(Witness to Bond) Guardianship12 April 1841The petition of Gardner Winslow, a yeoman of Berkley, Bristol County, Massachusetts, to become the guardian for Harlos Bolton, a minor over the age of fourteen years and the son of John Bolton, late of Berkley, deceased, was filed on 12 April 1841 with the Judge of the Probate Court of Bristol County. Harlos had his choice of guardians and chose Gardner Winslow who signed a one thousand dollars bond outlining his obligations to his ward and the court. Two other men, Samuel Chace and Edward Blake of Berkley and Taunton respectively, also signed the bond with Gardner, and his petition for guardianship was granted on 25 Jun 1841.1

John Bligh of London, Esq.1

d. 1666
Birth*John Bligh of London, Esq. was born in England.1
Historical Note*1641The Irish Rebellion of 1641 began as an attempted coup d'état by the Irish Catholic gentry, who tried to seize control of the English administration in Ireland to force concessions for Catholics. The coup failed and the rebellion developed into an ethnic conflict between native Irish Catholics on one side, and English and Scottish Protestant settlers on the other. In order to raise money for quelling the rebellion, King Charles I, with his Act 16 followed by several amendments, provided that two and one-half million acres of forfeited lands should be allotted to such persons as should advance or adventure money for that purpose, in certain proportions as mentioned in the Act. The Act also instructed that the lands of all persons in rebellion against the Protestants on 23 October 1641, or at any time thereafter, should be forfeited without office or inquisition. The persons advancing moneys were called "adventurers" because the sums advanced were not advanced by way of loan, but by way of "adventure", or speculation, because the lands that were "promised" were dependent on the suppression of the rebellion. The lands, when allocated, were to be held in free and common socage, meaning as payment for services, and not be feudal tenure, meaning threatened by changing rules or forfeiture, and were to be subject to a constant yearly rent reserved to the Crown

The rebellion was not finally repressed until 1652, and in that year an "Ordinance" was passed by the Commonwealth Parliament declaring the rebellion to be ended and defining the classes of forfeiting persons, and the extent to which their estates were forfeited. A further Ordinance in 1653 charged the forfeited lands with the amounts needed to satisfy the claims of the adventurers and with the arrears of pay due to the officers and soldiers. The soldiers' claims were to be satisfied in lands at the same rates as the adventurers.

Many difficulties arose in the carrying out of the Settlement, which was still incomplete in 1660, at the time of the English Restoration and the return of Charles II to the throne.2,3
Marriage*He married Catherine Fuller, daughter of Thomas Fuller.1
Occupation*John was employed as an agent to the adventurers for the estates forfeited by the rebellion in 1641. In that capacity he went over to Ireland in the time of Oliver Cromwell's government and became an adventurer himself by pledging £600. In August 1654, on behalf of himself and two others, John purchased with their joint stock, shares from a variety of other individuals. When their allotments were made they fell in the baronies of Lune and Moghergallen, and in the county of Meath and totaled several thousand acres.1
Death*1666He died in1666.1

Marriage*16 June 1767Sarah Bennett married second Aaron Farnsworth, son of Benjamin Farnsworth and Mary Prescott, on 16 June 1767.1
Marriage*16 May 1776She married third William Bolton, son of William Bolton and Elizabeth White, on 16 May 1776 in Reading, Middlesex County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). Most published sources state that William Bolton married Sarah Lewis, and not Sarah Farnsworth. A William Bolton did marry a Sarah Lewis on 18 Sep 1788. However it is believed by current Bolton family reseachers that that marriage was not this William. They are in possession of documentation to verify their information on the Blood, Farnsworth and Bolton lines.1,2,3
Residence*1794Sarah's husband, William Bolton, added to the large farm he had purchased in 1773 in Shirley, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. The house, with the ridgepole parallel with the road and sloping back, after the manner of the time, to a shed in the rear, was conspicuous as the first house west of West Groton. The place became known later as "The Peter Tarbell Place." Near the house there was an old barn, still functioning in 1889 as it had in the days before the Revolutionary War.3,4
