In January, 1906, The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record commenced publishing the following article, which has proved to be of immense importance to the serious Rowley researcher.  As with all secondary source material, the data it contains should always be examined in light of subsequent research and additional primary records unearthed.  An excellent starting point.  The transcription below is broken in the same manner as the material was broken for each page, so that citations will be the same as using the original volume.

HENRY ROWLEY AND SOME OF HIS DESCENDANTS

By Homer W. Brainard, Hartford, Conn.

This paper was begun in connection with my work upon the families of Edward and Captain Matthew Fuller. The numerous alliances of the Fullers and Rowleys rendered this necessary in the early generations. The paper was not intended to include the generations now living, and makes no claim to completeness, even in the first five generations. I have not always been able to state reasons fully, but the original records have been used. In the few cases where conjecture has been employed, the doubt is indicated by" probably," or by (?.)

All the persons named in the article are descendants of Cap. Matthew Fuller, soldier and surgeon, successor of Captain Miles Standish, and Surgeon-General of the Plymouth forces. The descendants of Samuel Rowley (9) certainly and probably those of John (10), Jonathan (12), Simeon (35), and Issachar (36), by

the marriage of these four Rowleys to descendants of Edward Fuller and Richard Warren, of the Mayflower, are of the Pilgrim descent as well.

1. HENRY1 ROWLEY Was an early planter at Plymouth, Mass., where he was taxed in 1632. It is possible that he was one of the company that came over from Leyden to Plymouth in 1630. It has also been conjectured that he came with Mr. Hatherly in 1632. 1 have found nothing by which either conjecture can be verified. It is probable that he was married when he came over, and that his three children were born before that time. It has been declared that his first wife was Sarah, daughter of William Palmer Senior, of Duxbury. The latter came over in the Fortune in 1621, and his wife Frances came in the Anne in 1623. In his will, dated 1637, William Palmer names "Moyses Rowley (son of Henry1), whom I love," and provides for his bringing up, but does not state what relation Moses was to himself. Henry Rowley m. (2) Oct. 17, 1633, Anne, widow of Dea. Thomas Blossom, who embarked in the Speedwell at Leyden in 1620, but being obliged to return to Leyden, came over to Plymouth in 1629, where he d. previous to March 1632-3. Henry and Anne Rowley removed to Scituate in1634, the year he was elected freeman. Both were members of Rev. John Lothrop's church on Jan. 8, 1634-5, and removed with him to Barnstable in 1638. He was a deputy from Barnstable to the General Court of Plymouth at least once.

Thomas and Peter Blossom came to Barnstable with their mother, Mrs. Rowley, and were probably members of the family of their father-in-law. In 1650 Henry Rowley removed, with his son-in-law, Peter Blossom, to West Barnstable, and later to Falmouth. Henry Rowley d. in 1673. Inventory of the estate of "henery Rowley of Sacconessett," exhibited in Court, July, z673, on oath of Moses Rowley. "Item: a debt of twenty-nine pounds due from Jonathan Hatch upon the repurchase of a parsell of land which the said Hatch sold to said Henery Rowley with that limitation provided." Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. iii, part 2, p. 93. Children:

2 + i. Moses2, b. -----; m. Elizabeth Fuller.
ii. Joseph, b. -----; living at Barnstable, 1655; said to have gone to Barbadoes.
iii. Sarah, b. -----; m. April 11, 1646, Jonathan Hatch of Barnstable and Falmouth, b. about 1626; d. Dec., 1710, aged about 84 years. He settled in Succonnessett (Falmouth) in 1661, and his younger children were born there; Children:
Mary,3 b. July 16, 1647; m. William Weeks, of Falmouth; his second wife, according to Otis, based upon the mention in Jonathan Hatch's will of his dau. Mary Weeks. William Weeks m. (1) March 16, 1669, 0. S. Mercy Robinson, bap. July 4, 1647, dau. of Isaac and Margaret (Hanford) Robinson. It is thought that she d. early, and some at least of William Weeks' children were by second wife, but which ones is not certainly known;
Thomas, b. Jan. 1, 1649;
Jonathan, b. May 17, 1652;

Joseph, b. May 7, 1654;
Benjamin, b. Sept. 7, 1655;
Nathaniel b. June 5, 1657;
Samuel Oct. 11, 1659;
Moses, b. March 4, 1662;
Sarah, b. March 21, 1664, m. Nathaniel Wing;
Mercy, b. April 27, 1667, m. Nathan Rowley;
Lydia, b. May 16, 1669,

These births are recorded in both Barnstable and Falmouth records, and the two records do not agree. (See Otis, Vol. I, P. 467.)

2. MOSES2 ROWLEY (Henry'), b. probably before 1630; d. 1705, at (East) Haddam, Conn.; m. April 22, 1652, at Barnstable, Elizabeth, dau. of Capt. Matthew Fuller. She survived her husband and d. In (East) Haddam or Colchester after 1714. The earliest mention of Moses Rowley2 is found in the will of William Palmer, the elder, of Duxbury, dated Nov. 7, 1637, which is recorded in Vol I, fol. 28 of Plymouth Colony Wills and Inventories and has been printed. (See Mayflower Descendant for July, 1900, P. 147). "I would have myne Execut's as as in conscience they are pswaded out of the remaynder of my estate deale wth Rebecca my Grandchild and Moyses Rowly whom I love but not so as to put it into their father or mother's hands but p'serve it for them till they come to yeares of Discretion ……………also I would have yeong Rowly to be placed wth Mr Partridge that hee might be brought up in the feare of God, and to that end if his father suffer it I give mr Partridge five pounds." March 7, 1653-4 Moses Rowley was allowed a cow out of the estate of William Palmer, decease of Plymouth (Records of Plymouth Colony Vol. III, P. 45.)

In 1657 he took the freeman's oath at Barnstable. From that date until 1681 I find no sure trace of him. In that year he was a constable, and was occupying lands at Succonessett (Falmouth). He was a deputy to the General Court in 1692 under the new charter according to Savage, and yet he must at that time have been thinking of removal, for I find (East Haddam Deeds, Vol I, 554) that Moses Rowley, Senior, "late of Saquanesset, now of Machimodus in Haddam," bought 6o acres of land of Jonathan Gilbert, originally laid out to John Henderson of Haddam, deceased. The date of this deed is May 3, 1692, and there is another deed dated Oct. 4, 1693 which names Moses' Rowley.

An agreement of the heirs of James Bates of Haddam, dated Feb. 1691-2 refers to "mony in moses rowlyes and John Ackley's hands, to be reserved to pay debts with."  These records indicate that he removed to Haddam as early as 1691. That his wife Elizabeth disapproved of the removal is clear, for in 1714 she made a deed in which she declared that she had been left without support and dependent upon the bounty of her sons John Fuller and

Moses Rowley, and conveyed to them all her right of dower to lands in Falmouth, which her husband had sold to the Parkers without her consent. His will, dated Aug. 16, 1704 on file at, Hartford, Conn., reads as follows:

" The Last will and Testament of Moses Rowley Sen. of east Haddam in the county of Hartford in Colleny of Connecticut in new Ingland Wittneseth."

" In the name of god. Amen. Whereas I Moses Rowlee being


Page 60

weak of body but through gods good hand upon me at this present writing in perfect memory and understanding doe make and ordain this as my last will and testament."

"lmprimus: I doe give and bequeath my soul unto god in the name, meritts and mediation of the lord Jesus Christ in whose Righteousness I hope to be accepted with the father."

"And my body to Christian burial as my executors shall see meet, hoping for a glorious Resurrection at the last and great day."

As for the portion of this worlds goods that god [hath] given and continued to me my will is that my Just Depts being paid the Remainder to be disposed of as followeth: as for the Rest of my children I have done what hath been with me and now I have not expectation of being any more capable to help myself wherefore I doe give and bequeath my land unto my sonn Moses Rowlee that is to say my half of the lott I now live upon (the other half I have given allReady to my son Matthew) to be equally devided between my sons Moses and Matthew. I also give unto my son Moses that twenty five pound right that I formerly gave to Matthew, which my son Matthew hath lovingly Relinquished again to me."

"I give and bequeath to my daughter Mehitabell fuller all my moveables both flock and household stuff whether without door or within."

"I give and bequeath half my young mare unto my son Matthew. My will further is and it is upon the account of not only what my sons Moses Rowlee and John ffuller hath done for me and been kind to me but especially their willingness to take the care of me and my wife during our naturall lives and I doe expect that care and kindness of them that is meet and needfull both to myself and my wife and I therefore have done what I have done to oblidge them what I cane and doe Repose my trust next under god upon these my two sons Moses Rowlee and John ffuller for what I shall and for what my wife shall stand in need of between this and the grave."

"and I doe further give to my son Moses Rowlee my meadow lot and further be it known that my son Moses is to pay. My just debts and moreover my will is that all the above legacies given to my children is to them and their heirs, executors, administrators and assigns forever, furthermore I doe nominate, appoint and ordain my loving sons Moses Rowlee and john ffuller executors of this my last will & testament as witness my hand & seale.

3- Moses3 ROWLEY (Moses,2 (Henry1), b. Nov. 10, 1654, in Barnstable; d. July 16, 1735, at East Haddam; m. (1) Mary Fletcher (?); date of her birth, marriage and death not found; m. (2) after Feb. 17, 1714-5, Mary, widow of Samuel Corbe of East Haddam, who d. there April 10, 1694. She was the dau. of Thomas and Frances Crippen of Falmouth, Mass., and East Haddam. She d. June 9, 1764, in the 97th year of her age, according to her gravestone at East Haddam. The proof of the second marriage is found in the will of Samuel Corbe of East Haddam, probated Oct. 29, .1757 (Probate records at Colchester, Vol. II, p. 447), which mentions "Azariah Heath that now lives with me, who is to provide for the comfortable support of my mother, Mary Rowley."

In 1685 Moses3 Rowley, junior, aid of one of the constables in the execution of his office was struck by Christopher Gifford of Suckanesset "on ye head with a certain stick or club, thereby fetching blood and shroadly wounding him to his great hurt and damage." Gifford had to pay Rowley 20 for the wound, and other fines and costs. (Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. VI, p. 180.)

Moses3 Rowley took the freeman's oath at Succonesset (Falmouth) in 1690, and a few years later removed to East Haddam. He and his wife were admitted to the church in East Haddam, Nov. 12, 1704, the year of its organization. I found no record of the births of his children either at Falmouth or East Haddam. The list below is from his will (Hartford probate records, Vol. XII, p. 330), which reads as follows:

She conveyed all her right in her husband's estate to her son-in-law, Edward Fuller, on the promise of support during her life. Shubael Rowley was in (East) Haddam as early as 1693, for on Oct. 4 of that year he conveyed land there to "his father Moses Rowley, cordwainer, of Sockanesset in the County of Barnstable and Colony of Plymouth." On Nov. 19, 1700, he sold his Haddam lands to Timothy Fuller, of Machimoodus, and removed to Colchester. The names of his children are from the settlement of his estate (Hartford Probate Rec., Vol. VIII, p. 224). The older children were born at Falmouth, the younger probably at (East) Haddam. Children:

He held town offices: surveyor of highways, fence viewer, treasurer, selectman, but refused that of constable. He was a member of the church, and was chosen deacon, June 6, 1734, to assist Deacon Hatch; owing to bodily infirmity he was excused from this office, June 25, 1741.

His will (Barnstable Probate Records, Vol. V, p. 340) names wife Mary, sons Aaron, Timothy, Elnathan, and daughter Mary Weeks. The sons were to have his carpentry and husbandry tools.
