Lydia died in 1773, Rev Maturin then married Lydia Bliss in 1774.Rev Maturin was a turner by trade, and producer of spinning wheels. He was known as a mechanic, and farmer,as well as a preacher. He was a devoted member of the Calvinist Church, and began preaching in 1752,which he continued for 50 years. Preachers of this time had no theological schools, or salaries.He moved from Smithfield to Pawtucket in 1754, where he built a house and a mechanic shop. Here he also preached regularly. In 1862 this location remained at the corner of Main and N. Union Streets.From here, he removed to Scituate,RI in 1759.About 1767, much interest was developing in the area of Richmond,NH.Rev Maturin sold his interests in RI, and followed the trend of other large families to Richmond, where large tracts of land were available for temptingly low prices. This would assure a suitable base of inheritance for his 6 sons.He was among the first to preach the Baptist Gospel in New Hampshire. He was formally ordained as Pastor in 1770, and continued to 1778. Many of his sons, gr-sons and great-gr-sons also became preachers. (Sanders)

112.John BALLOU*, born 1650 in Providence, , RI; died 1714.He was the son of 224. Mathurin BALLOU* and 225. Hanna PIKE*.He married 113. Hannah GARRETT* 04 January 1677/78.
Notes for John BALLOU*:
John took up his abode with the rest of the family about 1681, and was admitted as a freeman of Providence. He was awarded 3 pounds in or as money to be paid by the General Treasurer for the cure of his wound in the late Indian War. (Oct 1684) Later the 3 brothers John, James,and Peter settled near each other on a large tract of land in the Loquasquissuck area which was subsequently calledLouisquisset. This area is now in the town of Lincoln. Here on 10 acres, John and his second wife Hannah Garrett lived and raised their children.
Hannah was brought to court on 27 Oct 1675 in Newport [General Assembly Meeting]: "There being dubiosity in a case concerning John ffreeman and Hannah daughter of Edward Larkin..." [Mr. "ffreeman" is fined 5£'s and Hannah 40s. and she to] "...keep the child and may have proclamation made and may both be cleared if no accusations come then and paying their fees." [RI Archives, Colonial Records 1671-80, p44]
Seems John paid his but maybe "John Bellow his wife" did not [it isn't clear it would seem, ibid, Treasurer's Acc's p3].Then, on 2 May 1676 at Newport, John Ballou petitioned the General Assembly for a divorce from Hannah. The court found that their marriage hadn't ever been good, she having complained early on of "insufficiency" on his part and that he'd "never had knowledge of her body" and she also confessed that the child she had by then given live birth to wasn't the child of her husband. John Ballou was granted a div. from Hannah [ibid. Col.Rec. p48]
Seems nothing more is recorded about Hannah, her baby [unknown gender & name] and/or, it appears at least from what I have, John Freeman in relation to them...
I know that the RI Archives will send copies of things for a VERY small fee [ie -- 15 cents a copy page. I've done this and they are very fast and good about it] so you could write for these... I was thinking of doing that anyway so let me know if you're interested and I could just send a copy of what they send to me along to you.
Hope this helps! ;-)

Notes for Mathurin BALLOU*:
This data is copied directly from "The Ballous in America" edited by Adin Ballou, copyright 1888,by Ariel Ballou and Latimer W. Ballou.
From the introduction;
Most probably the Ballous are the remote descendants of a Norman Chieftain, who, in 1066,came over from France to England with William the Conqueror.In the year 1884 the proprietors of this History and Genealogy commissioned Frederick M. Ballou, Esq. to visit Europe,and if possible ascertain the ancestry of Maturin Ballou, and whatever else of importance marked his embarkment for this country.In tracing the history of the Anglo Norman Ballous, Frederickfound that their French ancestor, Guinebond Ballou,was probably a marshall in the army of William the Conqueror, and fought in the decisive Battle of Hastings,1066; that some of his descendants dwelt in English county of Sussex till late in the 14th century, where they were extensive landholders,and held important Governmental offices in both State and Church; that in England and Ireland the aristrocratic Bellowes have preserved an unbroken descent of domains and titles for at least 600 years; that the ancient coat of arms, with slight variation, is universal with the Bellews of all localities in England; and that their surname there, as here,has been orthographically various,to the extent of over a dozen spellings Belou, Ballowe,Belloue,etc.,but at present is most prevelantly written Bellew. The immigrant ancestor, Maturin Ballou, was almost certainly the younger son of a younger son of a good family in Devonshire, England ,born probably between 1610 and 1620,who like all the unendowed offshoots of feudal nobility, had to seek his fortune for himself and chose immigration to America.
"Maturin Ballou a co-proprietor with Roger Williams, the Colonial founder of Rhode Island, in his Providence Plantations. Maturin appears first on record among these proprietors in 1646. He subscribed his name Mathurin Bellow. His descendants resolved it into Maturin Ballou..."

Notes for James BALLOU:
James built his first log home in Louisquissett on the Blackstone river before1685. His second house was a framed structure near the first. Here he and his wife, Susannah Whitman,lived out their lives. She was of one of the most respected families in the colony. James inheireted lands from his father and gr. father Robert Pike. In all, this made him the master of several hundred acres. To these, he added other tracts by purchase till he owned near one thousand.(Sanders)
James, son of Maturin Ballou, was born in Providence, in 1652. Soon after his marriage in 1683 he settled in Loquasquissuck, originally a part of Providence, now Lincoln. It is supposed that he began preparations to settle there some time before, and his original log house was erected before 1685. His second home, a framed house, stood near the same site, and the well still remains. On October 22, 1707, his mother and sister Hannah deeded to him all the property which had come to them from his father, and this with his own inheritance of lands from his father made him owner of several hundred acres, together with his homestead. To this he added other tracts by purchase until he became owner of about a thousand acres. His most important acquisitions were in what was then Dedham and Wrentham, most of which became the north section of Cumberland, Rhode Island. His first purchase in this locality was made early in 1690, the grantor being William Avery, of Dedham. In 1706 he added to this enough to make several farms which he afterwards conveyed to his three sons--James, Nathaniel and Obadiah. This division was made April 11, 1713. In July, 1726, he made a gift deed to his youngest son, Nehemiah, of lands situated in Gloucester. Rhode Island, and at the same time gave to Samuel his home farm. His will was made April 20, 1734, and in 1741 he appears to have made another arrangement of his affairs in relation to his personal estate, which he distributed among his children. The exact date of his death is not known, but it is supposed to have been soon after the settlement of his affairs. He was a man of superior ability, enterprise and judgment.(New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Third Series, Volume IIIAuthor: William Richard Cutter)
These seven chn. were prob. all b. in Loquasquissuck, since called Louisquisset, originally in Providence, R. I., later Smithfield, and now Lincoln. There James Ballou2 and wife Susannah settled soon after mge., about half a mile west of Albion Factory Village on the Blackstone River, and a little northward from the farms of his bros. John and Peter. He preceded them as a settler in that locality--certain records showing that his original domicile had been erected previously to 1685. The general tract of territory bearing the Indian name of Loquasquissuck seems to have been regarded by Providence Proprietors as an eminently desirable one. For as early as 1658 they appointed a Committee to clear up a portion of its wilderness lands. It is therefore prob. that James2 commenced his preparations for a home there sometime before his mge. But however this was, his first log house was early erected near where his gt. gd. son, Willard Ballou5, lived and died. His second domicile, a framed structure, stood near the same site, and the ancient well still remains. This second dwelling house was inherited by his son Samuel3, but in 1782 was superseded by his gd. son Moses4 with the one now extant.
On this homestead James2 and wife lived out their useful and honorable lives. She belonged to one of the most respectable families of the Colony, proved herself an exemplary wife, mother and neighbor, and harmoniously co"perated with him in achieving great family success.
(*) Since the foregoing was written some light has been discovered. From two entries in the records
of old Smithfield Town Council, under dates of October 1746 and April 1747, it appears that
Mrs. Hannah was then still living in a state of helplessness, that her sons Maturin3 and Peter3 petitioned
the Council to do something in her behalf, and that Peter3 was appointed her Guardian.
But her death date remains untold. ,
We have stated on former pages the prominent position and grave responsibilities of James2 in relation to his mother and only sister, their confidence in his fostering care, and how he entered into possession of their real estate. This with his own inheritance of lands from his father and maternal gd. father, Robert Pike, made him master of several hundred acres in connection with his primal homestead, or within the circuit of a few miles. To these he went on adding other tracts by purchase till he must have become the owner of well nigh a thousand in all--perhaps more. He made important acquisitions in what were then the southwest parts of Dedham and Wrentham, most of which, by re-settlement of the old Colonial lines, afterward became the northerly section of Cumberland, R. I. To understand the situation of these tracts, it should be remembered that previous to its incorporation Jan. 27, 1746, Cumberland was a triangular territory having for its hypothenuse the Blackstone River. A portion of it was long claimed as belonging to Old Plymouth Colony, and was called "Attleborough Gore." An undefined northern strip of it, over a mile in width, was claimed as originally belonging to the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, and was included in the townships of Dedham, Wrentham, &c. The revision of Colonial boundaries gave the whole area northeast of Blackstone river to Rhode Island, and the same was incorporated as the town of Cumberland in 1746.(*)
James Ballou2 made his first purchase in this locality early in 1690. The grantor was William Avery, blacksmith, resident in Dedham, Mass. The deed is in the old fashioned verbose form. It describes the premises as containing "Forty Acres of Shruffy meadow and swampy Land, as it lieth in Dedham bounds on the easterly side of Pawtucket river, near unto a Rock called Iron Rock; on the west and Northwest side bounded with a ledge of Rocks; on the Southwest Side hilly round about it; as it is layed out, bounded and marked." The conveyance is made "for and in consideration of good and valuable payment in hand, and well and truly paid by James Ballou, of Providence, under the Government of Rhode Island in New England." The covenant concludes thus:--"And I, the said William Avery, do hereby Give Lawful
(*)"In 1746, by a decision of George II. in Council, the 'Gore' was detached from Attleborough,
annexed to the County of Providenee, and named in honor of Prince William, Duke of CUMHERLAND."
History of Woonsocket, p. 16.seizure and possession of the aforesaid forty acres of Land, be it more or less, as it is layed out by estimation, about a mile and a half from the aforesaid River, near Wrentham bounds." Signed Jan. 13, 1690. Acknowledged Oct. 22, 1691. Recorded with Suffolk Deeds, B. 15, p. 28, &c.
In 1706 James Ballou2 augmented his real estate in this vicinity, by purchasing of Nathaniel Ware what was technically called "one cow common right" in all the common and undivided lands of Wrentham. This "cow common right" was deeded by John Lawrence to Nathaniel Ware, both of Wrentham, May 1, 1689, and transferred by Ware to Ballou May 10, 1706. How much land was derived from this right, by subsequent divisions and layings-out, we are unable to state; but it must have been enough to make several handsome farms; for we find that James2 settled his three eldest sons, James3, Nathaniel3 and Obadiah3, on homesteads largely derived from it.
April 11, 1713, he divided and conveyed all the above described Dedham and Wrentham lands and rights to these three sons, making them co-equal inheritors. The consideration was "love and good affection," "settlement and well being" &c. James3 received sixty acres in Wrentham, together with one right in common lands still undivided, and one third part of the Iron Rock meadow, above described as lying in "Dedham bounds." We have all this specified in the original deed now before us. It will be found that the deeds to Nathaniel and Obadiah, of probably the same date and tenor, conveyed to them respectively land enough, in substantial value, to equal the paternal gift to James. Thus ample provision rendered convenient the settlement of these three brothers in the same neighborhood, closely adjacent to each other.
In July, 1726, James2 made a gift-deed to his youngest son, Nehemiah Ballou3, of lands situated on Chepatchet and Pascoag rivers in Glocester, R. I., constituting a respectable homestead. Also, at the same time, he gave to his son Samuel3 his home farm. On the 20th of April, 1734, he made his Will. He described himself as then "being in health of body, of a disposing mind and perfect memory." His real estate had already been settled on his children, but he had some valuables left, which he parcelled out to each of his sons and daughters. Samuel was made his residuary legatee and executor. In 1741 he seems to have made another arrangement of his affairs, in relation to his personal estate, which he distributed among his children. To Samuel he made over, in legal form, most of his movable property; the consideration being "Love and good will, and the care and attention that he had received from him the past sixteen years, in providing him with maintenance in sickness and health, and what further maintenance, care and attention he might need during his natural life." In this closing settlement, he had each of his chn. give him a receipt of full satisfaction with his bestowments on them. The following is a copy of the one subscribed by James3. The others were substantially similar.
"Smithfield, April ye 18th A. D. 1741.
Then received of my honored father, James Bellowe of Smithfield, my full part of my said father's estate, and do hereby acknowledge myself to be herewith fully satisfied, and do hereby promise to never lay any claim to any other or larger part of my said father's estate, but do hereby acknowledge myself and my heirs to be forever barred by these presents. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal the Day and year above written.
Signed, sealed and Delivered,James Ballou (L, S)
in presence of John Inman,
It will be perceived that neither in his Will or later Instruments is there any mention of Mrs. Susanna, the wife and mother. She had prob. passed away during the year 1725, though the exact date has not been ascertained. Nor have we the precise death-date of James himself. We only know that it occurred soon after he had conclusively prepared for it by the settlement of his temporal affairs in 1741. So his mortal form rested, in a good old age, with that of his beloved wife, near the ashes of his honored mother and sister, in his chosen burial place, already described. That unpretentious little cemetery holds undisturbed its sacred kindred relicts, and a portion of the patriarchal homestead, at the expiration of two centuries from its implantment, still remains the heritage of lineal descendants.
James Ballou2 is shown, by all the indications of his record, to have been a man of superior abilities, enterprise, judgment and moral integrity. His opportunities for learning and political distinction were comparatively small, but he made the best of such as fell to his lot. He was evidently well endowed by nature, an apt student in the homely school of practical experience, a sound judicial thinker, orderly in his methods of business, a prudent economist, and a noble exemplar of virtue in all the relations of life. Though a commoner among commoners, his characteristics were those of a natural prince.
