225 (Derby) Emigrated with his wife Alice and four children, settling in Salem, now Danvers, in the vicinity of Whipple and Hathorne's hill. Hutchinson, Richard (I2238)
226 (Derby) In 1636, Mr. Hutchinson received a grant of 60 acres of land from the town, and Apr. 3, following, 20 acres more. In the same year he was appointed on a committee to survey Jeffrey's Creek (now Manchester), and Mackerell Cove. April 17, 1637, it was voted "that in case Ric'd Huchenson shall sett up plowing within 2 years he may bane 20 acres more to bee added to his pportion." This appears to be in consequence of the great scarcity of ploughs, there being but thirty-seven in all the settlements. Hutchinson, Richard (I2238)
227 (Derby): In 1648, at Salem Village, he bought of Elias Stileman,his farm of 150 acres, for £15. The records do not show him to have been officially engaged in many matters of public trust, but he was undoubtedly a man of indomitable perseverance, great vigor of mind and physical endurance, a strict disciplinarian in religious affairs, a thorough agriculturist, and as he had amassed a large landed estate, he had, before the close of his life, divided much of his property among his children. Hutchinson, Richard (I2238)

Joseph Bemis 2d (1. Joseph.) This son of the immigrant, the first to arrive at manhood, m. Anna---and removed to Westminster, Mass; then called Narragansett No. 2. In 1740, his son, probably Philip, "Disposed of all right and title to the property of my honored father and mother, Joseph and Anna Bemis, to my brother Joseph and sister Mary of Cambridge." (p. 542. Hist. of Westminster Mass. by William S. Haywood.) As we know that Joseph's wife was Anna, and that he went to Westminster to live, it proves that he was the son of Joseph Bemis the immigrant. The records of the towns of Westminster and Watertown do not furnish any data of an intervening generation, and the author therefor assumes there was none. Joseph Bemis, or Bemish so spelt, was a soldier in King Phillips War as evidenced from the following entries in Bodge "Soldiers in King Phillips War" p. 176. Joseph Bemish credited under Capt. James Oliver, for services Mar. 24, 1675-6. £2. 149. p. 376. The same soldier received £2. sro. p. 147. Under a list of the Grantees of Narragansett No. 2. now Westminster, Mass, appears Joseph Beames, deceased, claimed by his son Joseph Beames. Grant made about Oct. 17, 1733. In 1700, the son of the Narragansett settler, Joseph 3d was aided by a contribution "having had his substance consumed by fire."

232 (I) John Hall, the progenitor of this branch of the Halls, came from Coventry,
England, in 1630, and settled at Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay, New England. He
afterwards married a Larned (Miss Bertha, says one authority) and settled at
Yarmouth on Cape Cod, where twelve sons were born to them, seven of whom, namely
John, Gersham, William, Joseph, Nathaniel, Elijah, and Benjamin, the late Rev.
David Hall, D.D., of Sutton, said he had seen, and two of whom were alive in
1733, aged about eighty years.

233 (II) William Goodhue, son of William Goodhue (l), was born at Ipswich, Massachusetts, 1645. He was captain of the military company of the town, and deacon of the church at Chebacco, of which Rev. John Wise was pastor. He was at various times selectman and deputy to the general court. He was a leader of the famous revolt against the royal governor in 1687. An attempt had been made by Sir Edmund Andros and his government to collect a tax of one penny per pound in the Massachusetts Bay colony. That tax was in violation of the charter of the colony and of the British constitution, both of which guaranteed to English citizens the right of representation in any legislative body imposing a tax upon the people.

The Ipswich citizens led by their minister, Mr. Goodhue, and John Andrews, proposed in town meeting to resist the payment of this tax and were thrown into prison by Andros, together with Robert Kinsman, John Appleton and Robert French, other leading citizens, denied the privilege of giving bail, tried, convicted of contempt and high misdemeanor and kept in the jail twenty days longer. Rev. John Wise was suspended from the ministerial function and fined fifty pounds. William Goodhue was fined twenty pounds. This outrage on the minister and deacon of the Chebacco Church was amply revenged a few years later, when Andros was given some of his own medicine. Deacon Goodhue was highly respected and honored by his townsmen, eminently useful and greatly beloved.

He lived on a farm which his father bought for two hundred and sixty-five pounds, September 10, 1666, and in turn he deeded it to his son William as a gift May 1, 1686. The town made him a grant of land as an indemnity for the losses and injuries he sustained from the action of Governor Andros. He died October 12, 1712, and was buried at Chebacco, where his grave is marked by a headstone.

He married, November 14, 1666, Hannah Dane, daughter of Rev. Francis Dane, of Andover, Massachusetts. Their children were: William, born November 13, 1667; Nathaniel, born August 4, 1670, of whom later; Hannah, born July 4, 1673; Josiah, born March, 1676; Francis, born October 4, 1678 (H. C. 1699), died 1707 unmarried; Elizabeth; John, born August 28, 1681, died September 19, 1685; Margery, born August 12, 1685; John, born August 12, 1685 (twins); Mary; Bethiah.

234 (III) Lieutenant Paul Raymond, son of William (2) Raymond, was born at Beverly, January 22, 1695, died in 1759.He was a lieutenant in a military company. He married, February 28, 1717,Tabitha, daughter of Freeborn Balch. They were dismissed from the First Church of Salem to the church at Bedford, Massachusetts, April 4. 1736. The first five children were born at Salem and baptized in the First Church there, and others were born at Bedford. Children: Elizabeth, baptized April 9, 1721; Mary, baptized March 10, 1723; William,mentioned below; Edward, baptized December 17, 1728; Paul, baptized May 17,1730; Lucy, born August 7, 1737; Nathan, born February 29, 1740; Tabitha, born September 19, 1743. Raymond, Lt.

238 (JBM note, Nov 2006) Apparently Thomas had the wanderlust. He came to the US in November 1864, again in August 1865. His whereabouts was often unknown, as was his time and place of death. He emigrated from England to Australia and after 1870 was never heard from again. (From notes in Wm B. Brierly's files). Woolfenden, Thomas (I4557)

240 (NOTE FROM RALPH TERRY: I have found no proof that this James Greer was the same James Greer who married Ann Taylor. There is no marriage record of which I am aware, but it has been placed in some records that they married June 6, 1687. This was the date of the first proven connection of our immigrant ancestor, as Arthur Taylor mentions "James Grear, and Ann, his wife" in his will and gave him land that was later passed on down to John Greer, the only recorded son of James Greer and Ann Taylor. This will does not show that Ann, wife of James Grear, to be his daughter. But, from a deposition made by the son, John Greer in 1738, that he (John) was born about 1688 and that his mother, Ann Grear was a daughter of Arthur Taylor. This would place the marriage of James Greer and Ann Taylor in 1887 (sic_should be 1687) or before, as also proved by Arthur Taylor's will. If the James who married Ann Taylor, is the same James who was transported in 1674, and as John seemed to have been their only child, then they probably would not have married many years before he was born. Therefore, James Greer would have been about 55 to 60 years old when he married. It was been said that James was killed, but I see no proof of this. If this James was over 60 years old in 1688, then there is a good chance that he died of old age. Other researchers feel the James Greer who arrived in America in 1674 was born about 1656, but this appears to be based on the thinking that all men who came over were young men, so he would have been about 18 years of age.)

"June 6, 1687. To all Christian people, to whom these presents shall come ... I, Arthur Taylor, of Gunpowder River, in Baltimore County, Maryland, Planter, for and in consideration of natural love and affection which I have and do bear unto James Grear and Ann, his wife, as also for divers and other good reasons and considerations and hereunto especially moving and do by these presents, give, grant, alein, enfoff their heirs and assigns, unto James Grear and Ann, his wife, their heirs and assigns forever, 75 acres of land, being part of a greater tract of 300 acres belonging to the said Arthur, and called, "Arthur's Choice", lying and being situated in Baltimore County, and on the south side of a branch of the Gunpowder River, called Bird Run, beginning at a red oak standing on the said river and running from said oak bounding with the ... run ... east-north-east 53 perches by a line into the woods for length 300 ... thence by a line down west-south-west from the end south-south-east ... east to line 53 perches ... Witness: Samuel Sickelman, Amos Thompson - Signed Arthur Taylor (his X mark)." (Hall of Records, Annapolis, Maryland, R. M. # H. S., Vol. 1, page 261.) This same land was held in trust for the "orphan of James Greer named John" until he reached age. Neither James Greer nor his wife Ann left a will that has been located.

242 (or 14 Nov 1829, according to Centennial History of Millbury, pg. 525). Bancroft, Solomon (I4031)
243 (or Mary). The Sudbury Vital Records gives both names on the same date, born
June 1, 1644. In his will, John Maynard speaks of his daughter Lydia, wife of
John Moore, and as there is no record of any other Lydia in his family, it
seems probable that the daughter of his wife by her first husband, Thomas
Axtell, is intended.

George Wheeler was certainly in Concord in 1638, his name appearing in the first year's records of the town, and it is not unlikely that he was one of the very first settlers in 1635. From what part of England he came is uncertain, and the relationship between him and the other Wheelers who came to Concord about the same time is unknown. The records of only a comparatively few English parishes have been printed. It is found, however, that the names Thomas, Joseph, Timothy and Obadiah appear frequently in various parishes in the county of Kent, and as these names were most common among the early New England members of the family, it is probable that the Concord Wheelers came from that part of England, and were related. George Wheeler appears to have been a person of consequence and presumably, a man of education and judgment, for he was often intrusted with important matters and put on many committees for the transaction of public business, and we find his name signed to all sorts of petitions and memorials to the General Court from the first settlement of the town to the very year of his death. He was selectman in 1660. He was a man of wealth and owned land in every part of the township – Brook Meadow, Fairhaven Meadow, the Cranefield, by Walden, Goose and Flint's pond, on White Pond Plain, on the Sudbury line, etc. He died between the years 1685 and 1687, his will being dated in January, 1685, and offered for probate 2 June, 1687.

According to the Genealogy of 1881, he kept a public house in Oxford during the time of the Revolutionary War. There seems to be no record of any service as a soldier of a Samuel Eddy of Oxford or Ward. He inherited the estate of his father. When the census was taken in 1790 his home was in that part of the original town of Oxford known as Ward. He was the head of a household consisting of three males over 16, one under 16, and four females. The Worcester Registry of Deeds contains several purchases of land which he made, one of them being from Joshua Merriam in 1762, soon after his marriage. Samuel was always known in the early days as Lieut. Samuel Eddy, and when the inventory of his property was made after his decease he is spoken of as Capt. Samuel Eddy, so it is possible that he saw service in the Revolutionary War. 
Eddy, Samuel (I5227)
249 (Savage): Emigrated from England with his parents when he was four. Became a freeman in Watertown in 1653. Representative to the General Court, 1678 and 1690.
(Bartlett) He was also a Deacon in the Watertown church later in life. During his lifetime he divided all his property, both real and personal, among his large family of children and gave the homestead to his youngest son, Ensign Jonathan Stone. He gave a one hundred acre farm on the west to his son David, so that at his death he left no will, and no administration was taken out of his estate. 
Stone, Deacon Simon (I882)
