Deliverance Ames1

b. 6 December 1653
Father*William Ames1,2,3 d. 1654
Mother*Hannah ______1,3 d. 31 Jan 1702/3
Birth*6 December 1653Deliverance Ames was born on 6 December 1653 in Braintree, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1,2
Marriage*circa 1675She married Isaac Leonard, son of Solomon Leonard and Sarah Chandler, circa 1675 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony.3,4
(Mother-Possible) Research OpinionConsidering all the "coincidences" which connect Bridgewater William Leonard's activities with the Bridgewater Leonards (especially if, as this researcher believes, coincidence is truly "the messenger of truth") it is suggested at this point in our research that William Leonard of Bridgewater was a descendant of Solomon Leonard of Bridgewater. Solomon's 4th son Isaac Leonard (c1650-c1717) and his wife Deliverance Ames are the strongest and sadly, through a process of elimination, the only candidates currently being considered as William's parents.5,6
(Grantor's Wife) Land RecordsIsaac Leonard of Bridgewater and his wife Deliverance sold land with dwelling and barn in Bridgewater to Samuel Chandler, also of Bridgewater. Their transaction was dated 29 February 1705/6, but likely should have been dated either 28 February or 01 March of that year.7
Residence*27 March 1717Her husband Isaac Leonard owned land in Mendon and Worcester and was of Bridgewater when he transferred Worcester land, his wife Deliverance consenting, on 27 March 1717. On 5 April 1717, their son Benjamin Leonard attested he saw Isaac sign the deed which was recorded on 10 December 1717.7
Research Notes* No Plymouth County probate or land records were found to connect Deliverance as their probable daughter.7

John Ames

d. circa 1698
Father*Richard Ames1
Immigration1635It is believed that Thomas Hayward, who came from Aylsford, Kent County, England, and John Ames both arrived in America in 1635 on the ship Hercules and settled first in Duxbury, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. Both men were early proprietors in Bridgewater, also in Plymouth County. John's brother William Ames may also have arrived on the same ship, settling in Braintree, Norfolk County, Massachusetts as early as 1640.2,3
Marriage*1645He married Elizabeth Hayward, who was probably a sister of Thomas Hayward, in 1645 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony).1
(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656John Ames 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. John Ames was among those few relocating from Duxbury to make his home in 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.

(Brother-Possible) Relationship NoteSarah Ames's family has not yet been determined. We wonder, though, if she may have been a relative, perhaps a sister, of brothers William and John Ames and William Ames. The Ames and Hayward men, and possibly their sisters and other family members, arrived in New England together on the same ship and there is evidence that the families interacted in both Duxbury and Bridgewater after arriving in America. Additionally, Elizabeth Hayward, the "probable sister" of Sarah's husband Thomas Hayward Esq. married John Ames, one of the Ames brothers who sailed from England with the Thomas Hayward family.
(Uncle) Relationship NoteIn Bridgewater, John, the son of William Ames was known as John Jr., likely to distinguish him from his uncle John Ames who may also have become his guardian after William's death. John Jr. was his Uncle John's heir.
No Issue*John and Elizabeth had no children.1
Estate*He left a large estate which he gave by deeds to his nephew John, "son of his brother William of Braintree, and to the sons of his said nephew."1
Death*circa 1698He died circa 1698.1

Sarah Ames1

Marriage*She married Thomas Hayward Esq., son of Thomas Hayward and Mehetible Waldo.1
Relationship Note*Sarah's family has not yet been determined. We wonder, though, if she may have been a relative, perhaps a sister, of brothers John Ames and William Ames. The Ames and Hayward men, and possibly their sisters and other family members, arrived in New England together on the same ship and there is evidence that the families interacted in both Duxbury and Bridgewater after arriving in America. Additionally, Elizabeth Hayward, the "probable sister" of Sarah's husband Thomas Hayward Esq. married John Ames, one of the Ames brothers who sailed from England with the Thomas Hayward family.
(Wife) Death15 August 1698Sarah became a widow when Thomas Hayward Esq. died on 15 August 1698.1,2
No Issue*Sarah and Thomas Hayward Esq. had no children, at least none that out lived their parents.1
