It is said that the name Carver
CARVER is derived from the occupation
of wood carver, and some of the
work in cathedrals of East Anglia was done
by skilled carvers of this family. The names
Adam le Karver and Richard le Kerver are
found on the Hundred Rolls, and some bear-
ing the name Carver at later date were settled
in various parts of England. John Carver,
first governor of Plymouth Colony, was
"sonne of James Carver, Lincolnshire, yeo-
man," and it has been the commonly accepted
tradition that Robert Carver, the emigrant,
was his brother, which tradition was supposed
to have been established as fact by the historian
of Marshficld, Massachusetts, who received
the information from a Carver descendant,
whose grandfather had lived twenty-one years
with his grandfather Robert, the emigrant.
But it is now known that Robert was a son of
Isaac, a brother of Governor Carver, and con-
sequently the Governor's nephew.

(I) Robert, American ancestor, son of Isaac
Carver, was born in Boston, Lincolnshire,
England, in 1594. He is recorded as "a
planter," of Marshfield, Massachusetts, where
he received a land grant of twenty acres at
Green Harbor, and also a "garden place" at
Stony Brook, Duxbury. The old homestead
in South Marshfield is still held in the Carver
name. He was made freeman January 7, 1648,
and was chosen juryman and town officer. He
was also called "a sawj'cr." The surname of
his wife Christian is not learned, but they were
probably married in England or Holland. His
father, Isaac Carver, died in Leyden. Robert
lived to be eighty-six years of age, and was
buried April, 1680. The historian of Marsh-
ficld states that he survived his wife Christian
twenty-two years.

(II) John, .son of Robert and Christian
Carver, was born about 1637, probably in Dux-
bury, and made his home in that town, where

being a member of the firm of Baker, Carver
& Company. For some time an office was
maintained by this concern at South street; and
another on Broad street, and in 1893 it was

(V) William (3), fourth son
CARVER of William (2) and Abigail

(Branch) Carver, was born in
Marshfield, in 1727, and resided in that town
until after 1759, when he left his native town.
He married, December 10, 1754, in Marsh-



field, Margaret, daughter of Thomas Kemp-
ton, of that town, and there his first three
children were born: i. Thomas, 1755. 2.
William, 1757. 3. Branch, 1759. He was a
seafaring man, and probably resided in ditler-
ent localities. He was cast away at sea near
the mouth of the Kennebec river, in Maine,
and after his death his widow, with her sons,
William, James, Amos and Nathan, and her
daughters, Lucy, Elizabeth and Mary, went
in 1779 to Livermore, Maine, where she was
the second settler and the first to make a clear-
ing. One of the daughters married Cutting
Clark, and another John Winter. Branch Car-
ver was probably a private in Captain Na-
thaniel Goodwin's company, Colonel Theo-
philus Cotton's regiment of the revolutionary
army. He was detached September 25, 1775.
and discharged on the last day of October fol-
lowing. During this time he served on a se-
cret expedition against Newport, Rhode Is-
land. Thomas Carver and another son was a

Colonel Thomas' regiment, which marched
yVpril 20, 1775, in response to the Lexington
alarm.. He was in camp with Brigadier
Thomas' brigade as a member of Captaui An-
drew Sampson's company, and in several oth-
ers. He resided in Pembroke, Maine, enlisted
from that town, and was reported to have died
December 2, 1777. Zadock Carver, another
son, enlisted as a private July 11, 1779, re-
enlisted August 4, 1780, and was finally dis-
charged December 23 following. One of the
grandchildren of William Carver was Leonard
D. Carver, state librarian. There was another
son, Eleazar, whose birth does not seem to
have been recorded. (Mention of Nathan, the
youngest son and descendants, appears below.)

(\ I) Eleazar, son of William and JMargaret
(Kempton) Carver, was born about 1764,
probably at some seaport, where his father
temporarily resided. He was a Baptist cler-
gyman, and settled among the earliest resi-
dents of Leeds, Alaine. His homestead is in
that part of Leeds which was formerly a part
of the town of Livermore, where his mother
and brothers and sisters settled. He died

at Tufts College, taking a special preparatory
course of one year, after which he matricu-
lated at Boston University in the class of

office and engaged in the practice of law with
which he has since been identified. He mar-

The generally accepted theory
PIERCE of the origin of this name is that
it is derived from "pierre,"' a
French word meaning stone. Possibly Percy
Forest was their home, thus giving the name
to the first of the family. Another theory is
that it is of Teutonic origin, from the word
"pirsen," meaning to hunt or a hunting place.
The variations of the name are almost end-
less, as — Pierce, Peirce, Pearce, Peerce,
Pearce, Peirse, Pierse, Pieres, Peires, Pirse,
and Pearse; these being the most common
forms in England and this country. What-
ever the orthography, tlie usual pronunciation
in New England is P'erce or Purse. Not one
of the English noble houses is so distinguished
as the Percies throughout the whole range of
English history. They are remarkably alike
for their long, unbroken line, their high
achievements, their generosity and chivalrous
bearing and their general culture of arts and
letters. The arms of the family are : Three
ravens, rising sable, a fesse-humette, with
crest ; A dove with an olive branch in its
beak. The family motto is : "Dixit et Fecit,"
which, translated, is: "He said and he did."
The representative of the Percy family in Eng-
land is the Duke of Northumberland, and his
banner exhibits an assemblage of nine hundred
armorial designs, among the number being
those of Henry the Seventh, the ancient royal
houses of France and Castile and the ducal
houses of Normandy. There is a line which
tells us "Brave Galfred v^ho to Normandy with
Rollo came, assumed the Percy name." The
name is interwoven with the early minstrelsy
of England and Scotland, and though often
connected with tragic incidents has always
been honorable. Two brothers, William and
Serlo de Percy, came into England with Wil-
liam the Conqueror, who endowed the elder,
his namesake, with vast possessions in Hamp-
shire, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire. The fam-
ily does not descend in a direct line from this
William, for, in the reign of Henry the Sec-
ond, the male line became e.xtinct and the in-
heritance passed to a sister, Agnes de Perci,
from whom all the subsequent Percies are de-
scended. She accepted as her husband, Josce-
line, a son of Geoffrey, duke of Louvain, upon
the express condition that he and his posterity
should bear the name of Percy, assume the
arms of her famil\' and relinquish their own.
This Josceline was a brother of Adelais or

1933



Alice, of Louvain, the second queen of Henry
the First, and hy an arrangement with his sis-
ter confirmed hy Henry the Second, became
possessed of the honor of Petworth, was cas-
tellan of Arundel and held other important
posts in the south of England. His son Rich-
ard was one of the twenty-five barons ap-
pointed to enforce the observance of Magna
Charta. The ancient arms of Brabant are still
borne by the family, being the first of the eight
hundred and ninety-two quarlerings of the
Percy shield. The standard bearer to Richard
the Third on Bosworth Field was a Peter
Peirs, and they are large land owners in Kent,
Devon, Norfolk, Somerset and Suffolk.

John Pierce was probably the first of the
name to come to America, for the first patent
of the Plymouth Colony was granted in 1621
to John, a large ship owner from London.
Another early ancestor of the Pierces of Amer-
ica was Abraham Pierce, who with his wife
Rebecca settled in Plymouth Colony and was
a ta.xpayer in 1623. He was a soldier under
Standish, and on January 20, 1627, exchanged
with Captain Allies Standish two shares in a
red cow for two ewe lambs. It was from Suf-
folk that a Pilgrim Father, Daniel Peirce, came
in the "Elizabeth" in 1634. He lived in W'a-
tertown, Massachusetts, and later in Ports-
mouth, New Flampshire. Colonel Daniel, his
son, was prominent in civil, ecclesiastical and
military affairs of Newbury, Alassachusetts. It
was Richard Pierce, probably a son of Richard
the settler, who published the first nev.-spaper
in the United States, September 25, 1699.

( I ) The original American ancestor of this
family was Thomas Pierce, who was born in
