  • Little can be learned of the earlier years of Matthew Pratt in Weymouth, though the settlement there, called Wessaguscus, was second to that of Plymouth. It was the scene of the failure of Weston's Colony, upon the site now locally known as "Old Spain," in 1622, and of the more permanent settlement by Captain Robert Gorges, son to Sir Ferdinando Gorges, in 1623. .... etc.

  • The wife of Matthew1 Pratt was Elizabeth Bate or Bates. She is said to have been daughter to an older brother of Elder Edward1 Bates, of Weymouth, whom Matthew names in his will as "kinsman," but there is no evidence that the older men of the name in the town or state were related to Edward. It is more probable that Elizabeth was sister to Edward Bates. She was generously provided for by the will of her husband, of which she was made sole executrix. Very little of the property was to go to the children until after her death, which occurred in 1676.

  • On March 11, 1673-74, "Joseph Pratt Wejm" was made freeman of Massachusetts Bay Colony.* That he was of "Wejm [Weymouth]" was recorded to distinguish him from another Joseph Pratt, who was made freeman the previous year.
  • Joseph2 Pratt was the youngest son, and lived with his parents until about the time of his marriage. In the town records, where his birth, marriage, and death appear, he is shown to have been prominent not only in town affairs, but in the church. In 1666 and 1673, he was a fence-viewer ; in 1667, he cut five hundred shingles for his house. He was appointed, in 1681, to cut five cords of wood a year for the pastor; in 1682, was on a committee to rebuild the meeting-house. In 1685, he was a "way-warden; " 1686, a surveyor ; 1693, named a "freeholder;" 1706, surveyor of highways; 1709, chosen to lay off land adjoining his own. In 1710, eighty-seven rods of land were laid out for Joseph Pratt, senior, bounded by land owned by himself and Samuel Whitmarsh, who had married his niece. His occupation was that of a "husbandman."
  • The death of Joseph Pratt occurred Dec. 24, 1720, in Weymouth, at the age of eighty-one years ; his will, dated March 5, 1718-19, was presented for probate, at Boston, on Feb. 10, 1720-21,† by his son Samuel, executor. To his aged wife, Sarah, he bequeathed all the "moveables and Household goods and a good convenient maintenance so that she may live comfortably upon the Income of my Estate to be brought in unto her by my Executor." To his son Joseph he left ten shillings beside what he already had given

  • him ; to his "Son John Pratt, Ten Shillings if he should ever come hither again;" to his son William, five shillings "besides what he hath had of my Estate already." He gave ten shillings to Aaron Pratt, his son-in-law, to be equally divided between the children of "his late wife Sarah Pratt ;" to his daughter, Experience Battle, £8, "beside what she has had;" and to his daughter, Hannah Hines (?), £5, "beside what she has had." His son Samuel was appointed the "only & sole executor," with the gift of all the "Housing Lands Messuages and Tenements in Weymouth and all my Meadow Land." This will was signed with the mark of Joseph Pratt, probably from illness, as he mentioned himself, at that time, "through . . . Old Age weak in Body ;" it was witnessed by Edward Bate, John Reed, and Joshua Torrey.

July 22, 1706; her husband mar., second, Sept. 4, 1707, Sarah (Cummings) Wright, a widow, who d. Dec. 25, 1752, Aaron Pratt d. in 1735, aged eighty-one years. As the dates of births of the children are not known, they cannot be arranged in proper order, neither can the children be separated as belonging to the first or second wife.

    • 2. Joseph3, b. Feb. 2, 1665, in Weymouth; mar., first, Sarah Benson, of Hull, by whom he had twenty children. He lived to a great age, and his will, dated March 13, 1755, when he was ninety years of age, mentions but seven of them.
    • In 1704, he sold a mill at Abington, and soon after removed to Bridgewater. As Joseph Pratt, Jr., he was a fence-viewer, surveyor of highways, etc., in Weymouth. In Bridgewater he served on the grand jury, Feb. 17, 1720, and

    • The wife of his old age, whom he mar. Dec. 14, 1721, in Bridgewater, was Ann Richards; she d. March 21, 1766, aged ninety-two years. "The Boston News-Letter" of January 31, 1765, gives the following account of his death: "On the fourteenth of this month died at Bridgewater Joseph Pratt, aged 100 years. A man of good character and religious profession. He had twenty children by his first wife, but none by his second, who still survives him, about 90 years of age."
