[NOTE: Disputed parentage Some texts say she is the daughter of Rev. George Phillips and Elizabeth Sargent, however several sources listing his children do not include a daughter Hannah. No Hannah accompanied them according to ships list. Not found in his will Robert C. Anderson indicates Hannah is not of Rev. George Philips family. Mary Hovering suggests she may be related to Rev. John Philips of Dedham, but this lineage has not been pursued further. see: Joseph Morse (1613-1654) in: Early New England Families, 1641 – 1700.

Biography

Hannah Philips, of Watertown, married Joseph Morse at Dedham, Massachusetts on September 1, 1638 [1: 7: 1638]. Her parentage and origin has not been determined. [1] [2] Joseph was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth (Jasper) Morse, was baptized at Redgrave, Suffolk, England on May 2, 1613. [1] [2]

  • 1639: November 10: Ann, wife of Joseph Morse, was received into the church at Dedham. [2]
  • 1649: Joseph Morse was a proprietor at Dedham on lands that later became Medfield in 1651. [2]
  • 1654: The Morse family resided at Dorchester or Boston.
  • 1659/60: February 24, Thomas Boyden, Boston carter, and wife Hannah, 7 acres of upland and meadow in Boston to Joshua Scottow. [3]
  • 1661/2: She and husband Thomas were of Medfield. [3]
  • 1661: October 18: Thomas Boyden of Medfied, posted bond of L300, together with the house, upland and meadow now in his possession, inheritance of the late Joseph Morse, and agreed to pay Edward Rawson L 180. [4]
  • 1662: September 12: Thomas and Hannah sold their dwelling house, barn, gardens and orchards in Boston to Simon Lynde. [3]
  • 1665: June 27: The bond agreed to regarding the estate of Joseph Morse, would be void by the courts, if Thomas Boyden met the conditions of the maintenance of the Morse children, including teaching the sons to read and write, and to pay them at age or marriage the sums of inheritance decided by the Court in May 1661. [4]

Her husband Joseph came to New England at the age of 20, on the ship Increase enrolling in London on April 15, 1635, with his father Samuel and mother Elizabeth. [5] [2]

He died by June 20, 1654, likely at Dorchester. [2]

In Joseph father Samuel's will of 2: 10: 1654 [December 2, 1654], the bequests to his wife Elizabeth, were to be divided in equal portions, after her decease to their children, including 'Ann' Morse, wife of his son Joseph, now deceased. [6]

The inventory of the portion of Joseph's estate at Medfield was taken 20: 4: 1654 [June 20, 1654] included a house lot, barn, materials and lands, and a crop of corn was valued at L113; his second division upland at L21 and his meadow at L 40. [2]

His Dorchester holdings were inventoried on 26; 4: 1654 [June 26] included livestock, furnishings and books. The sum total of his estate was L420 3s 6d and was submitted to the court by his widow Hannah on July 25, 1654. [2]

After his death, widow Hannah Morse married second Thomas Boyden at Boston on November 3, 1658, as his second wife. [7] Thomas Boyden was born about 1613, likely in England, and sailed from Ipswich to New England in April, 1634 aboard the ship Francis, first settling at Scituate. [3] He is listed as aged 21 on the passenger list. [8][9]

She and her husband Thomas, appeared in court on more than one occasion regarding the estate settlement and the bringing up of her eight Morse children. Boyden agreed to maintain the children until they come of age, teach them to read and write, and if the boys choose, to select trades. A division of the estate was settled among the heirs, so that each child would receive their portion at age or marriage. [2] [3] [10]

Hannah died at Medfield on October 3, 1676. [11]

She wrote her own will on October 3, 1676 and divided her estate among the eight Morse children, being:

  • sons Samuel, Joseph and Jeremiah Morse
  • daughters Hannah Flood, Sarah Lawrence, Dorcas Clarke, Elizabeth Lawrence and Mary Plimpton. [2] [3]

Thank you. They were set as rejected - but they have the same husband - so if they are not a match - please remove the marriage and clean up the children
