About William Wallace


William was a constable 1694, 1695, and 1697. He was an assessor in 1695 a nd 1696. Thompson, Alice Smith, "The Drake Family of New Hampshire," (NHH S, 1962), p. 32.

William Wallace married at Little Harbor, New Hampshire on 15 December 1673 Jane Drake, born about 1653, died before February 1723, daughter of Nathaniel and Jane (---) Drake. He deeded his estate Feb. 11, 1722-3 at New Castle, New Hampshire (New Hampshire Deeds, vol xiii, page 129) to his son Samuel for support in old age, mentioning no wife and no other children except two daughters, Jane, wife of Stephen Lang, and Sarah, wife of Joshua Foss. They were to have 20 pounds each if they survived him and demanded it. There was probably another son, William (3) who lived in the adjoining town of Greenland. Very likely proof of the relationship might be obtained from a thorough study of deeds and other available records. New Hampshire Deed, vol xxii., page 447, have a deed Aug. 4, 1715, of land in Greenland, from Joseph Weeks to William Wallace, Jr., both of Greenland. No other Wallaces appear among the proprietors of Epsom, which was granted May 18, 1727, to the rate-payers of 1723 in Rye, Greenland and New Castle, nor among the proprietors of Barrington, which was granted in the same way to the Portsmouth rate-payers of 1719-22. USA

Based on these data I posit these are his children:

Sarah Wallis 1673 – 1723 m Joshua Foss Sr c 1665 – 1761 (d aged 98)

Samuel Wallis Wallace 1674 – 1741 m Hannah Seavey1674 – 1741

Jane Wallis 1680 – 1723 m Stephen Lang 1680 –

William B Wallace1693 – 1772 m Martha
