GENERATION 2

 

CHILDREN OF WILLIAM GRAVES (1) AND BEATRICE ------

Francis Graves (2) may have been born about 1650 or 1651 (according to an entry in the LDS Ancestral File). He arrived in America soon after 1673. He lived in Ipswich, MA, 1674-1682. He married Amy (Onion) Purington, widow of Robert Purington, on 27 Aug. 1689 in Portsmouth, ME (then part of MA). Francis was of Salisbury, formerly of Piscataway, in 1690. He served on a coroner's jury in Portsmouth, March 1693/4, and dissented to vote about the schoolmaster's salary there in 1696. He was living 3 July 1703. Amy was a member of North Church in 1699 and earlier. In 1715 as a widow of Portsmouth, she deeded for life support to her daughter Hannah. (R-1)

Children - Graves

4. Hannah Graves, b. 29 Aug. 1690 (Salisbury), m(1) Thomas Stephens, 23 Nov. 1712, m(2) Thomas Blashfield.

 

John Graves (3) was born about 1651 in Bentley, Yorkshire, England. He was sent over to America about 1673 by his uncle, Mr. Samuel Hall, formerly of Salisbury, to Mr. Samuel Symonds of Ipswich, MA. He was soon followed by his brother Francis. John did not refund his passage money to his uncle; Francis did and was remembered in his uncle's will (Waters, i, 780-1).

John married Martha Mitton, daughter of Michael Mitton and Elizabeth Cleeve, before 8 Nov. 1677, perhaps not in ME.

John lived in Ipswich in 1678, and was noticed in Falmouth only in June 1680, when he was granted administration on Michael and Nathaniel Mitton's estates, sued Nathaniel Materson for defamation, and witnessed George Felt's deed. He was apparently gone the next month, possibly direct to Kittery, where he lived on Champernowne's Island, 1680-87. He was recommended by Mr. Tyng in July 1686 as a marshall for the Province. He served on a grand jury, 1687, and as foreman of that jury, 1688 (lists 225a, 227). He deposed in July 1690 (age about 39) about Capt. Champernowne 14 years before and money he had engaged to pay Samuel Hall. His wife Martha was paid 8 in 1682 from the money Mr. Hall left for relief of war sufferers.

Martha died in 1700 at Little Compton, RI, where they removed after 1690 (list 225). John Graves last found deposed in Kittery, 15 May 1712, age about 60.

The fact that John was in Falmouth for a short time is probably the reason he has been confused with a fourth generation descendant of immigrant Samuel Graves of Lynn, MA (see Samuel Graves, 1630 Settler of Lynn, Mass. And His Descendants, Kenneth Vance Graves, 1985, pp. 30-31).

There may have been other children, as Martha and Dorothy were the "two surviving daughters" in 1722. (R-1)
