Misc. Notes

He came to New England and settled at Rowley, Mass. where the first record of him was on 10 Jan 1643/4 when, in a survey of the town, he is shown as having 4-1/2 acres of upland laid out at the Great Plain. He does not appear on the list of those who had house lots at that time. A little later he was shown as having 3 acres laid out for him in Crane Meadow.166

He was on the lists in 1650 as having two oxen and one calf. He had some small land parcels and by Feb. 1661 had acquired 7 and 1/4 gates, or cattle rights, in the town commons, a good number for those times. He received a share in the Hog Island marshes when they were divided and laid out in 1667, also other land parcels from time to time.

On Jan 3 1650/1, at a town meeting, he was chosen one of the four overseers whose duties were to oversee the execution of town orders and highways. He was chosen again in five later years and was a selectman in 1669, and served on jury and other court duties.

An inventory of his estate taken 24 Sep 1683 totalled L374, 4s, 3d. It included his home lot, house, buildings, and land, 15 other parcels of land of from 1 to 60 acres totally 127 acres, 2 pair oxen, 3 horses, cattle, pigs and sheep, and the usual tools, household items, etc. There were no special tradesman’s tools which indicated that he was a farmer.148 167 168 88 169 11, No. 74, pg. 120, 1920

“The origin of this family beyond the sea has not been traced. Recent information locates a family bearing the name in Newcastle-on-Tyne, in the last century, and possibly the fact may afford a clue to the English home of the Puritan Edward.

1. Edward Hazen was the immigrant ancestor. The first mention of the name, which has been found, occurs in the records of Rowley. “Elizabeth, wife of Edward Hassen, was buried 1649 Sept. 18.” He was a man of substance and influence in the town; was overseer or Selectman in 1650, 1651, 1654, 1660, 1661, 1665 and 1668, and judge of delinquents 1666. In the records of surveys, Feb. 4, 1661, he appears entitled to “seven gates.” These related to cattle rights on the town commons; the average number being three, and no one had more than seven. The inventory of his estate amounted to L404:7:8.

Of his first wife, Elizabeth, nothing is known; or where or how long they had been married.

He married (2) in March, 1650, Hannah, dau. of Thomas and Hannah Grant. He was buried in Rowley, July 22, 1683. His widow m. (2) March 17, 1683-4, George Browne of Haverhill, who Sept. 9, 1693, adopted her youngest son Richard as the sole heir to his large estate. Lieut. Browne d. Oct. 31, 1699, aged 76; his wife d. Feb. 1715-16.”165

(I) Edward Hazen, the immigrant ancestor, was born in England. The origin of the name is not known, but a family of the name was located at Newcastle-on-Tyne in the last century. He settled in Rowley, Massachusetts, before 1649, for his wife Elizabeth was buried there September 18, 1649. He was a man of substance and influence in the town; was overseer of the poor, or selectman, in 1650-51-54-60-61-65-68, and a magistrate in 1666. In the records of surveys, February 4, 1661, he appears entitled to “Seven Gates.” These related t cattle rights on the town commons, the average number being three, and no one having more than seven. The inventory of his estate amounted to over four hundred pounds, a large sum for that period. He married (second), in March, 1650, Hannah, daughter of Thomas and Hannah Grant. He was buried in Rowley, July 22, 1683. his widow married (second) March 17, 1684, Lieutenant George Browne, of Haverhill, who adopted her youngest son Richard as sole heir to his large estate, September 9, 1693. Lieutenant Browne died October 31, 1699, aged seventy-six years, his wife February, 1715-5. Children of Edward and Hannah (Grant) Hazen, all born in Rowley: Elizabeth, March 8, 1651; Hannah, September, 1653; John, September 22, 1655; Thomas, Edward, September 10, 1660; Isabel, July 21, 1662; Priscilla, November 25, 1664; Edna, June 20, 1667; Richard, August 6, 1669; Hepzibah, December 22, 1671, died November 29, 1689; Sarah, August 22, 1673.
