CAUTION: STOP!! This is the best that can be done according to Documentation!!DO NOT MERGE AND CHANGE. Rev. John Lothrop and his family has now been corrected by most recent scholarship from NEHGS, "Great Migration," Vol. 4, I-L, 345-351. PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND READ SOURCES: Recently Rev. John's son Samuel, who has a huge posterity, was deleted from Family Tree but is fortunately now restored. Much care has been taken to get this record correct by available primary sources. [Since this CAUTION was written, Samuel's posterity was deleted again and is now restored for the second time some unfortunately some information was destroyed. ! Also this is a newer version of Rev. John Lothrop that has lost valuable data through merges. Let's be cautious, please. Merges have consequences, especially when merely done on basis of similar name without regard to reliable sources, different localities, dates, family members and which is the earliest record in the system, etc. See Great Migration source at
Please also see E. B. Huntington, "A Genealogical Memoir of the Lo-Lathrop Family," pp 17– 19 and Clifford L. Stott, TAG(October 1995):252 that shows the origin of the vexing error that mixes two different Thomas Lothrop/Lathrop families (latter on pp. 9– 10). See in Sources and Memories.
A previous contributor wrote:
The story of most Lathrops in America starts with the illustrious Rev. John Lothropp. There is much information about him on the Web ( He was the second pastor of the first Independent (Congregational) Church in London. At that time the King, Charles I, was in a conflict with Parliament. Puritans, Presbyterians, and Independent-- all dissenters from the Church of England supported Parliament. This conflict led up to the English Civil War. King Charles I would be beheaded in 1649 by forces led by Lord Cromwell during the English Civil War.
Scholastic Achievements:
(1) Entered Christ Church College, Oxford then Queens College, Cambridge 15 Oct, 1602 to 1609, Oxford, England .
(2) 15 October 1602 John Lothropp was awarded a scholarship to Oxford University by the Bishop of London. He matriculated at Christ Church College.
1603 John transferred to Cambridge University.
He graduated from Cambridge University in 1604 with a BA.
1605 John graduated from Queens College, Cambridge with a B.A.
20 December 1607 John was ordained a deacon by the Bishop of Lincoln. He began his ministry for the Church of England in Bennington, Hertfordshire as Curate (Lincoln Diocese).
1609 John received his M.A. from Cambridge.
15. About 1611-1623 he became curate of the church at Egerton, Kent, England. In 1623 he replaced Rev. Henry Jacob of the First Independent Church located in Southwark, August 1610 John became the Perpetual Curate of the Egerton Church in Kent, Surrey, England and the services were held in secret. In 1632 he was imprisoned but released in 1634. ("New England Memorial," pg.140-141)
As a result of the political conflict between King Charles and Parliament religious dissenters were persecuted. In England they were persecuted, tortured, imprisoned and put to death. Rev. Lothropp was captured by representatives of the Archbishop of Canterbury, tried by the Star Chamber and imprisoned at Newgate Prison from 1632 to 1634. While in prison his wife, Hannah House, died. On 24 April 1634 Rev. Lothropp was granted a petition for liberty to go into foreign exile. He was banished to America upon his release.
John Lathrop sailed on 18 Sept. 1634 on the Griffin to Boston Massachusetts with a church and colony of about 30, "Kentish men" from Egerton in Kent. (The famous Ann Hutchinson also came to America on the Griffin).They probably left London, England about Aug. 1, 1634.
Lathrop settled at Scituate, a small village near Boston, and then at Barnstable in 1639 on Cape Cod, being the first minister who preached at either place. He died in Barnstable in 1653. Today we may visit the Sturgis Library (which houses his Bible) in Barnstable part of which was built onto the existing house that the Rev. Lothrop and his family lived.
Rev. John Lothrop's first house in Situate was "mean." The walls were made of poles filled between with stones and clay, the roof was thatched, the chimney to the mantle of rough stone, and above of cob-work, the windows of oiled paper, and the floors of hand sawed planks. John called such structures booths, and said they were open and cold
in winter a high piled fire had to be kept burning. All the houses in the village were the same.
In Massachusetts, they were also imprisoned, put in the stocks, whipped, and banished from the colony. John was an Ana Baptist. The first Baptist Church was an offshoot from John Lathrop's church. In 1640 Rev. Lathrop, meeting with opposition, determined with his friends to move to Sippican, on the south shore. Here they had to contend with French Privateers, pirates and hostile Indians.
Nathaniel Morton, author of "New England's Memorial" was personally acquainted with John Lothrop. He says about Lothrop, "He was a man of a humble and broken heart and spirit, lively in dispensation of the word of God, studious of peace, furnished with godly contentment, willing to spend and to be spent for the cause of Christ. He fell asleep in the Lord November 8, 1653."
Lothrop became pastor of the First Church in Scituate where he remained till 1639 when a dispute split the church. Rev John led a group of his followers to Barnstable Mass., about 40 miles to the south east on the north shore of Cape Cod. Barnstable considers Rev John Lothrop to be its founder and has several references to him on its web pages. His house is now the town library.
("The Yarmouth Register," p 22 7 Sep 1989.)
Rev. John and his wife Hannah House were ancestors of Presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and George Bush, according to "Ancestors of American Presidents" by Gary Boyd Roberts (page 188).
His father was Thomas Lowthropp of Ellen, Yorkshire. Reverend Lothrop was pastor of the original Barnstable, Massachusetts church during all of his 14 years in town. Lothrop was 55 years old when he and some of the 25 families of his church arrived in Barnstable in October 1639. A separatist with university degrees, Lothrop withdrew from the Church of England and had been imprisoned for two years at the Newgate Prison in England after a meeting of his London congregation was raided. He was the successor of Henry Jacob, who had established the first "Desirous of peace and notably unaggressive, he was nevertheless precise, insistent, uncompromising in adherence to what he personally thought right," wrote Donald G. Trayser in "Barnstable: Three Centuries of a Cape Cod Town," 1939. He added: "In his younger days Lothrop was a radical leading revolt. In his last, he was a conservative stemming revolt." Lothrop died in 1653, aged 69. His first wife died while he was in jail.

Supposed 1575 Marriage
A supposed marriage record for Thomas Lowthroppe has been listed as having taken place in 1575 in Etton, Yorkshire, to Mary Howell. A careful search has been made of the Etton, Yorkshire, parish registers (FHL Film 1850149 it 5) and there is no record of a marriage for Thomas Lowthroppe (variant spellings) to a Mary Howell in 1575 or any other year from 1560-1588. So this entry is invalid. Furthermore, there is a burial record in 1588 for Maud, wife of Thomas Lowthroppe, so even the first name of Mary is now called into question. Reason This Information Is Correct
Maiden name of John Lathrope's second wife Anne is unknown.

"Notes on John1 Lyford of Plymouth Colony and Virginia, His Child Ann, and His Widow's Second Husband" by John E D'Anieri in The American Genealogist (83:174-8) gives the following details about this couple.
- Rev. John Lyford, born by about 1590, an Anglican clergyman; arrived Plymouth 1624; expulsion in 1625; then to Nantasket, later Salem, and finally Virginia.
- By 9 Apr 1629, minister at Martins Hundred, VA.
- Will dated 9 Feb 1629[/30] at Shirley Hundred mentioned son Obadiah Liford, daughter Anne Liford, and wife Sarah Liford; proved 19 May 1632 by executor, son Obadiah.
- Anne Liford, age 13, enrolled as passenger of the Susan & Ellen in 1635; died July 1639 in Hingham.
- On 21 Oct 1642, Ruth Lyford of Hingham acknowledged that her stepfather Edmund "Hubbert" had discharged a legacy from "my father John Leyford by his last Will & Testament." On 3 Jun 1642, Mordecai Lyford of Hingham acknowledged the same.
- Robert Okely was a witness to John Lyford's will and might be the second husband of John's wife Sarah which would explain why "No other record of this man [Oakeley] has been found in New England."
- Son Obadiah, b. say 1611; according to Sarah "John Lyford had sired an illegitimate child by someone else before their marriage, and that 'the bastard [was] brought home to them' after their marriage."
- Son Mordecai was "an infant under the age of twenty and one yeares, that is to say, of the age of foureteene yeares or thereabouts" in 1639.

CAUTION: PLEASE READ BEFORE CHANGING. PLEASE NOTE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THIS YORKSHIRE FAMLY AND THE STAFFORDSHIRE FAMILY WITH WHOM LOTS OF INCORRECT MIXING HAS OCCURRED AND PLEASE READ "LATHROP FAMILY MEMOIRS" for his correct wives and children. He did NOT marry Mary Salt. Her husband was a different Thomas Lothrop. He did not marry Mary Howell. Professional research has shown that is not proven by primary sources with evidence to the contrary. PLEASE DO NOT MERGE AND CONFUSE AGAIN. "Lathrop Family Memoirs," pages 18-19 gives the family of this Thomas as follows:
Wife #1:
ROBERT: CATHERINE; AWDREY; ELIZABETH; ANNE, bapt 13 Feb, 1568/9, died young; ISABELL, bap. 3 July 1570; MARTIN, bap. 21 Oct 1572, and buried, Nov. 12, 1672; ANDREW, pat. 23 Apr 1574.
Wife #2:
ANNE, bapt. 29 July 1576; MARY, (named in brother Thomas's will in 1628 as wife of John Gallant; THOMAS, bap. 14 Oct 1582; JOHN, bap. 20 Dec 1584 who became the Rev. John Lothrop and founder of the American family.
Wife #3:
MARGARET, bap. 3 Feb 1590/1; ISABELL, bap. 29 Sept. 1592; LUCY, bap. 4 Jan. 1593/4; RICHARD, 12 Oct 1595; MARK, bap. 27 Sep 1597 who appears to have died unmarried in 1660; LAWRENCE, 29 Aug 1599; JANE, 14 Mar 1600/1; JOSEPH, 31 Dec 1602; BARTHOLOMEW, 1 Mar 1604/5/. It is difficult to organize these into families properly as probably none of the 3 wives names were known by primary source records because they were not mentioned in "Lathrop Family Memoirs.";view=1up;seq=32

Robert Lathrop) was born about 1513 in Cherry Burton, Yorks, England. To give a birth date 1536. He died in 1606 in North Burton, England. He makes very specific bequests to the poor, the church and his children, including Lawrence who receives "the balance of his estate" (together with other children and his mother), "a bright bay gelding", and "two stotes." To his son Thomas he gives "all lands and appurtenances in Walkinton," "a jack" (coat of mail), "bill" (battle ax), "steel cap", and "pair of splents"--as well as equal share in the balance of his estate as was stated for Lawrence. Note that the birth date and wife's last name, here given, is 1588
He was married to Ellen Aston. Children were: Thomas Lathrop Lawrence Lathrop ) .
Robert married Ellen Aston daughter of Thomas and Mrs. Thomas, in 1535 in Cherry Burton, Yorkshire, East Riding, England.Ellen Aston was born in 1510-1519 in Cherry Burton, Yorkshire, England, christened in 1519 in Cherry Burton, Yorkshire, England and died on 8 Mar 1572 in Cherry Burton, Yorkshire, England

Thomas (Robert & Ellen Alston) was father of 22 children.He was born on 19 Jun 1536 in Cherry Burton, Yorks, England. This line is not carried forward. There are numerous references for Rev. John which supply generous expansion of his family, including this Memoir. He was married to Mary Howell on 2 Sep 1575. [sic]
A supposed marriage record for Thomas Lowthroppe has been listed as having taken place in 1575 in Etton, Yorkshire, to Mary Howell. A careful search has been made of the Etton, Yorkshire, parish registers (FHL Film 1850149 it 5) and there is no record of a marriage for Thomas Lowthroppe (variant spellings) to a Mary Howell in 1575 or any other year from 1560-1588. So this entry is invalid. Furthermore, there is a burial record in 1588 for Maud, wife of Thomas Lowthroppe, so even the first name of Mary is now called into question.
Please see the distinct difference with the Staffordshire family of a different Thomas Lathrop who married Mary Salte in Huntington, "Lathrop Family Memoir," pages 9-10 added in their Memories. Hopefully seeing this "picture" will be worth a thousand words and prevent anymore incorrect merges and relationship assignments between these families.

JOSEPH HARDING was born about 1596 in Northampton, Northamptonshire, England, the son of John Harding and his wife Mary ______. It appears that he, and two of his brothers, Richard and John, came to New England, with the Georges company in 1623.
Captain Sir Robert Gorges, was a son of Sir Ferdinando Gorges, styled the "father of colonization in America" and received from the king a charter which constituted him a proprietor of Maine. Captain Sir Robert Georges, for his valiant services to the Crown during the Venetian Wars, was, in 1623, appointed by the Council of New England "Governor of the Plymouth Country." Captain Gorges was given a grant of land on Massachusetts Bay, four miles wide that extended into the interior for thirty miles. A few years previous Capt. Gorges had married Mary Harding, described as the daughter and heir of William Harding, Gent.
Soon after his official appointment, an expedition was fitted out at the port of Harwick, County Essex, to take the new Governor, his wife and "Sundre passengers and their families" to his estate in the new world. In the list of passengers with the Governor we find the names of John Harding, wife and young sons, Joseph Harding and Richard Harding his wife and infant son. Indications are that they were brothers, and cousins of Lady Gorges. [Alfred Alder Doane in "The Doane Family" names these three Hardings and implies that they are the children of Joseph and Martha Harding. However, this cannot be the case. It is possible that Phebe and Winnifred were daughters of Joseph Harding by a previous wife, who came to America after he was settled here. (No family members were listed for Joseph when he arrived in America with the Gorges company.)]
From Burke's "Landed Gentry" we learn that the early seat of the Hardings in England was at Upcott, near Barnstable, and that their descent was derived from Fitz Harding, and circumstances further point to the presumption that from this family came William Harding, the father of Mary Harding, wife of Sir Robert Gorges. The fact that Mary Harding Gorges was described as the "daughter and Heir" of William Harding places her as "a women without brothers," consequently the three other Hardings named could not have been brothers of Mary. In the "shire records" of Northampton a will of one John Harding dated 1636 was located. This Will granted property to his brother William, and money and personal property to his sons Richard, Joseph, John, Samuel, Amos and Oliver. If, as is generally supposed, the brother William was the father of Mary, the three immigrant brothers, all of whose names were mentioned in the will, were cousins of Lady Gorges. A notation on the records made at the time the will was recorded states that the testator died 14 Jan. 1637, and the will, at the time made, states that the testator was then in his 70th year, fixing the date of his birth as approximately 1567.
The exact date of their departure from Harwick is not known, but it is recorded that the party reached the shores of America in August, 1623. On arriving in America Gov. Gorges and party settled on the abandoned plantations of Thomas Weston's people at Wessagusset, (later Weymouth Landing, and partly in Braintree,) intending to begin a plantation, that being the "place he had resolved to make a residence."
Joseph Harding, of Braintree, as his name appears on the records, was probably a mariner, engaged in fishing. As a member of the Gorges company he probably received a grant of land in the Weymouth/Braintree area. There is evidence that these grants were honored by subsequent settlers in the area after the Gorges company had been dissolved.
Joseph was married to Martha _____, of Plymouth in 1624. [Note: it is presumed, was the sister of Dea. John Doane of Plymouth and Duxbury, However, there is no proof of this.] It is not known when or under what circumstances Martha arrived in Plymouth.
Joseph Harding died in 1630 leaving his widow, Martha, and, so far as the records show, two children John, b.1625 and Joseph, b. 1629. The widow Martha Harding was taxed in Plymouth in 1632, and was living there in March, 1633.
Martha Harding died in 1633 at Plymouth in 1633 and the inventory of her estate was presented 28 Oct.1633. It states that she died without a will, leaving a son in the custody of Mr. John Done, in behalf of whom Mr. Done is allowed to administer. Her estate amounted to £20. 18. 6. Her debts to £33.9 1 and among her debts were £20 to three of her husband's brothers in England. John Doane charged her estate with £9.9.11 money lent to, or paid out for Martha Harding.
Phoebe Harding married John Brown, Jr., of Duxbury, 26 Mar. 1634. Winnifred Harding married Thomas Whitten in 1639.
In 1645 a ''Capt. Harding" was sent to treat with the Narragansetts. Some have thought this must have been Joseph's son John. However, Joseph's son John would have been just twenty years old. It's not likely that he would have been referred to as "Captain" at that age nor is it likely that the Colony would have sent such a young man out to treat with the Indians. Therefore, this was probably Joseph's younger brother, John, who came to America with him in the Gorges company in 1623.
In 1652, Joseph Harding of Eastham was presented to the Grand Enquest, "for carrying an Indian's gun into the smith's to be mended in his uncle's name." Would John Doane have paid out over nine pounds for the widow Harding, if she was not a relative? Unless a relative, would Martha Harding have left a son to the custody of John Doane when she evidently had other children in Plymouth grown to manhood and womanhood?
Children of Joseph Harding and an unknown 1st wife:
·Phoebe Harding, born about 1614 in England; married John Brown, Jr, of Duxbury, 26 Mar.1634.
·Winnifred Hardlng, born about 1619 in England, married Thomas Whitten in 1639.
Children of Joseph Harding and Martha Doane:
·John Harding: b. about 1625, of Braintree. After the death of his father, seems to have lived with his maternal uncle, Deacon John Doane, and to have removed with him and his younger brother, Joseph, to Duxbury, where in 1643, he was enrolled as able to bear arms. The next year Dea. Doan removed to Eastham, and John afterward settled, as is presumed, upon land held by his uncle Richard Harding, which had been assigned by Gorges to is father at Wassagussett, and which, when the town was laid out, had fallen in Braintree.
·Joseph Harding: b abt 1629 of Braintree. After completing his minority with Dea. John Doane at Eastham came to Braintree. He married, 4 Apr 1660, Bethia Cook, daughter of Josiah Cook and Elizabeth Ring, widow Deane, of Eastham, formerly of Plymouth, and one of the grantees of Little Compton. Joseph was admitted a citizen of Eastham, where his 10 children were born.

MOTHER of REV. JOHN LOTHROP. Burial Record shows her name as Maud. Please see all the pages from "Lathrop Family Memoir" that show that this Maud or Mary, the wife of this Thomas Lathrop of Cherry Burton and Etton, Yorkshire, England, was NOT from Staffordshire. That was a different Mary who married a different Thomas Lathrop from Staffordshire. See pages 17-19 of "Lathrop Family Memoir" in Memories that easily distinguishes these different families if one compares pages 9 and 10. The surname of Mary or Maude is not known.There is much confusion about the second wife of Thomas Lathrop because someone long ago mixed up 2 different families into one. She was born sometime between 1538 and 1556. Some incorrectly say her name was Mary Salt the daughter of Robert Salte and Sanchia St. Andrews, who was the daughter of John St. Andrews. THIS MARY SALTE MARRIED A DIFFERENT THOMAS LATHROP OF YOXALL, STAFFORDSHIRE and had nothing to do with Rev. John Lothrop. But according to the Collections for a History of Staffordshire, Volume 5, Mary Salte married a Thomas Lathrop, son of Michaell Lathropp, who was living in Staffordshire in 1614. The Yorkshire Thomas Lothrop, father of Rev. John Lothrop, died in 1606 and was the son of Robert. Some inaccurate genealogies also give versions where both of these different women were married to a John Howell before either married one Thomas or the other; others inaccurately say that Mary Salte of Staffordshire was the daughter of John Howell and Gauche St. Andrews, daughter of John St. Andrews, rather than the daughter of Robert Salte and the list of errors goes on. Some say Gauche and Sanchia are the same person. PLEASE READ: In the October 1995 issue of The American Genealogist #280, Vol. 70, No. 4, there is an article written by Clifford L. Stott called "Lothrop and House Entries in the Parish Registers of Eastwell, Kent." Stott writes that Maud (last name unknown) was the name of Rev. John's mother. And the landmark original research work for the Lo-Lathrop family done in 1884 correctly and clearly showed the difference between the 2 different men named Thomas Lothrop (or Lathrop for the Staffordshire man.) That source unfortunately thought the 2nd wife of Thomas Lothrop of Cherry Burton and Etton, Yorkshire was named Mary which has contributed to the problem, but even it that were the case, they were 2 different people. After much research, it is plausible to say that Mary/Maud was born in 1556. She was not Mary Howell who appears to be an invented person mixed up with the family of Yoxall and she was most definitely not Mary Salte.
Please see correction by Clifford L. Stott in TAG(1995): 252 cited in Sources and in Memories.

ROBERT CLEMENTS was baptized at Cosby, Leicestershire, England, 14 December 1595. He was the son of Richard Clements (1570-1617) and Agnes (Alice) Fellows (1572-1619.) He married (1) *Lydia Drummer before 1615, who was buried at Ansley, Warwickshire, 12 Mar 1642, and (2) before 1657, Judith, who married after his death, John Whitney of Watertown, Mass, and died in 1669.

Robert Clements probably grew to manhood in the parish of Cosby, receiving an education which developed a mind usual for the times. Although the records show little of him in youth, it cannot be doubted that the great formative influences of the period profoundly affected him.

In 1617, his father, Richard Clements, died and on the 20 October of that year, Robert Clements, then aged 23 years, was granted administration of his estate. (Act Book, Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 1615-1616, Fol: 133.) Unfortunately the papers relating to Richard Clements' estate are lost, only the record of the Commission to administrator being preserved. In this same year, 1617, Robert Clements paid 60 pounds for land in Huncote, where he lived for a number of years. Huncote is the parish of Narborouh, Leicestershire, and near Croft, Leire, Sutton, and Brouhton Astley. At all of these places he had relatives living.

In 1619, his mother Agnes, died and the administration of her estate was granted at Leicester, on 7 August 1619, to William Fellowes of Endery (Act Book, co. Leiester, 1604-1634.) William Fellowes was evidently her eldest son by a former marriage. In the record of the Commission she is called "Agnes Clements of Huncote." She was undoubtedly living with her son, Robert Clements, at the time of her decease.

It is evident from the document "Court of Requests, Miscellaneous Books 134, no folio, Clement v. Dowell," that Robert Clement removed from Huncote to Ansley between 3 April 1620 and 22 November 1624. No record of the purchase of the land has been found, and while it is possible that the land at Ansley was a part of his inheritance from his father, it probably was his wife's portion, as his sons of age joined in its sale. Ansley is a small market town in the northern part of Warwickshire, five miles from Nuneaton, four from Atherstone, and ten from Coventry. He lived in Ansley, Warwickshire, England in about 1624.

In 1634, a Robert Clements purchased land at Broughton and from the fact that his relatives were connected with that parish it seems probably that he was the man.

Robert's wife, Lydia, died and was buried in Ansley. (Ansley was owned by the very famous Lady Godiva. The parish church where the family would have worshipped was St. Laurence, begun in the 12h century. It now houses stunning stained glass windows by artist Karl Parsons.) Within two months Robert sold his land in Witherly and was on his way to America. Robert Clement (at age 47) arrived from England at Salisbury, Massachusetts, aboard his own ship the "Clement and Job" in 1642, and then moved on to Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts, in 1643. Robert was left with eight children, the youngest of which, Mary, 5, was left with relatives in Coventry, Warwickshire, England. She would rejoin her family in America later, at age 15. Records of her marriage here exist, as well as for her witchcraft trial in 1695 which resulted in a three-month jail sentence.

Financial gain could not have been Robert Clements' reason for immigrating to New England. He was well established in England, and held his property there throughout his life in the colonies (an unusual proceeding.) The death of his wife, Lydia, in 1642, may have been the final thing that made him make the move. (Source: Robert Clements Ancestors and descendants, 18.)

Sons Abraham and Daniel formed important families in Ireland and their descendants have always retained the spelling of Clements.

He son Job was the first of the Clements to leave England. In 1639 he was in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The rest of the children came with their father in 1643: Lydia, John, Sarah, Mary, and *Robert.

He was among the first settlers of Haverhill, Massachusetts, 1643. He was a tanner and pioneer of Haverhill, Massachusetts, and Clements Island. He was influential and wealthy in that community, and the owner of the first grist mill. He was one of the five to take the deed of the town from the Passagut and Saggahew Indians in 1642:

"KNOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS-- That wee, Pssaquo and Saggahew with ye consent of Passaconoway, have sold unto ye inhabitants of pentuckett, all ye lands we have in Pentuckett: that is eight myles in length from ye little Rivver in Pentuckett westward: six myles in length from ye aforesaid Rivver northward: and six myles in length from ye aforesaid Rivver eastward, with ye Ileand and ye Rivver that ye ileand stand in as far in length as ye land lyes by as formerly espressed; that is, fourteen myles in length: And wee, ye said Passaquo and Saggahew, with, ye consent of Passaconnaway, have sold unto ye said inhabitants all ye riht that wee, or any other of us have in ye said ground and Ileand and river: nd we warrant it against all or any other Indians whatsoever, unto ye said Inhabitants of pentuckett: and to their heires and assignes forever:

Dated ye fifteenth day of November, Ann. Dom. 1642

Witness, our hands and seales to the bargayne of sale ye day and year above written (in ye presents of us) wee ye said passaquo and SaggeHew have received in hand, for & in consideration of ye same, three pounds & ten shillings.

He was the first Deputy of Haverhill to the General Court (1647-1653); he held offices of Associate Judge and County Commissioner. He was made a freeman in 1645. Robert Clements was early appointed to give the oath of fidelity to the inhabitants of Haverhill. He was recorded as being "a man of rare integrity and superior talents." He must have been an innkeeper in 1653, when he was given permission by the Salisbury court to sell wine in Haverhill. He owned the first grist mill built in Haverhill.

He eventually came to own an island in the Merrimack River that is still known as Clements Island. Robert Clements for a long time occupied a prominent position in the town. Several generations lived there. (Source: The History of Haverhill, Massachusetts, by George W. Chase, 48-49.)

Of interest is the story of Robert Clements' son, John Clements. Sometime after 1556 John Clements returned to England. It does not seem probable that he went with the intention of staying there, as he left his wife and four little daughters in New England, but he later made up his mind to remain and joined his brothers, Abraham and Daniel, in Ireland. Consequently he wrote to his youngest brother, Robert, and desired him to come over to England as an escort to the family he had left behind, and offered as an inducement that if he would come and stop that his brethren would do well by him. Robert Clements, Jr., was about twenty-four and had himself a wife and three children; he concluded to accept John's offer and with both families set sail for England in the spring of 1658.

On the voyage over, the ship was captured by the Spaniards, and they were all taken captive into Spain. With the exception of one of John's daughters, all escaped and finally reached London, going from there to Ireland.

In the spring of 1659, Robert, Jr. returned to New England with his family. His father had died the September preceding and while leaving to John a share in the English property with his other sons, Abraham and Daniel, he left to Robert only £20 of the rent of that property, and Robert may have concluded that New England promised him more than Old England.

Sometime, before July 1659, John Clements with his wife and daughters, excepting the one left "in Spaine," were sadly drowned in a shipwreck on their trip back to New England as John had decided to return. John had property in New England, and so we find that: "John Clements, late of Haverhill, being by God's providence cast away and dyeing intestate, the 21st of July 1659, Mr. Samuel Symonds and Major Gen'l Denison Granted Administration to Rob't Clements, Ipswich court next he to bring in an inventory unto the sayd Court and then the Court to take further order therein." (April Term, 1659.) "Whereas the Hon'ble Mr. Samuel Symonds and Major Gen'U Denison Granted Administration vnto Robert Cements of the estate of his Brother John Clements until this Court, and then to bring in an inventory, wch now he hath done, wch amounts to six score and ten pounds. This courte doeth confirm the power of Administration vnto the sayd Robert Clements of the estate of his Brother John Clements & the Courte of March nexte to take further order therein." (September term, 1659.)

John had no money and had not paid him as he had promised (he may have lost it in Spain.) John's brother Robert, Jr., asked for reimbursement from John's estate for taking John's family to Ireland (via Spain,) at John's request. He asked for expenses and time lost which was a whole year. The article doesn't say if he was reimbursed or not. His brothers said that he should be reimbursed from John's estate.

Robert Clements, Sr. died on his farm where he first settled in Haverhill, 29 September 1658, at the age of about 63. His will was dated 6 September 1658. Not all of his children were in Haverhill. He mentions his wife; sons: Job, John, Abraham, and Daniel; sons-in-law: Moses Pingrin, Abraham Morrill, and John Osgood; "to my children's children and that are in New England; to Mr. Ward, our minister."

Clements in New England:

They first were colonizers in a wild country and in constant danger from the incursions of Indians, than as worthy citizens of the great Republic.

The family in this Country knew the names of all of his children and that Daniel and Abraham went to Ireland with Cromwell's army and that the family became prominent there and was elevated to the British peerage. ...

William came to America in 1633 on the ship "Mary and James". He was one of the Merchant Adventures who financed the Mayflower and Plymouth Colony and one of only a handful who actually migrated. He was very wealthy and built a house next to Miles Standish in Plymouth.
William Collier was born in England about 1581-5, based on the date of his marriage. He was a purveyor grocer in England being apprenticed to William Russell, becoming a member of the Grocer's Company of London on March 3, 1627/8.
William came to the Plymouth Colony in 1626 to determine why the Pilgrims had not lived up to their agreement to ship furs, grain and any other available commodities to London in payment of the money the Merchant Adventurers gave them for boat passage, food and supplies. He purchased some land at the time of his visit. When he returned to London he sold his businesses and in 1633 he returned to Plymouth to live. He came on the "Mary and James" vessel with 196 passengers. with him were his four daughters, ranging in age from 17-23 years old, servants and three of his London employees, John, Job and David Col. there is no mention of his wife, so she either died or stayed in London with her sons and came over at a later date.
He had two wives, some say three. He married Jane Clarke May 1611 in St Olave Southwark, England. She is said to be the sister of thomas Clarke and probably daughter of John Clarke and Elizabeth Hobson. the records also indicate he had another wife, who was known only as Mrs. William Collier. the Plymouth Colony records indicated he married a widow named Jane, who had a daughter named Elizabeth and granddaughter named Sarah (Walker) Warren, in Plymouth Colony.Some say he was married to Jane Curtis.
Upon arrival in New England "he was made a freeman at once." (2) He immediately took a prominent position in the Plymouth Colony and was Magistrate and Assistant Governor of Plymouth Colony for 28/18 years.(1) He was tax Assessor, 1634 and served on many committees for assigning and laying out land, for building a meeting house, on highways, to revise the laws, etc. He was a member of the Council for War at Duxbury, 1642 and later was one of the two plenipotentiaries at the first meeting of the Congress of the United Colonies in 1643." (4, p 105)
He was a businessman and assisted in the settlement of accounts with the Merchant Adventures." (1) "William Collier took the liberal side in the attempt to establish religious toleration in the Colonies in 1646." (4, p 105) "He was among the first purchasers of land in Duxbury, Massachusetts and was the first settler in Duxbury. (1) In 1661, he sold his house and all of his land in Duxbury, with the provision that he and his wife would retain ownership until their deaths, the sale being to Benjamin Bartlett, the husband of his granddaughter Sarah Brewster Bartlett." (3, p 268) "He was the wealthiest man in the colony, as he paid the highest taxes. He died in 1671 at the age of 81 years. His grave is not marked as at that time they did not want the Indians to know that a member of the colony had died.

WILLIAM GREENE came to New England on an unknown vessel at an unknown date, but by or before 1640, for in 'that year, he was recorded as an inhabitant of Charlestown. Several men, including William, were asked to investigate the surrounding areas for settlement, eventually founding Woburn, originally named Charlestown until 1642. They formed a church, assigning a minister by the town leadership. It became part of an on-going controversy about the control of churches by the local governments across Massachusetts. It was difficult for the Massachusetts officials to become too involved because because Woburn lands were considered 'remote'. It was a"watery swamp" difficult to travel through and covered with "an unknown woods". Crops were difficult initially. Further controversies arose about the boundaries between Charleston Woburn, eventually resolving them by 1651.
By 1643, WILLIAM GREENE married, probably at Charlestown, HANNAH CARTER (see Carter, p. 145). She had become a member of Charlestown Church on September 2, 1639, and WILLIAM was admitted to that organization, on November 9, 1643, and was made a freeman on May29, 1644. His father-in-law THOMAS CARTER, senior, of Charlestown had received a grant of one lot in what became Woburn, and had purchased an adjacent equal amount ___ the whole tract totaling one hundred and thirty-five acres. On March 30, 1647, CARTER acknowledged a deed of gift which transferred one half of this tract to WILLIAM GREENE and he presently deeded the other half to his son Capt. JOHN CARTER.

!Wealtha was the first in the family to join the Church, she was baptized during the winter of 1832 in a hole in the ice. Ira wanted her to wait to be baptized becouse she was pregnent. After the baby was born, Wealtha was baptized. Wealtha died and was burried on the Eaton Farm near Nauvoo, Illinois. She was also Baptised in Nauvoo but we don't have a date other than 1832. So she was re-baptised by Proxy the 18th of September, 1967 in the Salt Lake Temple. Life in Farmersville was not all work. Wealtha and Ira were often drawn to social events such as annual election day, town meetings, quilting bees, and temperance meetings. Traveling was sometimes tedious but everyone looked forward to being togeather on these occasions. Wealtha and Ira also looked forward to the visits of traveling peddlers who came seasonally. These men brought eagerly awaited news of family members left behind in other parts of the territory. When in 1830 Elders Oliver Cowdery, Peter Whitmer, Jr., Ziba Peterson, and Parley P. Pratt were in the vacinity visiting the Catteraugus Indians, preaching with a book which represented a history of their progenitors, the Indian race. Wealtha purchased a copy of the book and was not long in reading it. She said, "That's what we have been looking for." Being thoroughly convinced of its origin, she desired to be baptized immedeatily. But was convinced to wait untill Rhoana was born.
