About Roger T. Toothacher

Note : Roger Toothaker was raised by his mother and stepfather; his father died when he was about 4 years old. After he and Mary Allen married, they settled in Billerica, Massachusetts, on land left to him by his stepfather.

They had nine children born between 1666 and 1683. Records indicate that he was a poor husband. In 1682-83, he was brought before the selectmen and “spoken unto concerning many things amiss in his family.” In 1684, he was living in Salem, Massachusetts, although his wife and children remained in Billerica. On December 15, 1684, the selectmen sent him a letter asking him to come for his family. Apparently he did not respond so the town aided his wife and “bound out” two of his children. This meant that the children went to live with another family for a time, as servants, to pay off debts through their labor.

Roger practiced as a doctor, although he must have been self-taught. He was living in Salem without his wife and family in 1692 during the witch scare. Although not one of the better know Salem “witches’, he was accused of practicing witchcraft along with about 50 other people. He was brought before the court on May 20, 1692: “The Deposition of Thomas Gage Aged aboute thirty six years This deponent saith & doth testifie that sometime this Last spring of ye year, that Doctor Toothaker was in his

house in Beuerly (upon some occasion) & was discoursed about John Marstons Childe of Salem that was then sick and having unwonted fits and Likewise

another Childe of Philip Whites of Beuerly who was then strangely sick. I persuaded said Toothaker to goe and see said Children and said Toothaker answered he had seen them both already and his opinion was that they were under and Evill hand And farther said Toothaker said that his Daughter had killed a witch and I asked him how she did it and said Toothaker answered readily that his daughter had learned something from him..."”

He was sent to prison in Boston to await trail on the charges. He was about 58 years old at the time. It is assumed that he died on prison as no records have been found to indicate either that he was brought to trail or released. He was deceased by July of 1694 when there was an abatement on his taxes due to death.

Mary (Allen) Toothaker did not outlive her estranged husband long. She was slain by indians in a raid on Billerica, Massachusetts, on August 5, 1695. Their youngest child, Margaret, was taken captive in that raid and nothing more was heard of her.

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.

Mary Toothaker was examined by John Hawthorne on 30 July 1692. She said that she feared the Indians so much that she had made a pact with the Devil to protect her. Of course knowing how the Witchcraft Trials were conducted, the confession was either fabricated or coerced, though she probably did greatly fear the Indians. The area had been attacked by the Indians numerous times in the preceding few years. Her and her daughter Margaret stayed in prison. Two days after the examination the Indians attacked Billerica, burning the vacant Toothaker house. At the end of January 1693 the were freed and went back home to the burned out house. Mary Toothaker went on helping sick people. Martha Carrier was condemned and hanged as a witch, on the testimonies of many people, including Roger Toothaker's son Allin. This family again suffered in the Indian massacre of Billerica of 5 August 1695. Mary Allin Toothaker was killed, and daughter Margaret was captured by the Indians, never to be seen again.

About Rebecca:

"This was the period of the witchcraft troubles and trials, towhich,

however, the Billerica Records make no allusion. The aid givento Toothaker's family betrays his neglect of them while engagedin the Salem Fooleries; and the deaths of Mrs. RebeccaChamberline and John Durrent, "in ye prison at Cambridge." inSeptember and October 1692, suggest the inference of Mr. Farmer,that the charge on which they were imprisoned was probablywitchcraft.

A Billerica woman, whose later residence had been Andover, Mrs.

Martha Carrier (hanged August 19, 1692) (Martha Carrier wascondemned and hanged as a witch, on the testimonies of manypeople, including Roger Toothaker's son Allin.), became one ofthe most notable of the sufferers, being executed at the sametime with the Reverend George Burroughs (hanged August 19,1692). Her bearing at the trial is distinguished by courage andgood sense, and must challenge the admiration of those whoexamine the dreary literature of this terrible delusion. Her ownchild of eight testified, that her mother made her "touch thebook; it was in Andrew Fuller's pasture. Elizabeth Johnson wasthere, her Aunt Toothaker and cousin, when she was baptized";and Roger Toothaker (died in jail June 16 1692)

(Dr. Toothaker had claimed to many people that his daughter(Martha Emerson) had killed a witch. On 18 May 1692 Salem fileda complaint against Dr. Roger Toothaker for witchcraft, and hewas taken to Boston Prison. He had been accused by ElizabethHubbard, Ann Putnam, Jr., and Mary Walcott, who had accused manyof witchcraft.

That good men could trust such testimony, and restsuch action upon it, is an unexplained marvel of humancredulity."

He was one of the victims of the Salem witch trials who died in prison.

Roger Toothaker was born in England in 1634. In 1635 Toothaker travelled to Boston from London sailing from August 21 to September 11 on the Hopewell, led by Captain Babb. Afterwards in 1638 his father, Roger Toothaker, died, possibly in Plymouth on February 5. Later that year his mother Margaret married Ralph Hill on December 21 and they lived in Billerica. He served as an assistant to Samuel Eldred, and later became a physician although he had no formal medical training. Around 1662 to 1663 his stepfather Ralph Hill died. In 1665 he married Mary Allin and had nine children, Nathaniel, Martha, Allin, Roger, Sarah, Mary, Mary, Andrew, and Margaret.[1] His daughter Mary died the year she was born, and another child born the next year was given her name. In 1683 Margaret was born and Nathaniel, the second-born Mary, and Dr. Toothaker's mother died.

Dr. Toothaker claimed to many people that his daughter, Martha, had killed a witch. On May 18, 1692 Elizabeth Hubbard, Ann Putnam, Jr., and Mary Walcott accused Dr. Toothaker of witchcraft. Elizabeth was the servant of Dr. William Griggs, Dr. Toothaker's competitor. On May 28 Mary Toothaker, his nine-year-old daughter Margaret, Martha Carrier, and Elizabeth Jackson were arrested. John Willard of Salem, Thomas Farrar of Lynn, and Elizabeth Hart were arrested along with Dr. Toothaker. Dr. Toothaker was sent to Boston Prison where he remained until his death. In June 1692, Dr. Toothaker died in prison. As his body was examined, by 24 different men, it was confirmed that he died of natural causes although it is believed that he was ill-treated.[1]
