Joseph Porter(44) was born about 1570 in Weary Hall, Cumberland, England. He died on 13 MAY 1649. Joseph Porter, of Weary Hall, armiger, born about 1570, the eldest son of George and Ann, succeeded as a minor in 1587. He also held on 4th October 1599, the manor and old rent of Langrigg, in the parish of Bromfield, once the property of Dolphin; but the Osmunderleys descended from an heiress of the de Langriggs had the demesne and six tenements (Inq. p. m. of Cuthbert Osmunderley, quoted by Whellan, p.216). By 1600, his brother Lancelot was dead and he was in possession of lands in Esdale, Wasdale and Nether Wasdale (Low Holme and Usthwaite); paying in 1605-06, 1625, and 1626, Lands 10 pounds, subsidy 16/-; and in 1628-9, Lands 2 pounds, subsidy 16/- (Subsidy rolls).
He married Ann, daughter of his neighbour Lancelot Salkeld of Whitehall, and Dorothy his wife, daughter of Alan Askeugh of Skeughsby, Yorks.
On August 22nd, 1603, he purchased Ewe Close, Miln Close and Skirmingham Mill, co. Durham, for the use of his son William (Calendar of Committee for Compounding, 1643-60), but Joseph's estate was sequestered for delinquency under the Commonwealth, also Lancelot Salkeld's.
In 1628 Lancelot Fletcher was presented to the rectory of Plumland by Joseph Porter "of Bridekird" esq., notwithstanding a caveat entered by Richard Skelton gentleman (N. and B., ii., p. 119). This was possibly Joseph junior.
In 1629 William Fairfax was presented to the rectory of Bolton by Richard Tolson, on a purchased turn from Joseph Porter, the original patron (Ibid., p. 149); and in 1644 Mr. Porter was one of those who sent provisions to Carlisle during the siege by Lesley. He lived to and advanced age.

Joseph Porter(44) was born about 1645. He died about 1695. Joseph Porter of Weary Hall, born 1645, succeeded at the early age of 5 years to a sequestered estate about which his guardians had much trouble.
CALENDAR OF COMMITTEE FOR COMPOUNDING (1643-1660) p. 2700.
"Joseph Porter of Weary Hall, Cumb. re his estate.
1651, Jan. 29. Richard Skelton of Thornthwaire, Cumb., guardian of Joseph Porter aged 5, begs dishcharge with arrears from 24 Dec. 1649, and return of bonds for payment of rent of an estate in which the child's grandfather, Joseph Porter, who died in May, 1649, and his father George Porter, who died 30 days later, were but tenants for life, but it is still sequestered for the delinquency of the grandfather. The father was never sequestered, and the petitioner is well affected.
1651, Jan. 31. The County Committee is to examine the infant's title to the estate, the date of death of the father and grandfather, &c.
1651, Feb. 5. Skelton begs for possession of the estate on security, pending a hearing, it being the season of the year for tilling the lands.
1651, Aug. 6. The report being ready he begs an order for a speedy hearing, as rents are being received by the County Committee, who propose to let the estate. He begs that they be not disposed of till the judgment is given.
1651, Oct. 8. He begs an order to the County Committee to allow him to receive rents on security pending judgment, being at great charge in educating the infant, and the 2 younger children, and having done his utmost for a hearing, but it cannot be obtained for 3 months. His petition is rejected.
1651, Oct. 22. The hearing ordered for tomorrow.
1651, Oct. 23. Order on report that as the infant's guardian is a Protestant the estate is to be discharged, with arrears from 31 Jan, 1651, and the bonds given up, but the County Committee are to enquire whether the father was not a delinquent as well as a papist, and to see that the infant is brought up a protestant.
1652, Ap. 30. The County Committee report that the two uncles, John and Joseph Porter are recusants, and refuse the oath of abjuation, that Joseph is joint guardian of the child, and has him tuition.
1652, June 18. Order that two thirds of the estates of John and Joseph Porter are to be seized if they refuse the oath, unless they are under age. Skelton is to take care as to the bringing up of the infant in the protestant religion, and to give an account thereof."
All came right at the Restoration, and Joseph aged 19, 31 March, 1665, was in possession, and presented Daniel Hickstetter to the rectory of Bolton (N. and B., ii., p. 149). Soon after he visited York races, and being unfortunate in betting, he then and there sold the advowsons of Bolton and Plumland to Richard Thompson of Arkleby Hall, for 100 pounds down.
In 1686 both the rectors died, and M. Thompson presented the two livings to the Rev. Michael Robinson, reserving 60 pound per annum to himself. Robinson died in 1700, when Mr. Thompson presented the livings to his own son, who became involved in the South Sea Bubble, and was obliged to sell them to Sir Wilfred Lawson for 500 pounds (Whitehaven, by W. Jackson).
Joseph Porter sold the demesne of Scales in the parish of Bromfield to Sir John ballentine; whose heiress brought it to Dykes, and most of the tenements to freehold (N. and B., ii., p. 168); the manors of Bromfield, Langrigg, and Crosby were sold by his executors under his will. In 1678 he acknowledged a debt of 50 pounds to John Thompson of Le Loyneing (Lonnin Head ?) in Irton, miller. The deed is signed by him and ? Musgrave, Henry Salkeld, Philip Stanley and Jo: Laverock. Seal, a coat bearing 3 Martlets; crest a horse's head, couped (Blackhow MSS.)
He died in the early part of 1695, leaving a will showing that he had a colliery at Weary Hall.

In Revolutionary War Pension number S8967 we learn quite a bit about Joseph. I had only a few minutes to view the lengthy file (about 50 pages) and got only 10 pages copied.
Joseph's original pension granted 28 June 1819 was for $8 per month ($96 per year) based on one year of service as a private commencing in March 1782. He was in the Massachusetts 5th regiment commanded by Colonel Newell, in the company commanded by
Captain Joseph Hillin. He enlisted for 2 years and three months, but paid an able bodied man to serve out the remainder of his term. His discharge was at New Windsor, New York in March 1783.
It appears that some problem arose in 1820 regarding Joseph's ownership of property and his pension was stopped or reduced. On 28 May 1835, he was granted a pension of $40 per year retroactive to 4 March 1831. This seems not to have suited him, and
made several attempts to get the stipend restored to $96 per year. His son, Wells Porter, then a Justice of the Peace, was helping him in this effort. Somehow, on 23 Jan 1836, a jury of seven men, at the request of Wells Porter, proclaimed Joseph
"insane by reason of Old age to that degree that there is danger of his destroying his Property and endangering his health by his present course of Conduct but that Confinement is not necessary." This seems to have angered Joseph, and he fought the
allegation. Not sure yet how it all turned out.

He was of the Pioneer settlers from this town, having emigrated from east Hartford in 1810. His father settled on the farm where Capt. Ira Porter now lives. The subject of this notice continued to reside with his father during his minority and on the 31st of December 1831 was married to Miss Hannah Sawin, who with four children, survive to mourn his loss. Soon after his marriage he settled on the farm on Berry Road in this town, which he reclaimed from the wilderness, and on which he continued to reside until his removal to this village, about 13 years since. He was a member in good standing of the Baptist Church in Fredonia for a period of about 40 years, and exemplified his Christian profession by a blameless and useful life. Like that of most of the pioneers of Western New York his life was one of activity & energy, which added to his integrity & uprightness, formed a character of which the large circle of kindred & friends may be justly proud.
the hardships & privations of the early settlers of this county were familiar to him as "household words" & as one after another of these hardy sons of New England ancestry are taken from among us,the recollection of those early & trying times are fading from our memories.

It is unknown when or where Joseph was born, but it was probably around 1760 and his relatives were in the counties joining Wilkes. The early records of Wilkes County do not reveal any other family bearing the name "Porter" other than Joseph and some of his children. Joseph served as a constable in 1778 and saw service in the Revolutionary War at Kings Mountain and Ramseur's Mill. On March 3, 1779, Joseph Porter received a land grant of 349 acres on the South Fork of the Yadkin River. In January 1782, he was paid for various services furnished to the militia during the Revolution. His will was written April 1820 and proved during the October term of court of the same year. This will referred to three children: Joseph Jr., Molly and Francis. The will was witnessed by John Reynolds and John Rousseau, his "trusty friends."

An inventory of the Estate of Joseph Pourter, deceased, follows: "Six Pewter plates, two pewter dishes, Two Basons, one Earthen Pitcher, two Bottles, 1 tea cannister, one quart Bowl, one coffee pot, one coffee mill, one candlestick, one half pint cup, one lantern, one saddle and flesh fork, one half pint dipper, one pint dipper, one fire shovel, one chopping ax, Two Bells, Three cider Barrels, one pair of candle snuffers, one Walnut Chest, Two Chairs, one half Bushell, one half inch Auger, one inch Auger, one hand saw, Two old Saddles, One Cow, one Nail Hammer, one shoe hammer, Three small cags, Two Ovens & lids, One sand Seive, one pot rack & Hook.
According to Kim Barr's "Porters of America" contribution Joseph and Sarah had a son named James. Have written to ask her for source of information on children. I thought this James was my ggg grandfather, but now believe my ggg grandfather was the son of Joseph Porter Jr, which would make Joseph Sr. my ggggg grandfather.
Kim Barr also places Joseph Sr's birth date much earlier (about 1739) but the 1760 date is more in line with marriage and birth dates of children. If the 1760 date is correct, Robert Porter, who was listed in the 1782 Elk Creek Militia with Joseph and William Porter, could not Joseph Sr's son.
Still need to do more research concerning possible daughter Eve Porter (b. abt. 1765) who married Adam Jacob Stailey. Kim Barr's information has the following note: In 1822 Mary Stailey Johnson (Eve's daughter) sent a Power of attorney to David Rousseau of Wilkes Co., NC (son-in-law of Eve) to represent her in her part of the estate of Joseph Porter Sr. deceased (father of Eve???) John Dowdy (son-in-law of Eve) also got the land of Joseph Porter Sr.
