seem to have settled there cvcntuallv.
« (I) Philip Hatch, immigrant ancestor of
the Maine family, was born in England about
1600. According to his own deposition made
July 6, 1660. he was living in 1638 (twenty-
two years before) with John Winter, when
Winter and Trelawny mowed the marsh
grass on both sides of the Swurrumke river
at Spurwink. This land was subsequently
conveyed to Ambrose Boden bv Robert Jor-



dan, and the title was attacked. Philip Hatch

married Patience . He was a fi'-her-

man. He mortgaged his property at York.
July 18, 1663, to Captain Bryan Pendleton,
of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This mort-
gage was subsequently released by James
Pendleton, son and heir of Bryan. He bought
his homestead November 2t,. 1648, of George
Parker, "house out-houses and field enclosed"
in .\gamenticus (York), adjoining William
Dixie. His widow, some years after his death,
made an agreement with Henry Simpson. Au-
gust II, as to her occupancy of land in York.
He had one .son Samuel, mentioned below.
Perhaps other children, including the wife of
Henry Simpson.

(in Samuel, son of Philip Hatch, was bom
about I'l.so, in York. He boutjht a home-
stead of three hundred acres May 30. 1684,
beyond the Ogunquit river, and three acres
near Wheelwright's Neck, in Wells, of Mary
P.olles. The history of \\'ells states that he
came there about 1670. The town granted to
him, Daniel Littlefield and William Frost, lo-
cation for a mill on the L^pper Falls of Little
river, and in 1699 gave them one hundred
acres at the head of the lots first laid out. He
petitioned for the abatement of taxes after
the Indian wars. He left the homestead to
his son Joseph. His will was dated February
7, 1740. He was over ninety years old at the
time of his death. He bought of Caleb Kim-
hall. July ID, 1710, one hundred acres in
Wells, laid out to Joseph Credifer; he bought
of Ezekiel Knight and wife December 1 1 ,

Edmund Goodenough,
GOODNOUGH Goodenow or Good-
now, with his wife Anne
and two sons, John and Thomas, aged three
and one years, and a servant named Richard
Sanger, aged nineteen, made up one of the
families among the one hundred and ten pas-
sengers "great and little" of the "goode
shipp the 'Confidence' of London," that sailed
from Southampton, England, April 11. 1638,
of which passengers twenty-eight are recorded
as having settled in Sudbury, Massachusetts
Bay Colony, and formed the nucleus of the
future tow'n set off from common land known
as "The New Plantation by Concord," and es-
tablished with church and town government
September 4, 1639. Captain Edmund Good-
enow. Lieutenant Jonah Haynes, John Good-
enow, John Bingham and Joseph Freeman
constituted the committee appointed by the
general court of ^Massachusetts Colony to pur-
chase from the Indians the land so occupied.
On the same ship and among the list of pas-
sengers are given the names of John Good-
enow. of Semley. Wiltshire, a member of the
committee named above, and his brother,
Thomas Goodenow, of Shasbury, both prob-
ably brothers of Ecfmond. With the brothers
came their families, and as Edmond's two
sons were named John and Thomas, some con-
fusion has resulted in the tracing of the vari-
ous lines of descent, the proverbial "three
brothers" causing the confusion.

(I) Edmund Goodnow was a yeoman and
an original proprietor of the town of Sudbury
in 1639. ^^^ XaoV the freeman's oath May 13,
1640. In the history of the town he is named
on records of 1648 as having been named with
W'illiam Brown to direct the building of a
pound, so necessary in the new towns to pro-
tect the fields and gardens of the settlers from
the strav cattle owned by their neighbors, but
not properly fenced in so as to do no damage.
His taxable estate in the town of Sudbury
was twenty-four acres, and for his services as
deputy to the general court he received an
additional six acres of upland and five acres

of meadow land, and his son in 165 1 was em-
ployed to beat the drum twice every election
day, and twice every forenoon and twice every
afternoon upon the Lord's Day to give notice
of church services, and for this the town paid
Edmond Goodnow twenty shillings annually.
The records of 1654 named Edmund Goodnow
and Thomas Noyes and William Kerley as
having been apjiointed b\ the general court as
commissioners to lay out a highway towards
Lancaster, through Sudbury. Edmund Good-
now was selectman of the town 1641 ; deputy
to the general court of Massachusetts Bay
Colony 1645 and 1650: commissioner to try
and determine small matters of dispute, in
1661. -Xs leader in the militia company and
lieutenant of the train band he. during the ab-
sence in England of Captain Pelham, was in
command of the bands. He removed to Marl-
borough, which had been organized as a town
May 31, 1660, through the efforts of inhabit-
ants of Sudbury. Among the original peti-
tioners to the general court in May, 1656, is
named Thomas Goodnow, and the English
plantation thus created was called Whip-
enfTeradge, from the Indian hill Whipsuf-
fenecke, and contained 29.419 acres. The pro-
prietors of the English plantation met Septem-
ber 25, 1656, and in 1660 thirty-eight house
lotc. incluoing one for the minister and one
for the smith, were set ofT and confirmed to
their several proprietors, these grants taking
up IcFS tban one thousand acres of the town-
shi]). The balance of the lanrl known as com-
mons was left subject to future grants.
Thornas Goodnow was one of the first select-
men, nnd Rev. William Brimsmead their first
minister. The town records between the first
settlement and April 27, 1699, are missing,
and we fail to find any official record of Ed-
mund Goodnow as a resident of the town, but
it if claimed that he settled on a lot on North
street, east of the meeting house, and next to
one of John Haynes. Edmund Goodnow died
/pril :;, 1688. and was buried in the Sudbury
b - rving rround beside his wife, who died
May 9, 1675. The Sudbury church records of
•he children of Edmund and .-\nne Goodnow
is as follows: John, born in England. 1635;
Thomas: Hannah. November 28, 1639, mar-
ries', April, 1656, lames Pendleton": Mary,
August 2=;. 1640: Sarah. March 17, 1642-43,

Edmund, married Dorothy Maiin.

(II) John, son of Edmund and Anne Good-
now, was born in Dunkead. Weltshirc, Eng-
land, in 1635, and was brought as an infant to
Ma^^achusetts Bay Colony in the ship "Con-



fidence" in 1638. He was brought up in town
of Sudbury, of which he was a citizen, to the
age of thirty-eight before he could take part
in the government of the town. He was a
farmer, and in 1636 married Mary Axtell. He
was made a freeman in 1673, and March 26,
1677, Peter King, Thomas Reed Sr., John
Goodnow, Joseph Freeman and Jonathan
Smith were granted liberty to build a saw mill
on Upper Hop brook, above Peter Noyes's
corn mill, at a place viewed by a committee
of the town, which if they do they are to have
twenty tons of tiinber and earth for the dams.
Mary (Axtell) Goodnow died in Sudbury,

ber I. 1674. and was brought up presumably
on his father's farm. His wife, Patience
Goodnow, died in Sudbury, February 23.

bury, Connecticut, August 21, 1865, and they
have one child, Jeannie Elder, born at Dan-
bury, Connecticut, April 21, 1888, educated in
the public schools of Brooklyn.

Jeremiah Keeler, ancestor of Betty Ray-
mond (Keeler) Pierce, participated in the bat-
tle of Ridgefield, being then a lad of about
seventeen. His young spirit then became kin-
dled with patriotic fever, and thenceforth he
entered boldly into the service of his country.
Joining the Continental army he quickly rose
to the position of orderly sergeant in the Light
Infantry under Lafayette. He was often
called upon to perform hazardous and im-
portant service requiring skill and judgment,
and for his bravery on one occasion was pre-
sented with a sword by General Lafayette.
During the last days of the siege of York-
town two redoubts greatly annoyed the men at
w-ork in the trenches by a flanking fire. It
was determined to capture the redoubts by
assault. This duty was entrusted to the Amer-
ican Light Infantry under Lafayette, and Ser-



geant Keeler was among the foremost in
scaling the breastworks. Sergeant Keeler
witnessed the surrender of Cornwallis, and
after the disbandment of the army in 1783 he
returned to Ridgefield on foot, using the
sword presented to him by Lafayette as a
cane. The lower part of the leather scabbard
was worn out in the long homeward tramp.
The sword and scabbard are carefully pre-
served. Upon reaching Ridgefield he settled
a few hundred yards beyond the Westchester
line, in the town of Lewisboro, wdiere in 1788
he built himself a house in which he passed the
remainder of his days. He was the father of
twelve children.

Timothy Keeler, grandson of Jeremiah
Keeler, and father of Betty Raymond
(Keeler) Pierce, was engaged as a civil engi-
neer and in railroading. He married Harriet
Sherwood, who Ixjre him the following named
children : Thaddeus, Betty Raymond, afore-
mentioned ; Joseph \V., John, Girard.



To indulge in ancient Eng-
EMMERTON lish genealogy we can go

back to the town of Em-
berton, in northern Buckinghamshire, to find
the genesis of the name. After the battle of
Hastings the land from which Emberton in
the hundred arch deanery of Newport-Pog-
nell in Northern Buckinghamshire took its
name fell to the share of spoils allotted to the
Bishop of Constance. Paganus de Emberton
held one knight's fee as tenant of the Paga-
nells in 1168. William de Emberton, son of
Paganus, succeeded his father before 1219, as
at that date Robert de Emberton was rector
of Emberton church founded by the family.
Nicholas de Emberton was "'copellanus" of
Lavendon, a neighboring village in 1262, and
Godfrey Markham de Emberton was pre-
sented rector to Okiney cum Petsoe, a neigh-
boring town, in 1326, and w-as succeeded in
1349 by William Markham et de Emberton.
Then coming down to 1567 w-e find Robert
Emerton, carpenter of Stepney Middlesex. In
1597 Robert Emcrton's will recorded in the
archdeaconry of St. Albans, and his business
given as shoemaker. His sons were : Will-
iam. Thomas, Richard and Benedict. In 1603
Thomas Emerton, of Chauncy Lane, London,
makes his will, but appears to be childless. In
1625 the rolls of parchment containing the
record of the court of London names Sir
William Compton ct al and William Emerton
et al, as parties to a suit at law. In 1638 Ar-
thur Emerton, "lately dwelling beyond the
seas," owed Walter Boone and his wife Jo-

anna. In 1652 Jeffrey Emmerton, of Beach-
ampton, Bucks, in his will mentions sons Rich-
ard, Jeffrey, William, Robert. In 1652 John
Emerton. of the Parish of St. Thomas South-
work, survey in his will mentions brothers :
Thomas and William. 1654 we have Michael
Emmerton, gardener, Surry. 1656, W'illiam
Emerton, yeoman. Heath. 1657, Peter Emer-
ton, husbandman, Soulbery, Bucks. 1659,
James Emberton, blacksmith. Putney. 1702,
Richard Emerton, Gentleman, London, with
sons Richard, John and Samuel, his will
signed "Emarton." 1703. Francis Emerton,
citizen and baker of London. 1710, William
Emmerton, Esquire, of the Temple, married,
in 1691, Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John
Beale, sheriff of Kent, 1665. 1716, Thomas
Emmerton, Gentleman, of Norcott Hill, in
will, mentions brother William, but no sons.
1745. John Emmerton, Esquire, of Thromp-
ton, Nottinghamshire, mentions no sons in his
will. When or from whence the parents of
James and John Emmerton came or what re-
lationship they held to each other is not
known. It is supposed that John Emmerton,
born in Chebacco, ^lassachusetts, June 23,
1714, died in Salem, Massachusetts, April 10,
1784, and had thirteen children, all born in
Essex county, was the son of a Scotchman and
came to America as one of the soldiers of
George II, and settled in the district of Maine
and removed to Chebacco, Massachusetts,
subsequently. Having lived and married in
the same vicinity, and born, one in 1712 and
the other in 1714, it is natural to suppose they
were brothers. It is of Joseph and his tribe
of descendants that we have to deal in this
sketch, but Job had a tribe of descendants,
probably not as large, yet sufficiently numer-
ous, to occupy a prominent place. — New Eng-
land genealogy.

(I) Joseph Emmerton was born probably
in the district of Maine about 1712 and
drowned in the Chebacco river, Chebacco,
Massachusetts, September 27, 1782, in the
eightieth vear of his age. He was corporal
in Captain Foster's company at the siege of
Louisburg in 1745, and he is named at various
