  • Source: SR4 Title: "A Sketch of the Eliot Family" Abbreviation: "A Sketch of the Eliot Family" Author: Walter Graeme Eliot Publication: Press of Livingston Middleditch CONT 26 Cortland St., New York CONT 1887 Text: COKER CONT CONT Nestled among the hills and meadows of the heart of Somersetshire, the garden spot of England, is the little hamlet of East Coker, three or four miles SW from Yeovil, on the London & Southwestern Railway. Here, almost under the shadows of afine old parish church, dating back to the fifteenth century, was the home for a century or more of the Eliot family previous to their departure for America and religious liberty. CONT Less than one hundred miles away in Cornwall is yet to be found the seat of a powerful family of the name, resident there since 1400, and flourishing previously for several centuries in the neighboring county of Devonshire. CONT In 1538 there was passed in England a law compelling every parish to keep a complete record of baptisms, marriages and burials. It appears to have gone into effect with more or less force between 1540 and 1550, and to have shown itself assoon in Devon, conrwall and Somerset, as in any other part of the kingdom. It is, therefore, not remarkable that we at once find record of the Eliots in E. Coker Somersetshire. CONT Being members of the Established Church of England at the period of Cromwell's accession to power, and when Roundhead intolerance became as opressive as had previously been the Romish influence, it would not be surprising if the Eliots hadfound emigration to this country as necessary as the thousands of others who flocked to the neighboring ports of departure, Plymouth, Bristol, &c., to seek a more congenial home in America. CONT They were well educated, highly respected, well-to-do members of the landed gentry of the shire, and certainly well connected. They had been seated in the county for 100 years or more before the departure of the first of the line for thecolony of Massachusetts Bay.
