John Cowen1

(Neighbor) Land Transfer22 August 1734John Cowen was described as a neighbor in Stoughton when Nicholas Bolton, labourer, of Bridgewater in the County of Plymouth in New England, signed a deed agreement on 22 August 1734 to sell land in Dorchester to David Leach, yeoman, of Kingston, Plymouth County for the sum of twenty pounds current money of New England. The deed identified the land as his ninth part of all the lands that his father died seized of in the township of Dorchester in the County of Suffolk, both divided and undivided -- except one lot of land containing thirty-three acres lying in Stoughton, in the County of Suffolk, beside the lot of John Cowen. Nicholas signed his mark, sealed and delivered the document in the presence of Daniel Johnson and Mary Perkins, and Isaac Johnson, a Justice of the Peace, verified that Nicholas had personally appeared before him and acknowledged the instrument to be his act and deed. The document was recorded in Suffolk County, on 23 May 1734 by Samuel Gerrish, Registrar.

Although the Dorchester land sold and the Stoughton land retained in the deed were not described, both pieces were very likely part of the land laid out previously to the right of Nicholas' grandfather, Nicholas Boulton the Immigrant, in the Twenty-Five Divisions of Land late in the township of Dorchester and now in the township of Stoughton. When their grandfather died in 1683, their father, John Bolton, inherited the land, and when he died in December of 1721, the remaining Dorchester/Stoughton land was passed on to Nicholas and his siblings, each receiving a one-ninth part.1

Israel Cowing1

Marriage*23 January 1723/24He married Lydia Balch on 23 January 1723/24 in Scituate, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2,3
Research Notes*The information presented in the Hooper Genealogy may not be correct. What we have learned so far is that a daughter named Sarah Cowing was born in Scituate to a father named Israel Cowing on 21 Dec 1717 and that a Sarah Cowing, daughter of an Israel Cowing, died in Scituate on 5 Jan 1718. No other Sarahs were found in the Scituate records and, of course, the Sarah who died may not have been the same Sarah who was born the month before. Six years after the death of the daughter Sarah, Israel Cowing and Lydia Balch were married in Scituate in 1723/4. John Hooper did, in fact, marry a Sarah in Bridgewater in 1746. She was identified as Sarah Cowing in Mitchell's Bridgewater History in both the Hooper and Cowing sections and as Sarah Carver in the Bridgewater vital records under Hooper. Just to confuse things further, their marriage was not included in the Bridgewater vital records book under either Cowing or Carver.1,4,5,3,6,7

Sarah Cowing1,2,3

b. 21 December 1717, d. 15 July 1755
Father*Israel Cowing4
Mother*Lydia Balch5
Birth*21 December 1717Sarah Cowing was born on 21 December 1717 in Scituate, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2,1,3
Marriage*1 December 1746She married John Hooper, son of John Hooper and Elizabeth Packard, on 1 December 1746 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).5,6
(Daughter) Research NotesThe information presented in the Hooper Genealogy may not be correct. What we have learned so far is that a daughter named Sarah Cowing was born in Scituate to a father named Israel Cowing on 21 Dec 1717 and that a Sarah Cowing, daughter of an Israel Cowing, died in Scituate on 5 Jan 1718. No other Sarahs were found in the Scituate records and, of course, the Sarah who died may not have been the same Sarah who was born the month before. Six years after the death of the daughter Sarah, Israel Cowing and Lydia Balch were married in Scituate in 1723/4. John Hooper did, in fact, marry a Sarah in Bridgewater in 1746. She was identified as Sarah Cowing in Mitchell's Bridgewater History in both the Hooper and Cowing sections and as Sarah Carver in the Bridgewater vital records under Hooper. Just to confuse things further, their marriage was not included in the Bridgewater vital records book under either Cowing or Carver.4,2,7,8,3,9
(Wife) Death7 May 1750Sarah became a widow when John Hooper died on 7 May 1750. He was only 24 years old.5,10
Death*15 July 1755She died on 15 July 1755 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), at age 37.5,11
