About Edward Weymouth

Born in England or maybe aboard ship. Age given as 40 in 1679. (Many Weymouths were mariners and fishermen and owned their own ship in the English records.) Living 1719. Married Dec. 25, 1663 by Capt. Walden at Dover, NH, to Esther Hodsdon (witness deed Mar. 19, 1723), dau. of Nicholas & Esther (Wines) Hodsdon who moved to Kittery (now Eliot) Maine c. 1655 and had a grant of 200 acres. Edward taxed in Dover 1662-63, first record in Kittery 1665. In courst for being absent from church meetings, swearing, etc. Kittery grant 1671. House burned by Indians during King Phillips war in 1677. Where Edward lived was known as the Middle Parish of Kittery, incorporated as the town of Eliot Mar. 1, 1810. Deeded property to son Timothy Mar. 1704-05 effective after he and Esther should die.

After King Charles II gave freedom of worship

to all except Quakers, advised that a sharp law be made against them in 1662. The following was issued:

"You, and every one of you, are required ion the King's Majesty's name, to take these vagabond Quakers Anna Coleman, Mary Tomkins and Alice Ambrose, and make them fast to the carts tail, and drawing the cart through your several towns, to whip them upon their naked backs not exceeding ten stripes a piece on each of them in each town; and so to convey them from Constable to Constable till they are out of the jurisdiction, as you will answer it at your peril; and this shall be your warrant. Per me — Richard Walderne"

This same year the above Quakers came to Dover, they were treated very bad, dragged throu snow and mud and water. Edward Waymouth was the wicked one. (It has been presumed that Edward may have been the Constable in Dover at the time.)

Edward was a tailor and owned at least 50 acres of improved land. Historians have listed only three logical children, but Ichabod a witness 1699, Benj. and Nicholas in Indian Wars 1675, were either sons or brothers.
