In English history Talbot is found among the earliest surnames,
but whether of Saxon or Norman origin it is not necessary in this
connection to inquire. Soon after the Norman conquest, Richard
Talbot was a baron, exercising authority in political affairs. In
1331 one of his descendants was summoned to Parliament, and ever
since, in succession, they have been peers of the realm. The seventh
Lord Talbot was created carl of Shrewsbury, and the earldom still
continues in the family. This Earl, better known as Lord John
Talbot, was killed in a battle between the English and French,
fomdit at Chatillon, France, July 20, 1453. Chark-s Talbot, oi a
kte��r generation, was Lord High Chancellor of England whde many
others of this name have occupied high and honorable places in the
civil military and ecclesiastical history of Great Britain. Under
circumstances like these, it would seem certain, that at the tune
of the early emigration to America, there were many persons by
the name of Talbot in various parts of the British Isles, ill a
is abundantly proved by the records of the early emigration to all
the colonics. Among all the families of tins name who were in New
England during the first hundred years of its settlement so far as
is known only three have descendants in the male line at tins tune.
The first of these in settlement, and also in the number of Ins de-
scendants, was Jared, who located in Taunton; the second was
Peter, who was first of the name in Dorchester, and whose de-
scendants are less numerous; the third was Ambrose, who may not
have been himself an emigrant, but the son of an emigrant. He a so
settled in Dorchester, but removed about 1740 to Maine w here h a
descendants, less in number than are the others, still reside It is
not known hat any relationship existed between these fami.es. Of
the in)" families of Talbots, who are of more recent em ..ration
notably that of the late Gov. Talbot, it does not fall with.n the
mirnosc of this work to consider.

1 Ti? ancestry of Peter Talbot, in England, has not yet been
inve tUted! but some steps are now being taken in that direction
1 id I what has been written is not intended, in the absence ot definite
knowledge, even by inference, to connect him with the early English


The article? from which the following statement is compiled was written
by Miss Caroline Whiting, of Norwood, Mass., from information that she
obtained from Joel Talbot, Esq., of Stoughton, and the Misses Anna and
Catherine Talbot, of Norwood, and printed in the New England Historical
and Genealogical Register for April, 1855.

'• Peter Talbot was horn in Lancashire, England, and while a youth, at
a hoarding school in Edinburgh, he, with two other of his fellow students,
were seized one day, while out in a boat, by a press-gang and taken on
board a man of war, bound for the American coast. When near Rhode
Island, he escaped from the vessel in the night, ami by swimming reached
the main land in safety, leaving on hoard his more timid companions, who
had tried to dissuade him from so rash an undertaking. From his place of
lauding, he travelled northerly, and after a journey of some days, arrived
in Dorchester, where he considered himself safe from pursuit. Here by
industry and frugality he secured the means to return home, never intend-
ing to settle in New England. He paid his passage and took his effects on
board, himself staying on shore dining a storm, which detained the vessel
from sailing. The weather having cleared, the vessel sailed early in the
morning, leaving him behind, hut taking his effects, and he losing his hard
earned passage money.

lie bore his misfortune with courage, and soon after married. Again,
he made preparation to return to England, this time taking a wife with
him, but strange though it may seem, from the same cause as before, the
vessel sailed without them, again depriving him of all his property. Hear-
in"' afterward that the vessel with all on board was lost, he concluded that
it was intended that he should remain in New England, and made no
further attempt to return home.

Some years after his marriage he removed to Chelmsford, Mass. Dur-
ing his residence in Chelmsford, while he and his eldest sou were absent,
the Indians came to his home, seized his wife, and carried her away
with them, first killing her infant child. The Indians were pursued by
the town's people, and Mrs. Talbot was soon rescued and returned to her
home. Uev children, Sarah and George, aud probably Elizabeth, were out
of doors together, when the Indians appeared and safely hid themselves in
a ledge cf rocks, not far away from the house.

The eldest son was killed while fighting the Indians, either at this time
or at a later period. Alter these disasters, the family returned to Dorches-
ter and made it their future home. It is supposed that be died about
1704; his widow, surviving him, lived with her son George, in that part of
Dorchester now Stoughton, probably at the original homestead. Sarah,
his daughter, married, but to whom it is not known, and Elizabeth Talbot,
who was probably another daughter, married Eleazer Puffer."

The genealogical part of the article is found, after careful investigations,
not to be absolutely correct, and has not been copied.

The only events relating to Peter Talbot, contained in the family record of
his son George, aud thus preserved, are, that he was " boru in Lancashire


old England," and that lie " died about 1704." This is from my father's
copy; but happily there are other sources of information, from which we
are able to follow him during a great part of his life, after he settled in
Dorchester. How early he arrived' in this town is 'not known, but the first
date we have is 1075, when he is found on the Dorchester tax list, lie
was in the military service before October 14, 1G77, for on that date his
military account is made up by the province treasurer, showing the amount
due him to be £18. 1(5. 08. In 1G79 he removed to Milton, where be
.remained until 1C84, if not later, lie being taxed there in a rate; made in
January of that year. December 14, 1G8G, he was one of fifty persons
who bought a large tract of land in that part of Chelmsford which has
since become the city of Lowell. Two years later he sold his undivided
interest in this land, but retained a home lot that had been set off to him.
lie remained in Chelmsford until after March 16, 109 1-2, for at that date
he was on the rolls of the west regiment of Middlesex; but soon after, re-
turned to Milton, where he was taxed in' 1G93 and 1694.

The latest date that has been found relating to him, is May 4, 1704,
when with his wife Hannah, calling themselves of Boston, they sold six
! acres of land in Chelmsford. His son George was a witness to the deed.
It is probably a hundred years since Richard Talbot made this entry in his
family record, relating to his great-grandfather, " died about 1704," and it
was his belief, that about that time he undertook to make a visit to Eng-
land, and not being heard from afterward, was supposed to have been lost
at sea, or to have died soon after his arrival there. At any rate no posi-
tive evidence has been found as to his decease.

The sale of the land in Chelmsford in the early part of 1704, a circum-
stance of which those who fix the time of his death would not be likely to
have had any knowledge, adds to the probability that the date of his
voyage to England, if he made one, is correct.

Pkter Taluot was married to his first wife, Mary Wadel, by Gov.
Dudley, in Dorchester, January 12, 1G77-8. With much time and re-
search Mary Wadkl has been completely identified, but the date of her
birth, the names of her parents, and their residence has not been found.
Mary Goole married, in Chelmsford, December 25, 1GGG, John Wadel,
whose alias was Wattel. lie died before June G, 1G7G, that being the
date when the inventory of his estate was taken. In this inventory the
appraisers returned '"one bed and furniture to it, and one cow," prized at
Dorchester, and valued at five pounds. His whole estate was valued at
£38. (J. G. It seems to be clear that at this date, his widow, for some
reason, was living in Dorchester. He left three children who lived to grow
up and many. Their names were William, Mary and Rose, and they, in
1710, made sale of their father's real estate in Chelmsford. At this date,
1710, Mary was living in Woburn, Mass., Rose in Preston, Conn., and
William in Lebanon, Conn., which at the same time was the home of
Dorothy Talbot, wife of James Cutting, daughter of Peter and Mary
(Wadel) Talbot. Mr. Cutting in his will, made in 174G, appoints William
Wattel, his friend, one of his executors. These facts, I think are con-
clusive, that the first wife of Peter Talbot was the widow of John Wadel,
and they also make doubtful the story that they made arrangements to
return to England soon after their marriage, as the number of their family
would seem to be a hindrance to such a procedure.

Mrs. Talbot died in Chelmsford, August 21), 1G87, and on the same day
Johu Fisk and Susanna, widow of George Ryani, also died. ' Three deaths


in one day, out of a population so small as was tliat of Chelmsford when
these deaths took place, must have been exceptionable; but it is not found
that they were from other than natural causes, and the Indian raid and
massacre as stated in the " tradition," has not been found to be related to
these deaths. Peter Talbot married, December 29, 1C>87, for his second
wife, II an nab Clarke, of Concord, widow of William Krizzejl, to whom she
was married November 28, 1GG7, and whose death occurred in Concord,
January 25, 1684-5. Elizabeth Frizzell, their (laughter, undoubtedly
lived with her mother, as she was admitted to the Milton Church, August
11, 17U0. No attempt lias been made to follow the history of the other
children of Frizzell. The ages of both these wives, judging by the
dates of their first marriages, would indicate that their second husband,
Peter Talbot, had been some time in this country before his marriage, or
that be was older, when he arrived, than the " tradition" would make him.
The date of his death has been previously considered, but nothing has been
found to fix that of his second wife. Children by his first wife:
i. Edward, born in Milton, March 31, 1G79; died liTcJui
ii. Dorothy, born in Milton, February 20, KiSO— 1, married

James Cutting of Watertown, born March 20, 1079-80,
son of James and Cutting. Settled at Leba-

non, Conn., where he died , 1753; she was alive in

174G, when her husband made his will.

(1) Hannah, born in Watertown, March 2, 1704; died

She married James Hills, probably of
Lebanon, Conn. They may have had other children, but
if so, none were living, or had children living, when Mr.
Cutting made his will,

v. Elizaueth, born in Chelmsford, January 13, 1086-7; married Novem-
ber 27, 1713, Eleazer Puller, born in Dedlvam, January 30, 1083, son
of Matthias and Abigail (Everett) Puller. He died January 14,
1740-7, anil she married for her second husband, August 3, 1748,
Samuel llauso, of Canton. Rauso was a Frenchman, probably a
Protestant, as he was aided by the Canton Church. He and his lirst
wife had lived some years in Canton, lie died March ,1703; she
died December 28, 1709.

Eos ton, Mass. ; died

Children by his second wife :

2. vi. George, born in Chelmsford, December 28, 1088.

Peter (Pelet1), born iii Chelmsford,' January 1, 1681-5. This record
exists, in relation to him. In 1736 James and Dorothy Cutting and


Eleazer and Elizabeth Puffer, by separate releases make thi* con-
veyance to George Talbot. " All such rights, titles, estates, and
interests and demands whatsoever as he the. said .James Cutting or
Dorothy his wife, or as he the said Eleazer Puller or Elizabeth his
wife, hid or ought to have had in or unto any rights of 'land or rights
set off by the Great and General Court of Massachusetts Hay in
New England or any grant ct land that is or may be made as a
proper right of heirship by any of the predecessors of the said
Dorothy and Klizabelh. by their brother Peter Talbot supposed to
I 7 3 L_ be defeased.." Mrs. Puffer did not acknowledge Iter release until
after the death of George Talbot, her brother, which would seeia
to indicate that at that time there was a value in these releases
to the estate of George Talbot, but so far t lie grant of land if
ever made by the Colony has not been located. These releases
are almost conclusive evidence that he (.lied in the service of the
Colony as set forth in the "tradition."

After the foregoing was in type and waiting to be corrected before

it was sent to be stereotyped, information has been found that seems

, to be reliable, by which it appears that three hundred acres of land

was granted to the heirs of Peter Talbot, near a place called Tyng

Town, Eastern Country, near Sandy River.

Daniel* (George* Peter1), born in Stoughton, March 7, 1709-10;
married Martha Stearns of Stoughton, November 1, 1734.

In 1734 his father sold him about fifty-four acres of the southerly
end of his farm, including the house in which his father resided when
he first came to Stoughton. When the third parish of Stoughton,
now the town of Stoughton, was incorporated, he gave the land upon
which to build the meeting-house, and the site has been continuously
occupied for the purpose for which it was donated iu 1744, until the
present time (1891).

During the French war, from 1755 to 1758, he made several
attempts to raise a company of soldiers for the King's service. In -
none of these efforts, during the active stage of the war, was he suc-
cessful; but after the war had closed in America, while waiting for
peace to be declared iu Europe, regiments were sent each summer to
Canada, to guard the frontier from Indian incursions. In one of
these regiments he served as Lieutenant in Capt. Richmond's com-
pany, of Col. White's regiment. His attempts at recruiting no
doubt impaired his financial condition, and soon after the close of the
war he sold his home farm, and built a house on what is now Central
Street, Stoughton, upon land which he had long owned, and where
he passed the remainder of his life. A large part of this farm by
uninterrupted possession, as well as other laud received from his
father's estate, is still owned and occupied by his descendants.

He died March 7, 1788; she died April 4, 1773.

George* (George* Peter1), born in Stoughton, October 24, 1714.
He first settled in Stoughton, buying about thirty-five acres of the
North-westerly part of his father's farm. This farm he sold to the
Rev. Jedediah Adams, the first pastor of the third precinct in
Stougton, at the time of his settlement with the parish. After this
sale lie removed to Ponkipog, Canton, where he bought a farm upon

Daniel* (Daniel* George* Peter1), born in Stoughton, October 25,
1 731). So far as is now known, lie left home quite early in life and
found employment in the towns near Boston.

At the breaking out of the revolutionary war he enlisted as a
soldier from one of these towns, and his service was of sufficient im-
portance to entitle him to receive a pension during the later years
of his life.

lie probably worked as a day laborer for others, never making for
himself a permanent home.

Of his married life, it is stated in Bond's History of Watertown
families and their descendants, "that he first married Elizabeth Teel,
by whom he had two children, both of whom died in infancy," but
beyond this statement nothing has been found in relation to this
marriage. It is, however, found that he was published in Boston to
Sarah Nichols, and that they were married April 1, 1781, by the

Benjamin4 {Daniel,9 George? Peter1), born in Stoughton, , 1753.

At the breaking out of the Revolutionary war, he was a resident of
Roxbury, enlisting in a company from that place in 1775, and serving
for many months with the army that surrounded Boston, and holding
the office of sergeant. Tradition says, that afterwards he was ap-
pointed a lieutenant, and died while in the service at Chesterfield.
It is presumed that he died unmarried. Other incidents in his life
may be found, and, if so, they will be inserted later in this work.

David4 ( George,* George* Peter1), born in Stoughton, March 8, 1745-6.
His residence was in the north part of the town, until after middle
life, when he bought a small farm in Canton, on the south side of the
Blue Hills, where he passed the remainder of his life. lie served in
the army during the Revolutionary war iu many of the compaigns,
some of which lasted a year or more.

He married, November 14, 17G'J, Mary Spear, whose parents were
then residents of Stoughton, but they soon returned to Randolph,
which was their former and later home.

The date of her death is not known.

She was born in Randolph, January 4, 1742; daughter of John
Spear, 3d, and Wary ( , ) Spear.

In a diary, still preserved, which he kept both before and after his
second marriage, he frequently mentions visiting his father Spear; but
as he does not mention any of his children by his first wife, it is to
be presumed that they all died young.

He married, April 14, 1789, for his second wife, ]\I_ehitabl£ Capen,
boru in Randolph, but soon after her birth her parents became perma-
nent residents in that part of Canton called York.

He died November 24, 1813; she died January 7, 1830.

His second wife was born May 20, 1755; daughter of Christopher
and Abigail (Thayer) Capen.

Children by first marriage:

ii. David, born August 24, 1773; died— Sitv*-- -w=|-< a ">•«*-"

iii. Elizabeth, baptized April 23, 1775; died
Children by second marriage :

iv. Salome, born February 10, 1791 ; died June 28, 1804.

All accounts make Salome an affectionate and lovable child ; kind
to her parents, respectful to her seniors, while joining heartily
with those of her own age in all their innocent amusements
and recreations. With traits like these, it is no wonder that her
tragic death was long remembered and mourned by the little
community where she had passed so many happy days, known
and loved by everyone.

Whenever she was not needed at home, she had frequently been
employed by the neighbors in work that was suitable for one
of her age. On Thursday, June 28, 1801, she went to a farm
house some half a mile from her home, to assist the family in
picking cherries for the market. After her day's work was
done, she started on her way home at about seven o'clock, taking


with her a package of the fruit for her mother. Not arriving
at home in due season did not disturb her mother, as she knew
where she was at work, and supposed that her services might
be needed for another day ; but not returning the second night
she became alarmed, ami early Saturday morning started to find
her. The path to the house where Salome was supposed to be
at work led by a small pond, which on reaching, her mother
was horror struck to Had her daughter lying dead in the shal-
low water beside the path. The crime which had been first
committed was apparent ; making the second crime of murder
necessary, to prevent the first from being at once known, and
the liend who perpetrated it promptly arrested. It was not
supposed that the crime had been done by any one living in
the immediate vicinity of its occurrence; but suspicion was at
once aroused when jack Battus, a negro, born in the West

George4 (George* Georae* Peter1), born in Norwood, February 25,
1765. The death of his father occurred when he was but seven years
old, which no doubt separated him from his father's older children, by
bis first wife, and brought him into close connection with bis half
brothers and sisters, children of bis mother by her first marriage. By
this isolation from other members of his father's family, or from some
other cause, he became lost to those compiling this genealogy until the
summer of 1891. How long he remained in Norwood is uncertain,
but we find him in Athol, in 1787, where he buys a farm of his half
brother Abner Bacon. This farm is in the north-east part of the town,
and near the South Royalston station on the Boston and Albany rail-
road. Here he made his home, and here his children were born.
From the meagre accounts which we have of him, it appears that
be was profoundly religious in word and deed, which was no doubt
shared, if not aided by his wife. His wife was cousin to the wife of
Rev. Lyman Beecher, and she was also quite nearly related to the
Goodells, one of whom was an early missionary to Constantinople. It
is related of Mr. Talbot, that during the scarcity of farm produce,


caused l»y the cold summer of 1816, he refused to sell his surplus
products except to people of his own town, who by reasou of the failure
of their crops were iu great need; waiting for his pay until better
times should come to them. Having given his chililrtn a good educa-
tion, sending two of his sous to college, — with their knowledge. he

gave his property, after the death of his wife, to the Commissioners of
Foreign Missions. His death took place while he was away from his
home, in a pasture where he had gone to fell a tree. It was prohahly
caused by over exertion in directing the fall of the tree, as he Was uot
beneath it, nor were there any bruises upon his body.

He married June 2. 1789, Elizabeth Ward.

He died January 31, 1837; she died September 5, 1840.

In the settlement of estates he was constantly employed ; many of

where be always made his home. In the settlement of his father's
estate, he took the home farm, which he continued to occupy. For
many years he taught school, getting the name of '• Master Jaba,"
which he ever alter retained, as a badge of honor, lie, too, was
prominent in town affairs, having been elected selectman in 1703, and
being the only member of the board that resided in the Stoughton
part of the town, at the time of the division. From his first election,
he continued to be re-elected 3 ear by year until 1810, when he re-
quested the town to relieve him from further service, which it did
with a vote of thanks for the acceptable manner in which he had
performed his duties for the many years he had been in office. His
health, never robust, it is probable that after this time he did not give
much attention to public duties, and his death occurred a few years

Like his brothers he was active ill town and parish affairs, succeed-
ing in 1 8 1 (J his brother Jabez as selectman, assessor and overseer of
the poor. In 1812 he was elected town clerk, in 1818 town treasurer,
and in 18'2'J a representative to the General Court, holding these
offices continuously from his first election until his death, lie had
also been town clerk for the years 1805 and InOG. With such an
endorsement, year by year, from his fellow townsmen, it cannot be
doubted that he brought to the discharge of his duties honesty,
fidelity, ami a rare capacity for the work with which he was entrusted.

For nearly fifty years one of this family had held the ollice of
selectman, and in filling the vacancy occasioned by the death of the
last incumbent it was suggested that one of his nephews would be a
proper person to take his place ; but the canvassers in appealing to
some of the old men of the town for their votes, were politely in-
formed, that ever since they became voters they had been voting for
Talbots, and they thought it about time to take a rest; and bo the
succession was broken, but only for a few years.

near Cincinnati, Ohio. From this journey he never returned, and no


tidings from or of him ever readied his family. It is notr supposed,
by his relatives, that he purposely failed to communicate with his
family, but that he died on his journey either from sickness, accident
or violence; lie having quite a sum of mouey with him when he
started from home.
