Samuel Packard with his wife, Elizabeth, and a daughter left Ipswich on the Ship Diligent on June 1638. They arrived in Boston Harbor on August 10, 1638. They immediately went to Hingham. They were in Hingham in 1652, when his daughter Deliverance was baptised. The family then moved to Weymouth where Samuel was a Selectman from 1654 to 1664 and some of his children were born in Weymouth. Then they settled in Bridgewater, Massachsuetts about 1664 where he was appointed Constable. Samuel purchased land in Bridgewater before August 1662. He was Collector of Minister's Rates in 1670, Surveyor of Highways in 1672, and Constable again in 1674. In 1671 Samuel was licensed to keep an ordinary (tavern) which he had in 1670. Since Samuel signed with a mark, this suggests that he could not write. This may be why some early records show the name as Packer.

From http://www.mayflowerfamilies.com/cooke/d31.htm#P123

Samuel (1) PACKARD(2346) was born about 1612 in Windham, England.(2347) History of North Bridgewater, Plymouth County,Massachusetts, From Its First Settlement To The Present Time With Family Registers. By Bradford Kingman. Published by the author,

Boston, 1866

"Samuel Packard, wife and child, came from Windham, near Hingham, England, in the ship""Diligence," of Ipswich, John Martin, master.There were 133 passengers. He first settled in Hingham, Mass, in

1638; from thence he removed to West Bridgewater. He was a constable and tavern-keeper. All of this name who have gone from the Bridgewaters were probably descendants of his, and, in fact, nearly

all of the name in this country can be traced to that place. There have been a variety of ways in which the name has been written; namely, Pecker, Packer, Peckard, Peckerd; but the usual and proper

name is Packard."

The above is basically reflected as the same in Mitchell's History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater, Baltimore 1970, Gateway Press.

He emigrated in 1638 from Hingham MA.(103) (2348) (2349) He died on 11 Jul 1684 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Co, MA. (2350)

Records show Samuel owned a grant of land in 1638 at Hingham. He removed with his wife, Elizabeth, about 1660 from Hingham to Bridgewater, Mass. with their twelve children, Elizabeth, Samuel Jr., Zaccheus, Thomas, John, Nathaniel, Mary, Hannah, Israel, Jael, Deborah, and Deliverance.

That he first lived in Hingham and lastly in Bridgewater is generally recognized, but most accounts have him moving directly from the former to the later. However, he moved from Hingham to Weymouth, where he was a Selectman from 1654 to 1664 and at least two of his children were born. He was still in Hingham in 1652 when his daughter, Deliverance, was baptized, but must have moved soon thereafter.

Samuel was not an original proprietor of Bridgewater, who were all from Duxbury, but he purchased land from them before August 1662, when he was appointed to a group to lay out highways. He was an active member of the town, being Collector of Minister's Rates in 1670, Surveyor of Highways in 1672, and Constable again in 1674. He was licensed to keep an "ordinary" (tavern) in 1671. He died there 7 November 1684, and his will, dated 29 October 1684

In 1667 he served on the committee to lay out streets at Bridgewater. He was made constable in 1664, and licensed to operate a Tavern--Hotel in 1670.

In 1682 he with four sons was named amoung 80 Proprietors of Bridgewater. Bridgewater was taken from Duxbury and deeded to Miles Standish, Constant Southworth and Samuel Nash in 1649.

All of Samuel's sons are said to have served as soilders in the Indian Wars of 1675 and 1676. There is a discrepancy in the records for Samuel's death date. Some show it to be 7 April 1684, however his last 'Will' was dated 29 October 1684. Others list his death date as 7 November 1684. Elizabeth remarried after Samuel's death, to John Washburn, 1685/6.

Packard Poem

Poem by Mrs. Nethiah Hayward Thayer

The Packards have gathered from near and far.

Father and mother and dear grandmama.

From Samuel we came, his name honored be.

A more goodly race not often you'll see.

The lineal descent oft puzzled us sore.

For Packards and Howards were mixed o'er and o'er.

Now 'tis not Howard, Packard, and Jones.

But Packards with Porter, Glover, and Holmes

Goodly the race is that answers the call

To the name of Packard. B.W. and all.

We honor the fathers who fought, bled, and died.

No less, we honor these here by our side.

Davis and Moses and Winslow, we know.

Direct are from Samuel, who faced the foe;

Liberty, Wallace, Fred, and Josiah.

Martin and Robert. Ben and Uriah.

George A. -- from the Heights all ready for fun.

Andrew and Elmer, we know every one;

They are here from the East, here from the West:

They are known unto us as good, better, and best.

And DeWitt is here, and Caleb near by;

They are Brockton's jewels, we all testify;

Horace the doctor, and Ransom the strong.

Henry B. and Fred come marching along.

Simeon the aged, and Franklin his son.

Willard and Edmund -- but we are done.

Name after name comes to mind.

To speak of them all no space we could find.

One word for the girls, the good Packard girls;

We seem them to-day with crimps and with curls.

The name they have lost, but loyal are still,

And never were known to do what was ill.

Adaline is here, well known to the fold

As our sweetest singer in times now old:

Josiah's daughter we see here to-day.

Her pills and her pellets all cast away.

Our history fails to mention the name

Of Samuel's wife, who has little fame;

We honor her too. She clothed and she fed.

Twelve children to her their daily prayers said.

Their old-fashioned names not all of us know,

But they were trained the right way to go.

Years passed away, the race multipled,

From coast to coast the Packards abide.

Our fathers are gone, their places we fill.

The acres they left we have them to till.

They left us the school, gave us Church and State;

These we will cherish, whatever our fate.

We bless our dear fathers, yes, every one;

Filial the heart of each daughter and son.

We meet here to-day glad praises to sing--

Praises to God, our Maker and King!

This poem was from a past Packard Celebration.

Samuel Packard (GeorgeA) baptized 17-Sep-1612 Stonham Aspal, Suffolk, England; died 07-Nov-1684 Bridgewater.

    He married Elizabeth; born probably Suffolk, England; died after 27-Oct-1694. She married 2nd after 07-Nov-1684 (1st husband's death) and before 27-Oct-1686 (2nd husband's will as his 2nd wife John Washburn; baptized 26-Nov-1620 Bengeworth, Worcester, England; died 12-Nov-1686 Bridgewater. This marriage is confirmed by a 27-Oct-1694 deed from Elizabeth. Note: There is no evidence to support the often repeated conjecture that her surname was "Stream." Elizabeth's surmane does not appear in any records and Stream was not a usual surname in East Anglia.
    Samuel, his wife and their eldest child came on the Diligent, which sailed from Ipswich, England Jun-1638 and arrived in Boston 10-Aug-1638, under Master John Martin and carrying about 100 passengers. The family was said on the passenger list to be "from Windham" in Norfolk. This is undoubtedly an error for Wymondham. Many of the early settlers of Hingham in the Bay Colony came from Hingham, Norfolk, England. Some of those settlers or their families have documented ties to Wymondham, Norfolk, which is about five miles east of Hingham, Norfolk, and about ten miles southwest of the shire town of Norfolk. There seems to be no record of Samuel or his family in Wymondham so that may have been just a gathering place for some of the Diligent passengers.
    The Packards settled first in Hingham, and about 1654 removed to Weymouth where Samuel was Selectman 1654-64. The family removed to Bridgewater about 1664. Samuel had purchased land from the original proprietors there by 1662 when he was named in a list of land owners. He was a constable in 1664 and 1674, surveyor of highways in 1667 and 1672, and collector of Minister's Rates in 1671. He was licensed to keep an "ordinary" 08-Mar-1671, and was assesed a 20s. fine for selling liquor to the Indians, but was freed from paying that fine in 1673. He was allotted ten acres of woodland in 1686.
    In his will dated 29-Oct-1684 Samuel named his wife Elizabeth Packard; eldest son Samuel Packard; sons Zaccheus Packard, John Packard and Nathaniel Packard; grandchild Israel Alger; daughters Mary Phillips wife of Richard Phillips, Hannah Randall wife of Thomas Randall, Jael Smith wife of John Smith, Deborah Washburn wife of Samuel Washburn and Deliverance Washburn wife of Thomas Washburn; grandchild Deliverance Alger; and grandchildren Samuel Packard, Daniel Packard son of Samuel Packard, Israel Packard son of Zaccheus Packard and Caleb Phillips son of Caleb Phillips [Bowman's published transcription of the will reads "son of Caleb Phillips," but he was the son of Richard Phillips]. It named wife Elizabeth Packard and son Samuel Packard as executors, and James Keith and William Brett as overseers. The will was signed by mark and witnessed by John Field, John Ames Jr. and Shadrack Wilbore. On 03-Mar-1684/85 the first two witnesses testified that when Samuel signed and sealed his will he declared that he intended Thomas Washburn to be a joint executor with the two executors named in the will, which the court allowed. The inventory of Samuel's estate was dated 07-Nov-1684, mentioned no real estate and totalled £133, 6s., 6d. as appraised by Mark Lathrop and John Field on 11-Nov-1684. Samuel Packard Jr. swore to the inventory at court in Plymouth on 05-Mar-1684/85.
Children (Packard):

2 i Mary born about 1637 probably England.

3 ii Elizabeth baptized 19-Jul-1646 Hingham.

4 iii Samuel baptized 19-Jul-1646 Hingham.

5 iv Hannah baptized 19-Jul-1646 Hingham.

6 v Israel baptized 19-Jul-1646 Hingham; named a militia trooper 1671; no further record. It is often supposed that he was killed in King Philip's War, but this is belied by the claim that no one from Bridgewater died in that war.

7 vi Jael born about 1647 probably Hingham.

8 vii Deborah born about 1648 probably Hingham.

9 viii Zaccheus baptized 20-Apr-1651 Hingham.

  	ix    	Jane baptized 20-Apr-1651 Hingham; probably died young.
  	x    	Abigail  baptized 20-Apr-1651 Hingham; probably died young.

10 xi Deliverance baptized 11-Jun-1652 Hingham.

11 xii Thomas2 born about 1653 probably Hingham.

12 xiii John2 born 20-Jul-1655 Weymouth.

13 xiv Nathaniel2 born about 1657 probably Weymouth.

--------------------

Samuel Packard of Wymondham, Norfolk sailed from Ipswich, with wife and child, in June 1638, on the "Diligent", arriving in Boston on 10 August. He went to Hingham until about 654 when he removed to Weymouth, where he was a Selectman from 1654 to 1664. He then removed to Bridgewater where he was appointed Constable in 1664, Collector of Minister's Rates in 1670, Surveyor of Highways in 1672, and again Constable in 1674. In 1671 he received the first license to keep an 'ordinary'. Will dated 29 Oct. 1684.

Samuel Packard of Bridgewater, Massachusetts, and His Family, by Karle S. Packard

I. Introduction

Samuel Packard, long considered the progenitor of most of the Packards in the

United States, was one of the early settlers of Bridgewater, Massachusetts.

The Packard family was one of the leading families in that area, and

descendants who can be traced to this source have spread throughout the

country. The earliest published source for an account of this family is that

by Nahum Mitchell in 1840 in History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater.

Unfortunately, Mitchell's account has numerous errors, many of which have been

accepted uncritically by subsequent authors, and these later authors have

introduced additional errors, thereby compounding the confusion. The writings

have not been at what is now considered an acceptable level of genealogical

scholarship. The result is that there is no reliable and comprehensive account

of the early generations of the Packard family in America. This situation was

articulated in a recent letter from Barbara Rice in the August 1990 issue of

Packard's Progress, decrying the contradictions found in various sources. To

partially remedy this situation, this brief summary of the known facts, with

probable conclusions, is offered here.

II. Samuel Packard's Ancestry

As a result of the research of Brig. J. John Packard of London we can now be

reasonably sure that our Samuel Packard was the third son of George and Mary

(Wyther) Packard, baptized 17 September 1612 in Stonham Aspal, Suffolk,

England. This conclusion is presumptive, but is based on the fact that no

other Samuel Packard of an appropriate age has been found in East Anglia, and

this Samuel is not present in later English records, an indication that he

went to America. Our Samuel is next found in the record of Daniel Cushing, the

town clerk of Hingham, Massachusetts, where he is listed among those arriving

10 August 1638 at Boston on the Diligent of Ipswich, which left Ipswich in

June.2 He came with wife, Elizabeth, and a child, and was said to be "from

Windham" (Wymondham) in Norfolk. This group of colonists settled in Hingham

and we find further records of Samuel and his family there. Why and for how

long Samuel was in Wymondham or its vicinity we do not know, nor has there

been any success in finding some record of him there despite many attempts,

but it is no longer reasonable to infer, because he was "from Wymondham," that

this locality is likely to be the chief source of information on his early

life in England.

III. Samuel Packard's Wife

	One major issue is the maiden surname of Samuel's wife, Elizabeth, which

does not appear in any of the known records. Efforts have been made to find a

marriage record for Samuel in both Suffolk and Norfolk parish registers, but

without success.

In the very recent past someone has suggested that her maiden surname might

have been Stream, and, unfortunately, this has been accepted uncritically by

some, without any supporting evidence. Brig. J. J. Packard has pointed out

that Stream is a name that is unusual for East Anglia. At the present state of

our knowledge, Elizabeth's maiden surname must be considered as unknown. Some

day a record of their marriage may be found, or a probate record might provide

sufficient evidence of her name.

IV. Residences in Massachusetts

A second issue is where and when Samuel and his family lived in Massachusetts.

That he first lived in Hingham and lastly in Bridgewater is generally

recognized, but most accounts have him moving directly from the former to the

latter. However, he moved from Hingham to Weymouth, where he was a Selectman

from 1654 to 1664 and where at least two of his children were born.3 He was

still in Hingham in 1652 when his daughter, Deliverance, was baptized, but

must have moved soon thereafter. In 1664 Samuel was appointed Constable in

Bridgewater, so he must have moved there by that time.4 Samuel was not one of

the original proprietors of Bridgewater, who were all from Duxbury, but he

purchased land from them before August 1662, when he was appointed to a group

to lay out highways.5 He was an active member of the town, being Collector of

Minister's Rates in 1670, Surveyor of Highways in 1672, and Constable again in

1674. He was licensed to keep an "ordinary" in 1671.4 He died there 7 November

1684, and his will, dated 29 October 1684, was signed by mark, helping to

explain why the common misspelling of his name as Packer was not corrected

earlier.6

V. Samuel and Elizabeth's Children and Their Birth Order

Another major issue is the number, birth order, and approximate birth dates

of the children of Samuel and Elizabeth. The traditional number of children

found in the published accounts has been twelve, but, in fact, we can account

for fourteen, as shown below. The birth order and birth dates for the children

in these accounts are widely variant and often obviously incorrect. The first

common error to be corrected is the identity of the first child, born in

England, but whose baptism has not yet been found. The name of this child does

not appear in any of the early records, but there has arisen an unfounded

practice of using the name Elizabeth, presumably because that was the mother's

name. This must be incorrect as it leads to obvious contradictions, and the

only reasonable conclusion is that the first child was Mary. This is based on

the following argument:

1. The earliest baptism we have for this family is that of Elizabeth, Samuel,

Hannah and Israel on 19 July 1646 in Hingham.

2. If Elizabeth were baptized in England it is unlikely that she would be

baptized again, and even more unlikely that a baby would be brought on such a

dangerous voyage without baptism.

3. Mary was not among those being baptized on the above date, but she was

there and probably about nine years old as she was married and a mother eleven

years later. Therefore, she must have been baptized earlier and that in

England.

4. Mary was married about 1656, or nine years before Elizabeth; and

therefore, probably the older of the two. In fact, she had five children by

the time Elizabeth was married.

Assuming that the order listed in the baptismal record is in order of age,

and using the common two year birth interval, we can establish a probable

birth order and approximate birth dates for the first five children as:

1. Mary b. England, ca 1637

2. Elizabeth b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1639

3. Samuel b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1641

4. Hannah b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1645

5. Israel b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1645.

The next baptisms we have are those of Zaccheus, Jane and Abigail on 20 April

1651 and that of Deliverance on 11 July 1652.S Jane and Abigail are always

omitted from accounts of the family, suggesting that they died young. It is

likely that they were twins and too weak to survive. Before listing these four

children, however, we must consider the other children and what we know about

them. In particular, Samuel Packard's will lists five (surviving) daughters as

Mary, Hannah, Jael, Deborah and Deliverance, thus implying that Jael and

Deborah were older than Deliverance. Furthermore, since Jael had her second

marriage in 1672, and her first probably about 1665, she would have to be born

before 1652. This leads to the following listing:

6. Jael b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1647

7. Deborah b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1648

8. Zaccheus b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1650

9. Jane b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1651

10. Abigail b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1651

11. Deliverance b. Hingham, Mass., ca 1652.

     The remaining children are Thomas, John and Nathaniel, the latter to

being named in that order in Samuel's will and Thomas not named. Of all the

children, John is the only one whose recorded birth date has been found, being

20 July 1655 (because July was the fifth month in the Julian calendar this has

been given, mistakenly, as May). While the placement of Thomas is arbitrary,

we can complete a logical listing of the children as:

12. Thomas b. Hingham, Mass.; ca 1653

13. John b. Weymouth, Mass., 20 July 1655

14. Nathaniel b. Weymouth, Mass., ca 1657

Some accounts place the births of some of these children in Bridgewater,

which is clearly in error. The above birth dates are, with one exception,

approximate and subject to future correction. They are, however, consistent

with all known facts.

     VI. Marriage Dates of Samuel and Elizabeth's Children

The marriages of these children are as follows, with the approximate dates'

based on the birth dates of their firstborn:

1. Mary m. Richard Phillips ca 1656 in Weymouth

2. Elizabeth m. Thomas Alger 14 November 1665 in Taunton

3. Samuel m. Elizabeth Lathrop ca 1675

4. Hannah m. (l) Clement Briggs ca 1667

(2) Thomas Randall ca 1671

5. Israel no known marriage

6. Jael m. (l)?Jones ca 1665

(2) John Smith 15 November 1672 in Taunton

7. Deborah m.Samuel Washburn ca 1676

8. Zaccheus m. Sarah Howard ca 1678

9. Jane prob. died young

10. Abigail prob. died young

11. Deliverance m. Thomas Washburn ca 1680

12. Thomas m. ?? (had son Joseph)

13. John m. Judith Winslow 12 April 1688 in Taunton

14. Nathaniel m. Lydia Smith ca 1682

Israel is not found in the records after he was named a Trooper in 1671. It

is often supposed that he was killed in King Philip's War, but this is belied

by the claim that no one from Bridgewater died in that war. The record on

Thomas is similarly scant, and he is often confused with Thomas Packer, a

British surgeon who lived in New Hampshire.

VII. The Packard Surname

A few words about confusion of names are in order since much erroneous

information has appeared in this regard. The name Packard appears in English

records as early as the beginning of the fourteenth century and is probably of

Anglo-Saxon (Old Teutonic) origin. It is not a derivation of Pickard as

claimed by some, nor is it related to Packer as is concluded by many because

of the early misspelling of Samuel Packard's name. The name Packard was well

established in East Anglia long before Samuel's birth, and while the spelling

varies as Paccard, Paccarde, etc., it is unquestionably a unique surname.

VIII. Conclusion

It is hoped that this summary of the known facts regarding Samuel Packard and

his family will serve to clear up some of the confusion created by existing

published accounts and to focus further research where it is needed.

!BIOGRAPHY: Samuel Packard

1612 - 1684

By Richard G. Packard, Mesa, AZ (AzPack@aol.com)

Primogeniture, America and an Ordinary

             Samuel was born and raised on a farm called "Coleman's" in the village of

Stonham Aspal in Suffolk County England. Because he was the fourth son and not

the first born son and heir to his father's farm, from birth he was destined

to be landless. After his marriage to Elizabeth and the birth of his first

child, Mary, in England, he remedied his landlessness by traveling to Ipswich

and boarding the ship Diligent bound for Boston. In 1638 America there was

land for the taking. He first settled in Hingham at the south end of Boston

Harbor with all the Diligent immigrants. Later he moved to Weymouth and

finally he settled at Bridgewater where he became a prominent citizen.

Samuel Packard was probably born in the early part of September, 1612, at

home on his father's farm in Stonham Aspal. He was christened on the 17th of

September at the local parish church of St. Mary and St. Lambert in Stonham

Aspal, Suffolk, England.

The house in which Samuel was born and raised still stands and is known today

by the local folk as the "Red House," because of its distinctive red brick. In

times past and during Samuel's time, the house and adjoining farm were known

as "Coleman's" in a rural area called Whitsungrene. The original house has

been remodeled over the years, being added on to with various additions.

Samuel was the sixth child and fourth son of George and Mary Wyther Packard.

Their children were; Frances, John, George, George (again), Margaret, Samuel,

Nathan and Mary. Their third child, George, died as an infant. All of the

others were raised to adulthood. All of them were probably born in the farm

house located on Mickfield Road just north of Stonham Aspal.

George was a yeoman farmer in the mid-Suffolk area of East Anglia, where, if

he was successful in his farming, he could at least hope his oldest son John

would become part of the landed gentry class of English society. Samuel,

however, was the fourth son, and the customary practice of primogeniture

predestined him from birth to be landless. The English practice of

primogeniture was surely one of the main reasons Samuel decided to immigrate

to New England in America. He probably saw it as the only, or maybe best way

for him to become a successful farmer and land owner like his father before

him.

From his birth Samuel was born into an area of England called East Anglia,

which was steeped in unrest and troubled times. When the Church of England

broke from Rome and was brought under secular control, it caused a lot of

religious unrest amongst the people all over England, but especially those in

East Anglia who aligned themselves with Puritan values. They didn't much care

for the example the monarchy set in religious affairs and their own private

lives.

During this time books were being widely published on all sorts of topics in

plain English instead of the traditional Latin of scholars. A whole new world

of knowledge and understanding was opening up for those who could read. An

education in the basics of reading and writing English, was fast become the

norm, not the exception, for the middle classes of society. This educational

enlightenment through reading, caused them to view the world quite differently

from their long held traditional views. All this tended to cause a lot of

intellectual and religious unrest, as well as a profound distrust of

government authority.

In the early 1600s these problems were compounded as England suffered through

a series of intense economic depressions which led to the "Great Migration" to

America during the 1630s and 40s. This dissatisfaction with government was so

strong that in the 1640s the monarchy was overthrown and King Charles was

murdered. All of the above mentioned unrest leading up to this event over many

years must have prompted Samuel to take action.

In about 1635 at the age of 23, Samuel married a woman named Elizabeth. Over

the years much has been said by various Packard researchers about Elizabeth's

surname and ancestry. Some have assumed it to be Stream, but that surname is

not an East Anglia name. No original records have been found to prove the

validity of her surname, so at present it still remains a mystery.

A couple of years later a daughter named Mary was born to this union and the

family started to grow. The birth of a first child is a time of great

contemplation and reflection for many young fathers and I'm sure Samuel was no

different. This very troubled and unsettled time in England caused Samuel to

consider drastic measures, as he pondered the future of his young family and

securing its future well being. He decided to venture into the virtual unknown

and sail off to America.

Many of the passengers on the ship Diligent were followers of Peter Hobart, a

local minister who had preached in the town of Haverhill before heading off to

America himself in 1635. All of the passengers slowly gathered in the central

town of Wymondham, before heading as a group to the port of Ipswich and

boarding the Diligent. The passengers came from all over East Anglia,

gathering for various reasons, but what they all had in common was a

dissatisfaction with the direction their lives were headed at that time.

The Diligent sailed from the port town of Ipswich (the county seat of

Suffolk) in June of 1638 with 133 passengers on board and John Martin as

master of the ship. The small sailing vessel (probably a two masted brig, or

three masted bark), took roughly two months to cross the north Atlantic to New

England, landing in Boston harbor August 10th. After landing, all of the

passengers traveled to the south end of Massachusetts Bay and settled at the

town of Bear Cove. The large population of East Anglians moving into town

didn't much care for the name of the town and soon had it changed to Hingham,

an East Anglia name more to suitable to their liking.

Being a farmer's son in England, I'm sure Samuel first ventured into that

occupation in Hingham, owning for the first time his very own land in a

pristine new country. Making a living at farming at this time and place would

have been a struggle for sure with the constant clearing of trees and rocks

from the soil. It would have been hard work from sun up to sundown. Add to

that the unpredictable weather of New England and it must have been difficult.

Samuel lived in Hingham until 1653 with the next eleven of his children born

there.

In 1654 the family moved a few miles west to the town of Weymouth, where

Samuel was a Selectman (city councilman) for that town from 1654 to 1664. He

may have sold the old farm in Hingham and started a new one in Weymouth, or

was commuting to the old farm in Hingham. In either case he probably built a

new larger home for his now large and growing family in Weymouth. The last two

of his fourteen children were born here, as well as the marriage of his oldest

daughter, Mary, to Richard Phillips of Weymouth.

In 1662 he purchased some land in Bridgewater in Plymouth County, roughly

twenty miles to the south. That same year he was appointed to a group which

decided the route of highways in the area. In 1664 the family moved south to

Bridgewater as he was appointed Constable of Bridgewater in that year. He was

not one of the original settlers of Bridgewater, but soon became a prominent

citizen. He was a collector of "Minister's Rates" (or a tax collector) in 1670.

In 1671 he was licensed to keep an "ordinary" (a tavern) in Bridgewater. He

was a surveyor of highways in 1672 and the Constable again in 1674. Besides

tending to a small family farm which was typical for most people, the managing

of his ordinary I'm sure was his principal business until his death.

Samuel and Elizabeth's children and their approximate dates of birth were;

Mary 1637, Elizabeth 1639, Samuel 1641, Hannah 1643, Israel 1645, Jael 1647,

Deborah 1648, Zaccheus 1650, Jane (twin) 1651, Abigail (twin) 1651,

Deliverance 1652, Thomas 1653, John 1655 and Nathaniel 1657.

Samuel died in Bridgewater 7 November 1684 at the age of 72. His will is

dated 29 October 1684, so he must have known he didn't have long to live from

a lingering illness or old age. Elizabeth remarried ten years later in 1694 to

John Washburn. She died later that same year on, 27 October 1694.

We owe much to Samuel and Elizabeth, who gathered their courage to venture

into the virtual unknown to better themselves and their family's lot in life.

They leave their scions a lasting legacy of courage in "fighting hard" to

achieve the goals they set in life. For rearing a large and noble family and

for years of public service to their chosen community. It speaks volumes about

their lives, despite the fact they left no written record of themselves.

BIOGRAPHY: Samuel, wife Elizabeth and child, Elizabeth, came from Wymondham,

near Hingham, England, in the ship "Diligence", (Diligent) of Ipswich, John

Martin, master. There were 133 passangers who sailed in June* of 1638,

landing in Boston 10 August 1638. He first settled in Hingham, MA, in 1638,

then to Weymouth and from thence he removed to West Bridgewater. He was a

constable and tevern-keeper. All of this name who have gone from the

Bridgewaters were surely descendants of his, and, in fact, nearly all of the

name in this country can be traced to that place.

There has been some question regarding the name of Samuel's first child, and

the order of birth of some of the others. Some people reason Mary is the

older, because she married nine years before Elizabeth, but other references,

list Elizabeth as the first born. Also, because his children were not

christened at birth, I believe he was either away from the proper clergy, or

church of his belief.

There have been a variety of ways in which the name has been written; namely,

Packer, Paccard, Peckard, Peckerd; but the usual and proper name is Packard.

It is expedient to remember that not all who recorded names in the registers

were good spellers nor highly educated. Many wrote as they heard, writing the

name phonetically. Thus the deviations in spelling of the same name.

Records show Samuel owned a grant of land in 1638 at Hingham. He removed with

his wife, Elizabeth, about 1660 from Hingham to Bridgewater, Mass. with their

twelve children, Elizabeth, Samuel Jr., Zaccheus, Thomas, John, Nathaniel,

Mary, Hannah, Israel, Jael, Deborah, and Deliverance.

That he first lived in Hingham and lastly in Bridgewater is generally

recognized, but most accounts have him moving directly from the former to the

later. However, he moved from Hingham to Weymouth, where he was a Selectman

from 1654 to 1664 and at least two of his children were born. He was still in

Hingham in 1652 when his daughter, Deliverance, was baptized, but must have

moved soon thereafter.

Samuel was not an original proprietor of Bridgewater, who were all from

Duxbury, but he purchased land from them before August 1662, when he was

appointed to a group to lay out highways. He was an active member of the

town, being Collector of Minister's Rates in 1670, Surveyor of Highways in

1672, and Constable again in 1674. He was licensed to keep an "ordinary"

(tavern) in 1671. He died there 7 November 1684, and his will, dated 29

October 1684, was signed by mark, helping to explain why the common

misspelling of his name as Packer was not corrected earlier.

Karle assumes Samuel could not write, because he signed his will by mark,

however keep in mind that his family's prominence in Stonham Asphal was such

that at least the sons of George Packard would have been taught by the vicar,

as was the custom of the time. Students went to school from dawn until

mid-afternoon, learning all subjects of the day, including Latin and Greek. I

believe Samuel was schooled to the limit of the vicar, and the reason for his

mark, was due to ill health or poor eye sight near the time of his death.

In 1667 he served on the committee to lay out streets at Bridgewater. He was

made constable in 1664, and licensed to operate a Tavern--Hotel in 1670. In

1682 he with four sons was named among 80 Proprietors of Bridgewater.

Bridgewater was taken from Duxbury and deeded to Miles Standish, Constant

Southworth and Samuel Nash in 1649.

All of Samuel's sons are said to have served as soilders in the Indian Wars of

1675 and 1676.

There is a discrepancy in the records for Samuel's death date. Some show it

to be 7 April 1684, however his last 'Will' was dated 29 October 1684. Others

list his death date as 7 November 1684.

Elizabeth remarried after Samuel's death, to John Washburn, 1685/6.
