Matthias Farnsworth

M, b. July 20, 1612, d. January 21, 1689

Biography

  • Birth: Matthias Farnsworth was born on July 20, 1612 in England.
  • Death: He died on January 21, 1689, at age 76, in Groton, Middlesex Co, Massachusetts.
  • Note: Matthias Farnsworth, the progenitor of the numerous families of Groton bearing this name, came from
    Lynn, Mass. He was an original proprietor of the town, and owned a twenty-acre right. His farm was
    situated on both sides of the road leading to Harvard, a little south of James's brook, more than a
    mile from the village. He was living at Lynn in the year 1657, and at Groton in 1661, though he may
    have been a resident of each place earlier than these respective dates. He died in the latter part
    of the year 1689, aged 77 years. The following is a copy of his Will on file in the Middlesex
    Probate Office at East Cambridge:

    Xbr 17. 1689 - Charlestowne
    Nathanll Larrance & Jonas Prescott appearing in Court made oath that they were present when Matthias
    ffarnworth, deceased, signed sealed and published this as his last Will & Testament and yt (that) he was
    of sound judment and of disposing minde when he did ye same that they set their hands to as witnesses
    with Nicolas Hutchins.
    As attest Samuel Phipps - Clerk
    His wife's name was Mary (Farr) and they had ten children. The list of them given below is compiled
    from different sources. It is probable that his "daughter Robison" was the wife of James Robertson
    or Robinson and in that case her name was Elizabeth and probably
    p.240
    she was born in England. James Robertson an original proprietor of the town, married his wife, January
    16, 1667 and she died December 22, 1729, aged 82 years. I am not sure about the order of the births
    of his children, but I suggest the following:
    Children of Matthias Farnsworth
    Elizabeth who probably married James Robertson
    Joseph born Nov 17, 1657 at Lynn, and died February 20, 1686-7
    Mary born Oct 11, 1660 at Lynn married April 11, 1676 Samuel Thatcher of Watertown.
    Matthias born at Groton.
    John who married December 8, 1686, Hannah daughter of John and Sarah (Eliot) Aldis of Dedham and
    had nine children.
    Benjamin who married Mary, daughter of Jonas & Mary (Loker) Prescott and had ten children.
    Samuel who married Dec 12, 1706, widow Mary (Whitcomb) Willard and had three children.
    Abigail born Jan 17, 1671 and prob. married John Hutchins of Groton.
    Sarah who perhaps married Simon Stone
    Jonathan born June 1, 1675 married Ruth _____ and had fourteen children.
    John Farnsworth, one of the sons named above, was an influential man in all town affairs.
    He was an Ensign in the militia, a Selectman, a Representative to the General Court from the
    year 1708 to 1714 inclusive, excepting 1711, he was in command of one of the eighteen garrisons
    in the town. The name of Matthias Farnsworth of Groton appears in a list of prisoners in the hands
    of the French and Indians in Canada, March 5, 1710-11, though there is nothing in the record to show
    when he was captured. He was probably the son of Matthias Farnsworth, Jun'r and if so, he was a young
    man about twenty years old at the date of the list.
    The first settlement of Charlestown, New Hampshire, then known as Number 4 - was made in the year
    1740 by three brothers, Samuel, David and Stephen Farnsworth, natives of Groton. They all became
    leading men in the town and distinguished themselves on several occasions in fights with the Indians.
    Samuel Farnsworth the eldest brother was killed in a skirmish May 2, 1746. David Farnsworth was taken
    prisoner by a party of Indians April 20, 1757 and carried to Canada. He managed to escape, and reached
    home probably soon after his capture. Stephen Farnsworth the youngest brother, also had his bitter ex-
    perience with the savages. He was captured April 19, 1746, and taken to Montreal, where he remained
    seventeen months, when he was
    p.241
    exchanged. His health was so broken down by the hardships of his captivity that he never fully regained
    it. He died September 6, 1771, leaving behind him the example of a brave man and a useful citizen.
