Shaw is a very common English
SHAW surname, used also as a termina-
tion. It means a small wood,
from the Anglo-Saxon Scua, a shade or place
â– shadowed or sheltered by trees. Several par-
ishes and places bear the name, and from these
doubtless the families of Shaw took their sur-
names. We find also the name in combination
as Abershaw, Bagshaw, Cockshaw. Henshaw,
Bradshaw, Longshaw and Eldershaw. The
coat-of-arms of the Shaw family of Kilmar-
nock, Scotland, is: Azure three covered cups
two and one or ; on a chief argent a merchant
ship under sail proper, a canton gules charged
with the mace of the city of London sur-
mounted by a sword in saltire, also proper
pommel and hilt of the second. Crest : A
demi-savage affrontee, wreathed about the
head and waist proper, in the dexter hand a
key or, the sinister resting on a club reversed
also proper. Supporters : Dexter a savage
wreathed about the head and waist with lau-
rel, his exterior hand resting on a club all
proper (emblematical of fortitude), the sinis-
ter hand presenting an escroll, thereon in-
scribed "The King's Warrant of Precedence"
sinister, an emblematical figure of the city of
London, the dexter arm supporting the shield,
the sinister extended to receive the escroll pre-

sented by the other supporter. Motto: "I mean
well." The other armorials of the Shaw fami-
lies of Scotland are the same or similar in de-

The Griffith family is of
GRIFFITH Welsh origin, and claims

descent from Llewellyn, last
of the Welsh Kings, who was beheaded by
the English in 1282, son of Griffith, also king
of Wales. No less than thirty branches of
this ancient family, according to Burke, bear
coats-of-arms. The arms of the royal family
were : Gules three passant in pale argent
armes gules. Several Griffiths came early to
Maryland and Virginia and founded families
of importance and distinction.

Joshua Griffith, first in New England, came
with Henry Collins, in the ship "Abigail,"
from the parish of Stepney, London, England.
Nothing further is known of him. but the

Avon, May 8, 1885. He was an iron moulder

by trade, and operated a blast furnace. He
lived at Carver for many years. In religion
he was a Universalist, and attended the Union
church, in which services of various denomina-
tions were held. In politics he was a Republi-
can. He married Lucy M., daughter of John
Bent, granddaughter of Bartlett Murdock.
Her father was one of the oldest manufac-
turers of the town of Carver, commencing
business about 1792, at what was known as
Benson's Forge, making wrought iron bars,
drawing them out with a hammer, in 1798-09
he went to Pope's Point and ran a blast fur-
nace until about 1817, when he sold out, and
in company with Timothy Slavery bought the
Federal Furnace, and had charge of those

1 V ) Major Thomas Bartlett Griffith, son
of Ellis Griffith, was born in Middleborough,
May 17, 1823, and died in Roxbury February
18, 1897. He was educated in the public schools
of his native town, and assisted his father on
the farm up to the age of seventeen, when he
went on a whaling and merchant voyage to
South America. On his return he was em-
ployed as a clerk in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1842-
3, and then returned to Massachusetts. His
health not being of the best, he embarked on
another whaling voyage from Wareham, in
the bark Montezuma, for the Indian ocean,
cruising most of the time along the easteVn
coast of Africa, calling at the different vil-
lages along the coast, which were mostly in-
habited by Arabs and Hottentots. During this
voyage he visited the Isle of St. Helena, and
saw the tomb of Napoleon, and also assisted
at the burial of Mrs. Judson, one of the India
missionaries. Returning home, he was clerk
for a short time in New York City, and then
returned to Carver, and entered the employ of
Benjamin Ellis & Company as Clerk, where
he remained eight years. In 1853, in company
with George W. Bent, under the firm name of
Rent, Griffith & Company, he engaged in the
manufacture of parlor grates, continuing until
1868, when Bent retired and the firm became
Murdock & Company. This partnership was
terminated in 1875 % Mr. Murdock's death,
and a stock company was formed, with Major



Griffith as president and Samuel Shaw treas-
urer. Major Griffith gave his personal super-
vision to the manufacturing department, get-
ting up the patterns, furnishing designs and
supervising construction. Changes were fre-
quent and radical in the style of goods, whicn
embraced everything in the line of iron goods
for the furnishing of dwelling houses, hotels,
stores, etc. He gave much of his time in set-
ting grates and fireplaces where the best re-
sults were desired in the way of heat and
draught. When France, England and Ger-
many began putting on the market brass goods
to take the place of iron, Major Griffith was
one of the first in the United States to give at-
tention to that branch of manufacturing. In
1877, before much progress had been made in
the matter, he went to Europe and gained
such information as would assist him in the
work. The knowledge he had gained was ap-
plied, and his establishment took a high rank
among the progressive manufacturers in this
country. The salesroom was in Boston, and
the aim of the firm has always been to put out
only first class goods of superior design and
workmanship. The firm of Bent, Griffith &
Company was situated first at 11 Marshall
street, Boston, later at 21 Washington, and at
2 and 18 Beacon street, and 156 Boylston
street. Later, as the Murdock Parlor (irate
Company, they did an extensive business in
and around Boston in tiles and mosaic work,
and many of the historical tablets in the city
are of their construction.

In 1852 Major Griffith headed an enlistment
roll for a military company which was char-
tered as Company K, Third Regiment Massa-
chusetts Volunteers. In 1861 he was still a
militiaman, and started to Fortress Monroe,
but was ordered back as a recruiting officer
to fill the Third Regiment. In 1862 he was
mustered into his regiment as captain of Com-
pany F. (nine months' volunteers). He
served in North Carolina, stationed most of
the time in Newberne, and was in the battles
of Kinston. Whitehall, Goldsborough, and
Blount Creek. In 1863 the regiment was mus-
tered out, and Major Griffith returned to Car-
ver. In 1868 he was commissioned captain of
what was then the Eighty-sixth unattached
company, and in the fall of that year it was
placed in the Third Regiment. In 1870 he
was elected major of the regiment, holding
this position until 1875, when he resigned. In
politics Major Griffith was independent, and
his first vote was for General Taylor for pres-
ident. He then voted for Bell and Everett,

but remained loyal to the government at the
time of the rebellion, and after that time voted
mostly with the Republican party. He served
as selectman and assessor in the town of
Carver, also postmaster many years, was a
member of the state legislature in 1870, and
held various minor positions. He was a mem-
ber of the Republican town committee of
Wareham; treasurer of the Onset Associa-
tion ; trustee of the Wareham Savings Bank,
and a heavy owner in shipping, especially in
the Boston Fruit Company's steamship line,
engaged in the banana trade in Jamaica. He
owned large amounts of real estate in Middle-
borough, Onset and Carver, and was largely
interested in Oregon mines and lands, and in
other business enterprises. He was one of the
organizers, and for a number of years was
president of the Onset Bay Street Railway Co.
He was a member of Gen. E. W. Pierce Post
No. 8, Grand Army of the Republic, and
Camp Major T. B. Griffith, Sons of Veterans,
of Middleborough, was honored with his name
in recognition of his services in behalf of his
country. In religion he was a Spiritualist,
and his attitude in this respect as well as his
personality is well described in his obituary in
the Wareham Times, a part of which is as fol-
lows :

"Liberality in thought was the keynote to
the life and the existence of this remark-
able man, to whom belongs more than any one
the measure due for maintaining in his old
age, the liberal movement in ideas and attend-
ant material development at Onset Bay, which
has latterly made the Summer School of Phil-
osophy set up there, famous from America to
farthest India. The eagerness with which he
accepted and aided the new dispensation a
Onset the past two years, that aims to attain
the highest in progressive thought and science,
attests to this. Major Griffith was the enemy
of what is sometimes termed the old-fash-
ioned hellfire and brimstone orthodoxy. It
stifled him and he hated it. He was a good
hater. His keen pricks into that phase of it
which appealed to his insight as hypocrisy,
were pungent, and counted against its continu-
ance in his presence most tellingly. The hum-
bly pious man who asked for aid on account
of his piety got a strong recommendation us-
uallv to depend more upon himself and less
upon his faith, though rarely was the suppli-
cant sent away empty handed if his cause ap-
peared at all just. This antagonism to shams
made him a marked man. Accused of antag-
onism and a spirit which he did not feel



against the truth that is inherent to the
church, he would scathingly denounce what he
considered a totally false position. Major
Griffith's religion was very real to him. His
advanced position and eagerness to compre-
hend the new thought in modern philosophy
and scientific research, served to make him a
most interesting conversationalist to those
who could appreciate his power and the nat-
ural bent of his nature. His love for and care
of the welfare of Onset Bay was the bright
light that illuminated his declining years. He
made the common enemies to the camp
ground, who would have perverted its propa-
ganda to sectarian lines and its platform to
narrow, unliberal position, his personal foe.
And then he fought. Almost always he won.
When he did fail, subsequent events proved it
to be a greater public misfortune than per-
sonal loss to him."

Major Griffith founded the Mediums' Home
at Onset. At his funeral a military escort
composed of picked men from Gen. E. W.
Pierce Post 8, G. A. R.. and Major Thomas
B. Griffith Camp, Sons of Veterans, of Mid-
dleborough, accompanied the remains to the
cemetery at South Carver, where the last rites
were performed. Major Griffith married, De-
cember 22, 1852, Hannah Maria Dunham, born
December 15, 1827, at Carver, daughter of
Isaac L. and Hannah P. (Cobb) Dunham. She
is now living with her daughter, Mrs. Benja-
min W. Shaw, at South Weymouth. Chil-
dren: 1. Henry, died aged six months. 2.
Hannah Bartlett, born November 14, 1855 ;
married Benjamin W. Shaw (see Shaw fam-
ily). 3. Thomas Bartlett, died aged nine

This surname was originally
ATWOOD spelled Att W r ode and was un-
doubtedly given in the first in-
stance to one or more families who resided
in or near a forest. The coat-of-arms of no
less than sixteen Atwood families are recorded
in the Herald's College in England. The
various Atwood families in America are not
the posterity of one immigrant, but trace their
lineage to several early English colonists. It
is quite probable, however, that they are for
the most part descended from the Attwoods
of Sanderstead in Surrey, where according to
a burial record in the parish church, they
were living as early as the year 1520. The
immigrants of this name were : John, who
came previous to 1635 ; James, freeman in
1639; Herman, prior to 1643; John, arrived

at Plymouth in 1643 ! Stephen, who settled
in Eastern Massachusetts ; Dr. Thomas,
(sometimes called Captain), was of Hartford,
Connecticut, in 1664, and settled in Wethers-
held three years later ; and Joseph Woode
(Atwood), ancestor of the Taunton Atwoods,
a record of whom follows.

(I) Joseph Woode (Atwood), who was of
Taunton before 1679, married, January 1,
1679, Hester Walker, born in 1650, died April
8, 1696, daughter of James and Elizabeth
(Phillips) Walker, of Taunton. James was a
son of "Widow" Walker, of Rehoboth, Mas-
sachusetts, and both were natives of England.
For his second wife Joseph Atwood married
Abigail Paul, October 18, 1697. His children
were: 1. Joseph, born August 4, 1681, died
September 26, 1724; married Mary Reed. 2.
John, February 28, 1683, died in 1764. 3.
Ephraim. 4. Joanna, who was of his second

(II) Ephraim, son of Joseph and Hester
(Walker) Atwood, was born in Taunton about
the year 1689, died August 14, 1776. He re-
sided in Dighton, Massachusetts, and repre-
sented that town in the general court in 1718.
He married, August 17, 1724, Ruth Richmond,
born March 7, 1705-06, died November 16,
1776. Children, all born in Dighton, were :
