About James Green


In his will, James made bequests to four children, John Crocker and Esther Frothingham, and to his two granddaughters, Rebecca White, daughter of his son James, and Elizabeth Green, daughter of his son Richard.

James married Rebecca Jones on November 19, 1661.


From Cape Cod Library of Local History and Genealogy, page 1009-1010, Clearfield Company, 2004.

"In his will, James Green made bequests to his four children, John Crocker and Esther Frothingham, and to his two granddaughters, Rebecca White, daughter of his son James, and Elizabeth Green, daughter of his son Richard."

This does not seem conclusive but it is recorded that James and Rebecca had a daughter, Esther, born in Boston on September 27, 1674. And it is reported that James and Rebecca actually had 7 children born between 1662 and 1680 and I will look for notices of those births in Massachusetts Vital records.

Children born to James and Rebecca Green(e) (Massachusetts Births and Christenings, 1639-1915 - from familysearch.org) Elizabeth Greene b Boston, November 14, 1662 James Green b Boston, December 15, 1664 Richard Green b Boston, April 7, 1669 John Green b Boston, February 24, 1671 Esther Green b Boston, September 27, 1674

Another list gives 7 children: Elizabeth 1662, James 1665, Thomas 1666, Richard 1669, John 1671, Esther 1675 and Samuel 1680.

Elizabeth married Thomas Crocker Esther married (William) Frothingham This James is a son of James Green. His son James is said to have been captain of the ship "Success" in 1688-1689.

This area was settled by the Rumney Marsh Indians of the Pawtucket Tribe. English Capt. John Smith discovered it in 1614. Samuel Maverick settled here in 1624. Called Number Thirteen, it was annexed to Boston in 1634, where its earliest history lies. Rumney Marsh was divided among twenty-one citizens of Boston, but consolidated into seven farms by 1639. The village of Winnissimet grew up where the ferry linked it to Boston one and a half miles away (twenty miles by land). The northern part of Boston was set off as Chelsea in 1739. The last divisions were the northeast side was set off as North Chelsea in 1846 and shortly after the southern portion of this new town was set off as Winthrop in 1852.
