Family of Albree. 

We can trace this Medford family to Nassau, in the Island of New Providence, thecapital of the 
Bahamas. In 1672, the English government sent .Mr. Collingworth to superintend the settlement 
of that island and its chief city b\ Englishmen. The attempt succeeded but imperfectly ; because 
the coasts were infested with pirates, and the Spanish were moved bj jealousy to check English 
power. Mr. Collingworth, after a few years, resigned his office in despair; and the govern- 

tppointed Mr (.'lark governor of the island, and gave him means tor sustaining himself. 
The early English settlers wire selected for their energy and enterprise; and they fixed on 
Nassau as their central port. The place grew and flourished; but its Spanish enemies were 
numerous and bloodthirsty. They made a sudden and warlike descent upon it. and cap- 
tured the brave Clark; ami, in order to show their future intention-, the) " roasted the Eng- 
alive." In one of these barbaric assaults, in 1G99, the unoffending inhabitants 

hi to the sword; and two little children were that day made orphans. One was 
named John Albree, who was born in 1688; and the other was his sister, Elizabeth, win. was 
three years younger. The brother fled with hi- Bister to Beek protection in a Boston vessel, 
which was there for cargo. The captain knew that the tragic story of the children was true; 
and, witli the characteristic warmth of a sailor's heart, he took the weeping orphans to his 

arms, ami nil. red to bring them to Boston and provide tor them. They accepted, but wished 

Something from their father's house. The captain went to the house; hut could find 

nothing worth taking awa '/ English one-day clock, which the plunderers had 

That he took; and that clock is now m possess! il Misses Elizabeth and Lucy Ann 

hi keep time well, although two hundred years old. 
I. oh in the year 1700, John Ubree and Elizabeth Albree arrived in Boston, and were ten- 
derly cared tor by the family oi the captain who brought them. They wen- put t.> school, and 
taught to labor; and, when John was fourteen years old, he was indented as an apprentice, 
. to a weaverin Maiden. [lis master found him a silent and thoughtful boy, 
and made him a good weaver. His sister, at her own request, became an inmate of his mas- 
amily. These children annually received, from an unknown hand in New Providence, 

generous gifts of raw cotton and fruits This cotton hail Seeds in it; and a gin was Bent with 

which to clear out the seeds. After they iie.au f age, these benefacti Their 

father was pi.iiiabh a cotton planter; hen. a' the son's preference for the trade of cotton- weaver. 
when he became ol I to Medford, and soon afterwards purchased _a small house, 

which st l mi the -pnt now occupied bj the bouse of Mr. Thatcher Magoun, jun. His sister 

became his housekeeper. In May, 1711. he married a near relative of Governor Belcher,— 
Miss i. tie, of Boston. When his first child was burn, he wished t.. have it bap- 

tized, and named Joseph in honor of it- grandfather ; but not knowing whether he himself had 

aptized, either in England or New Providence, he resolved to ask baptism for himself; 
and on I 6,1718,hen ite, and then offered his son. After a few years, 
he sold hi- house and garden, and bough) a (arm of twenty -two acres ; which, by three subse- 
quent purcha irged I hundred acres. It W8S much of the farm BOW occupied

1 BROOKS, THOMAS, the first of the name in New England, 

came, it is supposed, from Suffolk, England, and settled in 
Watertown, where lie had a lot assigned him, on the main road, 
in 1631. He was made a freeman in 1636; and, two years 
afterAvards, his name, which had disap] eared from the Water- 
town records, is to be seen on those of Concord, where he was 
constable in 1638. He settled in this latter town, and owned 
larye estates there; in consequence, he was appointed to the 
various town-offices. In 1660, he, with his son-in-law, Timothy 
"Wheeler, bought lour hundred acres of land in Medford, for four 
hundred and four pounds sterling, which he owned at the time of 
his death. His farm in Medford was bought of Edward Collins, 
and thus probably a part of the great Cradock estate. He sold his 
farm in Concord, Oct. 22, 1664; and he died there, May 21, 

1667. His wife was Grace , who died May 12, 1664. His 

children were —

rited some land lying east from the Wear Bridge. His house 
was situated about mid- way between the bridge and the Lowell 
• Kailroad, immediately in front of the Woburn Road. It was torn 
down, in 1779, by his great-grandson, Samuel. He died July 
29, 1696, aged 64 ; and his second wife, Hannah, died Mar. 10,

It is my belief that these children all d. young, not being mentioned in his will. There was 
a George Oradock, of Boston, who is said by lluchiuson to have been a grandson of the 
governor. However, as the historian seems to be in error in the same paragraph in confusing 
the brother and nephew of Mathew, I prefer the authority of the English heralds, who men- 
tion no descendants of the governor. Samuel, the brother of Mathew, had Samuel, Mathew, 
and Zachary ; of whom Samuel was rector of North Cadbury, and d. Oct. 7, 1706, aged 86. On 
the death of his father's cousin, he succeeded to the estate at Wiekham Brook, which remained 
in the possession of his descendants. He published a work called " Knowledge and Practice; 
or a Plain Discourse of the Chief Things necessary to be known, believed, and practised iu 
order to Salvation. Useful for private families." I have a copy of the third edition, printed 
in London, 1673. It is a very curious and learned collection of texts and comments. There is 
also a funeral sermon extant, preached on his death by Samuel Bury, printed in 1707. There 
were several other families of this name: one settled at Cradock Hall, in Richmond, co. York; 
another at Husband's Bosworth ; another at Glanmorganshire (descended from Caradoc ap Yuir 
ap Ivor, lord of Dyfed); and a fourth is recorded iu Burke's "Commoners." The name is a 
very ancient one, and occurs in the ballads concerning King Arthur. [See Percy's " Reliques."

ELIOT, MARY, widow of Francis, of Braintree, d. Jan. 17, 1697. 

She was mother-in-law of Deacon John Whitmore ; and her husband was probably a near rela- 
tive of the apostle to the Indians. My reasons for this surmise are : 1. That one of the brothers 
of Kev. John Eliot mentions in his will that he had property in the hands of this Francis, at 
Braintree. 2. Edmund Hobart was father of Joshua and of Thomas Hobart. Caleb, son of 
this Thomas, m. Mary, dau. of Francis Eliot. Ilis cousin Peter in. Susanna, dau. of Jacob 
Eliot, and niece of the apostle Such a coincidence can hardly have resulted without a con- 
nection between these families of Eliots.

18 Ebenezer, „ Mar. 25, 1708; d. Feb. 2, 1727. 

He appears to have m. Eliz. Frost, Sept. 13, 1705; and, in fact, it is possi- 
ble that all these children, after Nathaniel, — that is, from and including No. 
13, — may be the offspring of a different John and Lydia. This, however, is 
but a surmise ; and, from the wills, I judge a very improbable one.

33, had —

He d. Aug. 31, 1750. 

4-11 Stephen Francis, blacksmith, is mentioned in his brother Ebene- 

zer's will (18). Stephen F. is apparently the one who m. Love, 
widow of Josiah Wyman, of Woburn, July 14, 1740. He had 
children — 
11-19 Stephen, b. Mar. 7, 1741 ; d. June 26, 1749.

Miss Austin, of Charlestown, and d. 1746. His ancestors arc 
said to have had large possessions in Haverhill and Methuen • 
and, as lately as 1798, Mr. Swan was urged to prosecute his 
claims by persons of respectable standing, one of whom, a pub- 
lic officer, desired to purchase a part of his claim. From a deli- 
cate sense of justice, Mr. Swan and his oldest son firmly refused 
to entertain the idea. In March, 1746, he m. Joanna Richard- 
son, of Woburn, and had children as below. His house in 
Charlestown was burnt by the British ; and he went, with his 
family, to Concord. He d. Aug., 1808. Children : —

thanks of Gov. Bowdoin. He was afterwards deputy-collector

TUFTS, PETER, was b. in England, in 1617 ; parents and birth- 
place unknown. There are, however, persons bearing the name 
in Lancashire ; and, between Little Baddow and Maiden, co. 
Essex, there is a village called Tuftes. Peter Tufts was one of 
the earliest and largest land-owners in our town of Maiden ; and 
it is perhaps a fair supposition, that he named his home for his 
English birthplace. lie is supposed to have immigrated 1638-40 ; 
and was admitted a freeman, May 3, 1665, being then an inha- 
bitant of Maiden. He bought land in Medford, in 1664, of Mrs. 
No well, which descended to his son, Capt. Peter Tufts. His 
wife was Mary , who d. 1703, aged 75. He d. May 13,

Benjamin Willis m. Ann Gammell, of Medford, and was proba-

Benjamin (13). He was killed at Louisburg, leaving a son, —

Hon. William Willis has kindly furnished me with these facts, and is better

ADDENDA. 



All the dates of births, &c, recorded in the first volume of the town-records, 
being all previous to the year 1718, have been incorporated in the preceding 
Register. The second volume, covering the period between the years 1718 
and 1S09, contains many dates of which the limits of this work forbid the 
insertion. 

For the assistance of any who may have traced their genealogy to a Medford 
stock, a list is here inserted of the names not previously mentioned, which 
are to be found in the second volume of the town-records, and the dates of their 
appearance thereon.

Williston, 1769; Winship, 1772; Witherston, 1798; Wright, 1795. 

As to the strangers who are mentioned on our records, I find that Adrian 
Lubert Andriesse, of Batavia, was born in Boston, Feb. 9, 1799, and baptized 
at Medford, July 7, 1805. Charles Dabney's child, which Mr. Albree had to 
nurse, was baptized July 4, 1742, and named Charles. 

Of those not of American birth or parentage, I find, besides the slaves and 
their children, that Jacob Auld, one of the " Scotch-Irish," had, by wife Ann, 
a daughter, Margaret, born Mar. 19, 1750. 

There seems to have been some Irish families as early as 1745 ; but these 
are named in the foregoing list. 

There remains one class of unwilling settlers in our town, — the Acadians ; 
or French Neutrals, as they are called on our records. Of these exiles from 
Grand Pre, three arc mentioned on the records, as follows : — 

Eunice, wife of John- Degkusiia, was bapt. Feb. 12, 1744. 

Johx Lb Bosquet, and Sarah, his wife, had — 

Joseph, b. Jan. 12, 1781. 

Rebecca, „ Jan. 19, 1783. 

John Tebodo had, by Ann his wife, — 

Ann, b. July 4, 1757. 

Elizabeth, „ Nov. 1, 1759. 

Joseph, „ Feb. 24, 1762. 

The name of Le Bosquet, preserved in recollection by the Le Bosquet 
house, has been corrupted into Burkit. 

Of the others, I know not whether they removed from town, or whether 
any descendants yet remain. 



CORRIGENDA. 



Page 6. There is evidently an error in the record of George Blanchard's death. The date 

probably refers to his father, or other relative. 
„ 10. Thomas Brooks had lot assigned 1634, not 1631. 

,, 10. Hannah, second wife of Caleb Brooks (No. 1-3), was born March 5, 1644. 
,, 22. John Hall (No. 2-10) married Jemima, daughter of Captain Joseph Sill. 
,, 23. Percival Hall was not representative to Provincial Congress, as he died twenty-two 

years previously. 
,, 42. Mr. Savage declines the responsibility of more than the early part of the record of 

the Royalls. 
„ 42. The wife of Isaac Hoyall (No. 2-5) was buried from the house of Dr. Oliver, at 

Dorchester; which strengthens the probability of her first marriage. He had a 

daughter Elizabeth, born 1741 ; died July 9, 1747. 
,, 42. Colonel Royall (No. 5-11) had a daughter, who married George Erving, of Boston. 

He (Colonel R.) died 1781; and his wife died 1770. 
„ 46. Rev. Zechariah Symmes had twelve children ; names as given in their place. 
,, 54. There is no probability, considering the dates, that James (No. 246) was son of 

Peter (No. 1). 
„ 59. Lydia, wife of Daniell Turell (No. 1), died June 23, 1659. 
,, 59. Daniel was captain 1683, not 1046. 

,, 60. Hezekiah Usher (No. 1) married, first, Frances . Hannah (No. 5) was daugh- 
ter by second wife, and was born Dec. 29, 1653. He married his second wife, 

Nov. 2, 1652. 
,, 60. Hezekiah (No. 1-2) married Bridget Hoar, 1686, and had no children. All those 

under that record — viz., Nos. 15, 16, 17 —belong to Hezekiah No. 1. 
John Usher married Elizabeth Slidgett not Sidgett. 
Jonathan Wade (No. 1) had Mary, baptized October, 1663, who married William 

Symonds ; also daughter Sarah. Prudence (No. 5) married, second, Rev. Seaborn 

Cotton. 
Jonathan (No. 1-2) had Deborah, baptized March 24, 1667 ; Prudence, June 6, 1669 ; 

Catharine, Aug. 27, 1671, — died soon; Catharine, June 22, 1673; Susanna, Juno 

10, 1677; Dorothy, July 10, 1081; all before Dudley (No. 2-8). 
I am authorized to say that John Willis was very probably the same as No. 3-11.

The earliest mentioned person by the name of Whitmore I hare yet met 
with is John of Stamford, who was living in Wethersfield in 1639. He was 
killed by the Indians in 1648, leaving a son, John. I have some reason to 
suspect that he was the father of all of the name here, and that the following 
will give about the record of his children's births: — 

Thomas, b. 1615 ; the ancestor of the Wetraores.

phen Francis, divided the Collins Farm between them; Caleb llobart having 
previously sold John W. one-fourth of this estate. In addition to this land, 
he owned the house shown on a preceding page, and also land in Billerica 
and Charlestown. He was in service, under Major Swayne, against the Indians 
at Saco; and his wife petitioned the General Court that her husband might 
be restored to her and her three infant children. The fall after his return, 
he was engaged in purchasing lands and building a house. His funeral 
sermon was by Mr. Turell, from Acts xxi. 1G.

WHITMORE FAMILY. 77 



John d. Mar. 26, 1753. His widow d. Mar. 27, 1783, aged 96. He was at 
first a housewright, but afterwards went into business with his brother. He 
owned much property in Medford ; and his oldest son, John, having removed 
to Bedford, he resided there chiefly in his old age, and was so liberal a bene- 
factor to the church as to be mentioned with gratitude on the records. His 
daughters all left issue; and one of them, Susanna, left descendants, now 
living in Lexington, by the name of Chandler, who still preserve some relics 
of their ancestor. The family of Lane, when it emigrated from England, left 
property there, the rents of which were paid to the heirs, John Whitmore's 
descendants included, until within fifty years, when the heirs, being nume- 
rous, sold the estate, and divided it.

APPENDIX. 



John Whitmore was of Wethersfield, Conn., in lC40,as, in February of that year, 
Richard Westcoat, for misleading him, was fined ten shillings. In 1041, he removed 
to Stamford, with others, who settled under the direction of Rev. Richard Dunton, 
and had been sojourners at Watertown, Mass. A list of his farms in Wethersfield is 
here given: — 

The second month and fifth day, 1641, the lands of Jo. "Whitmore, lying in 
Wethersfield, on Connecticut River. 

One piece whereon his house and barn standeth, containing twelve acres and half, 
more or less: bounds and abut against the Common, or Landing-place, and against 

the house-lot of Robert Batts, west, and the meadow of Francis , east; the sides

APPENDIX. 



One other piece also lying in the West Field, containing fifteen acres and a half, 
more or less: bounds abut against tho highway, south, and Hartford Bounds, north; 
the sides against tho lands of Robt. Abott, east, and John Jesiopt, west. 

In 1043, he was killed by the Indians; and the following account is transcribed 
from Hazard's State Papers, p. 127: — 

[1049.] "The Commissioners for New Haven informed the rest of tho Commission- 
ers, that, in or about October last, John Whitmore, one of the deputies of Stanford, a 
peaceable, inoffensive man, not apt to quarrell, or provoke any of the Indians, 
going forth to seek his cattell, returned not according to expectation, nor could be 
found by the English that sought him; but, quickly after, the son of a Sogamore 
who lives near Stanford came into the towne, and told the English that John Whitmore 
was murdered by one Torquattoes, an Indian ; and, to prove it, that Torquattoes had 
some of his clothes, and particularly his shirt, made of cotton-linnen. Herovpon the 
English and some Indians went into the woods to take the murthcrcd body for buriall; 
but, though they bestowed much time and labore, could not find it. Divers of the 
English at Stanford suspected the Sogamore's son to be either the author or tho 
accessory of this murder, but had not satisfying grounds to seize and charge him. 

" About two or three months after, Uncas coming to Stanford, calling the Indians 
thither, and inquiring after the murdered body, the fore-mentioned Sogamore's son, 
and one Rohoron, another suspected Indian, led some of the English, and some of 
Uncas his men, to the place where the murdered body, or the relicts of it, lay. The 
carcase was brought to Stanford: the Sogamore's son and Rohoron fell on trembling, 
and thereby confirmed the suspicion of the English, and wrought suspicion in some 
of tho Mohegin Indians, so that they said those two Indians were nought, meaning 
they were guilty. 

" John Whitmore's widow, both by messengers and letters, presses for justice ; and 
other Indians grow more insolent, and censure tho English for want of due prosecu- 
tion in such a case." 

A General Courto in Hartford, the 13th of Sept., 1049: — 

" This Courte, taking into serious consideration what may bee done, according to 
God, in way of revenge of the bloude of John Whitmore, late of Stanford, and well 
weighing all circumstances, together with the carriages of the Indians (bordering 
therevppon) in and about the premisses, doe declare themselves that they doc judge it 
lawfull, and according to God, to inako warr vppon them." — Pub. Records of Conn., 
p. 197. 

The following affidavit is on the Stamford Records: — 

" March 7, 1049. — The testimony of John Whitmore his wife, being no ... . 
Goodwife Whitmore affirmeth yt her husband Bold to her son John .... five acres 
land on yo plane . . . ." 

Another, from the same source (both being defective and partly illegible on tho 
records), says, — 

" . . . . Yt Rro. Whitmore told him he had sold his son John five acres, in yo East 
Field, <>n ye playne; and, if it did not como to so much, he would make it up in ye 
other plain, and so make it good: it lay in yt plain; and this land was Ro. Fisher's, 
by gift from yo Cortc." 

This John Whitmore, jun., mentioned in tho preceding, is no doubt tho one who 
had a dau., Sarah, born at Hartford, Dec. 16, I'

And many others. His descendants spell their name Wetmore. 



Francis Whitmore, of Cambridge, owned lands there, near the Plain ; near Charles 
River, by the Boston line; in Charlestown, near Minottamie; near Dunbarke's Mea- 
dow; and also in Medfurd and Lexington. His house stood on the dividing line 
between Cambridge and Lexington, and is mentioned in the act of division. He 
served in the Indian wars, under Major Willard, as the Treasurers' books witness. 
His name, with his wife's, stands on a petition in favor of an old woman charged with 
being a witch; hence he can hardly have been of the extreme Puritan party, although 
a member of the church. He was, however, a selectman, &c, in the town, and his 
name is often to be met with on the deeds, wills, &«., of the early settlers in that 
town. An account of his wife's family is in Jackson's History of Newton, Mass. His 
will is here inserted: — 

" After the payment of my just debts, I do give unto my loving wife the use and 
enfeofment of my whole estate, in housing, lands, and movables (excepting that part 
of my land by me already given unto my son Samuel), during her widowhood, for 
her livelihood, and for the bringing up of my three youngest children, and for the 
expending of what learning she shall be able upon them. But, if she marry to 
another man, my will is that she shall have thirty pounds out of my movable estate, 
to dispose of as she shall see meet. To my two youngest sons, Thomas and Joseph, I do 
give my housing, barns, and my part of the new mill, with all my lands thereunto 
belonging; excepting that part of the land by me set out and delivered to my son 
Samuel, which shall be the full of his portion, he not to share in any after-division of 
any part of my estate to be equally divided between them. They to enter upon the 
possession thereof at the age of twenty and one years of age, if their mother be not 
then living; but if she be then living, and continue my widow, she shall not be dis- 
possessed of any part of my estate during her life. Also my will is, that what of my 
do remain at my wife's decease or marriage, which of them shall first happen, 
with what each of my children have already had being added thereuntg, shall be 
equally divided among them, to each an equal share. My two youngest sons to have 
the housing and lands as aforesaid, and to pay out of them, to the rest of my children, 
that which shall be accounted due to them, as followeth: My eldest son, Francis, his 
part to be due him two full years after the possessing of my youngest sun of the hous- 
ing and lands as aforesaid; the second, two years after; the third, two years after; 
and so, successively, till all be paid. To my grandchildren of Daniel Markham, 
which he had by my daughter Elizabeth, I do give to each of them twenty shillings 
out of my estate. Also I do nominate my loving friends, William Locke, sen., of 
Woburn, and Francis Moore, of Cambridge, to bo my executors of this my last 
will. 

" Sth m. 8th day, 1GS5." 

The estate was valued at £305. 9s. — Middlesex Recs., liber 6, p. 270. 



96 APPENDIX. 

The petition of Rachel Whitmore, before mentioned (see John, No. 3), is as fol- 
lows: — 

To the Hon. Simon Bradstreet, Esq., Governor, and the rest of the Honorable Magis- 
trates now sitting in Boston, the humble petition of Rachell Whitmore, wife of John 
Whitmore. 

Whereas, your petitioner's husband was impressed into the countrye's service 
against the Indian enemy, and is now with Major Swayne at Newechawanick, and 
your petitioner and her two children are very weak and ill, and unable to help our- 
selves, and do any thing for our relief and the rest of the family, as severall of the 
neighbors can and have informed your honors, — 

Doth therefore humbly request the favor from your honors, that her husband, John 
Whitmore, may be dismissed the present service; and that your honors would please 
to pass your order for the same, that he may return to his sick family ; and your peti- 
tioner shall, as in duty bound, ever pray, &c. 

Rachel Whitmore. 
Mass. Records, lib. 35, p. 34. 



Francis Whitmore (No. 1) died Oct. 12, 1G85: his birth is ascertained, by two 
affidavits on file at Cambridge, to have been in 1625. 



Concerning the three families of Whitmore, Wetmore, and Whittemore, all 
researches show the present bearers of the first name to be descended from Francis 
Whitmore, of Cambridge; of the second name, from Thomas Whitmore, of Middle- 
town; of the last name, from Thomas Whittemore, of Maiden. I regard the first 
two as descended from the same stock ; but the third is, and has been, a distinct name 
in England. It would be useless, at present, to speak of any families of the name now 
or formerly in England; but it may be worth while to note that the mode of spelling 
was Whitmore as far back as 1200. 



In conclusion, in submitting this sketch of a family record to my cousins, near and 
remote, I must beg them to prove their forgiveness of all errors herein contained, by 
sending me the materials to correct them, and to complete the account of all the 
descendants of Francis AVhitmoke.
