INTRODUCTION.
Some
had somewhat more
twenty-five years ago, when the compiler of the following pages of leisure at his conimand than it has been his
privilege

information and pleasure, a genealogy of his branch of the Barrett family. In the prosecution of this purpose, he spent no little time examining the records of Middlesex and other counties in Massachusetts, the town records of several towns in those counties, and such town histories as were then to be found in the excellent and valuable libraries of the Massachusetts
Historical Society

to enjoy in later years, burdened as they have been with the cares, responsibilities and duties of a laborious and exacting profession, he indulged, to some extent, in historic-genealogical study and investigation, and became so much interested therein that he determined to prepare for hispersonal

and the New England Historic-Genealogical

which he was a member, and thus gathered, in a crude form, much valuable material and information relating to the Barrett and other families. He soon learned, however, that the work, which in the ardor and enthusiasm of youth he had undertaken to perform, was much greater than he could reasonably expect to carry to a successful termination, with the time and

Society, of

means at
for

his command. Nor was this the only reason that induced him, a long time at least, to abandon the undertaking. Early in his investigation he found that such learned and accomplished specialists in genealogical studies as Savage, Shattuck, Hudson and

others had seriously erred in some of their genealogical tracings, or else that the compiler of this work was misreading the early records of Middlesex towns and county, or was misapplying the facts and information therein
contained, and consequently was arriving at erroneous conclusions. To say the least, this was discouraging to one whose inexperience in such matters would naturally lead him to accept and adopt, as conclusive, the result of the investigations of those who, for many years, had been, ana still were, unquestioned authorities in matters of New England genealogy. It would have been the grossest presumption for the compiler to have intimated a doubt as to the accuracy of such eminent In the authority. language of one of the most eminent and accomplished genealogical scholars of New England to-day, Mr. George Tolman of Concord. Mass. "All of these works" (alluding to the works of Savage, Shattuck, Hudson and of "Wyman's Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown") "being printed and in the hands of every New England genealogist, are widely accepted as authority, and the man who undertakes to say that any particular statement of any of these authors is erroneous, must be prepared with evidence that will stand the most thorough and critical analysis and
:

examination."

To illustrate the doubts, contradictory statements and diflPiculties which early beset the compiler, let him cite two instances, not because these two were more embarrassing than a great many others which he found, but because they are fairly characteristic of the others.

his great-grandfather was 110 Oliver that this Oliver Barrett married 208Anna Fiske(o), daughter of Ebenezer and Bethiah (Muzzy) Fiske, of Lexington, Mass., October 24, 1754: and he also very well knew the names and dates and places of birth of thechildren of 110Oliver(4) and208Anna(5) (Fiske) Barrett. This knowledge was jiositive and reliable. It had come to the com]jiler fi-om his father and his uncle, both of whom for many years

mentioning the settlement of the hrst Humphrey Barrett at Concord, Mass.), that "Oliver Barrett, a granrlson of the emigrant (Humphrey Barrett, Ren.) married October 24. 1754, Anna Fiske, of Lexington, and

is, and Shattuck, Savage and Hudson very well knew it, that the emigrant Humphrey Barrett, Sen., had grown up sons when he arrived in New England. He had, it is true, a grandson Oliver: but that grandson Oliver died unmarried in 1671, nearly sixty years before the Oliver Barrett who married Anna Fiske in October, 1754, was born, as may be seen in the tracing of Humphrey Barrett.

The spcond instance referred to relates to the emip:rant ITliomas Rarwho came to New Knghmd about KiHo, and tirst settled in of Braintree, Mass., and also to his sou, iThomas Barrett(2), Jun., both whom afterwards (the latter in 1(500 and the former about 1663) settled in Chelmsford, Mass., and shows how unuece.ssaril,v and inexcusably inaccurate and contradictory in his statements l>r. Savage could be. Dr. Savage says (Gen. Diet., Vol. 1. pp. 125 and 126), "Thomas Barrett of Braintree, was admitted freeman, 1645 married, 14 Sept., 1655, Frances Woolderson had Martha b.. 17 Sept., 1656: Mary b., 17 April, 1658, and perhaps others, and died at Chelmsford 1668. In his will of 1 July, 1662, probated Aug. following (August, 1662) he names wife Mar^are* (not wife Frances), eldest son John, son Thomas and youngest son Joseph." Dr. Savage's grave mistake in the above quotation is made most apparent by the italicized words, names and dates. The facts are that Thomas Barrett, Sen., had wife Margaret; that they had at least three children, sons (probably more), John, Thomas and Joseph; that their second son,

excuse for the grave and misleading mistake in names and dates inade by
Dr. Savage.

Mr. Tolnuin,couimenting on this error in confounding names and dates, " Herein Dr. Savage, as in many other instances, confounds two indisays viduals of the same name, and as will be noticed, admits to probate in August, 1602, the will of a man who, as he says in the same paragraph, died In other words, Dr. Savage would, from his statement, have us in 1668. believe that Thonms Barretfs will was probated in his lifetime and more than four years before he died. The marriage of Thomas Barrett and Frances Wooldei'son and the birth of the two daughters are, however, correctly cited from the Braintree records.

"This conclusively shows that there were two Thomas Barretts, father and son, living in Braintree in April, 1663. It shows, moreover, that James Parker, the grantor in said deed, died between November, 1664, and Seijtember, 1665, and that his widow married some one of the Barrett family, though I can find no record of such marriage."

of instances.

It is possible that Thomas, Sen., of Braintree; Humphrey, Sen., of Concord: James, Sen., of Charlestown, (1635) and John of Marlboro, all of whom emigrated to New England about the same time, may have been related to each other, but if so, owing; to the imperfection of the early records, it is not easy, if indeed it is possible, to determine now, precisely, by what degree of consanguinity these several families were connected. It is hardly probable, however, that these four families are another instance of the traditional "three brothers'" (four) "who came over from England together,'" of w hich so much has been said and written of other families with but little foundation in fact. Mr. Charles Edward Potter, who has recently published a very carefully edited work, entitled "Genealogies of Some Old Families of Concord, Mass., and their Descendants," after a most diligent and thorough investigation, arrived at practically the same conclusion as that above stated, and so wrote to the compiler: while Mr. George Tolman, who has given the subject quite as thorough an investigation as any one, is inclined to the opinion that these different families of Barretts were, to a greater or less degree, related to each other by ties of consanguinity. His opinion is justly entitled

to great weight. The reader will naturally inquire why the compiler, after having once abandoned his purpose to prepare a genealogy of his branch of the Barrett

work and now presents it in such a fragmentary and The reason, briefly stated, is this: Some three unsatisfactory form. years or more ago the citizens of Wilton, X. H., (the native town of the compiler,) voted to publish a history of the town, and appointed a
family, resumed his

committee to collect the material and prepare the same for publication. While on a visit at Wilton, soon after the action of its citizens above referred to, the compiler was requested by a member of that committee (an old and esteemed friend of his father) to whom it was known that the compiler had, at one time, collected a good deal of material relating to his family genealogy, to prepare for and furnish to the publication committee, a tracing of the genealogy- of his grandfather, Ebenezer, and his (Ebenezer's) brother Benjamin, (both of whom had settled in Wilton early in the present century 1803), and their descendants. A promise having been made to How prepare and furnish the tracing asked for, the work had to be done. should it be done? How elaborate and complete a tracing should be made? Where should it begin and where end? After having examined and arranged the material collected many A-ears ago, the compiler decided to commence with his first American ancestor,

iThomas

Barrett(l), Seu., of Braintree, and trace

all of his (IThoiiia.s(l),

descendants in the ma /? line to 110 Oliver Bax-rett(4) of Chelmsford. Mass., and from that point to make a full and /-omplete tracing of the descendants of 110 01iver(4) and 208Anna(o) (Fiske) Barrett, to the latest born of the present generation. Such has bepn the intent and purpose of the compiler. Although the names and the dates and places of birth of the lemales in each generation, down to and inchiding the fourth, and, in some cases, the fifth generation, have been given in these tracings as fully as the same appear in the records, and also, whenever it has been possible to

obtain them,

no case has there been any attempt to trace the descendants of the female line of the family, x>rior to 11001iver(4) and 208Anna(o) (Fiske)

To have pursued any other course would have taken more time than the compiler had at his disposal, and would have largely increased the size of this book. For similar reasons, no attempt has been made to extend the tracings of the three brothers and the four sisters of 110 Oliver Barrett(4). To have done so would have more than quadrupled the .size of the book.

In the prejiaration of the following pages, the compiler has consulted his own convenience and has made his tracings in his own way.

David Fiske^, Sen., as he was our early records, was not only one settlers, but became one of the most

prominent and useful men in the precinct. 'He headed the subscription for a meeting house in 1692, and on the organization of a parish a year after, he was chosen clerk, and one of the selectmen or assessors. He was also chosMi chairman of a committee to purchase of the town of Cambridge a lot of laud for the support of the ministi-y. These and similar offices he frequently held under the parish. He was also a member of the church organized in 1(396. and his wife immediately after removed her relation from the church in Cambridge to the
church gathered in the precinct. He not only served his fellow citizens in a civil and religious, but also in a military capacity, as appears by the prefix, Lieut., which is often in the I'ecords connected with

after

his

graduation he went to Richmond, Vir-

where he taught for some time in a Ladies' Seminary, of which ''"'*Prof. William McKenzie was meanwhile he attended medical lecthe principal tures at the Hampden Sydney Medical College of Richmond, Virginia, from which he was graduated and received his medical diploma in 1841. As evidence of the high esteem in which ^^'Dr. Reed was held by the faculty of the Hampden Sydney Medical College, I am permitted to insert here a copy of a letter of recommendation, given to him by one of his instructors, a professor in the Medical College, a short time before he left Richmond for his new home in Amherst, Mass. "Richmond, April 12th, 1842. "Dr. Wm. B.

(447)

son of the age of Dr. Reed, who was so thoroughly grounded in anatomical studies, both theoretical and })ractical, as he is. Dr. Reed, by his skill and attentions, endeared himself to the paupers of our

Almshouse, and his practice was through Providence blessed by signal success. "Language is almost incapable of expressing the friendly feelings I entertain towards Dr. Reed, and of course it is useless for me to attempt further recommendation. "^"Th. Johnson, M.

he was eminently successful both as a physician and a surgeon; and at the time of his death in 1846, although but thirt3^-three yeai-s of age, he had easily, by his sterling ability, uniform success,

by thorouglily comnurses, and having had her

attention called also to the great difficulty of securing the services of such nurses, she resolved to dedicate her
life

and

in

order to

to the education and training of nurses, prepare herself for this work, she

entered, in October 1873, the

Brooklyn Maternity, a small hospital for women and children, and the first in this country to establish ,as one of its departments a training school for nurses. In this school she completed the regular course of six months, and then engaged in private nursing for a few months. Her experience as a private nurse soon convinced her that her' education and training as yet were deficient and incomplete, and in October,
1874, she entered the training school of the Bellevne Hospital, New York City, where she remained
until April 1875, when,

on account of

failing health

she was obliged to sever her connection with that school. In June, 1875, after a rest of two months

she went back to the Brooklyn Maternity' Hospital as Superintendent of the nursery and children's

department, whei-e she remained until May, 1876. At this time (May, 1876) she yielded to the call of a dear friend who needed her services as nurse, and
resigned her position in the Maternity Hospital. In 1877 she was placed in charge of the children's ward of the Boston City Hospital (said to be the
finest

and best equipped hospital where she remained one year,

Samuel Barrett^, the eldest son of -*^Maj. Benjamin FiskCg and ^^^Betsey (Gerrish) Barrett, received his rudimentary education in the "District Schools" of W^ilton. N. H.

"Wilton was,'' at the time (1803-1813) "a quiet, secluded, and almost isolated farming town." This was before the days of railroads, telegraphs, cotton and woolen mills and machine shops.

The introduction of these "great promoters of wealth and civilization," has wrought a wonderful change in the "quiet and secluded" town of that
day.

With such parents as Dr. William Pitt and Mary (Langdon) Greenwood, so gentle and amiable in their manners, and so cultivated and refined in tlieir tastes and associations as they were, it would indeed be a matter of no little surprise if the sweet and lovely child, Mary Susan Greenwood, under the watchful and tendei- care, training and education of her parents, from her earliest childhood surrounded by, and brought in almost daily contact with the brightest and most highly cultivated minds of the eminent men and women of Boston, had not developed into a beautiful, cultivated and accomplished woman, so amiable and winning in her manners and so gentle, generous, sympathizing and affectionate in her nature as to win the love and respect of all who were brought within the charmed circle of her acquaintance and friendship.
She was, indeed, a fit conqianion for her beloved husband, Dr. Barrett, in all his arduous labors, and
