  • Edward Banges the pilgrim : a narrative (1916)
  • Pg.10
  • Edward Bangs was twice married. First to Lydia, daughter of Robert and Margaret Hicks. This marriage took place probably about 1633. While there were ten children born to the two marriages, Robert and Margaret Hicks mention only one grandchild, John Bangs, in their wills, and Joshua Bangs makes no mention of John Bangs in his will, but leaves bequests to all the other children of the family. These circumstances appear to bear out the opinion of Dean Dudley that Lydia bore but one child, John, and that she probably died soon afterward and that the second marriage took place soon and that nine children were the fruit of this union.
  • In Charles E. Mayo's Mortuary Records (p. 71) it is recorded: - "Captain Jonathan, son of Edward and Rebecca Bangs, b. 1640 m. 1st. Mary M. Mayo." This apparently fixes the date of the second marriage previous to 1640 instead of "about 1649" as is given by some writers. Also the Cole family records refer to Captain Jonathan as the son of Edward and Rebecca. To the writer it seems probable that the second marriage occurred about 1655 and that the first daughter (born 1636) was named Rebecca for her mother.
  • In the absence of records bearing specifically upon the matter it is the general supposition that Edward Bangs married second, Rebecca ---- probably Tracy. Recently the suggestion has been advanced that the second wife was Rebecca the sister of Rev. Peter Hobart. This is supported to some extent by some traditions in the family, but no positive information has been thus far disclosed and the query "Who was Rebecca" remains unanswered.
  • The following dates of birth of his children may not be entirely correct, but are based upon the best data available.
    • John Bangs, b. 1634, m. Rebecca Smalley;
    • Rebecca, b. 1636, m. Jonathan Sparrow;

  • Bangs, Edward - Arriving at Plymouth in 1623 on the Anne, Edward Bangs was probably born ca. 1591, for he said he was age eighty-six in 1677. Dawes-Gates (2:61-68) has a section on him and cites the evidence to show that he was probably identical with the Edward Bangs who was baptized on 28 October 1591 in Panfield, Essex, England, the son of John and Jane (Chavis) Bangs. he married (1) after 1627 Lydia Hicks, daughter of Robert and Margaret Hicks (she may have been the second wife, for Dawes-Gates suggests that he may have had an earlier one, and, (2) Rebecca (?Hobart). He was one of the Purchasers, and he was on the 1632/33 freeman list. He was one of those chosen to lay out the twenty-acre lots in the 1627 division, along with William Bradford, Edward Winslow, John Howland, Francis Cooke, and Joshua Pratt (PCR 12:14). With Myles Standish and others, Edward Bangs was chosen in 1633 to divide the meadow in the bay equally (PCR 1:14). He was also on committees to assess the entire colony for public costs (PCR1:33, 38), and he served on various juries and other public service committees (PCR). He appears to be a man who was responsible and trusted. In a record where he was surety for another, he was called yeoman (PCR 1:103). In 1641 he was granted eighty acres of land at Warren's Wells, and in 1642 he was allowed to exchange some of it for land closer to his house (PCR 2:25, 48). He moved to Nauset with the Prence group, and in 1647 he was a supervisor of the highways there (PCR 2:115).
  • In 1652 he became a deputy for Eastham (PCR 3:9) and in 1657 was licensed to sell wine and strong waters at Eastham "provided it bee for the refreshment of the English and not to bee sold to the Indians" (PCR 3:123). In a deed of 22 June 1651, he was joined as grantor by his wife Rebecca (PCR 12:209). He made his will on 19 Oct. 1677, calling himself aged eighty-six years, and he named his sons: Jonathan, John, Joshua; his daughter Howe, daughter Higgens, daughter Hall, daughter Merrick, and daughter Atwood; the children of his daughter Rebecca, deceased; and his son Jonathan's oldest son Edward (Ply. Colony PR 3:2:106). In an agreement of 6 March 1677/78, Jonathan Bangs agreed that the land bequeathed to his son Edward could be used by Jonathan's brother John until Edward came of age (PR 3:2:105). Dawes-Gates 2: 67 gives his children from his marriage to Lydia Hicks as: John, who married Hannah Smalley, and from his marriage to Rebecca (Possibly Hobart), Rebecca, who married Jonathan Sparrow; Sarah, who married Thomas Howes, Jr.; Jonathan, who married (1) Mary Mayo, (2) Sarah __, and (3) Ruth (Cole) Young; Lydia who married (1) Benjamin Higgins, and (2) Nicholas Snow; Hannah, who married John Done; Joshua, who married Hannah Scudder; Bethia who married Rev. Gershom Hall; Mercy, who married Stephen Merrick; and Apphia who married (1) John Knowles, and (2) Stephen Atwood.

Will of John Doane

In his will dated May 18, 1678, inventory taken May 21, 1686 and sworn by Abigail Doane May 29, 1686, he named his "loving wife," daughter Abigail, sons John, Daniel and Ephraim, and granddaughter Margaret Hicks, and left the remainder of his estate to "all my sons and daughters". He described himself in the will as "aged eighty and eight or there about" and in the inventory he was said to have died February 21, 1685/86, "aged about a hundred years" - a typical overstatement of age which occurred in those times.
