This name on the early Barnstable records is written Eure, on the Colony records it is written Ure, Eue, Ewe, and Ewer. A Henry Eue was one of the first settlers in Sandwich. Dcc. 4, 1638, a warrant was directed to James Skiff, ordering him, to re-carry Henry Eue and his wife and their goods, to the place where he brought them. This warrant does not appear to have been executed, for in 1640 he was an inhabitant of Sandwich and had a share assigned to him in the division of the common meadows. Mr. Freeman's statement that he was the ancestor of the ,Ewer family of Sandwich, requires confirmation; because after 1640 his name disappears on the records. In 1643, there was a John Eue at Hartford; but it does not appear that he was connected with the Ewers of Massachusetts and plymouth.

"Thomas Ewer, aged 40, a tailor, embarked aboard the ship James, Jo. May, at London, June 19, 1635, for New England, with his wife Sarah, aged 28, and two children, Elizabeth, aged 4 years, and Thomas, aged 1 1/2 years. He had at least two older children, not named in the Custom House records, who came over subsequently, perhaps with their grandfather in 1638.

1. Thomas Ewer married Sarah, daughter of Mr. Robert Linnell, probably in London where he resided. It does not appear that he had any children born in this country. his children were
2. I. Sarah, born April 16-27, married, June 18, 1645, Thomas Blossom, of Barnstable.
3. II. Henry, born April 1629, married Mary  , he died in 1652, and it is not known that he left issue. His widow became the second wife of John Jenkins 2d Feb. 1652-3.
4. III. Elizabeth, born 1631, died in Barnstable, and was buried 9th April 1641.
5. IV. Thomas, born 1633, married Hannah,  , and died in Barnstable in 1667, aged 34.
Thomas Ewer settled in Charlestown, where he acquired some notoriety as a politician. In 1637 Lord Ley brought a


charge against him for using language disrespectful to the King, and afterwards he was prosecuted as one of the friends and supporters of Wheelwright; but he recanted his opinions, proving himself not to be so firm a man as his son Thomas. He died in Charleston in 1638, and his widow Sarah married, Dee. 11, 1639, Thomas Lothrop. Her family removed with her to Barnstable.

    John Lathrop father of Thomas


    John Lathrop was born December 20, 1584 in Etton, Yorkshire, England. It is said the ancestral home of the Lathrop family is Lowthrope, England.

    Hannah House/Howse was from Eastwell, Kent, England.

    His English residences included: Etton 1584 > Egerton, Kent abt 1610 > 1623 London >

    See the Yorkshire, England and Kent, England Home Pages for more details about the ancestral homes of John and Hannah.

    Take English ancestries of him and his wife with a grain of salt. I have not dwelled much in that area, but have done enough to surmise there is not unanimous agreement on either his paternal or maternal ancestry.

The Immigrant:

    "John Lothropp has been ranked as one of the four most prominent colonial ministers in America.  His spiritual and political strength not only was emulated by his sons and daughters, but has been evidenced in the lives of thousands of his descendants in the past four centuries They include presidents of the United States, a prime minister of Canada, authors, financiers,  politicians, and last but certainly not least, key leaders among religious groups throughout the centuries and spanning the continent. "  "Biography of John Lothrop (1584-1653)", by Richard Price

    Founder of Barnstable, Mass: John Lathrop and his followers initially settled in Scituate, Mass. But, their religious differences with the inhabitants caused them to look elsewhere to live. Although, some individuals lived in the area of Barnstable, Plymouth Co, Mass, the moving of John Lathrop and his followers to Barnstable is considered the founding of the town. He lived there until he died, in 1653.


    1) Hannah House/Howse, married October 10, 1610 in Eastwell, Kent, England. Eight children. Died in England before John and the children migrated. Eight children.

    2) Ann (___). This woman is not a Hammond, or a Hammond widow, as has been postulated. (See TGMB sketch on John Lathrop). It is possible that they married in England before immigration in 1634. Six children.

    Immigration: Immigrated, as widower, with eight children, on Griffin, arriving Sep 1634. Governor Winthrop's journal entry of Sept. 18, 1634: "The Griffin and another ship now arriving with about 200 passengers. Mr. Lathrop and Mr. Sims, two godly ministers coming in the same ship".

    See the passenger list of the Griffin.

    Persecuted in England:  "The Rev John Lothrop renounced his orders and resigned from his cure at Egerton abt 1623 to succeed Henry jacob as pastor of an independent colngregation was raided. [John] Lothrop and forty-one of his followers were seized and imprisoned, including Peninna and Samuel House, children of the Rev John House (NEHGS 69 [1914] :284).  In 1633, while [John] Lothrop was yet in prison, a dispute arose in his church. those who altogether rejected the established church and denied the ligitimacy of infant baptism were led away by John Spilsbury. John Lothrop's views were obviously less radical than Spilsbury's. Not only did infant baptism continue in his own churches in new England, but, as the above entries show, his sons Joseph and Benjamin were baptized at Eastwell in 1624 and 1626 respectively by their grandfather [Rev John] House, while John Lothrop was pastor of the independents at Southwark. John's eldest son Thomas was baptized at Eastwell on 21 Feb 1612/13, while he was curae at Egerton. (It was not unusual for the eldest child to be baptized in the wife's parish.)" The American Genealogist (TAG) Oct 1995 p251.

Notes, Questions, Errata

    Another Daughter: Elizabeth??  John possibly had a daughter Elizabeth whose birth was not recorded. From the court records of 1665 we find that "Whereas John Williams, Junr, appeered before the Court held att Plymouth the seaventh of June last past before the date heerof, to answare for his disorderly liveing with his wife, and his abusive carriages towards her both in words and actions, in speciall his sequestration of himselfe from the marriage bedd, and that notwithstanding the Court then tooke such order about it as was judged meet for present, yett the said Williams not attending that due reformation expected from him, wherby Mr Barnabas Laythorpe hath seen cause, in the behalfe of his sister and those related to her, to revive the former complaint, with some aditionall charges; to which the said Williams, though seeming to desire the tryall of such his guiltines or not guiltines might bee put on a jury of his peers, yett afterwards refused it when graunted to him by the Court; this Court, being earnestly desirous of a renewed closure of his hart and affections to his wife, and that his future conversation with her might bee better then his former, were willing to extend what lenitie might bee, and in reference therunto, with exhortation of him to amend his wayes respecting the promises, hee was released att the present". It seems that when Elizabeth became pregnant or bore a child, her husband John accused her of unfaithfulness. She was "by false reports and reproaches rendered as if shee were a dishonest woman, and that the child shee brought forth into the world was not legitimate". The court found no substance to the accusations and cleared her name. Source: John Lathrop (1584-1653) - Institute of Family Research, Inc., 1979.

    Who is Elizabeth [Scudder?], wife of Joseph3 Lathrop?

    Mary Scudder, wife of Joseph Lathrop - The origins of Mercy Scudder, who married Joseph Lathrop, seem to be in doubt. At least the information I have learned so far has not firmly attached her to a set of parents. See this GenForum Posting No 1 and GenForum Posting No 2 for more....

William Hatch

William Hatch, a resident of Sandwich, Kent, sailed for New England in 1635 on the Hercules. Upon arrival he settled in Scituate, where he resided until his death in 1651. He brought with him his second wife and five children, two other children having died in England prior to the family s migration. The town of Scituate granted him the usual course of land distributions.

Beyond these basics,William Hatch in some respects seemed to reflect the norm of the middle of the middle stratum. He became a freeman soon after arrival and served in several offices, including participation on grand and petit juries. He was, in fact, a little above the norm, in that he was in 1642 and again in 1645 Deputy from Scituate to the Plymouth Colony General Court, and in 1643 he was appointed Lieutenant of the Scituate trainband.

Were this the totality of what the surviving records had to tell us about William Hatch, we would account him a solid but unremarkable New England immigrant. But in addition to the details of his life which have been outlined above, we find also a steady stream of other notices of this man which tell us a different story.

The very first entry in the volume of "Judicial Acts of the General Court and Court of Assistants" of Plymouth Colony, dated January 3, 1636/7, was a law suit against William Hatch, instituted by Comfort Starr in a case of debt, the jury finding for the plaintiff This judgment in itself was not remarkable, but, as will be seen, was a portent of things to come. Barely six months later, on June 7, 1637, "whereas William Hatch, of Scituate, is presented for an incroachment upon a piece of ground on this side the river without license of this Court, it is therefore enacted by this Court that the said William Hatch shall reap the crop this year only, and leave the land, which is the mulct laid upon him for his presumption therein."

Not long after these events, Hatch returned to England, and then sailed again for New England on the Castle, bringing with him his brother Thomas and his family.While on this voyage,William Hatch formed a partnership with Thomas Ruck and Joseph Merriam to handle the affairs of the voyage. In August 1639, a year after this transatlantic passage, Ruck and Merriam sued Hatch, claimed he did "overreckon, misreckon, account short & mischarge" various items in the accounts.

Two years later, on September 7, 1641 ,Williani Hatch was accused of stating publicly that "the warrants sent from the governor were nothing but stinking commissary warrants.  Finally, on March 5, 1643/4, the Court took notice of a dispute between Hatch and his servant Hercules, regarding the length of service of the latter. Very few men were so frequently recorded in so many forms of disagreeable behavior. Even so, throughout this period, William Hatch continued to hold offices at the colony and town level. His peers and neighbors clearly valued his skills and abilities highly enough to set aside his apparent antisocial behavior, but he may have been skating very close to the edge.
