CHARLES EDWIN HURD 

By Edward Henry Clement, A.M., Litt.D., of Cambridge, Mass. 

Charles Edwin Herd, 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, Bjornstjernc Bjornson, and a 
translator of and commentator upon the plays of Ibsen. The 
threads of our New England descent extend back to the common 
sources of .all the Northern peoples of Europe. There is a kinship 
of spirit in their free, representative political ideas and institutions. 
It was alwavs a fascinating diversion for him to trace these liues 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. 

Mr. Hurd was bora in Croydon, X. H., June 15, 1833. His 
father, a farmer of long descent in that region, traced back to Sec- 
retary Rawson 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 his hold on journalism. This combination 
of talents stood him in good stead during the Civil TTar, 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 discoverv and greetkiff 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 cultuie 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 accumidated 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 after, 
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 Broicn of Middleloicn, Conn* 5 

His loyalty to Boston was such that, although he was most com- 
fortably provided for and delightfully situated in Brooklyn, X. Y., 
he insisted on removing with his household god3 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, X. H., for burial. Mr. Hurd is survived by his widow, 
who is a native of Nova Scotia, one daughter, Mrs. Morrill TV. 
Gaines (Grace Marguerite Hurd) of Brooklyn, X. Y., and three 
sons, Charles W., William J., and Reginald HurcL 



JAMES BROWN OF MIDDLETOTTX, COXX. 

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

The Register (vol. 62, p. 334) contains a very brief and incomplete 
account of the descendants of James 1 Brown of MkLdletown, and while 
his male descendants were not numerous, the female lines of descent are 
quite the reverse. 

Many years since the vrriter and his father traced the descendants of 
Hugh 2 (James 1 ), 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 1 Brown "was 
a Scotchman from Edinburg and a merchant." Various stories have come 
down through different lines, and Xew 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 Xew York, and had to work for the ship'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 '* Jame3 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 countrv buvinir horses and brin<nnir 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 
Broughtox, daughter of John and Hannah (Allis), born 10 Feb. 1700 
(n. 8.), died 29 Oct. 17.5-4. He lived two or three years at Windham, and 
then removed to Middletown, Conn., where on 2 Dec. 1742 he bought 
land of Jabez Hamilin, on which he built his home and in which he lived 
and died, hi 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 during 
our natural lives." In a vail 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 secondly to Mary (Dowd, probably), but of this mar- 
riage no record has been found. She died 23 Apr. 1767, aged 6'J. During 
his last years he lived with his son Nathaniel, as did also the brother John, 
who from the effects of a fall in childhood was imbecile through a Ions; 
life. a 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 Cemetery in Middletown. '

23 May 1808, aged 2, and perhaps others. 

3. Samuel 2 Brown' (James 1 ), born in Middletown, Conn., 28 Aug. 

1726, married, 5 Oct. 1747, Hannah Landon, daughter of Judge 
Samuel and Bethia (Tuthill), b born 2 Nov. 1724. He lived in 
Guilford, Conn., until 1802-3, when he removed to Madison (then 

* [n 1880 the vital records of Edinburgh, Scotland, were searched, and the following 
record was found, which would appear to be, probably, the baptism of James of Mid- 
dletown : 

" 1673 18 February, Thomas Brown Merchant & Margaret Wallace a son named 
James Witnesses James Brown Merchant James McCline Merchant, John Sympson, 
Alexander McAlexander, 6c John Wallace Cordiuer." 

The above is evidently old style dating, and reduced to new style would become 
28 Feb. 1674. His age at death was, therefore, 96 years 9 months and 10 days.

Mott's company, raised for the defence of the harbor of New

1911] First Ownership of Ohio Lands 51 



FIKST OWNERSHIP OF OHIO LA^DS 

By Albiox Morris Dyer, A.M., of Cleveland, Ohio 
[Continued from Vol. 64, p. 369] 

The lists of names of first owners of lands within the limits of the State 
of Ohio, as proposed on an earlier page of this writing, here follow. They 
are constructed for the purpose of this publication by comparison of the 
several documents mentioned. 77 

First Owners of 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." 78 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. 79 These purchasers received certificates of payment of 
purchase money issued by the Treasurer of the United States, 60 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. 81 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, 1735. 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. 

77 Cf. Register for October, 1910, p. 369. 

78 As proclaimed according to Act of Congress passed September 22, 1783, entited 
11 An ordinance prohibiting settlement and purchase of certain lands." 

79 Cf. Register for April, 1910, p. 268. 

80 Cf. note 8 i, infra, section 4. Advertisement of the Board of Treasury for the sale. 

81 An entry in the Journal of John Matthews (Hildreth's Pioneer History of the Ohio 
Valley, p. lbS) is especially interesting in this connection: 

November 30, [17>7] A pa'rt of this month I have been on tho We*t side of the Ohio with Mr 
Simpson and Colonel Martin, assisting them in the survey of tne lands they bought at the public 
sales in New York... 

There is no record of a sale in the name of Simpson. James .Simpson was Surveyor 
for the State of Maryland in th<- Geographer's Department, but Capt. Absalom Martin, 
Surveyor for the State of Xcw Jersey, purchased and occupied as his permanent home 
two fractional lots on the Ohio River bottoms opposite Wheeling; land which he bad 
himself surveyed 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. 56, p. 173), and his 
place on the Ohio River was the landing place from Wheeling, now known as Martin's 
Ferry, Ohio. 

VOL. LXT. 4

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. s - The plats of the surveyors show the exteriors 
of the townships as surveyed, on which are lines drawn at right angles to 
represent the 06 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 : 
Eanges ; westward from 1 to vn 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 1 at the southeast corner. 83 

From this data not only the names of owners but the situation of each 
lot, according to present day geography, may be ascertained 84 and designated 
by modern names of political divisions, county and township. The region 
covered by the seven Ranges of Townships may readily be traced on a map 

8t Many pages of this volume 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 members 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, 17S5. 

83 Lots or sections in the Seven Ranges of Townships are not numbered as in the 
later surveys. According to the terms of the ordinauce of May 20, 1765 : 

The plats of the town-hip;, respectively shall be marked by subdivisions into lots of one mile 
square or 040 acres, in the same, direction a> the external lines and numbered from 1 to 36, always 
beginning the succeeding range of the lots with the number next to that with which the pre- 
ceding one concluded, 

•while the law of May 18, 1706, required that 

the sections shall be numbered respectively, beginning with number one, in the northeast 
•ectiou, and proce< ding west and east alternately, through the township, with progressive num- 
bers till the thirty-jiXtli be completed. 

Thus it happens that some of the townships of Columbiana, Carroll, and Stark 
counties, 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. 

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

The admirable quality of these Lands, and the favorable climate in which they are situated, 

are too well known to need description. The condition* of sale are as follows, viz. 

1st. The townships or fractional parts of town-hips throughout the different ranges, will be 
sold either entire or in h.ts in alternate order; that is to say, where a township or fractional 
part of u town-hip is ?oid entire, the next will be sold in lots, agreeably to the ordinance of the 
20th of May, 1755. 

<:d. The lauds are not to be sold under a dollar per acre, payable in gold or silver, or f.ny of 
the securities of the United States. 

3d. The purchasers are to pay the charges of survey, which are to be estimated at thirty-six 
dollar- in specie, or certificate as ai'ore.-aid for every town-hip; and in the same proportion for 
fractional parts of town-hips or lots; this payment to be made at the sales, and in case of fail- 
ure, the lauds to be again exposed to public auction. 

4ih. One third of the purchase money is to be paid at the time of purchase; and the remain- 
ing two thirds in three mouths after the uate of the sale; on which payment a certificate shall

of Ohio 85 by following the East and West line from the intersection of the 
Pennsylvania western boundary and the Ohio River westward across seven 
ranges to the northwest corner of Rose Township, Carroll County (Tp. 
No. 16), 86 and thence by a meridian line southward across Tuscarawas, 
Guernsey, Noble, and Washington counties to a point where the meridian 
crosses the Ohio River about a mile east of the city of Marietta, which is 
in Township 2 of Range viii. 67 The lots purchased at the New York sale 
are all within the four counties, Columbiana, Jefferson, Monroe, and Bel- 
mont, and the initials of these counties are used in the following list to in- 
dicate the situation of the several lots — closer designations being expressed 
by names of township, or otherwise.

is given to receive from the Commissioners of this Board a proper titie; provided, that if the 
second payment is not made at the time above specified, the first payment is to be lorfeited, and 
the land on which the forfeit accrued be again set up for sale. 

5th. The platts of the townships will be marked by subdivisions into lots of one mile square, 
or 6-10 acres, and numbered from .1 to 66; and out of each township, Lot No. S, 11, 20 and •*.», are 
to be reserved for future sale; Lot No. 1(5, for the maintenance of I'ublic Schools within the 
respective town-hip, as many lots of the same number as shall be found therein. There will 
also be reserved to the United States one third part of all gold and silver, lead and copper mines. 

Proper maps and descriptions of the lauds will be exhibited at the time aud place of sule, and 
the sales will coutinue from day to day until the whole are sold.

85 The latest map of Ohio, issued by the General Land Office, bears the date 1910. 

86 There are two Townships No. 16 in Carroll County, the northernmost being out- 
side the Seven .Ranges of Townships. 

87 The Seven Ranges of Townships are first shown on the map entitled: 

A Map of the Federal Territory from the Western Boundary of Pennsylvania to the Scicto 
River, laid down from the latest informations and divided into Townships and fractional parts 
of Townships agreeably to the ordinance of the Ilonble Congress passed in May, 1765, 

which, according to the Phillips List of Maps of. America, p. 626, is the "Map to ac- 
company Cutler's ' Explanation of the map of the federal lauds, confirmed by the 
treaties of 1764. ..Salem, 1787.' " The famous map issued by Joel Barlow for European 
exploitation of the Scicto Company's lands, entitled : " Plan des achates des Compaguies 
de r Ohio" (Cf. Winsor, vol. vii, p. 532; the Library of Congress has a fine copy 
of the Barlow map recently picked up by Mr. Phillips in Paris), shows the region 
marked: "Sept ranges de Municipalitere acquis par des individus, et occupes depuis 
1786," and described as " llabite et defriehe," which, considering the date of Barlow's 
activity, 1788, is surprising. 

A "Plat of the Seven Ranges of Townships being part of the Territory of the United 
States N. W. of the River Ohio which by kite act of Congress are directed to be sold... W. 
Barker, Sculp." issued for use of the second sale of lots, shows the survev as altered to 
fit the latest land laws, 17bb. 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 or' the 
American Atlas as late as 1818. (A reproduction from an original print is in Avery's 
History, vol. vi, betw. pp. 4U6 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 the Seven 
Ranges of Townships us extending northerly to the base line of the Western Reserve, 
whereas the writings of Col. Whittlesey on this subject, in this and other publications, 
correctly describe the Ohio surveys. The strip of land, twenty-live miles wide, be- 
tween the Seven Ranges of Townships and the Western Reserve, was surveyed in 1891 
by extending the ranges northward from the East and West line to the 41° of latitude, 
which was forbidden by earlier resolution of Congress, May 9, 1786. 

b - Dohrmau [Oorhman] is the Portuguese refugee honored by Congress (Land 
Laws or' 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 York. No doubt he attended the sale and made the lirst 
purchase of land on the public domain. Congress voted to him a township of laud in 
the Seven Ranges of Townships, and he went west to take possession of his property, 
lie lived and died at Steubenvilie, Jefferson County, where he lies buried, and where 
his descendants still reside. There are many traditions iu the family concerning

M Alexander Macomb and William Edgar, of the city of New York, memorialized 
Congress, praying 

that they may be permitted to complete the payment of the purchase money of a quantity of 
land, in the territory ot 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 tor granting to 
the memorialist* so much of the said land, a9 will be in proportion which the sum heretoiore 
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- 

fresg, 1st Session, p. 435), and reported upon bv the committee on claims, January 30, 
793 (5th Cong. 2d Sess., p. 179), and on the 30th of April following (p. 43S-439) it was 
resolved in the affirmative to agree with the report, which was in part as follows ; 

Several of the lots for which the petitioners made their contract having been sold at I'ittsburgh, 
in pursuance of the act of the eighteenth of May, one thousand seven hundred and ninety-six, 
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 to fulfil their contract, 
excepting thut their funds were otherwise employed, and as the United States must hive in« 
curred considerable expenses in the negotiation when the contract was made with the petition- 
ers, the committee can find 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 grunted."

Land Owners on the Muskingum 
"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 the 
Committee of Congress for the purchase of the tract of land on the Mus- 
kingum Riyer, west of the seyenth range of townships. Papers were 
eigned for this purchase, and for the Scioto Riyer 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 the com- 
pany, in number about a thousand, one numbered subdivision in each allot- 
ment for each share. Plans v.'ere formed at a series of meetings, beginning 
August 29, 1787, and extending beyond the date of signature to July 7, 
17*s ? for the distribution of these shares of the lands to the proprietor* by 
a method of drafts, the details of which appear in the form of resolutions 

• These names : William Bowne, John Crawford, and Richard Piatt do not appear 
in the Schedule of Sales.

60 First Ownership of Ohio Lands [Jan. 

Lists of the drafts kept by Col. May furnish means of obtaining the names 
of the proprietors of the Ohio Company, owners of lands on the Muskingum 
River, 1 788-1792. 10 ' They present the drafts by name and number of the 
proprietor, the agency from which the shares were obtained, and the 
various numbers of the lots drawn against each name. An early list, 
dated 1788, gives names about in order of the alphabet, but a later list, 
1706, 101 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, 102 the corrections taken from the attested copy being 
inserted in each case in brackets. 

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

p. 59. [May 27, 17SS] A3 to our surveying, buildings, etc., they are in a very backward way. 
Little appears to be done, ;md a great deal of time and money misspent. . . . 

p. f>0. [May 28, 1"SS] The director* and agent-* present agreed to lease the ministerial 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 he 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 eir/ht-acre 
lots were drawn at a distance* Went this afternoon to survey the ten-acre lots, and drew for 
them in the evening. Colonel Sproat drew No. 9; Varnum, 10; May, 11; Sargent, 12; Parsons, 
13, etc. . . . 

p. 63. [June 7, 17 s *] General Varnum and his party are making difficulties about the eight'

The ration* are not good. General Putnam did not strictly adhere to order* ziven at Brackett's 
tavern in Boston, and Rice's tavern at i'rovidence. I think I foresee difficulties of a more 
6erious nature. 

p. 63. [June 9, 17881 . . . Met to settle difficulties respecting the eight-acre lots; but we 
could not agree, and adjourned until to-morrow, at 8 o'clock a.m. . . . 

p. 66. [June 10, 17^*] . . . Met this morning, according to adjournment, and after much 
debate and discus-don, agreed to cut up our commons into three-acre lots, to be drawn for in 
July. This has appeased the minds of the people. We also appointed officers of police.

order at Providence, "rh March. Chose a' committee to make preparation for drawing the city 
lots. Entered into several debates, and at 2 o'clock adjourned until Monday, 7th hist., at 
8 o'clock in the morning, for the purpose of drawing the city lots, and transacting such other 
business ns may be thought neces.-ary for the establishment of our infant settlement. . . .

[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 Gove, 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 ireo 
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, born 1610, wife of Capt. Hopestili Fos- 
ster, daughter of James Bate ami sister of Margaret Bate, second wife of 
Gibson. M Cousin Hopestili Foster jun. " was her son. " Cousin Thomas 
Dampford" was Thomas 3 Danforth, Jr., born 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 k * 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," born in 1666, was son of Eleazer Farr, who married Mary 
Preston, daughter of Daniel Pre-ton and granddaughter of William Pres- 
ton, who married Elizabeth Sale, sister of Gibson's hrst 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 Eate, 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, born 
in 1604, sister of Gibson's first wife. How William Lane was "brother " 

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

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 Witliington's wife," was daughter of Daniel Preston and grand- 
daughter of William Preston.

1911] Genealogical Research in England 67 

Of Gibson's " honored friends," Got. Leverett's wife, Sarah Sedgewick, 
belonged to a family located at Woburu, 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 
Zachariah Whitman and Sarah Biscoe, baptized at Chesham Nov. 160*6, 
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. 
Research in Bucks may unearth the Whitman ancestry. J. G. Bartlett.] 

Sale or Bledow, 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 born 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 born 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 li^ht on the Sale 
family of Chesham, which furnished the emigrant to New England.] 

The Will of James Sale sen. of Biedlowe in the County of Bucks., 
yeoman, 17 Jan. 1608. To be buried in the parish of Biedlowe. To the

To daughter Alice, wife of Robert Cattle, 40s. To daughters Isabel!, wire

of Bucks, 1600. 88.)

Great Wenhdm 
Samuel Cooke & Dorcas Bradstreet, 28 Sept, 1682 

[The will of John Bradstreet of Capel, dated 1610, mentions a nephew 
Humphrey Bradstreet, probably the emigrant Humphrey Bradstreet, aged 
40, who came in 1634 from Ipswich in the sliip 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. 6o, 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 born to Humfrey Bradstreet of Gislingham in 
1568 and 1571. I also believe that the son Simon Bradstreet, mentioned 
in the will 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 Horbliug, Lincolnshire, where the Gov- 
ernor was born in 1603, and that before this he held a living at Hinderclay, 
co. Suffolk, which is only live miles from Gislingham. (For the will of 
Rev. Simon Bradstreet of Ilorbling see Register, vol. 48. p. 170.) There 
were Bradstreet families at Buxhall and vicinity, but there is no apparent 
connection with the Gislingham and Capel families. E. F.j 

[The above .-UL^estion, that 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, Bcntley, and Wenham are adjacent parishes in Suf- 
folk, about five miles southwest of Ipswich, ami Gislingham is some thirty 
miles north of them. A Robert Bradstreet was taxed in Capel, and a 
Henry Bradstreet in Bcntley, in the Suffolk wSubsidy 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 Edmund 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 B'327 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. 

These three parishes are contiguous and adjacent to Buxhall, which is 
in the centre of Suffolk and just halt' 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 Gislingliam and south an equal distance to Capel.

[George Barrell came to Boston in 1G37 from St. Michael's, Wangford 
Hundred, Suffolk (Register, vol. 61, p. G9). By St. Michael's is meant the 
parish of South Elmham St. Michael's. There are six South Ehnhams : 
South Elmham All Saints-cum-St. Nicholas, South Elmliam 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 
church. The only other Barrell will found is of too early a date in the six- 
teenth 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. E. F.J

REVOLUTIONARY SOLDIERS OF YORK COUXTY, 

MAINE 

Communicated by Geokoe Walter Chamberlain, 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 affidavit of 
his services and present conditions for record in the Court and to be 
transmitted to the office of the Secretary of War. These affidavits 
in York County were arranged alphabetically and recorded in the 
Common Pleas Records, vol. 38, pp. 254-506, by Daniel Sewall, 
clerk. 

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 the 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 ; Hollis, the present towns of Hollis 
and Dayton ; Saco, the present city of Saco and the town of Old 
Orchard ; while the town of Arundel has been changed to Kenne- 
bunkport. 

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

1911] Proceedings of the X. B. Hist. Gen. Society 83 



PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC 
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY 

By John Alkp.ee, Recording Secretary 

Boston, Massachusetts. 4 May, 1910. A stated meeting of the Society was 
held at Pilgrim Hall. H Beacon Street, at 2.30 p.m.. 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 L. Chapman. D.D.. LL.li., Professor of English Literature and Lan- 
guage, Bowdoin College, and Vice-President of the Maine Historical Society, 
read a paper on Joel Barlow and Jtis Columbiad, in which he told of Barlow's 
interesting career as a patriot, man of affairs, diplomat, and man of letters, and 
commented on the fact that there still remains against Barlow the hostility born 
of political prejudices, the occasion of which has long siuce been forgotten. 

A vote of thanks of the Society was extended to Professor 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. 

5 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 

Voted— That the New Euglaud Historic Genealogical Society accepts the be- 
quest of the late George Sumner Mann, subject to the conditions imposed in his 
will, and the Treasurer of this Society be hereby authorized to receipt for the 
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 
Society. 

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, amons others. Solomon 
Franko, who was in Bostou in 1649, the first recorded Jew in the present United 
States, Judah Monis. for forty years the instruetor in Hebrew at Harvard Col- 
lege, and Harm 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 Monis at North borough. Mass., 
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 re^eareh. 

Frank B. Sanborn of Concord spoke of Samuel Gordon's book on the Excel- 
lency of the Jewish Character ami the Christianization of Jerusalem, which was 
written in Boston at the time Franko was here. It was attributed for years to 
Milton, but Gordon's authority is now proven. 

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

2 November. A stated meeting of the Society was held at 14 Beacon Street, 
at 2.30 p.m., President Baxter presiding. 

The records of the October meeting were read and approved. The reports 
of the Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Council were ac- 
cepted. 

By ballot the following were elected members of the Nominating Committee : 
Joseph Gardner Bartlett, Virtrinia Hall, Arthur Greene Loriug, Waiter Kendall 
"Watkins, and Frank Ernest Woodward.

84 ' JS r otes [Jan. 

Mr. George Francis Dow, Secretary of the Essex Institute, Salem, spoke on 
Ten English Towns, which lie visited recently, and whose names are borne by 
towns hi 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 r 
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. 



NOTES 

It having como 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 NO genealogical representatives in this 
country or in England, nor is it in any w r ay connected with any 
publications otner than those that it issues over its own name 
at 18 Somerset Street, Boston. 

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

King. Browne. — In Phillimore sad Gurnoy's Buckinghamshire Parish Regis- 
ters, vol. 6, pp. 10, 11. occur the following marriages at High Wycombe: 
Daniel King fi Eliz. Guy 4 Oct. 1621 

Chaddus Browne & Kii/. Sharparowe 11 Sept 1626 

It was surmised by Mr. Henry F. Waters, who furnished the information to 
Mr. Rufus Kim: 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 1653, 
being bound for New England. (Cf. Register, vol. 33, pp. 375-6.) 

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 F. Greenlaw; cf. Chad Browne Memorial, 
pp. 7-8, and Waters's Genealogical Gleanings, vol. 1, p. 708.)

Levetcf.tt.— (Cf. Register, vol. 35, pp. 272-5. 345-56.) 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. 03, p. 150; Papers, vol. 37, p. 
49.) Doubtless the scrivener who wrote tbe petition accepted it as a matter oi 
course 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 tiiat of Sir ; hence the address " S r John 
Leveritt, 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 tiles (1612) it appears that Wampus brought over the letter himself, and 
arrived in the li 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 River, hi 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 
evidently an ancient village site, as during the past few 3 ears my son has quite 
thoroughly searched this locality and unearthed a number of stone implements, 
chips, andpottery, as have others iu former years. The site of the village woidd 
seem to be in the* little dell still partly existing in the ravine just north of Glen 
Road on the Wellesley side of the river at Newton Lower Falls, and between the 
Metropolitan Park reservation and Glen Road. The brook rising at Indian 
Spring, and that from the Hundreds, enter the river near this spot.

SrrxN*EY, Randall, Norman. — Pope's Maine and New Hampshire Pioneers, if 
published 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 griev- 
ously wronged her by marrying her without having been divorced from his wife 
in England; whereupon Margery'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 Feruald, 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 166'.). Thomas Spiimey does not mention Mary in his will. 



8Q Notes [Jan. 

although it was witnessed by a Mary Fernald; but he had previously 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 record. 
Entries with comma and ampersand are common, as for instance, " Thomas Spin- 
ney, & Margery his wife," who are the grantors ; but there is no ampersand in de- 
fining Mary's parentage. The entry reads : •• 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 course all the facts must have been well 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 au 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 Fernald'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 as Thomas was a good 
father to her. * Charles Thornton Libby.

HorFREY. — 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 b , as pub- 
lished in the Visitation of Dorset, 1623, p. 57. He is recorded there as son and 
heir of l * Michael Humfrey of Chaldon in com. Dorset.'' and aged 20 years in 
1623, with wife Elizabeth, daughter of " Herbert Pelhani 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 1541, 
which would make him about R> 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 1630, as shown in -i 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 )btain, 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 1G3-1. but among those "all sithence deceased" (Register, vol. 61, 
p. 279). Further along in the list we find " John Humfrev, gent., living in Xew 
England." 

I think 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. 

* The arms in the seal following the signature appear to be the same as those accom- 
panying the Humfrey pedigree in the Visitation of Dorset, p. 57, viz. " Gules, a cross- 
croslet botonne argent, charged on each end with three escallops sable," and marked 
"Kespited for proof of his right to this coate." — Editor.

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

Manor 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 siren rise to various explanations, many of them 
fanciful. The same expression was used in the grant by James I in 1008 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 Hubert 
Ingpen. K. C, in a note to page 25 of a recent edition of "Master Worsted'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,' 177cS). 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 capite 
by knights-service. The kins was empowered by statute 35 Hen. VIII. c. II, as 
to the lesser monasteries, and by statute 37 Hen. VIII, c. 20, as to all manors 
and land not exceeding 10s. per auu. in value, and by whatever title acquired, to 
grant the same to be holden of the king, either by knights-service in capite. or 
by fealty in socage or bur2a<re and not in capite. Subsequently by statute 1 
Edw. VI, c. 1, it was declared that all estates, without any limit as to value, 
holden of the king his heirs and successors by k nights-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 capite or as tenure in ca- 
pite. Thenceforth Crown grants by Letters Patent, and even statutory grants of 
Crown lauds (see 27 Eliz., c. 27), are frequently found to be in form k Tenendum 
de nobis et heredibus nostris in libera et commune sociag fldelibat tantum ut de 
maueiio nostris de East Greenwich in Com. Kantiae.' The tenendum l as of our 
Manor of Ea>t 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. 1, 
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 that 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' (Polsin's k Law and Lawyers.' 185S, p. 177). The correspond- 
ing stock manor of the Duchy of Lancaster was the Manor of Enfield in the 
County of Middlesex. 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 32 Hen. VIII, c. 21." James W. Hawes.

English Ancestry of Presedekt Fillmore. — The ancestry of President 
Millard Fillmore was investigated in ls57 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 Fillmore, mari- 
ner, who marri.nl. in 1701. Abigail Tilton. anddied 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 England), emigrated first to Kova Scotia, and that subsequently John 












I 



Notes [Jan, 



settled in the colony of Massachusetts; Unfortunately Dr. Woodward did not say 
on what 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 Marcus 
Filmer* Bart., it would appear that he thought that 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 Illustrated 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 this probability is that 
there is record of a John Filmore sailing from the adjoining port of Topsham 
in the early eighteenth century. He may be identical with the mariner John 
Fillmore, but there is nothing to show it, and so far the English origin remains 
unknown. 

We have two groups of the name. The Filmers, sometimes Filmore and es- 
pecially Finimore, settled in Kent in the 14th century, and the Filmores of Devon 
settled there at least as early as the 16th century. Hitherto 1 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, born in 17'j2. 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 uncle 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 iuquire 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 Record Society. 
Thus we have : 

Ambrose Comforte, Battle, Sussex 1561 

Richard Comferett. Newport Pond, Essex 

and Bishop's Stortford. Hertfordshire 1588 

Elizabeth widow of Thomas Comfort of 

Keyston, Huntingdonshire 1626 

Thomas Comforte, jun., smith of Keidore 

Huntingdonshire 1627 

Richard Comfort alias Comport, yeoman, 

of Whitechapel, Middlesex 1628 

Thomas Comforte, yeoman, of Ashe Kent 1023 
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 Willesborou^h in 17s4. and pos- 
sibly, too. of Comfort Fillmore who married in America in 1703. It must be 
borne in mind that in Kent there are two villages named Ashe, one in the west- 
ern part of that county a few miles from London, and the other in the north- 
eastern part near the Isle of Thauet. about twenty miies from WillesbQrOusrh. 

Though obviously we have here nothing more than a po-sible 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. wills, it will be easier to trace

and death of those who married into the Beaman family, and brings tiie 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.

according to the plan adopted by the Register. All dates prior to 1742 con- 
form to the old style then in use. The descendants of the daughters of the 
Cady line are given as far as their grandchildren, and the place and date of birth 
of person:- marrying into the Cady family are given, if possible, and often an 
outline 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 Revolution 
bearing the Cady name. 

Colcord Genealogy. Descendants of Edward Colcord of New Hampshire, 1630 
to 1908, by Doaxe Blood Colcord, B.S., M.D., late Prof, of Chemistry, 
Kansas Medical College. Creswell, Ore. Published by Mahlox J. Colcord, 
Coudersport, Pa. 1908. Press of Potter County Journal, Coudersport, Pa. 
8° pp. 124-42. 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 Edward Colcord 
or Colcott who came to New England. 1030-1. from co. Hants. England. Only 
families bearing the Colcord name are included in the body of the book, but lhsts 
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 iudexes, one of the Colcord given names and another 
of names other than Colcord. 

William Coaldicell, Caldwell or Coldwell, of England, Massachusetts. Connecti-

his dcsceiidants. by Charles T. Caldwell, M.D. Washington, D. C. 1910. 
Press of Judd and Detweiler, Inc.. Washington, D. C. S° pp. 82. 
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 Canldwell 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 srenealoirical matter with great care, insisting upon 
dates, places 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. 

Copeland Gleanings, 1651-1005, compiled by Lelaxd Stanford Copelaxd, 
Middletown Springs, Vermont. The Tourist Print, Southern Pines, 1910. 16° 
pp. 14. 

A branch of the Copeland family which removed to Middleton, Vt., and thence 
to Russell, Kan., is recorded in this little publication. The line is as follows. 
Lawrence. Benjamin (of Braintree, Mass.), Moses of Mansfield, Mass., Moses 
of Middleton, Edwin of Middleton Springs, Vt., and Charles Paul of Russell, 
Kan. In addition to sketches of the lives of these men, short notices are given 
of the families of their wives. The compiler is the son of Charles Paul Cope- 
land. 

Beunions of the Durell family, arranged by Harold Clarke Pcrell. A.B., from 
the books of the secretarv, "Walter G. Durell, of Strong, Maine. Cambridge,

Benjamin Durell was a soldier in the Revolution. His son Xathaniel was the 
founder of the Kingfield, Maine, branch of the family. The compiler does not 
claim that he is publishing a complete family record, but his little pamphlet

contains what he has been able to gather during his visits to Kingfield the past 
three years. Dates are given by years only. 

Some account of Copt. John Frazier and his descendants, with notes on the West 
and ChecJdey families, by Josiah Granville Leach, LL.B. Printed for pri- 
vate circulation by J. B*. Lippincott Co., Philadelphia, 1910. 8° pp. <i+lo9, 
illus. 

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 eve, 
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 Xalboro Frazier; the Cheekley record the ancestry 
of Sarah Imrraham, 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, born Harriet Morgan Harrison. 

Genealogy of some descendants of Dr. Samuel Fuller of the Mayflower, compiled 
by William Hyslop Fuller of Palmer. Mass., to which is added J. supple- 
ment to the genealogy of some descendants of Edward Fuller of the Mayflower, 
published in 1908. 'Printed by C. B. Fiske & Co.. Palmer, Mass., 1910. 8° 
pp. 263, illus. Price 85, 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 basis 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 u'ives 
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 Gallaway and his descendants, compiled by Irene Dabxey Gallaway, 
1903. 8° imp. 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 pasres" is one of the quotations scattered through this pamphlet, 
and Miss Gallaway 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 Gallaway 
appeared in Oglethorpe Co.. Ga.. about 1800. His family went to Alabama, and 
their descendants pushed on to Missi>sippi, Texas, and even to California. The 
presswork of the book is good, and the plan followed in the genealogical work 
is clear.

The collateral ancestry of Stephen Harris, born Sept. 4. 17QS. and Marianne 
Smith, born Apr. 2, ISO 5, by Joseph S. Harris. George F. Lasker, printer, 
Philadelphia, 1908. 4° pp. 190. 

This book, giving the collateral ancestry of the irrandparents of the author, 
represents, with the Harris and Smith records printed in 1903 and 190»;. 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 American branches originated in Pennsylvania. The names treated in

Descendants of Abraham Huntting, the sixth in line from John Huntting. the first 
of the name in America, compiled by Testis D. Huntting, Brooklyn, N. Y. 
Printed for private distribution, 1910. 8° pp. 9, illus. 

John Huntting, born iu England in 1597, married Hester Leaborne. a relative 
of John Rogers the martyr, 1G17, came to Dedham. in 1G38, and was the first 
ruling elder of the church in that town. The brochure gives the family records 
of his descendants who were ancestors of Abraham (1773-1851)', and the de- 
scendants of the latter, in male and female lines, to the present time. Although 
some of the descendants of John Huntting may have dropped one of the two t's 
in the name, this branch retains the spelling which appears in the signature of 
John of Dedham. 

Lewis, with collateral lines, Andrews, Belden, Bronson, Butler, Gillctt, Xewell,

by Harriet Southwoutii (Lewis) Barnes. Philadelphia. 1910. 8° pp. 73, 
port. Price $2.00. Address Mrs. A. M. Barnes. Melrose Park, Pa. 
This little book is in the nature of a memorial to the father of the author, 
and traces his ancestry through old Connecticut families, most of whom emi- 
grated from Massachusetts with Hooker, to their progenitors iu Wales and 
England. Historical notes in regard to nearly all direct aucestors 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/PIeD., 1908 [19.09]. 4° 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,e'70 through 
eleveu generations. Sections in the index give soldiers of the Civil War. college 
graduates, and celebrated people bearing the name. Sixty-two pages are de- 
voted to the hi>tory of the family in England. Joseph Loomis (Braintree and 
London, Eng.) came to Dorchester, Mass., in 1038. and the next year went to 
Windsor, Conn. It is remarkable that the title to his homestead has never 
passed out of the Loomis uame. 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 Dabney Gaelaway. 8° imp. Sentinel Press, Eayetteville, 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 senerations was obtained by 
correspondence with relatives rather than from ohicial records. The families 
being so widely separated, we appreciate the ditiiculties 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, dining 
the Civil War. 

Genealogy of the McFarland family of Hancock Co., Maine, by Daniel Y. Mc-

Price .$1, postpaid. Address the author, North Lamoine, Maine. 
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 is an authority on the history of Hancock Co.. and his work 
is concise and shows careful study of records. His ance>tors. James and 
Thomas McFarland. went to Maine before 17G8, and both served in the Rcvo- 
lutionary war. They married sisters. Margaret and Jane Smith of Londonderry, 
N. H. Only children and grandchildren of James are mentioned, except the

Autobiography of Thomas Painter, relating his experiences during the war of the 
Revolution. Printed for private circulation, March. 1910. 8° pp. IOC. illus. 
Mrs. Lewis Clephane. of Washington. D. C, thinking that those of Thomas 
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 has 
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 chart is appended giving his descent for six generations.

author, South Orange, N. J. 

We regret that this handsome volume was received too late for notice in our 
October number. Daniel Perrin. the emigre, was probably from the island of 
Jersey, where tbe name appears ; s early as 1410. 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 foreisrn 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 paintiug, 
11 The landing of Governor Philip Carteret," signed by the artist.

object will be attained. The original emigrants were Arthur of Boston, Mass., 
1652, and John of Farraington, Conn., 1GGG. About 1H80 John went to Water- 
bnry, and later to Haddam. Arthur removed to Middleton and Lyme, Conn. 
The Waterbury and Middleton branches of Scovilles remained in Connecticut 
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 Litchiield Co., Conn.

John Divine of Lynn, Thomas Huckins of Barnstable, Benjamin Jones and son 
Joseph, of Oxford. Conn., George Lewis or Lewes, one of the -'men of Kent"

through a succession of Connecticut pioneers to Frances A. (Smith) Lewis, 
mother of the author. The names of children of each generation are given, but 
dates and historical notes are generally omitted, unless they refer to ancestors 
or the immediate family of Mrs. Lewis.

This book, admirable in every particular, is dedicated to the memory of Cla- 
rissa Lawrence Starkey, wife of Thomas Crane of Quincy, Mass., Xew York 
City, and Stamford, Conn. She was born in Troy, X. H., 183G, daughter of 
George and Betsey (Lawrence) Starkey. Her ancestry is traced back to the 
mother country, and quotations, from English records are plentiful. Her pio- 
neer ancestors in this country were John Starkey and John Waite of Maiden, 
John Lawrence of Grotoii, Alexander Balcom of Providence, R. I.. Rear Admi- 
ral Thomas Greaves of Charle.-towu. Mass., Bantield Capron of Barrington and 
Attleborough. Mass., and Pentecost Blackington of Marblehead. Miss Leav- 
itt's system is similar to that used in the REGISTER, and each family record is 
preceded by a table showing the connection with the Starkey line. The bind- 
ing, press work, and paper are of the best, and a comprehensive index is added.

This large volume^coutaius 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 Watcrtown, Mass., whence removed to Wethersfield, Conn., 1637, 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 by 
marriage. A single number system, with no reference to previous generations,

Joseph Watson was born in Lancaster, Pa., about 1760, of Scotch ancestry. 
He settled iu Cumberland Co., Pa., 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 obtaiu much information from 
the children of Joseph Watson, only one of whom was living in 1909. Iu tracing 
the younger generations, if unable to obtain vital records, she gives the last 
known address of the person or family under consideration. Plank pages are 
left for additional information. 

Williams Genealogy, Wethersfield, Cromwell branch, compiled by Murray Ed- 
ward Poole. Press of the Ithaca Journal, 1910. 8° pp. 43. 
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 iu northern New York in the early forties, and became successful in 
mercantile, political, philanthropic, and literary pursuits. Josiah, the second 
son, ca>t the deciding vote which gave Central Park to New York, and was one 
of the original board of trustees of Cornell University. The emigrant ancestor 
of the family, Thomas Williams, came from Wales to Wethersfield, Conn. The 
scheme of members designating different generations and branches is decidedl; 
original ; but the value of the work would be greatly increased if there wen 
an index.

Article 1 is the journal of a prominent member of the loyalist colony at Cas-

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 original of which is 
in the possession of the Maine Historical Society. Article 3 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 concern- 
ing the Penobscot expedition of Saltonstall and Lovell, and the relations exist- 
ing between England and her Indian allies during the war of 1812.

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, III., in 185G-7, form an interesting paper 
which was delivered at the centennial exercises.

The founding of Charlestown by the Spragues. A glimpse of the beginning of the 
Massachusetts Bay settlement, bv Henry Harrison Spragle, A.M. Boston, 
William B. Clark Co., 1910. 8° pp. 39. 

This pamphlet discusses the question of date of settlement of Charlestown, 
Mass., and contends that the town was settled in 1628, possibly before the ar- 
rival of Endicott, but at least before the winter of 162S-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 lh-ing. is printed verbatim, and a half-tone facsimile of the agreement 
establishing town government in 1634 is inserted. Mr.- Sprague claims that 
" the first settlers of Mishawam may be said historically to be the real founders 
of the first settlement of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and of the capital at 
Bostou, in the year 1623."

The ceremonies attending the laying of the cornerstone of the beautiful build- 
ing shown in the frontispiece of this book were impressive and imposing, and 
were participated in by the state government, the judiciary and the Grand Lodge 
of A. F. and A. M. The stone was laid with full masonic ceremonies, and the 
contents of the box deposited therein is given in detail. The book concludes 
with the address delivered by Simeon E. Baldwin, LL.D., Chief Justice of Con- 
necticut.

other residents, their occupation and location, xchen known, to the number of 
nearly eight hundred, compiled by Frank D. Andrews. Privately printed, 
Yineland, N. J., 1910. 8° pp. 34. 

By means of advertisements in the Hartford Courant and Mercury, from manu- 
scripts in the author's possession dated 1799, and miscellaneous sources, Mr. 
Andrews lias compiled a directory comprising about 16 per cent, of the popula- 
tion of the city of Hartford at that time. A business directory rills 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 Yineland Historical Society 
and member of the Connecticut Historical Society. 

A history of Hatfield, Massachusetts, 1000-1910, by Daniel White Wells and 
REUBEN Field Wells. Published under the direction of F. C. H. Gibbons, 
Springfield, Mass. 8° pp. 536. illus. 

The volume is subdivided into three parts : I. An account of the develop- 
ment of the town from its first settlement. II. The houses and homes, with 
personal reminiscences, of the men and women of the last one hundred years; 
historical account of religious societies and Smith Academy. III. Genealogies 
of the families of the first settlers. Accounts of Indian warfare, extracts from 
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 William F. 

Whitciier, Woodsville, N. H. News, Book and Job Print, 1909. b° pp. 43. 

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 ail hazard." The tax lists of 1*09 
contain 210 names ; foot notes explain the identity of many taxpayers of Haver- 
hill, X. H., at that date, and from a genealogical point of view are quite as 
interesting as the town records themselves.

its impress ou the records. The population in 1830 was 687, with no indication 
that within sixteen years the town would be incorporated as a city with ten 
thousand inhabitants. Tax lists form a srood share of the book. The frontis-

100 Booh Notices [Jan, 

This attractive pamphlet recites the history of a church 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 be-t they could without a pastor and without a 
church building. It was re-organized as the "Westlield Church in 1810. The 
first chapter treats of the period from 1808 to 1840, and the second from 18-10 
to 100S. 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 church is appended.

Press Corporation, Cumberland, Md.. UtlO. 12° pp. 181, illus. " Price ?f. 
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 reflect upon the valor and worth of the Federal soldier or his lenders. . . . 
It was simply a case of Greek meeting Greek, each being worthy of his foe- 
man's steel." The author's style is terse aud graphic. The book is a fair, dis- 
passionate account of the campaigns of Jackson aud his brigade as seen by a 
young Confederate officer who participated in them, inspired by admiration for 
his leader 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 if.> completion. Following tributes to Presi- 
dent Lincoln, the 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 deatii of almost 
every man. Space is given to the proceedings of the 13th Vermont Association. 
Good paper, binding and pre>swork add to the permanent worth of the publi-

This book is an appeal written by a Christian minister. Taking history as his

DELORAEnE PEXDRE COREY 

By Charles Edward Mann, of Maiden, Mass. 

Deloraixe Pexdre Corey, historian of Maiden and universally 
recognized as her first citizen, died at his home in that city Friday, 
May 6, 1910. Mr. Corey was born in South Maiden, now Everett, 
September 4, 1836, the son of Solomon Pendre and Martha- 
Skinner (Waite) Corey. His ancestry was interesting. lie was 
in the seventh generation from William Corey, a freeman of Ports- 
mouth, and made a freeman of PI. ode Island and Providence Plan- 
tations May 18, 1658, the line being William, 1 William, 2 Benjamin, 3 
Benjamin 4 (married Prudence, daughter of Solomon and Patience 
(Ray) Pendre), Capt. Solomon 5 (married Charlotte (Delano) Win- 
sor), Solomon Pendre, 6 Deloraine Pendre. 7 Through his grandmo- 
ther, Charlotte Delano (Winsor) Corey, he was descended from John 
and Priscilla (Mullins) Aldcn, the Plymouth Pilgrims, thus : Wil- 
liam 1 Mullins, John and Priscilla 2 (Mullins ) xVlden, William and 
Elizabeth 3 (Alden) Pabodie, John and Mercy 4 (Pabodie) Simmons, 
Ebenezer and Martha 5 (Simmons; Delano, Joshua 9 and Hopcstill( Pe- 
terson) Delano, Samuel and Rhoda 7 (Delano) Winsor, Peter 8 and 
Charlotte (Delano) Winsor, Charlotte Delano 9 (Winsor) Corey. 
Through his mother, Martha Skinner ( Waite) Corey, he was descend- 
ed from Maiden's two Puritan captains, Joseph Hills, 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 1 
and Rose (Clerke) Hills, John 2 (son of Samuel 1 ) and Mary 2 (Hills) 
Waite, Joseph 3 and Mercy (Tufts) Waite, Thomas 4 and Deborah 
(Sargeant) Waite, Thomas 5 and Mary (Sprague) Waite, Thomas 8 
and Lydia (Hitchins) W^aite, Thomas 7 and Hannah (Cheever) 
W r aite, Martha-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 schoolmaster; also to Capt. 
Joseph Cheever who led his company at Bunker Hill and Trenton,

104 Deloraine JPendre Corey [April 

another Revolutionary sire having been Peter Winsor, a non-com- 
> missioned officer who was at the surrender of Burgoyne. 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 Mayfiower in various lines of 
ascent. 

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 18G6, 
which, under the names of Stratton, Orton & Corey, and Stratton, 
Corev & Co., continued the business until the oreat 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 the 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, from 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 work 
appear in even a more marked degree in his History. A printed 
collection of the footnotes to that work would be a valuable histori-

cal volume in themselves, while the narrative, 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: K 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, from iirst to last, a labor 
of love." Another reviewer said : " The result is a history far 
above the average town history in every 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 
the department of local history because of its valuable contribution 
to knowledge, and the admirable manner of its execution." 

In the April number of the Register, 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 sun, Arthur Deloraine 
Corey, Ph.D., which has gone through three editions. His chapter 
on "Joseph Hills and the Massachusetts Laws in 1648" from the 
History, was reprinted as a separate pamphlet in 1899. In the 
New Enyland Slagazine^ vol. xx, pp. 357-378, appears his story 
"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 Register, in 1902 ; the vital statistics 
of Maiden in 1902 ; and a memoir of William Blake Trask, A.M., 
reprinted from the Register, in 1907. 

The beautiful 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 libra- 
ry. 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 
work of the late H. H. Richardson, and is a memorial to Frank 
Eugene Converse, son of the late Hon. Elisha S. Converse, who 





















'

practically placed his wealth at tlie 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 
future needs. 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 
and 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 
board 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 meeting; e. 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 every 
way, fell the duty of preparing the inscriptions which were placed 
upon the Bell Hock 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 
ancestor. , 

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 upon 
his completion of thirty years' service as chairman of the public 
library trustees, that he accept a complimentary banquet. L'nwil- 
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- 
stances. 

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, 18G5, 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 












• 








































'

degree of Ph.D. from the Royal Friedrich Willi elm 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, especially to those who needed it most. Within a year of his 
death, 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 from time to time as sub- 
scriptions lagged. His last appearance in public was at one of these 
meetings. AVhile a regular attendant at the First Baptist Church in 
Maiden, Mr. Corey was extremely broad in his religious sympathies, 
and though everywhere recognized 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 signally 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 memorials of the past were preserved ; 
patient when his work was unappreciated, grateful but modest when 
recognition came ; bearing his personal sorrows bravely, and meeting 
failing health and the summons of the Last Messenger with resig- 
nation — this world can never have too many men like him.

THE ENGLISH ANCESTORS OF EDMOND HAWES 
OF YARMOUTH, MASS. 

By James W. Haves 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 1G35, to sail from 
Southampton in the ship James for New England, a and that he arrived in 
Boston 3 June 1635. after a passage of about live weeks. b 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 atfairs until 
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 the 
Colony Court. He left one son, John (who married Desire, daughter of 
Capt. John Gorham and granddaughter of John Howland, the Mayflower 
passenger), also active in public atfairs 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. Wardwell and James Anderson Hawes, 
of New York City, employed Mr. Gerald Fothergiil 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 
\Yarnett, d 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.

•Drake's Founders of Xew England, pp. 55-6. 

* Winthrop's Journal (Hosm-er's ed ), vol. 1, p. 152. 

c Services were also performed by Miss P. Smith of Queen's Gardens, London. 
Acknowledgments are due for valuable assistance, gratuitously given, to Mr. P. E. 
Martineau, a local antiquary of Knowle, Warwickshire ; to Rev. Robert Pemberton, 
author of •' Solihull and its Church," of Birmingham, England; and to Mr. Frank M. 
Hawes, a descendant of Richard Hawes, of Somerviile, Mass., who is engaged on a 
genealogy of the various lines of Massachusetts Haweses. 

d Probably a relative or connection by marriage. See Waters's Gleanings, pp. 1345- 
7, wills of Robert and John Baker.

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 
William Kastall (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. e The printed parish register of Solyhull (Parish 
Register Society, vol. 53) shows the baptisms of Edmond and his brothers 
and sisters. They are all styled Mr. or Mrs., and described as son or 
daughter of Mr. Edmond Hawes of Hilltield 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 family for eight generations down to the emigrant, Edmond (Edmond, 
William, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas). 

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

Hillheld 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 following inscription, containing the 
initials of AVilliam Hawes and his wife Ursula: 

H 
W. V. 

1576 
Hie hospites, in Coelo Cives. 9 

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

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

A manuscript in the Bridges collection in the Bodleian Library at Ox- 
ford, attributed to William Belchier of Northamptonshire, reproduces in- 
scriptions existing in the Hawes mansion in Solihull (probably about 1600 
or earlier), giving the marriage of Thomas Hawes in 1465 to Ann Gres- 
wolde, with the Hawes arms impaling those of Greswolde (argent, a less 
gules between two greyhounds courant sable), the marriage of Thomas 
Hawes in 1527 to Elizabeth 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 pelletee 
four barrulets sable between three lions' heads erased or).

wickshire, 1619, p. 61.) 

iThe Rainsford (or Raynesford) family were from Lancashire and Oxfordshire. 
Their original arms were argent, a cross* sable. (Visitation of Oxfordshire, Harleian

ct 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-tre.-i-urer in the 
Exchequer in the reign of Henry VI. (between 1422 and 1461), and held other oihees. 
This John Brome was slain in 1468 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 Brome hold against Herthill. He was buried in the 
White Friars' Church, and there was a Latin epitaph inscribed on his tombstone.

Thomas who died in 1558, Thomas who died in 1574, William, 
and the latter's son Edmond, 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 Ids 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 the 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. q

vii. Elizabeth, bapt. at Biddenden 21 Jan. 1620-1 ; evidently came to 
New England with the -widow of her brother Stephen Iggleden 
(No. ?•).-? The records of Roxbury, Mass., show the marriage of 
Philip Meadows and Elizabeth Inguiden, Apr. 1641. Child: 
Hannah, b. at Roxbury 1 Eeb. 1642-8. Sarage and other author- 
ities erroneously state that Elizabeth Iggleden, wife of Philip 
Meadows, was daughter of Stephen Iggleden (No. 7). 

viii. Maky, bapt. at Biddenden 2'J June 1623. 

7. Stephen Iggleden, baptized at Biddenden 17 Jan. 1607-8, died

mer of 1638 in the Castle, which brought a company from Tenter- 
den and vicinity, among them Peter Branch of Halden, co. Kent 
(which lies between Tenterden and Biddenden), who died on the 
voyage and by his will, dated 16 June 1638 and probated at Bos- 
ton, left a reversionary bequest to " widowe Tgleden the late wife 
of Stephen Igk-den or to his children or to her children she had 
by him." She settled at Roxbury, Mass., where as " Widdow 
Iggulden " she appears in a list of proprietors in 1639. Three 
years later her marriage appears in Roxbury : " Joseph Patching 
and Elizabeth Ingulden, Apr. 10," 16421 On 20 Oct. 16-46 
" Egleden, daughter in law to Joseph Patchen she was about 10 y. 
old, she dyed of a paine first in her head, then in her back " 
(Roxburv Church Records). " Goodwife Patchin a poor old wo- 
man " joined the Roxbury Church 14 Mar. 1649-50, and her two 
sons Joseph and John Patchen were baptized. Joseph Patchen re- 
moved in 1651 to Fairfield, Conn. 
Children baptized at Biddenden :

aged 10 years. 

[There was a Richard Iggleden, mariner, of Boston, who married Ann 
Prince, 19 July 1660, and administration on whose estate was given to 
Oliver Purchase 1 May 1667. Savage and other authorities state that he 
was son of Stephen Iggleden, but give no evidence for the assertion. 

At Woburn, Mass., John Nutting married, 28 Aug. 1650, Sarah Eggle- 
ton, and Samuel Blodgett married, 13 Dec. 1655, Ruth Eggleton. Savage 
and others have suggested these two were also daughters of Stephen Iggle- 
den (No. 7), but, as Mr. Arthur G. Loring has pointed out, in 1674 Nutt- 
ing and Blodgett agreed to support their mother-in-law Jane, widow of 
Isaac Cole. She was born about 1600. was formerly wife of James Britton, 
and evidently still earlier the wife of one Eggleton, by whom she had Sarah 
and Ruth. (See Register, vol. 59, p. 417") ]

PROCEEDINGS OF THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC 
GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY 

By John Albree, Becoming Secretary 

Boston, Massachusetts, 7 December, 1910. A stated meeting of the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society was held at Pilgrim Hall, U Beacon 
Street, at 2.30 p.m., President Baxter presiding. »)* 

The records of the November meeting were read and approved. 

Seven resident members were elected by ballot. 

The reports of the Corresponding Secretary, Librarian, Historian, and Council 
were accepted. 

Messrs. Henry Edwards Scott and George Sawin Stewart were appointed by 
the President to act as auditors. 

On motion, the President appointed Charles Siduey Ensign, John Albree, and

be, and hereby is, authorized and instructed to erect a suitable building for the 
present and probable future needs of the Society on the land now owned by the 
Society on Beacon Hill, with an entrance from Ashburton Place; and also to 
make all plans necessary for financing this undertaking. 

Edmund H. Garrett of Boston spoke on Baronial Halls and Elizabethan Man- 
sions: their history, romance and beauty. He traced the development of the 
mansion from the castle of feudal times, using stereopticon slides from photo- 
graphs he himself had made to illustrate his theme. \ 

After a vote of thanks to the speaker, the meeting dissolved at 4.10 p.m., and _

Through the death of William Carver Bates, a member of the Council, the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society lias iust an enthusiastic supporter. He be- 
lieved iu it and in its ability 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- 
Suits was an inspiration to his fellow-workers. His cheery personality, his zeal and 
his courage made him an associate whom we shall greatly miss. I

read a paper on the History and Development of Conveyancing, in which he «&: 

traced the development of the ownership of land, and of the methods of making 
and recording transfers of title. He closed with a recital of incidents, such as 
occur in the daily routine of his oillce, to show the need of extreme care in the 
transfer of real estate. t 

After remarks by Messrs. Cunningham, Stark, and Mann, it was, on motion

NOTES 

Parentage of Gov. Thomas Dudley. — For nearly a century fruitless efforts 
have been made to substantiate the statements of Cotton Mather, that Gov. 
Dudley was born in Northampton about 1571, son of Capt. Roger Dudley, and 
that his mother was a kinswoman of Judge JTicolis, although persistent search 
was made in the records of the Dudley and Xicolls families, and among the 
Pells and Purefoys. who were connected with the Xieolls family. In the Reg- 
ister for October. 1895, Mr. H. F. Waters published the will of a John Puret'oy, 
1570, which mentioued a Thomas Dudley. (See Register, vol. 19. 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 
Thorne of Yardley. co. Xorthants. and of their six children •• Susanna Thorne 
m. Rogers." That this "Rogers" should be Roger Dudley is proved by the 
register of Yardley Hastings, which records, 12 Oct. 1576, the baptism of 
Thomas Dudley, son of Roger and Susanna (Thorne) Dudley, as has recently 
been made public in vol. 1. p. 93, of the " Stokes Records " (1910). The state- 
ments of Cotton Mather are thus continued.

Ancestry of William Dyer. — 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 1690. of that part of Bridge- 
water since known as Abington and Whitman. The ancestry of William Dyer 
has been unknown, while his wife has been called by some Joanna Chard and by 
others Joanna Bicknell. His relationship to Dea. Thomas Dyer of Weymouth, 
Mass., has seemed probable, but the historians Hobart. Mitchell, Xash. Kev. 
Ebenezer Porter Dyer, Rev. Charles Cummin gs, and others, searched in vain for 
proof. 

A short distance west of the railroad station at Whitman, William Dyer built 
his log cabin, near a tine spring of water, and here Christopher, his son. was 
born in 1701, the first child born in the town of Abington. He married sgaiu, 
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 
probated. 

Evidence is now'at hand that this Abington pioneer, William Dyer, was a son 
of Christopher, who was the son of William, both early settlers of Sheep-cot, 
Me., where they were massacred by the Indians during King Philip's War, 
1675-1678. Cushman's History of Slieepscot says: k - William Dyer, who had 
been in the region of Saco, vfus 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 1605. 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 Notes [April 

John Palmer, who was an agent for the Duke of York.* Where the Sheepscot 
Eiver divides at the Burnt islands, and the East Branch with its deep indenta- 
tions seeks anain to mingle its divided waters with the main sweep of the river 
above the falls, there at the wt north pount" of the Great or "Towue Xecke" 
"William Dyer built his cabin at the mouth of the river which still bears his 
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 
167G. " William Dyer was a large, stout 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, but 
mostly to Boston and vicinity. 

William Dyer had two sons — Christopher, the elder ; John, born about 1618 — 
and a daughter Mary, who married Samuel Bolles. 

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

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

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

At the desertion of the Sheepscot settlement, about 1076. Christopher and 
John Dyer went to Scituate and Braintree. August 30, 1682, they joined with 
other survivors of the refugees in a compact made at Boston to reoccupy their 
homes at Sheepscot before September 29, 1663. and the Indian disturbances 
having ceased they returned to their abandoned farms. Here, for a few years 
of comparative quiet with the Indians, they prospered until near the close of 
King Philip's War. when Indian hostilities again assailed the Sheepscot colony, 
and John Dyer was severely wounded, and was taken by his brother Christopher 
to Fort Pemaquid. fifteen miles or more, the nearest place, for surgical treat- 
ment. About 1688 or 1689 the Indians again attacked and completely broke up 
the Sheepscot settlement. Christopher Dyer, with others, was killed. 

John Dyer, in his deposition dated January 19, 17o2-:3, 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 was 
al^o killed by the Indians: that Christopher left a son William and other chil- 
dren, said William now residing in Weymouth. Esther Roberts of Boston also 
deposes to the same effect. 

The inhabitants who escape d massacre fled never to return, and Sheepscot 
was deserted for thirty years. 

Ruth, the widow of Christopher Dyer, was in 1692 living with her two 
young daughters, Mary and Ruth 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 Ruth Dyer went with their mother to their 
new home in Taunton, and in time married there. Mary Dyer manned Samuel 
Talbot of Taunton in 169S. and Ruth Dyer married Benjamin Paul of Taunton 
about 1704. A descendant of this Ruth Dyer, E. Paul, Esq.. a lawyer of 
Minneapolis. Minn., in searching for the previous history of the widow Ruth 
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 Abington, 
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, fled from Sheepscot to Braintree, 
Mass., where he remained for the re>t of his life and reared a large family. He 
married first Sarah, and secondly Anna Holbrook. Rev. Samuel Niles, the 
minister of Braintree, refers to him under date of April 23, 1733. thus: lk This 
day buried John Dyer the a<:ed.'" Judge Samuel Sewall also refers to him in 
his diary under date of February 1, 1680-1, as follows: " Last night one Dyer 
of Braintrey shot an Indian to death as he was breaking his window and at-

[like ?] a Dogg bee. would not let him come in to light his Pipe. Man was 
abed. Indian's gun found charg'd, cock* and prim'd in .his Hand." (5 Mass. 
Hist. Soc. Coll., vol. 6, and Sewall papers, vol. 2. p. 15*.) John Dyer had to 
give 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. 1SS). 
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." 

Hobart'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. 

(This paper is presented by the Hon. James Sidney Allen of Brockton, Mass., 
and Dr. Ebenezer Alden Dyer of Whitman. Mass., both of whom are of the 
seventh generation from William Dyer, the pioneer of Abington.)

BOOK NOTICES* 

By a vote of the Committee on Publications the present form of 
Book Notices will be discontinued after this number. As in the 
past, only books given to the Society will be listed, and in addi- 
tion to the full title 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 Fublislievs' Weekly.

in the early generations in England and previous to Oliver 5 Booth (Joshua, 4 
William, 3 Simeon, 3 Robert 1 ). Robert 1 Booth was of Exeter, N. H., 1645, and

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-page, and a complete index is in preparation.

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 
soldier 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

This publication deals chiefly with the English branches of a family which 
originated upon the bank* of the Ueben 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 
family records (the first mention of the name in England occurring A.D. 1165), 
the descriptions of coat> of arms, and a list of wills in the Court of the Arch-

Ely. 1910. 8° pp. 445, illus. Price, cloth $5 ; half leather $7. Address 

Daniel B. Ely, 80 Broadway, New York City. 

In the ship Shield, which anchored in the Delaware in 1678, were Thomas 
Revell, Mahlon Stacy and his wife Rebecca Ely. Joshua Ely joined the colony 
in 1GS3. The ancestry of these immigrants has been carefully studied by Mr. 
D. B. Ely, who has visited their homes in England and consulted records there 
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 laud. Names of plantations in Jersey 
have been found to be duplicates of ancestral estates in England. The genea- 
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 Charles Newton French. 

Chicago, privately printed, 1910. 16° pp. 31. 

This little book records the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren 
of Aaron French, of New Jersey, 1739-1S05. Nine other immigrants bearing the 
surname, who arrived in this country previous to 1700, are mentioned and some 
account of them is added. The family 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, with index of names and blanks for records, by Volney 
Sew all Fulham. Burlington, Vt., Free Press Co., 1910. 12° pp\ 291-4-10, 
illus. 

This volume gives the record of the descendants of Hon. Francis Fulham, 
who died in Weston, Mass.. in 1757. 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. 

Pedigree of the family of Grazcbrook, with ample proofs for every generation. 
Part I, from 1035 until the representation in the direct male line became vested 
in that branch which settled in Sheaston, Co. Stafford^ in 1204, by GEORGE 
Grazcbrook, F.S.A. Privately printed from 4 Miscellanea Genealogica et 
Heraldica. vol. ii, p. 208 et seq", London, Mitchell Hughes and Clarke, 1910. 
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. Mr. 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. 

Aris Sonis Focisquc. being a memoir of an American family, the Harrisons of 
Skimino, and particularly of Jesse Burton Harrison and Burton Xorvell Har- 
rison, edited by Fairfax Harrison from material collected by Francis Bur- 
ton Harrison" Privately printed, 1910. 8° pp. 413. 

The beautiful family life, the stern adherence to principle as exemplitied by 
the Quaker William Harrison, softened and moulded into more intellectual 
channels in 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 publishedT

1775 ; with genealogical notes relating to the Hayicards, by Everett Hosmer 
Barney. Privately printed, Springfield, Mass., 1911. 8° pp. 59, illus. 
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- 
aloiry, the book contains a roster of the companies of Capt. Isaac Davis and 
Capt. John Hay ward, both of Acton ; an article upon the Davis monument at

trations are especially interesting. 

Genealogy of the Houser, Bhorer, Dillman, Hoover Families, compiled by Dr. 

William Wesley Houser and others. 1910. 8° pp. 239, illus. 

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

Tlie descendants of Jonathan Kearsley, 1718-17S2, and his wife Jane Kearsley, 
2720-1S01 (from Scotland), who settled at Carlisle, Penn'a. Died at Ship- 
pensburg, Pa., and are buried at Middle Spring Church Yard, Cumberland Co., 
Pa., compiled by Elmer L. White, 1900. 8° pp. 70. 

Copies of old manuscripts, Bible records, and wills are presented in this 
pamphlet with comparatively few comments by the compiler. Jonathan Kear- 
sley was called •• Doctor." and was a druggist or chemist. He refers iu his 
memoirs to his parents, and states that he came to this country " a fugitive," 
but fails to give his birthplace or his parents' names. Prominent residents of 
Pennsylvania and Virginia are among his descendants, Dr. S. Weir Mitchell, 
the author, being a great-grandson. 

The Ports-mouth race. of Monsons, Munsons, Mansons, comprising Richard Mon- 
son (at Portsmouth, X. H., 1663) and his descendants. Being a contribution 
to a Genealogy and History of jive generations (with some extensions in Part II), 
by Myron ANDREWS Munsox. New Haven, Conn.. 1010. 8° pp. 89, illus. 
In his introduction Mr. Munson gives special credit to Mr. Albert C. Ma-on, 
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 Kobert Monson of the 
Isles of Shoals, and Kobert of Scarborough. Me., but no genealogy is printed. 
An etibrt has been made, so far unsuccessfully, to connect these early New 
Hampshire and Maine families with each other and those of the name in Con- 
necticut. 

Descendants of Samuel Morse of Worthington, Massachusetts, by Harriet 
Mouse Weeks of Evanston. 111." Pittstleld, Mass., Press of Eagle Printing 
and Binding Co., 19u7. 8° pp. 50+20. 

Samuel 5 Morse (Moses, 5 Daniel, 4 William, 3 Benjamin, 2 Anthony 1 ) was born 
at Preston, Conn., 1743. His sons emigrated to the Western Reserve about 
1809 and settled in Williamsfield, 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 number of page references in the index. 

Prouty (Proute) Genealogy, compiled by Charles Henry Pope. Boston, Mass., 
Charles II. Pope, 221 Columbus Avenue, 1910. 8° pp. vii-j-239, illus. 
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 
century. Coincidences of names and dates seem to substantiate the theory that 
Richard Proute, the emigrant ancestor, originated near Bristol, Eug.. The 
genealogy is arranged after the system used in the Register, and Mr. Pope's 
work is so well known that his name on the title-page is a sufficient guaranty 
for the excellence of the book. 

Descendants of Benjamin Pice of Conicay, Mass., by Rev. Edwtn B. Rice, M.A. 

New York, l\)o0. 8° pp. 35, illus. 

Edmund Rice, the emigraut ancestor of the Rice family, came to America in 
16:38-'j and settled in Sudbury, Mass. Five children were bom in Berkha-n-tead, 
Eug., and the father seems to have removed from that town to New England. 
His son Benjamin was born at Sudbury May 31, 1640. Three hundred and forty 
of his descendants are recorded, following the line of Benjamin of Conway 
(Ebenezer, Ebenezer, Benjamin.). There is an index of those mentioned in

Conway, Mass., and the Rice family, by Rev. Edwin B. Rice, M.A., New York, 

1900. 8° pp. 49. illus. 

Cyrus Rice was the first settler in that part of Deerfield set off as the town of 
Conway in 17G7. He was followed by several of his kinsmen, all descendants 
of Edmund Rice of Wayland. Mass. The genealogical part of the pamphlet, 
which is arranged like the one noticed above, gives the descendants of Cyrus, 
Jonas, Joseph, Phineas, 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 homestead of Edmund Rice in Wayland 
(formerly Sudbury). 

The descendants of Jacob Schoff, who came to Boston, 1752, and settled in Ash- 
bumham in 1757, with an account of the German immigration into colonial 
New England, by Wilfred H. Schoff. Philadelphia, 1910. 8° pp. 103, illus. 
Jacob Schoff was one of seven Germans who bought from the town of Lex- 
ington, Mass,, its holdings in Dorchester Canada, now Ashburnhani. Besides 
the personal history of Schorl' and his descendants, the account of the coining 
of the Germans to Massachusetts — an almost unknown phase in its history — is 
treated at length. Froiti Ashburnfaam the emigrant went to Erauconia. 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. 

Scoville Family Records. Part II. Descendants of Arthur Scovil of Boston, ?Iass., 
MiddVitown and Lyme, Conn., by Charles R. Eastman. Cambridge, Mass., 
privately printed, 1910. 8° pp. 22, port. 
This pamphlet is the second in a series, uniform in style, which Mr. Eastman 

intends to compile in preparation for a complete genealogy of the Scoville 

family. 

Descendants of Edward Small of New England, and the allied families, with, trac- 
ings of English, ancestry, by Lora Altlxe Woodbluy Undlklilll. Cam- 
bridge", The Riverside Press, l'jio. 3 vols. 8' 3 pp. 1802, illus. 
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. Tkese families are Allerton, Hatch, Sawyer. Mitchell, 
Jenney, Cooke, Cushman, Stetson. Chandler. Andrews, Roberts, Pratt. Heard, 
McKeuney, 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 iu one huge folio. Every page is interesting and 
shows study of both English aud early American records. 

Spelman Genealogy. The English ancestry and American descendants of Richard 
Spelman of Middletown, Conn., 1700, by Fannie Cooley Williams Baruour. 
New York, Erank Allabeu Genealogical Co., 1910. 8° pp. 559, illus. 
The Spelmaus (sometimes written Spilmanor Spileman) are traced for fifteen 
generations iu England to William Espileman, Kt., in the twelfth century. In 
America the family is carried through eight generations. The author did not 
live to see the publication of her book, and it was left to Mrs. John D. Rocke- 
feller (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 merely, 
but a family history full of character. 

A Quantock Family. The Stawells of Cathelstone and their descendants, the Bar-

compiled by Colonel George Donswortii Stawell. Taunton [Eng.l, Barni- 
coat and Pearce, the Wessex Press. 1910. 4° pp. 565, LA charts, iiiiis. 
The primary object of the compiler of this voluminous work was to prove 
that the Stawell families of Ireland and Australia were offshoots from the old 
family in Devonshire, Eng., where the name is now extinct. His researches 
have been rewarded in some respects beyond his expectations. The scope of

the work includes the early history of the Stawells, etymology of the name, the 
Stawells of Somerset. Devon, and Cork, arms and heraldry of the Stawells, 
genealogies and tables of descents, etc. The book is beautifully illustrated, 
and demands more than a cursory reading.

8° pp. 525, illus. 

John Swasey and his two sons, Joseph and John. Jr.. came to America and 
settled hi Salem, Mass., as early as 1632. Joseph remained in Salem, but his 
father and brother removed to Southold, L. I., being driven from Salem on ac- 
count 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. Tiie plan 
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.

recaptured by buccaneers, he was enabled to return to South Carolina with the 
Port Royal expedition and turn his knowledge of the Indians to the advantage 
of the English. Prom him are descended many noted southern families. The 
pamphlet prints the Woodward coat of arms and the romantic story of its iden- 
tification.

ington, Lee, Reade, Prescott, Taylor. Roosevelt, Saltonstall, Fauntleroy, O'Xeil, 
Robinson, Johnston, and Morgan. The chapters on knighthood, heraldry, and 
ancient abbeys are instructive and interesting; the whole book proves the lite-

REGISTER 



JULY, 1911 



ALMOX DANFORTH HODGES, JR. 

By William T. R. Ma-kvix, L.H.D., of Brookline 

In his delightful story* of "An Old New Englandcr "—a filial 
tribute to the memory of his 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 1071, colleague of the Apostle Eliot, astronomer, 
mathematician, and poet; Samuel Danforth, son of the last, a Harvard 
graduate of the Class of 1683, 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 1650, and then 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, aud 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 
year3 in Pmgland, 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 vigor- 
ous, God-fearing stock in all its branches." 

Two lines of the Hodges family — one known as the Salem branch 
and the other a3 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, 1 born 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. If 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 was pro- 
pounded freeman June 6, 1649, and admitted freeman June 5, 1651, 
on which date lie 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 April 2, 1654. The inventory of 
his estate shows that he held considerable property. 

His son, Henry, 2 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, 3 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 from wounds or sickness on his journey 
home. 

His son, Captain Jonathan, 4 settled in Norton, where he was a 
farmer and clothier. 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, 5 "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 Danforth Hodges x Jr. 209 

His son, Col. Almon D. Hodges, 6 of Norton, Providence and 
Roxbury, was president of the Washington Bank in Boston, from 
1850 until his death in 1878 ; a life member of the Xew England 
Historic Genealogical Society, and its president in 1859. He was 
one of the founders of the Boston City Guards in 1821 ; for live 
years colonel of the 2d Rhode Island Regiment (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 him, we are not surprised to find that four 
of his sons — all who could pass the physical examination — were in 
the Union Army and Xavy during the Civil War, and that two of 
them died in the service. 

Almon Danforth, 7 Jr., the sixth son of Col. Almon Danforth 6 and 
Martha (Comstock) Hodges, was born 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 i860, where he graduated in 1864 and received 
the Master's degree in 1867. While a student there he enlisted as 
a private in Company G, of the 44th Massachusetts Infantry, and 
was mustered September 12, 18G2 ; 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. II. II. 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 special cavalry troop which 
it was proposed to raise by selection from the men and officers in 
the field ; but as Congress failed to authorize the formation of the 
corps, 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 secure 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 remained until July, 1868, pursu- 
ing the study of mining engineering. After completing his course 
there he made a mining and metallurgical tour through Bohemia, 
Silesia, Russia, the Hartz, the Rhine 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 Danforth Hodges, Jr. [July 

he was for about eighteen months the editor of the San Francisco 
Mining and Scientific Pre*?, 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 Germany 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 ' theoretical ' men. it seemed 
advisable to commence at the bottom of the ladder. He therefore began 
again as common laborer (at SO. 00 per day of twelve hours) and worked 
up through all the grades to assaver and then superintendent. This oc- 
cupied eiglit and one-half years of continuous labor — until January, 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 ollice (except in a nominating convention), and, although laboring 
under the disadvantage of being an Independent, never lost but one tight 
of the many in which he engaged. 

* Among his more strictly professional victories, he counts the getting 
of S60,000 to SI 00,000 net profits for his company, 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 without mixing it with 
other material in order to reduce the proportion of copper.* The refinery 
which he built for his process in 1^78, 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 or 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 hb time.*' 

• Thi3 process is fully described in the Transactions American Institute of Mining 
Engineers, vol. xiv (1886). 



1911] Almon Danforth Hodges, Jr. 211 

On July 10, 1882, he married Bertha Louisa, daughter of Wal- 
demar Bobert and Mary Amelia Louisa (von Schoemann) Bernard, 
born August 12, 1863, in San Franciseo. 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, Gal;, on May 14, 1884, after a brief but happy 
married life of less than two years, leaving one son, Frederick 
Hodges, born 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 from 
the active duties of his profession, and he returned to Boston with 
his son, intending to make his future home in or near that city. 

While still refusing 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 tours to Peru, each lasting 
about a year. From June, 1886, to May, 1887, as chief of the 
Cerro de Pasco Mining Company, he conducted in behalf of a very 
powerful Xew York syndicate the examination of the Cerro de Pasco 
mining district, the most extensive and expensive mining examina- 
tion ever made. An account of this work is given in the Transac- 
tions of the American Institute of Mining Engineers (vol. xvi : 
1888), in a paper entitled f 'Xotes on the Topography and Geology 
of the Cerro de Pasco, Peru." In 1888, as chief of the Xueva 
Comision Minera, among other matters, he examined and reported 
on the Nueva California Placer Claim, Peru, 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 Xew 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 Xew England Historic Genealogical Society

To those who were privileged to be numbered among the closer 
friends of Captain Hedges, it was a pleasure to listen to his remi- 
niscences of some of his exciting experiences during the Civil AVar, 
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 $iose with whom he might differ. Loyal in Ins 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, X. EL, 1633 

Edited by Johx Scales, A.M., of Dover, X. H. 

John 1 Dak, the second deacon of the First Church in Dover, X. H., 
was born in England about 1610. He came to Dover witli Capt, Thomas 
Wurgius's company in 1633, which company took possession of Edward 
Hilton's grant and commenced 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 1675 John Dam was elected to 
succeed him. In a petition to the governor by the inhabitants of Dover in 
1C89, John Dam and Nicholas Dam are among the signers. Xo 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 1637, was proved 23 Mar. 1603-4. 

John Dam married, date not known, Elizabeth ?omfret, daughter

1911] First Ownership of Ohio Lands 229 

Original Proprietors of Galliopolis, Ohio 

Following is a copy of a document accompanying the returns of a survey 
and partition of lands in Ohio found in the General 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 die cover : 

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

List of Actual Settlers &c. 
Rufus Putnam's Letter, dated 
12th May 1796." 

Superscription on the letter : Oliver Wolcott, 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 
several 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 100 arrived at Galliopolis the Second of November and within 
a few days after commenced his survey ; which which he completed as 
soon 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 25th ult. On re- 
civeing 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 
miles 72 chains & 98 links, and the time necesarily employed in mak- 
ing duplicate plans & certificates 34 days. My agreement with Mr Mar- 
tin was to execute the survey at " the rate of three Dollars permile for 
every mile actually run including the pay of assistents and all 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 &c, 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 

Rufus Putnam 

Oliver Wolcott, Esq r 

M Cf. Land Laws of the U. Sw, p. 223. 

^Capt. Absalom Martin, Surveyor, who represented New Jersey in the original sur- 
vey of the Seven Ranges of Townships, 1785-83.

252 James Bourne Ayer [July 



JAMES BOUKNE AYER, M.D. 

By Mart A. Rousmaniere of Roxbury, Mass. 

James Bourxe Ayer was born in Boston January 6, 1849. 
His father, Dr. James Ayer, a graduate of Bowdoin College in the 
class of 1834, had lived for many years in the vicinity of Xewfield, 
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. Through her 
his grandchildren are able to trace their descent from Richard 
Bourne, the missionary who labored for many years among the 
Mashpee Indians. 

Dr. Ayer had an elder brother, J. Cullen 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, was an 
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 born to them. 
The following year another son, Frederick Bourne Ayer, was born, 
but died when only a little over two years old. 

A few years later the husband was forced to sustain an eve.i 
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 born 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 learned the German Ian-

guage, which proved of value to him throughout his life. It was 
during these foreign wanderings that he first made the acquaintance 
of Mary E. Far well, 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 medicine. A few years later he removed to 53 Mt. Vernon 
Street, where he lived until his removal in 1894 to 518 Beacon 
Street. 

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. AVhen it was proposed 
to erect the new Medical Library in the Fenway he was appointed 
treasurer. In 1900 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 are 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

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

For a year or two before his death 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 



A SHORT HISTORY OF THE ORIGIN AND DEVELOP- 
MENT OF COXYEYAXCIXG* 

By Hon. William T. A. Fitzgerald. Register of Deeds for Suffolk County, 

Massachusetts 

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 tiling 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 it, 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 build 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- 
istence. 

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 j 

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 born 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 English 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 sen-ice 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 the 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 abolished 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 10G6. The conveyance was called a feoffment. It 
was a very solemn and public ceremony, supposed to be easily remembered 
and proved. 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 the conditions 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, 



'■I

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 lines were abolished in 
the reign of King Charles II. 

Conveyances 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 desired 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 thereunto duly authorized. Even then, im- 
pelled by this desire to prevent publicity, Sir Francis 3Ioore resorted 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 the bargainee, 
whicli consummated 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 lit 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 payments into the exchequer, and which superseded the ancient system 
of "tallies in exchequer," 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 halt being given to the person paying the money. This 
rude form continued in existence until 17*2, 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 vojrue in Sutfolk 
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 historv of the svstem of convevancin^ 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 1026 
requiring all sales to be brought to Jamestown and enrolled within a year 
of their date. In 1640 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 [July 

and signed by 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 General 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- 
posed."' 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 that " it 
is not intended that the whole bargaine, sale, &c, shalbee entered, but 
onely the names of the graunter l\: grauntee, the thing & the estate 
graunted, & the date: and all such entryes shalbee certitied 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 this 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 *ne desiring to sell his land should otter 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 1634, and Boston in 1035, 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 nowe nexte ensue- 
ing, & the same soe entered and recorded shalbe a sufficient 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 howses, lands, or Franke- 
tenem'ti." 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, 163'J, 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

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 iirst, 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 j 

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 the Massachusetts General Court in 1040 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 he 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."

There was considerable barter and exchange in the early days as indi- 
cated by the following entry :

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 : a southerly 
to a stake and stones where Daniel Harrington licked William Smith." 

On May 3, 1643, the Massachusetts Colony was divided into four coun- 
ties, namely Essex, Suffolk, Middlesex, and Norfolk. Suffolk County in- 
cluded Boston, " Roxberrv," Dorchester, Dedham, Braintree, Weymouth, 
Hingham. and " Xantaskot." 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, 17u0, in the Suffolk Registry of Deeds. On Janu- 
ary 1, 1800, the number had reached only 193. On January 1, 1850, 
the total was 600, but during the last half of the nineteenth 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 modern 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 

veyancing requires peculiar skill and very close application to detail. The 
very title and the entire value of the land in question is involved in the 
work, aud 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 all 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 fact it is the most important part of the whole transaction, and should 
be paid for accordingly. The grantor sometimes tells the grantee that it 
is unnecessary to examine the title because the property has been in his 
own family for a great many years, or that he has recently 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 
title 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 
course 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. 

1 have known a ca>e where the purchaser of a lot of land gave the ex- 
amination of the title 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. 

1 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 title a few year3 
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 
rush 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 
shrned 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 title examiners. I 
believe there have been cases where the grantor assumed to take his own 
acknowledgment.

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, 
but 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 title, 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 instru- 
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 
him. 

The necessity for a proper examination of a title before the purchase of 
property was admirably illustrated by the late Uriel II. Crocker in a very 
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 <ireat 
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 sufficient 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 tliird parties. There are on record in the Registry of Deeds 
for Suffolk County many interesting leases in the neighborhood of the 
Cornhill district, some of them being for 1000 years, and for most peculiar 
rents. For instance, the building at the corner of Court Street and Corn- 
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 i3 referred to, 
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 112 and 114, have been 
missing from the registry since the days of the Revolution. The tradition 
is that when the British occupied Boston, Dedharn 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 is 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 affix a fac-simile 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. 

1 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,*1'J07. 

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

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 laud 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 
oflice for a collection agency, because no one who examined the title would 
recommend it to a purchaser 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 nut acknowledged. It is simply a receipt 
for a deed. It is not entitled to record, but the 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 puroue his remedy in court. 

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



274: Origin arid 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 oifice. For instance, it was possi- 
ble under the law for a mortgagor to go to a record book and write a dis- 
charge on the margin of his mortgage, forging the mortgagee's name. If 
not discovered, 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- 
ments. 

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 instrument 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, 1808, 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 
transfer. 

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 assistant 
recorder for the district within which 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 encum- 
brances stated in the decree. 

When it is desired to transfer registered land, the grantor 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 duplicate cer- 
tificate to the purchaser, who brings both instruments to the office of the 
assistant recorder for the district. The instrument of conveyance is prop- 
erly 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, any 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 3906 transactions through the Suffolk Registry 
District of the Land Court. 



BELLS OF HARVARD COLLEGE* 

By Akthcr H. Nichols, M.D., of Boston 
Member of the Ancient Society of College Youths, London 

In the college buildings, to each of which tbe term "College" was in- 
variably 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 the 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 Golfe's College, of which little is 
known, must have been situated in that 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 " lanthorn." 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- 
titled " New England's First Fruits," published in London in 1643, in- 
dicate that a bell was already in use : 

FIRST BELL 

7. Every schollar shall be present in his Tutor's Chambers at the 7th houre 
In the morning immediately after the sound of the bell at his opening the Scrip- 
tures and prayer, so also at the 5th houre at night, and their give an account 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 oileud above once a week. 

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

The Butler upon every Sixt 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

above a quarter of an hour after Thanksgiving in the Hall at Meals, The Cook 
on the Sixt Day at Noon shall give in the weeks expenses of the whole society. 
w ch the Butler shall enter into his Book, according to Custome & shal keep the 
Bills from Quarter to Quarter and shew them to the Stewart at his demand for 
his satisfaction. 

A shade of doubt may, indeed, be cast upon the identity of this bell by 
the suggestion that the College may have had the use of the bell of the 
First Parish, with which close 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 ministry 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 the 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- 
bridge by Prince, who says that in 1G32 " the first house for public worship 
at Newtown [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 order for the payment of 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 the 
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 meetinghouse, 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 called Hartford ; and it 
is recorded that they carried with them their bell. Here it is said to have 
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 by 
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 one in use during this interval. 

A vote of the Parish in 1648 indicates that the tirst 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 that 
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 clock) he 
shall both lose his dinner and, pay a pint of sacke, or the value thereof, to the 
present Townsmen. 

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

within the present College Yard and near the site of Dane Hall. Replaced 
by a larger 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. 

SECOND BELL 

In College Book III 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 unques- 
tionably to a second bell. 

Mr. John Willet gave to the Colledge 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 16G0, it was ordered: 

4. Whereas (through long experience) former Laws have not been effectuall 
for the inventing of unnecessary dammages to the Colledge, 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 r veuting thereof; And that where any dammage 
shall be found done to any Study or Chamber inhabited, The p r son or p r sons 
resident therein shall make good the same, and where any dammage is done to 
y e Edifice of the Colledire (excepting: by the inevitable providence of God) to 
any vacant Chamber, or Study, the Colledire fences about the yard. pump. Bell 
or clock &c. : the same shall be made good again by all the Students resident in 
the Colledge at the time when such dammages shall be done or discovered to be 
done & shall be duly payd in their Quarter Bills to the Steward of the Col- 
ledge, who shall repay the same to the Treasurer or oth r such officers of the 
Colledge as shall be appoynted to disburse the same. (Coll. Bk. Ill, p. 24.) 

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

The Orders following were confirmed untill the Overseers shall see cause to 
take them into further consideration. (Coll. Lawes. Eadem. Lib. I, p. 37.) 

4. The Steward is from time to time to pay the Colledge officers, viz. The 
Tuto r s, Cook, Butler & Bellringer, their respective dues, sallaryes, also to allow 
the monito r s Account. (Coll. Bk. Ill, p. 34.) 

18. The Buttlar upon evy Cth day at noon shall give an Account to evy 
Schollar demanding his weeks sizings in the Buttery; & he is not bound to stay 
above halfe an hour at breakfast in the buttery, after the Tolling of y e bell ; nor 
above a quarter of an hour after thanksgiving in the Hall, at meales. 

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

23. The Bell-Ringers office is to ring the Bell (except for meales) to keep 
the clock & call the president to pravrs. for which he shall receive from the 
Steward five pound per annum. (Coll. Bk. Ill, p. o$.)

(Coll. Bk. Ill, p. 46.) 

The amount allowed as above in exchange of a bell, doubtless the ori-

bells of the colonists none are known to have exceeded three hundred 
pounds in weight. 

The steward shall deliver in, to y e Butler, his Bread at 5 s y 6 bushell, allowing 
to every Bushell 70 Loaves, ye weight of every Loafe being proportionable to 
y e Current price of wheate, as iu y e Country statute, for white bread ; & shall

At a meeting of the Corporation, August 22, 1676 : 

2. That the Butler ring y c bell at five of y e clock in y e morning, winter & 
summer, and at nine of y e clock at night throughout y e yeare, beside his ringing 
at y e other stated times for prayers & Meales. (Coll. Bk. I, p. 81.)

MASSACHUSETTS HALL, from a Sketch circa 1793 



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 flight, 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 
Willet'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 Ilolyoke, writing to the General Court, declared 
the destruction to have been complete and that nothing was saved. X 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 : 

11 The Governor 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," 

THIRD BELL 

Massachusetts College, or Hall, was built 1718-20. § On September 5, 
1722, it was " Voted, that M r 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 this 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 spnr. 

fThe tolling 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. 

J Mrs. Masearene, daughter of President Holyoke. states in a letter written Janu- 
ary 30, 17C4 to her husband John Masearene, who was then in London: "The Col- 
lege Bell also is -one." (See "The College Fire in 1764," by Henry F. Waters, in 
the Harvard Register, iii, p. 207.) 

$ It is here pertinent to note that coincident with the erection of this dormitory 
there came into use the word "Hall," emploved indifferently with the word "Col- 
lege" until 1780. With the demolition of Stoughton 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 
the subject by Albert Matthews, Esq., in Dialect Xotes (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 belfry nor 
bellcote, the bell must have been hung 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 bell, 
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 [Harvard] is the 
largest, haudsomest, 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 modern founders. Thus the sweet-toned tre- 
bles of Christ Church, Boston, have a carrying power equal to the heaviest 
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 beam, to be struck by a 
hammer on its outer sound bow. Not being supplied with headstock or 
wheel it could not be swung. 

FOURTH BELL 

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 of 
small-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 : 

"1. The waiters when the bell rinsjs [originally written k tolls'] at meal 
times shall take the furniture of the tables and the victuals at the kitchen hatch, 
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 clock may have been transferred thither 
from Massachusetts. 

FIFTH BELL 

The fate of the fourth bell is briefly indicated by an entry of January 15, 
1703 : * u Voted, that the President and the Treasurer be a Committee to 
procure the recasting of the College Bell lately split, according to their best 
discretion.

1911] Bells of Harvard College 281 

This bell, like its predecessors was ordered from England, and was, 
doubtless, of heavier metal, weighing according to the following invoice 
2 cwt. 3 q. 10 lb., or 318 pounds. Inasmuch 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 Hall, whose 
weight was probably about 2 cwt. This would leave 1 cwt. 2 q. 141b. for 
the weight of a clock 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.

SIXTH BELL 

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 " Voted, 
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 
Corporation." 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 terras 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 
bell." It may be added that this grotesque su^estion 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 Canton, 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. Revere.

282 Bells of Harvard College [July 

SEVENTH BELL 

Becoming cracked in 1836 this bell was replaced by another the same 
year weighing 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 veteran 
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 Society 
and was broken up, a part of the bronze being used for tablets placed on 
Hollis 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 once 
used in Harvard Hall was sold to be placed later on the Baptist church in 
the parish of Still River. This story finds endorsement in the history of 
the 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 further 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 Hall. 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 which 
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 have 
been retained on the chance of disposing of it later for further use. And 
this opportunity was certainly presented five 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 clear-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 
BrooknVld, 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, ^'rentham. 
While living there in retirement he managed to secure the contract for 
casting a bell for the new meeting-house in East Medway. The casting 
was done in an improvised structure and in the presence of a concourse of 
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

place, conducted by four successive generations until the year 1880. 
During this period these bells acquired a reputation equal to that of the 
best English and Belgian founders, the best known in Boston being those 
in the Mollis Street and the "West Church towers. No attempt was ever 
made at this foundry, nor by Revere, to cast a chime, or peal, a matter of 
much greater difficulty than making single bells. 

EIGHTH BELL 

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

In 1804 an appeal was made through the 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 au 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. 

NINTH BELL 

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, 1807. 

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 bein£ 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 16*0, 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).

GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH IN ENGLAND 

Transcribed by Miss Elizabeth French, and communicated by the Committee on 

English Kesearcb 

[Continued from page 187] 

French 

For many years the descendants of William French of Cambridge, Mass,' 
who came to New England in 1635 in the Defence, have supposed 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 1045-6. 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 Earl's Colne, but 
two miles from Halstead. i j 

Now, however, it appears that this supposed ancestry of William French 
is wrong, as the investigations of H. llutchins 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 his I ; 

papers and has allowed extracts to be made from them. It was he who 
first called attention to the fact that William, the son of Thomas French of 
Stanstead Hall, died in England. The evidence is as follows : 

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

Bardfield, Essex. Will proved 1551. Wife Elizabeth, whose

poses of the William and John French, son of Thomas of Stanstead 
Hall, and proves that they could nut have emigrated to New Eng-

From the Parish Registers of Biddenden 
1626 A child of Peter Branch buried unbaptized 22 September. 

[Peter Branch of Halden died on the voyage to New England in the 
ship Castle in 1638, and by his will dated 16 June 1638 bound his son 
John to Thomas Wyborne for eleven years, probably until he came of a^e, 
which would make him born about 162>5.* This John was of MarshfieTd, 
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 iS'ettlestead, Frittenden, Biddenden, 
and Halden, and his sister was in service in Hothheld. — E. F.]

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 NO genealogical representatives 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. 



Upon acceptance of a report of the Council, on motion of Charles F. Read, ) 

it was j 

Voted, That the President of the Society be authorized to appoint a member 
of the Society as one of a Standing Committee, to be composed of delegates 
from historical, patriotic and allied societies, to represent these societies in the 
matter of the change of the names of historic sites, streets or buildings in 
Massachusetts. I 

The President appointed John Albree. 

One honorary member and eleven resident members were elected by ballot.

places of the Civil War, from Harper's Ferry to Appomattox, using slides made 
under his direction for purposes of illustration. 

On motion of Colonel Francis Hesseltine a vote of thanks was given to the 
speaker. | 

After remarks by Hon. Henry Nichols Blake, late Chief Justice of Montana, 
and by Archibald M. Howe, it was voted at 3.55 p.m. to dissolve, after which

Scammon. Atkxns. — The Scammou genealogy states that the first known of 
Humphrey Scammon was the birth of his son Humphrey at Kittery, 1077. 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 Saffyn, widow of Mr. Peter Lidgett of Pis- 
ton, dated 14 Apr. 1682, gives her brother John Scammond £20: brother Rich- 
ard Scammond £20: sifter Anne Waldron £2<>; 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 uamed he was presumably the eldest, and my theory is that Hum- 
phrey was his sou. born HMO. his si>ter 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 Gurney of 

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

George Pike of Mendon : Rachel, who married James Berry of Bo>tou : 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 04 
years old before getting his name into any record. Can anything be added or 
detracted from the foregiug? Charles Thornton Libby.

Robie. — The Register, vol. 00, 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 familv were marked '••went to N. E.," namely: Henrv. born 12 
Feb. 1618; Samuel.* born 12 Feb. 1628; and William, born 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 mi^rht have lost his life in the En^li^h 
wars before getting away for New England. On the contrary. Samuel Robie 
lived perhaps thirty years In the vicinity of his brother in New Hampshire (the 
one at Hampton, thVother at New Castie). 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 lie lived in the 
city instead of in the country, on Great Island, the Boston of New Hampshire, 
afterwards New Cattle, 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 fal- 
lows :

hers as late as about! 1701, or possibly much later, as her younger Lydston 
ildren were not recorded. This is inconsistent with her being Samuel Roby's 
dow, but quite consistent with her being sister to Thomas Roby who was 
)rkincr on George Walton's bnat in 1682. The fact that she was not mentioned 
her grandfather's will is without significance. There were no small bequests 
his will; he gave everything to hi> wife, except certain lauds to his chosen 
ir, Sbadrach. afterwards colonel, and to some unprotected grandchildren. 
lis Mary Roby could not have been Henry Roby's daughter Mary, as she was

Treadway, Haynes, Howe. — That Nathaniel Treadway's wife. Suflcrana, 
was the daughter of Walter 1 Haynes of Sudbury, and not of Elder Edward 
Howe of Watertown. as stated in I860 by both Savage and Bond, is the inevi- 
table conclusion from a study of the case in its various aspects. 

Mrs. Alice Haynes of Sem'ley, Wilts, in her will dated 2 March 1620-1, men- 
tioned her sou Walter Haynes his son Thomas and daughter Elizabeth, aud 
SujTeroine and Marie Haynes. her granddaughters (Register, vol. 39, pp. 263-4). 

Walter Haynes with" his wife Elizabeth, sons Thomas. John, and Josias i, 

(under 16), and daughters Suffranc and Mary, came in the Confidence in 1633 
(Drake's Founders of New England, p. 57). 

Both Walter 1 Haynes and Nathaniel 1 Treadway had settled in Sudbury by 
1639, as they are found in the list of " 1638 or 1639 " given by Hud-on (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 reirardinsr Surferana 2 Haynes is found in the will of 
Walter 1 Haynes, dated 25 May 1659. --sis^ied again by mee"4 March 1663-4, 
and proved 4 April 1665. who mentions his wife Elizabeth, his four children 
now in New Emrland, John Haynes, Josiah Haynes, Suh'rany [or Suiirans] 
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

were sometime owned by mv son Thomas Haynes " (Middlesex Co. Probate, 
No. 10939). 

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 his three sisters he left twenty shillings, 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 Haynes. Witnesses : Joseph 
Noyes, Mary Treadway), Thomas Battelle. Ralph Day.* (Middlesex Co. Probate, 
No. 16084.) 

Savage tells us that Sufferana 2 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 kk as 
being the wife of Josiah Treadway" (History of Sudbury, p. 33). This state- j 

ment. however, is erroneous, for the given name of Sufferana's husband does 
not appear in connection with her father's will nor the probate of his estate; I 

nor does Thomas Noyes mention it. Mary Noyes. widow of Thomas, married 
secondly Michael Bacon of Woburn. 23 November 1670 (Woburn Marriages, 
p. 14). * He died 4 July 16S3. 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 lea^t, of her real estate by deeds in 1669. 1670. 1696, and 
1697. Neither John 2 Haynes nor Josiah 2 Haynes left any legacy to their sister 
Sufferana 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. fails to reveal any evidence of a 
Josiah Treadway in the Colony until the birth in 1650 of Josiah 2 (Nathaniel 1 ). 

Nathaniel Treadway was married by 1639 or the early part of 1640. for his 
first child, Jonathan, was boru at Sudbury 11 November 1^40. Mary, daughter 
of Nathaniel and Suflrany Treadway, was born at Sudbury 1 August 1642. 
Their daughter Elizabeth 'was born at Watertown 3d of the* 2d mo. 1646, and 
Deborah, 2d of the 6th mo. 1657. The other children. James. Lydia, and Josiah, m te 

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. f| 

A comparison of the Christian names of Nathaniel Treadway's children with tj 

those of the Haynes family is highly suggestive. Sufferana Haynes's mother M 

was Elizabeth. She had sisters Elizabeth and Mary, and a brother Josiah. 
The latter named a daughter Deborah, and John 2 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 
" Quansicamug" Pond in 1664 and 1665 (Middlesex Co. Deeds, vols. 3. p. 69, and 
7, p. 194; Mass. Bay Records, vol. 4, pt. 2, p. 293; Hudson's Sudbury, p. 163). 

From the foregoing it is seen that Sufferana Haynes 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 was 
married to -a Sufferana not Ions: 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 led to their business association twenty years after his removal from 4 
Sudbury ; and that there must have been visiting between the families, as his \ 
eldest daughter wa« 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 born, it seems almost superfluous to consider the Howe 
statement at all. 

Elder Edward Howe of Watertown made his will 13 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 Stouue of Sudbury" in the 
wiers and in money due from Mr. Thomas Mayhew. and. after his wife Marga- 
ret's death, whatever estate, real or personal, might be left, except that "Anne 
Stonne shall liaue one third part of all the Cattle ""(Suffolk Co. Probate, vol. 1, p. 
31; Register, vol. 3. 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 



1911]

Mrs. George Bunker. She gave 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 divided by Treadway and Stone, 
three fiftbs 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 Sutteraua 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 Elder Howe's," "land commonly 
Called by ye name of Hows field," and w ' land originally granted to Elder How 
of Watertown." On i 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 r 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 Nathaniel Treadway and Ann Stone were brother and sister and 
Edward Howe was their uncle, or the kinship was more remote, or they were 
his wards, may later be settled, but at present it is matter for speculation only.

Page. — Bond's History of Watertown, p. 383, states that Samuel 3 Page, son 
of Samuel- Page, went to South Carolina. The following deeds and wills prove 
that it was Samuel 3 Pas;e, son of John 2 and Faith (Dunster) Page, who went to 
South Carolina, that he married twice, had a large family and, returning to Gro- 
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, 
8 June 1713, and following each other in the book. The first (p. 311) : t; John

for to give it to me bv Will or Deed," etc. Signed by John Page, Sr., and Sam- 
uel Page, 13 Jan. 1693. 

Second deed (p. 311) : 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 1713. 

Third deed (p. 312) : t; Samuel Page Senr of South Carolina . . . for and in 
consequence of £38 3s. paid by Joseph Sanderson of Groton" . . . sells to him 
" a five acre right lyimr and being in Groton as followeth. First the houselot

Page " [etc., for ail other pieces mentioned in the first deed]. Signed bv Samuel 
Pa.se 30 Apr. 1713. 

This Samuel Pacre married first a daughter of Nathaniel Lawrence, probably 
Sarah Lawrence who deceased before her father, as in his will in 1718 he leaves 
a bequest to son Samuel Pa«re (Lawrence Geuealos^r. vol. 17. p. 18). By the word- 
ing of the will of Samuel Paue I should judge the following children belonged to 
her : Samuel, born 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 Dauiel. On the Lunenbunr records he entered these children with 



298 2fotes [July 

the rest of his family, and at this time he had a wife Martha. Children on rec- 
ord : Elizabeth, born 23 Mar. 1719: Zachariah, born 10 Apr. 1721. died 1721; 
Daniel, born 10 Aug. 1722 : Martha, born 31 Mar 1725, died 172S ; Benjamin, born 
12 Oct. 1727; Thomas, born G Sept. 1730. 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 lie married thirdly, 9 July 1747. Sarah 
Parce of Leominster. He died on 7 Sept. 1747. His will (Worcester Co. Pro- 
bate, vol. 2, p. G55), 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 sous 
of Martha, mentioning first "son Daniel, son Thomas." his daughters -Heirs 
of dau. Sarah Farnsworth dee'd," " dau. Elizabeth Parker," then •• goldheaded 
cane to son Samuel Page." and ,w all the residue to be divided between my sons 
Samuel Page. Joseph Page. "William Page. Nathaniel Page, and David Page," 
with reservations for wife Sarah. Sons Jonathan and Nathaniel Page, executors. 

All the sons, with the exception of Samuel Jr., settled with the lather 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 Me'dford. 
He died in 1749. and his age at death makes him born 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 that he married his second wife there.

pany in London. About a year ago Gibbs came & said he had not received the

Historical Intelligknce 

Gkazkruook-Skwael. — An interesting feature shown in Mr. George Graze- 
brook's Pedigree of the Family of Grazebrook, omitted from the book notices 
(p. 104), is the male descent* of the ancestors of Margaret Grazebrook, the 
mother of the Henry Sewall, born in April 1576, emigrated to Xew England and 
died in 1657, three of whose descendants became chief justices of Massachusetts. 



Anne Hutchinson Memorial. — A bronze tablet to the memory of Mrs. Anne 
Hutchinson has been erected at Split Hock by the Colonial Dames of the State of 
New York. Money will be needed for grading, sodding, shrubbery, paths, 
railing, etc.. and subscriptions for the<e purposes may be sent to J. Edward 
Weld," 55 East 5'Jth Street, New York City. 



Lee Family in England. — Euirene F. McPike, 1 Park Row, Chicago, re- 
port > that considerable information concerning the early history of the Lee 
family in England has already been collected by Ralph J. Beevor, M.A., 
(Trinity Collge, Cambridge), of •• Langley," Lcmsford Road, St. Albans. Eng- 
land. Mr. 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 
respon.-e-coupou. 



Eugenics .and Genealogy.— 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 which will 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 oilice 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. 

Vermont Vital Records Act.— The following act was introduced by Sena- 
tor Darling at the last session of the Vermont legislature, and took effect upon 
its passage :

Salvage from the Fire in the New York State Library, Albany 

Books 

From the 450,000 printed books which were destroyed with the New T York 
State Library in the tire of March L".». 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 or 
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 voimnes— 7000 genealogies, »0o0 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 Connecticut, 
Massachusetts, and all of Rhode 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 books 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 rebindthem. 

The salvage is being rapidly catalogued. This will have been finished by June 
1. At that time active efforts will be begun 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 is 
so considerable, it will be well to ascertain first from the Library whether con- 
templated -lifts are needed. Li^t>> of books sent to the New York State Library, 
162 State St., Albany, X. 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 >o 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. 

Manuscripts 

N. Y. Col. Mss., 1G38-1S00. 103 v. About 70 v. saved, in fairly good state of

WILLIAM CARVER BATES 

By Charles Sidxey Ensign', LL.B., of ZSTewton, Mass. 

William Carver 7 Bates was born in Hanover, Mass., May 25, 
1838, and died in Newton, November 6, 1910. His father was 
Rufus, 6 who married Hnldah Keith. The paternal line is Gamaliel,' 
Clement, 4 Joseph, 3 James, 2 and Clement 1 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 6on 
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 born 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 Ma>/flov:er 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, lie was confined in the prisons of Libby and Rich- 
mond, Va., for two months. New Orleans, La., four months, and 
Salisbury, X. C, four months — in all ten months. 

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

Soon after his marriage Mr. Bates became a member of the firm 
of Holmes, Bates and Xichols, commission merchants in Boston, 
who transacted a large business in the British Provinces, the West 
Indies, and South America. During his mercantile career he trav- 
elled in the British Xorth American Provinces, the British West 
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 Xew Orleans Exposition in 1884, he entered into 
the service of the Mutual Life Insurance Company of Xew York, 
in which he remained until his death. 

In 1866 the family removed to Xewton, 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 Xonantum (Xewton), 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 from 
which is expended annually in prize essays on historical subjects 
written by pupils of the Xewton public schools. He was elected a 
member of the Xewton Common Council in 1889 and 1890. At 
the celebration of Xewton'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, 
Xo. 62, G. A. R., Xewton; Massachusetts Association of the 
Prisoners of War ; Hunniwell Club, Xewton ; Tuesday Club, Xew- 
ton, before which he read some seventy-three papers; Xewton 
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 150th anniversary of Hano- 
ver and dedication of the soldiers' monument, in 187 G ; Memorial 
Day address in Xewton 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 unique volume named fr 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 : 
n Rambles in the Tropics," "Venezuela and British Guiana," "Creole 
Folk-Lore, " and K 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 Xew 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 Council 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 would 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.

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

* The village of Harrietsham lies next to Lenham, and seven miles southeast of 
Maidstone. It contains a very ancient church, the earliest part of which is said to 
date from 1150. The old font, in which doubtless the Hinckley children were baptized, 
still remains. Steden Street, where one of John Hynckley's tenements wa«, is not 
a name known to the present inhabitants of Hi-rrietsham, but it seems probable that 
it was in that part of the village where rises Stede Hill, at the foot of which nestles the 
church, and on the crest on which is Stede Court.

[The foregoing entry is from the part of the list assigned to Cran- 
brook. The principal industry of Cranbrook was the manufacture of 
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.J 

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

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. 
Children, baptized at Biddenden : 

i. Stephen, bapt. 18 Sept. 1547; bur. there 28 Sept. 1547. 

2. ii. John, bapt. 17 Dec. 1553. 

Clement, bapt. 2 Feb. 1533-9, Symond, bapt. 20 July 1545, bur. 20 
July 1551, Rachell, bapt. 19 Apr. 1551, Christopher, Richard, Katherine, 
and Susanna may also have been his children, but owing to the lack of 
Seelis wills it is impossible to settle this point. 

2. John Seelis of Biddenden, baptized there 17 Dec. 1553, was buried 

at Biddenden 10 Feb. 1609-10. He married, 28 Apr. 1578, 
Mary Stedman, daughter of Richard of Biddenden, baptized 
there 2 Aug. 1553. She was probably the "Widow Seelis" who 
was buried at Biddenden 6 May 1614. 
Children, baptized at Biddenden : 

i. John, bapt. 22 Feb. 1578-9. 

3. ii. Kichakd, bapt. 29 Nov. 1581. . 

iii. Anne, bapt. 18 Sept. 158(5 ; bur. at Bidaenden 13 Aug. 1593. 

iv. Mary, bapt. 2 Apr. 15 C J2. 

v. Elizabeth, bapt. 23 Feb. 1594-5; probably d. young. 

vi. Moses, bapt. 21 May 1598. 

vii. Elizabeth, bapt. 9 June 1605. 

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

land, " planter," was baptized at Biddenden 26 Nov. 1581, and 
died in Sew England between 17 Sept. 1653 and 26 Mar. 1656. 
His first wife, name unknown, was buried at Biddenden 10 Aug. 
1612. lie 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 Sealis's death is un- 
known. Richard Sealis went to New England, and married third- 
ly, at Scituate, 15 December 1637, Widow Eglin IIanford, 
sifter 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, 
p. 335.

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

John Ttlden, Senior, of Crotehole in the parish of Benynden, 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. 
Children : 

i. Jonx, b. bef. 1445; living in 14S0. (Was Elizabeth, daughter of 
John Telden, who is mentioned in Joaue Telden's will, the daugh- 
ter of this John?) 
ii. Robert, b. bef. 1445; see below. 

iii. Thomas, b. after 1454 : m. Margaret ; 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- 
riage. 
iv. Altce, b. after 1438; unm. in 1474. 
v. Agnes, b. after 143S ; unm. in 1474. 

Robert Telden of Benynden, born 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 bis 
death, as he makes provision for any posthumous child. 

Children : 

i. Jonx, b. after 1461. 

ii. Johane, 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 
yet been found to prove the connection. 

1. Richard Tilden, yeoman, the testator of l5C)5-6 y 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? 
Children : 

2. i. John, b. after 1541. 

3. ii. Thomas, b. after 1541. 

iii. Julian, b. after 1546; m. at Tenterden, 21 June 1568, Thomas 

Fynche.

2. John Tilden of Tenterden, born probably at Benenden after 1541, 

was buried at Tenterden 29 Jan. 1025-&. He married there, 23 Jan.

Nov. 1615. We learn from the church records that he was jurat

3. Thomas Tilden of Tenterden, the testator of 1G1G-17, born probably 
at Benenden after 1541, was buried at Wye 6 June 1017. He 
married first at Tenterden. 10 Mar. 1576-7, Alice Biggs, who 
was buried at Tenterden 13 May 1503 ; married secondly, 13 ?Tov. 
15'J3, Ellen Kvernden, widow, of Rolvinden. The date of her 
death is unknown, but Thomas Tilden left a widow Alice, probably 
the mother of his sou Freegift. Between 1G04 and 1014 Thomas 
Tilden left Tenterden, and moved perhaps to East 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 
appear.

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 Lydia, who, Savage thinks, was perhaps daughter of 
Thomas Bourne. But as Thomas Bourne was born about 1581, he 
would have been only twenty-seven when Nathaniel Tilden's eldest 
child was born, and therefore Savage's conjecture is wrong. The 
"son Tilden " 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 Bourne. 
That the wife Lydia was the mother of all of Nathaniel Tilden'9 
children is proved by the bequest in Joseph Tilden's will : "to my 
sister Lydia Tilden, late wife of my brother Nathaniel Tilden . . . 
and to her two daughters who are married in New England " 
(AVaters's Gleanings, vol. 1, p. 71). These daughters were born 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 1622 
and jurat — a jurat was also justice of the peace — in 1624, 1625, 
1627, and 1629. In New England he was also a town ofneer-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 ff.)

In Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica, Series 2, vol. 1, p. 333, there 
is printed a Tilden pedigree, taken from the Visitation of London, 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 broken spear inverted gules, head or, environed 
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 r 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, had 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. Kiciiard, citizen and merchant of London, aged 63 in 1687, who m. 
Hannah Miller, dau. of John of Biggleswalde, co. Bedford, and 
had sons Richard, aged 22, unm. ; Daniel, aged 16; Samuel, aged 
14; Gabriel, as;ed 13; and Jonathan, aged 9; and daughters Han- 
nah, wife of Thanks Holland of Stepney ; and Rose and Mary, both 
living unm. in 1687. It is this Richard Tilden, citizen and mer- 
chant of London, who signs the pedigree. 

ii. George, of Breade, co. Sussex, aged 60 in 1687, who m. and had 
issue. 

£ j£?tha* } both dead wlthont Issue - 

i. Anne, wife of Robkrt Gibbon of Beckley, co. Sussex. 
Ii. Sarah, wife of Thomas Bedingfield of Dover, co. Kent. 



The Jonathan Tilden of this pedigree, with second wife Alice Hall, 
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's knowledge regarding his father's family. He does not mention any 
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 Tilden 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 his right to bear 
the arms described above. Since he tried to trace bis 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 his 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. 381, and Landed 
Gentry. The Tyldens of Milsted bore the same arms as Richard Tilden 
of London, but their crest was somewhat different. According to Berry, 
William Tylden of Worrasliill, Kent, who died in 1613 and who was father 
of Richard Tylden, the purchaser of the manor of Milsted, was a descend- 
ant of William 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 i instead of a y. 
The third branch settled at Meld, in Kent, and spell their name with an i. M
