6. ELIZABETH NEWTON 2 (Kichard 1 ), daughter of Kichard and Anne
(Loker) Newton, from England to Sudbury, Mass., was born, place not recorded,
about 1650, more or less. She died at Marshfield, Mass., the "wid. of Jacob
Dingley," and was buried at Marshfield, March 30, 1718. In 1693, her father
mentions her in his will in this wise : "unto each of my two daughters, namely
Elizabeth Dingley, sen r .... I bequeath Two Shillings, and no more, because
I have given a portion to each already, these shillings shall be paid . . . within
Two months after my decease." At this date she had been a widow for two years,
and she continued in that condition the remainder of her life.

She married at (I suppose Marlboro'), about 1668 or 1669, Jacob Dingley, Sr.,
son of John and Sarah (Chillingworth[ ?]*) Dingley^ of Sandwich and Marsh-
field, Mass., who was born , 1642, and died at Marshfield, August 18, 1691.

Where they resided during their married life and where their children were
born, I have not obtained. Their children, as copied from the Maine Historical
Eegister [Vol. 2, p. 120], together with what I have taken from the Marshfield
records, are as follows. That four of the daughters should have been married
at Marshfield, and the parents should have died there, would seem to indicate
that town as the family home — between the years 1698 and 1727, at least. The
children probably were born in one, or both, of those towns — Sandwich and
Marshfield. I have tried to find the will of Jacob Dingley, but have not been
successful.



* Thomas Chillingwobth 1 was probably the only male Chillingworth in New England in
the seventeenth century. After a short residence in Lynn and Sandwich, Mass., he settled at
Marshfield and was a Representative in 1648 and 1652. He was one of the men there able to
bear arms in 1643. The administration on his estate was granted, March 1652-3, to his widow,
Joanna. The inventory was taken by John Dingley, Arthur Howland and John Russell, and
was exhibited at Court June 7, 1653. Amount, £180. The will of Thomas Hampton of
Sandwich, March 1637, gives to Thomas Chillingworth. and to other names. His widow
married (2) Thomas Dogget. She was buried at Marshfield September 4, 1684. Mr. Chilling-
worth had four daughters and no son : 1, Elizabeth 2 , b. ; d. Sept. 28, 1665, unm.

2, ilehitabel 2 . b. ; m. May 2, 1661. Justus Eames of Marshfield. 3, Mary 2 , b. ;

m. about 1663, Dea. John Foster of Marshfield. 4, Sarah 2 , b. ; m. Samuel Sprague,

"the last Secretary of Plymouth Colony." It is questioned whether she was the wife also of
John Dingley, or whether another Sarah was. I do not know.

* John Dingley 1 , bora in England in 1608, is said to have been in Lynn. Mass.. as early as
1637. The settlement of the town of Sandwich, Mass., was commenced by a number of families
from "Saugus," the early name for Lynn, In 1637. The original grant was from the Old
Colony of Plymouth the same year. There were fifty-six proprietors, who were given "liberty
to view the place to sit down on" and form a town, among whom is the name of John
Dingley 1 . August, 1643, in the list of all males at Sandwich, between the ages of 16-60 years,
inclusive, able to bear arms, is the name of John Dingley 1 ; as also his name in a Marshfield
list the same year, forty-nine such men. The earliest list of freemen, taken about 1644 — only
eleven were of Marshfield — one was John Dingley 1 . June 7, 1653, John Dingley 1 with
Arthur Howland and John Russell took the inventory of the estate of Thomas Chillingworth
of Marshfield. Amount, £180. Also, inventory of the estate of William Haloway of Marshfield,
taken (no date) by John Dingley 1 , Robert Carver and John Russell. Amount, £65. 15s. JOHN

Dingley 1 , was buried at Marshfield, , 1658. The Maine Historical Register gives

Sarah as the name of his wife. "Chillingworth," states one in Boston Transcript, newspaper.
The children of John Dingley 1 as hoiv given are not in their order, and may not be all of
them. I give them as I have found them in the above-mentioned authorities: 1, John

Dingley, Jr. 2 , b. ; d. ("son of John"), buried at Marshfield, July 9, 1665. 2, Mary

Dingley*, b. ; m. at Marshfield Dec. 19, 1654, Lieut. Joslah Standish 2 , and "dyed and

was buried at Duxborough July 1, 1665." This is the record of her marriage and death. The
History of Bridgewater has that she married and died the same year. She Is the daughter-in-
law mentioned in the will of Captain Myles Standish, near whose grave and that of his
daughter Lora he desired to be buried. Josiah Standish- was second son of Captain Myles 1 ;
lived awhile in East Bridgewater ; moved to Duxbury about 1686, where he became a prom-
inent citizen ; and removed to Norwich, Conn. He married (2) Sarah Allen, and is mentioned

7. SAEAH NEWTON" 2 (Eichard 1 ), daughter of Eichard and Anne (Loker)
Newton, from England to Sudbnry, Mass., was born probably at Sudbury, and
between the years 1645 and 1655. The executor of his will named by her hus-
band refusing to serve, the widow was appointed by the Court; her exhibit of
the inventory of the estate, as administrator, was made October 10, 1713 ; thus
we know she was living at that date. She would then have been sixty years old,
or thereabout. Her death, I do not find, and she may have married again, as
was the fashion for widows in those days.

She married about 1670, — the record does not appear, — James Taylor, Sr., one
of the early proprietors of Marlborough, although not of the firstcomers. His
name appears with grants of land and divisions of the Cow Commons, about
the time, and along with the names of the children of the petitioners for Marl-
borough. Where he came from, and who he was, I have not traced. The
family lived in Marlborough, and near to Daniel Eice's Garrison, No. 17,
"some two miles easterly of the Meeting House" — if she is the "Widow Sarah
Taylor" so assigned. Some of his land "bounded" with land willed by Eichard



in the will of her father, Samuel Allen of Braintree. as his son-in-law. 3, Sarah Dingley',

b. . 1639 ; d. . 1727, married at Marshfield, Nov. 4, 1658, William Ford, Jr., and

The following is from the History of Marshfield, Mass. While not exactly in the Newton
line the data is relative and may help some one: "Widow Ford 1 " (widow of William Ford 1 )

relationship, but the names set one speculating. [See Bradford Family.]

9. DANIEL NEWTON 2 , SR. (Richard 1 ), son of Richard and Anne (Loker)
Newton from England to Sudbury and later of Marlborough, Mass., was born
at Sudbury, December 21, 1655, and died at Southborough, Mass., November
29, 1739.

He married at Marlborough, December 30, 1679, Susanna Morse, daughter of
Joseph and Susanna (Shattuck) Morse* of Groton and Watertown, Mass. She
was born at Groton, January 11, 1662-3, and died at Southborough, May 13,
1729. She was his only wife, and the mother of eleven children.

Daniel Newton, Sr., lived in Marlborough, Mass. All of his children were
born there.

In the deeds given below he calls himself "husbandman" and "yeoman,"
which are words then used for farmer. In one deed he mentions "my interest
in the Grist Mill at Stony Brook."

In all these deeds he signs with his "mark & seal."

Daniel Newton, Sr., as a very young child, removed with his parents from
Sudbury to Marlborough, and continued to reside in the same place the rest of
his life, although the name of his part of the town became Southborough.

His father gave him his portion; he married and settled, and his children were
all born, except one, during the liftime of Richard Newton, who, in his will,
adds no more to said portion except the legally required two shillings.

* For ancestry of Joseph Morse, see note to John Newton.*

NEWTON GENEALOGY



I do not find that he received from the town grants of land, more than the
mention of ''Land laid out to Daniel Newton for allowance for an Highway."
I suppose they had taken some of his land for a road, and gave some other in
lieu of it. However, he did have grants from the township, as the annexed
papers show.

In the controversy over the settlement of Kev. John Emerson, 1702, he voted
as opposed to it.

Taxes under Andros, 1688, his rate was for "person and estate" £00-03-06.

In the assignment of the families to their respective forts in the Indian
troubles, ending 1713, his name does not appear, while three of his son's families
are assigned to John Newton's Garrison. Perhaps one of them lived in the same
house with him.

December 16, 1698, he bought of his brother Joseph ten acres of land.

February 18, 1706, he gave to his son Daniel, Jr., ten acres of the land that
had come to him from his father and grandfather.

December 9, 1714, he gave to his son Benjamin, "upland, meadowland and
swamp-land."

February 26, 1721-2, he joins with John Newton, his nephew, in giving
twenty acres to his son Abraham, who had married Eachel, daughter of John
Newton.

October 17, 1722, he signed two deeds, transferring to his sons Samuel Newton
and Nathaniel Newton all of his personal estate for a sum of money, and all
of his real estate for money and bonds. In this last deed he mentions "All
grants from the township of Marlborough to me."

Thus it will be seen why there is no will of Daniel Newton, Sr., on record.
Having disposed of his estate in 1722, he lived seventeen years afterward — long
enough to use up the money received in exchange. And probably died in the
family of either his son Samuel or Nathaniel.
