About Joseph Kellogg, Sr.

Birth: 1626

Harwich, England

Death: Jun. 27, 1708

Hadley

Hampshire County

Massachusetts, USA

The son of Martin & Prudence (Bird) Kellogg, he was baptized on April 1, 1626 in Great Leighs, England. He married (1) Joanna Foote, daughter of Richard Foote, probably in England. The date of their immigration is unknown. He married (2) Abigail Terry, daughter of Stephen & Elizabeth Terry of Windsor, Conn., on September 21, 1646.

He was in Farmington in the Colony of Conn. in 1661. He and wife, Joanna, joined the Farmington church on October 9, 1653. His home lot was four acres that he purchased from John Andrews as well as a twelve acre lot for plowing called "Nod Hill". He served several terms as a selectman. His occupation was that of a weaver.

He sold his property in Farmington and removed to Boston about 1657 where he purchased a dwelling house for 140 pounds from Peter Oliver & his wife on October 16, 1659. This property was mortgaged in November of that year to Sgt. Thomas Clarke to secure the payment of 100 pounds for wheat, pork, & peas at current market price. The land was sold to John Witherden on June 13, 1661.

In 1661, he removed from Boston to Hadley in Mass. Bay Colony being an early proprietor of Hadley. He made an agreement with the town to keep the ferry between Hadley and Northampton. The ferry lot is where he built his home lot. On June 1, 1677, the town ordered that "Joseph Kellogg, ferryman of Hadley, be paid 40 pounds for loss of his team impressed for the country's service and with refernce to his ferriage of souldjers." He, his son John, and grandson, James Kellogg, kept this ferry until 1758, almost a century.

Joseph Kellogg was chosen Sgt. of the train band of Hadley in 1663. On May 9, 1678, he was promoted to Ensign of the Foot Company in Hadley and in October of the same year, Lieutenant of that company, a position in which he served for 29 consecutive years. Sgt. Kellogg & his troops fought in the "Turner's Falls" battle in 1676. He was a selectman in Hadley for several years between 1665 and 1692, and was on a committee to purchase land from the Indians called Swampfield.

In 1661 his estate was valued at 100 pounds, but by the time of his death in 1708, it was worth about 400 pounds even though he had gifted part of his estate previously to his children. He fathered 20 children, 14 of which reached adulthood. His will probated and proved on February 10, 1708, shows his deep faith in his Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ. In it he names children: John Kellogg, Martin Kellogg, Edward Kellogg, Samuel Kellogg, Joanna (Kellogg) Smith; Sarah (Kellogg) Ashley, Stephen Kellogg & Nathaniel Kellogg, Elizabeth (Kellogg) Nash, Abigail (Kellogg) Smith, Prudence (Kellogg) Merrill, Ebenezer Kellogg, Jonathan Kellogg, Joseph Kellogg. His widow, Abigail and friend, Capt. Samuel Partridge were appointed joint executors.

Was a weaver. Due to a depression in the weaving trade immigrated with his brothers Daniel and Samuel in 1657 to Boston. In 1661 moved to Hadley, Massachusetts and made agreement to run the Ferry between Hadley and Northampton. He served as selectman in Hadley for several years. In 1673 Abigail was acquitted of wearing silk, even though her husband's estate was under the 200 pounds necessary to wear silks (it was considered an extravagance in dress). Joseph served as a sergeant of the Hadley's Troops which battled the River Tribes in 1676 in the Turner's Falls Fight.

(I) Lieutenant Joseph Kellogg, son of Martin and Prudence (Bird) Kellogg, was baptized in Great Leighs, England, April 1, 1626, died in Hadley, Massachusetts, between June 27, 1707, the date of his will, and February 4, 1708, when it was proved. It is not known in what year he came to America. He was in Farmington, Connecticut, 1651, where he was an early settler and several times selectman. He and his wife were "joined" to the church, October 9, 1653. His home lot in Boston, Massachusetts, consisted of four acres; a part of it is now covered by the Advertiser building on Washington street, and is one of the most valuable parcels of land in Boston. He removed from Boston to Hadley and was one of the proprietors. In 1661 the town made an agreement with him to keep the ferry between Hadley and Northampton. The agreement is a very curious document, stipulating rates on dark nights, stormy weather, late hours, etc. This ferry was in the family nearly a century. He was selectman in Hadley 1665-74-77-78-79-85-92, school committee in 1686. The general court of Massachusetts appointed him, May 9, 1678, ensign in the Foot Company in Hadley, and October 7, same year, lieutenant in the same company. He served in that office until 1692, making his military service cover a period of twenty-nine years. Captain Aaron Cook, who was appointed captain when Joseph was appointed ensign, served thirty-five years, until 1713. This explains why Joseph got no higher rank than lieutenant. He was in command of the Hadley troops at the famous "Turners Falls" fight, which broke the power of the river tribes. When he settled in Hadley, in 1661, his estate was assessed at one hundred pounds; at the time of his death his personal estate alone was inventoried at four hundred pounds. He was the father of twenty children, fourteen of whom arrived at maturity. He seems to have been an energetic, strong, sturdy character, an affectionate, just husband and father. He distributed his estate fairly and there was no dissension. He married, in England, Joanna ————; she died in Hadley, Massachusetts, September 14, 1666. He married (second) Abigail Terry, born in Windsor, Connecticut, September 21, 1646, daughter of Stephen, born in Wiltshire, England. Her will was proved October 31, 1726. Abigail was before the court in 1673, charged as one who "wore silk contrary to law." She was acquitted. Children by first wife, Joanna, were: Elizabeth; Joseph, who was fined ten shillings for "having travelled till midnight in the night before the Sabbath"; Nathaniel; John, see forward; Martin, Edward, Samuel, Joanna and Sarah. By his second wife, born in Hadley: Stephen, Nathaniel, Abigail, Elizabeth, Prudence, Ebenezer, Jonathan, Daniel, Joseph (on his gravestone in Hadley he is called "A worthy gentleman"), Daniel and Ephraim.

selectman. He and his wife were "joined" to the church, 9 Oct., 1653.

He removed to Boston about 1657.

He removed from Boston to Hadley, Mass. and was one of the proprietors.

In 1661, the town make an agreement with him to keep the ferry between

Hadley and Northampton. The crossing received the name "Kellogg's Ferry"

until 1758 when the proprietorship passed to Stephen Goodman, who married

a daughter of James Kellogg, great-grandson of Joseph, and became known

as "Goodman's Ferry."

Early in the history of New England, Military Companies or "train bands"

were formed to protect the settlers. As early as 16 May, 1661, Hadley

voted there should be a training. The County Court approved the choice of

Joseph Kellogg as Sergeant of the Company, March, 1663. The General Court

of Massachusetts appointed him, 9 May, 1678, Ensign in the Foot Company

in Hadley, and 7 October, of the same year, Lieutenant in the same

company. He served in that office until 1692, his military service thus

extending over twenty-nine consecutive years.

He sustained his part in the struggle of the settlers against the

Indians, and was in command, as Sergeant, of the Hadley troops at the

famous "Turner's Falls" fight, 18 May, 1676, which broke the power of the

river tribes.

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

Joseph Kellogg gained the rank of Sergeant in 1661 in the service of the Hadley Militia Company.1 He gained the rank of Ensign on 9 May 1678 in the service of the Foot Company of Hadley.1 He gained the rank of Lieutenant

In 1663 he was made a sergeant in the militia, ensign in 1678, and lieutenant in 1679. He took part in the Indian skirmish known as "The Falls Fight" in 1676. At that time he was the ferryman at Hadley, Mass., which business was kept in the family for one hundred years.

He frequently served as selectman in the town of Hadley, and must have been well-to-do, for in 1673 his second wife was before the court for not dressing in silk attire according to the prescribed custom of her station.

However she was not found guilty of a misdemeanor. Joseph had two wives, Joanna and Abigail Terry, and was the father of twenty-five children, the tenth being STEPHEN.

17. LIEUT. JOSEPH, son of Martin* (7), bap. in Great Leighs, England, 1 Apr., 1626; m. (1) probably in England, Joanna .

She d. in Hadley, Mass., l4 Sept., 1666. He m. (2) Abigail Terry, b. in Windsor, Conn., 21 Sept., 1646, daughter of Stephen Terry,* b. in Stockton, Wiltshire, England, 25 Aug., 1608, and Elizabeth.

He d. between 27 June, 1707, when his will was dated and 4 Feb., 1708, when it was proved; she d. between 29 May, 1717, when her will was dated, and 31 Oct., 1726, when it was proved.

It is not known in what year he came to America. He was in Parmington, Conn., in 1651, where he was an early settler and served several terms as selectman. He and his wife were "joined" to the church, 9 Oct., 1653.

His home lot, consisting of four acres, was purchased from John Andrews, from whom he also bought a twelve-acre lot of plowing land curiously called "Nod Land." He sold this property in Feb., 1655, and removed, about 1657, to Boston, where "Joseph Kelog, weaver, late of Farmington, in the colony of Connecticut, now of Boston," bought from Peter Oliver and his wife, 16 Oct., 1659, "their dwelling-house, fronting to the street leading to Koxbury, for one hundred and forty pounds starling." Joseph "Kelog" and Joanna, his wife, mortgaged the same premises, 18 Nov., 1659, to Sgt. Thomas Clarke, to secure the payment of one hundred pounds to be paid "in good wheate, pork and pease at merchants' currant price."

They sold the same premises to John Witherden, 13 June, 1661. This land (now covered, in part, by the Advertiser Building on Washington street), which Joseph bought for seven hundred dollars in 1659, is one of the most valuable parcels of land in Boston, being worth more than one hundred dollars per square foot.

He removed from Boston to Hadley and was one of the proprietors. In 1661, the town made an agreement with him to keep the ferry between Hadley and Northampton,** and he built his house on a small "home lot" which had been reserved by the town for a "Ferry lot."

In January, 1675, a committee appointed by the Court made an agreement with him. He was to have a boat for horses and a canoe for persons, and to receive for man and horse, 8d. in wheat or other pay, or 6d. in money; for single persons, 3d., and when more than one, 2d. each. On Lecture days, people passing to and from Lecture, if six or more went over together, were to pay Id. each.

Stephen Terry, son of John Terry and Mary White, came to America on the "Mary and John," in 1630; admitted freeman in Dorchester, Mass., 16 May, 1631; rem. to Windsor, Conn., in 1637, where he was a member of the first troop of cavalry organized in this country. He rem. to Hadley as early as 1663, and was its first constable. He d. there, 1668; his wife d. 11 Aug., 1683.

  • *The river was formerly near the lower end of the street, and the landing was not far from his house. Aquavitae meadow, in Hadley, has received a great addition from Northampton meadow, and the river is now forty-five or fifty rods south of the old landing place.

Troopers, passing to and from trooping exercises, were to pay only 3d. for man and horse. He was also granted liberty to entertain travelers.

The Court, 1 June, 1677, ordered that "Joseph Kellogg, ferryman of Hadley, be paid forty pounds for loss of his team impressed for the country's service and with reference to his ferriage of souldjers."

In 1687, another agreement was made with him, and he was allowed to take double price after dark until 9 o'clock. At later hours, and in storms and floods, those who would cross must agree with the ferryman. Others might not carry over persons within fifty rods of the ferry place, except men to their day-labor. He and his son, John, and grandson, James Kellogg, kept this ferry until 1758 — almost a century; and Stephen Goodman, who married a daughter of James Kellogg, kept it still later, and from him it received its last name, "Goodman's Ferry."

He was selectman in Hadley, 1665, '74, '77, '79, '81, '85, '92. In 1686, he was on the committee "to consider the method that may be best for laying out of the common lands." In the division which followed, he and his sons, John, Edward and Nathaniel, received grants of land on the "Highway which runs down to Foot's Folly from New Swamp." He was on the committee for the purchase, from the Indians, of Swampfield. From Swampfield (for which the Indians received £26) have been formed, in whole or in part, the towns of Sunderland, Montague and Leverett.

He was a member of the school committee in 1686, and opposed taking the management of the Hopkins School* from the committee. After a sharp contest, the committee succeeded in having the management of the school retained in their hands.

Early in the history of New England, Military Companies or "train bands" were formed to protect the settlers. As early as 16 May, 1661, Hadley voted there should be a training. The County Court approved the choice of Joseph Kellogg as Sergeant of the Company, March, 1663. The General Court of Massachusetts appointed him, 9 May, 1678, Ensign in the Foot Company in Hadley, and 7 October, of the same year, Lieutenant in the same company. He served in that office until 1692, his military service thus extending over twenty-nine consecutive years. That he received no further promotion may be accounted for by the fact that Aaron Cook, Jr., who was appointed Captain when Lieut. Joseph was made Ensign, held that office thirty-five years, or until 1713.

He sustained his part in the struggle of the settlers against the Indians, and was in command, as Sergeant, of the Hadley troops at the famous "Turners' Falls" fight, 18 May, 1676, which broke the power of the river tribes.

In 1661, when he settled in Hadley, his estate was assessed at £100, and at the time of his death his personal estate, alone, was inventoried at about £400, and he had previously given various sums to his children.

He was the father of twenty children (fourteen of whom reached maturity), and well exemplifies the Biblical signification of his name "He Shall Add." He' seems to have been energetic, of a strong, sturdy character, an affectionate

•Edward Hopkins, Esq., resided some years in Hartford; d. in England, 1657. In his will of that year he bequeathed a portion of his property "to give some encouragement in those foreign plantations for the breeding up of hopeful youths, in way of learning, both at the Grammar School and College, for the public service of the country in future times." Hadley received one-fourth of the bequest, or £308, and established the Hopkins Grammar School.

husband and father, and to have borne a creditable part in the struggles of the early settlers.

His wife, Abigail, in 1673, was among those presented by the jury at the March Court of Hampshire, as persons of small estate, who "use to wear silk contrary to law." She was acquitted, but this attempt to enforce the sumptuary laws against her showed that her husband's estate was below the £200 needed to allow her to wear "gold or silver lace, gold or silver buttons, bone lace above 2s. per yard, or silk hoods or scarfs," which the good men of that period looked upon as extravagance in dress.

His will was proved in the Hampshire County Probate Court in Northampton, 10 Feb., 1778:

-------------------- The son of Martin & Prudence (Bird) Kellogg, he was baptized on April 1, 1626 in Great Leighs, England. He married (1) Joanna Foote, daughter of Richard Foote, probably in England. The date of their immigration is unknown. He married (2) Abigail Terry, daughter of Stephen & Elizabeth Terry of Windsor, Conn., on September 21, 1646.

He was in Farmington in the Colony of Conn. in 1661. He and wife, Joanna, joined the Farmington church on October 9, 1653. His home lot was four acres that he purchased from John Andrews as well as a twelve acre lot for plowing called "Nod Hill". He served several terms as a selectman. His occupation was that of a weaver.

He sold his property in Farmington and removed to Boston about 1657 where he purchased a dwelling house for 140 pounds from Peter Oliver & his wife on October 16, 1659. This property was mortgaged in November of that year to Sgt. Thomas Clarke to secure the payment of 100 pounds for wheat, pork, & peas at current market price. The land was sold to John Witherden on June 13, 1661.

In 1661, he removed from Boston to Hadley in Mass. Bay Colony being an early proprietor of Hadley. He made an agreement with the town to keep the ferry between Hadley and Northampton. The ferry lot is where he built his home lot. On June 1, 1677, the town ordered that "Joseph Kellogg, ferryman of Hadley, be paid 40 pounds for loss of his team impressed for the country's service and with refernce to his ferriage of souldjers." He, his son John, and grandson, James Kellogg, kept this ferry until 1758, almost a century.

James Kellogg was chosen Sgt. of the train band of Hadley in 1663. On May 9, 1678, he was promoted to Ensign of the Foot Company in Hadley and in October of the same year, Lieutenant of that company, a position in which he served for 29 consecutive years. Sgt. Kellogg & his troops fought in the "Turner's Falls" battle in 1676. He was a selectman in Hadley for several years between 1665 and 1692, and was on a committee to purchase land from the Indians called Swampfield.

In 1661 his estate was valued at 100 pounds, but by the time of his death in 1708, it was worth about 400 pounds even though he had gifted part of his estate previously to his children. He fathered 20 children, 14 of which reached adulthood. His will probated and proved on February 10, 1708, shows his deep faith in his Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ. In it he names children: John Kellogg, Martin Kellogg, Edward Kellogg, Samuel Kellogg, Joanna (Kellogg) Smith; Sarah (Kellogg) Ashley, Stephen Kellogg & Nathaniel Kellogg, Elizabeth (Kellogg) Nash, Abigail (Kellogg) Smith, Prudence (Kellogg) Merrill, Ebenezer Kellogg, Jonathan Kellogg, Joseph Kellogg.

Was a weaver. Due to a depression in the weaving trade immigrated with his brothers Daniel and Samuel in 1657 to Boston. In 1661 moved to Hadley, Massachusetts and made agreement to run the Ferry between Hadley and Northampton. He served as selectman in Hadley for several years. In 1673 Abigail was acquitted of wearing silk, even though her husband's estate was under the 200 pounds necessary to wear silks (it was considered an extravagance in dress). Joseph served as a sergeant of the Hadley's Troops which battled the River Tribes in 1676 in the Turner's Falls Fight.

(I) Lieutenant Joseph Kellogg, son of Martin and Prudence (Bird) Kellogg, was baptized in Great Leighs, England, April 1, 1626, died in Hadley, Massachusetts, between June 27, 1707, the date of his will, and February 4, 1708, when it was proved. It is not known in what year he came to America. He was in Farmington, Connecticut, 1651, where he was an early settler and several times selectman. He and his wife were "joined" to the church, October 9, 1653. His home lot in Boston, Massachusetts, consisted of four acres; a part of it is now covered by the Advertiser building on Washington street, and is one of the most valuable parcels of land in Boston. He removed from Boston to Hadley and was one of the proprietors. In 1661 the town made an agreement with him to keep the ferry between Hadley and Northampton. The agreement is a very curious document, stipulating rates on dark nights, stormy weather, late hours, etc. This ferry was in the family nearly a century. He was selectman in Hadley 1665-74-77-78-79-85-92, school committee in 1686. The general court of Massachusetts appointed him, May 9, 1678, ensign in the Foot Company in Hadley, and October 7, same year, lieutenant in the same company. He served in that office until 1692, making his military service cover a period of twenty-nine years. Captain Aaron Cook, who was appointed captain when Joseph was appointed ensign, served thirty-five years, until 1713. This explains why Joseph got no higher rank than lieutenant. He was in command of the Hadley troops at the famous "Turners Falls" fight, which broke the power of the river tribes. When he settled in Hadley, in 1661, his estate was assessed at one hundred pounds; at the time of his death his personal estate alone was inventoried at four hundred pounds. He was the father of twenty children, fourteen of whom arrived at maturity. He seems to have been an energetic, strong, sturdy character, an affectionate, just husband and father. He distributed his estate fairly and there was no dissension. He married, in England, Joanna ————; she died in Hadley, Massachusetts, September 14, 1666. He married (second) Abigail Terry, born in Windsor, Connecticut, September 21, 1646, daughter of Stephen, born in Wiltshire, England. Her will was proved October 31, 1726. Abigail was before the court in 1673, charged as one who "wore silk contrary to law." She was acquitted. Children by first wife, Joanna, were: Elizabeth; Joseph, who was fined ten shillings for "having travelled till midnight in the night before the Sabbath"; Nathaniel; John, see forward; Martin, Edward, Samuel, Joanna and Sarah. By his second wife, born in Hadley: Stephen, Nathaniel, Abigail, Elizabeth, Prudence, Ebenezer, Jonathan, Daniel, Joseph (on his gravestone in Hadley he is called "A worthy gentleman"), Daniel and Ephraim.

17. LIEUT. JOSEPH, son of Martin* (7), bap. in Great Leighs, England, 1 Apr., 1626; m. (1) probably in England, Joanna .

She d. in Hadley, Mass., l4 Sept., 1666. He m. (2) Abigail Terry, b. in Windsor, Conn., 21 Sept., 1646, daughter of Stephen Terry,* b. in Stockton, Wiltshire, England, 25 Aug., 1608, and Elizabeth.

He d. between 27 June, 1707, when his will was dated and 4 Feb., 1708, when it was proved; she d. between 29 May, 1717, when her will was dated, and 31 Oct., 1726, when it was proved.

It is not known in what year he came to America. He was in Parmington, Conn., in 1651, where he was an early settler and served several terms as selectman. He and his wife were "joined" to the church, 9 Oct., 1653.

His home lot, consisting of four acres, was purchased from John Andrews, from whom he also bought a twelve-acre lot of plowing land curiously called "Nod Land." He sold this property in Feb., 1655, and removed, about 1657, to Boston, where "Joseph Kelog, weaver, late of Farmington, in the colony of Connecticut, now of Boston," bought from Peter Oliver and his wife, 16 Oct., 1659, "their dwelling-house, fronting to the street leading to Koxbury, for one hundred and forty pounds starling." Joseph "Kelog" and Joanna, his wife, mortgaged the same premises, 18 Nov., 1659, to Sgt. Thomas Clarke, to secure the payment of one hundred pounds to be paid "in good wheate, pork and pease at merchants' currant price."

They sold the same premises to John Witherden, 13 June, 1661. This land (now covered, in part, by the Advertiser Building on Washington street), which Joseph bought for seven hundred dollars in 1659, is one of the most valuable parcels of land in Boston, being worth more than one hundred dollars per square foot.

He removed from Boston to Hadley and was one of the proprietors. In 1661, the town made an agreement with him to keep the ferry between Hadley and Northampton,** and he built his house on a small "home lot" which had been reserved by the town for a "Ferry lot."

In January, 1675, a committee appointed by the Court made an agreement with him. He was to have a boat for horses and a canoe for persons, and to receive for man and horse, 8d. in wheat or other pay, or 6d. in money; for single persons, 3d., and when more than one, 2d. each. On Lecture days, people passing to and from Lecture, if six or more went over together, were to pay Id. each.

Stephen Terry, son of John Terry and Mary White, came to America on the "Mary and John," in 1630; admitted freeman in Dorchester, Mass., 16 May, 1631; rem. to Windsor, Conn., in 1637, where he was a member of the first troop of cavalry organized in this country. He rem. to Hadley as early as 1663, and was its first constable. He d. there, 1668; his wife d. 11 Aug., 1683.

  • The river was formerly near the lower end of the street, and the landing was not far from his house. Aquavitae meadow, in Hadley, has received a great addition from Northampton meadow, and the river is now forty-five or fifty rods south of the old landing place.

Troopers, passing to and from trooping exercises, were to pay only 3d. for man and horse. He was also granted liberty to entertain travelers.

The Court, 1 June, 1677, ordered that "Joseph Kellogg, ferryman of Hadley, be paid forty pounds for loss of his team impressed for the country's service and with reference to his ferriage of souldjers."

In 1687, another agreement was made with him, and he was allowed to take double price after dark until 9 o'clock. At later hours, and in storms and floods, those who would cross must agree with the ferryman. Others might not carry over persons within fifty rods of the ferry place, except men to their day-labor. He and his son, John, and grandson, James Kellogg, kept this ferry until 1758 — almost a century; and Stephen Goodman, who married a daughter of James Kellogg, kept it still later, and from him it received its last name, "Goodman's Ferry."

He was selectman in Hadley, 1665, '74, '77, '79, '81, '85, '92. In 1686, he was on the committee "to consider the method that may be best for laying out of the common lands." In the division which followed, he and his sons, John, Edward and Nathaniel, received grants of land on the "Highway which runs down to Foot's Folly from New Swamp." He was on the committee for the purchase, from the Indians, of Swampfield. From Swampfield (for which the Indians received £26) have been formed, in whole or in part, the towns of Sunderland, Montague and Leverett.

He was a member of the school committee in 1686, and opposed taking the management of the Hopkins School* from the committee. After a sharp contest, the committee succeeded in having the management of the school retained in their hands.

Early in the history of New England, Military Companies or "train bands" were formed to protect the settlers. As early as 16 May, 1661, Hadley voted there should be a training. The County Court approved the choice of Joseph Kellogg as Sergeant of the Company, March, 1663. The General Court of Massachusetts appointed him, 9 May, 1678, Ensign in the Foot Company in Hadley, and 7 October, of the same year, Lieutenant in the same company. He served in that office until 1692, his military service thus extending over twenty-nine consecutive years. That he received no further promotion may be accounted for by the fact that Aaron Cook, Jr., who was appointed Captain when Lieut. Joseph was made Ensign, held that office thirty-five years, or until 1713.

He sustained his part in the struggle of the settlers against the Indians, and was in command, as Sergeant, of the Hadley troops at the famous "Turners' Falls" fight, 18 May, 1676, which broke the power of the river tribes.

In 1661, when he settled in Hadley, his estate was assessed at £100, and at the time of his death his personal estate, alone, was inventoried at about £400, and he had previously given various sums to his children.

He was the father of twenty children (fourteen of whom reached maturity), and well exemplifies the Biblical signification of his name "He Shall Add." He' seems to have been energetic, of a strong, sturdy character, an affectionate

•Edward Hopkins, Esq., resided some years in Hartford; d. in England, 1657. In his will of that year he bequeathed a portion of his property "to give some encouragement in those foreign plantations for the breeding up of hopeful youths, in way of learning, both at the Grammar School and College, for the public service of the country in future times." Hadley received one-fourth of the bequest, or £308, and established the Hopkins Grammar School.

husband and father, and to have borne a creditable part in the struggles of the early settlers.

His wife, Abigail, in 1673, was among those presented by the jury at the March Court of Hampshire, as persons of small estate, who "use to wear silk contrary to law." She was acquitted, but this attempt to enforce the sumptuary laws against her showed that her husband's estate was below the £200 needed to allow her to wear "gold or silver lace, gold or silver buttons, bone lace above 2s. per yard, or silk hoods or scarfs," which the good men of that period looked upon as extravagance in dress.

His will was proved in the Hampshire County Probate Court in Northampton, 10 Feb., 1778:

Upon the twenty-seventh day of June One Thousand Seven Hundred and seven in the sixth year of the Reign of our Lady Anne by the Grace of God, of England, Scotland, France & Ireland Queen, Defendr of the Faith &c I Joseph Kellogg of Hadley in ye County of Hampshire within the province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England I hope having a suitable sence of the many infermities, the considerable old age that I am now come to hath exposed me to all which giving me warning that I must shortly when it pleases God to call yield to Death and Lay down this Earthly Tabernacle, Being at Present Through the Great Goodness of God of sound mind and perfect memory and accounting it my Duty to set things In order with Reference to that Portion of Estate God in Goodness hath Given me and Therefore I do make this my Last will & Testamt as followeth.
