Daniel Cusliing lived and died. He was a
man of considerable prominence and served as
selectman in 1665, and for many years after-
ward. He became a freeman in 1671, was an
active magistrate and for many years town
clerk. He tilled the latter office most effi-
ciently, and by his complete and accurate rec-
ords has rendered invaluable service to the an-
tiquarian. He was delegate to the general
court in 1680-82-95; and from 1682 and there-
after he kept a country store. A work has been

Tradition agrees that the
BRAGKETT Brackett family and all of

the name inhabiting Amer-
ica came from that portion of England by the
name of Wales ; in other words, they came
from the western portion of the island of
Great Britain. The name is not a common
one to-day in England : it occurs less than
half a dozen times in the directory of Lon-
don. It has often been contended that Brack-
ett is but a variation of Brockeft, the name
of an ancient family that can be traced to the
times of the Grusaders. Their coat-of-arms is
a shield of gold with cross patoncc (three
points to each arm of the cross, slightly
curved), sable. The crest is a young brock
or deer lodged. This would furnish a very
interesting origin for the name, but the his-



torian of the Brackett family asserts that the
claim is unproved. "There are no more rea-
sons for believing that the name Brackett is
a variation of the name Brockett than there
is for believing that the name Brackett is a
variation of any other name ending in "ett," as
Breckett or Brickett." The coat-of-arms that
has been adopted by the Brackett family is a
shield sable, three garbs (sheaves of wheat),
or. Grest, goat's head, or.

(I) Anthony Brackett, the progenitor of all
persons of the name who live in Maine or
New Hampshire or trace their descent to early
residents of those states, came to Portsmouth,
New Hampshire, some time before 1640, spent
his life there and was murdered by the In-
dians, September 28, 1691. In 1640. Anthony
Brackett with several others who lived within
the present limits of Portsmouth, signed a
deed for a glebe. This conveyed to the war-
dens of the Episcopal church for its benefit
and the benefit of the local clergyman fifty
acres of land in Strawberry Bank, now Ports-
mouth. Anthony Brackett was a member of
this church till his death. It is thought that
his original home was with the other early
settlers at Little Harbor, but from 1649 till the
end of his life he lived on Brackett road near
Saltwater brook. On August 13. 1649, the
selectmen granted a lot of land to "'Anthony
Brakit": on January 13, 1652, the town voted
thirty acres to "Anthony Brackite."" At vari-
ous other times up to 1660 he received differ-
ent grants amounting in all to over two hun-
dred acres. Anthony Brackett was chosen one
of the selectmen in 1656, and for several years
thereafter. In 1665, when the king's com-
missioners for the settlement of affairs in the
colonies arrived in New Hampshire, a petition
was presented them signed by sixty-one of the
settlers, setting forth their hardships and
grievances, and praying to be relie\ed from
Puritan rule, which meant Massachusetts Bay.
One of the signers to this petition was An-
thonv Brackett. In 1688, six years after New
Hampshire had become a royal province, An-
thony Brackett with the other settlers signed
a petition for the removal of Granfield as
governor. Anthony Brackett suffered much
from the ravages of Indians during his life-
time. Thomas Brackett, one of his sons, was
killed at Falmouth, now Portland, Maine, in
1676. The children of Thomas were re-
deemed from captivity by their grandfather,
with whom three of them abided for several
years. The Indians wrought great desolation
in Maine, and from 1690 the neighborhood of
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, was virtually on

the frontier. The slaughter of Septemher 28,
1691, is thus descrihed by an old chronicler:
"The sons of Francis Rand went a fishing;
the sons of ould (ioodman lirackett were in
the salt marsh and with no suspicion of danger.
The settlers went about their usual avocations.
Early in the afternoon a party of Indians came
from the eastward in canoes, landed at Sandy
beach, left the garrison there unmolested, and
attacked the homes of the defenseless ones,
killing and capturing twenty-one persons.
Among the killed was Francis Rand, one of
the first settlers. When his sons came in
from fishing they followed the Indians over to
Bracketts. fired upon them and frightened
them away. The sons of Anthony Brackett
who had the guns with them ran to the gar-
rison at Odiorne's Point." Fifteen people
were killed in this massacre, among them An-
thony Brackett. Their graves, marked by
rough stones, can still be found on a little
knoll covered with bushes, and entirely sur-
rounded by the salt marsh. The place is near
Saltwater brook, in what is now the town of
Rye, Xew Hampshire.

Anthony Brackett may have had some pre-
monition of his coming end, for he made his
will September 11, 1691, but a few weeks be-
fore his death. Among the provisions is
this : "my housall goods I leve with my wifif
for hur one use." We do not know the name
of Anthony Brackett's wife, nor the dates of the
birth of his five children: I. Captain Anthony,
who became a prominent citizen of Falmouth,
Maine, and was killed by the Indians there in
1689. 2. Elinor, who married John Johnson,
December 26. 1661. 3. Thomas, whose sketch
follows. 4. Jane, married ]\Iathias Haines,
April 19. 1667, (second) Isaac Marston, De-
cember 28, 1671. 5. John, who lived at Rye,
and was the only male member of the family
who died a natural death.

(II) Thomas, second son of Anthony
Brackett, was probably born at Sandy beach,
now a part of the town of Rye, New' Hamp-
shire, about 1635. Soon after 1662 he re-
moved to Casco, Maine, and was there shot
down in his field by the Indians, .-Vugust 11,
1676. He was prominent in the new settle-
ment, and was one of the selectmen in 1672.
He married into an influential family, his wife
being a granddaughter of George Cleeve. In
167 1 Thomas Brackett entered into an agree-
ment with his wife's mother by which he
agreed to provide for her care and main-
tenance, receiving in return a grant of land.
Thomas Brackett was only about forty years
old when his life was sacrificed. The follow-



ing vivid description is given by the historian
of the Brackett family:

''When, on the capture of Captain Anthony
Brackett and his family, August 11, 1676, the
Indians divided, a part passing around Back
cove and a part onto the Neck, the first house
in the course of the latter was Thomas Brack-
ett's, on the southerly side of the Neck. Be-
tween the houses of the two brothers was an
unbroken forest. It is thought that the In-
dians went along the northerly side of the
Neck until they had passed the farm of Thom-
as Brackett. In their course they met John,
the son of George Munjoy, and another, Isaac
Wakely, and shot the two. Others who were
with or near them, fled down the Neck to give
the alarm, and thereupon the Indians retreated
in the direction of Thomas Brackett's house.
That morning three men were on their way
to Anthony Brackett's farm to harvest grain.
They probably rowed over the river from Pur-
pooduck point and had left their canoe near
Thomas Brackett's house. From there they
crossed the Neck towards Anthony's house, to
where they went near enough to learn of the
attack by the Indians on his family; the three
hastened onto the Neck, perhaps over the
course pursued by the Indians, to give the
alarm. On their way they heard guns fired
'whereby it seems two men (perhaps ]\Iunjoy'
and Wakely) were killed.' Thereupon the
three fled in the direction of Thomas Brack-
ett's house to reach their canoe. The Indians
reached the farm, nearly at the same time as
did the men, who saw Thomas Brackett shot
down while at work in his field. Two of the
men succeeded in reaching the canoe ; the
third, not so fleet of foot, hid in the marsh and
witnessed the capture of Thomas Brackett's
wife and children. The three men escaped.
Among the Indians who were concerned in the
killing of Thomas Brackett was Megunnaway,
one of the braves of King Philip. All of the
residents on the Neck, except Thomas Brack-
ett, his family, John Alunjoy and Isaac Wake-
ly, succeeded in reaching Alunjoy's garrison
house, which stood on JMunjoy's hill at the
end of the Neck."

Thomas Brackett married Mary Mitton,
daughter of Michael and Elizabeth (Cleeve)
i\Iitton. Children: i. Lieutenant Joshua, of
Greenland, who became a man of wealth and
prominence. 2. Sarah, married John Hill, of
Portsmouth. 3. Samuel, whose sketch fol-
lows. 4. Mary, who married Christopher
Mitchell, of Kittery. Maine.

(HI) Samuel, second son of Thomas and
Mary (Mitton) Brackett, was born at Fal-



STATE OF xMAINE.

mouth, Alaine, about 1672, and died at Kit-
ten-, Maine, April 27, 1752. At the time
his father was killed, Samuel was taken cap-
tive by the Indians, and he was but six years
of age when his mother died. It is traditional
that upon his redemption by his grandfather,
Samuel went to live with his Aunt Martha in
Kittery, ilaine. This aunt's husband, John
Grove, was a Quaker, who afterwards moved
to Crompton, Rhode Island, to escape the per-
secution of his Puritan neighbors. It was
probably owing to his early association with
this family that Samuel Brackett became im-
bued with more liberal religious views than
were then prevalent, and later in life came
in conflict with the church officials. Samuel
Brackett had his full share of suft'ering from
the Indians. When he had reached the age
of sixteen, a war broke out which continued
for ten years; so early in life he became a
soldier, and was a minute-man, every ready
for duty. When he and his wife were first
married, they lived in garrison houses much
of the time ; and on one occasion Samuel Brack-
ett escaped death by being fleet of foot. Dur-
ing the Indian war which lasted from 1703
to 1713, Samuel Brackett received a long
knife cut in the abdomen, which let out the
intestines. He hastily replaced the parts, and
by pressing his hand tightly over the opening
was enabled to get to the garrison house.
Probably his subsequent length of years (he
was eighty when he died) was due to his youth
and strength rather than to any surgical skill
that was available at the time. If his wound
healed without further trouble, Samuel Brack-
ett may have served in some of the wars
against the French, though we have no posi-
tive evidence of his having done so. Notwith-
standing all the desolation of the times, the
Puritan officials did not relax their rigor, and
in June, 1696, Samuel Brackett was charged
with the crime of "not frequenting the public
worship on the Lord's day.'' Later he and his
wife were charged with a similar offence, and
he was lined five shillings and she was ad-
monished. It would seem in those troublous
times, when men were in hourly danger from
a savage foe, that they might have been spared*
the persecutions of the saints. Samuel Brack-
ett owned several tracts of land in Berwick,
which was then a part of Kittery, Maine ; and
the site of his house and the well that he dug
are still pointed out. From the inventory of
his estate, it is probable that he accumulated
considerable property. His wife died soon
after he did, and the list of her clothing, which
was included in his estate, would seem to in-



dicate something like affluence. Tlic list enu-
merates ■■7 gowns, 3 silk crepe ones, 8 petti-
coats, 3 under-vests, 2 silk hoods, 1 riding
hood, I pair of stays, black gauze handker-
chief, black fan, i pr. of sleeve buttons. 3 pr.
of cotton gloves, muslin and linen aprons,
considerable number of other articles."

On November 25, 1694, Samuel Brackett
married Elizabeth, daughter of Isaac Botts,
of Berwick, j\Iaine. She was about a year
old when her father was killed by the' In-
dians in an attack on Salmon Fall's in Ber-
wick, October 15, 1675. Upon her mother's
remarriage, Elizabeth Botts became a member
of the family of Moses Spencer, with whom
she was Hving at the time of her marriage.
Children of Samuel and Elizabeth (Botts)
Brackett were: i. Samuel (2), whose sketch
follows. 2. Mary, married Thomas Tuttle, of
Dover. 3. Bathsheba, married Jonathan Ab-
bott. 4. Elizabeth, married Samuel Abbott.
5. Hannah, married Samuel Thompson. 6.
Dorothy, baptized January 21, 1728.

(IV) Samuel (2), eldest child of Samuel
(i) and Elizabeth (Botts) Brackett, was
born September 6, 1695, at Berwick, Alaine,
and died December 31, 1786. He lived on
the westerly slope of Blackberry hill, about
three and one-half miles south from the house
of his father, and the farm that he cleared
is still owned by his descendants, having
passed from father to son through live gen-
erations. In various conveyances of land he
is described as "turner," though it is prob-
able that farming was his chief occupation.
The Second Church of Berwick was organ-
ized in 1755, and Samuel (2) Brackett and
his wife were charter members. .He was
chosen deacon, June 12, 1755, and elder, July
21, 1768. He was selectman in 1749 and 1750,
and probably held other town offices. On Au-
gust II, 1720, Deacon Samuel (2) Brackett
married (first) Sarah, daughter of Job and
Charity (Nason) Emery, of Berwick. She
was one of a family of fourteen, was born
February 4, 1700, and died December 20,
1742, shortly after giving birth to her eleventh
child. On September 12, 1743, Deacon Sam-
uel (2) Brackett married (second) Airs. Abi-
gail Cass, widow of Thomas Cass and daugh-
ter of Jonathan Banfill, of Portsmouth. Chil-
dren were: i. John, born June 29, 1721. 2.
Isaac, October 7, 1722. 3. Samuel, August 5,
1724. 4. James, whose sketch follows. 5.

(\') lames, fourth son of Samuel (2) and
Sarah (Emery) Brackett, was born April 10,
1726, at Berwick, Maine, and died at China,
Maine, January 3, 1825. Deacon James Brack-
ett lived in his native town for sixty-eight
years: in 1794, in company with his youngest
"son fohn. he moved to Vassalboro, Maine,
where he dwelt for sixteen years; and in 1810
moved again with his son to China, Maine,
where he spent the last fourteen years of his
life. Deacon Brackett was elected selectman
of Berwick in 1763, 1775 to 1778 inclusive,
and held many minor town otfices. He served
in the French and Indian war, and the gun
which he carried was preserved for several
generations. There is a tradition that during
this war he brained an Indian with a goad-
stick. .Although too old at the time of the
revolution to take an active part, he was most
earnest in patriotic measures, and sent droves
of hogs, sheep and cattle to Boston when that
town was closed to commerce in 1774. On
April 10, 1750, Deacon James Brackett mar-
ried Margery, daughter of Benjamin and Pa-
tience (Nason) Lord, who was baptized No-
vember ID. 1736, in Berwick, and died July
