Newbury Merrill's

Descendants of Nathaniel *Merrill

Generation No. 1

1. NATHANIEL6 *MERRILL (NATHANIEL5, JOHN4 *MERRELL, THE YOUNGER, JOHN3 *MERYELL, JOHN2, THOMAS1) was born May 4, 1601 in Wherstead, Suffolk, England, and died March 16, 1654/55 in Newbury, Essex, Mass. He married SUSANNAH WOLTERTON September 23, 1633 in Wherstead, Suffolk, England, daughter of STEPHEN WOLTERTON and SUSANNA WOLTERTON. She was born Abt. 1610, and died January 25, 1672/73 in Newbury, Essex, Mass.

Notes for NATHANIEL *MERRILL: Settled, Newbury, Mass. 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, Mass. 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 MA 1917-1928

Nathaniel(1) Merrill was one of the earliest settlers in Newbury, MA in 1635. 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. These reasons will be given at length in another place.

Nathaniel Merrill and his brother John settled in Newbury in the spring of 1635, having passed a year or two in Ipswich, MA., (then called Agawam) with most of the Newbury settlers. In 1638 nathaniel became one of the "proprietors" 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.

From "Merrill Genealogy" by Paul V. Merrill, The Merrill Newsletter, Vol 4, Issue 3.

Nathaniel and his brother John came to America in 1633, supposedly on the ship Hector. [Ed note: it is not know that John came first and Nathaniel at some later date.] They landed at Ipswich, MA, but soon moved to Salisbury, MA. By 1635 Nathaniel moved to Newbury, MA. He owned land in Ipswich, MA in 1636 and received a grant of land in Newbury, MA on the "Neck" south of the Parker River, May 5, 1638. Children, John, Abraham, Nathaniel, Susanna, Daniel, Abel and Thomas. Nathaniel died- Mar 16 1654/44 in Newbury, MA. His wife died Jan 15 1872. 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 WOLTERTON: 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, Conn. 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, MA 1917-1928

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.

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.)

Gregory 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. But Gregory Wilterton may have been a more distant relative, or merely a friend. Until other evidence is brought forward the conscientious genealogist must say that the maiden name of Nathaniel's wife in unknown.

2. NATHANIEL7 +MERRILL (NATHANIEL6 *MERRILL, NATHANIEL5, JOHN4 *MERRELL, THE YOUNGER, JOHN3 *MERYELL, JOHN2, THOMAS1) was born Bef. May 25, 1634 in Lawford, Essex, England, and died January 1, 1682/83 in Newbury, Essex, Mass. He married JOANNA NINIAN October 15, 1661 in Salisbury, Essex, Mass.

Notes for NATHANIEL +MERRILL: From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge, MA 1917-1928

Nathaniel(2) Merrill (Nathaniel(1)) spent his life in Newbury MA, 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.

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

Notes for DEACON JOHN *MERRILL: From "A Merrill Memorial" by Samuel Merrill, Cambridge, MA, 1917-1928

John(2) Merrill (Nathaniel(1) one of the older sons of Nathaniel went to Hartford, CT 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 16m 1635/36 in Lawford, Essex, Co., England.

Notes for DANIEL MERRILL: [Brøderbund WFT Vol. 14, Ed. 1, Tree #2138, Date of Import: Feb 26, 1998]

BIO:Daniel Merrill passed his early years in Stratham, NH, later at Falmouth, ME. At the time of his marriage he lived at Falmouth but moved in 1779 to Gorham, ME Daniel was a prosperous farmer and lived in the south part of Gorham. The house is still standing (1911) and has been since owned by the late Reuben Wescott, who married one of the Merrill daughters. The old grandfather's clock, and the silver knee buckles worn by Daniel are now treasured as souvenirs by his grandaughter Miss Harriet Towle of Westbrook, ME. Some effort has been made to connect this Daniel with another branch, but church and county records, traditions of his descendants and papers left by him, verify it beyond any reasonable boubt.
