Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Rev. James Bayley was born on 12 Sep 1650 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts (son of John Bayley and Eleanor Emery); died on 20 Jan 1707 in Roxbury, Suffolk, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    "Graduating from Harvard College in 1669 he became the first minister of the parish of Salem Village in 1671. His wife's sister married into the Putnam family as did two of his own brothers, and he had the support of that powerful clan, but there was much opposition to 'settling' him, the parish controversy finally reaching the General Court. That body, overreaching itself, ordered that the church settle Mr. Bailey and pay him £60 a year, but this decision was ignored and Bailey retired in 1679. From 1682 to about 1691 he preached at Killingworth, Conn., going to Roxbury in the latter year and practising as a physician. He died after a very distressing illness Jan. 20, 1706/7. His brothers Isaac and Joshua came from Newbury for his funeral.

    James married Mary Carr on 17 Sep 1672 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts. Mary (daughter of George Carr and Elizabeth) was born before 29 Feb 1652 in Salisbury, Essex, Massachusetts; died on 28 Oct 1688 in Killingworth, Middlesex, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

  1. 4.  John Bayly was born about 1586 in of Bromham, Wiltshire, England; died on 2 Nov 1651 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    He was a weaver.

    From Stott (citation details below):

    On 23 September 1617, John Bayly Jr. was presented for possessing a crossbow contrary to the statutes of [Bromham] manor...Perhaps the most interesting entry is dated 4 April 1627, when the jury declared that John Bayly was "a common hedge stealer...And that Ann baylyes twoe daughters were also common hedgestealers." The meaning of "hedgestealer" has yet to be determined.

    John is last mentioned in Bromham parish registers on 12 April 1635, in the burial entry of his daughter Rebecca. If the family tradition is correct, John Bayly and his son John left England soon after Rebecca's burial, as they are supposed to have been passengers on the Angel Gabriel bound from Bristol to New England that wrecked off Pemaquid, Maine, on 15 August of the same year.

    By 1637 John Bayly, William Schooler, and others had taken up residence "beyond the Merrimack" in what is now Amesbury. Bayly built his home at "Sweet's Hill." Bayly's Pond at the foot of the hill testifies that he was present there. John was fined £5 by the General Court of 4 June 1639 for buying land from the Indians without authority from the court. The fine was remitted pending his forfeiture of the land.

    John Bayly was an original proprietor of Salisbury in March 1639/40. Most of the early settlers of Salisbury were Wiltshiremen. John received additional lands in the divisions of 1642 and 1643, and in 1642 he was granted fishing privileges on the Powow River. The Quarterly Court held at Salisbury on 24 April 1649 freed John from the obligation of bringing his wife over from England, "she utterly refusing to come." The same court freed John from military training, with John paying 5s annually to the military company of Salisbury. John moved to Newbury in 1650.

    John married Ann Bayly in Jul 1611 in Bromham, Wiltshire, England. Ann died before 27 Aug 1659 in Bromham, Wiltshire, England; was buried on 27 Aug 1659 in Bromham, Wiltshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Ann Bayly died before 27 Aug 1659 in Bromham, Wiltshire, England; was buried on 27 Aug 1659 in Bromham, Wiltshire, England.

    Notes:

    Bayly was her maiden name as well as her married name, but neither her parents nor her husband's have been definitely identified. Bayly was a very common name in the parish of Bromham and surrounding area.

    He was a carpenter and innkeeper in Newbury. In Sep 1646 he was fined for "showing attentions" to Bridget Travers, wife of Henry Travers, and was "bound not to frequent her company." He was constable of Newbury in 1655, clerk of the Newbury market in 1656, and a Newbury selectman in 1661. In 1663 he was fined for entertaining Quakers in his house; in the legal proceeding, a witness testified that "two men quakers wr entertained very kindly to bed and table & John Emmerie shok ym by ye hand and bid ym welcome," and that "the witness heard John Emery and his wife say that he had entertained quakers and that he would not put them from his house and used argument for the lawfulness of it." He was also prominent in the case of Lt. Robert Pike, refusing to recognize the General Court's authority to deprive the men of the town of the right of petition. Walter Goodwin Davis describes John Emery as "a courageous man who did not hesitate to back his opinions with action."

    Emigrated with his brother Anthony of the James, 3 Apr 1635. Settled at Newbury where he was a selectman, fence viewer, and frequent juror. Carpenter by trade.
