Generation No. 2

2.  HENRY2 MESSENGER (ANDREW1 MESSINGER) was born 1618 in England1, and died March 15, 1671/72 in Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts - or 1681? or 1686?1.  He married SARAH 1640 in Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts1.
October 31, 1655, witness to will of George Stevens with James Bushell, Edward Smith2
Abt. 1656, of Jamaica, Long Island?3 Military Service: 1658, artillery co.1665, freeman3 March 15, 1677/78, will written - estate appraised April 30, 16813
Occupation: joiner - doctor?3
His father Andrew owned land a short distance away - either part way up what is now Beacon St. or across Court St. Henry's tax indicated he owned 5 acres, but his "house & garden" which covered just about half the block toward Washington St. and was the center third between School and Court Sts, was probably about 1 1/2 acres. The remaining acreage may have been his "great lott at Muddy River (Back Bay) for two heads."
His house, possibly though probably not the same one shown in this sketch, stood where Ezekiel Price's is shown - and it, together with all his land, was willed at his death in 1681 to his wife Sarah (Callowe) (?) and then by her, in 1697, with half the land to their son Simeon. He and his wife Bethia (Howard), having no sons, left it to their daughter Bethia and her husband John Green.
William Brattle bought the property (1765) and sold it in 1781 to William Scollay who lived there until he sold it to Ezekiel Price in 1793. The Direct Tax of 1798 describes the property as having 6240 sq. ft. with a two-story brick house (approx. 31 ft x 21 ft) with 19 windows having 192 sq ft. of glass plus two wooden outbuildings of 216 and 100 sq ft. - the total valued at #3,000.
The other half of Henry Messinger's estate was willed by his wife to their son Thomas (common ancestor of most of those spelling their name with an "i" in the U.S. today) who may have actually built in the late 1600's the house owned by Rufus G. Amory in 1800. Thomas, a 'joiner' like his father, lived in the house with his wife Elizabeth (Mellowes) until their deaths in 1720-1. Some time afterward it became the residence of various rectors of King's Chapel. The Rev. Henry Caner of K.C. bought it in 1756..."an old wooden building covered with rough cast". During the Revolution this Anglican pastor escaped to Halifax, Nova Scotia with British troops with the church records and 2800 ounces of its silver service. The records were recovered later, but the silver had disappeared forever.  The property was sold again in 1782 - and was described in the Direct Tax of 1798, when owned by Rufus G. Amory, as being 3 stories of brick and wood on 1000 sq ft. foundation with 23 windows totalling 315 sq ft. of glass, on 5750 sq. ft of land and valued at $4000.
The Boston Athanaeum occupied three rooms of the house from 1810-1822. It was torn down before 1840 when a stone building was erected for a Savings Bank and the Massachusetts Historical Society. When the Historical Society moved to the Back Bay about 1900, the office building which today occupies all the land between the cemetary and Court St. was built.  Looking at this building from across Tremont St., it would seem that just about half of it (nearest the cemetary) lies on the land which may have been first "owned" by Henry Messinger."  (photocopy of page from an unnamed source sent to me by a Messinger descendant).

Dear Brother; -
I have not written to you before for I have been rather busy but Mother reminded me of it to day so I will let you know that I am alive and well.
I am studying some now and begining to get interested in my work. My main study is anatomy of course for awhile. I take every lecture and every grind. I have to exercise a quite a good deal now at first. I think I am going to like it very much. We don't begin disecting until Christmas time or somewhere about there. It seems funny to me not have any chores to do. We get first class board for $2.00 a week and good room heat and lighted for 1.00 a week. It seems funny to me not to run with girls too. I have said but a very few words to a girl since I came here but I will get along with that all right I guess. How are all of your numerous girls now? If you had have only spoke about it I would have went around by Buffalo and seen Julia for you when I came. I can go that way when I come home Christmas if I come home that is if you say so. How is business now. Do you collect half you make? Don't get discouraged at first for all people say a young doctor has got to start and the first year is always hard. I board about five minutes walk from College so I get some exercise by walking to College and back. How is Chief now? Don't worry yourself about paying for him for I can get along this year maybe without it. I will for some time yet anyway so don't worry about it. Last Sunday they had a big parade here. All of the standing army got out the Highlanders and all the bands of the city and paraded around and marched up into some hall and put in a new general. They have such a parade every year and put a new general into office. It seem queer to see the redcoats running around here. That is English style though. I saw an English steeple chase one Sat here on the reacegrounds and all sorts of running and English horseback riding but not troting as we have in NY state. Write when you have time to. ever your loving brother.    F.A.M." (Letter to Milton P. Messinger from his brother Fred A. Messinger.)
December 26, 1899;  from James and Ann to son Fred, for $100.00 - in town of Smithfield, southwest division of Lot 11 in New Petersburgh Tract. 3 63/100 acres.  And for $2,000.00 a little south of Peterboro part of Lot 26 & 33 of New Petersburgh Tract on Old Nelson Rd. southwest corner of Neil Eastman's land to northwest corner by Daniel Cameron - then to Reuben Rich's & next to Henry Berry, for total of about 50 acres.  This is the same property formerly owned by Milton L.
