Edmund Weston
Brief Overview & Will

(Bowman MD 15:187+)

There were numerous intermarriages between the desendants of Edmund Weston, born about 1605? married _______ Delano, and Mayflower families. George Bowman repeatedly corrects misinformation on this family published in "The Descendants of Edmund Weston of Duxbury" 1887 as published in NEHGR141: 285. The only known wife for his son Elnathan was widow "Jane," (Unknown) (not Desire Standish) Elnathan's nephew Nathan married Desire February 21, 1715. Sarah(3) did not marry John Churchill; rather, John Chandler 4 March, 1707/8.

Edmond Weston(2) (Edmund1), of Plymouth and Plympton, Mass., was married, on 13 December, 1688, to Rebecca3 Soule, a daughter of John2 Soule (George1) of Duxbury, by his first wife, Rebecca Simmons. Children appearing in Plympton are: Nathan Weston, born 8 February, 1688; Zachariah Weston, born 16 December, 1690; Rebecca Weston, born 31 July, 1693; John Weston, born 27 July, 1695; Edmund Weston, born 21 October, 1697. Edmond(2) died intestate 23 September, 1727.

Elnathan Weston in a will dated 19 April, 1728 mentions the following children: "to my sons Samuel and Joseph weston my forty acre lot of land at pine brook Equaly betwext them"

"to my Daughter Sary the wife of John chandler fifty shilings"
"to my Daughter abigal fifty Shilings and my best bed and furniture belonging to it and the bigest plater and the bigst pewter bason"

Edmund came on the ship Elizabeth and Ann arriving in Boston, MA, in 1635. His age on the passenger list was given as 30. He probably came as an indentured servant as he was apprenticed to John Winslow and later to Nathaniel Thomas. By 4 Nov. 1639, he was licensed by the Court to live with John Carew and to be partners with him in planting Carew's land. He received various land grants, including in 1645 one of the original proprietorships in the Bridgewater grant. He was listed from Duxbury in 1643 as able to bear arms, was made a freeman on 7 June 1653, and served in various public offices such as grand juror and highway surveyor. In his will, dated 16 April 1686, and confirmed by witnesses 3 June 1686, he named three sons and one daughter, calling his daughter the wife of John Delano.

Edmund Weston and his wife (name unknown) had at least four children, order of birth not known accurately, all born in Duxbury, MA:

Elnathan, b. probably ca. 1657; m. Jane -----.
Mary, b. perhaps ca. 1658; m. John Delano.
Edmund, b. ca. 1660; m. Rebecca Soule.
John, b. probably ca. 1662; m. (1) Deborah Delano; m. (2) Rebecca Peterson.



Edmund Weston arrived in Boston in 1635 on the Elizabeth and Ann, and his age was given as thirty. On 2 November 1636 Mr. John Winslow transferred the services of Weston for the next two years to Nathaniel Thomas on behalf of his father William Thomas. He lived in Duxbury and had various land grants, including an original proprietorship in the Bridgewater grant. He became a freeman on 7 June 1648 and he served in such offices as grandjuryman and highway surveyor. He seems to have married late in life; his wife's name is unknown, though there is speculation he might have married a daughter of Philip Delano. His will was dated 16 April 1686, sworn 3 June 1686, and he named his sons Elnathan, Edmond, and John, and his daughter Mary, the wife of John Delano.
