SECOND GENERATION AND CHILDREN

As an introduction to the second generation of Kewtons in ^Marlborough and
to prevent undue repetition of events in which all of the inhahitants were
engaged, it seems fitting that I here give some account of conditions that obtained
at, and subsequent to, the death of Richard Xewton. I shall then be understood
as I record the events in which the several persons were concerned, if I merely
refer back to this, and thus escape the multiplying of words.

In "Queen Anne's War" the French and Indians made repeated incursions
into the colony, killing and carrying away captive the inhabitants (1701-1713).

August 8, 1704, this occurred in that part of Marlborough now Westborough :
and again on the 18th of August, now the part that is INorthborough. The men
and their families were in constant anxiety and danger. To protect the people

CHILDREN OF RICHARD NEWTON 19

of Marlborough the General Court ruade some provision for their defense, and
the people had erected a considerable number of forts in different parts of the
township to which they could resort in time of danger. Twenty-six forts, or
"garrisons" and "garrison houses," as they were called, were designated and
the families residing nearest each were so assigned. I will set down here only
those garrisons that have to do with the Newtons and their relatives.

No. 5. Isaac Amsden's Garrison. It was southeasterly of the East Village,
on the road to Southborough. "Deacon Newton," Thomas Newton and five other
families.

No. 6. Isaac Howe's Garrison. It was on the Southborough road near the
now Newton Railway Station. Moses Newton, Moses Newton, Jr., John Newton.
Widow Johnson [nee Mary Kerley], David Fay and James Cady.

No. 15. Samuel Ward's Garrison. It was south of the meeting house. Jona-
than Johnson, Sr., William Ward, Widow Hannah Ward and Caleb Rice.

No. 16. John Mathews' Garrison. It was in what is now Southborough.
William Johnson and Samuel Ward.

No. 17. Daniel Rice's Garrison. It was two miles easterly of the meeting
house. Widow Sarah Taylor. I think this was widow of William.

No. 23. Simon Maynard's Garrison. It was on the "Indian Plantation."
Joseph Newton and four other families.

No. 24. John Newton, Jr.'s Garrison. It was in what is now Southborough.
Eleazer Bellows, James Eager, James Newton, Benjamin Newton, Ephraim New-
ton, John Woods and Abraham Newton.

No. 25. Jonathan Newton's Garrison. It was in what is now Southborough.
Moses Leonard (m. Mercy Newton) and four other families.

As near as can be learned from tradition, this was the general location of the
garrisons in 1711, and thus we learn the neighborhoods in which the different
families resided.

In 1701 the town and church at Marlborough had the misfortune to lose their
minister, Rev. William Brimstead, who died on July 3 of that year. After his
decease an unfortunate misunderstanding arose that greatly disturbed the town.
It took the form at last in an opposition to the settlement of Rev. John Emer-
son of Ipswich to become their minister. The papers connected with this con-
troversy have been preserved, but fail to show the grounds of opposition. The
feeling was probably both personal and sectional. Whatever the trouble was,
we are indebted to it for two lists of men, which must have comprised nearly
all in the town at the beginning of the eighteenth century. Those who voted in
favor of Mr. Emerson were mostly from the west and those opposed to his
settlement were from the east part of the town. I will set down here only those
we are interested, more nearly, in. Among those to sustain, were the names of
James Taylor, Sr., Joseph Newton, Jr., and his son Joseph Newton [b. 1699, d.
1713, the only third Joseph there was at that date].

Among those opposed were: John Newton 2 , Sr., and his sons John 3 , Jr.,
Zachariah 3 , Thomas 3 , and John 4 (son of John 3 , Jr.) ; Moses Newton 2 , Sr., and
his sons David 3 and Edward 3 ; Daniel Newton, Joseph Newton, Sr., James Tay-
lor 1 and his son James 2 , Jr., and Jonathan Johnson.

November 19, 1717, Westborough was set off as a town. Twenty-five families
and six young men were so set off. Among them were Josiah Newton 3 (son of
Moses 2 ), Thomas Newton 3 (son of John 2 ).

i October 20, 1744, Westborough was divided, the northern part taking the
name of Northborough.

The Indian Plantation of 6,000 acres was annexed to Marlborough in 1719,
thus restoring its depleted size.

The people of "Stony Brook," as the south part of Mailborough was called,
applied to the town to be set off as a distinct municipality. After some delay



20 NEWTON GENEALOGY

a line was agreed upon, and the town joined in a petition "with the Stony
Brook men for a confirmation of said township." The territory was set off
and incorporated in 1727 by the name of Southborough. Six of the Newtons
signed the petition, and they and several other prominent families were cut
off with their lands from the old town into the new town. And not only that,
but also a change of county has-been made — Marlborough being in Middlesex
County, and Southborough in Worcester County. Thus Southborough became
the home town of the Newtons of this branch of the family, where Richard and
his wife died and their deaths are recorded. Where they were buried is unknown
to me, but I suppose the interment was in the "Old Common Burial Ground"
in Marlborough.

In the French and Indian Wars, before 1757 — from 1744-1756, inclusive,
Marlborough men had seen service both at home and abroad. But the rolls
are said to have been sent to England as vouchers, so no lists of the men are
found here. Many of them, however, are known to have served. Among them
were the following Newtons : In 1748, Gershom Newton 5 , Jr., and Timothy New-
ton 5 (sons of Gershom 4 , Sr.) ; in 1754 Timothy 5 again; in 1756 Gershom 5 ,
Jr., again, and in the same year (1756) under Captain William Williams, at No.
4, Jonas Newton 4 (son of Jesseniah 3 ), and this Jonas Newton 4 was out again
in the same company in 1760 ; also Archelaus Felton at No. 4, 1756, and in 1760.

In 1757 two companies from Marlborough marched to the relief of Tort Wil-
liam Henry. In that of Lieutenant Stephen Maynard was Micah Newton 4
(son of Joseph 3 , Jr.), again.

In 1758 and 1759, on the rolls for the reduction of Canada, are the names,
among many others from Marlborough, of Daniel Newton 4 (son of Daniel 3 )
and John Newton 5 (son of John 4 ).

February 5, 1737, certain gentlemen in the easterly part of the town were
desirous of being set off as a separate town and sent in a petition asking that
they have returned to them "the money that we shall pay toward the settlement
or gratuity of the minister" if they should be set off within three or seven years.
Among the fourteen men who signed the petition were Uriah Newton 4 (son of
Joseph 3 , Jr.) and Nahum Newton 4 (son of Joseph 3 , Jr.). The petition was not
granted as to a division of that part of the town.

In 1757 (and before), on account of the "French and Indian Wars," the Gen-
eral Court required the whole people to be organized — the able-bodied for active
and more distant service, the older and those exempt from other causes on an
"Alarm List." In that year two large companies were organized in Marlborough,
to each of which was attached a list of alarm men. In Captain John Weeks'
company was Sergeant Micah Newton 4 (son of Joseph 3 , Jr.), Uriah 4 (son of
Joseph 3 , Jr.), Uriah 5 (son of Uriah 4 ), David Newton 5 (son of Uriah 4 ), and in
the Alarm List of this company was William Newton 4 (son of Daniel 3 ). In
the other company under Colonel Abraham Williams was Caleb Newton 5 (son
of Jonathan 4 , Jr.).*



* Warnings. — The custom of "warning out of town" prevailed throughout the Province.
When a person not an inhabitant came to town to reside, sometimes only for an extended visit,
the person into whose family or tenement he came, was required to give notice to the Select-
men, of the name of the person or persons, the place he came from, his pecuniary circum-
stances and the time be came to town. Knowing these facts, the town authorities would in
their discretion let them remain or order them to be warned out of town. The object of
this was to prevent their gaining a settlement and becoming a public charge. No regard was
paid to age, character or sex so far as the notice of coming was concerned ; but in the
warning, or "cautioning," a discretion was used.

There was a formality in the process of "warning out of town" which will appear in the
following example.

"Middlesex, ss.
To Mr. Joseph Hoicc, Jr., Constable for the Town of Marlborough, in said County; Greeting:

In his Majesty's name you are hereby required forthwith to warn the several persons here-
after mentioned, forthwith to depart out of the town of Marlborough, viz., Abraham Carly and



CHILDREN OF RICHARD NEWTON oj

2. JOHN NEWTON 2 , SR. (Kichard 1 ), son of Richard and Anne (Loker)
Newton of Sudbury and Marlborough, Mass., was born at Sudbury, October 20,
1641, and died at Marlborough, October 16, 1723, aged 82.

He married at Marlborough, January or June 5, 1666, Elizabeth Larkin, daugh-
ter of Edward and Joanna ( — ) Larkin* of Charlestown, Mass., where

she was born 5-7-1641, and died at Marlborough, October 15, 1719.

John Newton, Sr., was a proprietor in Marlborough in 1660. November 26
of that year the inhabitants laid out their house-lots. John, with his father, had
been in the township two or three years previous to this division, which was
rather a confirmation than an original grant. His house-lot comprised sixteen
acres.

In 1664 there appears to have been a disturbance in the civil and ecclesiasti-
cal relations of the town, in the perfecting or forfeiture of the titles to the
several house-lots — grants for taxes — time for payment of rates, etc. Seventeen
of the inhabitants asked the General Court to appoint a committee with full
power to settle all their difficulties. John Newton and his father were among
those opposed to the appointment of a committee, alleging: "We are willing,
with our persons and estates, to uphold the Authority of the Country, and do
therefore desire the liberty of the law which gives towns power to transact
their own affairs."

John Newton, Sr., could claim all the rights in the lands of the town, as a
proprietor, that went with sixteen acres. At the same time he did not share
in the second division of upland. Against his name in that division are the
words "none due."

Of the first division of meadows, eight acres; second division of meadows,
six and one-fourth acres, 24 rods; of Cedar Swamp eight acres; equal to 22|
acres 24 rods. He did not share in Cold Harbour, Middle and Chauncey Meadows,
as did his father. Of course at this time, 1663-)- he was a young man just com-
ing of age. His rate for the minister was 6 shillings 8 pence. John Newton's
name is not among those who got the deed of the Indians, for the Indian
Plantation, in 1684.

During the Indian troubles that ended in 1713 his family was assigned to
No. 6, Isaac Howe's Garrison, on the Southborough Road.

Susanna his wife, and their children, viz., Mary, Moses, Joel, Martha and Job ; David Flint ;
Amaziah Knight and Jane his wife ; Mrs. Abigail Arbuthnot, and Martha Parmenter. And
to make inquiry into their circumstances, and from whence they last came to this town :

Hereof fail not, and make return of this warrant, with your doings thereon, as soon as
may be, unto the Select-men."

22 NEWTON GENEALOGY

1688. Taxes under Governor Andros. John Newton, Sr.'s rate was, "for
persons and estate," £00-11-05. [More than one poll.]

By the will of his father, John Newton, Sr., received the greater part of the
lands granted to Richard Newton, together with their rights of commonage, and
in the undivided lands; and also the homestead, tools, cattle, swine, etc., which,
with his own property, must have been quite an estate for those times. Besides
being a farmer, his father styles him "house carpenter." It was customary for
a man to have some trade, as well as land. All were farmers.

While John Newton, Sr., appears to be a residuary legatee, his younger brother,
Joseph Newton, Sr., was made one of the executors of their father's will, and
not himself.

John Newton, Sr., made his will four years before his death. His wife was
living at the time, but he makes no mention of her. She died the same year,
aged 78. Neither does he mention his son Nathaniel and daughter Experience.
He makes his grandson, Gershom Newton (son of his son Samuel 2 ), residuary
legatee and sole executor; and Gershom, with his uncle, John Newton, Jr., gives
bond in £100 each, for the- performance of the trust. In his will, John Newton,
Sr., signs with his mark. In his bond as surety for his son Samuel, he signs his
own name. This last-named bond you will find under Samuel's heading, and
it explains itself.

In the bond here given, Gershom signs for himself and John, Jr., signs with
his mark. It seemed to be immaterial in those clays which way a person signed.

John Newton 2 , Sr., and his brother Moses 2 were made freemen April 18, 1690.

The following deeds, given by John Newton, Sr., are selected for abstracting
because they show the disposition he made of his lands, provided for some of
those dependent on him and provided for the care of himself during his old
age.
