11. Rachel Milliken* (1), fourth daughter of Edward^ (1), b. in Scarbro, June

16, 1744; J- Ji-iiy 11^ 1746.

12. Lemuel Milliken'' (1), eighth son of Edward^ (1), wash, in Scarbro, in 1745;
m. Jan. 18, 1770, to Phebe Lord, and had no less than eight children born to him,
I do not know his place of residence; it was in Scarborough.

13. Samuel Milliken* (1), ninth son of Edward^ (1), was b. in Scarbro, Feb. 14,
1746; m. Susanna Beals in that town, Oct. 31, 1769. She was b. in the fort
between York and Kittcry, Sept. 14, 1751, and d. at Mt. Desert, Me., Jan. 18,
1852. He d. there July 26, 1841. His name appears as a grantee on Union
River, where he settled about 1765; he removed to Pretty Marsh in 1783. He
was a pioneer on Mt. Desert Island, and was known and honored by all who
knew him. Bold to speak the truth, he is said to have offended evil-doers; but
even his enemies, if such he had, respected him for his staunch manhood. He
and his estimable companion were of the old-fashioned stamp, somewhat quaint
in appearance on pubhc occasions, but by all respectable persons they were treated
with deference and poUteness. This world would be much better with more of
this kind of inhabitants. By this union there were tAvelve children, of whom with
5th generation.

14. Jeremiah Milliken* (1), tenth son of Edward^ (1), was b. in Scarbro, Nov.
6, 1751 ; m. to Sarah Lord of that town June 3, 1771, and lived near his birth-
place. It has been written that this Jeremiah Milliken settled on Union River,
in Eastern Maine ; but the births of his children, of whom with 5th generation,
were recorded in Scarbro.

/iftb ('feneration.


1. Mary Milliken'^ (1), eldest daughter of Benjamin* (2), b. in Scarbro, Sept. 17,
174S; was m. to her cousin John Smith of Scarbro.

2. Abigail Milliken* (2), second daughter of Benjamin* (2), b. in Scarbro, Sept.
29, 1750; was m. to Capt. Isa.ac Lord, and lived on Union River. She was fond
of telling her children and others, that she was the first white woman to cook a
meal in Ellsworth, of which her father was the founder. She was wont to say
that the back of her fireplace was a " punch-bowl," meaning the great bowlder so-
called, against which the fiire was built. She d. in Surry, Me., May 10, 1838, aged


88. There have been several Norman Lords in Eastern Maine, who were prob-
ably her descendants. Thus the name of the Norman family was perpetuated.

3. Susanna Milliken* (2), third daughter of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro,
July 10, 1752.

4. Benjamin Milliken^ (3), eldest son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro, May
15. 1754, and d. young.

5. Sarah Milliken^ (1), fourth daughter of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro, Jan.
24, 1756; was m. to Capt. Zachary Tarbox of the Biddeford family, and sur-
vived but one year after her marriage, dying in Ellsworth, Me. Her daughter
left a manuscript history of that town, now possessed by Mrs. E. C. Milliken of
Boston, from which some data was copied.

6. Joseph Milliken^ (2), second son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro, Nov.

10, 1758; m. , and settled in Surry, Me.; but as the early records of that

town were destroyed by fire, the births of his numerous family of children could
not be found. There was, however, an old Bible containing such record, and it
may still be in the possession of his descendants. Advertising in the "Ameri-
can " of Ellsworth, and diligent search by correspondence, have proved unsuc-
cessful. Miss Jellison, in her History of Ellsworth, says he married and had "an
obscure family" in the neighborhood of that town; but we fail to see the appro-
priateness of her statement, for he had a quiver well filled with sons, whose pos-
terity, now scattered from their cradle-town to the Pacific slope, are of intelligence
and good character. His sons were named John, Benjamin, Daniel, Jesse, and
Dominicus, of whom more with 6th generation.

7. Elizabeth Milliken* (1), fifth daughter of Benjamin* (4), was b. in Scarbro,
Dec. 10, 1760, and was the second wife of Capt. Zachary Tarbox, who was
lost at sea, leaving her with three small children.

8. Benjamin Milliken^ (4), third son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro (?),
Jan. 9, 1763; m. Lucy Banks, and settled at the mouth of the river below Ells-
worth. Miss Jellison, in her manuscript history, says his father left two children
by his second wife at Ellsworth, one of whom was this Benjamin; but he prob-
ably went to the Province of New Brunswick, for I find record of a grant of land
to him, of equal date of his father's grant, at St. George, N.B. I have no reason
to think that he settled there. The old Bible containing his family record — if
such there was — has been lost sight of; and as the early town registers of Ells-
worth were destroyed, we cannot find the dates of births, marriages, and deaths.
He had six sons and five daughters, of whom with 6th generation.

9. Ellas Milliken'' (1), fourth son of Benjamin* (2), was b. in Scarbro (?), Aug.
24, 1765; was m. to Mary Patten, of Scotch-Irish extraction, in 1786, when in
Maine. She d. May 19, 1835. He m. 2d, a Mrs. Dunham, by whom no issue.
His death occurred June 22, 1846, at the age of 81 years. His early manhood
was spent in Stetson, Penobscot Co., Me., where he continued his residence
until 1817, when he removed to Ohio, and thence to Dearborn Co., Ind. He
was a man of unwearied energy and industry, who braved many dangers and
passed through many trying experiences in pioneer days in the West. As the
mediums of communication were inadequate between the East and West at that
early day, Ehas and his family became isolated from their kindred, and for
many years were lost sight of, and only vague family traditions existed to guide


the compiler of this genealo,u;y in liis search for his posterity. After mucli ad-
vertising through the Western newspapers and an extensive correspondence, the
family were found, and the records assembled as herein produced. These Milli-
kens have developed characteristics conspicuous in the Eastern jjranches, and
have held the confidence and esteem of their fellow-citizens. Elias and Alary
had thirteen chiklren, of whom with 6th generation.

ID. Phebe IVIilliken^ (1), fifth daughter of Benjamin^ (2), b. Aug. 30, 1767; was
m. to Capt. Robert Varden, an Englishman, and went with him to his native
land, where a daughter was born and christened. They returned to New Bruns-
wick, however, and settled near her father, at Bocabec, where the old Varden
mansion stands to-day. The location is known as Varden's Point. Here they
d. and were buried. A somewhat romantic story is told about this Phebe Milli-
ken. Her husband was an officer in the British navy during the Revolution, and
while at Castine became enamored of this daughter of Benjamin Alilliken,
then living in her father's family there. At one time he went on shore to visit
her, leaving his vessel in care of a subordinate, and for neglect of duty was
cashiered and lost his commission. But he proved loyal to his lady-love, and in
due time became her husband.

Miss Jellison, in her manuscript history of Ellsworth, calls Airs. Warden
Eiiplicmia, but that name is not in the family record found in Benjamin Alilli-
ken's Bible. Others have said Capt. Varden m. Rachel Alilliken, but she was
not b. until Alay 15, 1775.

Phebe Alilliken Varden had eleven children, named as follows:

I. Harriet Childs Varden, b. in London, Eng., Aug. 17, 1784; was m.
to John Baldwin of St. George, N. B. She was named for an aunt,
Harriet Childs, who, tradition saith, remarked at the time, "Name
the child for me, and she shall be my heiress." "The money," con-
tinues tradition, "was left for this godchild, but she did not receive it."
She was the mother of three sons and one daughter.
n. Francis AI. Varden, b. in New Brunswick, B.N.A., Nov. 27, 1785;

m. James AIunroe.
in. Phebea Varden, b. in New Brunswick, B.N. A., Jan. 3, 1787.

vn. Anne Varden, b. in New Brunswick, B.N. A., July 30, 1799.
Vin. Elizabeth Varden, b. in New Brunswick, B.N. A., June 20, 1789.
rx. Robert Buffington Varden, b. in New Brunswick, B.N.A., Feb. 10,
1802, and settled on a farm in the township of Pickering, County of
Ontario, Ont., Can., 20 miles west of Toronto, in 1840, the land
adjoining his brother's homestead, and the place 'was subsequently
known as Brunswick Hill. Here he remained the residue of his days,
and was buried in Brunswick Hill churchyard.
X. Thomas Wyre Varden, b. in New Brunswick, B.N.A., Alay 6, 1805;
m. Harriet H.awkins (b. in New Brunswick, Alay 14, 1810), Nov. 12,
1825. Air. Varden settled in Pickering Township, County of Ontario,
Province of Ontario, twenty miles west of Toronto, Can., in 1840, and
remained on his farm during the balance of his life. The locality was
know-n as Brunswick Hill after the settlement there of the \'ardens.


Thomas d. at Bangor, Ont., Oct. 14, 1870, and was buried in Bruns-
wick Hill churchyard. There were eight children.
XI. N.ANCY MiLLiNGTON Varden, b. in New Brunswick, July 17, 1809.
Dr. Thomas Wyre Varden, of Gait, Ont., has an old morocco wallet that
belonged to his great-grandfather, bearing in gilt letters this inscription : " Jonah
Varden. At The Doublet. Thames Street, 1754." This was in London.

Robert Varden, son of Robert, who was a son of Capt. Robert Varden,
has in his possession a coat-of-arms that was borne by his ancestors, described
as follows: "The Varden crest is a falcon holding a serpent in its beak."
This family was of French origin.

11. Dorcas Milliken'' (1), sixth daughter of Benjamin* (2), wash, on Union
River, Apr. 9, 1769; wasm. to William Hanson, "ship-sparmaker," in 1789. He
carried on his business at St. Andrew's, N. B. When she was dying, and many
of her family were standing around her bed, she asked them all to read the
37th Psalm and the 8th chapter of Romans. These had seven children, named
as follows:

I. Sarah Hanson, b. July 31, 1791; m. James Haley, a farmer, in 1810,

sister of the late Joseph Walton of St. Andrew's, and lived at Bocabec, a locality
to which he had gone with his father when a lad. He left the British Province,
however, in 1803, and for about two years resided in Pennsylvania; probably in
Philadelphia. Returning to Bocabec in 1805, he removed to Little York, now
Toronto, in Upper Can., and was there engaged in milling. He had charge of
the first lumber-mills operated in the township of Markham, then known as the
" German Mills." He afterward purchased a share in a mill at Markham vil-
lage (then called Reeseville for local families of that name), but soon exchanged
this property for land designated "Lot number i in Concessional number 5," in
the county of York and township of Markham, containing two hundred acres.
Here he engaged in farming, and founded his permanent home, and here he d.
