(2) BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Having lost her first husband, Edward Southworth, Alice Carpenter traveled to New England on the ship "Ann," arriving in July, 1623. Her marriage to Governor William Bradford reportedly was the 4th marriage in the colony. She was not able to write. She had a reputation for having a strong personality, deep faith and was of great influence in the colony. Robert Charles Anderson in Volume 3, "The Great Migration Begins," at pages 1709 - 1715, states that Constant Southworth and Thomas Southworth, sons of Alice by her first marriage, arrived in New England in 1628. No explanation is given as to why they did not come with their mother in 1623.

Alice Carpenter was born sometime between 1585 and 1589 probably in Somerset, England. She was the daughter of Alexander Carpenter (1560- 1612) and Priscilla Dillen (1562-1644.) The family moved to Holland to escape religious persecution. In Holland, she met William Bradford (who would later become her second husband). However, Alice first married Edward Southworth on 28 May 1613 in Leiden, Holland. Edward and Alice became parents to Constant (1615) and Thomas (1616). After the death of William Bradford's first wife, he wrote to Alice and invited her to America. Alice Carpenter Southworth arrived on the ship Anne in 1623 and married William Bradford on 14 August 1623. Three children were born to Alice and William Bradford: William, Mercy and Joseph. Alice Carpenter Southworth Bradford passed away 5 April 1670 at 80 years of age.

See also BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: See sketch by Donald Lines Jacobus and Edgar Francis Waterman in "Hale, House and Related Families..." (Reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, MD, 1978, and first published in 1952 by The Connecticut Historical Society, pages 763/9) and also data included in "A Story of One Line of Treats from England to Connecticut, 1454 - 1781," by Elizabeth Thompson Schack (privately published, New York, NY, 2000). He was baptized under the name of Trott, married under the name of Trett; his children were baptized by the names of Trott and Tratt, and he was called Treat when he died. He signed documents with the spellings of Treat and Treate. The family lived in the hamlet of Trendle (now in the parish of Trull) in the large parish
of Pitminster, less than five miles south of Taunton, in Somerset. Richard was a "well-rooted and well-to-do countryman," according to Somerset historian Joan D. Peden. At the time, he owned one messuage and one virgate of land as well as a cottage and its appurtanances in the tithing of South Trendle. He owned other lands in addition, as well as two cottages with courtyards. The main residence of the family, known as Amberd House, still stands in Pitminster [in hamlet of Trendle, now Trull]. It was purchased by his grandfather in about 1533 and was inherited by Richard from his father Robert. Once settled in America, Richard disposed of the property. Here all of his children were born. He emigrated to New England after the baptism of his youngest child in June 1637 and was living in Wethersfield, CT by 1641 when the entry of his land holdings was made there. He had a large tract of land at Wethersfield known as the "farm of Nayog," which bordered on the Conneticut River. He bought at least seven other dwelling places and additional lots of land, later either selling them or giving some of them to his children. In 1643 he was a juror and he served as Deputy for Wethersfield to the General Court at the sessions starting in Apr 1644 and going through 1657 and was Assistant of the Colony from May 1658 to May 1665. Richard Treat was named as a Patentee of the Royal Charter of Connecticut in 1662. He made his will on 13 Feb 1668/9 and the inventory of his estate was taken on 3 Mar 1669/70. He had amassed an estate
of considerable size for those times. [For additional information, view the biographical sketches about Richard Treat or Trott attached as stories to this record (9M4J-G4V).]

It is hoped that this will be the final surviving record once all mergers possible have been completed. THANK YOU!!. See also BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: See notes for his father, John Webster, concerning origins in England, emigrating to New England in 1634 and settling first in Cambridge (New Towne), Massachusetts Bay Colony, and participating in the trek led by Rev. Thomas Hooker in 1636 to a new settlement on the Connecticut River eventually named Hartford, Connecticut. A biographical sketch is included by William Holcomb Webster and Rev. Melville Reuben Webster in "History and Genealogy of the Gov. John Webster family of Connecticut," (Rochester, NY, 1915), at pages 23/9. He apparently did not marry until about 1652, when he would have been about 33. He had settled in Middletown, Connecticut and upon the organization of that town in Sept., 1651, he was chosen as the Recorder. He represented Middletown in the General Court of Connecticut at various times from Sept., 1653 to Oct., 1658, when he moved back to Hartford. The homelot in Hartford, upon which he then built his residence that was still standing in 1900, was at about 1915 Retreat Avenuese. Subsequently an apartment house was erected on the site
and was given the name of "The Barnard." Robert Webster is listed among the names of the 15 brethren in full communion when the Second Church of Hartford was set off as a distinct organization from the original First Church. On May 9, 1672, Lt. Robert Webster was granted 300 acres of land by the Court of Elections at Hartford. In Oct., 1673, Lt. Robert Webster was named by the General Court of Connecticut to a committee to survey lands at Mattalock. It appears that to some extent he was involved in serving in King Philip's War in 1675. He died
on 31 May 1676 and was buried 2 Jun 1676. His will was dated 20 May 1676 and his estate was valued at 670 pounds. His widow, Susannah, was given sole charge of the estate as the executrix. Apparently there were debts in his estate, as his widow in her will 29 years later refers to paying the debts of "my husband, Robert Webster."

VIEW BIOGRAPHICAL ITEMS IN STORY (MEMORIES) FOR THIS RECORD, LC8T-HWW. ** See also BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: sketch on Nicholas Davis and family by Robert Charles Anderson and the Sanborns in "The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England 1634 - 1635 (New England Historic Genealogical Society, Boston, Massachusetts, 2001), Vol. 2, Pages 304/9 and brief sketch by Charles Edward Banks in "History of York, Maine" (Reprint in 1967 by Regional Publishing Co., Baltimore, Maryland, of 1931 publication), Vol. 1, Pages 223/4. Nicholas Davis and his wife Sarah were living in Stepney, Middlesex, England at the time of the baptisms of their sons Nicholas and Joseph in 1620 and 1621, and they had a certificate from Stepney Parish when they enrolled on 22 Mar 1634/5 at London as passengers for New England on the Planter. Accompanying them were their son Joseph, aged 13, and ward William Lock, aged 6. It is likely that daughter Mary, who would have been about 9 at the time, was with them also.
The occupation of Nicholas Davis in England was tailor. The first home of the Davis family in New England was in Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony, where he held land and cow allotments. The family apparently moved to Woburn, Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1642, where the wife Sarah died in 1643. Nicholas Davis was remarried a few months later to Mrs. Elizabeth Isaac, probably the widow of Joseph Isaac. He sold his property in Woburn on 7 Jul 1648 to William Reade of Muddy River and probably moved to York, Maine at that time. He soon established himself as a tavern keeper in Lower Town where the main street leads to Stage Island. On 22 Nov 1652, Nicholas Davis was in the list of York men who submitted to Massachusetts government and were thus eligible for freemanship. He signed a 1662 petition from the inhabitants of York County to the Massachusetts Bay General Court regarding a jurisdictional dispute.

Walter Newce (stepfather) may have adopted her, hence the confusion with Newce/Chenery last name


Margaret was the daughter of John A Chenery II and his wife Elizabeth Norwich. John died in 1575 and Elizabeth remarried to Walter Newce, who adopted Margaret as his own. Many Genealogy records list her name as "Newce" and others as "Chenery", but Chenery was her given name.

She was the granddaughter of John Chenery I and his wife Agnes?

She married George Moody (Modye) on 12 Oct 1581.

From Georges Find A Grave Memorial:

George Moody I, married first, about 1581, Margaret Newce of Gazeley, county Suffolk; she had nine children and was buried at Moulton 25 Jan. 1602/3.

Whether he was related to the Bratts of Norwegian nobility, can not be ascertained. The Bratt family lived in Bergen, Norway, before the early part of the fifteenth century, when it moved to the northern part of Gudbrandsdalen. It had a coat of arms until about the middle of the sixteenth century. Since that time the Bratts belong to the Norwegian peasantry. They have a number of large farms in Gudbrandsdalen, Hedemarken, Toten, and Land.

WILLIAM BREWSTER of Scrooby was born about 1534 probably in Doncaster, Yorkshire, England, the son William Brewster and Maude Mann. [His date of birth is estimated based on the birth date of his son Elder William Brewster.]

A William Brewster witnessed the will of his uncle Christopher Mann on 13 Jan 1558 with Thomas and John Simkinson of Doncaster. Christopher Mann was the brother of William's mother. [His will is not only helpful in determining her maiden name it also helps us identify the mother of William Brewster the Mayflower passenger, Mary Smythe. Christopher's will was witnessed by John Symkinson who was the first husband of Mary Smythe, the mother of Thomas Sinkinson of Hull by her first husband and the mother of William Brewster the Mayflower passenger by her second husband William Brewster of Scrooby.]

He was named in the will of Bartholomew Bryan of Scrooby dated 6 May 1564 as William Brewster "dwelling in Scrooby", Nottinghamshire, England, a small village on the River Ryton near Bawtry in the northern part of the English county of Nottinghamshire. Scrooby is located just seven miles South of Doncaster and is about one hundred and fifty-four miles north of London.

He married first, about 1565, Mary (Smythe) Simkinson, daughter William Smythe of Stainforth parish in Hatfield. She was sister of John Smythe of Hull and widow of John Simkinson of Wakefield and Doncaster. With her previous husband she had two children:
•«tab»Dorothy Symkinson
•«tab»Thomas Simkinson who died in 1612 in Hull.

Mary Smythe and William Brewster had one child:
•«tab»William Brewster, born in 1566 or 1567 in Doncaster, England and died 10 April 1644 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony. He married Mary, whose parents are unknown.

According to an undated proceeding addressed to Sir Nicholas Bacon, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal (1558-1579) Mary (Smythe) Brewster and William Brewster sued Francis Hobson. She is identified as the late wife of John Symkinson late of Doncaster, Yorkshire, England and she testified that her late husband was seized of lands in Doncaster and in his lifetime he did convey these lands to her when she was his wife for the term of her life and afterwards before he died at Doncaster. [Since the proceeding is undated we only know that this event occurred during the career of Sir Bacon between 1558 and 1579.]

Mary probably died by 1567, [based on the estimated birth dates of the three children of William Brewster and his second wife,] and William Brewster married second Prudence ______ shortly after the birth of his first son. [It has been postulated that her maiden name may have been Peck, Perkins or Stocton but not with any confidence.] William Brewster and Prudence ______ had only three children. (specifically listed on NEHGR Vol 124 p 251.)

"In 1575 Archbishop Grindal of York addressing William as "our trusty and well-beloved servant," commissioned the senior William Brewster as bailiff and receiver at Scrooby manor, an extensive lordship embracing hundreds of farms and many village round about." He collected manorial fees, rents and fines and could act as magistrate in disputes.

He also became master of the local station of the royal post. In our day a postmaster mainly deals with letters and parcels and money orders, but in William's day he dealt almost entirely with horses. Letters then posted were mainly governmental correspondence, sent by members of the Court. He did not live in a little house on a side street, but had a grand mansion. Scrooby Manor House included a large brick stable, blacksmith shop, kennels, dovecotes and a granary, brewery and bake shop. His duty was to supply horses to all travelers who desired to hire them and to operate a tavern to refresh the delivery men traveling on the Great North Road. He was appointed by the government and had what was considered a handsome salary, at the time, namely 2 shillings a day, besides what travelers would pay him if they stayed for a night or so at Scrooby Manor on their journey.

William Brewster of Scrooby died 1590 in Scrooby, Nottinghamshire, England.

Children of William Brewster and Prudence ______:

1.«tab»JAMES BREWSTER born say 1568 probably in Scrooby died 14 Jan 1613 in Sutton, Nottinghamshire, England. He married Mary Welbeck who died 7 Apr 1637 in Sutton, Nottinghamshire, England and they had four daughters:
•«tab»Grace who married William Glaive,
•«tab»Susanna and
•«tab»Judith who married Edward Oldfied.[6]

He is proposed to be the James Brewster who was vicar of Sutton cum Laude. He matriculated at St John's College at Cambridge in 1582, succeeded Henry Brewster (his uncle) as vicar at Sutton on Lound in 1594. His brother William Brewster testified on his behalf.[1][7][7][1] Although it has not been decisively proven that this James is identical to the man of the same name who was vicar, the evidence is fairly strong that he was. [8]

2.«tab»PRUDENCE BREWSTER born say 1570 probably in Scrooby and probably died before 1609 in Everton, Nottinghamshire, England when two of her children were wards to William Brewster (see below). She married Robert Pecke whose will was dated 1598 in Everton, Nottinghamshire, England. He possibly had a second wife named Jun Jenyver if he was the man of the same name who married in 15 Jun 1589 in Loude, three miles from Scrooby. It is unclear which children were from which wife but in his will he names: Robert the eldest, Ann, Prudence, William, Thomas and George. His children Robert Peck and Prudence Pecke were wards of their supposed uncle William Brewster at Ledyen.[1]

3.«tab»JOHN BREWSTER born about 1572 and who in 1595 and 1613 was identified in the town of Myssen in Nottinghamshire, England where he was twice fined. John vanishes, it would seem, in the town of Myssen after 1613. This is last date and place we find evidence for him.[9][1] Note: this son John is often confused with Rev John Brewster of Surrey discussed by Mary Coffin Johnson in The Higleys and Their Ancestry, An Old Colonial Family. That John is related to the Strong family and has nothing to do with the Brewster family of Scrooby.

John G Hunt published an account of the family of William Brewster of Duncaster in NEHGR Volume 124 p 253 in 1970. This was a follow-up article to his previously published treatment of this family published in 1965 in TAG Volume 41 p 1-5[2] In 2014 the General Society of Mayflower Descendants published the latest research on Elder William Brewster and the authors call these two articles the current state of research on this topic.

John G Hunt lists no children named Millicent (Brewster) Eames, Elizabeth Brewster, Henry Brewster, Edward Brewster, or Amy (Brewster) Weld. As stated above 2014 the General Society of Mayflower Descendants published the latest research on Elder William Brewster and they called these two articles by John G Hunt the current state of research on this topic. Therefore, all profiles of children except for the Mayflower passenger and the three others outlined by John G Hunt in NEHGR and TAG should be removed.

William Payne (1665-1648) &Ann/Agnes Neves (1563-1645)

According to Wisconsin Page Pioneers:

"It has been conclusively proven that the Paine family of which Phoebe was a member used the same coat of arms after coming to America as the family of William Paine "Lord of the Manor" of Nowton which he bought from his nephew Anthony Paine in 1607 for £3000. By this evidence they are shown to be not only the descendants of Sir Thomas Paine of Leicester but that they were of the Suffolk County branch and of that particular descendant who came here. It was here at Nowton that William Paine held his first court October 6, 1609 and his last in 1621 when he sold to Sir Daniel le Ligne."Of the 150 persons who emigrated at the time William Paine, brother of Phoebe, and son and daughter of the William of Nowton, scarce half a dozen claimed the title of Gentleman, or had the prefix 'Mr.' a title which he was readily accorded as the son and heir of one who had been 'Lord of the Manor.'

William Stebbins (1540-1602) & rose rugle

William Stebbins (William ) was born in 1540 in Bocking, Essex, England. William was born about 1542 in Woodham, Martiner Parrish, Essex, England. A renown American genealogist, Frank Farnsworth Starr, whileworking for the late James J Goodwin of Hartford, found the records of the baptisms of Rowland and Martin Stebbing in the gragmentary Parish Registers of St. Mary's Church, Bocking, Essex County.

The Bocking Registers also contained references to the Fitch and Goodwin families whe settled in Connecticut, showing that a number of residents of Bockingjoined the Puritan emigration to New England in the 1630's. Mr. Starr subsequently edited the Parish Registers of Bocking and they were printedin a very small edition at Mr. Goodwin's expense. After pointing out that the existing Registers are sadly lacking in cointinuity (the Baptisms began in July 1561, with gaps from March 1571 to May 1583, from April 1588 to October 1592, from October 1599 to October 1602, and from 1639 to 1655; the Burials began in November 1558, with gaps from August 1580 to September 1583 and from 1627 to 1655), he lists the following seven Stebbing records :

1561 Gulielmus Stebinge sepultus est 28 May

1592 Rowlandus Stebing filius Thomae baptizatus 5 November

1594 Marinus Stebing filius Thomae baptizamus 28 April

1603 Johannes Leavens et Elizabetha Stebbin nupti 16 June

1618 Rowlandus Stebbing & Sara Whiting nupti 30 November

1624 Gulielmus Stebbing filius Martini Stebbingsepultus est 3 September

1625 Elizabetha Stebbing filia Rowlandi Stebbing sepultus est 15 June

The parish of Bocking is bounded on the south by that of Braintree.In this parish, Mr. Thomas Hooker, the future founder of Hartford,Connecticut, often preached during his ministry in Essex, and among the inhabitants of Braintree were Mr. William Wadsworth, Mr. John Talcott,and the families, who came to New England on the LION in the summer of1632, and accompanied Mr. Thomas Hooker to Hartford in 1636. The parish Registers of St. Michael's Church at Braintree prior to 1660 have unfortunately been lost, but, as will be seen below, there were alsomembers of the Stebbing family in Braintree in the 1620's.

William Stebbins.(1567-1668) & Mary (1569-d/c)

William Stebbing of Black Notley,. Essex, had five children baptized in that parish between 11 November 1593 and 18 March 1603/4. There is no burial recorded of him, his wife, or any of his children in the quite complete Registers of Black Notley, so we may safely assume that he left the parish and moved elsewhere after March 1603/4. The rest, however, is conjecture. We think he is the William Stebbing mentioned in the Braintree Vestry Book under date of 6 September 1619 when "Notice given by William Stebbing of a wench intertained at John Beckwiths dwelling in Cursing Green that is supposed to have a greate belly which the Constables have warning to look after."

If the identification is correct, it is likely that William Stebbing had more children born after his removal to Braintree. It is also probable that William Stebbing was related, more or less closely, to his contemporary Thomas Stebbing of Bocking, father of Rowland and Martin who settled in Springfield. But it must be remembered that though Braintree adjoined Bocking on the north and Black Notley on the south, we have no proof of the identity of William Stebbing of Black Notley with William of Braintree, and because of the absence of Braintree Parish Registers before 1660, we have no record of the burial of William or his wife, and none of the baptisms of younger children he may have had at Braintree. The name of William's wife has not been found

[In Sweden, there is an umlaut over the first A making the name sound like HOE-Kahn. When he came to America everyone pronounced it like Hogan so it gradually became the accepted sound and spelling.]

Hakan was born in Tarstad Tirup,Sweden in1826. He was the first child of his parents and their home was an 8' X 10' hut with a thatched roof and a dirt floor. When Hakan was just 8 years old and there were 4 children, his father told him he would have to go out to work and take care of himself because there were too many children to feed and they were very poor. The family had a total of 7 children: 3 boys, 4 girls.

He was small for his age and had brown eyes and black hair. When he went looking for work people would look at him and say he was too small and too young to be able to do anything. He finally came to the door of an old couple who listened to his story and then said he could live with them and herd their geese. He wore wooden shoes in the winter and went barefoot in the summer. His food consisted of coarse rye bread and clabber milk, some potatoes and sometimes some fish. He got no schooling.

When he was about 15 years old, he went with an uncle to learn the miller trade, making grains into flour. After 15 years he finally got a diploma as a miller. He worked very hard and carried the heavy sacks on his back until his back became bent and was that way the rest of his life.

One night his cousin, Anders Beckstrom, came and asked him to go to a meeting with him. He was sure the men giving the meeting were Mormons and there had been so much said against them that Anders wanted to know what kind of people they were. So Hakan and Anders went to the meeting and the young men kept going to the meetings and they were baptized into the church September 17, 1857. When their families found out they had become Mormons, they were very hurt and upset and disowned the men and told them to leave and not come back. So they left and never saw their families again.

Neither one of them could keep a job now because as soon as their employers found out they were Mormons, they were fired. Finally, they were able to get enough money to go to America, sailing on the ship "William Tapscott", after a voyage of about weeks arriving in New York in 1859. The immigrants were escorted to Castle Gardens then traveled by boat & train to Florence, Nebraska. The accommodations were very poor and they had to ride in stock cars.

The arrived in Florence on the 25th of May then began the journey from Florence on June 9, 1859, traveling by handcart in the George Rowley company to the Salt Lake Valley arriving on September 4th of 1859 when Hakan was 33 years old.

He found work as a miller in Farmington then later moved to Mt. Pleasant where he could make more money. His cousin, Anders was a blacksmith so he set up a blacksmith shop in Mt. Pleasant and lived there the rest of his life. In Mt. Pleasant, Hakan was asked to help survey the town into city lots and was given a lot of his choice for pay.

In 1862, the Church asked for volunteers to go back to Nebraska and help bring back immigrants. He was still single so he volunteered to go. His Bishop gave him a blessing and promised him he'd return with 2 women\emdash he was now a 37 yr. old bachelor. When he got to Florence, he was assigned to assist 2 young women from Sweden and an older sister who would be their chaperone. On the trip, he heard the 2 girls talking about how they had no friends or family in Salt Lake so they didn't know where to go and what to do. Hakan invited them to go to Mt. Pleasant and they agreed as both had fallen in love with him.

After arriving in Mt. Pleasant, Hakan asked Hannah Nelson to marry him which she did. But only 3 weeks later she died. Hakan was very lonely now so he went to Cecelia Swenson and asked her to marry him, which she did. Hakan was 37 and Cecelia was 22. They were married by Bishop Seeley, the 2nd of Novermber, 1863 in Mt. Pleasant. Then on 12 March 1864 they were sealed in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City.

Their first 7 children were born in Mt. Pleasant and the other 5 were born in Hyrum, Utah where they went for better land for farming. Later the family moved to the Snake River Valley area to Salem outside of Rexburg. They worked hard to dig a canal and build a dam to water the land. They had to fight off big mosquitoes and had to keep blankets on their horses to protect them from the mosquitoes so the horses wouldn't run away.

Haken only lived in the Salem area 6 years before he died from lung trouble caused by the dust caused by the milling of the grain. He died in 30 October 1892 at the age of 66 and is buried in the Rexburg City Cemetery.

One of his sons was called on a mission to Sweden and he found Hakan's family. None of the family would listen to him preach the Gospel because they were still angry and hurt about the Church taking Hakan away from them.

While still Lord Kilmaurs, this nobleman was one of the principal adherents of the English Court in Scotland, and accepted a pension from King Henry VIII. He was one of the party which joined the force of the Earls of Arran and Lennox on November 23, 1524, when they took possession of Edinburgh, and endeavoured to withdraw the young king James V from the Queen Mother.

He was appointed Lord High Treasurer of Scotland on June 26, 1526, but held the office only until October 29 the same year.

In 1538 he accompanied David Bethune, Bishop of Mirepoix, afterwards a celebrated cardinal, to France to conclude a treaty for James V's marriage with Mary of Guise.

Lord Kilmaurs succeeded as 4th Earl of Glencairn upon the death of his father just before 1542, and he and his eldest son, Alexander, now Lord Kilmaurs, were engaged in all the intrigues of the Anglo-Scottish Party at this period of history, and supported the religious Reformers.

In 1542 the earl was taken prisoner by the English at the Battle of Solway Moss and committed to the custody of the Duke of Norfolk, but was released on payment of a ransom of a thousand pounds and subscribing by his own hand to support Henry VIII's project of a marriage between the young Prince Edward and the Scottish Queen. In March 1543 he met with the English ambassador Ralph Sadler and the Earl of Angus at the Blackfriar's Monastery in Edinburgh. Sadler interrogated the Scottish earls on the progress they had made on Henry VIII's projects. Glencairn said he had little silver, but would willingly fight France with 5000 men for Henry. Later on the same day, Glencairn offered to put his promises in writing, and at night he brought them to Sadler. Glencairn added that if he was appointed a keeper of Mary, Queen of Scots, Henry would be sure to have her in his hands one way or another.[1]

Allied with the Earl of Lennox in 1544 he was, with his 500 vassals as spearmen, attacked on Glasgow Muir by Regent Arran and defeated "with great slaughter", his second son amongst the slain. Glencairn managed to flee to Dumbarton, almost alone, and in September he and his son Lord Kilmaurs abandoned the cause of Henry. In November Glencairn, now pardoned by the Regent, was with the latter's army that laid siege to Coldingham, then held by the English, but which was dispersed by an English force from Berwick.

In March 1544 Glencairn and his son renewed their communications with the English government in support of the English Party in Scotland, and is said to have been party to the assassination of Cardinal Bethune. Glencairn died in March 1548, and was then receiving a French pension for loyalty to the Auld Alliance.[2],_4th_Earl_of_Glencairn

Steven (Stephen) Gates was baptized 26 Dec 1597 in Coney Weston, Suffolk, England.[4]

Daniel Cushing, an early resident of Hingham, Mass., left a record of persons who came from Hingham and towns adjacent in County Norfolk, England.[5] The list included Stephen Gates, who came in The Diligent in 1638 from "Old Hingham" with his wife and two children.

That her name was Ann Veare is from the Hingham, England parish register recording their marriage:

"Stephen Gates & Ann Veare - May 5, 1628"

But a 2009 article questions the accuracy of "Veare" and suggests instead that she was Ann Neave.[6]

The first record of a child to them wasn't until 1636 (Hingham England Baptisms):

"Marie Gates, da. Steven & Ann - Oct. 15, 1636"

Seems probably that additional children were born and baptized elsewhere between 1628 and 1636, suggesting that Stephen and family lived elsewhere for many years but returning to Hingham in 1636.

His last four children were baptized 3 May 1646 Hingham MA.

Lee J. Streepey ( reports (2/97) that 'Genealogy of the Chew Family' gives a daughter, Ann Gates, m. ca. 1650 at Hingham, MA John Chew (b. ca. 1650 in NJ) [but Streepey also goes with the subsequently disproven descent from a Thomas Gates].

«b»Life in New England«/b»

Stephen Gates resided initially at Hingham in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and then Lancaster, Mass. in 1656 and finally Cambridge (where he died).

'The Gates blood seems to have been of decided tropical nature. The daughter, Mary, very boldly contradicted the minister in public assembly. Stephen Gates quarrelled with his neighbors, the Whitcombs, was deprived of his constable's staff, and moved away from Lancaster after less than three years residence. ...his sons attempted, without success, to break his will, alledging that their father was not of disposing mind.' By his will Stephen, eldest son, received the house in Cambridge. His widow, Ann, later married Richard Woodward age 45 who came (says Chute) with wife Rose age 50 in 1634 - Rose died in 1662 and he then married Ann and he lived until 16 Feb 1665, Ann resuming the surname Gates after his death.

He was buried Oct 1662 in Lancaster, Worcester, Massachusetts.[citation needed] (Others say Cambridge.)[citation needed]

Edward J. Harrison, "Ann Neave, wife of Stephen Gates, 1638 Immigrant to Massachusetts," in NEHGR, Boston, MA: NEHGS 163(2009):134-136 -- makes the case that Ann, wife of Stephen Gates was named Neave, not Veare, noting the presence of Neave (31 times), but not of Veare in the Hingham parish record. The author found a baptism of Ann Neave in Hingham, day of Thomas Neave, 16 Jun 1611, which is a bit young, but possible. The author admits she may have been baptized before the 1600 date when the parish records began.

Edward J. Harrison, "The English Origins of Stephen Gates, 1638 Immigrant to Massachusetts," in NEHGR, Boston, MA: NEHGS, 160(2006):7-14 -- proposes that Stephen Gates was son of Eustace Gates and Rose Wright (dau of Martin and Elizabeth ----- Wright); also proposes that "Veare" as maiden name of Ann was a transcription error.

Mary was born in England, probably in the Sprauston, Norfolk area. Her family name might have been Woodmansey. She married John Cutler in England and they had seven children by 1637. It is claimed that they were Puritans and were persecuted to the extent that they were forced to leave England. Early in 1637 they emigrated to New England, settling in Hingham, Massachusetts in June. Her husband John died in February of 1638, and she was left destitute. A relative of her husband, Deacon Robert Cutler of Charlestown took some of her older sons to raise.

After being a widow for twelve years, she married, as his second wife, Thomas Hewett of Hingham. Hewett died in 1670 and some of John's sons went to court to recover some of the land that had belonged to their father. They must have been successful, for later that year they sold some of that same land. Mary died on December 12, 1681 in Reading. The record reads: "Mary Hervet, mother of Thomas Cutler"

Joanna Strutt was the daughter of John and Catherine Strutt of Glemsford, Suffolk, England, the town in which she was probably born. On September 22, 1560, she married John Belgrave at Glemsford, at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin. After the marriage, they settled in Leverington, in Cambridgeshire, where John was a yeoman, or farmer. They had nine children at Leverington. Joanna must have died of complications following the birth of her last child, Barbara, who was baptised June 27, 1577. Joanna and her daughter were buried in the churchyard of St Leonard's Church in Leverington, Joanna on August 14 of that year, and her daughter Barbara on September 17.

Arien Allertsen Roosa was from Herwijnen, Gelderland, Netherlands. He was the son of Albert Heymans Roosa and Wyntje Ariens de Jongh. Arien had four brothers, Heiman, Jan, Aert, and Guert (died young), and five sisters, Eyke, Jannetje, Neeltie, Marritje, and Annetje.

On 16 April 1660, he and his family set sail for New Netherland aboard de Bonte Koe. They settled in Wildwyck (later Kingston, Ulster, New York). Three years later, in 1663, the village was attacked by Native Americans and Arien's eldest sister and another of the Roosa children were taken prisoners. Nevertheless, Arien and his brother, Jan, ventured out to work in the fields without permission and were caught and fined by the Schout (sheriff). Arien was still a minor at that point.

New Netherland was taken over by the English and tensions ran high between the English soldiers and the Dutch burghers throughout the colony. In 1664, Arien, his father, and Ariaen Huybertsen got into a fight with the English guard over a canoe that belonged to the Roosas. Neither party could speak the other's language very well and the conflict became physical. In 1665, Arien's father was summoned to court and many residents thought he would be arrested. A crowd, including Arien, assembled but the situation ended peacefully. Arien told the court that he was on his way to the minister with a message, saw something going on at the guardhouse, stopped briefly, and then continued his errand. In 1667, the Esopus mutiny took place as reaction to the abuses of the English commander at the Esopus, Captain Brodhead. Arien and his father were later charged as being among the key players in the mutiny. The governor banished the two Roosas and the others for their part but later reversed the sentences.

Arien married Maria Everts Pels. Maria was the daughter of Evert Everts Pels and Jannetje Sijmons and the sister of at least two brothers, Evert and Symen, and at least two sisters, Rabecca and Elisabet.

Arie and Maria had:

1. Aldert Roosa, married Petronella van Etten (the daughter of Jacob Jansen van Etten and Annetje Adriaens-see Van Etten family) 21 Jun 1696 in Kingston, Ulster, New York.[1]

2. Jannetje Roosa, married Jan van Etten, died before 22 Jun 1731.[2]

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.  ...
