About Mark Graves

Mark Graves (3) was born about 1623 in England, and died about 1708-9 in Lynn, Essex Co., Mass. He was brought to America by his father in 1630. He first married Amy ‑‑‑‑‑‑, probably about 1648, in Andover, Essex Co., Mass. She was born about 1627, and died 20 Feb. 1665 in Andover. He lived in Lynn, Mass. until about 1658, when he moved to Andover. He secondly married Elizabeth Knights, daughter of William and Elizabeth Knights of Lynn, on 14 Nov. 1667 (according to Marriages in Andover, N.E. Hist. and Gen. Register, vol. III, no. 1, p. 66). She was born 1642 and died in 1705. She was the widow of John Farrington, a cooper, and at one time a resident of Marblehead, Mass. Mark Graves lived for a time at Ipswich in 1678, at Andover in 1683, at Manchester in 1686, at Andover again in 1690, and afterwards and until his death at Lynn.

From Ipswich Court Records of 1665, Essex County Quarterly Court Records: "Marke Graves, aged about 45 years, deposed that on 10:6:1665, about an hour before sunset, Hanah Hutchinson came to his house, his daughter only being home, and asked to borrow some strong liquor for the toothache. His daughter did not consent, and said Hanah told her that a cow of her father's was running away from their pasture, and she ran to tell her father who was at a neighbor's house, not far off, leaving said Hanah in the room where there was a bottle of liquor. Deponent found that his cow was in the pasture and the bottle was nearly empty. His wife said there was a quarter of a pint there, etc. Sworn 12:6:1665 before Simon Bradstreete.

Hanah Hutchinson said that the girl told her there was vinegar in the bottle, etc. Also that she would kill the child or herself, etc."

Hanah was severely whipped for lying, cursing and stealing. From Salem Quarterly Court Records of June 1677: "Mark Graves, aged about fifty-five years, and Elizabeth, his wife, aged about thirty-seven years, deposed that since Hannah, wife of Mr. John Blaine died, said Blaine and six of his children came from Mr. Ralph King's to dwell at the farmhouse where deponents and they lived under one roof. When the children came they were decently clothed, but during the three quarters of a year that they lived there, he did not provide for them and they suffered very much, and had it not been for their friends through pity taking some of them from him and relieving them, they might have perished. They suffered both for food and raiment, and what money Blaine received for wood or timber or for the work of his team was spent in drink, he coming home late at night in a quarrelsome mood and distempered with drink. He had only one cow to provide for the family, etc. Amy, daughter of Mark Graves, aged about seventeen years, deposed the same. Sworn in court."

From Salem Quarterly Court Records of June 1682: "Mathew Farrington, Sr. v. Mark Graves. Verdict for plaintiff. Appealed to the next Court of Assistants. Defendant bound, with Henry Bailey and Phillip Fowler as sureties.

Writ: Matthew Farrington, Sr. v. Mark Graves, living at Mr. Hubard's farm at Ipswich; for not allowing him disbursements upon the tide mill and housing amounting to 20 li., for his part of said mill and housing being so much better at the end of the lease than when he entered upon it; signed by John Fuller, for the court and town of Lynn; and served by Henery Skerry, marshal of Salem, by attachment of a table and great chair of defendant..."
