DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS GRAVES OF NAHANT & LYNN, MA

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Thomas Graves (1) was apparently born in the early 1600's in England.  By the depositions of various individuals who testified in the contest over the Nahant lands, it is shown that one Thomas Graves was the first inhabitant of Nahant, and Hugh Alley (his son-in-law) the second.

According to History of Lynn, by Lewis and Newhall, "William Wood came to Lynn in 1629, and was admitted a freeman 18 May, 1631.  He resided there, according to his own account, about four years; and during that time he wrote an interesting work, entitled "New Englands Prospect," containing a very favorable account of the early settlements.  On 15 August, 1633, he sailed with Captain Thomas Graves, for London, where, in 1634, he printed his book, in one hundred pages.  In 1635, he published a map of New England, engraved on wood.  He returned to Lynn the same year.  He embarked on the eleventh of September, in the Hopewell, of London, being then 27 years of age; bringing with him his wife, Elizabeth, aged 24 years, as appears by the records in Westminster Hall, London."

It is possible that this Capt. Thomas Graves was the Thomas Graves of Nahant and Lynn.  A puzzling observation is that the only Capt. Thomas Graves who is known to have made numerous voyages between New England and England was the one who lived in Charlestown, MA, and later became Rear Admiral.  However, the evidence does not seem to fit, as mentioned in the last paragraph.

There was also supposedly a Thomas Graves of Dorchester, about whom almost nothing is known. Could this be the one referred to in the undated account written by Gov. John Winthrop of the Massachusetts Bay Colony about a Thomas Graves who went from Mass. To Virginia with his family, and all were lost at sea except for one daughter who married Nathaniel Eaton.  (Although the Thomas Graves whose daughter married Nathaniel Eaton was the one of genealogy 169, which doesnŐt make apparent sense, perhaps Winthrop confused two men of the same name.)

In Sept. 1635 (or Nov. 1629), Mary Graves and her sister Joanna Graves arrived in Salem, Mass., in the ship "Hopewell".  These two were the children of Thomas Graves, as they went to Nahant where Thomas was settled.

There has been some speculation that Thomas Graves was the same as or connected with: (1) Capt. Thomas Graves of VA (gen. 169), (2) Thomas Graves, the engineer who planned Charlestown, Mass. (gen. 131, and may be the same as gen. 168), (3) Thomas Graves who settled in Newcastle Co., Delaware (gen. 85), and (4) Thomas Graves who settled in Hartford, CT and later in Hatfield, MA (gen. 168).  Because so little is known of exact dates for the Thomas of Nahant, it is not absolutely impossible that he could have been the same as the Thomas of Va.  It is also possible that Thomas, the engineer, went to Charlestown, moved to Boston, was involved with the unsuccessful settlement in the Bahamas, may have returned to Nahant and been followed by his two daughters, and then may have either returned to England or possibly moved to Delaware.  The Thomas Graves of Delaware is thought by some to have come from Lynn, Mass., but the suggested date of the move is about 1690, much too late to have been any of the other known men named Thomas Graves.  Also, Thomas of Delaware was a Quaker, which does not seem to fit any of the others.

It is also interesting that Hugh Alley who married Mary Graves, the daughter of Thomas of Nahant, was from Stepney parish in England, the same place that Rear Admiral Thomas Graves of Charlestown, Mass. was from. However, it seems unlikely that Thomas of Nahant was the same as Rear Admiral Thomas Graves; neither a Mary nor a Joanna were mentioned in the 1652 will of Rear Admiral Thomas Graves.  More research on all these possibilities is needed, but the possible connections are very interesting.  (R‑3, R‑200, R‑201)

GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF THOMAS GRAVES (1)

Mary Graves (2) arrived in Salem, Mass. from England in Sept. 1635 (or Nov. 1629, according to another source) in the ship "Hopewell", with her sister Joanna.  She went to live with her father, Thomas Graves, in Nahant, Mass. She married Hugh Alley, Sr. in 1641.  He died 25 Jan. 1674.

Hugh Alley was one of the earliest and most prominent settlers at Nahant and the only one who kept his home there in opposition to the decree of Lynn that it should be "sown down to English grass, and that no house should be left standing", as a final settlement of the fierce controversy raging as to the proprietorship of the land at Nahant.

The first that is known of Hugh Alley is in 1635 when, at the age of 27 years, he embarked, a "no subsidy" man, from Stepney parish, England, in the ship "Abigail" bound for New England.  In company with him were Henry and Ann Collins with three children - Henry, John and Margery.  He must have settled at Nahant as early as 1647 or 1648, as six of his children were born there.  He was the second settler of Nahant (his father-in-law Thomas Graves was the first), and his house and barn were standing in 1673 or 1674.  His homestead was a most desirable dwelling place, with the bounty of land and sea at its very doors.

He served in the Pequot war, as by deposition of Benjamin Collins and others, "the land now in controversie, called the Hope Well, was given to Hugh Alley for his services in the Pequot war."  It would seem that they were a sturdy fighting family, for his son Solomon was killed afterwards in King Phillip's war.  (R‑3, R‑200)
