3753 William Tucker: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice

Austin American-Statesman (TX) - Saturday, January 30, 2010
Deceased Name: William Tucker

William Gibbs Tucker of Georgetown, Texas, has been called home by our heavenly father on January 27, 2010, at the age of 80. He was born in Moultrie, Georgia on June 12, 1929.

Anyone who ever met him appreciated his eloquence and humor. For those whose lives he touched, they knew him as a man of faith and family. His strong ethical values he taught by example.

He graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in Civil Engineering after which, he served in the Army's Corp of Engineers. He had the privilege of serving our country in France during the post war reconstruction. Through this he found a love for traveling in Europe, which he added to his interests in reading, music and nature. As a family we have many special memories and will continue to cherish the stories he told of his life's adventures.

For 32 years he worked for J.A. Jones Construction Company from which he retired in 1993 as Vice President/Construction Manager. His work allowed us as a family to live in many places from California to Virginia. He never lost his fascination and appreciation for commercial construction and architecture.

During his retirement he became active in church through Bible study and serving as a Stephens Minister. Traveling continued to be a priority and pleasure. He was also involved with The Military Order of the World Wars.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Gudrun Tucker; son, Karsten Tucker and wife Bel; daughter, Brenna Metz and husband Alex; daughter, Rebecca Glace and husband Chuck; and nine grandchildren.

Visitation will be on Sunday, January 31 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at Ramsey Funeral Home in Georgetown. Funeral Service will be held on Monday, February 1 at 10:00 a.m. at Faith Lutheran Church in Georgetown. A private interment will follow at Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.

Watkins, William (I8450)
 
3756 William Weeks
Of England and New England
This line of Weeks came from England to New England. It appears that William Weeks was the progenitor of this family. He came from Staines, Middlesex, England and died about 1688 or 89 in New England.

This William is believed to be the son of Richard Wickes (Weeks) who names his son, William in his will and being in New England. It is thought William came to this Country after his brother John had already made the journey across the sea and was in New England, per the father, Richard's will in England.

William was married at least twice. The first wife's name is not known, they did have children. The second wife was May Lynde Butler, widow of John Butler. She was born 1628 and died 1693.

William was a tavern owner and appeared in Court many times in lawsuits. In January 1666 he was fined for selling strong liquor. He promised for himself and family that they shall no more sell strong liquor.

There were at least six children who reached adulthood

1. William Weeks Jr. born 1645 was still living in 1693.
2. Elizabeth Weeks born 1648 married John Robinson 1 May, 1667. John was born 5 April, 1640
3. Samuel Weeks born 1651
4. Richard Weeks born 1653, died 1724. He married Abigail Norton
5. John Weeks born 1655 married Mary Rowley 7 January, 1676. She was born 20 March, 1653
6. Abigail Weeks born 1658 married Jonathan Hatch, 4 December, 1676.

NOTES ON THE ANCESTRY OF BENJAMIN WEEKS

(William Weeks, the father of Benjamin Weeks, first married Mercy Robinson and upon her death then married Mary Hatch. Because there are some important dates unrecorded in this sequence of events, it is impossible to determine which of William's wives was the mother of his eight children. In an effort to solve this mystery Judy Anderson has devoted considerable time and energy to researching the relevant literature. The result of these efforts is presented below.)

WILLIAM WEEKS

The surname of Weeks, a corruption of the name Atwick alias Wickes, seems to surface in the parish of Staines, County of Middlesex, which is located about fifteen miles west of London. In 1638 in the will of a Richard Wickes -- dated August 4 and proved November 8 of that year -- he directed his executors "to pay to my son John Wickes now living in New England L200 at the feast of the birth of our Lord God next coming, . . ." He also left a bequest to another son: "To my son William L300, as follows, L30 in three months and the remainder in three years and he to have L10 paid him every half year in the meantime, and if he should die, or never come to claim it, then to be divided between my sons John and Robert and their children."(1)

There was a John Wickes living in Plymouth in 1637. He departed to Rhode Island in 1639, then moved with his friend, Samuel Gorton, to Warwick in 1643. He remained there until his death at the hands of the Indians during King Philip's war in November of 1675. He was sixty-six years of age.(2)

The will of Robert Wickes of Staines implies that William was either leaving England or already gone, and that it was in doubt whether he would return to claim his inheritance. Mr. Banks feels it logical that one brother followed the other to the new world and that since our William Weeks was a sea-faring man and did a packet business between Rhode Island and the Vineyard, there was a presumptive connection established for the two being brothers.(3) However, at the present time there is no proof for a connection.

William Weeks first appears on the Vineyard records in 1653, (4) in the area to be later known as Edgartown, but would have to have been there at an earlier date to have been able to participate in the division of land.

The first settlers of the town probably were assigned lots by the proprietors, one of the main ones being Gov. Thomas Mayhew. The land was sold to those desiring residence, but a transaction of concerning the distribution of those deeds does not exist. It is assumed that the first allotments of the common lands took
place between 1646 and 1652, and included the "Divided Lots" located south of the town bordering on the Great Pond and Katama. These lots consisted of from ten to forty acres each. (5) It was decided that a fair division of the land would consist of 20 acres to a man, unless they already had property, then that amount would be less.

The first division of this "common" land took place 8 May 1653, and was to be meted out in twenty equal parts. The Weeks received lot eleven. Upon subsequent division of land between 1664 and 1669 Williams Weeks continued to receive a share. (6)

In 1655 he was granted land "near the pines in the middle of the island."(7) It is known that he was married at that time because of a deposition by Goodwife Weeks, dated Dec. 25, 1655, but the given name of his wife is unknown.(8) It may be that he brought his children with him, or they may have been born after his move to Martha's Vineyard. Some time before 1658 his wife died.

William was serving in the position of constable in 1660, as he was notified by Gov. Thomas Mayhew "to levie upon the estate of John Doggett [Daggett] the elder, upon Martin's Vineyard (9) the sum of five thousand [pounds] upon the breach of order in purchasing lands."(10) Apparently Mr. Daggett had taken it upon
himself to negotiate for lands rather than going through the proper channels, and as a result was given a hefty fine. He was unable to come up with such a large amount and appealed to the court at Plymouth. William's name was among those requesting part of the farm when Daggett could not afford to pay the fine. However, upon order of the Plymouth Court, Daggett maintained his title to the land.

His second marriage was thought to be to Mary Lynde, who was the widow of John Butler. She was born about 1629 in Dunstable, Bedford, England, and died after 1693 in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. Her parents were Thomas and Mary Lynde. (11) However, this has not been substantiated at the present time.

Some attribute the children to this second marriage, but since the children were born prior to 1658, it is doubtful this is the case.

As land was claimed and there came a need for expansion, the authorized persons would negotiate with the Indians, on behalf of the colony, to acquire additional property. The "Old Purchase" consisted of two large tracts of land within the town limits of Edgartown, the rights for which had been purchased from Tewantiquatick, and ran from Wintucket to the end of William Week's home lot. (12)

In May of 1653 a town representative purchased part of Ogissket Neck from the Indians and it became known as "The New Purchase." This parcel was not divided until 1673. (13)

The next division of land was the "Plain." It was the largest acquisition of land up to this time and was surveyed and divided by Richard Sarson, Thomas Bayes and Isaac Norton into forty lots. William Weeks received lot six.(14)

William's name appears on the town records for various actions, but the most notable was in 1667. He was making a trading trip from the Vineyard and had his vessel loaded with corn, pork, hides, tobacco, wheat, vegetables, etc. He was wrecked at Quick's Hole and the vessel was seized and looted by Indians of the Elizabeth Islands. Upon giving a deposition, he stated:

One Mondaye night the 18.9.1667 about 2 or 3 a clock in the morning, by reason of the violence of the wind, my anchrs remaining home, my vessell drove a shoare in the harbor at the west end of that Iland next to Quickshole. Myselfe and company then went to warme orselves at an Indian house, the Indians saied the vessell and the goods were theirs, wee answered noe, they had noe right to it, they sent to the Sackym & to the other Indians who all came together, and while they were consulting about the vessell and goods they bid us to goe to the other howse; wee answered noe, they need not turn us out of the howse wee did not hinder them; then the Indians went out of the howse to the next howse & wee went aboard, & about an hower & halfe after wee being returned to the howse the Indians came thither allso, and toll'd us they had determined all together wee should neither have or vessell or goods, they would take them. I desired my chest of them, some of them answered noe there was sum cloth in it & they would have it, I desired my weareing cloathes whch they graunted and some provisions to eate while wee were there wch they graunted. They tooke away a suite of cloathes from me, 2 pre of shooes, all my tooles, the sachim had my saw in his hand wch I would have had, but he woulld not gyve it to me, nor my axe. They tooke away a new Hatt and a new paire of shooes from my sonne: the partyculars lost are my vessell of 15 tunns wth all due furniture belonging to it, and a soresaile to spare, my Cables and anchors I desired of them but they woulld not gyve them unto mee, my vessell was not seene to be staved when we viewed hir at low water, onely the back of hir rudder broken off; my freight aboard was 42li Indian corns, fower barrels of pork, 4 hydes, 1 firkin of buter, 1 smale caske of suett about 40r, on barrell of tobacco, about 34 or 34li cotton wool, 26 bushells meale, 8 bushells of it wheate meale,the rest Rye of Indian meale, 1 bushell wheate, 1 bushell Rye, 2 bushells turnepps, one bushell of Inions, Red cloth 6 yards, 3 or 4 yards pemistone, My leade and lyne with divers other things out of my chest and vessell. Shooes, one poayre women's shooes, two Iron potts, 3 paire Chilldrens shooes, 2 paire new Russett shooes, 40l tallow, two gunns, a greene blankett, a woman's cloake from Goody Doggett, this is the truth of the case at present to or best remembrance.

This declaration above written was attested upon oathe by William Weexe the master of saied vessell, and by his son William and by thomas the Indian who was seaman in the vessell.

Goody Doggett testifies that the Indyans did take away & wtholld the vessell & goods from the master and shee did entreate them to lett him have his vessell againe but they would not, but they allso denied the meale and meate and fetcht it away, all these were taken uppon oathe 22 november 1667 upon the Vynyard. This is the Coppy of what is under oathe

His son, William Jr., accompanied him on this excursion, and both were rescued by John Dixey who told the Governor of New York about the incident. He, in turn, wrote to Governor Mayhnew to deal with the Indians and require restitution of the vessel and its stolen cargo. (16)

Although a resident of Martha's Vineyard prior to 1671, it wasn't until December 11th of that year that his lands were recorded on the town books. The following is a copy of his estate at that time:

The petickelers of the parcells of Land Granted unto William Weeks by the Inhabitance of Edgartown at the Great Harbour of Marthas Vinyard and Ordered to Be Recorded the Day above writen.

One whole Comonage of thirty seven Shears with all preveledges there unto Belonging as fish and whale: one house Lott of Twenty Poles Broad Bounded by Thomas Bayes on the South and Richard Sarson on the North Being Ten acres More or Less: to the Line Ten acres eleven Poles and a half Breadth Bounded by Thomas Bayes on the West Richard Sarson on the East: Land Bought of Peter Foulger one Neck Lying West to the Planting feild Being Eight acres More or Less: with one acre and a half of Meadow at Sanchacantackett one shear of Meadow; - one Shear at Feliz Neck: another Shear at Meachemus feild: one Shear at Quanomica: one Shear at Cracketuxett: One Devidant Lying at the Great Neck Being Twenty five acres more or Less Lying betwixt Thomas Peases and Mrs Blands: with one thach Lott ajoyning Part upon my said Devidant at the Neck: at Chapequideck one Lott of three acres More or Less Bounded by John Pease on the North and young Mr. Mayhew on the South: two acres of Meadow Lying on the South East Side of Chapequideok More or Less: one acre of Meadow on the EastSide of the Planting feild Lying Northward of Thomas Doggetts Be it More or Less: These all Granted By this Town and Purchased of Indians and one twenty fifth part. . . .(17)

He also had land at Homes Hole (18) which was not recorded until February 9, 1680. He had to have secured the property prior to that time, however, as he was appointed to a committee in Tisbury on January 16, 1678 to "view every man's lot and equalize it in the matter of swamp lands." (19) He may have been on the committee, with Isaac Chase and Thomas Mayhew, as an impartial arbitrator. How he came into possession of these lands is not recorded. Since the six shares granted by Governor Mayhew had already been accounted for, it may be that additional land had been acquired by them and subdivided, and that Weeks obtained a portion of this. Existing records would lead credence to this assumption, as in 1681 mention of "the English lyne" is referred to, and in 1685 "the line which parts the English land from the Indian land," is mentioned.(20) In 1683 he sold one-sixth of the "two Southermost lots of land: 42 poles by the harbor extending to the fresh pond."(21) In 1685 he sold "one compleat half of one third part of the two southmost lots of land upon the Neck."(22) The English Line is thought to have run from Bass creek to the head of Tashmoo pond, and to have marked the southern boundary of the original grant to the six shareholders. All of this land eventually was purchased by Isaac Chase.(23)

Apparently he had also secured land in Falmouth, possibly for investment purposes as Joseph Hull bought property from Jacob Perkins in Falmouth, and it was noted that Jacob had bought that property from William Weeks, Sr. 31 Oct. 1677. (24)

Several suits against William indicate that he operated a tavern. He appeared in various business and litigation activities between 1684 and 1687. In 1688 he sold his real estate interests in Homes Hole to Isaac Chase. A final sale in December of that year seems to be his last transaction. Between that date and August 3, 1689 he died, as his widow, Mary, sold the home lot and he is referred to as being deceased.(25) Sons William and Richard challenged her right to sell the lands as they claimed ownership. They won proved their case and the court gave them possession of the property.

There is no record of a will or probation for William. His son, Samuel, had land in the Vineyard, but he sold out in 1688. So, with the death of William, the Weeks family name was no longer found on the island until 1710 when Joshua Weeks settled in Tisbury. (26)

Weeks, William Sr (I1809)
 
3757 William Weeks Jr.
Son of William Weeks Sr.
William Jr. son of William Sr. was born 1645 in MA. He died in 1744. William married Mercy Robinson who was born 4 July, 1647 and was baptisized at Barnstable, MA. Mercy was remembered in the will of Miles Standish in 1655, who stated whom I have tenderly love for Marcy Robinson for her grandfather’s sake. Her grand father was the Rev. John Robinson, son of John and Ann Robinson and born 1575.

William was with his father on the vessel of Fifteen Toones in 1667 when it was making a trading trip from the Vineyard, it was laden with miscellaneous freight, mostly food and household items when the vessel was wrecked at Quick's Hole. The vessel was seized and looted by the Indians of Elizabeth Island.

WILLIAM WEEKS, JR.

In 1602 an English navigator, Bartholomew Gosnold, explored the south side of Cape Cod, and is believed to have landed at what is the present Wood's Hole. He sailed from the English port which was later Falmouth, England in 1660. In recognition of his landing on the Cape, the name of the area was changed from the Indian name of Suckanessett to Falmouth in 1694.

Wood's Hole was located on the most southern and western part of Cape Cod, and was one of the Falmouth villages people were attracted to before the town was incorporated. It was named for the water passage, or "hole" between Penzance Point and Nonamesset Island, as early as 1654.

In 1677 it had been divided into lots of 60 acres. Among the names of the new owners were Thomas Ewer, William Gifford, Joseph Hull, John Jenkins, Thomas Johnson and William Weeks, "who were Quakers."(39)

William Weeks Jr. was born about 1645 in Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts. He married Mercy Robinson, daughter of Isaac
Robinson and Margaret Hanford, 16 March 1669 in Barnstable.(40) She was christened 4 July 1647 in Barnstable.(41) As far as known, they resided in Barnstable until about 1677/78, when William and his brother, John, were granted land in West Falmouth.(42)

It has been noted in a couple of references that William and John Weeks were Quakers. (43) This is the second mention of William Weeks being a Quaker.

Thus far, I have found nothing which would solidly indicate that the Weeks were of the Quaker persuasion. The only record which might indicate they were members of that faith was the statement William, Sr. made in conjunction with the seizing of his ship by Indians, which is dated "18 . 9 . 1667".

Quakers did not use the names for days of the weeks or months of the year as most of the names were derived from pagan gods. Instead, they would indicate dates by writing them as: "18th day 9th mo. 1667." William's method of dating his statement may just have been co-incidental, however.

In the History of Barnstable County, by Simeon L. Deyo, pg. 672, it states that nearly all of the early settlers in what became West Falmouth were Quakers. It is known that William Gifford, who was among the first settlers, was a Quaker. With him were William Gifford, Jr., William Weeks and John Weeks. Because they were grouped with some of the Quaker families who were moving into the area, it may have been assumed that John and William were of the same religion, whereas it might simply have been that they championed the cause of religious freedom and moved to an area more congenial with those views.

The land of Woods Hole was divided into lots of 60 acres upland to a share, with the lots commencing at the south end of Little Neck northwest to Great Harbor. Jonathan Hatch, Sr., William Weeks, and William Gifford, among others, received a share. Each also took 10 acres in Great Neck. (44)

In 1685 William's brother, John, took up land in East Falmouth, east of the Five-Mile River, now Dexter's River. In 1691, both he and William were granted lands on the plains. (45)

Mercy died some time after 1687. (46) and William married Mary Hatch, daughter of Jonathan Hatch and Sarah Rowley, about 1689.(47) She was born 14/16 July 1647/48 in Barnstable, Massachusetts.(48)

There is some question whether the Weeks children are from the first or second marriage. The information I have found thus far would seem to point out that they were from the first marriage, with the exception of the C. W. Swift revision of Genealogical Notes of Barnstable Families, page 467, in which it is indicated that because the children were christened with names common to the Hatch line rather than the Weeks line, he was confident that the mother of the children was Mary Hatch. The Robinson family genealogy attributes the children to the first marriage. The Hatch family genealogy attributes them to the second marriage.

I thought I had solved the problem when I checked Vital Records of Falmouth, Massachusetts to the Year 1850, by Oliver B. Brown, pg. 128. A list of births of the children assigned them to William and Mary Weeks. Then, I got to the "Marriages" part, and a marriage between William Weeks and "Mary" Robinson was recorded, which threw me right back in the middle of the stew. Apparently "Mary" is a diminutive form of "Mercy". To cover all bases, I went to the original microfilmed records, thinking someone may have misinterpreted handwriting. However, the old record is very legibly written, and there is no mistaking the entries. (49) A transcription of that record is found in the appendix.

Due to the fact that the Hatch, Weeks, and Chase families lived in the same general area, and that there was intermarriage among the families, I don't find it unusual that different names would surface in the family line. However, until additional information comes to light, the precise parentage of the children is in doubt. With that in mind, I will also do a history of the Hatch family in the event Mary Hatch was the parent of the children.

The exact date of William's death is unknown, but it would have been after 1716. He was a witness to the will of Jonathan Hatch in 1710/11, in which Jonathan mentions his daughter, Mary "Weaks."(50) It was signed in 1705 and witnessed by John and William Weeks. I would assume it was this document that pointed to Mary Hatch as William's second wife.

William, and either Mercy Robinson Weeks or Mary Hatch Weeks, had the following children:

1) Mary(51) Weeks, born 16 Jan. 1669/1670 Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(52) Md. Aaron Rowley, son of Moses Rowley, 7 Jan. 1690 in Barnstable.(53) He was born 1 May 1666 in Barnstable; died in 1743.(54)

2) Mehitable Weeks, born 16 Oct. 1671 in Falmouth.(55)

3) Sarah Weeks, born 6 May 1674, Falmouth.(56) Md. Seth Stuart 14 June 1716 in Massachusetts.(57)

4) Experience Weeks, born 24 June 1677, Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(58) Md. Timothy Robinson, son of John Robinson, 3 May 1699, Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(59)

5) Mercy Weeks, born 24 Apr. 1679, Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(60) Died 4 Feb. 1708/1709. Md. (1st) Ebenezer Meigs, son of John Meigs, 17 Oct. 1700, Guilford, New Haven, Connecticut. Md. (2nd) Jacob Burnipus, son of Jacob, 18 Apr. 1705. (TAG, Apr. 1967.)

6) Jonathan Weeks, born 1 May 1681, Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(61) Md. Mercy Robinson, 26 Oct. 1704. (Sandwich VR & Weeks Gen.)(62)

7) *Benjamin Weeks (Beniamen), born 4 Apr. 1685, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(63) Died abt. 1744/45, Carteret County, North Carolina. Md. Mary Chase, daughter of Isaac Chase and Mary Tilton, 14 January 1704 - 27 May 1704 in Vinyard Haven, Dukes County, Massachusetts.(64) She was born about 1687.(65) (See below)

8) Lydia Weeks, born 30 June 1687, Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(66) Md. William Swift, son of William & Elizabeth Swift, 9 Oct. 1707, Falmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.(67) He was of Yarmouth, Massachusetts.

Willis A. married Feb. 23, 1843, in Camden County, Georgia, to Mehalia Johns, born 1827 in Camden County, daughter of George Johns and his wife Anna. They had fifteen children, so they were off to a good start of populating the surrounding counties of south Georgia and northeast Florida. The history of Willis Aaron's life portrays him as a "rough and ready" frontier man. Mr. Hodges, an Indian fighter, and served several enlistment's in the Indian Wars. His first wife died about 1880, Mr. Hodges married Mrs. Basheby Gainey, said to be a Cherokee Indian, born Jan.10, 1845, in Ware County, died in Charlton, Georgia, Nov. 3, 1931.

3796 [about Andrews Chapel] "On the 2nd of October 1809, a plot of land containing two acres was given by Luke Parker for the sum of 10 shillings, or $1.25, to trustees, viz. Nicholas Parker, William Parker, Thomas Parker, Owen Owens and William Miller, for the purpose of erecting a house of worship for the use of the Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1816, a church was built of logs and called Parkers Meeting House, mainly through the influence of Nicholas Parker." from The Heritage of Sampson County, North Carolina. Oscar M. Bizell, Ed. The Sampson Co. Historical Society, Newton Grove, North Carolina, 1983, p. 81.

Luke Parker, was born between 1770 and 1775. Luke's name does not appear in the Sampson County North Carolina census as head of a family, so he was probably still living with his parents John and Rachael (Sessums) Parker, as there was a male age 16 to 26 listed in John's household. Luke Parker was mentioned in his father's will. He was to receive Johns's plantation after Rachael died. He was also to receive following his mother's death, a 1/4 share in John's two Negroes, and a 1/3 share in all of John's stock. Parker's Meeting House was founded by John Parker and meetings were held in his home. After his death, Luke Parker deeded two acres of his plantation for the church for the amount of two shillings on October 2, 1809. The trustees were to erect and build a church for the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Luke Parker married Sophia_______. He appears as a head of family on the 1810, 1820 and 1830 census for Sampson County, North Carolina. Luke Parker served as a soldier in the War of 1812, as a member of Captain Thomas Boykin's Company, North Carolina Drafted Militia, stationed at Deepwater Point. He enlisted July 24, 1813 with the rank of private. He is listed on the muster roll dated Sept 26, 1813 as "Sick in Hospital." He was mustered out October 19, 1813 and he appears on a "Muster roll of a Detachment of Married Men Discharged, by Order of Adjutant General of North Carolina, from the Detached Militia stationed in Deepwater Point. Luke Parker appears in the minutes of the County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. In Book 2, Court, May 10, 1801 he was ordered along with others to open stream of water called Little Cohary. The next week he was ordered again to work on Little Cohary. Court, May 12, 1806 he and others were ordered to serve in Fraziers District. Court, August 11, 1806, He worked on Little Cohary from Parkers Bridge to Magees Bridge. In Book 3, Court, August 14, 1809, Luke Parker sworn on the grand jury. Court, Nov. 13, 1809, a deed from Luke Parker to trustees of church for two acres of land was proven in Court for Registration. Court, May 21, 1810, Luke Parker and others to be Patriots in Captain Buttery's District. Court, Nov. 9, 1810, Luke Parker to be overseer of River in "room" of Owen Owens and the usual hands to work under him. Luke Parker sold 100 acres of land to John Parker, presumably his nephew, the son of William, on July 28, 1827. This parcel of land was located on the "West side of Little Cohary and on both sides of the beaver dam" and was sold for $100. This appears to be the identical tract of land which was granted to John Parker, Sr., October 29, 1782, from the State of North Carolina. Luke Parker sold to John Parker for $149 on February 5, 1828, four parcels of land on the "west side of Little Cohary" totaling 272 acres. All four parcels were located in the vicinity of the "beaver dam swam." On March 3, 1831 there was a final sale for $950 for nine tracts of land, totaling 831 acres to Silas Herring. After this sale Luke Parker and his family moved from Sampson County, North Carolina to Alachua (now Columbia) County, Florida. The move took place between March 1831, the date of the deed and April 1832, the date of the birth of Luke's last child, Henry Parker. Luke Parker served in the Second Seminole War after moving to Florida. He enlisted January 27, 1837 at Ft. Beckham in Captain Edward's Mounted Company, 1st Regiment, Warren's Florida Militia, as a private. He served until June 5, 1837. He reenlisted as a private June 16, 1837 in Captain Livingston's Company, 2nd Regiment, East Florida Mounted Volunteers, at Ft. Palmetto, and served until Dec. 18, 1837. He was mustered out at Ft. Gilliland, Florida. Luke Parker died June 8, 1838. Sophia Parker is believed to have died before 1840.

Thomas Chase was born possibly in Willesden Parish, Londonor Cromwell Parish, Nottingham. He died intestate in 1652. Early genealogical histories of the family indicate that Thomas and Aquila came from
Cornwall, England. It is believed that they were employed by an uncle named Thomas Chase, who was part owner of a ship named "John & Francis" and that they learned to become navigators. Thomas' brother, Aquila, was granted land in Hamptonon the condition that he go to sea and service the town for four years. Thiswould tend to verify the above theory and would explain why they were found on the coast rather than in their original area of birth.

The settlement of Hampton, New Hampshire Began on October 14, 1638, under the leadership of Rev. Stephen Bachiler. By the first part of 1639 another group arrived with Timothy Dalton, who became the associate pastor of the Hampton Church. It is probable that Thomas and Aquila were with this second group, as by 1640 immigrations had slowed considerably. We know that Thomas, at least, was in the second group as he is mentioned in a list of families that came to Hampton that second summer.

In June of 1640 small grants were made to a number of people including Aquila and Thomas Chase. These grants were for six-acre house lots. Aquila later acquired six acres of upland meadow and swamp, which was sold to his brother, Thomas, when he moved to Newbury, now located in the present state of Massachusetts. In fact, it was his acknowledgement in court of the sale of all his land in Hampton, except a dwelling and one and one-half acre, to his brother, Thomas Chase of Hampton.

On February 23, 1645/46 sixty owners of house lots were given one or more shares in the "Common" Aquila received one and Thomas two.

Thomas' signature on a deed of sale to John Shilbrick shows that he was literate man. His purchase of land which abutted the river was probably to facilitate his livelihood. He was a seaman who paid for the building of a vessel by freighting boards from Exeter to Boston. The large trees along the coast were much in demand for the building of dwellings.

The Thomas Chase homestead was a short way from "The Meeting House Green" and opposite that of his father-in-law, Thomas Philbrick. The site selected for the erection of a house of worship was on the northerly side of the salt marsh, about one-fourth mile distant from it. A large tract of land near it was called The Meeting House Green and included all of what ws later know as the Ring Swamp, along the road around it. A common-way was laid along the eastern edge and later became the main road to the seashore. Around the green and along the common-way many homes were built, some of which are still inhabitated by descendants of the original owners.[ThomasChaseDescendants.ged]

Acquila Chase,first generation of Chase's in the U.S.
Acquila Chase, B. 1618, Chesham, England. Appears first in this country from Hampton, NH.
A company under Rev. Stephen Bachiler is supposed to have founded this settlement 10/14/1638. Early in 1639 a band of settlers came with Timothy Dalton, who became associate pastor of the church of Hampton. The town
was incorporated by the General Assembly of the Massachusetts Bay Colony on 5/22/1639. It is probable that Acquila and Thomas Chase came with the second company. In 1640 Acquila Chase had six acres granted to him for a house lot. He removed to Newberry, Mass about 1646 where he received "Four Acres of land at the new towne for a house and six acres of upland for a planting lot, and six acres of marsh where it can be had, also on
condition that he go to sea and do service in the towne with a boat for four years."

This inducement to remove to Newberry would indicate that he was a mariner or a fisherman, and Joshua Griffen in his History of Newberry states that it was a Chase family tradition that Acquila was the first man to pilot a vessel across the bar at themouth of the Merrimack River. A deposition taken in 1666 speaks of his as Acquila Chase, aged about 4.

He died 12/27/1670. A tablet of Caen Stone in theentrance corridor of the New England Historical Genealogocal Society's building at 9 Asburn St., Boston, says: Acquila Chase
Mariner
Hampton, NH.1640
Newberry, Mass. 1646
By repute the first pilot at the mouth of the Merrimack River. Erect his descendant John Carrol Chase 1928.
Acquila Chase first appears at Hampton,N.H.A company under the leadership of Rev. Stephen Bachiler is supposed to have commenced the Settlement on 14 Oct. 1638.(Dow's History of Hampton).Early in the year of 1639,a new
band of settlers came with Mr. Timothy Dalton,who became associate past of the Hampton church.The town was incorporated by the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony 22 May 1639.It is probable that Acquila and
Thomas Chase came with the second company as it appears that emigration was greatly diminished by the year 1640.

The Hampton records show that in the year 1640,there was granted to Acquila Chase six acres for a house lot.In 1644 an additional grant was recorded of six acres of "upland meadow and swamp",which he sold to his
brother, Thomas,on his removal to Newbury.More information can be obtained from Seven Generations of Thomas and Acquila Chase. One story about early American traditions willbe told.Before he removed to Newbury,he was seen gathering peas on the firstday of the week and at the Quarterly Court held at Ipswich,29 Sept. 1646,he and his wife, and David Wheeler, his brother-in- law,all of Hampton,were presented for gathering peas on the Sabbath.

One handed down tradition states that Acquila and David were returning home from a bountiful fishing day,upon
their arrival,Ann proceded to the garden and prepare a meal celebrating their catch.It came to pass that they were caught and were supposedly punished for their act.The rest as it is said is history.

Other records recently found state that Acquila Chase came over from England on the Mary and John in 1630 but fails to mention his brother on that specific voyage.Other voyages of thatship occured between 1620-1643.
* All data was taken from book previously mentioned and other recorded material too numerous to mention.
