and David. The last twoseom to have been born
under the same evil star which had brought
so much misfortune to the family from the
time of the unhappy Richard, Avhose religious
zeal had driven him from home and wealth
to live in exile in the fens of Plolland. The}'-
both were officers in the ami}' of James II.,
under the command of Prince Charles Ed-
ward, and both perished in the battle of
Culloden.

The eldest son, Daniel, was born in 1712.
He married Fear Freeman, and from him has
sprung the Chatham branch of the family,
and the Boston branch now represented by
the Hon. David Sears, of Boston.

Richard, David, and Daniel, were the
three sons of Daniel. The youngest died
without issue. Richard, the eldest, a senator
of Massachusetts, married Hetty JMarshall,
and had three sons, Richard, Daniel, and
Marshall. Richard and ilarshall died before
their father, without issue. Daniel died
unmarried.



David, the second son of Daniel, was born
in 1752, and removed to Boston in 1770. He
married Ann, daughter, of John Still AVin-
throp, of New London, in Connecticut, Esq.;
fifth in descent from John Winthrop, first
Governor of Massachusetts, and founder of
Boston. Mr. Sears purchased of General
Knox, of the military family of General
Washington, and Secretar^^-of-War, a large
estate in Maine, lying on Penobscot River,
being a remainder and a part of the ori-
ginal grant, from the Earl of Warwick to
Beauchamp and Leverett, known as the
" Waldo Patent,"' and confirmed by the Le-
gislature of Massachusetts. The Indian
chief, JMadocowando, Sagamore and Prince of
Penobscot, granted and surrendered liis
sovereignty and title in 1G94. This territory
was originally thirty miles square, and in-
cluded all the islands in Penobscot Bay.
Tiie present property lies principally in the
towns of Searsmont, Knox, Prospect, and
Searsport, including Brigadier's Island, in
the Bay.

David Sears, the only son of this last, a
senator of Massachusetts, was born in 1787.
He married Jliriam Clarke, daughter of the
Hon. Jonathan ]\Iason, a senator of Rlassa-
chusetts, and representative in the Congress
of the United States, and has had is.sue,

The NcAvalls are of considerable antiquity,
and from grants of lands, title deeds, and
other documents still in the possession of the
family, deduce a continued and unbroken
line of descent connected with residence on
the family estate of "Toato House," for
nearly four centuries. The estate, formerly
called Town House, or Logher Town House,
came into their possession through the mar-
riage of AVilliain Newall, of Shipden, near
Halifax, co. York, temp. Henry A-"!., with
Isabella, dau. and elder coheiress of Christo-
pher Kyrshagh, of that place, the descendant
and representative of the ancient and feudal
family of De la Tomi. The first mention we
find of the family is in a deed, dated 21st Dec.

Johnston, of Wairiston. Tliis family,
in common with the Johnstons of Hilton, is
descended from GowAiN Johnston, the
chief in Annandale, who had the charter of
the lauds in Clerk Orcliard, &c., in 1555.

Archibald Johnston, his grandson,
having married Rachel, daughter of Sir
John Arnot, Treasurer Depute and Lord
Provost of Edinburgh, had three sons : 1.
James, of Warriston ; 2. Samuel, of Schien-
nes ; and 3. Joseph, of Hilton. The eldest,

James Johnston, of Warriston, was a



Senator of the College of Justice. He
married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Thomas
Craig, a distinguished lawyer, and had issue :
1. Archibald; 2. Beatrice, married Sir
Patrick Congalton ; 3. Elizabeth, married
Robert Burnet, known by the title of Lord
Oriinond, by whom she had two sons, the
elder being Gilbert, the celebrated Bishop
of Salisbury.

Sir Archibald Johnston, the only
son, was a very eminent leader of the
Covenanters. He was knighted by Cliarles
I. in 1641, and addressed as Lord War-
riston, in 1G43. In tluit year he repre-
sented the county of Edinburgh in Parlia-
ment, and was appointed Speaker to the
Barons. In 1649 he was nominated Lord
Clerk Register. After the battle of Dunbar,
in which he was present, he lived for some
years in retirement, but was at length pre-
vailed on to accept office under Cromwell,
who (9th July, 1657) reappointed him Lord
Clerk Register, and called him to his House
of Peers under the title of Lord Warriston.

After the death of the Protector, he acted
as President of tlie Committee of Safety,
when Richard Cromwell had resigned the
reins of Government. At the Restoration,
orders were issued for liis arrest; and,
knowing that from his compliance with tlie
usurper, and his uniform and intrepid sup-
port of the Covenanters, he might expect no
mercy from the new Government, he escaped
to France, and was outlawed lOtli October,
1660.

An Act of Forfeiture being passed in his
absence, he was condemned to deatli, 15th
May, 1661. An emissary of Government
subsequently discovered his retreat at
Rouen, and, with permission of the French
Government, brought liirn prisoner to Eng-
land. He was on his arrival lodged in the
Tower, but was soon afterwards removed to
Edinburgh, where, without tlie formality of
trial, he was hanged at the Cross, 22iul
July, 1665, dying with the utmost constancy
and Christian fortitude.

The Act of Forfeiture against him was,
however, reversed in all respects by the Act
of AVilliaraand Mary, 22nd July, 1690, " as if
the same sentence and doom had never been
given or pronounced."

His nephew, Bishop Burnet, in the course
of a suminar}' of his character, observes that
" he was a man of great application, could
seldom sleep more tlian three hours in twenty-
four, and that he had great quickness of
thouglit, with an extraordinary memory." Of
his cliildren, 1. Elizabeth, married Thomas
Hepburn, of Iluinbie ; and secondly, "\^^il-
liam, first Viscount Strathallan, by whom
she had issue the second viscount, and a
daughter Elizabeth, married to the sixth Earl
of Kinnoul ; 2. Rachel, married Sir J.
