FOREWORD 



The author has devoted to the preparation of this volume 
the past twenty years of his life and it is, therefore, a source of 
keen satisfaction to him to offer it finally as his contribution 
to the Stowell family. And now, upon the completion of his task, 
he wishes to thank all those members who have so whole-heartedly 
aided him in the compilation of the work. Especially, he wishes 
to offer to his secretary. Miss Nellie M. Chapman, his sincere and 
deep appreciation for her able and earnest collaboration. To a 
considerable extent, it has been due to her efficient and skillful 
assistance that The Stowell Genealogy has been brought to a 
successful termination. 



THE STOWELL HOUSE, QUANTOCK, ENGLAND 

One of the oldest houses in England, situated in Quantock, 
County Somerset, on the Southern coast, sis miles from the 
Bristol Channel. 

The Manor of Cothelstone came into the possession of the 
Stowell family in 1066 and is of great antiquity as it was built 
long before 1066 by a Saxon King and Queen. It then con- 
sisted of an extensive mansion, illustrated above, with many 
buildings innnediately surrounding it including a church, eleven 
fami houses and fifty-four cottages. It was retained by them 
in an unbroken line from 1066 to 1820,

The Stowell Genealogy 



THE ORIGIN OF THE FAMILY 

Although the compiler has been unable to discover the par- 
entage of our common ancestor, the Samuel Stowell who settled 
in Hingham, Mass., it is reasonably certain he belongs to the 
Stowell or Stawell family that settled in County Somerset, 
England, over eight hundred years ago. 

During my several visits to England I have interviewed 
every Stowell living in London or its vicinity and while they 
could throw no light on the main point of my inquiry, viz. 
Samuel's parentage, they all traced their own family back to 
Somerset and were positive there were no Stowells in England 
excepting those who originated in Somerset, hence a brief refer- 
ence to the earlier generations as probable ancestors may be of 
interest. 

The founder of the family was the Norman knight Adam, 
who came over with William the Conqueror in 1066 and his ser- 
vices were rewarded by giving him the manor called '*de 
Coveston or de Cothelstone" and the manor of "de Stawelle" 
in Moorlinch, County Somerset. 

Gerard in 1633 wrote: "The Manor of Cothelstone dates 
back to long before the Conquest of 1066, when a Saxon King 
and Queen are said to have been its founders. They secluded 
themselves within its walls in fulfilment of a vow taken at the 
Holy Sepulchre at Jerusalem. It has more the appearance of 
a cloister than a knightly castle such as the warrior, Sir Adam, 
might have desired." 

"Cothelstone is a very remarkable place on account of its 
great antiquity, being one of the oldest homes in England, sit- 
uated six miles from the Bristol Channel, in Quantock, County 
Somerset. It came into the possession of the Stawell family in 
1066. At that time the manor consisted of a beautiful and ex- 
tensive mansion with many buildings belonging to it and im- 
mediately clustered around it, including the Church, eleven 
farm houses and fifty-four cottages. This manor has been re- 
tained in the Stawell family in an unbroken line, from oldest 
son to oldest son, from 1066 down to the present time." 



8 The Stowell Genealogy 

"On the summit is a round tower, nothing whatever being 
known of its builder or the date of its erection. From it a mag- 
nificent view is obtained, said to be the most extensive in 
England." 

The manor of "de Stawelle" also dates back to old Saxon 
times when it was known as "Estawella" or Eastern Spring. 

Originally these Norman knights were known only by their 
Christian names, but gradually they adopted for purposes of 
identification, as their surname, the name of the manor or estate 
where they lived. Thus Sir Adam became Sir Adam de Coves- 
ton. This was very soon changed to Sir Adam de Cothelstone 
and later on to Sir Adam de Stawelle. 

The titled branch inherited by the eldest son was very in- 
fluential in the 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th centuries and in the 
time of the Civil Wars was the most prominent family in South 
Western England, as they had acquired by marriage or purchase 
some twenty-six additional manoi^s or estates vnth. the church 
livings and advowsons that accompanied them. They built one 
of the largest mansion houses in England. They were royalists 
and staunch supportel^ of the Stuarts. When the Parliamen- 
tary Party and Cromwell came into power their estates were 
confiscated and their mansion house and the church badly dam- 
aged and Sir John Stawell was Imprisoned for several years in 
the Tower of London, living in poverty with his health com- 
pletely broken down. 

Under Charles II a restoration was made of such property 
as remained and his son Ralph as recompense was created on 
the fifteenth of January, 1683, a Baron under the title of "Lord 
Stawell of Somerton," named after one of the other manors. 

Later, when the title of Baron lapsed owing to the failure 
of male issue it was continued by special Act of Parliament 
upon the daughter Mary as Baroness Stawell, 21 May 1760, with 
the right of inheritance by her male descendants, but after a 
few generations the title of Baron again became extinct owing 
to the lack of male issue. 

Some of the younger sons were created Knights in their 
own right through their ability and prominence and thus ac- 
quired the title of Sir and sen'cd as members of Parliament 
and in other high offices. 



COTHELSTONE CHURCH, QUAXTOCK, EXGraT 




The church is quite near the Manor House and was always 
a part of it and the livings and advowsons belonged to the 
Stowell family. 

It is of great antiquity and contains old medallions of 
ancient stained glass and monuments and tombs of the Stowell 
family dating back to 1300.

The Stowell Genealoqt 9 

As the family title carried with it the control of so many 
church livings and advowsons, quite a large number of the de- 
scendants of the younger branches went into the ministry and 
naturally fell into the livings which were within the gift of the 
family. The most prominent was Hugh Stowell of Manchester 
and the Isle of Man, who was the Henry Ward Beecher of 
England and the most eminent and eloquent preacher of his day. 

The church at Cothelstone is quite near the Manor House 
and was always a part of it. In the windows are some excel- 
lent specimens of ancient stained glass. The most interesting 
objects, however, are the tombs and monuments of the Stawell 
family dating back to the year 1300. Members of the Stawell 
family have been worshippers in it continuously from 1066 to 
1820. 

The church at Hingham, Mass., which was organized in 
1635 and attended by Samuel Stowell, the immigrant, has had 
Stowell worshippers continuously from 1649 to the present day. 
While not the oldest church society or organization, the church 
building itself, erected in 1680, is the oldest meeting house in 
America that has been continuously used for public worship, 
hence the church at Cothelstone and the church at Hingham 
have between them had Stowell worshippers from 1066 to the 
present time. 

Samuel was not a common name in the family in the early 
days. In Col. George D. Stawell 's History of the Stawell fam- 
ily, the name of Samuel does not appear in a single instance 
until recorded in the Registers of Bath and Chudleigh in 1562. 
Forty Stowells are mentioned therein; thirty-five of th£se are 
speUed Stowell and five are spelled Stawell. The name of Sam- 
uel appears in the Bath Abbey Register which gives the birth of 
a Samuel Stowell on the 5th of January 1581 and the Chudleigh 
Parish Register gives the death of a Samuel Stowell, 7th of 
December 1628, probably the same Samuel. He may have mar- 
ried and had children though I find no record either of his mar- 
riage or of any children. 

Possibly our immigrant Samuel may have been a son of 
his. We know the date of death of our Samuel to be in 1683, 
but as we do not know his age at time of death, we cannot defin- 
itely fix upon the date of his birth, but indications point to about 



10 • The Stowell Geneaixxit 

1625. As far as dates are concerned this would fit in with his 
being the son of the above Samuel who died in 1628. 

Although there were a few scattered families there prior to 
that date, the real settlement of Hingham, Mass., occurred in 
1635 when a large colony from Hingham, England, came over 
with the Rev. Peter Hobart among them as their pastor and or- 
ganized the town naming it Hingham after their old English 
home. 

This would make Samuel about ten years old at that time. 
He may have been brought over by some relative on his mother's 
side, or by some friend of the family or as an orphan appren- 
ticed to one of the immigrants. This was probably the case for 
his name does not appear on any of the ship's registers or in 
any of the Hingham records until his marriage in 1649 to Mary 
Farrow is recorded in Hobart 's Diary. 

THE NAiME 

The Stawell Barons always spelled their name "Stawell" 
in their personal signature to deeds, letters, documents, etc. 
Owing to their large land holdings they were very frequently 
involved in law suits. In these Court records it is generally 
spelled ''Stawell" though "Stowell" sometimes appears. In 
other records as of births, deaths and marriages, and especially 
in regard to others than the titled family, it is very often spelled 
Stowell. 

In England the name is always spelled either "Stawell'' or 
"Stowell," never in any other way. In earlier times "Stawell" 
predominated. At present as many spell it "Stowell" 
as "Stawell." 

In America it has never been spelled "Stawell." The orig- 
inal immigrant spelled it "Stowell" and that form is generally 
used, although "Stoel" is quite common. 

In all the vital statistics of births, deaths and marriages, 
and in all deeds, wills and court records it is given as "Stowell" 
in all of the first three generations, viz: in those of the ori<:inal 
immigrant Samuel, in thase of his six sons, Samuel-, Jolm=, 
David-, William-, Israel-, and Benjamin- and in those of his 
eleven grandsons, viz. : 



, THE FIRST CHURCH, HINGHAM, MASS. 

, ''THE OLD SHIP" 

The above churcii was built in 1680, and is the oldest churchy J 
building in America which has been continuousry used for church "'' 
purposes. The Hingham Church Society was formed in 1635,. 
and a church was then built which was used for 45 years, but 
proving too small the present church was erected. Since 1635 
there have been but six pastors. The average years of their 
service has been 49 and their average age at death 82. Samuel 
Stowell worshipped in both churches and his descendants still 
worship there.

John^, son of John-. 
Benjamin^, son of Benjamin^. 
IsraeP and Isaac^, sons of IsraeP. 

SamueP, David^, Jonathan", John^, Benjamin^, and Nathan- 
ieP, sons of David-. 
In the case of David^, Jonathan^, and NathanieP, however, 
while it appears as ''Stowell" in all of their earlier records, it 
sometimes appears as ' ' Stowell ' ' and sometimes as ' ' Stoel ' ' after 
they moved to Ashford, Conn. 

Seven of these eleven grandsons, viz. : SamueP, John^ Ben- 
jamin^, IsraeP, Isaac^, SamueP and Benjamin^ and their de- 
scendants remained in Hingham, Newton or Watertown, Mass., 
where their name appears in the records many times, always 
spelled Stowell. Three of these eleven grandsons, viz. : David^, 
Jonathan^ and NathanieP went to Pomfret, Conn., and remained 
there, or in adjoining towns, where their name and that of their 
descendants frequently appears spelled both ways. Their 
brother John^ also bought land in Pomfret at about the same 
time, but he never lived there permanently; however, his name 
appears there once as "Stoel." 

Ten of these eleven grandsons married and had eighty-three 
children whose names are recorded one hundred and eighty-eight 
times as "StoweU'' and eighteen times as "Stoel" as follows: 
SamueP had 5 children recorded 15 times as Stowell and 
times as Stoel. John^ had 8 children recorded 21 
times as Stowell and times as Stoel. IsraeP had 9 
children recorded 19 times as Stowell and times £ls 
Stoel. Isaac^ had 11 children recorded 27 times as 
Stowell and times as Stoel. Benjamin^ had 10 child- 
ren recorded 22 times as Stowell and times as Stoel. 
SamueP had 9 children recorded 18 times as Stowell 
and times as Stoel. David^ had 12 children recorded 
26 times as Stowell and 10 times as Stoel. Jonathan^ 
had 4 children recorded 3 times as Stowell and 4 times 
as Stoel. John^ had 8 children recorded 15 times as 
Stowell and 1 time as Stoel. NathanieP had 7 child- 
ren recorded 22 times as Stowell and 3 times as Stoel. 
Total, 83 children recorded 188 times as Stowell and 
18 times as Stoel. 



12 ' The Stowt:ll Genealogy 

It first appears as "Stoel" in a deed to Jonathan dated at 
Ashford, Conn., 31 April 1728 and again in deeds to him in 
1733 and 1735. It then appeai-s as "Stoel" in a deed to David 
dated Ashford, Conn., 22 Aug. 1740. As both deeds were exe- 
cuted in Ashford, the "Stoel" may have been written into them 
by the seller of the property or by the lawyer who drew them up, 
but most probably it was written "Stoel" by the to^^^l clerk 
when recording them. In any event that method of spelling 
originated in Ashford, Conn., and has been followed until the 
present day by many of the descendants of David and Jonathan. 
The descendants of the others retained the original way of spell- 
ing. 

However, previous to 1728, it was spelled "Stowell" in the 
ease of Jonathan, in all the statistics of his birth, death and 
marriage, and was also spelled "Stowell" in seven deeds record- 
ed in Jonathan's name in Middlesex County, Mass., before he 
moved to Connecticut. 

It was spelled "Stowell" previous to 1740 in the case ot 
David, in all the statistics of his birth, death and marriage and 
was spelled " Stowell " in seven deeds recorded in David's name 
in Middlesex County, Mass., before he moved to Connecticut and 
was also spelled "Stowell" in nine deeds recorded in David's 
name in Pomfret after he moved to Connecticut. 

After 1728 there were eleven deeds recorded in Ashford, 
Conn., in the name of Jonathan Stoel. After 1740 there >Tere 
two deeds recorded in Ashford, Conn., seventeen in Willington, 
Conn., and three in Windham, Conn., in the name of David Stoel. 

There are several instances where members of the same 
family spelled their name differently and in some cases like that 
of David and Jonathan cited above, the same individual spelled 
it sometimes as "Stowell" and sometimes as "Stoel." 

Thus it will be seen that for the first eighty years of the 
family's existence in America, the name was always spelled 
"Stowell" never "Stoel." 

THE SEARCH FOR SAMUEL 

The early settlers of New England scrupulously preserved 
their church and the public records and it is owing to these cus- 
toms that we have such a full record of the first four genera- 
tions, marred only by the destruction of some of them by fire. 



The Stowell Genealogy 13 

During the French and Indian Wars the Colonial troops, 
marching on their way to Canada through the then wilderness 
now known as Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, were not 
slow in recognizing the fertility of the soil and the possibilities 
of acquiring larger farms on easier terms than could be obtain- 
ed in their home towns, which were becoming too crowded for 
farming purposes ; hence there followed a large emigration into 
this new territory which these wars opened up. 

After the Revolution a still larger emigration took place 
into New York and the western territory beyond. This being 
a wilderness, church and town organizations were slow in form- 
ing and the same care was not taken as in the original settle- 
ments, so the vital statistics were deficient and consisted quite 
largely of what were kept in the family Bible. These old Bibles 
were gradually lost and are now very rapidly disappearing. 

Believing it was necessary for some one to rescue from ob- 
livion at once, before it was too late, this still existing but fast 
disappearing material, the compiler commenced about twenty 
years ago to gather data about our Stowell ancestors. He also 
believes he has had exceptional facilities in making his research- 
es, because being a life member of the Minnesota Historical So- 
ciety at St. Paul, where he then lived, he had the "free run" of 
their most excellent library, that is, he had the privilege of go- 
ing back among the shelves and taking down the books himself 
and did not have to fill out a card and wait for an attendant 
to bring the book to the reading room. He also enjoj^ed, for the 
same reason, similar privileges at the well known New England 
Historic Genealogical Society in Boston and being an ex-member 
of Congress had the same courtesy extended to him by Mr.- 
Spofford, the librarian of the Congressional Library at Wash- 
ington, where he spent several months in research work. 

While on a trip up the Nile in 1898-9, I had the good for- 
tune to become acquainted with Sir John Evans, the well known 
Egyptologist, a Director of the British Museum and next to 
Lord Kelvin, the most noted scientist of his day in England. 
He was then on a mission to investigate for them the authen- 
ticity of some Egyptian palimpsests. He was also President of 
several Scientific and Antiquarian Societies, among them The 
Society of Antiquaries, of London, the leading genealogical so- 
ciety of England. 



14 The Stowell Genealogy 

When I went to London, I was introduced by him to the 
Society of Antiquaries at Burlington House where I had the 
' ' free run ' ' of their library ; also to the British Museum and to 
Somerset House and to Sir Henry Maxwell Lyte, in charge of 
the Records at Chancery Lane, and to Lord Sherborne, the 
present representative of the titled Stowells and the custodian 
of all their papers and documents. 

Any one who knows how difficult it is for an outsider, even 
for an Englishman who is not a member, to cross the threshold 
of an English Club or Society, can appreciate what an advan- 
tage this introduction was. I personally examined every book 
in the Society of Antiquaries, searching for the date and place 
of birth and the parentage of our common ancestor Samuel, but 
without success. 

In 1913 I commissioned the well known genealogist J. Gard- 
ner Bartlett to search in England for the ancestors of Samuel 
Stowell, but the "World War so completely paralyzed all such 
efforts that he was compelled to give up and return to America 
in 1915, before he had completed the examination. While he 
covered most of the ground, there is still much to be examined. 

His report herewith shows what records he examined, so 
that anyone who desires in the future to resume the search 
can take it up where he left off and thus avoid duplication. 

' ' My dear Mr. STO^^^ELL : 

The following sources were examined during a search in 
1914 and 1915 for the English ancestry of Samuel Stowell. 

Lists were made of all Stowell wills to the year 1690 in the 
Prerogative Court of Canterbuiy and in all the local Probate 
Courts covering the Counties of Beds, Berks, Bucks, Cambridge, 
Cheshire, Derby, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Gloucester, Hants, Herts, 
Hunts, Kent, Lancaster, Leicester, Lincoln, Norfolk, Northamp- 
ton, Nottingham, Oxford, Rutland, Somerset (Wells and 
Taunton), Stafford, Suffolk (Bury St. Edmunds, Ips^^^ch and 
Norwich), Surrey, Sussex, Warwick, Wiltshire, AVorccster and 
York. 

Abstracts were made of all the Stowell WiHs in the Pre- 
rogative Court of Canterbury and of the Somerset Wills at 



The Stowell Genealogy 15 

Wells and Taunton ; the few Stowell Avills found in all the other 
Courts were read but not abstracted. No Samuel Stowell was 
found in any of these wills. 

Sixteen Stowell suits were found in the Star Chamber 
Courts between 1558 and 1603. These were examined but no 
mention of a Samuel Stowell was found. 

About 100 Stowell suits were found in the Court of Chan- 
cery between 1558 and 1714; these were all examined, but no 
Samuel Stowell was found. 

In the Court of Request from 1603 to 1625 no Stowell 
suit was found. 

The Parish Registers of Meare and Glastonbury were ex- 
amined. No Stowell item was found although there was a John 
Stowell on the subsidy or tax list of 1628 at Meare. 

As the Stowell family was located principally in Somer- 
setshire, I have the theory that Samuel Stowell of Hingham, 
Mass., was brought over from England by some relatives, not 
of his family name, Avho came from Somersetshire and settled in 
Hingham, like the Otis, Gill, Lane, Frye and some other fam- 
ilies, but I was not able to find proof to establish this theory.

1372 children or 5 3-10 
per family. 



16 The Stowell G-enealogy 

Of the six married sons of SamueP, three, viz: Samuel- John^ 
and Benjamin^ had only one married son each. William- had 
one daughter, but no sons. David^ had ten children, with five 
married sons and eighteen married grandsons, and Israel^ had 
five children, with two married sons and eleven married grand- 
sons; so these two were the prolific founders of the family and 
the average was seven and one-half each, though the whole 
family of SamueP only averaged four and one-half. 

The next three generations had an average of seven and one- 
half as an unusually large proportion lived and married. This 
does not mean that a family of eight would quadruple or be four 
times larger than their progenitors. On the average nearly one- 
fourth of the children die in infancy. Some do not marry and 
of those who do some have no children, so the practical result is 
that only about one-half of the children marry and have families ; 
but these three generations with an average of seven and one-half 
children actually about tripled the number of Stowells in 
existence for each generation. Since then there has been a 
falling off. 

Something has been found out about every Stowell mention- 
ed in the first four generations except about Josiah^ and Eliza- 
beth^, the children of David- and Elizabeth*, daughter of SamueP 
David^. As I can find no record of either their death or mar- 
riage, they probably died in infancy. 



THE STOWELL HOUSE, HIXGHAM, MASS. 

One of the oldest houses in America, on Fort Hill Street, 
at the foot of the hill on wliich stood the old fort prior to King 
Philip 's War. 

The streets were then mere grassy lanes without sidewallvs. 
The houses were of logs with thatched roofs and oiled paper 
for windows. Here Samuel Stowell lived. Later, on the same 
spot, over 250 years ago, the above house was built. It is still 
standing and has been occupied by at least five generations of 
Lue descendants of Samuel Stowell.

First Generation 17 



FIRST GENERATION 

1. SAMUEL^ STOWELL was a blacksmith. In those days, 
especially in a small community like Hingham, the village black- 
smith was a very useful member. He not only shod the horses, 
but repaired all the wagons, farming tools and implements and, 
what was of great importance, the fire arms with which those 
pioneers defended their homes and property. His work was 
humble and undoubtedly crude measured by modern standards, 
but it covered a wide scope, was essential and apparently was 
well done for he stood well and was a respected member in that 
rather dignified and self respecting community, for his descend- 
ants all married into the best families of Hingham and Newton. 

Samuel does not appear to have taken any part in the polit- 
ical or official or church life of Hingham for his name does not 
appear as an office holder. Bringing up a large family seem- 
ingly engrossed all his time and thoughts. His mental character- 
istics are shown in that clause of his will wherein he provided for 
his wife and children. 

The will of SamueP Stowell was dated 27 Oct. 1683, probated 
30 Jan. 1683-4. Wife Mary and sons Samuel and David Stowell 
appointed Administratrix and Administrators. "To wife Mary 
for her maintenance and the bringing up of my children, not al- 
ready brought up, during the time of her widowhood, then on her 
marriage or decease, the estate is to be divided among my child- 
ren, both sons and daughters, my eldest son Samuel to have a 
double share. My beloved friends Capt. John Jacob and Thomas 
Lincoln to be overseers of my estate." Inventory £185.1.2 
(Suff. Prob., Vol. 6, p. 447.) 

Residence, Fort Hill Street, Hingham. Had a lot in Hing- 
ham granted to him in 1656 and drew lot No. 4, his share in un- 
divided land in Cohasset in 1670. "At a town meeting 12 Dec. 
1677, the inhabitants who are proprietors of the undivided com- 
mon lands in said Hingham give and grant unto Samuel 
Stowell to hi-3 heirs and assigns forever, the 59th lot in 4th 
Division of land in said Hingham and Weymouth, containing 
ten and one-half acres, etc."

ham, Suffolk County, 26 April 1771. Inventory returned 20 
Dec. 1771, gives personal property £27.13.4 and real estate in 
Abington, We^onouth and Hingliam £862 (Suff. Prob. 14920). 
His sister Rachel having died before him in 1748, unmarried, 
William apparently divided his estate among six of the chil- 
dren of his sister Hannah (Stowell) Briggs and four of the 
children of his brother Samuel, one-tenth tO' each, viz.: to John 
Briggs, Seth Briggs, James Briggs, William Briggs, Rachel 
Hatch, wife of Jonathan Hatch, and Hannah Holmes, wife of 
John Holmes, who were children of Hannah, and to Adam 
Stowell, Joseph Stowell, Samuel Stowell and Rachel Remington, 
wife of Thomas Remington, who were four of the children of 
Samuel; but he does not mention Obadiah, the other son of 
Samuel, or 0"badiah's children. 

In appraising the shares divided to Adam Stowell a^d 
Joseph Stowell, consideration had been had by us of their 
mother's right of improvement in the pieces of land at Hochley 
and New Bridge for life (Suff. Prob. 25 May 1772).

Hingham, Mass. and had six acres of land granted him on South

His first wife, Nazareth, was a sister of the Hingham Minister, 
Peter Hobart. She died 23 Sept. 1658. He married second, 
10 March 1659, Mrs. Mary Jacobs, who died 15 June 1681. He 
died in 1688, age 100 years. Was deputy to the General Court

THE PARENTAGE OF DAVID, JONATHAN AND 
NATHANIEL WHO WENT TO POMPRET, CONN. 

The original immigrant, Samuel, had eleven children, seven 
of whom were sons. One of these died in infancy; the other 
six married. Of the six married sons, four remained in Hing- 
ham, viz. : Samuel, John, William and Benjamin ; and their rec- 
ords fully appear in the Vital Statistics of Hingham, The 
other two, viz. : David and Israel moved to Newton where they 
raised large families, but the destruction by fire in 1770 of the 
church archives of Newton has left us with very imperfect 
data as to the births, marriages and deaths of their children. 

The Hingham group, comprising four out of six married 
sons of Samuel, left the following descendants: 
SamueP who had only 1 married son and 4 married grandsons. 
John^ who had only 1 married son and 2 married grandsons. 
William^ who had only married son and married grandsons. 
Benjamin- who had only 1 married son and 3 married grandsons. 
Making a total of 3 married sons and 9 married grandsons. 

The Newton group comprising two out of the six married 
sons of Samuel, left the following descendants: 
David^ who had 5 married sons and 18 married grandsons 
IsraeP who had 2 married sons and 11 married grandsons 
making a total of 7 married sons and 29 married grandsons. 

It will be seen that one-half of the grandsons of Samuel 
and nearly one-half of the great grandsons were descendants 



Second Generation 25 

of David- and over one quarter were descendants of IsraeP and 
that the Newton group furnished over three quarters of all the 
descendants of SamueP. Moreover, twelve out of the eighteen 
grandsons of David^ were children of David^ Jonathan' and 
NathanieP. Thus one-third of all the descendants of SamueP 
came from these three who went to Connecticut, which is prob- 
ably the origin of the general tradition that "the Stowell family 
is descended from three brothers." In view of these facts the 
loss by fire of the early data of three quarters of the Stowell 
family has not only been a serious handicap in tracing them, 
but also in separating the children of David from those of Israel 
as well as determining which of David's children were by his 
first wife, Mary Champney, and which were by his second wife, 
Mary Stedman. Its importance is so a,pparent that it has been 
considered desirable to give in detail every known fact bearing 
upon the question. 

During the earlier years of the work of compilation the 
prevalent belief was that David^, Jonathan^, and NathanieP were 
the children of IsraeP and the work was prosecuted for some time 
upon that theory. Some still adhere to it, but I have failed to 
find and they have failed to furnish any positive proof sustain- 
ing it ; on the contrary, the kno-^ii facts assign them to David'. 

They have been credited to David- largely by a process of 
elimination. They could not have been the children of SamueP, 
John^, "William^ or Benjamin^ (the Hingham group) because 
the Vital Statistics of Hingham contain very complete data re- 
specting all the members of that group, which data such as dates 
of birth and marriage exclude them from being their possible 
parents. It will also be noticed that the Hingham records 
make no mention whatever of either David, Jonathan or Nathan- 
iel, an omission not likely to occur if they had belonged to the 
Hingham group, for they were too prominent and too numerous 
to have been overlooked by that painstaking community. They 
must therefore have been the children of either David or Israel, 
although there is no affirmative proof in any town record to 
show which. If it can be shown by the Court records that they 
were not the children of Israel, then, perforce, they must have 
been the children of David. 

The Administration of the Estate of Israel, and the Court 
records relative thereto clearly show they were not the children 



26 The Stowell G-enealogy 

of Israel. Marriage and birth dates negatively show the same 
thing ; hence they must have been the children of David, the only 
possible parent left. 

It will be borne in mind that no known fact conflicts with 
this theory, while under it every fact is possible; furthermore, 
from wills, baptisms and other sources all the other children of 
both David and Israel can be properly placed and accounted for.

Stowell and Elizabeth Stowell, daughters of full age and

said deceased, appoints Joseph Ward, William Marean 
and John Stone, all of Newton, to appraise the estate." 

14 Nov. 1726. The guardianship of Isaac Stowell, a minor in 
his 19th year, and of Temperance Stowell in her 15th year, 
two children of Israel Stowell, late of Newton, deceased,

Second Generation 27 

The record of the Court that IsraeP is the eldest son is the 
crux of the whole question. The Court proceedings covering a 
period of over ten years make no mention of David, Jonathan or 
Nathaniel, an omission hardly possible had they been Israel's 
children. The following facts about Israel's children are, how- 
ever, established. 

1. Abigail, the oldest child, was born in Hingham per Hing- 
ham records 13 Sept. 1699. We know Israel moved to 
Newton in 1700. 

2. Israel designated by the Court as the oldest son was bom 

about 1703 after the family moved to Newton. 

3. Elizabeth designated by the Court as of full age in 1726 was 
bom about 1705. . 

4. Isaac, guardianship records state he was in his 19th year 
in 1726, hence bora about 1708. 

5. Temperance, guardianship records state she was in her 15th 
year in 1726, hence born about 1712. 

As IsraeP, born about 1703, was the eldest son as shown by 
the Court Records, then David^, Jonathan^ and NathanieP — 
if they were his brothers — must have been born after 1703 and 
must also have been bom in the years intermediate between the 
births of Israel, Elizabeth, Isaac and Temperance; hence David 
could not have been bom earlier than 1704 and Jonathan not 
earlier than 1706. 

We know that David married Patience Herrington, 2 May 
1716 ; that he bought land in Newton, 1 May 1717, and executed 
a mortgage 4 Jan. 1718 ; hence if David^ was the son of IsraeP 
as claimed, he was only twelve years old when he married 
Patience in 1716 ; only thirteen years old when he bought that 
land in 1717; only fourteen years old when he executed that 
mortgage in 1718 and only fifteen years old when Elizabeth was 
born in 1719. 

We know that Jonathan^ married Margaret Hammond, 
8 Oct. 1719 ; bought land in 1718 and sold land in 1721 ; there- 
fore, if he were a son of IsraeP as claimed, he was only thirteen 
years old when he married; only twelve years old when he 
bought that land and only fifteen when he executed that deed. 
The improbability of these youthful marriages and the impos- 
sibility of such land transactions, coupled with the Court records. 



28 The Stowell Genealogy 

clearly eliminate them as the children of Israel-; hence Da\id2 
is the only possible parent remaining. 

David^ left no will, nor are there any Court records to sho-n 
whether he was or was not the father of David^, Jonathan^ and 
NathanieP ; but a strong presumption that he M'as the father of 
David^ is shown in Supreme Court case No. 16369 where an 
Attachment was issued against David Stowell, Senior, and David 
Stowell, Junior, 15 D^c. 1722, on account of a bond they had 
jointly given R. Dewing. This bond contains the original sig- 
nature of David Stowell, Senior and David Stowell, Junior, 
and points to a relationship between them ; besides at this time, 
there was no other David StoAvell in existence, nor was one 
possible. 

The strongest evidence that they were the sons of David^ 
lies in the fact that the 2d Church of Watertown has a record 
of the baptism on 20 Nov. 1709, of Da^^d, Mary, Jonathan, John. 
Nathaniel, Josiah and Benjamin, all children of ''Goodman 
Stowell" and that "Goodman Stowell" and his wife owned the 
Covenant and that the five oldest children consented to the 
Covenant on that day. All these were his children by the 2d 
wife Mary Stedman and were all baptised on the same day. 

As we know from other data that Maiy, John and Benja- 
min were undoubtedly children of David^, it follows that their 
brothers David, Jonathan and Nathaniel were also his children. 
Equally strong is the fact that Robert Murdock and David 
Stowell married sisters and that Robert Murdock was appointed 
guardian of Israel's children, Isaac and Temperance. If David, 
Jonathan and Nathaniel had also been children of Israel, Robert 
Murdock would have been appointed their guardian. They 
were omitted because Robert Murdock knew them to be the 
children of his brother-in-law, David StoAvcll. 

On the other hand presumptive evidence against David be- 
ing their father is found in the case of Benjamin^ a son of 
David-, who died unmarried and whose estate was administered 
by his brother John^. 

Midd. Prob. No. 15585. 22 Dec. 1729. Administration on the 
estate of Benjamin Stowell, unmarried, late of Newton, 
deceased, husbandman, granted to John Stowell of Water- 
town, husbandman, with Samuel Stowell of Watertown, 



Second Generation 29 

clothier, as surety; worded "Whereas your late brother 
Benjamin Stowell, late of Newton, deceased, etc." 
Over a year afterwards the Court instructed John to "notify 
the heirs to appear" showing there had been some delay or 
difficulty in the matter. 

11 Feb. 1731. John Stowell was instructed by the Court to 
notify the heirs to appear and he endorsed on the back of 
the order that he had "notified the follomng heirs to ap- 
pear, viz. Samuel Stowell, Ruth Osborn and Mary King." 
This includes the names of all the then living children of 
David except the three we are considering. It would seem as 
though the absence of their names in the Court proceedings 
would eliminate them as children of David, just as we elimin- 
ated them in the case of Israel, but there is this difference. 
Israel's estate was fully considered and finally settled by the 
Court. Benjamin's estate was never wound up or settled in 
Court nor considered in the Court beyond the above quotations, 
but was apparently settled by the heirs by an agreement among 
themselves outside of the Court. 

It will be noticed John reports to the Court that he has 
"Notified the following heirs" implying he has not notified all 
of them, possibly because at that time David, Jonathan and 
Nathaniel were living in Pomfret, Conn., and consequently 
were beyond the jurisdiction of the Court, but more probably 
because John the Administrator also bought land in Pomfret 
about this time and lived there for a while and that as Benja- 
min's property was personal they made amicable division among 
themselves and never clewed up the case in Court. 

As there are no records of the birth of David's children 
by either Mary Champney or Mary Stedman, the dates can be 
given only approximately ; the parentage, however, is establish- 
ed by the %vill of Samuel Champney. 

Midd. Prob. No. 4242. Will dated 21 Sept. 1692. Probated 
6 Jan. 1695-6. Mentions his wife Sarah, sons Samuel and 
Joseph, daughter Sarah Clark and grandchildren, Sarah and 
Mercy Clark. He also mentions David Stowell and his grand 
children, Samuel Stowell and Ruth Stowell, children of his 
daughter Mary (Champney) Stowell, deceased; Samuel 
Stowell to receive his legacy when he is twenty-one and Ruth 
Stowell when she is seventeen. In case both his sons Sam- 



30 The Stowell Genealogy 

uel and Joseph die without issue, then property goes to 
daughters. In a Codicil made 11 May 1694, he cancels his 
bequest to his wife Sarah, deceased, and to his son-in-law 
David Stowell, but does not cancel his bequest to David's 
children, Samuel and Ruth. 

This cancellation was probably because David had married 
again. As Samuel Champney did not make his will or the cod- 
icil until after the death of his daughter Mary and until after 
David Stowell had married Mary Stedman, it is evident Sam- 
uel and Ruth were the only children of David by Mary Champ- 
ney and by inference the other children were by Mary Stedman. 
The latter, in the absence of any other data, have been arranged 
in the order named in their baptism, which is also the order of 
their marriage. 

1. David^ married Patience Herrington 2 May 1716 and was 

probably bom about 1693. 

2. Mary^ married John King 2 April 1718 and was probably 

born about 1695. 

3. Jonathan^ married Margaret Hanmiond 8 Oct. 1719 and 

was probably bom about 1697. 

4. John^ married Sarah Ford 1 Nov. 1722 and was probably 

bom about 1699. 

5. Nathaniel^ married Margaret Trowbridge 22 Oct. 1731 and 

was probably bom about 1703. 

6. Josiah^ was probably bom about 1705. 

7. Benjamin^ was probably bom about 1708. 

8. Elizabeth^ was baptised at Watertown in 1711. 

Suff. Prob., 27 Jan. 1678. Administration was granted on es-

Midd. Deeds, Vol. 12, p. 255. David Stowell and Robert Mur- 
dock, both of Cambridge, husbandmen, sell on 29 June 
1698 to Thomas Belknap of Cambridge, glover, for £17.0.0, 
land in Wobum, Mass., containing Mansion House, called 
** Forty pound Meadow" theirs by inheritance. 
(Signed) David Stowell, 

Mary Stowell, his wife. 
Robert Murdock, 
Hannah Murdock, his wife. 
Mary Stedman, born before 1678, the date of her father's 
death, was probably a minor in 1693-4 at the time of the first 
sale cited above for her name does not appear on that deed, but 
she became of age before the second sale in 1698 when her name 
appears. Hannah Stedman married Robert Murdock, per Rox- 
bury records, 28 April 1692. Mary Stedman married David 
Stowell, per Cambridge records, either on the 7 April 1692 or 
7 April 1695. There is some doubt about the date of Mary's 
marriage. The original entry in the Midd. Prob. Registry ap- 
pears to have been changed from 7 April 1693 to 7 April 1692, 
apparently a contemporary correction. The figures do not sug- 
gest 7 April 1695, a date often quoted, though the dates of the 
two deeds quoted above would indicate it was in 1695 rather 
than in 1692. On the other hand, preceding this entry on the 
original paper are two other marriages of Dec. 1692 and immed- 
iately following it is another of Dec. 1692. As there are only 
four marriages in the group, the correct date is apparently 7 
April 1692. This date is confirmed also by Midd. Deeds Vol. 18, 
p. 220, David Stowell with consent of wife Mary, sells to John 
EUis, land in Cambridge, 7 Jan. 1694, showing he was 
married to Maiy Stedman before 7 April 1695, unless the Mary 
who signed was Mary Champney. Now the codicil to the will 
of Samuel Champney, dated 11 May 1694, states that his 
daughter M]ary was then dead ; hence if it was his daughter Mary 
who signed that deed on the 7th Jan. 1694, then she must have 
died and David must have married Mary Stedman in the four 
month interval between the 7th Jan. 1694 and 11 May 1694. 
Midd. Deeds, Vol. 14, p. 429. Nathaniel Hobart of Hingham- 
sells to David Stowell of Watertown, weaver, land in

town in 1708. 



32 The Stowell Genealogy 

David was undoubtedly a man of great strength of character 
and of good social standing for his children all married well 
and became prominent citizens in their respective communities. 
This was especially so of Maiy who married John King and was 
the mother of the numerous Kings who occupied such prominent 
positions in the earlier days of our country. 

Although only sixty-four when he died he had long been 
known in New ton as ' ' Old Stowell. '' He was in Woburn in 1686 
and in Watertown in 1708, but was identified with Newton. He 
was a weaver by occupation. The only office he held was that 
of Surveyor of Highways, 5 March 1715.

JosiAH, b. Watertown, Mass., bp. 20 Nov. 1709. He probably 
died young as he is the only one not mentioned in his brother 
Benjamin's estate. 

Benjamin, b. "Watertown, Mass., bp. 20 Nov. 1709, d. Newton, 
Mass., 29 Nov. 1729, unmarried. His estate, probated 22 Dec. 
1729, is given in statement above. 

Elizabeth, b. Watertown, Mass., bp. 15 July 1711. Although 
there is no authority for it, the Elizabeth given by Bond as bp. 
15 July 1711 is placed here because it is the only place where 
she can be put. She is generally credited with being the 
daughter of Da^dd^, but in order to do that they have to as- 
sume he had a wife before Patience and they give her the name 
of Elizabeth. Davids was hardly old enough in 1711 to have 
a daughter, being only 18. There is no record of any marriage 
of this Elizabeth; neither is there any record of the birth, death 
or marriage of this daughter Elizabeth; nothing but the bap- 
tism. She may have been the daughter of David^, for it may 
be noted in the deed given above that David^ bought land in 
Watertown, 6 Feb. 1707-8 and is described in the deed as ''of 
Watertown," and all his other children were baptised there 20 
Nov. 1709, so he may have been living there in 1711. She prob- 
ably died young for in the settlement of the estate of Benjamin, 
who would have been her brother, no mention is made of a sister 
Elizabeth, although it mentions all his known brothers and sis- 
ters except Josiah, who also probably died young.

David is described as David Stowell of Newton, Mass. in 
seven Midd. Deeds 1717 to 1724, as David Stowell of Pomfret, 
Conn, in nine Pomfret Deeds 1732 to 1745, as David Stoel of 
Pomfret in two Ashford deeds 1740 to 1749, as David Stoel of 
Windham, Conn, in three Windham deeds 1745 to 1751, as David 
Stoel of Windham in two Pomfret deeds in 1751, as David Stoel 
of Willington, Conn, in fourteen Willington deeds 1752 to 1763. 
The name is spelled Stowell in three Newton and Andover mar- 
riage records. 

David Stowell and wife Mary joined Hampton Church, 
5 Sept. 1742. 

David Stowell sells dwelling in Newton, Mass., 26 Oct. 
1724. (Midd. Deeds.) As his Avife Patience died, 1 Oct. 1724, 
five days after giving birth to Ebenezer, this sale may have been 
of his homestead preparatory- to moving to Pomfret, where his 
name appears in 1725. 

Administration granted John Herrington, eldest son, 
10 Aug. 1741, on estate of John Herrington of Waltham. 
(Midd, Prob.) In the division 13 Nov. 1741, it states "we can 
not find that the children of Patience Herrington, deceased, the 
late wife of David Stowell, have received anything saving nine 
pounds paid their motlier in her life time." 

David Stoel was undoubtedly a man tf great encrgj^ and 
activity as is evidenced by his numerous purchases of land, 
frequent removals to new localities, etc.

12. MARY^ STOWELL {David'' Samuel^) was baptised at 
Watertown, Mass., 20 Nov. 1709, died 7 March 1770, married 
at Boston, Mass., (Int. 2 April 1718) John King of Boston, his 
second marriage. 

John King, born in Kent, England, came to Boston in the 
latter part of the 17th century. He had five children by his 
first wife, viz. : John, Elizabeth, William, Richard and Lydia. 
Of these Richard died when three years old. His eldest child 
by his second wife, Mary Stowell, was also named Richard. 
These two Richards have led to some confusion as to which was 
the maternal ancestor of the many prominent descendants of 
Richard King of Scarboro, but it was unquestionably Mary 
Stowell. 

There has also been some doubt as to whether John King 
married the Mary Stowell who was the daughter of David of 

(4) 



50 The Stowt<:ll Genealogy 

Newton, or Mary the daughter of William of Hingham. This 
is settled, however, by the Boston Marriage Kecords and by 
the Middlesex Probate. The Boston Records give "John King. 
Int. marriage, 2 April 1718 to Mary Stowell of Newton." 

Administration was granted on estate of Benjamin Stowell, 
late of Newton, deceased, son of David, unmarried, to his 
brother John Stowell. 11 Feb. 1731, John Stowell signs to the 
Court that he "has notified the following heirs to appear, viz.: 
Samuel Stowell, Euth Osborn and Mary King." (Midd. Prob. 
No. 15585.) 

We know John, Benjamin, Samuel and Ruth were children 
of David ; hence, Mary King was the daughter of David Stowell 
of Newton. Mary Stowell of Hingham was the only child of 
William Stowell and married Nathaniel Pitty of Weymouth, 
as appears in the Hmgham and Weymouth Records. 

The parentage is further confirmed by the History of Paris, 
Me. "Samuel Stowell, John Stowell and Richard King were 
among the original grantees in 1736 of Township No. 4, now 
Paris, ]Me. ' ' This Samuel and John Stowell are the same as those 
mentioned in above probate and were children of David of 
Newton and they joined with them their nephew Richard King, 
the son of their sister Mary (Stowell) King, in the grant. 

The children of John and Mary (Stowell) King Avere 
pioneer settlers in that part of Massachusetts, then known as the 
Province, now as the state of Maine. They were prominent in 
shaping its destinies, were men of great energj^ and high 
character and covered a wide field of activity in both business 
and political affairs. Their remarkable versatility and command- 
ing influence in shaping public opinion, both before and during 
the Revolution, and the prominence of their descendants in 
Legislative, Executive and Diplomatic positions in State and 
Nation has been universally recognized. 

Mary King was admitted to New North Church, Boston, 20 
June 1725.

Since those Eevolutionary days many descendants also 
have occupied prominent places in Legislative, Military and 
Educational positions, notably Gen. Horatio King, who was 
Postmaster General. 

The writer remembers that some fifty years ago, being a 
young man, he used to feel quite mystified and flattered at the 
marked cordiality shown him by Gen. King during their con- 
versations. It was explained later when the subject turned to 
family history and Gen. King remarked, "You know the first 
King, the immigrant John, born in England, married Mary 
Stowell and our family have always regarded her as the mother 
of all the Kings in America and have held her in high esteem 
on account of her strong character and brilliant intellect and 
attribute to her the talents possessed by so many of her descend- 
ants. That is the reason I take such a warm interest in the 
Stowell family." 

13. JONATHAN^ STOWELL {BavidJ' Samuel^) was bom 
at Newton, Mass., about 1697, bp. at Watertown, Mass., 20 Nov.

married first at Newton, Mass., 8 Oct. 1719, Margaret Hammond, 
dau. of Isaac and Ann (Kenrick) Hammond, b. Newton, Mass.,

at Roxbury, Mass., 6 March 1722-3, JVIargaret He\\t:tt, dau. of 
Hercules and Jane Hewett, b. Boston, Mass., 23 June 1694. 
He m. 3d, Amy or Ama (perhaps Amy Russ, dau. of Abraham 
and Hannah Russ) b. 1707, d. Abington, Conn., 3 Nov. 1793, 
age 86. She m. 2d, Gershom Richardson. 

Jonathan resided in NeAvton, ]\Iass., until 1725, then Pom- 
fret, Conn., until 1733, then Ashford, Conn. Was a clothier in 
Newton and a farmer in Conn. 

Will of Jonathan Stowell, dated 31 Jan. 1776, gives to his 
wife Amy one-third; to his daughters, Margaret Scarborough 
and Meriam Smith one-third ; to his grandchildren, the children 
of son Jonathan, deceased, Amasa, Areulus, Elledurin, Mary, 
John, Nathan and Jonathan one-third. Executor, Nathaniel 
Loomis of Ashford. Probated 17 Aug. 1776. On death of wife 
her one-third to be divided equallj^, one-half of it to his 
daughters and one-half to his grandchildren. Inventory 
£357.12.2 returned 4 Dec. 1776. (Pomfret Probate.) 

He is described as Jonathan Stowell of Newton, Mass., in 
seven Middlesex Deeds 1718 to 1722. As Jonathan Stoel of 
Pomfret, Conn., in one deed, 30 April 1728, when he first buys 
land in Ashford. As Jonathan Stoel of Ashford, Conn., in ten 
deeds 1733 to 1772. 

5 March 1718, Obadiah Coolidge, John Sawin and Daniel 
Bond sell for £100 land in Newton to Jonathan Stowell of

1724, 23 April 1731 and 29 May 1734. Bought a seat in tlie 
Watertown Church in 1732. He was evidently a land speculator 
as nearly 40 deeds are recorded of his purchases and sales in 
Newton, Watertown and "Worcester, mostly after 1731. 
In 7 Middlesex Deeds 1718-1725 John is described as of Newton. 
In 14 Middlesex Deeds 1725-1741 John is described as of 

Watertown. 
In 7 Worcester Deeds 1742 — John is described as of Watertown.

Worcester.

always been in possession of the family and is now occupied by 
his descendants.

Benjamin Stowell of Worcester, for John Stowell as Admin- 
istrator on estate of his late father, John Stowell, late of 
Worcester, deceased. (Wor. Prob. No. 57155.) 

The town of Pomfret was on a purchased tract. A list of 
the proprietors in 1731 mentions David, Jonathan and Nathaniel 
Stowell as living west of this purchase. Then it says "The 
Thomas Grow settlement was near the Windham line, now in- 
cluded in the town of Hampton. A large tract of land west 
of the purchase was owned and occupied by John Stowell." 
(Hist, of Windham, p. 529.) His name does not appear after- 
wards in the records. He was a brother of David, Jonathan 
and Nathaniel and evidently bought land near them when they 
did and lived there for a short time ; but soon returned to Water- 
town for all his children, except John, are recorded as bom in 
Watertown. John may have been born in Connecticut.

As the three brothers, Da\ad, Jonathan and Nathaniel, 
the sons of David^, went to Connecticut and as their descendants 
comprise one-half of all the Stowells in America, it became a 
tradition that the Stowell family were descended from three 
brothers. 

So the three brothers, Israel, Joseph and Enoch Stowell, 
sons of IsraeP, went in 1764 to Winchester, N. H. and became 
the progenitors of about one quarter of all the Stowells, thus 
strengthening the "three brothers" tradition. 

They evidently cut loose from their old Newton home for 
on the 27 May 1776, they sold, their wives releasing dowers, to 
their brother Abijah Stowell "all their rights in the estate of 
their father, Israel Stowell, late of Newton." 

They were active in organizing towns and in forming the 
new state and were ardent patriots in the Revolution. Later 
their numerous descendants went to New York and tbe West 
and were active there in building up new communities.

Dana. Their fifth child was Abigail, who married Isaac Stowell. 
There is no other Hyde family in which she can be placed.

guardian was necessary for her and she married a few months 
later. She named one son Jacob — not a StoweU name — but the 
name of her grandfather Jacob Dana and also of her uncle. 
She named another son Thaddeus, a Hyde name, as did her 
brother Jonathan who also named a daughter Abigail.

vi. Warren. The Bridgewater Mss. p. 90, N. E. H. G. Soc, by 
Mitchell, gives Warren as a son of Ebenezer. Warren was a 
private in Capt. Abner Crane's Co., 3 Feb. 1779 to 4 May 1779, 
on guard at Boston. Was private in Capt. Jacob Haskins' Co., 
Col. John Jacob's Regt., 28 Aug. 1779 to 31 Jan. 17S0. Was 
a private in Altrara Washburn's Co., Col. Theophilus Cotton's 
Eegt., 10 March 1781 to 1 AprU 1781, at Rhode Island, 

The collateral facts clearly indicate that this Warren was 
not the son of Ebenezer, as claimed above. Possibly he may 
have been the son of Samuel4-3-2-i. First, Warren is not men- 
tioned in the will of his assumed grandfather David in 1763, 
while Jonathan, Josiah, Eunice and Patience are mentioned. 
As Ebenezer died in 1753, before Patience was born, Warren 
could not have been his son unless he was a twia with Patience- 
in wliich case he would have been baptised at the same time. 

Abington is a post-oflace withxa and a part of the town of 
Pomfret. Hampton Church seems to have been a neighbor- 
hood church on the borders of Windham, Abington and Canada, 
situated in Windham village. The town clerk of Abington gives 
the birth of Eunice, Jonathan and Anna as being in Abington 
and as being the children of Anna. The church records of 
Hampton church give the birth of Josiah and Patience as being 
in Hampton and as being the cliildren of Hannah. The church 
records of Hampton give the baptisms of Eunice, Jonathan, 
Josiah and Patience as of Windham, but no mention of War- 
ren is made in any of these records. 

9 Sept. 1753, Anna Stowell, widow of Ebenezer, was ap- 
pointed guardian of Jonathan, age 7, Eunice, age 8, Josiah, age 
5 and Patience age one year and two months, but there is no 
mention of Warren. This is singular, as being the yoiing- 
est, he would need guardianship most. 

In Willing-ton deed of 19 Jan. 17C9 Eunice Stoel; of 13 Dec. 
1769 Jonathan Stoel; of 37 April 1771 Josiah Stoel and 
of 24 Dec. 1774 Patience Stoel, all of Windham, each sell 
their one-fourth interest in 90 acres of land left them by 
their father Ebenezer to Seth Crocker. No deed from Warren 
is found. Note they each sell one-fourth interest. 

28. DAVID* STOWELL OR STOEL (David'-' Samuel') 
was born in Pomfret, Conn., 7 July 1736, died at Rockingham, 
Vt., 7 Dec. 1786, age 50, married at Willington, Conn., 13 Nov. 
1756, Sarah Royse, dau. of James and Mehitable (Arnold) 
Royse.

Fourth Generation 87 

John lived at Worcester until about 1749, then Nichewaug 
1749-1759, then Guilford, Vt. 1759, then Petersham, Mass., 
1760 until death. In the intervening five years between the 
birth of Sarah, recorded in Newton in 1723 and of James, 
recorded in Watertown in 1728, John^ moved from Newton to 
Watertown and during this period, probably in 1726, the eldest 
son John* was born, though his birth is not recorded in either 
place. 

That he was the son of John^ is proven by Worcester Pro- 
bate 57155, 1 Dec. 1762 where administration on estate of John 
Stowell, late of Worcester, deceased, was granted to John 
Stowell Jr. of Petersham. Sureties on bond of John Stowell 
Jr. were Benjamin Stowell of Worcester, a son, and David 
Curtis of Petersham, a son-in-law of John^, 

John* was another one of those very energetic men who 
figured largely in business affairs, moved often and pioneered 
into new and unsettled regions where no official records of birth 
were kept and paid no attention to keeping them himself so 
that we have scant data of his numerous family. 

Of 19 Worcester Deeds one in 1748 describes him as John 
Stowell, Jr. of Worcester. Six deeds from 1750 to 1759 describe 
him as John Stowell Jr. of Nichewaug. Twelve deeds from 1762 
to 1789 describe liim as John Stowell of Petersham. 

John Stowell signed a petition to the Mass. Legislature, 
15 March 1770 for a new grant for the township of Alstead, 
N. H. (Vol. 24, Town Papers of New Hampshire). 

5 July 1791, Abel Stowell et als of Petersham, with Ben- 
jamin Stowell of Worcester on bond, granted administration 
on estate of John Stowell of Petersham, deceased, by Abel 
Stowell and John Dimmick. (Wor. Prob. 57156.) 

John Stowell and wife Sarah admitted to Petersham 
Church, 15 Aug. 1773.

Mass., 6 Aug. 1803, age 73, married at Framingliam, Mass., 23 
Oct, 1755, Elizabeth Parker, dau. of Moses and Elizabeth 
(Wait) Parker, born Framingham, Mass., 21 Feb. 1733, died 
at Worcester, Mass., 26 March 1821, age 88. 

Benjamin lived on Granite St., Worcester, Mass. He was 
one of the proprietors of Rockingham, Vt. under the grant of 
1752. Had a house and lot and 20 acres of land granted him 
and was living there in 1754. On 11 Aug. 1755, he sold land 
in Rockingham to Michael Lovell and apparently left there at 
that time for he married Elizabeth Parker, 23 Oct. 1755, and 
settled in Worcester where all his children were born. 

Benjamin Stoell appears on Muster Roll sworn to at Wor- 
cester, 20 Dec, 1748, under command of Maj, Daniel He^•wood. 
Marched on an alarm to the defence of the Western Frontiers 
bj^ order of Col. J. Chandler.

Chandler's R^gt. which marched to the relief of Fort WiUiam

Lieut, in Capt. James Johnson's Co., Col. Oliver Partridge's 
Regt. in 1758 and in the same Company in 1759 under General 
Amherst, 

He inherited land from his father John in Township No. 4, 
(Paris) Maine, and was given land for his services in the Indian 
Wars, At a meeting of the proprietors in Watertown, 5 Jan, 
1774, he was made one of a committee to build a road in Paris, 
Me, and on the 22 June 1774, reported to the proprietoi-s that the 
road had been built. The Revolution evidently interfered with 
any further settlement in Maine, for, during that period, the 
family again appear in Vermont at Guilford; but after the 
War was over the three eldest sons settled on this land in 
Paris and became the progenitors of the very numerous and 
highly eminent members of this branch of the Stowell family 
which was well known in those days throughout Maine.

was born in Watertown, ]\Iass., 25 Dec. 1732, d. Afton or Bain- 
bridge, N. Y., married Worcester, Mass., 24 Nov. 1758, Hepzibah 
Persis Rice, dau. of Adonijah and Persis (Gates) Rice, b. Wor- 
cester, Mass., 3 April 1740. . 



94 The Stow^ll Genealogy 

Hezekiah lived at Lancaster, AVorcester and Petei'sham, 
Mass., Guilford, Vt., and Bainbridge, N. Y. Was an Innkeeper 
at Guilford. Farmer at Bainbridge, N. Y. 

Hezekiah was evidently a man of great energy, unimpeach- 
able integrity and deep religious convictions and an aggressive 
leader among men in times of danger. His varied activities pre- 
sent as stirring and picturesque a career as can be found in that 
famous historical contest between New York and New Hamp- 
shire for the possession of Vermont, in which the "Green 
Mountain Boys" and the ''York Party" were the participants 
and which resulted in Vermont acting as a sovereign unit by 
itself during the Revolution, in an alliance with the other 
Colonies against England, but independent both of the other 
Colonies and of the Continental Congress. 

Bom in Waterto-\\Ti, Mass., we find him at the age of twenty- 
two enlisted from Lancaster, Mass. in the expedition under 
John Winslow which went in 1755 to expel the Arcadians from 
Arcadia. He married in Worcester in 1758 and lived there 
until about 1762 when he moved to Petersham ; there he remain- 
ed until about 1766 when he went to Guilford, Vt. where he 
kept a tavern which became famous as the headquartei-s of the 
' ' York Party ' ' of which he was one of the leading spirits. That 
the "York Party" reposed unlimited confidence in his ability 
and integrity is shown by the fact that their meetings were 
held in his house and all their arms and military supplies were 
placed in his custody. 

Guilford was originally formed under a charter granted 
by New York. This was afterwards revoked by the King and 
Council, but later was reestablished by them. New Hampshire 
granted a Charter to the same land, 2 April 1754, but owing to 
the Indian Wars, nothing was done. On the 20 ^larch 1764, 
a new Charter was granted by the King Avith full powers of self 
control subject only to the control of the Parliament of England. 
Thus Guilfoi-d became and was the only independent town in 
Vermont and was, in fact, a little republic of its own. Both 
New York and New Hampshire granted charters to most of the 
other lands m what is now Vci-mont ; hence the coiiiinunity was 
naturally divided into two factions. Ncav York feebly defended 
its claims. New Hampshire was more aggressive. The move- 



Fourth Generation 95 

ment to form a new state out of this disputed territory became 
very strong and was supported by the famous ' ' Green Mountain 
Boys" and opposed by the ''York Party" who had their head- 
quarters at Guilford. Both parties vigorously supported the 
Revolution against England ; hence the Continental Congress 
evaded any positive or final recognition of either for fear of 
offending the other side with the natural result that both were 
dissatisfied and both ignored the laws of Congress. Each one 
also ignored the laws of New York or New Hampshire according 
to their preferences. 

In Guilford they governed themselves entirely and settled 
all questions by a vote in the town meeting. Here the "York 
Party" had possession of all the old town records, but for the 
seven years of the Revolution they kept no records, not even 
of their own proceedings. 

Hezekiah took an active part in the Revolution in behalf 
of the Colonies. For his services in it and in compensation for 
the lands in Guilford taken from him, the State of New York 
gave him, in 1783, 840 acres and gave his son Asa 220 acres in 
Bainbridge, in what is now Jericho, to which place he moved, 11 
July 1786, being the first inhabitant and pioneer settler there. 
He first located at Bettsburg (name changed to Jericho in 1789) 
on the east side of the Susquehanna River, living at one time on 
an island of 40* acres knowTi as "Stowell Island". In 1790 he 
moved to the west side of the river to what is now Afton, formed 
from Bainbridge, 18 Nov. 1857 ; he was buried there. 

Hezekiah is said to have had eleven children. His eldest, 
Levi, is recorded as born in Worcester and Elijah and Persis in 
Petersham. Asa, the second child, was probably born in Peter- 
sham, though not recorded there. The date and place of birth 
of the other children are unknown as all the old family records 
were destroyed when the old "Stowell Homestead" built by 
Hezekiah was burned in 1900. 

Hezekiah was one of the grantees of Townshend, Vt., 21 
June 1759 and of Chester, Vt., 3 Nov. 1761, both New Hamp- 
shire grants. He held the following offices in Guilford, Vt. : 
Pound Keeper, 17 May 1774. On the Committee of Correspon- 
dence for Liberty, Westminster, Vt., 7 Feb. 1775. Captain in 
Ephraim Doolittle's Regt., 20 May 1775. Surveyor, 6 May 1776.

Guilford, Vt., in 1784, by the York Party. As David and Heze- 
kiah were very active in support of the York Party at Guilford, 
Hugh was probably their brother. After the Revolution, Heze- 
kiah went to Bainbridge, N. Y., and descendants of Hugh appear 
at Oswego, but I have been unable to definitely trace Hugh or

iv. Mardin or Marvin, born about 1786. I have found no record 
of the birth of either a Mardin or Marvin, but in an inventory' 
of the estate of Seth Stowell, 26 April 1800, Mardin Stowell is 
mentioned as one of the heirs. (Union, Conn. Probates, 26 
AprU 1800.) 

The Town Clerk of Tolland, Conn, reports that a Marvin 
Stowell bought land in ToUand in Feb. 1813, and sold land 
in June 1814. 

Marvin Stowell, tanner of Cazenovia, sold land to Eliakim 
Sylvester, 19 Aug. 1816 and sold land to Isaac Morse, 20 June 
1826. (Madison Co., N. Y. Deeds.) 

Orlando Holt Stowell of Delphi, b. West Woodstock, N. Y., 
age 68, (b. about 1822) son of Marvin and Lucy (Holton) 
Stowell, m. New Woodstock, N. Y., 31 March 1890, Mary Jane 
Daly of New Woodstock, b. Fabius, N. Y., age 52, dau. of Isaac 
and Angeline (Smith) Daly. (Vital Statistics of N. Y.) 

As Mardin Stowell had sisters Olive and Artemesia, who 
lived at New Woodstock, which is near Cazenovia, it would seem 
that Mardin and Marvin might be the same person.

On list 26 July 1756. On return dated Camp at Fort William

To the Honorable Spencer Phips, Esq., Lieut. Governor 
and Commander-in-Chief in and over His Majesty's Province 
of the Massachusetts Bay and to the House of Representatives 
in General Court assembled, 8 Feb. A. D. 1757 : 

The petition of Jacob Stowell of Needham, in the County 
of Suffolk, blacksmith. Humbly showeth that your Petitioner 
served in the expedition against Crown Point the year past, 
that your Petitioner went in the Spring and came away with 
the last soldiers that marched off in the Fall. Your Petitioner 
served in the Company raised by Capt. James Stebbins and 
since his decease commanded by Capt. William Humphrey, 
in Col. Ruggles' Regt., that your Petitioner was sick before he 



Fourth Generation 121 

set out on his march home when your Petitioner came to the 
town of Sheffield he could travel no further and a man and horse 
were sent to the said town and brought your Petitioner home, 
which cost your Petitioner the sum of four pounds and two 
shillings lawful money. 

Wherefore your Petitioner Humbly Prays that your Honor 
and this Honorable Court would be pleased to allow and order 
that your Petitioner shall be paid the said four pounds and two 
shillings, exclusive of his wages, or to do whatever in your Wis- 
dome and Justice you shall think reasonable and as in duty 
bound your Petitioner shall ever pray. 

Jacob Stowell. 
The Committee report four pounds 
and two shillings in full. 

William Richardson, per order. 

Jacob first bought land in .Uxbridge, per Worcester Deed, 
27 June 1760, and is therein described as of Dedham, and his 
daughter Mary is recorded as born in Dedham, his old home, 
in 1762. In nine Worcester Deeds 1761 to 1763, he bought and 
sold lands in Uxbridge, Douglas and Royalshire and is described 
therein as of Uxbridge. He next appears in Vermont, per Doc. 
Hist, of New York by Sec. of State, Vol. 4, p. 406-408. 1 Nov. 
1770, Jacob Stowell, one of the signers on a petition of the 
inhabitants of Cumberland and Gloucester Counties in the 
Province of New York on the west side of the Connecticut River 
for relief against the New Hampshire Grants, saying disorder- 
ly persons in Windsor, Cumberland County had obstructed 
the Court of Common Pleas of New York, they claiming juris- 
diction belonged to New Hampshire instead of to New York. 

He evidently had selected Windsor as his permanent home 
though his first purchase of land there was not until the second 
of Jan. 1778, which was jugt the time Burgoyne was invading 
Vermont. Between that date, 1778 and 1806, his name appears 
on seven Windsor Deeds. He does not appear of record to have 
lived there until about 6 Jan. 1782, when he renewed the Cov- 
enant at the East Parish Old South Congregational Church. 
His name appears on the tax list, 7 March 1786 and he was 
made a Trustee of School District No. 5 in 1786. In 1799 for 
one dollar he gave a perpetual lease to School District No. 12

of lot 8, Eange 9, which was a part of his property of 240 acres, 
"so long as it was used for school purposes." The school was 
still in use in 1920. 

The following incident which the compiler copied from 
the First Church records shows the rigid church methods of 
those days. The First Church extended a call to Mr, Shuttle- 
worth to become their pastor. Afterwards the Trustees thought 
he was too liberal and dismissed him. Most of the congregation 
liked him and organized a separate church which Jacob and his 
w^fe joined and attended regularly. The old church wrote 
Jacob and his wife to know why they had neglected to attend 
communion for three consecutive Sundays. After several let- 
ters they finally sent a Committee to personally deliver a warn- 
ing that if by a fixed date they did not confess and renew the 
Covenant they would be excommunicated. The committee re- 
-■^•'oA that when they presented the warning "Jacob threat- 
ened to foot them out of the house for annoying his wife," so 
Jacob and wife were excommunicated, 7 Sept. 1792. Beulah, 
Jacob's wife, was restored to the communion, 6 Feb. 1820, some 
28 years later, Jacob having died in 1806. 
"~ Will of Jacob Stowell filed 26 Nov. 1806. Elias Hoisington, 
appointed Executor, deceased before settling the estate when 
Abram Morey Avas appointed 24 Jan. 1811. One of the witnesses 
to the Codicil was Betsey Stowell, wife of son Jacob. Son

Stowell who was the first one of the name to join. He was a 
prominent lawyer of Westfield, N. Y, which place with Palmyra 
was the first center of the new faith founded in 1830. The 
following account of the way Agustus O. A. came to join the 
Church was written by his son William Rufus Rogers Stowell 
and has been taken from his family records. 

"In Feb. 1833, when Augustus O. A, and his oldest son 
Dan were going to Westfield, N. Y. they overtook a Mrs, Brew- 
ster and invited her to ride. He remarked 'It is a very cold 
day,' She replied, 'Yes, it is exceedingly cold, nevertheless, it did 
not prevent five persons from being baptised today.' He ex- 
pressed surprise and inquired, 'Of what denomination?' She 
replied. 'Mormon.' He remarked he had never before heard 
of such a religion. She replied, 'They are a new sect of religion- 



Fifth Generation 221 

ists and I am now on my way to attend one of tlieir meetings.' 
She extended to him an invitation to be present which he 
accepted, sending his son Dan home with the team to inform his 
family." 

"About eleven o'clock A. M;. next day he arrived home 
accompanied by a Mr. Higbee who came with him to the saw 
mill of Augustus O. A. to buy a load of lumber. An important 
feature was that Augustus 0. A. brought home with him a 
'Book of Mormon' which had been loaned him by a neighbor, 
Mr. John Gould. He told his family what he had seen and 
heard, read the book, became absorbed in it and studied it 
intently, but made no comment until after he had twice care- 
fully read it through, when he closed it with emphasis and said 
with conviction, ' That book is as true as the Bible. ' This copy 
was of the first edition, printed in Palmyra, N. Y. in 1830 and is 
still in possession of the family." 

"Augustus 0. A. was baptised in his own mill pond by Elder 
James Higbee, the same man who accompanied him home from 
that first meeting. Soon after this his wife, his eldest son Dan 
and some of his daughters joined, but the second son William 
Rufus Rogers did not join until Aug. 1834, a year later." 

' ' At this time the Mormons who were actively proselyting 
were also being subjected to violent persecutions, their property 
destroyed, and their persons assailed by hostile mobs, so they 
were forced to move from place to place, gradually gravitating 
West into what was then a new and sparsely populated country. 
They finally selected Jackson County, Missouri, as their pro- 
spective central headquarters." 

"In 1834 a military body called "Zion Camp" composed 
wholly of Mormons was organized and marched from Ohio to 
Missouri to defend their brethern, while the Elders strove to 
prevent the disintegration of their Church, already commenced, 
because of apostacy through fear and persecutions." 

"These persecutions had an important bearing upon the 
relationship of Augustus 0. A. to the Mormon Church for they 
served to weaken his faith in his religion. He was a stong patriot 
and a loyal citizen to his Government which he thought the 
Church antagonized. These views caused him to sacrifice his 



222 The Stowell Genealogy 

religion to his patriotism and he withdrew from the Church. 
He was doubtless honest in his motives but in error as to his 
facts. He returned to Westfield, N. Y,, resumed the practice 
of law and became prominent in his profession, having previously- 
been admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of N. Y., 11 May 
1808. He became intolerant and finally forbid his wife and 
children from attending Church or associating with the Saints, 
but his son William Rufus Rogers continued in the Church. He 
had accompanied them in their migrations to Nauvoo, 111. and 
was Captain of a military company in the pilgrimage over the 
Desert to Salt Lake City and in all their battles with the hostile 
Indians. He was ordained an Elder and rose through all the 
various Church offices until he became a Patriarch, the highest 
of all except the President." 

To make the record complete it might be added that none 
of the brothers or sisters of Augustus 0. A. ever joined the 
Komion Church. Some of the daughtei^ of A. 0. A. however, 
joined and remained in it. Dan, the eldest son of A. 0. A. 
joined when a boy, but after he grew up lost all interest in the 
Church and remained in New York and Indiana until 1853 when 
he started with his wife and family of six children for California, 
but was killed while on the way by the Indians at the massacre 
at Provo, 16 March 1854. Some of Dan's descendants are 
members of the Church and some are not. 

Augustus, the third and only other son of A. 0. A., remained 
in New York State and never joined the Mormon Church, nor 
did any of his children. 

Franklin K. Lane, former Sec. of the Interior, writes, 
''Never speak disrespectfully of the Mormon Church. It has 
as law abiding, hard working and kindly a group of people as 
will be found anywhere. They worked a miracle when a few 
hundred crossed the continent, going into an unknown waste 
and turned that desert that lies around Salt Lake City into a 
garden. ' ' 

Sir William Willcocks, the great irrigation expert, who 
built the Assuan Dam in Egypt and developed the greatest 
irrigation enterprise in the world, came to the United States to 
examine our irrigation projects. He reported, "No where else

have I ever seen people who understand so wisely how to apply 
water to land as those living around Salt Lake City."

though she was a son of Oliver.

Resided in Warren and Worcester, Mass. Was a shoemaker. 

Martin Stowell was one of the leaders in the attempt to 
rescue the fugitive slave, Anthony Burns, who had been arrested 
in May 1854 for deportation south. It was the most daring and 
famous attempt at slave rescue of the pre-war period. 

Thomas W. Higginson on 26 May 1854, called a meeting of 
the Vigilance Committee to which Wendell Phillips, Theodore 
Parker and other celebrated abolitionists belonged. A committee 
of seven, including Martin Stowell, was named to meet that 
evening in Faneuil Hall where a mass meeting also was to be 
held upon the question. Martin Stowell, who had been sum- 
moned by T. W. Higginson, arrived from Worcester at six P. M. 
and was ready with a plan which was adopted. This was that 
each member should lead five picked men and rescue the negro 
while the mass meeting was being held, with the expectation 
that the crowd would rush to the Court House and help rescue 
Bums. The attempt failed through lack of time to fully or- 
ganize, but about thirty men battered down the doors and fired 
many shots and one deputy marshal was killed. The leaders 
were arrested and tried, but released.

Martin Stowell had previously taken part in a slave rescue 
in Syracuse, N. Y. and later was associated with T. W. Higgin-

Later was in the Civil War as Sergt. Major of Co. C, 5th
