Joseph Thomson1

d. 1 July 1778
ChartsDescendants of Nicholas Boulton, The Immigrant
Father*Peter Thomson1
Mother*Rebecca Sturtevant2 d. 16 Oct 1792
Name-SpellingsHis surname in Bridgewater records was also spelled THOMPSON. At an earlier time the name was spelled TOMSON; then an h was added for THOMSON, as was the case most often in the Halifax records. THOMPSON became most common in the later 1700s.3,1
Marriage*7 February 1732/33He married Elizabeth Bolton, daughter of John Bolton and Ruth Hooper, on 7 February 1732/33 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).4,5,2,6
(Executor) Will27 May 1755Joseph, described as his well- beloved son-in-law, was named as sole Executor in the will of John Bolton dated 27 May 1755 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, in New England. Joseph's wife Elizabeth, Bolton's third daughter, and her younger sisters Hannah and Martha, as joint recipients, were bequeathed all the rest of their father's land, at home or abroad, his Purchase Right, his Right in Furnaces, and all his moveables of every sort and kind, other than the sixty acres he had already bequeathed to her two older sisters Susanna and Ruth, the £40 lawful money he bequeathed to her sister Hannah, and a silver tankard he bequeathed to the church, their heirs and assigns forever, to be equally divided among them, excepting that he directed that the girls' aunt, his sister Abigail (Bolton) Ripley, 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.7,8,9,1
(Executor) Probate28 July 1755Joseph Thompson, who had been named his sole Executor in the will of his father-in-law John Bolton, brought the will before John Cushing Esq., Judge of Probate, on 28 July 1755 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County. Two of the witnesses to the will, William Hudson and Seth Alden, made their oath that they, along with Jonathan Sprague, had seen John Bolton sign and seal his will, had subscribed as witnesses, and that he was then of sound mind. Judge Cushing stated that the will had been proved, approved and allowed and officially committed the power of administration to the deceased's son-in-law, Joseph Thompson of Halifax as Executor. Joseph was directed to faithfully execute the will and to administer the estate accordingly. Joseph was to make a true and perfect inventory of all and singular goods, chattels, rights and credits of the deceased and to exhibit it to the Registry of the Court for the County of Plymouth on or before the 28th day of the following October, and also to render a plain and true account of his administration, upon oath, within twelve months.7,8
Inventory*28 July 1755 On the same date of 28 July 1755, the Inventory of the real and personal estate that John Bolton had died seized of in Bridgewater, which had already been completed and appraised by William Hudson, Seth Alden and John Willis on 4 July 1755, was sworn to by Executor Joseph Thompson and filed with Judge John Cushing Esq.. Bolton's estate was valued at £1404,15,4 and was itemized along the same lines as his will. The forty acres of land given to his daughter Susanna was valued at £40; the twenty acres of land given by will to his daughter Ruth at £120; his apparel and bedding and all his indoor moveable estate at £58,3,9; his livestock and husbandry tools at £59,8,3; his home lands together with all his other lands, cedar swamps and meadows given by will to his three daughters, Elizabeth, Hannah and Martha at £1036,5,4; his eighth part of Titicut Furnace and his sixteenth part of the South Furnace at £62,13,4; and his interest in the stock of coal and the next profits at the furnace at £27,15,4.7,8
(Son-in-Law) Estate28 July 1755Joseph's wife Elizabeth and two of her sisters, Hannah and Martha, inherited most of the estate of their father John Bolton by his will.. The inventory of the estate, completed and appraised on 4 July 1755, provided an itemization of the inheritance value for each of Bolton's daughters, but no additional documents, or information regarding the final accounting or distribution of his estate, were found in his probate packet. Further research of land records and probates, particularly of his daughters under their married names of Cowing, Leach, Thomson and Willis, may yield a more complete story. We do know that his 4th daughter, Hannah Thomson, wife of Peter, died just one month after her father's death, and before his will was probated. We also know that his youngest daughter, Martha Willis, wife of Joab, was alive after the will was executed, and that his 2nd daughter Ruth Leach was living in 1771 when she was appointed Executrix of her husband's probate. Research will continue in our attempt to finalize the distribution of his estate to our satisfaction.7,8,10,9
Death*1 July 1778He died of smallpox on 1 July 1778.1,2
