Leiutenant Roger Plaisted [Parents] [scrapbook] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 was born 7 in 1623 in Mildenhall, Wiltshire, England. He was christened 8, 9, 10 in 1624 in Durnford Mill, Wiltshire, England. He died 11, 12 on 16 Oct 1675 in Salmon Falls, Berwick, York Co, Maine. The cause of death was killed by Indians. He married 13, 14, 15 Olive Coleman on 23 Mar 1648 in Preshute, Wiltshire, England.

"About 1649 Roger Plaisted, his wife, Olive, and their son Roger II, emigrated to America, landing in Boston. On 20 February 1654, he witnessed a deed for Nason in Berwick, Maine, which was then known as Newichewannock, or Quamphegan. There is a record of a note due him for 42 pounds before September 1656. He was one of the 15 associates of the Province of Maine, from kittery, and he was a Representative to the General Court from1663 to 1667. He was a magistrate inthe York County Court in 1664, a grand juror in 1667, and he was a Selectman of the Town of Berwick.
Plaisted had an original grant of land when he went to Berick. In 1659 the town of Berwick granted him 100 acres of land at Salmon Falls, on the Nechiwannock River. He was subsequently granted 264 additional acres.
About 1660, Roger rented from the Hutchinsons the sawmill property known as the Great Works. it subsequently was owned by John Plaisted, his son. In 1707, Ichabod Plaisted, another son, purchased 200 acres adjacent to Roger's Salmon Falls grant. The Plaisted family accumulated a considerable amount of propery in the Kittery area. Roger built a Garrision House on his 1659 grant.
He was a Leiutenant in the military forces under the command of Captain Charles Frost. On October 16, 1675, the Indians attacked Kittery with a force of about 100 men. They burned Richard Tozier's house and killed 4 men. Roger Plaisted led a group of men to recover the bodies. He and his son, Roger Plaisted, Jr., were both killed. On the day the he was killed, he and George Broughton sent a letter requesting assistance which ended as follows: 'Sirs: If ever you have any love for us and for the country, now show yourselves with men to help us, or else we are all in great danger to be slain unless our God wonderfully appears for our deliverance. They that cannot fight let them pray. Nothing else but rest yours to serve.'
Following the death of Roger Plaisted, his widow, Olive, married John Wincoll. Articles of agreement were signed September 16 1682, between Olive Wincoll, William Plaisted, James Plaisted, John Plaisted, Elisha Plaisted, Ichabod Plaisted, Elizabeth Plaisted, and Mehitable Plaisted, regarding the estate.
At one time there was a gravestone near the site in Berwick where Roger Plaisted and his son died, with this inscription: 'Here lies interred the body of Samuel Plaisted, Esq., who departed this life March 20, 1731-2, aged 36; near this place lies buried the body of Roger Plaisted who was killed by the Indians, october 16, 1675, age 48, also the body of his son, Mr. Roger Plaisted, Jr., who was killed at the same time."

Mr. Richard Waldern and Lieut. Coffin:
These are to inform you that just now the Indians are engaging us with
at least one hundred men, and have slain four of our men already-***
Sir, if you have any love of us, and the Country, now show yourself with
men to help us, or else we are all in great danger to be slain, unless
our God wonderfully appears for our deliverance.

Yours to serve you

George Broughton
No one knows what answer was sent, but apparently no relief was sent.
Roger Playstead, determined to give his dead friends a proper burial,
ventured forth from the fort with twenty soldiers, but was set upon by
100 to 150 Indians who had been hiding in the woods. Roger Playstead was
killed by these Indians, though one man said that the Indians had just
wanted to hold him for ransom. Playstead's eldest son and another man
were also killed, and another of Playstead's sons was injured so badly
that he later died.
........................................................................
...................................................
The first overseas settler of the family was Roger Plaisted (1624-1675)
born at Dunford Mill, near Mildenhall and Chilton Foliat, who married
Olive Coleman of Preshute, Wilts. His uncles John and Robert had been
prominent in the affairs of that district when Sir John Popham of
Chilton Foliat, Old Chief Justice of England, launched an enterprise to
develop the Northern part of Virginia, which afterwards became New
England.
This expedition to the New World was dispatched under the
auspices of the Plymouth Virginia Co., for which the money and the men
had been got together by Sir John Popham, set sail with two vessels
under the command of Capt. George Popham, on 31st May, and reached its
destination on 11th August, 1607. The winter proved so severe that all
people save 45 were retuned from a region which they described as "a
cold, barren, mountainous, rocky desert."
In year about 1649, a year marked by the execution of Charles I,
and birth of the new Commonwealth, Roger left England accompanied by
Olive, and their son Roger, the younger. Roger would have gone by road
to Portsmouth, and there taken passage by on of the ships as the "Angel
Gabriel" or "The James". He lande at Boston. About 1654 he proceeded to
Kittery. (Maine)
The inhabitants of Saco, Cape Corpus, Wells, York and Kittery,
numbering 71 souls addressed a petition to Oliver Cromwell, praying to
be placed under the Govt. of Mass., alleging they were a people few in
number. One of the petitioners on that occasion was Roger Plaisted,
whose activities were largely devoted to the welfare of Maine.

possibly came over with two brothers: John and Thomas (John appearing in list of taxpayers in Boston 1681, and Thomas a merchant in Salem, Massachusetts in 1690) (from "Lieut. Roger Plaisted...")

As Hubbard narrates the tale of a subsequent attack on the nearby settlement of Newichawannock (South Berwick), the viewer has the uneasy feeling of having shared adventures with these archetypical characters before. Here a brave maiden was just able to close the door of her house before the attackers drove their arrows and axes into the door's paneling. Other inhabitants having escaped out the back door toward a nearby garrson, the brave "virago" (Hubbard's word, then of nobler meaning than now) held the door closed as long as she could. But finally it fell beneath the ax blows and she was knocked on the head as the enemy charged through the house in pursuit of the rest of the family. They succeeded in catching two little girls, one of whom was killed, the other taken captive. As for the heroine, she lived to give Hubbard and other narrators the terrifying details of her ordeal.
A few weeks later, Newichawannock was again surrounded by a large force of attackers; this time they seemed determined to besiege the town until it capitulated. The nearest fortified point to which the settlers could appeal was Dover, on the banks of the Piscataqua River, which divides Maine from New Hampshire. To Dover, five miles away, a messenger was sent on October 14th with the following plea:
To Mr. Richard Waldron and Lieutenant Coffin: These are to inform you that the Indians are just now engaging us with at least one hundred men and have slain four of our men already - Richard Tozier, James Barron, Isaac Botts, and Tozier's son - and have burnt Benony Hodsdon's house. Sirs, if you ever have any love for us and the country, now show yourse;ves with men to help us, or else we are all in great danger to be slain, unless our God wonderfully appears for our deliverance. They that cannot fight, let them pray. Nothing else, but rest yours to serve.
Roger Plaisted
George Broughton
Plaisted and his sons were killed in the action that followed. But ultimately, just before help arrived from the town of Eliot, the attackers abandoned their seige.

I am having difficulty verifying the Plaisted line in England, especially connecting the line of Lt. Roger Plaised (ca. 1624-1675) of Salmon Falls, ME to Sir John du Plessis, erstwhile Earl of Warwick. At the moment I am having research done in Wiltshire but can find no record of the baptism of a Roger Plaisted in 1624 (actually, the only such record is of Roger Plaisted, baptized 1580, whom you list as Lt. Roger Plaisted's father. We did find a record of the marriage of Roger Plaisted and Olive Coleman in Preshute, Wilts., March 23, 1647/48 but that was the only entry in the local records that could apply to him. Without a baptismal record I can see no way to connect Lt. Roger Plaisted to any parents and thus to other ancestry. The are numerous problems with the morphing of du Plessis into Plaisted, not the least of which is that Sir John du Plessis is shown in the Dictionary of National Biography (pp. 1307 and 1308) as having only one child, Hugh de Plessis who married Sir John's ward, Isabella de Biset. There is no mention of other children, i.e., Robert and Beatrice. Also, your pedigree shows Robert's year of birth as about 1250; however, Sir John married Margaret de Neubourg, Countess of Warwick, 25 December 1243, by whom he had no children and the earldom of Warwick passed to his wife's nephew, William Mauduit. This would seem to confirm that Sir John had no child who was eligible to succeed to the title. It would thus seem that if he had a son Robert, he would have had to have been born prior to 1243. This Robert is shown in your pedigree as married to Ela Biset, which is uncomfortably close to Isabella de Biset, wife of Hugh de Plessis and, in my opinion, casts doubt on the accuracy of the research done in the two books you mention as sources. I have been unable to buy or borrow copies of either of these books, but have NEHGS searching their non-circulating copy of the Rev. Plaisted's book to determine the sources cited therein. If possible, I would like to correspond with you on this problem. I am particularly interested in the Plaisted/de Plessis line as it connects with my wife's ancestry through the great-grandson of Hugh de Plessis. I have several other problems with the Plaisted/de Plessis connection, e.g., I can find no record of Thomas Plaisted, supposed Bailiff of Castle Combe, Wilts., which I visited several times while working on archaeological sites in Wiltshire over the years. It was one of my favourite spots in England long before I knew of any possible connection with the area. Sincerely, Robert M. Henderson Dowling Park, FL

Ode to Samuel
He came into Cortland County from Cayuga's wooded hills
And he settles in the Glen with his family and his mills
Then in time he told his neighbors, "Take a portion of my land"
"It's a place to build a schoolhouse for as long as it shall stand."
The long years came and went and the family did the same
'Til in time there was no person there who carried Samuel's name.
When the monster labelled progress gobbled up the country schools
Those who tried to slow its course were called sentimental fools,
But there's dignity in memories and pride in eras past
And Samuel's true descendants want his heritage to last.
May they rally to the cause, raise their voices by the score
To preserve the little schoolhouse that belonged to District Four.
(By Roselle Robinette Scott, from The Search for the Descendants...)

"Glen Haven Water Cure and Summer Resort, at Glen Haven, located on the east line of the town, at the Skaneateles Lake, has acquired a favorable notoriety from its delightful situation, picturesque scenery, for its salubrity, and excellent accomodations... Samuel Scott was the first settler at the Glen; but the property was owned by David Hall of Skaneateles, who built a part of the Glen Haven House for a hotel, and sold it to Dr. Gleason and Miss Gilbert, who converted it into a water cure in 1845..."

History of the Town of Scott:
Three-fourths of a mile below the Cottrell mill is the frame of an old flax-mill that was put in operation at an early day by the West family, who ran it until about the year 1865. The property is still owned by members of the family, but the mill is not used as such.
Near the old saw-mill built by Jonathan Scott and about opposite to it, is the oil-mill built by him. The saw-mill was erected in 1828 and the oil-mill in 1830. The latter has always been kept in the hands of the Scott family, being now owned and operated by Ransom Scott. The site of the old saw-mill now belongs to Esquire Hunt. A freshet of twenty years ago carried off the saw-mill, and three thousand bushels of flax seed.
Ransom Scott built a distillery in the vicinity of these mills during the War of the Rebellion. It was afterward burned.
In 1880 a saw-mill was built by Samuel Scott a mile below the oil-mill, which he still owns. On the east shore at the head of the lake Greeley Cady and brothers built a steam saw-mill on this stream, in that direction; but there are others on the same stream northward from Scott Center. A. Babcock built one of these in 1833; it is now owned by Childs & Hazard, who put in flax machinery soon after 1880. It is now a combination of a circular saw-mill, a flax-mill and a wagon shop.
