Thomas Perley Jr1,2

M, b. 27 September 1669, d. November 1745
     Thomas Perley Jr was born on 27 September 1669 at Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts.1,3,2 He married Sarah Osgood circa 1695 at Essex County, Massachusetts.2 He witnessed Sarah Osgood's death at Boxford, Essex County, Massachusetts, on 23 September 1724.2 Thomas Perley Jr married Elizabeth Hathorne Porter, daughter of Israel Porter and Elizabeth Hathorne, on 15 May 1727 at Boxford, Essex County, Massachusetts.1 Thomas Perley Jr died on 25 December 1742 at Boxford, Essex County, Massachusetts, at age 73.3 He died in November 1745 at Boxford, Essex County, Massachusetts, at age 76; Thomas Perley, Jr
Birth:
Sep. 27, 1669
Rowley
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA

Death:
Nov., 1745
Boxford
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA


Note: there is no extant grave marker for Thomas here. However, his father, he, and his son Asa all lived in the same house in Boxford. Asa is buried here with a surviving grave stone, and since his father and grandfather lived in the same house, they are almost certainly buried in the same cemetery.

Thomas was the son of Lt. Thomas Perley and Lydia Peabody of Rowley and Boxford, Mass.. He m. (1) c. 1695 Sarah OSGOOD, b. Andover 4 Nov 1675, d. Boxford 23 Sep 1724, the daughter of John Osgood and Mary Clement. Thomas m. (2) Boxford 15 May 1727 Elizabeth (PORTER) Putnam, b. 18 Feb 1672/3, d. Oct 1746, the widow of Joseph Putnam and daughter of Israel Porter and Elizabeth Hathorne. Elizabeth was the mother of the famous General Israel Putnam of Revolutionary War fame. The general was only eight years old when his mother married Thomas Perley, so he likely spent much time in his youth at the Perley homestead in Boxford.

Thomas was a Captain in the local militia, and was titled that in many records. He lived in the house that his father built around 1684, and when his father died in 1709, the house was bequeathed to him. He held several positions of public responsibility, and was a Boxford representative in the colonial legislature on many occasions from 1702 to 1719.

Thomas's will was dated 1 Sep 1745 and proved 25 Nov 1745, leaving most property to his two surviving sons, Thomas and Asa. Young Thomas was given the property known later as the Cleaveland farm, and Asa received the homestead. A private account gives Thomas's death date as 13 Nov 1745, which is reasonable based on his will dates, but his death is recorded in Boxford without a date. Children of Thomas and Sarah, all born Boxford:

* Lydia, b. 21 June 1696

* Mary, b. 16 May 1697, bapt Topsfield 5 Sep 1697, d. Ipswich 26 March 1738, m. Boston 13 Dec 1717 John BAKER, b. Topsfield 6 Jan 1690/1, d. Ipswich 1 Aug 1734, son of Thomas Baker and Priscilla Symonds. Mary and Thomas both have surviving grave markers in the Old Burying Ground in Ipswich.

* Hepzibah, born 1699, m. Boxford, Mass. 8 Nov 1723 Thomas REDINGTON, Jr., b. Boxford, Mass. 1 April 1693, d. 1755, the son of Thomas Redington and Mary Kimball of Boxford. Hepzibah and Thomas are buried in the South Cemetery in Lunenburg, Mass.

* Moses, b. Boxford 11 Dec 1701 (the Boxford vital record does not give his name), d. there 9 Nov [year lost, but it's either 1702 or 1703].

* Sarah, bapt. Boxford 19 Sep 1703, living in 1745, m. (int Andover 17 April 1725) Dane ROBINSON, Jr., b. Andover (date lost, but c. 1702 based on d. record), d. Boxford 2 May 1779, aged 77, son of Dane Robinson and Mercy Chadwick of Andover and Boxford. Sarah was presumed living close to the time that her daughter Susanna was baptized in Boxford on 23 Feb 1745/6.

* Thomas, b. 22 Feb 1704/5, d. Boxford 28 Sep 1795, m. Boxford 20 Sep 1731 Eunice PUTNAM, b. Salem 13 April 1710, d. Boxford 2 Feb 1787, daughter of Joseph Putnam and Elizabeth Porter. They had eight known children b. 1732 to 1755. Eunice has a surviving grave marker in the Harmony Cemetery in Boxford.

* Mehetable, b. 26 June 1708, baptized Topsfield "20 June 1708", so one of these two dates has an error in it. She d. Boxford 14 Oct 1723.

* Rebecca, b. 29 Oct 1710, d. 1790, per some private accounts, but I find no evidence. She was living in 1767 when named in her husband's will. She m. Ipswich 14 Feb 1728/9 (also recorded in Salem and Boxford) David PUTNAM, b. Salem 25 Oct 1707, d. Danvers 1769, son of Joseph Putnam and Elizabeth Porter. They had ten children born 1730 to 1754. In several accounts, David has been given the title/rank of "Col.", but I find no record of military service for him. He was apparently the brother of the famed Revolutionary War general, Israel Putnam. David called himself of Danvers in his will, dated 16 Nov 1767 and proved 5 June 1769. Private accounts give his death as being in March 1768, but based on the probate of his will, March 1769 would make more sense. Rebecca was only 58 years of age when her husband died, but I find no records of a possible remarriage, nor any record of her death.

* Allen, b. 14 April 1714

* Asa, b. 10 Oct 1716, d. Boxford 10 April 1806, aged 89, m. (1) Boxford 31 Jan 1737/8 Susanna LOW, b. c. 1718, d. 15 Jan 1762 (per History of Boxford). She may have been the Susannah Low, daughter of Daniel and Susanna Low, baptized at Ipswich 1:7m:1717 (1 Sep 1717). Asa m. (2) Danvers 12 Aug 1762 (but recorded in Boxford VR) Apphia (PUTNAM) Porter, b. Salem 8 July 1716, d. 28 Dec 1780 (per History of Boxford), daughter of Dea. Eleazer Putnam and Elizabeth Rolfe (the vital record is in error in calling her mother Hannah Boardman). She had married first (int 27 Oct 1733) John Porter, b. 1712, d. 1759, the son of Benjamin Porter and Hannah Endicott, and with him had nine children (see Putnam Gen). Asa m. (3) Bradford 8 Dec 1781 Mrs. Ruth Kimball of Bradford (Boxford VR). It is possible that Ruth was the Ruth Head who m. Bradford 22 Oct 1741 Thomas Kimball, the son of Thomas Kimball and Elizabeth Chadwick. Deacon Thomas Kimball died in Bradford 26 Sep 1780 in his 62d year, which fits nicely with the 2 Dec 1781 marriage of Ruth Kimball to Asa Perley. Asa lived with his large family in his father's house, and upon his father's death in 1745 the property became his. Sometime about 1760, he took down the old house and erected a mansion. He served as a selectman for the town, and in the years 1771, 1772, 1780, and 1781 he represented Boxford in the General Court. He was also a member of the Provincial Congress in 1775. Asa had eleven children, all with his first wife, and born from 1738 to 1760. Seven of his sons served during the American Revolutionary War. Asa and his third wife, Ruth, are known to be buried in the Harmony Cemetery in Boxford. His first wife is likely buried there as well, but his second wife may be buried with her first husband, with whom she had many children. Asa has an extant grave marker; it is uncertain if Ruth's is still standing. Upon Asa's death, the family homestead was passed to his son, Samuel.
