The surname Phelps is a varia-
PHELPS tion of the spelling of the name

Phillip.-, meaning son of Philip,
in the case of the original ancestor using it.
The spelling of the surname has been varied
and a number of well established family names
are traced to the same origin. One branch of
the Phelps family, how-ever. claims to be of
the Guelph family of Germany to which Queen
Victoria belonged, but no proof of record has
been found to establish the claim. Some



branches of the American family of Phelps
are descended from the ancient family of
Tewksbury, Gloucestershire, England. Among
them is the family mentioned below. The
ancient coat-of-arms is described as follows:
Sable lion chained and rampant. Various
branches of the English family have their
coats-of-arms.

(XI) -Walter Lyman, son of Charles Phelps,
was born at South Deerfield, December 22,
1858. He was educated in the public schools
of his native town. He was brought up on a
farm and followed farming until 1888, when
he became shipping clerk for the Smith Carr
Baking Company of Northampton. He was
with this concern for eleven years, and pur-
chased the business which he in 1908 combined
with the Greenfield Company, which he had
established at Greenfield in 1900, and has built
up a thriving and successful business. He is
an active member of the Second Congrega-
tional Church of Greenfield, has been deacon
since 1902, was superintendent of the Sunday
school for three years and chairman of the
building committee when the church was
repaired. In politics he is a Republican. He

Descendants of William Sawyer,
SAWYER the immigrant ancestor, went

from Newbury, Massachusetts,
to Maine, in every generation. His son, Will-
iam Sawyer, settled in Wells, Maine, and left
a numerous posterity. Descendants of other
sons settled at Falmouth, now Portland, Maine.
Edward Sawyer married, January, 1734, at
Falmouth, Abigail Plummer ; Job Sawyer mar-
ried there, May 28, 1737, Mehitable Blake;
Daniel Sawyer married there, December 15,
1739, Sarah Woodbury; Abraham Sawyer
married, November 7, 1742, Elizabeth Graff am.
The records of marriage of Jeremiah, Samuel,
Solomon, Job, Zachariah, Abraham, Anthony,
Ebenezer and others follow in the Falmouth
records. Isaac and Sarah Sawyer were mar-
ried before 1733 and had a family in Falmouth ;
Jeremiah, Jacob, Joseph and John Jr. had
families born in Falmouth, and we have reason
to believe that Isaac, of Falmouth, was an
ancestor of Isaac Sawyer mentioned below.
The deficient record of Falmouth and other
Maine towns in which the family located make



it impossible at the present time to complete
the record of the family to the immigrant
ancestor, William Sawyer. According to the
federal census of 1790 seven heads of families
of this surname were then living in Falmouth :
Merrill, Isaac, Obadiah, Benjamin, Anthony,
Thomas, Zachariah.

( I ) Isaac Sawyer, probably the sixth in
descent from William Sawyer, a sketch of
whom appears in this work, was born about
1802 in what is now Auburn, Maine. He was
educated in the common schools, and learned
the trade of blacksmith. Early in life he estab-
lished his shop at Hallowell, where he made
chains, bolts and other iron used in ship-build-
ing and equipment. He was industrious and
skillful and had a large business for his day,
employing a number of journeymen. He was
a man of fine intellect and physique and much
inventive genius. Had he patented his devices
he might have been wealthy. One of the most
valuable was a method of introducing hot air
from the forge to create a draft necessary for
heating heavy iron. He was highly respected
by his townsmen and had more than local fame
as the "honest blacksmith" of Hallowell. He
died at Augusta, Maine., in 1868. He mar-
ried, at Hallowell, Diana R. Gaubert, born at
Bowdoinham, Maine, about 1804, died at an
advanced age, daughter of Nicholas Gaubert,
who was a nobleman by birth, a native of
Marseilles, France, who came to this country
when nineteen years old to complete his edu-
cation in New C>rleans.. where he later married
a girl of French parentage and settled in Rich-
mond, Maine, where both died. Children: 1.
Margaret, born in Hallowell, Maine, married
David Goodwin, of Dresden, Maine. 2. Kath-
erine, married Henry Winslow, a contractor
and builder of Augusta, Maine. 3. Mary Jane,
married Joseph Patterson, a prominent mer-
chant of that city, once mayor. 4. Robert,
died in Nantucket, Massachusetts ; a tailor by
trade, at one time postmaster of Lancaster,
New Hampshire ; married Nancy Moore, of
Hallowell; both now deceased. 5. Isaac Jr., a
blacksmith by trade : drowned on a trip to
California when in middle life. 6. William, a
blacksmith by trade ; died in Somerville, Mass-
achusetts, where he was employed many years ;
married Hannah Lord. 7. George A., men-
tioned below. 8. Twin, born June 16, 1826,

well, Maine, where both died. 11. Diana R.,
married Captain Jonas Smith, a prominent
master mariner of Maine.

(II) George A., son of Isaac Sawyer, was
born in Hallowell, Maine, June 16, 1826. He
attended the district schools of his native town.
He was ambitious to make his mark, and at the
age nf eighteen left home and began a mercantile
career as clerk in the well known establishment
of Haskell & Howland, dealers in dry goods.
According to the custom of that day he was
apprenticed for a term of years, and his wages
were fifty dollars the first year, one hundred
the second year and one hundred and fifty the
third year. By 1847 ne was receiving three
hundred dollars a year a; clerk in the store of
George Hill & Company, corner of West and
Washington streets, where he continued for
the next ten years. The firm removed to
Summer street and took the name of Chandler
& Company, under which it is still doing busi-
ness and enjoying an extensive trade. It was
the first dry goods house to locate on Summer
street. By rigid economy Mr. Sawyer saved a
modest sum of money with which he estab-
lished himself in business in 1857, a men's
furnishing store at the corner of Washington
and Franklin streets as partner in the firm of
Merriam, Sawyer & Company. A few years
later he took the advice of friends ami unwisely
decided to sell his business and settle in Cali-
fornia. His affairs did not prosper in Cali-
fornia and he soon returned to Boston and
with the remainder of his capital made a new
start in the men's furnishing business in a store
on Washington street between West street and
Temple place. His trade grew rapidly and he
soon found it wise to move to larger quarters,
at the south corner of Tremont and Winter
streets. 129 Tremont street, the present loca-
tion. He built up one of the largest and most
substantial concerns in this line of business.
Since 1907 the store has been conducted by
his son, and Mr. Sawyer has been spending
his days in a quiet and comfortable way at his
beautiful home, 306 Marlborough street, Bos-
ton. Mr. Sawyer is well known to the trade as
a man of the highest principles and integrity,
enterprising, sagacious and upright in business.
In religion he is liberal and in politics a Repub-
lican. He married, in Boston, July, 1855,
Hannah E. Russell, born in Bath, Maine, May
20, 1825, died at her home on Marlborough
street in December, 1907, daughter of Jesse
Russell, of Hath. Maine, later a provision
dealer in Ouincy market, Boston. Her mother
was Mary (Robinson) Russell. Her father



married (second) Dudley, who died in

Boston when about eighty years of age. Chil-
dren : 1. Mamie, born in Boston, died unmar-
ried at the age of thirty-five, an accomplished,
capable young woman. 2. Frederick R., July
17, 1857, mentioned below. 3. George A. Jr.,
1869, died in 1895; married Isabella F. Finch,
born in Cornell, New York, who since her
husband's death has resided with his father
and has been to him a most devoted and greatly
beloved daughter, especially since the death of
his wife and his retirement from business.

(Ill) Frederick R., son of George A.
Sawyer, was born in Boston, July 17, 1857.
He received his education in the public and
high schools of Boston, and was then asso-
ciated with his father in business. He was
admitted to partnership in 1888 and after his
father retired he became the sole owner of the
business, though the old name of the firm is
retained. He resides at Center street, Rox-
burv. He is a Republican in politics. In relig-

Club and Boston Athletic Club. He married,
