James Savage



A genealogical dictionary of our early colonists. Every volume shows three generations of those who came before 1692. Although more than a century has elapsed since the publication of this monumental work, it remains the standard to our day. We do not mean that new information has not been unearthed or that the work is free from errors, but Savage had just the peculiar qualifications necessary. He was so persistent in gathering data and so conservative in his use of them, that a statement made on his authority bears great weight. This work has the whole of New England for its field. This is volume 1, covering the surnames K - R.

As they scatt. so much, I give the places of resid. of most of the eleven s.

Ano. JOSEPH, call. jr. was at Hadley in 1678, old eno. to take o. of fidel. in Feb. 1679.

Mary, wid. of Andrew Lyon, on 17 Aug. 1712, nh. must be a mistake for; 10 Oct. and this was less than eight wks. aft. d. of first w.; and had David, 28 Sept. 1715; and Benjamin, 26 Sept. 1717; and d. a. 1721.

NATHANIEL, Farmington 1653, prob. br. of Joseph, had been one of the sett. at Hartford 1640, tho. not orig. propr. had, w. Elizabeth but no ch. and d. aft. short resid. at F. From his will of 4 June 1657, giv. all his ho. and lds. at F. to w. for life, and aft. to his br. John K. and two m. sis. all dwel. in O. E. and order, that br. and sis. shall pay cous. i. e. neph. Joseph╒s three ch. £6. &c. my corresp. infer. as most sound. he might, that the fam. had an Eng. origin, rather than a Scotch one. This would correct the suggest. in Geneal. Reg. XII. 199, repeat. in XIV. 126. Even without inq. as to first com. we kn. that within the bounds of N. E. at the date of that will there could not be one Scottish family in two thousand. However, in the same Vol. XIV. 377, a more reasona. tradit. is offer. that the fam. was from Isle of Wight.  NATHANIEL, Hadley, s. of Joseph of the same, m. 28 June 1692, Sarah, d. of Samuel Boltwood, had Nathaniel, b. 22 Sept. 1693; Eleazer, 31 May 1695; Ezekiel, 15 Apr. 1697; Samuel, 4 Apr. 1699; Sarah, 12 Mar. 1701; Abigail, 19 Mar. 1703; Mary, 9 Mar. 1706; Ephraim, 2 Aug. 1709; and perhaps Experience; rem. to Amherst, and d. 30 Oct. 1750.

He m. 1679, Sarah Root of Westfield, had John, b. 1680; and Thomas, 1681; nh. both d. at H. unm. over 70 yrs. of age; and Sarah, 1684. The elder s.

Twenty of this name had, in 1829, been gr. at the N. E. coll. Large acco. of the descend. of Silas, fifth s. of Stephen bef. ment. wh. was the fifth s. of Joseph the first, may be seen in Geneal. Reg. XII. 202-6.

KEMPTON, EPHRAIM, Scituate, perhaps br. of Manasseh, is includ. in the list of those able to bear arms, 1643, with Ephraim jr. but his name is eras. bec. no doubt, he was too old or infirm, and he d. a May 1645.

HENRY, Lancaster, s. of William, b. a. 1632, brot. prob. by his f. to Hingham, m. 2 Nov. 1654, Elizabeth d. of John White, had Henry, b. 1658; William, 1659; Joseph, 1669; and prob. other ch. freem. 1668; but in 1676, aft. his w. (a sis. of famous Mary Rowlandson, the w. of the min.) with the two last nam. ch. were k. by the Ind. 10 Feb. at the assault (in wh. Mrs. R. as she has relat. was tak.) he m. 18 Apr. 1676, Elizabeth how at Charlestown, went to Marlborough, and there spent the rest of his days, was a capt. and his depon. against Andros, 27 Dec. 1689, with Thomas How, is giv. in Revo. in N. E. Justif. 35. See Willard's Hist. of Lancaster, 27, 8, and 38. WILLIAM, Hingham 1637, of Sudbury a. 1641, rem. to Lancaster, freem. 1647; in his old age m. sec. w. 16 May 1664, Rebecca, wid. of Thomas Josselyn, and d. 14 July 1670, leav. William, and Henry, bef. ment. His will of 26 July 1669 adds nothing to our acquaint. with his fam. WILLIAM, Sudbury, eldest s. prob. of the preced. by wh. he was, perhaps, left in Eng. came in the Confidence from Southampton 1638, call. of Ashmore, with Edmund, bef. ment. wh. may have been uncle or br. rem. to Marlborough, freem. 1666; by w. Jane had Mary, b. at S. 4 May 1667; Sarah, 23 Jan. 1669; and Hannah, 8 Jan. 1671; was an ens. d. at Marlborough, 4 Jan. 1684. I suppose the name is mispr. Kerby in Geneal. Reg. VIII. 241.


KESKEYS, HENRY, Boston, by w. Ruth had Henry, b. 3 May 1656.


KETCHAM, EDWARD, Ipswich 1635, freem. 9 Mar. 1637, may reasona. be thot. progenit. of all of the name, in our country and therefore I regret the more that we are ign. of the circumstances of his migrat. and subseq. resid. By conject. it seems to me, that EDWARD of Stratford, wh. d. bef. 1678, was his s. whose d. Rebecca m. 14 Feb. 1678, Thomas Taylor of Norwalk. An Edward E. m. Mary, d. of Richard Harcutt, but prob. he was of L. I. yet may have been the Stratford man, wh. in his will of June 1655 names three ds. Mary, Hannah, and Esther. HENRY, Ipswich 1638, perhaps s. of the preced. JOHN, Ipswich 1648, prob. s. of Edward, rem. to that pt. of L. I. call. Setauket, now Brookhaven, constable, stood up for the jurisdict. of Conn. was honor. 1662, with a commiss. to make his neighb. swear, and rep. 1664. In 1668 he rem. to Newtown, there was a man of influence to his d. 1697. Riker, 89. JOSEPH, Norwalk 1672, possib. s. of the preced. or gr.s. of Edward, m. 3 Apr. 1679, Mercy, d. of deac. Henry Lindall of New Haven, had Nathaniel, b. 23 Jan. 1680; and Sarah, 19 Feb. 1672; was in town serv. 1701. SAMUEL, Newtown, L. I. 1655, prob. br. of John, was of Setauket, freem. of Conn. 1664, and with Edward, wh. may, also, have been br. at Huntington, 1672.


KETTLE, JAMES, Salem, s. of the first John, by w. Elizabeth had John, and Nathaniel, tw. b. 9 Dec. 1689, of wh. John, prob. d. soon; James, 27 Dec. 1691; Elizabeth 19 Jan. 1694; and John, again, 3 July 1696; JOHN, Gloucester, was in 1641, then a minor, charg. for breach of Sabbath & c.; by w. Elizabeth d. of the first William Allen of Salem, had John, b. 1654; William, 1656; Elizabeth b. 15 Feb. 1658; Mary, 5 Mar. 1660; Samuel, 2 Apr. 1662; and James, 20 Mar. 1665. He rem. and d. at Salem 12 Oct. 1685. Prob. from him is deriv. the name Kettle Cove at the adjoin. town of Manchester. JOHN, Charlestown, eldest s. of Richard of the same, was, perhaps, of Portsmouth 1663. He m. first, Sarah, d. of Edmund Goodenow, had John (wh. m. 11 Sept. 1688, Abigail, d. of Richard Austin, and d. at C. 17 Mar. 1691, aged 30); Sarah, b. in Sudbury, 8 Mar. 1663; and Joseph. He had a sec. w. Mr. Wyman says, Elizabeth d. of Samuel Ward the sec. wh. was carr. away from Lancaster in 1676, says Frothingham, 82; and by her had only Jonathan, b. at L. 24 Nov. 1670. JONATHAN, Charlestown 1677, youngest br. of the preced. m. 30 Mar. 1676, Abigail, d. of James Convers, wh. d. 25 Jan. 1691, aged 33, had Jonathan, b. 1677, wh. d. soon, and he d. 18 Dec. 1720. His other ch. Ann, b. 1679; Jonathan. 1681; and Abigail, 1684, were bapt. 29 Mar. 1685, when he join. to the ch.; and he had aft. James, 1686; and David, 1689, d. the same yr. JOSEPH, Charlestown, elder br. of the preced. freem. 1670, m. 5 July 1665, Hannah, d. of William Frothingham, had Hannah, wh. d. 26 June 1666; Hannah, again, d. 5 Sept. 1669; Richard, bapt. 1 May 1670; Esther, 29 Jan. 1671, d. 25 May 1678; Hannah, 27 Oct. 1672, d. young; Joseph, 31 Jan. 1675; Elizabeth 18 Mar. 1677, Esther, again, 13 Feb. 1679; William, 6 Feb. 1681; Mary, 25 Mar. 1683; Benjamin, 7 Sept. 1684; Rebecca, 7 Jan. 1687; and Hannah, again, 7 July 1689. His s. Richard d. 7 Dec. 1690; and his w. d. 15 Sept. 1693; he was chos. deac. 1695; m. for sec. w. Dorothy, wid. of Thomas Hett, wh. d. 11 Dec. 1710, in her 60th yr. and he d. 5 Apr. 1711. NATHANIEL, Charlestown, br. of the preced. by first w. Hannah, m. 13 June 1669, wh. d. 19 Nov. 1670, had only Nathaniel; m. 30 Oct. 1672, Hannah, d. of James Eidder, both unit. with the ch. 22 Mar. 1686, and on 29 of same had bapt. Nathaniel, James, Samuel, Hannah, and Sarah; Rebecca, 30 Jan. 1687; Rachel, b. 10,bapt. 14 Apr. 1689; Union, 15 Mar. 1691; and Richard, 10 Dec. 1693. He had three others, wh. d. bef. bapt. was one of the constables, 1690, and d. 1723. PETER, came in the Abigail, 1635, aged 10, from London; but who can tell, whether he grew to manhood, where he liv. wh. he m. or when he d. ? RICHARD, Charlestown 1633, butcher, freem. 4 Mar. 1635, by w. Esther, d. of Samuel Ward, had Hannah, bapt. 29 Oct. 1637, m. 21 Jan. 1657, John Call; John, b. 6, bapt.8 Dec. 1639; Joseph, 15, bapt. 21 Feb. 1641; Samuel, 19 Nov. 1642; Nathaniel, 11 Oct. 1644; Jonathan, 1646. Perhaps we may doubt the ch. rec. of Budington, 247, of the date, 25 July 1633, giv. the. adm. of "Richard Kettle and Esther his w." as a modern interpolat. in its latter clause, bec. the Boston ch. rec. of 26 Jan. 1634 has this entry, "Esther Ward, our br. Atherton Hough's maid serv." for evid. of her adm. and the dism. on 17 July 1642 reads, "Our sis. Esther Ward, now w. to Richard Kettle of Charlestown hath letter of recommenda. gr. unto her to the ch. at C." Possib. he had two ws. nam. Esther, hut it is less prob. than that the Charlestown ch. rec. was enrich. with a postlimin. addit. It must always be rememb. that we have not orig. ch. rec. of early yrs. in either Boston or Charlestown ch. but only copies, made prob. betw. 1650 and 1670, of both. He was usually call. serg. and d. 28 June 1681, aged 71. Esther, his w. d. 2 or 5 July 1679. ROBERT, Gloucester 1653, perhaps br. of John, wh. was three yrs. older.

His wid. d. 5 June 1710, aged 62 yrs.


KEY, JOHN, Dover, had James, tak. a. 1690 by the Ind. and soon k. Magn. VII. 69. But he and ano. John, call. jr. perhaps his s. were prison. from Piscataqua, at Quebec, 1695.

PETER, Sudbury, perhaps s. of Robert, by w. Elizabeth had, prob. John, b. 1664, wh. was one of the fanned. of the ch. at Shrewsbury; and, perhaps. others, bef. or aft. Esther, 12 Feb. 1668.

Sarah had Sarah, b. 26 May 1633; Rebecca, 17 Mar. 1638; Mary, 17 June 1639, d. soon; Mary, again, Feb. 1642, d. soon; Elias, 20 May 1643, bef. ment. rem. to Newbury, there had Mary, again, 16 June 1645, may have ret. to Watertown, perhaps had Peter, and others; and he d. 16 July 1647. His wid. m. Nov. 1658, John Gage; Mary m. 16 Feb. 1664, Benjamin Cady of Andover. SOLOMON, Newbury, m. 2 Oct. 1653, Frances Grant, had Hannah, b. 12 Sept. 1654; Sarah, 24 Aug. 1656; Mary, 26 Sept. 1658; Jane, 20 Oct. 1650; and Judith, 16 Sept. 1662; rem. to Chelmsford, there he had Solomon, bapt. 25 June 1665; and was tythingman 1679. His d. Jane m. 17 May 1680, Samuel Cleveland. His gr.s. Solomon was disting. by personal courage, as is seen at Lovewell's fight, in Hoyt's Antiq. Researches, 218, 274; and he was k. 8 Sept. 1755, when the Fr. and Ind. under Baron Dieskau were defeat. Five of this name had, in 1826, been gr. at Dart. Sometimes it was writ. as sound. Kies.


KEYSAN, or KEZAN, JOHN, Haverhill, m. Hannah, a. of John Davis of Dover, but date, or other partic. is unkn.

Abigail, d. of William Ager of the same, had Abigail, b. 4 Jan. 1659; Arthur, 6 Jan. 1661; William, wh. d. 14 Sept. 1661; and, perhaps, tw. Mary; tho. she is not on town rec. yet the rec. of ch. has "Mary, William, Abigail, wh. d. 3 Oct. 1662, and Arthur, childr. of Abigail Kippins, bapt. 13 Apr. 1662;" but, perhaps, the name of this last ch. may be on the town rec. Elizabeth Other ch. were Elizabeth 12 May 1662, Joseph, also on both rec. the town for b. mark. 23 Feb. but not the yr. and the ch. for bapt. giv. 23 May 1666; and the same has Hannah, 23 Aug. 1668, while that of the town has among b. Hannah, 28 June 1669; Sarah, 31 May 1670; and Jerusha, 19 Apr. 1672. Errors are easi. found in rec. of the elder days; but it is not necessary in this case to charge wrong on either town or ch. He prob. d. early in 1685, for his inv. is of 29 June. EDWARD, Boston 1645, a sawyer, liv. at Muddy riv. had Reuben, bapt. 30 June 1653; and Elizabeth b. 27 Jan. bapt. 4 Mar. 1655, both at Roxbury, in right of their mo.

Joshua; Rebecca, 1 May 1657; Edward; and, perhaps, Hannah. His wid. Grizzle had admin. 15 Aug. 1661. One Rachel K. d. at Dorchester 16 July 1657.

He d. 3 Apr. 1735, and tradit. with its aptness to exagger. made him 97; but, in 1693, he calls hims. a. "48 yrs." Perhaps he was s. of the preced. or of the foll. HENRY, Dorchester, tailor, freem. 18 May 1642, ar. co. 1644, d. 10 July or Aug. 1661. JAMES, Dorchester, s. of Edward, rem. to Cambridge, by w.
