History of New Bedford (Volume 4)
.
ELIPHALET WILLIAMS HERVEY, JR.

As business man, scientist, author and citizen, Mr. Hervey, during the active years of his life, was a prominent figure in New Bedford, and now walking amid the lengthened shadows is living in honored retirement in the citv of New Bedford.

Berkeley, Bristol county, Massachusetts, has been the home of his people for more than two and one-half centuries, dating from 1653, when William Harvey was proposed as a candidate for the rights of a freeman of Plymouth Company, and from 1643, when Thomas Harvey's name appeared on a list of those "able to bear arms." The surname is written both Harvey and Hervey, the ancestor of the New Bedford family represented in the twentieth century by Eliphalet W. Hervey being William Harvey, a distinguished citizen of Cohasset, which then included Taunton, Berkeley and Raynham. Both William Harvey and his brother held positions in Plymouth county and owned much land. William Harvey was a deputy to the General Court for fourteen years, selectman for twenty years, and held about every important office in the town. A mortgage made by Philip the Sachem to Constant Southworth was made over to William Harvey and John Richmond in 1672, and described land
"Four miles square down Taunton River and next unto Taunton bounds." William Harvey married, April 2, 1639, Joan Hucker, of Cohasset, and among their children was a daughter, Experience, born in 1644, who married Thomas Harvey, of Taunton, and they were the parents of William Harvey, of Berkeley, Massachusetts, who died January 7, 1745.

James Hervey, as he spelled the name, son of William and Hopestill Harvey, was born June 13, 1701, and lived in the town of Berkeley, where a tombstone in the family plot in the cemetery near Berkeley Common asserts that he died December 28, 1795, in his ninety-fifth year. James (2) Hervey, a son of James (i) and Rebecca Hervey, married Rachel Phillips, and had James (3) Hervey, who was a substantial farmer and ship builder at the Weir on Taunton river, building sailing vessels which were loaded with lumber, and both vessels and cargoes disposed of at Bristol and other ports. He married Lucinda Paull, also
born in Berkeley, and they were the parents of Dr. Eliphalet Williams Hervey. a graduate from the medical department of Brown University in 1826, and a successful practitioner in Wareham and neighboring towns. In 1827 he was a commissioned surgeon of the Fifth Regiment, First Brigade, Fifth Division, Massachusetts Militia, his commission signed by Governor Levi Lincoln. He married Dorcas Fearing, of Wareham, and among their children was a son, Eliphalet Williams (2) Hervey, who made New Bedford his home, and for half a century was closely identified with the Mechanics' Bank.

Eliphalet Williams (2) Hervey was born in the town of Berkeley, Bristol county, Massachusetts, July 27, 1834, and now resides in New Bedford, at No. 191 Hawthorne street. His father died in 1834, and Ebenezer Hervey, uncle of the boy, and a teacher in New Bedford public schools, took him to his heart and home. He passed all grades of the New Bedford public schools, finishing with high school graduation in 1849. He began business life as a bank clerk, serving the Marine Bank two years before going to the Mechanics' Bank as teller. In 1857 he was elected cashier of the Mechanics' Bank, and for a quarter of a century held that responsible post. In 1882 he resigned, but was elected a director, a position he still holds. While Mr. Hervey, as the record shows, was an able business man, holding responsible positions, he is a botanist of note and wrote a large amount of interesting matter concerning local flora. He published in i860 a catalogue of the "Plants found in New Bedford and Vicinity," arranging the flowers according to the season of their flowering. In 1890 a revised and enlarged catalogue was
published under the title "Flora of New Bedford and Shores of Buzzards Bay, with a Procession of the Flowers." For many years he was a member of the New England Botanical Club and of the "L'Academie Internationale de Geographie Botanique" of France. He contributed otherwise to the literature of botany, and is a recognized authority in his special study.

Other interests served and public service rendered by Mr. Hervey were six years' membership on the school committee, 1859-1865 ; two years as representative in the State Legislature, 1885-87 ; secretary of the old Young Men's Christian Association for many years ; member of the present Young Men's Christian Association (sustaining member) ; director of the American Tack Company ; trustee of St. Luke's Hospital (original member) ; trustee of the Five Cents Savings Bank from 1885. He is a life member of the Old Colony Historical Society, the Dartmouth Historical Society, and a member of the North Congregational Church, and for many years secretary of the New Bedford Bible Society.

Mr. Hervey married, in 1862, Emmeline K. Homer, daughter of Daniel Homer, of New Bedford. They were the parents of three children: Homer Winthrop, of further mention; Hetta M., married Pierre E. Richards ; Emma F., married Gilbert T. Thompson.

Homer Winthrop Hervey was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, February 10, 1866. He completed preparatory study at Friends' Academy, then entered Harvard University, whence he was graduated Bachelor of Arts, class of "88." He completed legal study at Harvard Law School, receiving his degree of Bachelor of Laws with the class of "91." He at once began practice at the Bristol county bar, locating in New Bedford, where he has been in the continuous practice of his profession
until the present (1917). He is a member of the County and State Bar associations, and in his profession has won high and honorable standing. His practice is satisfactory in volume, and the clientele he serves is representative of the best interests of the city.

Mr. Hervey married, August 19, 1908, Helen Lucretia Shaw, daughter of Dr. John C. and Mary H. C. Shaw, of New Bedford. Mr. and Mrs. Hervey are the parents of two children : Homer Winthrop, Jr., born September 10, 1909; Mary E., born April 30, 191 1. Mr. Hervey has his law offices on Pleasant street, opposite Masonic building, the family home being at No. 189 Maple street, corner of Tremont street. New Bedford.

The Summers family is said to be of Flemish origin, SUMMERS and to have been first known in England at the time of the Reformation. Property was granted to them at a former religious seat a short distance from Worcester, and this became the family seat. Here they resided and here they entertained Queen Elizabeth in her progress through Worcestershire in 1585. Many of the members of this family became men of distinction and renown. One branch of the family moved into Dorsetshire, England, and it is from this branch that the Virginian family is descended. The name is variously spelled Somers, Sommers, Sumers and Summers, but the Virginians of this stock have in general used the form Summers. As is well known, the tracing of ancestries in Virginian families is attended with much difficulty and many dangers of error, so that the results are often incomplete or uncertain, if not both. In the present case there is much more material for judgment than in many, and the following account is based on good evidence and confidently believed to be correct from the time of the settlement of the family in Virginia, which cannot have been greatly posterior of the coming of the family to America.

(I) John Summers, the first member of this family about whom we have definite information, was born in Maryland, in 1687, died near Alexandria, Virginia, December 4, 1791. Coming early into Virginia he settled on the Potomac, where the city of Alexandria now is, and his cabin was the first building erected on the site of this city. The first framed house ever put up at this place was prepared under his direction and on his land, being afterward hauled therefrom to its intended site. The country abounded at that time in deer, bears, wolves, wild turkeys and other animals, and his earlier years were largely passed in hunting. He became an active leader of the white settlers and a pioneer in the campaigns against the Indians west of the Blue Ridge. Hunting, however, was still a favorite employment. So little did he care about the acquisition of land that he refused a deed from the patentee for the land on which Alexandria has been built and on which he lived in exchange for a rifle. In his later years he was much engaged in pointing out the best vacant lands and in conducting surveyors and others through the forests. At last he did acquire from four hundred to six hundred acres of land for each of his sons, but he did not do this for his daughters. He lived to see Alexandria become a place of some importance. The home, on the Little river turnpike, about four miles west of that city, which he bequeathed to his son Francis was long known as one of the finest estates in Fairfax county. At the time of the revolution John Summers was too old to take a part. He was a man of robust constitution, broad of chest and powerful, and retained his faculties to a remarkable degree, although he lived to be more than one hundred years old, but about a year before his death he was disabled by a severe fall. He was a member of the Church of England. The name of his wife is not known, but among his children the youngest son was Francis, of whom further.

(II) Francis, son of John Summers, was born in Fairfax county, Virginia, March 3, 1732, died at "Summers Grove," October 14, 1800. "Summers Grove" is the estate which he had inherited from his father, four miles west of Alexandria. His life was the quiet and uneventful life of a Virginia planter. For many years he held the office of magistrate. Being, like his father, a member of the Church of England or Protestant Episcopal church, he was a vestryman of Christ Church, Alexandria. He married Jane (Watkins) Charlton, born in 1735, died August 22, 1814. Children, so far as known to us: George, born October 5, 1758, died January 10, 1818, married, in 1776, Ann Smith Radcliffe; Thomas, of whom further; Francis; Samuel. All these sons settled in the Kanawha valley in 1810; George, accompanied by his daughter Jane, made an exploration of the Kanawha valley and of the Ohio valley between Wheeling and Guyandotte, and settled three years afterward at Walnut Grove, Kanawha county, Virginia, to which he brought his family in the winter of 1813-14. From him has come a prominent family of West Virginia.

(III) Thomas, son of Francis and Jane (Watkins-Charlton) Summers, came from Fairfax county, Virginia, and settled on the Kanawha river, in Mason county, Virginia, one mile above Winfield; according to the best information his settlement was made about 1816. He was a farmer. He married Hooper. Child, George W., of whom further.

(IV) George W., son of Thomas and (Hooper) Summers,

was born, probably in Fairfax county, Virginia, January 17, 1812. He was a farmer, and about 1838 became a member of the state militia. He was a Democrat and a Methodist.

The Summers family is said to be of Flemish origin, SUMMERS and to have been first known in England at the time of the Reformation. Property was granted to them at a former religious seat a short distance from Worcester, and this became the family seat. Here they resided and here they entertained Queen Elizabeth in her progress through Worcestershire in 1585. Many of the members of this family became men of distinction and renown. One branch of the family moved into Dorsetshire, England, and it is from this branch that the Virginian family is descended. The name is variously spelled Somers, Sommers, Sumers and Summers, but the Virginians of this stock have in general used the form Summers. As is well known, the tracing of ancestries in Virginian families is attended with much difficulty and many dangers of error, so that the results are often incomplete or uncertain, if not both. In the present case there is much more material for judgment than in many, and the following account is based on good evidence and confidently believed to be correct from the time of the settlement of the family in Virginia, which cannot have been greatly posterior of the coming of the family to America.

(I) John Summers, the first member of this family about whom we have definite information, was born in Maryland, in 1687, died near Alexandria, Virginia, December 4, 1791. Coming early into Virginia he settled on the Potomac, where the city of Alexandria now is, and his cabin was the first building erected on the site of this city. The first framed house ever put up at this place was prepared under his direction and on his land, being afterward hauled therefrom to its intended site. The country abounded at that time in deer, bears, wolves, wild turkeys and other animals, and his earlier years were largely passed in hunting. He became an active leader of the white settlers and a pioneer in the campaigns against the Indians west of the Blue Ridge. Hunting, however, was still a favorite employment. So little did he care about the acquisition of land that he refused a deed from the patentee for the land on which Alexandria has been built and on which he lived in exchange for a rifle. In his later years he was much engaged in pointing out the best vacant lands and in conducting surveyors and others through the forests. At last he did acquire from four hundred to six hundred acres of land for each of his sons, but he did not do this for his daughters. He lived to see Alexandria become a place of some importance. The home, on the Little river turnpike, about four miles west of that city, which he bequeathed to his son Francis was long known as one of the finest estates in Fairfax county. At the time of the revolution John Summers was too old to take a part. He was a man of robust constitution, broad of chest and powerful, and retained his faculties to a remarkable degree, although he lived to be more than one hundred years old, but about a year before his death he was disabled by a severe fall. He was a member of the Church of England. The name of his wife is not known, but among his children the youngest son was Francis, of whom further.

(II) Francis, son of John Summers, was born in Fairfax county, Virginia, March 3, 1732, died at "Summers Grove," October 14, 1800. "Summers Grove" is the estate which he had inherited from his father, four miles west of Alexandria. His life was the quiet and uneventful life of a Virginia planter. For many years he held the office of magistrate. Being, like his father, a member of the Church of England or Protestant Episcopal church, he was a vestryman of Christ Church, Alexandria. He married Jane (Watkins) Charlton, born in 1735, died August 22, 1814. Children, so far as known to us: George, born October 5, 1758, died January 10, 1818, married, in 1776, Ann Smith Radcliffe; Thomas, of whom further; Francis; Samuel. All these sons settled in the Kanawha valley in 1810; George, accompanied by his daughter Jane, made an exploration of the Kanawha valley and of the Ohio valley between Wheeling and Guyandotte, and settled three years afterward at Walnut Grove, Kanawha county, Virginia, to which he brought his family in the winter of 1813-14. From him has come a prominent family of West Virginia.

(III) Thomas, son of Francis and Jane (Watkins-Charlton) Summers, came from Fairfax county, Virginia, and settled on the Kanawha river, in Mason county, Virginia, one mile above Winfield; according to the best information his settlement was made about 1816. He was a farmer. He married Hooper. Child, George W., of whom further.

(IV) George W., son of Thomas and (Hooper) Summers,

was born, probably in Fairfax county, Virginia, January 17, 1812. He was a farmer, and about 1838 became a member of the state militia. He was a Democrat and a Methodist. He married, January 29, 1835, Sarah A., born in Cabell county, Virginia, May 12, 1813, daughter of Adam and Elizabeth (Cockburn) Black. Children: 1. Quintilian L., born March 12, 1836, died September 28, 1842. 2. Sylvester Adams, born January 23, 1838, died May 8, 1912; a Confederate soldier. 3. John William, born May 15, 1840. 4. Constantine Ruf us, born October 9, 1842; Confederate soldier. 5. Edgar Lewis, born October 29, 1844. 6. Thomas Bascom, born March 11, 1847. 7. Tyra Campbell, born November 6, 1849. 8. Matthew James, of whom further.

(V) Matthew James, son of George W. and Sarah A. (Black) Summers, was born in Cabell county, Virginia, June 9, 1852. His home is now at Huntington, West Virginia, and he is a baggage master on the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad. Mr. Summers is a Democrat and a Methodist.

Harry Lee, born September 26, 1887. 7. Robert Pritchard, born November 1, 1889. 8. Herbert Sidney, born November 21, 1893.

10115 William Clayton received a patent for 500 acres in Chester Co.,PA. Moved from Chygoes Island, which was renamed Burlington by the Quakers, and is no longer an island.

It has been determined that Willliam Clayton is NOT the son of a London lawyer, or Oxford University dignitary that was previously claimed.

A Will Bond in lieu of a Will was signed by his son, William Clayton, Jr. and is number 119 for the year 1689 in the Register of Wills office of the City and County of Philadelphia, PA.

Exactly when William Clayton became a Quaker is not known, but he was active as a Friend before he emigrated on the ship Kent to New Jersey. Samuel Janney in his "History of the Religious Society of Friends" speaks of a William Clayton going on a missionary trip to Ireland in 1656. Joseph Besse in his "Collections of Sufferings for Sussex" has this entry: "On the 7th day of the 12th month of this present year 1663, Edward Hamper, Nicholas Rickman, Tristram Martin, William Turner, John Baker, John Sanfold, Richard Newman, William Clayton and Henry Wolger for the sake of truth they did profess in meeting together to wait upon the Lord with the rest of the Meeting (Chichester) then assembled, were by one Major Mills with his band of armed men and with guns and swords drawn and in a violent manner took out of the said meeting twenty persons and had them to an inn, where they were kept till midnight and in the meantime the said Major Mills sent for William Gratwick, called a Justice of the Peace in this County of Sussex, and for no other cause were the several persons afore named by him the said Gratwick, committed to goal and the rest he bound over to answer for that offence,, so called, who accordingly appeared at the Assize, but were not called for anything said to them in relation to that matter, but at the following Sessions the aforementioned persons who were committed to goal were fined every many six pounds for the said meeting, and because for conscience sake they could not pay their fines aforesaid, they were committed to the House of Correction for six months in the town of Arundel (about 10 miles to the east) where they lay until it was expired, but here it is to be noted that John Snasfold aforesaid was fined but three pounds, and for not paying it lay there three months. "

And the same "Collection for Lancashire" has this entry for 1665: "As William Clayton was preaching in a Meeting at Padisham, the Priest of that Parish, attended by a Constable with a Warrant, came into the Meeting, pulled William out on the street,, tore his coat. The Constable then carried him before the Justices, who tendered him the Oath of Allegiance, and upon his refusal to take it, committed him to prison till the next sessions, when the Justices fined him five pounds for being at an unlawful Assembly, and committed him to the House of Corrections for three months. The Officers, for pretended fees and charges of carrying him thither, took his coat off his back. The keeper put him into a dungeon for five days and nights, till some moderate people of the town procured him the common liberty of the house for the rest of the time."

Two Quakers, Edward Byllinge and John Fenwick were partners in a proprietorship for West Jersey purchased for Lord Berkeley. Because of financial difficulties, Byllinge signed over his share to William Penn and two other creditors who in turn sold proprietary lots to two companies of Friends, one from Yorkshire and one from London. Commissioners were appointed to "purchase from the Indians" or "to extinguish the Indian title" to the land and they shipped ion the Kent. William Clayton was among those who came with these Commissioners. There were seventeen family heads listed on the Kent which started loading in March 4 1677 and finally sailed in the early summer. They passed the royal barge in the Thames and were given a blessing by King Charles II who was undoubtedly glad to see them go. After a stop in New York, the Kent sailed up the Delaware late in August and finally settled in "Chygoe's Island," This became Burlington, NJ. There were some scattered buildings from the Swedish settlement there, but during the first winter many of the settlers had to be sheltered in sheds, tents and stables. "The Concessions and Agreements of the Proprietors, Freeholders and Inhabitants of the Providence of West Jersey in America" had been drawn and signed before the trip was undertaken. This document of civil and religious liberty was the Friends first experiment in legislation. It created an executive and a legislative power, provided that a Governor be chosen by an Assembly which in turn was elected by the people, and became the basis for the common law of the province. This colony predated Pennsylvania by five years.

The fact that William Penn referred to William Clayton as "cousin" as well as "friend" has not been explained.

Time Line: William Clayton was born 1 year prior to the first town government in the colonies being organized in Dorchester, Massachusetts

Goldie Bindschadler

Goldie Krebill Bindschadler died May 21, 2008 at a local care facility in Fort Collins, Colorado. Cremation will be conducted and services are pending.

Goldie Ellen Krebill was born on May 10, 1906 on a family farm between Donnellson and Franklin (Lee County) Iowa to Joseph and Selma (Weber) Krebill. She was the youngest of the twelve Krebill children.

Goldie completed 8th grade in Franklin and since someone would have had to drive her to Donnellson to continue school and since no one had gone beyond 8th grade in her family, she ended her public schooling. She did however attend Mennonite schools in the summer where she spoke German, as at home, to her fellow classmates and teachers.

Goldie's mother died when she was 13. In her twenties, and because of her ill health, her doctor recommended that she move to Loveland, Colorado to live with her oldest brother, Daniel Krebill. She attended and then received a certificate from a Commercial School in Fort Collins which allowed her to be a legal secretary.

Goldie, also known as 'Blackie' met Harold Bindschadler at the young adults group at First Presbyterian Church in Loveland and married Harold on March 29, 1936 at the church parsonage. After their wedding, Harold accepted a job with the US Geological Survey on a mobile survey crew. In this nomadic life, they moved thirteen times in one year. Their travels took them to New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, North Dakota, Montana, Utah and several towns in Colorado before living in Torrington, Lander, Casper and finally Laramie, Wyoming.

Goldie worked as a live-in housekeeper and nanny for several families in Loveland and Fort Collins before her marriage. She later worked as a legal secretary for the late Waldo Riffenburgh, after whom the elementary school is named for, in Fort Collins. She rented rooms to college students whom she always treated like family.

Goldie was a member of Chapter AlPEO, EX-EX Faculty Wives, a life member of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees and Laramie Plains Museum Association, the Wyoming Wool Growers Auxilary and Mother's Club of Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Goldie's volunteer legacy included serving as Blue Bird Leader, on the Campfire Girls Council, and Horizon Club Advisor. She received the Luther Gulick Award, the highest award in Camp Fire Girls. She served in many position at the First United Methodist Church in Laramie including Sunday School Teacher, Superintendent of the Primary Sunday School, Superintendent of Cradle Roll, as Trustee, Publicity Chair, Finance Chair and other various offices in United Methodist Women. She held various offices in the PTA. She logged over six thousand hours in the gift shop and information desk for the Hospital Auxiliary. Goldie was a a member of the Laramie Women's Club for fifty- three years. She was awarded lifetime membership with the Salvation Army Board, was nominated for Wyoming Mother of the Year and then served as chairwoman of the Wyoming Mother's Search committee for seven years. With Harold, she delivered Meals on Wheels for many years to clients much younger than she and received with Harold, the Lions Community Service Award. Goldie helped out with the Courtesy Clothes Closet. In her free time, she accompanied Harold to horseshoe tournaments and would volunteer as scorekeeper. They were avid Cowboys ( University of Wyoming) supporters and held season tickets for university football and basketball games.

Goldie was preceded in death by her late husband, Harold, son-in-law, Ed Pexton, eleven brothers and sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is survived by her son Darryl Bindschadler (and Helga) of Cheyenne, Wyoming; daughter, Jeannie Pexton of Fort Collins; six grandchildren, seventeen great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

History of Thomas Pettit and Christian Mellowes (from Pettit Peregrinations)
· 3 January 2014 ·

Thomas Pettit married Christian Mellowes in County Essex, England, in November 1629, five months before they sailed on the Ship "Talbot" which left England in March 1629-30. After three months at sea, they landed at Charleston (Cambridge) July 2, 1630. It was just twenty days after Winthrop's Flag Ship the "Arabella" landed at Salem.

In 1630, Winthrop's First Fleet of seventeen vessels brought about one thousand Puritans to America. Most of these were from the vicinity of Saffron Walden. Two hundred of them died before December of that year. They brought with them horses, cows, goats, and materials for planting, fishing and building. The Arabella sailed March 1629-30 and berthed sixty days later at Salem, New England on June 12, 1630, before proceeding to Charlestown. Governor John Winthrop and Thomas Dudley were on the Arabella.

Anna Pettit was baptized as "daughter of Henry Pettit" at Saffron Walden April 9, 1610, according to the Cathedral records. She was a passenger on the Arabella. On August 9, 1630, she (Anna Pettit-Peters) transferred her membership from the Salem Church to the Boston Church, being entered as Member No. 104. Later she joined Roger Williams in Rhode Island.

John Pettit I, born in England about 1608, came to America on the Talbot, the same ship that carried Thomas Pettit and his wife Christian Mellowes. The Talbot carried Thomas Pettit and his wife Christian Mellowes and her brother Oliver Mellowes, a widower born in 1597.

Oliver Mellowes was a manufacturer of "says and pays". "Says" was a coarse woolen serge and "pays" a cotton cloth with extra long nap. Thomas Pettit worked for his brother-in-law three and a half years to pay for the passage money advanced for himself and his wife. John Pettit worked one and a half years to pay for his passage.
Abraham Mellowes, father of Christian Mellowes, was born about 1569. He invested fifty pounds in the Massachusetts Bay Company and came to New England on August 19, 1633. He died in May 1639.

Christian Mellowes was born about 1611. Her mother was Martha Bulkeley, born about 1572. She descended from King Edward Knights of the Garter and from eight Sureties of the Magna Charta of A. D. 1215.

Thomas Pettit, born in Widford, England about 1609, died in Newtown, Long Island, before October 1668. He was granted a house plot on January 8, 1637-8 in Boston where the Capitol now stands (1961). John Hancock later built the finest mansion in New England on a lot between Oliver Mellowes and Thomas Pettit's lots. This house was torn down in 1856, but a bronze plate marks the location.

Crossing the Atlantic in 1629 was not a "Luxury Cruise". The Talbot carried about sixty passengers together with their livestock and supplies. The passage took sixty days (from March to June) a turbulent season on the North Atlantic. Through all the hardships of a sail crossing, Thomas Pettit's wife, Christian Mellowes, waited her fateful day of confinement, hoping that her new son would be born in the new land of freedom. Her desires were almost attained, or were they actually realized? Her son Thomas Pettit 2nd was born in Salem harbor while his shipmates were waiting the thrill of taking their first steps on the hallowed soil of America. Hardships of the past and fears of the future were forgotten in the wails of the new born boy to whom thousands of descendants today spread throughout the United States and Canada, owe their gratitude and pay homage for his staunch defense of the principles of liberty so firmly ingrained in his character by that illustrious father, Thomas Pettit, 1st.

Life in New England was by no means easy or even peaceful. The arduous job of building houses from native materials and providing food from the earth and sea left no time for idleness. Two hundred of the first one thousand arriving in Winthrop's Fleet died by the following December. Although the original incentive for the migration was to obtain religious and personal liberty, intolerance soon became an accepted public policy.

Thomas Hooker who was driven out of Essex in 1630 went to Delft, Holland. He came to Boston in 1633 and became Pastor of the Church in Newton (Cambridge). Dissatisfied with the lack of liberty among the Puritans of Massachusetts he led a party of one hundred persons on foot, driving their cattle with them, to found Hartford, Connecticut.

Roger Williams was driven from Boston because he preached the principles that one hundred and fifty years later were to form the basis of the Constitution of the United States. He found sanctuary among the Indians across the Bay. The Indian Chief gave him a tract of land to live on where he later attracted the dissidents of Boston and established the town of Essex.

Mrs. Anne Hutchinson with her brother-in-law, the Reverend John Wheelright, were arrested in April 1638 for non-conformity. Thomas Pettit who sympathized with Mrs. Hutchinson was arrested on suspicion of "slander, insubordination, and inciting to riot". He was convicted and sentenced "to receive thirty lashes and be held in goal". The Church and State were one at that time. Later the Hutchinson group were released on agreeing to leave the Colony within ten days. Mrs. Hutchinson with about twenty followers joined Roger Williams at his "Rhode Island Plantation". Thomas Pettit went to the Falls of the Piscataqua in New Hampshire with the Reverend John Wheelright where they settled on a tract of land obtained from the Indians. There they founded the town of Exeter and in 1638 established the Congregational Church. Thomas Pettit received six acres and thirty poles as his share of Exeter Uplands. On July 4, 1637, they joined in signing "The Exeter Combination", a Declaration of Independence. Half of the signers made their 'mark', but Thomas Pettit's signature is seen in excellent handwriting. Each letter is printed separately in his signature.

In 1647 Thomas became Chief Military Man and Inspector of the staves. He served as Selectman of Exeter from 1652 to 1655. He and Christian, his wife, had a daughter, Hannah, born in Exeter in early February 1647/8. His son Thomas Pettit, Junior, received a grant of thirty acres of land in 1649 (Bell's History of the Town of Exeter p-18-32) Los Angeles Library Gen. R. 974.22.E 96 Be.).

Thomas senior was one of the signers of a petition sent to the General Court in behalf of Exeter in October 1651 and signed a contract with three others in behalf of the town agreeing to make fair payment to Mr. Dudley the town Minister.

John Pettit, brother of Thomas Pettit Senior, with his family settled in Stamford Connecticut where their names appear frequently on the town records as receiving allotments of land, on birth and death records and on the official papers as public officers.

Thomas Pettit Junior's name appears on the town Register for May 20, 1652.
In 1654 the Duke of York (brother of Charles II) granted all of the land east of the earlier Connecticut grant to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. This enabled the Bay Colony to surround the settlements of Exeter and in order to survive, Exeter was forced to be reinstated with the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Thomas Pettit was unwilling to again be under that jurisdiction so he with eight children (Thomas Junior born in Salem Harbor in 1630, Sarah born in Boston in 1634, Joseph born in Boston in 1636, Elizabeth born in Exeter in 1637, John born in Exeter in 1638, Mary born in Exeter in 1640, Nathaniel born in Exeter in 1645, and Hannah born in Exeter in 1647) and other settlers sold his property and moved to Long Island. They petitioned Governor Stuyvesant and were granted the right to settle in Queens County where they named their settlement Newtown. It was later changed to Elmhurst. The Dutch had settled this general area as early as 1644 and called it Mittleburg. It was south of Hempstead on the coast.

Soon after their arrival in Newtown the Town Marshall was voted out of office for exercising his duties in an objectionab1e manner. Thomas Pettit, Senior, was elected to that office on May 8, 1657. This developed family complications since Nathaniel Pettit, his son, had fallen in love with Mary Bailey the deposed Marshall's daughter.

Thomas Pettit's name was on the list of Freeholders in 1666. Thomas Pettit, Senior (1st), died before October 1668. He was fifty nine years old.

"I have found information stating that Christian was the daughter of Oliver Mellowes, and other information that states she was
the daughter of Abraham and Martha Mellowes, and sister to Oliver.

The fact that she was married in Essex, England in Nov. 1629, proves that she could not be the daughter of Oliver Mellowes. Oliver was not born until 1598 and was first married to Marie James on Aug 13, 1620 in Boston, England. Christian would only be 9 years old at the time she was married.

The Wurtz Magna Charta does list Christian Mellowes as the daughter of Abraham and Martha Bulkeley Mellowes. She was born about 1611, and this would make her 18 years of age when she was married. I wrestled with this for some time, and could not find evidence that would support the claim of Oliver being her father."
