John Hall1

M, b. circa 1611, d. 23 July 1696
     COMMENTS:     Savage and Wyman suggest that this John Hall came from Coventry in England, but there is no evidence for this whatsoever. Banks offers St. Mary Whitechapel, London, as an origin for this man, but cites only "Banks Mss.," so not much weight should be put on this claim either, without further exploration [Topo Dict 102].
John Hall was admitted as an inhabitant of Charlestown in April 1633 [CHTR 91. He appeared in the lists of Charlestown inhabitants dated 9 January 1633/4 and January 1635/6 [CHTR 10, 15]. He signed his name to the town agreement which established the office of selectman, IO February 1634/5 [CHTR 13], and on I May 1637 he was warned about making encroachments on the common CHTR 281.
Both Savage and Pope muddled this John Hall and one or two others. Savage combined the records of this John Hall with those of a second man of the same name at -Charlestown, whereas Pope distributed the records of two John Halts and one Samuel Hall across two entries under the name of John Hall. Jacobus sorted out the confusion in a long note published in 1948 Brainerd Anc 142-431; the critical point is to watch the name Bethia as wife of John.
The gap of six years between the first record of Bethia as wife of John Hall (2 November 1632) and the first record of a baptism for a child (I 3 May 1638) is puzzling. The eldest son, Samuel, was very likely born during this period, say in 1636, but this still leaves a sizable gap; and if John and Bethia Hall were residing in Charlestown throughout this period, why wasn't a baptism for Samuel recorded? One possible solution derives from the problematic nature of the early Charlestown church records, which were recopied some years after the date of the events recorded. Savage demonstrated that the Charlestown church records have RICHARD KETTLE married to his wife ESTHER WARD some time before the marriage actually took place. The same may have happened with John and Bethia. If that is true John and Bethia may not have married until about 1636, and if she were from some place other than Charlestown, perhaps Samuel was baptized there, in a church whose records no longer exist. This proposed solution may also explain the gap of four years between John Hall's admission to Boston church and his admission as a freeman, for he may not yet have been twenty-one in 1630.
On 8 June 1655 concerning a "complaint made by John Hall, of Yarmouth, against Francis Baker, of the same town, for abusing Samuel Hall, his son, and ser[vant to the said Baker, by kicking of him and otherwise unreasonably striking of him, the Court have ordered, that the[ said Samuel Hall shall be and continue with his father until the next Court of elections" [PCR 3:83]; the controversy was ended when on 7 August 1655 the court ordered John Hall to pay Francis Baker ;E8 for the remainder of Samuel Hall's time [PCR 3:88].

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: Amos Otis treated his family in his survey of Barnstable families, in the course of which he described some of the lands held by John Hall at Barnstable and Yarmouth [Otis 1:450-56].

      He joined the First Church of Charlestown at its organization, July 30, 1630. In 1632 a majority of the members being on that side of the Charles river organized the First Church of Boston, among the number being John Hall and his wife Bethia. He had Lot No. 48 in 1633, and was admitted a freeman May 14, 1634. About 1640 he became a resident of Barnstable, and was on the list of those able to bear arms in 1643. In 1653 he was a resident of Yarmouth, in that part of the town later set off as Dennis. Also in 1653 he was listed as a Surveyor. His will is dated 15 July 1694, and proved 29 August 1696. He is buried on his farm."
