Demorest.

Mr. Hungerford, when a boy of 14 at Farnham, Que., became acquainted
with the railway locomotive; metaphorically speaking, he boarded it then and
made it carry him from the lathe of the machinist's apprentice, to the chair of
vice-president of the Grand Division of the Canadian National Railways, the
world's greatest railway. Mr. Hungerford is a man of quick action who never seems
to be in a hurry. He has a wide circle of friends in the railway world, friends that
he made while mastering his various jobs in the mechanical department at im-
portant railway points clear across the country. First as a machinist's apprentice
and then in the mechanical department of the Canadian Northern Railroad of
the Western Lines. At the end of five years the mechanical Une of the road
was in first-class shape and S. J. Hungerford's jurisdiction was extended over the
Eastern Lines of the system. In 1915, when a vacancy occurred in the manage-
ment of the Eastern Lines of the Canadian Northern, Mr. Hungerford was ap-
pointed vice-president of operating and maintenance activities. On Feb. 20, 1924,
the three Grand Divisions of the Atlantic, Eastern and West Regions consolidated
and Mr. Hungerford was made vice-president in charge of operations and main-
tenance. After the roads were consolidated the name was changed to Canadian
National Railways. Those who know Mr. Hungerford well, have complete con-
fidence in his capacity. He is regarded as one of those men, who with the president
win set new standards of devotion to duty and loyalty to employers; in this case
the general pubhc of Canada. In 3932 Mr. Hungerford was made President of
Central Vermont and Canadian National Railroads.

(Copied from "Montreal Star.")

Mr. Hungerford's experience has ranged more than 45 years from the humble
position of machinist apprentice, to acting President of the Canadian National
Railways, the largest railway system in the world. He was born in Farnham,
less than a score of miles North of the Vermont border, 61 years ago. He en-
tered railroading at Farnham, Que. in 1886. Mr. Hungerford has long been
recognized as one of the foremost Railway Operating Executives of the Con-
tinent, and his experience has included service in some of the largest Railway
Systems in Canada and the United States. As "'Vice-President in charge of
Operations and Construction of the Canadian National subsequent to the period
of the disastrous Vermont floods in 1927, he played a prominent role in the re-
construction of the flood-torn Central Vermont Railway Lines.

HYDE ANCESTRY
Descendants of William Hyde

William Hyde was born in England and came over to New
England with Hooker. William Hide was an original proprietor
of Hartford, Surveyor of Highways, removed to Saybrook 1641,
thence to Norwich 1659 or '60. William Hyde died Jan. 6, 1681.
He served frequently as Selectman. William Hyde was father of
Samuel. William Hyde was disabled at Hartford, Conn., before he
removed to Norwich, 1659/60. (See N. S. F. & P., No. 1790.)

Dea. Samuel Hyde, aged 39, embarked at London in the "Jona-

him several years), he gave his house, &c; to son Samuel, his home-
stead, and mentions several grand-children. Jonathan Hyde, Sen'r,
of Newton, was his brother, and probably considerably younger

Humphrey Hide Ancestry

Humphrey Hide, as the name is written in the F. T. Rec, was at
Windsor before coming to Fairfield. The Hyde family are believed
to have been, and there seems to be no question about it, of the
best blood of England. They have always been staunch, sterling,
thrifty men in the town; and for generations a Deacon Hide has
represented the family in the Greens Farms Congregational Church.

Humphrey Hide bought land at Windsor, 1645, which he sold 1653 and rem.

CAPTAIN JOHNSON ANCESTRY

("New England Historical and Genealogical Register," Vol.
LXXV, 1921, page 236), Leaders in the Winthrop Fleet, 1630;
communicated by J. Gardner Bartlett, of Boston, Mass.

The following list of some of the leading men who came to New
England in the fleet with Winthrop in 1630 is preserved in the
Colonial Office Papers, Vol. 5, No. 78, in the Public Record Office,
London.

A Note of the names of the principal undertakers for the plantation of the
Massachusetts bay in Newe England that are themselves gonne over with theire
wives and children.

Mr. Joh: Winthroppe Esqr: Governor, and three of his sonnes.

Sr Rich: Saltonstall Knight, three of his sonnes and 2 daughters.

Mr. Isaake Johnson Esqr and the Lady Arbella his wife Sister to the Earle

of Lincolne.
Mr. Charles Fines the said Earles brother.
Mr. Dudley, his wife, 2 sonnes and 4 daughters.
Mr. Coddington and his wife.
Mr. Pincheon and his wife and 3 daughters.
Mr. VassaU and his wife.
Mr. Revell.

(Endorsed)
The names of the New plantators in New England.
For the right honorable the Lord Carleton.

This hst raises a few interesting points. From various evidences
it appears that the three sons brought by Governor Winthrop were
Henry, Stephen and Samuel. Sir Richard Saltonstall had four
sons, Richard, Samuel, Robert and Henry. Probably the youngest
son, Henry, was the one left in England, and he came later to New
England. The daughters were Rosamond and Grace. Charles
Fiennes, born about 1607, was the fifth son of Thomas Fiennes,
alias Clinton, third Earl of Lincoln and a younger brother of Theo-



180 Three Hundred Colonial Ancestors and War Service

philus Fiennes, fourth Earl of Lincoln. He entered Christ's College,
Cambridge, in Easter, 1624, but did not proceed to a degree. He
remained only a few weeks in New England, and then returned to
England. ("Savage, in his 'Gen. Diet.,' has erroneously confused
this passenger with another person of the same name.") The four
daughters brought over by Thomas Dudley were Ann, Patience,
Sarah and Mercy. His son, Samuel Dudley, baptized Nov. 30,
1608, is known to have come with his parents; but who was the
other son referred to in the list? The father married April 25, 1603,
Dorothy Yorke, and when elected deputy governor, May 17, 1637,
is called "Senior," a term which implies a son Thomas then living
in England.

(Genealogy — "Connecticut," Vol. II, page 836, The Johnson
Line) — John Johnson, immigrant ancestor, was born in England
and came to America in the fleet with Winthrop, accompanied by
his wife Margery, who died at Roxbury, June 9, 1655, and their
sons, Isaac and Humphrey, and probably other children. Savage
thinks there were three daughters. Johnson was admitted a free-
man. May 18, 1630. He settled in Roxbury and was called a yeoman.
He was chosen by the General Court, Oct. 19, 1630, constable of
Roxbury and surveyor of all the arms of the Colony, and was a
very industrious man in his place. He kept a tavern and was agent
for Mrs. Catherine Sumpner, of London, in 1653. He was a man
of wealth and much distinction. He was a deputy to the General
Court in 1634 and many years afterwards. His house was burned
Aug. 2, 1645, with seventeen barrels of his country's powder and
many arms in his charge. At the same time the town records were
destroyed. He was elected a member of the Artillery Company in
1658. He signed the inventory of Joseph Weld's estate in 1646.
He died Sept. 30, 1650, and his will was proved Oct. 15, following,
dividing his property among his five children, the eldest to have a
double portion. The estate amounted to six hundred and sixty
pounds. He married (2) Grace (Negus) Fawer, widow of Barnabas
Fawer. Her will was made Dec. 21, 1671, and proved Dec. 29,
1671, leaving all her estate to her brothers, Jonathan and Benjamin
Hegus.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, thirty-second President of the
United States, is a direct descendant of Captain John Johnson.

Alvin Page Johnson.)
