WILLIAM AND ANNE ROBINSON. 



y\ 



^ T^ILLIAM ROBIXSOX, gentleman, of Dorchester, .^fasfa- 



cluisetts, the central figure of this family -sketcli, was 
desceiulcd from that Wii-liam Kobixson wiiose name appearci 
among tlie early settlers of old Dorchester. 

Until recent years there was room for doubt wlielher the later 
^Villiam was a descendant of the earlier man of the same name, or 
of Jamp:s Robixsox, who was also prominent in the councils of the 
town. The fortunate preservation of original documer;ts in two 
brandies of tlie descendunts of the elder ^\'illiam establislie^ the lino 
as it was publicly announced in the X. E. Historical and Genealogical 
Register, ix. 339, upon the authority of Dr. Edward Jlobinson, of 
Xevr' York City. 

1. William' Robixsox, the emigrant, first appears in our Xcw 
England history, as a member of the Church in Dorclif-ster in the year 
1G3G. His name is in the list of Freemen of IS May. Itj-i2, raid 
on the rolls of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of 
Boston in the following year. 

Xotl'iing v/hatever is known of his parentage or birtli-jilace. flis 
name does not appear in any of the shipping lists thrit liave i. eea 
found, nor is there on record anything by which his age can be 
more than approximately ascertained. If he were twenty-iive at 
the birth of his first child, he may have been born in 1GL5, or even 
much earlier. 

His first recorded purchase of real estate was Feb. 25, 10>ol, 
when he obtained from John Phillips, of Boston, for the sum of £150, 



an estate in Dorchester ''near unto Xaponsett Ivivcr/* with tlie hou:-e, 
barns, etc. thereon, together with several adjacent and outlvin'^' 
parcels ot" uphnid and meadow. 

In IthU, Oct. 7, he sold for £[U] to Tiniotliy Tileston of Dor- 
chestc!-, cooper, a ''little lionse" and ten acres of land on "TiJe-niill 
Creeke, and half a corn water-nii!l standing on tlic tide in tlic 
creeke, coninioniy calletl Salt Creekc or Brooke, near Ca[>taine's 
Xcck." It is s;iid tiiat this mill he had bought of Edward l>reek. 
For more than two hundred years it lias been known as " Tileston's 
Mill," and was standing though probably altered, as lute as l^^f -37. 

lie was made Town Constable in 1G.30, and Kater or Assessor for 
tlie years 1G58, 10 GO and IGGl. 

His wife, and the mother of his children, was that ^Margaret, wb.o 
was ]i\ing as late as 7 Oct. 1GG4, when she united with hiui in a 
conveyance to Timothy Tileston. He married a secontl, Ursula, the 
widow of Samuel llo-ier, but earlier ;tiil, the widov,- of Ste[ihen 
Strccter, whose 5t<;)ry may be read in the Register, '■■ xxxvi. 1Gl% 
and whom he must have taken to wife after July, IGGo.f 

"William Kobinson died 6 July, IGG-S. As told in Eev. John 
Elliot's Diarv, lie was "drawn through bv v'' coiiwhcel of liis mill. 
and was torn in pieces and slain." The place of his burial is un- 
known. 

His v, idow, Ursula, married 15 July, 1G73, Griffin Crafts of 
Roxbury, for her fourth and last husba;id. 

In the files of the Suffolk Co. Probate is this paper : — 

"' My will is that after the burial! of my Bcly & my debts liounosrlj 
pay(h my Loviiii^^ wife Ur.^ula shall have cL- Enjoy my dwellini: iloase 
together with the Orchurd & meadow adjoyning to the same & Ilemn yard

t It ha- been >urii>oscd iti:it Wiliiani Rubinron had a previous wife, Prudence, the grcunds 
for the su;ipo-ition beiri^' rlje somewhat am'ii^iious wordm? of his will; bat a careful 
examination of the evidence-? does not confiriii the writer in that belief, aud he is forced to 
accept the concluiioa that Margaret and Ursula were his only wives.

2. Samuel' Robinsox ( Vi'ilUam^), called by his father his " eldest son," 
and without doubt the child that was baptized June 1-1, 1640, was 

* Orisinal MS. in the bands of a descendant of Samuel in 1SS7. 



a resident of Dorchester, and became proiniiicnt in civil affairs, lie 
was chosen Constable in 1C6G-7, Kater or Assessoi' in 1077. 1G80, 
'S2, 'S8 and '84; vSelectman in 1GS8 ainl ICO'l; R'-pro-entative in 
1701 and DepiUv in 17u2. In the town and chnrrh rt'Cord> his 
nanie is usually distingnished by the prefix of respect. " Mr." 

He was prosperous and acquired a good estate. By his father's 
will he inherited all of the real proj^erty excepting the portions l^e- 
queathed to his l)rotluT Increase. Of the extent and valiui ui his 
inheritance, unfortunately there is no record. The fir>t purchase of 
lands by him that appears in the Registry of Deeds was under date 
of l)ec. IS, 167G, when Jonathan Hill conveyed to him one acre 
'•' v\ithin the great Lots," abutting upon his own pi'operty there. Ou 
the second of May, 1715, wdien seventy-live years of age, he, with 
" the free consent of 3Iary his wife," executed a conveyance to his 
"eldest son Samuel Ivobiusou of Dorchester, husbandman," v.hich 
is of such importance in a genealogical sense, as to warrant more 
than a passing notice here. It embraced all that '' certain Messuaa:e 
or Tenement and several parcels of land hereinafter mentioned and 
described lying Scituate iu Dorchester aforesaid. That is to say, 
my dwelling house, outhouses" etc., " land, pastures, Salt and Fresh 
meadows containing in the whole Sixty acres be it more or less, 
butted and bounded Westerly in j^art with the Country road and 
partly with the Land of Major Robert Spurr and partly with the 
land of Thomas Lions, Northerly partly with the Land of James 
Trott and in part with the Land of Samuel Trott, Easterly with the 
Land of Samuel Trott in part, and partly with the land formerly 
Samuel Hill's, Southerly in part with the highway that leads through 
Dorchester to Naponset Mill, and partly with Land belonging to tlie 
heirs of Ouesiphorus Tilestone." This was, undoubtedly, the home- 
stead inherited from his father, William Robinson, and augmented by 
later purchases of his own. The conveyance also included a lot in 
the Six Acre Lots on the south side of the road to Xaponset, four- 
teen acres of salt marsh ou the Naponset River, nine acres in the 
First Division, eleven acres of woodland abutting upon the '• Five 
hundred Acres Town Land, known by that Name," thirty-four and 
a half acres "lying near a place called Mother Brooks," on the 
south side of the Roxbury line, — '• one half of the said premises 
being in the present actual possession of y* said Samuel Robinson 



8 

J^^l^" "Tlie use. benefit and income profit and improvements of 
one moiety or full Inili" part of all the said Iiousing. T-aiids and other 
jiromi-es" were reserved to himself and v.ife during tluir n:itnr:d 
lives, and the condition of the conveyance was. that the n:!"antr-e. or 
hi.s heirs, shonld. within the space of twelve montlis after ilio lit^iths 
of the grantors, pay to '• our son. ]Mr. John Ko'/iuson Mini.-tfr of 
DiixborouLjh or his heiis the Sum of One llundrtjd pounds, and to 
our Son in Law C'apt. Jonathan GulI'Vi.r ten shillings, haveing 
given him a Marriage portion with his \\ ife." 

■ The date of the mariiage of Samuel Robinson has not yet been 
ascertained. It was probably in IGGo. His wife, the mother 
of his tliree children, was IMary, the oldest child of Ridiard and 
Faith (Withiugton) Uaker of Dorchester. She was bai>ti7,ed "2 (12) 
1G40, and against the name on the church record is written " mar- 
ried Mr. Robinson."' In the Baker Genealogy lately jirinted in 
Register, xliii. p. 282, from the manuscript of Mr. Edmund J. 
P)al-:e!-, her death is stated as occuri'ing Aug. 27, 171i, Imt lier 
tiirnature to thu conveyance above mentioned, shows conchisivcly 
that she was living May 2, 1715, and the death of "Mary, wife of 
Mr. Samuel Rubinson," ^lay 0, 1715, was uudoul)tedly hers. 

Samuel Robinson died Sept. 10, 1718. No will or papers con- 
cerning the administration of his estate are on file. 

The issue of Samuel and Mary Robinson were: —

large estate. The release of the other heirs of his lather's estate, 
which has been already alluded to, au unrecorded instrument still

Samnel Robinson was twice married, — first to Mary Wiswall, 
March 13, 170G, v.ho died Angust 27, 1714,* and second to Dorcas 
Carver, Dec. 11, 1723. lie died March 00, 1734, in the GSth year 
of his age, and his grave-stone may be seen in tlie Dorchester 
burying-ground. Dorcas, his widon-, died Nov. 27, 1740, ai:ed 
about 81, and was buried by his side, tlie foot-stone alone remaining 
to mark the spot. A receipt, given by her to her step-son, A\'il!iani 
Robinson, dated July 24, 1734, as legatee under her husband's will, 
is still prescFved in the hands of his descendants. Her will, dated 
June 10, 1740, and proved Dec. 30, 174G, is on tile in the Loston 
Probate. Twenty pounds are given to the Rev. Jonathan Bowman ■■ 
of Dorchester, a like sum to the poor of the parish at the discretion 
of the deacons, ten pounds to the negro wotnan Yioleta, erne hundred 
pounds to Samuel the son of William Robinson, and the residue of 
her estate to Dorcas the daughter of Peter and iNIary Stone. Iler 
stejvson, William Robinson, and Peter Stone were constituted the 
executors. This will contains no hint of her parentage or of anv 
blood relatives. 

Samuel Robinsonj had but three children, all by his first wife 
Mary : —

of Thomas Trutt. She was born in Dorchester Ajiril 27, 1718,

executor, who represented that the testator died iu Africa. It was 
admitted Aug. 1, 1791, and soon afterwards the estate was settled. 

* Not to be confoanded with this Thomas Trott, is that other man of the same name, a 
black-mith, who was of Durche;ter as early as 1699, then with a wife, and whom we trace 
throuudi divers vieissiiudes a- late as 1714. ' Ic i- evident that he coidd nor Lave been ci'.lier 
a son or grandson of the elder Thomas of Dorchester, but was grandson, throu-di his 
mother, of Robert Stanton, and nephew of Thomas St-inton, who, Aug. 22, 1702, gave hiaa 
six acres of land on Nepor.set River. By wife Abigail he had : —

Feb. 26, 1705, he was admitted an inhabitant of Boston, and the same day permission 
was given him by the S<.lerrmen to set up a smith's shop on the highway at the" " north side 
of the gate next to Roxbury." Jan. 23, 17u9, Thomas Trott belonging to Dorchester, 
" Ciime from tlionce into this town [Boston] some titne in or about y'= month of July l.i<r, 
and being li-ted in Her M.ijesty's Service as one of ye iaontro-<es, having brou'..;ht hi> wife 
and children itito this town, they are likely to become a Tov.-n Charge."^ The next year, 
1710, then of Boston, he sold the land given him by his kinsman Stanton in 1702. In'l714, 
having been warned out of the town, deposed that for "several years pa->t he hath re- 
moveiJ from one Tov.'u to an(jther an 1 unsettled until he settled at Roxbury, and dwelt 
there for more than one year together, and that aljout five months since he came from 
thence and hath resided here iu Boston."

17t)S-9, and again in 1771 ; was commissioned captain in the militia

Brooklyn, N. Y.) ; was chosen Selectman and Survevor in 1773-4; 
Representative in 1774, and the same year a member of the Artil- 
lery Company; and in 1775 was made 3Ioderator of the Selectmen. 
At the outbreak of hostilities, or perhajis earlier, he was commis- 
sioned Colonel, and at once took an active part in the recruiting of 
troops. Fearing an invasion of Dorchester ]>y tlie enemy, his family 
were hurried from their home a few days after the Lexington fight, 
and sought refuge in Stoughton under the hospitable roof of Samuel 
Tucker, whose wife was a cousin of Mrs. Robinson. Here the 
youngest child of the family was born a few weeks later, and was 
baptized in the meeting-house under the name of the illustrious 
comrnander-in-chief. The house in Dorcliester became the recruit- 
ing station for the regiment, and the temporary residence of alarmed 
families from the '• neck," who occupied it until the return of its 
proper occupants later in the season. ]\Ieantime Colonel Robinson 
was with his troops, and just prior to the evacuation of r>oston by 
the English army in Marcii, 1776, was stationed on Dorchester 
Heights. After the departure of the enemy he was quartered in the 
city, and died of the small-jtox July 20, 177G, being buried by night 
in a tomb in the Granary burying-ground. 

Lemuel Robinson was married in Boston, by the Rev. Dr. 
Cutler, to Jeru?ha, daughter of George^ ]Minot.* ._ She was born

THE EOBIiS"SO^^ ESTATES. 



Tavo estates in Dorchester were, in former times, identified witli 
the history of our Kc>'jinson family. Tiie first of tliese was the 
ancestral home, descending in the male line until about the close of 
the last century, when, in the division of the inheritance, it passed 
into the hands of femal-j branches, and, eventually, entirely away 
f)-om the family. The second was the handsome estate that fell to 
Colonel Lemuel Eobinsou on the death of his maternal grandfather 
in 17u2, and whicli, after a century's occupation by his daughters 
and daughters' heirs, in gradually lessening area, has passed, also, 
into the possession of strangers. 

The locations of both these estates have been determined, and the 
precise boundaries of the second can be accurately desci-ibed. 

Where our emigrant, William Kobinson, first lived after his 
arrival in Dorchester in or before 1G3G, and befure his purchase of 
the first of these estates, we can only conjecture. In December, 
16-15, ''there was given to Edward ])reck (by the hands of most of 
the ijihabitants of this town) smelt brook Crecke one the Condicon 
that he doe set a mill there." It is certain that Breck immediately 
built the mill, and th:it lie sold it to A\'illiam Iiobins':»n. The stream 
Called variously Smelt Brook, Salt Creek, and Tide-mill Creek, 
flows into the Xeponict Hiver from its west bank near its mouth, 
separating "Captain's Xeok" from the main land, its source being near 
what is now Harrison Square. Breck's mill was built for grinding 
corn, and was on the present Mill Street, where it crosses the stream. 
William Bobinson prubably lived in the ''little house" near by, 
which he sold in liJG-l with ten acres of land and one half of the 
mill t(j Timothv Tileston. It was here that he met his violent death 



43 

a few years later, and from thence liis body was borne aloni;- the 
"Lower Road" to his lionie, a mile distant. There is no record of 
the sale, by the heirs, of his reiualning interest in the mill. 

On Feb. 2r>, 1G51-2, probably wliile living in the "little house" 
near the n^ill, our ancestor bought of John Phillips the hitter's im- 
pro^■ed estate on the Lower I\oad, containing in area about thirty-two 
acres. Phillips was a "biscuit maker," or baker, who had been long 
prominent in town alFairs, and. had jiccunmlated considerable pro- 
perty. He had removed to Boston in 1650, and afterwards became 
one of the founders of, and a deacon of the Second Church. In 
Clapp's History it is said that his homestead was on Leeds's Lane, 
now Savin Hill Avenue, but the records show that he was a large 
holder of realty in other parts of the town as well. 

The house lots of most of the early settlers were between Mount 
r>owdoin and Savin Hill, in the northerly part of the town, but the 
allof-inents to freemen gradually extended the settlement towards the 
Nvest and south. In 1G33 Israel Stoughton was given right to erect 
a mill on the Xcponsct at th.e place known as the "lower falls," and 
the next year the selectmen laid out a " cartway" leading to the [)lace. 
This was perhaps the beginning of the highway which was im- 
proved from time to time, known soon as the "country road from 
Dorchester to Xeponset mill," later as the "Upper Eoad," and now 
as Washington Street. It seems to have been formally established 
as a highway in 1(361. The "field called the Great Lots" began 
" a little south of ^Meeting House Hill, and extended to the 
Neponset,"'^" being crossed by the Upper Road.f "While the 
road to Stoughton's mill was developing, a similar operation was 
going on east of it, a road to "Pine Xeck" being laid out in 1661, 
followed by the projection of another through the " Six acre lots "

that there was at that time a well recoguLzed "old road" between Spurr's Hill and the 



Mill 



44 

ultimately reaching tlie Xcpoiiset at the mill, known first as the 
''Lower Eoad," and now as Adams Street. For many years 
these two avenues, the Upper and Lower Koads, were the only 
thoronghtarcs between Boston Xeck and the bridge at Stougliton's 
mill. They wound around the bases of the hills and avoided the 
gwam})s in unstudied curves that liave been preserved to our day. 
The large area enclosed by them was in hill and dale, meadow and 
marsh. Here were the Great Lots,* the Six and Eight acre Lots, 
and the Great Ix)t Ends. Li the early part of this century, adven- 
turous spirits, seeking more direct communication with their 
neighbors than tlie devious Avindings of the Upper and Lower Ivoads 
allowed, projected a "turnpike," straight as the arrow flies, bisecting 
the wide area between the ancient highways, striking the Neponset 
bridge at the joining of the two. Old farms were cut in twain and 
cross streets took the place of the old lanes. Later the turnpike 
becauie Dorchester Avenue. To-day the entire area is divided and 
sub-divided by well built streets lined with substantial residences. 
Within this territory both of the Robinson farms were located, and 
both are now crossed by the railroad tracks of the Shawmut branch. 
Phillips, while a resident of Dorchester, had been busy acquiring 
real estate. In 1G35 it was ordered in town meeting that he should 
have "two acres of land that lyes betwixt the ends of the great lotts 
and three acres tliat is granted to Alexander ^liller." In 163G he 
was granted "six acres next to Goodman ]\Iin<jt and Richard Collicot 
in the fresh marsh." In 1039 he bought of Thomas Hatch "a great 
lott Avith a howse on that 16 akers " with other land besides, and in 
1642 he obtained by exchange from Christopher Gibson "the end of 
his great lott that lyeth to John Phillips great lots ends." 

* In a recent letter to tlie writer from Mr. Daniel W. Baker occur the following lines 
relating to the Great Lots, Tliey are given a place here as the conclusions of a careful 
student of the early history of Dorchester. 

"I think it probable that the tract referred to in the town records as the 'Great Lots' 
was somewhat ditfcrent at different dates. What was meant for town record purposes was 
such tract as was farmed in common at the date of recurd, being enclosed by one f'nt e, 
which fence was maintained by town authority (tlioughat tl;e land-owner's expense) while 
in this state. As from time to" time individual owners assumed the respousibiiity of main- 
taining euch his own fence, enclosmg his own particular lot, the town authority was with- 
drawn, but was still exercised over other tracts which had been cleared from forest and had 
been fenced in common." 



45 

All of these acqiii^itious were in the region that has been mentioned. 
The propcrtv that lie sold to ^VilliaIn Kobinson is described in the 
convevaiice us his "dwelling house in dorehester neare unto Xapon- 
sctt lAiver, with all outhouses, barnes, stables, cowhouses, yards, 
gardens, orchards, and all other Appurtenances thereunto in any 
wise belonging and also severall parcells of laud meadow and upland 
hereafter mentioned and cx[)ressed that is to say one parcell of land 
or fence estimated five acres bee it more or Icsse, also an eight acre 
lott he hath bought of William lilake of Dorchester lying within 
fence and also fowerteenc acres of meadow adjoyning unto the said 
eight acre lot. Also fower great lott ends contayning by estimation 
thirty two acres be they more or less." The consideration was X150. 
There is no reason to doubt that this estate became the homestead of 
AVilliam Kobinson, and that a portion of it, at least, was the pro- 
perty described in las will printed in full on a previous page, and 
given therein to his eldest son Samuel. Subsequent deeds locate it 
as west and north of the Lower Koad, reaching certainly from the 
present ]Minot Street to some distance south of Codman Street, with a 
frontage on the Lower Road near the junction of Codman Street. The 
land upon the opposite, or south side of tiie road which he distinctly 
tells us he bought of John Minot and others, was the share given to 
his youngest son Increase, and v\ith this we have no further concern. 

The widow Ursula did not long interfere with her stepson's exclu- 
sive enjoyment of the estate, for in five years she married Grifiin 
Crafts and went to lioxbury. 

Samuel Robinson materially added to his domain, purchasing at 
various times contiguous pieces towards tlie north until his bounds 
reached to the south line of the Trutt estate, and \vestward until he 
had acquired a frontage on the Upper Road. lie bought also on the 
south side of the Lower Road north of the present cemetery. As we 
have seen he disposed of his estate before death, providing for his 
daughter Gulliver and son Jolm out of his personal property, and 
o-ivinc: the realtv to the elder son Samuel. 

At his father's death in 1718, his mother having already departed, 
Samuel Robinson, Jr., entered into the full possession of the estate. 



46 

As oarlv as in 1707 he had commenced the purchase of land adjoining 
his fatlier's, and in 1720 lie bouglit of Joseph Leeds four acres in tli3 
"Six Acre Lors" at the bend in the Lower ro.id opposite the junc- 
tion of the present Marsh Street and Ciranite Avenue, thereby hu'gely 
increasing liis frontage upon the liiglnvay. A portion of this hist 
named purchase is now in the occupation of ]Mr. F. L. Pierce. At 
his death in 173 i ho followed tlic example of his father and grand- 
fathui-, and instead of dividing the realty, satisfied the claims of his 
only other child out of his personal estate, and left the house and 
hinds to his sou A\ illiam, the widow being amply provided for. 

So at the age of twenty-seven ^^'illiam Kobinson became the owner 
of quite an extensive and valuable domain, there being in the aggre- 
gate over one hundred acres of orchard, pasture and tilled land 
within the area bounded on the east and west by the tvro great roads, 
south of what is now Beaumont Street. Here he lived until his 
sudden dcatli in 17G1 at the age of fifty-four. His granddaughter 
Dolbeare, in her old age, told the writer's brother that "he had no 
occupation, but enjoyed himself in riding and hunting." AVith his 
death the hereditary succession to the estate by the eldest son ceased, 
and it was divided between the heirs, consisting of the widow, — the 
eldest son Lemuel, then married and living with his mother's parents 
on the Upper Road, — Samuel, wdio married six months later and 
lived on the estate, — Ann, then wife of Samuel Payson, — and 
Jerusha, Zibiah and Joseph, minors. ^Ir. Payson improved his 
wife's portion by erecting the house now standing at the corner of 
Codman and Carruth Streets, owned by ]Mr. James Pope, where he 
lived until his death. Jcrusha's portion, now bisected by Fredcrica 
Street, adjoined the Payson on the east, and the house where she lived 
with her son "William Melius is that known as the Glover place. 
The widow of William Robinson married Captain Beale, and re- 
moved to Quincy. Lemuel, it will be remembered, died during the 
War. In 1785 his portion of the estate, about forty acres, probably 
lying south of the present Codman Street, was purchased by his 
son-in-law, John Mears. After the widow Beale's death in 1702, 
the distribution of the remainder of the estate was effected, Xathn'--'-' 



47 

Blake becoming the largest purchaser. Blake's house was on 
Adams Street a few rods south of Codman. Ilis purchases event- 
ually includotl all the frontage on the west and north of Adams 
Street from about the railroad crossing to, or beyond ^Minot Street, 
including the shares of Mrs. Melius and Samuel Robinson. In 1803 
jNIr. Blake sold the lot at the bend of Adams Street (now the F. L. 
Pierce property) to Jonathan and Daniel IMerce, and after the death 
of liis widow in 1808 (not 1803 as incorrectly printed on page 19) 
the heirs disposed of the remainder. 

The house occupied by William^ Eobinson before his death in 
17G1 is known to have been on the west side of Ailams Street in the 
vicinity of the present school-house. ^Irs. Dolbeare said that her 
father, the colonel, ''pulled down the old house where his fatlier lived, 
and built on its cellar a building for his hired men, called the 'bar- 
racks.'" This building was standing, in a ruinous condition, within 
the memory of those now living. There is some evidence that the 
house occupied by the earlier generations was north of this, and 
reached by a lane, perhaps where New Minot Street is. 

The other Hobinson Estate was upon the Upper Road, south of 
Ashmont Street, and reaching eastward as flxr as the present Carruth 
Street. 

Could Thomas Trott, after his long sleep of one hundred and 
thirty years in the Dorchester grave-yard, assume his earthly form 
and revisit the scenes of his youth and old age, two only of the ancient 
landmarks would greet his eyes, marking the spot where his life was 
spent. Haifa mile south of the old town-hall, on the easterly side 
of Washington Street, can be seen in this year 1800, the stone 
walls that mark the entrance on either side to '' Tolman's lane." 
Here was the northerly boundary of bis farm. Should he pass to 
the rear of the modern house that covers the site of his ancient 
dwelling, he would see there, in the old door-yard, the huge boulder 
about which he played as a child, and which neither time or the 
hand of man has altered. All else is changed. Old bounds are 
gone ; a street divides his acres from west to east ; the " turn- 



48 

pike" crosses them diagonally from north to south; railroad trains 
whiz over the fields, and on the eastern contincs Carruth Street, with 
its line of pretty residences, occupies his meadows. 

To trace the prior ownership of this estate which he left to his 
grand.ion, except by induction, is impossible. Xo map of the earlv 
grants to Dorchester settlers exists, and the transfers of realtv as 
recorded are so meagre in their descriptions that but few can be 
recognized. But we know that the emigrant Trott was the owner 
of fifty acres in the Great Lots, and that when the Upper Road was 
laid out the Trott farm was crossed by it, a portion reraainino- on 
each side. AMit-n the settler made his will in 1()94 he gave to the 
young grandchild that bore his name, and to his sister, "sixteen 
acres of land which lieth about their fathers hous and a letle hous 
which standeth upon it wdiicli they live in, their mother relict to mv 
son Thomas to have the improvement of all I have given to these 
ray to gran Children." The father had just met his death by an 
accident, lleeords are silent concerning the after life of the youno- 
widow and the little girl. Both were probably dead when the emi- 
grant's widow, Sarah, then aged and infirm, made her will in 1711. 
We cannot reasonably doubt that the estate thus bequeatlied to 
Thomas, 3d, was the same on which he lived, and where he died in 
1762. By contemporaneous deeds it appears that adjoining pro- 
perty was owned by the younger sons of the emiorant, nrobablv 
their shares of the original farm. 

Early in life our Thomas married Zibiah, the daughter of Isaac 
Royall, a near neighbor, and the owner of land ou the same side of 
the Upper Road. Four children were born to them, one of whom 
died in childhood. The eldest, Lemuel, graduated at Harvard in 
1730, and soon after died abroad. Zibiah, the older of the tv.'o 
girls, man-ied John Crevath and went to Boston, and the younger, 
Ann, married our William' Robinson. So it came that as Thomas 
Trott and his wife advanced in years they took into their house the 
grandchild Lemuel, named for their own son, and, eventually, made 
him their heir. He, in his turn, married, and brought his wife 
home to aid in the care of his grandparents. Their wills are on 



49 

rcconl. That of Thomas Trolt, dated Xov. 24, 17G0, gives to his 
wife the improvement of the estate during life ; to his daiigliters 
Crevath and Robinson, each £06. 13. 4. in addition to what he had 
alre;uly : given them; to grandson Tliumas Crevath £133. G. 8., 
with reversion to the other Crevath children, Lemuel, Zibiah, Mary 
and Elizabetli ; and to Lemuel Rol)inson all the rest of the estate. 
The widow Zibiah made her will March 8, 17t)4, and with the ex- 
ception of small legacies to her daughters, left all that she had to 
the favorite grandson. Of the life and fortunes of Lemuel Robin- 
son we have had glimpses on a previous page. His share of his 
father's estate on the Lower Road, added to the Trott inheritance, 
made him a large proprietor, and as the land was all in tillage it 
was necessary to employ a considerable force of laborers in its culti- 
vation. To acconnnodate these he built upon the site of his father's 
bouse, the building called " the barracks." At his death the widow 
was left with eight children, the oldest scarcely sixteen, and the 
youngest a babe in arms. Six years later the daughter Ann married 
Nathaniel Blake, and took, as her portion of the estate, a house and 
land ou the Lower Road south of Codman Street. Five years after- 
^Yards Zibiah married John Dolbeare, and went to live with him on 
the adjoining estate, just north of Tolman's Lane, v.hich in former 
times had been the Royall home. In 1784 Thomas Trott Robinson, 
the oldest son, sold to John Mears the house and about two acres 
off the Bouth-west corner of the estate. An old survey of the lot 
bought by ^Ir. Mears indicates a street frontage of about 2o0 feet, 
by a depth of 400 feet, the house being close to its north line. In 
1817, after the widow Robinson's death, a final division of the estate 
was made. From a survey made by T^Iather "Withington at that 
date it appears that the home farm was a tract Go 6 feet in width, 
extending from the " Great Road " on the west to lands of William 
Tolman and the AVithingtons on the east, that is to say, to the line 
of the present Carruth Street. On the north it was bounded nearly 
its entire length by Tolman's lane, on the south by John Mears 
(nearest the Great Road), Samuel TopliiT and Ichabod Frost, all 
the last holding under 'earlier conveyances from the Robinson heirs,

iiidicatiug a greater wielth of the estate at a previous time. Tlie 
frontage upon the Great Uoad -was but about 300 feet, the elbow 
made by Tolinan's I^ane cutting away the north-west corner, and 
the sale to Mears in 1 Tj^i having made inroads at the soutli west. 
At the division the larger portion of this mapped tract passed into 
the hands of the younger Jolui ]Mears (the son of Sarah Robinson 
by her first husband, John ^Nlears, Sr., Avho liad died in 1707), and 
until a conll>arati^L'Iy h\te day his descendants liave occupied the old 
house in which Thomas and Zebiah Trott lived and died. A 
modern house marks the site of the ancient one. It was about 150 
feet from the street, approaclud by a swcc])ing driveway between 
old trees, most of which are now gone. The main entrance was in 
the middle of the front, the rooms on either side, and a deep L 
reaching back in tlie rear. It had been built in sections, the north- 
erly one being very old, — "two hundred years," — it is said. It 
seems probable that t!)is was tlie original Trott house, the newer 
portion having been built, perhaps after the death of the aged widow 
Sarah, by Thomas the third. The barn was near Tohnan's lane, 
north-east of tlie house. In it were stored the field-pieces smuggled 
out of Boston under the noses of tlie Briti>]i sentries in the early 
days of the occupation. It was taken down by ]Mr. Mears, and the 
barn of the present day, in tlie rear of the house, is the one built by 
him to take its place. 

South of the })roperty bouglit by ]Mea)'s in 1784, on what was 
Kobinson land at Col. Lemuel's death, there was to be seen as late 
as 1845 an old cellar, wiiich, it was said by ]Mrs. Dolbeare, was that 
of an older Trott liouse. l\n-haps it was all that was left of the 
little house mentioned in the will of Thomas Trott, senior, as the 
home of his grandchildren. 

It will be remembered that Col. Robinson's daughter Zibiah mar- 
ried John Dolbeare and occupied the place on ^Vashington Street 
north of Tohnan's lane. Here, for many years preceding her 
death in 1855, she and her widowed sister, Mrs. Spear, lived to- 
e;ether, tlie last of their o-eneration. Tohnan's lane extended from 
the Upper to the Lower Road, but not in a straight line. All but 
its western end is now in public use as Ashmont Street. Thomas

Tolraan, whose will was made in 1711, lived in a house on the 
northerlv side ofthehine, midway between AA'a^hinuton Street and 
Dorchester Avenue, I^aac Ri)yall,* the carpenter, owning hmd west 
of him, se[)aratin2: the Tohnan pr()[)orty Irom the street. Samuel 
Jones ^^■as his neighhur on t!ie north, and the I'rott tarm adjoined 
hini on the south. Tolman's liouse-lot and j)asture reaeiied east- 
ward nearly to Dorchester Avenue, the house ot iiis son Daniel 
standing at what is now the corner of Ashniont Street and the 
Avenue. Directly ea.>t of Daniel's house-lot was a tract reaching 
through to the Lovrer lioad, bequeathed by the will of Thomas to 
his son Daniel. 0\er the southern line of this })ro{icrty the lane 
was in use at an earlv date for access to the ln)uses of Thomas ;ind 
Daniel. In 1700 Thomas Pearce, Sr., owned a small lot of an 
acre and a quarter with a frontage of about 200 feet on the Up[)er 
Koad, preventing the continuation of the lane to that thoroughfare. 
Pearce sold to l-aac Poyall, Jr., and the lane, jiroljably by an 
arrangement with the Trotts, was turned at right angles towards the 
south, and, again, at a distance of 200 feet, towards the west, 
reaching the road between the Koyall and Trott properties. It is 
this end of the lane, with its right-angled elbow, that is still pre- 
served, the stone walls that bound it serving to conspicuously mark 
its location. 

About the same tirjie (1706) that the younger Royall bought 
the Pearce lot, he bought of John Plum a square lot of one 
acre immediately adjoining it on the north. Isaac Koyall, the 
father, owned the land north and east of the Plum lot. On this lot 
Isaac lived utiril his removal to St(.)Ughton in 172(>, then selling his 
house lot to Thomas \Vhite. In the hou^e in v>]iich he lived, Mr. 
Dolbeare and his wife lived and died. Isaac lu^vall, Sr., died in 

1720, having previously conveyed to his son Robert the house and 
lands north, and west of the son Isaac's. Here Kobert lived, and 
died in 175G, leaving but one child Josejih, who was born May 13, 

1721. This Joseph early went to Antigua, and became the man- 

• The fir-t wife of Isaac Royal!, Sr., was Ruth, th-^ daughter of Thomas Tolnian, Sr., 
and si-ter of the Thomas Toiman of Tohiiaii's h\ne. Tht-re is uo reeoid of purchase of the 
estate on the U|)[ er Road by Rfivall, and its proximity to the Toiman lands makes it possi- 
ble that he received it with liis wife, as a part of her dowry. 



ager of the extensive estates there of liis relative, tlie lion. Isaac 
lioyall. From the West Indies he went to London, and died there 
June 3, 1814, in Great Cumberland Street, aged 03. There is no 
evidence that he ever returned to this coiuitrv. His mother lived a 
widow on the homestead until 1773, and during her life he carefullv 
provided for her comfort through the agency of friends in the neigh- 
borhood. How his estate e&<-'apcd confiscation it is not easy to see. 
He was an uin'ompromising Tory, and in IIS'2 gave his Dorcliester 
realty to his distant cousin Penelope Vassall, herself of Toi-y strain, 
rather than to his nearer relatives of different political leanings. 
Fii'ty years ago he was remembered in the older generation as 
"English lloyall." It is believed that he never married. 

The widow Penelope Vassall was the only daughter of an older 
Isaac Royall, and sister of the Hon. Isaac, the refugee, in whose 
service Joseph Royall had gone to tlie A\'est Indies.* Her husband 
was Henry Vassall of Cambridge, the owrscr of extensive planta- 
tions in Antigua, who died ]\Iarch 17, 17G9. There is ample evi- 
dence that, through political and other causes, her aflhirs were in a 
greatly embarrassed condition after the Revolution. In her strait- 
ened circumstances she sold the Royall lands by parcels. Ezra 
Badlam, Feb. 20, 17^3, bought from her five acres of pasture land, 
bounded east by the heirs of Lemuel Robinson and by Joseph How, 
and west by the Upper Road. On ^lay 15, 1784, Stephen Badlam 
bought from her nine acres of pasture adjoining E^ra Badlam's pur- 
chase, and north of it. Both of these properties were soutli of the 
Trott farm. August 10, 1784, Desire Tolman bought from her the- 
homestead, eonsi.-ting of throe and a half acres, with the liouse,. 
bounded north on Ebenezer Jones, east on lands of Aquila Tol- 
man deceased, south on the Tohnan lands and Benjamin Dolbeare 
(the old John Plum lot), and west on the Upper Road. "With this- 
last was included tlie barn and orchard lot on the opposite side of 
the road. The old Royall homestead afterwards was known as tht^ 
"Dorr place."

PORTION OF DIARY OF WILLIAM^ ROBINSON (13).* 



"Shipped as maiu-topman on board the private armed ship Franklin, 
Josepli Robinson, Commander, for a four mouths cruise, iu September 1779. 
Cruised off Newfoundland, took one Prize, thence to the Bahama Islands, 
meeting with no success; then went off Sandy Hook, and cruised until some- 
time in December, took three or four prizes, returned to Salem, where the 
sliiji was frozen up till the month of ^larch in that terrible winter of 17S0. 

'' In March entered on board the ship Pilgrim of Beverly, Joseph Robin- 
son, Commander. Cruised ofi' New York till the last of June, took five or 
six prizes, put into Newport twice to land prisoners, the vessels we had 
taken, being armed, had a large complement of men; landed from seventy 
to eighty each time; last time we returned to Beverly, where the ship was 
refitted, and I shipped again for a six months cruise. 

"Sailed in July, cruised off Cape Clear, on the coast of Ireland, and in 
the chops of the English Channel, last of November or first of December, 
put into Bilboa with one prize, having stranded and sent three or four home. 

Refitted the ship, sailed running down the Trades until within three or 
four degrees of Barbadoes, where we cruised until we took a Brig and two 
Ships from London, bound to the Islands with cargoes of provisions and 
dry goods. One of them, the Mary, was armed with twenty-four guns with 
a complement of ninety odd men, which we took after an action of one and 
a half liours. 

" Arrived at Beverly the last of February with the Prizes. Sailed again 
as soon as the ship was refitted, wliich was in May, for the coast of New- 
foundland. Fell in with and took two or three of the annual tieet. Was 
chased off" by a Frigate. Ran for the west coast of Ireland. Took several 
Prizes, one of which was a Sloop of War Brig that had hove her guns over- 

* \Villi:iin Rohin^on, eldest son of C.ipt. Sanmcl, was horn in Dorchester, Sept. 20, 1762,

board in a gale of Wind. She was from the West Indies with dispatches 
from Adiiiiral Rodney. Had on board a Po-t Captain by the name of 
Henry Siaitli. Also a ^faster Commander and oilier otn..ers. After 
cruising sometime longer and taking two or three more Prizes, put all 
prisoners on boanl a neutral ship. Captain Smith giving his word and honor 
that he wuiild use his intliience to have an equal number of Americans 
exchanged, that he would not serve until he was exchanged. I understood 
afterwards that he fulfilled his word, and that Captain Maidey was exchanged 
for Captain Smith. We then put into IJrest with a Prize Brig loaded with 
sugar, refitted and coppered the ship and sailed. Arrived home the last of 
September or Hrjt of Octuber, after taking three or four more Prizes. 
After refitting and manning the ship, sailed for Marblehead in December 
1781, where we went to make up our complement of men. 

''Cruised to windward of Barbadoes, took several Prizes, one of which 
was the Prince William Henry, Packet from Falmouth for Barbadoes 
with the mail. Sent several prizes into St. Pierre, Martinique, put into 
St. Pierre, watered and relittt-d tlie ship. Sailed to leeward iu company 
with the Poius, Franklin and Brutus of Salem, and the Brig Faulkner of 
Philadelphia on an expedition to take the Island of Tortola, in which Vt'e 
failed, owing, as was supposed, from their having received information from 
^Martinique of our intended attack. Crui^^ed sometime to leeward iu com- 
pany with the Porus. Took one Ship bound to Jamaica, sent her into St. 
Kitts. Beat up to windward of Barbadoes, was chased off, j)ut into St. 
Pierre, watered and sailed, stopped two or three days at St. Kitts; sailed 
to the northward. Took a Packet Brig from Jamaica bound to Falmouth. 

" Cruised sometime oft the coast of Nova Scotia. Took a ship from the 
West Imlies bound to Halifax, returned to Beverly with our Prize. Some- 
time in September 1782, after refitting, we proceeded to Portsmouth where 
we shipped men suflicient to make up our crew. The next morning after 
sailing, at dayligjit saw two ships to eastward v.-liich proved to be the Chat- 
ham 50 gun ship, and a Sloop of War which we had run out of sight during 
the chase. Both ships came in, anchored in the afternon of the next day 
and commenced firing on the Pilgrim, hulled her in about twenty places." 



IIOBIXSOX GENEALOGIES IN PREPARATIOX, 



Men'TIOX has been made on a jtreceding pnge of the f:enealorric;il work 
issued by the Rev. Edward Ro!>uison, D.D. This was confined to those 
descendants of tlie emigrant William.' Robinson that came through his 
grandson John' of Duxbury. 

The Rev. Lncieu Moore Robinson, of Pliihideiphia, Pa., is preparing a 
genealogy of tlie descendants of the emigrant, through his son Incukasi:' 
of Taunton, the most prolific branch of the jjareut stem. For the first four 
rrr.pr.,..ijinT>q ''otli ni.-i''e O-'-id femnlc line-^ will be traced as fully as po'^.-ible; 
in the later generations only the male lines will be given. In the fourth 
generation froai the emigrant, there were, so far as known, through the Taun- 
ton line, William,'' In-CKkase,'' Josiafi.'* .John^ and Geoiigp:* (Increase,' 
Increose,'^ Williairi}), Eben'ezer^ and Josiah* {Ehenezer,^ Increase,^ ]Vil- 
lioin^), concerning whom nothing has been published. Any information in 
regard to any of these lines will be gratefully received by Mr. Robinson.* 

iMr. Charles E. Robinson, of New York, has in preparation for the press 
another genealogical work, intended to embrace all of the Robinsons known 
to have been here in the early days of the colonies. In order to facilitate 
his labors, a list of the principal heads of families in his manuscript is here
