in Somerville. [continued from Vol. III., no. 4.] By Sara A. S. Carpenter. Before continuing with the narrative of Gregory Stone and Some of His Descendants, which ended in Historic Leaves, Vol. III., No. 4, it may be well to add to the notes of the ancestry of Gregory Stone there given further information as to the line of his immediate predecessors, which has been published by the Stone Family Association within two years. A thorough search of the parish records of Great Bromley, Essex county, Eng., has led to the following conclusions on the part of the investigators: The Symond Stone whose will was probated February 10, 1510, had a son David, who was the great-grandfather of Gregory Stone; the intervening relatives were a Symond and a David. The parish of Ardley adjoined that of Great Bromley, and the Stones named in the Court Rolls of Ardley are without doubt of the same family as that from which Gregory and Simon Stone descended. The latter were emigrants to this country

he crew of Captain Ireson, rather than himself, were responsible for the abandonment of the disabled vessel. To screen themselves they charged their captain with the crime. In view of this the writer of the ballad addressed the following letter to the historian:— oak Knoll, Danvers, 5 mo. 18, 1880. my dear friend: I heartily thank thee for a copy of thy History of Marblehead. I have read it with great interest and think good use has been made of the abundant material. No town in Essex County has a record more honorable than Marblehead; no one has done more to develop the industrial interests of our New England seaboard, and certainly none have given such evidence of self-sacrificing patriotism. I am glad the story of it has been at last told, and told so well. I have now no doubt that thy version of Skipper Ireson's ride is the correct one. My verse was founded solely on a fragment of rhyme which I heard from one of my early schoolmates, a native of Marblehead. I suppos

tramp that startled camp and town, And shook the walls of slavery down, The spectral march of old John Brown! The storm that swept through battle-days, The triumph after long delays, The bondmen giving God the praise! Voice of a ransomed race, sing on Till Freedom's every right is won, And slavery's every wrong undone! 1880. Garrison The earliest poem in this division was my youthful tribute to the great reformer when himself a young man he was first sounding his trumpet in Essex County. I close with the verses inscribed to him at the end of his earthly career, May 24, 1879. My poetical service in the cause of freedom is thus almost synchronous with his life of devotion to the same cause. the storm and peril overpast, The hounding hatred shamed and still, Go, soul of freedom! take at last The place which thou alone canst fill. Confirm the lesson taught of old— Life saved for self is lost, while they Who lose it in His service hold The lease of God's eternal day. No

cursion at Dingle Dell. Twice, nay, three times, a year, since third parties have been in fashion, the delegates of the political churches assemble in Ipswich to pass patriotic resolutions, and designate the candidates whom the good people of Essex County, with implicit faith in the wisdom of the selection, are expected to vote for. For the rest there are pleasant walks and drives around the picturesque village. The people are noted for their hospitality; in summer the sea-wind blows cool over. Panics like the one we have described might bow and sway them like reeds in the wind; but they stood up like the oaks of their own forests beneath the thunder and the hail of actual calamity. It was certainly lucky for the good people of Essex County that no wicked wag of a Tory undertook to immortalize in rhyme their ridiculous hegira, as Judge Hopkinson did the famous Battle of the Kegs in Philadelphia. Like the more recent Madawaska war in Maine, the great Chepatchet demonstration in R

is strong enough, rich enough, wise enough, and, I believe, humane and Christian enough to do it. The Republican Party. Read at a meeting of the Essex Club, in Boston, November, 1885. Amesbury, 11th Mo., 10, 1885. I am sorry that I cannot accept thy invitation to attend the meeting of the Essex Club on the 14th inst. I should be glad to meet my old Republican friends and congratulate them on the results of the election in Massachusetts, and especially in our good old county of Essex. Some of our friends and neighbors, who have been with us heretofore, last year saw fit to vote with the opposite party. I would be the last to deny their perfect right to do so, or to impeach their motives, but I think they were mistaken in expecting that party to reform the abuses and evils which they complained of. President Cleveland has proved himself better than his party, and has done and said some good things which I give him full credit for, but the instincts of his party are ag
concealed, and kept running from front to flank, and from flank to rear, loading their pieces at one place and discharging them at another. This fire was continued till sunset. Beyond Lexington the troops were attacked by men chiefly from Essex County and the lower towns. Gordon says there were never more than about four hundred provincials together attacking at one and the same time, and often scarce that number. The British flankers entered the houses on the line of march, plundering an Salem Gazette for May 5, 1775, states, On Thursday the twentieth past, the bodies of eleven of the unfortunate persons who fell in the battle, were collected together and buried at Medford. Menotomy is occasionally confounded with Medford by Essex county writers on the battle. On the morning of the 20th, Capt. John Battle, of Dedham, was ordered with his company of militia, to pass over the ground which had been the scene of action the preceding day, and bury such of the slain as he should
rporated in the State. There are six parishes of the same name in England, from one of which probably the name was taken. Perhaps the best claim can be made for Waltham-Abbey, called also Waltham Holy Cross, a market town and parish of the County of Essex, twelve miles N. by E. from London, on the left bank of the river Lea, to which place belongs Nasing, the birthplace or home of the Rev. John Eliot, and other early settlers of New England. It is a large, irregular town, situated near the Lely founded about A. D. 1020, by Tovi, (Stallere or Standard-bearer to Canute the Dane, King of England), who built a hunting-seat in the forest, The original great forest which extended, in a desultory manner, over the largest part of the County of Essex, and of which what now remains of Epping or Waltham Forest is but a remnant. Epping Forest lies to the north and north-east of London, comprises a series of woodlands, beginning at Leytonstone, seven miles from London, and ending at Epping,
acquainted with and married, September 30, 1791, Lucy, daughter of Hon. Oliver and Lydia (Baldwin) Prescott. It is said he sat in his office six weeks without taking a fee, and then received a pistareen. Mr. Bigelow was endowed with ready apprehension, and an active and inquisitive mind, gathering knowledge with remarkable facility, exact method and system, thus enabling him to compass a vast amount of reading. He soon acquired a wide reputation and a large practice in Middlesex, Suffolk, Essex and Worcester counties, and in New Hampshire. Samuel Dana, Jr., another noted lawyer, and Mr. Bigelow became the leaders of the Middlesex bar. They were retained in the most important cases of the neighborhood, and were generally on opposite sides. In politics, as well as at the bar, they were pitted against each other, but in social life they were the best of friends. Mr. Bigelow was a prominent Federalist, and took an active part in politics. He became a member of the Massachusetts Ho
