CHAPTER V. 

THE LINZEE FAMILY OF 
GREAT BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES 

OF AMERICA. 



SECTION I. 
THE LINZEE NAME. 

The following ways of spelling the name Linzee, Linsee, Linzie, 
Linsie, and the use of " y " instead of the "i", as Lynzee, Lynzye, 
etc., are recognized and accepted, by the descendants of Thomas 
Linzee of Portsea, as the correct modes of writing their name, but 
they have a decided preference for the form Linzee which was carved 
on his tombstone now resting in the church-yard of St. Mary's, the 
Parish Church at Kingston, Portsea, county Hants, England. 

Often has the writer been asked the question, if the Linzees knew 
when they changed from the Scottish form Lindsay or the English 
spelling Lindsey, to our system of ending the name with an " ie " or 
" ee ", and the use of " z " instead of " s "? Our answer has been 
that we could show the precise spelling Linzee for over three hundred 
years, while the form Linsee was even older and derived from the 
spelling of the name in the more ancient documents and seals. A 
few instances will now prove this statement. 

In Raine's North Durham, Appendix, pp. 38-39, the seal of Walter 
de Lindessie (5), the ancestor of the Scottish Lindsays, is unfortu- 
nately mutilated as follows: 

" SIG(IL)LV(M). (GAUTI)I. DE LINDESSIE ". 

Then follows the seal of William de Lindeseie (8), the son of Walter 
de Lindessie (5), both of Ercildun, which is happily intact, as follows: 

" SIGILLVM. WILLELMI. DE. LINDESEIE ". 

(See records in Chapter III., Section III.; and the seals in Vol. I., 
just before Chapter I., in that interesting work, " The Lives of the 
Lindsays ", by Lord Lindsay), 

The previous William de Lindeseie of Ercildun was a witness to a 
grant by Wilham King of Scots, when his name was spelt William de 
Lyndsee (Cal. Doc. Scot., 11:421). 

Clearly these seals show, better than the method in any charter, 
how Walter and Wilham of Ercildun wished their names to be spelt, 

yrV 423 



424 THE LINZEE NAME. 

especially :us the writings in of the names in the ancient documents 
were usually the work of scribes. The seal is the mode of its owner, 
and therefore should have precedence. In the Appendix, Vol. I., of 
the " Lives of the Lindsays ", charters show the name ending with 
an " a ", " e ", " i ", and " y ", thus indicating a variation among 
those who wrote them. The form Lindeseie appears to be the best 
of all the spelhngs, the most in use, and existed prior to 1170; it 
and the very ancient names " Lindissi and Lindisse " are synony- 
mous, and are perhaps a corruption of the Lindon of Ptolemy, 
with the affix " e " or " ey " meaning " isle ". (See also p. 8 and 
pp. 189-190). 

The tendency to shorten names, which time and common sense 
brought about, when applied to the name " Lindeseie ", naturally 
reduced it to Lindesei or Lindesee, Lindese, Lindsee, Lindsie, Lindsi, 
and Lindes, the last spelling maintaining the ancient origin from 
Lindens-eye, but not in harmony with the generally accepted sound 
and appearance of the name. The final sound of " e" is thus a 
marked characteristic even when the ending is with an " i " or " y ", 
and another feature is the fact that the name is never properly less 
than two syllables, such as Lins, Linse, or Lindse. Consequently the 
name Lindsee should always have the final " e ". The English 
form Lindsey is of course in harmony with the ancient origin, but 
by omitting the final " e " loses much in both orthography and 
etymology. 

The orthography of the surnames of persons, at first, was inti- 
mately related to place and employment, but later the variations 
became more closely identified with the tastes of individuals, there- 
fore as the " s " and " z" were interchangeable, it is not surprising 
that some branches changed Lindsee into Lindzee, since the sound 
of " z " is more easily pronounced. The " d " is generally silent, or 
can be assimilated into " s " or " z", thereby creating the name 
Linzee. But, perhaps, it is more correct to change " Lindsee " into 
" Linzee ", as the sound of " ds " is the same as that of " z ". The 
word Deuswounds shortens to Dswounds, which is the same as 
Zounds. (See Skeat's English Etymology, and Sir James A. H. 
Murray's, A New EngHsh Dictionary). 

Consequently we claim that the name "Linzee " is formed from the 
ancient spelling of " Lindeseie ", by simply removing superfluous 
letters and not by capriciously changing the letters themselves, and 
that it is phonetically correct. 

If we turn to the records of England, which country is undoubtedly 
the origin of the name, because of the district of Lindeseie in county 
Lincoln, we will find the final " e " ending in vogue for centuries 
after the Conquest, and, from 1300, supported by the probates 
registered at Somerset House, London, which are given in Chapter 
IV. Other examples can be shown in abundance, but London has 



THE LINZEE NAME. 425 

been selected for comparison, as there the art of writing was more 
advanced than in the various counties, with the possible exceptions 
of Oxford and Cambridge. 

So much misconception has arisen concerning the origin of the 
Linzees, that it is well to have our ancestry traced to its proper source, 
and to divest it of all conjecture at least as far back as 1627, when 
Thomas Linzee (101) of Portsea was born, and to add that his most 
probable ancestry ought to make him a descendant of the Lynsye 
family seated at Wimborne Minster in the county of Dorset as 
early as 1511, which might be derived from the Lindeseies of Scot- 
land. But beyond Thomas Linzee (101), the proof of his hne of 
ascent is lost, only the tradition in every branch of his descendants 
remains, which has for its chief support the statement of Samuel 
1st Viscount Hood, on file in the College of Arms, at London, who 
claimed that the said Thomas Linzee was descended from the " Lin- 
zees of Scotland ". His Lordship undoubtedly knew he was right, 
but he failed to record the pedigree, and so the particular branch of 
the Linzees of Scotland to which Thomas Linzee belonged rests in 
impenetrable uncertainty. 

tjnder number (100) and his own number (101), a few 

theories will be indulged in concerning Thomas' ancestry. The pedi- 
gree of Viscount Hood appears under Thomas Linzee (103). 

Thomas Linzee (103), the son of Thomas Linzee (101), was the 
first of his family, so far known, to place his Hfe in the pubfic service 
of his country. He supervised the manufacture of the rope and 
rigging destined for the British Navy in the Government Dockyard 
at Portsmouth, near the adjoining town of Portsea, thereby con- 
tributing a factor to the efficiency of England's men of war. In this 
pursuit he was succeeded at Portsmouth by his son Thomas Linzee 
(106) who died in 1737, and by his grandson John Linzee (109), the 
son of John Linzee (105), at the Government Dockyard at Devon- 
port, near Plymouth, Devon, from 1750 to 1787, but both these 
dates are somewhat uncertain. 

To Edward Linzee (107), third son of Thomas Linzee (103), a 
surgeon and apothecary, we must grant the wreath of business 
acumen and political sagacity. No one surpassed him as mayor of 
the corporation of Portsmouth, whose administration he controlled 
in harmony with the interests of King George, being a favorite with 
the monarch, against the attacks of a powerful combination of Inde- 
pendents and Whigs who desired to wrest from Edward Linzee the 
government of a town the port of which sheltered the greatest naval 
and civil marine interests of Great Britain. To his home the officers 
of the Navy came courting for other favors than the hands of his 
daughters and nieces. To him we principally owe the rise in the 
wealth and social prominence of the Linzees. For his municipal 
services, he was offered knighthood by George III., in 1778, but he 
declined that honour. 



42C THE LINZEE NAME. 

Mary Linzee (111), the daughter of John Linzee (105), married 
Edward Penfold; he and at least four of his sons served their govern- 
ment in positions of importance; the second son WiUiam Penfold 
(111-1) was a designer and constructor of some of England's wooden 
battle ships. Many of her descendants are serving with distinction 
in the British fleet in the North Sea on the Superb, Dido and Topaz. 
Her granddaughter Rebecca Penfold (111-7) married Rear-Admiral 
John Pasco, who was Flag-Lieutenant or Signal Officer of the Victory 
to the famous fighting Admiral Horatio Nelson, and unfurled at the 
Battle of Trafalgar that soul stirring message " England expects that 
every man will do his duty ". Another descendant Horatia Victoria 
Elizabeth Atchison Pasco (111-16) married Admiral John Bonne- 
maison Bunch McHardy, who, in addition to distinguished naval 
services, was known as the founder of the police of England. 

Susannah Linzee (114), daughter of Edward Linzee (107), brought 
distinction to her family by her marriage to Samuel 1st Viscount 
Hood, one of the most capable of England's Admirals. To him was 
assigned the difficult task of holding in check the ambitious designs 
of world dominion by Napoleon L, which responsibility he handed 
down to Admiral Nelson, whose naval experiences were to a large 
extent gained under the immediate command of Hood. Lady Hood 
was in Boston, Mass., previous to the perilous times of the American 
Revolution, and left pleasant memories of her amiable personality. 

Admiral Robert Linzee (117), brother of Viscountess Hood, was 
the first of our name to attain that high rank in the British Navy. 
To him for gallant services rendered his country in the hour of peril, 
the thanks of both houses of Parliament were voted. His brother 
Edward Linzee Jr., trod somewhat in the footsteps of their father, 
but less conspicuously. 

Captain John Linzee (118), founder of the American branch, was 
the son of John Linzee (109) of Plymouth. He did his part in the 
battles between the mother country and her American Colonies, and 
in the naval encounters waged between England and France in the 
waters of the New World. His frigate the Falcon was one of the 
first to fire on the redoubt at the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775, 
where bound by duty, the oath of allegiance and loyalty, he aimed 
a British shot intending to shatter the hopes of the new-born American 
hberty, and his act is more to be admired because it was fettered by 
wedlock to an American wife, and deep attachment to American 
friends, which, in the hour of peace and after the death of his wife 
in 1792 in Boston, led to him settle in Milton, Mass., where he died 
in 1798. He and his descendants have held, both in England and 
in America, excellent positions in business and social circles, through 
intermarriages with families of distinction. 

Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee (120), son of Captain John Linzee 
(118), was one of the youngest Admirals in the British service; he 
saw fighting from the Indian Ocean to the shores of Denmark, where 



THE LINZEE NAME. 427 

he served under Nelson. His untimely death at the age of forty six 
deprived his branch of further honours which his career and ability 
indicated that he would have achieved. 

These names are glory enough to excuse the compilation of this 
family history, but we must not fail to draw attention to the lives of 
young lieutenants, Edward, Richard, and Samuel Hood Jr. Linzee, 
which are cherished for their devotion to their country, though passing 
away on duty at an early age, without the accumulation of higher 
honours. Also we must eulogize the descendants of Admiral Samuel 
Hood Linzee of other names serving in the British Army, in the past 
and today. 

To these we can add the names of those devoted to the Church, 
Rev. Edward Linzee (119) and his son Rev. Edward Hood Linzee 
(127), and those who have led honourable and successful business 
careers, John Inman Linzee (123), Robert George Linzee (128), 
Thomas C. Amory Linzee (134) and John Wilham Linzee (135), the 
last a Vice Consul-general of the United States of America at Cal- 
cutta, India. 

If the lives of generations living today are examined, it will be 
found that they are taking an active share in the affairs of the old 
world and of the new, in the domain of patriotism and the field of 
utility. 

The astonishing national English careers of the descendants of Vis- 
countess Susannah (Linzee) Hood (114), many of whom are in high 
authority at the front in the present European War, and the bril- 
hant business successes of the descendants of Hannah Rowe 
(Linzee) Amory (121), and Susannah (Linzee) Tilden (122), many 
of whom fought for the abolition of slavery in our lamentable civil 
strife of 1861-1864, all lend a charm and interest to the compilation 
of the genealogy of their lives, showing their mutual relationships 
to each other and to the Linzees. 



SECTION II. 
THE LIMESI FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 

Before proceeding to the history of those who clearly bore the 
name " Linzee ", a chronological arrangement will be given of the 
Limesis and Lindeseies domiciled in Hampshire and other counties 
in the south of England, to whom special attention should be drawn 
on account of their geographical proximity to Portsea, Hants, the 
home of Thomas Linzee (101), the ancestor of the Linzees. 

This compilation is not to be interpreted as an attempt to write a 
pedigree, in any sense of the word, but only a convenient means of 
presenting miscellaneous records and attracting attention to inter- 
esting genealogical possibilities. 

Lord Lindsay, when writing his " Lives of the Lindsays ", found 
it impossible to begin the history of the great house of Lindsay without 
bringing in the Limesi family of Normandy which settled in England 
with the Conqueror, as the probable progenitor of the Scottish founder 
Walter de Lindeseie (1) of Cumbria and Scotland (0- And strange 
to say, an account of the Lindeseye famiUes in the south of England, 
and the same is true of all except the north of England, cannot be 
recorded from early times without introducing some branch of the 
same Limesi family as the nearest possible origin of the race. 

The devastating civil wars of the White and Red Roses, have 
eliminated the continuous links in the descent of the branch of the 
Limesi family seated at Winchester and Southampton, in Hampshire; 
but enough remains to show that they existed there and in the ad- 
joining counties for centuries, in so far as the principal or older sons 
are concerned, and that their numbers make it quite impossible for 
all of their junior branches to have become extinct. The Linsey 
family of Stoke Charity, near Winchester, undeniably possesses a 
strong probabiHty of descent from the Limesis, and the same is true 
in a less degree of all Lindseyes in the south of England. 

Evidence will also be presented showing that Scottish Lindsays 
made settlements in these southern parts.

Norman Seigneurie, son of Ralph de Toesni (See Chapter III., Sec- 
tion I.) . He was father of Radulfus de Limesi (2) . 

2. RADULFUS or RALPH DE LIMESI, son of Hugo de Limesi 
(1); b. about 1040, in Normandy, came with the Conqueror into 
England and fought at the battle of Hastings in 1066 (See Chapter 
III., Section L). Probable father of Ricardus de Limesi (3) of

Winchester, county Hants, England, the possible ancestor of the 
Limesis in the south of England. 

3. RICARDUS DE LIMESI, probable son of Radulfus de Limesi 
(2); b. about 1075-1080; he resided in Flesmangerestret, Winchester, 
Hants, England, according to an ancient survey ordered by King 
Henry I., which was completed between 1107-1128 (Liber Winton, 
pp. 552-53, given under Hampshire in Chapter I., Section III.). 
The date of completion was more correctly between 1103-1115. 

From the fact that this Richard's name does not appear in the 
Domesday Survey, it can be argued that he is not a younger brother 
of the said Radulfus de Limesi (2) ; he is here assumed to be a younger 
son of the said Radulfus, as his presumed father and brother Radulfus 
de Limesi (3) were witnesses, in the reigns of WiUiam I. or II., and 
Henry I., of royal charters in favor of the convent of St. Swithun's, 
Winchester (See Chapter III., Section I.). 

He is probably the father of Robertus de Limeseia (4) of Hamte- 
scira, and Rogo de Limesia (5) of WOtescira, both living in 1131 
(Magnum Rot. Scaccarii vel Magnum Rot. Pipae de anno tricesimo 
primo Regni Henrici Prima, by Joseph Hunter, pp. 22, 38, 41). 



4. ROBERTUS DE LIMESEIA, probably the son of Ricardus de 
Limesi (3); b. about 1105. Hamtescira, Robt' de Limesia, deb. dim.

de anno tricesimo primo Regni Henrici Prima, by Joseph Hunter, 
pp. 38, 41). Robertus de Limeseia was a donor of the lands of 
Betheslega to the Prior and Convent of St. Denis, by Southampton, 
Hants, in the time of King Stephen, who reigned 1135-54 (Charter 
RoUs, 111:338).

The Priory of St. Denis (Southampton) was founded by Henry I., 
about the year 1124 for Austin Canons. King Stephen confirmed to 
the canons the grant of land at Baddesley made by Robert de Limesey 
(The Victoria Hist, of Hampshire, II: 160). 



430 THE LIMESI FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 

The Hospital of St. Cross, near Winchester was founded about 
1136 by Bishop Henry de Blois. The first master mentioned in a 
grant of Bishop Blois, was Robert de Limesia in 1136, who was not 
succeeded by Roger the next master until 1185 (The Victoria Hist, 
of Hampshire, II: 193-4, 196). 

Either Robertus de Limeseia (4) or Roger de Limesia (5) is the 
probable father of Ricardus de Limesi (7). 

5. ROGER DE LIMESIA, probable son of Ricardus de Limesi 
(3); b. about 1110; Rogo de Limesia of Wiltescira was mentioned 
in 1131 (Magnum Rot. Scaccarii vel Magnum Rot. Pipae de anno 
tricessimo primo Regni Henrici Prima, by Joseph Hunter, p. 22). 
He is probably the father of Alexander de Limesia (8). See records 
under Robertus de Limeseia (4). 

6. ALEXANDER DE LIMESI AND WIFE ROHAIS DE 
AMBLIS, they signed a charter to S. John of Colchester, county 
Essex, which was witnessed by Paganus Clericus de Rumeseie and 
Waltenis de Limesi, from 1139-46 (See Chapter II., contributed by 
William A. Lindsay). Alexander has been included in this list, as 
an Alexander de Limesi witnessed a grant to the Priory of St. Denys 
near Southampton in 1191-92, which record appears under Ricardus 
de Limesi (7). 

7. RICARDUS DE LIMESIE, probable son of Robertus de 
Limeseia (4) or of Roger de Limesia (5); b. about 1135; perhaps he 
is the Ric de Limesi in Berkshire in 1166 (Pipe Roll Soc, IX: 120); 
and the Ric de Limisia of Southampton, Hants in 1167 (Pipe Roll 
Soc, XI: 194), whose identity can be traced from 1167-85 in the 
same locality (Pipe Roll Soc, XI-XXXIV, inclusive). Richard of 
Limesey took up the Old farm of Southampton, for the last quarter 
of 1167 (The Victoria History of Hampshire, III: 505). He is prob- 
ably the Richard de Limesi who, in connection with the " Fee-farm ", 
in the years 1170-71, rendered an account from the old farm of 
Hanton (Southampton) and also from the new farm (Hist. South- 
ampton, Hants, England, by Rev. J. S. Davies, p. 30); and the 
Richard de Limesy of Southampton in 1170-71, who rendered an 
account for Roger Fitz Leonard, for conveying to Ireland the King's 
supplies, and who probably in 1183-4, was the Richard de Limesey, 
Marshall, carried over into Ireland, as mentioned by an account 
rendered by Gilbert Pipard at Chester (Cal. Doc. Ireland, 1171-1251, 
pp. 1, 10). Richard de Limesia, marshal in Ireland was also men- 
tioned in 1185 (Pipe Roll Soc, XXXIII: 28, 63). But it is possible 
that Richard de Limesi of Berkshire in 1166 is a distinct person from 
Richard de Limesi, marshal, in 1185. 



THE LIMESI FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 431 

It is quite possible that Richard de Limesi, the marshal of 1185, 
is the Ricardus de Limesie, who with Alexander de Limesia the son of 
Roger, were witnesses, in 1191-92, to a grant by William Brewer to 
the Priory of St. Denys, near Southampton, of twenty shillings of 
rent, with Hugo Bard., [probably Bardulf], and others (Pipe Roll 
Soc, X: 99-100). A Hugo Bardulf was the husband of Amablis de 
Limesi, the daughter of Gerardus de Limesi (5) of the main Une of 
Limesis in Warwickshire (Chapter IIL, Section L, and Rot. Char- 
tarum, p. 150b); thus another link of relationship is probably shown 
between the Limesis of Wolverley and the branch in Hampshire. 

Ricardus de Limesi (7) probably d. about 1200, leaving a son and 
heir Henry de Limesey (9) of Southampton and of West Tisted 
(Abbreviatio Placitorum, p. 42). 

Contemporary with Ricardus (7) there was an Urso de Limis in 
Sussex in 1194 (Rot. Curiae Regis, I: 78, 94). 

In 1203, flourished a Roger de Limesi v. Robert Trusse in Wicham 
(Cal. Feet of Fines, Suffolk, by Walter Rye, p. 10). 

The Victorian History of England, Hampshire and the 

Isle of Wight. 

(111:59-61) West Tisted Manor. With regards to the actual 
holders of the manor various members of the family of Limesi held 
lands in West Tisted in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Towards 
the end of the twelfth century, Richard de Limesi died seised of one 
hide in West Tisted, leaving a son and heir Henry (Abbrev. Plac. 
p. 42). As he was in debt to the King his lands were confiscated, but 
they were released to Henry in his petition of 1203, to hold from year 
to year as the farmer of the King until the debt was paid in full 
(Ibid.). Some thirty years later Roger de Limesi, who was also in 
debt to the King, was slain, and in 1234 the sheriff was ordered to 
deliver his chattels to any lawful man of the county who would be 
responsible to the King for part payment of the debts (Excerpt E 
Rot. Fin., I: 257). Roger's heir was a certain Adam de Limesi, who 
seems to have taken no steps in this direction, but alienated all his 
property to the priories of Newark and Selborne, apparently in order 
to shift the responsibility of payment from his own shoulders to 
theirs. Thus in 1242 he granted half a carucate in West Tisted 
(later called Merryfield) to the prior of Newark in frankalmoign in 
return for two corrodies in food and drink during his life: a canon's 
corrody and a groom's corrody at Newark (Feet of Fines, Hants, 
Mich. 26 Hen. III.) . About the same time he granted two messuages 
and lands in West Tisted to the prior and canons of Selborne to hold 
of him and his heirs by the annual payment of a pound of cummin 
(Selborne Chart. Hants, p. 31). As Adam had foreseen, King Henry 
III. demanded the payment of Roger de Limesi's debts from the 
priory of Newark, and an arrangement was made that the prior 



432 THE LIMESI FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 

should pay a mark every year into the royal exchequer until the 
debt of £276. 14s. 3d. was paid in full. However, the prior of Newark 
pleaded that the prior of Selborne also was holding property in West 
Tisted which had belonged to Roger de Limesi and should also help 
in the payment of his debts. The possessions of both the priors in 
West Tisted were valued in 1266, and it was ascertained that those 
of the prior of Newark were worth £4 a year, while those of the 
prior of Selborne were only worth 8s. a year. It was accordingly 
arranged that the latter should pay Is. 23/^d. every year to the prior 
of Newark towards the payment of Roger de Limesi's debts (Harl. 
MS. 44, H. 42 Selborne Chart., Hants, p. 59). It is clear therefore, 
that all lands which belonged to the Limesis in West Tisted were 
divided before 1250 between the priories of Selborne and Newark. 
Hence there is no mention of the family of Limesi in connection with 
West Tisted after that date. 



8. ALEXANDER DE LIMESIA, the son of Roger who is prob- 
ably the Roger de Limesia (5) of Wiltshire; b. about 1140; liv. in 
1191-92, as Alexander de Limesia the son of Roger, and Ricardus de 
Limesie, his senior in rank, who were witnesses to a grant by William 
Brewer to the Priory of St. Denys, near Southampton, of twenty 
shillings of rent, with Hugo Bard., and others (Pipe Roll Soc, X: 
99-100). 

In 1200, there was an Alex, de Lymesy, and Roes ux sue (Rot. 
Chartarum, p. 69). 
He is probably the father of Nicholas de Limesie (10). 

9. HENRY DE LIMESEY, son of Ricardus de Limesey (7); b. 
about 1165; Henry the son of Ricardus de Limesey was of Southton, 
Hants, in 1204, he had a dispute with Hugo de Tisted about land in 
Tisted (Abbreviatio Placitorum, p. 42). A Henry de Limesie was of 
Southampton in 1207 (Rot. de Oblatis et Finibus, p. 447). Ricardus 
de Limesia and son Henry were witnesses to a deed, now deposited 
in the archives of Queen's College, Oxford, by Willelmus de 
Chelegrava, granting the lands of Heckelia concerning the 
foundations of the Hospital of St. Julian or House of God at 
Southampton and the Priory of Monk Sherborne, co. Hants, at 
the end of John's or the beginning of the reign of Henry III., 
or about 1215-16 (0 (Hist. Manuscript Comm. 4th Rep. 1874, 
p. 454, see Hampshire). 

A Henry de Limesia admits the right of W". Dacus to half a hide 
in Incerton (Somerset). 3 John. (Fines, Chapter II.). 

The heir of Henry de Limesey (9) was Roger de Lymesy (11), who 
could be his son.

THE LIMESI FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 433 

10. NICHOLAUS DE LIMESIE, probable son of Alexander de 
Limesie (8) ; b. about 1170; Nicholaus de Limese and wife Margarete 
were living in 1217-20, in Southampton, Hants, the county of Kent, 
Chichester in Sussex, and Geldeford in Surrey, and his wife had 
sisters Dionisia and Florencia, and the church of Sutton in Wilts 
was also mentioned (Patent Rolls). In 1227, a charter of Richard 
Aquilun, giving to the church of Holy Trinity at Cycestre, the church 
of Burcham, was witnessed by Nicholaus de Limesia and WiUiam de 
Limis (Charter Rolls, 1:35), where the William de Limis, an un- 
doubted Limesi, has not been previously recorded elsewhere, and 
remains unidentified. 

It is not probable that he is the Nicholas de Limesi mentioned in 
1242 (Close Rolls) . He is probably the father of Walterus de Lymesie 
(12), John de Lymesy (13), and perhaps also the father or uncle of 
Ricardus de Limesia (15). 

Contemporary with Nicholaus and his probable sons, there existed 
a CoUno de Limesia, called bahstarius, from 1222-24 (Rot. Litt. 
Claus., I: 508-9, 536, 547b, 553b, 558, 561b, 582b, 587, 592, 597).

There was a Jurdanus de Limesi in Derebi in 1200 (Rot. Curiae 
Regis, 11:110). 



11. ROGER DE LIMESI, probable son of Henry de Limesey (9) 
of West Tisted in Hampshire; b. about 1190; slain by his enemies in 
1234 (Excerpta E Rot. Fin., I: 257). He was probably the father or 
elder brother of Adam de Limesi who was of West Tisted in 1242, 
who was Roger's heir. The said Adam could be born, if his son, 
about 1215. 

There was a Roger de Lymeseya, canon of Exeter c. 1220 (Devon 
and Cornwall Notes and Queries, VIII: 159). 

12. WALTERUS DE LIMESIE, probable son of Nicholas de 
Limesie (10); b. after 1200; perhaps he is the Walterus de Lymese 
with letters of protection in 1229 (Patent Rolls), but this is doubtful; 
Walter de Lymes' and Margeria his mother were in Sussex in 1235, 
who is probablv the Walter de Lymes and wife Matilda in Sussex in 
1242 (Close RoUs).

Rolls, 1476-85, p. 121). 

25. RICARDO LYNSEY, of the parish of St. Thomas the Martyr, 
SaUsbury, Wilts, in 1507-8 (Hist. Manuscript Comm. Various Col- 
lections, I: 353). 

26. SYMON LYNSEY, of the parish of Wimborne Minster, co. 
Dorset, husbandman, signed his will the 20 Dec. 1511, in it he men- 
tioned his two youngest daughters viz: Margaret Lynsey and Alice 
Lynsey , minors, and plans for their bringing up ; the residue to be 
equally divided amongst his five children viz: Willm Lynsey, Mary 
Lynsey, Avis Lynsey and the said Margaret and Alice, who are his 
executors. Also his overseers were John Lynsey the elder, John 
Lynsey the younger and WilUam Willis. Witnesses: John Lynsey 
the elder and Thomas Abraham. No date of probate for this nun- 
cupative will. 

27. JOHN LYNSEY, the elder and John Lynsey the younger 
mentioned the 20 Dec. 1511 in the will of Symon Lynsey of Wim- 
borne Minster (26). 

28. WILLIAM LYNSYE, of Kingston Lacy within the parish of 
Wimborne Minster, co. Dorset, made his will the 3 Nov. 1593; in 
which he mentioned son-in-law William Weringe, daughter Margery 
Lynsey; residue to son John Lynsye the younger and daughter 



442 THE LINDESEIE FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 

Margery, the executors. Witnesses: Richard Barns and William 
Coffin. No date of probate. 

He might be the Willm Lynse mentioned in the will of John Lynsey 
(29). 

29. JOHN LYNSEY, of Wimborne Minster, co. Dorset, made his 
will the 22 Mar. 1593, mentioning five children viz., John, Edward, 
Edyth, Ann and Mary; wife Margery his executrix; also his well 
loved in Christ Willm Lynse and Willm . . . ; also to John Markreel 
of . . . Hill . . . , Thomas Swyne, Thomas . . . , John Lockett. 
Witnesses: William . . . W^illiam Brinton. No date of probate. 

The names of the son Edward Lynsey, and of John Lockett suggest 
that this family is the same as that of Edward Lin zee (80), mayor of 
Weymouth, Dorset. The second son Edward of this w411, appears to 
be of full age in 1593, hence perhaps too old to be Edward Linzee, 
the mayor; yet there is a strong possibihty from the custom in 
English genealogy of mentioning all the sons first, that Edward is 
the youngest child or a minor, in which case he could be Edward 
Linzee of Weymouth who was certainly over 21 years of age in 1617. 

30. JOHN LINSEY, of Curfe Mullen, co. Dorset, made his will 
the 12 Apr. 1620, mentioning kinswoman Margaret Lynsey, Richard 
Presley of Congrove and Margery Newman of Hinton-Martill ; 
residuary legatees and executors, WiUiam Lynsey of Wimborne 
Minster, kinsman, and his son John Lynsey; overseers, William 
Hobby and John Bruer; witnesses, Wilham Flooke, Walter Wheeler. 
Proved in London, 20 May 1620 by the oath of Wm. Lynsey one of 
the exors., reserving power for John Linsey the other exor. On 31 
Jan. 1649-50, a commission was granted to John Lynsey the other 
exor. and son of Wilham Lynsey, the said WiUiam his father having 
died. (P.C.C. Soame:45, Somerset Reg.). 

31. JOHN LYNDSEY, of Stoke Charity, near Winchester, Hants 
England; he had a daughter bapt. there 9 June 1544; and Elizabeth 
the wife of John Lynsey was bur. there 24 Aug. 1559. The records 
do not disclose whether he had any male issue. (See records under

THE LINDESEIE FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 445 

53. PETER LINDSEY, a burgess of Portsmouth, Hants, the 31 
Oct. 1635 (Extracts from the Records of Portsmouth, England, by 
Robert East). A Captain Peter Lindsey was buried the 7 May 
1638 (Reg. of Winchester Cathedral). Also a Captain Peter Lindsey 
was granted command of a ship in the Royal Navy by the King in 
1635 (Cal. State Papers, Domestic). 

54. FRANCISCUS LINDSEY, of Wickham, Hants, England; he 
had a wife Ehzabeth, by his administration in 1641. Francis Linsey 
was buried at Wickham, 22 Mar. 1640, Pater famiUas. (See records 
under Hampshire, Chapter I., Section IIL). 

55. JOHN LINDSEY, his daughter Mary Lindsey married John 
Ingpen, son of Wilham and Susan (Trewman) Ingpen of Whitehorse 
in the New Forest, co. Southampton, Hants, England (Berry's Hants 
Pedigrees.). 

56. JOHN LINDSAY. Moundsmere Manor, — The crown held 
a rent from Moundsmere which was granted by James I, to his 
Queen Anne (Pat. 11 Jas. I., pt. 13. m. 4.), and by Charles II. to 
Lord Hawley and others in trust for John Lindsay who has undertaken 
to defray £25,384. 2s. Id. due from the crown to London city. (The 
Victoria History of England, Hampshire, III: 376). 

57. THOMAS LINZE, of Arreton, Isle of Wight, Hants, England; 
his administration mentioned his wife Elizabeth, but no further details, 
in 1663; bur. 3 Dec. 1661, as Thomas Linze, at Arreton; Elizabeth 
Linsy, widow, was buried there, 22 May 1664. (See records under 
Hampshire, Chapter I., Section III.). He could be the father of 
Thomas Linzee (101) of Portsea. See (58). 

58. ELIZABETH LYNSEY, widow, of Barlavington, Sussex, Eng- 
land; buried there 28 May 1664; her will made 13 May 1664, men- 
tioned her being in the service of the lady Mary wife of Sidney Goring, 
Bart.; she left cottages etc. to be equally divided between her four 
children, her son and three daughters. (See records under Sussex, 
Chapter I., Section III.). She could be the mother of Thomas 
Linzee (101) of Portsea, but she is probably not the wife of Thomas 
Linze (57) of Arreton above. 

80. EDWARD LINZEE, probably the son of John Lynsey (29) 
of Wimborne Minster, co. Dorset; yet he might be a nephew or 
grandson of the said John Lynsey; b. before 1596, at probably Wim- 
borne Minster, where the church register does not begin until 1635;

he d. before the 13 Jan. 1645, when adm. of his estate was granted; 

m. 1st EHzabeth , about 1617-18; she was bur. 6 Apr. 1627, 

Church of St. Mary's, Melcombe Regis, Weymouth (Par. Reg.), as 
EHzabeth wife of Edward Lynzey. 

Edward Linzee perhaps m. a 2d wife, but no proof of this has been 
found; Mr. Robert George Linzee (128), in a letter written before 
1890, reported a widow AHce Linzee in Portsea about 1680, but she 
could hardly be his widow at so advanced a date; furthermore there 
is no proof that he left a widow, and the existence of Alice Linzee 
of Portsea could not be confirmed by an original document. 

The registers of the parishes of Melcombe Regis and Radipole 
(See Chapter I., Section III., under Dorsetshire) show, from the 
scarcity of the Linzey entries, that Edward Linzee or his ancestors 
originated from some other parish in Dorset, and that neither he nor 
a brother left male issue living there. Also attention must be drawn 
to the baptism of Judith dau. of Thomas Carolas Londise, the 10 Nov. 
1613, in the register, since the name Londise is exactly that of John 
Linzee (109) when he married Rose Guisage at St. Mary's, Portsea 
(Par. Reg.). 

It is worthy of notice that three of the daughters of Edward Linzee 
gave the name of Thomas to their eldest son.

Sir Richard Nicholas Howard, J.P. 

Town Clerk. 
Dear Sir: — 

I am obHged by your letter and you are quite correct in stating 
that in the year 1626 and also in the year 1638 Edward Linzee was 
the Mayor of this Town since which the pedigree has been completely 
lost and nothing known of the family or any person bearing that name. 
I have never heard of his will or his having left property. If he left 
a will and it is anywhere it would be in Somerset House London 
where all the old wills throughout the country were placed some 
years ago or it may by chance be found in the probate registry 
Blandford Dorset. We have nothing in the Minutes that can throw 
any light upon him or his Descendants. 
I am 

Your obedient servant, 

R. N. Howard 

Town Clerk.

THE LINDESEIE FAMILY IN THE SOUTH OF ENGLAND. 



447 



Edward Linzee was a merchant of Weymouth, Dorset, England; 
Edward Lynsey's name first apperd by fine, the 10 Dec. 1617, as a 
Freeman of Waymouth andMelcombe Regis; and from 1619-27, five 
children were baptized to Edward Linzey in the church of St. Mary's 
at Melcombe Regis, Weymouth. But in the ofl&cial records of Wey- 
mouth, he was called Edward Linzee, mayor of Weymouth and Mel- 
combe Regis, in 1626, and again elected in 1638; and from 1630-6, 
Edward Linze, also called Mr. Lindsey of Weymouth, owned two 
ships, the Dolphin and Desire of Weymouth, which were engaged in 
the Newfoundland trade between that country and Portsmouth, 
England. (Cal. State Papers, Domestic). 

There is therefore no doubt that Edward, bore the surname of 
Linzee, and that all the other spellings of his name can be accounted 
for as the methods of those who recorded his name when it was their 
duty to do so.

Edward Linzee's will was made in 1645, but the original or a copy 
could not be found in the probate registry at Blandford, Dorset, or 
in the registry at Somerset House, London. Administration of his 
estate was first granted to his son-in-law William Fry of Ashgrove, 
Wilts, on the 13 Jan. 1645 in the Consistory Court at Blandford; 
but owing to litigation a commission in 1649 was issued to 
John Fry and his wife, a daughter of Edward Linzee, who took 
out administration in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, in 
London. 

(Prerog. Ct. Act Book, 1649, Somerset House, London). Edward 
Lyndsey. On the 11 May, there issued a commission to John Fry 
and (blank) Fry, alias Lindsey his wife, daughter of Edward 
Lynzey, late of Weymouth and Melcombe Regis, in the Co. 
of Dorset, to administer the goods of the said deceased, accord- 
ing to the tenor of his will, because Robert Geear and Henry 
Cuttance, executors, expressly renounced the charge of executing 
the same.

SECTION IV. 

THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

In order to emphasize the fact that the ancestry of Thomas Linzee 
(101) of Portsea, Hants, England, has not been proved back to any 
Lunesi, Lindsey, or Lindsay family, the classification of the Linzee 
family will be arbitrarily started with number 100. 

100. LINZEE, whose christian name has not been de- 
termined; he might be, in the order of probability, either John the 
son of William Lynsye (28) of Wimborne Minster, Dorset, or John 
the son of John Lynsey (29) of the same place; or a brother of Edward 
Linzee (80) mayor of Weymouth, Dorset, or the said Edward Linzee 
himself; but there are strong reasons for ehminating Edward as the 
father of Thomas Linzee (101) of Portsea, the known ancestor of all 
bearing the surname Linzee, since the names of Thomas and Dorothy 
are not among the known children of Edward. 

Perhaps this ancestor might be Thomas Linze (57) of Arreton, in 
the Isle of Wight, Hants; or the husband of Ehzabeth Lynsey (58) 
of Barlavington, Sussex; or he might be of the family of Richard 
Lenzie (50) of Pulborough, Sussex. 

Next in order this ancestor might be descended from the Linseys 
of Stoke Charity (31-34) near Winchester, or of Nicholas Linzee of 
Cranborne (48), with the chance that Franciscus Lindsey (54) of 
Wickham, Hants, is the connecting link; or he might be Peter 
Lindsey (53), a burgess of Portsmouth, the 31 Oct. 1635; or 
a scion of the Lindseys in Sussex, Surrey, Wilts, Kent, and 
London. 

All of the above lines, except that of Buxsted, Sussex, are possible 
offshoots of the great Norman House of Limesi, whose branches, as 
already shown, were seated for centuries in the south of England. 
(See Chapter I., Section III.; and Chapter V., Sections 11. and 
III.). 

Finally, the presence of Daniel de Lisle, Miles, and Thomas Lisle, 
burgesses of Portsmouth, the 26 Feb. 1616-17 and 1640-41, respec- 
tively, and of John Lisle one of the Lord Commissioners of the great 
seals of England, as a burgess there in 1655, lead to the interpretation 
that the Linzees are descended from a branch of the distinguished 
family of de Lisle seated for centuries in the Isle of Wight, but this 
is a very remote possibiUty.

451 



452 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

101. THOMAS LINZEE, son of Linzee (100) and 

; b. about 1627, by his gravestone, which is the oldest in the 



churchyard of St. Mary's, Kingston, Portsea, Hants, England, and 
on that account still left standing in spite of modern alterations; it 
bears the inscriptions of himself and his wife Elizabeth as follows: 
" Here lyeth the body of Thomas Linzee who dyed November 3^ 
IQ*** Annod 1680 in y'' 53"^ year of his age ", and " Here also lyeth 
y* body of Elizabeth wife of Thomas Linzee who died y^ 10'^'' day of 
May 1679 in y*' 50 yeare of her age ". The stone itself is well pre- 
served, but in 1915 Mr. Alfred Penfold reported that it had been 
damaged by boys playing in the churchyard. The record of William 
Penfold shown by the photograph was put on prior to 1881, by his 
son William Penfold who died in 1882; then Mr. Frederick Penfold 
had the stone repaired in 1887, without adding anything to it; 
recently Mr. Lewis Linzee renovated it, when the present photograph 
was taken which appears in this history. Thomas Lyndesey was 
bur. 29 Nov. 1680, Church of St. Mary's, Kingston, Portsea (Par. 
Reg.), which differs from the record of the gravestone, but the same 
person is evident in both records. 

It is probable that Thomas Linzee had a first wife Mariye, for a 
Mariye wife of Thomas Linslie was buried 11 Mar. 1657 according 
to the register of Portsea church, but there is no record of any child 
by her, or of their marriage. 

Thomas Linzee, as Thomas Linslie, m. Elizabeth Hills, 13 Apr. 
1658, Church of St. Mary's, Kingston, Portsea (Par. Reg.); her 
parentage could not be ascertained; a William Hilles was elected a 
burgess of Portsmouth, Hants, England, the 22 Aug. 1588; she was 
b. about 1629, by her gravestone; and was bur. 10 May 1679, Portsea 
(Par. Reg.), as Elizabeth wife of Thomas Linzley, which date agrees 
exactly with the death of Elizabeth Linzee on her and her husband 
Thomas Linzee's joint gravestone. 

The names Linslie, Linzley, Lyndesey, above, are undoubtedly 
spellings by the contemporary officials of the church who made the 
entries. 

An Alice Linzee, widow, lived at Portsea in 1680 (R. by Robert 
George Linzee); her presence has not been shown by any original 
record, consequently her proper place in the genealogy of the Linzee 
family has not been determined. 

Buckland, Kingston, and Fratton, are parts of Portsea. At Buck- 
land, is the parish church of Portsea, generally called Kingston 
Church, as it is in that district; it is dedicated to St. Mary, and is 
an imposing building, without being remarkable for its architecture; 
the square tower appears to be of more modern date than the rest 
of the structure, and has a fine chime of bells. The cemetery sur- 
rounding the church contained at one time about eight acres, and 
was one of the most magnificent in England, at present the grave 
stones are all stacked up in rows, owing to what is called modern

improvements, and permission was refused to disturb them for 
the purpose of copying the inscriptions on the Linzee monu- 
ments. 

The De Ports owned Buckland in the Domesday survey, and also 
Applestede, which is now Kingston. 

It is quite certain that Thomas Linzee did not descend from a 
family long seated at Portsea, as the scarcity of the Linzee entries 
in the registers of that parish from 1650 to 1690 clearly demonstrate. 
The records previous to 1650 were destroyed by fire, but this great 
loss does not hide the fact previously stated. Back of Thomas 
Linzee (101) several lines of possible ancestry have been pointed out, 
there now remains only the family traditions prevalent in everj' 
branch of his descendants, which agree in stating that he is a scion 
of the Lindsays of Scotland. This idea has for its main support the 
statement of Samuel First Viscount Hood, which was placed by him 
on file in the Heraldic College of Arms, at London, in 1796, when he 
claimed that Thomas Linzee (103) was " descended from the Linzees 
of Scotland ". Unhappily, Viscount Hood failed to give any pedi- 
gree of ascent, but the coat of arms granted to his wife, Susannah 
Viscountess Hood, and to her father Edward Linzee (107) and his 
descendants, is that of the Scottish Lindsays. Evidence has not 
been discovered to prove Lord Hood's statement, which he gives as 
a fact and not a probability, but it can be safely assumed that his 
views were based directly on either absolute knowledge or on family 
tradition of long standing. 

The Lindseys of Wimborne Minster, county Dorset, are probably 
descended from the Lindsays of Scotland, through some remote con- 
nection (See Numbers 18, 19, 20, 21, in Chapter V., Section IIL), 
and as they are the probable ancestors of Edward Linzee (80), mayor 
of Weymouth, who is a probable relative of the Linzees of Portsea, 
there is this reasonable assurance that Lord Hood is correct. On 
the other hand, the Lindsays of Scotland also have traditions that 
a branch or branches of their family settled in Dorset, but so far, 
except for very ancient possibilities already pointed out, only the 
line of Thomas Lindsay, Archbishop of Armagh, has been noted, 
whose armorial bearings should be consulted and compared with those 
of the Linzees. (See Chapter L, Section IV., and Chapter V., Sec- 
tions I., II., III., v.). 

From the probate registry at Winchester, Hants, it appears that 
letters of administration were granted on the estate of Thomas 
Linzee of Brickland [or Buckland], Portsea; his estate was apprized 
at £18. 17. 2. Dated, 20 Nov. 1680. Appraisers: Thomas Damo- 
rum, ropemaker (^), and John Bye, gent. (Contributed by Mrs. 
Lewis Linzee).

Linsley; d. 11 Mar. 1727, as Thomas Linzee (R. by M. E. Pescott 
Frost of Portsmouth, England); bur. 13 Mar. 1727, Portsea (Par. 
Reg.), as Thomas Linsey; Thomas Linzee, bachelor, m. 1st Mary 
Monsieur, spinster, both of Portsmouth, 9 May 1681, at the church 
of St. Thomas a Becket (Par. Reg.); dau. of Andrew and Elizabeth 
Mounsher or Munshoir, or Mounsieur of Portsmouth (P. R.); b. 
about 1660, Portsmouth; d. before 1690, leaving only a daughter 
Elizabeth. 

The Mounsher name occurs at Cowes and Bowcomb in the Isle 
of Wight, and at Portsmouth, Southampton and Chichester. By 
the Portsmouth records, John Mounsher was mayor in 1696, 1700, 
and the same name in 1732. 

Thomas Linzee m. 2d Mary Albeck of Portsmouth (R. by 1st Vis- 
count Hood), about 1690; b. about 1670; bur. 7 Mar. 1744, church 
of St. Mary's, Kingston, Portsea (Par. Reg.), as Mary Linzee. 

There was a Thomas Albeck, whose son John was bapt. 10 Apr. 
1710, Portsea (Par. Reg.). 

The identity of Thomas Linzee rests on his first marriage record, 
and on the existence of an old deed, his wife's jointure deed, temp. 
Charles II., in the possession of the late Mr. Robert G. Linzee of 
Romsey, Co. Hants, England, wherein was mentioned his wife Mary 
Mounsher and her mother Elizabeth, a widow, in 1680. In the deed 
he settled on his wife a house at Brickland Q-), Portsea, which is 
important evidence when compared with the record of the adminis- 
tration of the estate of his father Thomas Linzee, the 20 Nov. 1680, 
where the word Brickland occurs. 

In the very heart of Portsmouth stands the stately Parish Church, 
built between 1210 and 1220, by Peter de Rupibus, Bishop of Winton, 
which he consecrated to St. Thomas k Becket, the noted Archbishop 
of Canterbury, who was assassinated at the altar of that cathedral, 
by Reginald Fitz Urse, in 1170, the husband of Beatrix de Limesi. 

In 1628, George Villiers, Duck of Buckingham, the favorite of

James I. and Charles I., was assassinated at Portsmouth, and his 
remains, some say only his heart, lie entombed under the altar of 
Portsmouth Church. The registers of this church contain the mar- 
riage record of Charles II., on parchment, and many items of historic 
interest. 

From the Winchester Probate Registry the following two wills 
were contributed by Mrs. Lewis Linzee.

456 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

I give and Bequeath unto my son James Mounsher the sum of twenty 
pounds of lawful money of England and my Cocoshell cup, tipped 
with silver. I give unto my two grandchildren William Redman ten 
pounds, apiece to lay it into the hands of my son-in-law Richard

appoint my whole executor of this my will and testament in which 
I have now set my hand and seal the twenty third day of December. 
Elizabeth Mounsher. 

Signed and sealed — John Ransford, William Warren, Hen Huish. 

Proved Decemo sexto Sept. 1700. 

The will of Elizabeth Mounsher of Portsmouth, just given, shows 
that her daughter Mary (Mounsher) Linzee had died and left only a 
daughter Elizabeth, otherwise other Linzee grandchildren would have 
been mentioned in her testament. Consequently, the children born 
to Thomas Linsey and Mary his wife, whose baptisms are recorded 
after 1690 in the parish registers of Portsea, must be by a second 
wife also named Mary. It appears, from the pedigree compiled by 
Samuel First Viscount Hood in 1796, that this second wife's name 
was Mary Albeck. 

Viscount Hood described Thomas Linzee (103) as "of Portsmouth 
in the County of Hants. Descended from the Linzee's of Scotland. 

Ob: , buried at Kingston ". Thus from Lord Hood's record, the 

proof is established that the Portsmouth and Kingston, or Portsea, 
Linzee and Linsey families are the same. 

The grant of arms to Viscountess Hood and her father Edward 
Linzee, and the pedigree of 'the Linzee family by Lord Hood, are 
important links in the proofs of the lines of ascent and descent, by 
establishing completely the identification of the descendants of John 
Linzee (105), who are not given, from the descendants of Thomas 
Linzee (106) and Edward Linzee (107), the sons of Thomas 
Linzee and Mary Albeck. 

This grant of arms and pedigree will now be stated.

Anita Homer (Manson) Linzee 
186&- 



the linzee family. 461 

Extract from Private M.S.S. Records Belonging to Mr. 
M. E. P. Frost, Secretary to Admiral Superintendent. 

ITiomas Linzee was Master Ropemaker in Portsmouth Dockyard 
from 28th March 1718 till 11th March 1727 when he died. 

Thomas Linzee (presumed to be the son of the above) was Master 
Ropemaker in Portsmouth Dockyard from 11th June 1736 till 
16th February 1737 when he died. 

Thomas Linzee (103) rose to be the Master Ropemaker in the 
Portsmouth Naval Dockyard, from the 28 Mar. 1718, to the 11 Mar. 

1727, when he died. The salary of the Ma'. Rope maker was only 
£44. 00. 00. (East's Portsmouth, p. 805). Whether he learnt his art 
from his father or from Thomas Damorum, a ropemaker, who was 
appraiser of the elder Thomas' estate, is unknown. It is interesting 
to note that the ancestor of the Linzees superintended the manufac- 
ture of rope and rigging for the British Navy, and that his skill 
received recognition from the government, by electing his son 
Thomas Linzee (106), as one of his successors at Portsmouth, from 
the 11 June 1736 to the 16 Feb. 1737, when he unfortunately died at 
an early age; and by the appointment of his grandson John Linzee 
(109), to the position of Superintendent of the rope walk in the Plym- 
outh Naval Dockyard. Another grandson John Penfold (111-2) 
held the same position at Plymouth, probably succeeding his first 
cousin John Linzee (^). 

Unfortunately there are no records in the Plymouth Dockyard to 
verify these family statements, which were made by John Inman 
Linzee (born 1781), and by Miss Fanny Sophia Penfold (born 
1859). 

It was an ancient custom and privilege for the rope-makers of the 
government dockyard to precede the royal equipage when the King 
visited in state the town of Portsmouth; they had a dress for the 
occasion, carried white staves, the national emblem, and blue sashes 
diagonally across their shoulders. 

An abstract of the will of Thomas Linzee, given in full in Chapter 
IV., will now be stated as it needs some explanations. 

This 28 July 1727, I Thomas Linzee of Portsea, Co. Southampton, 
give my mortgage lands, tenements, to Mary my wife so long as she 
shall continue my widow, and after her marriage or death, to my son 
Thomas Linzee his heirs for ever; all my household goods to Mr. 
John Dining of Portsmouth and Mr. Thomas Melmerby of the Rope- 
walk, in trust, that my wife may have the use, and after her death 
or marriage, said household goods to my daughter Ann Linzee. 
Witnesses: C. Roade, Tho. Longcroft, Jos. Bissel. Proved, — July 

1728, by Maria Linzee. 



(^) Hemp cables were then in vogue, and it was not until after 1815 that 
chain cables were introduced. 



462 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

The parish records of Portsea confirm the deaths of all the daughters 
of Thomas Linzee, except Ann, who married John Walton in 1737, 
and assign to Thomas Linzee the sons John and Edward, but remain 
silent in regards to the baptism of Thomas the only son mentioned 
in his will. Fortunately Lord Hood's pedigree, mentions the sons 
Thomas and Edward, from which it can be confidently assumed that 
the same reason omitted the names of John and Edward from their 
father's will, and that the reason was probably a previous settlement. 
The parish records of Portsmouth clearly show that both John and 
Rebecca Linzee and Edward and Ann Linzee had children born to 
them after the death of their father Thomas, so that they outlived 
their father.

105. JOHN LINZEE, son of Thomas Linzee (103) and 2d wife 
Mary Albeck; bapt. 27 Jan. 1694, Church of St. Mary's, Kingston, 
Portsea, Hants, England (Par. Reg.), as John son of Thomas Linsey 

and Mary his wife; d. ; John Linzee of Portsmouth, tallow 

chandler, m. 1st with Rebecca Goven, Spinster, lie, 29 Mar. 1716 
(Reg. of Bishop of Winchester, Harleian Soc. Pub., 1893); prob. 
dau. of John Goven of Portsmouth, a mariner, as a Peter Adams of 
Portsmouth, baker, and Judith Goven of same, spinster, had m. 
int. lie. 27 Feb. 1716, when John Goven of Portsmouth, mariner, 
was bondsman; b. about 1696; and prob. bur, 30 Aug. 1753, Portsea 
(Par. Reg.), as Rebecca Linzee. 

No will or administration of the estate of this John Linzee has 
been found; his last child recorded to him at Portsmouth was bap- 
tized there in 1730. Perhaps he preceded his son John Linzee (109), 
and grandson John Penfold (111-2), by settling in Devonshire, but 
no proof of his presence there can be discerned in parish registers or 
probate registries. He may have gone to London with Edward 
Linzee (110). See Chapter VIL 

The descendants of Captain John Linzee (118) have always known 
from his Bible records that he was the only surviving son of John 
Linzee (109) and wife Rose of Plymouth, Devon, England. The 
original Bible is lost, but all the copies agree, and in none of them is 
John Linzee (109) called the brother of Edward Linzee (107), the 
Mayor of Portsmouth, England; this erroneous statement can only 
be found in the hand writing of Miss Maria Linzee Fitch, and the 
Heraldic Journal of January 1868, p. 39, where John Linzee (109) is 
described as the younger brother of Edward Linzee (107); the copy 
by Col. Thomas C. Amory, undoubtedly influenced by the records 
of Miss Fitch and the Heraldic Journal, also contains the unfortunate 
error. (See Chapter VI.). 

It is now proved from the parish register of the Church of St. 
Thomas a Becket at Portsmouth, England, that the father of Captain 
John Linzee (118), namely John Linzee (109), who was born 23 Sept. 
1717 (Bible R.), was baptized there the 6 Oct. 1717 as John the son 
of John and Rebecca Linzee ; consequently he cannot be the younger 
brother of Edward Linzee (107), since by the pedigree of Samuel 1st 
Viscount Hood compiled in 1796, it appears that the said Edward 
was the son of Thomas Linzee and Mary Albeck, and his Lordship's 
statement is confirmed by the parish register of the Church of St. 



464 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

Mary's, Kingston, Portsea, where Edward the son of Thomas Linzee 
and Mary his wife was baptized the 3 June 1699. 

It has also been a tradition among the descendants of Captain 
John Linzee (118), that he was descended from a John Linzee a 
brother of Edward Linzee (107); therefore if this tradition is true, 
and there is no reason to doubt it, it must go back one generation 
of John Linzee (109), to his father John Linzee (105) who married 
Rebecca Goven, and this conjecture becomes a certainty when the 
baptism of John the son of Thomas Linsey and Mary his wife occurred 
the 27 Jan. 1694 in the parish register of Portsea, who thus becomes 
John an elder brother of Edward Linzee (107); but this interpreta- 
tion is not supported by Viscount Hood's pedigree, where only two 
sons Thomas and Edward are mentioned. 

It will now be necessary to prove that Viscount Hood's pedigree 
must not be accepted as final in determining the number of sons in 
the family of Thomas Linzee and Mary Albeck. 

The will of Edward Linzee (110) of Holborn, London, was made in 
1768 and mentioned his two minor sons Richard and Edward and 
their guardians his uncle Edward Linzee (107) of Portsmouth, apothe- 
cary, and Edward Linzee the younger of the same place, surgeon. 
Now the said Edward Linzee of Holborn cannot be the son of Thomas 
Linzee (106), an elder brother of Edward Linzee (107), for two reasons. 
First, — he failed to make his presumed mother Sarah (Newnham) 
Linzee or his sisters the guardians of his minor sons, the said ladies 
being alive and residing at Portsmouth in 1768; and second, — be- 
cause his presumed mother Sarah and sister Sarah, who made their 
wills respectively in 1775 and 1783, failed to mention the sons of 
Edward Linzee of Holborn who were both ahve in 1783. Therefore 
Thomas Linzee (106) and Edward Linzee (107) had another brother 
who was the father of Edward Linzee of Holborn, and the parish 
records of Portsea prove his name was John. 

Furthermore there is good reason to believe that Edward Linzee 
(110) was the son of John Linzee (105), as an Edward Linzee was 
servant to Lieutenant, afterwards Captain John Linzee (118) on the 
Romney in 1761, and that this youth was later the Lieutenant Edward 
Linzee of Portsea who made his will the 6 Dec. 1791 in which he 
bequeathed half his property to his cousin Susannah Shea, a widow. 
Surely it is more than a coincidence that Captain John Linzee (118) 
had a sister the wife of Captain Shea of the Royal Army, and his 
son Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee (120) had a grandson Charles Shea 
Hunt, named without doubt after the Shea family. 

The above statement was carefully discussed by the author with 
his late father John Wilham Linzee (135) who was born 23 June 1821.

Children of John Linzee (105) and Rebecca Goven, 

109. I. John, b. 23 Sept. 1717, in England (Record left by Capt. John 

Linzee (118) in America, in his family Bible); bapt. 6 Oct. 1717, 

Church of St. Thomas k Becket, Portsmouth (Par. Reg.), as 

John son of John and Rebecca Linzee. 
II. Thomas, bapt. 22 Mar. 1719, Portsmouth (Par. Reg.), as Thomas 

son of John and Rebbecca Linzee; d. young. 

Note: There appears to be a break at Portsmouth in the bap- 
tisms of the children of John and Rebecca Linzee between the 
years 1719-28, and in going to the Portsea parish register for chil- 
dren born within this interval, the existence of another contempo- 
rary John Linzee at Portsea is disclosed, whose ancestry and 
descendants remain unidentified. Therefore it is best, in the 
absence of proof, not to include any of the children baptized at 
Portsea under John Linzee (105) (^). 

110. III. Edward, b. about 1726; probably the son of John and Rebecca 

Linzee; cannot be the son of Thomas Linzee (106); proved as 
the nephew of Edward Linzee (107). 
IV. Thomas, bapt. 5 Feb. 1728, Portsmouth (Par. Reg.), as Thomas 
son of John and Rebecca Linzee; bur. 13 Mar. 1729, Portsmouth 
(Par. Reg.), as Thomas son of John Linzee. 

111. V. Mary, bapt. 25 Jan. 1730, Portsmouth (Par. Reg.), as Mary dau. 

of John and Rebecca Linzee. 



106. THOMAS LINZEE, son of Thomas Linzee (103) and 2d 
wife Mary Albeck; b. about 1695-6, Portsea, Hants, England; d. 
16 Feb. 1737, Portsmouth, Hants (R. by M. E. Pescott Frost); 
bur. 18 Feb. 1736-7, St. Mary's Church, Kingston, Portsea (Par. 
Reg.), as Mr. Thomas Linzee; Thomas Linzee m. Sarah Newnham, 
dau. of Robert Newnham of Portsmouth (R, by 1st Viscount Hood), 
about 1720; prob. dau. of Robert and Susannah (Tippits) Newnham 
of Portsmouth (Par. Reg.); b. about 1700, Isle of Wight, Hants; 

d. 1775-6, Portsmouth (P. R.); bur. 6 Jan. 1776, St. Mary's 

Church, Kingston, Portsea (Par. Reg.), as Sarah Linzee. 

The records of the election of Burgesses to the corporation of 
Portsmouth disclosed that Thomas Linzee, Master Ropemaker at the 
Dockyard, was elected a Burgess the 29 Sept. 1731. 

Thomas Linzee (presumed to be the son of Thomas Linzee), was 
Master Ropemaker in Portsmouth Dockyard from 11th June 1736 
till 16th Feb. 1737, when he died (R. by M. E. Pescott Frost). This 
record does not agree with the one just above, showing that he was 
the Master Ropemaker in 1731. 

No probate of the estate of Thomas Linzee (106) has been found, 
neither is the history of his family known between his death in 1736-7 
and the death of his wife in 1775-6. Her will, made in 1775, is given 
in full in Chapter IV., and shows that she left only daughters; simi-

Edw. Linzey, Esq., father of that Corporation, and of Capt. Linzee

Captain Linzee of the Royal Navy (The General Evening Post, 
London, From Thursday May 16 to Saturday May 18, 1782. No. 
7527). Buried 21 May 1782, Church of St. Thomas a Becket, Ports- 
mouth (Par. Reg.), as Edward Linzee (See also Musgrave's Obitu- 
aries) ; interred in Portsmouth Church. 

Edward Linzee m. Anne Newnham, dau. of Robert of Portsmouth, 
and of the family of Newnham of the Isle of Wight (R. by 1st Vis- 
count Hood), about 1724; a Robert Newnham m. (he.) Susannah 
Tippits, 11 Mar. 1697, Church of St. Thomas a Becket (Par. Reg.); 
Anne Newnham was b. about 1705, in the Isle of Wight (R. by 1st 
Viscount Hood). From Viscount Hood's pedigree, Edward Linzee 
d. 16 May 1782, aged 88 y., and his wife Anne Linzee d. — Sept. 
1767, aged 62 y., both bur. at Portsmouth; Ann Linzee was bur. 29 
Sept. 1767, Church of St. Thomas k Becket, Portsmouth (Par. Reg.). 
A Robert Newnham, Surgeon, was a burgess of Portsmouth, 9 June 
1710, and the 29 Sept. 1718. 

The Newnhams were famiUes of importance residing for centuries 
in the Isle of Wight; they held land as tenants from the distinguished 
family of the De Lisles of Gatcombe, in the parishes of Chale, Niton, 
and Whitewell. The names Newman, Newnam and Numan are iden- 
tical with Newnham. The earliest mention of this name was in 1384, 
when WilUam Newenham was on a list of jurors at Newport, Isle of 
Wight, in answer to a writ concerning Stenbury, a manor in White- 
well. (For an extensive article on the Newnham Family, by John L. 
Whitehead, see Notes and Queries, 1914, IX: 90). 

A Thomas Newnham was of East Standen in An-eton, Isle of Wight, 
in 1701, and it is this fact which has stood in the way of making 
Edward Linzee (107), a descendant of Thomas Linze (57) of Arreton. 
Edward Linzee's farm, called in his will East Standen Farm lying in 
Arreton might have descended to him from his Linzee ancestors, 
unless he acquired it by purchase or from his wife Anne Newnham.

Letter from John Howard, Town Clerk's Office of Ports- 
mouth, Hants, England, to John W. Linzee, Esq. 

September 10, 1878. 
Sir: — 

On my return home to day I found your note of the 29 ulto. 

There is no record among the Corporation Books that I can find 
respecting the Edward Linzee you refer to beyond the entries of his 
election as mayor in 1745, 1753, 1758, 1761, 1766, 1771, 1777, 1779, 
1780. I find among private papers of my father, who was a 
prominent member of the old Corporation the following note: — 

" 1740. Edward Linzee of Portsmouth, apothecary, married Anne 
one of the daughters and Coheiresses of Richard (') Newnham and 
Thomas Linzee married Sarah the other daughter ". 

When the Corporation in 1778 was reduced by deaths and judgment 
of Ouster to the number of four, Edward Linzee was one of those 
remaining few. Dying in 1782, he left Edward Linzee his eldest son 
and Heir at Law and residuary legatee, who died in or soon after 
1793, leaving his brother Robert Linzee of Wickham his heir and also 
residuary legatee (^). 

The will of Edward Linzee (the first named), was dated 23 Feb. 
1782, that of the son Edward, 19 Feb. 1783. 

The first Edward Linzee was buried in Portsmouth Church 21 May, 
1782. 

I regret that I am unable to give you any further information than 
the above, to which you are welcome if of any service to you. 

I am faithfully yours 

John Howard.

(Proceedings were taken in the King's Bench at the instance of 
Aldermen Carter, Thomas White, and WilHam White against the 
election of Alderman Monday to the Mayoralty; on the 27''' January 
1777 Lord Mansfield delivered the Judgment of the Court declaring 
the election of Thomas Monday void, the said Thomas Monday not 
having been elected an Alderman by a majority of the Aldermen. 

On the 12*'' February 1777, a Mandamus from the Court of King's 
Bench was issued, calling upon Aldermen to elect a Mayor. Only 
six Aldermen were at the time on the Roll. Philip Varlo was elected 
Mayor on March 6*''.

came to Portsmouth and went diiectly to the Dock Yard; and on 
Sunday the 3^"^ their Majesties came from the Dock Yard to the 
Governour's House and went to Chapel and heard Divine Service 
and Sermon, and afterwards had a Levee at the Governour's House 
where the Mayor, Recorder, Aldermen and Burgesses in their For- 
malities were introduced to the King, and the Recorder presented an 
address to His Majesty. 

They were afterwards introduced to the Queen, and the Recorder 
also presented an address to Her Majesty. 

They were all graciously received by their Majesties, and had the 
honour of kissing their Hands. 

On Monday the 4*'' the King and Queen went to Spithead and were 
saluted several times by the whole fleet; Their Majesties daily took 
a view of the Dock Yard, Town Garrison, and Fortifications, and on 
friday the 8*'* went again to Spithead and were saluted as before. 
On Saturday the 9*'' they came from the Commissioners House in 
the Dock Yard where they had laid during their stay, and about 
half an hour after eight that morning passed through the Town 
amidst the acclamations of a vast concourse of People being saluted 
by the whole Garrison as they had been at their first Entry into the 
Town: with all which their Majesties seemed highly pleased.

(p. 254) Return of Mandamus. 

I John Carter, Esquire, named in the Writ hereunto annexed do 
most humbly certify and return to our most Serene Sovereign Lord 
the King at Westminster at the time in the said Writ for that purpose 
mentioned That the within mentioned Borough of Portsmouth in the 
County of Southampton is an antient Borough And that the Lord 
Charles the First late King of England by his Letters Patent sealed 
with his Great Seal of England bearing date at Westminster the 
Seventeenth day of November in the third year of his reign . . . 
And I do further most humbly certify to our most Serene Sovereign 
Lord the King That on the Monday Sevennight before the Feast of 
Saint Michael the Archangel which was in the year of our Lord One 
Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy Seven, being the day ap- 
pointed by the said Letters Patent of the said late King Charles the

named Edward Linzee then an Alderman of the said Borough was 
duly elected Mayor of the said Borough, and afterwards to wit on the 
Twenty Ninth day of September in the same Year was duly sworn 
into the office of Mayor of the said Borough before Phihp Varlo 
Esquire then Mayor of the said Borough and that no other legal 
Alderman of the said Borough hath since been duly elected and 
sworn Mayor of the said Borough of Portsmouth And I do further 
most humbly certify to our said most Serene Sovereign Lord the 
present King That long before the said Election of the said Edward 
Linzee to the said Office of Mayor of the said Borough of Portsmouth, 
and since that time two Burgesses of the said Borough of Portsmouth 
have been elected and sent, and have used and been accustomed to 
be and of right ought to have been elected and sent, and still are and 
of right ought to be elected and sent to serve as Burgesses for the 
said Borough of Portsmouth in the Parliament of this Kingdom 
And that during all the time last aforesaid it hath belonged and still 
doth belong to the Mayor of the said Borough of Portsmouth for 
the time being to preside at the Election and to make Return of 
such Burgesses to serve in Parliament as aforesaid And for these 
causes I the said John Carter cannot neither ought I to swear and

the said Borough of Portsmouth Nor can I neither ought I to admin- 
ister to the said Edward Linzee the Oath or Oaths in that case usually

John Carter. 

Mr. Alderman Godwin relinquished the office of Mayor the 29*'* of 
May 1780, and there was no other Mayor chosen until Tuesday the 
19^^ of September following. 

(On the 19*^ September Alderman Linzee was sworn Mayor for 
the remainder of the year, and on the same day Alderman Godwin 
was elected Mayor for the ensuing year.) 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 481 

Mr. Linzee, before Mr. Godwin was sworn Mayor on the 29*'' Sep- 
tember 1781, nominated his Son Captain Robert Linzee to be his 
Peremptory Burgess, but the Aldermen present refused to give their 
consent to it. (^) 

Edward Linzee was a surgeon and apothecary, a profession enabling 
him to become well known and trusted in the community. His name 
first appeared in politics as a Burgess of Portsmouth in 1728, but it 
was not until 1744 that he became an Alderman. Immediately 
afterwards in 1745 he was elected Mayor of that important borough, 
and was again accorded that honour on eight other occasions, 
the last occurring in 1780, when he was over fourscore years of 
age. 

It is thus seen that Edward Linzee was a very important, promi- 
nent, and influential citizen of Portsmouth; consequently it is not 
surprising that the political control wielded by him and his faithful 
colleague Philip Varloe should have aroused an animated and organ- 
ized minority opposition in the Portsmouth City Government, which 
first manifested its power in 1774. 

" Judgment of ouster was obtained in the Court of King's Bench 
which left the Portsmouth Corporation without a Mayor or 
Recorder, and only four Aldermen remained in office, Mr. Carter 
Senr., Mr. White, Mr. Varloe and Mr. Linzee; the two former be- 
longed to the independent interest, and the two latter represented 
that of government." 

" No one was legally chosen to be Mayor for nine years, everyone 
so elected being declared illegal and was ousted. At the end of 
which time Mr. Varloe and Mr. Linzee died and left the Corporate 
House in the hands of the independent members who retained the 
ascendancy until 1835."

To Wisdom they're assign'd;

(^) This sad political struggle, which had been carried on for a number of 
years with the bitterest acrimony on both sides, at the cost of many thousand 
pounds, was only ended at the death of Alderman Edward Linzee in 1782; 
by which the Whig party became supreme, and remained in ascendancy 
until the passing of the Municipal Reform Act in 1835.

Gussage, — a chapelry in Hadley parish, Dorsetshire. Contains an 
early English 13th century Chapel, the chapelry is called Gussage 
St. Andrew.

In conversation with my father John Inman Linzee, I distinctly 
remember him to say that his grandfather, John Linzee (109), was 
employed in the Plymouth Dockyards, superintending the making of 
rope for the British Navy (Statement by John William Linzee, born 
1821). Unfortunately the above statement cannot be verified, as 
there are no records of the personnel of that dockyard during the 
period covering the years 1750 to 1787 (Letter of R. F. Franklin, 
Secretary, Admiral Superintendent's Office, H. M. Dockyard, 
Devonport), 

Know all men by these presents that M'. John Linzee of Plymouth 
in the County of Devon, Esq'., Ann Grant of Berry Pomery in the 
said County widow, and Mary Hollett of Totnes in the said County

(I: 66) In July of 1793, Samuel Lord Hood was in command of 
the Mediterranean fleet off Toulon in the south of France, his flag 
was on the Victory of 100 guns, with Rear Admiral Sir H. Parker 
on board. Captain Robert Linzee joined this fleet in Aug. in com- 
mand of the Alcide of 74 guns, and was made a Commodore in 
Sept. 1793. Horatio Nelson was also present as Captain of the 
Agamemnon.

(I: 85) Commodore Robert Linzee of the Alcidc was sent by Lord 
Hood in command of a squadron of three line of battle ships and two 
frigates to aid the insurgents in Corsica. His force consisted of: 
Battle Ships. 

Alcide, 74 guns Commodore Robert Linzee, Captain John 

Woodley. 
Courageux, 74 guns . . . Captain John Matthews. 

Ardent, 64 guns Capt Robert Manners Sutton.

Nemesis, 28 guns Captain Lord Amelius Beauclerk. 

Commodore Linzee sailed from Toulon to Villa Franca, thence to 
Calvi and San Florenzo. The force was, however, too small to be 
of much service to the insurgents under General Paoli. 

(1: 163) On the 7 Feb. 1794, Lieutenant-General Dundas landed 
with troops in the Gulf of St. Florenzo, to the westward of Martello, 
but this force was beaten off, as the insurgents did not co-operate by 
storming the posts on shore. Lord Hood and Nelson, who had fol- 
lowed Linzee, were also present. (See Southey's Life of Nelson). 

(I: 193) On the 10 Nov. 1794, a mutiny broke out on the Windsor 
Castle of 98 guns. Captain William Shield, bearing the flag of Rear

My dear Lord : — 

You will not be surprised that the Fortitude & Juno made so little 
Impression upon the Tower of Martello, when you are told that the 



500 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

walls are of iniinenso thickness. The Parapet Wall is lined in the 
inside with Basse Junk filled up with sand, five feet in thickness. 
The Battery now acting against it consisting of 1 Eighteen Pounder 
two 9 Pounders & one 12 Pounder Carronade gas reduc'd the Parapet 
Wall to a Rubbish & is only hanging together by the Junk which is 
now on fire all round it. There arc but two Guns (I believe) in the 
Tower one allready dismounted, the other will be soon. The men 
still remain in the Tower, now & then firing musquets, a Soldier is 
just brought on Board wounded by one. A Plan is forming for 
storming of it, & I hope we shall be in Possession of it before night. 
Your Despatches for the Generals Dundas & Peoli are sent off to 
them, the former went on shore this morning to meet the latter 
General to consult with him. 

I am my dear Lord, your ever faithful & affectionate.

P.S. Another eighteen Pounder will be mounted in less than an 
Hour. 



Letter from Commodore Robert Linzee to Admiral Lord Hood. 

Alcide 11th. Feby. 1794. 
My Dear Lord : — 

When I wrote to your Lordship yesterday, acquainting you with 
the surrender of Martello Tower, I was unacquainted with the number 
of men in it, since which I understand there were an Ensign & thirty 
two Privates, two of which are very dangerously wounded. I must 
refer it to your Lordships consideration whether it would not be best 
to send the Prisioners to the ships that are now cruizing off. When 
I have a return of the Ordinance & stores contained in the Tower I 
will transmit it to you. I believe there was 2 Eighteen Pounders & 
one six, one of the Eighteen is Disabled & the six Pounder spik'd up. 
Capt. Woodly mentioned me that he thought a Mortar Boat would 
be useful. I think it will not be prudent to send anything to lay in 
the Bay as their shot reaches quite across it. The General is not 
yet returned. 

I am, my Dear Lord, your ever faithful & affectionate. 

Robt. Linzee. 



Victory Gulf of Fiorenza Feby 16 1794 
Sir 

The late Westerley wind forced me to take shelter under Cape 
Corse, and upon its ceasing it became calm with a heavy western 
swell which carried me as far to Leward as the Gorgona. 
 I have picked up a vessel that was under convoy of L'Utine with 




Mary Annette (Braund) Linzee 
1857- 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 501 

a very valuable cargo of useful articles which Mr. Drake ordered to 
be purchased for the use of the Army and Navy at my request — 
Doctor Robertson with Lieut Duncan of the Artillery a Clerk of 
Mr. Eckine's etc were in L'Utine and are now on board the St. George, 
as I had occasion to send Capt Macnamara with orders to the Ardent 
oflF Villa Franca. 

I think it highly probable that part of the troops have been with- 
drawn from Bastia to St Fiorenza Tornelli and the works above it, 
and have therefore submitted to the General whether it would not be 
advisable to send a few ships with some transports off Bastia in 
order to distract the enemy & divide its force. — The French are 
very much in want of provissions and unless they receive very con- 
siderable succour soon (of which they have very little prospect) 
cannot long hold out. Capt Nelson has destroyed 500 tons of wine 
and burnt ten vessels upon Cape Corse, and taken two boats with 
a few sacks of Flour & a bag of dollars in each — I am all impatience 
to hear from you. and am

You are hereby required and directed to hoist your Flag on board

Memo 

The Commander in Chief intends to attack the enemy's ships as 
they are now anchored under the following arrangements 

The Terrible and Berwick to attack the battery on the point 
Garoupe to the Eastward to which they are to anchor as near as 
possible. 

The Britannia and St. George will follow as close as convenient & 
attack the Easternmost Line of battle Ship. 

The Windsor Castle & Alcide are at the same time to attack the 
second line of battle ships from the Eastward. 

The Victory and Princess Royal the third ship from the Eastward. 

The Bedford and Egmont the fourth ship. 

And the Captain and Fortitude the fifth ship. 

These being subdued no resistance can possibly be made by the 
remaining two. 

The respective Captains of the Fleet are to be very attentive to 
keep their ships in that situation as will best answer for their more 
speedy executing the service allotted to each. 

The preparatory signal will be made previous to the signal for 
attack and when the latter is shown the ships are to move as rap- 
idly as possible with due attention to order, and for the support 
of each other, the ships are to anchor with good springs upon their 
cables. 

Care is to be taken in placing the ships so as that they cannot 
annoy their friends, the Junior Officers to lead, The Illustrious and

you will proceed immediately with the convoy to Gibraltar without

not be settled, in which case the Agamemnon will join you there.

I should have complied with the directions in your letter of the

account of the behaviour of WilHam Pixley her Master.

THE LINZEE FAMILY. 517 

Application having been made to the Naval store keeper for slops 
and beds for the seamen and Invahds burnt out in the Caira, who 
were almost naked and laying on the decks ever since the loss of that 
ship, he gave directions to the Master of the Nelly to supply them, 
who did so without any seeming reluctance, the day after their de- 
hvery I received an appHcation from the store keeper to send the 
Nelly to Ajaccio under convoy of the Boston, to which I acqueised, 
but the Master would not proceed alledging that he had complicated 
his Charter Party by bringing the stores to Corsica, and that an 
additional allowance should be paid by Govermnent for carrying the 
stores from hence to Ajaccio, otherwise he would not stir. I sent 
for him and acquainted him that the port of Ajaccio was the only 
place where his cargo could be received & that if an additional allow- 
ance of freight was proper Government would of course pay it, but 
he still refused to go and persisted so to do, notwithstanding I gave 
him a written order to proceed thither. 

The Store keeper seeing that the Master of the Nelly would not 
go from hence to Ajaccio, applied to me for the stores to be taken 
out of her, and put into one of the transports to prevent the expense 
of demurrage on the former, and Lieutenant Mansfield the Agent 
having reported that the Brig Fame could take them, I gave imme- 
diate directions for the cargo of the Nelly to be discharged into her; 
the whole will be unladen in a few days and she will proceed to Ajaccio 
with the first convoy. 

Inclosed I transmit the application I received from the store keeper, 
and also an attested copy of the order I gave to the Master of the 
Nelly to proceed with his cargo to Ajaccio and have the honor to be

Dear Sir, 

I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of Sept. l?*** to 
the Postmaster, and to say that I (the Postmaster's wife) have found 
in the churchyard the gravestone for which you enquire. It is a 
large flat stone surrounded by railings between four and five feet in 
height. The inscription on it, in very plain lettering, is as follows: — 

Robert Linzee Esq'. 

Admiral in the Royal Navy 

Died the 4'^ of October 1804 
Aged 64 years. 

This is the only name on the stone, but there is space for at least 
three more. 

I could not find any other stone bearing the name of Linzee nor of 
Atkins; but there are four similar gravestones surrounded by railings 
in a line with the one mentioned, but the inscriptions on them are 
illegible. 

I am sorry I cannot give you any information regarding any de- 
scendants. The names are quite unknown to my husband who is 
a native of Wickham and has lived here for nearly 60 years. 

Yours truly

(Dictionary of English National Biography, under Admiral, Vis- 
count, Samuel Hood, Vol. IX) Rear Admiral Robert Linzee, who 
had a command under him [Samuel Hood] in the Mediterranean, 
was his wife's brother. John Linzee, apparently another brother, 
served with him in the Vestal, and afterwards as a lieutenant in the 
Romney, with Edward Linzee as his servant; he became a captain 
in 1777. 

The above statement is correct in regard to Admiral Robert Linzee, 
but in error in respect to John Linzee. As has been shown, John 
Linzee (109), the father of John Linzee (118) of the Vestal aforesaid, 
was first cousin to Admiral Robert Linzee aforesaid, and son of another 
John Linzee (105) the elder brother of Edward Linzee (107), mayor 
of Portsmouth, England, the said Edward being the father of Su- 
sannah Linzee wife of Viscount, Admiral, Samuel Hood. 

The picture of Captain John Linzee shows the eyes as light brown; 
dark blue coat; gold braid; white waistcoat; white grey hair; sallow 
complexion; red telescope with brass eyepiece; dark blue, and red 
sunset; rocks brown. Artist, — Sir George Chalmers. 

The picture of his wife Susannah (Inman) Linzee shows the eyes 
as blue; hght brown hair, good complexion, but not pink; dress in 
dark ecru, deep grey, and warm shadows, with trimmings in grey; 
background of a cool tone.

John Linzee was in Boston, Mass., in Mar. 1769, in the Halifax, 
as 2nd Lieutenant, with his servant Edward Linzee. Edward Linzee 
was still servant to Capt. Lohn Linzee in 1770. 

John Linzee was exchanged from the Romney to the Beaver, re- 
ceiving his appointment by order of Commodore Samuel Hood. 
Edward Linzee requested to be discharged from the Romney to the 
Beaver. 

Thomas Linzee was servant to Capt. John Linzee in 1771. 

Capt. John Linzee was in Boston, with S. H. Linzee, his son, as 
captain's servant, and captain's senior clerk, from 22 Oct. 1774 to 
30 Apr. 1776. 

John Linzee was Post Captain, 16 Feb. 1777. 

The identity of Thomas Linzee, servant to Capt. John Linzee in 
1771, has not been established, he might be, but would appear too 
young to be the Thomas, probably a Linzee, mentioned by Commo- 
dore Samuel Hood in his letter to John Rowe dated 16 Mar. 1772, 
as the last Thomas, then residing at Portsmouth, must have been at 
least of age in 1772. It is possible that Capt. John Linzee's younger 
brother Thomas, one of the twins, did not die young, as has been 
recorded, or that he had another brother Thomas born after the death 
of the twins, but this is all contrary to family tradition and family 
records. Yet it must not be forgotten that the family tradition 
might refer to conditions existing long after the probable death of 
Thomas.

History and Antiquities of Boston, Mass., by 
Samuel G. Drake, etc. 

(pp. 733-48) On the night of the 8 July 1768, the sloop Liberty 
with its cargo of Molasses, was in the custody of two officers of the 
customs for violation of the law of entry. About thirty men con- 
fined the officers and carried off the molasses, but the Selectmen im- 
mediately caused it to be restored, which demonstrated that they 
and not the King's officers had authority over the people. This inci- 
dent was the immediate cause for the despatch of two Irish regiments, 
and other troops from Halifax to Boston, which arrived at Nantasket 
on the 28 Sept, and consisted of the 14th regiment under Liuetenant- 
Colonel William Dalrymple, and the 29th regiment under Lieutenant- 
Colonel Maurice Carr, each of about 500 men. These were soon

joined by a part of the 59th under Captain Wilson, and a company 
of the Train of Artillery with two field pieces. 

On the 30th. September, the vessels of war, amounting now to 
about twelve, sailed into the harbor, and were ranged in a formidable 
manner about the north-east part of the Town, and came to anchor. 
The ships were: 1, the Beaver, 14 guns; 2, the Senegal, 14; 3, the 
Martin, 10; 4, the Glasgow, 20; 5, Mermaid, 28; 6, Romney, 50; 
7, Launaston, 40; 8, Bonetta, 10; and others. 

Deacon Tudor's diary describes the landing of the troops as follows : 
" At about 1 O'clock Satterdayall the Troops Landed under cover 
of the Cannon of the Ships of War. The troops drew up in King 
Street and marched off in short time into the Conmion with Muskets 
charged. Bayonets fixed (perhaps Expecting to have met with re- 
sestance as the Soldiers afterwards told the inhabitants) their Colours 
flying, Drums beating & museck playing. In short they made a 
gallant appearance, makeing with the train of Artillery about 800 
Men." 

The red uniforms of the soldiers gave rise to a pun by the Rev. 
Mather Byles, who said that the request of the people for a redress 
of grievances had been returned red-dressed from England. 

On the 5 Sept. 1769, James Otis was attacked in the British Coffee 
House on King Street by Captain John Robinson, who was one of 
the Commissioners of the Customs, and his friends. John Gridley 
came to the assistance of Otis, and both were roughly handled. This 
incident further embittered the feeUngs of the people of Boston 
caused by the arrival of the troops. 

Many small affrays followed between the citizens of Boston and the 
British soldiers, particularly the Ropewalk riot, which should have 
informed the British authorities that the withdrawal of the troops 
would alone appease the people, but these warnings went unheeded 
until after the Boston Massacre of the 5 Mar. 1770, when the 29th 
regiment under the command of Captain Preston fired on the people. 

The morning after the slaughter, the leading citizens held a Town- 
meeting at Faneui Hall, and appointed a conamittee of fifteen which 
repaired to the Old State House and demanded of Lieutenant-Gov- 
ernor Hutchinson the removal of the troops. He claimed to have no 
power to do so. The committee reported his answer to the meeting, 
it was considered unsatisfactory, when seven of the original delega- 
tion, consisting of the patriots Samuel Adams, John Hancock, William 
MoUneaux, William Phillips, Joseph Warren, Joshua Henshaw and 
Samuel Pemberton, again repaired to the Council Chamber and 
demanded the withdrawal of all the troops. Governor Hutchinson 
consulted Colonel Dalrymple and proposed the removal of one 
regiment. 

Sternly, Adams, who headed the committee, replied : 



526 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

" If the Lieutenant Governor or Colonel Dalrymple, or both to- 
gether, have authority to remove one regiment, they have authority 
to remove two; and nothing short of the total evacuation of the 
Town by all the regular troops will satisfy the pubUc mind, and 
preserve the peace of the province ". At the same time he pointed 
to the meeting composed of over three thousand people. This had 
the desired effect, and the troops were withdrawn, as promised, 
fourteen days afterwards. (Drake's Hist, and Ant. of Boston, 
Mass., pp. 777-84). 

The Rev. Mather Byles, a Tory and wit, asked Adams why he 
opposed the rule of one tyrant three thousand miles away, and sub- 
mitted to the will of three thousand tyrants only one mile away.

MERCHANT. EdITED BY AnNE RoWE CUNNINGHAM. 

Diary — 1769. 

July 5. I waited on Commodore Hood to Visit the Schools in 

Boston & dined with the Select Men Overseers of the Poor, . A 

very genteel Entertainment. 

July 8. When I came home I found Capt. Robt. Lyndsay at 
Our Hous being arrivd on the Vipers Sloop of Warr from No. Caro- 
lina, his brother Capt. John Lyndsay (& others. ).(0 



(}) This record in John Rowe's diary must not be allowed to pass without 
explanation : 

In a paper written by Mr. Edward Lillie Pierce for the Massachusetts 
Historical Society, on the Diary of John Rowe, Mr. Pierce noted that, 
" she ", (Sucky Inman), " married Sept. 1, 1772, at the age of eighteen, 
Captain John Linzee, then commanding the British warship " Beaver ", 
brother of Captain, afterward Rear-Admiral, Robert Linzee, and also of 
Admiral Samuel Hood's wife. He also quoted " The Dictionary of National 
(English) Biography ", under " Samuel Hood, Admiral Viscount ". He 
further said: " It should be mentioned, however, that the traditions of Cap- 
tain John Linzee's family do not agree with the statement of Rowe's Diary 
that he was the brother of Admiral Robert Linzee ". 

The author of this book has shown the true ancestry of Captain John 
Linzee, absolutely proved back to John Linzee who married Rebecca Goven, 
and that the traditions of the family on the ancestry of Captain John Linzee 
have all come true. Yet a few words of explanation are necessary to clear 
up John Rowe's Diary and Mr. Pierce's comments on this point. 

In the first place, John Rowe may have made a mistake when he called 
the two Captains Robert and John Lyndsay, brothers; or, if Robert is the 
brother of John, then Mr. Pierce is in error when he called Capt. Robert 
Lyndsay the brother of Admiral Samuel Hood's wife. Finally, it is known 
from the Admiralty records, that Captain John Linzee did not reach the 
rank of Captain until the 4 Oct. 1770, which was after the entry in Rowe's 
Diary. Hence it is quite possible that Rowe referred to some other Captains 
Robert and John Lyndsay, as the spelling of their names suggest.

People at Lexington. The First Brigade commanded by Lord 
Percy with Two pieces of Artillery set off from this Town this morn- 
ing about Ten of Clock as a Reinforcement which with the Grena- 
diers & Light Infantry made about eighteen hundred men. The 
People in the Country had notice of this movement early in the 
Night. Alarm Guns were fired thro' the Country & Expresses sent 
off to the Different Towns so that very early this morning large num- 
bers from all Parts of the Country were Assembled. A General 
Battle ensued which from what I can learn was Supported with 
Great Spirit on both Sides & continued untill the Kings Troops got 
back to Charlestown which was near Sunset. Numbers are killed

& wounded on Both Sides. Capt Linzee & Capt Collins in two 
Small Armed Vessels were ordered up Charles River to Bring off

The Gaspee Incident. 

In March 1772, His Majesty's sloop of war the Beaver, commanded 
by Captain John Linzee, was stationed off Newport, Rhode Island, 
for the suppression of the clandestine landing of articles subject to 
the payment of duty. His Tender, the armed schooner Gaspee, 
of eight guns and twenty seven men, commanded by Lieutenant 
William Dudingston, patrolled the waters of Narragansett Bay to 
punish breaches of the customs and to end the illicit trade very 
largely engaged in by the inhabitants of those shores. 

On the 9th of June, Dudingston started in pursuit of a New York, 
Newport and Providence packet called the Hannah, commanded, 
strange to say, by a Captain Thomas or Benjamin Lindsey, who re- 
fused to be overhauled and examined when ordered by the Beaver 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 531 

to comply. The Hannah sailed away from Newport and success- 
fully passed a bar off Namquit Point, now Gaspee Point, about 
seven miles below Providence, on to which the pursuing Gaspee was 
firmly stranded owing to her greater draft. 

On his arrival at Providence, Captain Lindsey of the Hannah 
reported what appeared to be a chase to John Brown, a leading 
merchant of that city, who determined on the destruction of the 
Gaspee. Whereupon John and Joseph Brown, Captains Abraham 
Whipple, John B. Hopkins, Benjamin and Samuel Dunn, Colonel 
Ephraim Bowen who left a narrative of these events, John Mawney, 
Benjamin Page, Joseph BuckUn who later shot Dudingston, Tur- 
pin Smith, Captain Joseph Tillinghast and Simeon H. Olney, met 
at James Sabin's Inn and agreed on a course of action. 

They rowed down the bay in eight large long boats about eight 
persons in a boat, being joined by Simeon Potter of Bristol, Doctor 
Weeks of Warwick, a negro boy named Aaron Briggs whom Captain 
Linzee afterwards retained on the Beaver as a witness, refusing to 
surrender him to Governor J. Wanton of Rhode Island, and many 
other leading men whose names do not appear to be known, and 
attacked the Gaspee about two o'clock in the morning, wounded a 
large portion of her company including her commander Dudingston, 
burnt the schooner, and carried the wounded and captured crew, 
who had made little resistance to a superior force, to Providence; 
they landed Dudingston however at Pawtucket as his injury was 
serious. 

This attack on a King's ship was not only violence, but revolution, 
and aroused tremendous indignation in naval and governmental 
circles. Great efforts were made by the British authorities to secure 
the ringleaders who were well known, but no reputable evidence was 
forthcoming to implicate them. The governor of Rhode Island 
hesitated to arrest his own citizens and rather bent his efforts to 
free them from suspicion. The King's government appointed com- 
missioners to examine into the affair, but to no purpose, as no one 
would tell on his neighbour. Large rewards for evidence leading to 
the apprehension and conviction of the guilty persons failed of their 
purpose. Finally, in desperation, the British authorities declared 
they would secure justice by seizing the culprits and trying them in 
England. 

But this last threat and mistaken policy, raised a storm of pro- 
test from Virginia and other colonies who declared they would not 
stand for the trial of citizens of the American colonies in England, 
or any where else, except in colonial courts of law. The general 
state of mind can be seen from the following letter: 



•532 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

GovERxVOR Hutchinson to Samuel Hood Esq. 

Boston, 2d September, 1772. 
Dear Sir : — 

Capt. Linzee can inform you of the state of Rhode Island colony 
better than I can do; so daring an insult, as burning the King's 
schooner, by people who are as well known as any who were concerned 
in this last rebellion, and yet cannot be prosecuted, will certainly 
rouse the British Hon, which has been asleep these four or five years. 
Admiral Montagu says that Lord Sandwich will never leave pur- 
suing the colony, until it is disfranchised. If it is passed over, the 
other colonies will follow the example. . . . 

It is His Majesty's intention . . . that the persons concerned in 
the burning the Gaspee . . . should be brought to England to be 
tried. . . . 

It is interesting to note that the date of the above letter is the day 
Captain John Linzee was married in Boston. The reader is also 
referred to the diary, from the 14-31 Aug., of John Rowe previously 
given, where the arrest of Captain Linzee on the Mulatto affair will 
now be explained. 

The mulatto, Aaron Briggs, by his own testimony claimed to be 
in the company of those who destroyed the Gaspee; he alone con- 
fessed to his share in that plot, and gave the names of some of the 
participants; he was either captured or sought refuge on the Beaver, 
at any rate he was detained by Captain Linzee as an important 
witness for the navy. Governor Wanton had discredited his evi- 
dence by the depositions of other negro fellow servants who claimed 
he was at home on the night of the attack on the Gaspee. He was 
however recognized as a member of the attacking party, by a mem- 
ber of the crew of the Gaspee who was on the Beaver, Wanton 
requested the surrender of Aaron, which Linzee refused, and it was 
probably for this defiance of the civil authority of Rhode Island that 
Captain Linzee was arrested in Boston. 

The Governor of Rhode Island to Captain Linzee of His 

Majesty's ship Beaver. 

Newport, July 16th 1772. 
Sir: — 

Having received information from the Honorable Admiral Mon- 
tagu, that Aaron a mulatto lad, on board His Majesty's ship, the 
Beaver, under your command, has confessed that he was concerned 
in destroying His Majesty's schooner the Gaspee, as she lay aground 
in the county of Kent, within this colony; and as it is highly neces- 
sary that this lad should be examined by the civil authority, con- 
cerning what he knows of this affair. . . .

THE LINZEE FAMILY. 533 

The refusal of Captain Linzee was based on his beUef that Governor 
Wanton was not sincere in his desire to know the truth from Aaron, 
but to intimidate and shake the mulatto's testimony after gaining 
possession of his person. 

Thus in this incident between a Captain John Linzee and a Cap- 
tain Thomas or Benjamin Lindsey, a new controversy was started 
between England and her American Colonies which widened the 
existing breach between them, consohdated the colonies, and led up 
to the struggle for American independence. The State of Rhode 
Island had avenged the Boston Massacre of the 5th of Mar. 1770. 
From this incident, for the first time, the various colonies knew that 
they would stand by each other in any struggle for individual and 
combined political freedom. 

For a full and extremely interesting account of the destruction of 
the Gaspee, from which this abstract is largely taken, the reader is 
referred to the Rhode Island Colonial Records VII: 58-192. The 
following song, recorded on pp. 191-2, was composed by Captain 
Swan of Bristol for the occasion. 

SONG 

'Twas in the reign of George the Third, 

Our pubUc peace was much disturbed 

By ships of war, that came and laid 

Within our ports, to stop our trade. 

Seventeen hundred and seventy-two. 

In Newport harbor lay a crew. 

That played the part of pirates there. 

The sons of freedom could not bear. 

Sometimes they weighed and gave them chase. 

Such actions, sure were very base. 

No honest coaster could pass by 

But what they would let some shot fly; 

And did provoke, to high degree, 

Those true born sons of liberty; 

So that they could not longer bear 

Those sons of Belial staying there. 

But 'twas not long 'fore it fell out, 

That William Dudingston, so stout, 

Commander of the Gaspee tender, 

Which he has reason to remember. 

Because, as people do assert. 

He almost had his just desert; 

Here, on the tenth day of last June, 

Betwixt the hours of twelve and one, 

Did chase the sloop, called the Hannah, 

Of whom, one Lindsay, was commander. 



534 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

They dogged her up Providence Sound, 
And there the rascal got aground. 
The news of it flew that very day, 
That they on Namquit Point did lay. 
That night, about half after ten 
Some Narragansett Indian men, 
Being sixty-four, if I remember, 
Which made the stout coxcomb surrender; 
And what was best of all their tricks. 
They in his breech a ball did fix; 
Then set the men upon the land, 
And burnt her up we understand; 
Which thing provoked the King so high 
He said those men shall surely die; 
So if he could but find them out. 
The hangman he'll employ, no doubt; 
For he's declared, in his passion, 
He'll have them tried a new fashion. 
Now, for to find these people out, 
King George has offered very stout; 
One thousand pounds to find out one 
That wounded Wilham Dudingston. 
One thousand more, he says he'll spare, 
For those who say the sheriffs were; 
One thousand more, there doth remain 
For to find out the leader's name; 
Likewise, five hundred pounds per man 
For any one of all the clan. 
But let him try his utmost skill, 
I'm apt to think he never will 
Find out any of those hearts of Gold, 
Though he should offer fifty fold.

Give me leave by Cap Linzee who I hear is under sailing orders 
to inquire after y° welfare. We rejoice in the general tranquility 
in Eng^. & only wish to see the Scriblers who continue to abuse the 
best of sovereigns brought to condign punishment. Surely the 
servants of the Crown in the plantat. will not think much of their 
treatment if it is not worse than what their master received. In

this Colony this sort of abuse is all that has given me any trouble 
since I received my Comission. 

Cap Linzee can inform you of the state of R. I. Colony better 
than I can. So daring an Insult as burning the Kings Scooner by 
people who are as well known as any who were concerned in the last 
Rebellion and yet cannot be prosecuted will certainly rouse the 
British Lion which has been asleep these 4 or 5 years. Ad. Montagu 
says that L'^ Sandwich will never leave pursuing the Colony until it 
is disfranchised. If it is passed over the other Colonies will follow 
its example. 

Cap Linzee is loaded with law suits As far as the Adm. has ac- 
quainted me with them they appear to be groundless & vexatious. 
Its lucky that they are to be tried in this Col. where we have a set 
of as upright & loyal judges as there are in any Colony upon the 
Continent. 

Close application & a neglect of exercise unnerved me for a few 
weeks in the Summer but by unbending & return to my usual exer- 
cise I thank God I have recovered my former state of health. I am

The Stamp Act passed in England in 1756 caused great indigna- 
tion in the American Colonies; it was repealed in 1766. Other ob- 
noxious taxes were then imposed, and were all repealed in 1770 except 
that on tea. In 1773 a cargo of tea was thrown overboard from a 
ship in Boston harbor by a number of colonists disguised as Indians. 

On the 13th of May 1774, Governor Thomas Gage came to Boston, 
and on the 1st of June the British government proclaimed the Bos- 
ton Port Bill to restrain the New England Colonies. Gage attempted 
to carry out that act of repression in August, by which, henceforth, 
the State Council could only be appointed by the King, and, except 
for the annual town meetings in March and May, these and other 
public assemblies could be arranged for only by the governor's per- 
mission. 

Discontent immediately became general as the principles fought 
for by the colonists for generations were thus swept away. In a 
short time a Provincial Congress was formed to help the colony to 
maintain its rights, the suggestion coming from the house of bur- 
gesses of the colony of Virginia, as an expression of her sympathy 
for her sister colony of Massachusetts. 

On the 8th of April 1775, the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts 
issued orders to secure an army, and invited the assistance of the 
colonies of New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut. 

General Gage had by this time about four thousand British troops 
in and about Boston. To enforce the King's laws, he determined to 
teach the provincials obedience by a high-handed act of confisca- 



536 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

tion. On the 18th of April, he ordered Lieutenant-Colonel Smith to 
tissemblp eight hundred men on Boston Common at night, and with 
Major Pitcairn to cross over the river Charles to Cambridge, thence 
to proceed to Concord and there to seize or destroy the supplies 
collected for the provincial militia. Notification of this raid reached 
the American leaders, and the famous night ride of the patriot Paul 
Revere converted a slumbering community into one resolved on 
resistance and grim determination to fight to the utmost this fla- 
grant attack on their homes and lives. The battles of Lexington 
and Concord followed on the 19th of April 1775, a day to be remem- 
bered by Americans as their birth-day as a nation. 

In these events, Captain John Linzee simply covered the retreat 
of the British troops from Concord along the Charles River to Charles- 
town. 

This sudden and unexpected attack by Gage served to consolidate 
and strengthen the men of Massachusetts in their opposition to mis- 
rule, and the next two months were devoted by them to the raising 
and equipping of an army, and the appointment of Artemas Ward 
as its commander-in-chief. 

On the 15th of June 1775, George Washington was elected General- 
in-chief of all the American or Provincial forces. On the same day 
the Committee of Safety for Massachusetts recommended to the 
Council of War, the advisability of fortifying Bunker's Hill in Charles- 
town, which commanded Boston on the North. And on the next 
day the Provincial Congress, by proclamation, advised the people 
of the political aspects facing them and the consequences arising 
from the attack at Concord and the successful resistance of the 
American militia. 

In the meantime Captain John Linzee, acting without doubt 
under orders, was out foraging for supplies for the army and navy 
as shown by the following records.

Mrs. Bowdoin to the Committee of Safety. 

Dorchester, June 4, 1775. 

Gentlemen: — Mr. Bowdoin has just received the enclosed dep- 
osition and being in a very weak state, desires me to inform you, 
that for some time past, the Falkland, sloop of war, commanded by 
Capt. Linzey, has been cruising about the islands called Elizabeth 
islands, near Martha's Vineyard: that the said sloop's boats have, 
divers times, landed armed men on the said islands, who have abused 
the inhabitants, stove their boats, and by force taken away a con- 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 537 

siderable part of their property, as may more fully appear by the 
said deposition. 

It is humbly apprehended, if about one hundred armed men were 
properly posted on the said islands, they would be a sufficient force 
to defend the inhabitants, and protect their stocks of cattle and sheep, 
which are very considerable, and which have, hitherto, every year, 
furnished divers parts of this colony with fat sheep and cattle for 
provisions, and particularly with a large quantity of wool for our 
home manufactures. 

I beg leave to make this representation, that you may take such 
measures as your wisdom shall dictate; and am, most respectfully, 
in Mr. Bowdoin's behalf, who is part owner of one of said islands, 

Gentlemen, your most obedient humble servant, 

Elizabeth Bowdoin. 
To the honorable Committee of Safety.

Deposition of Elisha Nye. 

May 31, 1775. 
Elisha Nye, innholder, living on one of the Elizabeth islands, com- 
monly called Naushan, and near to Tarpohn Cove, testifieth and 
saith, that some time about the 5th of May, the sloop of war called 
the Falkland, commanded by Capt. Linzey, came into the cove, 
and as soon as the vessel had come to anchor, the captain came on 
shore with his boat's crew, all armed, and came to the house, and 
said unto the deponent, " you need not be scared," upon which, 
he told him it was enough to scare any body to see so many men come 
on shore armed; and the women were all fled, and to where he knew 
not; upon which, Capt. Linzey told him to call them in, for he did 
not mean to hurt any body — upon which promise, I and my family 
were satisfied. Soon after that, the captain asked me to walk with 
him; which he complied with; and in the course of the walk, he 
demanded to know what stock I had, and added, to tell him right, 
for if I did not, he would take all that he met: upon which, I gave 
him the account. Then the captain told me, the deponent, if I sold 
any of them, he would take the remainder by force: upon which, I 
told him, if he were here when they were fit for market, he might 
have them, paying the price I used to have. Soon after, he went to 
Rhode Island, and returned back in a few days; after which, he 
used to pass and repass the island almost every day, mostly in com- 
pany with the doctor of the ship, leaving down the fence repeatedly, 
which let the cattle often mix together, which I told the doctor was 



538 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

a great damage: the doctor's answer was, " then you may put it up 
yourselves, for I will not; " and he often talked in an abusive, in- 
sulting manner, that he, the doctor, would soon take what he wanted, 
without any pay. 

On the 26th instant, a sloop came into the cove, with about twenty 
passengers, men, women, and children, in great distress for pro- 
visions, and made application to me for supplies. Capt. Linzey 
knowing that, his boat having boarded her, sent his boat on shore, 
and forbade my letting them have any. Then I advised them to 
apply to Capt. Linzey, and see if they could not prevail upon him 
to let them have some; accordingly they went; afterwards, the cap- 
tain of the sloop told me, that he absolutely refused them, and said, 
" damn the dog that would let them have any! and if they were not 
gone immediately, he would sink them:" upon which, they set 
sail immediately without any supplies. And further, the deponent 
declareth, that the doctor came on shore, and said, that the cap- 
tain's orders were, that I should go with him, the said doctor, and 
destroy all the boats belonging to the island. I told him I could not 
go upon such business as that; he said he would send me on board 
the ship if I did not go; upon which, I found I must comply, and 
accordingly went with him, and saw him, the doctor, stave three 
boats. 

On the 29th, about eight o'clock, in the evening, he, the said doc- 
tor, came on shore, and told me he had come for my sheep, upon 
which, I told him they were out in the pasture, and I could not get 
them into the pen it being dark, but would fetch them in as early in 
the morning as he pleased; the answer from the doctor was, " damn 
you! what did you turn them out for? " the reason, I told him, was, 
that they had got out their own sheep, and did not say any thing about 
when they should want mine, and I thought it best the sheep should 
be let out to feed; upon which, the said doctor said to me, " damn 
you! go on board the ship and I'll see what they were turned out 
for; " I told him, I would not, but would go and try to get the sheep 
up; he said " well, damn you! make haste! " and swung his sword 
over my head, — but upon trial I found it so dark, I could not get 
them in; and, on my return, was informed that he, the doctor, had 
sent on board for more help to carry me and my brother on board 
the ship; upon which, with the abuses and threats I had received 
before, I thought it time to make my escape, which I did, to the main 
land, and begged the assistance of the people, who readily came to 
my assistance. When I returned, which was about three o'clock, 
in the morning, some of my family told me, they had been on shore, 
armed, and taken all my calves, being seven in number; two of the 
poorest and smallest, they sent on shore in the morning; the others, 
with four sheep they had some days before, they carried off without 
paying any thing for them. I do further declare, the abuses and 
threats I received, from Capt. Linzey and the doctor, were the oc- 



THE LINZEE FAMILY, 539 

casion of my moving off the island, leaving my interest. And I 
declare, that I never refused Capt. Linzey, or any other person be- 
longing to any ship of war, entertainment in my house, or a supply 
of provisions that I had on my farm, and could spare. And I further 
declare, that on the night of the 29th instant, the aforesaid doctor, 
as my wife informs me, came on shore and demanded my gun, with 
his sword in hand, which she delivered to him, and I have not seen 
it since, though it was the only weapon of defence that I had on the 
island. 

The value of the sheep, calves, and gun, which they took from me, 
and the use of my horse and well, are as follows, viz. : 

Four sheep, 

Three calves, four months old. 

Four quarters of veal, sixty pounds, sold. 

One gun taken out of my house by the doctor of 

the ship, of great value, 
Riding my horse and use of my well.

In Provincial Congress Watertown June 16, 1775. 

Resolved, That the following Proclamation be signed by the Presi- 
dent, printed and published throughout this Colony. 

By the Provincial Congress. 

The confidence which our Countrymen have reposed in us lays 
us under the strongest obligation to watch and guard against all the 
malignant designs of their inveterate enemies. That the British 
Administration have formed, and have been for several years execut- 
ing a plan to enslave this, and the other American colonies, is a 
proposition so evident that it would be an affront to the understand- 
ing of mankind to adduce proofs in support of it. We shall therefore 
only advert to those unhappy circumstances which have been the 
immediate causes of plunging this people into the horrors of war and 
desolation. When a fleet and army were sent forth to deprive us of 
every thing that man holds dear — when the capital of this Colony 
became a garrison, and fortifications were erected upon the only 
land entrance into the metropolis, when the commander of the army 
so manifested his designs against us as to send out his soldiers in the 
night to remove the pubhc magazines of the colony from their safe 
lodgment in the Country and place them under the command of a 
foreign army — when he evinced his enmity to the liberties of this 
Country by sending a detachment of that army against the peaceable 
inhabitants of one of our principal towns, only because they were 
assembled quitely to concert measures to save themselves from ruin; 
when we were totally deprived of the benefit of a legislative body, 
when the whole system of distributive justice was so mutilated that 
there could be no reason to hope for any advantages from it, when 
an act of Parliament was passed by which our Countrymen were 
given up as a prey to a lawless soldiery who were screened from pun- 
ishment here for the murders they might commit. — 

In fine, when the army and navy breathed nothing but blood and 
slaughter, and all out accounts from England but too strongly proved 
the inhuman intentions of those in power, it became us as men, as 
freemen and christians to take some steps to preserve our own lives 
and properties as well as to secure the inheritance, purchases at no 
less a price than the blood of many thousand of our brave ances- 
tors, entire and undiminished for succeeding generations. 

The Congress, whom this people then chose, recommended it to 
them to provide themselves with such articles for their defence as 
the law of the land required, and further recommended it to them to 
appropriate some part of their own property for the purchasing such 
stores to be laid up in publick magazines as might be useful for the 
general defence in case an attack should be made upon us by the 
army. — The recommendation was cheerfully complied with, and 




Margaret Bijou Linzee (Linzee) Masters

THE LINZEE FAMILY. 541 

stores were procured in the most peaceable and quiet manner and 
deposited in magazines where they were to have continued without 
the least injury or disturbance to any one, unless drawn out by ne- 
cessity to save the Country from destruction. But the possibility 
of our making resistance to the bloody schemes of our adversaries 
was the source of continual terror to the traitors whose aim was to 
inslave this Country: and General Gage, after many Httle pilferings, 
and several humiliating disappointments in his attempts to rob the 
people, at length determined to destroy the magazines at Concord: 
he sent the Grenadiers and companies of light infantry of every regi- 
ment (about one thousand in number) secretly by night over Charles 
River. On their way, some of the Officers captivated and otherwise 
infamously abused several of the inhabitants, and when the body 
arrived at Lexington meeting-house, which was veiy early in the 
morning of the ever memorable nineteenth of April, they in a most 
barbarous and infamous manner fired upon a small number of the 
inhabitants and cruelly murdered eight men. 

The fire was returned by some of the survivors, but their number 
was too inconsiderable to annoy the regular troops, who proceeded 
on their errand and upon coming up to Concord began to destroy 
by fire and water the stores & magazines, until a party of them again 
fired upon and killed two more of the inhabitants. The native 
bravery of our countrymen could now no longer be restrained; a 
small party, consisting of about two or three hundred men, attacked 
them with such spirit and resolution as compelled them to retreat. 
At Lexington they met a reinforcement of regular troops consisting 
of about eight hundred with two field pieces, commanded by Lord 
Piercy; this however did not encourage them to keep their ground: 
but they continued their route towards Charlestown, making their 
way with every species of desolation and cruelty which their haste 
would permit. The burning and robbing of houses — the abuses and 
barbarities offered to defenceless women and children, the wanton 
slaughter of the aged and helpless will be a perpetual memorial of 
the base spirit which actuated the perpetrators. Upon their arrival 
at Charlestown, our countrymen quitted the pursuit, and the next 
day suffered them without any annoyance to pass the river and re- 
turn to Boston. This action of the troops destroyed every hope of 
coming to any accomodation with them, we therefore were compelled 
to raise an army to prevent such bloody excursions in future; an 
army is therefore raised and appointed for this purpose, and we are 
with the greatest reluctance obliged to declare that we have now 
nothing to depend upon, under God, to preserve America from slavery 
and destruction but our arms: To these we have been forced to 
make our appeal, and by these we are determined to maintain our 
rights; and we are obliged to declare, and do now publickly declare, 
all persons who shall afford any aid, assistance or relief, or hold any 
manner of communication of any kind whatsoever with General 



542 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

Gage, Admiral Graves, or the army or navy or any one of those now 
under their command who are stationed in our metropolis and the 
harbour of Boston or elsewhere, or any persons who are known, or 
shall hereafter be known to have afforded such aid or to have had 
such coummnication with them or either of them to be enemies and 
traitors to their Country, and they shall be proceeded against and 
treated as such, excepting only such of the unhappy inhabitants of 
Boston as have by a treacherous and most infamous breach of faith 
in General Gage, been prevented from removing out of the town of 
Boston; whose peculiar circumstances this Congress will at all times 
make due allowance for, so long as they shall avoid doing anything 
to obstruct or counteract such steps as the Congress shall think fit 
to take; but the said inhabitants are strictly forbidden, whatever 
may be the consequence of their refusal, to be in any the least degree 
instrumental in assisting the enemy or opposing the Country, as 
they would avoid the penalties due to the enemies thereof. — 

From a real tenderness to our fellowmen, we most sincerely regret 
the unhappy situation of the soldiery and sailors in the army and 
navy now stationed in the town and harbour of Boston, and assure 
them upon that faith, which never has been, and we trust never will 
be violated, that upon their quitting the infamous service in which 
they are, (as we must in charitj'^ suppose) contrary to their own in- 
clinations and principles engaged, — we will receive them as breth- 
ren and fellow subjects and protect them against every attempt 
that may be made by our enemies to force them again into the dis- 
graceful & inhuman service, in which they are now employed. And, 
that it is our earnest desire to discover our tender regard to our few 
misguided fellow-countrymen, and our readiness to forgive even 
those who have knowingly offended, we do promise and engage a 
full free pardon to all persons who have fled to the town for refuge, 
and to other public offenders against the rights and liberties of this 
Country of what kind or denomination soever: excepting only from 
the benefit of such pardon, Thomas Gage, Samuel Greaves, those 
counsellors who were appointed by Mandamus and have not signi- 
fied their resignation. Viz. Jonathan Sewall, Charles Paxton, Ben- 
jamin Hallowell, and all the natives of America, not belonging to 
the navy or army, who went out with the regular troops on the lO***. 
of April last and were countenancing, aiding and assisting them in 
the robberies & murders then committed, whose offences are of too 
flagitious a nature to admit of any other consideration than that 
of condign punishment — Provided they take the benefit hereof by 
making a surrender of themselves to any General Officer belonging 
to the Massachusetts army, and subscribe a declaration of their 
readiness to comply with, support, and abide by, all the resolutions 
and determinations which are already made by this or any former 
Congress, or that shall hereafter be made by any future Congress or 
house of Representatives of this Colony within days from the 



THE LINZEE FAMILY, 543 

date hereof. And it is earnestly enjoined upon the Selectmen, 
committee of correspondence, Com. of Safety and all other officers 
of every town in this Colony that they use their utmost diligence to 
discover and make known to this Congress any person or persons 
who shall in any respect attempt to do anything tending to render 
ineffectual their designs and doings: And we trust the God of Armies, 
on whom we rely for a blessing upon our arms, which we have taken 
up in support of the great and fundamental principles of natural 
justice and the common and indefeasible rights of mankind, will 
guide and direct us in our designs, and at last in infinite goodness to 
this his injured people restore peace and freedom to the American 
World.

The Battle of Bunker Hill. 

On the outbreak of the revolutionary conflict. Colonel WilUam 
Prescott, a farmer of Pepperell, Mass., and a veteran of the Louis- 
burgh expedition of 1746, also later with Winslow in the conquest 
of Nova Scotia, and known as a leader of dash and daring, attended 
on the 16th of June 1775 the secret call to arms on Cambridge com- 
mon. 

Already the Committee of Safety, in answer to their appeal, had 
collected from the New England towns about fifteen thousand men. 
Two regiments from New Hampshire were commanded by Colonel 
Stark and James Reed; three Rhode Island regiments under Colonels 
Varnum, Hitchcock and Church were on hand with General Green 
at their head ; and three Connecticut regiments were led by Generals 
Israel Putnam, Joseph Spencer and Colonel Samuel H. Parsons. 
General Artemas Ward, the commander in chief of Massachusetts, 
was generally, though not officially, recognized as leader of the com- 
bined military forces. 

The recommendation of the Committee of Safety to occupy Bun- 
ker Hill, was approved on the 16th of June. No time could be lost, 
as Generals Howe, Burgoyne and Clinton had reached Boston with 
reinforcements from England, and General Gage had determined 
to occupy Bunker Hill in Charlestown, which controlled Boston on 
the north, and Dorchester Heights which commanded Boston on 
the south, on or about the 18th of June. 

A band of raw recruits, consisting of Prescott's, Fry's and Bridge's 
regiments, about two hundred Connecticut troopers under Capt. 
Thomas Knowlton, and Capt. Samuel Gridley's artillery company, 
were ordered by General Ward to proceed about nine at night, under 
the leadership of Colonel Wilham Prescott, and to entrench them- 
selves on Bunker's Hill. The night was clear, a prayer for their 
safety by the Rev. Dr. Langdon, president of Harvard College,

started thcin on their eventful march. They arrived at their desti- 
nation in two hours, poorly armed and inadequately provisioned; 
the total force was a trifle over twelve hundred men, augmented 
when crossing Charlestown Neck by a few hundred reinforcements 
and General Putnam and Major Brooks. 

Both Colonels Prescott and Gridley, upon viewing the topography 
of the land, decided that Breed's Hill, a lower site than Bunker Hill, 
was the proper position on which to construct the redoubt, in order 
to prevent the British from using it as a protection to their formations 
after landing. Colonel Gridley, the engineer, at once laid out a 
redoubt of about one hundred and forty feet square, with orders to 
raise it to a height of seven feet, with breastworks about four hundred 
feet long towards the Mystic River, and nine hundred feet long 
towards the west slope of the hill on the Charles River side. These 
fortifications were not completed until the next morning at eleven, 
when the tools were sent back to Putnam for the purpose of forti- 
fying Bunker's Hill. The redoubt was therefore near the water 
front and in close proximity to the heavy ordnance of the armed ships 
of the British navy. 

The Falcon, of twenty guns and one hundred and thirty men, lay 
off Moulton's Point, near the present bridge to Chelsea. She was 
the ship nearest to the Mystic side of the peninsula, and was com- 
manded by Captain John Linzee. 

The Somerset, of sixty-eight guns and five hundred and twenty 
men. Captain Edward Le Cras, was stationed off Charlestown 
Square near the present Warren Bridge. 

The Lively, of twenty guns and one hundred and thirty men, 
Captain Thomas Bishop, was at anchor off the present Navy Yard, 
but during the action took a position between the Falcon and the 
Somerset. 

The Glasgow, of twenty-four guns and one hundred and thirty 
men. Captain William Maltby, was moored at where Craigie's Bridge 
was, but now known as the new dam. 

The Cerberus, of thirty-six guns. Captain Chads, and probably 
the transport Symmetry of twenty guns, with two large floating 
batteries, stood higher up on the Charles River, commanding Charles- 
town Neck, and prevented reinforcements from reaching Bunker's 
Hill and the redoubt. 

Three times during the night, Prescott visited the- water's edge, 
where the " all's well " of the night watches of the ships of war could 
be clearly heard. And it was not until four in the morning that the 
redoubt, now fully visible, and the American forces, were discovered 
by the Falcon and the Lively, who immediately fired on the works, 
thereby warning the British generals in Boston of what had hap- 
pened during the night. 

Those who built the redoubt wished to retire and leave the work 
of defence to a relief party from Cambridge; but Prescott said, " No, 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 545 

we have made the redoubt and will remain to defend it while life 
lasts ". Then mounting its walls, he walked around it to encourage 
his men in full view of the British army and navy. 

General Gage asked his counsellor Willard, " Who is in command 
of the Americans ", and " will he fight " ? " Yes, sir ", replied Wil- 
lard, " he is an old soldier and will fight as long as a drop of blood 
remains in his veins ", also mentioning that it was his own brother- 
in-law, William Prescott. " The works must be carried ", was 
Gage's reply. 

Admiral Graves ordered the fleet to cease their fire, but a battery 
of six guns and howitzers on Copp's Hill soon joined in the attack, 
which, however, did little damage, except to deter reinforcements 
from reaching Prescott in the redoubt. Cannon balls were heated 
red-hot and a hail of these fell on Charlestown and set it on fire. 

General Gage, contrary to the advice of Generals Clinton, Howe 
and Burgoyne, determined on a frontal attack; a flank attack in 
the rear of the American forces, he considered too dangerous as it 
placed the attackers between the fire of the redoubt and the rein- 
forcements near Charlestown Neck. At noon Gage ordered Major- 
General Howe and Brigadier-General Pigot with four battalions, 
to cross over to Moulton's Point in front of Breed's Hill, where the 
Falcon and the Lively had cleared the low lands at the shore line. 

Four battalions, consisting of two companies of grenadiers, ten of 
light infantry, and some field artillery, were embarked at Long Wharf 
and the North Battery in barges armed with cannon at their prows, 
and landed at Moulton's Point about one o'clock; they formed, 
but waited for reinforcements which contained more light infantry, 
grenadiers and a battalion each of land forces and marines. This 
whole force was over three thousand men. General Howe went 
with the right wing to cut off the retreat, and General Pigot with the 
left wing to storm the redoubt; and at three o'clock the attack be- 
gan. Generals Burgoyne and Clinton viewed the battle from Copp's 
Hill, and the former, after Clinton decided to share in the fight, took 
his stand in the belfry of the tower of the North Church of Boston, 
from where the light of inspiration had blazed forth for the midnight 
ride of Paul Revere. 

The English troops attacked in two lines without any cover, and 
were therefore exposed to the deadly American marksmen, schooled 
in the art of hunting, and who now obeyed the advice of their leaders, 
" Wait till you see the whites of their eyes ". They reserved their 
fire until the enemy were within two hundred feet, and repulsed them 
in disorderly consternation. 

This fusillade, instead of only irregular shots, showed the British 
officers that the work before them was a genuine battle, instead of a 
riot; with the usual British pluck, they made a second charge which 
came within one hundred feet of the American lines, when the slaugh- 
ter was so terrific that it also was repulsed in about fifteen minutes. 



546 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

But the English troops had got close enough to overhear an incau- 
tious call for ammunition, as the supply in the provincial ranks was 
nearly exhausted. 

At this period of the fight, four hundred fresh British marines 
were hurried over. Charlostown was further set on fire by General 
Pigot's division, a brisker cannonade of the Neck was ordered to 
prevent aid to the redoubt, and the reinforcements which the Ameri- 
cans brought up to the left of Prescott were now fully engaged with 
no prospect of passing to his assistance. General Clinton also crossed 
over to the aid of his staggered army. 

The British officers were now furious and grim, it was a case of 
conquer or go home humiliated; their generals determined on a 
third assault to be delivered with more caution. The troops were 
ordered to set aside their knapsacks and other impediments, to move 
forward in column, to reserve their fire and rely on the bayonet, 
to deliver their attack simultaneously from several sides, and es- 
pecially to concentrate their main attack on the weak points in the 
redoubt which were at last discovered, and to advance their cannon 
to a point where the breastwork could be enfiladed. 

The fortunes of the day were thus reversed. 

The third attack advanced with little opposition to within fifty 
feet of the redoubt, where it met a feeble fire from Prescott's men, 
whose ammunition was exhausted, while they were improperly 
armed for close quarters. With a cheer the British rushed the short 
intervening distance and mounted and carried the breastwork. 
Major Pitcairn, who gave the first order to fire on the provincials at 
Lexington, was one of the foremost to scale the walls, but immediately 
fell mortally wounded. 

Prescott, seeing that there was no hope of making a stand, ordered 
a retreat over Charlestown Neck, which movement was executed 
under the protection of Captain Knowlton and his men at the Mystic 
River, and it was during this retreat that the Americans suffered 
most of their casualties. They withdrew orderly to Prospect Hill, 
followed by the British to Bunker's Hill, when the two armies en- 
trenched facing each other again. The battle was over before six 
in the evening. 

Major-General Joseph Warren joined the provincials before the 
fight, to show that the leaders were willing to share the dangers of 
the men. He refused the command tendered by Prescott, and was 
shot in the head and killed by a musket ball at the end of the third 
assault. 

The Americans lost one hundred and forty killed and two hundred 
and seventy-one wounded, and thirty-six missing. The British suf- 
fered the loss of thirty-five officers and one hundred and ninety-five 
men killed, and one hundred and twenty-two officers and seven hun- 
dred and six men wounded. 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 547 

Congratulations poured in on Massachusetts from all the other 
American Colonies. Benjamin Franklin wrote to a friend in Lon- 
don, " Americans will fight, England has lost her Colonies for ever ". 
At last undiseipUned farmers had braved the veteran troops of Old 
England in the protection of their homes, rights and liberties. The 
courage and determination displayed by the immortal band of 
patriots under Prescott could be matched by no other similar 
achievement in history, while the fame of their exploit was far reach- 
ing and bore fruit for political, industrial and social justice through- 
out the world. The great courage of the English was all that 
remained to sustain their spirit to prosecute the war. The 19th of 
April 1775 saw the birth of the American nation, the 17th of June 
following was its baptism. 

The great lesson of the Battle of Bunker Hill consisted in demon- 
strating to three millions of colonists, the absolute necessity of arm- 
ing and fighting for national independence, and the proof of its final 
establishment. 

Story's statue of Prescott at Bunker Hill was referred to by 
Robert C. Winthrop in these terms: 

" Prescott stands here clad in the light banyan coat and broad 
brimmed hat which he is known to have thrown on during the in- 
tense heat of the day in exchange for the more stately but cumbrous 
uniform in which he marched from Cambridge the night before the 
battle." 

" He has returned: — not with three fresh regiments only, as he 
proposed, but with the acclamation of every soldier and citizen." 

" He has retaken Bunker Hill; and with it, the hearts of all who 
shall be gathered upon it, generation after generation, in all the un- 
told centuries of the future " (*).

Like rebels stout, they stood it out, 

And thought we ne'er could beat them. 
About the hour of twelve that day 

An order came for marching, 
With three good flints and sixty rounds, 

Each man hoped to discharge them. 
We marched down to the Long-wharf, 

Where boats were ready waiting. 
With expedition we embarked, 

Our ships kept cannonading. 
And when our boats all filled were 

With officers and soldiers, 
With as good troops as England had 

To oppose, who dare control us. 
And when our boats all filled were, 

We rowed in line of battle. 
The showers of ball like hail did fly. 

Our cannon loud did rattle. 
The Glasgow frigate cleared the shore, 

All in the time of landing, 
With her grape shot and musket balls. 

No rebels could withstand them. 
Brave WiUiam Howe on our right wing. 

Cried, boys, fight on like thunder; 
You soon will see the rebels flee, 

In great amaze and wonder. 
They began to play on our left wing. 

Where Pigot he commanded, 
But we returned it back again, 

With courage most undaunted. 
To our grape shot and musket balls, 

To which they were but strangers. 
They thought to come with sword in hand. 

But soon they found their danger. 
But our conductor he got broke 

For his misconduct sure, sir, 
The shot he sent for twelve pound guns, 

Were made for twenty-fours, sir. 
There's some in Boston pleased to say, 

As we the field were taking, 
We went to kill their countrymen, 

While they their hay were making. 
For such stout whigs I never saw. 

To hang them all I'd rather. 
For making hay with musket balls. 

And buck-shot mixed together.

The battle of Bunker Hill really consoHdated, broadened out and 
in every way reformed the governing principles of the British Em- 
pire. It taught their leaders of imperiahsm the fallacy of attempting 
to throttle the trade of their dependencies, the evil of denying to 
them the full enjoyment of their cherished individual and collective 
privileges established by their leaders and exercised for generations, 
and the wisdom of permitting colonies to handle their internal affairs, 
especially their own form of taxation. This principle or fundamen- 
tal truth of not owning a distant country too intimately politically, 
taught by the American Revolution, has for its latest harvest. South 
Africa, where even the reins of government have been released to 
the local authorities, and almost all overseas mihtary occupancy 
has been removed, leaving only, for an attachment to the British 
Einpire, mutual love, respect, honor and good-will, governmental 
economy and utility, and interdependent protection based on the 
recognition that the highest idealism actuates the principals. 

The shaft at Bunker Hill, Charlestown, stands as a testimonial to 
American valor and sense of justice, and to the other nations how 
not to govern their colonies. 

The grandson of Colonel William Prescott, the son of Judge Wil- 
liam Prescott, the celebrated historian William Hickling Prescott, 
forty-five years after the battle, in 1820, married Susannah Amory, 
the granddaughter of Captain John Linzee, and daughter of Thomas 
Coffin Amory and Hannah Rowe Linzee. From this alliance springs 
the romance of the crossed swords to be later recorded. 

The great -nephew of General Joseph Warren, the son of Dr. John 
Collins Warren, leading surgeon of Boston in his times, James Sulli- 
van Warren, seventy-one years after the battle, in 1846, married 
Elizabeth Tilden (Linzee) Green, the granddaughter of Captain 
John Linzee, and daughter of John Inman Linzee and Ehzabeth 
Tilden. 

The grandson of the patriot Paul Revere, the son of Joseph War- 
ren Revere, John Revere, seventy-three years after the battle, in 
1848, married Susan Tilden Torrey, the daughter of John Gore 
Torrey and Susan Linzee Tilden, and the great granddaughter of 
Captain John Linzee through his daughter Susannah Linzee the 
wife of Joseph Tilden. 



550 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

By the marriage of Grace Linzee (Revere) Gross, the daughter of 
John Revere and Susan Tilden Torrey, to Sir WilHam Osier, their 
son Edward Revere Osier is heir to an English title of nobility. 

Immediately after the battle of Bunker Hill, General Gage was 
under the necessity of sending out his ships of war in search of food, 
to feed their crews and his troops on shore. These foraging expedi- 
tions generally seized what they could under the principle of de- 
ferred payment. Captain Linzee of the Falcon was assigned this 
duty, and his ship and name became a terror along the coast from 
Maine to New York: his seizures were often attended with fierce 
encounters, in which his tenders and barges occasionally met their 
match from the inhabitants along the seaboard. 

On the 5 Aug. 1775, a barge load of his men was driven back by 
an ambuscade on Coffin's Beach in Ipswich Bay, where he at- 
tempted to gather in a herd of sheep grazing in the vicinity. 

Three days later, on the 8 Aug., while manceuvering about Cape 
Ann, he espied, chased and captured one of two schooners from the 
West Indies bound for Salem, Mass. ; the other he pursued into the 
harbor of Gloucester, where the Falcon, herself, could not safely 
enter. His attempt to capture the escaped schooner by barges and 
the captured vessel will now be described by Captain John Linzee 
himself, in a letter written by him to Vice Admiral Graves. 

The citizens of Gloucester have held anniversaries of rejoicings on 
their successful repulse of his attack, which was, to say the least, 
hazardous and doubtful of success from the very commencement; 
but " nothing ventured, nothing gained ", was his, should be and 
is always the motto in war.

Truth at Last. 

Those who kept in reasonabty close touch with the City Council 
affairs last year when the city had a mayor who dared to voice his 
individual opinion through the medium of a veto message or two, 
will perhapsre call the fact that His Honor put his foot down severely 
upon the matter of celebrating the 125th anniversary of the 
Linzee's attack upon the town, giving as his reasons that the City 
Council had adopted the wrong date for the celebration. In his 
veto message, the mayor also mildly criticised the loose manner 
in which orders of various sorts were being drawn and then adopted 
without due consideration, simply because some one member of the 
City Council so requested. 

The veto was one of the few which was not overridden, the City 
Council preferring to lay the order " on the table." 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 551 

In the interest of historical accuracy City Clerk Somes, who had 
been among the first to suggest that a celebration be held, set on 
foot an investigation of records existing at various points, but his 
quest was barren of results, except in one case. At London, Eng- 
land, was discovered a letter written by Capt. Linzee in which was 
told the story of the attack upon the town and the manner in which 
the " rebels " resisted his fire, took his men prisoners and confis- 
cated the long boat and other property, which later was sold for the 
benefit of the poor of the town. 

The discovery of this letter set at rest all doubt upon the matter, 
and proves conclusively that Mayor Merchant was right in his claim 
that Aug. 8th should be the day of celebration, notwithstanding the 
fact that the Salem Gazette, a few days after the fight set the day as 
Aug. 9, while other authorities have claimed Aug. 13th as correct. 

The correspondence upon the subject, with Capt. Linzee's letter, 
follows.

Sir 

I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of Oc- 
tober 27, communicating your desire to ascertain the date of Lind- 
say's attack upon your city in 1775. 

The date was 8 August 1775. My vouchers for this statement are, 
Capt. John Linzee's letter (copy enclosed) from the Sloop " Falcon " 
of 10 August to Vice Admiral Graves, reporting his endeavor to 
capture two schooners and his attempt to set fire to the Town of 
Cape Ann. This letter has an endorsement on the back of its last 
page. 

I also enclose a copy of one paragraph, being the only paragraph 
on the subject in Vice Admiral Samuel Graves' letter of 17 August 
1775, 8 pages, on various subjects connected with the fleet under his 
command. In this letter the Admiral says he encloses a copy of the 
letter from Capt. Linzee. 

In the Transcripts herewith spelling, capitals, abbreviations, punc- 
tuations and peculiarities are carefully followed. For the service 
in searching and transcribing these papers at the Public Record 
OflBce, Admiralty Division from Vol. 167, Nos. 15c and 15b, you 
may if you please send me seven dollars in greenbacks, 

I gratefully acknowledge the compliment that J. J. Cartwright,

Falcon in Nantasket Road, 

10 August 1775. 
Sir: 

I beg leave to inform you that on the 8th instant, cruizing ofif 
Cape Ann in His Majesty's Sloop under my Command, I discovered 
two schooners under sail standing for the shore, I made sail after 
them and very soon came up with the Stermost and detained her, 
the other got into Cape Ann Harbour whither I followed on my an- 
choring the same day, I sent Lieut. Thornborough with the Pin- 
nance, Long boat and Jolly boat, Mann'd and arm'd in order to 
bring the Schooner out, the Master coming in from sea at the same 
time in a small tender I directed him to go and assist the Lieutenant. 

When the Boats had passed a Point of Rocks that was between the 
Ship and Schooner they received a heavy fire from the Rebels who 
were hidden behind Rocks and Houses, and behind Schooners 
aground at Wharfs, but notwithstanding the heavy fire from the 
Rebels, Lieut. Thornborough boarded the schooner and was him- 
self and three Men wounded from the Shore. On the Rebels firing 
on the Boats, I fired from the ship into the Town, to draw the Rebels 
from the Boats, I very soon observed the Rebels payed little atten- 
tion to the firing from the Ship, and seeing their fire continued very 
heavy on the Schooner the Lieutenant had boarded, I made an attempt 
to set fire to the Town of Cape Ann, had I succeeded in — I flatter 
myself would have given the Lieutenant an opportunity of bringing 
the Schooner off, or have left her by the Boats — as the Rebels at- 
tention must have been to the fire — but an American, part of my 
complement (who had always been very active in our cause; set 
fire to the Powder before it was properly placed, our attempt to 
fire the Town not only failed but one of the Men was blowed up, 
and American deserted, a second attempt was made to set fire to 
the Town but did not succeed, the Rebels coming to the Fort obliged 
the four Men to leave it. I then began a second time to fire on the 
Town but the Houses being built of Wood could do no great damage 
— about 4 o'clock in the afternoon the Lieutenant was brought on 
board under Cover of the Master's fire from the Schooner, who could 
not leave her. All the boats were much damaged by Shot, and lay 
on the side of the schooner next the Rebels on my being made ac- 
quainted with the situation of the Master, I sent the Prize Schooner 
to anchor, a head of the Schooner the Master was in and veer along- 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 553 

side to take him and People away, who were very much exposed to 
the Rebels fire, but from want of an Officer to send in her it was not 
performed the Vessel not anchored properly — and as I apprehend 
the Master could not see any prospect of being assisted, and a heavy 
fire from the Rebels and Numbers coming to their assistance, de- 
livered himself up about 7 in the Evening with the Gunner, fifteen 
seamen, Seven Marines, One Boy, and ten prest Americans. The 
Schooner I sent in to assist the Master, on his going ashore ran in and 
was retaken by the Rebels I am inclined to think the Company of 
the Schooner had been hid and took the opportunity of retaking 
the Vessel that was sent to assist the Master, after the Master was 
landed I found I could not do him any good, nor distress the Rebels 
by firing, I therefore left off. On this occasion the Rebels took the 
Pinnance Jolly boat, three Swivels, some small Arms, and two small 
Anchors with one Hawser, that was to wharp the Schooner out by. 
I remained at anchor till the following Morning and then Wharped 
out in order to proceed to this Place.

On the 8 Aug. 1778, the Falcon, commanded by Captain John 
Linzee at the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775, was sunk off Newport, 
R. I., to prevent her capture by the French fleet under Admiral 
D'Estaing. She was then under the command of another captain. 
She has never been raised or explored.

Extracts of a letter from J. or I. C. Considers it strange that the 
British Army should have done so little. Interview he has had with 
his friend Capt. John Linzee on the Pearl, who has satisfied him con- 
cerning the naval operations in the Delaware. Remarks that it is 
not a common thing for refugees to receive civilities from those in 
office; his opinion on the subject; those who have persevered in 
their loyalty are neglected, not being thought worthy of considera- 
tion. There are in North Carolina more Friends to Government 
than in the whole city of Philadelphia. Clamour caused by the 
paper currency. Sentiments upon the rebelHon; lenity thrown 
away on this people. Expressions of Loyalty. Endorsed : Copy of 
a letter from I. C. to his Father.

Lord High Admiral of Great Britain and Ire-

By Virtue of the Power and Authority to Us given, We do hereby 
constitute and appoint you Captain of His Majesty's Ship the Pearl.

(Ill: 406, N.) Capt John Linzee was in command of the Pearl 
of 32 guns and 220 men, under Vice-Admiral Lord Howe on the Eagle 
of 64 guns and 522 men, in Howe's cruise to hold the French fleet 
under Admiral D'Estaing in American waters. 

With an inferior force, Howe, in one campaign, saved the British 
fleet, by not engaging except under conditions suitable to himself, 
and protected the city of New York and portions of the State of 
Rhode Island, where the British army was divided between these 
two posts and dependent for their position upon the sea. This was 
an achievement unsurpassed in the annals of naval defensive war- 
fare. 

(Ill: 520) Capt. John Linzee (not in the action) of the Santa 
Monica of 36 guns, was with the British fleet under Admiral Sir 
George Brydges Rodney in the line of battle of the 12 Apr. 1782, 
against the French Admiral De Grasse. 

(IV: 112) Jan 21, 1782. The Santa Monica, Capt. John Linzee 
of 36 guns was wrecked off Tortola. 

[Evidently the Santa Monica escaped destruction by shipwreck, 
if she was in the fleet with Rodney, in Apr. 1782]. 

From family tradition, Captain John Linzee was in command of 
the Pearl on the 9 Nov. 1777, and was present in a naval engagement 
on the Delaware River, his wife being on board during the action. 

In 1779 he was at the island of the Barbadoes with his wife, where 
his fourth child was born; he then returned to England, and resided 
at No. 8 Great George Street Plymouth with his family from 1781 
to 1788, but it is certain that he saw some active service during this 
interval, as shown by the account of Wm. Laird Clowes. 

Captain Linzee [probably John], late of the Thetis, who lost his 
ship in going to the defence of St. Lucia. (Navy Records Soc, 
Letters of Sir Samuel Hood, edited by David Hannay, p. 23). 

Captain John Linzee commanded His Majesty's Ship the Penelope 
from 4 Dec. 1788 to 1791-2. On the 9 Sept. 1790, he sailed with 
her into the harbor of Boston, Mass., and there fired probably the

first salute in New England waters to the flag of the United States 
of America. He then sailed for Halifax in 1791, after recovering 
from a severe illness, but he returned to Boston in Feb. 1792, when 
the death of his wife in Oct. of that year, caused him to resign from 
the British Navy and to settle permanently in America. The Penel- 
ope was the last man-of-war commanded by him. His sons Samuel 
Hood Linzee and John Inman Linzee were with him during the salute 
in Boston harbor. The elder son remained in the British Navy, and 
returned to England in 1791 to follow his naval career; but the 
younger son resigned from the navy with his father and went to 
school in Boston. 

In 1793, Joseph Tucker of Dartmouth, Co. Bristol, sued Captain 
John Linzee for non-payment for sheep, taken by Linzee on the 1 
May 1775 for the use of the British navy, this debt was paid by Cap- 
tain Linzee out of his own private purse, and there is no evidence that 
he was ever reimbursed on this account by the English government. 

In 1794, his wife's aunt Hannah Rowe appeared to be displeased 
with him on account of his occupancy of her Essex Street mansion 
in Boston, but this disagreement was of short duration, as the love 
and affection between Mrs. Rowe and Captain John Linzee and his 
children existed through life and found a lasting expression in the 
distribution of her property by her will. He retired to Milton, 
Mass., where he resided in a house, still in existence, not far from 
the present bridge over the Neponset River. 

Captain John Linzee's death in 1798 was a sad blow to his mother- 
less children, but their great-aunt Mrs. Hannah Rowe cared for 
them as her own.

Letter from Joseph Willard to John Inman Linzee. 

Boston June 1 1858 
My dear Mr. Linzee 

I send you this interesting little relic of your mother, which no 
one can appreciate equally with yourself. It gives me great pleas- 
ure to have this opportunity. As time recedes, we seize with more 
and more of fond affection every memorial that connects us with 
beloved parents and friends who have gone to their rest. 

This letter of a pleasant girl written to her most intimate friend, 
who was so soon to experience like adverse circumstances from father 
and mother, only shows how futile are all bars and oppositions when 
the " young folks " are determined. 

With the kindest regards from Mrs. Willard and myself to Mrs. 
Linzee and your daughter as well as to yourself 

I remain 

Faithfully yours

This letter of Joseph Willard was sent to my father and contained 
one from his mother to her intimate friend Lucy Flucker, who mar-

Enough To Support me here in the greatest Splendor & to See Every

notwithstanding Mr. Lane's great Civility to us. our being their 
could not but be very Illconvenient bouth to him and us. his house 
is but small And when Mrs. Lane comes to town his Family will be 
Large. & as Capt Linzee thought it would be very Uncertain how long 
we should remain in town as he Must have Stayed till the arrival of 
Lord Sandwich He thought it was best to take Lodgeings Mr. Lane 
Did not like our leaving his house, he has been very Kind & I shall 
allways Acknowledge it., we are Ln Exceeding good Lodgeings & in 
a good part of the town, my Lord Sandwich Came to town last

Be next Tuesday, we shall first go & Spend a few Days with my 
Uncle George Inman. & then Proceed To Plymouth, where I do 
not doubt of spending a Very agreeable Winter. & what will make 
it more so is The pleasing Expectation, I hope to have of going to 
America in the Spring the thoughts of that will Make every thing 
here agreeable & Cleaver. I want Nothing Dear Mama to make 
me more happy But a sight of my Dear Friends, till I left them /

Mrs. Inman at Cambridge near Boston New England

My ever Dear Mama, 

Permit me to return you my Sincere thanks for your kind Letter, 
which I have received with the greatest pleasure, I will if Possible 
describe to you my Behaveiour at the Receipt of those kind Letters, 
which gives me so much Satisfaction, it was the twenty second day 
of this month, (which I dare say my Friends rememberd was my birth 
day), it was about Eight oclock in the morning an hour that the 
family general goes to breakfast. Imagine Dear Madam what must 
be my joy when the Servant came in with a great bundle of Letters 
and said they was from Boston. I had hardly patients to wait till 
they was oppend, but with a trembUng hand & eyes streeming with 
tears of joy ran to my Chamber & there was I for several hours 
reading the dear Epistles, but you would have Laught my dear 
Mama had you seen me for I first took up one Letter & read it half 
through then took up another & so on, but how shall I Express my 
feeUngs when reading my dear Papa & Aunt's Letter, every word was 
so Affectionate that I would have given the world to have been near 
them that I might on my knees have thanked them for their Good- 
ness to me, but I will by my Behaveiour Endeavour to deserve it. 

You tell me in your kind Letter not to preswade Capt. Linzee to 
Settle in England, no my dear Mama depend upon it I shall not, for 
though I like my Friends here & Indeed have all the reason in the 
world so to do, yet it is with you & my dear Father, Uncle, Aunt, 
Brother & Sister, that I wish to Settle with & I cannot help Indulg- 
ing myself with the pleasing Expectation that we shall one day or 
other set our selvs down at Boston or Cambridge, my dear Capt. 
Linzee often gives me these hopes, hopes that I am willing to In- 
dulge, & as he loves my Friends as well as he does his own, & likes 



562 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

America much better then he does England, I think I may Indulge 
myself without much fear of a Disappointment. 

I am my dear Mama very uneasy about that Complaint of my 
Aunt's I know of no one that can have more Influence on her then 
you, use my dear Madam, your utmost power, to perswade her to 
take some good Advice, get her as much as possible out in the Coun- 
try, I wish she would ride a horseback for her Friends sake as well 
as her own, she ought to take care of herself. Indeed mama I never 
knew till since I left her how dear she is to me, I am happy to hear 
my Uncle's Leg is got well again. I was afraid it would Confine him 
a long time, when we are from our Friends, we are much more 
anxious about them, then if we was with them, experience tells me 
this, & I am certain to Lose a Friend & to be absent from them, 
would be a double sorrow, what pleasure do you give me when you 
tell me my dear Papa is happy, may it be Uninterrupted, who my 
dear Mama deserves to be happy, without it is those who Endeav- 
ours to make everj'- one Else so, that you know was always my Papa's 
Study, — I find my brother George is still with my Aunt. I doubt 
not but his Amiable temper. & good Behaveiour, will Endear him to 
all his Friends, that it may is my Earnest wish, this I am certain 
that his love for his dear Parents & Friends, will make him do all 
in his power to make them happy, as to my dear Sally, if she Im- 
proves in every thing as she does in her writeing, she will be what 
her Friends wishes her, & I dare say she does, tell her my dear Mama, 
not to hang her Lip, because I did not write her a long Letter, but 
I intend it soon. — I find my Friend Sally Gould has been to spend 
a few days with you, she is a Good Girl, I have a Sincere regard for 
her. I was very Glad when I heard Betcy Murry was staying at 
Cambridge as I know Sally will be very happy with her, please to 
give my Love & good wishes to her. I intend writeing to her by 
the mast Ship Capt Brown, who sails from Portsmouth for America, 
the begining of May, by him I shall answer the young Ladies obigeing 
Letter had I time I would by this Packet. Capt. Linzee desires 
his best Love to you, George & sally he writes to my Papa & to 
George if he has time, you will see by my Aunt's letter that he has 
been ill, but he is thank God geting better, his Father & Sisters 
sends their Love & Good wishes to you & all the family. I am with 
great respect dear Mama

Capt. Brown is well known to bouth my Uncle & Papa. I shall give 
him Letters to all my Friends. I thought by this time he was half 
way to America as he wrote Capt. Linzee that he should sail in May. 
Indeed you will see by my letters that whent in the may Packet that 
I intended to send them by him, but Capt. Linzee thought they 
would be received as soon as if they whent by him. as the above 
mentioned Governer Pen is not here yet it is uncertain how long he 
will wait for him, but I shall take care & get all my Letters ready.

opinion of me then be thought wanting in that love and respect which 
is due to one who I shall ever Honour as an own Mother, and such 
my Dear Madam, shall I ever look upon you . . . next Month we 
shall look out for Capt Jacobson who I hope to see as soon as he 
arrives, that I may make Inqires about all my dear Friends. In- 
deed that is not the only pleasure I expect, for I am certain all my

for his arrival, . . . what whould I give if you was all in England 
now to see how Beautiful every thing looks Especially the Country. 
I whent the other day to the most delightfull place I ever saw in 
my Life, every person who knows any thing of the west Country, 
must have heard of Mount Edgcumbe the seat of my Lord Edg- 
cumbe it is not for such a pen as mine to describe the beauties of 
that place the Parks, the Groves, the Grottos, the Gardens, the 
walks, are all beyond Imagination, but I shall say no more of it at 
present, I hope my dear Mamma will Excuse the shortness of this

Letter from Susannah Linzee to Miss Sally Inman.

My ever Dear Sister 

With what pleasure do I resume my pen to thank my dear Sally 
for her affectionate letter dated April 14th which I received with the 
same pleasing Satisfaction that I always do when I hear of the well 
being of a sister whom I sincerely love & one who's Happiness I have 
as much at heart as mine own. As you my Dear Girl are well con- 
vinced of my regard for you it is easyer for you to Imagine when I 
describe the joy it gives me to hear from all my Friends of the Im- 
provement you make in your writeing, reading, sifering &" continue 
my dear girl as you have begun, how happy will it make our Dear 
Dear Friends consider this my Dear Amiable Sally & strive to please 
the best of parents by your ready obedience to do what ever is their 
will & pleasure, then will you find a Satisfaction within yourseK. 
Ah my Dear what an inexpressable pleasure wiU it be to you some few 
years hence if you can say to yourself I have never once offended 
my father nor my mother nor yet one of my friends. I am con- 
vinced no one can be truly happy that ever did. I my Dearest sis- 
ter have only one thing to reflect upon myself & even that gives me 
the greatest Concern & that is I always was too reserved to Papa to 
my Aunt when with them I seldom entered into Conversation & what 
was it from (youll say) believe me not from want of Affection for I 
never, never wanted for that tho' I did not show it in the manner I 
ought to have done & I entreat you my sweet Girl not to do the same, 
on the contrary. Communicate your most secret thoughts to you 
Dear Father, Mother, or Aunt, your affection for them must be

better, therefore I will dwell no longer on the meloncoly subject, 
your spirits my dear are so good that I think it a pity to damp them, 
you have an affectionate heart which I know would Sympathize 
with any one in distress. — I yesterday wrote a letter to my friend 
Capt. Jacobson to know when he sails for dear Boston & at the same 
time to ask him to come to Plymouth if possible before he goes. I 
am in hopes he will as my Aunt wrote me that he said he would come 
three hundred miles to see me & it is not that from hear to London. 
I need not say how happy I should be to see one who has so lately 
been at Boston & one who has always been like one of our own family

Letter from Captain John Linzee to Mrs. Rowe. 

Portsmouth April 15. 1788 
My dear Madam: 

I came here from London this morning on my way for Plymouth 
and on meeting Callahan here, I thought it a proper opportunity 
to say I left George and Family perfectly well yesterday. I have 
placed him in such a manner that I bless God he is out of difficulties, 
they will sail for Grenada on the 17 instant. I can assure you my 
dear Madam, that from recommendations that I have got for him, 
I have not the least doubt but he will very soon hold two or three 
appointments. Your Bill in favor of George for 50L on Champion 
and Dickason came yesterday before I left London. I have it in 
lieu of the money I paid for you to George, the Bill is duly accepted. 
I have advanced Three Hundred and forty Pounds Sterhng for 
George, it is a very great matter to my large family, when I get to 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 567

dear Susan and self, I received a Letter from her this morning of

Plymouth January 4. 1789 
My dear Madam : — 

I know it will give you pleasure to know from a certainty that we 
are coming, therefore I write you, to say on the fourth of December 
I hoisted my Pendant as Captain of His Majesty's Penelope of Thirty 
two Guns, and am now nearly ready to Sail for Hahfax — but do 
not intend Sail till the first Week in March, as the Season will be 
more favorable — The Ship is the finest in the Navy, quite New, 
and fitted agreeable to my desire, to accomodate my dear Susan, 
and flock — I shall write you a few words by the March one, if I 
do not Sail before the first Wednesday in March — If any Vessels 
should sail for Halifax, from Boston, after the first of April, write 
us to Halifax — you will not have time to write to England — As 
Susan has wrote by this Packet, I shall now conclude with saying 
it will give me very much pleasure to see you, and I am My dear 
Madam most faithfully and Affectionately 

Your Nephew

P.S. I hope my Susan will be up at Boston, and in the House 
you are so good as to us to be in — before she is brought to Bed — 
To cross the Old field will make it comfortable to Visit each other.

Sir: — 

I have the honor to inform your Excellency that I intend anchor- 
ing in the Harbor of Boston with His Britannic Majesty's Ship 
Penelope under my command. — And I am further to observe to 
your Excellency, that I shall Salute the Colours of the United States 
of America, with thirteen Guns — provided your Excellency will by 
letter assure me, that the same number of Guns, from the Guns of 
the Castle, shall be returned immediately after my thirteenth Gun 
being fired. 

My exceeding ill State of Health will prevent me the honor of 
waiting on you for this day or two; But so soon as my health will 
admit, I shall do myself that honor. — And I am with every possible 
respect and esteem, Your Excellency's 

Most obedient and very humble 

John Lin zee 
To His Excellency 
John Hancock Esqr. 
&c. &c. &c. 

In conversation with my father, John Inman Linzee, I distinctly 
remember hearing him make the statement that, when a lad, he 
was on board ship with his father during a salute of guns. The 
salute referred to is probably the one recorded in the letter written 
by Capt. John Linzee to Gov. John Hancock, on the 9 Sept. 1790, 
for later my father was a midshipman on the Penelope. (Statement 
by John William Linzee). 

The answer of Gov. Hancock in regards to this salute cannot be 
found, yet he must have agreed to Capt. Linzee's request, as the 
Penelope entered the harbor of Boston, and sailed away again on 
the 17 September, but without her commander, who was left be- 
hind, " lying very dangerously ill of a fever at his house in this 
town ". (0 After his recovery he rejoined his ship, for in a letter 
dated Penelope, Halifax Jan. 12 1791, addressed to Herman Brimmer 
Esqr. Boston, he wrote: " but I cannot conclude without first tell- 
ing you my two Sons with self are in perfect health by the blessing

of God." The two sons referred to were Samuel Hood Linzee, after- 
wards Admiral in the Royal Navy, and John Inman Linzee; from 
the latter all the Boston Linzee's are descended.

Wednesday 12. 1791. 5 p.m. 
My dear Sir: — 

About half an hour since the Schooner Chatham arrived and 
brought me your favor of the 6 Inst, accompanied with a saddle of 
Venison, for each, I now by way of New York, by the Brig Rose, 
request your acceptance of thanks — The letters inclosed me, I read, 
and forwarded as approved, I have not the least doubt of your ob- 
taining the greater part of the business from Lence — Thompson 
communicated to me what he had wrote his friends in England on 
your behalf — Levie has assured me he will call on you when he has 
business at Boston — 

Gregory Townshend looks out sharp for G. so probably I 

may lay, as the Sailor says an Anchor to Windward of him — and 
depend on it I will if I can serve you — as the Vessel this goes by 
is now with her Sails loose, and Brymer has assured me She will 
Sail allmost immediately, to save distance I am compel'd to make 
short — but I cannot conclude without first, telhng you my two Sons 
with self are in perfect health by the blessing of God — and with 
every good wish to you they join with my dear Sir. 

Your very Sincere

P.S. I shall leave this same time in February for Boston. — By

recollection of your kind recommendation of me some time since; 
he removed me from Secretary of the Adjutant General of the Fleet 
to be Purser of the Mozelle, (a Sloop of War), at the same time gave 
me two other appointments on Shore at Corsica, since which, he 
has agreeable to wish of Captain Linzee appointed me to the Nemesis, 
the pleasure of which appointment is better felt than describ'd, and 
it adds still more to our pleasure having M"". J. Wooldridge our 2"^ 
Lieut*. Lord Hood's attention to Captain Linzee has been on all 
occasions verj' great, and I am to a certainty confident he is highly 
pleased with his conduct as a Seaman & an Officer. We sail to mor-

and Tisiphone Cap't Turner. 

With earnest prayers for your health I am dear sir your faithfull 
and devoted Servant.

became liable and obliged to pay to the Plaintiff the sum

THE LINZEE FAMILY. 589 

I 

The Crossed Swords. 
(The following statement accompanied the tablet). 

History now concedes the fact that Colonel William Prescott was 
the commander of the American Forces at the Battle of Bunker 
Hill. It is well to bear in mind that this action was not fought with 
the same miUtary regard for details which prevailed at a later period, 
when the army had been thoroughly re-organized, and its manage- 
ment reduced to a definite system. To a certain extent the battle 
was a democratic fight; and every man there having a common 
interest in the struggle did his best to bring about the desired result, 
without much thought of strict military rules. The various orders 
did not always go through regular channels; but it is a matter of 
history that Colonel Prescott was ordered by General Ward to fortify 
Bunker Hill, — or Breed's Hill, which is the same for my purpose. 
The field of operations was on Massachusetts soil, and the command 
naturally would go to a Massachusetts officer. Before the event 
the chief actors never dreamed that on the result would turn the 
history of nations and even of the world; but such was the fact. 
A period of doubt and uncertainty among the patriots followed, 
and it took time to straighten out the lines of future action and to 
fill up the gaps in the plan. 

The Battle proved to be the corner stone on which was founded 
our poUtical government, now a world-wide power. 

Before the action on that memorable Seventeenth, the British 
vessels were moored at various points in front of the Charlestown 
peninsula, where their services might be needed. The sloop-of-war 
" Falcon " was anchored off Moulton's Point, a short distance up 
the Mystic River, above the site of the Navy Yard. Its special 
duty was to cooperate with the " Lively," and thus to cover the 
landing of the English troops. The commander of the " Falcon " 
was Captain John Linzee, and it is to him equally that my story 
relates, as well as to Colonel WilUam Prescott. Three years later, 
on August 8, 1778, his vessel was sunk off Newport, Rhode Island, 
in order to prevent its capture by the French fleet under Admiral 
D'Estaing. The sword carried by the commander of the American 
Forces at the Battle of Bunker Hill, was kept for years in the Pres- 
cott family and was treasured as a priceless relic ; and the same might 
be said of the other sword worn in that action by the captain of the 
" Falcon," equally valued as a family heritage. Forty-five years 
afterward, owing to the vicissitudes of hmnan affairs, the grandson 
of Colonel Prescott, — who was William Hickling Prescott, the dis- 
tinguished author and historian, — became engaged to the grand- 
daughter of Captain Linzee, and was duly married; and thus these 
two emblems of warfare, though not beaten into ploughshares, were 
brought into the same household and turned into silent symbols of 
peace. The time had been when the owners of these weapons would

have used them with a deadly thrust against each other; but com- 
ing down as family heirlooms, through regular channels of descent 
and matrimonial alliance, they lost all hostile spirit and were as 
innocent as children's toys. The peaceful man of letters had the 
two swords placed in a conspicuous position in his library, where they 
hung crossed; and he was always ready to tell the story of these 
ancestral memorials. 

In his opening chapter to " The Virginians," Thackeray, referring 
to the trophies, begins: — " On the library wall of one of the most 
famous writers of America, there hang two crossed swords, which 
his relatives wore in the great War of Independence. The one sword 
was gallantly drawn in the service of the king, the other was the 
weapon of a brave and honoured republican soldier. The possessor 
of the harmless trophy has earned for himself a name alike honoured 
in his ancestors' country and his own, where genius such as his has 
always a peaceful welcome." 

The swords are now in the possession of the Massachusetts His- 
torical Society, where they were given on April 14, 1859; and a full 
account of the presentation is found in the Proceedings (IV. 258- 
266) of the Society under that date. A poem entitled " The Crossed 
Swords," written for the occasion by the Reverend Nathaniel L. 
Frothingham, D.D., also appears in the same volume (pp. 284, 285). 

. . . The tablet, to which the swords are affixed, was given by 
Henry A. Whitney; and its length is about sixty-three inches. 

In the possession of his great grandson, John Torrey Linzee of 
Boston, Mass., rests the battle sword worn by Captain John Linzee, 
commander of the British sloop of war Falcon at the Battle of Bun- 
ker Hill. The sword of Captain Linzee crossed with that of Colonel 
William Prescott, commander of the American forces in that battle, 
on a tablet in the rooms of the Massachusetts Historical Society, 
is his dress sword, which was given by his son John Inman Linzee 
to the historian, William Hickling Prescott, who married Susannah 
Amory, the niece of the said John Inman Linzee, as he desired to 
cross it on the walls of his library w^ith the sword of his grandfather, 
the said Colonel William Prescott. 

Thus these two trophies of war have become trophies of romance, 
and of an united love, ever remindful of the laying aside of ermiity 
between two English speaking people. The thoughtfulness and 
poetic nature of William Hickling Prescott gave birth to this inter- 
national moral hidden in the romance of his marriage, and the swords 
borne by bitter enemies now lie peacefully side by side, representing 
the clasped hands of Great Britain and the United States of America. 

Mr. Gardiner, when he presented the swords to the Massachusetts 
Historical Society, referred to them as, " an emblem, let us hope, of 
perpetual peace between kindred nations ".

From the Life of William Hickling Prescott by 
George Ticknor, Appendix B. 

The Crossed Swords. 

Colonel William Prescott, the grandfather of the historian, 
— died in 1795. Captain John Linzee, grandfather of the histo- 
rian's wife, was born at Portsmouth [should be Portsea], England, 
in 1743, but, establishing himself in the United States after the war 
of the Revolution was over, died at Milton, near Boston, in 1798. 
In process of time, the swords of these two opposing commanders 
came by transmission and inheritance to the historian, and were by 
him arranged, first over one of the bookcases in his quiet study in 
Bedford Street, and afterwards on the cornice of his library in Bea- 
con Street. In either place the sight was a striking one, and gen- 
erally attracted the attention of strangers. Mr. Thackeray, whose 
vigilant eye did not fail to notice it when he visited Mr. Prescott, 
in 1852, thus alludes to it very happily in the opening of his " Vir- 
ginians," published six years later: 

" On the library-wall of one of the most famous writers of America 
there hang two crossed swords, which his relatives wore in the great 
war of Independence. The one sword was gallantly drawn in the 
service of the king, the other was the weapon of a brave and honored 
repubhcan soldier. The possessor of the harmless trophy has earned 
for himself a name alike honored in his ancestors' country and in his 
own, where genius like his has always a peaceful welcome." 

By the thirteenth article of Mr. Prescott's will he provided for 
the disposition of these swords as follows : — 

" The sword which belonged to my grandfather. Colonel William 
Prescott, worn by him in the battle of Bunker Hill, I give to the 
Massachusetts Historical Society, as a curiosity suitable to be pre- 
served among their collections; and the sword which belonged to 
my wife's grandfather. Captain Linzee, of the British Royal Navy, 
who commanded one of the enemy's ships lying off Charlestown 
during the same battle, I give to my wife." 

As Mrs. Prescott, and the other heirs of Captain Linzee, de- 
sired that the swords should not be separated, Mr. Gardiner, who 
was Mr. Prescott's executor, sent them both to the Historical So- 
ciety, accompanied by an interesting letter addressed to the Hon. 
Robert C. Winthrop, its President, and to be found, dated April 
19th, 1859, in the volume of the " Proceedings " of that Society 
pubhshed in 1860, pp. 258-264. 

Resolutions offered by Mr. Winthrop were unanimously adopted, 
directing the swords to be arranged in a conspicuous place in the 
halls of the Society, crossing each other, as they had been crossed 
in Mr. Prescott's library, and with suitable inscriptions setting forth 
their history and the circumstances of their reception. 

A Tablet of black-walnut was, therefore, prepared, to which

leaves; while over them are two shields, leaning against each other, 
and bearing respectively the Prescott and the Linzce arms.

On two separate scrolls is the following inscription: — 

These swords They 

for many years were hung crossed are now preserved 

in the library in a similar position 
of the late eminent historian by the 

WILLIAM HICKLING PRESCOTT MASS. HISTORICAL SOCIETY, 

in token of in memory 

international friendship of the associations 

and with which they wiD be 

family alliance. inseparably connected. 

On the evening of Thursday, April 28, 1859, at a meeting of the 
Society, held at the house of its President, the Hon. Robert C. Win- 
throp, the Rev. N. L. Frothingham — who, at the special meeting 
of the Society, called together by the death of the historian, had in 
apt and beautiful words offered an affectionate tribute to the charac- 
ter of his friend and parishioner — read the following lines, which, 
in words no less apt and touching, give the poetical interpretation of 

The Crossed Swords. 

Swords crossed, — but not in strife! 
The chiefs who drew them, parted by the space 
Of two proud countries' quarrel, face to face 

Ne'er stood for death or life. 

Swords crossed, that never met 
While nerve was in the hands that wielded them; 
Hands better destined a fair family stem 

On these free shores to set. 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 593 

Kept crossed by gentlest bands! 
Emblems no more of battle, but of peace; 
And proof how lovers can grow and wars can cease, 

Their once stern symbol stands. 

It smiled first on the array 
Of marshalled books and friendliest companies; 
And here, a history among histories, 

It still shall smile for aye. 

See that thou memory keep. 
Of him the firm commander; and that other. 
The stainless judge; and him our peerless brother, — 

All fallen now asleep. 

Yet more: a lesson teach. 
To cheer the patriot-soldier in his course. 
That Right shall triumph still o'er insolent Force; 

That be your silent speech. 

Oh, be prophetic too! 
And may those nations twain, as sign and seal 
Of endless amity, hang up their steel, 

As we these weapons do ! 

The archives of the Past, 
So smeared with blots of hate and bloody wrong, 
Pining for peace, and sick to wait so long, 

Hail this meek cross at last. 

Poem of Rev. Dr. N. L. Frothinghara. 

And so was fitly closed up the history of this singular trophy, if 
trophy that can be called which was won from no enemy, and which 
is a memento at once of a defeat that was full of glory, and of triumphs 
in the field of letters more brilliant than those in the fields of war. 

Dr. Wilham Everett in a Prescott oration had the following to 
say on jingoism: 

" There hang now in the Hbrarj^ of the Massachusetts Historical 
Society the swords that Prescott and Linzee wore — , crossed not in 
strife but in peaceful symmetry. There may they hang forever, as 
a symbol that the softening of the rough ages by the disuse of wars 
is not the mere vision of a heathen poet, but indeed the veritable 
song brought down from heaven by the angels; there may they hang 
forever, or rather if ever evil passions on either side of the ocean seek 
to drive us into the sin and crime of war, let them be transferred to 



594 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

the department of state at Washington, where those who conduct 
the diplomacy of the United States, looking at them upon the wall, 
and through the window upon the monument of the Father of his 
Country, may feel their spirits chastened and their souls raised from 
the low swamp of battle to the soaring heights of peace. Then 
let the war god sink into the embrace of all conquering love, and let 
the genius of peace throw over their limbs the resistless network of 
the arts, that all the gods of Olympus may come and behold the 
spectacle of men's claims yielding to their duties, and Moloch pros- 
trated before Jesus." 

The history of Captain John Linzee, of his wife Susanna Iiunan and 
their children, would not be complete without an account of the 
Speakman, Irmian, and Rowe families, particularly the wills of John 
Rowe and his wife Hannah (Speakman) Rowe. The affection of 
the Rowes for their niece, the wife of Captain John Linzee and her 
children, found its inspiration from the encouragement given by 
them to the Captain in his courtship of Sukey the daughter of Ralph 
Inman, when her father opposed their marriage. At the home of 
the Rowes the gallant Captain was given the opportunity to persuade 
the beautiful Sukey. Her letter to her friend Lucy Flucker shows 
that their marriage was a love match.

price shall bear to ninety five P.C. And in order to Ascertain the 
same and fix the principal sum of said legacies it is my desire that

THE LINZEE FAMILY. 601 

Old Land Marks of Middlesex, by S. A. Drake, pp. 187-189. 

" In coming from Charlestown or Lechmere's Point by the old 
county road . . . , and before the day of bridges had created what 
is now Cambridgeport out of the marshes, the first object of interest 
was the farm of Ralph Inman, a well-to-do, retired merchant of the 
capital. His mansion-house and outbuildings formed a small ham- 
let, and stood in the angle of the road as it turned sharp to the right 
and stretched away to the Colleges." 

" The world would not have cared to know who Ralph Inman was 
had not his house become interwoven with the history of the siege 
as the headquarters of that rough, fiery genius, Israel Putnam. It 
could not have been better situated, in a military view, for old Put's 
residence. The General's own regiment and most of the Connecti- 
cut troops lay encamped near at hand in Inman's green fields and 
fragrant pine woods. It was but a short gallop to the commander- 
in-chief's, or to the posts on the river. Remove all the houses that 
now intervene between Inman Street and the Charles, and we see 
that the gallant old man had crouched as near the enemy as it was 
possible for him to do, and lay like a watch-dog at the door of the 
American lines." 

" Ralph Inman was, of course, a royalist. Nature does not more 
certainly abhor a vacuum than does your man of substance a revo- 
lution. Strong domestic ties bound him to his allegiance. He was 
of the Church of England too, and his associates were cast in the 
same tory mould with himself. He had been a merchant in Boston 
in 1764, and the agent of Sir Charles Frankland when that gentleman 
went abroad. He kept his coach and his liveried servants for state 
occasions, and the indispensable four-wheeled chaise universally 
affected by the gentry of his day for more ordinary use. If he was 
not a Scotsman by descent, we have not read aright the meaning of 
the thistle, which Inman loved to see around him. 

" The house had a plain outside, unostentatious, but speaking 
eloquently of solid comfort and good cheer within. It was of wood, 
of three stories, with a pitched roof. From his veranda Inman had 
an unobstructed outlook over the meadows, the salt marshes, and 
across the bay, to the town of Boston. What really claim our ad- 
miration about this estate were the trees by which it was glorified, 
and of which a few noble elms have been spared. Approaching 
such a house, as it lay environed by shrubbery and screened from the 
noonday sun by its giant guardians, with the tame pigeons perched 
upon the parapet and the domestic fowls cackling a noisy refrain 
in the barn-yard, you would have said, ' Here is good old-fashioned 
thrift and hospitality; let us enter,' and you would not have done 
ill to let instant execution follow the happy thought." 

" Besides his tory neighbors — and at the time of which we write 
what we now call Old Cambridge was parceled out among a dozen 



602 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

of these — Inman was a good deal visited by the loyal faction of the 
town. The officers of his Majesty's army and navy liked to ride 
out to Inman's to dine or sup, and one of them lost his heart there." 

" John Linzee, captain of H.M. ship Beaver, met with Sukey 
Inman (Ralph's eldest daughter) in some royalist coterie, — as like 
as not at the house of her bosom friend, Lucy Flucker, — and found 
his heart pierced through and through by her bright glances. He 
struck his flag, and, being incapable of resistance, became Sukey's 
lawful prize. He came with Dalrymple, Montague, and his brother 
officers ostensibly to sip Ralph's mulled port or Vidania, but really, 
as we may beheve, to see the daughter of the house. For some 
unknown cause the father did not favor Linzee's suit. There was 
an aunt whom Sukey visited in town, and to whose house the gallant 
captain had the open sesame, but who manoeuvered, as only aunts 
in 1772 (and they have not forgot their cunning) knew how, to keep 
the lovers apart. 

" But John Linzee was no faint-heart, and he married Sukey 
Inman. George Inman, her brother, entered the British army. 
Linzee commanded the Falcon at the battle of Bunker Hill, where 
he did us all the mischief he could, and figured elsewhere on our 
coasts. In 1789 he happened again to cast anchor in Boston Har- 
bor, and opened his batteries this time with a peaceful salute to the 
famous stars and stripes flying from the Castle. It is well known 
that Prescott, the historian, married a granddaughter of Captain 
Linzee." 

" The interior of Inman's house possessed no striking features. 
It was roomy, but so low-studded that you could easily reach the 
ceihngs with your hand when standing upright. The deep fireplaces, 
capacious cupboards, and secret closets, were all there. Our last 
visit to the mansion was to find it divided asunder, and being rolled 
away to another part of the town, where we have no wish to foUow. 
It was not a pleasant sight to see this old house thus mutilated, with 
its halls agape and its cosey bedchambers literally turned out of 
doors, — a veritable wreck ashore." 

" Inman was arrested in 1776. He had been of the king's coun- 
cil, and an addresser of Hutchinson. He became a refugee in Boston, 
and his mansion passed into the custody of the Provincial Congress, 
who assigned it to General Putnam." 

(N.E.H. & G.R. XXV: 231-2). 

On the back of a paper written on the three other sides, and used 
as an envelope, are the following words: " Capt". John Linzee, N°. 
8 Great Geo^ Street, Plymouth, 

Capt. Davis Boston packet." 

Then in the handwriting of Capt. John Linzee is this memorandum: 

" A Copy of M'. Inmans will in the year 1788." 

Only an abstract will be given here : 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 603 

The will of Ralph Inman of Cambridge, Co. Midd. Esq'., mentions, 
my Son in law John Linzee, and my son George; Daughter Susanna 
Linzee and her children; all real estate in Cambridge or elsewhere to 
be sold; friend Herman Brimmer, sole exor. Made 5 May 1788. 
In presence of Thomas Crafts, Stephen Cleverly, James Liswell. 

Codicil: 16 May 1788, mentions son George and his children. 
In presence of Benjamin Waterhouse, John Haskins, Jn°. Rowe. 
Proved 18 July 1788. 

The important fact brought out by this will, is the certainty that 
Capt. John Linzee was residing at No. 8 Great George Street, Ply- 
mouth, Devon, England, in 1788, so that he can be the John Linzee 
Esq. of Plymouth and others, who administered on the 2 Jan. 1788, 
to the estate of John Linzee Esq. late of the parish of Stoke Damerel, 
Archdeaconry of Totnes, which is recorded in the registry at Exeter, 
England. 

No. 8 Great George Street is still the same old house, only the 
front is altered into a grand shop; the present owner has lately 
bought it (previous to 1910), it formerly belonged to a family of the 
name of Sheppard. In a directory of 1812, a Major Lindsey, R.A., 
lived in the house. (Statement by Mrs. Lewis Linzee). 

From accounts of Captain John Linzee with Herman Brimmer on 
the settlement of Ralph Inman's estate, the Captain purchased 
certain sundries belonging to the said estate, to the amount of £289. 
14. 0., consisting of £85. 2. 8. of household furniture, and £204. 11.4. 
of silverware, and other items, instead of the £300. 0. 0., advanced 
to George Inman. 

The account also discloses Capt. John Linzee, as a bon vivant, 
and entertainer.

Linzee had been actively employed in the Royal Navy from his

608 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

John Linzee (118) was Captain of the Falcon from the 13 Oct. 
1774 until after July 1776. His son Samuel Hood Linzee (120) was 
his captain's servant and senior clerk from 22 Oct. 1774 to the 30 
Apr. 1776, which began his naval career before Samuel was a year 
old. It is improbable that the boy was on board the Falcon, with 
his father, at the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775. 



Admiralty Records. 

Samuel Hood Linzee was a Lieutenant the 21 July 1790, Com- 
mander the 5 Nov. 1793, Captain the 8 Mar. 1794, Rear Admiral 
the 12 Aug. 1812, Vice Admiral the 12 Aug. 1819, and died the 2 
Sept. 1820. 

The naval records at Portsmouth, Hants, England, show that 
Samuel Hood Linzee was made a Post Captain the 8 Mar. 1794, an 
Admiral in 1812, and died Sept. 1820. 

Samuel Hood Linzee became post Captain the 8 Mar. 1794, Rear 
Admiral of the Blue the 12 Aug. 1812, Rear Admiral of the White 
the 4 Dec. 1812, Rear Admiral of the Red the 4 June 1813, and Vice- 
Admiral of the Blue the 12 Aug. 1819. (The Royal Navy, by Wm. 
Laird Clowes, V : 42) . 

The Nemesis (28), Capt. Samuel Hood Linzee had been captured 
on 9th Dec, by the Sensible and Sardine in the Neutral port of 
Smyrna where her captors were blockaded by Capt. Samuel Hood 
with two frigates till Ganteaume's squadron forced him to retire. 
The Nemesis was then taken into Tunis by the Sardine in Jan. 1796. 
(Navy Records Soc, The Spencer Papers, 1794-1801, II: 11). 

The Zealous (74), Captain S. H. Linzee was one of the fleet under 
Rear Admiral George Campbell which sailed from England to the 
harbour of Port Royal in 1802, and returned to England in May of 
that year. (Recollections of James Anthony Gardner, p. 228-9), 



The Naval History of Great Britain, by William James. 

^ (I: 275) Capt. Samuel Hood Linzee was, with his frigate 
" Nemesis " of 28 guns, captured by the French frigate " Sensible " 
and Corvette " Sardine ", in the neutral port of Smyrna the 9 Dec. 
1795, while lying at anchor, without any opposition from Captain 
Lmzee, beyond a remonstrance at the illegality of the measure. 

They were in turn blockaded by the British frigate Aigle of 38 
guns, under Capt. Samuel Hood, and the frigate Cyclops of 28 guns, 
under Captain Wilham Hotham. 

The Nemesis was recaptured by the English, the 9 Mar. 1796. 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 609 

(III: 136) On the 26 Jan. 1801, at 8 a.m., lat. 45° N., long. 12° W., 
the British 12 pounder, 36 gun frigate, Oiseau, Captain Samuel 
Hood Linzee, fell in with and chased the French 36 gun frigate 
D^daigneuse, bound from Cayenne to Rochefort with despatches. 
The Oiseau continued the pursuit alone until noon on the 27th, when 
Cape Finisterre came in sight, the British 18 pounder, 36 gun frig- 
ates Sirius and Amethyst, Captains Richard King and John Cook, 
joined in the chase. The French frigate then hauled down her 
colors to the Oiseau. The Dedaigneuse was a fine vessel of 897 tons, 
and was added to the British Navy. 



The History of the British Navy, by C. D. Younge. 

The right to search the vessels of neutral nations carrjang mer- 
chandise belonging to an enemy, caused England, in 1801, to wage 
war against the Northern Confederacy which was formed by the 
Russian Emperor, Paul. Russia, Prussia, Denmark and Sweden 
were in alliance against England, with France in the background, 
to oppose the right of search. 

Pitt at once despatched an Enghsh fleet under the command of Sir 
Hyde Parker on the London of 98 guns, with Admiral Nelson on the 
St. George of 98 guns, and Rear Admiral Graves on the Defiance of 
74 guns, as second and third in command, and Rear-Admiral Totty 
and Captain S[amuel] H[ood] Linzee on the Zealous of 74 guns. 
Among the frigates was the Desir^e of 40 guns commanded by Cap- 
tain George Inman. 

The account of the Battle of Copenhagen, which was fought on the 
2 Apr. 1801, is given by Younge in his history; a more vivid de- 
scription can be found in Southey's life of Nelson. 



The Naval History of Great Britain, by William James. 

(IV: 2) On the 22 Feb. 1805, Captain Samuel Hood Linzee, 
commanded the Warrior of 74 guns, and Captain Henry Inman, the 
Triumph of 74 guns; they were in the fleet of Sir Robert Calder on 
the Prince of Wales of 98 guns, when he engaged a combined French 
and Spanish fleet off Ferrol and Cape Finisterre. 

Again in 1805, Captain Linzee commanded the Ajax of 74 guns 
in Sir Robert Calder's fleet, in an action with the French fleet in the 
North Atlantic, when the latter was defeated and captured. (Au- 
thority for this statement is unknown) . 

(IV: 284) On the 19 July 1807, Captain Samuel Hood Linzee, 
commanded the Maida of 74 Guns, one of Admiral Lord Gambler's 
fleet which in Sept. 1807 bombarded Copenhagen and captured the 
Danish fleet. 



610 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

Capt. S. H, Linzee sat on the Court martial, on board the Gladia-

John W. Linzee Esq. : — 
Dear Sir: — 

In the Naval History of Great Britain from 1793 down to 1827, I 
trace Capt. Samuel Hood Linzee in various engagements from 1795 
to 1807, but never in command of the " Thunderer ". When an 
Admiral he may have had his Flag on board of her, without the fact 
being noted in history, unless she had been engaged in a fight. His 
Flag was on board the " Dreadnaught " when George Golding was 
with him, and when he left her, he procured Golding's discharge 
that he might accompany him as his servant. Thus you can per- 
ceive it was between 1807 and 1812 0), that the Admiral visited 
Boston. Golding's discharge is among my papers, its date will 
give the exact year i^). When I find it I will let you know. The 
last time I was in London, 1836, 1 was on board the " Dreadnaught ", 
anchored in the Thames, and fitted as an hospital for merchant sea- 
men. I served before the mast in the British Navy myself, and picked 
up from old seamen some of the yarns, I have from time to time, 
sketched in the newspapers. In the Index of James' Naval History, 
volume 6, you can trace the fighting scrapes of Capt. Linzee. I 
believe his family is of Scottish origin. 

Yours Truly 

Duncan McLean. 



(') Letter of Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee to his sister Mrs. Hannah Rows 
Amory, dated, Plymouth, 10 Mar. 1818 proves that he had not visited 
Boston after 1791. 

(^) George Golding was for fifty years in an insurance office in Boston; 
he was dragged out of his father's house in Hastings when a boy 10 years 
old and was sent on board the Dreadnaught three decker. Admiral Linzee 
liked his appearance and made him his servant.

9 of May at Florence, being then on my journey to this place where 
I arrived yesterday having travelled Eighteen hundred Miles. I

passed through the Cities of Venice, Vienna, Dresden, Prague & 
Berlin, 6 of the Capitals of Europe. I leave this tomorrow for 
England in a Packet boat, on my arrival I shall not fail to write 
M' Amory, having only time by this (3pportunity to say I am well 
after a long & fatigucing Journey having travelled Day & Night 
since the first of May when I quitted Leghorn. 

A ship sailed yesterday for Boston, I accidentally met the Com- 
mander of her as he was leaving the town, therefore had not time to 
write my Father or yourself, but did our Aunt a few words and sent 
her my miniature Picture, which I intended to have had sett in 
London, had I not met with so favourable an Opportunity of for- 
warding it, I also enclosed her my narrative of the Capture of my 
Ship & Sentence of the Court Martial held on me. I mentioned in 
my Letter having a Picture for you I greatly lament not having met 
a favourable Conveyance of sending it to America while in the Medi- 
teranean. It is a View of Constantinople done in Needle work on 
Silk ; I was obliged to leave it with most of my cloathes with Admiral 
Linzee to forward to England by the P' Man of War should it not 
fall a second time into the hands of the Enemy, I shall send it to 
you by the P' ship bound to Boston after I receive it. I wrote our 
Aunt & yourself on the P' of April from Corsica congratulating you 
on your Marriage which I sincerely hope will prove a happiness to 
yourself & Husband. I suppose Susan is grown a fine girl, she must 
write me or I shall conclude she has forgot her friends in England. 

You observe my dear Hannah (you hope to see me & my Lady) 
as yet I have not one or have I the least Idea of Marrying while the 
War lasts or perhaps this many Years. 

I shall reserve this subject for a future period. The business I 
once spoke I believe will never take place, at present time will not 
admit of entering into the Particulars, you may show this to M" 
Rowe & my Father, both I have wrote. 

With best wishes for the Health & Happiness of yourself & Hus- 
band I remain with love to Susan, Rose & Sally my dear Hannah

I cannot allow the Nero belonging to Boston to sail from this 
place for America without informing my dear Sister of my being in 
this part of the World, with the Command of a fine Ship of 66 Guns, 
that was taken from the Dutch not long since, I left England in 
Feb^ in the Trusty as I wrote about the time of my sailing, & ar- 
rived here on the 5 of May; since which I have not been out of my 
Ship, therefore cannot attempt to give you any account of the place 
or its Inhabitants except by report, which says the women are very 
handsome, however as my Love days, are now over therefore their 
beauty is of little consequence to me, be assured my dear Hannah at 
the end of the War I shall visit my Family a Bachelor, I need not 
add the anxious moments their long absence has occasioned. 

In the Nero there are two Ladies M" Fay and Miss [blank] they 
dine with me to day & all the passengers which is six, they are going 
to Boston, should you see them they can give you every Information 
relative to myself; they have been mostly with me since their arrival 
& they appear to be very respectable people; I intend writing M'

you health & happiness, believe me my dear Hannah ever affectionate

Letter from Captain Samuel Hood Linzee to Mrs. Hannah 

ROWE. 

Greenwich, July 16, 1800 
I have scarcely spirits to acquaint my ever dear & much beloved 
Aunt of my arrival in England about six weeks since; after an ab- 
sence of 3 years & a half, but I am much concerned to say, the change 
of climate has not had the desired or expected effect on the health 
of my dearest Mrs. Linzee who I am sorry to say is extremely ill; 
& I fear approaching very fast to her dissolution; but I will not dwell 
on this melancholy subject of which I have written fully to my Sister 
Susan. I have been anxious to hear of the health of my dearest 
Aunt; not having reC* a letter from Boston this many Months; in- 
deed only one or two since my leaving England from the neglect of 
my Agent. I mentioned in my last to M'' Amory of having settled 
M" Linzee at Greenwich, to be near, and under the protection of 
Lord Hood, whose civility & attention to her has been beyond what 
my pen can express. I trust I am, & shall ever feel greatful for their 
great goodness & affection toward me. I still Command the Oiseau 
& expect to be ready for Sea in about 2 Months, but to what part of 
the World I am destined to, God only knows, or will it in a short 
time be of any consequence or the War being over (of which there is 
no appearance) I shall visit the Children of my dearest & never to 
be forgotten Mother; I am much pleased with Susan's letter, 'tis 
the first I ever rec^ from her, but hope she will continue to gratify 
my most ardent desire, & write by every opportunity. My dear 
Aunt may remember about 2 Years since having heard of my taking 
a valuable Ship, her fate is not yet decided, or is it determined whether 
I shall reap the benefit of my labors, however, the general Opinion 
is in my favor, a few weeks will now determine. As to news, Eng- 
land has but little to boast off, she groans under a weight of taxes & 
half its Inhabitants are starving.

recollect makes the 4**'; in my letter to M'' Amory I have mentioned 
my intention of visiting America as soon as my private & public 
situation will admit, I hope it will be some time this winter. You

ever to be remembered mother is very great; Oh! Hannah had she

have been. I look forward with much pleasure to a domestic life, 
I only hope that my profession will enable me to live near my sis- 
ters; tho I have been separated from them 12 years, yet I believe 
my affection for my family is stronger, than if I had always been 
their companion. 

I feel much at Johns silence, to his hand writing I am a stranger

Letter from Captain Samuel Hood Linzee to Thomas C. Amory, 

Esq. 

London, July 6, 1804. 
My dear Mr. Amory : 

I accidentally met our good friend M' Parker a few days since, who 
gave me the very unpleasant intelligence of our good Aunt Rowe 
being very much indisposed, however I trust in God she is perfectly 
restored to health, & that it will please the Almighty to prolong her 
life for many years. I was happy to hear that my dearest Sister 
Amory & her family with my other Sisters were perfectly well, be 
assured it gives me great pleasure to hear from Boston, I lament 
much that my sisters will not indulge me with a letter now & then, 
but having so often solicited them without effect, have endeavoured 
to reconcile myself to their silence and my own disappointment. To 
say I feel grateful for your correspondence & your kindness in a 
thousand instances is I trust needless, indeed my dear M' Amory I 
am thankful beyond expression, and only hope you will ever consider 
me worthy of your friendship; I anticipate a peace with much 
pleasure as it will enable me to visit my family in Boston. I am 
now soHciting for a ship tho am not very desirous of having one till 
after my wife is confined, as from having had two dead children I 
am doubtful how it will terminate. I have not heard from Boston 
these many Months, when you write, direct to me Penzance Corn- 
wall, my letters will then arrive safe, as should I go to sea M" Linzee 
will receive them. I understand there was one for me by the Salem 
but it is lost from being directed to my Agents.

Letter from Captain Samuel Hood Linzee to Thomas C. Amory, 

Esq. 

Penzance, January 2, 1807. 
My dear M^ Amory: 

Your letters dated the 15"" of Nov'., 21 of Dec"", reached me ten 
days since, giving an account of the sale of the Estate in Essex street 
for 11000 D' to be paid by instal', with interest; as I have so often 
mentioned, I am perfectly satisfied with whatever you think proper 
to do, being well assured it will be for the general good, I therefore 
think it unnecessary to repeat any wish I may have relative to the 
disposal of M" Rowe's Estate, for in fact I have not a wish, but must 
ever approve; respecting poor old Turner I am glad you thought 
it right to make his end comfortable, or rather to assist him in his 
last moments. I believe he was ever faithful to his Mistress, & 
therefore had great claim on us. I am truly glad to find myself 
mistaken in my ideas respecting Rose, I hope soon to have the pleasure 
of congratulating her on being married, which God grant may prove 
to her a blessing. 

I am now come to the sorrowful task of communicating the melan- 
choly & irreparable loss I have sustained, it pleased the Almighty 
disposer of all things, to take from me my Child on Friday the 26 
of last month at the age of four months, his death was caused by 
vaccination or rather in consequence of an eruption that followed it, 
at the age of 14 weeks my child was vaccinated, at that period the 
picture of health, & every probability of his being a blessing to us; 
but at the expiration of a fortnight after inocculation a most violent 
eruption came over his legs, arms, face, and continued for three 
weeks or a month before it became at the heighth, or showed any 
signs of turning, which was accompanied with a fever and latterlj' 
the Throat, which brought an end to the Dear Baby existence, 
leaving myself & his mother a martyr to grief. When you recollect 
that we have lost four Children you will I am confident sympathize 
with us on our melancholy fate, & we feel it the more from the Child 
being born perfectly healthy and remaining so till the time I have 
mentioned. I have this day performed the last office for him, you

must therefore not expect much entertaimnent from my letter, few 
believe that my affliction is just my last letter was by M' Miller, 
Sally Spekman's husband. I am so far removed from the great 
world that I have but little chance of seeing any of rny American 
friends, unless the easterly wind obhges them to put into Mounts 
Bay. I am astonished to hear that Jacob Rowe's children should 
owe the Estate so large a sum of money. I suppose they have my 
Aunts house, pasturem &c.; I have some thoughts of endeavouring 
to obtain six months leave this Summer to visit Boston, tho am 
doubtful how far my situation will suffer me to apply for it, but you 
must not expect me till you see me; much depends on the health 
of Mrs. Linzee as well the situation of this Country. 

Your old friend Francis Coffin is my neighbour, he has six fine 
Child. & a wife that produces one yearly. The Admiral is second 
in command at Portsmouth, he wishes much to get to Halifax, but I 
fear he will not succeed. My paper bids me conclude wishing you &

says I am to be one of our Baltic Fleet, at any rate you shall know 
where I am; all my prospects of \'isiting Boston is again at end, in-

Peace is restored to us. I have given in charge of Captain Stedman 
of the Salem a small box containing a velvet Pelise as a Wedding 
present for Sally, which I hope will reach her in safety, it is very 
handsome & fashionable. Should you have occasion to make remit- 
tances of Interest to me, be so good as to make the bills payable to 
Mrs. Sam' Hood Linzee or her order, as God knows in what part of

I beg you will continue to address your letters, which she will for- 
ward to me. I wrote you a few days ago requesting that you would 
make my remittances payable to M" Sam. Hood Linzee or her Or- 
der; which will enable her to negotiate the bills. I can only repeat 
that you have full power to act for me in every respect as you would 
for yourself. I only wish the Interest of my property to be remitted ; 
and not on any account any part of the principal, the whole amount 
of which I intend keeping in America lest I should ever be inchned

respecting the temporary transfer of 2500L, but which I hope now 
there will be no occasion for. It is my intention so soon as our 
family concerns are finally arranged to have whatever property may 
remain of mine in America remitted by bill to this Country, as it is 
the only certain method of preventing confiscation in case of war 
between the two nations, and will in the end save you much trouble. 

I have a fine little girl called Emily after her mother she is now 
6 months old & will I hope live and do well. I learn from an Ameri- 
can ship that was taken into port that our Brother Ralp was spoken 
with 3 weeks since bound to Leghorn, I fear he will be detained as 
Leghorn is a blockaded Port, tho I have no doubt but the necessary 
insurance is made so as to cover his losses.

My dear M' Amory: 

Many months are elapsed since I had the pleasure of receiving a 
letter from you or my dear Sisters. On my leaving in England in 
Sept. I wrote to Boston but was then uncertain as to my destination, 
indeed I was in hopes when I laid off the helmet to have been allowed 
to remain in the enjoyment of my domestic comforts but alas I fear 
such a prospect is as yet distant; another year I suppose will give 
me the rank of an Admiral when I may possibly expect a release 
from my labours, at any rate for a short time. I have been married 
nearly eight years & have not passed three with my family, & to my 
Brothers & Sisters I am certainly a stranger, but I look forward with 
pleasure to the period (however distant) that will enable me to visit 
them. 

Has any thing been done respecting Rowe's debt to our good old 
Aunt, I think that it is time it should be settled. I hope soon to hear 
from you, be so good as to direct to me as before Penzance, Corn- 
wall, where M" Linzee remains, as our stay at Lisbon is precarious

My dear M'. Amory: 

A vessel sails for Boston in a day or two, I will not let her go with- 
out saying that I am well, & that I shall be truly glad to hear that 
you & my dearest sisters and their numerous offsprings are equally 
so. The last accounts I rec** from Boston was from our Brother 
Tilden dated 2 June 1810 before I left Cadiz, but I did not receive 
it until I arrived in England when I immediately wrote him. I sup- 
pose by this the Rowes will be thinking of coming to a settlement 
with us. I think that it is high time they should if they possess in 
them honour or honesty for I believe it is nearly five years since 
M" Rowe died. You will much oblige me if you would send me a 
statement of what property I have in that Country including my 
share of what may be coming to me from the Rowe's account. If 
I recollect there is a very small sum in the Stock which was left by 
my father, but I have been so much at sea that I really am perfectly 
ignorant of my concerns especially as all my papers respecting my 
American property is with M" Linzee. I will also thank you to 
write to me Penzance as my stay at Lisbon is very uncertain. I 
have wrote Mr. Tilden by this conveyance. When I last heard

As I could not get the bill for 150 dolls, cashed unless I made it 

200 I have altered the sum as the difference of fifty dollars can not 

be an object. I leave this for England in a day or two & hope to 

hear from you as I am anxious to know how my account stands in 

that Country. As this is on business I shall only add my love & 

best wishes to my Sisters & family, & believe me my dear M' Amory 

very truly I am ever your

Letter from Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee to Mrs. Hannah 

RowE Amory. 

Penzance, July 3, 1815. 
My dear M". Amory: — 

Su- Isaac Coffin was the bearer of many letters from me to my 
dearest relatives in America, but as his movements appeared so un- 
certain I defer'd writing you until the Packet which sails in a day or 
two for New York. My last account from Boston was dated in 
March; Sally mentions your having met with an accident, before 
this I hope you are recovered and that you continue with your chil- 
dren to enjoy uninterrupted happiness, time has no doubt reconciled 
to your mind the ever harder loss you have experienced, but not even 
time can make up to us all for being deprived of the friendship & 
service of your ever to be remembered husband M' Amory, believe 
my dearest Hannah altho years have separated us, that I felt all a 
Brother on such an occasion could do. You are blessed with a 
lovely family; your children cannot fail of giving you comfort under 
your heavy affliction. I thank your Son Thomas Rowe for his letter 
to me dated 5 of March, tell him by the next Packet I will answer 
it. I shall regularly write to some of you by every New York Packet. 
I was in hope to have been able to have visited Boston before this 
but alas circumstances have prevented, when Peace is restored I hope 
to see you all, beUeve the Children of my dearest Mother are most 
dear to me. M" Linzee whom you must recollect as being Wool- 
dridge is anxious to pay you a visit, but her health is bad & she has 
a young family, which compels me to object to her undertaking the 
voyage. You are often the subject of my thoughts & be assured all 
near & dear to my heart. I have two Boys & a Girl & soon expect 
an increase, four I have lost. I wrote Susan your Daughter by Sir 
Isaac, but I dare say none of the letters will reach you as he is very

thoughtless. God bless you my dear Sister, give my love to all & 
believe me your affectionate Brother 

S. H. Linzee 

My Daughter who is 8 years old desires her duty to you & her 
Aunts & love to her Cousins.

Penzance, March 8*^, 1816. 
My dear Sister: 

Captain Coffin of the Navy being on his departure for America & 
on a visit to Boston, I avail myself of the opportunity of writing by 
him to say that myself, wife & four children are well. M" Linzee 
was brought to bed of a fine Girl on the 17 of Dec', making my num- 
ber two of each sex; the baby called after our dear departed Mother 
Susannah Inman, she is a fine child, & I hope will live to be as amiable 
a character; oh my dearest Sister,! know look forward to the happi- 
ness of seeing you all in the Spring 1817, this year I am about to 
move my family to the City of Exeter, for the advantage of getting 
Masters' for my eldest Girl Emily, & two boys one of which is 8 
years old & the other 4, my daughter is nearly nine; a clever girl, 
& the Image of her Mother whom as Emily Wooldridge you may 
remember. I shall certainly see you all in 1817, early in the Spring; 
my health from my wound is not very good & I think it will shorten 
my days; however we must submit to Providence; I have not heard 
from Boston for many months & am anxious to have some accounts, 
believe that I shall ever regret the distance fate has placed us from 
each other, & all from the imprudence of our Father, however it 
is useless & wrong to reflect on those who are no more. M''^ Linzee 
& my children desire their Love to you, their Aunts, & all their Cous- 
ins, & often say how they long to see them ; but I fear to move my 
Family which is now large would be impossible. M" Linzee flatters 
herself she will accompany me to Boston, but her health is delicate 
& I fear she would never outlive the voyage or support the absence 
from her Children. Now my dear Sister Amory beUeve that I look

Sisters & Brothers John & Ralph & be assured I am your affectionate

Letter from Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee to Mrs. Hannah 

Rowe Amory. 

Plymouth, 10*'' March 1818. 
My dearest Sister: — 

Twenty six years elapsed the 26 of last Dec' last, since I took my 
leave of you, a time too long to reflect on; but my dearest Hannah 
allow me to assure you, that my affection & love for you, & my Sis- 
ters was so early implanted in my heart, by our beloved & ever re- 
gretted Mother, at an early age; that our long separation has not 
deprived me of those feelings. My constant correspondence with 
you truly good & much beloved M" Amory kept alive every feeling 
of love & gratitude, & your amiable daughter has by her affectionate 
letters increased my particular esteem for her. M' Cunningham's 
letter containing the happiness & the unanimity of my Brothers & 
Sisters has given me the most grateful satisfaction, & under the mis- 
fortune of my distance from America, & long absence from those with 
whom only I am connected in the world, has been the greatest 
comfort; I therefore hope he will continue his correspondence. 

Since I quitted Boston, I have been constantly at sea & separated 
from M" Linzee 10 years out of sixteen we have been married, the 
only time of our living together, has been these last three years, 
during which period her health has been very uncertain, having 
suffered severely from her repeated confinements; our family has 
been nine children, six Boys & three Girls, four of the former dead, 
so we have five, the eldest Emily 10 years & a half; a Boy nine & 
half, called Sam Hood; another John after our father 5 & ^; and a 
Girl Susan Inman after our Mother nearly three; the youngest a 
Girl two months. All my Children resemble our Mother, & my 
Emily is very like M" Tilden. I do not exactly know your number 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 625 

or their names, Miss Amory will tell me in her next, also the number 
Rose has; I am sorry to hear that she does not enjoy good health; 
I sincerely hope that you do; & that it will please God to spare your 
valued Ufe to the age of our good old Aunt. I hope it will be in my 
power to see you, it must depend on the health of M" Linzee & 
when she is restored to it. I shall undertake the voyage in the early 
part of the Spring of another year. Possibly you may recollect her 
as Emily Wooldridge; from our earliest age we were acquainted, & 
with her Father I lived after my return from America to England. 
M" L. has only one sister, & that is my only connection, so that I am 
perfectly solus, without a relation in England, you cannot therefore 
but believe that my Mother's children share with my wife & my own 
all my love & affection. 

M" Linzee unites with me in sentiments of true regards & esteem, 
& best love to my Sisters & their Husbands & to their Children. To 
yourself my dearest M" Amory accept all a heart can express, & 
say to my niece I shall ever esteem her; beheve me faithfully & 
sincerely your affectionate Brother 

Sam' Hood Linzee. 

P.S. As John & Ralph are stated by M"" Cunningham to be 
abroad, I shall write them about the time I think they will return. 
Say to M*^ Fitch that I shall write him or my Sister Rose by the 
next month Packet.

John Inman Linzee commenced his career as a midshipman at the 
age of nine on the frigate Penelope commanded by his father; it 
was the first British man-of-war after the revolution, to fire a salute 
to the Stars and Stripes in New England waters on the 9 Sept. 1790. 

" John Inman Linzee's Certificate for serving on board His Majes- 
ty's Ship Penelope from 9 Nov. 1790 to 23 Sept. 1791. To be taken

The above statement is in the handwriting of Capt. John Linzee 
and the certificate is signed by him. On the other side of the paper 
is the following in another's handwriting: 



628 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

" These are to Certify the Principal Officers and Commissioners of 
His Majesty's Navy. 

That Mr. John Inman Linzce, serv'd as able Seaman on board 
His Majesty's Ship the Penelope, from the 9th of Novemr. 1790, to 
the date hereof; during which time he behaved with diligence and 
Sobriety, and was always obedient to Command. 

Given under my hand on board the said Ship in Halifax Harbor 
the 23d Sepr. 1791." 

[Signed] John Linzee. 

Capt. John Linzee resigned from the British Navy in 1792, when 
his son John Inman Linzee also left the British service and went to 
school in Boston, Mass. After completing his education, he entered 
as an apprentice in the offices of his brother-in-law, Mr. Thomas C. 
Amory, until his majority. In the year 1806 he took out his first 
naturalization papers which we will quote: 

" Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

To all people to whom these presents shall come. Greeting: 
Know Ye, that at a Court of Common Pleas begun and holden 
at Boston, within and for the County of Suffolk on the first 
Tuesday of July in the Year one thousand eight hundred & six. 

John Inman Linzee of Boston in the County of Suffolk Merchant, 
was admitted to become a Citizen of the United States, according to 
the Act of Congress in such case made and provided — 

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed 
the seal of said Court at Boston aforesaid, this eighteenth day of 
August, in the Year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and 
six, and in the thirty first Year of the Independence of the United 
States of America. 

Jno. Tucker, Clerk." 

His final papers were signed on 22 May 1810 by the same Clerk. 

After his marriage in 1807, he became a member of the Boston 
Episcopal Charitable Society on the 24th of Apr. 1810. From 1810 
to 1818 he made several voyages as supercargo to Mediteri'anean 
ports, as shown from letters of his dated Gibraltar 10 Mar. 1818 and 
4 Apr. 1818, addressed to his brother-in-law, John B. Fitch of Boston. 
In one of those letters he stated that he intended to sail from that 
port direct to the Canary Islands. 

Finally, he resigned from private business and entered the office 
of the Treasurer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, from which 
he retired after a number of years of service in the year 1837. 

In 1857 his Golden Wedding was celebrated, which was about the 
first celebration of such an event in Boston. Many friends gathered 
at his residence, on which occasion his first grandson, John Torrey 
Linzee, was christened in Boston, and on the same day his second

1767-1812 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 629 

grandson, Lewis Linzee, was christened in Calcutta, India. The 
occasion was noticed in verse. 



The Golden Wedding. 
19 May 1857. 

When Time has spread his pinions 

O'er many fleeting years 
And filled wide earth's dominions 

With doubts and hopes and fears, 

And trusting souls, embracing 

The fondest, purest ties 
All severed while enlacing. 

Recall him as he flies. 

With prayers and supplication 
For those whose race is run. 

Still feel that consolation 
Is yet beneath the sun. 

On these a bright May morning 

Diffuses o'er and o'er 
Its balm and rosy dawning 

At one old friendly door. 

They ne'er forget the greetings 

Of far and distant days, 
The welcomes and repeatings 

Of ever pleasant lays. 

They count both oft and many 
The bright and genial smiles 

Which well compare with any 
In grace and charms and wiles. 

They ponder on this kindness 
Wherever they may roam 

And should not, without blindness, 
Pass the threshold of a home, 

Where fifty years have striven 
In vain to harden hearts 

So well prepared by Heaven 
In all excelhng parts, — 



630 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

Without a word revealing, 

A prescience from above, 
Which o'er the bosom stealing 

Gives tenderness and love. 

Then let them ere they enter, 

In sweet simplicity. 
The Golden Wedding's center. 

Whisper — Benedicite. 

One of the Barclays. 

Verses written by Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis on the celebration of 
Mrs. John Inman Linzee's Golden Wedding, 19 May 1857. 



The Golden Wedding. 
May 19th 1857. 

You stand among your friends to-day. 

As once before you stood. 
When Love's bright torch illumed the way. 

In youth and maidenhood. 

The sunset of your life has come, 

But not with it the gloom, 
Though fifty years have passed away, 

You have not lost your bloom. 

That graves itself upon your heart, 

As erst upon your face, 
Though fifty years have passed away. 

There Time has left no trace. 

No trace but to imprint itself, 

Upon the hearts of friends. 
With touches that old Time defy, 

And only goodness lends. 

And he the lover, husband, friend, 
To whom your vows were given, 

Is here with love and faith to lend. 
Aid in the path to Heaven. 

Together you have trod the path. 

Oft full of toil and pain 
Together have you thanked your God, 

When light has shone again. 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 631 

And now as comes this " golden year ", 

So few are blest to see, 
And love and friendship join to cheer 

And to rejoice with thee. 

Another tie has come to bind 

Your hearts in fuller joy, 
This day to the baptismal font 

Your son brings his first boy. 

And doubly is this joy your own 

For far beyond the sea. 
Another son this festival 

Has shared for love of thee. 

Another child to make this day 

More blest of heaven and earth 
At the same time you celebrate 

Received a Christian's birth. 

Though glorious is the sun's first light, 

And bright life's morning ray. 
In our own sunset's glow so bright 

More gorgeous than mid-day, 

We hail the promise of the night. 

Calm and sweet even-tide, 
And soothed by its peaceful, cheering light 

Adown life's evening glide. 

We cannot even bid the wind 

To blow as seemeth to us best, 
In all submissive hearts will find 

That right — which is His high behest. 

But we may trust that hke this year, 

So full of blessings past. 
May be the days that yet remain 

Each brighter than the last. 

/ For Mrs. Linzee. 

Lines addressed to Mrs. John Inman Linzee on her Golden Wed- 
ding, 19 May 1857, by the poet Dr. Thomas William Parsons. 



632 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

On this happy occasion the Rev. Dr. Paul of Philadelphia offered 
the following toast — 

Let us sing the Golden Wedding 

Of Uncle Linzee and his bride, 
Who, after fifty years of bedding. 

We find still lingering side by side. 

One of the newspapers of the day had this to say about this cele- 
bration — 

''And such truly was a Golden Wedding, occurring this week, 
which every adventitious circumstance combined to encircle with a 
halo of peace and love, to the entire satisfaction of troops of rela- 
tives and friends." 

John Inman Linzee had blue eyes, light brown hair, and pink 
complexion; his wife Elizabeth (Tilden) Linzee was of very similar 
appearance. 

(Suff. No. 42142) Be it remembered that I John L Linzee of the 
City of Boston Gentleman make my last Will thus — 

I give bequeath and devise to my wife Elizabeth all the estate 
real personal & mixed of every kind name & nature soever of which 
I shall die seized & possessed to hold the same to her & her heirs

My dear Mr. Linzee, — 

I have found the records of Trinity Church in all cases for which 
you inquire except the first, but find no record in the latter part of 
1808 or in the year 1809 showing the baptism of George Linzee. 
The other records are as follows: 

April 24, 1814. Susan Inman, daughter of John Linzee, sponsors, 
Parents and Mrs. Joseph Tilden. 

(The name of Tilden is somewhat obscure, but I think that is the 
name.) 

August 20, 1816. Grace Ingersoll, daughter of Ralph Linzee, 
sponsors, the parents and Mary Linzee Dexter. 

May 1, 1820. Thomas C. Amory, son of John Inman and Eliza- 
beth Linzee, sponsors Thomas C. Amory, Thomas A. Dexter and 
Elizabeth Linzee. 

August 24, 1821. John William, son of John Linzee, sponsors the 
parents and Nathan Appleton. 

In none of these cases is there any entrj'^ showing the name of the 
officiating clergyman, but the Rev. Dr. John Sylvester John Gardi- 
ner was Rector of the Church during that whole period and had no 
assistants. All the entries are in the same handwriting and it is 
safe to infer that the baptisms were administered by him. 

In regard to the first name. Can there be any mistake in the 
date you give me? I shall be glad to make further search if you can 
give me another clue. 

Yours very truly, 

[Signed] F. B. Sears.

Letter from Edward Linzee Penfold to Robert George 

Linzee. 

Dear Sir: — 

I was very pleased to get your letter giving particulars of your 
visit to Kingston Church & of your interview with Canon Jacob. 
I have read it over several times with increasing interest. Although 
I had quite lost sight of the Linzee tomb yet what you say about it 
has forcibly recalled it to my mind. I knew it well in former days, 
but as it is 35 years since I left Portsmouth it is not surprising that 
I had forgotten it. I do not doubt that the Linzees & the Linzeys 
are branches of one family, the orthography in both cases being origi- 
nally based on the choice of some one who preferred his own form 
of spelling to any other. The record that you traced in the Register 
of the Baptism of Richard Linzee, son of Edward Penfold on the 
14th May 1774 points to the connecting link between the Linzees 
and the Penfolds. 

The wife of the Edward Penfold thus referred to was certainly 
a Linzee. Their family consisted of George (an intimate friend of the 
Hood & Bridport families, whose memory is preserved in your family 
by the little Penfold relic), William (my grandfather), John Linzee, 
Robert, Richard Linzee and Edward (of the existence of whom I 
was not aware till I read over the will of the oldest of the brothers, 
George, a few days ago). I beheve there was also a daughter named 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 641 

Rebecca. Mrs Crawford was daughter of John Linzee Penfold, and 
another of his daughters was the wife of Admiral Pasco, Nelson's 
Flag Lieut, at Trafalgar; and tracing this branch a generation lower 
I may say that the Pascos' eldest daughter (Horatia) was the wife 
of Admiral McHardy, for many years the chief constable of the 
County of Essex. The John & Frances Mary Penfold referred to 
on the back of Mrs Crawford's Headstone were a brother & sister 
of my own. 

As you were not able to trace any record of Edward Linzee the 
mayor in the Register at Kingston, may it not be found in that of 
St. Thomas, Portsmouth. I have a pretty strong conviction that 
it was he who lived in the house in Green Row, opposite the Govern- 
ors Green which was afterwards the Post Office, but is now either 
a private residence again 'or a part of the Club House. This house 
I refer to is in the heart of Portsmouth and but a stone's throw from 
St. Thomas Church. Would not the family of the mayor prefer 
that one who had filled that office should be buried in the ground of 
the Parish Church of the town of which he had been chief magis- 
trate? 

Believe me, Yours Truly, 

E. L. Penfold.

644 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

John W. Linzee, Esq. 
Charles Street. 

My dear Sir: — 

In compliance with the request of the managers of St. Paul's 
Domestic Missionary Society, I send you this minute adopted at 
their last meeting. 

Yours very truly, 

Rebekah Ketchum, Secretary. 
February 16, 1897. 

On the second Sunday in Advent, December sixth, 1896. 

Mrs. Elizabeth Tilden Linzee Warren passed from the shadows of 
this earthly life, to the mansions prepared for the faithful, in the 
everlasting Kingdom of our God. 

To those who have been associated with our late Honorary Presi- 
dent, in the work of this Society, which was, ever, so near her heart, 
the feeling of present loss will be, at once, & completely overmastered 
by the certainty of her great and everlasting gain. 

It would be difficult, and even impossible to state, in a brief and 
imperfect sketch, what were the predominant characteristics that 
made her personality a living power among us; yet we can, one and 
all, bear witness to the unaffected simplicity, the truth, and the zeal, 
which for so many years, have guided our efforts in this branch of 
our Missionary Service; while we also recall the many other works 
of love to our Master, in which she dehghted to honor Him, and to 
obey His voice. 

Remembering her kind and gentle words of encouragement, we 
can also remember, with gratitude, her firmness and decision in oppos- 
ing whatever she felt to be at variance with truth and right; many 
instances of which served only to strengthen the love and regard of 
those who knew her best. At the same time, her own humility was 
so great that she shrank from even the thought of making known the 
good that she did in secret. 

This feeling was so strong with her, that she was, for some time, 
opposed to the joining of the " Woman's Auxiliary ", during its 
early days, by " St. Paul's Domestic Missionary Society ", saying 
in substance, " This Society has been doing its quiet work for years, 
and why should it, ever, come before the public? " 

Eventually, however, Mrs. Warren yielded to the wish of many of 
our members, and I think she never regretted the enlarged sphere 
of usefulness that came to us from joining that noble band of the 
Church's helpers. 

After the death of Mr. Warren, whose memory is sainted to all 
who knew him, it seemed to us that a deeper consecration had en- 
tered into her life, and was manifested in every remembrance of 
him, and ever}' work done for the Master's cause.

When failing health made her presence among us less constant, 
her interest never wavered ; but her gifts and the love that prompted 
them, were ever ready, in advance, for each new work undertaken 
by the Society. Again and again, she spoke of resigning heir office 
as President: saying she was " useless now ", but the answer was 
ever the same, " We cannot spare you "; and at last, " Let us have 
your name always ". And so, when, to our great joy and comfort, 
Mrs. Appleton consented to become our President, dear Mrs. War- 
ren also rejoiced in her acceptance of this important work, which 
she could, no longer, actively share. But her name, as our " Hono- 
rary President ", was with us, to the end. 

We seem still, to hear her voice, when, after opening the meeting, 
as ever, with the Lord's Prayer and the Collects, she closed, with 
the benediction. 

" The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and 
the Communion of the Holy Spirit, be with each one of us, this day 
and forevermore ".

Thomas C. Amory Linzee in his early career was in mercantile 
life, and afterwards became Treasurer of the Lancaster Mills at 
Lowell, Mass. He was a Lieutenant in the New England Guards. 
The following notice of his death was written by James S. Amory, 
Esq., of Boston : — 

" The late Mr. Linzee. When we miss from the business walks of 
life a form well known; one whose goings forth and returnings have 
been constantly marked for nearly twenty-five years; who was 
noted for his appearance of vigorous strength; for his manliness of 
character; his strict integrity; his unselfishness; his kindly heart; 
his fidelity in all commercial relations; and we know that he will be

no more seen amongst us, it seems scarcely sufficient that the record 
should only be, ' Died, T. C. A. Linzee, aged 43.' 

" There is a deeper and more useful lesson, a juster and more 
fitting tribute in the addition of a few brief thoughts as we reaUze 
that he has finished his course. Mr. Linzee's career teaches us 
this: That a young man who enters upon the business of the 
world with the elevated object of attaining independence through 
his own exertions, not simply that he may be rich, nor that he may 
be successful solely to gratify his own ambitions, but that he may 
minister to the wants of others; that he may honorably sustain an 
honored name, that he may consistently, generously and stead- 
fastly maintain his position, to comfort aged parents, watch over 
the welfare of others who look to him for counsel and advice, and 
build up by slow degrees an individual character which may make 
his mature life valuable and useful to many friends, neither lives in 
vain, nor dies unlamented."

Crew®; b. 10 Feb. 1821 London, England®; d. about 1853 Calcutta®. 
(The Mah6 Family, by John William Linzee). 

His second wife is a descendant of Olivier Mah^, lord of Kerguegen, 
by his wife Frangoise de Kerbiguer, of Bretagne, France. 

John William Linzee, the last of his generation, passed away in 
his ninety-fourth year from an attack of double pneumonia; in 
appearance he was not over seventy, being erect of carriage and over 
five feet ten inches in height ; his eyes were large and blue and a well 
developed physique harmoniously blended with the rest of him. 
Daily he attended to his business affairs in the throngs of the rushing 
city, in touch with the changes in methods, keenly alive to the evo- 
lution of things about him, from the steam engine to the latest fly- 
ing machine, and apparently a man well equipped to hold his own 
with the younger men of his day. In describing his life, many land- 
marks of Boston and other lands, of things and persons, could be 
marshalled before the vision of those who are interested in what 
used to be, but the following will suffice. 

He received his first education at Miss Prescott's school at the 
corner of Chestnut and Walnut streets, Boston, which later removed 
to West Cedar Street. He next attended a private school on Pitts 
Street, in the West End, but the name of the principal has passed 
from memory. At the age of seven and a half years, he entered the 
Boston pubHc school on Mason Street, and a year later joined Mr. 
Whitney's private school on Harvard Place, the entrances being in 
a narrow passage from School Street and a roadway from Washing- 
ton Street. 

When he reached the age of nine and one half years, he became a 



648 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

pupil of the Boston Public Latin School on School Street, and three 
years later passed into the Boston Public High School at the corner 
of Pinckney and Anderson streets, from which he graduated in 1837. 
This building is still in existence as a public school, and he had in 
those days Mr. Solomon Pearson Miles, a relative by marriage, as 
his well beloved principal (•)• 

When a youth he took especial interest in sailing, so that his 
natural tastes dictated a commercial life connected with the sea. 
He was fond of the gymnasium, and later in life of horseback riding. 

In the year of his graduation from high school, he entered the 
dry goods commission house of Samuel Frothingham and William 
Richards Lawrence, located at the northeast corner of the junc- 
tion of Water and Congress streets; remaining with them less then 
a year, profitably and happily spent in the accumulation of business 
methods and trade experiences. The next year Mr. Linzee accepted 
an offer from John James Dixwell Esq., an East India and China 
merchant with offices on India Wharf, and later on State Street, and 
remained in his employ until he attained his majority in 1842. 

Gaining by degrees the confidence of the business houses of the 
day, he was selected to begin his travels as clerk and supercargo in 
the interests of Mr. Diswell, Mr. Francis Bacon, and Messrs. Crocker 
and Warren of New York, respectively. 

For the benefit of his descendants, friends and those interested in 
shipping affairs, a short list of his voyages will be given, until he 
made his last voyage home in May 1884, covering an elapsed time 
of forty-two years.

time in 1856. He became a Royal Arch Mason in 1857, and 
formed the partnership of Dutts, Linzee & Co., who besides 
the ordinary commission trade with America, engaged largely 
in army commissariat contracts with the British East India 
Government until 1861. 

Steamers. 

Peninsular and Oriental Line steamer, from Calcutta for 
Madras, Galle, Aden and Suez ; crossed the desert to Cairo, thence 
per Nile steamer to Atfey and canal to Alexandria; then embarked

ing at Corfu, and disembarking at Trieste. Visited Venice, 
Vienna, Prague, Dresden, Frankfort and Paris; thence to England 
and by steamer from Liverpool to Boston. Returned to Cal- 
cutta via England, Southampton, Alexandria and Overland route 
to Suez, etc.

Peninsular and Oriental Line steamer Alma, from Calcutta 
about May 1859, for Madras, Galle, Aden, etc., but in June, while in

about 40 miles from Mocha. The steamer turned over on her side 
with more than half her length below water, and after a few days 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 651 

slid off into deep water. The passengers, of whom two died from 

the exposure, remained on the reef nearly three days, when one of 

the ship's boats returned with help from H.M.S. Phlegethon, then 

taking soundings off the path of ships. Fortunately the sufferings 

from the intense heat, lack of shade and shortage of food were 

not augmented by a boisterous sea, as the reef was only three feet 

above water. After a week's delay at Aden, he continued his 

voyage to Suez, Alexandria, Marseilles, England and Boston. 

He returned to Calcutta via England and Overland route to Suez, 

in Feb. 1860, and there embarked in the Peninsular and Oriental 

steamer Bentick for Calcutta, which ran ashore in the Gulf of Suez 

and remained fast for three days during a strong gale of wind and 

sand; the ship was nearly a total wreck, but with the advent of 

better weather and the throwing overboard of coal and a portion of 

her cargo, she was floated off and proceeded in a leaky condition 

to Aden and Calcutta. There he continued as a member of the firm 

of Lewis, Bailey & Co. 

In 1862, he received the appointment, under President Lincoln's 
administration, of Vice-Consul General of the United States of 
America at Calcutta, and held that office until 1871.

Jn°. W. Linzee 
U. S. Vice Consul General. 

On the 28th of Mar. 1868, Mr. Linzee sailed from Calcutta on the 
English ship Andromeda, Captain Thompson, with his whole family, 
and arrived at Liverpool the 6th of Aug. following. This vessel 
had been built to run the blockade of the Confederate States. After 
two trips to Boston and return, he and the family sailed from London 
the 6th of Oct. 1869, on the English ship Tantalon Castle, Captain 
Howson. and arrived at Calcutta the 17th of Jan. 1870, where he 
remained until Dec. of 1876, engaged in the usual commission business 
between India and America. 

Having been actively occupied in the East India trade for over 
thirty-four years, it was hard to leave the beautiful city of Calcutta, 
where life was fragrant with variety from every quarter of the world, 
and the standard of living more luxurious than is generally possible 
elsewhere among business gentlemen, yet the longing for home and 
Boston could no longer be resisted, and Mr. Linzee left India for- 
ever in Dec. of 1876 with his whole family, sailing on the Italian 
steamer Roma, Captain C. G. Rolla, and after a delightful voyage 
touching at Colombo, the Suez Canal, Port Said and the Straits 
of Messina, landed at Naples, where the beautiful sights of southern 
Italy were visited, and the same enjojmients continued en route via 
Genoa, Marseilles, St. Malo, to Southampton, England, arriving 
there in the late spring of 1877. 

From 1877 to 1882, several trips were made to places of interest 
(like the Cathedral city of Salisbury), extending from London to

Bristol, and to the summer resorts of the south and southeastern 
coasts, also to Paris, Bordeaux, Pau, Cannes, Mentone and Nice 
in France, and to Milan, Venice, Bologna, Florence, Rome, etc., in 
Italy; also a trip home to Boston and return to Southampton in 
1882. Finally, in 1884, he came back to the city of his birth with his 
youngest son, l^eing followed a year later by his wife and daughter, 
and never cared to leave Boston again. His eldest son, Lewis Lin- 
zee, had married in England, became a British subject, and continues 
to reside there. Mr. Linzee was a Republican and a member of the 
Episcopal Church. 

His life shows an honorable record, calling for much variety of 
ability, and a stanch adherence to a high standard of integrity and 
duty. He died while President of the Lindsay Family Association 
of America, in which he was deeply interested.

Obituary. 
to josephine linzee. 

There are some gentle, trusting souls 

Who savor more of Heaven than earth, 
And walk the ways of mortal life. 

With longing for immortal birth, 
Who look upon the world's vain show 

With tranquil, half-averted eyes. 
As darkly through a glass they see 

The eternal joy of Paradise. 

Of such was our dear Josephine. 

Stern Duty's path she calmly trod. 
With thought upon the things unseen. 

The real things of Heaven and God, 
When hark! — It is her Lord who speaks. 

And swift the Angel reaper flies — 
— " Gather her in, sweet Azrael, 

Lo, she is ripe for Paradise."

It is with diffidence that I write a sketch of my life, but there is 
no one left to do me this service. The indolence of India, the land 
of my birth, is responsible for my chief trait, so that if I have ac- 
complished anything, it is due to Boston and the education gained 
within her hallowed halls of learning that I am able to record a life 
not devoid of service to others indirectly. 

My first school training began at Southampton, England, in 1877, 
and lasted until 1884, but it was lamentably interrupted, owing to 
the sad illness of my youngest sister, by constant trips of the family 
to France for the benefit of her health until her death at Cannes in 
188L In 1883, I succeeded in passing the local examinations of the 
University of Cambridge, and then in 1884 sailed for Boston, where 
the diploma from that English college admitted me to the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology without any other requirement, 
and I have to thank Mr. Elliot Sturgis, of the class of 1884, for suc- 
cessfully gaining for me that privilege. 



660 THE LINZEE FAMILY. 

I graduated from Tech in May 1889, in the Department of Civil 
Engineering, with the degree of Bachelor of Science, my sheepskin 
being signed by that much-esteemed president. General Francis A. 
Walker. Tech's gifts to her students are a power in usefulness; they 
should be considered a necessity by all educational standards, and 
not a luxury. 

Wishing to acquire a httle of Harvard's spirit, I joined that Uni- 
versity in the autumn of 1889, and graduated in June of 1890 with 
the degree of Bachelor of Arts, signed by Charles W. Eliot, president. 
The education at Harvard, however useful to the generality of stu- 
dents, was to me a pleasure and a luxury. I am a charter life mem- 
ber of the Harvard Engineering Society, 

Before leaving the Institute, I assisted in the development of a 
public improvement, known as the Beacon Street extension, from 
Boston to the Reservoir in beautiful Brookhne, under Messrs. As- 
pinwall and Lincoln, civil engineers. After graduation from Har- 
vard, I spent the year 1890-91 with Mr. John R. Freeman in fire 
insurance, making plans and inspections of mill plants in our At- 
lantic States. I then studied law at Boston University, with the 
intention of becoming a lawyer with technical abihty, but my eye- 
sight began to fail, owing to improper glasses, and I was obliged to 
earn a living as best I could until 1896, when I tried bridge design 
on the Boston and Maine Railroad, under Mr. J. P. Snow, bridge 
engineer. Again my eyes would not stand the strain of close indoor 
emplojTTient, and after six months of trial, I resigned for an outdoor 
position as assistant engineer and inspector on the first Boston 
Tremont Street Subway, under Mr. Howard A. Carson, chief en- 
gineer, when the Park Street, Haymarket Square and Scollay Square 
stations enabled me to pass two years of my Hfe. It was not until 
1898, that the trouble with my eyes was fully diagnosed by Dr. 
Walter B. Lancaster, but in the interval the focusing muscles had 
become strained. After 1900 all trouble passed away, for which I 
am extremely thankful. 

In 1898, I laid out the general scheme of the Dudley Street and 
Sullivan Square terminals of the Boston Elevated Railway, under 
Mr. George A. Kimball, chief engineer, and then became chief 
draftsman and assistant engineer under Mr. John C. Ostrup, the 
designing engineer, for a period of four years, supervising the office 
plans in the department of steel design, and in charge of all details 
of structures and the shop drawings. 

Among the other structures I was engaged on, may be mentioned 
the Northampton Street, Dover Street, South and City Square 
stations, the Lincoln Wharf and Charlestown power plants, and 
considerable of the structure between stations. In 1902, I tempo- 
rarily succeeded Mr. Ostrup as designing engineer, until construction 
ceased. 

After 1902, I made plans, which were later constructed, for an 




Susannah (Amory) Puescott 
1802-18G9 



THE LINZEE FAMILY. 661 

electric railway from Lowell to Ayer, Mass., and plans for water 
power development on the Androscoggin River in the state of Maine, 
for Messrs. Farnum and Murray, then of Boston. 

In 1906, I resumed design work with the Boston Elevated under 
Mr. Robert B. Davis, and had responsible charge of the difficult 
and extensive improvements at City Square, Dover Street and Sul- 
livan Square stations. 

As a recreation, I am especially interested in historic-genealogic 
research, and have published a six hundred page volume, with many 
portraits, of old Boston families, in my History of Peter Parker and 
Sarah Ruggles of Roxbury, Mass., Their Ancestors and Descendants, 
and this History of the Linzee Family. I have also nearly completed 
the History of Christopher Tilden and Sarah Parrott of Boston, Mass., 
Their Ancestors and Descendants, which is a twin book to my 
Parker-Ruggles History; the Genealogy of my mother's ancestors, 
the Mah6 Family of France; The Descendants of William Speak- 
man of Boston; and a Genealogy of the Tildens of America, 

I am at present the treasurer and assistant secretary of the Lind- 
say Family Association of America, Incorporated.

ADMIRAL SAMUEL HOOD LINZEE (120), eldest son of Cap- 
tain John Linzee (118) above. 

J. Brooking Rowe, on p. 72 of his collection of the monuments at 

St. Andrew's Church, PljTiiouth, 
Devon, England, records Admiral 
Linzee's monument as follows: 

Arms : — Gules, a f ess chequy , or 
or argent, and sable, in chief three 
mullets. But according to the vicar, 
the Rev. Arthur Peronne, the arms 
are: Gules, a fess chequy or and 
argent, in chief three mullets argent. 
It is clear that the arms of Admiral 
Samuel Hood Linzee are of Scottish 
origin, and should read: Gules, a 
fesse chequee, argent and azure, three 
stars in chief. 
Crest: — None mentioned by Rowe, but the Rev. Arthur Peronne 
called it from its abundant tail, a cock; the head and legs are effaced. 
From Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee's letters, and silverware in the 
possession of his descendants, the crest is an ostrich with a key in 
its bill. The wax on his letters below the crest was broken and 
destroyed by the act of opening the letters.

HANNAH ROWE LINZEE 
(121) AMORY, eldest daughter of 
Captain John Linzee (118) above. 

On a large silver drinking cup, now 
in the possession of the writer, which 
was a wedding present from her to 
her niece Elizabeth Tilden Linzee 
(133) when she married Simon Elliot 
Greene in 1836, is the following: 

Arms : — Gules, a f esse-chequee, 
argent and azure, between three 
stars in chief, and a hunting-horn in 
base, argent. 

Crest : — An ostrich with a key in 
its bill. 

Motto : — Live but (without) 
dread. 

The year 1836 above shows that 
the arms, crest and motto were not 
copied from Lord Lindsay's " Lives 
of the Lindsays," which was first 
edited in 1849.

COATS OF ARiMS OF THE LINZEE FAMILY. 




JOHN INMAN LINZEE (123), 
second son of Captain John Linzee 
(118) above. 

He gave a steel plate seal to his 
son John WiUiam Linzee (135), and 
said it was the complete arms of his 
family in England. It agrees ex- 
actly with the arms mentioned under 
Hannah Rowe Linzee (121) Amory. 

Arms: — Gules, a fesse-chequ^e, 
argent and azure, between three stars 
in chief, and a hunting-horn in base, 
argent. 

Crest : — An ostrich with a key in 
its bill. 

Motto : — Live but (without) 
dread. 







EDWARD HOOD L I N ZEE 
(127), grandson of Admiral Robert 
Linzee (117) above, and eldest son 
of the Rev. Edward Linzee (119). 

Arms: — Gules, a fesse-chequ^e, 
argent and azure. 

Crest : — An ostrich with a key in 
its bill. 

Motto : — Numen-Lumen. 



St. Andrew's Vicarage, Plymouth. 
Dec. 10, 1914. 
Dear Sir: — 

A further inquiry is still being made into the subject of your last 
letter. But meanwhile in the course of an investigation we have 
been making of all the tombstones and monuments of the Church, 
we have found out that the monument to Admiral Linzee of which 
I sent you a sketch is not after all without the coat of arms. The 



COATS OF ARMS OF THE LINZEE FAMILY. 665 

white shield, which looks perfectly blank from the floor, proves on 
closer investigation to be chiselled (it is some 12 feet from the ground), 
and I enclose a rubbing, and a description of the arms as given me 
by a friend. 

Yours faithfully 

Arthur Peronne. 

Arms: — Gules, a fess chequy or and argent, in chief three mullets 
argent. 

The only difference between the above and Rowe's description is 
that he makes the fess or, or argent, and sable. The squares are 
alternate quite plain i.e. argent and studded with little squares, which 
I take to be or. 

Just above the shield is a bird of some sort, now headless and 
legless, but from its abundant tail, I shd judge it to be a cock. Per- 
haps that is the family crest. 

A. P. 

The arms granted to the descendants of Edward Linzee (107) 
were limited to his branch, and do not descend to the issue of his 
brother John Linzee (105) the grandfather of Captain John Linzee 
(118). It is the same as the general arms that all Lindsays are 
entitled to bear who are descendants of Sir William de Lindeseie 
(13) of Scotland, mentioned in Chapter IIL, Section III. The 
crest of Admiral Robert Linzee (117) was not included in the grant 
to his father's issue in 1796; therefore the Admiral must have had 
family tradition or even precedent to warrant him to emblazon the 
ostrich with a key in its bill. It is certain that he did not borrow 
his crest from the descendants of Captain John Linzee (118). 

It is also safe to say that Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee (120), 
eldest son of Captain John Linzee, did not copy his coat of arms 
from Admiral Robert Linzee, as he used three stars in chief in the 
shield, which are not in the arms of Admiral Robert Linzee. These 
stars indicate descent from either the Lindsays of Dunrod or the 
Lindsays of the Byres of Scotland. But the particular branch of 
the Byres is not indicated until the arms of John Inman Linzee (123) 
of Boston, Mass., a younger brother of Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee, 
is consulted, where the branch of Kirkforthar is emphasized by the 
presence of the hunting-horn in base and the motto " Live but 
(without) dread ". 

The records of the Lindsays of Scotland show that the Kirkforthar 
branch became extinct early in the nineteenth century, as the title 
of Earl of Lindsay passed from it to another line, and this could 
not have occurred without complete investigation (Lives of the 
Lindsays, II: 293-4). Therefore the genuineness of the arms of 
John Inman Linzee is open to question notwithstanding the cor- 



666 COATS OF ARMS OF THE LINZEE FAMILY, 

roboration of them by his elder sister Hannah Rowe Linzee (121) 
Amory in 1836. 

Admiral Samuel Hood Linzee and his sister Hannah Rowe Linzee 
lived with and were old enough to remember any arms, if he had any, 
of their grandfather John Linzee (109) of Plymouth, Devon, England, 
who died in 1787. The only difference between them is the hunting- 
horn in base, which could have been omitted by mistake from the 
Admiral's monument, or effaced by time. 

John Inman Linzee, whose testimony cannot be ignored, distinctly 
told his son John William Linzee (135) that the arms he bore and 
presented to his son were those of Captain John Linzee's family in 
England which was of Scottish origin. It is certain that Admiral 
Samuel first Viscount Hood would never have claimed his wife to 
be of Scottish descent and accepted the general Scottish arms, 
unless he knew that she had a claim to them. But the precise coat 
of arms of the common ancestor Thomas Linzee (101) of Portsea, 
if Scottish, is open to different interpretations, as his descendants 
have not all the same emblazonry. 

The Lindsays of Kirkforthar, Eaglescairnie, and Pyetstone in 
Scotland are by the arms possible ancestors of the Linzees; but they 
are all extinct except Pyetstone which exists in a younger branch, 
the Lindsays of Wormestone (Lives of the Lindsays, I: 190, 435, 
444-46; II: 295-96). 

The Lindsays of Loughry and also of Lochhill are also possible 
ancestors of the Linzees. In the past, the writer felt that his family 
possibly came into England with James VI. of Scotland and I. of 
England, which was the case with the Lindsays of Lochhill, but this 
cannot be correct if the Linsyes of Wimborne Minster, Dorset, 
are the true line of ancestry, as they were seated there about 1511 
or earlier. Of course the Une of Wimborne Minster may be of Scot- 
tish origin, perhaps allied to the family of the Rev. John Lindsay 
the minister of Blandford, Dorset. (Lives of the Lindsays, I: 310, 
441; II: 297; and Chapter I., Section III., under Dorset).

Mayor of Portsmouth, England, who was brother of John Linzee, 
Senior our great grand father. (Note: — The tradition in the 
American branch of the Linzee family, has always been that it de- 
scended from a John, brother of the aforesaid Edward Linzee, but 
the aforesaid John Linzee Senior is not the brother, but the nephew, 
being the son of another John Linzee an older brother of Edward. 
This last John married Rebecca Goven. Remarks by the author).

CHAPTER VII. 

THE DESCENDANTS OF MARY LINZEE AND EDWARD 

PENFOLD. 

For the ancestors of Mary Linzee (111), see Chapter V. 

111. MARY LINZEE, dau. of John Linzee (105) and Rebecca 
Goven; bapt. 25 Jan. 1730, Church of Thomas a Becket, Portsmouth, 
Hants, England (Par. Reg.), as Mary dau. of John and Rebecca 

Linzee; d. , at Portsmouth®; m. Edward Penfold, about 1754-5, 

; son of prob. William Penfold, a gentleman farming his own 

estate at Midhurst, Co. Sussex, who died when his son was quite a 
boy, leaving his property in the hands of trustees who dissipated 
the trust, when Edward Penfold, still a minor, was compelled to 
make his way to Portsmouth about the year 1740, where he gained 
employment in the Dockyard, eventually rising to the head of one 
of the mechanical departments®; the bapt. of Edward is however 
not at Midhurst (Par. Reg.), and the year of his birth is unknown, 
yet it should have occurred between 1720-1730, which makes it 
almost certain that he is not Edward bapt. 29 Nov. 1699-1700, the 
son of Edward Penfold of Felpham, Sussex, who is mentioned later 
by Mr. Hugh Penfold; but it is quite possible there was no William 
Penfold of Midhurst and that Edward Penfold, who married Mary 
Linzee, was the grandson of Edward Penfold and Mary Cockle of 
Felpham; Edward Penfold d. , at Portsmouth®. 

The Penfold family have the tradition that their ancestress Mary 
(Linzee) Penfold was a close relative of Susannah Linzee (114) who 
married Samuel 1st Viscount Hood. There has been found in Amer- 
ica, in the possession of John Linzee Amory (121-10), a state- 
ment in the handwriting of Maria Linzee Fitch, the daughter of 
Rose Linzee (124) Fitch who was the great-grand-daughter of John 
Linzee (105) above, as follows: " There was a Mr. Penfold another 
cousin of ours, and also Capt. Shea of the Royal Navy ", 

Thus the tradition of the Penfold family in England, and the record 
of Miss Fitch combined, prove the exact Mary Linzee who could 
possibly be the wife of Edward Penfold, and by making her the first 
cousin instead of a sister of Viscountess Hood, their relationship is 
placed where it does not conflict with authentic records such as the 
pedigree of Samuel 1st Viscount Hood mentioned under Thomas 
Linzee (103), and the will of Edward Linzee (107).

Dear Sir: — 

I have been rather busy lately and have not had leisure to dip 
into matters genealogical, but I lighted upon a sheet, which I en- 
close, as being interesting to you; it was evidently written to rela- 
tive of yours some years ago and was handed to me by the writer, 
the late Mr. Hugh Penfold, when it had been returned to him through 
the dead letter office in London. Although it was some years ago 
I remember him telling me about the incident and that he reserved 
his opinion about the Midhurst origin of the branch you are seeking; 
he strongly put forward the suggestion that Edward Penfold of 
Portsea was descended from Edward Penfold of Felpham; to my 
mind he did not put forward any semblance of proof, but he was a 
good genealogist and no doubt he had good reasons, and owing to 
the correspondence ceasing he carried the research no further. 

I therefore send you the sheet, having made fair copy, just as I 
received it, and on the half sheet you will find some entries which 
are probably connected with the same family. . . . 

Yours sincerely, 
/ Fred B. Penfold. 



AND EDWARD PENFOLD. 681 

Rustington Worthing, July 9, 1906. 
Dear Sir : — 

Some years ago you favoured me with a pedigree of your family 
in which you shewed a descent from a Penfold of Midhurst who you 
calculated was born about 1699, and was of Midhurst. It has oc- 
curred to me lately that he came from a branch of my family and was 
one of the sons of Edward Penfold of Felpham who all disappear from 
that parish after the death of their father about 1700. I say about, 
because I do not find his burial in the Felpham register books. The 
tenth child is named Edward and from him I suggest that you 
descend. 

Yours faithfully, 

Hugh Penfold. 
Edward Linzee Penfold Esq. 

Hugh Penfold of Angmering yeoman, bapt. 1584, died 1658-9. 
By AUce Olliver his wife (sister of Jane who married William Ayling,

7 May 1670. Will dated 13 Dec. 1664, was proved at Chichester

Edward Penfold of Felpham, born at Arundel 14 Aug. 1654, ad- 
mitted a member of Honble Artillery Co., 5 June 1679, died about 
1700. By Mary his wife, had issue: 

I. Thomas, bapt. at F. 30 Oct. 1687.

THE DESCENDANTS OF SUSANNAH LINZEE AND 
SAMUEL, FIRST VISCOUNT HOOD. 

For the ancestors of Susannah Linzee (114), see Chapter V. 

114. SUSANNAH LINZEE Q), dau. of Edward Linzee (107) and 
Anne Newnham; b. 19 June 1726, Portsmouth, Hants, England 
(R. by 1st Viscount Hood) ; bapt. 30 June 1726, Church of Thomas 
a Becket, Portsmouth (Par. Reg.), as Susanna dau. of Edward and 
Ann Linzee; d. 25 May 1805, after a tedious illness, at the Gov- 
ernor's apartments in Greenwich Hospital, as Susanna Viscountess 
Hood, aged 77-78 (G.M., and S.M.); bur. 2 June, prob. in the 
cemetery of Greenwich Hospital, Kent; Susanna Linzee m. Lieut. 
Samuel Hood, 25 Aug. 1749, Church of St. Thomas a Becket, Ports- 
mouth (Par. Reg.) ; m. 24 Aug. 1749, Portsmouth (R. by 1st Vis- 
count Hood); son of Rev. Samuel Hood, Vicar in 1723 of Butleigh, 
Somerset, and Rector of Thorncombe, Devon, and Canon of Wells 
in 1736, whose wife was Mary dau. of Richard Hoskins of Beamin- 
ster, Dorset; b. 12 Dec. 1724, Butleigh, and bapt. there 2 Jan. 
1725; d. 27 Jan. 1816, Bath, Somerset, as The Rt. Hon. Samuel 
Viscount Hood, Admiral of the Red Squadron of his Majesty's 
Fleet, Governor of Greenwich Hospital, an Elder Brother of the 
Trinity House, and Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath 
(G.M.); bur. Greenwich Hospital Cemetery, where a very fine monu- 
ment erected by the Admiralty to those who had died while con- 
nected with Greenwich Hospital, between 1749 and 1869, bears his 
name on it. (R. by E. Cooper Key, Captain R.N., in command of 
the present School, the Hospital being done away within 1868); the 
cemetery itself was some time ago turned into a garden; and the 
gravestones removed. 

Samuel Hood entered the British Navy on the 6 May 1740-1, as 
captain's servant on the Romney of 64 guns, under Captain Thomas 
Smith, known as Tom of Ten-Thousand; he was next an able sea- 
man with Captain Thomas Greenville on the Garland in April 1743, 
and in Nov. he went to the Sherness in the capacity of a midship- 
man under Captain Rodney, later known as Lord Rodney; both 
were transferred in September 1744 to the Ludlow Castle. He next 
served again under Commodore Thomas Smith on the Exeter, in

Jan. 1745-6, then in command of the Scottish station, who appointed 
him a Lieutenant on the Winchelsca of 20 guns under Captain Henry 
Dyve, which was confirmed by the admiralty the 17 June 1746. 
While cruising off the Scilly Islands, the Winchelsea sighted the 
French frigate Subtile of 26 guns which was captured and added to 
the British Navy, being known as the Amazon. In Mar. 1748, he 
was on the Greenwich under Captain John Montagu, and soon after 
went on the Lyon to North America with Rear-Admiral Watson, 
but returned in November and was laid off. In Jan. 1753 he was 
on the guardship Invincible at Portsmouth and later on the Terrible. 
On the 10 May 1754 he became commander on the sloop of war 
Jamaica, which went cruising off the Bahama Islands, and from 
her went as Post Captain to the Lively on the 22 July 1756, but was 
soon made his own Captain on the Grafton by Commodore Charles 
Holmes. Hood returned to England before 1757. 

At his own request, not to be kept idle. Hood received command 
of the Torbay, taking the place of Captain Kettle who was absent 
on the court-martial of Admiral Byng. He similarly commanded 
the Tartar, and later the Antelope of 50 guns on the 30 Apr. 1757, 
when he made the first display of his remarkable talents, on the 14 
May, by the destruction of the French war-ship Aquilon of 50 guns 
in the Bay of Audierne, near Brest. Very soon after he captured a 
couple of privateers, and made prisoners of their crews. The Ad- 
miralty approved of his conduct, and appointed him to the frigate 
Bideford, with the fleet cruising in the Bay of Biscay under the 
command of Sir Edward Hawke, on the 14 July 1757. Hood became 
Captain of the Vestal of 32 guns on the 7 Feb. 1758, when John 
Linzee (118) became his, the captain's, servant at Harwich, the 2 
July 1758, and continued in that capacity until the 13 July 1759. 
Hood took command of the Vestal on the 7 Mar. 1758, and joined 
Hawke's fleet at Basque Roads and in the demolition of the fortifica- 
tion of the Isle of Aix. 

After returning to England, Captain Hood sailed in the Vestal 
from Portsmouth on the 12 Feb. 1759 with the squadron of Admiral, 
afterwards Lord Holmes, in the expedition against Quebec. As one 
of the lookout ships off Cape Finisterre on the 21 Feb., the Vestal 
chased and captured the French frigate Bellona of 32 guns, and, 
owing to the damage to the Vestal, Hood was obliged to bring his 
prize to England. The prominence of this exploit caused Lord 
Anson to present Captain Hood on reaching London to King George. 
After refitting, the Vestal was attached to the squadron under 
Admiral Rodney which bombarded Havre de Grace in July. Hood 
is supposed to have commanded also the Africa of 64 guns at about 
this time, but this record is uncertain. 

Owing to illness, and at his request, Hood was sent to the warmer 
climate of the Mediterranean, where he was engaged under Sir 
Charles Saunders mainly in the Levant on convoy duty, from 1760 



AND SAMUEL, FIRST VISCOUNT HOOD. 705 

to Apr. 1763, which terminated with the advent of peace. In Sept. 
1763, Hood was in command of the guardship Thunderer at Ports- 
mouth, and in 1765 conveyed a regiment of infantry in her to North 
America. 

Before the outbreak of the American Revolution, Hood was made 
Commodore in New England waters, and was ordered to the Boston 
Station on the 9 Apr. 1767. On the 14 Nov. 1768, the Romney 
returned from Halifax, in which came Commodore Hood with his 
wife and family, proposing to spend the winter in Boston. The 
Commodore was the Commander-in-chief of all the men-of-war in 
these parts. There came also in the same ship, Lord William Camp- 
bell, Governor of Nova Scotia. (Hist, and Ant. of Boston, Mass., 
by Samuel G. Drake, p. 753). During his sojourn at Boston, Hood 
addressed some interesting letters to the Admiralty on conditions 
in America which did not coincide with General Gage's opinions. 

Unfortunately for English supremacy in America, as shown by 
papers of the House of Commons, General Gage wrote from Boston, 
on the 3 Nov. 1768, " Everything now has the appearance of peace 
and quiet in this place ", thereby encouraging parhament to pro- 
ceed with its new ideas on the taxation of the American Colonies. 
But a letter dated the 22 Nov. 1768, at Boston Harbour, by Commo- 
dore Hood, had this significant sentence, " The spirit of opposition 
to the acts of parliament of Great Britain is as high as ever, and 
general throughout the Colonies ". Hood's letter of the 25 Nov. 
1768, from Boston, said, " Disturbances are renewed at New York, 
the General and Governor Barnard have been lately burnt in effigy, 
in a most pubhc manner ". His letter of the 12 Dec. 1768, also 
from Boston, stated, " The Council are now sitting, without the 
Governor, and preparing addresses, &c., to England. His Excel- 
lency has told them how unconstitutional they act, but they still 
go on ". 

The authorities in England paid no heed to Hood's warnings; 
instead they continued their acts of oppression by ordering the 
military and naval occupation of Boston, which led up to the Boston 
massacre of 1770. 

Commodore Samuel Hood who resided in the town for several 
months sailed for Halifax, 13 July 1769 (Drake's Boston, p. 763). 

On returning to England, Hood was in command of the guardship 
Royal WilUam at Portsmouth, from Jan. 1771 to Nov. 1773, and 
then of the Marlborough to July 1776, when a serious explosion on 
board, due to the carelessness of a gunner, caused him and his com- 
pany to be transferred to the command of the Courageux of 74 guns 
on the 25 July 1776. 

Commodore Hood, on the 16 Feb. 1778, supplanted Admiral 
Gambier in the post of Commissioner, resident at the Portsmouth 
Navy Yard, and also became governor of the Naval Academy. 
When the King visited Portsmouth, Hood was created a Baronet on 



706 THE DESCENDANTS OF SUSANNAH LINZEE 

the 19 May 1778, with the title of Sir Samuel Hood of Catherington 
in the county of Southampton. On the 26 Sept. 1780, he became 
a Rear Admiral of the Blue, and, with his flag on the Barfleur, sailed 
for the West Indies in Dec. with a powerful squadron to cooperate 
with Sir George Rodney, where both rendered distinguished services. 
The astonishing abilities and wonderful character of Hood now, 
more than ever, began to influence the naval supremacy of England. 

Hood and Rodney combined their forces at St. Lucia, but after 
the attack on St. Eustatius on the 30 Jan. 1781, Hood proceeded to 
the blockade of Martinique, much against his judgment, with an 
insufficient squadron, where with only eighteen ships of the line, 
on the 29 Apr., he was confronted by Admiral Count de Grasse 
with twenty four ships of the line, near Fort Royal. Although 
suffering damage to his ships. Hood remained on the scene in par- 
tial engagement for over two days, when De Grasse withdrew into 
Fort Royal, and Hood rejoined Rodney at Antigua. When Rodney 
returned to England, Hood's squadron joined that of Rear Admiral 
Graves on the North American Station, on the 28 Aug. 

On the 5 Sept., De Grasse appeared off the Chesapeake with twenty 
four ships, while four more blockaded Cornwallis, with the intention 
of adding to his squadron that of De Barras from Rhode Island with 
seven other ships of the line. The English fleet of only nineteen 
ships again met with a check, and failing to relieve Cornwallis, 
returned to New York on the 2 Nov. for refitting. Hood again 
sailed, arriving at the Barbados the 5 Dec, where he was advised, 
on the 14 Jan. 1782, that De Grasse would be found at St. Christo- 
phers. He immediately set sail and arrived on the 24 Jan. south of 
the island of Nevis, with twenty two ships, and found himself con- 
fronted with twenty nine French ships anchored in Basseterre road- 
stead. De Grasse sailed away, and the next day found that Hood 
had anchored his fleet in the very same berth. Two attacks of the 
French were repulsed with serious loss to the foe, when Hood suc- 
ceeded in slipping away at night without any loss. 

In Mar. 1782, Hood made his first real attack on the fleet of De 
Grasse, but it was not until the 12 Apr. that a glorious victory was 
attained, when the Barfleur captured the Ville de Paris. In this 
action Hood led the van division of the fleet under Sir George Rod- 
ney, who was again in command. Between the 19 and 26 Apr. 
Hood added to his naval successes, the capture of four men-of-war 
in the Mona Passage, after which he returned to Cape Tiberon, 
and Rodney. He then sailed for England. 

For distinguished services in the West Indies, against the French, 
His Majesty King George III., raised Admiral Hood to the Peerage 
of Ireland, with the title of Baron Hood of Catherington, on the 12 
Sept. 1782. 

Hood was present at the rehef of Gibraltar in 1782, with his flag 
on the Royal George, and owing chiefly to his brilliant victories,

peace was declared with France in 1783. The freedom of the city 
of London was presented to him in a gold box. 

Letter from George IIL, King of England, to Admiral Samuel 

Lord Hood (0- 

Windsor, August 6'^, 1782. 

Lord Hood must feel as strongly as I can the misfortune it would 
be for my third son to remain on shore the next winter, when most 
probably there will be an active scene in the West Indies, Rear 
Admiral Digby not being able to go there, I cannot choose to place 
William under the direction of any one but the person to whom this 
letter is addressed, of whose attachment to my person, as well as 
skill in his profession, I have every reason to be satisfied. I there- 
fore have directed Rear Admiral Digby, and desired he may be 
placed on board the Barfleur, and trust that Admiral will fully com- 
municate to Lord Hood the manner in which I have as yet thought 
it best to have my son treated. I rely the more on it being followed, 
as I remember Lord Hood very much encouraged my ideas on that 
head when I spoke to him on the subject at Portsmouth. I shall be 
happy if William can be witness to as brilliant actions as have 
attended the " Barfleur " ever since she has left this island. 

George R. 

To Lord Hood — 

Baron Hood's pohtical career commenced with his election to 
Parliament, as M.P. for Westminster from 1784-1788, in which 
interval he was Commander in Chief or Port-Admiral of Portsmouth 
the 30 Apr. 1786, and Vice Admiral of the Blue the 24 Sept. 1787. 
On Earl Chatham becoming First Lord of the Admiralty, Hood 
served as one of its Lords Commissioners from the 16 July 1788 to 
the outbreak of the war with France in Feb. 1793. Meanwhile he 
entered Parliament from Reigate, 1789-1790, and again from West- 
minster, 1790-1796. On the 1 Sept. 1790, he became Commander 
in Chief of the North Sea squadron, intended for action against 
Russia and Spain, but a settlement with those powers occurred before 
he set sail. In June 1792, he was again appointed Commander 
in Chief at Portsmouth, serving until the 2 Mar. 1795. He was 
appointed Vice Admiral of the Red the 1 Feb. 1793. 



(1) Miss Fanny Sophia Penfold, daughter of Edward Linzee Penfold 
(111-10), contributed the above copy of the Royal letter which was a gift 
to her grandfather William Penfold from the late Lord Bridport, together 
with a picture of Samuel 1st Viscount Hood. A visiting card left at the same 
time, reads " Lord Bridport, 12 Wimpole Street ". Miss Penfold believes 
the card to be that of Samuel Hood, 2d Lord Bridport, yet it might have been 
his son Alexander Nelson Hood, 3d Lord Bridport, whose gracious gift is 
much prized in the Penfold family. (See Chapter VII.). 



708 THE DESCENDANTS OF SUSANNAH LINZEE 

Once more the aggressions of France, soon to be led by the great 
Napoleon, called England's naval forces into action. On the 13 
Mar. 1793, Admiral Hood was given the chief command of the Medi- 
terranean fleet, and with his flag on board the Victory, sailed the 
22 May, and arrived off Toulon the 16 July, when that port and 
the French fleet surrendered to him the 28 Aug., but after being in the 
hands of the English and their alUes for four months, the lack of 
proper cooperation by the latter enabled a French army, with Napo- 
leon in charge of artillery, to recapture Toulon on the 17 Dec. But 
before this reverse, in Sept., Hood despatched his brother-in-law, 
Commodore Robert Linzee (117), in command of a small squadron, 
to the assistance of General Paoli in Corsica; Nelson was also there 
as Captain of the Agamemnon; Hood soon followed. S. Fiorenzo 
was captured the 17 Feb. 1794; Bastia surrendered the 19 May, 
when 4500 laid down their arms to 1200; and Calvi was taken the 
10 Aug. Then the entire island submitted to the English. During 
this period, on the 12 Apr. 1794, Hood was made an Admiral of the 
Blue; he then returned to England on the 11 Oct., relinquishing his 
command to Lord William Hotham. 

Thus Admiral Hood held the center of interest, and the fate of the 
whole of Europe depended upon the successful culmination of his 
services. He received the acknowledged gratitude of the Kings of 
Sardinia, Naples, and of the Pope. 

Nelson, at this time, wrote, " The fleet must regret the loss of 
Lord Hood, the best officer, take him altogether, that England has 
to boast of; great in all situations which an Admiral can be placed 
in " (1795). 

On the 25 Mar. 1795, Hood was created an Elder Brother of the 
Trinity House. On the 27 Mar., his wife, Susannah (Linzee) Hood, 
was created, by letters patent, a Baroness of the Kingdom of Great 
Britain with the title of Baroness Hood of Catherington in the County 
of Southampton and the dignity of a Baron of Great Britain to the 
heirs male of her body by Samuel Baron Hood &c. (^). On the 24 
Mar. 1796, Admiral Hood succeeded Sir Hugh Palliser in the post 
of Governor or Master of Greenwich Hospital, and Rangership of 
the Park, which he held until his death. 

On the 1 June 1796, he was elevated to the Peerage of Great Brit- 
ain, as Viscount Hood of Whitley, County Warwick, Lord Hood, 
Baron of Catherington of the Kingdom of Ireland and Baronet 
Admiral of the Blue. Viscount Hood became an Admiral of the 
White the 14 Feb. 1799, an Admiral of the Red the 9 Nov. 1805, 
and G.C.B. the 2 Jan. 1815.

Letter from Samuel Hood to John Rowe. 

Catherington July 8*^ 1771. 
Dear Sir: 

I thanked you for your obliging letter when Admiral Montagu 
sailed, and I now trouble you with two or three letters, as it is un- 
certain whether Cap*. Caldwell & Cap*. Linzee are not on their way 
to England. If they are you may do what you please with their 
letters, it matters not what becomes of them. I also send you the 
news papers from the Admirals sailing to the last post, by which 
you will be informed of all I know respecting the political world, 
for I confine myself wholly to my little farm. If any of my sea 
friends are at Boston let them see the papers and when you have 
an opportunity I beg the favour you will send them to m''. Gerrish, 
with the letter I now enclose. M". Hood is very well and joins me 
in very sincere Complim**. to you & M""'. Row & Miss Inman.

March 16*^ 1772. 
Dear Sir: — 

I cannot suffer a vessel to depart from Portsmouth, without con- 
veying to you & M". Row, very sincere wishes & regards from M". 
Hood, me, and at the same time to assure you that we often remem- 
ber with pleasure, the very obliging civilities you had the goodness 
to shew us at Boston, and that we should greatly rejoice to return 
your favours in old England, if you should feel yourselves disposed 
to cross the Atlantic. Captain Linzee is married since he came to 
England to a very amiable young woman, and resides in the Isle 
of Wight. Thomas hves in Portsmouth, is very well and often with 
us; as it is uncertain where the Beaver is, I take the liberty of rec- 
ommending a few lines for Capt" John to your care. 

There is on board the Captain a young man, whose name is Hutt, 
I cannot say I know him, but he is countenanced and protected, 
by a Lady (Mrs. Roberts) whom I much esteem; if M". Row will 
be pleased to let him warm his fingers now & then by her fire, she 
will add an obligation to M". Hood & me. 

Our united best wishes attend you both. 

I am Dear Sir 

Your most obedient humble servant

Letter from Samuel Hood to John Rowe. 

Catherington oct. 26t\ 1772. 
Dear Sir : — 

I had much pleasure in hearing of M". Rowe's and your welfare 
on the Beaver's arrival, as I also had in seeing your niece in England 
and you may be assured that she is not only acceptable but per- 
fectly agreeable to all Cap*. Linzee's friends, and that she will always 
be regarded by them with great affection. The Captain is sailed 
for the River to prepare the Beaver for paying off; and till that busi- 
ness is effected, M". Linzee has been persuaded to be with us; and 
we have all much pleasure in her company, and shall on every occa- 
sion chearfully give her our utmost countenance, not only for her own 
worth and good nature but as neice to M^ & M". Rowe, and daugh- 
ter to M^ Inman, whom M". Hood & I much esteem. 

You have my best thanks for your kindness to M^ Hutt; and I 
am glad to hear, he behaves so well. 

M". Linzee will speak for herself; I shall therefore only add, M". 
Hood's, Henry's & my best wishes & regards to you, M". Rowe &

Portsmouth Nov'. 2^ 1772. 
Dear Mad"": 

I should think myself very remiss if I was not to take the first 
opportunity of thanking you for your very kind letter, and also to 
tell you we are all extremely happy with M". Linzee. She is now 
staying with us till Cap*. Linzee's ship is paid off. He is gone up 
the River for that purpose, and it was not thought advisable for 
her to go with him, as it is a disagreable navigation and not alto- 
gether a pleasing situation for her to be in. She intends to give 
an account of herself (by this opportunity) to you and her friends 
at Boston. M^ Hood & Henry desire to join in best respects to 
you M'. Rowe & M^ Inman's family with

Letter from Lord Hood to Captain John Linzee. 

Admiralty, Nov'. 13*^ 1788. 
My dear John: 

You have done perfectly right, in accepting Admiral Leveson 
Gowers recommendation of a mid; but you should have been cau- 
tious how you acknowledged your being intended to command the 
Penelope, to any other person, 

A joint letter has been received this post from the gunners of the 
Penelope & Amazon. I shall therefore be glad you will enquire 
the character of the two men, and if you would like the gunner of 
the Amazon better than the one now in the Penelope the exchange 
they request, will be comphed with — you will therefore let me know 
what your wishes are, but you will make your enquiry 'privately. 
The account just received from Sir. G. Baker at Windsor, to the Lord 
in waiting is in the following words — " The King had access of 
fever yesterday evening, which abated in the night, and has not 
entirely left him ". 

You will certainly be right to rate Samuel and I am glad to hear 
so good an account of him. Lady Hood unites in Love to M'■^ 
Linzee &c &c, with my dear John 

Your affectionate & faithfull 

Hood.

so good an account from M". Rowe, whose letter I now return. 

When I see Sir Charles Douglas, I wdll do the best I can with him 
in favor of M^ John Irmian. 

You will soon be ordered to complete your Provisions, and have 
your full proportion of marines. If you rate the Boatswain mate 
of the Mirmydon, zeo° of the sheets it is the same thing, but should 
the Mermidon put into Plymouth, which is very probable. Cap* 
Rowe will of course take him again. 

I expect M^ & M". Hood & their little girls with M". Hollwell 
today, if the snow does not prevent their coming. 

Lady Hood joins in Love to you M". Linzee and all yours with 
my dear John 

Most affectionately yours 

Hood.

Letter from Lord Hood to Captain John Linzee. 

Admiralty Feb^. 7*^ 1789. 
My dear John: 

I am glad you received the 20 L Bill for the use of M'. Coghlan, 
who is to have five pounds quarterly; and hope the Penelope will be 
in the Sound tomorrow as your orders for proceeding to Halifax 
are now signed, ready to be forwarded, so soon as it is known you 
are out of Hamose; so that you will hold yourself prepared to sail 
as [soon] after the receipt of them as the wind will permit, which 
seems now to be inclining to the northward. I shall write to you 
again before you depart. 

You & yours have Love & all good wishes from home. 
Most faithfully your friend & humble servant 

Hood.

his summers in Brookline; his mother, the daughter of William Coffin, 
was the first cousin of Sir Isaac Coffin, R.N., the son of Nathaniel 
Coffin. Mr. Amory's death caused general sorrow and mourning 
among his business associates, friends and relatives; his influence 
extends down to the present, through the positions of honor and 
usefulness held b}^ his descendants.

Obituary. 

Died, at her residence in Franklin Place, December 29th., 1845, 
Mrs. Hannah Rowe Amory, aged 70. Mrs. Amory was not one of 
those who take pleasure in ostentatious eulogy, nor indeed were the 
unostentatious quahties of her own character at all suited to this; 
but yet it may be permitted to pay a brief, though unavaiUng tribute 
to so much excellence, while the impression made by it is still fresh 
upon us. 

More than thirty years have elapsed since the death of her hus- 
band, Thomas C. Amory, a man that will be long honored in this 
community for the integrity, high sentiments of honor, and muni- 
ficent spirit associated with it, and which is still cherished with the 
warmest recollection by those now surviving who enjoyed the privi- 
lege of his friendship. 

Left with a numerous family, without the guidance of the friend 
on whom she had been so long accustomed to lean for counsel and 
support; Mrs. Amory found in herself resources of which she was 
probably not before aware. From the moment of her husband's 
death, she devoted herself with exemplary fidelity to the care and 
education of her children, and it was her happiness to receive from 
them in return the homage of truly grateful and affectionate hearts. 
But her sympathies were not confined to her own household, and 



AND THOMAS COFFIN AMORY. 759 

she became the centre of a large circle of kindred and friends, who 
found a welcome hospitality under her roof in the hour of prosperity, 
and all the alleviations which love and kindness could render in the 
time of trouble. To those who had no other claims on her, but the 
ordinary ones of humanity, her hand was ever open, and many a 
poor heart has been gladdened by the relief made more grateful 
by the unobtrusive and delicate manner in which it was adminis- 
tered. 

The prominent feature in her character, which gave an expression 
to all the rest, was her love of truth; truth in thought, word and 
action. She proposed to herself the straight rule of right, and no 
temptation could have been strong enough to seduce her from it; 
and no threat to intimidate her. She had that moral courage, which 
belongs to such a character, and never shrunk from avowing her 
measures, or her motives. Faithful, constant and true, all knew 
where to find her ; and in doubtful and trying times, and such occur 
in every domestic circle in the course of years, she was always to be 
found faithful to her duty, whatever sacrifices it might involve. 
Such sacrifices seemed to cost little to one who had early the difficult 
lesson of sacrificing self. 

Guided by high principle and an undeviating sense of duty through 
life, she was able to meet death without terror; she advanced slowly 
but certainly towards that goal, by that long and lingering malady, 
under which the spirit too often sinks with the decay of bodily 
strength. But her spirits did not fail her, and she passed through 
this painful period with the same equanimity which she had shown in 
health. She had none of the excitability of a morbid temperament 
which so often causes unnecessary suffering to the mind enfeebled 
by disease; still less was she disturbed by those gloomy apprehen- 
sions which hang around the dying hours of a troubled conscience. 
Her judgment was as cool and as well balanced in her latter days, 
as at any previous period; she was not like one who feels the neces- 
sity of making up for past insensibihty by extraordinary prepara- 
tion at the last; her Hfe had been a constant preparation for death, 
and she looked only upon death as the gate through which, by the 
infinite mercy of her Creator, she was to enter into eternal hfe.

(The Prescott Memorial by William Prescott, M.D.). 

(N.E.H. & G.R. XXII: 225-32). 

They resided, 54 Beacon Street, Boston. 

William Hickling Prescott, a citizen of Boston, and the incompar- 
able historian of the romantic period of Ferdinand and Isabella, 
the Conquest of Mexico, the Conquest of Peru, and the Reigns of 
Philip II. and Charles V., of Spain, was the grandson of Colonel 
William Prescott and Abigail Hale of Pepperell, Mass. The grand- 
sire earned a never to be forgotten name as hero and commander of 
the American troops at the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775, where he 
met the bitter fire of the British sloop of war Falcon, commanded 
by Captain John Linzee, whose granddaughter was the wife of the 
subject of this short and inadequate tribute. 

John Prescott, the first of his sturdy race in America, came from 
the Puritan English stock of Lancashire to Watertown, Mass., in 
1640, but finally settled in Lancaster where he was in constant touch 
with the Indian enemy. 

The swords of Colonel William Prescott and Captain John Linzee 
are now crossed on a tablet in the halls of the Massachusetts His- 
torical Society, in token of their family alliance by the marriage of 
their grandchildren, the historian and Susannah Amory. The 
Prescotts and all the families allied to them who are ancestors of the 
historian, and the same is true of his descendants, belong to those 
whose social prestige and influence have spread far and wide in 
American life. 

The father of the historian was an eminent lawyer of Salem who 
moved to Boston in 1808 in order to gain a broader field for his 
talents. The son entered Harvard College in 1811, and in his junior 
year suffered the practical loss of his left eye through the careless 
conduct of a fellow student, but in spite of this injury young Pres- 
cott graduated in 1814. Unfortunately a rheumatic inflammation 
of the right eye made its appearance in 1815, and continued through- 
out his life, but these sorrows only stimulated him all the harder to 
overcome his handicap by more extensive study and deeper inward 
reflection, which resulted in the unconscious development of the 
magnificent mentality that he possessed. 

Although he took up the study of law with his father, it was soon 
evident to his parents that, with the hope of alleviating his infirmities, 
a course of travel would be the best way for him to continue his 
education. While engaged in this pursuit, he visited St. Michael's 
in the Azores, England, France, Italy, etc. Upon his return home 
he took his Master's degree at Harvard in 1817, and soon after it 
was apparent that his sight was not improved and that a professional 
life was to be denied him. 

After 1822, he quietly and seriously began the study of literature 
for the foundation of his future efforts, becoming acquainted with 
the works of English, French, Italian and especially Spanish writers

in the original, thus imbuing his naturally romantic nature to select 
in 1826, the history of the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella, as the 
medium in which to express the noble spirit within him. This he 
completed in 1837. His triumph in the world of letters was imme- 
diate and far reaching, and will be known forever; his success appeals 
to our highest fancy, and our appreciation is all the more when we 
remember that the services he rendered to mankind were accomplished 
under physical distress. 

He was honoured by the highest societies of learning of the United 
States and of Europe, receiving the Doctor of Laws degree from 
Columbia in 1840, from William and Mary's College and from South 
Carolina University in 1841, and from Harvard in 1843. The rank 
of Doctor of Civil Law was granted him in 1850 by Oxford Univer- 
sity, England, which he went over to receive. This visit led up to 
the extension of many courtesies to him, among them a presentation 
at Court. It also gained him the friendship of English men of letters, 
which deeply affected him and influenced him in his career. He 
was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1900, where the names of great 
Americans find a fitting tribute from their fellows. 

The portrait of William Hickling Prescott, so kindly contributed 
by his granddaughter, Mrs. Edith Prescott Wolcott, widow of the 
late Governor Roger Wolcott, shows the writing tablet or nocto- 
graph used in his literary labors. The portrait of his wife Susannah 
Amory appears probably for the first time through the kindness 
of Mrs. Frances Clifford Prescott, widow of the late Mr. Linzee 
Prescott, grandson of the Historian.

Edward Dexter Sohier graduated at Harvard College with the 
class of 1829, and was admitted to the bar in October 1832, when 
only about fifty won that distinction. The half century that he 
devoted to his profession added to the dignity and honour in which 
he was held by the community, as well as reflecting credit on the 
profession itself, of which he was a leader. His talents, guided as 
they were by an artistic temperament full of personal charm, keen 
sense of brilliant repartee, power of discernment, and strong instinct 
of justice, stamped him as a legal genius. 

For an eloquent tribute, after the death of Mr. Sohier, by his pro- 
fessional contemporaries, the reader is referred to the " Proceed- 
ings at Meetings of the Bar of Suffolk County, Mass.", held Dec. 
22, 1888, Jan. 12, 1889.

Portland, Maine®; bur. at Belfast, Maine. 

General John F. Anderson was born in Belfast, Maine, in 1834. 
His father, Hugh J. Anderson, was United States Congressman from 



774 THE DESCENDANTS OF HANNAH ROWE LINZEE 

Belfast, Maine, in the years 1837, 1838, 1839, 1840, and was Gover- 
nor of Maine in the years 1844, 1845, 1846. His mother was Martha 
Dummer. 

In 1851, at the age of seventeen, John F. Anderson came to Bos- 
ton, and was employed by the wholesale dry goods firm of Amidown, 
Holmes & Co. (which became later Edwards, Nichols & Richards), 
at 23 Pearl St.; afterwards by Blanchard, Converse & Co., and 
Converse, Harding & Co., at 83 Pearl St., until 1861, when he en- 
tered the employ of Wright & Whitman, dry goods commission 
merchants, at 140 Devonshire St. 

In March, 1861, when the Civil War became imminent, but before 
Fort Sumter was fired on (April 12th), he was commissioned as an 
officer in the Massachusetts militia, and served until the end of 
the war. He was first commissioned as an officer of the New Eng- 
land Guards, and later took part in organizing the 24th Massachu- 
setts Infantry Regiment; on September 2, 1861, at twenty-eight 
years of age, he was commissioned as adjutant of the 24th Regiment. 
The regiment was drilled at Readville, and was sent on December 9, 
1861, to Annapolis, Maryland, where it became part of General 
John G. Foster's brigade in Gen. Burnside's expedition to North 
Carolina. Anderson was detailed almost at once to Gen. Foster's 
staff as aide-de-camp (commissioned as Major June 9, 1863), and 
served in this position and later as Gen. Foster's Chief of Staff until 
within a few days of Gen. Lee's surrender (April 9, 1865). He saw 
active service in the capture of Roanoke Island and New Berne, 
the bombardment of Fort Macon; the expedition to burn Golds- 
boro Bridge; Southwest Creek; the battle of Kingston; the action 
at Whitehall; and the defence of Washington, N. C. In 1863 he 
was detailed at Hilton Head to exchange prisoners, and was able to 
be of service to Lieutenant C. W. Amory, then a prisoner: it was 
through the friendship thus made that he came to know Miss Ellen 
S. Amory, Lieut. Amory's sister, to whom he afterwards was mar- 
ried. From December, 1863, to February, 1864, Gen. Foster was 
in command of the Department of Ohio, and Anderson was with 
him. In the latter part of 1864 he served as Chief of Staff with Gen. 
Foster, who then commanded the Department of the South. He 
saw active servace near Savannah, at Port Royal, and in the vicinity 
of the TulHfinney River. On December 13, 1864, he was detailed 
to carry to Washington General Sherman's report of his arrival at 
the sea from his march through Georgia. On March 1, 1865, he 
was promoted to be Brevet Lieutenant Colonel; on March 13, 1865, 
to be Brevet Colonel and Brigadier General of United States Volun- 
teers, "for gallant and meritorious services during the war". He 
was never wounded, and was fortunate in having health and consti- 
tution which enabled him to go through the war without the attacks 
of typhoid, malarial fever, etc., that constantly resulted from the 
hardships and exposure of army life. 



AND THOMAS COFFIN AMORY. 775 

Immediately after the war he returned to Boston, and became 
for a short time a partner with Frank S. Fiske as stock brokers at 
40 State St. 

On December 21, 1865, he was married in King's Chapel by the 
Reverend Henry W. Foote to Ellen S. Amory, daughter of William 
and Anna Amory, and lived first at 41 Beacon St., the home of his 
wife's parents, and afterwards at 94 Charles St., where his three 
daughters, Harriet, Ellen and Anna, were born. 

In 1866 he entered the employ of J. W. Wheelwright & Co. (later 
Wheelwright, Pippy & Co.), dry goods commission merchants, at 
72 Federal St., and in 1869 he became a partner in that firm, after- 
wards Wheelwright, Anderson & Co. In this firm he was associated 
in business with Mr. Browne (afterwards of Amory, Browne & Co.), 
O. K. Eldredge, George Lewis, and Wilham A. Copeland; and in 
connection with selling the product of the Merrimack Manufacturing 
Company, with Benjamin W. Crowninshield and William P. Clarke. 

In 1887 General Anderson retired from active business. Part of 
his activities in business life had been to reorganize and enlarge the 
Fisher Mfg. Co. and the Cabot Mfg. Co., which, under his direction 
and guidance, and with capital subscribed by investors who rehed 
on his judgment, became large and prosperous New England mills. 
For many years he served with Franklin Haven, William Amory, 
John P. Bailey and J. Huntington Wolcott, as director of the Mer- 
chants National Bank, at that time the largest national bank in 
New England. With Wilham Endicott, Jr., Charles H. Dalton, 
Charles F. Choate, James J. Storrow, Edmund Dwight, Fred L. 
Ames, Robert Codman, George Dexter, Roger Wolcott, et al., he 
served as director of the New England Trust Co., at that time the 
largest trust company in New England. He was also director of 
the Hamilton National Bank, the Fisher Mfg. Co., and the president 
and a director of the Cabot Mfg. Co. 

On August 5, 1861, he was elected a member of the Somerset Club. 
He was a member of a dining club called '' The Officers' Club ", 
which met for many years after the war, and the members of which 
were among his most intimate friends.

(Roger Wolcott, by William Lawrence, Bishop of Mass., in the 
Sons of the Puritans, pp. 163-180). 

(Roger Wolcott, by Henry Cabot Lodge). 

(Roger Wolcott, Memoir, by Rev. Arthur Lawrence, in the Colo- 
nial Society of Mass., Publications, II: 348-363). 

Roger Wolcott, Governor of Massachusetts, was descended from 
Henry Wolcott, one of the more influential of the English Puritan 
settlers of New England, who came from Goldon Manor, in the 
neighbourhood of Tolland, Somerset, to Dorchester, Mass., in the 
year 1630. The pioneer soon moved to Windsor, Conn., where his 
descendants became prominent in pohtical and military affairs. 
Roger Wolcott, Uneal descendant of Henry, and ancestor of the Mas- 
sachusetts Governor, was in the Louisburg Expedition of 1745; he 
was Lieutenant-Governor of Conn. Oliver Wolcott, another ancestor, 
attained the high rank of Brigadier-General in the war of the American 
Revolution, and was one of the signers of that immortal document, 
" The Declaration of Independence "; he was also second Governor 
of the new State of Connecticut. Joshua Huntington Wolcott, 
father of the Massachusetts Governor, returned to the district 
where his first ancestor landed in America, and in which his de- 
scendants have already achieved distinction in harmony with that 
of their Connecticut predecessors. 



AND THOMAS COFFIN AMORY. 787 

Roger Wolcott received his early training in the school of Mr. E. S. 
Dixwell; he then attended Harvard University, where he graduated 
in 1870, with the honour of orator; he completed his law course at 
Harvard in 1874, when he was admitted to the Bar of Suffolk County, 
Massachusetts. His incHnation for a political career was gratified 
by his election to the Common Council of the city of Boston from 
1876-79, and as representative to the State legislature from 1881- 
84; but he preferred to retire temporarily from active work in the 
Republican party, rather than support their choice of a national 
leader at that time, so that he did not again appear prominently in 
politics until 1891, when he was chosen first President of the Repub- 
lican Club of Massachusetts. 

In 1892 Mr. Wolcott was elected Republican Lieutenant-Governor 
under the administration of Governor William E. Russell who had 
signally captured the state for the Democratic party; and in 1893 
he again showed his popularity by winning the post of Lieutenant- 
Governor under the Repubhcan leadership of Governor Greenhalge, 
surpassing him in the party vote. He continued in that capacity 
until 1896, when the death of Mr. Greenhalge advanced him to the 
rank of Acting-Governor. On the next election he was made Gov- 
ernor and continued as such until 1899. He had the distinction of 
receiving the largest majority ever polled by any candidate for the 
Governorship. 

Governor Wolcott, for private reasons, refused an appointment 
to the Commission of the Phihppine Islands in 1900, and also the 
post of Ambassador to the court of Italy. He was a member of 
many societies, overseer of Harvard College from 1885-95, and 
director and trustee in business circles. He received the degree of 
Doctor of Laws from Williams College in 1897. His sudden death 
in 1900, took from the service of his country an experienced legis- 
lator, a noble gentleman, and a leader among our prominent citi- 
zens, looked up to and admired by the nation. 

The late Senator Hoar, whose judgment all revere, said of Wolcott: 
" He was a type of character of which George Washington was a 
peerless example ". The late Gov. Frederick Greenhalge, his prede- 
cessor, said of him: "A truer servant of the people I have never 
found ". Bishop William Lawrence of Massachusetts eulogized his 
life-long friend thus: " There was that about him which defies 
analysis, which eludes definition, but which is found in those rare 
characters, who, Hke Philip Sydney, Chevalier Bayard, or Robert 
Louis Stevenson, gain our confidence, win our admiration, kindle 
our affections and who, in their unconsciousness make us conscious 
that we are in chivalric company. In form and countenance, in 
presence and atmosphere, he was of nature's noblest". 

The people of his state remember him best as a friend, who, in 
the war with Spain in 1898, took a more than personal interest in 
their sons at the front, and their affectionate tribute to his memory

806 THE DESCENDANTS OF SUSANNAH LINZEE 

2d Lieutenant in the 20th Mass. Volunteers, and received quick 
promotion owing to the terrible loss of officers from that regiment 
in the disastrous battle of Ball's Bluff. As a Captain, when con- 
valescing from illness, he was one of those detailed to guard, unseen, 
President Lincoln as he walked to and from the White House and 
the Department of State. After the battle of the Wilderness, Cap- 
tain Tilden fell a prey to peninsular fever, and was sent north des- 
perately ill, being for some time paralyzed below his waist. Finally 
a long sea voyage was ordered by his doctors, and he sailed around 
Cape Horn to join his brother Joseph, then a successful, gay and 
hospitable banker in San Francisco. And during his long absence 
from home, he spent a winter in Japan and part of one in the Sand- 
wich Islands, the climate and life of the jewels of the Pacific Ocean 
being greatly to his fancy. Many a tale could he tell of adventure 
and daring in Cahfornia and among the mountains especially. 

After he returned to Massachusetts, he married and settled down 
with much patience to the drudgery of uncongenial business, but 
after an illness in the eighties his health again obliged him for two 
years to seek a warm climate, although no trace of the original break- 
down remained. He finally retired from business and spent every 
winter for eight years or more in foreign travel quietly spending 
months in the hottest climes. He died strangely enough in Meran, 
Austria, among the snow covered mountains, where he had been 
ordered by a Paris physician. Many of the episodes in this fife 
of movement were most interesting when he could be induced to dis- 
close them. He was a gallant, courteous and generous gentleman®.

THE DESCENDANTS OF MARY ANN CHARLOTTE LINZEE 
AND COLONEL JAMES WARWICK WOOLDRIDGE. 

For the ancestors of Mary Ann Charlotte Linzee (132) see Chapter V. 

132. MARY ANN CHARLOTTE LINZEE, dau. of Admiral 
Samuel Hood Linzee (120) and 2d wife Emily Wooldridge; b. 26 
Jan. 1818, Plymouth, Devon, England®; d. 18 June 1898, Southamp- 
ton, Hants, England (R. by Mrs. Lewis Linzee) ; bur. Southampton 
Cemetery®; Mary Ann Charlotte Linzee m. her first cousin James 
Warwick Wooldridge, 13 Aug. 1838, Church of St. Andrews, Plym- 
outh® (Par. Reg., and G.M.); son of Captain William Wooldridge, 
Royal Navy, and Anne Gurney®; b. 6 Mar. 1813, Newnam, Corn- 
wall®; d. 10 Sept. 1891, Manantoddy, Madras Presidency, India®. 

(Memorandum by Colonel James Warwick Wooldridge). Samuel 
Hood, the second Lord Bridport, grandson of Admiral Viscount 
Samuel Hood and Susannah Linzee, married Charlotte, Duchess of 
Bronte, the only daughter of the first Lord Nelson and Baron 
Nelson of the Nile; this Duchess of Bronte was Mrs. Wooldridge's 
godmother, after whom she was christened Charlotte. 

Extracts from the Record of Service of Colonel (Brigadier Gen- 
eral) James W. Wooldridge during the Wars of Succession in Spain 
and Portugal — taken from the General bodies and despatches ; — 
published in the Blue Book of the House of Commons, and the news- 
papers of the day from 1832 to 1838. 

Commenced his career in these Wars at the siege of Oporto, as a 
volunteer with a musket in his hand under Col. Hodges, (at the age 
of 17 in 1832) that officer having declared one unfit to be an officer 
who did not know the duties of a soldier. Received his first com- 
mission in the British Auxihary Legion on the 29 Sept. same year, 
for defending the advanced post (when the Mignelites attacked the 
city on that day) after all the officers had been killed or wounded; 
and only retiring before two Regiments of the Enemy when every 
round of ammunition was expended and after losing 24 out of 42 
men, himself being badly wounded. — Appointed Ensign on the 
24 March following, while still suffering from severe wounds and 
only able to move with the aid of crutches, being a spectator of the 
enemy's desperate attack on the city and seeing the Regiment to 
which he belonged — emaciated and reduced by sickness and famine —

give way before an overwhelming force, on the death of his com- 
manding and several other senior officers; he stuck his red jacket 
on the top of his crutch, for a flag, rallied the troops, and, carried 
on the arms of the soldiers, retook the position. Promoted Lieu- 
tenant and obtained the order of the " Tower and Sword ". At the 
total defeat of a Portuguese division at Aleazar do Tal, he covered 
the retreat with a few Englishmen present in the battle; and on 
arriving at the rapid river Tal, found the retreating troops had re- 
moved all the boats to the other side. He swam the river under a 
terrible fire of musketry and was again wounded, but brought back 
one boat by aid of which all who were saved made their escape. — 
Promoted Captain. 

In Spain on the 5th May 1835, when Sir De Lacy Evans drove the 
Carhsts from the Lines of St. Sebastian, he was again wounded and 
was recommended to the notice of the Commander in Chief on the 
field of battle, for his conduct, by the Adjutant General on whose 
staff he then was, and also by one of the Generals of Division. — 
Obtained his Majority and the 1st Class of St. Ferdinand. 

On the 1st October following was promoted Lieut. Colonel, and 
received the order of Charles IIL " for acts of distinguished gallantry 
in the Field ". 

At the siege and capture of Irun on the 17 May 1836 he was made 
a Colonel by Brevet and obtained the distinguished order of the 
second class or laurel-leafed order of St. Ferdinand for " distinguished 
conduct, more particularly for leading the storming party which 
first entered the town". 

He subsequently organized and commanded a Rifle Regiment, and 
a large Infantry Battahon with much eclat and distinction, holding 
the rank of Brigadier General. 

It will be observed that I have only recorded actions in which my 
father gained promotion ; he was present in many other engagements, 
was several other times wounded, frequently mentioned in despatches, 
and obtained several orders and medals. 

Historical Sketch of the late German Legion drawn from memory, 
but based on official records: 

When, during the Crimean War, it was deemed advisable to enlist 
foreign Legions to supplement our troops. Colonel J. W. Wooldridge, 
who had long since retired from active service, was specially requested 
to accept command of a Brigade in the German Legion, his peculiar 
abihties as an organizer and commander being well known at Head- 
quarters. Under him, accordingly, were organized at Shorncliffe 
3 Battalions of Rifles, 6 Battalions of Infantry and 2 Regt. of Cavalry, 
and the high eflSciency attained by these Corps elicited the encomium 
of the Field Marshal Commanding in Chief and the thanks of Her 
Majesty herself on more than one inspection of the Brigades. 

On the 1st Brigade (consisting of 1 Batln. of Rifles and 3 Batlns. 
of Infantry) being ready to take the Field in 1855, Colonel Wool- 



AND JAMES WARWICK WOOLDRIDGE. 823 

dridge solicited permission to accompany them himself to the Crimea. 
They reached Turkey, however, too late in the year to move to the 
front, and were ordered into winter quarters at Scutari. While 
there, their smartness on parade, and good behavior in quarters 
earned the praise of the many officers of high rank who saw them, 
especially that of Sir Henry Storks who then commanded on the 
Bosphorus. Peace being concluded in the spring of 1856 they had 
no opportunity of displaying their powers in the field, much to the 
disappointment of their gallant Brigadier, who hoped to have won 
fresh laurels for himself with the troops he had so carefully trained, 
but was obliged to content himself with the order of the 1st class of 
the Medjidie. 

On their return to England it was thought unadvisable to utterly 
lose the services of so fine a body of men; and endeavours were 
made to induce them to embark for the Cape of Good Hope where it 
was intended to post them in military villages on the extreme fron- 
tier line to serve as a protection from the Kaffirs to the less warlike 
settlers in their rear. Only about 3000 men, however, accepted the 
offers of Government and Colonel Wooldridge consented to take 
command of the force, and superintended, in conjunction with the 
Colonial Government, its location on the frontiers. 

This duty was scarcely completed, when the outbreak of the Mutiny 
threatened our dominion in the East; and Colonel Wooldridge at 
once suggested to Sir George Gray, then Governor at the Cape, the 
embodiment of as many Germans as might volunteer, into a Regi- 
ment to proceed under his command to the scene of war. His pro- 
posals were at once accepted, and in a very short space of time some 
1500 men were collected and embarked with him for India. 

On arrival at Bombay, which presidency had already been dan- 
gerously denuded of troops to send to the front, they were again 
doomed to disappointment, for the Bombay Government gladly 
availed itself of their services to overawe the large native cities of 
Poona & Nuggar, which were then extremely disaffected and were 
only prevented from rising by the presence of the German Battalion. 

Thus once more they remained inactive, but here as elsewhere they 
obtained the good opinion of all; so much so that on the close of 
the war all who would take service were transferred, both officers 
and men, into the 109th Regt. of Foot; and Col. Wooldridge having 
again received the thanks of Government, once more retired into 
private life. (The mifitary services of Colonel James Warwick 
Wooldridge, described above, were written by his son Colonel De 
Lacy Richard Frank Wooldridge to John William Linzee, when 
both were residents in India prior to 1876).
