appointed major at Saco (he settled Black
Point), and at the same time was directed to
assist in keeping court at York. In 1663, when
New Hampshire was a royal provmce, it was
governed bv a president and eight councillors
appointed bv King Charles II, and Brian Pen-
dleton was one of the councillors. In 1672 he
was relieved of military duty and his regi-
ment was placed under command of Major
John Leavctt. He was commissioner of York
county in 1675-76. On June 12, 1676, he pur-
chased seven hundred acres of land in West-
erly, Rhode Island, from John Paine, of Bos-
ton, and gave to his son James a life interest
in the estate.

Brian Pendleton was possessed of a large
estate, probably larger than that of any other
man in Portsmouth. A description of him,
probably written by Edward Randolph, was as
follows: "Major Brian Pendleton, a man of
Saco river, of great estate, but very precise,
independent, beloved by all his fraternity, being
an enemy to both the king's interest and to Mr.
George's interest, also a great ring leader of
others to the interest of his power." He was
recruited in the Ancient and Honorable Ar-
tillery in 1646. Abstract of the public service

necessary to purchase an interest in the ves-
sels which he sailed. From 1880 until the time
of his retirement in 1901 he engaged in trade
with various foreign countries, including China

Though the Perrv familv were
PERRY settled in the southern Jialf of
England, chiefly in Somerset,
Cornwall, Gloucester and Esse.x counties, it is
thought by some that they were of Welsh
origin. The Hon. Amos Perry, of the Rhode
Island Historical Society, and for many years
its librarian, was strongly inclined to th'ii
opinion. Among the Welsh names appears
Ap Flarry (or son of Harry), which later
became Parry and was soon corrupted to
Perry. On early record in England and
America it was written : Pury, Pary, Perrie
and Parrie, but Perry has since been uni-
versally adopted.

(l) John Perry, the .American ancestor of
this family, was born in England and came
to this country 1631, it is said, with Rev.

John Eliot, who (in a letter called him
"cousin"), and settled in Roxbury, ]Massachu-
setts, where he was made freeman, March 4,
1633. Was a member of Eliot's church and
died in Roxbury, September 21, 1642, where
he was buried. He left a widow Ann and
three children : Elizabeth, born January 25,
1637-38; John, September 7, 1639; Samuel,
March i, 1640-41.

(II) John (2), eldest son of John (i) and
Ann Perry, was born in Roxbury, Septem-
ber 7, 1639. He married, March 23, 1665,
Bethia, daughter of Daniel Morse, of Sher-
born, Massachusetts. John (2) removed to
Medfield before 1665 and thence to Sherborn,
1674, where he died May 4, 1713. His wife
born March 24, 1648, died also at Sherborn,
June 3, 1717. They had seven children : John,
born 1667, married, 1691, Sarah Hill; Samuel,

_i674, married Joanna Lovct, and Joseph, his
twin brother, married Martha, sister of Joanna
Lovet; Nathaniel, died 1756, married Abigail
Mason; Bethia; Mary; and Eleazar, married
Mary Holbrook.

(III) Nathaniel, third son of John (2) and
Bcthiah (Morse) Perry, was born at Sherborn
and died September 7, 1756. He married .Abi-
gail Mason, who died March 15, 1728. They
had three children (and perhaps others) :
Abigail, born 1715, married Joseph Whitney;
Nathaniel, 171 7, and Moses, July 28, 1719.

I HI) Eleazar, fourth son of John (2) and
Bethiah (Morse) Perry, was born at Sher-
born, June I, 1680, and married, June 19,
1705, Mary Holbrook. They had a son,
Eleazar (2), born June 2, 1706, but no others
recorded. There seems to be no definite rec-
ord of the parentage of Ephraim. but of the
Slierborn Perrys Nathaniel and Eleazar are
the only ones likely to have been his father, and
possibly the fact of Eleazar's marriage with a
Holbrook — the same being the name of Eph-
raim's wife — is an indication that Eleazar was
father of Ephraim.

(IV) Ephraim, son of Eleazar and Mary
(Holbrook) Perry, was born in Sherborn
about 1720. -According to the records, he
married (first) in 1742, Hannah Holbrook,
born September 11, 1720, died June 2j, 1744.
He married (second) Mary Babcock. They
had four sons: Ebenezer, born March 2y,
1746; Jesse, October 22, 1747; John, October
30, 1749; Jonathan, December 7, 1751.

(V) John, third son of Ephraim and Mary
(Babcock) Perry, was born in Sherborn, Oc-
tober 30, 1749. About 1764 he moved to Fox
Island, Maine (now \'inalhaven). The names
of John and William Perry are signed (with



others) to the petition dated 1785, appealing
to the commonwealth of ^Massachusetts for
protection of their property at Fox Island
which they had occupied and cultivated "for
about twenty years." John settled first on
what is now Crabtrees Point and also took
up a lot between Perry's Creek and Seal Cove
on South Island. About 1779 he was living
on South Island and cultivating a small patch
of land, and was one of the sufiferers from
foragers during the occupancy of Castine by
the British. One day "a party of fifteen," it
is said, visited his cornfield and began to
help themselves, when he secured his gun and
shot down two of them and then fled to the
grounds, hiding in the hollow of a tree for
forty-eight hours, till the danger was passed.
This old English flint-lock gun is still pre-
served by descendants. At another time he
was picking up birds near the river and some
British ordered him to come ashore, which
he agreed when he "had gathered all the
birds." Watching his opportunity while they
waited, he paddled off in the opposite direc-
tion, escaping the shower of bullets that fol-
lowed him. Several times after, though the
British strove in vain to capture him, he man-
aged his escape. During the war of the revo-
lution he was commissioned captain of the
boat "Fl}-" by the governor of Massachusetts,
to operate against the enemy in Fox Island
and vicinity. In the war of 1812, Captain
Perry moved to Rockland, Maine. He died in
1842, aged ninety-three years, and was buried
on his farm at Northport, though in his old
age he had lived in Vinalhaven. Pie was twice
married. The first wife was Miss Woster,
and the second "widow Perry." The David
Woster who came from England about
1744 (and was born 1732) settled at
Vinalhaven in 1762. He \vas doubtless
the father of John Perry's first wife. Their
children numbered thirteen, among whom
those of Thomaston were: Captain Eph-
raim, born 1788; Captain Robert, mar-
ried, August II, 1821, Dolly Spear and (sec-
ond) Mellicent Eaton, September 2, 1827. He
died of fever. New York City, January 31,
1851 : Lucy, married Captain Benjamin Thom-
as. She died February 23, 1851.

(VI) Captain Ephraim, eldest son of John

and (Woster) Perry, was born at

Vinalhaven in 1788. He married, November
10, 1814, Nancy, daughter of John and Re-
becca (Blackington) Crockett, and sister of
Hon. Knott Crockett. She was born Decem-
ber 10, 1789. and died December 22, 1861.

owner and spent his life at sea. Children of

(\'II) John Jarvis, third son of Captain
Ephraim and Nancy (Crockett) Perry, was
born in Rockland, Maine, January 25, 1826,
and was educated at the schools in Rockland.
He first started business with his uncle, Hon.
Knott Crockett, who was the first mayor of
Rockland, and at his death he succeeded him in
the shipping business and general merchan-
dise, also in the manufacture of lime. He
built the second (known as the patent) lime
kiln erected in the state of Maine. He mar-
ried, August 4, 1852, Mary Frances, daughter
of Orin and Marj' Wealthy Cowl. Their chil-
dren were : Jarvis C, treasurer of the Se-
curity Trust Company, Rockland, Maine ; Orin
Francis and Benjamin Cowl.

(VIII) Orin Francis, second son of John
Jarvis and Mary F. (Cowl) Perry, was born
at Rockland, Maine, October 10, 1858. At
nineteen years of age he went to sea and con-
tinued five years, becoming a master mariner.
In 1880 he began the manufacture of lime at
Rockland, with his brothers, and has been en-
gaged in that business until the present time.
In 1901 he sold out to the Rockland Rock
Port Lime Company and was retained by them
as the New York manager and later was ap-
pointed general manager of the entire business.
He is a member of the Building Material Ex-
change and its former president : member of
the Building- Trades Employers' Association ;

He is a Congregationalist in religion, and a
staunch Republican in politics. He served in

land with credit to himself and satisfaction to
his constituents. He married, April 7, 1887,

Rockland. Children : Anna Louise, Grace
Adelaide, Nettie Frances. Orin F. and Gladvs.
