1495. AARON NEWTON 4 (Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Moses and
Sarah (How) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there, September 7, 1707,
and died .

"He was living in the North Parish of Shrewsbury in 1760, and died before
1769." His will was allowed July 7, 1777.

He married at Marlborough, Mass., January 28, 1729, Eunice Newton (225),
daughter of John 3 and Hannah (Morse) Newton of Marlborough (No. 11), where
sbe was born September 1, 1709. She died after 1777, as per his will.

In 1729 Aaron Newton and wife Eunice were living in Shrewsbury on House
Lot No. 17, the lot of fifty-nine acres granted to his father, December 30, 1718.
It was in the possession of Aaron Newton, January 31, 1729. [Its bounds are
described under Moses Newton 3 , his father], and he seems to have moved to it
and settled there at date of his marriage. Other lands in Shrewsbury were laid
out at divers times in right of the several House Lots, and to Aaron Newton
a portion, in 1744, in right of 17th House Lot. ■ In 1765 his brother Elisha also
had lands granted by Shrewsbury in right of the 17th House Lot, as had also
Eli Keyes, Jr. Aaron Newton was, perhaps, set off to Lancaster in 1768. His
children were born in Shrewsbury.

In 1760 Aaron Newton, Edward Newton, with seven other men, were appointed
highway surveyors, and Aaron to repair certain other roads.

In 1761 the town refunded, with interest, the amounts persons were taxed too
much on their money in the years 1758 and 1759, and Aaron Newton, having been
thus taxed in 1758, £00. 10s. lid., was refunded 2s. 2d.; taxed in 1759, £00. lis.
10d., was refunded 2s. 6d.

There is mentioned in the History of Holden, Mass., the names of "Aaron
Newton/' "Widow Newton." In his will he is described as Aaron Newton of
Holden. It is stated that the town of Holden was taken wholly from the original
town of Worcester and incorporated in 1741. In 1804 and 1808 portions of it
were annexed to Paxton and West Boylston. In 1831 and 183S further changes
occurred in the bounds between Holden and Paxton. How and when he became a
citizen of Holden is unknown to me; but there it was, in 1777, that his estate
was settled. As he bad no sons this is the end of his line of the Newton name.

The name of Aaron Newton of Shrewsbury and that of Isaac Newton of
Southborough are on the lists of the Partners in the Land Bank scheme of 1740 —
both as having paid assessments. Uriah Newton of Marlborough was also a
partner. Another, Aaron Newton of East own (I cannot place him), was also one
of the partners.

She may have died soon after birth, and probably did die before the will
was made, which gives "to grandson Thaddeus Raymond. £4." This would
indicate that she had married a Raymond. Her niece. Eunice 8 Glazier.
had married, 1768, William Raymond, Jr., as above, and the term "grand-
son" would apply to a child of hers as well.



1498. AMOS NEWTON 4 , SK. (Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Eichard 1 ), son of Moses, Jr.,
and Sarah (How) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there April 16, 1714,
and died at Southborough, Mass., May 18, 1795, C. E.

He married his second cousin (the date and place of marriage unknown),
Azubah Newton (4749):}:, daughter of Ephraim 3 and Christian (Eipley) Newton
of Marlborough-Southborough, and Leicester, Mass. She was born in Marl-
borough, April 1, 1713, and died at Southborough November 9, 1776, "wife of
Amos Newton, Sen." In the administration of her father's estate, Amos Newton 4 ,
Sr., was appointed administrator and declined to serve. Her brother Nahum
also declining to serve, declares : "I hereby certifie that Amos Newton of Soutb-
borough, who married the eldest daughter of Ephraim Newton, late of Leicester."

* Jonas Ward 1 . Jr.. was perhaps son of Jonas Ward 3 from Worcester to Shrewsbury, sen
of Richard (Obediah 2 , William* of Sudbury in 1G30). They lived in the North Tarish of

etc. [see Ephraim, No. 157.] While Azubah was not the "eldest daughter" born
to her father, she was probably the eldest then (1761) living. This proves who the
mother, "Azubah," of Anios's children was. The will of Mary 4 , daughter of
Ephraim 3 , gives to "sister Azubah Newton," earrings; "to brother-in-law Amos
Newton 4 ," all residue of estate and appoints him executor.

He married (2) at Southborough, February 5, 1778, Thankful Bellows, daugh-
ter of James and Thankful ( ) Bellows*, of Hopkinton and Southborough,

Mass., born at Southborough, May 14, 1734, died there November 7, 1807.
Abstract of her will follows :

1807. Thankful Newton, Southborough. 43442 A.

Will filed December 1, 1S07. Gives to

Betsey Trice, daughter of Lot Price, furniture.

To Susannah Leonard Clothing

To Carrie Newton, wife of Charles Newton, $10.

To Amos Hodgman, son of Ebenezer Hodgman, Silver buckles.

To Joanna Bond, wife of William Bond. Clothing.

To Sally Leonard, daughter of Solomon Leonard, Clothing.

To her brother James Bellows, residue.

Appoints Abner Parker, Executor.

The mention of her brother, James Bellows, and the above near relatives, indi-
cate which Thankful Bellows she was. In the will of her husband, Amos New-
ton, she is given only certain household goods. She had probably been provided
for during his lifetime. No children.

Amos Newton, Sr., lived in that part of Marlborough that became South-
borough, and his children were all born in the latter town. He is styled "Sen."
probably to distinguish him from the son of John Newton of the same town,
who is "Amos, Jr." In 1790 (U. S. Census), his family comprised himself as
head, one male below sixteen years, and two females.

An abstract of the will of Amos Newton 4 , Sr., follows :

Southborough." Mr. Newton continued to reside in Southborough, where his

BRANCH OF MOSES 201

Edward Newton 4 was about three and one-half years old when his father died.
In 1709, his mother married again. She having been made guardian of the
children, and administratrix of their father's estate, cared for them and it until
she was discharged by the Court, and the property was turned over to the chil-
dren. [See the papers concerning settlement of estate of Edward 3 .] This would
indicate that he had something to start with when he became of age; and he
married soon afterward. The family probably lived in Hopkinton awhile and
then moved to Shrewsbury about the beginning of 1727 or before. The births of
four of his children are recorded there on the town records, and two were bap-
tized there. Edward and his wife were admitted to the church at Shrewsbury in
1736 — they lived in the North Province of the town — and were dismissed in 17-14
from that church to form a church in the west part of Lancaster.

In 1768 the families of Edward 4 and his sons Samuel 3 and Edward 5 , Jr., were
set off to the town of Lancaster.

The will of Edward Newton 4 is dated October 18, 1765, in which he mentions
his wife Elizabeth, sons Edward, Jr., and Ezekiel, and daughters Martha New-
ton, Mary, wife of Daniel Perry, and Esther, wife of John Britton.

He died before the end of the year 1765, since his will was probated that
year, and the estate settled at Shrewsbury. Case in Probate Court, No. 43,111.
This would be before he was set off to Lancaster as above.

Mr. Newton lived in Southborough. His thirteen children were born there.
He is mentioned in the will of his father as one of the children to whom had
been given his "full portion in time past," and was to receive only one shilling
more, in silver money. There is no probate settlement of his estate. That he
owned land in Southborough is shown in a deed given by him October 8, 1773,
to Ezra Newton 5 , his son, conveying ten acres for 26 pounds, 13 shillings, 4 pence.
Also another deed in which his land bounded with that of Joseph Arnold. See
Ezra Newton 5 , his son.
