Nathaniel, his son, was born in 1639. He married Mary Wardell the daughter of William and Alice Wardell. He moved to Ipswich and stayed there until his death in 1713. His trade was that of making gloves, thus the nickname "Nathaniel the Glover". One of the jobs Nathaniel did was to supply gloves for the College being built at Cambridge in 1679. Nathanial received his pay in goods as shown by the following record; "1680 Feb 7 Simon Stace and Nathaniel Rust brought in an account of nineteen pounds, fifteen shillings in corn and malt, put aboard John Dutch his sloop and brought a receipt under the hand of Mr. John Woodmancie, who was to receive it by order of Mr. William Manning of Cambridge, of seventy-eight bushels and three pecks of malt, and this was in April the 20 1680". Another job he had was supplying gloves for the funeral of Mr. Cobbets; "That Mr. Rust provide if he can against the funerall, Gloves sutable for men and women to the value of five or six pounds, not money pay, and some spice and ginger for the syder". Nathaniel took the Freeman's oath on May 27, 1674.

He and his wife had 8 children; Mary Bartlett (1664-), Nathaniel (1667-), Margaret Williams (1669-), Elizabeth Fellows (1672-), Mercy Norton, Dorothy (1682-1684), John (1684-) and Sarah Hart (1686-). Nathaniel died intestate and Capt. David Ringe and Thomas Norton were appointed administrators of his estate on Dec. 23, 1713. The estate was valued at 100 pounds 17s 2d.


3 Nathaniel3 (Henry1) baptized in Hingham, 2 Feb., 1639-40; married Mary, daughter of William and Alice Wardell, born in 1642, died 7 July, 1720, aged seventy-eight years. He removed to Ipswich in early life, where he remained until his death, 23 Dec., 1713. He was in Ipswich as early as 1661 and engaged in the manufacture of gloves by which vocation he earned the title of "Nathaniel the Glover" .

By a bond of Capt. Rindge and Deacon Norton, on file with their administrators' bond, but not recorded and now hardly legible, it appears that he had conveyed his real estate to them for the "support and comfortable maintainance of himself and his wife in their old age and under infirmaties etc." The date of the acknowledgment of their bond was 9 May, 1710-11. The account of administration was presented 11 May, 1719,

when the inventory had increased to œ175 18?? 8d. accompanying this is an account drawn off by Capt. Rindge from his books, (not recorded). Jan. 6, 1713-14. The account begins with the last adjustment, 26 July, 1701. and the last entry is as follows: "9 Dec. (1711) to ??ndries for funeral charge. As gloves, mourning cloth for the wido wine, sugar, Digin ye grave pai in the Doctor & paing ye nurs all 8œ 02s 06d." His wife died 1720. "she age 78 years."

"March 23 1692-3 Mr. Nathaniel Rust was appointed one of the selectmen to lay out more town", and we find that William Wilson sold his lot "with ye rocks thereon" to Mr. Nathaniel Rust, Sen.(*)

Nathaniel the "Glover" took the freeman's oath 27 May, 1674, and was appointed quartermaster in the expedition to Canads, 19 June, 1690, and was representative to the legislature in 1690 and 1691. Mr. Nathaniel Rust, Sen., of Ipswich, "Glover," died intestate and his sons-in-law, Capt. Daniel Ringe and Mr. Thomas Norton, were appointed administrators of his estate, 23 Dec., 1713. Amount, œ100 17s 2d, all personal estate.(+) Account of Daniel Rindge and Thomas Norton, the administrators, presented 11 May, 1719. Nothing left after œ10 was allowed to the widow.
