Lt. John Andrews1

M, b. 1621, d. 20 April 1708
     Lt. John Andrews was born in 1621 at Norwich, County Norfolk, England; "John Andrews, born 1621 in England" Andrews 2009 desc.
AFN:2076-W8 says "of Norwich, Norfolk, England." Others have him born between 1618 and 1621; NEHGR 70:102 says "about 1621" and notes that "He deposed in 1701, aged 80." Wainwright says born "abt 1621 in England" citing H. Franklin Andrews "History of the Andrews Family" (1890) and Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700 (1995).2,3,4,5 He "Abraham Hammatt,the genealogist of early Ipswich families states that John Andrews of Ipswich was a soldier in the war against the Pequot Indians in 1637, and for that service was granted eight acres of land by the town" Andrews 2009 desc.2,6 He lived between 1637 and 1642 at Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts; of Ipswich, MA 1642 - GenHist John & Mary Andrews (NHSL) and Savage
1st in Ips rec 1637. Lived inChebacco.7 He lived in 1640 at Kittery, York County, Maine; may not be the same John as John of Lynn and Ipswich.7 He and Sarah Conant Some sources have John Andrews marrying Sarah Conant. However, NEHGR 70 102 has Lt. John's wife as "Jane Jordan." For the moment I (Gary Rolph Oct 03) have concluded that Lt. John is the husband of Jane Jordan, not Sarah Conant. in 1645 at Essex County, Massachusetts.8 He married Jane Jordan at Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, in 1645.2,5 Lt. John Andrews lived in 1650 at Lynn, Essex County, Massachusetts; may be he wh. was a baker and d at Ipswich 13 Mar 1662 and his w Sarah d 29 Apr 1666.7 He was "He was a house carpenter and probably a farmer and lived in Chebacco parish, now Essex, Massachusetts, but his exact plae of abode is not positively known" between 1650 and 1677 at Essex, Essex County, Massachusetts.6 He died on 13 March 1662; This may be the death date of another "John Andrews."9 In Stephen Jordan's will on 5 April 1667 at Newbury, Essex County, Massachusetts, Susannah, Susannah, Stephen, John and Elizabeth was named as an heir.10 He was fined and imprisoned for resisting the arbitrary measures of Sir Edmund Andros, Colonial Governor of New England, 1687. From Gen History of John Andrews and also Savage
Resisted Andros tax, arrested, tried in Boston, imprisoned.
"He was honorably connected with that outbreak of independence which led the inhabitants of Ipswich in 1687 to resist the order of Sir Edmund Andros and his council for levying a tax on the King's subjects, viz, "a penny in the pound on all Estates personal or real, twenty pence per head as Poll Money," etc. (Andros Tracts, vol 1, p. 81, published by the Prince Society). John Andrews was at that time chairman of the selectmen of Ipswich, and John Appleton was town clerk. They , with John Wise, the minister, and others, called a meeting, at which the command of the Governor to choose a commissioner to assist in assessing the tax, was discussed; and at the town meeting the next day (23 Aug) the town considered that by the laws of England it was enacted "that no Taxes should be levied upon the Subjects without consent of an Assembly chosen by the Freeholders" (Ib, p. 84). For this act of the town Mr. Wise, John Andrews, John Appleton, Willam Goodhue, Robert Kinsman, and Thomas French were arrested, brought before the court at Boston; and tried; and "that they might be sure to be found guilty, Jurors were picked of such as were no Freeholders, nay of Strangers; the Prisoners pleading the privilige of Englishmen not to be taxed without their own consent; they were told that the Laws of England would not follow them to the end of the Earth. . .for the penalties they resolved should follow them quo jure quaque injuria;" that they had no right to claim the privelges of Englishmen, "when it had been declared in the Governorus Council, that the Kings Subjects in New England did not differ much from Slaves, and that the only difference was, that they were not bought and sold. . .IN as much as the Prisoners mentioned had asserted their English liberties, they were severely handled, not only imprisoned for several weeks, but fined and bound to their good behavior." (Ib, p. 82). This act of resistance has been called "the foundation of American Democracy," and was the beginning of those events which eighty-eight years later culminated in the Revolutionary War. It is commemorated in the seal of the town oof Ipswich, which bears the motto, "The Birthplace of American Independence 1687." (NEHGR 70, 103).7,2 He & 4 sons signed pet. to save John Proctor and wife in witchcraft delusion (NEHGR vl 70).
Petition on behalf of John Proctor & his wife
accused of Witch Craft in Salem

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The Humble and Sincere Declaration of us, Subscribers, Inhabitants in Ipswich, on the Behalf of our Neighbors, John Proctor and his wife, now in Trouble and under Suspicion of Witchcraft.

"To The Honorable Court Of Assistants Now Sitting In Boston

"Honored and Right Worshipful,- The aforesaid John Proctor may have great reason to justify the Divine Sovereignty of God under these severe remarks of Providence, upon his peace and honor, under a due reflection upon his life past; and so the best of us have reason to adore the great pity and indulgence of God's providence, that we are not exposed to the utmost shame that the Devil can invent, under the permissions of sovereignty, though not for that sin forenamed, yet for our many transgressions. For we do at present suppose, that it may be a method within the severer but just transactions of the infinite majesty of God, that he sometimes permit Sathan to peronate, dissemble, and thereby abuse innocents and such as do, in the fear of God, defy the Devil and all his works. Thew great rage he is permitted to attempt holy Job with; the abuse he does the famous Samuel in disquieting hissilent dust, by shadowing his venerable person in answer to the charms of witchcraft; and other instances from good hands,- may be arguments. Besides the unsearchable footsteps of God's judgements, that are brought to light every morning, that astonish our weaker reasons; to teach us adoration, trembling, dependence, &c. But we must not trouble Your Honors by being tedious.Therefore, being smitten with the notice of what hath happened, we reckon it within the duties of our charity that teacheth us do as we would be done by, to offer thus much for clearing of our neighbors' innocency; viz., that we never had the least knowledge of such a nefandous wickedness in our said neighbors, since they have been our acquaintance. Neither do we remember any such thoughts in us concerning them, or ant action by them or either of them, directly tending that way, no more than might be in the lives of any persons of the clearest reputation as top any such evils. What God may have left them to, we cannot go into God's pavilion clothed with clouds of darkness round about; but, as to what we have ever seen or heard of them, upon our consciences we judge them innocent of the crime objected. His breeding hath amongst us, and was of religious parents in our place, and, by reason of relations and properties within our town, hath had constant intercourse with us. We speak upon our personal acquaintance and observations; and so leave our neighbors, and this testimony on their behalf, to the wise thoughts of Your Honors.

John Andrews was also known as John Andrews.

In Reply to: Lt. John Andrews genealogy by Phil Petropoulos of 4734.12 He The IGI and both have this John as a son of Robert and father of John. However, I do not believe this is possible, because the other John (supposedly his son), was born about the same time as John! I don't think this John is a son of Robert, but have put him here until we get more info. Prob a son of a brother of Roberts. , p. 10, has a John Andrews in Ipswich 1639. Perhaps a brother of Robert? Also a Richard Andrews in 1643. Another brother of Robert? will of Robert Andrews, 1 Mar 1643, proved 26 Mar 1644, names eldest son 'John Andrews,' 'not yet of age,' with Thomas Howlitt as guardian, yet wants John to be executor -- prob indicates he is in late teenage moved to Lynn where he owned 'The White House' -- email from demarco@ix.netcom.com.9,1 He Lieut.

He married Jane, dau of Stephen Jordan of Newbury, Mass., carpenter and farmer. Soldier in the Pequot Indian war 1637. Lieut. in the Training Band 1683. of Norwich, Norfolk, England -- Diantha Howard - Depos 1701 age 80. Soldier in Pequot War. email quoting from the Hovey book, p. xii - 'The family of the Captain must have included our colonial grandmother, Abigail, who was married to Daniel Hovey six years later. John, mentioned in the will as the eldest son, must have been a survivor of that shipwreck. Hammatt states that the latter was in the Pequot War, being first Corporal, then Lieutenant. He moderated the town meeting, August 23, 1687, when sturdy resistance was made to the tyrant, Sir Edmund Andros, who violated terms of the charter of the colony by levying taxes without consent of the General Court. In memory of that event the seal of Ipswich bears the motto: 'The Birthplace of American Independence, 1687.' A memorial brochure of 16 pages has been published concerning this heroic Lieutenant, by Hon. H. F. Andrews, in 1909, expressing doubt as to his relationship to our Captain Robert Andrewes, of whom he may have been a brother instead of a son. The authority above quoted is of the opinion that the name of Andrewes ceased with John Andrewes of Salem, a shipwright, who was the grandson of Captain Robert, and had three daughters and no sons. We certainly hope this conjecture (which honesty requires us to give for what it may be worth) is groundless; for the descendants of Lieut. John Andrewes now number many thousands and have intermarried with many of the best families of Essex county and elsewhere' signed Horace Carter Hovey, (prob 1913).

E. Shipman, died at her residence on Bloomer Prairie, Sunday, Mar 2, 1884. The deceased was born in Ohio in 1825 and was 58 years old. She and ehr husband came to Bloomer 25 years ago and made a farm upon which they resided up to her death. She was the mother of five children, three of whom are alive and were constantly with her during her sickness. She was sick about four weeks during which time her suffering was severe. Her health has been failing a good many years and death was not unlooked for by her husband and children, yet it casts the shadow of gloom over the household in which the entire community sympathetically responds. She was one of our oldest and most respected settlers, and was a good, kind and faithful wife, a loving mother and a good neighbor. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Wm Priddy in the Congregational Church and after which a large concorse of people most of who were old neighbors and friends followed the remains to the Bloomer cemetary where the last sad tribute of respect and duty was performed.1'

William Vassall1

FatherJohn Vassall1 b. 1544, d. Sep 1625
MotherAnna Russell1 b. bt 1550 - 1560, d. 5 May 1593
     William Vassall was born on 27 August 1592 at Stepney, Middlesex, England.1 He was listed as 'gentleman' in Winthrop Fleet -- Albions Seed.1 He married Anna King on 9 June 1613 at England; License dated London England.1 William Vassall lived; England, Scituate, MA, Barbados.1 William, as the father of the bride, attended Judith Vassall and Resolved White's wedding at Scituate, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, on 5 November 1640.2,3 They witnessed an unknown person 's death at Plymouth County, Massachusetts, on 19 January 1657. Ancestors (Colonial) has "he died on 19 Jan 1651" citing Justin Winsor, "Abstract of the Earliest Wills in the Probate Office, Plymoth,"NEHGR 4, 1850, 320.
[John Adams of Plymouth?] citation says 1653 at sea; age 30; however, later in same citation says: "In 2/18/1656 James signed papers to help settle the estate of William Vassall" (NE Hist & Gen Register 1/1863, p. 57).. NEHGR 1879 says that Marcia Thomas' "Memorials of Marshfield" wrote "James Adams died at sea, on board the good ship James, 16 Jan 1651," but CBE (in NEHGR 1879) says "the year must be an error, perhaps a typographical one, as he had a child born in March 1654. Savage (i.10) gives this date "19 Jan 1653." Perhaps 19 Jan 1654?.4,5,6 The parentage of Judith is clearly shown in a deed of 18 July 1657 in which she, as wife of Resolved White, sells land bequeathed to her as daughter of 'William Vassall heretofore of Scituate and late of Barbados, deceased, by a will dated 13 July 1655. on 18 July 1657.2 William Vassall died between 31 July 1665 and 7 August 1665 at Barbados; will dated 31 Jul 1665; proved 7 Aug 1655; age 65 years [sic].1,4 He left a will on 8 May 1666; Nicholas appointed executer of the estate of William Vassall (Jim Brown has date 8 May 1656 but that would be before will was written.)4 He '. . .William Vassall of Scituate, a man of wealth who came to New England in 1630 with Gov. Winthrop, returned to England and came a second time in 1635 in the ship 'Blessing' with his wife Ann and children. . . .' Source Wheeler Gen, p. 6 William Vassall, 'who lived in Scituate, close to Hingham, and who was a man 'always opposite to the civil governments of this country and the way of our Churches' (Winthrop Journal II 163), gathered a group of non-members and proposed to petition the Courts both of lymouth and Massachusetts and '(if that succeded not) then to the Parliament of England, that the distinctions which were maintained here, both in civil and church estate, might be taken away, and that we might be wholly governed by the laws of England.' (Orthodoxy in MA) 1646 Synod formed. William Vassall went to England 1646 taking petition with him. In London 1647 'The parentage of Judith is clearly shown in a deed of 18 July 1657 in which she, as wife of Resolved White, sells land bequeathed to her as duaghter of William Vassall 'heretofore of Scituate and late of Barbados deceased, by a will dated 13 July 1655.' (William White p. 99) NEHGR April 1955, 'Alderman John Vassall and his descendants,' p. 94ff -- William Vassall. . .the first of his name who went t America, was an assistant in the MA Bay Co and one of the original patentees of NE lands. At a formal meeting of the Governor and Company, held in July 1629, he, with others, was appointed to 'go over,' which he did, but returned to England after a short stay in the ship Lyon. On 17-20 June 1635 he again embarked with his wife Ann, five daughters and one son, on board the Blessing, Jo Lecester, master, for New England. Upon his arrival in that country it would seem that he settled first in Roxbury, for int he Church Registry of that town is th following entry made by tghe Rev. John Eliot in his account of the church members -- 'Mrs. Anna Vassaile -- the wife of Mr. William Vassaile. Her husband brought fie children to this land, Judith, Franes, John, Margaret, Mary' (This is an error as there were six children, and in the following order -- Judith, 16, Frances 12, Jno 10, Ann 6, Margaret 2, and Mary 1 as appears in the list of the passengers of the Blessing on that voyage). How long he remained in Roxbury is not known. ON 28 Nov 1636 he was connected with the church in Scituate, in Plymouth County, in which town, Deane says, he erected a house in 1635 on land 'laid out to hiim by order of the Court; and which he called West Newland'. He took the oath of fidelity in Scituate on 1 Feb 1638. In Dec 1639 a licence was granted to im 'to make an oyster bed in North River,' before his house. In 1642 he was chosen one of a council of war, aggressions having been threatened by the Narragansetts, and in 1643 his name appears in the militia roll. IN 1644/5 he was prominently concerned in the division of the church in Scituate and the settlement of Mr. Witherell over the disaffected portion, against the advice and protestations of the churches in Plymouth and Marshfield. The separation of the churches arose partially from the views held by its pastor, the Rev. Charles Chauncey, upon the ordinance of baptism, with whom Mr. Vassall had early disputes on doctrinal points. For an interesting discussion on the subject see Deane's Scituate. In 1646 he sailed for England in the Supply in aid of a petition for the redress of wrongs in the government and never returned. In 1648 he removed to Barbados and there he died in 1655, aged 65 years. His will is dated in Barbados, 13 Jul 1655, and he described himself as 'now resident in this Island.' It was proved 12 Jul 1657. IN it he names 'son-in-law Nichs Ware and his wife Anna my Daur; my daughter Margaret Vassall and my daughter Mary Vassall; my son Jno; my Daurs Judith wife of Resolved White, Frances the wife of James Adams; Anna the wife of Nichs Ware, Margaret and Mary Vassall. My Esate and Effects to be equally divided between them. My son John sole Executor.' On 8 May 1656 Capt Joshua Hubbard of Hingham was apponted attorney for the sale of the Scituate estate by virtue of two writings, one signed by Resolved White and James Adams on 18 Feb 1656, and the other by Margaret and Mary Vassall 3 Mar 1655/6. The estate was conveyed by Joshua Hubbard to John Cusen and Mathyas Briggs for £120 and consisted of about 120 acres, with house and barns. The deed was signed by Joshua Hubbard, Resolved White and Judith his wife, and James Adams, 18 Jul 1657.'

Gov Endicot was sent over by the Co to prosecute the plantation (Cradock acting as Governor in England) in 1628. Mr. Wm Vassall was one of Cradock's assistants. In 1631 a complaint was sent home against the administration of Endicott,a nd Wm and Samuel Vassall chosen referees on part of complainents and Winthrop and Johnson on part of company. Mr. Vassall had made a short trip to this country in 1630, prob w Gov Winthrop, who arri 12 Jun 1630, but returned same summer, sailing about the end of July. The fact of his having been chosen a referee of the cause of the Browns, is taken by some of our historians for proof that he was an Episcopalian. The stern Puritans of the day frowned upon him, either through envy of his talents or suspicion of his 'leaning to the bishops.' Winthrop, Vol II, 262 characterizes him as 'a man of busy and factious spirit.' On his return to Boston in 1634, he proceeded immediately to Plymouth Colony, where Puritanism had taken a milder form from the church of the tolerant Robinson. Here he found a retreat much to his taste at Scituate, and united himself harmoniously with Mr. Lothrop's church in 1634/5, and enjoyed that peace until 1642, when Pres Chauncey came to be the pastor. He soon entered into a controversy with Mr. Chauncy on the subject of baptism, etc. IN 1635 he had a considerable tract of land laid out to him by order of court on a beautiful neck of land on the north river. He denominated his plantation 'West Newland.' His house was erected in 1635, called 'Belle House.' The whole neck of land was called Belle House Neck, and the beautiful field of planting ont he north side of the neck was called Brook Hall Field. Mr. Vassall's mansion is not spoken of by tradition as peculiarly magnificent or substantial. It stood but about 1 century, having been taken down in 1742 by the second Judge John Cushing and replaced by the mansion that is now standing (as of 1831). His plantation on the neck was not large. Samuel Fuller and Resolved White owned the north end and Elder King the south end. The whole neck, containing not more than 200 acres. In front of his mansion was 'New Harbor Ferry,' afterward 'Dogget's Ferry,' and now 'Little's Bridge.' Just below this ferry Mr. Vassall planted 'an oyster bank,' 1639 and had the privilege of it secured to him by law. The success of this project is unknown. Mr. Vassall had other farms, particularly one he purchased of Mr. Lothrop on the east of Coleman's hills when the Rev gentleman removed to Barnstable 1639. This was afterward sold to Mr. Hatherly, and by the latter to President Chauncy 1642. While Mr. Vassall remained in Scituate, he was constantly employed in all public offices in the plantation, but none in the Colonial Gov save as Councillor of War. Whether this was owing to the suspicious that rested on him of 'inclining to the bishops' or to his own inclination, we may not fully ascertain. Winthrop II, 321 we learn Mr. Vassall went to England in 1646 to aid Dr. Child's petition for redress of wrongs in government; and that Edward Winslow being then an agent for the United Colonies there, wrote a book against the petition entitled 'New England's Salamandar disovered,' intending by this title a satire upon Mr. Vassall, a man never at rest (as his enemies says) but when in the fire of contention. Winthrop adds, 'finding no entertainment for his petitions, he went to Barbados.' Elliot observes, 'When Jamaica was taken, he laid the foundation of the great estates which his posterity enjoyed until the revolution,' alluding doubtless to Major Vassall's family at Qunicy, Boston, and Cambridge, who were the descendants of Mr. William, and who, being loyalists, left the country in the Revolution, and abandoned such of their property as could not be carried away. Mr. Vassall's residence in the West Indies was 'in the parish of St. Michael, in the island of Barbados where he deceased 1655.' (Historical Society paper, Vol IV). It appears Mr. Vassall was one of the most wealthy of the settlers in Plymouth colony, even before the aquirement of his West Indies estates. He left Scituate for England 1646. We have very few means of preparing an account of his family. Judith his daughter married Resolved White 1640; Frances married James Adams 1646; another dau married Nicholas Ware in VA (says Mr. Baylies). Capt John, the only son of which we have any knowledge, bore arms in Scituate 1643. IN 1652 he was lt under Cudworth. In 1647 he was a freeholder and received assignements of common land in his own right. IN 1661, he sold the 'Belle House Plantation' to John Cushing, and removed. While he remained in Scituate he was a highly respectable citizen and associated with Mr. Hoare and Mr. Saffin as an overseer, as the selectmen were usually called. We have understood it (but without positive record) that Major Vassall of Quincy (above named) was his son; whosse sons Lewis, John, and Wiliam graduated at Harvard College 1728, 1732, and 1733. 27 Aug 1592, Stepney, England.7,1
