Ancestors of Tim Farr and The Descendants of Stephen Farr


John ADAMS 1 died 2 in 1633 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States. John married 3, 4 Eleanor NEWTON about 1625 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States.

The following is from the CD version of "The Great migration Begins" by Robert Charles Anderson:

ORIGIN:  Unknown
MIGRATION:  1621 on Fortune
FIRST RESIDENCE:  Plymouth

FREEMAN:  In "1633" Plymouth list of freemen, John Adams appears ahead of those persons admitted on 1 January 1632/3 [PCR 1:3].
ESTATE:  In the 1623 Plymouth land division John Adams was granted one acre, as a passenger on the Fortune [PCR 12:5].  In the 1627 Plymouth cattle division John Adams, "Eliner Adams," and James Adams were the second, third and fourth persons in the sixth company [PCR 12:11].

With four others, John Adams was on 1 July 1633 assigned to mow where Mr. Gilson had mowed the year before [PCR 1:14].  John Adams was assessed 9s. in the tax list of 25 March 1633, and "Widow Adams" was assessed the same amount on 27 March 1634 [PCR 1:10, 28].

On 24 October 1633 John Winslow and John Jenny took an inventory of the goods of John Adams; the total was £71 14s., of which £37 10s. was in neat cattle [MD 1:157-58].  The inventory was presented at court on 11 November 1633, and the widow Ellen Adams was named adminstratrix, the deceased having left no will; she was bound in the sum of £140, John Barnes surety, to provide £5 apiece to her three children by John Adams - James, John and Susan - when they came of age, if she should choose to remarry [PCR 1:19].  The payment to son James, made by Kenelm Winslow, was recorded on 26 December 1651 [PCR 2:176].
DEATH:  Between 1 July 1633 (assignment of mowing ground) and 24 October 1633 (date of inventory).
MARRIAGE:  About 1625 ELLEN NEWTON (this identification, long in print, is based on the fact that she is the only Ellen in the 1623 land division, and there was no other known addition to the Plymouth population in the next few years); she married second in June 1634 KENELM WINSLOW [PCR 1:30], and was buried at Marshfield 5 December 1681 "being 83 years old" (probably an inflated age) [MarVR 13].
CHILDREN:
i  JAMES, b. before 22 May 1627; m. Scituate 15 or 16 June or 16 July 1646 Frances Vassall, daughter of WILLIAM VASSALL [ScVR 2:11; PCR 2:108; 8:19].
ii  JOHN, b. after 22 May 1627; m. (1) Marshfield 27 December 1654 Jane James [MarVR 1]; m. (2) by 10 December 1666 Elizabeth _____ [TAG 55:214].
iii  SUSAN, b. after 22 May 1627; no further record.
COMMENTS:  The best treatment in print of John Adams and his two sons is Robert S. Wakefield, "Men of the Fortune: John Adams," TAG 55 (1979):212-14.  (An earlier account is in NEHGR 33 [1879]:410-13.)

Banks has published some records for the name John Adams in London, but none of these can be connected with John Adams of Plymouth [Pilgrim Fathers 105].

Eleanor NEWTON 1 was born 2 in 1598 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States. She died 3, 4 on 5 Dec 1681 in Marshfield, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States.

ELLEN, b. say 1636; m. Marshfield 20 [December 1656 Samuel Baker] (the marriage record as published is missing all but the name of the bride and the day of the event; the month and the year are suggested by the preceding marriage record, which was for November 1656, and the date of birth of the first child, on 23 March 1657/8 [MarVR 2, 4]).  On 7 March 1653/4 "Kanelme Winslow complained against John Soule for speaking falsely of and scandalizing his daughter in carrying diverse false reports betwixt Josias Standish and her; the which complaint, at the request of G[e]orge Soule, father of the said John Soule, was referred until another Court, to be tried by a jury of twelve of his equals" [PCR 3:46-47].

From this deposition we learn that Samuel3 Little (Ann2 Warren, Richard1) was born about the year
1657.

On the grave stone of Capt. Nathaniel Winslow at Marshfield it is stated that he died 1 December, 1719, in the eighty-first year of his age. If his birth occurred in the year 1639 this statement does not conflict with that in the deposition.

Peter was listed as "Gentleman" in several documents and he was a member of the Town Council of Preston, Lancashire, England, which is located about 5 miles from Clayton. He leased a shop in the Guild Hall, located next to the Preston Market Place, on 1 Oct 1617. He was last recorded in Preston on 21 Jan 1629, when, according to the early archives of Preston Borough, he loaned 8 shillings to the Borough for a project concerned with common lands. In 1630 the Plague, which had already ravaged London, struck Preston, and 1,069 people out of a population of 3000 died within the year. Peter and his son, Peter, and their families probably left Preston because of the plague, as did many of the other survivors, because he next appears in the American Colonies in the mid 1630s. It is believed that he first settled in Lynn, MA before moving to Yarmouth in 1639. In "The History of Old Yarmouth", by Charles F. Swift, the following: "At the extreme easterly part of the Town, Peter Worden the elder and younger have established themselves, in spite of the opposition of some of their associates, and here the former died the first year of settlement." His will was probated on 5 Mar 1639. It is the first will printed in the Plymouth Court Records. In his will he left most of his real and personal property in both England and America to his son, Peter Worden. Both he and his son are buried in the Worden Cemetery, overlooking Cape Cod Bay, south side of Route 6A in the town of Dennis near the border of the town of Brewster.

Peter's will was made on 9 Feb 1639 and proved 9 Mar 1639. It is believed that he was about 70 at the time of his death.
