Joseph Warriner

Joseph WARRINER (1645 – 1697) was Alex’s 10th Great Grandfather;  one of 2,048 in this generation of the Miner line.

Joseph Warriner was born 6 Feb 1644/45, in Springfield, Hampden, Mass. His parents were William WARRINER and Joanna SEARLE (Scant). He married Mary MONTAGUE. 25 Nov 1668 in Hadley, Hampshire, Mass.  After Mary died, he married Sarah Tibbals on 15 Jul 1691.  Joseph died 21 April 1697, in Enfield, Hartford, CT.

Mary Montague was born about 1642 in Wells, Maine. Her parents were Richard MONTAGUE and Abigail DOWNING. Mary died 22 July 1689, in Enfield, Hartford, Connecticut.

Sarah Tibbals was born about 1647 in Massachusetts.   Her parents were Thomas Tibbals and [__?__].  She was the widow of Daniel Collins.  After Joseph died, she married a third time to Obadiah Abbe.

Obadiah Abbey was born between 1647 and 1652 in Wenham, Mass.  His father was John Abbey.  Obadiah died 28 Oct 1732 in Enfield, CT.

From the inventory of his father’s estate we learn that Obadiah was apprenticed to Richard Goldsmith to learn his trade of shoemaker, and that he served Goldsmith three years from his eighteenth year. As Goldsmith died in 1673, this places the date of Obadiah’s birth approximately. He was an early settler of Enfield on the eighth lot from the south corner, east side, one of the original proprietors in 1682. He seems to have been a prominent and influential man of the community, was constable between 1682 and 1717, surveyor of highways in 1692, assessor in 1702. In 1685 he was engaged in a law suit with Isaac Meacham. At Northampton is the will of Obadiah Abbey, dated Sep 22, 1732; probated Nov 14, 1732. He names as legatees his wife, Sarah, to whom is given maintenance, all household goods and moveables; his cousin (nephew) Thomas, son of his brother Thomas, to whom is given his Scantic lot, and to the former Thomas’ son, Obadiah, house and land, with reversion to his youngest son, Thomas, if the said Obadiah should die; to the last-named Thomas, he gives farm lands at the Mountains; his wife’s daughter, Phebe Heal; his cousin John Abbey’s oldest son, John. His cousin, Thomas Abbey, and Elizabeth Warriner are made executors. This Elizabeth Warriner was presumably the step-daughter of his wife, who was born in 1686.

Obadiah Abbe’s holdings in Enfield are described in the Enfield records: Home lot of 12 acres; 23 acres in the South Field, eastern division; 7 acres upon Schantuck River, 5 acres of it upland and 2, meadow; 2 acres of meadow upon a small brook easterly from the “grate meadow”; 4 acres of meadow by grant of March 5, 1700; and on November
17, 171[ ], a farm lying west of Schantuck grate meadow” consisting of 68 acres, some of the boundaries of which were designated as Òwht Oak Tree marked with the letters O A” and a “Pine Tree marked with the letters O A.”

History of Nortbfield.

The troops left Hatfield, marched up the west side of the river, crossed the Deerfield and Green rivers, and halted about half a mile from the head of the falls. Leaving their horses a little to the west of Fall river, under a small guard, they climbed an abrupt hill and came upon the back of the camp about daybreak.”They found the Indians secure, yea all asleep without having any scouts abroad ; so that our soldiers came and put their guns into their wigwams,before the Indians were aware of them, and made a great and notable slaughter. Some got out of the wigwams and fought, and killed one of the English ; others did enter the river to swim over from the English, but many were shot dead in the waters, others wounded were therein drowned, many got into canoes to paddle away, but the paddlers being shot, the canoes over set with all therein ; and the stream beingviolent and swift near the falls, most that fell overboard were carriedupon the falls. Others of them creeping for shelter under the banksof the great River, were espied by our men and killed with their swords ; Capt. Holyoke killing five, young and old, with his own hands.'”The victory seemed complete. But just as our troops were about to retire to their horses, a report was started that Philip with a thousand Indians was approaching ; and “a panic terror fell upon many of them, and they hastened homewards in a confused route.” Capt. Turner and 37 of his men were slain — all but one after they left the falls. The loss of the Indians was much greater. Menowniet testified that 40 Norwottucks (meaning River Indians) and Quaboags,and 10 Narragansetts were slain at the falls. This included only warriors, and was probably 10 below the actual loss. The number of women and children, shot in the wigwams, and destroyed in the attempt to cross the river was estimated as high as 150. Mr. Judd, who carefully analyzed the facts, concludes that “180 Indians, old and young, perished at the falls that morning.” It was their heaviest loss in any action during the war, in these parts : and one from which they never recovered.

Of the men, directly connected with Northfield history, in this fight, were Nathaniel Alexander, James Bennett, Philip Mattoon, Joseph Kellogg, Samuel Boltwood, Stephen Belding, William CLARKE, John Lyman, Cornelius Merry, and  Joseph WARRINER.

In 1736, the General court granted to the survivors of this fight, and their descendants, a township,which in commemoration of the event was named Fall-town, since incorporated under the name of Bernardston.  Bernardston was first settled in 1738 as a part of “Fall Town,” which also included Colrain and Leyden.
