ANCESTRY



OF



COL. JOHN HARVEY.



INTEODUCTION.



There were two persons in Boston at the same time bearing
the name of William Harvey. One of them lived and died
there ; the other subsequently removed to Taunton. Our Col.
John Harvey was descended from William Harvey of Boston.

Oscar Jewell Harvey, author of " The Harvey Book," of the
Taunton Line, Wilkesbarre, Penn., 1899, says:

" I think it very clearly proved by the public records herein
referred to, and by other records, that there was no William
Harvey residing at Plymouth in 1639, and that the two Will-
iams ' then in New England,' were (1) William of Taunton,
whose wife was Joanna Hucker, and (2) William of Boston,
who married Martha Copp." (Page 35.)

William Harvey of Taunton married Joanna Hucker of Co-
hannet, April 2, 1639, and resided for some years in Boston.

From what part of England William Harvey came is not
known. We have a clue from the Will of Agnes Clarke of
Ayshill, or Ashill, Somerset, three miles west of Ilminster, and

nine miles east of Taunton, widow, dated Oct. 20, 1647, proved
May 10, 1648.

I give and bequeath unto William Harvey the son of Thomas
Harvey deceased, my kinsman, now in New England, eighteen

pounds, which sum is to be paid as soon as it can be recovered,

if he shall come to demand it at any time within four years, but if
he come not then my will is that William Harvey the son of James
Harvey shall have the said money at such time as he shall be of
lawful age to give a discharge. I give to the said William son of
James Harvey fifteen pounds when of age. I give and be-
queath unto William Harvey in New England all my household
stuff during his life, if he come to claim it, and after his decease to
remain in the house to the use of James Harvey, his brother, and
the said James to make use of it until William, his brother, shall
come to claim it. (N. E. Hist. Geneal. Register, xlvi : p. 453 ;
Waters' Gleanings in Eng., i : p. 645.)

She mentions Elizabeth Harvey, wife of Richard Harvey " my
kinsman," whom she makes her sole executor and to whom she
leaves the residue of her estate. The name of her husband was
John Clarke.

Ashill Church Registers begin 1558 : unfortunately the Reg-
ister of births, marriages and burials from 1628 to 1653 has
been lost. The entries for 1625-1628 are almost illegible.
There seem to have been three families of name of Harvie at
Ashill, — Richard, Thomas and Nicolas. But for the loss of
these Registers we might have been able, perhaps, to connect
the Family with the Parish of Ashill. The Rev. W. R. Hart-
wright, Vicar of Pitminster, Eng., has kindly made for me a
transcript of the records.

There were other Harveys in New England who were per-

Robert Barnard of Salisbury, 1642-1644, of Andover 164 5
1663, and subsequently of Nantucket, where he died in 1682.

Thomas 4Iarvey married 1643, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas
Wall of Hampton, N. H., and living Aug. 20, 1663, when he
sold land at Hampton, and perhaps in 1683.

William Harvey of Taunton was perhaps related.

Ancestry of Col. John Harvey.



I am indebted to Hoyt's work entitled " The Old Families
of Salisbury and Amesbury," for much valuable information ;
also to the " History of Sutton, N. H.," by Mrs. Augusta Har-
vey Worthen. I have also visited three ancient cemeteries in
Amesbury and Merrimac, and found only one Harvey grave-
stone, that of Joseph 4 Harvey, who died Jan. 18, 1761.

Prior to 1752 the new year began on the 25th of March.
After the last day of Dec, 1751, the neAV year began Jan. 1, in
1752.





FIRST GENERATION.



1 WILLIAM 1 HARVEY, born , in England; died

Aug. 15, 1658, in Boston; married , Martha Copp,

daughter of William and Judith Copp, of Boston. He was
admitted to the First Church, July 4, 1640 (" 4. 5. 1640 "),
and his wife Judith, Jan. 24, 1640-1 (" 24. 11. 1640 "). She
married (2), Nov. 10, 1659, in Boston, by Gov. John Endicott,
Henry Tewxbery, or Tuxbury, weaver. Some have thought
that William Harvey of Boston, and William Harvey of Taun-
ton, were the same person, but there is no proof of tins, and the
Public Records show the contrary. He is also said to have
married Martha Slocum, which must have been a second mar-
riage, but there is no evidence of this, and the Will of William
Copp, cordwainer, shows that his daughter Martha was the
mother of William Harvey's children. His Will, dated Oct. 31,
1662, probated March 15, 1669-70, mentions the widow, now
married again, and her four Harvey children :

Daughter Tewxbery to live in the house where son David lives,
on her death to grand child William Harvey, he to give his brothers
Thomas and John Harvey ten pounds apiece, and Maiy Harvey five
pounds. 10 acres ground beyond Braintree to grandchild William
Harvey. (N. E. Hist. Geneal. Reg., xlviii: p. 459.)

8 Ancestry of Col. John Harvey.

The " ground beyond Braintree " was granted William Copp
at a Town* Meeting in Boston, March 8, 1657-8 : " Itt is or-
dered that Goodman Copp shall have some land given him
att Braintree, according to the discretions of the select men."
(Boston Records, ii, Pt. 1 : p. 144.)

William Harvey's Will was probated in Boston, and widow
Martha was appointed administratrix. The Inventory was
made Jan. 18, 1658-9 ("18. 11. 1658"). There was a house,
garden and pigs. The widow was to have care of the four
young children. (Suffolk Probate Docket 207, and Vol. iii : p.
144.)

Henry Tewksbury, Tewxbery, or Tuxbury, was of Newbury
in 1662 ; he took the Oath of Allegiance in that town May 25,
1669; he sold his place the same year and removed to Ames-
bury, where he took the Oath of Allegiance Dec. 20, 1677 ; was
si member of the Train-band in 1680, and signed the Norfolk
County Petition the same year ; was a Freeman in 1690 ; a
Tythingman in 1693, the first time they were chosen, and was
living in 1697. A Martha Tuxbury died Jan. 12, 1729-30,
and may have been his wife.

Many removed from the old town of Salisbury and made
a new settlement, which was commonly called the new town,
or New Salisbury, March 14, 1654-5 (" 14. 1. 1654 "). A
covenant was drawn up between the old and new town, and
the inhabitants of the latter were taxed for certain purposes in
the old town till 1667-8, when it was incorporated under the
name of Amesbury, sometimes spelled Eamsbury and Almes-
hii iy. The first Meeting-house was erected in 1665. No trace
of it now remains, but a big stone with a bronze inscription, in
the old cemetery, marks the place. The West Parish of Ames-
bury, where the Second Church was organized May 19, 1726,
and where most of the Harveys resided, is now the town of
Merrimac, incorporated in 1876.

Foot was chosen to fill out the remainder of the term ; in

land near where stands the Universalist Church, and where
probably they lived, and a mill on Cobblers' brook. lie was

acres, all mortgaged to the Province. The value of the
estate was small. (Essex Probate, cccxi : 360; cccxii : 19-
