taken : 

" We sailed from home on 26 of Oct 1847 for Calcutta, 
— made the light ship off Sand Heads 12 of Dec. 47 days. 

" The Pilot (Mr Wardon) came on board and took 
charge, the ship commenced working up the River the 
same eve. I left the ship on the 19 Dec. and came up to 
Calcutta in a boat where I arrived the same evening at 12 
o'clock P.M. 

" The ship arrived oflf Cooly Bazar on the 21st and com- 
menced loading on the 27th. In consequence of numer- 
ous failures in England and the bankruptcy of the Union 
Bank here little or no business was doing — and goods of 
all descriptions are unusually low. Mr S. employed as 
banian — Kalidos & Regunder Dutt who gave the utmost 
satisfaction by their regular and prompt attention to busi- 

"The ship was cleared on the 21 February and dropped 
down to Cooly Bazar — and on the morning of the 23rd 
were taken in tow by the steamer ' Andrew Henderson,' 
and proceeded down the River — Although at the most 
dangerous season of year, and the ship drawing the 
heavy draft of 19, 6 in. feet — we were but two days going 
down — and at daylight on the 25 stood out from Sand 
Heads with a fine breeze, bound for Boston. 

*' The passage home was generally pleasant ; we experi- 
enced but two severe blows, one off Madagascar the other 
immediately after we had rounded the Cape. 

" We took a pilot on board on the night of the 30 June 
but owing to the dense fog was compelled to anchor off 
Boston Light, making a passage of 126 days from Sand 

"At twelve o'clock next day (ist July) we got under 
weigh — and came to anchor at 5 P.M. having -been 
absent i year 3 days. 

"W. S." 


Again, in the diary, is a meagre account of a second 
voyage. He left New York on October 30, 1849, on the 
ship " Cygnet," bound for San Francisco. They arrived 
at Juan Fernandez on February 4, 1850. The only 
other entry of interest during this voyage was a part of 
a letter: 

" My dear J. 

" Long before this I should have written you in accord- 
ance with my promise, and I know not how to excuse my- 
self for not having done so ; however I will now endeavor 
to atone for my neglect by giving you a synopsis of my 
adventures since my departure from New York. 

" Nothing remarkable (save a heavy blow of 48 hours 
duration) occurred until the 22nd Dec. when we made 
the Lsland of Staten Land which is situated South East of 
Terra del Fuego, it consists of a chain of cliffs and moun- 
tains of a bold and terrifying appearance." 

He died in San Francisco.

487. LEMUEL STANWOOD. (David, 258.) 

Lemuel Stanwood was born in Boston, January 6, 1803. 
He married, February 8, 1837, Caroline Louisa Coolidge. 
Mr. Stanwood was a merchant in Boston, having his place 
of business at No, 5 Thorndike's Building, and his house 
in Somerset Court. In 1841, he moved his business to No. 
3 Oliver Street, and his house to No, 10 Beacon Street. In 
1843, he occupied the house at No, 49 Chestnut Street, 
where he passed the rest of his life. Mr. Lemuel Stan- 
wood owned Pew No. 26 in King's Chapel from 1844 until 
1 861, and was also a proprietor of the Boston Athenaeum.

Colonel Eben Poore Stanwood was born in West New-

Perley Poore. He was also a member of the Ancient and 
Honorable Artillery Company, and was discharged Sep- 
tember 14, 1857. 

At the outbreak of the Rebellion he was in a position 
where he could be of much service in raising troops and 
sending them to the front. As a selectman of the town, in 

1 861, he had full opportunity to exercise his abilities in* 
that line, and also in drilling volunteer companies. In 

1862, he volunteered as a private, raised a company, was 
made captain, and took it to the front in the Forty-eighth 
Regiment, Massachusetts Infantry. He served his term in 
Louisiana, at Port Hudson, Donaldsonville, and other 
places on the Mississippi River, and was in every battle in 
which his regiment was engaged. His record, as copied 
from the records in the adjutant-general's office in Wash- 
ington, reads : " Was not absent from his command during 
his term of service." He was promoted to the lieutenant- 
colonelcy of the regiment (the lieutenant-colonel having 
been killed in battle), received the flag-of-truce which 
surrendered the stronghold of Port Hudson, and for a con- 
siderable time was in command of the regiment, and also 
for a short time in command of his brigade. 

He escaped unwounded, although prostrated by the ex- 
plosion of a shell, and lay on the battlefield all day from 
early morning till dark, when he was carried to the rear 


by the ambulance corps. He was complimented by the 
general of his division for coolness under fire. 

After his discharge from the army, September 3, 1863, 
he was elected a representative to the General Court in 
Boston. For twelve years he has held the office of town 
clerk, and for the last fourteen years that of registrar of 
voters in West Newbury.

730. EBENEZER STANWOOD. (Ebenezer, 463.) 

Ebenezer Stanwood was born in Ipswich. On October 
20, 1833, he married Martha L. Burnham, of Essex, Massa- 
chusetts, and carried on the business of a tanner and 
currier. Mr. Stanwood moved to Essex later and became 
a prominent man there. Before 1853, he was a justice of 
the peace, and in i86r he represented the town of Essex in 
the General Court of Massachusetts.

Daniel Caldwell Stanwood was born in Ipswich, March 
31, 181 1. He received such an ordinary education as was 
to be acquired in these days in a dame's school of a New 
England country town. At the age of fourteen years he 
went to Augusta, Maine, making the journey, as was then 
usual, in a sailing-vessel from the Ipswich River to the 
Kennebec River. He entered the bookstore of A. P. Brins- 
made as a clerk, and made his home at the house of his 
uncle, Jacob Stanwood. In a few years he purchased a part 


interest in the store ; later still he became the sole pro- 
prietor, and continued in the business of books, stationery, 
music, and paper hangings until shortly before his death. 
But his interests in business were not confined to this store. 
In the early fifties he organized the Cushnoc Manufacturing 
Company, which built a paper mill at Vassalboro, of which 
he was secretary and treasurer, and virtually the business 
manager. The company did not prosper, and ultimately it 
passed into the hands of Daniel C. Stanwood and John S. 
Sturgis. Located on a stream which was fed from a pond 
of not very large water-shed, it was frequently stopped for 
weeks in the summer, owing to a lack of water, and it never 
was a remunerative enterprise. 

Daniel C. Stanwood was an active and prominent man 
in the community in many relations. He was for many 
years the leader in musical matters in Augusta — leader 
and manager of the choir of the Congregational Church, 
occasionally a teacher of a singing-school, the only person 
in Augusta able to tune a piano, his store the centre of all 
musical activity, himself the enterprising citizen who per- 
suaded the great singers of the day, the bands and orches- 
tras which were then rarely " on the road," to give concerts 
in Augusta, on the way. He possessed a voice of rare 
sweetness and cultivation, and was the tenor and leader of 
the Augusta Glee Club, which gave occasional concerts in 
the town and even in other places not far away. 

He was a Freemason and rose rapidly to the oflfice of 
Master of Bethlehem Lodge, where he acquired a reputa- 
tion for excellence in " work " that spread all over the 
State. He was also an officer in several of the higher 
organizations of Freemasonry. He was elected the first 
captain of the Augusta State Guards, the only military 
company of the time in Augusta ; and was commissioned 


by the governor, major in the first (and only) regiment of 
State militia. He was the first city clerk of Augusta and 
served in that office several years. In politics he was a 
Whig ; and when the Know-Nothings and the newly- 
formed Republican party left the Whig organization little 
but the name he was one of the " Straight Whigs." This 
remnant of the Whig party coalesced with the Democrats 
in the State election of 1855, and Mr. Stanwood was 
elected, with B. A. G. Fuller, uncle of the present chief- 
justice of the United States, a member of the Legislature. 
They were gloriously defeated by the Republicans in 1856, 
in the Fremont campaign. 

Daniel C. Stanwood was above all active and interested 
in the church. He joined the church when a very young 
man, was always the intimate friend of his pastor, was 
scrupulously regular in his attendance upon every Sunday 
and week-day service, was invariably in his seat to lead 
the singing at social meetings, and carried his religion into 
every-day life. He had inherited the traditions of strict- 
ness in observing the Sabbath and in other matters which 
are now voted " puritanical," and brought up all his chil- 
dren " in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." Singu- 
larly lovable, genial, and charitable in his nature, enjoying 
a good story or a good joke with rare zest, he was stern 
and strict in all things relating to the statutes of the Lord. 
The New York " Observer," to which he was for many years 
a subscriber, was always cut in two on Sunday morning, 
and the "secular department" — most inoffensive reading 
save that it was not religious — was carefully laid away, 
not to be read until Monday — when no one cared for it ! 
A beautiful memorial window has been placed in the 
church in Augusta by his children, to whom his memory 
as a father, as a congenial companion, and as an uncom- 


promising opponent of all laxity in religion and morals, is 
ever fragrant. 

It has been hinted that his early education was deficient. 
His self-education was thorough. He had a fine literary 
sense and an eager love of good literature. His business 
gave him opportunities to see all that was new and good 
in the world of letters and he stored his mind full of it. 
He never aspired to be a writer; perhaps the thought 
never occurred to him. In any event, the extraction of a 
living from a bookstore in a town like Augusta, and to 
bring up a troop of children numbering eleven in all, of 
whom nine survived him thirty years, would have taken 
the literary ambition out of any man. But his corre- 
spondence with his parents, his sisters, and his children 
when they were absent, is charming in its grace as it was 
beautiful in its chirography. 

His death, January 11, 1863, was sudden. It gave a 
great shock to the community. The grief was universal, 
and hundreds of his friends expressed their sorrow in such 
ways as they might. When the Rev. Alexander Mc- 
Kenzie, now of Cambridge, but then pastor of the Con- 
gregational Church of Augusta, preached his farewell 
sermon, referring to some of the changes during his pastor- 
ate, he spoke of the removal of " the sweet singer," and 
added, " I have never seen bitterer tears shed at a funeral." * 

Mr. Stanwood married on November 7, 1835, Mary 
Augusta Webster, of Salem, Massachusetts, the daughter 
of Peter Eaton Webster, a merchant of that city. She is 
still living (1898) in the old house on Chestnut Street,

751. EBEN CALDWELL STANWOOD. (Jacob, 468.) 

Eben Caldwell Stanwood was born in Augusta, Maine, 
August 27, 1822. In 1838, he followed his half-brother, 
Jacob, to Boston, and went into the auction-house of 
Thomas W. Sears & Co. He was a short time with H. G. 
K. Calef, and then with F. C. & J. Manning. Before he was 
twenty-two he was admitted as a partner in the latter firm, 
which some years later changed its name to Manning, Stan- 
wood & Co., but finally became Ebcn C. Stanwood & Co. 
In his later years, Mr. Stanwood, with associates, was a 
proprietor of the Adams Sugar Refinery. He was also a 
director in the China Mutual Insurance Company, after 


Mr. Stanwood married in August, 1844, Eliza Jane Dole, 


the daughter of Carlton Dole, a former citizen of Augusta, 
and died on March 28, 1866, at his house in Chester 
Square (now Massachusetts Avenue). A meeting of the 
merchants of Boston was held on March 29th, at which 
Mr, Alpheus Hardy presided. They drew up resolutions 
of esteem and sympathy, and voted to close their stores 
for the afternoon at one o'clock, on the day of the funeral. 

The funeral services took place at the Shawmut Congre- 
gational Church, and the sermon was by the Rev. E. B. 
Webb, D.D., a personal friend of Mr. Stanwood. Dr. 
Webb spoke of Mr. Stanwood's integrity and uprightness, 
but especially of his greatness of heart. As an illustration 
he said that " a merchant, who had been prostrated in the 
crisis of '57, like a great tree torn up by the roots, said, 
' The first hand that touched me was Stanwood's.' 

" As a Christian, he embraced, and held, with an intense 
faith and affection, all the great distinguishing doctrines of 
the Gospel. He had been trained in the Puritan ways of 
his ancestors. And when he came to the city he obtained 
a seat in the sanctuary and occupied it, acknowledging the 
direction and stamp of the maternal hand. The event 
which occasioned the change in his views and feelings, 
smiting and opening the deep springs of his religious 
nature, was the death of a beautiful child. . . . He 
was not only a husband and father, but a priest of his 
own house, ministering daily before the Lord."

985. Isaac Edward, b. June 13, 1848. Living in Gloucester, 

1898. The Boston "Journal" for July 8, 1898, has the 
following reference to him : 

" Gloucester, July 7. 

"A singular coincidence has been developed in connec- 
tion with the gallant cruiser ' Gloucester,' and her 
equally gallant commander, Lieutenant-Commander 

" It has been ascertained that the ancestors of the Wain- 
wright family came from England to Gloucester about one 
hundred and fifty years ago and settled here. Their 
descendants in turn moved to other sections of the country, 
one to the South, from which branch Lieutenant-Com- 
mander Wainwright is descended. The old Wainwright 
house here stands near the Methodist Church at East 

" The family in the male line is not represented here, but 
is collaterally in the female and their descendants. Isaac 
Stanwood, the sailmaker, is a third cousin of the cruiser's 
commander, his mother being a Wainwright. Thus the 
connection of the ' Gloucester ' and the Wainwright 
family seems in the natural order of things."

832. EDWARD W. STANWOOD. (Francis B., 

Edward W. Stanwood was born in West Newbury, July 
12, 1849. His father died when he was but eleven years 


old, and he began at once to assist in the support of the 
family, by selling alewives. These he carried around in 
a two-wheeled cart and sold. In the summer, berries took 
the place of alewives, and in the autumn the berries were 
superseded by the Standard Encyclopedia, the Robert 
B. Thomas and Emerson's Almanacs. At the age of 
thirteen he went into the shoe factory of James Durgin 
& Son in West Newbury and stayed there for five years. 
Then came a year and a half as a butcher in Haverhill, 
Massachusetts, and after that, until 1871, he was in the 
hardware business, with C. H. Fellows & Co., in Haver- 

In 1 87 1, he went to Chicago and there obtained a posi- 
tion as travelling salesman for a hardware house, which 
he held until the great fire of 1871. The firm was unable 
to collect its insurance and could not continue business, 
but Mr. Stanwood had three positions offered him with 
other houses, and from that time until the present has 
been continuously successful. 

On May 21, 1873, he married Emma L. Hayward in 

Mr. Stanwood has been an active Republican. After 
having refused the nomination for alderman from the Thir- 
teenth Ward, for four successive times, he consented to run 
the fifth time, and was elected in 1894 for a term of two 
years. He served for a year and a half most acceptably, 
until a measure came before the Council which would 
take about $1,500 a day from the receipts of a great 
belt railroad. Mr. .Stanwood supported the measure, after 
an investigation which caused him to think that the bill 
should pass. Thereupon the papers which had hitherto 
indorsed nearly every vote that he had cast, turned upon 
him and caused his defeat when he came up for reelection, 


in April, 1896. In sending material for this sketch, Mr. 
Stanwood enclosed four newspaper clippings, two favor- 
able to him and his action, and two bitterly adverse.

member of the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity. He was 
graduated from Bowdoin in 1861, and three years later

ical and economic subjects for the leading magazines; 
and his " History of Presidential Elections," since its ap- 
pearance in 1884, has come to be a recognized authority

" The basis of this book is Mr. Stanwood's ' History of Presidential 
Elections.' The work in its original form has occupied a field pecu- 
liarly its own, has been recognized as a standard authority, cited as 
such by all recent writers on American history, and used as a text-book 
in the leading universities. The work is now wholly rewritten as to 
all the elections prior to 1856, greatly modified in the later chapters, 
and brought down to date by a detailed account of Mr. Cleveland's 
second administration, and of the election of 1896. Throughout the 
work a great amount of new matter has been introduced, drawn chiefly 
from original sources. Two new chapters — the first discussing the 
origin, development, and practical working of the electoral system, the 
other examining the evolution of the National Convention as an extra- 
constitutional supplement of that system — greatly enrich the work as 


a text-book of political science. The " History of the Presidency " is the 
only book in existence which narrates the circumstances of the incep- 
tion of all national political parties in America, and records all their 
authoritative platforms ; and it is therefore indispensable to colleges, 
libraries, and all students of our political history and institutions."

Horace Calef Stanwood " was born at Augusta, Maine, 
February 26, 1848, and there received his early education. 
He came to Columbus in September, 1880, as assistant 
treasurer of the Buchtel Iron Company, and served after- 
wards in the same capacity for the Ohio and Western Coal 
and Iron Company. When this company came under the 
control of the courts, Mr. Stanwood, by reason of his 
thorough familiarity and complete mastery of the busi- 
ness, was retained by the assignee to settle the affairs of 
its great property. The work had just been completed to 
the satisfaction of the court and the creditors of the com- 


pany, when the first evidence of what afterwards proved 
a fatal malady made its appearance. Vainly endeavoring 
to arrest the progress of the disease at home, Mr. Stan- 
wood went to the mountains of Colorado, where, in the last 
week of summer, he died. 

" Mr. Stanwood will be remembered as a leading and pro- 
gressive spirit in all musical matters. He sang in Trinity 
and St. Paul's churches, was an active member of the Or- 
pheus Society, the Columbus Orchestra, and the Glee 

" He came to Columbus with no other introduction than 
the refined and gentlemanly bearing of a man of brains 
and culture. He won friends from the first, and these first 
friends were but the nucleus of a large and devoted num- 
ber that were never lost to him. They found each year 
some new bond, some new sympathy, that increased, as 
acquaintance ripened, their esteem and regard for Mr. Stan- 
wood. His temperament was peculiarly happy. He car- 
ried sunshine wherever he went. With proper considera- 
tion for the business intrusted to him, with perfect loyalty 
to those whose material interests he served, his leisure was 
filled with engagements designed to aid some charity, to pro- 
mote church work, to advance the interests of the numer- 
ous musical organizations with which he was connected, 
or to contribute to the pleasure and entertainment of his 
friends. Unselfish and disinterested in his zeal, his ear- 
nestness but reflected his generous and unaffected sympa- 
thy. Sincerity and uprightness were innate characteristics. 
He was without suspicion or thought of evil, and attributed 
to others his own candor and honesty. 

" Therefore, 

" Be it resolved by this Board of Trade that in the death 
of Horace C. Stanwood this body has lost a useful and 


honored member, and this people a trusted and valued

Mr. Stanwood married, October 8, 1877, Mary Reid, of 
Brooklyn. He died in Colorado Springs, August 23, 
1894, and was buried in Augusta, Maine. Mrs. Stan- 
wood lives (1898) in Wellesley. Massachusetts.
