About Hezekiah Hoar

HEZEKIAH HOAR was in Scituate, Mass., as early as 1637, and probably came in 1633. He was one of the purchasers of the eight mile square known as Cohansett till Sept., 1639, and afterwards as the North Purchase of Taunton, Mass. He paid 100 pounds for his share. He was a prominent citizen of Taunton. He was the first signer of the articles of agreement of 1653 of the "Iron Works Company," operating the "bloomerie," the first iron works in America, and was one of its three lessees in 1660. He was surveyor of highways in 1651; constable in 1657, 1663 and 1672, and was enlisted as ensign in the expedition against the Dutch of New Amsterdam projected under the leadership of Capt. Miles Standish. Hezekiah’s home was on the west corner of Winter street, then known as "Hoar’s Lane." His wife’s name was Rebecca, spelled Rebekah. The general court of the colony granted to her in 1666 forty acres of land adjoining Taunton. She probably died before 1692, as she does not join in Hezekiah’s deed in the year. On February 27, 1692, he deeded all his property to his sons, Edward and Hezekiah, the home place to them for themselves; the other land in trust to convey 100 acres to each of his children. The deed was recorded August 4, 1693, which was probably just after Hezekiah’s death. The Taunton of his day included the present towns of Taunton, Mansfield, Norton, Raynham, Dighton, Berkley and part of Freetown. An apparently different residence ascribed to a descendant is often therefore attributable solely to a change of territorial boundaries.
