---------------------------------
William P. Colby, a retired litterateur, who is now residing in Merrimac, was born in West Amesbury on October 23, 1821. A son of Joshua Colby, he is a descendant in the eighth generation of Anthony Colby, who accompanied Governor Winthrop to Salisbury in 1638 (note: 1630). The line of descent is traced directly from Anthony, through Samuel (first), Samuel (second), Samuel (third), Barzilla, and Joshua (first), Joshua (second), William P. Colby's father. The family has furnished governors to both Maine and New Hampshire.

Barzilla Colby served as a minute-man in 1776. William Williams, the father of William P. Colby's grandmother, was prominent among the New Hampshire patriots during the struggle for independence. Joshua Colby (second), was a prosperous carriage manufacturer of Amesbury. For upward of twenty years he served as a Selectman, represented his district in the State Legislature, and was a member of Governor Marcus Motton's Council in 1843. In the capacity of Justice of the Peace he transacted much legal business, including the settlement os estates. When he died in 1881 he was eight-six years old. He married a daughter of William Pecker, a well known pottery manufacturer in this locality.

William P. Colby is indebted for his early education to both the Kingston and Andover academies. After preparing himself for the ministry, he labored as a Universalist preacher for ten years. Subsequently he served to three years in the Civil War as chaplain of the Seventeenth Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers. After the war he engaged in literary work in Boston. Being a versatile writer, he found constant and lucrative employment until about 1880, when he was summoned home by the illness of his father. The latter left him a comfortable estate, upon which he has since lived in retirement, but keeping in touch with current events.

Mr. Colby's wife, who was a daughter of Samuel Bancroft, of West Amesbury, died on April 29, 1859. She was the mother of three children, one of whom died in infancy. The others were: Joshua Harlan, who was the proprietor of a hotel at Salisbury Beach, and died at the age of thirty years; and Abbie Irene Colby, who is residing at home. Mr Colby is a comrade of C. R. Mudge Post, G.A.R. No. 114. He attends and supports the Universalist Church.

Enlisted in Civil War on 2 September 1862, served as Chaplin.
