Misc. Notes

He came to New England and settled at Rowley, Mass. where the first record of him was on 10 Jan 1643/4 when, in a survey of the town, he is shown as having 4-1/2 acres of upland laid out at the Great Plain. He does not appear on the list of those who had house lots at that time. A little later he was shown as having 3 acres laid out for him in Crane Meadow.166

He was on the lists in 1650 as having two oxen and one calf. He had some small land parcels and by Feb. 1661 had acquired 7 and 1/4 gates, or cattle rights, in the town commons, a good number for those times. He received a share in the Hog Island marshes when they were divided and laid out in 1667, also other land parcels from time to time.

On Jan 3 1650/1, at a town meeting, he was chosen one of the four overseers whose duties were to oversee the execution of town orders and highways. He was chosen again in five later years and was a selectman in 1669, and served on jury and other court duties.

An inventory of his estate taken 24 Sep 1683 totalled L374, 4s, 3d. It included his home lot, house, buildings, and land, 15 other parcels of land of from 1 to 60 acres totally 127 acres, 2 pair oxen, 3 horses, cattle, pigs and sheep, and the usual tools, household items, etc. There were no special tradesman’s tools which indicated that he was a farmer.148 167 168 88 169 11, No. 74, pg. 120, 1920

“The origin of this family beyond the sea has not been traced. Recent information locates a family bearing the name in Newcastle-on-Tyne, in the last century, and possibly the fact may afford a clue to the English home of the Puritan Edward.

1. Edward Hazen was the immigrant ancestor. The first mention of the name, which has been found, occurs in the records of Rowley. “Elizabeth, wife of Edward Hassen, was buried 1649 Sept. 18.” He was a man of substance and influence in the town; was overseer or Selectman in 1650, 1651, 1654, 1660, 1661, 1665 and 1668, and judge of delinquents 1666. In the records of surveys, Feb. 4, 1661, he appears entitled to “seven gates.” These related to cattle rights on the town commons; the average number being three, and no one had more than seven. The inventory of his estate amounted to L404:7:8.

Of his first wife, Elizabeth, nothing is known; or where or how long they had been married.

He married (2) in March, 1650, Hannah, dau. of Thomas and Hannah Grant. He was buried in Rowley, July 22, 1683. His widow m.

Feb. 1715-16.”165

He was a man of substance and influence in the town; was overseer of the poor, or selectman, in 1650-51-54-60-61-65-68, and a magistrate in 1666.

EDWARD HAZEN

ROWLEY, MASSACHUSETTS

(1647-1683)

Edward Hazen was born in Cadney, Lincolnshire, England where he was baptized on December 14, 1614. He was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Hazen.

We have not determined the exact date of arrival nor the ship on which Edward arrived. First mention of him is in a 1647 Rowley land transaction granting him three acres of meadow lying on the south east side of John Smith’s meadow. We know he had a wife Elizabeth who died at Rowley September 18, 1649, but nothing more is known about her. He married again in March of 1650 to Hannah Grant, daughter of Thomas and Jane Grant. This couple, along with their four children, came from England in 1638.

By 1661 Edward Hazen had attained a relatively high degree of prosperity. He was also a man of influence and importance. Beginning in 1650, at a town meeting, he was chosen as one of the four overseers. This was repeated in 1651, 1654, 1660, 1661 & 1662. In I669 he was chosen as a selectman. He served on Trial Jury at times and was later chosen one of the four judges.

Edward died at Rowley and was buried on 22 July 1683. His widow married Lt. George Browne in 17 March 1683/84 at Haverhill. Lt. Browne adopted her youngest son, Richard Hazen. Hannah died at Haverhill in February 1715/16.

At least two of Edward’s sons took part in King Philip’s War and many descendants served in the Revolutionary War.
