lived at Redenhall, was a yeoman and a
butcher by trade. His will was dated
May 19, 1614, and proved May 31, 1614,
by the widow, and June 16, 1614, by son
Thomas. He bequeathed to wife Frances
a place in Assyes, in Harleston or Reden-
hall, for the term of her natural life ; to
son Edward the same tenement after his
wife's death ; to son Samuel ; to daughter
Anna; daughter Elizabeth Fuller and
daughter Mary Fuller; to son Thomas a
tenement "wherein now dwell, held of
Tryndelhedge Bastoft Manor in Reden-
hall or Harleston;" and mentions grand-
son John, son of John, deceased. His



wife's baptismal name was Frances, and
they had the following children : Thomas,
baptized December 13, 1573; Edward,
September 4, 1575, came in the "May-
flower" and signed the compact, died in
1621, left an only son Samuel ; Ann, April
22, 1577; Ann, December 21, 1578; John,

low; Robert, October 22, 1581 ; Edmund,
May 19, 1583; Sarah, September 4, 1586;
Christopher, December 15, 1588. Several
other children of Robert Fuller may have
been of another of the same name. The
will of Robert Fuller, butcher, mentions
those of the American families, however.

(III) Dr. Samuel Fuller, of the "May-
flower," progenitor of the family here
under consideration, was a physician of
much skill and a man who was distin-
guished for his great piety and upright
character. He lived in the Plymouth
colony and died there in 1633. He mar-
ried (first) in London, England, Elise
Glascock, who died before 1613 ; (second)

Carpenter, who was a sister of Alice Car-
penter, the second wife of Governor Brad-
ford; she died before 1617; (third) in
Leyden, May 27, 1617, Bridget Lee, who
came over in the "Ann" in 1623, in com-
pany with Matthew Fuller, son of Ed-
ward Fuller. She also brought with her
an infant child, who died soon after she
arrived at Plymouth. Dr. Samuel and
Bridget (Lee) Fuller had two children
born in Plymouth, Samuel and Mercy, the
latter of whom married Ralph James.

(IV) Rev. Samuel (2) Fuller, son of
Dr. Samuel (1) and Bridget (Lee) Fuller,
was born 1629, in Plymouth, and was one
of the twenty-six original proprietors of
Middleboro, and the first minister of that
town, where he died August 17, 1695. He
had been educated for the ministry, and
preached in Middleboro many years be-
fore his ordination, which did not take

place until 1694. His grave is on the
"Hill" in Plymouth. He married Eliza-

Elder William Brewster, of the Plymouth
colony. She survived him more than

and lived in that part of North Bridge-
water which is now Brockton, Massachu-
setts, where he died in 1727. He was a
physician of reputation, residing in Hali-
fax, Massachusetts, and married, October
20, 1709, Mary Eddy. Their first two

(VI) Dr. Jabez Fuller, youngest son of
Dr. Isaac and Mary (Eddy) Fuller, was
born May 7, 1723, recorded in Middle-
boro, and lived in Bridgewater, Massa-
chusetts, whence he removed to Med-
field, same colony. In 1756 he purchased
a homestead farm in "Dingle Dell," Med-
field, and engaged in practice in that
town, where he died October 5, 1781. In
1747 he was received in the Medfield
church from the church at Bridgewater.
He had a high reputation as a physician.
He married at Boston, May 12, 1747, Eliz-
abeth Hilliard, of that town, born October
6, 1724, daughter of John and Elizabeth
Hilliard (the latter married, June 10, 1712,
by Cotton Mather). Mrs. Fuller survived

field, and was a physician, residing in
Middleboro, where he died March 13,
1802. He married, August 31, 1774, Lucy
Eddy, born 1757, died September 17, 1839,

(VIII) Jabez (2) Fuller, sixth son of
Dr. Jonathan and Lucy (Eddy) Fuller,
was born July 18, 1791, in Middleboro,
and lived in Bridgewater, Boston, Read-
ing and Wethersfield, Vermont, dying
July 15, 1873, in the village of Perkins-
ville, in the last named town. He mar-
ried, September 7, 1815, Sarah Hudson
Churchill, of Plympton, daughter of
James and Sarah (Soule) Churchill, a de-
scendant of Myles Standish, of the May-
flower colony. Captain Myles Standish,
who came in the "Mayflower" in 1620,
with his wife Rose, was born in England
about 1586. He settled first in Plymouth,
but soon removed among the early set-
tlers of Duxbury, across the bay from
Plymouth, and the hill rising abruptly
from the waters of Plymouth bay, upon
which he built his house and lived the
remainder of his life, has been called Cap-
tain's Hill to this day. He signed the



84

compact, and became one of the leading
men of the colony. In February, 1621, at
a general meeting to establish military
arrangements, he was chosen captain and
vested with the command. He conducted
all the early expeditions against the In-
dians and continued in the military serv-
ice of the colony his whole life. In 1645
he commanded the Plymouth troops
which marched against the Narragan-
setts, and when hostilities with the Dutch
were apprehended in 1653, he was one of
the council of war of Plymouth, and was
appointed to command troops which the
council determined to raise. He was also
prominent in the civil affairs of the
colony ; was for many years assistant, or
one of the Governor's council, and when
in 1626 it became necessary to send a rep-
resentative to England to represent the
colonists in the business arrangements
with the merchant adventurers he was
selected. He was a commissioner of the
United colonies, and a partner in the trad-
ing company. His will, dated March 7,
1655, was proved May, 1657. He desired
to be buried near his deceased daughter
Lora and daughter-in-law Mary. He died
October 3, 1656. An imposing monument
has been erected on Captain's Hill, Dux-
bury. Captain Standish is one of the Pil-
grims known to every generation since
and to the whole world, partly because
of his military prominence, the first in
New England, and partly, especially in
the present generation, because of the
poem written by Longfellow, "The Court-
ship of Myles Standish." His first wife
Rose, who came with him, died January
29, 1621, and he married (second) Bar-
bara, surname unknown. Alexander
Standish, son of Captain Myles Standish,
was admitted a freeman in 1648; was
third town clerk of Duxbury from 1695
to 1700, and died in Duxbury in 1702 ; his
widow, Desire, in 1723. His will was



dated July 5, 1702, and proved August 10,
same year. He married (first) Sarah
Alden, daughter of John and Priscilla
(Mullins) Alden; (second) Desire (Doty)
Sherman, daughter of Edward Doty and
widow (first) of Israel Holmes and (sec-
ond) of William Sherman. Sarah, daugh-
ter of Alexander and Sarah (Alden)
Standish, became the wife of Benjamin
Soule, and the mother of Ebenezer Soule,
who married Silence Hudson. Sarah,
daughter of Ebenezer and Silence (Hud-
son) Soule, became the wife of James
Churchill, and the mother of Sarah Hud-
son Churchill, wife of Jabez (2) Fuller,
as above noted. Her children were: 1.
Fanny Woodbury, born February 15,
1818, married, in 1840, Isaac D. Ryder,
who died in 1845, leaving one daughter,
Emily F., born in 1841, who married Rich-
ard French ; she died in 1866, leaving one
son, Isaac Ryder French, born in 1863,
living in the West. 2. Harriet Newell,
born May 31, 1820, married Orren Taylor,
in 1844; she died June 27, 1862, having
had children, Mylon O., Ella J., Rosanna
and Edward, who died young. 3. Flavius
Josephus, born July 10, 1822, married, in
1859, Josephine Wilson; he died Febru-
ary 14, 1864, leaving two sons, Frank F.
and Frederick. 4. Sarah Delano, born
March 12, 1829, married, in 1853, Simon
Buck, and they had children, Warren M.,
George H., Lynn W., Wallace W. and
Moses P. 5. William Eddy, mentioned
below. 6. Anna Maria, born November
25, 1835, married, in 1858, J. Martin Bill-
ings, and their children were : Albert
Thomas, William Jabez and Helen S. 7.
Helen Emery, born February 18, 1840,
married A. C. Sherwin ; she died in 1891,
the mother of one daughter, Jennie.

(IX) Hon. William Eddy Fuller, sec-
ond son of Jabez (2) and Sarah Hudson
(Churchill) Fuller, was born June 30,
1832, in Reading, Vermont, and died at



ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BIOGRAPHY



his home in Taunton, Massachusetts, No-
vember 9, 191 1. For a quarter of a cen-
tury Mr. Fuller administered the office of
judge of probate and insolvency at Taun-
ton, to the high satisfaction of the bar
and of his constituency. His early edu-
cation was supplied by the academies of
South' Woodstock and West Randolph,
Vermont, receiving instruction at the lat-
ter institution from Austin Adams, after-
ward Chief Justice of the State of Iowa.
In 1852, at the age of twenty years, young
Fuller entered Dartmouth College, there
completing his freshman and sophomore
years. In 1854 he entered the junior class
at Harvard University, and was gradu-
ated in 1856, taking high rank among
such contemporaries as the late Governor
George D. Robinson, the late Judge Jere-
miah Smith, of the Supreme Court of New
Hampshire ; Judge Thomas J. Mason, of
the United States Circuit Court of Mary-
land, and Charles Francis Adams. For
three months after leaving college Mr.
Fuller was submaster at the New Bed-
ford High School, and during the five suc-
ceeding years was principal of the Taun-
ton High School. At the suggestion of
his uncle, Hon. Zachariah Eddy, of Mid-
dleboro, one of the distinguished lawyers
of his day, Mr. Fuller decided to pursue
the study of law. This he began in the
office of Chester I. Reed, attorney-general
of Massachusetts, and subsequently one
of the justices of the Superior Court. In
April, 1863, Mr. Fuller was admitted to
the Bristol county bar, and at once en-
gaged in practice at Taunton, where he
continued to reside until his death, in his
eightieth year. While in practice he was
counsel and an officer of many important
corporations, and established an excellent
record as such. In 1868 he was chosen
register of the Court of Probate and In-
solvency for Bristol county, which office
he continued to hold by successive reelec-



tions until 1883, when he was appointed
judge of the same court by Governor Ben-
jamin F. Butler. This appointment by a
Democratic governor came as a matter
of compromise between the governor and
his council, which was composed of Re-
publicans. The completion of Judge Ful-
ler's quarter of a century of service on the
bench was made the occasion of a notable
gathering of the members of the bar from
New Bedford, Fall River, Taunton and
Attleboro, in observance of the occasion.
This meeting was held in the Taunton
Probate Court room, presided over by
Judge William S. Woods, of Taunton,
and attended by many leading attorneys
of the section. At the request of this
meeting Judge Fuller sat for an oil paint-
ing, which has been placed in the court
room by the side of his predecessor, Judge
Oliver Prescott. Judge Fuller possessed
in a remarkable degree those qualities of
old-fashioned courtesy and forbearance
which secured for him the lasting regard
and esteem of all whose business brought
them before his court. While kind and
considerate, he was ever firm in enforcing
the mandates of the law. When off the
bench his companionship was exceed-
ingly interesting because of his fund of
valuable knowledge and his readiness as
a conversationalist. He was regarded by
other probate judges of the State as their
chief justice, and his name will be pre-
served in history as an intelligent and
efficient student of probate law. In 1891
he published a work on the Massachu-
setts probate laws, which became a hand-
book ever since in use by the legal pro-
fession throughout the State and regarded
as one of the most valuable on the sub-
ject. A few years since a second edition
was issued. In 1893 he was chairman of
a committee of probate judges appointed
to revise the rules and forms of procedure
in the courts of probate and insolvency,



ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BIOGRAPHY



and the work of this committee was ap-
proved by the Supreme Judicial Court.
The result of the labors of this committee
is now in use providing the forms and
rules of procedure in force throughout
the Commonwealth. Judge Fuller was
known as a model judge and a model citi-
zen, and in both capacities enjoyed the
highest respect of all who were privileged
to know him. Aside from his interest in
the legal work of the times, Judge Fuller
was the friend of education, and rejoiced
in literary and historical pursuits. For
many years he was a member of the
Taunton School Board ; he served as trus-
tee and president of Bristol Academy,
and was for several years the histori-
ographer of the Old Colony Historical
Society. He was long a director of the
Taunton National Bank, and was vice-
president of the Taunton Savings Bank.
His home was on School street, Taunton,
and his body rests in Mount Pleasant
Cemetery of that city. He married, No-
vember 21, 1859, in Taunton, Anna Miles
Corey, born April 30, 1838, in Foxboro,
Massachusetts, a daughter of John and
Anna (Rhodes) Corey (see Corey VI).
They were the parents of two children,
William Eddy, mentioned below, and
Mary Corey, born August 14, 1873. Mrs.
Fuller and her daughter occupy the home-
stead on School street, in Taunton, and
are among the esteemed members of the
society of that city.

(X) William Eddy (2) Fuller, only son
of William Eddy (1) and Anna Miles
(Corey) Fuller, was born August 14, 1870,
in Taunton, and is now engaged in the
practice of law in Fall River, Massachu-
setts. He married, September 22, 1897,
Mary Newcomb, of Detroit, Michigan.
Children: William Eddy, 3d., born June
29, 1898; Newcomb, September 22, 1900;
Anna Corey, April 2J, 1907.



(The Corey Line).

This was an early name in Massachu-
setts and it has been identified with the
development of that State and of New
England. Its bearers have been people
of high character and great moral worth,
and may be fitly spoken of with commen-
dation in the annals of America. Many
of the family were men of prominence
about Boston during the eighteenth cen-
tury. In the early records the name is vari-
ously spelled Cory, Corec, Cori, Couree
and Corey. Several bearing the name
were soldiers of the Revolution. James
Corey, of Groton. Massachusetts, was
killed in the battle of Bunker Hill. Eph-
raim Corey, of Groton, was a captain in
the Revolutionary army, as was also Tim-
othy Corey, son of Isaac Corey, of Wes-
ton. The first on record in this country
was Giles Corey, who was residing in
Salem, Massachusetts, in 1649, with his
wife Margaret. Their daughter Deliver-
ance was born there August 5, 1658. The
mother died previous to 1664, ar >d on
April n of that year Giles Corey married
(second) Mary Britz. She died August
28, 1684, at the age of sixty-three years,
and he had a third wife, Martha, who was
admitted to the church in Salem Village
(now Danvers), April 27, 1690. She was
the victim of the terrible witchcraft de-
lusion in Salem, and was apprehended in
March, 1692, and hung on the following
Thursday. In a very short time her hus-
band was also arrested and was impris-
oned in April. He was kept in confine-
ment and moved about from one jail to
another, going to Boston and back again
to Salem, and was finally executed on
September 19, 1692, in the most horrible
manner ever used on the Continent. He
was pressed to death, being the only one
who ever suffered that form of execution
in Massachusetts. He was a member of
the first church of Salem, from which he



87



ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BIOGRAPHY



was excommunicated the day preceding
his death. Such was the tenacity of the
execrable witchcraft delusion in Salem
that this sentence was not expunged from
the church record until twenty years
after, and a period of eleven years elapsed
before justice was done to the memory
of his wife in the Danvers church.
Though a petition for relief appears in
the Essex records on behalf of the chil-
dren, no mention of their names is found
except of Martha, who made the peti-
tion in behalf of the family, and Deliver-
ance before mentioned. It is probable
that there were several sons. Jonathan
and Thomas Corey are mentioned as hav-
ing been at Chelmsford at an early period.

(I) Thomas Corey, who may have been
a son of Giles Corey, of Salem, is said to
have come from Devonshire, England.
He was an inhabitant of Charlestown,
Massachusetts, in 1658, and very soon
thereafter settled in Chelmsford. Dur-
ing King Philip's war he served as a sol-
dier. He married, September 19, 1665, in
Chelmsford, Abigail Goole.or Gould, born
18th of 12th month, 1649, in Braintree,
Massachusetts, daughter of Francis and
Rose Goole. Francis Goole lived first in
Braintree and Duxbury, but was an
early settler of Chelmsford. Children of
Thomas Corey: John, born January 26,

1667, in Chelmsford; Thomas, mentioned
below; Samuel, February 6, 1670; Abi-
gail, 1672; Nathaniel, December 1, died
December 22, 1674; Elizabeth, December
21, 1683; Anne, March 7, 1686, died April
29, 1686.

(II) Thomas (2) Corey, second son of
Thomas (1) and Abigail (Goole or Gould)
Corey, was born 28th of 4th month, 1669,
in Chelmsford, and died in Weston,
Massachusetts, March 22, 1739. He mar-
ried Hannah Page, born February 10,

1668, in Watertown, daughter of Samuel
and Hannah Page, of Watertown, and



Concord, Massachusetts, and granddaugh-
ter of John and Phebe Page, who came
from Dedham, England, in 1630, and set-
tled at Watertown. Of their children, all
except the eldest were baptized December
29, 1723, in Weston, the youngest being
then several months old : Joseph ; Han-
nah, married, June 27, 1734, Joshua John-
son; Thomas; Samuel; Ebenezer; Jona-
than; Abigail; Isaac, mentioned below;
William.

(III) Isaac Corey, son of Thomas (2)
and Hannah (Page) Corey, was baptized
in Weston, December 29, 1723, and lived
in that town. He married there, April 12,
1739, recorded in Waltham, Abigail
Priest, born July 3, 1719, in the West Pre-
cinct, now Waltham, daughter of James
and Sarah Priest. Children : Isaac, men-
tioned below; Timothy, born October 27,
1741, married, 1766, Elizabeth Griggs, of
Brookline; Eunice, June 27, 1744; Na-
than, May 18, 1747; Elisha, May 21, 1751.

(IV) Isaac (2) Corey, eldest child of
Isaac (1) and Abigail (Priest) Corey,
was born January 9, 1740, in Weston, and
died in Wayland, or East Sudbury, March
8, 1817. He was a soldier at Lake George
in 1758, in Captain Jonathan Brown's
company, and also served in the Revolu-
tion. He was a member of Captain Sam-
uel Lamson's company of minute-men,
and served three days on the occasion of
the Lexington alarm,. He was subse-
quently in Captain Jonathan Fisk's (Wes-
ton) company, Colonel Eleazer Brooks'
regiment, called March 4, 1776, and served
five days at Dorchester Heights. He was
also a private in Captain Abraham
Pierce's company, of Colonel Brooks'
regiment of guards, from February 3 to
April 3, 1778, at Cambridge. There are
several other items of Revolutionary serv-
ice accredited to Isaac Corey, but it was
probably not this individual. He mar-
ried, December 9, 1762, Ruhamah Comey,



ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BIOGRAPHY



born April 15, 1742, in Lexington, Massa-
chusetts, daughter of Jabez and Sarah

port, born April 22, 1771, in Milton, Mas-
sachusetts, not recorded there. She mar-
ried (second) May 9, 1800, in Foxboro,
Massachusetts, Roger Sumner, and died
1853, in that town. Leonard Corey had
two children: Leonard, baptized 1792,
married Ada Skinner, of Mansfield, and
John, mentioned below.

(VI) John Corey, son of Leonard and
Mehitable (Davenport) Corey, was born
September 4, 1798, and made his home in
Foxboro, Massachusetts, where he was
engaged in the straw bleaching and hat
manufacturing business. While on his
way to New York he was lost with the
ill-fated steamer "Lexington," which was
burned in Long Island Sound, January
13, 1840. He married, in Foxboro, in Au-
gust, 1820, Anna, or Nancy, Rhodes, born
in that town, July 6, 1799, daughter of
Stephen (3) and Anna (Daniels) Rhodes,
the last named the widow of Nehemiah
