INTRODUCTION. 



This genealogy has been prepared from material collected 
from time to time by the publisher, and which has been 
furnished him by relatives, with the end in view of pre- 
serving in enduring form a concise record of the William 
Snow family, and that all interested may be in possession 
of a copy. 

It would not be at all surprising that in a work of this 
kind, involving as it does so many names and dates, that 
some errors and inaccuracies may have appeared, although 
due care has been exercised to make it as nearly correct as 
possible. 

The publisher desires to express his grateful acknowl- 
edgments to Dr. Louis F. Snow, Mrs. Louise B. Clarke, 
and to others related to him by kinship, who have so kindly 
assisted him by furnishing much available material and 
through whose efforts the publication of this work has been 
made possible. 

He is also greatly indebted to Mr. C. E. Leonard, Secre- 
tary-General of the " Mayflower Descendants," for valuable 
information concerning our family.

THE WILLIAM SNOW FAMILY. 



List of Abbreviations.— b., born; m., married; d.,died: mos., months; yrs., years. 

1 William Snow was born in England in 1624, was brought 
to this country by Richard Derby in the year 1635, to whom he 
was apprenticed and assigned to Edward Doten, of Plymouth, 
Mass., in 1638, to serve him seven years. He was of age in 1645, 
and his name is found among those able to bear arms at Plymouth 
in 1648. He settled at an early date in Duxbury, Mass., but 
probably was not a householder or not married in 1645. He was 
among the first settlers of the town of West Bridgewater, Mass., 
and took the oath of fidelity among the first in 1657. He mar- 
ried Rebeckah Browne, daughter of Peter Browne, who came in 
the Mayflower, 1620.* He died in 1708, aged 84 years. He had 
been living with his son William. His will is dated 1699, and 
proved in 1708. 

In a large volume bound in vellum, now in the Roll Office, 
Chancery Lane, London, are records of a few of the early emi- 
grants to New England. On the cover of the volume containing 
the earliest records yet discovered is this inscription : " A Booke 
of Entrie for Passengers by ye Comission and Souldiers according 
to the statutie passing beyond the Seas, begun at Christmas, 1631, 
and endnig at Christmas, 1632." In it were originally about two 
quires of paper, all of which is filled with the records indicated 
oil the cover. The front of the book appears to have been in- 
tended for the entry of the names of soldiers. The other end for 
emigrants, travelers, traders, etc. The part containing these entries 
is entire. The volume is not paged, but the dates follow in order, 
which is ample for reference. 

The first entry of names of persons for New England is on page 
6. The next volume, containing records of persons emigrating to 
New England, is also in the Roll Office. It was formerly among

he records and documents at Carlton Ride (on the northerly side 
of St. James Park, now 1859 being demolished). I should not 
say it was found there for I am not aware that it was ever lost, 
hut like thousands of other papers and books of records it was de- 
posited there for safe keeping. But during the two hundred and 
twenty-four years which have elapsed since the volume was made, 
it has during some part of that period not been very safely kept 
for near a third of it has been damaged by laying long in water or 
a damp place ; yet this damage does not extend but two or three 
inches from the foot of the first pages and nearly the whole of it 
can be read. The volume contains about three quires of foolscap 
paper and is bound in vellum. 

On the vellum wrapper or cover is this inscription: 

" The Register of the names 
of all ye Passenger (s) wliioli 
Passed from ye Port of 
London for an whole 
yeare ending at 
xmas IGoo "' 

XII Jo April in 1635 (following tlio entries of the passenger lists of the 
" Elizabeth and Ann" and fo the iiKrease) occurs the following:— In the 
Suzan and Ellin, Edward Payne Mr. for New England. These parties herein, 
under expressed have brough certificate from the Minister and Justices of 
their Conformitie and that they are no Subsedy men. Then follows the list 
of fifty-five i)ersons among whom appears 

William Snowe —Hist, and Geneal. Begister, Vol. I4.

Mass. He married Rebeckah Browne, daughter of Peter Browne,

10 THE SNOW FAMILY. 

16 Joseph Sxow^ {.JosepJfi William}'), called Deacon Snow, 
was born Sept. 7, 1690, at Bridgewater, Mass. He married Eliza- 
beth, daughter of Capt. John^ and Elizabeth (Ames) Field of East 
Bridgewater. Elizabetli was born in Bridgewater, Aug. 4, 1698 ; 
died April 15, 1768, in lier 70th year. 

He went to Easton, Mass., before 1728, was a selectman in 
1729, and afterwards to Providence, R. 1. In March, 1732, Mr. 
Belcher, the minister in Easton, bought of Deacon Joseph Snow 
the land and buildings that became his homestead property. In 
1733 as it appears by tlie records of tlie First Congregational 
Church in Providence, Rev. Josiah Cotton baptized Mary, daugh- 
ter of Deacon Joseph and Elizabeth Snow. He was called Deacon 
in 1738 in a deed given by him. Judge Staples in liis annals of 
Providence savs : " During the time that Josiah Cotton had the 
pastoral charge of the P'irst Congregational Society, a part of his 
church aiul congregation seceded from his watch and care. The 
seceders deemed his preaching destitute of sound evangelical prin- 
ciples. They accused their pastor of preaching ' damnable good 
works.' The final separation took place on the 7th day of March 
1743. Among the seceders were Deacon Joseph Snow, Benjamin 
Gary, Thomas Knowlton, Alexander M'Crary, Solomon Searle, 
Peter Tefft, John Paine, Joseph Snow, Jr. (afterwards their min- 
ister), Ebenezer Knight, and Barzillai Richmond, together with 
fifteen females. These composed a large part, if not a majority, of 
Mr. Cotton's church at the time, and it is believed they claimed to 
be the first church, in opposition to Mr. Cotton and his adherents. 
They began religious meetuigs by themselves, and opened for the 
worship of (iod tlie first meetings that were statedly attended and 
maintained on the west side of the river. In the lang-uaee of the 
record of Mr. Cotton's church, " they set up a separate meeting, 
where they attended to tlie exhortations of a lay brother, who had 
been brought up in the business of house carpentry." " Every 
method for healing the uneasiness that had arose, proved fruitless 
and vain ; enthusiasm raged with a most furious impetuosity. 
These held separate meetings at a private house, where they were 
entertained on the Lord's day with loud and vociferous declamations 



THE SNOW FAMILY. 11 

on the downfall of Babylon, and on the necessity of coming out 
and being separate, not touching the unclean thing ; and such 
like exhortations were liberally held out." The separatists were 
suspended from Mr. Cotton's church on the 25th of March, 1744. 
— Staples' Annals of Providence, pp. JfJf^-JfoO-Jf.ol. 

In 1783 "the fair characters and exemplary lives" of such as 
had been formerly suspended from Mr. Cotton's church in 1744 
compelled that church to take off their censure, and to restore them 
to full fellowship. — Staples, p. Jf52. 

Joseph^ Snow was elected to the office of Ruling Elder of the 
Beneficent Congregational Church, Oct. 14, 1748, and held the 
office until his death. He died July 24, 1773, in his 83d year. 
His grave is marked by a large slate stone in lot in North Burial 
ground. 

Will of Joseph Snow^ was before the Town Council at a meeting 
HELD at Providence on the 7th day of August, 17T3.

41 Joseph Snow^ (^Joseph,^ Jos^ph,^ William^), was born 
in Bridgewater, Mass., Mar. 26, 1715, admitted to the Beneficent 
Congregational Church, Providence, R. I., May 7, 1738. He was 
pastor of this church for fifty j^ears, from 1743. M. 1st, Nov. 1, 
1737, Sarah Field, daughter of Zachariah and Abigail Field; she 
was born Aug. 9, 1710; admitted to the church Feb. 21, 1746; 
she died July 19, 1753; m. 2d, Mar. 14, 1754, Rebecca Grant, of 
Boston ; she was admitted to the church Sept. 1, 1754, and died 
Sept. 30, 1774; m. 3d, Oct. 24, 1775, Mrs. Margaret Proctor ; she 
was voted into the church Sept. 24, 1788. 

Joseph Snow in his youth was taught the trade of house carpen- 
try, and was a self-made, self-reliant man who possessed rare qual- 
ities that were brought into prominence when he assumed the 
pastorate of the church with which he had united five years before. 
Dr. Mark Tucker said of him : " His very appearance attracted 
attention and commanded respect. He was neat in his person ; 
methodical in his habits ; untiring in his labors." His interest and 
enthusiasm took a practical tui'u in the early days of his charge 
when the services having been for some time held at his own resi- 
dence, he became the chief agent in the erection of a meeting 
house. It is told that he " went into the forests with his brethren 
to cut the timber and actually wrought himself in the building of 
the house," which was completed in 1750. He gave his time and 
heart to his work " through a period of fifty years with scarcely as 
much pecuniary reward as some ministers in our large cities 
receive in a single year ; and there is no word in the records of 
his financial difficulties and no trace of discontent at the trials of 
his lot. His church increased until it numbered one hundred and 
forty families. During the Revolution " piety and patriotism 
walked hand and hand." The church records were kept in his 
own beautiful handwriting with the utmost accuracy — a marvel

of chirography which is still preserved in Providence.* This 
" wise and prudent shepherd " preached to the end of his long life 
" with unabated zeal, and his pastorate was full of pious and ele- 
vating influences to the whole community." (See " Sketches on 
Congregationalism," by Rev, James G. Vose, D. D.) He died 
April 10, 1803, in the 89th year of his age. The sermon at his 
funeral was preached by Dr. Stephen Gano, pastor of the First 
Baptist Church, Providence, from the text: " I have fought a 
good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." He 
says : " If uniform piety, unshaken faith in the divine government, 
a persevering attachment to the religion of Jesus Christ, an ardent 
love to the souls of men, an exemplary life of godliness and a 
sweet, serene composure in prospect of the approaching dissolu- 
tion of the body, give evidence of being approved of God, we may 
justly conclude our friend and father in the Gospel is now ming- 
ling his songs of praise among the spirits of the just made per- 
fect, enjoying the reward promised to the faithful laborer."!

so beautifully written when he was eighty-one years of age that it 
has been preserved and is exhibited with the family relics. Capt.

him, he followed the occupation of a carpenter. When gas was 
first introduced into Providence for hghting purposes, he was 
engaged in preparing many of the business blocks and residences 
in that city for its successful introduction. At the time when 
A. & W. Sprague erected their capacious mill at Baltic, Conn., 
he had charge of all the steam piping arrangements, and many 
months intervened before the' work was finally accomplished. 
It was considered an extensive contract in those days, and re- 
ceived favorable comment. He afterwards returned to his former 
occupation as a carpenter, and later engaged in the coal busi- 
ness, in which pursuit he continued until his retirement from 
business in 1895 on account of ill-health. Immediately after his 
marriage he went to keeping house at the southeast comer of 
Elm and Hospital Streets. In 1849 he built the house at No. 144 
Elm Street, which he moved into and where he continued to reside 
during the remainder of his life.
