  • "Vltio Junij, 1635. Aboard the Abigail, Robert Hackwell Mr p cert from the Minister of Stepney pish of their conformitie : 1 that they are no snbsedy men.

  • Marv Roote 15

  • The following is taken from Newhalls' History of Lynn, Mass.:
  • Page 151 — "Henry Collins was a starchmaker and lived in Essex street. He embarked in the Abigail, of London, 30 June, 1635. In 1639 he was a member of the Salem Court. He was born in 1606, and was buried 20 February 1687, at the age of 81. His wife, Ann, was born in 1605. His children were Henry, born 1630; John, born 1632; Margery, born 1633; and Joseph, born 1635, and his descendants remain."
  • Page 171— "1637 — A town meeting was held this year in which Daniel Howe, Richard Walker and Henry Collins were chosen a committie to divide the lands, or as it was expressed in the records: 'To lay out ffarmes.' The land was laid out in those parts of the town best, adapted for cultivation, and the wood lands were reserved as common property, called the 'Town Common', and was not divided until sixty-nine years afterwards."
  • In a list of names, about one hundred in number, recorded in the town records in the year 1638, which follows the above extract, appears the following: "Henry Collins up-land and meadow 80 acres and ten." The ten acres was a separate allotment, and was undoubtedly his village or town lot where he resided.
  • Other references to the name of Henry Collins in the public records
  • https://archive.org/stream/descendantsofjoh00coll#page/8/mode/1up
  • of Lynn show he was a man of importance in that community, was frequently called upon to perform duties of public trust and confidence, and sometimes acted as an advocate in court trials.
  • A. Chalkley Collins of Great Barrington, Mass., in a letter dated Aug. 16, 1900, says: "Henry Collins belonged to the Parish of Stepney in the eastern part of the present city of London and worshiped in the Old Parish Church at that place. This Parish Church of Stepney, dedicated to Saint Dunstan, is the oldest in East London, and one of the oldest in all London. Before Dunstan re-built the church in the tenth century there was a Saxon church there dedicated to all saints. The present church was built in the time of Edward IV, 1471-1483, a few relics of the previous church being preserved. According to the church records several of the children of Henry Collins were baptized in this church, among whom was his son John (our ancestor) at the age of eight days on January 82, 1631. Henry's place of abode is recorded in this record as Tatcliff Highway, and his business that of a starchmaker. His wife. Ann. died at Lynn, Mass., probably in 1690, as her will dated in 1690 was probated in that year."
  • II. JOHN COLLINS, (second son of Henry and Ann) born in England in 1632 and lost by shipwreck at sea with his son John in 1679, married Abigail Johnson, daughter of Richard Johnson, at Lynn. Mass.. and by her had the following children, all born at Lynn, twelve of whom survived him : .... etc.
