Birth*Edmond Freeman was born before 15 July 1596.1 
BaptismHe was baptized on 15 July 1596 at St. Mary's Church, Pulborough, Sussex, England.1 
Note*Biographical Sketch; Edmond Freeman (b.1596)
Dawes-Gates, p. 349-64, gives a well-documented account showing that Edmond Freeman was baptized 25 July 1596 at St. Mary's Church, Pulborough, Sussex, the son of Edmond and [p.294] Alice (Coles) Freeman, and he died 2 November 1682 at Sandwich, Plymouth Colony. He married (1) at Cowfold, Sussex, on 16 June 1617 Bennett Hodsoll, daughter of John and Faith (_____) (Bacon) Hodsoll, who died in 1630 at Pulborough and (2) Elizabeth, whose surname is not known, but who may have been a widow Perry. He sailed for New England with four surviving children and some other people with his surname on the Abigail in July 1635, and he settled first at Saugus (Lynn) in the Bay Colony. He was evidently the leader of the Saugus men who moved in 1637 to Sandwich, and it was to him that a deed was granted as agent for the others. He became an Assistant in Plymouth Colony, but was not reelected in 1646, and Edward Winslow wrote to Gov. John Winthrop in Boston that "I suppose the country left [Freeman] out in regard of his professed Anabaptistry & Separacon from the Churches" (MHS Collections, 4th Series, 6:178). The Dawes-Gates account shows also that he was of an unorthodox nature for his time and place, and was later sympathetic to the Quakers. He had business interests of his own in New England, and he had a power of attorney in behalf of his brother-in-law, John Beauchamp, who had continued as one of the four London Undertakers after the other Adventurers sold out their interests.
His will dated 21 June 1682, proved 2 November 1682, named his three "sons," Edmond Freeman, John Freeman, and Edward Perry (whose wife Mary has sometimes been assumed to have been a daughter of Edmond Freeman, but there is no evidence for this, and thus Perry may have been the son of Freeman's second wife). Also named were his daughter Elizabeth Ellis, and his grandsons Matthias Freeman and Thomas Paddy (MD 12:248). His son Edmond married (1) Rebecca Prence, daughter of Thomas and (2) Margaret Perry. His son John married Mercy Prence, daughter of Thomas. His daughter Elizabeth married John Ellis. His other children were Alice Freeman, who married William Paddy, and a daughter Bennett and a son Nathaniel, both of whom died young. For additional comments on the Perrys, see Lydia B. (Phinney) Brownson and Maclean McLean, "Ezra Perry of Sandwich, Mass. (c. 1625-1689)," NEHGR 115:86.

—Biographical Sketches. [separate file]
THE history of Sandwich as a white man's settlement now covers a period of 253 years embracing 48 years preceding the formation of Barnstable county. Prior to 1654 the records of the proprietors are meagre and nearly illegible, but the events recorded are those common to the early history of the plantations of Plymouth colony, and are fraught with the domestic incidents and names so reverently preserved by the present generation. Notwithstanding the records prior to 1884 embrace also the history of Bourne, the compilation of the history of the settlement and growth of Sandwich will be confined to the territory now encompassed within its bounds, so far as a careful research into the musty pages of the past may render the facts separable.

Sandwich is the second town on the north side of the Cape from the main land, fronting for several miles on Cape Cod bay, which forms its northern boundary. The peculiar rhomboidal shape of the town from the line of the bay renders its boundary complicated. Barnstable forms the eastern boundary, extending from near Scorton harbor southwesterly to the northeast corner of Mashpee ; the towns forming the southern boundary are Falmouth and Mashpee, the latter also being the eastern boundary for the southwestern portion of Sandwich; and Bourne forms the western according to the division line of 1884 described in the chapter on that town. The area of Sandwich within the perimeter given is 20,955 acres, the surface of which, excepting the salt marshes along the bay, presents a beautiful diversity of undulations in which hills and downs blend in pleasing variety. The valleys contain ponds and rivulets. The central and southern portions of the town are still covered with large tracts of woods affording game of the smaller

265

sort. The soil is a sandy loam on the elevations, and a fertile alluvium around the ponds and in the valleys.

The ponds are numerous, the larger ones being Peter's, containing 176 acres; Spectacle, of 151 acres; Triangle, 84; Snake, 76; and Lawrence, 70. The smaller ponds worthy of mention are Ellis, of 25 acres; Mill, southwest of Sandwich village, 47; Weeks, 12; and two at East Sandwich, of 12 acres each. Of these ponds only one has a visible outlet; the one southwest of the village supplies Mill river with power for mills. Wakeby pond, connected with the Mashpee, is partially surrounded by the territory of Sandwich.

The inhabitants have always paid much attention to agricultural and mechanical pursuits, and less than do those of the neighboring towns to maritime employments. Besides the culture of the usual crops large quantities of cranberries are successfully raised in every part. Orchards of all kinds are a source of profit. Fishing is one of the occupations of the residents, but not a large amount of shipping is owned and that small, only sufficient for home pursuits. The harbors, too small for important commerce and large shipping, are adequate for the wants of the town, and this fact has assisted in determining the prevailing occupations of its people.

The territory of Sandwich, prior to 1637, was embraced in the unsettled portions of the vast tract granted to William Bradford and his associates then called the council of Plymouth, and to this council the people of the town were subject, especially in the affairs of the church. No person was permitted "to live or inhabit within the Government of New Plymouth without the leave and liking of the Governor and his assistants." No laws had been made touching political and civil rights until November 15, 1636. A civil power— not church government—.was then needed to prevent and correct a conflict of interests in the growing colony. Then it was enacted that annually an election should be held, "but confined to such as shall be admitted as freemen," to whom a stringent oath was prescribed; and none were to be admitted but such as were "orthodox in the fundamentals of religion, and possessed of a ratable estate of twenty pounds." The idea was inculcated that colonies could be established with the right of representation, which was an incentive to the enterprising to seek other lands. Historians assert, that religious considerations also led the ten Saugus (Lynn) pioneers to seek this first plantation of the Cape. Whatever their motives, after deliberation they concluded that the Plymouth colony could be no more stringent than the Massachusetts, nor present more obstacles to their aspirations; so they sought and obtained permission from the colony of Plymouth to locate a plantation at Shaume, now Sandwich. The record says: ''April 3, 1637, it is also agreed by the Court that these

266

ten men of Saugus, viz., Edmund Freeman, Henry Feake, Thomas Dexter, Edward Dillingham, William Wood, John Carman, Richard Chadwell, William Almy, Thomas Tupper, and George Knott, shall have liberty to view a place to sit down, and have sufficient lands for three-score families, upon the conditions propounded to them by the governor and Mr. Winslow."

That year these men except Thomas Dexter, who came subsequently, settled with their families in and near that part of the town now occupied by the village of Sandwich. on 3 April 1637 at Sandwich, Massachusetts.3

Note*Excerpted from an Ancestry.com "story":
This is written in 2008 by Joi Espelund.
"The information herein has recently come to my knowledge. It has come from two sources - a distant cousin recently found through Ancestry.com and my mother's memories inspired by that distant cousin, Elisa. So, here is the story as I have it.
William Worden never married or had children. But he became quite a successful business man in his area. He owned a hotel ~the Worden Hotel ~ in Saratoga Springs, New York at the turn of the last century. One day, his brother, Charles E. Worden, was bringing a lunch to William and was in some sort of an accident with a train. It is unsure if he lost his legs or just the use of them. Though he survived the accident, he was disabled. William profited greatly when he sold the hotel some time in 1913 or 14. He apparently felt much concern for his brother and the maintenance of his family...."2

Mr. Worden was former Sheriff of the county and Postmaster of the village and had been a Republican State Committeeman and delegate to many national conventions. He was 71 years old and was at one time proprietor of the Worden Hotel and was also a former president of the Congress Spring Company and a director of the Saratoga Racing Association and the Adirondack Trust Company. He was a veteran of the Civil War.8

His commitment was for a 5 year enlistment. Apparently his last duty station was at Fort Mitchell, AL. where he was discharged on April 30, 1832 on a "Surgen's Certificate" (ie., medical discharge) .
[Extract frrom "exploresouthernhistory.com": Fort Mitchell was in present day Russell County, first established in 1813 as a base for Georgia troops during the Creek War of 1813-1814. It was an important post on the American frontier for nearly three decades. The fort remained an important U.S. Army post through the rest of the War of 1812, of which the Creek War was an independent part, as well as the First Seminole War of 1817- 1818. Eventually it was replaced with a smaller and better constructed stockade. Fort Mitchell also servied as a key point for operations during the Creek War of 1836 and was the starting point for the Creek or Muskogee Trail of Tears.]
After being discharged at Fort Mitchell, Cornelius stayed in the nearby Alabama- Georgia area where he is recorded to have been a farmer. He met and married Gilly Ann Wiggins on Feb 12, 1835. The marriage took place in Chambers County, AL. US Census indicates Gilly Ann was born in Georgia (abt. 1816) and they had 4 children: Amy E. (1836), Mary Ann (1839), Washington (1842), and Gilly Ann (1845). Cornelius died in Tallapoosa County, Al in October 1860 of Typhoid fever.
