Robinson Ctncaqc. 

A PEDIGRKE of the Robinson family, in the British Museum (Flarleian 
MSS. No. 1550), goes back to the year 1208 and names as its founder John 
Robinson, of Donington (a market town iti Lincolnshire, 7 miles s. w. of 
Boston), wlio married a daughter of Thomas Paule. Two pedigrees are 
recorded in the Visitation of Lincolnshire, 1562-4, by Robert Cooke. 
Chester Herald at Arms, and may be found on pp. 104-5, of the edition of 

1. Nicholas' Robixson, born at Boston in Lincolnshire, 1480; he was 
the first mayor, appointed in 1545 by King Henry VHI. His son 

2. Nicholas' Robinson, born 1530, was father to 

3. Rev. John^ Robinson, born 1575. That so little has been ascertained 

of the private history of this eminent man is disappointing. Two 
of the colleges at Cambridge, England, have entries; one of which 
should apply to him. 

Emmanuel College register reads: 

"John Robinson, entered as sizar 2 March 1592; took his A.M. 
1600; and B.D. 1607." 

Corpus Christi College register reads : 

"John Robinson, F. Lincolnshire, admitted 1592; Fellow. 1598." 

The opinion prevails that this second entry refers to the Pilgrim 

After graduation, Mr. Robinson took orders in the Church of 
England; but for omission or modification of some ceremony, or dis- 
use of some prescribed vestments, he was suspended by the Bishop 
of Norwich. Upon this, he resigned his fellowship in 1604, and 
nevermore officiated at the altars of the Established Chutcli. He 
soon became assistant to Rev. Mr. Clyfton, pastor of a Separatist 
Church, which met at the dwelling of William Brewster, a gentle- 
man of fortune and education, near Scrooby in Nottinghamshire, 
who was, subsequently. Ruling Elder of the Church of Plymouth, 
Mass. Mr. Clyfton and several of the Church removing, in 1606, 
to Holland, Mr. Robinson became pastor of the remnant. The 
civil power continuing persecution, they also went over in 1608. 
The English exiles in Holland being far from harmonious ai.d much 
disturbed by internal commotion, Mr. Robinson, who was a man of 
peace, withdrew the members of his church to Leyden in 1609, 
where they remained till the emigration to America. At Leyden, 
Mr. Robinson became a member of the University, as the register 
still shows, viz : 


Sept 5 Joannes Robintsonus Anglus. 

Coss. permissu. Ann. xxxix. 

Stud. Theol. alit Familiam. 

In 1620, the younger and physically stronger portion of the Ley- 
den church departed to America and successfully founded the Pilgrim 
Colony at Plymouth, Mass. Mr. Robinson remained at Leyden, 
with the older and feebler members, in the hope of eventually fol- 
lowing the larger emigration. In this he was disappointed; for he 
died at Leyden, 1 March, 1625, in the fiftieth year of his age. On 
tlie 4th, he was buried in the churchyard of the Cathedral of St. 
Peter's, in the presence of the University magistrates, scholars and 
gentry of the city. The record may still be read in the "book of 
Interments " : 

4 Maart. — Jan Roelends, Predicant van de Engelsche Gemeente, 
by het Klockhujs — begraven in de Pieter's Kerk. 

In 1891, a handsome bronze tablet was placed upon the wall 
of St. Peter's Cathedral, by American citizens, to the memory of 
IMr. Robinson. It reads : 

For additional, see Ency. Brit., vol. xx., p. 608. 

Mr. Robinson married Bridget White, who survived him. After- 
ward, she conformed to the Reformed Church of Holland, and died 
in that communion. Children :

1st, 163G, Margaret Hanford, sister of Rev. Tiioinas Hanford and a 
niece of Timothy Ilatherly, who came to Plymouth, 1623, in the 
Ann, and was a magistrate at Falmouth. Isaac Robinson dwelt at 
Plymouth. Duxbnry and Barnstable. His wife dying, he man-ied a 
second wife in 1649-50. In 1659, he was disfranchised for con- 
demning the anti-Quaker laws as unjust. In 1665, he kept an 
ordinary at Falmouth (Succonnesset) ; in 1673, he was town clerk 
at Tisbury; in 1701, he returned to Barnstable, wliere he remained 
with his daughter, Fear, wife of Samuel Baker, till his death in 
1704, when nearly ninety-four years old. Cliildi-en :

Nicholas is an old name in Frost genealogy. We find, in the exche- 
quer accounts of King Henry IV., the entry of 3l£. 8s. paid to Nicholas 
Frost, bowman, for the manufacture of five hundred bows. The earliest 
of this family in Maine was George Frost at Winter Harbor, at the mouth 
of the Saco river, now known as Biddeford Fool. Whether he came 
with Vines in 1616, with Norton in 1623, with Lewis and Bonighton in 
1629, or with which other of the various attempts at settlement at that 
spot, we find no record. His name, George, would indicate that he was 
from Binsted in the parish of Alton, Hampshire, England, where was 
anciently a church dedicated to St. Nicholas, and where there was, in 1876, 
a George Frost, grocer, and John Frost, shopkeeper. All this, however, 
is but conjecture. We only know that George Frost was an appraiser, in 
1635, on the estate of a servant of Gov. Cradock, of the Bay colony, and 
that he served on the grand jury in 1640. It has been thouglit that he 
had four children : 

i. Eebecca,^ m. 1663, Simon Booth, b. 1641, son of Robert Booth of 
Saco. Removed to Enfield, Conn., and d. Dec. 1688. Children: 
(1) William, b. 1664, d. 1753; (2) Zach., b. 1666, d. 1741; (3) 
Elizabeth, b. 1668, m. 1693, Jona. Pease; (4) 3Iary, b. 1670, m. 
1700, Israel Markham. 

ii. Philip, ni. 1677, Martlia (Merry), widow of Andrew Rayiikins. 

iii. William, m. Mary ; liad a grant at Croolied lane, Kittery, 

1659 ; was at Salem 1677 and 1679, at Cape Porpoise 1678, at Wells 
1682-5; was a shoemaker; called "Goodman Frost"; slain by 
Indians, 1690. Children: (1) William ; {2) 3Iary,h. sX^&lem, 2,1 
July, 1677; (3) Nathaniel; (4) Abigail, m. Samuel Upton, and 
perhaps others. 

iv. John, m. Rose ; d. 1675-80. Children : (1) John; (2) Philip; 

(3) Anne, m. Alexander Maxwell. 

1. Nicholas' Frost, from Tiverton, a town in Devonshire, England, 
near the city of Exeter, settled in 1636 on Sturgeon creek, Kittery, 
now Eliot, where he had large influence till his death in 1663. He 
was father to Maj. Charles Frost. This family sided with Massa- 
chusetts in the contest with the agents of Gorges and Champer- 
nowne. An inadequate and somewhat inaccurate genealogy was 
published some years ago by Dr. Usher Parsons. Children : 

i. Charles,^ b. in England, 30 July, 1631 ; m. Mary, dau. of Joseph 
BoUes. Slain by Indians, 4 July, 1697. His widow d. November, 
1704. Children: (1) Charles,'' b. 1678, d. 1724; (2) John, b. 1681, 
d. 1733; (3) Nicholas, d. sine prole ; (4) Sarah, m. Joseph Ship- 
way; (5) Abigail, m. 1st, William Tyler, 2d, William Moody; (6) 
Lydia; (7) Mary, m. John Hill; (8) Elizabeth; (9) Mehitable. 

ii. Catherixe, b. in En2;land, August, 1633; m. 1st, John Leighton, 
2d, Joseph Hammond ; d. 15 August, 1715. Children: (1) Manj, 
b. 1657, m. John Hnukins; {'■2)^William, d. young; (3) John, b. 
May, 1661, m. OnerLangdon, d. 21 November, 1737; (4) Elizabeth, 
b. 1664, d. young. 

iii. John, b. in Engiand; ra. Sarah ; d. 1718, Children: (1) 

John; (2) daughter, m. William Fox. 

iv. Nicholas, d. at Limericlj, Ireland, 1 August, 1673, sine prole. 

V. Elizabeth, m. William Gowen, alias Smith. 

1. In 1662, another Nicholas' Frost came from the city of Bristol, 
England, indentured to Thomas Archer, and settled at Wells, with 
Francis Littlefield, the elder. He is thought to be the '"ISikholass 
frost" who took the oath of fidelity to Massachusetts in 1669; had 
wife Mary, and died in 1707. He was illiterate, but varies his 
mark, in his attempts to sign his name, sufficiently to identify him. 
If the surmise be correct, that his estate was administered in 1707, 
and 1712, he left a widow and children: 

i. Bartholojie,^ m. Elizabeth ; d. 1723, sine prole. 

ii. Elizabeth, m. John Richardson, 
iii. Eleanor, m. David Sayer. 

1. From 1650 to 1685, a Nicholas' Frost passed a busy life at Ne- 
uichawannock, on the eastern side of the river, as he was the last 
year a constal)le at Berwick. He was quite a constant factor in 
the court entries for an opprobrious, unruly tongue, for unseemly 
and violent behavior, for intemperance and rioting. His wife, 
Mary, who seems a well fitted mate, was a daughter of father 
Conley. The present Merritield family of York County, are de- 
scended from one of his six daugliters. He is called " beaver 
trader," which was a lucrative business on the Salmon Falls river 
at that day. In 1674, he and his wife Mary sold to Geoi-ge Brough- 
ton, land "lying on both sides the Salmon Falls Newiciiawanoke 
great river." The following, from the Dover (N. H.) [)etition of 
1654, is found in the N. 11. Frov. Papers, vol. i., p. 2Io: 

Where as we whose names are here under written are made choice of

1. "We see no reason for selection, or preference, in either of these 
stocks of Frost for our early ancestor, Nicholas' Frost, of Crooked 
lane, Kittery. As William Frost, shoemaker, was at one time in- 
terested in land on Crooked lane, some affiliation might be inferred; 
but it needs supporting evidence to produce conviction. Nicholas 


married, about the close of the seventeenth century, Dorothy, daugh- 
ter of Jonathan Menduni, of Kittery, and sister to Nathaniel, Jonathan 
and Robert, all grandchildren of Robert Mendum of Duxbury, 
born 1604, who removed to Kittery about 1640, and settled on 
Spruce creek, next to Gowen Willson, vphere he was constable in 
1652, selectman 1673, and died 1682. Nicholas Frost was a sailor, 
and 20 November, 1707, he purchased a homestead on Crooked 
lane, Kittery, of Robert Screven, shipwright, son of Rev. William 
Screven, the first Baptist minister in Maine, who was driven out of 
the province, then under Massachusetts law, for recusancy in reli- 
gious matters. As a mariner, Nicholas found Portsmouth a more 
convenient residence and, 10 December, 1707, he purchased a house 
there, of George Vaughan; the next month he sold his Screven 
homestead at Kittery to Diamond Sargent, taylor, from Ipswich. In 
January, 1708-9, he increased his holdings in Portsmouth by purchase 
of Tiiomas and Eleanor Phips. He and his wife Dorothy were bap- 
tized at Portsmouth, 19 September, 1708. After two children had 
been born, the wife Dorothy died, not earlier than June, 1713, and, 
3 December, 1714, Nicholas Frost married 2d, Sarah Huntress. 
In 1718 Nicholas Frost died, as an item in the account of Josh. 
Peirce vs estate of Nicholas Frost, in the Rockingham (N. H.) 
Probate Registry, reads: "13 June 1718, Pd John Nutter for 
making his Coffin." His widow married Thomas Darling, or Dal- 
ling, a member of a well regarded sea-faring family at Portsmouth. 
They soon removed to Durham, in that part called " the Hook,'' 
from a long bend and return in the Lamprey river. In 1766, this 
was incorporated as Lee. Children:

2. Nathaniel'' Frost, born at Kittery or Portsmouth, in the early 

years of the eighteenth century, spent his life as a carpenter and 
farmer, chiefly at Durham and Lee, N. H. In 1733 and '34 he 
was at Dover; by 1737 he had returned to Durham. Soon he 
married, for in November, 1739, he and his wife, Elizabeth, con- 
veyed to his brother John, shipwright, of Portsmouth, his interest 
in the house and land at Portsmouth, " bo't of their father, Thomas 
Darling, 10 Nov. 1737." In 1765, his name appears on the petition 
for the division of the town of Durham, and the creation of the new 
parish, Lee, in the western section. Children : 

i. Nicholas, =* sold laud to John Adams, 1750. The deed calls him son 

of Nathaniel Frost in ye Hook,

3. WiNTHROp' Frost was born in Lee, N. H., 1753. Served as a 

soldier in the Revolutionary war in the commands of Capt. Smith 
E^merson and Capt. Clark of Epping. He married Sarah Tuttle, 
born 23 December, 1755, daughter of George and Catherine (Stev- 
ens) Tuttle, of Lee. He settled at Lee as a farmer, after the war 
was over, though he maintained his military ardor and served in the 
New Hampshire militia as lieutenant and captain of the company 
at Lee. He died at Lee, July, 1810. His widow died at Madison, 


N. H., 31 December, 1855, aged 100 years and 8 days. So says 
the inscription on her tombstone, to which is added : 

To see a Pilgrim as she dies 

With glory in her view 
To Heaven she lifts her longing eyes, 
And bids the world adieu.

AcHERMAN, Akertnan, Acreman, Oldacre, Oddiker and Whitaker are 
names brought to P2ngland from Germany. Some of them five centuries 
ago. In England, Akerman is synonymous with Tihnan, Plowman, Mower, 
Dykeman and Hedger, or Hedgeman, representatives of agriculture. In 
the Hundred Rolls of the eastern counties, it appears as " Le Akerman," 
and a poem of that date says : 

The foules are up. and song on bough, 
And acreman yede to the Plough. 

The Anglo Saxon ^cerman, the German Akerman. the Dutchman Akker- 
man and the English Farmer are cognate with the Latin Agricola. They 
were a peculiar class of feudal tenants, whose holdings were small ; but they 
were independant farmers, not serfs. With the smaller freeholders, they 
make up the class called English yeomen. 

From this burgher class, long settled in England, came the Akermans of 
Portsmouth. Town bred and town loving to the core. Love in cottages 
or farm houses might have charms for others, but could only be endurable 
to them, provided the cottage were on Christian shore or Sagamore creek, 
or the farm house on the fertile lands of the Great bay. Their staunch 
protestantism had been converted into the sterner and uncompromising 
theology of the Old North Church, where the family pew has been occupied 
for the last two centuries, while much of the best Portsmouth life has been 
developed in the more liberal atmosphere of the South Church, or in the 
restful confidence, spiritual growth and Christian graces of St. John's. 

Like the later emigration of the same stock to Bergen County, New 
Jersey, the Akermans have led honest, faithful, useful lives, not without 
recognition on the part of their fellow citizens. Intellectually, the race 
culminated within the last sixty years, in the brilliant boy, who led the 
Golden Branch at Exeter and the Psi Upsilon at Dartmouth. In his senior 
year at college he encountered, unflinchingly, the best legal talent of 
Grafton county, and emerged victorious in an argument as impregnable as 
it was surprising in an undergraduate. On graduation he went to Georgia, 
where he took high rank at the bar, and was pronounced by Chief Justice 
Warner " the best practising lawyer within the State's limits." Surviving 
the confederate struggle against subjugation, in which he held for a short 
time a subaltern's commission in the Home Guard, he entered readily and 
heartily into the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the recusant and too 
sullen section of his residence, and was called by President Grant to his 
cabinet, where he held the portfolio of Justice with ability and credit. His 
value as the law officer of the Government did not atone for his lack as a 
politician, and, rejected at the South for his want of devotion to rights there 
held sacred, and distrusted at the North because he was without a follow- 
ing, he left the administration, in whose cabinet he exerted no influence, 
and, not long after, died in retirement. 

About 1716, we find Benjamin Akerman a trusty minor official of the 
Provincial Council and General Assetnbly, and similar position was capably 
held by his descendants for one or two generations. Since the Revolution, 
they have filled mercantile and industrial careers at Portsmouth, where, 
without being capitalists, they have been among the well-to-do. from whose 
ranks selectmen and bank directors have been chosen. In 1773, Benjamin 
Akerman was a selectman, and, in 1782, a warden of the North Parish. 


In 1789, Joseph Akerman was one of the committee to receive Gen. Wash- 
ington on his presidential tour, whicli extended as far east as Portsmouth. 
In 1813, Joseph Akerman Jr. was collector of taxes.

iJackson £incagc. 

From very early days there have been two distinct families of Jackson 
settled at Portsmouth, the one at Clirislian Shore, and tlie other at tlie 
south end of the town, at times within tlie limits of New Castle. 

JoHN^ Jackson, who had wife Joanna, and died in 1654, is the earliest 
of whom mention is made. His son : 

Richard' Jackson, born in England, took the oath of fidelity in 1656, 
and was a signer of the Petition of 1665. To him was granted twenty-six 
acres at Christian Shore in 1664, where he erected the building long known 
as "the old Jackson house" and credited with being the most ancient house 
in Portsmouth, N. H. It is a rare specimen of the architecture of the early 
days. On the north side the roof slants to the ground. The frame is of 
oak, the sills of which project into the rooms on the lower floor, affording a 
continuous and stationary seat for the children, which has been so appro- 
priated for six or seven generations. It is still owned in the family. His 
sou : 

John^ Jackson, b. 1657, d. 20 January, 1690, leaving widow Margaret 
and son 

John* Jackeon, whose grandson 

Richard^ Jackson had wife Esther and a daughter, 

Esther'' Jackson, b. 1774, d. 18/4, m. Joseph* Akerman. q. v. 

Thomas' Jackson married Hminah Johnson, a daughter of James 
Johnson, one of the Mason colonists of 1631. In 1678, Thomas Jackson 
dwelt on the soutli road. In 1684 he served on a jury, and in 1689 he 
signed the submission to Massachusetts. His daughter Mary married John 
Sherburne, and another daughter married Capt. Thomas Westbrook, the 
noted Indian fighter. His son Nathaniel was a " souldier att fourt W'" 
and Mary" in 1708. His sou Thomas dwelt at New Castle in 1738. 
Another son, 

Joseph' Jackson was a taxpayer, agreeable to the lists of 1717, 1726, 
1740. He died in 1743. His wife was Mary Sargent, born 1673, 
daughter of Benjamin Sargent of Portsmoutli. At the old Point of Graves 
cemetery may still be seen the inscription: "Mrs. Mary Jackson, widow of 
Joseph Jackson, died loth June 1763, aged 90." Children:

[The early portion from the Tuttle Family of New Hampshire, by Charles Wesley 
TuTTi.E, A.M., Ph.D., member of the N. E. Historic Genealogical Society.] 

Tuttle, or Tuthill, is a surname borne by families in New En£;land for 
more tlian two centuries. The English surnames, whence the surname 
Tuttle is derived, are Tothill or Tuthill, ancient family names in England. 
These surnames are said to be taken from names of old localities in Eng- 
land and Wales. 

Tuttle, the American surname, came to be generally adopted by the 
second and thii'd generations of descendants of the emigrant settlers, 
although some branches continue to this day to adhere to the ICnglisli form 
of the surname. The second syllable of the P^nglish surname passed 
through every possible change of spelling before it finally settled into its 
present form, " tie." 

John Tuttle, the ancestor of the New Hampshire family of Tuttles, 
settled in Dover sometime between 1633 and 1640. Tradition says he had 
a brother who settled in Connecticut, otherwise it is not known that he was 
connected with those who came in the "Planter" to Boston. There is a 
tradition current among his descendants that he came to Dover from 
Wales; another tradition says he came from the western part of England. 
A coat of arms, in possession of one branch of the family, corresponds with 
the arms of the Tothill families of Devonshire, England. Arms: "■ Az, on 
a bend or, cortised or, a lion passant sable. Crest: on a mount vert, a 
cornish chough proper, in its beak a branch of olive, fructed or." These 
arms were borne by the Tothill family of Peamore, Co. Devon. Other 
families in Plymouth and P^xeter, Co. Devon, and in London, bore arms 
differing but slightly from those of the Peamore family. John Tuttle's 
descent from the Devonshire family is inferred from the possession of these 
arms by his descendants, and his probable origin in that part of Elngland. 

Besides, it is a well known historical fact that the planters who settled 
in Dover, between 1633 and 1640, consisted of "families in the west of 
England, some of whom were of good estates, and of some account for 
religion." As John Tuttle is here aptly described, so far as estate and 
religion are concerned, it may be safely concluded, from all the facts, 
as to the place whence he came. No attempt has yet been made to trace 
out his connection in England, there being still hope that the private papers 
of his son, Judge Tuttle, may be discovered, and throw more light on this 
subject of enquiry. All that is here related of him and his children is 
derived from public records in New Hampshire. 

The history of John Tuttle began with the appearance of his name, in 
1640, among the names of the principal citizens of Dover, on a protest 
against the project of Underbill to place the little republic of Dover under 
the jurisdiction of Massachusetts. It has been inferred that the signers of 


this protest were the royalists and Church of Enghind men of the settle- 
ment, who favored the political and religious views of Mason and Gorges, 
rather than those of the Massachusetts Puritans. 

John Tuttle selected for his residence a charming site on the east side of 
Dover neck, " bounded with the river on the east, the lott of Thomas 
Bearde on the south, and the greate High Streete " on the west. This site 
is about forty rods s.s.e. of the first church — the fortifications about which 
are still plainly visible — in what is now Henderson's field. As it was de- 
signed to build a "compact town " on this neck, the land was laid out into 
house lots and streets, "one quarter of an acre" being called a "house 

The planters built their houses and dwelt here, " it being a fine, dry and 
and healthy situation, so high as to command all the neighboiing shores, 
and affoid a very extensive and delightful prospect," while their plantations 
were farther off in less protected places, where there was more room, 
John Tuttle owned eiglit acres of this prospective city, on which he lived 
and died in 1663, with a belief, probably, that his posterity would be en- 
riched "beyond the dreams of avarice" by this investment. His planta- 
tion was on the " west side of Back river, adjacent to the three creeks." 
It is now owned and possessed by Samuel Tuttle, Esq., a descendant of the 
sixth generation, having always been owned and possessed by the Tuttles. 
This plantation embraced "lot No. 7" of the "twenty acre lots," which 
was laid out to John Tuttle in 1642. It is the only one of these well 
known twenty-four "twenty acre lots," laid out to as many persons in 
1642, that is now and always has been owned by the descendants of the 
first grantee. Besides this, he owned thirty acres of the "400 upland on 
the Great Bay," and had granted hitn by the town a parcel of land which 
was laid out to his son, Judge Tuttle, in 1706. He is styled in the public 
records "John Tuttle, Planter," the last half of the surname l)eing written 
in all manner of ways. He seemed to have communicated to his posterity 
a bias for his own calling, for, with but a few exceptions, his descendants 
to this day have been " husbandmen," tenaciously holding on to landed 
property, as illustrated by the fact of the uninterrupted ownership of the 
farm, which he owned and cultivated more than two hundred years ago, by 
his descendants. 

John Tuttle died intestate in May or June, 1663, leaving a widow 
Dorothy and three children. He was probably not far from forty-five years 
of age at his death. She was appointed administratrix of her husband's 
estate, and made return to the court June 30, 1663. Although cut off by 
death in the prime of life, soon after he settled in this wilderness, his per- 
sonal property inventoried shows him to have been a well-to-do planter. 
The court decreed a distribution of the estate, reciting in its decree "yt the 
eldest daughter of the deceased is married and hath her portion already; 
that the youngest daughter is to have 15 pounds when she comes to the age 
of 18 years, or be dispossess of on marrying." The bulk of the property, 
consisting of real estate, was given to the only son then living, John,' 
"when he comes to 21 years of age." The widow Dorothy was taxed for 
several years after, but nothing further is known of her, nor is it known 
whether she married her husband in England or here. Children : 

i. Elizabeth, ^2 m. before 1663 Capt. Philip Crommett. 

ii. Thomas, killed by a falling tree in youth. 

2. iii. John, b. 1046; d. June, 1720. 

iv. Dorothy, m. Capt. Samuel Tibbetts. 


2. John' Tuttlr was a man of distinction in civil and military life. He 
filled successively every public office witliin tlie gift of the citizens of Dover, 
and was, by appointment in 1695, Judge of Their Majesties' Court of 
Common Pleas, under the administration of Lt. Gov. Usher. He was 
Selectman of Dover in 1686-87-88; Town Clerk from 1694 to 1717; 
Town Treasurer in 1705 and other years following; member of the Pro- 
vincial Assembly in 1698-99, 1705-6-7. He was one of the six com- 
missioneis sent from Dover to the convention of 1689 to "meet with the 
commissioners of ye other towns of ye province, to confer about and resolve 
upon a method of government within this province." — (Dover Records.) 
The convention met at Portsmouth, and resolved to put the province, as it 
had been before, under Massachusetts, and it was done accordingly. In 
1705, Col. Richard Waldron and Judge Tuttle were the "two principal 
men " of Dover, chosen " to joyn with the repi'esentatives of said province, 
and them invested with full power to hear, del)ate, and determine matters 
relating to Mr. Allen's claim." — (Dover Records.) Besides acting in the 
public capacities named, he appeais to have been, during all this time, 
chairman of the board of public surveyors of land. He was one of the 
leading members of the church at Dover, While a member of the General 
Assembly in 1698, he and other members subscribed a declaration, declaring 
" that in the sacrament of the Lord's Supper there is not any transubstan- 
tiation of the Elements of Consecration thereof by any person, whatsoever, 
and that the invocation or adoration of the Virgin Mary, or any otlier saint, 
and the sacrifice of the mass, as they ai-e now used in tl>e church of Rome, 
are superstitious and idolatrous." The town records show a large number 
of special public trusts confided to him by his fellow citizens. In a military 
capacity, Judge Tuttle appears to have "done the state some service." 
Dover had one military company. Its officers were appointed by the 
Governor and Council, and were selected for their fitness, especially at this 
period when a bloody war was raging between the whites and the Indians. 
In 1689, he was lieutenant John Tuttle of this company; he had prol)ably 
been ensign some time before. In 1692, he was captain of this company, 
and remained so for about ten years. He was ever afterwards called 
" Capt. John Tuttle" in the public records. While captain, he had charge 
of all the military defences of Dover, and was often engaged with his com- 
pany, or with soldiers sent him, in scouting and hunting after the Indian 
enemy. The Council and Assembly records of these years show, to some 
extent, what his arduous military duties were while chief military officer 
of Dover. 

Judge Tuttle died in June, 1720, leaving a large estate, which he dis- 
posed of by will among his children and grandchildren. His wife Mary 
survived him, and was executrix of his will. Her family name is not 
known. Lieutenant Tristram Heard and captain Francis Mathews were 
named in the will as trustees of iiis grandchildren. Children :

3. Ensign John^ Tuttle, second son of Jurlge John and Mary Tuttle, 
married Judith, daughter of Ricliard and Rose (Stoughtoii) Otis, Hose 
and her brother, Sir Nicholas Stoughtoii. Bart., were the oiil}^ cliildreii of 
Anthony Stoughton, Esq., of Stoughton in Surrey, England. — (N. E. Hist. 
Gen. Reg., vol. v., pp. 179, 3o4.) Judith gave her third son the christian 
name of her uncle, Sir Nicholas. Stoughton has been a favoiite christian 
name among her descendants in the Tuttle line, a commemoration of the 
connection of the two families. Ensign John Tuttle held ^everal civil 
offices; he was ensign of the Dover military company. He is always re- 
ferred to as "John Tuttle, Jr., or Ensign Tuttle" in the records. He 
lived on the west side of Back river, about one mile from his father's, on 
the farm which his grandfather, John' Tuttle, owned in his lifetime, and 
which had descended to Judge* Tuttle, who probably designed to give it to 
his son, ensign^ Tuttle, had he lived to receive it, but gave it to that one's 
two eldest sons. 

He and his wife are buried in the old burial ground near the river. He 
owned a large tract of land iii the parish of Somersworth, and another at 
Tole End. Ensign Tuttle was cut off in the prime of life by the hand of 
the ''Indian enemy." On the 7th of May. while attending to some busi- 
ness at his mill on the upper falls of the Cochecho, accompanied by his 
eldest son, he was suddenly set upon by a party of marauding Indians, over- 
powered and slain. Thomas, his son, escaped. The Boston News Letter 
of May 12, 1712, has the following allusion to this attack of the Indians: 
"On Tuesday they (Indians) mortally wounded and scalped John Crommet 
of Dover; on Wednesday at Tole End Mill, about a mile from Col. 
Waldron's, Ensign Tuttle was killed." This melancholy tragedy recalls, in 
this connection, the fact that his wife Judith, at the time of the great 
massacre in Dover in 1689, when her fiither, brother and sister were slain, 
and her father's garrison burned by the Indians, was taken captive with her 
two sisters, all young girls, and carried away ; but the Indians being over- 
taken by a party of soldiers at Conway, on their way to Canada, Judith 
and her two young sisters were rescued from their captors and brought 
back to Dover. The untimely death of her husband left Judith a widow 
with six children, the eldest fourteen, and the youngest two years old. 
Their success in life indicates that she was a woman of ability and 
intelligence. Children :

first, Deborah Hunt; second. Bertha Davis. He settled in that part of 
Dover which is now called Lee. He subsequently removed to Nottingham, 
where he died in 1793, and where his descendants have been numerous. 
His grandfather, Judge Tuttle, gave him lands on the east side of Dover 
neck " lying and being between Leftenant Beard's land and Nutter's and 
the High Street on the west and the river on the east." This tract of land 
included the homestead of John Tuttle, the first settler. Nicholas sold this 
land to Judge Millett in 1735. Children :

From an article in the N. E. Hist. Gen. Reg., vol. v.. p. 177, by the late Houatio Nelsox 
Otis, of Yonkers, N. Y. 

Few families in New Hampshire or elsewhere suffered more from the 
constant and cruel assaults of the Indians than the family of Richard Otis. 
He, himself, with one son and one daughter, was killed in 1689, his wife 
and child captured and sold to the French. At the same time a numher of 
his grandchildren were carried captives, and a few years after some of his 
children and grandchildren were killed, and others made prisoners b}' the 
Indians. In a word, every one of his children (alive in 1689) and many 
of his grandchildren, what few escaped with their lives, suffered in their 
persons and property from the warfare of the savage foe. They live<l 
in constant peril and alarm; their houses were fortified for defense 
against the red men, and in their acts of devotion they carried their 
arms in their hands. Richard Otis, it is generally supposed, was the 
son of Stephen Otis, whose will, dated 1 637, and recorded in the con- 
sistorial Episcopal court of Wells, county of Somerset, Englaiul, men- 
tions one son, Richard, three daughters and a wife. His grandfather, 
Richard Otis (see N. E. Hist. Gen. Reg., vol. iv., p. 163), was of Glaston- 
bury, county of Somerset, England, and his will, dated November, 1611, 
mentions Stephen, John and Thomas, and two daughters, leaving a wife. 

Richard Otis was first mentioned in New Enghmd in 1655, when he 
was admitted an inhabitant of Bo^.ton. The same year he was at Dover 
among the list of those qualified to vote. It is probable he went to 
Dover in 1655, as it was the usage at that time to convey lands to 
actual settlers at the time of settlement. He built his garrison house 
on the north side of the river, about half way up to the great hill, now 
called " Garrison hill." It was surrounded with heavy timber walls, and 
the doors were secured with bars and bolts. To it the neighbors re- 
paired for safety at night, or on alarms. He was taxed at Cochecho in 
1656, and so onward. 

He was one of those who, about 1660-65, were much dissatisfied with 
the church at Dover. The opinions of the Quakers were spreading 
there, and the cruel severity of their opposers drove many away from 
the church who merely sympathized with the Friends. Tlie grand jury 
presented, 30 June, 1663, "Richard Oatis and his wife and his servant 
maide for not coming to meeting for seueral m° together. Tlie court 
finds 13 days that Richard Oatis omitted coming to meeting and sentence 
him to pay 5* per day is 3£ 5^" The wife received the same sentence 
" and fees off court." The case of the " maide " was referred to the 
Associates. Richard Otis was not a Quaker, but his son Richard becaiue 


one. Richard Otis was one of the selectmen of Dover in 1660. His 
first wife was Rose, dangliter of Anthony Stouji'hton, and sister of Sir 
Nicholas Stoughton, Bart., whom he married as early as 1661. His second 
wife was Sliuali, widow of James Heard, and his third was Grizet Warren. 
By his first wife he had seven children; by his third, two daughters. 

On the nigiit of Thursday, tiie 27th of .June, 1689, the Indians surprised 
two of the garrison houses at the upper settlement of Dover at Cochecho 
falls. Maj. Waldron was brutally murdered, and Richard Otis was shot 
as he was rising up in bed. His daughter Hannah, two years old, was 
killed by dashing her head against the cliamber stairs. Stephen Otis, who 
dwelt on a farpi next above his father's, was also killed. The wife and 
infant child of Richard Otis, with the children of his son Stephen and 
others, twenty-nine in all, wei-e carried captive to Canada and sold to 
the French. They were the first English prisoners ever carried to that 
country. Three daughters of Richard Otis by his first wife, then young, 
were also taken, but were recaptured in Conway by soldiers who pur- 
sued them. It was the custom of the Indians to divide their prisoners 
in different paities and to take them to Canada by different routes. 

Rose Stoughton, the first wife of Richard Otis, was the daughter of 
Anthony Stoughton. an ensign in the Parliamentary army. Sir Nicholas 
Stoughton says of his father, '"he was a Puritan and very strict liver." 
In 1643, about to die, he entrusted his daugliter (then fourteen years old) 
to his kinsman, Captain Israel Stoughton of Dorcliester, Mass., to bring 
to New England out of the perils of the civil war then raging. 

Our descent from the above is: 

Richard* Otis married 1st, Rose Stoughton; 2d, Shuah, widow of James 
Heard; 3d, Griselda Warren, daughter of James and Margaret Warren 
of Kittery. Children :

IMore recent research has found in the records of the Consistorial Court, 
Somersetshire, England, wills which we abstract, viz: 

Richard Otis, of Glastonbury, made his will 17 November, 1611. He 
bequeaths to sons, Stephen and John, two daughters and his wife. 

Steplien Ottis, of Glastonbury, made his will in 1637, and mentions son 
Richard, daughters Frances, Judith, Hannah, and wife Elizabeth. 

Here, perhaps, in uncle and nephew, we may trace John of Hingham, 
Mass.. and Richard of Dover, N. H. 

Glastonbury is an ancient English market town, the location of an early 
introduction of Christianity, where the miraculous thorn blossomed on 
Christmas Day and where King Aithur was buried.

From 1638 onward, many Baileys are on record as anivinij at Salem, 
Lynn, Newbury, Rowley, Salisbury, Watertown and Weymontii in Massa- 
chusetts; at Scarborough in Maine; at Hartford, New London and New 
Haven in Connecticut; Newport in Rhode Island, and at Southampton on 
Long Island. A very earnest and active research is at present progressing 
among descendants of these various emigrants, but we regret to say that we 
have not definitely ascertained from which branch came the Baileys of Green- 
land and Newington, N. FL, from which we derive descent. 

Thomas Bailey and wife Eunice were at or near Greenland. N. H., in 
1734. George Bailey was a soldier in Kinslagh's company, and Nathaniel 
Bailey in Perkins's company, Louisburg expedition, 1745. Jonathan and 
Sarah (wife) Bailey sell land in Greeidand, 1767. These are, doul)tless, the 
parents of Jonathan Bailey jr. The father was one of the petitioners in 1783 
for separate representation in the Legislature, and father and son, in 1789, 
signed a petition for the New Castle (Great Island) bridge. 

1. Jonathan' Bailey was a farmer at Greenland, N. H., where he died 

1808 or 1809, as, in March of the latter year, his estate of forty 
acres of land, two pews in the church, &c., passed to his widow,

Nutter Cincage. 

The Nutters are a family settled, from the earliest days of tlie white 
man's occupation, at Dover, N. H. and the places planted by that expanding 
settlement. They have been husbandmen, sailors, fishermen; with notable 
examples in the trades and employments of south-eastern New Hampshire. 
Of good judgment in woodcraft, as well as lands, and of lasting enduring 
qualities as seamen, they have been thrifty. Contented in their abundance, 
unpretentious for affluence or station, they have constituted a numerous class 
of the sturdy citizens whose firmness, constancy and reliability have given 
character to New Hampshire men. One looks in vain for their names on 
college catalogues or state prison rolls; and they are seldom found in pro- 
fessional or official life. Their active pursuits have been in the open air, 
and their grey hairs have found rest in quiet graves. 

We avail ourselves of a valuable historical article, contributed forty 
years ago to the Dover ( N. FI. ) Enquirer, by Rev. Dr. Quint, the most 
competent living authority on early New Hampshire events, as a foundation 
for the following sketch, enlarged and extended by wide research in public 
records and family papers. 

Hatevil^ Nutter was born in England about 1603, as appears from 
his deposition regarding some disputed land titles. He was, probably, one 
of the company of persons "of good estates and of some account for reli- 
gion" who were induced to leave England with Capt. Wiggins in 1635, 
with the design to found on Dover neck, a " compact town," which was 
never built. He testified in the aforesaid deposition that he was here in 1637. 
His homestead in 1637 was rebounded in 1640, thus: "Butting on ye 
fore River East (this was the river Newichiwannock), and on ye west upon 
ye High Streete, on ye north upon ye lott of Samewell Haynes, and on ye 
south upon the lott of William Story." He owned also a lot on the west 
side of Back river, and at various times received grants of land in localities 
then certain, but now undefinable. His house stood about fifteen rods 
n. u. 6. from the nearest corner of the lower school house on Dover neck. 
On the spot of the old cellar two pear trees are no.v standing. He was a 
Ruling Elder in the first Dover church, and, occasionally, a preacher. 

In 1643, the Elder had a grant of Land between Lamprill and Oyster 
rivers, which was laid out in 1662 to Antony, his son. He had a "grant 
of 200 ackers next Wm. Sheppulds, for a farm," 2 February, 1658. In 
April, 1669, he gave the " Welchman's cove" property to his son Antony, 
and after his death to Antony's son John. He gave to .John Winget, hus- 
band of "Daughter Mary," land, etc., on Dover neck, 13 February, 1670. 

The Elder was a very respectable man, indeed. He filled various offices 
in church and state, and possessed a reasonable share of this world's goods. 


These considerations procured for him that respect which the moral worth 
of a rich man always excites. When business was shick, the Elder some- 
times amused himself with the old fashioned pastimes which age has abol- 
ished. That the Elder did really indulge in the manly recreations of the 
year of grace, 1662, is inferred from a statement of the Quaker historian, 
Sewell. After recounting the history of some Puritanic amusements, he 
says, "and all this {i.e. the whipping) in the presence pf one Hatevil 
Nutter, a Ruling Elder, who stirred up the constables to this wicked action, 
and so proved tliat he bore a wrong name." The Elder died in a good old 
age. His will was dated 28 December, 1674 (he being "about 71 years 
of age"), and proved 29 June. 1675. To his "present wife, Annie," he 
gave" the use of his dwelling house, orchard, marsh in Great bay. etc., all 
of it to go to his son Antony after her decease. To his son Antony he 
gave the mill grant at Lamprey river; one third of the "movables," etc.; 
and one fourth of his 200 acres of land in " Cochecho woods"; marsh east 
of Back river; and the other third of the personal property. Children :

iii. Elizabeth, who m. Thomas Leighton, and d. in 1674.

And probably others. //cf<^ d^^ ^^ ^f^ ^^O^f' 

2. Anthony' Nutter was born in England in 1630. His wife, '^^^-^'^ Z^'^' ''''•^- 
Sarah, was a daughter of Henry Langstaflf.y* They dwelt for a 
time at Dover neck, but soon removed to Welchman's cove, across 
the river, and settled at what became Newington. He exercised a 
wider influence in public affairs than ever his father did, and filled 
higher stations. In 1662, lie was admitted Freeman; in 1667, was 
"corporall"; and, in 1683, " leftenant," by which latter title he is 
commonly known, historically. He was selectman, a member of 
the General Coui t of Massachusetts, and of the General Assembly 
of New Hampshire, and in 1681-2, was a member of the provincial 
Council. While a member of the New Hampshire legislature, he 
was a witness to the brawl between Robert Mason, proprietor of the 
province, and Walter Barefoot, the deputy Governor, on one side, 
and Thomas Wiggins, a son of Capt. Thomas Wiggins of Dover. 
The scuffle took place 30 December, 1685, at Barefoot's house on 
Great island in Portsmouth harbor. Nutter did not participate in 
the difficulty, as Wiggins was individually sufficient to throw first 
Mason, and then Barefoot, literally upon the fire. A servant maid 
gave testimony, at the trial of Wiggins for the affair, that " a tall, 
big man, named Antony Nutter, wlis walking about the room in a 
laughing manner, but did not give any assistance nor endeavor to 
part them." 

Anthony Nutter died of small pox, 19 February, 1686. His wife 
survived him. Children : 

3. i. JOHN.^ 

4. ii. Hatkvil.

. Hatevii.^ Nutter, in 1713, with other inhabitants of Bloody Point, 
petitioned Gov. Dudley and the General Court that they '• by main- 
taining the minister, school and poor among ourselves, may be ex- 
empted from all other charges save only the province tax." This 
petition resulted in the establishment of Newington, so named by 
the governor 12 May, 1714. Mr. Nutter was twice married. By 
his first wife he had four children, and by his second wife, Leah 
Furber, whom he married 16 May, 1716, and who was his widow, 
he had five others. He died in 1745. Children:

Pickering £incagc. 

Among the names of the passengers by the " William anrl John," 
Capt. Rowland Langram, appears that of John Pickering, aged 25 years. 
Whether this be the carpenter who is the known ancestor of the Ipswich 
and Salem family, or John of Portsmouth, is difficult, perhaps impos- 
sible to determine. John, of Strawberry Bank, from whom we derive 
issue, was there as early as 1633, as appears by his receipt given in 
settlement of accounts to Ambrose Gibbons. Possibly, he was at Cam- 
bridge in 1 G38 and '42. His farm rested on the shore of the l^iscataqua 
river, northward from the South Mill creek, and for a long time was 
known as Pickering's neck. In 1640, he, with others, gave fifty acres 
as a glebe for the Queen's Chapel; the point of Graves was also a 
portion of his property. In 1658, he built the south mill, being con- 
ditioned by the town for a foot way over his dam for the passage of 
the people in going to meeting. In 1G55, he was granted "the land 
lying between Swaden's Creek and Pincomb's Creek, in the Great bay," 
which lay within the present bounds of Newington. He was a member 
of the " combination," the original government at Strawberry Bank. 
In 1643, appears the following entry in the Court record: 

"John Pickering is injoyned to deliver the old combination at Straw- 
berry Bank the next Court." 

His son, Capt. John Pickering, a carpenter, was a leading man in 
church and state at Portsmouth, was the south miller, commander of the 
port company, member of the Assembly and speaker, moderator and 
attorney before the courts. 

John Pickering, senior, died 18 January, 1669. He had wife Mary. 
Children : 

i. Mauy, b. at Cambridge, 5 November, 1G38. 

ii. John, b. at Portsmouth, 1640; m. Mary, daughter of Anthony 

Stanyan of Hampton; d. 1721. 

iii. Abigail, b. 22 April, 1642. 

iv. Rebecca. 

2. V. Thomas. 

vi. Sarah. 

2. Thomas' Pickering inherited the Newington property of his 
father; married Mary (tradition says her name was Gee) ,^ re- 
moved to the Swadden's creek farm, and commenced building 
his house. For two centuries, this home and property remained 
in the possession of his lineal descendants. He was a man of 
unusual physical strength, which became so developed, while he 
was assisting his father at the mill, that he could carry, with a 
firm step, eleven and a half bushels of corn, piled upon his back, 
up the steep grade to the mill floor. Brewster, in his " Rambles 



about Portsmouth," relates the following incident: "While he 
was clearing his land on the bay, an English man-of-war came 
into the harbor of Piscataqua. A press gang was sent on shore 
to obtain recruits. Two of them met Thomas Pickering felling 
trees. They conversed with him and, complimenting his muscular 
appearance, commanded him to leave his work and follow them. 
Thomas declined on the plea that he had a young family and 
was needed at home. ' No excuse, sir, march ! ' were words 
which the lord of the forest could not brook, — so, seizing one by 
the hack of his neck with his left liand, he placed his face on 
the ground, with his right hand he raised his axe as if to chop 
off the fellow's head. The other, terrified, seized Thomas's arm 
and begged for mercy. Thomas permitted the arrogant fellow to 
rise, and they hastened to escape from such a lion's power. 

In 1686, John and Sarah Fabyan deeded to Thomas Pickering 
"30 acres of upland and 6 acies of salt marsh, formerly called 
Swadden's marsh and Herod point, upon the eastward side of 
Great bay, adjoining said Pickering's neck of land." On the 
Swadden creek, on both sides of which his land now lay, Thomas 
Pickering erected at the head of the tide a mill, the remains of 
which are yet to be shown. This gave the name of Mill creek 
to the little brook. In 1716, Thomas gave to his son, James, 
land "bounded by Swadden's creek," and in 1719 he gave his 
son Thomas the farm on which stood his dwellings and buildings. 

Thomas Pickeiing made his will in August, 1719. It was 
proven in April, 1720. His wife Mary survived him. Children: 

3. i. .Tames, a b. about 1680. 

4. ii. Joshua. 

iii. Thomas, b. 28 November, 1703; m. 1st, Mary Downing, and 2d, 
Mary Janvi'in. He d. 9 December, 1786. Was ancestor of 
William Pickering, State treasurer of New Hampshire, and U. S. 
collector of the port of Portsmouth. 

3. James" Pickkring, born near 1680, was a lieutenant in the French 
war, and, like his father, a farmer at Newington, filling local town 
offices, such as selectman, etc. He was married as early as IH^,- 
and died in 1768. Children: ^^ //^ 72L^)lct^/^^

The property on Swadden's creek was long occupied as the 
Pickering property, and was the scene of activity and enterprise. 
Miss Tliompson says it " is now utterly silent and desolate. 
There is only a cluster of tall chestnuts and pines on the shore, 
which overshadow a few hillocks, where the early Pickerings are 
buried, on the very edge of the water, looking off over Great 
bay towards the southern shore of Durham, N. H. — a spot beau- 
tiful and solitary, abandoned to Nature, where it seems good to 
rest and await vitam venturi scecuU."

Henry-' Adams, the senior of this line in America, was among the 
early settlers. In 1641, he was granted hy the town of Boston forty acres 
in what afterwards became Braintree. As the custom prevailed to grant 
four acres per head to a family, it is judged that Henry Adams had a wife 
and eight children. He was buried at Braintree, now Quincy, Massa- 
chusetts, 8 October 1646. His will was probated in June, 1647, and names 
five sons and one daughter, vix. : Peter, John, Joseph, Edward, Samuel 
and Ursula. The will is printed in the New-England Historical and 
Genealogical Register, 7 January, 1853, vol. vii., p. 35. Three other 
sons, well known, were not mentioned in the will. Children : 

i. Henry-, b. 1604 in Eng-laud, settled at Medfield, d. 1676. 

ii. Thomas, b. 1612 in England, settled at Chelmsford, d. 1688. 

iii. SAMri:i>, b. 1617 in England, settled at Chelmsford, d. 1666.

viii. Edward, b. 1630; settled at Medfield, d. 1716. 

ix. Ursula ; unknown beyond her father's will. 

Of the history of Henry Adams in England nothing is, to-day, certainly 
known. A Henry Adams, aged 33, of St. Michael's parish, Cornhill, 
London, was married 12 Dec. 161)1* to Elizabeth Newman, aged 17, 
daughter of Thomas Newman, deceased, with consent of her mother. 
John Adams, ex-President of the United States, in 1817 erected a granite 
column in the burial ground at Quincy, with the following inscription: 

"In memory of the HENRY A^AMS who took his flight from the 
Dragon persecution in Devonshire, P^ngland, and alighted with eight sons, 
near Mount Wollaston. One of the sons returned to England and, after 
taking time to explore the country, four removed to Medfield and the 
neighboring towns; two to Chelmsford. One only, Joseph, who lies here 
at liis left hand, remained here, who was an original proprietor in the 
township of Braintree, incorporated in 1639. 

" This stone and several others have been placed in this yard by a great- 
great-grandson, from a veneration of the pietjs humility, simplicity, pru- 
dence, patience, temperance, frugality, industry and perseverance of his 
ancestoi-.s, in ho^jes of recommending an imitation of their virtues to their 

John Quincy Adams, also an ex-President of the United States, did not 
concur in his father's belief that Henry Adams was from Devonshire; but 
thought it more likely that he came, about 1634, from Braintree, Essex 
county, England, with Mr. Hooker's company, first settled at Roxbury; see 
Wiiithrop's Journal, I.: 37. Historical students generally accept this latter 
view, but open to determination by further research and discovery of 
authentic record in England. 


Joseph^ Adams, b. 1626; m. 2 Notemfeer 1650, Abigail Baxter, b. 
at Roxbury September 1634, daugbter of Gregory and Margaret 
(Paddy) Baxter. Her fatber, doubtless from a family long estab- 
lisbed in tbe county of Norfolk, was among tbe earliest comers to 
the Bay colony, arriving in 1630 and settling at Roxbury. In 
1640, he removed to tbe point in the present city of Quincy, where 
he continued as a landholder till his death, 21 June, 1659. Her 
mother was a sister to William Paddy, Treasurer of Plymouth 
colony 1640-53. She d. 13 February, 1662. Joseph Adams was 
a maltster, in which business his posterity continued to the end of 
the provincial era. In his will be bequeathed to Peter, his youtigest 
son, his dwelling house, malt house and the most of his property; 
to Joseph, only a single acre of salt marsh; to John, a Boston 
merchant, forty pounds and ten bushels of apples every year that 
he should send for them. The furniture was divided among his 
daughters. Mr. Adams often filled town offices, such as highway 
surveyor and selectman. His wife d. 27 August, 1692, and he d. 6

Joseph'' Adams, born 24 December, 1654, married (1) 20 February, 
1682, Mary, born ;?7 August, 1662, probably daughter of Josiah and 
Mary Chapin. Mr. Chapin was first at Weymouth, then at Braintree, 
freeman 1678, and finally at Mendon, where be was ensign and the 
first representative after Philip's war. They had two daughters, i. 
Mary, and ii. Abigail, when 14 June, 1687, Mrs. Adams died. 
Mr. Adams married 1688 (2) Hannah, born 22 June, 1667, daugh- 
ter of John and Ruth (Alden) Bass of Braintree. She died 24 
October, 1705. Like his father, Joseph was maltster and selectman 
at Braintree, where he died 12 February, 1737. His widow died 
February 1739. She was a third wife, named Elizabeth, and the 
mother of one son. Children : 

t. iii. Joseph,'* b. 1 January, 1689. 

iv. John, b. 8 February, 1691, father of Pres. John Adams.

X. Ebenezek, b. 30 June, 1704. 

xi. Caleb, b. May, 1710; d. June, 1710. 

By his will he left the bulk of his estate to his sons John and 
Ebenezer, remembering the other boys with small legacies, and 


mentioning tliat he had before apportioned them, especially Joseph, 
to whom he had given "a Liberal Education." 

Joseph* Adams, born 1 January, 1689, was graduated A. B. at 
Harvard College 1710, in a class of fourteen, among whom were 
Prof. Wigglesworth and librarian Denisoii. Nine of the class 
were ordained. Mr. Adams outlived all his classmates. After 
leaving college he became the town schoolmaster at Braintree, and 
we read in the town records: 

"28 November, 1710. Then Voted that Mr. Adams the present 
School master be impowered to demand a Load of wood of each 
boy that comes to school this winter." 

He soon prepared himself, by the study of theology, for the service 
of the church, and was ordained 6 November, 1715, and installed 
in the ministry at Newingtoii, N. H., where he remained till Janu- 
ary 1783, when he was in his ninety-fourth year, having been a 
minister for sixty-eight years. The Newington records show 
that 20 June, 1713, sixteen acres on the north side of Stoney hill were 
given by the parish to Rev. Joseph Adams, minister of the parish, 
in consideration of the great love, affection and respect they had 
and did bear to him, &c., upon condition of his continuance with 
them as long as life is continued, or he is able to officiate with them 
as a minister. In 1721 Sarah, widow and relict of James Levitt, 
conveyed to Joseph Adams, preacher of the Gospel, 40 acres some- 
what westerly on y'' river that runs into Great bay, at or near a 
place called Dumpling cove. This was adjoining Mr. Adams' 
farm. Rev. Joseph Adams died at Newington 26 May, 1783. 
Before his time, no other pastorate had continued so long in that 
state. In 1757 a sermon of his on the death of John Fabian, a 
leading citizen and representative of Newington, was published, and 
in 1760 another on the necessity of rulers exciting themselves 
against the growth of impiety. 

Mr. Adams married (1) 13 October, 1720, Elizabeth, widow of 
Janvrin, born 8 July, 1689, daughter of John and Bridget (Sloper) 
Knight of Newington, who was the mother of his children. She 
died 10 February, 1757. and Mr. Adams married (2) 3 January, 1760, 
Elizabeth Brackett. of Greenland, a descendant of Capt. Anthony 
Brackett, who was of the Mason company, 1631. Children: 

i. Elizabeth,* b. 13 October, 1721; d. 13 February, 1722. 

ii. Joseph, b. 17 January, 1723; m. Johanna, daughter of Maj. Ezekiel 
Gilman of Exeter. Rev. John Adams, a celebrated Methodist 
minister, was a grandson. 

iii. Ebenezrr, b. 4 September, 1726; m. Louisa Downing; d. Novem- 
ber, 1767. 
. iv. Benjamin, b. 18 January, 1728. 

Benjamin* Adams was born 18 January, 1728; married 6 June, 
1751, Abigail Pickering, born 6 June, 1733, daughter of Lieut. 
James Pickering of Newington, a grandson of John Pickrin the 
emigrant of 1633 at Strawberry Bank, as Portsmouth, N. H., was 
then called. He served his country in Captain Abijah Smith's com- 
pany, enlisted out of Col. Enoch Hale's regiment. 

The following forcible and earnest letter from him regarding local 
irritations at Newington duiing the early days of the revolution, 
is published in the N. H. Town Papers, vol. xii., 723, 727 : 


To the Honourable Joshua AVentworth Esqr 

I understand you have not thoujiht me worthy of your Notic in nppniniinfc me a 
Justice of the Peace in the County, notwithstanding tlie Iniportunitise of my friends: and 
If my memory Serveth me Right you gave me Great Encouragement your Self but all I find 
is Subsided: I understand you had the advice and Councel of Hushai: who Counccied 
against Ahitophe! which has turned against me liy my Enemies I know them and 1 Shnll 
Set a mark upon them as was Set upon Cain when he Slew his Brother Abel because his 
ways were Righteous and his wicked : I understand One Great 01)jection is that I was not 
friendly in the beginning of the Revolution. I confess I Did not Step forward at first for 
many (3ood Reasons which I Could oifer If time and paper would allow being acquainted 
with History both Civil and Sacred, I was afraid to act as forwardly as Some have Done Least 
I Should offend against God and the Dictates of my Own Conscience my Estate has Done 
Its part or more Sir you may Remember twelve Dollars in hard money being in your hands 
in a Lottery way you advanced to help the troops wlien In distress in Canaday and I was 
Paid in Paper with a Considerable Loss: I understand it is Olijected that there is two Justices 
in Newington It being a Small town two was Sitflcient I may Justly Say that there is 
not one Properly specking, for Richard Downing Esqr has not Taken the Oath nor will 
he If he must Pay a Dollar for his Commission as he told me him Self and the Other is as 
the Learned Observeth : Vox et preterea Nihil; I am afraid that yon Gentlemen in au- 
thority are Runing into the Old Error In promoteing of men without Knowledge or Good- 
ness and Neglecting men of Learning and Religion which is a great Error When the 
Righteous are in authority the People Rejoice : but when the wicked bire Rule the People 
mourn, another Objection is the people of Newington are against ino I kmnv it what is 
the reason It is not against my morral Carracter nor Capacity in a Civil "r UiiiMious way 
for I have Served them as a Church Officer more than thirty years mimI Xrai- twenty in a 
Civil List Sir I will give you a short Detail on the matter In the year 177>i tlic Select Men 
Cam to pay my father his Salary for one year which was one hiindreil Silver Dollers 
which they had Paid: for a Number of years and no more l)eing (niel y dt.e third of his 
Sailer)' yearly and the}' Brought him a hundred paper Dollers in the Lue there of which he 
Refused to Give them a Dischugc in full and the town Passed a Vote Not to Pay him any 
more Salary till he Did Give them a Discharge in full and they Paid him no mure to the 
time of his Death and I was In duty bound to Support him to the time of his Deiith ; and 
then to burrey him without any assistance from the town and Some years Since his Deith 
the town has Compounded with me and has Given their Security for though an Inferiour 
Sum which is the Cause of their Malice against me as to niv being an Enemy to my 
Countery I Deny the Charge I always was and Ever have Been Redy and willing to Defend 
it in person and Estate and am Now Redy and willing to Supi)ort Govennnent i)rovided I 
am properly treeted and promoted by those in authoi-ity or Otherwise I shall be Dis- 
couraged and Probeblly may let matters take their Course without ni' Inteimeddling in 
those matters I apprehend it is a poor time to mak Enemies against (iovernment the 
Countrey is full of them already to my Certain Knowladge and I fear the CmiMciuence If 
Som thing Is not Done speedily; for the President and Councel to hear the nonsensical 
Rabble against Men of Influence is Strange and Snrpriseing I Ever have Given my Vote 
for Corr Wentworth for a Senator and Ever Expected to Use" my Influence for him in that 
Office but If matters turn agains me in this way I have Done. I stepped forward the 
Other Day to Support Government and was the Second man to coll Brewster who stoped 
the In Surgents at the Bridg till we were properly Re in fcn-sed by General Silley and Others 
to the hasard of my Life and hors against their Naked bayonets, but the Poor mans 
Councel and assistance is Dispised as the Good old mans Councel was, that Saved the City 
which we have an account of in Scripture Sir by your keepitig Me out of power may pre- 
vent My Doing a Great Deel of Good to Government and my fellow men which I Should 
Rejoice to Serve Provided there is or may be proper Encouragement: two Justices in New- 
ington is too many: there is four in Greenland and two iu one house and No objection 
against it but two in Newington is too many 1 remember four Coroners appointed in New- 
ington Successively and not one of them Could Draw up an Inquisition without my help 
and Some in the Civil List are as Insufficient to Dis Charge their office without my assist- 
ance I think these things are an Error in those in Comand ; Sir I would not have you 
think I am Set up for a Dictator to those in Government I onely wist to show Matters in 
a Clear light Strictly Speaking I Do not want [tornj to any Set of men Onely I wish to be 
prouerly Respected by those in authority I am a free Citizen and am Dependent [torn] I 
shogid think that the recommendation of John Pickering Esqr and Other Gentlemen in the 
Nei hbouring towns of my acquaintance migt have more Influence in the Councel than 
the Rabble party in Newington I fear Government may be Called on again to Disperse 
the Insurgents and If that should l)e the caise I believe I Shal Endeavour to Sleep in a wiiole 
Skin and not medle where I have no authority but I hope nuitters will be to my satisfac- 
tion. I Sul)scribe My Self a true friend to Government and would Recommend to my 
Self and all imder my Influence to Rememl)er the words of the apostle Paul in 13th 
Chapter of Romans Let Every Soul be Subject to the higher Powers for the Powers that 
be are ordained of God and So onwards 

Bi:njamin AnAMS 
P. S. Sir If you Please you may Communicate these Lines to the President and Counce 
when you See them if you think best or otherwise. 


This mood of angry petulance seems to have subsided; for, in cooler lan- 
guage, he sent, not long after, the following, which is printed in the same 
collection : 

Newington, Dec- 28 : 1786 

Sir I Hnve been Informed that Some Expressions in the Letter I Wrote to j'ou some 
time past wlien Laid liefore the President and Counsel has Given some Umbrace to some 
tiemen in Comieel which I am Exceedingly Sorry for If any such Expressions were 
Looked on as affrontive I am sorry for It: I l3id not mean any such thing I must Confess 
I felt something warm against Some of my Enemies in my' own town when I wrote s* 
Letter and Did not thinlc so prudently as probably I might have Done All such Expres- 
sions as are Imprudent and affrontive I am Sorry for and do ask His Excellencies and the 
Councels Pardon praying that they may forgive Every thing that has been offered as affron- 
tive and Call it an error in Judgment or a Peccadillo and not a crime unpardonable lam 
Redy and willing to Sui)port Government and Defend it at this Critical time against all 
Invaders of our Sacred Rights: and should Rejoice to be Incouraged by authority so far 
that I might Do it with the Greatest charefullness: I beg you Honours would take my 
matter Into your Serious Consideration again and grant me my request; lad no more I 
Subscribe myself your true friend and Humble Servant at all tinies

The Ilasse family of England are of London. About 1630, with wife 
Ann and their eldest children, Samuel Bass canie to New England, settled 
at Roxbury, where he was one of the founders of the First Church,* was 
freeman 1634, and removed to Braintree in 1640, where he was the first 
deacon, an office which he held for more than fifty years. He was select- 
man and representative to the General Court for twelve years. The history 
of Quincy says : " Dea. Bass was a man of strong and vigorous mind, and 
one of the leading men of Braintree for many years. His wife, Ann, died 
5 September, 1693, aged 93. He died 30 December, 1694." The town

While the "Mayflower" was at Southampton, in August, 1620, re- 
ceiving stores and outfit for her voyage across the Atlantic, the Pilgrims 
engaged a young cooper, John Alden, to enter their service, to accom- 
pany tlie party and to remain a year with them, in the practice of his 
trade. He seems to have been alone in the world, for no research has 
revealed his kinfolks, his birthplace, or aught of his previous life. Be- 
fore the voyage had terminated, Alden cast in his lot with the emigrants 
and signed the agreement, or compact, which Bancroft, the historian, 
regarded as the origin of popular constitutional liberty. John Alden 
was then twenty-one years of age and he lived to be the survivor of 
all his fellow signers and, indeed, of all the Pilgrim band, except one^ , 
In 1621, he married Priscilla Mullins, orphan of Wjijliam Mullins, from 
Dorking in the County of Surrey, who with wife, son and servant, his 
whole family except Priscilla, had perished the first'' winter at Plymouth. 
Secretary Morton says Mr. Mullins was "a man pious and well de- 
serving, endowed also with a considerable outward estate." Up to mar- 
riage, Alden had been a member of the family of Capt. Myles Standish. 
Between these two, among the most important men of the colony, a 
firm friendship was established which lasted to the death of Standish, in 
1656. John Alden built his first residence on what is now Leyden 
Street, then called simply "the streete." In 1631, Alden and Standish 
were pioneers in the settlement of Duxbury, and there both dwelt to 
the end of their earthly lives. Alden's place was at^ Eagle-tree pond, 
north of Captain's hill. He diedo3,2 September, 1686/ His farm has 
ever been held by descendants to the present day. His bible is at Pil- 
grim Hall, Plymouth, and his snuff-box is in the possession of a lineal 
descendant. His house, a two storied square building, erected by his 
son Jonathan, in Duxbury, with some of the furniture he and Priscilla 
used, still stands. 

Though not of the band of Separatists at home, nor with them in 
Holland, John Alden became one of the chief men of Plymouth. After 
Gov. Carver, he was an assistant to every Governor of that Colony; 
was thirteen years its Treasurer, and eight years a Representative from 
Duxbury. A sound, solid Englishman, whose adze and hammer and 
plough, united in work with his spiritual energy and his unswerving 
loyalty, made his life a blessing to liis generation, and transmitted to his 
and their posterity, civil and religious liberty. Children :

of William Phillips. They were ancestors of Admiral James 
Alden, U. S. N. John d. U March, 1702.

servant, dyed the first winter. Only his daughter Priscihi survied, and 
maried John Alden, who are both living and have 11 children. And 
their eldest daugl)ter is maried, & hath five children." 

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, author of "The Courtship of Miles 
Standish," a beautiful poem, but inaccurate as to historical incidents,

Anothkr emigrant in the Mason company of 1631 was Henry Sher- 
burne. He was the second son of Joseph Sherburne of Odihara, Hants, 
who died in 1621, a descendant by a younger branch of the Sherburnes 
of Laiicasliire, on whose property, at the present day, is located the 
great Jesuit college in England, where the Romish priests receive their 
instruction. Henry Sherburne was the first senior warden of Queen's 
chapel, Portsmouth, now St. John's church. He married, 13 November,

xi. Ambros, b. 20 January, 1684. 

Mrs. Sherburne died 3 June, 1667, and Henry died in 1680 
or '4. Pie was a prominent citizen of early Portsmouth for 
fifty years; and the prominence of the family has continued 
through many generations. Judges, councillors, attorneys at the 
bar and in congress have borne the name to stations of honor 
and dignity. 

Of Mrs. Sherburne's father, Miss Thompson, in " Landmarks of 
Dover," says : 


Among the earliest settlers at Strawberry Bank we find Ambrose 
Gibbons. He was one of the agents sent over by Ca|)t. John 
Mason in the spring of 1630. He sailed in the bark "Warwick," 
and arrived before 21st July of that year. He first settled at 
Newichwannock (now Somersvvorth), where he established a trading 
post, built a saw mill, and attempted the cultivation of the grape. 
He had wife Pjlizabeth, and daughter Rebecca, who afterwards 
married Henry Sherburne, also one of Mason's colonists. Her 
grandson, the Hon. Henry Sherburne, married Dorothy, the sister 
of Lieut. Gov. John Wentworth. Her granddaughter, Bridget, 
daughter of Richard and Mary (Sherburne) Sloper^ married 29 
March, 1684, John Chevalier, otherwise Knight, q.v., who acquired 
Knight's ferry at Bloody point. 

Ambrose Gibbons belonged to tlie Dover combination, and 
27 September, 1648, was one of the five men chai-ged with the 
prudential affairs of the town. He was a selectman and a magistrate. 
5 October, 1652, he had a grant of the mill privilege at the head 
of Thomas Johnson creek. He was then living on the south side of 
Oyster river on land now owned by Col. Burnham, and adjacent 
to the tract of 200 acres granted him by the town at the above 
date. He btqueathed all his property to his grandson, Samuel 
Sherburne, son of his only child Rebecca. 

Ambrose Gibbons is said to have been buried at Sander's point, 
just across the bridge from the Wentworth at New Castle. 
Ambrose Gibbons died 1 July, 1656, and his wife^-died 14 May, 
1655, 'J^i^cu^/-.

There was an emigrant, named Knight, among the forty-eight sent 
over by Mason in 1631, A John Knight, who had a wife Leah, built 
a garrison house in Madbury, on the west side of Back river, whose 
plantation, purchased of Major Waldron in 1682, is mentioned as improved 
as early as 1694. He died early, and his widow married Benedictus 
Torr, who gave his name to the garrison house. Our lineage, however, 
springs from a John Knight who was, tradition says, a Huguenot refugee, 
Chevalier, who Anglicised his name on settlement in New Hampshire; 
and the i-ecord substantiates the tradition ; for, on the Portsmouth rate 
(or tax) list of 1681, occurs "John Chevalier and man." In 1702, John 
Knight of Portsmouth, alias Chevalier, bought the Carter farm at Pine 
point, now Newington. The same year, Benjamin and Sarah Bickford 
convey to John Knight, alias Chevalier, of Portsmouth, the meadow be- 
tween Pine point and Bloody point, next to land said Knight had bought 
of Richard Carter, with one fourth of the saw-mill. In 1705, Zachariah 
Trickey conveyed to John Chevalier, alias Knight, part of the land for- 
merly granted Thomas Tiickey, " where y"^ ferry is kept." Three months 
later the equipments for the ferry, " gondoloes," are also released to 
John Knight. The next month, Capt. John Knight petitioned the General 
Assembly for a license to carry on the " Bloody point ferry," setting 
forth that the ferries thence to Hiltons point, on Dover neck, and also 
to Kittery neck, were always holden by the inhabitants of the Trickey 
farm, which was now his property. The petition was granted, " he not 
demanding more than twelve pence for every horse and three pence for 
every single person without Horse, he always taking care that there be 
Boats always ready, that there be no complaint." In 1696, he served 
on a scout at Dover. In 1704, he was captain of the company raised 
on the south side of Piscataqua river for scouting. Bills in his favor 
for ferriage appear throughout the provincial accounts, 1699-1714. In 
February, 1717-18, John Knight and Bridget, his wife, conveyed to their . 
son, John, the Trickey property, with their dwelling house and all in- 
terest in the ferry at "Bloody Poynt." In 1721, he was selectman at 
Newington, which, incorporated as a parish, assumed all the functions of 
a town, and after a while was so recognized. He died in that year and 
was buried on his Pine point property, now known as Birch point. 
Miss Thompson, a descendant of John Knight, and the local historian, 
says : — In a wild, lonely spot is the grave of John Knight, the exile, 
shaded by sassafras trees and tall wliite birches, whose boles gleam afar 
off like shafts of polished marble. It is marked by a low, broad, three- 
lobed headstone of slate, on which is this inscription : 


" Here lyes buried the body of John Knight Esq"" born August y® 30th 
1659 and died May the 11th 1721." 

On a list of the inliabitants of Martinique, W. I., 1671, appear the 
names of Jean and Thomas Chevallier, who came to America' on account 
of their religion.

i. Elizabeth, b. 8 July, 1089. Rev. John Pike, minister at Dover,

The Tracys of P^iigland claim descent from a family at the castle and 
barony of that name, near Vire, in Normandy. William de Traci came to 
England in 1066, with the Conqueror, and his name is among those present 
at the battle of Hastings. A famous branch of the family was established 
at Barnstaple, in Devonshire, the male line of which became extinct early; 
then the name and honors were assumed and maintained by a son of Grace, 
daughter of Henry de Tracy, lord of Barnstaple, who had married John 
Sudley, lord of Sudley and Toddington, a great-grandson of Egbert, the 
first Anglo-Saxon king of all England. This son, William de Traci, was 
one of four nobles concerned in slaying Tliomas-a-Becket, the arrogant but 
austere prelate of Henry II. Thomas Fuller, in his Worthies of England, 
descril)es Traci as a " man of high birth and stomach, a favorite of the King 
and his daily attendant." In his daring and bravery originated the coup- 
let: — 

All the Tracys 

Have the wind in their faces. 

1. Stephen Tracy married, 1621, in Holland, Triphosa Le 

(the entry is blurred and undecipherable), where his first child was 
born. In 1623, the little family, father, mother and daughter, came 
in the Ann, Capt. Wm. Peirce, to Plymouth. At first he settled 
on the south side at Plymouth, and shared in the cattle division of 
1627. His name is on the list of "Freemen of the Incorporacon of 
Plymoth in New England, An: 1633." Soon he removed to Dux- 
bury, where, in 1634, he was appointed one of five "for Duxbery 
side," to lay out highways; was constable in 1639; and served as 
one of five "apointed from Duxburrough's side" to select a site for 
a meeting house; he served as a grand juror in 1637, 1640 and 
1642; and as an arbitrator, by order of the Governor and Assistants. 
Before 1 654, he had returned to England ; for a power of attorney 
is in print, authorizing John Winslow to dispose of Tracy's property 
in New England. This instrument is dated at London, 20 March, 
1 054-5. In it he calls himself of Great Yarmouth, a seaport, bor- 
ough and market town in county Norfolk, and mentions that he 
lias five children in New England. We find no farther record of 
him, and consider that he never returned to New England. Chil-

V. Some authorities mention Thomas, and seek to identify him with 
Lieut. Thomas Tracy of Norwich, who was too old a man to have 
been a son of Stephen. 

Richard Tracy, of Stan way, second son of Sir William and Margaret 
(Tlirockmorton) Tracy, of Toddington, county of Gloucester, was sheriff of 
that county in 1559. By marriage with Barbara, a daughter of Sir Tlioraas 
Lucy, Cliarlecote, Warwickshire, he liad three sons and three daughters, 
of whom the second son, Nathaniel, settled at Tewksbury, ou lands be- 
stowed by his fatlier. 

1. Thomas^ Tracy was born at Tewksbury, Gloucestershire, in 1610, 
a son of Nathaniel Tracy. In his early maidiood he crossed the sea 
to the colony of Massachusetts Bay. He stayed at Salem until 
23 February, 1637. Pie came over in the interests of Lords Say 
and Brook, from whom the town of Saybrook took its name. 

By 1644, Thomas Tracy had gone to Wethersfield, in Connecticut, 
as he served in that year on a jury at Hartford ; and is on record, 
the same year, as a sufferer by the thefts of Robert Bede. In 1649, 
the General Court appointed Thomas Traisy of Seabrook, on a 
committee. In 1652, and 1653, he was at Saybrook. In 1660, 
Uncas, the Mohegan sachem, rewarded Lieut. Thomas Letfmgwell, 
for an act of merciful kindness, with four hundred acres of land, and 
in this gift Thomas Tracy shared. The land was located at the 
junction of the Yantic and Shetucket rivers, now within the bounds 
of Preston, Conn. Thereupon Thomas Tracy removed his family, 
his vvife being deceased, with the congregation of Rev. James 
Fitch, from Saybrook to Norwich, and was one of the thirty-five 
first settlers at that point. His house lot was of nine acres, and 
situated near the Green, on the south side of the street. In 1661, 
he was on a committee appointed by the General Court, " to try the 
bounds of New London"; in 1662, he was chosen by the people, 
one of the court of Commission; in 1666, he was appointed "en- 
sign at Norridge"; in 1667, '70, '71, '72, '73, '75, '76 and '78, he 
was the deputy from Norwich to the legislature, and in 1682, '83 
and '85, from Preston. He sat as a member of the colonial assem- 
bly at more than twenty sessions. In 1673, he was appointed 
lieutenant of the forces raised in New London county to prosecute 
war against the Dutch and the Indians ; in 1674, was commissary, 
or quartermaster to the dragoons; and, in 1678, was appointed a 
justice. ^ 

Thomas Tracy was well educated for the time in which he lived. 
This placed him to advantage among the leading men of the colony 
directly upon his arrival. Throughout a long life, the legislature 
frequently appointed him upon important committees, and he held 
his full share of public offices, legislative, military and magisterial. 
He was a gentleman of consequence in the community, a thorough 
business man, and of the very best personal character. He left an 
estate of 5000 acres of land. A very numerous posterity have pro- 


ceerled from him, distinguislied as merchants, ministers, members of 
Congress, jufliies, &c., of vvliom tlie Hon. Benjamin F. Tracy of 
Brooklyn, N. Y., Secretary of the Navy under the administration of 
President Harrison, is a recent example. 

Tiiomas Tracy married, 1st, at Wetliersfield, 1641, Mary, widow 
of P>lward Mason. Slie was the mother of liis seven chihlren, and 
died at Saybrook. He married, 2d, at Norwich, before I G79. Martha, 
widow of Gov. Bradford's son, John, a daughter of Thomas Bourne, 
of Marshfield, Mass. He married, 3d, at Norwich, 1683, Mary,

The Stanberye vel Stanburye family bave been established in connty 
Cornwall, since the time of King Henry V., when coat armor was granted 
to Walter Stanbery, of Morwinstow. The seat of the family has been at 
Tamerton, a parish in the same connty, on the river Tamar. The family 
furnished a bishop to the see of Bangor in the middle of the fifteenth 
century. Modernly, they are found in Oxfordshire, under the spelling 
Stanbra, and in Devonshire at Barnstaple, where they have long flourished. 
Though the bulk of the Lynn (Mass.) settlers were Lincolnshire or York- 
shire men, they were not all, and Josiah Stanbery is thought likely to have 
come from Barnstaple. 

1. Josiah* Stanbury was an inhabitant at Lynn, Mass., 1638, and 
shared in the first allotment of lands; the entry reads: " Josias Stanbury 
100 acres." In 1640, Josiah Stanbury was one of the forty who, with 
Kev. Abraham Pierson, withdrew from Lynn and undertook the settlement 
of a new town at Southampton, L. I. The original undertakers were eight 
in number, who purchased a sloop for £80, of which Josiah Stanborough 
contributed £5. The early landing was at North Sea but, in February, 
1654, forty-one lots were taken up at Sagabonack, of which Mr. Stan- 
borough's was No. 33. Mrs. Stanborough, in right of Thomas Post, shared 
in lot No. 8. In 1647, Josiah Stambro was chosen Freeman. In 1651, 
at the laying out of the " Little Plain," Mr. J. Stanborough had No. 20. 
In 1644, the plantation was divided into four wards, " eleven persons in 
each ward." In this division, Mr. Stanborough is listed in the second 
ward. In 1653, squadrons of fifty men each were formed "for cutting 
up whales that might drift up upon the shores," and Mr. Stanborough's 
name is in the second squadron. In 1667, Peregrine Stanbrough's name 
replaces his father's in the second squadron. 

Josiah^ Stanbrough, Stansbrough or Stanbury, was twice married. By 
his first wife, he had two sons; and by the second, Alice, widow of Thomas 
Wheeler, who survived him, he had four children. He died in 1061.

This ancient Norman family were long settled at Goudere, in Normandy, 
now Ter Gouth, oi- Gouda, on the river Yssel in South Holland. In their 
dispersion, the name became LaGrand in France, Grote in England, and 
DeGroot in Holland. The most celebrated of the race was Hugo DeGroot, 
a native of Delft, better known under the Latin name of Grotius; his learn- 
ing was extensive and deep in politics, theology, literature and philosophy. 
His gieat work, de Jure Belli et Pact's, is the most profound treatise in the 
philosophy of jurisprudence and has long been an accepted classic. 

Of this race emigrants are recorded as arriving among the early Dutch 
settlers of New Amsterdam; William Pietersen deGroot, with a wife and five 
children, in the ship Hope, April, 1662, and Staes deGroot, in the ship 
Spotted Cow, in April, 1663, who settled on Staten Island. 

The DeGroots of New Jersey claim descent from Jacob' DeGroot, a 
French emigrant, who, with his wife, was dwelling at Hackensack in 1696. 
The church record says these "• brought letters from the French Church." 
As early as 1700, Jacob^ DeGroot and George Cussart purchased at 
Bound Brook, Somerset county, a tract of 1170 acres of land, which they 
divided equally between them, and upon the property built their houses. 

Rev. Titus Elwood Davis, A.M., in his valuable paper on F'irst Houses in 
Hound Brook, N. J., says : 

"Jacob DeGroot owned over 1,000 acres of land, all in one tract, though 
pui'chased of different parties, and at different times. His first purchase, 
of 585 acres, remained in the possession of the DeGroot family for 14.3 years, 
no portion of it being sold until after the death of Judge Jacob DeGroot, 
grandson of the original owner. The house was a frame building, a well 
built substantial structure, as were all the buildings of that period. It faced 
to the south, and had a large kitchen on the west end which was occupied 
by the slaves, of whom the DeGroot family always had a large number. 
One of these, known as Mammy Bets, lived to the extreme age of 115 
years. Jacob, John and Jacob DeGroot, father, son and grandson, had lived 
in this house one hundred and forty-three years."

Note.— Jean LaTourette, natif d'Osse en Beam, France, joined the French colony 
in New York, before l(i93. He married 16 July, 169?, Marie Mersereau, from Moise 
en Saintonae, and liad three children baptized in the French Protestant church, Marie, 
Jean and David, who married Catherine, daughter of Jacques Poillon, a justice of the 
peace on Staten Island in 1689. David and Pierre LaTourette were members of the French 
(Huguenot) church on Staten Island, in 1735. 

Jean Mersereau was a young Protestant Frenchman, noted for his personal strength. He 
was captain of a military company and was allowed to go armed. One evening he met 
three men, habited as friars, whom he .saluted with " Good evening, gentlemen." This they 
resented, as it proved him a Huguenot; for a good Catholic would have said "fathers." 
They drew sabres, which were concealed under their garb, and attacked him. He defended 
himself with success, killing one, wounding another and putting the third to flight. On his 
early decease, his widow and five children emigrated to America, designing to .settle in 
Philadelphia; but, owing to stress of weather, they were landed at New York. They set- 
tled on Staten Island, where the mother died and was buried in the French churchyard at 
Westfield. The family claim descent from Josue Mersereau, getierale de la Garde Royale, 
and Josue Mersereau, capilaine, Rochefort. 

Steele ^ineage. 

1. Georgk' Steele was an early inhabitant (1632) of Cambridge, 
Mass., residing at the corrier of Harvard and Dunster streets; was Free- 
man, 1634. He and his younger brother, John Steele, were of the party which 
removed with Mr. Hooker, to Hartford, on the Connecticut, where he was 
an original proprietor. His home-lot, on the west side of the present 
Washington street, extended from Capitol avenue to Park street. He was 
a soldier in the Pequot war, 1637, and a participant in tlie capture and 
destruction of the Indian fort. He was surveyor of highways at Hartford, 
1641, 1651; and on the board of selectmen in 1644. In September, 1642, 
George Steele was one of two appointed by the General Court to see that 
no calves were killed at Hartford, without their approbation. He died in 
1 664, " very aged." Children :

2. James' Steele, born in England, 1623; married, in 1657, Anna 
Bishop, daughter of John and Ann Bishop, of Guilford, Conn. In 1657-8, 
he served in the troop in the Pequot war, the first cavalry organized in 
Connecticut. In 1662, the General Court appointed him on a committee to 
lay out land at Hommanasett on the sound; in 1672, on a similar commit- 
tee to lay out a grant for meritorious service to corporal John Gilbert; 
the same year, he was appointed with others to run the line between Lyme 
and New London. A grant of 150 acres was made to him, in that year. 
In 1675, he was commissioned commissary of the Connecticut forces in 
King Philip's war, his salary being fifty pounds per annum. He built his 
house south of the little river at ITartford, which was one of the two houses 
fortified by the town, in 1689. His wife died in 1675,; and he married, 
after 1683, (2) Betliiah, widow of George Stocking, a daughter of John 
Hopkins. Children :

3 December, 1 648, daughter of Bartholomew and Sarah (Birchard) Bar- 
nard, and dwelt upon the south side of tlie river at Hartford. In 1705, he 
was lieutenant of the Hartford county dragoons, and in 1710 was commis- 
sioned captain; which position he held till his death in 1712. His widow 
died in 1730. Their son: 

4. Stephen* Steele was born at Hartford, 1696, graduated at Yale 
college, 1718; married,/ 1720, Ruth Porter, born at Hadley, Mass., 10 
November, 1701, daughter of Hon. Samuel and Joanna (Cook) Porter. 
He was the first minister at Tolland, Conn., commenced preaching in 1719, 
was ordained in 1723, and remained with that people till tlie connection 
was amicably dissolved, owing to his impaired health, in 1758. He died 4 
December, 1759; his widow died 14 May, 1792. Rev. Stephen Steele 
was a preacher of more than ordinary ability, as evidenced by his selection 
as preacher of the Annual Election sermon before the Governor and 
legislature. None of his writings were published. He commenced with 
his church in a wilderness and saw the town grow to a community of a 
thousand souls. Yet, during the whole forty years, there was never heard 
any dissentient voice to the wise, prudent and pious man, who had been 
ordained in their midst and remained there till death. Now, there are no 
descendants of the name at Tolland. They are found elsewhere, and par- 
ticularly in Vermont, as magistrates, legislators and judges. Children*.

The father of Thomas'' Thacher was the Rev. Peter^ Thacher, a native 
of Somersetshire, who matriculated at Queen's college, Oxford, 6 May, 
1603, at the age of 15; took his A.B. at Corpus Christi college, 1608; 
A.M. 1611 ; was vicar of Milton Clevedon, Somersetshire, 1616, of which 
Rev. Thomas Lambert was the incumbent, and rector of St Edmund's 
church, Salisbury, Wiltshire, 1622, where he continued the parson till his 
death, 11 February, 1640. 

1. Thomas' Thacher was born 1 May, 1620, at Milton Clevedon, Som- 
ersetshire, England, son of Rev. Peter and Anne Thacher. The 
patronage of the living, whereat his father was vicar, rested in 
Richard Rogers of Brainston, in Dorsetshire, whose attorney was 
Peter Thacher of Queen's Camel, a parish in Somersetshire, near 
Ilchester. The vicar of Queen's Camel for fifty years, from 1574 
to 1624, was a Rev. Peter Thacher, undoubtedly of the same family. 
Thomas Thacher came to Boston in his boyhood, arriving 4 June, 
1635. He was a nephew of Antony Thacher, whose name is per- 
petuated in an island in Salem, Mass. harbor, the scene of a sad 
calamity by which Antony lost his children in August of the same 
summer. Thomas completed his education under Rev. Charles 
Chauncy, minister at Scituate and the second president of Harvard 
college. He married, 11 May, 1643, Elizabeth, the younger daughter 
of Rev. Ralph Partridge {q-v.), minister at Duxbury. In January, 
1645, he was ordained at Weymouth, and was admitted Freeman 
the same year. He remained at Weymouth as the town minister 
till 1664, when he removed to Boston. His wife died at Weymouth, 
2 June, 1664, and he married 2d, 1665, Margaret, widow of Jacob 
Sheaffe, and daughter of Henry Webb. 

Mr. Thacher devoted himself to the practice of physic in Boston 
until 16 February, 1670, when he was installed the first minister of 
the Third church (Old South), in Boston. In this position he con- 
tinued till death, which occurred 15 October, 1678. The inventory 
of his estate exhibits a list of 160 large books, and many small ones ; 
a negro man and a negro maid; and the household effects of a 
prosperous gentleman of that day. Mr. Thacher was a superior 
scholar, and of the highest reputation in New England. As a phy- 
sician, he was the earliest in that profession at Weymouth, and was 
the author of the first medical tract printed in Massachusetts, under 
the title of A brief Guide to the Common People in the Small Pox 
and Measles. Children :

dauijliter of George Partridge {q. v.) of Duxbury. He was a citizen 
of Duxbury for several years; was constable 1673, and town clerk 
1685-94. The family predilection manifested itself when he was 
full forty years of age, and he became settled as a minister at Chil- 
mark, Martha's Vineyard, where he preached many years. Chil-

This name is tliought to be identical with Partrich in ancient, Normandy, 
sometimes written there Pertricli. and in England Partheridge. During 
the wars between King Stephen of England and the P^mpress Mand, the 
head of the family migrated from Normandy, and, casting in his fortunes 
with the King, received from Henry II. a grant of the borough of Maiden 
in Co. Essex. In this grant he is described as Partridge, the Norman. 
The family early spread to Westmoreland and Gloucestershire, where Sir 
Robert Atkyns mentions them, in 1608, as long settled. As a rule they 
were loyal to church and state; and a descendant of Master Partridge, the 
goldsmith, of Queen Mary, was slain at Worcester, fighting for the King. 

1. Rev. Ralph Partridge was in his early life a clergyman of the church 
of England, and later one of the most distinguished ministers of New Eng- 
land. Of him. Young's Chronicles of the Pilgrims says: "Ralph Par- 
tridge, a gracious man of great abilities, arrived at Boston, 1636. He was 
a member of the Cambridge (Mass.) synod of 1647, and was associated 
with Cotton and Mather in drawing up the platform of church government 
and discipline." 

He arrived 17 November, 1636; was first tninister at Duxbury; and 
continued in the ministry till his death at an advanced age in 1658. 

Cotton Mather wrote an epitaph for him, ending Avolavit. 

Morton, in his Memorial, gives this acrostic: 

R un is hi? race, 

A nd his work done, 

L eft earthly place, 

P artridge is gone; 

H e's with the Father and the Soil< 

P ure joys and constant do attend 
A 11 that so live, such is their end. 
11 eturn he shall with Christ again, 
T o judge both just and sinful men, 
R aised in this line of paradise; 
I oy lieaven entered brealcs the ice- 
D eath underfoot he trodden hath ; 
G race is to glory straightest path, 
E ver enjoys love free from wrath.

The inventory of liis estate shows extensive possessions ; a farm of about 
150 acres, a two-storied gambrel-roofed dwelling, manifestly superior to the 
common Puritan emigrant's house. The parlor on the ground floor was 
carpeted; there was a round table in the centre of the room, and a less 
pretentious table at the wall. Andirons and dogs graced the fireplace, and 
a looking glass was suspended against the wall. His staff and a cane stood 
in the corner; where in a cupboard was kept the silver plate and the silver 
beer cup which his daughter, Mary Marshall, retained as a heir-loom. In 
the room were three high chairs and one wooden one with two cushions. 
In his study was a small table, a desk and a cushioned stool. Two book 
cases against the wall held about 400 volumes. A small sleeping room and 
a kitchen to the rear completed the ground iloor. In the celhir were nine 
beer casks. In the chamber over tiie parlor the bed was provided with a 
valance, and the chest of diawers had a napkin on it. The kitchen chamber 
had a bed, and the lean-to chambers had each a bed and a truckle bed. 
There was still a garret over all. His stock of cattle consisted of four 
oxen, one bull, seven cows, two yearlings, two calves, two ewes and two 
swine, six hens and live chickens. His farm tools included a cart and a

spectable yeoman of the colony, was from the county of Kent, and thought 
to have been no kinsman to the parson. In 1636, he was granted land at 
Powder point, Duxbury ; other grants followed in succeeding years. He 
was Freeman, 1646. He married, November, 1633, Sarah Tracy {q- v.),

Among the passengers on the Mayflower, 1620, were Edward' and Ann 
Fuller, who, Gov. Bradford says, " died soon after they came on shore." 

1. P^DWARD* Fui-LKR was a brother to Samuel Fuller, the deacon and 

beloved physician of Plymouth. Edward's son Samuel,* thus left 
an orphan, went to live with his uncle and namesake. Dr. Samuel 
Fuller. In 1633, he was an executor of his uncle's will; in 1634, 
was Freeman; in 1635, he removed to Scituate, and married Jane, 
daughter of Rev. John Lothrop; in 1641, he was a constable at 
Scituate; and in 1644, was admitted an inhabitant of Barnstable, 
where he continued to dwell till his death, 31 October, 1683, 
when his wife was already deceased. Children : 

i. Hannah,^ m. 1 January, 1658-9, Nicholas Bonham. 

ii. Sajsiuel, bapt. 11 February, 1637-8 ; m. Anne, dau. of Capt. Mattliew 
Fuller, V. 2. v. No record of their family has been found; but, 
in 1691, the heirs agreed to a settlement of the parental estate, 
TN'here their signatures are: (1) Matthew,'* (2) Barnabas, (3) 
Joseph, (4) Benjamin, (5) Desire, (6) Sarah. 

Hon. Melville Weston Fuller, LL.D., Chief Justice of the Su- 
preme Court of the United States, is descended from this family.

moved his family to East Iladdam, Conn. Children: (1) Saimtel,

(7) Bevjniiiiii, (S) Mr/n/.ii,,-!, and, perhaps, Deborah and others. 

2. Mattheav- Fuller, born in England or Holland aliout 1610, did not 

accompany his father, Edward. As his brother Samuel received 
lands from the Plymouth authorities as the eldest son of his dead 
parents, who had no child first born in the colony, it is evident 
Matthew was the younger. About 1640, a mairied man with wife 
and children, Matthew Fuller appears. In 1642 land was assigned 
him. He was a juryman the san)e year, and propounded as Free 
man. In 1643, the little colony had established a military company, 
liiised in the towns of Plymouth, Duxbury and Marshfield; and of 
this force Myles Standish was chosen captain, and Matthew Fuller 
a sergeant. About 1650, he established himself as a physician at 
Barnstable, and was the first in that profession at that point. In 

1652, lie was elected lieutenant of the militia at Barnstable. In 

1653, he was representative of the town in the General Couit. lu 


1G54, he was appointed lieutenant, under Capt. Standish, of the fifty 
men raised as the Plymouth quota to expel the Dutch from Man- 
hattoes. As peace between England and Holland was declared be- 
fore this force departed, Matthew Fuller saw no service on that ex- 
pedition. In 1658, he was elected one of the council of war, and, 
in 1671, was its chairman and lieutenant of the force raised to quell 
the Saconet Indians. In 1673, he was appointed surgeon general 
of the colony troops. In 1676, he was a captain in King Philip's 
war. In the Quaker controversy, Capt. Fuller stood firmly for 
toleration. In 1658, the grand jury presented Dr. Fuller for de- 
nouncing the law for ministers' maintenance, and, on his confession, 
he was fined 50s. His career shows him to have been an earnest, 
honorable man, of liberal politics and tolerant religion, independent 
in character and speech, whose public services gave him a promi- 
nence among his contemporaries, and a reputation which has ex- 
tended to the present. Capt. Fuller made his will 20 July, 1678, 
which was probated on the 30th of the following October. His 
wife, Frances, was named executrix. The inventoi-y of his estate 
sums up £667.04.06.* Children:

3. Lieut. Samuel" P"'uller was a captain in King Philip's War, and 
fell at Rehoboth, 25 March, 1676. He had held minor town offices 
at Barnstable, and, in 1670, served on a committee to assess damages 
to cattle and plantations by Indians. He left wife, Mary, as we 
learn from his will. Children :

dren : (1) Hannah^; (2) Joseph, m. Joanna Crocker; (3) 3Iarij,

* Mr. Amos Otis, in the valuable series of Genealogical Notes of Barnstable 
Families, published some years ago in the Patriot of that town, says : " Among the 
items in Capt. Fuller's inventory is the following: ' Pearls, precious Stones and Diamonds, 
at a guess £200.' In connection therewith a marvellous story is told. Soon after Capt. 
Fuller's death, this box of jewels was missing. A Scotch servant was accused of its theft. 
There was no proof, only suspicion. The charge so affected him that he abstained from 
food, and soon died of grief and starvation. He was buried in a grove on the north- 
eastern slope of Scorton Hill. When he died it was winter, and a deep snow lay upon the 
ground. His body was buried at this spot, because the deep snow prevented his neighbors 
from carrying it fiu-ther. For nearly two centuries the plow has spared the turf which 
covers his grave. To this day it is pointed out, and timorous people dare not pass it after 
dark. Many fearful stories are told of the apparation of the Scotchman ; and wayward 
children have been frightened into obedience by threats of appeal to the Scotchman's ghost 
in aid of their elder's commands. Recently stones have been placed, one at the head and 
another at the foot of the lonely sepulcher."

Page 18. Since the publication of tlie foregoing article of Charles W. Tuttle, 
A.M., it has been learned that John* Tattle came to New England in the Angel 
Gabriel, Capt. Andrews. This ship had been built for Sir Walter Raleigh and 
is thought to liave been the vessel in wliich Raleigh made, in 1617-18, his last 
voyage. On his attainder, the ship was forfeited and sold. In 1635, the ship 
was engaged to convey to New England Mr. Jolm Coggswell, his wife, three 
sons an'cl Ave daughters, and othef p'assengers, among whom was John Tuttle. 
The master, Capt. Andrews, had with him two nephews, John and Thomas Burn- 
ham. These emigrants were the ancestors of the Cogswells and Burnhams in 
the United States. John Cogswell had been a manufacturer in England of 
woollen cloth, and a London merchant. At his emigration, he toolc with him 
his family, several servants and a large and valuable assortment of furniture, 
farm implements, and a considerable sum of money. Rev. E. 0. Jameson, in 
his history of the Coggswell family, quotes largely from a journal kept by Rev. 
Richard Mather, of borchester, Mass., who was a passenger on the James, a 
vessel Avhich for two weeks kept company with the A^igel Gabriel. The journal 
says : 

" The ship James was commanded by Capt. Taylor and fell in with the Angel 
Gabriel, before leaving Bristol (Eng.) harbor. June 4, 1635, we set sayle, Ave 
Shippes, three for New Eoundland, the Diligence, 150 tunne, the Manj, 80 tunne, 
and the Bess, and two bound for New England the Angel Gabriel, 240 tunne, 
and the James, 220 tunne. Erora June 5 to 9, we were detained and made for 
Milford Haven, Pembroke Co., Wales, where we heard two comfortable ser- 
mons, and sailed Monday 22 June. On the evening of Tuesday, we lost sight of 
the shippes bound for Newfoundland, but thought it best to stay for the Angel 
Gabriel, a strong ship & well furnished with fourteene or sixteene pieces of ord- 
nance and therefore our seamen rather desired her company ; but yet she is slow 
in sailing and therefore Ave went sometimes with tliree sayles less than wee 
might have done, yt so we might not overgoe her. July 4, we lost sight of the 
Angel sayling slowly behind us, and we never saw her again any more. August 
14 at about breake of day, y<= Lord sent forth a most terrible storm of rain and 
easterly wind, whereby we lost three great ancres and cables. The Angel Gabriel 
yn at ancer at Pemaquid was burst in pieces and cast away in y^ storme & most 
of the cattell & other goodes ; with one seaman & 3 or 4 passengers did also 

Another account said: "The storm was dreadful at Pemaquid, the wind 
blowing from the northeast, the tide rising to a very unusual height, in some 
places more than twenty feet right up and down : this was succeeded by another 
and unaccountable tidal wave still higher." 

No trace has been found of John Tuttle from the disaster in which he was 
shipwrecked till he appears at Dover point in 1640. Traditions concerning his 
history for those four or rive years are vague, illusory and unworthy serious 
attention. They will probably all harmonize with the facts, if the latter are 
ever ascertained.

The Newington Church possesses a bell cast by Paul Revere. It has rung 
for devotions and jubilee, and tolled for funerals, for almost a century. The 
receipt for the purchase of the bell is still preserved in the archives of the 
town, and reads thus : — 


" Thos. Pickering, bought of Paul Revere and Son, one church bell, weighing 
505 lbs., at $210.40. Received the above.

Our attention has been called by Lieut. Charles Stedman Ripley, U. S. N., to 
the Harleian Society's publication, 1885, of the 1G23 Visitation of the County 
of Gloucester by the deputies of William Camden, Clarenceux King of Arms, 
wherein is printed a pedigree of Tracy of Stanwaye, as follows :

The extensions of later date than the visitation are according to official rec- 
ord in the Herald's College. 

It is apparent by this'that Nathaniel Tracy, oldest son of Richard, was de- 
ceased without issue before the return of this pedigree, or was incompetent, if 
living, as the succession to the honor and estates had passed to a younger bro- 
ther, Paul, on the death of the father Richard in 15G9. If the statement that 
Lieut. Thomas Tracy was born about 1610 at Tewksbury in Gloucestershire be 
correct, he can be none other than the seventh son of Sir Paul Tracy, if he were 
of gentle blood. The eminent capacity and fitness for public service displayed 
by Lieut. Thomas Tracy and his posterity was an inheritance from an ancestry, 
long dignified with the sherift'alty of the county, and occasional service in 
parliament as knights of the shire. 

Burke's " Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies of England, &c.," 1838, says that 
Sir William Tracy was twice in parliament from Gloucester (1313, 1321) and 
was high sheriff (1324-29) in the time of Edward II. In the next reign. Sir 
John Tracy was a member of parliament for Gloucestershire (1357) and sheriff 
(1368-9). His grandson, John Tracy of Todlington, was sheriff in 1378. His 
son, William, filled the office in 1395, and in the next generation William Tracy 
was high Sheriff of Gloucester in 1418, and a member of the Privy Council of 
Henry VI. He was succeeded as sheriff by his son and his grandson, both William. 
The grandson of the last was Sir William of Todlington, who was sheriff in 1512- 
13. He was a gentleman of excellent parts and sound learning. He embraced 
the reformed religion, and was one of the most prominent supporters of the 


policy and measures of Henry VIII. He voiced and sustained liis convictions 
in his will, which has been printed as 'a curious example of the sincerity of those 
times. His eldest son was ancestor of the Viscounts Tracy of Rathcoole, Ire- 
laud; another was a judge; a third, Eichard, was granted by the crown a por- 
tion of the lands of the abbey of Tewksbury, on the suppression of that institu- 
tution. In the second year of Queen Elizabeth, Richard was sheriff, and mai-- 
ried to Barbara, a daughter of Thomas Lucy of Charlecote, immortalized by 
Shakespeare. The pedigree, above given, proceeds from this Sir Richard Tracy. 
The eldest brother of Lieut. Thomas Tracy inherited and enjoyed the honors 
of the family ; Avas knighted and sheriff of the shire, as was his eldest son, 
Humphrey, who was loyal to King Charles and saved his estates from seques- 
tration by a large composition to the treasury of the Commonwealth. Soon the 
male line, which inherited the honors of Stanwaye, became extinct, and the pro- 
perty passed to the Earl of Wemyss. 

The honors of knighthood, enjoyed by this branch of the Tracy family, 
according to Kimber, have been : 

William Tracy knighted 1289, 17 Edw-i I. 

Sir William Tracy knighted 1518, 5 Hen. VIII. 

Sir John Tracy kniahted 1574, Queen Eliz'^. 

Sir John Tracy knighted 1C09, James I. 

Robert Tracy "knighted -— , Charles I., and created Viscount Tracy 12 Jan. 
1642, 18 Charles I. 

Page 51— VI. The Avife of Deacon Adgate was born Mary Marvin, not 

Daniel Tracy did not inherit the home place of his father, as Miss Caulkins 
says in her history of Norwich. The land records of Norwich show that the 
home lot Avas divided into tliree portions, of Avhich Daniel received the eastern 
portion, Solomon the western, Avhile the middle Avith the homestead was sold 
by John to Israel Lothrop in 1G87. In 1739, Daniel's son Daniel purchased the 
laud {minns house) of this middle portion.
