11 - 11 - 11: Day 5 - Favorite New England Ancestors - Part I


In celebration of November 11th, 2011, 11-11-11, I will be writing all month long about my favorite things in groups of 11.

I actually have more than 11 favorites for this category so I will have two installments.

Here are the first set of 11 favorite New England Ancestors:


  • Edward Clark (1622-1710) & Dorcas Bosworth (1622-1681) - [Haverhill, MA]
    • The beginning of my wife's Clark line in America with Viking DNA
  • John Putnam (1580-1662) & Priscilla Gould (1585-1662) - [Salem, MA]
    • Infamous connection to the witch trials
  • John Hoar (1616-1704) & Alice Lisle (1624-1696) - [Concord, MA]
    • Gateway ancestor to royalty
  • William Lewis (1602-1671) & Amy Weld (1620-1673) - [Roxbury, MA]
  • Nathaniel Whiting (1609-1682) & Hannah Dwight (1625-1714) - [Dedham, MA]
  • Nathaniel Colburn (1615-1691) & Priscilla Clarke (1615-1692) - [Dedham, MA]
  • William Frothingham (1603-1651) & Anna (1607-1674) - [Charlestown, MA]
  • James Kidder (1626-1676) & Anna Moore (1630-1691) - [Billerica, MA]
  • Shadrach Thayer (1629-1678) & Deliverance Priest (1644-1723) - [Braintree, MA]
  • Henry Adams (1583-1646) & Edith Squire (1587-1672) - [Braintree, MA]
    • Connection to at least two presidents
  • Richard Sylvester (1605-1663) & Naomi Torrey (1614-1668) - [Scituate, MA]


Though none of these folks came over on the Mayflower, most of them were immigrants.  You could say that they came over on the "Second Boat".

  1. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  2. I believe we are related at least twice, once through Edward Clark and John Putnam. It' will be fun to follow you!
