Samuel B Gott1

M, b. 16 October 1677, d. 3 November 1748
     Samuel B Gott was weaver.2 He was born on 16 October 1677 at Wenham, Essex County, Massachusetts; probable son of Charles Gott and Lydia Clarke
"On the 25th of December following (1665) we find that Charles Gott married Lydia Clark, and the following record of their children: John, born the 8th or 9th month, 1668. He was probably the John Gott who married Rebecka Tarbox, of Lynn, onthe 19th of July 1693; Deborah, born October 6, 1670. Bethia, born July 16 1674." Then continuing, the same authority [Savage Genealogical Dictionary] say 'we believe that Samuel should have a place here, althought we have found no record of his birth.' Babson in his history of Gloucester says Samuel Gott died on the 3d of November 1748, aged about seventy-one years. Thus he was born about the year 1677 or 78."3,4 He married Margaret Andross at Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, on 26 June 1697.1,3 They resided at Gloucester, Essex County, Massachusetts, in 1702, at Halibut Point. "There is a deed recorded in which Lieutenant Charles Gott [Samuel's father] living at Wenham, 'gives to my loving sonne Samuel, living in the same town" etc., seven acres of land in Wenham, 'being part of my dwelling house lot.' The next important record bearing on the same subject is that Samuel Gott, yeoman, and Margaret, his wife, of Beverly, sold the above mentioned seven acres to Thomas Fiske, on July 31, 1702. His residence in Beverly was probably not more than temporary as nothing in relatin to his famiy is found on the records there. But 'we find at the registry office,' says Mr. Pool's narrative, 'the following in relation to the purchase of the tract of land near Halibut Point on Cape Ann in 1702: William Cogswell of Ipswich, yeoman, and Martha his wife, in consideration of the quanity of 60 pounds lawful money of New England paid by Samuel Gott, late of Wenham but now a resident of Gloucester in New England, weaver, convey all that my parcels of upland, lying and being in Gloucester, of about forty-eight acres, being eight six-acre lots lying upon the point usually called by the name of 'Hollybut point."
"Samuel Gott fixed his abode onthe lands deeded to him and became the head of a large family of children. IN 1872 the old homestead was still in possession of his descendants, one of whom was Captain Joshua Gott, a soldier of the revolution who diedin 1846, at the advanced age of ninety-two years.".3 Samuel B Gott witnessed the probate of the estate of William Andrews and Margaret Woodward between 12 March 1715/16 and 21 May 1716 at Essex County, Massachusetts; Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, Vol. IV, No 2, page 78 – Ensign William Andrews of Ipswich deceased intestate, the administration granted to his widow Margaret 12 Mar 1715/16 with Seth Story and Samuel Story sureties bond five hundred pounds on file.

Samuel Gott was residing in this town, Oc 23, 1702, when he bought of William Cogswell of Chebaco, for sixty pounds lawful money, eight six-acre lots lying upon Halibut Point, and fixed his abode in that remote section of the town. His wife was Margaret, dau of William Andrews of Ipswich. She died Oct 30, 1722, aged forty-six, and he married next, in 1723, Bethany Cogswell of Ipswich, who died April 23, 1755, aged sixty-seven. Mr. Gott died Nov. 3, 1748, about seventy-one years of age. He had a large family of children of which the names of five are mentioned in his will.' Babson, p. 246 Samuel Gott [settled] at Halibut Point, where he was the first known settler. His nearest neighbors on oen side were at Lane's Cove, and on the other, at Sandy Bay; both inconveniently distant for social intercourse or friendly offices in case of sudden need. . .The first, and for many years the only, neighbors of Samuel Gott, on the Sandy Bay side, were - William Andres, who owned land near his in 1707, and who was a brother of his wife; Joshua Norwood, who was also connected with him by marriage and had a large tractof land in that part of town, on which he settled, prob soon after Mr. Gott fixed his residence there; and Jethro Wheeler, who in 1712, bought of Joshua Norwood for one-hundred and fifty pounds, about one hundred acres of land nr.

Robert Fletcher1

M, b. 1592, d. 3 April 1677
     Robert Fletcher was christened on 1 November 1583 at Howden, County East Riding of Yorkshire, England; probably not the same Robert Fletcher, because he would have been 95 at death.2 He was born in 1592 at England; family tradition; no proof yet found; Fletcher 1871 says Robert was 38 when he arrived in 1630.1,3 He was Constable 1637, Farmer?1,4 He married Sarah Hartwell at County Essex, England, circa 1617.1,5 Robert Fletcher lived; England, Concord, MA.1 He immigrated in 1630 to Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts; "Robert settled at Concord, Mass in 1630, in which year seventeen ships arrived in Massachusetts Bay and at Plymouth. He had then three sons, Luke, William, and Samuel, and was himself thirty-eight years of age."6 He died on 3 April 1677 at Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts; ae 85; Ancestry.com says this record comes from Vital Records of Concord; don't know whether the age at death is recorded in Vital Records or not; Death date and place in The Wakefield Memorial, compiled by Homer Wakefield (1897), found at NHSL.7,3 He was buried at Concord, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.8 He Descendants of Robert Fletcher, by Edward H. Fletcher (1881; NHSL), p. 25 - 'Robert Fletcher, the immigrant ancestor from whom are reckoned the generations recorded in the following pages, was born in 1592, as appears from the record of his death found upon the town records of Concord, MA. The part of England whence he came has not been certainly ascertained. One circumstance has indicated Shropshire. The family tradition makes it Yorkshire, one of the northern counties of England. The name has been, and still is, common there. Rev. Elijah Fletcher of Hopkinton, NH (1747-1786), the first, so far as we know, who made genealogical collections of the family, believed taht our great ancestor came from Yorkshire; and that account was gathered when Robert's great-grandchildren were living. He settled at Concord, MA, in 1630; in which year seventeen ships arrived in Massachusetts Bay and at Plymouth, swelling the number of settlers to 21,000. He was then thirty-eight years of age, and had two sons, Luke and William, and it may be supposed a wife, and his daughter Cary. It was said by Gardner Fletcher that the tradition in his branch was that Robert had a brother William, who came at the same time. The only traces found of a William who could have been brother of Robert are two; one from the records of Middletown, CT; 'Rev Samuel Stow m Hope, dau of William Fletcher, Esq, of Chelmsford, 1649' ; and the other relates to William of Saco, ME (p. 508). It was five years later that Concord was organized, the twentieth town incorporated within what are now the limits of MA, and his name appears in the earliest records of taht town. In the court files of Middlesex county his name frequently occurs as petitioner for bridges, as juryman, &c. He was a wealthy and influential man, and died at Concord, April 3, 1677, ae 85. Issue -- i. Luke, b in England; d in Concord MA May 21, 1665; probably unm; ii. William; iii. Cary; m. --- Kebby; iv. Samuel; v. Francis. Robert Fletcher settled in Concord, Mass., and was appointed constable there in 1637.) There is no reference to this Robert Fletcher in Coldham's 'Complete Book of Emigrants' vol 1.- John Chandler Here are my sources for Robert FLETCHER having come in 1630: FLETCHER FAMILY HISTORY by Edward H. Fletcher, 1881, Rand, Avery & Co., Boston, p. 26, states that a petition dated 1645 copied from Shattuck's history of Concord was 10 years after the organization of the town and 15 years after the arrival of Robert FLETCHER. SNOW-ESTES ANCESTRY, by Nora E. Snow (1939) Vol.?, p. ? (failed to note) 'Robert FLETCHER setted in Concord in 1630 five years before the town was organized. His name appears on the ealiest town records (in Middlesex county files). BURKES' AMERICAN FAMILIES WITH BRITISH ANCESTRY, Genealogical Pub.

Savage shays he was of Concord in 1635. His son Samuel was supposed to have been born in Concord in 1632 but there is no record of the birth (since the town was not yet organized). I'm not saying these are all upstanding sources, but they are sources for the 1630 date of arrival. John B. Threlfall, in some personal communication with me sent a piece he wrote about Robert FLETCHER which states: Robert FLETCHER was born in England about 1592. He was among the first settlers of Concord, coming to New England perhaps as early as 1630 in which year the Winthrop fleet of seventeen ships arrived at Boston. ... The first record of him seems to be on 2 November 1637 when he was made constable of Concord. I don't know that he made it into THE GREAT MIGRATION BEGINS by Robert Charles Anderson, which covers all arrivals prior to 1633. Barb Petty bpetty@erols.com Hi again Gary- Did you see the post from B. Petty on the Fletcher list? She mentions the Winthrop Fleet sailing into Boston in 1630. I went to Cyndi's site, ships, then scrolled pretty far to the Winthrop Fleet. One of these didn't work for me, but the other listed all the Winthrop ships, passengers, etc. Robert Fletcher not mentioned but seems likely he was on one of these ships. Gail http://pw2.netcom.com/~mj_roman/fletcher.htm THE FLETCHER FAMILY ROBERT FLETCHER [#992], b. England abt. 1592, d. Concord, MA April 3, 1677 aged 85. Robert Fletcher was most likely born in England around 1592 as his will, dated 1672, gives his age then as about 80 years.[6/4:264] The name of his wife and mother of his children is unknown, but she was living when Robert made his will on Feb. 4, 1672 but had died by May 12, 1677 when the will was proved. The surname comes from 'Fledger', which is the name of the trade of making arrows. It is believed that Robert came from Yorkshire, a county in which the name is fairly common.[2/1] Rev. Elijah Fletcher is said to have been the first member of the family to make an attempt to gather family records, and he believed his immigrant ancestor came from Yorkshire. As Elijah lived at a time when Robert's own great grandchildren were alive, this idea is worthy of notice.[2/1] With the exception of Henry Fletcher of Reading, Robert was the only Fletcher in Middlesex County at the time. There is no proof that he was related to Henry or any other early Fletcher settler. Robert was certainly living in Concord by 1637 and may have been there from 1635 when the town was first established. There is no evidence that he lived anywhere but in Concord, and he probably went there directly from England between 1635 and 1637.[2/2] Concord is about twenty miles northwest of Boston. It was the first settlement in New England above tide water and was described as being 'away up in the woods', when on Sept. 2, 1635 the plantation at Musketaquid was granted as the town of Concord by the General Court of Massachusetts Bay. In October of the same year, Rev. John Jones with some settlers arrived in Boston, destined for the new plantation. Unfortunately the original petition and deed are missing. The church records prior to 1738 are also lost, and so a valuable source of data is closed.[2/2] The first mention of Robert Fletcher is contained in the Massachusetts Bay Colony Records. In court held 291637 at Newtowne (i.e. Cambridge) Robert Fletcher was chosen and sworn constable of Concord.[4/1:206] In order to be chosen constable, it would seem that a man would have to be fairly well known to the town's people and to the court, and this seems rather conclusive evidence that Robert was amongst the earliset settlers in Concord. Two years later there was mention of Robert Fletcher again, the record being found in both the Court of Assistants and in the Colony Records, under the date of June 4, 1639, when he was discharged, being found not faulty. What the charge was is not given in either source.[2/23] In 1644 a number of inhabitants of Concord went with Rev. Jones to Connecticut, leaving the town much depopulated, so much so, that those remaining asked the General Court to abate their taxes. Inasmuch as Robert Fletcher was one of those who signed the petition, hence did not have sympathy with Jones and his party, it seems possible that he did not come over from England with Jones[2/3] In 1655 a new town book was purchased by the town of Concord to supplant the old one, all the inhabitants being required to enter their holdings in the same. Francis Fletcher is recorded as having 17 lots of 437 acres, in the eastern quarter of the town. Robert did not record any holdings. Although the present earliest book of town records for Concord begins in 1653, there is but one mention of Robert's lands, that being March 5, 1662. It was about this time that nearly all the inhabitants entered their holdings in the Concord Records, but there is no mention of Robert's lands, not even as a boundary. As his son Francis, the only son to remain in Concord, entered his lands in 1666, it is to be assumed that Robert had given his lands to his son by that year. Francis' land is often mentioned as a boundary.[2/9] Other records mentioning Robert may be of interest: A petition to the General Court dated May 17, 1658, asking for the privilege of trade with the Indians, was signed by thirty-three inhabitants of Chelmsford, among them William Fletcher and Robert Fletcher. According to testimony made in 1683, and a copy presented at that time, Robert Fletcher was one of a Concord committee to lay out Major Simon Willard's enormous farm, May 21, 1660. March 14, 1660-1 a call was made to the freemen of Concord - that Robert Fletcher and Ensign Joseph Wheeler serve on the jury. Also a warning to both for not attending to the laying out of a highway. A petition was presented April 2, 1661 by Robert Fletcher 'in the name of the rest' about William Borden, a brick maker, who had been warned out of town and had returned 'with what he calls his wife'.[2/89] A Luke Fletcher of Concord died intestate in 1665, and as Robert was the administrator of his estate, it seems logical to assume that Luke was his son, although the possibility that there was some other relationship must be borne in mind.[2/9] Robert Fletcher's will was dated Feb. 4, 1672 and mentioned his wife (not named), son Francis and his wife (not named), and sons William and Samuel. As the eldest son, Francis received a double share and was also made executor. Overseers were 'my trusty and loveing friends Deacon Robert Mirriam, Deacon Luke Potter of Concord'. The will was witnessed by John Hoare and Nathaniel Stow and proved June 19, 1677.[6/4:264] REF: [1] The Fletcher Genealogy - Edward Fletcher, 1871 [2] The Fletcher Manuscript - Winifred Lovering Holman, 1952 (found at NEHGS, 101 Newbury St. Boston) [3] Concord Town Records [4] Massachusetts Bay Colony Records [5] Middlesex County Court Files [6] Middlesex County Probate (First Series Docket 7913) [7] Massachusetts Archive (119:19) [8] Ancestors of American Presidents - Gary Boyd Roberts, 1989 (pg.24) Children: 1.

No one knows. Robert certainly may have been buried in the old
graveyard in the center of town, but, if so, his grave marker has not

Since there is no known evidence pointing to Robert Fletcher's place of
origin, and since there is no reason to suppose his only known daughter
was named after her mother, it should be clear that the name of any wife
he had back home is quite unknown. Indeed, Robert's will written in
1672/3 does mention a wife, but doesn't give her name, nor any
indication of whether or not she was the mother of the children
mentioned in the will. Needless to say, it is extremely unlikely that a
man would be born and married in the same year. The only clue I know of
to the identity of Robert's wife is the will of William Hartwell, also
of Concord, which mentioned Francis Fletcher (son of Robert) as a
"cousin" in 1689. This may mean that the mother of Francis was William
Hartwell's sister or that William's wife was Robert Fletcher's sister,
but it may not.
