PLAC Baptisedfrom: THIS NEW MAN, THE AMERICAN; The Beginnings of the American People by John C. Miller, Stanford University. McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1974.
Wives and often mothers in early puberty, colonial women were launched upon a career of almost continuous childbearing. Ten or twelve children were not uncommon for a colonial family, and the arrival of an addition to the family was almos
t an annual event. Benjamin Franklin came from a family of 17 children; William Rawson had 20 children by one wife; and Sir William Phips was one of 26 children, all from the same mother........ under such a regimen of breeding, many
wives died prematurely, in which case the bereaved husband usually remarried promptly and began another family. Since three or four marriages in a lifetime were not uncommon, the house was seldom free of children. Even the repose of patr
iarchs was disturbed by the patter of tiny feet, and in the mourners' train toddled infants of the deceased's own begetting. The life span in colonial America was usually short, but Americans managed to cram a great deal of living into it
. As a result of early marriages combined with remarkable fecundity, those who attained old age numbered their decendants by scores and even by hundreds. One patriarch who died in 1768 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, left 120 children, gra
ndchildren, and great-grandchildren. But this was by no means the record. In 1739, a Rhode Island woman left 205 descendants alive, and in 1742, a woman died in New England having blessed the community with 260 offspring, including 12 gr
eat-great-grandchildren...............................................
He was the third son of Edward, was educated to a mercantile life, and became a prominent merchant and an importer of foreign goods. Up to the time of his marriage, in 1673, he resided with his father in Rawson's Lane, now Bromfield Stree
t, Boston, where he kept a dry goods store. At the age of 22 years he married to Anne Glover, only daughter of Mr. Nathaniel and Mary (Smith) Glover of Dorchester, MA, as the following certificate, copied from the ancient Bible, will show
: -
"This may certify all whomsoever it may concerne, that on ye 11th day of July, 1673, on a certificate I received, that William Rawson and Ann Glover, ye daughter of ye late Mr. Nathaniel Glover, had been duly and legally published, I joine
d them in marriage at the house and in the presence of Mr. Habackuk Glover, his wife, Mr. Edward Edward Rawson, father of ye son William Rawson, and other friends. As witness my hand, this 31st of July, 1673."Edward Tyng, Ass't.
William resided in Boston a number of years after his marriage. The births of ten of his children are recorded there. All twenty childdren are recorded in the ancient family Bible which is in the possession of New England Historical Soc
iety Library in Boston. He moved to Dorchester, where, according to the records of that town, two of his children were born, and from there to Braintree, now Quincy, to the ancient Rawson farm, which he purchased of the immediate descend
ants of the Rev. John Wilson of Boston, his great uncle. The farm is a part of a large tract granted by the General Court to the Rev. John Wilson, "including a large portion of what is now called the North School District of Quincy." It
is situated near Neponset village and was descended to the fifth generation. The estate was next to that of the Hon. Josiah Quincy. There is a street named Rawson Road running parallel with Hancock Street. This is the location on Willi
am's old homestead. it was passed down to succeeding generations. It was passed to his son, Jonathan in 1760, Jonathan Jr. in 1782, and Samuel (Jonathan Jr.'s son) in 1819. William Rawson owned and operated the first trading post in Bos
ton. While in Boston, records of the First Church in Boston show that William and Anne were recieved and admitted to that church on Feb. 27, 1676. Accounts say that William was very noble, religous and a wealthy man.
from NE Historical Gen. Register, Vol. 3, 38.
William was elected Representative in 1695, constable in 1698, surveyor of highways in 1700, commissioner in 1703, surveyor in 1705, selectman in 1706, moderator in 1708, surveyor in 1713, and surveyor in 1715. He was a dry goods merchant
(importer of goods) and ship owner of Boston, MA...................................................
from Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, page 561.
William Rawson, eldest son in 1676, age 26 in 1678 was defense in a suit brought by William Rawson in Suff. Court on July, 1678. John Broughton was the defense in another Rawson suit. In 1681 in Maine, he sued George Broughton for knocki
