PREFACE. 



^pHIS Genealogy of the Families of Hingham has 
been compiled in accordance with a vote of the 
committee appointed by the town to prepare and publish 
its history. It commences with the settlement of the 
town in 1635, and ends September 1, 1889. 

Owing to the extent of the work, which has greatly 
exceeded the early estimates made for this portion of the 
history, it has been found necessary to curtail much of 
the material at hand relating to the heads of families ; and 
also to make free use of abbreviations. For the same 
reason the compiler was instructed to limit the records of 
families to those persons who are, or have been, residents 
of the town ; but where part of a family of children were 
born here, and others of the same family were born else- 
where, the whole have been given when the names could 
be ascertained, rather than to break the Connection. 

That there may be errors of omission and errors of date, 
as well as in the spelling of names (especially Christian 
names) in some portions of the work, which the genealo- 
gist of each family will notice, and perhaps criticise, is not 
improbable. But when it is considered that more than fifty 
thousand lines with as many Christian names and about 
three times the number of dates have been written and 



viii Preface. 

re-written many times, — that the town, the parish, and 
family records often disagree concerning the same birth, 
marriage, or death, and that in many instances, especially 
of recent date, the facts required could not be ascertained 
from either public or private records, — it is hoped that the 
embarrassing conditions under which the writer has often 
labored, together with the magnitude of the undertaking, 
will in some measure be accepted as an excuse for whatever 
is unsatisfactory. 

The plan adopted for the successive sketches is that 
which is in use by the New England Historical and Gen- 
ealogical Society. It is quite simple and easily understood 
by those who are familiar with genealogical investigations ; 
and to those who are not, a brief study will soon make clear 
its seeming mysteries. The figure which precedes the head 
of a family — if descended from the first settlers — denotes 
the number of families bearing the surname, and refers back 
to the family of the immediate ancestor, where the same 
person is designated, in the list of children, by the same 
number at the left of the Roman numeral. Following 
this rule it is easy to trace back through the whole an- 
cestral line to the progenitor. The Christian names and 
figures which are given in parenthesis after the head of a 
family denote the ancestral line and generation in consecu- 
tive order. The names in parenthesis which follow the 
heads of families who have been or are residents of the 
town, but whose ancestral line is not traced, refer to the 
parents, and include the mother's maiden name. Figures 
at the left of the Roman numeral refer forward, where the 
same number will precede the family history of the person 
designated. 



Preface. ix 

Cohasset having formerly been a part of Hingham, and 
known as the east or second precinct, its families are in- 
cluded in the succeeding records up to 1770, when it was 
incorporated as a separate town. 

The writer gratefully acknowledges his indebtedness to 
Charles B. W. Lane and Quincy Bicknell, of Hingham ; to 
Rev. Joseph Osgood and Aaron Pratt, of Cohasset ; and 
to Gen. Samuel Andrews, Charles J. F. Binney, and Albert 
T. Whiting, of Boston, for the loan of valuable records. Also 
to Charles N. Marsh, Elijah Shute, Edwin D. Gardner, and 
David Cobb, Jr. for assistance in collecting information. 
Without the aid thus renderc 1 some of the records would 
have been quite incomplete.

OLD AND NEW STYLE. 

A CCORDING to "Old Style" the year began on the 25th of March, 
■^*- and 1751 was the last year of " Old Style." In recording events 
which occurred from the 1st of January to the 25th of March before 
1751, double dating has been practised in Hingham, as elsewhere. Ac- 
cording to " New Style " the year begins on the 1st of January, and 
1752 was the first year of "New Style." The day following the 2d 
of September, 1752, was called the 14th, omitting eleven intermediate 
nominal days. 

FREEMEN. 

To be a freeman in the early history of the Colony was to be a member 
of the Church ; and none but freemen could vote for rulers or be elected 
to office. The freeman's oath bound him to be a true and faithful subject 
of the government, and if called upon he was to yield assistance and support 
thereto with his person and estate. 

Among the many laws enacted by the Colonists relating to freemen 
were the following : — 

" 1641. Every Court within this Jurisdiction where two Magistrates are 
present, may admit any Church Members, that are fit to be freemen, giv- 
ing them the Oath, and the Clerk of each Court shall certifie their Names 
to the Secretary at the next General Court." 

"Oct. 15, 1673. As an addition to the Law Title Freeman (sec. iii). 
It is ordered by this Court, and the Authority thereof; That henceforth, 
the Names of such as desire to be admitted to the Freedome of this Com- 
monwealth, not being Members of Churches in full Communion, shall be 
entered with the Secretary from time to time at the Court of Election, 
and Read over before the whole Court, sometime that Sessions, and 
shall not be put to Vote in the Court till the Court of Election, next 
following."

ANDREWS. 

1. Thomas, and his s. Joseph 2 , came from Devonshire, Eng., and 
settled in our Hing. prior to the arrival of Rev. Peter Hobart and 
his company in 1635. At the first drawing of house-lots, Sept. 18, 
1635, he had five acres (including back land) granted to him on Town 
(North) St. His lot was the one upon which now stands the dwelling 
owned by heirs of the late Perez Lincoln. Whether he was related 
to any of the persons bearing this surname among the early settlers 
of Taunton, Ipswich, Cambridge, Dorchester, and other places in East- 
ern Massachusetts is uncertain. He was aged, and prob. old enough 
to have been the fa. of the Thomas who settled at Dorchester in 1634, 
and who had a s. Thomas bt. there June 23, 1639 ; but there is no rec. 
showing such a connection. Rev. Peter Hobart of Hing. wrote in his 
diary under date of Aug. 21, 1643, "Old Thomas Andrews dyed." 
From this expression I am led to infer that there were other per- 
sons bearing the same name who were kn. to Mr. Hobart ; although 
in Hing. there was but one of the name, and he a lad of but ten or 
eleven yrs. of age. 

2. Joseph 2 (Thomas 1 ), b. at Devonshire, Eng., ab. 1597, came early 
to Hing., and had a grant of a house-lot on Town (North) St., Sept. 18, 
1635. The lot was next west of his father's, and contained five acres, 
inc. back land. At the May court in 1635 he was sworn as constable. 
In 1636, 1637, and 1638 he was one of the representatives of the town 
at the General Court. He also was the first town clerk of Hing. He 



Andrews. 11 

afts. removed to Dux., and in 1654 was surveyor of highways, and 
constable in 1664. Oct. 16, 1665, Joseph Andrews and his wife Eliz- 
abeth of Dux. convey to Thomas Andrews of Hing. "our natural 
son," "our house-lot and dwelling-house, out-buildings, etc., and 10 
acres of land which was formerly given us by the town of Hingham, 
bounded on Town Street, south, Broad Cove, north," etc. At a later 
date he returned to Hing., and d. here 1 Jan. 1679-80, »t. 83 yrs. His 
wid. d. 12 Aug. 1688. His will, which is on file in the S. P. office, 
and "dated at Hingham 27 Sept. 1679," mentions and provides for w. 
Elizabeth ; gives to s. Joseph, among other valuables, " my sword, gold 
ring, and a bible ; " to s. Ephraim " the estate in New Jersey ; " men-

BATES (Bate; Batte). 

1. Clement, aged 40 yrs. with Anna his wife, who also was 40 
vrs. of age, and five ch. embarked at London for New England, Apr. 
6, 1635, in the ship " Elizabeth," of which William Stagg was master. 
He came to Hing. ab. the time Rev. Peter Hobart and his followers 
arrived, and on the 18th of Sept. 1635, received a grant of land on 
Town (South) St. This lot contained five acres, and was bounded 
on the N. E. by George Russell, and S. W. by Thomas Johnson. It 
was the fifth in number from Bachelor (Main) St. and has been in 
possession of the descendants of the original grantee for nearly two 
and a half centuries. In 1883 the estate, including the ancient dwell- 
ing-house formerly known as the "Anchor Tavern," was sold to the 
owners of the land adjoining. A portion of the estate, however, has 
since been repurchased ; and on the spot where the old house stood a 
dwelling of modern style has been erected, which is occupied by 
a descendant. 

The name Bate was a common one in England for nearly two cen- 
turies before the Puritans took their departure for New England, and 
the ancestors of Clement are traceable for five generations prior to 
that period; thus, Thomas Bate 1 of Lydd, Parish of All Hallows, d. 
in 1485, leaving a s. John, who d. in 1522. John 2 (Thomas 2 ), had a 
s. Andrew, who d. at Lydd in 1533, leaving four sons. Andrew 3 
(John 2 Thomas *), had a s. John 4 of Lydd, who d. there in 1580, leav- 
ing three sons, one of whom, James 5 , who d. at Lydd in 1614, was 
the fa. of Clement of Hingham, Mass., and also of Edward, who settled 
at Wey., Mass., and of James of Dor., Mass. Anna, wife of Clement, 
d. in Hing. 1 Oct. 1669, aet. 74 yrs. Clement d. 17 Sept. 1671, aet. 76 
yrs. In his will, dated at Hing. 12 Oct. 1669, gives to eldest s. 
James, "my house-lot next adjoining to my son Joseph, containing 
four acres, which was given unto me by the town. To sons Joseph 
and Benjamin, land and other valuables. To son Samuel, my now 
dwelling-house with the lot of five acres which the house stands 
upon. Also all my household stuff to my four sons," etc.

1. Richard, b. 1608, arrived at Boston, 1630 ; freeman, 1632 ; and 
from 1633 to 1649 inc. a resident of Ply. Mass. Subsequently he was 
for a short time at Eastham, removing thence to Charlestown. Jan. 
24, 1653, he purchased of Thomas Joy "one halfe or moytie of his 
Corne mill standeing vpon y e Ryuer caled y e towne Coue in hingham 
It is with y e damme head & streame thereunto belongeing and halfe 
y e lott of Lande Lying there unto contayneing fower or six acres w cb 
was formerly y* lands of Abraham Martyn," etc. (S. R. Vol. II. pp. 82, 
83). Richard, without doubt, was a resident of Hing. during the re- 
mainder of his life. He m. ab. 1636 Elizabeth, dan. of Richard and 
Elizabeth (Jouatt) Warren, who, in 1620, came to Plymouth in the 
" Mayflower." She d. in Hing. 4 March, 1670. He d. at Dedham, 27 
Dec. 1668, "though he was buried in Hing., and his will was made

owned and occupied by heirs of the late Col. Charles Lane, on North St.

third w. Oct. 10, 1719, Sarah, dau. of Francis and Mary Horswell. 
Benjamin was known as " Captain," and afts. as "Colonel." He was the 
distinguished hero of the Indian Wars, and commanded the party by which 
King Philip was slain. (See Windsor's "Duxbury," and Barry's 
" Hanover.") Some have thought Col. Benjamin was a nephew of Rich- 
ard ; but this seems somewhat improbable from the fact that the date of 
his m., Dec. 26, 1667, was recorded in Hing. by Rev. Peter Hobart, who, 
prob. would not have entered in his diary a marriage occurring in another 
town, had not one at least of the parties m. been closely connected with 
those of the name in Hing.

CUSHING- (Cushan ; Cushen ; Cushyn). 

1. Matthew, with his w. and five ch., came from Hing. in Old 
Eng., and settled in Hing. in New Eng.. in the autumn of 1638. 
According to a memorandum kept by one of the fam., they came to 
Boston in the ship "Diligent," John Martin, master, arriving on the 
10th of Aug. of that yr. Matthew, however, had sev. lots granted 
him prior to his arrival here. The lot upon which he built his dw.- 
house, first below Pear Tree Hill, was among those granted for build- 
ing purposes on Bachelor (Main) St. in 1638, and it continued in the 
fam. possession until 1887. The history of the Cushing fam. is 
traceable in Eng. for sev. generations before either Pilgrim or Pu- 
ritan set sail for America. A Thomas Cushing owned land in 
Hing. and other parts of Eng., early in the fifteenth century. Wil- 
liam, the oldest s. of Thomas, commenced his will of 1492 as foil. : —

1. John, who, it is said, resided in Hing. for a short time, was

thing relating to him on Hing. rec's. He may have been " John the 
bee-hive maker " who finally settled at Newbury, as has been suggested 
by various historical writers. 

2. Samuel, s. of the preceding, and bt. at Dor. May 3, 1640, was for 
many yrs. a resident of Milford, Conn., but removed to Hing. prob. 
ab. 1689, and on Aug. 22d of that yr. in. Mrs. Sarah North, wid. of 
Edward North of Boston.* She was his (Samuel's) sec. w. His first 
w, was Anna Lenthal, dau. of Rev. Robert Lenthal of Wey. In 1705 
he purchased of Caleb Bate nine acres of land, meadow and orchard, 
on Town St. (between the present residences of William O. Lincoln 
and Kufus Lane on South St.). Aug. 3, 1713, wid. Sarah Eells of Scit. 
sells to George Bramhall, " currier," of Hing., " my house and land : " 
N. by the Town St., E. by Caleb Bate ; S. by Daniel Gushing, and 
W. by Samuel Thaxter, etc. She d. 2 Nov. 1738, set. ab. 70 yrs. Sam- 
uel while a resident of Hing. was by occupation " merchant." He also 
was a magistrate ; selectman 1695 ; representative 1705 and 1706, and 
kn. as " Major Eells." He had been in command of a garrison at 
Ponagansett (Dartmouth) in Philip's War, 1676, and without doubt 
was a man of ability as well as of good education. He d. in 1709, aet. 
69 yrs. His residence in Hing. according to our tax-lists, was on 
Fort Hill St. His wid. removed to Scit. after his decease. Of the 
eight or more ch. of Major Eells I kn. but little. They prob. were 
by his first w., and b. before he came to Hing. It is reasonable, how- 
ever, to suppose that the subjoined were of this farm, for I kn. of no 
other person of the name in Scit. at that time, who would have had 
ch. old enough to marry. Moreover, the continuance of the chris. 
names of Samuel and Anna is strong presumptive evidence that the 
foil, were his

with others in 1635. See "History of Hingham," by .Solomon Lin- 
coln, pp. 43, 44). He had land granted him in 1635, 1647, etc., and 
after his decease other lots in the six divisions fell to his heirs, which

298 Hersey. 



HERSEY. 

Variously written Hersee, Harsie, and Hearsey, on early records. 

1. William, was the progenitor of all who have borne this surname 
in Hing. and vie. He came to New Eng. in 1635, and early in the 
autumn of that yr. located in Hing. with others who were passengers 
on the ship he came in. July 3, 1636, he had a house-lot of five acres 
granted him, on what is now South, nearly opp. West St. The lot 
was bounded east by John Winchester, west by William Buckland, 
and included within its limits the est. now owned by heirs of the late 
Ebenezer Gay, Esq. The surname Hersey, or Hersy, is a very ancient 
one, and prob. of French origin, as it appears among the list of noble- 
men and gentlemen who went over to Eng. with William the Con- 
queror. In Hing. it is still one of the more numerous of the surnames

Hingham," p. 175, it is stated that "Emanuel, or Anthony, Hilliard 



332 Milliard — Hillman — Hinckley. 

was lost with seven other persons in a boat going out of Hampton, 
20 Oct. 1657." Possibly the Anthony referred to may have been the

which has been made more accessible and attractive thereby.

HOBART (Hubbard). 

1. Edmund, from Hing. County of Norfolk, Eng., and b. in that 
parish, ab. 1570, was the ancestor of all who have borne this surname 
by birth in our Hing. or its vie. He arrived at Charlestown, 1633, and 
with his s. Thomas, and several others, came to " Bare Cove," the same 
yr. (See Liucoln's " History of Hingham," pp. 41 and 156), prob. for 
the purpose of assisting in establishing a new plantation or township. 
It is generally thought, however, that he did not locate here perma- 
nently until the arrival of his s. the Rev. Peter Hobart, and those who 
came with him. He was one of the early settlers who drew their 
house-lots on Town (North) St., on the 18th of Sept. 1635 ; Edmund's 
lot being the 17th, while Nos. 18 and 19 were granted to two of his sons. 
His first w., Margaret Dewey, was the mother of his ch. His sec. w., 
whom he m. at Charlestown, Oct. 10, 1634, was Mrs. Sarah Lyford, 
the wid. of Rev. John Lyford. The dates of his, and of his sec. w.'s 
decease, are recorded in Hobart's Diary as foil. : " March 8, 1646, 
father Hubbeard dyed." " June 23, 1649, mother Hobart dyed." He, 
therefore, at the time of his decease, was ab. 76 yrs. of age. Resided 
opp. Hobart's Bridge, North St. Freeman, March 4, 1634 ; constable 
the same yr. ; and in 1639, 1640, and 1642 a deputy to the Great and

adult. He m. in Hing. Dec. 23, 1665, Hannah, dau. of George and 
Sarah Lane. She was bt. in Hing. Feb. 24, 1638-39. As no further 
information relating to them is given on Hing. rec's, it seems more 
than prob. that he may have been the Thomas Humphrey who afts. 
resided at Pemaquid ; and this view is strengthened by the traditions 
which have been disseminated by the older members of the fam. By 
the will of his fa. in law, George Lane, it appears that the sons of 
Thomas and Hannah Humphrey, were —

JOHNSON. 

1. Humphrey 2 prob. s. of John 1 , an early resident of Roxbury, 
and whose names appear in this relation in a mortgage deed dated 
"22° of the 7° month, 1643" (S. D.), "was a resident of Scituate," 
says Deane's History, " in 1651." He seems to have been a man of 
ability and shrewdness, but inclined to make trouble both with the 
town and Colony officials, as will be seen by the foil, extract from the 
Colony records : " 1673. Humphrey Johnson, having come into this 
Government without leave of the Governor and two of the Assist- 
ants (contrary to law), is now ordered to remove his dwelling and 
cottage, erected within the town of Scituate, within one month from 
the date hereof, or else order shall be given for the pulling down 
thereof." He shortly after became a resident of Hing., as will be 
seen by the foil. : " The 30 th day of March, 1674, vpon the request 
of Humphrey Johnson of Hingham, the selectmen of Hingham, on the 
behalf of the Towne granted the said Humphrey Johnson liberty to 
remove his house off Scituate Land vnto Hingham Towne Common 
Land, and he is to remove it off Hingham Land againe at three 
months warning." On the 22d of Apr. 1675, he was granted certain 
privileges for improvements by the selectmen, and admonished, con- 
cerning the establishing of certain fence lines, " to regard the matter 
quietly." He was twice m. Eleanor, his first w., d. in Hing. 28

JONES (Joanes). 

1. Robert, one of the early planters of Hing. was the ancestor of 
nearly all the families who have borne the surname Jones in this town. 
Richard and Thomas Jones received grants of land here in 1637 and 
1638, but neither of these appear to have been residents of the town. 
A Richard Jones of Dor. d. in 1642 ; and a Thomas Jones d. there in 
1667. There were Thomas Joneses also among the very early settlers 
of Charlestown, Concord, Newbury, Gloucester, Taunton, Springfield, 
Boston, and other places. Abraham Jones of Hull, 1657, was the 
fa. of seven sons, viz. : Benjamin, Thomas, Abraham, Josiah, Joseph, 
John, and Ephraim. But how any of the foregoing were connected 
with our Hing. fam. of Jones, if at all, is not clear. At the time 
the new meeting-house was built in Hing., 1680-81, there were but 
three persons of the surname Jones upon the tax-lists, viz. : Robert, 



Jones. 387 

Joseph, Sr., and Joseph, Jr. ; i. e., father, son, and grandson. The re- 
corded wills and conveyances in Suffolk County, as well as the facts 
furnished by our local records and tax-lists, will throw much light 
upon the subject to those who seek further information relating 
thereto. 

Robert Jones, according to the Genealogical Dictionary prepared by 
Mr. Savage, removed from here to Rehoboth ab. 1644, but soon re- 
turned again to Hing. He prob. was twice m. ; but the name of his 
first w. is unk. to the writer. The chris. name of his sec. w. was 
Elizabeth. She outlived him, and d. in Hing. 25 Sept. 1712. He d. 
17 Nov. 1691. In his will, dated at Hing. 20 Apr. 1688, he gives vari- 
ous small sums in shillings and pence " to sons Joseph, John, and 
Benjamin the elder ; also to daughters Sarah Belknap, and Jane Col- 
lyer (Collier), and to my grand children which are the children of my 
son Robert Jones, deceased ; all of which sums of money are to be 
paid them at my now dwelling-house in Hingham. To my wife Eliz- 
abeth all my whole estate of houses, lands, and orchards, and all my 
meadows and shares in the commons and commonage which I possess 
either by gift or purchase or exchange ; . . . and because my estate 
is but small I do hereby give my said wife full power to sell some of 
the said land to supply her immediate necessities," etc. He also be- 
queaths " to my son Benjamin Jones the younger, which the said 
Elizabeth my wife bear unto me, all my said estate after the death of 
his mother." Witnesses, James Hawke, Theophilus Cushing, Daniel 
Cushing. " Farmer ; " or, as he calls himself in his will, " planter." 
Resided at Hing. Centre, " over the river."

to N. H., ab. the time the Gilmans, Foulshams, and Leavitts removed to 
Exeter. 
vi. Ephraim, bt. in Hing. July 29, 1649. (See No. 11.)

3. ix. Benjamin, Oct. 27, 1666. 

Note. — The Diarv of Rev. Peter Hobart of Hing. gives the bapt's of other Joneses, as foil. : 
Thomas, March 29, 1640 ; Mary, Mav 28, 1643 ; Lydia, July 15, 1655; Joseph, Jan. 30, 1659 ; 
Thomas, May 29, 1659, and Joseph, May, 1668. With the exception of Thomas (perh. s. of 
Thomas the " tailor' - ), a non-resident, who m. in Hing. Dec. 29, 1673, Elizabeth Pitts, there 
is no further mention of this surname upon the early rec's of the town.

mother Elizabeth Jones, and to his late fa. Robert Jones, and directs 
that any portion of their est. which may fall to him, be divided be-
