About John Wing, Jr.

  • The "Old Northwest" genealogical quarterly (1898)
  • Pg.73
  • By Samuel Carroll Derby, A. M.
  • Professor of Latin, Ohio State University ; Historian of The " Old Northwest " Genealogical Society.
  • Lucius Bliss Wing, a member of the "Old Northwest" Genealogical Society, was born at Wilmington, Vermont, November 15th, 1822, and died at Newark, Ohio, February 1st, 1902. He was a descendant, in the sixth generation, from John1 Wing, whose arrival in America, June 5, 1632, is thus noted by Governor Winthrop in his journal: "Arrived, the William Francis, Mr. Thomas, master ; which left London on the 9th of March, and reached this port [Boston] after a voyage of eighty-eight days, with about sixty passengers, whereof were Mr. Welde and old Mr. Batchelder, being aged 71, with their families, and many other honest men."
  • John1 Wing, with his mother, Deborah Wing, and his three brothers appear to have been considered as a part of the family of "old Mr. Batchelder," his grandfather, and a non-conforming clergyman, whose religious opinions, it was more than intimated not long after his arrival in New England, were " very much tainted with Antinomian and Familistical errors." This accusation came from a theological opponent, but it may be admitted that a disposition to think for themselves in matters of religion is readily discoverable in the descendants of Mr. Batchelder's daughter, Deborah Wing ; several of these soon became Quakers. Recent genealogical researches have made it clear that Deborah (Batchelder) Wing was the widow of the Rev. John Wing, third son of Matthew Wing, and grandson of Godfried Wing (Wynge), a well-kown Protestant refugee from Belgium, who after a life spent at various places in England and on the continent, became, in 1563, minister of the Dutch Church in London, where he died September 30, 1599. His grandson, John Wing, admitted B. A. at Oxford, February 16, 1603, became pastor of the church at Sandwich in England, to which his grandfather, also, had preached. Later, the Rev. John Wing served as pastor of various

  • churches in Holland, but died at St. Mary Aldermary, London, about 1630. He was married in 1610 to Deborah Batchelder, born 1592, and had at least five children ; Deborah born 1611, and married previous to her father's death, Daniel, Matthew, Stephen, born 1621, and John1 who was born 1613.
  • June 22, 1624, a license "to pass beyond seas" was granted to "Debora Wynge, 32 years old, wife of Mr. John Wynge preacher resident of Flushing." This town is in the province of Zealand, Holland.
  • Mr. Batchelder, the father of Deborah Wing, became a prominent and sharply criticised personage in the early history of the colony of New Hampshire and, after a troublous life, died in his 100th year. The date of the death of Deborah Wing has not been ascertained. After a short sojourn at Saugus (Lynn, Mass.), she, with her sons, John, Daniel, Matthew and Stephen, removed to Sandwich, Mass. In this town, probably named for the English seaport where the Wings, Godfried and John had been pastors — or in its vicinity — the first three generations of their American descendants lived and died. Their chief occupation was that of tilling the soil, and such, also, was the employment of the grandfather and father of the subject of this sketch, who thus inherited his interest in agriculture from five consecutive generations of New England farmers.
  • John1 Wing, the emigrant ancestor, married about 1646, Elizabeth ___ , and had seven or eight children. His second wife was Miriam Deane. John1 died in Harwich, Mass., in his 84th year.
  • Ananias2 Wing, born 1651, married Hannah Freeman, was a soldier under Capt. John Gorham in the "Narragansett War," and died in 1718, fifteen years before Massachusetts made a tardy grant of lands in its border settlements to the survivors of "King Philip's War," or to their legal representatives.
  • John3 Wing, born in 1702, married, 1728, Mary Knowles ; served against the French, probably in the siege of Louisburg, and died about 1773.
