10. ISAAC NEWTON 2 (Richard 1 ), son of Richard and Anne (Loker) New-
ton from England and of Sudbury, Mass., was probably born either at Sudbury
or Marlborough between the years 1650 and 1660. He died at Marlborough,
Mass., August 12, 1685.

He married Rebecca — , who became his widow in August, and the birth

of her child occurred four months afterward, December, 1685. It is supposed,
and with reason for it, that the following record of marriage with her late
husband's nephew is her second matrimonial venture, that is: Samuel Newton n
(son of John 2 ) and Rebecca Newton, both of Marlborough, were married at
Concord, September 8, 1688, by Mr. Edward Bulkely, minister of Concord. At
that date there was no other adult Rebecca Newton in Marlborough. By this
marriage, two children were born, who seem to have been brought up by their

* For Taylor, see Sarah Newton 2 .



CHILDREN OF RICHARD NEWTON 57

grandfather, John Newton, 2 Sr. (as they, surely were provided for by his will),
and their father and mother probably were given a legal separation. [See docu-
ments under Samuel Newton. 3 ]

Rebecca Newton married again, before 1698, Philip Pratt of Framingham,
by whom she had two sons, namely: Jeremiah Pratt, born December 12, 1698,
and Philip Pratt, Jr., born September 10, 1701, both born at Framingham.

Mrs. Rebecca Pratt probably was personal guardian of her daughter, Rebecca
Newton, during her childhood. Jonathan Johnson, Jr., nephew of Isaac Newton,
was made her legal guardian March 22, 1704, and rendered account of his
guardianship to the Court and to her November 26, 1706, Rebecca Newton
being present.

The quit claim of Rebecca Pratt and Philip Pratt to her daughter explains
itself. Rebecca Pratt died at Framingham September 3, 1728. Philip Pratt died
there February 12, 1739.

I cannot find that Isaac Newton 2 received grants of land from the town at
any time. This leads me to think he was much younger than his brothers.
What lands he had seem to have come to him by gift and purchase. His
father gave him seven acres, as mentioned below; which seven acres with three
acres more acquired later is probably the land Richard Newton mentions in his
will as the westward boundary of the land he wills to his son John 2 ; with this
ten acres would go the "10 acre right in Marlborough," mentioned in Jonathan
Johnson, Jr.'s account. In the same account "The Indian Lott 30 acres," would
represent the share he obtained through the illegal deed from the Indians, in
1684, of their plantation. See page 8.

Thus the real estate that he desired to have go to "his child if it lived," would
be: 10 acres at home with house and barns; 10 acres south of Stony brook;
30 acres Indian lot = 50 acres, and the 10 acre right in Marlborough.

That Isaac Newton 2 died at Marlborough is evident from the fact that his
nuncupative will is attested by his wife and by his sister. He probably died in
his own home, although the records do not show it.

His posthumous daughter was born at Concord. The record there clearly
gives her parents, "daughter of Isaack Newton (deceased)." From this birth in
Concord, and the marriage above occurring there, I have thought Concord may
have been the native town of Isaac Newton's wife. We lack her maiden name,
therefore cannot trace.

60 NEWTON GENEALOGY



THIRD GENERATION AND CHILDREN

11. JOHN NEWTON 3 , JR. (John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of John and Elizabeth
(Larkin) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was horn there, June 5, 1667, and
died in Southborough, Mass., January 27, 1754, when he in turn is called, "Sen."

He married in Marlborough, June 19, 1690 [T. R.], Hannah Morse [Mors.]
daughter of Joseph and Susanna (Shattuck) Morse* of Watertown and Groton,
Mass., born in Groton, April 7, 1674, died in Marlborough, September 10, 1732.

John Newton, Jr., lived in Marlborough. His children were born there. In
the Indian troubles following King Philip's War, his house was made one of
the twenty-six ''garrisons," No. 24; and to it were assigned the families of
Eleazer Bellows, James Eager, James Newton, Benjamin Newton, Ephraim
Newton, John Woods and Abraham Newton. The inference is that these
families lived nearest to his garrison-house and could the more quickly gain
refuge. No. 24 and No. 25 garrisons were in what is now Southborough.

John Newton, Jr., with his father, was opposed to the settlement of Rev. John
Emerson in the Church at Marlborough, 1702.

John Newton, Jr., mentioned in his father's will, is given: "Item. I will to
my son John Newton all my Rights to undivided lands In that tract of land in
the Township of Marlboro, called without Cow-Comon land, to him & his
forever." John, Jr., gives bond with Gershom Newton, the legatee and executor
of the will, each £100; and John, Jr., signs with his mark. See will of John
Newton, Sr., and the abstracts of deeds by which he conveys to this son about
125 acres, more or less. It was the custom in those times to give the eldest son
a double portion in his father's estate, and it would appear that John, Jr., was
not an exception to the rule.

In the following deed the three Newtons bearing the name of John, who were
adults of this branch, are all mentioned. And the one we are considering calls
himself not John, Jr., as we now naturally would, but names his father John
"sen r ," himself John "Secundus" (2d), and his son John "Jun r ."

His father having died in 1723, at the age of 82, it was probably John Newton
"Secundus" who was one of the petitioners for the incorporation of South-
borough — which became a town in 1727.

We must not confuse the John Newton "out of Boston" with those of this
branch.

house and lands. His will, dated 24th day, 2d month, 1646, planter, probated at Ipswich,

Eng., April, 1634, in the ship Elizabeth, Wm. Andrews, master. His name is on the earliest
list of proprietors of Watertown, Mass., and he was admitted freeman May 6, 1635. He died
March 4, 1690-1, and his estate was administered by his son John 3 . He married Hester
Pierce, dau. of John and Elizabeth Pierce of Watertown. The names of five of their children
are recorded in Watertown ; the- others are not recorded. Children were : Joseph 3 , 1637 ;
John 3 , 1639; Jonathan 3 (buried 1643); Jonathan 3 , 1643; Hester"*, 1646; Sarah 3 , 1669;

§ John Fames, with wife Mary [ADAMS, as given], were in Watertown, Mass., where a dau.,
Margaret 3 , was horn in Oct. and died in Nov., 1666. Soon after this he sold land in Water-
town to William Price. The next I find is: John Eames and wife Mary had a dau. Martha',
horn Feb. 28, 1678, in Sherborn, Mass. He seems to have settled in Sherborn, where his wife.
Mary, died April 3, 1681, in Sherborn. John Eames m. (2) in Sherborn. May 11, 1082.
Eizabeth Eames. They had there six children and she died there June 26, 1727. Their

1696-7 ; neurit, b. April 28, 1698, who m. Ruth Newton* (202) ; Abigail, 1705.

Robert Fames of Marlborough, whose wife was Anna , I suppose was the lather of

the above John Eames, of Watertown, Sherborn and Framingham. His will, dated 1771, and
proved 1780. He died March 3, 1780. He mentions wf. Anna, sons Samuel, Robert, b. 1738,
James, John, Ebenezer, dau. Anna, Elizabeth and Mary. He was the ancestor of the Marl-
o rough Eameses and a relative of Gersbom Eames of Marlborough and Watertown.
