    Emigrated on the Mayflower, 1620. Removed to Duxbury 1632. He was a cooper, and a signer of the Mayflower Compact. A protagonist of Longfellow's "The Courtship of Miles Standish", which may or may not be grounded in actual events.

    He was hired at the port of Southampton, but despite the strenuous efforts of many researchers over many years, absolutely nothing has been proved about his English origins.

    Deputy Governor of Plymouth, 7 Mar 1665 and 30 Oct 1667. Treasurer 3 Jun 1656, 3 Jun 1657, 1 Jun 1658.

    Revolutionary War: Private in Capt. Elijah Walker's company, Col. John Hathaway's regiment which marched to the Tiverton Alarm in 1780.

    From The Descendants of Richard Sares (Sears) (citation details below):

    Alden Sears, " yeoman," of Rochester, resided for a time in Nova Scotia, and was one of the grantees of the town of Liverpool in 1761.

    His wife dying, he returned to the States, living for a time in Pawtucket and Providence, engaged in boat-building and distilling.

    He had been previously a seaman, and is said to have commanded a whaling vessel before he was of age.

    Marrying again, he settled in Dighton, Mass., on the old Walker homestead, which, on the death of her father, fell to his wife. The old house is still standing, near 200 years old, and is a good specimen of early colonial times.

    About the commencement of the Revolutionary War he resumed his voyages, and in returning from the West Indies with a cargo of molasses was captured by the British, lost his vessel and cargo, and was held prisoner several years.

    An English officer, with whom he made friends, finally procured his release and supplied him with funds for his return. His wife is said to have had full faith during all the years of his absence that he would return, although others had given him up as dead.

    According to the superstitions of the times, there were many signs convincing to her that he would return.

    One evening in turning her tea-cup, the peculiar position of the leaves was proof that he was then on his way home.

    She rose hastily, saying: "Alden will be home to-night, and I must put the house in order, and dress and go to meet him."

    Upon opening the door, she really saw him in the distance approaching the house.

    They removed to Bristol, N. Y., in 1792, with others from the vicinity of Dighton. For his land he paid six cents an acre.

    He was in Capt. Elijah Walker's Co., in Col. John Hathaway's Regiment, and marched on "ye alarm of Aug. 2, 1780, to Tiverton, 18 miles' travel, 7 days' service, wages £1 8 0. Tiverton, 18 miles' travel, 7 days' service, wages £1 8 0."

    -----

    Note on the above: Alden Sears married his second wife, Phebe Walker, the one in the anecdote above, in Dighton, Massachusetts, 29 December 1769. So his first wife, Hannah Bassett, who died in Nova Scotia on an unknown date, has to have died before then. Therefore what he returned to can't have been "the States" as claimed above. No entity called "the States", United States or otherwise, existed in eastern North America in or before 1769.

    When Alden Sears went from Massachusetts to Nova Scotia and then back to Massachusetts, he no more thought of himself as visiting a foreign land than he would have thought that way of relocating to Connecticut. He probably would have considered Quebec a foreign place, because although it was by then ruled from London it was dominated by French speakers. But Nova Scotia was just another English colony in which most of the inhabitants spoke English.

    Alden married Phoebe Walker on 29 Dec 1769 in Dighton, Bristol, Massachusetts. Phoebe (daughter of Elnathan Walker and Bethiah Tisdale) was born in 1748 in Dighton, Bristol, Massachusetts; died on 23 Oct 1830 in Bristol, Ontario, New York. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

  1. 30.  Samuel Bradford Descendancy chart to this point (22.Gamaliel5, 14.Hannah4, 7.Elizabeth3, 2.Elizabeth2, 1.John1) was born on 2 Jan 1730 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts; died on 17 Feb 1777 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    "[O]ne of the Committee of Correspondence in the early part of the Revolution. He raised and commanded a company in Col. Cotton's regiment. By over exertion in the battles of Trenton and Princeton, his health became so impaired that he was compelled to return home, where he d. 17 Feb., 1777, ae. 47."

    Samuel married Grace Ring on 1 Nov 1749 in Kingston, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Grace (daughter of Samuel Ring and Ruth Sylvester) was born on 6 Apr 1730 in Kingston, Plymouth, Massachusetts; died on 20 Sep 1793 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    "He settled with his family in Little Compton in 1743, and his first three children were baptized there. He had a slave who was a hatter, who would go to Providence and work there at his trade. The slave helped to support his owner in his old age." [Little Compton Families, citation details below.]

    The entry for him in Little Compton Families, which calls him "Ephraim William Richmond", calls him a son rather than a grandson of Sylvester Williams and Elizabeth Rogers. But the entry for Judge William Richmond and his wife Anna Gray, including the passages quoted from William Richmond's will, makes it clear that Ephraim was their son, not Sylvester's.

    Unreconciled is the fact that Little Compton Families says that Ephraim Richmond was born 5 May 1723 and that his father William Richmond and his mother Anna Gray married on 8 Jul 1724.

    Ephraim married Elizabeth Cook on 19 Jan 1744. Elizabeth (daughter of John Cook and Alice Southworth) died in Apr 1797 in Tiverton, Newport, Rhode Island. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Mar 1841, Poughkeepsie, Dutchess, New York

    Notes:

    If she died in Poughkeepsie as asserted in the Stephen Hopkins Mayflower Families through Five Generations book (citation details below), she must have removed there very late in life, as the records of her pension application state that she personally appeared before the Plymouth probate judge, calling herself "a resident of Duxbury" (and "aged Eighty years") in Aug 1838.

    A typewritten letter from one Winfield Scott, Commissioner of the "Rev. & 1812 Wars Section" of the Federal pension office, to Mary C. Fraprie of Beacon Street, Brookline, Massachusetts, dated 16 Oct 1928, narrates Isaac Drew's service in the Revolution in some detail, and ends with the note that Isaac Drew's wife Welthea Bradford — who, the letter notes, he married "October 1, 1781", agreeing with the other genealogical sources cited here — was "allowed pension on her application executed August 16, 1838, while a resident of Duxbury, Massachusetts, aged eighty years. She died June 8, 1846." Which is entirely different from the information given in the Hopkins Mayflower Families book.

    The Mayflower Families books use the much-complained-about "giant block of citations" model, in which it can be very difficult to determine which cited source or authority attaches to which stated fact. Failing a specific reason to believe that Welthea Bradford died in Poughkeepsie — or in 1841, as asserted by Ruth Gardiner Hall (citation details below) — we're inclined to believe Commissioner Scott's report that she died 8 June 1846, even if he was writing over eighty years later. For the simple reason that pension offices are strongly motivated to accurately know when their beneficiaries have died and no longer require further applications of public funds.

    Welthea married Isaac Drew on 1 Oct 1781 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Isaac (son of Samuel Drew and Faith Petersen) was born in Jun 1748 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts; died on 3 Nov 1835 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts; was buried in Mayflower Cemetery, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Lawyer and politician. He was a representative of the town of New Haven in the State Legislature for seven or eight sessions, most of them during the war of 1812. The institution that eventually became Yale Law School began with him training legal apprentices in his law office in New Haven in the first decade of the 19th century.

    "After completing his studies at Yale [Seth Perkins Staples] began the study of the law in the office of the Hon. David Daggett in New Haven, Connecticut for two years. During this time Seth hand-copied a set of Tapping Reeve's law notes for his own use, but never attended the Litchfield Law School as a student (a common misconception). Once his understanding of the law was adequate. Seth passed the bar in Litchfield in 1799, and then immediately opened a law office of his own in New Haven and commenced practice. In that same year he married Catharine Wales Staples. During their marriage the couple had six children; three sons and three daughters, one daughter of which later attended the Litchfield Female Academy. The future Yale Law School formed in the New Haven law office of Seth P. Staples. Staples owned an exceptional library (an attraction for students at a time when law books were scarce), and he began training apprentices in the early 1800s. By the 1810s his law office had a full-fledged law school. Samuel Hitchcock, one of Staples' former students, became a partner at the office and later, the proprietor of the New Haven Law School." [Litchfield Historical Society]

    "The [New Haven Law] School began in the New Haven law office of Seth P. Staples in the 1800s, who began training lawyers. By 1810 he was operating a law school. He took on a former student, Samuel J. Hitchcock, as a law partner, and Hitchcock became the proprietor of the New Haven Law School, joined by David Daggett in 1824. (The Yale Law School shield, shown at the upper right of this page, shows staples and a rampant dog, representing Seth Staples and David Daggett.) The school's affiliation with Yale began in the mid-1820s and in 1843, the school's students began receiving Yale degrees." [Wikipedia article on Yale Law School]

    Notes:

    From www.ywcasf-marin.org/marin-womens-hall-fame/honorees/elizabeth-thacher-kent:

    Elizabeth Thacher Kent, a matriarch in the founding family of Kentfield, is one of the few Marin County women to be elected posthumously to the Marin Women's Hall of Fame. Kent was a distinguished proponent of women's rights and international peace and was instrumental in securing women's right to vote.

    Kent took up permanent residence in Marin in 1907 and immediately became a vocal activist in support of women's' suffrage. When her husband, William, was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, Kent leveraged her position as a Congressman's wife to support the national suffrage movement. She was a featured speaker at the 1913 and 1914 conventions of the National American Women's Suffrage Association (NAWSA) and shortly thereafter assumed leadership of their Congressional Committee. By 1915, she helped form the Congressional Union (later re-named the Women's Party), which picketed the White House in support of suffrage. Kent was arrested twice for her suffrage demonstrating. However, her cause prevailed and in August 1920 the Susan B. Anthony Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed guaranteeing American women the right to vote.

    In addition to supporting suffrage, Elizabeth Kent was committed to the cause of world peace. In the 1930's, she provided leadership to the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. She and her husband were also early supporters of the fledging conservation movement. They donated a large tract of land to the U.S. Government to preserve old-growth redwoods. Their gift, the Muir Woods National Monument, provides a lasting testimony to the Kents' exemplary lives of public service.
