The Fuller name i - numerously
FLT-LER represented among the early

settlers of New England, and it
has the honorable distinction of appearing
twice on the "Mayflower'" list. Both Edward
and Samuel Fuller were passengers on this
pioneer vessel.

( I ) Dr. Samuel Fuller, the first surgeon
and pliysician in Plymouth Colony, came to
America in the "Mayflower," 1620. He died
at Plymouth, some time during 1633, for his
will is dated July 30, and was proven October
28 that year. In this document he mentions
his two children, his cousin Samuel Fuller,
also his dwelling-house in town, and his house
and lands at Smelt river. Dr. Samuel Fuller
was a Pilgrim in very truth, for he had been
associated with Rev. John Robinson at Ley-
den. Holland, and was a deacon in the original
church there, becoming a deacon in the Ply-
mouth church after his removal to this coun-
try. Dr. Fuller was thrice married, but there
appear to have been no children by the first
two wives. Before his migration he married
Elsie Glascock, in England, but nothing fur-
ther is known about her. In 1613, while in
Leyden, Holland, he married Agnes, daugh-
ter of Alexander Carpenter, who lived but a
short time: because in 1617 he married his
third wife, Bridget Lee, of Leyden. Dr. Sam-
uel and Mrs. Bridget (Lee) Fuller had one
child born in Holland, who died shortly after
removal to this country, and two others, Sam-
uel ('2) and Mercy, born at Plymouth. Dr.
Fuller's wife for some reason did not come
with her husband in the "Mayflower," but fol-
lowed three years later in the ship "Ann,"
which sailed in 1823, bringing their eldest
child with lier. Mercy, only daughter of Dr.
Samuel and Bridget (Lee) Fuller, was born
in this country, and married Ralph James.

(II) Rev. Samuel (2), son of Dr. Samuel
(i) and Bridget (Lee) Fuller, was born in
the Plymouth Colony, ^lassachusetts, in 1624,
and died at Middleboro, Massachusetts, some
time before October i, 1695. ^^^ was a dea-
con in the church at Pl}mouth, and was first
minister of the church at i\liddleboro. He
was not ordained there till December 26, 1694,
shortly before his death : but he had preached
to that people for about sixteen years previ-
ously. He was considered a sincere godly man
and a useful preacher, and his death was
greatly lamented. Nothing is known about
his wife except that she is called Elizabeth in
his will ; and the Plympton town records make
this statement : "The aged widow, Elizabeth
Fuller, widow and relict of Rev. Samuel
Fuller, formerly minister of Middleboro, de-
ceased, at Plympton, Nov. lithe, 1713." Ac-
cording to the will. Rev. Samuel (2) Fuller
had three sons and four daughters at the time
of his decease. The sons were Samuel (3),

was under age in 1695. The daughters were
Mercy, wife of Daniel Cole; Experience, wife
of James Wood ; Elizabeth, wife of Samuel

To one who looks down
STURTEVANT the long vista of the

ages as it is veiled by
the light of history, there appears from gen-
eration to generation a recurrence of the fam-
ily characteristics that were strong in the fam-
ily lines hundreds of years before. In the race
of sturdy Sturtevants the same quiet energy,
persistent perseverance, honest industry, self-
reliance, regard for truth, belief in the ulti-
mate triumph of right, and tendency to inde-
pendent thinking, have prevailed in every gen-

(I) Samuel Sturtevant. who was settled in
Plymouth, Massachusetts, as early as Novem-
ber, 1640, was no doubt a resident of Roches-
ter, England, before becoming a member of
Plymouth colony. He lived on what is called
the "Cotton Farm," in Plymouth, where he
died in October, 1669, at which time he is said
to have been forty-five years old. The bap-
tismal name of his wife was Ann. Children :
I. Ann, married John Waterman. 2. John,
died young. 3. Alary, married Ephraim Lit-
tle. 4. Samuel, see forward. 5. Hannah. 6.
John. 7. Lydia. 8. James. 9. Joseph.

(II) Samuel (2), fourth child of Samuel
( I ) and Ann Sturtevant, was born April 9,
1645. He lived in that part of Plymouth
which was incorporated in the town of Plymp-
ton, and afterward became part of the town
of Halifax. He held several offices or places
of trust in Plymouth, and was one of the first
selectmen of Plympton, and deacon of its

of Winslow. and when Waterville was cut off
from Winslow it became West Waterville and
finally Oakland. When Lot Sturtevant set-
tled there it was a wilderness, with no roads,
and it was his custom to carry corn on his
back in a bag to Waterville, whence he pro-
ceeded by canoe to Gardiner to have it ground.
His long service as a soldier had inured him
to hardships, and he was cheerful in enduring
the privations of a pioneer region while cut-
ting out for himself and his posterity a farm
and home. He married Elizabeth Bessie,
born October 3, 1764, died January 13, 1833.

The name of Nudd is most un-
XUDD usual in this country, and the only
extended line seems to belong to
Hampton, New Hampshire, where eight gen-
erations of the family have lived. The first
American ancestor was Thomas Nudd, son of
Roger of England, who came to this country
in 1637, and settled at Hampton in 1643-44.
There is nothing to show that the following
line is descended from Thomas Nudd, of
Hampton ; but such is probably the case unless
the members are derived from a more recent
immigrant. This branch appeared in North-
field, New Flampshire, in 1799, and the his-
tory of that town says that they were of
Scotch descent.

(I) Joseph Warren Nudd was born in
1769, and lived in the southerly part of North-
field, New Hampshire, close by the Canter-
bury line. He died in 1822 at the age of fifty-
three years. On December 3, iSti, Joseph
Warren Nudd married Judith Arlin, and they
had six children of whom we have records of
but four: i. Erastus Nudd, probably the
eldest child, owned charcoal kilns on the south-
erly side of Bean Hill in Northfield, and ex-
ported the product to Concord. He married
Catherine Reardon, and died at Lancaster,
New Hampshire, May 29, 1897. 2. Almira
Nudd married Luther Rogers, and lived in
Loudon, New Hampshire. 3. Narcissa Nudd,
born October 2, 1817, was married on October
16. 1S32. to John Dalton, of Sanbornton, New
Hampshire. 4. Levi Chase Nudd, see suc-

ceeding paragraph. After the death of Joseph
W. Nudd his widow married Hiram Kimball
for her second husband, and there were three
more children: i. Laura, married Andrew
Grover, of Canterbury. 2. Charles, who was
killed by a railroad accident on his way home
from the civil war. 3. John Kimball, born in
1833, who lived at New Ham])ton, New

(11) Levi Chase, son of Joseph Warren and
Judith (Arlin) Nudd. was born at Northfield,
New Hampshire, in 1818, and died at L^aconia,
that state, in 1900. At about the age of nine
years he was adopted by Joseph Clisby, of
Holdcrness. with whom he lived till he was
nineteen. He early learned the blacksmith's
trade, and later that of a brick mason. He
became a contractor, building railroads and
various public buililings. He erected the
Pemigewasset House at Plymouth. New
Hampshire, one of the famous White Moun-
tain hotels ; and he was also employed at the
navy yard in Charlestown, Massachusetts.
About 1844 Levi Chase Nudd married Mary
Mooney Baker, daughter of Knowlton K.
and Betsy Baker, of Ashland, formerly a part
of Holdcrness, New Hampshire. Two children
were born to Levi Chase and ^lary M.
(Baker) Nudd: Helen 'M., born in Framing-
ham, Alassachusctts, in 1845, married Joseph
Jameson, of Taemia, New Hampshire. She
is now deceased ; and Charles H., whose
sketch follows. Mrs. :\Iary (Baker) Nudd
died in Ouincy about 1873.

(IH) Charles H., only son of Levi Chase
and Mary ]\Iooney (Baker) Nudd, was born
at Ashland, New Hampshire, March 28, 1854.
His education was acquired in the common
schools of Ashland, Tilton Seminary and
Guilford Academy at Laconia, New Hamp-
shire. His parents moved to Boston, Massa-
chusetts, and Charles H. engaged with E. F.
Messenger & Company, dealers in dry goods
and notions, as entry clerk. After a short
period he represented the firm as traveling
salesman throughout New England, remaining
with them until 1873, but continued for vari-
ous concerns as salesman for thirty odd years.
About 1898 he enj^aged in the insurance busi-
ness. Since 1900 he has been state manager
of the L^nited States Health & Accident Com-
pany. Fraternall)^ he is a member of I^idgley
Lodge, L O. O. F.. of Manchester, New
Hampshire, and Lewiston Lxidge, No. 371,
B. P. O. E., and a member of the Amoskeag
V'eterans of Alanchestcr. New Hampshire.
Mr. Nudd married (first) in 1876. Georgetta
S. Smith, of East Boston ; she died in Man-



Chester, New Hampshire, in 1887, leaving one
chilli, Chandler B. Nudd, now of Lowell. Mas-
sachusetts, who married i\Iae Luke, of St.
Albans, Vermont, and has one child, Helen
M. Xudd. ^Married (second), June 6, i88g,
Nellie A., daughter of William H. and Ann
A. (Wentworth) Dale, of South Paris, Maine,
and granddaughter of Dr. Isaiah F. and Ruth
E. ( Page ) Wentworth.

The Wentworth ancestry begins with Regi-
nald Wentworth I (q. v.), and continues:

(XXH) Benjamin, youngest of the ten
children of Elder William Wentworth, of
Dover, New Hampshire, was born about 1675,
and was probably the son of a second wife,
whose name has not been preserved. There is
a tradition that she was very young at the
time of her marriage, which took place when
the Elder was somewhat advanced in years.
Benjamin Wentworth died in the summer of
1728, according to the following item taken
from the Kcii' England Journal of August 5 :
"We are informed that some days ago, 'Mr.
Benjamin Wentworth, riding over a bridge
(otherwise called the boom) in the river in
Cocheco, N. H., fell into the said river, where
both he and his horse were drowned." Ben-
jamin Wentworth inherited his homestead
from his father, it being part of the Elder's
large tract. There is a deed recorded at
Exeter, May 9, 1693, where the Elder was
then preaching, which states that he "Do giue
and grant unto my son Benja Wentwortli of
Cochecho all that Corn that he hath sown and
planted this year in my home lott and the
black cow that he hath made choyce of and the
Land yt my son Sylvanus Wentworth lieued
uppon.'' This homestead was about two miles
northeast of Cochecho Falls, Dover, and east
of Garrison Hill. It remained in the posses-
sion of the family as late as 1878. Benjamin
Wentworth was constable of Dover in 171 1-
13, and surveyor of highways in 1703-17.
About 1697 Benjamin Wentworth married
Sarah Allen, whom tradition says came from
Salisbury, Massachusetts. She was born in
1679, came to Dover in 1697, probably at the
time of her marriage, and died at the home of
her grandson, Bartholomew, July 12, 1770, at
the age of ninety-one years. Benjamin and
Sarah (Allen) W'entworth had twelve chil-
dren : William, born August 14, i6g8 ; Sarah,
.^pril 16, 1700, married Deacon Daniel Plum-
mer, of Dover; Tamsen, January 4, 1701,
married Aaron Riggs, of Gloucester, Massa-
chusetts; Benjamin, December 5, 1703; Eben-
ezer, whose sketch follows ; Susannah, Decem-
ber g, 1707, married Stephen Hartford, of

Rochester, New Hampshire ; Joseph, Decem-
ber 22, 1709; Elizabeth, June 8, 1712, married
John Yfiatom of Newcastle, New Hampshire;
Dorothy, July 26, 1714, married her cousin,

married Hayes; Abra, February 14,

1718, married William Chadwick, of Somers-
wortii. New Hampshire; Mark, May 30, 1720.

(XXIII) Ebenezer, third son of Benjamin
and Sarah (Allen) Wentworth, was born at
Dover, Xew Hampshire, September 9, 1705,
and died some time after 1773. He was a
cordwainer, and lived at Great Falls, now
Somersworth, Xew Hampshire. He was
twice married, but the nine children were all
by the first wife. About 1728 Ebenezer Went-
worth married Sarah, daughter of John and
Deborah (Church) Roberts, who was born
February 18, 1708-09, and died February 10,
