About Daniel Hovey, Sr

Daniel was apparently a man of education, and the fact that the curate of his parish church was friendly to and interested in him while he was in his teens and far away in a strange land, indicates that there were elements in his character which drew and held attention to him. He was one of the early settlers of Ipswich, Essex Co., Massachusetts, in 1635, at the age of seventeen.

Daniel Hovey, the first settler, father of James Hovey Sr., came from England to Ipswich in 1633 and his house was standing there until 1894 when it was destroyed by fire. He was interested in the settlement of Brookfield and went thither in 1668 remaining until the town was abandoned by the settlers on account of King Philip's War. He finally returned to Ipswich where he died April 24 1692. He married Abigail Andrews daughter of Robert Andrews one of the first tavern keepers of Ipswich.

This person migrated to New England during the Puritan Great Migration (1620-1640). He held several town offices in Ipswich, being chosen one of the selectman, a surveyor of highways and a constable. In the Ipswich Antiquarian papers is a drawing of his house supposed to have been built in 1668, with this statement: "The very ancient dwelling and wharf at the northerly end of Turkey Shore, where built and owned by Daniel Hovey, the ancester of the Ipswich Hovey. In May 1660, a colony went from Ipswich to Quaboag, a place subsequently named Brookfield; and Daniel Hovey along with sons James and Thomas joined in 1668. Daniel was living in Quaboag in May 1672, but had moved to Hadley before the massacre at Quaboag in 1675 that killed his son James. While living in Hadley, he suffered much at the hands of the Indians and was a sharer in providing defense for the town."
