In England the names How, Howe and Howes seem originally
to have been synonymous. In Lower's Patronymica Britannica or Dictionary of
the Family Names of the United Kingdom, giving the origin and definition of
family names, is the following: 'How, Howe, Howes. In the South a small round
hill; in the North, a hollow place or plain. The mediaeval form is At How,
generally synonymous with hill. A-Sax Hou, a mountain.'
In the United States the spelling How was generally superseded by Howe about the time of the Revolution, although some descendants of James How still retain the old spelling. "There is abundant evidence that those bearing the names of Howe, How, Hoo and Hooe were numerous in England from an early period."
Most of the Howes in America today are descendants of John of Sudbury and Marlborough, Abraham of Roxbury, Abraham of Watertown and Marlborough, Edward of Lynn and James of Roxbury and Ipswich; all of whom were in Massachusetts soon after the arrival of Governor John Winthrop in 1630. All of them were Englishmen and Puritans. None of the five emigrant ancestors were related to one-another, except that Abraham of Roxbury and James of Roxbury and Ipswich were brothers.

1. EDWARD1 HOWE1,2,3 Indeed, New England's Puritan predilections were so well known that colonial leaders feared retribution from the Anglican establishment in England. In The Planter's Plea, Reverend White specifically sought to dispel rumors that Massachusetts was overrun with Separatists, and during the early 1630s, Edward Howes maintained a steady correspondence with John Winthrop, Jr., concerning similar allegations of New England radicalism. In 1631, Howes reported that "heare i a mutteringe of a too palpable seperation of your people from our church government;" the following year, he informed Winthrop of claims that "you never use the Lords prayer, that your ministers marrie none, that fellowes which keepe hogges all the weeke preach on the Saboth, that every towne in your plantation is of a severall religion; that you count all men in England, yea all out of your church, and in the state of damnacion." Howes worried that the spread of such rumors might endanger not only the colony's reputation but perhaps even its survival.

He was a man of kindly feeling and upright character and his judgement was considered a law. He was often called upon to settle disputes both among his white and Indian neighbors. He always lived on terms of peace with the Indians. He was by occupation a glover. This family has been one of hotel-keepers. Their hospitality made them emminently fitted for such a station.

"By the name of Howe,"
And over this, no longer bright,
Though glimmering with a latent light,
Was hung the sword of his grandshire bore,
In the rebellious day of yore,
Down there in the Concord fight.

The Inn was originally called How's Tavern or the Red Horse Tavern, but after the publication of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Tales Of a Wayside Inn in 1863, the Inn became popularly known as the Wayside Inn. Today it is both a working inn and a museum. This is one version of the history of the Wayside Inn, but it is believed that Thomas was the proprietor another tavern in Marlborough named the Black Horse Tavern, and not the one in Sudbury that became the Wayside Inn.

Farm, according to Suffolk Co. deeds. 1717; Sold the estate in
Sudbury and moved to Framingham. 1727; To Grafton, MA, closer
to Worcester, where he was one of the signed witnesses to the Indian deed
for Grafton. April 9, 1728; The first meeting of the proprietors

How of Marlborough. April 19, 1728; The second proprietors

influential citizen in town affairs, but he must have felt that eastern MA
was getting too crowded. Bought three full township rights for a new
town called Great Meadows, located on the Connecticut River in the southwestern
corner of New Hampshire, just above the MA line. The records of the
deeds are in Springfield, MA. He became a grantee of Township No. 2.
(The Howe, Willard and Sartwell Families of Vernon, VT)
1741; "In the spring of 1741 the first settlers travelled up the river from Northfield in their canoes and poleboats with their families - Nehemiah Howe, his brother Daniel, Jethro Wheeler and William Phipps. King George's War in 1844 placed them in danger, and they joined with others from Putney, VT in building a fort on the "Great Meadow" in Putney, on the west side of the river. Nehemiah and the others moved into the fort for protection. However, the Indian raids continued. On Oct. 11, 1745, while returning to the fort from cutting wood, Nehemiah was set upon by 12 Indians. He was captured, taken prisoner and carried to Canada. After 18 months in prison, he died on May 27, 1747 of "prison fever" shortly before he was to have been released. His journal kept during his captivity was of great value in that it recorded information on other captives whose fate otherwise would never have been known. His journal was published in 1748, and a copy of it follows herein. His death was a severe blow to his family and to the community, where it was written "he was greatly beloved by all who knew him."
After Nehemiah's death, Margaret returned to Grafton and married Ensign James Miller. When she died nine years later in 1758, the Rev. Ebenezer Parkman of Westborough wrote "....she was a woman of many virtues; her death is not only a great loss to me and mine, but to all ye place. May ye God of all Grace sanctifie it to me and mine to ye bereaved Ensign....and to all ye Relatives and neighborhood."

19. CALEB6 HOWE (NEHEMIAH5, SAMUEL4, JOHN3,
JOHN2, EDWARD1)1999,2000,2001,2002 was
born December 31, 1723 in Framingham, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts2003,2004,2005,2006,
and died June 28, 1755 in Hinsdale, New Hampshire2007,2008,2009,2010.
He married JEMIMA SAWTELL2011,2012,2013,2014,2015
Abt. 17462016,2017,2018,2019, daughter of JOSIAH SAWTELL and LYDIA NUTTING. She was born
March 07, 1723/24 in Groton, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts2020,2021,2022,2023,
and died March 07, 1805 in Vernon (then Hinsdale), Vermont2024,2025,2026,2027.
He lived for a time in Northfield, Mass., and afterwards in Vernon, Vt.
He was in Capt. Phineas Stevens Company 1746-49, and was a sergeant at No.
4, and wrote to Capt. Stevens an account of the attack on that place 20 June
1749. He was mortally wounded 27 June 1755, when Fort Bridgman was
taken, and died the next morning at Hinsdale, where his gravestone is still
to be seen. His wife and her seven children, the oldest of whom was
11 years and the youngest only six months, were captured by the Indians.
The two eldest were daughters by her first husband, William Phipps, the others
were her children by Caleb. She and her children were taken to Canada,
but she and three of her children were redeemed and brought home before 1760
by Col. Schuyler. She afterwards returned to Canada, and obtained her
second daughter, Submit Phipps. She is known as the "Fair Captive"
in the stories of the Indian wars. In his oration on New Hampshire
(Oct.7, 1853) Edward Everett says, "There is nothing in the Waverley novels
that surpasses in interest the subsequent adventures of Mrs. Howe in the
captivity of herself and children among the Indians and Canadian French less
than a century ago." (Howe Genealogies, John Howe of Sudbury and Marlborough,)
Removed with his father to Westmoreland, Little is known about the early life of Caleb and his sisters and brothers in Sudbury, Framingham and Grafton. Apparently the whole family was together when the parents paddled up the Connecticut River in 1741 to No. 2, now known as Westmoreland, New Hampshire, where he was elected town clerk, March 31, 1752. Soon after he removed to Vernon, Vermont, which was formerly a part of the town of Hinsdale, New Hampshire.
As Marguerite Allis described so vividly in her historical novel, "Not Without Peril", Caleb took part in many of the Indian battles in the late 1740's. He was in Capt. Phineas Stevens Co. in 1746-9. He was a Sergeant at No. 4 when he wrote Capt. Stevens an account of the attack there in June, 1749. At that time, a son of the Captain was taken captive and Ensign Obadiah Sawtell, a brother of Josiah, Jemima's father, was killed.
In 1747 The Indians attacked and burned Bridgeman's Fort on the west side of the river in what is now Vernon, VT, then part of Hinsdale, NH. After it was rebuilt, Caleb's family became members of the garrison family until a peace treaty was signed by the French and English in 1749. Then Caleb's family settled into Sartwell's forthouse, a short distance north of Bridgeman's.
The town of Hinsdale, then included both sides of the river, was chartered in Sept. 31, 1753. Caleb was made a constable of the new town at the first proprietors meeting held at the home of Thomas Chamberlain. At a latter proprietors meeting he was made clerk.
Peace didn't last long. In 1754, the "last French and Indian War", began when Great Britain's King again declared war against France. When the Indians attacked Charlestown (No. 4) and carried away the Johnson family, the various families in the valley left their farms and took refuge in the forts. Some went to Fort Dummer, some to Hinsdale's and the Hows, Gaffields and Grouts went to Fort Bridgeman.
It was quiet during the winter and spring, but on June 27, 1755, Indians suddenly attacked Caleb Howe, Hilkiah Grout and Benjamin Gaffield as they were returning to the Fort from the meadow by the river where they had been hoeing corn. Caleb was on horseback with his two oldest sons. He was shot by the Indians and fell to the ground, where he was peirced with a spear and scalped. The two boys were captured. Gaffield and Grout tried to escape by swimming the river. Grout made it, but Gaffield drowned.
The Indians then managed to enter the forthouse. Jemima and the two other women were made captives, along with nine children; three Grouts, one Gaffield, and five Hows. Caleb was found still alive the next morning by men from Fort Hinsdale and was carried back to Fort Hinsdale where he died.
He was buried in a field near the fort on the east side of the present day Rt. 119 between Brattleboro and Hinsdale. When the property was purchased as a tobacco field in about 1918, the grave was moved to the Hooker Cemetary in Hinsdale.
In company with two others, Hezekiah Grout and Benjamin
Garfield, Caleb Howe was engaged in hoeing corn in June, 1755, in the meadow
on the east side of the Connecticut river and started on the night of June
27 of that year to return to Bridgman's Fort on the Connecticut river, just
below Fort Sartwell. They were attacked by twelve Indians in ambush, and
Howe, who had two young lads on the horse with him, was brought to the ground
by a shot in his thigh. They also pierced him with spears and tore off his
The next morning he was found by a party from Fort Hinsdale still living, and was carried to the fort where he died. Grout escaped unhurt, and Garfield was drowned while trying to escape. The Indians took the wives of these three men, Jemima Howe, Submit Grout and Eunice Garfield, a child of Garfield, three children of Grout, and seven children of Mrs. Howe, the eldest of the latter being eleven years old, and the youngest six months. The two eldest were children by her first husband, William Phipps, who was also slain, July 5, 1743, by Indians. The Indians plundered and fired the fort. After camping one night six Indians returned to the fort to do more destruction. The next morning they started on the long journey to Canada, and sold their captives in Montreal. Mrs. Howe's youngest daughter was given to Governor De Vaudreuil. Her baby was carried off by a hunting party to Missiquoi, on Lake Champlain, where he died. Mrs. Howe was kindly treated by the French and was finally ransomed and returned home. Her eldest daughter was taken to France and married a Frenchman; the other children were scattered.

JEMIMA SAWTELL: The following is an extract from a letter by John Howe, one of the descendants, to Elias Howe, dated 4 Sept. 1871; "Nehemiah Howe, the father of her (Jemima Howe's) second husband, was killed by the Indians in Charlestown, N.H.: (see New England Gazetteer.)[from LCB-this is not true. Nehemiah died in a Quebec prison 25 May 1747, per "The Captivity of Nehemiah How]. Caleb Howe, the husband of Mrs. Jemima Howe, was killed by the Indians June 27, 1755, within a short distance of Fort Sartle. (A very interesting account of Mrs. Howe's captivity is to be found in the "American Preceptor" page 176). His body was buried on the plain on the east side of the Connecticut River opposite Fort Sartle, and the following is the inscription o the old moss-covered blue stone: "In memory of Mr. Caleb Howe a very kind companion, who was killed by the Indians June 27, 1755. His wife Mrs. Jemima Howe and seven children were taken captive at the same time." Mrs. Howe returned from her captivity in company with Gen. Putnam (see Harpers Magazine 1856, vol. 12 page 588; also "The Mountain Hero" page 100) and she was known as the "Fair Captive." One of her sons, Capt. Moses Howe, built and kept a tavern on the same farm where her father was killed, and that house is still standing on the very spot where Fort Sartle used to stand, - the first having been taken down in 1838 and the present house moved to the spot where Fort Sartle stood about half a mile north of Bridgman's Fort, which was burnt at the time of Mrs. Howe's capture in Vernon, Vt., formerly called Hinsdale. ("Howe Genealogies, John Howe of Sudbury and Marlborough," Daniel Howe, ed. Gilman Howe)
Jemima and the other captives endured a forced walk for eight days to Crown Point on Lake Champlain, and were then taken to Canada. Jemima's six month old baby was taken from her and eventually starved to death. Her oldest daughter was put in a convent and later taken to France and married to a French nobleman, Cron Lewis. After five years, Jemima having become known as the 'Fair Captive', was ransomed and recovered her remaining five children. (The Howe, Willard and Sartwell Families of Vernon, VT)
Aft 1781; The three children of her daughter Submit Phipps Willard, were very young when their mother died in 1781. Family notes indicated that they were brought up by Jemima and Amos Tute, and after Amos died in 1790, by Jemima. They were listed as grandchildren and heirs of Jemima in her will along with William How. Charlotte apparently was not married and died young. What happened to Jonathan is not known. Mary, also known as Polly, married her cousin William How. (The Howe, Willard and Sartwell Families of Vernon, VT)
JOHN BORDWELL When a boy he went to live with his Aunt Jemima Howe, who had m. Amos Tute, a brother of John's mother. Jemima Howe was famous by reason of her suffering by having her two first husbands killed by the Indians, viz. Wm Phipps and then Caleb Howe. When the last was killed she and her seven chn were made captives and carried to Canada. One of her children was killed and one, the eldest, a dau., m. a French gentleman and went to France. By her heroism she was liberated with the other chn and returned to New England. After her marriage with Amos Tute, she had two more chn and he died in 1790. It was with this heroic woman that John lived. -JMC
MOSES BARDWELL was a farmer. His aunt Jemima Howe lived, we think, at Fort Hinsdale which we think was on the Vermont side of the Connecticut, and Moses, being with her, settled in that vicinity. - JMC
Story of her life told on her tombstone and in a book about her life. Both of her first 2 husbands were killed by the Indians and she with 7 children were captured by them after the murder of her 2nd husband Caleb Howe. They walked overland to Crown Point and were taken to Canada. The youngest of the children died in captivity of starvation when it was taken from it's mother in the Indian village. Her oldest daughter was sent to France where she was married. Jemima was ransomed in 1758 by the state of New Hampshire and returned with sons William, Caleb and Squire. Her son Moses was ransomed later, and Jemima herself returned to Canada to rescue her youngest daughter from a convent shortly before she was to be sent to France. In her captivity she was called "Fair Captive". In 1941 her story was told by Marguerite Allis in "Not Without Peril", New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1941. (Vermont Families in 1791)
Mrs. Jemima Tute
Sucessively Relict of Messrs.
William Phips, Caleb Howe & Amos Tute
The first two were killed by Indians
Phips, July 5, 1743
Howe, June 27, 1755
When Howe was killed she & her children,
Then seven in number,
Were carried into captivity;
The Oldest, a daughter, went to France
And was married to a French Gentleman.
The Youngest was torn from her breast
And Perished with Hunger.
By the aid of some benevolent Gent'n
And her own personal Heroism
She recovered the rest.
She had two by her last husband.
She outlived him & them
And died March 7, 1805, aged 82
Having passed hrough more vicisitudes
And endured more Hardships
Than any of her contemporaries.
"No more can Savage Foes annoy
Nor aught her wide spread Fame Destroy."
In Vernon, VT a flagpole and monument occupy the spot
where Fort Bridgeman stood near the bank of the Connecticut River. A
short distance along the road to the north is the location of Fort Sartwell,
built about 1739 by Josiah Sartwell, Jemima's father. Just to the north
of that at the border between present day Vernon and Brattleboro, VT, Broad
Brook flows eastward into the River. Broad Brook was the northerly
line of the property willed to the heirs of Jemima. The land totaled
340 acres and was valued at $3000 when she died.
Jemima's story became part of the "American Preceptor", a reading book used in the schools of New England and New York in the early part of the 19th century. It was also published in Harper's Monthly magazine in April 1856. Also included in the book "Indian Captivities" or "Life in the Wigwam" by Samuel G. Drake, published by Derby, Miller, and Co. in Auburn, NY in 1850. (The Howe, Willard and Sartwell Families of Vernon, VT)

(34) LYDIA FARNSWORTH6218,6219,6220,6221 May 08, 1870. When
he was 3 years old his father took the family to western New York, where
Brigham grew up to be a skilled carpenter and joiner. In 1830 he read a copy
of the Book of Mormon and 2 years later was baptized into the Mormon church.
This sect was founded by Joseph Smith, which, according
to his testimony, was the result of visions. In 1835 Brigham Youngwas made
an Apostle, of which there were twelve, with powers second only to Joseph
Smith. In 1843 Smith authorized the practice of pologamy which led to a schism
in the Church and resulted in his arrest. An angry mob dragged him from prison
and assasainated him in 1844. After the lynching Brigham Young was made President
of the Mormon Church at a general conference in Nauvoo, Ill. He organized
and supervised the migration of 5,000 Mormons across the Great Plains and
they founded Salt Lake City 7/24/1847, where he was formally elected head
of the Mormon Church. Besides establishing Salt Lake City as the center for
the church, Young sent colonizing parties throughout Utah, Idaho, Nevada,
Arizona, and California where he helped found more than 350 cities and towns.
To populate these new communities, he directed the immigration of 50,000
new settlers from the Midwest and Europe as a means of securing his primary
goal, the establishment of the kingdom of God on Earth.
The Mormons built canals to irrigate the soil and engaged in farming and home industry. Young wanted to establish a people who were economically self-sufficient, and, therefore, he organized a cooperative system during the 1870s called the United Order. The orders differed from town to town, with the greatest regimentation occurring in those communities where the members ate and worked together as an enlarged family, and the least in those communities which sponsored a cooperative factory or farm as a part-time enterprise. In 1849 the U.S. government organized the Utah territory, and Young was appointed governor. After receiving false reports that the church was in rebellion against the government, President James Buchanan in 1857 sent troops to Utah. After negotiations the troops settled southwest of the capital. Young was replaced as governor, but he continued to be the most influential person in the territory. He was challenged by federal authorities during the last few years of his life, primarily because of Mormon plural marriage. In 1852 he endorsed the doctrine of polygamy. For over forty years this doctrine prevented the admission of Utah as a state. In 9/1890 William Woodruff, then President of the Church, issued his famous manifesto discontinuing plural marriages and in 1896 Utah was admitted into the Union. He had children by 16 women and was married to many others who were widows.
As a colonizer and administrator, Young was a master at organization and planning. As a religious leader, he inspired people to follow his counsel and to devote their energies to the spread of Mormonism.
