INTRODUCTION. 



One hundred and seventy-six years ago the Ames 
family settled in that part of Exeter which is now the 
town of Newmarket. 

Rev. J. H. Fitts, pastor of the Congregational 
church in South Newmarket, has kindly furnished 
the following facts concerning the Daniel Ames 
family, which he has gathered in the course of gen- 
eral studies in Newmarket family history. I am 
indebted to him for the facts furnished, and for 
courtesies shown when on a visit there in November, 
1890, for which I return thanks. 

Newmarket was a part of Exeter until 1 7 Decem- 
ber, 1727. The Ames estate was about six miles 
from Exeter village, pleasantly situated on the north 
side of the Piscassic river near the corner of Hall's 
Mill and Lee roads. It is now owned and occupied 
by Smith Sanborn. Near the westerly side of a 
large, well cultivated field, there is a knoll which is 
elevated ten or fifteen feet above the rest of the 
field. On this knoll Daniel Ames built his log 
house. It had two rooms on the floor, and was two 



6 INTRODUCTION. 

stories in height. The upper story projected over 
the lower, so that the house when used as a garrison 
could be defended against the attacks of the Indians. 
Here our ancestor lived with his family, and here he 
died, in January, 1754. 

In this field, .at a bend in the river and near its 
bank, is another knoll, about eighty feet in diameter, 
which is now covered with trees. It was here that 
Daniel Ames and his household were buried. The 
neglected graves are distinctly marked by small, 
rough stones, upon which there are no inscriptions. 

All that can be given which relates to his history 
are such items as may be found in the offices of the 
register of deeds and the register of probate for 
Rockingham county, which are as follows : 

DANIEL AMES, 

husbandman, purchased thirty acres of this home- 
stead of the family of Joseph Hilton, 25 June, 17 14. 
He mortgaged this messuage and the dwelling- 
house upon it 19 August, 1720, to William Hooke, 
of Salisbury; 6 September, 1 73 1, four years after 
Newmarket had been set off from Exeter, Daniel 
Ames, freeholder, of the parish of Newmarket, sold 
to Richard Perryman, of Exeter, thirty acres of com- 
mon lands, apportioned to him by a committee of 
the township of Exeter: 3 May, 1740, he sold 150 
acres of land on Piscassic river to Nathaniel Ames, 



INTRODUCTION. 7 

his son, for "one thousand and two hundred pounds 
in passable Bills of Credit of y e Province." 

On 4 June, 1744, Daniel Ames received a quit- 
claim deed from Edward Hilton, of Hilton's "old 
lot," being- part of the Piscassic mill grant. With 
his sons, Simon and Nathaniel, he conveyed to 
Edward Hilton, 3 June, 1746, a portion of the Pis- 
cassic mill grant. He sold to Edward Hilton, 22 
November, 1747, "certain strips or points of land 
Joyning to y e s d Ameses home place." 

The will of Daniel Ames, "aged and well stricken 
in Years, and in a weak habit of body," dated 24 
December, 1753, was presented for probate 30 Jan- 
uary, 1754. It makes his sons, Nathaniel and Jacob, 
executors, and gives to them the homestead. The 
will also mentions 

Children : 

I. Simon was witness, 3 May, 1 740, to deed of land from Daniel 

Ames to Nathaniel Ames. He was of Canterbury as early 
as 1749. Will dated 14 December, 1786; presented for 
probate 13 May, 1793 ; mentions daughters, Mercy Heath, 
Elizabeth Gordon, and Mary Ladd, and grandson, Simon 
Ames Heath, who is executor.

10 INTRODUCTION. 

IX. Mary, to whom her father's will gave a legacy, and a 
room in the westerly end of his dwelling-house so long as 
she lived single. 

There is a tradition that the names of the six sons 
of Daniel were put in rhyme as follows : 

"Samuel, David, and Daniel, 
Simon, Jacob, Nathaniel." 

The second son of Daniel was Samuel, who was 
born in Exeter, and died in Canterbury. He was 
the great grandfather of the compiler. The facts 
embodied in this compilation have been gathered 
from nearly all of the families mentioned therein 
now living, and are believed to be as correct as can 
be in a book of this kind. To all of the friends who 
have aided me I return my thanks. 

This compilation has occupied much of my time 
for several years. I expect no other reward for my 
labor than a consciousness that I have done some- 
thing that will be appreciated by all those living 
whose names appear in this genealogy. 

Previous to 1752 the legal year began on the 25th 
of March, and the historical year began on the 1st of 
January. In old records these two methods were fre- 
quently combined, thus, — March 10, 1728-9, means 
that the year was 1728 of the legal year and 1729 of 
the historical year, the latter being the method now 
in use. 

The usual abbreviations for the states are used, 



INTRODUCTION. 11 

appearing only once after each family name, and that 
where the place of residence is first given. 

Names of towns, if without special designation, are 
supposed to be in New Hampshire. Other abbre- 
viations are used, — as b. for born, m. for married, 
and d. for died. 



THE 

SAMUEL AMES FAMILY. 



FIRST GENERATION. 

SAMUEL AMES. 

i. Samuel was born 13 February, 1723. He came 
to Canterbury from that part of Exeter called New- 
field (which was incorporated 17 November 1727, 
as the town of Newmarket) , about 1749, and settled 
near the meeting-house at the centre of the town, 
on the farm recently occupied by the late Reuben 
Fellows. In 1791 he moved to that part of Canter- 
bury called the " Borough," having obtained posses- 
sion of a large tract of land there, upon which was an 
unfinished two story house. This house is now 
standing. The farm is owned and occupied by the 
family of his great-grandson, the late Dea. Lorenzo 
Ames. 

He married Hannah Dolloff, who was born 18 
January, 1728. Samuel died in Canterbury 16 Jan- 
uary, 1803. Hannah died in Canterbury 23 Jan-

lot on the farm near the Ames mansion, where prop-

Congregational church in Canterbury. He died

were deacons of the same church. David was elected

the farm on High street known as the Ames place, 
where his son Joseph kept a tavern many years. 
He served in the war of the Revolution, at the bat- 
tle of Stillwater, under Gen. Gates. We find by the
