Descendants of John Emery chapter Two  

John and Alice (Grantham) Emery
3 ELEANOR EMERY was born 7 Nov 1624 in Romsey, Hampshire, England JOHN BAILEY ELEANOR EMERY was born 7 Nov 1624 in Romsey, Hampshire, England and was christened 7 Nov 1624 in Romsey, Hampshire, England. She died 23 Dec 1700 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts. m. 22 May 1640 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts JOHN BAILEY born 22 Jul 1613 Chippenham, Wilts, England and d. Mar. 1691 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts aet 78 s/o John and Ann (Bailey) Bailey. Ann was daughter of William and Elizabeth Woolfrey. He has also given as the son of s/o John and Elizabeth Emery [Eleanor (Knight)] Bailey.

The research done by Clifford Stott, a professional genealogist, was published in the American Genealogist in October 2002. He has learned that the Elder John Bayleywas not, in fact, married to Elizabeth or Eleanor Knight, but in truth to Ann Bailey, daughter of William Bailey and Elizabeth Woolfrey, also of Chittoe. John Bayley and Ann Bailey were married in July 1611. She was buried there in August 1659 having "steadfastly refused to join her husband in New England for two decades". It is not proven who either of their parents were

It has always in the past been given that John Baily Sr. had married Elizabeth Emery or Eleanor Knight; per the wording of John Bailey Sr.'s will dated 28 Aug. 1651 - styling John Emery Sr. as his "brother" - "I doe make my brother John Emery fen of Nubery and Mr. Thomas Bradbury Overseers". Thus his father-in-law was possibly his uncle and his wife his cousin; as "brother" often times was used in common with "brother-in-law". The question now in light of the new research findings given hereafter; would seem to be is why did John Bailey, Sr. use the term "brother" for John Emery, Sr, in his will?

He came with his father in Apr. 1635 in the ship Angel Gabriel, from Bristol and was cast away at Penaquid now Bristol, Me. in the great storm of 15 Apr. 1635. His mother, brother Robert and a sister never came with them and his father was afraid to go back and get them.

Came with his father to Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts in 1635 Selectman, 1670-3; jury of trials, 1675-6; chosen to carry votes to Salem 1675-6; took oath of allegiance and fidelity, 1678; chosen to serve on jury of trails at Ipswich; tything-man, 1679; way-warden, 1679.

In 1642 he laid out for him fourscore acres over the Artichoke or Raspberry River. Forty of these acres were a grant of the town of Newbury, Massachusetts to John Emery Sr. and by him given to his son in consideration of love and affection. The remaining forty acres were bought of Archeleaus Woodman for thirty pounds, being a town grant to him.

the emery house was built in1746 by Stephen emery Jr. grandson of John Emery and Mary Webster house still stands today and the eighty acres of land above still form the bulk of the property on which the house stands.

This tract of land has been in possession of the name ever since it was laid out to John Emery Jr.; it is now included in the farm of the late Eliphalet Emery, esq. of W. Newbury, and in 1890 when the Emery genealogy was compiled it was owned by his daughter Mary Hale Emery.

On 3 Mar. 1679 "The town of Newbury granted John Emery Jr. twelve acres of land on the west side of the Artichoke River providing he build and maintain a corn mill to grind the town's corn from time to time and to build within one year and a half after the date hereof." The new mill was needed because of the ever expanding population of Newbury and expanded into an area which was the Second Parish, and which is known today as West Newbury. The mill remained in the Emery family until 1761 when Jonathan Bagley of Amesbury purchased it from Stephen Emery, the grandson of John Emery, Jr.

This mill is was known as Curzon's Mill in 1890 and is still standing and known by that name today it is located at the east end of Emery Lane, on the other side of the Artichoke River, and is visible from the refectory of the Emery House and accessible by walking across the wooden bridge. The river was aptly named 'Artichoke River' because of the Jerusalem artichokes that grew along its banks. They were a staple of the local Indian diet and were adapted into Anglo-American cookery as well.

John Emery Jr. was a signer of the Woodman party in the church difficulties.

He is styled as Sgt. in the records. He was made a freeman 30 May 1660 [made free 6 Mar. 1653/4]; made his will 3 Aug. 1693. Newbury, Massachusetts He d. 3 Aug. 1693 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts

7 EBENEZER EMERY m. 21 Apr. 1669 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts JOHN HOAG b. 4 Jan. 1643 England or Wales bp. 21 Jan. 1646 Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts d. 1728 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts s/o Richard and Joan Hoag and came to America with his father's family when 7 years old. The rest of the family returned to Wales or England as it is said considerable property fell to them but to get it they were obligated to England; but John being bound out at the age of 7 as an apprentice to a leather dresser, was obligated to remain.

Ebenezer's birth is recorded: "Ebenezer a daughter born 16 Sep. 1648 being Monday morning two hours before day. Ebenezer hitherto hath the Lord helped us." Evidently this daughter was named from hearts overflowing with thankfulness. Though Miss Ebenezer might not have fancied her Christian name, I doubt not it gave her a puritan sire the keenest satisfaction.

Another account of her name is;
Like many Puritans, the Emerys looked to Holy Scripture in naming their children, and so out of a sense of thankfulness they named her Ebenezer meaning “the Lord has helped us” (1 Samuel 7:12). John and Alice were obviously thankful to God that they had survived the first few years in the New World, years that must have been full of hardship, want and danger. John’s wife, Alice, died a few months after giving birth to Ebenezer.

John was opposed to the Salem witchcraft. After the children were all grown up all the family became Quakers. He d. 1728 aet 85. and Ebenezer d. 28 Apr. 1694.
