Robert Williams of Roxbury, and his


^ HE following is an attempt at the early family record
of Robert Williams, of Roxbury, a record that has
proved puzzling to all who attempted to unravel its
intricacies. The author of the "Williams Family"
(1847), gave him a brother Nicholas ; two wives, Elizabeth
Stratton and Martha Strong ; four children, Samuel, Isaac,
Stephen and Thomas, and two unknown grandchildren,
(named in his will) Deborah Totman and Elizabeth Robin-
son. A coat of arms was attiibuted to him, and a probability
expressed that he came from an ancient family of Williams,
of Flint, named by Thoresby (Ducatus Leodiensis), though
no attempt was made to trace his ancestry, beyond citing a
family tradition that he came from Norwich, England.

Savage (Genealogical Dictionary) adds a wife Margaret,
widow of John Fearing of Hingham, Mass , and children,
Mary, wife of Nicholas Wood (on the assurance of Mr. Clap),
and John (from the record of his death, intestate, and the
possible entry in the Roxbury church record, where a daugh-
ter Elizabeth is admitted to membership), though he notes
that the parent may be Robert rather than John. He doubts
the existence of wife Martha and son Thomas, as no mention
of them occurs in any of the Roxbury records. He also


(loul)ts the age attributed to the first wife Elizabeth Stratton,
and this doubt Avill present itself to each one who compares
her age, as given b}^ the record, with the dates of the births
of her three youngest children, and with the age of Robert
as given Liter on.

W. H. Whitmore (American genealogist) notices the book
of 1847, above given, and states that the right to use the coat
of arms is not proven. Others have touched upon various
branches of the family in magazine articles, pamphlets, and
one small book ; but, with tlie exception of the brochure of
Mr. Weld French, nothing has been added to the facts noted

After nearly a quarter of a century of interest in the sul>
ject, the following seems to have been the status of the first
four generations of the family of Robert Williams. As a
history of the steps by which the facts have been obtained
would be too extended for a magazine article, a mere skeleton
of the record will be given. The data will be discussed in
the forthcoming family record. As one or two of the state-
ments here made are not yet fully proven, this article aims to
draw attention to them, so that their defects may be rectified,
or the statements themselves disproved.

1. Robert^ Williams seems to have been born in Eng-
land in ] 608 (Embarkation record and the record of Rev.
William Williams, of Hatfield, agree on this point). He
was a "Cordwynar" of Norwich Co., Norfolk, England,
for at least a short time before sailing, April 8, 1637, in the
"John & Dorethy of Ipswich," Wm. Andrews, Master, "Fo.
newengland to Inhabitt." It is probable that he came of the
extensive family of the name near Norwich, which reaches
back to a considerable antiquity, and which has probably
given others of the name to Ncav England. His first wife,
Pjlizabeth Stalhan, may also have come from the neighbor-
hood, as similar records have been found. She died at Rox-
bmy, Mass., July 28, 1674, "aged 80 years." Robert Wil-
liams married, second, at Hingham, Mass., Nov. 3, 1675,
Margaret, widow of John Fearing of Hingham. She died


at Roxbury, Dec. 22, 1690. The third wife, Martha Strong,
or Story, is either a myth, or lie married Martha, widow of
Deacon William Parke, as the dates of death and the ages of
the two Marthas are identical. The first supposition is more
probable. Robert did not bring his brother Nicholas with
him, but did bring four children, Elizabeth, Deborah, John
and Samuel, and two servants, Mary Williams, aged 18 years,
and Anne Williams, aged 15 years. Mary was the second
wife of Nicholas Wood, before mentioned, and Anne was
probably his third wife and survived him. (See his will.)
Robert Williams died at Roxbury, Sept. 1, 1698, aged 86.
Nicholas Williams died there Aug. 27, 1692.

After a study of Thoresby, Burke, and other writers on the
English gentry, the conclusion is forced that Mr. Whitmore
was right in his comment, and that the coat of arms in the
work of 1847 belongs to the family of Mathew, and did so
belong before the origin of the "Ancient family of Williams
or Flint." Sir George Williams took the arms of Mathew
with the name, as is commonly the case ; but, even if the
coat were that of Williams, there is nothing to show that
Robert was of the Flint family. The chances are that he
will be found to have belonged to as ancient a family near
Norwich, as has been stated. As searches are now being
made, and as the matter is still in embryo, nothing will be
said regarding what has already been proved from wills and
records in England. The children were all by the first wife.
They were :

2. I. Elizabeth^, b. in England ;

3. II. Deborah^, b. in England :

III. John2, b. in England ; d. at Roxbury, Oct. 6,
1658, unmarried and intestate ;

4. IV. SamueP, b. in England. 1632 ;

5. V. Isaac^, b. at Roxbury, Sept. 1, 1638 ;

6. VI. Stephen^, b. at Roxbury, Nov. 8, 1640 ;

VII. Thomas^. Probably authentic, from similarity
of name to many in England. Date of birth
and death unknown. Family tradition states
that he died in youth.


2. IClizabeth^ Williams. Admitted to tlie church at
Roxbuiy ill 1644. She was the mother of Elizabeth Robin-
son, as none of the other children could have been the parent
of that grandchild. Elizabeth Kobinson was proljal)!}' the wife
of Wm. Robinson of Concord-Newton-Watertown. Jonathan
Robinson, son of the above, left a copy of the will of Richard
Cutter among his papers, endorsed "For the two Robinson
grandchildren of the deceased," which seems to show that
Elizabeth Robinson was the daughter of Richard Cutter of
Cambridge. Richard Cutter had two wives, and a daughter
Elizabeth by each. Bond gives a date of death of the first
one ; but the "Cutter Family" a later publication, says that
the date of her death is unknown. There have been instan-
ces of the same name having been given to a second child
when the first of the name was living. If Bond be right in
saying that Mary, daughter of Jonathan and Mar}^ {French)
Hyde, was the wife of Nathaniel Hammond, there were two
Marys in the family alive at the same time, as the Supreme
Court records show that Mary, wife of Eleazer Williams,
was daughter of Jonathan Hyde by his second wife Mary,
daughter of John Rediat. The two cases will be exactly
parallel. If, therefore, Elizabeth Robinson, above, be the
daughter of Richard Cutter, she must have been by the first
wife, as the second Elizabeth was but two years old at the
date of birth of the eldest Robinson child, and tlie first wife
of Richard must have been Elizabeth Williams, daughter of
Robert. They were married in 1644. Elizabeth^ died at
Cambridge, March 5, 1662. Iler age was unknown, but
given as "about 42," which would make her older than her
husband, who died June 16, 1693, "about 72." Children :

7. I. Elizabeth^, b. July 15, 1645 ;

II. SamueP, b. Jan. 3, 1647 ; d. unmarried ;
IH. Thomas^ b. July 19, 1648; according to one ac-
count he "died soon" ; to another he married
Abigail , had 4 ch. and d. })rob. 1693 ;

8. IV. William^, b. Feb. 22, 1650 ;


9. V. EpluaiinS, b. 1651 ;
10. VI. Gershom^, b. June, 1653 ;
VII. Maiy3, (or Marah.)

3. Deborah^ Williams married in the early part of
1648, John Turner of Roxbury, next-door-neighbor, but one,
to her father, as his second wife. Their first child was born
and their first two children were baptized at Roxbury. They
probably removed to Medfield in 1649, as they are found at
that place as original proprietors in the next year. Part of
their Roxbury estate was sold to Deacon William Parke of
Roxbury. Deborah^ died at Medfield in 1676, and John in
1705, having previously married a third wife named Alice.
Children :

Deborah-^, baptized Jan. 14, 1649 ;

Johns, b. March 3, 1651 ;

Isaac^, b. 1654 ;

Mary3, b. Nov. 18, 1658 ;

Samuel'^, b. 1661 ; d. unmarried, at Medfield;

Sarah'^, b. 1663 ;

Abigail^, b. 1667 ;

Hannah^, b. 1670 ; d. uinnarried, at Walpole.

4. Samuel^ Williams, shoemaker, deacon, etc., lived at
Roxbury ; married March 2, 1654, Theoda, eldest daughter
of Deacon William and Martha {HoJgrave) Parke, of Rox-
bury, and sister of Martha, who married his brother Isaac.
Theoda was born July 26, 1637, and, after the death of Sam-
ueP, Sept. 28, 1698, married Stephen Peck (not Park, as
given by Savage ; see gravestone at Roxbury, and SewalTs
diary for note of her funeral), and died August 2, 1718.
Children :

I. Elizabeth'^ b. Feb. 1 ; d. March 10, 1655 ;

1710; she died, s. p. before August, 1707 ;
V. Theoda3, b. July 27, 1662 ; d. of small pox Feb.

John3, b. Dec. 10, 1664 ;

Unnamed^ infant, b. and d. April 17, 1680.

6. IsAAC^ Williams ; weaver, captain, deacon, etc., at
Newton, Mass., married Martha Parke, mentioned before,
1660. She was b. March 2, 1642, and d. at Newton, Oct.
24, 1674, whither they removed immediately after marriage,
and settled on 500 acres purchased by her father from Major
Samuel Shepard. Isaac married second, Nov. 13, 1677, Ju-
dith, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth (^Smith) Hunt of Re-
hoboth, and widow of Nathaniel, son of Thomas Cooper of
the same, by whom she had had three children. She died in
1724, and Isaac^, Feb. 11, 1707. Children :
I. Isaac'^ b. and d. March 7, 1661 ;
Isaac^ b. Dec. 11, 1661 ;
Martha-s b. Dec. 27, 1663 ;
William^, b. Feb. 2, 1665 ;

Hannah^, b. Oct. 8, 1671, married (2d wife) John,
son of Job and Elizabeth {Fuller) Hyde of
Newton, born February 1, (Bond), Dec. 1,
(Jackson), 1681-2 ; died before 1739; shed.
8. p. April 28, 1739.
29. VIII. Elizabeth^, b. Oct. 8, 1671 (twin.)

IX. Thomas^, born Dec. 23, 1673. Jackson says that
he sold, 1708, his part of his father's estate ;



















but East Cambridge records do not show this
to be a fact. As he did not join in the pro-
test to his father's will, and as he is not men-
tioned in it, he probably died before his father.
There was, however, a Thomas Williams at
Newton, later, who by wife Lydia (Child) had
a daughter Lydia, b. July 22, 1754. It may
have been his son.

Children by the second wife :

I. Peter^, b. August 31, 1680 ; d. unmarried, 1732 ;
