Reverend Ralph Partridge1

b. 12 April 1579
Birth*12 April 1579Reverend Ralph Partridge was born on 12 April 1579 in Kent County, England.1
Relationship Note*Were Reverend Ralph Partridge and George Partridge related?... Regarding George Partridge of Duxbury, James Savage in his Genealogical Dictionary suggested he was "perhaps" a brother of Reverend Ralph Partridge being mentioned in 1636 Duxbury records, the same year that Ralph came. Charles Henry Pope in his Pioneers of Massachusetts stated Ralph had a son George who was granted land in Duxbury.

It was only after Robert Charles Anderson, in his Great Migration series, presented his convincing analysis that this researcher could state with confidence that George Partridge and the Reverend Ralph Partridge may not have been related at all, and were most certainly not father and son. Anderson stated, "Close examination of the records reveals no evidence that these two men were related at all" and listed the following points in reaching his conclusion.2,3,4,5

(CLUE Person) Residence2 May 1805An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce, and believed to be the same Zilpah Peirce who died in 1809, placed an advertisement dated 2 May 1805 in the Independent Chronicle newspaper of Boston. It ran on May 2, 13 and 27 and read: "Salt Rheum &c. cured. WIDOW ZILPAH PEIRCE has for Sale, Indian Salve and Wash, which has cured numbers of the Salt Rheum, feald head, sore legs, &c.

Birth*1782Zilpah was born in 1782, the location not yet determined. Her year of birth was calculated from the information that she died at age 26 in 1808.1,2

(CLUE? Identity) Residence1800An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce was listed in The Boston Directory of 1800. Her occupation was given as retailer, commerce(s) and her address as Cambridge street, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. It is a possibility that she may have been "our" Zilpah's mother or other relative.4
(CLUE Identity?) Marriage Intention27 April 1801An intention of marriage for John Samuel Ward Jones and Zilphia Pierce was recorded on 27 April 1801 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. The record included the information that both were white and resided in Boston. No record of a marriage has been found, however, and John married Ann Joyce later that same year. Where this "Zilphia Pierce fits into the Peirce/Pierce family is not yet known.5,6
(CLUE Identity?) Death26 May 1802The death of an individual named Samuel Peirce was reported in the newspaper on 26 May 1802 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He was 63 years old.7
Marriage Intention16 January 1803An intention of marriage for Zilpah Peirce and John Bolton (our Brick Wall Ancestor) was recorded on 16 January 1803 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Both were residents of Boston.8,9
Marriage*13 February 1803Zilpah Peirce married John Bolton (our Brick Wall Ancestor), son of John Bolton and Elizabeth Hayward, on 13 February 1803 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. They were married by the Reverend Samuel Stillman of the First and Second Baptist Churches in Boston.10,5,8,11
(CLUE? Identity) Residence1805An individual named Samuel Peirce appeared in The Boston Directory of 1805 on Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He was listed as a mariner, and at this time it is not known if he was the same Samuel Peirce listed in 1796 as a baker or the one listed that same year as a ship wright or neither.12
Religion*29 March 1805Zilpah Bolton and Nathaniel Everett, along with eight others which included George Briggs Cox, Peter Vallett, John Woodward, Lydia Sweetser, Sally Lovis, Mary Marnson, Ruth Thayer and Venus Sylvester, applied for membership in the Second Baptist Church in Boston at a Friday evening meeting on 29 March 1805. The applicants spoke "with regard to works of grace upon their souls and after a candid and full examination, they were unanimously received into the fellowship as Candidates for baptism."13
Religion31 March 1805Zilpah Bolton and Nathaniel Everett, along with several others including Thomas Ditson, John Hayden, George Briggs Cox, Simeon Blanchard, Francis Green, Peter Vallett, John Woodward, Mary Marnson, Ruth Thayer, Venus Sylvester, Kezia Booth, Lydia Leeds, Botsey Jones, Versan Adams, Zebudah Hayden, Martha Farrar, Betsey Mirth Horton, Catherine Thayer, Lydia Sweetser and Sally Lovis, were baptized and became members of the Second Baptist Church, Boston, on Sunday, 31 March 1805. In the baptismal records, the men and women were listed separately.14,15,2
(CLUE? Identity) Residence2 May 1805An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce, and believed to be the same Zilpah Peirce who died in 1809, placed an advertisement dated 2 May 1805 in the Independent Chronicle newspaper of Boston. It ran on May 2, 13 and 27 and read: "Salt Rheum &c. cured. WIDOW ZILPAH PEIRCE has for Sale, Indian Salve and Wash, which has cured numbers of the Salt Rheum, feald head, sore legs, &c. Indian liquid for Worms; do. tooth ache; do. salves for agued breasts; burns; piles, &c. Innocent and cheap -- no cure, no pay. N.S. The Wash will heal any serusulous humour in the face, and any sore on horses or aminals (sic). Cambridge street, opposite Chamber's street. May 2". At this point in our research we are suspecting that she may have been the widow of Samuel Peirce who died on 26 May 1802 in Boston and are "hoping" to learn that they were relatives or possibly even parents of "our" Zilpah.16
(CLUE? Identity) Research Notes1806John O. Webster, whose occupation was "retailer, commerce(s)" was listed in the 1806 Boston City Directory. His address was on Ship Street, the same street where John Bolton, the Marine Mariner, lived in 1807. If he was the same Webster that John Bolton was in business with, he could be a clue, and possibly a brother or brother-in-law of Zilpah's. We need to research this John O. Webster to see what we can learn.17
(CLUE? Identity) Research Notes1806John O. Webster, whose occupation was "retailer, commerce(s)" was listed in the 1806 Boston City Directory. His address was on Ship Street which was also the mariner John Bolton's street in 1807. If our Ancestor John Bolton worked as a mariner in Boston, and if John O. Webster was the Webster John Bolton was in business with, he would be an excellent clue, and possibly a brother or brother-in-law of Zilpah's. We need to research this John O. Webster to see what we can learn.17
(Mother) Research NotesZilpah and John Bolton's daughter was named Elizabeth Everett Brown. The name "Everett" has been and remains a puzzle to us. We have not found the name anywhere in John Bolton's family. After years of research, we have still found no evidence to indicate why "Everett" was Elizabeth Everett Bolton's middle name. We don't even know yet whether she received the name at birth, or if she or someone else added it to her name for a particular reason later. We do believe that "Everett" has a special significance that needs to be identified. Elizabeth named her first daughter Elizabeth Everett and her oldest son, James Ormond Brown, named his second son Everett. Our first clue to the "Everett" name was found just recently when we learned that Elizabeth's mother, Zilpah (Peirce) Bolton and a man named Nathaniel Everett both applied for membership in the Second Baptist Church in Boston at the same Friday evening meeting and were baptized together on the same Sunday just one year before Elizabeth was born. We obviously need to learn about this Nathaniel Everett and his family in order to determine if he may possibly be our link to the Everett name and maybe even to Zilpah's family and/or to Elizabeth's life between her mother's death in Boston in 1808 and Elizabeth's marriage in Milton, Norfolk County at age 17 in 1823.13,14

Warning: In this researcher's opinion, some of the information and the dates, particularly, in this pedigree chart often prove to be inaccurate. At the same time, the information presented was a good place for us to start, and has provided us with valuable clues for pursuing future research strategies in our attempt to establish a factual history of our Heaton family.

Reviewing the digitized documents, it was found that Elijah was the given name of the groom listed in the next entry of the register, and on the earliest handwritten copy of that page, Elijah could probably be mistaken for "Black."
