This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary 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 domain. 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 vary country to country. 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 maiginalia 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.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

+ Make 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-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated 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 attributionTht GoogXt "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 liabili^ can be quite severe.

JANUARY, 1916 

By Hon. Ckablss Siditst Embion, LL.B., of Newton, Maas. 

Albebt Habbison Hott, a life member of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society, for some twenty years a member of its Boajxl 
of Directors,* and during the years 1868-1875 Editor of the Registeb, 
died in Boston, Mass., 10 Jmie 1915, in the ei^ty-ninth year of his 
age. He was bom at Sandwich, N. H., 6 December 1826, the fifth 
chQd and fourth son of Rev. Benjamin Ray and Lucinda (Freeman) 
Ho3rt, and was named for the two sons of Mrs. Daniel HQ3rt, who was 
present at his birth. 

The family name of Hoyt is of Old German or Dutch or possibly 
of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is spelled in some thirty or forty different 
ways. It is apparently one of those surnames that are derived from 
personal peculiarities or characteristics. The noun hoit in the north 
of England meant '* an awkward, ill-bred youth ; " in eastern England 
the expression hoit-Or^aU implied ''assuming airs of importance 
unsuitable to years or station;" in Lancaster hoit was used for ''a 
large stick," and in Bucks for "a newt." The verb to hoit meant to 
indulge in riotous and noisy mirth, while the adjectives Aaif^/-^^'^ &Bd 
kity^ity mean ''thoughtless, haughty, gay, and noisy." In the 
present age the family is known as Hoyt, Hoit, Haight, or Hight, and 
is in excellent repute.! 

On account of missing records it is impossible to state definitely 
the early generations in the line of descent of Colonel Hoyt from the 
first New fingland ancestor of this family. There are, however, 
s^xing probabilities that his great-great-grandfather, Benjamin 
Hoyt, was a son of Ephraim* and ELannah (Godfrey) Hoyt of Hamp- 
ton, N. H., a grandson of Thomas^ and Mary (Brown)t Hoyt, and a 
great-grandson of John^ and Frances Hoyt, who were original settlers 
of Salisbury, Mass., about 1640 and of Ainesbury, Mass., about 1642. 

Benjamin^ Hoyt, the great-great-grandfather of Albert Harrison 
Ho3rt, was bom 7 June 1702 (?), was living at Ipswich, Mass., in 
1727-1729, and about 1742 removed to Shrewsbury, Mass., where he 
died before May 1760. He married first, at Ipswich, 11 November

secondly, about 1739, Widow Joanna Battin; and thirdly, about 

1752, Susanna . He was a blacksmith and husbandman, and 

is placed at the head of the Worcester County branch of the Hoyt 

His son, Benjamin^ Hoyt, was bom at Ipswich 20 December 1727, 
and died at Princeton, Mass., about 1802 or 1803. He married first, 
about 1746, Eunice Ray, who was bom at Marlborough, Mass., 27 
January 1728/9, and died at Hubbardston, Mass., 3 January 1771, 
daughter of Abel of Marlborough; and secondly, 21 April 1771, Mrs. 
Mary (Warren) Steams, widow of Dea. Benjamin of Rutland, Mass., 
formerly of Lexington, Mass. She died at Princeton 8 February 
1799. Benjamin Ho3rt, who in deeds is generally styled yeoman, 
went about 1750-1760 to the territory now comprised in l^e town of 
Hubbardston, where he settled on Great Farms, No. 15. He was 
chosen selectman and assessor of Hubbardston at the first town 
meeting there, 3 July 1767, and was re-elected in 1768 and 1769. In 
1772 he was again elected assessor, and often served as coUector and 
constable and on important town committees. He was enrolled as 
the second member of the Hubbardston church, after its organiza- 
tion, 10 March 1771, and continued to live at Hubbardston imtQ 
1779. From 1780 until his death he Uved at Princeton, where he 
was taxed from 1791 to 1799. 

The grandparents of Colonel Hoyt were Benjamin^ Hoyt of New 
Braintree, Mass., and of Craftsbury, Vt., who was bom at Hubbards- 
ton 11 December 1761 and died at Craftsbury 29 October 1843, and 
Lydia Joslyn, who died at Craftsbury 22 April 1850, dau^ter of 
Benjamin of Marlborough and New Braintree and a descendant of 
Henry Joslyn, who came from Ilngland as one of the stewards of 
Capt. John Mason and Sir Ferdinando Gorges. They were married 
in 1788, and were possessed of more than ordinary strength of mind 
and character. 

Rev. Benjamin Ray' Hoyt, the father of Colonel Hojrt, was bom 
at New Braintree 6 January 1789, and died at Salem, N. H., 3 Octo- 
ber 1872. He removed with his parents to Craftsbury in 1795. He 
was ordained a deacon in the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1811 and 
an elder in 1814. He was a preacher continuously in various parts of 
New England from 1807 to 1855, his first station being at Needham, 
Mass., in 1807. He was in Boston and Charlestown, Mass., in 1819 
and 1820. For about twenty years he was presiding elder, and was 
chosen several times as a del^ate to the quadrennial sessions of the 
general conference of his church. From 1855 until 1870 he lived on 
his farm in Windham, N. H., and after that, until his death, resided 
in Salemii N. H. He was a man of robust frame, and was noted for 
his powers of endurance; a thorou^ student in theology and Biblical 
literature, and beloved for his Chnstian excellence, cordial manners, 
quiet humor, and warm affections. He was one of the founders of 
Wesleyan University, Middletown, Conn., and for a long period was 
a member of its Board of Trustees. He was also a trustee of the 
seminary in Newbury, Vt. He married, in December 1812, Ludnda 
Freeman, who was bom 23 December 1793 and died in Cincinnatii 

1916] Albert Harrison Hoyt 5 

Ohio, 19 July 1883, daughter of Thomas, Jr., and Rebecca (Swift) of 
BaiDard, Vt. Thomas Freeman was a descendant of Edmimd Free- 
man, who came to Saugus, Mass., in 1635, and removed to Sand- 
wich, a man of large family and a prominent citizen of the Plymouth 
Colony. Rebecca Swift belonged to the Swift family of Rochester, 

Ck>lonel Hoyt had four brothers and three sisters. Of these, 
Benjamin Thomas Hoyt, the third child and second son of his parents, 
was bom in Boston 18 October 1820, and died at Greencastle, Ind., 
24 May 1867. After graduating at Wesleyan University in 1846 he 
taught in the high schools at Middletown, Conn., 1846-1849, and 
Chelsea, Mass., 1849-1852. He was principal of the Lawrenceburg 
(Ind.) Institute, 1852-1856, president of the Indiana Femfde College 
at Indianapolis, 1856-1858, professor of Latin in Asbury University 
(now De Pauw University), Greencastle, 1858-1863, and professor of 
Bdles Lettres in the same institution from 1863 until his death from 
overwork in 1867. He was a model teacher and professor, and was 
active in the promotion of education and in the improvement of the 
common school system of Indiana, making public addresses for this 
purpose. He was equally prominent in the church and as superin- 
tendent of the Sunday school. He married, 23 August 1853, Emeline 
Lewis of Boston, who died 25 June 1893. Another brother of Colond 
Hoyt was Rev. Francis Southack Hoyt, the fourth child and third 
son of his parents, who was bom in Lyndon, Vt., 5 November 1822. 
Graduating at Wesleyan University in 1844, he devoted his life to 
teaching. For about a year he kept a select school at Norwich, 
Conn. Later he was principal of the Springfield (Vt.) Academy and 
of the Newbury (Vt.) Seminary, and in 1848 became connected with 
the Institute at Newark, N. J. In 1850, under appointment from 
the Methodist Episcopal Church, he removed to Oregon,^ where he 
was principal of the Salem Seminary (later incorporated as a college) 
until 1861. Then he accepted the Chrisman Professorship of Biblical 
Theology and Literature in the Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, 

Albert Harrison Hoyt studied at the Newbury (Vt.) Seminary and, 
entering Wesleyan University, received the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts from that institution in 1850, and the degree of Master of Arts 
in 1854. The honorary degree of Master of Arts was conferred on 
him by Dartmouth CoUege in 1878. His college fraternity was the 
Ptoi Upsilon. He began the study of law in Portsmouth, N. H., in 
1852, and was admitted to the New Hampshire bar in 1856. In- 
terested in the public school system, he was appointed by Gov. Noah 
Martin of New Hampshire school commissioner for Rockingham 
County, 1852-53, and he was clerk of the courts for the same county, 
185^1856. In 1857 the United States Secretary of the Interior 
appointed him pension agent at Portsmouth. From 1857 to 1862 he 
practbed his profession, holding the office of city solicitor of Ports- 
mouth from 1857 to 1859. 

During the Civil War, by nomination of President Lincoln, he 
served as paymaster in the United States Army from 1862 until his 
discharge on 20 July 1866. He ranked as major, and was on the 

6 Albert Harrison Hcyt [Jan. 

General Staff of the Army by appointment of the President. In 
November 1865 he was brevetted a lieutenant-colonel of Volunteers, 
United States Army, for ''faithful and meritorious service/' and was 
placed in charge of the final payments to discharged New England 
raiments. His disbursements in the field and in hospitals were 
mfllions of dollars; and when his accounts were settled in 1872 the 
Treasmrer of the United States sent to him a check for $6.60 as his 
due. He was a very popular payinaster on account of his sympathy 
for the soldiers and his laborious aid in arranging their pay rolls and 
in providing for their prompt payment. One incident in his service 
as paymaster is well worth relating here. 

The Twelfth Connecticut R^nent, imder command of Col. 
Henry C. Deming of Hartford, the orator, was stationed in Louisiana 
and had not been paid for a long time, the families of some of the 
soldiers being in pressing need. At Colonel Hoyt's request the regi- 
ment was assigned to him. Learning one evening that this raiment 
was to stop over night at Brashear City, he applied to the chief 
quartermaster for transportation over the New Orleans and Ope- 
lousas Railroad. A special train was obtained for this city, some 
eighty miles from New Orleans. On reaching Lafourche, some fifty- 
two miles from the starting point, the train was stopped, as the l»idge 
over the bayou had been burned a short time previously by the Con- 
federates. As no reply was made to a tel^pram to Brashear City for 
a train, Colonel Hoyt arrange for a flatboat and hand car. After 
crossing the stream the car was carried up a steep, high bank to the 
railroad track, and on it was placed the black-walnut chest containing 
$75,000. When the hand car had traversed about half of the re- 
maining distance, it came into such violent collision with a flat car 
that the latter passed completely over the hand car and injured one 
man. The Government cash box was broken into several pieces and 
the money was scattered on the track. After it had been gathered 
up, the car proceeded to its destination, and the next morning more 
than $60,000 was paid to the soldiers, the accounts of the paymaster, 
when balanced, being only fifty cents short. 

From 1866 to 1877 Colonel Hoyt resided in Boston, holding during 
the years 1867-1869 the position of chief treasurer of the National 
Railroad Transportation Company of Boston and devoting much 
time to studies in the field of literature and to the editing of biogra- 
phies. On 1 August 1866 he was elected a resident member of the 
New Eln^Uuid Historic Genealogical Society, and on 30 September 
1868 became a life member. At the time of his death he was fourth 
(m the list of the oldest active members of the Society. He was a 
member of the Board of Directors of the Society during the years 
1869-1889, a member of the Committee on PubUcations for the 
years 1868-1877 and 188&-1890, and Editor of the New England 
HiBTOBiCAL AND GENEALOGICAL REGISTER for the ycars 1868-1875. 
He also edited a portion of the third volume and the entire fourth 
volume of the ''Memorial Biographies" published by the Society. 
During the years 1868-1874 he was a member of the Register Club, 
an association formed to guarantee the continuance of the publication 
of the Register. He was always active and alert in promoting the 

1916] Albert Harrison Hoyt 7 

welfare of the Sodety, with pen and voice doing all that he could in 
its behalf and seeking by every means in his power to increase its 
membership and influence. He was a generous contributor to the 
Library of the Society, in 1913 giving 51 volumes, 720 pamphlets, 
and 5 miscellaneous articles relating to American biography, gene- 
alogy, and history. In the counsels of the Society he was a safe 
adviser, as he possessed excellent business judgment. 

In^ 1877 Colonel Hoyt accepted the professorship of History and 
Engliflh Literature in the Bartholomew Fingliah and Classical School 
(founded by his brother-in-law, George K. Bartholomew, who had 
married, 23 May 1864, his sister, Ellen Josephine) at Cincinnati, 
Ohio, where he remained untQ 1882, when he returned to Boston. 
On 7 September 1887 he joined the clerical force of the United States 
Subtreasury in Boston, retaining his connection with this office until 
his death. 

Li addition to his membership in the New England EQstoric 
Genealogical Society, Colonel Hoyt accepted resident member^p 
in the American Antiquarian Society (1875) and in the American 
Phflological Association (1875), corporate membership in the His- 
torical and Philosophical Society of OMo (1877), which was changed 
later (1882) into corresponding membership, and honorary member- 
8hq> in the New Hampshire Historical Society (1867), in the Nashua 
(N. H.) Historical Society (1874), and in the New Hampshire Anti- 
quarian Society (1877). He was made also a corresponding member 
of the New Orleans Academy of Sciences (1869), the Western Reserve 
Historical Society (1870), the New York Genealogical and Biographi- 
cal Society (1870), the Historical Society of Delaware (1873), the 
Rhode Island Historical Society (1873), the Maine Historical Society 
(1874), the Virgim'a Historical Society (1875), the Maryland His- 
torical Society (1875), the Maine Genealogical and Biographical 
Society (1876), and the State Historical Society of Wisconsin (1877). 
He became a member of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in 
1873, the Literary Club of Cincinnati in 1877, the Webster Historical 
Society in 1883, and the National Geographic Society in 1912. He 
belonged also to the Fraternity of Masons. 

Colonel Hoyt was fond of the Bible, Shakspere, and the best of 
classic and English Uterature, and he was a fluent and ready writer. 
Among his compilations worthy of note are ''A Sketch of the Life of 
Hon. Joshua Henshaw, with Brief Notices of Other Members of the 
Henshaw Family,"* "Necrology of New England Colleges for the 
Academic Year ending in 1868," a memoir entitled "William Plumer,

Historical and Bibliographical, on the Laws of New Hampshire," 
Worcester, 1876, "The Name 'Columbia,' "t and "Letters of Sir 
William Pepperell, Bart." He also edited, with notes, "Extracts 
from the Journal of Capt. Francis Goelet, Merchant, relating to 
Boston, Salem, Marblehead, etc.," and "Capt. Francis Champer- 
nowne, the Dutch Conquest of Acadie, and Other Historical Papers, 
by Charles Wesley Tuttle, Esq., Ph.D.," Boston, 1889. He was a 
contributor to the Western Christian Advocate, and addressed some 
of his relatives with letters written in the Latin, Greek, French, 
Italian, and Spanish languages. 

He claimed to be entirely free from the ties of political party, and 
supported only such candidates as he deemed most fitted for political 
honors. In Ins religious views he was very strict. He was a com- 
municant of St. Paul's Church (now St. Paul's Cathedral), Boston, 
and a charter member of the Episcopalian Club of Boston. 

He married, 28 June 1860, Sarah Frances Green of Elizabeth, N. J., 
a most estimable companion, who died in Boston 15 June 1893. 
Their only child, Francis Warburton Hoyt, was bom in Portsmouth, 
N. H., 8 September 1861, and died 31 March 1862. 

By reason of his height and straight, commanding figure, coupled 
with a sharp, piercing eye that sou^t the truth. Colonel Hoyt was 
a marked personality. If he had devoted himself to the law, he 
would have been a fine examiner of witnesses, a great advocate, and 
a safe judge on the bench. His ideals for life were the best; and with 
his kindly sympathetic nature he was the true friend of man, bird, 
and beast. He loved nature, and loved to be with it in its various 
forms of life. 

His death was sudden; for, after performing his customary duties 
at the Subtreasury, he made a call in the evening in Cambridge. Chi 
his way to his home he was attacked with heart failure and removed 
to the Boston City Hospital, where he died in about fifteen minutes. 
The funertj services were held in St. Paul's Cathedral, Boston, on the 
morning of 15 June 1915, the Rev. Edmund Swett Rousmaniere, D.D., 
Dean of the Cathedral, and the Rev. Arthur Wentworth Hamilton 
Elaton, D.C.L., being the oflSciating cler©rmen. The casket was 
draped with the American flag, and the services, attended by Colonel 
Hoyt's associates and friends, were dignified and simple, as he would 
have desired them to be. The interment was in the family lot at 
Portsmouth, N. H. 

Of Colond Hoyt one has said, in the words of Pope : 

"... yet friend to truthi Of soul sincere, 
In action faithful, and in honour clear; 
Who broke no promise, serv'd no private end, 
Who gain'd no title, and who lost no friend.''

only the verses which are appended to some of the inscriptions being 
(Hnitted. In the Rboistbb of October 1894 (vol. 48, pp. 442-443) 
the essential facts contained in 62 inscriptions in this burial ground 
were printed from a manuscript prepared in 1871 by the late Gen. 
Guy Mannering Fessenden of Warren, R.I., and presented by him 
to the New England Historic Genealogical Society; but in Gen. 
Fessenden's list the deceased is described as ''a. 30," or ''a. 75," as 
the case may be, although, as appears from the inscriptions printed 
below, the record on the stone may have stated that the deceased 
was in the 30th or in the 75th year of his age. The list made in 1871 
has been helpful in supplying a few words and figures that have 
disappeared or have become illegible since that time; and attention 
has been called in footnotes to other discrepancies between the two 
lists. Six inscriptions, foimd in the list of 1871, do not appear at aU 
in the verbatim copy given below, and probably they have been lost

1916] Jarne^ Junius Qoodvnn 51 


By Rev. Samubl Habt, D.D., of Middletown, Conn. 

James Jxtnius Goodwin, a life member of the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society since 1884, for several years a member 
of its Committee on English Research, and Vice-President of the 
Society from Connecticut for the years 1902-1915, died at his home 
in Hartford, Conn., 23 Jmie 1915, in the eightieth year of his age. 

His descent was through James,* James,* Jonathan,* Ozias,* and 
Nathaniel* from Ozias^ Goodwin, the head of the Connecticut family 
of that name and younger brother of William Goodwin, one of the 
company which in 1635 removed from Newtown in Massachusetts 
(now Cambridge) to Newtown in Connecticut (now Hartford), ruling 
elder of the church in Hartford, and one of the settlers of Hadley in 
1659. The first mention which we have of Ozias Goodwin is as an 
inhabitant of Hartford in 1639, granted two parcels of land ''by the 
town's courtesie." He died in 1683, at the age of 87. His descend- 
ants, in the line of the subject of this sketch, to use the words of one 
who knew their history well, "have been prominent and useful 
citizens of Hartford, quiet and conservative, holding firmly to their 
own convictions, thnfty, home-loving, and public-spirited.'^ James,* 
the grandfather of James Junius, was captain of the First Company 
qA the Governor's Foot Guard, and James,* his father, was major of 
the First Company of the Governor's Horse Guard, while a brother 
Jonathan was major in the Foot Guard. Maj. Jameel* Goodwin, 
before he became of age, was entrusted with the general manage- 
ment of the stage lines running to the east of Hartford, which pres- 
ently employed forty coaches and over four hundred horses, with a 
system of fast expresses for the transmission of important news. 
This business he relinquished when the Hartford and New Haven 
Railroad, of which he was a director, came into successful operation. 
Later he was one of the original corporators of the Connecticut 
Mutual Life Insurance Company, a director, and its president for 
twenty-seven years. His business career was one of great courage, 
energy, and firmness, united with equal wisdom and caution; and 
his character was marked by perfect integrity and constant useful- 
ness to the community. Major Goodwin's wife was Lucy Morgan, 
daughter of Joseph and Sally (Spencer) Morgan of West Sprin^eld 
(now Holyoke), Mass., and sister of Junius Spencer Mor^m, who 
became illustrious in the world of finance. Her home was in Hart- 
ford from 1817 until her death in 1890. She was a woman whose 
character had wonderful beauty and strength, helpful in every good 
work, and of deep conviction in her religious faith, guiding the com- 
munity by sweet influences and acts of benevolence. 

Their oldest son, James Junius Goodwin, was bom in Hartford 16 
September 1835. His childhood and youth were passed in his native 
dty, his education being for a time in private schools, and later in 
the Hartford High School, which he attended from its opening in 
1847 until December 1851. For a few years following he was em- 
ployed in a number of clerical positions, and in 1857 he went abroad

and records of Christ Church, and it was due to his genoosity in 
beaiing the eipenap of puUicaticm that the extremdy valuaUe and 
handsome Tolumes in which the history of the paivh is traced in 
the form of annals and its register reproduced to the end of the year 
1900, by Dr. Gurdon W. Russell, were inrinted and distributed. He 
rendered a like, and eren a greater, service to the town and the com* 
munity in providing for the transcripti<m, editing, and publication 
of the first volume of '' Hartford Town Votes, 163&-1716,'' as volume 
6 of the CoUeetions of the Connecticut Historical SociHy^ and also of 
the ''Original Distribution of Lands in Hartford among the Set- 
tlers, 1639," with later transfers and with ''Early Hartford Mtal 
Records," as volume 14 of the same series — this latter a volume of 
632 pages text and 84 pages index; the two making an almost ii>> 
valuable contribution to the material available for the study of 
ColcHual history, and that of a kind which required and rec^ved in 
its preparation the greatest possible pains to secure absolute accu- 
racy. His gifts to this society were many and wdl chos^i, the 
most notable being the monumental "Victoria History of the Coun- 
ties of Eki^and." 

He rendered like service to the New Eln^and Historic Genealog- 
ical Society. When, (m the death of Cdond Chests, it seemed 
very desirable that ^Ir. Henry FitzGilbert Waters should be induced 
to take up his residence in En^and and devote his time to genealogical 
research^ for the English pedigrees of American families, Mr. 
Goodwin was the larg^ personal contributor to the fund, and he 
continued his gifts for this purpose through a period of seventeen 
years; he was also a contributor to the Society^s building fund. 
Among the results of Mr. Waters's work, as is well known, were the 
discov^y of the parentage and provenance of John Harvard, the 
determination of certain questions in regard to the ancestry of 
George Washington, and the material for two large volumes of ab- 
stracts of wills and genealogical notes relating to the English origin 
of early American settlers. 

Part of Mr. Waters's investigations assisted Mr. Goodwin in carry- 
ing out his plan of providing for a thorough study of his own ancestry 
in all its backward-extended ramifications. In 1891 Mr. Goodwin 
put through the press a large volume on "The Goodwins of Hart- 
ford, Connecticut, Descendants of William and Ozias Goodwin," 
to which were prefixed a paper on "The Goodwins of East Anglia" 
by Rev. Augustus Jessopp, D.D., and a " Report on English Inves- 
tigations" by Henry F. Waters, A. M., together with a paper on 
"William Goodwin" (the Elder) by Rev. George Leon Walker, 
D.D., and one on "Ozias Goodwin" by Charles J. Hoadly, LL.D. 
The genealogical work was the compilation of Frank Famsworth 
Starr, to whom all later volumes and fascicules published by Mr. 
Goodwin are indebted for thorough and precise investigation, study, 
and arrangement. In 1896 was printed "The Roberts Family of 
Simsbury, Connecticut, in the Line of Captain Lemuel Roberts, 
1742-1780," Eunice Roberts his dau^ter being the wife of James* 
Goodwin; in the same year "The Williamson and Cobb Families, 
in the Lmes of Caleb and Mary (Cobb) W^illiamson of Barnstable, 

54 James Junius Goodwin [Jan. 

Mass., and Eb.rtford, Conn./' these being the parents of Martha 
Williamson who married Ozias' Goodwin; also "The Thomas 
Spencer Family of Hartford, Connecticut, in the Line of Samuel 
Spencer of Cromwell, Connecticut, 1744-1818," Samuel Spencer 
b^g the father of Sally Spencer who married Joseph Morgan 
and was the mother of Lucy wife of James* Goodwin. In 1898 was 
printed "The Newberry Family of Windsor, Connecticut, in the Line 
of Clarinda (Newbeny) Goodwin of Hartford, Connecticut, 1634- 
1866," the said Clarinda Newberry being the wife of Jonathan, 
brother of James^ Goodwin. In 1899 appeared "The Olcott Family 
of Hartford, Connecticut, in the Line of Eunice (Olcott) Goodwin, 
1639-1807," Eunice Olcott being the wife of Jonathan* Goodwin. 
In 1903 there followed "The Eells Family of Dorchester, Massachu- 
setts, in the Line of Nathaniel Eells of Middletown, Connecticut, 
1633-1821," Martha Eells being the wife of Samuel Spencer above 
mentioned and grandmother of Lucy Morg^ wife of Jamed* Good- 
win; and in 19C^ "The Miles Morgan Faimly of Springfield, Massa- 
chusetts, in the Line of Joseph Morgan of Hartford, Connecticut, 
1780-1847," this being the Joseph Morgan who married Sally Spen- 
cer, the fourth in descent from Miles Morgan who was a resident 
of Springfield in 1644. There was also a volume (dated 1895) de- 
voted to the genealogy of the Edward Jackson family of Newton, 
Mass., a member of which is the wife of Mr. Goodwin's brother, 
the Rev. Dr. Francis Goodwin. And but a short time before 
Mr. Goodwin's death two volumes were printed under the title of 
"Various Ancestral Lines of James Goodwin and Lucy (Morgan) 
Goodwin of Hartford, Connecticut," one of 319 pages containing 
twenty-four Goodwin lines, the other of 481 pages containing twenty- 
nine Morgan lines. Of all these Mr. Stan* was the compiler, bis 
compilation resting on the most painstaking investigation; and it 
may well be doubted whether any one has undertaken and done for 
all the lines of his ancestry more than has here been done by Mr. 
James Junius Goodwin. With these belongs "The First Roister 
of Saint Mary's Church, Bocking, Essex, England. Baptisms, 1561- 
1605; Marriages, 1593-1639; Burials, 1558-1628. Transcribed from 
the original for and privately printed [in an edition of 50 copies] 
by James Junius Goodwin," 1903. 

Mr. Groodwin had, as witnessed by the press at the time of his 
death, "an enlightened interest in many subjects and a desire to 
facilitate their study by others; largely absorbed in business, he 
found time for study on his own account, and provided facilities for 
more minute study by special students." It may well be added, in 
words which the present writer used at the time, that Hartford is 
indebted for much of its attractive beauty to him and to those who 
have stood in close relation to him; and the prosperity of its literary 
institutions is largely due to their timely and generous gifts. There 
were no public legacies in his will; but in accordance with his ex- 
pressed wish and from a fund which he set aside for the purpose, 
substantial gifts have already been made to Christ Church, the 
Wadsworth Atheneum, the Connecticut Historical Society, Trinity 
College, Berkeley Divinity School, and other institutions.

Mr. Goodwin married, 19 June 1873, Josephine Sarah Lippincott 
of Philadelphia, a descendant of one of the early settlers of Massa- 
chusetts who was later a patentee of the first English settlement in 
New Jersey. She survives her husband, with three sons, Walter 
Lippincott, James Lippincott, and Philip Lippincott; another son 
died in infancy.

En^iflh Research 

[Continued from vol. 69, page 369] 

Since the publication, in the Rboisteb of Jiily 1913 and of Janiiary 1914,* 
of articles on the En^h ancestry of Eltweed Pomeroy, the immigrant 
ancestor of the Pomeroy family in New England, the condnsions reached in 
those articles have been questioned in various printed statements. There- 
fore the Conmiittee on En^h Research wishes to inform the readers of the 
BxGiSTER that in these prmted statements no evidence has been presented 
that affects in the slightest degree the correctness of the conclusions given in 
the Rbgisteb. namely, (1) that Richard Pomeroy of the armigerous family 
of Pomeroy of Berry-Pomeroy, co. Devon, who has been claimed as identi- 
cal with lUchard Pomerpy of Beaminster, co. Dorset, the father of Eltweed 
P(xneroy, died without issue; and (2) that the parentage of Richard Pome- 
roy^ father of Eltweed, has not yet been foimd. » 

The Conmiittee wishes also to repeat the statement that the illustration 
facing page 47 of the Register of January 1914 was presented as a true 
copy of Harleian MS. 1091, fo. 109, darso. It was not represented to be a 
correct pedigree of the Pomeroy faniily.

To his Excellency the Govemour and Councill, and Representatives, now 
in Generfldl Court Assembled : at Boston 

The Petition of severall of the Inhabitants of Andover, Salem village & 
Tomfield, humbly sheweth; 

That whereas in the year 1692 some of your Petitioners and the near 
Relations of others of them, viz. Rebecca Nurse, Mary Estey, Abigail Faulk- 
ner, Mary Parker of Andover, John Procter & Elizabeth his wife: Elizabeth 
How, Samuel Wardwell & Sarah his wife; were accused of witchcraft by 
certain possessed persons, and thereupon were apprehended and Imprisoned, 
and at a Court held at Salem were condemned upon the evidence of the 
aforesaid possessed i)ersons; and sentence of Death hath been executed on 
them (except Abigail Faulkner, Elizabeth Procter & Sarah Wardwell) of 
whose Innocency those that knew them are well satisfyed. And whereas the 
invalidity of the aforesaid Evidence and the great wrong which (through 
errors & mistakes in those tryalls) was then done, hath since plainly appeard, 
which we doubt not but this Honored Court is sensible of: 

Your Petitioners being dissatisfyed and grieved that (besides what the 
aforesaid condemned persons have suffered in their persons and Estates) 
their Names are exposed to Infamy and reproach, while their TryaU & con- 
demnation stands upon Publick Record.* 

We therefore humbly Pray this Honored Court, that something mav be 
PubUckly done to take off Infamy from the Names and memory of those 
who have suffered as aforesaid, that none of their surviving Relations, nor 
their Posterity may suffer reproach upon that account. And yo' Petition's 
shall ever pray &c.

Communicated by Alwbmd Johmbon, litt. D., of Brookline, Mi 

John Davidson^ the writer of the following narrative, was a son 
of John Davidson of Windham, N. H., who, as one of the original 
proprietors of Belfast, Me., drew lot No. 10 on the eastern side of 
Belfast Bay, in what is now the town of Searsport. The elder 
Davidson (Ud not go to Belfast, but was represented by his son John, 
who arrived with the first settlers in 1770, being then only nineteen 
years old. Young John Davidson built a log house there and re- 
mained nine years. During the Revolution he left Belfast and 
returned to Windham, which was his home until he reached extreme 
old age. In 1794 his First Division lot in Belfast was conveyed to 
Job Young for £100, and the next year the remainder of his share 
was conveyed to John Cochran for a like sum. In 1829, after the 
death of his wife, Davidson went to live with his son William at 
Lowell, Mass., and there he died 25 Oct. 1835, aged eighty-five years. 
His son Henry, who died at Belfast 26 Jan. 1864, was the only one 
of his children who settled in Maine. 

Davidson's narrative was written in 1832, after he had completed 
his eighty-second year. The original manuscript is now in the 
possession of descendants residing in Belfast, and has been copied for 
the Register by the Misses Aimie L. Ban* and Grace Hall, of the 
Belfast Free Library. This narrative was used in compiling the 
genealogy of the Davidson family published in Morrison's "History 
of Windham in New Hampshire;" and a few extracts from it, with 
corrected spelling, may be found in Williamson's "History of Bel- 
fast," vol. 1. llie manuscript is here reproduced verbatim, except 
for the omission of a few repetitions and of some of the less important

80 much as we experenced them and in continumg my life and faculties to 
this great age together with some account of my ancesters according to the 
best of my recollection I not having kept any Joumel & this is written witii 
my owne hand on this 25 of may in the year 1832 in the 83 year of my age 

I was bom in tewdcsbury Mass. on a farm now owned or occupyed by 
Mr. Eezadick Rogers S^ farm known by it being calded Bowlands farm, 
march 16th 1750* my ancestors on both My Father & Mothers Side were 
both from Scotland were By profession what was then Protestants they 
embearked to the north of Irieland a place in those da3n3 nearly distitute Ctf 
inhabitents, very remote from the natives of ireland And after they b^|;an 
to call them Irish, and from that they call us Scothirish, so we are cauled so 
to this Day, in that place Called Mennemoref my Father was born, August 

And in 1728 his Father and Mother Brothers and Sisters and others 
embarked for Amaerica, in consequence chiefly of the following alarming 
circumstence viz. my Greatgrand Father took a Little boy by the name o? 
M^ graw who lived with them untill he became a man, then he left them 
af[t]er some time he returned accompined by another man, on a pretended 
visit of friendship knowing that money was in the house and all were Ex- 
pected to be abcsent through the ni^ht except those Affed couple they from 
pretended kindness ofered to Lodge m the house with mem to protect them 
but in the Stillness of midnight when those agidd innocent, Unsuspecting 
paUons — in the Silent repose without the least thought of danger these 
villins arose [2] And with an axe put an end to their existence took the money 
and what th^ pleased, after pilliging the house Set it on fire And left tlie 
dbtce — but justice slmnbered not in the case Of one — when my Grand 
Father returned the next day Saw his house in ashes and his a^d parents 
bones, and McGraw and his friend had absconded, immediate Search was 
made, and McGraw was found — and blood was on His clothes, he confessed 
the whole affair and his Sentence in A court of justice was immediately 
pasB^. and he was publicly jibited the other was not found as I ever heard, 
as apears the murderers and them sort are or were a revangfull popele and 
my grand father thought it to be too much of a risque to continue there for 
fear of there revenge, he and the family and other reaUtives removed to 
north america State of massachusetts the town of woboum. 

my Father was then a boy about 8 years old and he was put to Capt 
Timothy Brooks and he continued with him till he was 21 and he after that 
he worked about with one and another till about 25 and then marred Sarah 
Nuttjt and his Father Uncle George and himself remooved into Tukesbury 
and lived there 8 years and my parents had two Daughters and two son bom 
<m a farm known by it beinff called Boland farm, the names of us children

all Died there in windham 

i John lived with my parents till I was 20 years 2 months 4 days old in 
which time I receieved good instmction from them they exhorted me to 
secret prayer and a good many admonitions and instructions which I en- 
deaveoured in some good measiu^ to perform, when I was about 8 or 9 years

great reason to return thanks to ahnighty 13] God for his goodness to me 

when I was about 20 years old my Father preposed to purchise a lot right 
of land in the The Township of Belfast and preposed to give it me if I would 
go and Settle on it I excepted his offer My father hv^ on the farm now 
occupyed by my brother William in Windham N. H. untiU the 29 of sept. 
1799 when he (tied, and while he lived there he had five children viz. Mary. 
William. Jesse. William and Betesy, five of their Children are now living viz 
John, James, Mary, William and Betsy. 

On tiie 20 Day of may 1770 1 arived at Belfast raw anough and unaquainted 
with any one at Belfast but John Tuffts, 'tho John Morrison had a lot of 
land that lay along side my land and he and I built a camp betweext us, and 
lived together one summer or season, Dear I was unaquainted mtk the 
nature of mankind, tho I had something of an opertunity to be acquainted 
with what wes on board the vessel while we ware on our passage to Belfast 
^^ch was about 30 men women & children bound to Belfast and penobscut 
River the most that belonged to Belfast went ashore before Monson and I 
Did, for there land lay w^terly of ours and a little while after two of the 
shipes himds took Morrisons and my efects into the boat and brought us 
round Moose Point to the south end of our lots of land. Sun then being but 
one hour and half high at night, you may judge what a situation we must be 
in the roaring seas on the one hand, and the howling wilderness on the other, 
and our steers hurried from the boat and those 2 men that brou^^t us there 
as soon as our efects was out of the boat they left us, and as the tide was far 
out and it a coming in we had to stur our Selves ouick so as to have our 
stoars out of the tides way as it apeared likly it would in a short time move 
them, but it would be much to our cost, so before Dark we had them secuoer 
from the tide, when this was performed the next I thought of as it was 
growing toward Dark i was going to strike fire — said Morrison we will not 
stay hear for the indians would kill us before morning he said he ment to see 
Matthew Reed before he slept and away he went 4 miles, and I stoped over 
night with Mr. John Bamet in going 2 miles [4] And staled with him that 
night, next morning we returned To our stoers found them safe, we at- 
tempitjed to, and put up the walls of a camp that Day, the next put on the 
roof covered it wiUi spruce Bark so as to be tollerable comfortable, then we 
began to dear about tne camp, and we began to make the opening larger my 
most Perticular work was to cut cordwood and clear the land, as I Had no 
oxen I had to exchange my work for ox work and I got about 50 cords to 
th[e] [lanlding a pretty large todd* for a vessel the place was new and coasters 
unaquainted wi& the harbour And I could find no market for my wood tfll 
it was spoild And I had to set fire to it. for that was the easiest way I could 
Moov it out of the way out from the landing so as to leave thet for Green 
wood, tiiio it semed a great loss, perhaps as much as 25 Dollors or more, 
(the next season 1771 1 sowed 2 bushells of winter Rie and I had betwixt 30 
and 40 busheUs,) 

in the month of October 1770 1 returned to my Fathers house in windham 
and he had agreed to have me to go and work the insueing winter with Mr 
John Bamett at shoework as I had worked at that work before he thou^t 
the tread would be some benif et to me some time and so It has in my f anmiSy . 

In t^e spring of 1771 1 returned to Belfast and resumed my works of cutting 
ooidwood And clearing and prepared two acres of ground on which in the faS 
I sowed the rie before mentioned 

In January in 1772 I left Belfast for my Fathers house by water in a very 
poor miserebele leekey vessell and a cearless commander if he had i^enty of

Rum in the vessel it was all the stoers he wished to provide, the chiefe of the 
stoaiB that were on boiurt for ten to live on for ten Days was what we that 
were pasengers took on board as our owne Stoers and toward the last of our 
F&asa^ I think we eat the last of any thing we had on board without we 
had killed a dog and we threatned his life we had no releidF with provision 
till all most sundown the ninth Day when as good luck would have it we were 
Driven within wood Island 

we east anker the next was who will go a Shore, the next was the enquirey, 
not who will go ashore but who has money to pay for some food I no not 
there was one cent on board but what I had in my pocket that was litUe [5] 
80 We our capt and my Self Set out to go ashore in a little punt we had to go 
with paddles about three milds before we could reach the shore there was one 
house there and but one the first the Capt Called for was a mug of flip to put in 
to our empty stomachs all the provesions we could obtain there was one Diy 
fish and half a bushell of frosted bitten spenish Potatoes and having carried 
them to our pimt or boat we attemped to gain or reach the vessel but a sudden 
squell came up and we afeared we should be blown of to sea, we Dear not go, 
we returned to the house and waited and as soon as it began to break away 
we attempted to go on board wth our small pittence of stores to releive the 
Suffering of ourselves and those we left on board but now this wind was so 
heigh tlmt we could not have Stopt when we came to the vessel but the men 
from on board hove the end of a rope and the wind being high we had hke to 
have filled oiu* punt before we could have come on board the vessel, the men 
and rope apeared to be the means of preventing us from going to sea, by this 
time the weather being so sovear our potatoes had another touch of the frost 
tho we boiled sume of them, they and fish were very good. 

next day morning we hpve up and come to sale and ventered to sea and 
before Dark we were Driven within kittory point near to Portmoutii there 
we let run our anker and I went a shear and bought some meat and br^Eul 
and after Refreshing our Selves we brought the vessell into the Dock to a 
worf, tiien I had Done with her without it was to go and see her. She was 
about as full of water as time and tide could fill her, when I come next Day 
morning to see her sunk to the bottom as a stone. how the goodness of 
God is to be seen that he Did not withdraw his Protecting arm a few Days 
sooner, when we were in the vessel at sea, it is wholy of the goodness of the 
almighty god, that he Did Suffer any of us to be preveved to the l^id. All 
the time we were at sea whather sick or well, cold or warm b^ Day or b^ 
night we must be Drewing water out of the hold of the vessel with a pump it 
apeared we at that time that we •had life and Deth Set before us [6] To be 
ld[)orious prooved to be the preservation of the Uves of all on Board that 
vessel, in about two Days after we eat the last of our provision we began to 
have that sharp hunger for food a little over, we were very, very, faint, and 
the longer the worse notwithstanding we must work or Sink, httle I knew 
what sort of a comander or a vessel I was going with or I never should have 
engaged with him 

when I came to Portsmouth I was a stranger and knew no one but Capt 
McFarland (of the vessel I came in) and I entrusted my very good blanket 
my Dear Mother took so much panes to make had it fulled in a fulling mill 
it was very larg that she made it so if I was out over night it would have been 
a good preservetive against the frost, but he is gone and the blanket likewise 
80 I have done with uiem both. 

after I left Portsmouth I had yes I had a teadious Joumy on my feet to 
my Fathers house at Windham not less then 50 milds as the snow was Deep 
and lij^t and very cold I was received as a very w[e]lcome guest

Granby rCoNN.) Cembtert Inscrutionb. — The following death records 
were copied oy me on 31 Aug. 1905 directly from the stones &en standing or 
lyinff upon the ground in the so-called Lee Cemetei% which is situated in the 
souuiem central part of the Sixth School District of North Granby, Conn., near 
the middle of the triangular tract of land bounded on the east by thelGranby- 
Granville turnpike, on the north and west by the road leading from tine Hiram 
Wflooz place to Uie Loveland place, and on the south by the Hartland road, 
leading from the Loveland place to the Leonard place, on the aforesaid Granby- 
Giranville turnpike. 

This cemet^ lies directly west of the old homestead formerly occupied in 
turn by tJie Lees, Wilcoxes, and Bissells, and has been neglected for many years; 
in fact, not only have the fences been neglected, but the grounds have been 
pastured, and trees allowed to grow to a sise whidi permitted cutting ties from 
the same. All this neglect and depredation have resulted in the turning over and 
breaking of many stones, and many of them have disappeared. 

As many of those whose names are found in this cemetery were men and women 
of affairs m their day, this record is made with the hope that their memory may 
not entirelv disappear and that our gratitude for what they were and whatfth^ 
did may aJoide,

HisTOBicAL Intelligence 

Hebaldrt. — The Conmiittee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society desires to call special attention to the recommendation in its 
report of 5 May 1914 (see Reqister, vol. 69, Supplement, pp. xvi-xxiii), ''that 
every person interested, bv reason of descent or otherwise, in making it a matter 
of record that any original settler in this country inherited a coat of arms or that 
any inhabitant of this country received a grant of arms be invited to offer the 
arms for record with this Society," etc. 

The Committee believes that the importance of the results possible to be 
attained by such registration will be of great interest; and they earnestly request 
all members of the Society and all oth^ pcarsons who have coats of arms which 
th^ believe to be eligible to make apphcation for recording them. The cost of 
painting the arms and making up the record will have to be defrayed by the ap- 
plicants, and the Committee has determined that $3.00 for each coat will barely 

This amoimt, b^ cheoue payable to the order of the Society, must be forwarded 
with the appUcation. if tne application is rejected, the money will be returned 
unless the apphcant wishes to have the arms recorded with those respited for proof. 
The Committee, however, reserves the right to reject anv appUcation altogether, 
and if this ri^t is exercised, the money will, of course, be returned. 

It seems evident that, besides the ^wth in value of tne collection as it increases 
in size, there will be manv other thmgs of extreme interest contributed with the 
arms and directly related thereto, such as photographs of castles, armor, seals, 
manors, etc., and provision is contemplated for filing such contributions in supple- 
mentary volumes in connection with the registers of the arms. Applications in 
which the proofs do not sufficiently conform to the requirements indicated in the 
report of tne Committee will be placed in a separate volume to await further 

Printed directions for the making of applications may be obtained from the 
Committee; and all communications on this subject should be addressed to the 
Committee on Heraldry, New England Historic Genealogical Society, 9 Ash- 
burton Place, Boston. 

History of Surry, N. H. — Frank B. Kingsbury of Proctor, Vt., is gathering 
material for a history of the town of Surry, N. H. Items of historical and gene- 
alogical interest relating to this town will be appreciated by him. 

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communici^ed, 
especiaUy service under the U. S. Government, the holdmg of other offices, grad*

APRIL, 1916 


By Nathanixl Cthbhino Nabh, Jr., A.B., LL3., of Cambridge, Mass. 

Nathaniel Citbhing Nash, a resident member of the New Eng- 
land Historic Genealogical Society since 1891 and its Treasurer for 
the three years 1904-1906, died at his home in Cambridge, Mass., 
after a long illness, 10 October 1915, at the age of fifty-t£*ee years. 
He was bom in Boston, Mass., 4 April 1862, the son of Nathaniel 
Gushing and Lucy Turner (Briggs) Nash. 

(te his father's side he was descended from Joseph^ Nash,* of Wey- 
mouth, Mass., who by his wife Elizabeth, probably a daughter of John 
Holbrook, was the father of Joseph,^ of Scituate, Mass., who was bom 
at Weymouth 8 June 1674 and died 23 May 1732, aged 58. By his 
wife Hannah, a daughter of John Gurtis, Joseph' Nash was the father 
of John,' also of Scituate, who was born 8 August 1703 and married 
Hannah Buck. Their son was Noah,* of Scituate, who was born 
23 January 1734/5 and died "in the army at Roxbury" in 1775, 
where he was serving as a private in Thomas's Massachusetts regi- 
ment. He married, 4 November 1756, Elizabeth Gudworth, who 
died in 1790. They were the parents of John* Nash, of Scituate, who 
was bom 29 May 1767 and married, about 1796, Deborah Gushing, 
who was bom at Scituate 31 December 1774 and died 23 April 1811, 
ag^ 37. Their son, Nathaniel Gushing^ Nash, the father of the 
subject of this memoir, was bom at Scituate 6 April 1804, and died at 
Arlington, Mass., 31 August 1880. He married, 31 May 1849, Lucy 
Tumer Briggs, who was bom at Scituate 23 Januanr 1830 and died 
14 April 1862, daughter of Henry and Betsey (Rug^es) Briggs. He 
was a successful merchant of Boston, of the firm of Nash, Spaulding 
and Gompany; and he was also a public-spirited citizen, interested 
in movement^ for promoting the welfare of the community and serv- 
ing as a member of the Gommon Gouncil of Boston in 1856, of the 
Board of Aldermen from 1864 to 1867, and of the State Legislature in 
1858, 1868, and 1869. He was elected a resident member of the New 
Ekigiand Historic Genealogical Society in 1870, became a life member 
in 1878, and is counted among the generous benefactors of this 
Society. An opponent of Slavery, he belonged to the Republican

of Weymouth, but evidence in support of this conjecture seems to be lacking.

party from the time of its organization. In religion be was a Uni- 

Through his great-grandmother, Elizabeth Cudworth, wife of 
Noah^ Nash, the subject of this memoir was descended from James^ 
Cudworth, of Scituate, who was prominent both m the military and 
in the civil affairs of the Plymouth Clolony, commanding the whole 
force of the Colony in the early part of King Philip's War, and being 
deputy, assistant, and deputy governor in that Colony, as well as 
agent in England for the New England Colonies and a commissioner 
of the United Colonies. Mr. Nash's grandmother, Deborah Cushing, 
wife of John^ Nash, was a daughter of Nathaniel and Alice (Cushm^ 
Cushing, of Scituate, Nathaniel Cushing being a drummer in the 
Revolution and serving as a Minuteman on 19 April 1775 and at the 
siege of Boston. 

Mr. Nash's maternal grandfather, Henry Briggs, bom at Scituate 
11 March 1789, was a son of Thomas Barker and Lucy (Otis) Briggs, 
of Scituate, and a grandson of James and Hannah (Barker) Brigg? 
of Scituate. This James Briggs served in the French and bidian War 
and in the Revolution, being, in the struggle for the independence of 
the Colonies, one of the Committee on Correspondence, Inspection, 
and Safety, and commanding, with the rank of ensign, the Fourth 
Cliff at Scituate. Lucy (Otis) Briggs, Mr. Nash's great-grand- 
mother, was a daughter of Dr. James and Lucy (Cushing) Otis, her 
father. Dr. James Otis, having served in the Fnench and Indian War 
and being in the Revolutionary War a member of the Scituate Com- 
mittee of Inspection and a smrgeon both on board the sloop of war 
Ranger and with the American forces at Ticonderoga. 

Mr. Nash was descended also from Col. John and Sarah (Hawke) 
Cushing, of Scituate, Col. John Cushing being a deputy and an 
assistant in the Plymouth Colony. He was also eighth in descent 
from John Alden, ninth from Elder William Brewster, eighth from 
Edward Doty, and ninth from Richard Warren, all of whom came to 
New England in the Mayflower in 1620. 

When Nathaniel Cushing Nash was about ten days old, his mother 
died, and a few years later his father removed from Boston to Arling- 
ton, Mass., where the son lived until after the death of his father in 
1880. He attended first David Mack's private school at Belmont, 
Mass., and later the school of George Washington Copp Noble in 
Boston, where he was prepared for Harvard. 

Mr. Nash's boyhood residence in Arlington gave him an excellent 
opportunity to enjoy many forms of outdoor recreation. Whenever 
his studies did not claim his attention, he spent much of his time in 
boating and fishing on the Mystic Lakes, close by his home, or in 
hunting in the surrounding woods and fields. So proficient did he 
become with the shotgun and rifle that in the glass-ball, clay-pigeon, 
and rifle matches, which were held from time to time by the old-time 
gunners of the locality, he was considered as unusually expert for one 
of his years. 

In the autumn of 1880, at the age of eighteen, he entered Harvard 
CoUege, where he devoted much of his time to the study of both ancient

1916J Nathaniel Cuahing Noah 101 

and modem languages, and where he was graduated in 1884 with the 
degree of Bachelor of Arts. The new friendships and associations 
formed during this period were a lasting somrce of pleasure through- 
out his life. They did not, however, in the slightest d^ree detract 
from that almost passionate love of Nature which formed the keynote 
of his life. 

For the next fifteen years he paid special attention to target shoot- 
ing with the rifle at the Walnut Hill Range of the Massachusetts Rifle 
Association, winning the highest medals offered in offhand competition 
and serving as president of the Association in 1891 and 1892. 

While still in college he took up yachting, and spent part of nearly 
every sunmier for about twenty years in cruising along the New 
England seacoast. He was a member of the New York, the Eastern, 
and other yacht clubs, and for several years held the office of commo- 
dore of the Corinthian Yacht Club at Marblehead. 

Having reached his majority while still in college, he found, upon 
graduation, that the care of his prop)erty occupied much of his atten- 
tion. As time went on, however, the systematization of his office 
routine gave him leisiu*e for study in the Graduate School of the 
University, and in 1892 he received the degree of Master of Arts for 
work in Greek history and cryptogamic botany. In this latter subject 
he was exceptionally interested, and throughout the remainder of his 
life served on various botanical committees of the University. The 
N. C. Nash Botanical Lecture Room was his gift to the University in 
memory of his father. 

Up to the age of thirty most of his hunting trips were in the pursuit 
of game birds, shore birds, and wild fowl in New England; but from 
that time on, and even while suffering from the first signs of his last 
illness, he made many hunting trips to Maine and New Brimswick for 
deer, bear, moose, and caribou. By those who accompanied him in 
the woods he was considered an exceedingly quick and acciu'ate shot 
at moving game. In 1911 he succeeded in securing a caribou whose 
antlers were heavier and bore more points than any ever killed in New 
Brunswick, to his knowledge. 

His love of hunting very naturally led him to a close study of the 
experiences of other hunters in many lands, and particularly in Africa, 
and in the course of his researches he gathered an excellent Ubrary of 
books dealing with African hunting and exploration. 

Fishing was another of his recreations. On many trips to Maine, 
New Bnmswick, Quebec, and Florida he caught trout, salmon, tarpon, 
amber jack, barracouta, and many other varieties ot game fish. He 
possessed an excellent collection of "The Compleat Angler" by Wal- 
ton and Cotton. His habit of careful and thoughtful ol^rvation and 
close application brought him not only great skill in achieving success 
in everything he undertook, from microscopic botany to big-game 
hunting, but also an enviable reputation as an authority in all matters 
in which he was especially interested. 

Much of his time was spent in analyzing economic and business 
conditions. His sound judgment along these lines was much sought 
by his friends and often highly commended. He was a director of the 
Cambridge Trust Company, practically without interruption, from

its foundation to his death, and for many years served as its presi- 

He was a Republican in politics; and although he did not always 
agree with party principles or the opinions of party leaders, neverthe- 
less he never changed his political iJle^ance. His religious affiliations 
were with the Unitarian Chiurch. 

In addition to his connection with the organisations already men- 
tioned, he was a thirtynsecond degree Mason, and a member of the 
Union and Algonquin Clubs, of the Oakley, Tedesco, and Belmont 
Spring Country Clubs, of the Boston City Club, of the Boston Athletic 
Association, of the Sons of the American Revolution, of the Society 
of Colonial Wars in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, of the 
Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants, of the Boston 
Society of Natural History, and of the American Museum of Natural 
History in New York. 

Mr. Nash married, 26 June 1884, Nellie Munro Fessenden of 
Arlington, daughter of Nehemiah and Mary E. (Fiske) Fesdenden, 
and granddau^ter of Philip Bemis and Rebecca (Tufts) Fessenden 
and of Jonas Stone and Pamelia (Brown) Fiske. Two children were 
bom of this marriage, of whom the elder, Nathaniel Cushing Nash, Jr., 
A.B. (Harvard, 1907), LL.B. (Harvard, 1911), is now practising law 
in Boston, while the younger, Edward Fessenden Nash, died in 1894.

1. JoHN^ Andrews, called Lieut. John Andrews or John Andrews, 
Sr., to distinguish him from Corporal John Andrews and two others 
of the same surname who lived at the same time at Ipswich, Mass., 
was born in England, it is supposed, about 1621,* and died at Chebacco 
Parish, in Ipswich, 20 Apr. 1708. The names of his parents have not 
been found.f He married Jane Jordan, daughter of Stephen of 
Ipswich, later of Newbury, Mass., who in his will dated 5 Apr. 1667 
mentions his daughter ^drews of Ipswich, his son John Andrews, 
and his grandchild Elizabeth Andrews.} Jane (Jordan) Andrews was 
living in 1705, when her husband made his will. 

It is not known when Lieut. John Andrews came to New England; 
but his name appears first in the records of Ipswich in 1637, when it 

* He deposed in 1701, aged 80. 

t Hon. Henry Franklin Andrews, now of Exira, Iowa, in his book entitled *' History 
of the Andrews Family," published in 1890, gave Lieut. John Andrews as a son of 
John and a grandson of Capt. Robert Andrews, the innkeeper of Ipswich; but sinoe 
the appearance of the book he has admitted that he was mistaken in this matter. (See 
Maine HiMorical and Oenealogical Recorder^ vol. 9, pp. 223-224, and his revised compila- 
tion, "Lieut. John Andrews of Chebacco, Mass.," published in 1909.) The compiler of this 
Article is indebted to Mr. Andrews for generous permission to make use of his valuable 
Andrews papers. 

X See Maine Historical and Oenealoffical Recorder, vol. 3, p. 190. 

1916] Deacendanta of John Andrews 103 

is stated that he was a soldier in the Pequot War. It has been 
thought that he may have been a nephew of Capt. Robert Andrews, 
master of the ship Angd Gabriel (wrecked off Pemaquid in 1635) and 
later an innkeeper at Ipswich, but no record is known that indicates 
this relationship. 

Lieut. John Andrews was a house carpenter and farmer, and lived 
in that part of Ipswich which in 1679 was organized as Chebacco 
Parish and in 1819 was incorporated as the town of Essex, Mass. 
His name is frequently found in the land and court records of Ips- 
wich, where he seems to have accmnulated considerable property 
and to have been a man of some distinction. He was honorably 
connected with that outbreak of independence which led the inhabi- 
tants of Ipswich in 1687 to resist the order of Sir Edmund Andros and 
his council for levying a tax on the King's subjects, viz., "a penny in 
the pound on all £^ates personal or real, twenty pence per' head as 
Poll Money," etc. (Andros Tracts, vol. 1, p. 81, published by the 
Prince Society.) John Andrews was at that time chairman of the 
selectmen of Ipswich, and John Appleton was town clerk. They, 
with John Wise, the minister, and others, called a meeting, at which 
the command of the Governor to choose a commissioner to assist in 
assessing the tax, was discussed; and at the town meeting the next 
day (23 Aug.) the town considered that by the laws of England it 
was enacted ''that no Taxes should be Levied upon the Subjects 
without consent of an Assembly chosen by the Freeholders." (76., 
p. 84.) For this act of the town Mr. Wise, John Andrews, John 
Appleton, William Goodhue, Robert Kinsman, and Thomas French 
were arrested, brought before the court at Boston, and tried; and 
''that they might be sure to be found guilty, Jurors were picked of 
such as were no Freeholders, nay of Strangers; the Prisoners pleading 
the privilege of Englishmen not to be taxed without their own consent, 
they were told that the Laws of England would not foUow them to the 
end of the Earthy ... for the penalties they resolved should follow 
them quo jure quaque injuria;^' that they had no right to claim the 
privileges of Englishmen, "when it had been declared in the Gover- 
nours Council, tiuU the Kings Subjects in New-Ekigkuid did not differ 
much from Slaves, and thai the only difference was, thai they were not 
boughi and sold. ... In as much as the Prisoners mentioned had 
asserted their English Liberties, they were severely handled, not 
only imprisoned for several weeks, but fined and bound to their good 
behavior." {lb., p. 82.) This act of resistance has been called 
"the foundation of American Democracy," and was the beginning 
of those events which eighty-eight years later culminated in the 
Revolutionary War. It is commemorated in the seal of the town of 
Ipswich, which bears the motto, "The Birthplace of American 
Independence 1687." During the unhappy days of the Witchcraft 
Delusion John Andrews and his fom: sons were among those who 
signed the petition to save John Proctor and his wife, who had lived 
at Chebacco and had been tried and convicted of witchcraft at Salem; 
and although they could not save the^ husband, they put them- 
selves on record as among the more tolerant of the people of New

and Mary (Lockwood) of Ipswich (Register, vol. 60, p. 250). 

On 8 Oct. 1703 Lieut. John Andrews of Ghebacco Parish, 
Ipswich, gave to his ''Eldest Sonne John Andrews, House 
Carpenter of ye same town," his homestead with 8 acres of 
land, conjGrming to him other pieces of land, subject to certain 
conditions. On 25 Oct. 1704 John Andrews, Jr., sold this 
homestead, given to him by his father, to John Wainwright 
of Ipswich, merchant, the deed being signed by John Andrews, 
Jr., and " Judah " Andrews affixing her mark. (Essex Deeds.)

1 The section in which this family settled east of the Shetucket River was originally 
a part of Norwich, but it was a long distance from the church on the town plot, and 
at a very eaiiy date the farmers in this section petitioned the General Assembly, 
begging to be released from the necessity of attending public worship in Norwich town 
and to be allowed to pay their rates for a minister of their own. Not until 1716 were 
the following resolutions passed: "Upon the application of the Blast Farmers in the 
town of Norwich, it is granted and resolved by this Assembly that said inhabitants 
shall be a society by themselves and have the privileges of a society or parish with 
respect to a minister and schools; the bounds whereof shall be as follows: On Preston

self, during his life, 20 acres, together with one half of his 
house. The deeds were signed by John and Judith Andrews. 
(Norwich Land Records; Ejiowlton Ancestry, p. 23.) 

Miss Caulkins in her History of Norwich stated that this 
family was descended from Francis Andrews of Fairfield. 
More recent investigations have proved that John Andrews, 
Sr., of Norwich was identical with John Andrews, Jr., of 
Ipswich, Mass., son of Lieut. John^ Andrews. 

.The descendants of this John' Andrews have spelled the 
name Andrus, Andros, or Andross. Much confusion has been 
caused thereby, and it has been difficult to trace the various 
families and to keep them distinct from other Connecticut 
Andrus-Andros families of a different ancestry. The name 
of the first John of Ipswich was not invariably spelled Andrews, 
for in the Ipswich Court Records and Files there are at least 
two entries in 1656 in which he is called John Andros, Sr., and 
in his will the surname appears as Androuse, a fact which may 
indicate that the early pronunciation of the name was An- 
drose. In the settlement of his estate his sons all signed as 
Andrews. One branch only, that descended from Frederick^ 
(Benjamin,^ Benjamin,' John,' John^), has used the spelling 
Andross. Those who went to Vermont seem to have adopted 
the form Andrus. As far as possible the spelling favored by 
each family is used in this article.

the Quinebaug river, then as the river runs to the extent of the bounds of Norwich." 
This society was nominally nine, but really eleven or twelve, miles long, and was 
justly called Long Society. It remained the East Society of Norwich till 1786, when 
it was annexed to Preston. The records of the society are no longer in existence, and 
therefore but few dates have been recovered for the marriages, births, and deaths in this 
Andrews family. Even in the town records they are laclang, because of the great dis- 
tance from the Norwich town clerk. The only book of Long Society now known to be 
in existence is entitled ''Acts and Records of the East Society of Norwich, Dec. 28, 
1758." In this book the name Andrus occurs frequently. At the seating of the 
meetinghouse, 20 Mar. 1760, it was voted that " Mr. John Larabe, Jabes Fitch, John 
Deming, Jeremiah Andrus should sit in ye seat before ye pulpit." "Voted, that 
Humphrey Aveiy, Joseph Brewster, Benjamin Andrus, John Pride be seated in ye 
second seat before ye pulpit. Jamee Cook, Daniel Tracy ^ Thomas Trueman, John 
Andrus, William Pride, William Brewster, Nathaniel Qiddings, Samuel Palmer, 
Nathaniel Cook, and Joseph Tracy be seated in ye third seat from ye pulpit." On 
another page of the book is a list of what appear to be the dwellers in different school 
districts. One list has the names of Daniel ^drus, Joseph Andrus, Benjamin Andrus, 
Jr., and Jacob Andrus. Even the old graveyard on the sloping hillside back of the 
ohurch has gone nearly to ruin, and only one stone remains bearing the name of Andrus 
— that of Lieut. David, who died 24 Feb. 1766, "in ye 53 year of his Age." Dates and 
relationships have been ^thered mainly from wills and land records and, in some cases, 
from family records which have been preserved. The Diary of Jab<» Fitch, Jr., has 
•applied some important items.

a distinct society, "by reason of the great distance, and by reason of the great river." 
This petition was granted, and in 1722 this part of Norwich was called Newent(now 
Lisbon). Jeremiah Tracy was one of the ori^al members of the Newent, or Tiiird, 
Society of Norwich, constituted in 1723, but m 1750 he joined the Separate Chnnfa 
organised at that place and was chosen its first preacher.

inventory of bis estate was taken 12 Dec. 1763, and in it be is 
called "marcbant" and mention is made of his ''warehouse." 
He married, about 1752, Lydia Spaulding of Plainfield, born 
9 Dec. 1729, daughter of Thomas and Mercy (Welch). 
During their married life they lived in Norwich, probably 
in Long Society; but after the death of Benjamin, who died 
insolvent, his widow, who is said to have been a woman of 
more than ordinary strong sense and energy of character, 
returned, with her children, to Plainfield, where most of her 
relatives lived.

it is proved by certain land records, one of them (Norwich tiand 
Records, vol. 24, p. 283) being a quitclaim deed given by John 
and Priscilla Andrus for £50 paid by Timothy Brewster, in which 
they resign all right in a certain tract of land in Norwich, "the 
same that was set out to said Prissilla as her right of dower in 
the estate of William Brewster, late of Norwich deceased," 25

Deeds) ; no further record of him has been f oimd. 

13. Daniel* Andrus {Damd,^ John,^ John^), baptized at Preston 
14 Apr. 1723, was living at Pawlet, Vt., in 1802. He married, 
7 Oct. 1747, Temperance Holmes of North Stonington, 
baptized in the North Stonington Congregational Church 
23 Sept. 1733, daughter of Capt. John* and Abigail (Frink). 
In his will, dated at Stonington 1 Mar. 1783, Capt. John* 
Holmes (Joshua,' Joshua,^ Robert^ mentions his daughter 
Temperance Andris. 
On 17 Feb. 1749/50 David Andrus, "for divers good causes 

114 Descendarda of John Andrews [April 

and mature consideratioD me moving, and more especially 
for farther improvement and comforteble settlement of my 
well beloved son Daniel Andrus/' gave to Daniel a tract of 
land on the east side of the Shetucket River, it being ''under- 
stood that said Daniel is never to sell this land in h^ father's 
lifetime." In 1752 Daniel Andrus of Norwich, for £550, 
bought land in the East Society of his cousin Isaac Andrus 
(Norwich Land Records). " y« 25**» [Jan. 1762] . . . in y« 
afternoon we went Down to Prides to an arbitration betwend 
Capt: Truman & Dan" Andrus, which y« Pratys Settled" 
(Jabez Fitch's Diary). In 1763 Daniel Andrus, with others, 
was permitted to buUd a pew in the church of Long Society. 
His name is frequently found in the land records of Norwich, 
both as a buyer and a seller of land; but in 1768 he seems to 
have fallen into financial difficulties and is mentioned several 
times in court records on account of debt. In 1777 he took 
the freeman's oath at Norwich. No further record of him 
is foimd until 1789, when he was at Danby, Vt., and gave 
a quitclaim deed of certain land at Preston to Jonathan 
Truman of that place. In 1802 he was mentioned in the will 
of his sister Judith, who gave $20 to her "brother Daniel 
Andrus, now of Pawlet, Vt."

a carpenter of Norwich, " 5 feet 10 inches, dark complexion, black 
hair.'' In 1813 Elisha and Timothy A. Andrus (perhaps a 
brother) sold land at Norwich. No further record of him has 
been found.

and Priscilla (Sampson) . They went to Pawlet, V t ., abt . 1 784. In 
1791 he was licensed to preach by the Baptists of that town, and 
in 1813 he removed to Ellisburg, N. Y., where he became a 
preacher of the Baptist Church. Later he joined the Disciples, 
and from that time was called Elder Timothy Brewster. Chil-

* No birth records of children of this family have been found. Only one child is 
known with certainty — Elisha, who is mentioned in the will of his aunt, Judith An- 
drus, in 1802, as the "son of my brother Daniel." There is no positive proof that the 
others here named were the children of Daniel and Temperance (Holmes) Ajidnis, 
but the circumstantial evidence is so strong that their family history is given here. 
The order of the births ot these children is unknown. There were proMibly other 
children of this family. 

1916] Aneegbry of Mary Maplett, Wife of Samud QorUm 115 


Communiosted hy Gbobob Wai/tbb Chambbblaz|l M^., of Maiden, Mass. 

The wills of Mary Mayplett of London, widow, and Dr. John 
Maplett of Bath, co. Somerset, were discovered in England by the 
late Henry FitzGilbert Waters, Esq., and abstracts of them were 
published in the Registbb in 1890 and 1892. They proved that the 
wife of Samuel Gorton, whose controversies with the authorities of the 
Plymouth Colony and the Massachusetts Bay Ck)lony have been often 

described, was not Elizabeth ( ^), as Austin and others had 

stated, but Mary (Maplett). lliese wills seemed also, as a contribu- 
tor to the Rbgisteb (vol. 51, pp. 199-200) pointed out, to justify the 
assertion of Gorton that his wife " had bin as tenderly brought up as 
was any man's wife then in that towne [Plymouth in New England]." 
The same contributor suggested that Mary (Maplett) Gorton mi^t 
have been the granddaughter of Rev. Jolm Maplet of Northall, co. 
Middlesex, through his son John. The wills of this Rev. John Ma- 
plet and his son John have recently been found, and they, with certain 
entries in the registers of the parish of St. Lawrence Jewry, London, 
show that this suggested ancestry of Mary (Maplett) Gorton is the 
correct ancestry. Abstracts of these wills and of the two discovered 
by Mr. Waters, with other English records, are given below, and are 
followed by a brief pedigree showing the descent of Mary (Maplett) 
Gorton and her brothers and sisters from Rev. John Maplet of North-

P^m the foregoing material and from New England records the follow- 
ing pedigree has been compiled: 

The Chatfield family is of Sussex origin and doubtless derived its name 
from Catsfield, a pari^ in southeastern Sussex, one mile from the famous 
Battle Abbey, which was built on the spot where King Harold fell in the 
Battle of HftstingB or Senlac. 

Ab early as 1300 the family was established in Mid-Sussex, the first of 
the name there of whom records have been found being William de Catte- 
feld, who in 1327-8 and 1332-3 was taxed in subsidies in the township of 
Street, in the very centre of the county and about twenty-five miles west 
of Catsfield. For over three centuries the family continued in Street and 
the adjoining parishes of Ditchling and Chailey; but after 1332-3 there

130 OenealoQical Be^eareh in England [April 

IS a gap of about one hundred and twenty years, covering four or five gen- 
erations, concerning which no records have been discovered. The next 
of the family who is known is 

1. Thomas Chatfield, bom probably about 1450, from whom a con- 
tinuous descent can be traced. Accordmg to the Visitations of Suaaex he 
was of Bedyles in the parish of Ditchling. He was probably living in 1523, 
when Thomas Chatfield, Jun., presumably his son, appears in a subsidy. 

2. i. John,* b. probably abt. 1475. 

ii. Thomas,* d. abt. 1480. As Thomas Chatfeld Jun. he was assessed 
in the subsidy of 1523 for the Hundred of Street. In 1527/8 he 
and his s. Thomas acquired "Ix^eld" in the parish of Cbailey. 
His 8. Thoma8, b. abt. 1505, was father of John, b. abt. 1530. who 
was father of John, b. abt. 1560, d. 30 Jan. 1598/9, who was father 
of John, b. in 1587, d. 10 Sept. 1638, who was father of John, b. 
in 1625. All these were of Cnailey, as is shown in the inouisitions 
poet mortem of John who d. in 1598/9 and of John wno d. in 

iii. William,* appears in the subsidy for the Hundred of Street in 1523. 

2. John Chatfield (Thomas)^ bom probably about 1475, was of Bedyles 

in the parish of Ditchlmg according to the Visitations of Sussex, 
which also state that he married Alice Staplet, daughter of Richard 
of Twineham, co. Sussex. He is evidently the John Chatfield, Sen., 
who wss assessed in the Hundred of Street in the subady of 1523. 

3. i. RiCHARD,t b. abt. 1500. 

ii. JoHN,t enrolled in the subsidy for the Hundred of Street in 1523 as 

John Chatfeld, Jun. 
iii. ROBERT} t assessed in the subsidy for the Hundred of Street in 1545/6. 

3. Richard Chatfield (John, Thomas^, the testator of 1582, of Bedyles 

in the parish of Ditchling, of Oving, Treyford, Sidlesham, and Chi- 
chester. CO. Sussex, and of the Isle of Hayling, co. Hants, bom about 
1500, oied in July 1586. When he was a young man he removed 
thirty miles westward from his ancestral region of Mid-Sussex and 
settled in Chichester. In this city he probably secured in trade the 
means which enabled him to acquire numerous pieces of property 
(some of which formerly belonged to monastics dii»olved by 
Henry VIII), and to raise his branch of the family into the armiger- 
ous gentry, with its pedigree and arms entered in the Heralds' Visi- 
tations, while the branches in Mid-Sussex remained among the 
yeomanry. In the subsidy of 1523 he was assessed for lands in the 
Hundred of Street and for goods in Chichester.^ Between 1544 and 
1572 he was assessed in the Rape of Chichester in various subsidies, 
and acquired property at Chicnester, Oving, West Ashling, Sidles- 
ham, 'A^yford, Westmeston, Middleton, Twineham, and Bolney. 
When he made his will in 1582 he was living at Chidhester, and he 
was buried in the Cathedral there 26 July 1586. His will is a brief 
and unsatisfactory document, as it names only two of his children, 
although it is certain that he had at least six and probably even more. 
It is evident that he had given portions to his children during hia 
lifetime. No monument to him remains, as the iconoclastic partisans

sons of Thomas.

He married first, about 1530, Elizabeth (Brane or Brond) 
Peckham, daughter of John Brane or Bnmd of Hove, co. Sussex, and 
widow of John Peckham; and secondly, after 9 Apr. 1570, Agnes or 
Anne , who survived him. 

Children by first wife: 

i. Nicholas, probably the eldest son, as he hdd the ancestral estate in 
Mid-Sussex; said in Beny's Sussex Genealogies to have left de- 
scendants at Ditchling. 

4. ii. Francis, b. probably abt. 1532. 

iii. George, the testator of 1599/1600, b. probably abt. 1535; d. «.p., being 
bur. in the Cathedral at Chichester 5 Feb. 1599/1600; m. Agnes 

( ) March, widow. On 8 Nov. 1565 he leased a farm called Bol- 

neys in South Mundham in Pagham, abt. four miles south of Chiches- 
ter, where he settled and resid^ several years. In 1572 he was taxed 
there in a subsidy, and in 1576 he is mentumed in Pagham as farmer of 
the^ rectory. He also had lands in Oving, and later removed into 
Chichester, where he acquired several pieces of property, was 
assessed in subsidies in 1596, 1597, and 1599, and in 1586 and 1599 
was mayor of that city, dyins in office in the last-mentioned year. 
The embossed silver and gilt bowl which he beoueathed to the 
corporation of Chichester has disappeared from tne collection of 
municipal plate there. He left his property among the children 
of his eldest brother, Francis Chatfiela, the latter 's second and 
third sons, Francis and George, receiving all the real estate; and, 
except for small bequests to his two sisters, his other relatives were

w^e, CO. Sussex, where he died 4 May 1594 according to his inquisition 
post mortem, which also shows that he held lands in Westmeston and 
Ashling. He also owned land in Oving, which was probably given 
to him by his father Richard Chatfield, who acquired lands in this 
parish in 1554/5. This land Francis Chatfield seems to have alienated 
or mortgaged by fine in 1580. The registers of Oving do not con- 
tain the baptisms of his children, and therefore they were probably 
baptized at Rumboldswyke, the early registers of which are missing. 
His will names only his five eldest chilm'en; the names of the five 
youngest are derived from the will of his brother George Chatfield 
m 1599/1600.

years and more on 4 May 1594, at the death of ms father, according

years resided in Chichester, where he had children recorded and 
where he waa a collector of the subsidy of 1598^. In 1608 he ac- 
quired by fine some property in Funtin^n in the Hundred of Bos- 
ham, where he was assessed in the subsidy of 1610; in 1614 he and 
his wife Cicely conveyed by fine property in this parish. In 1609 
he acquired by fine from his brother George Chatfield two farms in 
South Mundham and Pagham; three years later he and his wife 
conveyed the same to Edward Rose. After about 1615 he appears 
to have resided at North Mundham. where he is mentioned in a land 
scot in 1633. The time and place ot his death have not been learned. 
He married first, by licence of 3 Jan. 1592/3, as "Richard Chat-

8. George Chatfield (Francis, Richard, John, Thomat), of South Mund- 

ham in Pagham, co. Sussex, bom about 1566, received by the will 
of his father in 1594 a share of the latter's goods and by the will of 
his uncle, Geoige Chatfield. in 1599/1600 lands in Chidiester, South 
Mundham in Pagham, ana Oving, some of which he and ms wife 
Margaret alienated by fines in 1606 and 1609. He probably gave 
property to his children in his lifetime, as at his death at Pagham in 
1619 the inventory of his estate showed personal property of only 
£8. 8s. 4d., administration on his estate having been granted, 13 
Nov. 1619, to his widow Margaret. As he 1^ no will, as no inquisi- 
tion post mortem was held on his estate, as the early registers and 
manor rolls of Pagham are lost, and as all other possible sources of 
information have been fruitlessly examined, positive proof has not 
been secured that Henry Chatfield who follows him in South Mund- 
ham in Pagham was his son; but the circumstantial evidence is such 
as to leave no reasonable doubt that this Henry was son and heir of

goods by the will of his father in 1594, and he also received £50 by 
the will of his imcle, George Chatfield, in 1599/1600. Further 
knowledge of him has been found only in the Visitation of Sussex of 
1633-4, which states that he married a Dutch woman, that he was 
then hving in the Low Countries, and that he had the following

of his father by the latter's will in 1594 and a legacy of £50 by the 
will of his imcle, George Chatfield. in 1599/1600. He was an assessor 
for the Hundred of Box and Stockbridge, in which Oving is situated, 
in the subsidy of 1596-7. He resided on the ancestral farm of 
Groves in Oving, where his name appears on the Protestation Roll 
in Feb. 1641/2. He probably acquired Groves by deed from his 
brothers Francis and George, to whom it was left by the will of their 
uncle George in 1599/1600, who states that it had been conveyed to 
him by his father, Richard Chatfield. 

He married, about 1602, Sarah , who was buried at Oving

11. Henry Chatfield (Oeorpe, Francis. Richard^ John, Thomas)^ of South 
Mundham in the parish of Pagnam and of North Mundham, co. 
Sussex, the testator of 1636/7, bom probably i^ut 1588, was buried 
at North Mundham 1 Feb. 1636/7. While, as stated above, positive 
proof has not been found that he was son of George of Paghiam (8), 
as the latter left no will and the early registers as weU as we manor 
rolls of Pagham are lost, jret the circumstantial evidence furnished 
bv place, names, and elimmation seems conclusive. In 1610 Heni^ 
Chatfield appears in a subsidy at Pagham, where it is known that his 
presumed father George, his presumed uncles Richard and Francis, 
and his presumed great-imcle George resided and possessed landea 
property for more than half a century. Henry named his eldest 
daughter Margaret^ probably for his mother^ and two of his sons 
George and IVancis, the former evidently for his fietther and his 
great-uncle and the latter for his uncle and his grandfather. An 
exhaustive search among all the Chatfields of all Sussex in the six- 
teenth and first half of the seventeenth century has failed to disclose 
the names George and Francis except among the descendants of the 
armigerous landed branch founded by the Richard Chat£eld (3) 
of Cnichester who died in 1586. Furthermore, Henry Chatfield 
appears in subsidies at Pagham in 1610 and 162k)-l, when he was 
still a young man, and therefore at his marriage he was probably 
well established by his father, who must have becA a man of property, 
as Geor^ of Pa^^iam certainly was. The will also of Henry Chat- 
field indicates that he was a man of substantial estate; and each of 
his sons, Francis, Thomas, and George, who emimited to New Eng- 
land, is there styled ''Mr.'' or "gentleman.'' Lastly, as it seems 
evident from the foregoing reasons that Henry Chatfield was de- 
scended from the Riclmrd of Chichester who died in 1586, it seems 
also, by the process of elimination, that he cannot be placed in that 
branch of the family except as a son of George of Pa^iam (8). 

The subsidies show that Heniy Chatfield resided at South Mund- 
ham in Pagham, but his will indicates t^t he had lands also in North 
Mundham. Doubtless most of his children were baptised at Pi^am, 
the early registers of which are missing; but he auK> lived at North 
Mundhiun, where he was in the land scot in 1633 and where he was 

The Protestation Roll of Feb. 1641/2 for the western half of Sussex, 
containing the names of all males eighteen years of age and upwards 
in each parish, is preserved in the House of Lords, and has been 
printed. While the names of the two sons-in-law of Henry Chat- 
field appear on the roll, the names of his sons Francis. Thomas, and 
George are not on it; they had gone to New England in 1639.

Henry Chatfield married first, about 1610, , who died early 

in 1614; and secondly, probably late in 1614, Janb ( ) Wick- 
ham, widow (perhaps of George Wiokham of nunston), the testatrix 
of 1638/9, who was buried at North Mundham 17 Mar. 1638/9.

1916] BeUs qf Trinity Church, Newport, R. I. 147 


By Abthub Howard Nicholb, A.B., M.D., of Boston, Maas. 

Seven bells have been hung at different times in the steeple of 
Trinity Church, Newport, R. I., including the original small bell, 
now preserved as a reUc, and the one now in use. 

FiBST Bell 

In the year 1702, four years after the organization of the Society, 
when the edifice had been completed and furnished with pews, 
arrangements were made for builchng the steeple. It was then that 
the original small bell, weighing about 125 pounds, and 19 inches in 
height, was obtained from England, possibly through the agency of 
the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, which had in other 
ways been helpful to this parish. No mention of this bell, however, 
has been found in the church records. It bears the date, 1702, 
beneath the crown, and a broad arrow on the middle of the waist. 
The cannons, or loops above the crown, appendages which have 
recently been discarded as useless by all founders, are of the prolonged 
type in use at that period. It has been surmised that the broad arrow 
indicated the gift of royalty, but it is more hkely to be the trade 
stamp, or device, of the Bilbies. This firm established a foundry 
in 1698 at Chew-Stoke, a village of Somersetshire, and in the eight- 
eenth century opened a branch establishment at CuUompton, co. 
Devon, which lasted imtil 1813. In the custody of the Bostonian 
Society is preserved a bell imported for the old Court House, built in 
1773 on School Street. It is inscribed in Arabic capitals: "T. B. 
1774," with the broad arrow beneath. It is almost certain that this 
bell was made by Thomas Bilbie, Jr., who was connected with the 
above-mentioned foundry from 1754 to 1790. Bilbie bells are most 
numerous in Somersetshire, where at Wells, for example, is a tuneful 
ring of ten in the massive tower of St. Cuthbert. 

This first bell, after its displacement in 1709, was used as a school 
bdl in the cupola of the building now occupied by the Shiloh Baptist 
Society. On 2 June 1845, by vote of the vestry of Trinity Church, it 
was given to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Middletown, R. I., whence 
it was again removed to give place to a larger bell, the fflt of Ruth Ann 
Hall of Bristol, R. I. R^tor^ to its original owners in 1901 by 
James R. Chase, senior warden of the Chapel, it was assigned to a 
lumber loom and virtually forgotten until brought to light in 1913 by 
the present rector. Rev. St^ey C. Hughes. 

Second Bell 

The original light bell, more appropriate for a factory or engine 
house, was succeeded in 1709 by another weighing 800 pounds, the 
gift of Queen Anne, who was persuaded later to send a small library 
and other valuable gifts to the Society. Although with reasonable 
care this royal gift should have had a life of centuries, towards the 
end of the year 1739 it was cracked; and its destruction is to be 
especially deplored for the reason that bells cast during the first half 

VOL. f.TT, 10 

148 Bdls qf Trinity Chtarth, Newport, R. I. [April 

of the eighteenth century, being compoBed of more sonorous metal 
than the product of modem mines, excelled in purity of tone and 
carrying power. Indeed, the records of the Society bear witness to 
the superiority of this instrument, which was said to be ''prized not 
only by the congregation, but by the whole town/' 

Thibd Bell 

On 17 July 1740 it was voted to ship the condemned bell to Eng- 
land, the proceeds of its sale to be applied with other money to 
be raised by subscription towards the purchase of a new bell of about 
1000 pounds in weight. Raised to the tower in the summer of 1741, 
this third bell did service for sixty-three years, becoming cracked in 
Apr. 1804. Of its quality no report has been handed down. 

FouBTH Bell 

At the beginning of the nineteenth century the art of bell founding 
was in its infancy in America, and the crude, unhomogeneous castings 
of that period resulted generally in fra^e instruments of harsh, 
shrill sound, some specimens of which are still extant. Notwith- 
standing the difference between castings at that date of domestic and 
foreign manufacture, the conunittee accepted in June 1804 a bid of 
Fenno & Crocker of Hartford, Conn., for a bell of 1200 pounds, with 
the stipulation that the work of casting should be entrusted to a Mr. 
Doolittle, ''who had a good reputation in that line," and that the old 
bell should be incorporated in the new amalgam. When installed, 
4 Sept. 1804, it was voted "that the sexton ring her as usual at sun- 
rise, one of the clock, p.m., and at nine in the evening: and that he 
be permitted to raise money by a general subscription to reward him 
for doing the same." As to the qualifications of the artisan, Mr. 
Doolittle, it is perhaps significant that this fourth bell became 
cracked in November of the same year. 

Fifth Bell 

At a meeting of the congregation, held 3 Mar. 1805, it was made 
known that a contract had been executed with Messrs. Fenton 
& Cochran of New Haven, Conn., to cast a bell of the same weight as 
the old one of entirely new materials, they agreeing to receive the one 
cast at Hartford as payment in part. This new bell, weighing 1375 
pounds, was the one hundred and fifteenth that had been cast in the 
same foundry during a period of ten years. A later entry throws 
light upon the quality of this bell: 

''When delivered it was noted that the fused metal had shrunk when 
cooling in the upper part of the crown, and there were blotches on the rim: 
but as there was nothing objectionable in the sound the bell was accepted." 

Although it is probable that similar defects conducive to fragility 
and inharmonic sounds existed in the inner structure of this bdd 
and should have caused its rejection, it was nevertheless not 
cracked until the latter part of the year 1842. 

Sixth Bell 

On 7 Mar. 1843 the senior warden reported the cost of the new bell, 
including hangings, to be $234.13, of which $212.90 was raised by 

1916] Belh of TrinUy Church, Newport, R.I. 149 

subscriptions and the balance was drawn from the treasurer. Its 
weight was 1876 pounds. Meeting the fate of its predecessors, it was 
cracked in 1876. 

Seventh Bell 

The present bell, into the amalgam of which the metal of the sixth 
bell entered, ''out of deference to Dr. King and others/' was cast by 
Mencely & Company of West Troy (now of Watervliet), N. Y. It 
weighs 3450 pounds, is of deep, mellow tone, and bears the following 
inscriptions, one on each waist: 

Vivos voco; mortuos plango. 
When I do rinff, God's praises sing. 
When I do toiue, pray heart and soule. 

The Gift of Queen Anne to Trinity Church, Newport, R. I., 1709. 
Recast in 1843. Recast and doubled in w^ght, 1876. 

Inasmuch as this seventh bell weighs more than four times that 
gjven by Queen Anne and contains no portion of its metal, the above 
inscription is of questionable propriety. It may be said, however, in 
explanation, that inscriptions on old bells are sometimes reproduced 
as a matter of sentiment on modem instruments with which they may 
have a certain relation. Thus, on three bells of the English peal placed 
in 1912 in the Memorial Tower at Hingham, Mass., are repeated the 
identical inscriptions brazed on the bells of St. Andrew's at Hingham, 
CO. Norfolk, Eng., the old home of many of Hie pioneers of the Massa- 
chusetts settlement. 

Comparison with other old bells bearing authentic dates indicates 
that the bell of 1702 is one of the few of that period which have escaped 
the mismanagement of a careless sexton. When tracing the his- 
tory of the bells cast by Revere & Son the writer learned that while 
fifty were broken, presumably by faulty handling, no less than thirty- 
nine disappeared when the church edifice was destroyed by fire, attri- 
buted almost invariably to an overheated stove or furnace. 

The original bells of Trinity Church, New York City, cast about 
the year 1700, are said to have been the gift of Queen Anne. Of these, 
three were transferred to Trinity Chapel and a fourth is still in use in 
St. Paul's. Of the peal of bells now suspended in Trinity steeple, five 
remain of those imported in the year 1797 from the Whitechapel 
foundry, London, and one bears a date prior to the Revolution. 
Another bell, given to this society by the Bishop of London, was cast 
in 1704 and now hangs in St. Augustine's steeple. In the steeple of 
the Dutch Reformed Church, Fifth Avenue, is a bell cast at Amster- 
dam in the year 1731 and removed from the old church on Nassau 
Street, a legacy from the will of Col. Abram de Peyser. Preserved in 
the Washington Headquarters at Newburg, N. Y., is a bell of 25 
pounds, cast at Amsterdam in the year 1716, and given in 1719 to the 
first settlers of Newburg, who loaned it temporarily to the Lutheran 
Society in New York, until a church was built by the pioneers in 1733. 
It is probable that the oldest English bell remaining in this country is 
that in the Court House at Barnstable, Mass. It is inscribed: ''Si 
Deus pro nobis, quis contra nos. 1675," and was the gift of the widow 
of Peter Adolph of New York to the First Parish Church, Sandwich, 

150 Records by Rev. John Smith, DJ). [April 

Mass., in gratitude to the people of that town for recovering the body 
of her husband, who had been drowned in a wreck off the shore. 
After the sale of this church the bell came into possession of the 
Ck)unty Court House. Although this building was totally destroyed 
by fire in 1827| the belfry tipped forward in such a way as to bring the 
bell to the ground uninjiured. Raised to the cupola of the present Court 
House in 1833, it was cracked by blows from a blacksmith's hammer, 
4 July 1872.

By William Bradford Browns of North Adams, Mass. 

The following genealogy of the descendants of John^ Peterson of 
Duxbury, Mass., has been compiled from the vital records of numer- 
ous towns and from church, cemetery, probate, and land records. 
Private memoranda have also been consulted, including Bible records. 
All facts given are from authoritative sources, and statements about 
which any doubt exists are indicated. 

The early generations of this Duxbury family are scantily recorded, 
and in attempting to arrange them correctly the writer has used his 
best judgment, considering carefully all available evidence in trying 
to identify such stray families as appear. Fortunately the majority 
of the descendants of John^ Peterson have their lineage perfectly 
verified, most of those lines whose descent is a matter of conjecture 
having become extinct or having removed to places unknown to the 
writer. The later generations descended from Reuben* Peterson (12) 
are fully recorded in the Duxbury town records, which are authority 
for them. For records from various cemeteries, churches, and 
Bibles the writer is indebted to Mrs. Sidney Peterson of Duxbury, 
who has devoted much time and study to insure their accuracy. 

All the descendants of John^ Peterson are descended also from 

162 The Pelerwn Family of Dujimry^ Mass, [April 

George Soule of the Mayflower^ and succeeding generations have 
married very generally into Ma3rflower families. Such descents have 
been pointed out when Imown to the writer, although no special 
attempt has been made to trace them all. 

Besides the family of John^ Peterson of Duxbury there were 
certainly two other Peterson families in New England, evidently of 
a later immigration and probably not related to each other or to the 
Duxbury fimiily. One of these families appears in Rhode Island 
about 1725; and the other was settled at Newbury, Mass., where the 
marriage of Dr. Daniel Peterson of Salem and Elisabeth Willet is 
record^ under date of 23 Jan. 1719/20, and the births of their 
children from 1720 to 1735 are found. Some members of this family 
removed to New Hampshire and mingled with some of the Duxbury 
family, and therefore the identification of the New Hampshire 
Petersons is a difficult matter. 

1. JoHN^ Peterson, an early settler in Duxbury,* married, before 
1665, Mary Soule, bom before 1650, daughter of George (who came 
in the Mayflower in 1620) and Mary of Duxbury. He died between 
29 Apr. 1718 (the date of his will) and 26 Mar. 1720 (the date of the 
inventory of his estate), and was probably buried on his farm in 
Duxbury, perhaps at the spot where in recent excavating an ancient 
burial place has been discovered. His farm was on Powder Point, 
and was purchased of his father-in-law, George Soule, who in a deposi- 
tion dat^ 27 Oct. 1674 stated that it had been his homestead farm. 
This farm, on which both George Soule and John Peterson in turn 
lived, remained in the possession of their descendants almost to the 
present day; for although the male line of descendants of Isaac' 
Peterson, in which his father, John^ Peterson, evidently intended the 
farm to remain (his will stating that it should descend to the male 
heirs of Isaac), failed immediately, the ownership of the land has until 
very recently remained in the line descended from Isaac's daughter, 
Priscilla Weston.t 

Children, bom probably at Duxbury (order of births 
uncertain) : 

i. John,* d. iinm. in 1690 (Plymouth Probate Records). 

2. ii. Joseph, called " eldest " in his father's will, b. before 1670.

vi. Dayh), b. in 1676; d^ probablv unm.. 30 Sept. 1760. aged 84 years 
wanting 1 day. The will of Davia Peterson of *' Duxborough," 
yeoman, dated 16 July 1760 and proved 2 Mar. 1761, contains the 
following beouests: To ''my sister Rebecca Weston over and 
above wnat sne hath had heretofore three Dollars." To " Han- 
nah Soule one dollar." To "Rebecca Soule one dollar." To 
** Priscilla Weston the wife of EUphas Weston one dollar." To

my Kinsman Jonathan Peterson shall be soul executor." To this 
will David Peterson made his mark. The witnesses were Thomas 
Weston, Peres Howland. and Elnathan Weston. (Plymouth 
Probate Reoords, vol. lo, p. 45.) The testator certainly had 
neither wife nor children living when this will was made. He 
probably lived with the family of his deceased brother Jonathan, 
and to them he left the most of his estate.

2. Joseph^ Petebson (John^), born, probably at Duxbury, before 

1670, died in 1751. He married at Plymouth, 23 Aug. 1704, 

Sarah (Jones) Doty, bom 12 Sept. 1671, daughter of Joseph 

and Patience (Little) Jones and widow of John Doty, who had 

married her 22 Nov. 1694 and had died 8 May 1701. Her 

mother. Patience Little, was dau^ter of Thomas and Anna 

(Warren) Little and granddaughter of Richard Warren of the 

Mayflower. Her uncle, John Jones, mentions In his will his niece 

Sarah Peterson. Joseph Peterson resided in North Duxbury, 

on South River, adjoining Marshfield, on a 90-acre farm, 

which he conveyed to his son Joseph in 1739.

about 1669, died 11 Feb. 1760, aged 90 years, 5 months, and 
was buried in the Standish Cemetery, which was near his 
farm. He married, 9 Feb. 1698/9, Hannah Wadsworth, 
daughter of Dea. John and Abigail (Andrews) of Duxbury. 
She died " the night following the" 6 Feb. 1732/3. Of their 
children as given below only the first and third are recorded 
as such; but the others must be of this family, for the families 
of the other brothers are accounted for.

1701, died after 1765. He married, 21 Aug. 1726, Ruth^ 
Delano, born at Duxbury 25 May 1707, living in 1756, 
daughter of Jonathan' (Thomas,* Philip^) and Hannah (Dotj-) 
and a descendant of John Alden and Edward Doty of the 
Mayflower, From deeds it is kno\i7i that John Peterson lived 
at various times at Duxbury, Middleborough, Pembroke, and 
Rochester, Mass., and also at Richmond and Scituate, R. I. 
In 1756, at Richmond, R. I., he sold his Pembroke lands, and 
in 1765, at Scituate, R. I., he conveyed land to his son Sil- 
vanus, the deed furnishing the only positive record of any of 
his children. It is, however, beyond doubt that the Peterson 
marriages recorded at Middleborough were those of his 
children, for his family was the only Peterson family- resident 
there at that time; and the same applies to the Peterson 
marriages recorded at Richmond and Scituate, R. I., and at 

1916] The Peterson Family of Duxbwry, Mass. 167

for these children.

^ In corroboration of the theory that the children named here were brothers and 
■istem and were children of John and Ruth (Delano) Peterwn. it ma^ be noted that 
I^rdia, ZQpha, and Rhoda were rendents of Pelham, that the sole sumving grandchild 
of Rhoda £kison testifies that her grandmother was one of a laroe number of sisters, 
thai another granddaughter left a memorandum stating that Rhoda's mother was a 
Delano, and that the unmarried sister, Ruth, lived with the mother of the writer of 
this memorandum. Furthermore, Rhoda Edson had a son named Delano Edson. 

t Abieser Edson, Jr., was a cousin of Peter,^ Isaac,^ and Nathan* Bennett, his 
mothsr. Jael* Bennett, having been a danghter of PeteH Bennett. He and his Bennett 
•oosins were descended from Mayflower ancestors through the wife of Petei* Bennett, 
who was Prisdlla Howland, daughter of Isaac and Elisabeth (Vaughn).

The next Spring I returned to the eastward and clearing and cutting cord- 
wood was my most perticular work my Brother James cut him self in haytime 
that he cold not work and he brought a yoak of oxen to me and then I could 
Do better while he was with me we cut and hued timber for a Dwelling hous 
and f raimed and raised it, I agreed with and paid a man for eight thousands of 
shingles he was to have them to my landing by the next march, and I came 
to the westward and Did not retiu*n till the next June and the Shingcls was 
not come, so I was Dissopinted and had to help make them^owever I went 
on with my house covered it with boards and the Shingels Dug a suller and 
well stoned them and a Drean from each of them, however singler you may

one I had before and two oxen was four head of horned cattle we had to begin 
with, with Seven Sheep Nov. 25 we gathered our little all together [7] 
And set out and about 10 days arived at our desired haven Belfast be[i]ng 
the first part of December — not having my house finished we were obliged 
to move mto our log Camp — but ^tho it was cold I persevered in building 
a stone chimney and oven there not being any bricks in that vecinity at that 
time we must do as we could we found the stone oven Do very well, and we 
moved in the cource of the winter — 

my wife always had a fear of the Indians and in March 1775 I was in the 
woods she at her wash tub with her back toward the Dooar She thought what 
should she Do if Indians Should come here now and She alone — and in one 
minit after thought she heard something S[t]ep on the floor She turned round 
and there Stood three Indiaos Sanups they appeared to be hungry She fed 
them and they left the house peaceably although She was much frighted — 
circumstances of this kind [o]ften happned but the same kind Providence 
who has alwa3rs protectted us from hs^ saved us from them 

Not ha[v]ing sufif[i]cent of hay to keep my little Stock on and having heard 
of a meadow about four or five milds back in the woods (and I attempted to 
find it without a pilet but as there was no roade and ) i employed a hunter to 
go and Shoe it me I etempeted to find the way hame alone, and I made so 
good a landfall that I fielt so confident I could find it that I endeavoured to 
Do it without a pit a plot [sic, ? without a pilot] I found more grass then I 
stood in need of so I Informed my neighboiur Tolford Durham and he joined 
me in cuting and giting it, the nex fiyday we Set Out for to find the meadow 
without a pUot, two Sithes and hengings, two Rakes, one pitch fork, one axe, 
one gun, and too Days alowence of provisions and we Set out for the meadow 
and found it not tho we came to a little Rivulet, by it we were brought us 
[sic] to goose river, it led us so that we came to old Mr, John Durhuns and we 
staid there till morning and then we set out for the meadow — and Tolf ords 
Bro. John Durhams with us, we all were in search of it till about noon and then 
found it and al began to moing and cut on lively till almost night and then 
John had to leve us for he had to go home alone, and Tolford and I, we cut on 
till about sun Set and then we fixt for home, [he] carri^ the guns and it was 
my part to carry the axe and mark trees or bushes so as we could find the way 
back when we wisht to return 

[8] Having refreshed ourselves with a little food we set out and by the time 
we came into the high woods tho we had a pocket cumpass it was of no use to 
us on account of the darkness of the night and we could not Discover whether 
we were going ri^ht or wronp ... I continued marking, tho I had a very bad 
chance for markmg a road it was so dark Tolford woiUd often sav, come let 
us camp I would Speak incouriging, to him so we kept moving along till we 
came to a precipus the edge of a swamp, there said Mr Durham we must now 
camp for if we go in there we cannot git out tonight I said to him, you stay 
here and I will go in a little way and see and feel hoow the going is and let you 
know so I went on and found it very bad, but Deerst not let it be known, but 
said to him come here, you can come heare easi anough, I capt the axe busy 
80 he came and we got through, and soon after we Discouered the noise of 
water runing and it was a little rivlet runing from that swamp, it popt into 
my m[i]nd, it was the swamp Mr Houstons brook proceeded from and we 
marked no more there, but went Down the brook and going eighty Rod, to 
our joyfull surprise we came to a bridge on the roade t^Eit crossed over that 
brook and we then were within about one quarter of a mild of my house, so I 
got home and Mr Durham had to go but about fourty Rods further . . . 

[11] . . . I think it was in the Summer of Uie yr 1776 before we knew that 
the british army had come to a stand so near us as to anker in the Bay near 
the Owls Head harbour which was about thirty miles from Belfast they 
continued there from first to last about two years and then mooved off, about 

170 RemifMcenees of John Daridaon [April 

that time my neifi^bour Durham came to my house in a great huny and could 
Sceardy speak by Seeing the read coats glistering guns and runmg he 

they were in his field a coming toward the rpad from the shore and seong us 
about tiie house Before these men these brittons came so near so as to Dis- 
cover my wife, She had bread baking at the fire I went and took it back, I 
took the ke^y to lock the Dooar but Did not lock it, as Soon as I saw the men 
I knew two of them viz Capt Strout of sandy point and Mr Black his neigh- 
beur, the chief of the time these men were conung from the ^oare to the rod 
I was in the house puting things in order a little Durham said to my wife run 
run she said where shall I run Down celler he Said no they will bum it over 
your head run to the woods, so She went to the woods 

And to return to these read coated men tw[e]lve in number of them, th^ 
ware taken prisoners further east and brought here to Belfast by three men 
and were to be conveyed heave, and they to be halped firom one place to 
another till they arive at h[e]adquarters at the westward, and we three John 
Durham Junr Samuel Mitchel and myself took them into a boat and carried 
them in it thirty miles to camden Som of them, were crooe and ill natured 
we three set in the stem of the boat with our guns in good order and loaded 
I think them twelve could have taken us tho we had guns and Sword they had 
Jadaiives I think each one had a knife but th^ did not appear to wish to go 
from or harm us in any way although it was in their pour to h[a]ve carried us 
to them to camsdon and 1^ or d[ejlivered them [iUeifible] Kap Minard to be 
Sent on by another file of men to another place and from that to another run 
till they arrive at Boston at headquarters [12] We returned to Belfast same 
Day at even had a comfortable psiasM nothing harmed ua nei[t]her going nor 
coming This I consider the hand of God was and is to be seen yet tho it is a 
greate many years ago such f aviors is worthy our remarks 

About this time and about a year after the inhabitents was shcNrt of pro- 
vision, on account of our b[e]ing short of aminition partly, as in those dajrs 
m[a]ny were dependent on wild meat which could not be procured without 
amumtion if we are nearly out and could not obtain any and knowing col. 
Thomas Gouldthroit was intrusted with a good stock of powder ball and flint 
and if we could contrive any way to receive a way to have a part of what he 
was intrusted with from head quarters So we set out with what amintion 
we had and our guns in good order and went by water no further then cape 
giUison harbour about five miles, lest we should be Discovered and left our 
water crafts there and marched through the wood about three miles to the 
fort mr James Nichols and my Self were chosen to go to introduce the subject 
to col. gouldthroit once more we are come to ask for some of the aminision 
you were intrusted with that were in your possession and defence of the in- 
habitence of Belfast as they were Suffering for want of it and we had no other 
way to git it, he was Still obstinate and would not condecend to say anything 
like condecending we told him we were De[te]rm[i]ned to have it ^ it should 
be by the force of arms and by this time our company was in sight close by 
her[e] as we said h[e1re comes our assistence and you may See them we were 
Determined Not to be treated as the other two men were by him we wanted 
nothing more then what was right for us to have he cooled Down and he 
invited us to ask the men to come in and he gave to each man a pound of 

gowder ball and flint And we retu[r]ned that same ni^t to Belfast in good 
pints the next we heard of him the Con. he gather^ up all and went on 
Board a british vessel and left the country and we have not heard from him 
afterward as yet so that what we received we saved. 

1 think it was the same summer it might be a month after this former fray 
took place provisions were very scerce and them that had large families had 
hard comming along with them Mr nichols as much as any one, there was 
three vessels [13] Came into the harbous after noon and he bought two bagv 
of Indian com with Butter he carried from home with him And as it was ni^t 

1916] Plainfidd Church Records 171 

and as he was far from home he said he would leve his com till morning and 
call then and take it, so he went ashore to Mr Millers and Staid over nidit, 
the vessel he left his com and bags in were made prises of and the awer 
vessels likewise and Nichols could neither Receive bam nor com, this mans 
name that made prises of these vessels is James CurgiU an Amirican he came 
not weak handed for we were but few in numb^ in comperison to him and 
his two hundred men that he brou^t on board the three vessels he had taken, 
^en he came to the fort point at the mouth of Penobscut River near to where 
the fort stood and bumed it to ashes, now whan Curgill was here and burned 
the fort that Stood about Eight miles from where I lived when in Belfast I 
saw Mr Nichols Soon after he had been so served by being Robed of his com 
and BagBj he said if he ever comes within the length of my arm off sabb[a]th 
Dav I w[i]ll blacken his eye for him so I saw no more of nor heard anything 
of him till the next summer, and he came then poor and baging for our 
assistence to try to Set him clear from what he had so unright^usly Done, 
and whan he burnt the fort but insted of our assisting him if we had been 
caled into a court of justice we must have been as evidence against him, I 
sp^Jce with him and Mr Houston they said they were going to Mr. Clans 
and in a short time after Nichols came along, he appeared to be in a great 
hurry he asked if I saw Curgill I said I Did see Um and Houston going to 
darks and he went on quick the next I heard of them Nichols ad^ed Cuj^pU 
to come to the Dooar and about the first, Nichols with his fist nodct curgill 
Down and blaken his eye as he said tho hotiston and Claris was there and they 
prevented nichols from having his will on curgill, and I have heard no more 
about CurgUl after, nor for burning the fort nor for taking our enemarican 
[nc\ vessels and frusterateing the owners of there entendea desire 

I mention these circumstances to Showe the Spirit of the times and some 
of the trials the inhabitents enduered I will mention one circumstance took 
place to show the Spirit of [aie] Coll. gouldthroit before mention had one of 
my neighbouers came here a Mr Stimpson the only man that was in the 
vecinity Aft[er] I he came here to live hear [14] To Belfast to assist him at 
the fort and with others in the vicinity were under the Cols. Subjection and 
Did pretty much as he said — one Day when the Conl. was at Stimsons on 
a visit towards night his cattle came about the house he walked out to see the 
cattle he fixed his eye on one that was soperior to any other and swore him 
out of his beautifull young cow he said he would Send two men in the morning 
and take her away and cept her and never gave him axiy pay for her not 
withstanding Stimpson was a poor man and had harde giung along without 
being Robed of his best young cow and he being a poor man could ill Spare 
her and many others arbitrary things the Col. did previous to our going and 
Demanding itte amminition at the fort —

The Quinebaug Plantation, in what is now Windham Co., Conn., 
was incorporated as a town in May 1699, and at a town meeting held 
on the last day of that month the town government was organised. 

172 Plainfidd Chiarch Becarda [April 

In Oct. 1700 the Governor of the Colony named the new town 

The people of this region, including the present towns of Plainfield 
and Cant^bury, from time to time since the coming of the first 
settlers, about 1650, had held religious meetings, sometimes on the 
east side and sometimes on the west side of the Quinebaug River. 
At the first town meeting, on 31 May 1699, it was voted : '^To give 
the Rev. Mr. Coit a call for one quarter of a year for ten pounds.'' 
This call was accepted, and Rev. Joseph Coit preached in the town 
during the summer. On 6 Sept. 1699, at a town meeting legally 
warned, it was voted: ''that wee should Still Indevour to have the 
Gospel preached amongst us; " and on the same day it was also voted : 
''that we should Indeavour to gett the Reverend m^ Coit to remain 
another quarter of a year with us for that end." On 18 Sept. 1699 
Mr. Coit gave a receipt for the sum of £10. Several times thereafter 
Mr. Coit was asked to remain for longer or shorter intervals; and 
on 3 Jan. 1704/5 a church, consisting of ten men, was organized, 
and he was ordained as its pastor. No record, however, of the 
organization of the church, the covenant, or the ordination has been 

Mr. Coit remained as pastor until he was dismissed at his own 
request on 16 Mar. 1747/8, Rev. David Rowland succeeding him and 
serving as pastor from 17 Mar. 1747/8 to 23 Apr. 1761. A Separate 
Church had been organized at Plainfield in 1746. Its adherents 
objected to being taxed for the support of the minister of the First 
Church, and the religious dissensions in the town embittered the later 
years of the aged Mr. Coit's pastorate. The number of those at- 
tached to the Separate Church increased until they included the 
greater part of the people of the town. In 1760 two ecclesiastical 
societies covering the same territory were authorized in Plainfield, the 
older society to have two thirds of the annual rate and the Separate 
Church to have one third. Religious strife, however, still continued, 
until in 1769 the parish tax was abolished, and the adherents of the 
Separate Church returned to the First Church, Rev. John Fuller being 
installed as pastor of the reunited societies on 3 Feb. 1769. After the 
death of Mr. Fuller, 3 Oct. 1777, the church had for several years no 
settled pastor; but on 23 Dec. 1784 Rev. Joel Benedict, who received 
later the degree of Doctor of Divinity, was installed over the church 
and served as its pastor until his death on 13 Feb. 1816. It was not 
until Feb. 1820, some six months after the date of the latest entry in 
the records which are printed below, that Rev. Orrin Fowler entered 
upon the pastorate over this church. 

Prior to 23 July 1747 the records of the First Church were not kept 
separately, but were entered only in the books of the town. Below is 
given a verbatim copy of the church records from 23 July 1747 to 
22 August 1819. In the original records no explanation is to be found 
of the various letters or abbreviations which sometimes precede or 
follow the names, such as x, dd, d.d., o.d.d., etc.

HxTBBABD. — According to Austin's Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, 
p. 106, Samuel Hubbard was bom in 1610. son of James and grandson of Thomas, 
and says of himself: " I was bom of kooq parents, my mother brought me up in 
the fear of the Lord, in Mendelsham," etc. From Rev. A. W. Darwin, M.A., of 
Stonham Aspal Rectory, Stowmarket, co. Suffolk, Eng., Honorary Secretary of 
the Suffolk Institute of Archeology, I have received the followmg records of 
Hubbard baptisms taken from the puish registers of Mendlesham, co. Suffolk. 
Although they do not include the baptismal record of Samuel Hubbsrd, they gave 
the baptisms of a daughter and two sons of James, the sons being prooablv 
brothers of Samuel, and of two children of Thomas, who was probably the grand- 
father of Samuel. No further Hubbard baptisms were found in the Mendlesham 
registers of that period.

Humphbet-Otlbt. — It is known that AH aid Otley of Lynn, Majss.^ married a 
dau^^ter of John Humphrey, and the following record shows that this daughter 
was Elisabeth: 

1 August 1648. Administration on the goods of Adam OUey, late in parts 
beyond the sea, was granted to Elisabeth, nis relict. (P.C.C, Administration 
Act Book, 1648, fo. 92.) 

Harwood-Chaffeb-Knollts. — "A list of Non-CJonformists and other 
Dangerous Persons/' dated about 1662-63 (Domestic State Papers, Miscellane- 
ous, no. 26), contains the following passages (quoted) referring to three early 
Massachusetts pioneers: 

'J_Harwood Jo. a Merct at Mile end Green, a factious dangerous Independt & y« 
comon Factor for all y« Merch^ Tradeing eroecially to N. Engkl who uses con- 
stantly to cou' & disguise y« shipps. Goods & persons of those of yt Opinion in

his interest and mony corrupted to slipp y OaUis w«^ otherwise ought to be 
tendred to all persons going out, Ac. M' Scott." 

This is undoubtedly the John Harwood who wrote to Job Lane of Maiden, 
Mass., from Bednall (i.e., Bethnal] Green, 18 Feb. 1665/6. (See Reoibtbr, vol. 
11, p. 108.) He was of Boston in 1645, was admitted to the church in 1647, and 
became freeman in 1649. He sold his estate in 1657, says Savage, to brother 
Thomas Scottow, and went back to Eng^nd, where he was Uving in London in 
1677. His will, dated 13 Nov. 1684 and proved in the Prerogative Gourt of 
Canterbury 22 June 1685, may be seen in abstract in the Rsgistbr, vol. 42,

pp. 64-05. Bethnal Green and Mile End Green were formerly parts of the parish 
01 Stepney, in the eastern part of London. 

" Chaffey, a New Eng^d Preacher lives and meets in Wapping." 
Matthew Chaffee, 8hii> carpenter, is first mentioned in the New £2ngLand 
records when he was admitted to the First Church in Boston, 7 Aug. 1636. He 
was freeman in 1637, a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company 
in 1642, and bought a farm at Newbury, Mass., in 1649. On 10 Aug. 1655 he and 
his wife [Sarah] were dismissed from the First Church in Boston, and no further 
record of him in New Endand has been found. In the will of Tnomas Taylor of 
Wapping, CO. Middlesex, Eng., shipwright, dated 15 Dec. 1658 and proved 10 Jan. 
1658/9, there is a bequest of £5 to ''Master Mathew Chafey:''* and, with one 
Rob^ Lambe, he was to dispose of £5 left to the church of Christ in Wapping.

Hansard KnoUys is said to have been bom at CawkweU, co. Lincoln, in 1598. 
He came to New England about 1638, was an adherent of Mrs. Anne Hutchinson, 
and removed to Piscataqua, where he signed the Combination in 1640. He 
returned to England in 1641 and was mentioned in 1658 in the will of Thomas

Leverett. — In Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of New England, vol. 3, p. 
84, a list is given of thirteen children of Elder Thomas^ Leverett ofBoeton, Mass., 
with the dates of their baptisms in Boston, co. Lincoln, Eng. This list of bap- 
tisms is said to have been sent to Gov. John' Leverett by a friend as an attested 
copy of the entries in the registers of the English Boston. Of these thirteen 
children Savage believed that all but the third, foiirth. and sixth died young, for 
it is known t^t only John, Jane, and Anne are found in New Endand records. 
The attention of the Editor has been called to the printed parish re^sters of 
Boston, Eng., 1557-1638, recently published by the Lincoln Record Society; and 
from them it is possible to correct a few errors in the dates as dven by Savage and 
to supply the burial records of eight of the thirteen children, the two sons Tnomas 
and James being still unaccounted for. The printed registers show also that the 
wife of Elder Thomas Leverett was Anne Fitche, and not Anne Fisher, as the name 
is ^ven in the Leverett Memorial (Boston, 1856), p. 24, and in the pedigree 
facmg p. 289 of vol. 12 of the Register. The facts disclosed by the Leverett 
entries in the parish registers of Boston, Eng., prior to 1639, are as follows: 


1612 John son of Thomas Leveritt gent' 16 August. 

1613 Jane daughter of Tho. Leuerett 9 August. 

1614 Jane daughter of Thomas Leveritt 6 January [1614/15].

WHTrnNOHAM-HAUGH. — In his will, proved 27 Mar. 1649, John Whittingham 
of Ipswich, Mass., calls Samuel Haugh, son of Atherton EEaugh of Boston, Mass., 
and later minister at Reading, Mass., his brother. The following entries in the 
parish registers of Boston, Eng.^ explain the relationship between John Whitting- 
nam and Samuel Haugh, and give the baptisms of the two: 

1616 John son of Richard Whitingham gent' christened 29 September. 

1617 Atherton Haulgh and Elizabeth Whittingham widdow married 9 January 


1621 Samuell son of Atherton Haulgh christened 23 December. 

These records, together with the will of Richard Whittingham "of Sutterton 
in the parts of Holland, in the County of Lincoln, gentleman," an abstract of 
which IS printed in the Reqister, vol. 39, pp. 171-172, prove that John Whit- 
tingham was not a son of Baruch Whittingnam, as has oeen stated at various 
times (see especiallv Rboisteb, vol. 34, p. 36, with doubts expressed by the late 
John Coffin Jones Brown, i&., vol. 39, p. 172), but that he was a son of the afore- 
said Richard. They prove also that Elizabeth, Richard's widow, who was a 
daughter of Rev. Edward Bulklev, D.D., of Odell, oo. Bedford, and a sister of 
Rev. Peter Bulkley of Concord, Mass., married Atherton Haugh of Boston, Eng., 
later of Boston, Mass., and that Samuel Haugh, their son, was therefore a hSd 
brother of John Whittingham. who calls him brother in his will. Rev. Peter 
Bulkley in his will, dated 14 Apr. 1658, calls Mr. Samuel Haugh his ''cousen" 
(Rboisteb, vol. 10, p. 168). 

It may be added that these parish registers of Boston, Eng., contain also entries 

gsrtaining to the Hutchinsons and to the Farwells, families well-known in New 


KiTTERY AND BERWICK (Me.) Land Grants. — The Maine Historical Societv 
has two manuscript books, which attempt to accoimt for the laying out of lands 
in Kitterv and Berwick to the original settlers or their heirs or assigns. The 
older book appears to have been used for current entries imtil it became crowded 
and interlined. The second book, dated 1764, is in part a fair tabulation of the 
contents of the first. These books appear to be a field untouched by any thorough 
genealogist. For instance, the following entry is found: ''Mav 6, 1702. To 
John Heard confirmation]ali that land granted to his grandfather Abranm Conley.^' 
This reveals the much sought parentage of Shuah, wife of Ensign James Heard, 
who married secondly Richard Otis.

Sanderson (Saunderson). — A comparison of the original will of Elizabeth 
Sanderson, widow of Robert of Boston, goldsmith, dated 15 Sept. 1694 andproved 
21 Nov. 1695, with the contemporarv recorded copy of this will in Suffolk Probate 
Records, vol. 13, fo. 264, discloses the fact that the name Alice Beard appears in 
the copy in place of the name Abia Beard, which is given in the original wiU. The 
will of Robert Saunderson, dated 18 July and prov^ 20 Oct. 1693, contains a 
bequest of £5 to ''great grand daughter Abiah Beard" (Rbqister, vol. 52, p. 23).

Watkqib JjEttmbb, — Accordins to the Vital Records of Newbury, Mass., John 
Watkins married, 28 Oct. 1746, Ehsabeth Hale, evidently the Elisabeth Hale who 
was bom 17 July 1722, daughter of Nathan and EUsibeth (Kent), and whose 
death (as Elisabeth Watldns, widow, aged 78yearB)» found in the Newburyport 
Vital Records under date of 10 JuJbr 1801. John Watkins died 5 June 1759, as 
the first letter printed bdow shows. Their children are entered in the Vital 
Records of Newburv as follows: i. Dorothy, b. 26 July 1747; d. 6 Sept. 1747. ii. 

Nathan, b. 27 Dec. 1755: d. 21 Sept. 1756. viii. Andrew, b. 6 Mar. 1757. 
The nve letters vHliich tdlow have been copied from origmal letters now in the 

possession of Miss Mary Tllton Palmer oT Brooldine, Mass. The first letter 
contains a somewhat quaint announcement to Mrs. Elisabeth Watkins of the 
death of her husband, and the other letters, from Andrew Watkins to his brother 
l^niliam, are interesting additions to the writings of the Revc^uticmaiy period.

Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society desires to call special attention to the recommendation in its 
report of 5 May 1914 (see Register, vol. 69, Supplement, pp. xvi-xxiii), **that 
every person interested, by reason of descent or otherwise, in making it a matter 
of record that any original settler in this country inherited a coat of arms or that 
any inhabitant of this country received a grant of arms be invited to offer the 
arms for record with this Society," etc. 

The Committee believes that the importance of the results possible to be 
attained by such registration will be of great interest; and they earnestly request 
all members of the Society and all other persons who have coats of arms wnich 
they believe to be eligible to make application for recording them. The cost of 
painting the arms ana making up the record will have to be defrayed by the ap- 
plicants, and the Committee has determined that $3.00 for each coat ^nll bardy 

This amount, by cheaue payable to the order of the Society, must be forwarded 
with the application. If the application i& rejecte<L the money will be returned 
unless the applicant wishes to have the arms recordea with those respited for proof. 

1916] Recent Books 189 

The Committee, however, reserves the right to reject any application altogether, 
and if this ri^t is exercised, the money will, of course, be returned. 

It seems evident that, besides the ^wth in value of the collection as it increases 
in sixe, there will be many other thmgs of extreme interest contributed with ike 
arms and directly relatea thereto, such as photographs of castles, armor, seals, 
manors, etc., and provision is contemplated for filing such contributions in supple- 
mentary voliunes in connection with the registers of the arms. Applications in 
which the proofs do not sufficiently conform to the requirements indicated in the 
report of tne Committee will be placed in a separate volume to await further 

Printed directions for the making of applications may be obtained from the 
Committee; and all communications on this subject should be addreeeed to the 
Committee on Heraldry, New England Historic Genealogical Society, 9 A^- 
burton Place, Boston. 

Genealogies in Prbpabation. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest that 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service under the U. o. Government, the holding of other offices, grad- 
uation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and dates 
of birth, marriage, residence, and death. All names should be given in JvXL if 
possible. No imtials should be used when the full name is known.

JULY, 1916 


By Ons Gbant Hammond, A.M., of Concord, N.H. 

Jonathan Eastbian Pecker, elected to resident membership in 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society in 1883, made a 
life member in 1905, and Vice-President of the Society from New 
Hampshire for the years 1904-1911, died unmarried at Concord, 
N. H., 12 August 1915. 

He was bom at Concord 28 May 1838, the son of Jeremiah and 
Mary Lang (Eastman) Pecker, and was sixth in descent from James^ 
Pecker of Haverhill and Boston, Mass., through James,' John,* 
James,^ Jeremiah,^ and Jeremiah,* his father. His great-grand- 
father, Maj. James Pecker of Haverhill, Mass., was a surgeon in the 
Continental Army, and died at Valley Forge in 1778 from exposure 
and exhaustion, caused by his efforts to relieve those who were suffer- 
ing no more, perhaps, than himself. His grandfather, Jeremiah 
Pecker, was for a lifetime a very prominent citizen of Concord, and 
most acceptably fulfilled the duties of many public offices bestowed 
upon him by his fellow townsmen. Through his mother, Mary 
Lang Eastman of Concord, Colonel Pecker was descended from 
Capt. Ebenezer Eastman, one of the first settlers of Concord, and 
conmiander of a company in the expedition against Louisburg in 
1745, and his maternal grandfather, Capt. Jonathan Elastman, was 
paymaster in Colonel Ripley's regiment of the United States Army 
in the War of 1812. 

Colonel Pecker's early life was clouded and his prospects affected, 
at the age of nine years, by the death of his father. But, through the 
wisdom of his mother and his own efforts, his education was not 
neglected. He was prepared for college in the schools of Concord, 
and was graduated at Dartmouth College, in the Chandler Scientific 
Department, in the Class of 1858, receiving the degree of Bachelor 
of Science. After graduation he taught school for a few years at 
f^t Concord, Penacook, and Salisbury, N. H., at the same time 
reading law. He did not, however, apply for admission to the bar, 
but abandoned law for journalism, a more congenial profession, and 
one for which he knew himself to be better adapted. 

In 1861 he joined the staff of the Boston Journal as New Hamp- 
shire reporter, having done some casual work for that paper during 

VOL. LXX, 13 

196 Jonathan Eastman Pecker [July 

and after his college course. This connection proved to be the 
chief work of his life, and continued for thirty-five years. In 1872 
he established the New Hampshire News Bureau, and became the 
chief correspondent of the Journal in New Hampshire, continuing 
in this position until 1896, when the management and policy of the 
paper were changed and this department was abolished. At times 
he contributed also to the New York Tribune and the New York 

In the Civil War, when troops were being raised and sent into the 
field, he accompanied nearly every New Hampshire regiment to the 
front, and was with Governor Berry and his staff in Virginia in 1861. 
His work on these occasions established his position in the field of 
journalism. After the War he travelled extensively as a journalist 
in the South and West and in Mexico; but the abundant material 
in New Hampshire politics and public affairs chiefly occupied his 
attention, and his able work in these lines was largely instrumental 
in establishing the Journal as the household paper of the State. 

Cobnel Pecker's military title was deriv^ from his commission 
as a member of the staff of Gov. Benjamin F. Prescott, and he 
afterwards served Gov. Natt Head in the same capacity. His in- 
terest in military affairs was always keen, and he was a member of 
General White's Brigade Staff Association, the Third Regiment 
Staff Association, and an honorary member of the New Hampshire 
Veterans' Association. He was also deeply intere^d in historical 
and genealogical matters, and besides his membership in the New 
Engird Historic Genealogical Society he was a member of the New 
Hampshire Historical Society and an honorary member of the 
Kansas State Historical Society. He was also a member of Blazing 
Star Lodge of Freemasons of Concord, a charter member of the 
Merrimack County Pomona Grange of the Patrons of Husbandry, 
secretary of the Merrimack County Agricultural Society for many 
years, and an honorary member of the New Hampshire Press Asso- 

His religious affiliations were Episcopalian, and he was a conmiuni- 
cant of the Church of the Advent in Boston. Very largely through 
his efforts and his generous donations a mission church has been built 
in East Concord, near his old homestead. In this old house of his 
forefathers, built in 1755, he kept his extensive library, largely of New 
Hampshire history, though he also delighted in books descriptive of 
Canada, the Southwest, Mexico, and other scenes of his travels. 

By devoted attention to the interests of his paper, by economy, 
and by wise investments Colonel Pecker was able to retire from active 
journalism in 1896 with a comfortable provision for his declining years, 
and to devote the remainder of his life to the collection of books. 
His knowledge of Americana was accurate and extensive, and in 
pursuit of a rare volume he was indefatigable. To Dartmouth Col- 
lege he was intensely loyal, and by his will he left to that institution 
all his books relating to the state, county, and town history of New 
Hampshire, the most valuable part of his library, that they might 
be preserved as a memorial of his greatest pleasure in life and of 
his affection for his college and his native State.

Thomas Andros joined the Revolutionary Army at the 
age of sixteen, and took part in the Battle of Long Island 
and the Battle of White Plains. In 1781 he enlisted in New 
LfOndon on a privateer which was captured by the British, 
and he was confined on the Jersey, the notorious prison ship 
at New York. A few months later he escaped in a manner 
almost miraculous, and he has told vividly the story of his 
experiences in a httle book, now rare, called "The Old Jersey 
Captive." After his return to Plainfield and the recovery 
of his health he studied theology in Plainfield with Rev. 
Joel Benedict, and was ordained minister at Berkley, Mass., 
in 1788, remaining in charge of the church there for forty-six 
years. His annual stipend was £80, and it was not in- 
creased during all the time of his ministry. To eke out his 
slender salary he taught navigation for many years. He 
was the father of seventeen children, four of whom became 
successful navigators and commanded some of the largest 
ships that sailed out of Providence and New York. (See 
Sanford's History of Berkley, Mass.)

[To be oonoluded] 

1916] Beminisemeea of John Davidaon 28S 



Ck>mmumcated by Altbbd Johnson, Idtt. D., of Biooldine, Mi 

[Ck>iicluded from page 171J 

In Sept. 1778 we had a report brought by two friend Indians From canida 
to our field oficers that indianes and tories commanded by britich officers 
ware coming Down on three rivers viz. St. Johns Penobscuts and Cannebeck 
and they were coming so numirous as to take and Drive all before them that 
would not take the oath of alejence to king gorge and they would be amungst 
us by the time the leaves of the trees woiud be as large as a man thumb nale 
the next Springy we the inhabitents of Belfast had conjectuered that if Such 
forces were comm on such buiseness there would be a fleat to meet them at the 
mouth of the rivers to Eade and asist thine [nc] land forceses with what they 
stood in need of according to what we had thought of when we saw the fleet 
of English vessels in the harboiir before us and the land f orses on our becks and 
we though to [w]eak and few in number and no whare to fly to, we four 
fammilyes Shiped our Selves on bourd a Small two mast boat thinkine to 
come to long island rother then to stay on the mane land to be mescreea by 
the Indians lor[62o<] and I know not what but the wind Drove us back and we 
went to Mr nichols to garrison for the house was made of kurger logs and 
would turn a musket ball better, 

we Did not stay there meny Days, for we heard some of the men of Belfast 
had been as a flagotruce to know what they wished for thir answer was, they 
wished to have what we could Spare of provision and they would pay the 
money for for it what the^ wisht for further that we would lie as nuterls [15] 
And not fight for nor agamst them, this Story Pleased us so well so we went 
to colectting our pots lattles and putter from where we hid them, we began 
to think by this tune all the newes we had received were Tory news, and so 
we went to work tho that Did not last long for the next thursday I received 
a proclamation that all the male members must come on Board our Ship and 
take the oath of alegians to king gorge or abide the consequence what that 
would be I knew not. what could I do I took the proclamation the Sun being 
about two hours and a half high at night I felt resolved that every man in 
town should see or hear this paper before I slept, and lucky I was, when I 
came to the personage I found two men there, that belonged to too other 
Different parts of the Town and by our taking a little trouble on us that 
evening and Desired we Should be at the pasnage as soon as posable after 
Breakfast to try to conclude on what is best to Do in respect of Moets proc- 
lamation, in the morning, in the first place we met to a man and what to Do 
we knew not, in the s[e]cond place there was no road to treavel on for between 
thirty and forty miles if there had been a roads we could not have come that 
way for we had large familys of women and children and we could not carry 
provision to serve us on the road, and it was not to be had on that way, for 
there was neither, folk, victueb, monejr, nor way to treavel on, and we 
continued there till about noon and nothmg Done nor like to be, I spoak and 
said I had a log canoe and before I would go and take the oath of alegence I 
would take my wife and 3 little children into it and try to com away so so 
Capt Solon Stephenson said if you go in that way I will go with you, we will 
Start, in the night, can we not by what David Miller and your son calib can 
Do help us so as to Drive our homed cattle away and so we concluded to come 
away in the next night from Belfast 

so I went home and informed m^ family of what I had in view or thou^ts 
of doing was from one oclock Fnday tiU almost Dark next Day and then 

234 Bemini8eenc6$ of John Davidson [July 

Started on our Expected tedeous Journey or voige, the young men Did not 
nioov the cattle till next nioming and then they could not com along till they 
hired a man to help to Drive them, and as we were runing of my canoe from 
Ductrap harbour we Discovered the young men coming on, to the beech to 
cross a large cove as the tide was out [16] Cap Said he would Stay and see 
how or wheather they had all the Cattle with them or not, you had best keep 
along and i will soon overtake you. so I laft him and soon after Dailight was 
veamshed and gone there arose a black and windy clowd and we out to sea 
and we without a pilot and herbour. how happy I should have been, to have 
been out of sound of the Swelling Billowes bursting on the flinty rocks tho the 
Sound was all I Knew at that tune I had to keep us from being Da^ed and 
so to have had watery graves, if such a canoe load of pasangers were ever at 
sea and continued so all night untill morning, and then come ashoar all Safe 
and well, I cannot be a judg of the feelings of others no better then what I 
have before Experinced, therefore I think I never can thank and prays him 
anough for his Protecting arm that Did not let that night be oiu* bust night, 
but is yet pertecting and preserving and upholding me and mine and how 
undeserving we are of all these marcies he is bestoing on us every Day of our 

While, we had any expectation of our pilot coming to help or Shoe us the 
way there Seemed to be sumthing to incourage us but we lost all that hope 
for we though[t] he was Lost at sea for his canoe was less than ours for he said 
he came about half the way thrugh he thoug[ht] he thought we weare Cast 
away and it apeared he would have his canoe filled and he had hard work to 
keep her above the water and he turned and went beck to Ducktrap and on 
the nex day he came with the young men and cattle O what |oy and rejoising 
there was, Stevenson at the sight of seeing us and we at 8eei[n]g him, 

now we have to go to Ducktrap for what Stephenson leift] in his canoe we 
were befriended So we obtained the loan of a two mast boat So as to run to 
D[u]cktr[a]p harbur which we went there in a very Short th[i]me tho it took 
us all night to rowe back against the wind and tide and after breakfast we 
gathered our teames together gat our loading on the Slad and all we advcnced 
that Day was three miels to a Dutchmans house and we had So bad coming 
along that first 3 miles as we heard of a cart theree miles forward, the capt. 
and myself went to obtain the lone of it to Carry our load on to Georges river, 
our Desire was granted in the morning the capt took his oxin and went after, 
the cart and I took mine and went after what he left when we left Camdom 
and we came together and put our loading on the cart [17] . . . and came as 
fer as gegries where it three miles it was very bad treaveling for man beast 
and cart, when we came to the bam Doar the owner was there and he Swong 
them open and lett us in it was in good Season for it then began to rain a good 
rain a good Shower and the bam capt us and our loading Dry and we Staid 
there all of us ten in number over mght, and that Day we came Six miles to 
Mr John Dillaways Just such a man woman Fammily and place that our 
necessety caled for took our sixteen head of homed cattle put them into his 
pastauar turned his to the woods and as he informed me when I went after my 
cattle he said he had them to gather to wont them so we left with him six 
oxen and five cows and a few young cattle, we had to send the cart back to 
gregoryes, this the young men Did, and in there abcence we were helping to 
contrive to help to load a small vessel with wood that belongeg to Boston and 
in a very Short time the young men retu[r]ned with the oxen, and we in a 
short time could be ready to come on board the small schooner and make a 
push for Boston, oiir younge calf being about old anough for a veal I thought, 
it to be a suitable time to take it along with us and perhaps it would do us as 
much good on board the vessel as it ever would, so we took it on board and 
we found it a good morcel to help to langthen out other provisions so we ten 
same [nc, ? came] on board the &hooner and came D[o]wne the river and put 

1916] Beminiscences of John DaioidBon 235 

to sea, but the wind being light and scant, we put into a harbour and we found 
in that harbour Capt, Harakill commandor of a lar^ top»ail sloop lat[e]ly 
from the west indian islands his vesel was loaded with wood and bound to 
Boston they had a good orue of hends four Swevets on board and aminition 
and provision in plenty, the commenders of these two vessels being acquainted 
with Each other, Capt. Harschill was well prepared for wor to wl^t our Capt. 
Mcclening was notwithstanding he concented to keep by and Defend us from 
boats or from that of trifling force as we could not defend omselves for we 
were of no force we came Down the river and then to sea hav8k[i]ll perhaps 
being one Mild ahed of our vessel we obsoverred a boat as we thought rowing 
towards that large sloop [18] . . . and in a few minnits we Discovered a 
swivle Discharged and then another and then the Small armes, as soon as 
Haskill Desist^ from firein^ they Sprung to there owers and rowed of as 
quick as they could, tho while Harakill was fireing in on them they Dropt 
Down in the botom of the boat and then pooled away heartily 

whan We saw trouble ahead we put about and run into townseans h[a]rbour 
and HearskiU came in after us and we ^ as one conjectured that the boat that 
Herskill beat off belonged to a vessel on the other side of the iland Sogwin and 
if we should attemp[t] to go by they would out and take us all^ so we were all 
confined in towneand harbour for some Days and a good fair wmd as we could 
have wisht for and after Staying for some time and could not here of enimies 
vessels being along Shoar we ventured to Sea and as we wear going from the 
harbour we Discovered three large vessels at a greate Distence from the land 
which we took to be Enemies vessels but being at so large a distance from the 
kmd that we thought we could dyng close by it and keep out of their way, it 
was clowdy when we went from the hiurbour it began to rain and continued 
So for some time imd it was Dark waiter that we could not see them till it 
cleared off a Httle and the first we saw of any of them was one of them so in 
our way it would have had us but Thanks to good Providence that Portland 
harbour was so neigh to us when we were chased by the enemy that we had 
Such a place of refuge to fly into, and kept us secuer in that place from thurs- 
day to the next monday evening which then we left it then for choise, 

on monday morning I began to feel as tho we aught to be a contriving to 
Set for the wes[t]ward and I Spoak to Capt Steph[e]nrs]on about it, he thou^t 
it would Do no good the masters of the vasscds had oeen to the commanding 
oficers of the forts and fortifications, he said there is a chance, to take that 
canoe and cheteh a few fresh fish my answer was you and the other two young 
men may go and try your lluck of fishing and I will go across the harbour and 
try what my luck will be, so I croosed the phenr and I found the commending 
[19] Oficer of the Place I endaviorered to inform him what I wist for, his 
answer was it is more then my commision is worth he said I would be glad 
to help you but it deth not tho you may go by land I told him we could not 
go so for we had womin and children and nothing to buy horses and carriges 
with I thought it was as well to be plain hearted as any way I said what would 
be the consequnce sopose I Should agree with some one and come away 
privitly in the night and say but little about it, he said if you have a mind to 
trry that you mist be pretty Still about it and not Express your mind to anv 
but them you know to be your friends and espesilar me for I am under oath 
he said he would be glad to halp me if he couLa, so I felt as much gratifyed by 
him as I Did Expe[c]t to be and more so, so I left him and came to where I 
found men Stancung idle and no buisionses going on for it was a little before 
that that Portland was burned it was a v^ maUtncoly time chimneys stand- 
ing and houses burned and gone, by this time I thought it was time for me to 
say something about what I set out for as there was a considerable number of 
men 1 spake to them all in Jeneral and said can any of you inform me who has 
bread com to sell the answer was no there is none to be had in town I sade 
why Do you not go to the westward and buy some, there was one young man 

236 Reminiseencea of John Damdson [July 

Seemed to answer me most I think his name is Joseph rigs I took him aside 
I asked him if he would Set out to go to the westward if there wes no imbargo 
in the way he said he thougt he should I said and if you feel willing to stiut 
tonight before morning and run the venter of your Self and boat, and I will 
Rin the resk of myself and family and pay you what is reasonable when we 
come to Newbuiyport he said he would go and be back quick and he was as 
good as his word and so he returned and said he would endeaviour to go, and 
said I will come here ... to the boat by ten oclock or as soon as the people 
begins to be still I told him I would endeavour to come at that time 

[20] So I returned to my family and informed them we were a going to start 
in a boat about ten oclock or as soon as people are still I told him I would 
endeavior to come at that time to the boat, or a little before and we set and 
waited till we thought it a suitable time and then we cast of from the worf 
and there we were, we had no wind to sail with but being heigh wather the 
tide saged us from the mouth of the harbour and abought Daybrak or about 
that time the wind began to blow and continued so at Northeast untill it 
brought us a little past Portsmouth in the li^ht of that Day, and when about 
opposet to Portsmouth we Discovered a Ship lyeing without the bar, as we 
thought but when we came neigher the bar we found She was inside and 
we knew not what to Do, while we thought she, the ship was outside the barr we 
flatered our selves we could all huids come on board the ship, Drop the boat 
as[t]eam the ship and all would be well but when we found the ship was within 
we knew not what to Do — we were af eared we would overrun our object but 
we had good knowing Men on boutl they got 4 oars into the rowlocks and 
four men hold of them, and one man Stood by and Steeded himself by the 
mast and another Stood on his Shoulders, he that was heigest he was to look 
out for breakers and he, all at once. Sang out breakers ahead, he said which 
way to brring her about She was runing on to the north breaker we rowed a 
little further Southardly and let run our grapling for we had not an anker to 
ride buy, and there it was when the waves would burste in to the boat we had 
a wellrune* and a bucket and we would throw it out as fast as it came in and 
so we Stood it all night and in the morning we could See the way in over the 
barr and we arived to newbmyport about Sunrise all safe only the women 
being seasick the Day and night before and had not got it heardly over the 
Day we run from Portland to newbury barr the women lost their bonets at 
Sea in Daylight the sea and the wind being high and rough we could not save 
them our boat we came in from Portland to newbury Port was a morses boat 
she had been cut intoo and made longer She had no Deck . . . She had a 
cuddy fore and aft [21] . . . this was the thirtieth Day of June 1779 . . . 
She was full of Dry fish before we fourteen of us pcwengers came on board 
which I thought caused hur to be heavy loaded ... if the Almighty had not 
been on our right and on our left hand the s[e]cond night after we left belfast 
and the night we lay at newbury barr it apeares there was nothind in the pour 
of man to help us . . . 

we staid at newbury port from about simrise till about noon and then 
mooved for heverhill and came no further then Russels pherrey and we Staid 
in the boat over night and it was a cold one the tide tur[n]ed against us and 
we could come no further till next morning and the tide turned in our f aviour 
and soon run [22] ... to haverhll Town 

I Stepeted up into the street to see if I could see any one from windham and 
I foimd Mr John Dinsmoor Esqr idmost ready to start for Windham with an 
ox cart and no load to carry and he took us on board when we wished to ride 
and weated on us as far as Deacon Samuel Morrisons in Windham Range and 
we came there, and staid at old Mr Willims Thoms over night in the morning 
it was wet and lowring. I walked as far as My Fathers house and he took

his two horses and came with me and helpt me with my family to his house, 
this was the ninth [?] Day of July 1779 

parhaps you may think we have come past all our Trouble but now we 
have to be^^ the world anew and if I had of my proporty I left at Bdf ast 
I should have a good beginning without the land, yes of fanning utentials 
and househould furniture we had would with sheep and swineh^ been a 
great Relieaf to us but what youse is it to repeat these thing over again and 
naver be recowled and nothing in lue for them When the Enemy came into 
Belfast harbour that was our trouble if we could have been transported to a 
land of peace and out of the way of war in a day or two we would have thought 
our selves happy but this was not the case for while we were on our ^i^t we 
felt happy we were so much further from the Enemy and we hed not tmie to 
think of what we lost at the Eastward and so we laid it aside as much as we 
could, it being a good time of the year for the labouring man to have Employ 
and I could have as much of that as cept me in employ for the greater part of 
my time and so I Earned Simithing in that way and when out of a Jobb I 
would go abord and buy Clooth and thr^d and whan I had taken in so as to 
be sociScent to go a pedling I would go abroad and sell and so I went on in 
these ways till Septbr. 

then my Brother Jesse and myself bought a prety good lot of clooth and 
therad and hired a hors between us to go after my cattle to Tohomas town 
near georges River at Mr John Sillaways we could ride one at a time all the 
way Down and found the cattle all in good order and able for there joumy 
all stood it well and I mad[e] as much as cleared the expence [23] Of horse 
keeping and hire that is my half, so I Disposeed of two cowes and one calf 
I sold one for money and the other and calf I put for a hors Sadie and bridle 
he was a large and a good one called bv the man I had had him off and so he 
was and as long as grass lasted but when that was Done he had to leave of 
work for he could not Eat hay the cowes I put to him was old and sumthing 
tiered of treavling and I hope we made somthing of an even tread, I broui^t 
four oxen two cowes to my Fathers in Windham and three heffers and the old 
horse that Did not turn to a very good account I had to Sell my largest oxen 
for paper money and when i recieved the pay for them it would not have 
brought more then one cow I lost in the value of two cowes in that tread by 
the Deprusiation of money or his neglect of pa3ring according to agreement 
I bught a pai of young cattle from Mr John hilinds Father and agred to pay 
him for the oxen in about six months from the Date of the note according just 
as it reads in the face of the note the nominal sume and that halpt to make up 
Some of the former Depnisiations good 

The next Spring Apnel 1780 I bought a small Farm in Windham in gould- 
ing rowe and it cost me as much as five hindred and nine Dollars hard money 
the building were miserabley poor tho we moovd into the house uncomfortable 
as it was and lived there we were between fourteen and fifteen years in the 
house we had three sons and two Daughters bom in that house and wothout 
much r[e]pair and there we were a very poor family and in debt for my land 
and could Scercly raise provision so as to Supplv the fanmilyj to think of 
buil[d]ing would be vain but as necesity has no law, I was obliged to build 
a Small bam, and then I could co [«ic,7 sow] better then before for we could 
Save what we raised. 

after we built the bam I conjectured old Mr Brown must sell his farm soon 
and if I could buy his sixty acres as it lieth along by my forty and had the 
Name of being veery good land they two would inake a farm we could Make 
a living on and I would Sell my land at the Eastward and not to go back to 
belfast as it is a place Uiat will alwajrs b[e] exposed in time of war to trouble 
not a long time after this there was a vandow m [24] Pelhem not far from our 
house and I Atended and old Mr James Brittan esqr was master of the worke 
and a very good friend of mine I informed him in tune of intermiaion of what 

238 Beminisomces of John Davidson [July 

I had thought of Doing in respect of bu3ang Broons ferm, so Do John you 
ought to have it it will Suit you and I will hdp you I said I would be glad to 
have it can you not come here and stay over night and try to see what you 
can Do in the morning he said he would so he cam and in the morning he went 
to See the old folks he the Sqr. said he would be gladd to have the money you 
owe me and and I D[o] not see but I must have it Broon said he could not 
nay it till he sold his farm Britton said you can sel it to Day if you wissh to 
John Davidson will buy it, so they sent for me, and we began and finished, 
writings and all were concluded before Dark, 

now my friends by this time you are ready to say you have been very 
fortunate I think we have so fer, now if we can be so fortunate to ^t out of 
debt as we have to git into Debt but we cannot expect that^ Tho I think I am 
as willing to try as I was to go into Debt and you have come to your Fathers 
house and you have purchised so much land and all very hendy to carry on 
I know I owe a large Some of money but it is not so bad as tho I had not the 
valine the Brownns lot costs Seven hundred and fifty Dollars hard money^, 
one lot of nieadow the first I bought of Thomas Willson I had it for about six 
acres for Ninteen Dollars Sixty six cents a sacond lot of meadow I bought of 
Thomas Willson there was not quite three acres and it coast me Sixty Dollars 
hard money, at that time I thou^t it best to take it althou^ it was Dear 

Now my Dear and imparshal ftiends as I hope, as I have given you a little 
scitch of my coming along in the world as to temperals but as to Spirituels I 
have been more silent, . . . [25] . . . sometime in the year 1777 1 came to our 
Minister Mr Williams for Adnusion to join his church and was admited . . . 
we had our children Baptiesed ... * 

[28] In 1805 Rev. Saml Harrise was ordained Pastor of the church in 
windham and continued Minister of the people in that place for 17 years with 
little success to appearance although he preached the gospell in its Simplicity 
In Feb. 1822 he began to see sume of the fruits of his labour a few individuels 
began to enquire what they must do to be saved amongst the number was my 
son William and a happy time it prooved to be to him and the greatest part 
of the fammily, it appeared about that time we all had by Devine grace our 
eyes opened that we saw the eveil nature of Sin, and the beauty there is in 
a holy life . . . 

[29] After having found Christ precious to my Sule my first inquiry was 
Lord what wilt thou have me to Do I felt it was time to begin to work for 
him as I was now more then three score years and ten and had Done nothing 
I, thought of my Brothers and Sisters and others of my years with whome I 
had been acquainted for many years in windham whome I feared had been 
living the Same way as I had So i could not rest Sattisfied untill I had Seen 
and talked with those on that subject I therefore took my cane and walked 
from house to house untill I had seen them all being absent most three Days 
I thought I could convince them of the error of their ways and show them the 
beauty there is in experimental religion but alass. how weak is man I shoed 
my weakness and how little I could Do I found many of them as hard as 
adament and others I beleive from that Did Set up family pray[e]r8 who had 
neglected it for years I returned home I could only commeend them to 
G(xi whose Spirit alone is able to melt the hardest hardest heart — 

nearly all those aged people with whome I convened with at that time are 
now in their greaves and I am still Spared a living monument of the goodness 
of god It is ten years Sence I hope I began to love Christ and his cause — 
I am 82 years four mon[t]hs old I have always been blesd with good health 
generely as is the case now which is wonderf ull for a person of my age I have 
a good appitite and my food rellishes well I sleep well and am in no pain I

[From the foregoing material and some New England records the following 
pedigree has been compiled: 

The Hatch f&iiiilv has lived for at least six centuries in the coimty of 
Kent, Eng^d. The family name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon noun 
haec, MidcUe English hacche, later hatch, meaning a gate or wicket. Compare 
Shakspere's woids: "In at the window, or else o'er the hatch.'' The sur- 
name appears in the himdred of Calehill. co. Kent, as early as 1327-8, the 
form during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries being atte Hacche. It 
is clear tiiat the name was originally assumed by a man who dwelt near or 
at some gate or wicket, such, for instance, as might have been found at the 
entrance to the village churchyard or to the grounds of the manor house. 
Many family names had a simihu: origin during the reign of Edward I (1272- 
1307). For example, John at the hacche or at y« hacche is termed John atte 
Hacche, William at the well is called WiUiam atte Well, and Thomas at the 
stile is termed Thomae atte Stile, etc. This form of name remained in use 
for about two centuries, until nearly 1500. and then, as a rule, the atte either 
was dropped or was combined with the following word in such names as At- 
mdl, Atwood, etc. 

1. John at Hecche. of Sellinge, in the hundred of Street, co. Kent, the 
testator of 1464, was Dom probably about 1415 and died not earlier than 

15 Nov. 1464. He married Agnes , who was living when his ^rill was 

made. He was probably a miller. He was undoubtedly descended from

some of the Atte Hacches found in the hundred of Calehill, in the subsidies 
of 1327-8 and 1372-3. These subsidies do not name the parishes in whidi 
the persons assessed lived; but the hundred of Calehill comprised the parishes 
of Charing, Westwell, Egerton, Little Chart, tmd Pluckley, as well as parts 
of several other parishes. Contemporary with the above John at Hecche 
of Sellinge were several of the name in Charing, probably his broUiers and 
cousins, who left wills not given in this article. The mention of his limds 
in Westweir and Charing places his origin in that ancient Atte Hacche family, 
and he is the first of the name in Sdlinge or vicinity of whom record has 
been found. His will names his wife Agnes and three sons. 

2. i. Thomas, b. probably abt. 1442. 
ii. John, b. probably abt. 1444. 
iii. William, b. probably abt. 1446. 

2. Thomas at Hecche (John)^ of Sellinge, co. Kent, was bom about 1442. 

as he was at least twenty-one in 1464, when his father appointed 
him one of the executore of his will, but was then imder twenty-four. 
No will or administration of his estate has been found. He suc- 
ceeded to a portion of his father's lands in Sellinge, and doubtless 
married soon after his father's death, becoming the father of a family 
of whom only one child is known. 

3. i. Thomas, b. probably abt. 1465. 

3. Thomas Hache {Thomas. John), of Sellinge, co. Kent, the testator of 

1530, was bom probabhr about 1465. He held the manor of Hody- 
ford, was assessed as "Thomas Hatche the elder" in the himdred of 
Street, in the subsidy of 1524, and died between 12 Dec. 1530 and 
31 Dec. 1534. The name of his wife has not been found, but six 
children are named in his will in 1530. 

i. William, b. abt. 1488; succeeded to the manor of Hodyford and 
other lands imder the will of his father. Child: 1. Agnes, 
mentioned in her grandfather's will in 1530. 

4. ii. John the Elder, b. abt. 1490. 
iii. Agnes. 

iv. Thomas, not mentioned in his father's will in 1530, and therefore 
probaoly deceased before that year. His existence is inferred 
from the fact that his supposed father, Thomas Hache, is (»lled 
''Thomas Hatche the elder" in the subsidy of 1524. 

5. V. John the Younoer, b. probably abt. 1495. 
vi. Margaret. 

vii. AucE. 

4. John Hache the Elder (Thomas, Thomas, John), bom probably about 

1490, died before 1 Nov. 1519. He married Eleanor , the 

testatrix of 1519, who died between 1 Nov. and 12 Dec. 1519, having 
named two children in her will. 

6. i. Thomas, b. probably abt. 1513. 

ii. Agnes, b. probably abt. 1515; living in 1530. 

5. John Hatche the Younger (Thomas, Thomas, John), of Sellinge, co. 

Kent, the testator of 1535, bom probablv about 1495, died between 
13 Apr. 1535 and 26 Apr. 1536. His wife, whose name is unknown, 
is mentioned in his will. By the wiU of his father, proved in 1534, 
he succeeded to lands and tenements in Sellinge, including a ''new 
house," which in the following year he devised to his three sons. 
His five eldest children are naxned in the will of his father.

1653, Elder Thomas King of Soituate (wno suoceedea William 
Hatdi in the office of elder), and died at Scituate 8 Oct. 1653. Her 
parentage has not yet been discovered, but it is likely that Edward 
Young of Thanington, husbandman, one of the bondsmen on the 
marriage Ucenoe, was ner kinsman, iwhaps her brot^ 

About 1634 William Hatch and his family removed from Wye to 
Sandwich, co. Kent, The statement that be was at Soituate in the 
P^nnouth Cdony in 1633 is incorrect, and is due to the assumption 
that the date after the names of the assistants in the records ap- 
died to all the names following. He embarked for America for the 
nnrt time in Mar. 1634/5. sailing from Sandwich in the ship Hercule$ 
with his wife Jan^ five cnildren, and six servants. In the same ship* 
sailed his cousin, I^dia (Hudkstep) Tilden (7, i, 7), with her husbanc^ 
Nathaniel Tilden, and their children. TraUwn Hatch and his family 
settled at Sdtuate, ^diere he buih a house on Kent Street and was 
admitted freeman on 5 Jan. 1635/6. He returned to England, but 
came hack to New Enriand in Apr. 1638, in the ship Ca^.^ It is 
probable that his brotner Thomas (10) with his wife and children 
and his sister Elisabeth Soan (12) with her son William came with 
him (m this voyage. In 1643 WilliBm Hatdi was chosen the first 
ruling elder of we Second Church of Sdtuate, and in August of that 
year he with his bodb Walter and John appears on the list of those in 
Sdtuate able to bear arms (that is, the^ were between 16 and 60 years 
of age). In the same year also he was heutenant of Ihe trainband.}

* Although in the marriage licence of 9 July 1624 William Hatch is described as a 
bachelor, it seems necessary to assume that this statement is incorrect and is probably 
due to a clerical error. In a wfll dated 3 Mar. 1681/2, signed by Walter Hatch, son 
of Elder William, 4 Mar. 1681/2, but never proved, Walter Hatch gives his age as 
"69 yeares," and therefore he was bom about 1623. In Aug. 1643 Walter Hatch is on 
the list of those able to bear arms, that is, he was then at least 16 years of age. In the 
will of his father, dated 5 Nov. 1651. Walter Hatch is named before his brother Wil- 
liam. In the division of the personal estate of his faUier he signs first, and the docu- 
ment is in his handwriting. In various other documents in ^^ch he is named with 
his only surviving brother, William, he is always named first. Walter, therefore, 
must have been the eldest son of Ellder William, and the child of a marriage con- 
tracted earlier than 1624. The unproved wiU of Walter Hatch and the document 
containing the division of the persoiud estate of his father are in the possession of one 
of Walter Hatch's descendants, Israel H. Hatch of Marshfield, Mass., who has kindly 
permitted the writer to have access to his voluminous family papers.

% Many erroneous statements about E3der William Hatch and his family appear 
in various printed works, and it is hoped ihaX the pedigree here given will serve in 
some measure to correct such errors.

II This surname is given on the authority of Israel H. Hatch of Marshfield, Mass. 
Most writers on this family state that in the marriage record the surname of the wife 
has been obliterated. In Rboistsb, vol. 6, p. 348, the record from the town books of

1916] The Redeemed Captives of 1747 261 

Monday, 24 Aug. 1747, of which also only one copy, preserved in the 
library of the Massachusetts Historical Society, is known to be in 
existence, there is printed a list of these captives, classified according 
to the times and places of their capture. A comparison of these 
two lists shows that each contains some names not given in the other. 

In the well-known story of his captivity, entitled "The Redeemed 
Captive" and printed in Boston in 1748, Rev. John Norton makes 
special mention of those who died in captivity, giving the date of the 
death of each, but he does not give in his book the names of those 
who returned with him to New England. The "Journal of Captain 
William Pote, Jr.," pubUshed in 1896, contains a list of the captives 
who died at Quebec between May 1745 and 16 Aug. 1747, but does 
not mention those who survived their captivity. 

Below is reproduced the first paragraph in the account given in 
the Gazette, which announces the arrival of the captives in Boston; 
and this is followed by the classified list printed in the Weekly Post- 
Bay , in which variations found in the list as given in the Gazette have 
been inserted within brackets. Then follow some names found in 
the account in the Gazette but not listed or classified in the Weekly 
Post'Boy.* In addition to these lists of 1747 some interesting in- 
formation, found in The Boston Weekly PosUBoy of Monday, 10 July 
1749, and relating to captives in Canada in the year 1749, is reprinted 

From The Boston Gazette, or Weekly Journal, of Tuesday, 

18 Aug. 1747 


Last Lord's Day arrived here from Quebec in 21 Dajrs the Ship Verd 
d'Grace,t as a Flagg of Truce, with 171 Persons who had been taken by the 
French and Indian Enemy, at divers Times, and carried there as Prisoners; 
among whom is the Rev. Mr. John Norton^ who was taken the 20th of Augwt 
1746^ with a Number of others at Fort Massachusetts A from whom we have 
obtam'd the following Account, of the Names of the Persons that have been 
taken by the Enemy, and carried in there, with the Places to which they 
belong; which we hope will be acceptable to the Publick, and gratify their 
inquisitive Relations and Friends.

From The Boston Weekly Post-Bot op Monday, 10 July 1749 

On the 29th ult. [29 June 1749] came to Town [Boston] from Canada, Mr. 
Timothy Brown, where he had been with some others to endeavour to Re- 
deem some Captive Children; by him we have the following Advice, That 
soon after his Arrival at Montreal, one Daniel Maddox, an Knglishman, who 
is the King's Literpreter, informed him, that there was a Command of a 
Thousand Frenchmen, with a Number of Indians, going to a Place called 
Le Bell Rivier, about 300 Leagues from Canada, on a Branch of Mieaieeippi 
River, in order to destroy some Lidians that were under the Allegiance of 
the Crown of England and to drive off the English who were buildi^ a Fort 
there: He was likewise informed of it by divers English, French, and Lidians; 
and also saw the Men daily gathering and going up the River to their Place 
of Rendezvous, which was about 12 Miles above Montreal: That the Lidians 
told him, the Fi-ench had invited them to go, but that there were but twenty- 
five out of all their Castes that would go. — That on the 3d of June the^ 

went off with their Canoes where they embodied. Mr. Broum upon his 

Return, informed the Mayor of Albany of the above Affair, who told him 
that he knew the Place, tluit it was supported by Pennsylvania, and immedi- 
ately sent an Express to Gov. Clinton, 

He also says. That there are nine CapeCod Lidians at Canada, five of which 
were taken at Annapolis Royal, who were under the Command of Col. 
Gorham in the Year 1745; some of them are sold as Slaves to the Lidians; 

that they are very desirous of being redeemed. There is also a Boy who 

was taken from Rochester in New Hampshire, with the Indians at St. Francois, 
his Name is Jonathan Dove:* There is also a Girl with the Nuns at Montreal, 
who is Daughter to the Widow Foster, taJnem. at or near Casco Bay; her other 
Child died at St. Francois this Spring: — There are also two young Women 
in Canada who are Sisters, that were taken in their Passage from Edinburgh 
to New England^ who say they have a Kinsman in Boston named John BeU, 
their Names are Thompson, and are Servants to the French: Th^ very 
much fear they shall tarry ever in that Country, except they are shortly 

Mr. Brown further relates. That there is a Government settling at or near 
Crown Point, That since he went to Montreal, they had erected near 30 small 
French Houses on both Sides of the Lake, and that near twentv Families 
were got there since: He was informed that the King allowed them, three 
Years Provision, every Man a Horse and Cow. all Husbandry Utensils, 150 
Livers in Cash, and their Lands free from Quit-Rent for Twelve Yean. 

* Jonathan Dore was taken captive 37 June 1746. He retorned to Rooheeter in 
Dec. 1759, and on 23 Feb. 1761 received a grant of 60 acres of land in Lebanon in the 
Province of Maine, bounded at the southwest comer by the Berwick town line and 
on the west by the Salmon Falls River, beginning a few rods north of Stair Falls on 
said river. Here he lived from 1761 to 1799. He married before 28 Oct. 1760 Dorothy 
Famham, daughter of Matthew Famham, one of the earliest settlers of Lebanon, and 
died without issue.

A monthly meeting of Friends was established in the town of 
Harlem, Kennebec Co., Me., in 1813. Parts of Harlem, Albion, and 
Winslow were incorporated in 1818 under the name of China, and the 
remainder of Harlem was annexed to China in 1822. The vital 
records of the Harlem Monthly Meeting follow.^

t Turner Peterson of Saratoaa. N. Y., married 19 Deo. 1827 Hannah Westgate of 
Plainfidd, N. H. His identity has not been determined. 

% Several of the familiea entered in the Friends' records at Harlem (China) appear 
also in the Friends' records at Vassalborough, Me., which were published in RsaiarBB. 
vols. 68 and 09. Usually the Harlem record gives the Imths of a greater number of 
children than the Vassalborough record of the same family. Footnotes indicate the 
volume and pages of the Rbgxstsb where the Vassalborough records of such families 
may be found; but no attempt is made to harmonise conflicting statements in the 
two sets of records.

Parentage of Giles Slocum of Pobtsmouth, R. I. — In the Slocums of 
America, compiled by Dr. Charles Elihu Slocum, uiere is an extended notice of 
the Knglish Slocums: and Giles Slocum of Portsmouth, R. I., is given as a son of 
Anthony Slocum of Taunton, Mass., in si>ite of the fact that in the will of Anthony 
Slocum of Albemarle Countv in the Province of Carolina, dated 26 Nov. 1688 and 

§ roved 7 Jan. 1689/90, neither Giles nor his childr<m are mentioned. There is no 
oubt of the identity of t;he Anthony Slocum of Albemarle Countv in Carolina 
with the Anthony Slocum who was formerly of Taunton, Mass., and. the omission 
in the will of any reference to Giles Slocum or his children shows conclusively that 
Giles was not Anthony's son. 

In Dr. Slocum's account of the "P^ glia^ Slocums is sdven an abstract of the will 
of Chanty Slocombe, widow, of the parish of Old Cleeve, co. Somerset, dated 
21 Nov. 1642 and proved 26 Jan. 1642/3. The testatrix mentions brother 
Aldred Bickham, sister Joane Studdier, kinswomen IsoU Oatford and Mary Wills, 
widow, the latter of Envier, and son Giles Slocombe, who is made sole executor 
of the will. The English genealogist employed by Dr. Slocum to carry on the 
search in England oondudra that this GiL» could not be Giles of Rhode Island, 
because he assumed that the latter was at Portsmouth, R. I., as early as or soon 
after 1638. This assumption is not warranted by the records. The first mention 
of Giles Slocum on record in New England is on 4 Sept. 1648, when he was granted 
land in Portsmouth. He does not app^ in Rhode Island previous to that date, 
and he was not in Plymouth Colony in Aug. 1643, when Anthony Slocum of 
Taunton was on the list of men able to hear arms. It would therefore appear 
that he did not arrive in New England until 1647 or 1648, and in this case it is very 
probable that he was the Giles, son of Charity Slocombe, who was her executor in 

Abstracts of the wills of the father and mother of Charity (Bickham) Slocombe 
and of her brothers William and Aldred follow.

The inll of Ellen Biddham of Old QeeveL co. Somenet, widow, dated 24 June 
1642 and proved 20 June 1646 by Aldred bidcham, contains bcKiuests to sister

CoUes. to unde J<^ CoUes's widow, mentions chattels left to the testatrix by her 

son l^^^lliam Bickham. and bequeaths the residue of the estate to son Aldred

Old Cleeve. (76^ Series 2, p. 68.) 

The win of William Bickham of (Hd Cleeye, co. Somerset, bachelor, dated 
2 Mar. 1626 [1626/7] and (ffoved 12 June 1627, contains bequests to sister's 
ddest daugiiter, to Aldred Bickham, Jr-* to brother Aldred, to brother-in-law 
J<^ Studdier, and to testator's mothor. Ellen Biddiam. (76., Series 2, p. 67.) 

The will of Aldred Bickham of Old Cleeve, co. Somerset, dothier, dated 7 Feb. 
1651 [1651/2] and proved 24 May 1652, contains bequests to ddest son Richard 
Bickham ("a sQver salt ^uikled with gold A six silver spoons, according to mv 
nandfather's will to remam for ever to the ddest scm of his line & blood"), to wife 
Thomasine, to daui^ter EUen Escott. wife of Richard Escott, to sons Aldred 
Bickham, William, and Hu|^ to daugnters Jdian, Mary, and Anne, to daughter 
Isott Biddiam, to Marv and Joan, dauc^ters of daughter Ellen Escott, and to 
lm^eHn4ftw Hu^ Slocombe. Residue to bod. Alored, executor. Overseer: 
Richard Escott. (it.. Series 3, p. 87.) 

Abstracts of wills of other members iA the Bickham familv are printed in 
Somersetshire Wills, and subsequent recwds in Somersetshire show that by the 
beginning of the ei'c^teenth century the family had risen to the ranks of the 
gentry and that they resided in Taunton, co. Somerset, and also in Exeter, co. 

In view of these facts a further search should be made in the records of Somer- 
set and Devon, and the parish registers or Bishop's transcripts for Old Cleeve and 
the nei^boring parishes ou^t to be examined, as there can be little doubt that 
Giles Slocombe, son of Chanty of Old Cleeve, and Giles of Portsmouth, R. I., are 
identical. Giles was probablv a near relative of Anthony of Taunton, Mass., and 
the latter probably came to New England in the comjmny of Mistress Elizabeth 
Poole, who founded Taunton and who, being a native of the West Country, 
brou^t the earliest settlers of Taunton from the counties of Devon, Somerset, 
and Dorset.

Historical Inivlugence 

Heraldry. — The Committee on Heraldry of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Sodety desires to call special attention to the recommendation in its 
report of 5 May 1914 (see Register, vol. 69, Supplement, pp. xvi-xxiii), ''that 
every person interested, bv reason of descent or otherwise, in making it a matter 
of record that anv original settler in this country inheritea a coat of arms or that 
any inhabitant of this country recdved a grant of arms be invited to ofTer the 
arms for record with this Sodety,'' etc. 

The Committee believes that the importance of the results possible to be 
attained by such registration will be of great interest; and they earnestly request 
all members of the Sodety and all other persons who have coats of arms which 
they believe to be diEible to make application for recording them. The cost of 
painting the arms ana makina up the record will have to be defrayed by the ap- 
plicants, and the Committee has determined that $3.00 for each coat will barely 

This amount, b^ cheoue pa3rable to the order of the Society, must be forwarded 
with the appUcation. If the i^[>plication is rejected, the money will be returned 

1916] Recent Books 285 

unless the applicant wishes to have the arms reowded with those respited for proof. 
The Committee, however, reserves the right to reject any appUcation altogether, 
and if this ri^t is exercised, the money will, of course, be rc^aimed. 

It seems evident that, besides the ^wth in value of tne collection as it increases 
in size, there will be many other thmgs of extreme interest contributed with the 
arms and directly related thereto, such as photographs of castles, armor, seds, 
manors, etc., and provision is contemplated for filing such contributions in supple- 
mentary volumes in connection with the registers of the arms. Applications in 
which the proofs do not sufficiently conform to the requirements indicated in the 
report of tne Committee will be placed in a separate volume to await further 

Printed directions for the making of applications may be obtained from the 
Committee; and all communications on tnis subject should be addressed to the 
Committee on Heralcbry, New England Historic Genealogical Society, 9 A^- 
burton Place, Boston. 

Plainfibld (Conn.) Historical Socibtt. — The Plainfield Historical Society 
has been organized in the town of Plainfield, Conn., with seventeen charter mem- 
bers. Judge John E. Prior, whose address is Moosup, Conn., is presidodt, and 
members of the Society are abready taking steps to preserve some of the vital 
records existing in the town by copying the inscriptions found in the many small 
burial grounds there. These inscnptions will be printed in a future numb^ of the 

Genealogies in Preparation. — Persons of the several names are advised to 
furnish the compilers of these genealogies with records of their own families 
and other information which they think may be useful. We would suggest tiiat 
all facts of interest illustrating family history or character be communicated, 
especially service \mder the U. S. Government, the holding of other offices, grad- 
uation from college or professional schools, occupation, with places and dates 
of birth, marriage, resiclence, and death. All names should be given in JvJH if 
possible. No imtials should be used when the full name is known.

OCTOBER, 1916 

By JoHK WooDBUBT, A.B., of Boston, Mi 

George Emery Ltttlefield, bookseller, bibliophile, and author, 
and a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society,, 
died suddenly at Hamilton, Mass., on 4 September 1915. 

He was bom in Boston, Mass., 29 August 1844, the son of Jacob 
and Sarah (Hill) littlefield. He was seventh in descent from 
Edmund^ littlefield of Exeter, N. H., and Wells, Me., the immi- 
grant ancestor of the New England Littlefields, who was baptized 
at Titchfield, co. Hants, EIngland, 27 June 1592, and died, pre- 
sumably at Wells, Me., 14 December 1661. Edmund^ Littlefield 
was the eldest son of Francis and Mary littlefield of Titchfield, co. 
Hants. Francis was bom probably about 1565 and was buried at 
Titchfield 22 October 1618. Mary, who was the first wife of Francis, 
was buried at Titchfield 29 October 1605. Francis Littlefield was 
a clothier and left a good estate. His son Edmimd married at 
Titchfield, 16 October 1614, Agnes (also called Anne or Annis) Austin, 
probably the "Agnice awstine" who was baptized at Titchfield 1 
February 1596/7, daughter of Richard of Titchfield. She sailed for 
New England, with six children and two servants, in the ship Bevis 
from Southampton, in May 1638. Her husband and elder son 
Francis had probably preceded her in emigrating to New England. 
Edmund appears first at Exeter, where he sign^ the Combination 
on 5 June 1639, and in 1643 he received a grant of land at Wells. 
He left an estate of £588. 13s. 4d.* George Emery Littlefield was 
descended from Edmund^ Littlefield through Francis^ the Mder 
(there were two sons named Francis) of WeUs, Me., who was baptized 
at Titchfield, co. Hants, 17 June 1619, Dependence^ of Wells, Samuel^ 
of Wells, Dependence* of Wells, Elias* of Sanford, Me., and JacoV 
of Sanford, his father, who was bom at Sanford 23 March 1815 and 
died at Cambridge, Mass., 11 September 1877. Jacob^ Littlefield 
married at Biddeford, Me., 30 AprU 1840, Sarah EQU, bom at Bidde- 
ford 5 December 1811 and sixth in descent from Peter^ Hill, who 
settled at Biddeford about 1648. 

At the time of George Littlefield's birth his parents were living on 
Milton Street in the West End of Boston, and his early education

the MasBaohuseUs Historical Society, who left a very valuable libraiy. 
Charles Francis Adams^ who picked up in the shop many bodos that aUed 
him in his historical wntings, Francis Gardner, Head Master of the Boston 
Latin School, William B. Trask of Dorchester, well known as an antiquarian 
and writer, John Ward Dean, Idbraiian d the Genealogical Society. Gov. 
Charles H. Bell of New Hampshire, whose love of Ixx^ led him orten to 
Boston from his home in Exeter, Rear-Admiral George H. Preble, U.SJN.. 
and last but not least his friend of many years. Dr. a^ Ez-Mayor Samud 
A. Green. As Littlefidd himself said: 'You may say that practically all 
the weU-known Boston writers and scholars were among iny customers in 
the forty-five years that I have done business here. That is, thi^ came in 
person, and many of them became my close friends. Of course I had hun- 
dreds of other customers, in other parts of the oountiy, whom I knew only 
through correspondence. Librarians, genealogists, collectors of Americana, 
book auctioneers, and others wishing special information about American 
books got into the way of writing me for advice, and in that way my ao- 
quaintemce became extended.'" 

A bibliophile himself, Mr. Littlefield was in quick sympathy with 
his customers of similar tastes. Without a suspicion of commercialism, 
he was interested in finding out and supplying their wants, and he 
took pleasure and pride in the improvement of thdr oollectionSi 
without that envy of possession which sometimes mars the relations 
between collectors. 

It was natural that Mr. Littlefield's wide knowledge of Americana 
and genealogy should lead him to author^p. Besides many short 
articles and papers, he wrote three books of distinction and perma- 
nent value. The titles, which indicate their contents, are as follows: 
"Early Boston Booksellers, 1642-1711," Boston, 1900; "Early 
Schools and School-Books of New England," Boston, 1904; "The 
Early Massachusetts Press, 1638-1711," Boston, 1907. All three 
bookis were published in limited editions by the Club of Odd Volumes 
of Boston, of which he was an early member and for many years its 
librarian. The editions were quickly exhausted, and whenever 
copies appear for sale they bring greatly enhanced prices. 

Another item that deserves notice is "1607-1907. A Descriptive 
Catalogue of the Massachusetts Exhibit of Colonial Books at the 
Jamestown Ter-Centennial Exposition. Privately Printed in Bos- 
ton, 1907," which was prepared by him to describe this collection, 
which owed its completeness and value largely to his efforts as a 
member of the Book Committee of the Esdiibition Managers, his 
object being "to show, by a judicious selection, that American 
literature began certainly as early as the arrival of the Pilgrims and 
Puritans on the shores of New England, and that our early New 
England ancestors were able to produce literature, not only in its 
widest sense, but also in the more limited sense of betles4ettre8, or 
polite literature, including poetry and history." The exhibit secured 
a gold medal, the highest award. 

Mr. Littlefield bad been a resident member of the New Ejngland 
Historic Genealogical Society since 1882, and from the year 1912 
until his death he was a member of its Committee on Sale of Pub- 
lications. On 3 October 1900 he read a paper before the Society on 
Capt WiUiam Pierce of the Ann, the Mayflower and the Lyon. Other 

9M Diary cf Jame$ Parker [OoL 

organisations of which he was a member were the Society of 
Wars in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Maine ffistoiical 
Society, the New Hampshire Historical Society, the Western Eesearve 
EBstorical Society, and the Somerville (Mass.) Historical Society. 

Mr. littlefield married at Cambridge, Mass., 8 February 1870, 
Sknily Frances Willis, who was bom at Charlestown, Mass., 22 
Sqytember 1845, dau^ter of David Cobb and Hannah (Goodrich) 
Willis of Charlestown. Their daughter and only child, Gertrude 
Elisabeth, was bom at Somerville, Mass., 8 January 1871. She be- 
came the wife of Mr. J. M. Meggett. Mr. and Mrs. Littlefield made 
their home in Somerville, a suburb of Boston, for nearly the whole 
of th&i married life. The last few months of George littlefidd's life 
would have been wholly tragic, had it not been for the dose ssrmpathy 
of trae friends who f dt his sorrows and troubles as their own and 
joined in hdping him to bear the combined assaults of fate. His 
daughter and only child had died a few years before. Then came 
the events which led to the dosing of the old shop. Then came the 
deatii, after a painful illness, of his wife. It would seem as if human 
nature could bear no more. In one way or another the enormous 
stodL of books and pamphlets which represented years of accumulation 
was dispersed. The genealo^cal works and town histories went to 
the book establishment of a friend, who created a separate depart- 
ment to be in his charge. He had just entered upon this new ex- 
perience when on a pleasant summer af temoon, while riding with a 
valued friend, he was suddenly stricken and died. 

The life of George Emery Littlefield, to those who regard the 
essentials, must seem to have been well-rounded and complete. He 
early found a useful and valuable work to perform, which gave him 
congenial occupation and surroundings. His own warm-hearted- 
ness and high sense of honor made him permanent friendships, and 
his genial manners, love of good conversation, and keen sense of 
humor brought him the pleasures of companionship. A long and 
happy married life was shadowed only by those sorrows which no 
man can escape. The respect of all, the regard of friends, the love 
of family, and the labor of life well done — was not this enough?
