< Is there anything there about the Eddy family?
Starting with Samuel 1605-1687 married Elizabeth Savory. >>
Charles Henry Pope's "Pioneers of Massachusetts" says this:
EDDY, EDDIE, EDY, EEDY
Samuel, Plymouth, taxed 1632; frm 1633; atba. 1643. Land grant 1636.
Placed his son John (7 years old Dec. 25, 1644) appr. with Francis Goulder,
April 3, 1645, and "having many children and many wants<" placed son Zechery
[this is the way it is spelled in Pope's book] (7 years old) with Mr. John
Browne of Rehoboth, 2 March, 1646-7. Wife Elizabeth; ch. rec.: Hannah b.June
Thomas, came in the Mary and John March 24, 1633-4; settled at Plymouth;
one of the party at Kennebec, in the Hocking affair in 1634. In Plymouth
Court 5 Oct. 1636. Marshall, 1652. Before Gen Court at Boston in 1638 and
1640. Sold a house about 16 Sept. 1641. Suit for a canoe, Plymouth Court,
1646. He re'd beq. from Timothy Hatherly, his employer, in 1644. He placed
his son Thomas, age 5 years, apprentice to Thomas Lettice, carpenter, 2 Aug.
1653, and Benjamin, age 9 years, with John Shaw 3 Nov. 1653.
Moses, b. 22 Jan. 1649, d. 9 June 1650
Samuel, b. 4 June 1641
Jonathan, b. 4 March, 1652
Mara, b. 7 April 1654.
Wife Annis. [This is the way it was spelled in Pope's book.]
Will dated April, 1674, prob. 7 March, 1676, beq. to wife Anne, she to
consider son Aaron at her decease. She deeded in 1677-8 to sons Anthony and
Aaron, land her husband obtained of their bro-in-law Samuel Eddy.
The above information leaves a lot of questions about the family life of
these two men. Just what was going on at home to make it necessary to bound
out a five year old as an apprentice carpenter, do you suppose? Wouldn't it
be great if we could only know the whole stories?
