in England, the relatives of Rev. Thomas
Prince presented him with the family coat-of-
arms, which was granted by Queen Elizabeth,
and is as follows : Arms : Gules, a saltire, or,
surmounted of a cross, engrailed ermine.
Crest : Out of a ducal coronet, or, a cubit
arm, habited gules, cufifed ermine, holding in
the hand, proper, three pine-apples of the first,
stalked and leaved, vert. From reliable rec-
ords we learn that in the reigns of Queen
Elizabeth and King James I, the Rev. John
Prince, Bachelor of Arts, of Oxford, was rec-
tor of the parish of East Shetiford, Berkshire
county, and was a rigid churchman all his life.
He married, 1609, Elizabeth, daughter of Wal-
ter and Ann Toldervy, and granddaughter of
the Rev. Dr. John Tolderbury, of the Uni-
versity of Oxford, the family name being
spelled variously. Of their four sons and
seven daughters, all became Dissenters. The
eldest son, John, is mentioned below ; Francis,
the second son, became a merchant in London,
England.

( I ) John, eldest son of Rev. John and Eliza-
beth (Tolderbury) Prince, was born in Eng-
land, in 1610, and died in Hull, Massachu-
setts, August 16, 1676. He was educated in
Oxford, but on account of his dissenting prin-
ciples received no degree, and to escape the
persecutions of Archbishop Laud, like many
others, he emigrated to America in 1633, and
located first at \\'atertovvn, Massachusetts.
After spending a short time at Hingham, Mas-
sachusetts, where he received a grant of land
in the Broad Cove meadows, was made free-
man in 1635, he finally settled at Lighthouse
Island, Hull, Massachusetts, about 1638, be-
came prominent in the affairs of the com-
munity, and was for nearly thirty years ruling
elder, and died there greatly respected. His
will, which was dated May 9, 1676, mentions
all of his children with the exception of Ben-
jamin. Elder John married (first) in Water-
town, May, 1637, Alice Honor, who died about
1668; he married (second) Ann Barstow,
widow of William Barstow, of Scituate, Mas-
sachusetts, whose daughter, Martha Barstow,
married Samuel, fourth son of Elder John and
Alice (Honor) Prince, so that a part of her
direct descendants also bore the name of
Prince. The children of Elder John Prince
were: 1. John, married Rebecca (probably
Vickerow, daughter of George and Rebecca
(Phippeny) \'ickerow, who lived next neigh-
bor to Elder Prince ; she w-as a cousin to Job's
wife. 2. Elizabeth, married Josiah Loring. 3.
Joseph, married Joanna Morton, and died in
Quebec. 4. Martha, married Christopher



Wheaton. 5. Job, shipmaster, married Re-
becca Phippeny, and was lost at sea. 6. Sam-
uel, who married his stepsister, Martha Bar-
stow. 7. Benjamin, died in Jamaica, West In-
dies, prior to the death of his father. 8. Isaac,
married Mary, daughter of John and Mary
(Brewster) Turner. 9. Thomas, see below.

(II) Thomas, seventh son and youngest
child of Elder John Prince, was born at Hull,
Massachusetts, July 8, 1658, and died at Bar-
badoes. West Indies, 1704. He settled at Sci-
tuate, Massachusetts, and married, December
23, 1685, Ruth, daughter of John and Mary
(Brewster) Turner, and twin sister of Mary,
the wife of his brother Isaac. She was born
in 1663, and after the death of Thomas Prince,
married Israel Sylvester, of Duxbury. Her
father, John Turner, came from England to
Plymouth, M-assachusetts, in 1628, with his
parents, Humphrey and Lydia Turner, and
there married iMary, daughter of Jonathan
and Lucretia Brewster, and granddaughter of
Elder William Brewster, born in Holland dur-
ing the sojourn of the Pilgrims in that coun-
try. The children of Thomas and Ruth (Tur-
ner) Prince were: i. Thomas, born July 10,
1686. 2. James, born in 1687, married De-
borah Robinson. 3. Ruth, born in 1689. 4.
Benjamin, see forward. 5. Job, born in 1695,
married Abigail Kimball : became the ances-
tor of a number of families of Boston, and
has many descendants throughout New Eng-
land.

(III) Benjamin, third son and fourth child
of Thomas and Ruth (Turner) Prince, was
born at Hull, Massachusetts, February 28,
1693-94, and died December 5, 1737. For a
few years after his marriage he resided in
Duxbury, Massachusetts, after which in 1727
he removed to North Yarmouth, Maine, with
his wife and five children. This was the third
and permanent settlement of North Yarmouth,
and in the division of land he was appor-
tioned Lot Number One on the Foreside (now-
called Prince's Point), including Basket
Island. November 18, 1730, with eight others,

, he founded a Congregational church, which
was the first ecclesiastical organization of the
town, and the tenth in jMaine. He was promi-
nent in public affairs, an enterprising and use-
ful citizen, was elected collector of the town,
(Jctober 14, 1734, and was sent as one of a
committee of three with the town clerk, March
22, 1736, to Bridgewater, to interview Rev.
Mr. Keith with reference to his accepting a
call to the new church. The town allowed
him fifteen pounds for his traveling expenses.
He was married, April 17, 1717, to Abiel, born

in 1697, died September 15. 1744, daughter

(IV) Paul, second son and child of Ben-
jamin and Abiel (Nelson) Prince, was born at
Du.xbury, May 14, 1720 (O. S.). He re-
moved to North Yarmouth with his parents.
At the time of his marriage, as it was deemed
essential in those days to be within reach of a
place of refuge, he and his young wife re-
sided for a few years in the "Loring Block
House," with their brother-in-law, Solomon
Loring, and there their eldest children were
born. Soon after 1745 they chose for a per-
manent home a spot near the Scales garrison,
and on it built a one-storied house. It is said
that this never had a room finished off, al-
though the parents were w-ealthy enough to
give each son one hundred acres of land and
each daughter fifty acres. Some of this lantl
is still in the possession cf the heirs of those
to whom it was originally given. The house
stood on the site of the dwelling now occu-
pied by Captain Reucl Drinkwater. In Au-
gust, 1762, Paul Prince, Yeoman, sold his
inheritance, the farm numbered as Lot Number
One, or Prince's Point, to John Drinkwater.
The original deed is now in the possession of
John B. Drinkwater. Mr. Prince was an able
and energetic man and sustained his share in
public and private trusts. When the difficul-
ties arose between England and the colonies
which led to the revolutionary war, he warmly
espoused the cause of his country. He mar-
ried, in North Yarmouth, September 8, 1743,

is) Cushing, of Hingham, Massachusetts, and
had children: i. Sarah, married Eliphalct
Greely. 2. Cushing, married Hannah Blan-

Sweetser, (second) Nathaniel Weeks. 4.
Hannah, married Thomas, son of Joseph
Prince, the "Blind Preacher," and fifth in

married Onesiphorus Fisher. 6. David, see
forward. 7. Elsie (Alice), married William
Sweetser. 8. Paul, married Sarah Southworth.
9. Pyam, a sea captain, who married (first)
Martha Leach Drinkwater, (second) Susan
Huff, widow of Captain Malcolm. 10. Ammi,
w^ho entered the army one year before the close
of the revolutionary war, served in the disas-
trous "Bagaduce_ Expedition," and married
Desire Sylvester.'

(V) David, second son and sixth child of
Paul and Hannah (Cushing) Prince, was born
May 7, 1753, and died February 3, 1849. ^'^^

\Vc must go back to the misty

ST. CLAIR Northland to find the well-
head of this ancient and noble
family and to the year of grace 888. It was
long before suniaines were known, and we
begin the table with :

\l) Rogenwald. Earl (if .Macrlc in Norway,
who was called the "Rich," was a great favor-
ite of King Harold, whose relative he mar-
ried. He received a grant of the Orkney
Islands, which his descendants ruled for five
centuries.

(II) Prince RoUo, son of Rogenwald, was
a half savage chief, but ambitious, energetic
and resourceful, \isions of conquests to the
south found lodgment in his busy brain. Fit-
ting out a fleet of dragon ships and summon-
ing" his faithful followers, he set sail in search
of booty and aggrandizement. Sighting the
fair and' alluvial plains of Normandy, he there
made his landfall and committed grand lar-
ceny of a portion of that well-favored prov-
ince. In 912 he met near St. Clair Castle the
imbecile, Charles, surnamed the Simple, then
King of France, and easily obtained from that
weakling a concession of the province. He
embraced the Catholic faith and married King
Charles' daughter, Griclle by name, and be-
came the fir.st Duke of Normandy. He abdi-
cated in favor of his eldest son in 917 and died
in 931. Children: William, the Longsword,
Robert. Earl of Corbueil, and Gerlotte, who
married the Earl of Poitiers.

(HI) William, the Longsword, son of
Prince Rollo and Grielle, was born in Nor-
mandy and succeeded his father in the duke-
dom. He married a daughter of Count Rob-
ert, of \'ermadon, and his other wife was
Sporta. Longsword was assassinated in 948.

(IV) Richard, third Duke of Normandy,
the son of "Longsword," was born in Nor-
mandy, dying in 960. He married a daughter
of Hugh, Count of Paris, and (second) Gon-
nora, a princess of Norway. Children : Rich-
ard, Robert, Earl of Evreux, Malger, Hed-
wiga. who married GefTrey, Earl of Brittany ;
and Emma, who married Ethelred, second
king of England and her second husband was
Canute, the Great.

(\') Malger. third son of Richard, was
created Earl of Corbueil and Archbishop of
Rouen. He was great-uncle to William the
Conqueror. It was he who adopted the sur-
name of St. Clere after the town and castle
in which he lived, and was among the first
to use a surname. It was then spelled as
pronounced "Sinclair." Children: Hamo,
Walderne and Hubert.



(\I) Walderne. second son of Malger Sin-
clair, was born in Normandy in about 1006.
His home was not the famous castle from
which the name was taken, but at the castle of
St. Lo, the abode of his descendants for many
years. He and his three sons rallied around
\\'illiam the Conqueror at Hastings, England,
on that eventful October day in 1066, in the
irrepressible conflict between Norman and
Sa.xon. As we know, the former won and
Walderne's allotment of land was on the Med-
way river. He was living as late as 1075.
For a wife he took his cousin, Margaret,
daughter of the fourth Duke of Normandy.
Children : Richard, Britel and William.

(X'H) William (2), youngest son of Wal-
derne and Margaret Sinclair, was born in
Normandy about 1028. Yellow of hair, regu-
lar of feature, symmetrical of proportions, his
beaut)- of person won for him the sobriquet of
