>>>>>CONTINUED FROM NOTES FOR JOHN WOODCOCK, SR, HUSBAND OF SARAH>>>>>
The first settlement within the present (1886) bounds of the town of Attleboro was in the neighborhood of the Baptist meeting house, where Hatche's old tavern still stands. It was commenced by Mr. John Woodcock, his sons and their families soon after the first division (of lands) in 1669. Here he built a public house on the "Bay road" and fortified it as a garrison, and laid out lands to the amount of about three hundred acres, which afterward made an excellent farm. At this time and subsequently he took up in several parts of the town about six hundred acres, part on his own shares, and the rest on rights that he purchased of Roger Amidon, James Rednay, Andrew Willet and others. A part of this six hundred acres was on Bungay river, where Bishop's shop once stood, and this he conveyed to his son Jonathan, "with the saw mill thereon standing."
Woodcock's garrison house was occupied for a garrison. It was licensed in 1670, according to the following: (See Old Colony records, July 5th, 1670.)
John Woodcock is allowed by the court to keep an ordinary at the "Ten Mile River" (so called) which is in the way from Rehoboth to the Bay. And likewise enjoined to keep good order, that no unruliness or ribaldry be permitted there.
Woodcock's garrison was a well-known place of rendezvous in the great Indian war and was probably for some years the only house excepting its immediate neighbors on the Bay road between Rehoboth and Dedham, though this was then the main road from Rhode Island, Bristol, Rehoboth to Boston. The Bay road extended at first from Rehoboth through what is now the city to West Attleboro, north to Woodcock's, thence over Ten Mile Hill, to Jacob Sheperdsen's in what is now Foxboro, thence through Dedham and Roxbury to Boston. This garrison was one of a chain of fortifications extending from Boston to Rhode Island. There was one in Boston, one in Dedham at Ames' Corner, Woodcock's in this place, one at Rehoboth situated in the center of "great plains" on the borders of which the first settlements were principally located. Another at Senport on the Island and perhaps others in the intermediate spaces. It was a famous place on this road, a convenient public house for travelers as well as a well-known station in King Philip's war. It witnessed many a military force on its march to the defense of the Colonists, and such often halted and encamped there on their route over night, and sometimes longer, while waiting for additional forces. Companies were sometimes ordered there to await the arrival of other troops who were to accompany them, and then the solitary places of the wilderness were enlivened by the tread of armed men and the sounds of martial music. While armies in their marches halted there and great men of the Colonies, in their travels, stopped there, this house is often mentioned by historians. The celebrated Judge Sewall relates in his "Diary" that on his return from Rehoboth he dined at Woodcock's with fellow travelers on boiled venison, which was probably just such a dinner as they chose in those days, and would not be unacceptable at the present time. Madam Knight in her famous journey from Boston to New York, lodged there over night and speaks of her fare.
This was considered a perilous journey in those days and required eight days to accomplish. This "Oulde Bay Road" was the first main road laid out in this part of the country, and all travel would necessarily pass by this ordinary in those early days which might be called the dawn of life and civilization. It is a delight to go back in imagination and view the landscape that surrounded the traveler, and the novel scenes of early Colonial life. Mile after mile of almost trackless woods filled with bears, deer and other denizens of the forest, with here and there a gleaming lake or sparkling river glinting in the sunlight. The plodding wayfarer on foot with his heavy staff, the rider on horseback, clad in the quiet costume of the time, and anon, a little opening in the wilderness with a single log house, or a small cluster of rude buildings where rest and refreshment could be obtained for man and beast. As one traveler dismounts, or another shifts his burden to the bench by the open door, we can see the dwellers of the hamlet slowly gathering one by one to hear the news from the outside world, a faint echo of whose events just reaches these secluded places, or the women collecting about the peddler to hear the latest fashions of the towns described, and to barter for some of the contents of the pack by his side.
The old garrison house was torn down in 1806. A great part of the timber was said to be perfectly sound, pierced, however, by many a bullet received in Philip's war. A relic of this house has been preserved by the Massachusetts Historical Society. In April, 1676, the Indians, having suffered severe defeats in a body, adopted a new mode of warfare and disposed themselves in small parties over the country, burning and killing and destroying wherever opportunity offered. Among other outrages they attacked the Woodcock garrison, killed one man, and one of Woodcock's sons and wounded another, and then burned the son's house. Some circumstances connected with this event appear to have been accurately preserved by tradition, from which and other sources, are gathered the following particulars: "His sons were at work in the cornfield near the house. The Indians, concealed in a wood adjoining this field, (now the meadow on the east of the turnpike below the bridge) approached to its borders and suddenly fired upon them. The workmen fled to the garrison house, leaving the dead body in the field. The Indians to gratify their spite against the family, cut off the son's head, stuck it on a long pole which they set up on a hill in full view of the family, to aggravate their feelings as much as possible. From this time Woodcock swore never to make peace with the Indians, he ever afterward hunted them like wild beasts. He was a man of resolute and determined character and tradition says that not a few fell victims to his vengeance, and a sacrifice to the name of his murdered son. This attack was in April, 1676. The body of his son (whose name was Nathaniel) was buried on the spot where he fell, nearly in the center of the yard, which has ever since been reserved for a burying ground. A detail of six soldiers had been sent to this garrison for its protection by the Plymouth government, as may be seen by Woodcock's petition to the General court. They had been temporarily withdrawn for service elsewhere, leaving him dependent upon his own resources, and in great danger from the roving Indians. There were only fourteen persons living in the settlement at the time, consisting of his sons and daughters, and sons-in-law, and including two or three others, and probably a man by the name of Rocket, whose signature as a witness appears on several instruments, was one of them.
The writer has visited the locality and viewed the site of the old garrison house, and walked through the Woodcock burying ground at North Attleboro. Through the efforts of the late E. R. Price and other public-spirited citizens, a retaining wall of granite has been built enclosing the entire lot. When Woodcock sells his farm and garrison to John Devotion in 1694, he reserves a plot of land six rods square for "a burying place in which my wife and several of my children and neighbors are buried."
Woodcock had a large family with a number of laborers and assistants. There must have been fully fourteen in the entire family. He had a smith on his place, barns, a garrison house of large size, sons' houses, etc., so that his place made quite an opening in the forest and furnishel social relief to the lonely and weary journeyers. There was on such a route more travel than one would at first suppose, for emigrants were from time to time going from town to town, and settlement to settlement, seeking eligible situations or locations, and messengers on business matters or the municipal and military affairs of the Colonies must have passed to and fro. Woodcock occupied this garrison house for twenty-three years.
On Feb. 17th, 1693-4, John Woodcock, senior, of Rehoboth (with Joanna, his wife) for œ390 money in hand received, conveys to John Devotion of "Muddy river," formerly of Boston, a tract of land containing two hundred and ten acres, being at a place called "Ten Mile River," by a highway called Wrentham Lane, etc., with the mansion or dwelling house, barn and all other outhousing and buildings. (The smith shop only excepting, standing on the river.) Also thirty acres lying on the northwest side of the country road, formerly given to his son, John Woodcock, bounded by Ten Mile River, etc., with his son's dwelling house and barn on the same.
John Devotion took quiet possession of the same April 9th, 1694, in presence of Nathaniel Brentnal and William Chaplin. In this conveyance to Devotion is the following curious item: "also all the said John Woodcock his rights to and privilege in a house and pasture at Wrentham for accommodation of his family and horses on Sabbath days and other public times as occasion may be." As we have seen he formerly had a house at Rehoboth for a similar purpose; from this and other records it appears that Woodcock and his family were very attentive at public worship.
John Woodcock, Sr., died Oct. 20th, 1701, having arrived at a very advanced age in spite of many attempts which had been made by the Indians to destroy him. It is said that after his death the scars of seven bullet holes were counted on his body. He was an inveterate and implacable enemy to the Indians, the cause of which has already been cited. In encounters with them on several occasions he ran imminent risk of his life. He was foremost in all enterprises, the object of which was the destruction of the Indians. He was a very useful man as a pioneer in the dangers and hardships of a new settlement, being cunning in contrivance, and bold and active in execution. He was buried in the Woodcock burying ground, so-called, and the record of his interment and the record of William Woodcock's interment appears on the same page of the North Purchase records. The writer believes that the William Woodcock mentioned was a brother of John1. "William Woodcock deceased this life 27th day of October, 1703."
The history of John Woodcock of Rehoboth has been given considerable space and has been quoted largely from Daggett's History of Attleboro, 1834. Hon. John Daggett, the author of that work, was a lineal descendant of one of the early settlers, and was a leading man in that community. He was well educated and equipped in every way to write and compile an accurate and faithful history of the town. In 1894 his daughter, Mrs. Amelia Daggett Sheffield, extended the history written by her father, publishing "A Sketch of the History of Attleborough." That is one of the most complete town histories in the country, inheriting from her father rare gifts of an author, she has given to the public a work that is very much appreciated. Through the courtesy of Mrs. Sheffield, the writer has been permitted to quote such matters as pertain to John Woodcock1."
As heretofore stated, John Woodcock1 became a large holder in the North Purchase lands, now Attleboro. The records of Bristol county show that he distributed these acres as well as his personal estate quite liberally among his children before his decease. His career at Rehoboth and on the North Purchase lands was in many respects an eventful one, full of hardship and danger. It covered the period of the Indian wars that brought disaster to so many of the new settlements of Eastern Mass. Yet amid all these perils and disadvantages he seems to have prospered in gaining worldly possessions and raised a family of at least eight children. In his correspondence with the colonial authorities he calls the troublesome Indians "the heathen." It is in evidence that he considered that "the heathens" "have no rights that a white man need respect," as he laid hands on an Indian chief's papoose, and held the papoose as security for a debt, which the chief refused to pay. This act of Woodcock was not countenanced by the town authorities, and possibly to placate the excited Indians he was punished in accordance with Puritan discipline. However, this incident did not forfeit the respect and confidence of his fellow citizens, as he was soon after chosen as a deputy to the General court at Plymouth, the highest honor they could bestow upon a citizen.
As will be noticed, John Woodcock1 distributed nearly all of his real estate holdings between his sons John, Israel, Jonathan and Thomas, before his decease. The agreement between the heirs and the proceedings at the final division of the estate, is signed by the four sons, and Thomas Estabrook, who was the husband of the daughter Sarah; Samuel Guile, who was the husband of the daughter Mary; and Benjamin Orion, who was the husband of the daughter Deborah. It is not known whether any of these daughters were living at the time. The writer has a tracing of the signature of Jonathan, one of the sons mentioned.
John Woodcock1 died Oct. 20th, 1701, intestate.
The following agreement is taken from the Bristol County Probate records (Vol. 2, folio 37):
"Agreement--Between Joanna Woodcock, Relict, to John Woodcock of Attleboro, deceased, and John Woodcock, Israel Woodcock, Jonathan Woodcock, Thomas Woodcock, Thomas Estabrook, Samuel Guile and Benjamin Onion, children and heires to said John Woodcock, deceased. The widow to have one-third part of the movable estate for her own forever; and one-third of the housing and lands, during life; also two milch cows, a warming pan, etc. The children to have remainder of estate equally divided between them, after the ffunerall charges and debts be payd."
Dated at Attleborough this fourth of December, 1701, and acknowledged same day.
At the time of the division of John, Sr.'s, estate, dated 6th of March, 1703, the agreement is between Joanna Ffouler, relict to John Woodcock of Attleborough, deceased, and is signed by James Ffouler, Joanna Ffouler and the heirs as named above. (Vol. 2, folio 106.)
Here follows the Administrator's account:

By McWILLIAM CARPENTER,
The following conveyance has already been referred to:
John Woodcock of Rehoboth to John Devotion of Muddy River (now Brookline) formerly belonging to the town of Boston, land at Ten Mile River, also about 30 acres on the northwest side of the country road, formerly given and granted by the said John Woodcock unto my son, John Woodcock, as by a deed thereof may appear. Except a plot of about six rods square for a burying place in which my wife and several of my children and neighbors are interred.
Dated 17th Feb., 1693-4. Ack. same day.
JOHN WOODCOCK1 had quite a large family. The names of John, Israel, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Thomas and Sarah, Mary and Deborah.
There was undoubtedly a Samuel, who married Mary Newman at Rehoboth Jan. 3rd, 1669. He might have been the son slain by the Indians with Nathaniel April 28th, 1676, as the father writes to the Mass. Bay Colony that two of his sons had been slain. The writer has found no records of Samuel's family. ...

King Philip's War (1675-1676) 109
The court endeavored to appl y justice to everyone, and it demonstrated this determination dramatically to the Indians in 1638 when four white men robbed and murdered an Indian on the h ighway. Arthur Peach, Thomas Jackson, Richard Stinnings, and Daniel Crosse we re indicted, and, though Crosse managed to escape custody, the other three were hanged. On 6 March 1654/55 the court sentenced John Woodcock of Rehoboth to sit in the stocks and to pay a forty shilling fine for going into an Indian's house and taking away some goods plus the Indian's child as satisfaction for a debt the Indian owed him.
Adonijah Morris, who also seized some goods from t he same Indian for a debt, was likewise fined forty shillings. On 5 October 1 663 three Indians came to court to answer a complaint against them by Ephraim
Doane, but when Doane did not appear to prosecute, the court awarded the Indi ans five shillings each for their trouble. On 1 March 1669/70, Thomas Matthews was fined three shillings four pence for beating up an Indian named Ned, and he was further ordered to pay fourteen shillings to Ned toward his cost of hav ing to travel to court. The Plymouth Court also took it upon itself to act as judge and jury over cases of Indians injuring other Indians within the court' s jurisdiction, and on 27 October 1674 it tried an Indian named Matthias, alia s Achawehett, for the murder of an Indian named Joseph, alias Chachapanucke. The
jury found Matthias guilty of manslaughter "by chance medley," and accordingly the court cleared him of willful murder and released him.It might ha ve been this impartial striving for justice that brought
about the opening vol ley of King Philip's War. On 1 June 1675 a trio of Indians Tobias, his son
Wampapaquan, and Mattashanamo -were tried for having on 29 January 1674/75 "wilf ully and of sett purpose, and of mallice fore thought, and by force and armes, murdered John Sassamon, an other Indian, by laying violent hands on him and s triking him, or twisting his necke, untill hee was dead; and to hide and conce ate this theire said murder, att the time and place aforsaid, did cast his dead body through a hole of the iyce into the said pond." This was a particularly sensitive case, for Sassamon was a Christianized, educated Indian who had on ce served as Philip's secretary. He later left Philip, became a teacher to fr iendly Indians near Middleborough, and, shortly before his death, warned the Plymouth government of a Wampanoag conspiracy to wage a general war. One of his murderers, Tobias, was a counselor to Philip. Accordingly, the Plymouth au thorities were very circumspect, and they added six of the 11 most indifferent est, gravest, and sage Indians" to the usual jury, and all six of these concur red with the verdict, which was that the three accused Indians were guilty of murder. The court sentenced the
three to be hanged, and Tobias and Mattashana mo were executed on 8 June 1675. Wampapaquan was reprived briefly for some un specified consideration, but within a month was shot to death. Right after
the hangings, Plymouth authorities began hearing reports of pronounced Indian unrest.

Attleboro was first settled by John Woodcock. John Woodcock's home is now a landmark and sits across the street from the Woodcock Burying Ground, the place where he buried his son who was killed by Indians. They beheaded the boy and left his head on a stake to distress the family (which it did).
The Burying Ground is also across the street from my favorite Dunkin' Donut. I only mention this oddity because I was raised 1000 miles away from here. We came to this area because my husband took his PhD at MIT. Following that, I was supposed to return obediently to New York but found myself so caught by the Boston area that I went out from the city until I could afford it, then set down roots in a town that required Paul and I to commute weekly to IBM Research in NY for 15 years. And now I learn that great-n granddad stood across the street and looked at his son's head. It's almost enough to put you off donuts.
