Samuel Allen Sr.1

b. 1632, d. 1703
Birth*1632Samuel Allen Sr. was born in 1632 probably in Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1
Marriage*He married Sarah Partridge.1
Biographical Info*1660Samuel was a Deacon and settled in East Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony), as early as 1660. He was the town's second Town Clerk and was greatly responsible for the completeness and perfection of the records genealogists are still enjoying today.1
(Witness to Agreement) Land Records20 May 1701Samuel Allen and Comfort Willis were witnesses to an agreement to resolve a difference of opinion between neighbors John Bolton and Israel Alger regarding the bounds between their lands in Bridgewater on 20 May 1701. A note, which appeared to this researcher to have been added later, stated that errors in measuring by the "box rule" needed to be rectified.2
(Lands Committee) Land Records22 December 1702Josiah Edson, Samuel Allen Sr. and Edward Fobes served on a committee to resolve the bounds between the houses of John Bolton in Bridgewater and his neighbor Israel Alger. On 22 December 1702, the committee measured the land by the box rule measure and set up bounds between the neighbors. At the northeasterly end was a black oak marked on four sides, and about in the middle of the length, a stake and stones, and at the southwesterly end, near the river, a stake and stones. Israel Alger had already cleared about one acre of swamp woods that was going to fall within John Bolton's land, so the committee agreed that Israel Alger should have the grass on it for four years more from the above date.3
Will*1703Samuel Allen Sr. left a will in 17031
Death*1703 and also died in 1703.1

John Ames

d. circa 1698
Father*Richard Ames1
Immigration1635It is believed that Thomas Hayward, who came from Aylsford, Kent, England, and John Ames both arrived in America in 1635 on the ship Hercules and settled first in Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Both men were early proprietors in Bridgewater, also in Plymouth County. John's brother William Ames may also have arrived on the same ship, settling in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts as early as 1640.2,3
Marriage*1645He married Elizabeth Hayward, who was probably a sister of Thomas Hayward, in 1645 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).1
(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656John Ames was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. John Ames was among those few relocating from Duxbury to make his home in Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share. To view the complete list of Bridgewater's Original Proprietors, click on the PDF icon; the photo icons lead to four early maps of the Bridgewater settlement.4,5,6,7,8
(Brother-Possible) Relationship NoteSarah Ames's family has not yet been determined. We wonder, though, if she may have been a relative, perhaps a sister, of brothers William and John Ames and William Ames. The Ames and Hayward men, and possibly their sisters and other family members, arrived in New England together on the same ship and there is evidence that the families interacted in both Duxbury and Bridgewater after arriving in America. Additionally, Elizabeth Hayward, the "probable sister" of Sarah's husband Thomas Hayward Esq. married John Ames, one of the Ames brothers who sailed from England with the Thomas Hayward family.
(Uncle) Relationship NoteIn Bridgewater, John, the son of William Ames was known as John Jr., likely to distinguish him from his uncle John Ames who may also have become his guardian after William's death. John Jr. was his Uncle John's heir.
No Issue*John and Elizabeth had no children.1
Estate*He left a large estate which he gave by deeds to his nephew John, "son of his brother William of Braintree, and to the sons of his said nephew."1
Death*circa 1698He died circa 1698.1
