  • Birth: Mar 14 1622 - England
  • Death: Dec 25 1689 - Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts
  • Parents: Nicholas Stowers, Amy

In 1654 or early in 1655 John Burrage married (as his 2nd wife) Joanna Stowers, daughter of Nicholas and Amy Stowers. The Stowers family were of the company of emigrants of whom Rev. Mr. Higginson, Rev. Mr. Bright, and Thomas Graves, engineer, were members, who arrived from England and settled in Salem and Charlestown the last of June or the first of July, 1629. 'With the exception of Thomas Walford, a blacksmith, who had built and occupied a palisado house upon the south side of Breed's (now Bunker's) Hill, these emigrants were the first that settled in Charlestown."

Nicholas and Amy Stowers were of the thirty-five persons who were dismissed from the Boston Church the 14th of the eighth month, 1632, and formed the First Church in Charlestown. — Frothingham.

Nicholas Stowers was herdsman for the settlement. His duties were "to drive the herd forth to their food (to the Cow Commons) in the main every morning and to bring them into town every evening, and to have fifty bushels of Indian Corn for keeping the Milch Cows till Indian harvest be taken in."
