Descendants of Francis Peabody

Generation No. 1


1. FRANCIS1 PEABODY was born Abt. 1614 in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, and died February 19, 1697/98 in Topsfield, Massachusetts. He married (1) LYDIA. He married (2) MARY FOSTER WOOD, daughter of Renold (Reginald) Foster and Judith Wignol of Ipswich.


The following information came from the Peabody Genealogy, by Selim Hobart Peabody, 1909:

 “2 Aprilis 1635

“Theis under written names are to be transported to New England imbarqued in the Planter Nico: Trarice Mr bound thither the pties have brought certificates from the Minister of St Albons in Hertfordshier & Attestacon from the Justices of peace according to the Lord's order.

“Husb: man Franc's Peboddy . . . . 21”

In such documents, the age set down after a name often was a mere approximation. The papers of Essex County Court in Massachusetts contain a deposition, dated “the 24th of the 4th month 1662” (June 24, 1662) giving the “testimoni of ffrancis Pabody aged fifti years.” Another deposition, given Nov. 19, 1690, gives his age as “78 years.” While the ship list would place his birth at 1612 or 1614, the depositions would set it at 1612.

The Planter sailed from London about Apr. 10, 1635, and arrived in Boston, Mass., June 7, 1635. Francis Peabody, a farmer and miller, settled first at Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, where he was living in 1636 near “Labour in Vaine” on a road that led to the beach. The first reference to Francis in the Ipswich records appears in a description of lands owned by Samuel Hall:

“Eight acres of planting ground, by an act of the Towne as in the old book Anno 1636, lying near the highway going to Labour in vaine meadowe, butting to ye East upon ye planting ground of John Seaborn and on ye North planting ground of Francis Pebody.”

In 1638 or 1639, the settler joined with the Rev. Stephen Bachilor and 12 others in the original settlement of Hampton, New Hampshire. He became a freeman of Hampton May 18, 1642. In 1645, he held a share in the common lands of Hampton and was also acting as a member of the committee that oversaw the finishing of the meeting house.

The Francis Peabody residence in Hampton was near those of Isaac Perkins and William Cole. Cole's wife, Eunice, apparently had difficulty controlling her tongue and sometimes lashed out at her neighbors. An entry in the records of the Ipswich Court, under date of Nov. 4, 1645, says “Eunice Cole is to sit in the stocks at Hampton and to make acknowledgement of her slanderous speeches concerning Susan Parkings & lidia pebodye and to pay to the witnes Isaac Perkings 7d and the feas of the court.” This Mrs. Cole subsequently was tried for witchcraft.

After spending about 12 years in Hampton, Francis Peabody on March 25, 1650, sold his Hampton property to Robert Drake and moved to Topsfield, Mass., which had two years earlier been set off from his former home of Ipswich. Here he spent the rest of his life. On moving to Topsfield, he bought 250 acres of land from Samuel Symonds. On Apr. 20, 1666, he purchased from his near neighbor, William Evans, an acre located beside Pye Brook, on which he established in 1672 the first grist mill in the town. His house, situated on the bank of the brook, survived until 1846. He built a second, two story house a little farther up the brook in 1692, and this stood until Oct. 4, 1914. A deposition made by Francis Peabody in 1690, when he was 78, provides some interesting detail:

“The testimony of francis Pabody aged 78 years is that I having bought on half of mr Simmonds farm: ye said ffeild mr Simmonds sent up goodman gage & goodman Brag to shew me the bounds of that farme, and they did shew me a stak in a medow which medow is now on the back sid of the dweling house of Isaac Cumins senr & on the north sid of the brook several rods: to be the bounds on the north east corner of the farm: & from thence to a tree on the end of pains hill near to a medow where Ipswich commity setled the bounds; afterward I got ensign howlet to help me run the line on the south est side of the farme between goodman every & me & he with others brought the line to the same place on the south est corner: to which place my fence did then & now doth point.

“Swore november 19th 1690 before me Samll Appleton Asst.”

Little is known of Francis Peabody's first wife. She is clearly identified as Lydia in documents of the period, but her maiden name, ancestry and origin are unknown. She died before 1649 and he married about 1650 Mary (Foster) Wood, daughter of Renold and Judith (Wignol) Foster of Ipswich and the widow of Daniel Wood of Ipswich, who died in 1648. Francis Peabody died Feb. 19, 1697/8, in Topsfield. Mary survived about seven years, dying Apr. 9, 1705, in Topsfield. Francis' will, dated Jan. 20, 1695/6 . . ."
