The system of numeration will be easily understood, as the 
heavy numbers such as 44 and 45 on the left side of page 207 
precede heads of families and have been repeated from pages 
179 and 180, where they appear as light faced figures preceding 
the same names as children of the families of numbers J8 and J9. 
Similarly the light faced figures, 106, 107 and 108 on page 207 will 
be found repeated as heavy faced figures on pages 260 and 261, 
preceding the same Christian names as before, but as heads of 
families. Thus one can trace lines either way through the book. 

The small numerals just above, and to the right of the names, 
indicate the generation. 


Page 188, thirteenth line from the bottom, "Ann Stillman" 
should read "Ann Silliman." 

Page 206, seventh line from the top, " Ridgefiled" should read 
" Ridgefield." 

Page 339, fifth line from the bottom, " Thaddeus Crame " 
should read "Thaddeus Crane." 


To the Wakeman Family: 

This genealogy is offered to the family with a feeling that it is 
very far short of what a good and complete history of the family 
should be; and while some of the statistical omissions are 
owing to a lack of ability on the part of the author to procure 
them from various records, a part of this is owing to loss or 
the destruction of records of churches or towns, and of valuable 
papers belonging to earlier members of the family ; a notable case 
being the burning a very few years ago of pamphlets and papers 
that formerly belonged to the Rev. Samuel Wakeman by a New 
York city teacher, to whom they descended. These papers, etc., 
would have sold for considerable money. The scattering of our 
family in nearly every state of the Union, many moving and 
leaving little or no clew, has been another obstacle. 

The work had its inception in data left the writer by his 
father, which included only his direct line ; and at the time that 
the writer was adding to it he met the Rev. Levi H. Wake- 
man of Stamford, Conn., who had collected considerable his- 
torical matter from colonial records, which he contributed to the 

From this start search was made through various church and 
town records, and many families in the old home town of Fair- 
field, Conn., were seen, also the addresses of others were pro- 
cured and written to, so that gradually an accumulation of data 
was made. This was followed up with reasonable diligence from 
1874 to about 1880, and from replies obtained, more addresses 
were added to the list. During the time from 1880 to 1895 com- 
paratively little progress was made, and in the early part of 1896 
it was thought that the data on hand should be rearranged, show- 
ing just where further data was needed. 

In doing this it was found necessary to write to some of the 
parties. From their replies and from many directories many 
addresses were procured and circulars sent out. Mr. F. E. Sands, 


a Meriden member of the family, offered to assist by furnishing 
the blanks and circulars needed, and has rendered material aid. 
Mrs. B. Wheaton Clark, of Lockport, N. Y., has also been dili- 
gent in collecting data regarding the family. Rev. J. B. Wake- 
man, of Rock Rift, N. Y., Mrs. Lydia Gould, of Sidney, N. Y., 
Mr. G. B. Wakeman, of Unadilla, N. Y., Mrs. Mary Wakeman, 
of Lawyersville, N. Y., and many others have helped very much 
in the matter. 

When, in June, 1897, it was thought best to start a more active 
research as to our English ancestry, subscriptions were asked for 
to defray this expense, and the responses have resulted in our 
procuring English data desired at about one-tenth what many have 
paid for similar results. Contributions for this work were re- 
ceived from the following: 

Mrs. W. D. Gookin, Southport, Conn. 

Mrs. C. B. Tompkins, of New York City. 

Mr. Jesup Wakeman, of New York City. 

Mr. Samuel Wakeman, of Ballston Spa, N. Y. 

Mr. J. Finlay Wakeman, of Ballston Spa, N. Y. 

Dr. Emory McClintock, of New York City. 

Mrs. E. B. Proctor, of Boston, Mass. 

Mr. W. B. Wakeman, of Arcadia, La. 

Mrs. W. B. VanWagenen, of Southport, Conn. 

Mrs. A. M. Longacre, of Philadelphia, Pa. 

Mrs. W. W. Wakeman, of Southport, Conn. 

Miss Cornelia W. Crapo, of Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Mrs. L. B. C. Evans, of New York City. 

Messrs. J. F. and Samuel Wakeman, of Ballston Spa, also col- 
lected valuable inscriptions from cemeteries that were of assist- 

Mr. Edward Deacon, of the Fairfield County Historical 
Society, has rendered invaluable aid and assistance, both in col- 
lecting American data and in connection with the English 
researches, which he was very well qualified to do, owing to his 
thorough familiarity with English methods and sources of in- 

Dr. Emory McClintock (a member of the family), of New 
York City, has laid the family under great obligations to him 
because of the great personal interest he has taken in the work, 
giving to it the benefit of his researches in libraries, of a trip to 
England, and of research there at a considerable expense of time 
and money. He has also, by English correspondence and a 


liberal use of fees, procured much valuable information regarding 
our early English ancestors, and has given us the benefit of his 
scholarly mind and excellent understanding of such matters. To 
those who may notice omissions, or who fail to see any family 
names or dates that they think should appear in the book, we 
would say that if they will send them to the writer at Southport, 
Conn., he will see that they are arranged and printed on separate 
sheets, to be gummed in the book at the proper place, stub leaves 
being inserted for this purpose. 

Thanking all who have helped in the matter, and asking the 
charitable consideration of all for errors or omissions, 

I am very truly your kinsman, 



When thought and memory backward turn, 
With love for all ancestral lore, 

We find there's much that we can learn, 
As research yields so rich a store. 


Oh, yeomanry of early days ! 

Of Puritan New England's birth! 
Ye brought across broad seas the ways 

Of righteousness and sterling worth. 

For ye were found in walks of life, 
Where trust and honor were reposed, 

Bearing your part in battle's strife 

Ere the dark tomb your forms enclosed. 

By you our sturdy laws were made 
In early stern Colonial days, 

With blue-law feature, strict and staid, 
As Old New England's rigid ways. 

While many followed arts of peace, 

And preached the word, or tilled the land, 

Erst as physicians, illness eased, 

Or practiced law with vigorous hand. 

Earnest and true the lives ye led ; 

High was the goal of all your aims ; 
Ye earned by toil your daily bread ; 

With pride our history writes your names. 


And now with reverence and respect 
We tread the ways our fathers trod, 

Pursuing on with zeal direct 

The path to righteousness and God. 

Robert P. Wakeman. 



THE word " Wakeman " is defined in Worcester's 
* dictionary as "the title of the chief magistrate of 
the town of Ripon, Yorkshire, England." It seems to 
have meant "wide-awake man." At one time it was 
pronounced as if to rhyme with Parkman, or rather with 
what the latter would be — Pa'kman — if the "r" was 
silent; but by about 1650 the pronunciation had 
changed to " Wackman." At Ripon the title descended 
from father to son and gave rise to the surname of 

From 1473 to 1479 William Wakeman was priest of 
the chapel of St. Mary at Kidderminster, near the 
northern border of Worcestershire. At the same time 
John Wakeman lived at Drayion, a small hamlet some 
four miles distant, in the rural parish of Chaddesley 
Corbett. The family tradition, recorded by Burke, 
makes them brothers, sons of a William Wakeman. 
The same tradition states the name of John's wife as 
Alice Wormelay. 

The earliest pedigree now extant is that of the Wake- 
man's of Beckford, in Gloucestershire. It is given in 
several ancient manuscripts preserved in the British 
Museum, and may be found in the "Gloucestershire 
Visitations " published by the Harleian Society. Under 
the Tudors and Stuarts it was customary for the heralds 
to make tours or "visitations" throughout the various 
counties of England, stopping at the houses of the gen- 
try to bring their pedigree up to date and, when 
necessary, to arrange for reviving or granting coats of 


arms. Those who declined to pay their fees were regu- 
larly listed as not entitled to be classed as gentlemen, 
some of these lists being still preserved. In 1586 the 
heralds granted to Richard Wakeman of Beckford a 
coat of arms which, according to the "Blazonry 
of Episcopacy," had belonged to his uncle, John 
Wakeman, bishop of Gloucestershire, from 1541 to 
1549. The names of their fathers and grandfathers 
preserved in the "Visitation " may be accepted as hav- 
ing been stated by them to the heralds, and probably 
also those of elder brothers, as follows: 

John Wakeman of Drayton, 
William Wakeman of Drayton, 

William Wakeman of Drayton, John Wakeman, bishop. 

Roger Wakeman, Richard Wakeman. 

William Wakeman, 
Edward Wakeman. 

The houses of the brothers Roger and Richard were 
included at great length in the manuscripts, as the re- 
sult of subsequent inquiries on the part of the heralds. 
They also noted that the bishop's mother was an heiress 
named Godespayne, aud that his brother William's wife 
was of a family named Clarke, whose arms were 
sketched. The Wakeman arms as recognized in the 
" Visitation," for the families of both brothers, were 
borne by Roger's descendants at Tewkesbury and by 
Richard's at Beckford. They were engraved, for ex- 
ample, in 1634 on a tomb in Tewkesbury church. 


Tewkesbury (or Theocsbury), dates from mediaeval 
times, and the monastery (Anglo-Saxon) was of small 
importance prior to the Norman conquest. 

(Now in Tewksbury Abbey.) 


Robert Fitz-Hamon — one of the Norman nobles — 
married a niece of William the Conqueror, and on the 
death of the latter, his son bestowed upon Fitz-Hamon 
the estates known as "the honor of Gloucester, "includ- 
ed in which was Tewkesbury. Fitz-Hamon resolved to 
build a great ''Abbey of Expiation," being- pricked by a 
consciousness of wrongs done by him in his many wars. 
The result of this resolve was the noble church. In the 
fourteenth century the eastern portion was reconstruct- 
ed, and in the Lancastrian Battle of Tewkesbury some 
time later, the abbey was much destroyed. The recent 
restoration was begun in 1875, and now shows (see il- 
lustration) a restored structure. In 1539 most of the 
abbey buildings were destroyed save Abbot Wakeman's 
house. In the abbey is to be seen the beautifully deco- 
rated cenotaph of Abbot Wakeman, the first Bishop of 
Gloucester. (See cut.) A copy of this cenotaph was 
exhibited in the Crystal Palace, London, 185 1. 

John Wakeman, younger son of the first William, 
was born before 1490, and at an early age entered a 
monastery, because about 15 10 he was at Oxford as a 
Benedictine monk, an inmate of Gloucestershire college, 
then a house of that order. While a monk he bore the 
name of John Wich, according to a custom then fre- 
quently followed, by which monks were designated 
after places from which they came. The name of Wich 
has caused much speculation. An explanation not here- 
tofore suggested is that his monastic career may have 
begun at a house of Augustinian friars at Droitwich, not 
far from his home, a town then known simply as Wich. 
As he became abbot of Tewkesbury in 1 5 3 1 , he was 
probably connected with Tewkesbury abbey before go- 
ing to take his degree of B.D. at Oxford Tradition 
had it that his mother was an heiress, which if true, 
might help to account for his elevation ; but his learning, 
his talent as a preacher, and his force of character, were 


grounds sufficient, apart from family influence. As 
abbot he sat in the House of Lords, and attracting the 
attention of Henry VIII., was appointed king's chap- 
lain. The holding of this confidential position indicates 
that he approved Henry's course in breaking up the 
monasteries and pensioning their inmates, devoting 
some of their lands to church and college purposes and 
dividing the remainder among individuals, avowedly to 
enlist so great an influence in favor of the change that 
it could never be reversed. How effective this course 
was, came to be proved wh^n Queen Mary discovered 
that this alone of her father's religious changes was be- 
yond her power to reverse Tewkesbury abbey was 
dissolved in 1539, but the king's chaplain recovered his 
seat in the House of Lords in 1541. when he became the 
first bishop of the new see of Gloucester. He is said to 
have been one of the early translators of the Bible. 
Dying in 1549, he escaped the martyrdom which befell 
his successor, Hooper, under Mary. The place of death 
is uncertain, but was believed by Wood {At hence Ox- 
onienses) to have been " Forthampton, where he had a 
house and a private chapel " The house doubtless ap- 
pertained to the bishopric, but if not, would have de- 
scended to his legal heir, Roger. His will mentions 
personal property only, which he left to two younger 
brothers and their families. 

As the king's chaplain was also a peer of the realm, 
he must have been the most influential man in his own 
part of England. Approving the distribution of the 
monastery land, as he must have done, he could not 
stand in the way of his own relatives without drawing 
suspicion upon his private opinion of that method of 
personal aggrandizement. We find, in fact, that his 
near relatives removed from Drayton to Gloucestershire ; 
his nephew, Roger, to Forthampton, where he died not 
long after the bishop's death, and where there certainly 


were monastery lands; his nephew, Richard, to the 
lands of the priory of Beckford after its dissolution ; his 
brother, Thomas, to South wick, a locality near Tewkes- 
bury, which had been the property of the abbey; and 
his brother, Richard, to the Mythe, an estate near 
Tewkesbury, of which the earlier ownership is not 
known. A little later the Mythe became the seat of 
Roger's descendants, probably by purchase from those 
of his uncle Richard. 

Of Roger we learn from the " Visitation " that he 
had an heir, William, and that he was himself an heir 
to the family lands at Drayton, though apparently re- 
siding elsewhere, as he is not described as " of Dray- 
ton." He must have been the Roger Wakeman who 
studied at All Souls' college, Oxford, about 151 6. His 
will of 1552 describes his residence as at Forthampton, 
and disposes of an amount of property which shows him 
to have been better off than all others of his name at 
that time. It names a wife, Joan, William, the eldest 
son, and John and Thomas, younger sons, besides vari- 
ous daughters, one of them named Anne; and enjoins 
upon William to grant the Drayton lands to John on a 
forty years' lease at the nominal annual rental of three 
peppercorns, to begin after the death or marriage of 
the wife Joan. William of Tewkesbury in his turn died 
in 1587, leaving the Drayton lands to his heir Edward 
by special mention in his will. These wills and the 
" Gloucestershire Visitation " agree in all points.* 

John Wakeman of Drayton, second son named in the 
will of Roger, was living, obviously on his father's 
property, in Chaddesley, for years before his father's 

*Burke's account of the family arbitrarily assigns to this Roger the chil- 
dren named in the -'Exeter Visitation," as having belonged to another 
Roger ' of Woodrowe," a place not far from Drayton. The Exeter branch 
secured the use of the bishop's arms by representing their ancestor Roger 
of Woodrowe to have been his brother, as of course he may have been for 
all that is known to the contrary. 


death, and had doubtless been left in charge of the old 
home when the rest of the bishop's family went to 
Gloucestershire. By his father's will he was to have 
the Drayton estate as his own property for forty years 
after the death or marriage of the widow, but mean- 
while he would be under the necessity of paying regular 
rent to his eldest brother William. The situation was 
not satisfactory, and soon after 1557 he removed with 
his family from the parish. The names of his children 
identify him perfectly. He was a son of Roger and 
nephew of Richard (of Beckford), and had a sister 
Anne; and the parish record of Chaddesley states that 

on August 9, 1545, he married Joan , and that 

his children were baptized as follows: 

Roger, September 12, 1546; Anne, March 7, 1548-9; 
John, May 10, 1552 (buried May 20, 1554); John 
February 20, 1554-5; Richard, January 1, 1556-7 
(buried February 15, 1556-7) No trace of any of the 
five survivors is found later in the well-kept parish 
register of Chaddesley, except that it bears evidence to 
the subsequent return of the younger John, no doubt 
after the beginning of the term of forty years during 
which John of Drayton was to possess the ancestral 
estate. The nature of the evidence relating to the re- 
turn of the younger John cannot be indicated clearly 
without due mention of other Wakemans then in the 

In the reign of Elizabeth, Chaddesley Corbett, was, 
as indeed it still is, a secluded rural parish. The chief 
road through it ended at the next village. The ham- 
lets of Chaddesley and Drayton, within the parish, were 
almost too insignificant to be called villages. The roads 
were wretched, and communication was difficult and in- 
frequent. The nearest town worth mentioning was 
Bewdley, seven miles distant. A book on heraldry 
mentions Chaddesley with an expression of surprise 


1 3 

that several families of importance named Wakeman, 
in different counties, should trace their origin to this 
obscure spot. That exodus had, however, already 
taken place, and what was now left was the Drayton 
estate and two poor relatives named Simon and Richard 
Wakeman with their families Perhaps they were 
brothers; Richard's wife was named Frances and both 
named daughters Frances.* Their other daughters 
need not be mentioned. Simon was married in 1557, 
and his sons were Simon and William, who appear to 
have removed early from the parish; and Simon him- 
self died in 1589 or 1590. Richard's only son was John, 
born 1569 and married 1594. Richard, who was a tailor, 
died in 1598 or 1599, naming in his will as "kinsmen" 
John Wakeman, Simon Wakeman, William Wakeman. 
The sons of Simon last named were less important than 
"John Wakeman," who was either some one who did 
not belong to the parish, or else the present holder of 
the Drayton estate. That it was the latter is indicated 
by the record of the burial on February 10, 1591 or 
1592, of Thomas Wakeman, son of John Wakeman. As 
the Wakeman estate now belonged to John of Drayton, 
apparently born about 1524, or to his children, one of 
whom was John, born in Chaddesley in 1554 or 1555, 
and as there is no chance worth discussing that any 
strange Wakeman would come to a place like Chaddes- 
ley, it is strongly probable that the estate was, in 1591, 
in the possession of the younger John, who had returned, 
bringing with him at least a son named Thomas. 

The only Wakeman entries (mentioning males) in the 
Chaddesley register, from its beginning in 1539 to the 
present time, besides those already indicated (and the 
baptism in 1545 of a child whose father lived in the next 

*Simon's Frances was bur>ed as a daughter on April 17, 1571, thirty days 
after her baptism as a son; a mistake just contrary to one at Bewdley in 
1502, when a Francis Wakeman, well-known later, was baptized as a 


parish), are as follows: William (obviously of Bel- 
broughton parish) married in Chaddesley in 1553; 
Philip, son of Richard, baptized in 1592; John, son of 
Francis, buried May 8, 1595; John Wakeman, buried 
July 3, 1635. There is no baptism of any child of John, 
son of Richard the tailor, who was married in 1594, nor 
is there any note of his burial or that of his wife. He 
must therefore have left the parish, like the sons of 
Simon (the widows of Simon and Richard were both 
buried elsewhere), leaving only John Wakeman, owner 
of the Drayton estate — for forty years — as the sole rep- 
resentative of the family in its ancient seat until his 
death in 1635. There are only two entries unexplained 
in this record of a century, the baptism of Philip, son 
of Richard, and the burial of John, son of Francis. 
Neither this Richard nor Francis belonged to the parish 
(for the tailor Richard's wife Frances was too old to 
have a child in 1592), so that both of them must have 
been near relatives of the younger John Wakeman of 
Drayton, and as such have had some right to make their 
temporary home at his house. There was indeed no- 
where else for them to go, unless to stay with old 
Richard, the tailor, for Simon was dead and his family 
scattered. The stranger Richard may probably have 
been the third son named in his will by William of 
Tewkesbury, and if so, he was cousin to the present 
John of Drayton. Who Francis was remains to be seen. 
There was no one of that name in the Tewkesbury 
branch, nor does the closest search reveal any trace of 
a Francis Wakeman elsewhere, except at Bewdley. 

Meantime, what became of John of Drayton, the 
father, who left Chaddesley with his wife Joan and his 
children, Roger, Anne and John, in or soon after 1557? 
Search elsewhere fails to show the presence of such a 
family or any clue to it, except at Bewdley, in the 
parish of Ribbesford, seven miles from Chaddesley. 


Unfortunately the parish register of Ribbesford dates 
only from 1574, so that the death of the child Roger, 
the marriage of Anne, and the baptism of a son Francis, 
assuming them to have taken place at Bewdley, cannot 
be proved by any extant record. What we do find is a 
record of the burial, March 27, 1587, of "Joan, wife of 
John Wakeman, the tanner," neither of them being 
mentioned before or afterwards. And we know that 
there was not then within many miles of Drayton 
another place which John Wakeman could find so ad- 
vantageous to a country gentleman's son seeking to bet- 
ter himself as this very town of Bewdley close by. 

Bewdley — Beau-lieu, " beautiful place " — on the far- 
ther bank of the Severn, had been a royal residence in 
earlier times, and the palace on the hill was still occa- 
sionally visited by the Princess Elizabeth or some other 
important personage. Its location at the only bridge 
over the great river, and practically at the head of navi- 
gation for the boats then in use, made it the chief com- 
mercial and industrial town in that part of England, 
next of course to Bristol, at the mouth of the same 
river, which was then at the height of its prosperity as 
the principal seaport of the country. Burton, the his- 
torian of Bewdley, says that cap-making alone "at one 
time afforded employment to probably 1,000 people in 
Bewdley. ... In the time of Elizabeth there were 
twelve tanyards in Bewdley, and tanners have been 
among its greatest benefactors. . . . The markets 
have dwindled by degrees, and instead of thirty-two 
butchers holding stalls in the shambles, there are now 
only two " On the land side the Wyer forest came 
close to the town, affording unusual facilities for the tan- 
ning trade. 

" John Wakeman, the tanner," of 1587 was so-called 
as the master of a tanyard, as employees were then re- 
garded as merely servants, their bare names being 
entered on the parish register without distinctive 


designation. It was no part of the function of a clergy- 
man to collect statistics concerning the occupations of ob- 
scure individuals, but it was the regular custom of the 
rector of Ribbesford to note the callings of masters in 
the different trades when entering their names in his 
parish register. Ever since 1576, for example, there 
were baptisms of children of plain " John Wakeman," 
whom we may distinguish as John of Belbroughton, 
because his will indicates that parish as the probable 
place of his origin, and who was certainly no near rela- 
tive of Francis Wakeman. The latter appears in 1590 
or 1 59 1. en the occasion of the baptism of his first child 
(he had been married at Eastham in 1589), as " Francis 
Wakeman, the tanner." In 1592 plain John of Bel- 
broughton has a son baptized Francis, showing close re- 
lations, as distinguished from relationship, with Francis 
the master tanner. On April 23, 1593, Francis is no 
longer noted as "the tanner," on the occasion of the 
baptism of his second daughter, while on September 23, 
1594, John Wakeman (presumably of Belbroughton), 
whose daughter Mary was then buried, was entered as 
" the tanner," a designation afterwards repeatedly given 
to John of Belbroughton. That is to say, Francis gave 
up his tanyard, and John of Belbroughton became 
master of it, or of another, about 1593. From the 
action of John of Belbroughton in 1592, in naming his 
son after Francis, the master tanner, a much younger 
man than himself, it seems strongly probable that he 
was Francis's employee before becoming his successor 
in the Wakeman tan -yard.* Francis's failure as a 

*Of seven children of John of Belbroughton baptized at Bewdley, the first 
two, before 11=87, and the next three after that date, were noted as children 
of plain "John Wakeman," while the last two were of "John Wakeman, the 
tanner." Lest any suppose that the rector applied his trade-titles haphaz- 
ard, and that the Joan who died in 1587 was merely the first wife of John of 
Belbroughton, it may be added that if so, the first wife Joan named a daugh- 
ter Elizabeth, and the second wife, Elizabeth, named her first daughter, 
Joan. The rector omitted a master's trade now and then, but such omis- 
sions were exceptional. 


tanner may be excused by his youth and inexperience, 
but in view of his youth and inexperience, he could not, 
apparently, have stepped into control of such a business 
unless he was placed in it by, or succeeded to his own 

Francis appears next in Chaddesley, where his son 
John was buried in May, 1595. Why he should retire to 
Chaddesley, far from his wife's connections, unless be- 
cause it was his own family's home, is inconceivable. 
His next son also was named John, and his persistence 
in naming his sons John accords well with the other 
facts which indicate that that was his father's name. 
In 1596 he reappears at Bewdley, on the occasion of 
another baptism, and at this time, and uniformly until 
his death in 1626, he is noted as " the cooper." In his 
will he left a legacy to his brother John, of whom no 
other trace appears on the records at Bewdley. 

One simple explanation fits all the known facts: 
Francis was son of John and Joan, of Drayton, and 
brother of the younger John, of Drayton; the elder 
John being son of Roger and brother of William, who 
were successively recognized as the heads of the Wake- 
man family. 

The following is from Burton's " History of Bewdley. " 

" The earliest mention of the modern Bewdley occurs 
under its old Saxon name of Wribbenhall — a name still 
retained by the adjacent village on the eastern side of 
the Severn. In the time of William the Conqueror both 
formed part of the great manor of Kidderminster. 

"The spelling in 1304 was Beaulieu, changing to 
Beaudeley about 1472, and Beaudley about 1539. Cam- 
den ( 1 551-1623) gives the same derivation. ' Bewdley,' 
says he, ' takes its name from its most pleasant sit- 
uation. — 

" « Delirium rerum Bellus Locus undique floret 
Fronde coronatus Virianae tempora sylvae.' 


"Which Bishop Gibson translates thus: 

" ' Fair seated Bewdley, a delightful town, 
Which Wyre's tall oaks with shady branches crown.' 

"Dr. Stukelyin a letter from Bewdley, September 17, 
1 7 12, says: ' Were I to choose a country residence for 
health and pleasure, it would undoubtedly be on the 
west side of the island, not far from this river (Severn), 
and where it is most distant from the sea.' 

" Leland has left us a descriptive account of the town 
as it appeared about 1539: 

" 'From Kidderminster to Beaudley two miles by a 
fayre downe, but somewhat barren, as the Veyne is 
thereabout on every syde of Beaudley for a little com- 
passe. I entered into Beaudley, in Schropshire, as 
some saye, by a goodly fayre bridge, over Severne of 
(five) great arches of stone, being even then in new 

' ' ' This bridge is onely on Severne betwixt Beaudley and 
Worcester bridge. To this bridge resort many fiatt 
long vessels to carry up & downe all manner of mer- 
chandize to Beaudley & above Beaudley. The east part 
of the bridge at Beaudley and the left Ripe of Severne 
be in Worcestershire ; but many say and hould that the 
west end of the Bridge and the right Ripe of Severne, 
within the towne of Beaudley, be in Schropshire, & 
Wyre Forrest in Schropshire, going to the parke at Tet- 

" ' The Towne selfe of Beaudley is sett on the side of 
an Hill, soe comely, a man cannot wish to see a Towne 
better. It riseth from the Severne banke by East upon 
the hill by West, soe that a man standing upon a hill 
trans pontem by East may discerne almost every house 
in the towne, and at the rising of the sunne from East 
the whole Towne glittereth (being all of newe Build- 
ing), as it were of gould. There be but 3 streets 
memorable in the Towne. One from North to South 



all along Severne banke. The second is in the market 
place, a fayre, large thing and well builded. The third 
runneth from North to South on the Hill syde, as the 
first doth in the Valley of Severne. The Parish Church 
standeth a mile lower at Ripley (Ribbesford in mar- 
gin), ut aqua defluit ripa dextra. By the distance of 
the Paroch Church I gather that Beaudley is but a very 
newe Towne. There was a privilege of Sanctuary given 
to this Towne that now is abrogated. ' 

' ' This description applies to the present site of the 
town, and no mention is made of the old part on the 
Wyre hill. 

' ' Under the Tudors the prosperity of Bewdley was 
in full tide. Henry VII. enlarged Ticknell House and 
made it into a palace for Arthur, Prince of Wales, who 
there resided and held his court. There, too, he was 
married to Catherine of Aragon. Henry VIII. granted 
three charters to this town, and sent his daughters, the 
Princesses Mary and Elizabeth, to reside in it. The 
many distinguished persons who were constantly 
coming to the town, attended by large retinues, would 
give increased employment to the inhabitants. To pre- 
vent disputes a special law was made to regulate the 
prices to be charged by the innkeepers (1528). 

" Manufactures of various kinds were started in the 
time of the Tudors, and flourished. The chief of these 
was cap-making, which at one time afforded employ- 
ment to probably one thousand people in Bewdley. 

"In the time of Elizabeth there were twelve tan- 
yards in Bewdley, and tanners have been among its 
greatest benefactors. The neighboring forests supply 
abundance of oak bark, and there is no apparent reason 
why this industry should have fallen off. The market 
has dwindled by degrees, and instead of thirty-two 
butchers holding stalls in the shambles there are now 
only two. 


"We have seen that as early as 141 2 the men of 
Bewdley had become bold watermen and owned large 
barges or trows. Latterly a great part of the carrying 
trade, both by land and water, came into their hands, 
and they had the best boats and best crews on the river. 
Merchants from Bristol, then the first seaport in the 
kingdom, established depots for their goods in Bewdley 
and Wribbenhall. Large storehouses were built and 
the wares were conveyed by long trains of pack-horses 
to the inland towns, and returned, bringing Manchester, 
Sheffield and other goods to be shipped down the Sev- 
ern to the seaports and West of England. Many old 
houses here have extensive buildings in the rear, now 
almost disused. 

" In 1620 special mention is made of the ' women's 
seats ' in the church, showing that the division of the 
sexes is not a modern innovation. In 1632 long ser- 
mons were the fashion, and an hour-glass was set up, 
so that the preacher might know when to finish his dis- 
course. In 1642 the gunpowder was removed from the 
chapel into the court house ! The Civil War was, now 
beginning, and the Chapel Warden's accounts and Rib- 
besford registers contain many allusions to the stirring 

The foregoing account by Rev. Mr. Burton shows that 
the English home of our ancestors was a place of some 
prominence, the great bridge having been built prior to 
1539. The picture of it here shown is of the old struc- 
ture, and is taken from an illustration in Mr. Burton's 
" History of Bewdley." 




JOHN Wakeman (of New Haven, Connecticut) was 
*-* born in Bewdley, England, a borough, market 
town, and Chapelry, in the parish of Ribbesford, and 
Union of Kidderminster, locally in the town division of 
the hundred of Doddington, and in the Hundred-House 
and West divisions of the county of Worcester, fourteen 
miles northwest of Worcester. (See Lewis's "Topo- 
graphical Dictionary England," vol. I.) John Wake- 
man married Elizabeth Hopkins, daughter of William 
Hopkins, who married Helen Vickaris in Ribbesford 
church, October 30, 1609. 

Concerning the Vickaris family, the parish registers 
of Bewdley show: 

"Bap. 1575, Feb. 20, Robarte, the sonn of John 

"1596, Dec. 22, Richard, the father of John Vickreg, 
died of the age of 100 yeares and 1 yeare." 

No baptism recorded here of Helen. Robert in 16 14 
seems to have spelt the name Vicaris. 

Burton's "History of Bewdley," appendix p. vii., 
says: "1637. In this year Richard Vickris, merchant, 
and then chief Sheriffe of the citie of Bristol, gave a 
green Cushion of Plush to be used upon the pulpit in 
the Chappell of Bewdley," and also says that he was a 
native of Bewdley. The parish church of Ribbesford 
of which we give a picture, "is an ancient and curious 
structure, standing in a retired situation, surrounded 
by wooded heights. " In the Ribbesford parish regis- 
ters Mr. William Hopkins is spoken of as "The most 


eminent, wise and truly religious Magistrate of Bewd- 
ley, and at last, member of the long Parliament." 
Again, "William Hopkins, gent, a gracious and able 
Christian ; then Burgesse elected for Parliament for the 
borough of Bewdley. " He was buried with his wife in 
the chancel of Ribbesford church, outside and near the 
communion rail, where the chancel floor is raised a step 
above the rest of the church, not far from south wall of 
chancel on which the following tablet was placed. The 
tablet has only lately been removed to the west wall : 

" Here lie interred the bodies of 
William Hopkins, late of Bewdley, 
Gent: who deceased July 19, 1647. 
And Helena, his wife, who deceased 
Nov. 16, 1656, both in a good old age." 

" Ask you in these what virtues were 
Needless it is to write them here, 
Go ask the rich they know full well, 
Or ask the poor for they can tell." 
G. H. posuit. 

Wood (Athenas Oxoniensis), followed by Burton, 
praises highly George Hopkins (G. H. posuit), son of 
William, born at Bewdley, April 25, 1620, educated at 
the Grammar school, graduated at Oxford, then Rector 
of Evesham (where his son William was born, a cele- 
brated cleric and antiquarian, buried in Worcester 
cathedral). " He was very judicious, godly, modeste, 
peaceable, and upright. " He was brother to Elizabeth 
Hopkins who married John Wakeman. 

Bigland's "Gloucestershire" (introduction, p. ii. 
vol. i.), says: "Dr. William Hopkins, born at Eves- 
ham, August 28, 1647; his father was a clergyman, and 
his grandfather a gentleman of rank and fortune in 
Bewdley, for which town he was chosen member of 
Parliament, but died before he took his seat." 

The following extracts from the Chapel and Bridge- 
warden's accounts, of Bewdley, are of interest as 


referring to John Wakeman and his father-in-law 
William Hopkins:

PjUR first New England ancestor, John Wakeman, 
^-^ before coming here was a timberman (timber mer- 
chant) in Bewdley, England. This would be a position 
of much importance at that time (Charles I ) as the Park 
contained in 1612, 3,500 old trees. On Wyre Forest 
(Wyre Hill) were many square miles of oaks. These 
were being used up wholesale. The wood was wanted 
for making charcoal to smelt the ironstone brought on 
pack horses from the Clee Hill. The Furnace mill on 
Dowles Brook has still mounds of refuse ironstone. 
Michael Drayton in his " Polyolbion " about this time 
speaks of " Goodlie Wyre " as 

" Ashamed to behold 
Her straight and goodlie woods unto the furnace sold, 
And looking on herself by her decay doth see 
The miserie whereon her sister forests be." 

In later times coal took the place of charcoal for 
smelting iron, and Lancashire became important. 

In an old document by Edward Blount, endorsed a 
memorial of many benefactions to Bewdley Grammar 
school and to the poor of Bewdley, copied from the 
original of 1643. (The memorial was probably a large 
board with these particulars painted thereon.) 

" The Memorial of many good Benefactors names 
their gifts and benevolences to ye Free Grammar 
School of Bewdley by divers psons dec d - to yr gt praise 
and the encouraging of others to imitate the like charit- 
able good works. The said memorial being made in the 
year of our Lord God 1643, At the Costs and charges of

maintenance of the said Grammar School yearly. The

THE following data lately collected is inserted, as it 
contains some early English genealogy of our 
family as far back as the year 1070. To be strictly 
reliable, however, this data should be confirmed by 
wills or other record evidence : 

From Burke's "Landed Gentry" for 1852, vol. ii. 

PP- 1483-4- 

Family of Wakeman of The Craig (Monmouth) : 

John le Wake, Wyke, or Wakeman, according to the 
pedigrees preserved in the family, was living at the 
time of the Norman Conquest, and married the heiress 
and daughter of Malcolm de Vuseburne or Visberye, a 
king's thane, and settled at Ripon, in Yorkshire, the 
chief magistrate of which town was called the Wake- 
man, but whether the family took its name from the 
office or the office from the individual, is uncertain. 
The great-grandson of the first John was 

William Wakeman, who had lands in Oxfordshire, 
temp Richard I., and is mentioned in several records of 
that reign; he had issue a daughter, Celina, who gave 
lands in All Saints, Oxon, to the Priory of Stodley. 
Third in descent from Thomas, a younger brother of 
this William, was 

Sir Thomas Wakeman, who married Isabella, dau. of 
Sir George Hastings, and left issue, two sons, I, Robert, 
who married a dau. of James Allington, and left a son, 
I, Thomas, a monk, living in 1280,

George, through whom the line is continued. 

Seventh in descent from George Wakeman aforesaid, 
was William Wakeman, who was settled in Worcester- 
shire, and left issue two sons, John, of Drayton, in the 
parish of Chadsley Corbet, co. Worcester, with whom

mence and of whom hereafter, and William, a priest,

The statement as to the Bishop's arms is in- 
correct, for both in the Herald's College and in Bed- 
ford's " Blazonry of Episcopacy," it is controverted, 
showing that the Bishop '$> personal arms were Party per 
fesse indented, sable and argent, three doves rising

Bishop John Wakeman.

As to the arms of the See we find in Bedford's 
" Blazonry of Episcopacy," " Azure two keys in Sal tire 
Or" (Authority, " Hardy's Le Neuve "). Woodward's 
' ' Ecclesiastical Heraldry" says as to the Arms of the See, 
" Gloucester Azure two keys in Saltyre, wards in chief " 
(plate xxii. p. 3,) the Pauline Sword was added to the 
keys of St. Peter in early times but latterly dropped out 
of use as appears by some old carvings in the Cathedral. 
It is hoped that it may be restored to its place ere long. 
The original arms of the See are said to have been those 
of the old Earls of Gloucester (the Clare family). 

The above genealogical matter is inserted be- 
cause of its historic interest to our family, but we can- 
not consider ourselves descended from either the bishop, 
who was a celibate, nor from Sir Richard Wakeman, 
whose arms are our frontispiece. The theory of our 
descent from Roger Wakeman (seepages 10 and 11) is the 
only trace we have of our ancestry prior to Francis, of 
Bewdley. Yet there is probably not the slightest doubt 
of our descent from one of the brothers of the bishop or 
from one of his father's brothers. This would make 
Sir Thomas (before mentioned) our direct ancestor. 




SAMUEL WAKEMAN, son of Francis, of Bewdley, 
Worcestershire, England, came to New England in 
November, 1631, in the ship Lion, Captain Pierce, and 
settled in Roxbury, November 2, 1631, and was made 
freeman the seventh of August following, being one of 
the founders of the first church in Roxbury. 

He probably removed to Cambridge, and was repre- 
sentative at the May session, 1635, and removed with 
Governor Haynes, or rather, as his forerunner, to Hart- 
ford, in April, 1636. 

He was made constable and was engaged in adjusting 
the bounds of the first settlement of Windsor and 
Wethersfield. He was killed in the summer of 1641, 
with Captain Pierce at Providence in the Bahamas, as 
told by Winthrop, vol. ii., p. 43. His estate was, in 
December, 1645, settled on Nathaniel Willett, who had 
married his widow, Elizabeth, but he was to pay ^40 
to the son when twenty-one years of age, and ^20 to 
each of the three daughters on their arriving at the age 
of eighteen years. They were all young, for the church 
records of Roxbury inform us that he buried his only 
child at sea coming over, and his first born here by 
Elizabeth was Elizabeth, who married Joseph Arnold; 
Joanna married Francis Hacleton, and Grace married 
John Kelly. 

The Captain Pierce referred to above went with others 
to relieve English colonists in the Bahamas who were 
suffering from the cruelties of the Spaniards. 


(The above account is from Savage's Genealogical 
Dictionary of first settlers in New England, p. 387.) 

The following is from John Winthrop's " History of 
New England from 1630 to 1640": 

One Samuel Wakeman, a member of the church at 
Hartford, who was sent with goods to buy cotton, cast 
himself down by him (Captain Pierce) and presently a 
great shot took them both. Mr. Pierce died within an 
hour, the other (S. W.) having only his thighs tore, 
lived ten days. 

This Samuel Wakeman left one son, referred to 
above, whose name was Esbun or Ezbon. The follow- 
ing notice of him is from Savage's " Dictionary ": 

"Wakeman, or Wakman, Esbun or Isbun, Stratford 
among the freeman, 1669, son of Samuel at Hartford, 
had lived at New Haven 1653, married at Guilford, 
Hannah Jordan, but before 167 1, had purchased estate 
at Fairfield, Conn., where he died 1683, leaving only 
daughter, Abigail, who married Thomas Hill." 

There is one mention made of his name on the re- 
cords of New Haven Colony, 1653 to 1665, p. 391, where 
his name is spelled Esburne. 




JOHN WAKEMAN was an early member of the 
Colony of New Haven. The first time we find his 
name mentioned is in the list of Freemen "of the 
Courte of Newhaven," held June 4th, 1639. 

p.* There are seventy names on the list, the fortieth 
of which is " John Wakeman." 

17, 18. The next is an autograph signature to the 
articles of agreement for both church and state of the 
Colony of New Haven, which are in the language fol- 
lowing : 

" W hare as, there was a fundamental agreement made inagen- 
erall meeting of all the free planters of this towne, on the 4th day 
of the fowerth moneth called June that church members only 
shall be free Burgesses, and they only shall chose among them- 
selves magistrates and officers to h[ve] the power of transacting 
all publique ciuell affayres of this plantatio: of makeing and re- 
peli[ng] lawes, deviding inheritances, deciding of differences 
thatt may arise, and doeing all things and businesses of like 
nature. Itt was therefore ordered by all the said free planters 
thatt all those thatt hereafter should be received as planters into 
this plantatio should also submit to the said fundumentall agree- 
ment and testifie the same by subscribing their names vnder the 
names of the aforesaid planters as followeth." 

Here follows the names of the signers, of whom John 
Wakeman was one.

" Brother Wakeman and Brother Miles reported to the 
court that they had (as the court desired them) viewed 
the clay pits, way and fences adjoyninge, in reference 
to the difference betwixt Mr. Malbon and Mr. Caffinch, 
and found that the way to the clay pitts was to lye 
open, but the quarter that lay on the one side could not 
accomplish their part of the fence, and therefore haveing 
planted, were forced for safeguard of their corne to

the other quarter driving their cattle and sometimes 
leaveing*? oppen the rayles and sometimes breaking 
them, much damage hath been done by cattle and hoggs. 
Whereuppon the court determined that the quarter that 
should have fenced and did not, must bear the damadge, 
and those that have tresspassed in breaking and leaving 
open gates or rayles shall contribute, and desired the 
afforesaid committee to take some more paynes for the 
settling of it." 

185. "At a Generall Court held the 23rd of Febru- 
ary, 1645: 

186. ' ' It was ordered, that brother Wakeman and 
brother Gibbord shall goe with brother Brocket to se 
the lott belonging to Thomas Fugill at the West Rocks, 
measured and surveyed, and report to the court what 
distance it is from the Center and what quantity of land 
there is. " 

221. 222. "Att a Generall Court held at Newhaven, 
the 16th of March, 1645:" 

It having been found by a survey made that " Thomas 
Fugill " had " tauen in by fencing aboue, tweDty-eight 
acres of cleare land, and twenty-four acres of wooddy 
and hilly land, and though he vnderstood that some of 
the church and probably some of the towne were offend- 
ed at this, his vnjust course, yet in some yeares he 
had neither procured a survey nor advised with the 
Court about it, though from time to time, he had suffi- 
cient opportunitie. This being considered, was found 
and judged a publique unrighteousness, and so a pub- 
lique offence and scandall, wch may not pass without 
due censure. It was remembered that when Thomas 
Robinson, one that is noe planter, for removing some 
land marks in an unrighteous way for his present ad- 
vantage, in the grass then to be cutt, though he could 
not hold nor get the inheritance, had been lately fined 


40s. in court. Mr. Wakeman and Lieutenant Seeley 
were therefore desired to advise wth the magistrates 
and deputies whether the offence be not more proper 
for the court of Magistrates than for the Newhaven 
monthly court, and onn the towne's behalf they were 
ordered to prosecute accordinglie. 

But the court was further informed that besides the 
former vnrighteousness in the quantity of land, a small 
part lying within two miles, he had severall ways offen- 
ded and falsified orders ; in entering this order made 
November the 29th, 1640, the grant in the substance 
was this, that he should have his second division of the 
cleare ground by the west rocke, provided it were not 
within the two mile, nor granted to any other, and by 
sundry in court it was remembered that he was 
bounded and limitted within two rivers; butinhisbooke 
of noates when taken in court, he hath left out the two 
mile, hath added (or so much as he desires) of wch 
clause he can give noe satisfactory reason; itt was 
neither by him so propounded, nor was it any part of 
the court's order. And as whereas besides his booke of 
noates, before mentioned, he keeps two other bookes, 
whereof the latter is to be a faire and lasting recorde, 
besides the former materyall defects they differ from 
his booke of noates in other respects. In both of them 
that clause (if not granted to any other) is left out, and 
a clause is added in such manner and with such cir- 
cumstances as gives much offence. For Mr. Cheever's 
and Mr. Wakeman's heareinge of his vnrighteous in- 
closure, desired to see how the grant was penned. Mr. 
Cheevers read it in Mr. Wakeman's and Thomas Fugill's 
heareinge; he is assured and knoweth that at that time 
the order ended with these words, or as much of it as 
he desires. Mr. Wakeman conceiveth that clause 
(according to his propportion) , was not then in the booke, 
they both affirm that vpon that ground Mr. Cheevers 



tould Thomas Fugill that the order was unlimited and 
not easily transgressed and seemed to marvayle that 
men should speake of his takinge in too much lande, 
but added, you mean according ,to yor proportion. 
Thomas Fugill closed both that that was his meaninge, 
(yet said not it was soe entered or Avritten), and that 
men would be talkinge. Mr. Cheevers, when they were 
gon from Thomas Fugill's house, repeated the order to 
Mr Wakeman, and presently after wrott it downe 
according to wch he reported to Lieutenant Seely how 
it was entred, who confidently replyed that the entry 
soe made was a falce entry. This soon came vnto 
Thomas Fugill's knowledge, but when the booke came 
after to be viewed, the line affording room these words 
were added (according to his proportion), but with 
other pen and inke, a less character and crooked, as 
w th a trembling hand." 

' ' The booke vppon occasion being brought and left 
wth the governor, Mr. Cheevers observed and was 
offended at this alteration, and at a meetinge wth Thomas 
Fugill before the governor and elders, questioned him 
about it; Thomas beginninge to justifie himselfe, the 
governour, to prevent further rashnesse and sinfull ex- 
pressions, by way of caution, told him the booke was 
within and he had viewed it, and if he could judge of 
writing, these words were added and written after the 
former part of the order with other pen and incke, and 
wth a different character, notwithstanding wch, Thomas 
Fugill boldly replied, that if the governor would give it 
he would presently take oath they were written at one 
and the same time with the rest ; but the booke being 
brought out, the difference was so apparent that Thomas 
Fugill was forced to chang his expression and said he 
would take oath it was not written since Mr. Cheever 
saw and read the order ; herevpon his second book was 
sent for, out of wch this record was coppied, and therein 


also (the line affording roome), the same words 
seemed to be added, the difference in writinge (though 
not soe much as in the greate booke), was cleare and 
evident, wch miscarriadge of his gave offence to all 
present; but this second booke being by the governour 
and elders since viewed, they severally, but each of 
them strongly, apprehended that a pen and blacker 
incke hath bin drawn over it, their being now either 
none, or a difference so small, as is scarcely discernible, 
yet Thomas Fugill being questioned againe and againe, 
denieth it." 

" Thomas Fugill was reprimanded for his falce re- 
cords and for his profanity in offering to make oath to 
the correctness of his records, and by the court he was 
presently put out of his office of secretrie for this plan- 

John Wakeman was chosen Deputy for the " Jurisdis- 
diction court," which was held April, 1646. 

" It was desired that a view might be made of the 
land behind Mr. Wakeman 's and Mr. Goodyeare's quar- 
ters in the reare of their divizions. Alsoe what land 
lyeth behind the Yorkshire quarter for ye small lotts." 

John Wakeman lived on the corner of what are now 
Chapel and York streets, New Haven, having bought 
the house and land originally assigned to Widow Bald- 
win, who went to Milford. 

" At a Court holden April 7th, 1646: 

" Brother Wakeman and Brother Seeley were desired

When ' viewers ' were chosen for the several quarters. 
For Mr. Wakeman's quarter, Mr. Wakeman and

"At a Genl Court held at Newhaven 5th July, 1647, 
Mr. Wakeman 'and eight others were appointed ' as a 
Committee vnto whom all questions concerning the 
sheepe businese is reffered. At the same Court a re- 
port was given by Bro. Wakeman and Bro. Anthony 
Thompson to issue, and their thought beinge that it 
will be best, as they conceive, answer all the quarter if

clare against the company of merchants of Newhaven, 
viz'd. Mr. Theophilus Eaton, now governor, Mr. Stephen 
Goodyeare, Mr. Richard Malbon, Mr. Thomas Gregson. 
In this suit Mr. Wakeman acted a prominent part. In 
his testimony, Lawrence Warde saith that the feoffees, 
viz'd., Mr. Wakeman, Mr. Atwater, Mr. Crane and 
Goodman Myles, can saye something in this matter. 

' ' Mr. Wakeman saith for the bargaine he can saye 
nothing, but a little before Mr. Gregson went some 
mottion was made to them the said feofees to paye, w ch 
was very strange to them ; and therevpon they mett at 
the governor's wth the merchants. Goodman Warde 
was there and aleaged his want of paye. The mer- 
chants conceived it belonged to the feoffees to paye, but 
they thought it belonged to the rigging and could not 
consent to paye anything towards them. In that meet- 
ing many speeches passed betwixt Mr Lamberton and 
Goodman Warde, and as the said Mr. Wakeman re- 
membereth, Goodman Warde said Mr. Lamberton and 
Mr. Gregson acted with hime, and minded Mr. Gregson 
of that speech with him in Mr. Davenport's streette. 
Mr. Gregson seemed not to remember it thoughe hee 
denied it not, but said withall, that he did it as a service 
to ye feoffees. These feoffees denyed yt. Therevpon 
Mr. Gregson seemed somewhat moved, and said to the 
gouerner, 'if they will not paye, then I shall leave my 
share, but then I will have them in my or our custody 
and will be payde before they pass.' " 


"At a General Court the 18th of October, 1647, John 
Wakeman was chosen ' Deputy to the generall courte,' 
and also to ' audite the treasurer's account for the year 

"The Gouvernor acquainted the Courte that vpon 
notice of the generall courte's order to staye the Duch 
shipp w ch was seized and caryed out of this harboure by 
the Duch, the Duch gouverner hath sent a letter and a 
protest against Newhaven for it, professing he will have 
controversie only with Newhaven, and requires us to 
send the three prisoners and the Duch Marchants and 
their goods to them to the Mannatoes, with some threat- 
ening speeches if we doe not. 

As there was danger of war with Dutch settlers on 
Manhattan Island, now New York, "the governor 
therefore desires the courte to consider what shall be 
done." The matter was duly considered, and, "the 
things being many, the courte agreed that a committee 
be chosen to consider and proceed therein as they see 
cause, and by the generall consent and vote, the pticu- 
lar courte for Newhaven, calling to them Mr. Evance, 
Mr. Wakeman and Lieutenant Seeley, had full power 
granted to them to consult, consider and conclude, 
bothe concerning, receiving and protecting the Duch- 
men wth all matters aboute fortification, the place and 
manner, wth all other things thereto belonging." 

In a foot note on page 354 of the Records from which 
these facts are gathered, we are informed that the 
" shipp " above mentioned was named the St. Beninico, 
which the Dutch, claiming to be a smuggler, by a 
stratagem, seized and cut out of the harbor on a 
Sunday and carried to New Amsterdam, where the ves- 
sel and cargo were confiscated. 

" Att a Generall Courte the 23rd of March, 1647, 

" Mr. Robert Newman propounded to the courte, that 
ther quat r and the next wher Mr. Ceffinch lives, desires 


that they might have on third pt of the r land within the 
two myle exchanged for so much of heither end of the 
playnes, because that on the hill is so stoney they can- 
not plant it and yett is better for pasture than ye 
plaine. The courte considered of it and chose Mr. 
Malbon, Mr. Wakeman, Mr. Crane and Lieutenant 
Seeley as a committee to view and consider of what 
they propound and howe it may stand with the towne's 
conveniency or inconveniency and to make a report 
back to ye courte."

to issue the matter in difference betwixt him and Mr. 
Davenport butt could gitt none. He was asked who he 
spake with to doe it, he named Mr. Wakeman, Mr. 
Tuttill & Richard Milles. The court thought they were 
fitt men & sent for Mr. Wakeman to desire him to take 
this upon him, but he was not at home. Richard Milles 
being in court declared himself vnwilling, but the court 
agreed that they must chuse some to doe it, and ap- 
pointed Mr. Wakeman & Richard Milles, two w ch Henry 
Bishop chose himself, and Mr. Crane & Francis New- 
man chosen by Mr. Davenport. And the court ordered 
that these foure men viz d Mr. Wakeman, Mr. Crane, 
Richard Milles, & Francis Newman, doe take the case 
into their hands and consider of it, and if they can to the 
satisfaction of Mr. Davenport and Henry Bishop to 
issue it, if not then to inform themselves so fully that 
they maye be able to informe ye courte how it stands, 
that they maye have what light they can, further to 
proceede. " 

Mr. Davenport owned a farm which was worked by 
Henry Bishop. The difficulty grew out of this relation. 

" At a Generall Court the 9th of October, 1648. 


" The Governor propounded to ye court to know what 
c5rse they would take to prevent the damadge that is 
done in corne and meddowes, for he heares great com- 
plaints; there are orders in force, but wheither was not 
necessarie to make some stricter order aboute swine 
and fences, or that some other course might be taken 
that these damadges might be prevented, and wheither 
thay will debate the matter now or chuse a committee 
to prepare the matter against another court, but any 
one might now propound what way he thinks of, that if 
they chuse a committee they maye consider it. The 
court agreed and voted to chuse a committee to consider 
and prepare the matter against another court." 

Mr. John Wakeman and eighteen others were chosen 
to act as such committee. 

" At a Generall Court the 3d day of January, 1648. 

" It is ordered that the court with Mr. Evance & Mr. 
Wakeman audit the treasurer's acc s for ye yeare s past. ''

consider of some other waye of rateing men then is set- 
tled by lands, for divers men w ch had good estates at 
first and land answerable, whose estates are sunke and 
they not able to pay as they did, & divers prsons whoe 
had land for their heads, whose estates are smalle, yet 
paye great rates, and others whose estates are increased 
haveing but little land paye but a small matter to 
publique charges. Divers others in the court concurred 
with him, whereupon the court chose a committee to 
consider of it and prepare for another court. The com- 
mittee are the pticular court (calling in the elders for 
any help or light they want), and one out of each quar- 
ter of the towne." 

Mr. Wakeman was the third of ten on said com- 

" At a Generall Courte the 25th of June, 1649. 


" It was propounded that the oxe pasture might be 
fenced at the towne's charge, and whether it would not 
be profitable to ye towne that it should be planted three 
or 4 yeares & after iaid again for an oxe pasture, and it 
was referred to the consideration of ye committee chosen 
for rates the ioth of March, 1648 (the pticular court ex- 
cepted), viz'd Mr. Gilbert, Mr. Wakeman and others, 
& yt they inform ye court what they judge of it." 

"At a Generall Court for Newhaven the 29th of 
Sept., 1649. 

' ' It was propounded and debated that some course 
might be taken that fences might be made better, that 
swine might goe abroade, that some fields might be 
onely for planting Indian corne, and not plant Indian 
and English together ; that ye fence might be brought 
to a less quantity that men might ye better maintain 
them. The court considered of the things and thought 
the)^ were weightie and of great concernment to the 
towne, therefore ordered to chose a comittee to consider 
and debate these things privately and prepare it against 
another court. The comitee chosen is the pticular 
court, and one at each quarter viz'd Mr. Tuttill 'and 
others,' of whom Mr. Wakeman was one." 

The committee met twice for consultation, made ex- 
tensive inquiries as to "how rates are carried on in 
other places," and made their report to the "Generall 
Court the 15th October, 1649." 

Radical modifications of the mode of "rating" were 
made by this court, and to finish the work, ' ' the court 
chose a comitee w ch are hereafter mentioned whoe are 
to meete on the 6th day next at 4 o'clocke in ye after- 
noone to consider and draw up ye severall rate w ch they 
thinke every man shoulde paye and then to present it to 
ye gouernor and magistrats whoe are to consider of it, 
and if they finde it just, pass it, but if neede be, vpon 
any man's just complainte, they have power to releive 


' ' The comitee chosen for this work of rateing are two 
men out of each quarter, viz'd, Mr. Tuttill " and nine- 
teen others, of whom Mr. Wakeman was one. 

The last item shows that the number of " quarters " 
in the original plan of " Newhaven " was ten. 

" Mr. John Wakeman is chosen treasurer." 

"At a General Court held at New Haven for the 
Jurisdiction, the 30th day of May, 1655, Mr. John 
Wakeman is chosen Deputie for Newhaven." 

It waz propounded to know whether Powgassett is 
not in this jurisdiction, but Mr. Wakeman, one of the 
owners, and at this present a deputie for Newhaven, de- 
sired a little time of respite before he gives answer. 

John Wakeman chosen "Deputie" October the 
19th, 1655. 

At a General Court of Elections, held at Newhaven 
for the jurisdiction, the 28th of May, 1656. 

Mr. John Wakeman chosen "Treasurer," and was 
also a " Deputy." 

At this court, "John Frost, servant to Mr. Gibbard, 
being called and examined aboute the burning his mas- 
ter's house & etc." confessed his guilt, and after due 
consideration, the court desiring to be very lenient, 
"considering he is young " (aboute fourteene yeares of 
age), and also somewhat childish in his way, agreed to 
spare his life (though the offence be exceedingly 
haynious and aggravated wth many circumstances), but 
that the following sentence should be executed upon 
him, viz. : " That the said John Frost should be a ser- 
vant for one and twenty yeares from this time, five or 
six of which yeares belongs properly to Mr. Gibbard, 
being a remainder of ye time of service to him due vpon 
a former agreement, and for the other time, fifteene or 
sixteene yeares be it more or less, the profitt thereof 
shall be divided betwixt Mr. Gibbord and Mr. Wake- 
man (vpon whom the loss fell) in due proportion when 


their several losses are made known ; that he shall be 
seuerely whipped with rods iitt for that purpose ; that 
he weare a halter about his necke and a small light lock 
vpon his legg, so as they may be seene ; that he stand 
in the pillory such a space of time as the magistrates 
shall thinke fitt, and if he shall goe out of y e jurisdic- 
tion with-out leave, he shall be lyable to be questioned 
for his life again, w ch sentence was by gen. court or- 
dered to be published by the magistretes of Newhaven 
the next trayneing day, w ch will be y e 9th of June, and 
then also, as the case requireth, to be executed " 

The neighbors being afraid that if this boy was held 
to service by Mr. Gibbord he would burn their build- 
ings, and as his "wearing a lock on his legg would 
make his services of less value to his master." " The 
court told Mr. Gibbard that they could not force any 
man to take him, but if he cannot imploy him himselfe 
to satisfaction, he may treate with any other, as Mr. 
Wakeman, the Marshall or Jno. Cooper, aboute the iron 
worke, and if he can agree with any of them to satis- 
faction, the courte will be content, but if no comfort- 
able closeing can be so as he may stay here, but that in 
the issue he must be sent away, and it may be back to 
England to his father, then the courte of Magistrates 
must meete to consider of some further punishment to 
be inflicted, for example and terror to others, that none 
may be imboldened to take such courses, and if the lock 
prove inconvenient and a hindrance to his laborer, it is 
left to the court at Newhaven to alter that part as they 
shall see cause." 

" At a Court of Magistrates held in Newhaven 26th, 
12th rro: 1656." 

"John Tompson entered an action against the estate 
of Mr. Jno. Roberts which is in the hand of Mr. Wake- 
man for the property comprising said estate to be paid 
over to his, Tompson's wife, claiming that Roberts was 


engaged to be married to her some 4 yeares previously, 
when he promised if he never returned from England 
for which he then sailed, that she should have his prop- 
erty." In that trial " Anthony Elcott also vpon oath 
affirmeth, that he heard Mr. Roberts say both at water 
side and aboard the vessel when he went away that if 
he proved inconstant, or whether he lived or dyed, he 
gave that he had here to Ann Vicars, and she might 
goe to them (meaning Mr. Wakeman & Mr. Ling, whom 
he intrusted with his estate) and take what she

Mr. Wakeman claimed that Mr. Ling- was dead, that 
there was none of Mr. Roberts' estate in his hands, and 
that it had been agreed that " Mr. Goodyeare " should 
pay this claim 

" The court having heard the case thns p r sented both 
plant' & defend 1 declared that the sentence of New- 
haven court, wch Mr. Wakeman heard and owred, 
should have been an obligation vnto him to see the 
estate forthcoming for the payment of the debt de- 
manded, who had yt sole power of that estate devolved 
vpon upon him, and did the therefore order yt Mr. 
Wakeman shall pay to Joseph Alsupp ^20 for the use 
of Robert Grey of Salem, but the damages demanded

Mr. John Wakeman and others were "allowed and 
established to be commissioners " on the estate of ''Mr. 
Stephen Goodyeare, merchant, late deputy gouernor & 
planter in New England," who died in London "in the 
yeare 1658." "They were to give in iust account to 
the court of magistrates at New Haven of whatsoever

The following evidence is presented to support the 
theory that the two burial stones now standing in the

rear of the Center Church, New Haven, marked 
E. W., 1658, 1657/8, are those of Elizabeth Wakeman, 

7wt? feed wide* k higk>, Serine thick 
£Ui& darAjbones Headftone 


the wife of Mr. John Wakeman. Our reasons for be- 
lieving this are 1st, that she was the daughter of Mr. 
William Hopkins, of Bewdley, England, " a gentleman 
of rank and fortune," and there is no record of any one 
else whose name has the same initials as dying there 


within five years of 1658, the date on the stones. Some 
have presumed them to be erected to Edward Wiggles- 
worth, who died in 1653; but this is hardly probable, 
as his estate was only ^400, and he left a wife and chil- 
dren, who would be liable not to reduce their small in- 
heritance by purchasing two burial stones in times 
when they were very expensive. Nor do we find that 
Mr. Wigglesworth had occupied such position of fame 
or renown as to at all warrant the surmise that his 
fellow citizens would expend their hard won shekels 
on burial stones for him ; 2d, Mrs. Elizabeth Wakeman 
was given a seat in the church in February, 1656, but 
was not mentioned in the next allotment of seats. 
Further, we find in the Colonial records the following 
that goes to show or indicate that Mrs. Wakeman had 
died prior to 1659. 

From general court, held April 1, 1661, Mr. Wake- 
man was nominated at the court of election for a magis- 
trate, after which Mr. Wakeman declared that he 
thought the unsettled condition he stood in would have 
spoken sufficiently to have prevented any such action 
concerning him. When the question being put to him, 
whether he did not intend to stay amongst us, to which 
he answered that he was not resolved whether to go or 
stay, rather than he would accept of the place he would 
remove. They had therefore done nothing in what 
they had done. Therefore it was safe to nominate some 
other. It was propounded that another might be nomi- 
nated, which by lot was so determined. 

Mr. Wakeman 's will was executed April 4, 1660, and 
in it he makes no mention of his wife. Now, as it is 
hardly presumable that a man in his position would 
have failed to have mentioned his wife in his will had 
she been living, we consider she must have died be- 
tween 1656 and 1660. 

A theory has been advanced that these stones were 


not erected to the memory of a person of very much 
prominence. Then why were two stones erected and 
elegantly lettered, one a headstone and the other a foot- 
stone, and this in times when money was scarce, and 
when no other stones were set up? 

Mr Wakeman's children were well married prior to 
his will, his son marrying a daughter of Deputy Gov- 
ernor Goodyear, one daughter marrying Lieut. -Col. 
John Talcott, of Hartford, and the other married Sam- 
uel Kitchell, of Newark. With his children all well 
provided for, it was natural that a man of Mr. Wake- 
man's position and means should mark the grave of his 
wife, who was of a family of position and fortune.

The original will of Mr. Wakeman is on file in the 
probate office in Hartford, and is as follows: 

I, John Wakeman of New Haven being weake in body, but of 
sound vnderstanding and memory, in expectation of my great 
change doe make this my last will and testament. First, I corn- 
end my soule into the hands of my Lord Jesus Christ my re- 
deemer, trusting to be saved by his merits and intercession, and 
my body to be buried at the discretion of my executors and 
friends, in hope of a joyfull resurection; testifying my thankfull- 
ness for the free manifestation of his grace to me in Christ, and 
for the liberty and fellowship vouchsafed me with his people in 
his ordinances in a Congregational way, which I take to be 


the way of Christ, orderly walked in according to his rules, but I 
doe testify against absolute independency of churches, and per- 
fection of any in light or actings, and against compulsion of con- 
science to concur with the church without inward satisfaction to 
conscience, and persecuting such as discent vpon this grownde, 
which, I take to be an abuse of the power given for edification by 
Christ who is only Lord of the conscience. 

As for my outward estate and worldly goods that God nath 
given me which I shall leave, my iust debts and funerall charges 
being satisfied, my will is thus: First, I give vnto my daughter 
Helena, wife to John Talcott of Hartford, twenty pounds to be 
wholly at her own disposal, and to her husband, my son in law 
Talcott, fiue pounds, and my best beaver hatt and band, and to 
ech of theyre three children fiue pounds apiece, namely vnto 
John, Elizabeth and Samuel, all to be payed within six months 
after my decease. 

It. I give vnto my son Samuel Wakeman's two sons, namely 
Samuell and John, ten pounds apiece. 

It. I give vnto my daughter Kitchells daughter Elizabeth 
ten pounds. 

Item. I give vnto my brother in law Adam Nicholls of Hart- 
ford my cloath cloake and the suite of the same which was my 
cousin John Walker's, and my grey hatt, and I give vnto his 
wife, my sister Anna Nicholls, ten pounds to be wholly at her 
own disposing, and to theyr four children twenty shillings apiece, 
namely, John, Hannah, Sarah, and Ebenezer, all which is my 
will should be paid to them wthin six moneths after my decease. 

It. I give vnto Hanna Cheevers fiue pounds, to be set apart 
and improued for her at the end of one yeare after my decease as 
my ouerseers shall see meete vntill shee come to eighteene yeers of 
age (which is the tyme agreed vpon for her continuance wth me 
or mine), or till the tyme of her marriage, prouided shee marry 
wth the consent of my executors and ouerseers, or wth the consent 
of any two of them. 

It. I giue to my servant Thomas Huxley my short gun with a 
rest, and my hanger which he vseth to traine with, vpon his good 
behauiour, that is if he shall carry himselfe honestly and faith- 
fully in his place and seruice to the satisfaction of my executors 
and ouerseers, or with the approbation of any two of them, 

Item. All the rest of my estate, goods, lands and debts, what- 
souer, I giue and bequeath to my son Samuel Wakeman. and to 
my son in law and daughter Samuel and Elizabeth Kitchell as 
followeth, that is when all my debts and legasyes are discharged

ferently, and at the prises comon in this jurisdiction) : my will is 
that my son Samuel Wakeman shall have two third parts of that 
my whole estate that remaineth, and my son and daughter 
Kitchell the other third part equally betwixt them, and my will is 
that my daughter Elizabeth Kitchell shall have that part of hers 
wholly at her owne disposing. And I doe make and appoint my 
son Samuel Wakeman and my son in law Samuel Kitchell to be 
joyntly executors of this my last will and testament. Alsoe I doe 
intreate my beloved friends and bretheren, Henry Glouer and 
James Bishop, to be ouerseers of this my will, and for theyr paines 
herein I give vnto ech of them ten shillings. And I further de- 
sire my deare and louing sisters, my sister Davis and sister 
Glouer to assist my executors and ouerseers with theyr counsell 
and help in prizing, diuiding and disposing things equally to 
mutual satisfaction, according to the true intent of this my will, 
which I subscribe with my hand this 18th day of 4th month, 1660.

Mr. John Wakeman was deacon of the first church in 
New Haven. 

The first mention of Samuel Wakeman, son of John, 
in N. H. Colony Records, is among those who took 
"oath of fidellitie ye 7th, 2nd mo., 1657." Samuel 
Wakeman is the third on the list. 

The second is where he appears as a creditor to the 
estate of Stephen Goodyeare, already noted. 

"At a Gene 1 Court held at New Haven, for the 
Jurisdiction, the 28th of May, 1662. 

"Mr. Samuel Wakeman desired to ppound some- 
thing to y e court about some monies stopt by ye 


jurisdiction treasurer which was due to his father from 
ye jurisdiction, first concerning fiue pound eight shill- 
ings that was brought to account after the auditt, the 
matter appearing cleare onely forgotten by Mr. Wake- 
man then the court did allow it. 2, Concerning the 
wampum giuen in as jurisdiction stocke to y e deputies 
for sixty-foure pounds, and they finding some at six a 
penny and some at eight, the p r sent treasurer Roger 
Ailing would not soe accept without the allowance of 
this court, Leiftennt Bell, Mr. Robt. Kitchell & John 
Cooper testified y* w n they audited Mr. Wakeman's ac- 
counts, then, Mr. Wakeman told y m y* this wampum 
was soe received, viz., some at six a penny and some at 
eight, thervpon this Court allowed it soe to be received 
(as it was writ vpon) by ye treasurer, the jurisdiction 
bearing the losse. 3, Concerning twenty shillings 
wanting in tale in a parcell of wampum y t was sent to 
y e Dutch by Mr. Hodshon, Mr. Samuel Kitchell testi- 
fied that it was ten pounds sent in a baskett by his fa- 
ther Wakeman to be putt off, and he further s d y t his 
father received it for ten pound, but coming backe 
upon the tale of it to Roger Ailing there was but nine 
pound; this was alsoe granted to be allowed them. 
4, Concerning y e difference between his father's ac- 
counts and y e comision's conclusion in y e yeare 1660 of 
about twenty pound in wampum, how to reconcile them 
they could not yet find, but for clearing it produced a 
writing vnder the hand of Mr. Allen, which was read, 
but the thing not appearing cleare to this court left it 
to ye court at Newhaven to view Mr. Wakeman's booke 
& issue the business, betwixt them, and therein rest 
satisfied." "November 5th. At a Genell Court held 
at Newhaven for y e Jurisdiction, 1662. John Herri- 
man ppounded about jQi 17s. 2d. which was not 
brought to account with Mr. Wakeman, he desired it 
might be allowed him. He p r senting his accounts as 


cleare that it was due, the court thought it should be 
allowed him. "

"Thomas Prince says of Samuel Torrey, I suppose 
he was admitted into Harvard College about 1650, and 
should, according to the preceding custom, have taken 
his first degree in three years. But the Corporation 
making a Law that the Scholars should study at Col- 
lege four years before they commenced Bachelors in 
Arts, several Scholars, tho' they were accounted as 
good as any before them; and I suppose of different 
classes, went off, and never took any Degree at all. 
There were at least Five of them, who after made a 
very shining Figure in New England, viz. : Gov. 
Josiah Winslow, the Rev. Mr. Samuel Torrey, the Rev. 
Mr. Ichabod Wiswall, of Duxbury, agent for the Ply- 
mouth Colony at the Court of England upon the Revo- 
lution; the Rev. Mr. Samuel Wakeman, of Fairfield; 
and the Rev. Mr. Brinsmead of Marlborough; who 
would all have been a great honor to our Harvard

' ' Wakeman. Samuel, Fairfield, son of John, was bred 
at Harvard, but left college in 1655, upon a dissatisfac- 
tion about an hardship which they (seventeen of the 
school) thought put upon them in making them lose a 
good part of a year of the time whereupon they claimed 
their degree. He married 29 Oct., 1656, Hannah, 
daughter of Stephen Goodyeare at New Haven. They 
had Samuel, born Oct. 12 following, removed to Fair- 
field and was ordained 30th September, 1665, was 
much esteemed, and died 8th Mar., 1692. 

' ' His will bears the same date, and his inventory is 


of 8th Apr. following. He names widow Hannah, 
children Samuel, who was dead 1691, John, Joseph, and 
Jabez. He had also Ebenezer, whose estate was 
divided among the the three brothers and three 
brothers in law : Albert Denny, Abraham Howell, and 
Nicholas Clegstone."

Eccls. 12:1 — " Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy 
youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, 
when thou shalt say I have no pleasure in them." 

Sound Repentance the Right Way to escape deserved 

Rulne : 

A Solid and awakening Discourse, Exhorting the People of God 
to comply with his Counsel, by a hearty practical turning from 
Sin to himself and his service thereby to prevent their being 
made desolate by his departing from them. 
As it was delivered in a 

Preached at Hartford on Connecticut in New England, May 
14th. Being the day of Election there. By Mr. Samuel Wake- 
man, Pastor of the Church of Christ in Fairfield. 

Ezek, 18:3 — As I live, saith the Lord God, ye shall not have 
occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. 

Rev. 2:5 — Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen and 
repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee 
quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place except 
thou repent. 

Zach. 1:3 — Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord 
of Hosts- Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of Hosts, and I will 
turn unto you saith the Lord of Hosts. 

Boston in New England. 
Printed by Samuel Green, Anno Dom,, 1685. 


The ensuing discourse shews the great danger of a Peoples 
departing from God by sin, it will cause God to depart from them, 
as here we find threatned. The way to escape this Judgment, is 
to be instructed Be tkou instructed lest. This word of commina- 
tion was directed and spoken first at Jerusalem, but reacheth to 
us now in N. E., who stand in like circumstances before the Lord, 
as Jerusalem then did. A parallel People with them, both in 
respect of privilege and provocation Profession, and Prevarica- 
tion. They were highly favored of God, so have we been; They 
deeply revolted from God, so have we done, That faithful City 
became an Harlot; and we in this Land are greatly degenerate. 


New England Israel was once Holiness unto the Lord: What 
are we now ? Whence it follows that (as persons concerned) what 
was spoken to them; we must take to ourselves. If the Lord by 
the Prophet thus instruct and threaten Jerusalem he doth the 
same to us. What then is our duty ? be instructed, reformed 
refitted, that we may yet be spared, and God's presence among 
us continued, O for that Reformation the Lord hath so long 
lookt for hath so often been attempted, and so much talked of, 
but not yet attained ! What is it more than meer talk ? Where 
is the thing ? Is not all we have done but as the morning cloud 
and early dew that goeth away, passeth soon out of sight and 
vanisheth into nothing ? O then be instructed See and consider 
the great and many sins so rife and common among us ; Sigh, 
mourn, and lament over them our own and others sins, by all 
which God is discharging dishonoured ; and then every one to fall 
to our proper work of repenting, returning, reforming with all 
speed and seriousness and that the Judgment threatned may not 
be executed upon us by God's departure from us: Let us Labour 
with all our might, and by all means to keep God with us, to hold 
him and not let him go ; for if we let God go, we are not our own 
friends, nor will it appear that we counted God our best friend, 
for such we will hug and hold fast, and if possibly we can, will 
keep them with us: How loth were they to part with their be- 
loved Paul ? O blessed Paul, they desire much his company and 
presence ; but what is the presence of Paul, though an Apostle, 
to the presence of God himself with his People ? And would we 
then keep God among us ? If so, 

i, Put a due price upon Divine Presence, as Moses did, Exod 
33> 2, 3, 15, The presence of an Angel will not satisfie him: If 
God himself will not go with his People, what can an Angel do 
for them ? 

2. Plead hard for flic continuance of God's preference with 
us as Moses there, and so the Prophet Jer, 14, 8, 9. Let us shew 
how we value, and esteem of our God, even above all creature 
comforts in Heaven or Earth, Psal. 53, 25, Say, Lord, what are 
all these ? They may go their way so thou wilt stay with us, we 
can do well enough without them, but not without thee. 

3. Put away that which would drive God from us, as they 
did and retained his presence, Judg. 10, 10, 15, and compassion 
also: true repentance, and our returning to God, is the best plea, 
we can make for God's returning unto us, and continuing with us. 
Consider what may encourage, and what should quicken us to - 
labour to keep God with us. 


1. To encourage us, the thing is possible, God may be pre- 
vailed with if due means be used. The Judgement threatned is 
not yet executed, nor hath the Lord cast us out of his presence as 
yet 2 King, 13, 23, yet it/i midst of us, Jer. 14, 9. 

God is pleased to speak before he smite; yea to speak and 
warn us, that he may not smite us; but being penitent, and 
reformed we may be spared, 3. God is inclined to ?nercy, willing 
to be reconciled to sinners, and easily intreated by them, when 
they sincerely turn unto him. The Son Came, the Father ran, 
Luke 15, 20. Again, 4. This Commi?iation is u?ider condition 
(not absolute) that if we repent God will repent; if we return 
God will return as the Promise runs — Zech. i, 3. This should en- 

2. What should quicken us ? Consider, as r. If we do not re- 
pent, and do not what we do in good earnest, to do to purpose, 
we shall find God in good earnest in doing as he hath thoicght 
and threatned against us — Zech. 8, 14. And 2. Consider what 
it is for God to depart from us. When God goes, all goes, he 
being All. 

1. All God goes, his hearing ear, his pitying eye, his shining 
Face and Countenance, his helping Hand, his Loving Heart, ten- 
der Affection, yerning Bowels, his glorious Attributes of power, 
mercy, goodness, which were all for us are now gone from us. 
When God's Soul, which is Himself, whole God or God thus 
wholly departs from a People. 2. All good goes, for if God leave 
us, what good can he leave with us ? Doth not his goodness in- 
fluence all our good things, and make them such unto us ? What 
were Health, Wealth, Friends, all the world to us, if God be not 
with us ? Yea, what were Heaven itself if God were not there ? 
3. When God goes all evil comes, as Deut. 31, 16, 18. And no 
other can be expected indeed, but when the Sun sets dark night 
will ensue. Take away the light and nothing but darkness re- 
mains. The absence of all good (which is in God only) necessi- 
tates succeeding evil, and is an inlet unto it. 4. Whatever evils 
befall us when God is departed from us will be turned ztpon us 
as the fruit of our own wayes : and what we have procured 
to ourselves, Prov. 1, 31, Jer. 2. 17. And so they laid the 
pleasant land desolate, Zech. 3, 14. A great aggravation of 
any affliction when self sought or brought upon ourselves by our 
own default, as Joab tells David, 2 Sam. 19, 17. If by his so carry- 
ing himself, he drew upon himself so great a mischief and misery, 
as to cause his Associates, Souldiers and helpers to withdraw 
from him: // will be worse unto thee, saith he, than all the 


evils that ever befel thee from thy youth until now, to be left 
alone that night destitute of a Guard about him, when danger 
surrounded him and this through his own default, would make it a 
dark and a dismal night indeed unto David; how much more 
when by our sinful folly we provoke God to depart from us ; what 
height of folly is this, and what depth of misery and distress doth 
it bring poor sinners into! But Manum detabula; I may no 
longer detain the (gentle Reader) thus standing at the door, but 
send thee into the house to partake of the good things there pre- 
pared; that wholesome and good Word of the Lord there opened. 
I commend it to thee as good in itself, and good at this time, a 
seasonable Word, an awakening Word, a soul affecting Word, a 
good helping among many others of like sort, to make thee and 
others serious, which was and is the design of this Sermon. The 
Reverend and Pious Author having the sense of what he spake 
upon his own heart, was willing also to affect the hearts of others, 
and therefore (as you see) he used not only acceptable, but oper- 
ative words, even words like goods and nails ; heart piercing ex- 
pressions, that they that hear may feel also. But what will all 
avail, if the Lord set not in with it ? Let our eyes be therefore 
unto him. And now the Lord bless, let the blessing of Heaven be 
upon this endeavor, and let that One Shepherd, the Lord Jesus 
Christ, by the hand of his Holy Spirit, so foster these awful truths 
upon all our hearts, that the powerful effects of the same may be 
seen in our reformed lives. 

Amen. So prays Thy Servant in Christ. F. Bishop. 


Jer. 6, 8, Be thou instructed O Jerusalem, lest my Soul depart 
from thee; lest I make thee desolate, a land not inhabited. 
Whoso shall view over and attentively consider the whole trace 
and series of God's dealing with and dispensations toward his 
Covenant People (however as to them they have sometimes issued 
very dreadfully) will find them giving in clear and abundant tes- 
timony to the Truth of that of the Psalmist, Psal. 145, 8, The 
Lord is Gracious, and full of Compassion, slow to anger, and 
of great mercy. Among many other passages in the sacred 
story to this purpose (purposely kept upon the File for the use of 
the Church in all Ages, and for ours upon whom the ends of the 
world are come) (he whose compassions have been ever of old, 
using the same tenor of tender dispensations towards his People 
now as then) the Text now read, as also what we find in the fore- 
going Chapters, make this very evident and apparent. You may 


see in the first Chapter God's calling, instructing and encourage- 
ing the Prophet, as to his Office and Work, or as to his Office- 
work, he being one of these Messengers of whom you have men- 
tion made, 2 Chron. 36, 15, That the Lord God of their Fathers 
sent unto them, rising tip betimes, and sending-, because he had 
compassion on his People, and on his dwelling Place. You 
may see in the second Chapter God's earnest and affectionate ex- 
postulation with his People by him as to his antient love and 
kindness to them, and their notwithstanding causeless Revolt and 
Apostacy from him. Go cry in the ears of Jerusalem, etc., 
Vers 2, &c. God rings such a peal in Jerusalem' s ears by the 
Prophet throughout the Chapter upon this account, as one would 
thought, should have reached and pierced, should have thirled 
and thawed their very hearts, you may see in the third chapter, 
God inviting and perswading them to Repent and turn to him 
with Promises of gracious acceptation, vers 1, 12. Also pleading 
with them his Covenant relation, and merciful propention to- 
wards them, vers 14, &c. You may see in the 4 Chapter God 
adding further to his former Promises, Promises to Promises, 
vers. 1, 2, and threatnings to his Promises, as in the sequel of 
that Chapter, if by any means, fair or foul, he might induce or 
necessitate, draw or drive them to Repentance. You may yet see 
in the fifth chapter, God's lothness to proceed against them to 
destroy them ; his exceeding readiness, his desirousness to pardon 
and spare them : Ruti ye to and fro through the streets of Jeru- 
salem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places 
thereof of ye can find a man, if there be any, that executeth 
judgment, that seeketh the truth, and I will pardon it, vers. 1. 
God speaks as one agrieved to punish them, as one ready to par- 
don them upon low termes ; and earnestly looking about if haply 
he might find something why he might do it. In this 6 Chapter, 
while yet there is any hope, we have God still pursuing the mat- 
ter with them, laying close siege unto them, putting home his 
threatnings, lowdly alarming them with his Judgements, plainly 
warning them of the worst that was to be expected, and unavoid- 
ably coming upon them, if not prevented solemnly, and earnestly 
admonishing them to bethink themselves, be advised that it 
might not come to that. This is in general the sense and intend- 
ment of the Text and Context, but to take a little more particu- 
larly view of it we have here : 1. In the beginning of this Chap- 
ter an exceeding lively, sensible, starting and awakening repre- 
sentation made of the siege and sack of Jerusalem, the miserable 
destruction by the Babylonians impending them. ye Children 


of Benjamin gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jeru- 
salem to escape the danger, he bids them flee out of Jerusalem to 
escape the danger, or rather the sense of it seems to be that they 
should gather themselves to go out of the city to make good their 
fronteers, and stand upon their defence against the enemy; as it 
is said of the Moabites, that when they heard the kings were 
come up to fight against them, they gathered all that were able 
to put on Armour a7id stood in their borders, 2 Kings 3, 21. 
Blow the trumpet in Tekoa, that is give the alarm, which as 
now commonly by the beating of the Drum, was then done by the 
blowing of the trumpet, Ezek. 7, 14. And set tip as a sign of 
fire in Beth haccorem, as is wont to be done at this day to give 
notice of any sudden invasion, for evil appeareth out of the 
north and great destructioti. Under all these terms, rallying of 
Men, Sounding of Trumpets, firing of Beacons, Military usages, 
in such cases the Prophet notably sets forth what a dreadful 
alarum the Northern Army should give them. The state of Jer- 
usalem thus invaded, is expressed vers. 2, / have likened the 
daughter of Sion to a comely and delicate Woman ; as in re- 
spects of God's benign and gentle dealing with her, so in respect 
of her abuse of Divine goodness and indulgence to Pride, Luxury, 
Wantonness, &c. The Shepherds with their Flocks shall come 
unto her, they shall pitch their tents against her, round about 
they shall feed every one in his place; the words either plainly 
show Jerusalem' s utter destruction; she should be so destroyed, 
that sheep should feed in her, iam seges est ubi Truiafuit, or 
under the similitude of the Shepherds, and their Flocks pitching 
their tents against her, round about the Caldeans with their 
Armies, the Captains with their Companies which should begirt 
them round, and besiege and hem them in on every side is set 
forth and expressed: It followeth, prepare War against her, 
arise and let us go up at 710011. Wo unto us for the day goeth 
away, for the shadows of the evening are stretched out, arise 
and let us go up by night, and let us destroy her Palaces, 
wherein is to the life described the zeal and spirit of the enemy to 
the work their restless industry at it day and night, and their 
very impatiency with themselves that they had not effected it ; all 
tending to set forth the woful destruction that their enemies 
should work them. But how doth the Prophet thus speak: 
Gather, Rally, blow the trumpet, fire the Beacon, &c. Was 
there any enemy in sight ? Was the Babylonian Army now in 
their borders ? No, they probably enjoyed sundry years patience 
after this, and before the destruction here spoken of came upon 


them ; but the Prophet thus speaks all along in the present tense, 
speaks as if the Caldeans were upon them, makes such a presen- 
tation of things as if present, and even now in their eyes and 
ears, that a dead, dull, secure, senseless people might be quick- 
ened and awakened indeed. God would, and we should, make 
evil present in the threat fling that we may put away and avoid 
it; Noah being warned of God of things not seen as yet moved 
with J 'ear prepared an Ark. 

2. In what followes in the 6 and 7 verses, he layes forth the 
causes of this sore impending destruction that he hath described; 
it seemed unreasonable to Festus to send a Prisoner and not 
withal to signify the Crimes laid against him, Acts 25, ult. As 
God wants not, so he is not wanting to give (the scripture is full 
of it) the reason of all the evils that he threatens to do, or doth 
against any; so here (according to his usual manner elsewhere) 
he gives the reason of that great destruction brought so near 
them in threatening of the former verses, viz., Jerusalem s 
abominable and boundless wickedness. Thus hath the Lord of 
Hosts said, hew down trees and cast a mount against Jerusa- 
lem, this is the city to be visited, she is wholly oppression in the 
midst of her. This is the City to be visited, not a City, but the 
City above all other Cities deserving and designed to be visited, 
but how visited ? Not in a way of favor, and care, and kindness, 
as sometimes that term is intending not by Prophets, and the 
tenders of grace and mercy. Jerusalem had been thus visited, 
but she had not known the day of her visitation, but in wrath and 
judgement and by a destroying enemy: but why thus visited? 
She is wholly oppression, in the midst of her they are called not 
oppressing but oppression, to show how superlatively oppressive 
they were, and not only oppression but wholly oppression, imply- 
ing the general infection, the universal prevailing of this sin, 'tis 
added in the midst of her; not in her suburbs, outskirts some odd 
and unobserved corners, was it thus ; but it sought no cover.t, it 
was visible, evident, and eminent in her; itfollows, as a fountain 
casteth out her waters so she casteth out her wickedness; a 
Fountain casteth out her waters naturally, freely, incessantly, 
constantly, forcibly, and abundantly ; and thus did Jerusalem sin 
as those accustomed, habituated, naturalized to sin, as those that 
could not cease from sin, as those that knew no restraint nor 
bounds or end of sinning ; as is further set forth in the following 
words, violence and spoil is heard in her before me. Continually 
is grief and wounds, the cry of Jerusalem went up like that of 
Sodom; poor Jerusalem, how is the faithful City become an harlot, 


it was full of Judgement, Righteousness lodged in it, but now 

3. In the Text (which makes the third and last part of the 
Context) (having thus realized to them that fore and certain ruine 
that was inevitably coming upon them, if not prevented, as also 
laid before them, those great and wrath-provoking sins, the 
causes of so great destruction) he comes earnestly and affection- 
ately to call upon them, to be perswaded, cautioned and advised 
for the preventing of it: Be thou instrtcctcd, Jerusalem, lest 
my soul depart from thee, lest I make thee desolate, a land not 
inhabited. This application made to them in the Text, is the use 
of the whole Context, the drift and scope, and design and ten- 
dency, & issue of all, is O that Jerusalem would be instrncted, 
lest her God leave, and leaving lay her desolate. To give you in 
the sense and importance of the words we have in them ; Two 
things to be considered, 1. Who is here spoken to ? 2. What is 
spoken ? 

1. Who is here spoken to, and that is Jerusalem; Jerusalem 
(to say nothing of its situation and outward strength and great- 
ness) was the City of God, the City of the Great King, the Holy 
City, the perfection of beauty, Israel' s Glory, and the joy of the 
whole Earth, loved of God in a special manner, and chosen to set 
his name there: There was his presence, his Worship, his Ordi- 
nances, his Oracles, his Prophets; there God shined and was 
known in her Palaces. At the first the Lord chose Israel from 
all the Nations of the World to be his People ; and after when 
Israel fell and made defection from God he reserved Judah to be 
the upholder of his true Religion ; and in Judah chose Jerusalem 
as the place of his Worship ; so that as Israel was God's peculiar 
People of all the World, so Judah was the best part of Israel, 
and Jerusalem the chief place of Judah; Jertisalem was then 
God's speciall peculiar People under that notion as appropriate to 
God, as near to God as near might be. This Jerusalem God here 
speaks to. And what saith he to them ? That's the 2, Thing to 
be considered, be thou instructed, &c. The words are Hortatory 
and Monitory and Minatory ; the Text in the run of it is mixed 
and made up of these, it is an Exhortation, or if you will an Ad- 
monition rather, and that under the severest commination. Note 
in it three things, 1. The Exhortation or Admonition itself. 2. 
The manner of expressing it, and putting it home to the Persons 
concerned. 3. The Motives inforcing. 

1 . The Exhortation and Admonition itself, the subject matter of 
it, be instructed (it), the Word signifies to be corrected, to be 

wakejJan genealogy. 87 

instructed, to be amended in, and by being corrected, to be in- 
structed is to know, and yet more than barely, meerly to know, to 
know (as the use of the term in Scripture language commonly sig- 
nifies) so as to be affected and acted accordingly, to know not 
speculatively, notionally only, with a cold, dry, barren, unpracti- 
cal knowledge, but to know with a consciencious feeling heart- 
affecting, operative knowledge to be instructed, is so to know and 
understand, take in and lay to heart the reason of things, as to be 
convinced, affected, cautioned, advised, counselled, perswaded, 
and in every respect accordingly concerned, and suitably wrought 
upon by it. We may fully take it up in these three things. 

1 . It implyes conviction, which is a right, true apprehension of 
things, as indeed they are; a real understanding how matters 
stand with us, or between God and us, to know things with appli- 
cation to ourselves, or for ourselves; as the phrase is, Job 5, ult 
which is indeed our wisdom, therefore it is called the instruction 
of Wisdom, Prov. 15, 33. And we are called upon to hear instruc- 
tion, and be wise, Prov. 8, 33. 

2. It infers Contrition, in case all is not well with us, or seeing 
ourselves (as it is said of Israel, Exod. 5, 10) to be in evil case. 
Conviction works, contrition and Repentance; a true sight of 
things infers and draws after it a due sense of things ; hence that 
of Ephraim, after I was instructed I smote upon my thigh, 
Jer. 31, 19. 

3. It ineludes and takes in Conversion, Conviction, working 
Contrition. Repentance works by it, and in the way of it unto 
Conversion, in respect of which eminently the reproofs of instruc- 
tion (i. e., the Conviction and Contrition it works tending to and 
ending in Conversion) are said to be the way of Life, Prov. 
6, 23. This is to be instructed, which is the matter of the 

2. The manner of expressing// Thou O Jerusalem, be thou in- 
structed; the terms are very Pathetical and full of affection: 'tis 
a passionate, quick, powerful and very moving mode of expres- 
sion, putting home what is spoken to the Persons concerned. Be 
thou instructed, there is an emphasis upon this {Thou) thou that 
art in a special manner appropriated to God, thou that art emi- 
nently privileged above others, thou whom I have chosen, loved, 
set my heart, laid out my care and kindness upon, Etc. Be thou 
instructed, O Jerusalem : Depth of Sorrow, and height of desire, 
when our affections and passions are up, bring us in with our 
(O's) our interjections and exclamations, as here O Jeru- 
salem, which carries in it great affection, and earnestness of 


3. The Motives inforcing it; Lest my Soul depart from thee, 
lest I make thee desolate, a land not Inhabited. The Words 
hold forth a first and second, or a double dreadful commination, 
in case the admonition given were not taken, were not attended 
to, lest my Soul depart from thee: The Soul of God is God 
himself, fob 23, 13, What the Soul desireth, even that he doth, 
i. e., What himself desireth. So Judg. 10, 16, His soul was 
grieved for the miseries of Israel, i. e., He was grieved, so that 
to say, lest my Soul depart from thee is as much as to say lest I 
depart from thee ; and yet it is more than so to say, for though 
that be the meaning of it, yet this manner of speaking carries 
more in it; God so speaks as to affect them with a due appiehen- 
sion of his deep concernment in what he so speaks, as a matter 
that his Soul, his Spirit was much in, when the soul is mentioned 
a thing said to be done with the soul, it implyes our Spirits to be 
much in it, as Isa. 26, 9, With my Soul have I desired thee in 
the night, and with my Spirit within me will I seek thee early. 
So also God thus Speaks to set forth and signifie to them the 
withdrawment of his love and affection from them, lest my Soul 
depart from thee, or as the Original, according to your Marginal 
reading, be loosed or disjoynted from thee, that is lest I with draw 
my love from thee, lest my mind be alienated. So it is rendred, 
Ezek. 23, 18, My mind was alienated from her, my mind or soul 
was loosed or disjoynted from her; the expression is the same 
with this of the Text, cleaving or knitting of Soul to or with any 
is expressive of love and affection: It is said of Shechem, his Soul 
clave unto Dinah the Daughter of Jacob, and he loved the 
Damsel, Gen. 34, 3. So of Jonathan, that his soul was knit 
with the soul of David, and he loved him as his own soul. 
1 Sam. 18, 1, Now I say, as cleaving and knitting of Soul to and 
with any. imports that we intirely and inwardly love and affect 
them, so for the Soul to depart from any, be loosed or disjoynted 
from them implyes disaffection, and an altogether alienation and 
estrangement of mind from them, lest my Soul depart from thee; 
then is as much as to say, lest I utterly leave thee, lest I wholly 
withdraw my affections, and totally aud finally take off my heart 
from thee. And as is further threatned, lest I make thee deso- 
late, a land not inhabited. The words are plain, and as plainly 
signifie not those gentler and corrective, but those consumptive, 
ruinating, destroying, desolating Judgements, that God taking 
off his heart from them, would bring upon them many afflictions, 
much of correction may possibly consist with the love and favour 
of God towards a People, or however, certain it is, that a People 


may severely smart under the effects of his displeasure, while yet 
his heart may be towards them, at least not wholly taken off from 
them; but when once it comes to this, that God's Soul departs 
from a People, he puts himself into ways of destruction towards 
them; when once his heart is taken of from them, his destroying 
hand is turned upon them: He first casts off, and then cuts off 
a People ; casts them first out of his heart, and then out of his 

It remains only to tell you that the {lest) here prefixed, Lest 
my Soul depart from thee, lest I make thee desolate : This two- 
fold lest hath a twofold look in it, as to either and both parts of 
the threatning; it looks both ways. i. Upon the prevention of it, 
that by their being instructed what is here threatned, might be 
obviated and prevented. 2. Upon the unavoidableness of it, if 
they be not instructed, if they hearken not to counsel, no other is 
to be hoped or expected but that it will certainly come upon 
them. This manner of speaking, according to the common usage 
of it, see Exod. 19, 22, Job 42, 8, implies as on the one hand a 
possibility of escaping what is so threatned, so be it that due use 
of means be attended to; so on the other hand, the impossibility 
of avoiding it in case of neglect: it holds forth not a probability, 
a danger only, but a certainty, that if means for prevention be 
not attended to, the evil threatned will be inflicted, if Jerusalem 
be not instructed, God's Soul will depart from her, &c. From the 
words thus opened, let me commend to you this great, consider- 
able and concerning point of doctrine, so in it self, tho it fall (the 
more the pity) to so inconsiderable and feeble a hand to manage 
and improve it ; namely, 

Doct. God so threatens to leave and lay waste, to take off 
his heart from, and turn his destroying hand upon his own 
People, as that it may, a?id that it may be prevented, yet so that 
if it be not, it will come to that : It concerns them therefore to 
be instructed, to be advised, to hearken to counsel, to bethink 
themselves, to be convinced, affected, repent, amend, convert 
and turn to God, lest they bring it to that woful pass. We 
have three things in the Doctrine (and the Text is very full of 
them all) 1. That God so threatens to leave and lay waste, to 
take off his heart from, and turn his destroying hand upon his 
own People, as that it may, and that it may be prevented. 

2. Yet God so threatens it, that if it be not prevented, it will 
come to that, he will certainly leave and lay them waste ; take off 
his heart from them, and turn his destroying hand upon them. 

3. It concerns them therefore, or these things considered, things 


thus standing, to be instructed, to be advised, to hearken to coun- 
sel, to bethink themselves, to be convinced, affected, repent, 
amend, convert and turn to God, lest they bring it to that woful 
pass. i. God so threatens to leave and lay waste, to take off 
his heart from and turn his destroying hand upon his own 
People : i. e., His visible Covenant People, as that it may, and 
that it may be prevented. The manner of God in his threat- 
nings, is to leave room for remedy; his end being that (if it may 
be) the threatned evil may be prevented: God doth not take a si- 
lent leave of his People {Jacob like from Lab an) upon displeas- 
ure steal away from them and say nothing, get him out of hearing 
before they hear anything of it: He doth not break away from 
them suddenly, and remedyesly, nor yet break in upon them sud- 
denly, surprise them (the Sinful People) fall foul upon them in his 
wrath, cast them off, cut them off; no this is not the manner of 
God, whose delight is in mercy. But God threatens to leave his 
People, so that it may, and that it may be prevented : God never 
leaves his People but he first threatens, warnes, advises, admon- 
ishes them; but he first bespeaks them as his People here: O, be 
instructed ; our Bible so abounds with this that it were endless, 
and to men acquainted with Scriptures, 'tis needless to give par- 
ticular instances. God long and often threatned, and warned Is- 
rael and Judah of old, before he alienated his heart from them ; 
called them Loammi and gave them a Bill of Divorce, nor yet 
had Ephesics, and those other New Testament Churches (tho now 
God makes quicker work than then) their Candlestick's removed, 
but after solemn & signal warning, for the prevention of it. And 
the reasons of it are, 

Reas. i. Prom God's lot hue ss to leave his people, his own, 
his Covenant People. The tender and indeared affection that he 
bears unto a People taken near unto himself; God's affections are 
stronger and he stands in closer relation to his Covenant People, 
than that he easily cast off and forsake them : The Lord will not 
forsake his People, i Sam. 12, 22. And in very deed, their 
being his people is founded upon such a bottom, even that of his 
free Grace, that is not easily slighted, as the reason there added 
shews; the Lord will not forsake his People. Because it hath 
pleased the Lord to make you his People. God having made 
any his People, and that of meer good pleasure, is not forward to 
cast off and forsake them: God not willingly afflicts, Lam. 3, 33. 
but much more lothly rejects his Covenant-People, as is notably 
set forth, Hos. 11, 8, How shall I give thee up, Ephraim ? How 
shall I deliver thee, Israel ? How shall I make thee as Adma, 


and set thee as Zeboim ? My heart is turned within me, my re- 
pentings are kindled together. The great God who here (as com- 
monly in Scripture) speaks of himself after the manner of men, to 
our understanding ; gives us to understand in this strange, passion- 
ate and Rhetorical language ; how hardly he brings his heart to 
it, to give up as to any more room in his affection, to deliver over 
unto destruction his own People: God (as I may say) is at a set 
when it comes to this, it casts him into a deep deliberation & a 
sorely exercising conflict in his own thoughts about it ; how doth 
he turn it with himself, and deeply, and inwardly, revolving the 
matter, question with himself about it ? What give up Ephraim, 
deliver Israel, make Ephraim, make Israel, as Adma and 
Zeboim ? How can I do it ? What deal thus by thee, Ephraim, 
by thee, Israel, by thee discard, destroy my own People as I 
have done ? Sodom, how can I find in my heart to do it ? How 
doth God roule this bitter pill in his mouth (with holy reverence 
be it spoken) and as unable to swallow it, at last spit it out ? / 
will not execute the fierceness of tnine anger, I will not return 
to destroy Ephraim ; so exceeding loth is God to give up, to give 
over his People to destrnction and therefore layes his threatning 
of it so, as to leave room for remedy. 

Reas. 2. That he might hereby try the love and affection of 
his People, whether they will let him go ; God intimates to a 
People his leaving of them, threatens with it before he doth, that 
he may feel how their pulse beats towards him, what affections 
they have for him ; how their love will strive and work upon such 
an occasion before God quite leaves a People, wholly takes off his 
heart from them ; he is willing to sound theirs whether they have 
any affections left for him. You may read, Exod. 33 (the People 
having committed that great sin in making them Gods of Gold) 
God tells them he will leave them, he will go no more in the midst 
of them : and to make them the more sensible of it, Moses takes 
the Tabernacle (the visible signe and token of God's presence) and 
pitches it without the camp afar off; and now God looks and 
listens what they say to it, how they take it that he may accord- 
ingly deal with them : When God is about to leave his People be- 
cause they provoke and set light by him he is yet willing to try 
them to the utmost whether they will so part with him ; whether 
they will indeed let him go, or whether they will stir up them- 
selves to take hold of him. You may see in Ezek., 9, 10, 11 
Chapters, God so signalizing his departure from his People in 
those several, gradual, visible, and observable removes of his 
glory there mentioned, as if he had said, let them see me going, 



that I may see if they have any love or regard for me ; God stands 
at every step, looks back, listens if there were any that minded or 

Reas. 3. That they might have opportunity of striving to 
keep God with them, and be quickened and stirred up to the 
improvement of it that they might as the Prophet speaks, Jsa. 
55, 6, Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him 
while he is tiear. God makes offer to go from his People, threat- 
ens to be gone, speaks of leaving them that they may be effectu- 
ally awakened to enquire what's the matter, to reform what's 
amiss, to repent of and part with those sins that are the causes of 
God's threatned departure from them ; by such intimations 
also, lest I leave you lest my Soul depart from you : God 
would stir up his People, not to let him go, shake them up from 
their loose sitting to him, and quicken them to lay faster hold on 

Reas. 4, and last. That whe?i God hath left a People, and 
leaving them left them to destruction, they may be lost inex- 
cusable ; that when God is gone he hath indeed cast off a People, 
his Soul is departed from them, his heart and hand turned against 
them (all means of precaution, prevention improved with them 
proving unavailable) they may not have to complain but of them- 
selves, and their wilful and remedyless self-destroying folly. 
God goes not from a People but with observation, and after many 
and evident premonitions and warnings, they shall not have to 
say, alas, how hath God left us ? It was sudden, unexpected, un- 
thought of else what would we not have done to prevent it: But 
God will have to say, not only you gave me cause to go by your 
sins, but (as it were) leave to go by your silence, your senseless- 
ness; you know, and heard, and saw me going, and yet were no 
more affected, stirred, no more then as those wholly unconcerned 
about it, or well enough contented with it. 

2. Yet God so threatens it that if it be not prevented, it will 
come to that, he will certainly leave and lay them waste, take 
off his heart from them, and turn his destroying hand upon 
them. If Jerusalem, God's own people, will not be instructed, 
let God threaten, warn, call upon, admonish, counsel them, noth- 
ing takes with them, they lay nothing to heart, apply themselves 
to no means of prevention but remain unadmonishable, incorigi- 
ble, irreclaimable under all: God will leave and give over such a 
people, though his own people: See Jer. 32, 31, 32, 33, verses. 
God tells them he will remove them from before his face, because 
of all the evil which they did, and because though he taught them 


rising up early and teaching tbem, yet they hearkened not to re- 
ceive instruction, so, 2 Chron. 36, 14, &c, God had compassion on 
his People, and on his dwelling place : And hence bare with 
them, forbare them, continued with much patience in the use of 
abundance of means to wait upon them, but they continued to sin 
and slighted all until the wrath of the Lord arose against his 
People till there was no remedy. God warns in mercy, and may 
continue to warn in much mercy: but to sin, to continue to sin 
against warning, will at last bring wrath without remedy: And 
the reasons of it are : 

Reas. r. Because such is the nature of sin, such its contrari- 
ety tinto God, so loathsome it is in his sight that impenitent ly, 
irreclaimably persisted in, it will work any People, even his 
own people out of his heart. God hates, abhors, abominates sin 
as the Scripture abundantly witnesseth: It is that abominable 
thing that he hates, Jer. 44, 4. Sin finds so little favour in God's 
heart that he cannot abide the sinner in his sight ; he so hates the 
work that he hates the worker of iniquity: The foolish shall not 
stand in thy sight, thou hatest the workers of iniquity, Psal. 
55, Not only for sin did the Lord eject, abhorre these heathen 
nations whom he cast out before his people, for they committed 
all these things, and therefore I abhorred them, Levit. 20, 23. 
But even his own Israel they were defiled with their own works 
and went a whoring with their own inventions ; therefore was the 
wrath of the Lord kindled against his People, insomuch that he 
abhorred his own inheritance, and gave them into the hand of the 
heathen, &c. , Psal. 106, 39, 40, 41. And what a fearful word is 
that from God concerning his own People, the People of his choice 
and love. Amos. 6, 8, The Lord hath sworn by himself, saith 
the Lord of Hosts. I abhor the excellency of "Jacob, and hate 
his Palaces, therefore will I deliver up the city and all that is 
therein. So much was the heart of God alienated from them, so 
deeply was he disaffected to them by their sinful and unwofthy 
deportments, of which you have mention made in the foregoing 
Context. God loved Israel, Hos. 11, 1. Yea but sin (that make- 
bate sin that separateth chief friends) was of power to expel them 
both, his heart and house for the wickedness of their doings. I 
will drive them out of my house. I will love them no more, 
Hos. 9, 15. Never is God so wedded unto any People but they 
may sin so as utterly to work themselves out of his affections. 

Reas. 2. Because it is not for any worthiness in them more 
thaft any other People that God is taking them to be his People, 
and setting his love upon them, as God tells Israel, Deut. 7, 7, 8. 



If they therefore forfeit distinguishing grace and mercy by their 
unworthiness, they neither were, nor are better than others, nor 
is there any reason why God should continue them to be his Peo- 
ple, continue his love and affection to them, regard them more or 
make any other or better account of them than of any other Peo- 
ple: See Amos 6, i, 2. 

Reas. 3. Because God' 's free Promise and Covenant z's condi- 
tionall. If they will be his People he will be their God, if they 
will own him he will own them ; if they will continue with him he 
will continue with them, but if they will none of him, he will none 
of them; if they cast off him he will cast off them. 2 Chron. 
15, 2, The Lord is with you while ye be with him, and if ye seek 
him he will be found of you, but if ye forsake him he will for- 
sake you. God therefore gives this as the reason of his deserting 
them their deserting him. 2 Chron, 24, 20, Because ye have for- 
saken the Lord he hath also forsaken you ; so God tells them, 
breaking with him that he will break with them. Num. 14, 34, 
Ye shall know my breach of Promise. Not that God breaks cov- 
enant (never did he yet suffer, nor never will his faithfulness to 
fail) but they failing forfeited (as is the case in conditional Prom- 
ises) the obligation on his part God keeps touch with us as we 
keep touch with him : Not that this is so to be understood, as if 
there were anything in us, or doable by us to merit, deserve, 
or make due in a way of Justice Gcfd's gracious presence with us, 
nor yet as if an uncertain and undetermined will and purpose in 
God, respecting his dealings with a People, took its measures 
from them, were moved, changed, determined, according to their 
carriage towards him nothing less ; all is of him who worketh all 
things after the counsel of his own will ; and of his free Grace 
(yea, the very condition) whose it is to work in us both to will 
and to do of his good pleasure: Yet God's absolute will and pur- 
pose in himself is conditional in the dispensation of it unto us : 
He takes no conditions from us, but he gives conditions to us, and 
still reserving to himself according to his own sovereign pleasure, 
to work toe conditions in us which himself requireth of us, he 
dealeth with us according to them. And in very deed in this way 
God wonderfully glorifies his Wisdom, Goodness, Justice in his 
dispensations in propounding the most reasonable, equal condi- 
tions as what can be more than to be with them while they are 
with him ; to be found of them seeking him, not to forsake them, 
but forsaking him, solemnly advising them for the best, and then 
leaving People to their own choice and dealing with them ac- 
cording to it. 


Reas. 4. Lastly. / might add, because God is most highly 
dishonored, most exceeditigly provoked by the sins of his own 
People ; a Peoples being God's own, and the more he is owning 
of them, is so far from palliating and extenuating, that it greatly 
aggravates and augments their sin against God, and their Judge- 
ment from him. You only have I known of all the Families of 
the Earth, therefore I will punish you for all yovr iniquities, 
Amos 3, 2. There is not that in the sin of others that is in theirs; 
others may sin better cheap than they may do, whom God hath 
known and owned above others, they sin against greater Light 
and Love, and Grace than do others ; the relation they stand in to 
God, and the mercies that in that relation they stand under from 
him, exceedingly aggravate their sin: do ye thus requite the Lord 
O foolish People and tmwise ? Is he not thy Fat her- that hath 
brought thee, that hath made thee and established thee, Deut. 
32, 6. And besides by virtue of this relation, their sin is more 
against God, and so more to him, more deeply resented by him 
than the sin of others: God can much better bear the misbe- 
haviours and undutiful carriages of persons at a greater distance 
than in his own family, his own Children, this goes near him: 
When the Lord saw it he abhorred them, because of the provok- 
ing of his Sons and of his Daughters, Deut, 32, 19. 

3. // concerns them therefore, or these things considered, 
things thus standing to be instructed, to be advised, to heark- 
en to counsel, to bethink themselves, to be convinced, affected, re- 
pent, amend, convert, and turn to God, lest they bring it to that wo- 
fulpass. Zeph. 2, 1, 2, Gather your selves together ; yea gather 
together a nation not desired before the decree bring forth, &c. 
How earnestly doth God call upon them to recollect themselves (for 
that seems to be the sense of it) so rally their thoughts to bethink 
themselves ; yea, to bethink themselves and be advised before it 
be to late. But this is so Consonant with, and evident from the 
whole current of Scripture: Seefer. 4, 4, 5, & 26, 2, 3, & 36, 2, 3. 
That it may suffice to have pointed you to those places, in which, 
with many more, God manifestly admonishes his People of this 
duty, and presseth upon them the consideration how nearly it con- 
cerns them to be instructed, warned, reclaimed, look about them, 
bethink themselves before those threatned evils as evitable, un- 
avoidably overtake them : 'Tis also so clear a consequent from, 
and the grounds and reasons are so obvious in what hath been 
already said, that I shall not stand further upon it, but proceed to 
Application. And the only use we shall make of it is (according 
to the intendment, and Scope, and Spirit of the Text) for solemn 


admonition and awakening: Give me leave (your call hath done 
it: yea, the call of God necessitates it) to apply my self to you 
with all possible plainness and faithfulness in the Name of the 
great God (whose unworthy spokesman unto you this day I am) 
and in his word, according to the tenor (as we have it here) of his 
awful warning to his People of old. Thus saith the Lord be 
thou instructed. O New England, Be thou instructed O Con- 
necticut Colony, lest my Soul depart from thee, lest I make thee 
desolate a land tiot inhabited: Jerusalem ivas, New England 
is, they were, you are God's own, God's Covenant People, and 
what concerned them in that their day no less concerns you in this 
your day, this word that the Lord sent to Jacob, and it lighted 
upon Israel, comes now to be applyed to you ; change but the 
persons & the relation is the same, and as to condition it is so 
much the same, that (as some have observed) never were any 
people more neatly to be paralleled with them : put but in New 
England" ' s name instead of that of Jerusalem, and to you be- 
longs, to you is the word of solemn caution and admonition sent; 
and O that you would be perswaded to take it home to yourselves 
that it might sink down into your ears and take hold upon all 
your hearts ; and that it may so do. 

1. Consider, it is possible that New England may sin away 
God ; we may so sin. as to provoke the Lord to leave and lay us 
desolate. What though we have layen near God's heart (as I 
perswade myself this poor Land hath done) sin and falseness to 
God may work us out of God's affections, alienate his mind from 
us as it did from his dearest Judah of old: What? though God 
dearly affecting us, hath been tenderly and carefully protecting 
us (as is evident he hath done) we may by our sins so provoke, 
grieve, disoblige him that he may change both heart and hand to- 
wards us: Was it not so with his own People, the subjects of his 
antient care and kindness: In all their afflictions lie was afflicted 
and the Angel of his presence saved them ; in his love and in 
his pity he redeemed them, and carried them all the days of old; 
but they rebelled and vexed his holy Spirit, therefore he was 
turned to be their enemy, and fought against them, Isai. 63, 9, 10. 
Never were any People so deeply fixed in the heart of God, or so 
eminently privileged with the effects of his Love, but their sinful 
wayes, their unworthy and unsuitable deportments towards the 
God of their mercies hath wrought them out of his favour, and 
brought them under his sorest displeasure : / have forsaken fnine 
house, I have left my heritage, I have given the dearly beloved 
of my soul into the hand of her enemy es, Jer. 12, 7. God's own 


People, how much soever he hath owned them, or how tenderly 
affected soever he hath born himself towards them, may not con- 
clude from thence (while they take no care to carry themselves 
accordingly) that God will not forsake and destroy them: indeed 
such a presumptuous confidence men may have, as they had, 
Jer. 7, 4, &c. But as you may there see God rejects their con- 
fidence, beats them off from it, bids them not trust in lying 
words, but bids-'them go; go ye now unto my place which was in 
Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did 
unto it for the iniquity of my People Israel ; and how many 
after examples of like nature hath God added to that first presi- 
dent, so that (as one saith) we have more places to go than to 
Shilo. The Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them 
out of his sight; there was none left but the tribe of Jadah only, 
2 Kings 17, 18, And the Lord said I will remove Judah also out 
of my sight, as I have removed Israel, and I will cast off this 
City Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the hottse of which I 
have said my Name shall be there, 2 Kings 23, 27. And with 
like severity hath the Lord (in New Testament times) proceeded 
against Ephesus and those other Asian Churches to the utter 
rejecting and unchurching of them, according to what was 
threatned, Rev. 2, 5. And are all these things nothing to us? 
Can we look upon what befel them and not be concerned, to think 
what may come upon ourselves ? the Lord that by all these in- 
structing examples we may be instructed, lest it befall us as it 
hath done them ; be we awakenedly apprehensive that it may so 
do, believe we that God's Soul may depart from us, he may make 
us desolate as he hath done them. 

2 . Consider it looks very threatningly lest it come to this ; 
it is not only possible that it may, but too too probable, exceeding 
tremendously suspicious that it will come to it ; to be plain with 
you (I dare be no other) according to the present face, and frame 
and posture of things amongst us, we are in very fair way (or 
more fitly to express a matter of that nature in a very formidable 
way) to bring it to that woful pass, that is of sad, of very sad but 
of very sensible consideration, to those whose thoughts are exer- 
cised about, and have any discerning in matters of this nature, 
who sees not (& who that is awake doth not tremble to see) that 
things are going, yea every day more than other growing towards 
that fatal issue ; God's people are not wont to fall off from him at 
once ; nor he to take his farewell all at once ; there are many 
dark and crooked, and winding and downward steps before 
it comes to the bottom of this break-neck hill, with a 


God-forsaking and forsaken people ; is it of no less certain than 
solemn observation that God's New England People sit looser 
unto God than they have sometimes done, and that he also 
sits looser unto them ; it looks alas, it looks as if those dear and 
ancient Friends were about to part, and were even standing upon 
parting termes one with another. Consider we our wayes towards 
God and his wayes towards us, and the one and the other, and 
both together will present us with an aspect of a very threatning 
tendency towards bis utter leaving of us. 

1. Consider we our wayes and doings towards God, and see 
if we have not cause, much cause to fear that God will leave us, 
take off his heart from us, and turn his destroying hand upon us. 
And here, 

1. More generally Consider, Do not our sinful wayes and evil 
doings give us cause to fear lest the Lord leave us; the evilness, 
sinfulness of our wayes and doings is so evident and apparent 
that there needs no secret search: how many above.board in- 
stances might be given you, of which we may say, it is found 
upon all these ; our iniquities testifie against us, our pride and 
many other sins testifie to our faces the truth of this beyond all 
denial, aud being so how threatniugly doth it look that God 
will leave us, take off his love from us, and lay a wrathful hand 
upon us ? Indeed sinners are prone to have slight thoughts of 
God too as to his making so great a matter of it that he should 
thus do ; but if you will take up true Scriptural notions of it, and 
such as God himself puts upon it, verily you will find that in it 
that will tell you that it is a righteous thing with God thus to deal 
by a people so demeaning towards him, and that they therein receive 
that recompence of wayes that is meet. What is sin (I mean not 
inevitable, unwilling and lamented weakness and infirmities, but 
sin purposely committed, and impenitently persisted in) ? I say, 
what is sin, such manner of sinning, in the true Scripture notion 
of it in the judgement of God, which is according to truth ? Is it 
not a forsaking God ? And have we not cause to fear forsaking 
God he will forsake us ? Is it not a departing, a going away from 
God ? And we leaving God, may we not expect he will leave 
us ? Is it not a casting off God, and we casting off him ? Have 
we not reason to think he will cast off us ? Is it not a revolting 
from God ? a revolting from under the Lord ? a casting off his 
Government ? a rebelling against him ? And what can we count 
upon or look for thus doing, but that God should turn his back 
upon us, cast us out of his favour and protection, deal with us as 
Rebels, become our enemy, and fight against us ? Yea, is it not 



a hating God, an abhorring him in your souls (whatever you call 
or count if God calls or counts it so), and can you thus dealing by 
the blessed God hope other or better than that his Soul should 
loath them whose soul abhors him, that he should repay them 
that hate him to their face, to destroy them ? In a word, sin is a 
heart departing from God in the root of it, and a life departing 
from God in the fruit of it ; men having first withdrawn their love 
and affections from God as the consequent of it withdraw their 
duty and allegiance, and being thus revolted and gone from God 
in heart and life, in affection and action, in spirit and conver- 
sation; have we not just cause to fear lest God's Soul depart from 
us, and he withdraw all the outward effects of his care and good- 
ness towards us, and so make us desolate ? 

2. Consider further, and somewhat more particularly ; are not 
those sins to be found, yea do they not abound and grow rife 
amongst us, that are very gravamenous, nautious, distasteful 
unto God, that eminently tend to disaffect God, disjoynt 
his soul from us, and provoke his sorest Displeasure against 
us, First. Let me lay my hand upon that that lies at the 
bottom of all our other sins, and which of all our unkind- 
nesses towards a good God he takes most tenderly, and layes 
deepest to heart, and that is our unworthy entertainments of the 
glorious Gospel of the blessed God; our receiving of the grace of 
God in vain, the neglect of that great salvation to continue im- 
penitent, unconverted ; unbelieving under the Gospel is to sin to 
the outmost, being the outstanding of uttermost grace and mersy, 
and brings wrath to the uttermost indeed ; if uttermost love, ut- 
termost grace rejected, what but uttermost wrath is to be expect- 
ed? In the Gospel God hath made a way for his mercy, he hath 
poured forth all his grace, he has no more, he has drawn forth his 
soul, his tenderest Bowels mercys to the other end to poor needy 
sinners, and for them to set at naught and slight all this ; this if 
anything will make God forget to be gracious: nothing wins upon 
the heart of God more than the hearty entertainment of the Gos- 
pel, but nothing wounds God more, weans his Soul from a people 
more than a regardless contempt of it: for a company of poor, 
miserable, wretched, abject, undone, damned siuners to put a 
slight upon the strange, wonderful, astonishing grace of the great 
God in Jesus Christ towards them, bid him keep his Christ, his 
Pardon, his Grace, his Peace, his Life, his Salvation to himself as 
in effect they do that repent not, nor beleive the Gospel : I must 
leave you to imagine how God takes this ; is not this the Salvation 
that is by Jesus Christ ? the thing that God hath set his heart 


upon ? is it not the most pleasing contentful design (to the utmost 
that we know) that ever he engaged in ? hath not God laid out of 
the greatest Skill and Cost upon it? and hath he not projected 
and promised to himself the greatest revenue of glory from it ? 
and for us to slight and set at naught, and what in us lies wholly 
frustrate it, will God can God take this well ? We worms can 
take it grievously enough to have our design frustrated, that we 
have beaten our heads about, laid our selves for, set our hearts 
upon, and promised our selves much from, think then what a cor- 
rasive it is to the heart of God to be so dealt by in that which he 
hath set his mind upon, never anything more. O Sir, would you 
study to thwart, to cross God, to do the greatest despight ; there 
is no way like this, and will God bear it to have the deep counsels 
of his Wisdom derided, the great purpose, the pleasure of his will 
opposed, the wisdom of his love slighted, the riches of his grace 
despised, his Son the darling of his Soul contemned and rejected, 
yea himself in all that he is, and has, and can do for poor creat- 
ures (all his gracious and merciful overtures to them notwithstand- 
ing) utterly set at naught ; will not God visit for these things ? 
will not his soul be disjointed from, and avenged upon such a 
people as this? Again, Are -we not guilty of great Apostacy 
from God? a sin greatly distasteful to him: If any man draw 
back my soul shall have no pleasure in him, Heb. 10, 38. And 
are not we of those that draw back in such degree (the Lord grant 
it may not be unto perdition) that we have much cause to fear 
lest his soul depart from us ? is there not with too many of us too 
evident a defection from God and the good wayes of the Lord in 
their very judgments and opinions ? In their judgments they are 
not the men they were, they are not in their judgments such fast 
friends to the power of godliness, as sometimes ; they do not lay 
that weight, that necessity upon a close walking with God, and 
serious diligence in a way of duty upon Closet, Family or more 
publick performances, as sometimes, so that if men do not begin 
to cavil against, or question about these things, where is the rule 
for daily secret Prayer, meditation, self-examination ? or where is 
the rule that a Man must every day read a chapter or two in his 
Family? Yet their judgments are secretly, insensibly wrought 
off from laying the weight and stress upon these things. As to 
the constant, diligent, accurate, thorough attendance to them, as 
that they can go out with many neglects, and many remiss, 
slight, hasty, half performances, and their consciences not much 
reprove them ; the working out their salvation with fear and 
trembling, utmost care and diligence the striving to enter, and 


taking the Kingdom of Heaven by violence, begins to look more 
than needs ; and the exercise of self-denyal in the holding their 
senses under restraint, and government and constant watchful- 
ness over their hearts and waves, seems a kind of overstrictness : 
Men are gone off in their judgments, stand not so clearly and 
fixedly perswaded in their own minds of the necessity and im- 
portance of such attendencies, and begin to take up an opinion 
that there needs not so much ado that all this is not of that abso- 
lute necessity, but that it will be a tolerable thing, at least to 
abate somewhat from it. And to evident is it that we are to 
much backsliden from God in our affections and conversations : 
we have lost our first love and left our first works ; if the love of 
New England's espousals be now sought for, it will not be 
found. And if the footsteps of those that first followed the Lord 
into this, as then unknown land, be enquired after how dim and 
almost worn out will they appear ? Where is that ancient love, 
desire, delight to and in the Ordinances of God, and all the 
means of Communion with him, and that careful and exact walk- 
ing with God in all those ways of duty, both toward God and 
Man now become ? 

Verily, we are gone backward, backward and not forward, and 
verily these backward retrograde God forsaking Motions carry- 
such hateful unthankfulness unto God, such to be abominated 
falseness, perfidiousness to him ; yea, they cast such reproach and 
contempt upon God, put such a publick slight upon him, put him 
to such open shame in the eyes of the world, for a People after 
some tryal made of him and of his service, thus to decline, shrink 
back from and forsake him, that we have cause to fear God, will 
take himself in honour bound to right himself in the ruine of such 

I tremble to think (the truth of the charge there made consid- 
ered) how wishly that threatning looks upon us. Jer. 15, 6, 
Thou hast forsaken me, saith the Lord, thou art gone backward, 
therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee and destroy 

Again, Is there not amongst us that hypocrisie formal- 
ity, overlyness, outsidness in the matters of God and Godliness ? 

That God that searcheth the heart, and desireth truth in the 
inward parts, cannot but see and hate a form of Godliness, the 
upper garment of Saintship (though even that now with many grows 
thin and thread-bare), is in fashion, and a great wear amongst 
us ; but inside Christianity, the power of godliness, is but here 
and there found ; there is an outside godliness, an external show 


still with us, we hear, we pray, we receive Sacraments, we have 
our Conference Meetings, our Lectures, Fasts, and other Solemni- 
ties ; we are conversant in external acts of Worship but inside 
godliness, and that in which indeed the life and soul of it lies, the 
loving God, fearing God, trusting in God, delighting in and liv- 
ing upon God in the ways and means of communion with him ; 
these internal, vital acts of worship, where almost are they to be 
found ? Of us may God revive the old complaint and say, this 
people draw near tne with their month, and with their lips, do 
honour ?ne, but have removed their hearts far from me, Isai. 
29, 13. And have we not cause to fear that God's soul, his affec- 
tions, his Salvations will be far from those whose hearts are far 
from him: those that having a form of godliness, but denying the 
power of it, God hath bidden his own from such turn away, and 
may we not expect that himself will much more do it ; how can 
we say, we love him, when our hearts are not with him, or if we 
do so say, will God be mockt ? will he accept us ? Yea, will he 
not detest us for a dissembled profession of what is not. Me- 
thinks destruction from God should be a terrour to us when we 
read what near neighbors a hypocritical nation, & the people of 
God's wrath are as we do ? in that Isai. [sic] 10, 6. Again, a cold, 
dead, indeed indiffere7it, luke wartn spirit, a temper greatly 
nauteous unto God. Rev. 3, 16, Many may their portion be made 
fat, and their meat plenteous, as to temporals little mind or mat- 
ter which end goes forward as to spirituals, or as to civils, or 
order thereunto, methinks men seem to have spent (alas lament- 
ably to have mispent) their zeal about matters of Religion I can- 
not but remember what sad and breaking contentions we have 
had not many years since about Church-priviledges, and that 
earnest stickling that hath been with men for the obtainment of 
them, for themselves and theirs. A charitable heart would sure 
have thought that men's souls had longed for those wayes and 
means of communion with God, and that a zeal for the enjoyment 
of God in all his Ordinances had influenced those contendings for 
and about them. But alas, who can but be sad upon it to see the 
end obtained, and a door set open to those enjoyments, and such 
a dull spirit of indifferency as to these things, at least as to mak- 
ing any real and answerable improvement of them : Is this our 
zeal for God, his Ordinances, the good things of his house, that 
chills and dyes if it have not a spirit of contention to cherish and 
keep it warm ? This fire withdrawn, we discover ourselves, as 
indeed we are, a cold, luke-warm people ; verily it must be some 
more kindly heat that must keep us warm upon the heart of God> 


or we shall wamble upon his stomack and be in eminent danger to 
be spued out of his mouth. 

Again, Are we not guilty of great ingratitude unto God, of 
unworthy unthankful slighting and undervaluing the great things 
he hath done for us, the blessings of the upper and nether springs, 
Spiritual, Temporal Mercies, with a liberal hand bestowed upon 
us ? Verily, I think we have run deep into Divine displeasure 
upon this account; and that if every People, New-England hath 
cause to fear, lest wrath be upon them for their not rendring 
again according to the benefits done unto them. Men have 
known too well how to be discontent, and repine and murmur ; 
but how to be thankful they have not known : if they have been 
ever so little crossed, or pinched, or charged, the Magistracy hath 
been discontented, the Ministry discontentful, they could even 
with a change like pettish Israel, Let us make a Captain and re- 
turn into Egypt : Much alas, too much of the spirit of that un- 
thankful, untoward, froward, discontented murmuring generation 
that was so grievous to God hath been amongst us, and hath 
given us cause to fear that partaking of their sins ; we shall par- 
take of their plagues: Alas for the day it looks, as if a provoked 
God were about to bring it upon an unthankful People, when we 
shall know the worth of those mercies in their want, which we 
have not known in their enjoyment, when Justice shall be turned 
into gall, and the fruit of Righteousness into Hemlock; when 
as Mic. 7, 3, 4, The Judge ask for a reward, and the great man 
utter eth his mischievous desire ; so they wrap it up the best of 
them, and as a briar, and the most upright of them sharper 
than a thorn hedge. In that day will unthankful New-England 
be moved to know the worth of their precious, but low pric'd lib- 
erties; as sensible as were the men of Sue cot h under Gideon's 
severed discipline. Again. Our great pride prognosticates 
sadly. I do not mean only or mainly those toyes and unmanly 
vanities that trie minds of younger, and too many older persons 
are set upon, though sad and bad enough it be, that the hearts of 
Men and Women, made for a better place, are got into their 
sleeves, but that haughtiness of spirit that predominates amongst 
us, every no body would be some body, and persons of a com- 
moner rank, look but too earnestly towards the upper end of the 
World; men know not their places. The child behaves himself 
protidly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable: 
Men's conditions sit uneasie, and their callings suit them not, and 
more especially that stoutheartedness that transports men to an 
awlesness, not only of men, as vested with his authority, they will 


bear uo yoke in any relation ; but even of God himself ; they fear 
not him in his Word or Works, and what shall we think of this 
pride ? put first among those things that God hates ? that are 
abomination to him? Prov. 6, 16, 17. And will God (think we) 
love or loath a proud people ? Hath God respect to the lowly ? 
But doth he know the proud afar off? Psal. 138, 6. And may 
not our hearts ake to think how far we are from the favorable and 
respectful knowledge of God ? and how superciliously, and at 
what a distance God holds us ? Hath God said, That to this man 
will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and 
that trembleth at my words? Isa. 66, 2. How are persons of a 
proud and contemptuous spirit, that are so far from trembling at 
the Word of God, that they can freely, and fearlessly despise both it 
and them that bring it resented by him ; and to conclude, If pride 
goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall, 
Prov. 16, 18, we have cause from the consideration of what it 
hath been amongst us to fear what will follow. 

Again. Our great worldliness looks wofully upoti us; the 
World, the love of the World, the zeal of the world is too deeply 
gotten into the hearts and lives of men, and hath so thoroughly 
possessed them, that there is no room for anything else ; their 
eyes and their hearts are not but for their covetousness. There 
was a generation that first fought the kingdom of God, but now 
with many it is the world, the world that is first and last fought, 
or if the Kingdom of God and his Righteousness have anything 
from them, it is the leaving of the world they are put off with. 

It is covetousness, so Paul. Col. 3, 5, is the love of the world 
spiritual adultery; so Jam. chap. 4, 4. And doth God hate these 
sins as much as in the days of old ? Can we think that such an 
Idolatrous, whorish spirit that is found in the midst of us will not 
alienate the mind of God from us, is the friendship with the 
world Enmity with God, whosoever will be a friend of the world 
is the enemy of God, Sam. 4, 4, is the love of the world and the 
things of the world, exclusive of the love of God. If any man 
love the World, the love of the Father is not in him, 1 John 
3, 15. We may well fear, and not without a cause, that the love 
of the world will leave us as little room in God's heart as it hath 
done him in ours. 

Again. That great sensual lity that is amongst us, and the 
therein high abuse of Divine bounty : How can it but be very 
evilly resented by God, when (as one aptly, and upon like solemn 
occasion expresst it to you, as indeed the matter is) men fight 
against God with his own goodness, turn the edge to his kindness 


against himself; not serving him with joyfulness and gladness of 
heart in abundance of all things (but as much as in them lyes) 
make his Power and Providence, his bounty and care to serve 
with their iniquities, when men grow fat and kick, instead of 
having their hearts lift up in the wayes of God, who had made 
them to prosper, they lift up the heel against him, when God's 
corn and wine is made provision for the flesh to fulfil the lusts of 
it: the better God is to them, the more wanton, sensual, unclean, 
temperate they are. O this galls, this provokes: How shall I 
pardon thee for this, when I fed them so to the full, then they 
committed adultery, &*c, shall I not visit for these things, &*c, 
Jer. 5, 7, 9. Other things might be mentioned (but the time 
would fail to insist upon particulars) the want of love and peace 
(alas for the great decay of a spirit of love amongst Christians) 
may make us fear that the God of love and peace will not take up 
his abode with us; the want of righteousness (who sees not 
great unrighteousness amongst us) may make us doubt that the 
Rigateous Lord who loves Righteousness, and whose countenance 
doth behold the upright, will remove his gracious presence farr 
from us; so want of Truth, unfaithfulness, men's words, their, 
promises, they are but like the hypocrites hope, they have no hold 
in them, and do but deceive them that depend upon them ; a great 
and common sin, and we may well think greatly provoking and 
distasteful unto him whose stile is the God of Truth but I must 
not follow these things any further, enough hath been said to tell 
us that there is much of that of those sins found amongst us that 
eminently tend to disaffect God toward us . 

3. Consider yet again, as those are sins greatly nautious and 
distasteful unto God, eminently tending to disaffect him towards, 
and to take off his heart toward a People, so as they are found 
amongst us, they fall under such considerations, such circum- 
stances, such aggravations as cannot but render them exceed- 
ing grievous to the very soul of God, and superlatively provok- 
ing; but to intimate, hi the land of uprightness, we have dealt 
thus wickedly : 'Tis the noble Vine that God hath planted so 
lately that hath brought forth such degenerate fruits, such wild 
grapes as these. Can this but be greatly provoking ? 

Again. So have these roots of bitterness sprung up, that thereby 
many are defiled ; these are not the sins of some few, but we 
are many that have transgressed in these things: The evils 
mentioned (at least as to many of them) are such as the body of 
this people are deeply leaven'd and tainted with, and certainly 
when such sins grow common, we have cause to think what is 


coming. But again above all, The impenitent persistence in 
these evils, after all God hath said and done to reclaim us, 
looks dreadfully upon us : God hath tryed us with enterchange- 
able dispensations, mercies and corrections, afflictions and salva- 
tions, have had their turns and returns upon us ; yet we sin still, 
he hath smitten ; yea, he hath consumed us but we have not 
received correction ; he hath knock us off with many a hard blow ; 
yea, with blow upon blow, and breach upon breach, but we hold 
fast deceit and refuse to return : What shall God do with such a 
People ? what may they expect from him ? Because I have 
purged thee and thou wast not purged, thou shall not be 
purged from thy filthiness any more until I have causedmyfury 
to rest upon thee, Ezek. 21, 13. Our wayes toward God then 
give us much cause to fear lest God leave and lay us desolate. 

2. Let us consider God ' s wayes toward us, and see if they 
also do not give us ground jealousie that the Lord is about to 
leave us: Evident it is that the countenance of the Lord is not 
toward us as heretofore ; the face of Divine Providence is full of 
awful indiciums that God is taking off his heart, and withdrawing 
his gracious presence from us: What said good Gideon, If the 
Lord be with us why then is all this befallen us ? And where 
are all his miracles that our fatliers told us of? May not we 
so say, if the Lord be with us, if he be not about to leave us, have 
not begun to disaffect us and estrange himself from us, why then 
is all this befallen us ? And where are those signal tokens of his 
presence, and all his wonder-working providences that our fa- 
thers have told us of ? Is he with us as with them ? Alas for the 
solemn and certain symptoms that he is leaving and forsaking of 
us: Is God with us in his Ordinances, or is he with us in the wayes 
of his Providences as sometimes ? Let us a little consider of 

I. Is God with us in his ordinances as sometimes? Two 
things here. 

1, Is God hearing and answering our Prayers as some- 
times ? Our former times have afforded us many evident answers 
of prayers, some memorable instances of which are upon publick 
record, to which more might be added; but how hath it been 
with us of latter days ? Have not our most solemn addresses unto 
God greatly failed us of those signal and speedy answers ? hath 
not God shut out ? yea seemed angry against the prayers of his 
people in the time of the Indian War ? and since have we not had 
matters of sorrowful observation as to this ? To omit other in- 
stances, that second and sorer flood that was upon this River, not 


two years since, falling out presently upon a day of publick fast- 
ing and prayer, as it is published to the world amongst remark- 
able Providences, so cannot but be to us of awful remembrance 
and remark as to what we are speaking ; God hath been nigh unto 
us in all things that we have called upon him for; yea, mercy hath 
prevent us; before we have called. God hath answered, and 
while we have been yet speaking he hath heard ; but now, alas, 
what cause to complain. We fast and he seeth not, we afflict our 
souls and he taketh no knowledge. 

2. Is God owning and influencing his Ordinances the ?neans 
of his Grace as sometimes? Was it once a truth (which that 
Reverend Person who Preached to you now eleven years since, 
upon this occasion told you) that our Sion had multitudes con- 
verted to her ? Hartford had so, New-haven had so, Windsor 
had so, and so had many other Churches in this Land; multi- 
tudes converted to them. How is it now? Are not our converts 
comparatively like the grape-gleani?igs of the vintage, now and 
then one comes dropping in. And me thinks also the word Sacra- 
ments and other Ordinances are deinforced as to what they have 
been ; God hath unclothed them, left them in a degree forsaken 
of his sometimes working power and virtue towards the souls of 
his own, they are net affected, humbled, quickened, raised, 
warmed, comforted by them, as sometimes they do not pros- 
per, thrive, flourish and bring forth fruit under them as hereto- 
fore ; they do not find them such a feast of fat things, and so full 
of marrow as in former days ; and can we have a sadder token of 
God's withdrawing and estranging himself from us than his fail- 
ing his Ordinances of the wonted influence of his spirit, both as 
to Conversion and Edification. 

2. Is God with us in the wayes of his Providences as some- 
times? How many wayes, and for how long a time hath God 
manifested his displeasure against us, his disfavour toward us ? 
'Tis evident by the operations of his hand that the affections of 
his heart are not to us as heretofore, for though it be a truth that 
afflictions upon particular persons may have other causes, yet it 
generally concluded that publick calamities are certain tokens of 
Divine displeasure: when God smites a Nation, a People, a Coun- 
try with War, Sickness, Famine, &c. They are undoubtedly 
testimonies of his anger: And how hath God done by us ? Hath 
not the sword gone through our Land ? hath not sore diseases had 
their annual returns upon us ? Yea, of late both Summer and 
Winter abode with us to the taking of many from us ? And 
how sadly hath God of late years smitten us in all the 


labours of our hands by blasting, mildews, catterpillars, worms, 
tares, floods aud droughts ? And truly not only for all this his 
anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still ; 
but in all this God seems to be making a way for his anger, that 
he may pour forth all his wrath. Observable is the way and 
manner of God's dealing with his People of old, and the method 
of his gradual proceeding against them, till at last he utterly re- 
jected and destroyed them. 'Tis said, 2 King 13, 23, God would 
not destroy them, neither cast them from his presence as yet. 
He had not yet done it, neither would he yet do it, but how even 
then he was making way for it: you may see, 2 King 12,32, He 
began to cut them short. And 2 Chron. 28, 19, He brought thetn 
low; and hath God begun to cut us short ? and doth he not go on 
to cut us shorter and shorter ? Hath he not brought us low ? 
And is he not still bringing us lower and lower ? How many 
wayes hath God been, and still is short cutting, and low-bringing 
of us ? He hath cut us short of our members, brought us low by 
taking away many, and many Righteous Ones from us ; hath he 
not (of late years especially) bereft us of many Magistrates, 
Ministers, and other useful Persons, and added that late fore 
breach, and causefully bitterly lamented loss to the rest ? And 
hath he not cut us short in our comforts, brought us low by de- 
priving us by one means and other of so much of the fruits of the 
earth ? We have sown much and brought in little ; sowen Wheat, 
Barley, good feed, but reaped Tares, Cockle, and such like trash ; 
The ancient curse for sin is revived, and heightened upon us. 
Under the rain that hath come oft upon us, and all the husbandry 
God hath been at with us, we have not brought forth fruit meet 
for him, by whom we have been dressed, and what measure we 
have meeted: it hath been measured to us again: under such 
means, and a promising, flourishing profession, little real fruit 
hath been biought forth to God; and how like to this have we 
found in that little good grain under goodly appearances, and a 
great burden that the earth hath brought forth to us ? And doth 
not the hand of God upon this account grow very awful toward 
us ? is not the meat cut off before our eyes ? do we not see men's 
crops fail them (at least in many places) year after year, and 
every year more than other ? Should God go on to do by us a 
few years more as he hath done for some years past, it would look 
apace toward cleanness of teeth. And hath God not cut us short 
of our credit and estimation ? brought us low upon that account also 
New-England' s name hath been much set by, much more than 
now New- England' s credit and repute is brought many pegs 


lower than sometimes; when we were precious in God's sight, we 
were honourable ; but when he makes no such account of a Peo- 
ple, they soon go out of credit ; God hath made us to know the 
truth of that, 1 Sam. 2, 30 (the subject that was insisted upon by 
that eminently holy man of God this time three years) them that 
honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall 
be lightly esteemed; we have found the truth of that, that 
them that honour God he will honour, and now God is verifying 
the truth of that also, that those that despise him shall be lightly 
esteemed: Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a re- 
proach to any People, Prov. 14, 24. And New- England' s for- 
mer and latter experiences may feel to both parts of the truth of 
that Text. Under all these short cutting, lowering, afflicting dis- 
pensations, may we not say in this day, as 'twas said, Israel 
should do in that, when many evils and troubles should befall 
them ? Dent. 31, 17. Are not these evils come upon us because 
our God is not amongst us ? is not with us as he hath been, nor 
favours us as he hath done. But I must pursue these things no 
further which I have been drawn forth to follow thus far, if possi- 
ble to make you sensible, both from the consideration of our 
wayes towards God and his wayes toward us, that according to 
the present frame and posture of things with us, it looks very ex- 
ceeding threateningly upon us, least God leave us and lay us 

3. Consider, Hotv sad would it be, should it come to this : it 
is evident from the considerations mentioned, that it may be so, 
and also that it looks exceeding threatningly, lest it be so ; but 
what a dismal thing would it be, should it be so indeed ! to lose 
God's love, his favour, his good will; to have his soul depart from 
us, what a dreadful thing would it be ! How emphatically doth 
God shut up sundry sore threatnings with this as the most miser- 
able complement of ! Yea, wo also unto them when I depart 
from them, PIos. 9, 12, that burden, Jer. 23, 33 (so it is there 
called) I will even forsake you, saith the Lord : it is the most 
intolerable, crushing, back-breaking Burden that was ever laid 
upon any people for God to disaffect, reject, forsake a people, it 
is the most formidable thing that can bef al them : In his favour 
is life, his loving-kindness is better than Life : it is the founda- 
tion, fountain and well-head of all our good ; all that good is, is 
originally, virtually and eminently contained in it, founded upon 
and flowing from it; but to be rejected of God, cast out of his af- 
fections, it is in itself the sorest judgment; it hath in it all that 
evil is, and it is the source of all that doth, or may, or can fall out 


sadly or unhappily to us: if we have God's heart we cannot want 
his hand: if he be with us, if he be for us, who or what shall be 
against us? If he cause his face to shine upon us, we shall be 
saved: but if he take off his heart, forsake, hide his face from us, 
we shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befal us, 
all kinds of calamities will crowd in ; mischiefs will be heaped 
upon us if God take his presence (and consequently his peace) 
from us, even loving-kindness and mercies : what will follow but 
that he will vex us with all adversity ; our wife-men will be infat- 
uated, our men of courage and activity dispirited, our peaceable 
and guidable men froward and headlong, nothing will prosper 
with us, but all things will conspire and work together ruineward ; 
counsel, strength, protection, sustenance, all will fail us: Sword, 
Sickness, Famine, evils of all sorts grow in upon, pursue and 
cleave unto us till they have consumed us. And further, let me 
here add that consideration, that should it come to this with us, 
God should take off his heart from us, turn his hand against us, it 
will certainly fall exceeding aggravatedly heavy up07i us. It 
will so eminently, in a two fold respect. 

i. // will be a sad and sorrowful thing indeed, when as it 
threatened, Josh. 24, 20, God shall turn and do us hurt, and 
consume us after that he hath done us good : Miser um est 

There is no greater misery than to have been happy ; it is more 
to be brought than to be born low, to be degraded than never to 
have been exalted: worse is so much the worse by how much we 
have known better: Thoic hast lifted me up and cast me down, 
saith the Psalmist, aggravating his affliction, Psal. 10, 2, 10. 
How art thou fallen from Heaven, Lucifer, Son of the 
Morning ? was the cutting question to the King of Babylon, in 
the day of his ruine, Isai. 14, 12. And it was the deapth of feru- 
salem's wo, that she came down wonderfully, Sam. 1, 9. Know, 
if you lose God you will be miserable many, many, that never 
knew what it was to enjoy him as you have done: When you 
have lost God, his love, his favour, and lost your all in that loss, 
then to look back and bemoan yourselves, that we were as in 
months past, when the Almighty was yet with us : then to re- 
member in the days of your affliction and misery all the pleasant 
things that you had in the days of old, then to lament that you 
once had a God, what a bitter, bitter and heart-breaking thing- 
will it be. 

2. When God turns to do a people hurt after he hath done 
them good, they may expect he will do them hurt according as 
he hath done them good, Deut. 28, 63. 


And it shall come to pass, that as the Lord rejoiced over yon 
to do yoti good and multiply you, so the Lord will rejoice over 
you to destroy you, and to bring you to naught : of whom God 
saith, you only have I known ; God hath an evil, an only evil for 
them, Ezek. 7, 5, For whom God hath done, that which he hath 
not done, against them will God do that which he hath not done, 
and whereunto he will not do any more the like, Ezek. 5, 9. 
The punishment of the inigtiity of the Daughter of my People 
is greater than the punishment of Sodom, Sam. 4, 6. Under 
the %vhole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon 
Jerusalem, Dan. 9, 12. There was no sorrow like that of Sion, 
wherewith the Lord afflicted her in the day of his fierce anger, 
Sam. 1, 12. Wo unto us when God (turning to do us hurt shall, 
come to measure us by the same Rule that he hath done us good 
by: Will not New-England then be made one of the blackest 
spots of earth under the heavens of God ? 

4. Consider, It may yet be prevented; and what mercy it is 
that it may so be in that things come not to this woful pass ? will 
we yet be perswaded to hearken to the counsel in the Text ? will 
we yet be instructed, bethink ourselves, repent, amend, convert, 
turn to God, he will not leave us, ae will not cause his anger to 
fall upon us: and wherein he hath so done, we returning unto 
him he will return with us : Doubtless God is spirited and acted 
toward us by the same Rule that himself gives us. Prov. 27, 10, 
Thine own friend and thy father s friend forsake not: God 
hath been our friend, and our father's friend, we have had (as I 
may say) his favour by inheritance ; because he loved our fathers, 
he hath chosen their seed after them, and loth he is both for our 
own and their sakes (his grace and mercy having descended thus 
upon us) to disinherit us, nor will he do it, if after all we yet 
prove not utterly uncounselable and incorrigible. The love and 
kindness of Neiu- En gland 's first times stick by him; all our 
back-slidings, unworthy carriages, evil requitals have not so 
wholly razed out the remembrance of it, but that God hath sensi- 
bly manifested even in the way of his judgment, many relentings 
of heart toward us, and would we yet be perswaded to recede our 
pursuit of vain things that cannot profit nor deliver, for they are 
vain, and unsaintly, and with our whole heart return to him, how 
would his bowels be moved for us ? his passions stirred up to meet 
us at our coming, and his heart knit unto us ? And think also what 
an act of grace it is that God will thus accept of, and re-entertain 
repenting and returning sinners ; it is a great act of grace for God 
totake any to be his People ; but it is a much greater to fall in 


again with those that have deeply revolted from him: O me- 
thinks such peerless, unpattern'd, unparrall'd mercy, as such it is 
proposed in the third chapter of this prophesie, vers, i, should 
melt, overcome, win upon the hearts of poor sinners ; thougJi we 
have played the harlot with many lovers will God yet receive 
us. O will he methinks, as persons overcome of mercy, our very 
souls should say, behold we come unto thee, for thou art the Lord 
our God. 

5. And lastly Consider, That if we be not instructed, continue 
incorrigible, irreclaimable, God will certainly leave us, his 
soul will depart from us, and he will make us desolate. We 
may natter ourselves in our own way until our iniquity be found 
to be hateful; bless ourselves in our hearts while God's anger 
smokes against us ; cry peace, peace, until remediless ruine come 
upon us, and there be no escaping ; but assuredly what God 
threatens, unless Repentance intervene, he will accomplish: Me- 
thinks it fares between God and New-England People, as be- 
tween a tender hearted Parent and an untoward, stuborn child; 
the poor afflicted Father, with many yearning bowels bespeaks ; 
yea, begs, beseeches him. O my son be instructed, be perswad- 
ed, bethink thyself, hearken to counsel ; and in the issue begins 
to tell him, well son, look to it, if thou goest on thus, and nothing 
will do with thee, thou wilt lose thy Father's heart at last, as 
well as I have loved thee, my affections will be wholly weened off 
from thee, I will disown, disinherit, turn thee out of doors; and 
shall it come to this between God and us, if we continue unin- 
structed it will come to this. We shall lose God's love, leave our- 
selves no more room in his affections, utterly harden his heart 
against us, work it to that issue, that God will thoroughly disaf- 
fect us, and what then ? Why, when God thoroughly disaffects a 
People, then as in Chap. 15 of this prophesie, vers. 1, 2, though 
Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind eould not be to- 
ward this People, cast them out of my sight, and let them go 
forth ; such as are for death to death and such as are for 
the sword to the sword, a?id such as for famine to famine, 
and such as are for captivity to captivity ; as if God should 
say, I cannot abide them, they have quite lost my heart, I 
I can no more affect them ; let who will intercede for them, away 
with them, let them dy, be slain, famished, captivated, no matter 
how many wayes, so they be any ways destroyed. This, even 
this will be the fatal upshot that our sins and rebellions will bring 
it to between God and us if we be not instructed. And now I be- 
seech you reflect upon what hath been said, lay together the 


considerations that have been laid before you, and think whether it 
be not high time to hearken to that awful, yet compassionate ad- 
monition of the Text, Be thou instructed O New-England, lest 
God's soul depart from thee, lest he make thee desolate, a land 
not inhabited: Methinks we should find ourselves concerned, and 
that all sorts of persons, as those that came to John Baptist, 
should be, asking what shall we do ? and what shall we do ; Mag- 
istrates, Ministers and Masters of Families, men of all ranks and 
conditions, should be earnestly enquiring what shall we do, and 
what shall we do as to the retaining and regaining the good will 
of God. and keeping his gracious presence with us ? And possi- 
bly it is expected (according to the ordinary use upon these occa- 
sions) that by way of answer I should apply myself to these and 
those, but the time takes me off. Much Honoured ; I know much 
lyes upon you (and although my haste be great) , let me call at 
your door with that of the Psalmist, Psal. 2, 10, 12, Be instruct- 
ed ye Judges of the Earth, kiss the Son; professedly and actu- 
ally own Jesus Christ, signalize your love and affection, your 
homage and subjection to him, even in such a day as this; what 
difficulties or hazards this may cast you upon, or what disfavour it 
may work you, or with whom it is my business to say, and I hope 
will be besides yours to consider, suffice it me to say, and you to 
think, that this is the way to the heart of God ; the way to get and 
keep in with him, which is the thing we are upon: O shew your 
love to Jesus Christ, your zeal for him, his cause, interest, wayes, 
People, all his concerns, and set yourselves against whatsoever is 
contrary thereunto, suppress sin, promote holiness to your utmost 
power. And let me only in general say, both to you, Right Hon- 
ourable, and to the Honourable Deputies with you, that make up 
the grand counsel of this poor colony (I know you have not been 
without deep thoughts of heart upon the account) if there be any- 
thing yet do-able as to these things, either by Law making, or 
Law executing, that may conduce to keep God with us, let it be 
diligently done. 

Nextly, I should have applyed myself to you, my dear and rev- 
erend Brethren in the Ministry you are set for the instruction of 
others, but it is not too much to be said to you (however it may 
seem too much for me to say it) be you also instructed. O look 
about you, it eminently concerns you, think what is yours to do, 
that it may not come to the parting pull between God and this 
People. I doubt not Brethren, could I lay my hand so near your 
hearts, I could find them in old Ely s posture trembling for the 
Ark of God, the God of the Ark, God and his Ark, his taking his 


presence from us, and the signal tokens of the same ; but what is 
ours to do that it may not be so, I know myself (though too little) 
too well to take upon me to direct you ; let me only say as the 
eyes of that Cripple, of whom you read, Acts 3, were upon Peter 
and John, the poor man looked wishfully upon them, hoping to 
receive somewhat from them, so my eyes, and the eyes of this 
poor People are (under God) upon you earuestly, expecting that 
you should do something for us, as the poor man in the Gospel, 
Mark 9, once solicited your great Lord and Master in his day 
upon earth for his woful sin ; let me bemoan to you the lament- 
able condition of this miserable people, thus and thus it is with 
us, and these and those means have been used with, and improved 
for us, but to no purpose, if you can do anything have compas- 
sion on us, and help us ; I know you are not in God's stead, but 
as I was saying, under God our eyes are upon you ; and I be- 
seech you remember that they are so. 

Again, give me leave in passing to drop a word to the Free- 
men ; be you also instructed as to the work of this day, as you 
would not have God depart from us, disregard us, do not disre- 
gard him in these grand motions, do not leave him out in your 
Elections : surely it is not the ingraciating way with God to give 
him cause to complain, as, Hos. 8, 4, They have set up Kings 
but not by me, and have made Princes and I know it not: have 
a respect to God in your Elections in having a respect to godli- 
ness: not that every godly man is fit to make a Magistrate, or 
every one that hath grace is fit to govern you may read, Exod. 
18, 21, That they must be able men, as well as fearing God, not 
only good, honest, well-minded, well-meaning men, but such as 
sit chief (that you sit in that place) had need to be able to chuse 
out the way of a People for the?n, Job 29, 25. Yea, and then 
when it comes to a Day of Difficulty, it is not only integrity of 
heart but skilfulness of hands that is required to the well man- 
agement of the reins of government, Psal . 78, ult. Yet surely 
Godliness is an essential qualification. Nor can you disregard it 
without disregarding God in your Elections, would you have 
God's heart with you ? chuse men of David's character, Acts 
13, 22. Men after God's own heart ; it may be in such a day as 
this there are many and great thoughts of heart, such a man is in 
favor, and such a man is so and so ; I have nothing to say against 
all prudential considerations (provided they always be pious) 
upon these accounts, if policy were unlawful Christ would never 
have bidden his Disciples to be wise as Serpents, Mar. 10, 16. 
Policy and Piety, the Serpent and the Dove, do as well together 


as they do ill asunder ; but what I have to say, and what the Doc- 
trine under hand leads me to say, is chuse Men in favour with Lhe 
King of Kings, who hath King's hearts in his hand to turn as he 
will, and can if men's wayes please him, make even their enemies 
be at peace with them. 

Heads of Families would have been next spoken to ; there is 
more than a little for them to do upon the great account we are 

I would also address myself to God's own dear ones amongst 
us (those few names comparatively that are yet left us) that are 
great and gracious with him, that they would have improved their 
outmost interest for us, who can do great things with God ; that 
they would desire mercies of the God of Heaven, I would have 
begg'd the very sinners of the times, that at last they would not 
thrust away God from us; but the time bids me have done. 

I shall conclude all with two or three words of Instruction and 

1. Let us make work into a thorough confession unto God; 
surely the want of this is our great wound, the core and root of 
all our maladies ; our next complying with the calls of his grace 
to a thorough, entire, irreserved closure with himself, hence have 
grown those estrangements between God and us, that now 
begin to look threateningly as to an utter parting ; and it is a 
thorough conversion unto God that must lay the foundation of our 
cure. I must confes the sense of this hath been so much with me, 
since the call to this daye's work was undoubtedly laid upon me, 
that I have had many thoughts to say neither of this nor of that 
but to turn the whole stream of my Discourse into this channel: 
O that you were to be prevailed with as to this, our work were 
done at once ; and is there no perswading you ? though not only 
God's gracious presence with you in this world, but your everlast- 
ing enjoyment of him in glory in that other world lies upon it: 
What shall I say to you sirs? I beseech you shew yourselves 
men, act but the part of reasonable creatures (which looks like a 
reasonable request), set but your understandings and thoughts 
seriously to work, and I profess to you, it is beyond my conceiv- 
ing (so doing) that you can be other than thorow, down-right 
Christians: a thinking man can not be but a serious man; 'tis the 
want of this that ruines men, Israel doth not know, my people 
doth not consider, Isai. 1, 3, in consideration is the undoing of men 
under means of knowledge ; men know enough, would they but con- 
sider what they know, to make them in good earnest about matters 
of greatest moment. I have a great request (to the unconverted I 


especially intend it, knowing some will do much more than I say) to 
make to this great congregation, and every person, I am under the 
present opportunity of speaking to, which I am never like to be in 
this world ; I have a great request to you, indeed, as to the thing 
desired, it is but a small matter, but my heart is much in it ; and 
I shall verily hope that this poor Sermon will not be utterly lost, 
if you will but grant it; I beseech you deny me not, and 'tis this 
that you would take some time to bethink yourselves of your 
greatest concernments ; and I would fain beg some time every 
day, but I will bring my request very low that I may not be 
denied ; shall I obtain of you that you will constantly set apart 
one half hour in a week ; be it on the Saturday night, or some- 
time, and getting alone, set yourselves to this with utmost serious- 
ness about the matters of your soul and your future and eternal 
states; would persons be perswaded thus to do, I do think it 
would be impossible for them to stand before their own thoughts: 
I doubt not but if men would give themselves leave to think 
what it would be to be in Heaven or Hell, for ever, it would 
bring them to themselves : And, O were we thorough here as to 
the work of Conversion, were the as yet utterly unconverted, but 
converted ; were the half converted, the almost perswaded, but 
altogether, but thoroughly converted, were the slight and for- 
mal, and such as have a name to live, the professionally convert- 
ed, but sincerely converted, were the converted, but so back- 
slidden, fallen, that they stand in need of renewed conversions, 
but reconverted: this would lay a foundation for the return and 
still continuance of God's giacious presence with us. 

2. Let us mightily stir tip ourselves to lay hold upon a de- 
parting God: It is a very lamentable complaint the Prophet 
makes, Jsa. 64, 7, that at such a time when God hid his face from 
them, and consumed them because of their iniquities ; yet there 
was none that called upon his Name that stirred up themselves 
to take hold of him. Shall God go, and we be silent ? Shall we 
see him going, and shall nothing be said to invite him back 
again ? Methinks our hearts should be at our mouthes, our very 
souls should sit upon our trembling lips, and we should even 
disolve into sighs and supplications. O that we may humble our- 
selves, greatly mourning over all the provoking causes of Divine 
displeasure: We may bemoan ourselves, sensibly lamenting 
after the Loid under all the hidings of his Face, and the 
estrangements of himself from us ; we may awaken ourselves ex- 
ceedingly, call up all our powers, put to our utmost strength, 
plead with God ; yet thou Lord are in the midst of us, and we 



are called by thy Name, leave us not ; wrestle it out with God, 
and resolve we will not let him go; thus do, and though you have 
gone far from him, return yet again to the Lord, cleave to him 
with purpose of heart, and you shall find (though he hath made 
many offers that way) yet God will not leave you. 

3. And lastly, Be on God's side, espouse his interest, be you 
ingaged in every cause that is his, own what God owns, and own 
whom God owns, be not ashamed to appear for him, his wayes, 
worship, people, however it may befal ; what though the world 
turn a back-side upon these things (you know Moses his choice) 
let us cast in our lot here : when the Persian Empire favored the 
Church, the Samaritans would help build the Temple, and when 
the Mordecai was great at court, many people of the land became 
Jews; but God knows such fair-weathered friends, and makes 
reconing of them accordingly; but that's the man God will own, 
that Jesus Christ will own, that is not ashamed of him nor of his 
words before a f roward and adulterous generation : that I say is 
the man Christ will own at that day when to be owned by him, 
will be found worth cf now owning of him at dearest rates: be it 
that the tempest-tost, weather-beaten, and well neigh shipwrecked 
state of the Church of Christ in an angry world, be as the Ship 
wherein himself with his Disciples were imbarked, when in that 
mighty storm that came down upon the lake, they were even 
filled with water, and now ready to sink. My mite shall be cast 
in here, as the Lord shall help me, my interest, my title, all what 
it is, sink or swim, shall be ventured in this bottom ; and I be- 
seech you, let us all put in here, have we not much greater and 
better assurances than the trembling Marine that was told he car- 
ried Cesar in his Barge ? Wo to us if an hour of temptation dis- 
cover another spirit in us ; but if the Lord shall help us, owning, 
cleaving to and abiding with him to approve ourselves in the day 
of tryal ; and though we have fate too loose to him, and grown 
slight and wanton in our prosperous times, nevertheless in an evil 
day there shall be good things found in us, there will yet be hope 

in our end.

DEV. SAMUEL WAKEMAN, on September 3, 
*^ 1663, purchased of Humphrey Hide the dwelling 
house that sometimes was the house of Thomas Dem- 
mond, deceased, with his home lot adjoining, being in 
quantity three acres, being more or less, bounded on 
the northwest and southwest with the highways, on the 
northeast with the lot of Robert Turney, on the south- 
east with the lot that sometimes pertayned to James 
Bennett, deceased. Alsoe one parcel of land over the 

Mr. Wakeman came to Fairfield with means, and by 
purchase and grant became owner of considerable real 
estate. He lived in a house (afterward occupied by 
Dr. Hull) that stood near the street in front of the resi- 
dence where General Parker lived. The house had a 
window each side of the front door, the door being in 
the center of the front of the house, with a front room 
on each side of door. There was an enclosed vestibule 
outside of front door, and diamond-paned windows in 
either side of the vestibule. There were rooms on the 
second floor in front (See cut.) 

The cut of the house given here is from a photo of 
one now standing in Cohassett, Mass. It is said to be 
almost an exact duplicate of the house of Rev. Samuel 
Wakeman. The latter was torn down about 1838, and 
Miss Hannah Hobart, of Fairfield, is the authority for 
the resemblance of the two houses, as she not only re- 
members Mr. Wakeman 's house, but also a picture of 


it, which was hanging in Miss Hull's house in Fairfield, 
Conn., up to about 1880. 

Mr. Wakeman also owned the property where Mr. 
Wetherbee's house stands. Rev. Mr. Wakeman 's wife 
was daughter of Deputy Governor Stephen Goodyear, 
who was one of the first settlers of New Haven, and 
was a man of means and prominence. 

It is supposed that he came from London, and that 
he had been a merchant there. He was engaged in 
commerce while in New Haven, and was associated with 
Mr. John Wakeman in building or buying a ship and 
using it for commercial purposes. It started on its 
first trip in January, 1646, Mr. Lamberton being mas- 
ter. Mrs. Goodyear was a passenger, and the ship 
was never after heard of, and as one consequence, Mr. 
Goodyear married Mrs Lamberton. Mr. Goodyear 
was Deputy Governor of the Colony, elected annually 
from the first settlement, until he went to London, and 
was second only to Eaton. When the latter died Mr. 
Goodyear was in London, where he had gone to live, 
and this was the only reason for his not being elected 

He was rated at $5,000, and had nine persons in his 
family. He had 350 acres of land in New Haven, and 
paid over nine pounds in rates on it annually. 

In 165 1 he sold Shelter Island, which he had owned 
for about ten years, for 1,600 pounds of muscovado 
sugar. This was unrefined sugar from the Barbadoes. 

His farm was north of New Haven, near Pine Rock, 
and when the establishing of a college at New Haven 
was first considered, Mr. Goodyear offered to give his 
house and lot for its use. 

He was connected with John Winthrop in establish- 
ing iron works in 1655 at the outlet of Lake Saltonsall, 
near New Haven, the ore being dug from the bogs of 
North Haven, and taken in part down the Quinnipiac 
river in boats. He died in London prior to 1658. 


The following copies of the patent of Fairfield and 
the New Fairfield grant will be of interest, as showing 
onr ancestors' connection therewith. 


The General Court of Connecticut hath formally granted to the 
proprietary of the inhabitants of the town of Fairfield all those 
lands, both meadow and upland, within these abutments upon the 
sea towards the south about five miles in breadth, and in length 
from the sea into the wilderness 12 miles, and upon Stratford 
bounds on the east, and the wilderness on the north, and in Nor- 
walk bounds on the west (only a parcel of land between their 
bounds and Saugatuck river that is likewise granted to said Fair- 
field, provided the said Saugatuck do not exceed two miles from 
the said Fairfield) : the said lands having been by purchase or 
otherwise lawfully obtained of the Indians, native proprietors. 
And whereas the proprietary, the aforesaid inhabitants of Fair- 
field in the Colony of Connecticut, have made application to the 
Governor, and Council of said Colony of Connecticut, assembled 
in Court May 25, 1685, that they may have a patent for confirma- 
tion of the aforesaid land so purchased and granted to them as 
aforesaid, and which they have stood seized and quietly possessed 
of for many years last past without interruption. Now for a more 
full confirmation of the aforesaid tract of land as it is butted and 
bounded as aforesaid, unto the present proprietors of the said 
township of Fairfield in the possession and enjoyment of the 
premises. Know ye, that that the said Governor and Council 
assembled in General Court according to the Commission granted 
to us by His Majesty in our Charter, have given, granted, and by 
these presents do give, grant, ratify and confirm unto Major 
Nathan Gold, Mr. Saimtel Wakeman, Jehu Burr, John Burr, 
Thomas Staples, John Green, Joseph Lockwood, John Wheeler, 
Richard Hubbell, George Squire, Isaac Wheeler, and the rest of 
the present proprietary of the township of Fairfield, their heirs, 
successors, and assigns, forever according to the tenor of East 
Greenwich in Kent, in free and common socage, and not by 
capitte or Knight service, they to make improvement of the same 
as they are capable, according to the custom of the country, 
yielding, rendering and paying therefor to their Sovereign Lord 
the King, his heirs and successors, his due according to Charter. 

In witness whereof, we have caused the seal of the Colony to be 
herewith affixed, this 26th of May, 1685, in the first year of our 


Sovereign Lord, James the Second of England, Scotland and Ire- 
land, King, Defender of the Faith, etc. By order of the General 
Court of Connecticut. 


Robert Treat, Governor. 
John Allen, Secretary. 


At a General Assembly holden at New Haven, Oc- 
tober the 9th, 1707, and continued by several adjourn- 
ments to the end of the seventeenth day of the same 
month : 

" Upon the petition of Capt. Nathan Gold, Mr. Peter Burr, 
Capt. John Wakeman, John Edwards, Jonathan Sturgis, John 
Barlow, Gideon Allin, Samuel Wilson, Samuel Jinnings, Moses 
Dimon and Joseph Wakeman, all inhabitants of Fairfield, in be- 
half of themselves and associates, for a certain tract of land to be 
for a township, lying north of and near to Danbury, bounded 
southerly on Danbury, running thence northerly fourteen miles; 
bounded easterly on New Milford, westerly on the colonie line: 
This Court grants to them, the said petitioners and their asso- 
ciates, their heirs and assigns forever, the aforesaid tract of land 
for a township, provided it doth not prejudice any former grants ; 
to be under such regulations for the settlement thereof, and the 
number of inhabitants as this Court shall judge fit." (P. 34, Col. 
Rec, 1706-1716.) 

There appears to have arisen some sort of a dispute 
over the exact extent or meaning of the grant, and the 
Assembly was called upon to define exactly what rights 
the grantees had, and it appears that the patent was not 
finally granted until about 1740. it is generally under- 
stood and stated by historians that, owing to certain ir- 
regularities, or for some other cause, no settlement of 
the town was made until more than twenty years after 
the grant was made, that is, about 1730, and exactly 
who these settlers were no state records that I can find 
informs us definitely. 


After the grant by the General Assembly in 1707 
there is no reference in the records that I can find of 
the new town of New Fairfield until at the General As- 
sembly in Hartford in May, 1723, when Robert Silla- 
man, Richard Hubbell (Martha Hubbell's father), Ben- 
jamin Fairweather and others, asked that the grant of 
1707 be more fully explained, " whether by said act the 
patent of said land was to them granted, or how said 
act was to be understood." The assembly decided to 
continue the matter for decision to the October session, 
when the grantees were ordered to appear and state 
what had been done regarding the act granting them 
the land. There the matter appears to have been 
dropped, for there is no reference to the matter having 
come up at the October session. At the May session, 
1729, the memorial of Edward Lewis, of Stratford, 
'-Agent for the Proprietors of New Fairfield," was 
presented, and the consideration deferred until the Oc- 
tober term. 

Previous to this, in October, 1728, the Assembly 
voted " that all that tract of land called New Fairfield, 
lieing north of Danbury, west of New Milford and east 
of the Government land, shall be annexed to the county 
of Fairfield." 

In May, 1735, the proprietors of New Fairfield ap- 
peared before the General Assembly, "representing 
the objections and difficulties they have heretofore met 
with in their application for further confirmation of said 
tract to them by reason of objections made by some of 
the inhabitants of Fairfield," and asked that a commit- 
tee be appointed to inquire into the matter. 

The committee was appointed and ordered to report 
in October at the next Assembly on what they "think 
proper to be done in order to further confirm and settle 
said tract according to grant made by the Assembly in 


In October, 1736, the committee reported, and "it 
was resolved, that if persons named in the grant, or 
their heirs or assigns, shall settle on the tract so many- 
good inhabitants as will make fifty families within three 
years time, a patent shall be granted to them;" as is 
seen by the following act of the Assembly: 

Whereas this Assembly, at their sessions in October, 
1707, did grant to Nathan Gold, Peter Burr and others, 
of Fairfield, and their associates, a certain tract of land 
for a township, bounded southerly on Danbury, and 
and running from thence northerly fourteen miles; 
easterly it bounds on New Milford, westwardly on the 
Colony line; provided it doth not prejudice former 
grants, and be under such regulations for the settle- 
ment thereof and number of inhabitants as this Court 
shall think fit: And whereas sundry persons, claiming 
a right by said grant, have moved to this Assembly for 
a patent for said lands : It is therefore resolved by this 
Assembly that, provided the persons mentioned in the 
grant, their associates, heirs or assigns, shall settle on 
said lands so many good inhabitants as will make up in 
the whole fifty families within three years next coming, 
that then and in that case a patent for those lands shall 
be granted and executed to the persons mentioned in 
the grant, their associates, heirs, or assigns, and such 
settlers their heirs and assigns as shall be settled as 

In May, 1737, the power was granted to the town to 
hold meetings and divide the tract as the grantees saw 
fit, and in May, 1740, town privileges were granted and 
the town named New Fairfield. 





KNOW all men by these presents that we whose names are 
underwritten for divers good cause and conciderations espe- 
cially us answering thereunto, have and by these presents do for 
ourselves, heirs, executors, and assigns, freely give, grant, and 
bestow upon and to our loving brother, Jabez Wakeman, all our 
right, title and interest in and to all the estate of our brother, 
Ebenezer Wakeman, dec. : be it law or whatever else properly 
called his estate : We say we have given our right to as anywise 
belonging to us in the aforesaid estate unto our brother, Jabez 
Wakeman, and to his heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, 
to have hold and improve as his own proper estate from the day 
of this date hereof forever, as witness our hands and seals in 
the sixth year of their Majesties' Reign.

From O'Callaghan's Documentary History of New 
York, page 215, we learn that Ebenezer Wakeman 
was one of the soldiers who went with Captain Gabriel 


Thompson to Albany. This was probably the Wood 
Creek expedition. 

This Ebenezer must have been the son of Rev. Sam- 
uel Wakeman, and died in 1690. 

The following data regarding Rev. Jabez Wakeman, 
son of Rev. Samuel, is of interest. It was procured by 
Mr. Emory McClintock : 

PP. 106-109. 

' ' Jabez Wakeman was about fourteen years of age when his fa- 
ther died, and in the will direction is given that he be kept at 
school and enter college the next August. The delay of a year, 
however, seems to have occurred, for we find by the catalogue of 
Harvard College — "the college," as the will denominates it — that 
he was graduated in the year 1697. About a year and four months 
after this date, the people of Newark, wishing to obtain an as- 
sistant for their worthy pastor, had their attention turned towards 
this young graduate, and appointed a committee to treat with Mr. 
Wakeman and Mr. Prudden for that purpose. But the resigna- 
tion of Mr. Prudden, which took place early in June following, 
gave a new aspect to affairs, and shortly afterwards measures 
were adopted to secure Mr. Wakeman's services as a candidate for 
the pastoral office. He was first engaged to preach in that ca- 
pacity for a year, but scarcely was the year half out before the 
ardor of the people pressed the question to an issue, and at a 
meeting held on the 15th of April, 1700, ' it was particularly in- 
quired of every person whether they desired Mr. Jabez Wakeman 
to be called to the pastoral office in this town, and they every one 
manifested their willingness thereto, and also voted the same.' " 

"The salary of Mr. Wakeman was, at first, ^60, but it was 
soon after raised to ^80, the same with that of the two Piersons. 
* * * # A subscription was also raised to procure for him a 
' settlement,' that is a homestead or ' accommodations,' as in the 
case of his predecessor ; in pursuance of which a house and its 
appurtenances were purchased and presented to him by a deed of 
gift, 'as the town's act and deed.' 

"Mr. Wakeman became the sole pastor of this congregation at 
the early age of about twenty-one years. He was a young man 
of great promise, amiable, accomplished, and remarkably popular 
in the pulpit. The attachment of the people to their young and 


talented pastor appears to have been deep and tender. Under his 
ministry the congregation became so much increased that addi- 
tional accommodations were required for public worship, and the 
town ordered a gallery to be built across the north end of the 
meeting house. But the hopes of the people and the fair earthly 
prospects of the young minister and his family were destined to 
an early reverse. In the autumn of the year 1704 that fearful 
malady, the dysentery, prevailing in a fatal form among the 
people invaded his family. His little son Samuel, a child of two 
years old, and an only one, died on the 29th of October ; and only 
nine days later the father followed, leaving a childless widow and 
a disappointed flock to shed tears over his early grave." 

From the same, foot note to page no; tombstone 
near church : 

" Here lye the Remains of ye Revd. Mr. Jabez Wakeman, the 
faithful pastor of ye Church of Christ in this place, who Departed 
this life, Octr. 8th, 1704. ^Etatis 26. 

" Hoc sunt tumulo Wakeman venerabilis ossa. 

" By him lies his son, Samuel, died Sept. 29, 1704. ^Etatis 2d."

* Different from all the professional writers of his day was Joseph Den- 
nie, the "American Addison," as his friends delighted to call him. Life 
with him was at the best a play ; and one cannot wander far in the rough, 
uncleared 1 pathways of our early literature without coming often into the 
warmth and sunshine of his presence. He was a native of Boston, and

nice, who d. Oct. 6, 1740; and second Sarah, 

a classmate of the elder Quincy. His early reputation was made in the 
Farmer's Museum of Walpole, N. H., 1795-1797, and was continued in the 
Portfolio at Philadelphia from 1800 to 1812. He was an elegant scholar, 
a graceful and pleasing writer, charming in conversation, a most winning 
and delightful companion. His literary work, though universally read and 
extravagantly praised at the time, proved ephemeral, like that of most of 
his profession. His most famous essays, printed under the title of " The 
Lay Preacher," touching with pleasant satire and amiable philosophy on 
the follies and foibles of the time, mixed with not a little serious counsel and 
good criticism, are now as if they had never been. In their day they were 
famous. All the newspapers were in hot rivalry with each other to get the 
first printing of them. The were compared to the writings of Addison and 
Steele, and they made the young writer the center of the most interesting 
group of wits and scholars then on the stage. Though a graduate of Har- 
vard College, for some unaccountable reason he hated the college and de- 
spised the faculty, and he delighted in making them the object of his satire. 
He studied law, and began to practice ; but one day a client came in while 
he was more agreeably occupied, and irom that time till he abandoned the 
profession he kept his office door locked on the inside. The late Edmund 
Quincy, in the fascinating biography of his father, speaks of the Portfolio 
as "far superior to any magazine ever before attempted in this country" — 
"a model of exact and careful editorship, and greatly beneficial in raising 
the standard of literary taste in the country." It was strongly federalist in 
its politics, and the most eminent federalist writers and statesmen did not 
consider it beneath their dignity to contribute to its pages. While Dennie 
lived in Philadelphia he was the soul of its gay, convivial society, and his 
name still lives in its traditions. Tom Moore was one of his many guests, 
wrote songs for the Portfolio, and joined in the nightly festivities. In one 
of his poems relating to America I recall the lines: 
" Yet, yet forgive me, O ye sacred few, 
"Whom late by Delaware's green banks I knew ; 
Whom, known and loved through many a social eve, 
'Twas bliss to live with, and 'twas pain to leave. 
Not with more joy the lonely exile scanned 
The writing traced upon the desert's sand, 
Where his lone heart but little hoped to find 
One trace of life, one stamp of human kind, 
Than did I hail the pure, th' enlighten'd zeal, 
The strength to reason and the warmth to feel, 
The manly polish and the illumin'd taste, 
Which — 'mid the melancholy, heartless waste 
My foot has travers'd — O you sacred few ! 
I found by Delaware's green banks with you." 
Joseph Dennie died, in 1812, at the early age of 44 years. The Portfolio 
did not long survive him.

17. IX. Stephen, 4 b. i7i6;bap. March 10, 1717; 
d. March 23, 1760. Captain Joseph 
Wakeman was a man of prominence 
and business ability. He was ap- 
pointed Lieutenant by the Council, 
Dec. 13, 1704. (Queen Anne's War.) 
See Col. Rec. Conn., Vol. IV., p. 497. 
He was appointed Captain in Fairfield, 
May, 1708 (see copy of Military Com- 
mission, p. 144). He was also ap- 
pointed Oct., 1709, a member of com- 
mittee of war for the County of Fair- 
field, to take care for the defence of the 
frontier towns within said County, and 
of Wianteus or New Milford, and shall 
have full power to act and order for 
the defence of the said frontier against 
the assault of the enemy, as they shall 
judge needful. He was also appointed 
member of a committee to consider 
" the desire of assistance by Governor 
of Massachusetts Bay on the war with 
Eastern Indians," October, 1722. He 
also served as member of a committee 
on New York boundary, October, 17 13. 
He was also appointed member of a 
committee of both houses which made 
recommendations for securing our 
frontiers, May, 17 12. He was elected 
Justice for Fairfield many times, and 
Probate Judge and Judge of County 
Court. He was a member of the Gov- 
ernor's Council in 1724 and 1725. He 
served as Deputy from Fairfield, to 
the General Court for 28 sessions, from 
1705 to 1722, and was appointed

assistant in May, 1724, and in May, 
1725. He left an estate of over 5,000 
pounds, including his house in Greens- 
farms, of which we give a picture, and 
also a house in Fairfield village. 
The house of Captain Joseph Wakeman, now standing 
in Greensfarms (Westport), Connecticut, formerly 
a part of Fairfield, was built about the year 1700. 
It was occupied by Captain Wakeman, and by his 
lineal descendants by the name of Joseph, for four 
succeeding generations. After the death of the 
widow of the latter Joseph, it was sold to A. Jen- 
nings, and is now used as a storehouse. It was a 
stately mansion in its day, with stone steps and 
stone walled terrace in front. Its timbers are 
eighteen inches square, with heavy floor joists. The 
kitchen is long and low, wainscoted to the win- 
dows set high in the wall. The front rooms are fif- 
teen by twenty feet, with nine foot ceilings ; doors 
forty inches wide ; windows forty-two inches, with 
twenty-four panes, eight by ten inches each. Every- 
thing betokens the wealth of the owner. On the 
southern side of the chimney is the old dining room ; 
here the sideboard held his silver tankard and cups. 
The staircase has a low balustrade of turned wood, 
the caps of the newel posts being carved. In the 
lesser attic the slaves had their quarters, and the 
attic story over-hangs on three sides which enabled 
the occupants to shoot at the Indians most any time 
without much risk. One of the front chambers held, 
during the Revolution, much British gold (as the 
English officers made their headquarters here at 
the time), and the daughter of the house who at- 
tended to the room thought that she would like a 
little of it and put one coin under each bed post, 
but it was discovered. This house and that of his 
son Stephen, and grandson Captain Stephen, were 
the only houses in Greensfarms that were not 
burned by the British ; Captain Stephen's being left 
because of some kindness he showed some prisoners, 
but he was half sorry it was not burned as he feared 
that his neighbors would think that he was a Tory.

Mary (Wakeman) Hazzard was sent to Bos- 
ton, to complete her education and as she 
had to go by stage coach, it is supposed 
that she met John Hazzard at some stop- 
ping place in Rhode Island, where the 
family lived. She was very handsome and 
accomplished, and became proficient in 
dancing, among other things, and this did 
not exactly suit the staid people of Greens- 
farms. Her father was the richest Wake- 
man of that century, so far as known, and 
her grandfather, Joseph, came next in 
point of wealth, but was much the most 
prominent in public life. Her second hus- 
band, Moss Kent, was father of the well 
known Chancellor Kent, of New York.

the De Burgh family, one of the oldest in Ireland. 
They were originally Crusaders, and Sir Herbert 
DeBurgh is mentioned at the Siege of Acre, in Pal- 
estine. He fought with Richard Coeur de Lion. 
Their names are in the Domesday book. The De- 
Burgh's were originally of French extraction. 
Henry III of England, appointed one of his nobles — 
Sir Herbert DeBurgh to take charge of Ireland. 
He was given control of Connaught and settled in 
Galway. They were Earls in those days. Their 
estates were confiscated by Cromwell and they be- 
came adherents of the Stuarts. The estates were 
afterwards restored.

Daniel Chapman, son of the Greensfarms minister 
was his classmate ; President Burr was one year 
with him in College ; so also was Daniel Bucking- 
ham. Probably Mr. Wakeman's knowing him was 


the means of introducing him in Greensfarms as 
minister in 1742. In those days students' names 
were arranged in the Catalogue according to the 
social position of their families. It is a noteworthy- 
fact that Mr. Wakeman's name stands head of his 
class as did that of his brother Ebenezer in 1720.

tain Beardsley's company, of New Fairfield, Conn., un-

upper Hudson. When he and John Hendricks returned 
from the war, they first arrived at the house of Hen- 
dricks, but found no one there, so they went across the 
lots to Wakeman 's home where they found Mrs. Hen- 
dricks helping Mrs. Wakeman in spinning yarn and the 
boys and girls were all helping Jeremiah harvest the 
buckwheat. David had much ground prepared for corn 
in the spring before he went to war, and as Jeremiah 
could not take care of it all, if planted, he utilized some 
of it with buckwheat. So that while David did not 
leave his plow in the furrow, he left corn unplanted. 
The two families of Wakeman and Hendricks helped 
each other during the war. He m. Feb. 17, 1754, in Fair-

This old and traditionally well known tree is now 
standing on the second cross highway, the present 
boundary line between Fairfield and Easton, and is 
a large and old tree that dates back to earliest Col- 
onial times. The land opposite the tree belongs to 
the family of John Wakeman, who died Nov. 1897. 
He inherited the property in the direct line of de- 
scent from Capt. John Wakeman, who in turn re- 
ceived it from the estate of his father, Rev. Samuel 
Wakeman, to whom it had been granted from the 
public Colonial lands. This is an unusual case of 

Still standing on land granted to Rev. Samuel Wakeman. 


land remaining in the same family for over 200 
years. The tree has been known as the "Wake- 
man Chestnut Tree" for generations, and is un- 
doubtedly much older than 200 years, and is one of 
the original forest trees of the Colony. The late 
Rev. Samuel Nichols used to say that when he was 
a boy and went to school he often ate his dinner 
under its shade, and when he was an old man he 
said that he could see little difference in the size of 
the tree then from what it was in his boyhood 
(about 1810).

Asa Squire was a British soldier and moved with his

three children, and lived in a log house for several 
years. They had not a chair in the house for three 
years after they went there. They raised their grain 
and had to go forty miles to a grist mill. She used 
up all the thread she carried with her and then 
raveled out her cotton stockings for thread to use. 
Her nearest neighbor was a mile away. Her father 
was not in favor of the match, but gave him all the 
land he would clear up. He afterwards moved to

34. Gideon Wakeman, & of Bedford, N. Y., was a 
graduate of Yale, 1759, and was the hero of the Hasty 
Pudding story. 

The Hasty Pudding story is about as follows: One 
day when Gideon Wakeman was about to go to his 
class in college for recitation, he had occasion to 
pass through the kitchen, where an old mammy 
was making hasty pudding, and as he was always 
bent on some mischief, together with an abiding 
desire to raise Cain generally, he hastily filled his 
pockets with the hot hasty pudding concoction, and 
with bulging pockets, proceeded sedately into the 
class room. Instantly the professor exclaimed: 
"What have you in your pockets, sir?" "Pud- 
ding, professor." "What?" "Pudding, sir." 
Thereupon the irate professor rushed down upon 
Gideon, exclaiming, "I'll pudding you!" and 
thrust his hand deep into Gideon's pocket. What 
followed can be imagined, for in 1759 "our spe-

the estate of the said Gideon Wakeman, after do- 
ing three years service from the present date, this

of the said Gideon Wakeman.

4 J. Capt. Stephen Wakeman, 5 of Greensfarms, 
Conn. , and Balston Spa. , N. Y. , served in the Colonial 
troops, being appointed ensign in the 4th Conn. Regt., 
October, 1769, and lieutenant May 1774. He also 
served in the Revolution, and was appointed captain of 
the 6th Company, 4th Regt., January, 1778, Col. Whit- 
ing's Regt., 4th Militia, Lieut. -Col. Jonathan Dimon, 
and served at Peekskill, 1777. Captain Stephen Wake- 
man, who served before and during the Revolution, 
lived in Greensfarms in an old house back of where Mr. 


Fairchild now lives. He sold this place in March, 
1789. In the deed he is mentioned as of Balston, N.Y., 
where he had been to found a new home, from which 
trip he returned to Greensfarms with his daughter 
Mary on horseback, and received the money for his old 
home. Before leaving Greensfarms he called on Sarah 
Whitehead, who was engaged to his son Stephen (she 
m. him June 29, 1789), and expressed the pleasure 
they felt that she would soon join them in their new 
home. His daughter Mary preferred to return by boat 
on the Hudson, so he started to go on horseback, and 
stopped at Squire Adam's inn in Weston. Miss Grace 
Cable was staying there at the time, and has told her 
descendants her recollections of it: that Asa Belden, 
of Wilton, was also there that day, and after a pleasant 
stay Capt. Wakeman started to go, but was urged to 
remain over night. He said no, that he wanted to join 
Short Molly that night; so he went out and saddled his 
horse and started. Asa Belden went out immediately 
after, and Mr. Wakeman was never seen again. As he 
did not return to his home at Burnt Hills, near Balston 
Spa, his wife went to Connecticut on horseback to find 
him, taking her son Stephen with her. At Albany they 
consulted a clairvoyant, who told them that Capt. 
Wakeman had purchased a couple of speckled handed 
jackknives for his boys. She gave them a few more 
statements and asked them to come again, but that they 
must keep it in confidence. They found the purchase 
of the jackknives was true, but did not keep quiet; so 
when they returned she refused to tell any more. An- 
other account says that Belden overtook him, or way- 
laid him with an axe that he was cutting wood with, 
and when Capt Wakeman spoke of the fine springs at 
Balston, replied that he had one that was fine, and 
wanted Capt. Wakeman to drink of it, and while he was 
drinking, Belden killed him and threw his body in an 


old well and filled it up (some say it was an old mine). 
It was also said years after that Belden was trying to 
cheat his sister, Mrs. Hull, of Redding, out of her pat- 
rimony, and in her anger she accused him of murdering 
Capt. Wakeman, and said she washed his bloody shirt. 
He was arrested, and she gave evidence against him in 
court. Then he settled with her, and she signed a 
libel, and asserted that her statements were made in 
anger and wholly false; so nothing could be done. 
Some time after this Belden was taken sick, and wanted 
to have Mrs. Wakeman sent for, but his family would 
not consent, as they said that he was crazy. He seemed 
to be in great distress of mind, and the doctor said that 
it was some secret that he wished to reveal, and that 
he should have a chance to do so. He said that he 
could not die in peace until he had confessed it to the 
doctor, whom he told about killing Capt. Wakeman, 
and putting the body in a well and filling it up. After 
Belden was dead, the doctor had the well dug out to 
satisfy himself of the truth of the story, and found the 
bones there, but none of the money was recovered. 
Moses Jennings was hired to care for Belden during his 
illness, and was put under bonds not to reveal anything 
Belden might say. Belden died in 1828 or 1829. 

Capt. Wakeman stopped at his sister's, Mrs. Benja- 
min Banks, of Greenfield, and started from there on his 
return trip to Balston Spa. Mrs. Craft says that w T hen 
she was in Wilton she learned for a fact that Belden 
buried the body of Capt. Wakeman under that part of 
his house where there was no cellar, and it is said that 
Belden 's bed stood over this place. 

It is said that when Asa Belden was ill he had a 
young man who was a neighbor of his write a letter for 
him to Benjamin Banks or his wife, and that in this 
letter Belden made confession of the murder of Capt. 
Stephen Wakeman, and that the body would be found 
under a certain heap of stones. 


This young man is also said to have written or told 
Mr. Banks that he had better put an attachment on Mr. 
Belden's place. It is also said that some of the Belden 
family got wind of this letter, and went to Mr. Banks, 
who was old, and got possession of the letter. 

The papers that disappeared with Capt. Wakeman 
caused his family much trouble, as some were receipts 
for money that had to be paid again. Capt. Wakeman 
deeded, April 20, 1789, land in Weston to his wife 
Mary. This land came from her father. She sold it in 
1 791 to John and Samuel Lord.

5 J. Jeremiah Wakeman, 6 of New Fairfield, Conn, 
served in the Revolution as private in Capt. Hickox's 
Co., Third Regt., Conn. Light Horse, under Major 
Starr. He enlisted at Danbury, Aug. 20, 1780, and 
was discharged Jan. 1, 1781. His regiment was one of 
the four organized in May, 1776, from the twenty-four 
troops of Light Horse then in existence. When his 
father, David Wakeman, returned home from the war 
he was too fatigued to help his son gather the crops, and 
when Jeremiah wanted to enlist, his father would not 
consent that he should go in the militia on account of 
the great hardships, but when there was a call for 
mounted men, Jeremiah was allowed to go and join the 
troops, and served much longer than his father. He m.

66*- Abijah Wakeman, 6 of Greenfield, was a soldier 
in the war of 18 12, in October and November, 18 14. 
His father gave him a vessel which he built for him 
when Abijah was eighteen. He worked hard to build 
the boat, going on horseback after his day's work was 
done, to the forge in Redding, to get iron and bring- 
ing back what he could. The vessel was lost after a few 
trips; Mr. Sturges was captain. Abijah then came 
home, learned saddle-making and moved to New York 
state. He m. May 27, 1802, Mary Buckley (b. 1788;

IV. Caroline, 7 b. Feb. 11, 1818; d. Oct. 28, 

She died at her brother's at Oyster Bay, N. Y., and 
was a native of Greenfield Hill. Under circum- 
stances of singular difficulties she prepared herself 
as a teacher and was sustained by the convictions 
of early piety and the friends they gained for her. 
In commencing her career as a teacher in New York 
City, and vicinity, she began her public work with 
Principal McElligott of the old Mechanics School, 
which antedated and helped to prepare for the suc- 
cess of our public school system. For many years 
after it was suspended she conducted, very success- 
fully, a school for young ladies in New York City. 
She was active in the sunday school of the Presby- 
terian church under the pastorship of Drs. Potts, 
Philips and J. W. Alexander, at Duane and Church 
streets, who upheld at that day, on the west side of 
the city, the cause of religion and education. They 
were the active supports of a widespread influence, 
the results of which still survive, although its pro- 
moters seem to have vanished as completely as the 
old church. She afterwards conducted a parochial 
school near New Hamburgh, N. Y., and later 
taught in Astoria, N. Y., until failing health pre- 
vented. She will be remembered by those who 
knew her for her faithful and consistent Christian 
life and her devotion to the duties of every situa- 
tion in which she was called to act.

rules and discipline of war, in pursuance of the 
trust reposed in you ; and for so doing, this shall 
be your Commission for and during our pleasure to 
be signified by our Council of Appointment. 
In testimony whereof, we have caused our seal for 

Military Commissions to be hereunto affixed.

Wakeman, 6 served in the Revolutionary

State of New York, / 

> ss. : 
Sullivan Co. ) 

On the tenth day of October, one thousand eight hundred and 
thirty-two, personally appeared in open Court before the Court 
of Common Pleas of the said County of Sullivan now sitting, 
Jabez Wakeman, a resident of the town of Fallsburgh in the 
County of Sullivan and State of New York aforesaid, aged seventy 
years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his 
oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit 
of the act of Congress passed June 7, 1S32. That he entered the 
service of the United States, and served as herein stated ; that he 
was born in the town of Fairfield, County of Fairfield and State of 
Connecticut, on the tenth day of May, one thousand seven hun- 
dred and sixty-two, as he believes and as it appears by his family 
bible now at his home ; that when called into service he lived in 
said town of Fairfield, and since the Revolutionary war resided 
in Redding in said County of Fairfield twelve or fourteen years, 
and then moved to the town of Thompson, now in the said town 


of Fallsburgh, where he has lived ever since. That in the year 
1777 he was drafted in the Militia and served three months in 
Captain Ebenezer Hill's company, of which Lewis Goodsell was 
Lieutenant, and in the regiment commanded by Colonel Jonathan 
Dimon, and served out the said turn on the lines. In 1778 he en- 
listed with Captain Eliphalet Thorp, Samuel Taylor, Lieutenant, 
belonging to Colonel Webb's Regiment of Militia, and served six 
months, kept guard on Sheppard's point an performed various 
other duties, and served as Sergeant in said Company for six 
months. In 1779 enlisted for one year as Sergeant in an Artil- 
lery Company of Militia Commanded by Captain Eliphalet Thorp, 
Lieutenant Samuel Sturgis and Isaac Jarvis in said Colonel 
Dimon's Regiment, and served the whole time as Sergeant. At 
Black Rock Fort was in the following different engagements, 
viz.: When the British landed at Fairfield, at Ridgefield when 
Danbury was burnt, at Cumber Hill when Greens Farms were 
burnt, also when Norwalk was burnt and a number of skirmishes 
on the lines. In the year 1780 served for three months under 
Captain Jabez Botsford and Lieutenant Dunkins on the lines near 
Horseneck. Besides the above regular service he frequently 
volunteered in Colonel Sheldon's Regiment, and also on board of 
whale boats commanded by Captain Brewster ; was wounded in 
the wrist in the taking of Captain Hoyt, a Tory, who commanded 
a British privateer, and generally lay at or near Hamburgh; 
never received any written discharge, and believes that none were 
given to the Militia in that quarter. 

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or 
annuity except the present, and declares that his name is not on 
the pension roll of the agency of any State. 

Sworn to and subscribed the day and year aforesaid. 

Jabez Wakeman. 
Jesse M. Foster, 

Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas. 

And the said Court do hereby declare their opinion after the in- 
vestigation of the matter, and after putting the interrogatories 
prescribed by the War Department, that the above named appli- 
cant was a revolutionary soldier and served as he states ; and the 
Court further certifies that the said David Hammond, who has 
signed the preceding certificate, is a resident of the Town of 
Thompson, adjoining the Town of Fallsburgh, which has lately 
been taken off of the Town of Thompson in that part where the 
applicant resides, and that Daniel Crawford, who has also signed 

2 3 8 


the same, is a resident in the said Town of Fallsburgh, and that 
they are persons of much respectability, are credible persons, and 
their statements are entitled to credit.

The following Bear story with James Wakeman (see 
No 211) as one of the principal actors, was supplied 
by Mr. G. B. Wakeman, of Unadilla, N. Y. : 

"During the winter of 181 5, big black bears had de- 
pleted the sheep of James Wakeman, grandfather 
of the writer. Mr. Wakeman had made a number 
of attempts at shooting these big bears, but without 
success, and finally concluded to try the virtues of 
a bear trap possessed by his brother Benjamin. 
The trap was accordingly set in the woods and a 
carcass of a sheep, lately deceased, was placed in 
the crotch of a sapling near by, and the trap deftly 

. covered with leaves. On the fourth morning there- 
after, as Mr. Wakeman was casually strolling in 
that immediate vicinity, he was pleased to notice 
that a big black bear of the male persuasion was 
caught in the trap by a rear leg, the trap having 
been fastened to a large log of wood to prevent it 
from being carried away without leaving a trail. 
Mr. Wakeman went home with speed and from 
thence to the house of his brothers, Benjamin, John 
and Abel, whom he informed of the interesting situa- 
tion. The four hastily repaired to the woods, and 
as Mr. Wakeman wished to take the big black bear 
alive, he made the following proposition which was 
agreed upon by all: 'John, you cut a good withe 
and make it into a running noose which you can 
get over the bear's head.' The bear in the mean- 
time had been prodded with saplings and had been 
rushing at the four brothers until he had gotten 
near the edge of the woods from which no amount 
of urging or torture would tempt him. The log at- 
tached to the strap was finally made fast, when the 
fun began in earnest. John finally got his noose 
over the bear's head and immediately snubbed it 
around a tree. ' Now boys,' said Mr. Wakeman, 
'we have him. I have here some cord to tie him 
with ; now Abel I want you to take enough in your 
teeth to tie his hind legs together, and Benjamin 
and I will each rush in and each take one of his fore 
legs. Remember, this boys, we have all got to 
hang on, for if one lets go his hold the others are 
going to get hurt. Now then, all ready, catch 



him ! ' The three rushed in and each caught his 
leg as directed and a lively tussle ensued lasting at 
least some time, and I have heard my grandfather 
say, that he never in all his life saw ' stars ' so fast 
as he did while the bear was threshing his and Ben- 
jamin's heads together. The bear was finally tied, 
and a sapling run through his legs lengthwise of his 
body. The brothers then shouldered him and car- 
ried him to the house. A jointed ring was made 
and put about his leg, and he was tied to a tree in 
the back yard where he was kept about two years, 
and finally shot by grandfather and it weighed 323

(From the New York Times, June 30, 1889.) 

Abram Wakeman, one of the active contemporaries 

of Thurlow Weed, William H. Seward, Horace 

Greeley, Henry J. Raymond and Preston King in 

the organization of the old Republican party, died 


early yesterday morning at his residence, 46 East 
Twentieth street in this city, after an illness of 
more than three months from a complication of 
painful ailments, succumbing finally to rheumatic 
Mr. Wakeman was born May 31, 1824, at Fairfield, 
Conn. His beginnings in life were much like those 
of the average New England youth. He was 
schooled at the academy in Fairfield, which was 
founded by Prof. Timothy Dwight, who is now the 
President of Yale University. At fourteen years 
of age he started out to make his way in the world 
alone and unassisted. He taught school at first at 
New Rochelle, and afterward in Lockport, N. Y., 
and then, resuming his studies, was graduated 
from Herkimer Academy. Then he studied law 
with Capron & Lake at Little Falls. Coming to 
New York city in 1S46, he continued his law studies 
with Horace Holden, and a year later was admitted 
to practice and to a partnership with Mr. Holden. 
Mr. Wakeman early took an active interest in poli- 
tics, supporting with ardor the candidates of the 
Whig party. In 1850 he was elected a member of 
the legislature from the Fifth Ward, and was re- 
elected in 1851. His legislative record was distin- 
guished by successful efforts to secure a revision of 
the public school laws. He also supported Hamil- 
ton Fish in his election to the United States Senate. 
In 1854 he was elected alderman from the Twelfth 
ward on the reform ticket, and was largely instru- 
mental the same year in securing the election of 
Gov. Preston King, the Free Soil and American 
party candidate. In 1856 he was a member of the 
Republican National Convention that nominated 
Gen. John C. Fremont tor president, and was a 
member of the national committee from this state 
during the twelve succeeding years. He himself 
was elected to Congress in 1856 as the candidate of 
the Free Soil and American parties, that subse- 
quently became merged in the Republican party. 
For a few years he continued the active practice of 
the law, his firm being Wakeman, Latting & 
Phelps, the junior member of which was the minis- 


ter of the United States to the Court of St. James', 
under Mr. Cleveland's administration. 

Mr. Wakeman attracted the favorable attention of 
Mr. Lincoln in the campaign of i860, and although 
he had been a supporter of William H. Seward 
in the convention, a warm friendship sprang up be- 
tween " Big Abe" and " Little Abe," as they famil- 
iarly called each other, and continued until Mr. Lin- 
coln's tragic death. At the outbreak of the war 
Mr. Wakeman raised a regiment of volunteers, the 
Eighty-first Pennsylvania, and was appointed its 
colonel, but he resigned the position at President 
Lincoln's earnest request to become postmaster of 
tais city. The administration thought he could do 
better service in helping to keep down the fire in 
the rear in those troublous times, and in doing this 
Mr. Wakeman was exposed to many dangers. Dur- 
ing the draft riots he was marked for a victim by 
the rioters, and had his residence, containing his 
large law library, in Eighty-seventh street, near 
Fifth avenue, burned by them. As postmaster he 
reorganized the service and established the district 
system, which remains in force at this day. During 
Mr. Lincoln's second term and to the end of John- 
son's term Mr. Wakeman was surveyor of the Port 
of New York, but having sided with Seward in his 
stand by the Johnson Administration, he incurred 
the enmity of a branch of the party, and from that 
time on was out of politics. The pride of his after- 
life was that he had retained throughout their lives 
the trusted friendship of Lincoln and Seward. 

After his retirement from politics Mr. Wakeman re- 
sumed the practice of law and became actively in- 
terested in railroads on Long Island. He organized 
the Bay Ridge and Manhattan Beach Roads, and 
was largely instrumental in establishing and im- 
proving the pleasure resorts on Coney Island. He 
sold his interest in all these enterprises to Austin 
Corbin and other members of the purchasing syn- 
dicate. Mr. Wakeman was twice married. His 
first wife and one of her children were burned in 
the Cambridge fiats fire several years ago. There 
survive Mr. Wakeman his second wife and two of 
the children of his first wife, a daughter and a son.

153* Thaddeus Burr Wakeman, 7 was one of the first 
settlers of McHenry Co., 111., at what was known as 
Big Foot Prairie. Here he eventually became one of 
the wealthiest and most successful farmers and land 
owners in that section. He became Justice of the 
Peace, and moved later to Harvard, 111. , and built up a 
good law practice. He was one of the most active and 
uncompromising abolitionists in Northern Illinois, and 
spent a large portion of his property before and during 
the Civil War, for the furtherance of freedom. He was 
sent to the Legislature in 1867, and later established 
himself in Chicago, where he followed his practice of 
law. He was noted for open-handed generosity and 
uprightness of purpose and attained the rare distinction, 
for a man who had taken so active a part in political 
and other affairs, of going through life without making 
an enemy. He m. in Tully, N. Y. , Sept. , 1835, Hannah

Campbell, May 24, 1898. He was born at Rhinebeck, 
and at the age of twelve moved with his father to Hec- 
tor, N. Y. In 1832 he came to Prattsburg, N. Y., 
where he worked at the trade of wagon making. In 
the great revival which prevailed there from 1828 to 
1832 he was converted, and united with the Presbyterian 
Church with seventy-two others, several of whom en- 
tered the ministry. He studied at Prattsburg Academy 
and at Auburn Seminary from 1841 to 1844. After 
supplying the church at Dansville a few months, he ac- 
cepted a call to Almond, where he preached for twenty- 
one years, building up a strong church. He preached 
in Painted Post, from 1865 to 1868; Campbell 1868 to 
1872; at Almond again, 1872 to 1874; and at Milburn, 
1874 to 1879. He then retired, living in Painted Post 
until four years ago, when he moved to Campbell to 
spend his remaining years with an adopted daughter. 
He was very active in the temperance and anti-slavery 
movements, and a very popular speaker. He was also 
much sought after in revival work. He wrote two vol- 
umes on temperance, viz.: "The Satanic License," 
which was widely circulated, and " The Golden Horn." 
He received the degree of D.D. from Alfred Univer- 
sity. In 1862 he recruited a company in the i32d Reg- 
iment, of which he became captain. After his discharge 
from disability he served on the Christian Commission. 
He preserved his faculties to the last in a ripe, 
useful, and cheerful old age.

I cannot do better here than to give the following 
sketch of Mr. Talcott B. Wakeman, from the pen of 
his friend, the Hon. T. S. Gold, of West Cornwall, 

" I am happy to recall my memory of my old time 
friend, Talcott B. Wakeman, and give a few lines 
as my testimony to those characteristics of the man 
as he appeared to me. Mr. Wakeman had a genu- 
ine love for his calling — agriculture — and was an 
honor to it by its successful prosecution. Though 
educated in the old time ways of the early part of 
the nineteenth century, he kindly and readily 
sought and accepted the teachings of modern 
science. His farming was thorough and his execu- 
tive ability in conducting his affairs, and managing 
his men, rendering labor efficient, excited my ad- 
miration. He had no use for the idle or inefficient. 
He made short work with any of that class that 
sought employment. Skillful and industrious him- 
self, he encouraged and developed the same spirit 
in others ; everything was kept in order on his prem- 



ises. Yet he found time for his public duties as a 
citizen and his sterling integrity gave weight to his 
counsels. Connecticut agriculture depends more 
for its prosperity upon such men as was Mr. Wake- 
man, than upon the natural advantages of the state 
in soil, climate, or location. Such examples should 
ever be remembered and honored as an encourage- 
ment to ' keep the boys on the farm ' if they are fit 
for the business. Farming is a hard business for 
those who have no love for husbandry, who can see 
no beauty or pleasure in rural life. I view Mr. 
Wakeman as having a heart as large and free as 
was his physical frame, who will always live in the 
kindly memory of those who knew him."

Captain William Webb Wakeman, when a young 
man, was engaged in business with his father at 
Mill River, now Southport, Conn., where his early 
life was spent. He branched out for himself after 
a short period, and became master of his own ves- 
sel, which was employed in the coasting trade be- 
tween New York, Boston, and Salem, Mass. 

During this period of his business life his vessel was 
wrecked near Holmes Hole, Mass., and in this 
emergency his characteristic coolness and deter- 
mination were strongly manifested ; for every man 
on board was sent ashore in safety before he con- 
sented to leave his vessel. 

He was next engaged in the coasting trade between 
New York and Georgetown, D. C, and at a later 
period extended the business to Savannah, Ga., 
and Galveston, Texas, where regular lines were 
established under the name of the Star line. Mr. 


Wakeman was at the same time extensively en- 
gaged in the East India and China trade under the 
firm name of Wakeman, Dimon & Co., which he 
organized. This firm was one of the first to send 
vessels to California after its annexation to the 
United States. 

At the outbreak of the war of the Rebellion, in i860, 
steamships were added to the prosperous lines of 
sailing vessels, which were employed by the gov- 
ernment as United States transports. 

About this time the firm name was changed to that 
of Wakeman, Gookin & Dickinson, but subse- 
quently to W. W. Wakeman & Co. 

After the close of the war a line of steamships was 
established between New York and Savannah, Ga., 
under the old name of the Star line, which was 
maintained for several years. In addition to their 
heavy shipping interests, this house became largely 
interested in gold and silver mines in California 
and Nevada, and at one time acted as New York 
agents for various mines. 

Mr. Wakeman was by nature a man of marked 
energy and force of character, and thus made his 
influence felt, and often paramount, in whatever he 
undertook. These qualities not only gave him suc- 
cess in business, but made him a valuable acquisi- 
tion to any cause which he espoused. 

In all public movements that promised moral and 
material improvement to those among whom he 
lived he was ever ready, by personal effort and 
generous contributions, to render efficient aid. 

He strongly advocated and was one of the committee 
to erect a suitable building for a graded public 
school in Southport during the years 1851 and 1852. 
He was one of the original trustees of the South- 
port Savings Bank when it was organized in 1854, 
and at a later period a director of the Shoe and 
Leather Bank in New York city. He was an in- 
corporator and original trustee of the Oak Lawn 
Cemetery Association of Southport, Conn., and 
was ever deeply interested in its development and 
success. He became a member of the Southport 
Congregational Church in the year 1847, and a 
deacon in 1849. 


His church life, like his daily life, was earnest and 
faithful wherever duty called, allowing no ordinary 
obstacle to hinder or defeat its conscientious per- 
formance. True to his convictions, prompt in his 
engagements, and with open-handed bounty to the 
poor and needy, he was always found a staunch 
friend on the side of right and justice, and an out- 
spoken foe to whatever he esteemed to be wrong. 
His works live after him, not only in his wholesome 
example and consistent religious life, but in his 
testamentary benefactions to the church and to the 
leading benevolent institutions of the day, bearing 
testimony to his interest in those objects which in 
later years lay very near his heart. 
He passed from mortal life to the immortal at his 
home in New York city, April 19, 1869, to which he 
returned smitten with a fatal malady from Cali- 
fornia, where important business had summoned 
him a few months previous, and when realizing his 
critical condition, with heroic resolution, com- 
menced immediate preparation for the long sea 
voyage home from San Francisco to New York, 
which he patiently endured, and with deep grati- 
tude and satisfaction reached the haven which he 
earnestly longed to gain ere life should end. The 
desire was granted, and, surrounded by his family, 
his last hours were passed in the home which was 
ever the nucleus of his keenest happiness. 
204. Maurice Wakeman, 7 of Southport, Conn. He 
was in the flour business in Boston, in the early '30's, 
and later became interested in realty in Brooklyn. He 
went to Chicago in 1836, on horseback, and became 
largely interested in real estate in Oswego, Buffalo, 
Cleveland and Chicago, mostly at the latter place, and 
in some adjacent towns. In 1837 the panic caused his 
failure for a large amount. He recovered some of the 
land by his father's aid, and settled in Southport, Conn., 
in 1846. Thereafter he followed his scholarly tastes 
and love of literature and English poetry, having his 
library stocked with the standard works. He also took 
much interest in the political affairs of the world and 



carried on a correspondence with prominent statesmen 
in this country and abroad. He was a man of kindly 
and charitable disposition, and of nobility of character. 
He was a member of the Congregational church in 
Southport, and was its clerk for a number of years. He 
m. in Southport, Oct. 15, 1845, Mary C. Thorp (b. Feb.

It appears that there was a settlement prior to 
1758-9 in New Paltz, Ulster County, N. Y., of some of 
the Wakeman name, who are not descended from John 
of New Haven. As the settlement was principally 
Dutch, and the records kept by Dutch scribes, the 
name was variously spelled by them. Below is given 
such data as has been obtained from these records 
through the kindness of Miss Annie R. Winfield, fol- 
lowed by such subsequent lineage as has been obtained.

HP HE following data was procured by Mr. Emory 
* McClintock, by personal research in the British 
Museum, in the Spring of 1900. It shows, as he says 
in a personal letter, that "It would appear that our 
uncle John was Prior when the Abbacy became vacant, 
and hurried to London to see about it; that Cromwell 
held up the ' temporalities ' until he could secure a sat- 
isfactory man for Abbot ; that John agreed to be satis- 
factory ; that Cromwell sent inspectors to threaten the 
election of a stranger unless the monks allowed the 
King to choose among themselves; and that after six 
days' caucusing the monks gave up their right to elect 
on a compromise by which the King should not choose 
a stranger. " 

" The letter of John to Kingston the moment it was 
over shows that the whole thing was cut and dried." 


Vol. VII., 189: 11 April, 1534. John Wyche, prior 
of Tewkesbury, to Sir Will Kingston: "I thank you 
for your great diligence in my behalf at my last being 
in London for the election. On Tuesday, 7 April, Dr. 
Tregonwell and Dr. Bagard delivered to me and the 


convent the King's letters. When I had read the same 
before my brethren, we returned the King hearty 
thanks, and on the morrow, observing that we were re- 
ferred to their credence, I was informed by them that 
we should take the form of a compromise in our elec- 
tion, referring the matter to the King's pleasure, which 
we did, four only excepted." 

Vol. VI.: 1533 [error for 1534], n April, Tewkes- 
bury. John Tregonwell and Thos. Bagard to Crom- 
well: "We have this instant obtained the election of 
the abbot of Tewkesbury by compromise. As it was 
noised among the brethren that great labor and suit 
were made for a stranger to be abbot, we could not by 
all our policy during these six days obtain more, unless 
we had promised that one of their own convent should 
be abbot. We were the more ready to consent, because 
you told me, John Tregonwell, at my departure, that 
the King did not intend to prefer a stranger, and that 
such a compromise would not be unacceptable. We 
beg you will move the King to respect our promise. " 

Petition of Convent, 6 May, 1534: royal assent at 
Greenwich May 15: ratified "with restitution of tem- 
poralities" 10 June, 1534. (It would seem that his 
majesty held up the " temporalities " till he was suited 
with the election.) 

Vol. IX., 229: 24 Oct., 1535. John, Abbot of Tewkes- 
bury, to Cromwell: "I thank you for your goodness 
at my preferment, and for your loving commendations 
to the King when he was at Tewkesbury, as yet unde- 
served of me." Says he sends Cromwell a horse and 
^20 to buy a saddle. 

King Henry signed a patent from the Monastery at 
Tewkesbury on 29 July, 1535. 



Dugdale's Monasticon, II., 84, 85, mentions among 
lands belonging to Tewkesbury abbey the following 
places: Sonthwike, Muyth, Forthampton, and Didcot, 
the latter in parish of Beckford. 

Tanner's Notitia Monastica, article "Tewkesbury," 
says that the Abbey had "lands in Becford" — not the 
Beckford Priory lands. 

Fosbrooke's Gloucestershire, II., 280: "The demesne 
of the manor of Tewkesbury in this place [Mythe] . 
was granted to Daniel and Alexander Perte, who had 
license (Pat. 7 Edw. VI.) to alienate to Will Thorneby 
and Rich. Wakeman." This seems to have been sepa- 
rate from the Abbey lands in the Mythe, which seem 
to have been in Richard's possession earlier. A patent 
of 1 Edw. VI., refers to lands in the Mythe which had 
been "in the tenure of Rich. Tyndall and Rich. Wake- 

List of "Pentions," 12 Jan., 31 Henry VIII., in Dug- 
dale II., 83: "J. Wakeman, late abbot, to have the 
house of Forthampton with the demaynes belonging to 
the same and the tithes of the tenants of Forthampton 
aforesaid and Swynle in ferme for the yerely rent of 
^8:13 :i," and pension per annum of ^266 113:8. 

Atkyns' Gloucestershire indicates that Richard of 
Beckford bought much of his land from Coningsby, who 
married heiress of Sir R. Lee. This purchase seems to 
have been late in the sixteenth century. Perhaps he 
began with some small holdings, favored by the Bishop.
