lye, all of which, though orthographically dif-
ferent, have the same signification and denote
a pasture. Leland, therefore, denoting pasture
land, suggests that in early times this family
may have been generally shepherds and tillers
of the soil. Distinguished men in England and
America have borne the name Leyland. The
Leland attaining the greatest distinction was
John, chaplain to King Henry VIII, the only
person ever holding the office of "King's
Antiquary," one of the most accomplished
scholars and voluminous writers of his own
or any other age. The Lelands of America
have numbered among them many men promi-
nent in their lines of labor. The Leland coat-
of-arms is : Gules a saltier argent — charged
with three Pallets azure, on chief or crest,
with a crow, rising transfixed with an arrow.
Cui deveo, fidus.

( I ) Henry Leland, the progenitor of almost
all without exception who bear the name in
this country, according to the most accurate
information available, was born in England
about the year 1625. It is supposed that he
came to America in 1652, as the church records
of Dorchester show that he united with the
church in that town in 1653. After a short
residence in Dorchester he settled on land in
what was afterward the town of Sherburne,
where he resided until his death April 4, 1680.
Henry Leland made his will March 27, 1680
(O. S.) and it was probated June 8 following.
He wrote his name Layland. There is good

reason for believing that Henry Leland was a
man in character like his comrades in those
days, distinguished for firmness, courage,
patient endurance, and invincible moral and
religious integrity. He married Margaret
Badcock, by whom he had five children, all
born in America: Hopestill (died young),
Experience, Hopestill, Ebenezer and Eleazer.

(II) Ebenezer. son of Henry and Margaret
( Badcock) Leland, was born in Old Medfield,
January 25, 1657, died in Sherburne, Massa-
chusetts, 1742. He was a farmer like most
men in the colony those days. Timothy Leland
administered on the estate of Ebenezer
Leland, which amounted to £198 10s. 6d.
Administration granted October 18, 1742.
Ebenezer married ( first ) Deborah, whose
surname does not appear; (second) Mary
Hunt. His children were: Deborah, Ebene-
zer, Timothy, James, Susannah, Patience,
Martha, Isaac. Sibella and Amariah.

(III) Captain James, son of Ebenezer and
Deborah Leland, was born in Sherburne in
1687, died in Grafton, 1768. He was a farmer
and was a military man, serving as captain.
The commissioners' return of his father's
estate January 12, 1753, recites: Captain
James Leland received in the year 1708,
£17-10-0. James spent his early life in Sher-
burne, but after marriage he took his wife and
young family and in 1723 removed to
the county of Worcester, and settled
on a township of land called Hassan-
amisco, which afterward took the corporate
name of Grafton. James Leland married
Hannah Learned, by whom he had : Jerusha,
Thankful, (died young), Benjamin, Moses,
James, Hannah, Thankful, Thomas, Deliver-
ance, Phineas and Prudence.

'(IV) Phineas, son of James and Hannah
(Learned) Leland, was born in Grafton in
1730, died there in 1773. Like all his brothers
and sisters who attained majority he settled
near his father in Grafton and had a part of
his father's estate for a farm. This was situ-
ated on the Blackstone river. Phineas Leland
married (first) Lydia Fletcher, and (second)
Sarah Warren. His children, all born in the
homestead estate, were : Lydia, Phineas,
Eleazer, Joseph, David W., Thomas, Sarah,
Caleb, Joshua, Lydia and Deliverance.

(V) Caleb, son of Phineas Leland, was
born in 1765, died in Baltimore, Vermont, in
1843. He was a farmer and resided in Graf-
ton until about the year 1800, when he re-
moved to Chester, Vermont, and soon after to
the adjoining town of Baltimore, where he



continued to live until his death. He married
Lakin Willard ; children : Nancy, Otis, Joshua,
.Maria, Caleb, Lakin, Joseph W., Hannah R.,
Charles and James A.

(VI) Otis, son of Caleb and Lakin (Will-
ard) Leland, was born in Grafton, Massa-
chusetts, in 1791, died in Weathersfield, Ver-
mont, 187 1. He owned a farm and resided
for a time in Athens, Vermont. He was well
educated and well versed in Latin and mathe-
matics and taught school for several years.
He married, January 4, 1820, Nancy Spald-
ing, born November 30, 1800, daughter of
Jesse and Winifred (Swift) Spalding (See
Spalding VII). Their children were Octavius
A., Ellen R., Josephine M., Granville, Joseph
W., Levi P., Mary, Julia L., Henry S. and
John.

(VII) Julia Louise, daughter of Otis and
Nancy (Spalding) Leland, was born in
Lowell, September 14, 1840, married, March
8, 1865, Lyman Eliot Bowles (see Bowles
VII).

(The Spalding Line).

The family of Spalding claim and rightfully
too it seems to be descended from one of the
earliest families that settled in Virginia, 1619,
though there had been a colony of men at
Jamestown for a dozen years before that. The
name seems to be derived from Spalding, a
market town in Lincolnshire, England. The
Spaldings have been distinguished in civil and
military life for many generations, both in
Europe and America. In law, medicine,
theology, and in commerce and manufactures,
as well as in the minor employments, Spald-
ings have held prominent places. It has been
computed that eighteen of this name partici-
pated in the battle of Bunker Hill, where one
had a horse shot under him.

(I) Edward Spalding and Edmund Spald-
ing are supposed to have emigrated from
England together with Sir George Yeardley
in 1619, and settled at Jamestown, Virginia.
In the "Virginia Colonial Record" is given
"Lists of the Living and the Dead in Vir-
ginia, Feb. 16, 1623." In this list, under the
head "Att James Citie and within the Corpora-
tion thereof," is to be found in "List of the
Living," Edward Spalding, Uxox Spalding,
Puer Spalding, Puella Spalding, indicating
that Edward Spalding with his wife and son
and a daughter lived at Jamestown at the time
of the making of the list. Edward Spalding
is supposed to have been one of those respect-
able settlers who for one hundred and twenty
pounds of tobacco secured wives from among

the "ninety agreeable persons, young and in- ■
corrupt," who went to Virginia in 1619.
Having seen the massacre of the English by
the Indians in March, 1622, and not being
satisfied with the conditions in Virginia, Ed-
ward Spalding probably left the colony and
went to Massachusetts. He is found of record
at Braintree, Massachusetts, where he was
made a freeman May 13, 1640. On October
1, 1645, he and nineteen others petitioned for
a grant of ten thousand acres of land and the
general court complied with their request. In
1652 he was one of twenty to petition for the
establishment of the town of Chelmsford, and
this petition was granted on May 10 following,
and the settlement immediately began. He
was one of the selectmen chosen at the first
town meeting there in 1654, again in 1656, and
in 1660-61. On the first division of lands,
February 4, 1661, he was granted twenty-
eight acres. In 1663 he was surveyor of high-
ways and in 1665 one of a committee to lay
out the meadow lands. In 1666 he was one of
the surveyors of Newfield, of which he was
an original proprietor, and afterwards he was
one of the surveyors of North Chelmsford.
He is of record in 1664 as possessing an
orchard of apple trees, orchards being much
desired in the colony at that time. Edward
Spalding died February 26, 1670. His will
was made "the 13th day of Feb. 1666" and in
it he makes "Rachel Spalding my wife my sole
executor." This was probated April 5, 1670.
The inventory of his estate amounted to one
hundred and forty pounds, eight shillings, ten
pence. Edward Spalding's first wife, Mar-
garet, died at Braintree, in August, 1640, and
his daughter Grace the following year. His
second wife, Rachel, died before April 5, 1670.
The children of first wife were: John, Ed-
ward and Grace; of second wife: Benjamin,
Joseph, Dinah and Andrew, who is next men-
tioned.

(II) Andrew, youngest child of Edward
and Rachel Spalding, was born November 19,
1652, died May 5, 1713. He succeeded by the
terms of his father's will to the paternal estate,
and was a deacon of the church at the time of
his death, and in that position he was succeeded
by his son Andrew and grandson Ephraim.
His will was executed June 6, 1712, and he
signed it with his mark. He married, April
30. 1674, Hannah Jefes, a daughter of Henry
Jefes, of Billerica. She died January 21, 1730.
Their children were : Hannah, Andrew,
Henry, John, Rachel, William, Joanna, Benoni
and Mary.



(III) Andrew (2), eldest son of Andrew
(1) and Hannah (Jefes) Spalding, was born
March 25, 1678, in Chelmsford, where he
passed his life and died November 7, 1753.
He was a deacon in the church there. He
received, as his brothers did, a portion of real
estate before his father's death, and an equal
share of that portion in which his mother had
a life estate after her death. On September
2, 1726, he deeded land in Londonderry, New
Hampshire, to John Gofre, of that town. The
deed was dated Dunstable, September 2, 1726.
He married, February 5, 1701, Abigail Warren,
who died May 12, 1768. Their children were :
Andrew, Jacob and Henry (twins), Josiah,

27, 1714, in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, and
died about 1790. He removed to New Ipswich,
New Hampshire, but after a few years
returned to Westford, where he died. He mar-
ried (first) Anna, whose surname is unknown.
She was admitted to the church of Westford,
Massachusetts, September 4, 1737, and died

(V) Benjamin, eldest child of James and
Anna Spalding, was born in Westford, Mass-
achusetts, March 15, 1738, and was baptized
March 26, 1738. William, his son, stated that
his father went from Westford, Massachusetts,
to Ashburnham, Massachusetts, then called
Dorchester-Canada, as the town was granted
to the soldiers of Dorchester, in consideration
of their services in an expedition against Can-
ada, in 1690; from Ashburnham he went to
Jaffrey, New Hampshire. When he married
his second wife, he removed to Marlboro, New

The surname Pratt occurs among
PRATT the earliest English family rec-
ords, before the year 1200, and
indicates that the family came with the Nor-
mans to England. John Pratt ordc Pratcllis
or de Pratis, as then generally spelled, held
the Manor of Patrickborne (Merton Bridge
and Pelham Hundred) in 1200. Four brothers.
John, William, Engebraw and Peter de
Pratellis, figured prominently in the reign
of Richard I and John, all living in 1201.
John was a favorite minister. In 1191 Will-
iam and Peter both made a gallant record in
the Crusade. John Pratt was in parliament
from Beverly in 1298 and 1305. Before the
year 1300 the family was well known and
widely scattered through England, and the
shortened form of the name Prat was the com-
mon spelling. The other forms, Pratte, Pradt,
Praed, Prete, Prate, Praer, and Prayers are
also found. The surname means meadow and
was a place name before it became a surname.

Matthew Pratt was born in Eng-
PRATT land about 1600. He probably
came to New England with the
Gorges company in 1623, though the author of
the genealogy fails to find positive evidence.
Joshua and Phinehas Pratt, brothers, came in
the ship "Anne" to Plymouth in 1623. Phinehas
went to Weymouth later and our first record
of Matthew was at Weymouth. The family
tradition of descendants of Matthew says they
were related. He may have been a younger
brother or nephew. Matthew's name appears
on the list of "old residents" about 1643. His
name was spelled Macute and in similar ways,
but the weight of evidence proves that Matthew
was the correct form. He received a grant
from the general court, December 7, 1636, of
twenty acres. He became one of the
prominent citizens of Weymouth and was
often townsman or selectman. He had other
grants of land from time to time and became
a large landed proprietor. His will was dated
March 25, 1672, and proved April 30, 1673.
He mentions his wife Elizabeth, his children
and grandchildren. He died August 26, 1672.
