Biography

The Honorable Edmund Quincy (1681-1738) was a Harvard graduate (1699) and a judge on the Supreme Court of Massachusetts for 20 years.

Edmund Quincy III married Dorothy Flynt, and with her had four children: two boys, two girls. The first son, also named Edmund, became a Justice of the Peace, and his daughter Dorothy Quincy (granddaughter of Edmund Quincy III) married the famous John Hancock.

In 1737, when a dispute arose over the border between Massachusetts and New Hampshire, he left New England for London as a representative for his state. While in London, he caught smallpox, and perished in 1738.

Through his father's first wife Joanna Hoar and her son Daniel Quincy, the Hon. Edmund was a great-great-great-uncle to America's second president, John Adams.
