Ambros Colby

He died on 2 MAY 1778 at Wiscasset, Lincoln County, Maine. Comment 1:
Ambrose was executor of the will of his father-in-law, B. Lawrence in 1740. Elizabeth was the daughter of Benjamin Lawrence and Mary Clough, of Charlestown. Mary was the daughter of John Clough, a taylor who became a freeman in Watertown, Mass., 05/18/1642. Ambrose's will, dated 2 March 1778, leaves his great bible to his grandson Ambrose; his looking glass to his 'beloved daughter Annah Hoyt and all other property to his beloved wife Betty. Upon Betty's death, according to Walker in "EMBDEN TOWN of YORE", this property then passed on to thier grandson Benjamin, who by then had moved to Embden, Maine.

Comment 2:
Ambrose Colby, father of Benjamin and son of Samuel, was born in 1700 in Amesbury, Mass. He was baptised and admitted to the church in Newbury on December 21, 1717.

He married December 22, 1720 Elizabeth Lawrence of Charlestown.

They lived in the latter town the greater part of the time until about 1740 when they moved to Pownalborough, now Wiscasset, Maine. In 1740, when he administered the estate of his wife's father, he is mentioned as of Sheepscot. In 1749, he and his brother Ruggles and his son Benjamin signed the petition to the General Court of Mass. asking for the incorporation of the town of Pownalborough. He was a blacksmith by trade.

His will is dated March 2, 1778 and mentions his wife, Elizabeth, his daughter Anna Hoyt, his grandson Ambrose and several children including Benjamin. The latter administered the estate of his brother Ambrose in 1766.

The census of 1790 shows that the widow was still living in Wiscasset, probably with one of her children as there is a male over 16, another under 16, and two females in the family.
