There is hardly an undertaking more discouraging in its 
inception than the preparation of a genealogy of the families of 
a town. It is a laborious task to awaken and to sustain the indi- 
vidual interest of the people most concerned. Frequently they 
alone can supply information. It is a work with which they 
are unfamiliar. If they have records, these are often incomplete. 
They do not see the necessity for accuracy of detail in the com- 
pilations they prepare. Dates of births, marriages and deaths 
are given from memory when Bible and other records are access- 
ible. Family traditions of ancestors are sometimes inconsistent 
with the dates of births of these ancestors. Especially is this 
true of their service in Colonial wars and of the War of the 
Revolution. Nor is this surprising, as instances were found by 
the committee having in charge this work where such traditions 
had already been published as facts in printed genealogies. It 
is, therefore, apparent that many returns required correspondence 
to correct palpable errors. There was a satisfaction, however, 
in the result obtained when these corrections were secured that 
well repaid the exertions to obtain them. In some cases it was 
impossible to procure anything beyond fragmentary accounts of 
families or to reconcile inconsistent dates in their genealogies. 
Information was sought even after the signatures of this volume 
were printed. Therefore, as a part of this preface will be found 
some additions and corrections disclosed too late to be incor- 
porated in the text. 

It was the ambition of the committee to secure full genealogies 
of those families long identified with the town, especially those 
dating from the early settlements. For some time it seemed 
likely that this part of the work would be confined to a very few 
families. Gradually, however, descendants of other families 
were found whose interest was enlisted until some record was 
obtained of a considerable majority of the important families 
connected with the history of Canterbury. This and other data 
became so voluminous that an abridgment was necessary to adapt 


the material to the space allotted to it in the original estimates 
for the cost of publication. This condensation has necessitated 
the rewriting of practically all of the genealogies, a work of no 
small labor and care. As finally printed, this volume with its 
very full index, prepared by Miss Harriet L. Huntress of Concord, 
whose previous experience is a guaranty of the completeness and 
accuracy of her work, exceeds the size at first intended. 

In spite of the trials incident to an undertaking of this kind, 
the committee having it in charge have enjoyed the work and 
at times have found it fascinating. Their obligations are due 
to all who have assisted in the effort to make this feature of the 
permanent records of the town interesting and reliable.

1. Danieli Ames, husbandman, settled in that part of Exeter, whioh is now 
Newmarket. The Ames estate was about six miles from Exeter village, 
pleasantly situated on the north side of the Piscassic River near the 
corner of Hall's Mill and Lee roads. Near the westerly side of a large, 
well-cultivated field, there is a laioU elevated ten or fifteen feet. On 
this knoll Daniel Ames built his log house. It had two rooms on the 
floor and was two stories in height. The upper story projected over 
the lower so that the house when used as a garrison could be defended 
against the attacks of Indians. Here he lived with his family, and here 
he d. in Jan., 1754. In this field at a bend in the river, and near its bank, 
is another knoll which is covered with trees. It was here that Daniel 
Ames and his household were buried. The neglected graves are dis- 
tinctly marked by small, rough stones upon which there are no inscrip- 


The will of Daniel Ames "aged and well stricken in Years, and in a 
weak habit of body," dated 24 Dec, 1753, was presented for probate, 
30 Jan., 1754. It makes his sons, Nathaniel and Jacob, executors, and 
it gives to them the homestead. The wiU also mentions the following 
children : 

2. i. Simons 

3. ii. Samuel. 

4. iii. Daniel. 

iv. Nathaniel, resided in Newmarket. Had a son, Nathaniel, Jr. Both 
signed the Association Test, 12 July, 1776. The father sold 
John Ames, 28 Aug., 1782, "all my farm whereon I now live, 
containing 90 acres with the buildings thereon." 

V. Jacob, m. Sarah Hersey, resided in Newmarket. His son, Jacob 
Ames, Jr., m. Mehitable Gooden, 1 Aug., 1779. Had another 
son, Daniel. Refused to sign Association Test. D. 1806. 

vi. David, d. 24 Dec, 1753, leaving a widow, Sarah, to whom his father 
wiUed the easterly end of his house so long as she remains a 

vii. Anna, wife of PoweU. 

viii. Lydia, wife of Charles Rundlett. 

ix. Mary, to whom her father's wUl gave a legacy and a room in the 
westerly end of his dweUing house so long as she remained 

2. Simons Ames (Danieb) came to C. about 1750, and bought of his brother, 

Samuel, lot 86, near the Center. He was elected constable in 1755 and 
1756, a tithingman in 1754 and again in 1770. His name appears on 
the tax hsts from 1762 to 1780. His wiU was presented for probate 13 
May, 1783. The town records show nothing of his descendants, unless 
he had a son Simon, for one of that name was taxed in 1785 and is in the 
census of 1790. 

3. Samuel2 Ames (Davieh) b. in Newmarket 13 Feb., 1723; m. Hannah 

DoUoff, who was b. 18 Jan., 1728. He came to C. about 1749, settling 
near the meeting house at the Center on the farm now owned by 
Joseph M. Houser of Canterbmy. In 1791, he moved to the "Borough," 
having obtained po.ssession of a large tract of land there, upon which 
was an unfinished two-story house which he completed. It is still 
intact. This farm remained in the possession of liis descendants until 
recentty, when it was purchased by Leroy A. GUnes. Samuel Ames d. 
16 Jan., 1803. His wife d. 23 Jan., 1804. They are buried in the family 
burial lot on the farm near the house. Children: 

i. Samuel', b. 12 May, 1745, in Newmarket. Came to C. with his 
father about 1749, moved to Boscawen, where he m. Jane, only 
sister of Col. Henry Gerrish. She was b. 20 April, 1745; d. 30 
March, 1814. He d. 1 Sept., 1825. 

ii. Sarah b. 25 March, 1747, in Newmarket; m. Laban Morrill. (See 
Morril Gen.) 

5. iii. David, b. 27 May, 1749. 
iv. Hannah, b. 23 June, 1754. 

4. Daniel^ Ames (Danicb) came to C. about 1749. He bought lot 137 of 

his brother Samuel that year, and the northerly half of lot 88 of Thomas 


Clough. He was elected constable in 1763, highway surveyor in 1769- 
His name appears on the tax lists until 1771. As he did not sign the 
Association Test in 1776, it is probable that he died prior to that date. 
The town records show nothing of his descendants, if he had any.

The following legend is one of the theories of the origin of this ancient name 
variously spelled, Ayers, Ayres, Eayers, etc., which dates back to the eleventh 
century in Derbyshire, Eng. 

"WilUam the Conqueror, flung from his horse, and his helmet beaten into 
his face, was rescued by a faithful follower named, Truelove. 'Thou shalt 
no longer be called " Truelove, " ' said the duke, ' but Eyre (or air) for thou hast 
given me the eire I breathe.' Truelove was given lands in Derbyshire, a coat 
of arms, leg and thigh in armor cut off, and an honorary badge still worn 
by aU the Eyres in England. " 

Who was the earUest New England ancestor of the Canterbury family has 
not been determined, but it is known that in the middle of the eighteenth 
century three brothers, Jonathan, John and Perldns, hved in Portsmouth, 
active in civil and religious affairs, doing their share in the development of 
the new country. They were engaged in shipping and the various industries 
connected with the leather trade, at that time an important commercial 
interest. The records show that they were searchers and sealers of leather, 
1750 to 1780. Jonathan was mentioned in 1751 as constable — 1763, surveyor 
of highways — 1774, "to inquire who kills Dear contrary to law." Perkins 
signed petition to selectmen "to call a meeting of the inhabitants of Ports- 
mouth to take action regarding the consignment of tea." He was one of 
the charter members of the Third Congregational Church, organized by a 
number of persons withdrawing from the Congregational churches of Ports- 
mouth, with a more liberal platform for discipUne and "the New England 
confession of faith for doctrine." The names of Jonathan and Perkins with 
their sons were subscribed to the Association Test of 1776. 


1. JoNATHANi Ayers m. Alice, daughter of Edward Sherburne, who probably 

later retui-ned to England. That she had the courage of her convictions 
is shown by the following letter: 

PoRTSMO. 1st Sept'r, 1795. 
Mrs. Alice Ayres, 

As you left us — and profess to BeUeve in that Doctrine which we 
Judge to be Heresy — We have taken those Methods to reclaim you 
which the Great Head of the Chh. has enjoined on us in his Holy Word, 
and You stiU refuse to be reclaimed — and wiU not submit to the Dis- 
cipline of this Chh. according to Your Solemn Covenant engagement. 
We do now in the fear of God reject you as a member of this Clih. 
and unworthy of our fellowship untill you Return by Hearty repentance, 
Signed by the Desire and Consent of the Third Congregational Chh. 
in Portsmouth, this 1st. Day of Sept. 1785 — and voted by sd. Chh. to

The connection between the Blanchards of C. and of Northfield is not clear, 
but those of Northfield claim descent from the same ancestor, Thomas, 
the Huguenot, who came to America in 1639 in the ship Jonathan and set- 
tled in Braintree, Mass., in 1646. It was a Benjamin Blanchard who was 
the first settler in Northfield, and he went up from the fort in C. in 1760 
through the unbroken forest to the foot of Bay Hill and located on the farm 
later owned by Judge Peter Wadleigh. Having made a clearing and erected 
a shelter, he went back for his wife, Bridget Fitzgerald, and nine children 
(History of Northfield, Part II, p. 23). Benjamin's father was scalped by the 
Indians in their raid on C. in 1746, near his home not far from the fort. The 
father's name is given as both Benjamin and Richard (see Chapter II, Vol. I of 
C. History). 

1. Benjamin Blanchard was probably a scout on duty in C. in 1746 after 

the date of his father's death, and he signed with others a petition to 
the Provincial Government in 1748 for protecting the grist mill of Henry 
Lovejoy in West Concord (Bouton's History of Concord, page 176). 
He m. Bridget Fitzgerald and had nine children before he emigrated to 
Northfield on 1760.

John Stark's regiment in the Revolution. He married and had children.

listed May 30, 1775, as a private in Capt. Samuel 
Gilman's company in Col. Enoch Poor's regi- 
iment. His second enUstment Sept. 23, 1776 was 
in Capt. Jonathan Robinson's company, "74 men 
enlisted by Colo. William Whipple to reinforce 
the Army at New York." On the "28"' Day of 
March Anno 1780," Jonathan Chase of Stratham 
gave to "my well beloved son Edward Chase of 
Sanbornton as a part of his portion out of my 

estate," a deed of "all that one hundred acre lot of Land in said San- 
bornton which I bought of George Jaffery Esq., the Original Proprietor, the

Tradition and probabiUty identify the name Cogswell with the old English 
town of Coggeshall, which is located forty-four miles from London in the county 
of Essex. It is the behef of the Cogswells now holding the ancient Cogswell 
possessions in Westbury, County of Wilts, England, that their ancestors came 
from the county of Essex and were there known as Coggeshall with the various 
spellings which appear, Cogshall, Coggeshall, Hoggeshale, Cogesholl, Coge- 
shole, Coggashael, Cogshol, Coxhall, Cockshall and Coggshale. Besides the 
family tradition, experts in such matters say that Cogswell and Coggeshall 
in England have the same origin. The Coggeshalls in the reign of Henry VI 
became a widely distributed race, the branches remaining in several counties. 
Between Henry VI and Charles I there was plenty of time for the name to 
change among bad spellers. But while Coggeshall and Cogswell have the same 


origin in England, they are two distinct names in America, although sometimes 
confounded. The Coggeshalls of this country have mostly descended from 
John Coggeshall, the first Governor of Rhode Island, while the Cogswells, 
with the exception of a few recent immigrants, have sprung from John Cogs- 
well, who came from Westbury Leigh, County of Wilts, England, and settled 
in 1635 at Ipswich, Mass.*

educational institutions in that town, giving the land and contributing 
freely towards the first meeting house, which was erected by private 
subscription in 1768-69. Prior to this, public worship was conducted 
in Mr. Cogswell's house. During the Revolutionary War, his patriot-

William' Curry came to C. about 1733 and settled in the southeastern 
part of the town near the Concord line. Here he d. 30 Jan., 1763. His will, 
which was dated 23 Dec, 1762, and probated 9 March, 1763, makes provi- 
sion for his wife "Ann" and for his children, who were all b. in C. The widow, 
Ann, appears on the tax lists of C. from 1767 to 1780. The records of the town 
show the birth of William Curry's children as follows: i. William^, b. 1 Aug., 
1741. ii. Samuel, b. 5 Aug., 1745. iii. Mary, b. 22 July, 1747. iv. Eliza- 
beth, b. 21 May, 1749. v. Margaret, b. 23 March, 1751. vi. Sarah, b. 15 
Nov., 1752. vii. John, b. 1 Jan., 1754. viii. Robert, b. 30 April, 1757. ix. 
Thomas, b. 31 Aug., 1760. 

The will of Williami gives to his wife, Ann, his home place until his youngest 
son, Thomas, becomes of age, and then she has " a third of his estate as the law 
directs." Thomas became of age in 1781, and he is found on the tax lists 
of C. in 1785 and 1787 and in the census of 1790. He held minor town offices 
from 1784 to 1793. His mother, if living, probably resided with him until her 

William, the oldest son, was willed 200 acres of improved and undivided 
lands in C, while Samuel, the second son, was given his father's land in New 
Holdemess. The census of 1790 shows both a William and a Samuel Curry 
as heads of families in that town. William Curry appears on the tax lists of 
C. only once, in the year 1767. 

John and Robert, the other sons, received all of their father's lands in Bar- 
rington. The latter was taxed in C. in 1780, two years after he became of 
age. He was probably settled in that part of the town that was set off this 
same year as Northfield, where he is found in the census of 1790. He m.

Prepared by N. W. Davis of Winchester, Mass. 

The Davises of Canterbury sprang from the early family of that name who 
settled in Newbury and Haverhill, Mass., and a branch of which migrated to 
Dover during the first days of our New England colonization. The family 
suffered severely from the attacks of the Indians. During the years 1693 
to 1725 no less than ten fell at the hands of the savages, while three or more 
were made to endure the hardships and cruelties of long captivity. At the 
Oyster River massacre of 1694 the entire family of Ensign John Davis, Jr., 
was wiped out, his house being burned to the ground, himself, wife and at 
least three children slain, and two daughters taken captive into Canada. 

The emigrant ancestor, James» Davis, was b., according to Bible records, in 


Marlborough, Wiltshire, England, and, as nearly as can be ascertained from 
other records, about 1589. He emigrated to New England as early as 1634, 
setthng first at Newbury (now Newburyport), Mass., where he was made 
freeman 4 March 1634-5. In 1640, having received authority from the 
General Court, he, with eleven others, cleared the forest at the Indian village 
of Pentucket, and founded the present citj"^ of Haverhill, Mass. He was among 
the first selectmen chosen by the town, in 1646, and on the list of taxpayers 
for that year he is shown to have been the largest. In 1660 he was made repre- 
sentative to the General Court. He was an ardent Puritan, in mute testi- 
mony of which still reposes in the files of the Ipswich Court a record wherein 
he, his son Ephraim, and several others signed a paper presented to the court 
in Feb., 1659, accusing John Godfry of Andover of witchcraft. He d. at 
Haverliill 29 Jan., 1679. Of his wife, Cecily, very little is known. Her 
name appears frequently in early Norfolk records, and she is claimed by Bible 
records to have also been b. in Marlborough, England. She d. at Haverhill, 
28 May, 1673. Children: 

i. James2, b. probably about 1620; m. first, 1 Dec, 1648, Elizabeth 
Eaton, dau. John' of Haverhill, who d. 21 Jan., 1684; m. .second, 

about 1685, Mary . He was made freeman in 1666, 

took oath of fidelity and allegiance in 1677, and d. at Haverhill, 
18 July, 1694, having had ten children, all by first wife. 
2. ii. John, b. about 1623. 

iii. Ephraim, b. about 1625; m. 31 Dec, 1659, Mary Johnson of Andover, 
Mass.. took oath of fidelity and allegiance 1677, and d. at 
Haverhill, 28 Sept., 1679, having had nine children. 

iv. Samuel, b. about 1627; m. 17 Dec, 1663, Deborah, dau. Wilham 
Barnes of Haverhill; resided at Amesbury and Haverhill and d. 
at the latter place 10 Sept., 1896, having had ten children. 

v. Sarah, b. about 1629; m. 18 June, 1663, John, son of John and Mary 
(Marsh) Page of Haverhill; d. at Haverhill 7 July, 1680, leaving 
a large family. 

vi. Judith, b. about 1631; m. 1 Sept., 1647, Samuel Gile of Haverhill, by 
whom she had seven children. 

2. Ensign John^ Davis (James^) of Haverhill, Mass., and Dover, was b., 
according to Bible records, in Marlborough, England, and according to 
a deposition made in later years, about 1623. He came to New England 
probably with his father as early as 1634, first Hving at Newbury, then at 
Haverliill, Mass., where he owned land in 1642. In 1650 he was chosen 
on a committee to lay out the boundary between Haverhill and Salis- 
bury, and in 1652 received a grant of six acres of land in Haverhill. 
During that year, or early in 1653, he removed to Dover, where he took 
up lands near the mouth of Oyster River and built the first Davis gar- 
rison in New Hampshire. This garrison stood on the north side of 
the river, immediately west of what has since been known as Davis' 
Creek, on land conveyed to him bj' Valentine Hill, Aug. 14, 1654. He 
purchased further land of said Hill in Greenland, and received numerous 
grants from the town of Dover. He was selectman of Dover, surveyor 
of lands, member prudential committee, clerk of the market, member 
jury of trials and constable. He was made freeman 23 May, 1666, and 
was one of the signers to petition to have Oyster River made a separate 


township in 1669. He was among those who were declared dispossessed 
of their property by Cranfield in 1684 and signed the petition to James 
II repudiating Cranfield in 1685. In the military organization of the 
province he was an ensign, and bore that title as early as April, 1662. 
He m. at Haverhill, 10 Dec, 1646, Jane, dau. of Rev. Joseph and Mary 
(Johnson) Peasley, and d. at Oyster River between 1 April, 1685, and 
25 May, 1686, the respective dates on which his will was made and 
proved. Children :

CoL. James' Davis (John^, Jcr?«es>) of Oyster River, Dover (now Durham) 
was b. at the garrison at Oyster River, 23 May, 1662. He m. 1 Oct., 
1688, Elizabeth, dau. of Capt. Thomas and EHzabeth (Thomas) Ches- 
ley of Oyster River, and d. at the garrison, which he inherited from his 
father, 8 Sept., 1749. His career was one of marked activity and lead- 
ership, and shows him to have been a man of superior capabilities. 
He was prominent in both military and civil life. He received 
numerous grants of land in the territory now covered by Dover, Durham 
and Madbury, and in the later townships which were granted during 
the years 1722 to 1737, among which were Rochester, Barnstead, 
Canterbury and Bow. In C. he received, in the first division of land. 
No. 199 of the forty acre lots, and one or more of the 100 acre lots in the 
same division. All of his C. holdings at the time of his death were 
willed to his daughter, Elizabeth Hicks. Each of his five sons, James, 


Thomas, Samuel, Daniel and Ephraim, were among the grantees of C. 
in 1727, as were his brother, Sergeant Joseph Davis, and the latter's 
son Joseph, and Jabez and (probably) James 3d, sons of his brother 
Moses Davis, who was killed by the Indians in 1724. None of the above, 
however, settled in C, but either disposed of their rights to others or 
deeded or willed them to their children and grandchildren. Col. Davis' 
wife, Elizabeth, was b. at Oyster River in 1669, and d. before 1648. 
Both were members of the Oyster River church prior to 1723, when on

24 Nov., 1723. Children b. in the garrison at Oyster River:

8. Levis Dow Jr., {Levv, Jonathan^) b. 15 Dec, 1803, in New Hampton; m. 

1832, Hannah Goss, dau. of Dea. Nathaniel Drake and granddaughter 
of Abraham Drake, who settled in New Hampton in 1777. Abraham 
was a descendant of Robert, who came to Hampton about 1630. The 
Drake family is of great antiquity.* "Soon after the conquest of Wes- 
sex by the Romans a family or clan called Drago, or Draco, appears to 
have taken possession of an old Roman and British encampment in 
what is now the manor of Musbury, Axminster, Devon County, Eng., 
which subsequently became known as Mount Drake. Of this family 
was Sir Francis, the celebrated navigator, as was also John Drake of 
the Council of Plymouth, one of the original company established by 
King James in 1606 for the settling New England, several of whose 
sons came to Boston in 1630, and who finally settled in Windsor. 
Robert had two sons and one daughter who settled in Hampton. 
P'rom these brothers are descended all of the name in New England. 
Robert Drake was among the first who, to avoid persecution, fled to 
New England." There is a tradition that the Drakes who settled 
in Hampton were in some way related to Sir Francis, which is strength- 
ened by the record.

Prepared by George R. Foster of Milford, Mass. 

In giving the genealogy of the Fosters of Canterbury, it will be observed 
that the arrangement of given names in parenthesis traces each family back 
to Capt. Asa Foster of Andover, Mass. The reason for this is to show that 
they all were descendants from the same ancestor, and while it is quite prob- 
able that Capt. Foster never was a resident of Canterbury, yet the fact that 
all of his sons (Asa, Abiel, Daniel, David and Jonathan) and two of his daugh- 
ters permanently located here, makes it seem proper to choose him as a start- 
ing point for genealogical purposes. 

Capt. Asa Foster was the fourth generation from Reginald Foster of Ips- 
wich, Mass. (William^, William-, Reginald^). Frederick Clifton Pierce of 
Chicago, in his genealogy of the American Fosters, states that Reginald Foster 
was b. in Brunton (others say Exeter), England, about 1595, and was a de- 
scendant of an ancient and respectable family of that section, which was iden- 
tified with those families in the northern counties of England, which were 
known by the name of Forster, and had distinguished themselves in their suc- 
cessful achievements against their Scottish foes, and are mentioned in the 
"Lay of the Last Minstrel" and "Marmion."

of Acre in 1191, for which he was granted right to bear a chevron vert on his

Reginald Foster came to America in one of the vessels embargoed by King 
Charles I, accompanied by his wife, Judith, five sons and two daughters, and 
settled in Ipswich, Mass., about the year 1638, and was one of the earliest 
inhabitants of that town. His English ancestry, beginning with his father, 
was as follows: Thomas, Cuthbert, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir Thom- 
as, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir William, Sir Richard, Sir Reginald, 
Sir Alfred, Sir Randolph, Sir John, Sir Wilham, Sir Reginald, Sir Hugo, 
and Sir Richard. A sister of Sir Richard, named Matilda or Maude, was the 
wife of William I, the Conqueror, Eng of England. From Sir Richard For- 
ester sprung the Blake Foresters of Ashfield and Knockmoy Abbey, County 
of Galway, and Inchorey Castle, County of Clare; also the Foresters of Ether- 
ston and Bamborough Castle in Northumberland, who are so vividly de- 
scribed in the historical novel, "Dorothy Forster, " by Sir Walter Besant, the 
celebrated English novelist.* 

Reginald Foster d. in 1681, at over eighty years of age. His will was proved 
June 9, 1681. His children were: Mary, Sarah, Abraham, Isaac, William, 
Jacob and Reginald, all of whom were born in England between 1618 and 1636. 
Each of the children had families of from nine to fourteen children, many of 
whom settled in Ipswich, Boxford, Andover and vicinity towns of Mass. It 
is, therefore, evident that Reginald Foster has a numerous posterity widely 
scattered. Many have attained national distinction, among them having 
been U. S. Senator Lafayette Sabine Foster of Conn, and U. S. Senator Addi- 
son G. Foster of Wash. 

The following pages are devoted to Capt. Asa Foster and his descendants 
through his five sons, as far as has been possible to trace them. The figures 
against each name in parenthesis denotes the generation removed from Regi- 
nald Foster, Capt. Asa" being the fourth, and are so noted throughout the fol- 
lowing pages. Reginald's son, WiUiam^, was a resident of Ipswich and Box- 
ford, Mass. His grandson, Wilham', was a resident of Boxford and Andover,

*Lack of space prevents giving a full account of Reginald Foster or of his 
descendants, except of those who lived in C. F. C. Pierce in his Genealogy 
of the Fosters devotes several pages to his life in Ipswich, Mass., and states 
that he was an active citizen of that town. Included in this account is a copy 
of the inventory of his estate showing valuation of £744 16s. and also a copy 
of his will dated April 30, 1680. Other books giving an account of Reginald 
Foster and his descendants were published by Edward Jacob Forster, M. D., 
of Boston in 1876 and by Perley Derby of Salem, Mass., in 1872. The facts 
for these publications by Dr. Forster and Derby were probably taken largely 
from the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. I, page 352, 
and Vol. XXX, page 83, and possibly from other sections of the Register. 


Ammi Rohammie Rogers of Ispwich, Mass. In 1758 he was commis- 
sioned by Thomas Pownall, Capt. Gen. and Vice-Admiral of Mass. 
Province, as captain in Col. Ebenezer Nichols' regiment, raised for the 
invasion of Canada. This commission was signed by Col. Ebenezer 
Nichols and Gen. Thomas Gage. His son Daniel, who later settled in 
C, was in this company. Oct. 21, 1765, the citizens of Andover, Mass., 
voted to select a committee to draw up instructions to the representa- 
tive of the town at the General Court of the Pro\'ince in relation to 
opposing the arbitrary measures of the British government. Capt. 
Asa Foster was one of this committee. Again in 1768 he was one of a 
committee to prepare a report to submit to the town to consider some 
measures that may tend to encourage prudence and manufactures 
and to lessen the use of superfluities in the town. In 1776 he was 
elected one of the committee on correspondence, inspection and safety. 
He left an estate valued at £830 16s. 7d. He was a large owner of 
land in C, besides large tracts of upland, meadow, etc., in Andover, 
Mass. His land in C. was purchased by his sons, Dea. Asa and Capt. 
Jonathan Foster, and was situated in Hackleborough school district. 
He lived through the Revolution, giving his encouragement and 
influence in various ways. His first wife, Elizabeth Abbott, was a dau. 
of Dea. John and Elizabeth Harnden. Her young brother, Abiel, a 
man of promise, d. after he graduated from Harvard, but his mantle 
fell upon his namesake, Abiel Foster, son of Capt. Asa. The latter d.

There is a recorded deed in the provincial records at Concord, dated 
2 Dec, 1731, which shows that John Foster of Andover, Mass., bought 
of Benj. York and Peter Mason two rights of land in C. While this 
John Foster was probably a brother to Capt. Asa Foster, it is not pre- 
sumed that he or his land purchase in 1731 were in any way influential 
towards the immigration of the Fosters into C. about thirty years later. 
Capt. Asa Foster may have learned of the C. settlement on the expe- 
dition to Canada. It is not known which two of the three daus. accom- 
panied their brothers to C, but it is evident that Sarah Foster was one 
of the two, because of the fact that her husband, Timothy Bradley, was 
a resident of Concord.

20. Stephen Symonds' Foster {Asa^, Asa\ Asa*) b. in C, 17 Nov., 1809; m. in 

Penn., 21 Dec, 1845, Abby Kelley, b. 15 Jan., 1811, d. 14 Jan., 1887. 
He d. in Worcester, Mass., 8 Sept., 1881. Graduating from Dartmouth 
in 1838, he studied theology, but, because he was precluded from advo- 
cating Abolition in the pulpit, he left that profession in order to engage 
in the anti-slavery contest. He is described in one of Lowell's anti- 
slavery poems as 


"A kind of maddened John the Baptist 
To whom the hardest word comes aptest, 
Who, struck by stone or brick, ill-starred. 
Hurls back an epithet as hard. 
Which, deadlier than stone or brick, 
Has a propensity to stick." 

While in the theological seminary he induced some of his classmates 
to join with him to protest against the war-like preparations then going 
on, arising from the dispute with Great Britain over the northwestern 
boundary. The refusal of the faculty to allow the chapel to be used for 
such a meeting made him dissatisfied with the churches, because they 
countenanced war; and when he became an anti-slavery agitator he 
directed his attacks chiefly against the church and clergy, because they 
upheld slavery. ^Since the people of the New England towns could not 
be induced to attend anti-slavery lectures, he was accustomed to attend 
church meetings and claim there a hearing for the enslaved, and was 
often expelled by force, and several times imprisoned for disturbing pub- 
lic worship. He published articles in periodicals on the slavery ques- 
tion, and in 1843 a pamphlet, entitled "The Brotherhood of Thieves; 
a True Picture of the American Church and Clergy," in the form of a 
letter to Nathaniel Barney. 

His wife, Abby Kelley, reformer, was b. in Pelham, Mass., and d. in 
Worcester, Mass. Her parents, who were descendants of Irish Quakers, 
removed to Worcester while she was an infant. She taught school for 
several years in Worcester and Millbury, and in a Friends' School in 
Lynn, Mass. She resigned her post about 1837, and began lecturing as 
an anti-slavery advocate, being the first woman to address mixed audi- 
ences in favor of Abolition. Though sincere in her convictions and 
womanly in her delivery, she suffered many indignities in Connecticut 
during her lectures. About 1850 Mrs. Foster became actively interested 
in woman suffrage and proliibition. While speaking in Pennsylvania she 
met Stephen S. Foster, whom she married in New Brighton, Penn. The 
two continued their public addresses and, on one tour in Ohio, Mrs. 
Foster spoke every day for six weeks. They settled on a farm near 
Worcester, which was their home up to the time of Mr. Foster's death. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Foster refused to pay taxes on their home estate, 
because the wife was not permitted to vote, and this resolution was 
followed by the sale of the home for two consecutive years, but it was 
bought in by their friends, and finally redeemed by Mr. Foster. Mrs. 
Foster's last public work was an effort made to raise funds to defray 
the expenses of securing the adoption of the Fifteenth amendment in 
the doubtful states. In June, 1886, she attended an anti-slavery recep- 
tion in Boston. The day preceding her fatal illness she finished a sketch 
of her husband's life. James Russell Lowell pays her his tribute: 

"A Judith, there, turned Quakeress, 
Sits Abby, in her modest dress. 
No nobler gift of heart or brain. 
No life more white from spot or stain, 
Was e'er on Freedom's altar laid. 
Than hers — the simple Quaker maid." 


Mr. and Mrs. Foster had one child: i. Alia Wright^, b. 19 May, 1847; 
unm. Resides in Roxbury, Mass. Is a teacher. She was graduated 
from Vassar in 1872. Post-graduate Cornell in 1874.

sergeant of his company. Next year he was promoted to second lieut- 
enant. At the Battle of Stone River he received a bullet wound in the 
leg, and was laid up until the following spring. Rejoining his regiment 


he was made first lieutenant, and in the fighting about Chattanooga the 
command of Company B devolved upon him. In the Battle of Lookout 
Mountain he had an ankle badly bruised by another bullet. In the 
autumn of 1864 he reenlisted as a veteran, being made a member of 
the 26th Ohio Vet. Vol. Inf. At the battle of Kenesaw Mountain a 
bullet cut a gash in the side of his neck, and at the Battle of Franklin,

dier and making him an invalid for life. Nine days following he was 
commissioned a captain by the governor of Ohio, but was never mus- 
tered. While lying in the hospital both his limbs were drawn up, and 
became stiffened in that position, where they remained until his death. 
He was discharged on account of disability 15 May, 186.5. When he 
was finally recovered sufficiently to be moved to the North, he was taken 
by easy stages to C. His wound did not heal until three years after

rill, of C, to whom he gave the credit of saving his life. In spite of his 
afflictions Mr. Foster continued to teach classics and write for the press.

Later, however, he served for a short time as a nurse in an army hos- 
pital, leaving the service only a few days before it was captured by the 
rebels. He was very successful in his farming pursuits, and produced 
some excellent specimens of blooded horses, being awarded first premium

The Gibson* family is said to be of English origin. Two brothers, James and 
John, when coming to this country, are said to have lost their father on the 
passage. A legend exists that one of these brothers m. the dau. of a nobleman, 
against the will of her parents, and that he was the father of Jeremiah Gibson, 
an early settler of C. The name appears as "Gipson" on a petition in 1768, 
which was signed by the oldest of the five brothers, who early gained possession 
of Lot No. 58, Second Division, Sanbornton, on which Union Bridge village 
now stands, and gave their original name, Gibson, to the falls below the bridge. 
Only the two oldest and youngest of these brothers can be traced to any 
extent. It is certain that their father did not settle in Sanbornton, though 
supposed at first to have been the "John" of 1768. Perhaps he was the "Jere- 
miah" of C. The five brothers were John, James, Jeremiah, Enoch, Thomas. 

Jeremiah, who lived near the south end of the lot where now Capt. Jacob 
Sanborn (Lakeman place in Sanbornton) lives, m. Eleanor Forrest and re- 
moved with four children quite early to Canada. Children b. but not m. in 
Sanbornton, were Robert, John, Judith, Comfort. 

Enoch was in Sanbornton with his brothers; unm., and also went to Canada. 

Thomas, the youngest, and the last who came to this region, located directly 
across the river on the Gilmanton side, at Union Bridge, having previously 
settled in C, and m. Jemima, dau. of Capt. James Shepard. Children: Abi- 
gail and Martha, both d. young; Enoch, Polly, Nancy, Elsey, Naaman, 
Jemima, Naomi, Royal. 

1. Jamesi Gibson settled in C, 1748. 

2. James2 Gibson (Jaines^) joined with Jeremiah Gibson, John Willey, hus- 

band of Eleanor Gibson, and James Gibson, Jr., in settling among them- 
selves the estate of their "honored father and grandfather, James Gibson 
of C, deceased." Date of this paper is 17 Feb., 1798. Memorandum 
on back of another deed states that James Gibson d. 26 Feb., 1796. 
This may be the James Gibson who is found as a settler in C, in 1748. 
Mary Gibson d. 17 Feb., 1792.

Among the early land owners and settlers of C. were William Glines, Jr., 
and John Glines. Whether they were brothers or any way related is not 
known. The Provincial Registry of Deeds shows that John was in C. as early 
as 1736* and William in 1761. t A William Glines, Jr., of Dover, was one of 
the proprietors and drew home lot No. 84, which he sold in 1731 to Samuel 
Adams of Dover.J A William Glines, Jr., was elected tithingman of C. in 1750 
and constable in 1752. In 1731 Wilham Glines, Sr., and William Glines, Jr. 
sold land in Dover.^ 20 Sept., 1725, William and Ehzabeth Glines conveyed 
land in Dover, "lying between Oyster River and Lampreel River. "II If Wil- 
ham Glines, Jr., the proprietor, settled in C, the genealogy is apparently as 

1. William Glines who m. Elizabeth . 

2. William Glines, Jr., who m. Hannahl^ 

From the latter descended Wilham Glines, 3d, and William Glines, 4th, who 
are found on the tax lists of C. and Northfield. As John Glines has a son 
William who resided in C, it is sometimes difficult to differentiate the various 
William Glines of C, owing to the fact that there is meager record of the early 
births, marriages and deaths of this family. 

A John Glines of Dover was one of the proprietors of C. He m. Mary 
Bassford, 27 Nov., 1728** In 1731 he sold "one certain tract or parcel of 
land given me by the governor and council in the town of C.ft John Glines 
of Durham bought, in 1733, home lot No. 29 and lot 51 "in the second divi- 
sion of rights, "tt The home lot, except the intervale, he sold as a resident of 
C. in 1739 to James Lindsey.§§ The same date he bought of James Lindsey 
home lot No. 63, and here he made his home until his death. Illl In 1753 he

was dated 16 March, 1757, and admitted to probate 3 Aug., 1757. It was 
witnessed by John Gibson, Richard Blanchard and James Scales, and is as

In the name of God amen This 16 day of March 1757 I John GUnes of 
Canterbury in the province of N. H. in N. E. husbandman, having inhsted 
myself in his Majesty's service to go against his Majesty's enemies & not

tahty of my body that it is appointed unto all men once to dye, being now in 
perfect mind and memory, Thanks be given to God for it, I do make and ordain 
this my last will and testament, that is to say, Principally and first of all I 
recommend my soul into the hands of God who gave it & my body I recommend 
to the earth to be buried in decent Christian burial at the discretion of my 
executors (if the circumstances of my death will admit it) nothing doubting 
but at the general resurrection I shall receive the same again by the mighty 
power of God. And as touching such worldly estate wherewith it has pleased 
God to bless me in this hfe I give demise and dispose of the same in the follow- 
ing manner & form. 

I give and bequeath to my dearly beloved wife, Mary, (if she outlives me) 
the use and improvement of all my home place so long as she shall be and re-

which he has already had) all that I own in the intervale which lies between 
Canterbury to^vTiship and Merrimack river and also all that I own in the Pine 
Plain which lies between the said intervale & the line of Canterbury township 
and also one half of an hundred acre lot in Contoocook which I bought of 
Thomas Eastman. 

Item To my beloved sons William & Richard I give and bequeath all of my 
home place when their mother is done with it to be equally divided between 
them except that they are to pay out of it £200 old tenor to their youngest 
sisters, Mary & Elizabeth when they shall come to the age of 21 years. 

Item To my beloved son James I give & bequeath one half of my hundred 
acre lot at Contoocook above mentioned. 

Item I give & bequeath to my beloved son Nathaniel all the present 
undivided land belonging to the original right of Samuel Smith Jr. except 
that he is to pay out of it £40 old tenor to his two younger sisters Mary & 
Elizabeth when they shall come to the age of 21 years as aforesaid. 

Item To my beloved daughters Mary & Elizabeth I give & bequeath to 
each of them £120 in bills of credit of the old tenor to be paid to them by their 
brothers William, Richard & Nathaniel when they the said daughters come 
to the age of 21 years. That is by William & Richard to each of them 100 & 
by Nathaniel to each of them 20. 

Moreover my original right (what is still my owm of it) I give and bequeath 
to be equally divided among all my children. And also what stock of creatures 
I leave at my decease to be divided in like manner — My tools for farming I 
bequeath to be equally divided among my sons & household stuff to be equally 
divided among my daughters when their mother has done with them all.

Lastly I do constitute and ordain my beloved sons William & Richard to be 
jointly the executors of this my last will & testament ratifying and confirming 
this & no other to be my last will & testament. In witness whereof 1 have 
hereunto set my hand and seal the day & year above written. 


John X Glines 


There is little information aside from this will to be obtained of the imme- 
diate descendants of John Glines. Such evidence as there is will be found in 
the inventories and tax lists of C. and in the records of conveyances of prop- 
erty.* It is probable that all of his children are named by the testator 
in his will and that they are mentioned in the order of their ages, beginning 
with the eldest. The date of birth of only one is known, Nathaniel, who 
according to the records of the town was b. in Dec, 1744. Such information 
as is available from the sources named is here given.

Glines appears as a resident of Northfield. In a deed dated 26 

June, 1762, John and Abigail Glines convey home lot 63, the 

homestead of his father, to Samuel Moore. §

Glover is an ancient name in England, and from what has been gathered of 
its origin is indisputably Saxon. In some of the oldest counties, as Warwick- 
shire and Kent, it was, at a very ancient date, written Golofre, then Glove, 
and in the middle of the fourteenth century it was written as it now is, Glover. 
Families of Glover of the Christian names of William and John were recorded 
in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, and Warwickshire about the middle of the 
fourteenth century. A William Glover had a coat of arms granted him in 
1602. It is said to be the same which Fuller finds recorded in the "Worthies 
of Middlesex," granted to William Glover, sheriff, at an earlier date. The 
Arms granted to William Glover of London, " Arg. a Chev. Erminie betwixt 
three cross, Crosslets" were bestowed by Queen Elizabeth one year before his 
death. He was buried in London, Colman Street ward. A fair monument in 
Chancel is erected to his memory. 

The names of John, William, Robert, Thomas, Richard and Henry are 
among the earliest Christian names of Glover that have been noticed by writers. 
These names have been perpetuated and have descended, like their estates, 
through many generations, both in Old and New England. Many of them 
settled in Dorchester and some are buried there, where the inscriptions on the 
old headstones are still to be seen. Many of them were soldiers, some of them 
were stationed at Castle WilHam, Boston harbor, from 1741 to 1753. Several 
of them served in the French and Indian war, and many of them in the Rev- 
olutionary war. Three of them in the War of 1812 and a large number of 
them served in the Civil war. Many of the Glovers were college graduates 
and became physicians, lawyers, clergymen and merchants.

The Harpers, who were Scotch Irish, came to this country from the north 
of Ireland in the latter part of the seventeenth or the beginning of the eigh- 
teenth century. Of the three brothers who were emigrants, one went South, 
as tradition says, and settled in the Carohnas, from whom are descended the 
Harpers of that section. It is supposed that Gen. Goodloe Harper of Balti- 
more and Chancellor Harper of S. C. were descendants of this branch. An- 
other brother settled in N. Y., from whom the Harpers of that state and 
Penn. are supposed to have descended. The third brother, as appears from 
an old family record, was a weaver by trade and settled in Newbury, Mass. 
He was the ancestor of the Harpers of N. E. John A. Harper of Meredith, 
who was a member of Congress in 1812, was of this branch in the fourth gen- 
eration. His father, William Harper, was a magistrate for some thirty years 
and represented Sanbornton in the legislature for a number of sessions.

of that country. She was b. in Poplin (Fremont), in 1756. They 
moved to Sanbornton. At the time of Burgoyne's invasion, Mr. 
Harper left his wife and children and joined Gen. Stark's com- 
mand. He was in the Battle of Bennington and served tlirough the 
campaign. Soon after the close of the Revolutionary War he removed 
to Brentwood, where he resided until March, 1787, when he settled in 
Limerick, Me. Here he resided until his death in 1834, at the age of 
87. His wife d. six years later at the age of 93. Their farm is still in

Elder John Harriman was b. in Plaistow, 11 April, 1784. The name 
Harriman was among those of the first settlers before 1740. Elder Harriman 
d. in Newton, 8 April, 1866. He m. Rachel Gile also of Plaistow in 1804. Her 
father was Major Ezekiel Gile, an officer of the Revolutionary war. 

Elder Harriman was ordained as an Evangelist April, 1812; moved to C. 
in 1829, where he was soon engaged in a very extensive revival, and later be- 
came pastor of the F. W. Baptist Church, remaining many years in the town. 
He represented C. in the legislature two terms. Later he chose a home in 
Newton where he spent the remainder of his life. 

The first Harriman in this country was Leonard of Rowley, Mass., who in 
1639 with Rev. Ezekiel Rogers and twenty other families fled from ecclesias- 
tical oppression in Yorkshire County, Eng., and came to N. E. He was then 
a very young man. Settling in Rowley, he was admitted freeman in 1647. 
He and his wife, Margaret, had three sons and three daus., John, the eldest 
son, b. in 1650, was sacrificed in King Philip's war. Two sons remained, 
Matthew and Jonathan, the one b. in 1652, the other in 1657. Matthew, at 
the age of 21, settled in Haverhill, Mass. The same year he m. Elizabeth 
Swan of that town. Their home was on Fishery River, a place now in the com- 
pact part of the city. They had a large family. 

Leonard Harriman, in his will in 1691, says, "To my oldest son, Matthew 
Harriman, I give and bequeath all my lands and meadows in ye bounds of 
Haverhill," and "to his son Matthew — my grandchild, I give my arms & 
ammunition. " He gave Jonathan, his youngest son, his real estate in Tiowley . 

The first Matthew Harriman had six sons and six daus. The first child, 
Matthew, Jr., m. in 1700, Martha Page; they had six sons and three daus. 
The eldest son, Joseph, m. in 1723, Lydia Eaton, and had Abigail, Reuben and 
Joseph. This last Joseph had two sons, David and Aseph. David had four 
sons, Joseph, Israel, John and David, the two last the somewhat noted Evan- 
gelists. They are then the 7th generation of Harrimans in this country. 

Elder Harriman and his wife had six children, John, Caroline, Elizabeth, 
Sarah, Corydon and Hadassah. 

Hadassah m. Andrew Bartlett Taylor. (See Taylor Gen.)

1. PniLipi HuNTOON, the immigrant ancestor, b. about 1664, m. first, about 

1687, Betsey Hall of Exeter; m. second, Hannah , who d. 22 

Dec, 1741. The first mention found of Philip is liis name attached to 
"The humble Addresse of the inhabitants and train solders of ye 
Province of New Hampshire (Feb. 20, 1689.) to the Honat'e the Gov- 
ernour and Council of their Maj" Colony of the Matthathuset in New 
England," setting forth that they were destitute of power sufficient to 


put themselves in a capacity of defence against the common enemy, 
and prajang that protection may be afforded them as formerly. On 
21 Feb., 1697, the town of Exeter granted to "phillip huntune thirty 
acres of land joining to a piece of swamp, had formerly. " Another grant 
is found on 6 March, 1699. On 12 June, 1702, Philip deeded a portion 
of this land. He left Exeter about 1703 and settled in Kingston, where, 
in 1707, he with others deserted the town on account of danger from the 
Indians. The other inhabitants being much weakened thereby it was 
ordered: "That Mr, Secretary Story write to the Captains of Exeter 
and Hampton, that they forthwith direct the persons aforesaid to 
return to their former habitations in Kingstown for the strengthen- 
ing of the place against the common enemy, and in case they shall 
refuse to do so, the said captains are hereby ordered that when 
they send soldiers to her majesty's fort, William and Mary, that 
the above persons be the first that shall be sent there." They 
undoubtedly refused to return, and subsequent events proved 
that Philip, at least, had some cause for his fear. However, in 
1708 Philip was again at home in Kingston, for he deeds the 
land he bought of Lieut. John Faulsom on the north division 
of "Pickpocket Path." July 22, 1710, while Philip and eldest son, 
Samuel, were ploughing not far from his house, they were surrounded 
by a band of Indians who fired upon them. Samuel fell mortally 
wounded. Philip and a neighbor were taken prisoners and suffered 
terrible cruelties. After long marches they reached Canada and were 
sold as prisoners of war to the French. They were informed if they 
would build a saw mill for the government and teach the French to saw 
lumber after the English method, they should have their freedom. 
They erected the mill, instructed the French and regained their freedom, 
although it is said the French never could make the mill run. This 
mill is said to have been the first for sawing lumber ever erected in 
Canada. Tradition says that Philip remained in Canada about two 
years. Philip Huntoon d. 10 May, 1752. Children:

Dec, 1786. Directly after their marriage, they started from Loudon 
on an ox sled loaded with their household goods and with a heifer tied 
behind the sled, for Stewartstown, where they settled. Mr. Jones built 
the first frame house in that town. Religious services were often held

and his family came to Northfield. He was employed by the Canterbury 
Shakers and by farmers in surrounding towns. He d. in C. in 1836.

Timothy Gleason, the father of Sophia (Gleason) Jones, was b. 22 
March, 1748, and is said to have come to this country about 1760. It 
is thought that he was of Irish descent, and that he came here from 
Scotland. He was famiharly styled "Master" Gleason, and he was one 
of the school masters who exerted a powerful influence upon education 
in N. H. in its early history. "Master" Gleason taught in the schools 
of Loudon, C. and Northfield, wliich often numbered sixty or eighty 
pupils; he also taught private classes. Mrs. Charlotte Allison Butler, 
mother of Gen. Benjamin F. Butler, was one of his pupils and attrib- 
uted her fondness for letter writing to the instruction of "Master" 
Gleason. He was a fine penman, and was often employed by the select- 
men to record the taxes and town proceedings. Of large stature, he 
is remembered as always wearing the Colonial dress. He served in the 
Revolutionary war. He m. first, Anne Evans of Barrington, b. 13

Jarvis was the daughter of Benjamin and d. 23 Sept., 1903. Walter 
A. has resided in C. since 1897. 


The name Jones is of Welsh origin and derived from the Christian name 
John. This branch of the large family of Joneses in the U. S. settled, no doubt, 
in what is now known as Rockingham County. 

1. William Jones was a resident of Cambridge, Mass., in 1635, and sold out

that town after 1648.

It is difficult to trace the Keysar families with certainty on account of the 
several spellings of the name, Keysar, Kezer, Kezar, Keasor, Keazor, Kizar. 
The two spellings, Edmond, Edmund, also cause confusion. These differences 
make some of the dates given here questionable. 

Dr. Ebenezer Kezer, who was a Revolutionary soldier, had sons, Edmond, 

John and George. 
Edmond had children, Joseph, John, Jessie, Benjamin, Mary, Betsey, Fhebe, 

Susan, Miles, Edmond, Rhoda and Olive.

1. RiCHAHDi Kimball was probably the ancestor of most of the numerous 

famihes of the name of Kimball in New England. On 10 April, 
1634, O. S., at the age of 39, he embarked at Ipswich, in the county of 
Suffolk, Old Eng., in the ship, Elisabeth, William Andrews, master, for 
Massachusetts, and landed at Ipswich. He first settled in Watertown, 
of which he was a proprietor, in 1636-37; was admitted a freeman 6 
May, 1635. 

He soon removed from Watertown to Ipswich, and is first known as an 
inhabitant of that place, 23 Feb., 1637-38, when he was granted by 
the town "a house lott next adjoining to goodman Simons at the west 
end of ye towTi"; also granted him the same day "40 acres Beyond the 
North River near the land of Robert Scott." In 1639-40, he had "lib-

Francis Lyford, who is found in Boston in 1667, is the ancestor of the 
Lyfords of C. and of nearly all of that name in this country. At this date he 
is a witness to a conveyance of land. (Suffolk Deeds, Liber V, pages 378-379.) 
Under date of 20 Sept., 1670, "John Chandler for and in consideration of 
eighteen pounds to me in hand paid by ffrancis Lyford of Boston, marriner, " 
mortgages to the latter certain property in Roxbury. (Suffolk Deeds, Liber 
VI, pages 219-220.) In a deed acknowledged 9 July, 1672, is the following: 
"To All People to whome this writing or Deede shall come wee Thomas Smith 
of Boston in New England Builder & Elisabeth his wife send Greeting. Know 
yee that for & in consideracon of the Love we the saide Thomas Smith & 
Elisabeth doe beare unto our Sone in Law ffrancis Lyford of the same place 
Marriner . . . have granted . . . unto the said ffrancis Lyford 
. . . a piece or parcell of Land in length fourty foote or more or Less from 
the Seaward as far as the said Smith his Land reacheth being butted & bounded 
Easterly with the Salt Sea and fforthill & westerly partly with the dwelling 
house of him the saide Smith & partly with his Land &c." (Suffolk Deeds, 
Liber VI, pages 320-321.) 

Francis Lyford, after the death of his wife (perhaps in 1677), sold this land. 
In 1678 he and John Bradish "have libertie granted them to wharfe before 
theire house and land." (7th Report Boston Record Commissioners, page 
115.) Before 1683 Francis Lyford had removed to N. H., for in a deedf dated 
29 Oct., 1683, "ffrancis Lyford" of Exeter, mariner, bought of Robert Tufton 
Mason sixty acres of land in that town known as "Samuel Dudley's great 
pasture" and fifteen acres of marsh land adjoining; also "7 acres of Sheep 
pasture on side of Samuel Dudley deceased his house." 

In a hst of persons in Exeter who had received grants of land from the town 
under date of 28 March, 1698, appears Francis Lyford as having 200 acres. 

* The greater part of the genealogy of the Lyford family is taken from a 
pamphlet prepared by William Lewis Welch of the seventh generation and pub- 
lished for the Essex Institute at Salem, Mass. It is entitled, "Francis Lyford 
of Boston and Exeter and some of his descendants."

He served as selectman of Exeter in 1689 and 1690. During King William's 
war, Francis Lyford served from 6 Feb., 1696, to 5 March, 1696, in Capt. 
Kinsley Hall's Co. of militia in Exeter. He appears to have followed the 
sea after removing to N. H., probably engaging in the coasting trade from 
Portsmouth to Boston, as is shown by the following return.*

Compiled by Harriet Louise Matthews of Lynn, Mass. 

1. Francis' Matthews, the immigrant ancestor of the family in C. first 
appears on the list of men who came to this country in the Mason 
colony, 1631. His name is also found among the signers of the "Exeter 
Combination" in 1639. The location of the man is found by a grant 
of land, 1 Oct., 1637, when Vines, Josselyn and Warnerton, as agents 
of the Laconia Association granted a lease of a part of "the Great 
Island," the present town of Newcastle, to "ffrancis Matthews for 
one thousand years." This was reconveyed to the wid. in the same 
name in 1656 and 1664. In addition to land on the Great Island, Fran- 
cis bought 16 June, 1640, of William Beard, a house and land at Oyster 
River, and 7 July, 1644, Wilham Hilton conveyed to him 88 acres of 
land at Oyster River. The location of the Oyster River property is 
given in "Historical Memoranda" published in a Dover newspaper 
about 1851: "The site of the original settlement at Oyster River is 
very beautiful, it is just at the head of the main branch of the Piscat- 
aqua, commands a fine view of the confluence of Great Bay, Bellamy 
Bank, and Salmon Falls Rivers, and evidences the good taste of the 
senior Frances Matthews." To this was added a large tract of "salt 
marsh" and other grants, until he became the owner of a large part of 
the north shore of the Great Bay. Francis also held property on 
"Smutty Nose," Isle of Shoals, where at that time was a large colony 
of fishermen. 

The parentage of Francis Matthews, dates of birth and marriage 
record have not been proved, but recently there has been found on the 
parish records of Ottery St. Mary, Devon, Eng., under date of 28 Nov., 
1622, the marriage of one "ffrancis Matthew and Thomasine Chanon." 
From the fact that the men of N. H. in the 1631 colony were largely 
gathered from Devon and Cornwall, and because Ottery St. Mary is 
near to Plymouth and Exeter, it seems probably that this "ffrancis" 
and the immigrants "ffrancis and Thomasine" may have been the same. 
All genealogical records of N. H. have hitherto stated that Francis and 
Thomasine Matthews must have been m. in England before 1630. 
Savage and other writers have given but three children to the N. H. 
family, but if it is proved that the Ottery St. Mary "ffrancis and 


Thomasine" came to America in the Mason colony, two more daus. 
must be added to the family, for the parish records at Ottery St. Mary 
bear the names of Elizabeth Matthew, bapt. 23 Dec, 1623; ffrances 
Matthew, bapt. 20 Feb., 1625, both daus. of fifrancis Matthew. (No 
records of this family later than 1625.) The name of Matthews comes 
from Wales, the first of the name. Sir Matthew-ap-Jevan, feudal baron 
of Llandaff, whose pedigree can be traced back to Cunedda, the Cambro- 
British prince, and like all Welsh pedigrees runs back to remote antiq- 
uity. Children given to Francis and Thomasine Matthews by Savage: 

i. Walters 
2. ii. Benjamin. 
ill. Martha. 

No dates of birth have been found, the name of the dau. is given in 
the will of Walter. Thomasine, wid. of Francis, gave to her grandson, 
Will Brookin, son of Godfrie Brookin, certain property, deed dated 
16 Oct., 1689. The name of Francis Matthews appears upon the inven- 
tory of Nicholas Brown, 10 May, 1648, where he makes his mark "F. 
M." He probably d. soon after, for on the first extant tax list of Dover, 
1648, the name of Thomasine Matthews, wid. of Francis, is given with 
four others as pajong the largest taxes. Thomasine d. about 1704, 
when the estate was settled, 56 years after the death of Francis. Walter 
Matthews' will dated 15 April, 1678, proved 25 June, 1678, mentions 
son, Samuel, daus., Susanna Young, Mary Senter, Matthews Young, 
Thomas Snell, son of "my sister Martha Browne." 

2. Benjamin^ Matthews (Francis^) was, according to Savage, a freeman in 

1669, one of those named to meet and choose a committee to attend 
the' council at Portsmouth, 16 March, 1679. Date of birth and mar- 
riage not found on Durham records, but it is supposed that he was m. as 
early as 1669. By the will of one Thomas Footman, made 14 Aug., 
1667, he mentions "my brother Bengemin Mathews." This has led 
■early N. H. genealogists to state that Footman married a dau. of Francis 
Matthews. Catharine Footman, wid. of Thomas, m. second, William 
Durgin before 25 June, 1672. Only one child has been found recorded 
to Benjamin Matthews, Francis, who administered on his father's 
estate, 9 March, 1709-10. The Dorothy Matthews, whose name appears 
on N. H. records, 27 Sept., 1683, may have been the wife of Benjamin 
Matthews. 3. i. Francis'. 

3. Capt. Francis^ Matthews (Benjamin', Francis^) proprietor of C, 

b. in Dover (Oyster River parish) as early as 1670; m. in Dover, 23 
Feb., 1691-92, Ruth, dau. of Abraham Bennett of Dover. Francis 
became a man of considerable civic and military importance in Dover 
and Durham; he represented the town of Durham in the Provincial 
government for five years; held various town offices, selectman, 1707- 
20; town clerk, 1732-36. The first meeting of the freeholders of 
Durham was called by Francis Matthews, Monday, 26 June, 1732, "at 
the meeting-house at the Falls." His military titles were Serg., 1707- 


10; Ensign, 1711-26; Capt., 1727-55. The Matthews garrison 
(otherwise Mathes) stood at Durham Point; it was no doubt built by 
Capt. Francis on land which has remained in the family since the origi- 
nal deed. Records of N. H. towns granted at this time, show the name 
of Francis Matthews as petitioner and proprietor in most of the towns 
north of Dover. The name appears with all the varieties of spelling 
common to the time, usually Mathes, although the marriage of Francis 
with Ruth Bermett is recorded as Matthews. The C. petition of 1727 
bears the name of Capt. Francis and of two of his sons, Francis, Jr., 
and Abraham. He must have d. about 1755, for on 16 June, 1755, 
transfers of property were made "lately belonging to our honored Father 
and Grandfather." Children: 

i. Benjamin*, m. 17 Dec, 1716, Abigail, dau. of Nathaniel and grand- 
dau. of Valentine Hill of Dover, hence the name of Valentine 
Mathes, which has appeared in every generation of this branch 
of the family down to the present time. This Benjamin may 
have been the one of that name who was "baptized Dec. 12, 
1724, died the same day, aged 31 years." 

4. ii. Francis, Jr., proprietor of C. 

iii. Abraham, proprietor of C, m. Phebe Davis, dau. of James Davis of 

4, Francis* Matthews {Francis^, Benjamin'^, Francis^) h. probably in Dur- 

ham; m. in Newington, 28 Nov., 1720, Lydia, dau. of Thomas Drew 
of Dover. Children: 

i. Ruths, b. 12 Oct., 1721; m. Joseph Sias of Durham and Lee; d. at 
the home of her dau., Lydia, wife of David Lawrence of Epping, 
10 Feb., 1801, aged 79. (Epping records.) Joseph Sias was 
one of the proprietors of C. 

ii. Gershom, b. in Durham; m. 22 June, 1757, Elizabeth Wheston, 
and settled in that part of C. now Loudon. Children, b. in C. 
and Loudon: i. Hannah, ii. John, b. 1771. iii. Joseph, iv. 
Francis, b. 1776. 

5. iii. Benjamin, b. about 1724. 

iv. Gideon, b. 8 Nov., 1728; m. first, 30 Jan., 1755, Anna, dau. of 
Nathaniel Randall of Lee; m. second, Anna, dau. of Benjamin 
and Abigail (Stevens) Whitcher of Nottingham, b. 10 May, 1748, 
d. 11 Nov., 1822. He d. 3 Jan., 1815. 

5. Benjamins Mathes {Francis*, Francis^, Benjamin^, Francis^), known on 

the records of Durham and Lee as Benjamin Mathes, Jr., was b. in 
Durham, about 1724. He m. in Newington, 20 June, 1745, Anna, 
dau. of Eleazer and Anna Coleman, b. in Newington, 29 May, 1726. 
Benjamin, with his brothers, received his share of the land of Francis, 
Sr., and Francis, Jr., and according to deeds at Exeter and Dover, 
disposed of his interests in Durham and Lee to his brother, Gideon, 
and sister, Ruth (Mathes) Sias. As early as 2 May, 1750, he is found 
among the grantees of New Durham. Whether this family remained 
in New Durham later than 1769, is unknown, but in 1777, 12 Jiine, 
Benjamin appears as one of the selectmen in AUenstown, where he 
signed a certificate for payment to a Revolutionary soldier. On 2 Dec, 
1790, Benjamin Mathes, Jr., of AUenstown, Ruth and Joseph Sias of 


Durham, Gershom Mathes of Loudon, sell to Gideon Mathes of Lee, 
their right and title to the farm of Gideon in Lee. Signed 2 Dec, by 
Ruth and Gershom; 30 Dec, by Benjamin. This is the last record of 
Benjamin that has been found. His name as "head of a family" does 
not appear in the 1790 census, recently published by the U. S. govern- 
ment. Because of this, it is surmised that he might at that time have 
been Uving with one of his children. The dates of birth of his children 
are not complete, and it is only from data gathered from his grand- 
children that all of their names are known. They are given below, 
but presumably not in order of birth. Children: 

i. Benjamin', said to have settled in New Sharon, Vt. ii. Lydia. 

iii. John, settled and d. in Northwood, about 1814, leaving sons, 

Joseph' and John. iv. Betsey, v. Joanna. 
6. vi. Elijah, b. 27 May, 1759 (probably in New Durham). 

vii. Thomas, b. 6 April, 1761; m. 30 June, 1788, Sally Weeks; settled 

in Deerfield, where he d. 26 Dec, 1833. 
viii. Joseph, m. in Winthrop, Me., about 1795, Meredith, dau. of Solo- 
mon and Hannah (Leonard) Esty of Winthrop, b. 10 Aug., 

1773. Child: Joseph', b. 29 Dec, 1796. 
ix. Daniel, b. 8 March, 1766; m. 23 Feb., 1796, Mary, dau. of Jede- 

diah and Sarah (Morrill) Prescott of Deerfield, b. 19 Feb., 1766. 

They settled in Searsmont, Me., where Daniel d. 4 March, 

1826. She d. at Liberty, Me., 1 April, 1857. 
X. Ruth. It may be that this Ruth was the one of that name who m. 

in C, Joseph Taylor, 25 July, 1781. 
xi. Jacob, b. 18 March, 1774; went to Me.; m. in Industry, 25 Feb. 

1803, Hannah, dau. of Zoe and Sally (Bettis) Withee. They 

lived for a time in Industry, but subsequently moved to St. 

Albans. They were the grandparents of the late Llewellyn 

Powers, governor of Maine, 1897-1901. 

6. Elijah^ Mathes {Benjamin^) b. 27 May, 1759, probably in New Durham; 
m. in Nottingham, 1 Oct., 1780, Mary, dau. of Joshua and Ann (Harvey) 
Stevens of Nottingham. It is a tradition that Elijah was either "bound 
out" to his Uncle and Aunt Sias, or that he went to live with them when 
he was quite young. At the time of his marriage, he was "of Lee," and 
it was while living there that he probably met his wife, Mary Stevens, 
familiarly called "Molly." She was descended on her father's side from 
John Stevens of Salisbury, b. 1611, and on her mother's side from James 
Harvey and WiUiam Maxwell, Scotch-Irish immigrants, who came to 
this country from Port Rush, Ireland; sailing 7 Aug., 1726, landed in 
Boston, 8 Oct., from thence they went to Haverhill, Derry and Notting- 
ham, where they settled. Soon after the marriage of Elijah and Mary 
(Stevens) Mathes, he purchased of John Bean, seven acres of land in 
C, lot No. 90. Later Elijah purchased of Josiah Dow 100 acres of 
land. Under date of 9 Dec, 1809, he bought of David Kent of C, lot 
92. From a manuscript sketch of this family written by Thomas Stev- 
ens Clough, a grandson of Elijah, the following is quoted: "Elijah 
Mathes late of C, at the age of 21, m. Mary Stevens. Soon after, 'they 
twain' settled in C, about one and one half miles westerly from Hill's 
Corner. . . . These parents resided in this one place together for 
73 years, and three days, when the tie was broken by the death of the 


wife and mother, 4 Oct., 1853, aged 90 years, 10 months and 19 days; 
22 Dec., 1853, the aged husband followed at the ripe age of 94 years, 
6 months and 25 days." 

Elijah and his wife are buried in the family burial lot on the farm in 
C, now owned by Olw^n W. Dow. Under date of 8 March, 1909, 
Mrs. Ella (Hills) Nelson, a descendant of Elijah, writes that "the old 
house is still standing, but used for storing farm tools and boiling sap. 
The big chimney built in the center of the house has been torn down 
to make room for the sap pan. The heavy timbers of the frame show 
the strength of this old house. The sweep is gone, but the well has 
never been filled." Children, b. in C. : 

7. i. Polly', b. 30 Jan., 1783. 

8. ii. Joshua Stevens, b 30 Oct., 1785. 

9. iii. Nancy, b. 23 May, 1787. 

iv. Betsey Harvey, b. 17 March, 1789; d. single, 14 May, 1878. She 
was the constant companion of her parents in their declining 
years. She was possessed of a remarkably lovable and win- 
ning character. She is buried in the family lot.

Joshua Stevens of Nottingham. 18 April, 1810, he, with Otis Young, 
bought of Oilman Clough, a lot of land in C. On 17 June, 1812, Joshua 
sold his share to Enoch Emery, and on 7 Dec, 1813, he bought twenty- 
nine acres of land which he sold 24 Sept., 1817, to Archelaus Moore. 
About this time, Joshua bought land in East Columbia, where he after- 
ward settled. Mr. Mathes was a respected citizen of Columbia, repre-

Prepared by Luther Morrill Cody of Canterbury. 

There are five lines of descendants from the sons of Ezekiel Morrill, the 
pioneer in C. The issue of Ws daus., where knowTi, appear in other genealo- 
gies. Owing to the number of descendants of some of these sons, they are 
grouped by families instead of by generations, the descendants of the first 
son, David, being traced to the present time before considering the line orig- 
inating with the second son. As the Morrills, whose ancestors originated in 
C, seldom intermarried, and are widely scattered, it is thought that the 
grouping by families will be more convenient and satisfactory to the hving 
descendants than to trace them by generations. 

Probably all the Morrills of N. E. and thousands more of N. E. ancestry, 
scattered through the U. S. are descended from Abraham Morrill, who came 
to America with his brother, Isaac, in 1632-33. The latter's name is on the 
register of the ship Lion arriving 6 Sept., 1632, but Abraham's does not 
appear. He is known, however, to have been in Cambridge, Mass., in 1632-33, 
where they both settled. In 1635, Abraham owned a house lot on what is

Tradition says that the first settler of the part of C. called "Palletborough" 
was Joseph Pallet. This district or borough was named for him and was 
called "Palletborough" as late as 1885, when the prefix Pallet was left ofif 
and the district was known as the "Borough." 

Joseph Pallet was said to be of Spanish descent and came to this country 
stowed away in the hold of a ship, which landed probably at Portsmouth. 
From thence he worked his way to Hampton and came up from there with 
the Sanborns and others who settled in C. in the late years of the eighteenth

1. According to tradition, William and Esther (Wood) Parkinson were 

natives of Scotland. They were kin to the Scotch Livingstons, who 
settled in N. Y. and N. J. In 1741, they were residents of London- 
derry, Ireland. In 1744, they came to Londonderry, and later they 
rem. to Princeton, N. J. 

2. Henrys Parkinson (William^) was b. in 1741, in Londonderry, Ireland, 

He rem. with his parents to Londonderry, in 1744; was a graduate of 
Princeton College in 1764, and is supposed to have been a teacher there 
for some time. Soon after the Battle of Lexington, he enlisted in Capt. 
■George Reid's Co. from Londonderry, which was embodied in the 
1st Reg. under Col. John Stark. Parkinson was chosen quartermaster 
at Stark's request. He continued with the regiment until shortly after 
Stark's resignation. In the spring of 1777, he contracted with parties 
to clear land for him in Francestown. The records of that town show 
that in 1779, he was chairman of its committee of safety, and that he was 
town clerk for three years ending March, 1781. He rem. to Pembroke 
in 1781, and his home was there for about three years. "He maintained 
B superior school at Concord from about 1784 to 1794." The remainder 


of his life was spent in C, where he owned a farm on which he built 
a house and a mill. His life work was teaching the classics and higher 
English. He m. Sept., 17, 1777 or 1778, Janet McCurdy of Londonderry. 
He d. 28 May, 1820, and he was buried in the cemetery at C. Center. 
His tombstone bears the following inscription: "Henry Parkinson, 
long distinguished as an excellent classical Preceptor," and an epitaph 
in Latin written by himself . It reads: "Hibernia me genuit. America 
nutrivit. Nassau Hall educavit; docui militavi atque manibus lab- 
oravi; sic cursum meum finivi, et nunc terra me occupat, et quiete in 
pulvere dormio, quasi in gremio materno meo; hue ades amice mi care; 
aspice et memento ut moriendum quoque certe sit tibi. Ergo vale, et 
cave." Rev. William Patrick in his historical sermon gives this Eng- 
lish rendering: "Ireland gave me birth; America nourished me; Nas- 
sau Hall educated me; I have taught; I have fought, and with my 
hands have I labored; I have finished my course; and now the earth 
contains me, and quietly do I sleep in the dust, as in my maternal 
bosom; come liither my dear friend; behold me, and remember that 
you also must certainly die. Therefore, farewell; consider! " Children:

The Patricks of C. are descended from Matthew Patrick who came to Amer- 
ica from the North of Ireland about 1724, and settled among a colony of 
Scotch-Irish in Western, now Warren, Mass. "The fact that his descend- 
ants," says a writer on Patrick genealogy, "married exclusively among known 
Scotch-Irish families, leads to the behef that he also was Scotch-Irish." The 
Patricks took a prominent part in the affairs of the town of Warren. Mat- 
thew's son John held the office of selectman ih 1754, '61, '71, '73, '75, '76; 


while his son Matthew, as Rep. to the General Court from the town of Warren, 
voted the Federal Constitution.

A much respected citizen of C. was John J. Railey, whose home for many 
years was on Zion's Hill. He was b. in Kilbrittain, County of Cork, Ireland, 
11 Sept., 184.3. His father and mother with their five children emigrated to 
this country in 1847 and landed in Boston with no means of support except 
their daily labor. The mother d. in Nov., following their arrival, and the 
children were left to care for themselves while the father was at work. A 
pathetic incident in Mr. Railey's early life led to his coming to C. One Sun- 
day when he was but nine years of age, he was arrested for playing marbles 
on Boston Common. No notice of his arrest was sent to his father, and 
no one appearing in his defense, he was sent to the reform school at Deer 
Island as a stray cliild. Here he remained for two years, when he was bound 
out as an apprentice to Robert Eastman of East Concord. Life in tliis family 
not proving congenial, he ran away, and, by the aid of John Hutchins, a section 
boss on the old B. C. & M. Railroad, he was taken on a hand car to C. depot 
and from thence to the home of the sisters, Polly and Jane Haines on Zion's 
Hill. They adopted him and their house was his home until their death. It 
■was not until years after that he learned anything of his own family. His 
father had d. without knowing what had become of his son. 

Mr. Railey enlisted in 1862 in Co. G, 2d Regt., U. S. Sharpshooters, and 
served until 4 Dec, 1864, when he was discharged for disabihty, having been 
woimded at Gettysburg. He now returned to the Haines sisters and cared for 
them imtil their death. They, in appreciation of his services, left him their 
property. In 1873, Mr. Railey sold the farm on Zion's Hill and removed to 
Leominster, Mass., which is now his home. In both C. and Leominster, he 
he has been honored by his fellow-citizens with election to office. He has also 
served as Commander of his Post of the G. A. R. in Leominster, and his photo- 
graph has been placed in the Hall of Heroes in the State House at Concord.

The name of Sambome or Sanborn, with its different variations, is not 
uncommon in America; it is extremely rare in England, however, and all 
evidences point to there having been but one distinct family of the name from 
ancient times. 

The earUest mention of the family name in Eng. (A. D. 1194) gives it aa 
De Sandeburne, but as early as 1330 it is spelled Samborne or Sambourne. 
Since the fourteenth century the last two forms have been the accepted English 
spelling, and the only two branches now in existence in Eng. use these. 

The first ancestors in America spelled their name Samborne, and, with or 
without the final "e," so it was spelled for several generations. Gradually 
the "m" was changed to "n," until by 1750 the name was spelled as at present, 
the final "e" being altogether dropped. The original and traditional pro- 
nunciation in this country was Sahmbourn, with a marked accent on the first 
syllable. There are several places in Eng. from which our family may have 
derived its name. Among these is Sambourne, a division of the parish of 
Warminster, in Wiltshire. The earliest record of the family name in England 
is associated with Wiltshire; therefore this is probably the place from which 
the Sambornes took their name. 

John, Wilham and Stephen Samborne (for so they spelt the name) were 
sons of an English Samborne (probably William of Brimpton, Berks.) and 
Anne, dau. of Rev. Stephen Bachiler. Lieut. John Samborne, b. 1620. Proba- 
bly in Hampton in 1640, since he was then granted a house-lot and a tract of 
land there. In 1643, his name is signed to a Hampton petition; and from 
this date the records contain frequent mention of him.

The Scales family in C. is descended from Edward^ Scales, who went from 
Lee to that town about 1780. He was the son of Edward Scales, and nephew 
of the Rev. James Scales who was noted in the early history of C. Edward, 
Sr., and James were great-grandsons of WilHami Scales of Rowley, Mass., who 
was one of the company that began the settlement of that town in 1640, 
coming mostly from Rowley, Eng. WiUiam Scales was b. about 1612. The 
place of his birth is not known. It may have been in London, and his pa- 
rents may have been William and Margaret (Greene) Scales, she the dau. of" 
Robert Greene. The Scales family in Eng., dates from the landing of Wilham, 
the Conqueror, in 1066. The origin of the name came from that commander- 
of the division of King William's army, which came over to Eng. with him from 
Normandy, whose duty it was to scale the walls of a besieged city when the 
proper time came to make such an assault. This general's name was Hugh; 
they had only one name then; in the history of the time, he is called Hugh de 
Eschalers and Hugh de Scalenus; that Hugh was commander of the Scalers 
of the city walls and fortifications. 


In about three centuries the "de" was dropped, so instead of James de 
Scales, it became James Scales. Members of the Scales family won fame and 
high honors in the crusades and the various English wars.

ley, Mass. He was accompanied by his wife, Ann, and three children.

The first reference to the Sutton family in the C. records is when the wid. 
Margaret Sutton was taxed in 1776. Her name continues on the tax list 
until 1787, but not appearing as the head of a family in the U. S. Census of 
1790, it is presumed that she went to res. with her son John, with whom she 
remained until her death, 12 March, 1816. Whether she was accompanied 
by her husband when she came to C. is not known. If so, he d. soon after 
her arrival. The following entries relative to the Sutton family appear in 
the town register of births, marriages and deaths : 

The birth of Michael Sutton's children:

John Sutton was town clerk of C. for several years. The last entry in the 
early register of vital statistics is as follows : 

"Where births or marriages are recorded without naming the place, they are 
to be considered as belonging to Canterbury, so far as has been recorded by 
me, the subscriber, and I do recommend it to my successors to consider it in 
like manner or else to note the place of the birth and the place of abode of 
each person at the time of their marriage." 

"John Sutton, Town Clerk. 

"Canterbury, March, 9, 1806." 

Stephen Sutton, the first born of Margaret Sutton, appears on the tax list 
in 1778, when he was in his twenty-second year, and again in 1785 and 1787. 
He is not found in the U. S. Census of 1790, unless he was residing with one of 
his brothers. Michael Sutton is taxed for the first time in 1779, again in 1785 
and 1787 and he is enumerated in the Census of 1790. His family, including 
himself, consisted of two males of sixteen or .over, two males under sixteen 
and three females, one of whom was probably his wife. The additional male 
of sixteen or over may have been his brother Stephen or his brother Solomon. 
The latter is taxed in 1785 and 1787, but is not foimd in the Census of 1790. 

An Edmund Sutton of a later generation, who lived a mile and a quarter 
north of the Chase farm in the Hill's Corner school district and worked for 
Levi Chase, must have been a grandson of Margaret Sutton. This Edmund 
had a dau. who m. Simeon Spencer who was a tenant after m. on the Nathaniel 
Batchelder place. 


When administration was granted on the estate of Margaret Sutton in 1816, 
Stephen Sutton decHned administration in favor of his brother John. The 
latter presented a bill for the care of his mother from March, 1806, to March, 
1816. There are credits in the bill of payments by Edmund Grover and Capt. 
Thomas Curry for the use of her place. Mrs. Sutton's real estate consisted 
of a forty-acre lot in C. which was appraised at $325. John Sutton's bond 
as administrator was signed by his brother Stephen and by Thomas Lyford. 

Stephen Sutton resided in the Hill's Comer school district from 1801 to 
1805 on the farm where James G. Lyford settled and is said to be buried in 
the cemetery on that farm.

1. HuGHi Tallant, b. in Co. Carlow, Ire., was of Scotch descent, and came 
as a pioneer to Haverhill, Mass., before 1731. He was an employee 
of Col. Richard Saltonstall, a member of His Majesty's Council. Con- 
siderable romance attaches to this first American Tallant. Whittier's 
poem of "The Sycamores" was written about him. 

"Green memorials of the gleeman! 
Linking still the river-shores, 
With their shadows cast by sunset, 
Stand Hugh Tallant's sycamores." 


Miss Noyes' "History of Hampstead," says: "Hugh Tallant, . , . 
who set out the long rows of sycamore trees on the 'Saltonstall seat,' 
or what has been known in later j^ears as the ' Buttonwoods, ' on Water 
street, Haverhill, came as a pioneer to the 'Island Farm' in 1731. He 
was known as 'Fiddler Hugh.'" The "Island farm in Perch pond" 
originally belonged to Col. Richard Saltonstall. Hugh Tallant after- 
wards lived in another part of Hampstead, later in Plaistow, and finally 
Pelham where he d. about 1795. 

In 1749, Hugh Tallant m. Abiah, dau. of Daniel Little of Hampstead,

b. She d. about 1752. He m. second, 28 June, 1753, Mary Dodge of 
Hampstead and had ten children. There is record of the bapt. of Hugh 
and James, the eldest sons of the second marriage, in the Congregational 
Church of Hampstead. Certain documents in possession of Mrs. Henry 
Pinkham Tallant of Nantucket would seem to indicate that Hugh Tal- 
lant was a member of the Church of England. His name, however, 
appears seventh on a list of petitioners of Pelham for a parish. His 
second wife d. 22 Feb., 1815. Children by first wife:
