EDWARDS. A glance at the early history of this family in England discloses the fact that it is of Welsh origin. One of its representatives in the mother country was created a baronet in 1615, and the immigrant ancestor of the branch now being considered was himself a man of substance and intelligence. It is quite probable that William, Edmund and John Edwards, who arrived in New England either simultaneously or at the same time, were relatives, possibly brothers. William and Edmund are said to have sailed from London in the "Hope" in July, 1635. John probably located first at Watertown, Massachusetts, and in 1640 settled at Wethersfield, Connecticut.

(I) William Edwards was accompanied from England by his wife, Ann, or Anna, and one child, and there are reasons for believing that they came from Maidstone, in the county of Kent. He was in Taunton, Massachusetts, in 1640; was in Lynn, same state five years later, and about the year 1650 he located permanently at East Hampton, Long Island, as one of the first settlers. He died in that town in 1685, aged eight years. His children were: 1. William. 2. John. 3. Thomas. 4. Ephraim. 5. Sarah. 6. Annie. 7. Elizabeth. 8. Hannah.

(II) John, son of William, Edwards, resided in East Hampton and died there in 1693. He married Mary Stansborough and their children were: 1. Thomas. 2. Josiah. 3. John. 4. William. 5. Sarah, married James Stansborough in 1703. 6. Margaret, married Isaac Stretton in 1703. 7. Another daughter who became the wife of Samuel Daniels.

(III) Josiah, son of John Edwards, was, in all probability, a life-long resident of East Hampton, and his death occurred there February 14, 1713. His will was made in 1712 and recorded in New York. In April, 1699, he married Mary Churchill, born April 6, 1675, daughter of Joseph and Mary Churchill, granddaughter of Josiah and Elizabeth (Foote) Churchill, and great-granddaughter of Nathaniel Foote, of Wethersfield, Connecticut. Josiah and Mary (Churchill) Edwards were the parents of: 1. Josiah, born March 17, 1700. 2. Churchill, April 17, 1703. 3. Jonathan, January 13, 1704. 4. William, 1706. 5. David, April 6, 1707. 6. Mercy, September 24, 1710. 7. Nathaniel, again referred to. 8. Mary, twin sister of the preceding, born April 12, 1713; married Captain Zebulon Peck, of Bristol, Connecticut; died May 23, 1790. "A child of Josiah's died February 11, 1713; on February 14, Josiah himself died, and on April 13, the wife and mother died." After the death of their parents the children were taken to Wethersfield, Connecticut, where they were reared.

(IV) Nathaniel, son of Josiah Edwards, was born in East Hampton, April 12, 1713, died in Waterbury, Connecticut, March 20, 1768. He married Margaret, born July 8, 1720, daughter of John and Margaret (Strong) Root, of Farmington, Connecticut. She was a granddaughter of Stephen Root and a great-granddaughter of John Root, an immigrant, who was one of the first settlers in Farmington. Nathaniel Edwards resided in Watertown, Connecticut, and the name of five of his children were recorded in Middletown: 1. Nathaniel, see next paragraph. 2. Margaret, born October 16, 1740. 3. Asahel, March 87, 1743. 4. Mary, December 28, 1744, died in infancy. 5. Abigail, February 15, 1746.

(V) Captain Nathaniel (2), son of Nathaniel (1) and Margaret (Root) Edwards, was born October 30, 1738. He was evidently residing in Waterbury or the immediate vicinity at the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, in which he participated, and the adjutant-general's report of "Connecticut Men in the Revolutionary War," page 41, contain the following record of his services: "Nathaniel Edwards, 1st. Lieut. of Waterbury, Connecticut, commissioned May 1, 1775. Discharged, December 20, 1775. In 5th Company, Capt. Benedict Arnold's Co. This company served at the Siege of Boston." On page 414 (same book) appears the following: "Nathaniel Edwards, 1st Lieut. of Waterbury, prisoner at Fort Washington, November 16, 1776. In Bradley's Battalion." On page 547 (same book), viz.: "Nathaniel Edwards, 2nd. Name appears as Captain of a company in General Waterbury's State Brigade, 1781." On page 586, (same book), appears the name of "Nathaniel Edwards, of Watertown, Captain in a Provincial Regiment, 1781., appointed to be an officer in the regiment ordered by the Federal Assembly to be raised and put in readiness to march on the shortest notice, in case his Excellency, General Washington, should call for them." The maiden name of Captain Nathaniel Edwards' wife cannot be

Page 80

found in the records examined, and a list of his children is also wanting.

(VI) Dr. Joseph Edwards, son of Captain Nathaniel (2) Edwards, was born in Watertown. He settled in Lisle, Broome County, New York, and died there in 1830. He married Susanna Frost, born in Woodbury, Connecticut, in 1758; died in Watertown, Connecticut, October 28, 1802.

(VII) Joseph Wadsworth, son of Dr. Joseph and Susanna (Frost) Edwards, was born in Watertown, December 14, 1779; died in Hackettstown, New Jersey, August 21, 1853. About the year 1800 he settled in Plattsburgh, and December 25, 1803, was married in that town to Betsey, daughter of John Roberts. Children: 1. Gustavus Vasa, again mentioned. 2. Adna Susanna, born August 15, 1806. 3. John Wadsworth, September 3, 1807. 4. James Madison, September 9, 1810. 5. Edna E., January 10, 1813; married Theodore Roberts. 6. Hiram Pierpont, April 18, 1815. He was a captain in the War of 1812, and was at the battle of Plattsburgh.

(VIII) Gustavus Vasa, son of Joseph W. and Betsey (Roberts) Edwards, was born in Plattsburgh, September 2, 1804; died February 26, 1874. He began his business career as a merchant in Plattsburgh, whence he removed to Grand Isle, Vermont, and carried on a mercantile establishment there for seven years. In 1837 he established himself in Norwalk, Ohio, but returned to Plattsburgh in 1841 and resided there for the remainder of his life, the latter years of which were spent in retirement. October 17, 1830, he married Augusta Goodnow, born in Alburg, Vermont, February 13, 1813; died January 11, 1903. Children: 1. Christopher Gore Selfridge, born at Grand Isle, March 21, 1833; died March 29, 1868; married Jerusha B. Miller. 2. Charles Edward Milton, again referred to. 3. Augusta Maria, born in Norwalk, Ohio, December 3, 1838, died March 2, 1907. 4. John Quincy, born in Plattsburgh, September 22, 1844; died November 8, 1896.

(IX) Charles Edward Milton, son of Gustavus Vasa and Augusta (Goodhow) Edwards, was born at Grand Isle, May 29, 1835. He accompanied his parents from Norwalk, Ohio, to Plattsburgh, when sic years old, and received his education in the public schools of that town. When a young man he engaged in mercantile business with his father, but later became a member of the firm of Sowles & Edwards, hardware dealers, and continued in that line of trade for many years or until his retirement some ten years ago. He is now devoting his time exclusively to the management of his real estate and other investments. He is a director of the First National Bank of Plattsburgh, also trustee of the Samuel F. Vilas Home; member of the Presbyterian Church. Politically Mr. Edwards is a Republican. For some year he served with ability as water commissioner, and was one of the original members of the board of alms, which was formulated for the purpose of checking the useless expenditure of public moneys. Mr. Edwards married, October 23, 1861, Margaret, born in Brooklyn, New York, October, 1838, daughter of John and Margaret (Joralemon) Dimon. Children: 1. Margaret Augusta, died young. 2. Jane Joralemon; married Charles H. Winship; formerly of Randolph, New York, now of Plattsburgh, New York. 3. Gustavus Vasa. 4. Charles Milton, married Mildred Parkhurst, of Plattsburgh; children: Beatrice Margaret and Marian Parkhurst. 5. George Hartwell, married Lida Greaves, of New York City.

HARTWELL. This branch of the Hartwell family, nine generations of which are mentioned in this article, is descended from William Hartwell, an immigrant from England, who was one of the founders of old Concord, Massachusetts, and whose

Page 81

posterity are now widely distributed through many states in the Union.

(I) William Hartwell, with several others intelligent Englishmen, who were desirous of worshipping unmolested according to the dictates of their conscience, settled in Concord in September, 1635. Receiving an allotment of land amounting to about nine acres, he erected is dwelling house on the Lexington or old "Bay" Road, about one mile east of the public square. He was made a freemen in 1642, and in 1653 signed a petition asking the general court to authorize the established of the adjoining town of Chelmsford. As the settlement of Concord advanced in growth and prosperity, his possessions increased and in 1666, when the board of selectmen found it necessary to make clear the titles and boundaries of each proprietor, he was one of the largest real estate holders in the town, owning nineteen separate tracts, the whole comprising some two hundred and forty-seven acres. Though not conspicuous for his prominence in the town government, he nevertheless fulfilled with marked ability his share of public service, both civil and military, and possessed the confidence of his fellow townsmen. He was one of a committee of nine, formulated in 1672, for the purpose of framing rules for the guidance of the selectmen; was appointed a corporal in 1671; quartermaster in 1673; and was subsequently chosen cornet of the Second Troop of Horse, Middlesex County Militia. He was probably twenty-three years old at the time of his settlement in Concord, and his death occurred March 12, 1690, in the seventy-seventh year of his age. Jazan, his wife, who was born in England in 1608, died in Concord, August 5, 1695. Children: 1. Sarah, married Benjamin Parker, of Billerica; died July 8, 1674. 2. John. 3. Samuel, born March 26, 1645; died July 26, 1725. 4. Martha, April 25, 1649; died prior to 1690.

(II) John, eldest child of William and Jazan Hartwell, was born in Concord, December 23, 1640; died January 12, 1702-03. He served in Captain Wheeler's company, which marched to the defense of Quaboag (now Brooklyn) during King Philip's War, and in 1689-90 was made a freemen of the colony. June 1, 1664, he married (first) Priscilla, daughter of Edward and Elizabeth Wright, who died March 3, 1680-81, and on August 23, 1682, he married (second) her sister Elizabeth. She died December 16, 1704. Children; 1. Ebenezer, born February 28, 1665; died January 1, 1723-24. 2. John., April 15, 1669. 3. Samuel, October 9, 1673; died December 31, 1694. 4. Sarah, February 12, 1767-77; married Ebenezer Lamson. 5. William, December 22, 1678; died July 10, 1762. 6. Joseph, January 24, 1680-81. 7. Elizabeth, October 23, 1683; died young. 8. Elizabeth, December 23, 1684; probably the one who married Samuel Wilson. 9. Edward. 10. Jonathan, February 15, 1692; died October 18, 1713.

In 1707-08 he was a soldier in the colonial forces serving against the allied French and Indians; was a sergeant in the militia in 1722, and subsequently attained the rank of major. When a young man he located in Lancaster, Massachusetts, where he married Sarah, daughter of Thomas Wilder and in 1724 removed to Lunenburg, Massachusetts. A man of gigantic stature and unusual physical strength, his mental powers were equally superior, and possessing a remarkably forcible character, he was especially fitted for leadership in the newly settled country. He was therefore one of the most conspicuous figures on the frontier in his day. For many years he acted as a justice of the peace; was judge of the court of common pleas from 1750 to 1762; a member of the committee of safety from 1773 to 1776; and when more than eighty years of age represented Lunenburg in the

MORGAN. The word is a Cymric derivative, meaning one born by the sea (muir, sea; gin, begotten). The little town of Caermathen, in Wales, is the place where this famous name originated. The town itself is supposed to be the Maridunum mentioned by Caesar in his commentaries. It may have been the place that Shakespeare had in mind as the scene of those parts of Cymbeline that are located in Wales. Quotation: "Myself, Balaruis, that am Morgan called.: Prior to the Roman invasions this district was inhabited by a warlike tribe called by the roman the Demetae. A chieftain of this tribe, Cadibor-fawr, died in the year 1089. His wife was Elen, daughter and heiress of another chieftain, Llwch Llawan, son, Bleddri. In the sixteenth generation from Bleddri is found Sir William Morgan, of Tredegar, knighted in 1633, member of parliament in 1623-25. There is still standing in Wales several of the Morgan ancestral homes, about seven miles from Cardiff, and numerous families of this name still reside here. The Morgan name has been notable in the United States in many ways and especially in its military annals. It has also been distinguished in educational and philanthropic work and in finance, and is now scattered from one end of the country to the other. It is worthily associated with the history of Northern New York. There were several immigrants of the name early in New England, and as above noted their descendants spread throughout the country. Miles Morgan came from Bristol, England, in 1636, to Boston, and became one of the founders of Springfield. Richard Morgan was a pioneer at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and had many descendants in that state.

(I) James Morgan was born in 1607, in Wales, probably in Llandraff, Glamorganshire, whence the family moved to Bristol, on the opposite side of Bristol channel, prior to 1636. There is a tradition that his father 's name was William. In March, 1636, he sailed from Bristol, accompanied by two younger brothers, John and Miles, and arrived in Boston, Massachusetts, the following month. John Morgan was a high churchman, and soon parted from the austere Puritans and made his home in Virginia. It is supposed that James Morgan lived for a time at Plymouth, but this cannot be proven. He was in Roxbury before 1640, and was made freeman there May 10, 1643. He appears there in 1646, and was freeholder as late as 1650, the same year in which he removed to Pequot, now New

Page 84

London, Connecticut, and had a house lot assigned to him there. The records of that town show that lands for cultivation were granted him early in that year, and were soon occupied by him. His homestead was on the "new street," now Ashcroft Street, and a subsequent entry shows that "James Morgan hath given him about six acres of upland, where the wigwams were, in the path that foes from his house toward Culver's, among the rocky hills." These tracts were located near the present third burial ground, in the western suburbs of New London, a sterile and dreary location which was soon abandoned by its occupants, who made their homes in the more promising district east of the river Thames. . James Morgan became a large landed proprietor in that district which has ever since been occupied largely by his progeny. He was public-spirited, was often employed in surveying lands, establishing highways and boundaries, and as magistrate in adjusting civil difficulties. For several years he served as selectman, and was one of the first deputies sent by New London plantation to the general court at Hartford (May session, 1657), at which time he was fifty years old. An active member of the church, his name is prominent in every movement of that body. "James Morgan, Mr. tinker, and Obadiah Brown are chosen to seat the people in the meeting house, which they doing, the inhabitants are to rest silent." In 1661m he was one of a committee to lay out the bounds of New London "on the east side of the great river," and the next year he was on a committee to contract for building a house for the ministry at New London. He died in 1685m and his estate was soon after divided among his four surviving children. he married, August 6, 1640, Margery Hill. Children: 1. Hannah. 2. James. 3. John. 4. Joseph. 5. Abraham. 6.

He settled in the latter town about 1692, and was a prominent citizen both there and in his former location, New London. He represented the latter town in the general court, in 1689, and Preston, 1683-094, and was an Indian commissioner and adviser. He married (first) Rachel, daughter of John Dymond, and after her death married (second) Widow Elizabeth Williams, daughter of Governor Theophilus Eaton. Children by first wife: 1. John. 2.
