This is a digital copy of a book tliat was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public doinain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vaiy country to counti^y. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated quen'ing. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Moke non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-cojnjnercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from oulomated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use. remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

A PAPER READ BEFORE THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC- 
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY, 
At IIS MsBTina on the 1st of AtrcusTf 1B55. 
[By (hs BeT. Wiluam Jbfu, D. D.] 

Wb are citizens of a country, on wbooe inatitutions civilized nBtioas 
bave looked with growing ioteiest The advance which has been made 
among ua, in the establishment of free institutiooB, while it has excited the 
jealoosy of some, has animated the efforts of others, and encouraged their- 
hopes. We take rank, as a nation, with the old empires and kingdoms of 
the world, on terms of reciprocal benefit. But not one century has ckwed 
UDce the recognition of our nationality, and not more than three centujies 
since our extended shores were visited by Europeans. 

Every tongue recapitulates these facts. We are permitted to enjoy the 
Rsult of them. But such are the facts, and such the results, that it needs 
not the spirit of an overweening fanaticism, or self-applauding superati- 
tioo, to ascribe to their causes a higher origin than mere hazoJrd, or the 
express designs and continuous counsels of men. The hand of God, in 
His providences, has often been recognized by our pious countrymen, at 
various periods of their history, and devoutly believed to be ceocemed ia 
producing the events whence our prosperity has come. 

We rank, as a natioQ, with old empires and kingdoms, 1 have said. 
Bat we are ncrt like them. We have been recognized nwi* than half a 
century, since our Revolution ; and in that period have seea a bloody 
stivf^te of an oppressed people to shake off its goversnwnt— whiah it 
did, and proved itself unable to ordain a substitute ; at least, such a sub> 
stitute as the necessities of the people seemed to demand l and we have 
seen them, aAcr years of anarchy, and its too sure follower, military des- 
potism, relapsing again and again into monarchy. Fraocer has, however, 
pined much, notwithstanding this relapse. 

But we have also seen the colonies of another nation, which, from the 
very discovery of this continent, occupied the highest eminence of power 
(or neariy two centuries, ^ling to obtain the iulvantages of revolution, 
and becoming a mutual prey to contention, jealousy, the competition of 
ambitious chieftains, and the incapacity of political leaders. 

No horrors like those of France, no miseries like Aose of the Spanish 
Colonies of South America, mariied our revolution. It was conducted by 
man of a different chancier. It concerned a people af different descent, 
2

habits, aod history. And their descent, theii'habits, and their history, 
may profitably be reviewed again and again. Our research will be 
repaid. 

It is a memorable fact, that our rev<dulioa did not alter what may be 
termed the domestic character of the colonists. And yet they were 
descended chiefly oF ancestors bom under kingly government, and 
themselves had gloried <in their loyalty to a kingly govemment, until the 
operation of that government ceased, in their view, to be salutary ; or, to 
speak more correctly, until the measures of that government appeared to 
threaten their liberties, both sacred and civil, an interest which they 
regarded dearer than life. 

Our northern colonies were begun somewhat before the struggles com- 
menced in England, which produced " the Commonwealth." The first of 
the Stuarts had succeeded the last of the Tudors ; and both were the 
unbending asserters of royal prerogative — tyrants in personal constitution, 
and by no political constitutions bound to respect the rights of subjects. 

And yet we neither have, and have never bad, a nobility with heredt- 
taiy honors. How has this happened f It were worth while to inquire. 

Coo it be regarded as a sudicient answer to this question, that the court 
of the mother country did not migrate, but that the sovereign continued to 
reside at home ? 

Or, will it be asserted, that no respect to rank and title existed among 
those who engaged in the enterprise of settling this country ? 

Or, can it bo maintained that only outcasts from decent society united 
la colonizing North America ? 

Or, finally, did it simply " so happen," as we ordinarily say, in tha 
•common course of events, apparently without any forethought, design, or 
agency of any prominent individuals, or of the body of settlers them- 
selves ? 

In the present address, it will be expedient to discuss each of these 
■questions, and, having shown the inapplicability of the several reasons to 
the case, and the insufficiency of such replies to our question, to endeavor 
that a satisfactory reason be given. 

Previously, however, to entering distinctly on this discussion, it will be 
proper to remark, in addition to the observations that have been made, in 
reference to our nation, as such, that, though our population is of various 
descent, blending harmoniously in the general cultivation of our free in- 
stitutions, and enjoying the protection of equal laws, yet is it mainly of 
British origin. This term I use in preference to '^ English," though the 
latter be more common, and the mention of an Anglo-Saxon descent fre- 
quent and popular. For both Scotland and Wales-^es, and I may add 
Ireland, also — have furnished their several quotas. The German, Dutch, 
Swedish, French, and other accessions, have been either posterior to the 
British settlements, or their influence modified by them. 

Now, our institutions exhibit palpably British features ; and this as actu- 
ally, as our personal features, and constitutions, and minds, develop the 
characteristics of our origin, or descent. But in Great Britain, kingly 
power, as we have seen, was all but adored, and it was, and had been for 
ages, a land of nobles, wearing hereditary honors. 

And it may be remarked, m addition, that the forms of government 
prevailing generally in Europe, at the period, were monarchical, and ac- 
companied with the usual apparatus of feudal governments — with several 
exceptions, indeed. One of theae exceptions was Venice ; but her gov*

ernmeDt was avowedly mi aristocracy. Poland, too, called beneir a re- 
public ; simply, however, because ber king was elective, and her beredi- 
tary nobles, some of them bearing the title of princes, had a voice in 
creating him. Holland was a republic ; but in her several states heredi- 
tary nobles swarmed. Evea Geneva, and the little mountain-gem of 
republicaniam, San Marino, did not abrogate the order ; and Switzerland, 
with all ber freedom, retained it, at least in most of her cantons, down to 
the time of the revolution in France. 

We now revert to the several replies to our question. 

First, then : — Have we been left without the Corinthian capital to the 
pillar of our state, solely because we were originally but colonies ; and 
colonies, of course, carry not with them the monarch or the court, being 
only ofiiiets from the parent stock ? 

Yet how many instances does history fumbh of a different kind I 

Colonizing is no novelty. The world has been familiar with the idea 
and the effort from a very eariy period. Men could not be safely left 
together, in an unobstructed country, for a long period. Their 6rat dis- 
persion produced colonies. And where these colonies found themselves 
on the margins of seas, they learned to navigate them, in several instances, 
and for various purposes. 

In the book of Revelation, when the glon' and blessedness of a future 
age are presented in vision to the exile of Patmos, it is said, " And there 
s^l be no more sea."* But, however such an arrangement may answer 
to the moral and religious state of our race in such a period of their pro- 
gress, we may be certain that the existence of seas, hostile as it might 
appear to the progress of civilization, has, nevertheless — since men have 
not, thus far, yielded 'o the mild sway of a gospel of peace, and moulded 
themselves on its benevolent maxims — subserved purposes of high impor- 
tance. It has prevented the establishment of universal empire, that 
dream of insane ambition. It has separated the enterprizing, hardy and 
daring from the indolent and ineSicIent. It has sheltered the persecuted 
from their oppressors. It has given opportunity to correct political mis- 
takes, and to reconstruct society anew. It has rendered it necessary for 
men to recur to the first principles of natural justice ; and, more than 
all, it has called forth and developed the ingenuity, patience, fortitude and 
courage of many, who, by remaining in the parent nest, would but have 
hred amen to insignificance. 

But in these spirited efforts, Carthage had her queen, if what we term 
history be not fable. The colonies of Greece along the coasts of A^a 
the iJess, and of other parts of the Mediterranean — many of which, in 
their position and connection, as Hcercn well obser>'cs, remind us forcibly 
of tlic long line of British colonics on iho Atlantic shore of North Amer- 
ica — have little else in common wilh them, Cyrene was a monarchy 
from the first, and so continued. Sicily nurtured its tyrants. The south 
of Italy copied from Sparta ; and petty chiefs caballed and fought for 
power, and obtained and transmitted it, in many an Asiatic colony. The 
Pboctean migiation, which originated, indeed, in suc.h a cause, but event- 
oate4 in the founding of Marseilles, and impressing a Grecian character 
on the barbarous Gauls, was a noble enterprize, illustrative of the talent 
and civilization of a people trained to instruct mankind, hut to subjugate 
them likewise.

ond arc established. And so miglu it iiuxn boeji in regard lo ihc coloniz' 
ing of Amcriciu But so, la tltc kind providence of Uud, it happily was 
nor. 

II. We attend to the inquiry, if, then, no respect was paid to title and 
rank amonj; llie vfii\y vettlen of ihls country? 

Fur from such " levellistn," to use a plimsc of that dny, were both llieir 
feelings and their hatnts. For proof of this, an appeal might bo mado to 
their history, from the earliest period, and even down to the Tcvolution. 
The discrimination with which the lowest lilies were given is nolorrous. 
Goodman and goodwife, Mr. nnd mistress, wore so npprdprintely beMowed, 
that tho Bomewhol ludicroos punishment ia leconk'd by Ilntcliinson, of 
ooe oflendcr, that he should thcrea(\cr bo called only by his Cliristinn 
name, " and nol Mr., an fortnerly he used lo be" ; and he remarks, that 
"not more iJwn luilf a doxcn of the principal gentlenieii lix>k iha title of 
esquire." The attention paid lo Vone, as *>a man of qunlity,^^ nnd that 
by the people, generally, is well known, "niough young, and a stronger, 
the j>fi)}>lt- chose him their governor. 

In fnct, n deference nnd respectful demeanor toward penwns dignified 
by stolion, title, descent, or wealth, were hnbiluol. In tl)e«; hablla they 
had Ikpu educated, and they preferred them. Unlike a lawless mob. 
withdrawing ihemscUes from ine csiulilished forms of civilized society, to 
live wiili unbounded license, fnw frpm the inspeclton and annoyance of 
order and autliuriiy, lliey recognized and mainiaioeil ttic sapremscy of 
law, and reverenced the magistiucy and its powers. 

The exception to this remark, wnich must be made in rcfcretice to the 
Merr}'-mount adventurers, who trouhlod, for n nensun, the Old Colony of 
rtymouth, can hardly plead for a» abaiemctit of it, tuuce tlie contrast be- 
tween them nnd tho geuerality of the early settlers was loo marked to 
escape the observation cillicr of cotemporarics or historians. 

I have spoken of ihe terra " Icvellism," as cxprcssire of the feelings 
and action of a lawless mob, who denro to degrade ihcir superiors lo a 
condilioD no botler than their own. Such had been presented in Endish 
history before this period, and peculioHy in the reign of ihc eccoitd Ridi- 
ard, IM gmphieally depicted by Shakspeare. But, so far from partici- 
Dating in such n iceling, the eminent Collen, an oracle of his day, says, 
m n letter to Lord Siiy nod Scle, in 1636 — " Democracy, I do not con> 
ocyrc that ever Ood did ordvyne as a litt government cytticr for church 
or commonwealth. If the people bo governors, who shnll be governed? 
As for monarchy ond aristocracy, they ore both of them cicarely op- 
pnxived, ond directed in Scripture, yel so as fiiod] n-ferreth ihe sorer- 
aigotie [0 himselfe, and setleth up Theocracy in both, as the beet form of 
government In the Commonwcollh, as well aa in Ihc church." And, 
agrecAbly to ihiR, within twenty years a model or frame of gorernmeDl 
was published, having l>een drawn up from the Scriptures by this divine, 
in which ho proposes, tlitit " all the Majjistmio* hi: chosen out of the rook 
of noblemen or gentlemen^' tliat may be ^^amongst them, (be best that

ernment, either eminenl utiove others, or not inferior lo others," This

Geseral Court. To this sentiment, however, I shall have further occasion 
to refer. It did not govern the community. It was not embodied into 
the forms of law : and when the advice of the ministiy was required " in 
a. contention between the Governor and Assistants on the one part, and 
the House of Deputies on die other," "the Reverend Elders" being 
'^ made umpires," had this question proposed, ** Whether our government 
be a pure aristocracic, or mixt with a demociacie ? If mixt, whether it 
should not be mixt in all the administrations of the same ? " To this 
they replied, 1st, " Our government is not a mere aristocracy, but mixt of 
an aristocracy and democracy, in respect of the generall courte. 2dly, 
notwithstanding it be mixed in the generall courte, yet it followeth not 
necessary thereupon, that it^hould be mixed in all other courtes and ad* 
ministrations thereof." 

The Marquis de Beccaria, in his celebrated treatise on crimes and pun- 
ishments, lays it down aa a maxim, " Would you prevent crimes, let lib- 
erty be attended with knowledge." But our colonists of New, England 
had acted on the principle a century and a half, probably, before he 
wrote. And their early establishment of free schools is proof that they 
sought to frame their institutions for their whole community, full of respect 
as they were in regard to persons of distinction ; and that it was far from 
their desire as from their intention, to nurture, or permit by their neglect 
to grow up among them, a mere populace. But I anticipate. 

III. The question is to be discussed, " Could it be that only degraded 
outcasts formed the first settlements, among whom no men of education, 
or genteel accomplishments, were found ? " And is this the reason that 
we have no nobility with hereditary honors? 

Surely it was not thus. New England was not peopled by the mere 
dregs of the community. It was no Botany Bay, to receive the convicts 
of courts of law. And although, subsequently, not a few accessions were 
made of persons " sold for their passage," and prisoners of war ; yet our 
histories, our genealogies, our traditions, show us a totally different origin. 
For if, on the one hand, no single chieftain, aided by subordinate chiefs, 
with sul^ect bands^f warriors, invaded these shores to establish a military 
and regal sway ; so, on the other, they were not resorted to by the mere 
fugitives from justice, or those who, for misdeeds, were suffered no longer 
to pollute their native country. 

No I It is the glory and the happiness of New England, that, as was 
asserted, with warm enthusiasm, indeed, but with some show of reason — 
" God siAed three kingdoms, that He might plant His purest wheat in 
Americi," 

But, setting aside so suspicious an eulogy as this, we know that many 
of those with whom originated the plan of emigration, and who carried it 
into effect, were of that class of society which is not too far separated 
from the highest to be deemed unworthy of associating with them, nor 
too far removed from the lowest to deem them unworthy of its regard. 

How do our early historians dwell on " the sufferings of a daughter of 
a Doble eari," in encountering the hardships of an establishment at so 

rit a distance from her home I Yet that lamented lady was the wife, 
helpmate of a colonist, and that colonist a gentleman — a gentlentan 
of landed estate, in easy circumstances, while m England — a " gentle- 
man," technically and legally entitled — not in the sense in which a pro* 
nuacuous crowd is now so styled, by those

prevent the consideration of it, were it proputted. But such suppositiotu 
arc wholly at variance willi the facts, to which it Is necesary that attuulioo 
sliould now bu dmwn. 

Sudden changes arc not commOQ in tlio world. There is a gmdalioa

Uieir precursor*, and in our day an expositor. Ttft ttcosoos advance 
laisuroly, as it wore ; and day sinks into night, ond night breaks into day, 
not by an abrupt, atid immediate, and pninful change, but rather by a 
gradual procew. And so has it been in society, and in great political 
movements. Tlu> cause of changes may bo remote, as well as near. 
And changes do not occur without Uicir ad«fiik-ilv causes. These caueea 
we may not always see, as bos been hinted, or be able even to trace, at 
tlte period itself. Bui, in general, ilie sagacious ofasorver of human 
afiiiin will, sooner or later, effect the discovery. 

IlcrKc it is, ihni we cannot speak of llic American RovoUitton as an

So neither can the character or circuntstaoccs of the Falben of New

God has not made men for a state of pennaneot slarery to their 
feilow-men. He has endowed them, with powers capable of preventiag 
mch a state, and those poweis need only to be faithfully dereloped. Ner- 
eitbelesfi, aelf-tove is strong — ambition, daring — avarice craves with ea- 
gerness — and sensual appetite demands indulgence. Either of these 
paasioDS may be found in connection with circumstances favoring the 
gratificatioD of them. Hence the " wars and lightings," which have rav- 
aged the earth, producing subjection, enslavement and tyntnny. 

Not, however, that men are necessarily monsters, because they are 
kings. What a vulgar prejudice were this t And how unjust to many 
excellent men, who have received their power legitimately, and exercised 
it, not with wanton licentiousness, but Inoderately, legally, and with benefi- 
cence ! Tliere has been an Alfred, as there has been a Washington. 

But, in the play of human passions, and the resistance tbey have eo- 
countered, we may discern the elements of human liberty. So has it 
been in Great Britain. We trace its spirit in Gatgacus • and his com- 
patriots. We find it displayed, for a series of ages, in the mountain fast- 
neaaes of Wales. It gleams in the old gavelkind, a tenure, that, instead 
of originating among the Saxons, in Kent, to which it is ordinarily traced, 
as the tenure of "His Majesty's manor of Greenwich," is a primeval 
British institution, deriving its name from their ancient language, and the 
very opposite of the unjust and oppressive laws of primogeniture, the 
distinctive feature of the feudal sjrstem. 

The elements of liberty are discovered in the German forests,t and 
were brought thence by the Saxon conquerors of Enghind, and cultivated 
OD ber genial soil. Alfred, the English personification of all that mon- 
archy has of paternal care, and princely generosity, and heroic self- 
devotion, and courageous patriotism, has left it, as his recorded wish, 
" that the English Bhsll be as free as their own thoughts." 

And even after the Norman conquest, this spirit did > not always slum- 
ber. It awoke among the nobles first, and at Runnymede tbey wrenched 
from the feeble grasp of the least respected of all our ancient kings — 
for I claim them all as ours down to the third George — the immunities, 
pledges and privileges of Magna Charta.^ 

In the long and turbulent reign of Henry ITI., the weak but well- 
meaning son of a weak and flagitious father, the elements of popular 
liberty are detected afresh. *' Prom seeming evil still educing good,** 
die wise and gracious providence of God was preparing the way for a 
representative government — or, to speak more accurately, for the enjc^- 
ment by the people, through their own representatives, of a share in the 
government of dieir country. 

The hordes of barbarian nations who established themselves on the 
mine of the Roman empire, and laid the foundations of modem European 
kingdoms, did not surrender, in the forms of government they adopted, 
all their own natarel rights. The physical foree was theirs, and they 
(rften blended with it political privileges. Tbo estimable historian of 
Isabella and Ferdinand has exhibited the features of ancient liberty in

the poor with fratenial compassion. And it is one of the most affecting 
subjects of contemplation connected with their enterprise, that, in the 
" Generall considerations for the plantation in New England, with an 
answer to sereral objections " * — a tract, the authorship of which I have 
good authori^ for ascribing to Gov. Winthrop himself — it is stated as the 
third, that ** the land growes weary of its inhabitants, so that man, which 
is the most precious of all creatures, is here more vile and base than the 
earth they tread upon ; so as children, neighbors and friends, especially 
of (he poore, are counted the greatest burdens, which, if things were 
right, would be the highest earthly blessings." This is a beautiful addi- 
tion to the *^ first" of all the considerations, and which is so familiar to 
all, that the plantation ** will be a service to the church of great conse* 
quence, to cany the gospell into those parts of the world, and to raise a 
btilwarke against the kingdome of Antichrist which the Jesuits labour to 
rear up in all places of the worid.'* 

The Bible, I know, has passages which may be applied to the support 
of various and even opposite forms of government. But it represents the 
Israelites as setting out in the relation of brethren. When they should 
choose a king, like the rest of the nations, he was to be of their brethren, 
as the Lord should designate. When a malefactor was to be punished 
with stripes these were not to exceed forty, " lest," says the sacred 
record, " thy brother shall seem vile unto thee.** And when, under the 
Gospel, the Christian Church is established, that system wherein all that i» 
valuable in democracy — but I speak of New England Congregationalism 
as scriptural — may be enjoyed — a recognition is made expressly of " the 
brother of high degree," as well as " the brother of low degree," each 
enjoying equal privileges within the church, notwithstanding the acknowl- 
edged difference of worldly condition. 

Here, then, we have arrived at the spirit of their institutions. And 
who shall better expound it than that distinguished gentleman, who had 
the honor of leading the principal colony of Massachusetts, the first 
Governor Winthrop. "There is," said he, "a twofold liberty, natural 
(I mean as our nature is now corrupt) and civil or federal. The first is 
eoramoQ to man with beasts and other natures. By this, man, as he 
■tands ID relation to man simply, hath liberty to do what he lists ; it is a 
liberty to evil as well as to good. This liberty is incompatible and incon- 
mstent with authority, and cannot endure the least restraint of the most 
just aulhori^. The exercise and maintaining of this liberty makes men 
grow more evil, and in time to be worse than brute beasts." — "This is 
that great enemy of truth and peace, that wild beast, which all the ordi- 
nances of God are bent against, to restrain and subdue it. The other 
kind of liberty I call," says he, " civil or federal, it may be also termed 
moral, in reference to the covenant between God and man, in the moral 
law, and the politic covencmts and constitutions, amongst men themselves. 
This liberty is the proper object and end of authority, and cannot subsist 
without it ; and it is a liberty to that only which is good, just and honest. 
This liberty you are to stand for, with the hazard (not only of your goods, 
but) of your lives, if need be. Whatsoever crosseth this, is not authority,

What an admirahle dcacripiion a ihin of genuJno American liberty \ 

Certain noblemen at home, among uhom were the lords Suy and Scle, 
and lord Brooke, offered to the considenition of thum eoloaiats ■ few pro- 
pOnls, as conditions of- ibcir own removing to New England. Tboy first 
rcquiird, " That the coramonwrnhh should con»i« of two distinct nuilu 
of men, whereof the one ahoutd b<^ for them and ihnir heirs, gentlemen 
of ibc couatT)-. th« other for ihcra and tbcir heirs, freeholders.'" 

To this they reply : " Two distinct ranka we willingly aclcnowlodgc, 
from the tight of nature and Scripture ; the one of them called Trinces, 
or Nobles, or Elden, (amongst whom gentlemen have their place), the 
other the people. Hcn-ditury dif^ity or tmnors we willingly allow lo the 
fonner, aolcsa by tho scandalous and base conversaiioo of any of tbem, 
they become degeoeraic. Hereditary libeny, an esiaie of freemen, wo 
willingly allow to the other, unless they also, by some unwurtliv tuid 
slavish carriage, do disfranchise thenmelTes.*' Thus far vtas ngn-cii. 

But when it was urged, tliat civJt oiBCGS should he bestowed on persons 
of this rank, as such, and on their po«lority, the reply was decidedly, 
though rvspectfully given in tlie negativc;f and. tliough it was their 
intention and pmciice to chooso their goreriior "out of the rank of 
seotlemee," they stated ih&t personal •^ualificMiens, *' a spirit and ^tls 
fit for government ** must bo the foundation of their clioicc. "And thua," 
ttays (another of our reNpecied fellow* laborers) the able historian of tlie 
Uoiteo Slates, "the proposition for establishing hereditary itobility was 
defeated." 

What a liappy escape for us I Bat, though a legal nristocntcy was not 
establisliod or countenanced by our Puritan Fathers, human differenceii, 
as we have 9ocn, and the decencies of civil life were carefully regarded. 
Not only is ibrrc an cjiprcss rccogoilion of them, but respect was actu- 
ally paid to them. Nor should it be otberwue. For it cannot be denied, 
that there arc and nitu:l be diiitinctiofw among men. Could you equalize 
Iboir external couditioiiK to-day, these would be altered to-murrow. 

Families difirr in cltamclcr also. And races of men dilfor. 'Hteir 
moral sentiments, intellcclual power* and animal prupensi til's vary, to 
say the least They may all, nevertheless, have and enjoy their tifio to 
civil liberty, and in tlw eye of the law nrc equal. Yet in the constant 
tHckorings concenting arixtocmcy aikd democracy, let us ever remember, 
that there are other nristocmciea besides tboiie which are cstnblidved by 
mere law. We have them among ourselves, nor could we well be with- 
out ihein. Possession of office crratca for a time, nt least, one ciowi of 
aristoccBts — for they would not be bivcsied with it, if their portizanH did 
DOt reckon them among the "best" men. Wculth is onuther form —

felt everywhere among us, but having do authority by law. The mystic 
bailol-bozisa decided leveller; and the poor man's vote counts ac does that 
of the man of millions. Family, family, I repeat, even among ourselves, 
constitutes another class, and establishes its own circle — and what unquali- 
fied individual would wish to intrude, or be permitted with any personal 
comfort if he did I It is happy, in fact, that there are incitements to excel- 
lence, if that be the avenue to the favored coterie. Eminent talents and 
acquirements, too, constitute an aristocrBcy. And who more noble, than 
those whom we customarily style ^^ the nobles of nature ?" In fact, what- 
ever creates distinction has the effect to produce, while it lasts, the aristoc- 
racy whose existence among us we cannot deny. And even grace, and ele- 
gance, and beauty claim the honor, and it is granted by young and old, 
most cheerfully. 

We are emtuirked, my friends, on ** the tempestuous sea of liberty." 
And we may say to our cherished Massachusetts, to New England, to 
our blessed country — in the words of the poet, but slightly altered — 

" Thraugb the wild wstm, u thej roar, 
Witii watcbfnl eje, «nd ihuiiitlew mica,

Nor te»r tM rock, nor aeek the ahore :

And gildf the boiron of the deep.' " 



Ihteesstinb Geological Discotebies. — ^The woritmen emplc^ed in 
making excavations for the proposed improvements at the Upper Water 
Shops in this city, made a discovery on Monday of last week, which prom- 
ises to be of gresd value to the geological world. In preparing the foun- 
dations for the new buildings, it was found necessary to penetrate a con- 
siderable depth of red sandstone, which in this valley is remarkable for its 
fossil footprints, and here, at about six feet below the surface, a piece of 
rock was turned up, found to c<Hitain a number of fragments of petrified 
bones, some of which formed a complete bone eight inches in length and 
about an inch in diameter. Subsequently other foesitiferous rocks were 
found, containing similar bony fragments. 

Tbe bones that have been exhumed thus far have been examined by 
President Hitchcock, of Amherst, Lieut. Bent«i, and others, and are re- 
garded as portions of a skeleton, whether of bird or reptile is not yet 
known. If of the former the discovery will be of the highest value, as it 
will tend to convert European savans who are loth to agree with President 
Hitchcock in bis conclusions relative to the formations of the Connecticut 
valley, because, as they claim, no bones have yet been discovered to es* 
tabliui his theory based on the " bird-tracks." The whole matter, how- 
ever, is to be investigated by Mr. Hitchcock, and Profs. Agassiz, of Cam- 
bridge, and Silliman, of New Haven. In addition to the above, other 
interesting petri&ctionfl have been exhumed ; among them two eels each 
about two feet Icmg, and several leaves perfect even to a minute represeo- 
latioo of the fibres and Aems. — ^tringfield R^milieamy 15 Oct. 1866.

[The burial ground at Jamaica Plain is a part of the original panah 
lot. At n pnrith meeting held March 14, 1785, it was voted, *■ that 
the ground behind the mce^ng-house stable, wttcn wanted, idull be 
appropriutiil to a burying yard." I^e stable has been removed ■ and 
tne appropriated yard nuw lies directly in the rear of the Unrtarian 
Church, and fronts upon Eliut street. There are within its area 34 
tombs, which contain, probably, more remains than arc dcpositc-d in 
graves. Since the currenl of public opinion bos set so strongly in 
favor (if cemcteno!) in retired locaiioiis, and particularly since the con* 
■ecration of Fortst Hilh, comparatively few inlermenls hsre been 
made in this ground. It is even whispered, occastonollv, lliai ii would 
be good policy to ^' remove the deposits" entirely ; as fiy eo doing two 
or threo good house lots might bo gained. The ground belonging ex. 
clusively to the Unitarian St>ciely, they might aulliorize their Treasurer 
to givo wsmuity deeds of it ; but could lie, or tbey, warmni that tbc 
old occupants should not sometimes appear there to " revisit the glimpses 
of the moon," or thnt the ghosts of *'unmanoDriy corses," whose 
namoa no monuments ppeaon-o, should not so infeat "the nllnrgo," 
that no one, except a butler who " speaks latin," or a npiritualisi, could 
lay them. 

Tlicre iirc three other pTaooa within the limits of Jamaica I'lain, 
where burials have been made. 

In the summer of 1775, one or more repimcma were stationed on 
tho Plain, and many of the sotdivn (|uarli'rcd in dilTeronl liowu^u, upon 
iho inhabiutnts. (Seo JDr- Cray's Half Century ^^nutNt.) 

Three estates in tlic place were coufiiKattrd, and the houses eland- 
ing on them used as hospitals; Ttx., CJommwlorr Ijoring'si, fJovernor 
Bernard's, and CapL Benjamin HnllowflllV The Commodore's house, 
built in 1760, on a comer made by Iho Intersection of Austin BDd 
South streets, after having weathered Iho stonrnt of 95 years, Is at this 
day, taken in connection with its surroundingn, hardly exceeded by

aaj modem built mansion in its neighborhood. About a quarter of r 
mile back of this then hospital, the soldiers who died within its walls 
were buried. 

Col. Henly, who bad some chai^ over Burgojrne's captive army 
while at Cambridge, is recollected to have occupied the Loring house 
at that time. 

It came next into the possesuon of widow Ann (Hough) Doane, 
who, in 1784, married David Stoddard Greenough, Esq. Their son, 
and only child, Col. David Stoddard Greenough, owned it on the death 
of his father. Col. David Stoddard Greenough, of the third generation, 
now owns and occupies it ; he also having a son David Stoddard. 

It is creditable to the Greenough family that, through their several 
ownerships and occupancies, no violation of the graves of the revolu- 
tionary Mildiers, on their ground, has yet been allowed. The number 
of burials made Cannot now be ascertained, from the mounds bavine 
become levelled by the rains of so many years, and by the tread of 
cattle in feeding over them. But from the number of rude stones, prob- 
ably taken from walls or picked up in the fields, and set up as head 
and foot stones, they may be estimated at thirty — or more. 

The following inscription, pretty well executed for the time, was taken 
from the only headstone showing the mark of a graver's tool : 

"Here lies y* Body of serg'> Dan' Niles of E^ston, who Died Nov-, y* 
2- A. D. 1775. Aged 41 years." 

"Die Governor Bernard estate was situated on the westerly side of Ja- 
maica Pond, having thereon a considerable extent of shore and a libeml 
share of front on Pond street. After the removal of the soldiers from the 
premises, tbe first remembered occupant was Martin Brimmer, Esq., who, 
after a long residence, died there in 1804. Capt. John Prince bought the 
estate in 1806, and in 1809 took down and removed the old house, a part 
of which bad stood 141 years ; and in which no doubt many bumpers of 
good wine bad been drunk to Uie healths of the seven sovereigns of Great 
Britain, who had flourished during that period. 

Some few years before his decease, Capt. Prince procured a road to be 
laid out and made through the premises, from Pond street to Perkins street ; 
after the accomplishment of which, he divided the whole into good sized 
building lots, on several of which beautiful houses have since been 
erected. 

Tbe burial groimd on the Bernard estate was near a small fish pond, 
on elevated ground, at some distance back from the buildings. The 
spot vras plotigbed many years ago ; and it is said some of the coffins 
were disturbed in the operation. No one in the neighborhood remembers 
to have seen the ground before the ploughing, and therefore no estimate 
can be made of the number buried. 

Ilie Hallowell house, built about 1738, stands on a comer made by 
the intersection of Austin and Boylston streets. It has lately been pur> 
chased l^ Dr. B. F. Wing, who has thoroughly repured it, and, by the 
addition of one or more wings, has given it something more of quaint- 
ness than it previously exhibited. 

Capt. Haliowell married a Boylston, and in tbe right of his wife held 
the above property ; but his sympathies happening to be with tbe Roy- 
alist party, he left Soxbury in ^me Juule for Boston in 1775, and thence 
took passage for England, where he passed tbe remainder of his life. 
While tbe Hallowell bouse was used as a boapilal, the borialB from it were 



SI Bird—NevilL—Browtt. [Jan. 

made near the road, about forty rods from tbe house, on the way to 
Boylstoo street depot. 

Xa octogenarian pur noted for their accurate recollections, who were 
born and have always lived near the Hallowell house, think the first 
locaupant of the place, after the terra of its Ao<pt Ja2-tf y, was a Freoch- 
man, whose name was Lefabre ; and that it was he who, to the aston- 
ishment and universal indignation of the neighborhood, ploughed over 
and obliterated all marks of the graves. They likewise nay that people 
who had set up marks whereby to distinguish the graves of their friends 
or kinsmen, and came afterwards to remove tbcm, returned home disap- 
pointed and in sorrow. 

About the year 1789, Dr. Leprilete bought the premises and kept pos- 
BessioD till after tbe decease of Capt. Hallowell, when a son of his 
assumed the name of his mother's family — Boylstoo. This son. Ward 
Nicholas Boylston, presuming, or being advised, that the confiscation 
could hold no longer than his father's lifetime, came over, and in tbe 
name and right of his mother, laid claim to, and by process of law ob- 
tained the property, about the year IBOO. It now belongs to Mr. Thomas 
Boylston, by the will of bis grandfather, the late Word Nicholas BoyU- 
ton, Esq.

to America with Gen. Stuveysant, and arrived at New York in 1658, at

Netherlands. He brought with him money, plate, and jewels, having left

USHER. — '* The character of Anna, the Prophetess, considered and 
.applied. — In a Sermon preacfa'd after the Puoeral of that Honourable and 
E)evoul Gentleworaaa, Dame Bridget Usheh; who deceased at Boston, 
N. E. May 35th, 1723. Being a Widow of a great Age.—Publialted 
(with lome nlargetnaUtJ ai tke derire of the honourtd ExeaUort to her 
WUl. By Thomas Foxcrofl, M. A. And a Pastor to the Old Church in 
Boston. With a Preface by the Rev. Mr. Wadsworth. Boston : Printed 
by S. Kneeland. MDCCXXHI." 12mo. pp. 62. 

There is nothing in the Preface by Mr. Wadsworth respecting the fam- 
ily of Mrs, Usher. But her character he gives in these words :— ^' 1 never 
beard to the coatrary, but that aged Handmaid of the Lord, Madam 
Bridget Usher, was from her youth up, sober, virtuous and religious. Ever 
since I have known her (which has been many years) she has had (and 
I think justly) the character of an holy, blameless, close walker with 
God,"&c. 

In his Sermon Mr. Fozcrod dwells upon the character of "Anna the 
Prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher," to whom 
" our Anna" is compared. At page 13 he remaiks :— " You need not (I 
presume) be told the solemn occasion, which determined my thoughts at 
this time to such a subject ; it being known to all, what repeated bereave- 
ments have lately befallen us, in the death of several excellent aged 
women of our communion.*' In a note, to this the Author says, " Particu- 
larly Mrs. Martha Dasset, who died suddenly,, and went to rest on the 
Loin's day, March l?th. — And Dame Bridget Usher, who finished her 
long pilgnmage on earth. May 35th.'** 

These are all the facts I have been able to discover in Mr. Foxcroft's 
63 pages. But an account of the Usher family may be seen in the His- 
tory of Medford, Moss. Mrs. Usher was the widow of Dr. Leonard Hoar, 
third President of Harvard College, and daughter of Lady Alice LisI^ of 
whom (Lady Lisle) English history affords an account, at once lamenta- 
ble, as it regards her, and monstrous as it regards the state of the times. 
Her second husband was Hezekiah, son of Hezckiah Usher, a merchant 
of Boston. He died 25 May, 1728. 

WEBB. — " Genuine Christianity. — Or, a true Christian both in Life and 
in Death, glorifying the most glorious Lord. A Sermon on the departure 
of Mrs. Frances Webb, the virtuous Consort of Mr. John Webb, (a Pastor 
to one of the Churches in Boston.) Who expired Sept 14, 1721. In the 
28th year of her age. By C. Mather, D. D. and F. R. S. Boston : 1731." 
12nK>. pp. 20. 

The Sermon contains nothing of the personal history of Mrs. Webb, ex- 
cepting her religious character, and a note stating that she was a daughter 
of Edward Bromfield, Esq. 

WEBB. — "A burning and shining light extinguished. — A SermoD 
preached the Lord's Day after the Funeral of the late Rev. Mr. John 
Webb, Pastor of the New North Church in Boston, who died April 16,

WINTHROP.— " The high value of a great and good name, and Death

in Cambridge, May 9th, 1779. Bcins the Lord's Day after the Interment 
of the Hon. John Winthrop, Esq., Hollis Professor of Mathematics and 
Natural Philosophy in Harvard College, Cambridge, LL. D. and F. R. S. 
Who departed this Life May the 3d, 1779, in the 65th year of his age, 
emd in the 41st of his Professorship. By Samuel Langdon, D. D. Presi- 
dent of Harvard College. Boston : 1779." 8vo. pp. 23. 

" The Hope of immortality. — A Discourse occasioned by the Death of 
the Honorable John Winthrop, Esq., LL. D. and F. R. S.," &c. " Delivered 
at a Public Lecture in Har\-ard College. By Edward Wiggiesworlhy A, M., 
HoUis Professor of Divinity. Published at the request of the Students. 
Boston, New England." 

President Langdon's Sermon is what may be called a very good old 
fashioned Discourse, and he tells us the important events in Mb. Win- 
thkof's life. He thus commences hia " Application ;" — " And now, 
brethren, how can I forbear bringing into your view that remarkable ex- 
ample of a great and good name which you have in our most valuable 
deceased friend and brother, the Honorable Dr. Winthrop, whose remains 
we followed yesterday to the grave." In referring to the ancestors of 
Hb. Wintheof, he says, " It may be remarked, that through the various 
civil commotions and revolutions in England, that family always took part 
on the side of the liberties of the people." 

In 1738 he was chosen Hollis Professor of Mathematics. In 1765 he 
was chosen into the Corporation of Harvard College. In 1771 the Univer- 
sity of Edinburgh conferred the degree of Doctor of Laws upon him. " In 
1773, when the contention with Great Britain for the liberties of these 
American States began to run high, he was chosen into the Council of this 
State [Colony] and gave his assistance in all the measures token to secure 
his country from the power of oppressors, and prevent the calamity of a 
civil war." 

Mr. Wiggleneorth is more particular respecting the personal history of 
Mr. WiMTHROP. But^as President Allen has nearly the same in his 
American Biography, that need only be referred to. As the important 
note on page 23 is omitted by Dr. Allen, it is here extracted : — '^ The 
Doctor's descent was as follows : 1. Adam Winthrop, Esq., Sergeant at 
haw. Lord and Patron of Grotoo in Sufiblk ; his eldest son was, 2. Adam 
W., Esq., Master of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and Vice Chancellor of that 
University ; his eldest son was, 3. Adam W., Esq., of Grotoo ; his eldest 
son was, 4. John W., Esq., of Groton, afterwards Governor of the Colony 
of )bssachusctts Bay, who was born the 12th of June, 1587, and died at 
Boston the 26 of March, 1649. His fourth son was, 5. Adam W., Esq., 
one of the Council. He died Aug. 1700. His eldest son was, 7. Adam 
W., Esq., one of the Council. He died Oct 2d, 1743. His second son 
was, 8. The deceased Professor." But Mr. Wigglesworth probably errs 
io making out 8 generations ; he should strike off one of his first Adams. 
The pedigree in the History and Antiquities of Boston is believed to be 
entirely correct See page 72 of that work.

" Od Thursday night the SevcreDd Mr. Gardner, Mioister of Lancas- 
ter, waa unfortunately shot by the Sentinel on the Watch, supposing him 
to be an Indian climbing over the Walls of the fortification; of which 
Wound he dyed in an hour's space or little more." — Botton Neiea Lelter^ 
No. 28, Ocloba- 30, 1704. 

" Boston. In our Numb. 28, As we then received it, we gave you the 
Account of the Death of the Reverend Mr. Gardner, Minister of Lancas- 
ter ; and having since had a perfect and exact account of the same from 
Eye and Ear Witnesses; we thought it expedient to insert it here, to 
prevent various reports thereof: And is as follows. 

" That a man being killed the day before between Groton and Lancas- 
ter, and the Indians having been seen the night before nigh the Town, 
Mr. Gardner (three of the men belonging to his Garrison being gone out 
of Town, and two of the remaining three being tyred with Watching and 
Travelling in the Woods after the Indians that day) being a very careful 
as weil as couragious man, concluded to Watch that night himself; and 
accordingly went out into the little Watch-house that was over one of the 
Flankers, and there stayed tilt iate in the night, whence and when he wai 
coming down (as it was thought) to warm him. The man that shot him, 
who was not long before sleeping by the fire, came out, and whether be- 
tween sleeping and waking, or surprized with an excess of fear, fired 
upon him as he was coming down out of the Watch-house, through b 
little Trap-door into the Flanker, where no man having the exercise of 
his Reason could suspect the coming of an Enemy, or suspect him to be 
so, when in a clear Moon light night he was so nigh him. Mr. Gardner 
(though his wound waa in his breast, being shot through the vitals) came 
to the door, bid them open it, for he was wounded ; after he came in he 
fainted away, but coming to himself again, asked who it waa that shot 
him, and when they told him he prayed God to foi^ve him, and forgave 
him himself, for he believed he did not do it on purpose ; and with a 
composed Christian frame of spirit, desired them that were bitterly 
lamenting over him, not to weep but to pray for him, aod comforted bis 
sorrowful wife, telling her he was going to Glory, advising her to follow 
him ; and in about an hour Dyed, leaving his sorrowful friends to lament 
the loss of so worthy and desirable a Person." — Boston Neaa Letter^ 
No. 31, 20 Nov., 1704. 

Fire at Harvard College. 

" Cambridge, Oct 29. About I of the clock in the morning there 
happened a Fire in Harvard College^ occasioned by a foul Chimney 
which took fire, and the soot being blown into the Belfry, fired some old 
Boards, and melted the Lead (wherewith the Colledge was covered) and 
then fired the Planks ; but one of the Tutors having the Key of the 
scuttle, which was'lockt and barr'd, waa absent, wherefore 2 of the Stu- 
dents putting their backs to the scuttle, forced it open, and threw water 
briskly, so that they quickly extinguished the Fire, which otherwise had 
been of very ill consequence." — Botton NewM Letter, No. 29, Nov. 6,

he served with three colleagues, nil of whom he survived. He died on the 
27lb of June, 17C9, aged nearly 81 years. He was an excellent minister, 
an honor to hia calling, and his memory cannot fail to be cherished as 
long as there is virtue in ihc world. His oibrr colleagues were tlic Rev. 
Thonms Prince, the Rev. Aloiander Gumming, and the Rev. Samuel 
Blotr. The hitler survived Mr. Sowalt. 

In 1724 Mr. Sewall was chosen President of Harmrd College, btit that

was Klixabclh Woltey, who died before bim. One child only survived 
turn, a son, SamocI, Deacon of ihe Old South Church from 1763 to 1771. 
He received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from the ITniversJiy of

SHIRLEY. — William Shirley, Esq., Governor of Massachusetts, and 
Lieut-General in the British army, was sop of Thomas Shirley, Esq., of 
Preston in Sussex, and was bom in 1698. T^e immediate ancestor of 
Tbomu Shiriey, Esq., was Sir Thomas Shirley of Whiston in the same 
County. Thomas, the grandfather of the Governor, married Elizabeth, 
daughter of Drew Stapley of London, by whom, inter alios, he had Wil- 
liam, a third son, who had William, an tmly son, merchant of London. 
This son married Elizabeth, daughter of John Goodman, and died in 1701. 
These were the parents of the Subscriber for the Chronology. Gov. 
Sbiriey^s first wife (by whom be had his children) was Frances, dau. of 
Francis Baker, of London, l^ey had William, Secretary to Gen. Brad- 
dock, and with tbat unfortunate Commander was killed on the banks of 
the Monongabela, 1755. John, a Captain in the army, died at Oswego ; 
Tltomas, Ae only surviving Son, was bom in Boston, Governor of the 
Leeward Islands, a Maj. -General in the army, created a Baronet in 1786. 
He A. in March, 1800, leaving a son, the late Sir William Wiuden Shir- 
ley, of Oat Hall, Wivelsfield, Sussex, who, dying nne prok., Feb. 1815, 
tlw Baronetcy became extinct. Of the daughters of Gov. Shiriey, Eliza- 
beth m. Elicdum Hutchinson ; Frances m. William Bollan, Esq. ; Hai^ 
tiet ra. Robert Temple, Esq. ; Maria ra. John Erving, Esq. Mrs. BoUan 
d. 21 March, 1744, in her 34Ui year, in giving birth to her fiist child. 

Gov. Shiriey built the spacious mansion in Rozbury, since the well 
known residence of the late Governor William Eustis. He d. in Rox- 
bury, Maroh 34th, 1771, aged about 77. Mr. Sfatriey came to this Coun- 
try aiiout 1734, and was Governor of Massachusetts Bay from 1741 to 
1756. He was an honor to the Country, and did much to give it impor- 
taoce in En^and. It is unpleasant to note at this day, that the accounts 
^ren of him partake of the partisan stamp of Mr. Shirley's time ; for be 
was not without enemies ; and their accounts have been too much credited 
by our most prominent historians, who have overlooked the other side <^ 
the questkHi. See Hist, and Antiqs. of Boston, pages 613-14, 621, 627- 
8. — See also Allen, Biog. Diet, and Dr. O'Callaghan's able note in Doe- 
mmlorjr Hitl ofNev York, volume now in press. 

Had we space, it would not be to the present purpose to dwell upon the 
diffeieid blanches of the Shiriey family, though their history is of much 
geoeval interest This notice will therefore be closed by an inscription 
once standing (and periiaps now) in St. Bartholomew's Church the Less. 
It was legible one hundred years after Stow made his ** Survey,'* and was 
erected about 1456. Edward Hatton thus introduces it in his " New 
View of Lcmdon," which be prii^d in 1706 : — 

" Co the sooth side of the Church, near tbe Yestiy door, a large gnve-

certainly aeed do apolc^ for il in oura, now that we are removed jiurt 
400 years ttom ilie tima of lom SHiXLsr's death, and 190 from Haiton'a

Stow copied the same Inscription, but he chon^d the orthography to 
that of his own lime, which doca not appear to be morr; intelligible. Bui 
the Old ChroDicler added this ctirious piece of infonnation : — " Thia Gen*

they came, and if of kin to those of the name now here, how 
nearly, cannot probably at (his distant day be determined. 
The ancestor, who first came to America, of a family now 
iMoKT." somewhat numerous in Massachusetts, was Jonathan Amory, 
who establbhed himself in South Carolina about the year 1685. He was 
boro in the county of Somerset, in England, not far from the year 1640. 
His father owned the estate of St. Anna, and other lands in that county, 
which in the next century vested in his descendants in this country, but 
too heavily encumbered to be of value. 

This fomily, sonietimes supposed to be a branch of the Montfort 
FAmanry familyt of France, a supposition strengthened by the authority 
of the teamed antiquarian Hooker, was numerous in Endand during the 
eariier perioda of its history, in the counties of Dorset, Devon, Somerset 
and Oxford. In the latter county, they were long eeized of the manor 
of BletchingdoD, and in Dorset sti)l exists as a farm-house, D^Amoty 
Court, at one period in the family of Rives, with a famous oak once stand- 
ing near by, called the D^ Amory Oak. A father, son, and grandson, 
lumied Thomas Amory, in succession, between 1560 and 1630, possessed

Bnrrow tiall in Essex, and many cMhcr places in England are mcntioard 
u at diflercnt timcH their property. Some of the name were Mummooed 
oa [H>«rs to parliament, ano tbcir barony is slated by Burlcc to be vlill ex- 
taut ia abeyance, in tlic family of Sir Waller Raleigh. Sir Roger 
d'Aniory marrieil iliv grnndduuglili-r of E^lward the Fini. SirRidiard 
was long a leader in the wars or EilKard the Third. Sir Roben fougbl 
at Crecy, and the CAplviU of Sir Jolin occuinf suiito tntbrtuiiiuig pages of 
Froisanrt. In tlie Iu9t cciiturj'. llic Rev. rliomaa Amury- of London, a 
digtioguisliod Unitarian Dtviiiv, published fievoml volumes of sermons and 
other theological works, aod another Thoma* Amory in 1756, John 
Buncle and oilier writings, whkli are still read in Eooland, and have 
their admirera. Tlie name has been variously spelt. i\%e Damera, for* 
mcrly carls of T>orchc8tcr, now rcpre«cntc(I in the female line by the 
carla of Portorlingtoa, bearing the name of Damcr, traced in Collita their 
origin to the name line of ancestry. There ia believed to exist in the Ulster 
Herald CHficca [K:>Iigree,carr)'ing the line of aneeiitors of Jonathan AnKtrj-, 
the first settler of the name in Carolina, back, through many ccnturio. 

His father died about 1650. He \c(i five sons and two daughtCTa. 
Thomas, the eldest, married a daughter of the 19lh Lord Kerri', ancestor 
of the present MarquU of Lonsdownc. In consequence probably of this 
conncciion, be removed to Iretoiid, and purchased estates in Kcrrj-, worth 
;f600 a year. Ha died ia 1667. In his will, on parchment, now m the 
posseaaion of Col. Thomas C. .\irx)ry of Boston, he is sliled of Galy in 
tlie county of Kerry. He Utt one son, Tltonuts, and Iwo daugbteni, 
one of whom, Elizabeth, becunie Mrs. Cruker, uod the other Mr». 
Han. The son, in sovoral Biograghical Dictkmoriea called Counsellor 
Amory, is in his will described as of Bunratty, a castle slill standing oa 
the nnlts of the Slmiutun, where \w resided. He died in 17S8. He 
married about 1700, Mrs. Lutlrcll of LuttrcJlstown, and afterwards 
again, hia widofl' surviving him till 1730. He was the father of Ttiomss 
Amor)-, author of the Life of John Buncle, born in IGtfl, and who 
died in 17S8, at the sap of 97, and of a daughter Lucy, who innnied 
Terence McMahon. Dr. Robert Amory of Yorkshiro was son of the 
author, and at the lime of his father's death in 1788, bad three sons hold- 
ing commiiisions in the British service. Robert, a brother of Thomas 
of Galway, born 1635, settled in the West Indies. Ho purcltased lands 
in iJie county of Clare in Ireland, worth ;£'800 a year, and died no* 
married uii'l ititcstalc in 1710. John, another brother, bom 16S8, died 
in Galway in 1730, aged over 90 yeant. Of Henry, another brother, 
mcntiQoea in tlic parchment will, nothing is known. Jooaihun, the 
first aeltlcr in this countn*, was the youngest of the brothers, ni>d iho 
only one besides the eldest Thomas of Galy, who left descendants. Their 
listers were Mrs. Hoakina, who died in 1719, and Mrs. Conyeis, slUl 
living in 17S0. 

Jonaihnn Amory. bom, as already stated, in Someraetshirc, was brought 
up under the care of his elder brother, and resided some time near him in 
Ireland. He was at one time a merchant to Dublin. He married Misa 
Rebecca Houston, who died in 1665, in the West Indies, where hr, as 
also hia brother Robert, wero then rtsiiling. Soon after Iwr licnih, he 
went to Charleston, S. 0., married again, invested largely in lands and 
houses, was elocied Speaker of the Colunial Lcgittlature, and subneqnritily 
Tk^asurcr of the Province, the finrt Treasurer of the Proprietors. He 
died in the fall of 1699, of yellow fever, and his widow, Mrs. Martha 
Amor^-, three moDllis aAeiwoids. Wo have copies of their wills, and in

that of Mrs. Amory, Madam Sarah Rhett, wife of Col. William Rhett, 
was appointed executrix. The children of JonathaQ of Carolina were, 
Tbomaa, Robert, who died young, a daughter, who married Joseph 
CroBkejs, Ann, wife of James Ramsay, and Saiah, wife of Governor 
Arthur Middleton. Judge Johnson of Charleston, and Dr. Joseph John- 
son, his brother, were descended from the Treasurer, but the descent 
is not correctly stated in the Traditions of the Revolution, by the latter. 
The Rev. Isaac Amory, their great uncle, was gi&ndson of the Treasurer. 
He studied Divinity, was ordaioed in England, and came out to South 
Carolina, and became Rector of St. John's, on John's Island, in the year 
1765. He returned to England before the Revolution, and obtained a 
rectoiahip near Newarii upon Trent,in LiiKolnsbire. His wife was Maiy 
Wilson. He had no children, and died 1789 at Rockingham. His widow 
lived till the year 1833. His elder sister Sarah was the grandmother of 
Judge Johnson and Dr. Joseph Johnson, and his younger sister Mary died 
oiunarried before 1800- 

lliomaa Amoty was bom in limerick, Ireland, in 1682, and accom- 
panied his father to Carolina. In the year 1696 be was sent with bii 
sister Ann to their relatives in England, to be educated, placed under the 
care of his cousin. Counsellor Amory, and sent to Westminster School. 
AAer his father's death he entered the counting-house of M. Ozell, a 
French merchant in London, who in the year 1709 sent him to the 
Azores as supercargo. He here established himself as a merchant, was 
appointed Dutch and English consul, and, making only an occasional 
Tiut to Europe, remained many years on the Islands. Correspondence in 
those da^ was not easy, and be had but little intercourse with his family. 
ffis uncle John in Galway, and cousin Thomas of Bunratty, wrote him at 
long intervals, and his sister, Mrs. Middleton, and Madam Rhett, who had 
charge of bis property in South Carolina, wrote him urgently and repeat- 
edly to cotne to Charleston. 

He was for a long tiote too much engrossed by his aflairs and the duties 
of his consulates to leave the Islands, and it was not before the 4th of 
June, 1719, that, resigning his office and winding up his aflairs, he em- 
bariied for Boston, and arrived there after a passage of thirty-nine days, 
OD the 13th of July- His letter and account hooka, of which many vol- 
umes remain, written in English, French and Portuguese, in all of which 
be seems equally at home, furnish many interesting particulars of his 
plans and movements. He passed the following winter with his sister in 
Carolina, and in the spring travelled over Pennsylvania, New York and 
Rhode Island. Bctuming to Boston he met Hiss Rebecca Holmes, daugh- 
ter of Francis Holmes, wbo passed his winters in Charleston, and sum- 
mers at the north, and by the Providence of God, as she says, married 
her in May, 1731- He bought lands at the south end of Boston, built a 
bouse and wharves, hired a counting-house of his friend Gov. Belcher on 
the Long Wharf, engaged in commerce with England, the Azores, and 
Caiolinas, and died here in 1738.' His widow long survived him, and 
died in Boston, at the age of 70, in 1770. Their children were three 
•ona and two daughters. A copy of his portrait, after the s^le of Sir 
Godfrex Kneller, is still in the possession of bis family. 

L l^ioinas, bis son, bom April 22, 1733, graduated at Harvard 
College in 1741. He studied Divinity, but never took orders. As eldest 
■OQ, he inherited a double share of his father*B estate. He married in 
ITGi, Elizabeth, dau^iter of William CcdEin, and purchased the house 
built bf Goremor Betcber at the comer of Quvard and Wa rii ington

Rogers and Mr. Joseph Taylor were also at one period partners of die 
house. Their LcUcr Books from 1700 lo 1790 give very interesting 
accounts of the events and agiiaiiona of that Rlormy period. They, long 
before the war, prvdided what actually ensued, a sanguinary conflict and 
cvcDtful acpanition from the mother coumr)', if the gDVcmmcnt persisted 
in its measures of coercion. Many of Mr. Amory's own letters were pub- 
ItsHod in the English papers, and to one, a correspondent a member of

large estate to his brother John and John's children, who, during their 
&tber''s absence in Europe at the time of the Revolution, had been left to 
his care. 

5. John, born in 1728, was a partner with bis brother Jonathan, and 
married Catherine, daughter of Hufus Greene. He built and occu- 
pied the house at the comer of Tremont and Beacon streets, where the 
Albion now stands. In 1774 it became important that a partner of the 
house should co over to England, and Mr. Amory was selected, and his 
wife went wita him. The war soon after broke out, and Mrs. Amory 
lost her health, and after a protracted illness died in 1778. He was then 
regarded as a Refugee, and not permitted to return. His sympathies 
were, however, aU with his countrymen, and the stru^le in which they 
were engaged for their liberties, and he left England and resided on the 
Continent. Shordy before the peace he returned to America, but landing 
in New York, then occupied by the British, he was not allowed to join his 
family in Boston. His name tuu) been placed on the list of proscribed, 
and preliminary measures were taken to confiscate his property. His 
brotlwr wrote him, should this be done, he would always share what he 
had with him. In 1788 he resided at Providence, some of his ftmiiy 
being with him, and the next year, through the influence of his friends, 
and upon his petition to the legislature declaring his allegiance to the 
new government, he was allowed to return to Boston. He died in 1805, 
leaving six sons and four daughters. The portraits of himself and his 
wife, hy Copley, are in bis family. 

Of me children of Thomas Amoiy, the first settler in Boston, and 
Bebecca Holmes, Thomas the eldest, and John the youngest, alone have 
descendants now existing. 

Tie children of Thomas Amory and Eliz. Cof&n, were the following : — 

1. Rebecca, bora 1766, married Dr. Aaron Dexter, a physician and 
professor of chemistry at Harvard College. He long resided on Milk 
street, opposite the head of Pearl street. His children were Thomas A. 
Dexter, Charles P. Dexter, George H. Dexter, John M. Dexter, Mrs. 
Wm. D. Sohier, Miss Catherine Dexter, and Miss Marian Dexter, d. 1830. 

3. Thomas C., bom 1767, married in 1795 Hannah Rowe Linzee, 
daughter of Caption John Linzee, who commanded a British vessel of 
war in our harbor at the time of the battle of Bunker Hill. 

Mr. Amory was engaged extensively in commerce with bis cousin, 
William Pa3rne, and after 1800 with his brother, Jonathan Amory, and 
was very successful in his enterprises. It is the object of this sketch 
merely to preserve facts and dates for those who may be interested in 
them, and any attempt to portray character would be out of place. It 
may be permitted to say, that he was among thoee of his day m Boston 
most beloved and respected, and his death the cause of very general sor- 
, row and mourning. His residence in Boston was at No. 21 Franklin 
Place, and in summer in Brookline. He died in 1812. Mre. Amory long 
mirvived him, and died Dec. 1846. His children were Col. Thomas C.

Loving and much respected Master. 

My Lore is reotembered unto you and my dame Hopeing you are 
wel as I am at the writing hereof, blessed be God for it. My wiff 
demars to be remembered unto you and my dame, and wee are yet in 
oar batntations ibro^ Gods marsi, but we are in expectation of the enimi 
everi day if God be not the more marsiful unto us. I have been out 
7 weeks my self and if provisions had not grown short we had folood 
the emmi into your borders, and then I would have given you a visit 
if it had been poenbel, for I went out a volintere under Capt. Wards- 
worth of Hilton, but he is coled bom to leoat about there owne toun, 
so I left off the desire at present. 

There is many of our friends are taken from us — Cap. Jonson of 
Boxberi was slaine at Naragansit, and Will linccm died before his 
wound was cured ; filup Curtu was slaine at a wigwame about Mend- 
ham ; but we have Ifiat Init one man with us these wars. My mother 
Tose is ded and my sister Swift. I pray remember my love to John 
Eli^ and his wiff and the rest of our fields, arid bainsTer it is like 
to fere with as God knows, and wee desiare to comit all oar affiuis into 
his hands. So having nodiing els desiaring yoor praiais for us I rest

NOTES ON THE BOWDOIN FAMILY. 

Tin following recorda relate to the Vtf^Dia biaocb, descended from 
John, son of the immigrant : — 

" At a Conrt held by ber Majestie's Justices of tbe Peace for Noith- 
amptOD County, this 29 day of March, 1706. Present Capt. William Har- 
mansoQ, C^L BeDJamio Nottingham, Mr. Hillary Stringer, Mr. John 
Harmanson, Mr. John Powell. 

** This daye was Presented to this Court by John Bowden, a letter of 
Attorney to hts Brother, James Bowden, Mariner, living in Boston in 
New England, which Letter of Attorney was acknowledged in open 
Court by the said John Bowden, and proved by the Corporal Oaths of 
lliomas Savage & Thomas Harmanson, Junior, tmcl at the request of tbe 
said John Bowdoin is ordered to be put upon Record." 

The power of Attorney is stilt In record, but only adds the fact that 
this John Bowdoin was also a mariner. 

From a letter of Peter S. Bowdoin, Esq., of Cherrystone, Northampton 
CO., Va., dated in IBM, I learn that his father was Peter Bowdoin, who 
d. 1825, learing three sons and two daughters. His.younger sons are 
DOW living in Philadelphia ; his daughters married respectively Prof. 
George Tucker, now of Philadelphia, formeriy of the Univeisity of 
Vuginia, and Dr. Smith of Northampton co., Vo. 

Belthazer Bayard, who d. Dec., 1T78, aged 71, hod six children by 
his wife, Mary Bowdoin; the names of diree of them were, Samuel, b. 
2S March, 1738; Mehitable, b. 36 April, 1741; Mary, m. Melatiah 
Boom, and had issue, Sylvanua and a dau., wife of Col. Greatton. 

For the descendants of Hon. James Pitts and Elizabeth Bowdoin, see 
Biidgman's " Memorials of the Dead in Boston," pp. 274-6.

Valentine House., Brook ^reet. Upper Clapton, I 
Nmt London, England, Sept, 25, 1855. ) 
To the Editor of the Kcw Eng. Hbt. and Gcneal. Register : 

Sir, — On visitiDg the Library of the British Museum with a view of 
treeing the connection of my family (which came from Boston on the 
nipture of the United States with England) with that of Sir Martin 
Bowes, Lord Mayor of London, temp. Eliz., I discovered the eustence 
of your Society, the volumes of which seem so full of interesting rec- 
ords of a similar nature, that I have ventured to addieas you, in the 
hope of your being able, by making my aim knoirn, to assist me, through 
some of your talented correspondents. 

My object is to discover the individual of our name who first settled 
in America, nnd I enclose a short Pedigree containing all I have yet 
been able to learn of the families of Bowes, Hancock and Stoddard^ 
from my father's papers. John Hancock the first President of Congress, 
and who as such signed the ever memorable ** Declaration of Inde> 
pendence," was my grandfather's first cousin ; and William Bowes and 
John Hancock were left conjoint heirs to Thomas Hancock, Esq., their 
mutual uncle. 

1 think that this circumstance will make the enclosed Pedigree of 
interest to your readers, and perhaps induce them kindly to aid me in 
my researches. I know from the Arms that the first Nicholas Bowes 
mentioned in the Pedigree must have been a descendant of Sir Mar- 
tin, the Lord Mayor, (of whose family I have full accounts from re* 
eordfi in this country), and most probably he was the ton of the first 
of the name who emigrated to New England. The most common 
name in our fiimily is William (no Nicholas occurring in the Eng- 
hA Pedigrees), and William, you will observe, is the name of the 
eldest son in every descent of the American family tree. The only rela- 
tives I have must be living in America at the present time. 

As I may not have sketched the Arms (which I have copied from 
die old fiimily seals) correctly, I enclose my late father's old Book-Plate.* 
I have made my communication as short as possible, not to encroach 
on your valuable pages, and trusting you will have the kindness by insert- 
ing thb to aid the object I have in view, I remain, sir, your ob't serv't, 

AHTHrR Bowes.

1856u] Daeaidanis of Matthew Adamt. 



DESCENDANTS OP MATTHEW ADAMS. 

H>. Editob : — ^Matthew AdamB was one of three brotfaen, who flotir- 
iahed in the first half of the last century ; all of whom were distiDguished 
■neo. The Hon. John Adania, of Nora Sco^, probably the eldest of the 
three, was the father of the Rer. John Adams, who was graduated at 
Harrard College, 17S1, and died at Cambridge in 1740, aged 36, much 
distinguished as a writer, preacher, and poet. The other of the three 
brothers was the Bev. Hurii Adams, first minister of Ojrster Biver Parish, 
(now Durtmm,) in Dover, Pi. H. He was gruluated at Harvard College 
1697, settled in Durham 1716, where be died 1750. Tlte family name 
of his wife was Winbum, and they left several childreo, many of whose 
deseendanti are living in this city and vicinity. Of Matthew, Vt. Franklin 
says in his autobiogimphy, (see Sparks's ed., p. 16,) he " was a merchant, 
an ingenious, sensible man, who had a pretty collection of books, fre- 
quented our piinting office, took notice of me, and invited me to see his 
library, and very kindly proposed to lend me such books, as I chose to 
read." The most common editions of Franklin's autolnography are cop- 
ies of die first. Engli^ edition, which was, awkwardly enough, only ■ 
rt-traK»ialitm from the French edition, which bad been translated and 
published in French, from dw Dr.'s manuscript. Ilie word " merchtaU^ 
by being translated into French, and then back agtun into English, came 
to be " tradename and bence the authors generally, who have spoken of 
Ifattbew Adams, have called him a mechanic. See the Biiwraphical 
Dictionaries of Elliot, Allen, A. Bradford, and the Mass. Hist. Collections, 
vol. 5, p. 211. But I have the authority of your friend, the learned his- 
torian of Boston, for saying that he was in fact a merchant, as Dr. Frank- 
lin originally wrote. We know from other sources that he was a popular 
writer, and thiU he, with Dr. Mather Byles and others, ccmstitoted a club, 
which furnished literary essays periodically to the New England Journal, 
•ad other papers published by the Franklins, and which essays were 
afterwards reprinted in more formidable monthly magazine*. The histo> 
rian of Boston, p. 634, says that Elliot and Allen " appear to have known 
nothing of bis axkcestnr." For aught that spears, the same may, with 
equal truth, be said of the learned historian himself, and every other au- 
thor who has mentioned him. I certainly shall not have the presumption 
to attempt to supply this deficiency, " for what can a man do that Cometh 
after the king"? All I shall attempt will be to ^ve an account ni some 
of his descendants ; but hope, nevertheless, that ydu may be able to find 
some one, among your society of antiquarians, bold enough to undertake 
to give you the much-desired informjilinn in regard lo his ancestors. 

His firat wifb and mother of his children watt Katharine Brigdon, whom 
be married Nov. 17, 1715. They bod five uliiUlren— Matthew, William, 
Kadwrine, John,* b. June 19, 1725, and Nathaniel,* b. 17^. His second 
wife was Meriel Conon,whom be married June 10, 1734 ; and he died in 
1768. Of the history of the three first children we have no knowledge, 

itAia* the third son and fourth child of Matthew,' was graduated at 
Harvard College, 1745, and settled as minister in Durham, 1748. Ifa 
was dismissed m 1778, and soim after re-aeltled in Newfield, or Parsons* 
field. He., over a parish embmciog several precincts. He moved hia 
fiunily thither in Eeb., 1781. See Greenleaf's Sketches of the Ecclesi- 
astical Hisbny of Maine, p. 113. He is said to have been ** a man of

Gtiualogy of the Greenleaf Family. By Rev. Jonathan Grezhleaf. 

pp. 116. 

We have ascertained that Enoch Graenleaf, Jr., of Halden, Uasa., wbo is mentioned 
m this book, frecendj noticed in this paper,) as a " common ancestor," was a graodsan 
of Edmnnd Gnenkaf, the dTcr, of Boston, and wobaUj the one meniioDed in his will. 
lliis is Moved by a deed recorded in Middlesex H^iistrj of Deeds, vol. 3, p. 3, wherein 
Sdmnna Qreenleaf, of Boston, connn' of Snfiblk, dyer, gives to " his son, &K>di 
Gicenlea^ of Maiden, coontj of Hkldlcacx," a flinn of 46 acree, with a new house, 
cattle, fte., tc, tbeieon, " to the said Enoch and his wife Mary, and tbe lawful dtildren 
of tfatsr bodiea forever,"— July, 1663. 

In ISSa, Middlesex Begtstrj, vol. B, p. 499, said Enodi, (wbo theie styles himself a 
drer of Boston,) and wile, " and their children " — viz. : EmeeA Jr., Joe^ih, Rnth, and 
BotAsbT — mottgage tbe said premises, " which was given to titem by Aeir Cuher Ed- 
Biu>d. The bets tbu Enoch, senior, came to this conntij, and that lie was ralued to 
Sdmnnd, wen wholly nnknown to tbe Rev. author. [Note 95, p. 109.] 

It is probable thM a tbocongh investigation will prove that Robert Greenleaf, the 
"cabin Sot," who aettled near New York "about 1760," was also a descendant of old 
Edrnmod uie dyer. 

In Johnson's ffisloiy of New Ei^land, page 19a, old Edmund is mentioned as " an 
sadent and experieiieed lieutenant" nnder Capt. Gtnish, in 1644. In Fanner's 
" GenodoKieal Register of the first settlers of New England," Stephen, tbe scm (tf said 
Edmund, IS mentioned as a resident of Newbuiy, where he was admitted a freeman in 
1677, and elected repreKntative in 1676 and 1686. In Thomas' ffistory ot Ptintins, 
Joacph Gireenleaf, the father of Thomas Greenleaf, the printer, who died in New ¥o^ 
In 1798, is mentioned as being "of Abington," not Halden, as in diis book.

A Si«act.ut RxLic— We were shown, cm SatarduT, bj Ool. Ogle, of this coontr- 
• small copper tobaeovbox, about two by six inches, llie bistoey of ttus box is inter- 
csCng. When~ William Fenn first began the settlement oS Philadelphia, be gave it to 
an Indian chief, as a raesent. Tbe Imz tlien was perfectly plain. Long aftawards it 
waa procured from Uw Indians by a wtiiie man, and then it was diacoveied to be mdely 
carved all over. One part of it represents Peun treating vriih the Lidlans, and tbe flg- 
mtt of Indians are scattered in many places. 'Die carving liaa evidendy been done 
wilk a ^ara stone the cnts seem to be scratched oat. It is a Uvins iUastntian of the

BIB P«EPft»ATIO?( FOB THE tTKIVBBSITy. 

Ai ihc cclcbratcil Wcxinioslcr School, h« rcccired ihe training pre]>iuii- 
loiy to hia cutraAco into tlie ITnivenity. li urns hero that his love of 
knowledge was devclop<><t, anil hi* lnv« oT rig}il «|raag1h<-iipd. It wa» 
h«rc that oo the fiAh of Nuvi-mbcr. 1605, hp, with die other ittcmben of 
the twixxil, cuinc nirar futling a victim lo the Tanious '• Gunpowder Plot,** 
dcviacd by the infamous <juy FawJtcii. The cdilicc, where tlie school was 
Itppl, was in cIoho proximity lu tho parliotncnt-hotue. And if the diaboK 
icnl dcaign of Fawkcs and his fcl!aw>con»j)inilor( had succeeded, the 
parliumcnt nud ibe ttcliuot would Invu been involved in one comnioa bie. 
Upon a i^flectire tniod like his, this «vr<nt could hardly fail to pivduce 
A deep and tasting impresBion, awakening not only gntltiuile for hts deliv- 
erance, bul nl.to abhorrence of that Kpiril whieb contrived ihc plot. And 
wo caa easily believe, that naaeciaiioiu, eonoeclcd with ihia event m bis 
youthful mind, must have cootribuled to give a certain shape to bis opin- 
ions, and a ccnain tone to bin feelings, for which he was distioguUbed . 
We cun cosily believe that the scntitncnta thiis gcnemtnd were, with his 
ardeat tcmpcrameDt, transmitted to his inamedlatc descendants, to be 
nourished and slrengthent^d by every anntial eommuinoralion of tlie fiAh 
of November, by every remembrance of ihe fires of Smithlietd, and by 
every munifeslaliun of ecclesiastical domination in the current crenis of 
Ibe tin>es. The following quotation from Dr. Charles Chauocy ofBoaioo, 
his disunguished descendant of the fourth genemttnn, shows liis own pious 
a|>pFeciat)on of this event. **I paniciiltirty nientioa this feet, because it 
is omplialically an important one as rclalire to myself, and strongly punts 
out the special obligation I am under, to set nn astensni on the fifth of 
November, which, to this day. is commemontted in llie colonies, as well 
as in the ntothcr country, as [ hope always will be, with joy and graiitude. 
>Iy czistcDcc, witli all its conncciions in this world on<l nnothcr, which 
were then only possible futurities, were absolutely depeiidenl on this 
deliverance by an cilmordinury intciponiioa ef God's all-governing 
providonoo." 

BIS COMNECXIOM WITH THS ITNirBRarrT. 

Having completed his preparatory studies, he entered the Untversi^ as 
a student of Trinity College, Cambridge, where he pnxccded Bachelor in 
16)3, and Master of Arts in 1617. Here be prosecuted his studies witli 
so much diligence thai he became a Fellow of llie College, and was 
honored, 1634, with the degree of Haehoior of Divinity. 

In con«ei|VJcnce qf his dislinguished attainments in Oriental literature, 
be was chosen by the Heads of the Ilouaca, Profosaor of Hebrew. Dot

In A. D. 1627, 3 of Cbarit^a I., he became vicar of Ware in his natiTS

This book, drawn up by Bishop Moreton, Rnd dated from Grecnvich, 
wy 24, 1616, in the 15 of JairtM 1., ui » this etTcoi : " That Tor \\m 
people's r«CT«fttiun, his Majest/'s plo&flura was, that af^er the «nd of 
dinoc service, they should not be distiuted, Idled or diacouragod rron 
bay lawful tecreaUoiis ; euvli aa dancing, uitbcr inen or woroea, archery 
for men, leaping or vaulting, or any such hnrmlcm rtHin'-nttons, nor of 
vi'm^ llHy-gunes, Whiuonales, or Morisccdances, or selling up of )laj- 
Tfolca, or other ^orts therewith used, so ttial tha name may bo had in 
dtie convenient time, wilhout impediment or let of di vino itervice; and 
L that women slioold have leave to carry ruslius to llie church for <!«.*• >mtirij; 
: according to their old custom; wilhal prohibiiing u)1 unlawful games 
|]o be uwed on Sunday's only ; as bear^baiung, butl-battiog. inleiludes, and 
. all times bowling."* 

Tbe reaaon asaign^ Tor this imprudent measure was ihal the Turilan 
preaclren) eodearorcd to raise tbc Sabbaih, and to depress the AattTals ; 
and heace iIm popish priests took occaiwii to create the impression 
that the reformed religion was incompatible witli thai (rhrisliaii liberty 
Ood and nature had indulged to tbe sons of men; so that lo pre* 
rWnre tbe people from l^lpacy his Majesty was brought under a necessity 
10 publish tlic Book of Sports. 

To this Mr. Qiauney was etrao^y opposed, and as preaching in tbe 
'iAemoon of Sunday was prohibited by staiuie, he would in tlmt part of 
Ibc day, '* catechise as many as he could, both young ai>d old." A cate- 
chism composed by tiim, which he probably employed for ih« iiwiroctioa 
of Ilia people, I have lately procured in the S^gonian Library. ThiladeU 
jphta. It is entitled, *■ Tbe Doctrine of the Sacnuncnt, with the rig)>l tise 
Acroof, catechetically handled by way of question and answer, by Mr. 
' Charles Chauney, somctimr ^^Inlsler at Ware." The emblem on the 
tale page is on anchor wreathed wilh flowers. The motto is Anchora spci, 
primed by G. X. for Thomas Undcrhill, at ihe sign of the BiMe, in Wood 
itteel, 1642. The Bishop was not saltsticd with this suhttilui>on, and 
■aid, '* that ealt<hinng tea» as bad at jireaching." 

Moai of tlie Puritan ilivitM-s w«.-rp now ireated with the utmoM cruelty. 
Buhop l^ud was determined to bring them to an exact conformity, or 
Hop tltcir m<niths, or cost tlicm into prison, or drive them out of tbe land. 
He Chauncy did not escape the vengeance of this ^rannical prelate, 
lo January, 1629, he was questioned tn the high committsion' court for 
baring vaed the following expression in bis sermon : " That idolatry wu 
■d(nitte<j into the chureh: that itot only tbe prophets of Baal, but Baal 
lanasirwas received, and houses mulliplied for their entertainment; and 
Aat the preaching of the gosfwl would be suppressed. That there wanted 
men of courage lo rcmirtd ihcir supcrioRi of their neglect, and that thero 
Wis a peat iikcroase of atbctsm, heresy, popery and armioioniam in the 
chamh." 
To the charge (bunilcd upon these expressioiu, Mr. Chauncy gave liia

ing. Tlic WJii day, lh« cuusc, by order of the cotm, wm refcnx-tl lo the 
d«ciaron of Bisliop Laud. This was on oondjtion, that if Mr. Chnuncy 
did not auhtiiil lo ol)scrvc wlint ihc Btshi>|> ahtitild n{>j>aint, hi« Limlxhip 
mighl, if be p1f<tuH-<l, riif«r him back to be ciinurcd in Ihc lii^h conuni*- 
flion. But he i» said to hivvA mudo his submiuion to the Btsliop. 

Thii, Imwfiver, was nol tlic end uf his iniublM, for in 1635, be vnm 
nguin pniseciilL-d in thv liigli commission for oppomng tbc rniling in of the 
communion mblc at Wore : vrtivn he woi iuspcjidcil, cnsi inio prisaa, coin 
dema«d to costs, and obliged to mako a humiliatinfi reeanlation. * f 

Tliit submission is «atd to have bt^r-ii furucd from Mr. Chauncy, uod 
dfesi^cd only to dotcr others from opposing the Archbishop's iniKivations. 
AAcr he liad mado tliis dtsgraceful n>caiitaUon in the open court, tho 
Archbishop judicially admonished him " to cany liimBelf peaceably and 
conformably to ihi^ tloctrimrs, tito dhsciplinCt and rites and ceremoiiios of 
tho ('hurcit of P'.nglanil ; and that in ease he should be brought bcrom 
then) again for any similar oB^ncc, the court intcndcij to proceed against 
him witli all severity ; and so dismissed htm." X 

Though .Mr. Chauncy was overcome in ihc Hour of temptation, and 
enforced, by lbn (errors and censums of his cruel «ppr«BOT3, to make 
the above rccaatntion, he aflerwords felt ihc bitterness of it, and deeply 
bewailed bis sinful complinnco. Though he obtained forgiveneas of Ood, 
he nf^ver forgave himiwlf as long as lie lived, Ho often expressed a tioly 
indignation n^inst himself, as well ns the supcrslilioua innovatioaa in 
the church. He was a most exemplary- man, and lived n most holy life { 
ypt nl the lime of liia death he made the following humiliating declaration 
in Iiix Initi wilt ami toslnnient: " I do acknowledge mywlf to he a child 
of wmth, and sold under sin, and one wlio hath been polluti^d with innn- 
merabte trflnsgresdiotts and migfity sins ; which, as far as 1 koov and 
call to remembntnce, I keep still fn-sh befun- mo, and ilMire with mourn- 
ing and self abhorrence still lo do, as long as life shall Insi; and e9pe< 
ciatly my so many sinful compliances with and conformity unio vile 
humnn inventions, and will-worship and hcll-brcd stip«rctitions, and other 
evil things apniched to the sen,'iee of God, wiih which the En<;lish maas* 
book, I mean the book of Common Prayer, in so fully fraught." § 

H« appears to have preached for u acoson is Marston- Lawrence before 
he was settled at Ware.

roots of biitlerneM in the beftrU of the people. At hie sottlomODt another 
church frns fofined under the l«ail of William Vaml, a man of decided 
ability. With him Mr. Chauncy soon (bund hinncir engaged in a coo> 
tfuvcrsy on the subject of the aeaU, porticuUrly on the mode of baptisin. 
*r\\'a conlroventy rnunt bavo been a source of great diaquictude to him. 

Tlicre are many evidences on ivcord that Mr. Chauocjr waa unhappy 
at Sciiuaio. " The ctrcuinalances by which ho waa sDrroiuMled, togciber 
with his ardent [enipvraincnt. make on apolog)', in port, for hU uiteam* 
peB9. He vjsa a studiuus man beyond wliat is often known, and wac 
subject to tlic nervouB sensibility peculiar to hard Btudenta. He was con* 
sciuusly endowed wilh grcnl tnlents and teaming. He was devoted to hit < 
pror«»ioo, and he wtw too apt to accept it aa an indignity that his power* 
Bliuuld uol keep down all oppoaitjoii, and hts hibors bring bira al lea»t the 
conirom of life in Icntpoml Ihinga." — Dcanr''3 Histortf of Scilaatc. 

In \GM} Mr. Chau^cy made known the jKiveriy of liia cireumstancesa t»1 
tlio Go^-cnwr and Aiaistania, though we do not find any grant wu mado 
H ith reference to this application. The following ia a li§t of hi* proper^, . 
cxlnictcd from the colony records:— 

1. The houKc Mr. Hatherlv bought of Mr. Vassal, with the eularge- 
ments. A new building antT bam and oO»er out-housos. 'i. All lbs I 
{{rxMiid about it being six acres. 3. An eiKlosed stony 6eld near the . 
mareh. 4. .^n orchard behind ihc house. &. The barn cio«e,compri»ingi 
the bam. 6. Twenty acres of uplojid, ton of it encloaod, called the nDw] 
field. 7. TwcItc ocros of Cohiwet marsh. 8. Twenty acroa of land i 
on Hooppole Ealond, with undivided land amoag the Cohassct purchiuera. 

Chakles CuiiTKCv, 1049. 

■■ In 1654, Mr. Hatherly, the untiring patron of the plantation, oScradj 
to moke a deed of gift to Mr. Chauncy of a houae and land ou Stotuit 
brook, on condition that he would spend his life in Hciluatc, which he 
dccUnod. Mr. Hailicrly then m&da a deed to the church, and submtiai 
the farm to their di«p<wfil. The same year the church conveys it to Mr.J 
Chauncy by deed of gift. 

"Tbouf^ litis was given without any condition Co be performed on Mr.l 
Clinuncy^s pnrt, at least speetfictl in the deed, yet on hi^ retiring at Ihei 
clu«c of the same year, the larm accms to have been relinquished io thai 
cliurch." 

Besides (verforming hia ministerial labors, he practiited, io a consider- 
able oxteni, as n physician, for which, Mntlicr iafonm us, he wn» emi. 
nentty qualified; and moreover was engaged in instructing his own sons, 
and preparing young men fur the ministry. We state for a certainty th 
the celebrated Mr. Thomas Thucher, wlro came out from Knghitid be- 
fore his iboological educnlion htid been completed, was under the cnre of 
Mr. Chauncy at Sciluslc. He was the ancestor of the eminent ministers 
of that name. 

While in Plymouth, or io Scituale, it does not appear that he published 
any of his writings. The following letter, wrillen by him. is prefixed to 
Uic Kcond edition of LeighU Critica Sacra, cd. Lond., 1&46 ; —

HIS DRPAKTVRE FROX SaTUATC. 
At length Mr. Cliauncy made up his miiul not lo rcmAtn in Scitunln. 
^c had cDcountcrcd great (rials during his midcncu ibcrc. lie hud 
round a controversy raging Prom which his prodeccasor wa» glud to 
escape with a considenbte pert of hit) church, tie saw upon his settle* 
nierU a new church formed upon foniK^r icsunt, Init ulto rrom (ItssatiKTac- 
lion with his doclrine». He faood himself obliged to bike a leading part 
in the controversy that followrd. MU admiring friends there were indeed 
kithful to him, oik), for the lime^, generous, but \vi liTcd in acloal want 
ren of some of the necessaries of life. Dr. Charles Chauncy, of Buttrm, 
^ntarks, that he had mun; tlum ouce heard, the Rev. Mr. Ncticmiab 
Walter, of Roxbury, say, that he bad seen ■ letter of his, wherein was 
his complaint to his friend«, that his Decesailies wer« so great^ that be 
might with troth declare, "deesj qnidanptmU^ inilccd I luivu out ba-od 
to eat 

Thus ntuntcd, he could hardly fail to contrnxt the privations hn suf- 
fere<i, wiih tlie abundance be once enjoyed ; a new country and its 
piiiraikins, with an old country and its improveoients ; Puritan New F.ng* 
land with merry old England. Wc can believe that the santc spirit of 
iBncnt with which he sj'mpalhized while opposed to tltc jKiwera that be 
in England, would be somewhat disgusting lo him in America. Hts heart 
tnust lioTc ycame<l for his mother country. Times had changed there. 
Laud had given hi* head to Ihe block to expiate his crimes and his un- 
popularity. Hie old people in Wnre had sent him an invitation to r«iura 
and be their minisier. Accordingly he came to Boston to make amnge* 
Bents to remove hia family lo England.

But while be woa in Boston in order lo take poasogc, the Overseers of 
Harvard College, not willing that Ihe country should snlTcr the low of so

JoBJi Stowe, Ibie fainoiu chronicler <>f il"n king^ of Kngland, and »nr- 
vnyor of iho city of London, a ptiiniitnkinK and vnhiminmn writ«-r, was 
the oldc«l soa of Thoraos and Margaret. He belonged lo ihc bon'>mhle

life apent in hnrd labor, be died in Ihn depths of penury, Ipoviiig little 
behiad him except piles of MSS., lo which posterity has paid all de<ir«- 
We bonor. 

Hit fintt trouble was, that in the reign of \\\e capricious tyrant TIenry 
VIII., hr was acciiKMl by n priest of dwiifTi-ction to tlic gfrvcmmeni, nnd 
nn inclination to Lulbenmism, and brounbl tu Inal. He. however, dc-

A flliort timo after this bB took a twiiiw in Lesdenhall xirrRi, near its

From a long list of baptisms, marriages and burials, dating from 1540

Blade Ltad Mine at Sturbridiie. 



[April, 



BLACK LEAD MINE AT STURBRIDGE. 

TbIS was 6nrt discovered bv the Indiana, who used the lend to p>u)l 
their faces. When John Oldham caiw to Connecticut river in 1633, he 
cnrriod back, m Winthrop informs u«, "sumfl UbpIc lend, whereof the In- 
diiiiM lull] him then.- wn» a wliolc ruck." la 1644, ihc UcnenI Courl 
granted to Julio Winthrop, Jr. " lliu liill at Tantuusq, nbout 60 miles west- 
wai-d ofBoeloii, in which ihc blaclt lead is,'' and ^vc him liberty to pur- 
ekuo flome land there of the Indians. The \Vintl)ropa BubscqiK-ntlr pos- 
■essod at Taniouitq four mtlcs Mitean*. John Chiiniilrr, Jr., a surveyor, 
measured ilie Uiid in 172^. He called thu place '-Tiinieusriiic, or tin- 
Black I^ad Mincfl." When Sliirbridgc wns incorpoiated in 1*38, the 
four milca square were a part of it. 

Near two hundred years ngo. nomc cnterpriiiing men in Boston pxpend- 
ed a large •mm .it iliitt mine. I find in an iiccouni Iwok of John Pyiichoo, 
of SpriMpfivld, tliat Mr. William Puync and Capt. Thomas Chirke, of Bo»- 
loni employed men to work nt the black lead mine, in 1657, 165H, and 
1659, nnd pertapa some years Uilor; and that .Mr. PyDchon procurr-d pro- 
visions for ihem, and paid the workmen a considcrsblo amount froin hit 
Bhoj) of guods. Mr. Winthrop is noticed two or three times &s ffiving 
ordcni, but all ihc charges arc made nguinsl 1^lyIle and Clarke, and ibcy 
paid ]*ynchon'a bills, in goods, at Boston. The numc of the principal 
workman, or ovcnccr, was William Deias. Pork, bacoftt pciw, bread, 
flour, Indian ineni, cUt'Csi', Ax., wore conveyed from 8pringftctd to the 
mine nn hoRteback. PynchonV agvncy ceased in 16A9, but the work 
may h»vc been carried on some yeurj longer, or until 1C63. In (^)clober 
und Niivemlter of thai year, two yokes of oxen, two cowi^,n marc and coit, 
and a sow, alt liolonging lu Cap). Tbonios Clarke, were brought to 8pring- 
fiejd, wbrr* «ome were sold and others wintered. If they came from the 
block lead mine, it may be inferred ihiit iberc was o house and bom, and 
some land cleared and cultivated, al Tanlousquc. Cupl. Clarke wa» en- 
gaged in oiher enterprises, and these animals may hnvo been driven 
from another place. But ihcrc muit have been a liouao of eotnc kind 
at the mine. 

In 1658 Pynchon purchased in Sprinafield 26 barrel* for Mack lesad, 
and Pnyne and Clarke paid for ihem. It is probable that these Ijarrel*, 
and tiiuny more, wen; filled with black lend at Sprinelirld ; and that it 
was aiini tu Boston, and ibencu to Biiglnnd. Bu: I Know not Iww it 
wna dixiMwicd tif. 

In July, 1675, Ephraim Curtis, who was sent by tbo Covcroor and 
Council, lo Bcc what ibc Nipmuck Indians were dolni;, cnmc, Iw saySi 
'♦to the lead mine by Springfield old road, where he saw new footinf 
of Inilians.'* 'I'hi* seems lo be the road from Springfield to the mine. 
In the recorda of Windsor, '^u path near the muuiiluiii^ leading to tliv 
Icod miue>i," east of E^ist Windsor, is nuticed in the ITih century. 

Tiie noim of industrious luborers was heard in the fon-vis of Slur- 
bridge, before while men hud taken posscasion of NorM-ich nnd Brook- 
Jield. S. J. of Northampton.

There are iwme errors in the explanation of ll»c monihjt. Tf the 9ili1

Indiana, na to the division of time, were somewhat vngne and indefinite^ 
In Long's " Kipfdition to the Source of Si. Peter's Ri»er," the names 
titc Chippewa months or moons are given ; but the writer doubts their ac- 
curBcy.and .■«)■», " it nt&y bo queMionetl wlielher thcChippevaa have nr

Our Indians on Conneotjcut river, above Windiwr, were Nipmueks;.! 
The mund of tbo letter / is fr^nenl in their language, thwigh not usodj

when Iter eltJest son, having aluincil th« ago of mnnhoodi went aonw 
jeare Bderwird to the Island of St. DonRingo, where he esiaMMbed hiai* 
wlf, he sailed from Boetoo in a ahip, the Bcflvcr,of which his mother wia 
puft owQer, aoJ which hud been chartered tv tliu French govcrumeut to 
imiispon pun of their caviilry lu Ciipc Pmnjoia. 

This entiimhle Inily discharged hvr duties Miooenfidl;, rearing ter 
children villi such advimtagcs a« fitted them for atalions or ro«pon«hiHt]r, 
which thc.y ahcrward fitted with credit to tbennclvea and lo her ; and ai 
tho saine liroe taking an active part herself wiih tlie charitable awncialions 
of the town, which i« *hown by acknowledgments (bond amun^ her pa< 
pcra, and in rccufds of her wrviccs as treasurer and otherwise, from those 
with whom she acted. 

On her decease in 1807, it was voted ■' that the officers of the Bosioo 
Femule Asylum wear a htidgc of inouraing for the lemi of sevcnty-ooe 
days," (corresponding probably to the yvant of her lifri) ** in token of 
tlieir high coosideratioo and respect fur the virlties of tliu deceased, and 
of their grateful and Bflbcttanale sense of her liberal and essential patron- 
Bgo as a founder and friend of the institution." She is still reniembored 
by a few gcmlcmcn, sckm of her former Dcighbors and anuciaies, as an 
excellent friend, of active bcaeTolciwe, and aa a lady of digHfied, but 
frank and cordial manners. 

Numcroas dcwendanis* of bcra, under viuious namca, now move in 
dilTerent walks of life in the United States, in Europe, and Asia, and not 
a few of them distinguished for prosperity and the win; use of wealth, and 
for iDlelligvnce and relinenivDt, as well as for the sound principles which 
she inculcated on all. 

The success of soreral of tho branches of ber family was eawntiallj 
promoted by the energy and warm-hcnrled sympathy of Ibe autgoct « 
this memoir, who was the second son, onty six yean of age at the dcatb 
of his rmhcr, in 1771. 

Hi* father lived in King-stroct, now State-street, where the conflict look 
place between Oio ciliicenK and the troop*, cilled a(^<! rwiirtLi ttie " Boston 
maancre;" aiMi though he wm little more than five yeant old nt that 
time, the sight of the dead bodi<» nnd of the blood, frozen tlie next day 
on tho street, mode an iroprcsaioa on bis mind that was never obliterated. 
The troops being quartered near there, many of iho officers were oAerw 
wards visitors in his mother's family. 

At about seven years of age he was put under the care of a clergyman 
of great respectability at Middlcborougli, ubout tliirty miles from Boston, 
and was aderwurds at School in Bosion, until intercourse with the country 
being stopped, his mother retired with her family to Rvmsisble, where 
aho resided ^11 the town was ovacualud by tito etiemy. Hia gnuidfalber, 
Mr. Peck, remained in Boston through the siege, but was near being sent 
bomc to be tried as a rebel for freedom of speech. 

Whil« living with his mother at Bamstablc, both his togs were broken 
by an unlucky accident, aa he was returning from an excuruon in the

iMe of them, he oeeaaiooalljr felt the effect of the injury when the weather 
wu Imu), ctcd in sdvanced age. There, too, be fbrined an early and cloae 
fneodship, that remained unbroken for nearly eighty jreara, umil termi- 
nated by deaU), widi one of his companions whom he had saved from 
drowning — the late distinguished lawyer and statesman, Harriscu) Gray 
OtiSi nephew of the revolutionary patriot 

Some time after the return of the family to town, his mother decided on 
nviBg him a collegiate education, and he was sent, with other boys from 
Boston — one of whom was the Hon. John Wells, now the oldest living 
graduate of Harvard — to an instructor at Hingham, the Rev. Mr. Shute, 
noted for his suceeas in preparing lads for college. After reading therv 
three years, and being prepared for Cambridge, he was so reluctant to 
CDler college, tfiat it was decided that be should go into a counting-house. 
He was strongly inclined by temperament (o active life. Vigorous and 
bold, with a frame peculiarly fitted for endurance, which was afterwardi 
developed in 6oe proportions for strength end beauty in manhood, he saw 
kaa to attract him in the life of a student than in one of enterprise, when 
he might indulge a love of adventure and exercise the courage, equal to 
•Imoal every emergency, which characterized him. He waa placed with 
the Messrs. Shattudr, then among the most active merehaniB of Boston, 
with whom be remained until he was twenty-one. 

On leaving the Messra. Shattnek in 1765, not being well, he was ad- 
'viaed to pass the winter in a warm climate, and visited his elder brother, 
Mr. James Perkins, in 3t Domingo. 

Ha somi afterward accepted an invitation to join his brother in St. Df^ 
nunm, and they formed a bouse there which was very successful ; hot 
finding tiiat the climate did not agree with his health, be returned to Bos- 
Ion, and for some time attended to the business of the house in the United 
States, where their correspondence was extensive, bis younger brother, 
the late Samuel O. Perkins, Esq., filling bis place in the firm. 

In 1788 he was married to Hiss Elliot, only daughter of Simon Elliot, 
Eiaq. h was a imion entirely of affection, and lasted for more than sixty 
years. His married life was commenced with necessity for strict econo- 
my ; but Uie connection probably gave an important bias to his commercial

PeiUns, who had made one voyage to Canton. He soon turned his atten- 
lioD to trade with China, and sailed from Boston in February, 1789, as 
•opereargo of the ship Astnea, belonging lo E. H. Derby, Esq., of Salem, 
hound to Batavia and Canton, and commanded by Capt. Magce. 

He proceeded to Canton for a cargo of teas. While he was dtere, a 
Tcwel arrived whose mme has since become one of historical interest — 
the Columbia — the ship which in her next vovage, under the eominand of 
Oipt. Grey, crossed the bar of the Columbia River, as it was always called 
afterward, the incident being referred to in recent negotiations of intense 
int e r es t as die foundation of a territorial claim on the part of the United 
Slate*. 

Retonung homeward, he found that the period of his absence hod been 
eve n tfiil in changes that were to have important influence in the pcJitical 
and eiMiunefcial world. Hiey received news of the revolutionary move-

conliniH'ii their establiiihravnt, duing a proaperuiix bu»unest up to that pe- 
riod. Mr. JuincA Perkins, the eldest brotlicr, and hie wife were in a pcril- 
OOS Mluaiion ui the beginning of il, being in tlic interior on a visit to a 
friend who liad a planlation, next lo the one first destroyed, on the plnuM 
of th« cope- They made their c«capc, however, from the frightful trefit> 
nkcnl which wailed all who liagercd, nnd reached the cape. The brothera 
(James and Samuel G.) retunaed to Boston, having tost most of tboir 
property, to begin the world anew. He then formed a co-partnerahip 
with his brother Jumvs, under the firm of J. & T. II. Ferkine, which con- 
tinued until the death of tlic latter in 16*23. though ihc uameof tlie ftno 
was altered on the admission of their sons in lHt9. They mcd tb« in- 
formation which had been ac<)uirod at St. Domingo with advantage, by 
keeping two or three vessels trading lo ibe West Indies, and ahippiog 
oofl^ and aiigar lo Europe. 

But their most importont bunincss was the inidc of their nhip* on the 
northwest Goasl and in China. They were cotKcmed in oumcrotis voy- 
ages in tltut direction, nnd eveulunlly esiubti&heil a huuse at Canton, under 
the firm of Perkinsi .V Co., wtuch bucame one of grcol unporlancc oiid 
eminently successful. 

In December, 17^. he look pssaagc for Bordeaux in « sliip bdonging 
to hht own bouse and thai of Messrs. S. HigginsCHi 6l Co., — in which firm 
his brotlier, Mr. S. (>. Perkins, had become a partner — with a cargo of 
provisions ; llio durannd for tlicm in the disturbed aUUc of French aflbirH 
oJleringtho prospect of a fair result to such n voyage. 

About this lime he was made commander of a military corps, the bal- 
talion which oonstilules llie guard and esooit for public occavioos of the 
Governor in the Cummutiweidlh of HassachusetM, with the rank of lieu- 
icn&nt-coloncl, having fur somu lime previously held ibul of major ia tbo 
ame corps. 

Soon alWnrvards he was chosen President of the BosioQ biaitch of tho 
United States Bsuk— quite a distinction ai that time, wlien there were few 
hunk* ill ilic country, and a remarkable one for a man so young as be 
was llicn. The choice wan owing to a warm rivalrj- for the honor bctwccu 
two distinguished merchants, much older than himself, whose friends ni ,

generally of the Senate, nnlefls absent from the country. Being a man 
of few words, he rarely took part in debate ; but his opinions were marked 
by decision, what he said was to the point, his language was good, and 
when he was strongly moved he spoke with power. One of his colleague's 
in the Senate, jjho a^erwards had long experience in Congress, and was 
fhrorably distinguished there as well as at the bar, has remarked since, 
tbat be had rarely heard public men make a short, off-hand speech with 
more effect than Col. Perkins occasionally did when his feelings were 
deeply engaged in the subject of debate. 

He took an active and very important part in measures for establishing 
the Massachusetts General Hospital with an Asylum for the Insane, the 
neeeasity for which had begun to be deeply felt. He was one of those to 
whom an act of incorporation had been granted for the purpose, with a 
valuable donation from the Commonwealth, on the condition that the sum 
of one hundred thousand dollara should be raised by subscription within a 
limited time. His name was at the head of the first list of trustees, and 
he undertook the work which his position involved with characteristie 
enei^. His inftuence and his services were highly appreciated by those 
with whom he was engaged in that undertaking. The subscriptions were 
made on the condition that the full sum of 9100,000 should be obtained, 
•o dkat the whole depended on entire success. Besides his exertions in 
imwng other subscribers, he and his elder brother contributed fire thou- 
Mind dollars each toward the fund, and it was completed agreeably to the 
terms of condition. It is well known that the efforts of those who were 
engaged in this movement have been, prodoctive of all the good which 
they hoped to effect 

His elder brother and partner, James Perkins, Esq., died in the year 
18S3. The following passages from a notice of his death, published at 
tiie time, show the estimation in which he was held : — 

" While his real and most eloquent eul<^y is to he sought in the eoune 
ot an industrious, honorable, and most useful life, it is due to the virtues 
be practised, to the example he set, to the noble standard of character on 
which he acted, not to be entirely silent, now that nothing remains of them 
bat their honored memory. He had received in boyhood, under the care 
of an excellent mother, the preparatory instruction which miriit have fitted 
him for an academical education ; but the approach of the Kevolutionaiy 
War, and the discouraging aspect of die times, dictated the commercial 
career as more prudent 

" In enterprises extending over the habitable globe, employing thousands 
of agents, constantly involving fortunes in their result, and requiring, on 
many occasions necessarily incident to business of this extent, noaeconda- 
ry d^ree of firmness and courage, not a shadow of suspicion of anything 
denwatory to the highest and purest sense of honor and conscience ever 
attnened to his conduct The character of such a man ought to be held 
op for imitation." 

Mr. James Perkins left a large fortone, acquired in this honorable eoune ; 
and is still remembered for distinguished liberality in all appeals that were 
made when he lived, for charity or public good, to the affluent and gener- 
ons in the community ; for his liberal donations to several institulions ; 
and especially for a munificent gift of real estate, of the value of abottt 
$S0,000, to the Boston Athenteum, and ihe beqnest of 920,000 more to

In IS38 his coramorcial firm was tlinolved, and he withdrew frvm ba>

while lie had great conndcncc in hia own ability to direct, he uell Voew 
the importance of leaving as liule ai pooaiU* to acctdeui in any enlerprise 
that be undertook. 

After hia rftircmcnt from commerce, Co). Perkins found suSicieot 
occupation in the managcmcnl of his property ; io various mailers of a 
public nature which interested him; and in the culiivntion of trees, end 
particularly of fniits and Howcnt, on bis vvtalc at Brovkliitc. Ho was re> 
markablc for his love of nature ; and in travelling sometimes went iar out 
of his way Io «zamino a beautiful tree, or to enjoy an tnieri-siiug view. 
OocasioAally he made a voyage to Europe, renewing his obMrrvstiona on 
the changes and impn*renM:uts thai were to be seen there. He badcroased 
the Ailnnlic nmny Ixiiit-s bfitide ilie iiiHtnnces that have been referred to, 
always keeping a diorj', which he filled with the incidents that occurred, 
with the results of his inquiries, and with remarks worthy of an intclligenl 
IiBvelter ; and Hending home works of art, some of which were bcstowiid 
as giOs. He took a lively inlnrest in ihe progreaa and welfare of Americaa 
artists, kitidly aiding totoo who desired to improve by studying the great 
models in Europe| and liberally purchasing the works of tlrasc who de- 
served encoumgemcnt. He was generally very agreeable to iboae with 
whom he incidentally fell in as fi!:1low>imv&llors; and where ha beoama 
known abroud us an American, be left a very lavofuhlc impreosioo of tho 
cbarscler of his cuuntrymvn. 

Numerous iitelanoes mivht bo given of his kindness in promoting th« 
Mcceaa of others, and particularly of yuuug ■t>eti cii|^igiiig in voyages or 
other commnrcini etMerprisea; and lie alwayn sliowcd a warm inieresl in 
the Mereunlilo Library Asaocioiioii of Yuitiig Men in Boston, to whom be 
made a donation Io aid io the erection of a building. 

In a general view of his character, bn appeared as cicreising the influ- 
SQce of one tuiving n nicesenseof jironriely, with reference to tlie opinioo 
of others ; love of order ; a high slamlard of action ; and & desire to pro- 
nkotc whatever tcodcd to general udvantsfie and respectability : with such 
sicadinesi of purpose as gave power lo his example His mannen. formed 
ID an age of ceremony which has passed, retained something of its cour- 
teous dignity, divesled of what was artificial, and united with the ease of 
uur own tinit.*. 

His pereonal appearance so far indicated his character thai an oiiaenrer 
of any elass^ who saw him for the fint lime, was very likely to be iin< 
pressed with a deaire to know who that personage might be. '*A very 
noble looliing man," said a young woman who was called to fetch him a 
glam uf water, wh^^n he Hlop[ieii one day al the house of a friend soma 
■Biles Trom town- "Ci> ifau vUillard/'" — that beautiful old man! — ex- 
claimed iho wife of a ioreign ambassador, in speaking of his reecptiun of 
her al his country-seat, when some one was sttowiog her the environs of 
Boston. And in repeated instances foreigners of raidt have remarked in 
a similar tone on his perxui and the liigh-brcd courtesy of bis manoer.

Though bnd of social intercourae, his opinioM were ofteo conveyed in 
monoHyllBbtes or short sad terae expressions, and he was more ioclioed, 
whether abroad or at bis owa table, to promote coorersation in others than 
to talk much himself. But he listened with attention and contributed 
leadily, from the stores of his experieiwe and knowledge, whatever oc- 
curred to him as interesting; occasionally introducing an anecdote with 
striking effect, but rather as if be were stating a fact than telling a story. 
He used language with precision ; hia expressions were concise ; and lus 
words carried the (ult force that belongea to them, all the more because 
there was no attempt to exa^erate their true and precise meaning. The 
instances that he gave were usually such as had occurred within hia own 
knowledge in reference to remarkable events or distinguished men, and 
most of ibem might well have found place in history or bi<^raphy. 

h is not uncommon with those whose feelings are characterized bj 
great energy, as hia were, that from an apprehension, perhaps, lest strong 
vnMtion might escape control if expressed in any degree whatever, it is 
guarded with such entire suppression and reserve that they seem to tfion 
wound them almost to have no feeling at all, when, in truth, they feel 
inost deeply. A striking instance of this nature may be mentioned of 

The death of his eldest son, who was named for him, and in peraon, as 
well as in aome points of character, bore a atrcHig natural resemblance to 
himself, occurred about four years before bis own. They differed in 
eharscter as the son of a widow, moved by strong incitements to assist in 
telieruig ber of care, and to secure his own advancement in the world, 
mi^t be very likely to differ from one bom to the enjoyment and expee- 
tatxm of wealA, and advancing in youth under the auspices of a parent 
who stood high in public estimatiim and possessed powerful influeoee. 
Like his father, he bad preferred aeiioa to the life of a student, and went 
eaily abroad, having sailed for China during die war <^ 1812, in a private 
anned ship that was prepared to fight ber way for a rich cai^, as was 
•Qccessfolly done ; and be took part in one bloody naval action beside 
other encounters. Daring in apirit, of a buoyant and generous temper, 
aad eminently handsome, be was a favorite abroad, puthnilariy among 
Ibe officers of our paUic ships as he met them in foreign ports ; and he 
bad seen much of the world, with various adventures in China, in South 
America, and in Europe. 

He eventually joined his father's commercial house in Boston, and after 
a few years <ii remarkable success, withdrew with a good fortune, and 
bved in affluence and leisure, amusing himself with field sports, of which 
be was fond, and varying his life with an occasional tour in Europe. 
AiWr tearing a beautiful family, be felt die victim of a distressing illness, 
and died in the prime of life. 

At his funeral, his father appeared tranquil as usual, advismg on aome 
Mattsrs of detail ; and having followed the hearse to the place of inter- 
nent, chose, r^her against the suggestions of those near him, to descend 
to the tomb under the church, that be might see that all was arranged as 
be had intended. But when nothing o^ore remained to be done, when the 
•ingle lamp, by the light of whieb the coffin bod been adjusted in its place, 
wan withdrawn, and the doM* was cloned in darkness and silence on all 
ttwt remained of one who had been the object of so deep interest from 
iabBcj upwaid, natnn prevailed, for one Otoment only, orar all restfaiot.

had felt the inspiratioo of hia majestic presence ; he had known him in 
his manhood, and had spent two or three days with him by particular 
invitation at Mount VcmoD, days neTcr to be forgotten in any man*s life ; 
bis whole heart seemed to be imbued with the wannest admiration and 
affection for his character and serrices ; and it seemed as if he could not 
go down to his grave in peace until he had done somethioe to aid in per- 
petuating the memory of bis virtues and his valor. I need not say that I 
allude to the late Hon. Thomas Handasyd Perkins. He was one of the 
noblest specimens of humanity to which our city has ever given birth ; — 
leading the way for half a century in every generous enterprise, and set- 
ting one of the earliest examples of those munificent chanties which have 
given our city a name and a praise throughout the earth. He was one of 
your own honorary membera, Mr. President, and I have felt that I could 
do nothing more appropriate to this occasion — the first public festive occa- 
sion in Faneuil Hall which has occurred siiwe his death — and nothing 
more agreeable to the feelings of this association, or to my own, than to 
propose to you as I now do — 

*' The memory of Thomas Hamdasts Pskkihs." 

For a long time he had been deprived of the use of one of his eyes 
which was blinded by cataract ; how long he could not tell with accuracy, 
for the discovery that it was useless, and that he saw only with the other, 
was made by accident and much to his surprise ; but it must have been 
more than twenty years. Opening it one morning while the right eye 
was buried in the pillow, he found himself unable to perceive any otqects 
about him. For many years, however, he saw well enough for common 
purposes with the other ; but more recently even that one bad caused him 
•0 much trouble that he lived in fear of total blindness. Early in 1B58, 
cataract appeared in that eye also, and was making such rapid progress 
that in a few weeks all useful vision was lost. Under these circumstances, 
be r«0olved to submit to on operation on the one that had been so long 
obscured. It was successfully performed by Dr. H. W. Williams, of 
BtMton, the cataract being bn^en up in the month of March. Some time 
was necessary for the complete absorption of the fragments ; but in leas 
than three months the puptl had become entirely clear, and by the aid of 
eataiact glasses, he could not only see large objects as well as ever, but 
could read the newspapers, and even the fine print in the column of ship- 
news. His sight was at times rendered feeble afterward by the general 
debility of his system, and he never recovered the power of reading and 
writing with entire ease ; hut to do both in some degree was an advantage, 
in comparison with total loss of sight, that could hardly be appreciated, 
pSftieiJariy as it enabled him still to manage his own adairs, which he 
always wished to do, and did to his last day, even keeping his books with 
his own hand, excepting for a few months of his last year, when the 
eotiies were made from his dictation. 

In this, dte last year of hia life, he gave one more remaikable proof of 
his continued interest in what was going on about him, and of his readi* 
DCM (o aid liberally in all that he deemra important to puUic welfare and 
intelligence. A large and costly building had been erected for the Boston 
AdwcHBum by contribution from the public, liberally made for that pur- 
pose, that there mi^t be such an one as would correspond to tiie aspira- 
tioDS of tbe accompliafaed scholan who, fifty yean before, had founded 
the instbntioo. A fimd was now to be provided for annual expenses and 
for regolar additions to the library. With this view, on effort was made

during the summer, leaving lh« sum of two hundred thousand doJIats to I

" Hy Dear Sir : — If I pooesned anjrtbiog which I might auppose likehr 
to be more acceptable to you, as a proof of my esteem, than these t<m-

** But I do twt ; and therefore ask your acceptance of a copy of tbia 
edition of my speeches. 

** I have long cherished, my dear sir, a profouod, warm, affectionate, 
and I may say, a filial regard for your person and chanu:ter. 1 have 
looked upon you as one bom to do good, and who has fulfilled his mission; 
as a man, without spot or blemish ; as a merchant known aud honored 
over the whole world ; a most liberal supporter and promoter of scioLce 
and the arts ; always kind to scholars and literary men, and grrally be* 
loved by them all ; friendly to all the institutions of Religion, Morality, 
and Education; and an unwavering and determined suppoiter of tbs 
Constitution of the country, and of those great principles of Civil liberty, 
which it is so well calculated to uphold and advance. 

" These sentiments I inscribe here in accordance with my beat judg- 
ment, and out of the fullness of my heart ; and 1 wish here to record, also, 
my deep sense of the many perwHial obliaatiooa, under which you have

AJlhougfa private interment ia nrast common now, it seemed inappro- 
priate for one who had filled so lai^ a space in public regard. The ta- 
Beiml service took place at the church of the Rev. Dr. Gannett, where he 
had long worshipped, and waa mariied by one incident peculiariy touch- 
ing in its associatioa. The solemn music, usual on such occasions, was 
impressively performed by a large choir of pupils from the Perkins Insti- 
tnUon for the Blind, who had requested permission to sing the requiem for

John* Peritins, the elder, of Ipswich, as be is called on the records, and 
probably a cousin of the Rev. Wm., was also an early and honored an- 
cestor. He was bora in Newent, (as supposed,) in Gloucestershire, Eng., in 
1590. Dec. 1, 1630, he embaned with his wife and family for America, 
at Bristol, Eng., and arrived at Boston Feb. 5th, 1631, after a •' venr tem- 
pestuous voyage." Th^ came over in the ship Lyon, Capt. Wm. Pearce, 
and the famous Roger Williams was one of their fellow passengers. At 
this time their youngest child was about seven, and their oldest seventeen 
yean. On the 18th of the following May, (1631,) he was admitted free- 
man. He remained in Boston about two years, wlien in 1633 he removed 
to Ipswich. He was a representative to the General Court from that town 
in 1636, held various town offices and trusts, and appears to have been 
• man of great respectabili^. He owned the large island at the mouth 
of Ipswich River, which was then, and nearly to our own day, called 
PeriuDs's Island. It is still believed to be in the family. His house, 
which be gave, after bis wife's decease, to his youngest son Jacob, stood 
near Manning's Neck and close to the river. His vritl is doted March 28th, 
16M, and he probably died not long afler, as he then says he was "■ sick 
and weak in body." It was proved SepL 1654, and his estate was valued 
at ;£250. 06*. He was 64 years old at his death. The name of his wife 
waa Judith, and he led six children, as follows : — 

1. /oibt,* jun., b. 1614; admitted freeman. May 17,1637; m. Elizabeth 
, who died Sept 27, 1684. He died Oct 14, 1686, set 72.

Tbe descendants of John the elder, or semor, are very numerous and 
reqtectable, and as many of thera had the same name, it is extremely 
difficult to trace them. We give an imperfect list of them : 

1. John,' jun., his oldest son, lived and died in Ipswich. In Sept 1633, 
at tbe first settlement of the town, and when he was only nineteen years 
old, be saved the inhabitants from destruction by the Eastern Indians, wfao

was named Nuok-quul-da*wnds. 

Uiicui' 111* (tninfathcr was ihc Mmnc of Nukquul do "warn nbore named 
and was ihc cliirf Sotrliim of the Tcqitot Couotrcy and lived at Aakusa- 
bumsk abovenamed, and was itamc«l Wotpe«^uund. 

Hi* Unuiinolher was lite duuf;hter of WV-cruum Ilic chitrf Sachim vr 
the Nam^tuctts and her motlKr* name wus Kcsh-kc-cbot^Wall-fna-kunsb 
ihe cliivf fjacliim^ Squaw of the Mohcags. 

And she was neeee to Ahndon who was the aooe of NtKkquuldowuM 
and bhc was Sister to Aucoin[i|>iichaug HuggunHh, 

Uncus hia falber who was wholly of tim Rujall blood, hra name was

called Mak-ktin-rmp and hnr motbor before her was called by the Mine 
oamc, Talobems fatbcni name was Wopeg worrit 

Thti aaid Uocas further dcclarcth that about the timo of his fathcni de- 
ceaac his said father moved to Talobcm who was then the great Sochim 
of the PequottR counlrey for a maieh between bis eldest Bonne and said 
Talobems daughter, the «nid Tnlobem did r^^adily imbracc the motion 
abovcsuid and gave hia free consent. Atlcdging that by tbta coniunclton 
they isliould keep their Lntids entire from any violntio[n] cither from 
notghbariii^ or forreign Indians, but before the consurnalion of this match. 
the said eldest sonoo died, and tlion by the dctcrminnttou of the Indian 
Councill boili of llic I'cquotts niitl Mohccgs, it wns ooncludt-d uud juynlly 
agreed, that Uncas the ncirt brother to the deceased Rhould proceed in the

ten y<.'j>r9 before the Pc4]uon warrvs, and hod three children by her* two 
of which died Owaneco only surviving. 

PiirthtT the said Uncas tloih declare, and looks upon il a thing whteh 
may bo easily proved from tlie contract of the great Sachims (vis^ his 
father iind llie Kichimof the Peqiiot ConnTrT^>v upon the making of^lltat 
match above specified, that his right lo the Peqiioll countrey wan good 
aad uni{UC!itiu[tubl<j who adhough she wtu of tl»e Pcquott blood, she neither

ihoti^h in such allinttie unto the said Pequilts yet his wife nnd he shewing 
their (idclitie unto the English, hinMolfe advcntiifing for their assit** in 
that warro, that it would look hard to him by this unhappy wane to be 
deprived of his true and legall right to that couotrey, which if it dull 
■eem good to my good friends ihc Knglish to my MincRMors so fiirro as 
reoaon shall appear to nwrnlain, it will wiiliout doubt be a friendly tbou^ 
not u costly rcqijiiall of my former or later adventuring mysclfc in my 
own person with the lives of my SubieclB for their astsislance in offence of 
the enemies of my good friends the kngliah I shall thankfully occepl it

NOTE ON THE SARGENT FAMILY. 

" Jonothno Sargent " was one of those who about IG43, at New Haven, 
with Theophilus Eaton, took the " oulh of fidelity" to the govcmmoni 
then and ihorc esiablished. We find him there, in couil, in 1G47, Testify* 
ing concerning the bad quality of the leather of his shoes. " The iiuoaka 
and oulsunlcs and all fell from the upper leulhcr." Fmm the Braofoid 
records wt. learn that " goodwife Sargnni " died Di-c 17, IGSl. and Joo- 
athon Snrccnt, Dee. 9, 165(2. Jonathan, Hannah, Thoma.<>, nnd John, 
children of Jonathan Sargent, "a member of y* church al Uranford/^ 
were baptized at New Havrn, 10th Gth mo., ICSl. Of these, Jonallwa, 
being a young man, was among ihe fin:l taettlcrs of Newark, N. J., where 
John Rerf^ant, the missionary, his grandson, was bom in 1710. The 
father of the missionary, who was also named Jonalluin, died about 1733* 
leaving a widow, !iubKcr)uenlly second wife of Col. John Cooper, and four 
sons, Thomnii, John, Jonathnn, and Dnniel. The. \aW Hon. John Sergeant, 
of Philadelphia, was the son of Jonathan Dickinson Sergeant, and grood- 
•OQ of Abigail the dnughler of Rev. Jonathan Dickinson, she having mai^ 
ried Jonalhan Sergounl, the brother of the misaionar}'. These TactA, 
though giithi-red fium documents fragmontoiy and ta localities wide Apart,

VOTES PASSED BY THE INHABITANTS OF MARLBOROUGH 
AT A TOWN MEETING, MARCH 29, 1770. 

The Inhabitants of the Town of Marlborough in the County of Middle- 
sex, being legally assembled in Town Meeting, and taking into considera- 
tion the deplorable and embarrassed state of America, the many distroMoa 
it lies under, the violent assaults that are made upon our invaluable Rights 
and Privileges, the unconstitutional and alarming attempts that are nwde 
by an aspiring, audacious, arbitrary power, to strip ua of our Liberty and 
all tbooe glorious Priviledges Civil and &icred which we thro* the kind 
indulgence of Heaven have .long enjoyed, and to bring us into a Statn of 
Slavery under such Tyrants who have no bounds to their aspiring ambi- 
tion, which leads them to the perpetration of the blackest Crimes even to 
the sbeding the blood of Innocents, an instance of which we have very 
lately had m that horrid, detestable and sinful Massacre committed in the 
town of BoSTOH ; and considering that our Estates are not sufficient to 
satisfy the Avarice of a growing arbitrary Power, but that the lives of the 
harmless Subjects must fall a sacri&ce to the rage and fury of bloodthirsQr 
and mercinary wretches. We think that notwithstanding the imsuccev- 
Eulness of the many constitutional methods which have been ^en to regain 
to us the free and full enjoyment of our constitutional Rights and Liber- 
ties ; yet it is now absolutely necessary to use our greatest efforts in a 
ooDstitutional Manner to recover our inherent Rights and preserve ua from 
a State of Slavery and Misery ; and as it so plainly appears that the Non 
Importation agreement entered into by those truly patriotick Merchants in 
Boston and other Places on (he Continent, so directiy tends with other 
Methods that are taken to the Restoration of our Liberties which we have 
held so sacred and dear to us and which cost our Predecessors an immense 
treasure to secure, not only to enjoy themselves, but to hand down to their 
Posterity : We are astonished to 6nd that a number are at this critical

PRESIDENT CHARLES CHAUNCY, HIS ANCESTORS AND 

DESCENDANTS. 

[Br William Cbacsct Fovlxb.] 

[CoUmned from page 190.] 

HIS OLD AOB AMD DBATH. 

Some miodA never seem to grow old. Even on the vei^ of extreme 
old age, they retain the same freahness of reeling and the same vigor of 
iniellect which they had in their early prime. The mind of President 
Chauncy beliHtged to this class. It connoued earnest, active and strong, 
to the last, bearing fruit even in old age. 

" After age had enfeebled him, the fellows of the college once leading 
this venenble old man to preach a sermon on a winter day, out of afi^- 
tion unto him, to discourage him from so difficult an undertaking, told him 
' ^, you toUl certaudy die in the pulpit.'' But, he laying hold of what 
they said, as if they had oSered him thoflgreateat encoyragement in the 
worid, pressed the more vigorously through the snow dr^, and said, ' How 
glad should I be, if what you say might prove true I ' " 

" This eminent Moldier of our Lord Jesus Christ continued still to endure 
kardmaM at a good soldier of the Lord Jetua Ckritt. When his friend 
pressed him to remit and abate his vast labors, be would reply, * Oportet 
imperatorem tUaitem mori ; '' accordingly he stood beyond expectation in 
the learned camp, where he had been a commander. At length, m the 
commencement of the year 1671, he made AfareweU oration, wherein he 
tocA a solemn farewell of his friends, and then sent for bis children upon 
whom he bestowed his solemn iletsing, with fervent piayer commending 
tbem to the grace of God. Accordingly the end of this year proved the 
end of hia mys. Wbeo iUnees was growing upon him, the Heo. Vria* 
O^ces, niter hia requested supplication, asked him to give a sign of his 
bopefiil and joyous assurances, if he yet had them, of his entering into 
etunal glory. Whereat the speechless old man ItAed up his hands, as 
high towards Jteaven as he could lift them, and so bis ripened sonl flew 
thither, Feb. 19, 1671, in the eightieth yearofhisage."-CoTTon IfATBEm's 
Mun^ia. 

The following encomium was bestowed on him by Incieaae Mather, a 
moceMor in the presidency. Hie Chanc4eus, juem Cakoluk Magnnm

Willard, Mr. Solomon Stoddard, Gov. Dudley, Judge SewatI, and others, 
of Dote both in Church and State. About half of the graduates under 
Pnaident Chauncy became ministers of the gospel. Two of his pupils 
were chief justices of the colony, and one was afterwards chief justice of 
the colony of New Yoik, and successively governor of New York and 
New Hampshire, and three became presidents of colleges, viz : two of 
Hurard and one of Yale. — Su Sketch of Harvard Ci^kge by SunrsL

his six SODS and to his distinguished tion-tn>law, but to all who came within 
tho sphere of his inlloencc. . Tbiti taMe seems to have come down from 
kini, OS from a living fountaia, to hia posterity, even to tbo proaoot g«a- 
eralion. 

tie was eminently cooscientioua in what he did and in what he said. 
When he did what was wrong, he alill listened to th« upbroidings of coq- 
scienco as to tbe voice of a spirit, distressing ihouKh tlicr were. He 
never soams to attempt, by drawing metaptiyBicnl didtiikctionx, lo throw off 
the blame from himself upon others, or upon the circumstances in which 
|»e was placed. He never, in a mercantile way, eikdearors to balance liis 
•ocount with God, by crediting himself the good which he aimed to accom- 
plish l^ his sins, or which ho did accomplish. , He never, by any pretence 
of benevolence, or by any apleiidid act of charity, endeavors to conoeal 
his misdoing from the public. If, liko Craiimer, he publicly yielded to 
tcraptaiion, like Craiimer lia wns willing to do public ponnnoe. " Ho («U 
compelled cvoo to tho te«lh and forchood of his faults to give in evi- 
denee." 

In his endeavora lo instruct and enlighten others, and lead them in the 
tt*ay of tbcir duty, h« may sometimes have trusted too much to his own 
clear percepiiona of truth and to his honesty in imparting it, as tho means 
by which to win success, wiibaut taking sufficiently into view the dulness 
artd the prejudicas of mon. He ongag'^d in no intrigues. Ho practised 
no manccuTCrins. Elis was a fnuik, Kn^lish, noble nature. ** True to 
imagined right beyond control," in the cntiB proposed, and in the means 
employed, ho trusted not to those arts by which the >' worse may be made 
to a]>pear the batter ree«oo.'' So diligent vas he in busioeM, so fervent 
was lie in spirit, so ready wa.i he to do with hia might wliat his hands 
found to do, that his appeared like an angelic esmestneas, both in intensity 
And constancy. His worldly wisdom might sometimes bo doubted; bis 
bortoflty, uover. 

Id hia views of religious duties he fell into some of the follies wliich 
cbamctcrized soine of tho Pu -'tnns of his day, as for instanco proacbing 
againsf tli^j «in of w<^:irin" oag tmir. His pcr^M^nal piety wosof tlie highest

Mather speaks of her in the following terms : — 

" ^le happy mother of these worthy sons, was Calkaruu, the dao^ter 
of Robert Eyre, Esq., who dying a little before her consort, bad her My

of Puritanism, so they comprise the wisest, the fruitfullest, the exactist, 
and the holiest mZu of Ucingy that ever I saw together in any short Jhnun*

medicine ; was a preacher and a physician ; was a difltinguished physician 
in BostoD, where he resided ; weot to Burbadoes, where he died ; Dr. 
Charles Chauncy says " that he left no childreD, but his widow was ative 
since my settlement. I have seen and conversed with her." He had 
CHoe child, a son, named Hieodore, who died young. 

He presented a petition to the General Court, in which he stated " that 
his father had been a servant of the country in the above trust, (i. e. as 
president of the college,) seventeen years, in all which time he had never 
received for allowance any other payment than what the country rate bad 
brought in, which had greatly impoverished his family, through the great 
■traits they had been put into ; so that if they bad not relief in some other 
kind, they could not have subsisted ; and now after his decease, his 
(AildrcD are left in a very poor conditioD, especially our brother, that 
through the Lord^s afflicting nand is so far distemj>ered as to render him 
wholly unable to do any thing toward his own maintenance, and he will 
be an annual charge ; and it is a great addition to this so great affliction, 
that his poor brothers have not in their hands to relieve him. 

The petitioner asks nothing for himself, nothing for the other members 
of President Chauncy's femily, but only that wlnU is now due may be 
paid in money, and that our dear distressed brother may not {>erish for 
want of support" 

" On this petition the magistrates grant, that the arrearages due should 
be paid in money, and the deputies assenting did further grant that ten 
poonds a year should be paid by the treasurer of the county to the deacon 
of Cambridge for the support of the petitioner's brother ; to which the 
magiBtrates fotind it in their hearts to assent"

1856.] President Charlea Chauwf. 259 

According to the account of Sir Hemy Chauacy, a second Thomiu, 
the father of William, succeeded the first Thomas, son of the first WiU 
liam, and held a short time. If there were two of these Thomases, it 
was the first that held a short time, but it is more probable there was but 
one, son of the first, and father of the last, William. 

The first William died in 17tb Edward HI. (1344.) In the 31st of the 
same king, only fourteen years after, Thomas Cl^uncy gave twenty 
marks, for leave to enfeoff William, his first bom son (prime genitum) 
and Joan (Jobannan) daughter of Roger Bygot with rectine, lands, and 
tenements m Thoraldby and Skirpenbeck, (Rotulorum Originalium in 
Abbreviatio, vol. ii., p. 246, column 1st, at the foot), and the next year it 
appears by Co/. Inq.^poit mortem., vol. ii., p. 306, that said Thomas did 
enfeoff William his son and " Joh'an " his wife with six booates of land, 
&c., part of the manor of Skirpenbeck. 

Thus in fifteen years after the death of the first William, the second 
was already manied and his father Id possession of the baroncy. This 
was ninety-one yean after the 1268, when the father of the first William 
was 23 years ma. There is a bare possibility that generations succeeded 
each other in this case so rapidly, as they must have done, had there been 
two Thomases between the two Willianu, but it is more agreeable to the 
ordinary course of things, to believe that diere was but one. 

Another reason that leads me to the conclusion that there is but one, is, 
that I found, after careful research, no records of the decease of two. 
One appears to have died tn 49th of Edward III., seized of the manor of 
Skirpenbeck, of Bouthorp and Thoralby. He was certainly the father of 
William, last Baron, as the references given sufficiently prove. They 
also prove that the Hiss Biipt, who became the wife of this William, was 
named not Elizabeth, as Chauncy,'CIutterbuck and Burke have it, but 
Joan, and that she was the daughter not of John Bigot but of Roger, who 
was John^s younger son, that succeeded to the lordship of Settinington, after 
the death m John's eldest son John. John, the broUier of the 5th Earl of 
Norfolk, died in the &th of Edward II., the same year in which Thomas 
de Chauncy died. It is impossible that, as the pedigree given by Sir 
Henry Chauncey represents, that the one was great, great grandfather of 
William de Chauncy, and the other father of William's wife, — N. C. 

10. WiLLiAX DE CHAI7KCT was SOU and heir of Thomas de Chauncy. 
He received from King Richard confirmation of all his titles, charters and 
liabilities. He married, as menticmed above, /oon, daughter of Roger, 
youngest son of Sir John Btgod, brother of the Earl of Norfolk, and not 
Elizabeth the daughter of John, as stated by Sir Henry Chaimcy Cluttu* 
buck, and Burke, and in other genealogies. By her he had a son, 1399. 
This BaitMi, namely, William, 22d of Richard II, obtained license from 
the King to alienate his manor of Skirpenbeck, with the title, and other 
estates in. Yorkshire. Besides obtaining on lease the manor of Fishobury, 
he pnrchased considerable estates in Stepney, near London, where ho 
died and vras buried. 

11. John CnAimcT, son and heir of William de Cbanncey, the last 
Baron of Skirpenbeck, married Margcaret, oae of the c<^irs of William 
Gifford of Gedlestone. He died Feb. 32, Henry tiie VI.

John Leventhorp of Shingey Hall. He died May 7, 1749, and wai

ber death he married Agoes, widow of Edward HumberstoD, by whom he 
bad George, Edward, and Charles, the last of which is the subject oi the 
preceding history. 

As a BaroD of the realm, in feudal times, each peraoa above men- 
tioned holding that tide, was necessarily a military chieAain, absolute ia 
command in his Bsroay, having the power even of life snd death, over 
his own retainers, and, by the tenure of military service, which he was 
bound on summoDS to render to the King, of whom he held his estates 
and title, must sustain his military organization of Knights and Esquires, 
his Arms, Heralds, and Purauivants, his Banners, &c. But they enjoyed 
a bigh social position, as founders and benefactors of churches, and insti- 
tutions for the poor. They were more distinguished for their moral than 
for their military aehieveinents. 

T^e maternal ancestry, or the ftmilies in the female line, include many 
of the highest nobility, both Saxon and Norman, as may be seen by a 
gjance at the pedigree. A full history of them would be a history of 
Europe during the middle ages, as well as after the Conquest. 

Several females of the families named in the table were princesses, in 
cases in which the male line bad become extinct, so they merged not cmly 
tbeir estates but their names and bonors in the alliance. Thus the arms 
of their bmilies are quartered with the original arms of Chauncy. Of 
these there are Chauncy of Ooeolnshire, Gifibrd, De Boos, De Alhini, 
Profit Horn, Cornwall, &c. 

The reader may be referred to English history for an account of saeh 
names as the De Veres earls of Oxford, Bigods earls of Norfolk, who 
were hereditary eoris, Marshails of England, Marshalls, Earls of Pern- 
broke, the Strongfoows, Gilbert and Bichard, Earls of Pembroke, Chep- 
stow, and conquerors of Ireland, Earls of Clare or Clarence, afterwards 
merged in the Royal &mi1y of the Plantagenets. 

Siward, Earl of Northumberland, commonly called Siward the great, 
immortalized by Shakspeare as the conqueror of Macbeth, and as placing 
Ualcolm, his son-in-law, on the throne of Scotland, when about to die, 
arose bora his bed, and arrayed himself in his richest and best armor, 
nying, "It was a shame for a warrior to die in his bed.*' He left 

Waltheo7, Eart of Northumberiand, to whom William the Conqueror 

Sve his niece in marriage, wishing to conciliate the powerful Saxon no- 
ity. Notwithstanding which be entered into a conspiracy against the 
king, was taken and beheaded at Winchester. His daughter Maud 
married 

SiMOH Db St. Liz, Eari of Northumberluid, Huntington and North* 
ampton, a great favorite of the Conqueror, whose daughter Maud max- 
ried 

WtLLLUc DB ALBini Bbito, SOD of Bobert de Todenir, a noble Nor- 
man, who came in with the Cimqaeror, who bestowed upon him immense 
estates in the connty of Leicester. Here be built Belvoir Castle, now 
owned and occupied by the Duke of Bntland, who inherits them through 
a female coheir of Lord De Boos. Tliis Baron was distinguished by hu 
liberality, especially to the monastery at St. Albans, and also for his valor 
<m the field. At the battle of Jenarchebry, in Normandy, he was said to 
bave determined the fate of the day by breaking through the enemy's 
lines by his single arm. He died leaving two sons, William, his heir, 
and Ralph, from whom descended the Lords St. Daubeny, the Earls 
of Bridgewater.

Ts£ first UdcsI aocostor of out 
bmily,of whocn we poMes* any cer-

ditiofi says his uanie was John,) wbo 
marnRd b tlAUjfltier of Rcr. Stfpben 
liachilor; had ihrcc sODs (ud died in 
England, leaTing the widow and b«r 
sons to the care of her fatlier. Mr. 
Bucbilof wtui boni in England oboal 
1&6I ; took episcopal ofdvn,but w\» 
ejected fur non-coDformity and retired 
with others (o llullund, and then lo 
America. He c«m« over in ship 
Witliaiii and Fnuicis, Oipt. Tliumos, 
ond landed at Boalon, Juno 5, 1633, 
aod went dirccUy U> Lynn, wltoro his 
daughter, Theodale, who mnrned 
Chrisiopher HttMcjihad aJK'ndy MI- 
-lletlt Horo they remained Tour or five year*, while the old gentleman, 
over 70 years of ag«, discharged the dudcsof pastor over n church he bad 
eotwlituted, wtthoui regular inslallatioo, composed of the company b* 
brought wilb him, and such of the former lohnbitants of tbc \,\wts u 
cbose to aasociale with thorn. On account of difiicultica in tlio church, 
owing in pan, at leasi, lo Mr. BachUor^s eccentric managemeni, hi* re«i- 
denee here bcenine unpleasant, and taking his cytmpany with him, now 
iacrciucd by the addition of Mr. Ktiswy'a family, and perhaps some othora, 
he rcmo?cd to Ipawich.lhcn to Newbury, and in 1638 settled in Hampton, 
where he was regularly insiailed first pastor of the coogregationnl chureh 
in Ibtit place, mrc Jvhn and WiMium Sanborn livvd and di^^d. In 
tlampion, then ineluding Norlhamplun, Hampton Falls, Southampton, 
9eabroak and Konsingtoo, and in Sirathnm, Exetor and Newmarket Ured 
their descendanu for near a century, eealribuiiDg ibeir full proportion to 
tbe bone and muscle as well as the intelligence and enterprise of the 
community. 

At the close of tbe first (rentury after their immigmtion, few of the ram 
had passed the limits uf Old Hampton as then bounded ; and tu (be copioua 
and well preserred records of that town and its church, we arc indebted, 
chiefly, for the reliable account we are ablo to give of four or fire of tbe 
Km genetatkias. 

In regard lo the orlhoeraphy of the name, there seems conaidcmble 
discrepancy of opinion. A very large majority of our name in America 
write it Sanborn, but all reports I have obtained from tbe old worlii agree 
iaapellinffit SarobnrTtc or Samboumr. Dr. Thomas Sanborn, of Nuw- 
port, ^f. H., who visited Rurope in 1S53, saya, " The cooclusion arrived 
U IN that the name of Sanborn is not to be found in the British b!es^ bot 
the name of Sombornc is lo bo found in Bristol and London. 1'h^-i^ home 
seems to be in Hontibrd [?] Co., Bcrksi Ilnmpsliiro and Somersetshire."

ADDENDA TO THE ARTICLE ON THE " STOWES." 

The following obliging note, from J. Wingate Thornlon, Esq., was 
received too late for insertioD in tbe last number of tbe Begister. It 
speak* for itself: — 

30, Cmtrt St. BoiUm, 
Deai Sia, March 22, 1856. 

I regret that I can send you only tbe following, copied from the record* 
made by the Apostle Eliot. Of tbe later generations 1 think I have oo 
note. 

" JoHM Stow — he arrived in New England the 7th of the 3d month, 
anno 1634, — he brought his wife and 6 children, Tkomtu, Elizabeth, 
John, Nathaniel, Samuel, Thankful." 

" Elizabeth Stow the wife of John Stow. — She was a very godly 
matron, a blessing not only to her family, but to all the church — where 
she had led a Christian conversation a few year* among tia. She died 
and left a good savor behind her." 

Verity here is an apostolic eulogy, no doubt very pleasant to you and 
yours. Respectfully, J. Wihoatb TBOurroit. 

Prof. C. E. Stowe. 

Tbe following extract I make ftom Mrs. S. C. HalPs " I^lgrimages to 
English Shrines," pp. 162-4. 

" Stow also memorialized King James I, and the king — base cnven of 
all kingly greamess that be was — gave — what? — a home? — a pennon 
gilded with kind words ? Not so ; be gave him a privilege I — he gave 
him permission— TO bko. We saw this fact printed in the ChronieU, and 
deemed it a libel upon tbe memoTy of any that bad worn our royal En- 
glish crown. We would not believe it, and so posted off to the British 
Museum, hoping not to find what we sought in the Harleian Collectioo. 
Yet here is a true copy from the original there extracted : — 

" Jaroea, by the grace of God, King of England, Scotland, France and 
Ireland, Defender of the Faith, etc. To all our well-beloved subjects, 
greeting: 

■* Whereas our loving subject John Stowe, (a very aged and worthy 
member of our city of London,) this five and forty yeara hath to bis great 
charge, and with neglect of his ordinary roeans of maintenance, (for the 
geneisl good as well of posteritie, as of the present age) compiled and 
published divers necessary bookes and chronicles ; therefore we in rec- 
ofnpense of these his painfull labois, and for encouragement to the like, 
have in our royall inclination been pleased to grant our Letton Patent, 
under our great Seale of England, dated eighth of March 1608, ihefetry 
Milfaorizing him the sayd John Stowe, and tus deputies, to collect amongst 
our loving subjects theyr voluntary contribution and kinde gratuities, as 
by the sayd Letters Paieot more at lai^ may appeare. Now seeing 
that our sayd Patents (being but one in themselves) cannot be shewed 
forth in divera places or parishes at once (as the occasions of his speedy 
putting them in execution may require) we have therefore thought expe-

HUNTINGTON. 

A reverential and an historical regard for this family, and particularly 
for the &mily of my maternal grandfather, has led me to collect Bome of 
the facts relative thereto for publication in the Register. 

Doct. Thomas Huntington was the youngest son of John Huntington 
and his wife Civil Tracy, bom at Norwich, Ct., 13 Januan^, 1745. He 
removed to AshfonJ, Ct., about 1770, where, on the 7th January, 1773, 
he married Molly, daughter of Ichabod Ward and his wife Phebe Tyler, 
who was bom at Attleborough, Mass., 6 March, 1753. He was a grad- 
uate of Yale College, Class of 1766. While at Ashford be followed the 
practice of medicine as a profession, and was also engaged in mercan- 
tile pursuits, in which he accumulated considerable property. In (he 
spring of 1799, he removed to Longmeadow, Mass.; thence, in Decem- 
ber, 1800, he removed to Hartford, Ct; and thence, in June, 1801, to 
Canaan, Litch6eld Co., Ct, where he purchased a form under cultiva- 
tion, with dwelling-house and other buildings, of Gideon Lawrence, son 
of Daniel Lawrence of the same place. 

This westward movement to a point very much short of wfaat we are 
DOW- familiar with as the far West, was then thought to be a very con* 
siderable reach into the land, which lie beneath the setting sun. Here 
be resumed the practice of medicine, and was variously engaged in 
farming, manufiu:turing and mercantile puisuits. Somewhat eccentric 
in his habits and mannets, he was a pattern of persevering industry, 
temperance, frugality, and other virtues. He died at Canaan, 33 Feb. 
1S35. His wife d. 31 Mar. 1838. Their children were all bora in Ashford. 

"Diomtu, the eldest, was bom 39 September, 1773, and was married 
to Mary Burbidge, of New York, about 1808. He was liberally edu- 
cated, and opened a law office in Hartford, Ct, where he continued 
until his decease, whicb occurred 9 Nov., 1833. His wife died at New 
Yori[, about 1639. They had a son named Erastus. 

MoBy (or Mary as she was generally called,) was bom 17 Oct., 1776. 
She married Albtm Boee, of Canaan, in 1821, and is now living with 
her husband at Geneva, N. Y. 

Era^mM was bom 6 January, 1779. He was engaged in mercantile 
pursuits, in Albany, in 1604-&-6, in company with a person named 
Pratt They kept a dry goods store. He died at Havana, Cuba, 17 Sept, 
1807, where his monument still remains. 

Matilda was bom 39 December, 1760. She married Salmon Pease, 
of Canaan, 14 June, 1603, and is now living with her husband at Char- 
lotte, Vermont 

Claritta was bom 17 June, I7S4, and is rtow living at Charlotte, Vt 

Horace was born 16 July, 1766, and died at Canaan, 13 March, 
1846. He married Chloe Franklin, daughter of Silas Franklin, of 
Canaan, in 1813, who died 23 Feb. 1643, aged 50. Tbeir children 
were Horace F., Mary, Miles H., John and kfortha. 

MUet was bom 29 April, 1769, and died 1 May, 1790. 

Omen was bom 1& Hay, 1793. He married Eunice Day, daughter 
of Tliomes Day, in 1615. Their children are Clarissa and Atme. He 
died lamentably in the wilds of Califomia, in the fall of 1650, whither 
he went in the spring of the same year, where his remains are laid, with- 
out a stone to mark tbe spot. He liad the melancholy sadsfection of stop- 
ping St Havana, on bis way out, and seeing the stone which commemo- 
rated the death of his brother Erastus. Fbsdbbick S. Pease.

TV Woreater Family: or tke DeaeendaiUa of Ra. William Worcester, 
with a brief notice of the Connecticut Wooiter Family. Collected by 
J. P. WoBCESTSs, Lyon, 1856. 8vo., pp. 111. 

If eminent names in a &mily or race ia necesaary to eodde them to conaideration in 
a geikealogical hiatoiy or pedieree, those of Worcester are pecnliarlT deaeiiing. But 
we do not admit that it ia at idl neoessair for a Eamily to be nighly dlatinnished before 
its hiatory is worth preMrving ; for, by that rale, erery family would be In ntter daric- 
DeH, aa to its origin. 

The work before oa ia well put together in all iMpects ; fbll with regard to dates, md 
anpported with minute references to anihorities. This latter accompaniment will be a 
gnat help to the defendants of the di^rent fomtliea, and will sare the fiitnte inresti- 
gator a worid of trouble. The biographical sketches are compnhenaiTe, well written, 
and in good taste ; and the woit, aa a wliole, will terre a* a model to those composing 
family hiatories. Thoogh it waa produced at a •oborban preaa, ita typographical exe- 
dUioD tf highly creditaUe to the printer. There are in die work eogtannn of the 
Itev. Noah, and the Rot. Samuel Worcester. The fcwmer is finely execnted, and b, 
donbdess, aa acctnate likeness of the distinguished original.

MDCCCLVI. 

Wb have itceived a copy of the book whose title is giren above, and beUering that 
its BDbject vrill insnn it a wide drcolation in tha vicinity, we desire to examine it m 

Mr. Bridgman is already well known here, and his last wo^ on the King's Chapel, 
ihongb a very handsomelv executed volome, is much surpassed in typographical beanqr 
by tite present volnme, wiiich is indeed a model in all that depends npcm the printer 
and engraver. 

We mnsl, howevfr, say that it would have' been ,^11 had the editor adhered to his 
former system, of subjoining to all commnnicated articles, the initials of the writers. 
In this caae the amoimt of authority to be assigned to eadi article is more oasily de- 
cided. 

We do not propose to inquire whether tha inscriptiont on Ae stones have been accu- 
Tttdy ocqwed, merely hinting onr regret that on pages 10, 19, 38, 31, 33, 80 (?), 101, 
177, 178, S07, 316, tne simple announcement sbonld be made that these monnments 
bof« shields of arms, without giving an enj^ving, or even a description of them. Will 
Mr. Bridgman remedy this niuortonate omission in his second volume T The &milies 
in Boston entitied to bear arms are so few, that all reliable &cts like these sculptures 
iboold be recorded. 

Since writing the above, however, feeling the improprieQr of saStoing the coats of 
arms, borne on theee tombstonei, to be lott to those who have not aocest to the yard, 
we have taken the trouble to hunt tfaem ont and copy them.

thns leada as if written by Mr. Brid^man. The Lorii^; Memoir ia copied, apparently 
without change, from Copp's Hill Epitaphs. 

We b^ leare to inquire why the coat-of-wnu is inserted befbte this article ! Are 
we to m^etatand that the fiunuy here b traced back to the fkmily which bean theee 



It might haTe been added to the Lowell artide that PerciTBl Lowell belonged to a 
" Tisbation family," and therefore entitled lo use a coat-of-arms. 

The WUlis fiunily, descended from Ber. John B^y, ia that of Nathaniel Willis, tfaa 
wcU-ksown pnbliatier of this d^. 

The Cabot HeuKnr on page 193 hat one page cooceming George Cabot, and two 
and a half deroted to John Cahot and bis ions, the ^reat naral exploran. We seed 
bardly add that no connection between the two families is even hinted at. 

Page S23. The Warren Family oecnpies scTeral pages, and the sketch ia credited to 
"Lorate** Boaton Orators." We must notice two misprints in the first paragrairii, 
cansed by fbllowing the original. The Dncbese of Nonnandy waa Gnnnor not Goonier, 
aad Warren is titiuted in Anhin-Ie-Caaf, not Anb-in-le-Canf. To add one generatioa 
to die Wanens, Wtlliam, Eari of Warenne is beliered by M. Le Prevoet to have been 
die aon of Ralf de Wanene. This flef of Warenne belonged to the Nerille or Nenrille 
tedly, and imtbt to the Warrens, whose eopvt ioremce was Bellencombre (BeOas 
OanJw) aaciendy named Tarimna from die river which flowed throngh it. See 
Waco's Chrtmicle, p. SI7. It is naelees at this time to consider the parentage of 
Gcadred, the wife or William de Waiten, or the piecise point at which the Warrens of 
Poynion branched olt from die main Mock. Becent Eruriisb anthoritiea differ in their 
dsdiions from the opinion given in the " Genealogy of Warren." The most important 
pofn to be ooosidered is the connection between Peter Wan«n of Boston, the ancestor 
of General Warren, and John Warren, the fWlow-paasenger of Governor Winthrop, 
Wo regret to see that no proob of the relationship have yet been discorered. 

For the benedt of the fortnnate possessora of the magnlflceot " Genealogy of War> 
fen," we we will give the reanlts of onrexaminadon of d^ Heralds' Visitations printed 
dierein. No. 1 corroborates the last paragraph on page 4S ; Nos. IX and 13 are referred 
lo fai the flnt paragraph on the tame page, tnudng the elder branch of the issue of Sir 
Iiswicnee de Warren ; No. 14 is a continuation In a snbdiTision ; and we believe these 
lo be all the vjiitations leUting to the line extending to America. We presume that 
the descent of William Wanen of Cannton, and the idendty of JcAn Warren of Head- 
boro with the emigrant are both setded beTtrnd doabt, thon^ the omission of the an- 
diorlty was a defect in Dr. Wanen's book. We must, however, express onr regret 
dtat Hr. Bridgman has not been able to add anything to strengthen the probability 
tbat Joeqth Warren of Boston, lftS9, was die aon of thia John. 

We have tbns, nunhlingly, travelled throogh the book, and ovr final opinion is, that 
no oae inteiteted in Boaton andqnities can well be withool it. 

We have made the above correctioni on accoimt of the intrinsic valne of the book; 
and fceliog that the pnblic owe mnch to the antiior for Ua three Boston works, since 
M one else woold or coold have devoted hts time to them, we trust the book may 
neat with a wide dtiMdadon, and dial we may soon have more wottf finm the same
