  • The immigrant ancestor of the Hatch family of Buffalo, New York, herein recorded, was a son of Sir Walter Hatch, of England.
  • (I) William Hatch, the first of his name in America, and one of the earliest settlers of Scituate, Massachusetts, was born in Sandwich, Kent county, England, from which place he emigrated to America before 1633. In the course of a year or two he went back to England for his family, and returned in March, 1635, in the ship "Hercules," with his wife Jane, five children and six servants. He settled in Scituate in Kent street in 1634, prior to his return to England, and on arriving the second time, with his family, resumed his residence there. He kept a store and was rated a merchant of ability. He was a very active and useful man in town and church, being lieutenant of militia and the first ruling elder of the Second Church of Scituate, which was founded in 1644. He died November 6, 1651. Thomas Hatch, supposed to have been an elder brother of William, lived first in Dorchester, but moved to Scituate, where he died in 1646. leaving five children: Jonathan, William, Thomas, Alice and Hannah. Children of William and Jane Hatch, all born in England : Jane, married John Lovell ; Annie, married, 1648, Lieutenant James Torrey ; Walter, of further mention : Hannah, married, 1648, Samuel Utley ; William, died in Virginia, about 1646, married Abigail Hewes, and had Phoebe; Jeremiah, died in 1713, married, in 1657, Mary Hewes, and had fourteen children.
  • (II) Walter, eldest son of Elder William and Jane Hatch, was born in England, in 1623: died in Scituate, Massachusetts, March, 1701. He is on the list of those capable of bearing arms in 1643. He settled on a point of land in Scituate, southeast of the Second Society's meeting house, and spent his life in farming. He married (first) May 6, 1650, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Jane Holbrook, of Weymouth, who was mother of all his children. He married (second) Mary —— , of Marshfield, August 5, 1674. Children, all born in Scituate : Hannah, born March 13, 1651 : Samuel, December 22, 1653, farmer and shipwright; Jane, March 7, 1656; Antipas, October 26, 1658, died unmarried, December 7, 1705; Bethia, March 31, 1661, married, 1683, Michael Ford; John, July 8, 1664, died August, 1737; Israel, of further mention ; Joseph, December 9, 1669.
  • (III) Israel, son of Walter and Elizabeth (Holbrook) Hatch, was born in Scituate, Massachusetts, March 25, 1667, died October, 1740. He married, July 27, 1699, Elizabeth Hatch, a kinswoman. Children : Lydia, born October 16, 1699; Israel (2), May 5, 1701, married Mary Hatch, had Bethial Thomas, born October 27, 1725 ; Elizabeth, January 22, 1704, married Samuel Oakman, of Marshfield, January 6, 1725; David, of further mention; Jonathan, October 28, 1709.
  • (IV) David, son of Israel and Elizabeth Hatch, was born April 9, 1707. He married, March 7, 1731, Elizabeth Chittenden. Children : Zephaniah, of further mention ; David, born May 2, 1735; Desire, January 24, 1740; Thomas, May 20, 1743 ; Lucy, March 29, 1746; Rachel, October 12, 1748.
  • (V) Zephaniah, eldest son of David and Elizabeth (Chittenden) Hatch, was born in Scituate, Massachusetts, March 18, 1732, and died in Pembroke, Massachusetts, November 19, 1815. He married there (second) May 7, 1771, Mary Vinal. (Published intentions of marriage add a "Mrs." to her name.) This is no doubt a second wife. The vital records of Scituate do not contain his death nor the birth of any of his children, these being recorded at Pembroke, Massachusetts. Three of his name, Zephaniah, served in the revolution, from Pembroke, Massachusetts, the first two in Captain Thomas Turner's company, in 1775, three days, and again in 1777, one month and three days. This is undoubtedly Zephaniah Sr. in both cases. He enlisted again in 1778, in Captain Ichabod Bonney's company, serving two months and eleven days. (Massachusetts Records). The third name is undoubtedly Zephaniah (2), son of Zephaniah (1). He also served from Pembroke, as sergeant of Captain Freedom Chamberlain's company, in

  • 1775, and served under several enlistments until 1780. Children of first wife, name not known: Josiah, of further mention; Deborah, baptized May 3, 1761 ; Ruth, September 9, 1764; Sarah, October 12, 1766. Child of second wife: Lucinda, baptized November 8, 1772.
  • (VI) Josiah, son of Zephaniah (1) and Mary (Vinal) Hatch, was born 1754, in Pembroke, Massachusetts, and baptized September 18, 1759. He served in the revolution from Pembroke, as a private in Captain Freedom Chamberlain's company ; marched March 5, 1776, served five days with the company when it marched on the alarm of March 5, 1776, at the time of taking Dorchester Heights ; also in Captain John Turner's company. Colonel Theophilus Cotton's regiment, marched September 28, 1777, service one month three days. Family authorities say that he served as surgeon. He married, in Duxbury, Massachusetts, November 7, 1779, Elizabeth Weston, and settled in Granville, Massachusetts.
  • (VII) Junius Hopkins, son of Josiah and Elizabeth (Weston) Hatch, was born in Granville, Massachusetts, about 1795, died in Buffalo, New York, April 20, 1869. He obtained a good education, and for several years taught school. During these years he prepared for the profession of law under the perceptorship of Judge William Van Ness and Ogden Edwards. He was admitted to the bar, and in 1839 settled in Buffalo, New York, where he engaged in the practice of his profession and dealt in real estate, dealing extensively in Michigan lands. He not only was instrumental in sending many settlers to that state, but with his wife became pioneer settlers. They settled near what is now St. Joseph, Michigan, where he cleared a farm and founded a settlement. While he was so engaged his wife, who was an earnest missionary worker, opened a mission school, the first in the state. After enduring the perils and hardships of the pioneer and helping to create a state, he returned to Buffalo, which he had always considered his home, and passed his last days in that city in the enjoyment of the wealth his pioneer enterprise had brought him. He was a man of great learning and energy. He took a leader's part wherever he was, and always commanded the respect of his fellows. He was elected to the New York state assembly and served with credit. He married, in 1835, Sarah Catherine Mitchell, of New York City, born 1815, died 1847. Children who grew to maturity: 1. Junius Hopkins (2), born in Monroe, Michigan, April 5, 1837 ; now a resident of Lansing, Michigan ; married Anna Robinson, and has Lottie, Elsie and Roger Conant. 2. Edward N., born in New York City, February 8, 1841 ; married, February 24, 1873, Mary Thayer. Children : William, Albert, Rose and Conant. 3. Albert Gallatin, of further mention. 4. William B., born September 2, 1845, died October 19, 1868; unmarried. 5. Grace B., born October 27, 1849 ; unmarried.
  • (VIIl) Albert Gallatin, son of Junius Hopkins and Sarah Catherine (Mitchell) Hatch, was born in Buffalo, New York, February 21, 1842. His early education was obtained in old public school No. 18. He finished his education at Ann Arbor, Michigan, graduating from the high school. After leaving school his father put him and his brother Edward N. on the farm near St. Joseph, Michigan, thinking to give them a good start in life. He sent them a large number of peach trees with which to start their orchards, but the boys were having a good time fishing and hunting, and left the tree planting for another time. When a year later their father visited the farm, instead of a thriving orchard he found the trees in the original bundles, lying on the ground. He decided the boys were not intended for farmers and all returned to Buffalo. Here Albert G. secured a position in the Manufacturers and Traders' Bank, which he filled for one year, then became clerk in a leather and wool house, where he remained for some time, and after becoming thorough master of the business engaged in the same line on his own account. He formed a partnership with Hartwell Bowen, and as Bowen & Hatch did a very successful business for several years. The death of Mr. Bowen dissolved the firm, Mr. Hatch disposing of his interest. He then began dealing in real estate, and for many years has been one of Buffalo's energetic and successful operators. His greatest interest is perhaps in the pursuit of the study of archaeology, and in the gathering of what is said to be the finest private collection in existence. He is an authority on this most valuable science that supplies the material which neither history nor present information can furnish, concerning the relics of man and his industries, and the classification and treatment of ancient remains and records of every kind, historic or prehis-

  • toric of ancient places and customs. He has devoted a great deal of time and money to gathering his collection, which, as stated, is considered by experts as one of the finest in existence. In politics he is a Republican. He married (first), 1866, Charlotte Spicer, who died, leaving two children : Katherine, married Baron Alexander Van Schroeder, of Germany ; and Anna. He married (second), January 25, 1889. Kate M. Smith, of Orange, New Jersey.

    • (The Holbrook Line).
  • Elizabeth Holbrook. wife of Walter Hatch (see Hatch), was of English descent, perhaps birth. Her father, Thomas Holbrook, born in Brantry, England, came to America in 1635, with his wife Jane and four children, two more being born in America. He settled in Weymouth, Massachusetts, where he became a man of wealth and prominence. He was one of the original grantees of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, but for not removing to his lands there they were forfeited in 1645. He owned lands in Scituate. Massachusetts, where his sons, Captain William and Thomas (2) removed in 1660. Captain William purchased land in Conihassett and made permanent settlement. Thomas, however, only remained until after his marriage in Scituate to Deborah Daman, then shortly after returned to Weymouth. Thomas was selectman of Weymouth, 1645-46-51-54. He was elected representative to the general court, 1649, and was one of the committee to lay out the highway between' Weymouth and Dorchester. Thomas and Jane Holbrook had three sons and three daughters, as named in his will, which was probated April 24, 1677. although made December 31, 1668, with codicil, five years later. His -wife Jane survived him. The will recites : "To wife Jane all my estate during her life," (requesting sons John. William and Thomas to be helpful to her) "as she is ancient and weak of body." His property was afterward to be divided between the three sons and "my three daughters. Ann Reynolds, Elizabeth Hatch and Jane Drake." Elizabeth married Walter Hatch, who was of the second generation in America, and progenitor of Albert Gallatin Hatch, of the eighth generation.


She is identified as the daughter of Samuel Holbrook in Genealogy of the Buck Family": by Richards, but there is no documentation to support this. Torrey is confusing as he says John Buck m1 Susan --?-- "not Elizabeth Holbrook" and that he m2 Susan/?Sarah (Faunce) Doten/Doty. Buck in his "Isaac Buck of Scituate" suggests she might have been Elizabeth Granger, dau. of Thomas & Grace, but Anderson in "The Mayflower Descendant", Vol. 42, disproves that allegation. Davis in "Mass. and Maine Families" says Elizabeth, dau. of Samuel Holbrook, m1 13 Dec 1666, John Sprague, and m2 John Buck. But ehere soesn't seem to be anything to clearly identify this Elizabeth swo we will leave her last name blank.
