About William Sawyer, of Newbury

Quoted from Some descendants of William Sawyer of Newbury by William Sumner Appleton 1891

William Sawyer was born about 1613, as he called himself 65 when he took the oath of allegiance in 1678. I know of no evidence to connect him with other settlers in New England of the name of Sawyer. He does not appear in any position of prominence or importance, except as one of the founders of the Baptist Church at Newbury in 1682.

He had a wife ,Ruth, and died in 1702 or 1703, administration on his estate being granted 1 March, 1703 ; no settlement was made, and he seems to have left no property. He probably lived in or near what is now West Newbury, where some of his descendants may still be found.

From "A Genealogy of some of the descendants of William Sawyer of Newbury, Mass., embracing Ten Generations & One Hundred & Seven Families".

William Sawyer came from England, and, according to the best tradition, from some part of Lincolnshire. He is first found in Salem, Mass., in 1640; afterwards in Wenham, Mass., in 1643, and the next year in Newbury, Mass., where he settled, raised his family , and died. He married Ruth __, whom he undoubtedly brought from his fatherland, and had 13 children, all born in Newbury.

Two of his children [listed below] where gravesites have not been found are; Bitfield Sawyer, 1647–1744 and Frances Sawyer, 1670–1744 She married Thomas Treadwell, 1665–1743, in 1693.


Biography

William was in Salem in 1640 and was a proprietor there in 1642. He lived in that part of Salem that became Wenham and in 1644 he moved to Newbury and lived near the Meeting House next to the Merrimac River in the part of town called the West Parish.

On 14 May 1654 he signed a petition to the General Court on behalf of "our loving friend, Lieutenant Robert Pike, of Salisbury":

"The humble petition of the inhabitant of Newbury, to the honored General Court now assembled at Boston showeth:

That whereas our loving friend, Lieutenant Robert Pike, of Salisbury, hath by occasion, as it is witnessed against him, let fall some words for which the honored Court hath been pleased [to censure him] we having had experience that he hath been a peaceable man and a useful instrument... do therefore humbly desire this honored Court that the said sentence may be [revoked] and that the said Lieutenant Pike be... restored to his former liberty... Saml Moody... John Bartlett... Richard Bartlett... Sam Poor... Wm Sawyer... Anthony Morse... Tristram Coffin... Nich. Batt..." [1]

Petitions were also received from Hampton, Salisbury, Haverhill and Andover on Lt. Pike's behalf. His sentence was not revoked until Oct. 1657.

On 21 May 1663 he joined in the petition to the General Court against a fine imposed on Dr. Henry Greenland of Newbury who had practiced as a physician without a "License under the hand of a magistrate". Dr. Greenland's major error was not that he was practicing without a license, but, that he was a Quaker. He was elected fence viewer on 7 Mar. 1663: "In the middle of the Towne Anthony Mors, Senr, Tristram Coffin, John Webster; at the farther end William Pilsbury, Will : Sawyer, Lionell Worth" also on 2 Apr. 1666 "William Sawyer... for the further end of the new town to the frog pond" and on 3 Apr. 1671 "William Sawyer... from John Bartletts barne to the farther end of the new Towne", 19 Mary 1672/3.[2] On 5 Mar. 1676/7 he was chosen the Surveyor of Highways.

In 1671 William and others in Amesbury, petitioned the Court to be allowed to train “under the Conduct of or loving friend & neighbor John Hoyt senr, our Chosen and established Sergeant & Chiefe military officer here” instead of going to Salisbury for militia training. From this I suspect he must have lived in Amesbury for a while. [3]

"Wm Sayer" age 65, took the oath of allegiance to King Charles II in 1678. The General Court ordered 2 Oct. 1678 that as it hath pleased his Majesty, by letter dated 27 Apr. 1678 to notify the authorities of the colony of Massachusetts Bay "to give forth orders that the oath of Allegiance as it is by law established wthin the Kingdome of England, be ministered and taken by all his subjects within this colony who are of years to take an oath". Anyone refusing to take the oath was liable to a fine or imprisonment.[4]

On 24 Mar. 1679/0 he was elected Tithing Man and again on 22 Mar. 1685/6. In 1677 the General Court ordered that one tithing man should be appointed for every ten families to apprehend all Sabbath breakers: "those who absent themselve from the public worhip of God on the Lord's day", disorderly children and servants, night walkers, and tipplers, and, in the absence of a constable, take them before a magistrate or commit them to prison. The tithing men were required to carry a black staff, two feet long, tipped at one end with brass about three inches wide, as a badge of authority. They were sworn to the faithful discharge of their duties before a Justice of the Peace. Tithing men were elected in Newbury up until 1854.[5] In 1681 he, his wife, and their daughter Ruth and her husband joint the Baptist church in Boston and the following year he was one of the founders of the Baptist church in Newbury which soon closed.

In the assessor's list of Aug. 1688 William had "2 houses, 12 acres of plow land, 12 acres of meadow, 1 horse, 4 oxen, 4 cows, 2 two yr olds, 2 one yr olds, 9 sheep & 3 hogs."[6]

"I William Sawyer Senr of Newbury... in Consideration of ye Intire afection which I beare To my Loving & Dutiful Son Stephen Sawyer… Confirme unto him by Said Son all that my Tract of land where I now Dwell lying in ye Towneship of Newbury Containing about nineteen Acres be it more or less bounded by ye Countrey Road Easterly by ye Land of job Pilsbury Southerly by ye Land of John Atkinson & Mose Pilsbury westerly and by ye land comonly known by ye name of Sawyers lane Northerly... together with my now dwelling house & Out houses & barnes Orchards and Gardens thereupon... also five acres of Salt Marsh... & 2 1/2 acres more of salt Marsh by Capt. Thomas Noyes" also about 1 1/2 acres of the tract of ten acres "at Jericho Marshes, also my free hold free Comonage or Common rightr in ye Township of Newbury, also my Rate Lott in ye upper woods... meaning in this my Gift & Grant that my Said Son Stephen Sawyer Shall not come unto the Actual possession of any of ye above Demissed premises or any part thereof until Imediately after my Death & ye Death of my Dear & Loving Wife Ruth but doe Reserve the use of all ye… premises… to my own use & ye use of My now Wife During Our Natural lives & I doe further Reserve liberty to my Selfe to make Sale of Any of ye abovesd Lands if I Should be reduced to absolute necessity thereunto by some Extraordinary providence & not Elce. Provided that my son Stephen Sawyer… doe faithfully & truly pay to my Four Daughters Twenty pounds in good payment within five years after my Death and ye Death of my Wife That is- To my Daughter Ruth Wife of Benjamin Morse five poundes To my Daughter Sarah wife of Joshua Browne five pounds To my Daughter Mary wife of John Emery Junr five pounds & To Frances my Daughter Wife to Thomas Treadwell five pounds… if I should dye & Leave my Wife a widdow & She Should Marry againe that then immediately my Sd Son… Shall come to ye Actual possession… of all ye… premises.” 19 May 1693 William Sawyer & wife Ruth Sawyer Henry Shortt Abigaill X Rolfe her marke Abigail Bartlett"[7]

Sawyer's Lane mentioned in the deed extended along the northern boundary of his land and the Sawyer's Hill burying ground has many graves of the early Sawyers and Poores and other families from the West Parish. The burying ground was about an acre of land enclosed by a stone wall and was set off when the west parish church was built in 1689.

As William deeded away his property before his death, he left no will. Administration was granted to his son-in-law, John Emery on 1 Mar. 1702/3. [8]

Name originally spelled Sayer. Was changed to Sawyer sometime after coming to: Wenham MA in 1643. From Wenham he moved to Newbury MA

Perusing the internet and other sources I've seen all sorts of information stating that William was one of three brothers who came to New England, however, I have not seen any proof that these folks were connected. I've also read all sorts of statements that the brothers were the children of John of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, however, I haven't seen any data to back this up either. All we know is that three men named Sawyer came to Massachusetts and settled in three different towns. Now if we could only find the baptismal records for these three immigrants...

On 14 May 1654 he signed a petition to the General Court on behalf of "our loving friend, Lieutenant Robert Pike, of Salisbury":

"The humble petition of the inhabitant of Newbury, to the honored General Court now assembled at Boston showeth:

Petitions were also received from Hampton, Salisbury, Haverhill and Andover on Lt. Pike's behalf. His sentence was not revoked until Oct. 1657.

On 21 May 1663 he joined in the petition to the General Court against a fine imposed on Dr. Henry Greenland of Newbury who had practiced as a physician without a "License under the hand of a magistrate". Dr. Greenland's major error was not that he was practicing without a license, but, that he was a Quaker.

On 5 Mar. 1676/7 he was chosen the Surveyor of Highways.

In 1671 William and others in Amesbury, petitioned the Court to be allowed to train “under the Conduct of or loving friend & neighbor John Hoyt senr, our Chosen and established Sergeant & Chiefe military officer here” instead of going to Salisbury for militia training. From this I suspect he must have lived in Amesbury for a while.
