Some explanation of a book so unusual in contents and arrangement is 
due to the small circle of readers for whom this volume is intended, even 
though it may necessitate a personal allusion. 

Until the Author was approaching manhood he had never seen any of 
his relations more distant than a brother. But, at that period, his 
habitation was transferred into communities where nearly the whole 
population were his relations or connections by marriage. Under these 
circumstances it became absolutely necessary that he should so far 
investigate the family history as to learn his relationship to the numerous 
cousins — first to fifth — whom he was constantly meeting. In this not 
unpleasant inquiry, his evident curiosity induced several very capable 
elderly ladies to open to him the storehouses of their memories, and to 
unearth, from various unsuspected depositories, a few quite valuable 
and interesting family records and papers. Not long afterwards the 
publication of " The Upton Memorial," from both the information and 
the errors which it contained, still further excited his interest in the 
subject, and led him to make some investigations among the town 
records of New England, and form a habit of making a note of such 
genealogical data as came in his way. In 1880 his friend and kinsman, 
Colonel J. L. Chester, permitted him to take a copy of all the Upton items 
contained in his vast manuscript collections, which included not only 
gleanings from all parts of England, but also the result of several weeks 
devoted, by that princeps of modern genealogists, exclusively to the task 
of extracting all the Upton items, prior to the middle of the eighteenth 
century, from all the ordinary sources of such information in London* — 
the place of deposit of the greater part of the records of England. 

By this time the writer's collection of Upton data had become so 
extensive and valuable that the thought of its possible destruction, by 
fire or other casualty, afforded him considerable uneasiness, it being 
evident that much of it, once lost, could never be duplicated. This 
feeling increased when, upon the death of Colonel Chester in 1882, 
America forgot her pride, and England her gratitude, and permitted his 
incomparable collections to be scattered to the four winds of heaven ; 

* Colonel Chester's contribution constitutes about thirty-six pages of the most valuable 
matter in this volume. 


and the best method of printing the data collected was carefully 

Finally, in 1886, Dr. Joseph Jackson Howard, F.S.A., the accom- 
plished Editor of the "Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica," offered 
space in that publication for the purpose in view, an offer which, it is 
hardly necessary to add, was most gratefully accepted. 

It was not at any time the Author's purpose to write a family history ; 
but, deeming it desirable to collect in one storehouse all that was recorded 
outside of " The Upton Memorial," concerning any Upton who ever 
lived, he examined in person or by proxy, besides many others, all the 
books referred to under this head in the last edition of Marshall's 
" Genealogist's Guide." Everything found in them was extracted, and, 
except what was plainly erroneous — and indeed much of that, will be 
found quoted or incorporated in the following pages. Among these 
books, few were found so invaluable as the Publications of the Harleian 
Society, all of which were examined and freely used. But, lest the 
Author be accused of not giving credit where credit is due, it should be 
noted that several Parish Registers, and some of Colonel Chester's 
papers, were printed long after our extracts were taken from the original 
manuscripts; and that in more than one instance copyists employed to 
make extracts from public records for this volume have since printed the 
same extracts in publications of their own. One other book the Author 
would fain have examined, Lieut.-Colonel Vfvian's elaborate " Yisitations 
of Devonshire," but the Upton portion of it had not been printed when 
inquiry was made for it. 

Soon after the Upton data began to appear in the " Miscellanea," 
the Author learned that matter which had been printed previously else- 
where, and lengthy notes, were not deemed available for the pages of 
that periodical. To have excluded all such matter would have been to 
defeat one of the chief ends already mentioned ; while to have printed, 
without note or comment, the extracts from Heralds' Visitations and 
other public records, would have been to have given vastly increased 
currency to the numerous errors and absurdities which they contain. 
For these reasons it was deemed best to strike-off on separate sheets a 
few copies of the matter printed from month to month in the magazine, 
that these, with pages of other matter added, might in the end form a 
pamphlet containing all the Upton matter. Thus were printed nearly 
seven years ago* the first sheets of this volume, and thus was limited the 
number of the copies of the work. 

After the articles on Upton Heraldry, Bibliography, and Places, the 
pedigree, at page 105, of Uptons descended from the Cornwall House, was 

* About eighty pages of this volume appeared in the " Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica." 
from May 1886 to May 1890. 


added for several reasons : to correct errors in the accounts of this 
family printed by others ; to illustrate what may be done concerning 
several other families, from material scattered through this volume ; and 
lastly, as a mark of respect for that very illustrious house, to several 
members of which the Author is under many obligations. Far more 
elaborate notices of many members of that family would have been 
added, had the Author, at the time that part of the volume was printed, 
had any idea of printing the long genealogies which constitute the larger 
part of the book. 

The pedigree of Irish Uptons, at page 129, and the account of Other 
English Uptons, at page 135, are designed to preserve the results chiefly 
of correspondence with members of those families. 

This finished the work which the Author had thus far had in view, 
except in one particular. He had designed to print a very few pages of 
corrections of errors found in "The Upton Memorial," but it was 
earnestly represented to him that it would add greatly to the value of 
the work to include such corrections as others might have to suggest. 
Accordingly, in 1887 and 1888, circular letters were sent to every Upton 
in America whose address could be obtained, and to many abroad, 
inviting them to contribute such data as they could. While the majority 
of these letters were ignored, two or three hundred very cordial responses 
were received. From these it appeared that less than half a dozen 
persons had made any considerable study of the subject, but nearly all 
the writers contributed a few items. Upon digesting the matter thus 
obtained, it became a perplexing question how to present it to the reader. 
If printed merely as a table of Errata and Addenda to the " Memorial," 
the data would be preserved, but would be incomprehensible except when 
read in connection with the "Memorial," and unsatisfactorv to most 
readers. No better plan suggested itself than to print, in a condensed 
form, an account of all the Uptons mentioned in the " Memorial," 
correcting errors, and adding new matter. This was accordingly done 
(pages 184-336). A table for comparing this portion of the work with 
the "Memorial" was also added (page 337). If any of that family feel 
disposed to resent the fact that their ancestry has not been traced back 
of the emigrant to America, the Author would say, he has carried the 
history back nineteen years further than Vinton did. If each of the 
emigrant's living descendants will do as much, our line will be traced to 
the pre-Adamites. 

The answers to the circulars already mentioned disclosed the fact 
that there are in America a number of Upton families not related to the 
one whose history is given in the " Memorial." Sti-enuous efforts were 
made to obtain the history of these, and all that could be learned is 
printed at pages 346 to 391. In preparing the way for future historians 


of these families, the writer did not hesitate to preserve the traditions 
current in each. For, however justly family traditions have been 
disdained by the historic school of genealogists, traditions have their 
uses, and often contain a germ of veracity which is the investigator's 
only clue to the truth. Whatever errors may be found in these brief 
genealogies, the writer is content to believe that if an historian of any 
of these families appears a generation or a century hence, he will rise 
up and call him blessed who saved this much of their history from the 
oblivion into which much more has gone, perhaps for ever. All these 
genealogies were arranged upon a new plan, for reasons explained at 
page 149. 

Indexes, unusually elaborate, have been added. It is obviously 
impossible that the Index to Christian Names should be made perfect. 
Tears of study might be devoted in vain, for instance, to an attempt to 
learn whether the name " Elizabeth Upton," occurring in two places, 
should be indexed as naming one person or two. With reference to 
nicknames, the Author has followed the only safe plan of printing 
Christian names as he received them, not venturing to substitute supposed 
equivalents for nicknames or diminutives ; for the latter have been, in 
certain ages and certain localities, the true and only names of the persons 
to whom they are applied. The right spelling of geographical names has 
often been not easy, for in England and Ireland the orthography of 
place-names has varied through the centuries, and in the latter country 
the proper spelling of some names is still unsettled. In spelling American 
place-names the writer has frequently been misled by the errors of 

A general view of the history of the Uptons, from the time when 
surnames came into use in England, shews that the family name was 
acquired from the place-name in several parts of England, by men not 
related to each other ; but, on the other hand, that many families usually 
supposed to be distinct are really of one stock. Territorial lords, as a 
general rule, acquired surnames much earlier than the peasantry. While it 
is possible that yeomen as well as lords in some instances received our name 
from their dwelling-place, the earliest Uptons known to us belonged to 
the ranks of the lesser nobility, a class which, in later days, was popularly 
styled " the gentry." Nor have their descendants lost their relative 
importance in the mother country. While cadet branches have 
undoubtedly sunk temporarily to the grade of yeomen, in every generation 
the heads of several families have ranked socially with the first gentlemen 
in Europe ; and the Uptons have produced their full quota of scholars, 
public men, and soldiers of high rank. In America, where wealth and 
birth have had less influence, and primogeniture none, their history has 
not been widely different. During the last seventy-five years many of 


them have acquired great wealth in mercantile, manufacturing, and 
financial careers, and others have achieved distinction in the professions, 
in public life, as scholars or as soldiers, playing a prominent part in 
every scene of mental or physical activity in the history of their country, 
and leaving a record upon local and national annals, of which any family 
might well be proud. Until the last two generations, nearly all of them 
were, as a majority of them are still, farmers, a word which, in America, 
embraces both the yeoman landowner and the landed gentry of the 
English — a class from which have sprung most of the statesmen, scholars, 
and literary men whom America has produced. When the possession 
of wealth or education or social instincts has led them to care to mingle 
in what may be called the social world, their right to a place in the most 
refined circles in the land has never been questioned. 

In bringing his long task to a close, the Author cannot hope that 
the full extent of his labours will be appreciated by any one who has not 
undertaken similar toil under equal disadvantages. Without leisure, 
wealth, or previous training in such work ; situated thousands of miles 
from the records with which he had to deal, and almost as far from any 
library better than his own small collection of books ; engaged during the 
daytime in the most laborious of professions, or the most exacting of 
public duties ; his work has been done in hours stolen from sleep, or 
from the pleasures of the domestic circle, without the expectation of any 
other compensation than the hope that the children of the Uptons may 
be inspired, by a better knowledge of their family history, to emulate the 
virtues, excel the deeds, and avoid the failings of their ancestors. That 
the book contains errors, due to printers, copyists, and the author's 
fallibility, is not to be doubted. Many such have been corrected in 
subsequent pages, or in the table of Errata, or the Indexes ; and others, 
discovered too late to be corrected, (as " Valentine " for " Hamon," 
page 185; "Electoral College" for "Electoral Commission," page 289; 
" Mary Black" for "Eachel Black," page 358; "page 35 " for "page 25," 
page 433,) will hardly mislead the intelligent reader.* But the Author 
does claim that the book does not contain a single assei'tion of fact 
which, after a careful weighing of evidence, does not seem to be supported 
by ample authority ; while it does contain single sentences which 
represent weeks of patient investigation, and single dates which more 
than a score of letters were written to obtain. 

It seems unnecessary to reproduce here the names of the numerous 
persons who have earned the Author's thanks by supplying data concerning 
their own immediate families. Nor could the Author justly discriminate 
between these ; for our gratitude is due no less to those who were able to

supply but a single date or name, than to those, of whom there were two 
or three, who contributed data sufficient to make a small book. But there 
are others whom it would be inexcusable not to name; some because 
their assistance was wholly disinterested and due to pure courtesy, and 
others because their aid was so great as to be indispensable. These, 
whom it would be invidious to mention in any other than alphabetical 
order, were —

Thanks are due also to many copyists and record-searchers who, for 
small compensation, have rendered faithful and intelligent services ; and, 
last but not least, to the Printers, whose patience and carefulness cannot 
be too highly praised. To them is due also the credit if the orthography 
of this volume approaches the standard of Stratford-atte-Bowe more 
nearly than that of New Haven. 

A word as to what remains to be done by others, for the writer must 
here take leave of this class of work for ever. The Author, for divers 


reasons, made no special effort to obtain English data of a later date 
than the year 1750. The part of this volume which is devoted to what 
may be called strictly material for history is about one hundred and 
seventy pages. The writer estimates that sufficient other material of a 
date prior to 1750 exists in English and Irish parish and probate records 
to fill seventy pages more. Probably thirty pages would contain all 
relating to the same period that could be gleaned from other sources. 
Two hundred pages would contain all Upton records subsequent to 1750, 
and forty pages would suffice for what has not been printed concerning 
Uptons of America, Australia, and other lands ; so that another volume 
smaller than this would complete the preservation of material from which 
family histories may be written. It is true that the plan of bringing 
together data concerning persons of the same surname, without reference 
to proven relationship, has been sneered at by genealogists who ought to 
know better ; but the writer affirms, not merely that this is a proper 
course, but that it is the only course to lay the foundation for a history 
of families so ancient, so widely scattered, and locally so interwoven with 
each other as the various families mentioned in these pages. No man 
can be sure he knows the history of one Upton family perfectly, until he 
knows all about every other Upton family. Hence, if family history is 
worth knowing or preserving, the suggested second volume should be 
compiled. But the writer's experience leads him to advise no man to 
undertake its compilation single-handed, unless he possesses an abund- 
ance of three things : leisure, wealth, and taste for genealogy. Better 
would it be for a few gentlemen to join in bearing the expense of 
gradually collecting material from public records, and printing it, with 
current births, marriages, deaths and removals, and biographical sketches, 
at intervals, in parts which would ultimately make one or more volumes. 
At an expense of a few hundred dollars per annum, the work could be 
completed in a few years. Such a volume might be illustrated if desired. 
The Author has collected ancient deeds, views, portraits, and the like, 
a reproduction of which might have increased greatly the beauty and 
value of the present volume, but in the absence of any financial 
encouragement whatever from Uptons able to tender it, thev were 
necessarily omitted. 

Whether these suggestions find favour or not, the Author hopes some 
young man or woman in each community will begin to preserve the 
current annals of the Uptons of the vicinity, collect what can be gleaned 
from the local records, and set about the task of solving some of the 
hundreds of genealogical and heraldic problems which suggest themselves 
in the following pages. Their work may ultimately be printed in the 
way already suggested, or in one of the many excellent genealogical 
periodicals now published in England and America. 


And now, having at his own expense, and as a labour of love, 
completed his task without assistance or encouragement from those 
from whom perhaps he might have expected both, the Author submits 
the result to the family, and to posterity, for such judgment as it and 
he may justly deserve.

1. (Page 1.) The first nine pages of the foregoing pedigrees, and the pedigrees of Upton of 
Dublin, and Upton of Castle Upton, were copied from the original records by Joseph Jackson 
Howard, LL.D., F.8.A., the learned editor of ' Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,' and, 
although differing slightly from the versions printed by the Harleian Society and others, are 
believed to be an exact reproduction of the originals. 

2. Holand : Holland, a division in Lincolnshire. 

3. (Page 4.) Much light, doubtless, would be thrown upon early Upton genealogy by a 
thorough study of Upton coats of arms. Until it is known how early arms were borne by each 
family, what those arms were, and under what circumstances and by what authority they were 
assumed, the subject cannot be considered exhausted. The similarity of coats borne at a very 
early day by families seated in what may be called the four corners of England, is striking, viz. : 

Upton, op Northolme, Lincoln (page 2). Argent, a cross moline sable. 

Upton, op Upton, Cornwall (page 6), Sable, a cross moline argent. 

Upton, of Faversham. Kent (page 5), Sable, a cross florg argent. 

Upton, of Upton, Cheshire (Renaud's ' Prestbury.' p. 172), Argent, a plain cross vert. 

4. From the pedigrees printed at pages 1-4 and 18, 19, it appears that in the early part of the 
seventeenth century the Upton family, of Lincolnshire, was represented by descendants of that 
Hamond Upton, of Northolme, who married, first, Frances Smith, and. second, Elizabeth Sutton, 
or Mering. His will, No. 12 of the abstracts printed below, dated 1584, was proved by his widow 
Elizabeth in 1589. From somewhat conflicting evidence, I judge his " great charge of children" 
were : (by wife Frances), I. Hamond, eldest son ; II., Elizabeth ; (by wife Elizabeth) III., John, 
second son ; IV., Francis, third son ; V., Anne, second daughter (these five born before 1564) ; VI., 


Margaret ; VII., Helen ; VIII.. Isabel ; IX.. Jane; X.. Valentine ; XI., Ambrose (these six born 
between 1562 and 1584), with perhaps XII., Austin (probably born between 1584 and 1589), and 
possibly XIII.. Mary. If there was a Mary, she was evidently born after 1562, and married 
before 1684. I think he had no daughter Frances. Hamond. the eldest of these children, was 
of Northolme, in 1598, when he made his will. No. 17 of the abstracts. He married Frances 
Meeres, and had, besides daughters Faith and Dorothy, a son Valentine, under 18 in 1598, who 
married Bridgett Reade before 1634. The Trinity College MS. gives this Valentine brothers 
Austin and Hamon. Hamond Upton, of Northolme. who made will No. 31. was son of a 
Valentine, but whether his father was son or grandson of the twice-married Hamond does not 
appear. This younger Hamond was of Wainfleet, June 25. 1635, when he married Lucy Browne, 
of East Kirby, Lincoln, and he died at St. Andrew's, Holborn, Middx.. May 4, 1645. He had 
a daughter Frances, born at Northolme. June 1, 1644. His "only sister " Frances married Rev. 
Everard Dighton, vicar of Croft, Lincoln, April 23. 1638. Probably Julian, daughter of Hamon 
Upton, who, early in the fifteenth century, married Thomas Wilson, and Julian, daughter of 
Hamond Upton, who married John Atwell, were of this family. 

5. (Page 5.) This William Upton died in 1423, and was buried in Faversham church, as was 
his wife Alice before him in 1419. — Hasted's ' Kent,' ii.. 766, note b. 

6. Hasted says he died in 1430. In that year he had a legal cause tried by wager of battle, 
as appears from Stowe's ' Chronicle,' Howe's Ed., 1631. folio 371 : " The foure and twentieth of 
January [1430] a battel was done in Smithfield within the lists before the King [Henry VI.] 
betweene two men of Feversham in Kent, John Upton, notary, appelant, and John Downe, 
Gentleman, defendant. John Upton put upon John Downe that he and his compiers should 
imagine the king's death, the day of his coronation ; when they had long fought, the king took 
up the matter and forgave both parties." 

7. This Thomas Upton died in 1447. 

8. This Nicholas Upton joined with his brother in the sale of a manor in 1583. 

9. By his marriage with Mary Evering in 1565, John Upton acquired the manor of Wilderton, 
Kent. In 1583 he joined with his brother Nicholas in the sale of the manor house with all the 
demesne lands belonging to it (except one small piece called the manor-croft), and a moiety of 
the manor which, from its situation, from that time was known as North Wilderton ; but he 
retained the other moiety of the manor, which thereafter acquired the name of South alias 
Great Wilderton, and the manor-croft lying at the west end of Hocksted-green. — Hasted, ii., 
766 et seq. 

10. George Upton, late of Faversham, Gent., was buried in All Hallows, Barking, London, 
Feb. 21, 1619-20. 

11. This John Upton succeeded to his father's manor of South Wilderton. of which he died 
seised May 24, 1635, aged 53, and was buried in Faversham church. — Hasted, ibid. In his will, 
abstract No. 28, post, he disposed of a large landed estate. Berry gives Walter Upton and Martha 
Andrew sons John and William, but makes the " Joannes aet. 9 ann." eldest son of John Upton 
and Margaret Seth. This John, born 1610, married Anne, second daughter of Stephen Bunce, of 
Boughton Malherbe. He died in 1664, having devised the manor of South Wilderton to his 
daughter Anne, wife of Charles Castle. She in 1688 devised it to her brother-in-law George 
Naylor and another. 

About the year 1525 a John Upton, of Faversham, married Isabel, daughter of Simon Ladd. 
In 1652 Henry Ruffen, gent., (late John Upton,) claimed to hold of Milton manor part of the 
manor of Rapham, or Repham. Kent. His daughter. Jane Ruffen. afterwards carried it in 
marriage to a Franklyn. — Hasted, ii., 664 (d). 

12. (Page 6.) Of the arms represented on page 6, the first is that of Upton of Cornwall and 
Devon ; and, though the tinctures do not appear, may be blazoned Sable, a cross moline argent. 
Westcote's 'View of Devonshire' says, " Sable, a cross sarcely argent." Dr. Colby's edition of 
this Visitation says, '■ Sable, a cross fiory argent." In the second shield Upton is differenced 
with a mullet. The mullet indicates descent from a third son, and I do not see its propriety 
here, unless it expresses the fact, not shewn in the pedigree, but to appear hereafter, that this 
family descended from the third son of Thomas Upton and Joane Trelawney. Similarly, I think, 
the crescent on a mullet in the third shield expresses the fact that William Upton, who married 
Joane Punt, was second son of a third son. The other arms quartered in the last shield are 
Carnegie, or Carnother. Mules. Trelawny, Mohun, and Pennells. 

13. In Dr. Colby's edition of this Visitation, instead of Carnother, we have Carnegie. 

14. Sir John Maclean's ' History of Trigg Minor,' vol. iii., p. 384, priuting this pedigree, 
says, "John Upton of Upton 21st Richard 2, after of Tresiake [Trelask]=Margaret dau. of 
James and sister and coh. of John Mulys. lord of Trelaske. Cornwall. She was living 5 Hen. 4." 
Tuckett's ' Devonshire Pedigrees ' calls her " Margaret sister and coh. of John Muels." Dr. 
Colby says, " Mary, sister and coh. of John Mules." 

15. Maclean and Tuckett say, " Thomas Upton of Upton and Trelaske," and the former gives 
him a brother, William Upton of " Portlinch," Devon. 

16. (Page 7.) Maclean says this William Upton "of Trelaske, Coll. of Sub. Cornw. 1491= 
Isabel dau. and h. of Wm. Rosmadres," and places the, perhaps I should say a, Palmer marriage 
in the next generation. He continues the pedigree as follows : William Upton, by Isabel 


Rosmadres, had (1) John, (2) Anne, (3) Thomas Upton of Trelaske. This Thomas, who was 
living 33 Henry VIII., married Joan, daughter and heir of Richard Palmer of Launeeston, and 
died without male issue, leaving two daughters (coheiresses, each of whom had issue), viz. : 
Margaret (Margery), the elder, who married (settlement dated 19 August, 9 Henry VIII.) John, 
son and heir of William Lower of St. Winnow ; and Jane Upton, who married Nicholas Lower of 
Winnow, a brother of John. In constructing his version of this pedigree, Sir John Maclean had 
access to the family papers of the lord of Trelaske, since deceased. This fact, added to Sir John's 
very high reputation for accuracy and thoroughness, entitles his conclusions to great weight 
when he contradicts other authorities. 

The anonymous author of ' A Complete Parochial History of the County of Cornwall ' (1870), 
giving the descent of Upton manor, says, " John Upton died 1140 ; his son Andrew died 1170 ; the 
latter's son Hamlyn married the daughter and heir of Sir Andrew Treloske of Trelaske, son and 
heir of Sir Roger, and dying in 1218, was succeeded by his son Edward, who married the daughter 
and heir of S. Winnow, and died in 1284, leaving a son Richard, who married Agnes, daughter 
and heir of Walter Carnother, by whom he had a son John who, temp. Richard II., married 
Margaret, sister and coheir of John Mules, and left a son Thomas. Thomas, by his wife Joanna, 
daughter of the celebrated Sir John Trelawney, by Agnes Tregodick his wife, had three sons and 
three daughters. Two of the sons bore the name John, of whom the first, by wife Agnes, had 
one child, William, who died without issue, 1478, leaving to his uncles, William and John Upton, 
all his lands of Uppetoun, Trewynne, Hayes, Treswen, and Penventoun. The other son John, 
who was the third son, married, in 1460, Elizabeth, only daughter and heiress of William Mohun 
of Poselynche, and died in 1489, leaving issue. William or Thomas, brother of these two Johns, 
married Joanna, daughter and heir of Richard Palmer of Coombe, by whom he had two daughters, 
Margaret and Jane, one of whom carried Trelaske and the other S. Winnow to a Lower in 
marriage. One John Upton still held Upton. Cornwall, in 1613.'' 

Tuckett gives the children of Thomas Upton and Joan Trelawny as (1) John of Upton, (2) 
William, second son, heir to his brother 1477, married Joan, daughter and heiress of Richard 
Palmer, (3) Joan, wife of Richard Ryke, (4) Elizabeth, wife of John Becket, (5) John of Puslinch, 
married Elizabeth Mohun ; and to this latter John he assigns the two sons John named in the 
text, one of whom married Agnes Pennells. But Tuckett ^who, for Upton data, cites Harl. MSS. 
889, ff. 37. 57 ; 1080, f. 186 ; 1091, ff. 32, 29 B. ; 1163. f. 25 ; 1399, ft 17 B., 30 B. ; 1538, ft 68 B., 
106 B. ; 3288. ff. 106 B., 107 ; 5840. ff. 17, 33 B. ; 5871, ff. 13, 18 ; and Add'l MS. 14315, f. 20) 
states that '■ from a pedigree attached to a fine passed in the sixteenth century (by Nicholas 
Upton of Puslinch on some land inherited by him from the heiress of Mohun), the descent" in 
the text appears erroneous ; and suggests the following, which, for reasons to be stated hereafter, 
I believe to be the correct view of the matter, viz. : 

Thomas Upton of Upton and Trelaske.=j=Joan Trelawney.

Clannacombe. (2 dau.). ton. 

17. Tuckett says, "John Upton of Puslinch, temp. Hen. 7, 1 son." 

18. Tuckett calls William Upton's wife Joan Pound, or Pounte, and gives him a sister Joan, 
wife of William Hill of Shilston. 

19. Tuckett gives this John Upton a brother Thomas, and a sister Joan, wife of John Farwell 
of Brixham. 

20. Dr. Colby's edition says the wife was Ann, d. and h. of Cooper, etc. Tuckett gives 
this John Upton brothers, William and Nicholas, and sisters, Marshall, wife of Richard Sparke 
of Plympton, and Joan, wife of William Sparke of Dartmouth. 

21. Tuckett gives Arthur, besides Gertrude Fortescue, a wife Katherine, daughter of Hugh 
Culm of Culmstock : no issue. Also a sister Elizabeth, wife of Christopher Hody of Netherway. 

22. Instead of Rowse, Tuckett and Dr. Colby have " Rouse." The former mentions, besides 
the daughter, Elizabeth Upton, wife of John Hele of Stert in Diptford, her two sisters, Ann 
(1 dau.) and Gertrude (3 dau.). 

23. (Page 10.) For this pedigree I am indebted to the courtesy of J. Brooking Rowe, Esq., 
F.S.A.. and Mrs. Charlotte C. Yonge, mother of the present lord of Puslinch. Maclean agrees 
with this MS. in calling the first of the family " Thomas," instead of John. 

24. Notice that to Edward Upton is here given the place in the tree usually assigned to his 
brother John. 


25. It is doubtless by a mere mechanical mistake in copying that this Thomas Upton is in 
some pedigrees made son of that William who died in 1478. John and Elizabeth Upton certainly 
had a son Thomas. See No. 2 of abstracts of wills, 'post. 

26. After correctly stating that Phillippa, wife of George Upton, died in 1660, the pedigree 
absurdly gives her several children born after that year. All the children of George, born after 
1660, were by his wife Susanna Spurr. 

27. (Page 14.) Upton of Leeds. There are numerous Upton families in Cheshire and, 
indeed, scattered through Yorkshire, Lancashire, and Shropshire, apparently related, of whose 
origin very little is known, though some circumstances seem to point to the Uptons of Upton- 
Cressett. The family mentioned in the text is said to have resided for nearly three centuries 
at Deanwater in Cheshire, where successive John Uptons held property for many generations 
prior to the marriage with Alice Barton. An Upton House appears in or near Deanwater on 
old maps. 

28. Nichols' ' History of Leicestershire' states that the Elizabeth Everard, named in the 
text, afterwards married John Wright, and had a daughter Anne, baptized 15 Feb. 1762. I am 
credibly informed this is an error, and that Richard Upton was her only husband. 

29. (Page 16.) Bedlowe: Tuckett says, "Bellew." 

30. Tuckett says, " Edburga, dau. of Edward Troyse of co. Southampton.'' 

31. Blackdon : Tuckett says, " Blagdon." 

32. This John Upton, who married Agnes Pennells, has been considered, in later Visitations 
and by most writers, a younger son of John Upton, of the preceding pedigree, who married 
Elizabeth Mohun ; but, as explained in note 16, ante, he was probably identical with that John, 
and married both of these ladies. 

33. In the pedigree of Raleyghe, or Rawley, in this same Visitation, the father of Jane 
Raleigh, who married John Upton, is called Wimond. Elsewhere he is called Simon, Wyman, 
and Sir Wincomb Raleigh. 

34. Note that " s.p." here means only that she was without issue in 1564. 

35. (Page 17.) Somerset was visited in the years 1531, 1573, 1591, 1623, and 1672. The 
Uptons did not remove to Somerset until after 1531, and were, in this branch, extinct in the 
male line before 1623 ; so that they were cited to but two of these Visitations. 

Harl. MS. 1445 (which is the basis of Rev. F. W. Weaver's admirable edition of the Visitations 
of 1531 and 1573, with pedigrees from that of 1591) professes to contain a Visitation made in 
1565, but is. in fact, that of 1573. Harl. MS. 1559 is Richard Mundy's amalgamation of the 

Visitations of 1573, 1591, and 1623. '• The Visitation of Somerset. 1623. with Additious 

by R. Mundy," was privately printed in 1838 by Sir Thomas Phillipps, Bart. The latter part of 
the book, including the Upton pedigree (one of Mundy's "Additions "). was not revised, contains 
many errors, and is wanting in many copies. 

36. The mullets on a chief, borne as a difference, were perhaps dropped from the arms when 
the elder line, Upton of Trelaske. became extinct. See note 16, ante. 

37. I am authorized by Rev. F. W. Weaver to omit as erroneous the statement, which crept 
into his valuable book, that this William Upton married Jone Pounte. She was wife of his 
kinsman, William Upton of Luckton. 

38. Her name was Hone : Arms, three hone-stones, etc. 

39. John Bargus Yonge (b. 1821, d. 1863), a descendant of Mary Upton, the heiress of 
Puslinch, collected much valuable data relating to the Upton family, and, in a contribution to 
' Notes and Queries.' 2nd S. IX.. 227. corrected several errors in the received pedigree. 
Having access to family papers at Pusliuch, he is very high authority when speaking of that 
branch of the family. 

40. (Page 18.) See cut, page 4. 

41. I blazon the Wase coat with the utmost diffidence, as I am informed a very high authority 
has printed these arms as, '• Azure, a bend argent, as many mullets sable" 1 : which, I confess, I do 
not understand.

WL#ton of Wilton Cressett, ^tjropsljire.* 

In Shropshire there have been, time out of mind, three places bearing the name 
Upton, viz., 1, Upton Magna, a parish in Wellington division of the hundred of 
South Bradford ; 2, Waters-Upton, known also as Upton-Waters and Upton-Parva, 
a parishf in the same division ; (in 1245 Nicholas Upton gave the advowson of 
Waters-Upton to Shrewsbury Abbey ;) 3, Upton-Cressetc, a parish in the hundred 
of Strottsden, which seems to have been known also as Upton-Warin or -Warren, 
and Upton-super-Edge. Eyton considers it identical with the Ultone of Domesday, 
in Almondstree Hundred, which, we learn from Domesday, was held by " Edmund, 
a free man," temp. Edward, and by Reinald the Sheriff in 1086. This parish, which 
received a name from the Cressett family, almost certainly gave one, a century and 
a half earlier, to an Upton family, affording us an illustration of how the surname 
Upton was acquired. The same thing doubtless occurred in many other parts of 
England, as Upton was a very early local name in several other shires. 

Before the Conquest, Upton Magna was held by Siward, Earl of Northumber- 
land. Under King William, Baron Guerin or Warin the Bald was the first Norman 
Vicomte or Sheriff of Shropshire, and dwelt at Upton Magna. His widow married 
the Reinald mentioned above, who became Sheriff and was found by the Commis- 
sioners of the Conqueror the largest landowner in Recordiu Hundred. He was 
succeeded as Sheriff, in 1102, by Hugh, sou of the above Guerin. It has been 
conjectured that there was some family connection between Hugh and his successor 
Alan Fitz- Walter, who became Sheriff and lord of Upton Magna under Henry L, 
and that this Alan was identical with the first Alan de Opton mentioned below. 
Alan Fitz- Walter, who died 1153, had several children. From a younger son the 
royal house of Stuart claimed descent. The eldest son was ancestor of the Fitz- 
Alans, Earls of Arundel, and his descendants held "Upton cum mewbris'" as late 
as 1284. 

Alan de Opton is mentioned about 1138, and the same or another Alan de Opton 
held under the barony of Fitz- Alan in 1165. His successor seems to have been 
that William Gouin de Upton who was fined three merks by the Justices of the 
Forest for waste in Upeton. William Goon is mentioned in 1180, and with Robert 
Fitz-Aer was witness to a charter relating to lands in Corve, near Monk Hopton. 
Eyton assumes that these successive tenants of the manor of Upton were father and 
son, and that William Gouin or Goon was father of Hugo or Hugh de Hupton, who 
was recognizer in an assize Nov. 1194. This Hugh sat as juror in several causes 
at Salop Assizes Oct. 1203, and was himself subject to an amercement of i merk. 
He was named 10 May 1220 as visor of timber to be taken to repair Bridgnorth 
Castle. In 1225 was agistor of the King's forests ; Aug. 1226 sat on a great 
inquest ; Oct. 1237 was juror in a trial before the King at Worcester ; and in or 
about 1240 held £ fee in Opton or Hupton of Fitz-Alan's barony. 

* See Eyton's ' Antiquities of Shropshire.' 

+ Called a " parish '' in Bell's ' Gazetteer ; ' but in the will of Richard Upton, dated 1(52-1, he 
calls himself " of Waters Upton in the parish of Arcoll Magna." 


His successor, Thomas de Upton, was a juror 20 Jan. 1246. In 1255 the 
Strottsden jurors, of whom he was one, returned him as lord of Upton, in which 
were 3^ hides of land which he held in capite of John Fitz-Alan for i a knight's 
fee ; and he did suit to the Hundred Court, and paid the Sheriff 14d. for stretward 
and 28d. for mot fee, but did no suit to County Court. He probably died in July 
1256, and his name appears 3 Feb. 1262 on an essoign roll of persons then dead. 

William and Hugh de Upton, successors of Thomas, appear as concerned in an 
assize of novel disseisin in Upton July 1256. William was a verderer of the Royal 
Forests 22 Oct. 1239 and March 1262, and a juror Jan. 1259, Sept. 1263, and Feb. 
1283. He had, besides a son Adam de Upton, mentioned 1311-12, a son John de 
Upton, who about 1284 held Hopton of Richard Fitz-Alan by service of ^ a knight's 
fee. This John was a juror in Oct. 1292, and was then reported of full age, but 
not yet knighted. He was summoned to serve in person in parts beyond seas, 
muster at London Sunday next after the Octave of St. John Baptist, 25 Edward I. 
(1297-8). He was a juror on the perambulation of June 1300, and died 1301. By 
his wife Isabel, whom he names in a deed, he left a son John de Upton, under age 
Sept. 1305. He had livery of Meadowley 3 Oct. 1306, and was returned lord of 
Upton March 1316. By deed 18 Edward III. (1344-5) he enfeoffed his son G-uy 
and Margaret, wife of Guy, in lands lately held by John, son of the grantor. The 
father was dead in 1362, having had by his wife Joanna (named in deed of her son 
G-uy, 40 Edward III.) four children, viz., 1, Nicholas de Upton, who received a grant 
of land from his brother Guy 36 Edward III., and was dead in 1367. 2, John de 
Upton, who was dead in 1344, s.p. et v.p. 3, Guy de Upton, born before 1312, 
received a grant of lands from his father 18 Edward III. He is called lord of 
Upton in a deed 36 Edward III., by which he grants Stapeley, which he had by 
gift of John his brother, to Nicholas his brother. In 40 Edward III. (1366-7) he 
granted to John, rector of Upton, probably in trust, the manor and advowson of 
Upton, and lands which Joanna his mother and Nicholas his brother held for their 
lives in Upton and Stapeley. By his wife Margaret (named in a deed 1344) he had 
a son Hugh, whose wife's name was Margaret. In 46 Edward III. John atte Broke, 
parson of Upton, released to Hugh de Upton the lands deeded by his father Guy to 
the rector of Upton, and in 6 Richard II. (1382) Hugh entailed the family estates, 
by which entail, on his death without issue, they passed to his uncle by marriage, 
Thomas Cressett, or the latter's heirs. 4, Constance de Upton, daughter and ulti- 
mately heiress of John, married Thomas Cressett of Garmeston, who, as has been 
stated, acquired the Upton estates. From his family the manor of Upton received 
the additional name " Cressett."* 

* Though the estates passed to an heiress, it is not to be supposed the Upton family ceased 
to exist in Shropshire. Doubtless it was perpetuated through many younger sons, whose 
descendants are scattered through the west and north of England. It is by no means improbable 
that the Uptons of Leeds {ante, page 14) were of this stock.

advantage of the present head of the family, and of all persons who would fain trace the obscure 
line of the testator's descendants.

of all the Upton wills recorded in the District Eegistry at Lincoln, from its beginning in 1507 to 
the year 1750. 

The Episcopal Registers of the Diocese of Lincoln (which, before the Eeformation, comprised 
the counties of Lincoln, Rutland, Leicester, Northampton, Oxford, Buckingham, Bedford, Hert- 
ford, and Huntingdon) contain no Upton wills between the years 1280 and 1547. 

f The volumes of these Registers are designated by the years which they include.

* The testator is that Nicholas Upton described in the Visitation of 1564, printed on a 
previous page, as marrying first Alice Flite and second Margaret Sutton. 

•f Eobert Barret was the first husband of testator's daughter Dorothy. 

J The son John Upton made will No. 148. 

§ The son Hamond Upton made will No. 12. 

|j This is, of course, the distinguished Knight of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Sir 
Nicholas or the Chevalier Upton, whom the Uptons of Devonshire have long been prone to claim 
as a fair branch from their family tree. He is called " Knight of the Eodes " in the Lincoln 
Visitation of 1564. He did not long remain in Lincolnshire to attend to his " swannes," but was 
soon " promotyd by the Eeligion," and early became one of the most valiant Knights of the Order. 
Even a search of the records at Malta does not disclose many facts regarding him. If it is true, 
as has been stated, that he made an attack on the famous corsair Dragut at Tarsheu in Malta in 
1546, that may have been the service for which he was rewarded by being chosen, Oct. 5, 1547, 
" Auditor Computorum " for the " venerable Language of England." Nov. 15, 1547, he was 
appointed, by Grand Master Omedes, " Commander of Repton (or Ripston) in the Language of 
England," and shortly after he was exalted to the dignity of Turcopolier — the third dignitary in 
the Convent ; one entry states that the Grand Master and Counsel chose him, " Nicolaum optum." 
" in locum tenentem Turcopulerij seu turcopuleriatus " 22 Dec. 1547, while another says they chose 
" nicolaum octum '' "in tercupulerium relegionis " 5 Nov. 1548. In 1551 Dragut attempted to 
land in Malta, but was repulsed by the knights headed by Upton ; and upon that occasion he 
added greatly to his laurels. He is said to have died in July of that year, probably of sunstroke, 
though one account says " of his wounds." 

^J Testator was eldest son of Nicholas Upton who made will No. 147.

with the year 1700. The Act Books for the Archdeaconry of Stow contain administrations from 
1530, and are indexed from 1580. The above, from the Lincoln Archdeaconry, is the only Upton 
administration in these indices.

as a merchant for thirty years, and, by his integrity and skill, advanced in the good opinion of 
his country as much as he increased in wealth, while he enhanced the fame of the most

Walter de Upton was witness to a charter in 1390. 

Lands were originally held by Fulc de Oresby. In 1546 Thomas Lyttlebury, 
Esq., was heir to John his brother of three cottages of 6s. 8d., three gardens, etc., 
in Northohne, held of the King, as of the manor of Northolnie, by fealty and five- 
pence rent. These lands, together with 33 acres of pasture and 400 acres of marsh 
in Wainfleet and Skegness, came into the possession of Nicholas Upton, whose first 
wife, Alice, was daughter of John Lyttlebury. Northohne Hall was still standing 
in 1829, and the estate then belonged to Lord Bayning.

William de Cravene, temp. John, had issue two sons, Richard de Uptune and

by them to Sir Richard Phytun, Knt , of all their rights in Farlingbrom. (Cheshire 
Domesday Roll.) .... The mesne manor, or such part of it as may have been held 
by the Uptons, .... most likely fell into coparceny by the middle of the 13th 
century .... 

Dounes. — This family (Dounes) was also connected by the marriage of Margery 
de Dounes into the family of Uptons of Upton, already mentioned, and who again 
occur here in 1329 in the person of Randle de Upton ; and, temp. Edw. III., Edward 
de Upton married the said Margery Dounes. The Uptons held some part of their 
lands of the Dounes, probably the part held by Richard de Craven ; and a messuage 
and ten acres in Upton held by Robert del Dounes, in socage, was granted by 
Richard de Upton to Sir Edward de Wever, but before 13 Henry VI. [1435], in 
whose inquisition of that year they occur. The latest descendants of this family 
(Upton of Upton) may perhaps be discovered in the possession of the Spittal House 
in Prestbury, temp. Jac. I. The arms of Upton of Upton are described by Dr. 
Renaud in his ' Prestbury ' as Arg., a cross vert (which is also given " azure"). 

From Renaud's ' Prestbury.' 

" I have not been able to find an owner for the shield which bears a plain Latin 
cross charged with five lozenges. The family of Upton of Upton in Prestbury 
parish [Cheshire] bore Argent, a plain cross vert, and probably the addition of the 
lozenges was a mark of cadency by some member of this very little understood

"In the survey of Milton manor taken anno 1652, Henry Ruffen, gent., late

From Polwhele's ' Devonshire.' 
" Lupton lieth in this parish (Brixham), the ancient dwelling of the name of 
Peverel, of which tribe I find ten descents to have inhabited here. John Peverel's 
decease without issue left it to Agnes his sister, married to John Upton," etc4 

* Ruffen alias Upton. An account of this change of name would be of interest. 

f These might be supposed to be the arms of John Upton impaling those of his wife Joane 
Trelawny, as the present Trelawny Baronets bear the not very dissimilar coat : Argent, a chevron, 
sable between three oak leaves. But they are doubtless the arms of Lower impaling Upton. Sir 
Nicholas Lower. Kt., bore Sable, a chevron between three roses argent, quartering Upton. 

% I make this quotation to show the danger of following any authority. Polwhele, who wrote 
a voluminous history of the county and traced ten descents of the tribe of Peverel, would be 
supposed to know whereof he spoke. But half a score of writers, of as much standing as he, 
insist that Agnes, heiress of Lupton and wife of Upton, was sister and heiress of John Pennells.

sister Sophia. 



The will of Vincent Wolby of Thorpe next Wainfleet, co. Lincoln, 4 June 1591, 
mentions " Haniond Upton the younger," " my father in law and sister Upton," and 
"xxxij acres of land in Thorpe late Mr. Upton's;" and appoints " my brother 
Hamond Upton, Esqr.," executor. 

The will of John Copledike, Esqr., of Harrington, 23 June 1582, mentions 
" my godson Mr. Hamond Upton." 

The will of Dame Margaret Sutton, vowis, 1 Oct. 1525, mentions " my doghter 
Upton." — lladdison's l Lincolnshire Wills.' 

Richard Upton was Sheriff of London temp. Edw. III., 1336. 

William Upton was Bailiff of Exeter 1423, 1426, 1428, and 1429, and 
Mayor 1440. 

The fortifications of Sebastopol were built for the Russians by Col. Upton, an 
English engineer, and his sons. — Anonymous note. 

The anonymous author of ' The Norman People,' a plausible writer whom I 
dare not follow, says: "Adam and Barnard de Upton held Upton, 13 th century, 
from the Honour of Totness," citing Testa de Neville. He also asserts that they 
were ancestors of Viscount Templetown, and thinks they were probably descended 
from Ralph Fitz-Stephen, temp. Henry II., and that, from their arms, they appear to 
have been a branch of De la Folie of Normandy, seated in "Wiltshire.

* My purpose is to state the arms actually used by Upton families, without affirming or 
questioning the propriety of the use. So many Upton families in every part of England ranked 
as gentle at such a very early day that probably few Uptons exist who are not descended from 
an armiger ; but it seems quite certain that some of these families should not, as they do, bear 
their arms without marks of cadency. The dates given in the text are years in which the arms 
are known to have been used, but not always the earliest years. 

f I suppose this is a modern cadet branch of the house next mentioned, but I have no further 
knowledge of it. 

X This appears to have been the original coat of the ancient Upton family seated at Upton 
and Trelask, Cornwall, and is the coat quartered by the Lowers who, in the first half of the 
sixteenth century, married the co-heiresses of the elder line of this family. Before the time of 
the Visitations these Uptons had divided into four great houses, of which the eldest, as just 
stated, became extinct in the male line. Geoffry Upton of Wells, representing the second house, 
appeared at the Visitation of Somerset in 1573, bearing : Sable, a cross moline argent, on a chief of 
the second three mullets of the field. This mark of cadency may have been inherited, as both his 
father and grandfather were younger sons. He executed his will in 1582 with a seal bearing : 
Sable, a cross moline argent, a crescent for difference, perhaps indicating that he was a second 
son ; but at the Visitation of 1591 the allowance of his son George's claim to bear the family arms 
undifferenced indicates that the male line of every elder branch had then become extinct, a fate 
which befell this house also, eighteen years later. The two younger houses had appeared at the 
Visitation of Devon in 1564 in the persons of William Upton of Puslinch and John Upton of 
Lucton, representing, as I believe, the issue of two marriages of a common grandfather, the first 
venturing to bear the family arms undifferenced. The Lucton house was hardly more happy ; 
for, commendably attempting to difference its coat, it had selected arms which Richard Suwart 
or Siward had borne at Caerlavrock, A.D. 1300 — Sable, a cross flory argent. 

At the Visitations of 1620 the pedigree of the Puslinch house was taken in Cornwall, but the 
arms are not mentioned ; while in Devon, John Upton, representing the Lupton (Lucton) branch, 
seems to have presented two shields, each bearing : Sable, a cross moline argent, the one 
differenced with a mullet, the other with a crescent on a mullet. The latter coat was claimed for 
his second son at the Visitation of London in 1687. In more recent times the representatives of 
the last-named John Upton have borne, Sable, a cross moline argent, without any mark of

f As to the right to quarter Raleigh, see 'Notes and Queries,' 6th S., VII., 217. 

X So say Debrett and, prior to 1851, Burke ; and these arms, properly differenced, Lord 
Templetown is certainly entitled to bear. But Papworth and later editions of Burke describe 
the cross moline as " or." As the arms, Sable, a cross moline or, were from ancient times the 
property of the Brayne, Tadington, and Tudington families (vide Papworth, Burke, Glover, and 
Hart MSS.), I suppose it will hardly be contended (except by that by no means small class of 
persons who seem to consider that institution not only infallible but omnipotent) that even the 
College of Arms could give Lord Templetown any right to bear them. I think Nicholas Upton, 
nearly four hundred and fifty years ago, stated, with no less correctness than boldness, a law 
which is still in force, when he said : " Et hie nbta, quod ilia Arma que habemus ex largitione 
Principis non recipiunt questionem, quoniam nee hoc Princeps vult .... nisi aliquis ipsa Arma 
privs portaverit. Quod quidem meum est justo titulo, postea sine facto meo a me evelli non 
debet, n-ec hocfacere Princeps potest . . . ." — De Mil. Off. ad Jin. 

§ Sic Burke : If Lord Templetown bears the cross on his own shield argent, of course this 
should read " on his sinister arm a shield of the arms." 

|| From the bookplate, about one hundred years old, of Dr. "William Bayly Upton of Cashel. 
The shield is quarterly of four : 1 and i, Upton ; 2 and 3, Bayly. 

^f Perhaps also, sometimes, " a plain Latin cross charged with five lozenges." 


16. Upton of Faversham, Kent (1619): — Arms: Sable, on a cross patonce* 
argent a trefoil azure. Quartering : Or, five couple-closes azure, in dexter chief

a bezant. Quarterings : (1564 and 1592) Auncells, Legborne, Magalene, and Wace ; 
(1634) The same, and Copledike. Crest: A demi-wolf rampant argent. 

18. Upton (now) of Mitcham, Surrey: — Arms: (Circa 1740) Argent, on a 
cross moline sable a bezant.f Crest: (Circa 1740 — 1889) Same as No. 17. 
Motto : (Adopted circa 1850) Semper verus. 

19. Upton of Sussex : — Arms : (Granted April 9, 1569) Sable, a cross fiory argent 
charged with a trefoil vert .J Crest : Two dolphins hauriant and entwined 
saltierwise or, finned azure. 

20. Upton of G-aydon, Warwickshire : — Arms : Argent, a chevron between 
three roses gules. 

21. Upton of Wiltshire (1380) -.—Arms: Chequy, a fess.§ 

22. Upton of Worcestershire : — Crest : Same as No. 5. 

23. Upton of . . . . (England) : — Crest: On a chapeau azure, turned up ermine, 
a griffin passant argent. 

* This cross is of ten flory, sometimes moline. Berry, from the quartered coat, blazoned the 
Upton arms, " Quarterly sable and or (sic), in first and fourth quarters a cross flory of the last. 

f It will be noticed that these arms are identical with those allowed Upton of Northolme at 
the Visitation of Lincolnshire in 1634, the bezant being, in both instances, really a difference. 

X This coat, which strikingly resembles that of Upton of Faversham, Kent, suggests that some 
descendant of Thomas Upton of Upton, Cornwall, may have undertaken to form a coat from the 
arms of that ancestor and those of his wife Joane Trelawney.

Wilts in 1380 ; but the seal may have been a borrowed one.

* The two largest collections of Upton books are in the British Museum and the private 
library of the author ; but these are far from complete. Many of the works mentioned in the 
text are exceedingly scarce, and of a few of them no copy is known to exist. Having been 
forced, therefore, to depend to some extent upon printed and MS. lists, I cannot vouch for the 
correctness of all the titles ; nor dare I hope the list in the text is a complete one. 

It has been manifestly impossible to note the hundreds of articles of greater or lesser im- 
portance contributed by Uptons to current periodical literature, and I have mentioned in the text 
only works which have appeared in book or pamphlet form. But I may here note the following 
persons whose writings should not be wholly overlooked : 

G. Melville Upton of Placerville, Cal. (b. 1861), has contributed numerous articles to the 
'Argonaut,' the 'Labour Enquirer,' and the ' Overland Monthly.' Of these I note " My First 
Wedding," in the ' Overland' for Sept. 1885. 

Harriet {Taylor) Upton (b. 185 , wife of George Whitman Upton, Esq., of Warren, Ohio),, 
among other writings of great merit, has contributed to the ' American Magazine ' a " Sketch 
of Mrs. John A. Logan," and a paper on the " Japanese Koto." Her " Children of the White 
House," an original and valuable contribution to American History, which will be published in 
book form, is appearing as a serial in ' Wide Awake ' for 1888 and 1889, admirably 

Julia Aim (SJwrmati) Upton (b. 1833, wife of Hon. John Bean Upton of Big Bapids, Michi- 
gan) has compiled a book designed to record the pedigree, vital statistics, and history of 
individuals and families. It is hoped this useful work will be published within a few months. 

f I suppose she was the daughter of the late John S. Upton, Esq., of Glenstar, co. Limerick. 

% General Upton had just completed, at the time of his death, a system of Infantry Tactics 
which differs materially from his earlier one. The question of adopting this new system is now 
under consideration by the War Department of the United States.

* The Government of the United States has undertaken to publish this great work which 
General Upton left in MS. 

I have every reason to suppose General Upton also published, in 1873, his Tactics for Artillery 
and Cavalry, assimilated to his Infantry Tactics, but I have not seen these books, and do not find 
them mentioned in Prof. Michie's ' Life and Letters.' 

f I suppose in this modest " J." Upton we have two or three single gentlemen rolled into one. 
The 'Greek Anthology ' may be Rev. James Upton's UolkI\ti 'IcrTopla mentioned below.

Appleton's ' American Encyclopaedia.'

* Of the origin and parentage of Dr. Nicholas Upton nothing whatever is known. Bishop 
Tanner, from Wood's MSS., tells us he was a Fellow of New College, Oxford, graduated in Civil 
Law, and was beneficed in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. Prince, following Fuller, says he spent 
his younger years in study at Oxford. It seems to me exceedingly probable that he was that Nic. 
Upton, L.L.B., who was instituted to Chedzoy, Somerset, as Bev. F. W. Weaver's vigilance has 
discovered, Aug. 14, 1427. (See Weaver's ' Somerset Incumbents.') This is not necessarily 
inconsistent with his own statement that he spent his youth abroad in arms, following the 
fortunes of Thomas de Montacute, Earl of Salisbury ; and explains the fact that the Duke of 
Gloucester, the Maecenas of his time, found him, as early as 1428, a man of great learning, 
"in utroque jure adeptus." Certain it is that he was present with the Earl of Salisbury 
at the siege of Orleans, and saw the latter receive the mortal wound from which, eight days later, 
he died Nov. 3, 1428. Nor could his connection with his patron have been slight, for the latter 
named him as executor of his will, in which capacity he was cited March 20, 1436. (See ' Early 
Lincoln Wills.') But before this date, and apparently immediately after Salisbury's death, 
Humphrey (Plantagenet), Duke of Gloucester, took him under his powerful protection, and, after 
he had spent some further time at Oxford, in 1431 appointed him Canon of the Church of Wells. 
He held the living of Stapleford, in Sarum Diocese, in 1434 ; was admitted Canon of Salisbury ; 
and, in 1446, was installed as Precentor of the latter Cathedral. In 1452 he was sent to Borne to 
solicit from Nicholas V. the canonization of Bishop Osmond. He reached the Eternal City in 
June of that year, but, having quarrelled with his associate, one Simon Houchin,'was recalled by 
the Dean and Chapter of Salisbury, and returned home May 20, 1453. He died in Salisbury in 
1457. He was the first Englishman to reduce Heraldry to a science, and his great work, which 
has never been wholly superseded, is the fountain from which all subsequent writers have drawn. 
He dedicated it to his patron, at whose request it was written — to " Exccllentissimo fy illustrissimo 
Prinoipi $ domino meo singular i, Humfrido filio,fratri, $ Regum Patruo, Duel Glocestrie, 
Comiti Pembrochie, fy magno Camerario Anglic"

and even confound it with other woi'ks, as is shewn in the next note.

tari et Factis Illustribus ' (meaning the work mentioned in the text), is thought to have been 
written about 1-481, and intended as an addition to her work, printed in 1486 at St. Albans, and 
commonly called ' The Boke of St. Albans.' entitled ' The Bokys of Hawkynge and Huntynge, 
and also of Cootarmuris at St. Albans.' Her completed work (if we may call it hers) was printed 
by Wynkyn de Worde in 1496 with the title : ' Treatyse perteynynge to Hawkynge, Huntynge, 
and Fysshynge with an Angle ; Also a right noble Treatyse on the Lygnage of Cot Armours, end- 
ynge with a Treatyse which specyfyeth of Blasynge of Armys.' This is the work which has been 
confounded with Upton's, from which the heraldic portion of it was adopted. Bisse edited 
Upton from six MS. copies, which he particularly describes. 

* Bisse gives a very fair reason for thinking this work also was written by Nicholas Upton, 
in his youth. 

■j- This handsome volume is adorned with a large number of illustrations. Perfect copies of 
it are now quite scarce. 

J I suppose she was the widow (b. Peirce) of Hon. Samuel Upton of Castine, Me. See note 
on No. 26. below. 

§ I am not sure this work ever appeared in book form. It is incorporated in his 'Newmarket 
and Arabia.' The author frequently contributed essays and reviews to the press, sometimes over 
the signature " English Uhlan." It is to be regretted that to the admirable pedigrees of horses 
which he affixed to his ' Newmarket,' he did not add a chart of his own family. 

|| I suppose this is Hon. Samuel Upton (b. 1784, d. 1842), who lived for some years at Castine, 
Maine. But whether his book was a poem, an essay on finance, or a treatise on cod-fish banks, 
I know not. 

^[ Miss Upton has been a frequent contributor to the periodical press of translations and 
original articles. Among the more recent of these are " Sympneumata : A Report of the contents 
of a work by Laurence Oliphant," contributed to the ' Journal of Speculative Philosophy ' for 
Jan. 1887 ; and <: The Psychology of a Saint," printed in the ' Overland Monthly ' for 
June 1887.

* Here again I have, doubtless, collected under one name the writings of several persons. 
Probably the second, as well as the first, of the works named is merely a reprint of one of the 
poems of William Upton, No. 30, below. The name of the author of the 'Geometria' is given 
also as William M. Upton. 

f " The Lass of Richmond Hill," first printed in the 'Public Advertiser' of Aug. 3, 1789, 
and " Abraham Newland," a song very popular at the beginniog of this century, are usually 
attributed to him. See Nos. 24 and 28, above.

Paa£ callcti WL#ton. 

The name " Upton," meaning a tun* upon a hill or rising ground, f was applied 
by our Anglo-Saxon ancestors, as might be expected, to very many tuns so situated, 
in many parts of England. At a later day this name, originally applied to a par- 
ticular elevation, in some instances became attached to the surrounding parish or 
manor, or to a considerable town which arose at or near the spot ; and, when family 
names began to come into use, furnished a natural and convenient surname for the 
lords or tenants of the manor. In modern times numerous places, in America and 
elsewhere, have received the name Upton from more ancient ones, or from prominent 
men or families whose surname was derived, as we have seen, from the ancient seats 
of their race. 

About eighty-five places seem to have borne this name,:}: unless, as I fear, there 
are a few duplicates in the following list : — 

Upton, Berks, a parish in the hundred of Theale, 1\ miles S.W. by "W. of 

Here are slight remains of a church which formerly belonged to Upton-Greys, once a distinct 
parish, but consolidated with this in 1442. 

Upton, Berks, a chapelry in the parish of Blewbury, hundred of Moreton, 5 
miles N.N.E. of East Usley. 

* The tun of the Saxon was his central point in the wilderness or hostile country in which he 
cast his lot ; his headquarters and place of refuge, roughly corresponding with the word :< kraal," 
used in South Africa. The idea of hedging, fortifying, or protecting is in the root of the word ; 
and the first tuns were more or less strongly and more or less permanently fortified. Gradually 
the idea of defence, implied in the name, was lost, and the tun, ton, or town acquired, or rather 
retained, a significance not differing greatly from that of our word " village." 

f I cannot agree with those who suggest a different origin and meaning for the Upton name, 
claiming that, from King Offa or some chieftain named Offa or Uffa, a people became known as 
the Offingas, Uffingas, or Uppingas ; that their abode, by a well-known rule, was called Uffington 
orUppington (that is, the tunoi the Uffiugas or Uppingas) ; and that this in time was abbreviated 
to Upton. I will not urge the fact that the patronymical names Offingas, Uffingas, or Uppingas 
have not yet been found in any Anglo-Saxon charter, for I think Kemble is justified in inferring 
their existence from local names still extant. (' Saxons in England,' vol. i., chapter ii., 
and Appendix A.) But he infers their existence not from " Upton " but from " Uppington " (or 
more exactly, "Ofingas" from Ovington, "Uffingas" from Uffington, and "Upingas" from 
Uppington). The tun of the Uppingas was Uppington, and still holds its ancient name. I have 
not been able to find the slightest evidence that the name of any Uppington was shortened to 
Upton ; but, on the other hand, we have reason to believe the two places and names existed side 
by side in ancient times, as they do to-day. 

X The similar name Lupton is quite ancient ; but the name of Lupton, Devon, is merely a 
corruption (occasioned by the presence and influence of an Upton family resident there in the 
fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries) of its ancient name Lucton or Luckton.

£ott# on fyt preceding lirlJiflree* 

(1) The following are the chief sources of information consulted in the preparation of this 
pedigree : The extracts from public records, etc., previously printed in these pages ; letters, 
deeds, and other family papers supplied by members of the several families and others ; the 
editions of the ' Visitations of Devon in 1620 ' and ' Cornwall in 1620,' published by the Harleian 
Society; Colby's ' Visitation of Devon in 1564 '; Weaver's ' Visitation of Somerset'; Phillipps' 
' Visitation of Somerset in 1623'; Westcote's 'View of Devon'; Tuckett's 'Devonshire Pedi- 
grees ' ; Maclean's ' Trigg Minor ' ; Dwyer's ' Diocese of Killaloe ' ; Le Neve's ' Catalogue of 
Knights ' ; Noble's ' Spanish Armada ' ; Lower's ' Patronymica Brittanica ' ; Gilbert's ' Historical 
Survey of Cornwall ' ; Polwhele's ' History of Devon ' ; ' Complete Parochial History of Corn- 
wall'; Jewer's ' Heraldic Church Notes'; Lysons's 'Magna Brittanica'; Weaver's 'Somerset 
Incumbents ' ; ' Notes and Queries,' passim ; ' Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,' passim ; 
' Peerages' of G. E. C, Nicholas, and Burke ; Burke's ' Landed Gentry ' ; and the MS. collections of 
the Compiler. For the first six generations of the pedigree I have been forced to take my 
information at second hand, and of this part of the pedigree I can only say I have spared no 
pains to winnow the wheat from the chaff and preserve only what seems worthy of credence. 
But from about the year 1150 some rays of light from deeds, wills and other records begin to 
fall upon our subject, and our sources of knowledge of the period from early in the sixteenth to 
the middle of the eighteenth century are quite satisfactory. Beyond the latter date I have not 
undertaken to print extracts from the public records, but family papers fairly supply their 
place so far as concerns the branches given in the pedigree ; so that this part of the pedigree, 
while I dare not hope for absolute freedom from error, may be considered substantially correct, 
though of course not complete. 

(2) The manor of Upton, Cornwall, which gave a surname to this family, originally extended 
into several parishes, the manor-house being in Lewannick. It descended in the elder line of 
the family to William Upton of Trelaske, who in 1477 granted to it his uncles William and John 
Upton, both of whom are styled " of Upton.'' Here it seems to have ceased to be the portion of 
the elder son, for the coheiresses of the " uncle '' William's son Thomas do not seem to have 
carried it in marriage to the Lowers. According to J. B. Yonge, John Upton of Puslinch, son of 
the " uncle " John, held it about the end of the fifteenth century. In 1564 Jeffrey Upton of 
Wells and William Upton of Puslinch, grandsons respectively of the two " uncles '' mentioned 
above, joined in a fine concerning it which no doubt fixed its future descent, but the terms of 
that fine I have been unable to ascertain, nor do I find the manor mentioned in the subsequent 
portion of any pedigree of the family. But from the terrier of the parish we know that one 
John Upton held closes of land still called Upton in 1613. "A descendant " of the Uptons, we 
are told, sold it to one Wadge, whose descendant sold it, before 1812, to Colonel Rodd, who seems 
to have taken down the old mansion-house and erected on its site a farmhouse for the tenant. 
The property now seems to be held by Rodd of Trebartha Hall, Launceston. 

(3) Most writers, following the authority of the ' Visitation of Devon in 1620,' call the first of 
the family John Upton. Original investigation on such a point not being within my power, I am 
content to follow Sir John Maclean and the Puslinch pedigree in calling him Thomas. Readers 
familiar with the ancient chirography will readily comprehend how a careless eye might read 
" Johannes'' for " Thomas," or vice versa. 

(4) While it is not at all improbable that Hamelyn Upton married a Trelaske, the old 
pedigree-makers were in error in supposing that marriage (if such a marriage occurred) brought 
to the Uptons the manor of Trelaske. That property was acquired through the Mulys marriage 
three generations later. 

(5) I do not doubt that the name of the fourth representative of the family was John. I 


fancy there is no other foundation for " Edward " than the fact that some one read that his son 
was found ",s. and h. of Edw. U.," where the record said " s. and h. 4 Edw. III." 

(6) The surname of Richard Upton's wife is given variously as Carnother, Carwather, 
Carnather, Cornuther, and Carnegie. 

(7) The manor of Trelaske remained, as shewn in the pedigree, the principal seat of the elder 
line of this Upton family for about a century and a half. It then passed to the Lowers through the 
marriage of Nicholas Lower with the coheiress of Upton. They held the barton and at least a 
moiety of the manor until about the end of the seventeenth century. In 1720 the whole manor 
was held by an Addis, from whom it passed in 1741 to the family of Archer now of Trelaske, who 
still hold it. The present representative of this family is descended from the Uptons through 
the marriage of his ancestor with Dorothy Eyre Yonge, daughter of Rev. John Yonge 
of Puslinch, descendant and representative of Dr. James Yonge, who married the coheiress of 
Upton of Puslinch. (See note 22 below.) " Trelaske House," said Gilbert in 1820, " displays 

an association of ancient and modern architecture The buildings are seated on the 

northern side of a park which gently slopes to a sheet of water overhung with a variety of stately 

foliage There is .... an air of dignity diffused over every part of this domain from the 

appearance of its extensive woods, rising and falling in beautiful succession over hill and dale. 
The trees are principally oak, which have grown to an immense size, are very aged, and still very 
flourishing ; their wide-spreading branches and luxurious leafage are beautifully contrasted by 
the slender firs which rise in stately clumps over the principal eminences." 

(8) The reader whose attention has never been called to a curious custom of our ancestors, 
which is now, happily, extinct, may feel incredulous at finding assigned to Thomas Upton two 
sons both bearing the name John, and both, apparently, living at the same time. Yet nothing 
can be more certain than that it was not an infrequent thing in England, even as late as the 
seventeenth century, for parents to give a child a christian name already borne by a living 
brother or sister of the infant. In my own slender reading I have met at least a dozen instances 
of this custom, and I could mention one instance where three brothers, all living at the same time 
and all legitimate, each bore the name William. It will be observed that in the pedigree from 
the ' Visitation of Devon in 1620 ' these two Johns are placed in the next generation ; but that 
that arrangement is erroneous is amply proven by the deed of William Uppeton of Trelaske 
noted at page 79, as well as by abundant other evidence. 

(9) I consider myself safe in following Maclean in making Isabel Rosmadres mother of 
William Upton's children. I find no other authority for the usual statement that William 
Upton married Joane Palmer than the pedigree in the 'Visitation of Devon in 1620,' i.e. a state- 
ment made a century and a half after the event by a country gentleman, not his descendant, 
and residing in another shire. On the other hand, when Sir John Maclean, a careful and 
experienced genealogist, made the statement that William Upton married Isabel Rosmadres and 
placed the Palmer marriage in the next generation, he had access to important family papers 
and other records. The ' Parochial History ' tries to avoid the difficulty by making one man of 
this William Upton and his son Thomas. (See note 16, page 21, ante.) 

(10) Westcote and Tuckett give Isabel Upton sisters Joan, wife of Richard Ryk, and Elizabeth, 
wife of John Becket ; but these ladies were daughters of Robert Blerick. See ' Visitation of 
Devon, 1564.' John Bargus Yonge, who had her will, calls Isabel Upton "only daughter." 
(See note 39, page 22, ante.) 

(11) See note 25, page 22, ante. 

(12) For descendants of Margaret and Jane Upton, coheiresses of Upton of Trelaske, see 
pedigrees of Lower in Sir John Maclean's elaborate ' History of the Deanery of Trigg Minor.' 
See also note 7, supra. 

(13) From the will of Jeffrey Upton, we know he had a brother Richard ; and from the will 
of Richard Upton of Shepton Mallet, dated 1592, we know he was nearly related to Jeffrey, for he 
calls the latter's children his " cousins." The word " cousin,'' as is well known, frequently 
meant nephew or niece, and I have little doubt that Richard Upton who made the will of 1592 
was brother, not nephew, of Jeffrey. Yet, out of deference to the word " cousin," and because 
fain to adopt the arrangement least liable to mislead, I have not ventured, in the pedigree, to 
make one man out of the, perhaps, two Richards. I know of no proof that Jeffrey's brother 
Richard had a son of that name. 



(14) For a full account of the Strode and Bisse families and Elizabeth Upton's descendants 
by her second husband see ' Miscellanea Gen. et Her.,' Second Series, I., 322 et sea., and II., 145. 
By William Strode she had sons Jeffrey, William, and George Strode, and daughters Mary and 
Thomasine. By Edward Bisse she had three sons Edward, Upton, and Philip, of whom Upton 
Bisse was a well-known clerygyman, instituted Rector of Almsford, Somerset, 27 Dec. 1620. I 
have been unable to learn whether the learned editor of Upton's ' De Militari Officio ' was of 
this family. Her son Jeffrey Strode was long supposed to have been father of William Strode, 
M.P. for Beeralston, one of the " Five Members " demanded by Charles I. ; but that patriot 
seems to have been of another family. See ' Notes and Queries,' Seventh S., V., 201. 

(15) The following is furnished me as a translation of the inscription on the monument in 
Mayor's Chapel, erected by Edward Bisse to George Upton of Wells : " To the Eternal Memory 
of George Upton, Esquire, one of the best and most cultivated of men, who lived uprightly for 
fifty-five years and quietly went to sleep the 25 th of January in the year of our Lord 1G08." 

(16) I have here to justify the most radical departure I have made from the commonly 
received pedigree of this family, viz., the making John Upton who married Agnes Pennells 
identical with, instead of the son of, John Upton who married Elizabeth Mohun. At the 
Visitation of Devon in 1620, John Upton of Lucton, a young man twenty-nine years of age, 
presented to Camden his pedigree and three coats of arms. (See page 6, ante.) The first shield 
shewed simply the Upton arms as borne by his kinsman, Upton of Puslinch, at the Visitation of 
1564 ; and may have been presented to establish his claim to bear the cross moline, instead of 
the cross flory, which had been attributed to his ancestor, Upton of Lucton, at the former 
Visitation. The second shield was apparently intended to shew the quarterings his kinsman of 
Puslinch bore, from Carnother to Mohun. The purpose of the third shield, we may judge, was to 
shew the quarterings he himself claimed to bear ; and this shield was made by adding the arms 
of his ancestress Pennells to those shewn on the second. The claim thus made was 
supported by the pedigree, which purported to shew his descent through Elizabeth Mohun and 
Agnes Pennells. Upon the strength of this shewing, all subsequent writers (with one noteworthy 
exception) have acquiesced in the statement that a son of Elizabeth Mohun married Agnes 
Pennells. I contend that this is erroneous, that the authority for it is insufficient, and that the 
third shield should have been formed by substituting the arms of Pennells for those of Mohun. 
The authorities for the pedigree of 1620 are two : John Upton's statement and Camden's allow- 
ance of the pedigree. When we remember the uncritical spirit of that age, and the fact that John 
Upton was simply a country gentleman, a young fox-hunting squire rather than an antiquarian, and 
that, apparently, his principal anxiety was to shew his right to quarter the Pennells arms, his 
statements concerning the Mohuns and matters which occurred a century and a third previously 
will have but little weight. Nor can error successfully shield herself behind the great name of 
the learned, albeit somewhat credulous, Camden. It is well known that the Heralds and Kings 
of Arms, while sufficiently prompt in branding as " ignobiles " new men venturing to claim to 
rank as gentle, rarely made it their business, while making visitations, to pick to pieces the 
pedigrees or challenge the quarterings of families of undisputed rank and antiquity. Indeed, 
while making a visitation, they had neither time nor facilities for testing pedigrees, even if they 
possessed the inclination. So far as the old-established families were concerned they came into 
the shire not as judges but as recorders. They decided such disputed points as came before 
them, granted a few coats of arms to new men, rejected the claims of the altogether unworthy, 
recorded the pedigrees furnished them by the old families, and went their way, happy if the 
chief families of the shire had not, as was sometimes the case, entirely ignored their summons. 
The critical investigation of our age has shewn that few of the pedigrees they preserved are 
entirely correct, while many of them are replete with patent absurdities. Hence, while their labours 
were of great value, their records are only prima facie evidence, and come down to us with but 
slight authority when inconsistent with known facts or with the laws of probability. The 
position given Agnes Pennells in the 'Visitation of 1620' introduces many difficulties. It 
repeats, in another generation, the two adult brothers bearing the same christian name (see note 8, 
supra) ; it renders it difficult to account for the relative ages of descendants of the two ladies, 
Elizabeth Mohun and Agnes Pennells, in the following generations ; and it makes the husband 
of Agnes Pennells a second son, while the ' Visitation of 1564 ' makes him a " second brother," 
meaning, I suppose, a third son. Nor is this all. We have the will of John Upton who married 


Agnes Pennells, which shews that in 1489 he had a wife Agnes and five children, two of them 
old enough to be named executors. (See Abstract 1, page 25, ante.) Yet in that year, if he 
were a son of Elizabeth Mohun, he could hardly have been twenty-seven years of age, for her 
marriage took place in or about the year 1460, and he was certainly not her first child. These 
considerations convinced me, even before I was aware that Tuckett had arrived at the same con- 
clusion, that Elizabeth Mohun was not mother but was first wife of the John Upton who 
married Agnes Pennells. Tuckett's authority, as we have seen (note 16, page 21, ante), was no 
less than a pedigree attached to a fine passed, by Elizabeth Mohun's grandson, less than seventy 
years after the death of Agnes Pennells's husband. Against such evidence, I submit, the 
authority of the pedigree of 1620 cannot stand. 

(17) As one of the grantors of Puslinch to John Upton in 1492 was a supervisor of his 
father's will, it is not improbable that this date indicates the year in which the heir attained his 

(18) Joanna or rather Jane Upton is made daughter of her father's second wife by the 
Visitation of 1564. The custody and marriage of the three daughters was awarded his widow 
in their father's will. It may be that they were all children of the second wife. 

(19) This Nicholas Upton of Puslinch "cut a considerable figure" as farmer of the Devon- 
shire lands, particularly Yealampton and Stokenham, of the Countess of Sarum, Margaret 
Plantagenet, daughter of George, Duke of Clarence, and Isabel Neville. Absurdly enough, he 
has been confounded with Dr. Nicholas Upton the heraldist who flourished a century earlier. 
J. B. Yonge, in ' Notes and Queries,' says he died in 1568, but the Visitation of 1564 makes him 
dead in the latter year. 

(20) Arthur J. Jewers, F.S.A., editor of the admirable ' Heraldic Church Notes from Corn- 
wall,' in a letter to the writer, calls Dorothy Upton's husband " Walter " Ingram. 

(21) As to this Jane Upton, see note 18, supra. 

(22) When the fates in 1709 extinguished the male line of the Uptons of Puslinch, they 
were indeed kind in ordaining that the female line should be perpetuated through so worthy a 
family as the Yonges. James Yonge of Landsend, who married Mary Upton and acquired 
Puslinch, was himself of a good Devonshire family originally from Berkshire. He purchased 
from the Duke of Leeds the patronage of the living of Newton Ferrers, of which five of his 
descendants, for a period of about one hundred and fifty years, were at once patrons and rectors. 
He and Mary Upton had, as we have seen, at least eight children, of whom the eldest son died 
unmarried. The second son, 

Eev. John Yonge of Puslinch, Rector of Newton Ferrers, Fellow of All Souls, succeeded his 
father in 1745, and the following year married Elizabeth, daughter of George Duke, Esq., of 
Otterton, by Dorothy his wife, daughter of Marshall Eyre. By her he had four sons and two 
daughters, of whom we mention — 

I. John Yonge, who succeeded his father. See below. 
• II. James Yonge, heir to his brother. See below. 

III. Duke Yonge, Vicar of Cornwood, born 1750 or 1751, married, 1777, Catherina, daughter 
of Sir Thomas Crawley-Boevey, Bart., by whom he had, besides others, 

1. Rev. Charles Yonge, father of Charles Duke Yonge, a distinguished Professor of 

English Literature in Queen's College, Belfast. 

2. William Crawley Yonge, father, by Frances Mary daughter of Rev. Thomas 

Bargus, of Charlotte Mary Yonge the well-known author of ' The History of 
Christian Names,' ' Heir of Radcliffe,' and numerous other works. 

3. Anne Duke Yonge, married Thomas Julian Pode. 

IV. Dorothy Eyre Yonge, married Samuel Archer, Esq., of Trelaske. See note 7, supra. 
Rev. John Yonge of Puslinch, Rector of Newton Ferrers, eldest surviving son of Rev. John 

and Elizabeth (Duke) Yonge, succeeded his father in 1767, but died s.p. in 1772, and was suc- 
ceeded by his brother, 

Rev. James Yonge of Puslinch, Rector of Newton Ferrers, born in 1748, who had by his 
second wife, Anne, daughter of Edmund Granger, Esq., six children, of whom, 

I. John Yonge succeeded his father. See below. 

II. Elizabeth, married in 1814 the distinguished soldier John Colborne, afterwards Lord 
Seaton, some time Governor-General of Canada, Commander of the Forces in Ireland, 
Field Marshal, etc. She was mother of the present Lord Seaton. 


Rev. John Tonge of Puslinch, Rector of Newton Ferrers, the eldest son, born 1788, succeeded 
his father in 1797 or 1799. He married Alethea Henrietta, daughter of Rev. Thomas Bargus, by 
whom he had five sons (three of whom died young) and five daughters. The two surviving 
sons were, 

I. John Bargus Yonge, M.A. Oxon, J.P. and D.L., Captain 7th Devon Mounted Rifles, born 

22 Nov. 1821. He married 28 June 1848 Cordelia, daughter of William Hay, Esq., 
and died at Biarritz, s.p., v.p., 12 Nov. 1863. It is to this gentleman's thorough and 
faithful investigation that we are indebted, as elsewhere acknowledged, for much of 
our information concerning the Uptons of Devonshire. 

II. Rev. Duke Youge of Puslinch, Rector of Newton Ferrers, born 21 June 1823, succeeded 
his father in 1877. He married 26 Aug. 1862 Charlotte Cordelia, daughter of Thomas 
Julian Pode, Esq., of Plympton Erie (of the distinguished family of Pode of Slade, 
Devon), by his wife Anne Duke Yonge, daughter of Duke Yonge, Vicar of Cornwood, 
mentioned above. He died in 1881, leaving by this accomplished lady (to whose 
courtesy I have elsewhere in these pages acknowledged my obligation) six sons and 
four daughters, viz. : 

1. Katherine Yonge, born 1863. 

2. John Yonge, now of Puslinch, born 1864. 

3. Charles Burell Yonge, born 1866. 

4. Geoffrey Yonge, born 1867. 

5. Duke Mohun Yonge, born 1869. 

6. Dorothea Yonge, born 1870. 

7. James Upton Yonge, born 1872. 

8. Cordelia Elizabeth Yonge, born 1874. 

9. Alethea Yonge, born 1876. 

10. Ambrose Pode Yonge, born 1878. 

(23) In the Brixham parish registers (see page 59, ante) it will be seen four persons named 
John Upton were buried there, in 1582, 1590-1, 1600, and 1603 respectively, of whom the first and 
third are dignified as " Mr." While it is not easy to assign these burials to the right individuals 
among the several Johns of that time and place, I think the first may safely be taken as that 
of the husband of Jane Raleigh, for his son was called John Upton " the younger " as late 
as 1573. The title " Mr.'' seems to entitle the next lord of Lupton to the third date (1600), 
leaving to his nephew and the latter's son the second and fourth burials (in 1590-1 and 1603). 

(24) This Nicholas Upton, as well as his nephew John (whose name has been, for that 
purpose, distorted to Nicholas), has been frequently confounded with the Knight of Malta, who 
belonged to the Lincolnshire family. See note ||, page 54, ante. 

(25) See notes 23 and 24, supra. 

(26) Upon a brass in Brixham church, under a representation of a crown, is the following 
inscription : 

" A Crown of Righteousness. 
To the pretious memory of John Upton, Esquire, a 
Saint Excellent on Earth and now G-lorious in Heaven ; 
Who was borne on Earth Aprile 7, 1590, and was 
Translated to Heaven Sept. 11, 1641." 
Then follow twenty-two eulogistic verses, in the phraseology of the Puritans, of which six 
must suffice us here : 

" Swift to doe Good, his Time hee did improve, 
Industrious, Active and made all of Love, 
Others doe Good by Fits and in a Mood 
But this man's Constant Trade was Doing Good. 
O thou who mournest that hee is not with thee 
Bee like him, and in Blisse thou shalt him see." 
The epitaph and verses are printed, with immaterial variations, in a contemporaneous broad- 
side with the title, " An Epitaph upon a late worthy Member of the House of Commons.'' 

(27) All previous accounts of Lord Templetown's family have agreed in sending his ancestor 
Henry Upton to Ireland as an officer in the army of the Earl of Essex, notwithstanding the fact 


that that unfortunate nobleman died when Henry Upton was a child of tender years. The fact 
is he went to Ireland about twenty-five years later than they state. No trace of him is found 
there before the year 1625, in which year he was a pallbearer at the funeral of his kinsman Lord 
Belfast, being designated by no military title but simply as " Mister." His migration was pro- 
bably due to his relationship to the Fortescues and Chichesters. Sir Faithful Fortescue, who 
went to Ireland early in the reign of James I., was distantly related to Henry Upton's maternal 
grandfather Hugh Fortescue as well as to Sir Arthur Chichester (afterwards Lord Belfast), Lord 
Deputy of Ireland, whose sister Elizabeth became the wife of Hugh Fortescue. Many young 
Devonshire gentlemen, including Henry Upton, followed these leaders to Ireland to seek their 
fortunes, just as others, at about the same time, went to New England and Virginia. The estate 
upon which Castle Upton, formerly Castle Norton, stands was granted, Oct. 20, 1617, by James I. 
to Sir Arthur Chichester, who transferred it to Humphrey Norton, by whom it was granted, 
Nov. 28, 1625, to Henry Upton. 

(28) The dates of the execution and proof of the will of Arthur Upton are given incorrectly 
at page 41, ante. They should be as stated in the pedigree. 

(29) Records in the possession of Lord Templetown seem to shew that this Arthur Upton, 
and not his younger brother of the same name, lived to be an army officer. 

(30) This Olivia Upton, often erroneously called Arabella, was ancestress of Bobert Colvill 
Jones Lyons, Esq., to whom we are indebted for much of our knowledge of the county Antrim 

(31) Elizabeth Upton, Viscountess of Langford, by her husband Bight Hon. Hercules Lang- 
ford Rowley, had five children, viz. : 

I. Hercules, who succeeded his mother as Viscount Langford. He died s.p. and the title 
became extinct, but the family estates passed to his niece Frances Bowley, mentioned 

II. Clotworthy Bowley, who was father of Frances Bowley who succeeded to the family 
estates and married her cousin Clotworthy Taylour, mentioned below. 

III. Arthur Bowley, who died unmarried. 

IV. Jane Bowley, who married Sir Thomas Taylour, Kt., afterwards Earl of Bective. 
They had, besides others, two sons, viz. : 

1. Thomas, Marquess of Headfort, ancestor of the present Marquess. 

2. Clotworthy (Taylour), who upon his marriage with his cousin Frances Bowley, 
mentioned above, assumed the name and arms of Bowley, and was created Baron 
Langford. From them descends the present Baron. 

V. Catherine Bowley, who married Edward Michael (Pakenham), Lord Longford. They 
had, besides others, two children, viz. : 

1. Thomas, ancestor of the present Earl of Longford. 

2. Catherine Pakenham, who was wife of Arthur, the first and great Duke of 
Wellington, and ancestress of the present Duke. 

(32) H the records are correct in giving Aug. 25, 1769, as the date of the marriage of Baron 
Templetown and Elizabeth Boughton, probably the ceremony referred to was merely a repetition 
at home of their marriage contract, which seems to have been entered into abroad. 

(33) See extracts from the parish registers of St. James, Westminster, printed at page 
71, ante. 

(34) From the union of Elizabeth Albana Upton and the Marquess of Bristol descends the 
present Marquess, and, says Burke, the Hervey family became founders' kin at All Souls, 

(35) The London Vanity Fair of Aug. 18, 1888, published, in its series of cartoons of public 
men, a caricature of Lord Templetown and a sketch of his life. The latter, though written in a 
flippant vein, contains enough truth to justify me in quoting it. Of course the date first 
mentioned (1578) is about forty years too early (see note 27, supra) : 

" Just three hundred and ten years ago there settled on a bit of land in Ulster — which had 
been granted by an ancient King to a Gallic immigrant eleven centuries before, and which had 
come to be called Temple Patrick when the Saint of the land of Potheen and Potatoes had 
driven out the frogs — a gallant Captain in the Army of the Earl of Essex, whose name was 
Henry Upton. Of the stock of this Henry comes the third and present Viscount Templetown 


and Baron Templetown of Templetown, who is four years older than his title. He was born 
eighty-six years ago, and his early youth is, therefore, a matter of ancient history, As ' handsome 
George Upton,' he was one of the ornaments of London Society until the Crimean War broke 
out, when, being a soldier, he exchanged the idle dalliance in beauty's drawing room for the 
stern alarms of war. At Alma he memorably led the 1st Coldstreams ; and while in command 
of his brigade at Inkerman he received a glorious wound what time his charger met his death. 
After these exploits he obtained his Division, was several times mentioned in despatches, won 
medals, and the decorations of the Bath, the Medjidie, and the Legion of Honour ; and at last, 
covered with distinction, he ended his warlike career, after sixty-five years of soldiering, as 
General in the Army, Colonel of the 2nd Life Guards, and Colonel-Comma.ndant of the 2nd 
Battalion of the 60th Foot. In the paths of peace also this sturdy veteran has not failed of 
distinction ; for, from 1859 until he succeeded to his title in 1863, Sir George Frederick Upton 
was the Parliamentary representative of Antrim, for which county Lord Templetown is now on 
the Commission and in the Lieutenancy. 

" His house in Charles Street, Berkeley Square, is the resort of many of the most charming 
and well-bred people in London. At Castle Upton, by Temple Patrick, he is known as the best 
type of the Irish gentleman, beloved by his tenants and esteemed by his neighbours. He has 
been an earnest man all through his life ; he has diverted himself, he has dined, he has danced 
with the same earnestness with which he has always done his duty and fought his fights. He 
is a good man, and a most trusty pillar of the Disestablished Church of Ireland. Eight and 
thirty years ago he married the eldest daughter of ' fighting Sandy Woodford,' Field Marshal ; 
but he is childless. He is a Kepresentative Peer and a Tory of the good old school. He is a 
member of the Convivial Sackville Street Club in Dublin, and he is a notable figure at the 
Carlton, the Travellers', the United Service, and 'The Rag.' He is a very brave, a very courteous, 
and altogether admirable gentleman, whose superb ' set up ' long years and long service have 
been unable to lower.'' 

(36) As to Elizabeth Bence, see pedigree from ' Visitation of London in 1687,' page 8, ante. 
Burke says she was daughter of Alexander (youngest son of Edmund) Bence of Alderburgh, 
Suffolk, and gives an impossible date for her marriage. 

(37) Entries from the registers of Greenwich, Kent, printed at page 62, ante, suggest that 
this Captain Richard Upton and others of this family may have lived in that parish. 

(38) An inscription to the memory of Anthony Upton, which read as follows, was placed in 
Brixham church : 

" Defuncti Cineres, ex Hispania transmissos, quinque fratres 
Totidemque sorores, luctuosi funeris comites, dolentes 
Composuerunt, eosdemque Gilb. et Tho. Upton, Familise 
Hirciscundse Arbitri, hoc saxo perennes Volunt." 
Compare the erroneous inscription quoted in note f , page 82, ante. This Anthony Upton is an 
interesting example of those sturdy English merchants who have earned the trade of his country 
into every quarter of the globe. In youth he went to Spain, and there established himself as a 
merchant, accumulating a large fortune. He is frequently mentioned in the State Papers. In 
a very curious memorial written by Henry Rumbold, ancestor of Sir Horace Rumbold, one of the 
ablest of modern British diplomatists, who had been Anthony Upton's partner at Cadiz, he 
relates the services rendered by himself and his family to Charles I. and Charles II., stating, 
among other things, that through Upton's connection with Thurloe (whose wife's two sisters, 
it will be remembered, married, respectively, Anthony Upton's brother and nephew), he, Rumbold, 
obtained an insight into Cromwell's designs on Spain, and by helping to defeat them, rendered 
service to the royal cause. Anthony Upton's funeral sermon was preached by Dr. John Howe, 
" the Puritan Platonist," who was at one time household Chaplain to Cromwell. Dr. Howe 
printed this discourse under the title, " The Vanity of This Mortal Life,'' or " The Vanity of Man 
as Mortal," after throwing the merely personal portions of it into the form of a dedication to the 
nephew of the deceased, from which I make brief extracts, viz. : 





" .... I remind you that after this your near relative (whose death gave the occasion of the 
ensuing meditations) had from his youth lived between twenty and thirty years of his age in 
Spain, your joint importunity had at length obtained from him a promise of returning ; whereof, 
when you were in somewhat a near expectation, a sudden disease in so few days landed him 
in another world, that the first notice you had of his death or sickness was by the arrival of that 
vessel (clad in mourning attire) which, according to his own desire in his sickness, brought over 
the deserted body to its native place of Lupton ; that thence (sic) it might find a grave where 
it first received a soul ; and obtain a mansion in the earth where first it became one to a reason- 
able spirit. A little before this time, the desire of an interview among yourselves (which the 
distance of your habitations permitted not to be frequent) had induced divers of you to appoint 
a meeting .... But before that agreed resolution could have its accomplishment, this sad and 
most unexpected event intervening, altered the place, the occasion, and design of your meeting ; 
but effected the thing itself, and brought together no less than twenty, the brothers and sisters 
of the deceased, or their consorts, besides his many nephews and nieces and other relations .... 
My peculiar respects to yourselves, the members and appendants of a family to which (besides 
some relation) I have many obligations and endearments, do prevail with me .... My design 
.... is not to erect a monument to the memory of the deceased .... nor to spread the fame of 
your family ; (though the visible blessing of God upon it .... do challenge observation, both as 
to those branches of it which grow in their own more natural soil, and those .... that I find to 
have been transplanted into another country) .... But .... it occasioned so much, that you had 
that so general meeting with one another, which otherwise probably you would not have had, 
nor are likely again to have (so hath Providence scattered you) in this world ; . . . . Your 
affectionate and respectful kinsman J. Howe." 

I have been unable to ascertain in what way Dr. Howe was a "relation" and "kinsman" to 
these Uptons. He was at this time, however, private chaplain in Ireland to Viscount Massareene 
(formerly Sir John Skeffington, Bart.), whose wife's aunt had married Henry Upton of Castle 

(39) I here supply the ancestry of the Uptons of Glyde Court. Their exact connection with 
the parent stem having escaped previous investigators, Burke's Landed Gentry has been content, 
without expressly alleging it, to lead the inquirer to suppose Rev. Ambrose Upton of Killenaboy 
was son, instead of grandson, of the Canon of Christ Church. 

(40) For the order of Mary Upton's marriages, it will be noticed, I have (page 12, ante) the 
authority of a statement made by her brother and approved by the next Earl of Suffolk. It is 
usually stated that Suffolk was the second and Maynard her third husband. 

(41) I think I am not in error in supposing this was the Ambrose Upton who was Deputy 
Consul in Audalusia and, as such, in Oct. 1689, signed a letter of complaint "from the English 
merchants trading to the Ports of Andalusia in Spaine." (State Papers, Spain.) In 1668 he 
was a legatee under the will of his uncle Anthony Upton, who died in Andalusia, and whose 
partner, Henry Eumbold, became Consul General there. See note 38, supra. 

(42) The children of Anna (or Nancy) Upton by her husband John Dwyer, Esq., were : 

I, John, of whom below. 2, Francis, who married .... Hamilton. 3, Anthony. 4, Rev. George, 
Rector of Ardrahan, co. Galway, who married .... Mills. 5, Henry. 6, Anne, who married, in 
1804, Robert Going of Cragg, co. Tipperary. 7, Jane. 8, Margaret. 9, Fanny. 10, Henrietta. 

II, Eliza, who married Henry Adair of Dublin, barrister ; and 12, Isabella Dwyer. 

The son John Dwyer, Esq., married Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Doyne, Esq., of Wells, 
co. Wexford, and had besides others, two sons, viz. : 

1. Major F. Doyne Dwyer, deceased, a distinguished officer in the Austrian service and 
author of ' The Franco-Prussian War,' ' Seats and Saddles, Bits and Bridles,', and 
other works. His heirs now hold the lands in co. Clare acquired by his great-grand- 
father Francis Upton. 

2. Rev. Philip Dwyer, sometime Vicar of Drumcliffe and Canon of Dysert, Rector of 
Ennis, and later of a church in Victoria, B.C., and the industrious author of ' The 
Diocese of Killaloe ' which I have had occasion to quote in these pages. By his wife, 
a daughter of Captain John Crowe of the 93rd Highlanders, he had eight children. 
He settled six of these, three sons and three daughters, in British Columbia, and then, 
in 1886, returned to the mother country. 


(43) I suppose Mary Ann Catherine (Upton) Moutray's daughter, Sophia Moutray, who 
married Eobert Hornidge, Esq., of Hardross, was mother of that Moutray Hornidge, Esq., who 
succeeded his cousin Ambrose Upton Gledstanes in 1871, and took the name Gledstanes in lieu of 

(44) The inscription in Brixham church to John Upton and family is said to read as follows : 
" In Memory of John Upton of Lupton who piously and uprighteously served God and His 

Country In his Private and public station while a Justice of Peace and Burgesse for Dartmouth 
in three Parliaments all at his proper costs and charge. This monument was erected by his dis- 
consolate Relict Ursula daughter of Sir John Lytcott. Knight of Moully [Moulsey], in the County 
of Surrey, with whom he lived 22 years in true conjugal affection, and by whom he had three sons 
and one daughter. — The first died young — the others educated in the fear of the Lord, and kept 
from the vices of youth, gave great hopes of being eminently serviceable were early transplanted, 
dying with true Christian faith before their father, who departed this life at Salisbury Sept. 7 
and was here interred iEtas 49 Anno Dimini 1687. 

" Here also lies the above said Ursula, who had been post-married [sic] to George Clarke of 
London, Merch*, by whom she had 8 children. Ob. 16 Dec r 1709, set. 79. 

" Arthur, their eldest son, born at Dublin In Ireland Feb r5 " 14, and buried there in March 1666. 
Arthur, the second son, born at Lupton Jan y 6, 1667, died at Kingsbridge Nov. 28, was buried here 
1680. John, their third son, was born at Lupton May 17, 1668, died and was interred in Wadham 
Coll., Oxon, Dec r 1686. 

" Ursula, their only daughter, at Lupton Jan^ 13, 1671, died in London Aug. 21, and was 
interred here in the same grave with her father 1687." 

As will be noticed, this inscription is erroneous in stating that John Upton's widow "post' 
married " George Clarke. Clarke was her first husband. See her marriage licence, page 75, ante. 

Most appropriately and prophetically did Dr. Howe dedicate ' The Vanity of this Mortal 
Life ' to this John Upton (see note 38, svpra), for the vanity of all earthly things was illustrated 
in his life far more pathetically than in that of his uncle Anthony. When that dedicatory 
epistle was written, John Upton, a man of pure life and exceptional abilities, honoured by his 
neighbours and beloved by his kindred, was the head of this ancient and illustrious family, and 
had two bright sons to perpetuate his name, and a sweet infant daughter promising to comfort 
his declining years. In 1680 he lost his elder son. Six years later his only surviving boy, in the 
midst of his University career, sickened and died, only to be followed, a few months later, by 
the daughter. In less time than two months after this last calamity, the childless father's 
broken heart ceased to beat, and he sought his offspring in a life in which it is not said, " all is 

(45) One edition of the ' Landed Gentry' makes Elizabeth Brathwaite second wife of John 
Upton and mother of all his children ; and then caps the climax of absurdities possible to even 
that remarkable work, by permitting her (alleged) descendants to quarter the Otway arms. 

(46) In regard to Swettenham and Willis, I follow Mrs. Upton-Cottrell-Dormer. Burke says 
Mr. Swettenham assumed the additional name Willis. 

(47) I gladly avail myself of this opportunity to apologise for my error in note *, page 38, 
ante, where I said Sir John Henry Greville Smyth died in 1873. I am very happy to say that 
gentleman is still living. May he enjoy a long life, and have numerous children to perpetuate 
the great house he so honourably represents. And may his posterity obtain the royal licence to 
resume the Upton name, their noblest heritage. 

(48) The ' Landed Gentry ' correctly states that Greville Cottrell- Dormer died when about 
one year of age ; and then, with its usual accuracy, at another place in the same edition enlists 
him in the 4th Batt. Oxon. Light Infantry. " Infantry " is quite appropriate.

&ott& on tje preatrmg ^rtifflree. 

(1) I consider no apology due the reader for printing this defective and perhaps, in some 
points, erroneous pedigree ; for it was compiled with great pains, chiefly from correspondence 
with persons now deceased, and may furnish the future historian of this most interesting family 
his only clue to the origin of many Upton families scattered throughout Ireland, America, and 
the Isles of the sea. 

The difficulties of the historian of this family will be enhanced by the fact that not a few 
Upton families exist sprung from irregular unions between gentlemen of this house and the warm- 
hearted and beautiful daughters of the Irish peasantry. Between the years 1746 and 1870, 
marriages celebrated in Ireland by Catholic priests between Catholics and Protestants were 
legally void. While this detestable law worked great hardship in numerous instances, there can 
be no doubt that advantage was sometimes taken of its provisions by the Protestant gentry, both 
by younger sons of slender means and by men uncongenially married, to secure to themselves, 
by such unions with the Catholic peasantry, the joys of domestic life without the expense or 
responsibility which marriage with their social equals would have entailed. These unions were 
often exceedingly happy ones, and were rarely broken except by death. The loving women who 
thus entrusted their happiness to affection rather than to law almost invariably proved the most 
faithful of wives and the best of mothers. The offspring bore their father's name, and were 
usually reared in the religious faith of the mother. 

The origin of the common ancestor of the Uptons of Ashgrove, Glenstar, Ballineaua, and 
Ballinabearna is uncertain. A very general tradition would connect him with Lord Templetown's 
family, but that he was not descended from Capt. Henry Upton, the emigrant to co. Antrim, is 
sufficiently certain. Quite certain it is that these Uptons were of English blood, Protestants, of 
gentle quality, and, for more than a century, ofgood position and considerable influence, partaking of 
all the virtues, if of some of the vices, of the aristocracy of their day. So, if we must say, with one 
of their descendants, " horses and hounds and general extravagance scattered their possessions and 
brought them to nought," we should also record that a Catholic gentleman of county Limerick 
has said of them, " Protestants and landlords, they made a name here for straightforward dealing 
and honourable conduct that, among a Catholic people, is almost a proverb." 

The greatness of the family in Ireland has passed away, perhaps for ever ; but in distant lands 
scions of the ancient stock have taken root, and already shew signs of a future greatness which 
promises to rival the ancient splendour of the parent tree. 

Before passing from the subject, I should state that the earliest memorial of this family of 
which I have any knowledge is one sufficiently singular and mysterious to excite the interest of 
the least curious. In the burial-ground at Newcastle West, co. Limerick, lies an ancient 
horizontal tombstone from which the inscription has been carefully cnt off ! Enough of the base 
of the letters remains, however, to enable one to read, " To the Memory of ... . Upton who Died 
Oct. 28, 1657," and a reference to " St. Luke viii. 56." It also appears that the Christian name 
was one of five letters, possibly " Henry," but probably not, as the third letter appears to have 
been " A," the fourth " D," and the fifth " Y " or " N." Moreover the scripture seems to relate 
to a woman,* and is of such singular import that, if found in a less mysterious connection, it 
would lead us to suspect an error on the part of the sculptor. 

(2) My reason for supposing the name of the father of John Upton of Newcastle was William 

* " And her parents were astonished : but He charged them that they should tell no man 
what was done." 


is a statement made by the late Samuel Upton, Esq., of Doon Lodge (b. 1800, d. 1886). He 
informed me that upon the family vault in Newcastle West, where most of the Uptons are 
interred, there still existed in his boyhood an inscription, long since obliterated by time, to the 
effect that the vault was erected in 1711* by John Upton in memory of his father William Upton, 
and his wives, " Alice Flemmin" and " Elizabeth Spearin." 

Samuel Upton stated further that this William Upton, " a very old man," came to Newcastle 

with his son John. May he have been the William Upton, of Templepatrick, mentioned on page 

89 as High Sheriff of co. Antrim in 1672 ? 

(3) A very distinct and positive tradition names Mary Flemming and Elizabeth or Catherine 
Conyers as the wives of this John Upton of Newcastle. But see note 2, supra. 

(4) All the descendants of Mary Dunworthy are Catholics. 

(5) In 1884 Ballinabearna, the last of the Upton lands remaining in the family, was said to 
be worth about £300 per annum, and there was a report that the estate was to be sold to pay an 
incumbrance of £1800. 

* In different accounts the date is given variously as " 1611," "1711," and "1811." I doubt 
not 1711 is the true date, and that the stone was erected by John Upton who made will No. 105, 
page 45, ante.

Upton of Boston and Northolme, Lincolnshire.* 

I mention this family, one of the most interesting of the lesser nobility of 
England, only to express my regret that the paucity of my material for its history 
compels me to leave its annals for the pen of some future investigator. 

Rev. A. R. Maddisonf classifies it among the families which were in Lincolnshire 
before the thirteenth century, but — for the reason that he found these Uptons first at 
Boston — not among those who took their names from places in that county ; and 
says he knows not whence they came. But that they took their name from their 
home or estate long before they settled in Boston is sufficiently apparent ;$ an ^ I 
suppose that home was one of the Uptons in Lincolnshire and not in some other 
county. Maddison adds :§ " The Upton family gradually decayed, and seems to 
have passed away before the Commonwealth. Northolme Church has disappeared, 
and the old hall of the Uptons, after having been turned into a farm-house, was 
burnt to the ground some years ago." The family estates appear to have been en- 
cumbered as early as the beginning of the seventeenth century, and no doubt the 
Great Rebellion completed the financial ruin of this house, as it did of so many other 
Lincolnshire families. 

While there is no probability that the family is extinct, I know no existing family 
which is certainly descended from it. Our present limited knowledge, however, 
tends to indicate that Upton of Mitcham and the Uptons of New England are 
probably of this stock. Reasons also exist for thinking that Uptons who flourished 
at St. Margaret's-at-Cliffe and other parts of Kent as early as the sixteenth century 
may have been related to this family. 

Upton of The Canons, Mitcham, Surrey. 

Edwin Upton, Esq., the earliest known progenitor of this family, is supposed to 
have been born about 1710. A seal, said to have belonged to him and given by his 
grandson Thomas Upton to the latter's eldest son, bears the arms Argent, on a cross 
moline sable a bezant, which is the coat claimed by Ambrose Upton of Northolme, 
Lincoln, at the Visitation of 1634. (See page 4, ante.) By his wife, who was 
probably an Andrews, he had a son 

James Upton of Gloucestershire, Esq. He married Elizabeth, said to have been 
born as early as 1744, daughter of William Bendall of Durseley, Glouc. By her he 
had, besides two daughters, one named Sophia, one of whom married a lawyer, the 
other a clergyman, in his old age a son whom he disinherited in favour of his 
daughters, viz. :

J Ante, pages 18 and 101. § 'Lincolnshire Wills,' 13. 


Thomas Upton, Esq., born Aug. 13, 1794. His sisters, who were married 
before his birth, seem to have regarded his advent with little favour, and made life 
so unpleasant for him that he ran away from home in boyhood and settled in 
London. There he eloped with and married Elizabeth, daughter of Roger Dawson, 
a wealthy merchant, and Elizabeth his wife. Thomas Upton died in 1862, leaving 
three children as follows : 

I. Roger Dawson Upton, Captain 9th Lancers and Major. He was a man of 
ability and unusually well informed upon subjects connected with his profession, as 
is shewn by his writings, a list of which is given on page 98. He settled in the 
north of England, and, dying in 1881, left, by his wife Sophia Turner, ten 
children, viz. : 

I. Hope ; 2, Hugh ; 3, Arthur ; 4, Edward ; 5, Charles ; 6, Maude ; 7, Eleanor ; 
8, Evelyn ; 9, Winifred ; 10, Edith. 

II. Edward James Upton, of whom below. 

III. Suzannah Upton, married Francis Parker, and has a son Francis. 
Edward James Upton, the second son, Captain in the 26 th Regiment, was born 

in 1830 and died 1868. He was seated at The Canons, Mitcham, Surrey, where 
his widow and sons now reside. His character is illustrated by the motto he 
adopted, Semper verus. By his wife Jane, daughter of John "Wheeley Barington 
and Eliza Leonard his wife, he had four sons : 

I. George Rupert Thomas Upton, now of The Canons, born 1862. 

II. Roger Lionel John Upton, born 1864. 

III. Ralph Gerald Upton, born 1866. 

IV. Edward James Upton, born 1868. 

Upton of Gore Hill, Petworth, Sussex. 

William Upton and John Upton, brothers, lived at Petworth in the last 
century and left numerous descendants. This William Upton died in 1797, leaving 
a son — 

Henry Upton of Petworth. He died in 1840, leaving a son — 

Henry Upton, Esq., now of Gorehill. 

Upton of Newark, Nottinghamshire. 

John or Richard Upton seems to have been the name of a gentleman who 
probably came out of Bedfordshire, a relative of the Uptons, solicitors of London. 
He died about 1825, aged about fifty-eight, leaving a son — 

Richard Upton of the H.E.I. Co.'s Home Service and afterwards of H.M. 
India Office, born Aug. 28, 1799. He married (1st) a Miss Harlow ; (2nd) Feb. 16, 
1836, Isabella Murray, who died Sept. 6, 1875, aged seventy-three. He died in 
1859, having had issue — 
By his first wife, 

I. John George Upton, married Emily Moss, and had a large family. 

II. Maria Louisa Upton, married Richard Ingman. 

III. Sarah Ann Upton, unm. 1878. 


By second wife, 

IV. Isabella Jane Upton, born Dec. 1836, married John Taylor, Esq., of Par- 
tick, near Glasgow. 

V. Eichard Upton, of whom below. 

VI. William James Upton, born 1840, died 18G3, unm. 

VII. Julia Upton, born Feb. 1842, living at the Bridge of Allan, Stirlingshire, 
1878, unm. 

VIII. George Murray Upton, born Feb. 1844, married Miss Turner. 
Eichaed Upton, the second son but eldest by the second wife, was born Aug. 

14, 1838. He was for some time senior clerk in the political and secret department 
of H.M. India Office. He afterwards settled at Newark, Notts, and was Captain of 
the Royal Sherwood Foresters. He married Harriette Frances, eldest daughter of 
Richard Clayton Strelley of Bakerthorpe, Derbyshire, Esq., and in 1878 had — 

I. Arthur Richard Strelley Upton. 

II. William Murray Upton. 

III. Harriette Maud Strelley Upton. 

IV. Isabella Frances Strelley Upton. 

V. Charles Lionel Strelley Upton. 

VI. Gertrude Strelley Upton. 

Upton of Morden Hall, Surrey. 

George Upton of Morden Hall, Surrey, an intimate friend of Lord Palrnerston, 
was a shipowner and held lands abroad. By his wife, who died in 1861, aged about 
eighty-three, he had six sons, viz. : 

I. Edward Upton, an artist in oils, who died about 1882. 

II. William Upton, who went abroad and is supposed to have been drowned. 

III. Henry Upton, who was for some years in the employ of Baron Rothschild, 
and died in 1855. 

IV. Walter Upton, deceased. 

V. Frederick Upton, for thirty years in the National Bank in Old Broad Street, 
City. He died in Dec. 1874. 

VI. Charles Upton. He died in 1861, leaving a relict, who still lives, now a 
second time widowed, and four children as follows : 

I. George William Upton, born 1847 ; died Jan. 7, 1874. 

II. Charles Frederick Upton, married, and living 1887. 

III. Arthur Henry Upton, born March 3, 1851 ; was married, and living in 
Hornsey, London, 1887. 

IV. Isabel Upton, married, and living in Paris, France. 

Upton op Annagurra, co. Limerick. 

Several descendants of this family have migrated to America, and for the sake 
of convenience we shall treat of it in the portion of this volume devoted to the 
American Uptons. 



American Uptons 

We know the names of but three* Uptons (besides the children of the third) 
who emigrated to America prior to the middle of the eighteenth century. These 
■were John Upton of Massachusetts, 1639 ; John Upton of Virginia, 1622 ; and 
Arthur Upton of Barbadoes, 1711. Perhaps to this list should be added Margaret 
Upton and Thomas Upton, whose names appear in the Virginia land records in 
1653 and 1746 respectively ; but these were probably of the family of the emigrant 
of 1622. Perhaps there was another early emigrant, ancestor of some of the North 
Carolina Uptons, but if so, his name has not come down to us. In more recent times, 
however, a comparatively large number of Uptons have come from England and 
Ireland, some of whom have founded large and important families. 

The remaining portion of this volume will be devoted to a sketch of the various 
families sprung from these early and later emigrants. 


Descendants of John Upton, who was in New England in 1639, and died in 
Reading, Mass., July 11, 1699. 

This family embraces probably seven-eighths of the Uptons now living in 
America, and our account of it, which will fill most of the following pages, will be 
arranged under three heads, viz. : 

1. An out-line Pedigree, shewing the elder line of the principal branches of the 

2. A Genealogy, in part condensed, intended as a supplement to Vinton's ' The 
Upton Memorial.' 

3. A brief notice of the Upton Family Association. 

* The vigilant reader of pages 114 and 115 of Vol. IV. of the 'Essex Institute Historical 
Collections' may think he finds a fourth Upton in the record there printed thus : " By the towne 
representatives [of Salem. Mass.], 17 th of the 2 d moneth 1637 " .... " mr. ffrancis upton hath 
tenn acres added to his 120 acres mentioned in Calculation." ....'• Its agreed that ffrancisupton 
may have 20 acres of land more to 130 form ly p'portioned to be laid out vpon woollustons River." 
But, unfortunately, the name here printed " Upton " should be " Weston." The record is cor- 
rectly printed in the same ; Collections,' Second Series, I., 47.

(1) A Plan for Distinguishing Individuals in American Genealogies. 

The great usefulness of the system of " consecutive numbers," adopted by most American 
genealogists, is now universally recognised. But genealogies have to be re-written every 
generation ; and already the demand for revisions of our older family histories has resulted in 
new works in which the " consecutive numbers," by which particular individuals were designated 
in the first history of the several families, have been changed ; and the number previously borne 
by one person has been used to distinguish some one else. This practice is not only annoying in 
family correspondence, but is confusing in the system of exchanging data, now, happily, becoming 
more and more prevalent among students in this field of knowledge. Hence, as experience 
already shews, it is a fruitful and constantly growing source of error in genealogical literature — 
a literature which is growing in bulk and importance in a geometrical ratio as the culture and 
intelligence of our people increases. The apparent need of a system under which the number 
(or other distinguishing badge) once given an individual may for ever remain unchanged in all 
future accounts of the family by whomsoever written, induced the writer to adopt in the ensuing 
pages the plan explained in the following rules, which are respectfully submitted to the considera- 
tion of American genealogists. 

Rule 1. — The descendants of an emigrant to America, or of several emigrating brothers and 
sisters, constitute one family. 

Emigrant kindred less nearly related than brothers are treated as founding separate 
Rule 2. — Each family (as defined by Rule 1) is designated by a number to distinguish its 
members from other persons of the same surname. 

Rule 3. — The emigrant or other earliest known American ancestor of any family is distin- 
guished by the letter A (or a) ; or if several brothers emigrated they are distinguished as A (or a), 
B (or b), C (or c), etc., respectively. These letters are called "individual letters." 

Rule 4. — A person is fully described by giving his " individual letters" or letter, preceded by 
the number of his family. 

Rule 5. — The children of any person are distinguished by affixing to their father's letter or 
letters one of the first letters of the alphabet. Thus the three children of a are a a, ab, and a c, 

While the letter a will ordinarily be given to the eldest child, b to the second, etc., this 

is not necessarily the case. Children are not lettered in the order of their birth, but in the 

order of their birth as understood by the first historian of the family employing this system. 

(See Rule 6.) 

Rule 6. — Family numbers or individual letters, once assigned, must never be changed in future 

editions or new histories of the family, except as stated in Rule 7. (This Rule does not apply to 

persons coming under Rule 8.) 

For example, if it be discovered that the brothers aaa and aab had a hitherto unknown 

elder brother, the latter becomes, not a a a (though the first-born) but a a c. (See remark 

under Rule 5.) 

Rule 7. — If it be discovered that a person hitherto described as the first of his family in 

America (and consequently marked "a") was, in fact, son of another American family, he 

exchanges his family number and individual letter for those he should have borne in the elder 

family ; and all his descendants make a corresponding change. 


Thus, if it appear that " John 4 a" (first of the fourth family) was a son of " Henry 
2 ac" (of the second family), five others of whose children were known before, John takes 
the sixth letter,/, and becomes 2 acf; and, throughout the fourth family, "4a," wherever 
it occurs, is changed to the equivalent, "2a cf"; for example, 4 acb becomes 2 a cfc b. 

If the person discovered to be father of " John 4 a," instead of being of the second family, 
was a person before unknown, unconnected with an}' previously known family, he (or his 
ancestor) is treated as the founder of another family, to which a new number is assigned. 
In either of the cases supposed, the number " 4 " for ever ceases to be used to designate 
any family of this surname. 
Rule 8. — Where a person is known to belong to a certain family, but some of his ancestors are 
unknown, he is designated by the letter p, q, r, or s, preceded by the letters of his known ances- 
tors, and one asterisk (*) for each unknown ancestor (if their number is known), or by the letters 
and a dash ( — ) (if their number is not known). 

Thus, acb* *p represents a great-grandson, aDd acb — p a descendant of acb. 
Rule 9. — The father of an emigrant is always distinguished as Z (or z) ; his father as Y(or y) ; 
the father of " Y" as X (or x), etc. 

Foreign descendants of Z, Y, X, W, etc., not in the emigrant's direct line are distin- 
guished under Rule 5. Ordinarily, the emigrating sons of Z (and not their elder brothers) 
bear the first letters of the alphabet. 
Rule 10. — When, in giving a sketch of any person, it becomes necessary to give a list of his 
children, they may be designated either by their "individual letters" in full, or by only the 
final letters which are to be affixed to the " individual letters " of the parent. 

Thus we may say either " John {a c a) had two sons, acaa James and a cab Samuel," 
or " John {a c a) had two sons, a James and b Samuel." * 
Rule 11. — Where a letter occurs several times in immediate succession, it may be written once 
followed by a figure expressing the number of times it occurs. 

Thus, "aaaab" may be written "a 4b" or " a 4 b." 
The foregoing Rules, seemingly complicated when read, are simple enough in use, as will be 
seen by the following diagram, which shews the " individual letters " of the ancestors, descendants, 
and collateral kindred of the emigrant brothers " A " and " B," and also illustrates Rule 8 : — 

X A 




Z C A A 

X A A A Z C A B 

(or (Eldest son.) (Emigrant.) (Emigrant.) 

X A 3 ) 



B A 

Z D 





(Name unknown.) 








* The latter plan is adopted in the genealogy of the First Family of American Uptons in the 
following pages ; and the former plan is used in my account of the other American Uptons in the 
latter part of this volume. 


The practical utility or inutility of the S3 T stem here submitted is perhaps sufficiently tested by 
its use in the following pages. I have already adverted to the desirability of distinguishing an 
individual by a designation which never need be changed. Another advantage which this system 
seems to possess over the method of " consecutive numbers " is the fact that it shews at a glance 
to what generation any individual belongs, exactly how he is related to any other member of the 
family whose "individual letters" are given, and of which branch of the family he is a member 
(thus possessing some of the advantages of marks of cadency in heraldry) — all with the utmost 
brevity. The matter of brevity I may illustrate as follows: Suppose I wish to mention Daniel 
Upton of Batavia and Daniel TJpton of Muskegon so as to shew how they are related, of what 
generation they are, by what numbers (or letters) they are distinguished in the family history, 
and to which branch of what Upton family they belong. By the new plan, I say simply " Daniel 
Upton (1 afaacc), and Daniel Upton (1 affg ef)" and thereby reveal their distinguishing 
letters, that they are both of the " first " or New England family, that they are third-cousins 
being each of the sixth generation and descended from a common ancestor of the second genera- 
tion, and that that ancestor was the sixth child of the emigrant to New England. All this could 
be expressed under the old system no more briefly than as follows : " 574 Daniel 6 Upton 
(William 5 , William 4 , William 3 , William 2 , John 1 ), and Daniel 6 Upton [not in 'The Upton

(2) Ancestry of Eleanor, wife of John Upton, the emigrant to New England. 

As will hereafter appear, I consider the parentage and maiden name of Dame Eleanor Upton 
alike unknown. But out of deference to a widespread and most persistent tradition that she was 
a Stewart and (of course) " a near relative of the royal house of Stuart," I append a pedigree which 
has been suggested for her, though well aware that in so doing I shall incur the censure of those 
whose approval I most prize. It is, of course, well known that there is considerable dispute over 
several points in tbe first one hundred and ten generations of the house of Stewart ; and this fact, 
if nothing else, will excuse me, I trust, for giving its history during the first few thousand years 
in a somewhat condensed form : — 

Stewart. — Adam (for even the evolutionists do not enable me to trace the royal line back of 
him*) had, by his second wife, a son Seth, whose descendant in the eighth generation was Noah. 
The latter's son Japhet was father of Magog, from whom twenty-four descents bring us to Mile- 
sius of Spain, whose sons conquered Ireland. From King Heremon, one of these, descended, after 
an interval of fifty-three generations, both the 131st King of Ireland and his brother Fergus Mor 
Mac Earca, called the founder of the monarchy in Scotland. From the latter it was but eleven 
generations to Kenneth McAlpine who reigned A.D. 836-859, to two of whose sons the bards trace the 
ancestry of Banquo. Kenneth III., great-grandson of one of these princes, had two sons, Fer- 
quhard, Thane of Lochquaber, and Malcom II., who was grandfather both of good King Duncan 
and of Macbeth. The son Ferquhard was father of that Banquo to whom the witches spoke : 
" And thow Banquho take good tent to this thing 

Thow thi awin self neuir be prince no king 

Bot of thi seid sail lineallie discend 

Sail bruke the croun until the warldis end." 

Banquo, say the bards, begot Flaadus (Shakespeare's Fleance), who begot Walter Fitz Fleald 

father of Alan Fitz Walter, whom we have already met {ante, page 23) as lord of Upton Magna, 

a.d. 1153. The latter's son Walter is said to have returned to Scotland and become Steward to the 

King of Scots. The sixth of these hereditary Stewards, Walter Stewart, married Marjory, a 

* I know not whether it will help the student desirous of tracing the family back of this point 
if I mention the statement of the old heraldists that Adam bore as his coat of arms a shield gules, 
and upon it, as an inescutcheon, that of his wife Eve, a shield argent, she being a sole heir ! After 
the Fall, we are told, Adam bore a garland of fig-leaves proper, and this Abel quartered with argent. 
an apple vert, in right of his mother. 


descendant, by more than one line, of the murdered Duncan, hut more illustrious as the daughter of 
Robert the Bruce, and so sole heir to the throne of Scotland. From their son King Robert II., 
the descent is historical to James V. That monarch had, besides his daughter Mary, Queen of 
Scots, several natural children, some of them men of great ability. One of these, born in 1529 of 
Eupheme, daughter of Lord Elphinston, was Robert Stewart, Abbot of Holyrood House, and in 1581, 
after he professed the reformed religion, Earl of Orkney. The latter, by Janet Kennedy, daughter 
of the Earl of Cassillis, whom he married in 1561, had a son Patrick Stewart, who was Earl of Ork- 
ney in 1600. The latter, who was beheaded in 1614 for inciting his son to treason, is said to have 
had at least two sons, of whom one, Robert, was beheaded in 1613 for treasonably defending his 
father. The other son, James Stewart, the story runs, fled to England or Holland in 1614, and 
finally, in 1621, came to New Plymouth in the "Fortune," the first vessel after the "Mayflower," 
and was father of Eleanor Stewart who married the emigrant John Upton. 

To the latter part of this pedigree, which I admit reads like an extract from the " Landed 
Gentry," I have no objections to urge except these : It is not known that Patrick, Earl of Orkney, 
had a son James, or that James Stewart of the " Fortune " was son of a Patrick, or ever lived in 
Scotland, or had either wife or daughter, or that Eleanor's father was named James or Stewart or 
ever lived in New England. 

I may add that the only Stewart family in which I have noticed the name Eleanor used is 
Stewart of Hornhead, co. Donegal, the founder of which had a daughter of that name, born about 
the year 1700. 

(3) Ancestry of Sarah Goodell, wife of Ebenezer Upton. (Page 147.) 


1. Robert. Goodell, aged 30, with his wife Katherin, aged 28, and children, Mary, aged 4, 
Abraham, aged 2, and Isaac, aged 3, sailed from Ipswich, Suffolk, in April 1634, in the " Elizabeth" 
of Ipswich. They settled in what was then Salem, Mass., where he received a grant of land in 
1637, and became a man of considerable property and influence. Before 1640 he held 480 acres 
between the Ipswich river, the Reading road, and the Newburyport turnpike. His land, 504 
acres, laid out 13 Feb. 1652, was in the north-west part of the present town of Peabody, less than 
a mile east of the Woodhill estate of John LTpton. Robert Goodell was living in 1670, and, tradi- 
tion says, died in 1677. He had children born in America, including, probably, Nehemiah of 
Lynn, Sarah, who m. John Batchelder, and Elizabeth, who m. (first) Henry Bennet and (.secondly; 
John Smith. The following were certainly his : 

2. Mary, b. in England, 1630 ; m. John Pease. 

3. Abraham, b. in England, 1632 ; d. young. 

4. Isaac, b. in England, c. Sept. 1633 ; m. Patience Cooke and had issue. 

5. Zachariah (of whom below). 

6. Jacob, bapt. in Salem, 9 Jan. 1641 ; killed, unmarried. 

7. Hannah, bapt. 6 Aug. 1645 ; m. Lott Killum or Kilham. 

5. Zachariah Goodell was probably the " child " of Robert Goodell which was baptized in 
Salem 31 May 1640. In Dec. 1666-7 he m. Elizabeth, dau. and sole heiress of Edward Beauchamp 
(see Beatjchamp, below), and was living in Danvers in 1695. Their children were: 

8. Zachariah, b. 9 Feb. 1667 ; m. Sarah .... 

9. Samuel, b. 3 Dec. 1669 ; m. Mary Buxtar 25 Dec. 1697, and had, besides others, a dau. Phebe 
Goodell, b. 25 July 1710. She m. Paul Upton (1 afd) whose bro. Benjamin Upton m. a Deborah 
Goodell. This Paul and Phebe Upton, it will be remembered, had three children who m. Goodells, 
viz., (1) David m. Sarah Goodell, (2) Ezra m. Mehitabel Goodell, and (3) Hannah who m. first 
Jacob Goodell and second James Goodell, his brother. The latter were sons of a certain James and 
Phebe Goodell and probably bros. of the wives of the above David and Ezra Upton. The above 
Ezra and Mehitabel Upton had a dau. Mehitabel Upton (1 afd bf) who m. one Ebenezer Goodell. 

10. Joseph, b. 23 Sejt. 1672. (See below.) 

11. Mary, b. 29 Nov. 1674. 

12. Thomas, b. 30 Dec. 1676 ; m. Sarah Horill. From him descend (by the line Thomas 4 , 
Titus 5 , '1 homas 6 , Francis ') those two brilliant brothers whom the writer, at Tale College, had the 


rare privilege of calling classmates and friends, Edwin Burbee Goodell, now one of the ablest 
lawyers at the bar of New York City, and Thomas Dwight Goodell, Assistant Professor of Greek 
in Yale University and one of the finest Hellenists of our day. From another son of this Thomas 
Goodell sprang (by the line Ebenezer 4 , Aaron 5 , Isaac 6 , Walter 7 ) Rev. Isaac Goodell, formerly of 
Grand Lodge, Mich., who has collected considerable data for a history of the family. 

13. Abraham, b. 7 Nov. 1678 ; m. Hannah Rhodes. 

14. John, b. 10 Aug. 1681 ; m. Elizabeth "Witt. 

15. Benjamin, b. 4 July 1687. 

16. David, b. last of March 1689 ; m. Abigail Elliot. 

10. Joseph Goodell, b. in Salem 23 Sept. 1672. He m. Mary . . . son* 6 April 1694, and 
lived in Salem and Lynn. They had : 

17. Edward, b. in Lynn 4 May 1695 ; d. 1 June 1709. 

18. Mary, b. in Salem 5 July 1696. 

19. Ruth, b. 11 Feb. 1698-9. 

20. Keturah, b. 11 Oct. 1701. 

21. Sarah, b. 8 April 1704. (See below.) 

22. Elizabeth, b. 7 Aug. 1706. 

23. Joseph, b. 4 Feb. 1709-10 ; d. at. 2 weeks. 

24. Joseph, b. 20 July 1711 ; m. Elizabeth Goodell, dau. of John (No. 14, above). From them 
descends (by the line Joseph 5 , Zina 6 , Abner-Cheney 7 ) Hon. Abner C. Goodell, Jr., President of 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society. 

21. Sarah Goodell, b. 8 April 1704 ; m., as stated in the pedigree, Ebenezer Upton of the 
North Parish of Reading, 23 Feb. 1727. She died there 6 Aug. 1789. 


1. Edward Beatjchamp was at Salem, Mass., 1637, joined the church 29 Dec. 1639, and was 
admitted freeman 28 Feb. 1643. His children were by his wife Mary, who d. in 1668. He m. 
widow Elizabeth Metcalf 8 Nov. 1670. His children were :

4. Mary, b. 27 June 1647 ; d. March 1668. 

5. Elizabeth, b. 23 July 1648. She, who was ultimately his sole heiress, in Dec. 1666-7 m. 
Zachariah Goodell, as stated above. 

(4) Ancestry of Catherine Hartwell, wife of Josiah Upton. (Page 147.) 


1. William Hartwell settled in Concord, in that part now Lincoln, Mass., about 1636. 
Tradition says he was from co. Kent. He was admitted freeman 18 May 1642, owned nineteen 
parcels of land in 1666, was corporal in 1671, and quartermaster in 1673. His will was dated 
19 Dec. 1689, and proved 24 April 1690, he having d. 12 March 1690, "aged 90," says Savage, 
but " in his 77th year," the statement of his inventory, is probably more correct. Savage misread 
his wife's name and gave him two helpmeets, Jessie and Susan. His only wife, Jazan, d. 5 Aug. 
1695. Their children were : 

2. William, b. 1638. 

3. John, b. 23 Feb. 1640-1 ; m. Priscilla Wright, and had issue. 

4. Mary, b. 1643 ; m. Jonathan Hill, and had issue. 

5. Samuel, b. 26 March 1645. (See below.) 

6. Martha, b. 25 April 1649 ; probably d. v. p. 

* A defective page in the record of marriages conceals all of her surname except the last 



7. Sarah, m. 18 April 1661 Benjamin Parker, and had issue, 

8. Jonathan. 

9. Nathaniel. 

5. Samuel Haetwell was b. in Concord 26 March 1645. He m., first, 26 Oct. 1665, Ruth, 
dau. of George Wheeler. (See Wheelee, below.) He rn., secondly, Rebecca .... ; and m., thirdly, 
6 Feb. 1724, Elizabeth Fletcher. Savage thought his first wife probably a dau. of Obadiah 
Wheeler, and said she d. 19 Dec. 1703; but the Concord record plainly reads 9 Dec. 1713, and in 
the Middlesex land records is a deed dated 3 — 1 — 1680-1 from George Wheeler to his " dau. Ruth 
Heartwell." William Hartwell d. 26 July 1725, his will being dated 12 Feb. 1720-1, and proved 
3 Feb. 1725-6. His children, all by his first wife, were : 

10. Samuel, b. 2 Oct. 1666 ; m. four times, and had issue. 

11. Mary, b. 16 Feb. 1667-8 ; m. John Parting. 

12. Ruth, b. 17 Oct. 1669; d. July 1756.

20. Jane, b. 30 Nov. 1684 ; probably d. y. 

21. Jonathan, b. 1686 ; m. twice, and had issue. 

13. William Hast well, b. in Concord 19 Aug. 1671, settled, in 1729, in what is now the 
southern part of Bedford, Mass. His will, dated 4 Dec. 1742, proved 10 Jan. 1742-3, names his 
wife Ruth, who was b. 1674, and d. 17 Feb. 1752. He d. 11 Dec. 1742, having had : 

22. William, b. 5 Nov. 1703 ; m. Deborah . . . ., and had issue. 

23. Ruth, b. 14 May 1705 ; m. Jonathan Bacon, and had issue. 

24. Dorothy, b. 27 March 1707 ; m. Joseph Arnold. 

25. Daniel, b. 20 March 1708-9 ; m. Sarah Wilson, who d. at their son's home in Charlemont, 
Mass., in 1795. 

26. Timothy, b. 15 Sept. 1712 ; m. Mary Davis, and had issue. 

27. Stephen, b. 1717 ; m. twice, and had issue. 

28. Mary, m. Walter Powers. 

29. Joseph, b. 17 Jan. 1722-3. (See next paragraph.) 

29. Joseph Haetwell was b. 17 Jan. 1722-3, probably in what is now Bedford, Mass. He 
settled in Westmoreland, N.H., and lived also in Putney and Lyndon, Yt. He had a wife Sarah. 
The number of his children and the order of their births are uncertain ; we hear of : 

30. Catherine (of whom below). 

31. "Leafy" (? Relief). 

32. Betsey, b. 7 June, 1754 ; m. Stephen Dutton, and had issue. 

33. Oliver, b. e. 1756 ; m. Hannah Kelly of Dummerston, Vt., b. 1763. Their eldest child 
b. 1780. 

34. William, b. c 1758; published to m. widow Susanna Cole of Putney, Vt., 12 Aug. 1778; 
m., secondly, Lucy Dawes of Westmoreland, N.H., 1792. 

35. Timothy, b. 23 July 1763 ; m. 6 July 1786 Lydia Cole of Westmoreland, and had issue. 

30. Catheeine Haetwell, probably born about 1752, became the second wife of Josiah 
Upton, as stated in the pedigree, and d. in Victor, N.T., after 1799. She had a brother living 
in Charlemont, Mass. 



1. George Wheeler was an early settler in Concord, Mass., where he was admitted freeman 
2 June 1641. He was living in March 1680-1. Of his children we know the names of four, the 
last of whom, at least, was by a wife Catherine. The}' were : 

2. Sarah, b. 30 March 1640. 

3. Ruth, b. 23 Feb. 1641-2. (See below.) 

4. John, b. 19 March 1643. 

5. Mary, b. 6 Sept. 1645 ; m. Ebenezer Fox. 

3. Ruth Wheeler, b. in Concord 23 Feb. 1641-2; m. Samuel Hartwell, as stated above, 
26 Oct. 1665, and d. 9 Dec. 1713. 

(5) Ancestry of Olive Boughton, wife of James Upton. (Page 148.) 

Ronton and Boughton. 

Mr. James Boughton of Brooklyn, N.Y., has earned the lasting gratitude of all persons in- 
terested in this name by compiling a valuable history, now in press, of the American Boutons and 
Boughtons. But inasmuch as Mr. Boughton, to whose courtesy I am deeply indebted, has arrived 
(chiefly, as I believe, by respecting too much the opinions of previous investigators) at conclusions 
which I deem entirely erroneous, I think it proper to express my views on some of the controverted 
points. First, then, Mr. Boughton tolerates the claim made by the late Rev. Nathaniel Bouton, 
D.D., the historian of New Hampshire, that John Bouton of Norwalk, the emigrant of 1635, was 
brother of Noel Bouton, Marquis de Chamilly and Marshal of France, and himself states the emi- 
grant was a Frenchman. If the former claim is not refuted by its mere statement, I think it is by 
a casual examination of the Marshal's family history. This examination, Mr. Boughton, not 
being a French scholar, left to others to make, and they, as I think, abused his confidence. As I 
read history, Nicholas Bouton, Comte de Chamilly, Baron de Montagu et de Nanton and the 
alleged father of John Bouton of Norwalk, was born 1598, m. 1622, and d. 1662, having had 
thirteen children, born and named as follows : (1) Noel, 1623, d. y. ; (2) Denis, 1623, d. y. ; (3) 
Jean Bernard, 1625 ; (4) Philippes, 1626, d. y. ; (5) Charlotte, 1627 ; (6) Herard, 13 Jan. 1630, 
succeeded as Comte de Chamilly; (7) Gabrielle, 1631; (8) Antoinette, 1632; (9) Marguerite, 
1635 ; (10) Noel, 6 April 1636, Marquis de Chamilly, Marshal of France, etc., d. 1715 ; (11) 
Nicholas, 1638 ; (12) Louis, 1640; (13) Anne Francois, 1647. Now in this long list there is of 
course but one John, viz., " Jean Bernard Bouton," and of him the record plainly says " ne le 25 
Septembre 1625 " [only ten years before John came to America], " jviort a Saverne au retour du 
combat de Norlingue." Nor could John have been the uncle of the Marshal; for that "Jean 
Bouton," says the family history, " niort le 2 Septembre 1613 etudiant a Dole." Trusting the 
Counts of Chamilly will now cease to trouble us, let us enquire, Was the emigrant a Frenchman ? 
I reply there has never been cited the slightest proof of it. Tradition alone is depended on. On 
the other hand, he sailed from England, he passed the examination there touching his conformity 
to the Church of England, he and his brother bore English names, he married English wives, he 
gave English names to his children, and he was of unusual prominence in an English colony. He 
is never referred to by his contemporaries as a Frenchman. His English neighbours wrote his 
name scores of times and spelled it at least four different ways after the phonetic fashion of the 
day; and always the sound attempted to be represented was the sound of the English name 
Boughton, never the sound of the name Bouton as pronounced by a Frenchman. Boughtons and 
Boutons, probably deriving their name from Boveton, county Northampton, which may be equi- 
valent to Boueton, have existed in England at least from the time of Edward III. ; and I think no 
reason whatever exists for doubting that the Connecticut settler was one of them. 

We may safely assume, then, that from some unknown home in England two brothers came 
to our shores in the first half of the seventeenth century, viz. : 

1. Richard Bouton of Fairfield. 

2. John Bouton of Norwalk. 


1. Richard Bouton,* whose early death leads me to suppose he was the elder brother, seems 
to have lived in Fairfield and d. in Stamford, Conn., where his will was proved 27 June 1665. He 
bequeathed his property to his wife Ruth for life, remainder to his brother John's son John. This 
disposes of the idea of his being son of the emigrant John, for in 1665 he could not have men- 
tioned the third John Bouton, who was not born till about 1688. I think it probable his wife, 
who d. before 8 Nov. ] 666, was Buth Turney. He seems to have had but one child : 

3. Buth, evidently b. after 1647, for from the Hinman MSS. in the possession of the N.E. 
Historic Genealogical Society it appears that on 8 Nov. 1666 Matthew Marvin, Sr., Bobert Turney, 
and John Bouton, " relatives of Buth Bouton, the da. of Bichard and Buth Bouton his wife, deceased, 
of Fairfield," put out Buth to Matthew Marvin " to be brought up until she be 18 or married. If 
Marvin died she was to be put out to her uncle John Bouton of Norwalk." 

2. John Bottton or Boughton,! called on the list " Jo. Bowton, aged 20," embarked on the 
"Assurance" of London 24 July 1635, J having taken the oath of allegiance and supremacy, and 
having been examined by the minister of Gravesend " of his conformitie in religion," and landed 
at Boston in December. He seems to have lived a short time in Newton and Watertown, but soon, 
probably in 1636, removed to Hartford and thence in 1651 to Norwalk, Conn., where he became a 
man of good estate and great influence. He represented Norwalk in the General Court in Oct. 
1671, Oct. 1673, May 1674, May 1675, Oct, 1676 (then called Bowden), and May and Oct. 1677 
(then called Boughton). His death, to which various dates from 1703 to 1707 have been assigned, 
seems to have occurred at Banbury in the winter of 1704-5. He was thrice married. Mr. James 
Boughton follows Bev. Nathaniel Bouton, whose authority I know not, in calling his first wife 
Joan Turney. She d. in Norwalk, and he m., secondly, 1 Jan. 1656-7 (or as others say 1 June 
1657) Abigail Marvin. (See Marvin, below.) She d. about 1672, and about 1673 he m., thirdly, 
Mary, widow of Jonathan Stevenson. His children were : 

By first wife — 

4. Bridget, b. c. 1642 ; m. Daniel Kellogg, 1665, and had issue. 

By wife Abigail — 

5. John, b. 30 Sept, 1659. (See below.) 

6. Matthew, b. 24 Dec. 1661. 

7. Eachel, b. 6, 15, or 16 Dec. 1667 ; m. Matthias St. John. 

8. Abigail, b. 1 April 1670; m Smith. 

9. Mary, b. 26 May 1671 ; m. David Waterbury. 

By third wife — 

10. Joseph, b. c. 1674 ; m. Mary .... 

11. Thomas, b. c. 1676. 

12. Elizabeth, b. c. 1679 ; m. 1698 Edmund Waring. 

13. Bichard, b. c. 1680; Clerk of the Society at Wilton, Conn., 1726. 

5. John Bouton, distinguished as Sergeant Bouton, was b. in Norwalk 30 Sept. 1659, and 
there m., first, about 1682 (the mother of all his children) Sarah Gregory. (See Gregory, below.) 
He m., secondly, Mary Hayes. He was a man of considerable prominence, and is said to have lived 
ninety years. He was, perhaps, the Deacon John Bouton who, with a wife Mary, was amoc 
those from Stamford at the organization of the parish of New Canaan, Conn., in 1731, though this 
may have been his son. 

* Mr. James Boughton makes Bichard the eldest son, instead of brother, of John ; but I think 
the authorities quoted in the text sufficiently shew this to be erroneous. Prom the wording of his 
will as I am told Huntington printed it, I once supposed he was father of John. Savage con- 
sidered him John's brother. 

t He was usually called Bouton, but sometimes Boughton, occasionally Bowton, and once, at 
least, Bowden. Most of his descendants, especially in Conn., spell their name Bouton, but a goodly 
number bear the longer form Boughton. 

X Hinman says he embarked in the " Alice," Bichard Orchard, master, a few days earlier ; but 
his name does not appear on the list of the passengers by the " Alice" printed by Hotten. 


Children, by wife Sarah — 

14. Elizabeth, b. 1683 ; m., 6 Oct. 1698, Edmund Warren. 

15. Jachin, b. c. 1684 ; m Atvvater, and had issue. 

16. John, b. 1688 ; m. Mary Pettit, and had issue. 

17. Nathaniel, b. 1691. (See below.) 

18. Daniel, b. 1693 ; m. Elizabeth Roberts, and had issue. 

19. Eleazer, b. c. 1695 ; m., first, Elizabeth Seymour ; secondly, widow Mary (Pettit) Bouton. 
He was father and grandfather of the first Boughtons of Boughton Hill, Victor, N.Y. 

20. Joseph, b. c. 1697. 

21. Dibby [? Deborah]. 

22. Molly. 

23. Patty. 

17. Nathaniel Bouton, b. in Norwalk 1691; m., first, Mary . . . ., secondly, Hannah Betts 
of Stamford, Conn., whence he removed to New Canaan, Conn. In 1731 he, and apparently his 
brothers John, Daniel, and Eleazer, and perhaps his father, contributed to the building of the first 
church there, Nathaniel contributing £61 lis., which was considerably more than either of the 
others gave. Huntington says his children were by Hannah, but James Boughton thinks they 
were by Mary. They were : 

24. Hannah, b. 24 Nov. 1721 or 1722 ; m. Timothy Delevan of New Canaan. 

25. Abigail, b. 28 Eeb. 1723-4 ; m. Josiah Weed. 

26. Nathaniel, b. 6 Sept. 1726 ; m. Lydia Penoyer. 

27. Samuel, b. 11 April 1730. (See below.) 

28. Jehiel, b. 17 Feb. 1732 ; m. Anna Finch. 

29. Mary, b. 11 Nov. 1734 ; m. Samuel Scribner. 

30. John, b. 23 July 1737. 

31. Daniel, b. 24 Oct. 1740; m. Mary Mead, and had issue. He lived in New Canaan, and d. 
there 1821. 

32. Eebecca, b. 1742. 

27. Samuel Bouton, b. 11 April 1730, at about the time his parents removed from Stam- 
ford to New Canaan. They may have lived in that small portion of Conn, called the Oblong, 
which was ceded to N.T. in his early youth, and upon which stands the village of South Salem in 
the town of Lewisboro, Westchester Co., N.Y. He was long considered identical with Samuel 
Boughton (No. 33, below), but that Samuel died before 1761, while there seems to be ample 
evidence that the subject of this paragraph was living in Salem, Westchester Co., in 1778, and at 
Pound Ridge in 1783. A numerous family claim descent from him through a wife Abigail. 

33. Samuel Bouton, or Boughton, is said to have been a distant kinsman of Eleazer Bouton 
(No. 19, above), but his ancestry is unknown if he was not identical with No. 27, above. According 
to tradition, he was b. in Connecticut in 1734 or 1735. Like his namesake, he seems to have lived 
in the town of Lewisboro ; for there, in the village of South Salem, he married Eunice Nichols* 
25 March 1759. He died two years later leaving one child : 

* The marriage is recorded on the books of the Presbyterian Church of South Salem, a society 
organized as Congregational, 19 May 1752, but which became Presbyterian, 29 Sept. 1763. Eunice 
Nichols, of whose parents I have learned only that they were people of considerable social position, was 
a woman of exceptional strength of character. Born 5 March 1739, and left a widow at twenty-one, 
she administered her first husband's estate, and m., secondly, 22 March 1761 John Osburn, to whom 
she bore twelve children, who were baptized in South Salem in right of their mother. Her second 
husband d. before the baptism of his youngest child in Jan. 1783. She then removed to the 
vicinity of Otisville, Orange Co., N.Y., and, after her children were grown, in., thirdly, a Capt. Par- 
nam, whom she survived. She died in the summer of 1822, and was buried beside her last husband 
in a cemetery on or adjoining their farm. Her children by John Osburn, Osborn, or Osbourne, 
were, Ellen, Sarah, Daniel, Eunice, John, Mary, Ebenezer, Joseph, Hannah and Debby (twins), 
Jeremiah, and Elizabeth. 


34. Samuel, b. 16" Sept. 1759. (See below.) 

34. Samuel Boughton, as be spelled bis name, was b. in or near what is now the village of 
Soutb Salem, "Westchester Co., N.T., 16 Sept. 1759. By tbe loss of bis fatber wben a few montbs old, 
and tbe fact tbat bis motber was left a widow again, witb a large family of younger cbildren, wben 
be was just entering manbood, be was largely deprived of tbe opportunity of acquiring an educa- 
tion, or getting a successful start in life. In fact, be always remained poor, but bis marriage witb a 
Tracy sufficiently sbews be did not lose tbe social status wbicb was always conceded to tbe Con- 
necticut Boutons. He probably went with his mother to Otisville, and in the neighbouring village 
of Shawangunk, Ulster Co., m. Lucy Tracy. (See Teacy, below.) They are said to have lived in 
Scipio, N.Y., a number of years, and finally, in or about the year 1797, settled in Victor, Ontario 
Co., N.T., where he died early in this century. His widow, who is mentioned as his adm'x in 1814, 
late in life m. Deacon Abijah "Williams, of Victor, and her grandchildren attended her wedding. 
Samuel and Lucy Boughton bad : 

35. Olive, b. 1793. (See below.) 

36. Elizabeth, b. 1798 ; m., 1816, Ansel Perkins, and had twelve children. 

37. Eunice, lived in Victor, unmarried. 

38. Addison, b. c. 1810; lived in Penn Van, N.Y., in., and d. s.p. 

35. Olive Boughton is said to have been in her fourth year when her parents settled in 
Victor, and to have been b. in Conn., where her mother may have been visiting. I place her birth 
in 1793, as she is said to have been fifteen years of age when she m. James Upton, Esq., as stated 
in the pedigree. She d. 24 April 1842. 


This family is said to have come from Essex, Eng. Two brothers settled in Conn., viz. : 

1. Matthew, of whom below. 

2. Eeinold of Saybrook ; m., and had issue. 

1. Matthew Maevin, husbandman, aged 35, according to the custom house record, embarked 
at London, 15 April 1635, with his wife Elizabeth, aged 31, the five children first mentioned below, 
and two servants. He was an original proprietor at Hartford in 1638, and a pioneer at Norwalk, 
which he represented in tbe General Court in 1654. He m., secondly, widow Alice Kellogg, and 
d. in 1680 or 1687. "While one of his daughters was ancestress of the mother of Hon. "William ~W. 
Upton, the latter's first wife descended from another of them. Matthew Marvin's children, all by 
bis wife Elizabeth, were : 

3. Elizabeth, m. John Olmstead, s.p., and made her will 1689. In the custom house record in 
1635 her age is placed at 31, whence she has been supposed to have been sister instead of dau. of 
the first Matthew. I agree with Savage in thinking she was dau., and tbat " 31 " was error for " 11." 

4. Matthew, at. 8, 1635 ; m. Mary . . . ., and had issue. 

5. Mary, at. 6, 1635; m., first, Eichard Bashnell ; secondly, Thomas Adgate. 

6. Sarah, at. 3, 1635. (See below.) 

7. Hannah, at. 6 mos., April 1635 ; m. Thomas Seymour. 

8. Abigail, b. c. 1640. (See below.) 

9. Samuel bapt. 16 Eeb. 1648. 

10. Eacbel, b. 30 Dec. 1649 ; m. Samuel Smith. 

6. Saeah Maevtn, b. in England about 1632, came witb her parents in 1635, and at Hartford 
in., first, 4 Oct. 1648, William Goodrich of "Wethersfield, by whom she was ancestress of Maria 
Amanda Hollister, wife of Hon. William W. Upton. (See Goodbich, note 6, below.) After his 
death, she m. Capt. "William Curtiss of Stratford, where she d. in 1702, without issue by tbe second 

8. Abigail Marvin, first of tbe family b. in America, saw tbe light at Hartford before 1641, 
and m., as before stated, 1 Jan. 1656-7, or 1 June 1657, John Bouton of Xorwalk. (See Bouton, 
above.) She d. about 1672. 


1. John Geegoey was living in New Haven before 1646, removed to Korwalk about 1653, was 
a Representative several times after 1662, and living in 1688. Of his cbildren we know : 


2. John, of whom below. 

3. Jachin, ra., and had issue. 

4. Joseph, bapt. 26 July 1646. 

5. Thomas, bapt. 19 March 1648 ; in. Elizabeth Pardie, and had issue. 

6. Sarah, m. 1676 James Benedict. 

2. John Geegoey of Norwalk, second of the name, had :

10. Abigail, b. June 1672. 

11. Mary, b. Dec. 167-4. 

8. Saeah Geegoey, b. in Norwalk in Dec. 1667, m., about 1682, John Bouton, by whom she 
had issue. (See Bouton, above.) 

Tracy. Hoyal Descent. 

In an appendix to Walworth's ' Hyde Genealogy,' the curious reader will find the ancestry of 
the Saxon kings traced from Odin (whose ancestry I find elsewhere carried back twenty genera- 
tions) to Cerdic, from him to Egbert, 17th King of the West Saxons, and the family line carried 
through the latter's grandson, Alfred the Great, down to the present day. Alfred's descendant — 

Etheleed, the Unready, by his second wife Emma, dau. of Richard, Duke of Normandy, and 
aunt of Robert, father of William the Conqueror, had, besides his successor Edward the Confessor 
and another son, a dau., viz. — 

Goda. She m. Dreux, Count of Vixin in Prance, known to English historians as Walter de 
Mante, said to have been a descendant of Charlemagne. She held lands in Gloucestershire which 
are still possessed by her descendants. Her second son — 

Rudolph or Ralph de Mantes, Lord of Sudeley and Toddington, was by the Confessor made 
Earl of Hereford. His son — 

Haeold de Mantes, m. Matilda, dau. of Hugh Lupus, first Earl of Chester, and had a son — 

John de Sudeley, Lord of Sudeley and Toddington. He m. Grace Tracy, dau. and heir of 
Henry de Tracy, Lord of Barnstable, Devon. They had, besides a son Ralph, heir to his father, a 
son called — 

Sie William Teacy, Kt., who took his mother's lands and family name. He was one of the 
assassins of Thomas a Becket. His son — 

Sie Olivee Teacy held Barnstable in 1195. His son — 

William Teacy " of Toddington " (a designation which attached to his descendants in the next 
13 generations) m. Hawis de Born, and had — 

Hen by Teacy, whose eldest son — 

Heney Teacy, living 1275, left a son — 

Sie William Tracy, Knight of Gloucestershire 1290, and father of— 

William Teacy, Sheriff 1324-9, Kt. of the Shire 1313, 1321. His son and heir— 

Willam Teacy, living 7 Edw. III., was father of — 

Sie John Teacy, Sheriff 1368, father of— 

Sie John Teacy, who d. 1379, leaving a sou- 
William Teacy, Sheriff 1395, who d. 1399, leaving a son — 

William Teacy, Sheriff 1418, member of the Privy Council 1431. He m. Alice, widow of 
William Gifford, and dau. and co-heir of Sir Guy de la Spine, Lord of Coughton, Warwickshire, and 
was father* of — 

* According to Walworth. But the Visitation of Gloucestershire in 1623 makes the husband 
of Margery Paunsfoot, son of a Henry Tracy of Tuddington, son of a Sir John whose father and 
grandfather were named Henry. The jiedigree of Baron Sudeley, printed in Burke's ' Peerage,' 
agrees with Walworth on this point, but differs from him on several others. Prom this point I 
quote Walworth, slightly modified by the Visitation and other authorities. 


William Tract, Sheriff 1443. He m. Margaret, dau. of Sir Jolm Pauncefoot by his wife 
Margaret Beauchamp, and was father of — 

Heney Tract, Esq., who rn. Alice, dau. and co-heir of Thomas Baldington, and d. 1506, leaving 
a son and heir — 

Sir William Tract, Knight, also of Toddington, Sheriff of Gloucestershire 1513. He 
embraced the reformed religion, and d. about 1531, leaving, by his wife Margaret, dau. of Sir Tho- 
mas Throckmorton of Coss Court, besides others, a son and heir, William Tracy of Toddington, and 
a second son, viz. — 

Richard Tract of Stanway, co. Glouc, Sheriff 2 Eliz. He acquired some renown as a writer 
of theological works in defence of his father's religion. He m. Barbara Lucy, a pupil of Pox the 
Martyr, dau. of Thomas Lucy of Charlecote in Warwickshire, and aunt of Shakespeare's "Justice 
Shallow." She was the 16th generation from Hugh de Mountfort, son of Gilbert de Gaunt and 
Alice Mountfort, and great-grandson of Baldwin V., Count of Flanders, who m. Alice, dau. of 
Robert II., King of France. Through Judith, dau. of Charles the Bald, and wife of Baldwin, first 
Count of Flanders, Barbara Lucy was descended from Charlemagne. Through Alfritha, wife of 
Baldwin II., she was descended from Alfred the Great. Richard Tracy d. in 1569 leaving, by his 
said wife, six children, viz. — 

1. Sir Paul Tracy of Stanwa}', Kt. and Bart., m. Anne, dau. of Ralph Shakerly, Esq., and had 

2. Samuel Tracy of Clifford, Hereford, in., Catherine, dau. of Thomas Smyth, and had issue. 

3. Nathaniel Tracy (of whom below). 

4. Hester Tracy, m. Rowland Smart. 

5. Judith Tracy, m. Francis or John Throgmorton. 

6. Susan Tracy, m., first, Edward Barker ; secondly, Sir Henry Billingsley, Kt., Alderman of 

3. Nathaniel Tract is mentioned in the family pedigree at the Visitation of 1623, but no 
more than his name is there told. Walworth says he received lands in Tewkesbury from his father, 
and was father of the emigrant.* The latter : 

7. Lieut. Thomas Tract, probably b. at Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, about 1610 or 1615, 
emigrated to New England in April 1636, and was in Salem in Feb. 1637. He soon removed to 
Saybrook, and thence to Wethersfield, Conn. In 1645 he and others relieved Uncas with provisions, 
etc., when besieged by the chief Pessachus, an act which led to the grant of Norwich to the whites. 
In 1660 he settled in Norwich, where he was one of the patentees. He represented that town in 
the General Court of Conn, twenty-seven sessions, between Oct. 1662 and July 1684, and d. there 
7 Nov. 1685. His great influence in affairs seems to have been due more to superior education and 
social rank than to the possession of wealth. He received his title in Capt. Avery's company of 
dragoons, raised in 1673. He m. his first wife, mother of all his children, and supposed to have 
been Mar}', widow of Edward Mason, in Hartford in 1641. He m., secondly, in 1679, Martha, dau. 
of John Bourne, and widow of John Bradford, and, thirdly, after April 1680, Mary, dau. of Nathaniel 
and Elizabeth (Deming) Foote, and widow of John Stoddard and of the first John Goodrich. His 
children were : 

8. John, b. 1642 ; m., 1670, Mary, dau. of Hon. Josiah Winslow, and had issue. 

* I have always considered it very unfortunate that Walworth cited no authoritj' for this state- 
ment. No writer, however eminent, ought to ask us to take his ipse dixit on such a point. Two 
years before the death of Col. J. L. Chester, whose mother was a Tracy, I called his attention to 
the statement in Winsor's ' History of Duxbury ' that the emigrant Thomas Tracy was son of 
Stephen of Plymouth and Duxbury. He replied he had taken it for granted that Chancellor 
Walworth had brought all the powers of his legal mind to bear on the subject, and had been content 
with the Chancellor's conclusions, but now he would investigate the whole subject. Death cut 
short this work, but not before he had pronounced Winsor's statement unfounded, and based on 
alleged "records" which had no existence. 


9. Jonathan, b. c. 1644 ; m., 1672, Mary, dau. of Lieut. Francis Griswold. 

10. Thomas, b. c. 1646 ; settled in the present town of Preston. 

11. Miriam, b. c. 1648 ; m. 1668 Thomas Waterman. 

12. Soloman, M.D., b. 1651 ; m., first, 1676 or 1678, Sarah, dau. of Deacon Simon Huntington. 
She d. 1683 ; m., secondly, 1686 Sarah, widow of Thomas Sluman, and dau. of ... . Bliss, had issue 
by each. 

13. Daniel, b. 1652 ; m. 1682 Abigail Adgate (or Marvin, says Talcott). 

14. Samuel, b. c. 1654 ; d. unm. 1693. 
Prom one of these sons descended — 

15. Benjamin Teacy, who seems to have resided in Canaan or New Canaan, Conn., in the latter 
half of the eighteenth century. A slender tradition says he came from Norwich. His dau. Lucy 
in her old age spoke of herself as " of Canaan " at the time of her marriage, though she had 
probably removed with her father to N.Y. State before that event. Tradition says he was a 
wealthy farmer in Conn., but lost most of his property by becoming surety for his brothers, removed 
to Shawangunk, Ulster Co., N.Y., about 1783, and thence to Scipio, N.Y., where he and his wife 
are buried. Her maiden name may have been Olive Killam. I know not the order of the births 
of his children, who were : 

16. John, d. in Waterford, Penn. 

17. Avery, d. in Scipio, N.Y., leaving a widow and five sons, all dead in 1879. 

18. Shubail, d. in Erie, Penn. 

19. Jedediah, d. in Erie, Penn. 

20. Lucy, b. c. 1770. (See below.) 

21. Eunice, m Watkins in Scipio, and removed to 111. 

22. Abigail, m. Simeon Parks of Victor, N.Y., and had issue. 

23. Mercy, b. 1775 ; m Parnam, and d. in Pittsford, N.Y., 1873, aged 98, leaving issue, 

of whom her youngest son lived in Kansas in 1879, and her dau. m. Philo Parks, her sister's son. 
Another son was Hon. Henry Parnam, a well-known patron of Yale, with which university some 
of his sons are now connected. 

20. Ltjct Teacy was b. in Conn., perhaps in Canaan, about 1770, as I suppose from the fact 
that in her old age she stated that her marriage, which must have occurred in or before 1792, took 
place at the age of 21. She m., first, at Shawangunk, N.Y., Samuel Boughton, as before stated. 
(Por issue, see Boughton, above.) When past middle age, perhaps about 1830, while living with 
her son-in-law James Upton, Esq., at Victor, N.Y., she m., secondly, Deacon Abijah Williams of 
that place. She was living in the winter of 1838-9. 

(6) Ancestey of Maeia Amanda Hollistee, wife of Hon. William W. Upton. (Page 148.) 

This surname, of uncertain origin,* occurs in several parts of England, but I do not find it of 
frequent occurrence in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, except within a radius of about 
thirty miles of Bristol, in Gloucestershire, Somerset, and Wiltshire. In that vicinity, spelling 
their name Hollisfor, they were numerous, wealthy, and influential, owning landed estates, and 
intermarrying with the local gentry. If gentle themselves, they seem (like some other gentry 
of Gloucestershire) not to have appeared at any Visitation. If yeomen, they excelled, in influence 
and social importance, many of the gentry. f The American Hollisters claim an unproven descent 
from the Hollistors of Stinchcombe, Glouc, of whom I mention one line : 

* I take this opportunity of stating that the sketch of " The English Hollisters," prefixed to 
Case's ' The Hollister Pamily,' and attributed to the writer, was not written for publication. It 
consists of a few notes hastily thrown together for the purpose of aiding Dr. Case's investigations. 

f These Hollistors seem to have borne, Salle, in base argent, between a greyhound courant bend- 

toays and a dolphin hauriant, three roses gules : on a chief of the second, two slips of strawberry 

fructed proper ; with a crest : An arm in armour embowed between two sprigs of strawberry as in 

the arms, holding a branch of holly. These arms and crest, with the motto " Fuimus et sub Deo 

erimus," have long been claimed by the Connecticut Hollisters. 



1. John Hollistor of Stinchcombe, Glouc., buried his wife Maryan 5 Aug. 1585. He 
probably bad a second wife, Alice, who was a widow wben she made her will 24 Jan. 1621, 
which mentions her son Nich. Workman and his children, and her daus. Winifred Trotman, 
Margaret Parnell, Elizabeth Trotman, Joan Pri chard, and Ann Thomas. By deed, dated 24 April 
5 James [1608], Sir Robert Lovett sold to John Hollister the manors of Stinchcombe and Brad- 
stone. The manor of Stinchcombe was sold by the grandson of this John Hollister before 1649, 
probably some years before that date, to Samuel Trotman. (Fosbrooke's ' History of Gloucester,' 
i. , 44:6.) John Hollistor seems to have had the following cbildren (unless Joan. Margaret and 
Ann were by another husband of the wife Alice), viz. : 

By wife Maryan — 

2. Roger Hollistor, heir to his father. (See below.) 

By wife Alice — 

3. Winifred Hollistor, m. William Trotman at Stinchcombe 28 Dec. 1607. 

4. Margaret, m Parnell. 

5. Elizabeth, probably bapt. at Stinchcombe 1590 ; there m. John Trotman 26 Dec. 1614. 

6. Joan, m Prichard. 

7. Ann, m Thomas. 

2. Rogek Hollistor of Stinchcombe, son and heir of John, m. Alice Fisher 28 Dec. 1607, 
and had at least two children. They were bapt. at Stincbcombe, viz. : 

8. John, bapt. 29 Oct. 1609. (See below.) 

9. Maryan, bapt. 20 July 1616. 

8. John Hollistor of Stinchcombe, son of Roger, sold that manor some time before 1649. 
Whether he was the John Hollistor buried at Stinchcombe 4 March 1642, or whether, having 
sold the manor, he migrated to America, and if so, whether he settled in Weymouth or 
in Wethersfield,* I consider uncertain. He had two children baptized at Stinchcombe, viz. : 

10. Mary, bapt. 2 May 1640. 

11. Hannah, bapt. 2 March 1642. 

12 (? 8). Lieut. John Hollister of Wethersfield, Conn., a man of good family and 
education, and by many considered identical with No. 8 above, first appears upon tbe Conn, 
records 2 March 1642, when he served as a juror. He was admitted freeman May 1643. He 
became a man of the first importance in the colony, and acquired a large estate, most of his 
lands being on the east side of the river in what is now G-lastenbury. His controversy with the 
minister of Wethersfield, Rev. John Russell, drove the latter from his pastorate, and led to the 
planting of Hadley, Mass. Lieut. Hollister d. in April 1665, having had by his wife, Joanna 
Treat (see Treat, below), five sons and three daughters. f The eldest son was : 

13. John Hollister of Glastenbury, b. in Wethersfield about 1644 ; m. Sarah Goodrich 20 
Nov. 1667 (see Goodrich, below). He d. in Glastenbury 24 Nov. 1711, having had six sons and 
four daus. Mrs. Upton was descended from the second and third sons, who were : 

14. Thomas, b. 14 Jan. 1672. (See below.) 

15. Joseph, b. 8 July 1674. (See below.) 

14. Deacon Thomas Hollister, second son of John, Jr., was b. in Wethersfield, in that part 
which in 1692 became Glastenbury, 14 Jan. 1672, and d. in the latter town 12 Oct. 1741. By bis 
wife Dorothy Hills, whom be m. in 1695 (see Hills, below), he had five sons and eight daus. 
The second son was : 

* I think Dr. Case is right (' The Hollister family,' p. 30) in thinking John Hollister of 
Wethersfield is not to be identified with his namesake of Weymouth. The latter, who was a 
townsman there in 1645, seems to have leased his lands in New England to the Torreys, and 
returned to the old country ; where, at Bristol, 12 Sept. 1690, he made his will, an abstract of 
which may be seen in the N. E. H. and G. Register, vol xl., p. 62. 

f The very thorough manner in which Dr. Lafayette W. Case compiled ' The Hollister 
Family of America ' justifies me, I think, in condensing my sketch of this family, and 
referring the reader to that valuable book, published at Chicago in 1S86. 


16. Lieut, and Deacon Gideon Hollistee, b. in Glastenbury 23 Sept. 1699. He settled 
in the Eastbury Parish of Glastenbury, and is buried there. In 1723 he m. Rachel Talcott. (See 
Talcott, below.) He d. 15 Feb. 1785, and his widow 13 June 1790. They had three sons and 
six daus., of whom the second son was — 

17. Nathaniel Hollistee of Glastenbury, b. 1731 ; m. 29 Oct. 1754 Mabel Matson (called 
also Mehitabel Mattison ; see Matson, below). She was b. 1739, and d. 16 or 26 Sept. 1824. 
He d. 4 June 1810. They had nine sons and seven daus. The oldest child was — 

18. Patience Hollister, b. in Glastenbury 21 March 1755 ; m. 18 Nov. 1778, her kinsman 
Joseph Hollister, No. 21, below. She d. in Salisbury, Conn., 27 April or 21 May 1826, leaving 
issue as stated in our account of her husband, whose pedigree we now resume. 

15. Joseph Hollister, third son, as we have seen, of John, Jr., was b. in Wethersfield or 
Glastenbury 8 July 1674. He lived in Glastenbury, where he d. 9 July 1746, and m., first, Ann 
.... 27 Nov. 1694. She d. 5 Oct. 1712 in her 34th year. He m., secondly, Sarah . . . . ; who bore 
him no children. He had three sons and as many daus. The eldest child was — 

19. Joseph Hollister of Glastenbury, b. 28 Dec. 1696 ; m. 28 Dec. 1721 Mary White. (See 
White, below.) He d. 8 Oct. 1746. His widow m. Jonathan Hale, and d. 18 Jan. 1780. They 
had two sons and three daus. The fourth child and eldest and only-surviving son was — ■ 

20. Joseph Hollister of Glastenbury, b. 5 Sept. 1732 ; d. 3 May 1793. He m. thrice — first, 
2 or 22 Oct. 1751, Rebecca Treat (see Treat, below), mother of all his children, who d. 24 Dec. 
1768 ; he m., secondly, 8 March 1770, Anna Handford, who d. 26 Oct. 1784 ; and, thirdly, 14 
Feb. 1785, Bethiah Steel, who survived him and m. Henry Dayton. Joseph and Eebecca 
Hollister had four sons and three daus. Their first born was — 

21. Sergeant Joseph Hollister, a gallant soldier in the Revol. War, b. in Glastenbury 26 
Aug. 1752, o.s. After serving in the war until forced home by ill health, he m. 18 Nov. 1778 
his cousin Patience Hollister, No. 18. above. In April 1795 they removed to Sharon, Conn., 
whence he removed to Salisbury, Conn., where he d. 21 Aug. 1848, aged nearly 96. He had 
eight sons and three daughters, of whom the fourth son and sixth child was — 

22. Joseph Hollister, b. in Glastenbury 6 Sept. 1789. After removing with his parents 
to Sharon and Salisbury, while studying for the Bar, he taught school at Adams Settlement 
near Danby, Tompkins Co., N.Y. There he m. one of his pupils, Amanda Adams (see Adams, 
below), in Feb. 1817. They lived successively at Oswego, where he was admitted to the Bar, 
Danby, Spenser, Danby again, Le Roy, and Victor, N.Y., and Victor, Mich., whither he removed 
in 1842. He d. 21 Aug. 1849. Their children were : 

23. Maria Amanda, b. 13 Aug. 1818. (See below.) 

24. Eliza Lee, b. 7 Sept. 1820 ; d. 1855 unm. 

25. Charlotte Jane, b. 2 July 1822 ; d. 1842 unm. 

26. Harriet, b. 23 Sept. 1823 ; m. A. A. Terry, 

27. Charles Edward, b. 13 Sept. 1826 ; d. 1826 unm.

1. William Hills came to Roxbury, Mass., in 1632, and was admitted freeman 14 May 
1634. His and his first wife's name appear on the Apostle Eliot's list of the Roxbury church 
members, and it is probable he came from near Nazing, Essex. He removed to Hartford, where 
he d. in July 1683. He m., first, before 22 April 1640, Phillis Lyman (see Lyman, below), who 
was mother of at least the first three of his children. He m., secondly, after 1653, widow Mary 
Steele, dau. of Andrew Warner. The children named in his will were : 

2. William, m. and had issue. 

3. John, m. and had issue. 

4. Joseph, bapt. 17 March 1649-50. (See below.) 

5. Benjamin, d. at Hartford. 

6. Jonathan, m. and had issue. 

7. Hannah, m. Thomas Kilburn. 

8. Susannah, m, John Kilburn. 

9. Sarah, m Ward. 

10. Mary. 

4. Joseph Hills, bapt. at Hartford 17 March 1649-50, settled in Glastenbury, and had at 
least one child, viz. : 

11. Dorothy Hills, b. 1677. She, in 1695, m. Deacon Thomas Hollister, by whom she had 
issue. (See Hollister, above.) 


I understand Dr. Lyman Coleman's ' Genealogy of the Lyman Family ' suggests the follow- 
ing as the pedigree of Richard Lyman, the emigrant to Roxbury : 

Thomas Lyman of Navistoke, Essex, about 1488 m. Elizabeth, heiress of Henry Lambert of 
High Ongar, and had a son — 


Henry Lyman, who, in 1517, m. Alice Hyde, by whom he had a son — 

John Lyman, living 1546. He had two sons, viz. — 

Henry and John ; of whom the latter was of High Ongar, and was father of Sir John 
Leman, Lord Mayor of London, while his brother Henry, before mentioned, was father of two 
emigrants to America, namely, Richard of Roxbury, and Henry Lyman, who d. *. p., leaving a 
widow Elizabeth, who is said to have corresponded with her husband's " cousin " the Lord 

This pedigree does not seem entirely satisfactory. Sir John was Mayor in 1616. The 
' Visitation of London,' 1633-5, makes him son of " Lemman of Countie of Norfolk," and younger 
brother of " William Lemman of Beccles in Suff." (N. and Q., 7th S., ii., 272.) Burke's 
' Extinct Baronetage ' makes the Mayor a son of John Leman of Gillingham, Norfolk, and 
Beccles, Suffolk. Moreover it would appear probable from Lechford's ' Note Book,' page 325, 
that the emigrant Henry Lyman sailed from Bristol. 

1. Richard Lyman, however descended, was b. at High Ongar, Essex, and bapt. there 30 
Oct. 1580. He m. Sarah Osborne, and had nine children bapt. at High Ongar, of whom the five 
named below came to America with him, and are named in his will made at Hartford 22 April 
1640. He came with the Apostle Eliot in the "Lion," settled at Roxbury 1631, was freeman 
11 June 1633, went to Conn, in the " Great Removal," and was an original proprietor at Hart- 
ford, where he d. in 1640, as did his widow Sarah soon after. They had : 

2. Phillis, bapt. 12 Sept. 1611. (See below.)

wealth and influence. Tbis town he represented in the General Court in 1634, being at the 
same time a Selectman. In 1636 he was one of the founders of Hartford, w r here he was known 
as " The Worshipful J\Jr. John Talcott.'" and was for many years a Representative and Treasurer 
of the Colony. He d. there in his mansion at the head of Main Street in March 1660. His

John Mott, who held lands in Shalford, Essex, in 1375, is considered ancestor of — 

Thomas Mott of Booking, Essex, buried at Braintree, Essex, 5 March 1554. By his wift 
Alice Meade he had two sons, of whom the second — 

Mark Mott, bapt. 25 April 1549, was ultimately heir to his father. He purchased the 
manor of Sheme Hall. Shalford, in 1599, was living in Braintree 1601, and buried there 14 Dec. 
1637. By his wife Frances Gutter of Booking, who was buried in Braintree 23 Feb. 1615, he 
had six sons and three daus. His son — 

John Mott, Esq., of Eyland, and later of Wiston, Suffolk, b. 1577, is described as " of 
Clifford's Inn, Gent., aged 25," in his licence dated 9 Jan. 1601-2, to marry Alice, dau. of 
Thomas Harrington of Althorne, Essex, yeoman. They had four sons and as many daus., of

bury, where his name is first on the list of church members. He was chosen Treasurer of the 
Colony, and was a man of the highest consideration. About 1636 he removed to found Spring- 
field, probably named after his Eng. home near Chelmsford, Essex. He m., secondly, Frances

d. in Springfield 26 Oct. 1657. 


A family of this name was among the early settlers of Boston, and it is not improbable that 
Thomas Matson, mentioned below, was of that stock. But in the absence of proof, I am content 
to follow Chapin, who says : 

Thomas Matson came to Glastenbury, Conn., from Middletown. His ancestors were from 
Ireland. About 1732 he m. Rachel Fox. (See Fox, below.) They had seven children, of whom 
one was — 

Mabel Matson, b. 1739. She m. 29 Oct. 1754 Nathaniel Hollister, by whom she had 
issue. (See Hollister, above.) She d. 16 or 26 Sept. 1824. Some of her descendants call 
her by the longer form of both names, " Mehitabel Mattison." 

1. Richaed Fox, said to have been b. 1641, lived in that part of Wethersfield which is now 
Glastenbury, and d. 19 March 1708. By his wife Beriah Smith (see Smith, below) he had ten 
children, including : 


2. Ebenezer, b. 1690. (See below.) 

3. Abram, b. 1692 ; m. Dorothy, dau. of Deacon Thomas and Dorothy (Hills) Hollister. 

2. Ebenezer Fox, b. in G-lastenbury 1690 ; m. 27 Jan. 1714 Elizabeth Arnold (see Arnold, 
below), and d. 20 Feb. 1746. His dau.— 

4. Rachel Fox, m., about 1732, Thomas Matson, and had issue. (See Matson, above.) 


1. Richard Smith was at Wethersfield with a family of grown children in 1648. He 
himself said he came from the Vineyard " 30 or 40 years " before 1684, a statement questioned 
by Savage and Chapin for reasons beyond my comprehension. He was a man of great influence, 
which he threw upon Hollister's side in his controversy with Rev. Mr. Russell. Savage gives 
him the children mentioned below, but notes both that Chapin considered them children of the 
son Richard, and that he and Sylvester Judd were uncertain on tbat point. Bold would be the 
man who would venture, after that, to speak positively. These children were : 

2. Mary, m. in 1648 Matthias Treat. 

3. Richard, mentioned as a freeman 1669. 

4. Esther, m. John Strickland. 

5. Beriah (of whom below). 

6. Bethia, m. 1684 Joshua Stoddard.

Elizabeth Arnold, m. 27 Jan. 1714 Ebenezer Fox, and had issue. (See Fox, above.) 


1. John White, Esq.. an elder in later life, took the oath necessary for emigration, 22 June 
1632, at London, and arrived in Boston in the ''Lion" 16 Sept. of that year. He settled in 
Cambridge, was admitted freeman 4 March 1633, removed to Hartford 1636, and was one of the 
founders of Hadley 1659. He was a representative for Hadley 1664 and 1669, returned to 
Hartford before 1675, and d. there Dec. 1683 or Jan. 1684. By his wife Mary, he had ;

1. Edwaed Adams was at New Haven 1640, Milford 1646, and Fairfield 1650. The Milford 
records shew a grant of land to him by the General Court 16 March 1646. He d. in Fairfield 
about 1671, his will being dated 7 Aug. of that year. His widow. Mary, whom Savage 
erroneously calls Margaret, m. Anthony Beers, who was drowned before 1676, and her son 
Nathan Adams swore to her inventory 16 Aug. 1687, as that thorough genealogist, O. P. Dexter, 
Esq., vigilently noted, and kindly informed me. The children mentioned in his will are : 

2. Samuel (of whom below). 

3. Abraham. 

4. Mary, b. e. 1647, mentioned as Mary Merwin in her father's will, possibly she m. a Mead. 

5. Nathaniel of Fairfield, d. s.p. 


6. John, d. s.]). 

7. Nathan, living Nov. 1687. 

2. Samuel Adams of Fairfield, Conn., m. Mary Meeker (see Meeker, below) " 15 July 
1677-8," according to the town record, which doubtless should read 1677. He d. probably in 
1693, as his inventory bears date 10 Feb. 1693-4. His children, all b. in Fairfield, were : 

8. Samuel, b. 1 Jan. 1677-8. 

9. Daniel, b. 17 May 1679. (See below.) 

10. Sarah, b. 2 Oct. 1680.

14. " Jeniamin," says the record, a dau., probably Jemima, b. 28 Dec. 1690. 

15. John, b. 6 Sept. 1692. 

9. Daniel Adams was b. in Fairfield 17 May 1679. He removed to Redding, Conn., 
probably before 1720, as he had a child bapt. in Fairfield in 1717, while his son Abraham, who 
could not well have been b. after 1720, does not appear to have been bapt. in Fairfield. Daniel 
Adams was certainly in Redding in 1733-4. I suppose he had two wives, who may have been 
sisters. The church records of Fairfield shew that his wife Rebecca renewed the covenant 30 
Aug. 1702. I suppose she d. between 1711 and 1715, though the dau. bapt. in 1711 may have 
been by the second wife. The Fairfield land records (iii., *85) contain a receipt from Daniel 
Adams, for his present wife Sarah, to his brother-in-law Robert Turney, from which it appears 
that 2 April 1715 he had a wife Sarah, dau. of Benjamin Turney, deceased. (See Turkey, 
below.) Of his children I know only the following, nor am I certain I have assigned all of 
them to the right wife. 

By wife Rebecca — 

16. Rebecca, bapt. in Fairfield 30 Aug. 1702 ; m. William Stevens. 

17. Samuel, bapt. in Fairfield 19 March 1703-4 ; by 1746 he had removed to Greenwich, 

18. Daniel, bapt. in Fairfield 29 June 1707, removed to Redding. 

19. . . rah (a dau.), bapt. in Fairfield — June 1711. 

By wife Sarah — 

20. Elizabeth, bapt. in Fairfield — June 1717 ; m. John Mallory in April 1735, on the 10th 
of the month, according to the Redding record, or the 15th, if we follow that of Fairfield. For 
their descendants see Todd's ' History of Redding,' where her husband's name is called Jonathan. 

21. Abraham (of whom below). 

21. Abraham Adams may have been b. either in Fairfield or Redding. From the date of 
his marriage we should suppose he was b. early enough to have been bapt. in Fairfield, where 
his brothers and sisters were bapt. from 1702 to 1717, but as his name does not appear there we 
may infer he was b. about 1718, and perhaps after the family had removed to Redding. The 
Fairfield land record (viii., 8) shews a grant of land in Redding from his father to him. He 
m, Elizabeth Williams 9 May 1740. She was probably dau. of Thomas Williams of Redding, 
whose wife Esther renewed the covenant in Fairfield 25 April 1703, and who had a dau. Eliza- 
beth, b. 31 Aug. 1719, and bapt. 6 Sept. 1719. Family tradition says she m. a Fillow after 
Abraham Adams' death. I take her to be the Elizabeth .... who. about 1765-6, m. Nathan 
Fillow. This Elizabeth Fillow d. 20 March 1781, and was buried in Norwalk. Her husband, 
Fillow, removed to Dover, N.Y., about 1782, with all his children, and remarried. Nathan and 
Elizabeth Fillow had — i., Azor, b. 1767 ; ii., Adams ; iii., Joseph ; iv., Nathan ; v., Samuel ; 
vi., Hannah ; vii., Asahel. 

A reasonable family tradition says Abraham Adams d. in the army during the French and 
Indian War 1754-60. His children, from two of whom Mrs. Upton descended, seem to have 
been — 

22. Joseph, b. c. 1740. (See below.) 

23. Ann, m. Samuel Jacquish (? Jaques) of Harpersfield, N.Y., and had issue. 

a a 


24. Abraham, of Redding, m. and had issne. 

25. Abel, of Bovina, N.Y., m. and bad issue. 

26. Huldab or Azubab. I think her name was Huldah, that she was b. 1750, m. Zachariah 
Ferris of Zoar in Newtown, Conn., 5 April 1768, and d. there 13 Nov. 1S33. But see ' N.E. Hist, 
and G-eneal . Register,' xli.. 90. 

27. Elizabeth ; she is said to have m. a son of her stepfather Fillow, but the latter does not 
appear to have had any son not otherwise disposed of in marriage. 

28. Lydia (? name uncertain). 

29. Benjamin, b. c. 1755. (See below.) 

30. Asel, said to have belonged to Washington's life-guard. 

22. Joseph Adams, b. in Redding, probably near the end of 1710 ; m., 9 Sept. 1761, Joanna 
Disbi-ow. (See Disbrow, below.) He and his wife are said to have been living in 1829. Their 
children, doubtless all b. in Redding, were : 

31. Stephen, b. 1762 ; d. y. in the army. 

32. Hezekiah, b. 1761. lived in Redding ; m. and had issue. 

33. Eleanor, b. 1765. 

31. Abigail, b. 1767 or 8 ; m Taylor, and had issue. 

35. Joseph, b. 1770, settled at Stanford. N.Y. 1797 ; m. and had issue. 

36. Israel, b. 1772 or 3 ; m. Abigail, dau. of Robert and Anne (Darrow) Stowe, and had 

37. Aaron, b. 1774 ; m. and had issue. 

38. Nathan, b. 27 Jan. 1778. (See below.) 

29. Benjamin Adams, brother of tbe preceding, was b. in Redding probably about 1755. He 
is said to have resided in Norwalk. but as early as 1789 removed to N.Y. State, perhaps to 
Delaware Co., and thence to Adams Settlement near Danby, Tompkins Co. He may have been of 
Goshen, Conn., 1783, and of Stanford, N.Y., 1799. He m. CJiloe Hatch, who, I suppose, was motber 
of all his children. Late in life he m., probably at Adams Settlement, a widow Morgan. I am 
uncertain as to the number and names of his children and the order of their births. He had : 

39. Seymour, one of the founders of Adams Settlement, Tompkins Co., N.Y., m. and had 

40. Philena, b. 6 Sept. 1783 at Goshen, Conn. ; m. in Stanford, N.Y., 22 Nov. 1799, Abraham 
Johnson Whitney. 

41. Amanda, m Wadhams of Goshen, Conn., and had issue. 

42. Lucinda, m. her cousin Nathan Adams. (No. 38, below, q.v. for issue.) 

43. John, of Adams Settlement, m Morgan, a dau. of his stepmother. 

44. Reuben. 

45. Dosha, m Wadhams of Goshen, Conn., and had issue. 

38. Nathan Adams, b. in Redding. Conn., 27 Jan. 1778. In 1805 he went to Tompkins 
Go., N.Y., where he was one of the founders of Adams Settlement. He was a freemason of rank, 
a man of genial disposition and generous qualities. He was a talented musician, and such a 
master of the violin that, though of course an amateur, he played with Ole Bull in N.Y. City. 
Many of his descendants inherit great musical ability. He d. 10 Nov. 1863. His wife was his 
cousin Lucinda Adams (No. 42, above). They had : 

46. Harry, b. in Redding about 1799, lived in Adams Settlement ; m. his cousin Lucinda 
Wadhams, dau. of Amanda Adams (No. 41, above), and had issue. 

47. Amanda, b. 28 March 1801. (See below.) 

48. Horace, m. Sally Canfield. They lived at Spencer, N.Y., and in Wisconsin. 

49. Louisa, m. Wakeman Lyon, and had issue. He afterwards m. her sister. 

50. Lucinda, m. William Lyons of Detroit, Mich., and had issue. 

51. William, m. Louise Hugg, and had one son. 

42. Emoline, m., first, .... Patchin ; m., secondly, about 1878, Wakeman Lyon. 


53. Mary, m Slocum of Wisconsin. 

54. Nathan, m. and had issue. 

47. Amanda Adams was b. in Redding, Conn., 28 March 1801. She was taken by her 
parents to Adams Settlement when a child, and there, as has been stated before, in Feb. 1817, 
m. Joseph Hollister, by whom she had issue. (See Hollistee, above.) After the death of her 
husband, whom she survived more than thirty-three years, she resided most of the time with 
her dau. Mrs. Terry, and her son Noel B. Hollister, Esq., at whose residence, near Henry ville, 
Ind., she d. in March 1884. She was a woman of exceptional qualities of mind and heart, long 
to be remembered and revered. 


Two brothers of this name, Robert and William, of the latter of whom but little is known, 
were early settlers in New Haven. 

Robeet Meekee, m. Svsan Tulerjield or Turberfield at New Haven in 1651, and before 1670 
settled in Fairfield. His wife was probably dau. of Henry Turberfield, who was at Weymouth 
in 1673. His dau.— 

Maey Meekee, m., as before stated, 15 July 1677, Samuel Adams, and had issue. (See 
Adams, above.) 


1. Benjamin Tueney of Concord, was there at least as early as 1640. He was admitted 
freeman 2 June 1641, and in 1644 or 1645 removed to Fairfield, Conn., where he d. in 1648, his 
inventory being presented 6 June of that year. His widow Mary, who was probably mother of 
all his children, m. Joseph Middlebrook, whom she bore two children, Joseph and Phebe. I 
suppose Joan Turney, the alleged first wife of the first John Bouton of Norwalk (see Bouton, 
Note 5, above), was his sister. His children, of whom Benjamin was b. in Fairfield, the others 
in Concord or Eng., were : 

2. Mary, aged 17, 1648 ; m. Nathaniel Seely. 

3. Robert, aged 15, 1648. He is the Robert Turney mentioned in 1666 as a relative of Ruth 
Bouton. (See 3 under Bouton, Note 5, above.) He m. and had issue. 

4. Judith, aged 13, 1648 ; m 

5. Ann, aged 11, 1648 ; m 

6. Rebecca, b. 16 Feb. 1640 in Concord ; m. Stephen Sherwood. 

7. Sarah, b. 11 Dec. 1741 ; m 

8. Ruth, b. 28 Jan. 1644 ; is known to have married. I suppose her to have been wife of the 
first Richard Bouton of Fairfield, and mother of the above named Ruth Bouton. (See 1 under 
Bouton, Note 5, above.) 

9. Benjamin, b. 1645. (See below.) 

9. Benjamin Tueney was b. in Fairfield, probably in 1645, as he was called three years of 
age in June 1648. He d. probably in 1694, as his inventory was presented in Nov. of that year, 
leaving a widow Bebecca and children as follows : 

10. Benjamin, aged 22, 1694. 

11. Robert, aged 20, 1694. 

12. Rebecca, aged 18, 1694. She may have been the Rebecca first wife of Daniel Adams, 
who m. her sister, but, if so, she was three years older than her husband. 

13. Thomas, twin, aged 15, 1694. 

14. Sarah, twin, aged 15, 1694. (See below.) 

15. Jemima, aged 8, 1694. 

16. Jonathan, aged 4, 1694. 

14. Saeah Tueney, b. in Fairfield in 1679, became second wife of Daniel Adams sometime 
before 2 April 1715, and had issue. (See Adams, above.) 


Disbrow, Disbrough, Disborow, or Desborough. 

James Desborough, Lord of the manor of Elltisley, Cambridgeshire, father of Major 
General John Desborow who m. Oliver Cromwell's sister, sent at least one and probably two or 
more sons to the New World. The gentleman known to have been his son was in New Haven 
in 1639, and G-uilford 1641, but returned to Eng. in 1650, and became a General, an M.P., and 
finally Chancellor. At Rye, in the New Haven jurisdiction, appeared Peter Disbrow (as the 
name was usually written) in 1660, as one of the purchasers of Rye from the Indians. He, who 
was called fifty years of age in 1681, was young for the office, when, in 1665, lie was a 
Representative in the General Court. He m. Sarah, dau. of Nicholas Knapp of Stamford. John 
Disbrow of Rye, 1683. and Thomas Disbrow of Fairfield (who had a wife Mercy, and d. in 1707, 
leaving a son Thomas, apparently then of age) may have been sons of Peter. Probably from 
one of these descended — 

Nathan Disbrough of Fairfield, now Greensfarms, Conn. He, by his wife Neight, had 
thirteen children, viz. : 

1. Johanna Disbrow, b. 16 Jan. 1739 ; m., as before stated, Joseph Adams, 9 Sept. 1761, and 
had issue. (See Adams, above.) 

2, Nathan ; 3, Patti ; 4, Abigail ; 5, Ruth ; 6, Sarah ; 7, Peter ; 8, Neight ; 9, Susannah ; 
10, Andrew ; 11, Jacob ; 12, Lydia ; 13, Soloman. 

(7) Ancestry of Marietta Bryan, wife of Hon. William W. Upton. (Page 148.) 

Three brothers of this name are said to have come from Ireland in the eighteenth century, 
viz. : 

1. Lewis, b. 1732 (of whom below). 

2. Samuel, of Saratoga, N.Y. 

3. David or John, settled in Conn. 

1. Lewis Bryan, said to have been b. in Ireland in 1732, settled in the State of N.Y., and 
d. in 1816, leaving, by his wife Esther, who d. July 1818, aged 91 years 10 months, children as 
follows .- 

4. Seth, m. Sarah Milch, and had issue. 

5. Reuben, of Casanovia and Geneseo, N.Y., m. and had issue. 

6. Richard, b. 1771. (See below.) 

7. Lewis, b. April or May 1774 ; m. Helen . . . ,, who d. 25 June 1848, aged 69, and had issue.

Conn. Hed. 4 Sept. 1848, and she d. 14 Oct. 1861, aged 90. They had : 

12. Sarah, m. Gilbert Allen of Granville, N.Y., and d. 15 Dec. 1856, aged 63. 

13. Amasa, b. 1794. (See below.)

18. Pauline, m. Dr Wolf. 

13. Amasa Bryan, b. at Schaghticoke, N.Y., in 1794, settled ultimately in East Avon, N.Y., 
where he became a man of property and influence, highly respected for his sound judgment, 
generous hospitality, and strict integrity. He m., first, Eliza Ann Williams ; secondly, Alida 
Ann, dau. of Benjamin and Lavinia Ann (German) Ketcham of Schaghticoke and Farmington, 
N.Y. Dying 9 May 1876, he left issue by each marriage. A dau., by the second wife, was — 


19. Maeietta Bbyan, b. at Schaghticoke. She m. at East Avon, N.Y., 29 March 186u, «„ 
stated in the pedigree, Hon. William W. Upton, with whom she now lives in Washington, D.C. 

(8) Ancestry of Georgia L. Bradley, wife of William Henry Upton, Esq. (Page 148.) 


This surname, indigenous in England with the meaning Broad Lea, occurs even back to 
Saxon times, and abounds in Domesday. Several gentlemen of the name were among the early 
emigrants to Mass., R.I., and Conn. Whether descended from one of these, or himself an 
emigrant of later date, the first to whom we trace the family now under consideration was — 

1. George Bradley of Tolland, Conn. Tradition says he was a physician from Sheffield, 
Eng., b. 1(390. His name does not appear among the inhabitants of Tolland when that town was 
incorporated in 1715, and perhaps maidenly charms drew him thither from some neighbouring 
town ; for we find he there m. Hannah Brown 7 May 1717. (See Brown, below.) He (or his 
son George*) seems to have m. a wife Mercy .... between 1747 and 1750. His children, all 
b. in Tolland, were : 

By wife Hannah — 

2. George, b. 18 July 1718. 

3. Hannah, b. 8 Dec. 1719 ; m. 1743 Robert Styles. 

4. Mary, b. 11 April 1721 ; m. at Windham, 17 April 1751, Isaac Styles, bro. of Robert Styles 
above, and had issue. 

5. Jane, b. 6 Feb. 1723. 

6. Jabez, b. 8 Feb. 1727-8. (See below.) 

7. Henry, b. 3 May 1729 ; m. Silence .... and had issue. 

8. Josiah, b. 12 May 1730. 

9. Jonah, b. 5 March 1733 ; d. 16 March 1746. 

10. George (again), b. 31 Oct. 1742. 

11. Elijah, b. 15 Sept. 1744. 

12. Jonah (again), b. 27 July 1747. 

By wife Mercy — 

13. Mercy, b. 30 June 1750. 

14. Tryphena, b. 16 Oct. 1752. 

15. Sarah, b. 22 March 1755. 

16. Eunice, b. 20 Dec. 1757. 

6. Jabez Bradley of Tolland, b. there 8 Feb. 1727-8 ; m. Hannah King 15 Dec. 1749. Their 
children, all b. in Tolland, were : 

17. Jabez, b. 31 May 1751. (See below.) 

18. Hannah, b. 3 Feb. 1753. 

19. Ruth, b. 25 May 1755. 

20. Susanna, b. 25 Sept. 1757. 

21. Elizabeth, died 18 Aug. 1833. 

17. Capt. Jabez Bradley of Tolland, b. there 31 May 1751 ; m. Hannah Lathrop 7 Feb. 
1770-1, and d. 11 Sept. 1825. Their children, all b. in Tolland, were : 

22. William, b. 10 April 1771 ; m. Polly Hyde 8 Sept. 1796, and had issue. 

23. Samuel, b. 2 Oct. 1773. (See below.) 

24. Roswell, b. 28 April 1775. 

25. Chloe, b. 19 May 1777. 

26. David, b. 20 Dec. 1779. 

* Mercy Bradley's husband might well have been the son George Bradley b. 1718, but for the 
probability that the latter died young, as is indicated by the fact that his parents gave his name 
to another of their sons in 1742. The latter George was of course too young to have been 
Mercy's husband. 


27. Roxey, b. 15 Jan. 1783 ; d. 3 June 1783. 

28. Roxey (again), b. 9 March 1784. 

29. Elizabeth, b. 10 Jan. 1786. 

30. Jabez, b. 30 April 1788. 

31. Chester, b. 5 April 1792 ; m. Susanna Sessions 27 Nov. 1817, had issue, and d. 5 Dec. 1823. 

23. Samuel Bkadley was b. in Tolland 2 Oct. 1773, and there m. Abigail Carpenter 10 June 
1798. An old and important Carpenter family has long flourished in that part of Conn., but 
tradition says Mrs. Bradley was a native of Eng., and came from London. He removed to Erie 
Co., N.Y., and owned a woollen mill at Springville in that county. His removal was after 1816, 
and his family place the date as late as 1821. The birthof no child of his was recorded in 
Tolland after 1810. He was killed by an accident in his factory about 1833. His children 
were : 

32. Rosina, b. 28 May 1799 in Tolland ; m Reynolds, a sea captain, and had issue. 

33. Almena, b. 1 May 1802 ; m. Silas Rushmore, and had issue. 

34. Eliza, b. 10 April 1807 in Tolland ;' d. there 9 Aug. 1807.

38. Samuel William Beadley was b. in Tolland, Conn., in 1815 or 1816, and was taken 
by his parents to Springville, Erie Co., N.Y., when a young child. He lived there until at 
the age of 17 he was thrown upon his own resources by the death of his father. He then, on 
the advice of George Bradley of Dunkirk, went to Olean, Cattarangus Co., N.Y,, which was his 
home the rest of his life. He united sterling integrity and great kindliness with fine ability 
and remarkable energy. By wise investments he accumulated a large fortune, which was, how- 
ever, greatly imperiled and diminished by the course of certain business associates in his latter 
years. Over-tasking himself in herculean efforts to retrieve these disasters, he d. suddenly 
23 Nov. 1868, leaving his widow and children in comfortable circumstances. He m. Aditha 
Diana Barr, b. 22 Feb. 1820, dau. of an eminent architect from Glasgow, Scotland, by his wife 
a Miss Pond. After her husband's death she removed to Washington, DC, where she d. 
23 Sept. 1886. Their children were : 

40. Almena, m., first, Rev. Anthony D. Axtell ; secondly, Samuel P. Williams, Jr. ; thirdly, 
Francke S. Williams, A.M., LL.B. The latter was graduated at Yale College in 1869, and was, 
at the time of his death 22 Sept. 1882, Chief Examiner in the U.S. Patent Office. His widow 
and her only child, a dau. Almena, by her second marriage, reside in Washington, D.C. 

41. Sylvia, m. George Bradley, and d. three months later. 

42. Samuel Henry, m. Kate Eaton, and has issue. He is an influential citizen of Olean, 
N.Y., and has been a member of the State Legislature.

has issue. 


Peter Brown of Windsor, Conn., m. 15 July 1658 Mary Gillett. She was b. before 1636, and 
was dau. of Jonathan Gillett, who settled in Dorchester, was made freeman 6 May 1635, 
removed to Windsor 1636, and d. 1677. Peter Brown d. 9 March 1692, leaving, besides other 
children, a son — 

John Brown of Windsor, b. 8 Jan. 1668-9. He m. Elizabeth Loomis (see Loomis, below), 
and had a dau. — 

Hannah Brown, b. 24 Aug. 1697. She is supposed to have been the Hannah Brown who 
m. the first George Bradley. (See Bradley, above.) 



Joseph Loomis of Windsor, Conn., d. in 1658, having lost his wife in Aug. 1652. They came 
from Eng., probably in 1638, bringing a family with them, including a son — 

Deacon John Loomis of Windsor. He m., 3 or 6 Feb. 1649, Elizabeth Scott, dau. and coheir 
of Thomas Scott of Hartford, an early settler, who was accidentally killed 6 Nov. 1643, leaving 
a widow Ann, who m. Thomas Ford, and d. in Northampton 5 May 1675. Deacon Loomis was 
several years a Kepresentative. He d. 2 Sept. 1688. His eldest son — 

John Loomis of Windsor was b. 9 Nov. 1649. In 1696 he m. a second wife, Sarah, widow 
of Isaac Warner. By a former wife he had a dau. — 

Elizabeth Loomis, b. 31 Dec. 1677. She is supposed to have been the lady of that name 
who m. John Brown. (See Bbown. above.) 




Supplemental to "The Upton Memorial."* 

The present tense, when used in the following pages, usually refers to the year 1888. 

The mark + prefixed to a name indicates that a further notice of the person will be found under 
the next generation. 

Each person is distinguished by certain " Individual Letters," preceding his name, according 
to the system fully explained in Note 1, page 149. 

A child's " Individual Letters " are obtained by affixing one letter to his father's "Letters." 
Hence, to find the children of any person, look under the next generation for persons bearing the 
same letters as his, followed by one other letter. To find any person's father, omit the last of the 
letters by which the person is distinguished, and then look under the preceding generation for the 
person bearing the letters remaining. Thus 1 a e is the father, and 1 a c b a is the son of 1 a c b. 


i a,— JOHN UPTON, the founder of the New England family of Uptons— one of 
the most distinguished and probably the most numerous of Upton families extant ; a 
family whose representatives are now to be found in every continent and in nearly 

* The reader will please bear in mind that, as explained in the Preface, the author has not 
undertaken to print a history of this family, but only to supplement that found in Vinton's 
" Memorial." Consequently, where full information may be found in that volume, I have condensed 
my narrative proportionately. While it has been deemed best to mention in the following pages 
every known descendant, in the male line, of the emigrant, I have, except in the cases of the first 
two generations and persons now living, usually been content to give no other biographical details 
than the person's place of residence, the years of his birth, marriage and death, his public services, 
and the names of his wife and children. Where I have obtained a date or other information 
unknown to Mr. Vinton, I have printed it in full. Where I have discovered an error in his work, 
I have substituted the correct statement, without comment except in doubtful cases. 

Having taken Mr. Vinton's work as the basis of mine, I must not be supposed to assert the 
correctness of all dates which appear alike in the " Memorial " and in these pages. Where I have 
ventured to differ from the "Memorial," the reader may rest assured I have done so only upon 
apparently ample evidence, and after the most careful investigation and consideration. 

No attempt has been made to carry the female lines beyond the marriages of daughters' 


every important country on the globe — may have been born either just before or just 
after the year 1620. The early dates at which we find him making a -contract (1639), 
and holding the responsible position of constable (1645), seem topoint to an earlier 
nativity, while tradition and the fact that he lived till 1699 perhaps as strongly 
indicate a later one. 

The truthfulness of the tradition which identifies him with that John Upton 
third son of William and Amye (Loves) Upton of Puslinch, who was baptized at 
Newton Ferrers, Devonshire, 6 May 1625,* I neither affirm nor deny, although 
at present I should be disposed to look to another part of England for his birth- 
place, f No evidence to support that tradition is known to exist ; but, on the other 
hand, the most careful search has failed to disclose, in parish registers or elsewhere, 
anything tending to shew that the Devonshire youth remained in England. 

I consider it not improbable that John Upton was the passenger who embarked 
at London in the "Primrose" July 27, 1635, and whose name appears as "Jo. 

* See pages 60 and 108, ante. 

t Why did John Askew (of whom we shall have occasion to speak further presently) — a poor 
young man staggering under his own financial burdens — consent to become Upton's surety for 
£15, a sum, then, perhaps equal in purcbasing power and representing as many days' labour as 
$750 might now ? Surely we may dismiss as the empty rhetoric of an equity pleading his (or 
rather Lechford's) statement that he was coerced to do so. Had, then, the two young men become 
so strongly attached, during their few months together under a hard master? Or was there some 
tie of boyhood association, of consanguinity, or family connection between them ? The Askews 
(Ayscoughs, Ayscoghes) were numerous in Lincolnshire and the adjoining counties, and there, 
too, Uptons abounded, both gentlemen and reputed yeomen, some of them, at least, ready, on 
account of loss of estates or a " great charge of children," to spare an adventurous son willing to 
seek his fortunes in the new world. 

John Askew apparently came from near Yarmouth, Norfolk, which is within ten miles of a 
parish called Upton, and less than a hundred from the home of Valentine Upton of Northolme, 
Lincoln, whose widow had, between 1598 and 1617, married an Ayscough. 

It seems superfluous for me to say I am convinced the emigrant was an Englishman, and that 
the alleged tradition of his Scotch nativity, a fly embalmed in the liquid amber of the " Memorial," 
is an old wives' tale, the invention of some one who " loved Scotland better than the truth." If 
the first hundred and twenty pages of this volume have not convinced the reader that Upton is an 
English, any argument of mine would be futile. I have, after no small search, failed to learn 
that any Upton family ever lived in Scotland in any age. That John Upton was ever called a 
Scotchman in his own day, except in one solitary instance, I have seen no proof ; but if he were, I 
think that may be explained by a circumstance which I deem readily capable of proof, although I 
have never seen it mentioned in print, namely, that owing to the many hundred Scotch prisoners 
sent to this country during and shortly after the civil war, and sold into bondage, our New England 
ancestors gradually came to use the word " Scotchman " colloquially, as equivalent to " redemp- 
tioner," or to designate any white man, whether Scotch, Irish or English, who began his colonial 
life bound to service ; just as in our southern states, within our day, the word "nigger" was 
practically synonymous with " slave," notwithstanding the presence of many free blacks. Not as 
demonstrating this opinion, but as shewing how few of the Scotch prisoners survived their mis- 
fortunes, the following quotation from a letter of Gov. Simon Bradstreet to the Lords of the Privy 
Council, dated 18 May 1680, is of interest : 

"There may be within our Government about 100 or 120 [negro slaves], and it may be 
as many Scots brought hither and sold for servants in the time of the war with Scotland, and most 
now married and living here, and about half so many Irish brought hither at several times as

The earliest certain mention of John Upton which has come down to us, we owe 
to the fact that when John Askew of Cambridge found himself in trouble, he had 
the good sense to employ a lawyer. From Askew's " Answere " to the suit of

by a clerk. It is well known that the ages assigned to passengers on these custom-house records 
are entirely untrustworthy — erroneous ages being frequently given or entered intentionally, for 
political and other reasons. The " Primrose," whose passengers had " taken the oaths of allegiance 
and supremacie," and had a certificate that they had been examined by the minister of Gravesend 
" touching their conformitie," (a mere form), bore on this voyage to " Virginea " (then a common 
designation for New England) a ship-load of young emigrants, 110 of her 124 male passengers 
being described as under 30 years of age, and 60 of them under 21. That her destination was 
New England I do not doubt ; for the names of a large proportion of her passengers are found upon 
the New England records shortly after 1635, many of them at or near Salem. Several of them 
bore Lincolnshire names, and, of these, one — Ellen Sutton, aged 20 — bore a surname not 
unconnected with the Uptons of that day, and a Christian name suggestive of the emigrant John 
Upton, from the fact that it and Eleanor, the name of his future wife, were at that time considered

man, was in New England in the employ, probably as an apprentice,* of Edward 
"Winslow of Salisbury, Mass., and know that he became his own master as early as 
the year 1639.f 

The next mention we have of him shews that the poor apprentice of 1639, within 
six years, became a public officer, and performed important! services for the 
Commonwealth. On the original account books of the Colonial Treasurer, Richard 
Russell, now in the possession of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, 
we find the four items following : 

The other papers in this interesting suit seem to have perished. Edward Winslow, the man 
whose name Savage erroneously thought must have been Wensley, was at this time a commissioner 
to decide small cases at Salisbury. He must not be confounded with his name-sake, the Governor 
of Plymouth, although Maverick's spiteful description of the latter — " a Smooth touugued Cunning 
fellow" — might have fitted the commissioner. 

Of John Askew, to whose memory I would gladly devote a grateful paragraph, I find no further 
trace in tbe New England records. 

* In the early history of New England three classes of persons, besides slaves, were held in 
service for terms of years, (1) prisoners of war sent over during the Great Rebellion and sold into 
temporary bondage, (2) persons who had voluntarily bound themselves for a short term of years 
in payment of their passage to America, and (3) ordinary apprentices. John Upton was in New 
England before the Civil War began, and his youth indicates that he was probably bound an 
apprentice during his minority, a custom so common in England at that day that we have already 
iu these pages (ante, pp. 44, 46) seen two instances of it in families of high position and consider, 
able wealth. 

A tradition, never very plausible and effectually disposed of by Lechford's note, has been 
printed to the effect that John Upton was sold : about 1640, to pay for his passage, and purchased 
by an English woman who afterwards married him. Another part of the tradition — that his wife 
was a landed proprietor before their marriage — will not seem incredible if it be ascertained that her 
name was Eleanor Tresler or Eleanor Phelps. A tract of land, east of what afterwards became 
John Upton's Woodhill Estate, and apparently adjoining it-^if, indeed, a part of it was not 
included in that estate as it was in later years — was sold in 1654 by Rev. Edward Norris to 
Eleanor Tresler or Trusler, the aged widow of both Henry Phelps and Thomas Trusler, and the 
mother of two or three daughters whose names are unknown. This land passed to the family of 
her son Henry Phelps, who was probably father of that John Phelps who witnessed John Upton's 
will, and uncle of Elinor Phelps who married William Chandler, and had a daughter Elinor. Of 
course, if one of Eleanor Trusler's daughters was named Eleanor, and if she married Upton, she 
may have brought him adjoining land. 

t Probably somewhat earlier than that ; it appears from the " Note Book " that Askew's 
Answer was prepared between 14 Eeb. and 11 March 1640-1, and, hence, that he had paid £15 in 
the summer of 1640, and £10 in 1639. It must have taken him, after the date of Upton's 
manumission, many months to earn this £10, which was, in those days, no small sum. We have 
seen that £15 to £25 was considered the value of thirty-nine months of a man's time. In Oct. 
1632 it had been ordered that " maister carpenters, sawers, masons, clapboard ryvers, brecklayers, 
tylars, joyners, mowers, &c, shall not take above 2s. per day," finding themselves, or 14d. a day, 
found ; and " the best sort of laborers " were to have 18d. finding themselves, or 8d. found. Ten 
pence per day was considered a fair price for board for mechanics, and in 1637 the practice of 
forcing people to pay 12d. per meal, instead of charging them for what they ate, was forbidden 
by law. 

X £15 would, even now, be a very large fee for a constable to earn ; but when we consider the 
relative \alue of money then and now, we must compare it with a modern fee of from three to ten 
times that size. We may be sure so large a sum was paid out of the general treasury for no 
ordinary service. 


"1645, 31st 1st mo. Narraganset Expedition £2 9 2 

Constable Upton £15 

1646, 20 th 5th mo. Narraganset Expedition 5 2 

John Upton's bill £1 

The services for which Constable Upton received these sums were probably con- 
nected with one of the numerous Indian alarms which, about that time, agitated the 
colony. Between the two dates mentioned — 12th, 6th month, 1645 — the General 
Court, fearing a rising on the part of the " salvages," ordered a certain part of .the 
militia in each of the towns to be ready at a half -hour's warning, and appointed the 
28th, 6th mo., 1645, a day of fasting and humiliation, " to humble o r soules before 
God for ye many sinns ye severall plantations & all ye Country stand guilty of, 
earnestly seeking a reconciliation w th him & his bless g on o T forces sent and going 
out, also for o r native countrays troubles." 

Of what town John Upton was constable and a resident at this time has not 
been ascertained ; but I suspect Lynn,* where he afterwards lived, as appears from 
a deed dated Dec. 26, 1658, in which he is described as "sometime of Hammer- 

While living at Hammersmith, John Upton acquired, probably, that skill in the 
use of tools which misled Savage as to his occupation, and in later life enabled him 
to obtain from his neighbours, as there is ample evidence that he did, three or four 
days' work upon his land in exchange for one day's labour on his part, putting in 
repair their arms and implements of husbandry.} 

Thus far, during his first twenty years in America, our knowledge of the 
emigrant has been sufficiently meagre ; but from his removal to Salem, about the 
year 1658, his name appears frequently upon the town records, and our knowledge 
of his career is reasonably full and exact. By the deed before mentioned, Henry 
Bullock of Salem conveyed to Upton forty acres of upland within the limits of 

* Many of the most important of the early records of Lynn, in which I should hope to find 
some mention of John Upton, as well as a record of his marriage and the births of his elder children, 
mysteriously disappeared during or soon after the compilation of Alonzo Lewis's ' History of 
Lynn,' which appeared in 1844. Mr. J. C. J. Brown of Boston recovered many of these scattered 
records which he found in private hands, but they perished in the " great fire " at Boston in 18/2. 

t Hammersmith was a name given, or sought to be given, to the Lynn Iron Works in 
remembrance of the village on the Thames whence many of the workmen came. Iron was dis- 
covered in Lynn in 1642. A company was organized, land bought of Thomas Hudson, and a forge 
built on the west side of the Saugus river just at the last fall of the stream, and there, about eight 
miles from Boston and within the present town of Saugus, sprang up the little village of Hammer- 
smith. Though the iron works were, in 1644, exempted from taxation, the company never 
flourished. As early as 1653 it was sued by creditors, and in 1671 its dam was cut and its business 
greatly reduced. 

X The reader has no true conception of the life of the founders of New England who fails to 
realize that, with exceptions few and unimportant, in the first generations every inhabitant — the 
gentry and even the clergy, as well as the yeotnen — engaged in manual labour. Nearly every 
man was, or sought to become, a farmer, and the necessities of the situation made very fair 
mechanics of many educated English gentlemen, who were, at the same time, leaders in the public 
and social life of the colony. That, in this regard, they differed very little from their ancestors 
among the English gentry, will be sufficiently apparent to the reader of Maddison's ' Lincolnshire 
Wills ' (First Series, lvii., lviii.) or any similar work. 


Salem, bounded north by land of Daniel Rumboll, and south by land of Thomas and 
George Gardner. To this he added the Eumboll tract, 80 acres, on the north, 
6 April 1662, and forty acres on the south east 27 Nov. 1671.* This, or rather 
one hundred and twenty acres of it, constituted " the farm in Salem commonly 
known as Wood Hill," which he devised to his sons William and Samuel. About 
half of it remained in the possession of the latter son's descendants until 1849. It 
is now (June 1888) owned by Rev. Willard Spalding, but the Upton house has been 
razed to the ground. f 

Sometime between 1672 and 1678 — probably not before 1675 — Mr. Upton 
removed into the town of Reading. As early as 166-1 he had begun to purchase land 
in that town, and to his first purchase of two hundred and seventy-seven acres there, 
he continued to add adjoining and neighbouring land as long as he lived. 

The estate upon wnich he settled in Reading, and which was his home the rest 
of his life — the " homestead " left in his will to his sons James and Joseph, and 
which long remained in the possession of the latter son's descendants — was in the 
north-east part of that portion of Reading which is now North Reading,^ and was 
about two and a half miles from Wood Hill. 

Opinions differ as to the exact site of his dwelling house. Vinton supposed it 
was where now stands a house occupied by Mrs. Sylvester F. Hayward. This house 
is situated near the Middleton and Peabody town line, a little off from Elm Street, 
and a short distance north of the rail-road track. It is next west of the farm of 

* A more detailed account of these deeds, and of most of those subsequently mentioned, will be 
found in the ' Upton Memorial.' 

f On the map of Salem village in 1692, prefixed to Upham's "Salem Witchcraft," the point 
designated as the probable site of the house of William and Samuel Upton is in fact the site of 
the old colonial cemetery where many Uptons lie buried. The house, occupied until 1849 by 
descendants of the emigant's son Samuel Upton, and which, there is no reason to doubt~ nearly 
marked the site of his own dwelling, was on the south side of Wood Hill, near the top, and about 
one-third of a mile from the forks in the Gardner Road. The Wood Hill estate was situated on 
or embraced at least part of a low hill anciently known as " the Wood Hill," but now called Upton 
Hill, in the westerly part of the present town of Peabody, near the Lynnfield and Middleton 
boundaries, the three towns coming together at a point not far from the farm. It is one mile 
south of the Ipswich river, about a mile west of Bald Hill, and not far from the paper mill in 
Middleton. Twenty acres added to the west half of it in 1741 brought it to the line of the present 
town of Lynnfield. It was in the south-west corner of a part of Salem which was long known as 
" the Village," " the Farms," or " Salem Village," and which was erected into a parish known as 
Salem Farms or Salem Village in Oct. 1672. Danvers, incorporated as a district Jan. 1752, and as 
a town June 1757, included the Middle Precinct or Third Parish of Salem. The Middle Precinct 
was established in 1710, called the South Parish after 1757, became the town of South Danvers in 
1855, and changed its name to Peabody in 1868. A large section of the north-west part of 
Peabody, including Wood Hill, was part of the original parish of Salem Village. A description of 
the bounds of the Wood Hill estate will be found in a foot-note under our account of the emigrant's 
son William Upton, p. 198. 

X Vinton styles the emigrant "of North Reading," and throughout the 'Memorial' follows 
the, as I think, objectionable practice of designating places by the names they now bear, instead 
of by those by which they were known at the time of the events narrated. I have endeavoured to 
use contemporaneous place-names, but have been, no doubt, often misled by the ' Memorial.' The 
part of Reading in which the emigrant lived was long known as the North Parish, and was 
incorporated as the town of North Reading in 1853. 


James Flint, and is about a mile and a half from the residence of Charles A. Upton, 
and about one mile south-east of Swan Pond. But it seems to me this could not 
have been the emigrant's homestead, for that descended in the family of his son 
Joseph, while the Hayward place was held, a century ago, by Hon. Benjamin 
Upton (1 a glib — No. 148 in the "Memorial"), a descendant of the emigrant's son 
Samuel. Moreover, Benjamin Upton probably acquired it by purchase, as he seems 
to have received no land by his father's will. (" Memorial," page 66.) 

A local tradition says the site of the emigrant's house is marked by an ancient 
cellar, traces of which still exist. This cellar is a little north of east of, and about 
one hundred and thirty rods from, the residence of Charles A. Upton (1 ag hbad), 
and nearly upon a line drawn from the north-east corner of North Reading to the 
point where the Salem and Lowell branch of the Boston and Maine rail-road crosses 
the line between North Reading and Lynnfield. It is one-fourth of a mile north 
of Elm Street, and a short mile south-west of the most southerly point of Swan 

I should suppose his homestead was much further north than either of these 
sites, and, in fact, in the very north-east corner of North Reading ; for in 1753 
it seems to have extended to the Andover line, and was bounded on the east by the 
Middleton line. (" Memorial," page 72.*) 

While still living in Salem, Mr. Upton had experiences in court, some of 
which must have been sufficiently distasteful to a man of his liberal views : " 26 : 
4th : mo: 1660" Hanna the wife of Nicholas Phelps (Quakers) was 'presented' to 
Salem Court — that is, indicted — " for saying that m r Higgissont sent abroade his 
woolves and his bloodhounds amongst the sheep and lambs : and that the priests 
are deceivers of the people." Mrs. Phelps long evaded arrest, but was finally 
caught and tried, apparently at the court begun at Salem, " the last third daye in 
June" 1661. Thomas Flint and John Upton having been subpoenaed as witnesses, 
we find among the court filed at Salem "The Deposission of Thomas Flint and John 
Vpton Testifieth y* Comming into Henery PhelpesJ his howse one a Sabboth Day 
Evining Spring was a twelvemonth Wee hard Hanna Phelpes the wife of Nickolas

The conclusion of the court was : " proved. Sentence to be whipt or pay 5 lb : 
50 s prsent & 50 s when ye Court cales for it." The record adds, to the honour of 
William Flint, constable of Salem, " Will Flint promises to pay ye first 50 s ." 

* Of course the exact location of the Upton homestead could be determined from the colonial 
land records, but the reader is reminded that the writer is under the disadvantage of being three 
thousand miles from those records, and he has found no one, having access to the records, ready to 
solve this question for him. 

f Rev. John Higginson was at this time the minister at Salem. 

X Henry Phelps lived in Salem. He seems to have been step-son, not — as Savage thought — 
son-in-law of Thomas Tresler. 

§ Hillyard Veren was a Salem man, Register or Clerk of Probate, etc. 


July 7, 1662. " Tho : fflinfc & John Rubton is alowed for 6 daies attendance 
vpon the Court as witnesses about the case of complaynt ags* nicholas Phelps his 
wife ; each of them 9 3 ." 

This last entry calls attention to the singular fact, which has greatly perplexed 
Salem genealogists, that John Upton was by his contemporaries occasionally called 
Rubton, Ribton (or, as others read the record, Rebton) and Ripton.* 

It might, at first, be supposed that this was a matter of grave consequence, and 
that John Upton might in fact have sometimes borne another name. But, after a 
pretty thorough investigation and full consideration, I am quite satisfied that no such 
conclusion is tenable ; and that, in every instance where the alias is used, it may be 
accounted for by the fact that it was not used by an intimate acquaintance of 
Upton's ; by the fact that he was the only Upton in New England ; and by the fact that 
probably hundreds of his fellow colonists had never heard the name Upton, even in the 
mother country, and so were liable to misunderstand it or confuse it with some name 
with which they were more familiar.f Nor should it be forgotten that the founders 
of New England spoke their words, not with the clearness which characterizes the 
speech of the modern Yankee, but with that indistinct, albeit rich and pleasing, 
enunciation which distinguishes the true-born Englishman to the present day.| 

* The following instances have come to my knowledge : — 

7 July 1662. In the trial of Hannah Phelps he was called John Upton several times, and 
John Rubton once. 

28 April, 1665. In connection with his own trial — Henry Spencer, a stranger, and Thomas 
Johnson, an Andover man, were understood by the Clerk to call him John Ripton. 

26-4-1665. Said Johnson and Thomas Chaundler (who, however, quotes from said Spencer), in 
their affidavits call him John Ripton. 

27-4-1665. In an affidavit by said Spencer he was five times called John Ripton, and in the 
court record of the trial he is first styled John Upton alias Ribton, and then twice called John Upton. 

20 Feb. 1671. J. Bobbins of Topsfield conveyed to John Porter of Salem seventy acres more 
or less " bounded on one side by lands of Sam Gardner, on another with land of R. Hollingworth 
& on the other side by land of John Rubton." 

It will be noted that in each of the above instances we find the alias in a paper written by some 
one who lived at a distance from Upton's home, and, usually, taking down the words of some one 
who had met Upton only once or twice or not at all. 

It remains to add that the name "John Ripton, a Scotchman," a householder in 1665, appears 
on a modern list of early inhabitants of Essex and old Norfolk counties (N.E. H. and G. Eegister, 
viii., 49), and that Josiah Upton (1 ale ddb) of Charlemont, born 1759, is known to have stated 
that in early days " the name Upton was called Ripton." But I do not doubt the information, in 
both these instances, was derived from the affidavits quoted in the text and referred to above. 

Compare, also, the " Ruffen formerly Upton " of Rephara, page 88, ante. 

f The surname Repton is still of occasional occurrence in England. 

X The writer's last doubt on this point disappeared one day when he heard himself addressed by 
a stranger as " Meesterrebton." 

John Upton's alias, coupled with the fact that Sir Nicholas Upton, the Knight of St. John of 
Jerusalem (ante, page 54, note l|), is called, in ' Notes and Queries ' (1st S., viii., 190), " Chevalier 
Repton," led me, at one time, to suppose there might be some connection between the two men. 
But after careful investigation I am convinced the coincidence was purely accidental. Nicholas 
Upton, it is true, held an office called " Commander of Repton " or Ripston, but he was never, 
except in the article referred to, and there only through error, called Chevalier Repton. He was 
called Sir Nicholas or Chevalier Upton or Commander of Repton. On the other hand there is not 
yet the slightest evidence that John Upton ever called himself, or was ever called by any one who 
knew him well, Ripton, or anything but Upton. 


In 1665 John Upton was himself arrested. One Henry Spencer had been 
apprehended at Andover as a vagrant, run-away or thief.* The rest of the story may 
be told chiefly in the words of the Essex Court records and files : 

" Henry Spencer did acknowledge that he left his pack with one John Ripton a 
Scotchman f neare to his house for him to take care of for him, wherein was a coate a 
rapier & belt a bible a peece of searge a pewter bottle a payre of breeches a band & 
paire of shoes. 

" This he sayd in court held at Ipswich the 28 of Aprill 1665. 

Robert LordJ cleric." 

" The depoisition of Thomas Johnson constable of Andover who saith that Henry 
Spencer coming to the house of John Ripton the sayd Ripton tould this deponant 
that he brought a pack with him to his house of which was a coate a rapier & two 
bybles a payre of french fall shoes & other things and lay at his house one night & 
the next day he sett him on the way to Andover & caried his things from his house 
with him & further this deponant saith that Ed: Hutchingson§ told me that he 
came to his house the same day without a pack alsoe I saw him in the afternoone 
the same day without any pack. 

" Taken vpon oath in court held at Ipswich the 28 of Aprill 1665.

Upon this evidence we next find — 

" John Vpton indited for being an abetter or ayder to one Henry Spencer arun- 
awaye & concealing cloathes stolen by s d Spencer." 

The following warrant then issued —

Mr. Upton having been arrested and bound over, the authorities began, with 
surprising eagerness, to collect affidavits against him, with the following success : 

" The Deposition of Thomas Jonsonf aged about 30. This Deponant sayth that

(for I have not seen the original) I infer that Miss Bailey thinks John Upton was for a time an 
inhabitant of Andover. But I have seen nothing to lead me to that conclusion. 

j In a former note at page 185. I have already expressed my opinion of the theory of a Scotch 
origin for John Upton — a theory based solely, so far as I know, upon the hearsay testimony of 
this precious affidavit, and that of Thomas Chaundler printed on a following page.

including one of a Lincolnshire family, whose daughter Elizabeth married an Edward Winslow.

Salem known as " the Village." The name is now usually Hawthorne.

These affidavits, some of which, it will be noticed, the prosecution procured on 
the very day of trial, having been obtained, John Upton was brought into Court. 
The record proceeds : 

"27 : 4 : 1665. John Vpton Alios Ribton being bound over, in twenty 
pounds bond, by y e worshipful maj 1 ' william Hathorne, to appeere at the next Court 
held at Salem, to answer to acomplaynt made against him for being an abetter 
or ayder to one Henry Spencer, a runnawaye, & concealing of stolen cloathes, the 
said Vpton appearing, & being willing to be tryed by a Jury. 

" The inditement with what other evedence in the case p'duced was read and 
comitted to the Jury, whoe brought in their verdict viz : they found not the said 
Vpton Guilty : The Court accepts not this verdict." § 

So ended the case ; for the record discloses no more, and the authorities, though 
no doubt irritated, as the last sentence shews, at the result of making a mountain 
of a mole hill, probably found no way to escape the effect of an Anglo-Saxon petit 
jury's verdict of acquittal. 

25 : 4 : 1672, we find Mr. Upton accepted with Richard Hutton as sureties for 
the payment of a fine which had been imposed upon Joseph Armitage, an inn keeper 
of Lynn. 

11 : 4 : 1675. " John Putnam, Henry Keny & John Buxton in be halfe of the 
committe of Salem farmers " sued John Vpton, in an action of debt, for £2 — 9 s — 3 d 
assessed against him for building the new meeting house in 1672. Mr. Upton 
defended the action, and the verdict, 20 : 5 : 1675, was in his favour. 

After this date, which was probably just before his removal to Reading, we find no 
record that any further trouble befell the emigrant. He continued to grow in respect, 
wealth, and influence, adding farm to farm, and advancing by easy stages towards 

* I am not certain that I have read this name correctly, nor do I know who the man was. 

j Upon the back of this document is written this curious endorsement : " For and consider- 
ing Robert Earle of Leicester." What does it mean 1 Could there have been any connection 
between the Earl of Leicester and Henry Spencer .' At this time, the Earl of Leicester was that 
Robert Sidney whose daughter Dorothy (the poet Waller's " Sacharissa '") married, for her first 
husband, Henry Spencer, third Baron Spencer of Wormleighton, and first Earl of Sunderland, 
a gallant soldier who was killed in the royal army at Newbury in 1643.. Was there some 
mysterious connection between these two Henry Spencers which led some one, high in authority 
in the colony, to interfere in the case of the seeming vagrant, and place this endorsement on 
the papers ? 

\ James Hay or Hey was an early settler in Reading. This testimony of his was probably 
given in open court at Upton's trial, June 27th. But if it is correctly dated, it was not given 
until two days later, and was probably in some further proceeding relating to Henry Spencer.

a green and honoured old age. He was admitted freeman 11 April 1691,* made his 
willf 16 Nov. 1697, and died 11 July 1699, aged, I suppose, nearly four-score years. 
A general view of the emigrant's life shews a vigorous, active, self-reliant man, 
self-respecting and self-contained, steadily and successfully pursuing the purpose 
which brought him to the new world, asking little of the clerical oligarchy which 
dominated the affairs of the colony, and apparently having little sympathy with 
their theological tenets. Whether induced by the knowledge that his immediate 
ancestors had moved in the humbler walks of life, or conscious of a descent which 
entitled him to take precedence of many of his neighbours who affected great self- 
importance, he quietly but steadily veiled his quality, never once in any known 
deed describing himself either as " gentleman " or as " yeoman," but even in his 
will adopting the non-committing description of " husbandman." Yet all the time 
he was steadfast to the purpose, which seems to have been the ruling passion^ of his 
life, of establishing his posterity upon a secure foundation as landed proprietors. In 
twenty-nine years we know of his making nineteen purchases of land, besides 
receiving a grant from the town.§ The inventory of his estate includes fourteen 
several tracts of land, four of which contained about 675 acres. 

* It has been assumed, too hastily, as I think, that he was a Presbyterian from the fact that 
he did not consent to make himself, in early life, eligible to become a freeman, that is a full 
citizen, by joining the church, and did not become a freeman until the elevation of William and 
Mary had weakened the authority of the clerical party which ruled New England. Waiving 
the question whether the fact that he was a constable does not indicate that he was a church- 
member in 1645, I would remind the reader that the more liberal new charter, which has been 
assumed to have prompted his course, did not arrive until 14 May 1692— a year after he became 
a freeman. As early as 1635 even a Presbyterian, if over sixteen years of age, was compelled to 
take the oath of fidelity. From 1649 those of the age of twenty-four, who had .taken the oath, 
could sit upon juries, and vote for select-men ; and in 1664 all disabilities had been removed. 

If he joined no local church, I should say that more probably indicated that he shared the 
religious and political views of the dominant party in England, to escape whom the Bay 
colonists had fled to the wilderness, if, indeed, he was not, like many men who leave the home- 
circle in early years, in youth indifferent to religious things, and in later years " sustained and 
soothed by an unfaltering trust " in God which, self-attained and based upon reason and 
experience, leads the possessor to value not the intervention of any human priesthood, and 
look with pity upon the petty strifes of. those narrower Christians who 

" have burnt each other, quite persuaded 
That all the Apostles would have done as they did." 

f See abstract No. 90, page 40, ante. The will is printed in full in the ' Memorial.' 
J Of the anecdotes relating to his eagerness to acquire land, one, not credible in all its 
particulars by any one familiar with early New England customs, comes to me from Mass. and 
Cal. from descendants not more nearly related than fifth cousins, saying that, in his eagerness 
to close a trade for the purchase from the Indians of a certain tract of land near Swan Pond, he 
then and there delivered them not only the pony he was riding, but also the leather (or. as a 
more picturesque variation has it, " red ") breeches from off his legs — his only pair — contenting 
himself for the time being with one of his wife's petty-coats. That be owned land on Swan 
Pond is true enough, but he purchased part of it at least from white men in 1686 and 1691. 

§ Mentioned in his will. From what town is not stated, but I suppose Reading is meant. 
In 1685 that town " voted that the inhabitants on the north side of Ipswich river in our town 
bounds, viz. John Upton sen., John Upton jun., &c, shall have those two pieces of land named 
the town land in Sadlers' neck so called and that piece of common la,nd that lyeth at the 
upper end of Mr. Bellingham's farm, and that belongs to the town." 


His evident purpose appears also in his will, in which he not only provided that 
his posterity should not dispose of his lands " with out it be to and among them," 
but divided his realty in a manner most likely to insure its descent within the 
family : To his son John, who had a wife and sons, he gave a life interest in an 
estate in Reading, with remainder to the second of said sons. His son James, 
unmarried and apparently an invalid, he connected with his son Joseph who was 
married, had a son, and was one of the most capable of the family, and to the two 
gave his principal seat in Reading, providing that it should go to Joseph upon 
James's decease without issue. His son Ezekiel, having a wife and children, received 
lands in Reading. And, finally, the sons William and Samuel, being unmarried, 
received a joint grant of the Wood Hill estate, and other lands in Salem. 

The record of his marriage has not been found, and I doubt not it was upon the 
lost Lynn records. His wife Eleanor* survived him. My opinion of the tradition 
that she was a Stewart, I have already expressed. f The tradition that she was a 
Scotchwoman is met by an equally positive one that she was English. The fact is, 
no more is known of her than her Christian name. I gladly preserve a tradition, 
alike creditable to her and consistent with her husband's known opposition to 
religious persecutions, that during the Witchcraft delusion of 1692, " Dame Eleanor 
Upton " denounced one of the Judges to his face. 

Their children]: — the first four born probably before they settled in Salem, and 
the last after they removed to Reading — were : 

* Several circumstances inclined me. at one time, to think Eleanor Upton was a second 
wife : the Salem record (ante, page 74), after mentioning three of John Upton's children 
without naming the mother, abruptly inserts a description of the fourth as " borne by Ellenor 
his wife." His will, though written in his extreme old age, contains a clause in hinderance of 
her re-marriage, and, after describing her as "mother" of four of his sons, changes its 
phraseology, and alludes to her as " my wife " when occasion arises to mention her in connection 
with his first-born son John. 

But the fact that the Salem record is speaking of the death of the first three children but the 
birth of the fourth ; the fact that Eleanor was his wife as early, at least, as 1663, and so must have 
been, at the date of the will, fully fifty years of age ; the fact that he named a daughter 
Eleanor before 1663 ; and the further fact that no tradition of a former marriage exists, 
probably fully justify us in considering Eleanor his only wife. 

f See Note 2, page 151, ante. Possibly the whole Stewart tradition owes its origin to the 
fact that one of his grandsons married a Steward. 

J A slender tradition, worthy of no weight, comes to me from Texas to the effect that they 
had also a son Caleb. 

The following is a copy of a record sent some time after 1862 to Mrs. Eliza J. (Flint) Stone 
(lahddbcf) by Deacon Joseph Eaton of North Reading, now deceased. While it may have 
been formed by a very careless combination of the Salem record (ante, page 74), and shrewd 
guesses, the fact that it omits part of that record, and mentions but ten children, makes it 
possible to believe it was taken from some record which has escaped other investigators. I copy 
it verbatim : —

after 1650, and married Sarah, daughter of George Thompson, 14 Dec. 1680. She

He succeeded his father in 1699, but held but a life estate in the land received 
by his father's will, the fee being in his son. He resided in Reading, in the north- 
eastern part of the present North Reading, upon a farm given him by his father in 
the latter's life time. He died in the summer of 1727. For his will, see abstract

dying without issue, and imposes on him alone of the sons no obligation to care for 
his mother. But that his imbecility was physical, not mental, is shewn by his 
ability to make a will, 1 May 1702. He probably died soon after that date, un- 

i a f. William Upton was born in Salem, probably at Wood Hill, 10 June 
1663. In the April preceding, his parents had lost by death a son and two 
daughters, all in a few weeks. They gave him the name of his deceased brother. 
He married Mary Maber 27 May 1701. She was bapt. in Salem Village 6 April 
1707 — the first known connection of an American Upton with any church. 

He and his brother Samuel together received, by their father's will, the Wood 
Hill estate and other lands in Salem. They lived near together, perhaps in the 
same house, nearly all their lives, and together purchased much land in Salem and 
Reading. They, however, divided the Wood Hill estate, William taking the west, 
and Samuel the east half. This was done, says Vinton, in 1708, but the deed of 
William and Mary Upton, though dated 6 April 1708, was not acknowledged until 
23 May 1732, nor recorded till 5 Sept. of the latter year.* 

He had perhaps provided farms for all his sons before he made his will (Abstract 
125, page 49), and on the day before that instrument was made he conveyed his half 
of Wood Hill to his son Paul. He died in 1739 or 1740, leaving, it is said, ten

i a g. Samuel Upton was born in Salem, probably at Wood Hill, in Oct. 1664 ; 
married Abigail Frost 14 Jan. 1702-3. She was baptized in Salem Village 3 Aug. 
1707, as his brother William's wife had been nearly four months earlier. As already 
stated, he and his brother William received the Wood Hill estate by their father's 
will, and lived there together most of their lives. When they divided this estate, 
Samuel received the east half ; and this he conveyed to his son Benjamin 26 March 
1740, soon after which date, it is supposed, he died. His children* were : 

a. + Samuel, b. June 30, 1704 ; m. Ruth Whipple.

removed to Reading, where he was Collector of Taxes 1741, Fence-viewer 1762, and Surveyor 
of Highways 1769. He owned a " share " of land in horse meadow, Haverhill, N.H. ; d. without 
issue Jan. 1788 ; widow d., aged 97, Nov. 16, 1818, says the Reading record, which Vinton 
thought should have read " 1808, aged 95."

i a h. Ann Upton must have been born soon after 1660, as, 4 April 1684, she 
became the second wife of Samuel Fraile of Salem. They had the courage and 
humanity to sign a petition in favour of John Proctor and wife, accused of witch- 
craft in 1692. Their children were : 

a. Hannah (Feaile), b. May 5, 16S5.

is stated that she lived in New Salem, Mass., and reared those two boys after the death of their 
father, her brother. As will be explained, when I come to treat of Timothy 1 afi, I do not 
believe he was her brother or father of the boys. 

A singular circumstance seems to demonstrate the wonderful persistency of William Upton's- 
personality, as well as to afford us a means of knowing how he looked. Two of his descendants 
in our day, Hon. Daniel Upton (1 affg ef), and the late Daniel Upton, Esq. (2 afaacc'), 
descended from two of his sons (as their "individual letters" shew), I am informed by the 
highest authority, were in appearance " as much alike as two peas." For three generations 
these gentlemen have had no ancestor in common ; and it is therefore evident that they must 
have derived their personal appearance from this William Upton, or from his wife, or from an 
ancestor of one of these. 

* Vinton, page 478, thinks "Sarah Upton, of adult age, baptized in Salem, Middle 
Precinct [now Peabodyj, May 26, 1728," may have been another daughter of his, born next after 
Abigail. But I think not. He had children baptized every two or three years, from 1 707 to 
1721, and would hardly have permitted a child to wait till she became an adult. May she not 
have been the daughter of his nephew John (7 aab)1 


i a j. Ezekiel Upton was bora in Salem " about ye middle of Sept. 1668 ;" 
married, 1st., Rebecca Preston 28 Dec. 1693 ; 2nd., Ruth, widow of James Hardy and 
daughter of ... . Marsh 23 Jan. 1711-12. His children were all by his first wife, 
who was daughter and co-heir of Thomas Preston by a daughter of that Rebecca 
Nurse who was a victim to the witchcraft delusion. Ezekiel Upton received by his 
father's will 120 acres in the east part of what is now North Reading, bounded on 
the north by Swan Pond, and other lands, and increased his possessions by purchase- 
The male line of his descendants became extinct upon the death of his son Ezekiel 
in 17-15, but the name is perpetuated through daughters of the latter who married 
Uptons, as well as through one of his own daughters. He had : 

a. Isabel, b. Jan. 21, 1695 ; in., Oct. 6, 1714, her cousin Ezekiel Upton (laae), q.v. for 

b. Amy, b. Feb. 9, 1697. '

i a k. Joseph Upton was born upon his father's estate at Wood Hill in Salem 
Village 9 April 1670, and married Abigail .... 12 Feb. 1691-2. While an infant 
he was taken by his parents to their homestead in Reading, and there he spent his 
life. Upon the death of his brother James he came into possession of all the lands 
left to these two brothers by their father's will, including the Reading homestead. 
He probably held considerably more land than either of his brothers. He was living 
Avhen his son Ebenezer's will was made in 1753. The foUowing is a list of his 
children, but I have some doubt as to Miriam :*

iam. Mary Upton, supposed to have been youngest child of the emigrant, is 
mentioned in her father's will. 

The full intentions of her marriage with Shubael Stearns of Lynn were published 
27 April 1705. Whether she became the second wife of Shubael Stearns, Sr., born 
1655, or married his son Shubael Stearns, Jr., born 1683, we have not ascertained. 

* Miriam Upton's birth is not entered in the town records of Reading, and she is not known 
to family records in tbe possession in some of her lather's descendants.

bapt. 21 Sept. 1712. He married, 1st, Phebe Swallow 1735. His "intentions of 

d d 


marriage" with his second wife, Edith Herrick, were declared 3 Aug. 1740 ; but 
Viuton dates the marriage 2 Dec. 1741. Children, all by second wife : 

a. Phebe, b. 1742, d. 1819, unm. ; b. Edith, b. 1744, m. Amos Upton (lag h a) ; c.

l a f p. Edward Upton was born on the west half of the ancestral estate at 
Wood Hill, in that part of Salem which is now Peabody, Mass., 16 April 1714, and 
bapt. 16 Oct. 1715. AVhile hardly more than a boy, he seems to have settled in 
Hampton Falls, N.H., at which place the births of his first two children are 
recorded. In Sept. 1740 he bought five acres of land in Amesbury, Mass., but sold 
it in Jan. 1744. Shortly afterwards he was living in Berkley, Mass., where we find 
him as late as 1768. He was taxed for a poll in Bedford in 1771, and not impro- 
bably finally settled in Rhode Island, as did some of his children. That he joined 
the Society of Friends is most probable, not only from the fact that most of his 
descendants have been Quakers, but from the peculiar wording of his family record, 
printed below, written, so far as the names and births are concerned, with his own 
hand, and dated " Berkley, 6th mo.* 1752," one entry only having been added after 
that date. The Hulls, Chases, and Marriotts, with whom his children intermarried, 
were Quakers early in the eighteenth century. He married Eleanor Osborn. 
Vinton, after considerable hesitation, erroneously gave him sons William and Henry 
Upton. I have made them children of his son Edward. His children were : 

a. + Isaac, b. 6th of 10th mo. 1736, m. s 1st, Phebe Peirce. 

b. + Edward, b. 1st of 1st mo. 1738. 

c. + Sarah, b. 23rd of 6th mo. 1739, m. George Shove. 

d. + Paul, b. 29th [or 22nd] of 5th mo. 1742, m., 1st, Phebe Smith. 

e. + Adonijah, b. 10th [or 16th] of 2nd mo. 1744. 

/. Mary, b. 22nd of 6th mo. 1746, d. unm., says the ' Memorial,' but a better authority 
says, m. Caleb Kelly. 

g. + Samuel, b. 3rd of 4th mo. 1748, m. Comfort Chase. 

A. Eleanor, b. 8th of 8th mo. 1750, m Hathaway, and lived till 1840 with a married 

daughter named .... Allen. 

i. + Rhoda, b. 28th of 2nd mo. 1752, m. Benjamin Chase. 

j. + John, b. 16th of 8th mo. 1753, m. Abigail Kelly. 

i a f g. Richard Upto^, of Wilmington, Mass., born 1716, bapt. 20 Oct. 
1717 ; married Rachel Rich 1746, and died 1768. Children: 

a. Mary, b. 1747, m. Thomas Patch; b. + Thomas Rich; c. + Paul; d. + Jethro ; 
e. Rachel, b. 1753 ; /. Timothy, b. 1756. 

* It may be well to note that in this record the months are numbered by New Style ; thus, 
•• 1st mo." is Jan., not March. In my account of this branch I retain, where used, the Quaker 
custom of numbering the months, thus indicating which descendants retained that faith. 


i a f i. Timothy Upton- of Salem (now Danvers or Peabody), born 1718, 
bapt. with his twin sister 21 Sept. 1718 ; married 1st, Hannah Stacy 1740 ; 2nd, 
Ruih .... lie died 1758, leaving, by his first wife : 

a. + Nathan ; b. Dorcas. 

With the greatest reluctance I follow the ' Memorial ' (page •164) in assigning 
him, by his second wife, two other sons,* viz. : 
c. + Timothy; d. + Benjamin. 

i a f j. Caleb Upton of Amherst, N.H., etc., born 1722, married 24 Feb. 
1744-5 Mary Steward of Reading. Of the following children, Rebecca is not 
certainly theirs ; but they are known to have had three daughters. 

a. Rebecca, m. James Litch of Fitchburg, Mass., Feb. 9, 1768 ; b. Olivee of Fitcbburg 
and Gardner, Mass., m. Susanna Styles, andd. insane in 1790, leaving a daughter Mary, b. at 
Fitchburg April 14, 1778 ; c. + Abiel, b. Oct. 20, 1755 ; d. + Robert, b. May 12, 1758 ; e. + 
Jeduthun, b. April 12, 1760 ; /. + Paul, b. Dec. 25, 1761 ;f g. + Edmund, b. 1769 ; h. 
Daughter . . . . , m. Crown. The present generation remember her as " Aunt Crown," paying 
occasional visits to her brother Paul and others of the family. 

i a g a. Samuel Upton of Salem Village (afterwars Dan vers), Mass., born 
1704, married Ruth Whipple 1726. I hardly think he or his wife removed to 
New Brunswick. They had : 

a. Mehitabel, b. 1727, bapt. April 7, 1728, m. John Very ; b. Anna, b. 1730, m., 1st, 
John Russell. They removed to ... . Maugerville, New Brunswick, where she m., 2nd, .... 
Jarvis Say ; c. + Asa ; d. Ruth, b. 1737, d. unm. 1816 ; e. Sarah, b. 1741, d. y. ; /. Sarah, 
bapt. March 6, 1742-3, m. Jacob Barker, and removed to Maugerville, N.B. ; g. + Samuel, b. 
May 4, 1744. 

* In all probability these children, Timothy and Benjamin Upton, were sons of a Nathan 
Upton. I follow the ' Memorial ' in placing them with the children of Timothy, only because 
I find no Nathan who could well have been their father. Mr. Vinton gives no authority for 
the paternity he assigns them, and appears to have taken his information at second hand. He 
says they were reared by their father's sister " Mrs. Hoven." But the husband of every 
known sister of their reputed father Timotby Upton is well known, and, so far as yet appears, 
none of the sisters married a Hoven. Furthermore, upon the death of Timothy the elder, a 
guardian was appointed for his children Nathan and Dorcas ; but we are not informed that 
the Court made any provision for other children. On the other hand, all the descendants of 
these two boys, who have any opinion on the subject, agree that their father's name was not 
Timothy but Nathan ; Mrs. Olive F. (Upton) Stetson (2 afi d g a), grand-daughter of one of 
these boys, and born and brought up in his house, says his father's name was Nathan. She is 
positive she has heard her grandfather Benjamin (2 afi d) say so, and remembers there was 
talk of naming one of her brothers Nathan after the ancestor, but the project was abandoned 
on account of objections to another Nathan of her mother's family. Mrs. Lucy D. (Upton) 
Tayler (2 afi d g g) is of the same opinion. So is David Hamilton (2 afi d i 7i), who 
considers Mrs. Stetson the best living authority on the subject, and says her daughter Mrs. 
Spear " made a record of this very fact " (descent from Nathan) " about ten years ago, when 
her mother was about sixty-two years of age and in the full vigour of life ; " Mrs. Elizabeth 
(Upton) Giddings (2 afi d a i) thinks the same. She remembers hearing her father (born 
1775) speak of a Nathan Upton, but never of a Timothy. I can add no clue for the benefit of 
the searcher after the true origin of this family, unless one is to be found in the fact that 
Benjamin Upton (2 afi da) had a cousin John Newton of Fairfield, Vt. 

f His descendants say " 1760," but this is probably erroneous. 


l a g h. Deacon Amos Upton of the North Parish of Reading (now North 
Reading), Mass., bapt. 1717, married Sarah Bickford 1789, and died 1780. He 
was Surveyor of Highways, Selectman, Assessor, Parish Clerk, Moderator of the

1 A K D. 

Ebenezer Upton of the North Parish of Reading was born 21 Jan 


1702 on the Reading estate, formerly the home of his grandfather, and occupied 
by his father until after Ebenezer Upton's death. He resided north of the Ipswich 
river in the northern part of what is now North Reading, his land being bounded on 
the east by the Middleton line, and extending to the town line of Andover. He also 
held the Gusset land and a share of Bear meadow, both of which had been acquired by 
his grandfather, the emigrant. He was Surveyor of Highways in 1732 and 1754, 
Constable in 1740, Selectman in 1749, and member of a committee to build a meet- 
ing-house in 1751. He married Sarah Goodell* of Salem 23 Feb. 1727. She 
survived him and died 6 Aug. 1789, aged 84 years. His will was dated 20 Nov. 
1753, and proved by his widow and eldest son 14 July 1755. Children : 

a. Sarah, b. Jan. 19, 1729, m. Daniel Graves of Reading ; b. + Ebenezer ; c. Anna, b. 
June 28, 1732 (says a family record, or 1733 according to the ' Memorial'), died young ; d. + 
Josiah ; e. + Amos; /. Anna, b. April 20, 1746 (or 1743, according to the family record), 
m. Samuel Jenkins 1766. 

* For her ancestry, see page 152. 



1 a a b b. Ephraim Upton, born 7 Oct. 1712, succeeded as bead of the 
family on the death of his father in 1743. His father bequeathed him £250 in 
bills of credit of the Province, but divided his lands between Ephraim Upton's two 
younger brothers. This may indicate that the eldest son was already provided for, 
but more probably means that he was an invalid, or otherwise unlikely to marry, 
and that the father was desirous of securing the descent of his realty within the 
family. Nothing more is known of Ephraim Upton, and he is supposed to have 
died unmarried. 

l a a b c. John Upton, in turn head of the family if he survived his elder 
brother, was born in Reading 27 April 1717, and died early in 1753. His home

i a f f b. Edward Upton was born in Hampton Falls, N.H., 1st of 1st 
month 1738. Here the knowledge of him among descendants of his brothers and 
sisters ceases. However, I hardly doubt that he was father of the two sons men- 
tioned below, whom Vinton, after much hesitation, erroneously made his brothers 
(' Upton Memorial,' pp. 446, 452 et seq.)* These sons were : 

a. + William, b. 1770 ; b. +• Henry, b. 1775, m. Sarah Jacox. 

i a f f c. Sarah Upton, born 23rd of 6th month 1739, married George 
Shove, a Quaker, grandson of Joseph Chase. They had : 
a. Eleanob (Shove) ; b. Maey (Shove). 

i a f f d. Paul Upton, born 29th or possibly 22nd of 5th month 1742 ; 
married, 1st, at Smithfield, R.I., 31st of 3rd month 1768, Phebe, daughter of John 
and Mary Smith of Mendon, Mass.f She died 5th of 3rd month 1815, and he 
married 2nd, 23rd of 1st month 1817, widow Phebe Earl, daughter of Edward and 

* Vinton evidently knew that William and Henry Upton were sons of an Edward Upton, 
and probably knew that they were related to the Quaker Uptons. Hence, and partly for 
geographical reasons, and partly because he knew of no other Edward (Edward 1 aff b being 
omitted from his book), he made them children of Edward (2 aff). Descendants of Henry 
(1 aff b b) know that he was son of an, Edward, and, I think, furnish the true clue, by their 
statement that that Edward was born in New Hampshire.

Phebe Halloch. She tenderly cared for him during his declining years, and survived 
him till 28th of ] 2th month 1838. An obituary upon his first wife will be found 
in the 'Memorial of Friends,' 1825, page 35. 

At the time of his first marriage he was of Oblong, N.Y., but at his second he 
was of " Stanfordtown," Dutchess Co., having settled there in 1777. The house in 
which they lived has been burned, but his fine farm is well known there, situated on 
a beautiful lake, which from him took its name, " Upton's Pond." He died in 1828, 
having had by his first wife : 

a. Asa, b. 1769, m. Hannah Underbill, without issue ; bad a farm near Upton's Pond, and 
was for a time Superintendent of tbe Friends' school at Nine Partners, Dutchess County, N.Y.

i a f f e. Adonijah Upton, born 10th or possibly 16th of 2nd month 1744 ; 
signed as witness at his brother Paul's marriage at Smithfield, R.I., 1768, and was 
taxed in Bedford, Mass., 1771. He is said to have removed to "Wayne County, N.Y., 
" or there abouts." 

i a f f g. Samuel Upton was born 3rd of 4th month 1748, probably in 
Berkley, Mass. He learned the potter's trade and lived until 1783 in East 
Greenwich, according to the ' Memorial,' or, according to his descendants, 
Providence, R.I. Soon after that date he removed to Stanford, Dutchess Co., N.Y. 
He married Comfort Chase, a Quaker Minister and grand-daughter of Joseph 
Chase, before mentioned, " one of the best Christian women who ever lived, sound 
in faith and charity, equally beloved by the aristocracy and by the poor and 
needy." She died 3rd of 4th month 1818, aged nearly 68. See her obituary in 
'Memorial of Friends,' 1825. They were both Orthodox Friends. He seems 
to have died about 1810. All their children settled near them except Samuel. 
These were (not including a son Edward erroneously given him in the ' Memorial ') : 

to the Christian account One Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty Eight. They the said Paul 
Upton and Phebe Smith appeared in a Publick assembly of the above said People and others 
met in Smithfield at their Publick Meeting House, and then and therein a solemn manner, he, 
the said Paul Upton, taking the said Phebe Smith by the hand, did openly Declare as followeth, 
• Friends, I Desire you to be my Witnesses that I take this Friend, Phebe Smith, to be my wife, 
Promising by the Lord's assistance to be unto her a true and loving Husband until Death shall 
Separate us.' And then and there in the said assembly the said Phebe Smith Did in like 
manner Declare as followeth, ' Friends, I desire you to be my Witnesses that I take this Friend, 
Paul Upton, to be my Husband, Promising by the Lord's assistance to be unto him a true and 
loving Wife until Death shall Separate us.' And in further confirmation thereof the said Paul 
Upton and Phebe Smith did then and there to these Presents Set their Hands, She according 
to the Custom of Marriage assuming the name of Her Husband. 

[Signed] Paul Upton, 

Phebe Upton." 
The certificate was also signed by a number of witnesses, including Adonijah Upton 
brother of the bridegroom.

i a f f i. Rhoda Upton, born 28th of 2nd month 1752 ; married 12th of 
6th month 1770 Benjamin Chase, a grandchild (as were also the consorts of her 
sister Sarah and brother Samuel) of Joseph Chase. She died about 1775, 
having had : 

a. Enos (Chase), whose descendants are scattered from Conn, to Cal. ; b. Edward 
(Chase), who left no family ; c. Benjamin (Chase), whose family record is lost. 

i a f f j. John Upton, born 16th of 8th month 1753, seems to have 
lived chiefly at Adams, Mass. He was taxed there in 1798 for a house-lot and twenty- 
nine acres. From a memoir in 'The Friend' for 1829, we learn that he died 
at Adams 9th of 7th month 1829, that he had been a Friend from early life, 
for many years an Elder, and for about fifty years an exemplary and useful 
member of East Hoosick Monthly Meeting. From this memoir, I infer he was 
not a birth-right member. If he was not, that fact may throw light on the 
question whether his father was a Quaker. Vinton says he married Abigail 
Kelly and had : 

a. + Adonijah ; b. Eleanor, d. y. 

l a f g b. Thomas Rich Upton of Wilmington, Mass., born 1748, married 
Ruth Evans 1770, and had :

he had :

Sarah . . . ., by whom he had at least two children, viz. :

m. Hercules H. Josselyn, who afterwards m. her youngest sister ; j. + Mary. 

l a f i c. Timothy Upton,* considered by Vinton a son of Timothy and 
Ruth Upton, was probably born earlier than 1750, the year of birth assumed in 
the 'Memorial.' Vinton says he was reared by his paternal aunt, a Mrs. Hoven, in 
New Salem (now Prescott), Mass. He lived in New Salem or Pelham, married 
Sarah . . . ., and died in 1821. His children are said to have been : 

a. Samuel, administrator of his father's estate 1821. 

b. Isaac, owned land in Prescott, Mass. 

c. Timothy, owned land in Prescott and New Salem. 

d. Hannah or Anna, owned land in Amherst, Mass. 

i a f i d. Benjamin Upton,* like his brother Timothy, said to have been 
reared by Mrs. Hoven in New Salem, Mass., was born in 1754, lived in New Salem 
and Shutesbury, Mass., and died in 1829. He served in the Revolutionary war and 
enlisted in the war of 1812, but was excused from active service on account of his 
age. He married three wives, 1st, Deborah Goodell ; 2nd, Hannah Hixon ; 3rd, 
Sarah Owen Trask. His children were, 

By wife Deborah :

and Harrington (now Millbridge), Me., born 1758, married Anna Wheelock 
1784, and died 1824. He served in the Revolutionary war, and from 1817 to 1820 
was keeper of the Petit Menan light station, Me. Soon after the war of 1812 he 
and his brother Jeduthun were forced to take lands on the Narraguagus river, Me., 
for a debt due them from James and Robert Foster ; and a son of each ultimately 
settled there. Children : 

a. + Samuel ; b. Anna, b. 1786, m Slack and had one child ; c. + Robert ; 

d. + Jonathan ; e. Nancy, b. 1794, d. y. ;/. + Mary ; g. + Sally ; h. + Lucy. 

* See footnote at page 203. 


i a f j e. Capt. Jeduthun Upton of Salem, Mass., and Steuben, Me., 
mariner, according to the family record written by his son John, was not born in 
1746 or 1752, as stated in the 'Memorial,' but 12 April 1760. He was, 
accordingly, younger than some of his brothers. He married, 1st, in 1783 widow 
Mary (Brown) Austin, who died 22 April 1815 ; 2nd, in 1816 widow Rachel Gage, 
and died 30 May 1823. By his first wife he had : 

a. + William ; b. + Jeduthun ; c. + Sally ; d. Betsey, b. 1788, d. Nov. 19, 1810, unm. ; 
e. + John ;/. Polly, b. 1791, d. Aug. 22, 1792. 

i a t j f. Paul Upton of Salem is said to have pointed out to his son 
Henry the house in Reading, Mass., in which he was born 25 December 1760 ; 
but the 'Memorial' says he was born in Amherst, N.H., in 1761. Probably 
the latter year is correct. He married Rebecca Pierce in 1785, and died 1830.

Priscilla Gardner 1791, and died 1814. He was admitted to Essex Lodge, 

F. and A.M., 2 December 1800, the first Mason of this family known to us. 
He had :

1803 ; c. Daughter, m Stone and lived in Salem.

Acadia in 1755, and fought at Lexington and later in the Revolutionary war. He 
inherited the east half of the original Wood Hill estate on the death of his uncle 
Benjamin Upton in 1768. He had issue : 

a. + Eli ; b. Elizabeth, b. 1767, d. 1769 ; c. Elizabeth, b. 1771, m. John Swinnerton 
in 1790, and bad : Elizabeth, Ede, Lucy, John Putnam. Asa, Hannah, Mary, Ebenezer, and Amos 
Putnam (Swinnevtou). 

i a g a g. Samuel Upton was born in Salem Village 4 May, and baptized 
8 July 1744. In the spring of 1764 he went to New Brunswick. Returning the 
following autumn, in the spring of 1765 he married Rebecca Spinney of Marblehead 
(says the 'Memorial'), or Rebecca Spinnet of Newburyport, as I am otherwise 
informed. They proceeded at once to his new home sixty miles up the St. John 
river, and settled at Maugerville in Sheffield Parish, Sunbury Co., N.B., where he 
died 5 October 1832. His widow, who was born in 1746, died 25 November 1834.

i a k a g. Elisha Upton of Middleton, Mass., and Amherst and Bow, N.H., 
according to the ' Memorial,' was born in [North] Reading in 1732, and died in 
Bow in 1805. A grandchild says he was born in Amesbury in 1727, and died in 
1800. The last date is wrong, as is probably the other. He married, 1st, in 1753 
Margery Wilkins ; 2nd, in 1770 Sarah Gilford or Guilford. The latter wife 
was born in Amesbury in 1743, and died in Bow 1820. He fought at Lexington

i a k d d. Josiah Upton of the North Parish of Reading, and of Bedford 
and Charlemont, Mass., was born in the former place 24 August 1735;* married, 
1st, Susanna Emerson ; 2nd, Catherine Hartwell. He was probably born on or near 
the old homestead in what is now North Reading, where the emigrant spent his 
latter years ; of which estate a part, at least, seems to have belonged to Josiah 
Upton's father. 

He lost his father when he was nineteen years of age and inherited one-third of 
the latter's lands. Soon after this, 28 December 1756, he married Susanna Emerson 
of his native town. About the year 1769 he seems to have parted with the ancestral 
acres and removed to Bedford, where his son Joseph was born and his first wife 
died. There also, it is supposed, about the year 1774 he married his second wife 
Catherine Hartwell,t believed to have been the daughter of Joseph and Sarah 
Hartwell of Westmoreland, N.H. About this time, certainly as early as 1778 and 
probably before the birth of his daughter Sarah, he removed to Charlemont, a new 
settlement in the western part of the state, where kindred of his wife had already 
located. There four children were born to him, and he died 10 December 1791. His 
widow was taken to Victor, N.Y., by her son James, and died there in, or soon 
after, 1799.$ 

Josiah Upton inherited from some unknown ancestor, perhaps from his mother's 

* Considerable confusion on this point has been caused by an erroneous inscription on his 
tombstone, which reads as follows :

His birth. 24 August 1735, and the births of all his brothers and sisters, children of 
'• Ebenezer and Sarah Upton," are to be found in the town records of Heading. Bedford, where 
the tombstone says he was born in 1728, was not incorporated till 1729. Such erroneous 
epitaphs are, however, far from uncommon,

family, peculiar mental characteristics, traces of which may still be seen in some of 
his descendants. Though all his life nominally a farmer, from early manhood he 
deovted a great part of his time to the pursuits of favourite studies and experiments. 
An expert mathematician, and somewhat of a chemist, he gave considerable 
attention to astronomy and dabbled not a little in mineralogy and metallurgy ; but 
his favourite subject was mechanics. He possessed, besides a considerable 
laboratory, a very complete work-shop, in which he was constantly experimenting, 
and constructing curious machines and devices. One of these was a wonderful 
clock, to plan and construct which must have required months of time, the nicest 
mathematical calculation and extraordinary mechanical skill. It was made 
entirely of iron and, besides keeping time, indicated the course of the tides, the 
motion of the planets, including the rising and setting of the sun and moon, the 
procession of the equinoxes, and other astronomical phenomena. At the same time 
he found time to carry on a quite extensive correspondence with some of the leading 
scientists and scholars of the day. 

As may be conceived, these pursuits furnished little financial return for the 
support of his family. Indeed he had a very slight appreciation of the value of 
money ; and no doubt his peculiar tastes and habits had something to do with the 
sale of his Reading land and his final removal to the frontier, where cheap living, 
cheap land, and a fertile virgin soil minimized the cares of the farmer and increased 
the leisure of the student. 

The more practical sons of his first marriage, trained to the use of tools in his 
work-shop, as they approached manhood gradually turned the shop into a source of 
revenue, by making and repairing tools and vehicles for their neighbours ; and 
before their father's death they were carrying on a blacksmith's shop on the site of 
his laboratory. Thus the course of life, which in the beginning perhaps promised 
important scientific results, ended by evolving a sturdy race of useful mechanics. 

Josiah Upton's self-acquired but unquestionably superior education and attain- 
ments were not unappreciated by his fellow-townsmen. They sought his opinions 
and advice in all important matters, public or private. He had been chosen 
Constable and Surveyor of Highways in Reading, and in Charlemont he 
was depended upon to do the great amount of surveying necessary in a new- 
country. The accuracy of his surveys has stood the test of time, and the curious 
instruments with which he worked are still preserved. 

His house in Charlemont stood on Meeting House Hill. About 1824 George 
Upton (1 ah ddec) built a house on the same foundation wall. 

The children of Josiah Upton were, 

By first wife, all born in Reading except the last : 

a. Susanna, b. Dec. 28, 1757, d. Sept. 1760. 

b. + Josiah, b. June 5, 1759, m. Sarah Underwood.

i a k d e. Amos Upton of the North Parish of Reading, born 6 or 3 May 1738, 
married in 1772 Ruth Upton (1 afe d), who died 1 December 1817. He died in 1822. 
He inherited one-third of his father's land and acquired other tracts by purchase. By 
deed dated 28 April 1763, and acknowledged 10 February 1764, Joseph FrieofReading 
and Deliverance his wife, for £461 conveyed to Amos Upton, jun., of Reading, a farm 
of 1 14 acres in Reading, being upland and meadow on the Ipswich river and " Bare 
meadow brook." This land passed to his son Amos and descended in the elder line 
of the latter's descendants to Henry Augustine Upton (1 ah d echo), its present 
possessor. Amos Upton was executor of the will of his father-in-law Francis 
Upton (1 afe), and he and his wife, by deed dated 25 February 1777, conveyed to 
Love Pickman 81 acres in Reading, which were probably part of his father-in-law's 
estate, reserving the easterly half of the house so long as his sisters [-in-law] should 
remain unmarried. Two days later, Love Pickman of Salem, widow, granted to 
Amos Upton, jun., a right of way to Isaac Upton,* his heirs and assigns, to pass " a 
foot or hors back or with any carage " across her lot of land which was formerly 
Francis Upton's (1 afe), "and allso" a right to said Amos "to Pass a Cross my 
Paster Land to his Paster that was formerly Jonathan Mackintiers, allso the 
heirs of Mr. Francis Upton Deceast Shall have Liberty to Pass to that Part of the 
house Reserved for them, as Long as they Live on Married." 

By deed dated 26 April 1778 Jonathan Flint, jun., and wife Rebecca of 
Reading, for £26 13s. 4d. conveyed to Amos Upton " a Sartain tract of meadow " 
in Reading "known by the name of Snake Hole," containing four acres more or less. 
Snake Hole is still held by his descendants. By his will he divided his lands equally 
between his two sons. 

His children were : 

a. Ruth, b. 1773, m. in 1791 John Flint, a son of Edith (Upton) Flint (I a It aj). They 
lived in the west parish of Andover, where she had a son Alanson {Flint) living in 1863 ; she 
died 1843 ; b. + Aaeon ; c. + Amos ; d. Sally, b. 1792, d. unm. 1818.

and "Daniel Upton, a State Senator in Michigan, who married an Upham of Le 
Roy, N.Y.," is thought to have been his son or grandson. William Upton is said 
to have lived with his brother Henry about 1850-1865, but that date is forty years 
after his brother's death. We are informed his family were in indigent circum- 
stances, and were helped more or less by his brother, on whose death they scattered

i a f f g b. Daniel Upton of Dutchess Co., N.Y., born 10th of 9th month

was born 1781, survived her husband, married again in 1836, lived a widow from

Hudson, and was about to start a cloth factory in that village when he died about

the next year. He held her memory sacred nearly twenty years, and died on his 
farm near Bangall 27th of 10th month 1855. A notice of his death in the ' Friends' 
Review ' of 8th of 12th month 1855 describes him as " a valuable Member and 
Elder of Stanford Monthly Meeting." As such he occasionally preached among the 
Quakers. He left no issue. 

l a f f g e. Samuel Upton of Hyde Park, Glenham, and Groveville, N.Y., and 
Sandstone, Mich., was born in Providence, P. I., 11th of 8th month 1783 ; married 
Charlotte Frost of Westchester Co., N.Y., 24th of 7th month 1806. 

While quite young he was taken with his father's family to Stanford, Dutchess 
Co., N.Y., and early in life became a woollen manufacturer at Hyde Park in that 
county. After his marriage he rented from John Jacob Astor and Philip Hone the 
Glenham Woollen Mills, situated on Fishkill Creek, three miles east of the Hudson, 
and conducted them till about 1820. He then purchased a water-power and grist- 
mill on the same stream between Glenham and the Matteawan factories and there 
erected a woollen mill, and founded and named Groveville. In 1830 he built a new 
flouring mill of three runs of stones, and at that time employed about fifty persons 
in his business. 

He continued in this business until July 1835, when he sold out and removed 
with his family to the western part of Jackson County in the Territory of Michigan. 
There he secured from the United States five tracts of land in the township of 
Sandstone, upon which the homestead now stands. The latter is three miles north 
of Parma, on the town-line between Parma and Sandstone, and is now held by his 
son Edmund. At this home he and his wife both died ; he, 3rd of 1st month 1861,

aged seventy-seven years, four months, and twenty-two days ; she, 9th of 2nd month 
1880, aged ninety-one years, two months, and nineteen days. They were life-long 
Orthodox Friends, his wife retaining to the end of her exemplary life the peculiar 
customs of the Quakers, their costume of dress and simple language with its sweet 
"thee" and "thou." Their children, always living far from a Quaker settlement, 
fell into the customs of " the people of the world " as to dress, but retained the 
plain language of the Friends. They were : 

a. Maby, b. 10th of 5th month 1807, died 12th of 10th month 1810.

His homestead is now in the possession of Adoniram Russell, a relative of the wife

i a f g c f. Paul Upton of Wilmington, Mass., born 1795 ; married Sarah 
Nichols of Hillsborough, N.H. He died of pneumonia, and she, three years later, 
•of cancer. They were buried in Wilmington. He is described as a farmer, very 
industrious and very accommodating, a poor man all his life. Nearly all his 
descendants seemed to have inherited delicate constitutions and a proneness to meet 
with all manner of accidents and misfortunes, and have thus been kept poor. But 


many of them have exhibited, usually in the humbler walks of life, industry, faithful- 
ness, and integrity, of which illness, accident, and poverty could not deprive them. 
His children were : 

a. Joseph R., b. 1819, d. of consumption in Sept. 1855, unm. ; b. Adolphus.Id. 1821, d. 1824 ;

It. Benjamin Franklin, b. 1840 in North Wilmington, m. Hannah Earl Jan. 1865, he was 
wounded in the Civil War, is a farmer, at present in Haverhill, Mass., and had : lafgcfka 
Henry, who d. Sept. 1866. 

i a f g d a. Timothy Upton, born 1783 ; married Ruth Burnham, and, ac- 
cording to the best information received, had only the first and third children 
mentioned below : 

a. Isaac Jethro, Hartford and Hartland, Conn., are mentioned as his home, perhaps 
Hartland, Vt., is meant. 

o. Jethro, mentioned in the ' Memorial ' only. 

c. Timothy, of Wilmington or North Wilmington, Mass. 

i a f i a j. Mary Upton, born 1784 ; married 1810 Hercules H. Josselyn, 

apparently of North Danvers, who, after her death, married her sister Sarah Upton. 

Mary's children were : 

a. Lucy (Josselyn), b. 1811 ; b. Hercules (Josselyn), b. 1816 or 1817 ; c. Elizabeth 
Upton (Josselyn), b. 1820 ; d. Mary Ann (Josselyn), b. 1823. 

i a f i d a. Benjamin Upton of Gerry, Mass., and Bakersfield, Vt., was born 
in New Salem, Mass., 22 March or April 1775 or 1774 ;* married Betsy Brown 
5 January 1802, and then settled in Gerry, now known as Philipstown. He 
worked at his trade of carpenter and joiner until about 1813, when he removed to 
Bakersfield and settled on a farm which was his home sixteen years. He then sold 
that and bought another farm, upon which he lived until his death. At the age of 
ninety-seven he was able to write to the compiler of the ' Memorial,' and he died 
" 6 March 1875," aged " one hundred years and ten months," as we are told. 

On his one-hundredth birthday the people of Bakersfield and adjoining towns 
came to his house with music and congratulations, and the patriarch was able to 
join in the festivities and sing them a song. His children were : 

a. + Kate. b. 14 Nov. 1802, m. Willard Hodges. 

b. James L., b. 2 Feb. 1805, d. 14 July 1878, unm. 

c. + Mary, b. 16 Aug. 1806, m. P. Tobin. 

* As he is the only Upton who apparently enjoyed a centenary of years, more exact dates 
would be most welcome. All agree that he was born in 1775, and 22 March is the only 
exact date named ; and all agree that he died in 1875 — " in Jan.," says his daughter, but a more 
careful correspondent says " 6 March." But all agree that he was aged 100 or 100 years and 
10 months, which could not be unless we place his birth in 1774 or his death in 1876. The 
latter year may be the true one, for the celebration of his hundredth birth-day is said to have 
occurred 22 April 1875.

before 1874, had four children. One account says he had a son Emerson, who was killed by a 
log rolling over him, but perhaps that was Jedediah's brother.

* So says the family record. Both of these dates cannot be correct. 

•j- I am satisfied this arrangement of the children is correct, except as to Emerson and Eliab, 
of whose places in the list I am uncertain. With the list in the ' Memorial ' (which follows a 
different order and omits one Ebenezer), I have compared lists furnished by : (1) Vashti 
(Upton) Green (2 a Jt d d b Tt), who agrees with my text except that she names Emerson and 
Eliab next after the first Ebenezer (probably because these three died in infancy) ; (2) Eliza 
(Upton) Booth (1 a k d d hf), who omits the first Ebenezer and Emerson, and makes Betsey 
younger than Eliab and older than Eunice ; (3) Hiram E. Upton (1 a k d d b d d), who makes 
his father Ebenezer younger than Josiah ; and (4) Eliza Jane (Flint) Stone (1 akddb cf), who 
omits the first Ebenezer, Betsey, Emerson, and Eliab, and makes Eunice older than Jedediah.

Reading 10 March 1778. He died 16 or 17 August 1811. His widow, left with 
8ix young children, kept them together, and reared them with rare ability. In 
1821 she married Bani Wing of Wilmington, Vt. They lived there sixteen years, 
and then returned to Charlemont, where he died in 1847, leaving her a pension as 
widow of a Revolutionary soldier. She spent her last nineteen years with her 
daughter Mrs. Booth, and died 9 March 1874, aged ninety-six, having retained 
her sight, hearing, and mental faculties to the last. She left descendants to the fifth 
generation, and a widowed great-granddaughter, whose hair was copiously sprinkled 
with gray, attended her funeral. All of Joseph Upton's children, except Lucy and 
the infant Eliza (and the alleged first Chester), were living in 1874. They were :

i a k d d i. Sarah Upton, born 18 June 1776 in Bedford or Charlemont, 
Mass. ; married in the latter town, probably about 1796, Israel Blood, with whom,

which is now Victor. Her husband was one of the first settlers there, and acquired

large tracts of land, including what was afterwards the Upton homestead. She 
died aged about 70, and her husband aged 83. Their children, the first-born in 
Charlemont, the others in Bloomfield, were : 

a. Anna (Blood), b. June 7, 1797, m. E. Calkins and had issue.

h. Daniel Haetwell (Blood), b. Jan. 7, 1810, m. Susan Turner and had issue; 
removed to Victor, Mich., Jan. 1838, and took up a farm on which he still lived in 1881, 
P.O., Laingsburgh. 

i, Hannah (Blood), b. Jan. 19, 1812. 

i a k d d j. James Upton of Victor, N.Y., was born in Charlemont, Mass., 
2 February 1779 ; married at Victor 21 April 1808 Olive, daughter of Samuel 
and Lucy (Tracy) Boughton.* 

The death of his father in 1791 made him, when but twelve years of age, the 
mainstay of his mother's family, and he assumed the responsibilities of life while 
very young. In 1797 he went to Victor, N.Y. — then a wilderness — and worked a 
year for his brother-in-law Israel Blood. He then returned to Charlemont, and in 
the winter of 1799 (probably 1798-9) "took his mother, brother, two sisters, and a 
swarm of bees," to Victor in an ox-sledge. He bought from Israel Blood the land 
where the Upton homestead now stands for seven dollars per acre, and built upon 
it a log house. This was burned by his brother David in drying flax. They then 
built another log house, and afterwards a frame one. The latter was afterwards 
moved back, and forms the woodshed of the present mansion house, which was 
built in the winter of 1817-18. The ' History of Ontario County, N.Y.,' says : 

" District No. 8 was entered by James Upton of Massachusetts about 1797. 
He chose a farm where [his son-in-law] W. C. Moore resides [in 1876], and it may 
be said the selection of these pioneers of fine farms was admirable and approached 
the marvellous. Upton was honoured as the recipient of earlyf town offices, and was 
an active citizen. He died at an advanced age." 

Mr. Upton was a man of sterling integrity, sound judgment, and excellent 
business capacity. These qualities secured him the respect and confidence of his 
neighbours, and, while still in his prime, a considerable fortune ; and he gradually 
became one of the best esteemed and most influential men in "Western New York. 
He fully appreciated the value of education, and reared a family of intelligent sons, 
and refined and womanly daughters. His wife died 24 April 1842, and he in 
1857. Their children were : 

a. Achsah, b. March 21, 1 809, m. July 5, 1830, Dr. Hiram Thompson of Bristol, N.Y., d. April 
24, 1832, leaving one daughter Mariette Emeline {Thompson), who d. in Victor in 1864, unm. 

* For Mrs. Upton's ancestry, see page 155 ante. 

t For example, he was elected overseer of the poor 6 April 1813 — one year after the town 
of Victor had been formed out of part of Bloomfield (which formerly included East and West 
Bloomfield, Victor, and Mendon), and named after Claudius Victor Boughton.

i a k d d k. Joanna Upton was born at Charlemont 13 June 1781. As 
stated above, she went to Victor, N.Y., with her brothers in 1799, and she resided 
there all her life. She married, 1st, Norman Brace ; 2nd, Isaac Marsh, but had no 
children. She, however, adopted, reared, and educated twenty-one children, 
including her brother David's daughter Lucy and all the children of her husband 
Marsh, and dying, left her fortune to charitable uses, and a name for goodness and 
charity which will long be cherished among the descendants of those to whom she 
was more than a mother.* 

l a k d d Xi. David Upton of Rollin, Mich., was born at Charlemont 2 July 
1783. When about sixteen years of age he removed to Victor, N.Y., with his 
brother James, with whom he resided for several years. He married, 12 September 
1805, Mary Marsh. She was born at Danbury, Vt., 9 November 1786, and died on 
their farm in Eollin, Mich., 31 December 1870. They removed from Victor to 
Ontario, Wayne Co., N.Y., about May 1817. He seems to have lived in Walworth 
also, and may have resided in other parts of New York State, as his youngest child 
was born at Palmyra in October 1826, but he was still in Ontario in March 1825. 
In 1846 he removed to Wheatland, Hillsdale Co., Mich., and about three years 
later to Rollin, Lenawee Co., where he died. Vinton says, " He had a large 
family, but their names are unknown." His children were : 

a. + Olive, b. Oct. 29, 1806, m. Levi Wilson. 

b. + Abiathar, b. Oct. 14, 1808, m. JaneHazlett. 

c. Joanna, b. Aug. 10, 1810.

* The annals of this branch of the Uptons are brightened by the names of three of its 
daughters, born in successive generations, who, while rivalling in intellectual capacity the 
brightest of their brothers, have been pre-eminent among their sisters, not alone for every 
grace and virtue of their sex, but for lives wholly devoted to the happiness and welfare of 
those about them. No kinder wish for the young daughters of the Uptons could be expressed 
than that their lives may be like those of Joanna Upton mentioned in the text, Mary Emeline 
Upton (1 a k d djj~), and Marietta Upton Ql a k d dj e d~).

i a a d d i f. Sylvander Jacob Upton of Chelsea, Mass. (whose names the 
' Memorial ' reversed), was born in Fitchburg in 1814 ; married Nellie Sprague, who 
was born in Dedham. 

He went to St. Louis, Mo., in 1839, and thence, in 1849, crossed the plains to 
California, where he was in Yankee Jim's branch store at Iowa Hill nearly four 
years. In 1853 he visited Oregon, to inspect a coal mine on the Cowlitz River. 
Returning to "the States" in 1858, he has since resided in Chelsea. He has two 
children : 

a. Ernest Cowdin, b. Oct. 10, 1869. 

b. Julian Sprague, b. Oct. 19, 187.1.

i a a d d i h. Thomas Cowdin Upton of Fitchburg, Mass., was born 30 July 
1819 ; married Mary Rupp. He has been in California twice, in 1849, when he re- 
mained two years, and in 1856. In the spring of 1850 he and his two brothers 
mined on Weaver Creek, Trinity Co. His travels have taken him to twenty-nine 
states, besides Mexico, the West Indies, Central America, and the two Canadas. 
He has spent four winters in Florida, and voted in five states ; has been a staunch 
Republican since 1856, and detests rum and tobacco. He has been very active 
in city affairs, and a member of its Common Council, and is a director of the Fitch- 
burg Co-operative Bank, which he founded. His only child :

i a a d d i i. Captain James Cowdin Madison Upton of Boston (known in 
business circles as J. M. Upton) was born in Fitchburg 8 November 1822 ; mar- 
ried 28 June 1849 Caroline Eliza, daughter of Edward N. Staniels by bis wife 
Harriet, daughter of Deacon Jedathan Richardson of Medford. She was born in 
Medford 29 December 1828. 


Soon after attaining his majority he entered mercantile life in Boston as a whole- 
sale produce merchant, and he has been in North Market Street since 1849. 
On 29 January 1887 friends in the Boston Chamber of Commerce — more than eighty 
of the greatest mercantile firms of the city — formally presented him a magnificent 
gold chain, as a memorial of their regard for his business standing and personal 
qualities. A long account of the ceremony and a portrait of Captain Upton may be 
seen in the ' Commercial Reporter ' of 3 February 1887. Although devoted to 
business he served from 1850 to 1858 in the militia, and for several years com- 
manded the "Washington Light Infantry. He commanded company G of the 1st 
Regiment of the First Brigade on the memorable day of the rendition of Anthony 
Burns — a duty repugnant enough to his feelings. A concealed physical weakness 
prevented his serving either in the Mexican or the Civil war, although he volun- 
teered for the former and was an ardent war Democrat during the latter. From 
1861 to 1865 he was indefatigable in raising men and money, looking after the 
wants of the needy, and promoting in every possible way the work of saving the

i a a e b b a. Major Aaron Upton of St. Stephen's, New Brunswick, born in 
Amherst, N.H., 7 March 1777 ; married 17 July 1799 Hezediah Cutler Christie. 
She was born in New Boston, N.H., 12 October 1774, and died 29 January 1830. 

About 1795 or 1799 he settled in St. Stephen's, and he was closely connected 
with all the history of that town for three-quarters of a century. He was a builder 
for some years, and then engaged in the West Indies trade, exchanging rum for 
molasses ; and carried on a general mercantile business, amassing a fortune. 
Besides ships, he owned many fine farms, stores, and wharves in St. Stephen's, and in 
Calais, Me. He was prominent in the provincial militia and was gazetted Major 
and perhaps Colonel. He was a man of sound judgment and spotless integrity, 
living upon a high moral plane and actuated by aristocratic feelings and strong 
pride of birth. While he was ready to do any kind of manual labour and have his 
sons do the same, he possessed and inculcated in his children a strong sense of 
family pride and English ideas of the proprieties, which limited the lines of employ- 
ment in which his children or grandchildren should engage. His social claims 
were assented to by his townsmen, and his family has ever ranked as one of 
the first in the province. In his old age he was somewhat set and stiff in his ideas 
and spent much of his property in litigations. The mansion he built in 1805 was 
swept away by the demands of trade in 1877, and upon its site in 1882 his grand- 
son Henry E. Hill erected a handsome business building, now known as the Upton 
Corner Store. 

Major Upton died 8 February 1867. The ' Memorial ' erroneously gives him a 
son Stilman. His children were : 

a. + Sarah, b. Oct. 8, 1800, m. George Stillman Hill. 

b. + David, b. April 6, 1803, m. Joanna Brewer Porter.

and died in Upper Mills 10 March 1874. 

Mr. Upton followed his brother Aaron to New Brunswick about the year 1825. 
He died at Upper Mills 11 February 1854. The 'Memorial' erroneously gives

Franklin County, where his first children seem to have been born. He then settled

children, Caroline and Stillman. Probably Mr. Vinton confounded his imaginary Caroline 
Upton (542) and Stilman Upton (548) with these ; or he may have taken Stillman from the 
middle name of Mr. Hill, who married Sarah Upton (J. a a ebb a a).

i a f a a c c. Daniel Upton of Batavia, N.Y.,* was born in 1796, and 
married Electa Randall in 1814. 

He was noteworthy not only for his own long and honourable career, but from the 
fact that he was blessed with such a family of children as few fathers can boast of. 

In 1818 he settled upon a farm in the western part of Batavia which was his 
home for seventy years. The town, which he lived to see become one of the most 
beautiful in the state, was then an unbroken forest. Here he lived a long life, 
which, both by its uprightness and its success, was of untold moral value to the 

While very tolerant of the views of others, he was for fifty-four years a member 
of the Methodist Protestant Church. For more than fifty years he was a radical 
teetotaler, and he was the first man in Batavia to " raise " a building without using 
alcoholic drinks. He zealously opposed slavery, was one of seven to cast the first 
abolition votes in the town, and tirelessly aided the operation of the famous " under- 
ground railway." " Many a panting fugitive, seeking a home of freedom, found 
sustenance, protection, and safe conveyance under his prudent and skilful direction." 

After seeing children and grandchildren launched upon useful careers, and some 
of them crowned with high honours, he died 12 February 1888, aged nearly ninety- 
two, and was buried at Elmwood cemetery. His widow died 8 August 1888. Their

i a f f a a a. Hon. Daniel Upton of Adams, Mass., born 1818; married 
in 1838 Mary Peckham. 

When invited to supply information concerning his branch of the Uptons, he 
replied that he "did not consider the matter of enough consequence " to him or 
his family. Fortunately, however, we are not left in utter darkness ; for in the 
sketch of his life printed in the ' Memorial ' (and furnished by himself, as I have 
the best authority for believing), we are informed that he is " a devoted Christian," 
deeply interested in " the Redeemer's cause " and the manufacture of writing 
paper ; that he has sat in the Legislature, has filled " nearly all the offices of trust 
in the town," and could have held " the responsible office of County Commissioner " 
still longer, " had he been so disposed." He is now president of a gas company, 
and a man of wealth ; and seems to be one of the very few Uptons who have 
learned that the accumulation of money is at once the chief end and the greatest 
pleasure of life. 

In 1872 his children had been : 

a. Jane Grey, b. 1839, m. Eansom R. Dean 1871 ; b. Edward Livingston, b. 1841, d. 
1843 ; c. Albert Henry, b. 1842, unm. ; d. Mary Elizabeth, b. 1844, d. 1864 ; e. Oliver

He was a prominent citizen of Albany, at one time Deputy Sheriff, and was 
Sergeant-at-Arms or Marshal of a Congressional Committee sent to Kansas in the 
troublesome time of the contest between the " abolitionists" and "border-ruffians " 
for the possession of that State. Mr. Upton's portrait, in a picture of that 
committee, may be seen in Nicholas and Hays' ' Life of Lincoln.' He left two 
children : 

a. Miles, b. 1837, m. Jeannette L. Brown. 1870 ; he is a lumber merchant, formerly at 
Spencerport, now at Palmyra, N.Y. ; b. Margaret, b. 1840, lives in N.Y. City.

County 28th of 6th month 1796 ; married Abby Haight, and is said to be still 

living in New York City. A family letter written in 1839 says he was then 

" about to publish his journal." He had a daughter :

father, and has a daughter Florence (Gildersleeve), b. about 1865.

who died 26th of 11th month 1851 ; 2nd, Martha Deuell, who died recently. His 


first wife became insane, and " he ascribed all his troubles to that period." He 
practised medicine in La Grangeville (or possibly La Grange), N.Y., and accumu- 
lated a comfortable fortune. In 1871 he was in government employment among 
the Indians in Indian territory. He returned to New York, and died at Pough- 
keepsie 10th of 1st month 1878 — himself insane before his death. His children,*

he lives in St. Louis." 

Of his children we know only :

Staufordville, N.Y. They were, besides an infant which soon followed its mother :

* This list is probably correct ; but one correspondent names his sons as " Paul C. (who m. 
William Gildersleeve's granddaughter, and lived in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1871) and John ;" 
and another says " Smith, Cromline, and John," and gives La Grangeville as their address. 
With this Paul C. Upton, compare Paul Carmen Upton (1 affddd). 

j Was she " William Gildersleeve's granddaughter," mentioned in the preceding note? 


Mr. Upton was born a Quaker, bat studied law, thereby greatly distressing his 
relations, and finally forfeited his birthright by marrying outside of the Society, his 
wife's father not being a Quaker, though her mother was. 

He removed to Indiana about 1837, practised law in Bluffton, and was leader of 
the Democratic party in Wells County, and for a few years in Pike. He founded 
the Bluffton "Banner" in 1849. In 1861, sympathizing with the Southern 
Confederacy, he removed to Vicksburg, where he remained until its surrender to 
the Union forces. He then took refuge in Western Louisiana, whence he returned 
to Vicksburg in 1865. He resided there and in neighbouring towns until 1873, 
when he removed to New Orleans, where he died 3 or 4 April 1882. 

He was a devout Christian, and a gentleman noted for his integrity, benevolence, 
and generosity. He never united with any church. His wife, not liking the 
Friends, on an early impulse joined the Methodists, but on her marriage united 
with the Presbyterians, to which denomination all her children belong. These 
were : 

a. + Phebe Ellen, b. July 22, 1811, m. Rev. B. J. Hamilton.

21st of 5th month 1867. She is still living, her home being with her sister Sarah 
at Stanfordville, N.Y. 

She has been a Minister among the Friends for more than forty years, and has 
made several visiting tours, according to their custom, once, in September 1849, to 
Vermont with her uncle Stephen Upton ; a little before the war to Wisconsin and 
Iowa with her husband ; and, since her widowhood, as far south as the Carolinas ;

' Louisiana Civil Code,' 1838, and published ' An Address at New York ' in 1840.

i a r j d a b. Hon. Charles Horace Upton of Fairfax County, Va., born 
1812 ; married in 183G Martha Ellen Page. 

He graduated at Bowdoin College in 1834, and was for much of his life 
connected with the newspaper press. In 1861 he was elected a Representative in 
Congress from Va., and in 1863 was appointed U.S. Consul at Geneva, where he 
remained until his death. From an obituary in the Geneva ' Courier ' we quote : 
" Although a Protestant .... he maintained the most cordial relations with the 
persecuted Catholics in Switzerland. He took a generous interest in working men, 

* This John Upton is an interesting character, but I cannot trace his descent. Wheelock 
S. Upton met him on the Mississippi sometime before 1845, and they ascertained that they 
were " cousins." John Upton is described as an old man at that time, and he had lost all his 
children. It was agreed between the two men that when the younger should marry his first 
daughter should be adopted and educated by the other, who would give her one-half his 
plantation in Tensas Parish, La. After the birth of the child, John Upton drew up the 
following will, but neglected to sign it, viz. : " This is my olographic will made in Tensas 
Parish, La., this eighteenth day of July 1850 : All my property, real and personal, I leave to 
my dear wife Mary, to her use during her widowhood . I bequeath to her in fee the slave 
Mary (raised in her family) and the mullatress Lucy. When my wife dies, and may God long 
give her life and health, I give and bequeath all my property, real and personal and mixed, 
to Mary Helen Johana, the daughter of my cousin Wheelock and his wife Mary Elinor, and 
her heirs for ever. I make my wife executrix of my estate, and, she being dead, my friend 
James G-. Gordon executor, giving them seizen. Upon the death of my wife I desire the slaves 
owned by me, except Mary and Lucy above named, shall be emancipated. After my death the 
legal interest of my wife in the community property has been provided for in her will with 
my concurrence. Upon the death of my wife all my interest in the property I die possessed 
of I give and bequeath in fee to the said Mary Helen Johana and her heirs for ever. So 
I write, date, and sign this testament with my own hand." 

He gave the wife of Wheelock S. Upton a house on Laurel Street, New Orleans, and six 
lots and a negro woman. The latter Mrs. Upton held until the emancipation proclamation, 
but the real estate, although she lived in the house one year before John Upton's death, the 
donor neglected to convey, and after his death his widow brought an action of ejectment and 
recovered it. John Upton died in 1851, and was buried on his plantation. His widow adopted 
a little girl named Wilson, and married her father. They live in Tensas Parish. 


and was a great friend of the orphans and abandoned children in the 'Orphinat de 
Douvaine.' .... The State Council was represented at the services at the Anglican 

Church, and his remains were sent to America His family had become 


The 15th, 17th, 18th, and 19th of June 1877 are each mentioned as the date of 
his death. His widow died at Mt. Pleasant, near Washington, D.C., 31 March 
1884. Their children were : 

a. + Rebecca Ellen ; J.Lucie Page, b. 1839, m. at Geneva in 1868 J. Pericles Hadji 
Lazzaro, a Greek merchant of Salonica, d. 1871, leaving one surviving child : Cleon Page 
(Lazzaro), b. 1869 ; c. Helen Augusta, b. 1841, d. 1857 ; d. Frances Estelle, b. 1848, 
d. 1869. 

i a f j d a c. Hon. Francis Henry Upton of New York City, born 1814 ; 
married in 1836 Sarah Foster Carr. He graduated at Harvard Law School in 1835, 
and became a leader of the N.Y. bar, and well known as a law writer.* During the 
Civil War he held the appointment of Counsel for Captors in Prize Court from 
September 1862 until disabled by a stroke of paralysis from which he never re- 
covered. He died 25 June 1876. Of him, George W. Cable, in his ' Strange True 
Stories of Louisiana — Salome Miiller,' says : 

" Many a New York City lawyer will recall, in his reminiscences of thirty years ago, a small, 
handsome, gold -spectacled man with brown hair and eyes, noted for scholarship and literary 
culture ; a brilliant pleader at the bar, and author of two books* that became authorities, one 
on trade marks, the other on prize law. Even some who do not recollect him by this description 
may recall how the gifted Frank Upton — for it is of him I write — was one day in 1863 or 
1864 struck down by apoplexy while pleading in the well-known Peterhoff case. Or they may 
remember subsequently his constant, pathetic effort to maintain his courtly mien against his 
resultant paralysis. This was the young man of about thirty [a.d. 1844], of uncommon mascu- 
line beauty and refinement, who sat beside Christian Roselius as an associate in the case of 
Sally Miller vs. Louis Belmonti." 

His widow died in Washington City 10 October 1880. Their children are : 

a. Francis Carr, b. 1837. He was appointed Assistant Paymaster on the " Wissahickon " 
in Nov. 1861, and tendered his resignation in May 1862, being a married man at that time. He 
has since resided in New York City. 

b. Sarah Carr, b. 1843. She was for seventeen years a translator in the Post Office De- 
partment, but resigned on the death of her mother. She lives in Washington, D.C., unmarried ; 
and is well known as a contributor of original and translated articles to leading magazines.f 

i a f j d a d. Hon. Edward Peirce Upton of Lamar, Texas, born 1816 ; 
married Elizabeth C. Burr in 1838. 

After living in Virginia some years he settled in Texas. The war found him 
" one of the most sterling Union men in Western Texas." He was indicted for 
treason against the so-called Southern Confederacy, and, six months before the war was 
ended, was thrown into Gonsales jail, where he remained until liberated by the fall 
of the Confederacy. His life was constantly threatened, and he was shot at several 
times. Nearly two years after the war had ended one of Mr. Upton's sons was 
foully murdered by a political mob of ex-Confederates who owed their lives to the 
forbearances of the political party to which their victims belonged.

In 1867 Mr. Upton was appointed, by the President, Judge of the 18th District 
of Texas, including six counties, a position which he held two years. The spirit of 
bigoted and cowardly intolerance prevalent in that part of Texas — a spirit which 
might make one blush for the west and the south — has made Judge Upton a pre- 
scribed man ever since the days of " reconstruction ;" but, in spite of the fact that 
he has ceased to practise law simply because clients have not dared to employ him, 
the sturdy Yankee has remained at the home of his choice, and enjoys an honourable 
old age. His children have been —

1836 Emily Collins Johnson ; 2nd, in 1845 Sarah Sophia, daughter of James and 
Lucy Ropes. 

His education included the classical training preparatory to a college course and 
a knowledge of French ; but, preferring a mercantile life, he entered his father's 
counting-room and became an eminent merchant. Business cares, however, did 
not cause him to neglect his studies or forget the higher uses of wealth. He became 


an authority on arboriculture and a musician of taste,* and was a liberal contributor 
to the funds of Brown University and the Newton Theological Institute. 
Mr. Upton died 30 March 1879, having had,

Having lost his father while an infant, at the age of fourteen he adopted a mer- 
cantile life. While still a minor, he settled at Nantucket, and he there engaged in 
merchandising, manufacturing, and the whale fisheries. In 1846, having accumu- 
lated a fortune, he removed to Boston, where he became a large shipowner, and was 
extensively interested in railway properties. He was for eight years treasurer of the 
Michigan Central R.R. Co., and was member of the House of Representatives of 
Mass. twice, and of the State Senate three times. . In 1853 he was a member of the 
Constitutional Convention, and declined an appointment as memoerof the Executive 
Council of the State. He was President of the Boston Board of Trade, and of the 
Sailors' National Home at Quincy, of which he was one of the founders. He was 
also Chairman of the Relief Committee after the "great fire" in Boston in 1872. 
He was exceedingly active in providing funds and equipping troops during the 
Civil War, and a letter which he wrote to Earl Russell, protesting against the 
conduct of Great Britain in permitting cruisers to sail from her ports to prey upon 
our commerce, attracted much attention and approval at the time. His great 
capacity was equalled by the breadth and liberality of his views, and he appreciated 
the true uses and obligations of wealth. This is shewn in one instance by the fact 
that he bore nearly the whole expense of compiling and printing ' The Upton 
Memorial,' thus earning the lasting gratitude of all Uptons, and building himself a 


monument which will stand for ever. He closed a life of eminent usefulness 1 July 
1874, having had issue :*

1812 ; married Sophia Roe, stepdaughter of ... . Richardson. 

He spent his life as a prosperous farmer in his native town, and died there 29 
December 1888. He possessed more than ordinary ability, and was a man of the 
strictest integrity and great kindness of heart. These qualities made him for many 
years one of the most respected and influential citizens of Victor, and he was 
frequently chosen to fill the most important offices of the town. His hospitality, his 
devotion to his friends, and his almost paternal kindness to the young, deserve per- 
petual remembrance. His children were : 

a. Maeia Thieza, m. Thomas Hancock, and settled at Shiloh, Ohio. 

b. William ; he volunteered at the call of his country in 1861, and received injuries in the 
army from which he never recovered ; he never married.

i a k d d j d. James Upton of Rochester, N.Y., born 19 April 1815 ; 
married Elvira Emeline Hawkins, who still lives in Rochester. Early in life he 
went to Michigan, and invested in wild lands there, and he devoted much of an 
active life to speculations in western lands. He was a man of great executive 
ability, and had acquired a competency and seemed on the verge of becoming a man 
of very great wealth when he suddenly died, 23 February 1866. He left an only 
child : 

a. Clabence Hawkins, of Rochester, N.Y., unm. 

i a k d d j e. Hon. William W. Upton of Portland, Or. r and Washington, 
D.C., born in Victor, N.Y., 11 July 1817 ; married, 1st, at Victor, 8 February 1840 
Maria Amanda Hollister,* who died in Sacramento, Ca!., 24 December 1858 ; 2nd, at 
East Avon, N.Y., 29 March 1860, Marietta Bryan.t 

His parents, being in good circumstances and of considerable social prominence, 
gave their son all the scanty educational advantages to be had in western New York, 
including a course of study in the then celebrated academy at Lima. His studious 
disposition and love of learning inclined him to think of taking a regular college

course ; but the usual disposition of youth to hurry into the battle of life led him 
to abandon that project, and join the tide of emigration which was then flowing 
from the vicinity of his home into the forests of Michigan. The conditions of his 
health also seemed to justify the step, for, while teaching school in Bloomfield, IST.Y., 
in the autumn of 1837, he had a severe attack of pneumonia, a disease from which 
many of this branch of the Uptons have died. Accordingly he left Victor 24 
January 1838. He went first to La Grange County, Ind., one Nathan Jenks, a 
Calvanistic-G-rahamite-Abolishionist, who had undertaken to build a city and 
college there on the model of Oberlin, having employed him to make the necessary 
surveys and estimates for a canal necessary to his project. After working several 
weeks young Upton discovered that his employer was more interested in reforming 
mankind than in keeping his promises or fulfilling his contracts ; and so, after an 
unsuccessful attempt to get his pay in any other currency than the well-nigh 
worthless Michigan " wild-cat money," he became for the first time a convert to 
Mr. Jenks's doctrine of " total depravity," shook the philanthropist's dust from his 
feet, and started on foot for Clinton Co., Mich., where his father owned some wild 
land in the town of Victor. He travelled via Bronson's Prairie, Cold Water, 
Tekonsha, Marshall, Bellevue, Wheaton, and Grand River, carrying his clothing, sur- 
veying instruments, and — characteristic of the man — " about ten pounds of books." 
One night he gladly shared the blankets of some young Indians, whom he nevertheless 
found, " like all the inhabitants of Michigan, extortioners." He arrived at He Witt 
28 March, staying that night with "one of the best known men in Michigan, who 
owes his celebrity entirely to being a human swine, the most unmerciful extortioner 
that has yet appeared in the Republic — even in Michigan."* He immediately went 
to work surveying and clearing his father's land, as well as some which he and his 
brother James secured, hired some oxen, planted a crop, and built himself a com- 
fortable log house, besides surveying for other settlers, taking part in the town 
meetings, building a wolf trap, etc. Sundays he devoted to his books, his favourites 
at that time seeming to be the French of Voltaire's " Charles XII." and the Scotch 
of Robert Burns. In August, however, he contracted the famous Michigan ague, 
which compelled him to return the following month to his native town. In October he 
was sufficiently recovered to take charge of the school in the district west of Victor vil- 
lage. In September 1839 he was employed as a surveyor in the construction of a canal 
near Buffalo. But for about a year and a half his health was poor, and for a time 
his sight was threatened. During this period he studied law, and won the affections 
of the lady who became his first wife. Having married in 1840, he returned to 
Victor, Mich., and, while retaining and improving his lands, began the practice of 
his profession. His ability and industry soon gained him a prominent place at the 
bar of his adopted State, and he was frequently chosen to positions of trust. He 
was Supervisor of Victor, 1840-5 ; Surveyor of Clinton Co., 1841-5 ; County 
Treasurer, 1845-7 ; and a member of the Legislature which made Lansing the 

* It is deemed entirely proper to preserve the impressions recorded in the young man's diary 
at the time, although in his charitable old age he would probably prefer to suppress them. At 
this time he had a New York boy's contempt for " the Michiganders ; " but within a few years 
he became an enthusiastic believer in the greatness of that State. 


capital. He was appointed District Attorney for Ingham Co. in 1848, and was 
elected to the same office for two terms of two years each in 1849 and 1851. He 
had removed to De "Witt in 1845, and to Lansing, in which city he built the first 
house that was not of logs, in 1847. 

Although by this time Mr. Upton's success in life was fully assured, and no 
young man in Michigan seemed to have a more brilliant political future before him, 
the wonderful tales of the new land of gold, the fascinating perils of the trip across 
the plains, and his own sagacious conception of the great future of the Pacific Coast, 
led Mr. Upton to resign his office, and with his family set out, 1 April 1852, 
for California. In that State he practised his profession with great success, first at 
Weaverville, and later at Sacramento, whither he removed in 1855. In 1856 he was 
a member of the Legislature. In 1861 the conspiracy formed by the southern 
element in California to carry that State out of the Union was checked and defeated 
by the prompt and fearless action of a few men, among whom Mr. Upton was a 
leader. A feeling of insecurity, nevertheless, continued to prevail, and created 
a determination in the minds of the loyal people of the State to place in positions of 
trust, especially near the capital, men whose patriotism and intrepidity could be 
relied upon in case of need. This sentiment found expression in the autumn of 
1861 in the election of Mr. Upton, although he had previously been a Democrat, to 
the office of Prosecuting Attorney of Sacramento County. This position he held 
until 1864. In that year he was urged to become a candidate for Congress, but the 
ill-health of his family compelled him to abandon a climate which had proved fatal 
to his wife and three of his children, and in the spring of 1865 he removed to 
Portland, Oregon. Thither his reputation had preceded him. He at once took a 
foremost position at the bar, and was almost immediately chosen to the Legislature. 
From this time forward he was a power in the political and social life of Oregon. 
Simple and unassuming in manner, and kindly and considerate in action, he exerted 
an extraordinary influence in the councils of the Republican party ; and, by his open 
hostility to corrupt and deceitful methods, and the example of his personal integrity, 
did much to elevate and purify politics. In 1867 he was appointed a Justice of the 
Supreme Court of Oregon, and in 1868 was elected to that position for a term of 
six years. At that time the Supreme Judges also performed Circuit work. Judge 
Upton's circuit included the most populous counties in the State, in which were 
Portland, Oregon City, Astoria, and other cities. He became Chief Justice in 1872. 
Oregon has usually been fortunate in her choice of judges ; but it is disparaging no 
one to say Judge Upton added to the high reputation of her judiciary for learning and 
integrity. He had been all his life a close and industrious student, not only of the 
law, but of science and belles-lettres ; and he brought to the bench the results of 
wide excursions into the fields of general literature, as well as acquirements of legal 
knowledge rarely excelled anywhere. His judicial opinions, which bear evidence of 
a mind at once broad and acute, are masterpieces of clear statement, logical analysis, 
and profound learning, expressed in a style singularly simple and stately. His 
labours on the Circuit bench were especially valuable in simplifying and systematizing 
the practice in the courts of the young State. Permanence for what he accom- 
plished in this respect was fortunately secured by the printing of more than eighty 
of his nisi priu s decisions with the Reports of the Supreme Court. 


At the expiration of his term of office, financial reverses compelled him to decline 
a re-nomination and resume the practice of his profession. Two years later an 
incident occurred which attracted to him widespread attention. It will be remem- 
bered that after the Presidential Election of 1876 the Democratic Governor of 
Oregon decided that one of the Republican Presidential Electors chosen there was 
ineligible, and issued a certificate of election to Mr. Cronin, a defeated Democratic 
candidate. It presently became apparent that if that one vote could be cast for 
Tilden, the latter would be President of the United States. The Republicans were 
in a quandary, from which the leaders at Washington could see no escape. They 
could claim the votes of South Carolina and Louisiana only on the ground that the 
decision of the State authorities as to what persons were appointed Electors was 
conclusive ; while this doctrine, if applied to the Oregon case, seemed ruinous to 
their cause. At this juncture a brother of Judge Upton's telegraphed from New 
York, asking him the true status in Oregon. In reply Judge Upton called attention 
to the fact that the constitution of Oregon forbade the Governor to pass upon the 
question of the elegibility of a candidate, and hence his action in issuing a certifi- 
cate to Cronin was not " the decision of the State authorities," but was a mere 
nullity. This answer was printed the next day throughout the United States in 
the associate press despatches, with the erroneous addition that the writer was still 
Chief Justice ; and created a profound sensation. The Republicans at once adopted 
its doctrine as the basis of their claim to the Oregon vote ; the Electoral College 
sustained it ; a political crime was prevented ; and Mr. Hayes became President. 

In 1877 the President, after surrounding himself with by far the ablest cabinet the 
country has seen since Lincoln's death, most unexpectedly to Judge Upton, 
tendered him the position of Second Comptroller* of the Treasury of the United 
States. As this was practically a judicial office and a court of last resort (the 
Comptroller's decisions being reversible by Act of Congress only), Judge Upton 
accepted the appointment with pleasure, removed with his family to Washington 
City, and entered upon the discharge of his duties 1 October 1877. 

He filled the office with great credit to himself through three administrations, 
passing upon nearly 160,000 accounts and claims, involving about $600,000,000.00. 
Moreover, some of the mighty men who were then administering national affaire, 
Garfield, Secretary Sherman, Senators Morton and Logan, and others, soon perceived 
in the unobtrusive Comptroller a lawyer of exceptional learning, and an adviser of 
sound judgment and never-failing common sense ; and for several years few important 
measures of state or politics were undertaken by the Republican leaders about which 
he was not consulted. When President Cleveland was inaugurated, and the country 
marvelled at that vast army of his "very hungry and very thirsty" followers which 

* When Alexander Hamilton devised the admirable system by which the Treasury Depart- 
ment is still conducted, he provided for the office of Comptroller, which he ranked in importance 
" next to the Secretary of the Treasury." The office roughly corresponds to that of Chancellor 
of the Exchequer under the English system. Not a dollar of public money can be expended, 
even by a Cabinet Officer or President, without the Comptroller's approval. In course of time 
the labours of the office became too great for any one man, and the office was divided, two 
Comptrollers with equal rank and emoluments being appointed, each with exclusive jurisdic- 
tion over a distinct portion of the public expenditures

besieged Washington in pursuit of the spoils of victory, Judge Upton tendered his 
resignation ; and since its acceptance, 1 June 1885, he has pursued the practice of 
his profession in the City of Washington. Early in 1885 the Government published 
his ' Digest of Decisions of the Second Comptroller of the Treasury, 1869 to 1884.' 
Upon the return of the Republicans to power in 1889, Judge Upton's age was 
deemed an objection to his filling any office commensurate with his deserts, more 
especially as, without excessive labour, he was receiving a gratifying income from 
his profession. 

Physically, Judge Upton is a man of fine appearance, a little above medium 
height, with regular features and an intellectual countenance. His manners are 
refined, his bearing at once dignified and kindly, and his social relations marked by 
a frank cordiality and a quiet sense of humour. 

If one thing characterizes the man more than any other, it is his love of learning 
for its own sake. This made him, from his youth, distinctively a student. While 
it was always a source of regret to him that his career was not based upon the 
substantial foundation of a collegiate education, he early acquired, by his own 
industry, a better education than that possessed by most university men. He has 
long been a master of the Latin language and literature, and possesses a good 
knowledge of French and Spanish. He has kept abreast of the scientific progress of 
the age, and few mathematical problems could be propounded which he would not 
find pleasure in solving. This same appreciation of learning led him, not only to 
make serious sacrifices to educate his children, but to superintend their studies 
personally to an extent rare among parents. In a period of nearly forty years there 
were very few days in which he did not employ some hours in this task. 

Of the forty-five years of what we may call his active life, he spent thirty-three 
in public office, yet he was never defeated in an election. Had his lot been cast in 
a more populous part of the country it would be rash to say to what political 
honours his ability would not have advanced him. Where he was, whether in the 
backwoods of Michigan, the goldfields of California, the courts of Oregon, or the 
councils of the rulers of the nation, he was always easily among the chief of his 
associates. Twice a seat in the United States Senate — a position in which, perhaps 
more than in any other, his talents would have been conspicuous — was within his 
reach, had not an almost hypercritical conception of duty once, and again his devotion 
to a friend, led him to refuse to be a candidate. After filling positions in which he 
passed upon questions of life and death, and the possession of millions of money, he 
retired from office literally poor. 

A Free Mason of rank, his course in every relation of life has been directed by 
the three great lights of that ancient craft, and his conduct measured by the golden 
rule. Surely it will be said of him, 

" He was a man, take him for all in all, 
I shall not look upon his like again." 

Of his first wife, Dr. Case's ' Hollister Family ' says : 

" She shared with her husband the hardships of life in a new country, crossed the plains 
with him and her three children in 1852, shared the political honours which his fellow 
citizens delighted in awarding her husband, and died just as financial prosperity was beginning 
to reward his labours. Her death, from pneumonia in childbed, occurred at Sacramento, Cal., 


24 December 1858. A lady who knew her intimately in her younger days says, 'I remember 
her as a lovely girl of fifteen. Her mother was an Adams. The women of the Adams family 
were generally good looking, and some of them were very handsome. Most of them were 
bright, vivacious, and more than ordinarily attractive, but of excellent sense and character. 
In all these respects Mrs. Upton resembled the Adamses, but she was of a lighter complexion ; 
she was of medium height, with a fine, trim, graceful figure, the rosy cheeks and blue eyes of 
the Adamses, and the beautiful brown hair of the Hollisters, whom she resembled mentally.' 
A very old gentleman, who knew her all her life, says, ' She had an unusually amiable 
disposition ; I never saw her angry. She was at once energetic and studious. Her education 
was better than that of most young ladies, and, though she never neglected her domestic 
duties, she managed to keep informed of the world's progress in literature and science to an 
unusual extent. She was a mother of whom her children may well be proud, whose memory 
they may well cherish. She acted well her part in all the duties of life and under all circum- 
stances, and she is now a saint in heaven.' " 

Judge Upton's second wife filled the trying position of a stepmother with 
a devotion and tact which won the gratitude and admiration of her husband, and 
the warm love of the children committed to her care. She is still living in 
"Washington, D.C.

i a k b d j j. Mary Emeline Upton, born 19 April 1829 ; married "William 
C. Moore of Rochester, N.Y. They lived a number of years in Peoria, 111., and 
afterwards, until her death, in her native town of Victor, N.Y., where she owned 
the old Upton homestead. She was a woman of great physical beauty, with a mind 
of rare capacity and activity. Her whole life was devoted to the welfare and 
happiness of those around her. Nothing was too difficult for her to undertake which 
promised to relieve suffering or advance the cause of religion. Embracing the 


tenets of the Protestant Episcopal Church in a community where its service was 
practically unknown, she, almost unaided, built it a house of worship in Victor, and 
educated its first ministers. But her religion and charity were confined by no 
denominational lines ; and the writer of this page was first led to comprehend the 
breadth of the Christian religion by observing its beautiful illustration in her 
daily life. Her death, which occurred 1 October 1879, was occasioned by a painful 
accident which befell her while on an errand of mercy to a poor neighbour. She 
was buried at Mt. Hope, Rochester, and will long be remembered by hundreds 
whose lives she made happier and better. Her husband, a man greatly respected for 
his ability, integrity, and kindly disposition, still survives. They had : 

a. Mary Elizabeth (Moore), b. April 1, 1851, d. Aug. 3, 1852. 

b. Caroline (Moore), b. Aug. 3, 1852, d. June 20, 1853. 

c. Ephraim "William (Moore), b. April 30, 1855, m. Lillian, dau. of Hon. George Willard, 
M.C., of Battle Creek, Mich.. He was a merchant in Victor until 1884, when he removed 
to Battle Creek. Their surviving children are: Charles E. {Moure), b. 1882, and Ralph W. 
(Moore), b. 1890. 

d. Charles Upton (Moore), b. April 1, 1857, m. Julia A. Lewis of Victor. He was book- 
keeper in the City Bank of Rochester, N.Y. ; and d. Aug. 27, 1882, leaving one daughter. 

e. George Hexry Claxton (Moore), b. Jan. 1, 1861 ; m. Marion .... In 1879 he lived 
for about a year with his uncle. Hon. William W. Upton. In 1884 he settled in Atlantic, la., 
which was his home until 1888, when he removed to Battle Creek, Mich., where he d. Nov. 22, 
1889. He left three children, one of them named George. His widow and two surviving 
children live in Cortland, N.Y. 

i a k d d j L. Charles E. Upton of Eochester, N.Y., born 1833 ; married 
Louise Racket in 1859. Early in life he went to Lansing, Mich., and studied law 
in the office of his brother "William W. He was then employed for two or three 
years in the American Exchange Bank in New York City, after which he became 
teller of the Commercial Bank of Rochester, and in 1864 cashier of the Rochester 
City Bank. In October of the latter year he organized the First National Bank, 
which about 1871 was re-organized under the State law as the City Bank. Of this 
institution he was for many years President and a principal owner. He was very 
successful as a speculator in oil as well as in banking, being a man of extraordinary 
financial and executive ability. But, although caring nothing for wealth except for 
the good he might do with it, he continued his habits of speculation long after he 
was worth more than half a million, and, as a result, on 19 December 1883 he found 
himself penniless and more than $300,000 in debt. As though this were not bad 
enough, his enemies and men who had been his rivals in business set about 
to besmirch his good name. 

Then began one of the most stupendous struggles ever undertaken by a single brain. 
With one hand he fought his enemies until he was fully vindicated by the decision of 
the Supreme Court ; and with the other he set about retrieving his financial disasters. 
In Wall Street and the oil regions of Pennsylvania his ability and special knowledge 
were so well known that capitalists were glad to share the results of combining their 
money with his brains ; and, as a result, in twenty-seven months he paid every cent 
of the vast indebtedness I have mentioned, and was once more on his feet. But the 
superhuman struggle cost him his life, and 20 March 1886 he died in his room in 
Power's Hotel, Rochester, from an overdose of medicine taken to induce sleep. 


The writer, who often partook of his generous hospitality and knew his very sonl, 
can say, no honester or purer man or truer friend ever lived. His standing in bis 
own home may be judged by the fact that these lines were printed as an editorial in 
the leading newspaper of Rochester but a few hours after his death : 

" Both, in public and private life he was prominently identified with the best interests of 
Rochester. As a business man he had the most brilliant qualifications, and his personal 
popularity was something remarkable. Kindhearted, generous, a thorough gentleman by 
birth, instinct, and education, he had the happy faculty of not only winning friends, but of 
retaining friendships to the last ; and his death to-day will be mourned sincerely by hundreds 
who have known him since he first came to Rochester in the flush of young manhood. His 
mistakes are now forgotten in the memory of the good he has done, of the helping hand which 
was ever extended to the helpless, of the manly heart which is stilled for ever, and throughout 
the whole community there will be but the one expression of unaffected sympathy." 

He was buried at Mt. Hope cemetery. His widow and daughters live in New 

York City. Besides an adopted son, his nephew Charles Floyd Torrance 

(1 a Jc d dj m a), Mr. Upton had : 

a. Anne, b. 1860 ; b. George Racket, b. 1863, d. 1866 ; c. Louise and d. Alice, twins,

married 1st, in 1854 Mary J. Chase ; 2nd, in 1856 Sarah Jane Gilchrist. 

On 9 October 1861, at the call of his country, like many New England gentlemen, 
he enlisted as a private soldier. He was assigned to Co. G, 6th N.H. Vols., the 
regiment which met with the severest losses of any infantry regiment in the civil 
war. His regiment was placed under Gen. Burnside, and went with his expedition 
down the coast to North Carolina during the winter of 1861-2. Upton was present 
at Camden and other battles. They removed into Va. in July 1862, and fought in 
the second battle of Bull Run and at Chantilly under Pope ; South Mountain and 
Antietam under McClelland ; and Fredericksburg under Burnside. Mr. Upton was 
made Orderly Sergeant of Co. G 1 January 1883, and the following spring went with 
his regiment to Kentucky and down the Mississippi. He was at the fall of Vicksburg 
4 July, and at Jackson, Miss., later under Grant; and was commissioned First 
Lieutenant of Co. F, to date from 20 October 1863. In the spring of 1864 his 
regiment was joined to the Army of the Potomac, went through the campaign of the 
Wilderness, and was at the siege of Petersburg, where he received his death wound. 
A letter written 1 August 1864 by Captain Jones of his company says : 

" In the morning of July 30th, Lieut. Upton was placed in command of the brigade pioneer 
corps, a post of much responsibility and peril, and after the mine was exploded under the rebel 

fort, he was the first man to go over the breast-works and enter the fort He had been in 

every fight the 6th Regiment had been in, which were seventeen, besides several skirmishes." 

* An obituary places his first marriage " in 1834 " and his second in " Sept. 1849 ; " says his 
" only child, a daughter," died in Brentwood March 2, 1874 ; and makes May 27 the date of 
his death.

His taste for military affairs connected him with the militia from 1836 to 1861, 
and during this time he rose through all grades to that of Colonel. 

In 1861, resigning an office in the Custom House, he organized the 25th Regiment 
of Mass. Vols., which he commanded with great skill and credit in the battles of 
Roanoke Island and Newbern in 1862. Soon after this, ill-health compelled him 
to leave the army, but his military knowledge was of great service to his state in 
equipping troops for the field.

frequently held important local offices until unfitted for active life by an accident 
while blasting, which entirely destroyed his sight 16 September 1874. He still lives

iafaabba. Colonel John Cunningham Upton was born 2 January 1828, 
apparently in Franklin Co., Tenn. We have but meagre details of his career. He 
seems to have been in California in 1854, but his home was probably in Texas. He 
is described as a man of great ability, greatly beloved by all who knew him. 

In the Civil War he was a Colonel in the Confederate Army, and was killed in the 
second battle of Manassas, 30 August 1862, while commanding the 5th Texas 
Regiment, Hood's Brigade, — " the idol of his command," says one who fought by 
his side. He left no issue, and seems to have been unmarried. 

iafaabbd. Colonel William Felton Upton of Schulenburg, Texas, 
was born near Winchester, Tenn., 31 August 1832 ; married Mary Ann Henderson 
21 January 1858. 

He seems to have spent his boyhood near his birthplace in constant toil, 
receiving no education. In 1853 he removed to Texas. In 1861, at the call of his 
adopted state, leaving his young bride, he entered the Confederate Army, where he 
won distinction and rose to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. At the close of the war 
he returned to his home in Texas, and engaged in mercantile business. Though with- 
out even a common-school education, his kindly and generous impulses, strict 
integrity, affable demeanour, and, above all, his singular ability as a leader of men, 
made him a power in Texas politics. Seeking little or nothing for himself, he was 
for years a veritable Warwick, seemingly making and un-making Senators and 
Governors at his pleasure ; but with such evident patriotism and fairness withal 
that he had the confidence and respect even of his political enemies,* and was 
everywhere affectionately known as " Uncle Billy." He was almost constantly a 
member of the Texas Legislature, and was chairman of the Democratic State Conven- 
tion in 1883. Upton County, Texas, was named after him. He died suddenly at his 
home in Schulenburg 7 February 1887. His widow still survives. They had no 
children of their own, but he left an adopted child. 

* It is worthy of remark that the writer's first knowledge of Colonel Upton was derived 
from a letter written in his praise by another Texan Upton, a Union man, whose career was 
wrecked, and whose son was murdered by cowardly ruffians who belonged to Colonel Upton's 
political party.

iafaacce. Hon. John Bean Upton of Big Rapids, Mich., born 2 July 
1829 ; married in 1853 Julia Ann Sherman. He entered Oberlin College in 1851, 
but was compelled by ill-health to leave. In 1880, however, his alma mater gave him 
his degree of A.B. He removed to Lawrence, Mich., in 1859, and was admitted to 
the bar in 1861. He was appointed First Lieutenant and Quartermaster of the 28th 
Mich. Inf. 15 August 1864, saw service in Tenn. and N.C., and was mustered out 
16 September 1865. In 1868 he settled in Decatur, Mich., where he was Prosecuting 
Attorney six years. In September 1875 he formed a professional partnership at 
Big Rapids, and the following April removed to that place. In 1886 he was elected 
Prosecuting Attorney, and he is now (November 1888) the Republican candidate for 
the same office. 

Mr. Upton is a handsome man of fine ability and sterling integrity. He is an 
elder of the Westminster Presbyterian Church, of which his wife and four daughters 
are also members.

Mrs. Upton, as we have elsewhere stated (page 94), has compiled a valuable form 
for preserving family records. Like many intelligent ladies of the "West, she has 
taken a keen interest in those g7«m'-political questions which affect the moral 
welfare of society. She was one of the first to organize a war against the liquor 
traffic in 1874 ; has been a delegate to a state anti-saloon convention ; twice 
President of the " Woman's Christian Temperance Union," and for five years its 
Secretary. Unlike some of her associates in this work, she has been a model 
wife and mother, rearing a large family of children to lives of usefulness. These 
were : 

a. + Sarah Moss ; b. + Adelaide Randall ; c. + Sherman ; d. + Harriet Beecher 
Stowe ; e. Rose Electa, b. 1862 ; graduated at the Big Rapids High School, and spent two 
years in Olivet Coll. ; she is now (1888) teaching in Minneapolis ; /. Daniel, b. 1864; entered 
Olivet Coll. in 1883, and after three years there entered Cornell Univ., where he is pursuing a 
course in mechanical engineering ; g. MARIA Louise, b. 1868 ; is a student in Olivet Coll. ; 
h. La Roy Sunderland, b. 1869 ; after learning the printer's trade, he entered a competitive 
examination for appointment to West Point from the ninth Mich, district, won the appoint- 
ment and entered the Academy in June 1887 ; i. George Bruce, b. 1871 ; j. Son, b. and d. 
Dec. 18, 1873 ; k. Frankie Violet, b. Jan. 18, 1875. 

iafaaccf. James Stephen Upton of Battle Creek, Mich., born 22 July 
1831 ; married 1st, in 1857 Viola V. Packer, who died at Mobile, Ala., 27 April 1879 ; 
2nd, 1 January 1880 Marion A. "Wood, M.D., of Battle Creek. 

He graduated at the National Law School, Poughkeepsie, in 1855, and was 
admitted to the bar, but in 1863 he retired from practice and engaged in the manu- 
facture of threshing machines. In 1874 he organized the "Upton Manufacturing 
Co.," of which he has since been president. He is the inventor and patentee of 
the threshing machines and horse powers made by that company. He was 
Postmaster in 1869, and was the Democratic candidate for the 46th Congress. His 
children, all by his first wife, have been : 

a. Edward Frank, b. 1859 ; he lives in St. Paul, Minn., a member of the firm called " The 
St. Paul Stained Glass Co. ;" b. Mary Rachel, b. 1862 ; graduated at the School of Arts, 
Ingham Univ., in 1883 ; c. Martha Platt, b. and d. 1864 ; d. Grace Maria Louisa, b. 1865 ; 
educated at Ingham Univ. 

iafaacch. Lieutenant Henry Upton of Pierce, Neb., born 20 June 
1835 ; married Susan Conde Osgood in 1864. 

After leaving the schools of his native town, he studied in Lima Seminary and 
Oberlin College, and in 1856 entered Yale, whence he was soon driven by ill-health. 
His proficiency in mathematics caused him to be elected Professor of Mathematics 
in an Illinois College. He resigned this appointment, and went in search of health 
to Marseilles, 111., where he spent several years farming and teaching, and married. 
In August 1862 he enlisted in Co. D, 104th 111. Vols., but was transferred in 
February 1863 to the 121st N.Y., with the rank of First Lieutenant. He was 
discharged on account of wounds near the end of the same year, the certificate stating 
that he " always shewed the highest order of courage." Next he spent several years 
in Batavia ; then went West and taught in Andalusia and Rock Island, 111. He 
was Principal of the public schools at Milan, 111., 1871-6, and at Decatur, Mich., 
1876-83. In July of the latter year he engaged in farming, for his health, in Pierce, 
Neb., and he died there 29 July 1887. He was buried at Oak Hill, Battle Creek. 


A man of broad and cultured mind, a fine orator and a gentleman of affable 
manner, he was at the same time a man of strong convictions and fearless expression. 
These qualities, as well as the mathematical turn of his mind, which induced him to 
carry his views to what appeared to be their logical results, regardless of consequences, 
made him a strong and conspicuous advocate of the " temperance " (prohibition), 
woman suffrage, and anti-secret-society movements. Yet, with all his earnestness, 
he was no fanatic, but a thorough Christian gentleman ; and one who knew him 
intimately has well said, " Others may have greater reputation ; but, in lofty personal 
character, no Upton ever honoured the name more than he." His widow, with her 
younger children, lives in Pierce. He had : 

a. Daniel Luther, b. 1866 ; lie is now editor and proprietor of the ' Pierce County Call ;' 
b. Catherine, b. 1868 ; c. Lucy, b. 1871 ; d. Henry Conde, b. March 30, 1874 ; e. Isabel 
Randall, b. Sept. 6, 1875 ; /. Howard Osgood, b. Feb. 21, 1879, d. Sept. 1, 1879 ; g. Emory 
S., b. Feb. 8, 1882. 

lAFAACcz. Maria Eusebia Upton, born 5 September 1837, graduated 
at Ingham University 1857. She was Preceptress of the Union School at Battle 
Creek two years, and at Batavia four years ; Professor of Higher Mathematics in 
Ingham University four years ; and Professor of English in Miss Waine's French 
Boarding School in New York City two years. In 1871 she married Samuel Cullen 
Hanford, M.D., of Brooklyn, N.Y. Since her residence in that city she has been 
for ten years Recording Secretary of the Industrial School Association, and has taught 
a class of sixty young ladies weekly in Bible study. She is now (1888) studying for 
a medical degree. She had : 

a. Pastova (Hanford), b. April 9, 1874, d. April 10, 1874. 

iafaaccj. General Emory Upton, born at Batavia, N.Y., 27 August 
1839 ; married 19 February 1868 Emily Norwood Martin, who died 30 March 1870. 
Her portrait may be seen in Professor Michie's ' Life and Letters of Emory Upton.'* 

After spending the preceding winter in Oberlin College, he entered the U.S. 
Military Academy at West Point in June 1856. He graduated eighth in a class of 
forty-five, 6 May 1861, just at the beginning of the Civil War, and was immediately 
commissioned Second Lieutenant in the 4th Artillery, but assigned as aide-de-camp to 
General Daniel Tyler, commanding the First Division, Department of North Eastern 
Virginia. He saw his first battle at Blackburn's Ford 18 July 1861, and received 
his first wound at Bull Bun three days later. He commanded Battery D, 2nd 
Artillery, in the engagement at West Point, Va., 7 May 1862, and in the battles of 
Gaines' Mills and Charles City Cross Boads, June 27 and 30 following ; commanded 
the Artillery Brigade, 1st Division, 6th Corps, at Crampton Gap, 14 September, 
and at Antietam, 17 September 1862. He was appointed Colonel of the 121st 
N.Y. Vols, in October 1862, and commanded that regiment in the battles of 
Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and the first two days at Gettysburg ; commanded 
the 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, 6th Corps, at Gettysburg, 3 July, and at Rappa- 
hannock Station, the Wilderness, and 8 and 9 May 1864 Spottsylvania Court

House ; commanded the assaulting column of the 6 th Corps, composed of twelve 
regiments, 10 May 1864 ; and the 2nd Brigade at Spottsylvania, 12 and 14 May, 
at Cold Harbour, in the operations around Petersburg, in the defence of Washington 
in July, and at "Winchester. He was promoted, "for gallant and distinguished 
services," Brigadier-General of Volunteers, 12 May 1864. After the death of Gen. 
Russell at Winchester, he commanded the 1st Division, 6th Corps, till the close of 
the battle. For his services on this occasion he was brevetted a Major-General of 
Volunteers. He commanded the 4th Cavalry Division, Military Division of the 
Mississippi, at Montevallo, Ebenezer Church, and at the capture of Selma and 
Columbus in 1865. " For his personal gallantry and good management " in this 
campaign he was recommended for promotion to the rank of Major-General. He 
commanded the District of Colorado from September 1865 to 30 April 1866, when 
he was mustered out of service as a general officer of Volunteers, and resumed his 
rank of Captain in the 5th Artillery, U.S.A. On the re-organization of the army 
he became Lieut.-Colonel of the 25th Infantry, 28 July 1866. 

He was appointed Commandant of Cadets at West Point, 1 July 1870, and held 
this position, greatly to the advantage of the Academy, until ordered in June 1875 
to make an official visit, via San Francisco, to Japan, China, India, Russia, Italy, 
Germany, Austria, and England, for the purpose of studying the armies and 
military institutions of those countries. Upon his return he was assigned 1 March 
1877 to duty at the Artillery School at Fortress Monroe. There he wrote his 
official report of his tour, which was published the following year under the title 
' The Armies of Europe and Asia,' and began his ' Military Policy." He 
was promoted Colonel of the 4th Artillery, and took command of the Presidio at 
San Francisco 23 December 1880. 

While he won enviable distinction on the battle-field, it is as a tactical writer 
that he is most widely known. During the war the insufficiency of the existing 
systems of tactics became manifest. In the spring of 1864 he began to formulate 
his ideas on this subject ; and 13 January 1866 he submitted to the Government 
' A New System of Infantry Tactics.' This, on the recommendation of a Board 
presided over by U. S. Grant, was adopted by the United States 1 August 1867. 
His tactics for artillery and cavalry, assimilated to his infantry tactics, was adopted 
17 July 1873.* He was engaged upon a radical revision of his infantry tactics 
at the time of his death, and left a nearly completed manuscript. 

General Upton was above all things a thinker. He had decided opinions upon 
all matters relating to his profession, and was unwearied in his labours to improve 
the service. As we have seen, while at Fortress Monroe he began a work entitled 
' The Military Policy of the United States ;' this he regarded as in some respects 
the chief work of his life. He devoted two and a half years labour to its composition. 
When he submitted it to his publishers they, for commercial reasons, rejected it as 
"lacking in popular interest." "Thereupon," he said to the writer, " I re-wrote it 
for them, and now I think they will not have to complain about its attracting 
popular interest ; in fact, I think it will cause me to be the best abused man in the 
country. But I think it will be commended a century hence." The remark was 

* For an account of General Upton's published works see page 94. 


typical of the man. He worked and thought, and wrote for all time. This work 
was left in manuscript. Its publication by the Government has been decided upon 
by the War Department, and no doubt it will some day see the light. 

"When General Upton took command at the Presidio in 1880 his lot in life 
seemed most enviable. Forty-one years of age, he possessed a military record of which 
any man might be proud. As a military authority he was known throughout America 
and Europe. In the army he was generally regarded as one of the most brilliant 
officers in the service, and in all human probability " the coming man " in case of 
another war within twenty years. He had lead a clean, upright Christian life. His 
handsome presence attracted attention, and his loyal heart and genial disposition 
surrounded him with devoted friends. He possessed a comfortable fortune, and 
received an income from the copyright of his books alone which more than supplied 
all his needs. Moreover, his last promotion had been especially gratifying to him, 
and he went to his new command with most pleasurable anticipations. But suddenly, 
in a day, all was changed. An insidious disease, a chronic nasal catarrh, from which 
he had suffered for years, began to affect his mind. He fell at times into a profound 
gloom. He imagined his life a failure, his system of tactics an entirely erroneous 
one destined to ruin his country in the hour of need. He made heroic efforts to 
shake off this feeling, but at last reason reeled from her throne, and on 14 March 
1881 he died, slain by his own hand. He was buried beside his wife in Fort Hill 
Cemetery, Auburn, N.Y. They had no issue.* His will bequeathed the sword 
which he had carried through the war, to the nephew, or collateral relative bearing the 
Upton name, who should first graduate at West Point. 

iafaaccm. Sara Kelsey Upton, born 14 June 1846, graduated at 
Ingham University in 1866. She is a woman of exceptional ability and attainments. 
Her distinguished brother Emory relied greatly upon her excellent judgment, and 
consulted her about the most important matters of his life-work. For some years 
she presided over his household and dispensed his hospitality in a most graceful 
manner. She was his executrix and principal legatee. Mr. Vinton acknowledged 
his indebtedness to her assistance in preparing the ' Memorial,' and the author of 
this volume was equally favoured. She married George Benjamin Edwards of 
Batavia, 21 December 1887, and has issue :

and in Appleton's ' Cyclopedia of American Biography,' but none of them are satisfactory, 
failing, as they do, to represent his decidedly intellectual cast of countenance, and the kindly 
expression which always characterized it.

iafcfaaa. Joseph "Warren Upton of Peabody, Mass., born in that 
town (then South Dan vers) 18 November 1821 ; married 12 September 1849 
Elizabeth Merrill. After receiving a thorough education at Salem, Andover, and 
Easthampton, he chose the profession of a teacher. He began to teach in what is 
now Peabody in 1839, having charge of the West Peabody, the South Peabody, the 
Felton, the Bowdich, and the Wallis Schools, successively, until 1850, after which he 
taught in Greenfield, Derry, N.H., Gloucester and Lynn. In April 1859 he became 
Principal of the Centre School in Peabody, a position which he filled until October 
1880. In that month he tendered his resignation to become Librarian of the 
Peabody Institute in the same town, a position which he still holds. His resignation 
was accepted with the utmost reluctance by the school committee, and they passed 
most appreciative resolutions acknowledging his exceptional services to his native 
town. In his present position, his has been largely a labour of love ; and a great 
part of the good accomplished by the Institute, as well as much of its own growth, is 
to be traced directly to his personal exertions. The author of the ' Memorial ' 
acknowledged his " indispensable assistance " in compiling that work. The writer 
•can do no less, for without the patient and cheerful co-operation of J. Warren Upton 


through a period of many years this volume could never have seen the light. His 
services, in part at least, are not unknown to the Uptons. From various parts of the 
country have come to the writer letters expressing the opinion that " He knows more 
about this branch of the Uptons than any other man in New England," — to which 
we venture to add " or elsewhere." Upon the organization of " The Upton Family 
Association " he was naturally, though without his knowledge, appointed its first 
Secretary ; and he succeeded as its second President in 1891. 

Mr. and Mrs. Upton's children have been : 

a. Feank, b. Nov. 26, 1851 ; educated at the Peabody High School ; d. Jan. 22, 1870 ;
