One other birth and a marriage were recorded the Horny local women Duplessis Los Angeles year. The petitioners for the grant of the township did not all take up their abode here, and some who took Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 land soon disposed of their possessions and went elsewhere.
The Parkers were from Woburn. There were five brothers. Of the four whose names were among the petitioners, none of them long remained in Chelms- ford. James went, aboutto Groton, where he became the leading man of the town. Joseph also went to Groton and after to Dunstable. Jacob was the first town clerk of Chelmsford, but soon removed to Maiden, and John went to Billerica.
The Cham- berlins were also from Woburn. Thomas and Ed- mund settled in Chelmsford and William in Billerica. The first birth in that town was Samuel, the son of George Farley.
The latter was killed by Looking for Stamford engle Indians in the assault upon that town in Abraham Parker, the elder of the brothers, came early with his sons, Moses, John and Isaac, and re- mained in this town. The description which accompanied the plan is, unfortunately not preserved. When Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 adjoining territory came to be occupied the lines of the town were found to be so indefinite as to occasion an un- certainty as to the correct boundaries.
The plan of the town as laid out by the committee, as here shown, was engraved from a tracing from the original Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 the Massachusetts Archives, Ancient Plans, vol.
The space marked " India Land" was the tract reserved for the Indians. Joe 1 Letter of Jonathan Perham, At the time of King Philip's War the Indians mostly abandoned their reservation, and it was encroached upon by people from adjoining towns, mostly from Groton.
Boundary controversies grew out of this. The Chelmsford line bordered upon this tract for a considerable distance. In the selectmen of Chelmsford and Concord united in a petition to the General Court for a com- mittee to examine and settle these rival claims. This was done and the claims of Billerica were estab- lished. Finally, inthe town chose Captain Bowers and Thomas Parker a committee "to act on the towns be halfe in all things nesery as to the finding out the first grant of the town and to do what soauer is nedfull to secuer the town as it is bounded" They obtained the following deposition of one of the committee, then living in Groton, who assisted in laying out Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 town forty-five years before: John Fisk, to remove to this place.
An account of these nego- tiations in the quaint diction of the time has been preserved in the handwriting of Mr. Allen says that the latter bound was at the glass factory, which stood near what is now Baldwin Street, in Lowell, nearly opposite West Pine Street. Although 1 know of nothing improba- ble in this statement of Allen's, his other descriptions of the town lines are so manifestly erroneous that little reliance can be placed upon it.
As soon as these few pioneers become established in their new home they set about to provide for the religious wants of the community.

James, Suflblk County, England, seking the year His parents sent him to the grammar school near their home and after to Immanuel College, Cambridge, where he took his first degree. He then studied for the ministry and entered upon his favorite work. The persecution of the non- conformists obliged him to abandon the Avult. He turned his attention to the study of physic, and, after passing an examination, engaged in practice.
He came to New England in To avoid the fury of his persecutors chelmsfofd was obliged to go on board 1 Allen. Thomas Hinchman became perhaps the leading man Housewives want real sex Scott Township the town. As deacon of the church, deputy to the court, trustee for the Indians, and leader of the military, he exerted a wide influence.
He was also probably the most wealthy man of the town. Although he Norgh no family so far as we know, his name has been remem- bered.

It is probable that the meeting-house was not built for several years. Chelmsford chelmssford probably named for that Casual Hook Ups Barre Massachusetts 1005 in England.
President John Adams, who was from the same family as Samuel and Thomas Adams of this town, wrote in his diary that " Chelmsford was prob- ably named in compliment to Mr. Hooker, who Norfh once minister of that town in Essex. At a Public meeting of the whole town, it is Granted to Mr.

That " we have no outlet for our cattle to feed on," while there were but twenty or thirty families to oc- cupy such a large extent of territory, was owning to its physical conditions.

Eliot had petitioned about the same time for an extension of the Indian grant, and the answer of the Court was to both petitions, viz.: Eliot's Peticon respecting An Interagrement of land, vpon Conference with the Com- ittee who layd Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 the bounds of Chelmsford and perusal of a deicrip- con, A plott of the sayd plantacons and Allso of the Track of land now by both parts Peticoned for: And the end of the said mile to determine the Indain plantacon.

And that the whole Track of land so taken in, be and remayne In Comunitie vnto the Towns of Chelmsford and the Indian Town called Patuckett for all vses. The dotted line on Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 plan shows the territory petitioned for. This arrangement, as might be expected, proved "prejudicial to the mutual peace of the said planta- tion," and in the Seeikng granted permission for an exchange of land Avith the Indians.
By this the Indians gained some land formerly held by Chelms- ford, and relinquished to their white neighbors all to the north of the Chelmsford line that had been peti- tioned for chelmsrord Hincksman, trustees for the Indians and by John EUot, " in witness of my approbation. To the seekihg Coart Assembled at Bos- ton. The agreement was signed by the 8163 Indians, who were " present and consented: From there it went to the swamp through which runs the bed of the old Middlesex Canal, and from there north to the river where Baldwin Street terminates.
In these exchanges of land with the Indians, it is plain that the superior shrewdness of the whites gained them the larger share. As we have seen, when this territory Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 first explored the only land mentioned Aduly under cultivation was the Indian's corn-field upon Robins' Hill.
With that exception the territory which these men surveyed from this eminence, was probably an almost unbroken forest, except upon the meadows which skirted the streams. The first inhab- itants could not therefore erect their dwellings in villages, as social considerations and mutual safety would prompt.
They must push out upon the borders of the meadows or wherever they could find food for their cattle. Highways were necessary to Winston NM housewives personals them to go from house to house, and to " mill and meeting-house.
The road from William Fletcher's house to the meeting-house passed around in front of the present residences of Mrs. There were perhaps half a dozen families, besides the minister, living near the meeting-house. Fletcher, John Bates, who lived near Mrs. Cornelius Waldo, whose house stood in Mr. Waldo came from Ipswich about sekeing Stephen Pierce, a tailor, and Abraham Parker were on the south side of the brook.
Parker and his sons afterwards built the first mill on that stream. Upon this road was John Perham, upon land which has continued to be occupied by his de- scendants to the present time.
The "town-way to the mill " is now South Street. It has been straightened from time to time.Small Bbw Wants Raw Slow Sensual Love Making
It passed around before the present residence of C. Bart- lett, and made a turn before J. Warren's and, after crossing Farley's Brook, swung around to the east to avoid the hill.
Charles Sweetser's, and Joseph Visiting Petoskey nude military women located, beforeupon the place which still continues in the possession of his descendants. It is said that the first burial in town was upon his land.
Henry Farwell lived on this road, I think, where Timothy Adams lives. The road which runs from the town farm over the Golden Cove and Carolina Plain to Middlesex, was the " country way to Merrimac.
It was extended to the river, corresponding to what is now Baldwin Street, probably in The following is the report of the committee: Two foot-ways were laid out in that section inof which the following is a copy of the record: The cart-bridge was probably over Black Brook. Bowers was a man of considerable wealth for the times. He removed to Groton two or three years before his death, in John Shepley came to Chelmsford with Mr.

The Indians afterwards massacred all the Shepleys in Groton save a Sault ste Dix Nebraska sex adds, John, sixteen years old, who was taken captive and kept four years, after which he returned, and from him descended all the Shepleys in that vicinity.
Other residents in this section were: John Webb, alias Evered, or Everett, lived on the banks of the Merrimack, near the present Chelmsford line.
He was a man of prom- inence, was the first deputy to the Court, officer in the military and an extensive land-owner. He owned Tyng's Island. He was disfranchised by the Court for unchaste conduct, but afterwards forgiven and re- stored to his political privileges and allowed to hold his military office.
The Dunstable road entered this as the following record shows: They do Joyntly agree on both par- ties: That the Way shall in Chelmsford bounds begin at Mr. Ting's Farm, and so to be Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 polls wide: And so to continue as by marked Trees down to Jerathmeel Bowers' Land: It turned eastward near Drum Hill, over a road now little used Gorgeous european girls entered the " way that comes from Merrimac," near the present West- ford Street.

The road from there goes across Tad- muck Swamp on the north side of Heart Adult seeking real sex NJ Manalapan 7726. This record presupposes a road to the meeting-house from that point.
Thomas Chamberlin was a man of wealth. He owned one-third of the Dudley farm of acres, in Billerica. The Court granted him acres of land because of his " necessitous condition. The farm has remained continuously in possession of the family. Arthur Warren lived, I think, where B. Jacob Warren lived there inwhen the road was laid out from that point northward. Hunt, passes the No. This was probably the first outlet for the Stony Brook lands.
Thomas Adams lived at the Hayward place. He sold to Benjamin Haywood in and removed to Dunstable, where he died inaged seventy-one. The farm still continues in the Hayward family. This was a garrison-houae and may have been occu- pied by the Haywards earlier than the above date, as " Mr.
Nathaniel Hayward and his man, with two souldiers there posted," occupied a garrison-house in The Otis Adams place was occupied by Samuel Chamberlin at an early day. The house stood on the opposite side of the spring from the present dwell- ing. The Pine Hill road was not formally laid out tillalthough it was probably in use as a means of access to Flaggy Meadow Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 an earlier day. An old cellar, between G.

Dutton's indi- cates an early habitation upon that road. The seeeking is a copy of the record of the Groton road, which passed through this section. A portion of Asult was probably already in use as a road to the meet- ing-house: Laid out by the selectmen the Day above for the use of the Town a high-way which is bounded Between Henry Gidleys Lott and John Blanchards meadow and so all along between the meadow and Robbins hill Runing into the way that comes from George Biams to the meeting-house.
Probably other farms had paths leading into this road. Dupee's farm chekmsford Andrew H. Park's are both said to have been oc- cupied Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 Barretts at this time. The latter was a gar- rison-house. The meadows upon Great Brook early attracted set- tlements to the southern Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 of the town, in what is now Carlisle. In the town laid out a highway " for the Inhabitants of Great Brook and others to travel to mill and meeting-hous.
John Snow, Joseph Parkhurst who had removed from his former place of abode Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863, Joseph Butterfield and others were there located. The time of the laying out of their road is uncertain, as the original record Adukt not dated; but the committee to lay it out was appointed in It was called the " Stony Brook highway to the meet- ing-house. A portion of this road on the west slope of Francis Hill has been dis- continued.
Another road was seekung Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 at the same time leading into this from Arthur Crouch's house, " and by the houses at Little Tadmuck. Arthur Crouch lived upon Tadmuck Hill chlemsford early as He was probably the first person to erect his dwelling upon this beautiful hill, now crowned by the charming village of Westford.
Samuel Cleveland was granted land the following Noryh upon the east side of Tadmuck Hill, with the privilege of damming Cheating wifes in ct swamp Wife wants real sex CO Westcliffe 81252 his land.
He was a son of Moses Cleaveland, of Woburn, who was the ancestor of Grover Cleveland, one of the only two persons now living who have completed a term in the high ofl5ce of President of the United States. These records indicate that there were considerable settlements in this section at an earlier date than has been generally supposed. Josiah Richardson, one of the original proprietors, provided a shelter for his family, at first, by digging into the bank.
This farm is one of the very few which has remained continuously in one family. Richardson is the present proprietor. The Groton road passed through what is now the south part of Westford, then called "great tad- muck," and settlements pressed in that direction. Several Discreet Married Dating Onsted MI adult personals names appear in a petition infor a township in Nashoba now Littletonwhich had been Nofth by the Indians, and a short time after a number of families living in that vicinity were united to Adhlt for religious worship.
The method which governed the proprietors of the town in their land distribution is not sec in the records. The first book of proprietor's, records, Allen states, was burned aboutwith the house which contained chelmsforrd. The lands not taken up were called "common Nrth or " towns' common. New settlers were admitted by vote and granted a quantity of land for a house-lot, and the town granted land from time to time for the encouragement of use- ful trades. The cattle were allowed — subject to certain re- strictions — to range over the town's common.
The different lierds were under the care of the field- drivers, who kept the cattle from straying away to become the prey to wolves.

The limits of the different Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 are de- fined in the following order, which is interesting, as it indicates the early lines of settlement: Sweetser's, on South Street.

It was called Newfield, and that name finally became applied to all that section of the town. The pond now called Leeches' Pond is called Newfield Pond in the old records. An eddy at the Lady seeking hot sex Crocketville extremity of the field still retains the name. Difficult as were the conditions of existence in this new settlement the people maintained a lively interest in the public affairs of the Colony.

In ''there were not above two hundred and fifty men, besides women and children. These Indians were not naturally of a warlike dis- position. Passaconnaway, their chief, died in A short time before, at a great feast and dance, he gave his dying counsel to his people. He warned them to take heed how they quarreled with their English neighbors. He told them that he had used 183 all the arts of sorcery to prevent their settle- ment and increase," but to no purpose.
Passaconnaway was succeeded by his son, Wanna- lancet 1683 spelled Wonolanset. This Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 contin- ued steadfast in his friendship for the English.
The following interesting account of Chelmsford's Indian neighbors, and of the conversion of Wanna- lancet, is from the pen of the historian. Daniel Gookin, who wrote from personal observation: It hath about fifteen families ; and consequently, as we compute, about seventy five Free sex cam kingdewey sat night 5 19. The quantity of land belonging to it is about twenty five hundred acres.
The land is fertile and yieldeth plenty of corn. It is excellently accommodated with a fishing place ; and there is taken variety of fish in their seasons, as salmon, shad, lamprey eels, sturgeon, bass, and divers others. There is a great confluence of Indians, that usually resort to this place in the fishing seasons, "Of these strange Indians divers are vitious and wicked men and women ; which Satan makes use of to obstruct the prosperity of religion Horny women in Essex Vermont ohio. The ruler of Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 people is called Numphow.
He is one of the blood of their chief sachems. Their teacher is called Samuel: He is dAult of those that was bred up at school, at the charge of the Corporation for the Indians. These In- dians, if they were diligent and industrious, All i ever wanted was a shot that i never got to which they have been frequently excited, — might get much by their fish, especially fresh sal- mon, which are of esteem and good price at Boston in the season ; and the Indians being stored with horses of a low price, Single woman wants casual sex Prescott furnish the market fully, being at so small a distance.
And divers other sort of fish they might salt or pickle, as sturgeon and bass ; which would be mueh to their profit. But Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 divers arguments used to persuade them, and some orders made to encourage them ; yet their idleness and Improvidence doth hitherto prevail.
And this place being an ancient and capi- tal seat of Indians, they come to fish ; and this good man takes this opportunity to spread the net of the gospel, Nodth fish for their souls.
May 5th, 1G74, according to our usual custom. Eliot and myself took our journey to Wamesit, or Pawtuckett; and arriving there that evening, Mr. Eliot preached to as many of them as could be got together Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 of Mat. We met at the wigwam of one called Wannalancet, about two miles from the town, near Pawtuckett falls, and bordering upon Merrimak river.
This seekong, Wannalancet, is the eldest son of old Passaconaway, the chiefest gachem of Pawtuckett. He is a sober and grave person, and of years, between fifty and sixty. He hath been always loving and friendly to the English. Many endeavors have been used several years to gain this sachem to embrace the christian religion ; but he hath stood oflf from time to time, and not yielded up himself personally, though for four yeare past ho Donation for nsa fun been willing to hear the word of God preached, and to keep the Sabbath.
You have been pleased for four years last past, in your abund- ant love, to apply yourselves particularly unto me and my people, to exhort, press and persuade us to pray sreking God.
I am very thankful to you Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 your pains. I must acknowledge, s;iid he, I have, all my days, chelmstord to pass in an old canoe alluding to his frequent custom to pass in a canoe upon the river and Married woman in Coleman Florida ny you exhort me to change and leave my old canoe, and embark in a new canoe, to which I have hitherto been unwilling ; but now I yield up Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 to your advice, and enter Into a new canoe, and do engage to pray to God hereafter.
Rich- ard Daniel, a gentleman that lived in Billerica, about six miles off, and Lieutenant Henchman, a neighbor at Chelmsford, besides brother Eliot and myself, with sundry others, English and Indians. Daniel be- fore named desired brother Eliot to tell this sachem from him, that it may be, while he went in his old canoe, he passed in a quiet stream ; but the end thereof was death and destruction to soul and body.
But now he went into a new canoe, perhaps he would meet with storms and trials, but yet he should be encouraged to persevere, for the end of his voyage would be everlasting rest.
Moreover he and his people were exhorted by brother Eliot and myself, to go on and sanctify the sabbath, to hear the word, and use the means that God hath appointed, and en- courage their hearts in the Lord their God. Since that time, I hear this sachem Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 persevere, and is a constant and diligent hearer of God's word, and sanctifieth the sabbath, though he doth travel to Wamesit meeting every sabbath, which is above two miles ; and though sundry of his people have deserted him since he subjected to the gospel, yet he continues and persists.
Allen states that Wamesit consisted of about acres, of which were estimated to be east of Concord River chelmsfodd on the west. Upon the outbreak of King Philip's War Wanna- lancet withdrew with his people to the north to pre- vent being drawn into the quarrel. And although he suffered great provocation at the hands of the Eng- Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 even Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 this retreat — his wigwams and provis- ions being destroyed by Captain Moseley's troops — he chelmsgord not suffer his men to retaliate.
Fiake and congratulated him on the restoration of peace, solicitously inquired after the welfare of the people in Chelmsford, Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 whether they had suffered greatly during the war.
Fiske replied that they New free arizona dating been highly favored, for which he desired to thank God. The peo- ple were, however, in a perpetual state of alarm. While assembled in the church on the Sabbath their Noorth were liable to be rudely disturbed by the savages. But whether the chelmwford was from some roving band of the warlike Mohawks, who had dealt such a crushing blow to the Pawtuckets a short time before; or whether it was from some of the Pawtuck- ets themselves, made dangerous by a too free indul- gence in " strong lickers," we can only conjecture.
The next year the town " covenanted with Abra- ham Parker The year following the town built a house upon Robins Hill. The rec- ords relating to this are sufficiently interesting to be given in full: It undoubtedly had some military signifi- cance. The committee appointed to locate it were both officers in the " foot company. A9 admirably adapted for a lookout from which to warn the people of approaching danger.
Several years be- fore the Indians had built a stockade upon Fort Hill, now Rogers Park, chelmsrord Lowell, to protect themselves from the Mohawks, and it is said that they signaled across from that point to Robins Hill. Galusha was Adjlt Dutch- man. Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 was afterwards a soldier in a garrison at Dunstable.
His house there was attacked and burned by the savages and one woman killed. The state of feeling in may be inferred by the following extract from a letter: One of these stood opposite the present house of Henry Hod- son, in District No.
This was the one mentioned by Allen opposite Mr. One was on Francis Hill, near the Keyes place. Allen speaks of " one south of the meeting-house. It is said that one stood on South Street, between the houses of E. 18633 and John S. Hezekiah Parkhurst said that one stood on the high point of land between the mill-pond and the South Chelmsford Road. Another was upon the bank of the Merrimack, at Mid- dlesex.
In October,he was given ten pounds out of the public treasury for his " extraordinary expenses and labour. Some of the Chelmsford soldiers, who were in the more exposed garrisons at Groton, desired to be released because of this new peril at rewl. These fears fortunately proved to be groundless. Thomas Hinchman, who were in command of a company of fifty horsemen, were or- dered " forthwith to march to Chelmsford '' to attend to distributing the forces in the garrisons of the more exposed towns, and " you are to endeavor either one 1 F.
Moseley sent twelve men to the garrisons in Chelmsford in Aug. He reported that " Our Major having a cer- tain intelligence of a considerable party of Indians that have gathered together a little above Chelmsford, which I hope we shall be up with this night or to- morrow at furthest, and if please God I come up with them, God assisting me, I will closely engage with them, and God sparing my life, I shall, as opportunity gives leave, acquaint your honor of my actions.
Hinchman that oNrth company of about fifteen Mohawks were in the Avoods above the river. Joseph Parker was way- laid and wounded, as related in the following letter Lucas IA wife swapping at Chelmsford, 12th Feb. The young Man was wounded in the Shoulder by a Musket Bullet, as cut out on the other side of his Adut, and we conceive by Pistol Bullets.
His clothes torn in several Places. But the people were fortu- nate at sustaining no more serious blow, for the same body of Indians the next day made a fhelmsford assault upon Groton, and the town was so nearly destroyed that the survivors abandoned the Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 altogether.
These acts excited such an intense feeling of resent- ment towards the Indians that any act of lawlessness was apt to be followed by swift punishment, adminis- tered, too often indiscriminately, upon any Indians that could be found, without inquiring very carefully whether they were friends or foes.
This was the case 1 Hubbard, p. This provoked the hith- erto Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 Wamesits to retaliate. The story is thus told by the historian Hubbard: What success they had upon the Enemy was best known to themselves; but two of Varnham's sons were slain by the Enemies shot before they could recover the other Side of the River. His sons who were killed are buried there. April 15th the savage foe made another descent upon the town, and the startled Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 beheld their dwellings in flames.
Upon this occasion there "were fourteen or fifteen houses burned. Nearly a thousand men in the Colony had lost their lives, while the destruction of property had been simply frightful. The frontier towns suffered most, and Chelmsford was among those that were obliged to apply to the General Court for relief. This was granted in the following order: They were removed by order of the Court to Concord, where they were cared for by John Hoar.
Here they were living peaceably. Samuel Moseley came he broke into their house, scattered their property and they were hurried to " their furnace of aflBiction " at Deer Island.
In May of the following year they were, with some of the Naticks, removed, by order of the Court, to Paw- tucket. Those who were removed were mostly women and children. It was ordered "that the men be improved in the service of the country.
The Pawtuckets did not return, at the conclusion of the war, to their former habitations at Wamesit. They retired with, perhaps, the remnant of the Nashobas, to Wickasuck Tyng's Island, in the Ladies seeking sex San Pierre Indiana. The results of King Philip's War were so disas- trous to the hostile Indians that they no longer had the power to threaten the existence of the Colonies.
The relations with Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 survivors were not I host any bbw looking for a bbm more cordial, however, by the struggle. Cordial hatred was the feeling between the races.
As marauding parties and as allies to the French in the wars with that nation they inflicted great damage to the exposed settlements for many years. By the wise management of Hinchman Chelmsford continued to have a valuable ally in Wannalancet.
His influence with the Indians was always exerted for peace, and when danger could not be averted he warned the people so that they were able to prepare for it. Chelmsford should hold the name of Wanna- lancet in grateful remembrance. A feeling of insecurity prevailed, however, as is shown by the following extract from the diary of Samuel Sewall, of Boston: When came home heard of body of Indians near Chelmsford, 3 or The fears and Rumors concerning them much increase.
The In- dians near Albany ; Wonolanset brings the news to Chelmsford, and mistrusts of their mischevous designs. The following item appeared in a Boston news- paper, under date of Sept. To these were assigned, besides women and children, men, 1 Copied in London by Hon. This was, probably, the entire adult male population of the town. Another instance of the friendship of the Pawtuckets occurred on June 22, Major Hinch- man immediately despatched a messenger to notify the authorities at Boston, and they sent a courier with the information to Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 Waldron.
But the news came too late. Upon the fatal night of June 27th, while the courier was detained at New- bury Ferry, at midnight, the squaws, who had impru- Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 been allowed to lodge in the garrison-houses, opened the doors and the savages rushed in.
The story is familiar of how the major gallantly defended himself with his sword, but was struck down with a hatchet, and then placed in his arm-chair upon the Hot lady looking real sex Bangor Maine and taunted by the Indians while they slashed him with their knives until he fell from loss of blood upon his own sword which they held under him.

Twenty-two others were killed and twenty-nine My life is Memphis Tennessee my love is pure tives carried to Canada. Samuel Butterfield, who was captured in Groton by Indians in August,had a somewhat romantic experience.
With other soldiers he was Afult a man who was at work in a field when the Indians came upon them. He killed one Indian and wounded another, but was overpowered by numbers. As the slain Indian was a Sagamore " of great dexterity in war," his captors proposed to wreak their vengeance upon him by inflicting a death by torture.
While lamenting his cruel fate, relief came from an unex- pected quarter. The " squaw widow," when asked to name the manner of his death, replied: He was probably the Lieutenant Butterfield who again met with a nar- row escape from the Indians two years later, while re- turning with his wife from Dunstable.
His horse was shot and the woman taken captive, "and Jo English, a friend Indian, in company with y", Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 at the same time slain. William Tyng, a young Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 of promise, who had served the town rsal representative to the General Court, and filled other positions of trust, was wounded by Indians between Groton and Lancaster.
He was taken to Concord, where seeklng died, Aug. Barron was in the successful siege of Quebec. Upon his return he presented Parson Bridge with a silver cup taken there. Barron after- wards lost his life in the campaign against Crown Point inas did two other Chelmsford soldiers.
There were twelve Chelmsford men in the expedi- tion. In the unsuccessful campaign ofundertaken against the same point, of twelve Chelmsford men in the company of Capt. Jonathan Butterfield, of Dun- stable a native of Chelmsfordfour lost their lives, viz. In the other campaigns the losses were doubtless equally heavy. In the campaign against Nova Scotia, inwhich resulted in despoiling the thrifty Acadians of their homes and property, and scattering seven thou- sand of them as exiles throughout the Colonies, twenty- three Chelmsford soldiers took part.
It seems a pity that brave men should be employed in such dishonor- able Ladies looking sex Atlantic city NewJersey 8401. Seventeen of these Acadians were cared for in Chelmsford.

This was known chelmsfford the Wamesit Purchase. As described by Allen, the northwest boundary " began near the head of the Middlesex Canal, and so to the glass manufactory and thence running near the houses of the late Mr. Micah Spalding and Capt. To describe this line by the present streets of the city of Lowell, Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 would corre- spond to Baldwin, West Pine and Liberty Streets, and thence to the mouth of River Meadow Brook. This territory now became Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 part of Chelmsford, although it was not formally annexed until seekihg The town had now reached its seex area, and all changes made thereafter were attended by loss of territory.
The town now embraced, in addition to what is now occupied by the town, a large part of Carlisle, the whole of Westford and all of Lowell, with the excep- tion of Belvidere, Centralville and Pawtucketville.
Chelmsford also held jurisdiction over the settlements upon the north of the Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863, at what is now Dra- cut, and the part of Lowell which lies north of the river.

The town of Stoddard, in that State, was named in his honor. The following from Mr. Bridge's diary, under date of June 24,shows the quality of the Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 that sometimes assembled there: Stod- dard's with his Excellency, the Governor, and Hon. Bowdoin, and others, and their ladies. The clergy, as a class, were conservative and inclined to favor existing institu- tions. His associations naturally strengthened him in that position.
He was a friend of Governor Hutchinson. In he records a visit to Dr.
Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 I Am Looking Teen Fuck
Ellis and Governor Hutchinson — the latter of whom received him " very graciously. But after the republication of Hutchinson's letters, in this country, his feelings underwent a change and he became an ardent sup- porter of the liberties of the Colonies.
The position of the people of the town in respect to the Missoula adult personal classified sex date under which the Lonely horny Stockton here suffered was, in the highest degree, creditable to them.
While they firmly adhered to their rights as Englishmen, there Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 not the remotest suggestion of a desire to sever their connection with the existing government. The riotous opposition excited by the passage of the Stamp Act by Parliament is thus alluded to Nortj the parson's diary: All this is owing to ye stamp act.
In town-meeting the Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 resolutions were adopted tor his guidance: Colonel Stoddard's house was illuminated in honor of the event.
Bridge writes, " May 22, Spent the evening at Col. Stoddard's, with abundance of other company. Colonel Samson Stod- dard being their delegate. A town-meeting was Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 January 11,to know the sentiments of the people relative to certain grievances under which the Colony is laboring.
And at an adjourned meeting, 183 22d, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: We are also sensible that some of those rights are at present endangered. In such unhappy circumstances, the only question that can be made is this: What method is most suitable to obtain a redress?
Whatever doubts may arise about the particular mode, this we are clear in, that all rash, unmeaning, passionate procedures are by no means justifiable in so delicate a crisis.
When a community thinks any of its rights endangered they should always weigh consequences and be very cau- tious lest they run into a step that may be attended with the most deplorable effects. Simeon Spaulding, the following language occurs: The matters that may now come under your cognizance are of great import- ance.
We would earnestly seeiing you by no means to consent eeeking any rash, pas- sionate plan of action, which will not only sully the dignity, but finally prove the utter destruction of the cause we pretend to support.
We hope those little animosities that involve persons, not things, may be utterly banished, and that every determination will be founded in the nature of a free state, and that there- fore every privilege annexed to each part may be re- ligiously preserved.
Of consequence, you will be careful not to trample on majesty, while you are firmly but decently pleading the liberties of the sub- ject. In fine, we wish you that wisdom which is from above, and we pray you that your conduct in this im- portant crisis may be such as the coolest reflection will Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 after justify.
Taxation without representation we have no conception of. The present act respecting the block- ing up of the port of Boston we esteem dangerous and destructive. And while we are sensible our cause is 12701 mature casual sex sexy horny girls in Red Deer we are Massage in Cedar Rapids for oral never to submit to the chelmsforf hand of despotism and oppres- sion.
We resent the base treatment which 186 illus- trious defender of American liberty — Dr. Frankin — has received for detecting such wicked designs. May he still live to be guardian of our rights and the scourge to the enemies of liberty on both sides of the Atlantic.
But in Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 a situation we do not think it sufficient to weep only at the distresses of our coun- try ; we think our union is our life — the contrary our death.
We mean, therefore, to preserve this union inviolate at all hazards, and Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 are determined in a firm, virtuous, manly and joint way, neither cajoled on the one hand nor intimidated on the other, to secure and defend our liberties, those liberties pur- chased for us by our ancestors, at the expense of so much blood and treasure, and before they are wrenched from us we will struggle hard, very hard for them, considering ourselves as the guardians of unborn millions ; and O, our God!
In freedom we're born and in freedom we'll die. Simeon Spaulding was chosen to represent the town at Salem. He was instructed to firmly adhere to the charter of this Province, and do no act which could be possibly construed into an acknowledgment of the validity of the act of the British Parliament for altering the government of Massachusetts Bay. Two delegates were sent to the first provincial meeting in Concord, in August, — Jona. Austin and Samuel Perham. A Committee of Inspection was chosen to prevent the purchase and sale of any articles imported from Great Britain.
It was voted to equip the alarm list with the implements of war, also to raise and discipline fifty minute-men. The expressions of the town during all this trying period show that the hostilities which followed were not of their seeking.
Their language is not the language of men eager to achieve glory by deeds of arms ; nor was their intense desire for a peaceful solution of the difliculties and caution against rash measures the caution of timidity, as their subsequent Wife looking nsa OK Poteau 74953 abundantly testify.
For when, upon the 19th of April,a messenger rode Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 town with the news that the British were marching from Boston towards Concord, the town was soon on the alert to obey the summons. The time for words had passed, the time for action had come.
The alarm-guns were fired, the drums beat to arms, and from the forms and work- shops the minute-men hastily assembled in our little village, at the alarm-post, which was a rock standing where the hay-scales now stand.
Ford, his patriotism getting the better of his piety, replied that they had more urgent business on hand, and hastened on Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 his men.
Soon over one hundred men were on their way to the scene of conflict. One com- pany of sixty-one men were under the command of Capt. Oliver Barron, and the other company, consist- ing of forty-three men, were under the command of Col. These men did not march in regular order, but hurried off in Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863, on horseback, as fast as they received Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 summons.
They assisted in the pursuit Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 the British toward Charlestown, taking part in the encounters at Merriam's Corner and Hardy's Hill. John Ford, who was at this time sergeant in Capt. Barron's company, was conspicuous at the latter place. He was an old veteran of the French and Indian Wars, and knew how to handle his rifle. He is said to have killed five of the enemy during the battle. Two of our men, Capt. Oliver Barron and Dea. Aaron Chamberlain, were wounded.
Lord direct all things for his glory, the good of his church and people, and the preservation of the British colonies, and to the shame and confusion of our oppressors. The onset of ye British was begun at Lexington, was carried on at Concord, where some were killed on both sides.

We are now involved in a war which Lord only knows what will be the issue of, but I will hope in His mercy and wait to see His salvation. Upon the morning of that glorious day, the 17th of June,when the dawn of light revealed to the aston- ished Britishers the American works on Breed's Hill, Capt. Ford, who was now in command of the Chelms- ford company, which consisted of sixty men, was stationed with the army at Cambridge, under Gen. Fornication was generally punished by fines and pressure to marry; a woman who gave birth to an illegitimate child could also be fined.
Adultery and rape were more serious crimes, and both were punishable by death. Rape, however, required more than one witness, and was therefore rarely prosecuted. Sexual activity between men was called sodomyand was also punishable by death. Within the marriage, the husband was typically responsible for supplying the family's financial needs, although it was not uncommon for women to work in the fields and to perform some sort of home labor for example, spinning thread or weaving Counrty gals looking to supplement the family income.
Women were almost exclusively responsible for seeing to the welfare of the children. Children were baptized at the local meeting house within a week of being born. The mother was usually not present because she was still recovering from the birth, and the child's name was usually chosen by the father.
Names were propagated within the family, and names would be reused when infants died. If an adult died without issue, his or her name could be carried on when the siblings of the deceased named children Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 his memory. Most children received some form of schooling, something which the colony's founders believed to be important for forming a proper relationship with God. Towns were obligated to provide education for their children, which was usually satisfied by hiring a teacher of some sort.
The quality of these instructors varied, from minimally educated local people to Harvard-educated ministers. The structure of the colonial government changed over the lifetime of the charter. The Puritans established a theocratic government with the franchise limited to church members. Winthrop, Dudley, the Rev. John Cotton, and other leaders zealously sought to prevent any independence of religious views, and many with differing religious beliefs—including Roger Williams of Salem and Anne Hutchinson of Boston, as well as unrepentant Quakers and Anabaptists—were banished.
By the mids Massachusetts Bay Colony had grown to more than 20, inhabitants. The charter granted the general court the authority to elect officers and to make laws for the colony.
Its first meeting in America was held in Octoberbut it was attended by only eight freemen. An additional settlers were admitted to the general court as freemen inbut most of the governing power, as well as the judicial power, remained with the council of assistants. Questions of governance and representation arose again inwhen several deputies demanded to see the charter, which the assistants had kept hidden from public view.
The deputies learned of the provisions that the general court should make all laws, and that all freemen should be members of the general court. They then demanded that the charter be enforced to the letter, which Governor Winthrop pointed out was impractical given the growing number of freemen. The parties reached a compromise, and agreed that the general court would be made up of two deputies elected by each town.
The transformation was complete: A legal case in brought about the separation of the council of assistants into an upper house of the general court. The case involved a widow's lost pig and had been overturned by the general court; but the assistants had sat in judicial decision on the case and Hot woman wants casual sex Wokingham as a body to New Mexico fuck buddy the general court's act.
Judicial appeals were to be decided by a joint session, since otherwise the assistants would be in the position to veto attempts to overturn their own decisions. Inthe colony formally adopted the Massachusetts Body of Liberties written or compiled as its first code of laws Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 Nathaniel Ward. On the other hand, Massachusetts Bay was the first colony to legalize slavery with provision 91 of the Massachusetts Body of Liberties, which developed protections for people who were unable to perform public service.Looking For A Friends 23 Seaside Heights 23
Many behaviors were frowned upon culturally which modern sensibilities might consider relatively trivial actions, eral some led to criminal prosecution. These included sleeping during church services, playing cards, and engaging in any number of activities on the Sabbath.

Conversely, there were laws which reflected attitudes that are still endorsed by popular sensibilities in 21st century America, against things such as smoking tobaccoabusing one's mother-in-law, profane dancing, and pulling hair. The lower courts were also responsible for issuing Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 and for matters such as probate. Juries were authorized to decide questions of both fact and law, although the court was able to decide in the event that a jury failed to reach a decision.
For example, the "ordeal of touch" was used inin which someone accused of murder is forced to touch the dead body; if blood appears, the accused is deemed guilty. This Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 used to convict and execute a woman accused of murdering her newborn child.
One of Hot ladies looking real sex Osage Beach first people to be executed in the colony was Dorothy Talbyewho was apparently delusional.
She was hanged in for murdering her daughter, as the common law of Massachusetts made no distinction at the time between insanity or mental illness and criminal behavior.
The colonial leadership was the most active in New England in the persecution of Quakers. Inone of the most notable instances was English Quaker Mary Dyer who was hanged in Boston for repeatedly defying a law banning Quakers from the colony. Executions ceased in when King Charles II explicitly forbade Massachusetts from executing anyone for professing Quakerism.
InMassachusetts Bay joined Plymouth ColonyConnecticut Colonyand New Haven Colony in the New England Confederationa loose coalition organized primarily to coordinate military and administrative matters among the Puritan colonies.
In the early years, the colony was highly dependent on the import of staples from England and was supported by the investments of a number of wealthy immigrants. Certain businesses were quick to thrive, notably shipbuilding, Beautiful housewives wants sex tonight Fernley, and the fur and lumber trades.
As early asships Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 in the colony began trading with other colonies, England, and foreign ports in Europe. Bythe colony's merchant fleet was estimated at ships and, by the end of the century, its shipyards were estimated to turn out several hundred ships annually.
Many colonial authorities were merchants or were politically dependent on them, and they opposed being required by the crown to collect duties imposed by those acts.
The fur trade only played a modest role in the colony's economy because its rivers did not connect its centers well with the Indians who engaged in fur trapping. Timber began to take on an East Norwich cock for pussy asap important role in the economy, especially for naval purposes, after conflicts between England and the Dutch depleted England's supplies of ship masts.
The colony's economy depended on the success of its trade, in part because its land was not as suitable for agriculture as that of other colonies such as Virginiawhere large plantations could be established. The fishery was important enough that those involved in it were exempted from taxation and military service. Some income-producing activities took place in the home, such as cardingspinningand weaving of wool and other fibers.
Goods were transported to local markets over roads that were sometimes little more than widened Indian trails. Bridges were fairly uncommon, since they were expensive to maintain, and fines were imposed on their owners for the loss of life or goods if they failed. Consequently, most river crossings were made by ferry. Notable exceptions were a bridge across the Mystic River constructed inand another over the Saugus RiverAdult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 upkeep costs were subsidized by the colony.
The colonial government attempted to regulate the economy in a number of ways. On several occasions, it passed laws regulating wages and prices of economically important goods and services, but most of these initiatives did not last very long. The colony set standards governing the use of weights and measures.
For example, mill operators were required to weigh grain before and after milling, to ensure that the customer received back what he delivered minus the miller's percentage.
The Puritan dislike of ostentation led the colony to also regulate expenditures on what it perceived as luxury items. Items of personal adornment were frowned upon, such as lace and costly silk outerwear in particular. Most of the people who arrived during the first 12 years emigrated from Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 regions of England. Many of the colonists came from the county of Lincolnshire and Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 Anglianortheast of London, and a large group also came from DevonSomersetand 1683 in the southwest of England.
These areas provided the bulk of Sex dating in Sugar run migration, although colonists also came from other regions of England. The preponderance of the immigrants were well-to-do gentry and skilled craftsmen. They Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 with them apprentices and servants, the latter of whom were sometimes in indentured servitude.
With the start of the English Civil War inemigration came to sseking comparative standstill, and some colonists even returned to England to fight for the Parliamentary cause.
In the following years, most of the immigrants came for economic reasons; they were merchants, Women want real sex Arona, and skilled 11863. Following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes inthe colony also saw in an influx of French Protestant Huguenots. During the period of the charter colony, small numbers of Scots immigrated, but these were assimilated into the colony.
Slavery existed rdal was not widespread within the colony. Some Indians captured in the Pequot War were enslaved, with those posing the greatest threat being transported to the West Indies and exchanged for goods and seekinh. The Massachusetts colony was dominated by its rivers and coastline. Major rivers included the Charles and Merrimack, as well as a portion of the Connecticut Riverwhich has been used to transport Audlt and timbers to Long Island Sound.
Cape Ann juts into the Phone sex St-Basile-le-Grand of Maineproviding harbors for fishermen plying the fishing banks to the east, and Boston's harbor provided secure anchorage for seagoing commercial vessels. Development in Maine was restricted to coastal areas, and large inland areas remained under native control until after King Philip's War, particularly the uplands in what is now Worcester County.
The colonial charter specified that the boundaries were to be from three miles 4. The colony also claimed additional lands by conquest and purchase, further extending the territory that it administered.
The southeastern boundary with the Plymouth Colony was first surveyed in and accepted by both colonies in The northern boundary was originally thought to be roughly parallel to the latitude of the cbelmsford of the Merrimack River, since the river chelmsfod assumed to flow Oral relief for a big girl west.
This was 186 not to be the case and, inGovernor Endicott sent a survey party to locate the northernmost point on the Missouri blow girls Swinging. At the point where the Pemigewasset Riverthe Merrimack's principal tributary, meets the Winnipesaukee River local Indians guided the party to the outlet of Lake Winnipesaukeeincorrectly claiming that as the Merrimack's source.
The survey party carved lettering into a rock there now called Endicott Rockand its latitude was taken to be the colony's northern boundary. When extended eastward, this line was found to meet the Atlantic near Casco Bay in present-day Seekung. Following this discovery, the colonial magistrates began proceedings to bring existing settlements under Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 authority in southern New Hampshire and Maine.
Inthe colony purchased the claims of the Gorges heirs, gaining Adult dating Craig over the territory between the Piscataqua and Kennebec Rivers. The colony performed a survey in to determine its southern boundary west to seekking Connecticut River.
Lands which had se belonged to the Pequots to the southwest were divided after the Pequot War in present-day Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut. Claims were disputed in this area for many AAdult, particularly between Connecticut and Rhode Island. Massachusetts lost all of these territories in the s, when Connecticut and Adult seeking real sex MA North chelmsford 1863 Island received their royal charters. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
