About John Emery, IV

There is some question as to the date of marriage, whether it is the marriage of his father John to Mrs. Mary WEBSTER, or this John to M iss Mary WEBSTER.

The original Newbury, MA record reads, "John EMERY m. Mary WEBSTER, O ct. _ _." The date just before is 1648, and the one just after is 1651. The Newbury town COPY inser ts "wid. John of Ip." and "29, 1650." It looks as if the date of marriage for John Sr., 29 Oc t 1650, and the date of marriage for this John Jr., 2 Oct 1648, are different interpretation s of the one original record "Oct __."

Biography

JOHN EMERY JR. m. 2 Oct. 1648 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts MARY WEBSTER b. 1630 d. 3 Feb. 1709 d/o John and Mary (Shatswell) Webster. there is still controversy as to his wife's and others say that we was married more than once - the list of wives

Came with his father to Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts in 1635 Selectman, 1670-3; jury of trials, 1675-6; chosen to carry votes to Salem 1675-6; took oath of allegiance and fidelity, 1678; chosen to serve on jury of trails at Ipswich; tything-man, 1679; way-warden, 1679. In 1642 he laid out for him fourscore acres over the Artichoke or Raspberry River. Forty of these acres were a grant of the town of Newbury, Massachusetts to John Emery Sr. and by him given to his son in consideration of love and affection. The remaining forty acres were bought of Archeleaus Woodman for thirty pounds, being a town grant to him.

This tract of land has been in possession of the name ever since it was laid out to John Emery Jr.; it is now included in the farm of the late Eliphalet Emery, esq. of W. Newbury, and in 1890 when the Emery genealogy was compiled it was owned by his daughter Mary Hale Emery.

On 3 Mar. 1679  "The town of Newbury granted John Emery Jr. twelve acres of land on the west side of the Artichoke River providing he build and maintain a corn mill to grind the town's corn from  time to time and to build within one year and a half after the date hereof."  The  new mill  was needed  because of the ever expanding population of Newbury  and  expanded into  an area  which was  the Second Parish,  and which is known today as West Newbury.  The mill remained in the Emery family until 1761 when Jonathan Bagley of  Amesbury purchased it from Stephen Emery, the grandson of John Emery, Jr.  

This mill is was known as Curzon's Mill in 1890 and is still standing and known by that name today it is located at the east end of Emery Lane, on the other side of the Artichoke River, and is visible from the refectory of the Emery House and accessible by walking across the wooden bridge. The river was aptly named 'Artichoke River' because of the Jerusalem artichokes that grew along its banks. They were a staple of the local Indian diet and were adapted into Anglo-American cookery as well. John Emery Jr. was a signer of the Woodman party in the church difficulties.

He is styled as Sgt. in the records.  He was made a freeman 30 May 1660 [made free 6 Mar. 1653/4];  made his will 3 Aug. 1693. Newbury, Massachusetts  He d. 3 Aug. 1693 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts
