(III) Benjamin, fifth son and ninth child of
John and Dorcas (Wallis) Lane, was born in
Lanesville, Gloucester, Massachusetts, July 25, 1700.
He spent his life in Gloucester where at different
times he bought several tracts of land in addition
to what he inherited from his father. On January

born at Gloucester. Massachusetts, November 23,
1727. In 1752 he bought land in Gloucester, Mas-
sachusetts, and in 1770 moved to New Gloucester,
Mame, which was largely settled by emigrants from
the former town. In 1782 he bought the "most
Easterly Corner Pew" in the meeting house at New
Gloucester. His name appears in connection with
several transfers of real estate in that region. On
October 28, 1749, Benjamin (2) Lane entered in-
tentions of marriage with his second cousin, Han-
nah Lane, daughter of Samuel and Mary (Em-
mons) Lane, of Gloucester. She was the mother
of his ten children: Nathaniel, Benjamin, men-
tioned below, Eliphalet, Zephaniah, Hannah, John,
Samuel, Joshua, Susanna and Betty. Two of the
sons served in the Revolution. In 1778 John Lane,
at_ the age of nineteen, was killed in an engagement
with a British ship mounting twenty guns, being
the first man from Gloucester, Massachusetts, to
lose his life in the Continental cause. In May, 1780,
Joshua Lane was mustered with Captain Isaac Par-
son's New Gloucester company. Colonel Prince's

1752. When a youth he moved with his people to
New Gloucester, Maine, finally locating at Poland,
that state, where he bought 'land in 1796, and at
later times. Benjamin (3) Lane had two wives,
but It IS probable that the seven children were all
by the first marriage. On July 3, 1775, Benjamin
(3) Lane married Sarah Davis, who was baptized
and admitted to the church in Annisquam, Massa-
chusetts, on September 27, 1778, on the same day
that her eldest child was baptized. The seven
children of Benjamin (3) and Sarah (Davis) Lane
were: Benjamin (4], whose sketch follows; John,
Sally, Oliver, Nehemiah, Rebecca and Zenas On
March 26, 1816, Benjamin (3) Lane married Eliza-
beth Norwood. He probably died in 1841, at the

with his parents in Poland, Maine, and in 1815 for
the sum of five hundred and twenty-five dollars
he bought a tract of one hundred, acres in Minot,
Cumberland county, Maine, which became his per-
manent home. His name appears in connection
with several other transfers of real estate up to
1846. On August 9, 1798, Benjamin (4) Lane mar-
ried Hannah Downing, and thev had eleven chil-
dren: Palfrey, Jacob, Phebe, John Barnard, Rich-

born in Minot, now a part of Auburn, Maine, on
May 4, 1806. In 1832 he moved to Whitefield, New
Hampshire, which, with the exception of a few
years spent in Carroll, this state, became his perma-
nent home. He was a farmer and lumberman, and
a respected citizen. He attended the Free Baptist
Church, was a Republican in politics, and served
as selectman for one year, and also acted as cap-
tain of a militia company. In the fall of 185 1

ceived his degree of M. D. at Hahnemann Medical
College in Philadelphia, studied abroad, became a
successful physician at Concord, New Hampshire,
and died April 13, 1883. Dr. Lane was a man of
fine qualities of mind and heart, and his untimely
death cut short a promising career. During his last
illness he was married to Frances Kendrick Adams,
of Concord, to whom he had been engaged. On
January 22. 1907, Mrs. Frances K. Lane became the
second wife of Rev. Daniel C. Roberts, D. D., vicar
of St. Paul's Episcopal Church at Concord. Three
of the sons of Captain Richard and Hannah (King)
Lane served in the Civil war, and one died from
the effects of wounds. Albert W. Lane, born June
19, 1838, and Richard (2) Lane, born April 11, 1840,
both enlisted for one year, September 21, 1864. in

of twenty-two years. Of the other children of Cap-
tain and Mrs. Richard Lane, Edward A., born No-
vember 27, 1854, is a lawyer at Pittsfield, New
Hampshire. On May 24, 1882. he married Anne
A. Barter, daughter of Lewis Barter, of Concord,
who had been educated at Wellesley College. Effie
Jane Lane, born December 10, 1856, was educated

Noyes (now deceased), late of Tilton, New Hamp-
shire. They lived at Redlands, California. Captain
Richard Lane died at Whitefield, October 12, 1884,
aged seventy-eight years, and his widow died April
15, 1896, aged eighty-one years.

(VIII) Benjamin Franklin, eldest child of Cap-
tain Richard and Hannah (King) Lane, was born
at Whitefield, New Hampshire, April 28, 1834. He
was educated in the schools of his native town and
at Derby Academy, Derbjs Vermont. He taught
school for twelve years in various places near his
home, and has served on the board of education
in Whitefield for nine years. From 1856 to 1862 he



was in the ice business in New York City. In the
latter year he came home and bought a farm in
Whitefield, where he has lived ever since. He owns
one hundred and sixty acres' of land, and makes a
specialty of milk. B. F. Lane has been deacon of
the Free Will Baptist Church for twenty years, and
was superintendent of the Sunday school for ten
years. Deacon Lane is a Republican in politics,
and was selectman for 1871-72-73, 1881-82-83-84
and 1898. He represented Whitefield in the legis-
latures of 1874 and 1S75. Deacon Lane inherits the
excellent qualities that have distinguished this fam-
ily for generations. He is a valuable citizen of his
native town, one of those who makes the world
better by living in it. On November 20, 1861, Ben-
jamin Franklin Lane married Julia A. Farr, daugh-
ter of Oilman and Triphena Farr, of Littleton, New

and an active worker in temperance and other good
causes. They have five children: Howard, Helen,
Marion, Robert and Murray. Mabel F., born April
II, 1879, is a teacher in Whitefield. Minnie, died
in infancy.



Commencing with the Plymouth Colony,
NOYES in 1620, New England had many emi-
grants from the mother country in the
early part of the century, and most, if not all, from
the same cause. Under James I. and Charles I. all
forms of worship which died not conform to those
of the established church (Anglican) were strictly
prohibited; and all "Non-Conformist," as they were
called, were rigorously persecuted, and many fled
to Holland and America. Catholics and Puritans
suffered alike under that bigoted church. Puritan
ministers were driven from their livings by the
hundred, and flocked to Holland, their old shelter,
and to America, a newly discovered refuge. Be-
tween 1627 and 1641, during the persecutions of Laud,
New England received most of its early settlers, and
this persecution was no doubt the cause of the emi-
gration of James and Nicholas Noyes and those
who came with them. The weight of authority seems
to indicate that the family of Noj^es is descended
from one of the nobles of William the Conqueror
of England in 1066. William des Noyers, one of
these nobles, whose name rendered into English is
William of the Walnut trees, was a prominent figure.
The name des Noyers by first dropping the article
became Noyers, and later was corrupted to Noyes.

(I) Rev. William Noyes was born in England,
in 1568, and died in Cholderton, in the county of
Wilts, England, before April 30, 1622. He matricu-
lated at University College, Oxford, November 15,
1588, and was admitted to the degree of B. A., May
31, 1592. He was instituted rector of Cholderton,
a place about eleven miles from Salisbury, in 1602,
and served in that position until his death. The
inventory of his estate was made April 30, 1622,
and his widow appointed administratrix May 28,
1622. He married, about 1595, Anne Parker, born
1575, and buried at Cholderton, March 7, 1657. Their
children, were : Ephraim, Nathan, James, Nicholas,
a daughter name not known, and John.

(II) Deacon Nicholas, fourth son and child
of Rev. William and Anne (Parker) Noyes, was

born in England in 1615-16. Rev. James and Deacon
Nicholas Noyes, brothers, in March 1633. ,f ^^arked
for New England in the "Mary and John of Loii-
don, with their cousni, Rev. Thomas ParUr _ No
record has been found ot the place and date of the
landing of James and Nicholas, but it was probably
on the bank of the Mystic river, as the records show
Xt they settled in Medford in 1634. and that they
moved to Newbury the following year. On ajnving
they sailed up the Parker river (then called the Quas-
cacun quen) ti a point a short distance below where
the bridge now stands. Tradition says that Nicholas
was the first to leap ashore. He walked forty miles
to Cambridge to qualify as a voter when he was
made a freeman, May 17, 1637- He was a deputy
to the general court at Boston from Newbury De-
cember 19, 1660, May 28, 1679. May 19, ^68°, and Jan-
uarv 4, 1681. He was chosen deacon of the l<irst
Parish March 20, 1634, and died November 23, 1701,
at Newburv. His will was made July 4, i7oo, ana
proved December 29, 1701. The personal estate was
£1 S3I, and the real estate was £1,160. In 1652
many were brought before the court for not observing
the sumptuary laws of 1651. The records say Nicho-
las No/es' wife, Hugh March's wife, and William
Chandler's wife were each prosecuted for wearing
a silk hood and scarf, but were discharged on pi oof
that their husbands were worth two hundred pounds
each John Hutchins' wife was also discharged
upon testifying that she was brought up above the
ordinary rank.'" Nicholas Noyes married about
1640, Mary Cutting, daughter of Captain John Cut-
ting (a ship master of London), and Mary his wife
John Cutting in his will mentions Mary, wife of
Nicholas Noyes. Their children were. Mary Han-
nah, John, Cutting, Sarah, Tm,othy, James, Abigail,
Rachel, Thomas, and three who died young (James

lived in what was afterward known as the farms
district" There he built a substantial house in a
style unusual for a farm house in those early days.
The front hall is wainscoted, and a handsome stair-
case, with elaborately carved balusters, then fashion-
able 7or first-class mansions, leads to the second
story The kitchen fireplace was huge even for that
period, and an ox could have been roasted vvdiole
in its capacious recess. This house, built m 1677,
was owned by Noyes in 1879. John Noyes died in
Newbury, intestate, in 1691, and his widow and son
Nicholas were appointed administrators, and made
their account September 28, 1694; the personal es-
tate was £309 and the real estate £246. He married

The annals of North America are fre-
CHASE quently embellished by this name, which

has been borne by statesmen, jurists,
soldiers, clergymen and others honored in the various
walks of life. New- Hampshire has been highly
honored by many prominent in the councils of the
nation, and its annals may well give prominence to
the name.

(I) For many years the earliest known ancestor
of the American family of this name was Aquila
Chase, who was among the founders of Hampton,
New Hampshire, and he was said to be from Corn-
wall, England, by several antiquarians whose author-
ity was tradition. A long search has established
beyond a reasonable doubt that he was from Ches-
ham, in Buckinghamshire, some thirty miles north-
west of London. The family is said to have been
of Norman origin, and it has been suggested that
the name was formerly LaChasse. In the old Eng-
lish records it is spelled Chaace and Chaase, and in
the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries it was modified
to the present form most in use — Chase.

Matthew Chase, of the parish of Hundrich, in
Chesham, gives his father's name as John, and the
father of the latter as Thomas. As the name of
Matthew's wife is the first female found in the line,
this article will number Matthew as the first. His
wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Bould.

(II) Richard, son of Matthew and Elizabeth
(Bould) Chase, married Mary Roberts, of Welsden,
in Middlesex. He had brothers, Francis, John,
Matthew, Thomas, Ralph and William, and a sister
Bridget.

(III) Richard (2), son of Richard (i) and Mary
(Roberts) Chase, was baptized August 3, 1542, and
was married April 16, 1564, to Joan Bishop. Their
children were : Robert, Henry, Lydia, Ezekiel, Dor-
cas, Aquila, Jason, Thomas, Abigail and Mordecai.

(IV) Aquila, fourth son of Richard (2) and Joan
(Bishop) Chase, was baptized August 14, 1580. The
unique name of Aquila is found nowhere in England,
before or since, coupled with the name of Chase, which
makes it reasonably certain that this Aquila was the
ancestor of the American family. Tradition gives
the name of his wife as Sarah. Record is found of
two sons, Thomas and Aquila, the latter born in 1618.
It is generally believed that William Chase, the first
of the name in America, was an elder son, and that
the others came with him or followed later. The
fact of their being minors would lead to their ab-
sence from the records of the earliest days of Wil-
liam in this country. Some authorities intimate that
Thomas and Aquila were employed by .their uncle,
Thomas Chase, who was part owner of the ship
"John and Francis," and thus became navigators
and so found their way to America. This theory is
strengthened by the fact that Aquila was granted
a house lot and six acres of marsh by the inhabitants
of Newbury, Massachusetts, "on condition that he
do go to sea and do service in the Towne with a
boat for foure years." (Aquilla and William and de-
scendants receive mention in this article).

(V) Thomas, assumed by some authorities to
iv — ^22



be elder son of Aquila (i) Chase, of Chesham, Eng-
land, was born, probably about 1615, in England. He
was in Hampton, New Hampshire, as early as 1640,
and died there in 1652. He married Elizabeth, daugh-
ter of Thomas Philbrick, of Newbury, and probably
lived in that town for a short time. His widow-
Elizabeth administered his estate. She was married
(second), October 26, 1654, to John Garland; and
(third), January 19, 1674, to Henry Roby. She
died February 11, 1677. Thomas Chase's children
were : Thomas, Joseph, James, Isaac and Abraham.

(VI) James, third son and child of Thomas
and Elizabeth (Philbrick) Chase, was born 1649, in
Hampton, where he resided. He was married Is^o-
vember 2, 1675, to Elizabeth, daughter of Henry
Green, and they had four daughters.

(VII) Abigail, second daughter and child of
James and Elizabeth (Green) Chase, was born Au-
gust 27, 1681, and married John (2) Chase (q. v.),
a grandson of Aquila (2).

(V) Aquila (2), son of Aquila (i) Chase, set-
tled in Newbury, Massachusetts (that part which
is now Newburyport), about 1646. He was formerly
in Hampton (now part of New Hampshire), where
he and his brother Thomas received grants of land
in June 1640, along with fifty-five others. As owner
of a houselot he was listed among those entitled to
a share in the common lands, December 3, 1645.
This he subsequently sold to his brother, as shown
by town records, after his removal to Newbury. His
wife, Ann Wheeler, was a daughter of John Wheeler,
who came from Salisbury, England, in September,
1646. According to the county records Aquila Chase
and his wife, with her brother David Wheeler, were
presented and fined '"for gathering pease on the
Sabbath." They were admonished by the court, after
which their fines were remitted. Mr. Chase died
December 27, 1670, aged fifty-two years. His widow
was married June 14, 1672, to Daniel Mussiloway,
