Figures in parentheses placed before a name, forming the subject of a distinct notice, thus, (2) THOMAS,” denote time numerical order in which he stands, and will be found by turning back to that number. Names in the family group, printed in large capitals, thus, “2. THOMAS2” i.e., number 2, Thomas, second generation, will be understood as subjects of future treatment, and may be found forward, under that generation, with the same number enclosed in parentheses before the name.

First and Second Churches in Marblehead Massachusetts

The first church in Marblehead was built in 1649. “From the earliest records of this town, it appears that as early as 1648, when ‘the Planta­tion,’ as it was called, contained forty-four families, there was preaching among them by Mr. Walton.” “Mr. Walton continued to officiate as a public teacher, though without ordination, about twenty years, till he was removed by death, in August or September, 1668, but a few weeks before the commencement of Mr. Cleever’s labors.’’ May 24, 1684. The brethren at Marblehead, finding a great incon­veniency in going to Salem, with the unanimous concurrence of the con­gregation, applied themselves to Mr. Samuel Cleever, who had been the minister among them for fifteen years and a half past, that he would take the office of a pastor, and themselves might be congregated into a particular society, for the enjoyment of all the ordinances in this place orderly, as in other towns and places in the country.’’ ‘The church was gathered Aug. 13, 1684, having fifty-four members. [Charity Pitman was one of the number.] SAMUEL CLEEVER, who had preached in Marblehead sixteen years, was ordained Aug. 13, 1684. Mr. Cleever was born at New haven, Conn., Sept. 22, 16:19, graduated at Harvard College in 1659, and died in the ministry at Marblehead, May 29, 1724, in the 85th year of his age, and of his ministry the fiftieth. ‘‘It is said that for forty-eight years he was never hindered from performing the duties of his office a single Sabbath.” JOHN BARNARD was ordained colleague of Mr. Cleever, July 18, 1716. Mr. Barnard was born at Boston, Nov. 6,...

Notice Of William Haskell

WILLIAM HASKELL was a native of Marblehead, and supposed to be a descendant of Mark Haskell, of Beverly; b. 1726, d. in Lynn, Nov. 9,1809, aged 83 years. He was a shipwright, and pursued that occupation the greater part of his life, when, till the infirmities of age prevented, he took up the busi­ness of boating. It is remarked, by Mr. John White, of Marblehead, one of the oldest living representatives of that family, that Mr. Haskell was always considered to be a cousin to his grandfather, John White, which, if true, would make him grandson to Mark Haskell who married Charity Pitman. He had often heard him spoken of by his father, as “old uncle Bill.” He removed to Lynn about 1803, when, Dec. 5, of that year, he and his wife Ann sold to Peter Colman, of Marblehead, laborer, their one-fifth part of a dwelling house and land under it, near the powder house in Marblehead, bounded S. on the way to the Ferry, NW. on the late Azor Orne, and N. on Jesse Blanchard, with their rights in the estate of their late father, Peter Colman. Witnessed by James Gardner and Samuel Alley, Jr. Mr. William Haskell married Ann, dau. of Peter and Ann Colman, of Marblehead. Five children 1. MICHAEL2 d. young. 2. REBECCA2 bapt.

Mark Haskell, Second Generation

(3) MARK2 (Mark1), born in Beverly; removed to Marblehead, 1696—7, where he died May, 1734. He was a coaster, and also a proprietor in the so ­called Plain Farm, which farm first and last had elicited much controversy and litigation between the several proprietors respecting the boundaries of their farms. This farm consisted of six hundred acres, and was originally owned by John Humphrey, to whom it was granted by General Court, March 12, 1637, and partly bounded on Hugh Peters’s farm and Coy Pond, which lies near, and on the western side of Legg’s bill, Salem. Sept. 5,1710, “Mark Haskell, and his wife Cha­rity, dau. of Ambrose Gale, dec’d,” bought of Benjamin Gale and Benjamin James, children, and joint administrators of the estate of their late father Am­brose Gale, “a parcel of land in the Coy pond land, lying in the township of Salem.” Feb. 9, 1731, he and his wife Charity sold to their son Ambrose, a part of a certain garden formerly in the possession of Dea. Ambrose Gale, deceased, containing 80 ft. front anti rear, and 54 ft. deep, bounded on land of Elizabeth Girdler, the street, and on Gale’s meadow. The same day he sold the remainder to his son Mark. June 25, 1717, he bought of his son-in-law, Abiel Pitman (son of John Pitman, deceased, first husband to Charity), for £17, all his right in the house of his father, “in which my said father-in-law now lives,” with a parcel of land at the west end of it. July 24, 1735, Charity Haskell, widow of Mark, sold to Hannah Goodwin, her daughter, 8...

Mark Haskell Fourth Generation

MARK4 (Mark,3 Marks2 Mark1), baptized March 16, 1729; d. Aug. 29, 1811; lived at the ferry. He first learned the earthern-ware business at Danvers ; but through dislike of his occupation he removed back to Marblehead, and assumed that of a shoreman. Aug. 29, 17555, he sold to Susannah, widow of Mark Haskell, his father, a house and land, bounded S. W. on the street by the new meeting-house (now Unitarian), 28 feet S. on Strikers land, E. 011 Batchelder’s land, Mark to a stake &c., leaving 22 feet on land of said 13 inches from the south corner of “my house.” Aug. 25, 1755, he bought of the above-said Susannah Haskell, who was administuatrix of the estate of Philip Hubbard, “the late mansion house and land formerly belonging to said Hubbard, bounded S. on the street [Mugford Street] opposite the new meeting-house, N. W. on Phillips, E. on Batchelder, and S. E. on Striker.” Sept. 2,1765, he bought of Mary White, widow (probably of Thomas) one acre of land at the ferry “near Noggs head,” and bounded on the sea. Sept. 8, 1173, he sold to Capt. Jona. Glover, of Marblehead, merchant, one half right of a lien in middle division No. 22, and formerly in possession of Sarah Merritt. Dec. 16, 1179, he sold to William Bean a house near the new meeting-house, formerly the property of George Wilson, bounded on William Hayden, Bartlett, and the road. Feb. 18, 1785, he bought of Nicholas Coombs, executor to the will of Michael Coombs, his father, “a cow’s commonage in the upper division, in the great field.” Also a...

Mark Haskell Fifth Generation

(29) THOMAS5 (Mark,4 Mark3 Mark2 Mark1), baptized July 19, 1767; d. July 22, 1855. Master mariner; had made a number of voyages to Bilboa and Corunna, Spain, and afterwards retired from the sea and became an owner of a number of vessels and of a considerable landed estate. Nov. 26, 1801, he and his wife Mary, with the following named parties, to wit — Joshua Prentiss, Jr., Henry Prentiss, Thomas Prentiss, Christopher Prentiss, Edmund, Jr., and Abigail L, Thomas Calley and wife Grace, and widow Margaret Ingalls, all of Marblehead, sold to John Bubier Prentiss, for $800, their eight-tenth parts of a house, barn and land, given to them by will of their late grandfather Christopher Bubier, deceased, which estate was bounded on the way from trainingfield hill to Nick’s Cove, with a shop “now occupied by John Sumner.” May 4, 1809, he bought from Abraham and Mar­tha Wendell his wife, of Salem, a tract of land and a house bounded on the highway passing training­field hill, and on land set off to Sarah, wife of Michael Coombs, deceased, the premises being the same sold to said Sarah Coombs by a committee of the General Court in 1782 as confiscated estate. Dec. 15, 1809, he bought from Nicholas Coombs his one-tenth part of the house and land adjoining training-field bill, lately belonging to the estate of Capt. Michael Coombs, as set off to his said wife Sarah as her thirds, by General Court, Feb. 11, 1809. Also, four days after, he bought of Thomas Goss, of Pejepscot, Me., another tenth part of said man­sion, and two other tenth parts...

Mark Haskell

(1) MARK HASKELL1 brother to Roger and William, settled in Beverly, where he died 1668—9. His inventory was taken Jan. 27, of that year, by Thomas Lathrop and Richard Brackenbury, and presented in court, March 30, 1669. His clear estate was £370 8s. 3d. — £200 of which was awarded to his two sons, viz. “William, the eldest, to have a double portion. Mark, the youngest, the bal. of the £200. Hannah Hascall to have £110 8s 3d” In the inventory there is mentioned a “ Ketch at sea,” which would be appraised on its arrival home, and rendered into court. An additional appraise­ment was rendered by Thomas Woodbury, William Hardy, and Hugh Woodbury, of Beverly. Some of the items mentioned in the list of debts due from the estate are as follows: “John Budd, of Long Island. Mr. Brown, of Salem. To his daughter in Law. To William Haskell. To John Haskell. To Thomas Chubb.” From the foregoing it would appear, by the mention of his daughter-in-law, that he had another son who died before him, perhaps without issue. Unfortunately, their names, with that of his father-in-law, were not mentioned. Mark, Sen., was undoubtedly the younger of the three brothers. He appears to have been a mariner, and engaged in the fishing business. The first mention of his name is in the Salem Book of Grants, where, at a meeting of the selectmen, Feb. 24, 1656-1, he petitions that Jeffrey Massey and Mr. Conant should “sett at reight the land that is in difference between him and Richard Haines, & have power to Issue it.” His country, county...
