Widow Ellice1

d. before May 1658
Marriage*before 1620Her first husband was ______ Ellice. He died, probably in England soon after 1630, and her name was found in the records only as the P2.1
Marriage*before 1633She married second, as his first wife, Lambert Genery probably before 1633.1,2
Relationship Note*Among the earliest settlers of the town of Dedham in the Massachusetts Bay Colony were at least seven individuals who signed their own surnames as "ELLICE", thus distinguishing themselves from other unrelated "ELLIS" families in the Colony. John, Ann and Thomas ELLICE settled with their father Joseph ELLICE. Their mother, possibly also Ann, may have been with them. Richard and Joseph ELLICE settled with their widowed mother Ann ELLICE. These two ELLICE families interacted with each other in Dedham and it is suspected by this researcher that they were related. If Joseph's children and the widow Ann's children were cousins, for example, Ann's deceased husband may have been Joseph's brother. For several generations the ELLICE family maintained their identity through the spelling of their surname. By the beginning of the 18th century, however, those people copying or indexing an original document began to spell their name a variety of ways; Ellis, Elles, Eles, Elces, Allice, Allis were just a few. By the middle 1700s our ELLICE family had become ELLIS.3,1,4
Death*before May 1658She died before May 1658.1

(Assignee) Probate Agreement11 February 1741/42Ebenezer Ellis, representing both himself and Samuel Everett, participated in the discussion on 11 February 1741/42 to prepare and finalize an agreement between the heirs and assigns of John Hawes, late of Dedham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), yeoman, deceased. The probate document identified each of the parties to the agreement, and their relationships to the deceased, as:

James Heaton of Rutland in the County of Worcester, yeoman, on behalf of himself and on behalf of his wife Eliony (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of the deceased John Hawes.

James Heaton, again, on behalf of his brother Samuel Heaton of Hebron, in the County of Windham in the Colony of Connecticut, yeoman, and his wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes. James identified Samuel Heaton further by adding "alias Samuel Heaton, his brother, of Black River in the Jerseys in America, yeoman, and Sarah his wife, one of the children and co-heirs of the estate of John Hawes deceased."

Joseph Pratt of Dedham, yeoman, on behalf of himself and his wife Lydia (Hawes) Pratt, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes.

Ebenezer Ellis of Dedham, a wheelwright, on his own behalf and also on behalf of Samuel Everett. Samuel Everett was an heir of the deceased John Hawes as the son and only child of Mary (Hawes) Everett, late of Dedham, deceased, who had been the eldest daughter of the deceased John Hawes. Samuel Everett had assigned his share to Ebenezer Ellis

Hannah Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

Elizabeth Hawes of Dedham, spinster, one of the children and co-heirs of the deceased John Hawes, on her own behalf.

Grandson John Hawes on behalf of himself and his brothers and sisters. They were all identified as the children of John Hawes of Dedham, deceased, who had been a son of the deceased John Hawes. The other grandchildren, his brothers and sisters, were not named.

Daughter-in-Law Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes, widow of Samuel Hawes, late of Dedham, husbandman, deceased, on behalf of herself and her children. Her husband, the children's father, had been a son of the deceased John Hawes.

The agreement was signed by James Heaton, Joseph Pratt, Ebenezer Ellis, Hannah Hawes, Elizabeth Hawes, John Hawes and Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes. On 10 March 1741/42 in Boston, Joseph Pratt, Ebenezer Ellis, Hannah Hawes, Elizabeth Hawes and John Hawes acknowledged the instrument to be their voluntary act, and on 31 July 1742 in Boston, James Heaton and Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes made their acknowledgements.1
(Assignee) Estate and Land11 February 1742Under the 11 February 1742 agreement, Ebenezer Ellis and Joseph Pratt and his wife Lydia (Hawes) Pratt, received 11 acres and 8 rods of land belonging to the estate as it was situated, lying and being in Dedham in the Old Field, so called, as it is butted and bounded on the land of the widow Elizabeth (Warren) Hawes southerly, and on the land of Eleazer Fisher easterly and southeasterly and on common land in part northeasterly and on the brook northwesterly and on the land of the estate of John Hawes, deceased, on all other parts. Ebenezer Ellis and Joseph Pratt were to pay all the debts belonging to the estate plus £7 16s funeral charges. Ebenezer Ellis also received, to make up for his full share on behalf of the deceased's grandson Samuel Everett, 2.25 acres and 22 rods of land in what was called Old Field, butted and bounded on the land set off to pay the debts and funeral charges and described as lying southeasterly and southwesterly and on the land of the estate northwesterly, and on Hawes Hill northeasterly. Additionally, each of the heirs received a one-seventh part of 14 acres on Hawes Hill. The agreement then outlined how each of the seven parts of the 14 acres on Hawes Hill was to be divided. Joseph and Lydia (Hawes) Pratt had the first lot, adjoining his meadow; James and Eliony (Hawes) Heaton received the second lot; Samuel and Sarah (Hawes) Heaton received the third lot; Hannah Hawes, the fourth and Elizabeth Hawes, the fifth; grandson John Hawes, the sixth lot; and Ebenezer Ellis, the seventh lot adjoining Old Field. The lots were to be southeasterly and northwesterly and to be of unequal breadth at the southeasterly end, and also have convenient cart paths leading from the brook, to and over each of the lots.1
(Husband) Research NotesIn our attempt to determine why Ebenezer Ellis was the assignee of Samuel Everett, a grandson and heir of John Hawes of Dedham in 1742, Ebenezer's wife Elizabeth Barnard became a focus of our attention. We wondered if identifying her family could help us answer the question. From the vital record of their marriage in Dedham, we had learned that Ebenezer and Elizabeth were both residents of Dedham at that time. We also learned that very few Barnards were recorded in Dedham's vital records between 1650 and 1750. After researching several Massachusetts Barnard families, two Elizabeths emerged as potential candidates for Ebenezer's correct wife: Elizabeth Barnard of Boston and Elizabeth Barnard of Watertown. While we're not yet absolutely certain we've identified the right one, we've selected Elizabeth Barnard of Boston as the better choice for three reasons. Her uncle Matthew Barnard of Boston married into an established Dedham family when he married Deborah Fales in 1721 in Dedham, five years before Elizabeth's marriage to Ebenezer; no association with Dedham was found for the Watertown Barnard family; and one source actually identified, although with no supporting documentation, Elizabeth Barnard of Boston as Ebenezer's wife.1,10,11,12,13,14
Death*1776He may have been the Mr. Ebenezer Ellis who died of small pox in Dedham in 1776. His death was recorded at Dover and, if "our" Ebenezer, he would have been about 75 years of age.15
