John Hoar, son of first family who located in New England by this name, was a lawyer, distinguished for bold manly independence. He resided in Scituate. Massachusetts, from 1643 to i(>55. It was about 1660 when he settled in Concord, and died April 2, 1704. His wife, Alice Lyle. sister of Bridget Lisle, who married Leonard Hoar, died June 5, 1697. Their children included Elizabeth, who. December. 1675, married Jonathan Prescott; Mary, married Benjamin Graves. October 21. 1668: and Daniel, married (first) Mary Stratton, (second) Mary Lee. The Hoar family were among the early Bay colonists, and some true conception of their character may be had by referring to a matter of Xew England history, wherein it is recorded that after the Indian massacre at Lancaster, at the time of King Philip's war, John Hoar, at the request of the colonial authorities, followed the Indian band far into the wilderness, and after great hardship and the exercise of great ingenuity, recovered by ransom Mrs. Rowlandson, a lady captive from Lancaster. Her account of her ransom is published. The rock where she was redeemed is close by the base of Wachusett Mountain, and has been marked by Senator Hoar by a suitable inscription.

He was an a lawyer. The only original records I've seen only names his wife as "Alice". I have seen nothing which allows me to assign her any last name, much less a specific parentage. Parents: Charles HOARE The Younger and Joanna HINKSMAN.

Spouse: Alice LISLE. Alice LISLE and John HOARE were married. "Hoar/Hoare family" says she is the mother of John's children. This needs investigation. If true, she is a serious gateway ancestor.

He aided in getting a young mother and her child returned from the Indians that had abducted them by going to the Indian encampment and securing a ransom and negotiated for their release. The ransom was a pint of rum. The story can be found in the book Worcester Legends by William Andrew Emerson published 1905. Monument which is a rock has a plaque. Birth is abt 1622
