27 BETHIA EMERY m. 4 May 1681 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts [Kittery, York, Maine HENRY BODWELL s/o Henry Bodwell was born 17 Jan 1653 in, London, England [ April 1651/4 Bodwell Carneron, England].

One tradition is that he was a Scotch school boy named Bothwell, and that he ran away from home coming to Newbury, Massachusetts and was befriended by Rev. James Noyes. One account says he was 12 at the time which he would of came about c. 1664; he was indentured to a farmer at Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts and upon completion of service became a freeman.

The Bodwell ancestral estate was located near the tip of the Llyn Peninsula in Northern Wales. In 1656, Henry's father died, leaving a widow and Henry. The widow married again and oral tradition holds that the step-father sent Henry to America to insure that Henry would not inherit the property. The sea captain who brought him over robbed him of what little money he had with him and put him ashore at Newburyport, Massachusetts, binding him over to a farmer in Newbury, Massachusetts until he came of age.

He was pressed from Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts August 1675, to go against the Indian enemy, in Capt. Thomas Lathrop's Co. called the "Flower of Essex", King Philip's War. He was one of the seven or eight survivors of the battle of Bloody Brook, 17 [18] September 1675, which was located at the present site of the town of Deerfield, Massachusetts and was severely wounded. He had his left arm broken by a musket ball, being a man of great strength and courage, he seized his gun in his right hand swinging it around his head, forced his way through the Indians by whom he was surrounded (see also Bodge "Soldiers of King Phillip's War").


He was a yeoman.

Henry was a renowned hunter, marksman, and a terror to the hostile Indians. The Bodwell family was much exposed to the Indians who crossed the river at the fords, and making raids for cattle into the common lands or pastures, along the Shawshin, escaped easily across the river to their hiding-places. He (Henry) is said, on one occasion, to have shot an Indian on the opposite side of the Merrimack River, who, thinking himself at a safe distance, was making insulting gestures. Henry then swam the Merrimack and retrieved the Indian's possessions. (Coffin's History of the United States, p. 385) According to another source: Bodwell, taking a boat and rowing across, found the Indian dead, and secured his scalp and his fine wolf-skin blanket. (Historical Sketches of Andover, Massachusetts, S. L. Bailey, 1880, p. 122)
In 1678 Henry took the Freedman's oath.

He lived in Newbury until 1683, when he removed to Andover, where he lived until about 1693, when he moved across the Merrimack river to what was then a part of Haverhill, when his father-in-law gave him 160 acres of land at the confluence of the Spickett River and which was incorporated as Methuen in 1725. This parcel was bounded on the South by the Merrimack river and on the North and East by the Spickett River, and on the West by a line extending north and south between the two rivers where Lawrence Street is now. This property is currently in the town of Lawrence, Masachusetts.


Henry's second house was built in 1709 and remained standing until the mid 1970's. The following tells of the house: Henry's first house was built of logs and stood in the junction of the fork formed by the Merrimack and Spickett rivers. It was erected in the summer of 1693. A second house was built in 1708 upon the site of the log house. The new house was presently moved to its new location at 31 East Haverhill Street, Lawrence, and two additions were built on to it for the children as they married. "This house became known as the Old Elm Bodwell House. It takes its name from the elm tree that was planted nearly 200 years ago (from 1932) by an Indian to show his gratitude to Henry, who owned the property in 1735, and who had done so much for the Indians." (Massachusetts State History in the Daughters of the American Revolution, 1932) Another source states: "...the fine old elm which stands in front of the house was planted on the morning of July 26, 1729, by an Indian, who was rewarded for his services with a gallon of rum
. The chimney [was] of immense proportions, measuring twenty feet by thirteen at the base. It was built, it is said, in 1738, although bricks marked "1688" have been taken from the huge chimney. The [were] laid in mortar, made by admixture of clay and chopped straw. (History of Lawrence, Massachusetts, Maruice B. Dorgan. 1924, p. 16) In 1957, the town of Lawrence tore down the Bodwell House and removed the Elm which had died some years before. According to a next door neighbor, the town removed the house because it was unoccupied and was being visited by vandals. A plaque commemorating the Bodwell Homestead, is located on the site.

Mr. Albert E. Bodwell, wrote that the first house in which Henry lived on the Haverhill side of the Merrimack river was built of logs and stood in the fork formed by the junction of the Merrimack and Spickett rivers. It was erected in the summer of 1693. The estate included a tract of two hundred acres of land, bounded by the Spickett river on the north and east, the Merrimack river of the south, and on the west by a line extending north and south between the two rivers about where Lawrence Street is now (1905). The south part of the present building, at the corner of E. Haverhill and Elm Streets, in that part of Methuen which was incorporated as Lawrence in 1852 in 1852, was built, about 1708, by Henry, upon the site of the log house. The new house was subsequently removed to its present location, and two additions were built on to it for the children as they married.

The family tradition is that the fine old elm which stands in front of the house was planted on the morning of July 26, 1729, when Henry was born, by an Indian, who was rewarded for his services with a gallon of rum.

Bodwell's Falls (located in Methuen, Essex, Massachusetts) and Bodwell's Ferry are named after Henry.

At the annual meeting for 1716 several persons (including Henry Bodwell) applied for an abatement of the their taxes for the ministry, and the school, on account of the great distance they lived from the town, and the difficulty they met with in coming. The town (Haverhill) voted to abate Ĺ of their ministry rates." History of Haverhill, p. 237.

In July of this year (1719) Stephen Barker, Henry Bodwell, and others petitioned the town to 'grant or set off a certain tract of land lying in the township of Haverhill so that they might make a township.' But the request was denied." History of Haverhill p. 251.

Most of the above account of the family came from The Essex Antiquarian Vol. 9 No. 4 October 1905 pg. 171.

They were the next generation to occupy the John Emery farm on the Artichoke River the history as brought from the previous chapter is:
In 1642 his great grandfather John Emery Sr. 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.

32 SAMUEL EMERY graduated Harvard College, 1691. He went to Wells, York, Maine previous to 1698, probably as chaplain to the garrison stationed there. In the town records of 1698, he is mentioned as a minister of the town. 17 March 1701, the town voted to settle Mr. Emery as their regular minister and "to give him yearly 45 pounds to be paid one-half in good merchantable provisions as follows: wheat at five shillings a bushel; Indian corn at three shillings a bushel; rye at three shillings a bushel; pork at three pence a pound; beef at two pence a pound and to cut and bring to his house twenty-five cord of firewood and that he should have use of the ministerial and." A church was organized 27 October 1701. Mr. Emery was ordained 29 October 1701, the churches of Newbury, Dover, Portsmouth, and York being invited to assist. In 1716, the people being poor in consequence of the war, Mr. Emery relinquished all that was due, being a large part of the amount allowed him as salary. After this his people raised his salary to eight pounds and directed all mill rents to be paid to him and built a study for his use. The latter part of his life was disturbed by some troublesome matters. He was charitable and of a quiet temperament, performing his duty without ostentation, with zeal and courage fulfilling in an eminent degree the apostolic precept, "as much as you lieth live peaceable with all men."

her fatherís will lists her as follows;:
Caleb Richardson fourth son of Edward Richardson,1 of Newbury; born there, Aug. 18, 1652; married MARY LADD, July 31, 1682, daughter of Daniel ladd, of Haverhill.

He acknowledged, March 25, 1720, that he had received of his brother, Daniel Ladd, of Haverhill, full satisfaction for all his right and interest in ye fourth division laid out in Haverhill to "my Honoured Father, Daniel Ladd, late of Haverhill, decd." [Essex Prob. Rec., xiii. 327.]

He lived in Newbury, at least for a time, and made his will Dec. 4, 1723; proved Aug. 9, 1725; recorded Essex Prob. Rec., xv. 138. The witnesses were Benaiah Titcomb, sen., Benaiah Titcomb, jr., and Enoch Titcomb. The wife is provided for, but her name is not given. Ruth Emery, the eldest daughter, is to have three-fourths of his salt marsh lying at Blechford, on Plumb Island; the other fourth he gives to her son, Caleb Emery. Sarah to have all the right the testator had in Haverhill that came to him from his father Ladd. Ann to live with her mother; be executrix of the will, and to have most of the estate, paying debts and legacies, "she being lame."
Also is found where she had sold her rights to to a land grant due her father:
Caleb Richardson, son of the first Edward Richardson was one of the Narraganset grantees in 1735. Caleb Richardson, son of Joseph Richardson, had nothing to do with these grants. The origin of these grants went back to King Philip's War, when the colonial forces were preparing a surprise attack on the fortified camp of the Narraganset Indians. On December 10, 1675, in order to reinforce the courage of the participants, a proclamation was read, promising each of them a grant of land if they won the day and drove the Indians out of Narraganset. Caleb Richardson participated in the subsequent victory and was thus entitled to a land grant. Unfortunately, the colonial government was slow in fulfilling this promise, and many of the participants, including Caleb Richardson, had died by that time. In such cases, the oldest male heir of the grantee, or, if there were none, his oldest female heir, was entitled to the grant.

The grant of Narraganset Township No. 1, now the town of Buxton, Maine, was finally approved on April 26, 1733.

Caleb's daughter, Ruth Emery, sold her rights to Thomas Jillings of Newbury according to a deed recorded September 29, 1737 (Essex deeds v73,p261). The buyer seems to be the same Thomas Gellins who claimed the grant which was due to Caleb's heir, according to George Madison Bodge, Soldiers in King Philip's War, Boston, 1906, p406 ff.
