John O. Webster

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.1
Research Notes*1806 A John 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.

Jacob Wendell1

b. 5 August 1691
Father*Johannes Wendell2 b. 2 Feb 1649, d. 1691
Mother*Elizabeth Staes2
Baptism*5 August 1691Jacob Wendell was baptized on 5 August 1691 in Albany County, New York. He was the ninth and last child of his father by his second wife.2
Education*Jacob Wendell was the first Wendell to move to New England when, as a youth, he moved to Boston to receive a business education in the counting-house of John Mico, a well known Boston merchant of the time.2
Occupation*Upon the completion of his education, Jacob entered into business on his own, accumulated a handsome estate and became one of the most prominent citizens of Boston during his day.2
Marriage*12 August 1714He married Sarah Oliver, daughter of Dr. James Oliver and Mercy Bradstreet, on 12 August 1714 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2
Name VariationBecause of his status in the community, he was also known as the Honorable Colonel Jacob Wendell.1
Residence*Jacob and Sarah Wendell lived at the corner of School and Common (the present Tremont) Streets, Boston, where they raised their twelve children, four sons and eight daughters.1
(Executor) Will25 March 1747Jacob Wendell Esq. was named as an Executor of the estate and Trustee of the Trust directed by the will of the Reverend Benjamin Colman dated 25 March 1747 in Boston. Describing them as his honored friends, Benjamin's will appointed Benjamin Colman, Jacob Wendell Esq., Deacon John Phillips Esq. and Thomas Hancock Executors of the estate and of the Trust that was to be funded, after the just payment of his debts and legacies, with his bonds, mortgages and monies, their yearly income, his house, and the proceeds from the sale of his personal estate, together with his little silver plate and household goods. The will directed the Trustees, relying on their love and goodness, to accept the appointment for the sake of his poor, helpless grandson John Dennie. It described, in some detail and with conditions, his instructions on how his grandson was to be raised to manhood.3
(Trustee) TrustJacob Wendell Esq. was one of four Executors and Trustees named in the will of the Reverend Benjamin Colman, which directed that a Trust for his grandson John Dennie be created. He ordered that the residue of his library be sold and the proceeds, together with his little silver plate and household goods, be added to the bonds, mortgages and monies he left, and that after the just payment of debts and legacies, the yearly income of the remaining personal estate, together with his house in Brattle Street, Boston, his only real property, be used to fund the Trust. He appointed his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman and honored friends Jacob Wendell Esq., John Phillips Esq. and Thomas Hancock as Executors of both his estate and the Trust, relying on their love and goodness to accept the appointment for the sake of his poor, helpless grandson, for his custodial and desired, both worldly and spiritual good. It described, in some detail and with conditions, his instructions on how his grandson was to be raised to manhood.

In order that they might achieve that end, Colman empowered his Executors and Trustees, according to their best judgment, to rent, demand and receive rent, defend his title and property, to let out monies upon bond and to demand, receive, sue for, and recover monies due upon bond or mortgage, to also make necessary repairs and defray every arising charge. Most especially, though, he entrusted them to care for the board, schooling and education of his beloved grandson; to bring him up to learning or to put him to trade or merchandise, as they shall judge most fitting and convenient. And adding that if his nephew Benjamin Colman, or other of his honored Executors could board him and see to his profitable and pious instruction, or take him as their apprentice, it would be his wish.

The will informed his Executors and Trustees that, as a result of Articles of Indenture, or legal contract, agreed upon between himself and his son-in-law Albert Dennie, the natural father of his only branch and grandson, the boy's father had committed to Colman's care and ordering, all that concerned the education and support of his grandson John Dennie. The agreement gave Colman the right and responsibility to do for his grandson as a father for his child and empowered him to provide for him by will and testament as he was now doing. The will then committed John Dennie to the care and ordering of his worthy Trustees and Executors throughout his whole education in non age, requiring him to be respectful and subject to them as to his natural parent and guardian. If John should prove disrespectful, the will empowered his Trustees and Executors to withhold and deny to John, when he came of age, the £3,000 legacy bequeathed to him, and also to deny him from coming into possession of his dwelling house in Brattle Street. If John were to prove to be impolite or disrespectful, immoral or impious in the sober judgment and conscience of his Trustees and Executors, the will then ordered that his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman, who was also a Trustee, be put immediately into possession of Colman's house and land in Brattle Street, to remain unto him and the heirs of his body, and their heirs also lawfully begotten, forever. The will added that if John were to become or remain impolite or disrespectful, immoral or impious when he reached the age of 22 years, then the £3,000 bequeathed to him, together with all that should remain of his personal estate in the hands of his Executors and Trustees be equally divided among the surviving grandchildren, or their heirs, of his brother John Colman.

If, on the other hand, his grandson John Dennie, by the Grace of God, for which he fervently prayed for him, prove himself a sober and virtuous youth, in a judgment of charity, with his parental blessing on him, he confirmed to him the £3,000 legacy at the age of 22 years, and with great pleasure he bequeathed to John his dwelling house and land in Brattle Street, to remain unto him and to the heirs of his body lawfully begotten, forever. However, if John were to die without heirs, then the house and land should remain with his nephew Benjamin Colman of Boston, merchant, and to his son Benjamin and the heirs of their bodies lawfully begotten, forever.

The will ordered his Executors and Trustees, within the year following his death, to make the tender of his house in Brattle Street to his beloved nephew Benjamin Colman for him to occupy and dwell in, instructing him to keep it in good repair until the day of his grandson John reaching the full age of 22 years. His nephew Benjamin was ordered to pay rent of no more than £70 per annum, and that he then surrender it up to John Dennie, or legal heir of his body, or rent it of him or his as may be agreeable to him and them.3
