John Folger and his son Peter (the name was then frequently written Foulger), are said to have crossed the Atlantic in the same ship with Hugh Peters, in the year 1635. They came from Norwich in the county of Norfolk, England. Peter was then about 18 years of age. At what time they settled at Watertown, Mass., is not known, but in 1642 John Folger was possessed of a homestead in that town, and owned six acres of land. It is probable that John and Peter Folger accompanied Thomas Mayhew, Jr., to Martha's Vineyard in 1641or 1642. John owned a house, upland, commonage and meadow land at the Vineyard, as appears by the vineyard records. John Folger died about 1660. Meribell Folger his widow, was living in 1664. Her surname is said to have been Gibbs. According to tradition, John was a widower when he came over; if this be correct, he must have married her after his arrival in America.

Notes for PETER FOLGER:
Source: The Folger Family, Compiled by William Coleman Folger of Nantucket, a Corresponding Member of the N. E. Historic-Genealogical Society.

Peter Folger, son of John, born in England, accompanied his father to America in 1635, and probably emigrated with him to the Vineyard in 1642. He married in 1644, Mary Morrill, who had been an inmate in the family of Hugh Peters, and according to tradition a fellow passenger with him from England. While at the vineyard he taught school and also practiced as a surveyor of land. He also assisted the younger Thomas Mayhew in his work of christianizing the native Indians. Rev. Experience Mayhew, in a letter to John Gardner, Esq., dated 1694, stated that when Thomas Mayhew, Jr., left for England in 1657, he left the care of his church or mission with Peter Folger. Peter became a Baptist in his sentiments, and after his removal to Nantucket is said to have baptized two persons in Waiptequage pond.
At a meeting of the proprietors of the island of Nantucket, held in Salisbury in the latter part of 1660 or early part of 1661, five persons were chosen to measure and lay out the land, and in the order it is said, that what shall be done by them, or any three of them, Peter Folger being one, shall be accounted legal and valid. The vote shows the confidence they placed in his judgment and integrity.
While a resident at the vineyard he acquired the Indian language, which was of great service to him in business affairs and in enabling him to communicate religious instruction to the natives.
In the summer of 1659, he is said to have accompanied as an interpreter, Tristram Coffin and others who visited the island of Nantucket to view it about the time of the purchase of Mayhew. He was there in 1661 and 1662, surveying, and on the 4th of July, 1663, the proprietors of Nantucket granted him half a share of land on Nantucket, or half as much as one of the twenty purchasers, provided he would come to inhabit with his family on the aforesaid island within one year after that date, and attend the English in the way of an interpreter between the Indians and them upon all necessary occasions. He accepted the grant and moved there with his family within the specified time.
On the 21st of July, 1673, he was chosen clerk of the courts, which office he held some years. In his poem-"A Looking Glass for the Times," published April 23, 1676, he shows himself an advocate for religious liberty, and strongly condemns the persecuting spirit exhibited in New England in his day. Dr. Benjamin Franklin, his grandson, when in England found no arms for the Folgers at the Herald's office, and concluded that they were a Flemish family who came over in the time of Queen Elizabeth. There were others of the name in England besides John Folger and son, as in the latter part of last century a young man named Thomas Folger, Jr., son of Thomas and Mary (Rant) Folger of Norfolk, England, came over and married Abigail, dau of Daniel Folger, at Easton, NY. This Thomas Folger moved to Charlton, Saratoga county, NY, where he died May 22, 1838, aged 80 years.

Source: "The History of Nantucket Co., Island and Town...," by Alexander Starbuck, Pub. Boston: C.E. Goodspeed & Co. 1924
Savage in his Genealogical Dictionary in describing Peter Folger, the first of the name to be connected with Nantucket, says that he came from Norwich, County Norfolk, England in 1635, went early from Watertown to Martha's Vineyard, probably with Thomas Mayhew. He bestowed great pains in teaching the Indians, as successor to Mayhew, and removed about 1663 to the island, where his name has ever since been in high regard.

Died in Nantucket 1690, buried near Capt. John Gardner

10. PATIENCE4 FOLGER (PETER3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born ABT 1656 in Martha's Vineyard, MA (Source: "Genealogy of the Gordon-Macy Hiddleston-Curtis and Allied Families", by Jessie Gordon Flack and Maybelle Gordon Carman, Pub.

J G Flack 1967.).

Notes for PATIENCE FOLGER:
Source: The Folger Family, Compiled by william Coleman Folger of Nantucket, a Corresponding Member of the N. E. Historic-Genealogical Society.

The name of Patience Folger's 1st husband has been given by genealogists here both John and Ebenezer; whether either was right is doubtful. I believe they lived in North Carolina, where probably the husband died; and the widow returned to Nantucket, where she married James Gardner, son of Richard, being his 2d or 3d wife. She died 1 mo., 1717-18. The name of Ferdinando Harker appears in a business transaction here under date of Feb. 7, 1681-2. Even the late B Franklin Folger, so well versed as he was in the Nantucket genealogies, could not be certain of the given name of the first husband of Patience. Very likely the Ebenezer whom I have given as a son, may be a grandson of patience. There are many descendants of Jonathan and Hepzibah (Harker) Coffin.

Children of PATIENCE FOLGER and EBENEZER HARKER are:
25. i. HEPSABETH5 HARKER, b. 1694; d. 30 Dec 1773.

Notes for BENJAMIN FRANKLIN:
Benjamin Franklin (1706-90) was born in Boston but moved at an early age to Philadelphia where his countless talents and unlimited energies found expression in successful contributions as a stateman, diplomat, scientist, editor-author, and philosopher, During the Revolution he was appointed American Minister Plenipotentiary to the French Court enabling him to function also as the Navy's representative in Europe. He promoted the plan to bring the war to British shores, supporting Lambert Wickes' spectacul ar raids and enabling John Paul Jones to perform his daring feats by providing funds, attending to purchases and repairs, and determining questions of authority and discipline. His astute and visionary policies merit for him deserved recognition in the annals of the infant Navy as well as esteem as a founder of the United States.

Notes for JOHN CARTWRIGHT:
Merchant & Shipmaster, general debility

Source: "Historic Nantucket Magazine," Winter 2000, Volume 49, No. 1, pg 14
When John Cartwright (1752-1837) died in 1837, his candlehouse and cooper's shop were valued at $2,000 and the newspaper eulogized him as "having passed through a long and active life without an imputation on his integrity, or a desire to be otherwise than useful to his fellow men." These traits suggest that Cartwright chose to live by Quaker tenets, although he was not formally a member of the Society of Friends. Having his silhouette cut instead of his portrait painted was considered "proper" by the Society, expressing a "plain and simple" aestetic, without taking on worldly airs.

(1/1997) ); d. 19 Feb 1869, Nantucket, MA (Source: copy of Cert. of death Record #8.); m. ELLEN MARIA WELD, 05 Jun 1832, Nantucket, MA (Source: Nantucket Vital Records 3:180 ); b. 21 Aug 1814, Roxbury, MA (Source: Place: Barney Genealogical Record, a 1594-page holograph document in the possession of the Nantucket Historical Assoc., considered to be the most accurate of any genealogical records of Nantucket now available. (1/1997)); d. 26 Apr 1873, Roxbury MA.

Notes for ELLEN MARIA WELD:
Nantucket VR 2:611 has birth date Aug. 21, 1814

Research done by Certified Geneoligist, David T. Robertson, Genealogical Consultant & Family History Researcher, Telephone (617)- 479-3095, E Mail DTRobertson@Prodigy.net, P.O. Box 309, Quincy Center, Massachusetts 02269-0309, on August 23, 1998

Ellen Maria Weld was not born in Nantucket. In the book Vital Records of Nantucket she is the only Weld birth listed and following the entry is the source note "p.r.38" meaning private record 38. This record was the genealogical research of William C. Folger which was placed in the possession of the Nantucket Historical Association. The authors of Nantucket VRs noted "This compilation has been used because of the valuable clues it affords, but its statements should be received with caution, as it is not free from errors. It should be understood that in many instances the events recorded did not take place in Nantucket.." In fact I find evidence to doubt that Ellen ever lived on Nantucket. Her husband's family, the Cartwrights, did originate on Nantucket. It is possible that John W. Cartwright, Sr. was born there, though his birth record comes from the same source as his wife's. I found that their son John W. Cartwright Jr. also married a Boston woman, (Nantucket VR 179). Their daughter Ann Eliza married James H. Richardson of Boston, (Nantucket VR 177). Their son John W. married Mary J. Johnson of Boston, (Nantucket VR 179). This suggest to me that they lived in Boston not Nantucket.


According to David Freeman e-mail Dvfree@aol.com
He was doing research in family boxes and had turned up the family bible started when Ellen Maria Weld Married John W. Cartwright, Sr. The page where vital data is typically listed has a handwritten entry signed by JWC that they were married 5 June 1832 by George Gay Justice of the Peace.

This finding backs up other data he has that the 5 April 1832 date for the marriage in the Nantucket Vital Records 4:493 is wrong. John Jr. (his G Grandfather) was born 23 December 1832. Ellen Maria was two months pregnant when they were married. That explains why someone from a Boston Blueblood family was married by a JP rather than a minister.

Marriage Notes for JOHN CARTWRIGHT and ELLEN WELD:
From the Family Bible in the posession of David Freeman, 1509 Birch Anenue, Richland WA (address as of 1/1/2003) the marriage date was 6/5/1832 not 4/5/1832 as some records have it. The bible note was written by John William Cartwright himself and adds that Justice of the Peace George Gay performed the ceremony.
Since my G Grandfather John Jr. was born in December, this means Ellen Maria was quite pregnant when they were married. As further evidence is the fact that a JP married them. Ellen Maria Weld was from a very well known Boston Braman family and, under normal circumstances, a large church wedding would have been planned. Better to have a JP marry them and tell everyone they had been married earlier.
