Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Carlyle's laugh and other surprises, IX: George Bancroft (search)
IX: George Bancroft George Bancroft, who died in Washington, D. C., on January 17, 1891, was born at Worcester, Massachusetts, October 3, 1800, being the son of Aaron and Lucretia (Chandler) Bancroft. His first American ancestor in the male line was John Bancroft, who came to this country from England, arriving on June 12, 1632, and settling at Lynn, Massachusetts. There is no evidence of any especial literary or scholarly tastes in his early ancestors, although one at least among them bMr. J. R. Green, proudly and justly claimed for himself: I know what men will say of me — he died learning. But Mr. Bancroft at least died laboring, and in the harness. Mr. Bancroft was twice married, first to Miss Sarah H. Dwight, who died June 26, 1837, and in the following year to Mrs. Elizabeth (Davis) Bliss. By the first marriage he had several children, of whom John Chandler (Harvard, 1854) died in Europe, and George (Harvard, 1856) has spent most of his life in foreign countries.

Probate Office in Boston. After leaving small legacies to different relatives, handsome enamelled mourning rings to friends (among others to Ebenezer Tirell (?) and David Osgood), he gives to the Town of Medford for the support of schools 100 acres of land in Granby formerly known by the name of South Hadley. All the remaining land in Granby (809 acres) and his right of land in the county of Worcester (928 acres) which he bought December 28, 1752, in company with the Hon. James Otis, John Chandler and Caleb Daney, he gives to the Overseers and Corporation of Harvard College to endow a professorship of laws or physics and anatomy, and they shall have full power to sell said lands and to put the money out at interest, the income whereof shall be for the aforesaid purpose. The simple professorship of laws led the way to the establishment of the Harvard Law School, so that our Cambridge University has much to thank Isaac Royall for. A special bequest gives to Harriot Pepperell, a
