PREFACE. 



The object proposed in the present work, is to fumisli a full and accurate history of the Lcland family 
in America. It has been the aim of the author to make the history so complete that all the descendants 
of Henry Leland, the common family ancestor in this country, may learn from it at once, their rela- 
tionship to him and to each other. 

The better to accomplish this object the tabular form has been adopted, thus greatly facilitating the 
case and readiness witli whicli any line of descent in the family can be traced. This, together vnth 
the full index inserted in the book, will make it eminently convenient for reference. It is hoped that 
the convenience thus resulting will more than compensate for the much greater expense of this mode 
of publication. The plates which appear in the Magazine, have been procured and inserted, with the 
kind consent of such as are livhig, and of the near relatives of such as have deceased, of those whom 
the plates represent. These, it is believed, will both contribute to the appropriate embclhshment 
of the work, and prove a source of pleasure and interest to the numerous family connexions, whose 
friends may, in tliis way, be specially called to remembrance. 

Tlic sketches of the lives of indi\dduals and families, introduced in the work, may be relied upon as 
accurate ; having, in all instances, been prepared by those who know that whereof they affirm ; and the 
accounts are as full as the materials and circumstances would allow. There are, undoubtedly, many 
others equally worthy of notice with those of whom special mention has been made. It will be suffi- 
cient apology, that such are passed in silence, to let it be known, that the reciuisite information could 
not be obtained to give even a sketch of their history. The author gratefully acknowledges Ids 
obligations to tlie numerous friends, who in great kindness and accommodation, have furnished him 
witii the information indispensable to the accomplishment of his work. While correctness has been 
ainied at, it is not presumed that all en-ors have been avoided. It is hoped, however, tliey will be 
found to be few and unimportant, and such as will be readily pardoned by all who can, in any measure, 
appreciate the magnitude and difficulty of the labor to be performed. 

It is unnecessary to say much in exjilanation of the unavoidably long delay in the appearance of tlic 
book. Those who know any thing of the nature of the task of collecting the materials for such a 
work from all parts of the land, and preparing them for the press, will demand no explanation. Those 
who do not, would be unprepared to appreciate it, should it be given. The author has only to say, 
that he has endeavored to furnish the book at the earliest practicable date. 

The sketch of the English branch of the Leland family, which follows these brief introductory 
remarks, has been prepared and furnished by the Hon. P. W. Leland, of Fall River. 



A SKETCH 



OF THE 



ENGLISH BRANCH OF THE LELAND FAMILY. 



BY P. W. LELAND 



Family names among the early Saxons, and subsequently among the Anglo-Saxons, it is well 
known, were derived or adopted from trades, callings, professions, names of places, moral and physical 
excellencies or deformities, acts performed, places resident, or from terminal affixes to parental desig- 
nations. English literature abounds in this species of etymology, a copious list of which may be 
found in " Harrison's Rise and Progress of the English Language." 

The name Leland, variously written previously to the reign of George II., may owe its origin to the 
locality occupied by the family in England, or to the original Saxon or Norman district whence the 
family took its rise. It is stated by one eminent biographical writer, that a district of country in 
England gave name to the family. This may be true, or the reverse may be the true hypothesis, viz : 
that the family gave name to the district. The strip of territory, denominated Leyland, on most full 
maps of the Island of Great Britain, one of which is inserted in "McCuUoch's Commercial Dictionary," 
gives color to either supposition. Leyland, as applied to a portion of countiy, is a description of the 
uses to which it is devoted, taking the etymology of the word in the sense used by the early Anglo- 
Saxons. The words, Lee, Leigh, Lea, Ley, Lye, though orthographically different, have all the same 
signification, and denote a pasture; and united with the last syllable of the name may properly mean 
pasture ground or land. Hence, in early times, the family may have been generally shepherds and tillers 
of the soil. In accordance with ancient orthography the last syllable of the name is often found 
written, lond or londe, this being the mode of spelling the word land, during the fourteenth and fifteenth 
centuries, as may be seen by consulting the speech of William Thirnyng to Richard II„ at the Tower 
of London, as given by Lord Campbell, in his Lives of the Chief Justices. 

The same name is somewhat common in France, slightly varied in its orthography to suit the genus 
of that beautiful language. It is there written Lalande, the article La being substituted for Le or 
Ley, the noun following being feminine, and the e final added in accordance with the grammatical 
structure of that tongue. 

The orthography of the English language was in an unsettled state so late even as the time of Dr. 
Johnson, and the names of persons, as well as of things were, in the absence of any recognised standard 
of authority, written according to the ear of the writer, and the unestablished value attached to the

aymlwls used. Words were laden down with dii)hthonKs, douhlc consonanLs, and silent Icttcn*, witJi- 
out rule and without reason. During tliis slate of learning; tlie name, now universally written Ijland 
is found in book.s and ancient docunientd written J^yland, lA^aland, Iceland, iMi/lund, and Ijcylonde 
nor is thi.'<, by any means, a sinf;iilar instance of diversity : Campbell pives numerous insUirKe-t in 
wiiicii tlie names of well known persons in England, during the fifleenth and si.xtcenth centuricti, 
exhibit from five to twenty variations in their orthography. 

The earliest of our name, historically known to the writer, is John Leland, bom at London alxjut the 
year l.')12. He nourished in the reign of Henry VIII., and was one of the most aceom{)lishcd 
scholais, and voluminous writers of the sixteenth century. In looking over a catalogue of his works, 
their vast variety and extent, one is astonished that a man dying at the age of about forty, could have 
accomplished so much. His education commenced under the famous William Lily, at St. Paul's, and 
was subsequently continued at Christ's College, Cambridge, where he became a fellow. His 
academic course was finally completed at All Souls' College, Oxford. Cotcmporary and subsequent 
history pronounce, him one of the most accomplished linguists of his age. He spoke and wrote the 
Latin, Greek, Saxon and Welsh, with the facility and correctness of natives of those countries. 

On leaving Oxford, he went to I'aris, at which city, and on the continent, he spent several years, 
the literary associate and companion of Budaeu, Faber, Paulus iEmilius, Ruellius and Francis 
Sylvius. While there he added to his knowledge of European languages, those of French, Italian and 
Spanish, and returned to England about the year 1537. Shortly after, Henry VIII. made him his 
chaplain, and conferred on him the rectory of Pepling, and about the same time created for him a 
new office, that of the " King's Antiquary," which has this honorable distinction, that the office was 
created for John Leland, and expired with him, he .being the first and last Royal Antiquar\' of 
England. With this commission he was authorized to survey and examine all the antiquities of the 
realm, monasteries, monastic and college libraries, natural curiosities, and whatever might contrib- 
ute to the history of the country and the glory of the nation. In tlie execution of this trust he spent 
six years, visited every part of the island, " surveyed to^vns and cities and rivers ; castles, cathedrals 
and monasteries ; tumuli, coins and inscriptions ; collected authors and transcribed manuscripts." 
Over his vast collection of materials he wrought si.x additional years, writing out, mostly, in elegant 
Latin, an account of his great discoveries. Henry was a munificent patron, confening on his Antiquary 
valuable livings, and cheering him on in the accomplishment of his magnificent undertakings. "Henry," 
says D'Israeli, "was worthy of Leland, and the genius of the author was magnificant as that of the 
monarch who created it." Among other elegant fruits of the Antiquary Royal, was the production of 
his " Strena, or a New Year's Gift," which he presented to the king in 1545. " It coiisists," says the 
author just quoted, "of an account of his studies; and sketches with a fervid and vast imagination, 
his magnificent labor, which he had already inscribed with the title " De Antiquitatc Britannica," and 
which was to be divided into as many books as there were shires. AJl parts of this Address of the 
King's Antiquary to the King, bear the stamp of his imagination and his taste." His principal great 
works are the following: " Commentarii de Scriptoribus," " The 'Itinerary','' " De Rebus Britanicus 
Collectana-," and a work entitled "Assertio Inclytissimi Arturii Regis Britannia;," — relating to the 
illustrious Arthur, king of England. 

In the midst of these great labors, the Antiquary frequently gave wings to his brilliant and chaste 
imagination, throwing off elegant effusions, sometimes in prose, but oftencr in Latin and English verse; 
one of which, entitled the " Cygnea Cantio," or "the Song of the Swans," is still beautiful for its plan, 
and the subjects introduced. The Swan of Leland melodiously floats down the Thames from Oxford 
to Greenwich, and chants, as she passes along, the ancient names and honors of the towns and castles. 
The genius of Leland was lofty and brilliant. Whatever he touched received the mark of his owa 
greatness. Whether pouring over the drj- details of antiquarian research, or striking the harp strings 
of the muses, he left the impress of a mind always profound, always brilliant, always alive to the honor 
and glory of his country. The man appears on every page ; even his humbler efforts are worthy of 
himself The king died soon after receiving the " New Year's Gift," and from this moment the 
Royal Antiquary was another being. His wonted energy gave way ; the man of labor became melan- 
choly, and began to look upon his vast labors with something of indifference Once he had dreams of 
enduring and world-wide fame ; in his hours of melancholy his ambition shrunk ^vithin the narrower

limits of his own country and his o%vn age. He gave vent to this feeling in the follomng beautiful Latin 
verse, taken from DTsraeli's Miscellanies of Literatm-e : — 

POSTERITATIS AMOR BUBIUS. 

" Posteritatis amor mihi perblaiiditur, et ultro 

Promittit libris secula multa meis. 
At non lam facile est oculato imponere, nEisco, 

Quam non sim tali dignus hoiiore frui. 
Grfficia magniloquos vales desiderat ipsa, 

Roma suos eliam disperiise dolet. 
Examplis quum sim claris edoctus ab istls, 

Qui sperem Musas vivere posse meas? 
Cerle mi sat aril prsesenti scribere seculo; 

Auribus et patriae complacuisse meae." * 

Tliis melancholy state of mind increased with time, and at length, involved the whole mental struc- 
ture of the man. Various causes are assigned for this, and among them, the death of Hemy, to whom 
the Antiquary seems to have been devotedly attached, has been regarded most prominent. It is also 
suggested by some -s^Titers, that his stipend or allowance was not regularly paid him under the new 
dynasty, but for this there does not seem to be any reliable evidence. The suggestion probably has its 
origin in some melancholy but touching Latin verses of the Antiquary, addressed to Archbishop Cran- 
mer, which though abounding in allusions to the state of his mind, do not show that any thing relating 
to his worldly prospects was the cause of his mental depression. The Catholics attributed it to 
remorse for having withdrawn from the church of Rome. True, John Leland did withdraw from the 
Catholic communion, and adopt the more simple tenets and less gorgeous ceremonials of the church 
of England, but it does not appear that he was not to the last perfectly satisfied with the step he had 
taken. The more probable solution is, that he had over taxed his mental powers, and sank under the 
magnitude of his self imposed labors. Be the cause of his disorder what it may, the disease terminated 
in a permanent state of mental aberration. Edward VI., the successor of Henry VIII., by letters 
patent, dated March 5th, 1550, granted the custody of the Antiquary to his brother, and for his main- 
tenance he was to receive the profits of the rectories of Hasely and Pepling, with his Salisbury 
prebend, which had been confen'ed on him by Henry VIII. He died April 18, 1552. His numerous 
manuscripts, and vast collection of papers, were committed by the king to the care of Sir John Cheke, 
who shortly after left the country, leaving the manuscripts in the custody of Humphrey Punefoy, Esq. 
Burton, the historian, subsequently obtained possession of them, and also of eight other volumes of 
manuscripts in quarto, comprising the "Itenerary," all of which are now in the Bodlian Library, London. 
Another collection of John Leland's manuscripts is in the Cottonian Collection in the British Museum, 
among which are the Latin and English verses, -iratton by the Antiquary, and spoken in the Pageant, 
as Ann Bolyn, one of the wives of Henry VIII., and mother of Queen Elizabeth, went to her 
coronation 

Leland has been the common fountain from which many subsequent writers on English antiquities 
have dra-rni. To him, Holinshed, Drayton, Camden, Dugdale, Stowe, Sambord and Battelay are 
indebted for the best portions of their valuable works — a noble fountain, which even those voluminous 
authors have not exhausted of its riches. He was buried in London, at the west end of Cheapside. 
The monument erected over his remains was destroyed by the great fire of 1666, and a street now

Wliethcr the family, in the time of the Anti'iuary, was numerous in England, or othcnvisc, is 
unknown to the wrilcr. 

Nearly a eentnry and a half after, ajipeared the eminently illustrious thoolopian, John Lcland.D. D., 
horn at Wigan, in Lancashire in 1 GUI. The family moved to Duhiiu during iiis eliildliood, where, at 
the proper age, John entered upon his collegiate course of education. This completed, he prejiarcd 
himself for the ministry, and was early settled over a congregation of Dissenters, in New Row, Duhlin, 
about the year ITIG. The father was cotemporary with Henry Leland, the ancestor of the American 
branch of the family, and in early life both were residents of nearly the same (piarter of the i'^land of 
Great Britain. Precisely what their relationship was, the wTiter has not been able to ascertain. As 
Dr. John Leland occupied an important place in the religious world, for the .«pacc of nearly half a 
century, a short account of his cast of mind and great labors may not be out of place. 

Dr. Leland had the good sense to confine himself to the duties of his profession, and the results 
corresponded to the singleness of his life's pui-pose. To a mind eminently logical and analytical by 
nature, was added great historical and theological learning, resting on a memory vast and tenacious as 
his reading and obsenation were extensive. As a controversialist Dr. Leland had few equals, and 
fewer superiors. On all occasions ho was ready to avow and to defend the faith that was in him. 
Leained, yet not ostentatious, fearless, yet far removed from recklessness or temerity, he met the 
opponents of Christianity, whether their approaches were openly or insidiously made, with a logical 
acuteness as admirable as it was irresistible. His first appearance, as an author, was in 1733, in 
answer to Tindal's book entitled " Christianity as Old as the Creation." This reply is a masterly 
refutation of tJie positions and assumptions of his able as well as ingenious antagonist, and brought 
its author prominently before the public. In l"."?, he encountered Thomas Morgan, a man of celebrity, 
who had just MTitteu a bold work, of doubtful morality, entitled " The Moral riiilosopher."' Dr. 
Leland's answer is entitled " The Divine Authority of the Old and New Testament Asserted." In 
1742, he wrote and published an answer to a pamphlet entitled " Cliristianity not founded on Argu- 
ment;" and in 1753, appeared his "Reflections on the Late Lord Bolingbroke's Letters on tlic Study 
and Use of History, as they relate to Cliristianity and the Holy Scriptures." This is an admirable 
production, and added greatly to the fame of the author. 

In 1754, Dr. Leland published his cliicf work, entitled "A View of the Principal Deistical "Writers 
that have appeared in England in the Last and Present Centuiy," in letters to a friend. To this gi-eat 
work he subsequently appended a supplement, relating to the works of Ilume and Lord Bolingbrokc. 
This is a masterly eflfort of learned and logical acumen, from which subsequent writers have liberally 
drawn, when treating on the same subject. It is still a standard work, and of high authority amongst 
theologians. Dr. Leland gave to the world but one other work, and this after he was seventy years 
old. It is entitled " The Advantages and Necessity of the Christian Revelation."' In reading it one 
hardly knows which most to admire, its admirable logic or its beautiful display of fervid piety. Though 
now superseded by other works on the same subject, more elaborately wTitten, it is still resorted to,

by thorough students, as well for its facts, as for its arguments. Dr. Leland died in 1766, being then in 
his seventy-fifth year. His Sermons, in four volumes, were subsequently published by the Rev. Isaac 
Weld, his associate and colleague at the New Row Church, in Dublin. 

Nearly cotemporary with Dr. John Leland, but younger, and a resident of the same city, was 
Thomas Leland, D. D., bom in 1722. The writer is not informed as to the relationship existing 
between them. Thomas was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, at which institution, in 1763, he 
became professor of oratory ; and shortly afterwards was appointed chaplain to the lord lieutenant of 
Ireland He was not only a ripe, but an elegant scholar, and contributed largely to the literature of 
his time. His religious opinions were those of the church of England, of which he is said to have 
been a brilliant ornament. As an author he is well known to scholars and general readers of the 
present day ; his principal works being still found in nearly all public, and in many private libraries. 
While occupying the professorship of oratory he translated from the Greek into Latin, the orations 
of Demosthenes, and subsequently put them in an English dress. His translation of these celebrated 
orations is still the very best extant, a beautiful model of correct rendering, and elegant English. He 
also translated the orations of ^schines with equal fidelity, and no less credit to himself. About the 
same time, or perhaps a little before, an ingenious historical romance appeared, entitled " Longsword," 
the autliorship of which, though never avowed by Dr. Leland, is, and was believed, during his life 
time, to have emanated from his pen. Of this book the writer knows nothing, never having seen a 
copy. It is said to possess some points of real excellence and great beauty. 

Dr. Thomas Leland's most elaborate work, is a history of Ireland, in three volumes, quarto, com- 
mencing with the invasion of Henry II., and bringing the narration down to the time of the flight 
of James II., and the accession of Wiliam and Mary to the throne of England. The work is written in 
a plain, matter of fact style, according to the custom of that day, without much ornament, and with 
less of disquisition. It is, nevertheless, regai'ded as a faithful chronicle of events as they transpired 
■within the period embraced, and altogether, a valuable standard work. 

Another considerable work from the pen of Dr. Leland, is his " Life of Philip of Macedon," a 
well wiitten and very instructive book. This was followed by an elaborate "Dissertation on the 
Principles of Oratory," an able and valuable work for the time, but now superseded by books of 
higher finish, and more in consonance with modem practice. 

Dr. Leland was, duiing a long literary life, on terms of intimacy with many of the distin- 
guished scholars of his age. It was at his suggestion, in 1765, in concurrence with Dr. Andrews, that 
Trinity College, conferred on Samuel Johnson, the great lexicographer, its highest academic honor, 
that of L. L. D. Dr. Leland obtained the prebend of Nothmichael in the cathedral church of St. 
Patrick, Dublin, where he occasionally officiated, with great satisfaction to the people, and with credit 
to the church of England. He is represented as a man of peculiar suavity of manners, and kindness 
of heart. He died in 1785, at the age of sixty-three. He left a family, but how numerous, is unknown 
to the writer. The name of his eldest son, was, or is, if living, John, who, it is believed, is father of the 
present eminent physician and surgeon, Dr Leland, of Dublin. The present " North Leland Street," 
Dublin, derives its name from this family. 

The transatlantic branch of the family is still numerous in England, there being both at London and 
Livei-pool, several houses of extensive business and sound reputation, all descendants, like the American 
branch, from a common ancestry. Of these, it is not in place here, to speak in detail. 



THE LELAND COAT OF ARMS. 

The Coat of Arms of the Leland family is, in heraldic language, thus described : — 

Chdes a saltier argent — charged with three Pallets azure, on chief or crest, with a Crow, 

rising transfixed with an arrow.

\Q HENRY LELAND'S CHILDEEN AND GRANDCHILDREN. 

From the most accurate information available, Henry Leland, the Progenitor 
of all who bear the name in this comitry, (with two exceptions, one who 
adopted the name, the origin of the other not known,) was born in England 
about the year 1625. 

It is supposed that he emigrated to America, in 1652, as the Ecclesiastical 
Records of Dorchester, show that he united with the church in that Town, in 
1653. After a short residence in Dorchester, Mr Leland settled on a tract of 
land, included in v/hat was afterwards the Town of SherburnCj Avhere he re- 
sided until the time of his death, in 1680. 

It is believed on evidence derived from some ancient records, confirmed by 
tradition, that Mr L. married previous to his removal to this country. It is 
much to be regretted that there are no sources of information, for determining 
the circumstances connected with his leaving the land of his nativity, to 
venture upon a life of hardship in the wilds of America. 

All, however, vv^ho are conversant with the history of that period will readily 
understand the cause of this deficiency. In those " troublous times," in the 
midst of their labors and trials, our Fathers did not provide for transmitting 
their history to unborn generations. 

There is good reason, however, for believing that Henry Leland was a man 
in character like his comrades in those days, distinguished for firmness, cour- 
age, patient endurance and invincible moral and religious integrity. 

The whole number of lineal descendants from Henry Leland, the first fam- 
ily ancestor of the name in America, cannot be definitely ascertained, but 
from the statistics collected, it cannot be less than fifteen thousand. May 
they and their posterity through all coming ages emulate his virtues, and 
prove themselves worthy descendants of their justly honored ancestor. 

It is thought that the will of Henry Leland, a copy of which has been 
obtained from the Probate Records, may be of suflicient interest to justify its 
insertion in connexion with this brief sketch; 



HENRY LELAND'S WILL. 

In the Name of God, Amen — 

The twenty-seventh day March, in the year of our Lord, 1680. 

I, HENRY LAYLAND, of Sherburne, being sick aud weake in body, but 
of sound and perfect memorie, praised be God for the same ; and knowing the 
uncertainty of this life, on earth, and being desirous to settle things in order, do 
make this, my last will and testament, in manner and form following : that 
is to say. 

First and principally, I commend my soul to Almighty God, my Creator, 
assuredly believing that I shall receive full pardon, and remission of all my 
sins, and be saved, by the precious death and merits of my blessed Saviour 
and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, and my body to the earth, from whence it was 
taken, to be buryed in such decent and christian manner as, to my executors, 
hereafter named, shall be thought meete and convenient.

And as toa(-liiii|^ such worldly cstati; as the Lord, in mercy, hath h.'nl inoe, 
my will and meaning is, the sumo shall be imploycd and hcsiowcd as hcreaf- 
UiY, by this my will, is expressed. 

And first I doc revok(>, renounce, iVusirate. and ma!ce void all wills by me 
Ibrmerly made, and declare and appoint tins my last wdl aiicJ testament. 

1 will that all those del)ts 1 owe to any maimer ol' person, be well and tridy 
contented and paid. 

I/t:fn — I'Uto my deare wife, Marc2:aret Layland, dinint: the term of her nat- 
urall lil'c", she remayniut? my widdow, 1 give and ht'cjueath the use ol" that jiart

part of the barne which is now in my improvement ; two acres of tillage land, 
ix^hindc the barne,* or where else she shall make choice of it, witlnn the two 
hundred acres : six acres of meadow, to be taken at the npper corner of 
IJrown's meadow, the friiitc of one half of the orchard in the upper side of the 
highway and about the dwelling house and barno. My mind and will is that 
my said deare wife, shall (iiiilil she shall see well to dispose t!j(^ same to my

immediately after my decease my son Eleazur, do enjoy the other lialf of the

decease, the whole said tract ot lauds, with all the riirhts, privileges and appur- 
tenances thereto belouiiing. benefits, profits, and comoditics therefrom arisin?, 
shall be and remayne wholly and solely to the said Eleazur and his, forever. 

I/(.'jn — I give to my deare wife, as her owne, to dis))0se what remains there- 
of, at her decease, among my children and grandchildren, as she shall sec 
mcete, all the household stuffs and necessary utensils, in that part of the house 
we now live in or pertaining to it, as also my mare; two cows, at her choice; 
all my swine, and all the fowls. 

And it is my miude and will, that my wife, from time to time, and at all 
times, as she shall liave occasion, shall liave liberty of free and uninterrupted 
recourse to and from house, barne, meadow, tillage-land, orchard, not only for 
herself, but also all such other as she seeth meete to employ, as also of keeping 
such creatures as she shall see meete and are needful for her use. 

Fiiiihcr — iVIy minde and will is, that my dear wife and my son, Eleazur 
Layland, do and shall pay imto Bethia Twitchcll, when she, the said Bcthia 
shall come of age, forty shillings. 

lloiti — To my eldest son, Hopestill Layland, I do give and bequeath the 
Avhole two hundred acres of land which I purchased of Mr. Lane, with my new 
dwelling house and barne, and all other buildings upon the said land, and all 
the ris-hts privilcGfCs and appurtenances unto the said land and housing ; es- 
pecially a I! land and ]iieadow, which, in any after divisions or allottments, 
may or shall bo allowed or laid out, upon the right of flie said living (excepting 
the above mentioned particulars willed to my deare wife, lor her use diu'ing 
the tearmeof her nattiu'al Hife,as aboves^; all which, notwithstanding this gilt 
to my son, Hopesiill, she shall enjoy as abovesaid, and the reversion to be to 
him,) he paying out of the same in convenient time, that is so soon as may be. 
without extraordinary straitning himself, twenty pounds, in country pay. at 
this house, to my daughter l-ixperience Colburne, and to my five grandchildren, 
now in being, forty shillings apiece, when they and as they shall attain to six- 
teen years of age ; and excepting also, out of this gift, foure acres of meadow, 
liereafter otherwise disposed. 

I also give to my son, Hopestill, one colt, and all tlie above mentioned par- 
ticulars, to him bequeathed, to be to him and his forever.

seven acres of upland and five acres of meadov/, as also four acres of meadow; 
to be taken in Brown's meadow, next the ditch throughout, provided he help 
his brother, Hopestill, to set up the remainder of fence about the said Brownes 
meadow. I also give unto my said son Ebenezur, that paire of my oxen which 
are now in his keeping, and the spaid mares colt, if he can finde it, to have 
the several p'lculars to him bequeathed, to him and his forever. 

To my son Eleazur, above and besides the above bequeathed land, I give 
one cow, to be chosen by him out of my cows, after his mother hath chosen 
hers : and I sive to him also, the colt which came of the mare that Goodman 
Breek had. 

Item — I do constitute andap pointe my eldest son Hopestill, and my deare 
wife Margaret, joint executors of this, my last will and testament, hereby in- 
vesting them with full power to call for and receive all debts and dues, to the 
said estate appertaining, either in or out of this jurisdiction. Nevertheless, my 
minde and will is, that my Vv'-ife shall not be burdened w^ith the payment of 
debts, but that matter to be wholly performed by my son Hopestill. 

And I constitute my loving brother, Roljert_^adcock, overseer of this, my 
last willand testament, intreating his utmost care aiid endeavor that all things 
be ordered as is herein expressed. And I do sollemnly charge and commantl 
my cliildren, each one, as they expect God's blessing with and upon what they 
receive, to avoid strife and discontentment, and to live in peace and unity one 
with another. 

Memorandum. Before signing and sealing, it was willed, by Henry Lay] and, 
that if his wife should change her condition she shall have liberty to take her 
thirds of the estate, according to law, instead of that which is given in this will, 
upon that condition (during her remaining his widow.) 

HENRY LAYLAND. [l.s.] 

This will was read to Henry Layland, and by him declared to be his last 
will and testament, in presence of 

^ James Holbrook, 
( Thomas Mighell. 

Thomas Holbrook, and Thomas Mighell, witnesses, made oath before Wm. 
Stoughton, Esq., and Joseph Dudley, Esq., assistants, 8 June, 16S0, that they 
were present and did see and heare Henry Layland signe and scale and pub- 
lish this instrument to be his last will; and that then he was of disposing 
minde, to their best understanding. 

As Attest, 

IsA. Addington, Clei\ 



Henry Leland's first child, was either born while on his passage from Eng- 
land, or very soon after his arrival m America, for it appears from the church 
records of Dorchester, that Hopestill, son of Henry and Margaret Layland 
was baptized in May 16.53. The births of his other four children, are entered 
upon the town records of Medfield. They were born before the existence of 
Sherburne as a town, not in Medfield, but upon the land, Avhicli, upon the 
incorporation of tlie town of Sherburne, became a part of its territory. His 
daughter Experience Avas married in 1.672, settled in Dedham, and continued 
to reside there until the time of her death. — His three sons settled, lived and 
died in Sherburne, near the place of their births. There is nothing known of

Eleazer Leland left no issue; seven of the eight sons of Hopestill attained 
the age of manhood, established themselves in Sherburne, or Holliston, a town 
taken from Sherburne in 1724, and spent their lives there. All the sons of 
Fibenezer commenced their career in hfe, in Sherburne, and Holliston. Ebene- 
zer remained through life in Sherburne. Timothy and Isaac settled, lived and 
(lied in Holliston. James married in Sherburne, and with his young family in 
1723 removed to the county of Worcester, and settled upon a township of land, 
called Hassanamisco, which afterwards took the corporate name of Cirafton. 
Amariah remained in Sherburne until about the year 17C(), when he removed 
to Providence. R. I. and from Providence to the Island of Mount Desert, in 
Maine. 

The family name appears to have been spelt by Henry and his son Eleazer, 
Layland. By his sons Hopestill and Ebenezer, Lealand. And their descendants, 
Avho remainod in Sherburne and Holliston^ continued to use the same mode 
of spelling, until about thirty years ago. But since the yeaY 1S20, the name, 
•in all the dilferent branches of the family, has been almost invariably spelt 
Leland.

When James Leland left Sherburne, in 1723, for the county of Worcester, 
the place where he settled was a new and uncultivated country. He acquired 
a large tract of land upon the Blackstone river, in the Southwest corner of 
the township of Hassanamisco, which was afterwards, in 173-5, mcorporated 
as a town, by the name of Grafton, and in the adjoining part of the town of 
Sutton. Six of his children were born in Sherburne, and five in the new 
township. He established his place of residence on the Eastern bank of 
the river, in Grafton. All his children, who attained the age of twenty-one, 
married and settled near him; Jerusha, Benjamin, James, Hannah, Deliver- 
ance and Phineas in Grafton; Moses and Thomas in Sutton; and Thankful, in 
Northbridge. From his large tract of land, he furnished his sons with farms. 



JAMES LELAND'S POSTEKITY 35 

All his sons, but James, remained at or near the places where they first settled, 
tlirough lil'e. James, at an advanced period ol'his lile, removed from Grafton 
to Ashheld, Mass., and after a few years, he left his new jjlacr; of residence, 
and went into the Western jmrt of the state of New York, and settled in a 
place now called Hopewell, in llu; county of Ontario. Jeru.sha and Hannah 
remained in (jrafton until their deaths. Thankful cftutinued to reside in .North- 
bridge, for many years; hut after the death of her husband, she went to Croy- 
don, N. H., to live with her children. Deliverance joined the society of Shak- 
ing Quakers, and went to live with them in the Psorlherly part of the county 
of Worcester. 

All the children of Jerusha Leland were born in Grafton. Her son James, 
soon after his marriage, went to Hardwick, Mass., and remained there through 
Hfe. Jerusha, on her marriage, settled in Framingham. Moses was one of 
the first settlors in Croyden, New Hampshire, and experienced, in full measure, 
those hardships and privations, which are allotted to tho.se who tirst settle 
new countries. In the latter part of his life he removed to Charlestown, X . H. 
Hannah, after her marriage, lived in Shrewsbury. Prudence lived in Grafton, 
Mass., Croyden, Newport, N. H. Elizabeth, lived in noplace but Grafton; and 
Susannah and Jemima, on their marriage, went to Upton, and remained there 
as long as they lived. 

All the children of Benjamin Leland were born in Grafton ; and all, except 
Deborah, Lucy and Benjamin, remained there through life. Deborah left Graf- 
ton at an advanced period of life, for Cato, Cayuga county. New- York, to live 
with her only daughter. Lucy, who was twice married, lived in Sutton, dur- 
ing the life of her first husband, and until after her second marriage. She then 
lived in Grafton until the death of her second husband. And after his death 
she went to Worcester, to live with her son. Benjamin sold his paternal estate 
m Grafton in 1795, and in the year 1804 removed to Weathersfield, Vermont 
and after residing there seven or eight years, returned to Mass., and settled 
in Barre. He remained in Barre a few years, and then went back to Grafton. 

The children of Moses Leland were all born in Sutton, Mass., and Solomon 
Moses, Timothy, Abigail, and Prudence remained there during their lives. 
Elizabeth remained there for many years, but she finally went to Charlton 
Mass. Jacob went among the first settlers to Croyden, New Hampshire, and 
after remaining there several years, removed to Sempronins, in the county of 
Cayuga, in the state of New York. Mary went to Douglass, soon after her 
marriage. After several years residence there, she returned to Sutton with her 
family. • She then went to New Salem, Mass., and remained there until the 
death of her husband. She finally removed to Northbridge, where she died. 
Sarah lived in Sutton, till 1785, and then removed to Barre, Mass. 

James Leland"s children were all born m Grafton, Mass. His oldest son, 
James, lived in Sherburne, Mass., from 1709 to 1775. He went to Ashfield, 
Mass. in 1775 or 1776. He remained in Ashfield, for twenty, or twenty-five 
years. He then removed to the Western part of New York, and settled in 



36 JAMES LELAJJD'S POSTERITY. 

Hopewell, in the comity of Ontario. Lydia married in Grafton, but went to 
Conway, Mass. Lucy married in Conway, and removed to Phelps, Ontario 
county, New York. Abigail married in Grafton, and remained there during 
the life of her first husband. On her second marriage, she went to Sutton, and 
continued there as long as she lived. Martha married in Conway, and settled 
there. Anna married and settled in Ashfield. Beulah married in Conway, 
and removed to Phelps, New York. 

The Rev. John Leland, better known in the sections of the country where 
he resided, as Elder Leland, Avas born in Grafton, Mass., May 14th, 1754. 
He was connected with Henry Leland, the progenitor of all of the name in 
America, by a line of descent through Ebenezer Leland of )Sherburne, James 
Leland of Grafton, Mass., and James Leland of Phelps, N. Y. He possessed a 
strong native vigor of intellect, and a genius purely original. 

He spent his early years with his father, who could afford his son no other edu- 
cational advantages, than those at that time furnished by the common schools of 
his native town. As John had a natural thirst for knowledge, he made the most 
of such facilities as were within his reach, and in its attainment and in mental 
discipline, he far excelled most of those of equal opportunities with himself. 

At the age of eighteen years, his mind became deeply impressed upon the 
subject of religion ; and after passing through various exercises — at one time 
being greatly depressed, and at another taking courage to persevere, during a 
period of about two years ; he at length became settled, in the hope that he had 
" passed from death unto life," and made a public profession of his faith, by 
being baptized in June, 1774. 

In connection with the other religious exercises of this period, Mr. Leland 
had the conviction, that it was his duty to preach the gospel ; and his public 
ministry may be said to have commenced simultaneously with his Christian 
experience. As opportunities presented, in his own and adjoining towns, he 
immediately commenced " preaching the word," in which favorite employment 
he continued with great success, during sixty-seven years. 

At the age of twenty-two, Mr. L. married, and with his wife, moved to Vir- 
ginia, where he resided fourteen years. While a resident of Virginia, he trav- 
elled extensively in that and the adjoining states, and fulfilled the duties of his 
calling with great fidelity and success. During his sojourn there, he baptized 
precisely seven hundred persons, and left behind him. two churches, gathered 
under his ministry; one containing two hundred, and the other three hundred 
members. 

On his return to New England, he took up his abode in Cheshire, Mass., 
where he spent the most of the remainder of his life, " laboring to promote pi- 
ety, and vindicate the civil and religious rights of all men;" and kw, if any, 
have ever labored more sincerely, and it may not be too much to say, more suc- 
cessfully, for the promotion of these objects, than did John Leland. He ful- 
filled, with uncommon fidelity, a pledge he had publicly made; that " as long 
as he could move his tongue^ wield a pen, or heave a cry to heaven; when-

• 

ever the rights of men, the hborty of consftencc. or the good of his country 
were invaded, by fraud or force, his feeble efforts should not lie dormant." 

A truer or a more ajipropriate portrait of the hfe of Mr. L., earuiot be given, 
than has been drawn by the fuithful and disrriuiinating pen of the rornj)iler of 
his writings, " with additional sketches of his hfe," from Avhieh the following 
is an extract : 

"To understand and api)reciate iIk; character of KIder Leiand, it is only 
necessary to read his writings, and to trace the operation of the principles and 
sentiments they contain, in the actions of his life. That his writings were a 
transcript of his mind and heart, none will deny, who knew him. The candor 
and openness, with which he ever avowed his sentiments, even when they sub- 
jected him to reproach and censure, are well known. 

Conversing with a friend, on one occasion, he remarked, ' though I have se- 
crets which I would not reveal to you, or any one else, I have not a religious 
secret in the world.' The same frankness marked the expression of his polit- 
ical opinions. That his independence of mind, aided materially in supporting 
this character, will be evident, when we consider how many individuals there 
are, who dare not be honest ; who have not the moral courage to sustain them 
in a course which they feel to be right, and in the expression of sentiments 
which they inwardly approve. A remark of Elder Leiand on this subject, is 
suggested by these reflections : Though in a religious point of view, said he, 
self-dependence, (by which he meant the opposite of a Christian's trust in 
God,) is most pernicious and fatal in its tendency — yet, in worldly matters, 
it is one of the best qualities a man can possess. 

Through a long life. Elder Leiand sustained with uniform consistency, the 
twofold character of the patriot and the Christian. For his religious creed, he 
acknowledged no directory but the Bible. He loved the pure, unadulterated 
word of truth, and as a minister of that word, zealous and faithful, he preached 
it as far as he was able, unmixed with the doctrines and commandments of 
men, 'not for fdtliy lucre, but of a ready mind.' 

He was clear in exposition, happy in illustration, often powerful and elo- 
quent in appeals to the conscience and heart. He insisted, in absolute and un- 
(jualified terms, on the great fundamental truths of the gospel, the necessity of 
regeneration, faith and repentance. But on points not essential to salvation, 
though his opinions were no less firmly established, and he never shrunk from 
advocating them on proper occasions, yet he did not censure or denounce those 
who differed from him, nor exclude from fellowship as Christians any who 
gave evidence of a gracious change, whatever might be their peculiar doctrinal 
views. He never engaged in controversy; and whenever any of his published 
views were disputed, or commented upon, as was sometimes the case, with 
severity, he preferred to let the matter rest a little, and then give another 
thrust, as he expressed it, to the waste of time, repetitions; and tediousness of 
reviews and replies. 

His political creed was based upon those sufficient truths of equality and of 



38 JAIVIES LELAND'S POSTEEITY. 

inherent and inalienable rights, recognised by the master spirits of the revolu- 
tion, as the principles for the support of which ' they pledged their lives, their 
fortunes and their sacred honor.' As a politician, he was above the influence 
of any but sincere and patriotic motives. He was a statesman rather than a 
politician. He studied the fundamental principles of government, and drew 
his conclusions directly from them, without any intervening medium of self or 
party interests. He judged men by their measures, and measures by their 
adaptedness to secure that resultwhich he deemed the legitimate object of gov- 
ernment, the greatest good of the greatest number. 

In his attachment to the administration of Jefferson, Madison, Jackson and 
Van Buren, he felt that he was contending for the same principles of democ- 
racy that nerved the arms, and strengthened the hands of the whigs of '76. 

His feelings upon the subject of slavery, may be gathered from the fact that 
during his fourteen years residence in Virginia, he never owned a slave, as 
well as from his remarks in the ' Virginia Chronicle,' and from the resolution 
offiered by him, when a member of the Baptist General Committee, and passed 
by them in 1789, in the following words: Resolved, that Slavery is a violent 
deprivation of the rights of nature, and inconsistent with a republican gov- 
ernment, and we therefore recommend to our brethen to make use of every 
legal measure to extirpate this horrid evil from the land, and pray Almighty 
God that our honorable legislature may have it in their power to proclaim 
the great jubilee, consistent with the principles of good policy. The great ob- 
ject (next in importance to his mission as a preacher of Christ, for which he 
seemed to have been raised up by a special Providence,) was to promote the 
establishment of religious liberty in the United States. His efforts, perhaps, 
contributed as much as those of any other man to the overthrow of ecclesias- 
tical tyranny in Virginia, the State of his adoption, and exerted a beneficial 
influence, though less successful, towards the promotion of the same end, in 
the State of his nativity. In the former, in the years 1786-7-8, we find his 
name in the doings of the Baptist general committee, with which he stood 
connected as messenger to the general assembly appointed to draft and present 
memorials respecting the ' incorporating act, the application of the glebe lands 
to public use,' &c. 

Though the cause of religious freedom was the common cause of all dissent- 
ers, yet the Baptist, as a sect, took the lead in those active, energetic and per- 
severing measures, which at length prevailed in the establishment. 

Speaking of his removal to New England, it is stated, 'as soon as he landed 
again on its shores, he commenced anew the warfare against religious intoler- 
ance, and m defence of the cause that had so signally triumphed in Virginia.' 
During his stay in New London, he published his ' rights of conscience ina- 
lienable,' and afterwards, from time to time, other works of the same character. 

In Massachusetts religious liberty had struggled for existence, and found 
some advocates from the first settlement of the State, but was kept constantly 
shackled by certificate laws, and other expedients of ecclesiastical tyranny. 



JAMES LELAND'S POSTEniTY.

At length, intlio hoginninE^ of 1811, a decision by Judge Parsons, that no society 
not incorporated by law could claim even the pitiful privilege of drawiiifj baelc 
money, awakened the fears of the dissenters; :iiid a circular address, accom- 
panied by a petition to the li-gisiature, praying for a revision of the laws res- 
pecting puhlic worslii]>, Avas cirenlated through the State. 

At the solicitation of the people of Cheshire, Mr. JiCland accepted a seat in 
the Legislature, lor the special purpose of aiding the measures petitioned for. 
The following extract from tlic speech of x\lr. L. in the Legislature of Mass., 
ill 1811, may serve to exhibit both his views and his manner of expressing 
them. 

'According to a late decision of the beiirh iu the County of Cumberland, 
which it is presumed is to be a precedent for future decision, these non-incor- 
porated societies are nobody, can do nothing, and are never to be known, ex- 
cept in shearing time, when money is wanted to support teachers they never 
hear. And nil this must be done for the good of the State. One hundred and 
seventeen years ago, wearing long hair was considered the cryins: sin of the 
land. A convention was called, March ISth, 1091, in Boston, to prevent it. 
After a long expostulation, the committee close thus : — 

"If any man will now presume to wear long hair, -let him know that Cod 
and man witnesseth against him." Our pious ancestors were for bobbing the 
hair, for the good of the colony, but now. Sir, not the hair, but the purses must 
be bobbed for the good of the State. The petitioners pray for the right of go- 
ing to heaven in that way which they believe is most direct ; and shall this 
be denied them ? Must they be obliged to pay legal toll, for walking the 
King's highway, which he has made free for all? Is not this a greater subor- 
dination, than to sail under British licenses, or to pay three pence on every 
pound of tea ? 

In Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, of 
the old colonies; and in Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio, the new States; there 
has never been any legal establishment of religion, nor any assessment to sup- 
port Protestant Christianity for the good of the States ; and yet. Sir, these States 
have stood and flourished as well as Massachusetts. 

Since the Revolution, all the old States, except two or three in New England, 
have established religious liberty upon its true foundation, and yet they are 
not sunk with earthquakes, or destroyed with fire and brimstone. Should the 
commonwealth, Mr. Speaker, proceed so far as to distribute all settlements and 
meeting-houses, which were procured by public taxes, among all the inhabit- 
ants, without regard to denomination, it is probable that the outcry of sacrilege, 
profanity, and infidelity would be echoed around ; and yet, Sir, all this has 
been done, in a State which has given birth to a Henry, a Washington, a Jef- 
ferson and a Madison ; each of whom contributed his aid to ellect the grand 
event, for which event the Presbyterians prayed and joined. 

It is there believed,Sir, that God hates robbery for burnt offerings ; and ought 
not Massachusetts to pay a decent respect to the voice of fifteen of her sister 



40 JAMES LELAIvD'S POSTERITY. 

States ! We should imagine that a laudable pride would prevent any one re- 
ligious society, from forcing another to pay her laborers, and that the same 
principle would not admit a public teacher to take money collected by dis- 
traint, from those who did not hear him; but in this particular, we find that 
religion is made a covert, to do that at which common honesty blushes ! Sir, 
it is not to disrobe towns of their corporate powers; no, let them go to heaven 
in such turnpike roads, and pay legal toll at every ministerial gate, which they 
choose. And what can they wish for more ? 

Accordmg to our best judgment, we cannot pay legal taxes for religious 
services descending even to the grade of chaplain for the Legislature. It is 
disrobing Christianity of her virgin beauty, turning the churches of Christ into 
creatures of State, and metamorphosing Gospel Ambassadors into State pen- 
sioners. 

If my information be correct, the town of Boston has enjoyed the liberty 
which we plead for, more than one hundred years, yet the inhabitants increase 
and are virtuous. Fifteen States, now in the Union, have all that we ask for; 
and is religion demolished in these Slates 7 

Mr. Speaker, let gentlemen turn their eyes to the religious magazines pub- 
lished in this State, by those who plead for la w-regulated religion, and they 
will find that while editors in one page plead for the old firm of Moses and 
Aaron — Ruler and Priest, — where the language is, you comb my hair and I'll 
scratch your elbows — you make laws to support me, and I'll persuade the 
people to obey you, — in the next page they will narrate the ' wonderful works 
of God,' in those States wherein there are no religious laws, and indeed, 
wherein the inliabitants know that religious establishments and assessments 
serve only to make one part of the community fools, and the other hypocrites, 
to support fraud, superstition, and violence on the earth. Let Christianit}^ 
stand upon its own basis, it is the greatest blessing that ever was among men ; 
but incorporate it into the. civil compact, and it becomes the mother of all cru- 
elties." 

We have already spoken of 5ir. Leland's narrow educational advantages 
in early life; but, limited as they were, through untiring and diligent industry, 
and close observation of men and things, he attained a mental culture, and an 
amount of knowledge that would have done credit to one favored v/ith the ad- 
vantages of the University. This is evident from his writings, as a whole, 
while some portions of them exhibit a logical acuteness, a literary discrimina- 
tion, and an elegance of diction, which fully sustain the estimate we have put 
upon his character as a scholar. Indeed, as a man of learning, although self- 
taught, he had few equals, and fewer superiors in the age in which he lived. 
It must, we think, be admitted by those at all conversant with his writings, 
that he was not deficient in poetical genius. Some pieces from his pen, have 
been classed, by competent judges, among the choicest specimens of devotional 
poetry. As an example, might be mentioned the evening hymn, commencing — 
" The day is past and gone." Also the lines on death, beginning — '' How

solemn the sight we l>chol(l !'' and others of ciiual merit, which cannot ho no- 
ticed in this liasty sketcli. 

The Rev. Joiin lichmd died Jan. 1 1th, 1811. In the language of the wri- 
ter before quoted, "llo was a man eminent above many, for piety and use- 
fulness, whose name is coimected with all that is pure in patricjtism, lovely in 
social and domestic virtues; philanthropic in feeling and action, arduous, dis- 
interested, and self-denying in the labors of the ministerial calling: one wh(»se 
place in society, in the church, in the rakiisofthe ministry, will not soon be 
filled in the hearts of those who knew him — never. 

He died as he li;id lived, a witness for the truth, testifying witli his last 
l)n>alh the value of that religion, and that only, which has its seat in the heart. 
His life had born unostentatious; his aspirations after worldly honors ever 
low and feeble; his humility and sense of dependence on God, deep felt and 
abiding, — thus he died. 

" Being asked, very near his end, what were his views of the future, be ex- 
claimed, with both hands extended upwards, and a smile on his countenance 
never to be forgotten, ' My prospects of heaven are clear.' He seemed al- 
ready to feel the everlasting rest laying its sweet influences over his soid, and 
bearing it up, taking away the sting of death.'" 

His remains lie beside those of his wife in Cheshire, and a '■ simple obelisk 
of blue marble, commemorative of both., mark their common resting place 
On its west side is inscribed the epitaph prepared by himself, some years be- 
fore his death. "Here lies the body of the Rev. John Leland, of Cheshire, 
who labored 07 years to promote piety, and vindicate the civil and religious 
rights of all men. He died January 1 Ith, 1841, aged SO years and 8 months." 

On the north side is the following: " Sarah, consort of Rev. John Leland. 
She died October 5th, 1837, aged 84 years." On the south: "This monu- 
ment was erected by the children of the deceased, to point out the resting place 
of their revered parents." 

We shall close this sketch, M'ith the following extract from his funeral ser- 
mon, by the Rev. John Alden : 

'• Great and good man, he is gone ! The tender and affectionate father, the* 
kind husband, the wise counsellor, emphatically the peace-maker, the social 
warm-hearted friend, the sage, patriot, the lover of sound doctrine, the elo- 
quent and unusually successful minister of Christ, is no more ! Is no more / 
He still lives, we doubt not. where his intellect has found congenial spirits, 
and a wider range in the upper empire of Jehovah. He lives below in the 
affections of thousands, and his works do follow him. To live like him is, 
to mourn over the sins of earth, and hold up God's everlasting truth to a dying 
world. To die like him, is to stand on the confines of earth, looking off into 
eternity, and depart with the prospect of heaven clear. To rest at last like 
him, is, we doubt not. to rest forever in the paradise of God."

42 JAMES LELAND'S POSTERITY. 

The children of Hamiah Lei and, who married Joseph Rice, were all iDorn 
in Grafton. Those of them, that were married, settled in Grafton, Sutton and 
Conway, Mass. Sarah in Grafton, Hannah, Mary and Daniel in Sutton. 
Elizabeth, Israel, Timothy and Caleb, in Conway; and they all remained 
through life where they first settled, except Caleb, who removed from Con- 
way to Phelps, New York. 

The ten children of Thankful Leland, who married Lemuel Powers, were 
horn in Northbridge or Grafton. Deliverance remained in Northbridge. Eze- 
kiel, Lydia, Prudence, David, Sarah, Thankful, Mary and Samuel, went to 
Croydon, N. H., and all except Thankful, remained there as long as they lived. 
Thankful married and settled in Charlestown, N. H., and Lemuel in Stillwa- 
ter, New York. 

The three children of Thomas, were bom in Sutton. Silence went to Athol, 
Mass.. and remained there through life. Margaret did not leave Sutton. 
Thomas was a soldier, in the war of the Revolution ; and after the peace, he 
went from Sutton to Schroon, in the northern part of the State of New York, 
where he resided several years. He afterwards lived in other places in the 
western part of New York. For some ^^ears before his death, he lived with 
his children in the northern part of the State of Ohio. 

The eleven children of Phineas, v/ere born upon the homestead estate, which 
he received from his father, situated upon the Blackstone River, in Grafton. 
Lydia married and died young, in Grafton. Phineas took the paternal estate, 
and remained upon it, for life. Eleazer first settled in Croydon, N. H., but soon 
returned to Grafton, where he spent the rest of his days. He was for many 
years one of the selectmen of Grafton, and in 1807, represented the town in 
the General Court. Joseph was in the army during a great part of the Rev- 
olutionary war. He commenced his service a private, or non-commissioned 
officer, and left the army a Lieutenant. After peace was established, he set- 
tled in Saco, Mame. During the whole active period of his life, he was con- 
nected in business there as a merchant. He was a judicious and discreet 
man; highly respected and much esteemed among the people of his acquain- 
tance. He was once a Senator in the Legislature of Massachusetts. He was 
on one or more occasions, an unsuccessful candidate for a seat in Congress ; 
but as, ui the political divisions of his day, he belonged to the minor party in his 
town and county, he could not expect often to be a successful candidate for po- 
litical honors. He v/as a man of quiet, domestic habits, and sustained an ir- 
reproachable moral character. 

David W., never left Grafton. Thomas married young. He remained in 
Grafton three or four years after his marriage. He then went to Conway, Mass.; 
but after a residence of one or two years, he returned to Grafton. < He continued 
in Grafton till 1795, when he removed to Chester, Vermont, and settled in a wil- 
derness part of the town. The hardships and privations of new country life were 
his lot for several years; but by great effort and constant labor, in the course 
'• of a few years, he reclaimed from its native wildness a well cultivated farm.

47 



James Wliipple's four sons wore lioiii in lliinhvidv. .lacoh rr'niaincd throuf;h 
lil'e near the place of liis hulh. wnd died in Dana, a town taken iVom Hard- 
wick. David settled in ( .'iccnwich, an adjoininu; town. Jmries continued to live 
in Hardwick or Dana, till 1817, when he rejnoved to (Jlsej^o, county of Otsego, 
New York ; and alter a lew years residence there, went to Sprinu^ficld in the 
same county, where he continued niiiii tlic finii- of" his death. Moses never left 
the place of his nativity. Their decendants, as appears hy tlu; foregoing table, 
are scattered into man}' different parts of the country. 

S([nire Whipple is descended from Henry Leland, the conmion ancestor of 
iheLeland lannly iu America, throuj^h llbenezcr Leland of Shnrhurnc. James 
Leland and Jerusha Leland. who married Jacob Whipple of (irafton ; James 
AVhipple of Hardwick, Mass.. anil James Whipi)le of f^])ringlield, New York. 
He was born in Hardwick, Masr., Septend^er I6th, 1S04. His father was 
a farmer, and he labored upon the farm during the early period of his life. 
From the age of eight to thirteen, lie attended the common district school, in 
Hardwick, about six months each year, and labored the other six, part of the 
time in a cotton factory, and part upon the farm. In 1817, his father removed 
to Otsego county. New York, and his son Squire continued to reside with him 
n])on the farm, for the five succeeding years; attending school about three 
months each year, and laboring nine. At the age of eighteen or nineteen, he 
taught school a short time. From 1822 to 1829, he attended Academical schools 
three or four months each year, and was employed either in private study or 
agricultural and mechanical labor the other eight or nine. "With the aid 
of these slender advantages for preparation, he was enabled in the year 1829, 
to enter the senior class in Union College, and at the expiration of the year 
to receive the degree of A. B. After he left college, he Avas employed be- 
tween one and two years, as an assistant engineer, upon the Baltimore and Ohio 
rail-road. He then commenced manufacturing mathematical instruments, to 
which business he has devoted a part of his time ever since, and has construc- 
ted a considerable number of valuable instruments. In 1839 or 1840, he de- 
signed the plan of a boat scale, for the Erie Canal Enlargement, and subse- 
cpiently built a scale by contract at Utica, calculated to weigh drauglits of 
three or lour hundred tons; a work which has attracted a good deal of notice, 
and excited considerable admiration, as a machine possessing the essential 
requisites of strength, durability, convenience, simplicity and cheapness, to a 
degree scarcely to be exceeded. This work has served as a model for several 
others of the kind. 

About the same time, he designed tlu^ plan of an iron fnissed bridge, for 
which letters patent were obtained, and on which plan some six or eight bridges 
of from 70 to 100 feet have been built over the Erie Canal enlargement. Be- 
tween 1840 and 1847, he conducted several preliminary surveys for canals and 
rail-roads, in New York and other States. 

In 184G and 1S47, he prepared and published a small elementary and practical 
work, on the subject of bridge building. His work has received Mattering no-

tices from distinguished engineers, and it is unquestionably a production of 
much merit. It is thus noticed in an article published in the American Rail- 
R-oad Journal, printed in Philadelphia, under date of May 8th, 1847. 

"A treatise upon the construction of bridges, has lately been published, from 
the pen of S. Whipple, Esquire, C. E., of Utica, New York. 

Mr. Whipple has given much time and attention to this important subject; 
and as he is a gentleman of high attainments, both scientific and practical,and 
warmly devoted to mechanical pursuits, his treatise is prepared in a very able 
manner, and will, no doubt, be productive of much good. 

There is no branch of engineering so little understood by men of the pro- 
fession, as that of the proper construction of bridges. This is evident from 
the diversity of plans adopted upon public works, which are as various almost 
as the works themselves^a state of things somewhat remarkable, as there 
cannot well be more than one best plan for bridges of the same dimensions 
and character, and which can only be accounted for by a want of that com- 
plete knowledge of the subject requisite for forming a correct judgement. 
This want, Mr Whipple aims to supply, and he begins at the right place, viz : 
at the foundation, by stating clearly the principles which should govern, and 
thence proceeding to the application of those principles in the arrangement of 
plans suited to various circumstances. 

The treatise of Mr Whipple is drawn up in that plain and concise manner 
which indicates a clear and accurate mind, imbued with a very thorough 
knowledge of the subject. It is a work highly creditable to the profession, 
and will do honor to it at home and abroad. His illustrations and application 
of mechanical principles are brought as much as possible within the compre- 
hension of all. He promises, if his present treatise meets with sufficient 
encouragement, to follow it by another of far more strictly practical character, 
giving full details of plans suited to different circumstances and localities. 
We trust he will be so far encouraged in his present effort, as to induce him 
to persevere until he has accomplished all that he proposes upon the subject on 
which he is engaged. 

He is at present, (1849,) almost exclusively engaged in the construction of 
bridges of different dimensions, both of wood and iron, (principally of iron.) 
for rail-roads and common roads, in various parts of New York. 

For more than thirty years past, he has discarded the use of animal food 
of all kinds, except the products of the dairy ; mainly from a long cherished 
aversion to violence and cruelty to dumb creatures. And about the year 1847, 
he prepared and published a small work entitled, ' The way to happiness, be- 
ing an essay on the motives to human actions, and the fundamental principles 
of morality :' in which he defends, and recommends with great ability, his pe- 
culiar system of diet, as being favorable to good health, rational economy and 
sound morality.

Solomon Leland, son of Solomon, settled upon the Androscoggin river in 
the county of Oxford, Me., when that part of the country was a wilderness, 
where he now resides. His brother, Silas, resided several years in Nashville. 
in the south-westerly part of the state of Illinois. From Nashville he removed 
to Galena, in the north-west corner of the state, and from Galena to a place 
called New Diggings in the state of Wisconsin, where he now resides. All 
the other children of Solomon Leland remained in Sutton, or Millbury, a town 
taken from Sutton.

Jonathan Morse was among the first settlers upon the Androscoggin river, 
in the county of Oxford, Maine. His sister Mary and Silence, soon after set- 
tled near him. 

Moses Leland Morse, son of Moody Morse and Abigail Leland, was born in 
Sutton, Mass., May 19th, 1781. His father and mother both died before he 
was twelve years of age. He resided upon a farm until the age of fourteen, 
attending school two or three months each year and laboring nine or ten. He 
served an apprenticeship as a watchmaker and goldsmith, from fourteen to 
twenty-one. After he became free, he carried on business as a watchmaker 
and goldsmith for several years, part of the time in Keene, N. H., and part of 
the time in Cambridge, Mass. He was married in 1804. His wife was a sis- 
ter of the late Judge Sibley of Detroit, Mich. He at an early age became dis- 
tinguished as a machinist. In 1813 or 1814, he invented a beautiful and useful 
instrument for weighing gold, silver and electuaries, which he called a pendu- 
lum scale. It was an ornamental and convenient article for counting rooms, so 
long as gold was circulated by weight. He received for this invention a patent i 
from the government of the United States. He also in the year 1814, invented 
a machine for making pins, for which he likewise received a patent. This 
machine would draw the wire, cut, point, head and drop sixty pins in a minute. 
It was the first of the kind put in operation in the United States. He sold his 
machine with the patent right. The persons who purchased them, after making 
some improvements upon the machine, put it in operation in England. And it is 
said to be the basis on which most of the pin manufactories now in operation 
in England, are founded. Mr. Morse was employed for several years, as an 
agent in an extensive manufacturing establishment, owned by Asa Waters, 
Esq., in Milbury. He finally became connected in a large cutlery estab- 
lishment in Worcester, Avhere he died, on the second day of September 1831. 
He was a truly pious and good man. And in an article in the Massachusetts 
Spy, a newspaper printed in Worcester, under date of September 7th, 1831, the 
following just tribute was paid to his worth : — " Deacon Morse was a man of 



JAMES LKLAND'S POS'TOIUTY. 'j'9 

great mcchaiiioul ini^cnuity, to whom the country is indobtod for several useful 
inventions, ilo was the projector, and to tlir time of his death, the principal 
manager of the extensive cutlery estahhshnient in this town. I If was an af- 
fectionate iuisl)and, a kind father, a faithful friend, an exemj>lary and valuable 
citizen and rneelc and pious christiim. Few men in his situation in life, would 
be more mis.sed, and the void which he has left in the circle in which he moved, 
will not he readily nor easily supplied." 

Prudence Morse married in K(>ene, N. II., and resided there with her hus- 
)and several years. They then removed to Wilton, Maine^ and from AVilton 
to Bloom field, where she died. 

Charles Morse, son of Moody Morse and Abigail licland, has his descent 
"rom Henry Leland, the common ancestor of the Leland family in America, 
through Mbenezer Leland of KSherlnune, James Leland of G'rafton, Moses Leland 
and Abigail Leland of Sutton, Mass. lie was born in Sutton, Mass., October 
27, 1785, where he lived till he was fifteen years old. At an early age he was 
deprived ol kindly parental intluences — always so powerful in the developc- 
ment of character — by the decease of both father and mother. His father, 
Moody Morse, had by his own industry, acquired a moderate competence, which 
was not sullicient to procure for his children more than the ordinary means of 
common school education. It is well known that these means wereexceedinsly 
imited at that early day. The death of JMoody Morse and wife, was followed 
3y the separation of their family. Charles went to live with Esquire King of 
Sutton, a wealthy farmer and estimable citizen. Having received from nature 
excellent parts and a good temper, he grew into favor with his aged patron, 
who was glad to impart to him those lessons Avhich he had gathered from a 
long experience. This was an interesting period of his life. He now came to 
realize the fact that he must depend upon himself, that he had no arm to lean 
upon for assistance, and that the only inheritance he could claim was a char- 
acter of undoubted honor and integrity. The circumstances of his situation 
induced those habits of thought and action, which in after life ripened into traits 
of character, giving him the power to plan wisely and to execute successfully. 
It was also during this period, ere the etfervescence of boyish passions had sub- 
sided, that youthful vigor prompted him to a rash act which entailed its etlects 
upon his subsequent life. It was attempting to do at mowing, the work of a 
man of twenty-five, while he had yet attained to only half that age. He was 
unable to do the least labor for two years and a half, and he probably never 
recovered entirely from the shock given to his constitution. A change of cli- 
mate was recommended. A new country would probably aflect him favorably. 
He accordingly accompanied his brother Jonathan on his return to the new 
home he had formed for himself among the forests of Maine, in what is now 
called Dixfield. The journey by water, and the fresh invigorating influences 
of -forest life, soon imparted that strength which he sought. He sulfered the 
vicissitudes and deprivations not unusual in a ncAvly settled country; but by his 
perseverance and integrity, he succeeded in gaining the confidence and esteem of 



80 



JAJMES LELAM)'S POSTEEITY. 



the community in which he hved. In 1809, he took up his residence in Wilton, 
where he resided until his death. His cast of mind fitted him for directing 
in the affairs of men, and he became a highly esteemed and influential citizen, 
enjoying that popularity which is not sought after, but which follows from a 
just appreciation of moral and intellectual worth, directed by a sound and dis- 
criminating judgment and that practical wisdom called common sense. Hence, 
his counsel was sought after by his neighbors in their individual concerns, by 
the town in the management of its municipal affairs, by the militia as its com- 
mander, and b)^ his fellow citizens as county commissioner, and as repre- 
sentative and senator in the state legislature. In these several situations he 
acquitted himself with honor. His deportment was modest. His benevolence 
and sympathy embraced all the sons of affliction without distinction of sect, 
clime or color. But it was reserved for religion to chasten and polish a char- 
acter already estimable in the sight of man. In 1823 he made a public pro- 
fession of the Saviour, and soon after united with a branch of his visible church, 
and ever after maintained the character of an active and consistent Christian. 
Moses Leland Morse^ son of Charles Morse, was educated at Bowdoin College, 
Brunswick, Maine, and received his degree of A. B. in 1846.

Eight of the nine children of the Rev. John Leland — Betsy, Hannah B., Polly, 
John D., Sally, Lucy, Fanny, and Nancy— were born in the State of Virginia, 
and Lemuel, the other child, was born in Cheshire, Massachusetts.- They re- 
sided for several years in Cheshire, and were all married there. His descend- 
ants are numerous, and the above tabular account shows that they are widely 
scattered through the country. 

John D. Leland, the eldest son, remained in Cheshire for several years after 
his marriage. He was a representative in the General Court of Massachusetts, 
from that town, in the year 1813. He afterwards removed to Deeriield, Oneida 
county, JXew York, and was for a considerable number of years clerk of the 
courts for that county; and he is now (1849) an opulent farmer and trader in 
the town of Deerfield. 

Elijah Ford, the grandson of John Leland, born in 1805, is a lawyer of 
highly respectable standing at the bar, in the city of Buffalo, in the western 
part of the State of New York. He is descended from Henry Leland, the 
common ancestor of the Leland family in America, through Ebenezer Leland 
of Sherburne, James Leland of Grafton, Mass., James Leland of Phelps, N.Y., 
John Leland of Cheshire, Mass., and Polly Leland, who married Isaac Ford, 
and died in Hubberton, N. Y., in 1840.

lege the degree of A. I>. in I)<c. l'-^'2.'). After this, for more tlian a year, he 
edited a religious newspujx'r in Wiisliington City, i-ntitled the (Johnnhiaii Star. 
Oct. 34, 1827, lie was ordained and settled as pastor of the .Middle Street 
Baptist Ghnrcli, in Portsmouth, N. H. In 1S3I), he received from \Vat«;rville 
College, in Maine, the degree of A. M. in Nov. 1S32, he removed to Boston, 
and took the pastoral charge of the Baldwin Place Baptist Church. In 1835, 
he was elected one of tjic^ Corresponding Secretaries of the Baptist (Joiicral 
Convention of the Cuited Stales, but declined the appointment ; and in 1811, 
he was again elected to the same office, which he also declined. In 1810, he

his duties as preacher and pastor: but he has sustained official relations to 
numerous benevolent societies, and performed a large amount of service on 
various Boards and Committees. He has also written considerably for the 
periodical press, edited several valuable works, and published some produc- 
tions of his own pen. With a constitution naturally feeble, he has ever 
labored under special disadvantages; but, by the blessing of Providence, he 
has been able to execute far more than, in the earlier part of his public life, his 
friends anticipated. 

He has his descent from Henry Lelaiid, the common ancestor of the Leland 
race in America, through Ebenezer Leland, of Sherburne, James Leland, of 
Grafton, Thankful Leland, who married Lemuel Powers, of IVorthbridge, all 
in Massachusetts, Lydia Powers, who married Jonah Stow, of Croydon, and

"NVilliiuu Freeman Cooper was born in Croydon, New Hampshire, on the 
twentietli day of September, 1802. He has his descent from Henry Leland, 
the common ancestor of the Leland race in America, throngh Ebenezer Leland 
of Sherbnrno, James l<cland of Crafton, Thankful Leland who married Lem- 
uel Powers of Northbridge, all in Massachusetts, and Mary Powers who mar- 
ried Sherman Cooper, of Croydon, New Hampshire. He is a physician and 
surgeon. He remained with his parents upon a small farm in Croydon until 
he was eighteen years of age. His parents had a large family and a small 
share of this world's goods. While he resided with them he attended the 
common district school two or three months each year, and labored upon the 
farm the other portion of the time. From the age of eighteen to twenty-two 
he was employed part of the time in study at the academy in Newport, New 
Hamp.shire, and tiie otlier part in teaching school to obtain money to defray the 
expense of his education. In 1824, at the age of twenty-two, he commenced 
his professional studies with Dr. Elijah Cooper, a surgeon and physician of con- 
siderable eminence in Newport. He pursued his studies with Dr. Cooper, and 
at the medical school in Bowdoin College, Brunswick, ]\Iaine, until 1S2G, when 
he received from that college a degree of M. D. He went into practice as a 
physician and surgeon in 182(3, in Newport, and continued thereabout one year. 
In 1827 he removed to Kelloggsville, in the county of Cayuga and state of 
New York, and commenced business therein his profession among entire stran- 
gers. His practice was small at first, but in the course of a few years it became 
extensive and lucrative, and he is now, in 1S50, cue of the most celebrated sur- 
geons in the western part of New York.

ersfield, Vt., from 1799 to 1810, the time of his death. She then returned 
to Grafton, Mass. She has since resided a part of the time in Grafton, 
a part in Milbury, and part in Westborough. where she now resides. Her hus- 
band was a highly respectable man. He had a good common education, and 
was employed in teaching school during the winter season, for several years. 
Soon after he settled in Weathersfield, Vt., he was elected a captain in the 
militia, and in a short time a major. He was for a series of years a represen-

tative from the town of Weathersfield, in the Vermont legislature. He was a 
truly pious man and an exemplary member of the Methodist Episcopal church. 
His death caused deep lamentation in his family and among his neighbors, and 
the manner of his death was such as greatly to augment their grief While he 
was standing upon a bridge, over a small stream near his dwelling-house, at 
the time of an unusual flood of water, in that part of the country, a mill-dam, 
just above the bridge, was swept down by the force of thecurrent, by which 
the bridge on which he stood was carried away, and he fell amidst the foaming 
waters and crashing timbers, and perished. He was of the Leland family, and 
had his descent from Henry Leland, the common ancestor, through Ebenezer 
Leland of Sherburne, James Leland of Grafton, Jerusha Leland who married 
Jacob Whipple of Grafton, Jerusha Whipple who married David Haven of 
Framingham, and Hannah Haven who married Nahum Stone of Grafton. 

Gregory D. Stone, son of Gregory Stone and Prudence Leland, was born in 
Weathersfield, Vt., in the year 1800. He was educated at Union College in 
Schenectady, N. Y., and received his degree of A. B. in the year 1823. 
He studied law, and was admitted to the bar in the state of Alabama. He 
commenced practice in Resselville, in the county of Franklin, in the northern 
part of that state, about the year 1825, and continued in practice there until the 
time of his death in 1838. He also held the office of judge of the orphan's 
court, for the county of Franklin, for about ten years. 

John Leland, son of Eleazer, was born in Grafton, Mass., and remained 
there until the year 1804. During that year he was married, and settled 
upon a small farm in Springfield, in the state of Vermont. He remained 
there till 1813, when he returned to his native town, and he continued to re- 
side in Grafton and the neighboring towns of Shrewsbury and Westborough, 
until his death in 1834, 

Sherman Leland, who is connected with Henry Leland, the progenitor of 
the Leland race in America, by a line of descent through Ebenezer Leland of 
Sherburne, James Leland, Phineas Leland, and Eleazer Leland of Grafton, 
Mass., was born in Grafton, on the twenty-ninth day of March, 1783. 
He remained in his father's family, upon a farm in Grafton, until he was over 
twenty years of age. He attended the common district schools from two to 
four months each year, and was employed the other portion of the time in 
agricultural or mechanical labor. When he was in his twentieth year he 
taught a district school in Grafton about two months, and attended school 
about two. When he was in his twenty-first year, he taught school about 
four months in Weathersfield, Vt. In the spring of 1804, when he was 
twenty-one years of age, he attended a grammar school, kept by the Rev. Dr. 
Crane, in Northbridge, four or five weeks. During the summer and fall of that 
year, he was a student four or five months, at the academy in Woodstock, 
Conn. In the fall, winter, and spring of 1804 and 1805, he was employed 
in teaching a district school, about five months, in Brooklyn, Conn. At

1814, he removed from that part of the country, and settled in Roxbury, Mass. 
In the beginning of the year 1815, he opened an ofiice in Boston, and again 
entered upon the duties of his profession in the counties of Suffolk and Norfolk. 
He has ever since been in practice in those two counties, but for the last five 
or six years, he has declined all business which required his attendance in 
court. He was a representative from the town of Roxbury in the legislature 
of Massachusetts, for the years 1818, 1819, 1820, and 1821. He was also a 
delegate from Roxbury in the convention for a revision of the constitution in 
1820, on the separation of Maine from Massachusetts; and while he was a 
member of the house of representatives in 1820, he was one of the committee 
raised to consider the subject of the separation of Maine from Massachusetts. 
He was also, during the same year, one of the managers chosen by the house to

conduct the prosecution for the impeachment of the Hon. James Prescott, judge 
of probate for the county of Middlesex. For the year 1821 he was chairman of 
the committee on elections. He was a member of the senate of Massachusetts 
from the county of Norfolk for the years 1823 and 1824, and during the tem- 
porarjr absence of the Hon. Nathaniel Silsbee, the president, he was elected 
president, pro-tem. During both years of his service in the senate, he was 
chairman of the committee on new trials. This committee had charge of all 
the matters which are now committed in Massachusetts to the committee on the 
judiciary, and the committee on matters of probate and chancery. He was 
again a member of the house of representatives from Roxbury for the year 
1825, and was chairman of the committee on the judiciary. He was also 
appointed a member of a joint committee raised to sit during the recess of the 
legislature, to investigate the concerns of the state prison, and report such re- 
form in the government of that institution as might be found necessary. In 
1824 he was a candidate for representative in congress for the Norfolk con- 
gressional district in Massachusetts. The Hon. John Bailey was his competi- 
tor, and after five or six animated contests at the polls, Mr. Bailey was elected 
by a small majority. In 1826, the government of Harvard University con- 
fered upon him the honorary degree of Master of Arts. On the 29th of 
June, 1827, he was appointed a master in chancery for the county of Norfolk, 
which office he held for eight successive years. On the twelfth of May, 1828, 
he was appointed an inspector of the state prison, and continued to hold the 
ofiice under three successive appointments for twelve years. He was again 
a member of the senate for the county of Norfolk for the years 1828 and 1829, 
and was president of the senate for the year 1828, and chairman of the com- 
mittee on the judiciary for the year 1829. On the 26th day of January, 1830, 
he was appointed judge of the court of probate for the county of Norfolk. 
He accepted the appointment and immediately commenced discharging the 
duties of the ofiice. He has continued to hold the office ever since, being a 
period of more than twenty years. In April, 1837. he was appointed a justice of 
the peace for all the counties in the commonwealth. He made the most of 
the small advantages which he had for education preparatory to his professional 
studies, but his chief reliance for knowledge in science, literature and law, has 
been upon his own unaided exertions, made both before and since his admis- 
sion to the bar. He has on no occasion within the last nineteen years, used 
any thing as a beverage but cold water, and for the last fifteen years he has 
abstained from the use of all kinds of animal food, except milk, butter and 
cheese, and he has now, in his sixty-seventh year, as vigorous health as he had 
at forty-five: for the last eighteen years he has been exempt from all the 
common diseases of life.

JAMES LELAKD'S POSTERITY. 



Mahalea Leland was bom and married in Grafton, but soon after her mar- 
riage removed with her husband to Union, Conn., where she now resides. 

Joseph Leland early in life left Grafton, Mass., his native place, for Charles- 
ton, S. C, in which city he has since continued, a period of about forty years, 
at the head of the extensive and well known house of Leland Brothers & Co. 
He is a successful merchant, and the firm of which he is head, is still amongst 
the largest commission houses in South Carolina. He is characterized by 
boldness of conception and energy in execution. His residence is at Grafton, 
Worcester county, Mass. He has his descent from Henry Leland, the com- 
mon ancestor of the Leland family in America, through Ebenezer Leland of 
Sherburne, Mass., James Leland, Phineas Leland and David W. Leland, of 
Grafton, Mass. 

David W. Leland, before attaining his majority, also went to Charleston, 
S. C, and early became a partner in the house of Leland, Brothers & Co., and 
he is still a member of the company. He has been an extensive traveller, as 
well in Europe as America, and he is distinguished for acts of liberal private 
benevolence. 

Gardner S. Leland, another member of this commercial house, died of consump- 
tion, at Nice, Italy, in 1822, whither he had gone for the benefit of his health. 

Phineas W. Leland entered Brown University, Providence, R. L, in 1821, but 
left college before the expiration of the usual term of four years, and studied 
medicine with Dr. George C. Shattuck, of Boston. He received the degree of 
M. D., at Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Me., in 1826, and practised in his 
profession for some time at Medfield, Mass., but abandoned it in 1834, on receiv- 
ing the appointment of collector of the customs, for the district of Fall River ; 
which ofiice he held for twelve years. Dr. Leland was one of the senators for 
Bristol county, in the year 1843, and was elected president of the senate. His 
residence is at Fall River, Mass. He is connected with Henry Leland, the com- 
mon ancestor, by a line of descent through Ebenezer Leland of Sherburne, Mass., 
James Leland, Phineas Leland, and David W. Leland, of Grafton, Mass. 



The descendants of THOMAS LELAND, son of Phineas Leland, and 
grandson of James Leland, of Grafton, Mass. ; born in Grafton, 176U ; mar- 
ried Lydia Sherman; and died at Chester, Vt, in 1830.

Ephraim S. Leland since the above table was prepared has removed from 
Sherburne, Yt., to the state of Wisconsin, where he now (1850) resides. 

Thomas Leland, who had his descent from Henry Leland the common 
ancestor, through Ebenezer Leland of Sherburne, James Leland and Phineas 
Leland, of Grafton, Mass., and Thomas Leland of Chester, Yt., was born in 
Conway, Mass., in the year 1784. Before he was two years of age his parents 
left Conway and took him with them to Grafton, Mass., where they continued 
to "reside eight or ten years. In 1795 the whole family removed from Grafton to 
Chester, Yt. He remained with his parents in Che.ster, until he was about 
twenty years of age. In 1 804 he began his preparatory studies for college, 
and entered the freshman class of Middlebury college in 1805. After the usual 
term of four years he received his degree of A. B., from that institution in 
1809. Immediately after he left college, he entered the office of the Hon. 
J. H. Hubbard, of Windsor, Yt. , as a student of law. He continued under the 
instruction of Mr. Hubbard for three years, and until he was admitted to the 
bar, in 1812. He commenced his professional life in Windsor, and continued 
in practice there for about twenty-two years. During this period, his time 
and attention were especially devoted to the duties of his profession, but he 
took some part in the municipal concerns of the town, and for one or two years 
was a representative in the state legislature. In the year 1834 he removed

from Windsor to Clarpmnnt, N. II. T[o liere renewed and prosecuted his 
professional pursuits with fresh ardor. He soon ohtained an extensive prac- 
tice and an elevated rank at the l)ar. He assichiously devoted himself to tlio 
lahorious duties of his j)rofession, until a short time hf-fore his death, .March 
3, 1849. He was regarded as one of the first lawyers in the western part of 
the state. As a chancery lawyer he had few ecjuals in the state. He was a 
Avorthy citizen, a t^ood hu.sband and a kind father. He was a profes.sor of 
religion, and he had been for many years before his death, a worthy and. 
exemplary member of the JOpiscopal church.

Caleb W. Leland, son of Joshua Leland, was bprn in Chester, Vt. He remained 
in his father's family, upon a farm in his native town, until he was twenty-one 
years of age. After he left home, in 1810 or 1811, he was employed six or seven 
years by Abijah White, of W'atertown, Mass., a large provision dealer. After he 
left Mr. White, he was concerned as a dealer in provisions in Boston, Mass., 
seventeen or eighteen years. In 1836 or 1837 he removed from Boston to 
Charlestown, now Somcrvillc, Mass.. where he has ever since resided. Since 
he left Boston he has been engaged in farming. He has been, for several years 
one of the selectmen of Somerville, and for two or three years he represented 
the town in the general court. In all his business concerns he has been 
remarkably successful; and he is regarded as a man of wealth. 

Ziba A. Leland is a lawyer of high standing at the bar, and extensive prac- 
tice in his profession, at Auburn, in the county of Cayuga, and state of New 
York. He is connected with Henry Leland, the common ancestor of the Le- 
land family in America, by a line of descent through Ebenezer Leland of 
Sherburne, James Leland and Phincas Leland of Grafton, JMass., and Joshua 
Leland of Chester, Vt. He was born in Chester, in the year 1791. and 
remained with his parents upon a farm in that town during his minority. 
From 1812 to 1815 he was employed in preparatory studies for college. In 
the summer of the latter year he entered the junior class of Vermont Univer- 
sity, Burlington, Vt., and continued a student in that institution for one year.

JAMES LELAND'S POSTEEITY. 



At the expiration of the year he entered the senior class in Middlebury College, 
Vermont, and remained there for one term. He then left college, and com- 
menced the study of law in Schenectady, N. Y. He continued a student there 
until the fall of 1817, when he removed to Utica, N. Y., and continued his 
legal studies there until January, 1820, when he was admitted to practice as an 
attorney of the supreme court. In the spring of 1820, he commenced practice 
in his profession at Owego, in the county of Tioga, and state of New York. 
He continued in practice there until November, 1822, when he removed to 
Bath, in the county of Steuben, N. Y., where he continued to attend to the 
duties of his profession, until May, 1845, when he removed to Auburn, N. Y., 
where he now resides. He held the office of first judge of the county of Steu- 
ben, being the presiding judge of the court of common pleas, from 1838 to 
1843. He was a representative in the legislature of New York, from the 
county of Steuben, under two annual elections, for the years 1842 and 1843. 
During the first year he was at the head of the standing committee on rail- 
roads; and during the second, at the head of the committee on banks and 
insurance. His talents and information gave him a commanding influence in 
the house. 

Thomas J.Leland, son of Joshua Leland, was bom in Chester, Yt, and resided 
with his parents in that town, during his minority. Soon after he attained the 
age of twenty-one he commenced business as a provision dealer in Boston, 
Mass. He resides in Somerville, Mass., and for about fifteen years past he 
has been a member of a mercantile house in Boston, extensively concerned in 
the provision business. 

Benjamin F. Leland, son of Joshua Leland, was born and brought up in 
Chester, Vt. After he was of age he resided several years in Boston, Mass., 
He then went to the state of Ilhnois, and after remaining there a few years, 
settled in Lowell, in the county of Dodge, state of Wisconsin, where he now 
resides. He is a farmer and trader.

Isaac Leland. son of Isaac, and grandson of Ebenezer, was born in Holliston 
Mass., married, and resided there, till about the year 1772, when he removed 
with his family to Jaffrey, N. H. He served as a soldier in the Revolutionary 
army, in 177G and 1777, and was killed in battle near New York city, in 1777. 
His children, John, Hannah, Isaac, IMary, Anna and Betsy, were born in Hol- 
liston, or Sherbune, Mass., and Lucy was born in Jaffrey. John was engaged 
as a mariner in the early part of his life. He married in 1790, and settled in 
Ipswich, Mass., where he carried on business as a tarfiner and currier, until 
1800, when he removed to Londonderry. N. H., where he resided about fifteen 
years. He afterwards lived in Nashua and some other places in New Hamp- 
shire, for about twelve years. He removed to Charlestown, (now Somerville,) 
Mass.. about the year 1827, where he has resided for about twent)--two years. 

Isaac, brother of John, when he was a young man M^ent from Jaffrey, N. H., 
to Dedham, Mass., and was employed for several years as a laborer among 



152 



ISAAC LELAM)'S POSTERITY. 



the farmers in that town. He at length married and settled there. Deborah 
Fairbanks, whom he married, had before her marriage to him a son, by the 
name of Richard Williams. On his marriage he adopted her child and 
allowed him to take his name, and he has ever since been called Richard Leland. 
Isaac Leland continued to live in Dedham for twenty-five or thirty years. 
He then removed to Holdeii, Mass., where he has continued to reside till the 
present time, 1850. He has no issue. 

Richard Leland, the adopted son of Isaac Leland, is about sixty years of 
age. He, with his v/ife and family of several children, is living in Dedham, 
Mass. His family, and that of the late Judge John D. Leland, of Missouri, 
are the only persons of the name of Leland, found in America, who are not 
connected by a regular line of descent with Henry Leland, the common 
ancestor of the Leland family in America. 

Hannah Leland, Mary Leland, Anna Leland, and Lucy Leland, sisters of 
John and Isaac, are supposed to have been married in Jaffrey, N. H., and to 
have families of children living in that part of the country ; but to whom they 
were married, and the names and number of their children are unknown. 



The descendants of JOHN LELAND, son of Isaac Leland and grandson 
of Isaac Leland; born in Holliston, Mass., in 1761; married Anna Annibal; 
and is now (18.511) living in Somerville, Mass.

It appears from the town records of Sherburne, Mass., that eight of the nine 
cliildreii of Aniariah Lehind were born in that town, and it is liighly probable 
that the other, Khoda, was also born there. Tiie children, with their parents, 
left Sherburne, between 1755 and 17G0, and settled in Providence, R. I., about 
the year 17G0. They all remained in Providence for seven or eight years. 
Abner, the oldest son, left Providence ahout the year 1770, and settled in Sut- 
ton, Mass., where he remained until his death in 17S3. His daughters, Susan- 
nah, Joanna, and Philena, married and settled in Sutton. His two sons, James 
and William, on the death of their lather, went to live with their grandfather, 
upon that part of the island of Mount Desert, in Maine, Mdiich afterwards 
received the corporate name of Eden. They married in Eden and continued to 
reside there, or in the neighboring town of Trenton, for many years; but at a 
late period of their lives they both removed to the county of Washington, Me., 
and remained there until their deaths. His other two daughters, Chloe and 
Nancy, married and settled in Providence, R. I., or its vicinity. Jesse, the 
second son of Amariah, established himself in Johnston, R. I., and continued 
there through life. His son Joseph, married in Johnston, and resided there 
for several years, and then removed to Barton, Yt., where he remained till his 
death. Daniel, his other son, settled in Killingly, Conn. His daughter, 
Luthana, lived and died in Attleborougii, Mass., and his two other daughters, 
Margery and Meriba, both married and died in Providence. Sibella, oldest 
daughter of Amariah Leland, lived, married and died in Smithfield, R. I. 
Betty resided with her husband in Sutton, Mass., and died there. Her two chil- 
dren were born in Sutton. Her son Ebenezer was never married. Her daughter 
Betsy was married in Sutton, March 29th, 179S, and she continued to reside 
there with her husband, Timothy Lamson, for eight years. They then lived 
together in Oxford, Mass., for four years, in Dudley, JMass., one year, and in 
Pomfret, Conn., three years. And she continued to reside in Pomfret, after 
the death of her husband in 1S14, for several years. In 1S27 she removed to 
Providence, R. I., where she has ever since remained. Chloe, the third 



156 



AMARIAH LELAND'S POSTERITY. 



daughter of Amariah, was never married. She hved many years in Sutton, 
but died in Sherburne, Mass. Abigail hved with her husband in Sutton, 
Mass., and died there. Rhoda married in Rhode Island or Massachusetts, 
removed with her husband to Troy, N. Y., and died there. 

Ezra Leland, third son of Amariah, settled with his father upon the island 
of Mount Desert, in Maine, about the year 1769. He continued to reside upon 
that part of the island, which constituted the town of Eden, until his death, 
Ebenezer Leland, youngest son of Amariah, remained in Providence until after 
the commencement of the American Revolution. He was in the military 
service of the United States during a very considerable part of the war. Soon 
after the peace in 1783, he established himself, with his father and brother 
Ezra, upon Mount Desert, in Maine, where he continued to reside until his 
death, in 1808. He was a sergeant in the army during the war, and a captain 
in the militia after the peace. His children were all born in Eden. His eldest 
daughter, Ursula, was married in Eden, and she has continued to reside there 
ever since. Her husband was a master mariner, and died several years ago. 
With few advantages for education, she has acquired a considerable fund of 
information. She is a woman of energy, prudence and discretion, and has an 
uncommon share of practical common sense. And she is a truly pious chris- 
tian, and a worthy member of the Baptist church. 



The descendants of JOANNA LELAND, daughter of Abner Leland, and 
granddaughter of Amariah Leland : born in Providence, R. L, in 1760 ; 
married Francis Putnam ; and died in Sutton, Mass.

Adfia, 
Ellen, 







Mrs. Mary M. EUiott, the daughter of Timothy liamson and Betsy Boice, 
was born in Sutton, Mass., Jan. 3d, 1799. And she removed with her parents 
Avhile young, from Sutton to Oxford, from Oxford to Dudley, Mass.. and from 
Dudley to Pomfret, Conn., where she was married to Lemuel H. Elliott, April 
28, 1817. She has her descent from Henry liclaud, the common ancestor of 
the Leland family in America, through Ebenczer Leland of Sherburne, Mass., 
Amariah Leland of Eden, Me., Betsy Leland, who married Benjamin Boice 
of Sutton, Mass., and Betsy Boice, who married Timothy I,amsoii of 
Pomfret, Conn. Soon after her marriage, she settled with her husband in 
Providence. R. I., where they have continued to reside to the present time, 
1850. She has strong hopes that she experienced a saving conversion to

AJ»IARIAH LELAXD'S POSTERITY. 



Christianity, in the spring of 1834. And during that year she made a public 
profession of religion, and became a member of the First Baptist Church, in 
Providence, R. I. : and her connection with that church has remained unbro- 
ken to the present time. 

Her husband has holden the office of steward of Brown University, since 
May, 1826, and that of register of the same institution, since September, 1828; 
the lormer for nearly twenty-four years, and the latter for more than twenty- 
one. He has also been a pious and exemplary member of the First Baptist 
Church in Providence, R. I., for nearly seventeen years, and clerk of the same 
church for about fourteen years. And he has been elected, from year to year, 
a member of the board of directors of the Globe Bank, in Providence, since 
May, 1834, about sixteen years. 

Their son, Albert Timothy Elliott, was educated at Brown L^niversity, and 
graduated with the class of 1839. Since he completed his collegiate course, he 
has been concerned in business as a member of a large commercial and man- 
ufacturing establishment, in Providence. R. I. 

Ebenezer B. Lamson, brother of Mrs. Elliott, was born in Sutton, Mass. 
He was a printer, and worked at his trade in Worcester, Boston, and Ando- 
ver, Mass., and at the time of his death, was concerned as editor and pub- 
lisher of the newspaper called the Concord Gazette, printed at Concord, Mass. 
Her sister, Caroline M., was born in Sutton, Mass., and married in Providence, 
R. I. Her husband was a master mariner, and died in 1836. She has liA'^ed 
in Providence continually since her marriage. Her other sister, Elizabeth M., 
was born in Oxford, Mass., and married in Providence, R. I. Her husband, 
at the time of her marriage, was concerned in a manufacturing establishment, 
in Gloucester, R. I. He soon after changed his place of business to Thompson, 
Conn., where she resided with her husband for several years. They at length 
removed to Providence, R. I., but he continued his manufacturing business in 
Tnompson, Conn., in connection with a mercantile establishment in Provi- 
dence, R. I. He was extensively concerned as a manufacturer and commission 
merchant* at the time of his death, in 1847. She is now, 1850, a widow, 
residing in Providence, R. I.

The twelve childron of II(Miry liPlaml, were horn in Sherhump, Mass. ; and 
they all remained in Slierlmrn<\ or llolliston. (a town taken from Sherburne in 
1721), through life, except Kosiah and Mcicy. Kesiah settled in Framing- 
hain, and after a few years residence, died there in \7'AC). Merry lived with 
her first husband in llolliston. He died about the year 1754, and on her sec- 
ond marriage, in 1703, she settled in Xeedham, IMass., and eojitinued to reside 
therewith her hushaiid until his death. She afterwards lived with her chil- 
dren, part of the time in Ncedhani, and i)art of the time in Dover, Mass., until 
her death in ISIO. 

The children of Jonathan T/cland, son of Henry, were all born in Sherburne, 
Mass., and they all, except Kesiah and Martha, continued to reside there as 
long as they livml. Kesiah soon after her marriage, left Sherburne for Wor- 
cester, Mass., where she afterwards continued to live with her husband. Mar- 
tha married in Sherburne, about the year 1760, and remained there with her 
husband till 1771, when they removed to IMarlborough, N. H., where she con- 
tinued to reside until her death in 1804. 

AniosWindship, son of Nathaniel Windship and Mercy Leland. was born in 
Holliston, Mass., on the tenth day of August, 1745. He was connected with 
Henry Leland, the common ancestor of the licland family in America, by a 
line of descent through Hopestill Leland and Henry Leland, of Sherburne, 
Mass., and Mercy Leland. who married Nathaniel Windship, of Holliston, 
Mass. He was educated at Harvard University, and graduated with the class 
of 1771, and was the first of the descendants of Henry Leland who received 
a collegiate education. He was a physician and surgeon. He received his 
medical education under the instruction of Dr. Ezekiel Hersey, a physician and 
surgeon of considerable eminence in Hingham, Mass. He commenced his 
professional course in Boston, Mass., and after continuing in practice there for a 
a few years, engaged as a naval surgeon on board the United States frigate 
Alliance, of the squadron under the command of Commodore John Paul Jones, 
and continued in the active serviceof his country in that capacity, until the close 
of the war in 17S3. When the relations of peace were established, he visited 
England, and while there became a member of the London Medical Society, 
and was appointed a corresponding fellow. After a short residence abroad, 
he returned to the United States. He received the degree of M. D., from Har- 
vard University, and resumed his practice in Boston. He continued in the 
discharge of his professional duties there for a series of years, and then removed 
to Wellfleet, Mass., where he died in ISll. He was highly esteemed in his 
professional and social relations. 

The three children of Mercy Leland by her second husband, were born in 
Needham, Mass. John Day, the oldest child, settled in Needham, and remained 
there through life. Mercy, the only daughter, from her marriage in 17S4, to 
hev death in 1841, lived with her husband, Jonathan Battellc, in Dover, Mass.; 
Ralph, the youngest child, married in Dedham, Mass., and died at Cambridge, 
Mass.

HENRY LELAND'S POSTERITY. 



The eight children of Beulah Leland, who married Isaac Bullard, were born 
in Holliston, Mass., and they all remained there as long as they lived, except 
Martha and Olive. Martha, on her marriage, settled in Hopkinton, (now 
Ashland), with her husband, and continued to reside there until her death, in 
1841. Olive, from her marriage about the year 1783, to her death in 1846, 
continued to live in Upton, Mass. 

Henry Leland, son of Henry and grandson of Hopestill, had eight children. 
They were all born in Sherburne, Mass. Two of them died in infancy, and 
five were married in Sherburne. 

Mary continued to live in Sherburne, until her death in 1812. Jeremiah 
remained in Sherburne until 1781, when he removed to Barre, Mass., where he 
continued to reside till 1799. He then went to Claremont, N. H., and dwelt 
there four years. In 1803 he left Claremont for Middlesex, Vt., where he con- 
tinued to live until his death in 1832. 

Kesiah, after the death of her husband, about the year 1808, left Sherburne, 
Mass., for Shrewsbury, Vt., where she remained till her death in 1810. She 
left no issue. 

Henry lived in Sherburne, Mass., till 1802. He then settled in Hubbardston, 
Mass., and remained there until 1816, when he removed to Sangerville, Me., 
where he continued to reside until his death in 1836. 

Jonas remained in Sherburne, Mass.. until about the year 1800, when he

Miriam was married in Sherburne, Mass., and remained there through life. 
Her husband, the J ion. Daniel \Vhitney, was a man of great inlluence and 
respectability. For years he was nnn h emj)Ioyed in the municipal concerns of 
the town. Me held many of the most important town ollices, and for many

The seven children of Rachel Leland, were horn in Medway, Mass. Hepsi- 
bah, from about the time of her marriage in 1776, until the time of her death 
in 1842, had her place of residence in Orange, Mass. Rhoda lived a few years 
after her marriage, in the vicinity of Medway, Mass. She then went with her 
husband and children into that part of the state of New York which was then 
called the Genesee country, and she continued to reside in that region until 
her death, in 1S35. As will appear by the foregoing tabular account, her 
children are settled in that part of the country. Mary, from her marriage to 
her death, lived in Franklin, Mass. Rachel, on her marriage settled in Frank- 
lin, and remained there until the death of her husband. She has, within a few 
years past, lived in Medway, Mass. Ruth, since her first marriage, has resided 
in Franklin. Aaron married, lived and died in Medway, Mass.

was not a sealed book. He was an estimable man, kind father and iiusband, 
and a good citizen. Augustus Leiand, eldest son of Lewis who has been for 
a few years past in California, was many years a merchant in South America. 

Lewis, his second son, settled in Apalachicola, Flor., and was in business 
there as a merciiant for some considerable time before his death. Francis, at an 
early period of his life, went to South America, and continued to reside there 
until about eight years ago. Since he left South America, he has lived in the 
city of New York. Most of the other descendants of Lewis have continued 
to dwell in New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.

her marriage she lived with her husband in Part ridge field, now Peru, Roxbury, 
and Amherst, Mass., until her death in 1838.

till her death in 1817, lived with her husband in Worthington, Mass. Her two 
daughters soon after they were married settled in the western country, one in 
Michigan, the other in Indiana, where they now reside. 

Joseph T. Leiand, the other son of Aaron, has never left the place of hisbirth. 

Aaron L. Leiand, son of Joseph T. Leiand, and grandson of Aaron Leiand, 
was educated at Harvard University, and received his graduating degree of 
A. B. in 1835. He is of the medical profession. He was in practice in Boston, 
Mass., a short time, about the year 1838. Since that time he has been in prac- 
tice in the state of Michigan, part of the time in Pontiac, and part of the time 
in the city of Detroit, where he now resides. 

Francis Leiand, brother of Aaron L. Avho has his descent from Henry 
Leiand, the common ancestor of the Leiand family, through Hopestill Leiand,

Perry Daniels, son of John Daniels and Miriam Perry, married his fourth 
cousin Mary Leland, daughter of Jeremiah Leland, of the posterity of Timothy 
Leland. 

John Miller, son of Obadiah Miller and Miriam Daniels, married his second 
cousin, Caroline Perry, daughter of Elijah Perry. 

Mrs. Sarah P. Sanford, was born in Hopkinton, Mass., October 22d, 1802. 
She is of the Leland family, and has her descent from Henry Leland, the 
common ancestor, through Hopestill Leland and Hopestill Leland, Jr., of Sher- 
burne, Mass.; Ruth Leland, who married Samuel Perry, of Natick, Mass.; 
Miriam Perry, who married John Daniels, of Holliston, Mass.; and Obed 
Daniels, of Hopkinton, Mass. Her parents both died before she was four years 
of ao-e. She at an early period of her life made a profession of Christianity, 
and for many years she has been a pious member of the Trinitarian Congrega- 
tional church. She was married the 22d day of July, 1828, and since her 
marriage she has resided with her husband in Dorchester and Medway, Mass. 
Her husband, Rev. David Sanford, is a graduate of Brown University, of 
the class of 182-5. He studied theology with the Rev. Dr. Ide, of Medway, 
Mass., and at the theological institution in xlndover, Mass. He labored a 
short time in his profession in Lowell, Mass., Somerworth and Newmarket, 
N. H. He was then, from 1830 to 1838, pastor of the Trinitarian Congrega- 
tional church and society in the southerly part of Dorchester, Mass., and since 
October third, 1838, he has been the settled minister of the Congregational 
church and society, at Factory Village, in Medway, Mass. He is a native of 
Medway, and is now living in the house occupied by his graiidfather, who was 
also a clergyman, and pastor of the Congregational church and society in the 
West Parish in Medway, for the period of thirty-seven years.

JOHN LELAND'S POSTEKITY. 



Dinah, second daughter of Samuel, from the time of her marriage to the time 
of her death, lived in Tyringham, Mass. 

Ebenezer Leland, son of John, was married in Holliston, Mass., in 1762, 
and continued to reside there for ahout ten years. He then removed to Peru, 
Mass., and continued to dv/ell in that place and the adjoining town of Hins- 
dale, as long as he lived. 

Deborah Leland, daughter of John, remained in Holliston until her death in 
1791. 

John Leland, son of John, and grandson of John, was a remarkable man, the 
events of whose life and ministry, if they could be recorded, would afford a 
very interesting and useful specimen of biography. All that can now be done 
is to give the following imperfect and meagre sketch. He was born in Hollis- 
ton, Mass., January liith, A. D. 1744. enjoyed only a plain English education, 
and commenced life as a farmer and a schoolmaster. At an early age he married 
Hephzibah Leland, daughter of Daniel Leland, and granddaughter of Hopestill 
Leland, who was brother of his own grandfather, and to his providential union 
with this noble woman he was doubtless principally indebted for his success, 
character, and usefulness. For the defects which belonged tohis constitutional 
temperament, were well supplied by the uncommon wisdom and energy of his 
most excellent wife. At the commencement of the Revolution, John was found 
among the defenders of his country, and at the battle of Banker Hill, he held a 
captain's commission, and led his company into the bloody conflict. Soon after, 
however, he became entirely convinced that he was ill suited to military life, 
resigned his commission, and returned to his farm. Within a year, or two, he 
became deeply impressed with a conviction that it was his duty to seek admis- 
sion to the gospel ministry, which after some difficulties and delays, arising from 
his want of a classical education, he obtained. He then settled in the ministry 
in a large township on the mountains of Berkshire, then bearing the name of 
Partridgefield, but is now divided into the towns of Peru and Hinsdale. At that 
time there were perhaps 150 families, but most of them new settlers, and in low 
circumstances. A church consisting of a few members had been organized, and 
Mr. L. was their first pastor. In this unpromising field he commenced his min- 
istry, and soon became one of the most successful popular preachers in that 
region. For about forty years he labored there with a remarkable degree of 
usefulness and efficiency. The church soon became one of the largest, 
most united, and flourishing in the vicinity. Successive seasons of revival at 
once increased and strengthened the church, and blessed the entire community. 
In his preaching, Mr. L. was sim.ple and unpretending, but faithful, pungent 
and affectionate. His sermons had little of the learning of the schools, but 
were replete with strong sense, powerful appeals to the heart, and much of the 
pathos of native genius. Such was his remarkable influence in the conmiu- 
nity that for many years the whole population of the town Averc of one heart 
under his ministry; not only in the pulpit, but in his ordinary intercourse, he 



JOHN rKLAXIVS roSTIClMTY. 



001 



exerted a most blessed iiilluciifo. Pre-cmiiuiitly lif was a poaco-makor. Aiul 
so excellent was his sj)irit, so wdiuirahlc his tact in concilialint; the aiifrry feel- 
ings of men, and so wise and jndicions his ojjinions. that hardly once in ten 
years, did any dispute arise amonc: his peoplo, which was not instantly and 
amicably settled by Iiis iVicndly arbiti.ition. Details, which wonid fill a vol- 
nme, mnst be compressed into the Iniel' statement, that as the gnide of innnor- 
tal sonls, as th(^ vigilant watcbuian and concientions rnli-r over the clnircb of 
(Jod, — as an exam|)le ot' kindness and fidelity, — as a most usefnl member of 
civil society, and as the chuscn iiisirinncnt of conveying the richest Ijlessings 
npon tlie people of his charge^ Ins piaise was in all the chnrches. Few, who 
kn(Mv bini well wonld hesitate to apply to John Leland, the inspired cnloginm : 
'• lie was a good man, and full of the Holy (ihost, and of laith, and much 
]i(^o]il(^ were added to the Lord." 'I'luis tor nearly forty years, this devoted 
man labored in the same held, and all the snj)port lie ever received Avas 
an annual .salary ot two Inmdred dollars, and this not pnnctually, nor 
fidly iKiid, especially in the earlier years of his pastorate. And yet, he 
lived comfortably and respectably, and exercised a hospitality which gave 
his house the title of the '-minister's tavern." He owed no man anything. 
He trained up seven children respectably, giving them such an education 
as enabled most of tlieni to commence life as teachers. To his youngest 
son he gave a liberal education. And bow was all this done on such a 
salary. True, be bad a small farm, but be bad neither taste nor skill 
for its management. I le was wholly given to bis ministerial work. How 
then, it may well be asked, did he manage to get along comfortably with 
such slender resources ? The reply is easily given, and it is worthy of being 
inscribed on tablets of marble. The secret of all this comfort and use- 
fulness, the bidden spring whence flowed all these streams of blessing, was 
the simple fact that John Leland had a good wife, pre-eminently good — 
a model for all ministers' wives — she excelled in piety, good sense and 
energy. Not only as a mother in Israel, ready and prompt for every good 
word and work, but wise and prudent in increasing and imsbanding their 
slender resources. In a word, she was all in all to the comfort and support, 
and moral training of her family, and to the usefulness and encouragement 
.of her husband. Her children and grandchddren may well rise up and 
call her blessed. Many daughters have done nobly and virtuously, but thou, 
Hephzibah Leland, excellest them all. In 1805 this holy woman entered into 
her rest, and ever after, her bereaved husband was a living witness liow essen- 
tial slic had been to him in every department of life. He labored years after 
in tlie ministry, acceptably and usefully; but his eflbrts were always like the 
attempts of an eagle to fly which has lost one of its wings. At iengih. he 
resolved to resign his charge, and unhappily did so; by which at least ten years 
of his last and best years were lost to the chinch. I'inally. al the age of eighty 
3'ears, he closed in })eacc a life of uncommon vicissitudes and usefulness, at 
the house of his elder son, lion. John Leland, of Amherst, Mass.

JOHN LELAND'S POSTERITY. 



Caleb Leland, son of John, from an early period in his manhood until his 
death, resided in Leominster, Mass. For many years he was actively and ex- 
tensively concerned in business as a merchant, innholder, paper manufacturer, 
and mill owner. But before his death he met with reverses in business, and 
became poor. 

Lydia Leland, second daughter of John, married her second cousin, Asa 
Perry, of the posterity of Hopestill Leland, and settled in Fitchburg, Mass., 
and continued to reside there until her death. 

Martha Leland. third daughter of John, married her third cousin, Henry 
Leland, of the posterity of Timothy Leland, and remained in Holliston, until 
her death in ISOO.

The eight children of Asa Lolaiul were born in Ilolli.stoii, Mass. 

liinit. Gov. Aaron Leland, who had his descent from Henry Leland, the 
l^iliirini father of the Leland family in America, throngli Ilopestill Leland, 
of JSherbnrne, .Tohn Leland and >:^ainnel Leland of llolliston, Mass., and Asa 
Leland, who died in Chester, Vt., was born in HoUiston, Mass., May 2Sth, 
17G1, he possessed no greater advantages of cdncation than were afforded by 
the common schools in Massachusetts before the Revolution; but a naturally 
vigorous mind, devotedly applied to the means of self-culture within his reach, 
compensated, in a measure, for a regular course of theological studies, now 
considered so indispensable to a minister of the gospel. He became a member 
of the IJaptist church in 1785, and took the pastoral charge of the Bapti.st 
church, in Chester, Vt., in 1787. His heart M'as in the cause he espoused, 
and it was the chief object of hi.s long lilc t<i administer the consolations of the 
Christian religion to all who came within his influence. At the time of his set- 
tlement ill Chester, the country was new, the church ncwlj^ organized, and Mr. 
Leland was its first pastor; very few of the members were in better worldly 
circumstances than their preacher, and a salary was not easily raised, but liis 
fellow citizens made him town cleric, and for many years elected him to rep- 
resent them in the legislative assembly, as some pecuniary reward for his 
labors in the pulpit. Mr. Leland early became a leading member in the state 
legislature, and in 1S(J4, was made speaker of that body, and was chosen 
to that place during four successive sessions. He was appointed, and continued 
to be for many years, judge of the county court of Windsor county. In 1S22 he 



39 



226 JOHN LELAND'S POSTERITY. 

was elected lieut. governor, which honor his fellow citizens conferred upon him 
during six terms of office. Up to this time his civil offices had not interrupted 
his services in the pulpit, and his duties as a minister of Jesus Christ; but 
when, in 1828, he was proposed as a candidate for governor, he found that the 
long relationship with his pastoral charge must cease, or that he must relin- 
quish civil service, he yielded to the impulses of his heart, and, as he believed, 
to the paramount requirements of his master, whose minister he was, and 
caused his name to be withdrawn from the canvass. Mr. Leland possessed, in 
an eminent degree, the qualities that constitute a successful extemporaneous 
speaker, a powerful cast of mind, quick perceptive and large comparing fac- 
ulties; and during a period of forty-six years' ministerial labors, never, it is 
believed, made use of written discourses. He was an agreeable companion, 
a liberal christian, and an honest man. He was one of the fellows of Middle- 
bury College, Vermont, from 1800 to 1832. And that institution conferred 
upon him the honorary degree of Master of Arts in 1814. And he received a 
similar degree from Brown University, Providence, R. I., in 1815. He died, 
August 25th, 1832. and left no issue. 

Abigail, from the time of her marriage, in 1791, to the time of her death in 
1843, lived in Wrentham, Mass. 

Miriam was married in Holliston, Mass., in 1791, and remained there until 
1800, when she, with her husband and three young children, removed to Ches- 
ter, Vt., where she resided until a few years before her death, which occurred 
at Londonderry, Vt., in August, 1846. Many years previous to her death she 
became a professor of religion, in connection with the Baptist denomination. 
During her life, she was enabled to adorn the doctrine of her God and Saviour, 
and in her death, as in her life, she enjoyed the consolations and the hope of 
the gospel. Her husband. Dr. Nathan V^hiting, still survives, (1850), aged 
eighty-five years, and resides in Londonderry, Vt. Four of her children were 
born in Holliston, Mass., and three in Chester, Vt. Her son, Nathan N., passed 
his youth and early manhood in Chester, Vt. He is a clergyman of the Baptist 
denomination, and also a professor of languages. He is a graduate of Union 
College, of the class of 1815, and he has for several years been settled in W^il- 
liamsburg, Long Island, N. Y. 

Her daughter, Miriam, has continued to reside in Chester, Vt., from 1800 to 
the present time (1850). She was married in the year 1826. Her husband, 
Abram Lowell is of the medical profession, and in good practice as a physician 
and surgeon, in Chester, Vt. In 1825, he received from Middlebury College, 
Vt., the degree of M. D. 

Rev. Marshall Whiting is connected with Heny Leland the Puritan father 
of the Leland family in America, by a line of descent, through Hopestill Le- 
land, of Sherburne, Mass. ; John Leland and Samuel Leland, of Holliston, Mass. ;

institution, until the close of his second collegiate year, when, at the snggestino 
of an elder brother, now the Rev. Nathan N. Whiting, who had recently 
finished his collegiate conrse at Union College, Schenectady, with a view of en- 
tering the last named institution, he asked and receiv^^d, from professor Kbene- 
zer Adams, of Dartmeuth College, an honorable dismission, in the autumn of 
the same year, 1819, he entered the junior class of Union College in Avhich 
institution, with a large class, he graduated in 1821. At a subscqnent period, 
the degree of A. M. Avas conferred upon him. Shortly after leaving college 
Mr. W. went to Long Island, where he commenced, as a stated emj)loyment, 
the business of teaching, which, with the exception of the last year of his 
collegiate conrse, he had regularly followed, for a few months every year, 
since the close of 181.3. IJy teaching he had obtained means to delVay the 
chief part of the expense of his education. On arriving on Long Island in 
1821, he took charge of a public school in the village of iS'ew Lots and town of 
Flatbush, Kings connty, which he taught lor nearly two years, and then in 
1823, opened a select English and classical school for boys, in Newtown, 
Queens county, L. I., and subsequently changed it to a boarding school lor 
boys. In the antumn of 182.5 he left Newtown, and in connection witii another 
teacher, opened a Seminary for boys in Brooklyn, Kings county, with a classi- 
cal and English department, him-^elf taking charge of the former and his partner 
of the latter. In this seminary a number of students were fitted for college, and 
afterwards graduated at diU'erent literary instituiions. IMr. \\ . not having origi- 
nally intended teaching as a profession for life, in the latter part of the 3-ear 
1830, entered his name in an ollice in the city of New York, as a student at 
law, intending, as soon as convenient, to relinquish teaching, and to devote his 



228 JOHN LELAND'S POSTERITY. 

Avhole time to the study he had commenced. He, however, contmued his labors 
in the seminary as usual, and appropriated only his leisure time to the study of 
law. While pursuing this course, he was taught by an event, to him the most 
important and interesting of any in the progress of life, " that the way of man is 
not in himself, that it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Eeference 
is here made to his conversion, or to the change in his spiritual state and char- 
acter. God, by his providence and grace, had for some time previous to this 
event, been teaching Mr. W. his need of a more enduring and satisfying portion 
for the soul, than this world can furnish, and in the month of February, 
1831, had led him to form the solemn and unalterable purpose of seeking, 
and if possible, of securing that better portion which the gospel reveals. 
He had caused him to feel willing to make any sacrifice, which the gospel 
demands, in order to seek and secure an interest in the "great salvation." 
Acting under the impulse of this feeling, while attending on the ministry of 
the Rev. Mr. Mcllvaine.now the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Ohio, Mr. W. 
as a helpless and perishing sinner, devoted himself, soul and body, for time and 
eternity, to the Lord Jesus Christ, at the same time invoking the Holy Spirit 
to seal or confirm the act unto the day of judgment. As a necessary result of 
thus coming to Christ, who hath said, " him thatcometh to me I will in no wise 
cast out," he was enabled to lay hold of the promise and hope of eternal life. 
The hope then embraced he has hitherto found "as an anchor of the soul 
both sure and steadfast." Shortly after the event referred to above, Mr. 
Whiting left the Academy at Brooklyn and directed his attention, unremit- 
tingly to the law. After having pursued this study for a time, he felt con- 
strained to relinquish it and to enter upon the study of divinity, in order 
to qualify himself for preaching the gospel. Accordingly, in the autumn 
of 1831, he entered the general theological seminary of the Protestant Epis- 
copal church, in the United States, located in the city of New York, and 
commenced with the class then entering, the prescribed course of studies. 
In September, 1832, during the annual vacation in the theological seminary, 
Mr. Whiting was united in marriage to Elizabeth Richardson, eldest daughter 
of Mr. Grant Thorburn, of the city of New York. In June, 1834, having 
completed the prescribed course of studies in the general theological semi- 
nary, he with the other members of the class received the usual testimo- 
nial. In the same month, in the city of New York, with a number of other 
candidates, he was ordained a deacon by the Right Rev. Benjamin T. Onder- 
donk, D. D., bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church, in the State of New 
York. After his ordination, Mr. Whiting took the pastoral charge for a few 
weeks, during the absence of the rector, the late Dr. Milnor, of St. George's 
Church, N.Y.,and then officiated for a short time in St. Luke's church, N. Y., 
which was at that time without a settled pastor. In November of the same year, 
he removed, with his family, to Jamosville, Onondago county, N. Y., where.

sionally, either in St. (ieorgc's church, Astoria, or in the neighboring churches, 
where his services were required, until July 1S46. At that time, in consequence 
of the removal of the rector of Zion church, Little Neck, to another field of 
labor, Mr. \V. was called to the charge of that church, and to that of a small 
adjoining parish, where in addition to his duties in teaching in the institute at 
Astoria, he continued to oihciate for nearly two years, when, on the return of 
the former rector, in IS IS, he resigned the charge of Zion church. He continued, 
however, to oihciate in the adjoming parish, above referred to, until late in 
the autumn, when he resigned that also. Since that time until the present, 
May, ISoO, Mr. W. has olTiciated only occasionally, and for the most part, in St. 
George's church, Astoria, where he still resides.

became a member of the Baptist church, and under her repeated bereavements, 
she has been unwavering in her faith in Christ. 

Achsa M. Leland, also a daughter of Asa, received her .education at the 
academy in Chester, Vt. She was employed in teaching school in Chester 
from 1823 to 1827. From 1827 to 1842 she lived in Lodi and Irving, N. Y.

iQV'T months at the academy in Springville, N. Y. From about the year 1 827 
to 1834, he was engaged as a student at law and in teaching school, to 
obtain funds to defray the expense of his education, and to support 
some helpless members of his father's family. In 1832 he made a public pro- 
fession of religion, and became a member of the Baptist church. He was 
admitted as an attorney and counsellor at law in 1835. Settled in Irving,

fession. He has held the office of post master for eight years, in that place, 
and in 1846, he was appointed by Gov. Wright, attorney for the Seneca Nation 
of Indians. He is active and influential in all his social relations, both as a 
man and a christian. In 1834 he was married to Orphca Powers, his fifth cou- 
sin, who is connected with Henry Leland, the common ancestor, by a line of 
descent through Ebenezer Leland, of Sherburne, Mass., James Leland. of Graf- 
ton, Thankful Leland, who married Lemuel Powers, of Northbridge, Mass., 
Lemuel Powers, of Stillwater, N. Y., and Cyrus Powers, of Kelloggyille, N. Y.

The eight children of Ahiier Leland were horn in Holliston, .Mas.s. 

His son, Elijah, was married in Hoston, Mass., soon after he was twenty-one 
years of age, and in a short time after his marriage, settled in Chester, Vt., 
where he continned to reside for five or six years. He then removed to Bloorn- 
lield, now Mendon, in the western part of the state of New York, and remained 
there until his death in 1S28. Two of his children were born in Cliester, 
and eleven in Bloomlield and Mendon. 

Amos Leland son of Elijah, has lived a considerable number of years in 
Norwich, Chenango county. New York. 

His daughter. Hannah, was married in Mendon, N. Y,, Sept. 15th, 1S24. 
She afterwards hved with her husband, in Mendon. Rochester and Bethany, 
N. Y.; Oil Creek in the comity of Crawford, Penn. : New Albany, Indiana and 
Sunbnry, Delaware county, Ohio. Her husband, Rev. William Gildersleeve, was 
a clergyman of the Baptist denomination, and also a physician. He was a 
graduate of "Williams College, Williamstown, Mass., and received a degree of 
M. D., from Yale College, New Haven, Conn. He was in practice as a physi- 
cian for about four years in the western part of the state of New York. About 
the year 1828, he commenced preaching under a license from the Baptist churcli 
in Rochester, N. Y., and was soon after ordained in Bethany, New York, as 
a minister of the gospel of that denomination. And he continued to labor in the 
ministry from that time until his death in 1845. The other children of Elijah 
are settled in different places in western New York, Ohio, Michigan and Wis- 
consin, as appears by the foregoing tabular account. 

Amasa Leland, second son of Abner, remained with his father in Holliston, 
Mass., until he was over thirty years of age. He afterwards lived in South- 
borough, jMass., a few years, and then settled in Milford, Mass., where he con- 
tinued to reside until his death in 1838. He was a successful farmer. His 
three surviving children, Charles, Abner A., and Harriet T., have always lived 
in Milford. 

Jotham Leland, third son of Abner, was married in Holliston, Mass.. in 1805, 
and remained there for several years. He then lived in Hopkinton, Mass., 
until 1819. He then returned to Holliston, and continued to reside tliere until 
1846, and since that time he has had his place of residence in Ashland, Mass. 
He is an industrious farmer. 

Luther Leland, fourth son of Abner, was a clergyman. He fitted for college, 
with the Rev. Timothy Dickinson, of Holliston. Mnss., was educated at Middle- 



•^36 JOHN LELAND'S POSTERITY. 

bury college, Yt., and graduated with the class of 1807. He studied divinity, 
and was the settled minister of the Congregational church and society in Der- 
by, Vt., for the last twelve or thirteen years of his life. He died in 1822. 

Eliab Leland, fift!i son of Abner, was married in Holliston, Mass., in 1808, 
and since his marriage he has lived in Southborough, Hopkinton and Upton, 
Mass. He is a farmer, and now (1850) resides in Upton. 

Deacon Samuel Leland was born in Holliston, Mass., May 21, 1784. He 
is descended from Henry Leland, the common ancestor of the Leland family 
in America, through Hopestill Leland of Sherburne, Mass., John Leland, Sam- 
uel Leland, and Abner Leland, of Holliston, Mass. He passed his infancy, 
youth and early manhood with his parents in Holliston. His father was a 
farmer, and he was brought up to labor upon the farm, except a few months in 
the winter season, Avhen he was allowed to attend the common district school. 
He, however, for a few years during the latter part of his minority, taught a 
school in the winter season. He was married in 1806, at the age of twenty-two. 
After he left Holliston in 1811, he lived in Leverett, Mass., 16 years, in Montague 
Mass., 8 years, in Sunderland, Mass., 1 year, again in Holliston 10 years, and 
in Ashland, Mass., where he nov/ (1850) resides, five years. He is a man of 
great moral purity and christian piety. He has ever been an ardent defender 
of the Christian religion, and his means, as far as prudence would permit, have 
been freely given for its support. He was early impressed with religious feel- 
ings, and as he humbly hopes, experienced religion at the age of twenty-one 
years, but did not connect himself with any church until 1813. He then 
became a member of the Leverett and Montague Baptist church. In 1821 he 
was chosen deacon of this church, and was set apart to the office a few years 
after by ordination. He continued in the office of deacon of that church until 
he removed to Holliston. He then united with the Baptist church in Medway, 
Mass., and in 1840, was chosen a deacon of this church, and continued to serve 
in this capacity until he left Holliston. for Ashland, in 1845. He immediately 
became a member of the Baptist church in Ashland, and was soon after chosen 
deacon, Avhich office he now holds. He has ever been a firm and zealous 
advocate of all religious, moral, benevolent and philanthropic objects. He was 
early engaged in the temperance reform and has ever continued to labor in its be- 
half He has been a member of the board of assessors or selectmen in every town 
in which he has resided long enough to be eligible, except Ashland, showing 
the great confidence his fellow citizens have reposed in his honesty and ability. 
In the early part of his life he held the offices of ensign and lieutenant in the 
militia, and was offered that of captain, which he declined. And now, he 
having nearly served his own generation, feels himself a sinnner in the sight 
of God, and trusts entirely in tlie atoning blood of Christ for pardon and sal- 
vation, and his constant desire and prayer is that, he, himself, and all of his, may 
be prepared for that rest that remaineth for the children of God. His surviving 
children are all living in AshJand and the neighboring town of Holliston. His

LyJia LeUuul. llcpli/ihali lielaiul, Levi I.olund, John Lclaiid, Anna licland, 
and Polly Lcland, cliildivn of Jiov. John Leland, were born in Ihjlliston, Mass., 
and Icl't Holliston with their parents for Partridgclield, now Pern, Mass., about E 
tlie year 178.5, and they all passed the early period of theirhves in the latter place. 

J yydia married in Peru, and continued to live tlicrc Aviih lier hnshand until . 
her death, in 1828. d-.ci T^^^ (go -h S.^. -s, M^.;^ 

Hephzibah married in Peru, and settled iti Hinsdale, Mass. 

John, for his first wife, married his cousin Lydia Leland, daughter of Aaron 
Leland, of Sherburne, Mass. He resided in Peru until 1S20, when he removed 
to Amherst, Mass., and continued to live there until 1835. In that year he 
settled in Iloxbury, Mass., and remained there for a few years. He then 
returned to Amberst, Mass., where he has ever since dwelt. He early made a 
profession of religion, and for many years he has holden the office of deacon 
in the Trinitarian Congregational church. He held the oflice of treasurer of 
Amherst College from its establishment in 1821, till he left Amherst for Rox- 
bury, in 1835. He was a senator from the county of Hampshire in the legis- 
lature of Massachusetts for the years 1833 and 1834, and a representative from 
the town of Amherst, Mass., for the year 1847. His son John H. M. Leland, 
was educated at Amherst College and received his degree of A. B. in 1840. 
He is a clergyman of the Trinitarian Congregational denomination. He 
married his cousin, Eliza T. Leland, daughter of his mother's brother, Joseph 
P. Leland, of Sherburne, Mass. 

Anna, twin sister of John, was married in 180U to Eliashib Adams, then of 
Worthington, Mass. After her marriage, sbe resided with her husband in 
Worthington, Mass., in Bucksport, Me., and in Bangor, Me., till her death in the 
latter place, April 18th, 18 16. She was a woman of fine personal appearance, 
strong sound sense, and decided piety. She suffered greatly from ill health 
the latter years of her life. Her husband descended from Henry AdauLS, who 
came from England and settled in Braintree, Mass., in 1030. through Edward 
of Medfield, Mass., Eliashib of Bristol, R. L, Eliashib of Preston, Conn., and 
Eliashib of Canterbury, Conn. He is still living in Bangor, Me. 

Her son, George Eliashib Adams, born in Worthington, Mass., October 27th, 
1801, is an eminent clergyman. He received his classical education at Yale 
college, New Haven, Coim., his professional, at the theological seminary in 
Andover, Mass., graduated at the former mstitution ni 1821, at the latter in 



244 JOHN LELAXD'S POSTERITY. , 

1S20. From 1S26 to 1829, he was a professor in the Bangor Theological Semi- 
nary, and since 1S29 he has been pastor of the Congregational church connected 
whh Bowdoin College in Brnnswick, Me. The government of that college in 
1549, conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Divinity. In IS26 he was mar- 
ried to Sarah Ann Folsom. a lady of fine accomplishments and true christian 
piety. She was granddaughter of Gen. Nathaniel Folsom, a member of the 
first congress from the state of New Hampshire. She died Feb. 27th, 18.50. 
George E. has no children. Her daughter, Eliza L. Adams, was married in 
1S31. to James Crosb}^, a merchant of Bangor, Me., where she has ever since 
resided. John Leland Crosby, son of James Crosby and Eliza L. Adams, is 
now (18.50) a student in Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Me. 

Her second son. John C. Adams, is of the clerical profession. He received 
his classical education at Amherst College, Amherst, Mass., and graduated with 
the class of IS.3.3. He studied theology mostly at New Haven, Conn., and he 
is now (1S50) preaching to a Congregational church and society in East 
Ma.chias. Maine. 

Her third son, Aaron C. Adams, is a clergyman of the Congregational denom- 
ination. He graduated at Bowdoin College, with the class of 1836, studied 
theology at Bangor, Me., and at the Lane Semina.ry, Cincinnati, Ohio. He was 
several years in the ministr5r in Maine, and he is nov/ pastor of a Congrega- 
tional church in West Bloomfield, N. J. He was married in 1839. 

Her youngest son, Henry M. Adams, died May 25th, 1846, at the age of 24. 
He was a remarkable young man. He chose a seafaring life, hoping that his 
health, which had ever been poor, would thereby be improved. He proved '■• 
a very skilful seaman, and while quite young took charge of a vessel. He i 
early rmited with a Christian church. Affectionate in dispositioD, full of charity, ] 
ever correct in all his conduct, patient and gentle under protracted sufferings, | 
he was universally loved, and the memory both of his life and his death is ' 
exceedingly precious to his numerous friends. 

Polly Leland, fourth daughter of Rev. John Leland, was married in Peru, 
Mass., in 1805. and she has ever since continued to live there. 

Rev. Aaron Whitney Leland, of Columbia, S. C, is a clergyman of superior 
talents, high literary attainments, commanding eloquence, fervent piety, and 
deep biblical and theological learning. He is connected with Henry Leland, 
the original Pilgrim patriarch of the Leland family in America, by a three-fold 
line of descent; through Ebenezer Leland, Ebenezer Leland, Jr., of Sherburne, 
Mass., Lydia Leland, his grandmother, and John Leland, his father, through 
Hopestill Leland of Sherburne.. John Leland and John Leland, Jr., of Holliston, 
Mass.. and John Leland, his father ; and through Hopestih Leland, Hopestill 
Leland. Jr., and Daniel Leland of Sherburne, Mass., and Hephzibah Leland, his 
mother. He was born October, 1, 1787, at Partridge field, Berkshire county, 
Mass. His parents, John and Hephzibah Leland, were second cousins. In 
1808 he was graduated at Wilhams College in his native state, and within a

month afterwards, hiiidcd in (Charleston. S. ('. lii Iniir wi. k.-, jificr reaching 
Charleston, he was eleeled classical teacher in the .Mount IMeasant Academy, 
within sight of the city, a very advantageous situation, allordin;^ not only 
useful and protitahle employment, hut leisure and facilities for pursuitjg the 
study of his future profession. hi Jiuic of the succeeding year (IbD'.l) he 
was married lo ilie eldest daui^hter of the lion. j;imcs Ilihhen, a lady who 
still survives to hless her hushand and family, as one of the best of wives and 
iiHillurs. Ill ihc year ISIl. ihc sidjji'ct of this brief int'in(jir was licensed to 
preach the gospel by tiie Presbytery of Harmony, at their sessions in Charles- 
ton; and in the year (ollowing he wasordaincd by the same ecclesiastical body, 
t(^ the work of the Christian ministry. In I'^l!?, he was elected and instnlled 
pastor of the First Presbyterian church of the city of CMiarlcston. In IsM, 
Brown University, Providence, 11. I., conferred upon him the honoray degree 
of Master of Arts, and in 1815, he received the degree of Doctor of Divinity, 
Ironi the South Carolina College. After his permanent settlement in the min- 
istry, he continued in the regular disciiarge of its laborious duties nearly 
twenty years, part of the time as pastor of the church above mentioned, 
and subsei^uently of the Presbyterian church, of St. Andrews parish. In 
1833, he received from the united synods of South Carolina and G'eorgia, 
the appointment of Professor of Christian Theology in the Southern Theo- 
logical Seminary, located in Columbia, S. C, and in the following year, 
was inaugurated into that oifice, luvev since, he has been exclusively 
devoted to the labors of that important professorship, in an institution s<» 
vitally important to the churches and the ministry of the south, that already 
a majority of the pastors of the Presbyterian churches in several states consists 
of those who have enjoyed its advantages. In his family, A. AV. L. has been 
liighly favored. He has five sons, of liberal education and of respectable 
standing. Of four daughters, lie was called, in 1845, to mourn the death of the 
second, the wife of tlie Rev. A. A. Porter, pastor of the Glebe street church, in 
Charleston. The eldest daughter is the wife of the Rev. Edwin Cater, princi- 
pal of the Young Ladies Institute, at Bradford Springs, S. C. The two 
younger daughters have not reached maturity. There is something remarkable 
in the uniform and vigorous health enjoyed by Dr. L., with scarcely an inter- 
ruption, for forty years. When he first migrated to the south, it was predicted, 
and with every probability of correctness, that his sanguine and plethoric habit 
would ensure an early death. And yet, by the mysterious arrangement of 
Providence, he has not only outlived more than a whole generation, but has 
enjoyed a degree of uniform vigorous licalth, which is very rare, even in Xew 
England. So remarkable, indeed, has been his degree of health, that in tbrty 
years, he has not been prevented by siclcness from attending the services of the 
sanctuary, more than seven or eight Sabbaths. It may be useful to add, that 
such a continuance of good health in so sickly a climate, whde it should be 
ascribed to the good pleasure of Him to whom all things are po.>sible, — the Sov-

JOHN LELAND'S POSTERITY. 



ereign Disposer of life and death, — ^niay also be traced, instrumentally, to the 
practice of rigid temperance. On landing in Carolina, forty years ago, A. W. L. 
entered into a solemn covenant with himself, to drink nothing but water, and 
that covenant has been kept inviolate. He, therefore, practised Mai abstinence 
nearly a score of years before the name was invented, and practically adopted 
the principles of the temperance reform, long before the trumpet-tongued alarm 
of Beecher had disturbed the deathful slumbers of the world. However the 
fact may be, as to the efficacy of this peculiar habit in preserving the health and 
life of the subject of this memoir, it is his own settled conviction, that if he 
had continued to be v/hat is called a moderate dr'vnker of intoxicating liquors, 
he would have been in his grave thirty years ago. At the present time, (1850), 
Dr. Leland enjoys good health, with all his powers unimpaired, and is as well 
able to discharge the duties of his sacred office, as at any former period of life.

but in the year 1804, removed from Holliston, to Warwick, Mass., where he 
remained until his death in 1847. He was connected with Henry Leland,

Leland, his mother; and through Kbenezor Lnland, Ilbenezer Lclaufl, Jr., 
Lydia Leland, hi.s grandniothrr, and Martlia Leland, hi.s mother. -Alariha 
Leland, his oldest child, was born in llolliston, and his other ehiidren, Jasper, 
Ahna, Harriet and Abigail K., were born in Warwick; Martha was married in 
1827, and since that time she has lived with her husband, in Warwick, Canton 
and Norton, Mass., and Woonsocket, K. I., where she now (lS.j()) resides. 
Her husband, Amory (iale, Jr., is a i)hysician and clergyman, in thr early 
part of his life he was in practice as a physician ; but for .several years previous 
to 1S49, he was engaged in the ministry, as a Congregational clergyman, and 
since the beginning of the )'ear 1S11>, he has been again m modiral ])rrictice, in 
Woonsocket, 11. I. 

His other children have all continued to reside in Warwick. 'I'licy are 
respectable agricultural people, and Jacob R. Gale, husband of Alma, was a 
representative from the town of Warwick, in the Massachusetts legislature, 
for the years 1837, 1S3S, and 1839. An account of this branch of the family 
appears in the third chapter, page 28, under the head of the descendants of 
Henry Leland. But, in consequence of some errors in it, as there published, 
its publication is here repeated.

cation. But as he then had no desire to engage in any of the learned pro- 
fessions, he did not so second the wishes of his father as to induce him to send 
his son to school preparatory to college. After the decease of his father in 
1330, the subject of this notice experienced a change in his religious views and . 
feelings, and desired to enter the Christian ministry. His wishes were warmly 
seconded by most of his friends, and especially by his elder sister, and he 
decided to obtain an education for this purpose. About the commencement of 
the year 1831, he entered upon a course of preparatory study at Wrentham 
Academy, and entered Amherst College in 1832, and graduated in 1836. He  
soon repaired to the Andover Theological Seminary, and graduated at that 
institution in 1839. In April, of the same year, he commenced preaching to the 
South Church, in North Bridgwater, Mass. At the expiration of his engage- 
ment there, he was engaged to preach in Hanson, Plymouth county, M§. He 
arrived in that place on the 16th of Nov., the anniversary of his birth. In the 
course of some weeks he received a call to settle over the Congregational church 
and society, in that place, and was ordained pastor, March Uth, 1840, He 
was married on the 9th of the same month, to Miss Christina Gilbert, of 
Taunton, Mass, He remains in Hanson at the present time, with a united 
and affectionate people.

Three children of Simeon Leland, Lynda, Holhs, and Bellarmine, were born 
in Sherburne, Mass. ; and four, Simon, Amasa, Elbridge, and Rhoda, in Gard- 
ner, Mass. HolKs died in Sherburne, and Lynda and Bellarmine went from

continued to live in Gardner ever since, Bellarmine was married in 1809, and 
soon after settled in the city of New York, and remained there until his death

The house occupied by Jedediah P. Leland, and which was also owned and 
occupied by his father, Joshua Leland, stands upon land Avhich belonged to 
Henry Leland, our primitive ancestor, and near the place where he first dwelt 
in Sherburne, Mass., and where he died. And an apple-tree is now (1850) 
standing near by, which, according to a tradition, universally credited, among 
his descendants in Sherburne, was produced from a seed brought from Eng- 
land, by his wife Margaret, and planted on his first settlement in Sherburne, 
near his dwelling house. And there is an ancient burying ground, a short dis- 
tance from the house of Jedediah, in which Henry and his three sons, Hopestiil, 
Ebenezer and Eleazer, were buried, and where their ashes, mingled with the 
dust, now repose. Henry Leland, between the time of his arrival in this coun- 
try in 1653, and his death in 1680, acquired four or five hundred acres of land 
in Sherburne, which by his will, he distributed among his three sons; the parts 
which he gave to his sons Hopestiil and Ebenezer, have ever since been owned 
and occupied by his descendants ; but on the death of Eleazer his share passed 
out of the family. Eleazer died without issue and by will, gave all his estate 
to his wife Sarah. 



The number of the descendants of Henry Leland, contained in this volume, 
is 9624. And there are, in 1850, among the living and the dead, ten generations 
of the Leland family in America. Three of them, embracing Henry Leland, 
his children and grandchildren, are recorded in the first chapter of this 
volume; two, embracing the children and grandchildren of the twelve grand- 
sons of Henry, in the first division of the other twelve chapters; five, 
embracing the descendants of the grandchildren of the twelve grandsons of 
Henry, in the second division of the last twelve chapters. The persons 
whose names are at the head of the tables in this last division of the twelve 
chapters, are in all cases, in the fifth generation, and their descendants, in the 
column of parents, marked with one figure, are in the sixth generation; 
those marked with two figures, in the seventh; those with three, in the 
eighth ; and those with four, in the ninth ; and those persons in the column 
of children, opposite to the parents marked with four figures, are in the tenth 
generation.
