About Elizabeth Sawtell

  • History of the Kimball family in America, from 1634 to 1897 : and of its ancestors the Kemballs or Kemboldes of England; with an account of the Kembles of Boston, Massachusetts by Morrison, Leonard Allison

  • .... etc.
  • Richard Kemball1 came to this country in the ship Elizabeth, William Andrews, master, in 1634. He appears to have gone, soon after landing, to Watertown, Mass. He settled in a different part of the town from that occupied by Henry Kemball1. According to Bond and other writers Richard and Henry were brothers. There is but little evidence to support this supposition, and it seems to be mainly founded on the fact that they both came over on the same vessel. Richard is said on the shipping list to be thirty-nine years old, but he was probably somewhat older. He was, however, in the prime of life, and soon became a prominent and active man in the new settlement.
  • He first settled in Watertown, and his home lot is thus given by Dr. Henry Bond : .... etc.
  • .... Soon after this date he was invited to remove

  • to impswich, where they were in need of a competent man to act as wheelwright to the new settlement. Here he spent the remainder of his days. .... etc.
  • ....
  • Richard Kimball was of the parish of Rattlesden, county of Suffolk, England, as is shown by the following entry on the parish register :
  • https://archive.org/stream/historyofkimball00morr#page/29/mode/1up
  • Henry Kemball ye sonne of Richard and Vrsula his wife baptized 1615 12 of August.
  • Ursula was the daughter of Henry Scott of Rattlesden, as appears from the following extract from Henry Scott's will :
    • .... etc.
  • Richard Kimball married second, Oct. 23, 1661, Margaret Dow, widow of Henry Dow of Hampton, N. H.
  • .... etc.
  • https://archive.org/stream/historyofkimball00morr#page/32/mode/1up
  • .... On the twenty-second of the following June the earthly pilgrimage of Richard Kimball ended, and, aged more than eighty years, he joined the great majority.
  • His wife did not long survive him, but died the succeeding spring, March 1, 1676. Richard Kimball1 was well to do for those early days. The inventory of his estate, which was taken July 12, 1675, and returned to court Sept. 28, 1675, amounted to £737 3s. 6d. He had already given to his children at their marriages.
    • i. Abigail2, b. Rattlesden, county of Suffolk, England; d. in Salisbury, Mass., June 17, 1658. She married in England John Severans, b. __ , d. April 9, 1682, of Salisbury, Mass., who is first styled a planter, afterwards a victualler and vinter. She is not mentioned in the list of passengers, with the others of her father's family, on the Elizabeth. She was in the prime of life at the time of her death. Mr. Severans married, second, Oct. 2, 1663, Susanna, widow of Henry Ambrose. Mr. Ambrose, after having lived in Hampton, N. H., Salisbury, Charlestown, and Boston, died in Boston in 1658.

    • 2 ii. Henry Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, Suffolk county, England. There seems to be some doubt as to Henry's exact age. It is given on the shipping list as aged fifteen, in 1634. This would give the year of his birth as 1619. But it is evident that the ages on the shipping list are only approximate. Henry himself deposes in court, Sept. 28, 1669, that he is aged 53. This would give the year of his birth as 1616. But the parish records at Rattlesden are as follows: "12, Aug, 1615 Henry Kemball ye sone of Richard and Vrsula his wife baptized."
    • iii. Elizabeth Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, 1621. There is no record of her marriage. She was alive in 1675.

    • v. Mary Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, Eng., 1625; m. Robert Dutch of Gloucester and Ipswich, Mass. Mary is wrongly given in many places as the wife of Deacon Thomas Knowlton, historians being misled by her fathers will, as he only mentions the first names of his daughters and does not leave anything to the children of Mary. But in an action for trespass against Richard Kimball, Sr., (in taking a heifer by his grandson Robert Dutch of the yard of Obadiah Wood and detaining the same Mar. 1662), this is shown to be wrong, Robert Dutch, Sr.'s wife was Mary. Savage's Dictionary is wrong in regard to her name. It says she was Mary Roper, daughter of Walter Roper. But Mary Roper was born in 1641. Mary Dutch says in a deposition that she is 36 in 1665, which would give her birth as 1629. Samuel Dutch calls Caleb Kimball2 uncle in deposition in 1664.

  • KEMBALL (Kemble, Kimball).
  • The name Kimball, now borne by so many families in this country, is undoubtedly a corruption, or variation of Kemball or Kemble, a common name in England. In the Watertown records it was almost uniformly written Kemball for several generations.
  • Embarked at Ipswich, Eng., for N. Eng., Ap. 10, 1634, in the Elizabeth, William Andrews, Master, RICHARD KEMBALL, aged 39, with wife URSULA, and chil., 1. HENRY, aged 15. 2. ELIZABETH, aged 13. 3. RICHARD, aged 11. 4. MARY, aged 9. 5. MARTHA, aged 5. 6. JOHN, aged 3 ; and 7. THOMAS, aged 1 year. He settled first in Watertown, of which he was a proprietor, 1636-7, and was adm. freeman. May 6, 1635. He removed to Ipswich, probably in 1637, as in that year, Feb. 23, a house-lot was then granted to him. His son Richard was also a proprietor of Ipswich, in 1648. It was probably his son, "Henry Kemball, Jr.," who was proprietor of a homestall and 3 other lots in Wat., 1642, and who m., in Wat., Nov. 13, 1650, Sarah Farwell. Richard Kemball, Senior, was probably the ancestor of most of the numerous families of the name of Kimball in New England.
  • Also embarked, at the same time, in the same ship, HENRY KEMBALL, aged 44, with wife SUSANNA, aged 35, and chil., 1. ELIZABETH, aged 4 yrs. 2. SUSANNA, aged 18 months, and RICHARD CUTTING, aged 11 years. He was probably an elder brother of Richard Kemball. He settled permanently in Watertown.
  • (I.) HENRY KEMBALL, adm. freeman. May 2, 1638 ; by wife SUSANNA, had 6 children. He died about 1650, and his wid. m. __ LOE. She d. a wid. Aug. 19, 1684.
