https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Thacher-14


He lived for a time in Plymouth, where he served the colony in various capacities, holding, among other responsible positions, the office of constable. He was active in the military, and manifested his belligerent propensities at an early day by an encounter with one Joseph Billinton, for which he was fined "three shillings four pence." He did good service under Capt. Benjamin Church, in the King Philip war. In July, 1676, he, with others, volunteered to accompany Church from Plymouth to meet Awashonks, squaw sachem of the Seconets, at Sandwich, according to a previous agrrement with her. They did not find her at Sandwich, so they pushed on through Wareham and towards Marion. At the river between these two places "Howland began to tyre," and Church left him, with two others, for a reserve, while they advanced. They found Awashonks and her attendants at Mill Creek, southwest of Sippican Harbor, and at once returned to the reserve. Church, having "a Mind to try what Mettal" Howland was made of, sent some friendly Indians to surprise him. As soon as Howland spied them, believing from their skulking, and not seeing Church with them, that they were hostile red men, Church says, "Howland was on his guard, hearing the Guns, and by & by seeing the motion of the English and Indians, concluded his friends were distressed, was soon on the full Career on Horseback" to assist them, and idi not halt till he had signaled that all was right. In August, 1676, he went up with Church into Dartmouth, where the Indians were doing a great deal of harm, and while there "had the fortune to discover and imprison a parcel of the enemy." He is referred to at this time as one "who was now, and often the Lieutenant, and worthy good Soldier" of Church's band. He was doubtless with Church when they found and killed King Philip at Mount Ho??e, and served with him subsequently. He became pleased with the country about Narragansett Bay, and chose for his residence Bristol, R.I. Jabez was a blacksmith and cooper, and carried on a large business in Bristol. He was a lieutenant of the militia there, kept the hotel, was the first town clerk, an assessor. deputy, selectman, etc. He resided on Hope Street. The records of the First Congregational (Christ's) church, at Bristol, R. I., shows that Jabez had, 11,2,1679, a wife, four children, and two servants. This church was built in 1684, and Jabez and his wife Bethiah, who were active members of Rev. John Cotton's church at Plymouth, were foremost in this enterprise.


Jabez Howland died between 1708 and 1712 per Michael James Arrison's gedcom file data. (Frank J. Arrison 11/12/2008)


Was a member of Church's expedition in the King Philip War. FROM: The Pilgrim John Howland Society The Jabez Howland House

The Jabez Howland House is the only existing house in Plymouth where Pilgrims actually lived. The original 17th century two-story timber framed house consisted of the porch, hall and hall chamber. John Howland and his wife, Elizabeth Tilley Howland spent their winters here with their son Jabez and his family. After John's death at age 80, and the fire that destroyed their Rocky Nook farm, Elizabeth lived here until 1680 when Jabez sold the house. It was a private residence until 1912 when it was purchased for a museum.

In the 1940's extensive work was done to bring it back to its original appearance. Today the museum houses fine period furniture as well as artifacts from archeological digs at the Rocky Nook homes of John and Elizabeth and their son Joseph's farm. See 17th century fine period furniture as well as artifacts, letters and documents, letters from famous descendants Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, plus many other exciting things.

The Society also maintains the historic site of John and Joseph's farms on Howland Land in Kingston, Massachusetts.

A National Register of Historic Places site.

As the Mayflower plowed westward through high seas in the fall of 1620 on its way to the New World, John Howland was suddenly swept overboard. Fortunately he grabbed a handy topsail halyard and although he was doused several fathoms deep, was hauled aboard with the aid of a boat hook. With this story, William Bradford introduces us to John Howland, a 'lustie yonge man', who when he died in 1672 at over 80 years, was the last male Mayflower passenger living in Plymouth.

John Howland and his wife, Elizabeth Tilley, who also was a Mayflower passenger, had four sons and six daughters, one of whom was Jabez who lived in the house at 33 Sandwich Street in Plymouth now owned by the Pilgrim John Howland Society. This house was built by Jacob Mitchell about 1667, was sold to Jabez Howland who lived there with his family until he moved to Bristol, Rhode Island in 1680.

The older part of the Howland House was built about 1667 and it appears from the construction that during Jabez's ownership the height of the roof was raised to provide rooms on the second floor corresponding to those on the first. An addition was made in 1750 so that the house is now of two architectural periods. A copy of the deed at the Plymouth County Registry of Deeds, Old Colony Records, Vol. 4, Page 393, shows Jabez Howland sold the house to Elkanah Watson on January 10, 1680. In part the deed reads as follows:

   'Jabez Howland of Plymouth a 'Blacksmith' in consideration of 50 lbs. Current silver money paid by Elkanah Watson a 'Blacksmith' to him and his Heirs forever hath sold all the my house and land called by the Name of a garden spot. Be it one-half acre that I bought and purchased of Jacob Mitchell lying and being on the south side of the house and garden of Gyles Rickard senior with all other edifices, buildings and fences that have and are New Made and set upon said Garden spot and also all the my two acres of Upland that was given unto me by my father Mr. John Howland in his last will and lying and being on the west end of the aforesaid garden between the said Town Brook and the lands of said Gyles Rickard senior and exchanged unto me by aforesaid town of Plymouth lying and being between the aforesaid Town Brook and the said Gyles Rickard his land and adjoynes unto the aforesaid Uppland given me by will.'

Jabez' signature was followed by two items:

  "Elizabeth Howland senior yeieded up her free right also in the house and land above mentioned, Before mee William Bradford Assistant".
  "Bethyah Howland wife of Jabez Howland above mentioned gave her free consent to this deed the 15th of January 1680 before mee William Bradford Assistant".

Quoting from "Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth" by the Historian, William T. Davis (1887):

   "Owned by Jabez Howland before the death of his father and mother, it is fair to presume that its floors have been trodden by those two passengers of the Mayflower, and that its walls have listened to their voices. Let this ancient structure be added to the list of Pilgrim Memorials, and hereafter share with the Rock our veneration and respect."

It was occupied as a dwelling until 1912 when, though the efforts of Mrs. Nelson V. Titus, then Secretary-Treasurer, the house was bought by the Pilgrim John Howland Society.

In June 1923 the old stable twenty feet south of the house was bought, and demolished the following year, removing a fire hazard. The additional ground was landscaped, a flagpole was erected, and a driveway and parking area provided. In 1933 or 1934 the Miles House adjoining the Howland House property was purchased and removed.

Plans were formulated at the annual meeting in 1936 to restore the house to the period of its erection. Brig. Gen. Charles R. Howland was appointed Chairman of the Restoration Committee. Sidney T. Strickland, AIA of Boston and Plymouth, was engaged to draw reconstruction plans. A fund for this purpose was started in 1937 and on August 30, 1941 the restored house was rededicated, Col. Francis R. Stoddard, a Howland member, and the Gov. Gen. Of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants gave the address.

Since that time, the house has been maintained in good condition and the furnishings have been changed, as more appropriate pieces became available. These furnishings have come from purchases with funds of the Howland Society and by gifts from its members and friends. As we see it today, it is a comfortable home by 17th century standards.

The Jabez Howland House is open to the public from Memorial Day to Columbus Day. Guided tours starting at 10am to 4:30pm.

Biography - Jabez Howland -1644 ==Jabez Howland served as lieutenant under Captain Benjamin Church during King Philip's War. He was Lieutenant of Milita for Plymouth Colony.

Jabez Howland lived in the house at 33 Sandwich Street in Plymouth nowowned by The Pilgrim John Howland Society. This house built by Jacob Mitchell about 1667, and then it was sold to Jabez Howland who lived there with his family until he moved to Bristol, Rhode Island in 1680. It now is the only house left standing in Plymouth where Pilgrims actually lived. Before the defeat of King Philip at Mount Hope, Jabez Howland lived inPlymouth until 1680, he went to Bristol, Rhode Island where he openeda house of entertainment. He was a blacksmith by trade, and he workedwith copper. He carried on his large business in Bristol. On November 10, 1681, at the first town meeting for the transaction ofgeneral business, Jabez Howland was chosen as town clerk, and then hewas elected as selectman on June 6 1682, June 2, 1685 and June 3, 1690. Also, he was chosen as deputy for Bristol on June 3, 1690. "Mr. Jabez Howland does not appear to have made a very efficient town clerk, and at a meeting held May 22, 1682, Richard Smith was chosen inhis stead, "to do the office of a Town Clerk, and to enter upon record what former town orders had been made." The town had by no means lost confidence in Mr. Howland, for it immediately proceeded to elect himto the responsible office of Selectman.<ref>"The office of Selectman was, at this time, one of very great importance. The General Court hadenacted that either three or five such officers should be chosen in each town; they were empowered " to hear and determine all debts and differences arising betwixt person and person, not exceeding thirty shillings," to hear and determine differences between settlers and Indians, to give forth summons in His Majesty's name, and to determine controversies according to legal evidence, to administer oaths, and issue executions. They were required to take notice of all who should come into the government, and to require an account of all who should neglect to attend public worship from supposed profanity or slothfulness. No single persons could live by themselves or in any families but those approved by them. They could, with the constable, "repair to any house or place where they might suspect that any slothful did lurk at home orget together in companies to neglect the public worship of God, or profane the Lord's Day," and return the names of offenders at the next court for punishment. They were thus the chief executive and police officers of the towns; they were judicial officers also, and had a general oversight over manners and morals. It is not to be wondered at that men sometimes shrank from the responsibilities of the position, and that a law had to be passed fining any man who should refuse to take theoffice."</ref> His colleagues were Benjamin Church and John Rogers. Captain Church was elected to represent the infant town at the General Court, and Increase Robinson was chosen Constable."<ref>Munro, WilfredH.
