Pioneers of Massachusetts, 


Drawn from Records of the Colonies, Towns and Churches, 
and other Contemporaneous Documents. 





221 Columbus Ave., 

Copyrigrht 1900, by Charles H. Pope 



The Pioneers of Massachusetts de- 
serve high honor from the people of the 
United States of America. They com- 
posed and signed, in the cabin of the 
Mayflower, Nov. ii, 1620, the grand 
though simple "Compact," model of all 
our constitutions; they organized Gen- 
eral Courts, patterns of our legislative 
bodies; courts of judicature and com- 
missions for the settlement of minor 
cases, — "to end small causes," — types of 
our municipal and justices' courts; they 
gathered congregational bodies of wor- 
shippers, embodiments and types of our 
best, fraternal, religious life; they crys- 
talized the old Saxon town idea into 
systematic town meetings; they first 
subscribed to support schools for their 
children, then devised the scheme of 
bearing the burden by general taxation, 
making schools by the people, for the 
people. And they and their descendants 
went forth to settle other parts of the 
great land, and built the foundation of 
new states out of granite, quarried from 
Massachusetts ledges. Thus it is the 
"Commonwealth of Massachusetts" 
where the largest number of American 
families had their first home this side 
of the Atlantic; and to her records and 
relics come yearly the largest proces- 
sions of pilgrims, seeking to obtain 
clues to the still earlier history of their 
ancestry. Love of family and desire to 
know and preserve the memory of 
worthy fore-fathers lead many inquirers 
into this field. The admirable organiza- 
tions which keep alive the memory of 
the Mayflower passengers, which place 
fresh laurels on the graves of colonial 

worthies and warriors, which pay honor 
to the guardians of a country in the face 
of foreign oppression, the founders of 
our republican institutions — these socie- 
ties have deepened the interest and 
greatly advanced the knowledge of our 

Thus an increasing amount of exam- 
ination of old records is made; and the 
courteous town and church clerks, re- 
corders of deeds and wills, custodians of 
filed documents in court houses and the 
office of the Secretary of the Common- 
wealth, have abundant opportunity for 
the display of that remarkable affability 
and helpfulness which characterize the 
officials of our state. 

Numerous family histories and sketch- 
es of the founders have appeared, some 
of which are models of research and 
honesty; what a fine list that is which 
Munsell's Sons present in their Ameri- 
can Genealogist! Other books are in 
preparation and much investigation and 
compilation is being done for simple, 
private satisfaction. 

But the work of historical researcn 
is an art; records, ever so accessible, 
need skilled readers and interpreters. 
Apparatus is demanded for the work; 
charts are needed for the chart-makers. 

John Farmer, M.A., having explored 
to the best of his ability a part of the 
early records, published in 1628 "A Gen- 
ealogical Register of the First Settlers 
of New England," which had great 
value, and marked him as a benefactor 
of American students of history. Dr. 
James Savage constructed a treatise on 
somewhat different lines, and issued in 

1858 his "Genealogical Dictionary of 
New England." In this four-volume 
work he undertook to present the chief 
points of interest in the life of every set- 
tler of each of the New England states 
from the settlement of Plymouth to the 
close of the century; and to trace out 
each family through four generations. 
How well he succeeded in this vast en- 
terprise, how much information he 
amassed and presented may be told 
by any genealogist of experience. 
The scheme was Titanic; the service 
rendered was Herculean; the name of 
Dr. Savage deserves high renown. 
But full success in such a vast under- 
taking was at that date simply impos- 
sible; and searchers find at the close 
of each volume an alarming list of errata, 
discovered by the author while the print- 
ers were doing their work; and the roll- 
ing years have added astonishingly to 
the list. Had Dr. Savage lived he 
would have issued a corrected edition, 
no doubt. 

But, meantime, by the liberality of the 
Athens of America and some lesser 
cities and towns, a good number of 
ancient town and church records 
have been copied with minute care 
and printed verbatim; the annals of 
both colonies have been made acces- 
sible in this way; and Suffolk county 
has set a fine example by its publication 
of almost a dozen volumes of deeds. 
The state has issued Bradford's History; 
the notarial records of Lechford and 
Aspinwall have been brought out; these 
three volumes illuminating the period of 
the Pioneers remarkably. 

The Mass. Historical Society, the His- 
toric-Genealogical Society, Essex Insti- 
tute, and other organizations have fixed 
in type many documents which the tooth 
of time had begun to gnaw ; and the task 
of the searcher has been wonderfully 

lightened. These printed books and pa- 
pers, however, contain only a small 
minority of the records essential to 
the making of such a work as Farmer 
and Savage designed; but they make 
the difference between an impossible and 
a practicable undertaking. 

The present writer conceived, quite a 
number of years since, the plan of mak- 
ing a revised edition of Dr. Savage's 
magnificent work. This scheme was 
revolved and discussed with gentlemen 
of wide acquaintance with the subject. 
At last this conclusion was reached: no 
man can to-day construct a trustworthy 
compendium of so many families 
and so many generations as Dr. 
Savage attempted. The problem must 
be separated into parts; divide et impera. 


narrows the field to the single state 
of Massachusetts, as bounded to-day; re- 
stricts the genealogy to the first settlers 
and their children only; and confines the 
study still further to those persons who 
came here early enough to be founda- 
tion-layers, first fellers of the primeval 
forests, first ploughers of the virgin soil, 
first makers of homes in the new coun- 
ery, first worshippers in the log meeting- 
houses, first freeman and officers in the 
plantations and colonies. What were 
these but "pioneers," whose bravery, 
earnestness, fidelity, love, made them 
worthy to be enrolled by themselves, an 
honorable list of heroes and heroines. 
All who came after the year 1650 found 
Massachusetts a reality, a single state, 
practically, although under two frater- 
nal colonial governments; all who came 
before that date helped essentially to 
make it. Although their jurisdiction ex- 
tended over a wider field than the pres- 

ent state limits, there seems to the writ- 
er a propriety in restricting this volume 
in this way. 

Later volumes by this or some other 
hand may present the Pioneers of Maine, 
New Hampshire, Rhode Island and 
Connecticut for that early period, with 
all the light now thrown on their m.on- 
uments. This list is large enough for 
one volume, grand enough for the cit- 
izens of one state to call its very own. 

The limit of the "pioneer" period is 
an open question. It might be fixed by 
the statement of Winthrop in his His- 

"2 (4) 1641. 
The parliament of England setting upon a 
general reformation, both of church and state 
. . . this caused all men to stay in Eng- 
land in expectation of a new world, so as few 
came to us." 

Although "few" arrived after 1641, 
yet the records show occasional ad- 
ditions; and a man did not always buy 
or receive an allotment of land or join 
the church or do anything which was 
noted in public records for several years 
after his arrival. Accordingly the limit 
has been fixed at 1650, to include all 
who came before the beginning of that 
"reformation" which Winthrop counted 
so significant, and to allow for the full 
development of the state in its life here 
and its significance abroad. 

The names here given are all which 
have been found in the journals and lists 
of the colonies, towns, churches and 
counties of the period, 1620-1650, inclu- 
sive, as well as those perpetuated in the 
passenger-lists of that time which have 
survived to our day. When once a name 
has been found within that period, it 

has been followed to the last day of the 
pioneer's life; in a few cases this has ex- 
tended to the second or third decade of 
the following century. This has neces- 
sitated the scrutiny of the documents 
until 1720 for record of deaths and pro- 
bate proceedings. 

While the names, dates and facts here 
stated have been taken by the compiler 
from the original documents or from 
such copies of them as have been made 
and verified by the highest authority, 
references are often given to pages in 
the Historic-Genealogical Register or 
other publications where copies or ab- 
stracts of the same may be seen. This 
is particularly noteworthy in the case of 
the exceedingly valuable notes of Eng- 
lish wills, made by Henry F. Waters, 
A.M., and the abstracts of Suffolk Co. 
wills by William B. Trask, A.M. 

The original words and phrases are 
quoted generally. Only in very rare in- 
stances has the compiler ventured to in- 
troduce an opinion of his own, preferring 
to put the reader in possession of the 
materials out of which an individual 
opinion may be formed. If you had the 
books before you and could read the 
peculiar chirography; if you critically 
studied the words employed, and tested 
your impressions by comparing one 
document with another; if you brought 
years of practise in this sort of 
reading to bear on the documents, — you 
would write down in your book the 
very things which are here presented. 

This volume represents the relative 
amount of matter which exists to-day 
about these people. Not that all is 
copied; far from it. But this is a char- 
acterizing list; this is sufficient to rank 
the pioneers for inspection. A full copy 
of every original line about them would 
not change materially the impression 
here given. 


Governor William Bradford, who is 
the highest authority on the subject, 
tells us that the persons who came to 
Plymouth were called Puritans; that 
their English neighbors opprobriously & 
most injuriously imposed upon them 
that name of Puritans which it is said the 
Novatians out of prid did assume & take 
unto themselves." The colonists of 
Massachusetts Bay were chiefly Puri- 
tans, also; the most perfect understand- 
ing existing between the religious lead- 
ers of the two colonies in most respects. 

The nucleus of the colony of Ply- 
mouth, every one knows, was the little 
band of men and women who met in 
apostolic fashion in a private house at 
Scrooby, Nottinghamshire, on the flat 
banks of the Idle; whence they removed 
in 1607-8 to Leyden, Holland, and then 
came toward the sunset, full of faith in 
a coming day. The germ of the colony 
of Massachusetts Bay was a company of 
business men who met at London, plan- 
ning for a settlement wherein should 
dwell righteousness and profit. But 
Dorchester was founded by a church as 
definitely organized as that of Scrooby, 
and brought its two ministers, chosen 
in Plymouth, Eng., in 1629. 

Rev. John Cotton, in 1629, accom- 
panied some of his parishioners from 
their home in old Boston to Southamp- 
ton, whence they were to sail for New 
England, and charged them to "take ad- 
vice of them of Plymouth and do noth- 
ing to offend them." When Salem and 
Cnarlestown churches were organized 
the brethren of Plymouth church were 
consulted and similar statements of faith 
and polity adopted. 

Bradford says: "Rev. Mr. Warham 
of the church in Dorchester expressed a 

desire to one of Plymouth Church in 
1630, to be on friendly terms with that 
church and people, and he declared him- 
self satisfied with their ecclesiastical gov 
ernment and proceedings." 

Thomas HoUamd of Yarmouth was 
"still a member of a separated church 
in Old England" in 1641, when his babe 
was baptized at Barnstable. Michael 
Metcalf of Dedham left on record an 
account of the persecutions he had en- 
dured at Norwich, Eng., for his puri- 
tanic life. Governor John Winthrop 
wrote honeyed words of farewell to the 
Church of England, and straightway 
joined in founding a separate church un- 
der the Charlestown oak. Robert Mas- 
sail was dismissed from Boston church 
"to the church of Christ at Dover in 
England" in 1646, and John Westgate 
to "the church of Pulham Mary in Nor- 
folk, Eng.," in 1674; and Mrs. Lydia 
Banks, a resident of Salem from 1636 
to 1642, was dismissed "to a church at 
London of which Mr. Nye is pastor," 
at her request, 6 (9) 1664. Mr. John- 
son was received to the church of 
Charlestown 29 (5) 1660, "by dismission 
from a church of Christ at Canterbury 
in Old England." Mrs. Elizabeth Con- 
ant's child was baptized at Salem 12 (11) 
1662, "upon ye letter from ye church at 
Corke testifying of her membership 

These and many other evidences prove 
the identity of the people of both these 
colonies with the grand Puritan host of 
England, described so admirably 
by Macaulay in his Essay on Mil- 
ton; who, whether remaining in the 
organization of the church of England 
or refusing to conform to ceremonies 
they believed anti-christian, were one in 
pure faith and life, one in resolute at- 
tempts to carry the doctrines of the 
Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood 

of Man into all departments of religious 
and secular life. The term Bradford ab- 
horred was really a good, discriminatmg 
title, and it has passed into history. It 
is not correct, therefore, to call the 
people of one of the colonies "Pilgrims" 
and those of the other "Puritans," for 
both were Puritans in the fact of a holy 
determination to avoid every impure, de- 
grading fashion and to live by the stand- 
ards of the Revealed Word of God; and 
both were Pilgrims in the fact of making 
a journey from a high religious motive. 
Tliese people, however, were not 
perfect, and they learned slowly the 
art of giving and taking liberty. The 
annals of that early period are full 
of strife; our ancestors brought over 
many an old notion of intolerance 
and persecution, which they were suf- 
ficiently "conforming" to practice; 
it took long years for Puritanism 
to escape from those toils ; but by and by 
came the real fruits of the system. In 
some cases a person is said to have been 
"in court" when the whole cause was 
the harsh method employed by the gov- 
ernment in attempting to guard what 
seemed to the rulers the essential ele- 
ments of pure religion and good gov- 
ernment. The severe legislation of the 
Puritans was simply imitation of Eng- 
lish and continental methods. The 
cruelties of the Middle ages lingered in 
statute books on the other side of the 
Atlantic longer than they did here. 
Puritanism actually softened the laws, 
increased the protection of the weak; 
and it was here, where the Bible was 
widely opened and Jesus Christ was 
acknowledged absolute King, that po- 
litical and religious liberty and fra- 
ternity first found complete expression. 

the occupations, estates and social stand- 
ing of the Pioneers. The summary of 
these, given on another page, is well 
worth studying. 

The number who took to themselves 
the designation "gentleman," or had it 
attached to their names by the writers 
of passenger-lists, deeds, wills, church, 
town or court lists, is not very large; 
in some cases the title was used when a 
person had been in public office here, 
and was given by recorders, without 
reference to social standing in England. 
With very few exceptions, however, 
those noted as of "gentle" blood were 
entitled to use coats of arms and crests. 
Probably quite a number more had this 
dignity at home, but did not so appear 
on New England records. But the great 
majority of the pioneers were the plain, 
untitled people, bred to industry and 
economy, trained to professions, mer- 
chandise, trades, husbandry or service, 
'those who came of noble families were 
often apprenticed in childhood to learn 
some trade, or to do house work; and 
persons who were employed, even in 
positions of trust and dignity, bore 
the title "servant" like humble menials. 
They were educated beyond the average 
of English people of their time, and 
their habits were cleaner, more virtuous 
than the majority of their old associates. 
And thus they had the stuff and force as 
well as the faith and patience for the en- 
terprise which made such drafts on 
body, mind and character as the laying 
of the foundations of a commonwealth. 

One exceedingly valuable feature of 
this compilation is the presentation of 

The writer wishes to acknowledge 
very gratefully the privileges and aid ex- 
tended to him by the clerks of the old 
towns and churches, registers of Pro- 
bate, recorders of Deeds, and custodians 
of ancient books and documents. In

long list of names to whom similar accomplished, 
acknowledgements are cheerfully ren- 


1. Look for many variations of surnames ; allow for phonetic spelling and carelessness 
The diphthong ea was usually pronounced a long ; consonants were often doubled after long 
vowels ; ph and f were interchanged recklessly ; and other alterations were loosely made, such as 
Hayward, Heywood, Howard and Hawoorth. The indexing of such matter is therefore difficult ; 
and one must sometimes look on several pages before discovering a desired name. Not only did 
public recorders vary the orthography, but a man sometimes spelled his own name in two or 
more ways. 

2. Always consult the index, and there exercise the same liberal method. 

3. Fail not to guage the meaning of the Abbreviations employed, since many lines of 
original record have sometimes been compressed into one, in this volume. 

4. The source from which a particular word or statement has been drawn can be inferred 
in most cases from its nature; as proprietorship and town office from town records; chui-ch 
membership, dismission, etc., from those of the churches; purchase and sale of lands from county 
Records of Deeds; depositions, giving age, etc., from records or files of the Coiu-ts or Colonies; 
designations of trade, occupation or social position were usually given in deeds, but sometimes in 
records of admission to churches; wills and administrations of estates in Probate Records or those 
o£ the Comity or Colony. When an item was found in an unusual place, the source has been noted. 

5. The dates are given as they were recorded. March 25 was New Tear's Day in England 
and her colonies in the seventeenth century. It is at once a blunder and a crime to alter such 
dates to suit a calendar which our Forefathers did not use. Their "style" was just exactly "old 
style," not at all "new." From January 1 to March 25, during which some other nations used the 
new year number, they often wrote a double date; as "3 February, 1621-2" ; but February was still 
"moneth 12," and even 24 March was in the old year, although the month, by anticipation of 
"day 25," was "moneth 1." 

6. The Author will be grateful for information of any error discovereil in this volume, and 
for facts of definite importance respecting the Pioneers recorded in either American or English 
documents of that period.

history of its foundation, was the son ot 
William and Alice (Hanson,) Bradford, of 
Austerfleld, Eng., bapt. March 19, 1589-90. 
Resided at home till the Sci-ooby church, of 
which he was a member, removed to Hol- 
land, about 1607. He came to N. E. in the 
Mayflower, signed the Compact; and made 
his home at Plymouth. 

No man did more than he in work as well 
as care, in the secular and religious Ufe of 
the Colony. He wrote with his own hand 
a detailed history of the movement, from 
the time when the church was organized at 
Serooby until the year 1650. Into this he 
introduced numerous letters and lists of 
names which bring the life of the Colony 
before the reader in a very vivid way. The 
book was kept in the hands of his descend- 
ants until the year 1728, when his grand- 
son, Maj. John Bradford, lent it to Rev. 
Thomas Prince, of Boston, to be used in his 
preparation of a New England Chronology. 
.4.t some later time it was carried from Bos- 
ton to England, and placed in the library 
of the Pulham Palace. Thence it was 
brought, by the offices of of Hon. George F. 
Hoar and Hon. Thomas F. Bayard, lately 
Ambassador of the United States, and de- 
posited in the office of the Secretary of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, with ap- 
propriate ceremonies May 26, 1897. The 
State government has issued a very beauti- 
ful edition of the work, which is sold at the 
office of the Secretary at $1.00 a copy.

VARD COLLEGE, was bapt. at Southwark, 
CO. Surrey, Eng., Nov. 29, 1607, son of Robert 
Harvard, (name sometimes spelt Harvie, 
Harvye, Haverede, Harwar and Haward,) 
citizen and butcher; and of his wife Kath- 
arine Rogers, a native of Stratford on Avon. 
The father was bur. Aug. 24, 1625; his wid- 
ow m. 10 Jan. 1625-6, Jobu Elletson, citizen 
and cooper, who d. in June, 1626; she m. 28 
May, 1627, Richard Yearwood, citizen and 
grocer, who d. in Sept. or Oct., 1632. The 
wills of these persons, of the father of Mrs. 
Harvard, and of Thomas, bro. of John, dis- 
covered and collated by Mr. Henry F. 
Waters, are presented in the Register for 
July, 1885. 

Mr. Harvard was matriculated at Eman- 
uel Coll., Cambridge, 7 July, 1631, A. B. in 
1632 and A. M. in 1635. He married Anne, 
dau. of Mr. John Sadler, vicar of Patcham, 
CO. Sussex, b. Aug. 24, 1014. 

He sold some of his lands 16 Feb. 1636-7, 
and sailed for N. E. soon after. He settled 
at Charlestown, where he was adm. a towns- 
man 6 (6) 1637, a special vote giving him 
"promise of such accommodations as best 
we can." He and his wife were adm. chh. 
6 (9) 1637. As the pastor, Mr. Thomas 
James, had recently gone away, Mr. Harv- 
ard officiated in his place, in conjunction 

HARVARD, cont. 

with the teacher, Mr. Symmes, though his 
ill-health forbade his being installed. John- 
son speaks highly of his preaching. The 
town chose him a memb. of a com. to con- 
sider something tending towards a body of 
laws 26 April, 1638. 

The Gen. Court had voted to establish 
a college at Newetowne, (Cambridge;) and 
he, being one of the teaching elders of a 
neighboring church, must have felt the 
needs and realized the importance of the 
infant institution. He d. of consumption 
Sept. 14, 1038; and left to the college at 
Cambridge one half of his estate, a sum 
amounting to 700 11. [S.] In consideration 
of this gift the Gen. Court ordered 13 March, 
163S-9, that " the college formerly agreed 
upon to bee built at Cambridg shalbee called 
Harvard Colledge." 

He left no issue. The widow married 
early in 1039 Mr. Thomas Allen, who was 
installed shortly after as colleague pastor 
at Charlestown. The Court granted to him 
500 acres of land 6 June, 1639, "in regard 
of Mr. Harvard's gift." They returned to 
England about 16.50. 


Joseph, husbandman, of Gamscolne, 
Essex, Eng., died on the voyage to this 
country. Bequeathed his estate to be lent 
to poor christians in these plantations for 
two years; then to be returned to his bro.
