Misc. Notes
William1 Fifield (801); born circa 1615 in Littleton, Hampshire, England (Glen Fifield, onli ne, Glen Fifield (Utah), downloaded 5 May 1998.); married Mary (--?--) (802 ) circa 1644; died 18 Dec 1700 in Hampton, provincial N.H (New Hampshire Vital Records,: Ag e 80,-,-, New Hampshire Department of Health & Human Services, Concord, Merrimack, N.H.) (Geo rge & Melinde Sanborn, compiler, Vital Records of Hampton, New Hampshire to the end of the ye ar 1900 (Boston, MA: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1992), Page 120. Hereinafte r cited as Hampton NH Vital Records V 1.); Aged above 80 years. William immigrated from London on the ship Hercules, John Kiddey, Master, which left London M arch 24, 1634 and Southampton April 18 with 12 passengers. It landed Ipswich MA in April. H e became one of the original settlers of Hampton, NH in 1638 and died there in 1700 at over 8 0 years of age. Records indicate that he had the confidence of his townspeople and other tori es in settlement of affairs in dispute. He acted as Attorney, Constable and Sheriff in case s of record. NOTE: About 1652 Giles Fifield appeared in Charlestown MA, married Mary Perkins, moved to Ham pton. His descendants were relatively few. His daughter Mary was recorded in Hampton on 9/28/ 1659. While Sheppard made the assumption that William and Giles were related based on their c oncurrent appearance in Hampton, it is my opinion that they were not. NOTE: The Descendants of William Fifield published in The American Genealogist by Walter Le e Sheppard Jr provides the basis for information on many of the first 6 generations. Many o f the notes on these generations are derived from his notes. Some years of birth have been ex trapolated on the assumption of 2 year intervals between children plus correct ordering (no t necessarily a good assumption) by Sheppard. This file represents work in process and may well contain some errors. Further documentatio n for much of the newer original research is contained in issues of The FIFIELD Flyer, availa ble at NEHGS, New Hampshire Historical Society, the LDS Library in Salt Lake City plus a fe w other miscellaneous repositories. He lived in 1639 in Hampton, provincial N.H. He was freem an on 2 Jun 1641 in Hampton, provincial N.H. Mary (--?--) (802) was born circa 1619. She died on 23 Nov 1711. Quoting from The Batchelde r Genealogy, by Frederick Clifton Pierce, pp 115-116: "An indenture, made March 22, 1663-4, b etween Ruth Dalton, of Hampton, mass., widow of the Rev. Timothy Dalton amd Nathaniel Batchel lor, of Hampton, termed by Mrs. D. "my constituted heir." The consideration was 200 lbs, to b e paid to Ruth's assigns after her decease, 50 the first year and then 20 annually, and the last year 10. The property conveyed comprised all of Ruth's houses, land s, etc., except certain rooms in which she lived, for which, after her death, Batchellor wa s to pay an additional 15 lbs and to allow Deborah Smith, wife of John Smith, to occupy certa in rooms. The yearly payments after Mrs. Dalton's death were to be made as follows: The firs t year, 50 lbs to Deborah Smith, wife of John Smith; the second year , 20 lbs to Elizabeth, w ife of Joseph Merry; the third year 20 lbs to Phebe, wife of Thomas Arnall; the fourth year 2 0 lbs to Joseph Parker (Parkhurst); the fifth year, 20 lbs to George Parker (Parkhurst); th e sixth year, 20 lbs to Mary, wife of Thomas Carter of Woburn; the seventh year , 10 lbs to T imothy Hilliard; 10 lbs to Benjamin Hilliard; the eighth year, 10 lbs to Elizabeth Hilliard , daughter of Elizabeth Merry; 5 lbs to Abigail Ambrose, dau. of the wife of John Severans o f Salisbury; 5 lbs to Mary, wife of William Fifield; the ninth year, 5 lbs to Walter Roper o f Ipswich; 5 lbs to Hannah Willix. Batchellor was also to pay an annual rent of 10 lbs to Mrs . Dalton during her life. All the legacies were to be paid the parties or their heirs or assi gns. A codicil gives some furniture to Deborah Batchellor, 10 lbs to John Smith,Jr. and a tru nk to Timothy Dalton, son of Samuel Dalton of Hampton."
