Family of William Barstow (1208) & Anna Hubbard (1411)

3018. Joseph Barstow. Born on 6 Jun 1639 in Dedham, MA.174 Joseph, the Son of William Barsto & [An] his wife, was borne the 6th of the 4 mo. 1639. At the age of 1, Joseph was baptized in Dedham, MA, on 25 Apr 1641.14 Joseph died in Scituate, MA, on 17 Apr 1712; he was 72.48

Joseph lived in a house thirty rods north-east of Hanover corners in Scituate. It was a garrison house in Philip’s war. The house of Daniel Sherman stood on the site in 1937.49 39

From the History of Hanover, page 18:158
    “Farther east, or 41 rods N. E. of the Corners, and opposite the residence of Joseph S. Bates, on Broadway, stood the house of Joseph Barstow, grandson of Williamn which was used as a block-house or garrison house in the Indian War of 1676. This structure was removed many years ago, but its foundation is still visible [in 1872], and the outlines of the same may be traced even from the road.
    “In March 1672, liberty was ‘graunted and allowed to Joseph Barstow to keep an ordinary at the place where he now lives, and that he be provided always with necessaries for the entertainment of travellers, and keep good order in his house, that there be no just cause of complaint against him in that behalfe.’ [Col. Rec. 3, 178.]
    “Across the North River, in Oct. 1656, William, Senr. was authorised to build a bridge, ‘above the third herring bJrook, at stoney reache, being the place where now passengers goe freqnently over; the said bridge to bee made sufficient for horse and foot; and to cleare and make a way to Hughes Cross, and to open and clear and make a way along beyand Hughes Crosse toward the bay, soe as to avoid a certain Rocky hill and swamp;- he to have £12 current countrey pay for so doing.’ [Col. Rec. 3. 107]
    “July 27. 1662, Mr. Barstow agreed with Mr. Constant Southworth, and Major Josias Winslow, in behalf of the Colony of New Plymouth, to keep in repair and maintain the bridge called Barstow’s bridge, upon the North River, in consideration of £20 in hand paid, for 20 years, to serve for transportation of passengers, horses, chattle, and all such use as they shall ordinarily put it to, and pledged for the fulfilment of this contract, the house and land in and on which he dwelt, a small tract already disposed of to his son (in law) Moses Simmons, only excepted. [Col. Rec. 4, 76.]
    “This bridge, the first built on the stream, stood above the present bridcge and the old piers, which are still visible, and which belonged to the second bridge, are probably near, if not on the spot where Mr. Barstow built.
    “In 1657, Mr. Barstow was ‘allowed by the Court tco draw and sell wine, beer, and strong waters for passengers that come and goe over the bridge he hath lately made, or others that shall have occation, unless any just exception shall come in against him.’ [Col. Rec. 3, 115] He had been previously licensed to keep an ordinary; [Ibid. 4, 126] so that we think it probable that near his bridge he had a small building as a kind of toll-house, and here his refreshments were kept.
    “About 1662, a grant of land was made to William Barstow, ‘lying westward of Cornett Studsons graunt, in reference to satisfaction for his paines &c. in the countreys business;’ [ibid. 4, 6 and 186] and the commissioners were instructed to lay out for him not less than 40, nor more than 50 acres of arable land.
    “Benjamin, Capt. Joseph, and Samuel Barstow, were the representatives of tile family in Hanover, at the date of the incorporation of the town.
    “Benjamin, who occupied his grandfather’s house, was engaged principally in ship-building, at the yard established by the family on the North River, as early as 1690, and this business is still followed by his descendants. Some of his sons moved to Rochester, and established ship-yards, yet improved by their descendants, who are among the most active and enterprising men in Mattapoisett.
    “Capt. Joseph, in connexion with Benjamin Stetson, received in 1720, a grant of two acres of land on the Indian Head River, between Pine Hill and Rocky Run, for the accommodation of a forge and flnery, and erected the forge subsequently known as Barstow's forge, but now as Sylvester’s, and which was improved by his descendants for nearly a century, or until about the year 1800.
    “Samuel Barstow resided in the Drinkwater district, and owned land in the Central and Westerly parts of the town. He was engaged principally in farming, having an estate of nearly one thousand acres, and was somewhat interested in commercial pursuits as a ship owner, and in manufactures as proprietor of a mill.”

On 16 May 1666 when Joseph was 26, he married Susanna Lincoln (7299) , daughter of Thomas “the husbandman” Lincoln (2647) (22 Dec 1622-16 Aug 1692) & Margaret Langer (2646) (ca 1620-5 Mar 1693/4), in Scituate, MA.48 Born on 16 Aug 1646 in Hingham, MA.42 Susanna died in Scituate, MA, on 31 Jan 1730; she was 83.

From the History and Genealogy of the Briggs Family:39
Joseph settled north of Church Hill. In the Indian raid of 1676 his house was burned. He was a captain under Col. Benjamin Church in the Eastern Expedition in 1689. In the Phips’ Canada Expedition of 1690 he was Captain of a company in which there were 16 men from Scituate, many of whom never returned. Capt. Sylvester died in this expedition.

From A historical sketch of the town of Hanover:158
    Capt. Joseph lived where Samuel Waterman’s house stands [in 1853], in South Scituate [Norwell], near Church Hill, and improved the farm where he purchased of John Whiston, 1664. As a reward for his services in the Indian wars, a grant of land was made to him and his company, by the General Court, which was designed to have been in Maine, but which, when the line was run between the Provinces, proved to be in New Hampshire; and on a representation of these facts by Charles Turner, and others, agents for the claimants, in 1765, a new grant was made in Maine, on condition that 30 families and a minister should be settled, and a meeting-house built, within six years; and this is now known as the town of Turner, Maine.

It’s not clear who Samuel’s father was. It wasn’t Rev. Nicholas Baker of Hingham. His son Samuel, baptized 2 Oct 1638 at Hingham, married first Fear Robinson and second Abigail Lathrop. Alexander Baker had a son Samuel born 16 Jan 1636/7 at Boston and baptized there 5 Oct 1645 “being 7 years about 9 months old”, but in Alexander’s will of 18 Feb 1684[/5] there is no mention of a son Samuel Baker.

William married Martha [Barstow]. Martha died on 13 Aug 1711 in Scituate, MA.48
