Edward was Elder of the First Church of Boston; Freeman, 1637; married (2) Elizabeth Dildee or Dilloe (1607-88) - both are buried in King's Chapel burying ground, Boston; was a merchant. Baptised at Staverton, England 10 Sept 1609, Parish of St. John the Baptist, and was eighth child of Robert. His brother was Lord Chief Justice of England. Edward is mentioned in his father's will as the third son and is to receive 100 pounds when age 21. He emigrated to Boston, Mass. about 1630.Carl Flegal (cflegal@msn.com) offered via email 18 Jun 1999 re: ancestry of Edward back to Charlemagne:The best reference that I have is Gary Boyd Roberts, "The New England Ancestry of H.R.H. The Princess of Wales," NEHGR, 136, 85-103, 1982: "The second royal descent, compiled by H. J. Young from F. N. MacNamara, Memorials of the Danvers Family (of Dauntsey & Culworth) (London, 1895), William F. Carter, The Quatremains of Oxfordshire (Oxford, 1936), volume 8 of the Moriarty manuscript collection and a few other sources, is from Hugh Capet, King of France, d. 996, through counts of Hainault, Roucy, Montdidier, and Clermont, and the Clare, Wake, Duston, Grey of Rotherfield, Breton, Quatremain, Bruley, Danvers, Langston and Giffard families." "These kinships are explored in "The Mowbray Connection," 7: 162-166, 174, 175."Weiss gives the ancestry of Adelaide de Clermont.James A. Rasmussen, "Edward Raynesford of Boston," NEHGR, 225-315, July, 1985 gives the ancestry through Alice Danvers, her father Sir William Danvers of Colthrop, her grandmother Joan Bruley. "Further particulars on Alice's ancestry may be found in Samuel Barfield, Thatchem, Berks, and its Manors (Oxford, 1901), edited by James Parker."Details of these ancestries are found on the internet:One ancestry of Joan Bruley is given at (www.my-ged.com/db/page/scokin/04297). This fits with my reference. I have not entered this ancestry into my computer and can not send you a GEDCOMmyself. I'll be looking for it myself.Paul Bailey McBride carries the ancestry of Thomas de Grey (-1295) on back with many references, (www.tiac.net/users/pmcbride/rfc/gw30.htm#18518)Apparently many New England immigrants descend from Joan Bruley including Ann Mowbray Hutchinson. Joan Bruley's ancestry also appears to be correct at {ww.gendex.com/users/Enf_Bry/Enf_Bry/i372.htm#159565).I have not checked any of the cited references yet.

Author: Tracy Ashley Crocker
Publication: (1981) Gateway Press, Baltimore, C1087, Vol. I.

James Percival, immigrant, begins his Will made January 19, 1691 as follows:

"I James Parsivall of Suckenesset," this being the Indian name of that part of the southwestern Cape Cod now known as Falmouth. This town was incorporated June 4, 1686, but the name Falmouth was first used on March 16, 1693.

WILL: made Jan 19 1691/2, leaves to wife Mary, sons John and James, daughter Elizabeth, son in law Nathan Bassett; daughter in law Sarah Lewes; overseers to be friends Stephen Skeffe and William Bassett of Sandwich; inventory 22 Mar 1691/2; recorded 23 Mar 1691/2

His permanent home was in Falmouth where he owned much land besides his homestead. He had resided for a while in Virginia and Sandwich, MA but there is no record that he ever owned land in either place or that he was recorded as an inhabitant of Sandwich in any of the records naming the inhabitants of Sandwich.

The first references to James Percival are in the Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. 5, pgs 53 and 68.

"Court at Plymouth, March 8, 1670: James Purseval, for his contempt of authority in not departing the colony according to order, and for his making an escape from one with whom he was sent, in reference to his going to Virginnia to clear himself of suspicion of having a hand in running away with a boat, etc., he was required to pay a fine of five pounds."

July 5, 1671 pg 68, "Whereas 15 shillings in money was taken away from a servant of James Pursvall of Sandwich, who run away, the court orders 8 shillings to be paid to the constable for bringing him to Plymouth and the remainder to be paid to said Pursvall."

This shows that James Percival, the New England Pioneer, was living in Virginia in 1670.

James Pursval served on the jury at Plymouth court in 1675. He was a constable in Sandwich in 1677. He witnessed the Will of Thomas Dexter of Sandwich in 1687. It is probable that he was born in England and as his wife Mary Rainsford was baptized in Boston in 1632, it quite probable that he was born at a date not far from that.

He remained in Sandwich and in 1677 married Mary, widow of William Bassett, daughter of Edward Rainsford of Boston. He was permitted to take land in the eastern part of Falmouth about 1685. In 1685 he would have been 70 and hardly a desireable pioneer settler.

It appears that he did not own land in Virginia and from the fact that he acquired much land in Falmouth, MA, he probably would have been a land owner in Virginia if he had lived there more than two years. And as his name is not recorded among those early Virginian immigrants, it seems reasonable to conclude that he probably arrived in Virginia between 1668 and 1670, at which latter date he arrived in Sandwich from Virginia.

There is a tradition that he was descended from Lord and Lady Percival, but this is indefinite. There is little doubt, however, but that James Percival was descended through lines not recorded or not yet discovered from Richard Perceval, the Crusader, who died soon after 1194 and was buried in Weston, Somerset, England.

Abigail Robinson, 5th child and 2nd dau. of John Robinson (Isaac,1 Rev. John,A) and Elizabeth Weeks (William,1), b. May 16, 1676 in Falmouth, Mass. (Until 1681 Falmouth was attached to adjoining Barnstable for record purposes as there had been insufficient population in Falmouth to justify separate records.) Although Abigail's date of birth is stated as Mar. 20, 1674/75 in the Barnstable Town Records, the writer believes Abigail's birthdate is reversed with that of her sister Fear (see their father's memorial for further explanation.)

On Feb. 18, 1695/6 of record at Sandwich, Mass. (by Shearjasub Bourne, Esq.), Abigail m. James Percival, Jr., s. of Lieut. James Percival and Mary Rainsford, b. of record Jan. 18, 1671/2 at Sandwich.

Following the b. record of son Ebenezer and dau. Mary at Falmouth, on Apr. 4, 1703 Abigail "wife of James Parsival" was admitted a member of the Barnstable Cong. Church followed by the baptism of dau. Mary on Apr. 4, 1703 and son James on July 9, 1704. At the time there was no sustained church at Falmouth for the family to belong to.

According to Homer W. Brainard's Henry Rowley and some of His Descendants (NYGBR, 37(1906):64), Matthew,3 Rowley (Moses,2 Henry,1) relocated with his parents from Falmouth, Mass. to East Haddam, Conn., where in 1705 Matthew sold his land in East Haddam to James Percival, of Falmouth, Mass. Presumably there is a corresponding East Haddam deed confirming said claim.

Regardless, this Percival family soon relocated to East Haddam, Conn. On Jan. 5, 1705/6 Stephen Skiffe, Esq. and William Bassett were appointed Commissioners by the Barnstable Probate Court concerning the insolvent estate of Judah Butler of Falmouth. On Feb. 20, 1706/7 the commissioners submitted a long list of creditors, including the claim "Due to James Parsival 20 sheep to be pickt [picked], witness Isa'l Robinson and Samll Lewes, 4-10-00." The name "Isa'l Robinson" had been errantly transcribed by the NEHGS as being "Israel" when it was a mis-abbreviation for "Isaac" Robinson, James Percival's brother-in-law and six year older brother of Abigail Robinson. The style of the claim infers that James Percival was not available to personally submit his claim. For, on Oct. 17, 1706 the birth of John, s. of James and Abigail (Robinson) Percival, was recorded at East Haddam, Conn. followed on Feb. 2, 1706/7 by the admission of "Abigail Passivel ye wife of Jeams Passivel [admitted to the East Haddam Cong. Ch.] from ye Church of Christ at Barnstable, Rev. Mr. Jonathan Russel, Pastor." On the latter same date was baptised recently born son John.

When Abigail (Robinson) Percival died is not of specific record. Abigail's much older 1st cousin, Ens. Thomas Robinson, removed to East Haddam prior to 1690 and d. testate at Haddam Oct. 20, 1725. The writer believes he is likely buried at East Haddam's Old Cove Burying Ground with only an initialed "T.R." fieldstone. The last known child of Abigail (Robinson) Percival, son Timothy, was b. at East Haddam in 1712 when Abigail was only 36 years of age. There are two other initialled fieldstones at Old Cove Burying Ground inventoried one after the other: "E.P." and "A.P." both dated 1714. The fieldstones are likely that of Abigail and son Ebenezer, as Ebenezer has no record beyond his known birth at Falmouth in 1699.

Abigail Robinson and James Percival had the following six known children, only five of whom are of birth and/or baptism record:

i. Joseph Percival, b. circa 1697 or 1698 prob. at Falmouth, Mass. but no birth or baptism record has been found. He is called his father's eldest son and received property in his father's August 1728 will. However, no other record of him has been found.

ii. Ebenezer Percival, b. of record June 18, 1699 at Falmouth, Mass. His baptism is not of record and he is not included in his father's August 1728 will and is likely the "E. P." who was buried in 1714 with only a fieldstone at East Haddam's Old Cove Burying Ground.

The will of James Percival dated August 1, 1728 at East Haddam named his two sons James and John Percival, daughter Mary Percival and wife Mary Percival and made bequests to them. The bond on his estate dated December 3, 1728 was posted by son John Percival and Daniel Brainerd. The inventory was taken on November 29th and on the top part showed that he "deceased 4th November 1728". The fieldstone shows "I P 1728" with a dash across the "I" which is the old English version for "J". It looks like and "E" but it's not. The Percivals lived in the 2nd Society or Machamoodus section of East Haddam, CT where they lived for generations. They were not of the 1st Society.

James Percival married Abigail Robinson of Falmouth, Barnstable County, Mass. on 27 February 1695-6 [town record]. They had sons James born ca. 1697 and Ebenezer born 18 June 1699 and daughter Mary born 16 September 1701. The Percival family removed to East Haddam, Middlesex County, Conn. by 1706 when their son John Percival was born on 17 October 1706 [town record]. Another son Timothy was born on 2 October 1712 [town record]. Abigail, wife of James Percival, was admitted to the Church of Christ at East Haddam on 2 February 1706-7 by letter from the Church of Christ at Barnstable. James Percival was baptized and admitted full communion on 1 May 1709.

Ebenezer Percival, son of James and Abigail, died before 1728 as he was not named in his father's will. There is a fieldstone marked "E P 1713/14" [plot #20] and next to it is a field stone marked "A P 1713" [plot #22] which is no doubt that of Abigail [Robinson] Percival. In plot #26 is where the fieldstone marked "I P 1728" for James Percival is located [per 1958 map of the burying yard]. The other son Timothy Percival, born 2 October 1712 in East Haddam, also was not named in his father's will and was most likely dead by 1714 at the same time as his mother when a terrible epidemic swept through the town that winter of 1713-14.

Fieldstone marked "V Y [ ] 25 1730" shown on 1934 list written by Mr. G. C. Johnson was misread and incorrectly copied. The initials should have read "T K". The exact location of this stone is the northern part of this yard. Part of it was broken off thus showing only the day and year.

Thomas Knowlton wrote his will on September 15th, 1730 where he mentioned his wife Susannah, son Thomas Knowlton and daughters Susannah Olcott, Lucy Knowlton, Hannah Knowlton and Mercy Bates. The inventory document on his estate shows that he "departed this life September 25th, 1730".

Thomas Knowlton married first to Mercy { ? ] c. 1693 at Ipswich, MA who died on 23 August 1694 after giving birth to daughter Mercy on 7 August 1694 [town records]. He remarried c. 1697 to Susannah [ ? ] and were in East Haddam CT when their daughter Susannah was born in 1698 and son Thomas Jr. in 1699. The daughter Mercy Knowlton married John Bates 3rd on 3 November 1714 [town record]; however, the record shows her name as Mary.
