JOHN5 HARRIS (John4, Thomas3) was born in Rowley October 8, 1649. He married Esther, probably daughter of Richard and Susanna Stackhouse of Beverly, about the year 1672. He established himself in Ipswich as a gunsmith and locksmith, and accumulated a considerable property. He and his wife were admitted to full communion in the Ipswich church in 1674, and he took the freeman's oath in 1685. For many years he was under-sheriff of Essex County, and from 1696 his name appears on the records with the title of marshal. The Haverhill land which he obtained from his father was disposed of in 1685. Harris died in 1714, and his grave-stone bears the following inscription: "Here Lyeth ye Body of Mr. John Harris under Sheriff who died Sept ye 15 1714 in ye 64 year of his age." The will of John Harris, Senior, of Ipswich was made July 16, 1714, and proved the following November 13. He left his house and homestead, one-half of the furniture and implements and an annual allowance of 5 to his wife Esther during her widowhood. To his son Thomas he devised all of his land in Gloucester except the lot at Pigeon Cove and the lot bought from Tarr. To his sons John and Samuel were left the rest of his land in Ipswich, Gloucester, Coxhall and elsewhere, except the Pigeon Cove lot, to be equally divided between them, and they were also to have the homestead after the death of their mother, to whom they were to pay 4 annually. His son John was to have his cane, gold ring and shoe buckles, and his wearing apparel and armory were to be divided among his three sons. The lot at Pigeon Cove he devised to three grandsons, sons of his son John, their father to hold it during their minority. Of his daughters, Abigail Burnham was bequeathed 10 and one-half of the furniture, Esther Chapman 10, Mary Harris 40 and Margaret Harris 40. His wife and sons John and Samuel were named executors. A paper headed "Quittance to Marshall John Harris, Ipswich" was filed in the probate court in 1719 by which Job Burnham who married Abigail Harris, Samuel Chapman who married Esther Harris, Anthony Smith who married Margaret Harris, and Chapman, as attorney for Grindall Knight who married Mary Harris, all daughters of Mr. John Harris of Ipswich, receipted to their brothers John and Samuel for their share in their father's estate.
