master of the Eastern road, and held that po-
sition twenty years. In 1897 he built a cot-
tage on Great Diamond Island and began to
study the development of island property. Two
years later he bored a well two hundred and
three feet deep on Peak's Island to get water

Thomas Savage, immigrant an-
SA\".\GE cestor, born in 1603, was the

son of W'illiam Savage, a black-
smith, of Taunton, Somersetshire, England.
The family lived in that county as early as
the reign of Queen Elizabeth. He came from
the parish of St. Albans in the ship "Planter,"
sailing April 2, 1635, and landing in Boston.
He was admitted to the church there Jan
uary 3, 1635-36, and a freeman May 25, 1636.
He was a tailor by trade, but became a promi-
nent and wealthy merchant. He was appren-
ticed to the Merchant Tailors, London. Jan-
uary 9, 1621, aged eighteen, and learned his
trade there. He was captain of a military
company in Boston in 1651. He married
(first) in 1637, Faith, baptized August 14,
1617, daughter of William and the famous

and John Wheelwright and was disarmed by

1637. He was driven to unite with Governor
Coddington and others in the purchase of

ever, to the wilds of Rhode Island, and sold
his land there .\ugust 12, 1639, returning soon
afterward. He was a deputy to the general
court in 1654 from Boston, later from Hing-
ham and Andover ; was speaker of the House

extent along both sides of the river. He
bought the interest of Mrs. Hill in lands at
Winter Harbor, paying her annuity therefor
of fifty shillings a year, by deed of April 16,
1663. From that time to the present the
Savage family has been prominent in Maine.

(H) ■ Captain Ephraim, son of Captain
Thomas Savage, was born in Boston, July 2,
1645. He was admitted a freeman in 1672;
belonged to the Artillery Company in 1674
and was captain in 1683 ; town clerk ; deputy to
the general court in 1703 and six years after-
ward. He was in King Philip's war, the
Phipps Expedition against Canada in 1690,
and captain of a company that invaded Nova
Scotia in the war of 1707. He was a promi-
nent merchant of Boston. His will was made
December 3, 1730, and proved March 22, 1731.
He bequeathed to each of his wife Elizabeth's
three children a gold ring and to his three
daughters, Sarah Wells, Mar>- Trescott and
Hannah Parmenter. Through his ownership
and sale of lands on the Kennebec and at
Arrowsic we are able to identify the Savage
family of Georgetown. John Butler, who
married Ephraim Savage's daughter, settled
at .Arrowsic, now Georgetown, ^Maine. Eph-



raim Savage and wife Elizabeth sold a thou-
sand acres of land at Whigby on the Kenne-
bec, alias Woisqueage, January 6, 1714-15, to
John and Hannah Butler "for parental affec-
tion." Butler deeded back some of the land
on Hanover Island, Georgetown, February 20.
1720-21. This land was bounded by land of
John Minot and others. Ephraim deeded
back this land to his daughter Hannah, widow
of John Butler, April 9, 1730. Richard Whar-
ton, of Boston, owned much land in what is
now Georgetown. By permission of the court,
Ephraim Savage, administrator of his estate^
sold this land to a syndicate of Boston men,
of whom Stephen Minot was one. Minot was
extensively interested in land along the Ken-
nebec and about Georgetown. The land in
which we are specially interested was on the
island of Arrowsic, now in Georgetown, and
was called Pleasant Cove, when James Minot,
of Boston, who inherited it from Stephen
Minot, sold it to Arthur Noble, November 3,
^7 11- This was part of the land that Eph-
raim Savage deeded to the Pejepscot Com-
pany, as Stephen Minot and others in this
land speculation, called it. It was in the
second division of this land and consisted of
eight hundred acres on Winnegance creek on
the Kennebec along Fiddlers beach adjoining
land of Adam Winthrop. The deed states
that the farm was "in the present tenure and
occupation of James Savage and Thomas
Williams." So we know that at the time
Ephraim Savage sold the land or very soon
after James Savage occupied it. That he was
a nephew, son of one of Ephraim's numerous
brothers, seems certain. Again James Savage
is mentioned, January 5, 1729, in a deed of
John Butler, son-in-law of Ephraim Savage,
as occupying a farm on land deeded Butler
by Ephraim Savage. If not the same farm it
was part of the original property owned by
Ephraim Savage or Richard Wharton at Ar-
rowsic.

Ephraim Savage married (first) Mary
Quincy, daughter of Edmund Ouincy Jr., of
Braintree; (second) Sarah, February 26, 1678,
daughter of Rev. Samuel Hough. She died in
1687 and he married (third) April 12, 1688,
Elizabeth Symmes, widow of Timothy Sym-
mes, daughter of Captain Francis Norton, of
Charlestown. She died April 13, 1710, and
he married (fourth) January 8, 1713, Eliza-
beth (Brown) Butler, daughter of Abraham
Brown and widow of Peter Butler. Chil-

(HI) James, nephew of Ephraim Savage
and son probably of his younger brother, John
Savage, was born before 1700, probably in
Maine. As stated above, he was a tenant of
land owned bv Ephraim Savage, later by John
Butler and Stephen Minot on Arrowsic.
Georgetown. Maine, before 1729. He went
there, the local history tells us, to carry on
the farm for Stephen Minot. In 1745 he
/bought a farm of three hundred acres at
Kequasset of Edward Hutchinson. The title
of the land was in dispute and Thomas John-
son, from whom Hutchinson had his title,
obligated himself to pay costs and expenses in
case the purchaser was harassed by lawsuits.
