Zachariah Eddy

M, b. March 7, 1639, d. September 4, 1718

Parents

Family: Alice Paddock (b. March 7, 1640, d. September 24, 1692)

Biography

  • Birth: Zachariah Eddy was born on March 7, 1639 in Plymouth, Plymouth Co, Massachusetts.
  • Marriage: He and Alice Paddock were married on May 7, 1663.
  • Death: Zachariah Eddy died on September 4, 1718, at age 79, in Swansea, Bristol Co, Massachusetts.
  • Note: Reference: Zachariah Eddy b. 1639 (Court Orders, Plymouth, [Written] 2. 1. 151); d. Sept. 4, 1718, leaving a will; m. (1) May 7, 1663, Alice Paddock (East Bridgewater, V.R., also Plymouth Records, p. 28). She was b. Mar. 7, 1640; d. Sept. 24, 1692; daughter of Robert Paddock, (or Padduck) and his wife Mary . . . He m. (2) Abigail Smith, widow of Dermit Smith (alias Jeremiah, for which Dermit was a common nickname). She d. Sept. 13, 1720 leaving a will, dated Jan. 2, 1720. Zachariah was bound out at the age of seven years to Mr. John Browne of Rehoboth. This Mr. John Browne was a man of importance in Plymouth, being the Governor's Assistant from 1636-1655. He was one of the original settlers and proprietors of Taunton and also of Rehoboth. A large tract of land called Wannamoisett was granted to him for his services to the government of Plymouth (Hist. of Taunton, p. 32). Mr. John Browne died in1662, but in a deed dated Dec. 29, 1661, he left to 'Zacariah Eedey now resident in my family' 1/3 of 150 acres in Narragansett betwixt Quidnisset and trading house of Richard Smith (Plymouth Col. Deeds, p.103). On Jan. 4, 1661, 'Zachariah bought of Thomas Savery a piece of land lying near Whetstones Vineyard in the Major's Purchase bounded on or near where Eddy lives' (Plymouth Co. Deeds, 3, 81). On March 24, 1662 he received from his father Samuel, land near 'Namassakeet' (Plymouth Col. Records, p. 116), and later 'The court has granted to Zacary Eedey a smale gusset of land lying betwixt his land and the brook, from his house below the path to Namasskett unto the aforesaid brooke unto a bridg or way neare unto a path that turns out of the old way unto Wm. Nelson's house, the sd. parcell of land so bounded as aforesaid, is granted unto the said Zacary Eedey . . . etc. on condition that the said Zacary Eedey doe continue abridge neare his house in the place where it is needed for horse and cart, for the use of the countrey, for the full tearme of twenty years from the date here of. June 7, 1665.' (Court Orders, Plymouth, printed. Vol. IV, p. 95. Hist. of Middleboro, p. 41.) From these records it appears that upon completing his apprenticeship Zachariah went to Middleboro and settled there, remaining for about eight years. His house stood on the twelve acres, granted him by the court, near what was later known as Eddy's furnace, just south of the present Eddyville. In 1666 his bounds were laid out by Ephraim Tinkham and Henry Wood (Court Orders, 4, p. 128). In 1667 Hugh Cole, Constant Southworth, Josias Winslow, and others, all of Plymouth, purchased of King Philip all the marsh and meadow land of Mattapoysett. At this time Rev. John Myles, who had been a pastor in Wales and had been driven from his parish by the new laws of the English king (Act of Uniformity issued by Charles II), was in Plymouth, but his preaching did not please the church members there and Myles and his few Baptist Dissenters were sent to Rehoboth. Complaints soon drove him from there, and he was advised by the court of Plymouth to go farther south beyond the borders of Rehoboth. The Court then decided to grant to him and those of like mind the new tract recently purchased from the Indians. On Feb. 22, 1669 fifty-five men signed the articles of agreement which made this section into the new town of Swansea. Two of the signers were Zachariah Eddy and his brother Caleb. Thus Zachariah and Caleb became two of the first purchasers of Swansea and at the same time became members of the First Baptist Church in Swansea. Zachariah took an active part in the Church life. In the old Church Book, now in the vaults of the B. M. C. Durfee Trust Co. of Fall River, there is a copy of a letter sent to a church in Boston, asking that the brethren in Boston help the Swansea Church in the selection of a pastor. Both Zachariah and Caleb Eddy signed this letter. In these earliest times Swansea comprised the land which lay between the two upper forks of Narragansett Bay, south of Rehoboth and Taunton, and extended from the Taunton River to the Providence River. There are five main necks or peninsulas extending southward. The most eastern one (now Somerset) is between the Taunton River and Lees River (formerly called the Mattapoisett River). This neck was called Shawomett Neck. The next peninsula lies between Lees River and Coles River. This was called Mattapoisett Neck (now called Gardner's Neck and South Swansea). The third peninsula is divided into two sections by the Kickimuit River. It lies between Coles River and the Warren River. The whole section was called Kickimuit, while the eastern section was often called Towesett (alias sheep pasture) and the western section was called Mount Hope Neck. The latter extended far to the south and was the great stronghold of King Philip. Between the Warren and the Barrington Rivers was New Meadow Neck (now called Hampden Meadows). The most western neck, between the Barrington River and the Providence River, was called Wannamoisett Neck. The Shawomett lands comprised not only the Shawomett Neck but probably extended as far north as the present Dighton line. These words of explanation will give a clearer idea of the extent and location of the purchaes of Zachariah Eddy and his sons. Soon after the incorporation of Swansea, Zachariah Eddy was made Freeman of Swansea on May 29, 1670. The following year on May 11th, he was chosen way warden and on June 5th, he was elected surveyor of highways. In 1675 when King Philip's War broke out it is likely that Zachariah and his family took refuge in Plymouth for a few years. While there on June 5, 1677 he was summoned by the court of Plymouth to serve on the Grand Inquest. Some time in June of this same year, 1677, those who had formerly lived in Middleboro previous to the outbreak of the war, together with some who owned property within the borders of Middleboro, sixty-eight persons in all, met and agreed to resettle the town. The listof the names of 'The Proprietors of the liberties of the township of Middleberry taken at Plimouth' contains the item, - 'Sachariah Edey, Samuell Edey, 1 propriation.' When Samuel Eddy became a proprietor of the town of Middleboro, he thereby obtained the privilege of being aparticipant in all future divisions of the undivided lands belonging to the township. This right was passed on to the sons when they received from im the lands at Namassakett. When the land was sold by them theproprietor's rights went with the land. On July 23, 1673 Zachariah Eddy's name appears as the recipient of a lotin the South Purchase, which included the present towns of Rochester, Wareham, Carver, and a part of Middleboro. Later, on May 17, 1698, when the tract of land was divided, Zachariah received lots 128 and 129. On May 14, 1675, Zachariah was one of those who received a lot in the tract known as the '16 Shilling Purchase.' He received lot No. 51. After King Philip's War, when all danger from hostile Indians was over, probably about the spring of 1678, Zacharia and his family returned to Swansea. He was established there on Oct. 21, 1679, when he purchased apiece of land from Thomas Barnes, and by this purchase obtained rights asa 'second ranch man'; that is in any division of lands he would receive twice as much as a man of the 'third ranch' (or third rank as it is more often written). The third rank man received one unit of a division, a second rank man, two units, a first rank man, three units. (Bristol Co. Deeds, 1. 14.) Zachariah Edey of Swansea bought of Thomas Barnes of Newport . . . My house lott, being 12 acres and 2 acres which I had of Jonathan Bosworth joining with it . . . by ye 33rd page of ye book Land records . . . and all my rt in Common and divisions of land whatsoever may appertain to me as I was a second ranck man in Town of Swansea. In 1681 both Zachariah and his brother Caleb were members of a jury called to view the body of William Makepeace who had been drowned. On June 7, 1681, Zachariah was propounded as Freeman by the court inPlymouth. (Court Orders, [written] Plymouth, 6. 1. 47.) There is norecord of his having been admitted, but it would seem that he must have been admitted, for he was called upon to perform the duties of a Freeman.He was made constable. This (Plymouth) court imposes and authorizes Zachariah Eddy to be constable of the ward of Showamett and to act within that ward as inevery respect as an other constable might do and proper unto the proprietors of Showamett, respecting them at that place. July, 1683.(Court Orders Plymouth VI, p. 115.) Zacharia's name appears on the records in connection with several items of minor interest. On Sept. 26, 1697, together with Hezekiah Luther he was appointed to take the inventory of Widow Bartram's estate (N.E.H.G.R., Vol. LXIII). On Apr. 5, 1710, Zachariah Eddy testified at Bristol that he was 'then about 70 years of age and that a certain lot of land was laid out by Samuel Luther, Thomas Esterbrooks, and Hugh Cole, about 26 years ago in the right of John Allen.' Most of the first purchases of Zachariah Eddy in Swansey were in the Shawomet Neck probably on its western side, and bordering on the Mattapoisett River, probably along the present highway leading out of Swansea Village toward Fall River. Zachariah Eddy of Swansey bought on Nov. 1, 1683 of David Wood of Middlebury, house carpenter ½ share in land at a place called Shawawmett in New Plymouth Colony - ½ part of the first division in ye Great Neck being in number the 2 & 20thlot and in quantity about 45 acres & ye 1 moiety or half part of second division being in quantity 5 acres & also ½ of ye 3rd division being about 36 acres and all ye same divisions and allotments are bounded as may appear by ye records (Bristol Co. Deeds, 1, 15). May 20, 1696. Zachariah Eddy of Swansea bought of James Bell 'a 5 acre lot of upland lying in Shawamott Neck in Swansea, belonging to the Shawomett Purchase, 29 in number of the second division of small lotts purchased by me of Mr. Nicholas White of Taunton bounding easterly with Thomas Paine's lot; westerly with lot belonging to Gov. Josiah Winslow, Dec'd.; northerly on a highway and southerly on Samuel Winslow, about 5 acres.' (B. C. D. 2, I.) Zachariah Eddy bought of John Road (or Reed) of Freetown, 'land being in Shawomett Neck in Swansey belonging to the freeman's purchase - meadow 2 acres a part of the third lot of meadows which fell by division to Thomas Thatcher of Boston and purchased of Thatcher by John Road (or Reed) bounded eastwardly with upland belong to Shawomett Purchase, westerly with the river that parts Mattapoisett Neck and said Shawomett, northerly beginning at a brook of water and from a tree marked 2 on north side said tree and three on south side,' etc. (B. C. D., 2, 3.) Zachariah Eddy of Swansey bought of 'Richard Winslow of town of Boston, lot of land at Swansey known by name of Shawomett Neck, part thereof being already laid out in three lots, the great lot being the first of the 3, being 45 acres and in number the 23rd, the second is 5 acres and no 23 and the third beares the denomination of the outlett lott and is numbered 16.' etc. (B. C. D., 2, 117.) Zachariah Eddy of Swansey in County of Bristol bought of 'John Borden of Portsmouth and Mary Borden his wife land in the township of Swansey and bounded eastward in part by land of Zachariah and partly by upland belonging to Shawmmonot Purchase, westerly by the river that driveth the fulling mill that belongeth to the said Zachariah Eddy and extendeth in length northwardly and southwardly from the afore said fulling mill to a small white oak which is marked and showeth near the mouth of the cove. (B. C. D., I, 286.) From this deed it would seem that in addition to farming Zachariah had a mill somewhere near the present site of Swansea Village. This mill later came into the possession of his son Zachariah. On July 30, 1691, James Brown sold to Zachariah Eddy in return forre lease of land at Narragansett, one rank right and a half of undivided lands, that is ½ of all the land yet undivided at the day of the date, pertaining and belonging to the said James Brown of Swansea (B. C. D., 2.57). In this deed Zachariah parted with that land which Mr. Brown of Rehoboth had given him just before his death, probably in return for his services when an apprentice. Zachariah passed on the land obtained from James Brown to his son Zachariah. On Oct. 14, 1695 the four sons of Samuel came to an agreement in regard to the ownership of the land which they had received from their father. Zachariah's share was on the east side of the Namasket River, in what was known as Capt. Southworth's Purchase (Plymouth Co. Deeds, Vol. VII, p.177). This same year he sold to Obediah of Middleboro, his brother, certain lands in Middleboro (Plymouth Co. Deeds, 2.5). After the purchase of the lands in Shawomett near the head of the neck and bordering on the east side of the Mattapoisett River, Zachariah sems to have purchased lands adjoining on the west, so that all the land of the present Swansea Village on the south side of the highway and extending from the main highway on the east, to the road which leads to Gardner's Neck, on the west, was a part of his possessions. This would include the present Stevens estate, the Eddy Burial Plot and the Swansea Dye Works and the land upon which the houses bordering the highway on the south are situated. It would seem that his homestead was on or near the Stevens estate. This plot he sold to Caleb Eddy his son in a deed dated Jan. 27, 17I0/II. Zachariah Eddy, yeoman, 'to son Caleb Eddy, cordwainer, . . . my homestead, houses etc. at Mattapoisett . . . 50 acres of upland and meadow and salt marsh etc. at the head of Spring Brook, then by Spring Brook to salt water, then rounding by low water until it comes to a stake in the little cove before my door . . . to the brook near the Indian line; edge of Rocky Run Brook . . . Country Road.' (B. C. D., 7, 489.) The section west of Spring Brook and extending to the road leading down to South Swansea, he sold to his son Zachariah on Dec. 29, 1696.Zachariah Eddy, yeoman, 'to son Zachariah Eddy, Jr. yeoman, 20 acres lying at a place commonly called and known by the name of Matapoysett in Swansey, bounded northerly with a highway, easterly with the fence and Spring Brook to the Salt Water, southerly to the land of Ralph Chapman ... excepting and reserving the Burying Place on the premises which is to lye and remain as a burying place for and to the families of the said Eddys & for such their neighbors as the said Eddys shall admit offorever.' Dated Dec. 29, 1696. Ack. Mar. 19, 1696/97. (B. C. D., 2, 57.) The exact location of this land sold to Zachariah is very clear. The highway leading to Ralph Chapmans is the road leading off of the main road down to South Swansea. This was the western boundary; the present highway in Swansea village probably was the northern; Spring Brook which is now partly on the Stevens estate and separates the Stevens estate from hte Eddy Burial Plot was the eastern boundary; and the salt water and Ralph Chapman the southern. The Burial Plot mentioned in the deed to Zachariah was used by the descendants of Zachariah for over a hundred years, as the place to bury their loved ones. The oldest stone therein, which bears any inscription is dated 1700. On Jan. 22, 1700 Zachariah bought of Capt. T. Broks, 20 acres, at Mattapoisett. (B. C. D., 5, 510.) Zachariah Eddy ffuller bought of Ralph Chapman of Newport . . . upland and salt marsh meadow at Mattapoisett Neck in Swansea about one and a half acres. Bounds mention a mill pond and low water mark. Dated May 18, 1705. (B. C. D., 4, 433.) On Mar. 23, 1704/05 Zachariah bough of Hugh Cole 3 acres on the River that parts Mattapoisett and Shawomet (B. C. D., 5, 420). In addition to these lands at Shawomet and Mattapoisett, Zachariah owned land at Towissett, which he sold to Ralph Chapman and lands at Kickimuit near the Kickimuit Bridge, which he sold to Nathaniel Cole. Beside the purchases already mentioned Zachariah bought several other tracts of land in Swansea, so that he became a large landholder. As his sons grew to manhood and wished to start out in life for themselves, he deeded to them one after another, certain of his properties. The parts given to Zachariah and Caleb have already been mentioned. On July 8, 1700 Zachariah Eddy sold to 'well-beloved son John Eddy of Swansea, blacksmith, a piece of land lying and being in a place called Shawmut and in the township of Swansea, containing 40 acres and two 5acre lots which he had purchased of James Bull or Bell and Richard Winslow. His wife Abigail signed this deed, which was witnessed by Thomas Seamons, Daniel Wilbur, and John West. (B. C. D., Vol. III, p. 223.) Again on Jan. 7, 1705/6 he sold to 'my well beloved son, John Eddy of Swansea, blacksmith, 5 A. and the 3 A. lot, I bought of J. Little . . . and also my meadows lying on the south ward side of the line which runneth between my son Joshua Eddy and my son John Eddy to the middle of the land as there it runneth.' (Bristol Co. Deeds, Vol. III, p. 35.) Zachariah sold to 'my son Joshua Eddy, cooper, for the great love I bear him land and meadow at Mattapoisett which I purchased of Hugh Cole.' To his son Obadiah Eddy, tanner, he gave 90 acres near the brook on the Indian line, with the proviso that Obadiah could not sell it without the father's permission. To his son Ebenezer, who was living in Middleboro, he gave the 60 acres bought of Thomas Savery and Benjamin Eaton, and all of the rest of the lands east of the said sixty acres, also 400 A. which is called the Major's Purchase, and the three acres bought of Robert Ransom, and right in Assawamsett Neck, and a gusset of 12 A. granted by Plymouth, reserving 12 A. to myself. John Eddy was a witness to this deed. There are many other records of land transactions on file but they contain very little of genealogical interest. One deed was signed by wife Alice (B. C. D. 5, 545), another by wife Abigail (B. C. D. 3, 204).Elizabeth Eddy, Mary Eddy and Samuel Eddy witnessed the deed of April 23, 1690 (B. C. D. 5, 545); Bethia Smith witnessed a deed of Sept. 14, 1699 (B. C. D. 3, 204): Caleb Eddy and Samuel Eddy witnessed a deed of Aug. 4, 1698. Having thus disposed of most of his possessions to his sons during his lifetime, Zahariah had but little to leave to his children as an inheritance. His will, dated Nov. 4, 1718, mentions his wife Abigail and all of his sons, to whom he states that he has given to them the land which he considers their share. It mentions also his daughter Elizabeth Whipple, who is deceased and his son-in-law, Samuel Whipple; his grandson Edward Eddy; and his wife's son, Timothy Smith. To his son Joshua he left his great Bible (Bristol Co. Prob., 3, 488). His wife Abigail left a will, dated Jan. 2, 1720, which mentions daughters, Abigail Hatch, Bethia Eddy, Hannah Simmons; son-in-law, Remembrance Simmons; daughter, Hope still Kelley; and granddaughters, Ann, Abigail, and Amy, daughters of Caleb Eddy, whom she called her son-in-law (Bristol Co. Prob., 3, 693). In the Eddy Burial Plot which Zachariah set aside to be a place for the burial of the Eddys forever are many graves, marked by stones which bear no inscriptions. Without doubt Zachariah and his two wives lie buried in some of these. New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Third Series, Volume IV page 1780 Zachariah Eddy, son of Samuel Eddy, was born in 1639, died September 4, 1718. He was a farmer. In 1646 and 1647 he was bound out to John Brown, a shipwright of Rehoboth, until he was twenty-one years old. He was propounded as freeman, June 16, 1681. On June 7, 1665, he was granted twelve acres of land between his land and the Whetstone Vineyard Brook. At that time he was living in Plymouth. On July 10, 1667, he purchased thirty acres of land adjoining the land on which he lived, as well as other lands; his house was situated on the twelve acres granted him, near what was the 'Eddy Furnace,' in 1840.
