PREFACE. 



Names are apellations, which, when applied to persons, are used to 
designate one family from another, and one individual fi'om another of 
the same family. Family names are surtiames, and are arbitrary; 
depending upon the sole will and choice of the persons taking them. 
Hence many persons have relinquished their family or surname, and 
taken some other ; while others for the novelty of it, or from some 
other cause have changed the orthography of their surnames, whereby 
the number of names has not only been greatly increased, but a knowl- 
edge of the ancestry of some families entirely lost. 

While the right of a person to assume a new name is conceded, there 
is also high authority for saying, that every man has a right to spell his 
oum name as he pleases, but not that of another. 

To surnames are prefixed other and various names to designate indi- 
viduals, the offspring of the same paternity — such are called christian 
names. 

The orthography of both christian and surnames in the following 
pages will be thought, in some instances by most readers, to be incor- 
rect, and, perhaps in some, known to be so by those to whom they are 
applied. However that may be, I have followed the orthography, as 
also the dates without regard to old and new style, as found in public 
records and in the communications sent me ; prefering, in a few in- 
stances excepted, where the orthography was manifestly erroneous, to 
take it as I found it. 

An article upon the origin of names, and one upon old and new style 
may be found at the close of the volume.

ber of children in the family. Those in the right hand column that the 
person against whose name they are placed had or has descendants or 
is further noticed — such may be found with his or her family by cor- 
responding figuz-es on the left hand against his name or that of her hus- 
band in the succeeding generation. Those in brackets following the 
name of the husband or wife refer to his or her number in the whole 
number traced and to his or her number in the family to which he or 
she belonged. Towns, when mentioned are to be understood as in 
Massachusetts, unless otherwise designated or implied. Places of resi- 
dence, when known, are also mentioned. It is matter of regret that so 
many omissions in that particular are found in the documents sent me. 
A knowledge of one's residence, who had a family, is not only desirable 
but essentially necessary to aid the enquirer where to look for his 
descendants or a record of them — without it he is not unlike a sliip in 
the midst of a broad and trackless ocean seeking her destined port 
without chart or compass.

OTRODUCTION. 



A desire to know my ancestors, paternal and maternal, in a continu- 
ous line to the period of their first settling in this country, gave rise to 
this publicatioa. 

While accomplishing it, collaterals and their descendants met me on 
every side, and claimed of me that notice, which had been so long neg- 
lected THAT THE KNOWLEDGE OP THEM MIGHT NOT DIE "WITH THEM. 

That appeal was not made in vain — it has been complied with, and 
the result is here embodied in a record of the Ward family, not only in 
discharge of a duty to the departed, but for the information of their 
descendants now on the stage, and of those that are yet to come. 

It embraces the names of all the descendants of William Ward, so 
far as they have come to my knowledge from county, town, parish and 
family records. Further time and researches would no doubt lead to the 
discovery of others, and to what became of some herein mentioned, of 
whom but little is known. 

The first mention of WiUiam Ward, and of his being in America, that 
I have been able to find, was in 1G39, In that year, according to the 
records of Sudbury, the proprietors of that plantation made three divis- 
ions of their lands ; the first in 1639, the second and third, in 1640 — it 
appears of record, that William Ward shared in each of these divisions ; 
then having a second wife and several children. Tradition, transmitted 
from his early descendants, says he came from Yorkshire or Derbyshire 
in England. Investigations have recently been made in England to 
ascertain his paternity, but without any satisfactory result. They are 
still being made for that purpose, and to learn the names of his wives 
and bii-ths of his children, who came here with him. Yet, as consider- 
able time may elapse before the final result can be obtained, and, when 
obtained, may not be conclusive, it is deemed not advisable to delay this 
publication for information from abroad to the disappointment at home, 
of many of his descendants, who are impatient by reason of their ad-

vanced age, to be informed of their ancestry, at least in America, before 
they go hence. 

Information already received, renders it improbable that he came 
from Yorkshire, although it is quite certain, that his early ancestors 
were of that place. Seven hundred and ten distinguished persons, each 
bearing but one name, accompanied William, the Conqueror, from Nor- 
mandy to the conquest of England in 1066 ; a record of all of whose 
names is yet preserved. Among the number, was " Ward, one of the 
noble Captains." This is the earliest period in wlaich the name is found 
in English history, and the first which appears there with an additional 
name was William de la Ward, residing in Chester, in 1175. 

From 1349, a succession of eleven generations of one family is found 
there, in each of which, the name of the head of the family was, in the 
first, Ralph ; in the second, Richard ; in the third, John ; in the fourth, 
John ; in the fifth, Richard ; in the sixth, William ; in the seventh, 
Thomas ; in the eighth, Tliomas ; in the ninth, John ; in the tenth, 
Richard ; and in the eleventh, Thomas, who had sons John and Wil- 
liam — these were prevailing names in the early families descended 
from William of Sudbury, and are yet retained to a considerable extent 
in the families of his descendants to the present time. 

The Wards of Yorkshire spread into the adjoining counties of Eng- 
land ; those of Durham, whence it may be, came William Ward, after- 
wards of Sudbury, were descendants of the Yorkshire Wards — the 
arms anciently belonging to the family here, were Azure, a cross baton, 
or Crest, wolfs head erased — and such were those of the Durham 
Wards. 

William Ward was made freeman in 1643 ; represented Sudbury in 
the General Court in 1644, and was several years Chaimian of the 
selectmen, as he was in 1660, when he removed from that town. 

He, with twelve others belonging to Sudbury, petitioned the General 
Court in 1656 for a new plantation of eight miles square, saying, 
*' Whereas, your petitioners have lived divers years in Sudbury, and God 
hath been pleased to increase our children, which are now, divers of 
them, grown to man's estate, and wee many of us grown into years so 
as that wee should bee glad to see them settled before the Lord take us 
away from hence, as also God having given us some considerable quan- 
tity of cattle, so that wee are so straightened that wee cannot so com- 
fortably subsist as could be desired ; and some of us having taken some 
pains to view the country, wee have found a place which lieth West- 
ward about eiglit miles from Sudbury which wee conceive might bee 
comfortable for our subsistence," &c. 



INTRODUCTION. VII 

Sudbury then contained less than seventy-five families, and em- 
braced in territory what is now Sudbury and Wayland — one would 
naturally think they were " straightened " for neighbors, more than for 
want of room ; and so they found it, even twenty years later, when the 
town with an increased population was nearly destroyed by the Indians. 

Their petition was granted to the extent of " six miles square, or 
otherwise, in some convenient form equivalent thereto in the place de- 
sired " — the plantation was laid out not six miles square, yet, for an 
" equivalent thereto," it was, to say the least of it, a very liberal ad- 
measurement ; embracing in teri'itory most of what is now comprised in 
the towns of Marlborough, Westborough, Northborough, and South- 
borough — the names of the three last mentioned towns are significant 
of their relative location to the towns from which they were set off — 
Westborough, including what is Northborough, was set off from Marl- 
borough in 1717 — Northborough from Westborough in 1766, and 
Southborough from Marlborough in 1727. The plantation was incor- 
porated by the name of Marlborough in 1660 ; in that year William 
Ward removed there from Sudbury, and was chosen deacon of the 
church when first organized there — the house lots ranged from fifteen 
to fifty acres each, and each was entitled to a proportionate share in the 
after divisions of the common lands — his was a fifty acre lot, situated 
on the South side of the road and nearly opposite the site of the first 
Meeting house, which was not far from where the Gates Academy now 
stands — he built and resided upon it — his lands by after divisions ex- 
tended Westward to what, in some of his conveyances, he called " Belch- 
er's Pond," near Avhich was erected the public house, long and wide 
known, as the Williams Tavern, and kept by Abraham Williams, who 
married the eldest daughter of William Ward, and afterwards by his 
grand son, Col. Abraham Williams, and subsequently by Silas Gates, 
who married into that family. 

William Ward, in common with others, endured great hardships and 
sustained great losses by Indian hostilities ; more especially in the time 
of King Phillip's war in 1675-6, when his buildings were fired, his cat- 
tle destroyed, and one of his sons slain by the enemy. 

He died at Marlborough, Aug. 10, 1687 ; the record there does not 
state his age — a knowledge of which would greatly facilitate the dis- 
covery of his parentage by identifying him from some others of the name 
of William, who, as appears by records from England, were bom with- 
in a few years of each other — his age is supposed to have been eighty 
five or ninety ; probably it was the latter. His Will bears date " the 



Vlir INTRODUCTION. 

sixth of April, in the year of our Lord Christ, one thousand six hundred 
and eighty-six ; " wherein he says, " enjoying through God's mercy the 
entireness of my understanding ; but by reason of my great age and the 
infirmaties thereof, being sensible of approaching death, do make this 
my last will," &c. — appoints his " loving wife, Elizabeth, sole execu- 
trix ; " gives liberally to her, and requests his " sous, John Ward, In- 
crease Ward, and son-in-law, Abraham Williams, to be helpful to his 
wife, as occasion may require ; — gives " to all my own children, viz. all 
my sons and daughters, which I have by my former wife, and all that I 
have surviving by my present wife." He also gave legacies to his grand 
children and to their mothers, children and widows of his " sons, Richard 
and Eleazer, deceased." He had foui'teen children ; and as he gave to 
all the children by his former wife, and to the surviving by his then 
wife, it is presumed all of them by the first wife were living at the date 
of his Will ; and that Richard, his fourth child, who died in 1666, at the 
age of thirty-one years, was by his last wife — hence he must have mar- 
ried a second time, some years before he left England. 

His widow, when past her seventy-fourth year, made several journies 
to Boston, as appears by the Probate records there, before she effected 
a settlement of his estate with the exorbitant and tyramiical Andros, 
Governor, Judge of Probate, &c. Considering the distance she resided 
from Boston, exceeding thirty miles, much of the way a wilderness fre- 
quented by lurking savages, a bridle way her road, and on which one 
of her sons had been a few years before shot down by the enemy at noon 
day, she must have been a person of great fortitude, and possessed of 
physical powers in an eminent degree. 

She died at Marlborough, where, some years since, her grave stone 
was standing, on which was an inscription as follows : 

" Here lyes the body of Elizabeth Ward, the servant of the Lord — 
deceased in 87 year of her age, Dec. ye 9, in the year of our Lord 
1700."

nine years, and nine years Representative (not sixteen as 
said by Farmer) in " The Great and General Court; " he 
lived in the Southeasterly part of the town — his dwell- 
ing house was constructed for, and used as a garrison prior 
to, and at the time of King Philip's war, 1675-6. In 1701 
he disposed of his real estate, lying mostly in one body, 
by deeds of gift to his sons. The quantity of land to each 
was about one hundi*ed acres, and in each deed was a clause 
restricting the grantee from selling without the consent of 
his brothers, or the major part of them. When any one

gave their impUed consent to the sale. He made his will, 
Feb. 2, 1708, and d. at Newton, July 8, 1708, aged 82, 
and his wife Hannah, April 24, 1704, aged 73. g. stones.

Joanna Ward, [3.2] and settled at Marlboro', near "Bel- 
cher's Pond" — where has long been a public house, and, 
many years ago, known as the " William's Tavern " — her 
father in his will and certain deeds speaks of Abraham 
W^illiams as his son-in law, and calls the pond, lying near 
his house. Belcher's Pond ; Abraham Williams represented 
Marlboro' in the General Court, and d. there Dec. 29, 
1712, and his wid., Joanna, Dec. 8, 1718, aged 90. T. 
Rec. Marlboro' records are very imperfect with respect to 
their chil. — the names of no other than Lydia and John 
are found there ; and the birth of the latter is not on rec- 
ord. They had at least four chil., viz : 

29. 1 Elizabeth, who m. Thomas Beman before 1679, and 

resided at Marlboro'. 

30. 2 William, who m. Elizabeth before 1692, and d. at 
Marlboro', Aug. 30, 1702, leaving an only son, Abra- 
ham, b. 1695, m. Prudence How in 1715, and Eliz- 
abeth Breck in 1729. His 3d wife was Elizabeth ; she 
d. at Marlboro' in 1775. He attained to the rank of 
Colonel ; and in 1755 commanded the 3d Regiment of 
Militia in the counties of Middlesex and Worcester. He 
d. at Marlboro', July 10, 1781, aged 86. 

31. 3 Lydia, 1669.

WARD FAMILY. 11 

were living, Dec. 18, 1711, as appears by their father's 
deed of gift, recorded with Middlesex deeds, at Cambridge. 
Abraham Williams disposed of his estate by deed of gitt, 
dated Dec. 28, 1712, — recorded with Middlesex deeds, 
Book 16, page 82, from which the following are extracts: 

To all people &c : — Know ye that I, Abraham Wil- 
liams, sen. of the town of ^Marlboro' &c., being stricken in 
years, and not knowing how soon my Lord will call, upon 
good considerations me moving, do give and grant as fol- 
loweth : after my decease and the decease of my beloved 
consort, Joanna Williams, there shall be paid out of my 
estate, to my daughter, Elizabeth Beman, besides what 
she hath already had, three score pounds in New England 
money — unclipt money — it shall be for her and her chil- 
dren forever ; also I give to her and hers half my stock 
that shall then be found, except one yoak of oxen and feed- 
ing cattle, and one horse. The one-half of all the rest 
shall be theirs free forever. I also give to my daughter, 
Elizabeth Beraan, and to hers half of ray household 
goods, and to my sonin-law, Thomas Beman, thirty 
pounds passable money, and forty acres of land I bought 
of my brother, John Ward, [lie was of Newton] and 
twenty six acres that lies adjoining it — in all three score 
and six acres: it shall be his forever after our decease, to 
stand good in fee simple. And because God hath taken 
away my eldest son and proper heir, and who never had 
any possession of my housing or lands, but as we traded 
together with corn and cattle, and so he had his part of 
all our income, and having left with me one only son, I 
reckon him my proper heir in his father's room ; and ac- 
cordingly do give and grant to him, as first born, viz : 
Abraham Williams, together with his uncle, John Wil- 
liams, all the rest of my estate undisposed of, viz': all 
my housing, with the land they stand upon and is about 
them on every side bounded and fenced, and all my lands 
and meadows abroad ; all ray husbandry furniture, car- 
pentering tools, and the rest of my stock — they shall be 
Abraham Williams his and John Williams his together, 
not to be parted, but improved for their subsistence to- 
gether, unless extremity enforces a sale of a small piece 
thereof — all these gifts and grants shall be to them and 
their heirs forever. And further, concerning William 
Ripley, whom we have brought up from a child ; his time 



12 WARD FAMILY. 

is not long to stay on strict terms — then nine pounds will 
be due liim, one he hath had already — let his due be paid 
out of the whole estate — if he will stay Avith Abraham 
and John for reasonable wages by the year, three or four 
years, then I give to him, for his own forever, to settle on, 
twenty acres of land at Rock patch, with the meadow to it, 
next to my son Beman's. If he like not that, he shall 
have twenty acres at the west end of Crane hill, and three 
acres of meadow at Cedar meadow above the Island next 
to Barns. And if not that, he must go. 

I desire and pra3\ my three beloved friends, my son-in- 
law, Thomas Beraau, my brother, Samuel Ward, and my 
cousin, Joseph Stratton, to be overseers and feofees in 
trust, to see to the fulfilling of these gifts and improve- 
ment of the other according to the premises for my wife, 
John and Abraham. And when God shall take either of 
us awav, to allow a decent and Christian burial, without 
weeds or flourishes, for our fathers and mothers had none. 

Signed with my own hand and sealed with my own 
seal, &c. Dec. 18, 1711. 

(4) II. " OB ADI AH WARD, [4.3] and Mary his wife, were 
m., Nov. 13, 1G69 ; " so is the record. In the early settle- 
ment of the country, the like record of marriages was not 
uncommon, whereby the family name of the wife is not 
only withheld, but the record so made as to imply a wife 
before marriage. Their marriage took place probably 
in 1667, instead of '69. He had lands assigned him in 
Sudbury, in 1653, and a house lot of twenty-one acres, with 
after divisions in Marlboro' in 1660, and moved there soon 
after; where bis wife Mary d., Aug. 22, 1706. He

12, 1761. An agreement of that date, under the hand and 
seal of each, dividing their father's estate, was filed in the 
Prob. ofifice but it was not signed by the husbands of his 
daughters. They were probably not living.

chased lands in 1715, and his son, William, in 1720. Jacob, 
another son, received a deed of gift of lands there from 
his father, in 1726. William, the father, next removed

proprietors of new townships, to survey their house 
lots, and subsequent divisions of their common lands ; he 
thereby became a proprietor of many of the new towns, 
and an extensive land holder. He was a Magistrate in 
early life, and much employed in public business ; he pe- 
titioned the Gen. Court for a grant of land, for losses in 
the Narraganset war, sustained by the father of his wife,

How, [52.1] of Marlboro'. He followed the seas in early 
life, and in several voyages was master of a vessel ; but 
a spiritual change coming over him, as he said, induced 
him to relinquish that mode of life, and go into trade in 
Boston, where it is supposed his eldest son was b., and 
whose birth is found only on Shrewsbury records with 
those of his other chil. It will be seen, that according to 
the records, that son was b. more than a year before the pa- 
rents' marriage. The early age at which the son was mar- 
ried leads to the presumption that he was b. as early as 
recorded, and that the error, if any, is in the record of the 

4

year of his parents' marriage. The father was of Marl., 
1716, v*'here the birth of the second son is recorded, and 
soon after of Shrewsbury, where is the only record of his 
other chil. He was a proprietor of Shrews., one of its 
first settlers, and one of the founders of the chh. in that 
town. He was the first, and for seven years, the Rep. 
from S. in the Gen. Court. He rose to the rank of Col., 
was early a magistrate, and, in 1745, a Justice of the C. 
C. Pleas for the county of Worcester ; in which oflSce he 
d.. May 7, 1754, aged 70, having made his will on the

FOURTH GEKERATION. 

(42) IV. Rev. THOMAS GREENWOOD, [103.1] H. 

U., 1690, ord. Minister of Rehoboth, (that part now Se- 
konk, 1693, m. 1693, Elizabeth, b. 1668, dau. of Capt. 
Noah Wiswall, of Newton, who, b. 1640, m. Theodosia, 
dau. of John Jackson, of Newton, 1664, and was slain in 
battle, at Wheelwright's pond, (Lee, N. H.) with a party 
of French and Indians, Lord's day, July 6, 1690. Capt. 
Noah was son of Thomas, who removed from Dorchester 
to Newton, and d. 1683. Rev. Thomas Greenwood d. in 
the ministry, at Sekonk, Sept. 8, 1720, aged 50 ; and his 
wid., Elizabeth, at Weymouth, Jan. 24, 1735-6. They 
had, 

268. 1 Hannah, b. Feb. 5, 1694. 

269. 2 John, May 20, 1697, H. U., 1717, ord. at Sekonk, 
1721, successor of his father inthe ministry there ; had 
fourteeen chil. and d. 1766. 

270. 3 Noah, AprU 20, 1699, d. March 26, 1703. 

271. 4 Esther, Aug. 20, 1701, d. Sept. 14, 1701. 

272. 5 Elizabeth, April 5, 1704. 

273. 6 Esther, June 25, 1709, d. unm. Aug. 31, 1731. 

In the history of Rehoboth, by Leonard Bliss, jr., it 
is said, " The Rev. Thomas Greenwood d. Sept. 8, 1720, 
at half-past two, P. M., aged 50 years. He was a native 
of Weymouth, Mass., where his father, of whose Christian 
name I am ignorant, died, according to minutes made by 
Rev. Thomas Greenwood, Sept. 1, 1693, in the evening." 
This account agrees with the time of the death of Thomas 
Greenwood, of Newton, as inscribed on his grave-stone, still 
standing in the ancient burying-ground in Newton. The 
town records of Weymouth do not contain the name of any 



30 WARD FAMILY. 

one of his family, nor is his name found there. Yet, his 
son, Thomas, may have been b. there. The birth of 
Thomas, son of Thomas and Hannah Greenwood, is found 
in Middlesex records, Jan. 27, 1678 — the figure 3 hav- 
ing been substituted for some other one erased. Thomas, 
father of Rev. Thomas Greenwood, was Selectman in New- 
ton, (then Cambridge,) 1686-7-90, and d. in that office, 
Sept. 1, 1693. l^ie Rev. Thomas would have been 
almost 50 when he d., if b. Jan. 27, 1671, as was probably 
the original entry of his birth, and afterwards altered to 
1673. 

(43) IV. JOHN GREENWOOD, [104.2] m. Hannah, b.

resided at Newton until after 1720, where the births of 
the following chil., except the last, are on record. He re- 
moved with his family to Grafton, and, probably was of

Ct., in 1734, and in that year purchased lands in Ashford, 
in the deed of which he is called of Pomfret. In 1738 
he purchased lands in Ashford, of Thomas Hill, of Bos- 
ton, and mortgaged the same to Hill. He was living in 
1761, and conveyed lands there, other than what he had 
of Hill, to Jabez Ward. He probably had deceased be-

lawful heirs to the same ; by another deed, Silas Chapin 
and his wife, Amia, and James Eaton, all of Springfield, 
quitted their right to the same land, and to the same pe 
son. They were probably " the rest of the heirs." Daniel 
and Jabez purchased lands in Ashford, 1754, Daniel 
■was of Glastonbury, Ct., 1771, and sold out at Ashford, 
1780. Jabez was of Ashford until 1784, when he sold

Samuel Trusdale, jr., at Newton, May 7, 1730, was his

(56) IV. DAVID RICHARDSON, of Newton, m. 
Remember Ward, [140.4] (second wife,) Oct. 19, 
1726 ; so is the record. The births of their chil. indicate 
a later marriage than 1726 ; which might be supposed 
an error, and should be 1736, were it not that her father's 
estate was settled, and distribution made at Prob. Court, 
1728 ; at which David Richardson was present, and in 
the record is called the husband of Remember, and had 
most of her father's real estate set to him, for which he 
was to pay the other heirs. His first wife was Esther 
Ward, [124.2]. He resided at Newton, and d. there 
1770, aged 71, and Remember, 1760, aged about 54.

Whitfield's preaching, became himself a preacher of the

buryport to the work of the ministry at Plymouth, N. H. ; 
in Oct. following he removed with his family from New- 
ton to that new settlement, consisting of only eight fami- 
lies, in the winter of 1763 and '4, and where a chh, was 
first organized, April 10, 1764. His wife, Tamasin, d. 
at Plymouth, N. H., Aug. 16, 1777, aged 55. He next 
m. Lydia Olough of Salem, Jan. 1779, and d. at Plym- 
outh, N. H., June 15, 1804, aged 83. His wid., Lydia,

aker. (120) 

356. 13 Eunice, Oct. 25, 1782, m. Isaac Stafford. (121) 

It is worthy of notice that five of the above named chil. 
d. within thirty-six days of each other, and four of them 
at an age that could not but have added to the over- 
whelming grief of the parents, and may well be supposed 
to have broken a mother's heart. 

(62) IV. WILLIAM WARD, [151.1] m. Rachel 



and resided at Union, Ct. ; of which he was a very prom- 
inent man, as appears by the records of that town. He 
was a large land holder and owned several farms there ; 
at a corner of one of them, there was, and yet remains, a 
large rock, on which are cut in large capitals the letters 
W.W., but whether by him, or his father William, is un- 
known — tradition there is that it was marked by Will- 
iam Ward. It is known by the name of rock W. to this

day. His will, dated Aug. 12, 1772, was approved Oct. 
2, 1780 ; he d. in the summer of that year, aged 89.

(63) IV. GAMALIEL WARD, [153.3] m. Damaris 



and resided at Union, Ct., where the births of five of his 
chil. are recorded. That of the sixth is found on record 
at Somers, Ct., to which town the parents are supposed 
to have removed from Union, and of whom no further 
record is any where found. Their chil. were, 

367. 1 Jonathan, March 1, 1725.

372. G Ruth, May 17, 1647, supposd m. Chadwell Parsons. 
In the Genealogy of the Parsons family it said, " Na- 
thaniel Parsons m. Mary Pease, Dec. 28, 1725, and had 
Nathaniel and Chadwell, viho m. Ruth, dau.ofJosiah 
Ward of Enfield " ; meaning undoubtedly, Enfield, Ct. ; 
that Ruth was the dau. of Josiah, is thought to be a mis- 
take ; as neither the records of Enfield, nor of Somers, 
Ct., of which Enfield was once a part, contain any evi- 
dence of a Josiah Ward having ever resided in either 
town, or that any other Ward there, save Gamaliel, had 
had a daughter by the name of Ruth. 

(64) IV. JACOB WARD, [154.4] was of Ashford, Ct., 
with a wife, Hannah, in 1727, and received a deed of 
.gift of lands there in that year from his father, William. 
The births of six of their chil. are on record at Ashford ; 
the two last are found at Somers, Ct., to which town the 
parents probably removed from Ashford before 1742. 
Jacob, the father, d. at Somers, Ct., Sept. 18, 1748, in 
his 61st vear. His chil. were.

Artemas Ward resided at Shrewsbury, but did not 



4o WARD FAMILY. 

study a profession. At the age of 25 years, he^ was 
commissioned a Justice of the Peace ; in 1755, a Major in 
the 3d Regiment of Militia in the counties of ^Middlesex 
and Worcester, whereof Abraham Williams, Esquire, of 
Marlboro', was Col. ; and, in 1758, was Major in the 
Regt. of foot commanded by William Williams, raised 
for a general invasion of Canada. He went out on that 
ill-fated expedition under the command of Gen. Aber- 
crombie, from which he returned with the rank of Lt. Col. 
The frequent wars between England and France involved 
the American Colonies in the contests of the mother coun- 
try until the conquest of Canada in 1760. Our northern 
frontier was long the principal battle-ground, where the 
Provincials, cooperating with regular and well disci- 
plined troops under the command of expeinenced officers, 
were at school in learning the art of war, and therein 
made such proficiency, that in a short time they coped 
with their teachers, and, possessing an unconquerable 
spirit and love of liberty, turned them out of the school- 
house and retained possession for themselves and their 
posterity — forever may they keep it 1 

Artemas Ward succeeded Abraham Williams in the 
command of the 3d Regiment, and represented his native 
town in the Gen. Court ; where he took an active part 
in the controversies between the Colonial Governors and 
the House of Reps, that preceded the Revolution. 

Fearless in speech and resolute in manner, he 
boldly denounced such Parliamentary measures as 
encroached on the rights of the Colonies, and which 
the Governors, if they did not recommend, at ^ least 
sought to enforce in offensive laniruase and by arbitrary 
means. The country was roused, and militia trammgs 
became frequent ; some of whose officers gave political as 
well as military instruction to the troops under their com- 
mand ; such was Col. Ward's practice, which occasioned 
the following letter : — 

Boston, June 30, 1766. 
To Artemas Ward, Esquire. Sir : I am ordered by 
the Governor to signify to you, that he has thought fit to 
supersede your commission of Col. in the Regt. of Mili- 
tia lying in part in the County of Worcester, and partly 
in the County of Middlesex. And your said commission 
is superseded accordingly. 

I am, sir, your most obt. and humble servt., 

John Cotton, Dep'ty Sec'y. 



WARD FAMILY. 47 

The foregoing letter ^-as forwarded by Express, and 
the messenger, as directed, delivered it himself to Col. 
Ward, and then waited until he had opened and read it, 
as if to ascertain and report how it was received. As 
the messenger was in full military costume and mounted 
on a foaming steed, he attracted the attention of many 
citizens, who were present, and who enquired of CoL 
Ward, if he had important news — - whereupon he read 
the letter aloud, and then, turning to the messenger, said, 
give my compliments to the Governor, and say to him, I 
consider myself tioice honored, but more in being super- 
seded, than in having been commissioned, and that I thank 
him for this, holding up the letter, since the motive that 
dictated it is evidence, that I am, what he is not, a 
friend to my country. 

In losing the confidence of the Governor he shared 
more largely in that of the public. In 1768, the House 
of Reps, being disposed to surround the Governor with 
a Council composed of men proved and approved for their 
patriotism and fideUty, elected him as one of the mem- 
bers of that body. The Governor negatived the choice 
— some others shared the same fate. What a compli- 
ment to their integrity and vigilance in defending char- 
tered rights ! The people s:stained their Representa- 
tives, and for so doing, were threatened with subjection 
by military force. Tlie country was alarmed. Submis- 
sion or resistance was the only alternative. Conventions 
were held, and through them the people, as with one voice, 
proclaimed resistance and their determuiation to repel 
force by force ; preparations for that purpose com- 
menced ; and on the 2Tth of October, 1774, the Provincial 
Congress, then sitting at Cambridge, elected Jedediah 
Preble, Artemas Ward, and Seth Poraroy, General Offi- 
cers, to take rank in the order above stated. Hostilities 
commenced at Lexington and Concord on the 19th of 
April, 1775, and, on the 20th, Gen. Ward was at Cam- 
bridge ; where on that day he issued several general or- 
ders, and appointed Samuel Osgood, Esq., afterwards of 
Andover, and .Joseph Ward. Esq., of Newton, his Aids- 
de-Camp ; the latter also officiated as his Secretary. ^Iv. 
Preble did not accept his appointment. It was not until 
the 19th of May following, that Gen. Ward was aD- 
pointed Commander-in-chief. On the 20th he received 
his commission, which was as follows : — 



48 WARD FAMILY. 

The Congress of the Colony of the Massachusetts Bay. 

To the Honourable ARTEMAS WAKD, Esquire, 

(jrreetin!?; : — 

We, reposing especial trust and confidence in your 
courage and good conduct, do oy these presents consti- 
tute and appoint you, the said ARTEMAS WARD, to 
be GENERAL and COMMANDER IN CHIEF of all 
the forces raised by the Congress aforesaid, for the de- 
fence of this and the other American Colonies. 

You are therefore carefully and diligently to discharge 
the duty of a General in leading, ordering, and exercis- 
ing the Forces in Arms, both inferior officers and sol- 
diers, and to keep them in good order and discipline ; and 
they are hereby commanded to obey you as their Gen- 
eral ; and you ai"e yourself to observe and follo^v such 
orders and instructions as you shall, from time to time, 
receive from this or any future Congress or House of 
Representatives of this Colony, or the Committee of 
Safety, so far as said Committee is impowered by their 
commission to order and instruct you for the defence of 
this and the other Colonies, and to demean yourself ac- 
cording to the military rules and discipline established by 
said Congress in pursuance of the trust reposed in you. 

By order of the Congress. 
Dated 19th May A. D. 1775. 

Jos. Warren, Pres. P. T. 

Middlesex, ss. May 20, 1775. 

The Honorable Artemas Ward, Esquire, took the oath 
appointed by the Congress of the Colony of the Massachu- 
setts Bay to be taken by the General OfScers and sub- 
scribed the same before me. 

Samuel Dexter, Justice of the Peace. 

This commission did not authorize him to command the 
forces raised *.n the other Colonies, of which a considera- 
ble number arrived at Cambridge previous to the battle 
of Bunker Hill. 

A continental Congress assembled at Philadeliihia in 
Sept., 1774, and on the 15th day of June, 1775, made 
choice, unanimously, of George Washington, to com- 
mand all the Continental Forces raised or to be raised 
for the defence of American Liberty — and on the 17tb, 
Artemas Ward, Esquire, was chosen first Maj. General, 
and Charles Lee, Esquire, second Maj, General. 



WARD FAMILY. 

In April, 1776, Gen. Ward represented to Congress 
the feeble state of his health and his unwillingness to con- 
tinue in office and receive its emoluments, while pre- 
vented bj ill health from rendering an equivalent in the 
service, and requested Congress to accept his resignation 
of the office of Maj. General. He continued in the ser- 
vice at the request of Gen. Washington and of the Con- 
tinental Congress until the close of that year. In 1777 
he was elected by the House of Reps, a member of the 
Executive Council of the State of Massachusetts, and by 
the Council, President of that Board; and in 1779, ap- 
pointed a member of the Continental Congress, but pre- 
vented by ill health from taking a seat in that body. 

After the adoption of the Federal Constitution, he was 
elected and re-elected a member of Congress. 

A monument in the burying-ground at Shrewsbury 
erected to his memory has the following inscription, con- 
taining a condensed account of the principal stations in 
which he acted his part in an eventful period of our 
country's history : — 

Majoi' General Artemas Ward, 

son of Col. Nalium Ward, 

H. U. 1748 ; 1762 a Justice, and 1776, Chief Justice of the 

C. C. Pleas for the County of Worcester. 

1758 a Major in the expedition against Canada. 

1759 appointed Col. ; 1766 his commission, as Col., revoked 

for his inflexible opposition to arbitrary power ; 

whereupon he informed the Royal Governor 

that he had been tivice honored. 

1 768 chosen one of the Executive Council and by the 

Royal Governor, and for the same reason, negatived 

and deprived of a seat at that Board. 

1775 appointed to the command of the Army 

at Cambridge ; and by the Continental Congress, 

first Maj. General in the Army of the Revolution. 

1779 appointed a member of the Continental Congress 

and under the Federal Government, repeatedly 

elected a member. 
16 years a Rep. from this town in the Legislature 
and in 1785 
Speaker of the House of Representatives. 
Firmness of mind and integrity of purpose were characteristic of 
his whole life — so that he was never swayed by the applause or 
censure of man, but ever acted under a deep sense of duty to his 
country and accountability to his God. ^ 
Long will his memory be precious among the friends of 
Liberty and Religion.

(111) V. Col. JOSEPH WARD [328.3] was in single

prior to that eventful period, he had become conspicuous 
for his ardent patriotism, and his many spirited contri- 
butions to the public prints, filled with touching appeals 
to his fellow-citizens to defend their rights, let come what 
■would. Gen. Ward, upon taking command of the army 
at Cambridge, appointed him his aid-de-camp and secre- 
tary ; his orderly book, for the most part, is in the hand 
writing of Col. Ward. He was afterwards appointed 
Muster-master General by Gen. Washington, taken pris- 
oner at Long Island, in the latter part of the year 1778,

and exchanged in April, 1779 ; for the procurement of 
which the Executive Council of Massachusetts had warm- 
ly interceded. In a letter of grateful acknowledgments 
to that body for this distinguished favor, he says : " It is 
a new incitement to exertions in the cause of freedom ; 
and may that hour alone, which closes my life, termi- 
nate my efforts for the happiness of my country." He 
rejoined the army and continued in the service until Feb., 
1780 ; when he returned and settled in Boston, where 
he m. Prudence, Nov. 30, 1784, daughter of Jacob 
Bird, of Dorchester, andb. Feb. 28, 1765. Some years 
after he removed to Newton, his native town, which he 
represented in the Gen. Court. In 1804, he returned 
with his family to Boston, and d. there Feb. 14, 1812, 
aged 75. His wid., Prudence, d. at Concord, March 9,

Extract from an obituary notice of the death of Col. 
Ward, published in the Columbian Centinel, Boston, 
Feb. 22, 1812 : — 

" In tracing the actions of the amiable patriot who has 
now closed his virtuous career, we behold him, at the com- 
mencement of hostilities in 1775, animating his fellow- 
countrymen by his example and his counsels — pourtray- 
ing the dangers that were about to assail them, and ex- 
hibiting the firmness with which such dangers should be 
met. He stood among the first to unsheath his sword, 
and defend the violated rights of his country. Distin- 
guished by sentiments elevated and patriotic as these, he 
was selected as the Aid-de-Camp of the Commander in 
Chief. He afterwards received the appointment of 



62 WARD FAMILY. 

Muster-master General, with the rank of Colonel. In 
1780, this office was associated with that of Inspector 
General of Discipline. Col. Ward acquiesced with satis- 
faction in this arrangement, and received in a style, equal- 
ly flattering to his character and his conduct, the appro- 
bation of Gen. Washington for the exemplary manner in 
which he had discharged the duties of his office. With 
dignity he retired from the army, possessed of the affec- 
tion and esteem of his brother officers and soldiers. His 
talents adorned, and his virtues were the charm of private 
life. The influence of religion over his mind, was equally 
conspicuous, whether warmed by the genial sun of pros- 
perity, or chilled by the winter blasts of adversity. In 
public transactions, Justice was the pole star, and truth 
the guide of his conduct. 

Firmly relying on this foundation, he considered, that 
he rested on that which would never fail ; with confidence 
he vested his fortune in evidences of property guaranteed 
by the public engagements of his country, and in titles to 
land granted and sanctioned by the faith of the Legisla- 
ture of a State. To the last moment of his life, he advo- 
cated his claims with a clearness of conception, and a 
strength of argument, the truth of which must ever be felt 
and admired. Although he is dead, the principles of jus- 
tice and good faith still live ; and that the widow and the 
orphan may yet feel their influence, is the pi-ayer of a 
sincere friend to suffering virtue." It may be here re- 
marked, that ever since his death, justice has been in a 
profound sleep.

first settlers, and one of that sturdy band, that resisted, 
step by step and day by day, the progress of Burgoyne's 
army, and participated in its capture. In the meantime, 
his wife, with her helpless children, unprotected and ex- 
posed to the ravages of the British soldiery and their 
savage allies, then within a few miles of her dwelling, fled 
to Bennington, forty miles through a wilderness, on foot, 
"with her children, carrying the youngest in her arms, 
and without a man to protect them, or guide, except 
blazed trees, to direct her way. They reached there in 
safety, and quickly followed the battle at Bennington and 
the surrender of Burgoyne.

reside until his death, Aug. 3, 1819. His wid., Lucy, 
d. at Poultney, Jan. 6,1846, at the age of 98 years. The

death : — 

" Died, at his residence in Poultney, on the 3d inst., 
(Aug., 1819,) the Hon. William Ward, aged 76. He 
was one of the first settlers of the town, and during the 
Revolutionary war took an active and zealous part in his 
country's defence. He was a member of the Convention 
which framed the Constitution of the State. He was six 
years one of the Judges of the County Court, for the 
County of Rutland, and twenty-two years Judge of Pro- 
bate, for the District of Fairhaven, 

He served forty years as a Justice of the Peace, and 
represented the town in the State Legislature eighteen

years. He made a public profession of religion more 
than fifty years, and served as a Deacon of a church 
nearly forty years. His health was always remarkably 
good — he was never confined to his bed an hour by 
sickness ; never had a bone broken or dislocated — never 
took an emetic, nor a cathartic. He was never bled, nor 
did he ever lose a meal of victuals, 'till the Friday be- 
fore his death." 

" It ought to be remarked, that, as a neighbor, he 
was universally beloved ; as a citizen, he was highly es- 
teemed and respected ; and, as a Christian, venerated. 
No one said ought against him ; he always performed 
the various duties assigned him, whether public or pri- 
vate, civil or religious, with perfect fidelity and integri- 
ty." His chil. were,

S. Pease, of Albany, N. Y. 

The name of Pease is supposed to have been, originally. Pea. 
The transition from Pea to Peas is a natural one ; the latter being 
the possessive case of the former. The e final, has been in use for 
a long period. In the Arms of an ancient Pease family, a Dove, 
holding in her beak a pea-stalk, with blossoms and pods, as said by 
F. S. Pease, is significant of the origin of the name.

248 INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES. 

INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES. 

BY THE REV. WILLIAM COGSWELL, D.D. 
" WHAT 'S IN A NAME ? " 

Imago animi, vultus ; vitae, Nomen est. — Puteanus. 

Individual Names, or Names of Individuals, were given for the 
distinction of persons, one from another, as Adam, Eve, Noah, 
Abraham, Sarah, Paul and John. Such names have always been 
in use, and, at the present day, are generally termed christian or 
baptismal names. They were adopted originally, to a great extent, 
from the consideration of their signification. As an illustration of 
this remark, we present the following names : — First, of men ; 
namely, Adam — earthy, taken out of the earth; Abel — just; 
Alexander — helper of men ; Andrew — manful ; Benjamin — son 
of the right hand ; Caleb — hearty ; Chrysostom — golden mouth ; 
Constantino — firm; Daniel — judgment of God; David — be- 
loved; Edmund — happy; Edwin — happy victor; Edward — 
happy keeper ; Ellis, (corruptly for Elias) — Lord God ; Erasmus 

— amiable ; Francis — free ; Frederic — rich peace ; Gabriel — 
man of God ; George — husbandman; Godfrey — God's peace ; 
Goodrich — rich in God ; Hector — defender ; Humi^hrey — house 
peace ; Hierome — holy name ; Isaac — laughter ; Israel — pre- 
vailing in the Lord ; John — gracious ; Joseph — increase of the 
Lord ; Leonard — lion-hearted ; Luke — luminous ; Matthew — 
reward ; Moses — drawn forth ; Nathaniel — the gift of God ; 
Neale — blackish ; Nicholas — conqueror ; Oswald — Steward ; 
Paul — wonderful; Phillippe — lover of horses ; Robert — famous 
in counsel ; Roger — quiet ; Reuben — vision of the sun ; Seaborn 

— born upon the sea ; Sebastian — majestic ; Sylvanus — wood- 
man ; Stephen — a crown; Theophilus — lover of God; Thomas 

— a twin ; Vincent — victorious; William — a defence of many ; 
Wilfred — much peace ; Zachariah — the memory of the Lord : : — 
Secondly, of women : namely, Abigail — the father's joy ; Alice — 
noble ; Adeline — descending from nobles ; Barbara — strange ; 
Catharine — chaste ; Clara — bright ; Dorcas — a roebuck ; Elea- 
nor — pitiful ; Eve — giving life ; Florence — flourishing ; Joanna 

— grace of the Lord ; Judith — praising ; Lucia — lightsome ; 
Mary — exalted ; Margaret — precious ; Priscilla — ancient ; 
Rosamund — rose of the world ; Susanna — lily ; Sophia — wis- 
dom ; Theodosia — God's gift ; Ursula — little bear. Thus, chris- 



INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES. 249 

tian names were original!}^ given as expressive of some circumstance 
ot" birth, personal quality possessed, good desired by parents, or some 
other reason. Much importance was attached to the name as indi- 
cating the fortune of the child. Hence the proverb, " Bonum no- 
'men, bonum omen.'''' 

Family names were given for the purpose of particularizing fam- 
ilies. They are a sort of hereditary distinction, and are called by 
the French and English, surnames, because added to christian or 
baptismal names. In the early state of society among the Jews, 
Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Germans, Gauls, Britons, 
indeed among every nation, no individual had more than one name ; 
but in a more advanced or refined period, an additional name was 
given, in order to mark the different families to which individuals 
belonged, as well as to distinguish members of the same family from 
each other. Among the Greeks a few families at Athens and 
Sparta had family names. When the league was established be- 
tween the Romans and the Sabines, to confirm which it was cove- 
nanted that the Romans should add Sabine names to theirs, and that 
the Sabines should add Roman names to theirs. These were termed 
nomina Grentilitia, et cognomina, as their previous names were 
termed prceriomina. Commonly among the Romans, each person 
had three names ; namely, a proper name Qprcenomen, which dis- 
tinguished the individual,) the name of the clan, (nonien,') and the 
family name, cognomen.^ Sometimes also a surname was added, 
which was given on account of some distinguished exploit or re- 
markable event. The proenomen was placed first, and usually writ- 
ten with one or two letters ; as M. for Marcus, Q. for Quintus, On. 
for Cneius. Then followed the nomen ; as Fabius, Julius, (from 
the clan (gens,') Fabian, Julian.) Lastly came the cognomen ; as 
Cicero, Sclpio. In the name M. TulUus Cicero, M. is the prceno- 
men, which distinguishes him from his brother Quintus ; Tullius, 
the nomen, which distinguishes the clan, {gens ;) and Cicero, the 
cognomen, which shows his family. An instance of a surname, 
(agnomen,) is Africanus, added to Sciino ; as Publius Cornelius 
Sdpio Africanus. 

The Hebrews in their genealogies, instead of surnames, used the 
name of the father with Ben, which signifies son, as Melchi, Ben 
Addi; Addi, Ben Cosam ; Cosam, Ben Elmadam ; — that is, Mel- 
chi, son of Addi ; Addi, son of Cosam ; Cosam, son of Elmadam. 
A similar practice prevailed among our English ancestors, as Ceon- 
red Ceolwalding, Ceolwald Cuthing, Cuth, Cuthwinning ; — that is, 
Ceonred, son of Ceolwald, Ceolwald, son of Cuth, Cuth, son of 
Cuthwin, the termination or suffix, ing, meaning son or offspring. 
In the same sense, the Welsh Britons used Ap, (son,) as Ap Owen ; 
32 



250 INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES. 

Owen, Ap Harry ; Harry, Ap Rhese ; — that is, son of Owen; 
Owen, son of Harry ; Harry, son of Rhese. The same may be 
said with regard to the Scotch in the use of Mac, (son,) as Donald, 
Mac Wharter; Wharter, Mac Dowell ; Dowell, Mac Clelland ; — 
that is, Donald, son of Wharter ; Wharter, son of Dowell ; Dowell, 
son of Clehand. With the Irish, the expression for son is Oy or 
0' ; as O'Neal ; Neal, O'Riley ; Riley, O'Brien ; Brien, O'Con- 
nel ; Connell, O'Harra ; — that is, son of Neal ; Neal, son of Riley ; 
Riley, son of Brien ; Brien, son of Connel ; Connell, son of Hara. 
In like manner, the old Normans in their surnames used Fitz, a 
corruption for Fitz, (son,) as John, Fitz Robert ; Robert, Fitz 
William ; William, Fitz Hugh ; Hugh, Fitz Gerald ; Gerald, Fitz 
Herbert ; Herbert, Fitz Roy. 

Surnames began to be used by the French nation about the com- 
mencement of the eleventh century,* and by the English nation 
about the time of William, the Conqueror, in 1066, when the Con- 
quest was achieved, or, as some suppose, as early as Edward, the 
Confessor, who began his reign in 1041. It is certain that the 
occasional use of surnames in England dates beyond the ingress of 
the Normans. But before the Conquest it was usual for persons to 
subscribe to deeds and all legal instruments, with a cross and a sin- 
gle name, without a surname, in the following manner: -[-Ego 
Eadredus confirmani ; -|- Ego Edmundus corroborani ; + Ego Si- 
garius conclusi. In the authentic record of the Exchequer in 
England, called the Doomsday Book, surnames are first found in 
public records in established order. The Scotch date the use of 
surnames about the time the English do ; but it is not certain that 
they are correct in doing it. In England these names were intro- 
duced gradually. They were first assumed by the people of the 
" better sort," generally, who took the names of their estates, and 
it was not until the reign of Edward II., (1307,) that they were 
" settled among the common people fully." In Germany and some 
kindred nations, family names were little used by the commoners 
before the fourteenth century. The most current opinion is, that 
surnames can scarcely be said to have been permanently settled be- 
fore the era of the Reformation, in the sixteenth century. f 

The origin of surnames is various. The greatest number, proba,- 
bly, are derived from towns, villages, seats or patrimonial posses- 
sions. The most ancient, says the learned Camden, are from 
places in Normandy, and countries adjoining it. All names having 
the French Z'e, Du, Des, De la prefixed, or beginning or ending 

* Ducange says the use of surnames in France began about the year 987, 
when the barons adopted the practice of desisrnating themselves by their estates,

INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES. 251 

with Font, Faiit, Beau, Saint, Mont, Bois, Aux, are of this descrip- 
tion. The names of Warren, Mortimer, Percy, Devereaux, Har- 
court, Tracy, Montfort, and Cayly are derived from places in Nor- 
mandy. Indeed, there is scarcely a village in that country which 
has not given a name to some family in England. From places in 
France are derived the names of Courtney, Bollein, Paris, Corby, 
Bohun, Saint George, Saint Andrew, Cressy, Lyons, Loring,* and 
Beaumont. Nearly all the towns, villages and hamlets, also, in 
England and Scotland, have given names to families, as Murray, 
Clifford, Stafford, Gordon, Douglass, Heydon, Barkeley, Leigh, 
Hastings, Hamleton, Booths, Clinton, Cotton, Hume, Stanhope, 
Sydenham, Arlington, Whitney, Wentworth, Fanshaw, Carie, 
Hartshorne, Gilford, Bassett, Howard, Talbot, Lovell, Tirell, Blunt, 
and Bissett. Most of the families in Cornwall have names, a con- 
stituent part of which is contained in the following distich : 

" By Tre, Ros, Pol, Lan, Caer and Pen,f 
You may know the most Cornish men." 

All names, which in England had Of set before them, which in 
Cheshire and the North was contracted into A, as Thomas, a But- 
ton, John a Standish, Adam a Kirby, or which in Latin had Be 
prefixed, were derived from places. The same may be said, to a 
considerable extent, of those names which had Le before them. 
Under the head of local names may be placed also such as Hill, 
Wood, Field, Pool, Pond. 

Next to local names or those derived from places, the most nume- 
rous are those derived from trades or professions, as Archer, Brew- 
er, Brazier, Baker, Carpenter, Goldsmith, Cutter, Fisher, Taylor, 
Potter, Smith, Saddler, Painter, Webster, Wheeler, Wright, 
Wheelwright, Mason, Gardner, Turner. 

Some names have been assumed from office, as Chamberlain, 
Cooke, Marshall, Sergeant, Foster, Fowler, Page, Butler, Clarke, 
Proctor, Abbot, Bishop, Priest, Dean. 

Names have been taken from titles of honor, dignity, or estate, as 
King, Prince, Lord, Baron, Knight, Squire. 

Names also have been derived from bodily or mental quahties, as 
Goodman, Wise, Proud, Strong, Armstrong, Long, Low, Short, 
Little. 

Periods of life have given rise to names, as Old, Young, Child, 

Baby. ♦ 

* The name of Loring, though not found in the Roll of Battel Abbey, by 
Fox, is found in Leland's copy of the Roll, to wliich J.ower, ni his Essays on 
Entrlish Surnames, says " The preference ought unquestionably to be con- 
ceded." The name Loring is derived from Lorraine, a provmoe in France. 

t These words signify in order a town, a heath, a pool, a church, a castle, a 
promontory. 



252 INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY NAMES. 

Some names have been derived from parts of the body, as Head, 
Whitehead, Legge, Foot, Arm, Heart ; and others from the color 
of complexion or dress, as White, Black, Brown, Green ; and others 
again from fruits and flowers, as Pear, Peach, Lilly, Hose. 

Many names are derived from beasts, as Lamb, Lyon, Bear, 
Buck, Fox, Wolf, Hog, Boe, Badger, Hind, Hare ; others from 
birds, as Dove, Lark, Nightingale, Swallow, Peacock, Sparrow, 
Swan, Woodcock, Crow, Wren, Parrott; and others from fishes, as 
Pike, Crab, Bass, Salmon, Haddock. 

A considerable number of surnames have oriirinated from chris- 
tian names, as Francis, Leonard, Herbert, Giles, Lewis, Humph- 
rey, James, Jacob, Daniel, Thomas, Anthony, Alexander. 

The names of Corbet, Goodwin, Goodj-ich, Fabyan, Hervey, 
Howard, Osburn, Payne, Searle, Star, Swain, Wade, Warner, 
HamUn, Talbot, Wade, and Maynard were formerly christian 
names, and in use about the time of William the Conqueror. 

Many surnames are formed by the addition of son to a christian 
name, as Williamson, Robertson, Richardson, Johnson. 

Nicknames or nursenames have, in process of time, become fam- 
ily names : as Bill, or Billy, for William ; Dick, or Dickey, for 
Richard. 

We might proceed to give other specimens of the origin of names ; 
but our limits will not permit us to enlarge. A sufficient number 
has been presented to show that it is almost indefinitely various. It 
is computed that there are between twenty and thirty thousand 
surnames in England alone. Their origin, too, is often curious. 
Persons fond of the study of individual or family nomenclature, will 
be entertained and instructed with the perusal of Camden's British 
Remains, Lower on English Surnames, Chambers' and Brande's 
Dictionaries, and the different Encyclopi'edias on this subject, to 
which we have been greatly indebted in preparing this piece.

torical and Genealogical Register, for 1848 ; a quarterly publication, com-

OEIGIN OF THE NAMES OF THE DAYS OF THE WEEK, AND 
OF THE NAMES OF THE MONTHS. 

Sunday, the first day of the week, now generally termed Sab- 
bath day, was called Sun's day, being a day anciently dedicated to 
the tSiai. 

Monday, a compound word of 3Ioon and dai/ ; a day formerly 
sacred to that planet. 

Tuesday, is from Tnesdaeg, the name of a deity, that presided 
over combats and litigation ; hence Tuesday is Court day, assize 
day, the day for combat or commencing litigation. 

Wednesday, anciently Wodiyi's day, from Wodin, a deity among 
the northern nations of Europe. 

Thursday, from Thor's day ; the day consecrated to Thor, the 
god of thunder. 

Friday, from Friga's day ; a day consecrated to Friga, the 
venus of the north. 

Saturday, from Saturn's day ; a day devoted to Saturn, one of 
the most ancient of the heathen gods ; the reputed son of Callus 
and Terra, (Heaven and Earth,) and father of Jupiter. 

Instead of these names, the early settlers of New England used 
the words, first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh, to de- 
note the several successive days of the Aveek, and the like words, 
up to the twelfth, to designate the several months in the year ; but, 
when writing, they more frequently made use of Arabic numerals, 
from 1 to 12, to designate the months; " because they would avoid 
all memory of heathenish and Idol's names." 

At the foundation of Rome, about 750 years before the Christian 
era, the year consisted of ten months, and of them March was ac- 
counted the first month in the year. Two others, January and 
February, were subsequently added by Numa Pompilius ; whereby 
the year consisted of twelve months, January being the eleventh 
and February the twelfth and last month in the year ; the 
length of which was established by Julius Caesar, who appointed 
it to consist of 365 days and 6 hours ; which 6 hours made one 
day in four years ; and that day every fourth year, added to the 
number of days in February, makes that year to consist of 360 days, 
and is called leap year, on account of its leaping forward one day. 

He also placed January at the Winter solstice, followed by Feb- 
ruary ; whereby January became the first month, March, the 



254 DAYS OF THE WEEK AND MONTHS. 

third, and December the twelfth and last month in the year. This 
is called the Julian Calender. 

January is from the Latin, Januarius, so called from Janus, an 
ancient Italian King, who was deified after his death. A Temple, 
and in it a Statue, was erected in honor of him ; the latter repre- 
sented him with two faces, looking in opposite directions ; upon the 
joasi and upon the /i^^t^re, January being the boundary month be- 
tween successive years, the one face was towards the retiring, the 
other towards the coming year. Hence the expression " Jayms- 
faced^'' now used as a term of reproach. 

February is from the Latin, Februo, to purify by sacrifice, and 
thus signified the month of purification. 

March, from the Latin, Martius, Mars, the god of war. 

April, from the Latin, Aprilis, opening, open ; because in this 
month all things are, as it were, opened and budded. 

May, from the goddess Maia, wife of Jupiter and the mother of 
Mercury ; to her sacrifices were offered on the first day of the 
month. At this late period flowers are sacrificed on that day, if 
not to her. 

June, from Juno, the queen of the goddesses, and patroness of 
marriage and wedded life. 

July, from Julius, the surname of Caius Caesar, the Dictator, 
•who was born in this month. Mark Antony first gave this month 
the name of July ; previously it was called Quintilis, signifying the 
fifth month in the year according to the old Roman calender. 

August was so called in honor of the Emperor, Octavius 
Augustus, who entered upon his first consulate in this month ; 
previous to which it was called Sextilis, six, the sixth month from 
March. 

September, from the Latin, septem, seven, the seventh month. 

October, from the Latin, octo, eight, the eighth month of the 
primitive Roman year. 

November, from the Latin, novem, nine, the ninth month, and 

December also from the Latin, decent, ten, the tenth and last 
month in the year of the early Romans.] 



OLD AND NEW STYLE. 

Style, in Chronology, is the method of computing time accord- 
ing to the JuUan and Gregorian calender. The former is called 
old, and the latter, new style. 

The Julian calender, of which we have already spoken, was 
found to be erroneous, as it contained more than eleven minutes in 
a year too much. This excess amounted to ten days in 1582 ; in 
which year Pope Gregory XIIL, con-ected that calender, and, 
to bring the vernal equinox, which happened on the ninth of March 
in that year, to the twenty-first of that month in future year's, and 
as it occurred in 325, directed that the year 1582 should consist of 
365 days only, and that ten days be abated between the fourth and 
fifteenth of October in that year ; and furthermore, to preserve fu- 
ture regularity in the seasons, he ordered that no year ending a 
century should be leap year, excepting each four hundredth year ; 
whereby three days are abated in every four hundred years, three 
days being nearly equal to eleven minutes for every year in that 
period. 

By each four hundredth year is meant the closing year of that 
number of centuries, that can be divided by 400 without a remain- 
der. Such are leap years of 366 days ; when there is a remain- 
der, they are common years, or years of 365 days. Thus 1600, 
2000, and 2400 are leap years while 1700, 1800, and 1900, are 
common years ; and all other years in a century, which can be di- 
vided by 4 without a remainder, are also leap years, as 1804, 1808, 
1812, &c. 

This calender was soon adopted in most countries, but for a time 
rejected by our Protestant ancestors, on account of its pagan and 
popish origin. 

At length, by an act of Parliament, in 1751, it was adopted in 
England, and thereby extended to her colonies. 

That Act provided for regulating the commencement of the year, 
abated eleven days of September, 1751, the third to be accounted 
the fourteenth, and the year to commence on the first day of Janu- 
ary, 1752. 

The difference between old and new style, was, previous to 1700, 
ten days only : but as that year contained only 365 days, by the 
Gregorian calender, instead of 366, as by the Julian, it became, 
after 1700, eleven days, and another being lost by the omission of 
I ap year in 1800, the difference now is twelve days. 



256 OLD AND NEW STYLE. 

Previous to 1752, two methods of commencing the year pre- 
vailed in England ; the EcchsiaMical, as also the Legal year com- 
menced on the tiventy-jifth of March, and the Historical year on 
the ^^rs^ of January. 

This two-fold practice of beginning the year, led to double dating 
the year, between the first of January and the twenty-fifth of 
March ; as, for instance, 10th of Feb., 1725-6. These figures 
denote, the 4 first the Ecclesiastical and Legal year, beginning in 
March, while the fifth, or suffix (i, denotes the Historical year. 

These months were frequently written in Arabic numbers, in- 
stead of being expressed by their names, and preceded by the num- 
ber of the days in the month. This practice ceased in 1752, when 
the year for all purposes was made to begin on the first day of 
January.
