Anthony PERRY (1624 – 1683) was Alex’s 10th Great Grandfather, one of 2,048 in this generation of the Shaw line.

Anthony Perry was born in 1624 in Devonshire, England. His parents were Edmond PERRY and Sarah CROWELL.  He immigrated with his parents to Plymouth Colony (Sandwich) in 1637 or on the Lion in 1639.   He married Elizabeth [__?_] about 1647.  Anthony died 1 Mar 1682/83 in Rehoboth, Mass.

Elizabeth was born about 1626.  Elizabeth died on 14 May 1703.

2. Elizabeth Perry

Elizabeth’s husband is sometimes called Stephen Burpee  (of Burpee Seed fame) b. 1647 band other times Stephen Bruff  born before 1653 – Marshfield, Plymouth, Mass. The marriage is recorded as Steven Burph.   His parents were Edmund Bruff and Mary Chandler. Stephen died before 21 Jan 1719.

3. Jasiel Perry

Jasiel died in Sep 1676 and was a soldier in King Philip’s War.  So far I have not found a specific record of his death. The fighting had ended by then, so maybe Jasiel died of his wounds.

Private Soldiers – The History of Rehoboth by Leonard Bliss, page 117, says, “The names of the Rehoboth soldiers who served in Philip’s war have been preserved, and are as follows:” Those engaged in the Narraganset expedition were, John Fitch, Jonathan Wilmarth, Jasiel Perry, Thomas Kendrick, Jonathan Sabin, John Carpenter, John Redeway, John Martin, John Hall, John Miller, Jun., John Ide, Joseph Doggett, Sampson Mason, Jun. “Those who served under Major Bradford were, Preserved Abell, Samuell Perry, Stephen Paine, Jun., Samuel Miller, Silas T. Alin, Samuel Palmer, James Redeway, Enoch Hunt, Samuel Walker, Nicholas Ide, Noah Mason, Samuel Sabin, Thomas Read, Israel Read, George Robinson, Nathaniel Wilmarth.”

4. Mercy Perry

Mercy’s husband Thomas Kendrick was born 23 Jan 1646/47 Rehoboth, Mass. His parents were George Kendrick and Ruth Bowen.

1668 – He and his brother-in-law were elected constables for one year. “Att the General Court of Elections held att Plymouth the third Day of June, Anno Dom 1668, Prence Gour, Constables of Rehoboth– Robert ffuller George Kendricke” Constables kept the peace, made arrests, served warrants, and among other popular activities, collected taxes.   Their duties included keeping the peace, making arrests, serving warrants, and the collection of taxes. Since there was very little cash in those days they were required to accept payment in produce at rates set by the town council. The handling of such produce made the collection of taxes an arduous task.

1675/76 – George Kendrick, advanced £11 s.13 d.01  to help pay for King Philip’s War. It appears his aunt  Sarah Bowen was killed by Indians as part of King Philip’s War, and her daughter Abigail may have died then as well.
