Adams, Henry (b. 21 JAN 1583, d. 6 OCT 1646)
Note: Henry Adams was the first member of what would become one of America's most famous families to arrive in this country. There has been a great deal of speculation regarding his ancestry, but his origins among the yeomanry of Somerset now seems beyond dispute.

The earliest record of him appears in his father's will of 1604, at which time he must have been of age. He appears to have lived in Barton St. David until 1622 when he moved to Kingweston, a neighboring village. He emigrated to Massachusetts in 1638 and was given forty acres at Mount Wollaston by the town of Boston on February 24th, 1639/40, upon payment of three shillings per acre. In England he had been a farmer and maltser and carried on those professions in America.

His one surviving signature is in the "Italian hand," which would indicate a decent, if local, education.

At his death he left an estate valued at 75 pounds, 13 shillings.

Henry Adams and Edith Squire, besides being ancestors of the two Adams presidents, are the 9th great grandparents of President Calvin Coolidge.

Nichols, Isaac (b. 27 DEC 1617, d. 1695)
Note: Isaac Nichols was a prosperous merchant and possibly a shipbuilder of Stratford. He owned much real estate in the vicinity. He was an original patentee of Stratford and served as a deputy to the General Court in May 1662 and in Oct 1664. He is described in the history of Stratford as a "substantial and prominent citizen."

Among the provisions of his will is the interesting bequest "Concerning my Indian servant George, I give him to my wife during her natural life."

It is an interesting statistical oddity that three of Isaac Nichols's eleven children (27.7) were born on Feb 2.

----------, Elizabeth (b. ABT 1575, d. 10 JAN 1663/64)
Note: While we do not know her maiden name--and it is most unlikely that it will ever be determined--Elizabeth is unusual in that we know much more about her than about her husband, whose first name in this genealogy is conjectural. The reason for this is that the minister of the Cambridge church, the Reverend Thomas Stone, recorded the experiences of people admitted to membership in the church, or, as he put it, "Confessions of diverse p'pounded to be received and entertained as members." Historians, and genealogists, soon learn to be very, very fond of people like the Rev. Stone.

He wrote the following about "Goodwife Cutter":

"I was born in a sinful place where no sermon was preached. Concerning my parents, I knew not my father, my mother sent me to Newcastle, where placed in a godly family (as I think), I heard the words 'Fear God and Keep his Commandments:' two of which (the third and fourth commandments) I saw I brake. For six or seven years I was connected there, and then went into another family where the people were carnal, and there fell into a consumption, and afterward followed with Satan. And afraid he would have me away, Mr. Rodwell came to me, and was an instrument of much good to me. Afterwards the Lord's hand was sad on me. My husband was taken away, and I was sent to this place [Cambridge] and I desired to come this way in sickness time; and the Lord brought us through many sad troubles by sea; but when here the Lord rejoiced my heart."

She goes on to relate further troubles before she felt that she enjoyed God's grace.

Her son, Richard, also alludes to a difficult crossing in his relation, so that it is safe to assume that the trip, which took place in late winter--the sickness time, after months of poor diet--was a ghastly one.

Elizabeth Cutter came to Massachusetts about 1640, when she would have been sixty-five, an advanced age in that time, especially to endure a sea voyage. She lived with her daughter Barbara--an unusual name among Puritans--and her husband Elijah Cortlet.

When she died she left an estate of 19 pounds, 4 shillings, and 6 pence.

Tileston, Thomas (b. 1611, d. 24 JUN 1694)
Note: Thomas Tileston was a grantee of land in Dorchester in 1634. He was made a freeman in 1636. The "New England Historical and Genealogical Quarterly" says of him that, "he appears to have been an enterprising man, and it was he who set out the elms on the Meeting House Hill in 1676, which were cut down in 1775."

Torrey, Philip (b. , d. ABT 1621)
Note: Philip Torrey lived all his life in Combe St. Nicholas in Somerset, and was listed in the records there as a husbandman, although his landholdings must have been fairly extensive.

Not much is known about him or his wife, but both their wills have survived and show them to be people of considerable means. He left specific bequests amounting to 173 pounds and his wife left hundreds of pounds more, with the residue going to their eldest son, William. Philip left the residue to his wife but left to William his "biggest brazen pot, the furnace kettle, the best table board, the cupboard with this condition that his mother shall have use of it so long as she doth keep herself widow and dwelling in the house."

Greene, John (b. ABT 1590, d. JAN 1659)
Note: Dr. John Greene was the great grandfather of General Nathaniel Greene of the Revolution and is the ancestor of all the Rhode Island Greenes, who have been governors, congressmen, and senators from that state.

He practiced as a surgeon in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England, for sixteen years before emigrating to Boston on board the James, arriving Jun 3 1635.

He settled first in Salem, where he became associated with Roger Williams. He joined Williams in Providence shortly after the latter's expulsion from Massachusetts. He was baptized by Williams and was one of the twelve original members of the first Baptist church in America.

His first wife died shortly after their arrival in Boston and his second died as a result of the "Shawomet Persecution" when mounted and armed men from Massachusetts forced many to flee into the woods, where they died of exposure.

John Greene was the first professional medical man in Rhode Island. He moved to Warwick in 1643 and held many important offices until his death.

The ancestry of John Greene and his wife, despite a great deal of wishful thinking, is not certain.

Almy, William (b. 1601, d. 28 FEB 1677/78)
Note: William Almy came to New England in 1635, with his family on the Abigail. There are references to an earlier William Almy of Cambridge, Massachusetts, but it is unlikely that these are the same man.

Robert Way was ordered to serve him until he had cleared a debt amounting to 111 pounds, no small sum at that time and place. William Almy was of gentry origins, as indicated by the fact that he is always referred to as Mister in the records.

He moved to Sandwich, Massachusetts, in April 1637 and to Portsmouth, Rhode Island, in 1641. He held a number of minor offices in Rhode Island and appears to have been prosperous.

He was one of the first Quakers in America.

William Almy and Audrey Barlow are the 8th great grandparents of both President Richard Nixon and of President Jimmy Carter.
