Samuel Peirce

Residence1796Two individuals named Samuel Peirce appeared in The Boston Directory in 1796 on Charter Street, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. One was listed as a shipwright in the ship building category and the other as a baker in the food and drink category. It is possible they were Zilpah's family members.1

Samuel Peirce

d. 26 May 1802
Marriage*He may have married Zilpah __?__.
Residence*1796A third individual named Samuel Peirce appeared in The Boston Directory in 1796 on Fleet Street, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He was listed as a retailer in the commerce category. He, also, may have been one of Zilpah's family members, possibly even her father.1
Death*26 May 1802The death of an individual named Mr. Samuel Peirce was reported in the newspaper on 26 May 1802 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He was 63 years old.2
(CLUE Person) Residence2 May 1805An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce, and believed to be the same Zilpah Peirce who died in 1809, placed an advertisement dated 2 May 1805 in the Independent Chronicle newspaper of Boston. It ran on May 2, 13 and 27 and read: "Salt Rheum &c. cured. WIDOW ZILPAH PEIRCE has for Sale, Indian Salve and Wash, which has cured numbers of the Salt Rheum, feald head, sore legs, &c. Indian liquid for Worms; do. tooth ache; do. salves for agued breasts; burns; piles, &c. Innocent and cheap -- no cure, no pay. N.S. The Wash will heal any serusulous humour in the face, and any sore on horses or aminals (sic). Cambridge street, opposite Chamber's street. May 2". At this point in our research we are suspecting that she may have been the widow of Samuel Peirce who died on 26 May 1802 in Boston and are "hoping" to learn that they were relatives or possibly even parents of "our" Zilpah.3

Marriage*13 February 1803Zilpah Peirce married John Bolton (our Brick Wall Ancestor), son of John Bolton and Elizabeth Hayward, on 13 February 1803 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. They were married by the Reverend Samuel Stillman of the First and Second Baptist Churches in Boston.10,5,8,11
(CLUE? Identity) Residence1805An individual named Samuel Peirce appeared in The Boston Directory of 1805 on Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He was listed as a mariner, and at this time it is not known if he was the same Samuel Peirce listed in 1796 as a baker or the one listed that same year as a ship wright or neither.12
Religion*29 March 1805Zilpah Bolton and Nathaniel Everett, along with eight others which included George Briggs Cox, Peter Vallett, John Woodward, Lydia Sweetser, Sally Lovis, Mary Marnson, Ruth Thayer and Venus Sylvester, applied for membership in the Second Baptist Church in Boston at a Friday evening meeting on 29 March 1805. The applicants spoke "with regard to works of grace upon their souls and after a candid and full examination, they were unanimously received into the fellowship as Candidates for baptism."13
Religion31 March 1805Zilpah Bolton and Nathaniel Everett, along with several others including Thomas Ditson, John Hayden, George Briggs Cox, Simeon Blanchard, Francis Green, Peter Vallett, John Woodward, Mary Marnson, Ruth Thayer, Venus Sylvester, Kezia Booth, Lydia Leeds, Botsey Jones, Versan Adams, Zebudah Hayden, Martha Farrar, Betsey Mirth Horton, Catherine Thayer, Lydia Sweetser and Sally Lovis, were baptized and became members of the Second Baptist Church, Boston, on Sunday, 31 March 1805. In the baptismal records, the men and women were listed separately.14,15,2
(CLUE? Identity) Residence2 May 1805An individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce, and believed to be the same Zilpah Peirce who died in 1809, placed an advertisement dated 2 May 1805 in the Independent Chronicle newspaper of Boston. It ran on May 2, 13 and 27 and read: "Salt Rheum &c. cured. WIDOW ZILPAH PEIRCE has for Sale, Indian Salve and Wash, which has cured numbers of the Salt Rheum, feald head, sore legs, &c. Indian liquid for Worms; do. tooth ache; do. salves for agued breasts; burns; piles, &c. Innocent and cheap -- no cure, no pay. N.S. The Wash will heal any serusulous humour in the face, and any sore on horses or aminals (sic). Cambridge street, opposite Chamber's street. May 2". At this point in our research we are suspecting that she may have been the widow of Samuel Peirce who died on 26 May 1802 in Boston and are "hoping" to learn that they were relatives or possibly even parents of "our" Zilpah.16
(CLUE? Identity) 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.17
(CLUE? Identity) Research Notes1806John 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. Webster was the Webster John Bolton was in business with, he would be an excellent 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.17
(Mother) Research NotesZilpah and John Bolton's daughter was named Elizabeth Everett Brown. The name "Everett" has been and remains a puzzle to us. We have not found the name anywhere in John Bolton's family. After years of research, we have still found no evidence to indicate why "Everett" was Elizabeth Everett Bolton's middle name. We don't even know yet whether she received the name at birth, or if she or someone else added it to her name for a particular reason later. We do believe that "Everett" has a special significance that needs to be identified. Elizabeth named her first daughter Elizabeth Everett and her oldest son, James Ormond Brown, named his second son Everett. Our first clue to the "Everett" name was found just recently when we learned that Elizabeth's mother, Zilpah (Peirce) Bolton and a man named Nathaniel Everett both applied for membership in the Second Baptist Church in Boston at the same Friday evening meeting and were baptized together on the same Sunday just one year before Elizabeth was born. We obviously need to learn about this Nathaniel Everett and his family in order to determine if he may possibly be our link to the Everett name and maybe even to Zilpah's family and/or to Elizabeth's life between her mother's death in Boston in 1808 and Elizabeth's marriage in Milton, Norfolk County at age 17 in 1823.13,14
Religion1 May 1808 On 1 May 1808, Mrs. Zilpah Bolton was again listed as a Church member in the records of the Second Baptist Church.15,2
Death*1 October 1808Zilpah died on 1 October 1808 at age 26. Her death appeared in the records of the Second Baptist Church.18,19,2
(CLUE Identity?) Death17 November 1809Another individual named Zilpha (__?__) Peirce died in Boston on 17 Nov 1809 at the age of 49. The notice of her death in the Boston Mirror the following day read: "DIED. Yesterday afternoon, Mr. (sic) Zilpha Peirce, aged 49. Her funeral will proceed from Mr. Davisons's house, Salutation alley, tomorrow afternoon, 4 o'clock. Relations and friends are desired to attend without any further invitation."20,21

Alderman Isaac Penington1

d. December 1661
Occupation*Isaac was a sometime lieutenant of the Tower, Lord Mayor of London, and one of the judges who condemned King Charles I to death in 1649.1
Residence*He lived in London, England.1
Court Action*1660Isaac, who had not actually signed the king's death warrant, was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1660 for his role as a commissioner in the trial and execution of King Charles I in 1649.

Following the execution of King Charles I on 30 January 1649, the English monarchy was abolished. Instead of the monarchy, what became known as a Council of State was set-up with Oliver Cromwell as its first chairman. When Charles II returned to become King of England in 1660, those men who had participated in his father’s death warrant, and were still alive and had not already fled the country, whether they had actually signed the king's death warrant or not, were tried as regicides, or as murderers of a king. At the English Restoration in 1660, six Commissioners and four others were found guilty of regicide and executed; one was hanged and nine were hanged, drawn and quartered. In 1662 three more regicides were hanged, drawn and quartered, and some others were pardoned, while a further nineteen served life imprisonment. The three already dead at the time of the Restoration had their bodies desecrated.2,3,4
Death*December 1661He remained a prisoner in the Tower of London from his commitment in 1660 until he died there in December 1661.2,4
