[3358] 1658, May 11. [Herodias Long] "being the mother of many children,"came with her babe at her breast, from Newport tto Weymouth, todeliver her religious testimony, for which she was carried to Boston,before Governor John Endicott, who sentenced her to be whipped withten lashes, as well as her companion, Mary Stanton, who came with herto help bear her child. After the whipping with a three fold knottedwhip of cords, she was continued for fourteen days longer in prison.The narrator (Bishop's New England Judged) says: "The woman came avery sore journey, and (according to man), hardly accomplishable,through a wilderness of above sixty miles, between Rhode Island andBoston."
"After the savage, inhuman and bloody execution upon her, of yourcruelty, aforesaid, kneeled down and prayed the Lord to forgiveyou."...
1665, May 3. [George Gardiner] was before the Assembly upon petitionof Horod Long, alias Gardner, his wife. She declared that when herfather died (in England), she was sent to London, and was marriedunknown to her friends, to John Hicks, privately in the under churchof Paul's called St. Faith's Church, she being between thirteen andfourteen years old. She then came to New England with her husband, andlived at Weymouth two and a half years [This would explain why shereturned to Weymouth to preach.], thence coming to Rhode Island aboutthe year 1640, aand there lived ever since till she came toPetacomscott.
Soon after coming to Rhode Island, there happened a difference betweenher and her husband, John Hicks, and he went away to the Dutch,carrying with him most of her estate, which had been sent her by hermother. (Her mother and brother lost their lives and estate in hisMajesty's service she says.) After her desertion by John Hicks, shebecame wife to George Gardiner, and by him had many children.Testimony as to her marriage to George Gardiner was given by RobertStanton [#3502], who declared that one night at his house both of themdid say before him and his wife, that they did take one the other, asman and wife. Horod Gardiner, having lived with her last husbandeighteen or twenty years, now desired of Assembly that the estate andlabor he had of mine, he may allow it me, and house upon land I mayenjoy without molestation, and that he may allow me my child to bringup, with maintenance for her, and that he be restrained from troublingme more." (1)
"George brought his friend, Robert Stanton [#3502], to testify that hehad witnessed their exchange of vows at his home thus establishing thelegality of the marriage. Because George was willing to take her backthe assembly attempted to pressure them to live together. Horod stoodfirm and refused again. The assembly chose to act upon the only pointin her petition, that her conscience compelled her to refuse George asa husband.
The Assembly chastised Horod and George severely for the "sinfulnessof their conduct," fined them 20 pounds each and told them tostraighten out their behavior. That done, the Assembly proceeded todeclare existing common law marriages authentic and the children ofthe marriages legitimate; and enacted a new marriage law requiringformal marriage in the future.
As for John Porter, he did not marry Horod until his estranged wifedied. The wife was ill and gossips laveled Horod an opportunist whenshe moved into his home to care for the household. Porter treated theGardiner boys quite well giving or selling them parts of his vastestate as did their father... (Ref: Gardiner-Gardner Genealogy byClara Gardner Miller and John Milton Stanton, 1937 and NarragansettHistory series, by James Arnold, ed." (2)
"Notes for HERODIAS LONG:
To give an approximate 'marriage date' for Herodias and George is notquite accurate.
Mr G. A. Moriarty in his article " Herodias (Long)Hicks-Gardiner-Porter A Tale of Old Newport" written in 1952,reprinted in "Genealogies of Rhode Island Families" published in 1983recounts Herodias' testimony in a petition presented to the King'sCommissioners in 1664 in which she asked for separation from GeorgeGardiner.
In this petition she states that shortly after her father's death, shewas sent to London by her mother and there 'taken on' by one JohnHicks 'unknowne to any of my friends', and there married in the underchurch of St Paul's, called St Faith's Church (London MarriageLicenses March 14, 1636/7). A short time later Hicks brought her toNew England when she was 'between thirteene and fourteene years ofage'. They lived at Weymouth, Massachusetts for about two and a halfyears, then moved to Rhode Island in about 1640. Not long after theirarrival in Rhode Island they had marital problems severe enoughaccording to Herodias 'soe that the authority ... saw cause to partus, and ordered that I should have the estate which was sent me by mymother, delivered to me by said John Hicks; but I never had it but thesaid John Hicks went away to the Dutch, and carried away with him themost of my estate.... Then I thought to goe to my friends but washindered by the warres, and the death of my friends. My mother andbrother loosing their lives and estates in his Majestyes service.....in which straight I was drawne to George Gardiner to consent to him.... for my mayntainance yett ... judging him not to be my husband,never being married to him according to the law of the place ......'.
The General Assembly took testimony from George Gardiner and from hisold friend Robert Stanton.
George admitted that they never had gone before a magistrate for amarriage ceremony. Robert Stanton testified that one evening at hishome, in the presence of himself and his wife, George and Herodias haddeclared themselves to be man and wife.
In May 1665 the Assembly decreed the separation of the parties,finding their illicit relationship had earned '.... the extremereproach and scandall of this jurisdiction ... '.
Also in May, 1665 Mrs Margaret Porter, the 'elderly wife' of JohnPorter presented a petition to the Assembly asking that her husband bemade to support her. In June 1665, Porter agreed to make suitableprovision for Margaret for the rest of her life. Shortly thereafterthe Porter's were divorced and John married Herodias.
The identity of Herodias' parents has yet to be discovered. Someonesubmitted a Long Family Tree (WFT Vol 6 tree #1512) in which theypropose a Robert and Elizabeth ___ Long, both born in England, bothdied in Massachusetts, as her parents. There are two problems withthis pedigree. First, they give the generally accepted birth year forHerodias, 1623, but then they give an approximate marriage date forRobert and Elizabeth of 1633, a full decade later.
Second - in view of Herodias' testimony cited above - she was sent toLondon after her father's death IN ENGLAND. Then, after Hicks lefther, she couldn't return home because of the 'warres' and 'My motherand brother loosing their lives ..... in his Majestyes service'obviously IN ENGLAND. It seems apparent that both her father andmother died in England, so the Long's who died in Massachusetts couldnot be the parents of Herodias.
Mr Moriarty's article also mentions the will of a John Aylesford datedJanuary 26, 1638/9, proved February 23, 1638/9 in which he makes asmall bequest to an "Odias Long'. This information comes from"Somersetshire Wills, Brown, 4th Series, p 58". Perhaps a thoroughsearch of Somersetshire wills from about 1634/5 to 1636/7 would revealthe will of a Mr Long in which he names his daughter Herodias - orHorrid or Harwood or Odias or any other quaint spelling of her name.Until that time, her parents remain another genealogical unsolvedmystery.
A gentleman kindly called my attention to this Gardiner information,on the Internet:
A Letter Lately Found Giving Some Account Of The Ancestry ofSunderland P. Gardner
I received,....... a note of inquiry concerning my ancestors.....Therewas a George Gardner in Rhode Island as early as 1662... There is atradition in our family that Mary Dyer was a relative, .......
[Note in relation to the foregoing letter, by A. H. Gardner]
Afterward he was informed that Mary Dyer's maiden name was Long, andthat she was a sister to Hored, who married a Hicks, ancestor to EliasHicks, and afterward married George Gardner, an ancestor to Sunderland- this was why Mary Dyer was called Aunt Mary in the oldentime..........
This is an interesting family tradition. However, we found a shortarticle from "The American Genealogist" #104, October 1950 (reprintedin Austin's GDRI) which states: William Dyer married first October 27,1633 at St. Martin-in-the-Field (Church), London, England, MaryBARRET. She was the famous Quaker martyr. Their son Samuel named hissixth son Barret for his mother's family.
We thought it strange that Herodias made no reference to a sister andbrother-in-law living in Rhode Island at the time Hicks deserted her.It would seem to have been natural for her to seek assistance of arelative who lived in the same colony. However, it appear that whileHerodias and Mary may have been "sisters" in a spiritual sense, bothbeing devoted Quakers, they were not sisters in the secular sense. "(3)
