1840. He was educated in the public schools
and high school of Dayton. He became a
clerk in his father's grocery store at the age
of thirteen. A few vears later he established
a commission business on his own account.
He came to Worcester, Massachusetts, in

1856, and was associated with his brother-in-
law in the management of the old Worcester
Mutual Insurance Company. He finallv had
charge of a large share of the business of the
company. He also engaged in the manufac-
ture of writing ink in Worcester and the
Holden ink became well and favorably known
to the trade and public. He disposed of this
business which is still continued by the San-
ford ink concern. In 1864 he bought an in-
terest in a wholesale paper and blank book
business. This company manufactured blank
books and stationery and the first noiseless



school slate. His partner was Augustus F.
Payne. In 1878 Mr. Holden started in busi-
ness of manufacturing stationers' supplies at
Dayton, Ohio, under the name of the Holden
Manufacturing Company. In 1886 he moved
his plant to Springfield, Massachusetts, and
continued in business there to the present time.
In 1869 he invented the first automatic book
cover and patented the device the following
year. He has from time to time taken out
other patents on book covers and has for
many years been the largest manufacturer of
this kind of goods in the world. He has al-
ways taken a keen interest in public educa-
tion and has spared no effort within his means
and power to improve the public school sys-
tem. To the smallest school district of the
country he has given as favorable a price on
his stationery as to the largest city. He is
a member of the Economic Club of Spring-
field and of the American Civic Association
and is interested in the work of those organi-
zations. In politics he is Independent. He
is a member of the Presbyterian Church.

Francis Nourse, immigrant an-
X( )URSE cestor, was born in England,
January 18. 1618, and died at
Salem Village, now Danvers. Massachusetts,
November 22, 1695. On account of the
witchcraft delusion in Salem he and his wife
became historical characters. The name of
Rebecca Nourse is perhaps the best known of
all the unfortunate victims of the Puritan
fanatics. Francis Nourse was a settler before
1639 and a proprietor of the town of Salem in
1647. He lived for forty years near Sperry's,
on River street, between the main village of
Salem and the ferry to Beverly. He was a
wood-worker, called a tray maker, a skilled
workman, and a respectable man of more than
ordinary ability and strength of character. He
was called frequently as umpire and arbitrator

in cases of dispute over land boundaries,
served on local committees to lay out grants
and highways, and on juries. He bought the
Bishop farm at Salem Village, April 29, 1778,
and settled there. It contained some three
hundred acres and his children all built their
homes ami lived on it. The family was pros-
perous, and it is believed that their very pros-
perity was the cause of the malicious charge
against the wife and mother, Rebecca Nourse.
The story is well-known. She was arrested
and protested her innocence of the charge of
witchcraft. With steadfast dignity and un-
wavering patience she bore the ordeal of her
trial, where crazy fanatics even threw their
muffs and shoes at her, and had fits and exhi-
bitions of that sort in court. Thirty-nine of
her friends, among the highest and most re-
spectable in the town, signed a statement tes-
tifying to her blameless character and faithful-
ness to the church. These names have been
inscribed on a tablet on the memorial recently
erected over her grave at Danvers. The jury
found her not guilty, but the court reversed
the verdict and condemned her to death. She
was hanged on Witch Hill, July 19, 1692, and
buried in the little cemetery at Danvers. Fran-
cis Nourse married her August 24. 1644. Her
maiden name was Rebecca Towne, daughter
of William and Jane Towne, of Yarmouth,
England, where she was born February 16,
1621. She and her husband were members of
the First church at Salem, and he was a dea-

(The Child Line).

This surname, spelled also Childs, Childe
and Chyld, is one of the oldest English family
names. The progenitor was probably a Saxon
chief who assummed the surname toward the
end of the Saxon domination in England.
After the Norman Conquest some of the fam-
ilies took the Latinized French form of L'En-
fant for some generations, and several of that
name were concerned in the conquest of Ire-
land in the reign of Henry II and in the gov-
ernment of the country in the twelfth century ;
others had seats at various places in Worces-
tershire and at Shrewsbury, England. Rich-
ard Le Childe was Lord of the Manor of
North wick in 1320, and was succeeded by his
sons William and Thomas, and grandson
Thomas Le Child, who was escheater for the
county in 1428. The Child coat-of-arms

tween three doves argent. Crest: A dove,
wings expanded argent, with a snake twining
about her neck and body, or.

17, 1864. He was educated in the schools of
his native town, at Northampton, and Turners
Falls Academy. At the age of sixteen years
he entered the employ of the Haydenville
Brass Works as clerk, and learned the trade
of brass worker, which line of work he fol-
lowed until his marriage, when he became

of the bank, in which capacity he has served
ever since. He is also interested in fire insur-

(The Bardwel) Line).

The surnames Bardwell, Bordwell and
Boardwell undoubtedly sprang from the same
source. If the original name was, as, has been



asserted, derived from two words — bard and
well, — we may safely infer that the first to bear
it was a poet who sang his own lays and sang
them well. The Bardwell coat-of-arms shows
that the family in England were of the gentry
and bore an honorable record : Three scallops
1 >hell fish), guarded by a lion rampant, with
motto in English : "We fear no danger." It
is said that the first of the name in New Eng-
land spelled the name Bordwell, and that it
was generally pronounced Bardie. One of the
immigrant sons, who was a college graduate,
saw fit to adopt the original orthography, in
order to make the spelling agree more closely
with the accepted manner of pronounciation.
Members of the family participated in the
earlv Indian wars, and also in the revolution-
ary war.

( I ) Robert Bardwell, immigrant ancestor of
this family, was born in London in 1647. He
was living there in 1665 when the first plague
claimed for its victims more than one hundred
thousand people, and also at the time of the
conflagration which is said to have destroyed
thirteen thousand two hundred houses and
shops and ninety churches. He was appren-
ticed to a hatter in London in 1667, and be-
side learning the usual trade he acquired a
new branch of the business — the making of
wool hats. He came to America in 1670, when
twenty-three years of age. In the fall of 1675
he was the bearer of dispatches from Boston
to the military forces in Hadley, and his or-
ders were that "if the snow fell before he was
ready to return, to remain through the win-
ter." He received the appointment of ser-
geant, and was in command of one or more
forts in the western part of the state. He took
part in the Narragansett fight, December 19,
1676, and the following day received payment
for his services that year. He settled in
Hartford in 1675, and died there in 1726. On
November 29, 1676, he married Alary, daugh-
ter of William and Elizabeth (Smith) Gull,
widow of Nathaniel Foote. Children of Rob-
