once. The various spellings of the name that are found in old
copies of deeds, wills, etc., at least so far as the family under con-
sideration is concerned, are undoubtedly owing to the caprice or
carelessness of scriveners and copyists. A search for original
autographs has shown that all whose names are here recorded, with
a few unimportant exceptions, from the first Robert down to the
present time, have spelled the name DanieU. It is probable that

the addition of a final s in other branches of the family is a growth
of comparatively recent times. There may be families, however,
whose ancestors brought the name Daniels from the old country.

1. Robert Daniell, probably from England, settled in Water-
town, Mass., previous to 1636. (Dates are given as they are found
in the original records. Consequently all dates prior to 1752 are
in old style.) He was grantee of five lots, and purchased the
"homestall" of Nicholas Jacob — 13 acres of land, lying not far from
the present site of the U. S. Arsenal. He was admitted Freeman,
March 14, 1638/9. His wife EKzabeth died Oct. 2, 1643. In 1651
he removed to Cambridge, where he married Reana Andrews,
May 2, 1654. He was released from training, April, 1655, and died
July 6, 1655. His son Samuel was executor of his will. His children
were :

1. Elizabeth; 2. Samuel; 3. Joseph; 4. Sarah; 5. Mary, b. Sept. 2,
1642; m. June 14, 1660, Samson Frary of Medfield, and Hadley; and they had
children as follows: 1. Mary, b. July 24, 1662; 2. Hitte, b. Jan. 16, 1664; 3. Susanna,
b. 1668; 4. John, b. 1669; 5. Nathaniel, b. 1675. Removed to Deerfield, Frary
being the first English planter there. He was killed by Indians, Feb. 29, 1704.
She was taken captive and killed on the way to Canada; (See Morse's Gen.
Sherborn and Hilliston.)

Crest — A hind's head couped or. Motto — Esse quam vidiri.
Of the arms, the Dickinson Memorial says they date
from the reign of Henry III, and were used by John de
Caen of Kenson, temp. Edward I, and have an interestiiig
story to tell. The green fields and the hinds' heads signify
that the bearers were rangers in royal forests, most likely
Epping in Yorkshire. The cross was not added until the
time of the last crusade, and shows the Dickinsons to have
been engaged in that holy war. These arms were borne by
Hugh Dickonsen, who lived about 1422, the supposed
ancestor of John Dickinson, a younger son of Lord Kenson,
alderman of Leeds, the progenitor of the American
Dickinsons and deceased 1525.

Obadiah Dickinson^ = Mehitable Hinsdale.


Mehitable Dickinson* = Nathaniel Fraryj

According to tradition, Nathaniel Dickinson sprang from a
family which traced its descent to Walter of Caen, a kinsman and
companion of William the Conqueror, and through him to Rollo,
first Duke of Normandy. Tradition also relates that Walter wedded
the daughter of the last Saxon Lord of Kenson, and was afterward
known as Walter de Kenson. Just when the family took the angU-
cized form of the surname is unknown, but it was probably early
in the fourteenth century. The two most ancient forms were
Dickensen, then Dicconson. Dickensen appeared in the reign of
Henry VII, but it is not until a century later that the second
syllable is spelled with an z, which is clearly a^corruption of the
original orthography.

78 Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service

The date of Nathaniel Dickinson's arrival in America has not
been ascertained. He was doubtless of the Massachusetts colonists
who removed to Connecticut in 1635 and founded Wethersfield,
where, in 1637, the first record of him is found, and where, in 1640,
he was chosen to the important office of recorder, which he filled
until 1659. He was on the board of selectmen in 1646, and the same
year was sent to represent the town in the Colonial Assembly, and
was honored by his fellow-citizens with re-election for ten years,
serving through the administrations of Governors Haynes, Hopkins,
and Wells. He was also active in religious affairs, and was one of
the deacons of the Wethersfield church. Owing to ecclesiastical
dissensions, pertaining to matters of practice rather than belief, the
pastor, Rev. Mr. Russell, the majority of his church in Wethers-
field, together with many of the Hartford church, resolved to return
to the jurisdiction of Massachusetts. The agreement for removal
was made at Goodman Ward's house in Hartford, 18 April, 1659, and
Mr. Dickinson who was one of the fifty-nine signers to the engage-
ment, was active in promoting the removal to and the founding of
Hadley, and became one of the most trusted men in the town. He
was on the committee to "lay out the boundaries and highways,"
and was one of the seven men, answering to the present selectmen,
chosen 9 November, 1659, ''to order all public occasions that concern
the good of the plantation for the year ensuing." He was the
first recorder of Hadley, was prominently identified with its church,
as he had been with that of Wethersfield, and was elected its first
deacon and one of the committee to build the first meeting-house.
Mr. Dickinson was a member of the Hampshire Troop under
Captain John Pynchon at its formation in 1663. In 1667 he was
one of those chosen to lay out and bound the two meadows granted
for the perpetual use of a grammar school, and was one of the com-
mittee appointed by the town and the trustee of Edward Hopkins,
Esq., in 1669, to have full disposition and management of the
estate given by Mr. Hopkins, and of any other estate that might be
given by the town, or individual donors, for the benefit and main-
tenance of a grammar school in Hadley. This school is now known
as the Hopkins Academy.

(Society Colonial Wars, p. 322) — Nathaniel Dickinson, 1615-1676,
Conn. Deputy, 1642-1656, Soldier 1663.

As further showing Mr. Dickinson's high standing in the com-
munity, it may be stated that Major John Pynchon, upon pur-
chasing the Hadley tract of the Indians, opened an account with
William Lewis, Nathaniel Dickinson, and Nathaniel Ward, as
representatives of the planters, and the final settlement, 29 October,
1663, is acknowledged and attested by Dickinson and Ward.

To the town of Hadley belongs the distinction of being for several
years, the residence of Generals Edward Whalley and Wilham Goffe,
two of the judges who passed the death sentence upon Charles I.
Here, after they had been hunted from town to town throughout
New England, by the minions of Charles II, they found a haven of
rest in the house of the pastor. Rev. John Russell.

TJiree Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service 79

Doubtless Mr. Dickinson, as the intimate friend and next neighbor
of pastor Russell, was in full possession of the secret, and met the
noted regicides from time to time in the pastor's home.

As one of the founders of a great commonwealth, Mr. Dickinson
spent a full and well-rounded life. Referring to him, M, F. Dickin-
son, Jr., Esq., of Boston, President of the Dickinson Association,
in an address of welcome at the reunion of the Dickinson family,
Amherst, Massachusetts, 8 August, 1883, said: "The records of such
a life, v/hich filled so important a place in the settlement of this
country, and which appears to have been enriched by useful and
honorable deeds, deserve to be perpetuated. No pencil of artist
has preserved to us the semblance of his features. Nothing remains
from which we can even imagine how he looked. Not a single word
that he ever spoke has come down to our day. No gravestone
marks his resting-place. We only know that he sleeps in the old
burial ground in Hadley, but 'no man knoweth his sepulchre unto
this day'."

He died at Hadley, 16 June, 1696. He mentions Wm. Gull in his
will. He married Mrs. Ann Gull, whose maiden name has not been
ascertained, nor the date or place of marriage.

(Page 582) Arms — Argent; a wi-
vern with wings displayed; gules. It is
a maxim with the heralds that the more
simple a coat of arms, the more ancient
it is; this is too obvious to need any
other proof in support of it, than the
repetition of the maxim; which eminently
applies to the arms of Drake.

The crest of this coat, as given by
GuUim, is an "Eagle displayed," which
seems to have been laid aside for the
"dexter arm erect, holding a battle-axe,"
some ages ago, but wherefore does not
appear. The motto has always been:
Aquila nan capit muscas.

The figure in the shield, or escutch-
eon, is called by heralds a Wivern, which
is another name for the fabled Dragon
of antiquity. Draco or Drago, is the ?&*»<iU>^

Roman name of Drake, and as late as the J^ITH'^X

time of Sir Francis Drake, writers fre-
quently coupled his name with that of Dragon. Lope de Vega calls him by no
other name throughout his long poem of ten books, which he composed about
him; and Sir Winston Churchill (who married a Drake) says, Sir Francis found

Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service 81

no Dragon more terrible than himself to guard the treasures of the Spaniards;
and surely the Spaniards had reason, if any people could have, to imagine that
Sir Francis Drake was descended and that, too, in no remote degree, from the
old master of all that was terrible.

The Romans had among their legions Draconarii, who were the bearers
of their standards; hence the name Drake may have been derived from that
Roman officer. The Romans got the name from the Greeks, and it seems to
have been known other than an ideal one, from the Mediterranean to the Baltic ,
in earlier and later times.

We find that the Dragon was displayed in the banners of the Britons as
early as 1448, and that churches have borne the emblem from time immemorial.

Another coat of arms was granted by Queen Elizabeth to Sir
Francis, the great navigator.

The family of Drake has been distinguished in England from the
earliest ages by a long array of noble men — soldiers, navigators,
clergymen, martyrs and authors. But our limits forbid us from
entering more into details; the curious reader will find these items
in the little work from which we have made the preceding extracts.
It is sufiicient for our purpose to say that among the many noble
families of the name, in Great Britain, the family who held their
seat at Ashe were ever prominent, and from them it is supposed that
the Drakes of New England were descended.

Of this family was John, one of the Council of Plymouth, a
member of the original company estabhshed by King James, in
1606, for settling New England. Several of his sons came hither
and settled, viz.: Richard, who came over with two or more sons,
and nine daughters, and settled at Hampton, N. H.; and John,
who came to Boston in 1630 and settled in Windsor. From these
are descended all of the name in America.

John married Elizabeth Rogers.

John Drake, Sr. (1640), had a lot granted to him twenty-two
and one half rods wide. He had three sons and two daughters, all
born before he came to Windsor. His son Job had a lot granted to
him. He married Mary, daughter of Henry Wolcott, 1646, and
had two sons and five daughters. The second son, John, had a lot
granted to him. He married Hannah, daughter of Deacon Moore,
and had five sons and six daughters, 1649-1674. The third son,
Jacob, married Mary, daughter of John Bisseii, and had no children.
He had the homestead.

John Drake, Jr.^, married Hannah Moore, November 30, 1648;
was one of the first settlers at Simsbury; inventory presented Sep-
tember 12, 1689; Simsbury property amounted to £393/15s.; had
a son John (now of Danbury) who in 1708 chose a guardian; she
d. February 16, 1686.

Jobs b June 15, 1651. Ruth, b. Dec. 8, 1657.

Hannah, b. Aug. 8, 1653.

John Drake, the father of Ruth, was descended from the illus-
trious English family of that name, which had its seat at Ashe. In

82 Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service

England the name has long been borne by many distinguished as
navigators, clergymen, martyrs and authors. Among the foremost
of these English families is that which has its seat at Ashe, County
Devon, and from it descended the greater portion of the Drakes of
Massachusetts and Connecticut. The line of ancestry of the Wind-
sor (Conn.) Drakes may be thus summarized:
