the title of Lieutenant Peter. About 1675 he
married Susanna ; children: Eliza-
beth, born about 1676, married Lieutenant
Samuel Colcord, of Kingston, New Hamp-
shire; and (second) Lieutenant Samuel San-
born, of the same place ; Susanna, married
Caleb Gilman ; Mary, married Joseph Thing ;
Peter, born 1682, married Catharine Gilman;
John (2), whose sketch follows; Benjamin,
married Rachel Gilman.

(III) John (2), second son of Lieutenant
Peter and Susanna Folsom, was born at Exe-
ter, New Hampshire, about 1685, and died in
1757. He lived on a farm in the northwest
part of Exeter, and owned land in Newmarket
and Epping. His first wife was Hannah Gil-
man, and her children, as near as can be as-
certained, were: Peter (2), whose sketch fol-
lows ; Elizabeth, married a Thurston ; Mary,



married William Folsom; and Joshua, born-
1 719, married Abi Mead, and died at Epping,
New Hampshire, in 1796. The second wife
of John Folsom was Sarah, daughter of Fran-
cis Lyford, and granddaughter of Captain
Theophilus Dudley, from whom her children,
Sarah and Susanna, inherited lands, which
they deeded to others in 1748 and 1749. Sa-
rah (Lyford) Folsom died before 1748. Her
daughter, Sarah Folsom, married Abraham
Folsom, of Epping, New Hampshire ; and her
daughter, Susanna Folsom, married Nathaniel
Bean, of Exeter and Warner, New Hamp-
shire. The youngest son of John Folsom was
Joshua, born September 25, 1725. In one
place he is recorded as the seventh child,
which would make him the son of the second
wife. If that were the case, it seems strange
that he did not receive some of the Dudley
lands like his sisters Sarah and Susanna. Per-
haps the fact that he inherited the homestead
would account for his failure to be remem-
bered in the Dudley will. The date of his
birth, however, comes so near that of the
other sons as to make it quite probable that
he was the child of the first marriage, and that
his place as seventh in the list is incorrect.
The third wife of John Folsom was Mary,,
whose maiden name is unknown.

(IV) Peter (2). eldest child of John (2)
and Hannah (Gilman) Folsom, was born in
1718, probably at Exeter, New Hampshire,
and died at Gilmantown, New Hampshire, in
181 5. He lived most of his life in that part
of Newmarket called Piscassic, near the Exe-
ter line, and a part of his farm was in Exeter,
where he paid taxes many years. His lands
are described in his father's will, and the cel-
lar remains where his house stood. He had
twelve children, and later in life followed
them to Gilmanton, where he made his will in
1800. About 1739 he married Hannah Morri-
son ; children : Benjamin, born September 5,
1740; Mary, 1742, died an infant; Peter, 1744,
died an infant; Peter, August 8, 1745; Han-
nah, 1747, died young; Lydia, February 22,.
1749, died young; Judith, February 2, 1751 ;
Mary, June 17, 1754. married a Swett ; Han-
nah, October 10, 1756, married a Fifield,
(second) a Carroll; John, whose sketch fol-
lows; Lydia, 1761, married John Parsons;
Mehitable, April 7, 1764, married Jesse
Wedgwood.

(V) John (3), fourth son of Peter (2) and
Hannah (Morrison) Folsom, was born at
Newmarket, New Hampshire, April 29, 1759,
and was drowned at Newport Lake, Newport,

This surname is more com-
FELLOWS monly spelled Fellowes in

England, where the family
has lived for many centuries. The branch of
this family at Ramsey Abbey, county Hun-
tingdon, and at Haverland Hall, Norfolk, has
this coat-of-arms : Azure a fesse dancette
ermine between three lions' heads erased or,
murally crowned argent. Crest : A lion's head
erased and crowned as in the arms, charged
with a fesse dancette ermine. Motto — Patien-
tia et peseverantia cum magnanimitate. Most
of the family bear these arms. Another
branch has : Azure a fess nebulee ermine be-
tween three lions' heads erased or, out of a
cloud a dexter hand holding a club all proper.
Besides its more proper meaning of com-
panion, the word Fellow, from which this
surname is derived, is used in some dialects to
signify a young unmarried man or a servant
engaged in husbandry. Qiaucer uses the ex-
pression, "a proper felawe," to denote a well-
formed young man. The surname dates back
to the Hundred Rolls in the twelfth century,
spelled Le Felawe, Le Felawes and Fellawe.

(I) William Fellowes, of London, England,
progenitor of the American family, was doubt-
less of the same family as Urania Fellows,
who married John, the second Earl of. Ports-
mouth.

(II) William (2) Fellows, son of William
(i) Fellowes, was born in 1609. He testified
that his age was fifty years in 1659. He came
from England to Ipswich, Massachusetts, in
the ship "Planter" in 1635, and was probably
born at St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England.
He was a shoemaker by trade. His name ap-
pears often in the early town records. He
was a subscriber to the Major Denison fund
in 1648 ; had a grant on Plum Island, Castle
Neck and Hog Island in 1664. His wife was
probably a sister of Captain John Ayers. His
will was dated November 29, 1676, and proved
November 27, 1677. Children: i. Ephraim,
born 1639, removed to Plainfield, Connecti-
cut. 2. Samuel. 3. Joseph. 4. Isaac, men-
tioned below. 5. Mary. 6. Elizabeth. 7. Sa-

(HI) Benjamin, youngest child
PEIRCE of Thomas (2) and EHzabeth

(Cole) Peirce,* was born about
1662, in Woburn, and died September 25,
1739, in the same town. He was evidently a
man of considerable property, as his widow
was required to give bonds in the sum of fif-
teen hundred pounds upon the administration
of his estate. Her sureties were Samuel Rich-
ardson and Thomas Belknap, husbandmen, of
W'oburn. He died without will, and the in-
ventory of his estate was taken March 20
and presented four days later, amount of in-
ventories three hundred twenty-five pounds,
of which one hundred ninety-five pounds rep-
resented land. The appraisement was made
by Daniel Wyman, Thomas Belknap and
James Proctor, and they declared the estate
insolvent. On September 30, 1740, Thomas
Peirce, one of the heirs, complained of im-
proper administration of the estate, and in a
hearing October 6 following the judge was of
the opinion that "the inventory ought to be
amended so as to include property not taken
account of." Benjamin Peirce married. Octo-
ber 10, 1688, Mary Reed, born October 15,
1670, died June 17, 1746. Their children
were: Benjamin, Mary, Esther, Rebecca, De-
borah, Thomas and Zanshaddi.

(IV) Thomas (3), second son of Benjamin
and Mary (Reed) Peirce, was born Novem-
ber 22, 1702, in Woburn, and died March 10,
1768. in Framingham, Massachusetts. He re-
sided for a time in Leicester, whence he re-
moved to Hopkinton, and in 1747 to Framing-
ham, Massachusetts. He made his will Feb-
ruary 22, 1768, and it was proven on April
5th following. In this he names his wife
"Ledy" as executrix. He married (first) No-
vember 5, 1722, Hannah Locke, born July 11,
1 701. died before 1743. She was admitted to
the church in Hopkinton in 1730 by letter
from the church in Leicester. He married
(second) January 24, 1743, Lydia Gibbs. His
children were: Hannah, Benjamin, Thomas,
Ebenezer, Hepzibah, Timothy, James, Phoebe,
Elizabeth, Jonathan, Mary, Alartha, John and
Mehitable.

1725, probably in Leicester, and became a
large land-owner in Weston, Massachusetts,
where for seventeen years he served in one
town office or another, and in 1781 made a
loan to the town of one hundred thirty-five
pounds. He served as a revolutionary soldier
in Captain Samuel Sampson's company, par-
ticipating in the march on the Lexington
Alarm, April 19, 1775. He was subsequently
in the Continental army, being present at the
battles of Ticonderoga, White Plains and
Crown Point. In 1774 he was chosen on the
committee of correspondence, and in 1777 was
a member of a committee of five to see that
everyone abided by report to the general
court, which he had helped to draw up, to
regulate the price of certain articles. In 1781
he received thirty-three pounds one shilling
eight pence for his military services in Rhode
Island. He married, ]May 7, 1752, Mary Lam-
son, bom May 11, 1731, daughter of John and
Abigail Lamson, who removed from Reading

and Mary (Lamson) Peirce, was born Sep-
tember 18, 1758, in Weston, and died April

ninth year. He resided in Weston and New
Salem, Massachusetts, and removed to Hud-
son, Maine, in 1805. Eight years later he re-
moved to Cleveland, where he died, as above
noted. He was a merchant in New Salem,

David, Sarah, Ira and Martin.

(\'II) David, eldest son of John and

(Leach) Pierce, was born June 7, 1793, prob-
ably in New Salem, Massachusetts, and died
in 1871. The records of New Salem, covering
more than one hundred years following its
settlement, were destroyed by fire, and it is
impossible to discover anything from this
source. Family tradition, however, says that
David was born in New Salem. He was
about twelve years of age when he went with
his father to JMaine, and remained in that
state, settling in Hudson. He was a miller
and lumberman, an occupation which found
ample scope in the new district where he had
settled. He married Sarah Plummer, and
they were the parents of Sarah J., Daniel,
Charlotte. Varna, John A., Alexander Charles,
Ellen, Eliza and Clara.

his life. He married, September 10, 1868, Jen-
nie Frances Bridgham, born in Bangor,
Maine, daughter of William and Sarah

tioned below. 3. Mary C, born January 2,
1873; married Fred R. Champlin. 4. Charles
A., born December 16, 1877 ; is a farmer at
Hudson.

(IX) Hon. William B. Peirce, son of Alex-
ander Charles Peirce, was born in Hudson,
Maine, December 24, 1870. He was educated
in the public schools, at the East Corinth
Academy of Maine, and the University of
Maine, from which he graduated in 1890. He
studied law in the office of ex-Govemor Davis
and A. L. Simpson, and was admitted to the
bar August 18, 1893. He began to practice
in the city of Bangor, where he has had his
office since. He is a very successful lawyer.
In politics he is an active and influential Dem-
ocrat. He was a member of the common
council one year, of the board of aldermen
three years, and was mayor two years, 1905
and igo6. He is a member of Saint Andrew's

Robinson. Pier father was born in Bangor,
her mother in Atkinson, ]\Iaine. Mrs. Peirce
is a gifted musician, and active in church and
charitable work. Children : i. Marion, born
April 12, 1899. 2. Natalie, born September
II, 1901. 3. Harriet, born January 22, 1903.

This name, having in it the

teous, was brought into England
with the Norman Conquest. The earliest fam-
