About John Tucker, of Hingham

brief biography

Mentioned in Daughters of the American Revolution magazine, Volume 54 By Daughters of the American Revolution


The Tuckers* claim descent from Teucer, 1st King of Troy, whom the Trojans called Teukroy (Tuckers).

One of the same name was the best archer among the Greeks, supposed to be the brother of Ajax.

The most skilful gem engraver the world has ever known was a Teucer (Tucker), who lived in Rome in the time of Augustus.

John Tucker, first of the name in England, was at the Battle of Hastings, October 14, 1066, under William the Conqueror & was granted by him the Coat of Arms in 1079 & also the estate of Tavistock, County Devon.

A direct descendant, Wilhelmus Tucker, married Josea Ashe, & their son George married Maria, daughter of John Hunter, of Gaunt. Queen Elizabeth conveyed the Manor at Milton-next-Gravesend to this George Tucker in 1572. The Tuckers also went into Wales, where they held, for over 400 years, the Sedlyham property & used the same coat-of-arms.

George, John & Robert Tucker, grandsons of the George previously mentioned, left England in 1636 & went to Bermuda, where a relative of theirs, Captain Daniel Tucker, had been commissioned Governor Feb. 15, 1615. George, being heir to his father's estate of Tavistock, County Devon, returned to England after the troubles there had been settled. John & Robert came to Massachusetts, Robert settling in Weymouth & John in Hingham. John's son Jabez settled in Westerly, Rhode Island."



">Errata and Addenda:   Pg 2. Gives a presentation trying to make the case that Ann, widow of William "Nolton" of Hingham, who married John Tucker, and died October 8, 1675, is the immigrant widow and mother of the Knowlton brothers. However, he quotes portions of her will and she gives legacies to others who appear to be from her first marriage, not any of them being Knowltons that I know of."
