  • The immigrant ancestor of the Hatch family of Buffalo, New York, herein recorded, was a son of Sir Walter Hatch, of England.
  • (I) William Hatch, the first of his name in America, and one of the earliest settlers of Scituate, Massachusetts, was born in Sandwich, Kent county, England, from which place he emigrated to America before 1633. In the course of a year or two he went back to England for his family, and returned in March, 1635, in the ship "Hercules," with his wife Jane, five children and six servants. He settled in Scituate in Kent street in 1634, prior to his return to England, and on arriving the second time, with his family, resumed his residence there. He kept a store and was rated a merchant of ability. He was a very active and useful man in town and church, being lieutenant of militia and the first ruling elder of the Second Church of Scituate, which was founded in 1644. He died November 6, 1651. Thomas Hatch, supposed to have been an elder brother of William, lived first in Dorchester, but moved to Scituate, where he died in 1646. leaving five children: Jonathan, William, Thomas, Alice and Hannah. Children of William and Jane Hatch, all born in England : Jane, married John Lovell ; Annie, married, 1648, Lieutenant James Torrey ; Walter, of further mention : Hannah, married, 1648, Samuel Utley ; William, died in Virginia, about 1646, married Abigail Hewes, and had Phoebe; Jeremiah, died in 1713, married, in 1657, Mary Hewes, and had fourteen children.
  • (II) Walter, eldest son of Elder William and Jane Hatch, was born in England, in 1623: died in Scituate, Massachusetts, March, 1701. He is on the list of those capable of bearing arms in 1643. He settled on a point of land in Scituate, southeast of the Second Society's meeting house, and spent his life in farming. He married (first) May 6, 1650, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Jane Holbrook, of Weymouth, who was mother of all his children. He married (second) Mary —— , of Marshfield, August 5, 1674.

  • 10. THOMAS HATCH (William, Thomas, John the Younger, Thomas, Thomas, John), of Wye, co. Kent, and Scituate, Mass., born, probably about 1596, died in New England before 14 June 1646, when his widow brought her daughter Hannah to be baptized.* He married, probably about 1622 LYDIA —— . He lived for a while at Wye, where in 1626 and 1628 two of his children were baptized. .... The date of his emigration to New England is not known; but he may have come with his brother William, on his second trip to New England, in the Castle, in 1638. He settled at Scituate, and was proposed as a freeman 5 Mar. 1638/9.
  • His widow, Lydia, married secondly, abot 1654, John Spring of Watertown, Mass., but continued to live in Scituate. About her the Plymouth Colony Records, uner date of 6 Oct. 1659, have the following: "Conserning a certaine woman, viz", the wife of John Spring, of Watertowne, which was somtimes the wife of Thomas Hatch, of Scittuate, which said woman hath lived about three or foure yeares att Sicttuate from her husband, the Court have ordered, that shee either repaire to her husband with all convenient speed, or to repaire to Duxburrow to the house of Mr Alden, on the twentyeth of this p'sent month of Octobert, to give a reason why shee doth not; and incase shee shall refuse to attend this order, the Court will take a speedy course to send her to her said husband."† Evidently she satisfied the authorities as to her reasons for living apart from her husband, for in 1665 she was still living in Scituate, when, as Lydia Spring, she took oath to the statements which her son-in-law, Jonas Pickles, made to her as to his wishes regarding the disposition of his property after his death.

    • * Much confusion has arisen and numerous errors have appeared in various printed works regarding two settlers in Plymough Colony named Thomas Hatch. Besides Thomas Hatch of Scituate, there was a Thomas Hatach, an early propietor of Dorchester, Mass., who was propounded as a freeman 14 May 1634. (Massachusetts Bay Records, vol. 1, p. 369.) He removed to Barnstable, where he was propounded as a freeman 1 June 1641. At Barnstable, in Aug. 1643, he was on the list of those able to bear arms, that is, he was between 16 and 60 years of age. He had land in both Yarmouth and Barnstable, and took the oath of fidelity in Yarmouth in 1657. he died about 1660, and on 7 May 1661 his widow Grace presented his inventory. On 3 Mar. 1662/3 administration on his estate was granted Jonathan Hatch and to Lydia, wife of Henry Taylor, who were without doubt his children. (Plymouth Colony Records, Court Orders, vol. 4, p. 31.) This Thomas Hatch of Dorchester, Yarmouth, and Barnstable did not belong to the Hatch family of Scituate, which came from co. Kent.
    • vi. HANNAH, bapt. at Scituate 14 June 1646, being presented by her mother, "widow Hatch," and being then evidently a child several years old and not an infant; m. at Scituate, 6 Dec. 1658, SAMUEL UTLEY. Child: 1. Lydia, b. at Scituate 28 Dec. 1659.
    • * Copies of these deeds are in the possession of Israel H. Hatch of Marshfield, Mass.
    • † See deposition attached to the will, in the Plymouth Probate Records.
    • ‡ Savage's Genealogical Dict., vol. 3, p. 488, states that Daniel Prior or Pryor had a wife Mary; and in the records of the Second Church of Scituate, under date of 6 July 1656, is found the baptism of "Daniel grandchild to our sister Spring, and sonne to Daniel Pryor."
