far from the King's residence, and it is unlikely that John was one of

the select bodyguard(Yoeman) of 100 men chosen to guard the sovereign on 1485.

Notes for JOHN MERRILL:

John Merrill and his family came before or by 1636 when he received a house lot in Ipswich, surrendered when he moved to Newbury by 1638, soon after it's settlement in 1635 by Ipswich families.

     

Child of JOHN MERRILL and ANIS BISHOP is:

14.   i.    HANNAH7 MERRILL, b. 1630, England; d. 04 Apr 1662, Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.

 

 

13.  NATHANIEL6 *MERRILL (NATHANIEL5, JOHN4 *MERRELL, THE YOUNGER, JOHN3 *MERYELL, JOHN2, THOMAS1) was born 04 May 1601 in Wherstead, Suffolk, England, and died 16 Mar 1654/55 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.  He married SUSANNAH ....... 23 Sep 1633 in Wherstead, Suffolk, England, daughter of ........ UNKOWN and SUSANNA WOLTERTON.  She was born Abt. 1610 in Denham, Suffolk, England, and died 25 Jan 1672/73 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.

 

Notes for NATHANIEL *MERRILL:

Settled, Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts. 1638-9.  The newly found records show  that Nathaniel Merrill's daughter, Susanna, was not baptised until Dec 12, 1638 in Lawford, Essex, Co., England.  This tells us that Nathaniel had not left for America whith his family until late December  1638 or early 1639. In 1638 the English Government started restricting it's citizens from freely emigrating to the new continent with it's abundance of land for all, something unknown in England.  The fact that brother John arranged for a homesite of four Acres in Newbury for his unnamed "brother" would indicate that the brother was not there by 23 July 1638 but was arraiging to come. Ship records, the Hector, show that Nathaniel and John did arrive in Ipswich, Massachusetts. in 1635.  Nathaniel must have returned to England to get his wife and his four children and returned in 1638-39.

 

 From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge Massachusetts 1917-1928

 

Nathaniel(1) Merrill was one of the earliest settlers in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts in 1639  He was the ancestor of the vast majority of those who now bear the Merrill name in this country: it is believed, indeed, that less than one percent of the Merrills in America can trace their pedigree to any other emigrant ancestor.

 

Nathaniel Merrill and his older brother John were born in England.  The registers of Wherstead, a parish lying three miles south if Ipswich, in Suffolk County, England, contain the following entries:

 

1599, August 16.  John Merrell son of Nath! Merrell & Mary his wife

was baptised.

1601, May 4.        Nathanaell Merrell son of Nath! Merrell & his

wife Mary was baptised.

 

There are reasons for believing that these entries are the record of baptism of John and Nathaniel Merrill of Newbury. 

 

It is supposed that Nathaniel Merrill was married before leaving England.  No record is found of his marriage in AmeriCA  If the marriage took place here it was probabley at Ipswich, in the short time before

the settlement in Newbury.  His wife's name was Susanna.  Savage, in the "genealogical Dictionary of New England" (published in 1861), says that Nathaniel Merrill married Susanna Jordan.  In this he was no doubt following Coffin's "History of Newbury" (published in 1845), and the statement has been frequently copied. Ed note, Nathaniel Merrill did marry Stephen Jorden after Nathaniels death in 1655. 

 

Nathaniel was probably a farmer and is ancestor to all the Merrills in the U.S.A.. His brother John and wife had a daughter but no sons.

 

 

Notes for SUSANNAH .......:

Susannah ........, also known as Susannah Wolterton, was the wife of the emigrant, Nathaniel  Merrill. For many years she was thought to be the sister of Gregory Wolterton of Hartford, Connecticut. Later research shows that she probably is the daughter of Gregory's  wife, Susannah (Unknown) by a previous marriage.

 

From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge, Massachusetts 1917-1928

 

The conjecture has been advanced, and it has even been stated as a fact, that the wife of Nathaniel Merrill was Susanna Wilterton (or Wolterton.) Therefore until proven difference I will have Nathaniel's wife as Susanna Wolterton

 

After the death of Nathaniel Merrill his widow married Stephen Jordan (or Jourdain).  Nathaniel Merrill, son of Nathaniel and Susanna Merrill, gave a deed, under date of 16 Aug 1661, to Peter Godfrey of Newbury, in which the phrase occurs, "after the decease of my mother Susanna Jordan," and

out of this fact the error regarding the maiden name of Nathaniel's wife grew.

 

Gregory Wolterton(Wilterton) of Hartford was childless:  Susanna Merrill of Newbury was a widow with five sons and a daughter, most of them in their minority.  It would have been natural for Gregory Wilterton under these circumstances to write to his kinswoman in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and offer a home and modest fortune to one of the boys.  From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge, Massachusetts 1917-1928

Notes for NATHANIEL +MERRILL:

From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, CambrIdahoge, Massachusetts 1917-1928

 

Nathaniel(2) Merrill (Nathaniel(1)) spent his life in Newbury Massachusetts, but whether he was born in England, or in America after his father's migration, is not known.  He died 1 jan 1682/83.  In a "List of their names who have taken the oath of Allegiance at Newberry, 1678," (vol 30, p.56) his age is recorded as 40 years, while the age of his brother Abraham is given as 41 years. It is believed, however, that Nathaniel was

the oldest of the children, a belief based on the fact that he was named as executor of his father's will, and was therefore probabley of age in March, 1655.

 

Addendum 1996:Baptismal records show that Nathaniel was baptized on  25 Jan 1634 in Lawford, Essex Co., England.

16.  DEACON JOHN7 *MERRILL (NATHANIEL6, NATHANIEL5, JOHN4 *MERRELL, THE YOUNGER, JOHN3 *MERYELL, JOHN2, THOMAS1) was born Bef. 16 Feb 1635/36 in Lawford, Essex, England, and died 18 Jul 1712 in West Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut.  He married SARAH MARGARET *WATSON 23 Sep 1663 in Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut, daughter of JOHN *WATSON and MARGARET SMITH.  She was born 1641, and died Aft. 1714 in West Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut.

 

Notes for DEACON JOHN *MERRILL:

From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1917-1928

 

John(2) Merrill (Nathaniel(1) one of the older sons of Nathaniel went to Hartford, Connecticut before 1657, while still a minor and it is said was adopted by Gregory Wolterton.  Savage, in his "Genealogical Dictionary" said that Gregory Wolterton "had good estate, large tan works, and no children." Gregory Wolterton made his will 17 Jul 1674, and died soon after, leaving legacies to a number of persons, including relatives in Ipswich, England.  Savage adds: "Most of his estate was given to John Merrills, because he hand adopted him."  The same statement of adoption is repeated in the "Memorial History of Hartford County."

 

These facts lend plausibility to the theory that Gregory Wolterton was a brother of Susanna Merrill.  It was a long journey from Newbury to Hartford;  means of communication were meagre, and both communities were in their infancy.  It seems unlikely that John, as a very young man, would have made such a journey, seperating himself from a lifetime from home and kin, unless to make a home with other kin in the place where he went to live.

 

Addendum 1996:Baptismal records show that John was baptized on 16 February 1635/36 in Lawford, Essex, Co., England.

Notes for JESSE MERRILL:

        (a) James7 Merrill graduated at Dartmouth College in 1812, and was a

        prominent lawyer in New Berlin, Pa., and judge of the County Court. His

        four sons who lived to maturity served with distinction in the Civil War. One

        of them was Gen.Lewis8 Merrill, the genealogist. (See pages 13-16.)

 

        (b) Samuel7 Merrill studied for a year at Dartmouth, was a bookseller and

        publisher, and lived in Indianapolis. He was State Treasurer of Indiana

        1822-1834, president of the State Bank for ten years, and president of the

        Madison & Indianapolis Railway. When he first went to Indianapolis

        (1824), there being no other teacher, he taught a school which was opened

        in a Methodist church built of logs. (See "Early Reminiscences of

        Indianapolis," by John-H.-B.Nowland, pages 183-185.)

 

        (c) Jane8 (Merrill) Ketcham died at the age of 93. John-Lewis Ketcham

        was a lawyer in Indianapolis. Their son William-Alexander Ketcham

        (1846-1921) was a captain in the Civil War, and was Attorney-General of

        Indiana 1894-1898.

 

        (d) Catherine8 Merrill, A.M., was professor of English language and

        literature in Butler University, Indianapolis, for eighteen years. She wrote, in

        1869, "The Soldiers of Indiana,"a record of the State's participation in the

        Civil War. One of the public schools of Indianapolis was named the

        Catherine Merrill School in her honor.

                                                                                                                    

        (e) Merrill Moores of Indianapolis is a lawyer and Member of Congress. He

        is a son of Julia-Dumont8 (Maine??rill) Moores.

 

        (f) Samuel8 Merrill graduated from Wabash College in 1851, was a

        lieutenant-colonel in the War of the Rebellion, and was consul-general of the

        United States at Calcutta from 1890 to 1894. He wrote "The Seventieth

        Indiana Volunteer Infantry in the War of the Rebellion," which was

 

        published in 1900. The last years of his long life were spent at Long Beach,

        Calif. :: :: Charles-White9 Merrill (1861-1920), son of Samuel8, was

        treasurer of the Bobbs-Merrill Company, publishers, in Indianapolis.

        Another son, Samuel9 Merrill, formerly deputy consul-general at Calcutta,

        graduated at Stanford University in 1895, and is now clerk of the Superior

        Court in Los Angeles, making his home in Pasadena. Charles10, eldest son

        of Samuel9, is a mining engineer in Mexico, and Samuel10, a younger son, is

        a horticultural bacteriologist.

 

        (g) Jesse7 Merrill graduated in medicine from Dartmouth College in 1819,

        and practiced his profession in Franklin, New Hampshire, and East Boston and

        Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

 

        (h) David7 Merrill graduated from Dartmouth College in 1821, and from the

        Andover Theological Seminary in 1825. He preached at Urbana, Ohio,

        1827-1841, and later at Peacham, Vermont. A number of his sermons were

        published, one of which, known as the "ox sermon," from the text, Exodus

        xxi., 28, 29, was circulated as a temperance tract. This was written about

        1830. An edition of 2,200,000 copies was printed, with a view to giving a

        copy to every family in the United States. It was reprinted by the American

        Tract Society about 1845. Its circulation is said to have exceeded that

        attained by any other American publication up to that time.

 

        Arthur-H.Estabrook, Ph.D., who was elected president of the Eugenics

        Research Association in 1925, made a study of the descendants of Jesse6

        Merrill, and the results of his work were published in the Eugenical News for

        November, 1924. In this article he says:

 

        "Jesse had seven children who reached maturity, and the offspring of these

        now number about three hundred persons. Seven of these have been noted

        in 'Who's Who in America.' Five others are found in the standard

        biographical dictionaries. This makes an incidence of special ability, as

        indicated by appearance in some biographical dictionary, of one in

        twenty-five, which is two hundred times the ratio of ability in the general

        population as shown by incidence in 'Who's Who in America.'

 

        "One of the Merrills was well known because of his marked military

        activities during the Civil War; five because of outstanding legal ability; four

        in the field of letters; one in the ministry, and one as lawyer and later

        executive. The family has included many teachers,

 

              a less number of lawyers and quite a number in the military. Practically none

        have been in business or acted as executives. A comparatively large number

        attended college, especially during the earlier generations, when college

        attendance was the exception. The family has never been wealthy, but has

        been known for its interest in letters, the law, the church, and in public

        affairs."
