Moses Simmons

(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656Moses Simmons was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. Moses Simmons was one of those who never relocated his family and moved to Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share.

(Grantor) Land Transfer1660George Soule, Moses Simmons and Philip Delano never moved to Bridgewater and in 1660 sold their proprietor shares to Nicholas Byram who settled there soon after.6

(Grantee) Deed Memorial1 August 1770 On 1 August 1770 Walter Hinds of Corrakane, County Cavan, Ireland, and his son Thomas Hinds made a Memorial Deed, Conveyance and Will agreement with Alexander Slator of Whitehill, County Longford on behalf of his daughter, Anne Sleater. After reciting that a marriage was intended to occur between Thomas Hinds and Anne Sleater and affirming Walter Hinds' love and regard for his son Thomas, Walter officially made a "child's part and portion" transfer by deed, to Thomas, of the Lands of Gortnatrieve and Behy "with all their appurtenances (rights and privileges) in as full and ample a manner" as Walter Hinds "enjoyed and possessed". Next, Alexander Sleater, in consideration of the intended marriage, agreed to pay to Thomas Hinds £800 Sterling as a "marriage portion" and finally, Thomas Hinds agreed that in consideration of the marriage portion, as soon as the marriage had been solemnized, would settle on his new wife, Anne, by proper deed, a jointure of £60 yearly in case there should be no issue from the marriage or in case of issue, £50 yearly. Thomas also agreed that after his death, Anne's jointure would continue and that the Rights and Title of the Lands would descend to the male issue of the marriage and that after Anne's death, her jointure should also return to the male issue of the marriage. In his agreement, Thomas reserved the right "at any time he should think proper" to raise on the Lands the sum of £1000 as portions for younger children. It was further agreed that should there be no male issue of the marriage, then it should be lawful for Thomas Hinds to raise the sum of £2000 from the Lands for the female issue of the marriage and that then, and in that case, the Lands should revert and return to Thomas' father, Walter Hinds, and his heirs. It was further agreed that should Thomas survive Anne and decide to marry a second wife, that then it should be lawful for Thomas to raise on the Lands £40 as a Dower to be settled on the woman at the second marriage. Witnesses to the Articles of Agreement were the Reverend George Carson of Cragham and John Hinds of Corrakane, County of Cavan, and the Memorial was executed, signed and sealed by Thomas Hinds in the presence of John Hinds and Thomas Faris of the City of Dublin, Gentleman. John Hinds made an oath stating that he was a subscribing witness to the Articles of Agreement and to this Memorial, saying that he saw the Articles duly executed by the parties of Walter Hinds, Thomas Hinds and Alexander Sleater and that he also saw the Memorial executed by Thomas Hinds.

The deed began with a review of four pertinent events: William Gerrard's 1788 will and subsequent 1790 probate, the death of Matthew Hinds, husband of William's daughter Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, before or in 1809, and the 1813 marriage settlement agreement for Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Potterton.

Reciting that William Gerrard of Dormstown, County Meath, gentleman, deceased, made his will dated 24 December 1788 and thereby, amongst bequests to his other daughters, bequeathed unto the Reverend Singleton Harpur, Robert Waller and James Gibney, his trustees, an amount of £1200 in trust that they and his survivors and the executors and administrators of such survivors, should place out the same at interest and permit his daughter Sarah Hinds to receive the yearly interest for her separate use. And further, that after the death of his daughter Sarah, the trustees, their executors and administrators, should transfer the £1200 to such of Sarah's children as should be then living, and that by her will she should approve and appoint his daughters Rebecca Hinds, Elizabeth, Anne and Catherine Gerrard executors. Reciting further that William Gerrard died without altering his will and that it was proved in the Court of Prerogative Probate granted to Elizabeth Gerrard, Catherine Gerrard, since married to John Small, and Anne Gibney, three of the executors named and that the £1200 bequeathed by the will to Sarah was secured by the bond of Robert Waller, deceased, then of Ministown in the County of Meath, Esq. bearing date of 22 February 1790 with an attorney's warrant for confession of judgment in the final sum of £2400 conditioned for payment of the principal sum of £1200 under the will of William Gerrard upon which Anne Gibney, Rebecca Hinds, John Small and Catherine his wife did, around 1809, obtain a judgment in the Court of Common Pleas against Robert Waller stating that Matthew Hinds, husband of Sarah, was since dead leaving his widow Sarah and three children, namely Eleanora Anne, Martha and John Hinds, all of whom had attained their respective ages of 21 years. Next the deed explained that, by an indented deed of four parts dated 26 August 1813 and made between Thomas Potterton, Anna Maria Donnelly and Hester Rynd of the first part, Sarah Hinds of the second part, Eleanora Anne, then Hinds, of the third part, and Henry Potterton, gentleman, and Rebecca Hinds of the fourth part, the deed recited that a marriage was intended shortly to be had between Thomas Potterton and Eleanora Anne Hinds, and reciting that £1200 was held in trust for Sarah, mother of Eleanora Anne, and that on the result of the marriage being accomplished, Sarah had agreed that £600 of the £1200 should be payable to Thomas Potterton immediately after Sarah's death; then the agreement witnessed that in consideration of the intended marriage and the £600, Thomas made a provision for Eleanora in case she should outlive him and her issue. The indenture further witnessed a deed in which Sarah, in consideration of the intended marriage, had made provisions for Eleanora Anne and did give, grant and appoint the £600, being one-half of the £1200, to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators and assigns to be payable to Eleanora Anne, her executors, administrators or assigns immediately after the death her mother, Sarah. Then it was witnessed that the marriage had taken effect and that Thomas Potterton, by virtue of his marriage settlement deed, was entitled to the £600 upon Sarah's decease and that Thomas desired to sell the £600 and had applied to Reverend Mungo Henry Waller who had agreed to the purchase. Thomas had agreed to accept £400, which Mungo had agreed to pay to him. The other parties to the deed had agreed to ratify and confirm the purchase and to relinquish to Mungo all their right, title and claim in default of an appointment by Sarah, or in case of the decease of any or all of her children in her lifetime, or in case Sarah should execute her power of appointment so as to otherwise disappoint Thomas and Eleanora Anne or their issue of the £600 or of any part thereof. The indenture witnessed that, upon execution of the agreement and in consideration of the £400 paid by Mungo to Thomas Potterton, and of £1 apiece paid to Eleanora Anne Potterton, Sarah (Gerrard) Hinds, Martha Hinds, John Hinds, Rebecca (Gerrard) Hinds, John and Catherine (Gerrard) Small and Anne (Gerrard) Gibney, Thomas and Eleanora Potterton, Sarah, Martha and John Hinds, did grant, bargain and assign, and Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small, and Anne Gibney confirmed unto Mungo H. Waller, his executors, administrators and assigns, the principal sum of £600, and reciting that by deed and Memorial, Rebecca Hinds, John and Catherine Small and Anne Gibney did assign to Thomas Hinds as trustee, his executors, administrators and assigns, a judgment. It was thereby declared that the £600 was invested with Thomas Hinds in trust as to £600 and the interest thereof from the death of Sarah Hinds for Mungo H. Waller and the interest due and to grow due on the fact of the judgment in trust for Sarah Hinds, her executors, administrators and assigns for life. And after her decease, as to the monies secured by the judgment above, £600 for the person or persons whom Sarah should appoint.
