NEWTON GENEALOGY



1804. EZEKIEL NEWTON 5 (Edward 4 , Edward 3 , Moses 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of
Edward and Elizabeth (Allen) Newton of Marlborough and Shrewsbury and
Lancaster, Mass., was born at Hopkinton, Mass., October 13, 1725, and died at
Lancaster [before Sept. 7], 1779.

He married at Lancaster, Mass., June 21, 1749, by Kev. John Mellon, "Dorothy
Osgood, Jun., of Lancaster," daughter [perhaps, of David and Eunice (Carter)
Osgood* of Lancaster, who were married there November 3, 1724]. She sur-
vived her husband and was appointed administratrix of his estate, and was liv-
ing June 5, 1780, when the last account was allowed.

Ezekiel Newton and his wife were admitted to communion in the Second Con-
gregational Church in Lancaster, Mass., September 2, 1750, at which time their
daughter Dorothy was baptized. The family appear to have lived in Shrewsbury,
where their children were born, but to have identified themselves with the town
and church at Lancaster, where all of their children were baptized, a short time
after birth, in each case. His lands probably lay in the North Province of
Shrewsbury, which was set off to Lancaster in 1768.

He was a farmer in Lancaster, owning his farm of fifty-one acres. He left
no will and the estate was settled by the court as usual in such cases. A list
of the papers and abstract of administration follows. [Perhaps his widow,
Dorothy, married again, see Dorothy Newton:}: footnote below.]

2192. i. Dorothy 6 , b. March 28, 1750 ; bapt. Sept. 2, 1750 ; m. at Lancaster, April 8,
1772, David Goodale, "both of Lancaster." He was son of Nathan and
Persis (Whitney) Goodale§ of Marlborough, where he was born Aug. 14,

* Notice that Dorothy Osgood above is styled "Jun." There were two others of the name,
Dorothy, who m. 1757, at Lancaster, Josiah Whitcomb, and Dorothy, who m. 17G6, Phineas
Ward. It does not follow that her mother was Dorothy, since it was the custom to desig-
nate older and younger cousins as "Sen." and "Jun." Besides this David and Eunice Osgood
living at Lancaster, there was also Joseph and Katherine (Wetherby) Osgood (m. May 12,
1726), and Aaron and Eunice (White) Osgood (m. May 15, 1729). Any one of these three
couples might have been the parents of "Dorothy Osgood, Jun." The early Lancaster records
were destroyed.

± The Lincoln Genealogy, p. 41, has the following statement : Enoch Goodale of Oakham,
Mass., married Dorothy Newton. They had a son, Enoch Goodale, Jr., born Nov. 6, 1786, at
West Boylston, Mass., who died in Saco, Maine, March 4, 1874 ; m. Lucy Lincoln, who was
born at Oakham, Mass., and died at Saco, Maine. I have thought this might be Dorothy,
widow of Ezekiel Newton 6 .

§ Robert Goodale, in his 31st year, embarked at Ipswich, England, with his wife, Kath-
erine, in her 29th year, April, 1634. They brought with them three children ; they settled

at and had five more children. The first born (perhaps first) in this country was

Zachariah 2 , b. 1639, who m. Eliza Berchaji and had in Salem, Mass., eleven children. One
was

Jons, Goodale 3 , b. 1679 ; d. 1752 ; m. 1703, Elizabeth Witt, who d. 1738 ; m. (2)

Elizabeth , who survived him. They came to Marlborough about 1702 and had there

three children : Solomon*, 1707 ; m. Anna, and moved to Brookfield ; Nathan*, b. June
10, 1709; Elizabeth*, b. 1715; m. 1733, Joseph Goodale?

Nathan Goodale 4 (s. John 3 ), b. 1709; d. at Marlborough Jan. 14, 1780; m. Persis
Whitney, dau. of Benjamin. They had thirteen children. The oldest was Nathan 5 , who m.

1805. SAMUEL NEWTON 5 (Edward*, Edward 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Edward and Elizabeth (Allen) Newton of Marlborough, Hopkinton, Shrewsbury
and Lancaster, Mass., was born at Shrewsbury, November 5, 1727, and died at
Shrewsbury, September 28, 1756.

He married at Lancaster, Mass., by Rev. John Williams, December 18 or 19,
1751, Sarah Douglas. [Perhaps she was the Sarah Newton who married in
Shrewsbury, in 1762, Solomon Bigelow and had there three children: Barna,
1762; Silas, 1764; Silas, 1766.]

Samuel Newton 5 moved to Shrewsbury and settled. His lands were set off
to Lancaster in 1768 ; thus he died in Shrewsbury, where two children were born
to him, Samuel 6 and Elijah 6 .

2200. i. Samuel 6 , b. Aug. 2, 1752. [I am not sure of anything further in regard to this

Samuel Newton. I shall give such facts as I have gathered and what I
suppose about them. Some one may be able to explain if I am wrong. I
suppose he married at Westborough, May 25, 1783, Abigail Warren, dau.
of Thaddeus and Abigail (Whipple) Warren of Westborough, where she
was born Feb. 11, 1760. They probably lived in Lancaster and had chil-
dren there, then moved to Weathersfield, Vt., where the First United States
Census in 1790 found him head of a household consisting of, besides him-
self, one male above sixteen years, five males under sixteen years, and four
females. I suppose that one of his sons was

drowned in Sandy Pond in Lancaster, Mass., April 18, 1815, by the

record of the event from the History of Clinton, Mass. : "Samuel
Newton, in 1815, a young man of 27, married and wife living, drowned
in the night while spearing fish." That his wife was the Miriam
Newton who administered on his estate, would appear from the following
abstract of administration.]

2203. ii. Elijah , b. March 13, 1754. [In the same fashion as with his brother
Samuel , I am sure of only the birth. I suppose he married and removed
to Weathersfield, Vt., where he was enumerated in the same Census of 1790,
his family besides himself consisting of two males under sixteen years and
two females. One reason I think these two brothers are the men in
Weathersfield, Vt., is because it is known that their uncle, Capt. Edward
Newton, removed to that town, from Lancaster, and is enumerated at
Weathersfield, Vt., in 1790.]

The following may be the Revolutionary service of this Elijah Newton
(or of another one) : "Newton. Elijah. Hubbardston. Private, Capt.

Aug. 9, 1781, discharged Oct. 3, 1781, service 2 m. 5 d. including 10 days
(200 miles) travel home. Resides in and engaged for Hubbardston.
Regiment raised for 3 months. As also of the previous service, 1778 in
Capt. Marean's Co."



1812. CAPTAIN" EDWARD NEWTON 5 (Edward 4 , Edward 3 , Moses 2 , Rich-
ard 1 ), son of Edward and Elizabeth (Allen) Newton of Marlborough, Hopkin-
ton, Shrewsbury and Lancaster, Mass., was born at Shrewsbury, January 18 or
23, 1738, and died probably at Weathersfield, Vt, February 28, 1819.

He married at Worcester, Mass., February 7, 1760, Sarah Winch, daughter of
David and Naomi (Gibbs) Winch* of Framingham and Shrewsbury. She was
born at Framingham, July 12, or 23, 1735, and died (probably at Weathersfield)
July 3, 1807.

He married (2) Betty , who was born June 6, 1766.

Mr. Newton resided in Shrewsbury, Mass., until after the birth of his fourth
child. On the records there, he is styled "Edward, Jun." at the birth of the
first three children. In 1767 the "Jun." is omitted. The inference is that his
father had died between the two dates, which was the fact. In 1768, he and his
father with their lands were set off to Lancaster, where his remaining children
were born.

The Records of the Second or West Precinct Church at Lancaster open with the
usual covenant. Among the eighteen subscribers is the name of Edward Newton.
April 27, 1760, he is dismissed and recommended to the Second Church at Shrews-
bury.

Capt. Edward Newton was an officer in the Revolutionary Army. His service
covered the entire period of that war. An abstract of service follows : "Newton.
Edward. Lancaster. Ensign, Capt. Samuel Robinson's Company of Militia, Col.
Asa Whitcomb's regt., marched on alarm April 19, 1775 to Cambridge, returned
May 1, 1775, served 14 days. . . . also First Lieut, Capt. Fortunatus Eager's
(7th) Co., Col. Josiah Whitney's (2nd Worcester County) regt. of Mass. Militia;
list of officers to be Commissioned as returned by Lieut. Col. Ephraim Sawyer
and Major Silas Bailey, dated Lancaster, March 18, 1776. . . . Reported Com-
missioned March 20, 1776; also. First Lieut., Capt. Solomon Stuarts Company,
Col. Josiah Whitney's Regt. ; . . . other services — Bennington, Northern Army,
ect. ; also. Captain of Seventh Company, Col. Whitney's regt. (2nd Worcester
County) Mass. Militia, Commissioned April 12, 1780." [From Mass. Soldiers
and Sailors of the Revolutionary War.]

The Massachusetts Archives, Vol. 13, page 77, contain the Revolutionary
services of Capt. Edward Newton.

After the war was over, the family are quite sure that Capt. Edward Newton
lived in Weathersfield, Vt. The First United States Census, 1790, gives his
family there as consisting of two males above sixteen years, two males below
sixteen years, and three females. Edward Newton was one of a "Committee of
six to supply the families of those who are gone to the Continental Army." The
town so voted October 26, 1778. [Military Annals of Lancaster.]

1823. EZKA NEWTON 3 (Jonathan 4 , Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of

Jonathan, Jr., and Tabitha ( ) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was born

there July 29, 1740, and died there October 16, 1803.

He married at Southborough, January 8, 1760, Elizabeth Hager. Who she
was is unknown to me.

Mr. Newton was a farmer in Southborough — his lands being in the northern
part of the town; he seems to have obtained by purchase at various times from
different people, as the deeds show. This property remained in the possession
of his descendants until 1896, when it was purchased by the Boston Water
Board, to become a part of its great reservoir.

Before his death he executed a deed giving all of his real estate to his son
Caleb ; but the deed was not registered until after his death.

He was a soldier of the Revolution — a minuteman on the first alarm. An
abstract of his service is here given: "Ezra Newton. Southborough. Corporal
in Capt. Elijah Bellows' Company, marched on Alarm April 19, 1775, to Lex-
ington, served 15 days. Also. In Capt. Seth Newton's Company, Col. Whitney's
regiment, enlisted August 21, 1777, discharged August 26, or 27, 1777, served
six days on Alarm at Bennington, Vt. ; Company proceeded from Southborough
to Hadley on horses; by order of the Brigadier; horse and milage (80 miles)
allowed home."

His children were born in Southborough. He was head of a household there
according to the First United States Census, 1790. The other members of it
were one male above sixteen years and two females.

Some ancient deeds in possession of Mrs. Sophia Newton, widow of Lincoln,
are described by Mrs. E. C. Temple :

"Deed given by Abraham Amsden and Hannah his wife the 26 day of August,
1769, to Ezra Newton of Southborough, Mass., conveys 40 acres, one of the bounds
being stake and stone at Castle Hill [Elijah Bellows' land]. Price, £105. 9s. 4d.

He married at Southborough, January 3, 1805 [T. R.], Relief Newton, daugh-
ter of Silas 5 and Lovina 5 (Newton) Newton of Southborough, where she was born
May 22, 1783. After the death of Mi'. Newton she married in succession, Wil-
liam Annetts of Framingham, Josiah Lawrence of Lancaster, and "James Mal-
lard, who survived her." [See her number, 2321.] Her three children were born
at Southborough.

Elijah Newton was a soldier of the Revolution. I suppose the following to be
an abstract of his service: "Elijah Newton, Sergeant, Capt. Adam Henry's Com-
pany of Guards. Engaged Jan. 7, 1779; discharged April 6 (also 1) 1779; Com-
pany detached from militia to guard troops of Convention at Rutland for three
months from Jan. 1, 1779. Also. Elijah Newton, Spencer, in Capt. Jonathan
Carriel's Co., Col. Josiah Whitney's regt." ,

At date of the First United States Census, 1790, Elijah Newton was head of
a family consisting of himself and two females in Southborough. The females
may have been his widowed mother and a sister.

1828. REUBEN NEWTON 5 (Jonathan*, Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son

of Jonathan, Jr., and Tabitha ( ) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was

born there April 16, 1747, and died there September 13, 1827, aged 80. C. R.

He married at Southborough, June 24, 1784, Sarah Brewer, daughter of Peter
and Elizabeth (Pratt) Brewer* of Southborough, where she was born December
18, 1760. I suppose the mention, "Sarah Newton, Nov. 9, 1837," at Southbor-
ough, to be- a record of her death. She was living in 1832. See will below.

Mr. Newton resided in Southborough. His children were born there. The
Eirst United States Census, 1790, shows Reuben Newton at Southborough, head
of a family, which besides himself consisted of two males under sixteen years,
and two females. He was a soldier of the Revolution. Abstract of service
reads : "Reuben Newton. Southboro. Private, Capt. Elijah Bellows Company,
marched April 19, 1775, served 16 days. Also in Capt. Seth Newton's Company,
Col. Whitney's regiment, engaged Aug. 26, (27) 1777. Six days service on Alarm
at Bennington. Company on horses from Southboro to Hadley." Other service.

His estate was administered without a will, in 1827, at Southborough. Case
