Notes for Captain Simon Wainwright:
Simon, second son of Francis Wainwright, was born 20 Nov 1660 in Ipswich.  He is listed as a resident of Ipswich as late as 1678.  Soon after, he moved to Rowley, where three of his children were born.  In 1683 at its annual town meeting Francis Wainwright petitioned the town of Haverhill to permit his son to settle there and use timber to build himself a house and a warehouse.  This is, according to Chase in his "History of Haverhill" the first mention that can  be found of a merchant or trader in Haverhill.  In 1685 his name appears as one of the town Selectmen.  On 30 Jul 1694 he was appointed to the first Board of Assessors in that  town.   He was active in the town's militia, attaining the rank of Captain. In 1687, Simon purchased property opposite what is now the Winter Street Church and built his house. According to town records, this house was used as a garrison against Indian attacks.  He also owned the land behind and to the west of the Burying Ground.

Simon Wainwright was killed during an Indian raid on Haverhill on 29 August 1708.  His house was used as a military garrison during the raid which occurred as a consequence of the French and Indian War.

Chase, in his "History of Haverhill" describes what happened:

 

"...Another [Indian] party went to the house of Captain Simon Wainwright, whom they killed at the first fire. The soldiers stationed in the chambers were preparing to defend the house until the last, when Mrs. Wainwright, (nee Mary Silver) fearlessly unbarred the door and let them in. She spoke to the Indians kindly, waited upon them with seeming alacrity, and promises to procure them whatever they desired.  The enemy knew not what to make of this, the apparent cheerfulness with which they were received, and the kindness with which they were treated was so different from what they expected to meet with that it seemed to paralyze their energies.  They, however, demanded money of Mrs Wainwright and, upon her retiring to bring it, as she said, she fled with all her children except one daughter, who was taken prisoner and were not afterward discovered"

This daughter was carried to Canada.  In 1710, Mary Wainwright petitioned the General Court to redeem her:

                                          


Haverhill, 29th April, 1710

 

       "To his Excellency, Joseph Dudley, Captain-General and Governor in Chief etc. etc. to the Honorable Council and General Assembly now meet: The petition of Mary Wainwright sheweth that, whereas my daughter hath been, for a long time in captivity of the French in Canada, and I have late reason to fear that her soul is in great danger if not already captivated and she brought to their way; therefore I humbly intreate your Excellency, that some care may be taken for her redemption before Canada be so endeared to her that I shall never have my daughter more.  Some are ready to say that there are so few captives in Canada that it is not worthwhile to put the country to the charges for them; but I hope your Excellency, nor any other good, judicious man will think so; for St. James has instructed us, as you may see, chapter 5:v, 20, 'Let him know that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall have a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.' This is all I can do at present.  I desire humbly to beg of God that he would direct the hearts of our rulers to do that which may be most for His glory and for the good of His poor, distressed creatures, and so I take leave to subscribe myself your most humble petitioner

 

 

                                               "Widow Mary Wainwright"

 

The list of captives returned to the General Court in 1710-1, as contained in the Colonial Records of Massachusetts includes Mary Silver of Haverhill.

Simon Wainwright is buried in the old Haverhill Burial Ground on  Water Street.  His stone is located on the east side along the wall.

The inscription reads as follows:

              "Here lyes buried ye body
              of Capt. Simon Wainwright
              Esq. who was barbarously
              slaine by ye French &
              Indian enemie on August
              ye 29, 1708 aegis 50y.

Simon is also  mentioned on an obelisk, located to the west of the tombstone, commemorating the Indian raid. 

His son John, aged 18 at Simon's death, came under the legal guardianship of Stephen Sewall (Essex #28678).  This was discharged on 19 Mar 1713-14.  His wife, Mary, subsequently married Sgt. John Boynton on 19 Feb 1718-9.

Simon died intestate.  His probate record (Essex #28692) shows an inventory   totaling some 763 Pounds.  Included, however, was a substantial amount in notes due which were apparently destroyed in the burning of Simon’s house during the raid.  Consequently, the executers had considerable trouble collecting on these debts.  On 24 Oct 1710, a petition was filed with the General Court to remedy this:

"To  his  Excellency,  Joseph Dudley, esqr., Governr: The honble ye Council & House of Representatives of her Majtys Province of the Massachtts Bay, in General Court Assembled 24th Octobr 1710.

 

"The petition of Stephen Sewell, Guardn to JohnWainwright, Minor, onely Son of Capt. Simon Wainwright, late of Haverhill, deced on behalfe of sd John Wainwright & others Concerned in the Estate of ye Deced

 

"Humbly sheweth

 

"That, whereas, at the time of the Attack made upon the Town of Haverhill by the French & Indians in the year 1708,Amongst other of the  Outrages and Desolations then committed, the sd Captain Wainwright was slain & his house burn'd, with all its books,most of his Bonds, Writings, & Papers whereby the Petr, with Lt. Col. Saltonstal, Adminrs, are made uncapable  of Takeing the Ordinary Process of Law, for ye obtaining & recovery of many well known, honest, and just debts of Very Considerable Value, to the Extreem Loss & Damage of  the  Orphants & others interested in the Estate.

Some evil-minded Debtors, takeing  Advantage thereof to withhold what they justly owe.  Yor Petr therefore on behalfe of ye sd Minor & others interested, humbly prays that your Excy  &  honours  would please to Appoint, two or more of the Justices of the Inferior Court within the County of Essex, or Such other persons as you may think fit, to be Commissioners, with power to Call before them all persons indebted to the sd Estate, and to require and Administer an Oath to them,referring to ye Debts they respectively Owe, both as to Quantity  and Specie of payment; The sd Commissioners to make a report of their doings therein from time to time to the Govr & Council That so the necessary further Directions may be given therein, as has formerly been done by this honble Court, in a Case of like nature Or that Such other ways and Methods may be Directed as in yor Excy & Honours Wisdom shall be thought proper for Enabling the Adminrs  to Demand & recover the just Debts oweing to ye sd Estate.

 

             "And yor Petr shall ever pray &c.

 

 

                                                      "Stephen Sewall"

 

This petition was read and ordered on 9 Nov 1710. 

Simon Wainwright was supposed, at the time of his death, to be very rich.  There was a traditional story which circulated in the 19th century in Haverhill that he had a large chest filled with dollars and that he once wagered a man the entire contents of the chest if he could extract one of the dollars with his fingers.  The man "pulled and tugged" with all his strength but could not budge one of the coins.

Legend has it that Simon Wainwright buried most of his money, and a part of a field south of his house lot on Winter Street was dug over in 1861 in an unsuccessful attempt to find it. A site near the Little River was also dug over twice for the same reason and with the same results.

Generation No. 4

      30.  John4 Wainwright (Anne3 Pierce, Daniel2, Daniel1) was born 30 October 1690 in Haverhill, Essex County Massachusetts110, and died 04 October 1721 in Haverhill, Essex County Massachusetts111.  He married Hannah Redford 30 April 1712 in South Berwick (Kittery), York County Maine, daughter of William Redford and Sarah Frost.  She was born Abt. 1691 in Portsmouth, Rockingham County New Hampshire.

Notes for John Wainwright:
John graduated from Harvard College in 1709. 

John Wainwright was drowned on 4 Oct 1721 while aboard a Rhode Island Sloop carrying oak planking.  Hannah married once more sometime before 1724 to John Pecker.   Hannah, the youngest daughter of John and Hannah married Grant Webster on 21 May 1739.  The remaining children of this family are not accounted for in the Massachusetts records.  Probably the daughters married in their husband's towns in other states.

His will (Essex 28679) shows that he died insolvent, owing over 36 Pounds.  One of his creditors, John Pecker, eventually married his wife Hannah.  Moses Hale, his Brother-in-Law and husband of his sister Abigail Wainwright, acted as administrator112.

Included in his effects was a "negro maid servant named Hagen" whose worth was listed as 19 Pounds.

Notes for Hannah Redford:
After the death of John, Hannah married John Pecker.  On 14 October, court records show that she is has a legacy from her aunt Abigail Moody from Newbury. 

According to the "Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire" (Noyes, Libby, Davis), Hannah is mentioned as Mrs. Hannah Bradford in the will of her step Mother, Elizabeth (Dew) Wibird, dated 1 May 1739. However, Hannah had wed as her second husband John Pecker, an Inn Holder, of Boston about 1724 and was with him in Boston as late as 1731.  John is recorded in Deed Transfers as late as 1741, and so there is a discrepancy in recordings, or else there are two Hannah Redfords.

Haverhill Vital Records clearly indicate that

1.  John Wainwright married Mrs. Hannah Redford before 1713. (2:316)
2.  Capt. John Wainwright, husband of Hannah (Redford) drowned on 4 October 1721. (2:482)
3.   Hannah Wainwright, widow, married John Pecker before 1724 (2:316).  This is confirmed by Newbury VRs, with the addition of a date of 4 April 1723 (2:499).
4.  John Pecker and Hannah Wainwright have 10 children recorded in Haverhill between 7 January 1723/24 and 7 November 1736 (1:247-249)

The Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire (GDMNH) clearly states that:

1.  Hannah Redford, daughter of Hon. William Redford and Sarah Frost married John Wainwright 30 April 1712 (p 579)
2.  Hannah Redford married second Mathew Bradford (p579, see also p105)
3.  Mrs. Hannah Bradford is mentioned in the will of her step mother Elizabeth (Dew) Wibird dated 1 May 1739 (p751)

"Inhabitants and Estates of the Town of Boston 1630-1800 (Thwing Index) clearly states (Reference 48997):
1.  John Pecker and Hannah Wainwright of Newbury filed an intention to be married in Boston  on 13 March 1722/23.
2.  John and his wife jointly participate in three real estate transactions in 1730 and 1731 around Hull Street in the North End section of Boston.
3.  Starting in 1740, John's real estate transactions stop mentioning his wife.

Since John Pecker was still actively dealing in real estate in Boston as late as 1741, it would not have been possible for Hannah to have been married to Mathew Bradford in 1739 (unless she had divorced John, an occurrence that was quite rare at this time in the Colony).

The will of Richard Wibird, proved 25 April 1733, mentions "his Good firend, Hannah Bradford, wife of Mr. Mathew Bradford" and gives her 10 Pounds.  The will of his wife Elizabeth, proved 23 February 1742/3 bequeaths Mrs. Hannah Bradford 12 Pounds.  Nowhere in either will is Hannah mentioned as a kin of any kind113,114.  I am forced to conclude, therefore, that the Hannah Bradford mentioned in the will of Elizabeth Wibird was not the former Hannah Redford, but another individual.  I need to study the text of this will carefully, and verify other records of New Hampshire to verify this.

Marriage Notes for John Wainwright and Hannah Redford:
John and Hannah were married by Rev. Jeremiah Wise, half brother-in-law of Hannah.
     
Children of John Wainwright and Hannah Redford are:

i.

Ann5 Wainwright, born 11 February 1712/13 in Haverhill, Essex County Massachusetts115.  She married Rev. James Cushing Bef. 1737 in Haverhill, Essex County Massachusetts116.

Notes for Abigail Wainwright:
At the time of Capt. John Wainwright's death, Abigail was 9 years old. On 14 October, 1723 John Pecker was made guardian of Abigail (Essex 28670).  Shortly thereafter, he married Hannah Wainwright, her mother. This guardianship was discharged on 3/31/1735.

On 22 March1731/32 she acknowledged receipt of 88 Pounds, 4 shillings cash from John Pecker.

 

73

iii.

Redford Wainwright, born 23 June 1717 in Haverhill, Essex County Massachusetts119; died Bef. 09 June 1746 in Newbury, Essex County Massachusetts.

Notes for Redford Wainwright:
Redford occupies my attention as he is the only male child of John Wainwright and Hannah Redford and as such is the only Wainwright family member who could have fathered Thomas Wainwright of Portsmouth.  There are no records extant that document this fact, but geographic proximity and the extremely complicated intermarriages of the family at this time suggest the possibility of a rogue family line.

According to his estate papers, Redford had an interest in 500 Acres once owned by his father John.  Even with this, however, he died insolvent and without a wife or children.  Grant Webster, Redford's brother-in-law and husband of Hannah Wainwright acted as his administrator120.

      74.  Mehitabel5 Wainwright (John4, Anne3 Pierce, Daniel2, Daniel1) was born 12 July 1719 in Haverhill, Essex County Massachusetts186, and died 20 November 1781 in Hampton Falls New Hampshire.  She married Meshech Weare 04 December 1746 in Hampton Falls, Rockingham County New Hampshire.  He was born 16 January 1712/13 in Hampton, Rockingham County New Hampshire, and died 14 January 1786 in Hampton Falls, Rockingham County New Hampshire.

Mehitabel Wainwright is listed in the wills of Richard Wibird (4/25/1733) and his wife Elizabeth (2/23/1742-3 of Portsmouth, NH).  Richard lists her as a minor child, while Elizabeth does not187.

Mehitable is mentioned in the many biographical sketches of her husband, but nothing is documented about her lineage.  The basis of her inclusion in this genealogy is entirely circumstantial.
