                                                           |        |   m.1686   The following excerpts from Rev. Thacher's journal are printed in The History of Milton: "Dec 16 [1684] - Went and solemnly discoursed with Jane Vose giving her much good counsel. [Dec] 26. This morning Sargent Badcock & Peter Lion were at my house to get me to go & treat with Sargent Vose about consenting to Peters marrying his daughter. [Dec] 30.  Treated with Sargent Vose about giving his consent that P. Lion should marry his daughter Jane, but his answer was plainly negative Jan 3. 1685.  I went with Sargent Badcock to treat with Jane Vose & to acquaint that her father could not consent, whereupon we labored abundantly to take off her affections &c - Jan. 6.  Went to Sargent Badcocks, he & I labored much with Peter Lion & Jane Vose." Such rich anecdotes of one's ancestors are rare, so finding them is like finding treasure! Clearly Jane (age 19) and Peter (age 21) were smitten, but what is striking in the Reverend's account is the absence of Peter's father and the refusal of Jane's father to consent. To proceed without parental consent would be unthinkable, but clearly the tide eventually changed -- Jane and Peter married in 1686.  From 1705 to 1712 they kept a tavern at Canton.

Came from Eng in 1635 on the "Defence" commanded by T.homas B.ostacke of London , in October, 1635 with Roger H.arlakenden and S.hepard. H.arlakenden was a prominent man in Cambridge . Thomas S.hepard became their pastor. among the reasons which swayed him to come to New England , Mr. Sh.epard in his Autobiography gives the following: "Divers people in Old England of my dear friends desired me to go to New England there to live together, and I saw divers families of my Christian friends who were resolved thither to go with me. Accordingly in the beginning of the winter 1634 we started. (They embarked at Harwick.) We were driven back by stress of weather and the voyage was abandoned. But about August 10, 1635 , we again embarked in the ship 'Defence' and so the Lord after many sad storms and wearisome days and many longings to see the shore brought us to the sight of it upon October 2, 1635 [after 54 days at sea], and upon Oct. 3, we landed at Boston."

                                        |                                   |Michael Metcalf  b.17 Jun 1587 Tatterford, Norfolk, Eng  d.25 Mar 1654 Dedham MA  A weaver, a tapestry maker, said to have employed a hundred men. "From the relig. tyranny" exercised a by Wren, then Bp. of Norwich, he felt forced to esc. even at the expense of separ. from his fam. for a time, and emb. at London, 17 Sept. 1636, for N. E. but was sadly tormented by equal tempests on the water, and the ship at Christmas put back to Plymouth; and so far was this a happiness that in Apr. foll. he had license for the whole. fam. to come; only 8 ch. are ment. in the custom-ho. docum. -Savage  The English records confirm the statement of Michael Metcalf as to his reasons for leaving England. Before he came to America he wrote a long letter "to all true professors of Christ's Gospel within the City of Norwich." At that time he was absent from home, hiding from the persecution of the church. After coming to America he wrote the following, which is printed with the other in the "Metcalf Genealogy" of 1898: "I was persecuted in the land of my fathers' sepulchres for not bowing at the name of Jesus and observing the ceremonies inforced upon me at the instance of Bishop Wren of Norwich, and his Chancellor Dr. Corbet, whose violent measures troubled me in the Bishop's court, and returned me into the High Commissioner's Court. Suffering many times for the cause of religion, I was forced for the sake of the liberty of my conscience to flee from my wife and children to go into New England; taking ship for the voyage at London, I7th Sept., 1636, and being by tempests tossed up and down the seas till the Christmas following; and then veering about to Plymouth in Old England. Leaving the ship I went down to Yarmouth, in Co. Norfolk, whence I finally shipped myself and family to come to New England; sailed April 15, 1637, and arrived three days before Midsummer with my wife, nine children, and a servant, T.homas C.omberbach, aged 16." In the passenger list of the "John and Dorothy," as examined for April 8, ' 1637, only eight children are mentioned, so it is likely that his son Joseph came two years before he did. -Cutter's "New England Families..."

In signing his will, Thomas spelled his name " ffoxe." Cradock never came to New England; he depended on agents to manage his interests. Sometimes his workers were an unruly lot. Late in the summer of 1630, one of them, Austen Bratcher (or Augustine Bradshaw) was found dead on the Medford farm. The inquest showed that his death had been caused by blows given by Walter Palmer. Palmer was charged with murder, but the court acquitted him. This did not satisfy another worker on the farm, Thomas Fox, who declared that the court had been bribed. Angered, the court ordered Fox whipped, and he was.

         |                             |                |        |        | Peter Folger  b.@1617 Eng  d. @1690 Nantucket MA  A Quaker; were Quakers persecuted during the late 1650s and 1660s. As early as 1656, the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony attempted to suppress the sect by imprisoning English Quakers arriving in Boston. In response to growing conversions, the court enacted numerous laws forbidding attendance of “Quaking” meetings and housing of visiting Friends. The penalties imposed on Quakers and their allies became increasingly brutal and included fines, whipping, mutilation, banishment, and hanging.  A translator: From Nathaniel Philbrick's Mayflower (Viking books, 2006): in 1665, Pokanoket sachem Philip (aka King Philip) rowed the 65 miles to Nantucket to discipline (execute) native John Gibbs for speaking the name of Philip's dead father (Massasoit). At the time, 1,500 members of the Pokanoket nation lived on Nantucket, along with 100 English (including Peter and Mary Folger). "As the sachem prepared to execute the transgressor, some members of the English community offered to pay for his release. Gibbs was a special favorite of the island's interpreter, Peter Folger... Philip named a price, but the English were unable to meet it. A standoff ensued as Philip refused to lessen his offer." Even though Phillip ought to have been in control of the situation, he lived 65 miles away on the mainlain, while the Nantucket community thrived on the island on which they outnumbered the English by more than 10 to one. Philip backed down and left without delivering his punishment. Keep in mind that the total Pokanoket nation at this time numbered roughly 5000 (having been decimated by years of the Old World's smallpox and plague for which they were armed with no natural defenses), and that by this one act 1500 members (30% of Philip's nation) summarily dismissed Philip from the island. As Philbrick says: "With the outbreak of [the so-called King Philip's] war a decade later, the Indians of Nantucket became one of the first Native groups in his authority to disown Philip... the voyage to Nantucket had been a disaster."

         |                             |                |        |        | Mary Morrill  b.  d.@1704 Nantucket MA  Peter Folger came with his father, John Folger, from Norwich, Norfolk Co., England in 1635 in the "Abigail". He settled in Dedham & Waterford, MA, in 1641, and went to Martha's Vineyard with Thomas Mayhew, Governor of MA. He also was one of the few settlers who worked equally hard at learning the Wampanoag language. He moved about 1663 to Nantucket. Cotton Mather speaks of him "as a pious and learned Englishman" who had been named as the interpreter for Tristram Coffin Senior when he first visited Nantucket. Mary Morrill came on the same ship as a Peter, and was a ward or servant of Rev. Hugh Peters of Salem, MA (who returned to Eng in 1641 and became army chaplain in the Parliamentary forces.  It is said she so widened out in later years, that she had to sit in a special chair which she carried with her whenever she went visiting neighbors.

He had matriculated from St. Catherine's College of Cambridge University, where he had specialized in mathematics, but had left before obtaining a degree because he refused to subscribe to the 39 articles of the established faith. No doubt he was actively engaged in preaching in England. Persecuted as a Puritan, John fled with other Shermans and sailed from England in the "Elizabeth", arrived in America in 1635 and went to Watertown. He soon moved to New Haven Colony where he was a magistrate several years. During the years 1674, 1676 and 1677, he compiled and published an Almanack of Coelestial Motions. One of the New World's early philomaths, now rarely remembered, the Reverend Sherman made significant contributions to the teaching of mathematics and to the popularization of the sciences.

He held many other offices such as: assessor or appraiser of houses, cattle, etc., "for the purpose of taxing"; special officer to prevent drunkenness among indians. He purchased, of the General Court, the right to carry on the fur trade in the Concord area for the sum of five pounds. He traded with the Indians in furs. He died intestate. His male heirs—three sons and son-in-law T.imothy W.heeler—presented an inventory of the estate for probate 16 Jun 1667, and the following day signed an agreement for division of the estate. Joshua, as eldest son, was to have a double portion, the usual custom.

D.olittle's regiment. He lived in Fitchburg and marched to Winter Hill near Charlestown during the siege of Boston. #2 He again enlisted in Sept 1776 for 2 months in Capt Jonathan W.oods' militia company of Col C.onverse's regimetn. He marched to Dobb's Ferry, near West Point, passing through New Haven, and made several marches from there, one to Fairfield, CT, one toward New York. He recalled that on one occasion they shot a cannon at a vessel at anchor off Dobb's Ferry and drove it down river.  #3 In Sept 1777 he served in Capt. T.hurlo's company of Fitchburg, serving 30 days at the taking of Burgoyne; he was posted first at Batterskill and after at Ft. Edward to prevent the British crossing the Hudson. #4 In July 1780 he again enlisted for 3 months in Capt Boutell's company in Col R.and's regiment. He marched through Worcester, Hartford, and Fairfield to West Point. Benedict Arnold's treason was discovered during this term of service, which was what enabled him to fix the year as 1780. He saw Gen. W.ashington at West Point shortly after Arnold's treason and he was on guard when Gen W.ashington rode up. #5 He also served a few months near the close of the war (he could not recall the year) at Castle William in Boston harbor in Joshua M.artin's company of Lunenburg in Col J.ones' regiment. There were continental troops on the island who were quartered in the fort and militia like himself were outside in the barracks. After a temporary residence in Ashby MA, he removed to Ashburnham very soon after his last term of service, before 1787. [History of Ashburnham]

He married in England before emigrating to America. He came to Newbury in 1641, and settled in Haverhill early in the spring of 1642...." Chase claims Davis had only one son and no other offspring, so this attribute to Joanna Davis may be incorrect. On 3 May 1655, the town voted that "Thomas Davis shall have 3 pounds allowed him by the twone, fo to ground-pin and dawb [the meeting house]... provided that Thomas Davis provide the stones and clay for the underpinnings..."

She and Jonathan had ten more children. You can read about by clicking here, but I've pasted an excerpt here: "They took her first to Ossipee Lake, where she remained until spring, when they went on to the “Ox Bow” in Newbury, Vt.  Here they planted corn and remained until it was in the second hoeing, when they were visited by another party of Indians, who probably informed them that some scouting party was in search of them, for the next day they hastily packed up and left for Canada... The tribe were encamped at Three Rivers in Canada, near to a French settlement, and soon after their arrival there, a French woman became interested in Hannah, seeing she was a captive, and was very kind to her, and often gave her salt to season her food. She finally proposed that Mrs. Eastman make her escape and offered to secrete her from the Indians. Mrs. Eastman gladly accepted the offer, but was obliged to keep out of sight, lest she be again captured... For nearly three years she had been held captive, but she well knew that if Jonathan were living he would search for her, but she fully understood how small his chance was of finding her. One day she stood beside her chamber window, thinking deeply on her plan of escape, when her attention was attracted to a man who was passing the house... He was fully six feet four inches in height... But his unusual height, broad shoulders, and erect carriage seemed strangely familiar. She was almost certain that is was her husband that was passing. She called to him by name, “Jonathan,” when he stopped and looked around, but seeing no one, passed on. She called again, but this time he did not hear. She flew downstairs and informed the French woman, who immediately sent a little girl to call him back. The child could speak no English, but by motions and pulling his coat she persuaded him to return with her. There were many changes in Hannah’s appearance, caused by exposure and hardship, and at first Jonathan did not recognize her, but it was the happiest moment of his life when he again clasped her in his arms. It was the third time he had passed the house while searching for her. He at once redeemed his wife, and they started back to Massachusetts. Their journey was of long duration, for they had to walk the entire distance, but despite its necessary hardships the journey was a delightful one, and left in their minds impressions destined to bear future fruit."

Will made 18 Jun 1662, proved 14 Oct 1662. By 1640, Abraham becomes a founding member of the Puritan plantation at Salisbury, Massachusetts. He was granted a house-lot on the "Green." By 1642, he and Henry Saywood were granted 60 acres to build a corn mill. We do not know for sure when Abraham Morrill emigrated to New England, however he most likely came on the ship Lyon in 1632 with his older brother Isaac. We think he was young because he did not sign the Oath of Allegiance to the King, and only adult men were required to sign the Oath. We first find Abraham living alone in Cambridge, Massachusetts, paying taxes in 1634. Being a young man in 1632 and a property owner in 1635 puts his birth year at around 1615.

Andrew Gardner, which consisted of about sixty men, who were all lost in the expedition except the petitioner Newell." The petition prayed that "in consideration of the misfortunes arisen to the families of the deceased, as well as their voluntarily entering into the publick service and performances therein, the petitioners and their associates may obtain a grant of six miles square of land for a township." The petition was referred to the Committee for Lands. On June 4, 1736, the House approved a grant to the petitioners of six miles square of land on the New Hampshire line, immediately east of Northfield; and the order was confirmed on June 15, 1736. The grant was henceforth known as Gardner's Canada, until in 1763 it was incorporated as the town of Warwick, Massachusetts.
