The Haskell Family

ROGER, WILLIAM, and MARK HASKELL, three brothers, are undoubtedly the patriarchal heads of the Haskell family of New England and are found to be very early settlers at Beverly, where Roger had twenty acres of land granted him by the town of Salem, in 1636—probably located not far from Essex Bridge. In 1643 John Hardy made application for a 10 acre lot for his son Joseph, “about the Bass River,’’ and at the same time interceded for a grant of meadow land for Roger Haskell; and the selectmen gave him six acres. In 1646 Roger Haskell and William Dodge were appointed a committee “to call upon the neighbors about Bass River head to mend the two bridges which were decayed, being the Country way, and the way which was formerly made leading from Joe Porters farm to Wenham.” In 1655 Roger was on the jury, and in 1657 chosen constable for Cape Ann side. (1) ROGER HASKIELL1 was born in England in 1613, and died in Beverly in 1667. (For will see Appendix.) He married, first, a daughter of John and Abigail Stone, of Beverly; m. second, Elizabeth, dau. of John and Elizabeth Hardy, of the same town. Mr. Hardy d. 1652, and mentions in his will son-in-law Roger Haskell and his four children, John, William, Mark and Elizabeth.

Edward Berry, Sen., who owned real estate on Essex Street, nearly opposite Derby Square, Salem. She died before 1683, and Mr. Berry, quite advanced in...

Henry Coombs of Marblehead

A brief notice of this family is here given, to more clearly show its relative connection with that of the White and Haskell Families, and which is interwoven with them from the first to almost the last generation in a remarkable degree. To this end it is not necessary to give more than a mere outline of its history, making use of such names as will serve to connect each family of the several lines or branches. (1) HENRY COOMBS1 was of Marblehead as early as Dec. 22, 1648, when he with others had lots laid out in the swamp. April 11, 1653, he sold a cow lease to John Legg, and in 1656 was chosen “way warden.” In 1661 ho had temporary charge of the Ferry, at which place he appears to have lived. In 1667 a complaint was made against him for uttering slanderous reports concerning Rev. Mr. Walton, of Marblehead, in saying that “ he preached nothing but lies, and be could prove him to be a knave.” (Co. Ct. Rec.) The inventory of his estate was taken Sept. 16, 1669, by Henry Bartholomew, Moses Maverick, and Hilliard. Fishermam. He m. Elizabeth _______.
