My grandma Lawson's maternal grandparents were Moody & Hannah Baldwin (Jewett) Chase, Jr.Before moving on to their lives, marriage, children, grandchildren, etc, I want to list a few more of their ancestors.
Abigail Kemp, dau of Samuel & Sarah (Foster) Kemp & grdau of Andrew & Ann (???) Foster, m. James Blood of Groton [Middlesex Co, MA Colony] on Dec. 20, 1686, at Groton, when Abigail was almost 22 years of age.Samuel & Sarah (Foster) Kemp disappeared from the Town Records of Groton in 1691/2.
James Blood was a son of Richard Blood & Isabel Wilkinson.Richard Blood, one of the first settlers of Groton, was also the proprietor of the largest amount of land & property in Groton, which in those days meant that he was assessed, and that he actually paid the most taxes, as the wealthiest proprietor of Groton.Richard Blood also served as the 5th Town Clerk of Groton in 1668 & 1669.In 1669, his son James Blood m. (1) Elizabeth Longley, dau of Wiliam Longley & Joanna Goff.William Longley was also one of the earliest leaders of Groton.
Elizabeth (Longley) Blood gave birth to 4 ch, 2 of which died in infancy. Elizabeth d. in Nov. 1675/6, and she left two daus; Mary, b. Sep. 1, 1672 & Elizabeth, b. 27 Apr. 1675.Mary Blood was said to have m. ca. 1690 to John Shattuck.Elizabeth Blood was said to have m. Samuel Shattuck at Groton on Sep. 13, 1692, the very same day that her father James Blood was said to have been "killed by Indians" at Groton, and the very same day that James Blood's widow, Abigail (Foster) Blood's grandmother, Ann (???) Foster, was sentenced to hang for witchcraft at Salem.
Abigail (Kemp) Blood, b. Mar. 27, 1665 in Billerica, Middlesex Co, was only 7 1/2 years older than Mary (Blood) Shattuck and almost 10 years older than Elizabeth (Blood) Shattuck, but as their step-mother she undoubtablely helped them through their early teenage years, or until they were married.It has also been said that Abigail may have also married one of the Shattuck men, although I, personally, have not found any evidence of her marrying a second time.
Abigail had at least 3 known children, at Groton, by James Blood: James, b. Aug.12, 1687, John, b. Mar. 16, 1689 & Martha, b. Oct. 20, 1692, 5 weeks after James Blood is said to have been killed, and when Abigail was 27 1/2 years of age.Abigail's brother, Jonathan Kemp of Groton, was named as guardian of James, John & Martha in 1694, when the estate of James Blood was settled.
The few records of or stories about Abigail & her parents, after 1692, are all very confusing & questionable to me, and seem to end by 1697, the same year ot the death of Andrew Foster, Jr, eldest child of Andrew & Ann (???) Foster, eldest brother of Sarah (Foster) Kemp & uncle of Abigail (Kemp) Blood.
John Blood, son of James & Abigail (Kemp) Blood, was m. July 13, 1712 at Groton to Joanna Nutting, dau of James Nutting & Lydia Longley, dau of William Longley & Joanna Goff.John Blood d. Aug. 23, 1758 & Joanna (Nutting) Blood d. Sep. 9, 1782, both at Groton.[Note: John's brother James Blood m. Joanna's sister Catherine Nutting.]
John & Joanna (Nutting) Blood had a son Moses Blood b. Nov. 25, 1724 at Groton.Moses Blood m. Elizabeth Stone, and had a dau Elizabeth Blood, 2nd wife of David Baldwin.David & Elizabeth (Blood) Baldwin had a dau Elizabeth Baldwin, 1st wife of Abijah Jewett.Abijah & Elizabeth (Baldwin) Jewett had a dau Elizabeth Stone (Jewett) Bradlee, a sister of my Grandma Lawson's maternal grandmother, Hannah Baldwin (Jewett) Chase, 2nd wife of Moody Chase, Jr.
Elizabeth (Stone) Blood, wife of Moses Blood, was a dau of John Stone & Elizabeth Farwell of Groton.John Stone was a son of Simon Stone & Sarah Nutting of Groton, and Elizabeth Farwell was a dau of Joseph Farwell [Jr] & Hannah Colburn of Chelmsford & Groton.
Joseph Farwell [Jr] was a son of Joseph Farwell [Sr] & Hannah Learned of Chelmsford & Dunstable, Middlesex Co, MA Colony.Joseph Farwell [Sr] was a son of Henry Farwell & Olive Welby of Boston & Moulton, Lincolnshire, ENG, & of Concord & Chelmsford, Middlesex Co, MA Colony.
The following quotes are from an outline of the ancestors of Hannah Baldwin (Jewett) Chase, which are printed & published in: ANCESTRAL ROOTS OF SIXTY COLONISTS, Who Came to New England between 1623 and 1650; The Lineage of Alfred the Great, Charlemagne, Malcolm of Scotland, Robert the Strong, and Some of Their Descendents;By FREDERICK LEWIS WEIS, FIFTH EDITION, With Additions and Corrections By WALTER LEE SHEPPARD, JR.; Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1985:
