(the children are documented in various records but the complete list is from DAR Record #77480.)
Thomas Woodward, Sr., is well documented in Philadelphia. In 1798 he was living at 236 So. Second Street, in 1802 at 210 Spruce Street, in 1803, 1804, & 1805 at the corner of Pine & 3rd Streets. His occupation is given as Sea Captain in each instance. There are also many maritime records for him from 1798 to 1804 with lists of crews: 1798 Master of Brig Maria for Havana, same brig in 1799 & 1800 for LaGuyra, 1802 ship Wilmington for Lisbon and in 1804 Ship Wilmington for Rotterdam. A notice in "Boulson's American Daily Advertiser," published 25 February 1807, reported his death: Captain Woodward died in the Pongus, Africa in November last. There was also a notice on 3 December 1792 that Captain Thomas Woodward had married Miss Margaret Houston 24 October 1792 at the Second Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia.
Captain Thomas Woodward served in the Revolutionary War. In "Mariners of the American Revolution" by Marion Kaminkow: Woodward, Thomas, Mariner, captured on Little Porgey (or Pegey) committed to Old Mill Prison was there April & January 1782. Taught navigation to other prisoners while there."
There are several references that make the tie between Captain Thomas Woodward of Philadelphia and Thomas Woodward of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Kentucky and Preble County, Ohio. His tombstone indicates he was born at sea. "Bowen's History" 1902, states "he was first of his line not to follow the sea." And he was called "Captain" sometimes too, although he never officially earned the title. He is known to have received a large inheritance shortly after the death of Captain Thomas Woodward of Pennsylvania. Attempts to discover a will for Captain Thomas Woodward have not been successful. Administration #138 in 1807 and #115 in 1809 for Thomas Woodward are indexed in Philadelphia but both files are missing.
We have added a (?) to the "born at sea" given above even though that information is on his tombstone. Dee Cooper, whose husband is a descendant, located a marriage for Thomas Woodward, Sr. and Mary Gilbert, January 14, 1750 in the Parish church of Stevenage in Hertford County, England. Then there are christenings for Thomas Jr., September 19, 1756 and his known sister Sarah on March 3, 1754, as children of Thomas and Mary in the Parish of St. Mary the Virgin, Little Wymondley, Hertford County. Since these are christening records and not birth records, and since Thomas Sr. led a life on the sea it would still be possible for Thomas Jr. to have been born at sea (if Thomas Sr.'s family accompanied him at sea) and then for a christening to take place in England. Since Thomas's sister was older it is more improbable that the family accompanied Thomas Sr. on sea voyages and the "born at sea" inscribed on the tombstone may simply be from a charming family myth.
Thomas Woodward, Jr. served in the Revolutionary War. "Bowen's History" 1902, calls him a Revolutionary hero. He had learned shoemaking and worked at his trade in Philadelphia. He served in Chester County, Pennsylvania, militia in Colonel Patterson Bell's regiment (verified in Pennsylvania archives). His DAR papers state he was in Captain George Garst's Company. He was captured at Germantown October 4, 1777, but escaped from a rail pen jail. There is family lore that Thomas got involved in Chester County because he visited his brother Jacob there who was a regular soldier in the war. Thomas fought at the Battle of Brandywine September 11, 1777, which would have been directly in the area where the Starr family lived. We know from records of Quaker sufferings that families living in the area were required to billet soldiers regardless of pacifist feelings. This is perhaps how Thomas and Rachel met. There was some strong connection there as a T. Woodward owned land directly adjacent to James Starr after the war.
Rachel Starr Woodward received her five pound inheritance from her father about 1786 and it was about this time that the family went to Virginia. Son Asahel's birth in Rockingham County, Virginia, in 1791, is documented in "Hazzard's Military History of Henry County, Indiana" which was written by Asahel's grandson.
"Bowen's History" continues that Thomas and family moved to Kentucky about 1802 and lived in Woodford County at Versailles but lived his later years in or near Eaton, Preble County, Ohio. Thomas actually purchased land in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on 7/23/1800. On the same date land was purchased there by Abel Griffith, the Reverend of the 7th Day Baptist Church in Newlin Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. This might have been the "Baptist teacher" who married Thomas & Rachel in 1779, since ministers often led entire congregations westward for settlement, but if so their place of marriage was probably Chester County and not Philadelphia.
Thomas Woodward is found in the tax lists for Bourbon County from 1800 through 1807. Son Jacob was listed separately in 1806 indicating he had probably turned 21. A Jacob Woodward is found in the tax lists in the 1790's. This may have been Thomas's brother and may have been why Thomas moved to Kentucky.
David Purviance, elder at Cane Ridge Church in Paris, Bourbon County, Kentucky, went to Ohio in 1807 or 1808 and took part of his flock with him. This probably included the Woodwards as Purviance was the minister who married Jacob's son Eli in Ohio. We know Thomas & Rachel were gone by 1809 as when their daughter Polly married William Hickman in Kentucky, her parents were "out of the state."
From "Early Ohio Settlers- Southwest Ohio 1800-1840": Thomas Woodward purchased Sec 4, Township 7, Range 2 in Preble County on 15 April 1812. The same notation is made for April 12, 1814 (these may have been tax lists and not purchases). Thomas made a two year payment on his land entered in Preble County, Ohio, and two years later also made a double payment. An affidavit from his son Eli in a lawsuit in 1850 in Preble County, says his father received and spent a considerable inheritance. The money was probably spent on the extra land payments.
Thomas Woodward wrote his will in Preble County on October 11, 1821. "In the name of God amen. I Thomas Woodward of the County of Preble and the state of Ohio, being weak in body but of sound mind and memory, do make this my last Will and Testimony in manner following to wit: I do give to my wife Rachel all the profits arising from the plantation on which I now live, the stock of every kind, household furniture and farming utensils during her life, except one Buroe, which I do give to my granddaughter Polly Woodward, at the death of her grandmother, to be deposited in the hands of my son Eli until she comes of age. I do give my sons Eli, Nathan and Mahlon, at the death of my wife, the part of said plantation that lies on the east side of fourmile creek, to be equally divided amonst them. I do give to my son Mahlon the part of said plantation that lies on the west side of fourmile, and one hundred dollars - I do give to my son Nathan one quarter section of land that I own in the Indiana State. At the death of my wife, I do give the stock of every kind, and moveable property to my sons Nathan & Mahlon, except fifty dollars that I give to my son Asahel, and sixteen dollars I do give to my granddaughter Rachel Hickman, which is to be made out of apart of said property.
I do appoint my sons Asahel & Eli to execute this, my last Will and also to take the full guardianship over my sons Nathan & Mahlon, and the full management of their property accompanied with my sincere wish that you will not see them changed in any respect if they or either of them have any lawful issue, I allow them to inherit their estate, and if not, I allow said estate to be equally divided amongst all the grandchildren that I may have at that time, in witness whereof, I here unto set my hand and seal this eleventh day of October, in the year of our Lord 1821 (seal). I do not allow any of the property left in the hands of my sons Asahel & Eli, and desired for the use of Nathan & Mahlon, to be taken for military fines.
/s/Thomas Woodward X his mark (seal)
Test: Audley Taylor and Joseph Smith"
A law suit was filed in Preble County Ohio in September 1850 which contains much genealogical information about the Thomas Woodward Family. The participants in the law suit were Isaac & Rebecca Clawson; George and Rachel Hickman; Stephen and Thirza McWhinney; Evan, Levi, and Eli Woodward vs. Asahel and Eli Woodward; Voemma and Samuel Hazzard; Thomas B., Pyrus, and Franklin Woodward; Andrew G. Clawson; Fidellia and William Wayman; James and Rachel Clawson; Nathan & Assa Clawson; Ezrelda, Josiah, George K., Bethena and Ann Woodward. The deceased, Thomas Woodward was listed as the grandfather of the petitioners. The old document is very hard to read but the gist of it is that Thomas, "in his lifetime was seized and possessed in fee simple of large real estate and was also possessed of a large amount of personal estate." The document then quotes the will. Apparently the grandchildren were attempting to obtain a share of the estate. John Laird, a Clawson descendant, also sent us an abstract of the filing of this court case on June 7, 1849. This tells us still more about the relationships: Nathan woodward died in 1832 without issue; Asahel Woodward of Henry County, Indiana, his children - Vienna, wife of Samuel Hazzard, Thomas B. Woodward, Pyrus Woodward, Franklin Woodward, all of Henry County, Indiana; Phebe wife of Josiah Clawson and hr children - Andrew G. Clawson, Delaware County, Indiana, Fidelia, wife of William Wayman, James Clawson, Rachel Clawson, Nathan D. Clawson, and Asa G. Clawson, all of Henry County, Indiana; Eli Woodward of Warren County, Indiana, his children - Ezrquelda, Melissa, Josiah, George W., Bethena, and Ann Woodward, all of Warren County, Indiana. The grandchildren whose parentage is not given above are children of Jacob and Margaret McCormick Woodward: Rachel Hickman (b. abt. 1807), Thirza McWhinney (b. abt. 1809), Evan (born abt. 1810), Levi (born abot 1814), and Eli Woodward.
From County histories we have extracted the following information on Pyrrhus Woodward, son of Asahel and Catherine Hollett Woodward: Pyrrhus Woodward, born 8/1/1822, near New Castle, Henry County, Indiana; married 1/7/1850 in Wayne County, Indiana, Mary E. Hawkins, daughter of Isabel M. and William Hawkins. Pyrrhus died 12/27/1898 in Henry County, Indiana. Mary was born 10/20/1825 and died 1/17/1899 in Henry County, Indiana. Children were Cordelia J. Woodward; Isabel Woodward Springer; George W. Woodward; Leonora Woodward m. John Hoham; and Charles F. Woodward.

ames Woodward settled and married Mary Walker in 1728 in Hanborough, Oxfordshire, England. Hanborough is a village located within a few miles of the Blenheim Palace. Most of James' many descendents remained in Hanborough until the late 1800s. However, those descendents of James who have taken a serious interest in their genealogies, have failed so far to pinpoint his origins. Blenheim Palace was constructed in the early 1700s following the granting of the Royal Manor of Woodstock by Queen Anne to the Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill--from whom Winston descended, following the Duke's success over the French-led forces in 1704 near the small village of Blenheim on the Danube. Construction of the Palace was completed in 1722. James Woodward was probably drawn into the area to help in the development or upkeep of the Palace and its gardens--he lived in a cottage that was owned by the estate. Searching the archives of the Palace to unearth possible information on James is planned. Meanwhile, exploration of genetic information is seen as an alternate line of research--the intent being to identify genetic connections to other Woodward family groups whose origins are English, and so identify possible origins for our James.

Hi,
I wonder if SKS can help me.
I'm searching for any information on a Church that was destroyed by fire
with all records lost sometime after the late 1890's. The area is around
the centre of Essex, eg. Boreham, Hatfield Peverel, Langford to Witham.
After the fire the Church was bulldozed and the land is now part of a
highway. The Church was in a town/village and there was a dam close by.
Where would I obtain this information? Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Coaley Parish Registers

EXTRACTS of
BIRTHS, MARRIAGES & DEATHS
Transcript taken from :GLOUCESTERSHIRE NOTES AND QUERIES, VOL. IV, 1890.
Edited by REV. BEAVER H. BLACKER, M. A. Published in 1890. London, England.
Transcribed by Brenda Pickard (Starweaver) http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Hills/2100/index.htm
The registers of the parish of Coaley commence in the year 1581, but the first volume which extends from that year until 1738, is extremely irregular, and in many cases badly written. Evidently the entries were often made by the incompetent hand of a parish clerk. Curiously enough, the period during which the register was best kept was that from 1650 to 1660, and the parish was clearly very fortunate at that time in obtaining the services of a competent registrar. Except to genealogists, there are comparatively few entries of general interest, and most of them are given in the following extracts. We may draw attention to the reference to the baptism of Quakers and a few entries of excommunication and absolution thereupon in the last century. They were evidently for offences against morals.
In the succeeding extracts which include the period 1582-1812, all the entries which relate to the names of Browning, Harding, Clutterbuck, Trotman, Kingscote, Purnell, Vizard, are given. Save of the first two, few instances of any of them occur, which is somewhat remarkable; for two of them, Clutterbuck and Trotman, abound in the immediate neighbourhood; indeed, as our readers are aware, the Trotmans simply swarm in the adjoining parish of Cam. All through the registers are numerous entries of the families of Cam and Mabbett, who are still well-known in this district, and are of considerable antiquity, the former taking their name from the adjoining parish of Cam. Other names which are found more or less frequently, are Veizey, Pegler, Drinkwater, Sherwood, Longden, Oatridge, Gunter and Ginter, Dangerfield, Essington and Estington, Washburn, Seliman and Jelliman, Longstreth and Longstreet, Veribey, Flatcher, and Hulbro. Some of these names are obvious misspellings, or corruptions. The educational condition of the parish was certainly low, if we may judge from the marriage register of the latter half of the eighteenth century, for the majority perhaps of the entries are signed with marks. This was doubtless due to the isolated position of the parish in ancient times, for it lies off any of the main roads, and it always appears to have been chiefly if not entirely engaged in agricultural pursuits. For permission to make the following extracts we are indebted to the present vicar of Coaley, the Rev. W. J. Evans.

Oxford - Kidlington: Manors and other estates | British History Online
Text:
Henry d'Oilly, probably the second of that name (d. 1196), gave a chapel at FRIES to Oseney abbey, and c. 1200 Thomas of St. Valery added the adjoining house, a grant confirmed by Richard, earl of Cornwall, before 1235. (Footnote 3) That house, which lay in Yarnton parish, apparently passed from Oseney to Rewley abbey and descended thereafter with Rewley's Yarnton lands. (Footnote 4) Oseney abbey retained its Fries estate until the Dissolution when it was granted, with Water Eaton, to the bishopric of Oxford and then to William Bury. (Footnote 5) A later grant, by Elizabeth I in 1574 to Christopher Fenton and Bernard Gilpin of London, (Footnote 6) does not seem to have taken effect. Bury sold Fries in 1551-2 to George Owen of Godstow, (Footnote 7) but before 1570 the estate had passed to John Keate of Hagbourne (Berks.), who died that year; he was succeeded by his son John (d. 1618) and then by Leonard Keate (d. 1623). Leonard's heir was his daughter Mary who with her husband Anthony Libbe in 1648 surrendered Fries to Leonard's brother John Keate of Checkendon. (Footnote 8)
The descent of the estate in the next 120 years is obscure. Thomas Stapler was recorded at Fries in 1665 and, with Richard Hall, in 1674, but both may have been tenants. John Rowland seems to have owned the estate in 1760, (Footnote 9) but in 1783 Fries was among the lands settled on William Fuller of Salisbury and his wife Mary. (Footnote 10) He or another William Fuller held it in 1826, but by 1849 it had passed to Francis Fuller, who sold it in 1863 to Exeter College, the owners in 1983. (Footnote 11)

Sources for Stratford Family History
Church and Chapel Registers, Stratford-upon-Avon
Since the Registration Act of 1836 all particulars of births, marriages and deaths have been recorded at the General Registry Office in London and, for the South Warwickshire area, at the local Registrar's office (7 Rother Street, S/A: tel 293711). Before this date, local church and chapel registers are the main source for baptisms, marriages and burials, although even after 1836 it is often more convenient for the genealogist to abstract data from these records. The Records Office holds the following:

Census Records
From 1801 a national census has been taken every ten years and, from 1841, the returns provide information as to numbers in households and, for each individual, his or her age, sex, occupation, relationship to the head of the household and (from 1851) place of birth. The original census records are in the Public Record Office but xerox, microfilm or microfiche copies of the returns for the Borough of Stratford-upon-Avon and the Parish of Old Stratford are available for use here. The years held are 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901.

a local census of 1765 for the borough of Stratford, giving heads and size of households, and also place of legal settlement, often useful for establishing parish of origin: ref. ER 1/8, but an indexed photocopy is available in the Reading Room.
a rare local survival of the 1831 census, when the enumeration was the responsibility of the Overseers of the Poor, listing heads and sizes of household, with occupations, for the borough of Stratford-upon-Avon and the parish of Old Stratford: ref: BRT 8/274 & BRT 9/234, but an indexed photocopy is available in the Reading Room.
Local Census Holdings
Wills
Wills of Stratford people were generally proved in one of three places:
If the will dealt with property in more than one diocese, or if it was disputed, it would probably have been proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury. These wills are now deposited in the Public Record Office in London, but you can refer here to volumes of printed indexes to find out if wills you are trying to trace are located there. These at present cover the years 1383-1800.
If the will dealt with property in more than one parish it would probably have been proved in the Diocesan Court of Worcester. These wills are now deposited at the Worcester County Record Office but there are printed indexes for the years 1451-1652 which can be consulted here.
If the will dealt only with property in Stratford it would probably have been proved in the local Peculiar Court, and will be deposited here. The records comprise:
389 wills and administrations, 1685-1849, at DR 148/1
150 wills and inventories, 1559-1721, with a register of wills proved, 1658-1699, now forming part of the records of the Stratford Corporation.
Please ask for lists or indexes of these wills.
N.B. Most pre-1700 Stratford wills proved at Canterbury or Worcester are available at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in copy form. In addition, many probate and other office copies of wills survive in bundles of deeds and other collections. These can all be traced through the general person-name index.

Herbal Medicine in Shakespeare's England and John Hall
Text:
Herbal Medicine in Shakespeare's England
from Dr. John Hall's Case Studies
Dr. Michael Tierra L.AC., O.M.D.
Who was John Hall: A most renowned 16th century physician-herbalist, born approximately 1575 and died in 1635. He moved to Stratford upon Avon, forever to be renowned as the home of William Shakespeare and the internationally renowned Globe theater. Around 1600, he established himself as a doctor in Stratford and as we all know, in those days, doctor really meant professional, clinical herbalist. John Hall was intimately bound up with his community (Stratford at that time had a population of only 2000) as a physician, citizen and a son-in-law of Shakespeare. At the age of 32, he married the eldest of Shakespeare’s two daughters, Susanna who was then aged 24. Since Hall was only 11 years the junior of his celebrated father in law, married his most favored daughter and lived immediately next door as neighbors, with all the positive allusions to doctors and herbs throughout Shakespeare’s plays, it is reasonable to assume that the two had a close friendship.
Shakespeare’s "Pericles" was written in his last great creative phase around 1607 and around the time that Hall became a part of the Shakespeare family. In it he has a doctor character, Lord Cerimon who at one point states his creed of life as follows:
I hold it ever
Virtue and cunning were endowments greater
Than nobleness and riches. Careless heirs
May the two latter darken and expend,
But immortality attends the former,
Making a man a god. ‘Tis know I ever
Have studied physic, through which secret art,
By turning o’er authorities, I have
Together with my practice, made familiar
To me and to my aid the blest infusions
That dwells in vegetives, in metals, stones;
and I can speak of the disturbances
That Nature works, and of her cures;
which doth give me
A more content in course of true delight
Than to be thirsty after tottering honour ......
John Hall’s father, William Hall was a man of some means, owning land in various areas. He was a Protestant by religion and a physician by profession. He had a large library of books on "physicks" and alchemy. It is surmised that he was trained by an Italian astrologer and physician who believed the origin of life was connected with the stars. In any case, his son, John who because a staunch Christian Puritan, had much discord with his father. This is adjudged by the fact the in his will, the father bestowed the books on "physicks’ to John, but his books on astrology, astronomy and alchemy to his friend, Mathew Morris. The will specifically states that if John showed any interest in these subjects, Mr. Morris was to instruct John accordingly. As it turned out, Mathew Morris accompanied John to Stratford when they both moved to Stratford.
Medical practice during the Renaissance period was bound up with superstition, herb-doctoring and pure unabashed quackery. Considering the body of knowledge in his day, Hall evidences a high degree of therapeutic skill and care in his work. The names of specific diseases were not so well recognized at that time and so Hall reports cases in a complexity of signs and symptoms characteristic of the highest level of traditional herbalism. His therapeutic remedies consisted of various and elaborate prescriptions utilizing over one hundred separate botanicals. Hall’s therapeutic armamentarium was typical of normal medieval and Renaissance medical practice that used leeches, bloodletting, elaborate herbs, minerals, purges, laxatives and a physiology based upon the Hippocratic humoral concept.
Despite this, Hall manifested a considerable degree of independent thought and judgment that elevated his standards above the medical practice of the day. He may have been a follower of Dr. Jacques Pons (1538-1612) of Lyons, who wrote a dissertation dedicated to Henry IV on the current abuse of blood-letting.
In his cases, Hall shows a high degree of compassion and sensitivity to emotional and psychological factors. His cures reflect the complicated pharmacy of the day, a materia medica that would rival or certainly be comparable to a Traditional Chinese Medical pharmacy today. We find him prescribing offensive animal matter (bat dung which is particularly high in vitamin A), webs of spiders, powder of nut shells, excreta, dried windpipes of cocks, etc.
Scurvy, a common disease of the day because of the prevalent diet of salt meat, salt fish, few vegetables and limited seasonal fruits was described by Hall as "general lassitude, filthy yellow jaundice, pains in the loins, weakness of legs, frequent changes of urine, tumors of the gums, swelling of the fingers, sweating and wandering pains." He treated his scorbutic patients with a mixture of plant and vegetable juices made from water cress, brooklime, scurvy grass, all herbs rich in ascorbic acid. Sometimes he made these into a beer, flavored with sugar, cinnamon or juniper berries or an infusion. Hall’s treatment of scurvy was well in advance of his time and a hundred years before James Lind’s use of lime juice for scurvy had caused a similar cure to Hall’s.
Hall visited patients as far as forty miles from Stratford. Considering that horseback riding was the only means of transportation at the time, this evidenced quite a high level of commitment and care. On one occasion, Hall missed the Stratford council meeting and was duly fined because of choosing to answer the need of one of his patients.
Hall directed his son-in-law, Thomas Nash, to burn his manuscripts of dispose of them as he pleased. Apparently Nash and Susanna did not wish to burn them. A Dr. Cooke reports in the preface to the first edition of the "Select Observations" that in 1644 he was able to obtain two notebooks from Hall’s widow.
The notes were abbreviated in Latin, Cooke them to London to be evaluated by "an able doctor". The opinion was that the abbreviations would cause the translator considerable difficulty. Cooke assumed the task of translating Hall’s notes from the condensed Latin. He did this with the help of Hall’s apothecary, Richard Court, and in 1657 one of the notebooks appeared as "The Select Observations on English Bodies." Cooke’s judgment was vindicated by Dr. John Bird who stated unequivocally that the cases "were equal to the best published." The range of conditions reported in the Casebook were incredibly wide and some of extreme gravity and complexity. These included abortion, asthma, dropsy, sterility, cancer, dysmenorrhea, melancholy, empyema, worms, and jaundice to name only a few.
The reprint of the 2nd edition of Hall’s "Select Observations" was purchased by at Hall’s Croft (home) in Stratford a few years ago. It was published with introduction and historical commentaries by Harriet Joseph, in 1964 on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth. Harriet Joseph was Associate Professor of English Literature at Pace University, Westchester, New York.
The Since that time the manuscript passed through the hands of several collectors and now suitably kept in the British museum.
OBSERVATION XV
Mr. Hunt of Stock-green, aged about 46. Labouring of a grievous Scab and Itch, was thus helpt: prescription Fumitory, Borage, Bugloss, Scabious, Wormwood, of each a like quantity, as much as you please; draw out the juices, of which take boiling it in whey to the consumption of the whey, always scumming of it; after it is boiled suffer it to settle. Drink every day a good draught of it cold, with sugar. This is Syrup of Scabious by Johannes Anglici, and a secret by which he cured many of the Scab and which I have cured also.
Commentary: I have chosen this, one of the simplest of the 178 cases presented, first because I would like to learn more about John Hall and share a remarkable Western herbalist document, unique in my experience to the herbal literature and extremely valuable for those who can find the persistence and patience to overcome the quaint spellings, olde English and other charming antiquarian peculiarities, second because of its brevity; third, because it describes herbs and a treatment modality that are both highly informative and accessible to contemporary herbalists. Last but not least is my search for remedies to give to my beloved 8 month old Labrador who seems to have some kind of allergic dermatitis which may just respond to this 16th century herbal remedy. This is obviously a very important 16th century formula from which contemporary herbalists can derive a good deal of knowledge and benefit not only to their human patients but also for pets with skin allergies which is an extremely common problem.
Following is a description of each of the herbs used in the formula:
Fumitory Fumaria officinalis
N.O. Fumariaceae
Saturn owns this herb and presents it to the world as a cure for his own disease, and strengthener of the parts of the body he rules. If, by my astrological Judgment of diseases, from the decumbiture, you find Saturn author of the disease or if by direction from a nativity you fear a Saturnine disease approaching, you may be this herb prevent it in the one, and cure it in the other, and therefore it is fit you keep a syrup of it always by you. The juice or syrup made thereof, or the decoction made in whey by itself, with some other purging or opening herbs and roots to cause it to work the better (itself being but weak) is very effectual for the liver and spleen, opening the obstructions thereof, and clarifying the blood from saltish, choleric, and adult humours, which cause leprosy, scabs, tetters, and itches, and such like breakings-out of the skin; and, after the purgings, strengthens all the inward parts. It is also good against the yellow jaundice, eradicating it by urine, which it procures in abundance. The powder of the dried herb, given for some time together, cures melancholy, but the seed is strongest in operation for all the former diseases. The distilled water of the herb is also of good effect in the former diseases, and conduces much against the plague and pestilence, being taken with good treacle. The distilled water also, with a litter water and honey of roses, helps all the sores of the mouth or throat, being gargled often therewith. The juice dropped into the eyes, clears the sight, and takes away redness and other defects in them, although it procures some pain for the present, and causes tears. Dioscorides says, it hinders any sreth springing of hears on the eye-lids (after they are pulled away) if the eye-lids be anointed with the juice hereof with gum arabic dissolved therein. The juice of Fumitory and docks mingled with vinegar, and the places gently washed or wet therewith, cures all sorts of scabs, pimples, blotches, wheals, and pushes which rise on the face of hands, or any other parts of the body.
Commentary: This is a primary ancient herb for blood purification through liver detoxification. The name derives from the Latin "Fumu" which means smoke, and refers to the fact that this common European weed is irritating to the eyes when it is burned. It is a member of the poppy family which is particularly rich in alkaloids the major one in this family being fumarine. The irritant principle is fumaric acid.
Recent studies have shown that fumitory has remarkable effects on the bile ducts. It seems that a water infusion of the plant given intravenously increased bile flow where bile secretion was low prior to the injection. Conversely, if the gall bladder was hyperactive, bile flow was reduced. With no effect on a normal gallbladder. Thus it has a unique regulating effect on the bile system. French authors have coined this as an ‘amphicholeretic agent’. Contemporary clinical trials have confirmed the biliary activity of fumitory in the treatment of acute conditions such as biliary colic as well as chronic dyskinesia (pain that occurs with movement). It is especially effective of course for pain in the liver and chest. especially over the right epigastrium. It is specific for migraine and other related headaches caused by liver and gastrointestinal malfunction. Fumitory can be used to increase one’s tolerance of rich foods, to treat headaches, nausea and vomiting.
Its use in this formula points out the strategy of treating allergic dermatitis and other chronic skin disorders with an effective liver and bile regulating approach.
Borage Borago officinalis
N.O. boraginaceae
It is an herb of Jupiter, and under Leo. The leaves are accounted cordial, good to comfort the heart, and remove faintness and melancholy, and for that purpose the tops are frequently put into wine and cool tankards; by which light cold infusion, its virtues are completely obtained. A conserve of the flowers, with the flowers of bugloss, is good in white wine to bring down the menses. some make a syrup of the flowers, which is very good for coughs, short breaths, or to sweeten herb-teas for feeble, weak, and consumptive persons. distilled water of borage or Bugloss flowers, for their virtues are similar, are good for inflammations of the eyes; and, inwardly, may be given in fevers with safety.
Commentary Jupiter is hot and moist and Leo assigns it to diseases of the heart. The astrological assignment, however is not because it is because of the expansive quality that is associated to these signs and not their customary atmospheric properties. From its indications as a demulcent cooling agent for fevers and lung inflammations, it certainly could not be considered to be hot and moist.
Borage is specific as a cordial which according to Parkinson is used "to expel pensiveness and malanchollie." It has diuretic, demulcent and emollient properties. According to Grieve, it seems to contain potassium and calcium, combined with mineral acids. The fresh juice supplying 30 percent potassium and the mucilage a good amount of niter and sodium. It is from the presence of these saline qualities along with calcium that its benefit on the heart derives. Because of the presence of nitrate of potash, it will emit sparks with a slight explosive sound when burnt.
The saline constituents promotes kidney activity and helps it to filter and carry off toxins. The high amount of potassium, calcium and other salts is what makes this herb uniquely of benefit to the heart.
Bugloss (Garden bugloss) (Buglossum hortense) (Viper’s bugloss) Echium vulgare
N.O. Boraginaceae
It grows under the dominion of Jupiter in Leo; like Borage, is accounted cordial, and serviceable to raise the spirits, and are therefore good in hypochondriac, hysterical, and all disorders arising from lowness of spirits. The flowers are ranked among the cordial flowers. The leaves and roots are to Very good purpose used in putrid and pestilential fevers, to defend the heart, and help to resist and expel the poison, or the venom of other creatures; the seed is of the like effects: and the seed and leaves are good to increase milk in women’s breasts; the leaves, flowers, and seed, all, or any of them, are good to expel pensiveness and melancholy; it helps to clarify the blood, and mitigate heat in fevers. The juice made into a syrup, prevails much to all the purposes aforesaid, and is put with other cooling, opening, and cleansing herbs, to open obstructions, and help the yellow-jaundice; and, mixed with fumitory, to cool, cleanse, and temper the blood thereby; it helps the itch, ringworm’s, and tetters, or to either spreading scabs and sores. The flowers candied or made into a conserve, are helpful in the former cases, but are chiefly used as a cordial, and are good for those that are weak in long sickness, and to comfort the heart and spirits of those that are in consumption, or troubled with often swoonings, or passions of the heart: the distilled water is no less effectual to all the purposes aforesaid, and helps the redness and inflammations of the eyes, being washed therewith; the dried herb is never used, but the green; yet with ashes thereof, boiled in mead, or honied water, is available against the inflammations, and ulcers in the mouth or throat to gargle it therewith: the roots of Bugloss are effectual, being made into a licking electuary for the cough, and to condensate thick phlegm, and the rheumatic distillations upon the lungs.
Commentary Jupiter is by nature hot and moist. It is described in Grieve’s as diuretic, demulcent and pectoral. It has very similar to properties as borage. Both herbs seem to have beneficial effect on the emotions, heart and for sadness, melancholy and sadness. It is also highly regarded as an anti-poison herb which is what makes it particularly useful in this formula.
Scabious, Devil’s Bit
N.O. Compositae
Scabious of which Culpepper describes three varieties known at the time as Scabiosa Arvensis (Field scabious), S. succisa (Devil’s bit Scabious), Scabiosa columbaria (Lesser Field Scabious)
Only the properties of the last variety are described and one can only assume that all three are similar. He says it is different from the previous two in that it is smaller. He says there are actually many varieties of Scabious and that at least at that time it grew in dry fields and meadows around London, everywhere (imagine that!).
He says it is ruled by Mercury. Very effective for coughs, shortness of breath and all other diseases of the breast and lungs, ripening and digesting cold phlegm, and other tough humours, voiding them forth by coughing and spitting: it also ripens all sorts of inward ulcers and imposthumes, pleurisy also, if the decoction of the herb dry or green be made in wine, and drank for some time together. Four ounces of the clarified juice of Scabious taken in the morning fasting, with a dram of Mithridate or Benice treacle, frees the heart from any infection of pestilence, if after the taking of it, the party sweat two hours in bed, and this medicine be again and again repeated, if need require. The green herb bruised and applied to any carbuncle or plague-sore, is found by certain experience to dissolve and break it in three hours space. The same decoction also drank, helps the pains and stitches in the side. The decoction of the roots taken for forty days together, or a dram of the powder of them taken at a time in whey, does (as Matthiolus says), wonderfully help those that are troubled with running or spreading scabs, tetters, ringworms, yea, although the proceed from the venereal disease, which, he says, he tried by experience. The juice of decoction drank, helps, also scabs and breakings out of the itch, and the like. The juice also made up into an ointment and used, is effectual for the same purpose. The same also heals all inward wounds by the drying, cleaning, and healing quality therein: and a syrup made of the juice and sugar, is very effectual to all the purposes aforesaid, and so is the distilled water of the herb and flowers made in due season, especially to used when the green herb is not in force to be taken. The decoction of the herb and roots outwardly applied, does wonderfully help all forts of hard or cold swellings in any part of the body, is effectual for shrunk sinews and veins, and heals green wounds, old sores and samphire, cleanses the skin of the face, or other parts of the body, not only from freckles and pimples, but also from morphew and leprosy; sores, itch, and the like, used warm. The herb bruised and applied, does in a short time loosen and draw forth any splinter, broken bone, arrow-head, or other such thing, lying the flesh.
Commentary: Mercury is by nature cold and dry in the first and second degrees. According to Grieve, the name Devil’s bit comes from the appearance of the root which when fully grown, nearly to the thickness of a middle finger, ends so abruptly that it appears to have been mysteriously bitten off.
Gerard says:
"The greater part of the root seemeth to be bitten away; old fantastick charmers report that the divel did bite it for envie, because it is an herbe that hath so many good vertues and it is so beneficial to mankinde.’
Obviously from the above, scabious is expectorant, alterative, vulnerary and astringent. It is particularly effective for all skin problems as well as the lungs. It is an herb with closely synergistic properties to borage but with stronger purifying and detoxifying effects.
Wormwood (Artemisia vulgaris is common mugwort) while Artemisia absynthium is common wormwood)
It is a martial herb, under the dominion of Mars. This is generally believed to be the absynthium ponticum of the ancients, the best Wormwood being supposed to grow in Pontus, a country of the Lesser Asia. the tops of the plat are to be used fresh gathered; a very slight infusion of them is excellent for all disorders of the stomach, and will prevent sickness after meals, and create an appetite; but, it is made too strong, it will revolt and disgust the taste. The tops with the flowers on them, dried and powdered are good against agues, and have the same virtues with wormseed in killing worms: in fact, they are much better than the wormseed that is commonly sold in the shops, which is generally too much decayed. The juice of the large leaves of Wormwood, which grow from the root, before the stalk appears, is the best against the dropsy and jaundice, for it opens obstructions, and works powerfully by urine. It is good in all agues, for which it is given in decoction, or infusion, in water, ale, wine, or in the juice only; but its infusion in wine or ale (if disease will allow of malt liquors) is an easy, and as good a preparation as any. Its simple distilled water is good for little. There is little more in its salt obtained by incineration, than in any other lixivial salt. Its decoction, wine, extract, and both oils, are good, and its compound water not bad. Its juice is more water and detergent the herb more astringent, only the dried herb should be infused in wine or ale. The infusion, drank evening and morning for some time, helps hysterics, obstructions of the spleen, and weakness of the stomach. Its oil, taken on sugar, and somewhat drank after, kills worms, resists poison, and is good for the liver and jaundice. The use of the herb checks the head and eyes, like the leaves; hence the root should be accounted among the best stomachics. Oil of the seed, given from half a scruple to half a dram, in some liquor, or a spoonful of juice in some wine, taken before the fit comes on, and the person is put to bed, cures quotidians and quartans. In a looseness from eating too much fruit (after the use of rhubarb) wormwood wine is excellent. A woman raised spread, and maintained her reputation for the cure of a megrim, by only using a fomentation of the part, of green roots of wild cucumber sliced, and wormwood, of each alike, boiled in two parts water and strained, has been successfully applied to a spreading gangrene. Green wormwood, worn in the shoes, has ben found useful in cold distempers of the stomach. Its ashes, infused three hours in white wine, strained, and drank often, cures and anasarca. Whenever you have any great expectation from the use of Wormwood, always order the common sort, for the roman comes far short of it in virtue. That hot rheum which runs down from the eyes, and excoriates the skin of the cheeks, is cured by juice of wormwood beaten up with the white of an egg, and applied. A too habitual and free internal use of the herb dims the sight for some hours. Poultices of wormwood boiled in grease, barm, or wine, may be applied with good success to white swellings. Being boiled in lard, and laid o swellings of the tonsils and quinsy, is serviceable. a poultice of the soft leaves, beaten up with whites of eggs, is good in a strain; or if it is boiled in ale, and laid on; or a poultice of wheat-bran boiled in vinegar; or a tincture of dried roses in vinegar, used with wet clothes to the part. Its internal use is good in such diseases as come from a gross blood, or obstructions in the capillaries, or in viscidity’s, or phlegm, which line the insides of the stomach, bowels or vessels, or in too great a sharpness of the blood, by its opening obstructions, cleansing, bracing, and promoting perspiration and urine. It is admirable against surfeits. It not only cures pain of the stomach, weakness, indigestion, want of appetite, vomiting and loathing, but hard swellings of the belly. This, with rosemary, saffron, and turmeric root infused in rhenish wine, is a cure for the jaundice, and brings down the menses; or a decoction of it, broom tops, greater celandine, white horehound, lesser centaury, flowers of hypericon, barberry bark, turmeric, and madder roots, strained, and hog-lice wine added, is not ill in a jaundice. wormwood and vinegar are an antidote to the mischief of mushrooms and henbane, and to the biting of a shrew, and of the seafish called Draco marinus, or quaviver; mixed with honey, it takes away the blackness after falls, bruises, etc. All other wormwoods, the nearer the approach and taste to pleasant or palatable, they are so much the worse, for they are weaker, their use requires so much longer time, larger doses, and yet less success follows. The herb and pellitory of the wall boiled in water till soft, then strained, and a fomentation of the liquor used, and the herbs laid on after in a poultice, ease all outward pains; or the herb boiled in oil till almost the oil is wasted, strained, and anointed, cures the pain of the back, placed among woolen cloths, it prevents and destroys moths.
Commentary
Its assignment to Mars describes it as archetypically hot and dry to the 3rd and 4th degrees. The description of Wormwood (actually mugwort) reminds us of the power of the simplest of herbs. To paraphrase, "the better it tastes, the weaker and more ineffective it is".
Chinese medicine describes mugwort as bitter, acrid, warm, entering the Spleen, Liver and Kidney. It is used to warm the womb and stop bleeding, for prolonged menstrual bleeding and uterine bleeding caused by cold and deficiency.
It quiets the fetus, lower abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding as in threatened miscarriage and also for threatened infertility caused by a cold womb.
It disperses cold and relieves pain: for cold abdominal pain and menstrual pain.
The Chinese stated uses very much conform to Culpeppers description and uses. However, the primary Chinese use is concerned with menorrhagia and threatened miscarriage. The description of it entering the channels of the spleen, liver and Kidney encompass a much wider area all of which is expressed in Culpepper’s description above.
The fact that it is used for scab, itch and what we might call allergic dermatitis, suggests that it’s ability to speed up the formation and elimination of bile which is its liver activity together, increase urine output all this along with its blood circulating properties makes it particularly useful for treating chronic, acute skin disorders. This is a use not directly suggested by its Chinese description in Bensky.
Still more, it gets rid of worms and other parasites and is regarded by Culpepper as being one of the best herbs to take for this, better than wormseed.
Wormwood reminds us that there must always be a time of atonement (‘at one ment’) or reuniting with our true inner nature and that it is the bitter taste that engenders the physiological response of detachment from outer worldliness that is one of the primary causes of disease.

This is the John Hall who married Shakespeare's daughter. They had only girls, so the name did not carry on through them.

Arundel Borough, 1539-1835
[from Administrative History] At the election for the mayor in 1671 the Presbyterian faction tried to regain control of the corporation. They entered a presentment at the Court Leet that their own supporters should be burgesses and that John Pellett should be mayor. The existing mayor and burgesses withdrew from the court and John Pellett was duly elected mayor. There followed a legal dispute between the new mayor and burgesses and the ex-mayor, Richard Hall, in which the mayor and burgesses brought a bill into Chancery to oblige Richard Hall to deliver the seal, records and brooks belonging to the corporation, to them. The decision was in Richard Hall's favour and he was elected mayor in 1675 (12).
[from Administrative History] The legal case, mayor and burgesses vs. Hall, did not settle the question of how burgesses should be elected, but decided only on the narrow question of the surrender of corporate property. This was decided by a feigned action brought by Richard Hall against John Pellett in which the former affirmed that the mayor should be chosen out of the burgesses and that the burgesses should be chosen out of the inhabitants by the mayor and majority of burgesses. The decision was embodied in the exemplification of 12 February 1677 which re-affirmed the ancient custom of electing burgesses by the mayor and burgesses (13).

Hall's of Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire
RETURN TO HOME PAGE
Arms and Crest of the Hall's of Bradford: Arms, Sable, three poleaxes argent.; Crest, an arm embowed in armour proper, garnished or, holding a poleaxe argent. The poleaxe symbolizes readiness for the ordeal of battle and the defence of purpose through allegiance to the sovereign; loyalty, conviction, and unconquerable will A staff weapon used by Knights. The blade was an axe-head, usually balanced by a hammer-type head, and surmounted by a steel spike. Used from the fifteenth century for foot combats. The shaft was of ash other hardwood, mounted by an axe blade that had a forward point for thrusting and a thin projection on the back for piercing armour or pulling a horseman off balance. The poleaxe and halberd were specialized weapons for fighting armoured men-at-arms and penetrating knightly armour. It is said that pole in the name refers not to the staff, but to the Old English word poll which meant head. Betoken on one of dignity and repute.
At the website http://www.freshford.com/hall_estate.htm two Hall Pedigree's are shown from the book, Jones History of Bradford on Avon, 1907 stating, Halus Manor or the Manor of Bradford was an estate held by the Abbess of Shaftesbury as part of her manor of Bradford. The Hall family was prominent in Bradford from the 14th-18th century. William de Aule, wife Katherine, and son Thomas were there early in the reign of Edward II. In 1324 Reynold de le Sale of Bradford was granted land by a charter in which he referred to his brother Thomas, Rector of Portishead (Somerset). William, son of John de Aule, was presented in 1350 to the chapel of Barley in Bradford parish. Thomas atte Halle, alive in 1360, was succeeded by son Thomas of age in I373. The younger Thomas was alive in 1408 Alice, relict of Thomas Halle, died 1427, holding land in Bradford Leigh and South Wraxall of the Abbess of Shaftesbury. Alice, sister and heir of Peter Atford, of Atford. In 1420 Reynold Halle, who endowed a charity in the parish church of Bradford, was the eldest son of Alice and Thomas. He predeceased his mother, for her heir was son Thomas Hall, alive in I450. Nicholas, his son and heir died 1478 leaving to his son and heir, Henry, lands, houses, and mills in Bradford held of the Abbess of Shaftesbury. Henry died soon after his father, being omitted from the 1565 pedigree in the Herald's Visitation. The estates passed to Thomas, Henry's brother, who died 1515 seized of Hall's Manor of Bradford. Thomas was succeeded by son William, who died in 1550. Leland, in 1542, noted that William Hall lived 'in a pretty stone house at the east end of the town' and that he was 'a man of £100 lands by the year'. William's son and heir was Thomas Hall, whose son John died in 1597. A 1575 lawsuit states John, son of Thomas Hall esq. dec'd is, and his ancestors have for a long time been seized of water mills and other lands' in the manor of Bradford, held by the abbey of Shaftesbury. John Hall was succeeded by son, John, builder of the present mansion, the Hall. The younger John died 1631, leaving son and heir, Thomas. Thomas Hall, later knighted, was a Royalist and compounded for his estates in 1647. He was succeeded in 1663 by his son John, the last of his line, who died in 1711."
The Wiltshire County Council has kindly provided on-line images of the book, "Bradford-on-Avon: a history and description by W. H. Jones,." brought up-to-date by J. Beddoe in 1907. To view on-line images of this book, go to www.wiltshire.gov.uk and select Community History (upper right), select Text Images (lower left), enter Search Key Word - Bradford - (lower left), this will bring a list of the on-line images, one of which will be the above document which provides a rich history of the Hall's of Bradford and their ancient ancestors. These documents were found while renovations were being made at Hall Manor, now knows as the Kingston house.
HALL MANOR BRADFORD
As shown by these documents, at the end of the 15th century as appears by a deed dated 21st Edward IV Henry Hall of this family had lands in Bradford, Lye, Troll Parva, Slade, Ford, Wraxhall, Holt, Broughton, Marlborough, Okebourn Meysey, Wilts, Freshford, Iford, Mitford, Frome, Fleete, Widcombe, Portishead and other placed in Somerset. Henry was son an heir of Nicholas Hall and Margaret Besill. He died soon after his father without heirs so these lands passed to his brother Thomas Hall, who passed them to son William. William's son Thomas acquired the lands after his father and was the builder of Kingston Aisle, a small Chantry Chapel twelve and a half feet in width and sixteen in length at the south-east angle of the Nave. It was renamed Kingston Aisle from the Hall maternal ancestors, the Dukes of Kingston. After Thomas Hall's decease, these land passed to his son and heir known as John Hall of Forde who married Dorothy Rogers, daughter of Anthony Rogers who died 25 April 1581. Dorothy was heir to her father's estate and John Hall his executor. Their son John Hall married Elizabeth Brune of Athelhampton, Co. Dorset, daughter of Henry Brune. It is believed that this John Hall was the builder of Kingston House, formerly known as The Hall , he is also the father of William and John Hall who eventually settled in Newport, Rhode Island after arriving in the Massachusetts Bay Colony about 1635.
It is not likely that there was any connection between the Hall's of Salisbury and the Hall's of Bradford as the arms used by the Salisbury Hall's are shown as: Argent, on a Chevron between the Columbines azure, a mullet of six points, which are entirely different from those of the Hall's of Bradford. The Bradford Hall's were considered antiquity, the name being met within very early deeds as "de Aula" or "de la Sale," (salle being the French word for Hall). William de Aula de Bradford is often mentioned among Wiltshire gentlemen witnessing documents during the reign of King Edward I (1273 - 1307), belonging to the wealthiest of residents of Wiltshire. The married into families of wealth and quality as can be seen from the extract from their pedigree, which refers to the elder branch, successively owners of the Bradford house, taken principally from the visitation of 1565.

Wiltshire History - Swayne and Hall mentioned
Text:
The early success of the new city can be gauged in several ways. The Poultry Cross is the sole survivor of four medieval market crosses, the other three being a cheese cross and a wool cross in the market place, and one on the south-eastern outskirts of the city where livestock was traded. The Poultry Cross was originally in the market place, the ranges of buildings to its north and east, facing onto Minster Street and Butcher Row, replacing temporary stalls. The names of these streets – Butcher Row, and the Latin name for Oatmeal Row – date from 1339 and 1455 respectively; those of Catherine Street (originally ‘the carters’ street’) and the Green Croft (originally ‘the meal-mongers’ street) date from 1339 and 1403. Pennyfarthing Street, according to legend, is named after the daily wage for which master masons living there and working on the new cathedral went on strike. The names of some chequers, taken from inns such as the Blue Boar, the Black Horse or the White Hart, reflect the early importance of travel. Others, named after individuals such as Swayne’s and Rolfe’s, reflect the economic power of the merchant class whose members were able to amass enough properties for entire chequers to be named after them. The growth of Salisbury’s population is a further measure of success: to an estimated 5,000 by about 1400, despite the Black Death, and to around 8,000 a century later at both dates Salisbury was amongst the ten largest English cities. The range of activities of a merchant such as John Hall, whose house is now the foyer of the Odeon Cinema in New Canal, is further evidence of Salisbury’s prosperity. Hall, four times Salisbury’s mayor and thrice its Member of Parliament, had a ship with which he imported dyestuffs, almonds, fruit, fish, soap, tar and iron, and engaged in piracy on the high seas, and his personal contribution to the royal levy of 1449 was 2% of the total of £66. Other reminders of the city’s wealth ranged from the chantry chapels in St Thomas’s church, endowed by William Ludlow and William Swayne, to the elaborate processions staged by the city’s guilds on major feast days, or to welcome royalty. But the pageantry, the conspicuous wealth of individuals, and the ability of the city to meet royal demands, as when the city provided and manned the warship Trout during Henry VI’s reign, all mask a glaring paradox. Throughout the middle ages, the city remained in a state of vassalage to the bishop. Attempts to appeal to royal authority, such as a major stand-off in 1305-6 between the city’s leaders and Bishop Simon of Ghent, came to nothing. Even after the Reformation, when the city fathers were quietly extending their powers by expanding their administrative and legal functions, the bishop still claimed ultimate authority, and not until 1612 was the city granted a charter confirming powers independent of episcopal authority.
However, once Salisbury gained its independence, it was not well placed to capitalise on its new status. The engine of Salisbury’s prosperity over the previous three centuries had been the wool trade, which flourished from the early fourteenth century as the Flemish textile industry went into decline. Salisbury’s speciality was a striped cloth known as a ray, but when changing fashion prompted a demand for undyed broadcloth, Salisbury’s merchants failed to rise to the challenge until centres of production and markets had been established elsewhere. The ancient trade guilds, reconstituted under the new corporation as trade companies, guarded their monopolies jealously, and thus had no incentive to respond to the challenge of fashion, and the clothiers were again wrong footed in the mid-seventeenth century, as medleys and Spanish cloths came into fashion. Far more serious, however, were the threats posed by the run of poor harvests in the 1620s, the arrival of the plague in 1627, and the outbreak of the Civil War in 1642. The skill and bravery of the Mayor, John Ivie, in managing the outbreak of plague when all his fellow-members’ energies were devoted to escaping the city, can be deduced from the fact that the plague of 1604 killed an estimated one-sixth of the people, whereas the proportion in 1627 was probably less than one-tenth. Salisbury was spared the worst effects of the Civil War, not being fortified, and thus of no great military significance. Occasionally Salisbury featured in the chronicle of national events, as when, after a skirmish in December 1644 Sir Edmund Ludlow escaped the Royalist clutches, or in March 1655, when Colonel Penruddock’s rebels kidnapped the Assize judges and the High Sheriff of the county, and freed the inmates of the gaol.
But it was not until after the Restoration that Salisbury’s fortunes took a turn for the better, and it was as a result of a social, rather than an industrial revolution. At the heart of this social revolution in Restoration Salisbury was Seth Ward, Bishop of Salisbury from 1662 to 1689, and his circle of friends and visitors. These ranged from Sir Christopher Wren, who reported on the Cathedral fabric, and the pioneering eye surgeon Dr Daubeney Turberville, to the physicist Robert Boyle, and Samuel Pepys. Ward was personally responsible for repairs to his palace to the tune of £2,000 and the founding of the College of Matrons, almshouses for clergy widows. He was a major subscriber to the Britford Navigation Scheme, the success of which was marked, in1684, when two 25-ton wherries docked by Ayleswade Bridge.
The Cathedral Close had for centuries been home to well-to-do secular society as well as the clergy, and with improvements and rebuildings in the late seventeenth to mid-eighteenth centuries, this process of gentrification became far more obvious. It is to this period that great houses like Malmesbury House and Arundells, Mompesson House and Myles Place belong. The process was paralleled in the city, notably with The Hall in New Street, the home of William Hussey, Alderman and MP for the city from 1774 to 1813, and The College (now Bourne Hill), until 1871 the Salisbury home of the Wyndham family.
Similarly, Ward’s almshouses were paralleled by a spate of charitable foundations in the city – Blechynden’s almshouses (1683), Taylor’s (1698), Frowde’s (1750 and Hussey’s (1794). The greatest examples of private beneficence for the public good come both from the Radnor circle, with the Infirmary (1767) endowed by the bequest of Lord Feversham of Downton (the first Earl’s father-in-law), and the Guildhall (1795), the gift to the city of its sometime MP, the second Earl. The Infirmary’s motto was ‘The sick and needy shall not always be forgotten’, and the building, now desirable apartments, still carries below the parapet the legend ‘supported by voluntary contributions’.

Old Sarum
Text:
Old Sarum, Wiltshire
The modern city of Salisbury began its history two miles to the north of its present location, on top of the iron age hillfort known as Old Sarum. This impressive earthwork consists of an outer defensive wall and
an inner rampart rising at an angle of over 45 degrees and measuring 40 feet from trough to top. The fortification, named Sorviodunum in Roman times, was occupied successively by the Romans, the Saxons, the Danes, and finally by the Norman conquerors of England.
Old Sarum was the site, in 1070, where William I disbanded his conquering army after having finally subdued the country four years after the invasion of 1066. The victorious troops were paid off in treasure, which the Normans had taken from the defeated Saxons. The construction of the royal castle (photo above), whose ruins are still visible today, had already begun under the direction of Osmund, the Conqueror's Chancellor (and, possibly, also his nephew). Around the castle and residence of King William I, a vibrant town was in the process of growing.
Under Lanfranc, the first Norman Archbishop of Canterbury, rural diocesan headquarters were ordered to relocate to major population centers. Accordingly, the See of Sherbourne was moved to Old Sarum in 1075. Herman, the Bishop who had moved over from Sherbourne, died in 1078.
It was left to his successor, the versatile Osmund, to build the new cathedral, which was consecrated in 1092. Just five days later, a great storm came and the building was largely destroyed by lightning. Reconstruction began in 1100, a year after Osmund's death. It was carried out under the new Chancellor, Roger, appointed by the newly crowned Henry I. In 1102, Roger was also named Bishop of Salisbury, and during his tenure, he accumulated great wealth and influence far beyond the boundaries of the town. Old Sarum reached the height of its authority and importance, at this time, also.
In 1139, four years after the death of HenryI, officers of KingStephen, who were distrustful of Roger's power, arrested him, seizing his estates and castles. Roger died later that year of fever at Old Sarum. The city of Old Sarum went into a decline and tension developed between the civil and religious authorities, escalating over the next 50 years. The solution to the tension, proposed by Bishop Herbert Poore to Richard I in 1194, was to move the cathedral away from Old Sarum to a virgin site on the banks of the nearby River Avon. Richard approved the move and the plans were drawn up. The townspeople actually began to move to the new site before any official announcement was made.
Finally, in 1220, the new Salisbury Cathedral was begun. It was more or less complete 38 years later, a new land speed record for cathedral construction. Cathedrals were usually evolutionary structures developing over centuries and incorporating many different architectural styles. Salisbury Cathedral, by contrast, due to its relatively brief construction time, is a spectacular example of a single architectural style, known as Early English (see photo at right).
After the move to lower ground, Old Sarum began to be reclaimed by nature and, by about1500, was used only as pasture land. Today, the ancient hillfort with its impressive Norman fortification has been excavated and can be appreciated as the important stronghold it used to be. This great earthwork is sometimes overlooked because of its proximity to Stonehenge (a mere two miles away). That is unfortunate because powerful impressions of the past still linger, here, and, in a strange way, seem to be amplified by the incredible beauty of the natural environment.

Extractions: Search the site: Alderbury and Whaddon ARCHITECT Augustus Pugin, literary giants Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins, and modern master Louis de Bernière all have associations with Alderbury and Whaddon. Drive along the main road from the Alderbury bypass as you pass through Clarendon and reach the outskirts of Alderbury and you will pass the Gothic turreted splendour of St Marie's Grange. This was Pugin's dream house, built to his own design when he was just 23 and two years married. It boasted three towers, a spiral staircase, parlour, library, chapel, two bedrooms, domestic quarters and superb views across the Avon Valley to the Cathedral. "It is," he later wrote, "the only modern building that is compleat in every part in the antient style." The annuitant style was something he favoured strongly - he restored much of John Halle's hall (now the Odeon cinema, Salisbury) to his vision of medieval glory and, after his conversion to Catholicism in 1835, was instrumental in the redesign of the city's St Osmund's church including some of the stained glass windows.
Comment:
John Halle's hall is mentioned as being of medieval glory

Is this the "Stratford" where Richard Hall was from? This puts him in London near Samuel Hall of Langford and Salisbury, MASS., etc.!!! P.S. Stratford Langton dates back to before 1600 as a well known place near London. jlh

GENUKI: Arksey Supplementary
Text:
In 1822, the following places were in
the Parish of Arksey:
"ALMHOLME, in the township of Bentley with Arksey, and parish of Arksey, lower division of Strafforth and Tickhill, liberty of Tickhill; 5½ miles from Doncaster, 8 from Thorne."
"BENTLEY, in the parish of Arksey, lower-division of Strafforth and Tickhill, liberty of Tickhill; 1½ mile N. of Doncaster, 10 from Thorne. Pop. including Arksey, 1,171, which being united, form a township.
A remarkable instance of punctuality occurred at Bentley, in a little old man called Billy Dutchman, a stone mason, who had kept a book in his house from 1767, wherein is inserted the name of every person by whom he had been employed, how many days he worked in each week, and what number idle; what money he had earned each week, summed up to a quarter every year. The whole for the first twenty nine years is £583. 15s. 3d. average, he says, 7s. 9d. per week. --Miller's Doncaster."
"BODLES, a public house in the township of Bentley with Arksey, and parish of Arksey; 1 mile from Doncaster."
"BRIDGE FOOT, a public house in the township of Bentley with Arksey, and parish of Arksey; ¼ of a mile from Doncaster."
"SHAFTHOLME, a hamlet in the township of Bentley with Arksey, and parish of Arksey, lower-division of Strafforth and Tickhill, liberty of Tickhill; 5 miles N. of Doncaster, 8 from Thorne."
"STOCKBRIDGE, a hamlet in the township of Bentley with Arksey, and parish of Arksey, liberty of Tickhill; 2½ miles N. of Doncaster."

PARISH REGISTERS.
IN England Parish Registers were unknown until the reign of Henry VIII.,
when the duty of keeping them was imposed on the Parochial Clergy by a
royal injunction, which was published by Cromwell, the Vicar-General,
on 29th September, 1538:
The Curate of every Parish Church shall keep one book or Register, which
book he shall every Sunday take forth, and in the presence of the
Churchwardens, or one of them, write and record in the same, all the
weddings, christenings, and burials, made the whole week before, and for
every time that the same shall be omitted shall forfeit to the said
church iijs. iiijd.
Of the extant Registers 812 begin from 1538.
In 1555 Cardinal Pole required the names of the Godfathers and Godmothers
to be recorded.
In 1597 (and 1603) every Parish was to provide itself with a parchment
book in which the entries from the old paper books were to be fairly and
legibly transcribed, each page being authenticated by the signature of
the Minister and Churchwardens.
This has given rise to a ludicrous notion respecting the longevity of
the clergy of the 16th Century. Duncomb, in his history of Herefordshire,
gravely asserts: "Robert Barnes" was Vicar of Bromyard 82 years, as his
name appears during the whole of that period in the Parochial Registers,
and one of his churchwardens filled that office from 1538 to 1600.
1644-5. The Directory substituted for the Book of Common Prayer, the
Minister being required to register births as well as baptisms.

DESCENDANTS OF SAMUEL GRAVES OF LYNN, MA
ANCESTRY OF SAMUEL GRAVES
The ancestry of Samuel Graves is not presently known. However, a strong clue is given by the fact that the area in Lynn, Mass. where he lived was called "Gravesend." In England, Gravesend is part of County Kent about 20 miles below London on the Thames River.
There were other Graves shipbuilding and seafaring families closer to London, but no relationship is presently known. The family of Rear Admiral Thomas Graves, who settled in Charlestown, Mass., was located in the parishes of Stepney and perhaps Whitechapel, Middlesex.
GENERATION 1
Samuel Graves (1) was born in England. He came to America about 1630, possibly as part of the Endicott group of 1628 or the Winthrop fleet of 1630. According to one account, he sailed from Southampton, England in the early spring of 1630 to New England.
He took up residence at Lynn, Mass., on the turnpike west of Floating Bridge, and the neighborhood in which he lived was called "Graves End" or "Gravesend" for more than 200 years. It is now known as Glenmere.
The first homestead was taken down in 1648 and the present one (as of 1900) erected, which has been from time to time remodeled, but still retains the appearance of old-time architecture. The house was still occupied by descendants of the original settler, and Mrs. Jane Mansfield, a granddaughter of Rand Graves, celebrated her 99th birthday in the old place on 3 Dec. 1900.
Samuel Graves was a farmer and a man of wealth. In 1635 he gave about 300 pounds for the support of the Colonial Government. He had three sons, all born in England between 1620 and 1630. (R-201)

GENERATION 2
CHILDREN OF SAMUEL GRAVES (1)
Thomas Graves (2) was born about 1620 in England, and was brought to America by his father in 1630. He married Hannah ------, and they continued to live in Lynn, Mass. until his death 24 Jan. 1696/7.
His will dated 22 Jan. 1696/7, and probated 15 Feb. 1696/7, names all his children, and reminds them to "be tender and careful of their aged mother who hath been tender and industrious." He gave his lands to his three sons Samuel, Mark and Thomas, and small legacies in money to his daughters. He made his son Samuel his executor. Inventory of his estate: 125, 15, 00. Thomas gave his lands in Lynn, with houses, to his sons Samuel and Mark, except 3 acres (adjoining land purchased of Joseph Farr) to his son Thomas.
His occupation was that of mariner as well as farmer. He and Mark Graves testified at a session of the Court in 1653 to making several voyages in the boats of the Iron Works at Saugus to Boston, Weymouth, Braintree and Hingham, and in 1658 he testified that his boat carried seven tons of bar iron and delivered it to Mr. Hutchins. The iron works were in operation in 1643, the first in America. (R-13, R-201)

Mark Graves was born about 1623 in England, and died about 1708-9 in Lynn, Essex Co., Mass. He was brought to America by his father in 1630. He first married Amy ------, probably about 1648, in Andover, Essex Co., Mass. She was born about 1627, and died 20 Feb. 1665 in Andover. He lived in Lynn, Mass. until about 1658, when he moved to Andover. He secondly married Elizabeth Knights, daughter of William and Elizabeth Knights of Lynn, on 14 Nov. 1667 (according to Marriages in Andover, N.E. Hist. and Gen. Register, vol. III, no. 1, p. 66). She was born 1642 and died in 1705. She was the widow of John Farrington, a cooper, and at one time a resident of Marblehead, Mass. Mark Graves lived for a time at Ipswich in 1678, at Andover in 1683, at Manchester in 1686, at Andover again in 1690, and afterwards and until his death at Lynn.
From Ipswich Court Records of 1665, Essex County Quarterly Court Records: "Marke Graves, aged about 45 years, deposed that on 10:6:1665, about an hour before sunset, Hanah Hutchinson came to his house, his daughter only being home, and asked to borrow some strong liquor for the toothache. His daughter did not consent, and said Hanah told her that a cow of her father's was running away from their pasture, and she ran to tell her father who was at a neighbor's house, not far off, leaving said Hanah in the room where there was a bottle of liquor. Deponent found that his cow was in the pasture and the bottle was nearly empty. His wife said there was a quarter of a pint there, etc. Sworn 12:6:1665 before Simon Bradstreete.
Hanah Hutchinson said that the girl told her there was vinegar in the bottle, etc. Also that she would kill the child or herself, etc."
Hanah was severely whipped for lying, cursing and stealing.
From Salem Quarterly Court Records of June 1677: "Mark Graves, aged about fifty-five years, and Elizabeth, his wife, aged about thirty-seven years, deposed that since Hannah, wife of Mr. John Blaine died, said Blaine and six of his children came from Mr. Ralph King's to dwell at the farmhouse where deponents and they lived under one roof. When the children came they were decently clothed, but during the three quarters of a year that they lived there, he did not provide for them and they suffered very much, and had it not been for their friends through pity taking some of them from him and relieving them, they might have perished. They suffered both for food and raiment, and what money Blaine received for wood or timber or for the work of his team was spent in drink, he coming home late at night in a quarrelsome mood and distempered with drink. He had only one cow to provide for the family, etc. Amy, daughter of Mark Graves, aged about seventeen years, deposed the same. Sworn in court."
From Salem Quarterly Court Records of June 1682: "Mathew Farrington, Sr. v. Mark Graves. Verdict for plaintiff. Appealed to the next Court of Assistants. Defendant bound, with Henry Bailey and Phillip Fowler as sureties.
Writ: Matthew Farrington, Sr. v. Mark Graves, living at Mr. Hubard's farm at Ipswich; for not allowing him disbursements upon the tide mill and housing amounting to 20 li., for his part of said mill and housing being so much better at the end of the lease than when he entered upon it; signed by John Fuller, for the court and town of Lynn; and served by Henery Skerry, marshal of Salem, by attachment of a table and great chair of defendant..."

He (or his father?) purchased land in Lynn from John (or Joseph) Farr in 1695, three acres bounded on lands of Joseph Collins, Jr. and Thomas Graves, Sr. (his father). (See the discussion for #14, especially regarding children. There is some uncertainty about who belongs where.) (R-201)

+49. Dorothy Graves, b.c. 1682, m. John Hibbard, 6 June 1708, d. 16 Aug. 17--.
Elizabeth Graves (11) was born about 1662 in Lynn, Essex Co., Mass. She married Thomas Brewer (or Bruer) on 4 Dec. 1682 in Lynn. Thomas was born about 1657, baptized 13 Nov. 1659, was aged over 14 in 1672, and died by 14 March 1709, perhaps by 10 Dec. 1706.
Thomas was the only son of Crispus Brewer of Boston and Lynn, Mass., born probably in England, about 1625-30, died in Lynn, Essex Co., Mass., between 10 Dec. 1706 and 23 Jan. 1707, intestate. He married, about 1652, Mary ------, who died in Lynn, 3 May 1693, intestate. Thomas's sister, Sarah, married Samuel Graves, brother of Elizabeth Graves.
Elizabeth was probably the widow Brewer who had a lame boy, 14 March 1708/9 (Lynn Town Records, 2:53). See Essex Antiquarian, 12:45, for more data.
In 1678, Thomas Brewer took the oath of allegiance in Lynn, vide ante. Note that, 14 Dec. 1697, "Voated that Thomas Brewer shall have ten pounds to help pay the doctor for his care"; granted to him six poles of town common to improve, 8 March 1698/99 (Lynn Town Records, 1:53, 60). The files also show that Thomas of Lynn took the oath 26 Feb. 1677, and that he owed Henry Collins 10 days work on the bridge in June 1682 (Essex Files, 6:399; 7:158; 8:364). 8 March 1699/1700, Thomas Brewer was to improve some land that he had worked on the last year (Lynn Town Records, 1:65).
All their children were born in Lynn, Mass. (R-201, R-205)

55. Crispus Brewer, b.c. 1694, d. 11 Dec. 1706. According to the Essex Antiquarian, vol. 12, p. 45, there was a Crispus (or Chrispus or Christover) Brewer who lived in Lynn, and died between 10 Dec. 1706 and 10 Feb. 1706/7. His wife Mary died 3 May 1693 in Lynn. It appears that there is more than one Crispus Brewer, and they have been confused with each other because of similar reported death dates.
56. John Brewer, b. 10 May 1700. Is this the "lame boy" referred to earlier? This may possibly be the John Brewer who married Mary Coats on 15 March 1722/23 in Lynn.
CHILDREN OF MARK GRAVES (3)
Abraham Graves (13) was born about 1649 at Lynn, Mass. He first married Anna Hayward on 28 June 1677 in Concord, Mass. He secondly married Sarah Dunton, daughter of Nathaniel Dunton of Andover, formerly of Reading, Mass., on 12 Sept. 1705. They lived at the south end of Andover, where he died 16 June 1729 at age 80. Sarah, his wife, died 21 June 1750 in Andover in her 91st year. (R-10, R-201, R-206)

+65. William Graves, m. Elizabeth Bean, c. 1727.
Capt. Ebenezer Graves (14) was born about 1651 in Lynn, Mass. He first married Mrs. Elizabeth (Stretton) Hopkins (her name also given as Eliphal Stratton), daughter of William Stretton and Elizabeth ------, on 21 Aug. 1715 in Boston, Mass. She was born 26 April 1689 in Boston, died 15 April 1717, and was buried at Capps Hill Cem., Boston. He then married Sarah (Barrett) Howell, daughter of Samuel Barrett, on 14 Feb. 1718 in Boston. He died in Ireland in May 1719, while on a voyage. He was a mariner and owned shares of at least two ships. He lived in Boston. After he died, his widow Sarah married William Russell on 2 Oct. 1724.
There is some uncertainty concerning Ebenezer Graves, some of which is discussed in the following two articles from the Boston Transcript.
"Boston Transcript, Jan. 19, 1914.
*3254. 1. Graves, Hibbard. C.H.A., Dec. 29, 1913. Without wishing to be over critical, I think that the style of C.H.A., while entertaining, leaves us often in doubt as to what are put forward as facts and what as surmises merely.
There was an Ebenezer Graves, 'mariner' (captain of the John and William of Boston), who made his will in 1719, and substantially as C.H.A. quotes. He left a bequest of 10 pounds to Mrs., not Miss, Esther Graves, though I agree that this is probably a courtesy title for a spinster. He left also a bequest of 10 pounds to Mrs. Dorothy Heborne; though this may be a form of Hibbard. Yet it is well to quote names from a will as written when offered as evidence. C.H.A. claims that Dorothy Graves, who married John Hibbard in 1708, was a daughter of this Ebenezer Graves above, and claims Ebenezer as a Lynn man, born before 1657, the date when Hannah, daughter of Mark (2) Graves is recorded. Lynn Vital Records, published, show a 'Hester Graves, daughter of Marke', born 10:12:1668. Was it not this Hester Graves that Ebenezer remembered in his will? Lynn records also show the intention of marriage of Elizabeth Graves to Jonathan Hobbs of Ipswich, published March 8, 1700/1. Was it not this Elizabeth Hobbs that Ebenezer remembered in his will? Lynn records also show the intention of marriage of Dorothy Graves of Lynn to John Hebard of Beverly, published May 10, 1714. Were there two Dorothys in the field? Is it not likely that the Hester Graves, Elizabeth Hobbs and Dorothy Heborne of Ebenezer Graves' will were his sisters rather than his daughters?
As to Mrs. Elizabeth Stratton, to whom Ebenezer Graves bequeathed a 'three pint silver tankard', if I but knew her parentage I should rejoice. Her relationship to Ebenezer Graves was that of a much revered motheR-in-law, it may be presumed. She was the widow of William Stratton, and her gravestone still stands on Copp's Hill beside those of her husband's father and mother. Among other children, William and Elizabeth had a daughter Eliphal Stratton born 1690, married in Boston, May 21, 1708, Samuel Hopkins, and second, on April 21, 1715, Ebenezer Graves. (Lynn records give the intentions of marriage of Ebenezer Graves of Lynn and Mrs. Eliphal Hopkins of Boston, published May 10, 1714.) Eliphal (Stratton) Hopkins Graves died April 15, 1717, aged twenty-seven years. This would seem to offer grounds enough to place Mrs. Elizabeth Stratton as an honored and respected mother-in-law, who, being well-to-do as her known affairs show, was most appropriately remembered by a keepsake.
To go back a little, Sarah, daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Manning) Barrat, born in Boston, Jan. 8, 1694/5, married Charles Hamell on June 17, 1714. She married, second, on Feb. 14, 1717/18, Ebenezer Graves. She married, third, on Oct. 2, 1724, William Russell. Samuel Barrett, in his will made in 1733, named all of his eleven children, and among them, his daughter, Sarah Russell. One son, George, was cut off with a cash payment. The other ten inherited the property. Samuel Barratt was the executor of Ebenezer Graves' will. His son John Barrett was made executor of the estate and guardian to Samuel Graves after Samuel Barrett's death. When Samuel Graves reached his majority, he joined with Thornton, Samuel, Edward, John and Susanna Barrett and Mary Coffin, Lydia Lewis and Mercy Skinner in the sale of nine-tenths on their interest in certain property to Isaiah Barrett, also a child of Samuel Barrett Sr. These are the same children named in Samuel Barrett's will, except that Samuel Graves had taken the interest that was his mother Sarah Russell's. Samuel Graves deposed that he was fifteen years old in 1734. He gave his guardian a full acquittance in 1740. This shows that he was born around 1718-19, and son of Sarah Barratt. Boston records give: 'Samuel, son of Ebenezer Graves and Sarah his wife, born Dec. 22, 1718.'
Captain Ebenezer Graves was a Lynn man, of course, but is it reasonable to think that a man born at least as early as 1655 would marry two wives after his sixtieth year, and both young women?
Samuel, son of Ebenezer above, went to Marblehead, where he appears as a merchant and shipbuilder. He probably married there Sept. 6, 1744, Sarah, daughter of John and Sarah Bayley, who was born at Marblehead July 31, 1720. They had a son Ebenezer baptized March 21, 1745; Samuel, baptized March 8, 1747; and Samuel again, born April 17, 1748.
Thomas Graves, brother of Captain Ebenezer, left two sons, John Graves of Dedham and Ebenezer Graves of Marblehead. This last Ebenezer probably married Sarah Lovess of Boston, their intention of marriage being published Oct. 1, 1741. He was deceased in 1744, when his widow, Sarah, sold the Hull Street house to John Graves of Dedham, and in the deed, states that her husband, Ebenezer, and John were the two sons of Thomas Graves. Both Captain Ebenezer and his brother Thomas Graves owned this Hull St. house at different times. Perhaps Ebenezer held a mortgage only, but I think that Philip Howell bought the place of Captain Ebenezer, who owned it in 1715. Philip Howell and wife sold it to Thomas Graves in 1728. Captain Ebenezer had property on Love Street, or Lane Street, and his son, Samuel, sold it about 1744.
In 1776, Ann (3) Stratton, daughter of William and Elizabeth and sister of Eliphal, who married Captain Ebenezer Graves, made her will and, among other bequests, gave a silver tankard, and perhaps the Graves heirloom, inherited from her mother, to her kinsman, Edward Ladd Sanders, a grandson of Bridget Stratton, and who married Eunice Marshall, granddaughter of Ann Stratton. These three, William, Bridget, and Ann, were the children of Bartholomew and Eliphal (Sanford) Stratton, Eliphal being the daughter of Governor John Sanford of Rhode Island.
Nauset.
Boston Transcript, Jan. 28, 1914.
*3254. 1. Graves, Hibbard. 'Nauset', Jan. 19, 1914. 'Nauset' will note that I offered all the papers I had on the subject, and gave it as my opinion only that these women might be the daughters of Ebenezer Graves. If they were his sisters, perhaps the Ebenezer Graves who was husband of Sarah Barrett was a son of the Ebenezer (3), and was left to do some late return to the brothers and sisters of his father. The facts are the quoted deeds and probates referred to; the surmises are all as to the relationship of Ebenezer of the 1719 probate to the parties to whom he left legacies. This has been a puzzle to a lot of us for several years, and it was my idea to lay it before the Transcript experts for their consideration, in such a way as to call attention. Glad you are entertained. So was I when you said you doubted the marriage of the Ebenezer to two young women on account of his age. I do not know myself when Ebenezer was born. So far I have seen no deposition and, as the 1719 man was buried in old Ireland, we are not likely to get his age at death. For all I can see, he may have been married three times. First to the mother of Dorothy, maybe an only child by his first wife, to the Stratton lady in 1708, who may have left a daughter Elizabeth, for all I can see to the contrary, who got a tankard, which was an heirloom in her own mother's family. She and Dorothy may have been his two daughters, already well endowed, Dorothy by her father at the time of her marriage with Hibbard and Elizabeth, already inheriting her mother Stratton's estate, so well provided for. Cannot you find some marriage contract to that effect, made to protect Elizabeth Stratton, a possible child by the second wife, from being obliged to share her material estate with a half sister Dorothy? Samuel also had his Barrett estates from being set off to their need.
Now as to the age of the possible father of Dorothy, she was married to John Hibbard in 1708; he was born 1682 and was alive in Methuen as late as 1750. Elisabeth, the eldest child, born in 1709; Ebenezer, the eldest son in 1710; John, 1716; Joseph, 1726; Daniel, 1728; Ruth, 1730, was called daughter of John Hibbard Jr., and wife Dorcas in baptisms, and in the margin of the records, Dorcas Graves by some hand added; Joseph Hibbard, uncle of John who married Dorothy, had a daughter Dorcas, who married Nathaniel Abbott in Andover, but I do not find any Dorcas, either Graves of Hibberd, early in these lines on the records, nor any John Jr., with a wife Dorcas. John's father married Abigail Graves in 1670, and second, Ruth Wheeler in 1679; third, to a Lydia.
Elisabeth, Ruth, and Martha were sisters of young John, all near his age, but the name of Ebenezer to the eldest son rather favored my theory that Dorothy was a daughter to our Andover Ebenezer, a mariner, by a first wife somewhere. Daniel was a brother of young John also, so the only new name dropped into this different list was the one of Ebenezer. John and Dorothy moved a good deal - Lynn, Beverly, Andover and Methuen. Elisabeth Farrington, formerly a Knight, widow of John Farrington of Lynn, was Mark's second wife, and may have furnished a first wife for Ebenezer, mother of Dorothy.
I have had spells of reading up all the Farrington papers, without avail as yet. The one brother and sister Esther may have had less from the old father during his life so Ebenezer tried to make it up to them, as Mark may have spent estate, held by right of the mother, of one at least. Elisabeth, born 1659, was the last child of Amy; did she marry William Stratton? Did her daughter marry cousin Ebenezer Graves, son of the older man in 1708? If her mother Elisabeth was sister of Ebenezer, son of Mark by the first wife Amy, a daughter would hardly marry her uncle, but if he was dead and his son Ebenezer was left to carry out the unsettled affairs of his father, it would be a reasonable guess that he took for one wife his cousin. There was likely to be a second daughter Elisabeth to old Mark by Elisabeth Farrington, the second wife, who would be eligible for Hobbs in 1701.
There is no record of any Dorothy to Mark's second wife, and she may have been at least eighteen in 1708, born about 1690. I feel sure that among the grandchildren of Mark and Amy somewhere, Dorothy lived in Lynn, at the time of marriage in 1708. As to Ebenezer, son of Mark, being about sixty in 1715, when he married Miss Stratton, if not a relative, he was at an age of course more suitable for a grandparent. We had in Andover an elderly man who lost his mother at the age of 62, got lonesome, married in six years a lady 28 years his junior, by whom he had one son, who married twice, and who had three sons and two daughters and as smart a lot of grandchildren as one sees anywhere, still surviving. There is no space nor time for the six marriage items of a Richardson of Billerica, some of whose folks lived here, and many other examples too numerous to quote. The facts don't seem to fit first rate theory as yet, but we may stumble upon some paper in the Methuen man's line which I have not yet recovered, that will tell the tale. I will also examine our tax list but I fear Ebenezer got away to sea before he paid a poll tax here.
Many thanks for added facts. C.H.A." (R-9, R-201)

Dorothy Graves (49) was born about 1682 (or 21 July or Sept. 1684) in Lynn, Mass., and died 16 Aug. 17--. She married John Hibbard (or Hebard or Hebbert or Hibbert) of Beverly, Mass., son of John Hibbert (or Hibbard) and his second wife Ruth Waldern (or Walden), on 6 June 1708 (according to Some Ancestral Lines, Raymon M. Tingley, Rutland, Vt., 1935). According to John Card Graves, the marriage was published 9 Dec. 1702. John was born in 1681, was baptized 4 June 1682 in Beverly, and died 3 May 1752 in Methuen, Mass.
John's father, John, was born 24 Jan. 1642/3 in Salem, Mass., died 26 March 1718 in Beverly, Mass., and first married Abigail Graves of Lynn, Mass. on 20 Oct. 1670. It is not known who Abigail was, but it is suspected that she may have been a granddaughter of original immigrant Samuel Graves of Lynn. A brother of John, Joseph Hibbert, married Elizabeth Graves on the same day, 20 Oct. 1670, and it is reasonable to assume that Abigail and Elizabeth were sisters.
Dorothy and John first lived in Lynn, Mass., where their first two children were born, then in Beverly, where their next child was born. They then lived in Andover, Mass. where their next four children were born, then in Haverhill, and finally in Methuen, Mass., where their last two children were born. These are the ancestors of Mrs. Mary James Borden (R-2) and of Mrs. Tahsin Yigit (R-3).

CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM GRAVES (13) AND ANNA HAYWARD
Samuel Graves (60) was born 3 Jan. 1684 in Andover, Mass., and died in 1747 in Haverhill, Mass. He first married Sarah Perkins, daughter of James Perkins and Leah Cox of Hampton, N.H., in Salisbury, Mass. She was born 3 Oct. 1682, and died 16 July 1724 in Londonderry (then Nutfield), N.H.
He secondly married Martha Bond, widow of John Bond of Haverhill, on 29 Jan. 1725. Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, pp. 66-7, states: John Bond, b. 12 Oct. 1688, son of Joseph Bond of Haverhill, b. 1653. Adm. estate of John Bond of Haverhill 5 June 1721.
Martha survived Samuel and was appointed Administratrix of his estate on 28 Oct. 1747. He moved from Londonderry to Kingston, N.H. in 1728, and to Haverhill, Mass. about 1741.
The following information substantiates the idea that Samuel Graves of Haverhill married Martha Bond, and that she was a daughter of Richard Hall, married first to John Bond, who died 1 May 1721.
The Williams genealogy (Cornelia Bartow Williams, Descendants of John Williams of Newbury and Haverhill, Mass.) states on page 25: John Bond, b. 12 Oct. 1688, d. 1 May 1721, m. 1715, Mary Hall. Children: Sarah, b. 21 Oct. 1716, d. 1 May 1721; John, b. 14 Jan. 1718/19; Jonathan, b. 14 Nov. 1721, d. 1 May 1721. There is a statement that "John Bond and his family (except son John) were drowned 1 May 1721 in the Merrimac River." This account is followed by an extensive bibliography.
The deaths of Sarah and Jonathan as given in this genealogy are not borne out by the Haverhill vital records. That of the father is. Vital Records of Haverhill, Mass. shows the following. Haverhill births: John, son of Joseph and Sarah (Williams) Bond, b. 12 Oct. 1688. Children of John and ------ (Hall) Bond: Sarah, b. 21 Oct. 1716; John, b. 14 Jan. 1718/19; Jonathan, b. 14 Nov. 1721. Haverhill marriages: John Bond and ------ Hall, before 1716. Haverhill deaths: John Bond, husband ------ Hall, drowned 1 May 1721.
According to this, Jonathan Bond was born after his father's death, confirming the mother's survival of the drowning accident.
There is other information from Vital Records of Bradford, Mass. Bradford was across the Merrimac River from Haverhill, and is now a part of Haverhill. Bradford births: Daughters of Richard and Martha Hall: Mary, b. 1684, Martha, b. 11 March 1686/7. Bradford marriages: Jo(h)n Bond and Mary Hale, (Dec. 8) 1715 (from the records of the First Congregational Church of Bradford). This shows that Richard and Martha Hall of Bradford did have a daughter Martha and that her age was such as to make her a more likely wife of John Bond than her sister Mary.
It is not clear how the compilers of the Haverhill vital records determined the surname of the wife of John Bond but did not know her first name. The writer of the Williams genealogy apparently relied on the Bradford records for the first name. The lack of definition of this name in the Haverhill records does at least throw the name Mary into question.
There was discussion of these families in the genealogy column of the Boston Transcript in the early part of this century. Item 6466 of the column of 15 July 1903 states that Richard Hall was an original member of the Bradford church and that his wife Martha joined from Haverhill in 1682. Item 6219 of 6 Sept. 1904 says that Richard Hall was of Bradford as early as 1673 and died 4 March 1730; and that his will of 18 Nov. 1723, proved 30 March 1730, mentions present wife Martha, sons John, Joseph and Richard, and daughter Mary Hall. If true, this means that Mary was unmarried, giving further support to the thesis that it was her sister Martha instead who married John Bond. Item 1524 of 31 Oct. 1910, supplemented by an item of the same number in the 14 Nov. 1910 issue of the Transcript, attempts to trace the ancestry of Richard Hall of Bradford, Deacon John Hall of Dover, N.H., and Ralph Hall, "progenitor of the Halls of Exeter, N.H.", who are postulated to be brothers to John Hall, baptized at Bradford, Yorkshire, on 12 Feb. 1564. He was the son of John and Ann (Morton) Hall. Lastly, item 4474 of the Transcript of 27 Jan. 1915, replying to an earlier query, states that John Bond, son of John and Sarah (Williams) Bond and grandson of John and Hester (Blakely) Bond of Newbury and Haverhill, was born Haverhill 12 Oct. 1688; married Martha Hall, born Bradford 11 March 1686/7, daughter of Richard Hall; and was drowned 1 May 1721. His widow married Samuel Graves. The item does not mention sources, but gives its information with finality. (R-27, R-201)

161. John Graves, bapt. 30 Sept. 1722.
John Graves (63) was born 11 June 1691 at Andover, Mass. It may be that he died in 1790, nearly 100 years old, and his son Crispus was appointed administrator of his estate on 3 Oct. 1790. However, based on the baptismal records of the First Church of Falmouth, Maine, it appears more likely that John died in 1726 and his younger brother, William, married his widow, having 6 children that have sometimes been attributed to John.
John went at an early age to that portion of Mass. which is now the State of Maine, and settled in Falmouth, where lands were granted to him in 1721. He married Elizabeth Bean, daughter of Captain Joseph Bean and Joanna Treethy of York, Maine, about 1724. She was born 21 May 1704. He was on the Maine Militia Master Roll in Capt. Larraby's Co., April to Nov. 1722. His daughters were said to have married Messrs. Stacy, Woodbury and Cutler.
Note: John Graves did not marry Martha Mitten as some have believed. The John Graves who married Martha Mitton (or Mitten) arrived from England about 1673 (according to Roland B. Graves), and married Martha of Ipswich prior to 8 Nov. 1677. Martha was a daughter of Michael Mitton. John and Martha did move to Falmouth, Me. and stayed there briefly before moving to New Hampshire and eventually to Rhode Island. The fact that they were in Falmouth for a short time probably led to the confusion. (The basis for this paragraph is found in the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and N.H., by Sybil Noyes, Genealogical Pub. Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1976.)
Falmouth records indicate that John Graves was granted 30 acres of land on the west side of the Persumscott River (Casco side) on 3 July 1721. On 10 April 1727 John was assessed 160 pounds for the salary, board and parsonage for the Reverend Thomas Smith of the First Parish. On 27 April 1727 a house lot was laid out for John in the First Parish. Later on, after he had maintained the land for seven to ten years, he obtained permanent title. The mark for John Graves' creatures was a "crape on the top of each ere". Also, John was granted 10 acres of land 1 April 1724. John was appointed a Constable at one time by the town of Falmouth.
It is interesting to note one reason records of early Falmouth are so difficult to find today is that on October 17, 1775 (about 6 months after the battles of Concord and Lexington) Captain Mowatt in command of 5 ships dispatched from Boston (by Admiral Thomas Graves, in command of the British fleet blockading Boston harbor) completely destroyed Falmouth by bombardment, and a shore party burned all buildings out of reach of the ships' cannon. Falmouth at that time was the largest and richest town in Maine, composed of about 400 dwelling houses. With winter fast approaching, the early settlers must have had severe problems and hardships. The reason for this attack was that the patriotic settlers in Falmouth had refused to permit the Tories to sell supplies to ships of the British Navy and this was their punishment. (See The History of Maine, by John S. C. Abbott.)
The four sons of John and William (referred to by Rev. Charles N. Sinnett, R-206) - Samuel, Joseph, Johnson, and John - came to Topsham, Me. from Falmouth at different times, about 1762. These were the four "brothers" discussed by Rev. Sinnett. It was common in colonial days to refer to half-brothers as brothers. Joseph and Samuel were the grantees of a deed of 1000 acres near and convenient to the two branches of the western stream of Cathance River. Deed recorded 16 March 1758.
Woodman in his sketch of Topsham, Maine wrote: "The four Graves brothers who settled at Topsham, Maine came to America from Gloucestershire, England, and went to Falmouth, Maine. The date is not known. Together these four brothers had 500 acres of the Topsham, Maine millwright in a body. Samuel Graves had the southwest division of 150 acres; Joseph Graves had the next 100 acres. Johnson Graves, with his brother John Graves (who came to Topsham, Maine later than the other three brothers) had 250 acres of land adjoining the land of Joseph Graves, who lived and died on his lot."
"Joseph Graves, Samuel Graves, Samuel Staples (?), brothers of Johnson Graves, but all of them said to be of Falmouth, but now of a place called Topsham, Maine, are grantees for 209 pounds and and 1/2 of one thousand acres to be laid out near and convenient to the two branches of the western stream of Cathance River. The grantees are Samuel Waterhouse of Boston, merchant, and Hannah, his wife, the only representative and daughter of Job Lewis, Esqr., late of Boston. They sell in said deed all our right, which they declare to be one-half of the said one thousand acres, as same is described in writing of a deed of Feb. 20, 1740 from Henry Gibbs to our said father, Job Lewis. Recorded at York Co., Maine. References, etc. (The other half of the above mentioned land is said to have belonged to Samuel Winchell and others.)"
The 1790 census for the Town of Topsham, Maine, indicates John headed a family of 3 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 3 females; Johnson headed a family of 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 3 females; Samuel headed a family of 2 males over 16, 4 males under 16, and 4 females.
The 1800 census indicated John Jr. headed a family of 1 male over 16 and 5 females; Johnson headed a family of 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 2 females; Joseph headed a family of 1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, and 2 females.
The three children shown below are listed in the baptismal records of the First Church of Falmouth, Maine. (R-10, R-13, R-201, R-206)

Children - Hovey
+331. Sarah Hovey, b. 19 Nov. 1746, m. John Farwell, 16 March 1769, d. 23 April 1829.
Mary Graves (148) was born 29 July 1729 in Haverhill, Essex Co., Mass., was baptized 11 Jan. 1729/30 in Second Church, Salisbury (or Amesbury), Mass., and died 1 Oct. 1807 in Haverhill, Mass. She married Jonathan Shepard on 30 May 1751 in Haverhill, Mass. (John Card Graves said she probably married Moses Call, but nothing has been found to support this.) Sources for these facts are: Jacobus, The Shepard Families of New England, vol. III, p. 355; Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, p. 511, from records of Second Church of Amesbury; and inscriptions in the family Bible belonging to Mehitable Shepard, daughter of Jonathan Shepard and Mary Graves. Included in the Bible entries are the names of Mary's parents, "Martha Graves" and "Samuel Graves of King Street, Ipswich." There are no other Graves names in the Bible.
From Jacobus's book (with slight editing changes): Jonathan Shepard, son of Jonathan Shepard, was born 22 Sept. 1728 and died in 1793 (before 29 April), both in Haverhill, Mass. He was admitted to the First Congregational Church of Haverhill, 10 June 1753, and had children baptized there. Later in life he became a Baptist, for his will mentions his pew in the Baptist Church at Haverhill.
He is reported as a private in Capt. Richard Ayer's Co., Col. Johnson's Regt., which marched on the alarm of 19 April 1775; "reported a deacon." (Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in the Revolution, 14:116.)
He was listed in the 1790 census in Haverhill with one male under 16 (although his son Jonathan was actually 18) and two females.
The church record of his marriage calls him "Mr." and his bride "Mrs.", but this term of respect does not at that period imply that the bride was a widow. A deed is cited, 15 May 1792, by which Jonathan Shepard of Haverhill conveyed land "formerly of my father Joseph Bond" (Essex County Land), which suggests that his bride was a Bond by birth and not a widow Graves. (Jacobus did not have the Bible record available to him as cited earlier.) There was, indeed, a Joseph Bond of Haverhill whose will, dated 7 Dec. 1724, named with other children a daughter Mary. It is estimated, however, that this Mary Bond would have been too old to be mother of all the Shepard children. Since a daughter of Jonathan gave a child the full name of Mary Graves, it seems probable that this was the maiden name of Jonathan's wife. Furthermore, if the land formerly belonging to Joseph Bond had been inherited by Jonathan's wife, she was then living and should have joined him in the deed. It is suggested that the cited deed should be re-examined.
On 19 April 1754, Jonathan Shepard of Haverhill, blacksmith, and Solomon Kimball of Bradford, Mass., bought land in Hampstead, N.H., which they sold 1 Dec. 1758. Also, on 12 Dec. 1759, Jonathan Shepard, Jr., of Haverhill, blacksmith, with the same Solomon Kimball, sold land in the 4th division of the original right laid out to Samuel Graves, dec'd. (New Hampshire Land).
On 10 April 1792, Jonathan Shepard of Exeter, N.H., blacksmith, conveyed to James Shepard of Hampstead, N.H. (Deeds, Exeter, N.H.).
The will of Jonathan Shepard of Haverhill, yoeman, dated 16 Feb. 1793, proved 29 April 1793, named his wife Mary; son Jonathan; and daughters Polly Shepard and Mehitable Ayres; James Duncan, executor. Duncan declined and administration was granted to James Shepard (Jonathan's brother) of Hampstead, N.H. (Essex Co. Probate). (R-27, R-204)

CHILDREN OF WILLIAM GRAVES (65) AND ELIZABETH BEAN
Joseph Graves (165) was born about 1728 in Falmouth, Me., was baptized in May 1730, died 11 June 1797 in Topsham, Me., and was buried in the Old Topsham Cem. He married Jane Adams, sister of Joshua, Moses, and Benjamin Adams. They were both of Falmouth, Maine. She was born 13 May 1733 at Newbury, Mass. Their intentions were published 2 (or 5) Nov. 1754. She was probably a daughter of Jacob Adams of Falmouth and Mary ------. Falmouth town records show Jacob Adams granted 40 acres of land and 1 acre of land for a house lot. Other Falmouth town records show his children to be: Elizabeth, b. 4 July 1728; John, b. 28 June 1730; Mary, b. 5 July 1732. Mary had published intentions of marriage to David Woodman on 22 Jan. 1748.
Samuel and Joseph, the oldest of the four Graves brothers, evidently moved to Topsham in 1758, as the deed transferring the 1000 acres of land they purchased was dated 16 March 1758.
The town of Topsham was incorporated in 1764, and Joseph was a selectman in 1770. There is also a record that he was a member of the Church of Christ Congregational Church in Topsham. (R-13, R-201)

Charles Johnson Graves (166), called Johnson, was born 8 (or 1) Feb. 1732 in Falmouth, Maine, was baptized 28 March 1732, and died 18 Jan. 1824 in Topsham, Me. It is conjectured that he used the name Johnson because he didn't like the name Charles, thus explaining the apparent strangeness of naming one son John and another Johnson. He first married Sarah Staples of Falmouth, sister of Stephen and Samuel Staples, on 10 Sept. 1757 in Falmouth, Me. He secondly married Mrs. Susanna (Hobbs) Staples, widow of Stephen Staples, formerly of Falmouth. He went to Topsham, Me. about 1762 (or 23 June 1803). His first three children were apparently born in Falmouth, Me., and the last two were born in Topsham.
Johnson's cemetery stone, two miles north of Topsham on Route 24, has the name "Greaves" and date of death as Jan. 27, 1824, age 91 years, 11 months, 8 days. He was a private in a Massachusetts unit (from Topsham) during the Rev. War, and those records indicate birthdate as 19 Aug. 1732 and death on 8 Jan. 1824. Sarah Staples was a daughter of Samuel Staples II and Elizabeth. Samuel II was granted land in Falmouth on 17 Aug. 1727, 6 Nov. 1727, and 15 March 1727/8. Sarah was born 16 March 1736/7, and marriage intention pub. 10 Sept. 1757. (R-13, R-201)
