George Dyer1

     George Dyer was born circa 1579 at England.1 He married Abigail (?) before 1630 at England.1 George Dyer died on 18 June 1672 at Dorchester, Suffolk, Massachusetts, USA.1
     George Dyer came on the "Mary and John" in 1630 with his wife, and probably, his two daughters, Mary and Elizabeth. Little is known about him, probably because he had no sons and left no namesakes. Of his fifteen grandchildren, eleven were girls. He settled first in Dorchester, Mass. where he was on jury duty (Court of Assist. - 28 SEP) in Sept. 1630. He became a freeman there 19 OCT 1630, was Constable in 1632 and was granted land in 1634. He and his wife, Abigail (second wife?) signed the church covenant in Dorchester in 1636. In his will he listed, daughters, Elizabeth, wife of William Trescott and Mary, wife of William Pond and he left his weaving looms to his son-in-law, James White, of Dorchester. - p. 105, Search for the Passengers of the Mary and John, 1630. Vol. 4 (Allen through Fyler). 1987. B.W. Spear, Toledo.


George Dyer was another of the "Mary and John" emigrants who had been associated with the Dorchester Company of Adventurers. He was a stockholder of the company and suffered losses with the others. Little is known of his life in England except that he was a weaver in Dorchester, Dorset, in 1621. The surname appears frequently in West Country records and there was a Thomas Dyer known to the Wolcotts living in Somerset in 1630, who was a poor day laborer with a wife and children but no yearly means of support. By the lack of wills it would seem that none of the family was very prosperous. It is not known whether George Dyer continued his occupation as a weaver after reaching Massachusetts with his wfie, Abigail; daughter, Elizabeth, and probably his daughter, Mary - only that he was on jury duty in September, 1630, became a freeman the following year, and constable in 1632. He was ninety-three years old when he died in1672, which would place his birth at circa 1579. - p. 40, 41; The English Origins of the "Mary and John" passengers. Ann Natalie Hansen (Columbus, OH)


The Great Migration Begin:

ORIGIN: Unknown MIGRATION: 1630 FIRST RESIDENCE: Dorchester
OCCUPATION: Possibly weaver, based on bequest of looms to James White.
CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: George and Abigail Dyer were among the first to be admitted to the second church at Dorchester, between 23 August 1636 and 7 December 1636 [DChR 3]; they may well have been members of the first church also.
FREEMAN: Requested 19 October 1630 and admitted 18 May 1631 [MBCR 1:79, 366].
EDUCATION: Signed agreement of proprietors of Thompson's Island who relinquished the island to the town of Dorchester in order to raise funds for maintenance of a free school, 7 February 1640[/1] [DTR 106]. Signed will. Inventory included "all his books of all sorts," £2 1s.
OFFICES: Coroner's jury, 28 September 1630 [MBCR 1:77]; constable of Dorchester, 3 October 1632 [MBCR 1:101]; Dorchester selectman 27 June 1636, 5 July 1636, 8 November 1637 [DTR 16, 17, 25]; fence~viewer (usually for the "field behind Mr. Mather's"), 16 January 1636/7, 18 March 1637/8, 27 January 1645/6, 11 February 1647/8, 28 February 1652/3, 13 February 1653/4, 9 February 1656/7, 8 March 1658/9, 11 March 1660/1, 4 April 1664 (as "Goodman Dier"), 9 March 1667/8, 8 March 1668/9 [DTR 21, 32, 67, 85, 96, 103, 121, 150, 158, 294, 299, 314]; committee to lay out land, 2 January 1637/8, 23 July 1642 [DTR 27, 29, 50]; committee to make tax rate, 18 January 1635/6, 2 October 1636 [DTR 15, 20].

ESTATE: On 27 June 1636 granted three acres of marsh in Dorchester [DTR 16]. On 18 March 1637/8 granted two parcels of nearly five acres each [DTR 30]. Granted Lot #38, four acres, in the Meadow beyond Naponset [DTR 321]. On 13 January 1667/8 included in "list of the acres of land at the Neck being rated at a half penny per acre for the plow land only," being rated 6d. (indicating a parcel of twelve acres) [DTR 149]. In his will, dated 31 December 1671 and proved 2 August 1672, George Dyer bequeathed to "my beloved daughter Elisabeth the wife of William Trescot & unto her heirs forever all my dwelling house, outhouses, barn, yard, orchard together with my houselot & meadow adjoining to it unto the Salt Creek," also "my meadow in the Calves Pasture," also "five acres of my planting land at the Great Neck, the lot I bought of John Pierce to be part of it & made up five acres out of my lot adjoining," also "half of my great lot both within fence & without," also "all my division beyond Naponset River on the south side"; to "my beloved daughter Mary the wife of William Pond & to her heirs forever a piece of marsh lying between two salt creeks commonly called the old harbor," also "my piece of meadow lying at the entrance into the Great Neck, together with all the rest of my upland within the Great Neck, together with all the rest of my upland within the Great Neck not before given," also "half my great lot both within fence and without," also "my last division on the north side of Naponset"; daughter Mary to have half the grass or profit therefrom from the meadow adjoining the houselot for five years; any lands remaining in common, whether divided or undivided, to be equally divided between the two daughters abovementioned; to "my loving son-in-law James White of Dorchester my looms for weaving with all the utensils thereunto belonging in case he the said James will make use of them in the said work"; all household goods to daughter Elizabeth, except linen, which is to be divided equally between Elizabeth & Mary; "my two acres of salt marsh that lyeth near the Mill Creek near Roxbury being part of a division I have sold to James White before mentioned & received satisfaction to content & given him possession; sons-in-law William Trescot and William Pond to be executors and pay debts and funeral expenses [SPR 7:233].

The inventory, taken 29 June 1672, totalled £425 4s. 6d., of which £370 was real estate: "the housing, barn, orchard, houselot & meadow at the end unto Salt Creek," £100; "two acres of meadow on the other side the creek," £14; "six acres of meadow in the Calves Pature Meadows," £60; "a piece of meadow at the north of the Great Neck," £30; "eleven acres or thereabouts of upland at the Great Neck," £46; "at the great lots besides what's disposed of at each end before," £80; "the 2d & 3d [divisions] in the Cowwalks, 10 acres or thereabouts," £15; "the last division on the north side Naponset, 15 acres," £5; "the last division on the south side Naponset, 29 acres or thereabouts," £20; and "the common beyond the Blue Hills," no value given [SPR 7:234].

BIRTH: Probably in the early 1590s. (The claim that he was 51 years old in 1630, and therefore born about 1579, is very likely based on the death record below, which if literally interpreted leads to a calculated year of birth of 1579 or 1580; most claims of longevity stretching into ten decades are usually exaggerated by a decade or so, which would give the revised estimate of birth given here, and be consistent with the assumed ages of his known children.)
DEATH: Dorchester 18 June 1672 "being the 93rd year of his age" [DVR 28 (this death record is given for a William Dyer, but there is no other record of a person of that name in Dorchester so early, and this date falls conveniently between the dates of the making and proving of the will of George Dyer)].
MARRIAGE: By late 1636 Abigail _____, seen only at admission to church membership (see COMMENTS below). (If she was the mother of both his daughters, the marriage must have taken place a decade earlier.)

CHILDREN:
i ELIZABETH, b. say 1626; m. by 1646 William Trescott (eldest child Samuel b. 4 November 1646 [DVR 5]).
ii MARY, b. say 1636; m. by 1657 William Pond (eldest child Samuel d. 2 October 1657 [DVR 25]).

ASSOCIATIONS: In his will of 9 October 1638 BERNARD CAPEN names as one of his trustees "my brother George Dyer." Capen's wife was sister of AQUILA PURCHASE, who was closely related to THOMAS PURCHASE, perhaps even brother. On 31 May 1641 Thomas Purchase makes a letter of attorney to George Dyer of Dorchester, planter, and three others to act for him in an action of trespass [Lechford 401-03].
COMMENTS: In 1634 Reverend John White of Dorchester, Dorset, prepared a list of those adventurers who had been associated with him in the New England fishing trade from 1623 to 1628, and toward the end of the list is "George Dier, living in New England" [NEHGR 61:280]. This indicates that George Dyer was perhaps from Dorchester in Dorset, or at least from one of the three counties of Dorset, Devon or Somerset.

The probability that George Dyer was a passenger on the Mary & John is very high, in that he meets the three basic criteria for inclusion on this ship's synthetic passenger list: West Country origin, first appearance in New England in 1630, and first known residence in New England in Dorchester.

Banks provides three guesses for the origin of George Dyer, all based on "Banks Mss.": Dorchester, Dorset; Fitzhead, Somerset; and Wincanton, Somerset. (Some additional data, still far from conclusive, are given in M&JCH 2:97, 3:56, 13:18.)

The only evidence for a wife or wives for George Dyer, aside from the existence of his daughters, is the record of the admission to church of Abigail Dyer in 1636. Savage claims that Dyer had wife Elizabeth, but there is no record evidence for this, and there may be some confusion with the daughter Elizabeth. Related to the question of the wife or wives of George Dyer is the bequest to son-in-law James White. Does this imply a third daughter who married James White, or a marriage to a widow White who was mother of James? A careful analysis of all available evidence needs to be carried out to answer this question. (An attempt to solve this problem is the claim that George's daughter Mary married first William Pond and second James White [M&JCH 1:26], but this will not do, since Pond died in 1690, eighteen years after the writing of George Dyer's will.)

Both of the daughters of George Dyer used the name Samuel for their eldest son, and both named a daughter Martha. These names may be useful in investigating the parentage of George Dyer, or of the mother of his children.1

Peter Talbott1

M, b. 1654, d. circa 1704
     Peter Talbott was born in 1654 at Lancashire, England.1 He was the son of George Talbott and Anne Ryley. Peter Talbott married Mary Goole on 12 January 1677/78 at Dorchester, Suffolk, Massachusetts, USA.1 Peter Talbott married Hannah Clarke on 29 December 1687.1 Peter Talbott died circa 1704.1
     The article from which the following statement is compiled was written by Miss Caroline Whiting, of Norwood, Mass., from information that she obtained from Joel Talbot, Esq., of Stoughton, and the Misses Anna and Catherine Talbot, of Norwood, and printed in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register for April, 1855.

"Peter Talbot was born in Lancashire, England, and while a youth, at a boarding school in Edinburgh, he, with two other of his fellow students, were seized one day, while out in a boat, by a press-gang and taken on board a man of war, bound for the American coast. When near Rhode Island, he escaped from the vessel in the night, and by swimming reached the main land in safety, leaving on board his more timid companions, who had tried to dissuade him from so rash an undertaking. From his place of landing, he travelled northerly, and after a journey of some days, arrived in Dorchester, where he considered himself safe from pursuit. Here by industry and frugality he secured the means to return home, never intending to settle in New England. He paid his passage and took his effects on board, himself staying on shore during a storm, which detained the vessel from sailing. The weather having cleared, the vessel sailed early in the morning, leaving him behind, but taking his effects, and he losing his hard earned passage money.

He bore his misfortune with courage, and soon after married. Again he made preparations to return to England, this time taking a wife with him, but strange though it may seem, from the same cause as before, the vessel sailed without them, again depriving him of all his property. Hearing afterward that the vessel with all on board was lost, he concluded that it was intended that he should remain in New England, and made no further attempt to return home.

Some years after his mariage he removed to Chelmsford, Mass. During his residence in Chelmsford, while he and hs eldest son were absent, the Indians came to his home, seized his wife, and carried her away with them, first killing her infant child. the Indians were pursued by the town's people, and Mrs. Talbot was soon rescued and returned to her home. Her children, Sarah and George, and probably Elizabeth, were out of doors together, when the Indians appeared and safely hid themselves in a ledge of rocks, not far away from the house.

The eldest son was killed while fighting the Indians, either at this time or at a later period. After these disasters, the family returned to Dorchester and made it their future home. It is supposed that he died about 1704; his widow, surviving him, lived with her son George, in that part of Dorchester now Stoughton, probably at the original homestead. Sarah, his daughter, married, but to whom it is not known, and Elizabeth Talbot, who was probably another daughter, married Eleazer Puffer."

The genealogical part of the article is found, after careful investigations, not to be absolutely correct, and has not been copied.

The only events relating to Peter Talbot, contained in the family record of his son George, and thus preserved, are, that he was "born in Lancashire old England" and that he "died about 1704." This is from my father's copy; but happily there are other sources of information, from which we are able to follow him during a great part of his life, after he settled in Dorchester. How early he arrived in this town is not known, but the first date we have is 1675, when he is found on the Dorchester tax list. He was in the military service before October 14, 1677, for on that date his military account is made up by the province treasurer, showing the amount due him to be 18 pounds, 16 shillings, 08. In 1679 he removed to Milton, where he remained until 1684, if not later, he being taxed there in a rate made in January of that year. December 14, 1686, he was one of fifty persons who bought a large tract of land in that part of Chelmsford which has since become the city of Lowell. Two years later he sold his undivided interest in this land, but retained a home lot that had been set off to him. He remained in Chelmsford until after March 16, 1691-92, for at that date he was on the rolls of the west regiment of Middlesex; but soon after, returned to Milton, where he was taxed in 1693 and 1694.

The latest date that has been found relating to him, is May 4, 1704, when with his wife Hannah, calling themselves of Boston, they sold six acres of land in Chelmsford. His son George was a witness to the deed. It is probably a hundred years since Richard Talbot made this entry in his family record, relating to his great-grandfather, "died about 1704," and it was his belief, that about that time he undertook to make a visit to England, and not being heard from afterward, was supposed to have been lost at sea, or to have died soon after his arrival there. At any rate no positive evidence has been found as to his decease.

The sale of land in Chelmsford in the early part of 1704, a circumstance of which those who fix the time of his death would not be likely to have had any knowledge, adds to the probability that the date of his voyage to England, if he made one, is correct.

Peter Talbot was married to his first wife, Mary WADEL, by Gov. Dudley, in Dorchester, January 12, 1677-8. With much time and research Mary Wadel has been completely identified, but the date of her birth, the names of her parents, and their residence has not been found. Mary GOOLE married, in Chelmsford, December 25, 1666, John WADEL, whose alias was WATTEL. He died before June 6, 1676, that being the date when the inventory of his estate was taken. In this inventory the appraisers returned "one bed and furniture to it, and one cow," prized at Dorchester, and valued at five pounds. His whole estate was valued at 38 pounds, 9 shillings, 6. It seems to be clear that at this date, his widow, for some reason, was living in Dorchester. He left three children who lived to grow up and marry. Their names were William, Mary, and Rose, and they, in 1710, made sale of their father's real estate in Chelmsford. At this date, 1710, Mary was living in Woburn, Mass., Rose in Preston, Conn., and William in Lebanon, Conn., which at the same time was the home of Dorothy Talbot, wife of James Cutting, daughter of Peter and Mary (Wadel) Talbot. Mr. Cutting in his will, made in 1746, appoints William Wattel, his friend, one of his executors. These facts, I think, are conclusive, that the first wife of Peter Talbot was the widow of John Wadel, and they also make doubtful the story that they made arrangements to return to England soon after their marriage, as the number of their family would seem to be a hindrance to such a procedure.

Mrs. Talbot died in Chelmsford, August 29, 1687, and on the same day John Fisk and Susanna, widow of George Byam, also died. Three deaths in one day, out of population so small as was that of Chelmsford when these deaths took place, must have been exceptionable; but it is not found that they were from other than natural causes, and the Indian raid and massacre as stated in the "tradition," has not been found to be related to these deaths. Peter Talbot married, December 29, 1687, for his second wife, Hannah Clarke, of Concord, widow of William Frizzell, to whom she was married November 28, 1667, and whose death occurred in Concord, January 25, 1684-5. Elizabeth Frizzell, their daughter, undoubtedly lived with her mother, as she was admitted to the Milton Church, August 11, 1700. No attempt has been made to follow the history of the other children of Frizzell. The ages of both these wives, judging by the dates of their first marriages, would indicate that the second husband, Peter Talbot, had been some time in this country before his marriage, or that he was older, when he arrived, than the "Tradition," would make him. The date of his death has been previously considered, but nothing has been found to fix that of his second wife.
