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

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public 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 marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated 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 from 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 attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

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

By Edward Hbnst Clbmbnt, A.M., Litt.D., of Cambridge, Mats. 

Charles Edwin Hubd, the late literary editor of the Boston 
Transcript^ became a member of the New England Historic Gene- 
alogical Society in 1895, and at once his accomplishments in lan- 
guages and history made him a distinguished and valuable member. 
His natural tastes had led him, in his maturity, to the study of the 
Scandinavian tongues and literature, and he did not rest until he 
had acquired an actual and practical command of the Swedish and 
Norwegian languages. He was the personal friend of the great 
Norwegian litterateur and statesman, Bjomstjeme Bj5mson, and a 
translator of and commentator upon the plays of Ibsen. The 
threads of our New England descent extend back to the common 
aoarces of all the Northern peoples of Europe. There is a kinship 
of spirit in their free, representative political ideas and institutions. 
It was always a fascinating diversion for him to trace these lines in 
history and literature, as a collateral interest with his genealogical 
avocation. He will be missed among contributors, for such scholar- 
ship is all too rare among American genealogists. 

A^ir. Hurd was bom in Croydon, N. H., June 15, 1833. His 
father, a farmer of long descent in that region, traced back to Sec- 
retary Kawson of the Colonial government. Young Hurd was en- 
abled to supplement the common school education with a term at 
Hempstead Academy. In his youth, thereafter, he went through 
the usual experience of those who had enjoyed such advantages, of 
teaching, in his turn, in the district school. Then at twenty he 
came to Boston and found congenial employment on the city and 
suburban newspapers. Thus were laid the foundations for his sub- 
sequent development and career as litterateur. 

But Hurd had also a strong predilection, and no small gift, for 
art in all its phases, especially for painting and the drama. He be- 
came so much of a devotee of the theatre that at one time he had 
serious thoughts of going upon the stage, and only abandoned this 
purpose after an actual experience in small parts in one of the Bos- 
ton stock-companies. Then he was determined to be an artist. 
He took a course of lessons with a Boston painter and soon set up a 
studio for himself in the old Studio Building, at that time new,

without, however, losing hie hold on journalism. This combination 
of talents stood him in good stead during the Civil War, making 
him invaluable, with his double faculty, as a war correspondent. It 
also led to that unique experience, which he made the most of both 
with pen and pencil, in the short-lived invasion of Canada, in 
the summer of 1870, by the Fenians' Falstaffian army from across 
the Vermont border near St. Albans. He was accompanying his 
friend John Boyle O'Reilly, the Irish poet and editor of the Pilot, 
when the command of the Fenian army devolved on O'Reilly, though 
he was present only as correspondent of his paper, after the prompt 
arrest of its ** general " by the United States marshal. Hurd repre- 
sented Frank Leslie^s Illustrated Newspaper in the raid, and his 
pictures and text remain the classic chronicle of that extraordinary 
episode, giving to the full its comic, as well as its tragic, elements. 
From 1870 to 1875 Hurd was settling down more determinedly to 
his profession of journalism and letters. Stepping onward from the 
editorship of a New York " up-State " paper, the Erie Dispatch, 
to an editorial position in Providence and engagements on the Bos- 
ton Journal and the Boston Globe, he reached, in 1875, the liter- 
ary chair of the Boston Transcript. That great position he held 
with growing honor, success, and usefulness for the rest of his 
active life in service of the public. For he administered his trust 
always under a strong conscientious sense of its public relations and 
responsibilities. He conducted it as though it had its part to play 
in the discovery and greeting and nurturing of all coming-on talent. 
His associates can testify to his self-effacing, self-sacrificing devotion, 
and not merely to the ^arduous duty of his post, but also to the 
highest interests of the community in the faithful holding up of the 
standards of taste and culture in the then undisputed literary centre 
of America. He gave only too lavishly of his time and toil in study- 
ing the work of others, whether in books or manuscripts, lest he 
might do less than justice to any aspiring endeavor brought to his no- 
tice. He would not have it on his conscience possibly to discourage 
a struggling candidate for the public attention at a critical moment — 
one who might prove a valuable addition to the literary guild. He 
would day after day patiently listen to, and counsel with, such as- 
pirants till the working-hours were past, and he must in consequence 
sit at his desk through half the night to finish his own required work. 
In 1901, while toiling at night at his accumulated tasks alone in 
the office, a large and heavy dictionary slipped from his hands, and, 
falling upon his foot, inflicted such injuries that, after months of 
terrible suffering endured, gangrene set in. First his toes were 
amputated ; then he lost his foot ; and many dragging months afler, 
the whole leg. His retirement was thus enforced, but still he was 
prized and retained in the service and pay of his generous and sympa- 
thetic employer, the Transcript. Besides, he wrote for the maga- 
zines and assisted in the compilation of books for other publishers, 
happily occupied and doing valuable service to the end. 

1911] James Brown of Middletown^ Conn. 5 

His loyalty to Boston was such that, although he was most com- 
fortably provided for and delightfully situated in Brooklyn, N. Y., 
he insist^ on removing with his household gods to Boston just to 
spend amid the old scenes the last years of his life. It proved to be 
only months, but he was serenely happy all the while ; and the end 
came without any shock or struggle. It was simply a natural and 
beautiful sinking peacefully into a well-earned rest. 

The simplest of services was read over his body by his old friend 
Rev. E. A. Horton. By his express request no other words were 
said ; and from his new home in Allston the remains were taken to 
Lempster, N. H., for burial. Mr. Hurd is survived by his widow, 
who is a native of Nova Scotia, one daughter, Mrs. Morrill W. 
Craines (Grace Marguerite Hurd) of Brooklyn, N. Y., and three 
sons, Charles W., William J., and Reginald Hurd. 


By Edwin A. Hill, Ph.D., of Washington, D. C. 

The Register (vol. 62, p. 334) contains a very brief and incomplete 
accoont of the descendants of James^ Brown of Middle town, and while 
his male descendants were not numerous, the female lines of descent are 
quite the reverse. 

Many years since the writer and his father traced the descendants of 
Hugh* (James^), and from this material and from data furnished by Mrs. 
Fowler (No. 23, v) the following more complete account of the family has 
been prepared. 

It is stated in the Register (vol. 15, p. 162) that James^ Brown " was 
a Scotchman from Edinburg and a merchant" Various stories have come 
down through different lines, and New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, 
respectively, are given as his place of landing. The most reliable infor- 
mation, obtained from his granddaughter, Mrs. Sarah (Brown) Griffing, is 
that he came early in life to New York, and had to work for the sUp's 
owners, after his arrival, to pay for his passage. 

The first authentic record that we have of him is from the town records 
of Guilford, Conn., where on 26 Sept. 1716 he purchased a residence of 
Abram Bradley. In the deed he is described as " James Brown dealer 
now resident" On 6 Dec. 1717 he sold the same property to Abraham 
Bartlett, and is then described as " transient trader," a term applied to 
those who went about the country buying horses and bringing them to the 
coast for shipment. On Windham town records a deed appears, dated 11 
Dec 1716, from Eleazur Allen to James Brown of Gilford, etc. 

He was married at Windham, Conn., 10 Mar. 1718, to Esther 
Brougbton, daughter of John and Hannah (AUis), bom 10 Feb. 1700 
(n. 8.), died 29 Oct. 1754. He lived two or three years at Windham, and 
then removed to Middletown, Conn., where on 2 Dec. 1742 he bought 
Und of Jabez Hamilin, on which he built his home and in which he lived 
and died. In Sept. 1770 he conveyed this property to his sons Samuel, 
Hugh, and Nathaniel, and his daughter Elizabeth Cooper, " for the con- 
sideration of the paternal love and affection that I have for my children.

and also for the comfortable support of me and my son John Brown daring 
oar natural lives." In a will made in July of the same year he states 
that his daughter Mary's portion had already been given to her son Isaac 

He was married 8econ<Uy to Mart (Dowd, probably), but of this mar- 
riage no record has been found. She died 23 Apr. 1767, aged 69. During 
his last years he lived with his son Nathaniel, as did also £e brother John, 
who from the effects of a fall in childhood was- imbecile through a long 
life.* James Brown died 10 Dec. 1770, in his 96th year (gravestone), 
and Esther, his wife, died 29 Oct. 1754, in her 56th year (gravestone). 
Both were buried in the old Riverside (^metery in Middletown.

1911] Firtt Ovmership of Ohio Lands 51 


Bj Albiok Morris Dm, A.M.» of Cleyeland, Ohio 
[Oontinaed from Vol. 64, p. 369] 

Thk lists of names of first owners of lands within the limits of the State 
of CHiio, as proposed on an earlier page of this writing, here follow. They 
are constmcted for the purpose of this publication by comparison of the 
several documents mentioned.^^ 

FiKST Owners op Lands in Ohio 

The sale of lots or the Four Ranges of Townships at public vendue in 
the City of New York, September 21 to October 9, 1787, terminated the 
period of reservation or prohibition of ''settlement and purchase of the 
lands inhabited or claimed by the Indians." ^^ Purchasers of lots at this 
sale obtained thereby the right of entry and occupancy of the lands that 
they had purchased ; all others were trespassers, excepting the French and 
Canadians in the Illinois Company, who were protected by their oath of 
fidelity to Virginia.^ These purchasers received certificates of payment of 
purchase money issued by the Treasurer of the United States,^ which en- 
titled them to such right. Certain purchasers, no doubt, moved at once 
upon their lands, probably from the vantage camps on the Virginia hills over- 
looking the forbidden river, but other purchasers made no actual settlements ; 
facts to be ascertained by those especially interested.^^ Their names appear 
in the Schedule of Sales returned by the Treasurer of the United States 
after full payment for the lots had been made, as ordained by the act of 
Congress passed May 20, 1785. They appear also, except the forfeitures 
for non-payment of purchase money, in the official Record of Patents, and 
on the plats of the surveyors, to which reference has been made. 

The Schedule of Sales contains the names of purchasers with other data, 
in order as the sales were made ; description of each lot sold ; location by 
numerals to indicate the range, township, and lot ; number of acres in each 
lot ; amount of purchase price ; payments made, etc. The Record of Sales 
is a volume made up of printed blanks used by the Board of Treasury 
for recording the patents as issued, one full page for each lot patented. 

^ Cf. Bbowtbr for October, 1910, p. 869. 

^ Ab proclaimed according to Act of Congress passed September 22, 1783, entited 
** An ordinance prohibiting settlement and purchase of certain lands." 

» Cf. Bbgistbr for April, 1910, p. 268. 

^ Cf. note 84, tn/Va, section 4. Adrertisement of the Board of Treasury for the sale. 

** An entTT in the Joamal of John Matthews (Hildreth's Pioneer History of the Ohio 
Valley, p. Iw) is especially interesting in this connection : 

Horeinber SO. (17871 A part of this month I hare been on the West side of the Ohio with Mr 
Blmpson and Ck>lonel ilartln, assisting them In the snrrty of the lands they bought at the pnblie 
sales in New Tork... 

There is no record of a sale in the name of Simpson. James Simpson was Surveyor 
for the State of Maryland in the Geographer's Department, but Capt. Absalom Martin, 
Aurreyor for the State of New Jersey, purchased and occupied as nis permanent home 
two fractional lots on the Ohio Rlyer bottoms opposite Wheeling ; land which he had 
himself surreyed under Hutchins the year before. He took possession of his property 
within a month or six weeks of the date of sale, and appears to be the first known set- 
tler in the Western Territory. Captain Martin was the son of Ephraim Martin of 
Baskenridge, N. J. (cf. Papers of the Continental Congress, No. 66, p. 178), and his 
place on the Ohio Biyer was ttie landing place firom Wheeling, now known as Martin's 
Vmrrjf Ohio. 

TOL. LXY. 4 

52 First Ownership of Ohio Lands [Jan. 

The pages are numbered progressively and dated as filled out, and the 
blanks are filled in with name and other data corresponding with the items 
of the Schedule of Sales.^^ The plats of the surveyors show the exteriors 
of the townships as surveyed, on which are lines drawn at right angles to 
represent the 36 square lots in each township. The plats are drawn on the 
scale of 40 chains to the inch, making each of these lots two inches square, 
on which is written the name of purchaser, date, acres, etc. The lots are 
numbered, also the townships and ranges as required by the ordinance : 
Ranges; westward from i to vii beginning with the Pennsylvania line. 
Townships, northward from the river, each range beginning with Town- 
ship No. 1, and the lots ; northward from the base line of the township, in 
ranges of six, beginning with Lot i at the southeast corner.^ 

From this data not only the names of owners but the situation of each 
lot, according to present day geography, may be ascertained®* and designated 
by modem names of political divisions, county and township. The region 
covered by the seven Eanges of Townships may readily be traced on a map 

•t Many pages of this Tolume were not used, as the form was changed for the Pitts- 
burgh sale, and only 111 patents were issued. Some of the pages are signed with the 
names of the three memoers of the Board of Treasury, but most of them are not so 
signed. The patents are recorded in the several county records of Ohio, and they 
correspond with the form given in the Ordinance of May 20, 1785. 

^ Lots or sections in the Seven Ranges of Townships are not numbered as in the 
later surveys. According to the terms of the ordinance of May 20, 1785 : 

The plats of the towntthips respectively shall be marked bj subdivinroot into lots of one mile 
sqasre or 040 acres, in the »aine direction a« ttie external lines and numbered fh>m 1 to M, always 
beffiuuing the succeeding range of the lou with the number next to that with which the pre- 
eedlng one concluded, 

while the law of May 18, 1796, required that 

the sections shall be numbered respectively, beginning with number one, in the northeast 
section, aud prooeeding west and eavt alternately, through the township, with progressive nam- 
bers till tlie tQlrty*iixtlj be completed. 

Thus it happens that some of the townships of Columbiana, Carroll, and Stark 
eounties, part of which were outside the Old Seven Ranges of Townships, have two 
sets of townships and sections in the same townships with the same numbers. 

**The townships offered for sale were described by numerals in the advertisement 
published by the Board of Treasury, which reads as follows : 

Hay H, 1787. 
Thb Commissioners of the Board of Treasury of the United States, give notice, That on the

The admirable quality of these Lands, and the favorable climate in which they are situated* 
are too well known to need description. The conditions of sale are as follows, vis. 

1st. The townships or fractional paru of townships throughout the different ranges, will be 
sold either entire or iu lots in alternate order ; that is to say, where a township or Aractlonal 
part of a township is sold entire, the next will be sold In lots, agreeably to tlie ordinance of the 
20th of May. 1786. 

2d. The lands are not to be sold under a dollar per acre, payable in gold or silver, or any of 
the securities of the UiiiU>d Sutes.

fHustlonal parU of towunhips or lots; this payment to be made at the sales, and in case of fail- 
ure, the lands to be again exposed to public auction. 

ith. One third of the purchase money is to be paid at the time of purchase; and the remain*

are all within the four counties, Columbiana, Jefferson, Monroe, and Bel-

Barker, Sculp." issued for use of the second sale of lots, shows the survey as altered to 
fit the latest land laws, 1796. The sub-divisions sold at the New York sale are marked 
on this plat. This plate seems to have been used by Matthew Carey for editions of the 
American Atlas as late as 1818. (A reproduction from an original print is in Avery's 
History, vol. vi, betw. pp. 406 and 407.) 

An outline map of the State of Ohio, showing the land divisions, prepared by Col. 
Chas. Whittlesey and published in W. R. H. S. Tract No. 61, represents tho Seven 
Banges of Townships as extending northerly to the base line of the Western Keserve, 
whereas the writinss of Col. Whittlesey on this sub^'ect, in this and other publications, 
correctly describe Uie Ohio surveys. The strip ot land, twenty-five miles wide, be- 
tween the Seven Banges of Townships and the W^eslern Reserve, was surveyed in 1801 
by extending the ranges northward irom the East and West line to the 41^ of latitude, 
which wai» forbidden oy earlier resolution of Congress, May 9, 1786. 

** Dohrman [Dorhman] is the Portuguese refugee honored by Congress (Land 
Laws of the U. S., p. 222) with liberal pensions in recognition of his services to Amer- 
ican sailors during the war. After his escape from Lisbon he appears as a merchant 
in Chambers Street, New Tork. No doubt he attended the sale and made the first 
purchase of land on the public domain. Congress voted to him a township of land in 
the Seven Ranges of Townships, and he went west to take possession of his property. 
Ha lived and died at Steubenville, Jefferson County, where he lies buried, and where 
his descendants still reside. There are many traditions in the family concerning

*• Alexander Maoomb and William Edgar, of the city of New York, memorialised 
Congress, prajing 

that they may be permitted to eomplete the payment of the purchase money of a qnantlty of 
land, in the territory of the United States, northwest of the river Ohio, on the original terms of 
the purchase, and to obtain a grant for the same : or, that a law may be passed for granting to 
the memorialists so much of the said land, as will be in proportion whiw the sum heretofore 
paid by them bears to the whole amount of the purchase money. 

The memorial was read in the House, May 13, 1796 (Journal of the House, 4th Con- 
gress, 1st Session, p. 435), and reported upon by the committee on claims, January 30, 
1798 (6th Cong. 2d Bess., p. 179), and on the 30th of April following (p. 438-439) it waa 
resolved in the affirmative to agree with the report, wnich was in part as follows : 

Several of the lots for which the petitioners made their contract having been sold at Pittsburgh, 
In pursuance of the act of the eighteenth of May, one thousand seven hundred and ninety^slz, 
if the prayer of the petition should be granted, it will be necessary to indemnify the petitioners, 
by granting other lots of equivalent value. 

But, as the petitioners have shown no reason why they did not proceed tofhUll their contrael, 
excepting that their fhnds were otherwise employed, and as the United States must have In- 
curred considerable expenses in the negotiation when the contract was made with the petition* 
ers, the committee can And no reason why the forfeiture to which the petitioners have subjected 
themselves by the terms of their contract, should be remitted. They therefore report, as their 
opinion, that the prayer of the petition ought not to be granted.**

Land Owners on the Muskinoum 
While the first sale of lots was in progress at New York, the agents and 
directors of the Ohio Company of Associates were negotiating with die 
Committee of Congress for the purchase of the tract of land on the Mus- 
kingum River, west of the seventh range of townships. Papers were 
signed for this purchase, and for the Scioto River tract, on the 27th of 
October, 1787, and title to the property passed from the United States on 
that date. Prior to this date the Ohio Company had arranged to apportion 
the lands of their purchase among the proprietor-shareholders of die com- 
pany, in number about a thousand, one numbered subdivision in each allot- 
ment for each share. Plans were formed at a series of meetings, beginning 
August 29, 1787, and extending beyond the date of signature to July 7, 
1788, for the distribution of these shares of the lands to the proprietors by 
a method of drafts, the details of which appear in the form of resolutions

60 First Ovmerahip of Ohio Lands [Jan. 

Lists of the drafts kept by Col. May famish means of obt^ning the names 
of the proprietors of the Ohio Company, owners of lands on the Muskingum ' 
River, 1788-1792.^*^ They present the drafts by name and number of the 
proprietor, the agency from which the share» were obtained, and the 
various numbers of Uie lots drawn against each name. An early list, 
dated 1 788, gives names about in order of the alphabet, but a later list, 
1796,^*** gives data from which corrections may be made, showing changes 
of residence, assignments of title, forfeitures, etc. A list, constructed from 
these sources follows, giving names of proprietors, residence, agency and 
number of shares held,^°* the corrections taken from the attested copy being 
inserted in each case in brackets. 

Extracts from the Journal of Col. John May (Cincinnati, Bobert Clarke ft Co., 
1873), relating to the distribution of lots on the Muskingum : 

p. 69. [May 27, 1788] At to our sunreyinc, balldinffs, etc., they are in a yery backward way. 
Little appears to be doncjand a great deal of time and money miispent. . . . 

p. 60. Xmny 28, 1788] The directors and agents present agreed to lease the minisUrial lot to 
different persons, in lots of ten acres each, for a term not less than one hundred years, at the 
option of the lessee—to be without rent the first ten years, and then a fixed rent the remainder 
of the time. This was done to accommodate a number of proprietors present, whose e^kl-aor€ 
loti were drawn at a distance. Went this afternoon to surrey the ten^tcre totit and drew for 
them in the erening. Colonel Sproat drew No. 0; Varnnm, 10; May, U; Sargent, 12; Parsons, 
13, etc. . . . 

p. 63. [June 7, 1788] General Varnnm and his party are making difflcalties about the e^^M- 
aere loti not being drawn oontlguoas to the city; also, with respect to the Scioto nnrchase. 
The rations are not good. General Pntnam did not strictly adhere to orders glren at Brackett*a 
tarern In Boston, and Rice's tarem at ProTldenoe. I think I foresee difflcalties of a more 
serious natore. 

p. 65. [June 9, 17881 . . . Met to settle difflcultles respecting the elght^usre lots; but we 
could not agree, and adjourned until to.morrow, at 6 o'clock a.m. . 

L66. [June 10. 1788] . . . Met this morning, according to a4Joamment, and after mneh 
te and discussion, agreed to cut up our commons into three-^icre lots, to be drawn for in 
July. This has appeased the minds of the people. We also appointed officers of police. 

p. 76. X*^''^7 ^* ^*^] * * * Attended myself a meeting of directors and agents, according to 
order at Providence, 8th Msrch. Chose a committee to make preparation for drawing the cUif 
loti. Entered into several debates, and at 2 o'clock adjourned until Monday, 7th Inst., at 
8 o'clock in the morning, for the purpose of drawing the dtp lote^ and transacting such other 
business as may be thought necessary for the establishment of our Infant settlement. . . . 
p. 70. [July 6, 1788] ... I am employed myself in preparing for tke dramghti of the dty 

p.* 82.* [July 7, 1788] . . . We hare drawn the city lots to-day. . . . 

^^ Several of the official drafts, two of which are in the library of the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, were found in the chest of Col. John May, which, with 
its contents, is now in the Western Reserve Historical Society. 

^^ In the Col. John May collection, W: R. H. S. Attested copy of an instrument

[The foregoing material makes public for the first time the English home 
of Christopher Gibson, Edward Sale, and William Preston, early settlers 
of New England ; gives possible clues to the origin of Robert Seabrook, 
James Priest, Richard Ingraham, and John Grove, other early emigrants ; 
and with other data enables us to understand nearly all the relationships 
expressed in the will of Christopher Gibson in 1674. The latter came 
with Winthrop in 1630, was a soap-boiler by occupation, and a man of 
substance ; and, although he had no children, his name survives among us 
to this day in the " Christopher Gibson School " and the " Christopher ' 
Gibson Playground " in Dorchester, as memorials of his legacy to the free 
school in that town. 

Having no relatives here and no children of his own, Gibson made be- 
quests to various relatives of his two wives, calling them his kinsfolk. 
" Sister Foster " was Mary Bate, bom 1619, wife of Capt Hopestill Fos- 
ster, daughter of James Bate and sister of Margaret Bate, second wife of 
Gibson. " Cousin Hopestill Foster jun. " was her son. " Cousin Thomas 
Dampford " was Thomas' Danforth, Jr., bom in 1654, son of Hon. Thomas 
and Mary (Withington) Danforth, whose aunt Anne Withington married 
James Bate, Jr., brother to Margaret Bate, second wife of Gibson. " Cou- 
sin Ebenezer Williams " was son of Roger Williams of Dorchester by wife 
Lydia Bate, sister of Gibson's second wife. " Brother Edward Sealle " 
was brother of Sarah Sale, first wife of Gibson. " Ephraim Serle " and " Re- 
becca Sealle, wife of Garrat Ingram,*' were children of said Edward Sale ; 
and "Alice Serle" was wife of Ephraim and "Hannah Sealle," their 
daughter. " William Ingraham " was brother of Garrat Ingraham. " Gib- 
son Farr," bom in 1666, was son of Eleazer Farr, who married Mary 
Preston, daughter of Daniel Preston and granddaughter of William Pres- 
ton, who married Elizabeth Saje, sbter of Gibson's first wife. " Cousin 
Joseph Alsop jr." was son of Joseph Alsop, who married Elizabeth Pres- 
ton, daughter of William Preston, who married Elizabeth Sale. " Brother 
James Brett" means James Bate, Jr., brother of Gibson's second wife. 
"Sister Mansfield" seems to refer to Mary, wife of John Mansfield of 
Boston, formerly wife of John Gove ; possibly she was Mary Sale, bom 
in 1604, sister of Gibson's first wife. How William Lane was "brother " 

to Gibson is not clear. " Sister Snelling " must refer to Sarah j 

who married, about 1656, John Snelling of Boston, but her connection with 
Gibson is not apparent. A James Priest was baptized at Chesham 5 Nov. 
1610, son of Abraham and Elizabeth (Nuens) Priest ; perhaps he was our 
emigrant of Weymouth in 1 640 and the legatee of Gibson's will. The name 
Ingraham is common in Bucks, and it may be found that Richard Ingra- 
ham, father of William and Garrat, came from that county. Elizabeth, 
"John Withington's wife," was daughter of Daniel Preston and grand- 
daughter of William Preston. 

1911] Ghnealogtcai Besearch in England 67 

Of Gibson's " honored Mends," Gov. Leverett's wife, Sarah Sedgewick, 
belonged to a family located at Wobum, co. Beds, and Edward Tyng's wife 
was Mary Sears, daughter of Francis Sears of Layton Buzzard, co. Beds. 
These places are but five miles apart and about twenty miles north of 
Chesham ; and Christopher Gibson probably originated in their vicinity. 

Heretofore it has always been supposed that William Preston came from 
Giggleswick in Yorkshire, where he appears to have had property. This 
place is over two hundred miles north of Chesham, where it now appears 
he certainly lived for over twenty years before emigrating to America. 

The registers of Chesham show the marriage, on 10 June 1630, of 
2^achariah Whitman and Sarah Biscoe, baptized at Chesham 9 Nov. 1606, 
daughter of Richard and Martha Biscoe. This couple are evidently the 
Zacharia Whitman, aged 40, and wife Sarah, aged 25, who came to New 
England in the Truelove in Sept 1635, the same ship that brought William 
Preston from Chesham. This Zachariah Whitman was a brother of John 
Whitman of Weymouth, ancestor of most of the Whitmans of America. 
Besearch in Bucks may unearth the Whitman ancestry. J. G. Babtlett.] 

Sale of Blbdow, Co. Bucks 
[The two following wills are the earliest testaments in the Archdeaconry 
of Bucks of the Sales of Bledlow. A study of these wills and the extracts 
from the registers indicate that both testators were bom not far from 1545, 
and so probably were of a later generation than the first John Sale, who 
settled in Chesham, and whose wife was bom about 1525. It is likely that 
Amy Sale, the testatrix of 1608, was widow of a brother of James Sale, 
the testator of 1608. There are several wills of descendants at Bledlow 
of James Sale, and also of Amy Sale, but they throw no light on the Sale 
^unily of Chesham, which furnished the emigrant to New England.]

Samuel Cooke & Dorcas Bradstreet, 28 Sept. 1682 

[The will of John Bradstreet of Capel, dated 161 0, mentions a nephew 
Humphrey Bradstreet, probably the emigrant Humphrey Bradstreet, aged 
40, who came in 1634 ^m Ipswich in the ship Elizabeth with wife Bridget 
and children Hannah, John, Martha, and Mary. It will be remembered 
that Isaac Mixer and his family, who came in the same ship, were also 
from Capel (Register, vol. 63, p. 277). I believe John of Capel, the 
testator of 1610, and his brother Thomas (probably father of Humfrey), to 
be the sons of that name bom to Humfrey Bradstreet of Gislingham in 
1568 and 1571. I also believe that the son Simon Bradstreet, mentioned 
in the wil] of John Bradstreet of Gislingham in 1559, was the father of 
Rev. Simon Bradstreet and grandfather of Governor. Simon Bradstreet. 
It is known that the Governor's father, Rev. Simon, born about 1565-70, 
was a minister and held a living at Horbling, Lincolnshire, where the Grov- 
emor was bom in 1603, and that before this he held a living at Hinderclay, 
CO. Suffolk, which is only ^ve miles from Gislmgham. (For the will of 
Rev. Simon Bradstreet of Horbling see Register, vol. 48, p. 170.) ITiere 
were Bradstreet families at Buxhall and vicinity, but there is no apparent 
connection with the Gislingham and Capel families. E. F.] 

[The above suggestion, Qiat Humphrey Bradstreet, nephew of John of 
Capel, the testator of 1610, was the emigrant to New England, seems 
probably correct. It seems unlikely, however, that John of Capell, who died 
in 1610, was identical with John, born in 1571, the son of Humphrey of 
Gislingham. Capel, Bentley, and Wenham are adjacent parishes in Suf- 
folk, about ^yt miles southwest of Ipswich, and Gislingham is some thirty 
miles north of them. A Robert Bradstreet was taxed in Capel, and a 
Henry Bradstreet in Bentley, in the Suffolk Subsidy of 1568, and it is 
likely that one of these, probably Robert, was the father of John of Capel, 
the testator of 1610. In the Suffolk Subsidy of 1524 an Edmund Brad- 
strett and an Eklmund Bradstet junior were assessed at Bentley. 

The suggested line of ancestry of Gov. Bradstreet seems reasonable, and 
it is to be hoped that further evidence on this line may be found. 

The Suffolk Subsidy for 1327 has but three mentions of Bradstreet in 
the whole county : Roger de Bradestret of Combs, Hugo de Brastrete of 
Great Finborough, and William de Brakstrete of Greeting. 

Th^se three parishes are contiguous and adjacent to Buxhall, which is 
in the centre of Suffolk and just half way between Gislingham and Capel. 
It therefore seems likely that the Bradstreet family originated near Bux- 
hall, and that in the fifteenth century branches spread north some fifteen 
miles to Gislingham and south an equal distance to Capel.

Helen, the relict and executrix named in the will. (Archdeaconry of Suf- 
folk (Ipswich), 1621, 29.) 

[George Barrell came to Boston in 1637 &om St. Michael's, Wangford 
Hundred, Suffolk (Register, vol. 61, p. 69). By St. Michael's is meant the 
parish of South Elmham St. Michael's. There are six South Elmhams : 
South Elmham All SaintsK^um-St. Nicholas, South Elmham St. Cross or 
Sandcroft St George, South Elmham St. James, South Elmham St. Mar- 
garet, South Elmham St. Michael, and South Elmham St. Peter. An- 
ciently it was customary to call these places simply by the name of the 
chnrch. The only other Barrell will found is of too early a date in the six- 
teenUi century to trace any connection with this family. Savage calls the 
emigrant William Barrell a brother of George, but there is no evidence for 
this assertion, which appears to be erroneous. £, F. j

76 Revolutionary Soldiers of York County ^ Me. [Jan. 



Communicated by Gbobob Waltbb Cuambb&lain, M.S., of Maiden, Mass. 

Forty-five years after the beginning of the American Revolu- 
tion there were 249 persons living in York County who appeared 
before Benjamin Greene of South Berwick, Chief Justice of the 
Court of Common Pleas for the first eastern circuit of Maine, to 
present their claims for pensions from the United States Govern- 
ment. The sessions of Court were held at York on July 4 and 5, 
1820, and at Alfred on July 18, 19, and'20 following. 

Each applicant for pension was required to make an afiidavit of 
his services and present conditions for record in the Court and to be 
transmitted to the ofiice of the Secretary of War. These afiidavits 
in York County were arranged alphabetically and recorded in the 
Common Pleas Records, vol. 38, pp. 254-506, by Daniel Sewall, 

Somewhat over fifty of the applications were reversed at this ses- 
sion, and later many of these persons and about twenty others pre- 
sented their claims more fully than had been done in 1820. The 
later affidavits give much military information concerning the soldier 
as well as interesting facts about each family, and are recorded in 
several volumes of tibe court records {vide infra) . 

It must be remembered that, in 1820, Berwick included the pres- 
ent towns of Berwick and North Berwick ; Shapleigh, the present 
towns of Shapleigh and Acton ; HoUis, the present towns of HoUis 
and Dayton ; Saco, the present city of Saco and the town of Old 
Orchard ; while the town of Arundel has been changed to Kenne- 

The families herein given include only those living with each ap- 
plicant at the date of his application.

1911] Proceedings of the Jf, E. Hist. Gen. Society 83 



By John Alb&bb, Recording Secretary 

Boston^ MassachuseUs, 4 May^ 1910. A stated meeting of the Society was 
held at Pilgrim Hall, U Beacon Street, at 2.30 p.Mm President Baxter presiding. 

The minutes of the April meeting were read and approved. 

The reports of the Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Coun- 
cil were accepted. 

Fifteen members were elected by ballot to resident membership. 

Henry ^ Chapman, D.D., LL.D., Professor of English Literature and Lan- 
guage, Bowdoin College, and Vice-President of the Maine Historical Society, 
read a paper on Joel Barlow and hU Columbiady in which he told of Barlow's 
interesting career as a patriot, man of affiiirs, diplomat, and man of letters, and 
commented on the fact that there still remains against Barlow the hostility bom 
of political prejudices, the occasion of which has long since been forgotten. 

A vote of thanks of the Society was extended to I^ofessor Chapman for his 
learned address, and for his careful and discriminating delineation of one who 
was a patriot and a poet. 

The meeting then dissolved, after which refreshments were served. 

6 October. A stated meeting of the Society was held at Pilgrim Hall, 14 
Beacon Street, Boston, at 2.30 p.m., President Baxter presiding. 

The minutes of the May meeting were read and approved. 

The reports of the Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Coun- 
cil were accepted. 

Twenty members were elected by ballot to resident membership. 

On motion, it was

said legacy, subject to the said restrictions. 

It was announced that the City Council of Boston had taken action relative 
to marking the scions of the Old Elm on the Common, as recommended by this 

The paper of the afternoon was on Early American Jewish History^ by Lee M. 
Friedman, LL.B., a member of the Suffolk Bar, in which he presented the results 
of his study of the history of a people that are frequently styled alien, but who, 
from the time of Columbus's first voyage, have been interwoven with the events 
of the American continent. He mentioned especially, among others, Solomon 
Franko, who was in Boston In 1649, the first recorded Jew in the present United 
States, Judah Monls, for forty years the Instructor In Hebrew at Harvard Col- 
lege, and Haym Salomon of Philadelphia, the ardent patriot and substantial sup- 
porter of Jefferson, Madison, and Munroe in the dark times of the Revolution. 

Rev. Anson Titus spoke of a visit to the grave of Monls at Northborough, >f ass., 
and on his motion a vote of thanks of the Society was extended to Mr. Friedman 
for his paper, so interestingly presented, in which were embodied the results 
of extensive and accurate research. 

Frank B. Sanborn of Concord spoke of Samuel Gk>rdon's book on the Excel- 
lency of the Jewish Character and the Chrlstlanlzatlon of Jerusalem, which was 
written In Boston at the time Franko was here. It was attributed for years to 
fiCilton, but Gordon's authority Is now proven. 

The meeting was dissolved, after which refreshments were served and an 
exhibit of noteworthy genealogies was Inspected.

Mr. George Francis Dow, Secretary of the Essex Institute, Salem, spoke on 
Ten English Tovtns^ which he visited recently, and whose names are borne by 
towns in Essex County in Massachusetts. The address was replete with in- 
cident, description, historical fact, and anecdote. 

Archibald M. Howe and James H. Stark spoke of visits they had made in 
England, and on motion of Charles Sidney Ensign a vote of thanks of the 
Society was given to Mr. Dow for his account of his journey to the Old English 
Towns, for which his enthusiastic and thorough work on behalf of their New 
England namesakes especially prepared him. 

The meeting then dissolved, after which refreshments were served, and the 
collection of all the volumes of Massachusetts vital records thus far printed 
was inspected. 


It having oome to the attention of this Society that certain 
genealogists and publishers have used the name of the Society 
in connection with their own enterprises, the Society again de- 
sires to state that it has TS(0 genealogical representatiyes in this 
country or in England, nor is it in any way connected with any 
publications other than those that it issues over its own name 
at 18 Somerset Street, Boston. 

The Committee on English Besearch desires to state, however, 
that although the Society has no oficial representative in England 
the Committee is employing Miss French as a record searcher there 
along special lines for the benefit of the Bbgisteb. 

Kino, Browke. — In Fhillimore and Gumey*s Buckinghamshire Parish Regis- 
ters, vol. 6, pp. 10, 11, occur the following marriages at High Wycombe : 
Daniel King & Eliz. Guy 4 Oct. 1624 

Chaddus Browne & Eliz. Sharparowe 11 Sept 1626 

It was surmised by Mr. Henry F. Waters, who furnished the information to 
Mr. Bufus King for his '^ Pedigree of King of Lynn, Mass.," that Daniel King, 
Sr.,'s wife*s family name was Guy. Her first name was known to be Elizabeth. 
The correctness of the surmise is borne out by the marriage mentioned above, 
to which Mr. Waters has called attention. High Wycombe is not far from Bea- 
consfield, in the same county, of which place Daniel King, Jr., was in May 1658, 
being bound for New England. (Cf . Register, vol. 33, pp. 376-6.) 

The date of Chaddus Browne*s marriage, as above, and the first name of his 
wife, are right for Chad Browne of Rhode Island. The locality seems likely, 
judging by the names of his associates as shown by Sylvester Baldwin's nun- 
cupative will. {Ex inform. William P. Greenlaw; cf. Chad Browne Memorial, 
pp. 7-8, and Waters*s Genealogical Gleanings, vol. 1, p. 708.)

Lkvkrett.— (Cf . Rbgistkr, vol. 86, pp. 273-^, 846-56.) The theory that the 
address on the letter of King Charles to Gov. Leverett, which led to the assump- 
tion that Leverett may have been knighted, was due to a clerical error, is borne 
out by the following fact. 

The letter in question was granted on petition of John Wampus alias White, who 
was in prison in London for debt. In this petition Wampus prays for a letter to 
** Sir John Leverett." (Colonial Entry Book, vol. 93, p. 150 ; Papers, vol. 37, p. 
49.) Doubtless the scrivener who wrote the petition accepted it as a matter of 
oourse that so prominent a man had some title, and gave him that of Sir. The 
error was passed along by the clerks in the government, who then as now would 
not be apt to verify a title so common as that of Sir ; hence the address '^ S' John 
Leverltt, Knt." As to the reading of the date of receipt of the letter, Savage 
was probably correct in making it out 2 June 1677. From a court paper in 
Suffolk files (1642) it appears that Wampus brought over the letter himself, and 
arrived In the "spring of 1677," later more closely fixed by "four months 
since," the date of the entry being October. It is also an interesting fact that 
Robert Taft of Mount Hope was one of the men who became associated with 
Pratt and Blake in the attempt to establish their claim to lands under a grant 
from Wampus, which finally culminated in the incorporation of Sutton. It was 
at an Indian court held at Coowate at the lower falls of Charles Blver, In 1677, 
that Wampus's claims to possess land In severalty were repudiated by the Indians. 
This is one of the localities where the Christian Indians were allowed to settle 
at the end of the war, whilst hostilities were still being carried on, and was 
eridently an ancient village site, as during the past few years my son has quite 
thoroughly searched this locality and unearthed a number of stone Implements, 
chips, and pottery, as have others In former years. The site of the village would 
seem to be in the little dell stUl partly existing in the ravine just north of Glen 
Bead on the Wellesley side of the river at Newton Lower Falls, and between the 
Metropolitan Park reservation and Glen Boad. The brook rising at Indian 
Spring, and that from the Hundreds, enter the river near this spot.

Spinney, Randall, Nobman. — Pope's Maine and New Hampshire Pioneers, if 
pabUshed^at the time, would have subjected the author to an action for libel, for 
he says that the unfortunate young woman, Margery Randall, was found guilty, 
because she was unable to prove her marriage to William Norman, whereas a 
few pages further along the records show Norman's confession of having grlev* 
ously wronged her by marrying her without having been divorced from his wife 
In England ; whereupon Margerjr's marriage was annulled, with alimony, and he 
was banished the province under pain of death. Thomas Spinney was men- 
tioned In these proceedings, and this was doubtless the Margery that became his 
wife. It is commonly stated that Mary, wife of John Femald, was daughter of 
Thomas Spinney, but I surmise that she was daughter of William and Margery 
Norman by this bigamous marriage. Norman was prosecuted for this double 
marriage, in March 1650-1, and the History of Kittery says that John and Mary 
were married before 1669. Thomas Sphmey does not mention Mary in his will, 

86 ITotes [Jan. 

althoagh it was witnessed by a Mary Fenudd ; bat he had previoasly conveyed 
to John Fernald a piece of land by a peculiarly worded deed. Whether the origi- 
nal deed is in existence I know not, but I have closely examined the original reconl. 
Entries with comma and ampersand are common, as for instance, ^' Thomas Spin- 
ney, & Margery his wife," who are the grantors ; bat there is no ampersand in de- 
fining Mary's parentage. The entry rcAds : ^^ John Fernald, of the same town, 
shoemaker, who married Mary the daughter of the said Spinney, his said wife." 
This is the ancient possessive case and means Mary the daughter of said Spin- 
ney's said wife. Of coarse all the facts must have been weU known in Kittery 
at the time this deed was drawn and recorded. Many worthy and some very 
prominent people come from John and Mary, and it looks as though we must 
acknowledge our descent from an ill-regulated and cruel, though apparently re- 
pentant, man and his unfortunate but blameless mate. On the other hand It 
should be said that later on in the deed the language is **■ their said daughter,** 
and that after John Femald's death Thomas Spinney stood as the grandfather 
of his minor children. The language of the deed, however, appears to be un- 
mistakable, as also that Mary was not Spinney, except aa Thomas was a good 
father to her. Chables Thornton Libbt.

HuMFRET. — In a study of the life of John Humfrey, one of the founders of 
the Massachusetts Bay Colony, I have been led to the conclusion that he was 
the John Humfrey who signed the pedigree in Harleian MS. 1166, fo. 9\ as pub- 
lished in the Visitation of Dorset, 1628, p. 57. He is recorded there as son and 
heir of '' Michael Humfrey of Chaldon in com. Dorset," and aged 26 years In 
1628, with wife Elizaljeth, daughter of '* Herbert Felham of Compton in com. 
Dorset," and John Humfrey, son and heir, aged one year. 

On page 105 of the History of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company is 
the statement that John Humfrey's eldest son John joined the company in 1641, 
which would make him about 19 or 20 at that time. 

But the best evidence of identity is a comparison of the pedigree signature 
with the signature of John Humfrey in his letter to his brother-in-law, Isaac 
Johnson, in 1680, as shown in 4 Mass. Historical Society Collections, vol. 6, 
pi. 1.* Though written seven years apart, and the signature attached to the 
pedigree a formal one, while the other was a careless one closing a familiar let- 
ter to his brother-in-law, I believe any expert in hand writing would pronounce 
them belonging to the same hand. 

It would be interesting to obtabi, if possible, the will of Michael Humfrey. 
He is mentioned in the list of adventurers at Cape Ann by John White of Dor- 
chester in 1684, but among those ^'all sithence deceased" (Rboister, vol. 61, 
p. 279). Further along in the list we find '^ John Humfrey, gent., living in New 

I thhik investigation will prove that Michael Humfrey of Windsor, Conn., was 
a grandson of the Michael of the Dorset pedigree and nephew of John Humfrey 
of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

If the foregoing descent be correct, it is evident that the Lady Sasan, sister 
of the Earl of Lincoln, was his second wife and not the mother of John the 
eidest son. It is also probable that he was a brother-in-law of Herbert Pelham, 
another of the founders of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Mjlxob of East GREENWiCH.^The expression in early charters and grants in 
New England, in substance, that the land was to be held in full and common 
socage as of the King's Manor of East Greenwich in the County of Kent, has 
troubled many people and has given rise to various explanations, many of them 
fanciful. The same expression was used in the grant by James I in 1608 to cer- 
tain Benchers of the Inner Temple and Middle Temple of the ground and build- 
ings occupied by them. What may be considered an authoritative explanation 
of the phrase is given by a Bencher of the Middle Temple, Arthur Robert 
Ingpen, K. C, In a note to page 25 of a recent edition of ^^ Master Worsley's 
Book,*' a history of the Middle Temple, a copy of which follows : 

*' The Manor of East Greenwich belonged formerly to the priory and convent 
of Shene, and was granted by the Prior to the King, 23 Hen. VIII, to be annexed 
to the patrimony of the Crown (Hasted's ' Hist, of Kent,* 1778). Prior to abo- 
lition of Feudal tenure by 12 Car. II, c. 24, if the king granted lands without 
reserving any particular service or tenure the patentee would hold of him In caplte 
by knights-service. The king was empowered by statute 35 Hen. VIII, c. 14, as 
to the lesser monasteries, and by statute 37 Hen. VIII, c. 20, as to all manors 
and land not exceeding 40s. per ann. in value, and by whatever title acquired, to 
grant the same to be holden of the king, either by knights-service in caplte, or 
by fealty in socage or burgage and not in caplte. Subsequently by statute 1 
Edw. VI, c. 4, It was declared that all estates, without any limit as to value, 
holden of the king his heirs and successors by knights-service, socage or other- 
wise as of any of his or their Dukedoms, Earldoms, Baronies, Castles, or Manors 
which came to the Crown by means of any dissolution, surrender, attainder, con- 
viction, or outlawry should not be taken to be holden in caplte or as tenure In ca- 
plte. Thenceforth Crown grants by Letters Patent, and even statutory grants of 
Crown lands (see 27 Ellz., c. 27), are frequently found to be In form * Tenendum 
de nobis et heredibus nostris in libera et conmiune soclag fldellbat tantum ut de 
manerlo nostris de East Greenwich in Com. KantisB.* The tenendum ^ as of our 
Manor of East Greenwich in free and common socage by fealty only * was a fiction 
intended to create an estate within the meaning of the statute I Edw. VI, c. 4, 
and to express that the grantee held free of all services except fealty, which is 
an essential Incident to every tenure and cannot be released. This was also for- 
merly a common form in the charters to the old English Colonies in America. 
An amusing speech was made by Sir James Marriott In addressing the House of 
Commons on the question of American taxation. He declared *• that It appeared 
to him that the matter had been mistaken through the whole argument. It had 
been contended tliat America should not be taxed, because she was not repre- 
sented. But the assertion was untrue, seeing that when we took possession of 
America, we did so as part and parcel of the Manor of East Greenwich in the 
County of Kent* (Polsln's * Law and Lawyers,' 1868, p. 177). The correspond- 
ing stock manor of the Duchy of Lancaster was the Manor of Enfield In the 
County of Mld^esex. The Manor of the Temple, although originally of the Honor 
of Leicester and Duchy of Lancaster, ceased to be connected with the Duchy on 
the vesting In the crown by B2 Hen. VTII, c. 24." James W. Hawks.

English Ancestry of President Fillmore. — The ancestry of President 
Millard Fillmore was Investigated In 1857 by Dr. Ashbel Woodward of Frank- 
lin, Conn., who printed a genealogy of the family In the Register In April of 
that year. He deduced the President's descent from one John FUlmore, mari- 
ner, who married, in 1701, Abigail Tllton, and died at sea before 1711. The Eng- 
lish origin of this John Fillmore, mariner, has never been definitely ascertained. 
Dr. Woodward stated that his researches made It quite probable. If the evidence 
is not quite conclusive, that John Fillmore, or more likely his ancestors (origi- 
nally from EngUnd), emigrated first to Nova Scotia, and that subsequently John 

88 Notes [Jan. 

settled in the colony of Massachnsetts. Unfortunately Dr. Woodward did not say 
on wliat evidence this theory was based, but from the way in which he refers to 
the very eminent family of Filmer of Kent, now represented by Sir Robert Marcos 
Filmer, Bart., itwonld appear that he thought tliat the American Fillmores came 
from that stock ; but it is unlikely that this is anything more than a guess on the 
part of Dr. Woodward. That Filmer and Filmore, or Fillmore, are inter- 
changeable forms of the same name is well known. In a biographical notice of 
President Fillmore the IlluBtrated London News claimed a Devonshire origin for 
his family on probably no better evidence than Dr. Woodward possessed. Possi- 
bly this origin may have been suggested by or through Lewis Filmore, a Jour- 
nalist engaged at one time on the London Times^ whose ancestors held a respect- 
able position at Lympstone in Devonshire. What adds to tills probability is that 
there is record of a John FUmore sailing from the adjoining port of Topsham 
in the early eighteenth century. He may be identical with the mariner John 
Fillmore, but tiiere Is nothing to show It, and so far the English origin remains 

We have two groups of the name. The Filmers, sometimes Filmore and es- 
pecially Finimore, settled In Kent In the 14th century, and the FUmores of Devon 
settled there at least as early as the 16th century. Hitherto I have been Inclined 
to favor a Devonshire origin for the President*s family, but an entry which I 
have just come across, whilst editing the second volume (soon to be issued) of 
my Kent Parish Register series^ inclines me to think that after all the President 
may come from the Kentish family. The entry In question is : Comfort Filmer 
and Mary Crane, married by license at Willesborough, Kent, 5 July 1784. 

The significance of this entry lies In the fact that Nathaniel Fillmore, the 
President's grandfather, had an uncle named Comfort Fillmore, born 1742, died 
1814 ; the latter also having a son Comfort Day Fillmore, bom In 1792. It will 
be seen that the American Comfort Fillmore was contemporary with but proba- 
bly somewhat senior to the English Comfort Filmer. The adoption of so un- 
usual a Christian name Is surely more than a mere coincidence. 

Up to the present time I. have thought that this Christian name of the Presi- 
dent's great unde belonged to that class of personal names derived from moral 
qualities, such as Faith, Hope, Charity, but the coincidence of the use of " Com- 
fort " as a Christian name by an English family of Filmer and an American Fill- 
more, almost contemporaneously, has led me to luquire if it may not be due to 
a desire to perpetuate the memory of some family bearing the name of Comfort. 
Though It seems rare, I find that such a surname exists. It Is first alluded to 
by Lower, who suggests that It Is a contracted form of the place name Comer- 
ford, but it is not even mentioned by either Guppy or Bardsley. However, we 
find a few references to the name in the calendars to the wills In the Preroga- 
tive Court of Canterbury, which have been printed by the British Becord Society, 
Thus we have : 

Ambrose Comforte, Battle, Sussex 1661 

Blchard Comferett, Newport Pond, Essex 

and Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire 1688 
Elizabeth widow of Thomas Comfort of 

Keyston, Huntingdonshire 1626 

Thomas Comforte, jun., smith of Keldore 

Huntingdonshire 1627 

Hlchard Comfort alias Comport, yeoman, 

of Whltechapel, Middlesex 1628 

Thomas Comforte, yeoman, of Ashe Kent 1628 

It Is evident that the Comforts belong to the southeast of England, and it is 
obviously possible that In the last named Thomas Comfort of Ashe we may have 
an ancestor of Comfort Filmer who married at Willesborough In 1784, and pos- 
sibly, too, of Comfort Fillmore who married in America In 1763. It must be 
borne in mind that In Kent there are two villages named Ashe, one In the west- 
em part of that county a few miles from London, and the other In the north- 
eastern part near the Isle of Thanet, about twenty miles from Willesborough. 

Though obviously we have here nothing more than a possible clue to President 
Fillmore's English ancestry, these brief notes well Illustrate the Importance of 
having the leading English records in print. When more Kentish parish reg- 
isters have been transcribed and printed, and when the British Record Society 
continues the issue of Its calendars of P. C. C. wUls, It will be easier to trace

Southampton Pilgrim Memorial. — It is proposed to commemorate the ap- 
proaching tercentenary of the sailing of the Mayjlower from Southampton by 
the erection of a memorial to the Pilgrim fathers near the site of embarkation 
in 1620. A design for the monument has been prepared and the plans accepted. 
Towards the expense a sum of over £260 has been contributed. Donations may 
be sent to Mr. H. A. Cushing, Secretary of t^e New England Society, 48 Cedar 
Street, New York. 

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

A history of the descendants of Gamaliel Beaman and Sarah Clark of Dorchester 
and Lancaster, Mass.^ by Emily BEABiAN Wooden, A. M. 1909. 6^ pp. 209, 

This book is the fruit of years of research to obtain names and dates and to 
trace lost lines ; it contains valuable data, including parentage and dates of birth 
and death of those who married into the Beaman family, and brings the de- 
scendants of Gamaliel down to 1909. It Is provided with an index. The rev- 
olutionary records of all Massachusetts soldiers bearing this name are given. 
The book concludes with the account of the captivity of Mrs. Bowlandsbn of 
Lancaster, Mass., 1675. Gkunaliel Beaman settled In Dorchester in 1659, went 
to Lancaster, was driven away by Indians, but returned in 1680. The " Beaman 
oak/* which he planted on his home lot, is shown in the frontispiece. English 
records have been consulted to find the home of the family in England.

Mr. Allen's work began twenty years ago by personal research in the records 

of Massachusetts and eastern Connecticut, supplemented by correspondence 

with relatives. Nicholas Cady of Watertown took the oath of fidelity in 1652. 

His wife was Judith Knapp, daughter of William. They went to Groton about 

166H , and their sons and grandsons removed to Connecticut. The book Is arranged

■ocordtng to the plan adopted by the Rroibtbr. All dates prior to 1742 con- 
form to the old style then in use. The descendants of the daughters of the 
Cady line are gi^en as far as their grandchildren, and the place and date of birth 
of persons marrying into the Cady family are given, if possible, and often an 
ontline of ancestry and personal history. Among the portraits is one of Eliz- 
abeth Cady Stanton. In the appendix is a list of soldiers of the Bevolntion 
bearing the Cady name. 

Ck>lcord Genealogy. De»cendant$ of Edward Colcord of New Hampshire, 1630

Condersport, Pa. 1908. Press of Potter County Journal, Coudersport, Pa. 
8» pp. 134-43, illus. 

This book, the author states. Is to prove that the American Colcords are de- 
scendants of Samuel Colcord of Kingston, N. H., and his father Bdward Colcord 
or Colcott who came to New England, 1630-1, from co. Hants, England. Only 
families bearing the Colcord name are included in the body of the book, but lists 
of descendants bearing other names are given in the appendix. There is a list 
of soldiers of the Revolution from whom descendants of Samuel Colcord may 
claim descent, and a Civil War army roll. The volume is provided with a chart 
showing lines of descent, and abounds with family portraits and short autobi- 
ographies. There are two indexes, one of the Colcord given names and another 
of names other than Colcord.

The text of this book is an address delivered at the dedication of a monument 
In Wolfville, N. S., to William Coaldwell and Jane Jordan, his wife, who emi- 
grated to Acadia after the English took possession. The story of these adven- 
turous pioneers is well told and very interesting. The name Cauldwell was ap- 
plied to the family In Scotland, Coldwell in England, and Colwell in Ireland. In 
this country and Nova Scotia the name has been also written Caldwell. The 
The author has compiled the genealogical matter with great care, insisting upon 
dates, phices and names in full, and incorporating many biographical notes. 
He has made no attempt to include descendants not bearing the family name, 
and states that he has been unable to locate some branches. He begs those who 
can give additional information to make themselves known to him. The book 
is provided with a good index.

Lawrence, Benjamin (of Braintree, Mass.), Moses of Mansfield, Mass., Moses

Some account of Capt. John Frazier and his descendants, with notes on the West 
and Checkley families, by Josiah Granvillb Leach, LL.B. Printed for pri- 
vate circulation by J. B. Llpplncott Co., Philadelphia, 1910. S^ pp. 6+139, 

Only 135 copies of this fine example of the book-maker's art have been printed. 
The reproductions of family portraits and old manuscripts delight the eye, 
while the subject matter demands a careful reading. Capt. John Frazier came 
from Scotland, and sailed from the port of Boston for twenty years previous to 
1775. His sons were merchants of Philadelphia. His descendants are followed 
through male and female lines, and the index reveals at a glance the prominent 
families with whom they are connected. The West genealogy gives the ances- 
try of Anne West, wife of Nalboro Frazier ; the Checkley record the ancestry 
of Sarah Ingraham, wife of Capt. John ; and the Zimmerman diary the ancestry 
of Isabella, wife of Benjamin West Frazier. A chart is inserted giving the 
ancestry of Mrs. William West Frazier, bom Harriet Morgan Harrison. 

Genealogy of some descendants of Dr. Samuel Fuller of the Mayfiovoer, compiled 
by William Hyslop Fuller of Palmer, Mass., to which Is added A supph-

pp. 263, illus. Price ^, postpaid. For sale by William H. Fuller, 23 School 
Street, Palmer, Mass. 

While searching for material for the first volume of a Fuller genealogy, the 
author brought to light much data in regard to the Samuel Fuller family, which 
formed the Imsls of this new volume. Beyond the names and dates of birth of 
children of Fuller daughters, details of the female lines have been omitted. 
After the third generation the sons who had families form heads of fourteen 
groups, arranged in order of seniority of the fathers. The supplement gives 
new information concerning the descendants of Edward Fuller. Both the main 
volume and supplement are indexed, and Mr. Fuller*s painstaking work Is 
another valuable addition to the family history of the Pilgrims. The illustra- 
tions are excellent, two of the most Interesting being the interior and exterior 
views of the church where Dr. Fuller was baptized. 

Matthew Oallaway and his descendants, compiled by Irene Dabxet Callaway, 
1908. 80 unp. Southern Press, Waxahachie, Texas. Price 50 cts. Address 
Author, Waxahachie, Texas. 

" Every family is a history in Itself and even a poem to those who know how 
to search its pages " is one of the quotations scattered through this pamphlet, 
and Miss Gkdlaway has felt its truth so strongly that she has put her own per- 
sonality as well as that of her kinsfolk into their records. Matthew Oallaway 
appeared in Oglethorpe Co., Ga., about 1800. His family went to Alabama, and 
their descendants pushed on to Mississippi, Texas, and even to California. The 
presswork of the book is good, and the plan followed in the genealogical work 
is clear.

This book, giving the collateral ancestry of the grandparents of the author, 
represents, with the Harris and Smith records printed In 1903 and 1906, re- 
spectively, thirty-five years of work, and completes the sketches which the 
author prepared concerning his ancestry. The records given bring the families 
down to the point where they join the Harris or Smith line. There Is no Index 
of names, but two charts to some extent make up the deficiency. The ancestry 
is traced back to the old countries— Scotland, Ireland, and Wales predominating. 
All the Americao branches originated in Pennsylvanta. The names treated In

of his descendants who were ancestors of Abraliam (1773-1851), and the de- 
scendants of the latter, in male and female lines, to the present time. Although

This little book is in the nature of a memorial to the father of the author, 
and traces his ancestry tiirough old Connecticut families, most of whom eml- 
pated from Massachusetts with Hooker, to their progenitors in Wales and 
England. Historical notes in regard to nearly all direct ancestors are given. 
The book is a companion to the Southworth and Humphreville sketches, pub- 
lished in 1909 by the same author.

The original published by Elias Loomis, LL.D. ; revised by Elisha Scott 
Loomis, Ph.D., 1908 [1909]. 4o pp. 839, illus. 

This scholarly production, bound in morocco and finely illustrated, suggests 
a family bible in size. It would be a convenience to patrons of genealogical 
libraries if the index, which occupies two hundred odd pages, referred to pages 
and not to numbers designating persons, which run from 1 to 12,670 through 
eleven generations. Sections in the index give soldiers of the Civil War, college 
graduates, and celebrated people bearing the name. Sixty-two pages are de- 
Yot€d to the history of the family in England. Joseph Loomis (Braintree and 
liondon, Eng.) came to Dorchester, Mass., in 1638, and the next year went to 
Windsor, Conn. It is remarkable that the title to his homestead has never 
passed out of the Loomis name. The estate is now occupied by a school which 
was founded primarily for the benefit of the descendants of Joseph Loomis. 

The Martin family. Descendants of Thomas Martin of Goochland Co., Va., by 
Irene Dabnet Gallawat. 8^ unp. Sentinel Press, Fayetteville, Ark., 1906. 
50 cts. Address Author, Waxahachie, Texas. 

The descendants of Thomas Martin, through his sons, William, Dabney A., 
and Hutson, are recorded. The scarcity of dates and number of diminutive 
names show that information concerning the later generations was obtained by 
correspondence with relatives rather than from official records. The families 
being so widely separated, we appreciate the difficulties under which the author 
labored. Thomas Martin was a soldier of the American Revolution, and his 
descendants fought, some for the Confederacy and some for the Union, during 
the Civil War.

The author of this pamphlet, which is dedicated to his children's children, 
came out of the Civil War with the right arm gone and the left hand maimed ; 
but this has not prevented him from the exercise of his talents for the benefit 
of his community. He ^ an authority on the history of Hancock Co. , and his work 
is concise and shows careful study of records. His ancestors, James and 
Thomas McFarland^ went to Maine before 1768, and both served in the Revo- 
lutionary war. They married sisters, Margaret and Jane Smith of Londonderry, 
K. H. Only children and grandchildren of James are mentioned, except tho

Mrs. Lewis Clephane, of Washington, D. C, thinking that those of Thomat 
Painter's descendants to whom the original manuscript was not accessible would 
prize copies of it, has had it printed for private distribution among them, and lias 
also supplied a limited number of historical societies with the book. The ad- 
ventures of Capt. Painter on sea and land during the Revolution, his confinement 
in the Jersey prison ships, and his subsequent life as a ship master and owner, 
told in his quaint phraseology, are interesting to any reader. He begins his tale 
with a reference to his ancestry, and the second chapter relates entirely to his 
own family. A duurt is appended giving his descent for six generations.

We regret that this handsome volume was received too late for notice in our 
October number. Daniel Perrin, the ^migr6, was probably from the island of 
Jersey, where the name appears as early as 1440. His wife was of French ori- 
gin. They were enrolled as " servants " of Governor Carteret, and allotted land 
on Staten Island. The genealogy traced from this couple, together with a study 
of the name in foreign records, represents years of faithful research. Where 
possible, the generations are brought down to the present. The book is finely 
Illustrated — the frontispiece being a photogravure of Howard Pyle's painting, 
*^ The landing of Governor Philip Carteret," signed by the artist.

bory, and later to Haddam. Arthur removed to Mlddleton and Lyme, Conn. 
The Waterbury and Mlddleton branches of Scovllles remained in Connecticot 
for three or four generations, when many removed to New York and Ohio. The 
East Haddam family moved northward and eastward, even as far as Acadia, and 
to the west into Litchfield Ck>., Conn.

John Lawrence of Groton, Alexander Balcom of Providence, B. I., Rear Admi- 
ral Thomas Greaves of Charlestown, Mass., Banfleld Capron of Barrington and 
Attleborough, Mass., and Pentecost Blacklngton of Marblehead. Miss Leav- 
itf s system is similar to that used in the Bboistbr, and each family record Is 
preceded by a table showing the connection with the Starkey line. The bind-

This large volumexontains the names of some fifteen thousand descendants 
of Andrew Warde. ' The biographical portion of the book contains in narrative 
form the history of several prominent families in the Ward connection, and there 
is a chapter upon the Andrew Ward Association. Andrew Ward is first recorded 
in Watertown, Mass., whence removed to Wethersfield, Conn., 1687, and later 
was a founder of Stamford and Fairfield, Conn. Among his descendants are 
the noted family of Lyman Beecher, Gen. Andrew Ward of Revolutionary fame. 
Gen. Joseph Wheeler, and many others who have left their impress upon the 
history of the United States. The index gives Ward descendants, male and fe- 
male ; males and females, other than Ward ; persons, male and female, allied bj 
marriage. A single number system, with no reference to previous generations, 
makes this elaborate index an absolute necessity.

Alice Street, Keyser, W. Va. 

Joseph Watson was bom in Lancaster, Fa., about 1760, of Scotch ancestry. 
He settled in Cumberbmd Co., Fa., and married wives of Pennsylvania Dutch 
stock. Miss Watson devotes one chapter to him and one each to his sons and 
daughters, thirteen in all, whose descendants are scattered through the middle 
and far West. The author has been fortunate to obtain much information from 
the children of Joseph Watson, only one of whom was living in 1909. In trachig 
the younger generations, if unable to obtahi vital records, she gives the last 
known address of the person or family under consideration. Blank pages are 
left for additional information. 

Williams Genealogy, Wethersfield, Cromwell branch, compiled by Murray Ei>- 
WARD Poole. Press of the Ithaca Journal, 1910. S® pp. 48. 
The first six pages of this pamphlet are devoted to the story of a family of 
farmer's boys in Upper Middleton (Cromwell), Conn., who left home to seek their 
fortunes in northern New York in the early forties, and became successful in 
mercantile, political, philanthropic, and literary pursuits. Josiah, the second 
son, cast the deciding vote which ^ve Central Park to New York, and was on« 
of the original board of trustees of Cornell University. The emigrant ancestoi 
of the family, Thomas Williams, came from Wales to Wethersfield, Conn. The 
scheme of members designating diflierent generations and branches is decidedly 
original ; but the value of the work would be greatly increased if there wert 
an index.

a tribute by Brander Matthews, reprinted from the North Ainerican BevieWy 
two addresses delivered by Bronson Howard, a list of his plays with original 
casts, Bliss Carman's poem, a brief biography by Harry P. Mawson, and a re- 
miniscence by Daniel Frohman. John Ernest Warren, librarian, adds an ar- 
ticle entitled ^' Among his Books," enumerating some of the most precious vol- 
umes bequeathed to the Dramatists' Club. It should be remembered that Bron- 
son Howard, after he had practically retired from play-writing, was the leader 
in bringing about an amendment to the copyright laws making piracy of plays 
a misdemeanor.

Article 1 is the journal of a prominent member of the loyalist colony at Cas- 
tine, who was surgeon and acting chaplain at Fort Gteorge. A reprint of a map 
of the region accompanies the article. Article 2 is part of Capt. Mowat*s ac- 
count of his experiences in America from 1759 to 1783, the orighud of which is 
in the possession of the Maine Historical Society. Article 8 is a reprint of a 
pamphlet printed in Bradford, England, 1840, and is made from the only original 
copy of the narrative known. This publication is very valuable as it brings be- 
fore the American public accounts written from a British standpoint concem- 
ixig the Penobscot expedition of Sal tons tall and Lovell, and the relations exist- 
ing between England and her Indian allies during the war of 1812. 

Proceedings of the Brookline Historical Society at the annual meeting, Jan. 19,

Annual reports, an account of the celebration of the centennial of the birth of 
Abraham Lincoln, and a scholarly essay on Gouvemeur Morris by the late George 
S. Mann, form the literary chapters of the Proceedings. The president's ad- 
dress gives the history of three old houses of Brookline, which were built by 
Joseph Sewall, John and Lewis Tappan, and known as the David Hall Rice 
house (destroyed by fire, 1909), the Phllbrick and Blake houses. Reference is 
made to the preservation of the Devotion house, and general improvements of 
the town in 1909. Personal impressions of Abraham Lincoln by William J. 
Seaver, who knew him in Springfield, HI., in 1856-7, form an interesting paper 
which was delivered at the centennial exercises.

MassachuaettB Bay eetUement, by Henrt Harbison Sfraoub, A.M. Boston, 
Wmiam B. Clark Co., 1910. B^ pp. 39. 

This pamphlet discusses the question of date of settlement of Charlestown, 
Biass., and contends that the town was settled In 1628, possibly before the ar- 
riyal of Endlcott, but at least before the winter of 1626-9. The argument Is 
followed by short biographical sketches of the three brothers, Ralph, Richard, 
and William Sprague. A copy of the records of Charlestown, written by order 
of the town in 1664 by John Greene, after consultation with the oldest residents 
then living, is printed verbatim, and a half-tone facsimile of the agreement 
establishing town govemment in 1634 is inserted. Mr. Sprague claims that 
^* the first settlers of Mlshawam may be said historically to be the real founders 
of the first settlement of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and of the capital at 
Boston, in the year 1628.*'

The ceremonies attending the laying of the cornerstone of the beautiful build-

were participated In by the state govemment, the judiciary and the Grand Lodge

contents of the box deposited therein is given in detail. The book concludes

By means of advertisements in the Hartford Courant and Mercury, from mann- 
Bcrlpts in the author's possession dated 1799, and miscellaneous sources, Mr. 
Andrews has compiled a directory comprising about 16 per cent, of the popula- 
tion of the city of Hartford at that time. A business directory fills about twen- 
ty pages, and is followed by a list of residents of Hartford, town and city, in- 
cluding farmers. Mr. Andrews is secretary of the Vineland Historical Society 
and member of the Connecticut Historical Society.

personal reminiscences, of the men and women of the last one hundred years ; 
historical account of religious societies and Smith Academy. 111. GeneaJogies

town, county and private records, military records, including rolls of honor in 
the Revolution and Civil War, civil and Industrial history skillfully woven to- 
gether, besides portraits of old residents, scenes in Hatfield, England, and in its 
namesake in Massachusetts, make the volume a valuable contribution to the his- 
torical literature of Massachusetts. 

Haverhill town affairs one hundred years ago, compiled by Willlilm F. 

Whitcher, Woodsville, N. H. News, Book and Job Print, 1909. 8o pp. 48. 

The resolves of a little New Hampshire town meeting could do little toward 
preventing the war of 1812, but a perusal of them Imparts the spirit of the 
people, which is expressed as follows : ^' While we . . . wholly . . . disappro- 
bate the policy of our national administration ... we declare . . . our de- 
termination ... to support the Union at all hazard." The tax lists of 1809 
contain 21 'J names ; foot notes explain the identity of many taxpayers of Haver- 
hill, N. H., at that date, and from a genealogical point of view are quite as 
interesting as the town records themselves.

This volume of records covers a period of quietude, the greatest controversy 
being caused by the construction of the ** Mammouth Road," which was begun 
in 1821 and was not settled till 1836. The separation of church and state ms&es 
its impress on the records. The population in 1830 was 887, with no Indication 
that within sixteen years the town would be Incorporated as a city with ten 
thousand Inhabitants. Tax lists form a good share of the book. The frontis- 
piece is a half-tone portrait of General John Stark, 1728-1822. An index of 
Barnes ^Lud a general index add to the value of the publication.

100 Book Notices [Jan. 

This attractive pamphlet recites the history of a chnrch which was established 
in 1808, at the intersection of the old French road to Chautauqua Lake and the 
road from the east to the Western Reserve. For ten years a faithful few kept 
their church organization as best they could without a pastor and without a 
church building. It was re-organized as the Westfleld Church in 1819. The 
first chapter treats of the period from 1808 to 1849, and the second from 1849 
to 1908. Other chapters give accounts of the choir, Sunday-school, and other 
organizations within the church and society. The illustrations are portraits of 
early members, elders, pastors, and others, and pictures of the houses of wor- 
ship occupied at various periods. A list of members of the chnrch is appended.

A history of Company K of the 7th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry in the Civil 
War, compiled by Lt. Col. Jebomk Tourtelotte. 1910. 8° pp. 218. 
This company from Windham Co., Conn., numbering eighty-nine men who were 
in service from 1861 to 1866, lost nine in action, and five in prison. Fifty-six were 
wounded, and twenty-two were captured. The story of experiences in prison 
and on the battlefield, including the siege of Fort Wagner, is compiled from 
letters, diaries, and personal reminiscenses, substantiated by official documents. 
In many instances, says the author, this book does not agree with previous pub- 
lications. The appendix gives the roster of the company, service, date and 
place of birth, and, in case of deceased members, date and place of death ; fol- 
lowed by statistics in regard to the company and an index of names and places, 
all arranged in a manner suitable for reference.

We have come to the time when we all can give to the great commanders of 
both sides the honor they deserve. The soldiers themselves were the first to 
recognize the fact. '*• There Is no purpose in this narrative," says Capt. Wood, 
'* to refiect upon the valor and worth of the Federal soldier or his leaders. . . . 
It was simply a case of Greek meeting Greek, each being worthy of his foe- 
man's steel." The author's style is terse and gn^hlc. The book Is a fair, dis- 
passionate account of the campaigns of Jackson and his brigade as seen by a 
young Confederate officer who participated In them, inspired by admiration for 
his l^uler and belief In the justice of the cause he served.

Only those who have attempted similar work can appreciate the labor which 
the late Mr. Sturtevant, seconded by Mr. Marsh, put into this book. It Is sad 
to think that he did not live to see its completion. Following tributes to Presi- 
dent Lincoln, tiie war governors of Vermont, and the commanding officers of 
the regiment, is a plain statement of the service of the regiment, supplemented 
by short sketches of the lives of the rank and file. Portraits are grouped In 
pairs showing the soldier as he looked In 1862 and 1904. The last pages give 
the roster of the regiment with the present address or date of death of almost 
every man. Space is given to the proceedings of the 18th Vermont Association. 
Good paper, binding and presswork add to the permanent worth of the publi-

120 pp. 244. 

This book is an appeal written by a Christian minister. Taking history as his 
authority, he cites cases where not only Jewish money but Jewish brain have 
helped In the progress of the world's great achievements. The Jews have been 
discoverers. Inventors, financiers, soldiers, philanthropists, and reformers. The 
writer demands for the Jew the square deal— all he asks is justice.

By Chablbi Edwabo Mann, of Maiden, Mats. 

Deloraine Pendbe Cobey, historian of Maiden and universally 
recognized as her first citizen, died at his home in that city Friday, 
May 6, 1910. Mr. Corey was bom in South Maiden, now Everett, 
September 4, 1836, the son of Solomon Pendre and Marthar 
Slonner (Waite) Corey. His ancestry was interesting. He was 
in the seventh generation from William Corey, a freeman of Ports- 
mouth, and made a freeman of Rhode Island and Providence Plan- 
tations May 18, 1658, the line being William,' William,' Benjamin,' 
Benjamin^ (married Prudence, daughter of Solomon and Patience 
(Ray) Pendre), Capt. Solomon' (married Charlotte (Delano) Win- 
sor), Solomon Pencbre,' Deloraine Pendre.^ Through his grandmo- 
ther, Charlotte Delano ( Winsor) Corey, he was descended from John 
and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, the Plymouth Pilgrims, thus : Wil- 
liam* Mullins, John and Priscilla' (Mullins) Alden, William and 
Elizabeth' (Alden) Pabodie, John and Mercy* (Pabodie) Simmons, 
Ebenezer and Mardia' (Simmons) Delano, Joshua' andHopestill(Pe- 
terson) Delano, Samuel and Rhoda^ (Delano) Winsor, Peter' and 
Charlotte (Delano) Winsor, Charlotte Delano' (Winsor) Corey. 
Through his mother, Martha Skinner (Waite) Corey, he was descend- 
ed from Maiden's two Puritan captains, Joseph HUls, who made the 
first compilation of Massachusetts Bay laws (1648), of which but a 
single copy is known to be in existence, and who is supposed to have 
given the name of his English home, Mauldon, to Mr. Corey's native 
town, and John Waite. One of the chapters in Mr. Corey's " History 
of Maiden " is devoted to a discussion of the lives and eminent public 
services of these two men. The maternal line is as follows : Joseph' 
and Rose (Clerke) Hills, John' (son of SamueP) and Mary' (Hills) 
Waite, Joseph' and Mercy (Tuils) Waite, Thomas* and Debor^ 
(Sargeant) Waite, Thomas* and Mary (Sprague) Waite, Thomas' 
and Lydia (Hitchins) Waite, Thomas^ and Hannah (Cheever) 
Waite, MartiKa-Skinner' Waite. Through Hannah (Cheever) 
Waite, Mr. Corey traced his ascent to Rev. Thomas Cheever, the 
first minister of Rumney Marsh (Chelsea^, and his more famous son, 
Ezekiel Cheever, the New England scnoolmaster ; also to Capt. 
Joseph Cheever who led his company at Bunker Hill and Trenton,

another Revolutionary sire having been Peter Winsor, a non-com- 
missioned officer who was at the surrender of Burgojne. Job Lane, 
the builder of the Bell Rock church, where stands Maiden's memo- 
rial park and monument, was an ancestor of Mr. Corey, and he in- 
cluded eight passengers upon the Mayflower in various lines of 

Mr. Corey's childhood and youth were spent in the public schools 
of Maiden. At the age of seventeen he became a book-keeper in 
the hardware business of Flint & Carter, of Boston, and here he 
remained thirteen years, becoming a partner of the concern in 1866, 
which, under the names of Stratton, Orton & Corey, and Stratton, 
Corey & Co., continued the business until the great fire of 1872. 
A new firm, Corey, Brooks & Co., was then formed, from which 
he retired in 1877 on the formation of the Maverick Oil Company, 
of which he soon became treasurer, a position he retained when the 
corporation ceased and the business was merged in and continued 
by the Boston department of the Standard Oil Company. He re- 
tired from active business in 1898. 

Mr. Corey's determination to become an authority upon the history 
of Maiden must have been formed before he left die public schools 
of his birthplace. He wrote the preface to his History, covering 
the period from 1633 to 1785, in 1898, and there said that the work 
of collecting and verifying facts had been carried on for more than 
forty-five years. In 1903 the Vital Records of Maiden were pub- 
lished, having been compiled by a commission of which Mr. Corey 
was chairman. Certain of the earlier record books were in such a 
dilapidated condition that it was necessary to treat them first by the 
Emery process for permanent preservation before they could be used, 
and then it was found that many pages were partially lost or unde- 
cipherable. In this emergency Mr. Corey produced exact copies 
of all the entries, made by himself in the closing year of the Civil 
War with his characteristic care and accuracy. Many dates were 
supplied, as is usual, frt>m the gravestone records in the ancient Bell 
Rock Cemetery ; and here again the work of his earlier years proved 
useful, for with his son Arthur he had spent many toilsome days in 
copying the inscriptions, in frequent instances from stones which 
have since disappeared. It is expected that the Maiden Historical 
Society will publish these inscriptions from Mr. Corey's manuscript. 
Mr. Corey's editing of the Maiden vital records differed from the 
usual style in several respects. He published the records of mar- 
riage intentions in a separate section of the book, while against each 
entry of a birth, marriage or death he placed the figures showing 
the page on which it appears in the original record, each feature, of 
course, adding greatly to the value of the book. These elements ot 
infinite pains to secure accuracy and add to the value of his wo^ 
appear in even a more marked degree in his History. A printed 
collection of the footnotes to that work would be a raluable historic

cal volume in themaelyes, while the narratiye, prepared in his later 
life, after years of study had made him absolutely familiar with his 
subject, is attractive in matter and easy and pure in style. An old 
friend, Daniel L. Milliken, since deceased, wrote of this History in 
1903 : ^ For this work he began collecting materials when about 
sixteen years of age. That a boy of sixteen should step so far out 
of the ordinary track and trend of boyhood thought and action is 
certainly remarkable, and of great significance. We believe it to 
be without a parallel in American biography. Displaying and culti- 
vating the historic spirit thus early, it is easy to understand what 
every page of his completed book so clearly reveals, that the pro- 
duction of that great work was with him, fram first to last, a labor 
of love." Another reviewer said : " The result is a history far 
above the average town history in eveiy respect. He has the in- 
stinct of a true historian, and the book is a noble gift to the public. 
As a picture of life prior to 1785, it is a model.'' A writer in the 
American Historical Review said : ** It is entitled to high rank in 
die department of local history because of its valuable contribution 
to knowledge, and the admirable manner of its execution." 

In the April number of the Reoisteb, 1878, Mr. Corey pub- 
lished a genealogy of the Waite family of Maiden, which he intended 
to be the beginning of a larger history of the descendants of Capt. 
John Wayte. A mass of material for this book remains, and this 
he was intending to arrange and publish at the time of his death. 
His widow feels it to be a sacred duty to have the work completed 
and published. In Drake's History of Middlesex county the history 
of Maiden is by Mr. Corey, and it is both readable and reliable. In 
1891 he published a memorial of his only son, Arthur Deloraine 
Corey, Ph.D., which has gone through three editions. His chapter 
<m ^Joseph Hills and the Massachusetts Laws in 1648 " from the 
Histoiy, was reprinted as a separate pamphlet in 1899. In the 
Ifew England Magazine^ vol. xx, pp. 357-378, appears his stoiy 
**Two Centuries and a Half in Maiden." His '^Memorial of the 
Celebration of the Two Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of the 
Incorporation of the town of Maiden, Mass.," a volume of over 350 
pages, was issued in 1900 ; a memoir of John Ward Dean, A.M., 
originally published in the Rbgisteb, in 1902 ; the vital statistics 
of Maiden in 1902 ; and a memoir of William Blake Trask, A.M., 
rqxrinted from the Register, in 1907. 

The beautiAil Converse Memorial Library in Maiden is Mr. Co- 
rey's monument. For over three decades, from its establishment, 
he was president of the board of trustees of the Maiden public librar 
ly. To it he gave incessant labor, being found more often at his 
desk in the library building in the evening, and at all times during 
his later years, than at any other place. The building was the last 
woriE of the late H. H. Richardson, and is a memorial to Frank 
ESugene Converse, son of the late Hon. Elisha S. Converse, who 

106 Deloraine Pendre Corey [April 

practicallj placed his wealth at the disposal of Mr. Corey to the ex« 
tent that was needed to erect the building, equip it, embellish the 
two art galleries with rare paintings, and liberally endow it for its 
fiiture n^s. This done, Mr. Corey gave his best endeavor to' the 
work of making the library meet the demand of the community for 
which it was established. So great was the appreciation of his value 
imd special knowledge that he was long a member of the Free Pub- 
lic Library Commission of the Commonwealth, holding the office of 
chairman until a few months before his death. 

Mr. Corey never sought elective office but never refused requests 
for public service in other directions. He was a member of the 
boaid of Trustees of Public Reservations and one of the trustees 
section of the American Library Association, taking particular de- 
light in attending the association's annual meetings. He was a life 
member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, a mem- 
ber of the American Antiquarian Society, an honorary member of 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, and the Som- 
erville Historical Society. He was active in the formation of the 
Maiden Historical Society, and was many years its president, declin- 
ing a re-election at the last annual meeting. He took the initiative 
for Maiden's two hundred and fiftieth anniversary celebration and 
was its moving spirit. Upon him, as the best fitted man in eveiy 
way, fell the duty of preparing the inscriptions which were placed 
upon the Bell Bock memorial and similar historic tablets. The 
bowlder which stands near the site of the home of Joseph Hills in 
Maiden square was his gift, and bears a filial tribute to his worthy 

No finer evidence could have been given of the eminent place he 
held in the esteem of his fellow-citizens, nor of the hold he had upon 
their affections, than the request from leading citizens, made upoii 
his completion of thirty years' service as chairman of the public 
library trustees, that he accept a complimentary banquet. Unwil- 
lingly he consented, and hundreds of Maiden citizens, with distin- 
guished guests from abroad, gathered to do him honor. It was a 
tribute such as is given few men in private life under any circum- 

Mr. Corey was innately modest. A conviction of public duty 
would draw him into the open, but he loved rather the quiet of his 
library. His home was a magazine of historic and antiquarian lore, 
and he accumulated one of the best private libraries upon these sub- 
jects in the commonwealth. The walls of his home, as of the art 
galleries of the Converse Memorial library, bear abundant evidence 
of his love for and taste in art, and he was equally devoted to music, 
as all admitted to his fireside can testify. 

On May 11, 1865, Mr. Corey married Isabella, daughter of Dana 
and Isabella (Cowdrey) Holden. Their only child, Arthur Delo- 
raine Corey, graduated from Harvard university, and received the 

1911] Revolutionary Soldiers of York County^ Me. 107 

degree of Hi.D. firom the Royal Friedrich Wilhelm university of 
Berlin, Germany, in 1891. He died in Maiden August 17 of the 
same year. It seemed ever after that the love the stricken parents 
had lavished upon him in life was given to all young people in gen- 
eral, especiaUy to those who needed it most. Within a year of his 
deadly Mr. Corey and his wife joined in meeting the expense of 
remodelling the Young Men's Christian Association building in 
Maiden and fitting up attractive quarters for a boys' department, to 
be a memorial to Arthur Deloraine Corey. Within a few days of his 
death Mr. Corey attended nightly meetings held to raise a large sum 
of money for the work of the same association, making an initial 
gift of many thousands and adding to it firom time to time as sub- 
scriptions li^ged. His last appearance in public was at one of these 
meetings. While a regular attendant at the First Baptist Church in 
Maiden, Mr. Corey was extremely broad in his religious sympathies, 
and though everywhere recogniz^ as representing the finest type of 
the Christian gentleman, supporting all good causes with voice, pen 
and purse, he was in no sense sectarian. 

Mr. Corey was elected a member of the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society in 1863, and signaUy proved his interest in the 
Society and in the Register as a member of the Register Club, 
which for many years guaranteed the expenses of its publication, 
thus sustaining its work at a critical time. His attitude here was 
typical of the man, able, kindly, generous; alert to meet every 
crisis, putting his heart, his time and his means into every worthy 
cause ; willing to labor for years with no reward other than a knowl- 
edge that thereby priceless memoriab of the past were preserved ; 
patient when his work was unappreciated, grateftd but modest when 
recognition came ; bearing his personal sorrows bravely, and meeting 
fisuling health and the summons of the Last Messenger with resig- 
nation — this world can never have too many men like him.

By J^MBS W. Hawbs of New York City 

It has been known that Edmond Hawes, described as a cutler, late of 
London, was among those who shipped about 5 April 1685, to sail from 
Southampton in the ship Jame$ for New England,^ and that he arrived in 
Boston 8 June 1635, after a passage of about five weeks.^ His subsequent 
career is known from the colonial and local records. He was in Duxbury 
in 1637, and was chosen constable there in 1642. In or prior to March 
1645, he removed to Yarmouth, where he was active in public affairs untO 
his death in 1693. He was one of the selectmen and town clerk and 
treasurer for many years, and for many years represented the town in die 
Colony Court He left one son, John (who married Desire, daughter of 
Capt. John Gk)rham and granddaughter of John Howland, the Mayflower 
passenger), also active in public affairs in the town, from whom descended 
the Haweses of Yarmouth, Chatham, and other towns on Cape Cod. 

Nothing, however, was known of his parentage or place of birth until 
the writer recently, with the pecuniary assistance of two other descendants 
of Edmond, Messrs. William T. WardweU and James Anderson Hawes, 
of New York City, employed Mr. Gerald Fothergill of New Wandsworth, 
London, to make investigations.^ 

The records of the Cutlers' Company of London, recently rendered 
accessible, revealed that the emigrant was the son of Edmond Hawes of 
Solihull (a parish about seven miles southeast of Birmingham), Warwick- 
shire, gentleman ; that he bound himself, 14 February 1626-7, to Edmond 
Wamett,^ a citizen and cutler of London, for the term of eight years from 
2 February preceding, and that he was sworn free cutler 9 December 1634.

St. Paul, connty of Essex, dated 21 November 1621, and proved in the 
Prerogative Court of Canterbury 2 April 1 622, gives all his freehold and 
eopyhold estates, subject to an annuity of £5 a year to the testator's sister, 
Anne Morris, to Edmond Hawes, youngest son of Edmond Hawes, of 
Solihull, gentJeman. 

The testator's sister and William Rastall having entered upon the lands 
devised and attempted to suppress the will, Edmond Hawes the younger 
(then 14 years of age), by Edmond Hawes the elder, his father and guar- 
dian, brought a suit in Chancery, 15 May 1622, against Anne Morris and 
WUHam Rastall (an executor of the will), to establish his right, which evi- 
dently resulted in his favor. By deed, dated 12 February 1633-4, he sold 
his right in these estates to Sir Leventhorpe Franche, Knight, for the 
consideration of £250.* The printed parish regbter of Solyhull (Parish 
Register Society, vol. 53) shows the baptisms of Edmond and his brothers 
and sisters, lliey are all styled Mr. or Mrs.y and described as son or 
daughter of Mr. Edmond Hawes of HilMeld or Shelley, the family estates. 
The register also shows the marriages and deaths of certain members of 
the Hawes line. 

The Visitation of Warwickshire made in 1619,' gives the pedigree of 
the ^unily for eight generations down to the emigrant, Edmond (Edmond, 
William, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas). 

The original of this pedigree, signed by Eklmond Hawes, father of the 
emigrant, b in the College of Arms, London. This visitation and Burke's 
General Armory (p. 468) g^ve the arms of the family as sable, a chevron 
argent between thi^ leopards' faces or. For several generations they had 
intermarried with arms-bearing families of Warwickshire and other counties. 

HilMeld Hall was rebuilt by William Hawes, grandfather of the emi- 
grant, in 1576, and the front remains substantially in its original shape 
to-day. Over the front door is the foUowing inscription, containing die 
initials of William Hawes and his wife Ursula : 

W. V. 
Bic hosptteSy in Coelo Oives.^ 

In the parish church is an inscription laudatory of this William. 

Femberton (op. cit. p* 42) gives one more generation than the Visitation 
of Warwickshire, beginning with Thomas Hawes of Shirley, who purchased 
Hillfield about 1311. 

A manuscript in the Bridges collection in the Bodleian Library at Ox- 
ford, attributed to William Belchier of Northamptonshire, reproduces in- 
•criptions existing in the Hawes mansion in Solihull (probably about 1 600 
or earlier), giving the marriage of Thomas Hawes in 1465 to Ann Gres- 
wolde, with the Hawes arms impaling those of Greswolde (argent, a fess 
gules between two greyhounds courant sable), the marriage of Thomas 
Hawes in 1527 to EUzabeth Brome, with the Hawes arms impaling those 
of Brome (sable, on a chevron argent three sprigs of broom slipped vert), 
and the marriage of William Hawes in 1562 to Ursula Colles, with the 
Hawes arms impaling those of Colles (gules, on a chevron argent pellet^ 
four barrulets sable between three lions' heads erased or).

A The Greswoldet sprang from John Greswolde of Kenilworth, Warwickshire. 
Richard Greswolde died before 1412. Thomas Greswelde about 1438 had castody of 
the manor of Solihull under the Crown, and from about 1443 to about 1468 was a 
justice of the peace. (Dugdale, History of Warwickshire, p. 696; Visitation of War- 
wickshire, 1619, p. 61.) 

*The Rainsford (or Raynesford) family were from Lancashire and Oxfordshire. 
Their original arms were argent, a cross sable. (Visitation of Oxfordshire, Harleian 
Society, vol. 6, p. 165; VisiUtion of Warwickshire, p. 48; 3 Miscellanea Genealogica 
et Heraldica, vol. 2, p. 158.) 

J Nicholas Brome, the father of Elizabeth, was lord of the manor of Baddesley 
Clinton. He died in 1517, and was buried in the church there, where there was an 
inscription to his memory. He was Justice of the Peace for several years, and at one 
time Sheriff of Warwick and Leicestershire. The family was an ancient one in 
Warwickshire. His great-grandfather, Robert Brome, was a lawyer. His grand- 
father, John Brome, was member of Parliament for the Borough of Warwick in 1406. 
His father, John Brome, a lawyer, who bought the manor, was Under-treasurer in the 
Exchequer in the reign of Henry VI. (between 1422 and 1461), and held other offices. 
This John Brome was slain in 1^ on the porch of the White Friars* Church, London, 
where he was attending mass, by John Herthill, steward to the Earl of Warwick, in 
a quarrel over a mortgage which Hrome held against Herthill. He was buried in the 
White Friars' Church, and there was a Latin epitaph inscribed on his tombstone.

Thomas who died in 1568, Thomas who died in 1574, William, 
and the latter's son £dmond, are all styled gentlemen in the records 
of their time. 

The name seems originally to have been Hawe ; at any rate it is 
frequently so written in the ancient records, but the emigrant and 
his descendants and his ancestors, at least so far back as his great- 
grandfather Thomas, uniformly wrote it Hawes. The name was 
widely distributed in England in the early part of the 17th century, 
and appears not only in Warwickshire and adjacent counties but 
' also in London and neighboring counties, and elsewhere. 

Besides Edmond, among the early settlers of Massachusetts were 
Edward Hawes, who was in Dedham in 1648 ; Richard Hawes of 
Dorchester, who came in the Truelove in September 1635 ; and 
Robert Hawes of Salem, Wenham, and Roxbury, in which last- 
named town he died in 1666. There is no evidence that these were 
of kin to each other, and they certainly were not nearly related to 
Edmond, although it seems not improbable that Richard was of the 
Warwickshire stock. 

Respecting the emigrant Edmond Hawes, it may be observed that 
Winsor, in his History of Duxbury (p. 81), says the office of con- 
stable was one ^^of high trust and responsibility, and none were 
elected to it but men of good standing." In fact, in early times, 
constables instead of being mere peace officers, as now, had various 
other functions, such as acting as collectors of taxes, as coroners in 
summoning juries of inquest, and when a call was made for military 
duty impressing men for the service. 

Swift in " Old Yarmouth " (p. 79), speaking of the early settlers, 
says : '^ Anthony Thacher, Edmond Hawes, and Richard Sears were 
certainly men of education and social standing in England " ; and 
(p. 81) : " Lawyers were not tolerated in Ae Colony, but con- 
veyances, wills and other legal writings were executed by Anthony 
Thacher, Edmund Hawes and John Miller, according to the 
formulas of English practice.** 

A school existed at Solihull as early as 1560, when the endow- 
ment of certain chantry chapels in the parish church was devoted to 
the salary of a schoolmaster. Mr. Home, a graduate of Oxford 
University, was master during the boyhood of Edmond Hawes, the 
emigrant, who was no doubt educated in this school, where Latin 
at that time would have been a principal element in the curriculum.^

Through the death of William Carver Bates, a member of the Ooancil, the New

lieved in it and in its abinty to accomplish its work, and to its requests for aid he 
cordially responded. He was an especially valuable member of committees, for he 
was ready with practical suggestions in the support of which he was able to enlist the 
active co-operation of his associates. The thorough manner in which he obtained re*

Parkntaok of Gov. Thomas DiTDLEr.—For nearly a century fruitless efforts 
have been made to substantiate the statements of Cotton Mather, that Gov. 
Dudley was bom in Northampton about 1574, son of C^pt. Boger Dudley, and 
that his mother was a kinswoman of Judge NicoUs, although persistent search 
was made in the records of the Dudley and Nicolls families, and among the 
Pells and Pnrefoys, who were connected with the Nicolls family. In the Rrq- 
I8TSB for October, 1895, Mr. H. F. Waters published the will of a John Purefoy, 
1579, which mentioned a Thomas Dudley. (See Rboistbr, vol. 49, p. 507, or 
Waters' Gleanings, p. 1087.) This will was fully annotated by Mr. Dean Dud- 
ley, who furnished an account of the Purefoy family, derived from the Visi- 
tation of Leicestershire and from Nicholls*s History of that county, which 
stated that Mary Purefoy, sister of this testator John Purefoy, married Thomas 
Thome of Tardley, co. Northants, and of their six children ^^ Susanna Thome 
m. Bogers.** That this ^^Bqgers" should be Boger Dudley Is proved by the 
register of Yardley Hastings* which records, 12 Oct. 1576, the baptism of 
Thomas Dudley, son of Boger and Susanna (Thome) Dudley, as has recently 
been made public in vol. 1, p. 98, of the '* Stokes Becords ** (1910). The state- 
ments of Cotton Mather are thus confirmed.

Ancbstby of William Dter.— There are in Abington, Whitman, and East 
Bridgewater, Mass., and elsewhere, many descendants of William Dyer, who 
with his wife Joanna was the earliest settler, in 1699, of that part of Bridge- 
vrater since known as Abington and Whitman. The ancestry of William Dyer 
has been unlmown, while hte wife has been called by some Joanna Chard and by 
others Joanna Blcknell. His relationship to Dea. Thomas Dyer of Weymouth, 
Mass., has seemed probable, but the historians Hobart, Mitchell, Nash, Bev. 
Ebenezer Porter Dyer, Bev. Charles Cummings, and others, searched in vain for 

A short distance west of the railroad station at Whitman, William Dyer built 
his log cabin, near a fine spring of water, and here Christopher, his son, was 
bom in 1701, the first child bom in the town of Abington. He married again, 
April 17, 1712, Mary Whitman, and removed to Weymouth, where his wife died 
September 25, 1725. He died prior to August 15, 1750, when his will was 

Evidence Is now at hand that this Abington pioneer, WUUam Dyer, was a son 
of Christopher, who was the son of William, both early settlers of Sheepscot, 
He., where they were massacred by the Indians during King Phillp*s War, 
1676-1678. Cushman*s History of Sheepscot says : " William Dyer, who had 
been In the region of Saco, was one of three men chosen by the King's com- 
missioners as a Justice of the Peace." The names of William Dyer and of his 
son Christopher are on a recorded list of those who took the oath of allegiance 
at Sheepscot In 1665. Their farms were described In a survey of ^* the demen- 
tions of the town necke," so called, by one Nicholas Manning, a surveyor under 

190 Nate$ [April 

John Ffelmer, who wms an agent for the Dnke of Tork.* Where the Sheepaoot 
BiTer dlYides at the Bomt Islands, and the East Branch with Its deep indent»> 
tions seeks agahi to mhigle its divided waters with the main sweep of the rtrer 
above the faUs, there at the ^^ north ponnt" of the Great or ^^Towne Necke" 
William Dyer bnilt his cabin at the month of the river which still bears hia 
name, and opposite that other neck known as Dyer's Neck to the present day. 
The river and neck are lasting monuments to William Dyer, the pioneer, who 
was the first to lose his life (according to Cushman) from Indian hatred in the 
general massacre when Sheepscot was pillaged and sacked by the Indians in 
1676. ^^ William Dyer was a large, stont man." His death threw his family 
and the colony at Sheepscot into despair. Following his death many of the 
colonists were killed, and the survivors fled in terror to other settlements, bat 
mostly to Boston and vicinity. 

William Dyer had two sons — Christopher, the elder ; John, bom about 164B — 
and a daughter Mary, who married Samuel BoUes. 

Christopher Dyer married first , and had William, John, and Grace 

who married, about 1683, John Allicett, or Ellisett, of Boston; he married sec- 
ondly Buth , and had Mary who married, in 1698, Samuel Talbot of 

Taunton, and Bu^ who married Benjamin Paul of Taunton* and died at Berkley 
January 24, 1776, in the 93d year of her age. The widow Buth Dyer married, 
October 10, 1692, John Hathaway, and died September 11, 1705, aged 65 years. 

At the desertion of the Sheepscot settlement, about 1676, Clulstopher and 
John Dyer went to Scituate and Braintree. August 80, 1682, they joined with 
other survivors of the refugees in a compact made at Boston to reoccupy their 
homes at Sheepscot before September 29, 1688, and the Indian disturbances 
having ceased they returned to their abandoned farms. Here, for a few yeart 
of comparative quiet with the Indians, they prospered until near the close of 
King Philip's War, when Indian hostilities a^n assailed the Sheepscot colony, 
and John Dyer was severely wounded, and was taken by his brother Christopher 
to Fort Pemaquid, fifteen mUes or more, the nearest place, for sm^ad treat- 
ment. About 1688 or 1689 the Indians again attacked and completely broke op 
the Sheepscot settlement. Christopher Dyer, with others, was killed. 

John Dyer, in his deposition dated January 19, 1732-8, says that his father 
William Dyer was killed by the Indians in or about the month of August above 
forty-two years since, and that some few months after the death «of his father, 
viz. in or about the month of December, his eldest brother Christopher waa 
also killed by the Indians ; that Christopher left a son William and other chil- 
dren, said William now residing in Weymouth. Esther Boberts of Boston also 
deposes to the same effect. 

The inhabitants who escaped massacre fied never to return, and Sheepscot 
was deserted for thirty years. 

Buth, the widow of Christopher Dyer, was hi 1692 living with her two 
young daughters, Mary and Buth Dyer, at Braintree, Mass*, where she was 
again married at the age of fifty-two to John Hathaway of Taunton, Mass. The 
two daughters of Christopher and Buth Dyer went with their mother to their 
new home in Taunton, and in time married there. Mary Dyer married Samuel 
Talbot of Taunton hi 1698, and Buth Dyer married Benjamin Paul of TaunUm 
about 1704. A descendant of this Buth Dyer, B. Paul, Esq., a lawyer of 
Minneapolis, Minn., in searching for the previous history of the widow Buth 
Dyer of Braintree, found proof that she was the second wife of Christopher 
Dyer of Sheepscot, and that he had by his first wife a son William, who was 
the first settler at a place called Little Comfort In Bridgewater and Ablngton, 
Mass. Mr. Paul prepared a valuable paper, which he presented early in the last 
decade, concerning the Dyer-Talbot-Paul and other Taunton families, from 
which this paper is largely drawn. The original Is now in the library of the 
Old Colony Historical Society of Taunton, of which Col. Seaver is the secretary. 

John Dyer, the brother of Christopher, fied from Sheepscot to Bralntnee, 
Mass., where he remained for the rest of his life and reared a large family. He 
married first Sarah, and secondly Anna Holbrook. Bev. Samuel NUes, Uie 
minister of Brahitree, refers to him under date of April 23, 1783, thus : *^ This 
day buried John Dyer the aged.** Judge Samuel Sewall also refers to him in 
his diary under date of February 1, 1680-1, as follows : ^^ Last night one Dyer 
of Bralntrey shot an Indian to death as he was breaking his whidow and at-

Hist. Soc. Coll., vol. 6, and SewaU papers, vol. 2, p. 15*.) John Dyer had to 
^ve the Indian's widow six pounds and pay costs, according to the court records 
(Records of the Court of Assistants in Mass. Bay, 1630-1692, vol. 1, p. 188). 
John Dyer In his will speaks of his small estate as gathered mostly by the 
Industry of his wife, ^^ because I have been incapacitated by wounds received 
In the Eastern Wars." 

Hobarf s History of Abington mentions several Dyers, descendants of Wil- 
liam Dyer of Abington, who emigrated to other towns, and that their descend- 
ants were numerous.

ana Dr. Ebenezer Alden Dyer of Whitman, Mass., both of whom are of the 
seventh generation from Wuliam Dyer, the pioneer of Abington.)

By a vote of the Committee on PablioationB the present form of 
Book Notioes will be disoontinaed after this number. As in the 

Sasty only books giyen to the Society will be listed, and in addi- 
on to the ftill tiUe there will appear descriptive remarks when 
it is necessary to mention the scope of the contents. In the con- 
templated form the Book Notices should be of greater use for 
reference, as will be seen by comparison with a similar method 
employed by the Buhlishers^ Weekly. 

(The editor reqoests persons sending books for notice to state, for the information 
of readers, the price of each book, with the amount to be added for postage when sent 
br mail. For the January issue, books should be received by Nov. 1 ; for Aprils by 
Feb. 1 ; for Jti/y, by May I ; and for October^ by July 1.] 

The Alexander LeUers, 1789-1900, with introduction by Marion A. Booos and 
Georob J. Baij>win. Privately printed, Savannah, Ga., 1910. 8« pp. 317, 

These letters were written by the family and descendants of Adam Leopold 
Alexander and his wife, Sarah Hillhouse Gilbert. Those descriptive of life on 
a Georgia plantation and in Savannah early in the nineteenth centnry, experi- 
ences at boarding-school and at college in the fifties, letters written during 
the Civil War, and later those written from far and wide, are all interesting. 
The supplement contains the genealogy of the family, which clahns Dntch and 
Scotch ancestry on one side, and that of Virginia and Connecticut on the other.

This volume, which Is handsomely bound and has many good illustrations, 

contains about four thousand names. The union In these families of Quaker, 

Pilgrim, German. Swiss, and Swedish stock will cause this genealogy to be 

sought by many throughout a large territory. Many biographical sketches are 

given. There Is an index attached of those bearing the names mentioned on 

the title-i»ge, and a complete index Is In preparation. 

Genealogical History of the Call Family in the United States, also biographical 
sketches of members of the family, by Sdceok T. Call. Emlngton, HI., 1908. 
8» pp. 26. 

Various branches of the Call family are traced back to the first settler of the 
name in America, James Call, whose line Is most carefully followed. He was a 
eoldier in the War of the Revolution, being a private in the Vermont Rangers, 
and five of his sons also served during that war. A list of books which contain 
information regarding the Call family in New England and New York forma a 
useful supplement to the pamphlet.

This publication Is devoted mainly to the descendants of William Chase, who 
settled in Roxbury, Mass., 1680. Several other branches of the famUy are men- 
tioned briefly. There is an Ulustrated article In memory of Obedlah Chase, a

This publication deals chiefly with the English branches of a f amUy which 
originated upon the banks of the Deben River in Suffolk, Eng., but considerable 
space is given to those of the name who have emigrated to America. More 
than half of the book consists of quotations from and discussions of ancient 
famUy records (the first mention of the name in England occurring A.D. 1166), 
the descriptions of coats of arms, and a list of wUls in the Court of the Arch- 
deaconry of Sudbury. The volume unfortunately lacks an index.

In the ship Skidd, which anchored in the Dehiware in 1678, were Thomas 
Bevell, Mahlon Stacy and his wife Rebecca Bly. Joshua Ely joined the coloii:f 
in 1683. The ancestry of these immigrants has been carefully studied by Mr. 
D. B. Ely, who has visited their homes in England and consulted records theM 
with quite remarkable results. Ancient coats of arms have been brought to 
light and reproduced among the illustrations of the book; also letters written 
from New Jersey to those in the home land. Names of plantations in Jersey 
have been found to be duplicates of ancestral estates in England. The genei^ 
logical and biographical parts of the volume are well handled. An abstract of 
each chapter and a carefully prepared index add materially to the practical value 
of the work. 

Aaron French and his descendants^ compiled by Chablbs Newton French. 

Chicago, privately printed, 1910. 16« pp. 81. 

This little book records the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchUdren 
of Aaron French, of New Jersey, 1789-1805. Nine other immigrants bearing the 
surname, who arrived in this country previous to 1700, are mentioned and some 
account of them is added. The familv records given are, with few exceptions, 
compiled from unpublished material, from epitaphs, and tradition. Great care 
has been taken to record middle names in full— a commendable feature which 
ought to be more generally followed. 

The Fulham Genealogy , wUh index of names and blanks for records^ by Yolnet 
Sewall Fulham. Burlington, Vt., Free Press Co., 1910. 12<> pp. 291+10, 

This volume gives the record of the descendants of Hon. Francis Fulham, 
who died in Weston, Mass., in 1767. Some space is given to genealogical notes 
on the Fulham family in England, although the connection with the American 
family is not established. The author lays much stress upon family traditions, 
traits of character, and personal resemblances, which he has observed In the 
early and later generations.

4<> pp. 85, illus. 

To Americans who have so long been obliged to content themselves only with 
probabilities in regard to their ancestry beyond the Atlantic, this product of the 
researches of an English scholar Is an evidence of what can be accomplished by 
persistent effort. ^&. Grazebrook has recorded nothing for which he cannot 
give good authority. His knowledge of heraldry has materially aided in gath- 
ering material and explaining obscure records.

The beautiful family life, the stem adherence to principle as exemplified by 
tiie Quaker William Harrison, softened and moulded into more intellecUial 
channels hi the later generations, impresses the reader of this story of a gifted 
Virginia family. It is told in a graceful, attractive style, and we regret that a 
larger edition was not published.

This book is the result of an accumulation of material gathered while pre- 
paring a record of a branch of the Barney family, which, though not bearing 
directly upon the matter in hand, seemed to demand publication. Besides gene- 
alogy, the book contains a roster of the companies of Capt. Isaac Davis and 
Capt. John Hayward, both of Acton; an article upon the Davis monument at

This genealogy is the product of the reunions of the Illinois families whose 
names appear on the title-page. Their progenitors were bom in Germany, 
settled in Maryland in 1770, and later emigrated to Kentucky. Led by a desire 
to rear their children in a free state, their descendants became residents of Ohio, 
Indiana, and Illinois. The book is profusely Illustrated by family portraits.

In his introduction Mr. Munson gives special credit to Bir. Albert C. Mason, 

of Franklin, Mass., who was his coadjutor in the search for material. The 

book is printed as a forerunner of a more extended work upon which the two are 

engaged. The last few pages are given up to records of Robert Monson of the 

Isles of Shoals, and Robert of Scarborough, Me., but no genealogy is printed. 

An effort has been made, so far unsuccessfully, to connect these early New

Samuel* Morse (Moses,* Daniel,* William,' Benjamin,* Anthony^ was bom 
at Preston, Conn., 1746. His sons emimted to the Western Reserve about 
1809 and settled in Wiliiamslleld, Ohio. The family is numerous in that state, 
and many of its children have gone still further west. The value of the book 
would be increased if names appearing in the text more than once received a 
corresponding numl)er of page references in the index.

The name Prouty has been variously spelled, appearing as Proute, Prout, 
Proud, Prowte, etc., in the early records of Scituate, Mass., and in England. 
The name as now spelled did not appear until the beginning of the nineteenth 
oentury. Coincidences of names and dates seem to substantiate the theory that 
Bichard Proute, the emigrant ancestor, originated near Bristol, Kng. Th^ 
genealogy is arranged after the system used in the Reoistbb, and Mr. Pope's 
work is so well known that his name on the title-page is a sufficient guaran^

His son Benjamin was bom at Sudbury May 81, 1640. Three hundred and forty

Cyras Bice was the first settler in that plurt of Deerfleld set off as the town of 
Conway in 1767. He was followed by several of his kinsmen, all descendants 
of Edmund Bice of Wayland, Mass. The genealogical part of the pamphlet, 
which is arranged like the one noticed above, gives the descendants of Cyras, 
Jonas, Joseph, Fhineas, Israel, and Timothy— all residents of Conway. A short 
historical sketch of the town of Conway is given in the introduction. The 
frontispiece is a photogravure of the homest^ of Edmund Bioe in Wayland

Jacob Schoff was one of seven Germans who bought from the town of Lex- 
ington, Mass., its holdings in Dorchester Canada, now Ashbumham. Besides 
the personal history of Schoff and his descendants, the account of the coming 
of the Germans to Massachusetts— an almost unknown phase in its history— fi 
treated at length. From Ashbumham the emigrant went to Franconia, N. H., 
and thence to Maidstone and Brunswick, Vt. There are military records of 
Jacob and his descendants. The genealogy of the male lines is given at length, 
but female lines do not extend beyond one generation.

' The genealogy of the Small family proper occupies less than one third of this 
publication, but the records of the allied families are carefully traced and occu- 
py the rest of the book. These families are Allerton, Hatch, Sawyer, Mitchell, 
Jenney, Cooke, Cushman, Stetson, Chandler, Andrews, Boberts, Pratt, Heard, 
McKenney, Mariner, Dyer, and Talbot. The good sense of author and publisher 
is shown by the presentation of this extended genealogy in three volumes of 
moderate size, rather than in one huge folio. Every page is interesting and 
shows study of both English and early American records.

fdler (Laura C. Spelman), to whom Mrs. Barbour dedicated it, to carry the 

work to completion. The volume is not a collection of names and dates mer^, 

but a family history full of character.

John Swasey and his two sons, Joseph and John, Jr., came to America and 
settled in Salem, Mass., as early as 1632. Joseph remained in Salem, but his 
fMher and brother removed to Southold, L. I., being driven from Salem on ao- 
oount of their Quaker principles. The Salem branch has retained the old spell- 
ing of the name, but John, Jr., adopted Swayze as the spelling of his name. 
His descendants have adopted Swezey, and in some branches Swayzie. The phin 
of this genealogy is plain and easy to follow. Pictures of old homesteads of the 
second and third generations show the early types of dwellings in New England 
and the middle states.

This beautiful book, printed on antique laid paper and bound in crimson with

ington, Lee, Beade, Prescott, Taylor, Roosevelt, Saltonstall, Fauntleroy, 0*NeiL 
Robinson, Johnston, and Morgan. The chapters on knighthood, heraldry, and 
ancient abbeys are instructive and interesting; the whole book proves the lite-

JULY, 1911 


By William T. B. Martin, L.H.D., of Brooklme 

In hifl delightful story* of ''An Old New Englander"— a filial 
tribute to the memory of hie honored father the late Col. Almon D. 
Hodges, whose name he bore — ^Almon Danforth Hodges, Jr., tells 
us that his ancestors in New England were all of English stock. 
In the Hodges Genealogy, t his direct descent is traced from William 
Hodges, the first known member of the tribe, who appeared at 
Taunton, Mass., in 1643, and who married Mary Andrews of 
Taunton about 1649. But in the collateral lines of his ancestry 
appear so many illustrious names of men who have left a lasting 
impress on Massachusetts history, that we cannot do better than 
quote his own account of his forbears, from the volume cited : 

" Among them of course were John and Priscilla Alden of the May- 
flower. There were also ministers, seven in number, viz : — James Allen, 
Oxford graduate, ejected in 1660 from the English pulpit, minister of the 
First Church of Boston for forty-two years, and one of the wealthiest res- 
idents of Boston in his day ; Samuel Danforth, member of the second 
class which was graduated at Harvard College, pastor of the First Church 
of Roxbury from 1650 to 1671, colleague of the Apostle Eliot, astronomer, 
mathematician, and poet; Samuel Danforth, son of the last, a Harvard 
graduate of the Class of 1 683, minister for forty years at Taunton, Mass., 
where he acquired ' an unbounded influence ' over his townsmen, and where 
he was also ^ the principal, if not the only, physician and lawyer ' ; John 
Mayo, graduate of an English university, probably Oxford, minister at 
Barnstable and at Eastham, Mass., and then for seventeen years, of the 
Second Church of Boston ; Nicholas Street, probably graduate of Oxford, 
minister at Taunton from 1638 to 1659, and ^en at New Haven ; William 
Tompson, Oxford graduate, driven from ministerial labors in Lancashire 
over to America, where he became minister of the First Church at Brain- 
tree, — a rather gentle character much tinged with melancholy ; and John 
Wilson, whose father was a clergyman, and whose grand-uncle was Edmund 
Grindall, Queen Elizabeth's Puritan Archbishop of Canterbury. Wilson 
was a graduate of Cambridge University, chaplain and preacher for several 
years in England, and then the militant first minister of the First Church

in Boston from 1630 until his death in 1667. Elders and deacons of 
churches, captains of military companies, selectmen of towns, and holders 
of other prominent positions were exceedingly plentiful It was a Yigor- 
ous, Grod-fearing stock in all its branches." 

Two lines of the Hodges family— one known as the Salem branch 
and the other as the Taunton branch — are traced in the ^ Genealo- 
gical Record of the Hodges Family in New England," cited above. 
The first is given somewhat briefly, but the second or Taunton branch 
very fully. The Salem branch descended from George, who died 
there in 1709, and who, by a family tradition preserved in both 
branches, but for which no documentary evidence has yet been 
found, was a nephew of William, the head of the Taunton branch. 

William,' bom in England, may have been the one of that name 
who first appears in the Salem records as one of the jury at a Court 
held there on March 27, 1638. K this be true, he did not long 
remain there, but went to Taunton soon after its purchase by the 
first proprietors, where his name is the second on the list of its early- 
settlers, made out by the town clerk, John Wilbore. His first 
recorded appearance there is in August, 1643, on the list of males 
between the ages of 16 and 60, able to bear arms. He wa3 pro- 
pounded fireeman June 6, 1649, and admitted freeman June 5, 1651, 
on which date he was appointed a constable. He was one of the 
original stockholders of the first Taunton Iron Works, " subscribing 
£20 for a whole share." He married Mary, daughter of Henry and 
Mary Andrews of Taunton, and was probably still a comparatively 
young man when he died there Apnl 2, 1654. The inventory of 
his estate shows that he held considerable property. 

His son, Henry,* was captain of the Taunton military company, a 
deacon and presiding elder in the church, and held many of the 
highest offices in the gift of his fellow-citizens. 

His son, Joseph,' was a major in Col. Sylvester Richmond's regi- 
ment in the French War, took part in the siege and capture of 
Louisburg in 1745, and died fi'om wounds or sickness on his journey 

His son, Captain Jonathan,* settled in Norton, where he was a 
farmer and clotiiier. He was ensign of the First Norton company 
in 1756, ^Captain-Lieutenant" in 1763, and probably a full cap- 
tain not long after, as he is styled captain, on the town records. It 
seems probable that, like his father, he served in the French wars, 
though no record of such service has been found. 

His son, Captain Jonathan,* " a man of good substance and of 
sober life and conversation," commanded the Norton company on 
the west side, from 1798 to 1801. He. served several enlistments 
in the Continental army, during the Revolution, and was in Capt. 
Hayward*s company at West Point, at the time of Arnold's treach- 
ery. He was an assessor at Norton 1799-1801, and a selectman 
1803-6, but declined other high positions. 

1911] Almon DanfoHh Hodges^ Jr. 209 

His flon, Col. Almon D. Hodges/ of Norton, Providence and 
Boxborj, wag president of the Washington Bank in Boston , firom 
1850 until his death in 1878 ; a life member of the New England 
Historic Crenealogical Society, and its president in 1859. He was 
one of the founders of the Boston City Guards in 1821 ; for five 
years colonel of the 2d Rhode Island Begiment (1828-1833), and 
later colonel of the Providence Horse Guards, resigning in 1844, 
when he removed to Roxbury. In 1847 he was elected brigadier- 
general of the Boston Brigade, but declined the honor. With such 
a military record behind lum, we are not surprised to find that four 
of his sons — all who could pass the physical examination — were in 
the Union Army and Navy during the Civil War, and that two of 
them died in the service. 

Almon Danforth,Vr., the sixth son of Col. Almon Danforth' and 
Martha (Comstock) Hodges, was bom July 16, 1843, in Provi- 
dence, R. I. He was educated at private schools in Providence 
and Roxbury, fitted for college at the Roxbury Latin School, and 
entered Harvard in 1860, where he graduated in 1864 and, received 
the Master's degree in 1867. While a student there he enlisted as 
a pnvate in Company G, of the 44th Massachusetts Infantry, and 
was mustered September 12, 1862; was with his regiment in the 
siege of Washington, N. C, and was discharged in July, 1863, on 
account of sickness. On July 16, 1864, he was elected and com- 
missioned a lieutenant in the 42d Massachusetts Infantry, and hon- 
orably discharged by reason of the expiration of term of service 
November 11, 1864. He served in various capacities, by detail, 
acting as quartermaster, acting assistant adjutant general on the staff* 
of the Provost Marshal General, Col. H. H. Wells, and indeed 
in about every other position which a lieutenant can fill. 

Before leaving the service he was offered a position with rank of 
first lieutenant in the regular army, in a specif cavalry troop which 
it was proposed to raise by selection firom the men and officers in 
the field ; but as Congress failed to authorize the formation of the 
coips, he had not the opportunity to accept. 

On his return to civil life he entered the Lawrence Scientific School 
of Harvard University, " where at the yearly examination he man- 
aged to seciu^ the first place in his class." In August, 1865, he 
sailed for Europe, and entered the Royal Saxon Mining Academy 
at Freiburg, Saxony, where he remaioed until July, 1868, pursu- 
ing the study of mining engineering. After completing his course 
th^ he made a mining and metallurgical tour through Bohemia, 
Silesia, Russia, the Hartz, the Rhioe Provinces, Belgium, France, 
England, Scotland, and Wales, returning to the United States in 
October, 1868. He spent the next nine months in Boston, doing 
some work in the literature of his profession, and then travelled 
through the chief mining districts of Colorado, Utah, and Nevada, 
reaching San Francisco in September, 1869. While residing there 

210 Almon Dan/orth Hodges^ Jr. [July 

he was for about eighteen months the editor of the San Frandsoo 
Mining and Scientific Press^ which position he resigned to enter 
into the more practical exercise of his profession. 

From the Secretary's Report of the Class of 1864, to which we 
are indebted for material freely used in the preparation of this paper, 
we quote the following : 

" Although during his studies in Grermany he had worked in every posi- 
tion, from that of common miner to the higher grades, yet, as the popular 
demand at the time was for ' practical ' and not * £eoreti(^ ' men, it seemed 
advisable to commence at the bottom of the ladder. He therefore began 
again as common laborer (at $3.00 per day of twelve hours) and worked 
up through all the grades to assayer and then superintendent. This oc- 
cupied eight and cue-half years of continuous labor — untilJanuary, 1880 — 
and included mining and the metellurgical treatment of gold, silver, lead^ 
copper, nickel and cobalt ores, the manufacture of sulphuric acid, blue- 
stone, copperas and borax, and the refining of the precious metals, where- 
by an extensive practical experience was gained in California and Nevada. 
Such experience necessarily included active political work at times, on the 
part of those holding important mining positions. He never held any po- 
litical office (except in a nominating convention), and, although laboring 
under the disadvantage of being an Independent, never lost but one. fight 
of the many in which he engag^. 

" Among his more strictly professional victories, he counts the getting 
of $60,000 to $100,000 net profits for his compan}', from the treatment of 
tailings which assayed only $5.00 per ton, at a time when every other sim- 
ilar establishment in Nevada had failed ; and in finding a successful method 
of refining the very base bullion produced on the Comstock, which previ- 
ously, on account of the very high percentage of copper, had defied all 
efforts to refine it on the spot, or to refine it at all widiout mixing it with 
other material in order to reduce the proportion of copper.* The refinery 
which he built for his process in 1878, at the Omega Mill, near Virginia 
City, Nevada, under a contract with the Bonanza firm, was in successful 
operation at last accounts." 

This same year, in his capacity of Superintendent of the mills of 
the Oroya Railroad and Cerro de Pasco Mining Company of Peru, 
he superintended the construction, at San Francisco, of an 80-stamp 
silver mill, the largest and best work of the kind ever built at one 
time up to that date. After its completion and shipment he went 
to Peru and visited the Cerro de Pasco and other mining districts, 
but the war with Chili putting a stop to all work in Peru, he returned 
to the United States in January, 1880. 

'< He now took up the branch of Consulting and Reporting Mining En- 
gineering, and was engaged in examining and opening mining properties 
in various States, and in Mexico. This occupied his time for the next two 
years and a half, during which period he made his head-quarters in San 
Francisco, where however, he spent but a portion of his time.'* 

* This process is fallv described in the Transactions American Institute of Mining 
Engineers, vol. ziv (1886). 

1911] Almon Danforth Hodges^ Jr. 211 

On July IO9 1882, he married Bertha Louisa, daughter of Wal- 
demar Robert and Mary Amelia Louisa (von Schoemann) Bernard, 
bom August 12, 1863, in San Francisco. Mrs. Hodges was a very 
attractive lady, sweet and womanly in her ways, of exquisite taste 
in dress, and of infinite tact. But '* the burdens which she willingly 
took upon her young shoulders were too great for her strength,'' and 
she died at Auburn, Cal., on May 14, 1884, after a brief but happy 
married life of less than two years, leaving one son, Frederick 
Hodges, bom June 17, 1883. The first six months after his mar- 
riage was spent in a visit to his friends in the eastern States, and he 
then returned to San Francisco, planning to resume his practice as 
an engineer ; but the death of his wife induced him to retire ft'om 
the active duties of his profession, and he returned to Boston with 
his son, intending to make his ftiture home in or near that city. 

While still reftising to engage in general practice, the urgency of 
some of his friends and former clients, aided by a natural restless- 
ness, led him to make two professional toiurs to Peru, each lasting 
about a year. From June, 1886, to May, 1887, as chief of the 
Cerro de Pasco Mining Company, he coi\,ducted in behalf of a very 
powerful New York syndicate the examination of the Cerro de Pasco 
mining district, the most extensive and expensive mining examina- 
tion ever made. An accoimt of this work is given in the Transac- 
tions of the American Institute of Mining Engineers (vol. xvi : 
1888), in a paper entitled " Notes on the Topography and Geology 
of the Cerro de Pasco, Pem." In 1888, as chief of the Nueva 
Comision Minera, among other matters, he examined and reported 
on the Nueva California Placer Claim, Pern, which, being over 41 
square miles in area, and 5,000 feet deep (from 10,500 to -15,500 
feet above sea level), is the largest hydraulic claim in the world. 
He returned from this remarkable work in May, 1889. Some years 
later he went again to South America as an expert engineer, to en- 
gage in similar duty, which was, we believe, the last important labor 
of that character in which he was employed. 

In the following years he gave much of his time to the compila- 
tion and publication of the third edition of the Hodges family gene- 
alogy, and to tracing various collateral lines of his ancestry. His 
principal literary work is contained in various mining reports, numer- 
ous articles on mining and metallurgy, which have chiefly appeared 
in the Mining and Scientific Press of San Francisco, the Engi- 
neering and Mining Journal of New York, and the Transactions 
of the American Institute of Mining Engineers. He was secretary 
of several professional societies of engineers, vice-president of the 
California Civil Service Association, and acting assistant adjutant 
general of the Department of California G. A. R. He was also a 
member of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, Massachusetts 
Commandery ; of the New England Historic Genealogical Society

since 1890, serving on its Council ; and of the Union Club of Bos- 
ton for the last twenty years. 

To those who were privileged to be numbered among the closer 
friends of Captain Hodges, it was a pleasure to listen to his remi- 
niscences of some of his exciting experiences during the Civil War, 
on the rare occasions when he could be persuaded to relate them. 
Decided in his convictions, his position on the questions of the day 
was never a doubtful one ; yet he was always considerate of the 
opinions of those with whom he might diflfer. Loyal in his friend- 
ships, eminent in his profession, a wise counsellor, his memory will 
always be cherished as that of a brave and gallant soldier, and a 
courteous gentleman. 

He died in Roxbury on Monday, November 7, 1910, the result of 
a stroke of apoplexy, and his funeral was attended from St. James's 
Church on the following Wednesday. 

OF DOVER, N. H., 1633 

Edited by Johk Soi.lb8» A.M., of Dover, K. H. 

John* Dam, the second deacon of the First Church in Dover, N. H., 
was bom in England about 1610. He came to Dover with Capt. Thomas 
Wiggins's company in 1633, which company took possession of Edward 
Hilton's grant and commenc^ the settlement on Dover Neck, where the 
first meeting-house was built of logs that year, a few rods southwest of 
where the second meeting-house was built twenty years later. John Hall 
was the first deacon, and at his death in 1 675 John Dam was elected to 
succeed him. In a petition to the governor by the inhabitants of Dover in 
1689, John Dam and Nicholas Dam are among the signers. No further 
mention of Nicholas has been found. John Dam received valuable grants 
of land from, and held high official positions in the town. His will, dated 
19 May 1687, was proved 23 Mar. 1693-4. 

John Dam married, date not known, Elizabeth Pomfbet, daughter 
of William, for many years town clerk of Dover.

the town and provincial records John Dam is called sergeant. He 
was an officer of the militia, and did service in the Indian wars. 
He resided in that part of Dover called Bloody Point, now New- 
ington, settling upon a grant of land his father had received on the 
east shore of Little Bay, now known as Dame's Point, where sev- 
eral generations of the Dam family were afterwards bom. The

Original Pbopristors of GalliopoliSi Ohio 

, Following is a copy of a document accomMmying the retnmfi of a sarrey 
mnd partition of lands in Ohio found in the GenenI Land Office, Drafting 
Division, Washington, D. C, while this writing was in preparation* The 
document is a ms. letter folded and stitched in a leather book of field notes 
bearing this inscription stamped on the cpyer : 

A Survey of the Tract of Land 
Granted by Act of Congress 
to the French Inhabitants 
at Gallipolis. 

List of Actual Settlers 6bc. 
Rufus Putnam's Letter, dated 
12th May 1796« 

Superscription on the letter : Oliyer Woloott, Esquire, Secretary of the 
Treasury of the United States. 
Sir Marietta May 12th 1796 

By the papers herewith enclosed you will perceive that the Lands pro- 
posed by the Act of Congress of the Third of March 1795 to be granted 
to the French inhabitants of Gallioppolis, are surveyed and assigned to the 
•everal persons entitled thereto (as I trust) agreeably to the intention of 
the afore-mentioned act, and your instructions of the Twenty-ninth of 
September 1795. 

Mr Martin^^ arrived at Gklliopolis the Second of November and within 
m few days after commenced his survey; which which he completed as 
toon as could be expected, but from an ill state of health, as he informs 
me, he was not able to make the returns before the 25ih ult On re- 
dveing them I proceeded to Galliopolis, as soon as I could with conven- 
ience, and the several lots were assigned to individuals on the Third in- 
stant in maner certified in the list of Drafts, and I beleave the whole 
business has been conducted to the satisfaction of all concerned. 

Mr Martin states the distence run in executing this survey to be 125 
mOes 72 chains & 98 links, and the time neceuirily employed in mak- 
ing duplicate plans & certificates 84 days. My agreement with Mr Mar^ 
tin was to execute the survey at '' the rate of three Dollars permile for 
every nule actually run including the pay of assistents and aU expense 
of the survey And for the makeing Duplicate Plans with Certificate of the 
Courses Distances and boundaries ; two dollars per day for the necessary 
time. I have furnished Mr Martin with a certificate of the compensation 
contracted for, also that he has executed the surveys agreeably to the Act 
of Congress and returned Duplicate Plans Certificates Ac, to me: but 
have referred him to the Treasury Department for auditing his accounts 
which I presume was your expectation 

I am with great respect & esteam 
Sir Your obedient servant

252 James Bourne Ayer [Jt>fy 


By Ma&t a. Rovsm amibrb of Boxbury, Mass. 

James Bourne Ater waa bom in Boston January 6, 1849. 
His father. Dr. James Ajer, a graduate of Bowdoin College in the 
class of 1834, had lived for many years in the yicinity of Newfield, 
Maine, where he had followed in his father's footsteps in the prac- 
tise of medicine. As the field, however, proved but limited, Dr. 
Ayer had removed to a more remunerative district on Cape Cod, 
where he had first settled at Monument, and later at Sandwich. 
This proved a happy move, and resulted before long in the build- 
ing up of a thriving practise. 

Among his patients at Monument was Martha, daughter of Ben- 
jamin Bourne, who subsequently became his wife. Throu^ her 
his grandchildren are able to trace their descent from Eichard 
Bourne, the missionary who labored for many years among the 
Mashpee Indians. 

Dr. Ayer had an elder brother, J. CuUen Ayer, who was prac- 
tising medicine at the time in Boston. His sudden death in 1846, 
just at the opening of what appeared to be a brilliant future, waaan 
inducement for his brother to remove from Sandwich and take up 
his practise. It was not long before we find the young couple set- 
tled on Hanover Street at the old North End, where in 1849 a son, 
James Bourne Ayer, the subject of this memoir, was bom to them. 
The following year another son, Frederick Bourne Ayer, was bom, 
but died when only a little over two years old. 

A few years later the husband was forced to sustain an even 
greater loss in the death of his young wife at the early age of 
thirty-four. Although Mrs. Storms, a sister of his first wife, whom 
Dr. Ayer subsequently married, came to preside over his household, 
the little boy never entirely forgot his own mother, whom in later 
years he was wont to refer to in words of reverence and affection. As 
no children were bom of this second marriage, the boy's bringing 
up was practically that of an only child. He led a quiet life, and 
was much thrown upon the companionship of his father, for whom 
he had the greatest reverence. 

From 1856 to 1861 he attended the Eliot School, which he left 
for the Boston Latin School. All the records seen of him show that 
he was a good boy and stood well in his classes. At one time he 
received a Franklin medal, an award for good conduct. At the 
age of sixteen he entered Harvard College in the class of 1869, and 
the year following his graduation began his work at the Harvard 
Medical School. 

In further pursuit of medical knowledge the young physician 
went abroad for several years, where he also leamed the German Ian- 

1911] James Bourne Ayer 253 

gnage, which proved of value to him throughout his life. It was 
during these foreign wanderings that he first made the acquaintance 
of Mary E. Farwell, daughter of Nathaniel Whittemore Farwell of 
Lewiston, Maine. On his return to Boston in 1875 the renewal 
of this acquaintance resulted in their marriage on April 4, 1877. 

Dr. Ayer, Senior, who at this time was living at 6 Hancock 
Street, vacated in favor of his son, and removed to Boylston Street, 
then nearer the medical centre of the city. Here on Beacon Hill 
the young couple settled, and Dr. Ayer first entered upon the prac- 
tise of m^cine. A few years later he removed to 53 Mt. Vernon 
Street, where he lived until his removal in 1894 to 518 Beacon 

Dr. Ayer led a busy, active life, broken only by occasional 
trips to Europe, the only form of vacation that ever held any charm 
for him. For many years he was busy with private practise, but 
later other phases of the profession absorbed more of his time. Be- 
sides the contribution of articles to medical journals, he acted as 
councillor of the Massachusetts Medical Society for many years, 
and for five years was one of the censors. When it was proposed 
to erect the new Medical Library in the Fenway he was appointed 
treasurer. In 1906 he also acted as treasurer of the committee 
chosen to entertain the American Medical Association. 

The position he held on the State Board of Insanity from 1902 
to 1907 took up much of his time, and during the last few years of 
his life the research work he caused to have carried on in relation 
to arterio-sclerosis proved of great interest to him. 

He had other interests aside from the profession. For many 
years he was a constant attendant at Mt. Vernon Church, and he 
numbered one of the former pastors. Rev. Samuel E. Herrick, as 
his father had before him, among his most intimate friends. 

His chief diversion of late years was his increasing interest in 
early Boston history, in connection with which hobby he gradually 
accumulated a collection of early maps and views of the city. He 
collected a mass of material relating to the treatment of the sick and 
insane in colonial days, which he hoped some day to put in book 
form. The constant changes in the Fenway also greatly interested 
him, and during the last year of his life he was endeavoring to col- 
lect views showing the development in this particular part of the 
city. He was fond of tracing the history and expansion of the 
church in the colonies, and in his library of Americana rtre to be 
found many sermons preached in olden days by Cotton Mather and 
other New England divines. 

Dr. Ayer was a member of the Bostonian Society, the Society of 
Colonial Wars, the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, and the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society, on the Council of which he 
served in 1908 and 1909. He often said that this love of early 

254 Revolutionai*y Soldiers of York County ^ Me. [ J«ly 

New England history was to be the absorbing interest of his old age, 
but fate decreed otherwise. 

For a year or two before his deHth he had been far from well, 
although able to be out almost daily. On the fourteenth of May, 
1910, he died peacefully, at the age of sixty-one, and was buried 
in the family lot at Mt. Auburn, near the father he loved so well. 
Dr, Ayer is survived by his widow, two daughters, Mrs. John E. 
Kousmaniere (Mary Farwell Ayer), and Elizabeth Ayer, and two 
sons, Nathaniel F. and James B. Ayer.

1911] Origin and Development of Conveyancing 265 


B7 Hon. William T. A. Fttzobrald, Register of Deeds for Suffolk County, 


In the beginning of the world the Creator gave to man " dominion over 
all the earth, and over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and 
over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." The earth, there- 
fore, and all things in it became the general property of mankind, and 
while the earth continued practically bare of inhabitants each person took 
what land he required for his immediate use, and while he occupied it he 
acquired a sort of transient property therein, but he had no permanent in- 
terest in it, and when he ceased to occupy i^ his neighbor was free to use 
it. In other words, his right of possession expired when his actual occu- 
pancy ceased. 

There was no need of conveyancers in those days. The earth was owned 
in common by all the people. 

But when the increase and multiplication of the race began in earnest, 
it became necessary to establish a more permanent dominion in property, 
both real and personal, in order to insure the peace and comfort of society ; 
because no man would exert himself to bmld a house and furnish it, or cul- 
tivate a farm or raise live stock, if, when he walked out, any stranger might 
come in and occupy his house or take his crops or kill his stock. It there- 
fore became the custom that a man who occupied land, tilled the soil, and 
built a house, was given a right of property therein. In the primitive 
days men lived in tents, and when one wanted to move he simply folded up 
his tent and moved away, and pitched it again where his fancy suited him ; 
but when a right of property was given in lands and buildings, tents and 
huts gave way to permanent abodes, and villages and towns came into ex- 

It was found that a house or farm which no longer suited the tastes or 
purposes of its owner might be desired by his neighbor, who was willing to 
exchange some valuable equivalent therefor, and a traffic in land grew up. 
This transfer or conveyance could be considered either as a continuance of 
the original possession or right of property, or as an abandonment by the 
owner and an immediately succeeding occupancy by the new proprietor. 

But no owner had any right to make a transfer beyond the term of his own 
life. After the death of the occupant the next immediate occupant could 
acquire a title in the property of the deceased, but inasmuch as the adop- 
tion of such a system would be likely to cause a grand rush to seize a man's 
property immediately upon his death, the presumption arose that a man's 
children or his nearest relatives were with him at his death and construc- 
tively became the next immediate occupants, and this presumption or cus- 
tom gradually ripened into law. If the occupant of the land had no children 
or relatives, his servants bom in the house were deemed the next immediate 
occupants and became his heirs. 

The right to transfer real property by will was not established until 
many years after inheritances were recognized, but at length it was found 
that the strict rule of inheritance made heirs obstinate and independent and

listless, and also resulted in defrauding creditors of their debts. Conse- 
quently statutes were adopted giving land owners the right to dispose of 
their property by will. The Englbh Statute of Wills, enacted in 1540, 
allowed freeholders to devise all lands held in free and common socage, and 
two-thirds of their lands held by knight service tenure. One who held 
land by knight service was under the obligation to render military service 
to the king, while those who held under the tenure of free and common 
socage were expected to yield a part of the profits of the land to the supe- 
rior lord. The grants that were made by ^e^ king to the American colo- 
nists provided that the lands should be held in free and common socage. A 
statute passed in the reign of Charles II abolbhed the tenure of knight 
service, and thereupon all freehold estates could be conveyed by will. 

The earliest well-defined system of conveying or transferring real prop- 
erty in England was introduced by William the Conqueror after his invasion 
of England in the year 1066. The conveyance was called a feoffment. It 
was a very solemn and public ceremony, supposed to be easily remembered 
and provcwi. Every feoffment to be effective was accompanied by what is 
known as " livery of seisin." The livery of seisin, or delivery of posses- 
sion, was conducted as follows : the feoffor, that is the grantor, together 
with the feoffee, entered upon the land or house to be transferred, and 
there in the presence of witnesses declared thejconditions of the transfer. 
The feoffor then took a handful of earth, or a twig or bough from the land, 
and delivered it to the feoffee with appropriate words expressing his inten- 
tion to convey the premises, or sometimes, if the subject of the sale was 
simply a house, the knocker or latch of the front door was given by the 
feoffor to the feoffee, who entered the house alone, shut the door, then 
opened it and let in the witnesses and others. If there were several par- 
cels of land in one county to be sold, livery of seisin of one parcel would 
answer for the whole ; but if there were several parcels located in different 
counties, there would have to be as many ceremonies of livery of seisin as 
there were counties. This form of livery of seisin was called livery of 
seisin in deed or in fact. There was also a livery of seisin in law which 
was not made on the land to be conveyed, but near to it or in sight of it 
If the feoffor was afraid to enter on the land because, perhaps, he feared 
bodily harm from a hostile occupant, he would approach as near the land 
as he dared, and pointing it out to the feoffee would say, " I give you yon- 
der land, enter and take possession ; " then if the feoffee entered upon the 
land during the lifetime of the feoffor it was a good livery of seisin, other- 
wise not, unless the feoffee by reason of fear did not dare to enter, in which 
event he was required to go as near the land as he dared, yearly, and make 
his claim. 

Title under livery of seisin was said to pass by '< transmutation of pos- 
session.*' Under the feudal system all lands were held under the favor of 
the king, who made grants to his vassals, who in turn gave a certain part 
of their holdings to their vassals, and so on. Under this system the occu- 
pant of land could not transfer it without the consent of his immediate 
lord. Gradually it became apparent that the interest of the country would 
be better served if the transfer of real property was free and unrestrained, 
but it took time to bring about this result. 

In the reign of King Henry I a man was allowed to dispose of land 
which he himself had purchased, but he was not allowed to sell so much of 
it that he might disinherit his children. A statute passed in the year 1290 
(Quia Emptores) allowed all persons to sell their lands at their discretion.

excepting those lords who held their lands immediately from the king, and 
even these tenants were relieved of this restriction in the reign of Edward 
III upon the payment of a fine to the king. These fines were abolished in 
the reign of King Charles II. 

CJonveyances were not recorded in England until after the Statute of 
Uses, passed in the 27th year of the reign of Henry VIII, 1536. The 
Statute of Enrollments was passed by the same Parliament, and required 
all contracts of bargain and sale of lands to be in writing and enrolled 
within six months after their -delivery, but people still desir^ to avoid pub- 
licity in the purchase and sale of lands, and contracts in writing for the* 
sale of land were not generally adopted until the Statute of Frauds was 
passed in 1676, which provided that no contract for the sale of lands, tene- 
ments, or hereditaments should be valid unless the same, or some note or 
memorandum thereof, was in writing signed by the party to be charged 
therewith, or by some person thereimto duly authorized. Even then, im- 
pelled by this desire to prevent publicity. Sir Francis Moore resort^ to 
the strategy of making a bargain and sale or lease for a year, which it was 
not necessary to record, and then executing a release to ^e bargainee, 
which consimimated the seisin in the latter. This form of transfer came to 
be known as a lease and release, and was adopted as the most common 
method of conveyancing in England until very recent times. 

When it became common in England to transfer land by a deed in 
writing, it was the custom to make as many copies as there were parties 
thereto, and each copy was cut or indented, first like the teeth of a saw, 
and afterwards in a waving line, so that each copy would fit into the other 
when it was desired to make a comparison to test the genuineness of any 
of them. This form of deed was called an indenture. It was probably 
copied from the system of indented paper checks that were used as receipts 
for paynaents into the exchequer, and which superseded the ancient system 
of ** tallies in excheauer," which were made by means of wooden sticks 
marked on the edge with notches to indicate the amount paid, while on the 
two sides were written the amount, the name of the payer, and the date of 
the transaction, the stick being then divided longitudinally so that it could 
be fitted together again and read, one-half being reserved in the exchequer, 
and the other half being given to the person paying the money. This 
rude form continued in existence until 1782, when the office of '* tally cut- 
ter" was abolished. Most of the accumulated tallies were burned up. 
If the tally cutting system of recording deeds were in vogue, in Suffolk 
County to-day, the Registry of Deeds would probably resemble a lumber 
yard. The tally cutting system and the indentures were founded on the 
same basis as the Chinaman's laundry check, which is torn irregularly, one- 
half being given to the customer, and the other half being retained so that 
the two may be fitted together when the laundry is claimed. 

The origin and hbtory of the system of conveyancing in America is not 
definitely settled. The systems of the various English colonies were not 
uniform. The earliest English colony established was that of Virginia. 
The first known legislation on the point in this colony was a vote in 1626 
requiring all sales to be brought to Jamestown and enrolled within a year 
of their date. In 1 640 an act was passed providing that a deed or mort- 
gage of land without delivery of possession should be adjudged fraudulent 
unless entered in some court. The next colony established was Plymouth. 
The earliest transfer recorded in that colony was a deed in 1627, which, 
instead of being copied in the record book, was written in the book itself 

268 Origin and Development of Conveyancing [J'Jy 

and signed bj the parties. In 1636 a commission was appointed to alter 
and revise the laws. The revision was adopted, and provided that all con- 
veyances of land should be acknowledged before the governor and recorded 
upon the payment of the fees. This was the origin of the requirement in 
America that deeds should be acknowledged before recording. 

In the Virginia and Plymouth colonies no force or value was given to 
the prior recorded deed, which is one of the chief features of the Massa- 
chusetts system. 

The Massachusetts system of recording transfers of land was formally 
• established by an act or ordinance, as it was called, of the Greneral Court, 
October 7, 1640, which provided : " For avoyding all fraudulent convey- 
ances, & that every man may know what estate or interest other men may 
have in any houses, lands, or other hereditaments they are to deale in, 
it is therefore ordered, that after the end of this month no morgage, bar- 
gaine, sale, or graunt hereafter to bee made of any houses, lands, rents, or 
other hereditaments shalbee of force against any other person except the 
graunter & his heires, unlesse the same bee recorded, as is hereinafter ex- 
p'ssed." Provision was made for acknowledging the deeds, and they 
were to be recorded within the districts into which the Colony had already 
been divided for holding courts. The ordinance further provided tliat " it 
is not intended that the whole bargaine, sale, &c, shalbee entered, but 
onely the names of the graimter <& grauntee, the thing & the estate 
graunted, & the date ; and all such entryes shalbee certified to the recorder 
at Boston." Magistrates were also appointed to take acknowledgments. 

Of course there had been sundry transfers of land in the Massachusetts 
Colony before the date of thk ordinance, and certain rules and restrictions 
had been made by the various towns concerning transfers. Cambridge, for 
instance, became a very exclusive section in 1632, and the town ordered 
that any one desiring to sell his land should oiler it first to the town, and 
that no stranger should be permitted to buy land without the consent of 
the town. Cambridge, however, was not peculiar in this respect, for Dor- 
chester in 1 634, and Boston in 1 635, passed similar orders. 

On April 1, 1634, the General Court ordered that the constable and 
four or more of the chief inhabitants of every town, to be chosen by the 
freemen with the advice of some one or more of the next assistants, should 
make a survey of houses and lands and enter the same in a book with the 
several bounds and quantities by the nearest estimation ; ^' <& shall deliuer 
a transcript thereof into the Court, within sixe monethes no we nexte ensue- 
ing, <& the same soe entered and recorded shalbe a sutlicient assurance to 
eu'y such Free inhabitant, his & theire heires and assignes, of such estate 
of inheritance, or as they shall haue in any such bowses, lands, or Franke- 
tenem's." This order of the General Court was undoubtedly the author- 
ity for the ** Book of Possessions " in Boston and the various towns, upon 
which practically all the titles to land within the limits of the old towns 
have since rested. 

Some of the towns were apparently governed by law-abiding men, and 
prepared their books of possession as required by the General Court, but 
others were negligent, and on December 3, 1639, the towns of Concord, 
Lynn, Weymouth, and Dorchester were fined five shillings each for failure 
to comply with the law. Possibly the people of these towns did not take 
the law seriously in view of the fact that it was passed April 1st. 

The work of preparing the Book of Possessions did not progress to the 
satisfaction of the General Court, which, in 1640, passed the ordinance to 

1911] Origin and Development of Conveyancing 269 

which I have already referred. This ordinance has passed through twelve 
revisions and has been slightly amended, but it has remained unchanged in 
substance with the exception that the provision making it unnecessary to 
record deeds in full has been omitted in the subsequent revisions. " Second 
thoughts/' they say, " are best," but it has been said that " it is not true 
that second thoughts are best, but first, and third, which are a riper first." 

I had the honor of serving as a member of the committee on the part of 
the Senate to revise the laws in 1902, and if at that time I had had as 
much knowledge, experience, and responsibility in connection with the 
transcribing and storing of records as I have now, I think I might have 
been tempted to make available the riper first thought of the legislators of 
1640, by restoring the provision that instruments need not be recorded in 
their entirety, but only as to the essential parts, and thereby obviate the 
perpetuation of much of the unnecessary verbiage that is encumbering the 
records from day to day. 

The requirement that a deed must be acknowledged to entitle it to record 
was probably taken from the laws of the Plymouth Colony as they existed 
in 1636, and the Plymouth colonists in turn probably copied the customs 
of London and the English boroughs, which required an acknowledgment 
before the lord mayor or the recorder and one alderman. With the excep- 
tion of this provision for acknowledgment, the system of recording deeds 
adopted by tlie Massachusetts General Court in 1640 seems to have been 
original, and forms the basis of the present system of recording deeds 
throughout this country. 

The aforesaid act of 1640 authorized three recording districts, one at 
Salem, one at Ipswich, and one at Boston. The first recorder of Deeds 
for Suffolk County was Stephen Winthrop, whose commission was "to 
record things." 

Here are some of the "things '* recorded : On the first page of Volume 1, 
two letters in cipher, or shorthand, which purport to be copies of answers 
to certain inquiries regarding one Hansard Knolles, then minister at Pis- 
cataqua, now Dover, New Hampshire, and a copy of a letter written by 
said Knolles to retract certain accusations that be had made against the 
Massachusetts authorities, among which were that the government " was 
worse than the high commission . . . and that here was nothing but op- 
pression . . . and not so much as a face of religion."

A reminder of the slave traffic is found on page 290 of Volume 1, as 
follows :

These are only a few of the hundreds of interesting and peculiar 
" things " recorded in the early Suffolk records. A member of the Bar 
has recently called my attention to an instrument recorded with the early 
Middlesex deeds, containing this language in the description : " southerly 
to a stake and stones where Daniel Harrington licked William Smith." 

On May 3, 1643, the Massachusetts Colony was divided into four coan- 
ties, namely Essex, Suffolk, Middlesex, and Norfolk. Suffolk County in- 
cluded Boston, " Roxberry," Dorchester, Dedham, Braintree, Weymouth^ 
Hingham, and "Nantaskot." Plymouth Colony was consolidated with 
Massachusetts in 1692. 

In the early days the records did not accumulate very rapidly, and nine- 
teen volumes were sufficient to record the instruments left for record 
prior to .January 1, 1700, in the Suffolk Registry of Deeds. On Janu- 
ary 1, 1800, the number had reached only 193. On January 1, 1850| 
the total was 606, but during the last hulf of the nineteentn century 
there was a wonderful increase in the number of transfers of real estate, 
and on .January 1, 1900, there were 2656 volumes on the shelves. Dur- 
ing the past few years there has been a steady growth, and to-day the 
copyists are finishing volume 3506 of Suffolk Deeds, so that the growth 
for the last eleven years is 244 volumes in excess of that from 1640 to 
1850. This tremendous increase in the volume of land records illustrates 
what a serious problem will confront posterity in the mere matter of the 
storage of the records in the course of a few generations. 

The modem Massachusetts method of conveyancing constitutes one of 
the most technical, responsible, and at the same time most tedious branches 
of the law. It is also one of the least remunerative lines of practice. Con- 

1911] Origin and Development of Conveyancing 271 

Teyancing requires peculiar skill and very close application to detiul. The 
Tery title and the entire value of the land in question is involved in the 
work, and yet the amount of work and detail that would warrant a fee of 
perhaps $500 in the trial of a comparatively small action of tort, rarely 
brings more than $50 when applied to the examination of a title. 

When a person buys a piece of real estate he usually feels that he has 
paid ail it is worth and perhaps a little more, and he is therefore anxious 
to spend as little as possible for the examination of a title, which he con- 
siders in the nature of a somewhat unnecessary extra frill, when in point 
of iad it is the most important part of the whole transaction, and should 
be paid for accordingly. The grantor sometimes tells the grantee that it 
18 unnecessary to examine the title because the property has been in his 
own family for a great many years, or that he has recentiy purchased the 
property and that he had the title examined then by his lawyer, and he 
knows it is all right ; but no person should purchase real estate unless the 
tide is thoroughly examined by a competent conveyancer, or unless he sat- 
isfies himself conclusively that it has been recently examined by such a 
conveyancer, and then has it run down to date. 

Very few lawyers are good conveyancers. They have not had the neces- 
sary experience, perhaps, because they have devoted their time to other 
lines where the returns are greater, but if one employs a good lawyer, of 
coarse he can be depended upon to obtain the services of a competent con- 
veyancer to assist him in the work if he does not feel qualified or has not 
the time to attend to it himself ; and one's lawyer can then attend to the 
final details of passing the papers and dividing the fee. 

I have known a case where the purchaser of a lot of land gave the ex- 
amination of the tide to a legal friend who agreed to do it for a small 
sum, and a few years after he had built his house it was found that he had 
built it on the wrong lot, and was put to considerable expense to remove 
it to the proper location. 

I have had personal experience with a lot where I was counsel for the 
purchaser, and the grantor was an old member of the bar, whose son was 
considered a good conveyancer and had examined the tide a few years 
before. Upon examination I found that the land had been sold for non- 
payment of taxes, and that an attachment made against a prior owner had 
never been dissolved. 

I have often wished that I could speak to some intending purchaser who 
was investing his entire savings in a house and lot, to advise him to get a 
conveyancer to assist some inexperienced member of the bar whom he had 
employed to examine the title, because I felt certain that he was not likely 
to do justice to the examination. 

Ridiculous mistakes are caused by carelessness on the part of inexpe- 
rienced conveyancers who seem to dislike the work and are anxious to 
rash it through as soon as possible. Recently a member of the bar drew 
a deed and took the acknowledgment as justice of the peace, and of course 
signed his own name, but in the mortgage which accompanied the deed he 
signed the acknowledgment with his own first name and the surname of 
the grantor. 

It is not an infrequent occurrence for the grantee, if a justice of the 
peace, to take the acknowledgment of the grantor, which of course is bad 
practice and would meet with objection from future tide examiners. I 
believe there have been cases where the grantor assumed to take his own

If these irregularities are noticed when the paper is presented for record 
they are called to the attention of the grantee and corrected on the spot, 
hut in the rush of business if the instrument is apparently in proper form, 
and is sealed and acknowledged, it is received, and irregularities may not be 
discovered until the document is spread upon the records. Many of the 
irregularites are not fatal to the tiUe, but they all cause annoyance and 
sometimes considerable expense to the purchaser in order to clear the 
title when he attempts to sell his property. 

On a recent trip I met a clergyman who asked me to look up a deed to 
his property, which had been left for record a year ago. I took the instnt- 
ment from the files to mail it, and found that the property had been con- 
veyed to him through a third party who conveyed simply one undivided 
third part, so that the grantee, according to the record, owned only one- 
third of the house and lot instead of the whole. If the grantee succeeds 
in finding the third party he may yet obtain that which properly belongs to 

The necessity for a proper examination of a title before the purchase of 
property was admirably illustrated by the late Uriel H. Crocker in a verj 
interesting* article written for the American Law Review in October 1875, 
and since published in pamphlet form, entitled '' The History of a Title ; 
A Conveyancer's Romance." After reading this article one will readily 
realize how full of pitfalls is the ground which a conveyancer is accus- 
tomed to travel, and how extensive should be his knowledge and how great 
the care to be exercised in the examination of a title. 

Of course the old custom of livery of seisin has long fallen into disuse, 
and to-day in Massachusetts the delivery of a deed in writing under seal, 
and properly acknowledged, is sufiicient without any other act or ceremony 
to convey real estate. The deed must be delivered to the grantee in the 
lifetime of the grantor or it is of no effect. For instance, where a grantor 
had drawn a deed and kept it in an old chest, and the chest with all its 
contents was given to the grantee by will, it was held to be no delivery and 
the deed was void. 

Leases for more than seven years must be recorded in order to be effec- 
tive against third parties. There are on record in the Bemstry of Deeds 
for Suffolk County many interesting leases in the neighborhood of the 
Comhill district, some of them being for 1000 years, and for most peculiar 
rents. For instance, the building at the comer of Court Street and Com- 
hill is leased under a thousand year lease for the rental of ten tons of Rus- 
sia old sables iron, delivered quarterly on the premises. During the early 
life of the lease the rental was paid as called for by the terms of the lease, 
but after a while when Russia old sables iron was not commonly used in 
this country, the custom grew up to pay the rental in gold. The heirs of 
the original lessors some years ago desired to break the lease and demanded 
payment in iron as called for by the terms of the lease, knowing that the 
tenants could not pay it ; and upon failure to pay, declared the lease termi- 
nated. It was held by the Supreme Court, however, that the lessors were 
entitled to the iron if they wanted it, but by reason of change in customs 
the tenants must be given a reasonable time in which to procure the iron. 

In examining the records in the Suffolk Registry it is important to re- 
member that prior to the year 1752 the Julian calendar was in force, and 
March was the first month of the year, the year beginning on the 25th day 
of March ; so that in the old records where the first month is referred U^ 
it means the month of March and not the month of January. 

1911] Origin and Development of Conveyancing 273 

Two volumes of the Suffolk records, numbers 113 and 114, have been 
missing from the registry since the days of the Revolution. The tradition 
is that when the British occupied Boston, Dedham was made the shire town 
of Suffolk County, and in moving the records to and from Dedham the 
books were lost and have never been found. There Ib another tradition 
that these books were taken to Halifax by the Loyalists. 

When I assumed the office of Register of Deeds nearly all of the Reg- 
ister's time was consumed in writing his name upon records and upon the 
recorded instruments to be returned to the grantees. It seemed to me un- 
wise to spend so much time writing my long name to attest records that I 
knew nothing of personally, because of course I could not find the time to 
examine them. I was therefore glad to co-operate with the Register of 
Probate and the Recorder of the Land Court in obtaining the passage of 
an act which authorized the Register to attest the deeds by the volume 
after they are bound, and which authorizes the Register or Assistant Reg- 
ister to a^x a fao-sinule stamp of the Register's signature on the original 
instrument. The passage of this act afforded the Register much more 
time to meet the conveyancers, members of the bar, and public in general, 
to hear complaints, listen to suggestions, and supervise the general conduct 
of the office. 

I believed that there was much danger of fraudulent dissolutions of at- 
tachments under the old law and the old system in use throughout the 
Commonwealth, and I petitioned the Legislature for the passage of an act 
requiring that every dissolution of an attachment on the margin of the 
docket should be witnessed by the Register or one of his assistants thereto 
duly authorized. The bill was passed, and the act became operative May 
23, 1907. 

On July 1st, 1907, 1 substituted the use of the typewriter for pen and 
ink in writing the records, and I think the change has given general satis- 

The early recorders received everything for which a fee was paid, but 
one of the most important duties of the present Register is to prevent the 
recording of matters that are not entitled to record. For instance, a party 
who has a tract of land in one of the suburbs makes a contract with the 
promoter or broker who is to sell the land at auction and get a certain 
commission for selling it, but he is somewhat uncertain as to whether the 
land owner will carry out his agreement. He therefore tries to record 
the personal contract, which would have the effect of using the Register's 
office for a collection agency, because no one who examined the title would 
recommend it to a purdiaser if there was any such cloud upon it. Such 
papers are rejected by the Register after a wordy warfare. 

Again, another man brings in a receipt dated forty years ago, reciting 
that John Smith has received a deed of land from Thomas Jones, which he 
is to reconvey if the said Jones pays the said Smith for legal services. 
The instrument is unsealed and not acknowledged. It is simply a receipt 
for a deed. It is not entitled to record, but Uie attorney who brings it 
in makes a strenuous contest to have it placed on record, and admits that 
the reason he does it is that it will cost less to record such a paper than 
to pursue his remedy in court. 

All kinds of personal requests and favors are asked of the Register to 
help out a lame case, but in Uie interest of real property rights the Register 
Diust have the courage to say " no " to any unreasonable or improper re- 
quest of this kind. 

274 Origin and Development of Conveyancing [July 

There were one or two imperfections in the law that were forcibly called 
to my attention during my first year in office. For instance, it was posgi- 
ble under the law for a mortgagor to go to a record book and write a di»> 
charge on the margin of his mortgage, forging the mortgagee's name. If 
not mscovered, this would deceive a title examiner and lead him to believe 
that the mortgage had been discharged. There was nothing in the law 
requiring a marginal discharge of a mortgage to be witnessed. I intro* 
duced a bill, which was enacted, to have a proper safeguard thrown about 
such discharges similar to the law regarding the dissolutions of attach- 

The typewriting system of recording will reduce the space occupied by 
the records about one-third, but some system will have to be adopted even- 
tually that will not require as much space as is now necessary for record- 
ing or registering titles. It is possible that standard forms of deeds and 
mortgages may be devised, and that in recording an instniment reference 
may simply be made to the grantor and grantee, date, consideration, and 
any peculiar conditions of the instrument, and then have it noted that it 
was a certain standard mortgage or deed of 'the form prescribed by statute. 
Such forms are now in use in some of the western states. 

Under the laws of Maryland every Register of Deeds is required to 
make an abstract of all the essential details of instruments that are recorded, 
and they are sent to the capitol at Annapolis and kept there to preserve 
the record of titles in case any registry of deeds should be destroyed by 
fire or otherwise. This is a wise provision, which I think should be 
adopted in all the states. 

The Massachusetts act authorizing the registration of titles to land went 
into effect on October 1, 1898, and the Land Court was opened for busi- 
ness on the fourteenth of the same month. This law was established for 
the purpose of simplifying the transfer of land and making it unnecessary 
to have an extensive search of the title when it was desired to make a 

Under this system a person desiring to have his land registered first files 
a petition in the Land Court, which is immediately referred to an examiner 
to report on the state of the title. After the examiner's report is received, 
notice is sent to the petitioner, and if the title is passed by the examiner, a 
notice to all interested parties is issued. The petitioner is required to file 
a notice of his petition in the registry of deeds for the district in which the 
land lies. The register of deeds in each county is the assistant recorder 
of the Land Court for his district 

If the court is satisfied that the petitioner is legally entitled to the land, 
a decree for the confirmation and registration of the title is entered in the 
name of the petitioner, and a copy of the decree is sent to the assbtant 
recorder for the district within wluch the land included in the decree is 
situated, together with a copy of a plan of the land as finally established 
by the court. 

The assistant recorder transcribes the decree in a book called the regis- 
tration book, and this entry is the ^' original certificate," which is accom- 
panied by the plan. An exact copy of the original certificate is then made 
by the assistant recorder, and is labelled *' owner's duplicate certificate.** 
On the back of the certificate is entered a memorandum of any encuoA- 
brances stated in the decree. 

When it is desired to transfer registered land, the mntor makes a deed 
in common form setting forth the fact that the land is registered and re>

ferring to the certificate number, and surrenders his owner's daplicate cer- 
tificate to the purchaser, who brings both instruments to the oj£ce of the 
assistant recorder for the district. The instrument of conveyance is prop- 
erij stamped and filed, the old certificate of registration is cancelled, and a 
new original certificate is prepared and filed ; then a new owner's duplicate 
is given to the new owner, an j outsanding encumbrances being noted on 
the back of each new certificate. 

During the year 1910 there were 48,518 transactions at the Suffolk 
Registry of Deeds, and 8906 transactions through the Suffolk Begbtry 
District of the Land Court.

In the college buildings, to each of which the term " College " was in- 
Tariably applied from 1642 to 1720, there have been installed at various 
times no less than eight bells, as verified by information, authentic if often 
very meagre, that has come down to us. The recent discovery, incident 
to Uie excavation for the Cambridge Subway, of ancient foundation walls 
has been thought to strengthen the theory that the original College stood 
near the site of Gray's Hall, though Goffe's College, of which littie is 
known, must have been situated in t]bat vicinity. 

While no picture of the first College exists, detailed descriptions of the 
floor-plans make it possible to reproduce an approximate design of the ex- 
terior, the front of which we know was broken by a turret surrounded by 
a •* lanthom." This turret shows the intent to provide a bell, an instru- 
ment at that date of prime necessity in every community, clocks and watches 
not having come into general use. The following extractf from the '' Rules 
and Precepts that are observed in the Colledge," contained in a book en- 
titied "New England's First Fruits,'' published in London in 1643, in- 
dicate that a bell was already in use : 


7. Every schoUar shall be present in his Tutor's Chambers at the 7th houre 
in the morning immediately after the sound of the hell at his opening the Scrip- 
tares and prayer, so also at the 5th houre at night, and their give an accomit of 
his own private reading, as aforesaid, in particular the third, and constantly 
attend lectures at the houres appointed. But if any without necessary impedi- 
ment shall absent himself from prayer or lectures, he shall be lyable to admoni- 
tion, If he offend above once a week. 

A second reference to this bell is found in "Certain Orders by the 
Scholars and Officers of the CoUedge to bee observed, written, 28 March, 
1650:" X 

The Butler upon every Stzt Day of the week at noon is to give an account to 
every Schollar demanding his weeks sizings in the Buttery & is not bound to 
stay above half an hour at Bevers in Buttery after the Tolling of the bell. Nor

A shade of doubt may, indeed, be cast upon the identity of this bell bj 
the suggestion that the College may have had the use of the bell of th^ 
First Farish, with which dose relations had been established from its founda- 
tion. In fact one of the reasons for selecting Cambridge as the site of the 
College was the proximity of this church, then under the mimstry of 
Thomas Shepard,* a clergyman of marked ability and piety, and the first 
Commencement was held in this meeting house. 

To remove all uncertainty on this point it becomes necessary to show 
that the College possessed tibe only bell in Cambridge at the time when 
these " Rules and Precepts " were framed. Now it is known that the first 
mention of any bell in use in Massachusetts occurs in the History of Cam- 
brid^ by Prince, who says that in 1682 *^ the first house for public worship 
at ^wtown [Cambridge] with a bell upon it " was built ; and Holmes states 
that the town records confirm this statement, and that the town meetings 
were called by the ringing of the bell. Gossf adds that for some reasons 
not known a drum was afterwards substituted, as mentioned by Edward 
Johnson in '^Wonder Working Providence" when on approaching the 
town a drum was heard calling the people to meeting. Furthermore, in 
1646, the records contain an o^er for the payment oi fifty shillings to a 
man for his services to the town in beating the drum. 

The explanation of this temporary substitution of a drum is found in ths 
history of the Society organized under Thomas Hooker. Of two hundred 
Puritans who came over in one company, many had settled in Newtown 
and built the first meeting house, which stood on the west side of Water, 
now Dunster Street, a little south of Spring, now Mt. Auburn Street. In 
the summer of 1636 Mr. Hooker with his entire congregation, one hundred 
in number, emigrated to the place in Connecticut ciuled Hartford ; and it 
is recorded that they carried with them their bell. Here it is said to hsTe 
been in use upon the First Church till it was broken in 1825. It was re- 
placed by another, cast in 1827.$ 

The meeting house in Cambridge thus left vacant was at once bought bj 
the Society, which had been organized February 1, 1636, under Mr. Shepard, 
known thereafter as the First Church in Cambridge ; but for at least ten 
years thereafter the church seems to have been without a bell. That on 
the College therefore was the only pne in use during this interval. 

A vote of the Parish in 1648 incUcates that the firat bell had then been 
replaced by another, for it was ordered : 

That there shall be an eight peny ordnary provided by the Townsmen [Select 
men] every second munday of the month upon there meeteing day ; and tha% 
whoesoever of the Townsmen fail to be present within half an houre of the 
ringing of the bell, (which shall be halfe an houre after eleven of the dock) be 
shall both lose his dinner and, pay a pint of sacke, or the value thereof, to tbe 
present Townsmra. 

Tracing further the history of this second church bell, it was removed 
to the second meeting house, erected in 1650, upon Watch House Hill,

within the present College Yard and near the site of Dane Hall. Replaced 
by a lanzer bell given in 1700 by Capt. Andrew Belcher, it was then voted 
by the Town to give '' the little meeting house bell " to the Cambridge 
Farms, now Lexington. 


In College Book UI is the following entry in the handwriting of the 
Treasurer, Danforth. It is uncertain whether the date of this entry is 
1658, 1659, or possibly a year or two later, but the reference is unquetf- 
tiooably to a second bell. 

Mr. John Willet gave to the CoUedge the Bell now hanging in the Turret!. 

Subsequent allusions to this bell are found in the College Records, for 
example : 

At a meeting of the Overseers, in 1660, it was ordered : 

4. Whereas (through long experience) former Laws have not been effectuall 
for the p^enting of unnecessary dammages to the CoUedge, by the violence or 
carelessness of those for whose Accommodation great cost & charges have from 
time to time been expended. The Overseers do therefore order, that henceforth 
all due care be taken for the p'venting thereof ; And that where any dammage 
BhaU be found done to any Study or Chamber inhabited, The piBon or p^'sons 
resident therein shall make good the same* and where any dammage is done to 
y« Edifice of the CoUedge (excepting by the Inevitable providence of God) to 
any vacant Chamber, or Study, the CoUedge fences about the yard, pump, BeU 
or clock &c. : the same shaU be made good agahi by aU the Students resident In 
the CoUedge at the time when such dammages shaU be done or discovered to be 
done A sbaU be duly payd in their Quarter BlUs to the Steward of the Col- 
ledge, who shaU repay the same to the Treasurer or oth' such officers of the 
CoUedge as shaU be appoynted to disburse the same. (CoU. Bk. Ill, p. 24.) 

At a meeting of the Overseers at the President's house, March, 1667 : 

The Orders f oUowlng were confirmed untlU the Overseers shall see cause to 
take them Into further consideration. (CoU. Lawes. Eadem. Lib. I, p. 87.) 

4. The Steward Is from time to time to pay the CoUedge officers, viz. The 
Tutors, Cook, Batler & Bellringer, their respective dues, sallaryes, also to allow 
the monitors Account. (CoU. Bk. Ill, p. 34.) 

18. The Buttlar upon ev^ 6th day at noon shall give an Account to evy

(CoU. Bk. Ill, p. 36.) 

28. The BeU-Rlngers office is to ring the BeU (except for meales) to keep

MASSACHUSETTS HALL, from a Sketch circa 1798 

1911] Bells of Harvard College 279 

It is to be observed that while the colonists brought from England an 
attachment for musical bells they were also accurate in the use of technical 
words relating to them, many of which, such as " gudgeons," " baldrick," 
" rowel,"* " brasses," " fillet," " flight," " clapper-clamps," having since be- 
come virtually obsolete in this country. Hence their discrimination in the 
use of the words " ring " and " toll." For instance, the bell was " rung " to 
give preliminary warning of approaching service, recitation or meals ; that 
is, it was swung so as to describe a complete revolution, backward and for- 
ward, with each impact of the clapper, and the interval between the strokes 
was therefore long. 

But to give notice that service or recitation was about to begin, or that 
meals were about to be served, the bell was " tolled," or swung only over 
a small arc of the circle in such a way as to allow the clapper to fall upon 
but one side of the sound bow. For deaths and funerals, however, it was 
customary to mount the belfry and toll the bell once in fifteen seconds by 
means of a rope hitched to the fiight, or lower extremity of the clapper. 
In many country towns this custom is still kept up.f 

The second Harvard College, built between 1672 and 1680, was a sub- 
stantial brick edifice from the middle of which arose a low but capacious 
belfry. Inasmuch as this building was designed to take the place of the 
original College, then ruinous and pulled down in 1680, it is probable that 
WUlet's bell was transferred to the new belfry. Here it is believed to have 
done service for nearly a century ; and later was melted or, at least, badly 
damaged in the disastrous fire of 1764, which destroyed the library, philo- 
sophical apparatus, and personal effects of certain students who occupied 
rooms there. President Holyoke, writing to the General Court, declared 
the destruction to have been complete and that nothing was saved.]: A 
passage from the Corporation Records of January 13, 1764, entered but 
a few days before this fire, furnishes final reference to this second bell : 

" The Ctovemor came to town about one o'clock, soon after which all went 
into the Chapel [Holden] at the tolling of the bell, the President and Corpora- 
tion leading/' 


Massachusetts College, or Hall, was built 1718-20.§ On September 5, 
1722, it was " Voted, ^at MT Treasurer be desired to enquire what may be 
the cost of a bell and clock proper for the College." On June 2, 1725, it 
was " Voted, that the Steward be desired to see the bell for the clock to 
strike on, and give an account of the charges thereof ; and that the care of 
the clock be committed to him for thb year to keep it going, and that he 

•The word *• rowel," a little wheel, apart from its use in heraldry, is now employed 
only in connection with a spar. 

t The tollinfl^ of the passing bell was a notification of death, while the number of 
strokes, called " tellers," indicated the sex. Three times three strokes (3x3) was the 
usual number for a male adult: hence the expression **nine tellers make a man," 
which has been corruptly applied to the sartorial craft. 

tMrs. Mascarene, daughter of President Holyoke, states in a letter written Janu- 
ary 30, 1764 to her husband John Mascarene, who was then in London : " The Col- 
lege Bell also is gone." (See ««The College Fire in 1764," by Henry F. Waters, in 
the Harvard RegtHer, iii, p. 297.) 

§ It is here pertinent to note that coincident with the erection of this dormitoir 
there came into use the word •* Hall." employed indifferently with the word *• Col- 
lege " until 1780. With the demolition of Stonghton College in that year the term 
•• College " as an official designation of buildings became obsolete. For the use of the 
words " College " and " Hall," in the United States, see an exhaustive treatment of 
toe subject by Albert Matthews, Esq., in Dialect Notes (American Dialect Society) for 
Dec. 1900, ii, 91-114, and Harvard Graduates Magazine for December, 1904, pp. 244-246.

have £4 for his services in keeping it in order." 

The " Prospect of the Colledges in Cambridge in New England/' en- 
graved in 1726 by W. Burgis, represents this clock on the western gable 
of Massachusetts ; and as the dormitory was topped with neither bel&y nor 
bellcote, the bell mnst have been hong behind the dial-panel still affixed to 
the brick wall, the rectangular opening on each side permitting to a limited 
extent the exit of sound waves. 

Dr. Alexander Hamilton, an English traveller, in his itinerarium of 1744 
notes his impressions as to the artistic merits of the three College buildings 
then standing, and incidentally transmits our last knowledge of this beU^ 
the fate of which is not known, though it may have been returned to Eng- 
land in partial payment for another, as will appear later. 

^^ The building upon the left hand as you enter the court [Harrardl is the 
largest, handsomest, and most ancient, being about 100 years old ; but the mid- 
dle, or front, building [Old Stoughton] is Indifferent and of no taste. That 
upon the right hand [Massachusetts] has a little clock upon it which has a very 
good bell.** 

Dr. Hamilton's estimate as to the superior quality of this instrument can 
be accepted as presumably correct, as it was doubtless of English casting, 
no bells at that date having been made in the Colonies ; and small bells of 
that period of foreign importation were more musical, mellow, and pene- 
trating than the products of modem founders. Thus the sweet-toned tre- 
bles of Christ Church, Boston, have a carrying power equal to the heavieet 
bells of the ring, and under favorable conditions are distinctly audible with- 
in the precincts of the College Yard. A bell, such as was connected with 
the clock upon Massachusetts, was generally of light weight, suspended 
rigid by means of iron straps and bolts from a hem, to be struck by a 
hfunmer on its outer sound bow. Not being supplied with headstock oft 
wheel it could not be swung. 


Harvard Hall was promptly rebuilt after the fire at the expense of the 
Province, which assumed responsibility for the loss because the Legislature 
had been occupying it for its sessions in consequence of the prevalence ol 
amall-pox in Boston. In a new set of '' articles respecting the diet of the 
College," adopted by the Corporation, September 10, 1765, reference is 
made to a fourth bell, doubtless raised to the newly erected belfry : 

*^ 4. The waiters when the bell rings [originally written * tolls '1 at meal 
times shall take the furniture of the tables and the victuals at the kitchen hat^ 
and carry the same to the several tables for which they are designed, immediate- 
ly upon which the bell shall toll," 

In prints and sketches of Harvard Hall taken in the latter part of the 
eighteenth century a clock dial is shown on the gable over the front en- 
trance. Peirce speaks of this clock as still attached to the building in 1831. 
It seems possible, therefore, that the dock may have been transferred thither 
from Massachusetts. 


The fate of the fourth bell is briefly indicated by an entry of January 15, 
1793 : * << Voted, that the President and the Treasurer be a Committee to 
procure the recasting of the College Bell lately splits according to their beet

This bell, like its predecessors was ordered from England, and' was, 
doabUess, of heavier metal, weighing according to the following invoice 
2 cwt. 3 q. 10 lb., or 318 ponnds. Juiasmnch as its diameter at the brim 
would measure about 24 inches, the cask charged in the invoice would pro- 
vide a convenient and safe method of packing for the ocean voyage. 

As to the identity of the two bells returned to the founder in part pay- 
ment, one was plainly the bell recently broken upon Harvard HaJl, whose 
weight was probably about 2 cwt. This would leave 1 cwt. 2 q. 14 lb. for 
the weight of a dock bell such as had about that time been removed from 
Massachusetts Hall. In view of the total destruction of Harvard Hall in 
1764, nothing but the bare walls being left standing, it is inconceivable that 
the Willet Bell should have alone escaped destruction and no record be 
made of it.

In the autumn of 1807 the fifth bell appears to have been damaged by 
vandalism on the part of the students, for on November 23 it was " V oted, 
that the President and others be a committee to examine the state of 
Harvard Hall, and to consider the most effectual method of securing it 
against erruption, make an estimate of the expense, and report to the 
(x)rporation." At this same date it was also voted, " that the President 
be requested to cause a new bell to be purchased for the College on as 
reasonable terms as he can." On January 11, 1808, this Committee made 
its report, when it was " Voted, that when a bell is procured for the College, 
the President be requested to cause good security to be provided against 
all improper access, and that a chain be used, instead of a rope, to ring the 
bell as far as [it] is exposed to common access, or below the floor next the 
beU." It may be added that this grotesque suggestion of a chain attach- 
ment, while affording no protection against trespass, would have made the 
proper management of the bell impracticable. 

This sixth bell was cast in 1808 by Paul Revere at his foundry, which 
had been removed in 1804 from the north end of Boston to C&nUm, this 
estate being still in the possession of his descendants. It weighed 434 
pounds, as recorded in his old stock book now in the possession of William 
B. Bevere. 

282 JBeUs of Harvard College [Julj 


Becoming cracked in 1836 this bell was replaced by another the same 
year weighmg 450 pounds, cast by George Handel Holbrook of East 
Medway, Mass. The Holbrook bell was faultily suspended, and became 
broken in 1899, after having been rung for forty-two years by the Teteran 
janitor, Mr. Jones. It was preserved for a few years as a relic by Mr. 
Jones, but in 1904 it was given by him to the Harvard Memorial Societj 
and was broken up, a part of the bronze being used for tablets placed on 
HoUis and Holworthy Halls. A model of the old bell was made from the 
same metal and presented to Mr. Jones. 

It is a current tradition in Harvard, Mass., that a condemned bell onoe 
used in Harvard Hall was sold to be placed later on the Baptist church in 
tlie parish of Still River. This story finds endorsement in the history of 
tlie town by Henry S. Nourse, while the name of the teamster who is said 
to have hauled the bell from Cambridge is cited by old residents, who are 
even able to describe the pranks by which it was injured. Inasmuch as 
legends of this character usually contain an element of truth, the writer, 
having traced all facts bearing on the matter, ventures to suggest the 
following as the most probable explanation of the error. ^ The bell in 
question, which is indeed cracked, bears the inscription '' George Holbrook, 
1807," this being the year when the fifth Harvard bell was wantonly 
damaged ; and, as a furdier coincidence, it was also the year in which the 
first bell of the town was placed upon the Congregational Church, paid for 
chiefly by private subscription. If it is assumed then that this damaged 
bell was sold for old metal to Holbrook and recast in the same year, it 
would not be unnatural that he should attempt to impart a sentimental 
value by designating it the bell of Harvard HsJl. But how, then, are we 
to account for its appearance at Still River, whose church was not erected 
till 1832 ? On this point light is thrown by the inscription on the bell now 
in use on the Congregational Church, to wit : " G. H. Holbrook, Medway, 
1827," ordered, it would appear, to replace the original bell of 1807 whidi 
had become cracked. And if the damage to the latter had not been con- 
siderable, or enough to impair materially its tone, it would probably hare 
been retained on the chance of disposing of it later for further use. And 
this opportunity was certainly presented ^yq years later, when a bell, now 
said to have been slightly cracked at the time of purchase, was given in 1832 
to be hung upon the Baptist Church in Still River, completed in that year. 
If this theory is correct, then the fact that this cracked bell is composed in 
part at least of the metal of the Harvard bell may afford some consolation 
for the correction of this fiction. 

To most living alumni of Harvard the dear-toned, aggressive sound of 
Holbrook's bell will have been the most familiar, and it will be of interest 
to know that Major George Holbrook acquired the art of bell casting by 
serving as apprentice to Paul Revere at his original foundry at the northern 
extremity of Boston. He started to cast bells on his own account in 
Brookfield, and was establishing a lucrative business when, by the endorse- 
ment of notes, he became financially ruined. He was thus obliged to re- 
linquish his home and retire impoverished to his native town, Wrentham. 
While living there in retirement he managed to secure the contract for 
casting a b£ for the new meeting-house in East Medway. The casting 
was done in an improvised structure and in the presence of a concourse ox 
people in East Medway. His success in turning out a bell of excellent 
tone led to the offer of capital and the establishment of a foundry in the 


1911] Bells of Harvard College 283 

place, conducted by four successive generations until die year 1880. 
During this period these bells acquir^ a reputation equal to that of the 
best English and Belgian founders, the best known in Boston being tiiose 
in the Hollis Street and the West Church towers. No attempt was ever 
made at this f oimdry, nor by Revere, to cast a chime, or peal, a matter of 
much greater difficidty than making single bells. 


The present bell in Harvard Hall, cast by Meneely & Co. of West Troy, 
N. Y., weighs 550 pounds. It was first rung January 7, 1900. 

In 1894 an appeal was made through tiie Harvard Graduates' Magazine 
for a complete ring of heavy bells to be hung in the tower of Memorial 
Hall, designed to facilitate the introduction of scientific change ringing, as 
practiced at Cambridge and Oxford Universities. In reponse to this appeal 
the entire amount necessary to defray the cost of such a peal was promptly 
offered, and from two different sources. The scheme, however, met with 
failure, for an inspection of the imposing tower by engineers disclosed the 
surprising fact that its walls were too unstable to withstand the thrust of 
even light bells swung upon the principle of the pendulum, while all other 
requirements of a ringing guild, including a ringing chamber, had been 
omitted from the architect's designs. 


Memorial Hall now contains a clock and fine-toned bell of 3000 pounds, 
cast by Van Duzen & Co. of Cincinnati, the gift of the class of 1872, 
installed and formally presented after Commencement, 1897. 

It has been suggested that the site of old Stoughton might be appropri- 
ately marked by the erection of a lofty campanile which would serve for a 
clock and peal of bells. Indeed, within a few years a very large sum has 
been offered to the College, more than adequate to provide for the con- 
struction of such a monument. This offer was, however, declined from the 
feeling that any benefit thus accruing to the College would be hardly com- 
mensurate with the amount expended. 

Shortly afterwards came another offer of a ring of twelve heavy bells as 
a memorial of a graduate of the Class of 1847. This generous offer was 
likewise made in vain, one of the reasons assigned being that no tower 
was available for its installation. 

Incidentally, it may be mentioned that change ringing on tower bells has 
been systematically taught for several years at Groton School. Hence 
there can always be found at Cambridge graduates of this school sufficient 
in number to make up a guild of experienced ringers qualified to manage 
church bells of any weight. 

The data above collated establish the fact, not before noted, that of fif- 
teen bells listed below, comprising all known to have been in use in Mas- 
sachusetts up to 1680, inclusive, three were hung within the precincts of the 
present College Yard, viz. the original College bell, that of Willet, and 
the bell of the First Parish Church (Shepard).

For many years the descendants of William French of Cambridge, liiass.' 
who came to New England in 1635 in the Defence^ have suppos^ that he 
was the William French who was baptized in Halstead, Essex, 15 March 
1603, son of Thomas French of Stanstead Hall, Essex. We know that 
the emigrant had a brother John of Cambridge, Mass., whose estate he 
administered in 1645-6. Thomas French of Stanstead Hall also had a 
son John. William French is said to have been seventy-seven years of 
age when he died in 1681. The names of some of his children agree with 
the names of some of Thomas French's children, namely Francis, John, 
Elizabeth, and Mary. All these things made the connection seem most 
probable, especially as the Harlakendens and Rev. Thomas Shepherd, the 
leaders of the party that came in the Defence^ came from EarPs Colne, bat 
two miles from Halstead. 

Now, however, it appears that this supposed ancestry of William Frendi 
is wrong, as the investigations of H. Hutchins French, Esq., of London, 
have disclosed. Mr. French has made an extended research into the 
French families of Suffolk and Essex, and has kindly showed all hii 
papers and has allowed extracts to be made from them. It was he who 
lirst called attention to the fact that William, the son of Thomas French of 
Stanstead Hall, died in England. The evidence b as follows : 

1. Thomas French of Arkesden, Essex, held the manor of Pitley in 

Bardfield, Essex. Will proved 1551. Wife Elizabeth, whose 
will was proved in 1556. They had daughters Elizabeth, Joane, 
and Agnes, and one son 

2. Thomas French of Wethersfield, Essex, who married first Eliza- 

beth, and secondly Bridget. He inherited the manor of Pitley 
from his father. Will proved 1599. He had daughters Mary and 
Elizabeth, and one son 
8. Thomas French, who married Anne or Agnes, daughter and co- 
heiress with her two sisters of John Olxbtead, gentleman, of 


1911] Genealogical Research in England 285 

Stanstead Hall, Halstead, which place she either inherited or had 
as her marriage portion. Thomas French was buried in Halstead 
20 Nov. 1613, his will being proved in the Prerogative Court of 
Canterbury 27 Jan. 161 3-1 4. He mentions wife Ann, son Thomas, 
and his mother[-in-law] Palladia. To sons John, Edward, Wil- 
liam, Robert, and Francis £400 each, and to each daughter £300. 
His wife Ann was buried in Halstead 11 Feb. 162^5, and her 
estate was administered by her son Edward and daughter Mar-

4. Thomas French " of Frating," who married at Canterbury Palla- 

dia Wood, died intestate, and administration was granted to his 
widow Palladia 2 Mar. 1620-1. In November previous he sold 
Stanstead Hall to Sir Oliver Luke for £3500. He had no male 
issue, and 17 Feb. 1685-6 a commission was issued to John French, 
brother of Thomas, to administer the goods left unadministered by 
Palladia, who had died. On 15 July 1639 a commission was issued 
to Edward French to administer the goods of Thomas left unad- 
ministered by John French, who had died. In 1642 this commis- 
sion was revoked and the power given to Thomas Lewyn and his 
wife Dorothy Lewyn alias French. 

5. William French, bapt. at Halstead 15 Mar. 1603, of St. Dunstans 

in the West, London, made his will 14 May 1621. To be buried 
in the churchyard of St. Dunstans. Various sums to William 
Drury, Mr. Harmond Johnson, Mrs. Whiteblood, Morgan Symonds. 
All the rest of his goods to be equally divided between his brothers 
and sisters unmarried, namely John, Edward, Robert, Francis, 
Ann, Elianor, Elizabeth, Margaret, Jemima, and Dorothy French. 
He mentions the sum of £400 given him by his father. Proved in 
the Commissary Court of London 27 Nov. 1637 and 1639 [both 
dates given] by Elianor Gunter. On 12 Feb. 1637-8 a commis- 
sion to administer the goods was issued to John French of Hal- 
stead, County Essex, gentleman, brother of William French late, 
while he lived, of the parish of St. Dunstans in the West, London, 
bachelor, deceased. [After the death of John French the sister 
Elianor probably took out letters of administration.] This dis- 
poses of the William and John French, son of Thomas of Stanstead 
Hall, and proves that they could not have emigrated to New Eng- 

286 Oenealogical Research in England [J^7 

land. There was, however, another family of French in Halstead, 
to which belonged a William, bom in 1606. The information re- 
garding them in the church registers is slight.

[Peter Branch of Halden died on the voyage to New England in the 
ship Coitle in 1638, and by his will dated 16 June 1638 bound his son 
John to Thomas Wybome for eleven years, probably until he came of age, 
which would make him bom about 1628.* This John was of Marshfield, 
married Mary Speed, by whom he had issue, and died 17 August 1711. 
The Branches in England seem to have been of nomadic habits. The 
father, Symon, died in Tenterden, though there is no other mention of the 
family in the registers. Peter lived in Nettlestead, Frittenden, Biddenden, 
and Halden, and his sister was in service in HoUifield. — £. F.]

[In addition to the foregoing material received from Miss French, the 
Committee presents the following data in relation to the ancestry of Moses 

Among the emigrants from co. Kent, England, who came to New Eng- 
land with the company in The Castle in 1638, was Moses Paine (with his 
children Elizabeth, Moses, and Stephen), whose forebears had long resided 
in Frittenden and vicinity, among them Stephen Payne of Frittenden, 
supervisor of the will of Thomas Igylnden in 1497. (See above, p. 175.)

ScAMMON, Atkins.— The Scammon genealogy states that the first known of 
Humphrey Scammon was the birth of his son Humphrey at Kittery, 1677, dur- 
ing the Indian war ; but before the war, 7 May 1674, Humphrey Scammon, no 
addition or residence given, bought land in Wells from Nathaniel Fryer of Great 
Island. The will of Mrs. Elizabeth Safjyn, widow of Mr. Peter Lidgett of Bos- 
ton, dated 14 Apr. 1682, gives her brother John Scammond £20; brother Rich- 
ard Scaramond £20 ; sister Anne Waldron £20 ; cousin Elizabeth Attkins, my 
brother John Scammond*s daughter, £40; cousin Jeane Scammond, daughter 
of my brother Richard Scammond, £60 ; cousin Hannah Gerrish £5. As brother 
John was first named he was presumably the eldcf^t, and my theory is that Hum- 
phrey was his son, bom 1640, his sister Elizabeth being remembered by her aunt 
in Boston as her namesake. This Elizabeth Atkins I surmise may have been 
the wife of Thomas Atkins at the mouth of the Kennebec, who left ten daugh- 
ters and no sons, among them Elizabeth, who married Davis ; Anne, who 

married Samuel Clark of Marblehead ; Sarah, who married Samuel Gumey of 

Little Compton; Susannah, who married Green; Hester, who married 

George Pike of Mendon ; Rachel, who married James Berry of Boston ; Abigail, 
who married Thomas Washburn of Bridgewater ; and Ruth, who married John 
Haskins of Scituate. My conjecture is that John Scammon and his family may 
have lived in remote parts, and came out to the older settlements when they fore- 
saw trouble with the Indians. It seems hardly possible that so active a man 
as the first Humphrey Scammon could have lived about Portsmouth until 84 
years old before getting his name into any record. Can anything be added or 
detracted from the foreging? « Charles Thornton Libbt. 

PorUand^ Me, 

HoBiB.— The Reoibtbr, vol. 60, p. 92, gives extracts from the journal of Dr. 
Ebenezer Robie during his visit to England in 1726, including a copy of the re- 
cords in a Robie family Bible which he found among the relatives in Yorkshire. 
Three of the family were marked "went to N. E.," namely: Henry, bom 12 
Feb. 1618; Samuel, bom 12 Feb. 1628; and William, bom 26 Apr. 1648. The 
first two were brothers, their father being Thomas, and their brother Thomas 
was the father of William who was the father of Dr. Ebenezer. Savage saw 
this journal, but conjectured that Samuel might have lost his life in the English 
wars before getting away for New England. On the contrary, Samuel Robie 
lived perhaps thirty years in the vicinity of bis brother in New Hampshire (the 
one at Hampton, the other at New Castle), married a sister of the distinguished 
councilor and military man. Col. Shadrach Walton, and left probably three chil- 
dren. The reason why Savage missed him, doubtless, was that he lived in the 
city instead of in the country, on Great Island, the Boston of New Hampshire, 
afterwards New Castle, the city of shops and rented houses, politicians and high 
life, fort soldiers and taverns, but without the saving puritanism of Boston. 

The few mentions of Samuel Robie which Savage failed to observe are as fol-

Thomas Roby who was working on George Walton's boat, Walton Roby, 
Samuel Walton and Elizabeth Treworthy. 
1686. In the will of George Walton, Sen., he gave forty acres of land to Thomas 
Roby, Walton Roby, and Elizabeth Treworthy. 

Another grandchild, doubtless, was Mary Roby, who was married at Ports- 
mouth, 13 Aug. 1683, to William Tetherly; administered on his estate, 1693; 
and was married again to John Lydston. She bore children : Mary, 8 May 1684 ; 
William, 3 Nov. 1685; Samuel, 26 Feb. 1686-7; Elizabeth, 20 July 1689; and 
others as late as about 1701, or possibly much later, as her younger Lydston 
children were not recorded. This Is Inconsistent with her being Samuel Roby's 
widow, but quite consistent with her being sister to Thomas Roby who was 
working on George Walton's boat In 1682. The fact that she was not mentioned 
in her grandfather's wlU Is without significance. There were no small bequests 
in his will ; he gave everything to his wife, except certain lands to his diosen 
heir, Shadrach, afterwards colonel, and to some unprotected grandchildren. 
This Mary Roby could not have been Henry Roby's daughter Mary, as she was 
married at Hampton, 22 Dec. 1663, to Samuel Folsom ; and the nephew, William 
Roby, was not old enough to be her father. 

That this William Roby came first to New Castle, before settling in Boston, is 
shown by his deposition, 21 July, 1679, aged 30, to the effect that being desired 
by George Walton to take account and value the goods that were in the shop 
that his daughter Taprielle kept, etc. Also by his serving as an appraiser with 
his uncle Henry Roby on the estate of another of George Walton's daughters, 
Martha West. Still another Walton-Roby incident was the conveyance of a honse 
and land by George Walton to Henry Roby, 1662. 

Incidentally speaking, it should have been noticed long since that Henry Roby's 
wife Ruth, who died at Hampton 5 May 1673, was the daughter of William 
Moore of Exeter and Ipswich, mentioned in his will, 14 Aug. 1660, and sister of 
Capt. William Moore of Exeter. The father and son Moore are made one in 
Bell's History of Exeter. Charles Thornton Libbt.

Trkadway, Haynbs, Howe.— That Nathaniel Treadway*s wife, Saflferana, 
was the daughter of Walter^ Hajmes of Sudbury, and not of Elder Edwiurd 
Howe of Watertown, as stated in 1860 by both Savage and Bond, is the inevi- 
table conclusion from a study of the case in its various aspects. 

Mrs. Alice Haynes of Semley, WUts, in her wlU dated 2 March 1620-1, men- 
tioned her son Walter Haynes, his son Thonuis and daughter Elizabeth, and 
Sufferaine and Marie Haynes, her granddaughters (Register, vol. 39, pp. 263-4). 

Walter Haynes with his wife Elizabeth, sons Thomas, John, and Joslas 
(under 16), and daughters Suifranc and Mary, came in the Confidence in 1638 
(Drake's Founders of New England, p. 57). 

Both Walter^ Hajmes and Nathaniel^ Treadway had settled in Sudbury by 
1639, as they are found hi the list of " 1638 or 1639 ** given by Hudson (History 
of Sudbury, p. 26). That they were, comparatively, near neighbors Is seen by 
the map of the early settlement (Ibid, p. 76). 

The next definite fact regarding Sufferana' Haynes Is found In the wUl of 
Walter* Haynes, dated 25 May 1659, ''signed again by mee** 4 March 1668-4, 
and proved 4 April 1665, who mentions his wife Elizabeth, his four chUdren 
now in New England, John Haynes, Joslah Haynes, Suifrany [or Sufflrans] 
Treddoway, and Mary Noyes; also his son-in-law Thomas Noyes, son-in-law 
Roger Gourd and daughter Gourd In England, and '' lands In Sudbury which 

296 mtes [July 

were sometime owned by my son Thomas Haynes** (Middlesex Co. Probate, 
No. 10989). 

Thomas Noyes of Sudbury, by his will made 20 August 1664 and proved 2 April 
1667, left ^^ twenty shillings apiece unto ye two eldest daughters of brother 
Tredaway." To each of ms three sisters he left twenty shlUlngs, and, except 
two other small legacies, all the rest of his estate, real and personal, to his wife 
Mary. Overseers : Mr. Joseph Noyes and Josiah Hajmes. Witnesses : Joseph 
Noyes, Mary Treadxoay, Thomas Battelle, Ralph Day. (Middlesex Co. Probate, 
No. 16084.) 

Savage tells us that SuflTerana* Haynes married Josiah Treadway of Sudbury. 
Hudson repeats this statement, changing the residence to Watertown and adding 
that in the will of Walter Haynes his daughter Sufferance Is mentioned *'as 
behig the wife of Josiah Treadway " (History of Sudbury, p. 83). This state- 
ment, however, is erroneous, for the given name of Suffierana's husband does 
not appear in connection with her father's will nor the probate of his estate; 
nor does Thomas Noyes mention It. Mary Noyes, widow of Thomas, married 
secondly Michael Bacon of Wobum, 28 November 1670 (Wobum Marriages, 
p. 14). He died 4 July 1683, and she died at Sudbury 1 March 1697-8. Her 
estate was not, apparently, settled by the probate court of the county, but she 
disposed of some, at least, of her real estate by deeds In 1669, 1670, 1696. and 
1697. Neither John' Haynes nor Josiah* Hajmes left any legacy to their sister 
Bnfferana or any of her family. 

A somewhat extended search. Including probate, land, and court records of 
Middlesex and Suffolk counties, the printed records of the Colony, the lists of 
early emigrants. Pope's Pioneers, and the lists of early proprietors printed In 
the histories of Sudbury and Watertown, falls to reveal any evidence of a 
Josiah Treadway In the Colony until the birth In 1650 of Josiah* rNathanlelM. 

Nathaniel Treadway was married by 1689 or the early part of 1640, for hii 
first child, Jonathan, was bom at Sudbury 11 November 1640. Mary, daughter 
of Nathaniel and Suflhiny Treadway, was bom at Sudbury 1 August 1642. 
Their daughter Elizabeth was bom at Watertown 3d of the 2d mo. 1646, and 
Deborah, 2d of the 6th mo. 1657. The other children, James, Lydla, and Josiah. 
mentioned In their father's will, were not recorded. Nathaniel Treadway died 
at Watertown 20 July 1689, and Sufferana his wife died there 22 July 1682. 

A comparison of the Christian names of Nathaniel Treadway's children wHh 
those of the Haynes family Is highly suggestive. Sufferana Hajmes's mother 
was Elizabeth. She had sisters Elizabeth and Mary, and a brother Josiah. 
The latter named a daughter Deborah, and John* Haynes named a son James. 

Nathaniel Treadway of Watertown, with John Haynes, Josiah Haynes. and 
Thomas Noyes, all of Sudbury, purchased a tract of 3200 acres of land at 
" Quanslcamug - Pond In 1664 and 1666 (Middlesex Co. Deeds, yols. 3, p. 69, and 
7, p. 194; Mass. Bay Records, vol. 4, pt. 2, p. 298; Hudson's Sudbury, p. 163). 

From the foregoing It Is seen that Sufferana Hajmes was of the right age ; 
that she married a man named Treadway ; that she had more than two daugh- 
ters by 1664 ; that Nathaniel Treadway lived near her In Sudbury ; that he waa 
married to a Sufferana not long after her arrival from England ; that his chil- 
dren's names are, with two exceptions, found also In the Haynes family ; that 
he had gained the confidence of her brothers and brother-in-law to a degree 
which 1^ to their business association twenty years after his removal from 
Sudbury ; and that there must have been visiting between the families, as his 
eldest daughter was a witness to Thomas Noyes's will. 

When It Is also considered that not only can there be found no Josiah Tread- 
way, but no other In the Colony of the name except Nathaniel Treadway, until 
Nathaniel's sons were bom, It seems almost superfiuous to consider the Howe 
statement at all. 

Elder Edward Howe of Watertown made his will 18 June 1644, giving to 
Nathaniel Treadaway about thirteen acres of land, an equal interest with Mrs. 
Margaret Howe ye ^' Anne Stonne ye wife of John Stonne of Sudbury ** in the 
wlers and In money due from Mr. Thomas Maybe w, and, after his wife Marga- 
ret's death, whatever estate, real or personal, might be left, except that *' Anbe 
Stonne shall haue one third part of all the Cattle ** (Suffolk Co. Probate, vol. 1, p. 
81; Register, vol. 8, p. 77). 

Widow Margaret How of Watertown made her will ** The eight of the Second 
1647." It was proved 18 December 1660, before which time she had become 


Ifbtes 297 

Mrs. George Bunker. She gftve one half of her whole estate to Nathaniel 
Treadaway, one third to John Stone, and one sixth to her sister Mary Rogers, 
widow, and her children John and Elizabeth Rogers in England, if living at 
time of her decease, otherwise this sixth to be di^ded by Tr^ulway and Stone, 
three fifths to the former and two fifths to Stone. (Middlesex Co. Probate, 
No. 12074.) 

In neither of these wills is Nathaniel Treadway called son or son-in-law, 
while Sofferana Is not even alluded to in either ; nor is Ann Stone's relationship 
to either Howe expressed. Several deeds are recorded in which some of the 
land received by Nathaniel Treadway under Howe's will was disposed of. It 
is described as ^^ land which Sometime was Eider Howe's," ** land commonly 
Called by ye name of Hows field," and ^* land originally granted to Elder How 
of Watertown." On 4 July 1728, Josiah Treadway of Charlestown sold **all 
my right ... in Common or undivided lands in the Township of Watertown 
. . . that is to Say the right of M' Edward How formerly of said Town given « 
by him (with his other Estate) in his last will ... to my father Nathaniel 
Treadway and by him conveyed to me" (Middlesex Co. Deeds, vol. 29, p. 102). 

Whether Natlianiel Treadway and Ann Stone were brother and sister and 
Edward Howe was their unde, or the kinship was more remote, or they were 
his wards, may later be settled, but at present it is matter for speculation only.

of Samuel' P&ge, went to South Carolina. The following deeds and wills prove

South Carolina, tliat he iuaFTmU lirlci!, lUUT a large family and, returning to Qro- 
ton, finally settled at Lunenburg with most of his children. 

In vol. 16 of the Middlesex Co. Deeds are three deeds filed on the same date, 
a June 1718, and followhig each other in the book. The first (p. 811) : " Jojjg 
Page 6?tTroton, Middlesex Co. husbandman do give to my loving son SoiSuS 
Page of Groton ... a five acre right lying ... in Groton . . . first for his

. . . bind myself . . . not to molest the abovesald John Page . . . for any 
more of his estate without the s'd John Page my honored father sees just cause 
for to give It to me by Will or Deed," etc. Signed by John Page, Sr., and Sam- 
uel Page, 18 Jan. 1698. 

Second deed (p. 811) : Samuel Page of South Carolina, formerly of Groton, 
Mass., and Nathaniel Lawrence of Charlestown, sell to Stephen Holden of Groton 
land in Groton, 5 June 1718. 

Third deed (p. 812) : " Samuel Page Senr of South Carolina ... for and in 
consequence of £88 8s. paid by Joseph Sanderson of Groton "... sells to him 
*^ a five acre right lying and being in Groton as f olloweth, First the houselot 
of fifteen poles wide, the whole length of the Lott, bounded Southerly upon 
land of John Longley, Northerly on Und of John Page, easterly on the country

upon the river, S . . by land of Samuel Davis, N . . and E . . by lands of John 
Page " [etc., for all other pieces mentioned in the first deed] . Signed by Samuel 
Page 80 Apr. 1718. 

This Samuel Page married first a daughter of Nathaniel Lawrence, probably 
Sarah Lawrence ¥mo deceased before her father, as in his will in 1718 he leaves 
a bequest to son Samuel Page (Lawrence Genealogy, vol. 1 7, p. 1 8) . By the word- 
ing of the will of Samuel Page I should judge the following children belonged to 
her : Samuel, bom 1692, John, Joseph, Jonathan, William, Nathaniel, and David, 
and perhaps the daughter Sarah. On his return from South Carolina he settled 
at Lunenburg, but entered the births of two children on the Groton records, viz. 
Elizabeth and Daniel. On the Lunenburg records he entered these children with 

298 Ji^otes [July 

the rest of his family, and at this time he had a wife Martha. Children on rec- 
ord: Elizabeth, bom 28 Mar. 1719; Zachariah, bom 10 Apr. 1721, died 1721; 
Daniel, born 10 Aug. 1722 ; Martha, bom 31 May 1725, died 1728 ; Benjamin, bom 
12 Oct. 1727 ; Thomas, bom 6 Sept. 1780. In 1740 the death of John Page, son 
of Mr. Samuel Page, at Jamaica is recorded '' Being there on ye Spanish expe- 
dition." His wife Martha died in 1746, and he married thirdly, 9 July 1747, Sarah 
Parce of Leominster. He died on 7 Sept. 1747. His will (Worcester Co. Pro- 
bate, vol. 2, p. 666), proved 3 Nov. 1747, is peculiar in the order of the naming 
of the children. It would seem that the children by the first wife had already 
received property from him, because he starts with specific bequests to the sons 
of Martha, mentioning first ^^ son Daniel, son Thomas,** his daughters ''^ Heirs 
of dau. Sarah Fams worth dec^d,** ^' dau. Elizabeth Parker,'* then '' goldheaded 
cane to son Samuel Page,*' and ^^ all the residue to be divided between my sons 
Samuel Page, Joseph Page, WUliam Page, Nathaniel Page, and David Pi^ge," 
with reservations for wife Sarah. Sons Jonattian and Nathaniel Page, executors. 

All the sons, with the exception of Samuel Jr., settled with the father at Lu- 
nenburg. Samuel Page, Jr., returned to Charlestown, and married, 20 May 1719, 
Susanna Page. He lived there for some years, but settled finally at Medford. 
He died in 1749, and his age at death makes him bom in 1692, so that he must 
have been the eldest son. In his will he mentions, besides his family, his prop- 
erty at Medford, Charlestown, and Lunenburg. It would seem probable from 
this data that Samuel Page, Sr.,'s first wife, Sarah Lawrence, died in South Car- 
olina, and tliat he married his second wife there.

repaired to Edwardstone to get satisfaction of his debt. Benjamin Brand did 
a^ee to pay £15, which he appointed Joseph Brande of London, Merchant, his 
brother, to pay at Edwardstone. Your Subject repaired to London, but Joseph 
Brande refused to pay the £15-0-0. Writ is asked for against Benjamin Brand. 

The answer of Benjamin Brand. That it only ought to be paid in New Eng- 
land. Mr. Samuel Marvericke, then & yet in New England, doeth owe unto this 
deft 15 lbs of beaver & Mr. Graves 10 lbs, and Mr. Gibbons 7 lbs. That he had 
told the compt that he could have all the beaver in the alK>ve hands for payment

Pearson v. Kirbye. May 1667. Orator Henry Pearson of Southampton in 
Longe Island, an Ancient. Whereas about May 1659, before your Orator went 
out of this Realme, your Orator lent to John Brimley of Olney, Bucks, £21 on 
security of three acres of land in Olney. Brimley neglected to repay the prin- 
cipal & interest & died in the Orators debt. Your Orator before his departure 
by letter of attomey appointed Edward Fuller of Olney, William Coynes of 
Olney, Mercer, Thomas Consteble of the same, all now deceased, to recover his 
debts. Daniel Howes, In right of his wife Jane, has sold the lands to Jo Kirt^ 
of Olney, Haberdasher. Object of this suit is to obtain principal & interest.

The answer of John Klrby is that he purchased the lands about eight or nine

Glbbs, master of a ship, came to the said Flantacon and intreated your subject 
to receive some small p*cell of goods & brought the Surgeon of the Plantacon to 
testefle the want of such commodities, your Subject replyed that if he would 
leave his goods there he might, but your Subject would not become his Pay- 
master for that the said Gibbs must expect his money in England from the Com- 
pany in London. About a year ago Gibbs came & said he had not received the 
money for the goods left In New England. Gibbs has commenced a suit agahist 
your Subject contrary to all equity, pretending your Subject promised him pay- 
ment. A writ is asked for against John Gibbs, Sir Ferdinando Georges knt, 
John Mason esq, John Cotton, George Griffiths, Wm Cotton, Kichard Pulford, 
Thomas Wannerton, Henry Gardiner, & Thomas Eyre. (Court of Requests,

(p. 194), is the male descent of the ancestors of Margaret Grazebrook, the

Lke Family in England.— Eugene F. McPike, 1 Park Row, Chicago, re- 
ports that considerable information concerning the early history of the Lee 
family In England has already been collected by Ralph J. Beevor, M.A., 
(Trinity CoUge, Cambridge), of '' Langley," Lemsford Road, St. Albans, Eng- 
land. Sir. Beevor Is also Interested In the genealogy of other families, Including 
Hare, Halley, Hawley, Parry, Pike, Pyke, Stuart, etc., and might, perhaps, be 
willing to open communication with serious investigators, who should enclose 
response-coupon . 

Eugenics and Genkalogy.— The attention of all genealogists Is called to the 
recent establishment of the Eugenics Record Office at Cold Spring Harbor, Long 
Island, N. Y., by the Eugenics Section of the American Breeders' Association. 
This office has for Its object the study of the inheritance of mental and physical 
traits In the human family, and while the data required Is largely of a biological 
nature it is believed that there Is a close connection between its work and that 
of the genealogies, and co-operation is sincerely offered and earnestly solicited. 
It is hoped that it may be possible to establish a reference library of current 
genealogies whlcrv wlU be of great value In connecting links and in verifying 
and extending pedigrees, and any contributions to such a library will be grate- 
fully received. The office also solicits correspondence and collaboration, and 
cordially Invites any who are Interested to pay a personal visit to it and learn 
further of the work. Address C. B. Davenport, Secretary.

Salvage frcm the Fire in the New York State Librart, Albaxt 

Books ■ 

From the 450,000 printed books which were destroyed with the New York 
State Library in the fire of March 29, there were saved no more than 10,000 
volumes. About one-third of this salvage was from the general reading and 
reference room and comprised the standard cyclopedias and sets, partial <»* 
complete, of the more important general periodicals. The other two-thirds of 
the salvage was from the collections on local history and genealogy. Exclusive 
of general works on United States history, regimental histories, church histories 
and manuals, the collections in local history and genealogy comprised about 
15,000 volumes— 7000 genealogies, 8000 state, town and county histories. Per^ 
haps one-third of these were saved— 4000 volumes of the local history and 1000 
Individual genealogies. The loss In the latter subject was complete in the de- 
partment of vital records, church registers, heraldry, and genealogical periodi- 
cals. The local history saved consisted principally of material relating to New 
York. New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Most of the books on Counectlcot, 
Massachusetts, and all of Bhode Island were totally destroyed. It is probable 
that when the final counting is made the salvage in this department will be 
rather less than indicated by the above figures, for many of the boolu counted 
with the salvage will prove to be so badly burned, or odd volumes of sets, that 
it will be either impossible or unwise to rebind them. 

The salvage is being rapidly catalogued. This will have been finished by June 
1. At that time active efforts will be began to rebuild the collections. To this 
end, the Library will be glad to have the help of all who are interested in these 
subjects, and gifts will be welcomed from every direction. As the salvage la 
so considerable, it will be well to ascertain first from the Library whether con- 
templated gifts are needed. Lists of books sent to the New York State Library, 
162 State St., Albany, N. Y., will be examined with care and promptness. It 
is to families, or publishers of genealogies and items of local history, that the 
Library gratefully acknowledges so much help in making its collection pre- 
eminent in the past, and because of this assistance it looks to the same sources 
with confidence for material help in its restoration.

OCTOBER, 1911 


By Chables Sionbt Ensign, LL.B., of Newton, Mms. 

William Carver' Bates was born in Hanover, Mass., May 25, 
1838, and died in Newton, November 6, 1910. His father was 
Rufiis,' who married Huldah Keith. The paternal line is Gamaliel,* 
Clement,* Joseph,* James,' and Clement' Bate of Hingham, 1635, 
descended from John Bate of Lydd, co. Kent, England, who died 
there in 1522, and also from Robert Carver of Marshfield, 1638. 

His maternal ancestry was from Experience Mitchell of Plymouth, 
1623, and Bridgewater, and Rev. James Keith, who came in 1660 
and in 1665 was the first minister settled in Bridgewater, and Col. 
Edward and Major Thomas Mitchell. Experience Mitchell came 
to Plymouth in the Anne in 1623, and was undoubtedly the son 
of Thomas, an original member of the Separatist Church in London, 
which removed to Amsterdam and settled there before the Pilgrims 
went to Holland. This Thomas Mitchell was bom about 1566. 

His first wife, Maria , died before May 9, 1606, and he then 

married Margaret (Williams) Dickens at Amsterdam, May 9, 1606. 
She was the widow of Christopher Dickens, also a member of the * 
London Separatist Church, and who also went to Amsterdam. 
Various searchers of the Amsterdam records have read this name 
Digchin, Diggins, Thickens, Uochin, Urchin.* Mr. Bates was also 
descended from Richard Warren, Francis Cook, and Gov. William 
Bradford, who came in the Mayflower in 1620. 

He was educated in the district school of Hanover, and at the age 
of twelve entered its academy, where he remained until the autumn 
of 1854. Fond of biography, history, and travels, and a keen ob- 
server, he was regarded in after life as a well educated man. 

His business life commenced in the store and family of John C. 
Calif of Gloucester, where he remained two years. ' On January 1, 
1857, he became a clerk in the dry goods house of Houghton, 
Sawyer & Company of Boston.

308 William Carver Bates [Oct. 

At the beginning of the Civil War he enlisted, April 9, 1861, in 
Co. G from Concord of the Fifth Regiment, M. V. M., under 
Capt. George H. Prescott. Captured in the first battle of Bull Run, 
July 26, 1861, he was confined in the prisons of Libby and Rich- 
mond, Va., for two months. New Orleans, La,, four months, and 
Salisbury, N. C, four months — in all ten months. 

Retiring from service, he married in Hanover, April 14, 1863, 
his schoolmate Emma Barstow, of good ancestry, bom in Scituate 
June 15, 1837. Their children were three boys, named Rufus 
Carver, William Haviland, and Wilfred Barstow, and three girls, 
of whom the last survive, and are actively engaged in educational 
work in New York City. 

Soon after his marriage Mr. Bates became a member of the firm 
of Holmes, Bates and Nichols, commission merchants in Boston, 
who transacted a large business in the British Provinces, the Weet 
Indies, and South America. During his mercantile career he trav- 
elled in the British North American Provinces, the British Weet 
Indies, the northern coast of South America, British Guiana, Vene- 
zuela, Honduras, the Bahamas, and Bermuda. 

Having retired from mercantile business, after serving as com- 
missioner at the New Orleans Exposition in 1884, he entered into 
the service of the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York, 
in which he remained until his death. 

In 1866 the family removed to Newton, and became identified 
with its civic and church life. Connected with Grace Episcopal 
Church, he faithfully served its corporation and church in various 
capacities, and at his death was the oldest member of the corpora- 
tion, having been elected April 13, 1868. 

Mr. Bates was very active in the erection in 1876 of the Eliot 
Terrace at Nonantum (Newton), in commemoration of the locality 
where John Eliot preached the gospel to Waban and his tribe of 
Indians, October 28, 1646, and the founding and donation to the 
city of the " Eliot Fund " of three hundred dollars, the income ftt>m 
which is expended annually in prize essays on historical subjects 
written by pupils of the Newton public schools. He was elected a 
member of the Newton Common Council in 1889 and 1890. At 
the celebration of Newton's Centennial, June 17, 1876, he presented 
a portrait of Col, Joseph Ward of Revolutionary fame to the city 
with an historical address. 

He was connected with many clubs, societies, and associations of 
prominence, among which were The Young Men's Christian Union 
(life member) ; Boston Mycological Club (charter member and vice- 
president) ; Boston Chess Club (a director) ; Charles Ward Post, 
No. 62, G. A. R., Newton; Massachusetts Association of the 
Prisoners of War ; Hunniwell Club, Newton ; Tuesday Club, New- 
ton, before which he read some seventy-three papers; Newton 
Natural History Society (charter member and treasurer) ; and the 
old Bridgewater Historical Society (life member) . 

1911] William Carver Bates 309 

Mr. Bates was frequently called upon for lectures and addresses 
before private and public organizations, among which was that at 
the Hanover Academy in 1858 on "The Outer and Inner Life"; 
•* Return from Rebel Prisons," in 1863, in Hanover, Gloucester, and 
Abington ; the historical address at the 1 50th anniversary of Hano- 
ver and dedication of the soldiers' monument, in 1876; Memorial 
Day address in Newton in 1876, and in Hanover in 1908 ; the pre- 
sentation of the Eliot Memorial in 1876 ; the dedication of the 
Hanover Free Public Library in 1907, for which he had provided 
the Hanover Alumni Fund ; the anniversary of the Boston Chess 
Club in 1907 ; and the Bostonian Society. 

He edited a imique volume named " Stars and Stripes in Rebel- 
dom," consisting of compositions read at their meetings by his 
fellow-prisoners, and which upon his release were brought away 
under the cover of a canteen. Also the following monographs : 
" Rambles in the Tropics," "Venezuela and British Guiana," *' Creole 
Folk-Lore," and " Mushrooms " ; and memorials upon Col. Joseph 
Ward, 1737-1812, Gen. Adin Ballou Underwood, Benjamin Bars- 
tow Torrey, 1906, and Col. Francis Jewett Parker, 1909. 

Mr. Bates became a member of the New England Historic Gene- 
alogical Society December 7, 1870, and continued such until De- 
cember 31, 1885, but was elected a life member at the annual 
meeting in 1897. During his membership he had read papers at 
the Society's meetings, been a contributor to the Register, and had 
prepared numerous memoirs. He was a member of the Committee 
on Papers and Essays from 1877 to 1885, inclusive, and from 1906 
until his death, was elected a member of the CouncU for 1910-1911, 
and had rendered valuable services in bringing the Society more 
prominently before the public since its meetings in Pilgrim Hall. 
He served on various committees, including the special committees 
upon " The question of the circumstances attending the formation 
and execution of the plan of what is known as the Boston Tea 
Party," and " The location of the scion of the Old Elm " on Boston 
Common ; also as historiograper pro tempore. As Chairman of the 
Committee on the Sale of Publications, in 1910, he rendered valu- 
able services. Mr. Bates, accidentally finding some valuable papers 
belonging to the late Daniel Webster, delivered an address upon 
them before the Society in May, 1896, and in 1897 presented it 
with one of them. Among them was a copy of an answer to a re- 
quest that Mr. Webster undertake a lawsuit upon a contingent fee. 
** I do not desire employment in professional matters although I do 
sometimes engage in them. But I never engage in contingencies 
merely, for that woiJd make me a mere party to a lawsuit. — D. W." 

Mr. Bates died, having spent a useful and fruitful life, leaving his 
widow and three daughters, Abby Barstow, Elizabeth Carver, and 
Sarah Loveland Bates, and the final tribute was paid him in the 
church he loved before a representative body. 

310 Descendants of Deacon John Dam [Oct. 

The Society feels that it has lost in Mr. Bates an enthusiastic and 
useful supporter, for he was ready with practical suggestions, apt in 
Conunittee work, and never accepted failure.

[The foregoing entry is from the part of the list assigned to Cran-

woollen cloth. The Sealis family may have been of French or Flemish 
origin, and may have come over to engage in weaving. But " aliens " also 
included Irish and Scotch. — E. F.] 

[On the foregoing entries in the registers is based the following Sealis 

1. John Selys of Biddenden was probably the man who was buried 

there 7 August 1570, reference being made to him as " Father 
Seelis householder." Nothing further is known of him.

Seelis wills it is impossible to settle this point.

at Biddenden 10 Feb. 1609-10. He married, 28 Apr. 1578,

3. Richard Sealis of Biddenden, co. Kent, and Scituate in New Eng- 

land, " planter," was baptized at Biddenden 26 Nov. 1581, and 
died in New England between 17 Sept. 1653 and 26 Mar. 1656. 
His first wife, name unknown, was buried at Biddenden 10 Aug. 
1612. He married there secondly, 4 May 1613, Margery Lea. 
She was probably the Margery Ashenden who married at Bidden- 
den, 27 Nov. 1610, Thomas Lea, buried there 9 Sept. 1612, by 
whom she had a son buried at Biddenden, unbaptized, 27 Feb. 
1611-12, and a son Thomas baptized 14 Mar. 1612-13. There 
are no wills which prove or disprove this point. The records of 
Biddenden do not state whether the women married there were 
widows or spinsters. The date of Margery Sealts's death is un- 
known. Richard Sealis went to New England, and married third- 
ly, at Scituate, 15 December 1637, Widow Eglin Hanford, 
sister of Timothy Hatherly, joining the church 24 December 
following. He was admitted freeman 4 Sept. 1638, and was 
deacon in 1653. He was called "Mr." Sealis in the colony rec- 
ords. A brief abstract of his will appears in the Register, vol. 5,

[From the foregoing wills and entries the following Tilden pedigree has 
been constructed : 

John Ttlden, Senior, of Crotehole in the parish of Ben3mden, the tes- 
tator of 1463, born probably about 1415, died probably shortly after 
making his will. He married Johan, the testator of 1474, who died be- 
tween 15 June 1474 and 1 Apr. 1476. She may possibly have been a 
second wife and mother only of Agnes and Thomas. 

1. John, b. bef . 1446 ; living In 1480. (Was Elizabeth, daughter of 
John Telden, who is mentioned in Joane Telden's will, the daugh- 
ter of this John?) 
il. Robert, b. bef. 1445 ; see below. 

iii. Thomas, b. after 1464 ; m. Makgarbt ; made his will in 1479, 

leaving to wife Margaret, sister Alice, brother John, and the son 
of brother Robert at 18 years, and to Robert's daughter at mar- 
iv. Alice, b. after 1438 ; unm. In 1474. 
V. Aqnes, b. after 1438 ; unm. in 1474. 

Robert Telden of Benynden, bom before 1445, the testator of 1479, 
died between 25 July 1479 and 11 July 1480. He married Alice, who 
was one of his executors. His children were probably very young at his 
death, as he makes provision for any posthumous child. 


1. John, b. after 1461. 

ii. JoHANS, under age and unm. in 1479. 

It seems probable that either from John, son of John of Crotehole, or 
from John, son of Robert and Alice, was descended Richard Telden of 
Benynden and Tenterden, the testator of 1565-6, although no evidence has 
jet been found to prove the connection. 

1. RiCHABD Tilden, yeoman, the testator of 1565-6, born probably at 

Benenden between 1510 and 1520, died between 22 Jan. 1565-6 
and 15 May following. He married Elizabeth, who survived 
him. Was she a sister of Thomas Glover ?

8. Thomas Tilden of Tenterden, the testator of 1616-17, bom probably

was buried at Tenterden 13 May 1593 ; married secondly, 18 Nov, 
1593, Ellen Evernden, widow, of Rolvinden. The date of her 
death is unknown, but Thomas Tilden left a widow Alice, probably 
the mother of his son Freegift. Between 1604 and 1614 Thomas 
Tilden left Tenterden, and moved perhaps to Elast Guilford in 
Sussex, not far across the border from Tenterden, as he owned 
lands there. What reason he had for moving to Wye does not

4. Nathaniel Tilden, baptized at Tenterden 28 July 1583, came to 
New England in the Hercules in March 1634-5, with wife, seven 
children, and seven servants ; settled at Scituate ; and died, proba- 
bly at Scituate, between 25 May and 31 July 1641. He married 
in England Ltdia, who, Savage thinks, was perhaps daughter of 
Thomas Bourne. But as Thomas Bourne was bom about 1581, he 
would have been only twenty-seven when Nathaniel Tilden's eldest 
child was bom, and therefore Savage's conjecture is wrong. The 
"son TOden " referred to in Thomas Bourne's will, made in 1664 
(see Pope's Pioneers of Massachusetts), could not have been Na- 
thaniel, who had been dead twenty-three years, but was probably 
Thomas Tilden, son of Nathaniel and husband of Elizabeth Boume. 
That the wife Lydia was the mother of all of Nathaniel Tilden's 
children is proved by the bequest in Joseph Tilden's will : " to my 
sister Lydia TOden, late wife of my brother Nathaniel Tilden . . . 
and to her two daughters who are married in New England" 
(Waters's Gleanings, vol. 1, p. 71). These daughters were bom in 
1610 and 1613. 

Tenterden, a limb of the Cinque Port of Rye, was a prosperous 
and important place in our ancestors' day, as now, and the principal 
town in the Weald of Kent. Nathaniel Tilden, called " Mr" in 
both the Old and New England records, and " gentleman " in his 
brother Hopestill's will, was a man of importance, mayor in 1 622 
and jurat — a jurat was also justice of the peace — in 1 624, 1 625, 
1627, and 1629. In New England he was also a town officer and a 
ruling elder. (For an abstract of his will see Register, vol. 4, p. 
173. See also, for him and his descendants, Deane, History of Scit- 
uate, 353 £f.)

In Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldtea^ Series 2, vol. 1, p. 333, there 
is printed a Tilden pedigree, taken from the Visitation of IxHidon, 1 687, 
and headed *' Tower Ward, Dolphin Precinct, Bakers' Hall in Harp Lane^ 
Tuesday 2^ August a*> 1687." 

The arms there portrayed are Azure a saltire ermine between four 
pheons or. The crest, a bn^en spear inverted gules, head or, enyironed 
by a snake proper. 

In this pedigree it is stated that there is " No Descent of this Family in 
the Visitations of Kent or Sussex. The Arms he produced are in a Book 
of M' Philpots Intituled Quartered Coats & Crests fo. 80." 

According to this pedigree, as corrected by R. G. Fitzgerald-Uniacke, 
Esq., after comparison with the original in the College of Arms, Richard 
Tilden of Tenterden, co. Kent, h^ a son Jonathan Tilden of Breade, 
CO. Sussex, who died about 1635, aged 46, and had as his second wife 

Alice, daughter of Hall of , near Gillingham, co. Kent. 

The children of Jonathan and Alice (Hall) Tilden were : 

i. Bichabd, citizen and merchant of London, aged 63 In 1687, who m. 
Hannah Millkr, dan. of John of Biggleswaide, co. Bedford, and 
had sons Bichard, aged 22, unm. ; Daniel, aged 16; Samuel^ aged 
14; Gabriel^ aged 13 ; and Jonathan^ aged 9 ; and daughters Han- 
nah, wife of Thanks Holland of Stepney ; and Bote and Mar^, both 
living unm. in 1687. It is this Bichard Tilden, citizen and mer- 
chant of London, who signs the pedigree. 

11. George, of Breade, co. Sussex, aged 60 in 1687, who m. and bad 

HI: Sthan } ^*^ ^'^ ^>t»«»°* »«"•«• 

i. Annb, wife of BoBKRT Gibbon of Beckley, co. Sussex. 
11. Sarah, wife of Thomas Bbdinofhsld of Dover, co. Kent. 

The Jonathan Tilden of this pedigree, with second wife Alice HaU, 
was, however, not a son but a grandson of Richard Tilden of Tenterden ; 
for he is identical with Jonathan, youngest child of John of Tenterden^ 
who was a son of Richard Tilden, our testator of 1565-6. (See above.) 
Jonathan Tilden moved into Sussex, and died when his son Richard was 
only eleven years old, and this may account for the meagreness of the 
latter*8 knowledge regarding his father's family. He does not mention anj 
child or children by his father's first marriage, although we know from the 
Tenterden registers that Jonathan had at least one child (Gregory, bap- 
tized 28 July 1617) by his first wife. 

The Richard TOden who entered this pedigree was a first cousin once 
removed of Nathaniel Tilden, the emigrant to New England, and he evi- 
dently proved to the satisfaction of the College of Arms hb right to bear 
the arms described above. Since he tried to trace his ancestry back to 

1911] Revolutionary Soldiers of York County^ Me. 333 

Richard Tilden, the testator of 1565-6, it is likely that this Richard, his 
great-grandfather, had borne these same arms ; and, if this should be 
proved, then Nathaniel Tilden and hb descendants in the male line would 
be entitled to bear them. — E. F.] 

[For the Tyldens of Milsted, co. Kent, see Berry, Pedigrees ... in the 
County of Kent, pp. 30-31 ; Burke, Commoners, vol. 2, p. 881, and Landed 
(Sentry. The Tyldens of Milsted bore the same arms as Richard Tilden 
of London, but their crest was somewhat dLfferent. According to Berry, 
William Tylden of Wormshill, Kent, who died in 1613 and who was father 
of Richard Tylden, the purchaser of the manor of Milsted, was a descend- 
ant of WOliam Tylden who paid aid for his lands in Kent at the knighting 
of the Black Prince, 20 Edward III, but the intermediate generations are 
not given. (See Hasted, History of Kent, 2d ed., vol. 6, p. 109.) Berry 
says, loc. cit : " The Tyldens are a very ancient family in this county 
[Kent], and appear to have separated into three distinct branches. The 
first, and the most ancient, is here recorded. The second were origi- 
nally of Tenterden, and went into Sussex : mention is made of this family 
in the visitation for that county. One of the Tenterden branch went to 
America, with the Pilgrims, and has founded a numerous family of the 
name in that country, but they spell their name with an % instead of a y. 
The third branch settled at Ifield, in Kent, and spell their name with an t."

1911] Jacob Sherman's Copy Book 343 


Bj William Bradpobd Browns of North Adams, Mass. 

About ten years ago Mr. Brimmer Sherman of Williamstown, Mase., 
found amoDg a collection of supposedly worthless papers the old book 
which is the subject of this sketch. It served originally as a copy-book 
for instruction in the rudiments of arithmetic, is entirely in manuscript, 
and consists of about fifty-eight leaves, 8x13 inches, bound in a homespun 
linen cover somewhat ragged from much use. 

The value of this old book was realized when there were found scattered 
through it, on unused pages, records of an old Rhode Island family, the 
ancestors of Mr. Sherman, telling of their removal from that state to 
Pownal, Yt., giving a detailed record of births, marriages, and deaths, and 
finally, on the last few sheets, furnishing accounts dealing with other early 
settlers of the town. 

The book was owned by JacoV Sherman of North Kingston, R. I., a 
great-grandson of Philip^ Sherman of Providence through Eber,* and Wil- 
Bam* and wife Abigail. His name appears in the list of William Sher- 
man's children as the tenth child, bom 20 Nov. 1783. The maiden name 
of his mother Abigail is not known. 

Pownal, Vt, which is geographically among the Berkshire Hills and 
easily surpasses most of the towns of Berkshire County, Mass., in beauty, 
b an extremely interesting town genealogically. It is really a portion of 
East and West Greenwich and Kingston, R. I., transplanted intact to Ver- 
mont. As the Bates, Sherman, Gs^dner, Myers, Niles, Matteson, Barber, 
Pratt, and other families intermarried in Rhode Island until they were 
practically all related, so did these same families upon removal to Pownal 
continue the same practice, and have continued it ever since. A compari- 
son of the Pownal town records with those of East and West Greenwich 
shows curious results — the similarity of names and the combination of 
names being astonishing.

through the Bissells, Susanna (Bissell) Sherman havrng had two sisters whose mar- 
riages are not known.

Susanna Sherman, who wrote and signed the records printed on page 
844, was sister of John and William Bissell, children of John and Ann Bis- 
sell of North Kingston, R. I. Susanna (Bissell) Sherman died 1 Jan. 
1818, aged 76 (gravestone),^ so that she was bom in 1787 ; John Bissell 
died in 1750, aged 18, so that he must have been bom in 1782 ; and Wil- 
liam Bissell died 6 Feb. 1759, aged 80 years, 5 months, which would 
bring the time of his birth in the second half of 1728. With the excep- 
tion of the month in William's date of birth these results tally with the 
records of three of the five children (only sex mentioned) credited to John 
and Ann Bissell (R. I. Vital Records, vol. 5, North Kingstown, p. 58), 
viz. a daughter born 26 Mar. 1787, a son bom 4 Apr. 1732, and another 
son bom 21 July 1728. 

Job Bissell of Newport, R. I., had children Job, William, Hannah, 
Sarah, Joan, and Susanna, all under twenty-one in 1747. There was no 
John in the family, which disposes of the possibility of Susanna (Bissell) 
Sherman being a member of it. 

Harry Bissell and wife Sarah of Newport had a son bom in Mar. 
1708. He (Harry) was likely a brother of Job of Newport, and could 

e This and the next item were carried oat so minutely evidently in order to famish 
material for problems in computing time. 

A She and ner husband, Jacob Sherman, are buried in the cemetery at Pownal Cen- 
ter. The spot was originally in the town green, but this has been given over entirely 
to the cemetery. Nearby are buried their daughter Experience Bates and many of her

well have been the father of John of North IBQngston who married in 1717-8, 
Job Bissellof Newport might possibly have been the son of Harrj, instead 
of his brother. 

There is on record at Providence, under date of 20 Jan. 1800, a power 
of attorney signed by Jacob Sherman and wife Snsanah of Pownall, Y t^ and 
Jeremiah Yallet and wife Anne of Lee, Mass., stating that Anne and Su- 
sannah are heirs of their brother William BisseU. The Vital Records of 
Lee, p. 234, give the death of "Anne, w. Jeremiah, July 8, 1806," aged 72, 
which age agrees with the date of one more of the family accredited to John 
and Ann Bissell, viz. a daughter bom 4 Mar. 1734. 

The origin of the Rhode Island Bissells is yet to be solved. Assuming 
that they were connected with the Connecticut BisseUs ^ere appears to be 
but one avaUable chance for the connection. John* Bissell (Thomas,* 
John^), bom 26 Jan. 1660, seems untraced. Li " Middlesex, Mass., Fam- 
ilies," p. 1223, it is stated that this John had Samuel and John of North 
Kingston, Job of Newport, and George, but no proof of the assertion is 
offered. The difficulty about this is that the will of Thomas Bissell of 
Connecticut in 1688 does not mention his son John, the inference being 
that he was then dead. 


John* Sherman (Jacob,^ William,* Eber^^ Philip^), who died at Pownal 
80 Sept. 1840, married first, 6 July 1789, Amy Gardner ; and secondly 
Clarissa Mills. « He served in the Revolution.

Benjamin* Sherman, brother of John and William Bissell, married 
first, 31 Dec. 1798, Philena Aikens; secondly, about 1810, Betset 
Clark; and thirdly, 23 June 1819, Merct Briggs. He died 25 Dec. 
1844. He had two sons, George^ and IsaaCy who became wealthy mer- 
diants in New York City, Isaac being the father of Mrs. Bradley Martin, 
the noted society leader. 


The Gardner family, so numerous in Pownal at the present time, de- 
scends from Joseph* (Geoige,* George^) of East Greenwich, R. I., who 
married Hannah Briggs. 'Hie names of all their children are not known, 
but two of them, George, who certainly was a son, and Benjamin, beyond 
doubt another son, came to Pownal. 

George^ Gardner married at Newport, R. I., 11 Nov. 1737, Alice 
Browne, daughter of Tobias. He died 10 Aug. 1801, aged 94 years, 
leaving a will in which he mentioned the eight children not€^ below. In 
1752 he sold his West Greenwich lands and settled at Beekman's, N. Y., 
living there until 1 762, when he made his purchase of Pownal lands. It 
was he who laid out the settling lots for the proprietors of Pownal in 

In 1779 George Gardner became involved in a dispute with the town 
proprietors. As their derk and the keeper of their records he was accused 
of removing certain sheets from the land records. He was finally prose- 
cuted and forced to leave town,, and his lands were seized. Gardner re- 
moved to Hancock, Mass., where he remained until about 1790, when he 
returned to Pownal to spend his last days. Under date of 27 June 1782 
there appears on the town record this report : 

Your Committee to whom was referred the petition of George Gardner Esq. 
of Hancock in the State of Mass. begs leave to report, that it appears that a 
judgement was obtained before the Honorable Superior Court by a Conmiittee 
of the Proprietors of the town of Pownal in 1779, for catting a number of leaves 
out of the Proprietors books, for which without doubt the Honorable Superior 
Court thought they had a sufficient reason, but It does not appear to your com- 
mittee from the witnesses that have been heard by them that said Greorge Gard- 
ner ever did cut out all or any of the leaves that are cut out of the Proprietors 
books, and they recommend that the aforesaid Committee who obtained a judge- 
ment against said George Gardner and a sum of money in damages for cutt&g 
out a number of leaves from the Proprietors Books, pay the same again unto 
the aforesaid George Gardner except the lawful cost occasioned by said suit.

The Rev. Elder Benjamin^ Gardner was an interesting resident in Pow- 
nal in its early days. In 1765 he sold his West Greenwich lands for 


348 Jacob ShermatCs Copy Booh [Oct. 

£4000. On Pownal records, under date of Dec 1789| i^pears the fol- 

Reporting of Ck>mmittee on granting Ben]. Gardner his claim for a gift of 

In or about 1763 Elder Gardner then a Pnbllc preacher and an ordained Elder 
of the Baptists so called remoTed into the town of Pownal to reside and waa 
duly appointed to preacli and administer in all the rights and ordinances of thai 

He had evidently claimed a deed of glebe land for his services, and his 
claim was allowed. 

Rev. Benjamin Gardner died 10 Dec. 1793, aged 78 (gravestone), and 
his wife Jemima died 5 Feb. 1806, aged 82 (gravest<me). His will names 
one son, Benjamin, Jr., and two daughters, Anna Stuart and Jemima 
Williams. Comparing his age, close companionship with, and the imA 
that he went bond for George Gardner at the time of his litigation 
with the proprietors of Pownal, there seems to be no reasonable donbt that 
they were brothers. 

George* Gardner, bom 3 June 1739, died 8 Sept 1839, well over 
100 years of age — his gravestone calling him 102. He married Ann Mtbes 
of West Greenwich. He appears from the land records to have left 
Beekmans in 1763, the year after his Either. His first daughter. Amy, 
has been considered the first white child bom in Pownal— a tradition which 
seems to have some basis of tmth.

The Gardners, with the exception of the Rev. Benjamin, were all Tories 
in the Revolutionary war. After the batde of Bennington they were 
levied upon for supplies for the troops, and gave most grudgingly. 

In Jacob Sherman's cobbling accounts, written partly by himBelf and 
partly by his wife Susanna, appear many items of genealogical interest. 
In his settlement for work done for Isaac Buckling, 179S-99, are named 
'* yourself," David, Silvenes, Body, Lucindy and, later, Hannah, evidently 
another daughter. In David Akin's account, 1798, shoes were made for 
Sarah; in Silas Pratt's, shoes for wife, Zadoc, and Nehemiah ; Isaac 
Grover (1797) ; in Josiah Donning's (1796), shoes for Aling, Limon, Josiah, 
Ebenezer, Elmer, and Martin; in Virgil Page's (1795), Simon, David, 
Benjamin, and Eanis ; in John Sherman's (1796), shoes for Gamer Gard- 
ner, Sarah, Susanna, Jacob, Greorge, Amy, William, Abel, and ^ Granny 


The item about '' Granny Mias " is interesting. She was Mary Monio, 
daughter of Joseph of Bristol, R. L, bom 23 Oct. 1715, died at Pownal 
Nov. 1800, aged 86 (gravestone), the grandmother of Amy Grardner (wife 
of John Sherman), and widow of Oliver Myers of West Greenwich who 
died 29 Aug. 1769. All the sons of Oliver Myers settled at Pownal, aiid 
their sister Ann was the wife of Greorge Grardner of that place. Their 
mother also evidendy moved to Powniu in her old age. At the date of 

1911] Records from Bible of Jonathan Wilson 349 

the account in 1796 she was aged about 81 years. 

Oliver Myers was son of Nicholas ** Mias " of Little Compton, R.L, and 
his wife Elizabeth Nichols. His will, dated 7 Aug. 1769 at West Green- 
wich, names sons Oliver, Hezekiah, Nicholas, and Gideon ; and daughters 
Ann Grardner, Elizabeth Howard, and Mary Myers. All these, except 
the last two, came to Pownal. Oliver Myers, Jr., married Elizabeth Niles, 
whose brothers were also Pownal settlers.

« Widow Alice Walker " who had two daughters, Relief and Linda» who cared for 
their step-father in bis last years ; and of *' Sister Rebecca Rasseil " and ber husband. 
But chiefly I wish to know the name of the mother of the second Jonathan Wilson, 
Rebecca — — who married secondly — — Cutler, who perhaps outliTed her. 
Is she the Rebecca Russell who married a Jonathan Wilson at Thonopson, 31 Kay 
1738 (Connecticut marriages) ? And if so, who were her parents ? This Jonathan 
Wilson was a son of James who married Margaret (Russ) Peters. James being the 
•on of John and Hannah (James) Wilson of Lexington.
