Notes for Stephen Knutsford:

Solley writes that, as far as he can tell, every individual by the name of Knutsford living in America in 1924 can trace his family back to Stephen Knutsford.  Today, it is believed that there are only one hundred sixty or so individuals with this surname living around the world.

Stephen (or Thomas) Knutsford of Rockport, Essex County Massachusetts is the subject of a famous Cape Ann story.  Pool wrote several times in his "Papers" about Thomas Knutsford and how he came to be a citizen of Rockport- that was a member of the crew of a Brig that sailed from Nova Scotia in 1775, loaded with cattle for the British soldiers occupying Boston. She was taken by an armed contingent of militia under Capt. John Rowe between Straitsmouth and Thatcher’s Island. Once the ship was brought ashore, Thomas fled and hid for some time.

Pool's story is based on fact.  The brig “Dolphin" was captured in September of 1775, the first of many such maritime actions on Cape Ann during the Revolutionary War.  It was bound for Boston Massachusetts from Quebec with a cargo of sheep and oxen, the gift of the Governor of Canada for his friend General Gage. The cargo was unloaded in Rockport, and the Captain, crew and passengers were allowed safe passage to the British positions in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts.  The ship was afterwards brought to Gees Point in the Anisquam River where she accidentally sank. Her ribbing was visible a hundred years later.  Pool says that Stephen's son Thomas disagreed with his account of his father's revolutionary war exploits.

Another story, recounted by several Cape Ann writers indicates that Lieutenant Stephen Knutsford, the second son of Lord Knutsford of Ireland, served under British General Burgoyne during the Battle of Saratoga.  He was aboard a ship returning home with the General when he was cast off or swept overboard off Andrews Point in 1778.  This version is allegedly supported by a deposition made by Knutsford in 1805 and on file in the City of Gloucester.  This deposition remains undiscovered in Gloucester archives.

Stephen Knutsford was warned out of the Town of Gloucester along with his wife and family on 15 August 1790, on the same warrant as Thomas Wainwright14.

Stephen made his home west of Pigeon Hill, Rockport in a House still standing today.  Throughout his life, he was very secretive about his former life and rank, due to the fact that he had been born in Ireland and was still, according to the British, subject to British law.  He was a schoolmaster for several winters, suggesting that he was formally educated.  He was by all accounts a lovable man, a good conversationalist, and possessed a beautiful writing hand.

The death record of his son Thomas indicates that his father was born in Liverpool England.

Although he is called Stephen Knutsford in the Gloucester Vital Records, Ebenezer Pool refers to him both as Stephen and Thomas.  As he named his first born son Thomas instead of Stephen, we are left to wonder what this man's real name was, and why he might have changed it.  Perhaps he decided to use a different name as an alias when he escaped his captors in 1775.
