INTRODUCTION. 



A desire to trace a lineage and to perpetuate its remembrance, seems to have been 
so prevalent among enlightened and semi-civilized people, and even among barbarians, 
of all ages, even the remotest to which either history or tradition extends, that it 
may be regarded as an instinct of human nature — an innate principle, implanted for 
wise and benevolent purposes. If so, ought it not to be cherished by the wise and 
the good ? 

It cannot be doubted that the practice, founded on a kindred principle, lately 
adopted by some of our collegiate institutions, of watching and noting the course of 
the lives of their sons, and placing the prominent points of their history on record, 
will be beneficent to those institutions, and exercise a salutary influence upon those 
whose names may be enrolled in their archives. It will produce a more lively mutual 
interest between the alma mater and her sons, and it may awaken in the latter a 
stronger desire that their names in the record be not followed by a blank or a blot. 
Genealogies, besides gratifying a natural and enlightened curiosity, may exercise 
a similar salutary influence, tending to maintain in their social position, families 
already elevated, and to elevate the lowly. 

When persons affect an utter indifference to their lineage, or a history of the past 
generations of their families, and deride any attention to them as a foolish weakness 
and vanity, they are contravening an innate principle, and it may be generally 
suspected that they have some knowledge of a lineage, which they would consign to 
oblivion, because it is untitled, and without a good renown. Some such persons 
build costly ostentatious monuments to procure present distinction, and a lasting 
memorial for themselves, while they never inquire for the burial-place of their an- 
cestors, and leave their graves to utter and most disrespectful neglect. Let the 
visitor, who has been admiring the costly, tasteful memorials in Mount Auburn 
Cemetery, extend his excursion half a mile farther, and he may find graves decayed, 
and ancient gravestones sunken or dilapidated, and overgrown with weeds and 
brambles, where were buried the Puritan ancestors of some of the builders of those 
admired monuments. It would be incongruous, and badly harmonize with the habits 
aifl principles of those early Puritan immigrants, to erect costly ornamental monu- 
ments over their remains; but it would be consistent with good taste, and a just 
regard for the first planters of Massachusetts Bay, for some Old Mortality to divest 
those graves of their unseemly covering, and remould them ; to reset or replace the 
sunken and dilapidated gravestones, and recut the simple inscriptions, which time 
has nearly obliterated. 

Some persons become so engrossed with sordid interests and the indulgence 
of the animal instincts, so insensible to the ties of consanguinity, and the happi- 
ness derived from the cultivation of the domestic affections, that in them this 
innate principle is not merely dormant, but so dead that it would require a miracle 
to revive it. They will not make the smallest sacrifice, nor forego a trifling indul- 
gence out of respect to the memory of an ancestor. They would exchange an old 



IV INTRODUCTION. 

family portrait for that of a danseuse, or of a popular partisan, and part with the old 
family Bible for the flashy outside of a soulless annual, or perhaps for a dollar, if it 
eould be invested at a good percentage. 

In most persons, however, this principle — the affinity of consanguinity — does not 
lack vitality; it only acts in a narrow sphere, or slumbers for want of incitements to 
awaken it, or the means and opportunities to manifest it. They will listen with 
eager attention and gratification to records and traditions relating to their ancestors, 
and their interest will increase with the enlargement of their information. To many 
such persons, it is hoped, that this work will be an acceptable offering and service, 
doing for them what it is not in their power so fully to accomplish. They are in- 
debted for it chiefly to that ill health which has enforced a diminished devotion to a 
laborious profession, which was pursued for many years with affection and assiduity. 
Its prosecution has afforded the author a very interesting occupation to many other- 
wise unoccupied hours. This statement will be appreciated only by those who have 
been engaged in similar pursuits. 

Some persons will prosecute a genealogy so far as there is some honor or distinc- 
tion accruing from it, so far as it will aid in a family glorification; but if any branch 
of it has declined into humble or obscure life, it is lopped off, unrecognized, and they 
would verify the Italian proverb, that " Poor folks have neither any kindred or 
friends." To such persons it may be distasteful that we have not acted on this 
principle, as neither families nor individuals have been omitted on account of their 
humble position. In this country, where the laws of primogeniture and of entail- 
ment are not recognized, and family training is so often defective and erroneous; 
where the vicissitudes of family rank and fortune are so great and so constantly oc- 
curring, it would not be strange if some descendants of those humble families should 
be found, at no very remote period, occupying high social positions, and that the 
wheel, whose revolution had brought them to the zenith, had carried the supercilious 
family to the nadir. Illustrations of this are abundant everywhere. So far as ability 
and opportunity have permitted, our researches have been prosecuted, and the results 
presented, with something of that minuteness and fidelity, which characterize the 
earnest students of natural science. 

Although the leading object has been the genealogies of the very early settlers, it 
will be found that the work is not confined to them exclusively, nor to the residents 
of Watertown; but that it includes such notices of later settlers and of transient resi- 
dents as are to be found in the records. The families of some of the later settlers 
became numerous, and they have filled a large space in our pages and in the interests 
of the town. There are also included brief or partial genealogies of some families in 
the neighboring towns, that have been intimately allied to Y/atertown families. 
This will enable very many persons to trace back their lineage much farther, and 
more satisfactorily, than they could have done without them. 

The names of numerous persons are embraced in the following genealogies, of 
whom it would be easy to collect the materials for copious biographies, and who well 
deserve them. Of many of them, indeed, they are already written, and we hme 
sometimes been strongly inclined to overstep our prescribed limits, and to use the 
materials at hand for a more full biographical delineation. But it is obvious that 
this would not comport with the plan and scope of the work. In the few instances, 
where we may seem to have transcended our limits, the cases were extraordinary, and 
are exceptions. 

There appeared to be an obvious propriety, not to say necessity, that the Family 
Memorials should be preceded by a history of the town. But it seemed presump- 
tuous for the author to undertake it, under all his disadvantages, after it had been 
written by a gentleman so able and accomplished as the Rev. Dr. Francis, and at the 
time he resided there. His History of Watertown did not, however, seem to be 
sufficiently full and precise upon some points to answer our purpose, and we have 
been very solicitous that he should supply those deficiencies, and allow it to be in- 



INTRODUCTION. V 

serted as an introduction to the genealogies. Not being successful in this, nor in 
prevailing upon another friend to undertake it, who is very competent to accomplish 
it in the best manner, we have reluctantly been compelled to compose an historical 
memoir, which will be found in the Appendix. It is devoted almost exclusively to 
the early times, and it claims to be little more than an introduction to a history of 
the town. All that can be hoped for it is, that its simple statements of dry details 
may furnish some entertainment to the few persons who are interested in such 
archaeological researches. We cannot advise others to turn their attention to it with 
the expectation that they will be entertained and instructed; and with them we may 
incur the imputation of being tediously minute upon very trifling and unimportant 
matters. 

No one can be more sensible than the author is of the deficiencies of the work — 
of the great improvement of which it is susceptible, by a full revision and re-arrange- 
ineut. It has grown from a very small beginning to its present magnitude by innu- 
merable increments, sometimes so added, and of such extent, as to give certain parts 
a misshapen overgrowth, they having been inserted after the general arrangement of 
the particular genealogy was made, and could not be conveniently altered. 

The first part of the work was put to press three years ago, when the writer had 
not the prospect of being able to prosecute it any farther, when he was not able to 
digest and arrange all the materials in his possession, and when the field of research 
was, as it still is, very far from being exhausted. Yet it then seemed advisable to 
the writer, and to the friends whom he consulted, to print it, such as it then was, 
leaving additions and corrections to be made by others, rather than to leave such a 
mass of materials to be lost, or left to the care of those who might not appreciate or 
understand them. Some of the genealogies had an especial need of re-arrangement, 
particularly those of the Stearns families, which are the most copious of any in the 
work. But they had become so interwoven with others by such very numerous 
references, that the labor of it seemed then to be altogether beyond the writer's 
ability. 

In a work entering into such copious and minute details, containing such an exten- 
sive and complicated network of references, and made up of materials derived from 
such a variety of sources, not always reliable for accuracy, it cannot be expected that 
every point has been ascertained to a demonstration. It is likely that further re- 
search will discover many errors and deficiencies; and the author will be thankful to 
those who will transmit to him such as may be discovered. Should this invitation 
meet with a ready response, the result may hereafter be laid before the public in a 
supplement, or some other form. 

It would be most agreeable and congenial to the author's feelings to make full and 
special acknowledgments for all the aid he has received. It has come from sources 
almost innumerable, — so numerous that it would be nearly impossible to enter into 
full details. The reader will find many such acknowledgments in the course of the 
work. But there are other instances where very valuable aid and co-operation have 
been rendered by persons whom we would gladly designate, but whose modesty 
shrinks from the little publicity it would be in our power to give them. From some 
of those authors, mentioned in Appendix II., we have received valuable aid iu addi- 
tion to what has been derived from their published works, particularly A. H. Ward 
and Francis Jackson, Esq'rs. For information respecting the numerous Lunenburg 
families, whose lineage is traced to Watertown, we are indebted to John R. Rollins, 
Esq., for the loan of his digested transcript of the town records. For most of the 
materials for the genealogy of the Bellows family (p. 532), we are indebted to the 
fair hand of one, who wishes her name to remain sub umbra. This case is not 
singular, for we could refer to many like it. 

It is stated, p. 916, that there is, in the family of the late Hon. Leverett Salton- 
stall, of Salem, a very valuable portrait of Sir Richard Saltonstall, the chief founder 
of Watertown. Through the kindness of Leverett Saltonstall, Esq., of Boston, we 



vi INTRODUCTION. 

have the happiness to illustrate this work with the portrait of that truly good and 
great man. We appreciate this privilege the more highly, as it is not known that 
his likeness was ever before published. The English pedigree of Sir Richard may 
be seen in Clutterbuck's History of Hertfordshire, fob, Vol. III. pp. 862-3. But 
we have received it, revised and extended by Mr. L. Saltonstall, of Boston, and 
Mr. George D. Phippen, of Salem. To the same gentlemen we are indebted for a 
large part of the materials for the genealogy of Sir Richard's descendants. Much of 
our information has, however, been derived from other sources, among which may 
be mentioned the Historical Sketch of Haverhill, with Biographical Notices, by Hon. 
Leverett Saltonstall. The materials for the brief biographical notices of Sir Richard 
and his children, have, however, been gleaned by the author from various other 
sources. Most of the information respecting Gov. Gurdon Saltonstall and his de- 
scendants was received from a very accomplished and obliging correspondent, who 
desires us to make no public acknowledgment. The aid received from Mr. L. 
Saltonstall is the more highly appreciated as he has commenced an extensive and 
thorough search for materials for a history of the Saltonstall family. For the 
copious materials for a genealogy of the descendants of Mr. Samuel Phillips [38], of 
Salem, we are chiefly indebted to a gentleman greatly respected for his talents and 
learning, and beloved for his private virtues. 

.EST' A list of the works and authors referred to, or consulted, in the prosecu- 
tion of this work, is inserted in Appendix II., with an explanation of some abbre- 
viated titles. 



EXPLANATIONS. 

The arrangement of each genealogy, at first adopted many years ago, corresponded 
very nearly with that of the Minot family, published in the first volume of the 
Genealogical Register. But the accumulation of materials was becoming so great, 
that it was necessary to compress them as much as perspicuity and fulness of details 
would admit. It was also necessary, in a work including so many genealogies, and 
where the references are so numerous and constantly occurring, to adopt the most 
convenient plan of referring from one genealogy or family to another. It seemed 
desirable also, as far as it could be done conveniently, to arrange two or more 
generations of a family synoptically, so that their relationship might be more 
readily seen than they can be when all the branches are arranged into distinct 
families, and widely distributed in different and remote pages. This part of the plan 
seems to possess the advantages of condensation and perspicuity. 

The genealogies are arranged alphabetically, as may be seen in the running titles 
at the top of each page. Where the materials of a genealogy are sufficiently copious 
to be arranged in a tabular form, ordinal numbers are placed in the left margin of 
the page, next to the perpendicular line, beginning with 1, opposite to the first name 
in the genealogy, and continuing the numbers to the end of it. In several instances 
a cross (f) will be found affixed to an ordinal number. This indicates a duplicate 
number, and that it has been introduced interstitially, subsequently to the arrange- 
ment of the table. 

Where another number occurs in the margin, opposite to the ordinal number, it 
refers the reader to that ordinal number in the same genealogy, where other infor- 
mation may be found. If it be less than the opposite ordinal number, it will refer 
back to the individual's parentage ; if it be larjjer, it will refer forward to his or her 
marriage and distinct family. 

In many instances, it will be seen that several names come under, or belong to, 



INTRODUCTION. Vll 

one ordinal number, as those of a father and his children, and sometimes his grand- 
children. When one of these children or grandchildren is referred to in another 
part of the work, two or three numbers will be included in the brackets, thus 
n 46-4— 2]. The first is the ordinal number in the place referred to; the 2d number 
[4.], denotes the fourth child of [146] ; and the 3d number [2.], indicates the second 
child of [4.]. 

In some instances, as in the Stearns families, where very numerous names come 
under one ordinal number, italic letters have been inserted between it and the next 
ordinal number for the convenience of reference. Where this is the case, and one of 
the names is referred to in another part of the work, a number, a letter, and a num- 
ber, are included in brackets, thus, [58-</-3]. Here [58.] is the ordinal number; [d.~] 
indicates one of the children or grandchildren of [58.]; and [3.] indicates the third 
child of [d.]. 

In the genealogy of Isaac Stearns, the first four generations are arranged distinctly 
from the fifth and from each other; and in each of them the ordinal numbers begin 
and terminate with that generation. When, therefore, there is a reference to any 
name in this genealogy, Roman letters are included in the brackets, thus [I. Stearns 
36, IV.], showing that the ordinal number [36.] is to be sought in the fourth 
generation. 

By a re-arrangement of some of the genealogies, as before referred to, all this in- 
convenient and unnecessary complexity might be, and ought to be avoided. The 
genealogies thus defective are among those first compiled, and to them only are most 
of these explanations applicable and necessary. 

The heads (parents) of a distinct family are printed in ROMAN CAPITALS, and 
the prefixed Roman capitals in a parenthesis denote his or her generation ; whether it 
be the 2d, 3d, or more remote generation from the first in that genealogy. Below a 
line, immediately succeeding, are the names of their children in small capitals. 
Where a family, or any part of it, is arranged synojjtically, as before mentioned, the 
grandchildren are printed in italics, and removed a small space [2 ems] to the right. 
Great-grandchildren are removed still farther [4 ems] to the right, and are printed 
in small Roman letters. 

When a number in brackets [ ] immediately follows a name, find that name in 
the top of the page (among the running titles), and the number among the ordinal 
numbers belonging to that name. 

This mark (?) (interrogation point in a parenthesis), denotes that what imme- 
diately follows it is not clearly ascertained, — that it is questionable or conjectural, 
and requires further research in order to its determination. 

In England and her colonies, the Julian Calendar was retained until 1752, when 
the Gregorian Calendar, or New Style, was adopted by an Act of Parliament. As 
an account of these Calendars, and the reason for the change of the one for the other, 
may be found in various works, we omit an explanation of them. That which seems 
to be the most condensed and lucid, and probably accessible to most inquirers, is the 
article Calendar in Brande's Dictionary of Science, Literature, and Art. We have 
inserted dates as they are found in the ancient records, without altering them so as 
to correspond with the New Style. The Roman names of the months have (except 
in a very few instances) been adopted, instead of the numerals, which were generally 
used by the Puritans. 

In order to make the dates previous to 1752 correspond, in the solar year, within 
the New Style, it is necessary to add 11 to dates of days between 1600 and 1700, 
and 12 to the dates between 1700 and 1752. Thus, the Arbella arrived at Salem, 
June 12th, 1630, O. S., which (adding 11) would be June 23, N. S. Water- 
town Church was organized, July 28, 1030, O. S., which would be August 8th, 
N. S. Weston was incorporated Jan. 1, 1712, 0. S., which (adding 12) would be 
Jan. 13, N. S. 

According to the Julian Calendar, or Old Style, the year began March 25th, and 



Vlii INTRODUCTION. 

the same clays, between Jan. 1 and March 25th, belonged to different years in the 
Old and New Styles. This occasioned double dating, which will be found in the 
following pages, thus: Jan. 8, 1675-6, or 167f, indicates the year 1675, 0. S., or 
1676, N. S. By recurring to § 57, p. 1000, it will be seen that, in the records of 
Watertown, previous to 1618, the year was considered as beginning on the 1st of 
March, but not after that date. 

We have aimed at exactness in dates ; but, to our regret, some mistakes are dis- 
covered, which are attributable to typographical errors, to oversight in repeated 
transcriptions, or to the difficulty in some instances of deciphering a bad chirography.

FAMILY MEMORIALS. 



ABBOT.— (Abbet, Abbitt.) 
ROBERT ABBOT, of Wat., adm. freeman Sept. 3, 1634, was one of that small 
colony from Wat., which first settled what they first called Watertown, afterwards 
named Wethersfield, Conn. His name is on the list of proprietors of Wat., in 
1642, although he had gone to Connecticut several years before. [See Register 
of Abbot families, p. 173.] 

Nehemiah Abbott, " of Andover," on May 11, 1714, bought, of Thomas Woolson, 
a house and land in Weston, on the n. side of Sud. Road, commonly called the 
Stony Brook Mill Lot; also two other lots. He m., 1714, Sarah Foster, and had 
1. Nehemiah, bap. in Weston, Dec. 4, 1715; 2. Nehemiah, bap. Mar. 13, 1716-17; 
3. Sarah, bap. in Weston, Nov. 2, 1718. About this date he moved to Lex. [See 
said Register of Abbot, p. 156.] 

John Abbot, '-'a mill-wright of Wat.," and wife Jemima, on Jan. 21, 1715, sold 
land to S. Stowell. Their dr. Jemima, b. Oct. 10, 1699, m., in Wat, Dec, 12, 1717,

ADAMS, (sometimes spelled Addams.) 
(I.) GEORGE ADAMS, a glover, and wife FRANCES, settled in Watertown as early 
as 1645. Nov. 4, 1664, he and wife Frances sold to John Chinery "my dwelling- 
house in Watertown and land adjoining." He moved to Camb. Farms, (Lex.,) pro- 
bably about the time of the above sale. The birth of only two of his children are 
recorded, but probably he had at least five. 1. John, b. Aug. 6, 1645; 2. George, 
b. 1647. birth not recorded; 3. Daniel, exec'r of his father's will ; 4. Joseph, b. 
Mar. 6,' 1657 ; 5. Mary, bap. and o. c. in Wat., Nov. 21, 1686. " George Adams, 
sen., of Camb.," (Lex.,) d. Oct. 10, 1696. Inventory, £61, 13, 8. Son Daniel sole 
exec'r. [See Barry, p. 166, Note.] 

John Adams, of Wat., 1662, then aged 37, was probably the John Adams adm. 
freeman, Ap., 1668. Was he the John Adams of Medfield, who sold land in Wat. 
to Robert Harrington, Sept. 9, 1692?

BENJAMIN. 

JOHN BENJAMIN arrived in the ship Lion, Sept. 16, 1632 ; was adm. freeman Nov. 
6, 1632; was a proprietor of Camb., and perhaps he first settled there. If so, it was 
only for a short time, as his house, with goods to the amount of £100, was burnt in 
Wat. Ap.7, 1636. [Winthrop. I. 185.] Gov. Winthrop designates him as "Mr. Ben- 
jamin," and in 1642 he had the largest homestall in Wat. He d. June 14, 1645, and 
inventory (£297, 3, 2), was made by Simon Stone, John Eddie, and Thomas Mar- 
ret. His will, dated June 12, 1645, two days before his death, mentions beloved 
wife, not named, eldest son John, and 7 other chil. not named, some of whom 
were ' : small." [See Gen. Reg., III. 176.] He appointed : 'my brother John 
Eddie, of Wat.," and Thomas Marret, of Camb., executors. His wid., ABIGAIL, 
went with her son-in-law, Joshua Stubbs, to Charlestown about 1654, where she d. 
May 20, 1687, aged 87. Probably she did not live continuously in Charlestown. 
Mar. 28, 1670, Abigail Benjamin, spinster of Wat., for £12, sold to John Welling- 
ton, of Wat., three parcels of land in Camb. [As a Richard Benjamin came over 
with John in 1632, and was proprietor of Wat. in 1642, he may have been a 
brother, instead of a son, of John, Senr. His age at his embarkation is not given. J 

2 | 1. Mary. She d. Ap. 10, 1646. Her will, proved June 4, 1646 [See Geneal. Reg. 



BENJAMIN.

III. 178], mentions Pastor Knolls, her aunt Wines, sister Abigail Stubbs, cousin 
Anne Wyes, and brothers, not named. [This Will renders it very probable that 
her father left only two daughters ; that the wife of Barnabas Wines was a sister 
of John Benjamin, sen., or of his wife, and that Anne Wyes, in the will, should 
be Wines.] 

Abigail, m., about 1640 or '41, Joshua Stubbs, of Wat., adm. freeman May 2, 
1649, by whom she had at least three chil., viz. : 

1. Samuel, b. Aug. 3, 1642. 

2. Mary, m., Mar. 24, 1674-5, John Traine. [Traine, 10.] 

3. Elizabeth, m., about 1674, Jonathan Stimson. [Stimson, 1.] Nov. 8, 1654, 
Joshua Stubbs, then of Charlestown, and wife Abigail, with the consent of 
mother Abigail Benjamin, sold to Joseph Underwood, for £30, their home- 
stall (a house and 12 acres), and several other parcels of land in Wat. He 
d. soon after this date, and his wid. m. John Woodward. [Woodward, 14.] 

John, d. in Wat., Dec. 22, 1706, aged 86. 

Richard, proprietor of Wat., 1642, by wife Anna, had 1. Anna, b. in Wat., Sept. 
1643. He settled on Long Island, and was adm. freeman of Connecticut, 1664. 
It is questionable whether this was a son of the first John. 
Joshua, of Charlestown, d. 1684, s. p. leaving wid. Thankful. 
Samuel, b. 1628, took oath of fidelity 1652; by wife Mary, had dr. Mary, b. in 
Wat., May 12, 1666. Oct. 28, 1667, he and wife Mary sold to Daniel Medup 
three lots of land. 1st. 120 acres adjoining lands of his mother; 2d. 6 acres in 
Little Nonesuch Meadow; 3d. Farm lands elsewhere surrounding. In the same 
month, Oct. 19, 1667, he sold to his mother, Abigail, for £35, 10 acres with the 
mansion house, &c. He moved to Hoccanum, in Hartford, Conn., and d. 1669, 
leaving wife Mary exec'r, brother Caleb overseer, and sons Samuel and John, 
and drs. Mary and Abigail. [See Hinman, p. 114-15.] 

Caleb, settled in Wethersfield, Conn., adm. freeman of Conn., 1669; d. May 8, 
1684, leaving wife Mary, and chil. 1. Mary, aged 13. 2. Abigail, aged 11. 
3. Sarah, aged 8. 4. John, aged 6. 5. Samuel, aged 5. 6. Martha, aged 3. 
Caleb Benjamin, who d. in Wethersfield, 1709, leaving son John (Ex'r) and 4 
drs., was probably an elder son. [Hinman, p. 114 and 198.] 
Abel, of Charlestown, m., Nov. 6, 1671, Amithy Myrick. His will, dated July 
3, 1710, mentions wife Amithy, son John, and gr. son John, dr. Mary, dr. Abi- 
gail, b. Aug. 26, 1680, and brother Joshua.

BISCOE (BRISCOE). 
NATHANIEL, the progenitor of this Watertown family, wrote his name Briscoe, 
which is, undoubtedly, the true orthography; but it became an early usage in the 
records to write it Biscoe and Bisco, which usage has continued to this time. 
The name, Briscoe, occurs frequently in the Boston town record between 1642 
and 1686, but it has not been ascertained what affinity there was, if any, between 
those of Boston and those of Watertown. Arms of Brisco, of Co. of Cumberland, 
and of Sussex. Ar. three greyhounds courant in pale sa. Crest. A greyhound cour- 
ant sa. seising a hare ppr. Motto — Grata same manu. 

(I.) NATHANIEL BISCOE, "the rich tanner," was in Watertown as early as 
1642, and probably 3 or 4 years earlier. In that year he wrote and circulated pri- 
vately a pamphlet " against -the way of supporting ministers," that gave great 
offence, and for which he was fined ten pounds. In that year, his barn, with 
leather and corn, amounting to £100, was destroyed by fire. He was so dissatis- 
fied with the prevalent ecclesiastical intolerance that he returned to England about 
the end of 1651, or early the next year. Oct. 2, 1651, he sold to John Wincol the 
46 acres of land, which he purchased of the town ; deed witnessed by Thomas 
Broughton, Nathaniel Biscoe, Jr., and Mary Broughton. He wrote a letter, dated 
London, Sept. 7, 1652, printed in Vol. I., 3d series of Mass. Hist. Coll., which fell 
into the hands of Government, and produced some excitement at the time. His 
wife, ELIZABETH, was buried in Wat., Nov. 20, 1642. In that letter he mentions 
his uncle Richard Briscoe, who died a little before the date of the letter. He had 
four children, whom he left in Massachusetts. [See Winthrop's Journal, II., 92 
and 3 ; also Francis's History of Wat. ; also the letter above-mentioned.] 

1. Nathaniel, mentioned in his father's letter, 1652, and by Gov. Winthrop as " a 
gentleman born," was. in 1639, Usher of Nathaniel Eaton, "the first person 
who had charge of the Institution," (Harv. Coll.). Concerning the barbarous and 
tyrannical conduct of Eaton, and his fate, see Winthrop's Journal, I., 308, and 
Peirce's History of the College. He (N. B.) was living Sept., 1652. 

2. Mary, m. Thomas Broughton,* a merchant, who settled first in Wat., and about 
1650 moved to Boston, where he d. Nov. 12, 1700. a^ed 87. Mar. 6, 1656-7, he 
(then a merchant of Boston), bought of Rev. Henry Dunster, the mills (corn and 
fulling) on Mistick River, on Menotomy land, which mills said T. B. had built. 
He also bought of Parnell and Samuel No well, of Charlestown, for £85, that 
farm of upland and meadow, containing 300 A., which the town had granted 
to their father, Mr. Increase Nowell, bounded S. W. by Camb. line, N. W. by 
line between Woburn and Charlestown, N. E. Mr. Zechariah Sims, N. W. line 
between Mr. Winthrop, Major Gibbons, and Mr. John Wilson. Chil.,

BOND. 

On referring to Doomsday-book, it will be found that numerous estates were held in Eng- 
land by families of the name of BOND in the time of Edward the Confessor, and through 
later years down to the formation of the survey by William the Conqueror. They held 
estates in the Counties of Cornwall. Dorset, Essex, Kent, Hants, Berks, Bedford, Suffolk, 
Gloucester, Northampton, and York, and in several Counties held two or more estates. 
Whether these were held by a few wealthy families, or by as many families as there were 
estates, has not been clearly ascertained; but it is probable that the families were nume- 
rous. The most distinguished families of the name in England, for the last three or four 
centuries, trace their lineage to Earth and Holewood in the County of Cornwall ; and 
some of the old writers of Heraldry speak of stirps antiquissima Bondorum of that County. 

There is a tradition — the very common tradition — that three brothers of the name of 
Bond first came to this country a little previous to 1650. One of them, THOMAS, said to 
have been a physician, settled in Virginia or Maryland. Of him the writer knows nothing. 
Perhaps he was the ancestor of that distinguished physician and surgeon, Dr. Thomas 
Bond, of Philadelphia, the leader among the founders of Pennsylvania Hospital, who was 
born in Maryland, in 1712. Another of the three, JOHN, settled in Newbury, Mass., and 
was a proprietor, 1642. He has descendants in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, 
Ohio, and Michigan. The other, WILLIAM, said to have been educated a merchant, 
settled in Watertown, Mass.; and from him are descended most of the families of the name 
of Bond in New England. 

The results of the recent researches of Mr. H. G. Somerley, in England, tend to dis- 
credit this tradition. He has satisfactorily ascertained that the first William Bond of 
Watertown, was a son of Thomas and Elizabeth Bond, of Bury St. Edmunds. Suffolk Co., 
England, and that he was baptized there, in the church of St. James, Sept. 8, 1625. This 
William had brothers, Thomas and John, older than himself; but the Will of their father, 
Thomas, renders it very probable, that all his sons, except William, settled in England. 
This Thomas Bond (father of William), was the youngest son of Jonas and Rose Bond, 
of Bury St. Edmunds. It is probable that this Jonas Bond moved into Bury St. Edmunds 
after the birth of his second child, as his eldest two children were not baptized there, and 
he may have moved from Hawley or Woolpit, where, according to his Will, he owned 
houses. He was buried Aug. 5, 1601. It is probable that the maiden name of his wife 
was Wood. [See Bond, Appendix I.]

appears by the Will of Rev. John Sherman, of Wat., that he had two daughters .Mary living at the same time.

Besides the families and descendants of William, of Wat., and of John, of Newbury, 
there were families of the name of Bond in Boston from the middle to the end of the 17th 
century, who are not known to have left any descendants. There was a Robert Bond, 
who was an early settler (1648), of East Hampton, L. I., probably afterwards of Connec- 
ticut. Perhaps he was a descendant of Robert Bond, of Bury St. Edmunds, who had a son 
Robert, bap. Jan. 30, 1572. 

There are numerous families of Bonds scattered through almost every State in the Union. 
Some of them trace their lineage directly to emigrants from England, while the lineage 
of others is soon lost in a vague tradition. Of the latter class are several families in the 
City and County of Philadelphia, and in the adjoining County of Chester, who say that 
their ancestors first settled on Long Island and in the County of West Chester, N. Y. Other 
families are comparatively new-comers from England and Ireland. 

For some account of the Bonds, in England, see Burke's Genealogical Heraldic History 
of the Commoners of England, Vol. I. 

It has not been satisfactorily ascertained what coat of arms, if any, the Bonds of Bury 
St. Edmunds, or of Suffolk, were entitled to bear. The most ancient one belonging to the 
name Bond, and not appropriated to any one family or locality, is very simple, viz. : sable, 
a fesse or. The arms of the very ancient family of Earth and Holewood, Cornwall, which 
have been borne by several scattered branches, and which it has been supposed that the 
Bonds of Bury St. Edmunds were entitled to bear, are the following: — Arg. on a chev. sa. 
three Bezants. Crest, a demi pegasus az. winged and semee of etoiles or. Motto, Non 
sufficit orbis. I leave this point to be determined by those who deem it of such import- 
ance as to deserve an elaborate investigation.

BOND. 



47 



His first marriage is the earliest mention of him in the town records. There is, how- 
ever, a deposition on the files of the county court, which renders it very probable, that he 
came to America at a very early age, in 1630, with Deacon Ephraim Child, and which 
greatly strengthens the presumption that Elizabeth, wife of Dea. Child, was a sister of his 
father. She had lived several years with her second husband without having children : 
and the presumption is, that when she was about to embark for America, her brother, 
Thomas Bond, who was filling his own house with sons, gave his third son, William, to 
his sister to supply a void, of which she would be the more sensible in her new abode. 
[See Dea. E. Child.] The following is the deposition : " William Bond, aged about 55 
years, Testifieth yt I ye deponent lived at the lower end of Watertowne next Cambridge 
fiftee years agoe [not fifteen, as is evident from the context]; and was well acquainted 
with the land yt belongs to widdow Thatcher, which was formerly Deacon Ephraim 
Childs, and alsoe with ye lott yt was old goodman Warrens; which joyned to said Decon 
Childs, between which two lots ye way now in controversie is contended for; and I ye 
deponent cannot remember yt ever thare any allowed way thare, but ye two lotts afore 

spoken of weare Improved closs to one another and no footway, I ever of; or 

any other way yt was ever granted by ye town. Sworn 20, 10, 1681." 

He purchased a farm, originally settled by Capt William Jennison, who sold it to Rev. 
John Knowles. After the return of Mr. Knowles to England, and while he resided at 
Bristol, he executed a deed, dated Mar. 15, 1654-5, conveying his estate in Wat., for the 
sum of £200, to William Bond, in the possession of whose descendants it remained more 
than 170 years. It is now owned by John P. Cushing, Esq., of Wat., whose taste and 
princely liberality have made it one of the most elegant residences in New England. 

He received, at different times, numerous offices and appointments of trust. He was 
often employed in taking Inventories, writing Wills and Deeds, and settling estates. He 
was Selectman, Town Clerk, a Captain,* a Justice of the Peace, a member of the Coun- 
cil of Safety in 1689; often represented Watertown, and was elected Speaker of the 
General Court in 1691. '92, '93, and '95, being the first speaker elected under the new 
Royal Charter, which united the colonies of Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay into one 
colony. He was admitted freeman. Oct. 11, 1682, and to the church, f. c. Mar. 27, 1687. 
Oct. 7, 1679, he was appointed by the County Court, according to a law then in force, on 
a committee, consisting of Capt. Thomas Prentice, Mr. William Bond, and Dea. John 
Stone, to rebuild Lancaster, which had been destroyed by Indians. [See Willard's History 
of Lancaster, Worcester Mag. II., 294.] June 10, 1686, he was appointed by the Presi- 
dent and Council of Mass., on a committee, with general powers to order and regulate all 
matters concerning the settlement of Worcester. [Lincoln's History of Worcester, p. 33.]

appointed on the same commission, with Capt. Thomas Prentice, of Newton, on distant duty, perhaps he was 
Lieut, under that distinguished commander of horse. In 1692, those parts of Watertown, which subsequently 
became the towns of Watertown, Waltham, and Weston, were designated as the precincts of Capt. Bond's Com- 
pany, of Captain Garfield's Company, and Lieut. Jones's Company.

He held a Justice's commission more than 24 years, and was sometimes called 
'•'the marrying Squire," on account of the great frequency of his officiating at 
weddings during the long time he held office. He represented the town many 
times in the General Court, and was often intrusted with its most important 
municipal business. He belonged to the military force sent into Canada in 1690, 
under Sir Wm. Phipps. On the 19th June, 1721, Jonas Bond, Esq., of Watertown. 
Francis Fulham, Esq., of Weston, and Francis Bowman, Esq., of Lexington, were 
commissioned by the Governor and Council "to be Commissioners of Sewers," 
and the immediate object of their appointment was "the cleansing and removing 
all such banks and other obstructions in the aforesaid river (Sudbury and Concord) 
which do occasion the overflowing thereof, and of drowning the meadows and 
other lowlands adjoining or lying on said river; and to employ workmen and 
labourers to effect the same." The extent of the work was "'from the mill-pond 
of Christopher Osgood, in Billerica bounds, to the cart bridge in Sudbury." On 
his gravestone in Watertown is the following epitaph : 

" Here lies buried the body of 
Jonas Bond. Esq., 
who was called of God to serve the public, both as a Lieut. Colonel of a regiment 
of militia, and as a Justice of the Peace, and was careful to discharge his trusts 
with zeal, fidelity, and courage ; who was a man of unaffected piety, which was 
attended with all those virtues that are requisite to accomplish a Christian ; who 
was a kind husband, a tender father, a steady friend, and a hearty lover of good 
men; and, having served his generation, by the will of God fell asleep Ap. 21. 
1727, tetatis sua? 63." 

By the side of this gravestone is another, with the following inscription : 

" Memento mori fugit hora.

following brief obituary appeared in a Springfield paper the day after his 
decease : 

" It is with profound regret that we record the death of one of our oldest 
and most respectable citizens, Mr. Thomas Bond. He died on Tuesday, 
after a brief illness, at the age of 74. Twenty-seven years ago he removed 
from West Brookfield to this town, and from that day to this, he has main- 
tained a character, spotless in its honour, and radiant in its discriminating 
and unostentatious benevolence. Though it is in the course of nature that 
a life, leaning so far from the shore of time over the ocean of eternity, 
should drop its ripened apple of gold into the abyss, we still weep to see it 
disappear, and miss it with sorrow from the trembling bough which it 
adorned, and where it hung.'"'

He was a Lieut. Colonel under Col. Thomas Gardner, who was mortally 
wounded in the battle of Bunker Hill, and d. July 1st. After that event, he (W. 
B.), had the command of that Regiment, which, in Nov. 1775, was arranged as 
the 25th Regiment of the Continental Army, and belonged to Gen. Green's Bri- 
gade, which was stationed on Prospect Hill. Early in the following March, the 5th 
and 25th Reg'ts (Col. Stark's, and Col. Bond's), received marching orders for New 
York, where they arrived on the 30th of the month. On the 20th April, 4 Regi- 
ment's (the 8th, Col. Poor's; the 15th, Col. Patterson's; the 24th, Col. Greaton's ; 
the 25th, Col. Bond's) were ordered to Canada, being the first detachment ordered 
thither, by the way of the Lakes, on that expedition which proved so disastrous 
to the Americans, partly on account of the extreme sickliness of the season, and 
partly on account of the incompetency of some of the numerous generals, who 
were successively in command. He returned from Canada, with his force greatly 
weakened by disease and death, and encamped on Mount Independence, opposite 
to Ticonderoga. For the important services rendered by the 25th Reg't, in the 
xetreat of the army from Canada, see Gordon's Hist, of the Am. Revolution, 
vol. ii., pp. 260, '61, and '62. 

The following is extracted from a letter, dated " Camp Mount Independence, 
opposite Ticonderoga, Sept. 4, 1776," and published in the Boston Gazette, of 
Sept. 23, 1776. "On the 31st nit, departed this life, Col. William Bond. He 
met the last enemy with the greatest calmness and intrepidity. In his death our 
country has lost a true patriot, and a most vigilant officer of tried bravery. The 
first of this instant his remains were escorted with military parade to the place of 
burial in the front of the Regiment, where the Rev. Ebenezer David delivered a 
funeral oration and a prayer. After which the corpse was interred, and the 
Colonel's character honoured by a discharge of three 24 pounders, and the usual 
volleys of musketry. The whole was conducted in a manner suitable to the occa- 
sion."

BRIGHT. 



BRIGHT.* 

There were two early settlers of Watertown of the name of HENRY BRIGHT, who, from 
their respective ages, had been supposed to be father and son. A careful examination of 
the town and county records had rendered this supposition extremely improbable, and the 
late extensive researches in England by H. G. Somerby, Esq., have clearly disproved it. 

HENRY BRIGHT, Sen., in the town record sometimes called "old Bright,*' d. in Wat.. 
Sept. 14, 1674, "above a hundred years old," according to the town records, and 109 years 
old, according to the county records. Owing to his great age and indigence, he was taken 
care of by the town for some time previous to his decease. His Inventory amounted to 
only £2 9s. It included " 1 pair of shop shears," rendering it probable that he had been 
a tailor. It included no land, although he had formerly been a proprietor. It is probable 
that he came over between the year 1637, when his name is not on the list of proprietors, 
and 1642, when he owned a homestall of 8 acres. 

HENRY BRIGHT, Jr., came to America as early as 1630, and probably at the same 
time with Gov. Winthrop, as they were from the same County (Suffolk), and their families 
were remotely related by marriage. His name is the 48th on the list of members of the 
first church of Boston, that was originally organized in Charlestown, which shows that he 
must have been a member of it in 1630. 

To the liberality of my friend, Mr. J. B. Bright, of Waltham, and to the scrutinizing and 
persevering researches of Mr. Somerby, in England, we, the numerous descendants of Dea. 
Henry Bright, are indebted for the following information respecting his pedigree, and for 
the accompanying illustrations. 




ST. MARY'S CHURCH, BURT ST. EDMUND'S. 

The rebuilding of St. Mary's Church (originally erected A.D. 1005), was begun in 
1424, and finished about 1433. This fine structure is 139 ft. long (exclusive of the chan- 
cel, which is 74 by 68 ft.), and 67£ ft. in breadth. The roof of the nave, which was framed 
at Caen, in Normandy, is admired for its lightness and elegance. [See Guide, &c, of 
Bury St. Edmund's.] The first Walter Bright [see pedigree], belonged to this church, as 
did also John Bright, his presumed father, and his two sons, John and Edmund. It was 
in this churchyard that Thomas Bond (father of the first William Bond, of Wat.), requested 
to be buried. 

Thomas Bright, Sen. [see pedigree], whose likeness is here presented, was an Alder- 
man, and a liberal benefactor of Bury St. Edmund's. In the Guild Hall is an original por- 
trait of him, which was procured by the Corporation, and from which the annexed en- 
graving was taken. Beneath the picture, on the same panel, is the following inscription : 



* Mr. Somerby says, ' ; My friend, Thomas Wright, Esq., F. S. A., the best Saxon scholar in England, gives me 
the origin of this name thus: 'The name Bright, is an excellent Anglo-Saxon name. In the Saxon it was spell 
Beorht. It is the simple word bright; but it was used then with much more extensive meaning, as signifying 
distinguished, excellent, surpassing in courage, or anything else; — as you would say now, a shining fellow. 
We say a bright fellow, more with reference to his intelligence; hence the name means an excellent or dis- 
tinguished man. Beorht was a common name among the Anglo-Saxons, and is often found in the records.'"

" Thomas Bright, sometyme draper* of this Town, a worthy benefactor, who gave for 
the benefit of this towne the Inheritance of a portion of Thythes worth x lbs. per annum, 
and an equal part of his goods, as much as he gave any of his children, which amounted 
to ccc lb. 1587." 

Abstract of his Will, proved 1587. Wife MARGARET to have the manor of Botters. 
in Tomson, Co. Norfolk, with the tenement called Brightmeares, and others; also, the 
manor of Brookhall, in Foxearth, Co. Essex. After her death, son Thomas to have the 
Norfolk estate, and his son Walter to succeed. To his son Robert his property in Great 
Barton, called Barton Place. To son Henry, his lands in Barton, and in other towns and 
parishes, which he purchased of Sir Robert Jermyn, Knight, and George Cocke. To said 
Henry, his house where he now dwells, and the house where Thomas dwells, and the 
tavern and other buildings in Skinner's Row and Smith's Row. To son Jasper his tene- 
ment, &.c, in Newton. To son Thomas his close, &c, in Westgate Street, which his 
father, Walter, gave him by his Will. To daughter Margaret, wife of Mr. Roodes. To 
daughter Anne, wife of Thomas Reade; daughters Katherine and Susan; brother Edmund 
and his son Thomas; brother John ; father-in-law, Mr. Jervis, of Whepstead. Sons Thomas 
and Robert executors. 

He belonged to the Parish of St. James, and his children were baptized in that church, 
which is here represented. In the same church the children and grandchildren of Jonas 
and Rose Bond were baptized. [See p. 45.] 

The Guide to the Town, Abbey, and Antiquities of Bury St. E. says, "St. James's 
Church, constructed of freestone, is a fine Gothic building, the west end of which is re- 
markably handsome. The first church here was erected about the year 1200." The 
present structure, though far advanced in the year 1500, was not finished till the Reforma- 
tion, when Edward VI. gave £200 towards its completion. Its length is 137 ft., and its 
breadth 69 ft. The chancel is 56 by 28 ft. 




ST. JAMES'S CHURCH, BURT ST. EDMUND'S. 

Netherhall. the seat of Robert Bright and his descendants [see Pedigree], is situated in 
Thurston, Co. Suff., England, about six miles from Bury St. Edmund's. It was visited by 
Mr. Somerby in 1851, who describes it as a beautiful place, still kept up as a gentleman's 
seat. The building stands about 700 or 800 yards from the road, and is approached 
through two magnificent avenues of ancient oaks. There is a fine lawn in front of the 
hall, Skirted by a park and preserves for game. Edmund Tyrrell, Esq., inherited the 
estate from the Brights; in what manner was not ascertained. He sold it to George 
Chinery. Esq.. from whom it passed to W. Chinery Barrett, whose widow now enjoys it. 
There are in'the hall four portraits of the Brights, pointed out to Mr. Somerby by Mrs. 
Barrett ; two gentlemen (one in armour) and two ladies. There are also two full-length 
portraits of gentlemen in the drawing-room, in the costume of the period of James II., 
which are master-pieces. One of them is an original portrait of William III. ; the 
other unknown. Mrs. Barrett has a plan of the estate, drawn by Henry Bright, 
cousin of Dea. Henry Bright, of Watertown. On this plan is an outline sketch of the 
building as it was then. It has been considerably altered in the exterior. 

* li A draper, in those days, was a man of superior station in society, and generally very wealthy."

nitmnr, 




In Bricet Church is a monument, erected to the memory of John Bright, surmounted by 
the Bright coat of arms, very elaborately executed, of which the preceding cut is a good 
representation. 



Arms of BRIGHT, of Bury St. Edmund's: Sable, a fesse argent between 3 escallops or. 
Crest. A dragon's head gule. vomiting (lames of fire proper, collared, and lined. These 
arms were confirmed, in 1615 (not then granted, as stated by Burke), to Thomas Bright. 
Jr., showing that they had been in the family long before that period. Escallops denote 
pilgrimages or service in the Holy Land. The fe>se is emblematic of the military girdle.

In the churchyard of Bury St. E. is a tombstone of the Brights, on which is the Bright 
coat of arms. The inscription is nearly obliterated, and the crest of the arms entirely so.

118 BROWNE. 

BROWNE (Brown). INTRODUCTION. 

There were three early settlers of Watertown, of the name of Browne, belonging, as we 
have reason to believe, to the same family, and nearly related, viz.: Richard, Abraham, 
and John* There is little doubt that John was nephew to Richard. It was for some 
time believed, upon apparently very satisfactory evidence, that Abraham and Richard 
were brothers ; but some facts have come to light, that would harmonize as well with the 
supposition that Abraham was the nephew of Richard. (Note 7.) Mr. Somerbyf has 
satisfactorily traced the lineage of this family, through several generations, to Christopher 
Browne, of the parish of Hawkedon, Co. of Suffolk, England, and thence to the ancient 
family of Browne, of the Borough of Stamford, in Lincolnshire, and of Tolethorpe, in the 
county of Rutland ; the latter, the principal seat of the head of the family for probably 
four hundred years or more. In the preceding pedigree, Richard and Abraham appear as 
brothers, and this was probably their true relation. Diligent search in England has 
failed to bring to light any records that bring down the Hawkedon branch of the family to 
a later period than is shown in the pedigree; and in the absence of record or other strong 
evidence to show that Abraham belonged to the succeeding generation, he will probably 
remain undisturbed in his place in the table, as shown by the records relating to the 
Hawkedon family, and which harmonizes with all known facts, except the loose recitals 
referred to in note 7 : and these may with equal plausibility be construed either way. 

NOTES TO THE PEDIGREE, pp. 116 and 117. 

Notk 1. All Saints Church is one of the principal ornaments of Stamford. It is a large, 
well-proportioned structure, consisting of a nave, two aisles, and two chancels, one of 
which is at the end of the south aisle, and the other answering to the nave. It was 
built at the expense of Mr. John Browne, merchant of the staple of Calais, who, with his 
wife, lies buried at the upper end of the north aisle. The steeple was built by his son 
William. (See Note 2.) On a gilt brass plate in the wall is this inscription : 

t: Orate pro animabns, Johannis Browne, mercatoris stapule Calisie, et Margerie uxoris ejus qui 
quidem Johannis, obijt XXVI die mensis Julii an d'n'i MCCCCXLIJ, etque quede' Margerie 
obijt XXIJ die Novembris a d'rri MCCCCLX quor' animabns p'pi'cieter Deus. Amen." 

Note 2. This William Browne was a "merchant of the staple of Calais." Leland says 
of him, that he was " a Marchant of a Very VVonderfull Richnesse, and he lyved in hoc 
estate, so that sum men be alyve that have seene him." Fuller says, " He was extracted, 
as I am credibly informed, from the ancient family of Brownes, of this county" [Rutland- 
shire]. He was Alderman of Stamford, in 1435, '44, '49, '60, '66, and 70. and sheriff of Rut- 
landshire, in 1467, '75, '83, and '86, and probably of Lincolnshire, in 1478. He was the 
founder of " Browne's Hospital," called the " Old Bead House," in Stamford, which was com- 
pleted in 1493, and dedicated in 1494, — for a warden, confrater, 12 poor men, and a nurse, 
and which he liberally endowed with the manor of Swayfield, in Lincolnshire, and other 
estates. This institution is still flourishing, its revenues being greatly increased, and the 
scope of its charities enlarged. He also built, at his own expense, the beautiful steeple 
of the Church of All Saints, Stamford. [The church had been erected by his father.] On 
the north side of the steeple, on a shield, is the device of a merchant of the staple. He 
and his wife were buried in the south (St. Mary's) chapel in said Church ( il a chapel 
proper to his family"). Where formerly stood the altar, there is a blue marble stone 
and figures of William Browne and his wife, engraved on brass. He is dressed in a long 
gown, and stands upon two cushions or wool-packs: she in elegantly flowing robes, with 
a dog at her feet. Above the canopies, over their heads, are four blank shields and scrolls. 
On that over his head is inscribed, " x me spede ;" and over hers, "Der Lady help at 
neede." At their feet, the following inscription : 

* A little previous to the year 1700, another family of the name of Brown moved into Watertown, and had there 
a temporary residence. [See p. 145.] It is not improbable that Edmund, Thomas, and William Browne, original 
grantees of Sudbury, were of the same lineage as Richard and Abraham; but no evidence of it has been dis- 
covered. 

t For the materials of the English pedigree of the Brownes we are indebted to the personal researches ot H. 
G. Somerby, Esq.; and for the digestion and arrangement of them, as well as for a careful examination of early 
English authors, we are indebted to William P. Browne, Esq. [349]. at whose instance, together with that of 
Charles Browne, Esq [112] the researches have been prosecuted in England. CZr* I' is evident from the Eng- 
lish records, and the early records in this country, that Browne is the correct orthography of the name of lliis 
ancient family ; hut the descendants of Abraham Browne of Watertown, since the 2d or 3d generation, have, 
with few exceptions, dropped the final e. 



BROWNE. + 119 

"Rex Regum, Dominus Dominantium, tu quia solus 

Velle tuo suberit, omne quod est, vel erit. 
Intravit terram corpus, sed spiritus ad te 

Currere festinat ; tu, Deus, accipe me 
In te sperantem ; fili Deus, et pater alme, 

Altitonensq', Deus Spiritus, accipe me. 
Peccavi, mala multa tali me penitet hujus, 

Ad te clamantem, tu Deus, accipe me. 
Non intres D'ne, judicare mini, nisi primo 

Digneris venie reddere quod satis est; 
Et q' pro nostris a' i' abus suscipiendis 

Rex terrenus eras, tu Deus, accipe me." 

Note 3. This Christopher Browne was Sheriff of Rutlandshire, 8th and 16th Hen. VII. 
(1492 and 1500), and 1st Hen. VIII. (1509). He came over with Hen. VII., and assisted him 
against Richard III., for which good service King Hen. VIII., on the 6th day of July, in the 
18th year of his reign, granted to his eldest son, Francis Browne, of counsel to Lady Margaret 
Beaufort (mother of Hen. VII.), Countess of Richmond and Derby, a patent, exempting 
him from holding the office of Sheriff or Escheater, and authorizing him to appear with 
his head covered in the presence of the King, his heirs, and successors, and of all great 
men, lords spiritual and temporal, and all other persons whomsoever of the kingdom. 
[Fuller's Hist, of the worthies of England.] That part of the arms, which appear in the 
1st quarter, viz., per bend Argent and Sable, 3 mascles bendways counterchanged, and 
the crest, were, in 1480 (20th Edw. IV.), granted to this Christopher Browne. [See Blore's 
Rutland, p. 219, where the grant is set out at length.] 

Note 4. Tolethorpe is situated on the right bank of the River Quash, in the Parish of 
Little Casterton, in Co. Rutland, about two miles north of the Borough of Stamford. In 
the 50th year of Edw. III. [A. D. 1376], Sir Thomas de Burton, Knt., by deed, dated on 
the Saturday next after the feast of St. Martin, the Bishop, conveyed to John Browne, of 
Stamford, Esq., all his lands, tenements, rents, and services in the Village of Little Casterton, 
with the reversion of the patronage of the church there. In the 5th year of Hen. VII. 
(1589), a fine was levied between Christopher Browne and others, plaintiffs, against 
Thomas Burton and Margaret, his wife, deforcients of a moiety of the manor of Tole- 
thorpe and tenements, with the appurtenances. From the latter period (and possibly an 
earlier one), Tolethorpe became the principal seat of the head of the family. On the 
death of John Browne, Esq., Feb. 27, 1719, without surviving issue, Tolethorpe descended 
to his nephew, Francis Browne, Esq. (son of his brother Edward, of Gretford, in Lincoln- 
shire, Esq.). on whose death without issue in 1751, the manor of Tolethorpe and other 
estates, descended to his nephew, Thomas Trollope, Esq. (son of his sister Anne, by 
Thomas Trollope, Esq.) ; who, thereupon assumed the surname of Browne. He died in 
1770, and the estates of the family descended to his only surviving daughter and heir, 
Mary, who afterwards married the Right Honorable George Fermor, Earl of Pomfret, 
who, in her right, became lord of the manors of Tolethorpe and Little Casterton, and 
patron of the church of Little Casterton, in 1807. 

Wright's History of Rutland, fol. 1684, contains an engraving of the family seat, Tole- 
thorpe Hall, a very ancient and curious building. It has since been re-edified, and now 
bears little resemblance to the engraving. The mansion and estate now belong to the 
Hon. Charles Compton Cavendish, 2d son of Mary, Countess of Pomfret, the lineal de- 
scendant and representative of the first Christopher Browne. On the marriage of the 
Countess, the place was dismantled and stripped of its furniture, and a few years ago all 
the ancient Title Deeds relating to Tolethorpe, from the very earliest period, were offered 
for sale in a second-hand bookseller's catalogue. The house is now let to Emerson Har- 
rison, Esq. 

Note 5. The estate, or home estate, of this branch of the family consisted of two tene- 
ments, called the Deans, and the Swans, contiguous, and lying in the two adjoining 
Parishes of Somerton and Hawkedon. The property is thus described and bequeathed in 
the Will of Christopher Browne (A. D., 1531) : "I gyve and bequethe to Anne my wyef, 
all that my tenement w ,h thappurten'nces lying in the pi'che of Hawkedon and Somerton, 
callyd the Deene, and all that tenement with thappurten'nces called Swaynes. To have 
and to hold the sayde ij Tenements callyd the Deene. & Swaynes, with all their appurte- 
nences to the sayde Anne during hyr lyef wilhoute any impeachment of wast, and after

the decesse of the sayde Anne, all the sayde ij Tenements w ,h all ther appurten'ncs to 
remayne to Robert Browne, my sonne, and to the heyres male of his body," and for lack 
of such issue then to his son Christopher [X Stofer] Browne and his heirs male, and for 
lack of such issue then to his son Thomas and his heirs male; and for the lack of such 
issue then to go "to my heirs and assigns forever." He makes bequests of money to his 
said sons Robert, Christopher, and Thomas, and to his daughters Elizabeth, Margaret, and 
Agnes, and to his godson [grandson?] Christopher Browne. The Will is witnessed by 
Robert Browne, filius et heres testoris; Robert Checkley, clericus [minister of Hawkedon], 
Thomas Hy'on, Johnes Cawston. 

His son Christopher's Will is dated Nov. 24, 1568; proved May 31, 1574. It makes no 
mention of his wife, who was probably de- _*> i f) 
ceased. He gives legacies in money to his ~TjU\ftf\ 
son Thomas, dr. Joan Baylye, his godsons /]P l 
[grandsons] Ambrose and William Baylye, / J 

sons of Thomas [Thomas Baylye's Will is 

dated 1559, witnessed by Christopher and Signature as Churchwarden, 1564. 

Robert Browne] ; and to his son Robert Browne, he gives "the lease of my fearme in as 
large and ampple manner as I hav it," and also all the rest of his estate, real and personal, 
and appoints him executor. Witnesses are John Andrear [? Andrew], Thomas Hamonde, 
Robert Brydges, James Hawton, and Robert Shaw, Clerk. 

Neither the Deans nor Swans are mentioned in this Will. It is not improbable that his 
elder brother, Robert, was still living, and in possession, but without heirs male, so that 
his son Thomas was heir presumptive to the Deans and Swans, under the first Christo- 
pher's Will. His son Thomas being thus provided for, would account for his younger son 
Robert being made principal legatee and executor. 

The Will of said Thomas Browne, of Hawkedon, is dated Dec. 22, 1590 : proved Jan. 
26, 1591. He had inherited the Deans and Swans and bequeathed them as follows: "To 
Johan my wife, my house wherein I dwell, with all the outhouses thereto belonginge, called 
and knowne by the name of the Deanes & Swaines, with all the lands, meadowe and pas- 
ture thereto belonginge, during her naturall life, upon this condicon following, viz., that 
[she] shall bringe up my children and paye all my debts, and kepe my howses in good 
and sufficient reparac'ons, and make no stripe or waste upon the grounde or of any Wood 
or Timber growinge in and uppon the same, and after the decease of the saide Johan my 
wife, I give all the saide howse and howses, lands, meadowe, and pasture with the 
app'tences to my five sonnes, viz., to John, Richard, Thomas, Ambrose, and Abraham, and 
their heirs, to be equally divided between and amongst them, or so many of them as shall 
be then livinge, by and at the discression of iiij discrete and wise men to be chosen by 
the p'sons [parsons] of Hawedon & Som'ton then beinge," and a bequest in money to his 
daughter Sarah. Witnesses, Robert Raye, minister of Hawedon ; John Rayner, Richard 
Gippes, "and me Peter Cooke, Clarke and writer hereof." 




HAWKEDON CHURCH. 



Mr. Somerby says, " Hawkedon is a scattered village on a pleasant acclivity, near a 
rivulet, 9 miles S. S. W. of Bury St. Edmunds. The church is a fine specimen of ancient 
architecture, with a tower and five bells. The Parish contains 339 souls, and 1210 acres

of land. It is in two manors, viz., Havvkedon Hall, the seal and property of J. Trask, Esq., 
and Thurston Hall, of which H. J. Oakes, Esq., is lord. Swan Hall, another mansion, now 
a farm-house, with a large estate, belongs to G. W. Poley, Esq. This was formerly a seat 
of the Browne family. It is probable that the estate was sold in order to be divided 
among the five sons of Thomas Browne, and thus passed out of the possession of that 
family. A small work on the County of Suffolk says, Swan Hall, another ancient man- 
sion, now a farm-house, •' was formerly a seat of the Abbot family.' This was after it 
passed out of the possession of the Brownes. 

" Swan Hall is about a mile from Hawkedon, and is now (1852) occupied by a farmer, 
Simon Moore. It is probably one of the oldest residences in the County of Suffolk, beino- 
several hundred years old. It is built of oak, and covered with plaster, excepting some 
of the principal beams, which are elaborately carved. The principal part of the building 
was taken down about forty years ago, and the beautiful panelling, carving, &c, &c, of 
the interior, distributed among individuals in the neighboring parishes. The part of the 
building which remains, does not give one any idea of its former extent. I succeeded 
nevertheless in producing a sketch which will afford an almost perfect idea of the build- 
ing as it was originally. I found an old lady at Hawkedon, who resided at the Hall at the 
time when the principal portion of it was demolished, and she remembers particularly that 
it was precisely like Thurston Hall, which is in the neighborhood, and retains all its 
original features. From this Hall I finished my sketch. The old lady spoke of the elegant 
stained glass window in the Grand Hall, a small portion of which, when the Hall was 
demolished, was transferred to the chancel window of the church, and also of the elaborate 
carved work, both within and without, not a vestige of which remains, except the beams 
on the front end. She does not know what became of it, but believes a portion was taken 
to Charity Hall, some miles distant."

ment by the various denominations of Congregationalists. There is reason to believe that 
history has done much injustice to this person. It is certain that Lord Burleigh, and after 
his death, his not much less distinguished son, the Earl of Exeter, were ever his firm 
friends and patrons. With a full knowledge of the Reformer's unconquerable hostility to 
the Episcopal English Church — for it never ceased, notwithstanding his incumbency in 
one of its churches (in which he never officiated) — Lord Burleigh, who did more than 
any other subject of England to establish that Church on its permanent basis, never failed 
to spread over him the eegis of his great power (second to the Queen's alone), to shield 
him from the effects of the relentless hostility of the Hierarchy. Lord B. knew the Refor- 
mer well, and evidently held him in much respect. Circumstances conspired to make 
not only the Episcopal party, but in the end, his own, the Puritans, hostile to him. In his 
opinions, he was probably as wide on the one hand from the extravagances of Puritanism, 
as developed in its aftergrowth, as on the other from a belief in the hierarchy of the English 
Church. Lord Burleigh, in his letter to Browne's father, says, " Inasmuch as he is your 
son, airtl of my blood;''' and Fuller says that he (Browne) was a " near kinsman" of the 
Earl of Exeter. These would intimate a nearer relationship than is shown by the above 
pedigree. 

Note 7. The records of Boston and of the county of Suffolk (Mass.) show that there 
was an Edmund Browne, a proprietor of Boston, as early as 1647, who mar., 14. 12, 1653, 
Elizabeth Oakley (daughter of " Mary, the relict of the late Robert Bouchier, alias Garret" 
[? Gannet] . She was probably a daughter by a former marriage, or a widow at the time 
of her marriage to Browne). They had two chil. Mary, b. Dec. 15, 1656. and John, b. 
Oct. 9, 1660. He died, after an absence of several years, at Sardainham [1 Surinam]. 
Both of his chil. also died early, and Jonathan, the son of Abraham Browne, of Water- 
town, inherited his land as next kin. In a deed, dated Jan. 1, 1672-3, from Jonathan to 
one Richard Taylor, conveying the reversion of some of Edmund's real estate, he recites 
that he is "cousin and next heir of said Edmund;" and afterwards, in the same instrument, 
he calls Edmund his uncle. In a suit for possession of a piece of land belonging to the 
estate, Edmund (1682) is incidentally several times called the uncle of Jonathan. The 
records relating to Edmund bear evidence of great carelessness, and are in many respects 
contradictory and difficult, if not impossible, to harmonize with any hypothesis that may 
be assumed to reconcile them. It is believed, according with the first recital in said 
deed, that Edmund was a nephew of Abraham, and brother to John, of VVatertown, and 
a son of John, of Hawkedon. His birth does not appear in the table of pedigree; but the 
early parish register (commencing in 1538) is lost. There is now none dating back 
beyond 1709. It was the custom, as early as 1560, for clergymen to deposit certified 
copies of these registers each year in the Will offices. Very few of these copies are now 
in existence. It was amongst those remaining in the office at Bury St. Edmunds, rela- 
tive to Hawkedon, that were found the baptisms of Mary and John, the chil. of John and 
grand chil. of Thomas, of Hawkedon. The births and baptisms of no other grand chil. 
of said Thomas have been discovered. 

We have scarcely a doubt that Edmund was the son of John, of Hawkedon. This sup- 
position best harmonizes all known facts. The name of his son, John, for his supposed 
paternal grandfather — the daughter being named Mary for her maternal grandmother — is 
confirmatory of it. It is possible that Abraham, of Watertown, was also a son of John, 
of Hawkedon, and that his place in the table should be a degree below that of Abraham 
of the pedigree, with whom we have identified him, but the balance of probabilities 
inclines the other way. 

Note 8. This Christopher Browne was one of the persons selected by King Charles II. 
to be invested with the Order of The Royal Oak. For prudential reasons — the fear of per- 
petuating party feuds — the project of establishing the order was abandoned. 

RICHARD BROWNE, son of Thomas and Joan, of Swan Hall, Hawkedon, Co. Suffolk ; 
b. about 1575 or 6; settled first in London, where he was a ruler in a church of Separa- 
tists, and there rendered important services to some of the persecuted Non-conformists. 
He was one of the first settlers of Watertown, and the first Ruling Elder of the Church. 
He was one of the first that applied (Oct., 1630) to be admitted freeman, and was ad- 
mitted May 18, 1631. Towards the end of 1632, he was removed from the office of 
Ruling Elder, on account of his sentiments, which were too liberal for the ecclesiastical 
notions then prevalent. There was, however, entire accordance between him and his 
very worthy pastor, Rev. George Phillips; and such was Mr. Browne's influence, that 
Hubbard says, he " was thought sometimes to overrule the Church." 



BROWNE. fl23 

Hubbard had imbibed the prejudices of Gov. Winthrop; yet he says Mr. Browne was a 
man of good understanding, and well versed in the discipline of Separation [i. e., of Congre- 
gationalism], having been a Ruler in one of their churches in London. And what he 
says of Mr. Phillips, throws a clear light upon the cause of Mr. Browne's removal from 
office. " It is said that Mr. Phillips, of Watertown, was at the first more acquainted with 
the way of church discipline, since owned by the Congregational churches; but being 
then without any [magistrate or minister] to stand by him (for wo to him that is alone), 
he met with much opposition from some of the magistrates [Winthrop, Dudley, Noel, 
&c], till the time that Mr. Cotton came into the country, who, by his preaching and 
practice, did by degrees mould all their church administrations into the same form, which 
Mr. Phillips [and Mr. Browne] labored to have introduced into the churches before." 

What Winthrop and Hubbard characterize as a "violent spirit" and passion, in Mr. 
Browne, was doubtless his bold and unyielding advocacy of his more liberal and just views; 
his unflinching confronting of the magistrates in their " much opposition" to Mr. Phillips ; 
and the early and earnest resistance he and Mr. Phillips presented to the insidious en- 
croachment of arbitrary power. The magistrates fomented a disturbance in Watertown 
Church, and continued to agitate, until their bigoted, officious intermeddling had effected 
the removal of the Elder from office. We cannot discover any difference in sentiment, 
or any alienation, between Mr. Phillips and Mr. Browne. The latter, being much older, 
was probably more bold, less conciliatory in his disposition and manner, and hence the 
pertinacity of the magistrates. Mr. Browne's views, says the ecclesiastical historian of 
Massachusetts, were "much to his honor in an age of bigotry, though censured by worthy 
men, influenced by the spirit of the age." 

Mr. Browne, nevertheless, retained the unabated confidence of his fellow-townsmen, 
both as a Christian and a citizen. As an evidence of their regard for his discretion and 
Christian character, they sent him, as one of their commissioners, to Wethersfield, in 
order to heal the distractions in that (Watertown) colony. The most important civil trusts 
were, for a long time, almost constantly placed in his hands. He was a member of 
several of the earlier boards of Selectmen, and was a Representative of Watertown from 
the first (1634), most of the time, until 1657. Notwithstanding the disparaging tone 
of Winthrop — "one Richard Browne" — and of Hubbard, who took his tone from Win- 
throp, the Colonial Records furnish ample proof that Mr. Browne was not less respected 
and confided in by the Court, than by his neighbors and townsmen. He was a member 
of the first three Juries of Inquest empanelled in the colony, and of the second and third 
of these juries, he was the foreman. Previous to Mar. 22, 1630-1, Sir Richard Saltonstall 
appointed him a referee in a case, where he was a party. 

Aug. 1, 1637, he was the agent, on the part of Watertown, for agreeing upon a rate ol 
£400, to be levied upon the several [13] towns in the Bay. May 17, 1637, he was 
chosen by the General Court to assist at the Courts of New Town. Sept. 6, 1638, the 
Court granted him 200 A. of land, which was not located until Oct. 17, 1649, when the 
Court granted it to be "laid out next the village granted to Dedham." In Sept. 1638, 
when the General Court ordered that, in those towns where no magistrate resided, com- 
missioners should be appointed "to end small causes," Mr. Browne was one of those 
appointed for Watertown, and he continued to be reappointed until the making of those 
appointments was transferred to the County Courts. He continued to receive the same 
appointment from Mid. Co. Court until 1656, about the time he moved to Charlestown. 
May 22, 1639, he was fined £5, for going to Connecticut without leave, neither acquaint- 
ing the Court nor the Council, he being, at that time, a deputy. But the next Sept., £4 15s. 
of the fine was remitted, and the freemen of Watertown were fined £3, " for sending Mr. 
Browne away." He was probably, on this occasion, one of the two commissioners sent 
to Wethersfield to reconcile church difficulties among those, who were then, or had been, 
members of Watertown Church. Nov. 4, 1646, the Court empowered him to officiate at 
marriages in Watertown. This was the first such appointment for Watertown. Previous 
to this, it was necessary, on such occasions, to resort to magistrates in other towns. Nov. 
5, 1633, he was allowed by the Court to keep a ferry over Charles River, against his 
house ; to receive 2d. for one person, and Id. for each person if more than two. 

Dec. 2, 1657, he purchased of Humphrey and Rebecca Booth, a house in Charlestown, 
whither he moved about that time, then aged 81 or 82. His Will, dated Charlestown, 
Aug. 6, 1659, proved Mar. 20, 1660-1, mentions wife ELIZABETH, sole exec ; x ; be- 
queaths small sums to his son Thomas Browne, and his grandsons, Richard and George 
Browne, "if they come and personally appear in this land to demand the same and not 
otherwise. [It has not been ascertained, that either of them ever came to this country.]

after her decease, to be equally divided between his son and grandsons." He also wills 
that all those goods which were brought to him by his wife, " whose properties are not 
altered," be left " to her discretion, to dispose of them as she pleaseth." And in a post- 
script, adds to his wife : " the sum of twenty pounds, as well as her owne goods, on the 
other side expressed." It is supposed that his son Thomas was by a former marriage, not 
by Elizabeth, mentioned in his Will. This supposition is favored by the terms of his own 
Will, but more strongly by that of his widow. Inventory dated Oct. 6, 1660, real estate

JOHN BROWNE, bap. at Hawkedon, Oct. 11, 1601, son of John, elder brother of Richard 
Browne, arrived in the Lion, Sept. 16, 1632; settled in Watertown ; was adm. freeman 
Sept. 3, 1634, and was buried June 20, 1636, set. 36. By wife DOROTHY, he had, 1. 
Hannah, b. Sept. 8, 1634. 2. Mary, b. Mar. 24, 1635-6. His widow was probably the 
wid. Browne, mentioned in the Town Records, Dec. 4, 1648. If, however, Abraham 
Browne died previous to this date, this might have been his widow. 

ABRAHAM BROWNE, a younger brother, or a nephew of the Elder, Richard Browne. 
[See note 7.] He was a very early settler, perhaps one of the first of Watertown, 
and was admitted freeman, March 6th, 1631-2. He was a land surveyor, and, as is 
manifest from the records, in the early municipal transactions of the town, he received 
important appointments, and trusts more numerous than were conferred upon any other 
person. No two men were more respected and confided in, than he and his relative, 
Richard Browne. The records of the town do not embrace the transactions of the first 
four years after the settlement. They commence in 1634, extend to Nov. 28, 1643, when 
there occurs a hiatus of four years, and recommence Nov. 8, 1647. He was selectman 
from 1636 to 1643, inclusive. In 1634, he was appointed, in conjunction with Robert 
Seeley, to survey all the lots that are granted; and they were also appointed conservators of 
timber trees — none to be cut down without their assent. In 1635, he was one of the seven 
freemen appointed to divide every man "his propriety" of meadow and upland, that is 
ploughable, and the rest to lie common. In the same year, he was appointed, with John 
Warren, to lay out all highways, and to see that they are repaired. Also, to survey the 
lots granted by the selectmen. In 1638, ordered that all lots, both of freemen and 
foreigners, shall be measured and bounded by Abraham Browne, who shall give a note of 
each survey to be enrolled in the town books. In the same year, he and Thomas Bartlett 
were appointed to measure and lay out the remote meadows, according to their best 
judgments. He was also appointed, with four others, to lay out the farms as they are ordered, 
and they were authorized to include any rock or swamp in any survey, not counting it in the 
number of acres. In 1639, the highway from Dorchester Field to the Flats, as Abraham 
Browne laid it out, was confirmed forever. Also, the highway leading from Robert Jennison's 
to the river, betwixt the lands of John Barnard and Jeremiah Norcross, together with about 
half an acre of land on the river, for the landing of goods, was ordered to remain forever, 
as laid out by Abraham Browne, Ap. 30, 1639. Also, that when Ab. Brown shall lay 
out any whole squadron of the great lots, they to whom the land belongs shall make him 
present pay. In 1640, Abraham Browne, " Surveyor of the Town," was directed to 
survey the subdivisions of the Hither and Further Plains; and the next year (1641), he 
was directed to do the same. Also, it was ordered that he have Ad. the acre for surveying 
the two plains and the remote meadows. Also, he was empowered, 1643, to warn tres- 
passers on public timber, and to have one-fourth of the fines. Oct. 7, 1641, the General 
Court appointed him one of the committee for laying out the 1000 acres of land granted 
to the Artillery Company at its first organization. 

The Court Records of Middlesex County, show that Oct. 1, 1650, his Will and Inven- 
tory were "accepted at court." And an order of court, made Oct. 6, 1691, respecting the 
final settlement of his estate, recites of him as "deceased in the year 1650." These 



BROWNE. fl25 

dates indicate, it is thought, satisfactorily, the year of his decease; though there are some 
circumstances that favor the belief that he died between the close of 1643 and 1648. The 
latest' mention of his name in the Town Records, is Nov. 28, 1643, which is the latest 
date previous to the before-mentioned hiatus of four years. It is, therefore, unknown 
when his public services terminated. As his name does not occur in the Records between 
Nov. 8, 1647, when they recommence, and 1650, the supposed date of his decease, it is 
probable that ill health or bodily infirmity had compelled him to withdraw from his very 
large participation in public business. 

No original Will of Abraham Browne has been discovered, but in the files of the County 
Court for 1670, is found the following, which, by the concluding certificate, purports to be 
a copy of it. "The last Will and Testament of Abraham Browne, of Watertowne, dec'd; 
being of good and perfect memory but Weake, as is witnessed by us whose names are 
here under written. Impr. : after the decease of his wife, he gave and bequeathed unto 
his two sonnes, Jonathan and Abraham Browne, his house and lands ; but giving liberty 
to his wife, that if shee had need shee might sell some parcells of it. Also, he gave and 
bequeathed unto his two daughters, Sarah Browne and Mary Browne, each of them one 
ewe sheep, having each of them one before, as was testified. The rest of his goods and 
estate he gave unto Lydea, his wife, making her his sole executrix to perform this, his 
Will and Testament. Witnesses, Richard Browne, John Whitney. Entered out of the 
original on file with the Register, at Cambridge, in the County of Midd., in New England, 
and is a true coppie, being compared and examined by Thomas Danforth, Recorder." 

This instrument resembles a synopsis, more than a literal copy of an original Will. It 
is not improbable that it was a nuncupative Will, and the above a copy of the declara- 
tion by the witnesses of its provisions. 

There was much delay and probably some difficulty in settling his estate, and the set- 
tlement seems to have been made finally, in entire disregard of the provisions of the Will. 
On the 6th Oct., 1691, the Court ordered the parties concerned in the estate of Abraham 
Browne, of Watertown, deceased in the year 1650, be sent for, to attend the adjournment 
of the Court, in order to a settlement of said estate; and they appointed a committee, 
consisting of John Ward, Jonathan Remington, and Thomas Greenwood, to make pro- 
posals for said settlement. The claimants were, 1. The heirs of Jonathan Browne, 
deceased, the eldest son. 2. George Woodward, in right of his wife, only dr. of Abraham 
Browne, Jr., deceased. 3. John Parkhurst, son of one of the daughters of said Abraham 
Browne, Senr. 4. The heirs of (?) Isaac Lewis, deceased, who were children of another 
dr. of said Abraham Browne. 5. William Lakin, in right of his wife, youngest daughter 
of said Abraham Browne. 

Owing, as they said, to a change in the government of the Colony, by the coming over 
of a new Charter, the committee did not report until Jan. 22. 1693-4. They assigned f 
(a double portion) of the estate to the heirs of Jonathan, and the other § to the other four 
claimants. At the same time they recommended that these four claimants should sell 
their shares to Abraham Browne, eldest son of Jonathan, deceased, who was then ready 
to purchase ; and in that manner the estate was settled. 

It appears from the schedules of possessions, that, besides a pond of one acre, 11 lots of 
land were granted to Abraham Browne, the town surveyor, and that previous to 1642, he 
had purchased 4 other lots, amounting to 39 A., one of which, a 30 A. lot in the Great 
Dividends, had been granted to his kinsman, John Browne. Two of the lots granted to 
him were homestalls. The first, upon which he probably settled at first, contained 10 A., 
and was at the east of Mount Auburn. His second homestall of 28 A., to which he is 
Supposed to have removed very early, was bounded on the E. by the way to the Little 
Plain (now Howard Street) ; N. by Sudbury Road (now Main Street) ; S. by the way to 
Beaver Plains, sometimes called the way betwixt lots (now Pleasant Street) ; W. by his 
own land. Two other lots granted to him, one of 10 A. and the other of 6 A., were con- 
tiguous to this homestall on the West, and in the schedule of 1642, they were deemed 
parts of the homestall,* which was then enrolled as 40 A. He must have purchased other 
adjoining lands not long afterwards, as in the final settlement of his estate in 1694, his 
homestall contained 60 acres. The Committee, appointed by the Court to settle the estate, 
made an Inventory, in 1694 (of lands only), amounting to £187 ; viz. : homestall 60 A. £100 ; 

* The next lot, adjoining this homestall on the west, was 10 A. granted to Edward How. whose heirs sold it to 
Robert Harrington. From him it passed to his son Edward, and probably afterwards to his grandson Edward. 
The next lot, west of How's, was 40 A. granted to Rev. George Phillips, bounded N. by'Sudbury Road ; S. by the 
way betwixt lots [Pleasant Street]; W. by the driftway (now Gore Street). This driftway was the boundary 
between the "small lots" and the Beaver Brook plowland. About 1650, the heirs of Mr. Phillips sold this lot to 
Edward Garfield, by whose family it was held many years. In later times, it has been the well known and 
elegant residence of Governor Gore, and it is now in the possession of J. S. Copley Greene, Esq.

remote meadow, 10 A., £12; salt marsh, 4 A., £20; farm land, 107 A., £15; lot on 
Charles River, 10 A., £10. 

This is probably the only instance (unless the grant to Deacon Simon Stone be an ex- 
ception), where an original grant has remained in the possession of the direct descendants 
of a grantee to the present time. As above stated, this property passed by inheritance 
and purchase, to his grandson, Capt. Abraham Browne. Although it is stated, in the report 
of the committee for settling the estate, that Abraham " was ready to purchase" the shares 
of the other claimants, subsequent transactions render it probable that he acted in behalf 
of the widow and other heirs of his father, and that he never became the proprietor of the 
whole homestall of 60 acres. From Capt. Abraham B., a part of the land belonging to 
him passed by Will to his son Samuel, who occupied a part of his house. After his death 
his son Samuel, about 1739, moved to Leicester, and not long after this, the property was 
mortgaged to Capt. John Homans, who probably occupied it only a few years, when the 
mortgage was cancelled by Jonathan, eldest son of Capt. Abraham. From Jonathan it 
passed to his son Jonathan, Jr., Esq. From him it passed to his son Major Adam Brown, 
and it is now, at least a part of it, in the occupancy of his heirs. 

The dwelling-house, now standing, on this ancient homestall, is probably, with the ex- 
ception of the ancient " Nathaniel Bright house,'' considerably older than any other in the 
town. The "new part, ;, next the road, was built and occupied by Capt. Abraham B., when 
he relinquished the old or south part to the use of his son Samuel. The accompanying 
cut is a view of this house, as at present seen from the northeast.

large share of the municipal offices and business of Stockbridge, while it was a 
precinct and after it was incorporated as a town. He was a member of the Pro- 
vincial Congress in 1775. His Will, dated 1782, making son Samuel sole Ex'r,

their families, made the first attempt to settle Richmond, Vt, in 1775 ; but they 
abandoned it in the autumn, and did not return again until 1784, when they re- 
turned to the farms which they had begun, accompanied by other settlers, 
among whom were his sons Samuel and Joshua, the latter of whom was the 
first town clerk. He d. 1805, aged 94. Two of her chil. were killed by Indians

(IV.) Capt. JOHN BROWN, of Waltham, m.. July 20, 1732, ABIGAIL BRIGHT. 
[78.] She d. in childbed, May 4, 1?33, leaving one child. He in. (2d), July 23, 
1734, HANNAH, wid. of John Flagg [106], (accidentally killed Mar. 14, 1733-4), 
a twin dr. of John and Mary (Harrington) Bemis [Bemis, 28]. He received from 
the town numerous offices and appointments of trust; was Selectman in 1744, '45, 
'46, '47, '48, and '52, and was Rep. in 1748. He was an innholder in 1737 and 8. 
Tradition has accorded to him the reputation of being a man of more than common 
energy and enterprise. In 1759 his assessment was the largest, except one, in 
Waltham. The land conveyances on record to which he was a party are very 
numerous. In 1760, we find him in company with Wm. Stoddard, Peter Chardon, 
Samuel Adams (the patriot of the Revolution, not his father, we think, as Mr. 
Felt supposes), Robert Auchmuty, John Ruddock, Samuel Reed, Jona. Payson, 
John Lee, and Wm. Rea, "the directors and some of the partners in the Land 
Bank Company, in their own behalf, and at the request of a great number of the 
partners," petitioning the General Court for a lottery, to relieve themselves from 
the disastrous results of that celebrated association, which was established 20 
years before in Waltham, under the delusive expectation of furnishing the people 
a "better currency" than gold and silver, which had become very scarce. [Felt's 
History Mass. Currency.] In 1761 he moved to Weston, and the prestige of his 
enterprising character prevented the Selectmen of that town from serving him with 
the customary notice; and the current remark of the period, " It is impossible for 
Capt. John Brown ever to become poor.''" is still handed down, as is also its want of 
verification. In 1770-8 he resided in Newton, and returned to Weston probably 
about 1779, where he died in 1784, being in his 80th year, and in very reduced 
circumstances; the few hundred pounds realized in Continental money from the 
sale of his last real estate, turned to dust and ashes in his hands. 

He was scrupulously neat in his personal habits, and carried finish and com- 
pleteness in his dwelling, outhouses, and fences to the verge of extravagance, as 
was thought by his more plodding cotemporaries. In stature he was tall, and gen- 
tlemanly in his bearing and manners. His principal residence, while in Waltham,

(V.) JOHN BROWN, was an ardent whig, and an uncompromising persecutor of 
the tories, even before the Revolution broke out; was one of the Boston (: Tea 
Party," and was engaged, it is said, in the battle of Bunker Hill. His stature was 
6 ft. 2 in., and his proportions admirable for masculine beauty and power, in which 
he was almost unequalled. But his violent and ill-regulated temper, and his way- 
ward habits, greatly impaired his usefulness in after life. In 1777, he purchased 
of Oakes Angier, 12 acres of land in Newton, near Angier's Corner, which he sold 
in 1786, to Wm. Brown, of Boston. He afterwards settled in Maine, where tie

(V.) PHINEAS BROWN, Esq., went to Stockbridge as early as 1770 (and that 
was his residence chiefly until 1784). He was land surveyor, and for several 
years previous to the Revolution was engaged much of the time in surveying, in 
Castleton, Leicester, Salisbury, Middlebury, Cornwall, New Haven, Panton, and 
other towns, in what is now die western part of Vermont, but at that time was 
called the " New Hampshire Grants." He selected a beautiful and fertile tract ot 
land on the east bank of Otter Creek, in the township of New Haven, and com- 
menced preparations for a settlement; but being interrupted by the vicissitudes 
of the war, as well as by the active hostility of the New York claimants (to 
whom, being a surveyor, he was especially obnoxious), in the memorable con- 
troversy between that State and the settlers under New Hampshire Grants, he 
returned to Stockbridge (July 6, 1776), and was soon after called into service in 
the Revolutionary Army. He served several months at intervals during the war. 
and was in the battle of Saratoga. He kept a store for some time, being, per- 
haps, the first trader in Stockbridge. Soon after the close of the war, he moved 
his family to Vermont, arriving at New Haven, March 10, 1784. About 1790, the 
western part of New Haven was annexed to the city of Vergennes; and in 1796, 
this part was separated from Vergennes and incorporated into a new town by the 
name of Waltham — so named from Mr. Brown's native town in Mass. Mr. 
Brown was an active, influential man in the affairs of each of the three towns 
mentioned. He repeatedly represented New Haven in the State Legislature, ami 
was a member of the Convention for revising the State Constitution, in 1786 : 
was an Alderman of the city of Vergennes ; was a civil magistrate more than 
twenty years, and continued to hold leading offices in Waltham, until physical 
infirmities compelled him to decline them. In his religious tenets, he was a Con- 
gregationalist, having been thirty-six years a member of that church. His tem- 
perament was ardent; but firmness, with him the offspring of clear perceptions 
and strong convictions, was a prominent feature of his character. He was a 
skilful surveyor, a successful farmer, a good neighbour, and an intelligent magis- 
trate and legislator. He is still remembered as remarkable for his practical good 
sense, and sound, discriminatingjudgment. ^-^ > /

2. James, b. in C, Mar. 10, 1787. 

3. Jacob, b. in C, July 19, 1789. He enlisted in the army as a private soldier 
at the beginning of the war of 1812, and for his good conduct, as Orderly 
Sergeant, at the battle of Chrystlers Field, was promoted to the rank of 
Ensign. He served during the whole of the war, and " was in nearly all 
the hardfought battles on the Niagara frontier in 1813 and 14." Before the 
close of the war he was promoted to the rank of first Lieutenant, and after- 
wards gradually rose to the rank of Major of Infantry, which rank he held 
many years. 

With the 7th Reg. of Infantry, Major Brown was placed, by Gen. Taylor, 
in command of the entrenched Camp or Fort on the Rio Grande, opposite 
to Matamoras, and which sustained a cannonade and bombardment of 160 
hours by the Mexicans. At 10 o'clock, a.m., of May 6, 1846, during this 
bombardment, Major Brown was struck by a shell, which shattered his leg. 
This was amputated above the knee, and he died on the 9th. Gen. Taylor, 
in his official despatch, dated May 9, 1846, says : u It affords me peculiar 
pleasure to report that the field work opposite Matamoras has sustained 
itself handsomely during a cannonade and bombardment of 160 hours. 
But the pleasure is alloyed with profound regret at the loss of its heroic 
and indomitable commander, Major Brown, who died to-day from the effect 
of a shell. His loss would be a severe one to the service at any time ; but 
to the army under my orders, it is indeed irreparable." 

A writer in the Boston Journal says, '•' Major Brown was a noble speci- 
men of a man. He was modest and unassuming in his deportment, and 
possessed a heart overflowing with the milk of human kindness. As an 
officer, he was distinguished for his courage, military skill, coolness, and 
decision in the hour of battle.

BROWN. 



"Since the peace of 1815, Maj. Brown has been employed on the staff 
a great portion of the time. His sound judgment, his integrity and business 
capacity rendered him a valuable officer in time of peace as well as in 
war. He served two or three years in the memorable Florida campaigns. 
He passed some years at Little Rock, Arkansas, engaged in matters con- 
nected with our Indian affairs. While there he was chosen President of 
the Bank of Arkansas, an office which he thought proper to decline as in- 
compatible with his situation as an officer of the army." His body was 
buried at the foot of the flag-staff of the Fort, named Fort Brown, in honour 
of its heroic defence ; and the city founded on its site has been named 
Brownsville. His body has since been removed and reinterred under the 
flag-staff of the U. S. Barracks in Brownsville. He m. Sarah Smith, of the

BULLARD. 

There was a considerable number of early settlers in Massachusetts of the name 
of Ballard, and it must now be very difficult, if not impossible, to arrive at clear- 
ness and certainty in collecting and arranging genealogies of each ot them. 
There is a tradition among them, that eight brothers of this name came early 
and about the same time to America, viz. Robert, Benjamin, Jonathan, William, 
John, Isaac, Nathaniel, and George. This name has sometimes been confounded 
with Ballard, and the traditions are not reliable. [See Farmer and Barry.] There 
were three early settlers of Watertown of the name of Bullard, viz. Robert, Ben- 
jamin, and George. 

ROBERT BULLARD, husband of ANNE, buried 24, 4, 1639, aged 40 [Watertown 
records]. No notice of any children has been discovered. 

BENJAMIN BULLARD, who m. a dr. and probably the only child of Henry 
Thorpe, of Wat.; was a proprietor of Wat., 1642. There is no notice of any chil. 
of his in the Wat. records. Oct. 3, 1673. he, then of Sherburne, with wife MAR- 
THA, sold, to Justinian Holden, a dwelling-house, with land, and several other 
parcels of land in Wat., amounting to more than 100 acres. This sale was the 
next year after the death of Henry Thorpe, who had occupied the house. [See 
Reg. of Deeds, vol. v., p. 30.] Had this B. B. a first wife, named Sarah? 

3 (I.) GEORGE BULLARD, b. 1608 ; adm. freeman, 1641; settled in Wat., where

from Wat., in 1635, to settle Wethersfield, Conn., which was at first called Wa- 
tertown. There was a locality in Watertown, long known as •' Chester's Mea- 
dow." and " Chester Brook." [See Hinman, p. 123 and 4.] (?) Wm. Chester sold 
13 acres planting ground, in Wat., to Wm. Paine, prior to 1642. 



CHILD. 

Deacon EPHRAIM CHILD came to America in 1630; was adm. freeman May 18, 
1631, and was probably one of the first Deacons of the church at Watertown. He 
was Rep. 12 years, between 1646 and 1662, inclusive; Selectman 15 years, be- 
tween 1636 and 1662, inclusive; and Town Clerk 1651. '60, '61, and '62. He re- 
peatedly received important appointments from the General Court. [See Butler, 
p. 17, and Worcester Magazine, II. 131, 142, and 149.] He was often appointed', 
by the County Court, one of the Commissioners of Wat., "to end small causes." 
He d. Feb. 13, 1662-3, aged 70, s. p. His Will, dated Nov. 10, 1662, mentions 
Richard and John Child [who were brothers], and Ephraim, son of Benjamin 
Child, of Rox. It is probable that Richard, John, of Wat., and Benjamin, of Rox., 
were his nephews. [Ephraim Child, a son of Benjamin, to whom he bequeathed 
30 acres of dividend land, and 10 acres in Dorchester Field, was slain by Indians 
at Northfield, Sept. 4, 1675, and his brother Benjamin, Jr., of Rox., sold the 30 A. 
dividend land to Benjamin Peirce. of Wat., Mar. 2, 1682-3.] He bequeathed " to 
my loving cousin, William Bond," 40 acres in the hither plain, whom, in con- 
junction with his wife. ELIZABETH, he appointed executor. His wid. Elizabeth, 
in her Will, dated June 11, proved Oct. 1, 1667, appointed her "loving cousin, 
William Bond," her sole executor. Ephraim Child, m., in Nayland, Suffolk Co., 
Eng., Feb. 8, 1625, wid. ELIZABETH PALMER. It is supposed that she was a dr. 
of Jonas and Rose Bond of Bury St. Edmund's, where she was bap. Mar. 12, 1599, 
and an aunt of William Bond, "her loving cousin." [See Bond, p. 47.] Dea. E. 
Child executed a deed, Mar. 15, 1647, in favour of Elizabeth Foot, of London, of 
whom William Goddard. of Wat., was Att'y in 1665. The appraisal of his homestall 
and the amount of his Inventory (£770. 15.) show that he was one of the most 
affluent of the first settlers. And the distribution of his widow's wardrobe and 
furniture, by her Will, shows that she had some of the elegancies, as well as the 
comforts of life. £

CLARK (Clarke). 
Among the early settlers of Watertown, there were three of the name of Clarke — 
John, William, and Hugh. 

JOHN CLARKE, supposed to be the "Mr. Clarke." appointed Constable by the 
Court, 1632, adm. freeman 1635, and proprietor of Watertown 1642. He is sup- 
posed to be the John Clarke, physician, who went to Rhode Island, and was one 
of the proprietors of Canonicut and of Providence; and that he was the companion 
of Nathaniel Briscoe, in England, in 1652. [See Briscoe's letter, Mass. Hist. Coll., 
3d series. Vol. I. ; I. Fiske, 1 ; and Winthrop, I., 74.] 

WILLIAM CLARKE, a weaver, aged 27, and his wife, MARGARET, aged 21, 
came over in the spring of 1635, in the " Plaine Joan," and settled in Watertown. 
Ap. 1, 1651, he sold to Timothy Hawkins 35 acres of upland, which he had bought 
of Thomas Arnold. In 1650 he bought 60 acres of land of Thomas Boyden, and 
within a few years afterwards moved to Woburn. [See Hist, and Gen. Reg., Vol.

COOLIDGE. 165 

COOLIDGE (Coollidge, Cooledge, &c.) 
(I.) JOHN COOLIDGE, adm. freeman May 25. 1636, one of the earliest proprie- 
tors, 1636-7; was a Selectman of Wat. many times between 1636 and 1677, in- 
clusive: was Rep. 1658 ; and he was often employed in witnessing Wills, taking 
Inventories, and settling estates. The date of his arrival has not been ascertained, 
but it is probable that he was one of the first settlers, 1630. His Will, dated Nov. 
19, 1681, proved June 16, 1691, mentions wife MARY, sons John, Stephen", Simon, 
Nathaniel, and Jonathan, and gr. drs. Sarah and Mary Mixer. Inventory £237. 7. 
Grace, wid. of Roger Porter, in her Will mentions him as her brother. Perhaps 
she has used this term only to denote Christian affection.* 

Mr. Somerby says, "The Coolidge family seem to have been settled in Cam- 
bridge, Eng., from a very remote period. The name has been written in every 
possible way, as Coalyng, Coalidg, Colynge, Cooladge, &c, &c. The name first 
appears in the Subsidy Rolls for 1327, where Walter and Ralph Coalyng were 
assessed for lands in Wimpole, in Cambridgeshire. In the time of Henry VIII., 
the family were seated in Arrington, and, judging from the Wills, were at that 
time of wealth and great respectability, belonging to the gentry." [See Pedi- 
gree, p. 186.]

FIRMAN. — FISKE. — DAVID FISKE. 



FIRMAN.— JOHN FIRMAN came over in 1630, and settled in Wat., where 
his wigwam was burnt, Nov. 10, 1630. He was adm. freeman, May 18, 1631. 
He returned to England, and embarked at Ipswich for N. Eng., Ap., 1634, then 
aged 46. He was a Deacon, and was Selectman 1638. His heirs sold his lands 
in Wat. to Barnabas Farr, of Boston, who, with wife Grace, sold them to Richard 
Beers, Feb. 25, 1652-3. 



FISKE (Fisk, Frisk). 

There was a considerable number of early immigrants of the name of FISKE, 
who settled in Massachusetts ; and there is good reason to suppose that they 
were all descendants of Robert and Sibil (Gold) Fiske, who lived at Broad Gates, 
Loxfield. near Framlingham, Co. Suffolk, England. Rev. John Fiske, of Wenham, 
afterwards of Chelmsford, and his brother William, of Wenham, were grandsons 
of William, the eldest son of Robert and Sibil. David, of Wat , was a grandson 
of Jeffrey, the 2d son of Robert and Sibil. There is a tradition in the family, 
that a brother of David (1 Nathaniel), left England with him, and died on the 
passage ; and that he was the father of Nathan and John, of Wat. [Both of these 
had sons named Nathaniel. It is also to be observed, that Nathan named his 
eldest son Nathan, for himself: his second son, John, for his supposed brother, of 
Wat. ; his third, David, for his supposed uncle, of Wat., and the fourth, Nathaniel, 
for his supposed father.] James, of Haverhill, and Phinehas, of Salem, were 
grandsons of Thomas, 3d son of R. & S. [See Mass. Hist. Coll., 3d Ser., Vol. X., 
p. 156; also, Geneal. Reg., Vol. IV., p. 180.] Many of their descendants have 
changed the original, correct orthography (Fiske), for Fisk. As it would be diffi- 
cult to ascertain the usage in all cases, I shall follow the former. It is the one 
that has usually been adopted by the best educated and most intelligent. 

It is to be hoped, that some one or more of the descendants of Robert and 
Sibil, may soon be found, possessing so much family respect and attachment, 
and such a liberal spirit, as will lead to a thorough search of the English records 
for information concerning the origin and early history of this ancient, respectable, 
and, in this country, very numerous family.* 

* I have learned, since this was written, that a gentleman of Boston has become earnestly engaged 
in the genealogy of the FISKES; and that he finds others ready to co-operate.

GARFIELD (Gearfield, Gerfil, &c.) 
In the early records this name is generally written Gearfield, sometimes Gardrield, 
and Gerfeld. It rarely occurs in the Watertown records subsequent to the incor- 
poration of Waltham. SAMUEL GARFIELD was a proprietor 1642, and had a 
son Samuel, who was apprenticed to John Flemming, Nov. 1, 1653. He was pro- 
bably a son of the first Edward Garfield, but there is no further record of him. 



EDWARD GARFIELD died in Wat., June 14, 1672, aged 97. He was probably 
the father of Samuel, above mentioned, and of Edward, next following.

Benjamin Hubbard [Charlestown Records]. Ap. 27, 1643, he sold these lands to

HAMMOND. 

The families of the name of Hammond, in New England, are most, if not all 
of them, descended from two brothers, viz.: William, of Watertown, and Tho- 
mas, first of Hingham, and afterwards of Newton. The following pedigree of the 
family in England, I have received from Mr. S. Hammond Russell, through the 
obliging attention of Dr. T. W. Harris, of Cambridge. 

THOIvIAS HAMMOND, of Cavenham, Co. Suffolk; m., May 14, 1573, ROSE 
TRIPPE. He was buried Nov. 24, 1589. Chil., 



1. Elizabeth, bap. Ap. 1, 1574. 

2. William, bap. Oct. 30, 1575; "settled in New England" [Watertown]; m., 
June 9, 1605, Elizabeth Payne. (? Penn.) Chil., 

1. William, bap. Sept. 20, 1607. 2. Anne, bap. Nov. 19, 1609. 
3. John, bap. Dec. 5, 1611. 4. Anne, bap. July 14, 1616. 

5. Thomas, bap. Sept. 17, 1618, of Wat. [2.] 

6. Elizabeth, b. about 1619 (aged 15 in Ap. 1634); m. House. 

7. Sarah, b. about 1624 (aged 10 in Ap., 1634). 

8. John, b. about 1627 (aged 7 in Ap., 1634), of Wat. [8.] 

9. Benjamin. See Farmer. Probably he was not the youngest child, and he 
is not mentioned in his father's Will. 

3. Rose, bap. Ap. 22, 1578. 4. Martha, bap. Nov. 6, 1579. 
5. Marie, bap. July 7, 1587. 6. Susan. 

7. Thomas, bap. Jan. 9, 1686, of Hingham, afterwards of Newton. [See 51. p. 272.] 



(I.) WILLIAM HAMMOND, eldest son of Thomas and Rose [f3], probably 
came to America previous to the year 1634, as he does not appear to have ac- 



270 



HAMMOND. 



14.3 



companied his wife and children that year. Probably he did not settle immedi- 
ately in Watertown, as he was not a proprietor in Feb., 1636-7, but he was so in 
1642. His wife, ELIZABETH, aged 47, and dr. Elizabeth, aged 15 years, dr. 
Sarah, aged 10 years, and son John, aged 7 years, embarked at Ipswich, Eng., 
in the ship Francis, Ap. 1634. [See the foregoing pedigree for his marriage, and 
the names and ages of his children.] He was adm. freeman May 25, 1636, and 
was selectman 1648. He d. in Wat., Oct. 8, 1662, aged 90, and his wid. Elizabeth, 
d. Sept. 14, 1670, "aged about 90.''" [It will be observed that this age does not 
correspond with that given at her embarkation. Probably the latter is the correct 
one.] His Will, dated July 1, proved Dec. 16, 1662, mentions wife Elizabeth; son 

John; grandson Thomas, son of his son Thomas; drs. Elizabeth House, 

Barnes, and Sarah Smith. In a suit, in 1652, Thomas Hammond vs. John Bridge, 
it appears that H. had an uncle, Page. 



(II.) THOMAS HAMMOND, son of William [f6], m., about 1654, HANNAH 
CROSS. [See Cross.] He d.' Dec. 10, 1655. His Will, dated Nov. 6, 1655, men- 
tions his wife Hannah, dr. of Hannah Cross; and he provided for an expected post- 
humous child. His wid. d. Mar. 24, 1656-7. By her Will, dated Mar. 19, 1656-7, 
she gave to her mother half the rent of the Cross farm (in Ipswich). To John Sher- 
man, and to each of his chil. £5; to John Livermore £4. 12 ; the remainder to her 
mother and John Sherman, in trust for her son, who was committed to their care. 
Inventory of Thomas Hammond (by Edward Garfield, John Coolidge, Joseph 
Tainter, and Anthony White), dated Dec. 22, 1655. House, barn, and upland 
bought of John Stowers, £120. Cross farm in Ipswich, with 7 cows and 2 oxen, 
£200. Housing and land in England, at Lavingham, renting £14 per year, £120. 
Elizabeth Barrett, debt to be paid in two years, £25 ; also personal estate. 

1. Thomas, b. July 11, 1656.

(II.) Lieut. JOHN HAMMOND (son of William and Elizabeth), had two wives. 
1st, SARAH, b. 1643, d. Jan. 14, 1688, aged 45, the mother of his chil., and he 
left a wid. PRUDENCE, who d. Sept. 1711, aged 74. His Will was dated Nov. 18, 
Inventory dated Nov. 29, and Will proved Dec. 9, 1709. He d. Nov. 22, 1709, 
aged 85 years, 4 m., so the grave-stone; probably should be 82. Inventory £961. 

8. In 1690 his assessment was the largest in the town, and next his was that 
of William Bond, Esq. May 16, 1665, he was appointed guardian of his kins- 
woman, Mehitabel Hawkins. 

1. John, b. Feb. 3, 1653-4; d. 1659.

HARRINGTON (Herrington, Errington, Arrington). 
ROBERT HARRINGTON. His name is the last on the list of proprietors, made 
out 1642-44. He then owned a homestall, "given him by Thomas Hastings." 
This gift renders it probable that he was a kinsman of Dea. Hastings. He was 
adm. freeman. May 27, 1663, and hem., Oct. 1, 1649 (? 48), SUSANNA GEORGE, 
b. 1632, who'd. July 6, 1694, and he d. May 17, 1707. In his Will, dated 
Jan. 1, 1704-5 (the day before the 3d m. of his dr. Susanna), he mentions his 
sons John, Daniel, Benjamin, Samuel, Thomas, Edward (his '•' youngest son," to 
whom he gave his homestead), and drs. Susanna Beers, Mary Bemis, Sarah 
Winship; Joseph, son of " my son Joseph, deceased," and dr.-in-law Joanna 



HARRINGTON.

Ward, late wife of his son Joseph. His Inventory mentions 16 lots of land, 
amounting to 642£ acres, and appraised at £717. Dec. 24, 1684, he bought of 
Jeremiah Dummer, a goldsmith, of Boston, and Anna, his wife, for £90, the 
West or S. W. half (250 acres) of the Oldham Farm, where some of his descend- 
ants have continued to reside until the present time. It was bounded W. by 
Joseph Garfield; N. by Richard Cutting, wid. Sarah Fiske, and said Garfield; E. 
by Abraham Gale and John Gale; S. by Charles River. Sept. 28. 1685, he gave 
to his son Joseph, 55 acres of land, which he bought of Simon Cooledge, Jan. 
29, 1679-80, which he (S. C.) had bought of Simon Stone, and which he (S. S.) 
had bought of the wid. and heirs of Rev. Henry Green, to whom it had been 
granted by the town. It is very probable that all the families of the name of 
Harrington in New England, are descended from Robert, of Watertown. They 
are very numerous and widely dispersed. There was a Richard Harrington, or 
Arrington, of Charlestown, in 1643; but I have not discovered that he left any 
descendants, bearing his name, or that he was related to Robert. 



ABRAHAM ERRINGTON, of Camb., adm. f. c. Mar. 27, 1663; m., REBECCA, 
dr. of Robert Cutler, of Charlestown. She had been adm. f. c. some time before.
