About Macute or Matthew Pratt

Early settler of Weymouth, Massachusetts.

He came to Weymouth either 1623 with Robert Gorges co. or in 1635 "Mar. Elizabeth Bate bapt 11 Mar 1620, Lydd, Kent, Eng., dtr of Andrew and gr'dtr of Andrew Sr."

Had 7 children with Elizabeth, including Samuel.


if Elizabeth was not baptised as an adult in preparation for voyage to America, she had to be second wife and not Mother of all Matthew's children.

From Pratt, Francis Greenleaf; Gilbert Nash; and E. Granville (Ezra Granville) Pratt. The Pratt family: a genealogical record of Mathew Pratt of Weymouth, Mass., and his American descendants, 1623-1888. (Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society of Utah, 1963), pages 19, 21.

'In the first records of Weymouth he is frequently referred to as Macute Pratt and Mathew Pratt, the names being interchangeable in the same record; but his signature to the will is spelled Mathew.' [sic, see Nicholson postingS2.]

'The will of Mathew Pratt was recently found on file in the Suffolk County Probate Office at Boston. It is dated March 25, 1672, probated April 30, 1673, .. and is as follows:--

Mathew Pratt of Weymouth, ...' 'An Inventory of the Estate of Mathew Pratt who deceased August 29, 1672, & appraised by us who were called thereunto the 12th of the 10th month 1672, ...'

The Macute (not Matthew) Pratt who died in Weymouth in 1672 was NOT the son of Phineas Pratt (one of the alternatives in Ancestral File HB4X-NW). They were contemporaries (both born approx. 1590-1600). Macute was from Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire, and was unlikely to have been baptized in Kent as indicated in the Andestral File record.


-------------------- A son was killed by Indians.

The Pratt family went to England from Normandy where in 1096 a member of the family joined the Crusaders.
