He "I. RICHARD was probably the ancestor of most of the numerous families of the name of Kimball in New England.
On the tenth of April, 1634,(*) O. S., at the age of 39, he embarked at Ipswich, in the county of Suffolk, Old England, in the ship Elisabeth, William Andrews, master, for Massachusetts, and landed at Ipswich in New England. He first settled in Watertown, of which he was a proprietor, in 1636-'7; was admitted a freeman 6 May, 1635.
[On the map in the history of Watertown, by Henry Bond, M. D., the homestead of "R. Kemball" of six acres where he first settled, is bounded N. by Cambridge, E. by land of W. Hamlet, S. by the highway, and W. by land of Edward White.]
(*) History of Watertown, Mass., by Henry Bond, M. D., but the "Historical Memoranda"
gives the time "last of April."
There came with him his wife, Ursula (Scott) Kimball, and seven children; also, at the same time, in the same ship, the mother of his wife, Martha Scott, who was born in 1574; his brother Henry, aged 44, and his family, consisting of his wife Susanna, aged 35, and children, Elisabeth, aged 4, and Susanna, aged 1 1/2 years. Besides the foregoing, Thomas Scott, brother-in-law to Richard, aged 40, his wife Elisabeth, aged 40, and children, Elisabeth, aged 9, Abigail, aged 7, and Thomas, aged 6, were passengers on the same ship. They settled in Ipswich.
Richard soon after removed from Watertown to Ipswich, and is first known as an inhabitant of that place 23 Feb., 1637-'8, when he was granted by the town "a house lott next adjoining to goodman Simons at the west end of ye town;" also granted him the same day "40 acres Beyond the North River near the land of Robert Scott." In 1639-'40, he had "liberty to pasture two cows free." He is mentioned "the last day of last month 1641," as among the commoners of Ipswich, and appointed, 1 March, 1645-'6, as one of the "Seven men." 19 Dec., 1648, he subscribed with others 3s. as his annual proportion towards the sum of 24oe 7s. as a rate for the services of their military leader, Major Daniel Dennison, then commander of the military forces of Essex and Norfolk counties.
His occupation was that of a wheel-wright. January, 1649-'50, he was granted liberty "to fell such white oaks as he hath occasion to make use of about his trade for the towns use." Also, 1660, "to fell 20 white oak trees to make weels for the Townsman their use." September, 1652, he and Robert Lord were appraisers of the estate of John Cross. In 1653 he was of a committee of three to survey fences in the common fields north of the river.
He was joint executor of the will of his brother-in-law, Thomas Scott, Sen., who died February, 1653-'4, in which instrument he is mentioned as brother Richard Kimball, whom he appoints, with Edmund Bridges, executor. Shortly after, 25 May, 1654, their official trust and obligation were recognized by Thomas Scott, Jr., then a resident of Stamford, Conn.
He married Ursula, the sister of Thomas and daughter of Martha Scott, before his arrival in Ipswich. Married, 2d, Margaret, widow of Henry Dow, of Hampton, 23 Oct., 1661. Margaret died 1 March, 1675-'6. Richard died 22 June, 1675, leaving a will dated 1674-'5. His age was 80 years.
The children of Richard and Martha [Scott] Kimball were,--
2. URSULA,(*) b. in England, d. in Salisbury, Mass., 17 June,
1658. (*) Mr. Rantoul, in his notice of James Kimball, gives Ursula as the oldest

there was a daughter
3. HENRY, b. in England, 1619, m., 1st, Mary Wyatt; m.,

After braving the dangers of the ocean voyage he arrived in Boston harbor, and from thence went to Watertown, Mass. He had left the comforts and ties and oppressions of old England to find for himself and children a home in the New World. It was to him a land of promise, a land of religious and political liberty, a land to which the longing eyes of the dwellers in old Suffolk were turning as fondly as did the eyes of the ancient Hebrews turn in their captivity to the promised land of Canaan. As the Israelites passed through the "Wilderness" and through the deep waters of affliction to reach their haven of rest, so these sturdy Puritans, with their families, with undaunted hearts, broke loose from the ties of friendship, left the graves of their forefathers, passed over the wilderness of waters and reached the Canaan of their hopes. An ocean now rolled between them and their early home, and in a new and savage country, and in another hemisphere, they started a new home. They helped to make the beginnings of a New England and lay the foundations of a rival to the Old England across the sea. They were of that Puritan stock which has in its turn made New England the mother of the great West, the sturdy stock which only needs to be convinced that it is right in order to do and dare all that is noblest. A stock that found a wilderness peopled with a few savages, a climate that would have killed a less hardy race, a soil that is far from fertile, and yet out of these untoward circumstances wrested success. They came when the throes of revolution were agitating the mother country, when the conflict between the adherents of the Established Church and the Puritans, between the King and the people, was at its height, and when the principles of civil rights and religious liberty were struggling for existence in England.
James I., after a feeble reign, had expired March 27, 1625. His son, the ill-starred Charles I., had succeeded him. Fires were smouldering in England which would soon burst forth into devouring flames. In 1629 Charles I. dissolved the last of three Parliaments, and for the next eleven years attempted to rule England by his absolute power. In 1634 the king made his journey to Scotland, in order to hold a Parliament, and by a statute compel the Scottish people to worship by Episcopal rule. A very difficult task, which no king, though backed by the power of the church, could accomplish. He made William Laud Archbishop of Canterbury, whose office was an object of aversion to the Puritans. Under his authority every corner of the kingdom was subjected to a minute inspection, and every little band of Separatists or Puritans, as their adversaries called them, was tracked out and broken up, even the religious ceremonies of private families did not escape the vigilance of his spies. Deadly hatred of the Established Church and of the king as its head was thus engendered in thousands of homes.
These acts rendered England so uncomfortable that the Puritans were compelled to seek a home elsewhere. They, therefore, sought a dwelling place in the wilderness of the new world, and they called their new home, in loving remembrance of the old home from which they came, New England. Here they sought the right to worship God unmolested by bishops. There was but little opposition to the first emigration, but three years later, in 1637, by an order of the king and council, eight vessels lying in the Thames and ready to sail, freighted with Puritans, were detained. In these vessels were embarked Sir Arthur Hazelrig, John Hampden, John Pym, and Oliver Cromwell, the Great Protector, who afterwards signed the death warrant of King Charles, in 1649. Such was the condition of affairs in England, and such the insults, persecutions, and wrongs heaped upon the Puritans in 1634, which the proud spirits of many could not brook, but in the wilds of New England they sought out a home in which they might be free.
The leaders in the exodus were many of them men of influence in England, and they brought with them many men of the middle classes, who were also tired of the tyranny and exactions to which they were subjected. To this class belonged the sturdy wheelwright, Richard Kemball1. He had a trade which would be eminently useful in the new colony. His services were in such request that he was soon called to leave his first settlement at Watertown and go to Ipswich, where he was given a house lot, and other privileges, on condition that he should be the town wheelwright.
Richard Kemball1 came to this country in the ship Elizabeth, William Andrews, master, in 1634. He appears to have gone, soon after landing, to Watertown, Mass. He settled in a different part of the town from that occupied by Henry Kemball1. According to Bond and other writers Richard and Henry were brothers. There is but little evidence to support this supposition, and it seems to be mainly founded on the fact that they both came over on the same vessel. Richard is said on the shipping list to be thirty-nine years old, but he was probably somewhat older. He was, however, in the prime of life, and soon became a prominent and active man in the new settlement.
He first settled in Watertown, and his home lot is thus given by Dr. Henry Bond: Richard Kimball, six acres, bounded on the north by Cambridge, east by land of W. Hamlet, south by the highway, and west by land of Edward White.
This lot was situated a long way from the centre of the town. It is now in Cambridge, which many years ago annexed the eastern part of Watertown. The lot was situated near what is now the corner of Huron avenue and Appleton street, and near springs of water.
He was proclaimed freeman in 1635, May 6. Was a proprietor in 1636-7. Soon after this date he was invited to remove to Ipswich, where they were in need of a competent man to act as wheelwright to the new settlement. Here he spent the remainder of his days. The town granted him a house lot, Feb. 23, 1637, next adjoining Goodwin Simons at the west end of the town. He was also granted at the same time "40 acres Beyond the North Riuer, near the land of Robert Scott." In 1639 he had liberty to pasture "two cows free." On "the last day of the last month 1641" he is mentioned as "Among the Commoners of Ipswich." He was appointed one of the seven men March 1, 1645. On the 22d day of the tenth mo. 1647 he was allowed two Pounds for killing two foxes.
His services as wheelwright were appreciated by his townspeople, for he was permitted in January, 1649, "to fell such white Oaks as he hath occasion to use about his trade for the town use."
December 19, 1648, he contributed with others three shillings as his annual proportion towards the sum of oe27, 7s, as a rate for the services of their military leader, Major David Dennison, then commander of the military forces of Essex and Norfolk counties.
In September, 1652, he was one of the appraisers of the estate of John Cross, one of the earliest settlers of Ipswich.
On the 25, day 11 mo 1652, he and his son Richard, Wheelwrights, "for oe14. sell 30 acres upland bounding on land of Mr. John Winthrop," also another lot of land of ten acres of "medow".
In 1653 he was one of a committee of three to survey fences in the common fields north of the river. His brother-in-law Thomas Scott died Feb. 1653-4 and he was joint executor with Edmund Bridges of his will. On May 25, 1654, their official position was recognized by Thomas Scott, Jr., then a resident of Stamford, Conn.
In 1660 he was granted right "to fell 20 white oak trees to make weels for the townsmen their use." In 1664 he owned 43 shares in Plumb Island.
Richard Kimball was of the parish of Rattlesden, county of Suffolk, England, as is shown by the following entry on the parish register:
Henry Kemball ye sonne of Richard and Vrsula his wife baptized 1615 12 of August.
Ursula was the daughter of Henry Scott of Rattlesden, as appears from the following extract from Henry Scott's will:
"To Abigale Kemball my grandchild twentie shillings to be paid at 21 to Henrie Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21 to Elizabeth Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21 to Richard Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21." He also mentions his wife Martha, and sons Roger and Thomas Scott. Thomas Scott came with his wife and children to this country in the same vessel as Richard and his family, and they brought Martha Scott with them. This will was made 24 Sept. 1625 In the 21st year of James of England by Henry Scott of Rattlesden in the Co. of Suffolk and diocese of Norwich. It was proved in the court of the Arch deacon of Sudbury 10 January 1624-5. As Thomas Scott settled in Ipswich this may have had some influence in causing Richard's removal from Watertown. Henry Scott was buried at Rattlesden, Dec. 24, 1624. (Parish Register.)
Richard Kimball married second, Oct. 23, 1661, Margaret Dow, widow of Henry Dow of Hampton, N. H.
(TEXT OF WILL WHICH I HAVE ELSEWHERE - WITNESSED BY PENGRY, DAY)
Moses and Aaron Pengry were prominent citizens of Ipswich. The marriage settlement of Sarah Pengry, daughter of Moses, is on record at Salem, Mass. She married John, son of Robert
Day, and three of her children married three children of Benjamin Kimball2 of Bradford, Mass.
Having thus made his will he waited for the coming of the messenger who would sunder all earthly ties and take him on his eternal journey. The angel delayed not long his coming. On the twenty-second of the following June the earthly pilgrimage of Richard Kimball ended, and, aged more than eighty years, he joined the great majority.
His wife did not long survive him, but died the succeeding spring, March 1, 1676. Richard Kimball1 was well to do for those early days. The inventory of his estate, which was taken July 12, 1675, and returned to court Sept. 28, 1675, amounted to oe737 3s. 6d. He had already given to his children at their marriages.
i. Abigail2, b. Rattlesden, county of Suffolk, England; d. in
Salisbury, Mass., June 17, 1658. She married in England
John Severans, b. (???), d. April 9, 1682, of Salisbury,
Mass., who is first styled a planter, afterwards a victualler
and vinter. She is not mentioned in the list of passengers,
with the others of her father's family, on the
Elizabeth. She was in the prime of life at the time of
her death. Mr. Severans married, second, Oct. 2, 1663,
Susanna, widow of Henry Ambrose. Mr. Ambrose, after
having lived in hampton, N. H., Salisbury, Charlestown,
and Boston, died in Boston in 1658.
xii. Elizabeth Severans3, b. June 17, 1658; m. 1686, Samuel
Eastman of Salisbury. Her granddaughter, Abigail
Eastman5, b. July 10, 1737, daughter of Thomas4 and
Abigail (French) Eastman, m. Ebenezer Webster and was
the mother of Daniel Webster6, the statesman.
2 ii. Henry Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, Suffolk county, England.
There seems to be some doubt as to Henry's exact age.
It is given on the shipping list as aged fifteen, in 1634.
This would give the year of his birth as 1619. But it is
evident that the ages on the shipping list are only
approximate. Henry himself deposes in court, Sept. 28,
1669, that he is aged 53. This would give the year of his
birth as 1616. But the parish records at Rattlesden are as
follows: "12, Aug, 1615 Henry Kemball ye sone of Richard
and Vrsula his wife baptized."
iii. Elizabeth Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, 1621. There is no
record of her marriage. She was alive in 1675.
3 iv. Richard Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, Eng., 1623; d. May 26,
1676, in Wenham, Mass.
v. Mary Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, Eng., 1625; m. Robert Dutch
of Gloucester and Ipswich, Mass. Mary is wrongly given
in many places as the wife of Deacon Thomas Knowlton,
historians being misled by her father's will, as he only
mentions the first names of his daughters and does not
leave anything to the children of Mary. But in an action
for trespass against Richard Kimball, Sr., (in taking a
heifer by his grandson Robert Dutch of the yard of
Obadiah Wood and detaining the same Mar. 1662), this is
shown to be wrong, Robert Dutch, Sr.'s wife was Mary.
Savage's Dictionary is wrong in regard to her name. It
says she was Mary Roper, daughter of Walter Roper.
But Mary Roper was born in 1641. Mary Dutch says in a
deposition that she is 36 in 1665, which would give her
birth as 1629. Samuel Dutch calls Caleb Kimball2 uncle
in deposition in 1664.
vi. Martha Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, Eng., 1629; m. Joseph,
son of Phillip and Martha Fowler, who was born in
England in 1622, and was killed by the Indians May 19,
1676, near Deerfield, Mass. He came to New England
in the ship Mary, with his father, in 1634, and
resided in Ipswich, Mass. He sold his father-in-law,
Richard Kimball1, forty acres of land in 1651.
4 vii. John Kimball2, b. Rattlesden, Eng., 1631; d. May 6, 1698.
5 viii. Thomas Kimball2, b. 1633; d. May 3, 1676.
ix. Sarah Kimball2, b. Watertown, Mass., 1635; d. June 12,
1690; m. Nov. 24, 1658, Edward Allen of Ipswich, Mass.
6 x. Benjamin Kimball2, b. Ipswich, 1637; d. June 11, 1695.
7 xi. Caleb Kimball2, b. Ipswich, Mass., 1639; d. 1682."130 He left a will on 28 Sep 1675 at Ipswich, MA; Estate of Richard Kimball of Ipswich

Children of Richard1 Kimball and Ursula Scott were:
201. Benjamin2 Kimball (Richard1);128 born 1637 at Ipswich, Essex, MA;128 married Mercy Hazeltine, daughter of Robert Hazeltine and Ann Langley?, 16 Feb 1661;128,130 died 11 Jun 1695 at Bradford, Essex, MA.128
He "6 Benjamin Kimball2 (Richard1), born in 1637, about the time that his father moved from Watertown to Ipswich, Mass. He died June 11, 1695. He was probably a resident of Exeter, N. H., in 1659, a carpenter by trade. Removed to Salisbury, Mass., and was on the trial jury in 1662. Was a resident of Rowley, Mass., May 12, 1663, when he bought land in Rowley of Elizabeth Starrett of Haverhill, Mass. At this time Rowley included within its limits the present Bradford, Georgetown, and Groveland. His land was in what is now known as Bradford. On Feb. 20, 1668, at the first town meeting in Merrimack, afterwards Bradford, he was chosen an overseer of the town. He was called of that town, March 16, 1670, and March 15, 1674. On Jan. 6, 1675, he and his wife Mercy of Bradford, Mass., sold forty acres of land to the inhabitants of that town for the use of the minister. On Nov. 23, 1667, he bought several tracts of land. Among them was land which once belonged to his brother, Thomas Kimball2, who was killed by an Indian on May 3, 1676. He was cornet of horse troops and was known as "Cornet Kimball." He and his brother, Richard Kimball2, were soldiers in 1683 and 1684, under Capt. Appleton. His house was in the west parish of old Bradford, not far from the ancient cemetery. He was a wheelwright and a farmer. He married in Salisbury, Mass., April, 1661, Mercy, daughter of Robert and Ann Hazeltine.(*) She was born 16, 8mo, 1642, and died Jan. 5, 1707-8. She was one of the first members received into the first church in Bradford, when she, with sixteen other women, were admitted January 7, 1882-3. Her will, made May 14, 1706, was proven February 2, 1707-8. She gives the names of her children in the will. His inventory showed that he was well off for the times. The total amount of the estate was oe1060.7s. Among the assets was a one-fourth interest in a saw-mill in Haverhill, Mass., near the Amesbury line, that he bought of Matthew Harriman. This interest was handed down
in the family for several generations. The gravestones of Benjamin and Mercy Kimball may still be seen in the cemetery at Bradford.
(*) Robert Hazeltine and his brother John were among the earliest settlers of
that part of Rowley that is now known as Bradford, and Roberthad afterwards
permission to ferry passengers across the Merrimack river. The first marriage
recorded on the Rowley books is "Robert Hazeltine and Ann his wife
were married 10mo 23, 1639," but her family name is not given.

204. Tamasine (Tamerson)5 Kimball (Job4, Richard3, Benjamin2, Richard1) Note that name Tamerson from Kimball Genealogy (no dates or spouse listed). Tamasine from family sources; born 13 Jun 1739 at MA;133 married Daniel Coit 1760; married Dr. Elisha Lord, son of Hezekiah Lord and Sarah Fish, between 1762 and 1766.
She Windham County graves have children of "Tarnasin and Dr, Elisha Lord" (I think the Tarnasin is just a miss-written transcription form the old gravestone and could represent either Tamasine or Tamerson). The Cleveland genealogy has Tamarson or Tamerson Kimball m. to Daniel Coite and subsequently to Dr. Elisha Lord. They had a daughter Experience Lord wh. m. Nehemiah Cleveland. The Kimball genealogy has a Tamerson Kimball born at the right time but no marriage listed (Job Kimball as father). There are marriage record listed for Tamasine Kimball and Daniel Coite for 1760. Daniel died in 1762.
There were no children of Tamasine (Tamerson)5 Kimball and Daniel Coit.
