Mary Blake1

Name VariationMary's surname was recorded by Torrey as BLAKE and appears in her Milton marriage transcription to Joseph Leonard as BLACK.2,3,4
Residence*At the time of her marriage, Mary was living in Milton, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).5
Marriage*15 December 1679She married Joseph Leonard of Taunton, son of James Leonard and Mary Jane Martin, on 15 December 1679 in Taunton, Plymouth Colony.5,6
Marriage*before 20 December 1699She married second, as his second wife, Joseph Willis, son of Deacon John Willis and Elizabeth Hodgkins, before 20 December 1699 in Taunton, Bristol County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).

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 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

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

It was bounded as follows: beginning at a stake and heap of stones, the southerly corner of Richard Davenport's land, from there running southerly about 75 poles to a stake and heap of stones to the highway, then running easterly about 42 poles to the corner post and a heap of stones, then running northerly about 53 poles by Seth Hayward's land to a red oak tree marked on two sides, and from there about 45 poles in a straight line to the bounds first mentioned. The deed further stated that Enoch had received the property as an "absolute estate of inheritance in fee simple" and had the full power and lawful authority to sell it.

Mother*Sarah Chesebrough1 b. 24 Dec 1663, d. 24 Oct 1743
Birth*21 March 1709Abigail Bolton was born on 21 March 1709 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,2
(4th Daughter) Guardianship4 June 1722Abigail was a minor child of 12 and her brothers, Joseph and Nathaniel Bolton, were also minors when their father died on 21 December 1721. Joseph at age 17 and Nathaniel at age 15, both being under the age of 21 and above the age of 14 were, under the law, permitted to choose their own guardians. Both Joseph and Nathaniel chose their mother, Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and she was approved by the court on 4 June 1722. Abigail was under the age of 14 and, on the same date, the court appointed the children's mother guardian of Abigail, as well.

Sarah's guardianship duties to all three of her minor children, as instructed by the court, were to take them into her care and tuition until their majority at age 21. She was directed, for each child, to take into her hands and possession, to their benefit, their estates, lands, moneys, goods and chattels for the purpose of improving them in such a manner as she should judge best for them. She was also instructed to submit a plain and true account of her guardianship for each upon oath, and to include all and singular such estate that came into her hands and possession by virtue of her guardianship, and to account for the profits and improvements of each of the minor children's estates. She would be lawfully required to pay and deliver the accounting, and as much of the estate remaining, after first being examined and allowed by the appropriate judge, as each child reached the age of full majority.3,4
(4th Daughter) Estate and Land5 April 1723The personal estate of Abigail's father, John Bolton, late of Bridgewater, after the payment of debts and charges, was divided by agreement between Sarah, his widow, and their children.

A special committee of five good and sufficient freeholders, Josiah Edson Esq., Nathaniel Hayward, Joseph Edson, Nathaniel Brett and John Field, was appointed by Judge Isaac Winslow to determine a fair distribution of real estate that John Bolton died seized of in the County of Plymouth. The committee's task was completed on 5 April 1723 and included setting off the widow Sarah Bolton's Dower or Thirds of housing and lands, and also setting off an equitable portion or share of land for each of the couple's ten children, John Bolton Jr., Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth Bolton, Nicholas Bolton, Mary Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton, and Abigail Bolton.

Abigail Bolton, the couple's fourth daughter and youngest child, received the portion or share defined by the committee as Lot# 5. It was in the homelands, and was bounded northerly by the highway, and bounded north-westerly with the range of the 50 acres, and then ranging by the land of her eldest brother, John Bolton Jr., 12 rods to a stake, and then running from the stake north-east, and by north by a red oak marked on two sides in a straight range to the highway.5,6
(Sister) Land Transfer16 February 1730The surviving siblings of John Bolton Jr., all residing in Bridgewater and consisting of Nicholas Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton and Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth (Bolton) May and Abigail Bolton and their husbands, William Leonard and Michael May, children and heirs of John Bolton, late of Bridgewater, signed a deed agreement on 16 February 1730, registered on 13 March 1743, stating that their honored father, had in his lifetime, sold to their brother John Bolton Jr. of Bridgewater, yeoman, for a valuable consideration, a small parcel of land containing by estimation one acre and a half which lay adjoining to their brother's land where he then lived in Bridgewater. The land was described as beginning at a stake and heap of stones which was on bounds of his own land, then running northerly about 5 rods to a red oak tree marked on two sides and running still on the low range 6 rods and a half further to a stake and a heap of stones. From there running easterly about 20 rods (by a double red oak and a single red oak) to a rock by the side of the river, then bounded by the river upstream to John Bolton Jr.'s land. Then by his land to the bounds first mentioned. The deed then stated that, because their honored father did not give a deed to their brother, they separately and together, released all claim to the tract or parcel of land to their brother.7
(4th Daughter) Estate and Land25 September 1730Abigail's sister, Mary Bolton, had died intestate and the settlement and distribution of her real estate was completed on 25 September 1730. Mary's estate was divided into ten equal shares and distributed between her mother, Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and brothers and sisters, John Bolton, Samuel Bolton, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, Elizabeth (Bolton) May, Nicholas Bolton, Elisha Bolton, Joseph Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton, and Abigail Bolton.

A special committee of five freeholders consisting of Joseph Alden, whose land bordered the deceased's, and Joseph Edson, Eleazer Carver, Daniel Hudson and Jonathan Sprague had earlier been appointed by Judge Isaac Winslow on 15 June 1730 to inventory Mary's land and to determine, in their best judgment, an equitable division of her real estate, which they estimated to be 6 acres. Their recommendation, submitted to the court on 10 August 1730 and approved on 21 August 1730, distributed the lands into ten equal shares or lots.

Abigail's share was part of the lot identified as the eighth, ninth and tenth shares, which were distributed together as one larger lot to Abigail, her mother, the widow Sarah (Chesebrough) Bolton, and to her older brother, Samuel Bolton. The lot was on the east end and joining to the lot distributed to Sarah's eldest daughter, Sarah (Bolton) Leonard, and also joined to the southerly side of the easterly end of the lot distributed to her second daughter, Elizabeth (Bolton) May. The combined share contained about 18 rods of land, together with the Bolton house, and began at a stake and heap of stones which was at the south-east corner of the lot, and from there ranged north 30 degrees east 4 rods and 1/4 to a stake and heap of stones standing near an apple tree, and from there ranged south 56 degrees east 7 rods to a stake and heap of stones standing by the highway and bounded by the highway 8 rods to the bounds first mentioned at the south-east corner of the combined share.8,9
Marriage*11 May 1736She married Samuel Ripley, son of William Ripley and Mary Corbison, on 11 May 1736 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,10,11
(Sister) Will27 May 1755Abigail's brother John Bolton wrote a will dated 27 May 1755 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, in New England. His five daughters were his primary beneficiaries, and his will also directed that his sister Abigail, during her widowhood, to her improvement, should have the small west front room in his house and as much firewood as she wanted out of his home farm.12,13,14,1
