Biography

Joseph Joslin Josselyn was born on 26 Jul 1663 in Lancaster, Worcester, Massachusetts to Abraham Joslyn and Beatrice Hampson. [1]

Life Sketch

Joseph Joslin Josselyn was elected Selectman in 1719 in Abington, Massachusetts..[2]

Marriages

He married, first, Hannah (Farrow) Josselyn 17 Mar 1687.[3]

Issue:

  1. Hannah (Josselyn) Joy[4]

He married, secondly, Sarah (Ford) Josselyn, daughter of Andrew Foorde and Elinor Lovell, on 05 Mar 1702 in Bridgewater, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[5][6]

Issue:

  1. Sarah (Josselyn) Porter on 22 Jan 1703 in Bridgewater, Plymouth, Massachusetts.[7] She died about 1763 in Bridgewater, Plymouth, Massachusetts. She married Samuel Porter on 02 Jul 1722 in Abington, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Death

He died on 05 Sep 1726 in Abington, Plymouth, Massachusetts and was buried in Bridgewater.[8]

Probate

Appointment of Joseph's widow, Sarah, as administrator of his estate, dated 21 Nov 1726, in accordance with the terms of Joseph's Will: Plymouth County, MA: Probate File Papers, 1686-1881, #11677 (accessed 19 May 2018).

Last Will and Testament, dated 28 Jul 1726: Plymouth County, MA: Probate File Papers, 1686-1881, #11677 (accessed 19 May 2018).

Sarah, his widow, to receive all the income ("improvements") from his estate until his youngest son, Abraham, reaches the age of 21, unless she remarried. In that case, she would receive one-third of the income from the estate for her lifetime. If she remained his widow, after Abraham reached the age of 21, he and his brother, Ebenezer, would receive the entirety of the estate's income and be obliged to support their mother, who would retain the right to live in the house and have the proceeds from one-quarter of his orchard. She also was to receive all his personal estate (except what he had before their marriage) for her lifetime. If she died before Abraham reached 21, then the two sons would receive the benefit of the entire income from the estate until they each reached 21.

His eldest son, Joseph, has evidently left home. His inheritance (land, £30, and one-third of his father's commons rights) depends on his returning. In the event he does not return, Ebenezer and Abraham receive his portion of lands and commons rights, while the £30 is to be split between his four daughters: Hannah Joslen, [Beatres ?] Joslen, Mary Bute, Sarah Porter. The reason he does not give his eldest son, Joseph, more of his estate is that a great part of it came to him through his present wife.

Witnesses: [Mattsen ?] Pratt, Sam'll Brown and Mary Brown
