Excerpt from History of the Town of Hingham, Massachusetts, Vol. 1 of 3: Part I, Historical The shore-line of the water-front of the town, as distinct from that Of the boundary, is much more extensive, following as it does the numerous indentures of the coast, and embracing the circum ference of the islands. Notice should be taken of the distinction between the boundary and Shore lines, as they comprise the limits between which the marine forms of life appear that may be here after mentioned.

History of the Lincoln Family

An Account of the Descendants of Samuel Lincoln of Hingham Massachusetts, 1637-1920 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from History of the Lincoln Family: An Account of the Descendants of Samuel Lincoln of Hingham Massachusetts, 1637-1920 The publication in 1893 of a history of Hingham with a full and fairly accurate genealogy of all Hingham residents up to 1889, and the completion and publication of the Waldo Genealogy in 1902, which had engaged the writer's attention for several years, led him to resume his studies of the Lincoln families, and the present volume is the result. The Hingham genealogies provided a firm foundation and with few exceptions proved to be free from error, but every statement and date therein given has been verified or corrected by original records. There were in the little town of Hingham previous to 1640 eight settlers bearing the surname Lincoln, viz.: Daniel the husbandman and his brothers Samuel the weaver and Thomas the weaver; Daniel the sergeant; Stephen and his brother Thomas the husbandman; Thomas the miller and Thomas the cooper. All of these are thought to have come from county Norfolk, England, but so far as has been learned the several families were not interrelated. Daniel the husbandman and Thomas the weaver left no families, the former dying unmarried; but the other six did leave families, and as most of these remained in Hingham or Cohasset, formerly a part of Hingham, for several generations the task of assigning each family to its proper ances tor was no easy one, but it was admirably done by the compilers of the History of Hingham. The history of the family of Samuel Lincoln possesses greater interest for the general American public than that of most fami lies, because it numbers among its members that distinguished and beloved commoner, the late President Abraham Lincoln.

A Reforming People

Puritanism and the Transformation of Public Life in New England

Author: David D. Hall

Publisher: UNC Press Books

ISBN: 0807837113

Category: History

Page: 288

View: 9020

In this revelatory account of the people who founded the New England colonies, historian David D. Hall compares the reforms they enacted with those attempted in England during the period of the English Revolution. Bringing with them a deep fear of arbitrary, unlimited authority, these settlers based their churches on the participation of laypeople and insisted on "consent" as a premise of all civil governance. Puritans also transformed civil and criminal law and the workings of courts with the intention of establishing equity. In this political and social history of the five New England colonies, Hall provides a masterful re-evaluation of the earliest moments of New England's history, revealing the colonists to be the most effective and daring reformers of their day.
