210 The Merriam Genealogy book had two John H(unt) Merriams and it appears as though they were mixed up a bit. They are both shown as having married one SALLY GODDARD, daughter of LEVI and MARY GODDARD.

Since Sally Goddard was listed as having been born in 1801, it does not seem probable that she would have been married to the John Hunt Merriam I who died on the schooner Elizabeth City in 1811, so MFT has corrected our records to show SALLY GODDARD was only wife to the John Hunt Merriam II born in 1800, not the John Hunt Merriam born in 1777. The assumption is also made that the JOHN G listed is the child of the second listed John Hunt Merriam II with Sally Goddard, not the first one born in 1777.

    214 DEFINITION FOR DOUBLE-DATING (when used): A system of double dating used in England and British North America from 1582-1752 for dates falling between January 1 and March 25. This was common practice because the new Gregorian calendar, which went into effect in 1582, but was not officially adopted by the British and the American colonies until 1752, recognized January 1 as the first day of the year, while the old Julian calendar recognized March 25 as the first day. Thus, dates between those two days prior to the calendar change in 1752 were often written with both year numbers (i.e. 5 January 1712/13).

    MERRIAM GENEALOGY IN ENGLAND AND AMERICA, 1906
    Compiled by Charles Henry Pope
    Begins with:

    WILLIAM MERRIAM:

    the first of this line of whom we have at this writing absolute
    proof, and from whom the numbering of the generations in
    this book proceeds, was a resident of the county of Kent cer-
    tainly for many years. In the " Kentish Lay Subsidy Rolls
    we find several entries which definitely point to him."

    " A.D. 1598. Tudeley: Willm. Meryam, in goods iijli.--------- viijs."

    " A.D. 1599. Tudeley: Willm. Merriam, in goods iijli.--------- viijs."

    Similar entries and amounts slightly varying appear for the
    years 1600, 1610, 1611, and 1621, with changes of spelling
    quite sufficient. No record of his residing at Hadlow appears
    in these documents.

    In the deeds of land, the only equivalent of which exist
    in "The Feet of Fines " in early English records, we find the
    following, which must refer to the man we are considering.

    "A.D. 1614. Easter term, 11 James I. John Stylman and George
    Wymble, plaintiffs v. William Myriam and Sara his wife. One messuage,
    three stables, one garden, one orchard, two acres of arable land, one acre
    of meadow and one acre of pasture in Sevenoaks, co. Kent."

    Perhaps this property had come into the family through
    Sara, the wife, and was now being turned into money to be
    used in the business of the "clothier;" for this was the trade
    of William, as we learn from the next document which has
    been found relating to him. He lived to a period when he
    called himself " aged," a word which has been applied to people
    all the way from fifty to a hundred years of age, but which,
    in general, suggests the neighborhood of seventy-five. Whether
    he carried on his business at Hadlow or was living there in
    well-earned comfort after a busy career at Tewdly, where
    we find his eldest son living, no one can say; but his will
    does not mention any buildings or apparatus belonging to
    the trade. A "clothier " was a man who combined the various
    departments of cloth-making and handled the products.
    The carder prepared the wool for the spinster; the weaver
    passed his pieces over to the webster and fuller; the tucker
    got things in shape for the shearman; and the clothier criti-
    cized, accepted, or rejected, and adjusted the prices of the
    cloths, and put them on the market. One of the ancient
    guilds of old Devonshire, that at Exeter, was "The Guild
    of Weavers, Fullers, Tuckers, and Shearmen," whose rec-
    ords the writer examined in 1887. Clothiers were generally
    men who comprehended the entire process of manufactur-
    ing cloth, and who were cloth merchants; so the trade or
    business implied a person of large brain and strong grasp
    of details and good sagacity. It was also usually very prof-
    itable, so that clothiers were very often more wealthy than the
    gentry, as well as more intelligent and virtuous.

    We have no records of the marriage or marriages of William
    Merriam, nor of the births of his children, the records of
    many parishes in the region about Hadlow having been ex-
    amined fruitlessly; still there is reason to hope that some
    parish not yet searched may prove to have been the family
    home while the man was passing along his early manhood
    and bringing up his family.

    In the same way the ancestry of the man is still not really
    established, although the records given in the Appendix fur-
    nish some grounds for constructing a pedigree.'

    Taking the data which we have, then, we may notice the
    region where the cradle of the American family has been found.

    Tudeley, where the family was found in 1598, and where
    Joseph resided at the time of his father's death, is a little
    hamlet close by the town of Tonbridge and only a short dis-
    tance from the famous watering-place of Tunbridge Wells;
    indeed, the medicinal waters come out through the rocks
    here as they do at the celebrated town. There are no sug-

    gestions at present of any former business of importance.
    A clothier living at this point would have to travel a long way
    about to gather much cloth, but that may have been the man-
    ner of the sixteenth and seventeeth centuries. Today hop-
    growing and strawberry-raising occupy the people more than
    sheep-keeping, and there are no hand looms at work now.

    Sevenoaks, where William and Sara sold land in 1614,
    is half a dozen miles northwest from Tonbridge, situated on
    the ridge of sand-hills which divide the county into the Up-
    land and the Weald; it is airy and healthful, with fine views
    of the country, is a market town, and the seat of famous schools.
    Several families of distinction have their seats in the vicin-
    ity.

    Goudhurst, in which William owned land, is 4 miles
    northwest from Cranbrook, 5 south from Marden station
    on the Southeastern Railway, and 43 from London. Most
    of the town is situated on a fine ridge, 419 feet above sea-level,
    commanding a broad prospect. Has long been a prosperous
    farming town.

    Yalding, another place where the family owned property,
    is on low ground near the confluence of the Beult and Teise
    with the navigable Medway, and is often swept by the waters
    in wet seasons; has a railroad station a mile from the vil-
    lage toward Tonbridge; is one of the most extensive hop-
    growing districts of Kent in these days; was a quiet agri-
    cultural region in the period we are studying.

    Hadlow, the family home when the precious will which
    connects old and New England together for this family was
    made, is 4 miles northeast of Tonbridge, and thus very near
    Tudeley. It lies in the Weald and has no special local at-
    tractions, exccpt Hadlow Castle, whose elegant mansion and
    lofty tower are very interesting and quite put its warlike fea-
    tures out of mind. Fruit, wheat, hops, and the sheep indus-
    try in a small way occupy the people. The country is beau-
    tiful and homelike.

    The following will was first discovered in modern times
    by the late William Sumner Appleton, Esq., of Boston, whose
    connection with the family is shown in No. 19. We reprint
    it from the pages of Mr. Charles Pierce Merriam's Collec-
    tions, and add a portion of the will of a brother-in-law (what-
    ever that may have meant) of William Merriam, from the
    same source.

    Sept., 1635; proved 27 Nov., 1635. (Consistory of

    216 Leo and Alice Merriam were pioneers of the annual Michigan Merriam Reunion which has been going on for over 60 years (as of 2010). Leo and his wife, Alice Spencer Merriam, who were distant Merriam cousins, did a lot of research that went into compiling the Michigan connection for the Merriam Family Tree.

    Excerpt from: Historical Report on the Merriam Family (July 1983 - written by Leo and Alice Merriam):
    "This work has required considerable research and has taken us to places like:
    Boston, Massachusetts; Concord, Massachusetts; Brandon, Vermont; Chatham, Ontario, Canada; Merriam, Kansas; Pittsburg, Kansas; Cherokee, Kansas; Malone, New York; Detroit, Michigan; Sacramento, California; and Chico, California.
    We were able to acquire information about the Merriams in all of these places, with the most complete and reliable information at Boston and Concord, Massachusetts, and Chatham, Ontario, Canada."

    Biographical Note:

    On March 19, 1727, The General Court approved the petition of forty English families to purchase 7,500 acres from the Nipmuc tribe at a place called Hassanamisco, now Grafton, Massachusetts, so named for the Duke of Grafton. The Court approved the petition on the condition that they build a place of worship and a school for the instruction of English and Indian children.

    In 1728 each petitioner and Nipmuc Indian received 80 acres of upland and 8 acres of meadow in Hassanamisco.

    On October 28, 1729, Joseph Merriam (b 20 Aug 1677) of Concord, received 42 acres, which he purchased on behalf of his son, Joseph Meriam.

    266 Additional notes from "Merriam Genealogy..." by Charles Henry Pope, 1906:

    Notes for Joseph Merriam.

    Joseph2,(William1), eldest of the sons mentioned in his father's will, and the only one through whom the family name has descended, was probably born in the county of Kent, about the year 1600. He married Sara, df John and (probably) Frances (Jefferie) Goldstone, whose brother was a resident of the town of Tonbridge, near by the home of Joseph and that of his father at the period of the emigration.

    Robert Goldston (sec) of Tonbridge, in the county of Kent, in his will dated 10 April 1637, proved the 16th of May, made the following bequests to his family.

    "To Sara the wife of Joseph Merryam of Tewdly, clothier, my sister, ten shillings . . . and to Hanna Mirriam my goddaughter, the daughter of the said Joseph, one pair of fine sheets."

    "I give & bequeath unto Willia, Sara, Joseph, Thomas, Elizabeth, and Hannah, the six children of the said Joseph Mirriam by the said Sara, his now wife, to either of them the like some of six pounds apiece to be paid them likewise within five years next after my decease."

    The number of these children affords a clue to the length of time which had elapsed since Joseph's marriage, from which we may safely infer that the couple were married about the year 1623. This would suggest that Joseph may have been born about the year 1600. In the same way we get ground for estimating the births of the children in the years 1624, 1626, 1628, 1630, 1632,and 1636. But this is given as simple inference, not as history.

    We know that Joseph had learned and entered on the business which his father had followed, for Robert Goldstone's will gives him the title "clothier," which is evidence of an unquestionable sort. This business had put him in possession of good means for the venture on a voyage to New England, and gave him a good start here. But it would necessarily give him a great deal of work in the line of collections, settlements, sales, and shipments. With so much property and such excellent business experience, it is not strange that he joined with others in chartering a vessel and taking freight and passengers to help pay the expenses of the voyage. The particulars of his venture are many of them brought out in connection with lawsuits between the partners.

    (Please refer to MASSACHUSETTS - Court Case: MERIAM, Joseph, b 1600 above)

    And the notebook of the lawyer, Thomas Lechford, who was doing a notarial business in Boston in those years, contains abstracts of the papers which we present below.

    Joseph made his home in Concord, having a comfortable homestead for a "planter". He was soon receive to the church, and, in accordance with the method of the time was admitted to the freemanship or citizenship of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay on the 14th of the first month, March, 1638-9, nine months after his arrival.

    His life in the colony was brief. He died on the first day of January (1 (11), 1641, leaving a will which shows his business-like habits and his kindly thought for the welfare of others.

    His oldest son William was not yet of age. The expected child had provision made for his support. Two of the foremost citizens of the little town and his brother Robert were charged with the duty of overseeing the carrying out of his plans for his loved ones.

Don was educated at Kennedy Collegiate High School in Windsor, Ontario and Acadia University where he received a BSc in Geology and a BEd. Don taught Math and Science at Halifax West High School, from 1961 to 1965. After moving to Carleton Corner, he taught Earth and General Science and Biology at Bridgetown Regional High School from 1965 to 1993, where he coached boys' basketball for over 20 years. He saw teaching biology as his vocation which allowed him to share his passion of life and nature with generations of students. In Bridgetown, he held offices of Treasurer, Secretary and President of the Lions Club and president of the minor hockey, tennis and badminton clubs. He received a lieutenant's commission in the Reserve Army and instructed first aid at Camp Aldershot for four summers in the 60's and marked final provincial examinations for the Department of Education for several years. Always a gentleman, Don put up a good fight to overcome his illness and was an inspiration to many. He will be remembered for his sense of humour, his puns in particular. His hobbies were downhill and cross country skiing, basketball, tennis, gardening, photography, following the stock market, fishing, and genealogy, writing a book on the Merriam family history. He enjoyed time spent with his family at his cottage on Lake Pleasant for over 30 years and at the Merriam homestead in Port Greville, NS. He was always a great family man and his favourite times were those spent with his wonderful sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren, whom he adored, and it was because of his family that he fought so hard to stay alive.

    288 Albert Butterfield Adams was a descendant of Samuel Adams. John Adams, President of United States was also a descendant of this line.

    Lucy Swain Merriam was raised by a Massey, possibly Baker or Johnathan Massey, after her mother Betsy died. Mae Merriam Porter writes: "With the help of Almira and Aunt Susanna, the oldest ones, he kept the family together, excepting Aunt Lucy who was taken by a Massey to New York (state) to live. She was brought up there and married Uncle Louis B. Adams."

    Also, records of Solon Massey have Oct 24, 1818 for birth date of a Lucy Massey. Marriage dates differ too. Lucy Massey is Nov 7, 1842 and Lucy Merriam Feb 20, 1845.

    In 1845, Lucy Merriam married Albert Butterfield Adams. They had three children, the first son dying in infancy. They moved from New York, USA to CANADA near where her father, Johnson, lived. Their son, Albert W. Adams, went to college in Belleville, Ontario and took up the study of medicine.

    Lucy and Albert then moved to Charlotte, Michigan, USA, and Albert entered Ann Arbor University and graduated with an MD in pharmacy.

    302 Allen Johnson Merriam, born in the Chatsworth, Ontario area, moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba where he worked as a Teamster. He married his first wife, Winnifred Louisa Johnson, in 1894. At some time after their marriage they moved back to Holland Twp, Grey Co, Ontario, where they had three children.

    They then moved to Winnipeg and they had two more children who died young.

    By 1906, Winnifred had left Allen and the three children were found in a children's home.

    By 1908, Allen Merriam is living and married to Sarah Boothy. They go on to have eight children. There are a lot of missing pieces in this family. I am not sure the children are all correct.

    314 Amos Austin Merriam was the 4th son of Austin and Elizabeth Dowd Merriam. He was born in Port Elgin, Ontario, CANADA, and grew up in Harriston. He played sports as a young man and was on the lacrosse team of Harriston. Amos learned the carpenter's trade from his father, Austin Anthony Merriam.

    In 1903, he married Ida Maude Bedford in Harriston, Ontario and they moved to Chatsworth, Ontario, on the corner of Hwy 10 & 6. Amos worked with his brothers, Wesley and Lavern, in construction, building several homes and a church in the area.

    In 1913, Amos and his family moved to Avonlea, Saskatchewan where he ranched and worked for the railroad, putting in spur lines. Amos homesteaded in the Crystal Hill district from 1915 - 1917, now part of John N Donison farm.

    In 1921, the family moved back to Chatsworth, and then to Santa Monica, California for Ida Maude's health. She died there in 1923 of kidney failure and the family moved home to Avonlea.

    Amos lived in Avonlea until his death. He had two more sons in his later years, Ken and Robert. The farm in Avonlea was passed on to his son, Claude Bedford Merriam. (Written by Kit Merriam Cutting)

    "Amos built and repaired many houses in and around Avonlea, also many rural schools. After the Main Street fire in 1935, he rebuilt the Community Hall and McRories' store. To make things and see the result of his efforts was his Idea of a career, and he did it well. Sports held a special place in Amos's life. Curling, hockey, lacrosse and target shooting were his favorites.

    In 1919, the Merriams moved Ida Maude's father, J.B. Bedford's house into Avonlea, Saskatchewan. A living room, bedroom and upstairs were added onto it as the children came. Ida Maude and Amos had 6 children. Carl was born in 1904, died in thupidemic in 1918. The Avonlea school had been turned into a hospital. Ida Maude, Carl's mother, and two sisters were also there. When his father became ill and was taken to hospital, a neighbour was to look after Reg (aged 4) and Iolene (2), but due to a communication gap, they stayed alone at home overnight.

    356 At her parents' death, Timothy (Amadeus Botsford's brother) took Esther, age 5:

    "I find I have not told about Aunt Esther whom you must remember. She came from Kensington to Mary's house in Bristol for a visit and they went to Edward Terry's for a prayer meeting (what vou know as the Dailey Place) and fell on the ice, injuring her back from which she never fully recovered. For 6 years she had to lay in bed and suffered terribly, but was finally well enough to care for Uncle Timothy's widow, who died at 87, leaving her the property you know as Ellen Hutchenson's home. From 1872 to 1899, she made her home with my mother, more or less, and both she and Mary kept house there in 1886 and l887. She died in New Haven at the home of Ellen Botsford Beach the 10th of January 1899, and is buried in Lake Avenue Cemetery (Bristol)."
