Coat of Arms :---Ar. a fess between three Moors heads couped at the shoulders, sa. charged with as many martlets of the field.
Thomas Harris came to New England with his brother, William, and Roger Williams, in the ship Lion (or Lyon), from Bristol, Eng., Dec. 1, 1630, and landed at Salem, Mass. Anne Harris, of Providence, R. I. and Parnill, wife of Thomas Roberts, of Newport, R. I., were their sisters. In July, 1676, William and Thomas Harris asked administration of Town Council of Newport, on estate of Parnill*, widow of Thomas Roberts, they being the only brothers of deceased. According to a written record of Nicholas Harris5, M. D., (who was born in 1749 and whose father Jedediah4 was living while his grandfather, the 2nd Thomas Harris was, and hence, must have heard something of origin of family), his first ancestors in this country, Thomas, and brother William, "came from the town of Deal, in the Island of England." William and Thomas Harris went with Roger Williams from Salem, Mass., to Providence, R. I. (see note), and about Aug.20, 1637, they signed the following compact: "We, whose names are hereunder, desirous to inhabit the town of Providence, do promise to subject ourselves in active or passive obedience to all such orders or agreements as shall be made for public good of the body in an orderly way, by the major assent of the present inhabitants, members of families incorporated together, into a town of fellowship, and such others whom they shall admit unto themselves only in civil things." July 27, 1640, Thomas Harris and thirty-eight others, signed an agreement for a form of government. On Sept. 2, 1650, he was taxed £1. From 1652 to 1663, he was Commissioner; in 1654, Lieutenant; in 1655, Freeman. Bishop's "New England Judged," published in London in 1703, says, "that in July, 1658. After these, came Thomas Harris, from Rhode Island, into your Colony, who, Declaring against your pride and oppression, as he could have liberty to speak in your meeting place at Boston, after the Priest had ended, ‘warning the people of the dreadful, terrible day of the Lord God, which was coming upon that Town and Country, him much unlike to Nineveth, you pulled down and hall'd him by the hair of his head. out of your meeting, and a hand was put on his mouth to keep him from speaking forth, and then had before your Governor and Deputy, with other Magistrates, and committed to prison without warrant or mittimus that he saw, and shut up in a close room, none suffered to come at him, nor to have provisions for his money; and the next day whipped with so cruel stripes, without showing any law that he had broken, tho' he desired it of the jailor, and then shut up again for eleven days more, five of which, he was kept without bread (your jailor not suffering him to have any for his money, and threatened one of the other prisoners very much for bringing him a little water on the day of his sore whipping), and all this because he would not work for the jailor and let him have eight pence in twelve pence of what he should earn," etc., etc.
From 1664 to 1673, Thomas Harris was Deputy to the General Court. 1664 to 1669, member of Town Council. Feb. 19, 1665, he drew lot 7 in division of lands. It fronted on what is now South Main street, Providence, about 122 feet wide and containing nearly five and one-half acres, running back to what is now Hope street. From 1666 to 1675, he was Assistant, and in May, 1667, as surveyor, he laid out the lands, etc. Aug. 14, 1676, he was on a committee that recommended certain conditions, under which Indian captives should be disposed of by the town. They were to be in servitude for a term of years. April 27, 1683, he made the statement, that about 1661, being then a surveyor, he laid out "a three score acre lot for my son Thomas, at Paugachauge Hill, and a 25 acre lot on the south side," etc.
His will was dated June 3, 1686, and proved July 22. Executor, son Thomas; overseers, sons-in-law, Thomas Field and Samuel Whipple.
Sept. 1, 1687, his widow, Elizabeth Harris was taxed 1s. Thomas Harris2, (son of Thomas  and Elizabeth Harris), m. Elnathan Tew, and lived in Providence. Feb. 19, 1665, he had lot 49, in a division of lands. 1671, ‘;79, ‘80, ‘81, ‘82, ‘85, 91, 94, 97. 1702, ‘6, ‘7, 8, ‘10, he was Deputy to the General Court. 1684, ‘85, ‘86, member of Town Council. His will was dated June 31, 1708 and proved April 16, 1711. Executors, his wife Elnathan Tew and son Henry .
On some of the grave stones in the old North Burying Ground, in Providence, R. I., are supposed to be the Harris Coat of Arms three martlets on a shield. William Harris, who caused this coat of arms to be put on his daughter's grave stone in 1723, was son of Thomas2, and b. about 1672 was fifteen years old when Thomas¹  died, and must have had the traditions and acquaintance of the first generation. This coat of arms he had on three other stones erected to his children and it was later put on his own stone, and this was probably adapted from the arms given at the head of this sketch, used by the Harris families of Cheshire and Devonshire.

Williams calling Harris ‘that prodigy of pride.' who, being an impudent morris dancer in Kent, under the cloak of jests against the bishop, goes into flight to New England, etc." The volume also contains copies of William Harris letters, written in captivity for in returning to England the third time on business, the ship in which be sailed, Unity, was taken, Jan'y 24, 1630, by an Algerine Corsair, and he was sold in Barbary and after more than a year's slavery, was ransomed at a high price.

THE CHICKERING-ALLEYNE FAMILY
OF DEDHAM

     IN our New England towns it often happens, as years go on, that some family which has been prominent, perhaps from the beginning, dies out. The lands which they owned so long, the houses which they built, still remain; but their family name is no longer in the tax list or in the roll of those who vote at town-meeting. You can probably call to mind several families of this kind. Mr. Stimson, in his story called “King Noanett” (the scene of which is laid in this vicinity), mentions by name, as well-known among the earliest settlers here, Edward Alleyne and Francis Chickering. He says they seemed to be at the head of affairs in Dedham, and took the lead in the persecution of a poor Quaker woman who had been whipped out of Boston, and whom the hero of the story rescues from like treatment here. He takes her hastily away, up the river, in his own boat. The family about which I desire to speak combines these two old Dedhain names. Francis Chickering and Edward Alleyne are worthy of having their better qualities made more prominent. They were among the first to come here from England, Edward Alleyne in 1635 and Francis Chickering and his brother Henry a little later. The Chickerings came from the neighbourhood of Wrentham in Suffolk, just across the border of Norfolk, and near the North Sea. Several of our early settlers were baptized or married in the 'Wrentham Church, which still stands, its lofty tower overlooking a wide prospect of land and ocean. The rector of this church was John Phillips, who came with Francis Chickering to Dedham in 1638, but in 1641 wcnt back and became one of the Assembly of Divines at Westrninster.

HENRY CHICKERING, born in 156o, and his five suns held land in Ringsfield, Bramfield, Westleton, and Henstead, as well as Wrentham. Francis was the executor of his father's will in 1627. The Chickerings are constantly mentioned in the early records of Dedham. They were the first delegates from this town to the General Court in Boston, along with Edward Alleyne. Henry Chickering acted as first deacon of the church. The town records say: “The Church at Dedham was without a deacon for. eleven years. This had been delayed on account of brother Chickcring's relation and affection to >Ir. Phillips in England. In 1650, June 23d, Brother Henry Chickering and Nathan Aldis were called to that office and ordained the next Sabbath.” Chickering remained deacon as long as he lived. He was always the devoted friend and helper of Rev. John Allin, the first minister, who had come from the same town. Henry Chickering's only son married the step­daughter of Mr. Allin, Elizabeth Hackburn, whose widowed mother had been the wife of Governor Thomas Dudley, and bore him a son when he was seventy years old. After the Governor's death, the widow took for her third husband Rev. Mr. Allin him­self, November 8, 1653, and her son Joseph Dudley was brought up here in Dedham, and became the second Governor Dudley. Thus John Chickering's wife was the step-daughter both of Gov­ernor Dudley and Rev. Mr. Allin. They moved to Charlestown, where the records say: “John Chickering and his wife Elizabeth were received into the Church here in 1664.”

Doctor Chickering was a useful and honoured physician in Charlestown for many years and there is a much-worn altar tomb to his memory in the oldest cemetery there, near the monument erected later to John Harvard. I suppose the main reason why John Chickering went to Charlestown was that his uncle Francis owned land and a house in Charlestown, perhaps before he came to Dedhnm, and Dr. John acquired this property of his uncle's, which lay in the part of Charlcstown near to Cambridge and had on it a wharf on the river opposite Boston. Francis Chickering was an Ensign in the English army and became in 1642 one of the earli­est zncnibers of the Ancient and Honourable Artillery Company. His wife was a sister of Rev. John Fiske, minister at Wenhatn. Both the Chickerings were much interested in the founding of thc first school in Dedhan in 1642. Francis was one of the first “feoffee's,” or trustees, and Henry left a legacy for it. Francis died suddenly in 1658 when he had been here twenty-one years. He left no will, but the inventory of his estate, which fills ten pages in the large folio record book in the Suffolk Registry of Probate, Boston, shows that he was a very prosperous man. He had a house and land in Dcdham, near the river, and, besidcs his property in Charlestown, he still owned an English estate at Henstead. He had no son who lived to grow up, but he left five daughters who married and have many descendants. Henry Chickering, who had no son except Dr. John, also bas many descendants in the fcmale line now living. He remained a resident of Dedham for thirty-four years, dying in 1671. His Will, which can be seen in Boston, is worth reading. He also left property in England.

The Chickerings were large landholders here. Rev. Dr. Lamson, an accurate historian, says: “Rev. John Allin owned more land in Dedhamn than any other man except. Henry Chickering. The holdings of the Chickering family amounted to as much as a thousand acres.” Part of this Chickering land lay in what is now called Dover. In his will Henry C. left a legacy to his nephew, whom he calls “my kinsman Nathaniel Chickering, now living with me,” and this Nathaniel, the son of Simon, became the ancestor of all the Chickerings afterwards living in Dedham and Dover.

A good deal more might be said about the early Chickerings, but this is enough to show that the ancestors of the Jabez Chicker­ing who married Dorothy Deborah Alleyne are worthy of esteem. He himself was the son of Rev. Jabez Chickering, the second min­ister of “the South parish,” now called Norwood. This Jabez was born in Dover, November 7, 1753. His parents were Joseph Chickering and Rebecca Newell. He was gsaduated at Harvard College in 1774 and became assistant to Rev. Thomas Balch, the first minister of Norwood. Not long afterwards he married Han­nah Balch, the daughter of Rev. Thomas, whom he succeeded in the parish, living there as minister for thirty years, until his death in 1812.
