appears among the early settlers of Con-
cord, Massachusetts. It cannot be posi-
tively stated whether or not William Hart-
well was of the party of settlers under the
lead of Major Simon Willard, who led the
way in cutting loose from a neighborhood
of their friends to penetrate the wilderness
in search of homes, and which "made
their pitch" within the limits of the his-
toric town of Cambridge, September 12,
1635, but enough is known to make it
extremely probable that he must have
arrived in the settlement in the following
year, 1636. A tract of land, containing
nine acres, "more or less" was allotted to
him on which to erect a dwelling, situ-
ated, as near as can be judged, nearly a
mile eastward of the Public Square, along
the Lexington or old "Bay" road, very
nearly at the eastern bound of the prop-
erty occupied in 1887 by E. W. Bull, Na-
thaniel Ball and Joshua Wheeler. If, as
is assumed, Mr. Hartwell arrived in Con-
cord in 1636, he was twenty-three years
old at that time. He was made a freeman
of the colony in 1642, appears as one of
the petitioners for a grant of the town of
Chelmsford, adjoining Concord on the
north, in 1653, was a corporal in 1671,
was one of the committee of nine citizens
to frame rules for the guidance of the
selectmen of the town in 1672, in 1673
was appointed quartermaster by Vice
Henry Woodis, appointed cornet in the
Second (Captain Thomas Wheeler's)
Troop of Horse of Middlesex county.
He appears as one of the large land-

holders, with two hundred and forty-
seven acres of land, in nineteen separately
described tracts. He died March 12, 1690,
"in ye 77th year of his age," having made
his will a short time previous, in which he
mentions his daughters, Sarah and Mary,
and his sons, John and Samuel. His wife,
Jazan, died August 5, 1695. The resting
place of their remains is not known, but
was doubtless in the old graveyard on
the hill south of the Public Square in
Concord Village, where several of his de-
scendants are buried. Children: John,
mentioned below ; Sarah, married, in
1661, Benjamin Parker, of Billerica;
Mary, born 1643; Samuel, March 26.
1645; Martha, February 25, 1650; Jona-
than ; Nathaniel.

1690, and was a soldier in King Philip's
War under Captain Thomas Wheeler,
marching to the defence of Quaboag, now
Brookfield. He married (first) January

Edward and Elizabeth Wright, who died
March 3, 1681. He married (second)

neighboring town of Carlisle. He re-
ceived from his father-in-law, June 3,
1698, a deed of the south half of a house
and lot in the village of Concord, also
land in Carlisle, on which he seems to



have lived. He married, in Concord,
March 27, 1690, Sarah Smedley, born
about 1670, died November 13, 1715,

and was a minute-man in the early days
of the Revolution. He was a pioneer
settler in West Fitchburg, Massachu-

setts, where he cleared land and began
farming. Here he died April 3, 1813.
This land has continued in the family to
the present time and is now occupied
by his great-great-grandson, Nelson W.
Hartwell. He married, November 26,

well, was born February 9, 1823, in Fitch-
burg, where he died October 16, 1894.
His education was supplied by the public
schools of his native town, and he re-
mained on the paternal farm, sharing in
its labors until he attained his majority.
After one year in the service of neighbor-
ing farmers, he bought out the interests
of the other heirs, and became sole owner
of the paternal homestead, on which he
continued to engage in agriculture until
the close of his life. He had a natural
mechanical bent, inherited from his father
and grandfather, and did much carpenter
work during his most active years. A
Unitarian in religious faith, a Republican
in politics, he enjoyed the esteem and re-
spect of his contemporaries. He married
Martha Sophia Adams, born October 18,

(IX) Walter Arvin Hartwell, second
son of Leonard and Martha Sophia
(Adams) Hartwell, was born March 5,
1854, in Fitchburg, and attended the
public schools of that city. After com-
pleting the grammar school course, he
engaged actively in farming on the old
homestead, until he was twenty-two years
old. During this time he had acquired,
through practice with his father, a thor-
ough knowledge of carpenter work, and
his natural mechanical taste and ability
led him to engage in this kind of work.
He was able to begin, on leaving home,
as a journeyman, and was very soon
promoted to foreman and placed in charge
of construction work. After some sixteen
years in this line of endeavor, he began
taking contracts on his own account, and
has continued down to the present time
as a contracting builder. He does a gen-
eral business, employing stone and brick
masons, carpenters and painters, beside
unskilled labor, and has thus aided in the
development and progress of his home
town. He employs a large force of men,
and handles only large operations. He
also deals extensively in real estate, being
connected with the Lyon Realty Com-
pany of Fitchburg. In religion a Metho-
dist, in politics a Republican, he takes an
active interest in the public welfare, and
has served three years as a member of the
City Council from Ward Three. He is
now a member of the city school board,
on which he has served six years, and is
a member of the Fitchburg Merchants'
Association and Board of Trade. The
only fraternal organization with which he
affiliates is the Ancient Order of United
Workmen. He married (first) December

of Walter Arvin and Chloe Maria (Stock-
well) Hartwell, was born December 26,
1879, in Fitchburg, and was educated in
the public schools of that city, including
the high school. After leaving school he
engaged in farming upon the paternal
homestead, which has been in the family
for several generations, located on Ash-
burnham street in West Fitchburg. Be-
sides general farming, he conducts a milk
and dairy business, and also deals in wood
and lumber. An active and enterprising
man, he is keeping up the well-known
reputation of the family for industry and
business ability. He is a Unitarian in
religion, and a Republican in politics, and
is active in promoting to the extent of
his ability those moral and educational
influences which bear up the standards of
this Republic. He is now (1915) serv-
ing as a member of the City Council from
Ward Three. He married, December 22,
1913, Fannie Adeline Robbins, born May
25, 1890, in Dunstable, Massachusetts,
daughter of Freeman Frederick and Ida
E. (McGrath) Robbins.



FLETCHER, George Aaron,

Building Contractor.

This name has been known in the
United States since 1630, and has been
borne by many prominent citizens. The
Fletchers have generally been leading
people in the communities where they
have dwelt. The name was originally
written Fledger, and was the name of the
trade of a maker of arrows, or as some
think, of affixing the feather to the arrow
— fledging it. The French word Flechier
has precisely the same meaning, and some
have inferred a French extraction. All
the traditions concur, however, in making
the early ancestors of this family of Eng-
lish or Welsh stock, and Yorkshire, one
of the northern countries of England, is
named as the spot whence they emigrated
to America. The name has been and still
is common there. Rev. Elijah Fletcher,
of Hopkinton,New Hampshire, born 1747,
died 1786, the first so far as known who
made genealogical collections of the fam-
ily, believed that the great ancestor, Rob-
ert Fletcher, came from Yorkshire, and
that account was gathered when Robert's
great-grandchildren were living.

(I) Robert Fletcher settled at Concord,
Massachusetts, in 1630, in which year
seventeen ships arrived in Massachusetts
Bay and at Plymouth. He had three sons,
Luke, William and Samuel, and was him-
self thirty-eight years of age. Concord,
the twentieth town incorporated in Mas-
sachusetts, was organized in 1635, and his
name appears in the earliest records of
that town. In the court files of Middle-
sex county his name frequently occurs as
a petitioner for bridges, as juryman, etc.
He became a wealthy and influential man,
and died at Concord, April 3, 1677, aged
eighty-five. Children : Luke, died in Con-
cord, May 21, 1665, probably unmarried;

William, mentioned below ; Cary, a daugh-
ter ; Samuel, born 1632; Francis, 1636.

(II) William Fletcher, second son of
the settler, Robert Fletcher, was born in
England, in 1622, came when eight years

year 1653 he settled in Chelmsford, Mas-
sachusetts, of which he was one of the
first inhabitants, and here he was chosen
selectman. November 22, 1654. "This
first publick meeting was holden at his
house." On the court files of Middlesex
county his name frequently appears ; in
1665, as a petitioner for a road; the same
year on a bill of costs for his servant
being put in the house of correction, etc.
The birth of his daughter Lydia on the
Concord records is the first birth of a
Fletcher that is recorded in America. His
tract of land embraced what is now the
city of Lowell, and a part of his land, a
farm near the meeting house in Chelms-
ford, remains as it has been for more than
two hundred years in possession of the
family, and is now occupied by Gardner
Fletcher. He married Lydia Bates, in
Concord, October 7, 1645. He died No-

HATCH, George,

Head of Important Business.

The surname Hatch is of ancient Eng-
lish origin and is common in all parts of
England. No less than six pioneers of
this family, some of them doubtless re-
lated, came to Massachusetts, before 1650.
John Platch was at Scituate as early as
January 3, 1636. Jonathan Hatch, of
Plymouth, served against the Narragan-
sett Indians in 1645 ! settled at Barn-
stable. William Hatch, who came from
Sandwich, England, settled at Scituate,
was elder of the church, lieutenant in the
military company ; left sons, Walter and
William, who have many descendants.

(I) Thomas Hatch, probably a brother
of William Hatch, was a proprietor of
Dorchester, Massachusetts, and was ad-
mitted a freeman there, May 14, 1634.
He appears to have gone to Yarmouth,
where a Thomas Hatch was a proprietor
and was admitted a freeman, January 7,
1638-39. He was at Barnstable in 1643.
He finally settled at Scituate. He died
before June 14, 1646, when his daughter
Hannah was baptized. According to the
inventory of his estate he had the unique
distinction of owning an "instrument
called a violin." The inventory was dated
May 27, 1661, long after his death. He
married Grace , who married (sec-
ond) John Spring, of Watertown. A rec-
ord in 1659 states that she had been liv-
ing in Scituate for four or five years,
though married to John Spring. Chil-
dren: Jonathan, William, Thomas, Alice
and Hannah.

(II) Thomas (2) Hatch, son of Thomas
(1) Hatch, was born about 1640. He

ber 16, 1701, Elizabeth Tilden. He had

Hatch, was born in Scituate, March 16,

1703. He married Tabitha before

coming to Truro on Cape Cod about 1727.

joining July 4, 1736, and late in life was
dismissed to Boston, where several of her
sons went to live. Children, born at
Truro: 1. and 2. John and Ezekiel, bap-
