  • (I) William Hatch, the first of his name in America, and one of the earliest settlers of Scituate, Massachusetts, was born in Sandwich, Kent county, England, from which place he emigrated to America before 1633. In the course of a year or two he went back to England for his family, and returned in March, 1635, in the ship "Hercules," with his wife Jane, five children and six servants. He settled in Scituate in Kent street in 1634, prior to his return to England, and on arriving the second time, with his family, resumed his residence there. He kept a store and was rated a merchant of ability. He was a very active and useful man in town and church, being lieutenant of militia and the first ruling elder of the Second Church of Scituate, which was founded in 1644. He died November 6, 1651. Thomas Hatch, supposed to have been an elder brother of William, lived first in Dorchester, but moved to Scituate, where he died in 1646. leaving five children: Jonathan, William, Thomas, Alice and Hannah.
