Notes for James Davis:
Accompanying John Davis was James Davis who received a grant at Hampton in 1639 (Joshua Coffin, A Sketch of the History of Newbury, Newburyport and West Newbury, Hampton, N.H., 1977, reprint, pg. 29). That grant was sold on the 17th of August 1648, four years after his removal to Haverhill, MA in May of 1644 (Genealogical Dict. of Maine and New Hampshire). His resettlement was evidently under consideration earlier than 1640 as his name was included in the list of twelve who , around 16540, were in the first company of settlers in the wild wood of Pentucket (later Haverhill) (George Wingate Chase, The history of Haverhill, MA, from its First Settlement in 1540 to the Year 1660, Haverhill, Ma., 1861, pg 88.) While at Hampton, and for many years at Haverhill, Davis was named as the Commissioner to end Small Causes. He was also a grand juryman, representative in 1660 and was often a selectman (Genealogical Dict. of Maine and NH). The name of James Davis was on the Haverhill Record of 1650; a record which evaluated the property of each man and also gave the year in which his name first appeared. In that record, the evaluation of his property was 200 pounds. The larges in value on that list, and the year in which his name first appeared was 1646 (History of Haverhill, pg. 72). Chase, the Haverhill historian, cautioned that the dates and figures should be taken as an approximation. It should be noted that the number of acres of each house lot was dependent upon the number of pounds the settler was worth.
Despite experience with arbitration and legal affairs, the will of James Davis dated the 18th of July 1672, and its codicil, dated 22 July 1676 (Essex probate 7260), provoked a controversy among his children. The codicil named William White and Nathaniel Saltonstall as overseers "To provide that if I outlive the time and money I thought to spend, justice, according to proportion, in my will mentioned, may be done to my eldest son James Davis, and no disposal of any of my estates to be made until that matter be determined by my said overseers or their executors, as to any matter of portion or bequest." In an effort to dispense justice as they were directed, Nathaniel Saltonstall and Wm. White presented their findings to the Court (ibid). The named administrator was the eldest son, James Davis, Jr. As administrator, James was also challenged by his brother Samuel, who came forward with his own claims. Samuel, the youngest son, by depositions which appear in the probate file, undertook the care of his ailing mother during the lifetime of his father. Among those who testified on his behalf regarding the care of this mother were his sister, Sarah (Davis) Page and her husband, John Page, Jr., who deposed that "Our mother Davis did (live) with Samuel Davis about one year when she was very weak and not able to help herself. And to our knowing he was very careful of her and did to his ability what he could for her. As our mother Davis saith unto us" (ibid). Another deponent, Martha Tuxbury, stated that she "did often see his great trouble and care that he had with his mother that he could hardly plan time to go on about his business she being so helpless that his wife was not able alone to do for him what was useful and one time especial at his wife's child bed she fainted away and the old woman was so weak she could not hold the infant but having little help was forced to lie it upon the ground without. (ibid). Samuel evidently submitted charges for the care of his mother against the estate of his father. The response of the father's overseers was very pointed. In their declaration (ibid) they cancelled those "Debtrs defined by them as "work done for their mother, or for any personal service done, which is due from a child to a parent in his old age, not having cleared the account with him [the father] in his life and not judging it rational or being ashamed to demand of their father, which was absolute duty in them to do." That, notwithstanding the fact that the overseers admitted the father was some years in the daily expectation of death. In addition to being denied compensation for the care of his mother, Samuel also lost his attempt to recover lands [40 acres of meadow] which he claimed had been promised by his father upon his death.
