Dennis Egerton of Bridgewater, Massachusetts

 

 

 

To date, very little is known about the parentage, ancestry or early life of Dennis Egerton of East Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.  It is estimated that he was born circa 1690.  Dennis may have been related to a John Egerton, who was married to Grace Far in Swansea, Bristol Co., Massachusetts on July 6, 1730.

 

The following conjecture on the origins of Dennis Egerton is presented in Historic Homes and Places and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs Relating to the Families of Middlesex County, Massachusetts (William Richard Cutter; New York:  Lewis Historical Publishing Company; 1908; Vol. IV; pp. 1665-1666):

 

“Dennis Egerton (or Edgarton) the first ancestor known of the Shirley (Massachusetts) line, was probably the pioneer.  He appeared in East Bridgewater about the time of the coming of the Scotch-Irish to Massachusetts, but may be a descendant of the pioneer, Richard, of Norwich.  The fact that after the father’s death the children were all baptized in the East Bridgewater church at the same time, April 18, 1734, indicates that the family was not of Puritan upbringing before that time, and would accord with the idea that Egerton was a Scotch or English Presbyterian from the north of Ireland.”

 

The first definitive record of Dennis Egerton is that of his marriage, on March 12, 1717/8 in Barnstable, Massachusetts to Experience Bearse (aka. Bierce), daughter of James and Experience (Howland) Bearse.  Experience was born in Barnstable circa 1692 and was a descendant of the Plymouth Colony Howlands.  Dennis and Experience (Bearse) Egerton settled in East Bridgewater (Halifax), Massachusetts, where they had a family of eight children:

 

i.

Hannah Egerton, born November 8, 1719.  She married Thomas Hall July 14, 1746 in Halifax, Plymouth County, MA.

ii.

John Egerton, born April 24, 1721; died January 3, 1779 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, MA.  He married Abigail Snow November 27, 1746 in East Bridgewater, Plymouth County, MA.

iii.

Rebecca Egerton, born May 11, 1723; died December 1766 in Hardwick, Warren County, NJ.  She married Elisha Cooke November 5, 1741 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, MA.

iv.

Experience Egerton, born October 11, 1725.  She married Benjamin Howland February 10, 1741/42 in Pembroke, Plymouth County, MA.

v.

James Egerton, born May 19, 1727.

vi.

Hezekiah Egerton, born September 18, 1729; died 1804 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, MA.  He married Mary Hedgbone January 15, 1754 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, MA.

vii.

Miriam Egerton, born September 4, 1731.

vii.

Dennis Egerton, born May 18, 1733; died July 24, 1752 in Lebanon, New London County, CT.

 

Dennis Egerton apparently died prior to April 28, 1734, as his eight children were baptized together on that date at the East Bridgewater Church to the “Widow Egerton”.  There is currently no record of the death or burial of Dennis Egerton, nor of his wife, Experience.

 

Through his eldest son, John (who went by the name “Edgarton”), Dennis Egerton was the progenitor of the extensive branch of the family that resided in Shirley, Worcester County, Massachusetts throughout the late 1700’s and early 1800’s.  John Edgarton was married to Abigail Snow, of East Bridgewater, and raised a large family of nine children.  Most of the children removed to Shirley in the latter part of the 18th century.  Many of John’s sons and grandsons raised families in Shirley.  One of his sons, James, settled in Langdon, Sullivan County, New Hampshire, while other descendants of this branch later removed to Madison County, New York.

 

Descendants of the Dennis Egerton line are also found noteably in Boston and Lancaster, Massachusetts; Thomaston (Knox Co.), Maine; Hardwick (Warren Co.), New Jersey; and Nova Scotia, Canada.  The following is a brief outline of the known descendants of Dennis Edgerton (Egerton).
