children. All of his children were born in Marlborough, where he resided.
His lands were in what became Southborough and his family was assigned

4. MOSES NEWTON 2 (Kichard 1 ), son of Richard and Anne (Loker) New-
ton from England, and of Sudbury, Mass., was born at Sudbury, October 20,
1645, or March 26, 1646. Both dates are given in the records, and as that there
could not have been two children born at those dates, I have supposed the first
date was the birth and the second the date of baptism. He died at South-
borough, May 23, 1736.

He married at Marlborough October 27, 1668, Joannah Larkin, daughter of
Edward and Joanna ( ) Larkin§ of Charlestown, Mass., and sister of

% William Kerley was early in the Colony, and a man of prominence. Lands were assigned
to him on Pedoek's Island, Nantucket, in 1642. and in Marlhorough in 1657. He was for
several years a Selectman ; was appointed by the General Court to lay out a tract of land
between Concord, Lancaster and Groton. He died in 1684. His will mentions his wife, Anna.

and military books ; bis brother-in-law. Nathaniel Joslin, and his father-in-law, Thomas King.

his brother John's wife. The date of her birth is not given ; but it would
be about 1645 or 1646, as she is placed in the order of her father's children.
She was the mother of all of Moses Newton's children. She died at Marlborough,
December 25, 1713. "Wife of Moses Sr."

fHe married (2) at Marlborough, April 14, 1714. Sarah Joslin, whom I suppose
to be daughter of Nathaniel and Sarah (King) Joslin* of Lancaster, and after
the destruction of that town of Marlborough, whose will, dated 1694, mentions
several daughters besides daughter Sarah, and sons Nathaniel and Peter. Peter's
family was killed by the Indians, 1692. Nathaniel (the son) lived in Marl-
borough, and requests an administrator for his sister, Sarah Newton's estate,
as below. She was probably born at Lancaster, and the town record of it was
destroyed. Born about 1660.

To us who are not familiar with such documents, having no further need
of them, the contract of marriage given below, of Moses Newton and Sarah Jos-
lin, is interesting. Interesting, also, for its many signatures. Here Moses New-
ton signs with his mark. On the inventory of James Taylor's estate he signs
his own name; as also here do his brother, Joseph Newton, Sr., and Nathaniel
Joslin. Sarah Joslin seems to have had enough of "whether money moveables
Lands or whatsoever :" to require that the court appoint an administrator of
her estate; and at the request of her brother, Nathaniel Joslin, Isaac Temple
of Marlborough was so appointed. He calls him, "my Brother Isaac Temple."
Isaac Temple and Martha Joslin, married 1699, in Marlborough, may be the ones,
and probably were.

I Sarah, "wife of Moses Newton, Sr.," died at Marlborough, November 4, 1723,
aged 63. The following March 9, 1724, her brother asked to have an adminis-
trator appointed, and on June 1, 1724, Isaac Temple was appointed and gave
bond in the sum of £100.

In regard to the present condition of these old legal papers, the copyist states
of the marriage contract: "This was too faint for me to trace, and has been
through the emery process, as it is all to pieces." Of the second paper — the
request for administrator: "This was a small slip of paper and has been emery
processed." Of the fourth paper — appointment of administrator : "This is a
large sheet of good rag paper, and written in large hand on the upper half of
the sheet." Number three paper is the bond of usual wording, the body of it
omitted here. [See the Bond in administration of Edward Newton's 3 estate.]
There was no inventory or other papers.

* Thomas Joslin 1 , aged 43. and Rebecca, hi* wife, aged 43, with five children, embarked
at London. April, 1635, for America, and settled in Ilingham, Mass., where he was a pro-
prietor in 1637. He and his son Nathaniel? subscribed to the town covenant in Lancaster.
1654. Thomas 1 died 1660, aged about 68. His widow m. (2) 1664. William Kekley. The
ages of the five children are given at embarkation, and there was an older son Abraham 2 who

New Hampshire and Maine in the early Indian wars. Children were : Abraham", b. abt. 1615.

Moses Newton received his portion of his father's estate during the father's
lifetime. It was probably part of the thirty acres granted to Richard Newton
for a house-lot, and was what in the will is described as "bounded, Eastward
with the land of my son Moses'' of the land given to son John. The records also
mention "lands granted to Moses Newton," and again, "Some plats of Land
excepted Granted to Moses Newton sen r a Liberty to make use of the stream of
Stony Brook And the use of the Land about where his Iron works are."

I was glad to find this about the "Ironworks." Very many of the Newtons
of the Richard branch have been blacksmiths, gunsmiths, etc., workers in iron.
The genius for it seems something inherent. They called them "Smiths" in
those days, and the ability to be a "Smith" was counted as an asset to the
town one lived in.

What these Ironworks of Moses Newton, Sr., were I do not know. It was
probably a smelter, or a blomary, or a foundry; something more than a
blacksmith's shop. They did things in a small way in those days, but got the
results they desired. What leads me to think the ironworks at Southborough
was of the kind above mentioned is that it is said by the historian of Sudbury
that within the present [1800] century, iron ore dug in the town was laden on
boats at Old Town Bridge and taken down Sudbury river to Chelmsford.

Moses Newton, Sr., was of those who bought lands in the Indian Plantation
and got illegal deeds. What his venture was in acres does not yet appear.

Some of this — 34 acres of it, he sold in 1700, to Daniel Rice [see below].
In 1688, taxes under Governor Andros, Moses Newton, persons and estate,
£00-06-04.

In the controversy over the settlement of Rev. Mr. Emerson, Moses Newton
and his sons David and Edward were opposed to it. He became freeman April
18, 1690. This of course carried church membership with it. In one mention
of him which I have seen he was styled "Deacon Moses Newton." I do not know
about that. In the Indian wars and troubles 1700-1713, Moses Newton, Sr., his
son Moses, Jr., and John Newton with their families were assigned to Isaac
Howe's Garrison, No. 6, which was on the road to Southborough, near the now
Newton railroad station.

In the settlement of the "Garrison of the West Regiment of Middlesex, March
1692," there were stationed in Marlborough 113 men. Of these, twelve men
were apportioned to a group of Moses Newton and five other families.

Moses Newton and his wife, Joanna, were members of the church at Marl-
borough. They had their son Edward baptized in the First Church in Charles-
town, that being the church of her parents. The record there is: Baptized,
3-4-1676. "y e son of Moses Newton & Joanna his wife, of y e ch of Xt in Marl-
borough." In regard to this wife Joanna, I desire to call attention to the fact
that she was permitted to put her "mark and seal" to at least one of the deeds
by which her husband conveyed his real estate. It was not then customary, I
am told, nor needful, that the wife sign.

In King Philip's War, Marlborough, being a frontier town, was severely
checked in its growth by the invasion of the savages. Though there were soldiers



CHILDREN OF RICHARD NEWTON 35

stationed there (some in the home of Moses Newton were hilletted), yet so
stealthy was the approach of the Indians, tha£ the troops afforded little pro-
tection. After a while they were withdrawn. Within four days after the with-
drawal of the troops the Indians again appeared. The following I quote from
Mr. Packard's account of the town, as given in Barber's Historical Collection.
The story is told in many other books; but in whatever phraseology the story
runs Moses Newton is given credit for being the hero of the day. It is stated,
that "on a Sabbath, when Mr. Brimstead was in sermon, March 20, 1676, the
worshiping assembly was suddenly dispersed by an outcry 'Indians at the door.'
The confusion of the moment was instantly increased by a fire from the enemy ;
but the God whom they were worshiping shielded their lives and limbs, excepting
the arm of one, Moses Newton, who was carrying an elderly and infirm woman to
a place of safety. In a few minutes they were sheltered in their fort with the
mutual feelings peculiar to such a scene. Their meeting house, and many
dwelling-houses, left without protection, were burnt. Fruit trees pilled and
hacked and other valuable effects rendered useless, perpetuated the barbarity of the
savages many years after the inhabitants returned . . . many left their farms
until the seat of war was farther removed." Hudson, in his history of Marl-
borough, states that Moses Newton "received a ball in his elbow, from the
effects of which he never fully recovered."

There are many deeds on record conveying lands to and from Moses Newton,
Sr. Some "lots and parcels" he received from his father, some by grants from
the proprietors of Marlborough and the Indian Purchase, and some by pur-
chase f"om the other proprietors. I have taken from the records only a few of
these deeds — those that he gave to his sons — making a specialty of them, as being
somewhat historical of himself and of them. I give an abstract of them here,
all in one place, where they can be the more easily consulted. He began to
settle some of his lands on his sons in 1702, and continued to one after another
the gifts until all had had a portion. In 1713 he made over his homestall
(containing over 140 acres) to his two sons, Jacob and Ebenezer, who were then
unmarried and living with him. In 1722 Ebenezer married a niece of his
mother (who bore the same name) and in 1724, Moses, Jacob and Ebenezer
made other deeds, dividing the property their father had given them jointly.
Moses Newton was part owner of other lands in Marlborough, which were sold.
Al streets of two such deeds are here given.

V<First and last Moses Newton, Sr., was quite a large landholder for those
times. Just the extent of his holdings is unknown to me. There was certainly
the more than 230 acres he gave to five of his sons; and the more than 140
acres of homestead settled on the sons Jacob and Ebenezer; with the interest
in "A certain lot of land, Quonsiganiog Farm," acreage not given, and the
part interest in the tract of more than 360 acres conveyed in 1725. As for the
other deeds, they may be consulted.
