STANTON H. SAVLES. John Savles (1),
the immigrant ancestor of Stanton H. Sayles, of
Uxbridge, Massachusetts, born 1630, died 1681, was-
an early settler in Rhode Island. He bought a house
there January 27, 1650, of John Throckmorton, and
May 12, 1652, he bought land of Ralph Earle. He
was an assistant to the governor in 1653, 1655, 1657,
1658 and 1659. He was admitted a freeman 1655,
and was a commissioner 1655-59; served the town
of Providence as town clerk from 1655 to 1657 in-
clusive; was treasurer 1659 to 1666 inclusive; took
the oath of allegiance May 31, 1666; served on the
grand jury in 1669. 1670 and 1671 ; was a deputy
1669, 1670, 1671, 1674, 1677 and 1678; served in
1670 and 1671 on the town council. He married,
1650, Mary, daughter of Roger Williams.

Her father, Rev. Roger Williams, was born about
1601, son of James Williams, citizen and merchant
tailor of London, England, and his wife. Alice.
Roger Williams arrived in Boston, with his wife
Mary, February 5, 1630. He became dis-
contented and removed to Plymouth colony,
where after a time he was chosen assistant
minister with Rev. Ralph Smith. In 1633 Williams
removed to Salem and became minister of the
church there. He wrote a treatise in which he main-
tained that it was wrong for the colony to depend
upon the King's patent as a ground of claiming
the country; that the churches of England were
unchristian ; and he sent a copy to the governor,
was rebuked for his sentiments, and promised to
refrain from teaching such things publicly, but
broke the truce later. Williams taught that a magis-
trate ought not to tender the oath of fidelity to
an unregenerate man, and that no Christian ought
to pray with such a person, though it were his wife
or child ; that a man ought not to give thanks after
the Sacrament or after a meal, etc.; he wrote a let-
ter to his church in August, 1635, protesting that he
would not commune with the churches at the Bay
who held with the magistrates, nor with them un-
less they would refuse all such communion; and
for this reason refused to pray with his own wife;
and kept a meeting at his house for tho^e who
agreed with him. After much discussion Williams
was sentenced September 3, 1635, to depart out
of the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts colony
within six weeks. He then removed to Providence.
After removing he adapted views antagonistic to
the baptism of infants and in favor of immersion
of adults; but his condemnation by the Massachu-
setts Bay Colony was on wholly different grounds.
He rendered most valuable service to all New Eng-
land by his wise influence over the Indians, avert-
ing several threatened conflicts. He w'ent to Eng-
land about 1644 an< J brought back a charter for
Providence Plantation and letters of commendation
from persons of high station, which favorably im-
pri ed Massachusetts Bay authorities. (The pre-
ceding biography is taken from Pope's "Pioneers
of Massachusetts.") Roger Williams died about

September 13, 1819. There he lived with his par-
ents and attended school until eleven years old,
w ben he w : ent to live with a farmer a few miles
from his home, receiving for his work the first
year his board, the sum of eleven dollars, and time
enough off to go to school during the brief winter
terms then in vogue. He was well liked by his
employer and continued with him until he was six-

•teen years old, receiving each year a small advance
111 wages. He left the farm to take a position as
clerk in a grocery store in Providence. When he
became of age five years later he attended school
at the old Uxbridge Academy for a year, having
earned and saved the money for his expenses while
at work in Providence. He was a diligent student,
and with characteristic energy and industry em-
ployed his time in a profitable manner outside of
school hours. In company with a fellow student
of his own age he hired a piece of land from which
they raised a large crop of produce which they
sold to advantage. At the end of the school term
he remained in Uxbridge and worked lor three
years for the Uxbridge Woolen Company. He then
returned to Providence and bought out the grocery-
business of his former employer at the corner of
Charles and Randall streets, conducted it three
years with profit, and sold it to his advantage. He
accepted the position of bookkeeper at the Ux-
bridge Woolen Company's mill, and at the end of
six years was offered an interest in the business to>
remain. He entered the employ of Moses Taft
April 1, 1853, and superintended the building
and equipment of the Centreville Woolen Mill (now
the Calumet Mill), on the completion of which irr
the summer of 1853 he, in company with his brother-
in-law, Israel M. Southwick. hired the mill and
under the firm name of Southwick & Sayles com-
menced the manufacture of a fine grade of fancy
cassimere', which they continued sucessfully until
July 1. i85g. when they sold out to Bradford, Taft
& Company, of Providence, Rhode Island. Mr.
Sayles remained with the new firm as mill agent
and superintendent and Mr. Southwick as master
mechanic. The firm of Bradford. Taft & Co. was
succeeded by Taft. Weeden & Company. Mr.
Savles remained with the concern until January r.
1864. when he suffered a shock clue to overwork
during the war, when the mill was run day and

night on cloth for the government. After a partial
recovery from his illness Mr. Sayles leased the
Laurel Ridge Woden Mill, in the town of Burrill-
ville, Rhode Island, April I, 1864, and manufactured
satinet there. In company with his brother-in-law,
David A. McBride, he bought of Chandler Taft the
old Rivulet Mill property in the north part of Ux-
bridge. and they began the manufacture of shoddy,
supplying the Sayles Mill in Pascoag and Burrill-
ville, and also for the market. Mr. Sayles bought
out Mr. McBride's interest and sold it to Israel M.
Southwick, his former partner. Zadock A. Taft
succeeded to Mr. Southvvick's interests November
13, 1866, and the business continued under the firm
name of Sayles & Taft, manufacturing shoddy on
a more extensive scale. The firm leased the prop-
erty to E. S. Bradford & Company, of Providence,
in July, 1869. That firm was succeeded by Pierce
& Paine. The mill was destroyed by fire in Oc-
tober, 1872. In 1873 Sayles & Taft rebuilt the mill
and began to manufacture cotton warps and yarns,
but after a year changed to satinet machinery.
Henry S. Morse was admitted to the firm October
I. 1S78, and the name became Sayles, Taft & Com-
pany. Mr. Taft retired January 1, 1882. and the
name became Richard Sayles & Company. The
■success of Mr. Sayles in his mills is reflected in
the mill village, which was wonderfully improved
in every way after he bought the Rivulet Mill
property. He contributed liberally to the building
fund of the Baptist church and was himself chair-
man of the building committee, although personally
he was a Unitarian in belief. He was a Republican
in politics, and strongly in favor of a protective
tariff. He set a high standard of character and civic
virtue. He was kindly and democratic always in
his manner, and on terms of friendship with many
of his employees. He was a typical manufacturer
of the early days, self-educated and self-made. He
started in business with his own scanty savings as
capital, and worked his way persistently to the
front. He was one of the founders of Blackstone
Valley industries. He died May 23, 1887. He mar-
ried Sarah Eddy McBride, who was born at Bolton,
Massachusetts, October 14, 1822. Her parents were
of the Society of Friends, and resided at North-
bridge at the time of her marriage. She survived
him. Their children were: I. Herbert R., men-
tioned below. 2. Andrew J., mentioned below. 3.
John E.. resides at Uxbridge.

HERBERT R. SAYLES (8). son of Richard
Sayles 17). was born in the town of Northbridge,
Massachusetts, in 1847. Two years later his parents
removed to Uxbridge. where he attended the public
schools and the Uxbridge Academy, subsequently
graduating from Bryant & Stratton's Business Col-
