  • Note 2. The Metcalfs: For an account of the origin of this name see Jameson's Medway, 502. Rev. Leonard Metcalfe was born in 1545 and was rector of Tatterford. Norfolk, Eng. (Jameston's Medway, 502) His son Michael was born in Tatterford, 1586, and was a donrix weaver in Norwich, of which city he was made freeman June 21, 1618. His wife Sarah was born June 17, 1598, and was married October 13, 1616. Their seven eldest children were born in St. Benedict's, Norwich, and four later at St. Edmondsbury. He was a man of much prominence in Norwich and was the object of the persecutions of Bishop Wren and his chancelor Corbet. See the statement of his reasons for emigrating made by Michael Metcalf in a letter "to all the true professors of Christ's Gospel within the city of Norwich,: written from Plymouth, Eng., on the eve of his departure for America, Register, XVI, 279. He sailed in April, 1637, with his wife, eight children and his servant Thomas Comberbach (Hotten's Original Lists, 289.) He was admitted a townsman of Dedham, July 14, 1637. His wife died November 30, 1644; he died December 24, 1664. (Hill's Dedham Records, 1, 127, 9.) Three of his children are of present interest:
    • 1. MICHAEL METCALF (August 29, 1620-December 24 1654), of Dedham, married April 2, 1644, Mary Fairbanks(36, Note), of Dedham. Their daughter Mary, born August 15, 1646, married, December 10, 1668, John Ware (153, Note 1), of Dedham. Another daughter Sarah, born December 7, 1648, married June 4, 1677, Robert Ware (153, Note 1), of Wrentham. The youngest child of Michael and Mary Metcalf was Eleazar, born March 20, 1653, deacon of the Wrentham church. He married, April 9, 1684, Milletiah Fisher. The oldest surviving son of Deacon Eleazar was Michael, born May 21, 1687, elder of the Wrentham church. He married Abiel Colburn, of Dedham, and had twelve children. The seventh child was Col. James Metcalf, born 1728, died 1803, deacon of Dr. Emmons' church in Wrentham. He married, January 3, 1754, Abial Haven (Note 3) and had a daughter Jerusha, who married Nathan5 Wight above. Abiel, the eleventh child of Michael and Abiel Metcalf, married Michael5 Ware (58). Eleazar and Milletiah Metcalf had a younger son Eleazar, born November 21, 1710, who married Margaret5 Ware (58).
    • 2. JOHN METCALF (September 5, 1622-November 27, 1675, of Dedham, married March 22, 1647, Mary Chickering and had a son, Eleazar Metcalf, father of Michael, father of Peletiah, father of Benjamin Metclaf, who married Eunice6 Ware (59). (Register, XLI, 48.)
    • 3. Deacon THOMAS METCALF (December 27, 1629-November 16, 1702), of Dedham, married, September 12, 1656 Sarah Paige. Their son Thomas Metcalf, born May 7, 1671, married Sarah Avery (46).

  • CAPT. JOHN METCALF was descended from Rev. Leonard Metcalf of Norwich, Norfolk county in England, who for many years, prior to 1616, was Rector of Norwich Cathedral. Michael his son, through whom the line of descent is traced, was educated in the doctrines of the established church of which he became an active and energetic member. In this connection he remained until 1635, when he became a dissenter in consequence of the arbitrary decrees of Bishop Wren and his Dean, Dr. Corbett. He was forthwith accused of heresy, but after escaping conviction by reason of the death of two of his persecutors who were witnesses against him, he gives the following narration of his experience. "I was forced" he says "to fly for the sake of the liberty of my conscience from my country, my wife and all my children and

  • friends, in which I essayed to go to New England ; taking ship for the voyage at London, Sept. 17th, 1636 ; being by tempests tossed up and down the seas until the Christmas following; then veering about came to Plymouth in Old England, in which time I experienced many dangers, troubles and sore afflictions ; then leaving ship I went to Yarmouth in Norfolk County where I took ship to come to New England with my wife and family. We sailed Apr. 15th, 1637 and arrived in Boston, New England three days before mid-summer, (June 17th,) with my wife, nine children and a servant."
  • Michael Metcalf of whom the above account has been given, was born in Norwich, Norfolk County England, in 1585 and died in Dedham, Mass., 1664. His wife Sarah (other name unknown) to whom he was married, Oct. 16th, 1616, was born June 17th, 1593, and died Nov. 30th, 1644.
  • Michael and Sarah Metcalf had eleven children, nine b. in Norwich in England and two in Dedham after arriving in this country. Michael, jr., the 3d child, b. Aug. 20th, 1620; m. Jan. 14th, 1644, Mary Fairbanks and died in Dedham, March 27th, 1654. His wife who was the daughter of John Fairbanks of Stafford in England, died in Dedham, Feb. 12th, 1673. By this marriage there were five children through the youngest of whom, Eleazer, the line of decent is traced. Eleazer was born March 26th, 1652, and married Meletiah Fisher Apr. 9th, 1684, who was born. May 1st, 1667. He died Aug. 11th, 1742 ; she died Aug. 20th, 1742. They had ten children.

  • Our emigrant ancestor, Michael Metcalf, the Dornix, or Embroidery Weaver, of Norwich, and the Metcalfs of Norwich, Tatterford and vicinity in co. Norfolk, were immediately descended from the Metcalfs of Beare Park and Nappa Hall in North Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Metcalfs, as far as known, were zealous Catholics; the Norfolk family were zealous Protestants, and Michael, at least, a staunch Puritan. When Leonard Metcalf was attainted for high treason, and lost his large estates in Yorkshire (which, it is hinted, may have been one reason for his condemnation, his lands being wanted for some new court favorite) his family left Yorkshire and settled in Norfolk. Religion was then largely a matter of politics. It is supposed that Leonard Metcalf himself, perhaps as a condition of his pardon, gave up his Catholicism, and after the loss of his property, eventually took up holy orders under the state church, and, twenty years after, was the first Leonard Metcalf, Rector of the parish of Tatterford near Norwich. But it is perhaps more probable that this first Rector Metcalf of Tatterford was a son of Leonard Metcalf, the quondam traitor.
  • The earliest records extant of the parish of Tatterford are copies in the registry of the archdeaconry of Norfolk, and commence about 1560. In 1580, et sequens, Leonard Metcalf was Rector of the Parish of Tatterford. Leonard Metcalf was succeeded by Richard Metcalf. In these records the name is spelled Metcalf, Metcalfe, Mettcalf and Mettcalfe. In 1585 is the entry of baptism of "Leonard Metcalf, filius Leonardi Metcalf et bapt. fuit 3d die Septembris." Adain "Michael Metcalf filius Leonardi Metcalf et bapt. fuit 17th die June 1587." Which confirms our records that Michael Metcalf, the Dornix Weaver, was born at Tatterford, Norfolk co., June 17, 1587. There is no clue to the name of Leonard Metcalf's wife, the mother of Michael.
  • Michael Metcalf's wife, Sarah Ellwyn, was born, our old records in this country say, "June 17, 1593, in the adjoining town of Waynham. The adjoining town is Rayn-

  • ham, with parishes East, West and South Raynham. And there has been quite a controversy over the name. The registers of all have been searched for the record of Sarah Ellwyn' s birth and marriage. But further investigation has shown that Sarah Ellwyn was born at "Heigham," the daughter of Thomas and Elisabeth Ellwyn. Thomas Ellwyn was born in 1564 and died in 1648. Sarah Ellwyn was born in Heigham June 17, 1595 and was married to Michael Metcalf Oct. 15, 1616.
