Richard Dexter Genealogy, 1642-1904

Being a history of the descendants of Richard Dexter of Malden, Massachusetts, from the notes of John Haven Dexter and original researches. Richard Dexter, who was admitted an inhabitant of Boston (New England), Feb. 28, 1642, came from within ten miles of the town of Slane, Co. Meath, Ireland, and belonged to a branch of that family of Dexter who were descendants of Richard de Excester, the Lord Justice of Ireland. He, with his wife Bridget, and three or more children, fled to England from the great Irish Massacre of the Protestants which commenced Oct. 27, 1641. When Richard Dexter and family left England and by what vessel, we are unable to state, but he could not have remained there long, as we know he was living at Boston prior to Feb. 28, 1642.

Biography of Charles Raymond

Charles Raymond, one of the leading manufacturers in Guelph, is a son of Daniel and Sarah (Greene) Raymond, and was born in Ashburnham, Mass., January 6, 1826. He acquired his education in the district schools of his native village and Fitchburg, and the Dracut (now Lowell) Academy. His father was a carpenter and joiner, and later in life a carriage maker, and the son early showed marked skill in handling tools. Specimens of his juvenile manufacture, exhibiting decided mechanical talent and ingenuity, are still preserved as keepsakes, by his friends in his native town. At the age of seventeen, Mr. Raymond engaged with the Massachusetts Cotton Mills Company, Lowell, as machinist apprentice, and after serving his time out, worked three years as a journeyman for the same Company. From Lowell, as we learn from a sketch of Mr. Raymond, published in The World, Toronto, in October, 1877, he went to Bristol, Conn., where, after a few years, he engaged in business on his own account. While thus employed his attention was called to the efforts of others to bring out a practical sewing machine. He constructed one for himself in the spring of 1852, and had brought it to a considerable degree of perfection, when the issue of patents to Mr. Singer led him to lay it by for a season and give his attention to perfecting machinery for...
