Note that this ancestry for Samuel1 Packard is conjectural. It is, however, the conjecture shared by leading Packard family researchers whom I respect, some of whom have been researching this family for decades. Contemporary records provide a mention in later life of all of the children of George and Mary (Wither) Packard except for their son Samuel, who is of the correct age and from the correct part of England to have been the 1638 immigrant to Hingham.


Samuel Packard Will

Samuel Packard the immigrant, early of Weymouth and Hingham came on the ship Diligence and ultimately settled in Bridgewater. He and his wife, Elizabeth ______ had numerous children. For Packard descendants, of course, his will should be of interest, but it is also interesting to note that she late in life married John Washburne, son of John and Margery Washburn and the husband of Elizabeth Mitchell, Mayflower Descendant. He died within a few years of the marriage, being then about 65. Note the interesting comment as it relates to a bequest for dau. Jael, current wife of John Smith, in which he seems to, but perhaps not necessarily, expresses some distaste for Smith. [4:2:96] (MD 15:4:253+)

On 29 October, 1684, "Samuell Packer senir of Bridgwater .... yeoman" made his will. Bequests were as follows:

"unto my loveing wiff Elizabeth all that my farm in the said Towne of Bridgwater which I now Dwell upon Containing" 36 acres "with all the houses Lands and Meddowes belonging to the said farme, During the tearm of her Naturall Life;" also "all my Share of Meddow Lying att a place in Bridgwater Called Bulls hole " for life; "end alsoe all my goods and Cattles" for life; also 40 in money for life.

He had an estate probated on 29 Nov 1684 in Plymouth Colony, MA.

Samuel (1) PACKARD(2346) was born about 1612 in Windham, England.(2347) History of North Bridgewater, PlymouthCounty, Massachusetts, From Its First Settlement To The Present Time With Family Registers. By Bradford Kingman. Published by the author, Boston, 1866

"Samuel Packard, wife and child, came from Windham, near Hingham, England, in the ship""Diligence," of Ipswich, John Martin, master. There were 133 passengers. He first settled in Hingham, Mass, in 1638; from thence he removed to West Bridgewater. He was a constable and tavern-keeper. All of this name who have gone from the Bridgewaters were probably descendants of his, and, in fact, nearly
all of the name in this country can be traced to that place. There have been a variety of ways in which the name has been written; namely, Pecker, Packer, Peckard, Peckerd; but the usual and proper name is Packard."

The above is basically reflected as the same in Mitchell's History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater, Baltimore 1970, Gateway Press.

He emigrated in 1638 from Hingham MA.(103) (2348) (2349) He died on 11 Jul 1684 in Bridgewater, Plymouth Co, MA. (2350)

Records show Samuel owned a grant of land in 1638 at Hingham. He removed with his wife, Elizabeth, about 1660 from Hingham to Bridgewater, Mass. with their twelve children, Elizabeth, Samuel Jr., Zaccheus, Thomas, John, Nathaniel, Mary, Hannah, Israel, Jael, Deborah, and Deliverance.

That he first lived in Hingham and lastly in Bridgewater is generally recognized, but most accounts have him moving directly from the former to the later. However, he moved from Hingham to Weymouth, where he was a Selectman from 1654 to 1664 and at least two of his children were born. He was still in Hingham in 1652 when his daughter, Deliverance, was baptized, but must have moved soon thereafter.

Samuel was not an original proprietor of Bridgewater, who were all from Duxbury, but he purchased land from them before August 1662, when he was appointed to a group to lay out highways. He was an active member of the town, being Collector of Minister's Rates in 1670, Surveyor of Highways in 1672, and Constable again in 1674. He was licensed to keep an "ordinary" (tavern) in 1671. He died there 7 November 1684, and his will, dated 29 October 1684

In 1667 he served on the committee to lay out streets at Bridgewater. He was made constable in 1664, and licensed to operate a Tavern--Hotel in 1670.

In 1682 he with four sons was named amoung 80 Proprietors of Bridgewater. Bridgewater was taken from Duxbury and deeded to Miles Standish, Constant Southworth and Samuel Nash in 1649.

All of Samuel's sons are said to have served as soilders in the Indian Wars of 1675 and 1676. There is a discrepancy in the records for Samuel's death date. Some show it to be 7 April 1684, however his last 'Will' was dated 29 October 1684. Others list his death date as 7 November 1684. Elizabeth remarried after Samuel's death, to John Washburn, 1685/6.

Text: "Samuel Packard and his wife and one child came from Windham, near Hingham, Corfolk County, England, to Hingham, in Plymouth colony, in 1638. He removed thence to Bridgewater about 1660. His sons, and probably he himself, were solders under Capt. Benjamin Church, in the Indian War with the famous King Philip, in 1675 and 1676. He had six sons and six daughters, vizs.: Elizazbeth, Samuel Jr., Zaqccheus, Thomas, John, Nathaniel, Mary, Hannah, Isreal, Jael, Deborah, and Deliverance. All his children had families. He was appointed to office in Bridgewater in 1664, was licensed to keep an Ordinary in 1670, his will was dated 1684, and it is supposed he died not long afterwards. His age was probably between seventy and eighty years."

For those who are interested in the earlier history of Packards in Britain, I have just visited the village of Stonham Aspal, where Samuel Packard, progenitor of the line in America, was born. It is important to note for anyone who wants to visit the area that the Packard homestead, once Colemans Whitsun Green, is now called Red House Farm and is currently located in the village of Mickfield about a mile from Aspal center. The ancient church, where the villagers worshipped, still exists and can be found near the western entrance to the village. Nearby is the town hall and the remnants of a medieval moat that once protected the hall of the local lord Roger de Poictou (later the land was held by the de Aspall family beginning in 1301). Nearby in the small village are the remains of a Roman hypocaust and the the Roman road that has since become the A1120.

Notes for ELIZABETH UNKNOWN:
Elizabeth Washburn to Indian Sam James (1694] (www.mayflowerfamlies.com)

This will concerns Elizabeth Packard wife of the immigrant, Samuel, who married Mayflower Descendant John Washburne late in life [Plym. Co. Deeds, 10: 1: 333] "Elizabeth Washburn Widow of the Town of Bridgewater" for 5 current money "paid unto me by an Indian known by the name of Sam James of sd Bridgewater" sold to him "All that my twenty acre Lot of Land being Situate within the Confines of
sd Bridgewater and at a Place called & known by the name of Setucket Pond and being about Fourty Poles in breadth and about eighty Poles in Length & on the Southern Side of said Pond It being the Sixth Lot from Pimkin Bridge of that Division of twenty acre Lots & lying between the Land of mr James Keith and the Land of Thomas Hayward Senr .... and I sd Elizabeth Washburn .... Covenant ., . . yt I at the time of making over & Passing away the sd Land .... Stood truly & lawfully Seized & Possessed with the Same .... by vertue of my first
Husband viz: Samuel Packard his Will"
The deed was dated 27 October, 1694, and signed by a mark, and was acknowledged the same day before Thomas Hayward, Justice of thePeace. It was witnessed by Samuel Packard, Thomas Washburn and Edward Fobes, and was recorded 22 October, 1713.

http://www.angelfire.com/ma4/oldcolony/genealogy/gentop.html (the following statement was made by Dale Cook dalecook_3@lycos.com.)

Elizabeth Stream. "Stream" is an unfounded (and completely undocumented) conjecture about her surname that was published years ago. This error has been perpetuated countless times in print and on the web.

This marriage is confirmed by a 27-Oct-1694 deed from Elizabeth [MD 15:251]. Note: There is no evidence to support the often repeated conjecture that her surname was "Stream." Elizabeth's surmane does not appear in any records and Stream was not a usual surname in East Anglia.

To "Wife Abigail Washburn all those goods she brought with her and all that she has gotten since, and two Cows, half the sheep, and all ye swine, and ye Iron Ketle; and the Improvement of my dwelling house & Barn & the hors ye one half of ye Cow-pasture above ye way, and of all my land below the way, and liberty to cut firewood on any of my land during her naturall lif as also my Bed and furniture I give her during life. and further I do Appoint my sd Wife together with my Cousin John Washburn of sd

The witnesses were William Orcut, who signed by a mark, John Washburn, Jr., and Nathaniel Washburn, Jr. On 4 December, 1732, the will was probated, all three witnesses being present, and a letter of administration was issued to "Abigail Washburn Relict Widow of the sd Deceasd & to John Washburn Cousin to ye Deceasd Executrs in ye Same Will named" [The will was also recorded, 6: 246]

[From the original inventory on file] On 8 December, 1732, Joseph Edson, John Kingman and David Johnson took an inventory at Bridgewater, of the personal estate of "mr. Thomas Washburn late of Bridgwater" The three appraisers made oath to the inventory on 9 December, 1732; and Abigail Washburn and John Washburn, the executors, made oath to it on 13 December, 1732. [The inventory
was also recorded, 6: 261]

[7: 376] On 16 March, 1737, an account was presented by one of the executors, and approved, but the name of the executor was omitted in recording. The entries "He died indebted to me for Eight Days Work" 1, 4s., and "Paid to his Widow" 3, 3s., 6d., show that John Washburn presented the account.
Payments had been made to "Doctr Ames" and Thomas Hayford.
