About Capt. Richard Hunnewell

On September 7, 1703 the selectmen of Portsmouth NH bound twin brothers Israel and Richard Hunnewell Jr (alias Nason) aged about one month to George Vaughn, Esq. for 24 years by advice and consent of Joanna Nason, the natural mother. The mother alone was haled into court, so the fathers name is not of record, but suspicion is strong that he was the military hero Captain Richard Hunnewell, who set feminine hearts aflutter. Cpt. Richard was born abt. 1645 and lived in Scarborough. He was the son of Roger who came from Devon County, England, and was in Boston in 1650, and in West Saco in 1653. Cpt. Richard was killed by Indians in 6 Oct 1703. Joanna Nason was the daughter of John and Hannah (Heard) Nason. The Twins (Hunnewell) were received into covenant of South Church in Portsmouth 23 Feb 1729 and were taxed in 1730-32. Israel was of Berwick 1736-49 and served in Cpt. Moses Butler's Company in the Louisberg Expedition. Israel went to Wiscasset before 1751. On 13 July 1775 Israel conveyed to his son Israel, the farm in Wiscasset where he then lived. The date and place of his marriage and all information of his wife is unknown.
