OTHEK PIONEEB SANFORDS



JOHN SANFORD (PIONEER)

The following tables are built up after the plan stated in "Key
to Work," page 86. Since several indices in the work would be
confusing, they have not been indexed.

1. JOHN^ SANFORD (SAMPFORD), son of Samuel and
Eleanor Sampford of Alfurd, Lincokishire, Eng., d. 1653. Ports
mouth. R. I. : m. (1) Elizabeth Weed, sister of Henrj-, a rich Boston
merchant: m. ('2) Bridget, dau. of William and Ann Hutchinson,
bap. -Jan. 15, 1618-9. Alford, Eng. ; d. 1698, at Boston. She was
whipped twice in August. 1677, for attending Quaker meetings.

Mr. Sanford was surely an intimate acquaintance of John
Winthrop and his son John in England. He certainly came over
with John Winthrop, Sr., in the spring of 1630 or with John
Winthrop, Jr.. in the ship Lyon, arriving in Boston, Nov. 3, 1631.
but probably with the son John. On Mar. 2, 1629-30, Gov, Win-
throp wrote to his wife. "Our two boys and James Downing
(■ nephew of <^tov. Winthrop) John Sam ford and Mary Ann and
most of my servants are gone this day toward Southampton."
Quer>-: Did not .Mr. Samford come in the Arbella or, at lea.st in
the tieet: (Winthrop's Journal, Ed. 1833, Vol 1, Appendix.)

On Jan. 9, 1631-2, Henry Jacie in England wrote to Mr. Sam-
ford asking as to the v.inds either on the trip over or in New
Ena-lan<l. If lie meant the former, IMr. Samford must have come
in Nov 1631 and if the latter, then he probably came in the spring
of 1630. {StP 3 .1//ZN.S-. Fli.sf. Coll. I. 23.5: alsn 4 .l/a.«. 77. C. 17,
476. 17!), 481. \

From July 30, 1630. to Oct. 10, 1632, 151 members had joined
the First Church of Boston. Mr. Sampford 's name is the 115tli
on the list. Mr. Sampford was admitted freeman Apr. 3, 1632.
Betiveen 1633 and 1637 he was often elected on committ>-e to allot
lands. (Drake's Hist, of Boston.)

On May 14. 1634, he was appointed to examine as to the eru-
dition of the ordinance and on Sept. 3. chosen cannoneer of the port
of Boston, and again on Oct. 2S, 1836. On Nov. 27, 1637. Mr. San-
foard with fifty-eight others were disanned by order of the court,
after the trial of Anne Hutchinson, who, with John Wheel-m-ight, a
classmate of Oliver Cromwell, were leading the people into dan-
gerous errors through the Antinionian controversy. He and four-
teen others out of the fifty-eight fled to Portsmouth. R. I. There
he was, appointed June 27. 1638, to repair highways. const<ible in
1640, made Freeman ilar. 16. 1641. Lieutenant in 1644. and in
1653 became President of Portsmouth and Newport.

He was a most capable business man. as is fully shown by his
will dated June 22. 1653. and proved the same year. The inven-
tory showed 824 lis. Id. Among the items are two negros and a
nesTo boy. 62. 10s. The estate was well distributed among his
widow and children. Mr. A. D. Hodges. Jr.. of Boston, is con-
vineed that there were two -Tohn Samfords in Port.-<nioiith 1653-55



JOHN SANFORD (PIONEEB) 1387

and later. His widow Dec, IB.lo. the third wife of Major Wm.
Phillips of Boston. Her will is dated Sept. 29, 1696, and proved
Aug. 18. 1698. She nindi- bequests to the children and grand-
children.
