(The Folsom Line).

The surname Folsom was originally spelled
Foulsham. When surnames were adopted in
England the family living at Foulsham adopted
the name of the place, a village in county Nor-
folk, England, six or eight miles north of
Hingham. This family had been seated in
Norfolk many centuries and owned estates in
fifteen different places. The spelling and pro-
nunciation of this surname have varied in the
family itself as well as among others writing
and pronouncing it. The immigrant ancestor
spelt it Foullsam in 1715. In Hingham, Foul-
sham is the general way adopted by the town
clerks; in Exeter, after 1659, Folsom was the
prevailing spelling. The name of the town is
derived from the words Fols and Hamc, mean-
ing Fowl's home, or breeding place. The name
of the town was gradually modified to Fol-
sham.

( I ) Roger Foulsham, of Necton, county
Norfolk, England, is the earliest ancestor of
the American immigrant who can be traced.
His will is dated 1534.

(II) William p'oulsham was of Necton;
married Agnes Smith, alias Foulsham, of Bes-
thorpe.

(III) Adam Foulsham married Emma



, whose will is dated 1565. He owned

lands in Besthorpe, W'ymondham, Bunwell.
Hingham and Hackford, England. He died
in 1630.

(IV) Adam (2) Folsom was father of the

American immigrant ; married Agnes ;

died 1627. His will names three sons: 1.
John, mentioned below. 2. Adam. 3. Peter.

(V) John, son of Adam (2) Folsom, was
the immigrant ancestor. He was baptized in
England in 1615. He married there at Hing-
ham, October 4' 1636, Mary Gilman, daughter
of Edward Gilman. In 1638, with wife and two
servants, he came from Hingham, England, to
Hingham, Massachusetts, and in 1639 his
brother. Adam Folsom, came over. The Gil-
mans also came to Hingham. John Folsom
sailed April 26. 1638, in the ship "Diligent"
from the mouth of the Thames, and landed at
Boston, August 10. 1638. He received a grant
(if land and before winter had his house built.
This house or one built later by him was taken
down in 1875. He was chosen selectman in
1645. He and Captain Joshua Hubbard were
granted liberty of the two rivers. Rocky
Meadow and Bound Brook, so far as the town
hath property, to build and maintain a saw
mill or mills. John Folsom sold his lands in
Hingham about 1655 and removed with his
family to Exeter. New Hampshire. He lived
on the west side of the river, where the first
settlements were made ; but three of his sons
lived in the eastern part of the town. His
-011s and grandsons owned much land upon
what was called Rocky Hill. He was engaged
as surveyor in running the lines between Ex-
eter and Dover. In advanced life he became
unfortunately involved in his pecuniary affairs,
but was assisted by his sons in preserving his
property. He was very intelligent, earnest,
enterprising; sometimes more enthusiastic than
judicious; a decided Christian ready to sacri-
fice his property, ease and popular favor for
the sake of his principles. He died December
2j, 1651, at Exeter. He deeded to his son
Peter, April 10. 1073, "forty or fifty acres of
land in Hingham in ye county of Norfolk
( England ) near Norrald Comon and formerly
held by ye name of Ffulsham at ye Box-
bushes." We are not told whether the land
has ever been sold. John Folsom was select-
