8G Grandparents (Continued)

1055 Susanna Ring.360,494  b. Leyden, Holland or England about 1605-12. d. Boston or Plymouth, MA before January 20, 1665.

1062 William White.364 b. England about 1600. d. Boston, MA in 1673.

William was a bricklayer by trade and worked at the Iron Works in Lynn, Massachusetts at some date. His work brought him to other locations in New England as well. In February, 1655, he was at Warwick, Rhode Island. He was granted a house lot adjoining his son-in-law "Benjamine Herndell" [Benjamin Hearnden] on October 17, 1656. That same year, he had supervised the bricklaying at Winthrop's stronghold on Fisher's Island and had been in Providence, Rhode Island. On February 27, 1657, William was granted a share for his "meddow" near another son-in-law, Thomas Walling. He was settled in Boston again by October 16, 1662. He bought a house on town land from Nathaniel Woodward, for which he had to pay rent to the town. (Suffolk Deeds, 7:110) This land was later granted to William on March 14,1669/70. (Boston Record Commissioners, 7th Report, p. 53, 1881)

On February 17, 1659, Benjamin Hearnden became involved with the law in regard to his "breach of peace and fright, Committed on the family of William White, of this Towne." In a separate incident, William's daughter, Margaret, already married to Robert Colwell, ran away with her married neighbor, Thomas Walling; both deserted their families. Colwell secured his divorce July 2, 1667; Margaret had returned to Boston and was ordered to be publicly whipped 15 stripes and was fined. In October 1666. Colwell went to Long Island, Walling also obtained a divorce and he married Margaret in 1669. After his death in 1674, her third husband, Daniel Abbott, took her to court, but she was eventually named in his will.

William White made his will October 13, 1673. His wife was to have: "all my vissable estate so long as she was a widowe and to have her thirds if she remarried; two Sonnes Isaacke & Cornelius White; two sonnes & 1 daughter Susanna Waggett, wife of Thomas Waggett after the decease of wife; to son William White 5 shillings... to other 3 daughters, Elyzabeth Harnden, wife of Benjamyne... Margaret Wallen, wife of Thomas Wallen, and Usrulla Bennett, the wife of John Bennett each 4 shillings." The will was proved January 31, 1673/4. From the probate records, William may have died on October 30, 1673. On December 28, 1676, William's widow signed her mark to the following:

"Elizabeth White of Boston, relict of William White late of Boston, deeded for love etc. to her Son Cornelius White that part of land which his father (bequeathed to him) excepting the house wherein I dwell which is his after my decease and which I reserve to my Selfe during my life." (Suffolk Deeds, 12:325)

William promised to pay Henry 20 and 120 to his son Richard Tew who was to marry Mary Clarke. Henry Tew for his part agreed to give to Richard Tew houses, barns and land.

Alan J. Tew in "The History of Your Name", reports that the great grandfather of Henry was a Richard Tew of Eydon whose will was dated 1521. Before that the family is found in Northhamptonshire in the 15th century. The first mention of the family in history was Joibert de Tew who owned lands in Adderbury and Duns Tew during the reign of Henry I (1100-1135).496

Rev. Joseph Browne received a B.A degree from Queens in 1582-3. He served as the curate of the parish of Rusper during his life. In his will dated June 16, 1633, he bequeathed to his son William his house and lands in Rusper; to his maid Mary Fowler, a legacy; to William and John Browne, items of furniture, to daughters Sarah, Susan and Phoebe, ten pounds each and to all his grandchildren 10 shillings each.

1210 John Johnson.499,500,383,501 b. Hertfordshire, England about 1590. d. Roxbury, MA on September 30, 1659.

In March of 1645, while Johnson was away from home, his house caught fire and seventeen barrels of powder were detonated with such force that all the houses of Boston and Cambridge were shaken as if in an earthquake. The firefighters had fled the fire before the blast, so that no one was harmed. Johnson was a confidante of the Assistant Governor, Thomas Dudley and served as an advisor on military affairs for the colony. He acted as an attorney in matters of deeds, wills and the like for many men of the colony. The valuation of his estate indicates that he was a fairly prosperous man. He is an ancestor of both American presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Franklin Pierce.502

On 8 September 1642 John Johnson was assigned the duty of distributing the gunpowder to the major towns in the colony "taking into serious consideration the present danger of each plantation by the desperate plots & conspiracies of the heathen" [ MBCR 2:26]. On 7 March 1643/4 Richard Davenport, Captain of the Fort of the Massachusetts at Castle Island, was instructed to demand at any time from John Johnson, surveyor general, for every soldier one sufficient musket, sword, rest and pair of bandilers with two fathom of match for each musket [ MBCR 2:65].

ESTATE: On 1 April 1634 he paid 20s. toward the building of the seafort [ MBCR 1:113]. In the earliest list of Roxbury inhabitants, about 1642, John Johnson's valuation of 15 12s. and 6 8s., with six goats and four kids, was one of the highest in the town [ RBOP 4-5]. In the Roxbury land inventory in the early 1650s John Johnson held thirteen parcels, six of which had been granted to him by the town: "his house, barn and house lot on the back side of his orchard, together with liberty to enclose the swamp and brook," eight acres; three acres of marsh; twenty acres of mowing ground; ten acres of woodland; four acres by Rocky Swamp; one hundred and ten acres and one quarter in the last division, first and third allotments; fifty-one and a half acres in the thousand acres near Dedham, bought of Edward Porter and John Pettit; six acres bought of James Morgan; sixteen acres and a half bought of Richard Goad; an acre and a quarter lately the land of Thomas Lamb; three acres of woodland lately the land of John Stebbins; four acres of fresh meadow "lately bought of John Parepoynt"; and thirteen acres and twenty rods of land, wood and pasture bought of Thomas Gardner [ RBOP 16-17]. He took in a servant, Samuel Hefford, for three years on 1 December 1640 [ MBCR 1:311]. He deposed 7 September 1642 that he had sold three acres of meadow to John Sams [ SLR 1:37]. John Johnson was granted 40 "for his service done the country diverse years past" on 14 May 1645 [ MBCR 2:99, 103]. On 7 October 1646 he petitioned with others for the land formerly granted them between Dedham, Watertown and Sudbury; Johnson was to receive four hundred and thirty-six acres [ MBCR 2:163, 184]. On 18 October 1648, John Johnson and others were to receive lands formerly granted between Andover and Redding "in the place whereabouts the bridge should be built" [ MBCR 2:256]. He sold one hundred acres to Richard Parker, 24 May 1650 [ MA Arch 45:17]. On 22 June 1652, John Johnson received land in Roxbury from Thomas and Dorothy Hawley [ MA Arch 67:102]. In May 1656, John Johnson and Eleazer Fawer were instructed by the General Court to divide the estate of Barnabus Fawer equally so that Johnson's third wife, Grace (Negus) Fawer, and her son Eleazer Fawer received half each [ MBCR 3:402]. On 6 May 1657, "Mr. John Johnson having been long serviceable to the country in the place of surveyor general, for which he hath never had any satisfaction, which this Court considering of, think meet to grant him three hundred acres in any place where he can find it" [ MBCR 3:430]. Within the year, Johnson had sold this land to Mr. William Parks [ MBCR 4:1:354]. In his will, dated 30 September 1659 and proved 15 October 1659, "John Johnson of Roxbury" bequeathed to "my beloved wife" my dwelling house and certain lands "I have already given" during her natural life according to a deed, also 60 for her household furniture "which house and lands, after my wife's decease, I give unto my five children to be equally divided, my eldest son having a double portion"; to "my two grandchildren who have lived with me, Elizabeth Johnson and Mehittabel Johnson" 5 each; to "my sons Isaak Johnson & Robert Pepper" confirm the parcel of lands of fifty-five acres in the third division "I have formerly given" them; residue to "my five children equally divided, my eldest son having a double portion"; sons Isaac Johnson & Robert Pepper executors; "my dear brethren Elder Heath and Deacon Park" overseers; "If my children should disagree in any thing I do order them to choose one man more, to these my overseers, & stand to their determination" [ SPR Case #218]. The inventory of "John Johnson late of Roxbury" was presented 15 October 1659 and totalled 623 1s. 6d., of which more than 350 was real estate: "20 acres of meadow," 80; "the house and land about it," 190; "one lot near Stoney River let to John Peairepoint for years," 40; "in the Great Lots one pasture of about twenty acres," 40; and "about ten acres of land near the Great Lots and twelve acres bought of Thomas Garner," [blot]. Among the many domestic luxuries in this inventory were a considerable number of linens, cushions, rugs and blankets. His personal military accoutrements included "two fowling pieces and one cutlass, 2" [ SPR Case #218]. In her will, dated 21 December 1671 and proved 29 December 1671, "Grace Jonson" "very weak in body" bequeathed to "my two brothers Jonathan and Benjamin" all my estate equally divided; "my brother Jonathan Negus" executor; "they shall give to them that was helpful to me in my sickness" [ SPR 7:175]. BIRTH: By about 1588 based on date of first marriage. DEATH: Roxbury 30 September 1659 ("John Johnson, Surveyor General of all the arms, died & was buried the day following" [ RChR 176].)

MARRIAGE: (1) Ware, Hertfordshire, 21 September 1613, Mary Heath; she was buried at Ware 15 May 1629. (2) By 1633 Margery _____. "Margery Johnston [sic] the wife of John Johnson" was #90 on Eliot's list and probably came to New England in the spring of 1633 [ RChR 79]. "Margery Johnson, the wife of John Johnson," was buried at Roxbury 9 June 1655 [ RChR 176]. (3) By 1656 Grace (Negus) Fawer, widow of Barnabas Fawer [ MBCR 3:402]; she died after 21 December 1671 (date of will) and before 29 December 1671 (probate of will

ASSOCIATIONS: John Johnson's first wife, Mary Heath, was sister to WILLIAM HEATH and Isaac Heath of Roxbury. While there is no doubt that one of the five children named by John Johnson in his will was at one time the wife of Hugh Burt, it is not certain which daughter, Sarah or Hannah, she might have been. Sarah is the more likely candidate, and if it was she, then she went on to marry William Bartram. This difficult and unsolved problem has been discussed by Helen S. Ullmann and by Dean Crawford Smith and Melinde Lutz Sanborn [ TEG 6:178-84; Angell Anc 390; see also NEHGR 149:230-39]. COMMENTS: John Johnson was the confidant of powerful men, filled an important position in the affairs of the early colony and in the development of its defenses, and was involved as an overseer, attorney, witness and appraiser in the affairs of many of his neighbors [ Lechford 60, 207, 255, 294; SPR Case #43, 83, 96, 134, 196; SLR 1:30, 107, 137, 215, 238 327 2:237-38, 341; MA Arch 15B:151]. He owned a considerable estate at his death. With all these advantages, he kept a low profile in his personal life and never achieved a consistent rank of "Mr." John Johnson was freed from training, paying 10s. a year to the company, 31 October 1639, and the following year was freed entirely, in "regard of other public service without any pay to the company" [ MBCR 1:282, 315]. This implied that he was not yet sixty years old in 1640. A great tragedy to the Johnson family as well as the town of Roxbury, occurred when John Johnson's house, with a substantial supply of the colony's gunpowder therein, caught fire and burned in March of 1645. Many of the major diarists of the time recorded the event: John Johnson, the surveyor general of ammunition, a very industrious and faithful man in his place, having built a fair house in the midst of the town, with diverse barns and other outhouses, it fell on fire in the daytime, no man knowing by what occasion, and there being in it seventeen barrels of the country's powder, and many arms, all was suddenly burnt and blown up, to the value of four or five hundred pounds, wherein a special providence of God appeared, for he, being from home, the people came together to help and many were in the house, no man thinking of the powder till one of the company put them in mind of it, whereupon they all withdrew, and soon after the powder took fire and blew up all about it, and shook the houses in Boston and Cambridge, so as men thought it had been an earthquake [ WJ 2:259]. Eliot remarked, In this fire were strange preservations of God's providence to the neighbors & town, for the wind at first stood to carry the fire to other houses, but suddenly turned & carried it from all other houses, only carrying it to the barns and outhousing thereby, & it was a fierce wind, & thereby drove the vehement heat from the neighbor houses [ RChR 188]. At the General Court 14 May 1645, John Johnson moved that copies be made of important documents that had "very hardly escaped" the fire [ MBCR 3:13]. Assistant Governor, Thomas Dudley, was a close associate of John Johnson's, and Dudley bequeathed to "John Johnson, surveyor general of the Arms and one of his beloved friends" 5 if he lived two years after Dudley's death, and asked that Johnson and the others should "do for me and mine as I would have done for them & theirs in the like case" [ SPR Case #129]. Pope, for no apparent reason, credited John Johnson with a son John who "came to Roxbury" and was an "efficient citizen."

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: John Johnson has been frequently treated in print by excellent genealogists. In 1948 Mary Lovering Holman produced an account that would be the standard for many years [ Stevens-Miller Anc 318-22]. In 1992 Douglas Richardson and the team of Dean Crawford Smith and Melinde Lutz Sanborn simultaneously and independently discovered the English origin of John Johnson and published useful information on his family and his many connections with other early New England immigrants [ NEHGR 146:261-78; Angell Anc 377-91].

Her brothers Isaac and William also emigrated to New England and settled at Roxbury with John Johnson. Isaac came in 1635 on the ship Hopewell and William came in 1632 on the ship Lyon. William and Isaac were representatives to the General Court. Issac was one of the founders of the Roxbury Free School. Some of the children of her sister Prudence Heath Morris also emigrated to New England.

1212 John Inman.384 b. Westminster, London, England about 1580. d. about 1620.

1222 James Chilton.508,509,510  b. Canterbury, Kent, England about 1556.395 d. Provincetown Harbor on ship Mayflower on December 18, 1620.511

ORIGIN: Leiden, Holland
MIGRATION: 1620 on Mayflower
FIRST RESIDENCE: Died before Mayflower reached Plymouth
OCCUPATION: Tailor.
ESTATE: In the 1623 Plymouth land division "Marie Chilton" received an unknown number of acres as a passenger on the
Mayflower [ PCR 12:4]. In the 1627 Plymouth cattle division Mary, now the wife of John Winslow, is listed as the sixth person in the sixth company [ PCR 12:11].
BIRTH: About 1556 (aged 63 in 1619 [ Bangs 34]), probably at Canterbury, Kent, son of Lionel Chilton by an unknown first wife [TAG 38:244].
DEATH: 8 December 1620 off Cape Cod [ Prince 165].
MARRIAGE: By 1586 _____ _____; she d. Plymouth early in 1621 [ Bradford 446]. (John G. Hunt has suggested, reasonably, but on limited evidence, that she was Susanne Furner, James Chilton's stepsister [ TAG 38:244-45].)

COMMENTS: On 12 June 1609, "[blank] the wife of James Chilton" was excommunicated from St Peters, Sandwich, Canterbury [ NEHGR 153:407-12]. Until recently there was no direct evidence that James Chilton resided in Leiden, despite the marriage of one and perhaps two daughters there. Recent research in Leiden has revealed a notarial record detailing an assault on James Chilton, aged 63, and his daughter on 28 April 1619 [NS]; this assault has been interpreted as one of the reasons leading the Pilgrims to believe that they were becoming less welcome in Leiden, and therefore as a factor in the decision to leave for New England [ Bangs 34; see also Stratton 262]. In his list of those on the Mayflower Bradford included "James Chilton and his wife, and Mary their daughter; they had another daughter that was married, came afterward" [ Bradford 442]. In his accounting of the family in 1651 Bradford reported that "James Chilton and his wife also died in the first infection, but their daughter Mary is still living and hath nine children; and one daughter is married and hath a child. So their increase is ten" [ Bradford 446]. The death date for James Chilton is given variously as 6, 8, or 18 December 1620. The best evidence for the date is Prince, who cites a now-lost notebook kept by WILLIAM BRADFORD [ Prince 165]. The date of 18 December may have arisen when someone corrected for the 1752 calendar change, an unnecessary confusion. A month before his death James Chilton signed the Mayflower Compact. A longstanding tradition has held that Mary Chilton was the first of the Mayflower passengers to step onto Plymouth Rock. Charles Thornton Libby carried out a detailed examination of this story, published as Mary Chilton's Title to Celebrity (Boston 1926; rpt. Warwick RI 1978).

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: JAMES CHILTON has been treated in the second volume of the Mayflower Society's Five Generations Project [ MF 2:1-117].

He m. Susanna _____393,512, about April 1586.512

They had the following children:
i. Isabella
ii. Jane
iii. Mary
iv. Joel
v. Elizabeth (<1594-)
vi. James (<1596-<1603)

viii. Christian (<1601-)
ix. James (<1603-)
611 x. Mary (-<1679)

1223 Susanna _____.393,512 d. Plymouth, MA on January 11, 1620/1621.511

James Chilton and his wife moved from Canterbury to Sandwich some time before July, 1601. On June 12, 1609, Mrs Chilton, along with several others, was excommunicated at St. Peter's Church in Sandwich for being present at the illegal burial of a child of the church. 512 This is interpreted as being a Separatist Act rather than what we would consider purely criminal.

1224 Thomas Fenner.273 b. Horley, Surrey, England about 1540. d. Horne, Surrey, England in 1601.

The Fenner family is an old family of the town of Horley. A William Fenner was the churchwarden there in the year 1531. In the parish church there is a monument to the memory of Johan, wife of John Fenner dated 1516. Thomas lived in Horne despite having been born at Horley where he owned property. He is named in the Lay Subsidy for Horne for the year 1593. The evidence from his will suggest that he was a fairly prosperous person for his time. his will, dated Dec. 14, 1601 gives to Samuel Fenner, his youngest son, buildings and lands in Burstow, Horley, Horne and Worth; to Arthur Fenner, he gave lands in Horley and Horne; to Sarah Fenner, he gave 100 pounds. The will was litigated between his children and his second wife Elizabeth Fenner.
