William Buell

M, b. circa 1610, d. 23 November 1681
      William Buell, or Bewelle, or Beville, of Dorchester, Mass. and Windsor, Conn., was born at Chesterton, in Huntingdonshire, England; and emigrated to America about 1630. He settled first at Dorchester, MA and thence removed to Windsor, CT., about 1635, where he died.
     
     
      William Buell, Sr., was in the first land division in Windsor. In his Will he gave all his tools to his two sons, Samuel and Peter and gave his daughter, Mary Mills, 5 lbs. more than any of his other daughters.
     
     
      William gave his son Peter the land given him by Windsor, and half of his tools and the other half to Samuel.
     
     
      In October, 1650, John Hazel, Edward Smith and his wife, Obadiah Holmes, Joseph Terry and his wife, the wife of James Mann, William Buell and his wife, were indicted for continuing their meeting from house to house on the Lord's Day, contrary to the order of the court; but it does not appear that any punishment was inflicted.
     
     
      William Buell was one of those Religious enthusiasts known in Old and New England as Puritans, of Whom Russell wrote that they were "the most remarkable body of men the world has ever produced." They came out from Society and the Churches, became dissenters, non-conformists and recusants, inasmuch as they refused to subscribe longer to the tenets either of the Church of England or the Pope of Rome.
     
     
      The Puritans, as a body, went further back than Christ in the World's History for guidance in their worldly and Religious affairs. They adopted the Hebrew ethics and faith, inasmuch as they were men whose minds derived a peculiar character from the daily contemplation of superior beings and eternal interests.
     
     
      Not content with acknowledging in general an overruling Providence, they habitually ascribed every event to the will of the Supreme Being, for whose power nothing was to vast, for whose inspection nothing too minute. To know Him-to serve Him-to enjoy Him, was with them the great end of existence.
     
     
      They rejected with contempt the ceremonious homage which other sects substituted for the homage of the soul. On the rich and the eloquent-on nobles and priests, they looked down with disdain, for they esteemed themselves rich in a more precious treasure, and eloquent in a more sublime language. Novles by the right of an earlier creation, and Priests by the imposition of a Mightier Hand.
     
     
      THESE ARE THE MEN TO WHOM AMERICA OWES THE PRESERVATION OF CIVIL AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

     
     
      William Buell was a man of some considerable position in society-a man of property and of good personal character in a community in which almost all of that character soon became members of the Church. May not his previous connection with the Baptists furnish some explanation of this, after giving the particulars of William Buell's family.

Joseph Rogers1

M, b. before 1602, d. circa 1677
      Joseph Rogers married Hannah. Although she may not have been his only wife or even the mother of his children, the name Hannah was used repeatedly in subsequent generations, making her position as mother, grandmother, etc., very likely.
     
     
      Joseph came to Plymouth with his father on the Mayflower in 1620 when he was ten or twelve years old. Many branches of the Rogers family hold the tradition that Gov. Bradford took Joseph into his home after Thomas died in the winter of 1620/1. Joseph became a freeman in 1633 and received permission in 1635 to operate a ferry across the Jones River. In 1636 he was first noted as serving on a jury. Joseph was granted 30 acres of land in 1638 and became a constable of Duxbury in 1639. He and his brother John were each granted 50 acres of upland in 1640.
     
     
      Joseph seems to have moved to Eastham, then known as Nauset, around 1647. In June of that year he was made a lieutenant, with the duty of exercising the men at arms there. He apparently lived briefly in Sandwich in the early 1650's. He served on the council of war during 1658, was freed from his lieutenancy in 1661 but reestablished in 1664. In 1670 he was a selectman in Eastham.
     
     
      The original will of Joseph Rogers no longer exists. However a copy of same, recorded in the Plymouth Colony Record Book at the time of his death, designates his son Thomas Rogers a "whole and sole executor". At the time of his death, does not mention his daughter Mary, but reads as follows:
     
     
      "I Joseph Rogers senior: of Eastham of Good understanding and perfect memory being weake in body; and not knowing the the day of my departure out of this life, doe thinke meet to Leave this as my Last will and Testament.
     
     
      Impr: I Commend my soule to God that Gave it: whoe is my God, and father in Jesus Christ, and my body to the earth by decent buriall;
     
      firstly and concerning my temporall estate that God hath possessed me off; I doe make my son Thomas Rogers whole and sole executor which I will should be disposed of as followeth:
     
      Impr I doe Give unto my Loveing Son James Rogers and his heires Lawfully begotten of his body: or the next of kinn; my house and housing and Land with fences or the like appurtenances, that I now dwell in and Improve adjoining to my house be it more or lesse; as it is Recorded and bounded on the Towne book, I say I doe give it to him to his heires lawfully begotten of his body forever or the next kindred.
     
      Item I doe give to my sonnes John and James Rogers all my meadow ground that I bought of the Indians Francis and Josiah, lying att Pottammacutt and therabouts; I say I doe give and will it to them and theire heires forever equally to be divided.

      I doe give to my Daughter Elizabeth Higgens the wife of Jonathan Higgens six acrees of Land lying neare the Barly neck, by a swamp called Ceader Swamp; as it is recorded and bounded in the Towne book, I say I give this six acrees to her and her heires of her body for ever; shee nor they shall not sell hier farm it out, directly nor indirectly to any person whatsoever, execept in case of removall it shall be lawfull for my sonnes or theire heires to buy or purchase it;
     
      Item I give to Benjah Higgens my grandchild on condition hee live with mee until I die; I say I give to him and his heires, one third parte of all my upland and meadow att Paomett, purchased and unpurchased.
     
      Item it is my will that the remainder of my lands or marshes, both att the barly necke, Pochett Iland Paomett Billingsgate or elswher purchased or unpurchased not disposed of particularly in my will; I say it is my will that all those lands be equally divided betwixt my three sonnes Thomas, John and James Rogers; and the heires lawfully of theire bodyes for ever; noteing that my son Thomas his twenty acrees of upland that already hee hath in the barly necke ber parte of his division of my land in the barly necke;
     
      Item I doe give unto my daughter Hannah Rogers, if shee be not disposed of in marriage before my decease, and my wifes decease, then I day I doe give to her my bed and beding with all the furniture therto belonging or that shall belonge therto att our decease;
     
      Alsoe it is my will that shee shall have her choise of one cow before my cattle be distributed, and use of three acrees of Tillage ground, fenced in, with the arable ground of her bretheren in the barly necke if shee desires, it soe long as shee lives unmarryed;
     
      Item it is my will that Benjah Higgens shall have on of my cowes after mine and my wifes decease
     
      Item it is my will concerning my loveing wife Hannah Rogers that shee live in my house as longe as shee lives, and shall be comfortably maintained by my stocke and to have the use of all my hoshold stuffe, that shee needs as longe as shee lives for her comfort and that none of my household furniture or stocke be disposed of, as longe as shee lives, save onely Hannahs cowe.
     
      Item I will that ten shillings of my estate be disposed off for the use of the Church of Christ in Eastham as shall be Judged most nessesarie.
     
      Item I will that the remainder of my stocke estate houshold furniture that my wife shall leave att her decease not disposed of in my will before written; be equally divided between all my children; and Benjah Higgens to have an equall share with each of them; this is my last will and testament as witnes my hand and seale this 2nd of January 1677."
     
     
      Joseph's inventory was taken 15 Jan. 1677/8 and the will was probated 5 Mar. 1677/8. Depositions of Jonathan Sparrow and Samuel Berry show that the grandson called Benjah Higgens in the will was also know as Beriah Higgens. Son Thomas Rogers died before completing the settlement of the estate and so Capt. Sparrow and remaining son John Rogers were impowered to handle the settlement.
     


Joseph Rogers was born in Watford, Northhamptonshire. He is noted as being baptized on 23 January 1602/03.
Before coming to the New World, Rogers was part of the Leiden congregation in the Netherlands. He came to the Plymouth colony on the Mayflower, in the company of his father, Thomas Rogers. By 1639 he had moved to Duxbury; he is noted as requesting land in that area in 1638 and is named on a committee for the Duxbury highway repair in 1638/39. He is mentioned as "of Duxborrow" in the records of a 1646 land sale. Rogers probably moved very soon after this mention, as he is named lieutenant of Nauset (later Eastham) in 1647. In Eastham, he might have taken up residence with Beriah Higgens, as in his will he mentions that he "lived with him a Greate while." Rogers lived in Eastham until his death.
Although his father did not survive the first winter, Joseph's brother John took his chances in the New World and at an unknown date joined his brother in Plymouth. It is uncertain whether Rogers' sisters Elizabeth and Margaret ever came to the colony; they were listed as living in Leiden in 1622.
Rogers married a woman named Hannah, whose surname is unknown. They had four sons and four daughters: Sarah (1633), Joseph (1635), Thomas, Elizabeth (1639), John (1642), Mary (1644), James, (1648), and Hannah (1652.) Joseph seems to have had a clean bill of health concerning his marriage; he is not mentioned in any case for any sort of sexual offence. His home life was not one of unmarred happiness, though. Sarah died in infancy, and Joseph predeceased his father. Roger's eldest son had suffered from "a most deadly fall" on 25 December 1660, and lingered for two days before dying. John Hawes was indicted for "violently and by force of armes" killing Rogers Jr. (The two might have been wrestling when Rogers Jr. suffered his fatal injury.) Hawes was found not guilty of the crime on 5 March 1660/61.
Had Rogers lived longer, he would have seen his family greatly diminished. Thomas, the second son and the executor of Rogers' will, died a few months after his father, along with the youngest son James. By October of 1678, only John Rogers was left to administer his father's estate.
In the first land division in 1623, Rogers received two acres, on "the South side of the brooke to the baywards." He added cattle to his goods in 1627, sharing a heifer "of the last yeare" from the "Greate white back cow that was brought over in the Ann" with William Bradford, Thomas Cushman, William Latham, Mannasses Kempton and Julian Kempton, and the Morton family. Along with the cattle, Rogers shared 2 nanny goats.
Early on, Rogers tried his hand in the transportation business. A court record from 2 March 1635/36 states that he was granted permission to run a ferry over Jones River, which ran near his house. The charge was a penny per passenger.
Rogers may have possessed over 100 acres in Duxbury at one point, having been granted 60 acres of land in 1638 and an additional 50 in 1640. There are four known land deals involving him from the time of his arrival in Eastham. A 1658 purchase from the Potonumaquatt tribe totals six and one half acres. In 1662 Manasses Kempton sold Rogers 40 acres of upland in the area "Called the Barly necke…." In 1665 Rogers is mentioned as having rights to 100 acres of land that William Nicarson had illegally purchased from the natives. It is not known whether Joseph Rogers actually bought the land he was entitled to. The Plymouth court gave him liberty in 1670 to purchase land from Indians living near Eastham.
It is also not known exactly how much land Rogers held at his death. In his will he mentions holdings "at the barly necke, Pochett Iland Paomett Billingsgate or elsewhere purchased or unpurchased…." An inventory of his household comes to 56 pounds, 9 shillings, and 11 pence. Rogers, like many Cape Cod families, owned a fishing boat in his case, two " canooes."
Joseph Rogers was an upstanding citizen in the colony. He was a purchaser in 1626, and he is listed as a freeman in 1633. His reputation was untarnished by any criminal accusations, although he does appear as a plaintiff in a 1632/33 civil case. (Edward Doty had not carried through on a contract involving six pigs. Rogers received 4 bushels of corn in compensation.)
He also had a history of community involvement. While in Duxbury, he was sworn into the post of constable for 1640. On June 1, 1647, he was sworn in as lieutenant of Nauset (later Eastham) an office he held until 1661, when he was released. In 1658, he served on the Council of War. He was re-sworn into his lieutenant's office in 1664, and held it until his death. Rogers was also often involved in community land transactions, serving as a trustee over a piece of Duxbury land in October 1646. In 1664 Lieutenant "Josepth Rogers" is given authority to survey a piece of land from Bridgewater to the Bay line, along with Josias Cooke, Gyles Hopkins, Henry Sampson, and Experience Mitchell. In 1670, Rogers served as a selectman along with Nicholas Snow, Daniel Cole, and Josias Cooke.
He died between the 2nd and the 15th of January 1677/78, in Eastham, New Plymouth, a few weeks short of his seventy-fifth birthday.
