THE PACKARD FAMILY.
1 SAMUEL PACKARD, wife and child, came from Windham, near
Hingham, England, in the ship "Diligence," of Ipswich, John
Martin, master. There were 133 passengers. He first settled in
Hingham, Mass., in 1638; from thence he removed to West Bridgewater.
He was a constable and tavern-keeper. All of this name
who have gone from the Bridgewaters were probably descendants of
his, and, in fact, nearly all of the name in this country can be traced
to that place. There have been a variety of ways in which the name
has been written; namely, Pecker, Packer, Peckard, Peckerd; but
the usual and proper name is PACKARD. His children were:--

SECOND GENERATION

2

JOHN (Robert 1), b. probably at Weymouth, between 1630 and 1640; d. Feb. 25, 1718. He lived
for a while in Braintree, but most of his life was spent in Weymouth; a wheelwright by occupation. By
his father's will John Randall received two-thirds of the pasture land lying in the Range Field, of about
nine acres, with two acres of swamp lying between his own land and the land of his brother Thomas;
bounded by Joseph Dyer and Thomas Drake. Also one-half of the fresh meadow lying between his
own dwelling house and his father's orchard, together with seven acres of the first division of
Weymouth town commons. This was lot No. 66 in the division of 1663; and he appears at the time
of his father's death to have been a householder in Weymouth. The record of land conveyances
contains no information respecting John Randall, no deed to or from him appearing to be of record.
His will dated Dec. 28, 1715, was proved April 7, 1718. In it he calls himself senior, late of
Weymouth; wheelwright. He gives to wife Sarah œ30 provided she acquit the estate of any claim by
reason of an ante-nuptial contract. Gave to daughter, Mary Philips, œ45; to daughter Mercy
Kingman œ45; to daughter Read (Hannah), wife of Thomas Reed, œ45; to daughter Elizabeth, wife
of Benjamin Orcutt, œ35; to son-in-law, Benjamin Ludden, five shillings, and to grandson, John
Ludden, œ20 on reaching twenty-one. To son John Randall he gave the rest of the estate and made
him executor. His first wife was doubtless that Mary (???) Randall whose death is stated on the
Braintree records to have occurred June 28, 1666. Children:

i. MARY, of whom we only know that she d. July, 1666.
Soon after his first wife's death he m., 1667, Mercy Aldrich, the dau. of George and Katharine of

Author: Mary E. N. Backus

This book has over 30 families, and about 1500 names
documented. Includes very interesting stories and personal
accounts. Also includes references to information leading to
this book.

ABRAHAM SHAW married, June 24, 1616, in the parish of
Halifax, Yorkshire, England, Bridget Best (baptized April 9,
1592, daughter of Henry Best of Ovenden). Their children
whose baptisms were recorded in Halifax parish registers were
Joseph, Grace, Martha (died young), Maria, John (died
young), another John, and Martha. Joseph was baptized March
14, 1618, O.S. nearly three years after the marriage of his
parents and that he had an elder sister, Susanna, appears from
later evidence. The family came to New England some time in
the early 1630's (after January 6, 1632, O.S. the date of the
baptism of the youngest child, Martha).

At first a proprietor in Watertown, Abraham Shaw lost his
house and goods there by fire in October 1636, and probably
soon after settled in Dedham, having been one of the
subscribers to the Dedham Covenant earlier that year. He
became a freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony the 9th of
March 1636/7. At a town meeting in Dedham, November 23,
1638, the sale of land by Abraham Shaw to Ferdinando Adam,
and by Joseph Shaw to Henry Brocke, was confirmed by note
under hand, since neither of the Shaws was present. The father
died before the following 25th of March (the first day of the
new year 1639) since his inventory is dated 1638. His will
is not dated and it seems to have been a mere Memorand and
is soheaded. His wife is not named in it and the date of her
death is not on record. Specific bequests were made to John
and Martha, being infants, and also to Marye (Maria, baptized
June 18, 1626, and now about twelve years old). "My lott at
Dedham" was to go to Joseph and John. "All my children" are
referred to but only the above four are individually named.
Witnesses were Joseph Shawe and Nicholas Biram, and they
were ordered by the court to make an inventory by help and
advice of Mr. Edward Allen.

Thomas Lechford, the first professional lawyer in the Colony of
Massachusetts Bay, spent about three years in Boston (27 June
1638-3 Aug. 1641). His note book contains not only the
record of every instrument drawn by him while here but an
account of the compensation he received. One entry concerns
Abraham Shawe, sometime of Halifax in the County of York
and late of Dedham in New England, who made his last will
and testament about November 1638 and thereby made
Joseph Shawe his eldest son and Nicholas Biram his
son-in-law his executors. (Joseph Shaw in his will, years later,
called Nicholas Byram his brother, thus confirming Thomas
Lechford's statement of the relationship.) A power of attorney
was executed and sent to Mr. [blank] Best of Halifax enabling
him to attend to certain matters in England (to receive all
profitts of Colemines whatsoever & the same Colemines to sell
&c). Mr. Lechford's fee was five shillings.

Weymouth became the home of the Shaw family and at a town
meeting in Dedham November 29, 1639, Robert Mason asked
and received liberty to purchase Joseph Shawe and John
Shawe their Lott which was given them by their Fathers last will
and testament.

Abraham Shaw (1), the immigrant
ancestor of Thomas Asa Shaw, of Worcester, came from
Halifax, York county, England and settled in Dedham,
Massachusetts, before 1636. In that year he signed the famous
Dedham Covenant. In the old country he was a clothier and a
man of some property. He was a planter at Dedham. When he
first came to America he went to Watertown, Massachusetts,
where he was a proprietor in 1636; his house was burned in
October of that year, whereupon he seems to have removed to
Dedham, where he was a constable in 1636-37-38. and was
admitted a freeman March 9, 1637. He removed to Cambridge
and was a town officer there in 1640. He was owner of coal
mines in Halifax and November 2, 1637, shortly before his
death, he received a grant of half the coal and iron he might
find in the common lands. He was given a permit to erect a
corn mill February 12, 1637. Mary, supposed to be his wife,
was admitted to the church at Charlestown, July 1, 1646. He
died in 1638, and his will, made November of that year, was
proved before the end of the year. He mentions Joseph, John,
Mary and Martha, his children, and Nicholas Byram, son-in-law.
Of the children Joseph removed to Weymouth; John is mentioned
below; Mary was born about 1638; Martha born about (???);
Susanna married Nicholas Byram before 1638.

This book has over 30 families, and about 1500 names
documented. Includes very interesting stories and personal
accounts. Also includes references to information leading to
this book.
NICHOLAS PHILLIPS was in New England by 1636
when his name appears as one who had subscribed to the
Dedham covenant. The last town meeting which he attended
in Dedham was on the 17th of May 1639. He is listed as a
freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony May 13, 1640
and had removed to Weymouth where the birth of his third
child, Experience, is on record May 8, 1641. That his wife's
name was Elizabeth is known as she acknowledged consent
to her husband's sale of house and land on August 11, 1651.

Next to Plymouth, Weymouth is the oldest permanent
settlement in New England. The origin of the name Old
Spain, a part of Weymouth still so-called, is unknown. The
Indian name for the region was Wessagusset. In 1622,
Thomas Weston, an enterprising commercial adventurer of
London, who had been of great aid to the Plymouth Colony
in its migration, and whose interest in the New World never
waned, sent over a small party of men to establish a trading
post. After exploring what is now known as Boston Harbor
they decided upon Wessagusset, purchasing the land from a
local Indian sagamore; but the settlement, for various
reasons, was a failure and broke up after the first winter.


Page 131
In 1623, Captain Robert Gorges, under powerful English
patronage, brought over a new company, many of them
bringing their families and with an Episcopalian clergyman as
their spiritual head. Possession was taken of the abandoned
blockhouse of the Weston party but Wessagusset, on
account of its long and devious channel, was found to be an
unsuitable spot for a trading post and within a year Captain
Gorges gave up his attempt to found a feudal colony in the
new land and returned to England, followed soon by the
English divine.

But it is clear that some of the families stayed on at
Wessagusset on their own initiative, joined, it is believed, by
some of the Weston first-comers and from time to time by
others. In 1635 twenty-one families came over from
Weymouth, England, with the Rev. Joseph Hull and were
permitted by the authorities at Boston to sit down at
Wessagusset. Shortly afterward the town was renamed.

The History of Weymouth says that Phillips Creek (which is
still so-called today) got its name from the Nicholas Phillips
family which lived in its neighborhood; that the old Phillips
homestead was situated upon the creek in Old Spain and
probably extended on both sides of that stream for a
considerable distance; and that here upon the North Bank
was probably their original settlement and very nearly upon
the identical spot where the Weston company made its short
stay. (But authorities differ as to the exact location of that
landing.)

Nicholas Phillips is called Deacon in the records of
Weymouth, where he lived more than thirty years. His will
was dated June 2, 1671, the witnesses testified the next
year, September 7, 1672, and it was proved October 3,
1672. In it he called himself aged 60 yeares or thereabouts.
His wife is not named, eldest son Richard was appointed
executor and my six youngest children are given as Joshua
Phillips, Benjamin Phillips, Alice Shaw, Experience King,
Hannah White and Abigail Phillips. The witnesses were
Elizabeth Shaw (perhaps his granddaughter) and Thomas
Dyer, Junior.

The New England Ancestry of Dana Converse Backus

This book has over 30 families, and about 1500 names
documented. Includes very interesting stories and personal
accounts. Also includes references to information leading to
this book.
WHITMARSH

In 1635 twenty-one families came over from Weymouth,
England, with the Rev. Joseph Hull and were permitted by the
authorities at Boston to "sit down" at Wessagusset (renamed
Weymouth). The shipping list turned up in England two hundred
and thirty-five years later, in 1870. It includes the names of JOHN
WHITMARSH, aged 39, Alice 35, John 11, Jane 7, Onseph
(Onsepherus) 5, and Richard 2. In the list as published in the New
England H. & G. Register (25:13-14) the name of the eleven-year-old
son is given as James, but there is no further record of a son of that
name. Elsewhere (and by the historian of Weymouth families) he is
called John. Weymouth land records add the names of two other sons,
Simon and Nicholas, and show that the father died not later than 1644.
The records have been proved by analysis to have been made between
August 26, 1642 and May 21, 1644, and in them he is referred to as
deceased.

11. JOHN1 WHITMARSH was born in England, probably
Somerset Co., 1596. John, aged 39, his wife Alice, 35, and
four children, James, Jane, Onesiphorus and Richard, came
from Weymouth, Eng., Mar. 20, 1635, in Rev. Joseph Hull's
party of 21 families. They settled at Weymouth, July, 1635.
He must have died before 1644, as in the town records

in the Weymouth land records (which analysis proved must have been made
between the 26th of August 1642 and the 21st of May 1644) is the land of
John Harding. He was a selectman of the town in 1656, shared in the division
of land December 14, 1663, and was owner of the same lands at the time of
his death. Administration of his estate was granted, October 31, 1682, to
John Whitmarsh, in right of his wife who was called the only child of John

THE PACKARD FAMILY.
1 SAMUEL PACKARD, wife and child, came from Windham, near
Hingham, England, in the ship "Diligence," of Ipswich, John
Martin, master. There were 133 passengers. He first settled in
Hingham, Mass., in 1638; from thence he removed to West Bridgewater.
He was a constable and tavern-keeper. All of this name
who have gone from the Bridgewaters were probably descendants of
his, and, in fact, nearly all of the name in this country can be traced
to that place. There have been a variety of ways in which the name
has been written; namely, Pecker, Packer, Peckard, Peckerd; but
the usual and proper name is PACKARD. His children were:--

For those of you interested in the Packard family of Early MA, I am posting his will indicating those children and grandchildren included within. It should be noted that there is no proof that I am aware of that his wife's maiden name is known, even though many genealogies refer to her as Elizabeth Stream.

For additional information on this family, visit www.mayflowerfamilies.com and use the "search this site" and "search cooke" links. The Packard Family Association, though having no website, probably has more data on this family than any current single reference. I believe there are references sprinkled thoughout this forum on the group. Another reference, though flawed, perhaps, in some details, is Nahum Mitchell's, History of Bridgewater, MA.

The surname Packard is French. It means the descendant of Bacard (combat, strong).(Source: New
Dictionary of American Family Names by Elsdon C. Smith. New York: Gramercy Publishing Company, 1988).
The name Packard appears in English records as early as the beginning of the fourteenth century.
The name was well established in East Anglia long before Samuel's birth.
Suffolk County, England:
In 1080, Suffolk was a county predominantly of villages and freeman, rather than manors and feudal
vassals. Its population was fairly evenly distributed. None of the seven principal towns, which
included Ipswich, Bury St. Edmunds, and Dunwich, had over 3000 residents.

Samuel Packard (constable and tavern-keeper) was baptized on September 17, 1612 in Stonham Aspal, a small
village in the Mid-Suffolk region of England. He married Elizabeth 1643. Samuel died on November 7, 1684 in
Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Elizabeth died on October 27, 1694 in Bridgewater.

"The status of a yeoman farmer in these times was relatively good if he were successful, and there was enough
social mobility that he could actually aspire to the status of the gentry for some of his children. Samuel was the
third son. however, and in a land where promogeniture was the practice, he could expect little in the way of
inheritance" (Packard, Karle S., "Samuel Packard and the English Origins of the Packard Family", an excerpt from a Packard's Progress editon).

Samuel Packard with his wife, Elizabeth, and a daughter left Ipswich on the Ship Diligent on June 1638. They
arrived in Boston Harbor on August 10, 1638. They immediately went to Hingham. They were in Highham in 1652, when his daughter Deliverance was baptised. The family then moved to Weymouth where Samuel was a Selectman from 1654 to 1664 and some of his children were born in Weymouth. Then they settled in Bridgewater,
Massachsuetts about 1664 where he was appointed Constable. Samuel purchased land in Bridgewater before
August 1662. He was Collector of Minister's Rates in 1670, Surveyor of Highways in 1672, and Constable again in
1674. In 1671 Samuel was licensed to keep an ordinary (tavern) which he had in 1670. Since Samuel signed with a
mark, this suggests that he could not write. This may be why some early records show the name as Packer.

Children of Samuel and Elizabeth Packard were:

1. Mary Packard was born in England, around 1637. She married Richard Phillips about 1656 in Weymouth,
MA.
2. Elizabeth Packard was born in Hingham, Massachusetts about 1639, and was baptised on July 19, 1646.
Elizabeth married Thomas Alger on November 14, 1665 in Taunton, MA. Thomas was born in England.
3. Samuel Packard was born in Hingham, MA. about 1641 and was baptised on July 19, 1646. He married
Elizabeth Lathrop about 1675.
4. Hannah Packard was born in Hingham, MA. about 1643 and was baptized on July 19, 1646. Hannah
married (1) Clement Briggs about 1667 (2) Thomas Randall about 1671.
5. Israel Packard was born in Hingham, MA. about 1645 and was baptized on July 19, 1646. There is no
record of his marriage. Israel was a Trooper in 1671. It is believed that he died in King Phillip's War.
6. Jael Packard was born in Hingham, MA about 1647. Jael married (1) ? Jones about 1665 (2) John Smith
on November 15, 1672 in Tauton, MA.
7. Deborah Packard was born in Hingham, MA. about 1648. Deborah married Samuel Washburn about 1676.
8. Zaccheus Packard was born in Hingham, MA. about 1650 and baptized on April 20, 1651 in Bridgewater,
Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Zaccheus married Sarah Howard about 1678. (Howard is an English name
meaning "descendant of Howard -high warden; ewchard; heart, protection-;" a corruption of Hayward. Hayward is also English,
meaning "the manorial official who had charge of the hedges and was guardian of the cultivated land to protect it from straying
cattle").
9. Jane Packard was born in Hingham, Ma. about 1651 and was baptized on April 20, 1651. Jane died young.
10. Abigail Packard was born in Hingham, MA. around 1651 and was baptized on April 20, 1651. Abigail died
young.
11. Deliverance Packard was born in Hingham, MA about 1652 and was baptized on April 20, 1651.
Deliverance married Thomas Washburn the son of John Washburn a soldier in Narrahansett and King
Phillip's War, and Elizabeth Mitchell.
12. Thomas Packard was born in Hingham about 1653. He married ?? and had a son named Joseph.
13. John Packard was born in Weymouth, MA. on July 20, 1655. John married Judith Winslow on April 12,
1688 in Taunton, MA.
14. Nathaniel Packard was born in Weymouth, MA. about 1657. Nathaniel married Lydia Smith about 1682.

THE PACKARD FAMILY

SAMUEL PACKARD [#354 & #378], d. Bridgewater, MA Nov. 7, 1684, m.ELIZABETH ____, d. after Oct . 27, 1694. She m(2) John Washburn, bap.Evesham, Eng. Nov. 28, 1621, d. Bridgewater, MA Nov . 12, 1686.

Samuel Packard and his wife Elizabeth, with one child, came from Windham,near Hingham, Norfolk, England. They came on the ship Dilligence of Ipswich and landed Aug. 10, 1638. There were 133 passengers aboard and the same year they settled in Hingham, MA. Samuel was among those granted land in Hingham in the years from 1635 to 1640.[1] The Packards came to New England with Reverend Robert Peck's company, which also included the Stephen Gates family. Rev. Peck came from the Hingham, Norfolk area of England and had been convicted as far back as 1615 of teaching the Puritan scruples against the requirement to kneel when entering church and of saying it is superstition to bow at the name of Jesus. Peck was suspended in 1636, but he continued to hold secret services for select parishoners. Only the threat of summons before the draconian Court of High Commission in London drove the elderly minister and his devoted followers into exile in 1638. Some fellow villagers had already moved to New England and settled in 1635 at Bear Cove on the south shore of Massachusetts Bay. That year
Bear Cove was renamed Hingham. The NewHingham would prove as independent and ornery as Old Hingham. The church retained its presbyterian bias among its congregationalist neighbors and fiercely asserted its local rights in the 1645 militia case, creating a constitutional crisis in the colony. About 200 people came with the Peck company, depleting Hingham by about a third of its residents.[6]

From Hingham the family removed to Weymouth about 1653, where Samuel was a selectman. The family then removed to Bridgewater between 1660 and 1663. Samuel served as a constable in Bridgewater in 1664[3/4:61] and 1674[3/5:145] and held an innkeeper's license in 1671.[3/5:54] In Marc hof 1671-2 a Samuel Packard (maybe the son) was fined one pound by the Plymouth Colony Court f or "selling liquor and cyder to theIndians".[3/5:128] He was also one of twelve laying out highways in Bridgewater in 1667 [3/4:1545] and 1668[3/4:1923]

Samuel had six sons and six daughters. The sons were all soldiers in King Phillip's War in 167 5 and 1676.[1] It has been stated by some that Samuel probably served as well. However this seems unlikely due to his advanced age at the time (71 or so). His will was dated Oct. 29, 1684 and probated March 3, 1684-5, he being then between 70 and 80 years of age. Samuel signed the will as "Samuel Packer".[2] Since then the name has mostly taken the form of Packard. His widow remarried after his death to John Washburn of Bridgewater.

July 1, 1684 a Samuel (possibly son of the immigrant) was on the grandjury that found Robert Trayes, negro, guilty of shooting Daniel Standlake of Scituate in the leg. Standlake's shattered leg had to be amputated from which he subsequently died. Trayes was let off with a fine as the shooting was found to be an accident (or "misadventure" as stated in therecords).[3/6:14 12]

Several sources list Samuel's parents as George and Mary (Wither) Packard of Colmans, Whitsun Green, Stonham Aspal Parrish, Suffolk, who were married at Woolpit Parrish March 27, 1600. George was buried at Stonham Aspal Dec. 14, 1623. Mary died at Stowmarket, England in 1652.[5 ] However no proof is given to connect Samuel of Norfolk county England and of Massachusetts with Samuel, the son of George and Mary Packard, who was baptised in Suffolk in 1612. In fact, it is believed that Samuel of Massachusetts was born around 1604, and since baptisms were performed on infants, it would seem highly unlikely the two Samuels were the same man. Furthermore , George Packard left a noncupative will which did not mention any children by name. Mary, however, listed the children but did not include Samuel.[5] Whether the ommission was due to the fact that he had already died or was left out because he had moved to America is not known. These same sources give this Samuel's wife's name as Elizabeth Stream, again with no proof. She is suppossed to have been born about 1614 and
died in Hingham, MA June 17, 1716. Again, it seems improbable that the woman lived to 102 years of age. If she was his wife, either the death date is incorrect or Samuel had two wives named Elizabeth, the later one being much younger than the first.

Samuel (1) PACKARD(2346) was born about 1612
in Windham, England.(2347) History of North
Bridgewater, Plymouth County,Massachusetts, From Its
First Settlement To The Present Time With Family
Registers. By Bradford Kingman. Published by the
author,
Boston, 1866

"Samuel Packard, wife and child, came from Windham,
near Hingham, England, in the ship""Diligence," of
Ipswich, John Martin, master.There were 133
passengers. He first settled in Hingham, Mass, in
1638; from thence he removed to West Bridgewater. He
was a constable and tavern-keeper. All of this name who
have gone from the Bridgewaters were probably
descendants of his, and, in fact, nearly
all of the name in this country can be traced to that place.
There have been a variety of ways in which the name has
been written; namely, Pecker, Packer, Peckard, Peckerd;
but the usual and proper
name is Packard."

The above is basically reflected as the same in Mitchell's
History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater, Baltimore
1970, Gateway Press.
He emigrated in 1638 from Hingham MA.(103) (2348) (2349)
He died on 11 Jul 1684 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Co,
MA. (2350)


Records show Samuel owned a grant of land in 1638 at
Hingham. He removed with his wife, Elizabeth, about
1660 from Hingham to Bridgewater, Mass. with their
twelve children, Elizabeth, Samuel Jr., Zaccheus, Thomas,
John, Nathaniel, Mary, Hannah, Israel, Jael, Deborah,
and Deliverance.

That he first lived in Hingham and lastly in Bridgewater is
generally recognized, but most accounts have him moving
directly from the former to the later. However, he moved
from Hingham to Weymouth, where he was a Selectman
from 1654 to 1664 and at least two of his children were
born. He was still in Hingham in 1652 when his daughter,
Deliverance, was baptized, but must have moved soon
thereafter.

Samuel was not an original proprietor of Bridgewater,
who were all from Duxbury, but he purchased land from
them before August 1662, when he was appointed to a
group to lay out highways. He was an active member of
the town, being Collector of Minister's Rates in 1670,
Surveyor of Highways in 1672, and Constable again in
1674. He was licensed to keep an "ordinary" (tavern) in
1671. He died there 7 November 1684, and his will,
dated 29 October 1684

In 1667 he served on the committee to lay out streets at
Bridgewater. He was made constable in 1664, and
licensed to operate a Tavern--Hotel in 1670.

In 1682 he with four sons was named amoung 80
Proprietors of Bridgewater. Bridgewater was taken from
Duxbury and deeded to Miles Standish, Constant
Southworth and Samuel Nash in 1649.

All of Samuel's sons are said to have served as soilders in
the Indian Wars of 1675 and 1676. There is a
discrepancy in the records for Samuel's death date. Some
show it to be 7 April 1684, however his last 'Will' was
dated 29 October 1684. Others list his death date as 7
November 1684. Elizabeth remarried after Samuel's
death, to John Washburn, 1685/6.

BRIDGEWATER, MASSACHUSETTS.

Bridgewater was the first inland town in the Old Colony. It was originally a plantation granted to the
town of Duxbury. When the township of Marshfield, which joined Duxbury on the east, became a
separate corporation, Duxbury applied to the Old Colony Court at Plymouth, for an extension to the
westward, as a compensation for the territory lost by the incorporation of Marshfield. In 1645, the
inhabitants of Duxbury were granted a competent proportion of lands about Saughtuckquett, toward
the west, for a plantation for them, and to have it four miles every way from the place where they shall
set up their centre, provided it intrench not upon Winnytuckquett, formerly granted to Plymouth.
Capt. Miles Standish, Mr. John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers and
William Brett were nominated by the Court to be foefees in trust for the equal dividing and laying
forth the said lands to the inhabitants. There were at first fifty-four inhabitants, who each had one
share, and were called original proprietors; only about one-third of these ever became residents of
the new plantation; one of this number was John Howard. This grant by the Court was considered as
only an authority or right to purchase it of the Indians; accordingly, Capt. Miles Standish, Samuel
Nash and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase, which they did, as appears by
the following deed:

Witness these presents, that I, Ousamequin, Sachem of the country of Poconocket, have given,
granted, enfoefed and sold unto Miles Standish, of Duxbury, Samuel Nash and Constant Southworth,
of Duxbury, aforesaid, in behalf of all the townsmen of Duxbury, aforesaid, a tract of land usually
called Satucket, extending in the length and bredth thereof, as followeth, that is to say, from the Weir
at Satucket seven miles due east, and from the said Weir seven miles due west, and from the said
Weir seven miles due north, and from the said Weir seven miles due south: the which tract the said
Ousamequin hath given, granted, enfoefed and sold unto the said Miles Standish, Samuel Nash and
Constant Southworth in behalf of all the townsmen of Duxbury as aforesaid, with all the immunities,
privileges, and profits whatsoever, belonging to the said tract of land, with all and singular, all woods,
underwoods,

lands, meadows, rivers, brooks, rivulets, etc., to have and to hold to the said Miles Standish, Samuel
Nash and Constant Southworth in behalf of all the townsmen of the town of Duxbury, to them and
their heirs forever. In witness whereof, I, the said Ousamequin, have hereunto set my hand, this 23d
of March, 1649.

JOHN BRADFORD, | Witness the of
WM. OTWAY (alias) PARKER, | mark OUSAMEQUIN
In consideration of the aforesaid bargain and sale, we the said Miles Standish, Samuel Nash and
Constant Southworth, do bind ourselves to pay unto the said Ousamequin, for and in consideration of
the said tract of land, as followeth:

7 Coats, a yard and a half in a coat.
9 Hatchets.
8 Hoes.
20 Knives.
4 Moose Skins.
10 yards and a half of cotton.
MILES STANDISH,
SAMUEL NASH,
CONSTANT SOUTHWORTH.
The grant of the Court four miles each way from a centre was located within this territory, purchased
from the native Indians. The centre was not located until several years after the purchase. The spot is
now marked by a stone monument, which stands near the Westdale railway station. An additional
grant was made by the court of New Plymonth to the town of Bridgewater in 1688. It was that they
should have six miles from the centre on the north side if the line of the Colony hindereth not, and on
the west side up to Taunton bounds (now Raynham and Easton), and on the south and southeasterly
sides unto Titicut river as far as the six miles extends, and so likewise on the east side. Actual
settlement was not commenced until 1650. Each settler had at first a grant of a house lot of six acres
on the Town river. The first lots were taken up in the part of the town which is now West
Bridgewater. The houses were near together, for the purpose of protection from the Indians. Eighteen
of the original purchasers became permanent settlers. The town was incorporated in 1656, the first
town meeting being held Nov. 3d, that year. In May of the following year, town officers were elected;
among them was John Howard who was elected surveyor of highways. In the early
Page x
Page xi
part of the eighteenth century, settlements had become quite numerous in the northern, eastern and
southern portions of the town, and the inhabitants found it inconvenient to go several miles to church
and town meetings. They began to petition the Court to be set off as separate parishes, precincts or
towns. The town of Abington was set off in 1712 from the northeast portion of the town. In 1716 the
southerly portion of the town was organized as the South Parish, for church and school purposes, but
its voters continued to go to the old centre of the town to vote until 1822.

When the North, West and East Parishes were set off and incorporated as towns with distinct names
in 1821-23, the South Parish inherited the name of the ancient town of Bridgewater, and has since
been known by that name. In 1830 its population was 1,855, in 1895 it was 4,686. It is the home of
one of the State normal schools, the school having been opened in 1840. The town is prosperous and
beautifully situated.

The northern portion of the original town, after 1716, was known as the North Parish until 1723,
when it was divided into West and East Parishes. In 1738 portions of these were set off as the North
Parish. The first settlement in the East Parish was in 1660. It was set off as a separate precinct in
1723. Was incorporated as the town of East Bridgewater, June 14, 1823. Its population then was
about 1,500; it is now about 2,900. There have been no less than twenty-two mill sites in the town. It
is a fact worthy of mention that as early as 1742, Hugh Orr owned mills in East Bridgewater, and was
the first man in America to cast cannons solid and bore them out. He bored cannons for Mass. during
the Revolutionary War. His trip hammer shop was the first of its kind in this part of the country.

The West Parish was incorporated as the town of West Bridgewater in 1822. This portion of Old
Bridgewater is more distinctively a farming district than are any of the other Bridgewaters. Many of its
citizens are successfully engaged in the dairy business and market gardening. The Howard Seminary
is beautifully located here in the centre of the town, as is also the Old Bridgewater Historical Society
building.

There was no permanent settlement in the northern portion of Bridgewater until 1700. In 1737
Robert Howard and fifty-four others petitioned the legislature to incorporate them into a separate
town. Jan. 3, 1738, they were granted an incorporation as a parish, by the name of the North Parish
of Bridgewater. In 1821 the parish was incorporated as the town of North Bridgewater. The
following call for the first town meeting is of special interest to the Howard family, as the warrant was
issued by Caleb Howard, Esq. The following is an exact copy of the original, which is in the
possession of one of Caleb Howard's grandchildren.

To Calib Howard, Esqr., one of the Justices of the piece for and within the County of Plymouth--

We, the subscribers, inhabitants of the town of North Bridgwater, request you to issue a warrant
directed to some freehold inhabitant of said town, to call a town meeting on Wednesday, the fourth
day of July, inst., at one o'clock in the afternoon, for the purpose of choosing all nessary town officers
for the year ensuing, and to act or do anything the town may think proper, agreeable to the act of
incorporation of said town.

LETTER FROM MARY HAYWARD TO JOHN HAYWARD.

This letter is a photographic reproduction of the original, which is in the possession of a member of
the Howard family. It is supposed to have been written to John Howard, the progenitor of this family,
by his mother, who spelled her name Hayward, which was not an uncommon way of spelling the
name. As it is very difficult to read the letter, the following is printed as an aid:

LONDON, Aug. 16, 1652.
LOVING SON:--
Having a fitt opportunity by a friend to send to you, I could not, out of my motherly care to you and
your brother, do less than write these few lines to you to certify you that both I and your sister are in
good health, praysed be God, and that I earnestly desire to hear from you both, how you do and how
and in what condition you are both. Your sister desires to be remembered to you both, and she and I
have sent you some small tokens of our love for you. I have sent George 3 bands and a handkerchief,
and an handkerchief to yourself, and I have sent you a shilling to you to pay for writing of a letter, if
by long silence you have forgott. I wonder, son, you should so forgott your mother, whose welfare
she tended more than anything in the world. Your sister hath sent you a book of your father's to you
and a bible to George. Did we conceive you were alive, we would have sent you better tokens.
Child, with my blessing to you both, desiring to hear from you and whether you ever intend for
England, and how your cousing Sarah doth, with my daily prayer to the Lord for you, I rest.

Your Loving Mother,
MARY HAYWARD.

JOHN HOWARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS.
FIRST GENERATION.
1
JOHN HOWARD, with his brother George, came from England, and settled in Duxbury. He was
among those who were able to bear arms there in 1643. He was about fifteen years old when he
came to Duxbury. He lived in the family of Capt. Miles Standish, who came from Shorely,
Lancashire, England. He soon removed to Bridgewater, and was one of the original settlers and
proprietors of that town. Judge Mitchell, in his history of Bridgewater, says that John Howard, the
first Howard to settle in Bridgewater, was a man of much influence in the new plantation.

In 1645 his name appears as one of the fifty-four original proprietors of the grant of land afterward
known as Bridgewater. In 1656 he was one of the two surveyors of highways for his town. In 1657
he had taken the Freeman's oath. He was one of the fourteen men whose allotment of land was in the
easterly part of the grant. He was one of the first military officers, and was appointed Ensign, Sept.
27, 1664. In May, 1676, during King Philip's War, Ensign John Howard, with twenty others, fought
with some Indians and took seventeen of them alive with much plunder, and all returned without
serious injury. June 5, 1678, he was a deputy to the General Court of Massachusetts; also on the
same date was appointed a selectman of his town. In 1683 he, with Thomas Hayward, was a
representative to the General Court. Oct. 2, 1689, he was promoted, and received his commission as
a lieutenant. Mr. Howard was a carpenter by trade. He spelled his name Haward, and so did his
descendants until after 1700. He m. Martha, a dau. of Thomas Hayward, one of the original
proprietors of Bridgewater, who came on the ship Hercules, in 1635, from Sandwich, County of
Kent, England, with five children and three brothers.

Mr. Howard lived in a house which he built near the first meeting house. It stood directly north of the
house where B. B. Howard now lives, on the corner of Howard and River streets. The
accompanying picture shows the spot of ground as it now appears; the well curb seen in the picture is
over the well that was used with Mr. Howard's house. This was the first public house in Bridgewater,
as Mr. Howard was licensed to keep an ordinary or tavern, in 1670, at this place. It would probably
be difficult to find, in the history of all the taverns that have existed in Massachusetts, another of which
it can be said, as Judge Mitchell says of this original Howard House, that "He (John Howard), was
licensed to keep an ordinary or tavern, as early as 1670, and it is remarkable that a public house has
been kept there by his descendants ever since, till within a few years." This house was owned and
managed by John Howard and his direct descendants for a period of 151 years. John Howard
opened the tavern in 1670, and kept it 30 years, until his death in 1700. His oldest son, John, then
became proprietor, conducting it 26 years, until 1726. His son, Maj. Edward, was proprietor from
that date to 1771, for 45 years. His son, Col. Edward, owned and conducted the house for 38 years,
from 1771 to 1809, when he d. Then his widow and son, Capt. Benjamin Beal Howard, kept the
house open 12 years, until 1821. The house was taken down in 1838. A list of the distinguished
guests of this tavern, could we know their names, would make exceeding interesting reading. Without
doubt, one of the early distinguished visitors was Mary (Chilton) Winslow, (the first lady who came
on shore from the Mayflower), who was grandmother of the wife of the second proprietor, John
Howard. An occasional guest was John Reed, D. D., who was a member of congress during
Washington's administration. Oakes Angier, a young lawyer, Hon. William Baylies and Judge
Howard, were other prominent and frequent visitors. Lieut. Howard d. in 1700. His property was
appraised in October, the next year. It consisted of about 450 acres of land, and his estate was
valued at about 840 pounds. Following is a copy of the division of his estate and of that of his widow,
who d. before 1703.

(*)John Howard had a son Ephraim, who loved Mary Keith, daughter of the minister,
James Keith, who violently opposed the match. In spite of him, they were
married, and the displeased Keith preached a sermon from the text (Hosea iv: 17):
"Ephraim is joined to his idols, let him alone." Later, on becoming reconciled to
his son-in-law, he made proper amends by taking as his text (Jeremiah xxxi: 20):
"Is Ephraim my dear son, is he a pleasant child? for since I spake against him I
do earnestly remember him still." They were ancestors of Hon. Ruel Williams of
Augusta, Me.

Samuel, the eldest son of Samuel, settled in the parish of East Bridgewater as early as 1660. He was one of the origional landed proprietors of the town and held many offices of trust and honor from the people. He was town clerk from 1683 to 1702, was a member of the Legislature in 1693, was in many of the battles with the Indians in those times, and once, while on a march to join Capt. Church with twenty of his neighbors, took seventeen prisoners after a desperate conflict. The records of the town still bear witness to his character for accuracy and research. He was a deacon of the church and bore a good character to his death. He married Sarah, daughter of George Partridge of Duxbury; she was born in 1639. They had Samuel, 1660; Essiel, 1663; Methitable, 1665; Sarah, 1667; Bethiah, 1669; Nathaniel, 1672; Ebenezer, 16674; Josiah, 1677; Elisha, 1679; Nehemiah, 1681. He died in 1703, aged 71.

16 Notes for SAMUEL ALLEN, SR.:The settlement [of East Bridgewater] began early. Samuel Allen, Jr.[Sr.], the first settler, is said to have been here by 1660. He built his house on the east side of the Matfield, near where the Bridgewater Branch Railroad crosses it to-day, on land of the late John Lane. (Benjamin W. Harris, The Bridgewater Book (Published by George H. Ellis, Boston, Ma., 1899)

Samuel Allen, Jr., owned land extending north from Matfield River, including the eastern part of the
present village, the old cemetery, and the Common. (Benjamin W. Harris, The Bridgewater Book
(Published by George H. Ellis, Boston, Ma., 1899))

Second Town Clerk of Bridgewater to whom we are much indebted for the fullness and perfection of

Church with twenty of his neighbors, took seventeen prisoners after a desperate conflict. (NEHG

which Samuel Allen was one (Sighted by Emily Erickson, July 1999).

22 gives birth year as 1639, I had 1638/9.

There was a Partridge family who were influencial in early New Hampshire; one was colonial govenor. Could Sarah be of this family? NH My reason for thinking this is that another prominent family was Whitmore; one of these was govenor too. Sarah's mother-in-law was named Whitmore.

Robert Carver, born about 1594, came to Green's Harbor in the Duxbury-
Marshfield area, with wife Christian and son John in 1638 and was there
granted 20 acres; acquired more land from time to time across the river in
Marshfield. where he died and was buried in April 1680, aged 86 (The
Mayflower Descendant, vol. 2. p. 181. July 1900), His wife, Christian, was
buried 23 July 1658 (THE REGISTER. vol 8. p. 192. April 1854).
He left no will, but soon after the death of his son John, presumably his only
child, he made an agreement with John's Widow, 27 June 1679, by which he was
to live with her during the rest of his life and in return she and the children were
to have the improvement of his whole estate until her eldest son William was
twenty-one; then one half was to be set off to William who at his mothers death,
was to have the other half (his brother John8 having been brought up and provided
for by his maternal grandfather, William1 Ford
(Plymouth County deed, vol, 2, p. 70. recorded 3 April 1697)).
John2 was born in England about 1636-7; died in Marshfield 23 June 1679
being 42 years old (The Mayflower Descendant, vol 2. p. 181, July 1900);
married 4 Nov. 1658 Millicent2 Ford (ibid, vol 2, p. 110. April 1900). daughter
of William Ford and wife Hannah (who was probably an Eames). No record of
her death has been found; however, she died before 4 May 1696, the date of
Bristol County deed (vol. 2, p. 189, in Taunton. Mass.) in which she is called
"deceased."
She married secondly, 9 March, 1680/1, as his second wife, Thomas Drake
of Weymouth (The Mayflower Descendant vol 3, p. 42. January 1901). He died
in Weymouth shortly before 30 Aug. 1692, the date of the inventory of his estate
(Suffolk Probate records. vol. 13, p. 54, Boston).
John Carver and Millicent had at least nine children. but only five birth records
have come to light: William, 6 Sept. 1659; John, about 1661; Elizabeth, 4 March
1662-3; Robert about 1665; Eleazer about 1667-8; David. about 1669; Mercy,
11 Feb. 1672-3; Anna, 20 Feb, 1675; Mehitable (? say 1677), died 19 April 1679,
(The writer could find no authentic record for a daughter named Rebecca and
believes she should be omitted.) Of these children, Mehitable died two months
before her father, thus accounting for the eight children mentioned, but not named
by the Court in the settlement of his estate 3 July 1679; and Robert2 died before
1696. William married twice and remained on the homestead; John married and
removed to Plymouth {for details see the Carver genealogy in THE REGISTER,
vol, 88. p. 215, July 1934). The rest of the children being sixteen or under removed
to Weymouth with their mother where they all married into Weymouth families
or others in that vicinity. Two of these, Eleazer3 and Anna,3 late in life appear in
South Bridgewater (Titticut) where they were near neighbors of ]oseph3 Pratt.
Our main interest is in the daughter Anna or Ann.

William Brett's wife was probably daughter of William and Alice (Booth)
Ford, who were married in England, 1601. Alice was daughter of William
and Elizabeth Warburton (daughter of Sir John Warburton) Booth, being
their sixth child. Andrew Ford of Weymouth may have been a son of
William and Alice and brother to Margaret Brett. William Ford of Marshfield
in his will mentions his daughter Margaret, who might have been Margaret
Brett, but he does not name her husband, except to say that if she dies before
he does, her twenty pounds which he gives her is to go to her sister Millicent.
He, more probably, was brother to Margaret and Andrew.

Notes for ABIAH PIERCE:
Abiah's identity has long puzzled researchers. Mrs. Barclay eliminated
many possible Abiahs from surrounding towns and concluded after reading
deeds and court records of the Ford family, their associates and
relatives, that she was probably Abia Pierce, daughter of Capt. Michael
Pierce of Hingham and Scituate and his first wife Persis Eames. In the
families associated with the Fords the only "Abia" was in the Pierce
family. There is no proof of what became of Abia Pierce, who was living
at the time of her father's will, January 15, 1675, and was of the right
age to have been the wife of Andrew Ford. She is mentioned twice in the
Plymouth Records, first in the will of a Neighbor, Esther Woodfield, May
27, 1672, secondly in her father's will when she was still unmarried.
Andrew's daughter Abia, who married James Bearse, named a son Miall,
possibly after her grandfather Capt. Michael Pierce.
