"Thomas and William Hatch of Scituate - Plymouth Colony ca. 1634-1700" October 17, 1998; 2002 by Kaye Hooley, posted in Ancestry.com
This history is written primarily to discuss the errors and inconsistencies regarding two early settlers of Plymouth Colony, brothers, Thomas and William Hatch of Scituate. In 1916 Elizabeth French(1) researched the Hatches of Scituate as part of the New England Historical Society's "Research in England" series and traced this family to co. Kent, England. Other earlier researchers and writers such as Savage, Pope, Banks, Deane, Cutter, and Derby researched the colonial records and other primary sources and have contributed much to our knowledge of the settlers of Plymouth Colony. However, their works contain errors and misinterpretation. These men were researching an entire colony and attempting to link families. Mistakes were inevitable. In comparison, Elizabeth French was writing about one family. She had access to the research of the early writers and the colonial records they researched, along with "voluminous [Hatch] family papers"(2) that were in the possession of Israel H. Hatch and parish, court, probate, and other records in England that are reproduced in her article. Much of the information provided in this paper is based on my research and the research of my mother and supports the work of Ms. French. I also want to acknowledge the help and information provided to me by a friend and distant cousin I met on the internet. Many thanks to Dr. John P. Hatch who has given me several references and insights and who helped me in editing this paper. His support and assistance has been invaluable. I would also like to thank all my other contacts whose names are not mentioned.
An annotated Bibliography follows the Footnotes.
* * * *
Thomas and William Hatch were born in co. Kent, England about 1596 and 1598 respectively. They were the second and third sons of William Hatche (1563) and Anne Tilden. They were named in the will of their uncle John Hatche of Tenterden dated 23 March 1628/1629.(3) John Hatche of Tenderden did not have any children and left his property to his brothers and sisters and their children. Thomas is named as the second son and William was called the "now youngest" son of William Hatche. Thomas and William, immigrated to Plymouth Colony in the 1630s and their oldest brother, John (born about 1590) moved to Mayfield, East Sussex, England and was living there in 1628/1629.(4) Pope made an interesting comment when he wrote, "John Hatch, yeoman(5), of Scituate, endorsed a bond Jan. 3, 1636."(6) Possibly he was the older brother of Thomas and William. Pope did not name a source for his information and unless more information is found, John cannot be identified. John could have he died soon after his arrival in Scituate or he could have returned to England. The only other reference to a John Hatch around 1636 is John, son of William who was about twelve years old and too young to be called a yeoman or to have signed a bond.
Elder William Hatch:
William was living in Ashford when he married Jane Young of Thannington by license dated 9 July 1624 at Thannington,(7) which is a short distance southwest of Canterbury. The marriage record states, "William Hatch of Ashford, woolen draper,(8) bachelor, about 25, and Jane Young of Thannington, maiden, about 27, whose friends are dead, at Thannington, 9 July . Bondsmen: Edward Young of Thannington, husbandman, and William Page of Canterbury, blacksmith." Jane was probably his second wife since William's oldest son, Walter, was born about 1623. By 1625 William was living at Wye where his son, John, was baptized at the parish at Wye 7 August, 1625. Other children of William that were baptized at Wye are: Anne, 3 December 1626; William 9 August 1629; Jane 19 June 1631; and Andrew 3 November 1633 who died and was buried at Wye 6 November 1633. In addition, a "newborn son of William Hatch was buried at the parish of Wye 31 July 1628."(9) This son either died right after birth or was stillborn since the record at Wye is only for the burial of an unnamed newborn son.
In preparation for his journey to the colonies, William Hatch moved his family to Sandwich(10) sometime before 1634. Sandwich is on the seacoast, directly east of Canterbury. He set sail from Sandwich on the Hercules with his wife Jane, five children, and six servants, his cousin, Lydia Huckstep Tilden and her husband, Nathaniel Tilden, and their children along with Dr. Comfort Starr and his family.(11) William, Nathaniel Tilden, and Dr. Comfort Starr were co-owners of the Hercules.
On February 11, 1634/5, the eve of the departure of the Hercules, Dr. Comfort Starr of Ashford, a surgeon aged 45, made the deposition that about the latter end of November 1633/1634, John Witherley of Sandwich, mariner, bought a Flemish(12) built ship at Dunkirk called the St. Peter for £340. Dr. Starr said he was not a seaman and could not be specific about the ship, but guessed it to be about twelve feet broad above the hatches, fourscore feet long, and sixteen feet deep and is of the burthen of 200 tonnes. That he and William Hatch, John Witherley, Nathaniel Tilden and Mr. Osborne had purchased the ship and named it the Hercules.(13)
William Hatch and his family settled at Scituate where he built a house on Kent Street. His house lot was the first south of Greenfield Lane.(14) An old map of Scituate(15) has the location of his property closer to Kent Street and Meetinghouse Lane. William was admitted a freeman on 5 January 1635/6 and became a planter.(16) He returned to England as a joint venturer on the Castle of London with Thomas Rucke of Charlestowne and Joseph Meriam of Concord. The Castle "was docked at London on the River Thames in April of 1638 and arrived at the ports of Boston and Charlestowne in New England in July 1638."(17) Passengers were on the ship. It is possible that William's brother, Thomas, and their sister, Elizabeth Soan, the wife of Robert Soan, deceased, of Brasted, England, and her son, William, were on the Castle. Elizabeth later became the second wife of John Stockbridge.(18)In 1643 William Hatch was chosen the first ruling elder of the Second (Vassal's) Church of Scituate(19)and he became known as "Elder William Hatch." The Second Church of Scituate was founded in 1643, for William Witherell, after long agitations following the removal of Lathrop to Barnstable.(20) In August of that year, William and his sons, Walter and John appear on the list of those in Scituate able to bear arms.(21) William was also lieutenant of the Scituate trainband or military company.(22) "In 1638, William Vassall and William Hatch were appointed by the Colony court to exercise the people in arms at Scituate."(23)
Elder William made his will 5 November 1651. He named his wife, Jane; daughters, Jane Lovell and Ann Torrey; grandchildren, John Lovell, James, William, Joseph and Damaris Torrey; and sons, Walter and William, who were named as his executors. William died at Scituate 6 November 1651.(24) His widow, Jane, married Elder Thomas King in Scituate 31 March 1653. Elder Thomas King succeeded Elder William in the office of Elder.(25) "Thomas King, of Scituate, came in the Blessing, from London, 1635, aged 21, in company with William Vassal."(26)
Thomas Hatch of Scituate:
Thomas married Lydia Gyles 11 February 1617, at Tonbridge, co. Kent, England.(27) By 1628, Thomas Hatch was a teacher at the parish of Wye, co. Kent, England where he was "presented to the Bishop by the churchwardens at Wye for teaching school without a license; and they presented him at every subsequent court until 9 June 1628, when he procured the necessary license."(28) According to Ms. French, Thomas immigrated to the colonies about 1638, possibly on the Castle with his family in company with his brother William. He was living in Tenterden, co. Kent, England in 1636, when his daughter, Alice, was baptized, 25 Sep 1636. He settled in a part of Scituate that was "at that time but little cultivated, viz. three fourths of a mile west of the present townhouse , near a small brook that runs in the meadow, and twenty rods west of the road."(29) This may have been in the center of an area known as the "Two Mile" where his sons, Jeremiah and Thomas, settled. The Two Mile, granted in 1640, was the only part of Scituate that crossed the North River. The southern section of the Two Mile was annexed by Pembroke in 1738 and the rest was annexed by Marshfield in 1788. There is a Hatch Pond west of Mill Pond Lane in Marshfield that fits with the old Scituate map of the Two Mile. Mill Pond Lane runs north from the junction of Maryland Street and Union Street. Hatch Pond is on the west, south of the junction between Mill Pond Lane and Pine Street. Thomas is often referred to as Thomas of Scituate to distinguish him from a second Thomas Hatch in the colonies at the time who is often referred to as Thomas of Dorchester or Thomas of Barnstable. Thomas of Barnstable was in the colonies before both William and Thomas of Scituate as he was propounded a freeman 14 May 1634.(30)
Thomas was propounded a freeman in Scituate 5 March, 1638/9.(31) He witnessed the will of Nathaniell Tilden on 12 May 1641. Nothing more has been discovered about Thomas. He probably died at Scituate around 1642 at about the age of 46. Thomas was not on the 1643 'Able to Bear Arms' or freeman's lists (32) for Scituate, or any other town in Plymouth Colony. No reference is made that he was "excused."(33) It is unlikely he was missed because his son, William, was on the list, as was his brother, William, and William's two oldest sons, Walter and John. Dean thought Thomas died closer to 1646 when he wrote, "His widow had an infant Hannah brought to baptism 1646, which was probably near the date of his death. His other earlier [children] were William and Thomas."(34) Evidently Hannah was then a child of several years.(35) Thomas and William Hatch and their children were probably anabaptists,(36) which explains why Hannah was probably a child and not an infant at the time of baptism. Dean(37) also believed that "some" of the Hatches were anabaptists since many of their children were not infants when they were baptized. In addition, Thomas and William Hatch and their children were members of the Second Church of Scituate which was an anabaptist church. Several of the children of Thomas' sons, Jeremiah and Thomas, and one of the children of his daughter, Alice, have known birth and baptism dates which support the theory that they were anabaptists. The records of Scituate make a distinction between christening(38) which was performed on infants by the First Church of Scituate and baptism of children which was performed by the Second Church of Scituate.
Thomas' widow, Lydia, married John Spring of Watertown, Massachusetts, about 1654, and then continued to live in Scituate. Plymouth Colony Records dated 6 October 1659, state: "Conserning a certaine woman, viz', the wife of John Spring, of Watertown, which was sometimes the wife of Thomas Hatch, of Scittuate, which the said woman hath lived about three or four years att Scittuate from her husband. The court haue ordered that shee either repaire to her husband with all convenient speed, or to repair to Duxburrow to the house of Mr. Alden, on the twentyeth of this p'sent month of October, to give a reason why shee doth not; and incase shee shall refuse to attend this order, the Court will take a speedy course to send her to her husband."(39)
"Evidently Lydia satisfied the authorities for her reasons for living apart from her husband for in 1665 she was still living in Scituate when, as Lydia Spring, she took oath to the statements which her son-in-law, Jonas Pickles, made to her as to his wishes regarding the disposition of his property after his death."(40) Pope incorrectly identifies "widow, Grace Hatch" as the widow of Thomas Hatch of Scituate in 1646 when he wrote "He [Thomas] died before June 14, 1646, when child Hanna was baptized inventory presented by widow Grace May 27, 1661.(41) The 1661 inventory presented for Thomas Hatch by Grace was for Thomas Hatch "of Barnstable, lately deceased."(42) It appears that Pope missed the fifteen-year time difference between the baptism of Hannah and the presentation of the inventory of Thomas Hatch of Barnstable. In addition to the court record above, there is another reference to Lydia Spring in the baptism record for Daniel Pryor, grandson of Thomas and Lydia. See the reference under Mary Hatch below.
Jeremiah, Alice and Hannah - Children of Thomas Hatch:
Many writers mistakenly include Jeremiah, Hannah and Alice Hatch as the children of William. "Alice daughter of Thomas Hatch and Lydia his wife" was christened at Tenterden 25 September 1636. "Jeremiah, son of Thomas Hatch," was baptized 23 July 1626 at the parish of Wye.(43) Hannah was born in Scituate prior to 1646. Hannah "brought for baptism 14 June 1646 by the widow Hatch."(44) At the time Hannah was evidently a child of "several years"(45) and not an infant. There has been some controversy over the identity of the widow Hatch and therefore some controversy over the father of Hannah. In 1646 there were only two Hatch families in Scituate: Lydia, the widow of Thomas Hatch and Elder William Hatch and his wife Jane. Pope wrote that Grace, the wife of Thomas of Barnstable,(46) was the mother of Hannah. Jane and Grace were both living and not widows in 1646. The christening record at Tenterden names Lydia as the mother of Alice Hatch. Jeremiah and Alice were the children of Thomas and Lydia. In 1646, Lydia was the widow of Thomas Hatch of Scituate and the mother of Hannah Hatch.
All the children of Elder William are identified in the christening/baptism records in England(47) and the departure record at Sandwich, co. Kent, England. Before William could leave England he needed a certificate verifying that he had taken the "oath of Supremacy & Allegeance." Such a certificate was issued to "William Hatch, of Sandwich, Merchant, and his wife, Jane, by Thomas Gardener, Vicar of St. Maries in Sandwich 17 March, 1634."(48) The certificate names William, his wife Jane, five children, Walter, John, William, Anne and Jane and six servants or apprentices, William Holmes, Joseph Ketchrell, Simon Ketcrell, Robert Jenings, Symon Sutton and Lidia Wells. The certificate names William's residence as Sandwich and implies, but does not state with certainty, that this was William's first trip to the colonies. Elizabeth French-Bartlett verified the list and made a "verbatim" copy in 1911 that was made from the original Sandwich records and then submitted a correction to the New England Historical Society.(49) The only changes she made on William and Jane were the spellings on the names of two of their servants. She changed Joseph Ketchrell and Simon Ketcrell to Joseph Ketchell and Simon Ketchell.
Savage incorrectly names William's children on the Hercules as William, Walter, Ann, Hannah, Jane, and Jeremiah. His account adds two children, Jeremiah and Hannah, and does not mention John. Savage could not account for the extra child. He believed that William came to the colonies before 1634 with his oldest child and then left that child alone in the colonies when he returned to England for the rest of his family. Savage wrote, "and this number is one more than he brought from England in 1635; so that I infer he had brought over, at a former time the eldest, and left him or her here, while he went for the rest of the family."(50) In 1634, William's oldest child, Walter, could not have been more than eleven years old, and he was a passenger on the Hercules. William didn't have a child to leave behind. Charles E. Banks lists four of the children: Walter, William, Anne, and Jane, but not John.(51) John was on the Hercules in 1634, and he was in Scituate in 1643 when he was listed on the "Able to Bear Arms List."(52) After 1643, there is no record of John and he is not named in his father's will in 1651.
William T. Davis made an interesting mix of the children of Thomas of Dorchester and Thomas of Scituate when he wrote, "Thomas of Dorchester and Scituate, 1634, had Jonathan, William, Thomas; Alice, m. John Pickels; and Hannah, born after 1646."(53) Davis named Jonathan, son of Thomas of Dorchester and four of the children of Thomas of Scituate. Dean incorrectly named Jeremiah as the son of Elder William. Dean was correct when he wrote that Jeremiah was a shipbuilder in Scituate and that his son, Jeremiah, was also a shipbuilder(54) Jeremiah was a shipbuilder in Scituate and later he surveyed the land that became Hanover. He owned large tracts of land in Hanover that he bequeathed to his children. The History of Hanover states that Jeremiah was "often a Deputy to the colony Court, a surveyor, Selectman and in short a man of great usefulness. The surveys of at least 2000 acres of land in Hanover were made by him."(55)
"On 18 July 1677 [Jeremiah] bought of Phebe Hatch, granddaughter Elder William Hatch, the homestead of the latter, situated on Kent St., Scituate; and his ownership of this property has led some writers to regard Jeremiah Hatch as a son of Elder William."(56) Phebe Hatch inherited her property on Kent Street from her father, William Hatch, Junior, the son of Elder William. William Junior's will reads in part: "I give unto Phebee My Daughter the one halfe of my estate as it shal bee prised att the time of my Decease for to bee paid to her in the yeare 1668."(57) Once Phebe had title to the property, she was free sell it to anyone including her father's cousin.
Another argument by those who tried to prove Jeremiah was the son of Elder William is that Jeremiah received his inheritance before Elder William died, and therefore, he was not named in Elder William's will. Interestingly enough, the writers who believed Hannah and Alice were the daughters of Elder William are silent about Alice and Hannah not being named in Elder William's will although both were living and unmarried at the time of his death. Elder William left all of his land to his two remaining sons, Walter and William, Junior, in 1652. "All the Rest of my moveables goods lands and tenements I give and bequeath to my two sons Walter hatch and Willim hatch to them and theire heires forever to bee equeally Devided between them."(58) The Will of Elder William specifically refers to "my two sons," and he named the children of his daughters and made provisions for them as well as their unborn children.(59) Elder William did not name, or refer to, Jeremiah Hatch or Jeremiah's future children. Jeremiah was living and unmarried at the time and not a likely candidate to have been given his full inheritance, especially when the older Walter, who was married, had not received his share of the estate.
Perley Derby said, "For some unaccountable reason Jeremiah is not represented in his father's (the elder) will. But, all authorities agree, notwithstanding, that he must have been his son, from certain proofs and unmistakable evidence found on record. It is very probable he had at some time received his full proportion of worldly estate, making it unnecessary to notice him in said will."(60) Mr. Derby supported his position with a very confusing reference to a deed(61) for 14 acres of property that had belonged to John Huse [Hewes] the father of Jeremiah's wife, Mary. Abigail, another daughter of John Hewes had married William Hatch, Junior, the son of Elder William. William, Junior, his wife, Abigail, and their daughter, Phebe, all died prior to the will of John Hewes(62) dated 6 February 1671, and sworn 22 February 1674 and were not named in his will. John Hewes named his wife, Joanna; son, John Hewes; and son-in-law, Jeremiah Hatch. Jeremiah was not named in the will of Elder William because he was not his son. He was the Jeremiah Hatch, son of Thomas, baptized in Wye, Kent co., England July 23, 1626 (NEHGR 70:250-257).
On 30 May 1705, Jeremiah Hatch exchanged 14 acres of land located at a place called 'Drinkwater' which later became a part of Hanover for 20 acres belonging to William Parker. John Hewes originally owned the 14 acres which is not the property on Kent Street owned by Elder William and purchased in 1677 by Jeremiah from Phebe Hatch. Seven of Jeremiah's 14 acres were an inheritance from his father-in-law, John Hewes. The remaining seven acres evidently were originally meant for the other son-in-law of John Hewes, William Hatch, Junior, deceased, and without heirs. Jeremiah claimed the full 14 acres and the Scituate committee approved his claim. It was Jeremiah's claim to the second seven acres that led Mr. Derby to believe Jeremiah and William, Junior were brothers.(63) Each would have inherited seven acres because they were the sons-in-law of John Hewes, not because they were brothers. A similar inheritance occurred when William Hatch [son of Thomas] left his real property to his son, William [Junior], and son-in-law, John Barstow, not to his son and daughter, Lydia, wife of John Barstow.
Cutter was also mistaken in the identity of the children of Thomas and William.(64) He wrote that "William Hatch and wife, Jane, had the following children: Jane, who married John Lovell, Anne who married James Torre, Walter who married Elizabeth Holbrook, and Hannah who married Samuel Utley, William died in Virginia, Jeremiah died in 1713 (after his father whose will was dated 1651)." Cutter also called Jeremiah brother to Walter when he said: "Walter with his brother, Jeremiah, bought lan
 Eunice died in childbirth, child premature. Information from source listed for husband Charles. In April 2001, Mary Carr sent a posting she had received from a Tarrant County Texas genealogy mailing list (Internet), from Rose Coerber. Rose was looking for parents of M. E. James who married Charles Boydstun. She noted that J. T. James married Dora Boydston and J. T. was shot about January 1880, and that the story was told that Charles Boydstun hunted down the man who shot J. T. and administered justice. Mary added that in her research she noted a Menard James in Tarrant County who was named in Nick Wisrock's will dated 1878 as "Menard James, lunatic." Nick's widow contested Menard's portion of the estate. Mary located Menard James on the 1900 US Census living in an asylum. He was born in 1849 in Texas, father born in Alabama, mother in Georgia.

Daniel, Sarah and three sons (Jeremiah, Daniel, Jr. and Joseph) came to the Majorbagaduce. At one time the family owned one-quarter of the township of Penobscot. Daniel taught school, moved to "Bagaduce" about 1774, settling in Penobscot. Their six children are listed in "Maine Families in 1790," edited by Ruth Gray (Camden: Picton Press, 1988, p. 280; Maine Genenealogical Society Special Publication No. 2). Daniel m. (2) by July 1763 Mercy _____, as their daughter Temperance was baptised then - see "The Maine Genealogists" for November, 1996, p. 152, which also reports "Daniel is claimed to have had a third wife who was another Sarah Staples, however the documentary evidence to support this has not been found." Note that Daniel was born several years after his reported mother, Ruth Bragdon, died - is he in the wrong family?
"Captain Daniel Wardwell was 68 1/4 years of age when he died in 1804 in Penobscot. Sarah (Staples) Wardwell was a widow for over 15 years, dying in 1817, age 83 1/2. Descendants of Sarah and Daniel included 4 Methodist ministers; 3 medical doctors; 20 descendants 'lost at sea'; and 15 serving in the Civil War, where three died." - "Eliakim Wardwell of York, Maine With an Informal Collection of His Descendants through the 7th Generation," Majorie Wardwell Otten 2002. Penobscot Selectman in 1790.
Neil Underleider (firstname.lastname@example.org) in his 2003 web site http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/u/n/g/Neil-Ungerleider-MA provides much information on the Wardwell genealogy in America. Regarding Daniel: "On January 24, 1755, at York, Province of Maine, intentions of marriage were posted by Daniel Wardwell, 20, and Sarah Staples, 211. Not until 1997 was the parentage of Sarah Staples resolved by record. In addition, there was a question of how many wives Daniel had: a parish clerk (or a transcriber) had used the given name 'Mercy/Mary' as the 'wife of Daniel' in the baptismal records of three of Daniel's children (Sarah, Daniel II, and Mercy); the clerk had confused Sarah Staples with Mercy, wife of Daniel's brother Jeremiah. Sarah (Staples) Wardwell, daughter of Anna (Thompson) and Hezekiah Staples, was baptized as an adult on October 26, 1755, at York; and at the same time, their first born child, Eliakim, was also baptized. Daniel became a very successful captain of sloops and schooners in the coastal trade from York to Bagaduce (now Castine) and to other ports. In April of 1774, Daniel removed his large family from York to Penobscot, where he took up Lot 79, Peter's Survey. He now owned 200 acres of land (80 rods on the water). In addition he purchased another 100 acres (60 rods on the water) from the original owner John Black. In Penobscot, their last child, Samuel, was born. Sarah was said to be the first to practice mid-wifery east of the Penobscot River and to have attended 500 cases and never lost a woman or child under her wonderful skill and care. In 1775, after 'the shot heard 'round the world' was fired at Lexington and Concord on April 19th, Maine had its opportunity to enter the Revolutionary War. On June 12, 1775, the men of Machias of Washington County, coastal Maine, captured the British schooner Margaretta and two British sloops, Polly and Unity. This action is considered to the first naval engagement of the War. Captain Daniel was Master of the privateer Tryphena in 1775, his two sons Jeremiah and Daniel II serving aboard as crew. Daniel was one of the four men of Penobscot serving on the Committee of Safety in March of 1776. Serving on the Committee of Safety must have been difficult for Daniel, for as it was in all wars, family loyalties were divided. In 1776, daughter Tryphena, 15, married Finlay Malcolm and around 1778 daughter Abigail, 17, married Daniel Brown. Later, both men would be named as 'Loyalists'. Daniel and his family moved to what was the original Hosea Wardwell Farm on Wardwell's point in 1778. In 1779, the British took possession of the port of Bagaduce, and Captain Daniel's sloop Polly was seized by Commodore Mowatt, of infamous memory, and confiscated for the use of King George. Mrs. Wardwell, whose maiden name was Sarah Staples, started on foot for Bagaduce, a distance of seven miles, to demand of General McLean the release of her husband's sloop. On the way she was met by a British officer of rank, who demanded her business with the General. She opened her broadside on the officer, all her guns double shotted. He, in a burning passion, drew his sword and threatened to thrust her through; undaunted, she bared her bosom, and bade him strike, at the same time calling him a (word faded here) cowardly British dog. The Briton did not strike, but such was his admiration of her pluck that he made a favorable report to General McLean and the sloop was released with ransom. It was also in 1779, that Daniel, his son Jeremiah, and son-in-law Findlay Malcolm, were listed as owners of the schooner Thomas Williams. At the end of the War in 1783, Daniel's two eldest daughters, Abigail and Tryphena, with their husbands and children, were transported by the new United States government to St. Andrews, Nova Scotia. His 13-year-old daughter Mercy Wardwell went along as a 'nanny' but soon returned to Penobscot. Two years later at St. Andrews, daughter Sarah Wardwell, 20, married Neal Brown, a British soldier. After the War, Daniel served twice as Representative to the General Court at Boston, as Maine was still under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts. He was said to be 'a man of sterling qualities'." Underleider also lists as children of Daniel and Sarah daughter Abigail (b. ca. 13 May; d. after 30 October 1784, Canada) who m. ca 1778 Danil Brown, (b. 1744, Scotland, d. 1835, St. Stephen, New Brunswick, a Loyalist who removed to St. Andrews, NB in 1790), and daughter Sarah (b. by 30 June 1765, d. after 1785) who m. 24 Oct 1785 in St. Andrews, NB, Canada to Neal Brown (soldier of the British 74th Regiment, disbanded at Penobscot (Castine) - "Loyalist Letters", Downeast Ancestry, Vol 7:141). [Daniel's service is documented in "Solders, Sailors and Patriots of the Revolutionary War - Maine," Carleton E. Fisher (Louisville, KY: NSSAR, 1982), p. 825.] Cf. http://www.one-barton-family.us/genealogy/viva/d208.html (not verified). "History of York, Maine," Charles Edward Banks (Baltimore: Regional Publishing Co., 1967), Vol. II, p. 214 lists Daniel in the York Train Band in 1757.
