Descendants of John Marchant


Generation No. 1

       1. John1 Marchant was born Abt. 1540 in Yeovil, Somerset, England. He married Eva Cominge July 18, 1568 in Yeovil Parish, Somerset County, England. She was born in England.

Notes for John Marchant:
John Marchant, abt 1540
This family hails from the Island of Guernsey, Channel Islands, UK. Direct descendants of Peter Le Marchant who died in 1335. Peter was the Lieutenant Governor and Bailiff of the Island of Guernsey early in the fourteenth century.
In 1689, a petition for recording the descent and genealogy of the Le Marchants in the Court of Hearaldy, was made and granted.
Three brothers, descendants of this family came to America. They settled on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard in the 1600's.

John was Keeper of the poor.
He was required, along with two other men to produce one pair of Almain Rivetts.
Almain Rivetts was light armour made flexible by overlapping plates sliding on rivets. They were guards for the elbows, which would account for the pairs. They were invented in Germany (hence "Allmain" - "allemand").

It should be noted only men of substance were ordered to produce armor.

1569, John is found in the Musters of Yeovil.

+       3       i.       John3 Marchant, born 1600 in Yoeville, Somerset, England; died Bef. 1670 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Mass..

Generation No. 3

       3. John3 Marchant (John2, John1) was born 1600 in Yoeville, Somerset, England, and died Bef. 1670 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Mass.. He married (1) Collette Gosselin?, daughter of Hellier Gosselin and Perotine. She died Abt. 1621. He married (2) Sarah ?? Abt. 1624 in Mass.. She was born Abt. 1595, and died December 03, 1638 in Mount Wollaston, Newport, R.I..

Notes for John Marchant:
JOHN MARCHANT [1087] (Gen. 11) Born 1600, died prob. bef. 1670; married SARAH [1083] (d. Dec. 3, 1638);
Feb. 24, 1638/9, there was granted 8 acres for himself and another male at Mount Wollaston, Braintree, Mass.;
June 2, 1638, admitted inhabitant of Newport, R. I. There was a William Merchant of Watertown, Mass., 1641, and John removed there prob. in 1642 and was there, 1645; removed to Yarmouth, Mass., bef. 1648 and June 7, 1648, was chosen constable there.
John prob. died prior to 1670, when his married son John [543] was promoted from ensign to lieut. in militia and was called "Senior". Bibliography: History of Martha's Vineyard, Mass., by Charles Edward Banks, M.D., 1911, Vol. 2, pp. 77-79 and Vol. 3, pp. 291-97.

(It is recorded in one source that)... JOHN MARCHANT the emigrant was descended from John Marchant and Joan Surbridge, who were married in Oxted, Surrey, July 14, 1566. He came from England to Newport, R. I., where he was an inhabitant June 2, 1638. He died prior to 1670, at which time his son John was called Senior. Other children are unknown.

Although it is unclear as to exactly when John came to this country, it is certain he was here before 1625, as this is when his son John was born in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts.

There are two different references to "Captain Marchant", both of which place him in Virginia between 1619-1621, in the P.R.O., England.
The first is a letter to Sir Edward Sandies in England from John Rolf "...a Dutch Man of Warr in the burden of 160 tones arrived at Point Comfort, the Commandors name Capt. Jope. He brought not anything but 20 odd Negroes, which we the Governor and Capt. Marchant bought for victualls * at the best and easier rate they could". (*whereof he was in great need as he pretended)
The second in the book, "Newes from Virginia", by John Smith. This is an excert of the book, page 70:
..."As yet, we have no houses to cover us, our tents were rotten, and our Cabbins were then nought: our heat commoditie was
ypon which we made chissels, the president and Capt. Martin's sickness constreyed me to be Caoe Marchant, and yet to spare no pains in making houses for the company, ----"

This is an article written by the New England Historical Society, "New England's Colonial Wars", A Consice History 1521-1775 by James R. Brann. F.A.C.G. It lists Major Colonies and their dates, 1620 Plymouth Bay Colony, 1626 Massachusetts Bay Colony. Given this time frame, perhaps this Capt. Marchant was our John Marchant, who very possible migrated northward.

In the "History of Barnstable County", "Annals of Yarmouth", pages 194-195, "...towards the charge of the late war", shows the tax-paing inhabitants at this date, and their comparative wealth. We retain order of names, inasmuch as it probably indicates neighborhood.

In the year 1643 an official canvass of every town in Plymouth Colony was made, to find the men, between the ages of sixteen and sixty years, who were able to bear arms. These lists are preserved in the Plymouth Records, but I have not thought best to insert them here, as the men were not properly soldiers.

In 1643, a more compact and responsible military organization was established in the three towns, Plymouth, Duxbury, and Marshfield. While a careful canvass of the colony was made that year, and account taken of every man "able to bear arms," this company was made up of chosen men, and was independent. None were received unless they were freemen, honest, and of good repute, and by the election of the members of the company. Training exercises were begun and ended with prayer. Strict order was enjoined, and any infringement of rules was punished with dismission from the company. Each man, upon election, must provide himself with a musket or sword, rest, bandoleers, etc. Only one third of whole company were allowed to carry pikes. The following rules were in force:

"All who are elected chief officers in this military company shall be so titled and forever afterwards so reputed, except he obtain a higher place. That every man enlisted in this company shall pay sixpence a quarter for the use of the company. That when any one of this company dies, the company shall come together with their armes, upon warning, and 'interr his corps' as a soldier, and according to his place and quality. All must take the oath of fidelity before admission to the company. All postures of pike and muskett, motions rankes and files, &c., messengers, skirmishes, sieges, batteries, watches, sentinells, &c., must be always performed according to true military discipline."

The officers appointed over this company were,

Capt. Myles Standish,
Lieut. Nathl Thomas,
Nathl. Souther, Clark,
Matthew Fuller, | sergeants.
Samuel Nash, |
(Listed is John MARCHANT of Yarmouth, 1670)

This from the Edgartown Records, as transcribed by; Katherine Merwin Mayhew, Martha's Vineyard Historian; Abishai Marchant, son of John Marchant, b. Yarmouth Jan 10, 1650/51, died after 1714 probably at Yarmouth. He was of Martha's Vineyard on Dec 6, 1693 when he sold land to Lt. John Coffin.
The following is from handwritten notes in the Edgartown Historical Society;

Plymouth Colony Records Vol. 5, p. 43: July 5, 1670, " Abishai Marchant, for being found to be in bed with Mary the wife of Morgan Jones, was fined the sume of 40s to the use of the Collonie."

Plymouth Colony Records Vol. 8, p. 132: " July 1670, fined L2, for above offence"


Plymouth Colony Records Vol. 5, p. 12: "Mar. 4, 1672/3 - Abishai Marchant & Mary Taylor for committing fornication with each other, fined each of them L5."

In the book; " History of Cape Cod [ History of Barnstable County ], Annals of Yarmouth, Vol. 2. p. 195: April 26, 1676, Abishai Marchant of Yarmouth " rated L1:15:3, towards the charge of the late was."
Evidently Abishai neglected to show up for duty and subsequently was fined.

In the book "History of Barnstable County", "Annals of Yarmouth" pages 195-195. "towards to late war", shows both the tax-paying inhabitants at this date, and their comparative wealth. We retain order of names, inasmuch as it probably indicates neighborhood.
Abishai Marchant, 1.15. 3,
he appears 28th on the list in the first colum, between Anthony Fry and Mr. Sunderland.

Abishai's father John appears in the second column, second to last on the list. John Marchant, 2.11
( I say John is the father of Abishai as he is not dead until 1693, and son John b. 1679/80, of Abishai would have been too young.)
