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. 

Usage guidelines 

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

+ 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. 

About Google Book Search

JANUARY, 1920 



HENRY ERNEST WOODS, A.M. 
By HxNBT WiNCHBOTEB CoNNiNaHAM, A. B., of Milton, Mass. 

Heeibt Ebnbst Woods, so long an active member of this Society 
and for so many years a worker in the field of New England history 
and eeoealc^^, died suddenly of heart trouble at the Hotel Weldon 
at Greenfidd, Mass., 11 October 1919, while on the performance of 
Ub duties as State Conmiissioner of Public Records. 

Hie son of Henry Thayer and Ellen (Thayer) Woods, he was bom 
in Boston, at the home of his grandfather, EUjah Thayer, 181 Salem 
Street, 5 June 1857,* and was descended through both his father 
and mottier from a long line of New England ancestors. His father, 
a wbokgale dry-goods merchant of Boston, had come from the 
town of Groton, Mass., where he was bom in 1830, and descended 
from the wellrknown Woods family of that town through Hemy* 
(18Q2-1841) and his wife Hannah Maria Thayer of HolUs, N. H.. 
CoL Samson' (1760-1826), a Revolutionaiy soldier of Pepperell 
and Groton, and his wife Alice Tarbell, Brig. Gen. Henry^ (1733- 
1804) of Groton and Pepperell, an officer in the French and Indian 
Wan, the Revolution, and during Shays's Rebellion, and a general 
m the militia, and his wife Deborah Parker, Isaac' (1700-1775) of 
Groton and his wife Abigail Stevens, Nathaniel' (1668-1738) of 

Groton and his first wife Eleanor , and Samuel,^ the earliest 

ancestor in America, who was bom about 1636 and moved with his 
wife Alice Rushton to Groton in 1662, where he was an original 
proprietor. Mr. Woods's mother was of the well-known Thayer 
uunily, descending from the emigrant Thomas Thayer or Tayer, 
who was at Braintree, Mass., before 1639. 

Hany Woods, as he was familiarly known to all his friends, grew 
op in Boston, and was a student at Chauncy Hall School from 1865 
to 1875, going to the School when it was still located in Chauncy 
Street, and fitting for Harvard, where he would probably have been 
a member of the Class of 1881 ; but at the time he was not in robust 
health, and trouble with his eyes obliged him to give up all idea of 
ping to college. For a brief time he took a position in a wholesale 
boot and shoe house, starting at the bottom and expecting to make

business his life work; but in a few months his health obliged him to 
stot) work, and he crossed the Atlantic and spent a long time journey- 
ing through England, Scotland, and other parts of Europe. On his 
return home he began again in the same business in January 1877, 
and remained in it for several years. 

Previous to his European trip he had, in the winter of 1871-2, 
made a voyage to Cuba, and from there across the Gulf to New 
Orleans, thence to Florida, and up the Atlantic coast. In fact, as 
he wrote in 1880, he had for the previous ten years scarcely for a 
year missed a journey in some direction, even if it was only a vaca- 
tion trip, and for several years at this period he passed a part of each 
summer at Kennebimkport, Me., and took an active part in the 
sunmier life there, serving for a long time as honorary secretary of 
the little casino. 

These trips during his early life, most of them taken for the benefit 
of his health, interfered with the continuous progress of his school 
life. But he had many inborn talents and a natural inclination 
towards an artistic and literary life, and he gradually turned his 
attention to this work, at first as an amateur; then, as his interest 
and his ability developed, he became, perhaps before he fully reaUzed 
it, for he was ever modest as to his accomplishments, so well equipped 
that there were few in his lines so well fitted to pursue the work as 
a profession. 

To those who knew him only in his late years, when he was busy 
with New En^and records, it may be a surprise to know how clever 
he was with his pencdl, and that for several years he was a more or 
less regular contributor to Life; and this artistic touch continued in 
his neat and characteristic lumdwriting and in the clear and attrac- 
tive way in which he made a genealogical chart, and, quite likely, 
it iofluenced him in his study of herald^. 

He joined this Society 5 May 1880, tiien in his twenty-third year, 
becoming a life member in 1902; and he soon b^an to take an active 
interest in its work, contributing to the Register in 1883 an article 
on the English ancestry of the Thayers, his mother's family, at 
Thombury in Gloucestershire, and a few years later a review of an 
"Rnglifth genealogical book.* 

In 1888 he became a member of the C!ommittee on Heraldiy, and 
continued as such till 1910, serving many years as its chaunnan; 
and, in the annual report which he made in December 1898 and 
which was adopted by the Society at the following annual meeting, 
he took a strong position on the proper and improper use of coat 
armor by Americans, a position that received much conunendation 
at home and abroad. I^m a long study he became well-versed in 
heraldry, probably as much so as anyone in the conmiunity, and 
was often consulted and gave freely of his advice to those in search 
of the true interpretation of a coat of arms. He had little patience 
with professionals who were too ready to make up arms for anyone,

or with those who insisted on using spurious anns. It did Aot 
seem to him honest, and anything dishonest was repugnant to 
his nature. In the Register for April 1895 he made a communica- 
tian on the arms of Anne Radcliffe, Lady Moulson, and was con- 
sulted by the authorities of Radcliffe College about these arms and 
as to a proper seal for the College. 

In addition to his work for the Society on heraldry, he soon became 
a member of the Committee on the Library, and in the early nineties, 
when the writer first began to take an interest in the Society, wh^re 
he made Mr. Woods's acquaintance, he was serving as secretary of 
that Committee and was active and alert in adding valuable books 
to the library. His knowledge of English parish registers was 
ertenaive, and it was largely through his advice that the Society 
began the systematic collection of this important addition to its 
lifaffaiy. 

For fifteen or twenty 3rears he had been a constant visitor at the 
liteaiy and a delver in the records of New England families, and 
had nuuie brief genealogies for himself and given help to all his 
friends who were searchmg in these fields unusual to them, so that 
in the winter of 1901, when the late John Ward Dean became ill and 
unable to continue his work as Editor of the Registeb, Mr. Woods 
was asked to edit the April, July, and October numb^; and after 
that he was chosen Editor and continued till 1907, when he was 
eaDed to other duties. 

President Baxter in his address at the annual meeting of the 
Society in 1902, in speaking of the great loss the Society had su£Fered 
in the death of Mr. Dean, said ibkt they were fortunate in having 
tried men in their service, and, continumg, said: ''One of these, I 
think, you will not object to have me particularly mention, and that 
is the present Editor of the Register, Mr. Woods. H^ services 
have been so valuable that I cannot refrain from congratulating you 
far having secured them." And in his annual address the following 
year Bfr. Baxter again called attention to Mr. Woods's work, 8a3dng: 
^ think you will all agree with me that imder the able editorship 
of Mr. Woods it [the Register] has grown better than ever." The 
late CSal^ B. Tlllinghast, for many years our Vice-President and 
CShaiiman of the Committee on Publications, had been thrown with 
maaj pubUc men and was a keen judge of human nature, and at first 
be baa some little doubt whether Mr. Woods would care to take 
op regular professional duties; but he soon found that he was not 
only accurate and skilful but conscientious and regular in the dis- 
charge at his duties, and the two men became the warmest of personal 
fiieods, often making Uttle summer trips together. 

In 1901 an active movement was made, mainly through the 
initiative of Edmund D. Barbour, in which he was strongly backed 
by Mr. Greenlaw and Mr. Woods, to have the State assist in the 
preservation of the vital records of the cities and towns of Massa- 
chusetts, by encouraging the printing each year of a fixed amount of 
socfa records in book form. This movement resulted in the Vital 
Records Act of June 1902, and Mr. Woods at once began the work 
tor this Sodety, publishing during the first year the records of six 



6 Henry Ernest Woods [Jan. 

small towns. In all he edited thirty-two volumes of these Vital 
Records. 

In 1907 Robert T. Swan, the first Conmiissioner of Public Records 
for Massachusetts, died, and Mr. Woods was appointed to succeed 
him, receiving the appointment from his old schoolmate and lifelong 
friend, Curtis Guild, who was then Governor. This new position 
necessitated the withdrawal of Mr. Woods from active work for ^taa 
Society, though he still served on conmiittees and for three shears 
(1908-1910) as a member of the Council,* and again the President 
voiced in his annual address what must have been the feeling of aU, 
saying: ''The retirement of Mr. Woods from the editorship of publi- 
cations requires more than a passing notice. Since his connection 
with that department, Mr. Woods has not only rendered the most 
devoted service to the interests of the Society, but has sho?m himsdf 
to be possessed of editorial ability of a iugh character. In his 
association with the members of this Society and its officers, his 
unvarying courtesy and exuberant good will have endeared him to 
us iJl, and his vacant chair will remind us of a personal loss.'' 

Mr. Woods's work as Conmiissioner took him to all parts of the 
State for a personal examination of the condition and methods of 
preservation of the town records, and it was while on one of these 
trips that he died. When he made these trips in summer his friends 
Grenville H. Norcross and Francis Apthorp Foster and some- 
times others often went with him; and they dc^ght in telling of the 
tact with which he handled his business, for the average town clerk 
is not apt to look with pleasure upon the advent of a State official 
who may criticize his work or oblige him to do it in some new way; 
but most of them melted imder the hearty and smiling good nature 
with which Mr. Woods approached them, and it was sddom that he 
had to invoke his legal powers to accomplish his ends, though he did 
not hesitate to do this when necessary. He did a good work in 
encouraging the care and preservation of historic records, for his 
training had taught him their value, and he well knew how easily 
they might become lost or damaged in careless hands. 

His achievements were recognized by election to membership in 
the American Antiquarian Society in 1907 and in the Massachusetts 
Historical Society in 1908, and he was one of the founders of The 
Colonial Society of Massachusetts in 1892. He was made an honor- 
ary member of the Harvard Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa in 1901 and 
of many historical organizations at various times, and Bowdoin 
College gave him the honorary degree of Master of Arts in 1903. 

He was never married, and for many years made his home with 
his mother, to whom he was devoted through her years of acute 
suffering from rheumatic gout, and he did much also for the care of 
an invalid brother; but during recent years he had rooms on New- 
bury Street in Boston and really made his home at the near-by St. 
Botolph Club, where he enjoyed the companionship of friends with 
kindred tastes in art and literature. 

*Mr. Woods was one of the donors to the fund raised for the erection of the new Iniilding of 
the Society at 9 Ashburton Place. Boston, and he was a member of the Special Ezeoative, 
Finance, and Building Committee in 1011 and 1012. He was also a member of the Com- 
mittee on Consolidated Index during the years 1010, 1011, and 1012.

He had a large acquaintance, and knew much about the origin 
and careers of most Boston people, even though he was not personally 
acquainted with than. And be had a few warm, personal friends, 
perhaps quite as many as the average man. These intimates always 
r^nained his intimates, for they knew his sterling worth and lus 
steadfast friendship, and they luul penetrated through an outside 
manner perhaps due to shyness and knew what a loyal friend and 
genial companion he could be. It was always a pleasure to meet 
him, even for a passing word upon the street, and see his face light up 
*with a cheery smile. Those who wete but mere acquaintances have 
never really known Harry Woods. 

He has accomplished much in his career, although he had his full 
share of cares and sorrows and must have had many lonely moments, 
but he has left a happy memory with his friends.

THE ERSEINE FAMILY OF BRISTOIs MK 
By FkAXX Eamsr Woodwabd of Wdleiky HiDi^ 



Thb Ersldne families are nmneioas and wide-spmd in Scotland. 
According to Low^s '1>ictioiiary of the Flamity Names of the United 
Kngdom" the ancient and noble Scottidi &mily bearing tUsi aar- 
name doived it from the barony of Erskine on the CSyde, in Ben- 
frewdiire, and the name was first assumed as a surname by Henry 
<tf Erskine about the year 1220. The first of the name to attain 
historical importance was Robot Eedine, who became Earl of Mar 
in 1435, on the death of Alexander, the fonner Earl of Mar, without 
issue. This Robot was a grandson of TsaheBa> Countess of Mar. 
From that date until comparativety recent times this tamilj has 
been prominent in the mintary, political, and idigioaB annak of 
ScotlaixL AlftTander Fiaguaon^ bjogyapbg of Henry Etekine, Lord 
Adrocate of Scotland, states that *Hhere is scared a r iu Bs itu de 
that can be named whidi has come upon any Scotch familty that 
has not befallen the Ekskines, nor are thore many of the great events 
in the history of the land in whidi they lutTe not borne

settled in MaasachuBetts prior to 1760, but only two of them had 
mnneroaB descendants. Christopher Erskine and his brother Robert 
came to Massachusetts in 1719, in the earliest immigration from 
Ireland, and settled in that part of the old town of Bridgewater 
which is now the town of East Bridgewater. Robert's line became 
extinct after the second generation, but there are many descendants 
of Christopher scattered over New England, New York, and the 
West. Alexander Erskine came to Boston in 1746, and a few years 
kter settled at Bristol in Maine, then a part of Massachusetts, his 
elder broUier Ninon joining him in Bristol a few years later. Of 
Erskine's posterity only a single family bearing the surname 
now be found,* but the descendants of Alexander are numerous 
and form the subject of this article. There is some evidence to 
su|>pari the theory that the Bridgewater and Bristol families were 
it&ted, altiiough the two migrations were more than twenty-five 

AcoOTding to the United States Census of 1790 there were several 
Kskine families in central New York, but they cannot be traced 
to New England ancestry. John Erskine, who was judge of the 
United States District Court in Georgia from 1868 to 1883, was 
bom in co. Tyrone, Ireland, in 1813, and came to America with his 
parents about 1820. 

1. Ai^EZANDEB^ Ebskinb, the first of this surname to settle in 
Maine, was of Scotch descent, his ancestors having crossed over 
from Scotland and settled in the north of Ireland after the expul- 
of the Roman Catholic inhabitants. He was bom at London- 
r, Iidand, about 1720,t and died at Bristol, Me., in 1784. Before 
mafpaitiMig to New England he married Euzabbth Butters, and 
it IB supposed that his two oldest children, Margaret and Sarah, 
bcmi in Londonderry. 

lander Erskine amved in Boston, Mass., in 1746, and a few 
later went with Shem Drowne to Bristol, to aid in making a 
d the claims of the Pemaquid Proprietors and to distribute 
among the inhabitants. He decided to settle there, and 
a tract of land of about 1000 acres. Through his influ- 
his dder brother, Ninon Erskine, came, not long afterwards, 
to BristoL As constable Alexander Erskine signed the warrant for 
the first town meeting in Bristol, in 1766. 
His land was situated on both sides of the Pemaquid River, the 
which he built being located just west of Biscay Pond and 
its outlet. In the inmiediate vicinity his six sons and three 
dani^ters settled, on land which probably formed a part of his orig- 
iosl grant, and the locality has ever since been known as the 
''EMdne neighborhood." At one time he was evidently a mill- 
wiiglit, utilising the water power at Pemaquid Falls. On 16 June 
1776 he sold to Richard Jones three-fourths of a gristmill called 
''Airidn's Mills.'' On 26 June 1776 he sold to Ebenezer Cox, a 
aoD-in-Iaw, 400 acres. On 9 Sept. 1777 he sold to his son William,

Bowen of Union, Me., who on 11 June 1806 caused to be 
recorded a prenuptial document, in ^^ch he said that he 
did not desire any of Elizabeth's property, and, in case 
he died, she was to have one-third of his property. He died 
l4 Feb. 1832. Elizabeth, his widow, returned to Bristol, and 
passed the remainder of her days with her children by her 
first husband. 

It has been impossible to obtain a full record of John 
Eliskine's family. In the U. S. Census of 1790 he is credited 
with one son and one dau^ter. In the Direct Tax of 1798 
his name does not appear. He owned at one time 300 acres 
of land on the east side of the Pemaquid River, but in 1795 
sold it to his brother Robert. On 26 S<^t. 1800 he bought 
300 acres of land in the plantation of New Waterford, Me.

26 Mar. 1776 and again on 10 Sept. 1777; also as a lieutenant 
on the privateer Lincoln Galley, commanded by Capt. John 
Curtis, on 19 Mar. 1781, serving 4 months and 4 days, but 
tradition in his family says that he spent much of his time in 
sea service. After the War, according to docimients published 
by the Maine Historical Society, he evidently did some pri- 
vateering on his own accoimt. He became later a successful 
shipmaster and a large owner of real estate. 

In the Direct Tax of 1798 he is recorded as having a dwell- 
ing house valued at $120 and 300 acres of land, althou^ not 
then married. The dwelling house was probably the home- 
stead which he held in accordance with an agreement among 
the heirs of his father that he should care for and maintain 
his mother so long as she lived. Margaret, his widow, lived 
for a few years in Boston after Robert's death.

1920] The Mother of Rev. John Whedwright 51 



THE MOTHER OF REV. JOHN WHEELWRIGHT 

By Mis. Mabt Lovxbinq Holman of Watertown, Maes. 

In the Wheelwright pedigree given in the valuable article entitled 
The Lincolnshire Origin of Some Exeter Settlers/' published in 
the Registeb for January, 1914 (vol. 68, pages 64-80), the imter 
of the article, Victor Channing Sanborn, Esq., states that Robert 
Wheelwright, who was the father of Rev. John Wheelimght of 
New England and was buried at Saleby, co. Lincoln, England, 

23 Feb. 1612/13, married first Alice , who was buried at 

Cmnberworth, co. Lincoln, in 1692; secondly Catherine , who 

was buried at Saleby 8 July 1605; and tUrdly, at Saleby, 17 Nov. 
1606, Catherine Money, widow of John. Mr. Sanborn assigns to 
Bobert Wheelwright a daughter and a son by his first wife, Alice 

, and three daughters by his second wife, Catherine . 

The daughter by the first wife is said to have married Thomas 
Eingerby of Wainfleet, co. Lincoln, and to have died before 13 
Oct. 1611, as she is not mentioned in her father's wiU of that date. 
The son was the Rev. John Wheelwright, who, Mr. Sanborn states, 
was bom about 1592, "since he was a minor in 1611, when his father 
made his will, but was of age 7 Mar. 1612/13, when the will was 
proved." It is the purpose of the present article to prove that in 

an probability Catherine , who appears in Mr. Sanborn's 

article as the second wife of Robert Wheelwright, was a daughter 
of Thomas Mawer, that she had been the wife of Richard Eongerby 
befive her marriage with Robert Wheelwright, and that she was 
the mother of Rev. John Wheelwright. 

An examination of the records which precede the pedigree given 
by Bdr. Sanborn shows that, although an AUce Wheelwright was 
buried at Cumberworth in 1592, there is no evidence that she was 
the wife of Robert Wheelimght. It is just as Ukely that she was 
Robert's sister or mother or even a more distant connection. The 
existenoe of a daughter who married Thomas Kingerby is inferred 
from the passage in Robert Wheelwright's will in which he appoints 
as one of the two supervisors ''Thomas Kingerbye of Wamflett 
my Sonne in lawe," but the evidence now to be presented msJces 
it very probable that Thomas Kingerbye was not the husband of 
Bobert Wheelwright's daughter but was his stepson, the son of 
his wife Catherine by a former husband named Kingerby.* 

In ''Lincolnshire Pedigrees," vol. 2, page 567 {Publications of the 
Harieian Society, vol. 51), there is printed a pedigree of Kingerby 
of Wainfleet, according to which William [sic, ? Richard] Kingerby 
of Wainfleet, son of William Kingerby of co. Lincoln, married

Katberine, daa^ter of Thomas Mawer of WiUcHighliy, and had by 
her two floos, vu., Robert Eingierby of Wainfleet, who died without 
jflBue, and Thonias Kmgerby of Croft, 1634, who married FaitfL 
dandier of William ClarkscMi of WainfleeL Directly north of 
Sal^T is the parufa of Stnibby , and in the paririi registerB of StnAbj 
with Woodtfaorpe aze reovded the marriaees of Bidiaid Kingsbie 
and Katherine Mawer, 2 Apr. 1581, and Tliomas Kyn ggabye and 
Faith Cawthcvn, 12 Blar. 1610 [1610 11].^ According to the Index 
of WiDs in the Consistory Court of linoofai the will of Ridiaid 
Kingerby of Wainfleet was proved in 1591 and the will of Robert 
Eingierby of Wainfleet wa s pro ved in 1613. 

Tne paiidi re^sters of WiUou^by contain the leeoids of four 
marriages to which a Thomas Maws' was a party, the llioinas 
Mawer mentioned last being possiUy a scm of the first-mentioaed 
Thomas. These marriages are as foDowsit 

1541 ThcMDas Mawer and Joan Dawson 25 Angosi. 

1557 Thomas Mawer and Joan Tieming 17 Augost. 

1560 Thooias Mawer and Margaret l&son 3 AngOBi. 

1571 Thooias Mawer and Agnes Goodwin 13 November. 

The win of a Thomas Blawer of WiUoughby, pobab^y the father 
of the Katherine who married Richard Kingerby on 2 Apr. 1581, 
was proved in the Consistory Court of LinocSn in 1597. Katherine 
was bom probably about 1560, and may have been the dan^t^r of 
Joan (Leming) Mawer or of Margaret (Mason) Mawv. As die 
did not give etUier ot these names (Joan or Margaret) to her dau^ten 
by her second husband (if it be assumed that she did beocxne die 
infe of R<d)ert Whedwri^t), the name of htf mother caimot be 
determined without an examination of the unpublished portions of 
the registers of lif^ou^bby. 

It seems Hkdyy therefore^ from the foregoing evidence, that, whether 
or not the Alice Wheelwright who was buned at Cumborvrorth in 

1502 was the wife of Robert Wheelwri^t, the Cathmne who 

is given in Mr. Sanborn's pedigree as the seccmd wife of Robert was 
the dau^ter of Thomas Mawer of Willou^by and married first, 
2 Apr. 1581, Richard Kingerby of Wainfleet, who died about 1591, 
by whom she had two sons, Robert, who died without issue, and 
lliomas, who married Faith Clarkson or Cawthom — periiaps Faith 
(Clarkson) Cawthom, this Thomas Kingerby being the ''soime in 
lawe," i.e., stepson, mentioned in Robert Wheelwright's will. Since 
he was made supervisor of the will and guardian ot one of Robert 
Wheelwright's daughters, he was of age at that time and was older 
than any of the chUdren of Robert. 

If Catherine (Mawer) Kingerby married secondly Robert Wheel- 
wright, she was the mother of the three daughters of Robert Wheel- 
wright, Elizabeth, Katherine, and Ellen or Elynor, who appear in 
the records given in Mr. Sanborn's article. She was also, it is prob- 
able, the mother of Rev. John Wheelwright, for he seems to have 
been bom about 1594, some two years later than the date assigned 
by Mr. Sanbom for his birth. This is inferred from the statement 

•Lincolnahire Pwiah Resistors. Mamaces, toL 7. pi>. 129. 131. 
t/6.. vol. 9, pp. 118, 121. 122. 



1920] Connecticut Cemetery InecrvptionB 53 

in the inquisition post mortem of Robert Wheelwright, cousin of 
Bev. John Wheelwright, taken 29 August 1622, that John Wheel- 
wright, derk, next heir to the deceased, was aged twenty-seven 
ywiB and more. If he had been thirty years old, it would have been 
fl>.fltftted in the inquisition. He was therefore under age not only 
vbea his father appointed him executor of his will, 13 Oct. 1611,* 
but also on 7 Mar. 1612/13, when the will was proved and admin- 
■faatioD was granted to the executor. It is probable that a com- 
plete copy of &e probate act would show that administration was 
grw>*^ to the executor in the person of his guardian. The fact 
thai Rev. John Wheelwright named his second daughter Katherine 
and hki second son Thomas increases the probability that his 
mother was Katherine, daughter of Thomas Mawer. 

When Rev. John Wheelwright returned to Eagland in 1658, he 
Sved at WiQou^by, and was the plaintiff in a fioal concord made 
in that year in regard to land and biuldings in that parish (ReoisteBi 
voL 68, page 74). Some writers have stated that he went to WU- 
kmghby because it was the home of Sir Henry Vane, his patron, but 
ft seems more likely that he went there because it was the home of 
ksB kindred. In his will he disposed of property at Croft, the home 
rf Thomas Kingerby in 1634. 

An examination of tiie Eingerby and Mawer wills proved in the 
GoDOfltoiy CJourt of Lincoln and of Lincolnshire parish registers 
would probably throw .more light on the family connections of 
Bar. John Wheelwright.

• 

Hitherto nothing conclusive has been published about the Eng- 
lish antecedents of Jeremiah Clarke of Rhode Island. The fact 
that one of his sons was named Weston, and that this name was 
borne by some of Jeremiah Clarke's grandsons and more remote 
descendants, pointed to a connection with a Weston family. There 
was a tradition, also, that his wife Frances, who was known to 
have had three husbands, William Dungan, Jeremiah Clarke^ and 
Rev. William Vaughan, had been marri^ frst to a Lord Weston. 
Barbara Dungan, a daughter of Jeremiah Clarke's wife by her 
former husband, married James Barker of Rhode Island, and their 
descendant, James Barker, wrote: ''Frances, the wife of William 
Vaugn, di^ September, 1677, in the 67th year of her age. fflie 
was the daughter of Lewis Latham. She was some time the wife 
of Lord Weston, then wife to William Dimgan, by whom she had 
one son and three daughters. . . . After William Dungan died. 
she married Mr. Jeremiah Clarke and came over to New l«^gl<^nH 
with her foiu- children above mentioned. She had by her husband 
Clarke five sons. After he died she married to a Mr. Vaugn.''t 
No record, however, of a marriage between a Lord Weston and 
Frances liitham could be found, and Morrison, in his ''Clarke 
Families of Rhode Island," suggested that Jeremiah Clarke mig^t 
have been connected with the Clarkes of Willoughby, co. Warwick, 
who at one time owned the manor of Weston, and that one of 
Frances Latham's husbands, perhaps Jeremiah Clarke himself, 
might have been a lord of the manor of Weston. 

It was in the will of James Clarke of Elast Farleigh, co. Kent, 
Gent., dated 13 July 1614 {vide supra, page 70), an abstract of whidti 

'Printed in Marriage Licences granted by the Bishop of London, rol. 1, p. 8S0 (PtMietlioms

tQuoted in Morriaon's The Clarke Families of Rhode Island, pp. 31(HI11. 



1920] Oenedlogical Research in England 73 

was published in the Registeb in Jan. 1896, and in the Clerk 

pedigree in the Visitation of London, 1633, 1634, and 1635, vol. 1, 

page 172 {Pvblicaiians of the Harleian Society, vol. 15), that the 

ehies Iciading to the discovery of the parentage and ancestry of 

Jeremiah Clarke were found. James Clarke in his will mentions a 

Weston Clarke and the latter's ''brethren," a word which indicates 

that Weston Clarke had more than one brother. The pedigree 

of Clerk of Allgate Ward, printed in the Visitafion of London, 

begins with James Clerke in co. Kent, who married Merie Saxby, 

daughter of Baron Saxby, gives James Clerke's son, William Clerke 

in CO. Kent, who married Mary Weston, daughter of Sir EQerom 

Weston, and names also two sons of this William Clerke, viz., 

Weston Clerke of London, eldest son and heir, now (1633) dead, 

w1k> married Dorcas, daughter of .... Norfolke,* and James 

Ckake ci London, grocer, 1633, ^o married Sarah Harvey and 

had a daughter, Mary Clerke, who was one year old in 1633. This 

pedigree is signed by James Clerk (the grocer of London), and at 

the top are the words: 'This descent not to be entred. refuseth to 

pay fee nephew to the Lo. Treasurer." An editorial note states 

thiit this pedigree has been erased in the original Visitation. It is 

prabttUe that the refusal of James Clerk to pay the required fee 

wae the reason for not entering the pedigree and for erasing it in 

tiie original manuscript of the Visitation. It was easily ascertained 

that the Lord Treasurer of fkigland in 1633 was Richard Weston, 

of Portland, son of Sir Jerome Weston, and in the marriage 

granted by the Bishop of London was found the licence 

for the marriage of WiUiam Clerke, Gent., and Mary Weston, 

of Sir Jerome Weston. It then remained to search the 

registers of East Farleigh, co. Kent, and there were found 

the baptisms of nine children of William Clerk, Gent., 

beginning with Weston, the eldest child, and ending with a post- 

famnoas daughter, Mary. Among them was a son Jeram {sic), 

who was the Jeremiah Clarke who emigrated to Rhode Island. 

By 'means of a pedigree printed in the Visitation of Kent, 1619, 
peoBS 2-3 (Publications of the Harleian Society, vol. 42), it is pos- 
wSbie to trace the ancestry of James Clerke of East Farleigh, who 
Merie (Mary) Saxby and was the grandfather of Jeremiah 
of Rhode Island, back for five generations, to John Clerk 
ot Forde in the parish of Wrotham, co. Kent, Esq. 

Vrom the preceding records, from the pedigrees in the Visitations 
of Kcoit and of London, and from other records and authorities 
cited bdow, the following genealogy showing the English ancestry 
of Jeraniah Clarke of Rhode Island has been compiled. 

1. John Clebk, of Forde in the parish of Wrotham, co. Kent, 
J., lived probably in the first half of the fifteenth century. 
According to Hasted (History of Kent), who wrote about 1782, 
Hall, formerly the seat of this family, lay about a mile and 
a half eastward from Wrotham church, near Addington Common,

and derived its name from the ford which crossed the brook that 
ran close by the Hall to Leyboume and thence to the Medway. 
In Hasted's time the house was occupied by a farmer. It is stfll 
standing, and contains a curious and beautiful carved staircase.*

of Tatesham of Tatesham, Esq. John Gierke was a 

baron of the Exchequer from 10 Oct. 1468 until 1470, and 
is mentioned as such in the Visitation of Kent, 1619.

Knight, and his wife Margaret. 

Margaret Moyle, relict of Walter Moyle, Knight, in her 
will dated 20 Jan. 1491 [? 1491/2] and proved at Canterbury 
1 June 1493, directs tHat her body shall be buried in the 
quire of the blessed Mary of Estewell, close to the sepulture 
of the said Walter Moyle, bequeaths 40s. to the fabrick of

Febrers, dau^ter of Sir Henry, Knight, and Margaret 
(Heckstall) and sister of Sir Edward Ferrers of Baddesley 
Clinton, co. Warwick, and Peckham, co. Kent, Knight 
(Visitation of Warwiclsshire, 1619, page 5).t The Visitation 
of Kent, 1619, erroneously states that Elizabeth, wife of 
James Clerk, was a daughter of Sir Edward Ferrers; but 
Sir Edward Ferrers in his will, dated 10 July 1535 (P. C. C, 
Hogen, 29), mentions his daughter Elizabeth as the wife of 
Jolm Hampden and also leaves a legacy to his nephew George 
Clerke.

Tbk Swett Collection op Bunker Hill Affidavits. — Mr. Artemas Ward 
of 50 Union Square, New York City, wishes to locate the collection of afBdavits. 
etc (nearly 200 items, including muster rolls, letters, certificates, etc.), gathered 
iQ 1818 by Col. Samuel Swett when he was weparing his ''Historical and Topo- 
graphical Sketch of Bunker Hill Battle." The history of this ooUection, down 
to 1883, 18, briefly, as follows: 

In 1818, on the publication of his "Sketch of Bunker Hill Battle," Colonel 
Oweit deposited his "documents and proofs" with the Boston Athenseum, in 
order that, in the words of the author's preface, "the pubhc may Judge for 
tiMDMelves." These "documents and proofs" constitute the Swett Collection 
mnA t by Mr. Ward. It is entirely separate from the collection of Bunker 
BQT affidavits or depositions taken by WiUiam Sullivan and others in 1825 and 
~ in the Proeeedinga of the Massackuaetta Historical Society , First Series, 
% pp. 230-232. The two collections are clearly differentiated in Swett's 
to the Sketch of Bunker Hill Battle," printed in the second edition of 
book^ 1825 (cf. pp. 3, note, and 10), and also in Frothingham's "Siege of 

jbl" first edition (p. 380, paragraphs 3 and 8) and later editions. 

In 1825. in his "Notes to the l^etch of Bunker Hill Battle," Colonel Swett 
id that ne copied statements from the Boston CerUinel because the originals 
of the Swett Collection now sought) "had been lost from the Boston 
They were, however, subsequently found, as is noted in manu- 
on many copies of the "Notes." 
In 1849 FVothingham made use of the Collection in the preparation of his 
_ of Boston." (See first edition, 1849, p. 121, note, and also later editions.) 
In 1883 the Collection was offered for sale for $200 in the catalogue pub- 
1 in May of that year by the late C. L. Woodward, then of 78 Nassau Street, 
Yoric Cit^; but Mr. Ward has not been able to find out when the Colleo- 
was sokl from the Woodward stock or who bought it. An annotated set of 
Woodward catalogues is in the possession of the American Antiquarian 
Society, Worcester, Mass., and the manuscript notes in the catalogue for May 
1883 name the bu3rers of a majority of the titles but, unfortunately, not the 
bimr of the Swett Collection. 

Mr. Ward has foimd no trace of the Collection after 1883. An^ information 
abooi it or any due to its whereabouts will be gratefully appreciated by him.

8t Peter, Sudbury, 23 Dec. 1630, was of Portsmouth and Newport,

ter of Caleb Littlefield, Esq., a member of the New Shoreham Com- 
mittee of Correspondence and a descendant of EJdmond littiefield, 
one of the early settlers at Wells, Me.* The births of three sons 
and three dau^ters of Edmimd and Mercy Sheffield are recorded 
at New Shoreham. 

George Gardiner^ Sheffield, second son and second child of 
E(hnimd,* was bom 24 February 1792, and married, 4 January 1816, 
Eliza, daughter of William L. (a farmer of New Shoreham) and Mary 
(Clark) Paine. In early life Mr. Sheffield was a Jeffersonian Demo- 
crat, but in 1856 he associated himself with the newly-formed Repub- 
lican Party. He was active in town affairs and in politics, and held 
various offices of trust and honor, serving for several terms as 
representative of his town in the General Assembly of Rhode 
Island. He died in 1871 at South L3rme, Conn., which had been 
his home for the few years immediately preceding his death. 

William Paine* Sheffield, of Newport, son of George Ganliner' 
and father of the subject of this memoir, was bom in tlie town of New 
Shoreham (Block Island) 29 August 1819, and died at his home in 
Newport 2 June 1907. He was educated at the Kingstown (R. I.) 
Academy and by private tutors, and then entered upon the study 
of law. While still a very young man he began his political career, 
serving in 1841 as a delegate to the ''Landholders' Convention," 
which met for the purpose of preparing a new constitution for the 
State, and being in 1842 a member of the General Assembly, where 
he took a firm stand for law and order as opposed to ''Dorrism/' In 
1843 and 1844, while he was pursuing his studies in law, he was 
again a member of the General Assembly from New Shoreham. He 
was a student at the Harvard Law School for a part of the 3rear 
1844, and in the same year was admitted to the Rhode Island bar. 
He began the practice of his profession at Tiverton, R. I., and repre- 
sented that town in the lower branch of the Rhode Island Legislature 
in 1849, 1851, and 1852. Removing soon afterwards to Newport, he 
was elected to the General Assembly from that city, serving from 
1857 to 1861, when he took his seat as a member of the House of 
Representatives in the Thirtynseventh Congress (4 July 1861- 
3 March 1863), to which he had been elected, as a Unionist, in 1860. 
After the expiration of his congressional term he was again elected, 
in 1863, to represent Newport in the General Assembly of Rhode 
Island, and, with the exception of the years 1873 and 1874, was re- 
elected annually to the Assembly, until 1884. Governor Bourn then 
appointed him to the seat in the United States Senate made vacant 
by the death of Henry Bowen Anthony, and he took his seat 2 
December 1884 and served until 20 January 1885, when a senator 
was elected by the Legislature. In the Rhode Island General 
Assembly Mr. Sheffield was an able member of the standing commit- 
tee of the House on the Judiciary, and in 1869 he served on a select 
committee to revise the laws of the State. He was a ready speaker 
and wrote many important monographs on legal and historical 
subjects. He was prominent in the affairs of his home city, and 
was a leader in finance, the oldest member of the corporation of the

Sedwood library, president and director of the People's Free 
lihraiy, vice-president of the Newport Historical Society, a member 
of the Society of the Cincinnati, and chairman of the committee 
appointed to receive in Rhode Island the French delegates who 
came to the United States to take part in the celebration of the one 
hmidredth anniversary of the surrender of Comwallis at Yorktown. 
From Brown University he received the honorary degrees of Master 
of Arts and of Doctor of Laws. In 1847 he married Lilias White 
Sanford, daughter of Samuel and Susan (Bodge) Sanford of Boston 
and a descendant of John Sanford, who was one of the earliest 
of Rhode Island and president of Portsmouth and Newport 
May 1653 to May 1654. 

W illiam Paine* Sheffield, the subject of this memoir, only son of 
Wniiam Paine^ and Lilias White (Sanford), received his early educa- 
tkm in private schools in his native city, entered PhiUips Andover 
Academy, where he was graduated with honor in 1873, and then 
was admitted to Brown University, where he won the degree of Bach- 
dor of Arts in 1877, graduating with the highest honors. In 1880 
his alma maier conferred on him the degree of Master of Arts. He 
studied dvil and Boman law at the University of Paris, and, on his 
vetam from abroad, continued his law studies at the Harvard Law 
Sdiooly where he was enrolled as a student in 1878-9, and in the 
office of his father. He was admitted to the Rhode Island bar 1 
March 1880, and continued in the active practice of his profession 
until a abort time before his death. Since the death of his father, 
IB 1007, he had been the head of the law firm of Sheffield and Harvey, 
of Newport. 

In 1S80 Mr. Sheffield began a long career of faithful public service 
hf acc^ting an appointment to the office of State commissioner on 
tihe affairs of the Narragansett Indians. He held this position until 
1884, and in the performance of its duties gained a thorough knowl- 
edge of this Indian tribe. In 1885-1887, 1889-90, and 1894-1896 
he was a member of the lower house of the General Assembly of 
Bliode Island, where his work on the Judiciary Conmiittee was 
o^iedaUy valuable. In 1885-1887 he was also aide-de-camp, with 
the rank of colonel, on the staff of Gov. George Peabody Wetmore. 
In ISra he was elected city solicitor of Newport, and held this office 
for several years. In 1897 he served on the commission to revise 
the constitution of the State. In 1906, when the new city charter 
of Newport went into effect. Colonel Sheffield was elected a member 
of the Representative Council from Ward Three of Newport, for the 
one-year term, and was reelected to the Council in 1907 for the 
tenn of three years. At the beginning of his first term in the Coimcil 
he was diosen imanimously to be its presiding officer, and continued 
to inneside over the Council during the two years in which he retained 
his membership in that body. In 1908 he was elected, as a Repub- 
hean, to represent the First Congressional District of Rhode Island 
in the United States House of Representatives, in the Sixty-first 
Congress, taking his seat in December 1909 and serving imtil the end 
of this Congress in March 1911. But in the congressional elections 
of 1910 he was defeated as a candidate for reelection, and he was 



86 WtUiam Paine Sheffield [April 

again defeated in 1912, when the defection of the Progressives insured 
in so many districts the election of the Democratic candidates. The 
confidence which his party reposed in him was shown, however, by 
his selection in 1911 to be a member of the Republican National 
Conmiittee, and he continued to hold this position imtil his death. 
He was also a member of the committee to revise the constitution 
of the State. 

In educational matters Mr. Sheffield early showed a lively 
interest. From 1885 to 1894 he was a member of the Newport 
School Committee, being its chairman for part of this time. He 
reaUzed the importance of manual training in the public schools, 
and, with others, established and maintained at Newport a system 
of private instruction for boys in wood-working. From 1886 on he 
was a director of the Redwood Library and its secretary for several 
years, and he was also president of the People's Library. He was an 
authority on the early history of Newport, and an interesting speaker 
on topics relating to it. 

He was connected with many charitable and financial institutions, 
was one of the alumni trustees of Brown University, a member of the 
American Bar Association, a member and secretary of the Rhode 
Island Society of the Cincinnati, in which he succeeded his father, 
and a vestryman of Emmanuel Church. 

Mr. Sheffield married, 16 October 1889, Mary Stevens Burdick, 
who survives him, daughter of Jonathan Truman and Emily (Sher- 
man) Burdick. All of their eight children survived their father, but 
the eldest, Margaret Burdick, died in Boston, after a brief illness, 
26 January 1920. The other children are William Paine, a graduate 
of Brown University and a lawyer associated with his father's- law 
firm, Mary Morse, Samuel Sanford, a graduate of Brown University 
in the Claiss of 1919, now in business in New York, Lilias Sanford, 
Katherine Ray, Frances, and Elizabeth. His two sons were lieu- 
tenants in the United States Army in the World War, the elder son 
serving for several months in France. Mr. Sheffield's sister, Mrs. 
Mary (Sheffield) Moriarty, widow of the late George Andrews 
Moriarty, Esq., also survives him. 

The conmiunity in which Mr. Sheffield lived appreciated at its true 
value his well-spent life and realized the loss that it had sustained in 
his death. His personal characteristics are thus described in a 
biographical sketch published in the local newspaper: 

''Mr. Sheffield was of an unusually genial and happy disposition, and his 
hospitality knew no bounds. His home life was ideal, and to his children he 
was always a friend and companion who shared with them their pleasures 
and activities. In his home and at the camps in which he entertained his 
many friends he was a charming host, always considerate, ever solicitous of 
their enjoyment of the many things he shared with them. In every gathering 
in which he participated for business puiposes, he was ever an agreeable 
entertainer as well as an associate to whom his fellow directors or trustees 
looked for advice on a wide range of topics. . To the various public 

offices which he had held he brought wide experience in affairs to the success- 
ful performance of the manifold and arduous duties which he was called upon 
to discharge. In the legal profession, not only of Newport but of the state, 
he was recognized as a leader and his success at the bar for many years was 



1020] The Erakine Family of Bristol, Me, 87 

due not only to his extensive legal knowledge but also to the thoroughness 
of detail and the technical skill which were manifest in every case in which 
he was engaged. ... In everything in which he engaged he was to a 
malted degree a dependable, earnest, efficient and valuable worker . . . . 
He waa above all a man who did all he could for his fellow-man, in whatever 
eondition he found him."* 

And the same paper^ in an editorial article, says of Mr. Sheffield: 

'^ew men have a wider range of reading and study, few a more varied 
knoiHedge of men and experience of life in all its aspects. Few possess so 
jmigft a fond of reminiscence and anecdote, ready at a moment's call, and few 
enjoy more ^nuinely the telling of a good story or the cracking of an inno- 
eent lofce. This made him an unusuafiy charmmg companion and conversa- 
tkmalint, and in any company where he might be found he was fairly certain 
to be al or near the centre of interest. Withal he was serious-minded, 
•eholaily, thoughtful, and deeply rehgious — a well-rounded, well-balanced 



Tbosihly both the manner and the place of his death would have been of 
Us own efaoioe. A man of affairs, full of the zest of life, whenever his work 
riKMild be done he would not have cared to linger idle on the stage. A lover 
of natore and of nature's sweet solitude and tender intimacies, he had found 
neat delist and comfort in recent years in his summer camp in Exeter. 
what more fitting, perhaf^ in his own thought, than that ms last wsJk 
dwahi be tiirou^ the familiar woods, that his last moments should be spent 
the lake which he had come so to love?"

THE DUNNINGS OF MAINE 

Bj Rev. Everett Schermerhorn Stackpolb, A.M., D.D., of Bath, Me. 

Thb following genealogy makes various additions to accounts pre- 
Tioiisly published of Andrew Dunning of Brunswick, Me., and his 
descendants, and corrects many erroneous statements about this 
famfly iJtiat have appeared in print. 

Dunning is an old, Anglo-Saxon clan name. Dunnington, a hamlet 
of Warwickshire, England, was probably the home of the clan in that 
eoimty, and is mentioned in records of the twelfth century. In 
York^ure, about the same time, a place called Dunningsley is found. 
In Scotlfl^d, not far from Inverness, is the town of Dunning. The 
surname Dunning was common in Dorset in the sixteenth century, 
and a little later it is foimd in Devonshire. The Scottish records 
mention persons named Dunning very frequently in the fifteenth 
and sixteenth centuries. Robert Dunning was a member of the 
Scottish Parliament in 1472, 1475, and 1482. James, son of the 

* Marie LouIm C«mpion wm bom in Fnnoe. 



98 The Dunninga of Maine [April 

late John Dunning, was apprenticed to David Dunning, saddler, of 
Edinburgh in 1597. 

Many Scotch families passed over to the northern part of Ireland 
about the year 1600. Andrew Dimning was buried at Lough Deny 
22 May 1662. His daughter Mary was buried 6 June 16^, as the 
register of Deny Cathedral, parish of Templemore, .Londonderry, 
L^land, declares. 

Some have tried to connect the Dimnings of Maine with the family 
of Lord Ashburton, but all evidence is against the claim. John 
Dunning of Ashburton, lawyer, was bom in 1700 'and died in 1780. 
His son John was bom 18 Oct. 1731, was admitted to the "Rngligh 
bar in 1756, was elected member of Parliament in 1768, married 
Elizabeth Baring in 1780, was elevated to the peerage in 1782, and 
died at Exmouth, England, 18 Aug. 1783. He was celebrated for 
his eloquence and legal abilities. His lands and titles were inherited 
by his only surviving son, Richard Barr Dimning, who was bom 20 
Sept. 1782, married 17 Sept. 1805 Anna, daughter of William 
Cimningham, and died without issue 15 Feb. 1823. He bequeathed 
the portions of his estate which had long been in the Dunning family 
to the nearest collateral male heir, if such heir could be found within 
three months of the testator's death. John Dimning of London, 
retailer of beer, proved his claim to the estate, and his descendants 
were living upon it in 1852, as is learned from a letter of George F. 
Dunning of Farmington, Conn., who visited Ekigland in that year 
and searched in vain for his ancestors. The Dunning family of 
Maine sent over a representative to investigate their right to the 
above-named estate, which imagination claimed to be worth fifty 
miUions of dollars. No Dunning in America had any claim.whatever 
to the estate and no connection whatever with the Dunning family 
of Ashburton, except through the ancient clan. 

There were Dunnings in New England at an early date. George 
Dunning was a settler at New Haven, Ck)nn., as early as 1644, owning 
a part of the present campus of Yale University. His descendants 
are numerous. Benjamin Dimning, dealer in leather, had a son 
Benjamin, who was bom in Boston, 'Mass., 3 Mar. 1679. He 
probably went to Stratford, Conn., and to Long Island. His brother, 
John Dimning, settled at Newtown, Conn. A younger brother, 
Michael Dunning, is said to have married Margaret Foster at Jamaica, 
Long Island, in 1710, and to have settled at Goshen, Orange Co., 
N. Y., in 1714, where he had sons, Jacob, Samuel, James, and MichaeL 
Hick Dunning married at Hingham, Mass., 7 Dec. 1669, Sarah Joy, 
daughter of Thomas and Joan (Gallop), and had a son, Edmund, who 
was bom at Hingham 31 Mar. 1672.* Jonathan Dunning was a 
soldier in King PhiUp's War in 1676. 

It is quite clear that the Dunning family of Bmnswickf came over 
with the so-called Scotch-Irish immigrants of 1717-18 from London- 
derry, Ireland. The military enrolment of Andrew Dunning and 
his sons in 1723 declares that they came from Ireland. But, although

Maine, unless another State or region is indicated in the text or may be easily inferred from the 
eontezt. 



1820] The Dunninga of Maine 99 

sometimes called Irish, they were all Scotch, who had Uved for one 
or two generations in Ireland. 

1. Andrew* Dunning, bom about 1664, died at Brunswick 18 
Jan. 1736 [71736/7], aged 72 years. He married, according to tradi- 
tion, Susan Bond, who perished in the burning of her house a year 
after her husband's death. A negro slave narrowly escaped death 
at the same time. 

Andrew Dunning came to New England in 1717, and in that year 
bmif^t lots in the town of Brunswick, as the records of the Pejepscot 
Company declare. The following year, as it seems, his family came 
over with the immigrants from the north of Ireland. His son, David 
Donning, aged 86 in 1793, testified that he had Uved in Brunswick 
"ever ainpe I was a boy of twelve years of age." On 8 Oct. 1767 the 
flune David Dunning deposed "that on or about the year 1718 I 
eame first to Boston and in the same vessel with Mr. Andrew Mc- 
Fa^en and his wife (who is now a widow) and that soon after we 
cttne to Boston we came down together in the same vessel to the 
eastern country; that the said McFadden and his wife went to live at 
i fdaoe in merry meeting bay called Somersett. — ^The deponent adds 
that he has lived in the town of Brunswick constantly ever since the 
year one thousand seven himdred and eighteen and within ten or 
fifteen miles of Somersett aforesaid."* 

The ship MaceuUum, James Law, master, arrived at Boston from 
Londonderry, Ireland, 1 Sept. 1718. The same ship sailed from 
Boston to Meiry Meeting Bay on 8 Sept. 1718. Rev. James Wood- 
ade in 1723 said in a petition that ''he with 40 families, consisting of 
ibove 160 persons did in the year 1718 embarque on a ship at Derry 
Louf^ in Ireland in order to erect a colony at Casco Bay, in your 
Majestys Province of Main in New England. That being arrived 
they made a settlement at a place called by the Indians Pegipscot, 
but by them Brunswick, within 4 miles from Fort George, where he 
had a garrison house." 

Tliat garrison house was built by the Pejepscot Company at 
Maonoit, on Middle Bay, in the southerly part of Brunswick. Near 
by Andrew Dunning bought his lots and built his house, on the farm 
occupied in 1878 by Patrick McManus. Here he Uved as a black- 
smith and farmer, '' much respected for his integrity and uprightness 
of Character." He was buried in the old cemetery near the first 
meeting house, on Main Street, a mile or so south of Bowdoin College, 
uui lus gravestone is said to be the oldest one in Brunswick and to 
have been made by his son James. The inscription reads as follows: 

Here lyeth the Body of Mr Andrew Diming who departed this life 
lanawary the 18th Anno Dom 1736 aged 72 Yrs.

2. Lieut. James' Dunning (Andrew^) , of Brunswick, bom in 1691, 

died 8 June 1752. He married Martha LiTHaow, daughter 
of Capt. Robert, as tradition, supported by the McKeen 
Manuscripts, says. He lived on the homeste^ at Maquoit. 
He was selectman in 1739, 1743, and 1746. He was com- 
missioner to the General Court in 1747, a soldier in Captain 
Giles's company in 1723-24, and afterwards a lieutenant in the 
militia. It was, perhaps, his widow whose intention of mar- 
riage to Wait Herrick of Nobletown was published 5 Apr. 1759.

York, 26 Nov. 1724, Deborah Donnell, daughter of Benjamin 
and Mary (Harmon)* of York and granddaughter of Thomas 
Donnell. Deborah (Donnell) Dunning died in 1771, in the 
67th year of her age, ^'deserving," as her gravestone saySf 
''the best character as a wife, a mother, a neighbor and a 
Christian, and will be remembered with great affection and 
esteem by all who knew her." William Dunmng came to 
Brunswick in 1718, but the attacks of the Indians in 1724 
induced him to settle at York.

with his father, first wife, brother James, and several children 
in the old cemetery, a mile or so south of Bowdoin Ck>llege. 
The inscriptions on their slate gravestones are still legible. He 
married first, in Boston, Mass., 5 Dec. 1735 (Rev. John 
Moorhead, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, where the 
marriage is recorded, officiating). Mart Todd, who died 16 
Aug. 1784, aged 74, probably daughter of John and Rachel 
(Nelson) and sister of Andrew Todd of Londonderry, N. H., 
and of Capt. Alexander Todd of Boston; and secondly, 29 
Jan. 1788, Mrs. Mary (Lithgow) Hunter, daughter of Capt. 
Robert Lithgow and widow of Capt. Adam Hunter of Topsham. 
She was a sister of the wife of David Dimning's brother James 
(2). David Dimning and his second wife were both over 
eighty years of age at the time of their marriage. 

David Dimning came to Brunswick in 1718. He was a 
soldier in Captain Giles's company in 1723-4, when seventeen 
years of age. He owned a large part of the land where the 
village of Brunswick now stands, having bought, 25 Sept. 
1730, of Rowling Norton of Salisbury, Mass., 97 acres "border- 
ing on Amos cogen river," as the deed says. This Norton had 
served with him in Captain Giles's company. On 10 Oct. 
1735 David Dunning sold land in Londonderry, N. H., and 
this indicates, perhaps, a short residence in that place. (Cf . 
deed at Concord, N. H.) 

He built a garrison house in Brunswick, near the spot where 
the town hall now (1920) stands, and the site has been marked 
with an appropriate historical tablet. "It was two stories 
high, forty feet long, and twenty-two feet wide. The second 
story projected about three or four feet over the first, and the 
walls had loop-holes for the purpose of enabling the inmates 
to fire upon the Indians when necessity required. There was 
a tower on the top, from which the teams could be watched on 
their way to and from the Merriconeag Marshes." (History 
of Brunswick, p. 634.) 

In this garrison all his children were bom. In 1772 he 
built a house near his garrison, on Main Street, and here he 
died. Here also his son John kept a tavern, calling it "Wash- 
ington Hall." It was burned in 1856. When Fort George 
was dismantled in 1761, David Dunning and Jeremiah Moulton 
bright the site for £133. 6s. 8d. They owned the water 
power on both sides of the river and built the first dam and 
sawmill. Fort George stood where the big cotton mill now 
stands, at the lower end of Main Street. 

An old record says that David Dunning "was one of the most 
active, enterprising and respected men of his time." He was 
a deacon in the Congregational Church, the first representative 
of Brunswick in the General Court of Massachusetts, in 1742-3, 
a member of the first Board of Selectmen in 1739, a selectman 
again in 1741 and 1749, and town clerk in 1762. He appears 
as lieutenant in the mihtia in 1746 and was commissioned 
captain by Governor Shirley about 1748. Later in life he

was captain of an ''Alarm Company." In Jan. 1755 h 
served twenty-one days in helping to transport stores for th 
soldiers at Forts Western and Halifax, in Augusta and Winslo^ 
hauling these stores by handsleds on the ice from Arrowsic. L 
lumbenng and military expeditions he learned the value c 
the surrounding country, and, when the town of Royalsborougli 
now Durham, was planned in 1762, he bought one-sixteentl 
of the township. In the division of lots he drew, among othen 
Lot 91, in the northern part of the town, and in 1783 he gav 
a deed of it, 75 acres, to his daughter, EUzabeth Stackpole. 

A pewter platter, inscribed with the initials D. D., is in th 
possession, of the Stack{>ole family, and Mrs. EUzabeth (Duo 
ning) Alexander of Harpswell had, in 1900, a silver spoon witi 
the initisJs A. D., which Andrew Dimning brought with hii 
m 1717.

JOHN DEVEREUX OF MARBLEHEAD, MASS.. 
AND SOME OF HIS DESCENDANTS 

By Mrs. Frank M. Anoellotti of San Rafael, Cal. 

Thih article docs not claim to be a record of all the descendants d 
.Jrihn Dovercux of Salem and Marblehead,t or even of all of those 
who Htill Ijear the Devereux name. Many gaps in the family history 
v.<}\i\(l not be filled, as connecting links were missing in public records 
anrl private records were not always available. It is hoped that 
(IcHcendants of John Devereux who do not find their names in the 
following pages will communicate with the compiler of this genealogy. 

*Arrorrling to Rbomtcr, vol. 12, p. 57, Nath&niel Little's daughter Faith, who died Dei. 27, 
17A;<, agad 8 month*, liea buried on hia left. 

t All plaeeN fiientioned in thia article are tituated within the preeent limits of the CcHnmoik- 
wealUi of Massaehusetts, unless another State or region is indicated in the text or t»my be easily 
Infrrred from ths context. 



1920] Descendants of John Devereux 115 

1. JoHN^ Devereux, of Salem and Marblehead, fanner, was 
bcnm probably about 1615,* came to New England about 1630, per- 
haps m the fleet with Winthrop, and died between 24 Dec. 1694, 
wiien he deposed in court, and 20 May 1695, when his will was 

proved. He married Ann , bom about 1620, who survived 

mm and died at Marblehead 26 Apr. 1708, in her 88th year.f 

John Devereux of Marblehead, a^ed about 80 years, deposed on 
21 Dec; 1694 "yt about ye yeare of Our Lord One thousand and six 
hundred and thirty I came over from old England to New England, 
k ye place of my abode and residence has since been Salem & Marble- 
head.'' (Essex C!ourt Files.) The first grant of land to him was in 
Salem, in 1636. In 1637 a half acre was granted to ^rn for a dwelling 
hoiSBe. He was at Marblehead in 1637. He first rented and &ially 
purchased, in 1659, the land in Marblehead which had belonged to 
Bev. Hugh Peters and which was afterwards known as the ''Devereux 
iann.'' Tlie old house there is commemorated by Longfellow in 
Us poem called "Driftwood." After John Devereux's death this 
iann was claimed by Elizabeth Barker of Deptf ord, England, daugh- 
ter and heir of Rev. Hugh Peters, as is set forth below in the records 
idating to the estate of John Devereux; and Robert Devereux, son 
of John, was at last compelled to buy again, for £350 sjberling, the 
land for which his father had already paid. John Devereux's name 
wpears fnHn time to time in the records and files of the coiurts of 
EfiBex County, Mass., sometimes as a witness and sometimes as 
plaintiflF or defendant in cases coming before these courts.^ He 
was admitted as freeman 16 May 1683. 

Hie will of John Devereux, omitting the customary religious 
phrases and certain legal expressions, is as follows :§ 

'In the Namb of God Amen the fourth day of September in y« yeare of 
oar lord 1693 ... I John Devereux of marblehead in the County 
of Essex in New ei^land Yeoman . . . Doe make . . . And Declare, 
this my last Will and testament ... I give and bequeath unto my Sonn 
Bobert Devereux two thirdes of all my land within the Stonnwall now Iving 
in Marblehead being three hundred Acres more or less with my now dwd^ing 
house and Bame, only I giv unto my Son Roberts Son Joseph twenty Acres 
(tf iMid within y« Stonn wall which is out of the two thirds of my Son Kob^ts 
land before meDtioned which land l3dng next to marblehead comon Jynin^ 
to my land without the Stonn wall, when he shall be: 21 yeares of a^, to 
them and there heires (All the land abovementioned) in way of mtale 
forever and ever. And to remaine in the family and name of the Devereuxes 
from generation to generation in way of intale fforever and ever Item I 

Sive and bequeath unto the three sonns of my Sonn Humphiy Devereux 
eceasd that is to say John Humphry and Ralph Devereux one third imrt of 
my land; and meddow that is now before my, now, dwelhng hous, within the 



*See deposition of 1094, given below. His age is given also as 45 in 1666 and as 55 in 1672; 
and at the March Term, 1669, and the November Term, 1670, he deposed, aged 50 years (Vital 
Reeoffda of Marblehead, vol. 3, p. 34). It seems, therefore, impossible to determine the exact 
Tear of his birth from the records thus far discovered. 

t She deposed in June 1664, aged about 43 years, in Sept. 1666, aged 46 srears. and in June 
1667, aged about 46 srears. (Vital Records of Marblehead, vol. 8, p. 84.)

eoK had lawfully purchased, as he believed, in 1659, was claimed after 
hii death lyy Miabeth Barker of Deptford, England, dau^ter and

A NEW ENGLAND TEMPLE OF HONOR* 

By Hon. Jambb Phinnet Baxter, A.M.. Litt. D., 
Pkwdent of the New England Historic Genealogical Society 



OF THB New England Histobic Genealogical So- 
oxTT, Ladies and Gentlebcen: 

We have assembled to celebrate the seventy-fifth anniversary of 
Society in this Pilgrim year, so fraught with precious memories 
€f an event the most important in the annals of New England save 
tihe hiwHng of Winthrop, and which will prove to be an aclmowledged 
iMIJmlion to the world if we are able to live up to the ideals of our 
iwefathpfs; hence I may be pardoned for repeating the trite saying 
ttat history is but the record of God's providence, as its repetition 
flannot fail to be useful until it takes its place among the self-evident 
tratlw of the human mind. 

In the history of nations there is none in which this truth is more 

appaient than in our own, since never before has there been a like 

epportunity afforded to develop a form of government in which the 

aspiiations of men could find free play. In the Old World 

governments, devised for the aggrandizement of a privi- 

daas, have been instrumental in submerging many of their 

task aobjectSi which checked their growth and impaired their stability. 

James Stuart succeeded EUzabeth Tudor in the royal govem- 

of England, he brought with him ill-conceived theories of govern- 

which contributed largely toward precipitating the great revo- 

fataon m which his son was brought to the block and England made a 

nffukXic. Elisabeth had been autocratic enough, but she had been 

w e lj f restrained by that greatest of English statesmen, William Cecil, 

! vlile her successor came under the influence of lesser men, who 

rijgred upon the weak points which he so conspicuously displayed. 

ffii CBKearBioiis into the fields of theological controversy, bnngmg him 

ixmtact with sectarians of extreme views, stimulated his zeal to 

his own opinions, and, as dissent from the more rigid and 

artifidal forms of doctrine was increasing, he adopted the unwise 

poiiQr of expatriation, which resulted in the ever memorable landing 

on rljrmoutn Rock, the Winthrop colony, and the founding of New 

Eogjand. 

Never in the history of any country has so remarkable a body 
of men as the Pilgrims and the Puritans been so providentially 
brought together to build a nation; for, whatever may be said to the 
OQQtnuy, history makes evident the fact that the spirit of New 
England is the true Americanism which is to-day the spirit of the 
Natkm, for it has been aptly said of these pioneers that God sifted the 
belt seed of Old England for planting New Eng^d. 

In this hearing it hardly seems proper to eulogize these men; they 
need no'etUogy here. For some time, and especially during the 
put year, there has been a persistent attempt to defame and belittle 

ddhrwtd in Focd Hall. Aahbnrton PUoe, Boston. 18 Mar. 1990. at the oelebratioii of 
aanlfiiMiy of tho iaeorporation of tho Now EnglanH Hklorio Gonoalocieal

the Pilgrim and the Puritan, who together rightly earned the title of 
New England's Founders. Certainly their descendants do not desiie 
to exaggerate the virtues of their ancestors. They would, however, 
shield them from misrepresentation. 

That they wrought faithfully under hardships and privatioiiB to 
lay the f oimdation of a great conmionwealth we have the evideaoBi 
about us after nearly three centuries. If they sometimes made mis- 
takes, their accomplishments cast their errors into the shade, and 
these should not be dragged forth by carping critics to obscure their 
virtues. 

The institutions of learning, in which we class not only our schooky 
our colleges, and churches, but our antiquarian, historical, and gaoBBr 
logical societies, wiU see to the preservation of the true historv of 
the b^nningR of our national history, and none other more faithndjljr 
n this 



than this Society, whose foimders had this single object in 

study and preservation of the memories of &08e whose spirit has 

stamped itself ineffaceably upon the consciousness of New Wn|^nd> 

The memory 6{ these men, whose ideal was the creation of a eom- 
monwealth in which all men loyal to God and the brotheriiood of maa 
should enjoy imder His providence civil Uberty and the e x e r cM e of 
the rights of private conscience, is especially precious to this Sode^. 
Three years ago, as you know, I advocated the erection of a memorial 
building or Temple of Honor, to commemorate them on this tat* 
centenary of the landing at Plymouth. Several meetings were hdd to 
' discuss the subject, but the great World War broke upon us, and ft 
was found impossible to carry out the project at this time. 

Though it is evident that a memorial building in honor of the 
Fathers of New England cannot be erected for some time to come, ft is 
certain that it will be at a future day, and I am calling the attentioo 
of this Society to the subject on this, as it seems to me, most fittiiig 
occasion, that it may be recorded and serve as a reminder of its 
importance to those who wQl succeed us. 

This Society, I know, will of necessity lead in this great work, and 
its accomplishment will be of incalculable importance to the pec^ib 
of New England, and, reflectively, to the Nation, many of whon 
ideals derived from the Fathers of New England have inqxred it in 
achieving its present position among the nations of the wtxUL Tbe 
men who in the early part of the seventeenth century landed oo our 
North American shores were men of vision, animated by a great 
purpose* the founding of conmionwealths, and their desoendantB, 
inheriting the virtues of their fathers, biased a path throof^ tiie vast 
wilderness which barred their way to the West, until tbej readied 
the golden gates of the Pacific, and made it possible to exdaim: 

"No f^nt-up Utica contimct? our poffreffs. 
For tbe whole hoimdlMS contizietit is cun^'* 

Thetse men. with hearts throbbing with the blood of the Flalhen 
of New En^and. and insf^ned by their ideals, have given to the Nation 
many of its noblest characteristics, which must be cheris h e d and pte- 
j^erred if it is tq lead as the ejcemplar of liberty. Justice, and Brother- 
hood among the nations of the world. But to accompliah this these 
d<tM^endants of New England fathers must be imited m the purpose 



1820] A New England Temple of Honor 123 

niuoh three centuries ago animated the men in the Uttle cabin of the 
MmgfUnweTf when they signed their names to that remarkable declarar 
tkm of principles which gave vitality to our national constitution. 
We have reached a period when without the cooperation of the 
milliniiB who bear the blood of the Founders of New England our 
U^ hopes for the future welfare of this country may fail of fruition. 
Tlie pdh<7 of this Society should be to encourage this union. 

Let us r^ect upon what has happened since the day when we 
adueved our independence, and threw wide our gates wil^ an aU too 
g me i ou s impulse of hospitality. Actuated by a laudable ambition to 
better their condition, vast niunbers of the people of all parts of the 
WQtld, who had been oppressed by too exacting laws, flocked to our 
dKmSy many of them valuable additions to our population. Among 
tfasm, however, were many who, unfit to avail themselves of the bless- 
iiB of feeegovemment, have proved to be a menace to the Nation's 
welfare. These advocates and supporters of theories attractive to 
latniiiyd minds, if not checked, may be the cause of a destructive 
levolution. ^ How can this be met successfully? The only answer is, 
fagr instruction in the principles which actuated the men and women 
1^ laid the foundations of these free commonwealths, whose prin- 
cqiks have been wrought into our national constitution, which 
marchiflts and their aUies would destroy and substitute in its place a 
dung of their own, in which License would take the place of Liberty, 
Ghas Favoritism the place of Equality, and the Nullification of 
Property Sights the place of Justice. During the past few years we 
have been receiving a larger percentage thim ever before of imde- 
naUe immigrants, and now that the war ha23 closed, the nations 
in it will hold back their able men and burden us with the 
and feeble unless Congress puts up sufficient barriers against 
tiMOiy which it is imlikely to do. « 

To the men whom dangerous theorists are daily making their dupes 
the history of the Founders of our Nation is a closed book, and I 
believe that the most effective way to deprive the dangerous advo- 
cates of false theories of government of an audience is to instruct the 
minformed in the principles of those who created the early history of 
our country. Our churches, our schools, all our philanthropic 
are doing good work in this field, but they cannot sufficiently 
the uninstructed masses of our varied population. They 
mnBt be reached by readier means; and few will deny that a building 
ndi as I have advocated would not only be a pious tribute to our 
forefathers but a most effective method of instruction to the masses 
iriio would throng its pictorial halls, which would visualize to them 
not only those who devoted their Uves to making here a refuge for the 
o pprc B Qcd of all lands, but the striking events of our history. Such a 
temple would exert an educational influence upon the uninstructed of 
incalculable worth. 

Of course you will agree that sucli a structure should be of imposing 
diaiBcter, emphasizing the worthiest expression of strength, dignity, 
and simidicity ; that it should be built of material from New Eli^land 
quarries, wrought by the hands of New England people, and adorned 
hj the skill of New England artists; and that upon its walls should be

pictorially recorded the chief events of New England history — the 
hnding at Plymouth, at Cape Ann, at Salem, at Boston, the geDesb 
ot Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hwipshire, Connecticut, and Maine. 
In fact, this building should not only be a memorial of New England's 
benefactors and a credit to its builders, but it should also be a mcmu- 
ment to the skill and art of New England in the twentieth century. 
^ I submit this to you, my friends, and to our successors, who in due 
time, I have full faith, will carry out this plan with such modification 
as they may deem wise.

Addendum: The Weston Familt 

Through his mother, Mary Weston, Jeremiah Clarke of Rhode 
Island was related to the Weston family, an Essex family of great 
prominence in the reigns of the later Tudors and early Stuarts. 
Richard Weston, uncle of Jeremiah Clarke, was lord hi|^ treasurer 
of England, and was created by King Charles I Earl of Portland. 
He and several other members of the family were Roman Catholics, 
either secretly or openly, and in the Civil War most <rf them lyere 
stanch Royalists. Much information about the family may be 
foimd in English books, especially in Morant's "History and Anth 
quities of the County of Essex," Waters's "GenealogiGBd Memoiit 
of the Extinct Family of Chester of Chicheley," "The ^^sitatioDi of 

*Hit fixrt wife, Mercy . wm bora in 1031 and died 21 Se^ 1075.

:" (Publications of the HarUian Society, vols. 13 and 14), and 
die "Dictionary of National Biography/' and it is chiefly from these 
luihorities that the following Weston pedigree has been compiled, 
!ar the purt)06e of presenting to the readers of the Register an 
leooimt of some of the noteworthy English connections of the 
Sliode Island settler. 

According to-Morant (op. cU,, vol. 2, pp. 70-71, 171, reprint of 
1816) tiie family to which Mary Weston and her brother, the Earl 
ol Portiand, belonged was descended from Michael de Weston, 
ivbo settled in Essex about 14 Edward I [1286]. The claim that he 
qpnng from an ancient family of Westons in Staffordshire must be 
rejected. Humfret de Weston, one of Michael's sons, established 
himself at Prested Hall, in Feering, co. Essex, where he was Uving 
in 1360 and where his descendants flourished until the beginning of 
the seventeenth century. In the early years of the sixteenth cen- 
tmy Prested Hall was held by WiUiam Weston (1), with whom 
the following pedigree begins. 

1. William Weston, of Prested Hall, Feering, co. Essex, and 
of London, mercer, died between 20 June 1514, the date of his will, 
lad 6 Feb. 1514/15, when his will was proved: He married Mabgaret 

• , who was living 20 June 1514, but from his will it is appar- 

ontly to be inferred that she was not his first wife. 

In his will he directs that if he dies in the parish of All Hallows, 
Soa^ Lane, London, he is to be buried in the churchyard ''between 
mj father's seller window and the bordyd dore of my parlor, as 
nigh unto the Church wall as may be." He bequeaths to the 
^'Masyndewe" [Maison Dieu] at Dover, on condition that the Master 
lad Brethren pray for the souls of Sir Harry Overe, John Chapman, 
Robert Basey, and Agnes Sislington. He bequeaths to his cousin 
Foan with his sister at Keldon [Kelvedon, co. Essex] 6s. 8d., and to 
bis aieter 10s. One third part of his estate is to be divided between 
ids five children, viz., to Master Weston in the New College at 
[>xford £5, to Richard Weston £10, to Thomas and John Weston 
£20 each, and the residue to Mary Weston on her marriage. One 
>ther third part of his estate is given to Margaret, his wife, and 
ilso Us manor of Prested Hall in Essex in the parishes of Feering 
md Messing, for her Ufe, with remainder to his children. Executors: 
iiis said wife Margaret, Master William Weston, her eldest son^ and 
rhomas Weston, her son. (P. C. C, Fettiplace, 31.) 
Child, probably by first wife: 

i. Richard, of Prested Hall and Colchester, co. Essex, mentioned in 
his father's will, and said by Morant {op. cit.) to be the eldest 
son; d. in 1641; m. Eliza3Bth . Child: 1. John.* 

Children by second wife, living 20 Jime 1514: 
ii. WnjjAM. 

^Sobert W«ston, of Prested Hall, Baq., son and heir of this John, died 6 June 1601. He 

BStried Dorothy . who turvived him and married (2) Thomas Fuller, Gent. Robert 

RTcston left two daughters, coheirs, Anne, aged 9 srears and 3 months, and Mary, aged 6 ymxn 
lad 10 Tirr"*>^ Mary probably died young. Her sister Anne married Dean Tindall ol Qreat 
itfaiJMleeil oo. Essex. Esq., and the estate of Prested Hall was brought by this marriage into the 
rindsU family, and thenoe passed by sale into other hands. (Morant. op. eif.. voL 2, p. 171.)

' is probably correct.t He was bom in 1510, and died 6 July

daughter of Eustace of Watford, co. Northampton, Esq.; 
and thirdly, at Chicheley, co. Bucks, 7 July 1566, Elbabkib

Richard Weston was educated for the profession of law,

where he was reader in the autumn of 1554. He became emi- 
nent in his profession, and with the proceeds <rf his laeor 
iive practice purchased in 1554 the manor of Skroeiui in 
Roxwell, which became the family seat. On 10 Oct. 1655 he

second wife is not mentioned in his will, and therefore prob- 
ably died before 28 Dec. 1603, when the will was made. 

Sir Jerome Weston was high sheriff of Essex in 1599, and

1^ manor of Berwick Hall in White Colne, co. Essex. 

His Christian name is spelled in various ways, such as 
"Gerrom," "Hierome," "Jeromye,*' etc. Two of ms daughters 
had sons named Jeremy, viz., Ann Williams and Maiy Clarke, 
and Us daughter Elisabeth Cotton had a son named Jerome; 
and all three of these children were probably named for their

4. Robert Ratthebecke {ThomoB)^ of Homcastley co. 

draper, the testator of 9 Apr. 1571, probably bom at Horn- 
castle about 1542, died before his father, and was buried at 
Homcastle 11 Apr. 1571. He married, probably about 1561, 
Mabgabet Hutchinson, daughter of William and Dorothy 

( ) of Lincoln, and his wife's mother became later, 

after his death, the second wife of his father {fride tupra, 2). 
Margaret (Hutchinson) Raithebecke survived her husband 
and married secondly, at Homcastle, 14 July 1572, Francis 
Shaw. 

That Robert Raithebecke's wife was Margaret Hutchinson 
is evident from passages in several wills. In his own will 
{vide Registeb, vol. 72, page 56) Robert Raithebecke mentioDS 
Margaret, his wife, ''my brother and my sister Neale," and 
also ''John Neale, my brother-in-law;" and this will was made 
more than four years before Margery Neale's mother was 
married to the testator's father, so that the "brother*' and 
"sister" Neale mentioned were not the stepbrother and st^ 

sister of the testator. Dorothy ( ) (Hutchinson) (Hunter) 

Raithbeck, widow of Thomas Raithebecke (the father of 
Robert), in her will dated 31 Jan. 1591/2 and proved 5 Apr. 
1592 {vide Registeb, vol. 72, page 57), mentions Thomas 
Raithbecke, Ann Hammerton, and Frauncis Freestone, who 
were children of Robert Raithebecke and her own grand- 
children, if Robert's wife was her daughter; and she also men- 
tions, among others, her daughter "Margerye Neall/' Robert 
Raithbeck, "sone to James Raithbeck" (and thmfore her 
third husband's grandson), the children of Robert Freestone, 
who was the husband of Robert Raithebecke's daughter 
Frances, and her (the testatrix's) son [i. e., son-in-law] Jdim 
Neall. Robert Freestone and Thomas Hammarton were 
appointed supervisors of her will, and John Neale was one of 
the executors. John Neall, of Homcastle, tanner, the husband 
of Margery (Hutchinson) Neale, in his will dated 31 Aug. 1594 
and proved 11 Feb. 1594/5 {vide Registeb, vol. 51, page 121, 
or Waters's Genealogical Gleanings in England, voL 2, page 
1262), bequeathed to Robert Freestone, Thomas RaiUiebecke, 
and Thomas Hamerton, among others, and "to every of their 
wives." Margery (Hutchinson) Neale, of Homcastle, widow, 
sister of Margaret (Hutchinson) Raithebecke, in her mil dated 
10 July 1611 and proved 10 May 1613 (ib.), mentions among 
others Anne Hamerton, "my niece," and her son Nichdas,

Robert Freeston's son Robert and daughters Margery ('' my god 
daughter")) Anne, and Mary, and Thomas Rathbecke, '%y 
late nephew's son/' and his sister Margaret. It is to be noted 
that neither John Neall nor his widow Margery mentioned in 
their wills the children of James Raithebecke, Robert's brother, 
as tiiey would probably have done if the children of James had 
becm as nearly related to the testators as the children of Robert. 
Now Mar^u^t Hutchinson, daughter of William and Dorothy 
and sister of Margery (Hutchinson) Neale, was, according to 
her father's will, unmarried and imder twenty-one years of 
age on 4 Jan. 1556/7. She is not otherwise accotmted for, and 
was undoubtedly the Margaret who became the wife of Robert 
Rakhebecke, whose first child, according to the records tiius

INSCRIPTIONS IN THE TOWN CEMETERY 
AT THE VILLAGE OF BAKERSFIELD, VT. 

Copied and communicated by Herbert Williams Dknio, A.M., 

of New York City 

The town of Bakersfield is situated in the eastern part (tf FkenUi 
County, Vt., fifteen miles east from St. AlbiuiSy the shiie town. It 
is bounded on the north by the town of Enoaburg, on the east hgr ^ 
A very ^s Goro and the town of Waterville, on the south by tte toin| . 
of Fletcher, and on the west by the town of Fairfield. In Januiii : 
1791 a charter for 10,000 acres of land in what is now BakecafieB i 
was i^ucii by the State of Vermont to Luke Knowlton, who in tii0 1 
fcJlowing numth sold this grant to Joseph Baker fcur 500 poundl -^ 
lawful money. In 1792 the town of Sinithfieldy containiog 23,000 J 
acit^ which had been chartered by New Hainprftire in 1763,t in4 ^ 
dismembered by Vermont « and a part of it was jdned to Enowltoo^ #

om aoatlimn Vermont or Massachusetts. These all died and were 
mried in Bakersfield, and some of their descendants are still living 
i the town. Other early settlers were Thomas Barnes, f3kha 

Silas Hazeltine, Anoiory Parker, William Perkins, Ebeneaer 
Amos Town, Eben Barlow, Joseph Wilkinson, and Axariah 

Gravestones of members of all these families are in the to¥m 



In 1796 there were twenty freemen, legal voters, in the to¥m. 
I 1799 thirteen more voters had qualifieid. In 1800 forty new 
imiHeB moved into the town. The population to-day is about 1100. 
ke firat death in the town was that of Isaac Freeman Famsworth, 
1 1796; the second, that of BHisha P. Pratt, a boy of eleven years, 
I the same year. 

The land for the town cemetery was given by Joseph Baker, who 
bo gave the "Conmion" adjoining it on the west, near the south 
ad d the village. About 1865 the cemetery was extended by 
nrcfaase towards the east. By the will of Peter Bent Brigham, a 
alive of liie town, who in his youth had gone to Boston to seek 
it fortune and who died in 1877, the town received a gift of $10,000, 
be income of which is to be used in caring for the cemetery in which 
18 parents were biuied. This restriction, therefore, prevents the 
zpenditure of any of the income in caring for any other cemetery, 
irfore this time the cemetery had presented the usual appearance 
f a New England biuying ground; but, on the acceptance of this 
jift by the town, the task of improvement was begun. Weeds and 
ivergrown shrubbery were removed, most of the trees were cut 
bwn, the groimd was levelled, lot fences and footstones were taken 
.way, paths and driveways were gravelled, flowers and shrubs were 
ihnted, and trees were set out along the paths and fence. Later 
be old portion of the cemetery was extended southwards, and the 
O^way was properly located. The Common, which in the years 
mmediately preceding had been used chiefly for ball games and cir- 
Qses, was fenced in and planted with flowers by the town, and was 
fought into harmony with the cemetery. The cemetery is now 
id cared for, the grass is cut with hwd lawn mowers, and an 
ttractive appearance has been given to the whole enclosure. 
Of late years not a few French Canadians — for the cemetery is 
m to all residents of the town — have selected this place for the 
Nrial of members of their families, for they know that the grounds 
M always be cared for. In another part of the village there is a 
loman Catholic cemetery, opened about 1865, the care of which 
bvohres upon the owners of the individual lots. The town ceme- 
■y at East Bakersfield, the inscriptions in which were printed 
I the Reoibteb of July 1919 (vol. 73, pp. 186-188), has, perhaps, 
0t been used for interments for more than forty years.* Many 
vmer residents of the district known as ''Egypt," in the west part 



, rol. 73. p. 186. it wma stated that "the inscription of latest certain date" in the 
cemetery was that of Benjamin Upton, who died 1 Jan. 1877. It has been 
howev e r, that the date on the sr^vestone of Daphne C. wife of H. W. Dunham, of 
OB a aeo un t of the breakinff of the stone, only the word "June" was legible, was originally 
11« 1877," and therefore J>aphne C. Dunham was the last person to be buried in that 
for whom there is a grayestone.

npidmflB, shoukl stand by them, try to protect them from ^e effects of their 
own politieal inexperience, and, above all, help to avert from them the terrible 
of famine. The United States, havmg heli)ed to extinguish the oan-

REPORT OF THE COUNCIL 

Prepared by John Cabroll Chase 

This institution was seventy-five years old as an organization 
in 1019 and will celebrate its seventy-fifth anniversary as a cor- 
poration in 1920. It was three-quarters of a century ago, in October 
1844, that several gentlemen met at the home of Mr. William H. 
Montague, in Orange Street, Boston, to discuss the advisability 
of organizing a society for the purpose of awakening and stimulating 
interest in genealogical and heraldic studies. On Friday evening, 
1 November, following, Mr. Montague and his associates, Messrs. 
Charles Ewer, Samuel Gardner Drake, John Wingate Thornton, 
and Lemuel Shattuck, met at Mr. Shattuck's residence, 79 Harrison 
Avenue, and organized the New England Historic Genealogical 
Society, which was incorporated by a special act of the General 
Court, 18 March 1845. 

The seventy-fifth year of this institution has been, in many ways, 
one of the best in its whole history. 

During the two and a quarter centuries that elapsed between 
the Landing of the Pilgrims and the birth of the Society, very little 
interest was manifested in the objects which the Society was 
organized to promote. Measured by the genealogical publications 
issued in America, the total output up to 1^4 would not fill a three- 
foot shelf. Conditions changed with the advent of the new Society. 
Interest in 'its objects was soon aroused by its officers, its Ubrary, 
and its pubUcations, and this soon manifested itself in the publica- 
tion of genealogies and local histories with genealogical registers. 
The interest thus awakened steadily increased from year to year 
and brought with it, for the Society, serious problems of housing 
its library and financing its work. 

During the first twenty-five years of its existence the Society 
occupied rented quarters and depended on voluntary assistance to 
cany on its work. Then it purchased and remodelled a building 
which furnished accommodations for its growth for about forty 
years. The erection of the present commodious and safe building 
in 1912 solved the housing problem for many years to come. 

The practical cessation of the World War in November 1918 
again inade it feasible to appeal to the public for support, and a 
campaign to solve the financier problem was immediately begun. 
On 14 November Mr. George Lambert Gould, Treasurer of the 
Society, pledged $1000; and on 5 December Mr. James Melville 
Hunnewell, a CJouncillor of the Society, pledged $5000. These 
pledges have resulted in the creation of two new funds, the George 
Lambert Gould Fund and the Robert Cushman Hunnewell Me- 
morial Fund. In December 1918 a preliminary committee was 



XIV N. E. mSTOBIC GENEALOGICAL 80CIBTT 

appointed to consider ways and means, and at the January meeting 
of the Council, upon recommendation of that committee, a Speciiu 
Conmiittee on Endowment and Members was appointed, to serve 
through the two years 1919 and 1920. This committee was selected 
largely from the Committees on Ways and Means and on Increase 
of Membership, including the heads of both committees, and has 
been very active throughout the year. Its work for the year 1820 
is already imder way, and it is beUeved that the financial probl^n 
of the Society will be permanently settled, through its ^orts, by 
the end of the year 1920. 

The three-hundredth anniversary of the Landing of the Pilgrims 
occurs in 1920. The New England Historic Gen&Eilogicfd Society 
proposes that its chief observance of this important occasion shaD 
take the form of a substantial increase of its membership and its 
endowment funds. It is beUeved that there can be no more fitting 
or useful memorial to the Pilgrims than the continued maintenance 
of the work of this Society, and this will be assured by the Pilgrim 
Tercentenary Memorial Fund, now being raised by the Special 
Conm[iittee on Endowment and Members. 



The Report of the Committee on Finance, by George Lambert 
Gould, Treasurer: 

Early in 1919 the Society received from George W. MacWha, Esq., 
executor of the estate of Mrs. Jennie B. Fuller, its proportion of the 
residue of her estate, amounting to $1425.09, which, with receipts 
of dues from members, enabled the Society to pay to the Boston 
Safe Deposit & Trust Company the balance of the floating indebted- 
ness which was due and which was incurred at the completion of 
the Society's building seven years ago. 

During the year the Committee decided to pay off the mortgage 
on the front building on Ashburton Place, amounting to $23^000 
and interest, which also was held by the Boston Safe Deposit ft 
Trust Company. It was enabled to do this because of the success- 
ful efforts of the Special Committee on Endowment and Membeis 
in securing Pilgrim Tercentenary Members and also by the burgs 
increase in the number of Life Members. 

On 12 October the Society received the sum of $162.38, bong 
the interest for the second year on the legacy of $5,000 from the 
estate of Dr. Moses Greeley Parker, in the hands of the Boston 
Safe Deposit & Trust Company, Trustee. Members of the Com- 
mittee on Finance and of the Council were surprised and disappointed 
at the meagre return, especially as the same institution had charged 
the Society, on floating and mortgage indebtedness, 6% per annum 
until the amounts were paid, as stated above. 

The Society will probably receive during the coming year the 
sum of $4,000 from the estate of Albert Crane of Stamford, Conn., 



BEP0RT8 OF COIOOTTEBB XV 

be added to the Thomas Crane Fund, which was created several 
UB ago by Mr. Crane in memory of his father, Thomas Crane. 
le income of this legacy is to be applied ''first to the binding and 
Bservation of the pamphlets of the Society, and secondly to Hie 
neral purposes of the Society.'' The Society is also named in 
r. Crane's wiU, as one of the residuary l^atees, for a larger sum, 
^yable on the death of the principal beneficiary. 
Tbe Conmiittee reports, with much gratification, the receipt of 
nited States bonds and other donations from Society members 
id also the increased returns from membership dues, including 
tinly those from the new Pilgrim Tercentenary class, details of 
hidi will be given by other committees. 

While the amounts thus received are comparatively large, still 
ke needs of the Society are very large, and much more will be 
xjoired before the institution wiU be on a self-supporting basis. 
Hie net sums received have been closely and carefully invested 
{ accordance with votes of the Council, so that the net returns 
Q money invested will be very much larger proportionately than 
hat is received on securities bought years ago. 



be Report of the CoBiMiTTEE on Wats and Means, by William 
Streeter Richardson, Chairman: 

The Conmiittee takes pleasure in reporting that the recommenda- 
on referred to in its annual report for 1918 as to the adoption of 
ew methods has been vigorously followed, and that it has resulted 
I a material measure of success. 

Not only has the course pursued produced inmiediate substantial 
mSf but the work already done affords strong encouragement 
lat its continuance during the next year or two on the same lines 
in yield equally good results. It is true that the efforts of the 
bmmittee must not be in any way relaxed, but it seems that a 
irther improvement in the financial condition of the Society may 
e confidently expected. 

lie Report of the Committee on Incbease of Membership, by 
Mrs. Florence Reynolds Conant Howes, Chairman: 

Ab the field of work of the Committee on Increase of Member- 
iq> was effectively and comprehensively covered during the past 
ear by the Special Committee on Endowment and Members, no 
leeting of the Committee has been held. 



he Report of the Committee on Sale of Pubucations, by 
Chaa*les Ehot Goodspeed, Chairman: 

The miscellaneous pubUcations on hand for sale at the beginning 
' the year (exclusive of Registers, Vital Records, and special fund 
xjks) were valued at $3259.48, and the sales amounted to $379.05. 
returns and net revenue from this source are very satisfactory.

The Report of the CioiaaTTEE on Pubugations, by James Pari 
Pannenter, A.M., LKB., Chairman: 

The Committee on Publications reports that on 14 January 19] 
acting under authority conferred on it by the Coimcil on 6 Noveml 
1918, it voted that the title-pages and indexes of the Regibti 
hitherto printed in the October number of each year, should he] 
after appear with the January number of the foUowing year. A 
cordingly the title-pages and indexes for Volume 73 (1919) n 
be sent out as a supplement to the Registub for January 19! 
in such form that they can be boimd as usual with the quartet 
numbers of the volume to which they belong. 

Letters and circulars asking for subscriptions to enable the Socie 
to continue the publication of the Vital Records of Massachuset 
towns prior to 1850, which was suspended after the repeal of tl 
Vital Records Act of 1902 by the Massachusetts General Cou 
of 1918, were sent out by the Committee in the spring of 1919 i 
the public libraries of Massachusetts and to the lea^ng libraii 
and historical societies throughout the United States. Favorab 
responses have been received from many of these institutions, an 
the Coimcil has authorized the Committee on Publications 1 
proceed as soon as possible with the publication of the Vital Reoord 
of Plympton and of Nantucket. It is hoped that additional sol 
scriptions will enable the Society to publish other volumes an 
eventually to complete this important series of printed \^tal Record

The Report of the Committee on English Reseabch, by Qe(X| 
Andrews Moriarty, Jr., A.M., LL.B., Chairman: 

The Committeie on English Research reports that throu|^ tl 
courtesy of Hon. Frederick Samuel Fish, A.B., of South Bend, Lui 
it was enabled to communicate to the Register, for publication i 
the issue of January 1919, important records relating to the EDgJI 
connections of John Coggeshall, first president of the Colony < 
Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, and that Mr. Ami 
Rudulph Justice of Ardmore, Pa., has placed at the dignwal « 
the Committee, for publication in the Register in the eany pa 
of 1920, his proofs of the English ancestry and family connectioi 
of Jeremiah Clarke of Newport, R. I. Other material in tiie poflse 
sion of the Committee is being examined and prepared for public

be Report of the Committee on Hebaldbt, by Robert Dickson 
Weston, A.B., Chairman: 

Tlie Committee on Heraldry has little to report. During the 
ar ibe thoughts of men were concentrated on the conflict, to the 
dusion of less important subjects. The return to normal con- 
IJons, so far as an interest in heraldry is concerned, is slow. But 
ED8 of reviving interest are perceived, and the Committee antici- 
ites that for it the coming year will be one of much greater activity. 
A room, furnished with bookshelves, desks, and chairs, has been 
!ovided for the Conmiittee, on the street floor of the Society's 
aiding, and there selected works on heraldry, representations of 
latfl of arms, and the archives of the Committee have been placed. 



be Report of the CoMMriTEE on the Libbabt, by Mrs. Mary 
Btickney Randall, Secretary: 

The Committee on the Library has met regularly each month 
iroughout the year, with the exception of the sunmier months, 
r tJ^ transaction of such routine business as comes within its 
ludiction, and has also attended to special matters which have 
ien referred to the Conmiittee. 

During the seven years in which the Society has occupied the pres- 
it builcSng, only absofutely necessary repairs to the building have 
en made. The building now is greatly in need of having its walls, 
ilingB, and woodwork thoroughly cleaned and renovated. This 
ould be done before the seventy-fifth anniversary of the incor- 
»ration of the Society, which is to be celebrated in March 1920. 
The most pressing need of the Society at the present time is a 
mplete and comprehensive guide to genealogical data in print 

relation to American famiUes. It is now several years since the 
it issue of the Durrie-Munsell series of Indexes was published, 
d the later issues of these Indexes are very incomplete. Such a 
at amount of genealogical information has been published since 
ese Indexes were issu^ that it is extremely desirable and nec- 
niy that new and improved indexes be compiled which will make 
18 information available, and which will eliminate the waste of 
ne on the part of the searcher and unnecessary expense on the 
ill cS the Society in handling and consulting many books not useful 

each particular search. 

Some years ago the Librarian and his staff devised an index card, 
I which the amount of data, the period of time covered, and the 
ographical location of the families indexed are shown briefly, thus 
flUing the r^er to choose only such books as would be useful 
him. A sufficient beginning of the index was made at that time 

prove that the idea was practical, but important problems of 
usmg the Society's collection and financing its work made it 



XVm N. E. mSTOBIG GENEALOGICAL 80CIETT 

• 

necessary to suspend this indexing. The Committee reoonmiends that 
work on this index be resumed as soon as fimds can be obtained for 
it, and that plans be made for bringing and keeping it up to date. 

When the new building was erected in 1912, the fireproof vault 
was equipped with temporary wooden shelves, constructed from 
lumber brought from the old building, as it was thought inexpedient 
at that time to go to the expense of putting in metal stacks. These 
temporary wooden shelves have now been used for seven years aiKl 
are far from satisfactory. The Committee recommends that modem 
steel bookstacks be erected in the vault at an early date. 

Through fimds given and bequeathed by the late Albert Crane 
of Stamford, Conn., a substantial binding fund will eventually be 
created. Until the whole amoimt is available, however, more monej 
will be needed for binding. 

The Report of the Committee on EprrAPHS, by Myles Standish, 
A.M., M.D., S.D., Chairman: 

The Committee on Epitaphs held no meeting in the year 19191 
It notes, however, with satisfaction, that from time to time nev ' 
collections of inscriptions from New England burial grounds an 
sent to the Register for pubUcation, and that occasionally space 
is foimd in the Register for the printing of some of the typewritttt 
or manuscript collections in the possession of the Library. 



The Report of the Committee on Papers and Essays, by John 
McKinstry Merriam, A.M., Chairman: 

The Committee on Papers and Essays has provided eight lectmeei 
for the stated meetings of the year, as follows: 

e January.— '*ln the Wake of the War," by Fred E. Marble, Ph.D., of 
bridge, Mass. 

5 February, — "Liberty and Law," by Hon. Arthur Holbrook WeDmii^ 
M.A., LL.B., of Topsfield, Mass. 

6 March.— ''The Training of the Twenty-Sixth Division," by Capt. H. U, 
Connerais, U. S. A., of the One Hundred and First Infantry. 

S April. — '^Backgrounds of Present-Day Immigration," by George H^lfiMi 
Tupper, Ph.D., of Brookline, Mass. 

7 May, — "Aviation — its Progress and Prospect," by Albert Hatton QibiHrt 
A.M., of Medford. Mass. 

1 October, — "Ancestor Hunting in Engkind," by J. Gardner Bartlett ol Boilot

5 December, — "The Eugenics of Genealogy," by Walter Ebnore Femaldy MJXi 
of Waverley, Mass. 

Five of the lectures were illustrated with stereopticon slideB, and 
all were followed by refreshments. 

Many of the speakers gave their services without com] 
and several members of the Society contributed toward 
expenses; therefore the Committee has not been obliged, in ifA 
of the advance in prices, to use the full amount ($250) of the aiqpio*!! 
priation granted by the Coimcil. ] 



REP0BT8 OF COMMITTEES XIX 

le Beport of the Special Committee on Endot^ment and Mem- 
BKB8, by William Prescott Greenlaw, Chairman: 

nik Committee was appointed 2 January 1919 to serve throi^h 
d two years 1919 and 1920, for the purpose of conducting an active 
inpaign for money to pay off the Society's indebtedness, to obtain 
amboB, and to secure special endowment funds. Four of its 
ten members had served on a committee appointed 4 December 
il8 to consider wajrs and means of raising money for these purposes. 
Tlie earlier committee recommended that the dues of Resident 
Aiibers be increased from five to ten dollars; that the Life Member- 
i^ fee be increased from fifty to one himdred dollars; and that pro- 
■on be made as soon as possible, by an addition to the By-Laws 
the Society, for a new class of members, to consist of those persons 
bo pay three himdred dollars at one time into a special endow- 
enl fund to commemorate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the 
eorporation of the Society and the three-hundredth anniversary of 
le Landing of the Pilgrims, both of which occur in 1920, these 
tmbers to have aU the privileges of Life Members, together with 
m li^t of transmitting the membership in perpetuity by will or 
littan notice to the Society. 

At the annual meeting of the Society, 5 February 1919, the By- 
mrs were amended in accordance with the Conmiittee's recommen- 
itions. The members of this new class were designated Pilgrim 
eroentenary Members and limited to those who qualified before 
January 1921. 

The committee appointed in December began a canvass of the 
eflident Membership, inviting the members to change to Life 
Eembership, and this resulted in seeming about one thousand dollars 
iring the month. It also secured the promise of two donations, 
hieh materiaUzed later, and amounted to six thousand dollars, 
be Special Committee . completed this canvass for Life Members 

ntiie months of January and February, securing a little over 
ousand dollars more from this source. One hundred and 
iriy-five Resident Members were transferred to Life Membership 
the three months. The Treasurer's records show that the pay- 
ants of tiiese members in annual dues and Life Membership fees 
nmgjed almost ninety-five dollars each, an amount only five dollars 
m than the present Life Membership fee. 

The Special Committee, during the early part of the year, issued 
fanited number of engraved invitations seeking the creation of 
memorial endowment funds; and in two instances the chair- 
has been advised of wills having been executed by which the 
oety will eventually benefit. 

Tlie main work of the year, however, has been the canvass for 
Ignm Tercentenary Members. The Committee, with the co- 
pntion of several gentlemen of international reputation in various 
■10, has sent out engraved invitations to a number of persons 
^ it was believed, would be interested in the work of the Society 
i woald be wUling to contribute a Pilgrim Tercentenary Member- 
1p lee for the support of its work in the futiu^. The results of 



this part of the Comimttee's midertakiog have been very ftirfaftnry* 
Over three handred pefBons have accepted the invitatioo. 

Throo^ the endeav<»8 of this Committee a greater amoimt of 
money has been received by the Treasurer than in aiqr p ref vi o uB jof 
ol the Sodetjr's history, amounting to moie than one hmfedred tooi!* 
sand doDars; and the number cl members secured is moie tha 
double the record ot the best previous year. 

The Committee expects to continue this work and also to canvM 
for Life and Resident Members throug^iout the jrear 1920. It ii 
also planning to make appeals for money for qiedal parposes, to 
take care <rf preseing needs, such as additional equipment, iqpkeq^ 
cataloguing, and binding. 

The success so far achieved and the outlook for 1920 warrant the 
belief that the Society will be able to continue its liberal policjcf 
maintaining a free library, where all interested can sedc inf ormatiat 
about the Pilgrims, their neighbors of the Ammcan Ccdcmies, their 
successors of later immigrations, and thdr desc^idants. As ahnort 
the entire patriotic-society movement in this country is based iqNi 
the interest in family history awakened and stimulated by tUi 
Society during its seventy-five years of ezistenoe, the value d 
maintaining its work can scarcely be overestimated. 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN 

Presented by Wujjam Pksscott Greenlaw ' 

The total accessions for the year 1919 nimiber 794 vofaimeii 
473 pamphlets, and 49 miscellaneous articles. Of these, 265 vohDanB| 
and 100 pamphlets were purchased; 179 volumes, 371 pampbUtl 
and 49 miscellaneous articles were given; 55 volumes and 2 pUUk 
phlets were received in exchange; and 295 volumes were leutPll 
on deposit. Two hundred and three genealogies were aoquiNK 
during the year. ^ 

As predicted in the report of the Council last year, a rkiciidii 
increase in the use of the Library has taken place; the yiatUm 
Register for the year shows twenty-eight per cent more 
than in 1918, and the record of use by members and viaitoTB 
bined shows a twenty per cent increase. In 1920 it is 

that the Pilgrim Tercentenary will arouse considerable ini 

in family history and cause a greater demand for informatioil M 
the Library. ^ 

The Librarian has devoted the larger part of his time since Wt 
signing of the armistice in November 1918 to the task of Miimiiijl 
endowment funds to carry on the work of the Society in the ful— i l 
and this work will require a part of his services tbrou^ the ] 
1920. Because of this, it has been necessary to add another

his will establishing the Kidder Fund, has the following to say: "and 
* desire that said Snares in the said Cabot Manufacturing Company 
be sold imless there should be some urgent necessity for it, and then by 
' the Society with the approval of the Judge of Probate for the County 
k, and then the proceeds to be carefully re-invested under his direction

Prepared by Rxv. Lewis Wilder Hicks, M.A., Historian 



The following pages contain obituary notices of members who 
died during the year 1919, with the addition of four who died in

the deaths occurred.

since 1916, was bom at Manchester, N. H., 18 July 1860, the son 
of Nathaniel Cumner, and died at Brookline 18 May 1917. 

The family came to Boston when he was yoimg, and he became 
a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, but did 
not graduate there, preferring to enter upon a business career. 
He started with the Cumner-Jones Company, dealing in tailor 
trimmings, at 90 Chaimcy Street, Boston, a firm of which his father 
was the founder; and, when his father died, he succeeded to the 
presidency. The house maintained a Chicago branch, known as 
Cunmer, Jones &, Company, Inc., of which he became president and 
director. 

Mr. Ciunner was president of the Boylston National Bank, a 
trustee and member of the executive committee of the Home Sav- 
ings Bank, a director of the John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance 
CSompany, vice-president and director of the Thayer, McNeil Com- 
pany, and president and director of the Frank W. Greaves Com- 
pany of Minneapolis, Minn. He was a member of the Boston 
Chiunber of Commerce, and had been a vice-president and director 
of the old Merchants' Association before it was merged with the 
Chamber of Commerce. 

He was a member of the Boston Art Club, the Beacon Society, 
the Algonquin Club, the Exchange Club, the Brae-Bum Country 
Club, and the Boston Athletic Association. He was also connected 
wi^ the Masonic fraternity and held membership in many of its 
organizations. 

The promotion of the interests of his home town occupied much 
of his attention, and for some years he was chairman of the Brookline 
Gymnasium and Bath Commission and had served on the Play- 
ground Commission. He was deeply interested in Red Cross activi- 
ties and in relief work for war sufferers. 

He married Nellie Buckingham Pope, daughter of Edwin Pope

since 1899, was bom at Montpelier, Vt., 14 April 1858, the son of

books, among which were the following: ''Sketch of the life and 
Work of the Painter Domenico Mordli,'' Houghton, Mifflin ft [ 
Company, 1895; ''History of Modem Italian Art,'' LoDgmaniy ji

MSM0IB8 Xli 

Mrs. Josephine (Drew) Hills of Boston, a life member since 
1912, was bom in Boston 18 August 1840, the daughter of Joseph 
Lawrence and Amelia (Smith) I^w, and died there 29 November 
1918. On her father's side she was descended from Elder \^/llliam 
Brewster and John Alden of the Mayflower. Her mother was 
bom in England, the daughter of Henry and Jane (Morgan) Smith. 

Mrs. Hills's life was uneventful. Her charities, which were many, 
were bestowed quietly and imostentatiously. She had a special 
interest in the New England Historic Genealogical Society, largely 
on account of her husband's deep interest in all that pertained to 
genealogy, and she was a contributor to its building fimd in 1912. 
She was a member also of the Society of Daughters of the Revolu- 
tion, by reason of her descent from Sergeant Job Drew. 

ibe married, 6 September 1877, as his second wife, Thomas Hills 
of Boston, whose first wife had been her sister, Amelia Ellen Drew. 
BCr. Hills, who died 19 September 1910, aged eighty-two years, had 
beoi a life member of the New EIngland Historic Genealogical 
Society' since 1897, and was the editor of ''The Hills Family in 
America," published in 1906, a book that was largely the result of 
the labors of the late William Sanford Hills of B^ton. A memoir 
of TlK>mas Hills may be found in the Register, vol. 65, page bd. 

1919 

Franklin Pierce Rice of Worcester, Mass., a life member 
since 1903, was bom at Marlborough, Mass., 29 July 1852, the son 
of Minot and Mary Berry (Felton) Rice, and di^ at Worcester 
3 January 1919. He was a descendant of Edmund^ Rice of Sud- 
biuy, Mass., through Joseph,' Caleb,' Jabez,^ Jabez,^ Abel,* and 
Minot,^ his father. Among his ancestors in other lines were Rev. 
Samud Skelton, the first minister at Salem, Mass., and Nathaniel 
Fdton of Salem. 

He. received his elementary education from his mother, and did 
not enter a public school until he was eleven years old. Even after 
that time his attendance at public schools was not umntemipted. 
When a young man he intended to enter the medical profession, and 
began the study of chemistry, anatomy, and ph3rsiology; but ad- 
verse circumstances prevented the realization of this plan, and he 
turned his attention to writing historical and biographical sketches 
and to editing, printing, and publishing the records of Massachusetts 
towns, especially those in Worcester County. 

In 1871 he had purchased a small printing press, which he ex- 
changed within a few months for a better one. A few years later, 
in 1880, he bought a Columbia, press, and used it for more than 
thirty years. As a printer he was self-educated, and did not learn 
the trade by working for any regular printer. By himself and on 
his own pi^ he began the task of preserving in print the vital rec- 
ords of Worcester County towns. 

Many records were printed by Mr. Rice on his own press. Many 
others, including the Worcester town records, which he edited, were 
published by the Worcester Society of Antiquity, of which he was 



Xlii N. E. mSTOBIC QENEALOOICAL SOGISTT 

one of the four founders. But his greatest service as a publishei 
of vital records was rendered under the provisions of the Vital 
Records Act approved by the Governor of Massachusetts in 1902, 
in accordance with which the Commonwealth undertook to pur- 
chase, at a fixed rate per page, five hundied copies of ibe printed 
vital records of each Massachusetts town prior to 1850, provided 
that the books were compiled and published in the manner required 
by certain State officials and that not more than $15,000 was spent 
for this purpose in any one year. The New Eln^and Historic Gcaiea- 
logical Society, to whose representations the passage of the Vital 
Records Act of 1902 was chiefly due, entered the field inmiediatdy as a 
publisher of vital records, and Mr. Rice, as trustee of the Systeniatie 
History Fund, together with the Essex Institute, the Topsfield Histori- 
cal Society, and, later, Mr. Thomas W. Baldwin, joined in the woA. 
From 1902 imtil the repeal of the Act in 1918, a period of more thtn 
sixteen years, 169 different volumes, containing the vital recoids 
prior to 1850 of 149 Massachusetts towns and a part oi the vital 
records of two other towns, were delivered to the Secretary (rf the 
Ck)mmonwealth and distributed by him without charge to the pvi£c 
offices, Ubraries, and historical societies entitled under the provisioDS 
of the Act to receive them. Mr. Rice's part in this important work 
consisted in compiling and publishing the vital records of more than 
thirty towns in Worcester CJounty, the last volumes contributed by 
him to this series of vital records appearing in 1911. Besides his 
painstaking work in compiling and publishing town records Mr. 
Rice was a contributor on his favorite antiquarian themes to news- 
papers and encyclopsedias, and was the author also of ''Reminiscenoes 
of Rev. George Allen," "Life of Eli Thayer," and other works. 

In addition to his connection with the Systematic History Fond 
and with the Worcester Society of Antiquity, Mr. Rice was a nwm- 
ber of the American Antiquarian Society, the Colonial Society of 
Massachusetts, the Worcester Natural History Society, of which 
he was a director from 1894 to 1909, and the Bunker HiU Monu- 
ment Association, and was a corresponding member of several other 
historical societies. 

Mr. Rice never married. His home Ufe was centred around his 
mother. At the annual meeting of the Colonial Society of Massa- 
chusetts, in 1919, the following tribute was paid to his memory: 

'Tranklin Pierce Rice, an enthusiast by nature in the local histoiy apd 
antiquities of his surroundings, whose timely solicitude and peraomd in-

piled by J. Gardner Bartlett and published recently by the Stone 
Family Association the ancestral line in En|^d of Dea. Gregory 
Stone has been proved for several generations. Mr. Stcme was

down through the Civil War. While on his business trips he oftn 
devoted leisure time to collecting family records, and he made es- 
tensive investigations which showed that the blood of Dea. Gregoiy

0oon appointed him to be printer on his flagship, the first appoint- 
ment of the kind, which was followed, however, by many other 
appointments of a like nature. The Minnesota was one of the ships 
attacked by the Merrimac in Hampton Roads in March 1862, and 
was saved by the timely arrival of the Monitor. Mr. Newhall served

REGISTER 



JULY, 1920 



MAJ. HENRY LEE HIGGINSON, A.M., LL.D. 
By Thornton Kirki«and Lothrop, Jr., A.B., of Boston, Mass. 

Ienbt Lee Higginson, although he held no public office, has 
many years been referred to as the first citizen of Boston. In 
deaUi, 14 November 1919, the community suffered a great 
, as well as Harvard University and the Boston Symphony 
hestra and all the other thin^ in which he was interested. The 
? England Historic Genealogical Society was very fortimate in 
lining him as one of the early members of the Pilgrim Tercen- 
tfy movement, which began last year and is still going on, and 
in getting his firm, Lee, Higginson & Company, to act as deposi- 
' for the fund thus raised. It especially mourns his loss, before 
membership was completed and just before the year which 
memorates the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, three 
dred years ago, had begun.* 

[ajor Higginson was a man of action rather than of words, and 
, quite as much as the ever present scar received in action during 
Civil War, was the reason why he was so constantly referred to 
bis militaiy title, which he gained through service in the Vol- 
)er Army of the United States during that momentous conflict. 
Ithough I have referred to him as a man of action, I must not be 
mderstood as meaning that he was a man of action only. He 
a great intellect and a large heart as well as a powerful memory, 
iiras noticeable for having ideals and cherishing them, and bringing 
a with his ripening years to a full fruition. He could see ahead 
rly, plan in great detail, and had a fortimate use of words to 
ain both what he thought of value in the past and what he had 
med for the future. 

e was bom in New York City 18 November 1834, the son of 
rge and Mary Cabot (Lee) Higginson. His parents were, how- 
, of New England stock, and shortly after his birth they returned 
k)eton, where he was brought up, and where he spent most of 
ife. Besides the Higginsons he was descended from the Jack- 
, Lees, Cabots, and other prominent families. It would be going

164 Henry Lee Higginson [July 

beyond the scope of this article to go into a detailed examination of 
the characteristics of these various families and determine how much 
each affected Major Higginson's thoughts and actions at the vari- 
ous phases of his career. Suffice it to say that, just as the many 
intermarriages of the Cabots, for instance, with the Sewalls, and 
Lowells, and Eliots, and other families, have had an effect on. various 
members and branches of the Cabot family and fitted them more 
for judicial, legislative, and administrative service, whilst at the 
same time they continued to retain their pronounced Cabotic char- 
acteristics of easy excellence in whatever they did and constant 
ability to keep on doing something all the time, so the Higginsons 
have shown all along the pronounced characteristics of having ideas 
and thoughts of their own, ability to express them well, courage 
to do so publicly under all circumstances, and a certain strei^gth of 
purpose to cling to them imtil they were fulfilled. These character- 
istics Major Higginson had to a marked degree, and they were un- 
doubtedly helped, both in the directions they took and in the suc- 
cess he o*btained in carr3dng them out, by the characters of the 
other New England f amiUes from whom he was descended and with 
whom he largely associated. 

Major Higginson was descended from Rev. Francis Higginsoii, 
who was bom in England in 1588 and graduated at Cambridge 
University. He had ideas of his own and therefore was obliged to 
leave England, and he arrived in New England on the TcSboi in 
1629. He settled in Salem, and died there in August of the follow- 
ing year, 1630. His son John was bom in Ehigland in 1616, and came 
over with his father. He was more or less in other parts of New 
England, but spent most of his life in Salem, where he died 9 De- 
cember 1708. The family continued largely in Salem during the 
Colonial period. Stephen Higginson was bom there 28 November 
1743, but later moved to Boston, and died in Boston 22 November 
1828. One grandson of his was Thomas Wentworth Higginson, 
noted for his opposition to the extension and continuation^siavefy 
in the United States, which he "was able to help, in aboUshing by 
active military service in the Federal Army during the Civil War, 
and noted afterwards as an historian. 

Another grandson of this Stephen Higginson was Geoiige Kg- 
ginson, who married Mary Cabot Lee and moved to New Yofk, 
where Henry Lee Higginson was bom. His older brother was named 
George after his father, and his two younger brothers were named 
James Jackson and Francis Lee. His only sister was Mary, who 
married Mr. S. Parkman Blake. George, the father, shortly re- 
turned to Boston, where Henry Lee Higginson was brought up, 
attended the Boston Latin School, and entered Harvard College in 
1851. He only stayed at Harvard a scant year, as trouble wim his 
eyes made it impossible to continue there longer; but during that 
year, as well as during the previous years at the Latin School, be 
formed many friendships which, lasted through the rest of his life 
and affected it to a certain degree. It was here that he showed 
athletic prowess on the football field, in those days more Uke the 
Bloody Monday rush of later years than the organized game xiow 



1020] Henry Lee Htgginsan 165 

called football. Athletic ability and muscular strength were always 
^th him, although hampered of course by the severe wounds which 
lie suffered in the Civil War. In later years he was, like Gladstone, 
veiy fond of taking his exercise in cutting down trees, and near 
his eightieth birthday I have known him to go to New Haven in 
a day coach and walk to the Yale football field, and return the 
same way. 

After leaving Harvard College Mr. Higginson took a short trip 
abroad, and when he returned continued his education in a duller 
way, by filling a place at Samuel and Edward Austin's counting- 
house. Here he stayed a year and a half or a little more, and tlien 
went abroad once more with several of his best friends. They re- 
tailed, but he stayed on the other side to study music. This, the 
matefft pleasure of his life, he pursued for three years, mostly in 
Vienna, and with some of the most famous teachers; but his eyes 

Eve out again, this time more seriously, and in November 1860 
I returned to Boston. He stated then that he would be glad to 
live in Boston, if he could only find something to doj and very 
ah(^y there was plenty for him to do. In March 1861 Abraham 
lincom was inaugurated as President of the United States, and in 
i4>ril Fort Sumter was fired on and the Civil War had begun. 

Full of enthusiasm and animated with a strong sense of duty 
both to his country and to the antislavery cause, Mr. EUgginson 
was among the first to volunteer. He helped Col. (then Capt.) James 
Savage recruit Co. D, in the Second Regiment of Massachusetts 
Volunteers, and on 21 May 1861 was conmiissioned second lieu- 
tenant and on 8 July first lieutenant with the same company. The 
legiment after a while was sent to the front, reporting to General 
Patterson at Martinsburg, Va. He did not stay with it long, how- 
eveTi but was sent North for more recruiting and driUing, although 
in a slightly different line. About 1 November 1861 he was com- 
miSBioned captain in the First Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer 
CSavalry. It was first stationed at Readville, Mass., but later was 
lent to Maryland, South Carolina, and then Virginia, remaining 
ill the while with the Army of the Potomac. On 28 March 1862 
lie was commissioned major and given active charge of a battalion 
in this regiment. On 17 June 1863, at the Battle of Aldie, in Vir- 
ginia, he was severely wounded in three or more places. The effects 
of these woimds he bore through life, and it is wonderful how much 
he accomplished in despite of them. For a detailed account of the 
action as affecting Major Higginson I refer the reader to Mr. J. T. 
Morse, Jr's., adnurable article in The Harvard GradiuUea* Magazine 
for March 1920. 

Item Aldie Major Higginson was sent to stations and hospitals 
until he finally reached Washington and then Boston. Recovery 
was very slow, but it had its advantages, as it was then that he 
married Miss Ida Agassiz. She was a daughter of Professor Louis 
Agaagjg and a sister of Mrs. Quincy A. Shaw and of Alexander Agassiz. 
She was a constant help and encouragement to him throu^ life, 
and gave him an additional group of relatives and friends, who in- 
creased his already wide horizon. Despite this he was itching to get 



166 Henry Lee Higginson [July 

back to the army, and in July 1864 he obtamed a new position as 
aide on General Barlow's stafif. The work was too severe for|thim, 
however, and he then tried to get emplojrment in the Reserve Corps. 
Failing in this, he was honorably discharged in September 1864. 

In January 1865 Major Higginson started in civil life once more. 
After experimenting with the agency of an oil company in Ohio 
and, with his friend and companion soldier. Col. Charles F. Morse, 
and others, in the sea-island cotton business in Georgia, he found a 
place waiting for him at home with Lee, Higginson & Company, 
where he stayed the rest of his life. They already had a good busi- 
ness, and it grew rapidly after he became a partner. Copper mines, 
western railroads, and other industries of this growing coimtry, 
in which he and his relatives had interests, blossomed marvellously 
as the result of their practical energy, and the business of the firm 
grew with them. 

Soon Major Higginson decided that he could well devote his 
time and money to something else besides his business, and in 1881 
he started the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This put the best 
music before the music lovers of Greater Boston for more than half 
the year, and let the inhabitants of many other cities know some ci 
the advantages of Uving here. He paid all the losses, calculated 
at nine hundred thousand dollars by 1912 and at about a miUion 
and a quarter dollars in all. He imdoubtedly paid many oUmbt 
things which never got on the books at all. He also gave mudi 
time and thought to the orchestra, and made no end of trips to 
Europe to get the best conductors and musicians. His control and 
influence over the men were remarkable, and he never aUowed 
them to join any musicians' imion or other organization of that kind 
which might prevent the emplo3rment of the best talent available. 
When the United States entered the World War the conductor wss 
arrested as a spy and imprisoned for the rest of the War, and this 
was a very sad blow to Major Higginson. 

His connection with Harvard College was the only other thing 
as strong as his love for his orchestra. His only degree there wtf 
the honorary degree of Master of Arts in 1882, although he reodved 
the degree of Doctor of Laws from Yale in 1001 and from IT^^lliaini 
in 1912. But he served as a member of the Corporation of Harvard 
College for twentynsix years, from the time of his appointmoii 
in 1893 until the day of his death. President Mot has stated that 
during all those years he was noted for the ''utmost punctuaUty, 
assiduity, devotion, and high intelligence," and President Lowril 
has confirmed this opinion. He was recognized the world over among 
Harvard men for two great gifts to the University, Soldiers Field 
in 1890 and the Harvard Union in 1899. To these might be added a 
third, not thought of so much, perhaps, but almost equally appreci- 
ated, the playing of the S3rmphony Orchestra, ever since its founda- 
tion, in Sanders Theatre. 

Henry Lee Higginson is gone, and as a patriot, soldier, dtiieii, 
and Harvard man there is no one at present to take his place.

GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH IN ENGLAND 

[Continued from page 146] 

Gifpord-Sargent 

Contributed by G. Andrews Moriarty, Jr., A.M., LL.B., of Newport, R. I., 
and communicated by the Committee on English Researcn 

It is not often that the Committee on English Research is able 
to present an ancestral line of a New England immigrant that 
reaches back into the early Middle Ages, and consequently it is 
with great pleasm-e that it communicates to the Register records 
proving the descent of Margaret Giflford, wife of Hugh Sargent 
of Courteenhall, co. Northampton, and grandmother of William 
Sargent, one of the early settlers of Maiden, Mass., from John 
Gi£ford le Boef of Twyford, co. Bucks, in 1277. The records will 
be followed by a pedigree, in which the facts derived from them 
and from various authorities will be set forth in the usual genealogi- 
cal form. 

From iKQuisrnoKS Ad Quod Damnum and Inquishions Post Mortem* 

Inquisition taken at Hertaye [?] by Faversham, co. Kent, 29 December, 
34 Edward HI [1360]. The jurors say th^rt it is not to the damage or prejudice 
of the King or others if the King grants to John Giffard permission to 
enfeoff Rol^rt, parson of Somerton church, and Richard Mallet, chaplain, 
with 5 marks rent in Leisdon, they to grant the same to Thomas, son of 
the said John, and Elizabeth de Musenden, and their issue, with remainder 
m default to the right heirs of John. The said rent is held of the King in 
chief by knight service, as parcel of the barony of Arsyk. No other lands, 
etc., remain to the said John in this county. 

Inouisition taken at Ixning, co. Suffolk, 20 December, 34 Edward III 
[1360]. It is likewise not to the prejudice, etc., if John Giffard, Chivaler, 
assign the manor of Ixning to the said feoffees to grant to the said Thomas 
and Elizabeth and their issue, etc., as above. John has no other lands, 
etc., in this county. 

Inquisition taken at Oxford, 23 December, 34 Edward III [1360]. It 
is likewise not to the prejudice, etc., if John Giffard assign to the same 
feoffees his manors of Somerton and Feringford, co. Oxon, with 30s. rent 
in Cogges, co. Oxon, to grant the same manors to the said John and Lucy 
his wife, for the term of their lives, with remainder to their son Thomas 
and his issue, and, in default, to the right heirs of John, and the rent to 
Thomas and Elizabeth de Mussendon and their issue, which otherwise ought 
to revert to John, eldest son of the said John, by which the King ought to 
have the relief as it falls due. John has no other lands, etc., in the said 

county. (Inquisitions Ad Quod Damnum, Chancery Series, file 336, no. 18.) 

• 

Inquisition taken at Dadyn^ton, co. Oxford, 4 January, 41 Edward III 
[1367/8]. The jurors say it will not be to the damage or prejudice of the 
King if he grants to John Giffard permission to enfeoff Thomas Giffard 
and Margery his wife with 2 carucates of land in Feryngford and the moiety 
of the manor of Feringford and the advowson of that church, held of the 
King in chief, to hold to the said Thomas and Margery ana their heirs. 

'Presenred in the Public Record Office, London. 



232 OenealogiccH Research in England [July 

The said premises are held of the King in chief by the twelfth part of a 
knight's fee. The said John, beyond the premises so assigned, holds the 
moiety of the manor of Somerton and the advowson of that church of the 
King in chief, and the same are worth 22 marks a year. (76., file 362, no. 4.) 

Inquisition taken at Banbury [co. Oxon] 11 March, 43 Edward III [1368/9]. 
The jurors say that John Giffard, the day he died, held nothing c^ the 
King in chief, but held the manor of Somerton and the advowson of the

and EUen in 1635, each aged thirty-two years, and settled

244 Samud Abbott Green [Oct 

and died at Monistown, N. J., at the home of his daughter, 6 June 
1875. In Groton, on 16 March 1830, Samuel Abbott* Green, fourth 
son of Dr. Joshua and Eliza (Lawrence), was bom. 

His early boyhood was passed in his native town, for which he 
retained until his death a most devoted affection, showing con- 
stantly in a multitude of ways his love for the little New "Rnel^M* 
hill town where he was accustomed to spend his sununers. He 
became its faithful historian and a muniiScent benefactor of its 
institutions. He was prepared for college at the Lawrence Acadeoqr 
in Groton, entered Harvard in 1847, was graduated there with the 
Class of 1851, and received the degrees of Master of Arts and Doc- 
tor of Medicine from the same institution in 1854. He condnued 
his professional studies in Paris, and, after spending four yean 
abroad, began the practice of medicine in Boston. 

Already in May 1858 Dr. Green had become surgeon in the Sec- 
ond Regiment of the Massachusetts Militia, and at the commence- 
ment of the Civil War he was one of the first to offer his serviceem 
behalf of his country. On 25 May 1861 he was conmiissioDed ic- 
sistant surgeon of the First Massachusetts Volunteers. Lot Sq>teoi- 
ber of that year he was promoted to be siu*geon of the TmntT" 
fourth Massachusetts Volunteers, and at intervals, up to Noveni- 
ber 1864, he served on the staffs of Generals Stevenson, Feeler, 
Hawley, Terry, and Eautz. At the time of the Bumside expeditkm 
against Roanoke Island he was in charge of the hospital diip BecnA, 
in the spring of 1863 he had charge of the hospitsJi steamer Ccmt 
politarif on the coast of South Carolina, and during the siege of Fort 
Wagner he was chief medical officer at Morris Idand. In Octote 
1863 he was sent to Florida, and for six months was post suigeonit 
St. Augustine and Jacksonville. Later he was with Gen^ul Butfar 
at Bermuda Hundred. He was brevetted lieutenant colonel of Vol* 
unteers for gallant and distinguished services in the field during tha 
campaign of 1864. From April to July 1865 he was acting stif 
surgeon at Richmond, Va., and on 8 July 1865 he resigned frun the 
service. 

Upon the close of the War he returned to Boston and engaged oooi 
more in the practice of his profession, but public life had a gnit 
attraction for him and he gave prodigally of his time and eneiBriB 
behalf of the public welfare. For seven years he was superintcBd- 
ent of the Boston Dispensary and for nine years a member of the Boi' 
ton School Conunittee. From 1868 to 1878 he was a trustee of tti 
Boston Public Library, and served for one year as acting libnuaia 
From 1871 to 1881 he was city physician, and in 1882 Us ^iIcimImI 
public spitit and ability were rewarded by his fellow dtisenfli iHmi 
chose bim mayor of Boston, at a time when such office was a oo^ 
eted honor.* From 1869 to 1880, and again from 1882 to 1900, hi 
was an overseer of Harvard University. He also served on At 
State Board of Health, Lunacy, and Charity. In 1896 the UIlive^ 
sity of Nashville conferred on him the honorary d^;ree of Doctor of 
Laws. 

Dr. Green never married. As a physician he was unwearied in bii 
labor and in his devotion to his noble profession, and his heea k>Te

' buman nature and his sympathy for all mankind brought him 
oaety into touch with all sorts and conditions of people, who deeply 
terested him. With his broad sympathies and democratic tastes 
I came to know all kinds of people, and his love for them was re- 
vded by their love for him. Indeed, the most characteristic 
bm about Dr. Green were his wide sympathies, his broad vision, 
id nis great fund of true kindness, which, although often hidden 
ider a gruffness of manner, any reader of character could not fail 
popeive and love. It was this himian quality, this interest in all 
mkind, its struggles and aspirations, which made him truly acf- 
ired and beloved by all who understood him. 
Perhaps the most outstanding feature of his life was his love of 
rly New England history and especially of his native town of Grot- 
, the Ck)lonial history of which was enriched by numerous histor- 
i monographs from his pen, compiled with that painstaking accu- 
7* that denoted a labor of love. He was librarian of the Massa- 
UMtts Historical Society from 1868 until his death, and his later 
Bra were given exclusively to his work there. During these years 
was the principal figure at the Society's rooms, where he ruled 
a beneficent despot, and his picturesque and kindly personality 
rmeated the entire atmosphere of that institution. 
Idy personal acquaintance with Dr. Green dated from the last years 
his me, when, aiter I had returned from a protracted stay abroad, 
r common interest in historical and genealogical matters drew us 
gjether. I discovered that in his youth Dr. Green had studied 
der my grandfather, the late Dr. John Moseley Moriarty, then 
it physician of Boston, and kindly recollections of my grand- 
bher served me in good stead in winning my way into his good 
loes. I shall never forget going to call upon him at the building 
the Massachusetts Historical Society one day in the early spring 
d finding him enthroned in state in his library. The Doctor's 
esight was somewhat impaired and he did not know me; conse- 
lently my reception was somewhat gruff and a little forbidding. 
len Suddenly he knew me. I shall never forget the change that 
seed over his face. It was like passing from an impending storm 
to full simshine. ''Come right here and sit down," he cried, and 
esently he had his whole staff running about to imearth his vari- 
B monographs upon Groton, all of which he presented to me with 
I autograph, and we passed the entire afternoon delightfully dis- 
BBing the early Colonial days. This little incident, I have always 
tf was typical of his character — ^the external gruffness towards 
Bngers, the keen hmnan sympathy imdemeath, and the quick 
iponse to one who understood him. He is gone; and I always 
e to remember him as he was that afternoon, ruling over his Ubrary 
th a firm but kindly hand, and with a heart glowing with fine 
inanities and vital hiunan interest.
