The surname Hale, Heald, Haild, and Haile are identical in origin in this country. Families of these names have a common ancestor in John Heald, or Hale, of Concord. The name is also spelled Held, Helde, and Halde. According to tradition, John Heald was from Berwicj-on-Tweed, Northumberland, England. A representative of the family who visited this place about 1890 was unable to find any trace of the Healds there. "It is possible," writes Professor Charles A. Torrey, of the Chicago University, "that the tradition is incorrect."
Heald settled in Concord, Mass. at an early date, probably in 1635. He was admitted a freeman June 2, 1641. He lived also at Roxbury and Cambridge. He died May 24, 1662, in Concord. His autograph will made a short time before that date is found at the East Cambridge probate office (Middlesex county), and his handwriting is remarkably good. In his will he mentioned his wife Dorothy, sons John and Timothy, and daughter Hannah, besides "five younger children."

In later years his name was spelled Hale. He had a grant of land on the west side of the Agawam river, March 11, 1700-01, upon Feeding Hill.

His father had the third lot of ten acres in a division of the proprietary in 1721. His brother Benjamin had the fourth lot; he also shard in the division. In a list of men over twenty-one in Springfield (West) April, 1707, he and his brother John and their father are mentioned. He was elected hogreeve in 1715-16, an honor reserved generally for newly married men. His brother John was similarly honored in 1714.

He was a soldier in the revolution, in Captain Zadock Everest's company, Colonel Ira Allen's regiment, in 1781, and again in 1782.

The dates of birth and death as they appear in the text would make his age at death 66 years one month twenty days. But the gravestone has: "Benjamin Hale, died Jan. 8, 1853, aet. 68 yrs." This stone was erected by his son, Gershom Hale, who had a most accurate memory. Under date of August 2, 1907, Commissioner of Pensions Warner wrote to a grandson of Benjamin Hale: "In the soldier's application for bounty land, made in St. Lawrence county, New York, is the statement in 1851 that he was then sixty-six years of age." This statement is in harmony with the insciption on the graveston.]

Samuel Hale, first American ancestor, was born in England, A.D. 1610. The exact date of his coming to America is not known, but he is known to have been a settler at Hartford, Conn. in 1637, and that he bought land on the east side of the river Connecticut in 1639. He served in the Pequot war, with his brother Thomas, for which he received a lot in the Soldiers' Field, and a grant of fifty acres was made to his heirs "for his services in the Pequot Warre."
In 1643 he resided in Wethersfield, Conn., moving to Norwalk, where he lived in 1655. While living in Norwalk he represented that town in the general court in 1656-57-60. He returned to Wethersfield in 1660, living in that part now Glastonburgy, where he is reputed as having been a leading man. He died there Nov. 9, 1693.
His wife's given name was Mary, thought by some to have been Mary Wells, but her maiden name is not certainly known, but at the time when the settlement of New England was begun there were in England at least three large families of Hales in different parts of the kingdom, viz: The Hales of Kent, the Halse of Hertford, and the Hales of Gloucestershire, and it is believed that Samuel, of Hartford, was descended from one of these.
Contemporary with Samuel Hale in this country was Thomas Hale, of Newbury, Mass., and Deacon Robert Hale, of Charleston, Mass., 1630, and from these three all the Hales of New England stock are descended. They are not known to have been related, the Thomas Hale of Newbury not being the Thomas spoken of as having served in the Pequot war with his brother Samuel.

(IV) Moses, son of Thomas (2) Hale, was born at Glastonbury, Conn. He married Mary Edwards of Middletown, Conn. He was at one time a resident of Lanesboro, Mass. He was one of the original proprietors of the town of Rutland, Vermont, a grant of land having been given by George the III of England, to seventy men known as the "Original Proprietors," of the ton of Rutland. This grant was something over six miles square, and contained about twenty-six thousand five hundred acres, "to be divided among them in seventy equal shares." The records of the town show that he was at one time the owner of over two thousand acres, a large part of which was within the present city of Rutland, including Main street, North and South, and all East. He left, as a famikly relic, his Bible to be given to "such of his descendants as should be named Moses." This Bible passed first into the hands of his son Moses, Jr., second to Moses B., son of Moses Jr., and is now (1910) a much-prized possession in the family of S. Moses Hale, of North Stockholm Station, New York, and is yet in a good state of preservation. It was printed in 1791.
Milford Hale Smith, of Rutland, Vermont, writes: "In the old graveyard on North Main St., in the city of Rutland, I have found four tombs with the following inscriptions: (1) 'Thomas Hale, B. 1775, D. Oct. 29, 1812, A. 57'; (2) 'Ruth Hale, wife of Thomas Hale, B. 1757, D. Jan. 27, 1801, A. 44'; (3) Joseph Hale, son of Thomas and Ruth Hale, B 1779, D. April 1800'; (4) 'Sarah Hale, Dau. of Thomas Hale, B. 1777, D. July 4, 1801.' I am unable to find the tomb of Moses Hale."
