Records of the Town of Plymouth 1705 to 1743: Volume II:John Dyer served f rom March 2d, 1723-4, until March 3d, 1739-40, with t he exception of t he year beginning March 1, 1732-3, during which the offi ce of clerk was h eld by Gershom Foster. Mr. Dyer, born in 1671, was probab ly the son of Jo hn Dyer of Weymouth. He came to Plymouth in 1698, and in t hat year boug ht of William Bradford, the son of Governor Bradford, the l ot of la nd on the southeasterly side of Leyden Street, on which the hou se wi th a brick end stands opposite the Universalist Church. The lot is de scri bed in the deed as running on the street northeasterly "as far as t he nor theasterly corner of the old store house which formerly stood on t he lot ." By this deed the precise location is defined of probably one of t he ea rliest structures of the Colony. Mr. Dyer taught school in Plymouth d uri ng a few months in the year 1700, and became a prominent and valuable c it izen. He was a member of the board of selectmen from 1709 to 1734 inclus i ve, town treasurer from 1701 to 1732, and occasionally served as moder at or at town meetings.

=======================================The year that John Dyer moved to Pl ymouth, Massachusetts, is not know n. He was in Boston for his marria ge by the Rev. Samuel WILLARD to Hann ah MORTON in 1694, and the minut es of the Selectmen of Boston, for the mee ting held on 22 MAR 1697, sta te that "It was voted that John Dyer should b eTythingman in the sted of J ohn Clow, for the year ensuing Because John Cl ow had lately served in th at place." At the same time, in March of 169 7, John Dyer was employ ed by the town of Weymouth to teach in the school h ouse there, withJohn K ING as his assistant. How John Dyer could manage to be in both p la ce is a mystery (though they are not separated by much distance geograp hic ally), but it should be noted that no other Dyer fits the Weymouth pos iti on except the one at hand.The next records in which John Dyer appea rs are those he notarized as t he Notary Public for Plymouth as early as J une of 1719. Later that yea r, on 16 DEC 1719, he witnessed (with James W INSLOW) a debt between J. Ad am JONES of Agawam and the lawyer Benjamin HA WS of Edgar Town for the s um of 48 pounds.From March of 1723/24 to Mar ch of 1732/33, John Dyer kept the Plymouth to wn records and, presumably f or some unrecorded military service, was kno wn as "Capt. John Dyer of Ply mouth". The last official item regarding Jo hn Dyer was on 09 JUN 1729 wh en Eleazer (b. 03 NOV 1673) and Ruhamah ROGE RS deeded a piece of la nd at Plymouth to him for twelve pounds.There is a further John DYER who m ay have been the issue of John's marria ge to Hannah MORTON who was buri ed on 27 NOV 1698 at First Church Boston.

General Notes: BIOGRAPHY OF JOSEPH DYER (1687-ca. 1720)Records show the year of his bir th as 1686, but as this would be only fi ve months after his brother Samu el was born, the year 1687 appears more li kely (Savage gives 2 MAR 1687). Joseph Dyer's occupation was as a "mariner". In 1717, he bought a h ou se on Hepburn Lane, Boston, presumably to house himself and his wife, L yd ia HOUGH, to whom he was married by the Rev. John WEBB ("presby. ") on 19 D EC 1717. At the same time (to finance the house?), with his mot her and thr ee sisters (presumably Elizabeth, Mary and Sarah -- they mu st have owned t he property in common), he sold four acres of marsh in Cha rlestown.Subsequent records are lacking but it appears that it is with Jos eph th at the variant spelling "DYAR" originated, though it was not used c onsiste ntly yet (the family in Weymouth has births, death and marriages r egister ed under both spellings).The date of his death is not known, but t he "Dyar Genealogy" (1903) hazar ds a guess at about 1720.Lydia Hough DYER 's will, probated on 04 AUG 1774, mentions her son Jose ph (1718/19-1780 ), and granddaughter, Lydia DYER (b. 1757).

Benjamin married Mercy Woodbridge on 19 Nov 1696 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Ct. Mercy was born on 27 Sep 1672 and died on 28 Jun 1707 at age 34.

The child from this marriage was:

+ 114 F    i. Mercy Ruggles was born on 6 Nov 1697 in Suffield, Hartford, Ct and died on 10 Nov 1761 in Simsbury, Hartford, Ct at age 64.

35. Hannah\Harriet Dyer (Benjamin [Twin]9, Thomas1) was born on 27 Sep 1692 in Boston, Suffolk, Mass29 and died on 3 Oct 1692 in Boston, Suffolk, Mass.48

General Notes: She died almost immediately upon birth, and she was buried on 03 OCT 1692 at Boston. Her name is variously given as Harriet and Hannah.

36. Thomas Dyer (Benjamin [Twin]9, Thomas1) was born on 7 Nov 1693 in Boston, Suffolk, Mass49 and died on 22 Feb 1721/22 at age 28.

General Notes: Thomas Dyer may have been a mariner. His children are listed as tho se of Thomas Dyer "and Mary", and she may be identified with one MARY VIN E, though this is not certain. Needless to say, there is an incompatabili ty between him dying on 22 FEB 1722 and the birth of his fourth chi ld in 1 724!

General Notes: BIOGRAPHY OF BENJAMIN DYAR, Jr. (1700-1777)Benjamin DYAR, Jr. was the s on of Benjamin DYER, Sr. (1653-1718) and his f irst wife , Hannah ODLIN (1 666-1729/30), both of Boston, MA. He was bo rn at Boston on 27 Nov 1700, d ied about 18 Feb 1777 at Collinsville, Canto n, Hartford, Ct; and his pla ce of burial has yet to be discovered. The yo uth of Benjamin Dyar (th at he considered himself a "DYAR" rather than a "D YER" is shown bythe bir th records of his seventh through ninth children, and his LW&T bei ng dra wn up in that surname -- a surname not accepted by most of his child re n, with the exception of his son John and daughter Sarah) is rather curi o us, to say the least.The sources repeatedly indicate that BENJAMIN DYAR w as a "schoolmate of t he renowned Benjamin Franklin", yet Benjamin FRANKL IN (1706-1790) attend ed school for only two years in his entire lif e: a year at ae 8 at the Gr ammar School on Boston Common in 1714 (whi ch later became the famous Bost on Latin School) and a year at George BROW NELL's progressive and co-educat ional academy in 1715. The mystery m ay be resolved in light of Benjamin D YAR's occupation: tallow chandle r. As Franklin says in his autobiograph y, "at ten years old I was tak en home to assist my father in his busines s, which was that of a tallow-h andler and sope-boiler; a business he was n ot bred to, but had assum ed on his arrival in New England, and on findi ng his dying trade would n ot maintain his family, being in little reques t. Accordingly, I was emplo yed in cutting wick for the candles, filling t he dipping mold and the mol ds for cast candles, attending the shop, goi ng of errands, etc." (p. 10-1 1). FRANKLIN continued working with his fath er for two years, and "sign ed the indentures [to his brother James, a prin ter] when I was yet but tw elve years old." (1718). Thus it appears possib le that DYAR and FRANKL IN were initially in contact between the years 1715 -1718, when BENJAMIN D YAR was in his mid-teens. If this is so, then DYAR 's naming his first-bo rn (b. 22 SEP 1726) "Benjamin F." may have been h is way of honoring his ( yet-to-be-famous) boyhood friend. Though the meani ng of the "F" has not b een handed down, itmay well have been "Franklin", and the fact that midd le names are ra re in this family down to this time may well indicate th at this child havi ng a middle name was particularly significant.Benjam in was married ("both of Boston") to Margaret CLAPP on 22 NOV 17 25 at Bos ton's First Church by the Rev. Thomas FOXCROFT, and, about 173 3, mov ed to Hartford, Hartford, Ct. In 1740 the family removed to West Si msbu ry (now Collinsvilletwp, Canton), CT, and bought a large tract of land (ov er 600 acres) near t he Farmington River, a mile northeasterly from Collin sville. Perhaps pa rt of this is the 64 acres Benjamin (said to be "of Ha rtford") purchased f rom John COULT & Marcy COULT on 28 NOV 1739 ("138th l ot in the last divisi on of the Simsbury Commons") -- see below for dee d. The History of Simsbu ry (1845), says that Benjamin came directly fr om Boston to Simsbury in 174 1, but this is obviously incorrect. Brown (1 856) says "he removed with h is wife from Boston to Hartford, 1735, a nd in the year 1745, removed and s ettled in West Simsbury, on land now oc cupied by Luther HIGLEY, Esq., ne ar the south end of what is claimed to b elong to the parsonage grant. "THE HOUSE OF BENJAMIN DYAR, JR. (PAGE hous e; built 1747) Per Canton (1956 ), p 64., the second Benjamin was born N OV 1747 in the house, which was so ld by Luther HIGLEY, Esq., in 1855 to P AGE (who d. 1880). The father of R alph DOWD (who owned the house in 195 6) bought it about 1898-1900, and ma de many changes to the house. Ralph D OWD stated that the old fourteen by f ifteen foot stone chimney had been r emoved. It contained seven flues, up t othe attic floor, then brick throu gh the roof. When this chimney was remov ed, the old fireplaces were to rn out and modern corner fireplaces were p ut in. The large frame is pegg ed together with wooden pegs and the plat es are eight by eight and for ty feet long. The cased beams and corner pos ts remain in the rooms.Recent ly, when the new road was constructed this house was moved back or s outhe ast from the highway." An article published before 1940 says th at " it is believed oldest in town"; "Mr. DOWD says the stone from this ch imn ey built thesupports of a town bridge nearby, foundations for a barn a nd a wall f or a brook which runs behind the house. Enough stones were le ft over so th at they are still
available as needed".

The will implies that his second wife, Mar y, and he h ad not been married long: "and also all the Moveable Estate whi ch She myS aid Wife brought with her at the time of our Marriage & also One Cer ta in flowered Coverlet She has worked on and Made Since our Said Marriage ... ." This is certainly a strange passage if it relates to Margaret, a w om an to whom he had been married for almost fifty years.Per Dawn Bobr yk at Simsbury Library (16 JUL 1996): "The will of Benjamin D YER ... I wa nt to examine the original although I think a microfilmed co py is the be st I can do because I thought it might have been written Marg /j and pick ed up as Mary. It was not uncommon for people to use vario us diminutiv es or nicknames even a middle name. If the name were not Ma ry it would s end off an alarm. I really think from what I have seen th at this wi fe of Benjamin's was ensuring her future as well as something f or the dau ghters. The coverlet may have been something with commemorati ve dat es on it as the marriage progressed and if it were not specifical ly menti oned it could end up being sold off by the executors...in this ca se the f our sons. It suggests to me a devoted relationship between husba nd and wi fe and an attempt to ensure the woman's propery rights which we re almo st non-existent then."Benjamin's estate, inventoried was valued at 378 po unds, 16 shillings a nd included 159 acres of land. His son, Thomas, havi ng already received fi fty acres of land from his father while he lived, w as bequeathed six shill ings. The balance of the estate (minus twenty shil lings each for his fo ur daughters and the normal bequest for his wife) w as divided equally betw een John, Benjamin and Daniel.
