7. Isaac b. 1630 at Plymouth, Plymouth, MA; m(1) Elizabeth Allerton Nee Unknown; m(2) Elizabeth Willoughby.

      Isaac is thought to be the wealthiest of all the Pilgrims and had the prefix Mr. which in the earlier days was a used to indicate a superior family or respectability. He was one of the three given citizenship when they were at Leyden, Holland. He married first in the Staathuis (City Hall) on 4 November 1611 to Mary Norris. The oldest three children sailed on the Mayflower with their parents. Isaac was the fifth signer of the Mayflower Compact.
       While anchored in Plymouth Harbor, Mary Allerton died while delivering a still-born child. Isaac lived at Plymouth, Plymouth, MA until 1635 when he lived at Rocky Nook on the Jones River in Kingston. The house he later sold to "my well beloved sonne-in-law Thomas Cushman".
       Isaac went in March of 1621 went with Captain Standish to visit King Massasoit and were able to settle a treaty of peace that lasted 50 years. In April, Isaac became Assistant Governor and held the position until at least 1624. In September 1621, Isaac went by water to explore Boston harbor. They came to Nantasket at the entrance of the harbor and this area was called Point Allerton. In Hull an adjoining hill in Hull was known as Allerton Hill. In the spring of 1624, he received seven acres on the south side of the Brook to the Baywards.
     In 1626, he married Fear Brewster who later came over in the Anne in 1623. In 1626 Isaac was sen to England to obtain supplies. He returned the next spring of 1627. He had an agreement between the Merchants of London and Adventurers, Isaac was given full authority to make all arrangements and was sent back and returned once again in 1628. He did another trip in 1629-1630, where he settled the arrangement. There were issues of some trouble between Allerton and Bradford.
     Isaac was a merchant and was the first merchant of New England and the founder of the coasting trade and fish industry. He was the first to welcome Wintrhop and his Company. Winthrop writes: "About four in the morning we  were near our port, we shot off two pieces of ordinance and sent our skiff to Mr. Pierceabout an hour after Mr. Allerton came on board us in a shallop as he was sailing to Pemaquid," Isaac attempted to set up a rival trading station in Kennenec in 1632 and also one on the Penobscot, but by 1634 the French had broke them up. His wife, Fear died on 12 December 1634 at Plymouth, Plymouth, MA.
     In 1635, his liberal views brought about his removal from Marblehead and in May he transferred all his houses, buildings, and stages for curing fish there to his son-in-law Moses Maverick. In 1636 while returning from Penobscot he was shipwrecked. From 1636-1646, he resided for most of the time at New Amesterdam. There he was involved in coasting and tobacco trades and had a warehouse on the East River, near where the foot of Maiden Lane is. He became one of the Dutch settlers own Council in 1643.While there he made voyages to Virginia, the West Indies, and New England Colonies.
     Winthrop writes in 1643: "Three ministers which were sent to Virginia were wrecked on Long Island; Mr. Allerton of New Haven, being there took great paines and care of them and procured them a very good pinace and all things necessary." In a letter from John Hayned to Governor Winthrop: "There is late news by a vessel that came to the Dutch and from thence to New Haven by Mr. Allerton. The substances thus that there has been a great battle between the King and Parliament forces."
      In 1644, Allerton was shipwrecked at Scituate, Plymouth, MA on his way from New Haven to the Colonies. His third wife is mentioned and is assumed to be from Marblehead or Salem. About 1646 Isaac Allerton became a permanent resident of Newhaven and build a grand house on the creek with four porches on a home lot of two acres. The house stood on the north=west corner of Union and Fair Streets, and a table has been placed on the present building. He died at the beginning of 1659 and us buried in the old Burying Ground at New Haven.
      The Inventory of his estate was taken on 12 February 1659 and was presented to the Court on 5 April 1659. "Mrs. Allerton being asked if there was any Will by her husband answered there was, but she thought her son had it with him, who was now gone home." On 5 July of the same year, his son returned and presented the will. But the estate being badly insolvent the business was referred to the Court of Magistrates in October. At that Court the writing presented as the last Will and Testament of Isaac Allerton was informal and had no date. The witenesses were John Harriman and Edward Preston and was sealed and subscribed by Mr. Allerton deceased, whilst he had the use of his understanding and memory in competent degree.

"Isaac Allerton died in New Haven, Conn., between 1 February 1658-9, when he appeared in court as defendant in a suit brought to compel the payment of an old debt, and the twelfth of the same month, the date on which his inventory was taken. The will and inventory were recorded in the New Haven Probate Records.

The Robert Cushman Family- US 1621 to Current

** Connected to the William Harlow Family at William Harlow (1657-1711) **
** Underlined names are linked to their connecting pages**
Generation One:
Robert Cushman- b. between 1580-1585 at England; m. Unknown; d. January- February 1625 at England
Their Children:
1. Thomas b. February 1608 at England

      Robert Cusham was a nonconformist or Puritan. He was one of those at Leyden and he and Deacon John Carver, "two of the most active, reliable, and judicious memebers of their community werre selected to go to London in the year 1617 and open negotiations" to make an application to settle in new territory in North Amercia.. After issues with this agreement. Robert and William Bradford returned to England in the early part of 1619 to try again. On 8 May 1619 Robert wrote the following letter to Rev. Robinson and the Leyden Church:
To his Loving Friends.
I had thought long since to have writ unto you; but could not effect that which I aimed at, neither can yet set things as I wished. Uet, notwithstanding, I doubt not but Mr. Brewster hath written to Mr. Robinson; but I think myself bound also to do something, lest I be thought to neglect you.
     The main hindrance of our proceedings in the Virginia business is the dissensions and factions, as they term it, amongst the Council and Company of Virginia, which are such as that ever since we came up no business could by them be despatched. The occasion of this trouble amongst them is, that a while since Sir Thomas Smith, repining at his many offices and troubles, wished the Company of Virginia to ease him of his office in being treasurer and governor of the Company, he having sixty voices, Sir John Wolstenholme sixteen voices, and alderman Johnson twenty-four. But Sir Thomas Smith, when he saw some part of his honor lost, was very angry, and raised a faction to cavil and contend about the election, and sought to tax Sir Edwin with many things that moght both disgrace him and also put him by his office of governor. In which contentions they yet stick, and are not fit nor ready to intermeddle in any business; and what issue things will come to, I know not, nor are we yeat certain. It is most like Sir Edwin will carry it away; and if he do , things will go well in Virginia; if otherwise, they will go ill enough always. We hope in two or three Court days things will settle. Mean space I think to go down into Kent, and come up again about fourteen days or three weeks hence; except either by these aforesaid contentions, or by the ill tidings from Viriginia, we be wholly discouraged; of which tidings as followeth.
      Capt.Argall is come home this week. He upon notice of the intent of the Council, came away from Sir George Yeardley came there, and so there is no small dissension. But his tidings is ill, although his person be welcome. He saith Mr. Blackwell's ship came not there until March but going towards winter they had still northwest winds, which carried them to the southward beyond their course; and the master of the ship and some six of the mariners dying it, seemed they could not find the Bar, till after long seeking and beating about. Mr. Blackwell is dead, and Mr. Maggner, the captain. Yea, there are deaad, he saith, a hundred and thirty persons, one and other, in the ship. It is said there was in all a hundred and eighty persons in the ship, so as they were packed together like herrings. They had amongst them a flux, and also want of fresh water; so as it is here rather wondered that so many are alove, than that so many are dead. The merchants here say it was Mr. Blackwell's fault to pack so many in the ship; yea, and there was great murmuring and repining amongst them and upbraiding of Mr. Blackwell for his dealing and disposing of them when they saw how he disposed of them and how he insulted over them. Yea, the streets at Gravesend rang of their extreme quarreling, crying out on of another, "Thou hast brought me to this. I may thank thee for this." Heavy news it is, and I would be glad to hear now far it will discourage. I see none here discouraged much, but rather desire to learn to beware by other men's harms, and to amend that wherein they have failed; as we desire to serve one another in love, so take heed of being enthralled by other imperious persons, especially if they be discerned to have an eye to themselves. It doth often trouble me to think that in this business we are to learn and none to teach. But better so than to depend upon such teachers as Mr. Blackwell was. Such a stratagem he made for Mr. Johnson and his people at Emden; much was their subversion. But though he then cleanily yet honestly plucked his neck out of the collar, yet at last his foot is caught.
      Here are no letters come. The ship Captain Argall came in is yet in the west parts. All that we hear is but his report. It seemeth he came away secretly. The ship that Mr. Blackerll went in will be here shortly. It is as Mr. Robinson once said; he thought we should hear no good of them.
      Mr. Brewster is not well at this time. Whether he will go back to you or go into the north, I yet know not. For myself, I hope to see an end of this business ere I come, though I am sorry to be thus from you. If things gone roundly forward, I should have been with you within fourteen days. I pray God direct us, and give us that spirit which is fitting such a business.
      This having summarily pointed at things which Mr. Brewster, I think, hath more largely writ of to Mr. Robinson, I leave you to the Lord's protection.
Yours, in all readiness & C.
Robert Cushman
London, May the 8th 1619

     Robert continued to be involved in securing the transportation arrangements of the Pilgrims. Due to him being one of he chief managers was most likely the reason he returned to London with those who were in the Speedwell. Having been left behind and trying to secure passage for the remaining Pilgrims, Robert wrote and published in England an article on the subject of settling in America called Reasons and Considerations Touching the Lawfulness of Removing Out of England into the Parts of America.
     Robert Cushman and his son, Thomas, sailed on the Fortune in early July, leaving from London. On Friday 9 November 1621, the Fortune arrived odd Cape Cod. WIth the Colony down to half their population due to illness, Robert was planning to return to England to inform the ohers of the conditions in New Plymouth. On 12 December 1621, Robert gave a sermon that became the first sermon delivered in New England that was printed. It was delivered inthe Common House which stood on the south side of Leyden Street, just where the steep descent of the hill commences , on the ground covered by the residence of Capt. Samuel D. Holmes. On the 13th , he sailed back on the Fortune for England. He left behind his only son and his wife who is thought to have passed earlier is not known. The Fortune on its return was captured by the French and was waylaid in France until it finally returned to England on Monday, 17 February 1622.
      In July of 1622, Mr. Weston of the Virginia COmpany sent over 50-60 men at his own charge to plant for him, they were not Puritans. Robert wrote to the Colony about them as "They are no men or us, and I fear they will hardly deal so well with the savages as they should. I pray you, therefore signify to Squanto, that they are a distinct body from us, and we have nothing to do with them, nor must be blamed for their faults, much less can warrant their fidelity."
     In the spring of 1623, at the time of the first divsion of land. It was for those who settled in Plymouth, but for only one year. In 1624, the Governor gieves every person an acre of land permanently.  Robert Cochma was given on acre-- these lye on the south side of the Brook to the Baywards. In 1624 Mr, Winslow on the Anne brought a letter from Robert to Governor Bradford, dated at London, 24 January 1623-24.He again writes to Bradford, Allerton and Brewster from London on 18 December 1624.
      William Bradford wrote to im in return but the letter never reached Robert for he had passed away about January or February of 1625.

       Thomas came over on the Fortune in 1621 with his father. When Robert returned to England, Thomas was left in the care of Governor Bradford. He was admitted a freeman on 1 January 1633. He served as a juryman in 1635. In 1637, Thomas was granted the marsh before the house he liveth in which Mrs. Fuller doth not use and the little parcell at the wading place on the other side of the Jones River (now Kingston). He resided there the rest of his life.
     In 1645, he purchsed the Prence's farm at Jones River (now known as Rocky Nook in Kingston) by echanging land at Sowams for it for £75. The house was loacted in the area known as Elder's Spring. In 1649 Thomas was appointed to the office of Ruling Elder of the Church at Plymouth. He held this position for over forty-three years.
At his death, Thomas was buried at the southerly brow of Burying Hill. His grave stone was erected by the Plymouth Churchm twenty-four years after his death. The inscriptions reads " Here lyeth buried Ye Body of that precious servant of God; Thomas Cushman who after he had served his generation according to the will of God particularly the Church of Plymouth for many years in the Office of a Ruling Elder, fell asleep in Jeasus, Decmr Ye 10 1691 and in Ye 84 year of his age."

      Richard Warren was not of the Leyden Company but he did join the Pilgrims from London. He was a merchant.  He came over on the Mayflower in 1620.He was a signer of the Mayflower Compact. His wife and daughters came later on the Anne in 1623. His wife was rated in the Plymouth tax in 1632-3 and was one of the first purchasers of Dartmouth.
     In the land division of 1623, Richard was given  land in the north side of town with William WHite, Edward Winslow, John Goodman, John Crackston, John Alden, Marie Chilton, Captain Myles Standish, Francis Eaton, Henry Sampson and Humilities Coopers; and under those who came in the Ann, his lands were on the other side of towne towards Eele River where he made his home. This are later became known as Wellingsley or Hobshole. He also owned land along Warren's Cove.
Richard Warren and the "First Encounter"
This story appears both in Mourt's Relation, published in London in 1622, and (in a condensed version) in William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation.
"Wednesday, the sixth of December [1620]. It was resolved our discoverers should set forth ... So ten of our men were appointed who were of themselves willing to undertake it, to wit, Captain Standish, Master Carver, William Bradford, Edward Winslow, John Tilley, Edward Tilley, John Howland, and three of London, Richard Warren, Stephen Hopkins, and Edward Doten, and two of our seamen, John Alderton, and Thomas English. Of the ship's company there went two of the master's mates, Master Clarke and Master Coppin, the master gunner, and three sailors ...

Plymouth Colony Records, Deeds, &c Vol. I 1627-1651 is the oldest record book of the Plymouth settlement. It begins with the 1623 Division of Land, recorded in the handwriting of Governor William Bradford. The lands of Richard Warren were among those designated as "their grounds which came first over in the May Floure, according as thier lotes were case" and are described in this way "these lye one the north side of the towne next adjoyning to their gardens which came in the Fortune."

Richard Warren & the 1627 Division of Cattle
Plymouth Colony Records, Deeds, &c, Vol. I 1627-1651 also tells of the 1627 Division of Cattle:
"At a publique court held the 22th of May it was concluded by the whole Companie, that the cattell wch were the Companies, to wit, the Cowes & the Goates should be equally devided to all the psonts of the same company ... & so the lotts fell as followeth, thirteene psonts being pportioned to one lot ... "

"The ninth lot fell to Richard Warren & his companie Joyned with (2) him his wife Elizabeth Warren (3) Nathaniell Warren (4) Joseph Warren (5) Mary Warren (6) Anna Warren (7) Sara Warren (8) Elizabeth Warren (9) Abigall Warren (10) John Billington (11) George Sowle (12) Mary Sowle (13) Zakariah Sowle. To this lott fell one of the 4 black heyfers that came in the Jacob caled the smooth horned Heyfer and two shee goats."

Richard Warren : a 1626 Purchaser
In 1621, King James I authorized the Council for New England to plant and govern land in this area. This Council granted the Peirce Patent, confirming the Pilgrims' settlement and governance of Plymouth. Peirce and his associates, the merchant adventurers, were allotted 100 acres for each settler the Company transported. The Pilgrims had a contract with the Company stating all land and profits would accrue to the Company for 7 years at which time the assets would be divided among the shareholders. Most of the Pilgrims held some stock. The Pilgrims negotiated a more favorable contract with the Company in 1626. In 1627, 53 Plymouth freemen, known as "The Purchasers," agreed to buy out the Company over a period of years. In turn, 12 "Undertakers" (8 from Plymouth and 4 from London) agreed to pay off Plymouth's debts in return for trade benefits.
The list we have of the 1626 Purchasers comes from the Plymouth Colony Records (Vol. 2, p. 177). Because of some discrepancies in the names, it is usually assumed that the list was compiled several years after the actual agreement was negotiated. The Plymouth Colony Records do not list Richard Warren; instead "Elizabeth Warren, widdow" is listed even though Richard Warren was still living in 1626/1627.

Richard Warren : his death
"And seeing it hath pleased Him to give me [William Bradford] to see thirty years completed since these beginnings, and that the great works of His providence are to be observed, I have thought it not unworthy my pains to take a view of the decreasings and increasings of these persons and such changes as hath passed over them and theirs in this thirty years ...

"Mr. Richard Warren lived some four or five years and had his wife come over to him, by whom he had two sons before [he] died, and one of them is married and hath two children. So his increase is four. But he had five daughters more came over with his wife, who are all married and living, and have many children."
William Bradford, Of Plymouth Plantation 1620-1647, ed.
Samuel Eliot Morison (New York : Knopf, 1991), p. 443-7.

"1628. "This year died Mr. Richard Warren, who hath been mentioned before in this book, and was an useful instrument ; and during his life bore a deep share in the difficulties and troubles of the first settlement of the plantation of New Plimouth."
Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial  (Boston : John Usher, 1669)

    Robert Bartlett arrived on the Anne in 1623, It is assumed that since he was not one of the 1626 Purchasers that he arrived as a servant and was still a servant in 1626. It is found and suggested in research that he is the same Robert Bartlett baptized in Puddletown, Dorset, England on 27 May 1603.
     In 1 July 1633 he was assigned mowing rights on the same land they had used the previous year. On 28 May 1635, Thomas Little gave Robert a parcel of land beyond the Eel River to build a house on. On 1 December 1635 Richard Stinnings apprenticed himself to Robert for nine years, Richard was later hanged for murdering an Indian. On 4 August 1638 John Barned sold to him the remaining three years of Thomas Shrive's indenture. He served as grandjuror and highway surveyor. His occupation was wine cooper.
      On 7 October 1652 Robert petitioned the court because "sondry speeched have passed from som who pretend themselves to bee the sole and right heires unto the land on which the saif Robert Bartlett now liveth, at the Ellriv, in the townshipp of Plymouth, which hee, the said Robert, had bestowed on him by his mother in lawm  Mis Elizabeth Warren, in marriage with her daughter; by which said speeched and passages the said Robert had ben dishartened in his proceedings either in building, fencing, etc," and the courts confirmed his tights to the lands (PCR 3:142)
     On 1 May 1660 Robert was convicted by the Court of Assistants for speaking contemptuously  about the ordinance of singing psalms, and he said he hope it would be a warning to him, and he promised to acknowledge his fault to those he had earlier spoken to (PCR 3:186)
     On moving to Nausset in 1649, Richard Church sold his real estate at Eel River to Robert Bartlett for £25 (PCR 12:16)
     Robert Bartlett made a  will on 19 September 1676, sworn 29 October 1676, leaving his estate to his wife to dispose of to their children (MD3:114-15).
