Thank you for your time and effort. Randall Evins and family from Randall Evins --- Email: rde1022 (at) yahoo.com
Randall - I did check into my Boynton history book without luck for her husband (it would take a very long time
to check for all "Mary" entries). Also, this book is only a listing of the descendents of John and William Boynton who
arrived in America around 1638. I don't have records for any others ... Regards - Doug
[Boynton] Date Tue, 17 Sep 2002
I have just recieved a beautiful mug from the Historical Research
Center (shipping dept.) and am satisfied with it. However it is not our
personal family coat of arms.This shield seems to have a German flavor to
it with the wolf heads. I have ours, as researched many years ago by my
Irish grandmother. My question to you is as follows could you (or direct
me to the correct place) make a small mug(s) with our personal family coat
of arms on it? It is beautiful with a red upside down v shaped red banner
with 3 gold scallops on it as we were sea faring people. An elaborate type
of flowing scarf like material in shades of silver,laced with gold around
the shield topped off with a beautiful knights silver and gold helment with
a lovely cupid standing atop the helment, holding his bow and arrows in the
air. The scarf was draped around him. This shield was carried to battle in the crusades in front of our clan.
Cupid represented the kindness and love that we had but the bow held high
was not to be ignored. The knights wore around their necks a necklace of
golden sea scallops. You can see why I would like a mug or two with the above shield on it. I will furnish the proper duplicate picture of it. Please advise ASAP either way.
Thank you; James Dew Tully/pct (at) sccoast.net
James: I am not familiar with a specific vendor of custom mugs. However, if you have the art work then any vendor that makes promotional pieces for
businesses or trade shows could do it. The back of Business Week might have advertisements for such a vendor. I find many "historical research"
companies simply get a coat of arms for each name and use it regardless of the specific family history. Since often the coat of arms has variations for each branch, even
the very responsible ones may have a hard time getting the exact one associated with a particular branch of the family tree. Regards - Doug

She's not in the Rockport records. She married Leon Truesdell in Boston 12-6-1893. Any suggestions as to her family? from David Kew --- Email: David_Kew (at) alum.mit.edu Web Page: members.bellatlantic.net/~vze2c48q
David - I did check into my Boynton history book without luck for her name and her husband. Unfortunately the
book ends in 1896 so her marriage would not likely be listed in any case. This book is only a listing of the descendents
of John and William Boynton who arrived in America around 1638. I don't have records for any others ... Regards -

[Boynton] Oct 25, 2002 "glad to find this on web, will come back with comments later" (found site through: Family
Search) --- I am on the quest of verifying the link of my great grandparents who were James Henry Boynton (1836 - after
1900) and his wife, Harriet V. Watrous whho was the child of Henry Reed Watrous (1799) and Mary Huntington Chadwick. Harriet
died when my grandmother, Grace Stanley Boynton (born 1860) was an older teen. She had an older sister Maude and a younger
brother Harry. That family lived in Brooklyn Heights, James Henry was a manufacturer of high end (and new-fangled) ready
to wear suits. His store was on Broadway and he is said to have been in the first wave of pedestrians to walk the Brooklyn
Bridge to work. But I can't verify his place of birth, marriage or death. Nor Harriet's death place and date -- variously
1888 -- but that conflicts with the memory of my sister that Grace was younger -- about 19 not 25 -- and was therefore sent
off to Wells College. Perhaps you know more. Willing to share what I've found. Debby from Deborah Shaw Link, MD ---

[Boynton] Nov 11, 2002 "Search" (found site through: Google) --- I have an old photographic copy of the 1773 English commission (issued by Thomas Hutchinson, Esq., Captain Gen. and Vice -Admiral of Province of Mass. Bay) of John Boynton. Comm'd. as a Lieutenant in Wimbledon(?), Abel Wilder was Captain. Signed by Jm. Cotton D. Sevoy(?) and Governor Murray.
Family lore says he hated the English and promptly defected to the Americans and was comm'd. into the Revolutionary Army as a captain. Whether he was issued this comm. in England or America, I'm not sure. A side note is that through John, I am supposedly directly descended from Benjamin Franklin's sister, Mary. There is a family tree in existance and my aunt is searching. My question is if John is related to the Mass. Boynton's and possibly the Franklins. I'd appreciate any help you can give. I will also be happy to email you a copy of the comm. I have. Many thanks from a fellow Boynton! Cinda from Cinda Ann Boynton Rickel --- Email: cinda.david (at) verizon.net
[Boynton] Nov 12, 2002 "Thomas & Margaret Boynton" --- Hello,
I am M. DeLano Warner. I am a researcher for American Pedigree Resources and have published 7 books for clients who commissioned my services. I have been hired to research the Boynton Line and I have enjoyed your web site. I do have a few notes that you may wish to research. I look forward to corresponding should you wish.
Re: Thomas Boynton and Margaret his wife;
The Will of Margaret’s husband Thomas [ Will July 29, 1408, proved York, September 6th, 1408/9 ] states her surname as: Conyers. This is from the notes on the Boynton pedigree found in the Visitation of the North. Margaret is stated to have had a brother John Conyers. A careful review of the Conyers pedigrees from the Visitations of Yorkshire and others along with parish records we found that Margaret Conyers married John Normanvile and had no issue. After, this marriage Margaret married Sir. Thomas Boynton. Margaret is the daughter of Christopher Conyers and his wife Anne Markenfield daughter of John Markenfield.

Boyington). Sgt Andrew died in Angelica, New York in 1835 at the ripe old age of 96. My line from Sgt Andrew is David,

[Boynton] Jan 14, 2003 "Acklam Hall Grammar School - coat of arms" --- As a former pupil of AHGS I was wondering if
you could tell me the significance of the 'dog badge' worn on the breast pocket of the school blazer. This was for pupils
in years 1 - 4, in fifth year it became the coat of arms. Regards, George Morland ---
email: george.morland (at) ntlworld.com>
I'm sorry I have no information about it. Perhaps they regarded the younger class members as "underdogs".
Can anyone else help? Regards - -Doug
------------- May 25, 2003 "Acklam Hall Grammar School - coat of arms update" --- Sir, You refer to the Acklam Hall Coat
of Arms. Two points: The Hustler Family that owned the manor originally had a coat of arms that was adopted by the school
300 hundred years later. It appears in various places in the ceiling plasterwork. I am not a Heraldist but the shield was
'topped' by a dog called a Talbot. This was an old country hunting hound, much favoured by the nobility. The shield itself
contained two birds plus a band with three fleurs de lys. The motif was "Aut Nunquam Tente Aut Perfice" - translated
variously as 'nothing less than thoroughness' or ' work or get out'!!! The dog (Talbot) on the blazer badge is simple - it
was much harder to embroider the full coat of arms. In the old days, all blazers had green, black and silver braid around
the edges also.
How do I know ? I was there - 1947 plus - and detested the place. Fortunately, I was able to erase its past from
my 'hard disc', re-incarnate and move on.

[Boynton] Jan 21, 2003 "Cynthia Byington" Hi. I am trying to learn more about my supposed ancestor Lady Cynthia
Byington , who was closely associated with the Goss family of New England. First of all, is Byington a form of Boynton?
Do you have this Cynthia in your records? She was probably born ca. 1780. Thanks. John C. May email:
CajunKaiser (at) comcast.net
I have no record of her - but my records only cover the family members in the USA. Byington is indeed a form
of Boynton - my understanding was that the change was made in the USA - I'm not sure about the history in the UK.

[Boynton] Feb 10 2003 "William BOYNTON - Yorkshire" I am a direct descendant of William BOYNTON of Yorkshire through
Martha BOYTON m. Timothy TILTON in NH. Do you have additional details regarding the "expedition" you mention in the
'Boynton Genealogy 34 Generations'. Two or three years ago, I believe I went to your site and through it found a reference
to the fact that William, together with several other wealthy individuals from Ipswich, Yorkshire, sailed to the Colonies
from Hull, Yorkshire, on the Mary and Joseph. I have searched everywhere and found no reference to this ship. I now note
that another ship, the John and Mary, also referred to as the Mary and John, sailed several times to the Colonies from
London at exactly the same period. (Ref. LADD genealogy). TIA for any information you can give me. from - MAGDALENA
email: - magdalena (at) oninet.pt
I do not have ready access to the ship name to confirm or correct the information. My 1897 book only mentions
(page XII) that
"These two brothers [John and William Boynton], in the year 1637, joined the expedition which was
fitted out under the auspices of Sir Matthew Boynton and others who had made extensive preparations for a settlement in
New England. [Sir Matthew made preparations for accompanying them, but the prospects of the Puritans becoming brighter
in England, he remained at home, and was of great service to the cause espoused by Oliver Cromwell - page X.] Sir Matthew
remained behind and joined the fortunes of Oliver Cromwell. The remainder of the party embarked at Hull, in the autumn of
1638, and arrived at Boston, in New England, the same year. Many of the families were wealthy, and with the means brought
with them purchased a tract of land situated between the towns of Newbury and Ipswich, which they took possession of in
April 1639, and called it Rowley in honor of their minister, Mr. Ezekiel Rogers, who had been sometime preacher at the
village of that name in Yorkshire."
Perhaps another reader will be able to help with the ship name. - Regards - Doug

[Boynton] July 20, 2003 "ANSWER From: GFBoynton (at) aol.com" Hi Doug. The question posed by Magdalena regarding the
ship William and John came over on was the "John of London". This from Rootsweb Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild. Sailed
from Hull, England to Salem, MA Summer 1638. It lists quite a few names including William, his wife Elizabeth and
John. Hope this helps. George

[Boynton] Feb 25 2003 "Boynton Offshoot?" My line is the Nottingham, UK, line of at least 4 that migrated from
Snape and Well Yorkshire about 1800. Upon moving to Nottingham, Leeds, Grimsby and Hull in the UK they changed their name to
Boyington. The root family we can each trace back to is Marmaduke Boynton, woolcomber, (b around 1751, Yorkshire,
christened at Well, married Dorothy Wass at Catterick 1781, buried St Helens, Ainderby Steeple. Three children, George
b 1781, Richard, b 1786, d Nottingham 1845, Mary, b 1791. Mary had an illegitimate child John who carried the Boynton
name to descendents in Leeds, and Hull. Several villages close to Well have records of Tuck family. Parish registers in
the IGI also indicate a Marmaduke Tuck from the 1650's. About 1800, the group above changed names to variants such as
Boyenton, Bointon, Boyinton and Boyington, this latter being the spelling of the last 4 generations. Any info I may have
useful to you or vice versa, I would be happy to
share. /gt -- George Tuck -- Address and phone number on request to: gtuck (at) canada.com
A number of variant spellings are also listed in the 1897 Boynton book for the descendants in the USA from the
Boynton brothers who came here in 1638. I see: Bointon, Boington, Boyenton, Boyington, Byinton, and Byington. Many postings
at this web site reflect these alternative spellings and include instances of people who have identified the ancestor who
changed the spelliong. - Doug
[Boynton] Feb 26 2003 "Boynton Heraldry" Hello - Your coat of arms clearly indicates a close link with the family of
Walter 'The Fleming' who held the Barony of od Odell in Bedfordshire. The arms shown by that family are Or, 3 crescents
gules [gold shield with 3 red crescents (moons?)] This indicated that he was the second son of Lambert de Lens [ his C of
A was Or a crescent gu.He was killed 1054when he was married to a sister of William The Conqueror. His father was Count
Eustace of Boulogne who fought in 1066 at The Battle of Hastings. Either Bartholmew was part of the same family or what
is more likely his wife was and that would explain their son being Walter. Torchill de Bovington could be the same as the
Turgis [Thorgils] a Doomsday tenant of Nigel de Albini at Priestly, Bedfordshire. Thomas de Boynton used the same C of A in
the Heraldic Roll of King Richard II. -- Caraline Bingley email: Fiojot (at) btopenworld.com

[Boynton] March 15, 2003 "Ebenezer & Naomi Boyington" I have a copy of a newspaper article describing an
indictment of Abraham Taylor for a positively grusome attack on Ebenezer and Naomi Boyington that took place in the late
1700's, apparently in Hartland, Vermont. As a member of the Hartland Historical Society I have been researching this
brother and sister to see how their lives progressed (they were 8 and 10 years old at the time of the attack). I have
found that Naoimi married and had at least one child but have found nothing for Ebenezer yet. I'd be glad to share this
article with anyone working on this line but must warn you that it is upsetting to read and not suitable for posting on
this site, in my opinion. If anyone has any information regarding this attack I am interested, particularly in finding out
how the perpetrator was punished, etc. Naomi Boyington must have been a remarkable girl to survive and go on to marry and
have a family. You have a very helpful website. Bev Lasure --- email: vtrealtr (at) sover.net

30, 1713 and married Mary, daughter of William Hancock, October 16, 1739. He was called John the Blacksmith.
Residence on Water Street in Haverhill until March 28, 1760 when he sold out and removed to Buxton, Maine (then
Narraganset No. 1.) It is said he died in the Army in 1777, in a barn used as a barrack by the soldiers. Elisha Andrews

[Boynton] March 17, 2003 "Frank Boynton.... found" Hi Doug, Since I posted the query I finally found who Frank
Boynton's father was! I took a couple of days searching old vital records of Mansfield, CT, Coventry, CT and Killingly,
CT. I found that his father was Austin Boynton and his mother was Matilda Clark. I found his birth record in the Coventry
vital birth records Vol 3 page 83. I was able to follow it back 3 more generations in the Coventry records. Austin's
father was Thaddus Boynton. Thaddus's father was Oliver Boynton, then finally Moses Boynton! Thanks for posting the
query. Gary Nilson Wallingford, CT --- email: gary.nilson (at) snet.net
Gary - Thank you very much for the update. Sounds like you did some good digging. It is wonderful when the
answers become available to everyone. More information! With the details that you provided, I have also found Frank
Boynton in an addendum section to the Boynton family book on page 248. Austin Boynton first married Nancy Burt Hunt, May
30, 1854; married 2nd Amilda Lucretia Clark, July 1, 1872. Children and spouses are listed. The history of Austin's
ancestors is on page 27. Austin's father was Thaddus Boynton. Thaddus's father was Oliver Boynton, Oliver's father was
Joshua Boynton. Joshua's father was another Joshua Boynton. Joshua's father was William Boynton. William was one of the
two Boynton brothers who came to America in 1638. From there the family history goes back another 22 generations as
documented at my website: www.quine.org/boynton.html We share the two Joshua Boynton's as ancestors and obviously
everyone before them. This gets you about another 26 generations back. Best regards - Doug

[Boynton] April 27 2003 "wife of Ebenezer Boynton (Sergt. Caleb, John) born May 17 1688?" Doug, I'm looking for the
correct wife of Ebenezer Boynton (Sergt. Caleb, John) born May 17 1688 in Rowley. According to the Early Settlers of
Rowley, MA, it was Sarah Wheeler. Recently I've seen reported he married Sarah Grout. Which is correct? Or is Grout a
second marriage? Thanks, Grace Bliss Smith --- email gracemi (at) comcast.net
Dear Grace, My Boynton book from 1896 supports the Grout theory.
Page 57 shows Ebenezer Boynton (son of Caleb, son of John) born May 17, 1688 who married first Sarah Grout (daughter of
Caleb Grout). They resided in Byfield Parish, Rowley until 1726 when they moved to Weston Mass where she died Feb 1727 (or
1728). He married 2nd, Abigail Chadwick in Weston on June 7, 1728. He was a blacksmith and died in Milford on
Sept 16, 1761. His 7 children (all with Sarah it appears) were Jeremiah (Dec 27, 1711), Hannah (Aug 4, 1713), Jerusha
(July 6, 1715), a son (possibly Joshua) baptised July 17, 1720, Mercy (June 15, 1722), Caleb (May 18, 1724), and Sarah
(June 26, 1726).
I also checked for Wheeler references and could find no Sarah Wheeler in the book at all (there were 11 Wheeler references
list but none to Sarah, none in the time period of interest. [2 of the index entries I could not find the reference in the
text but they were in the 1800's in any case]
Hope this helps - Doug Thanks, Doug. The Rowley Settlers book shows Ebenezer married to Sarah Wheeler, daughter of Nathan Wheeler and
Elizabeth Safford. However, I did some checking and found some other references citing the marriage to Sarah Grout. - Grace

My father is Richard Boynton originally from Rhode island. His father was Oliver Griswold Boynton. He has a pretty big family
tree thing hanging on the wall in his house which has the same family crest ( Arms De Boynton) . This family tree, I think
goes back to the 15 or 16 century, ever heard of my parents or grandparents? --- tomboynton (at) cox.net
Thomas - I've not heard of your family members (I grew up in Massachusetts and my mother - Marjorie
Boynton - grew up in Connecticut) but my Boynton family book carries the family back to the 11th century. If you can find
the name of your great-grandfather (I need someone born before about 1890) and his wife's maiden name then I may be able to
get you the link all the way back (the index is very hard to use if the first name of the Boynton relative is a common name).
Best regards - Doug
I was born in Meriden Ct. and have lived here all my life. My uncle ( Daniel Boynton), my fathers twin brother, lives in
Massachusetts, and has lived there all his life. I think he lived in Lincoln for a while. My great grandfather was Henry
Walcott Boynton who was a fairly famous author. He was born April 22 1869 in Guilford Ct. His wife was Lucia Griswold Merrill
who died Sept 1899, and he remarried to May Whittemore who died in 1961. My Grandfather's mother was Lucia Merrill Boynton.
My great-grandfather, Henry Walcott Boynton's father, was George Mills Boynton who was born in Brooklyn N.Y. in 1837. That
family tree, my father has, starts with Bartholemew de Boynton, Living in Yorkshire England A.D. 1067. I do see a Douglas
Boynton born in 1928 who is a relative, but probably distant to you. HTH .... Tom.
Thomas - It sounds like you are already linked into the long family history back to Bartholemew de Boynton,
Living in Yorkshire England A.D. 1067. It is a small world. My grandfather, Augustus Swain Boynton lived in Meriden at
291 Liberty Street from 1919 to 1978. He was the Director of State Trade School, Meriden CT (from startup 1919-1930) and
then became the Connecticut) State Director of Vocational Education (1930-1945). My mother lived in Meriden until she went
to college. Your great grandfather Rev. George Mills Boynton is described on page 117 of my Boynton family history book.
He went to Yale College, Union Theological Seminary, married Julia H. Holmes. Was pastor of Presbyterian church at
Riverdale NY then pastor of 3rd church in Guilford (1866) then 1872 pastor of Belleville Ave Congregational Church in
Newark NJ and then Jamaica Plain, Mass (where my best man's father was later the pastor!). As of 1897, George Mills Boynton
was secretary of the Congregational Sunday-School and Publishing Society in Boston. Best regards - Doug

Boynton of Michigan (b.1/1/1881) from Joshua Boynton (b. 5/4/1679 - d.
10/29/1770) who married Mary Dole 5/1708, had 5 sons: Jeremiah, David,
Moses, Joshua, Enoch, and 8 daughters. I have only names for the
descendents: Joshua Boynton -> David Boynton -> Samuel Boynton -> John
Boynton -> Ezra Boynton -> Lucius Darwin Boynton -> Roy J. Boynton my
grandfather who had two brothers, Elon and Perry. I would appreciate any
information for this part of the lineage. from Dorie Boynton --- email: xcskiers (at) earthlink.net
My Boynton book offers the following:
William Boynton born 1606 came to America in 1638 and had a son Joshua (page 1 in book)
Joshua Boynton (born 1646) had a son also named Joshua (which you list above - page 3 in book)
Joshua Boynton (born 1679) had a son also named Joshua- page 5 in book)
Joshua Boynton (born Jan 20, 1717) married Martha Stickney on April 14, 1743 had 8 children (pages 12-13 in book)
I've lost the trail from here because the children are named: Joshua, Martha, Benjamin, Mary, Amos, Sarah, Elias, Elizabeth.
The only possible candidates would seem to be the males (because family name continued) named Joshua, Benjamin, and Elias
(Amos died young). The descendents of each of these are known - but I'm not yet seeing the obvious connection. (I suspect
that there is a missing generation before David's entry.)
Trying to trace back from the present failed because Roy, Elon, and Perry are not obviously listed (the book ends in 1896 and
is weak at the end). If any of this makes sense, I can dig deeper for you. I did not find Lucius Darwin Boynton. I did
find a Lucius A. Boynton (but he died at age 14 - page 173). I found a Darwin R. Boynton born in Grafton in 1818, the son
of David Boynton born in Paxton Maine in 1784. None of these sound like your relatives to me yet. Best regards - Doug
[Boynton] June 9, 2003 "Hi from Charles Boynton the 7th" From your list and Deana Schultz's list it appears that I
am the seventh Charles Boynton, dating from Methuselah's son Charles. Apparently we all find our individuality in the fact
that we all have a different middle name. My grandfather was Charles Herbert Boynton. His father, Charles Burton/Bert or
D. Boynton, I believe was actually named Charles Blane Boynton, as I believe my cousin Blane was named after his middle
name. At least I think I remember his mother telling me that. In any case, I was quite close to my grandfather even
though distance kept me from visiting much with him. Near the end of his life I had the pleasure of cleaning out grandpa's
attic and in so doing, inherited much of his library of books, including some of my great grandfather's books. Incidently,
he was a minister and labled the inside cover of his books with "PRIVATE LIBRARY C.B.BOYNTON". Like the rest of us out
there, I am astounded at how many of us there are. Nice work! Thanks. C & L BOYNTON --- email: beachhouse (at) wcn.net
Regarding my last entry: My father informs me that my great grandfather's middle name was indeed Burton and that he went by
Bert as a nick name. Oh and by the way, my son is apparently Charles Boynton the 8th. The only time that the name
Charles skipped a generation is when my grandparents named my father Dawn. The spelling reflects the blonde hair he was
born with, which reminded my grandmother, Florence "Hughes" Boynton, of the rising sun.
Thank you very much for the kind note. I actually have a great grandfather Charles Boynton and a
great-great grandfather Boynton:
Charles Boynton (May 9 1812 - June 30 1862) --- Married Matilda Burbank of Groveland on July 20 1846. Two sons:
Charles P, Willard H. Four daughters: Caroline P, Sarah D, Matilda A, Annie M. Killed at 2 pm in Battle of Glendale, aka
Frayser's Farm, White Oak Swamp, VA leaving a widow and young children.
Charles P. Boynton (Jan 20 1853 - ?) --- Grocer (bought the general store where he started working as a child when
his father died). Married Addie J. Peaslee of Newton NH. Three sons: Charles R, George H, Augustus S (my grandfather). One

[Boynton] June 20, 2003 "Boynton" Along with many others I studied WVO Quine at college. I notice his Boynton
ancestry. I used to live very near Boynton and know the Boynton estate, just outside Bridlington on the Driffield road.
From the genealogy "William Boynton (Yorkshire, England) (1605 or 1606 -) --- Planter, weaver, tailor, teacher. Married
Elizabeth Jackson (in England, she came to Rowley with him). Four sons born in Rowley: John (Dec 19 1640 - Mar 26, 1665);
Zachariah (Oct 11 1644 - Aug 4 1660); Joshua (Mar 10 1646 - ?); Caleb (Apr 7 1650 - ?). Three daughters: Elizabeth
(Dec 11 1642 - ?); Mary (July 23 1648 - ?); Sarah (Dec 1 1652 - Aug 8 1654). William Boynton joined the expedition
(with his brother John) under the auspices of Sir Matthew Boynton in 1637 to settle in New England." Many of the names in
the family tree reflect places local to Bridlington, East Yorkshire and I know them well, Grindale (a small village where I
once lived), East Heslerton, Acclam, Newton. Boynton Hall is a fine building in woody grounds, which often hosts charity
fetes etc. Congratulations on an interesting addition to a philosopher's website.

correction. WVO Quine is my father and my mother is a Boynton. Therefore I am the first generation to share both Boynton
and Quine ancestors. Regards - Doug Addendum: Dear Sir/ Madam,
I used to live in East Yorkshire, near Bridlington. In the 1970' s I remember studying Quine at college. I was not very
good at philosophy in those days but he contributed to a view I now hold that science is three parts poetry. I am only
80% sure of this but I believe the main (titled) ancestral branch of the Boynton family tree now resides at
Burton Agnes Hall, Burton Agnes, Driffield, East Yorkshire. The small village, Burton Agnes has a large duck pond. It
used to be always cracking and draining. The village is located on the edge of The Wolds, a large region of arable
cornfields. The land is so productive there are hardly any woods in East Yorkshire. Yours Faithfully, Mr. J.O. Lambert.
[Boynton] June 25, 2003 "Hello to the Boyntons" I never knew there were so many! My father,
Geoffrey Rockwell Boynton, son of George H. Boynton, Sr. was born in Huntington New York. He tells me that our particular
branch came north from Atlanta where they had lived for many generations, though originally hailed from Vermont. My great
aunt Virginia Boynton Cromer still lives in Atlanta. Thanks for the history! --- Mark D. Boynton --

[Boynton] July 12, 2003 "Revolutionary War military members and deaths." Good morning. I am doing some research on
the Boynton family and their involvement in the Revolutionary/1812/Civil War. I need to know if they were KIA, or honorably
detached for membership in some of the organizations of those periods. I have been a member of the
Mass. Ancient and Honorable some time ago but lost track of how I can find the information and hope you can assist me. I
currently live in New Hampshire. Best regards, Jim Boynton --- focusnhinst (at) comcast.net
Dear Jim, Since the Boynton family first arrived in America in 1638, a tremendous number of Boyntons were here
for the early wars. The Boynton family history book (as of 1896) runs some 350 pages including many details of heroic
efforts and patriotic contributions by our ancestors. I'd suggest buying a copy of the book - there is a bookseller listed
at the web site: www.quine.org/boynton.html As one very close example, my great, great grandfather: Charles Boynton
(May 9 1812 - June 30 1862) --- Married Matilda Burbank of Groveland on July 20 1846. Two sons: Charles P, Willard H.
Four daughters: Caroline P, Sarah D, Matilda A, Annie M. Killed at 2 pm in Battle of Glendale, aka Frayser's Farm,
White Oak Swamp, VA leaving a widow and young children. Best regards - Doug
July 13, 2003 RE: Revolutionary War military members and deaths." Douglas, thank you for returning my email. I have
looked at your site which is, well just fantastic and have located the Higginson Book Company and I will purchase the
Boynton books. Thank you for your most helpful assistance. I hail from my Father Robert Lester of the
Lynn-Saugus Boynton's and my mother from the Berube/Roy families of Rimounski, Canada. I am myself in my young sixties,

[Boynton] July 14, 2003 "Boynton family info..." Hi Doug A few months ago you helped me out with some information I
needed on a Frank Otis Boynton. You gave me the lineage back many generations. I just wanted to let you know that while
researching it I discovered that Amilda Lucrettia Clark who married Austin Boynton of Coventry CT was a descendant of seven
Mayflower passengers. I decided to pursue membership in the Mayflower Society and tonight I got word from the
State Historian of the Mayflower Society that my application was approved in Plymouth and I will receive the "General Number"
in about 7 days.
This means that Austin Boynton's descendants thru Amilda and Frank Boynton's descendants are also Mayflower descendants.
I want to thank you again for helping me out. If you would like to see the lineage back to John Alden (my Mayflower
passenger I picked) let me know and I will forward it to you. I have a listing of all the source records I used
if anyone is interested also. Sincerely, Gary Nilson, Wallingford, CT

who her parents were? She married Thomas Hairston in Georgia in 1807. -- Donna Lane email: ddlane (at) cox-internet.com
Donna - Sorry I've struck out. My Boynton book (page 96) lists only a Lucretia A. Boynton (born June 1, 1832)
who married Thomas N. Hooper, lived in Davenport, Iowa and had 7 children (her ancestors can be traced all the way back).
I found no references to any "Hairston" family members. Maybe someone else will be able to help through the guest book.

[Boynton] August 18, 2003 "James Byington 1779 want to tie to Boyntons possible David Byington 1734" Re: James Byington (Bastard, Leeds, Ontario, Canada). I found this fantastic site through Goggle. Thank you for your work! For generations our family has been trying to find information to tie James Byington to the Boynton line. (James b. Abt 1775; d. Bastard, Leeds, Ontario, Canada about 1825; wife Susannah Nichols originally from Rhode Island, via Stephentown, New York, also died in Bastard, Leeds, Canada.) (Their daughter Mary Byington my 4th great grandmother was born 1811, Bastard, Leeds, Canada; married Southworth, died in Utah.) Some think James' parents may be David Byington b. 1734, Branford, New Haven, Ct. and mother Mary Sheldon. We cannot prove this. Were the Byontons Puritans? The Byingtons buried in Bastard, Leeds, Ontario, Canada, were buried in the United Church Cemetery. Did they keep Church records? We have tried with researchers and have only come up with the following article from North Seas Lantern, July-August 1982, p. 23: "The Byington Family of Portland (Ontario, Canada): James Byington, son of David and Mary Byington, fled the United States as United Empire Loyalists with his parents and settled in Nova Scotia. Descended from one of the three brothers who had arrived in Mass. In 1628. It was a great decision to leave. He married Susannah Nichols in approx. 1798. The family farmed but it is best remembered as carpenters and cabinet-makers and many local houses possess interior woodwork and furniture which attest to their skill. Many a local person went to his eternal rest in a Byington coffin. 8 generations in Canada, the family is still represented by the community. (1982)" I need any help I can get. I have searched many places, not on Loyalist Lists that I can see. Thank you. Merle Romer email: RomerM (at) ldschurch.org
My 1896 Boynton reference book records the name change from Boynton to Boyington / Byington by John Boynton who was baptised in Newbury, Massachusetts on April 19, 1676 and later married Jane Swain. His Boyington / Byington descendants are recorded in pages 262 through 286 of the book. One hundred years later, in 1996 Roy E. Byington published a book "Byington, Boynton, Baker Genealogy (with the descendants of Cyrus Irving Byington of Norwalk, Connedcticut 1865-1953)". With my poor index, I regret that I have not yet found the linkage requested by Merle - has anyone else? By the way, the North Seas Lantern seems to have some errors. There were 2 Boynton brothers (not three) that came from England in 1638 (not 1628). Regards - Doug

[Boynton] August 18, 2003 "William Warren Boyington" I'm so happy to have found this site which gave me some information about the Boynton's in England. I'm also hoping to find any descendants of William Warren (W.W.) Boyington, the Chicago architect. He was married to Eunice Bingham Miller and they had 10 children. My mother was the daughter of William Walls who was the son of Homer H (son of W W) and Nance Josephine Walls. Nance and William had two children. Their son, William, had five children and their daughter, Ida Maude had no children. I know all of my cousins; however, we are sure there must be other descendents and we would love to know them and learn family lore. My mother was raised by her grandmother, Nance, and remembered the family being approached about and inheritance of property, a "castle" in England. Nance refused it; but, it must have been offered to other family members. Plus, W.W. seems like a fascinating man and we'd like to know more about him. If you're out there, please e-mail me... Susan E. Norman ...susane1 (at) earthlink.net
Susan, thank you very much for the detailed message which has been posted in the Boynton (Byington, Boyington) guest book. My 1896 Boynton family history books shows a picture of the Boynton "castle" (manor house). William Warren Boyington is listed in there on page 276 as "an architect of note in Chicago" together with his siblings and children all linking into the family history. Best regards- Doug

[Boynton] October 21, 2003 "Jonathan Boynton" --- Jonathan Boynton witnessed the will of Richard(1) Hall of Bradford, MA dated November 18th, 1723. Richard Hall arrived in Bradford around 1673, but his origins are as yet unknown. Boynton was a neighbor and possibly a relative as we do not yet know Richard Hall's wife Martha's maiden name. Here are my notes on Jonathan Boynton:
NOTE by Jeff Hall 3/6/03: (prob. the Jonathan Boynton b. 8/19/1684 in Rowley who married in 1711 Margaret Harriman b. 8/19/1686 (coincidence!), of Bradford, MA. She was m. 1st to Daniel Gage and 3rd to John Stuart (LDS AFN:43TL-58).
Margaret’s mother was Sarah Palmer (poss. related to Richard(2) Hall’s 1st mother-in-law).
Jonathan’s nephew Richard, son of Richard and Sarah Dresser, is probably the Richard Boynton of Tewksbury who in 1743 bought 57 acres of land from Richard(2) Hall on the Nashua River in Harvard, MA for 220 pounds.
Richard Boynton’s wife was Jerusha Hutchins. Her uncle Joseph Hutchins, Jr. owned the land that bounded this Harvard property to the south. He also witnessed the deed.
To the east of this piece of land in Harvard was the property of Simeon Farnsworth who was married to Martha Hall, Richard(2)’s daughter. To make matters even more interesting, Jerusha (Hutchins) Boynton’s mother was a descendant of the John Hazeltine of Bradford who was a first settler of Bradford, MA and the donor of the land on which the first 2 meeting houses of Bradford were built and on which the first Bradford burial ground was placed.
Bounding the Bradford burial ground land in Bradford was a "5 rail fence" that, according to the town history, ran to the fence of “Goodman Hall” (“Goodman” being an archaic way of saying Esteemed, or Citizen, or Mister.). This places Richard(1) Hall's land between the old burial ground and the Merrimack River, in current day Bradford. Sadly, this land is now a water treatment plant, but it was once the source of all drinking water for Bradford (19th century), and prior to that some prime farm land. The land lies just along the island once called Hales Island (not Hall's).

[Boynton] November 12, 2003 "Boyntons and the Boynton Estate in York" --- Just wanted to say hello. My grandmother's grandmother was Amanda Melvina Boynton daug of David 1785 NH, descendant of John, brother to your William. I visited Wintringham, near York, in 1998 and other places known to the ancient Boyntons in England. Old church is still standing with gravestones all around it. It was raining and the man who kindly took me there had an appt. to keep, so the time was too short but memorable. Went to Burton Agnes on east coast, still in York. Boynton's married into the owners and it is called a Boynton estate, open the public for a fee. Hull is not far from there where John and William set sail for the colonies. Perhaps you have been there and know these things? Be nice to hear from you. Joanne in Tucson --- email JOTERP (at) aol.com

- tilbe (at) netzero.net Jim - The Boynton book has details of the Boynton - Strong - Powers connection on page 26. John Moore Boynton was born in 1793 and married Charlotte Powers of Hollis. They lived in Groveland (MA) then in Hollis and then in Barnard and Pomfret (VT). He has a 'double jointed knee' and served in the War of 1812. He died Oct. 22, 1871. She died Apr. 8, 1851. They had '8 children' (although the list shows only 5). Mary Boynton is shown as the 4th child and she married John Strong. John Moore Boynton's ancestors were: Jonathan Boynton (father), David Boynton (GF), Joshua Boynton (GGF), Joshua Boynton (GGGF), and William Boynton (GGGGF) who came to America in 1638. The ancestors back another 550 years are at my website. The Moore name has a remarkable story. Jonathan Boynton married Mary, the widow of John Moore. John Moore had been a Drum Major and Jonathan Boynton was a Fife Major in the Revolutionary Army. Moore asked Boynton to marry his widow if he died in the war (as he did). Best regards - Doug

I'm actually researching the family house at 1321 R Street for its current owner, a gentleman who is turning the house into condominiums, but wanted to know its history. I will be recommending that he call the building the Boynton! Seems Henry had the place built about 1878 or 1879, and would remain its owner during his correspondent years (and death) in 1905. I have a few pictures of the person, but would love to be able to provide pictures of events at the house if they are available anywhere (family scrapbooks) I'll certainly provide a copy of the house history in return, and have plans to feature it in a local paper history column I author.

[Boynton] July 20, 2004 "painter named Blanche Boynton" --- I have been in possission of a small watercolor called "The Trysting Place".
My mother found it years ago, and since she lived in RI, I assume it was
As far as I can tell, it looks like the artist was Blanche Boynton, signed
The signature is very small and hard to read....do you know of a Blanche
Boynton from the RI or CT area who was an artist?
If so, I would appreciate any information you may have. If I read the
signature incorrectly then I guess I'll need a more powerful magnifying glass!

Dear Nancy -
I do not see any reference to a painter named Blanche Boynton. My Boynton history book shows 3 (all near the right dates), I can go earlier and trace their ancestors but cannot provide any newer information....
1/ Blanche H. Boynton (page 246) born August 20, 1882 the daughter of George A. Boynton (born Feb 16, 1845) and Abbie L. Dalton who lived in Little Boars Head, NH
2/ Blanche A. Boynton (page 250) daughter of Charles E. Boynton (born Nov. 10, 1835) and Elvira A. Edson
3/ Blanche A. Boynton (page 258) who married James A. Carey and lived in Seattle, Washington [Blanche was the daughter of Ebenezer Vinton Boynton (born around 1856) and Anna B. Williams]
[Boynton] December 11, 2004 "New address" --- Greetings,Boyntons! We have moved our little Boynton family to Idaho from Florida. What a difference! Guess this is how the Boyntons get scattered around.Any Boynton researchers can contact us here at

[Boynton] December 18, 2004 "Boynton Descendant" --- Hi Doug,
I came across your site searching for more on my Boynton family. I am the ggrandaughter of Milo Boynton born 9-23-1869 in PA, son of Alfred Boynton & Adeline Corey. I am the 4th ggrandaughter of Methusalah Boynton & Amelia Dodge. I had heard of the Boynton Genealogy Book, but I wasn't sure if these were ancestors of mine. I had received some information from a cousin but not much info past Methusalah. Can you help me? Thank you for such a wonderful website.
Betty (BettBoop223) Betty -
The last month has kept me very busy so I am running far behind in my email. Thank you for the message that you sent last month.
Methusalah Boynton (generation 6 in USA) & Amelia Dodge are also my ancestors (they are page 34 in the Boynton book). I guess we are distant cousins.
Methusalah Boynton and Amelia Dodge had 5 children (page 35, descendents are known for each of them):
1/ Methusalah Boynton (born May 4, 1807, changed his name to Alfred) and married Abigail Moody (children all born in Ohio)
2/ Mary Ann Boynton
3/ Charles Boynton married Matulda Burbank (Groveland, MA) - my ancestor
4/ Abraham D. Boynton married Hannah Burbank
5/ Enoch Boynton married Charlotte Kimball
If any of this helps, please tell me and I can send you details of the next generation
Best regards - Doug
