Roger Toothaker 1

'Roger Toothaker was born in England about 1612. He came to New England in 1635 on the Hopewell, along with his wife Margaret, then 28, and his infant son Roger. Roger died by 5 February 1637/8 when widow Margaret Toothaker was granted land. Margaret remarried to Ralph Hill on 21 December 1638 in Plymouth Colony. They were in Woburn by 1645 and in Billerica by 1654. Margaret died at Billerica 22 December 1683.

  • Roger Toothaker 2 (Roger)
  • Roger, son of 'Roger and Margaret Toothaker', was born 1634 in England. He married Mary Allin, a daughter of Andrew Allin and Faith Ingalls, at Billerica on 9 June 1665. Roger was a physician, although possibly more of a self taught herbalist by today's standards, and Mary was a midwife. Billerica Records show that on 12 March 1682/3 and on 15 December 1684 the town Selectmen intervened for Roger to take care of his family, which he apparently ignored as the family received aid from the town.
  • This family had quite an involvement in the witchcraft trials at Salem. In those times doctors would often blame untreatable illnesses on witchcraft. Dr. Toothaker had claimed to many people that his daughter (Martha Emerson) had killed a witch. On 18 May 1692 Salem filed a complaint against Dr. Roger Toothaker for witchcraft, and he was taken to Boston Prison. He had been accused by Elizabeth Hubbard, Ann Putnam, Jr., and Mary Walcott, who had accused many of witchcraft. Elizabeth Hubbard was the 17 year-old servant of Dr. William Griggs of Andover, a rival doctor. Dr. Griggs was a witchcraft conspirator, he used his 17 year-old servant to accuse many of witchcraft. On 28 May, Mary Toothaker, her 9 year-old daughter Margaret, Martha Carrier (Mary Allin Toothaker's sister) of Andover, and Elizabeth (Jackson) Howe of Ipswich Farms (a cousin in law) were arrested for witchcraft. Roger died 16 June 1692, in Boston Prison, he had probably been tortured. There is not a record of torture, it was most likely covered up as 24 men inspected the body to confirm he died of natural causes.

TOOTHAKER. 1. Roger came in the ship Hopewell. Thomas Babb, master, 1635, Sept. 16 ; age 1 year. 'His father, Roger, aged 23, died after the birth of a daughter, Martha, who m. Ralph Hill, 2, and his mother Margaret, aged 28, m. 1638, Ralph Hill, sen'. He had "leave to abyde in "Charlestown, 1654. and "6. 9mo. 1660. The town of Billerica have granted unto Roger Toothaker lyberty to live in ye Towne, and to settle upon and Improve yt lot which his father Ralph Hill, sen., gave him, which Iyeth in the great comon feild on ye East side of Concord River, below ye great bridge; also the Towne do grant him comonage and herbage, wood and timber, for his use," Here he had his home, which was prob.. when built, the extreme northern house in town. It is said to be still standing as the 'ell' of the Rogers house at the place where the canal leaves the river. In 1664. he exchanged about five acres which lay west of the road for twelve acres "lying on both sides, and taking in that long spang of meadow up° the pine plaine, on this side the comon feild, on the East side of it." This exchange was doubtless made to secure to the town the mill privilege for future use. He seems to have practised medicine, and was called 'doctor' at Salem, but our Records do not give the title. In 1682-3, March 12. at a Selectmen's meeting. "Roger Toothaker, being sent for and spoken unto concerning many things amiss in his family, he desired they would exercise a little more patience towards him, and he promised amendm't " But the amendment was not thorough; and 1684, Dec. 15, the Selectmen wrote a letter to him. prob. at Salem, where he seems to have gone, "to come for his wife ye midle of next week, and that they would help away with his family — in case of need and help fit them out." There was "need" enough, but he did not heed it. His wife received charitable aid, and two of his children were put out by the Selectmen to Joseph Walker and Edward Farmer. When the witchcraft trials came, in which his wife's sister, Martha Carrier, suffered, he appears as a ready witness. Abatement of his tax as '"deceased" was made 1694, July.
