Henry Lancaster I

Henry LANCASTER I (1605 – 1705) was Alex’s 10th Great Grandfather, one of 2,048 in this generation of the Shaw line.

Immigrant Ancestor

Henry Lancaster (Langstar, Langstaff, Lankester) was baptized 20 Apr 1605 in Woodplumpton,   City of Preston, Lancashire, England.  His parents were Edward LANGSTAFF b. 1580 Lathbury Parish, Buckinghamshire, England and Elizabeth COLLINS. He married Sarah [__?__] in England.

Henry was in Portsmouth, New Hampshire 1630/31, sent by Captain John Mason.  In 1622, Mason and Sir Ferdinando Gorges received a patent from the Council for New England for all the territory lying between the Merrimack and Kennebec rivers.  In 1629 they divided the grant along the Piscataqua River, with Mason receiving the southern portion.  The colony was recharted as the Province of New Hampshire. It included most of the southeastern part of the current state of New Hampshire, as well as portions of present-day Massachusetts north of the Merrimack.

Henry married Josephine Knight in 1637 in New Hampshire.  He was in Dover by 1648.  Henry died 18 Jul 1705 in Dover, New Hampshire.  Death was by injury 10 days after an accidental fall. “After ten days iIlness, about 100 years old, a hale, strong, hearty man” he died as a result of a fall.  One record states that he fell into his lean-to, causing bruises and later inflammation. Another record, which seems to be  the more popular one, states that he fell from his horse, He is buried at Bloody Point, as is his wife, Lora.

Henry Lancaster was baptized in St Anne’s Church, Woodplumpton, Lancashire, England

Sarah [__?__] was born in 1605 in England. Sarah died about 1637, perhaps during Joseph’s childbirth.

Josephine Knight was born 1616 in England.  Her parents were William Knight and Martha Williams.  Josephine died 28 May 1690  or Jul 1705 in Dover, Strafford, New Hampshire.

In a deposition dated 1682, Henry Langstar (Lancaster), of Dover, testified that he knew Thomas Walford, of Portsmouth, fifty years before, which would indicate that 1632 was the year of his removal.

Newington, Rockingham, NH

By 1631, Henry was settled on a promontory near the mouth of the Piscataqua River called “Bloody Point.  Henry’s homestead is in today’s Newington, New Hampshire,  a town in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 753 at the 2010 census.   It is bounded to the west by Great Bay, northwest by Little Bay and northeast by the Piscataqua River. It is home to Portsmouth International Airport at Pease (formerly Pease Air Force Base), and to the New Hampshire National Guard. The 110-acre Old Town Center Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Originally a part of Dover, boundary disputes among early river settlers caused this area to be called Bloody Point.  By 1640, Trickey’s Ferry operated between Bloody Point and Hilton’s Point in Dover. [named for our ancestor William HILTON and his brother Edward]  In 1712, the meetinghouse was erected and the parish set off, named Newington for an English village, whose residents sent the bell for the meetinghouse. Behind the meetinghouse is a row of horse sheds, once commonplace but now rare. About 1725 the parsonage was built near the Town Forest, considered one of the oldest in the America. The town would be incorporated in 1764 by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth. In 1794, a bridge was completed across Little Bay from Fox Point in Newington to the south bank of the Bellamy River in Dover, by way of Goat Island—a major engineering feat in its day.

Langstaffe’s Garrison.

This garrison is mentioned by Major Pike as attacked in 1689.  It stood on Bloody Point itself, which seems to have verified its name if credit is to be given to a tradition that many people lie buried here who were massacred by the Indians. It was built by Henry Laugstaffe or Langstar, who was one of the colonists sent over by Capt. John Mason in 1631. The Rev. John Pike, in his Journal, records the death of Henry Langstar at Bloody Point, July 18, 1705, at the age of about 100 years, ” from a fall down four steps into his Lean- to.”

The Langstar homestead is mentioned Nov. 23, 1716, when Henry Langstar of Piscataqua, New Jersey, attorney of his father John Langstar, conveyed to John Shackford one half of the homestead at Bloody Point, on the west side of the Piscataqua river — then in possession of Henry Langstar, son of Henry Langstar, deceased — bounded south by Capt. John Knight’s land, formerly Benjamin Bickford’s, west by ye highway leading to ye ferry, and so bounded upon ye land formerly George Braun’s down to ye river, thence upon ye river to said Knight’s, where we first began.

Dumpling Cove (Map)

This cove is on the Newington shore of Little Bay, at the lower side of Dame’s Pt., now Joshua’s Pt. It is mentioned the 11th, 10mo., 1656, when Richard Catter’s (Carter’s) grant of 40 acres of upland in 1652, was laid out “south of the freshett at Dompline Cove,” bounded north by Henry Lankstar’s land, and south by that of John Dam.

Henry Langstar’s grant of 200 acres in 1652 was laid out in 1659, “beginning at Doempling Cove in the letell Bay, and so up the freshett to the parting of it,” thenceover to “the freshett that goeth into the broad cove below foxe poynt, thence over the mouth of the crike to a maple tree, thence to the north sideof a little swamp, thence to a Rock a little below terning Poynt, and up the little bay to doompline Cove.” Henry Langstar, Oct. 27, 1704 conveyed to his daughter Mary all his land on Little Bay, beginning at the mouth of acreek in Broad Cove, and running up Little Bay as far as Dumpling Cove, to the southwest side of the freshet; which land was granted said Henry Langstar the 9th, 5 mo. 1652.

Dumpling Cove –  Sarah Levett, “widow and relict of James Levett, ” conveyed to Joseph Adams, “preacher of the Gospel,” March 15, 1721, a tract of 40 acres, “bounded somewhat northerly on ye lands that were formerly old Mr. Langstar’s, now in ye possession of Mr. Eleazar Coleman [son of Tobias COLEMAN], somewhat westerly on ye river that runs into ye Great Bay, somewhat southerly by the lands of Mr. John Dam, and somewhat easterly by the lands of said Adams;” –the land thus bounded being “at or near a place called Dumpling Cove, and formerly granted by the town of Dover to one Richard Cater” (Carter.)

Joseph Adams of Newington, Dec. 18, 1783, conveyed to John Gee Pickering 20 acres of land in Newington, “supposed to be half of the farm where said Adams then lived,” beginning at Joseph Dame’s land, and running along Little Bay to the land of James Coleman. This land is now owned by Mr. Gee Pickering of Portsmouth, and the Dame land adjoining by the heirs of Mr. Joshua Pickering.

Dumpling cove is sometimes called Sow-Pit cove, probably a corruption of Sow and Pigs, a name given to a cluster of rocks in the river near this cove.

Eel-Pot Creek.  – This creek runs through the land of Mr. Rufus W. Weeks of Greenland, and empties into the Great Bay, about fifty rods above the mouth of Winnicot river. It is mentioned Nov. 22, 1716, when Henry Langstar, of Piscataqua, New Jersey, by virtue of a power of attorney from his father John Langstar, son of Henry Langstar (otherwise Langstaffe) of Dover, deceased, conveyed to Henry Nutter a tract of 20 acres in Portsmouth, on ye westernmost side of Greenland river, in ye Great Bay, bounded upon Ealpole creek.

Fresh Creek. – This stream is a tributary of the Cochecho river, into which it empties on the east side, not far above the mouth. It is mentioned in the Dover records as early as 1648. The mill privilege on this creek was granted the 5th, 10 mo., 1652, to Wm. Furber, Wm. Wentworth, Henry Langstar and Thomas Canney, together with the timber ” from the head of tidewater three miles up into the woods betwixt the tivo freshets, the southernmost freshett coming out of the marsh beside the Great hill at Cochecho, the northernmost freshett bounding Capt. Wiggins and JVP broadstreet’s grant at Quomphegan,” etc. {N. H. Toiun Pap., XI: 530.) Henry Tibbets, June 29, 1713, conveyed to John Drew, Sr., one half of the mill privilege at the head of Fresh creek, and half of his labor in building the sawmill there, with the privilege of erecting a dam for the convenience of said mill, together with land for a log hill. This fall was within the line of Samuel Croumel’s (Cromwell’s) land, near ye place where Joshua Croumel’s house formerly stood.

Hilton’s Cove.  – This cove is on the Newington shore, adjoining the old terminus of Knight’s ferry, but the name is no longer in use. It is mentioned the 9th, 5 mo., 1652, when John Hall had a grant of 18 acres ” a little above Hilton’s Cove.” It is again mentioned the 5th, 10 mo., 1674, when Thomas Tricke’s grant of 18 acres in 1656, ” on Bloody poynt side,” was laid out ” aboue hilltones, joining to henery Lankster his land westerly, bounded up the gutt to a rock, and from the rock to A wall nutt Tree marked with an H and a T, and soe to a Beich Tree marked with A and T, and so to the freshett that runs in too Thomas Trickey his coue aboue his hotise at high-water mark.”

John Hall conveyed to Henry Langstaffe, the 1st, 4 mo., 1668, 12 acres of land granted him by the town of Dover, together with house, goods, and chattels within doors and without. Henry Langstar, grandson of the above Henry, conveyed to John Shackford, Nov. 23, 1716, ten acres of land called Hall’s field., bounded N. W. by a little meadow, W. by land formerly Zachariah Trickey’s but then in possession of Capt. John Knight, and E. by the highway to the ferry. George Walton and Frances conveyed to John Knight, Feb. 27, 1718-19, ten acres of land “in ye town of Newington,” bounded north- westerly by land formerly Zachariah Trickey’s, then ye said Knight’s, and easterly by the highway from the ferry to the meeting-house — ” which ffield is called Hall’s ffield, and formerly belonged to Henry Langstaff deceased.”

John Knight, Sr., and wife Bridget, conveyed to their son John, Feb. 7, 1717/18, a tract of 18 acres at Bloody Point, bought of Zachary Trickey, bounded N. W. by the main river, east by John Hoyt’s land (previously Geo. Brawn’s), south by the Bloody Point highway to Nutter’s, and west by Ephraim Trickey’s laud, — together with the dwelling-house, and all interest in the ferry at Bloody Poynt.

Hilton’s Point –  This name was given for more than a century to the lower extremity of Dover Neck, from Edward Hilton brother of William HILTON who founded a settlement here as early as 1623, that proved, however, unsuccessful. It is so called March 12, 1629-30, in the new patent he obtained from the Plymouth Council. He afterwards settled in Exeter, but this point continued to bear his name till the second half of the 18th century.  The Dover records make mention of it repeatedly. It is so called by Robert Mason in 1681. Thomas Mason of Dover, trader, and Magdalen his wife, Sept. 13, 1733, conveyed to John Wheelwright and others, of Boston, merchants, his dwellinghouse on Dover Neck, ” on the westerly side of the road that leads down to Hilton’s Point, commonly so called,” together with the laud adjacent. It is now called Dover Point. (See Wecanacohimt.)

Hilton’s Point Ferry –  Mentioned Sept. 4, 1766, when Ephraim and Hannah Tibbets conveyed to Job Clement 12^ acres ” on Dover Neck the westerly side of the road to Hilton’s Point ferry, so called,” extending to the upper side of the way that leads to Hall’s sli}) on Back river. This was the ferry from Hilton’s Point to Newington, generally called Knight’s ferry .

Hilton’s Point Swamp –  Mentioned in 1652, when this swamp was laid out as an ox pasture. Humphrey Varney conveyed to John Knight, Nov. 8, 1711, his share in the ox pasture “granted him in Hiton’s Point swamp at ye loer end of

Dover Neck — “The ox pasture in Hilton’s Point sivamp ” is again mentioned in Judge Johu Tuttle’s will of Dec. 28, 1717. Joseph Hall of Newmarket conveyed to Thomas Millet, Feb. 11, 1736, two tracts of land in Dover; “one known by ye name of ye Swamp or Ox common, and called by some Hilton’s Point; ” — ” ye other known by ye name of ye Calves Pasture.” These lots were originally laid out to ” Lt. Ralph Hall,” grandfather of said Joseph. This swamp is now called Huckleberry Swamp.

Langstaffe Rocks –  These rocks are in the Pascataqua river, off the Newington shore below Bloody Pt. They are hidden beneath the current, and are carefully avoided by boatmen, for more than one schooner has been driven thereon and wrecked. The name is derived from Henry Langstaffe or Langstar, who acquired land on the neighboring shore as early as 1652.

Rocky Point –  This point is on the shore of Broad Cove, Newington, between Fox Pt. and Stephen’s Pt., now Bean’s. It is a mere ledge projecting from the shore, but apparently separated from it at high tide, and generally called Carter’s Rocks. It is mentioned Apr. 9, 1702, when thirty acres of land were laid out to Mr.Nicholas Harrison ” on bloody poynt side, in Dover, beginning at Rockey poynt, att henry Langstar’s land, and so by the water side 21 rods upon an east line, thence on a south line to Joshua Crockett’s land 116 rods, and so to henry Langstar’s land on a west line 39 rods, and so to Rockey poynt where we began.”

Also 9 or 10 acres on the south side of the highwavthat leads from Broad Cove to the plains, etc. (See Carter’s Rocks.) Joseph W. Pickering, administrator of the estate of Eleazar Coleman, conveyed to Cyrus Frink, Dec. 4, 1831, 48 acres of land in Newington, beginning at Rocky Point, so called, and running thence to the northwestward of the grist-mill, thence as the creek runs to the middle of the cider-house, etc., together with the t house, grist-mill, and alt privileges. Mention is made of John Shackford’s land at the S. E.

A Rocky Point is mentioned July 17, 1660, when it was agreed by the Dover authorities ” that the house of Mr. Valentine Hill, which is his now dwelling at Rocky Point, shall be within tiie line of deuetion to Oyster River.” This point may have been on the Durham shore, where Valentine Hill owned several large tracts of land. If he owned land on the Newington shore, it must have been re-granted after his death. The line of division between the Oyster River precinct (now Durham) and Dover proper, is thus stated in the Dover records, the 21st., 10 mo., 1657: “The bounds of the inhabetance of oyster Reiver for the acomodating Q of the ministerv is the inhabitants that are or shall be scittuated from the next Rocky poynt on the north side below the mouth of the sayd River and from there by a straight line to the head of Tho Johnson’s Creek to the Path thear, and from theare by a west line to the end of the Towne bounds. As allso all the inhabetantes on the south side of that line that either are or shall be thear scittuated are likewise to pay to the ministry there, excepting all the Inhabitants on fox poynt side that are or shall be in the letell Bay.” Tliis last sentence seems to imply that the Bloody Point district from Fox Pt. up Little Bay then belonged to the Oyster River precinct for civil, if not for ecclesiastical, purposes. In that case, Valentine Hill’s house, if at Rocky Pt. on the lower side of Fox Point, could have been easily included within the above-mentioned line of division.

Starbuck’s Point and Marsh. Starbuck’s Point, now called Fabyan’s Pt, is on the Newington shore of the Great Bay, where Edward STARBUCK of Dover had a grant of marsh in 1643, (see Swadden’s  Creek) ; and later, a grant of upland adjoining. His son-in-law Peter Coffin conveyed to John Hall of Greenland a tract of upland on the southeast side of Great Bay, “formerly the land of Edward Starbuck,” possession of which was given “with twigg and turf,” Dec. 25, 1662. John Atkinson conveyed to Thomas Pickering, Dec. 7, 1702, 13 acres of land granted to his father Joseph Atkinson by the town of Portsmouth, bounded S. by ” Swaden’s brook;” S. W. by the bay, and on the other sides by ” Starbuck’s mash,” and the lands of Jackson, Geo. Walton, and said Thomas Pickering. Starbuck’s Point and marsh are again mentioned Jan. 28, 1716, in a conveyance, beginning in solemn form as follows :

“To all Christian People to whom this my present deed of gift shall come and concern, know ye that I, Thomas Pickering of Portsmouth, in the province of New Hampshire, sendeth greeting in our Lord God everlasting.” Said Thomas then goes on to say that, ” out of natural love and affection to his well-beloved son James, for his incouragement,” he conveys to him the full half of a marsh called and known by the name of Starbuck’s Poynt Marsh, together with a tract of land, adjoining the land whereon said Thomas then lived, bounded northerly by John Fabin’s land and the country road, south by Swadden’s brook, and extending to the Great Bay ; said Thomas reserving; the riwht to drive his cattle back and forth to Starbuck’s Point. John Fabins (Fabyan) of Newington, May 30, 1721, conveyed to James Pickerins; all right to the southeast half of the salt marsh, formerly called Starbuck’s marsh, adjoining said Pickering’s own land, (Fabiyan’s Point.)

Stephen’s Point  – This point is on the Newington shore, at the lower side of Broad Cove. The name was derived from Stephen Teddar, who belonged to the Dover Combination of 1640, and seems to have lived on this shore at an early day.  William Furber and Anthony Nutter were appointed by the town of Dover the 5th, 2 mo., 1652, to lay out Henry Langstaffe’s lot of 200 acres “where Stephen Teddar’ s house was.” This order was repeated the 5th, 2 mo., 1658.

Langstaffe had another grant the 9th, 5 mo., 1652, ” near where Stephen Teddar’s house was.” Mention is also made of Langstar’s land laid out at Stephen’s marsh Ap. 11, 1694. (Dover Records.) Stephen’s Point is mentioned June 6, 1701, when a road was proposed ” from Mr. Harrison’s (at Fox Point) to Broad Cove freshett, and so to the highway from Bloody poynt road to Stephens poynt or broad cove,” as should be thought fit. And again Sept. 8, 1703, when Henry Langstar or Langstaffe, conveyed to his daughter Mary fifty acres of land ” a little above Bloody Point, commonly called by the name of Stephen’s point, otherwise Stephen Jethro’s point formerly, right over against Hilton’s Point,” bounded east by land that was formerly Joseph Trickey’s, and west by a cove commonly called Broad Cove.

Children

1. Mary Langstar

Mary’s husband Eleazar Coleman was born about 1677 in Rowley or Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.  His parents were Tobias COLEMAN and Lydia JACKSON.  After Mary died, he married 1 Mar 1716/17 Newington, NH to Anne Nutter

The next transfer of this land reveals a curious bit of family history, well worth copying from the County records : ” Mary Langstar of Bloody Point, June 20, 1713, well knowing that a marriage by God’s grace is intended and shortly to be had and solemnized between Eleazar Coleman \of said place to the said Mary Langstar, and considering that said Mary, being about ye age of 63 years, and the said Eleazar about 28 years, and she may the better be taken care of in case she lives to any great age, and for divers other good and just causes, conveys to him fifty acres of upland called Steven’s Point, otherwise by ye name of Stephen Jether’s point, a little above Bloody point, right east by Broad cove. Also land on Little Bay, beginning by a creek in Broad cove, and running up ye Little bay as far as Dumplin cove.”

That Mary Langstar married Eleazar Coleman is proved by a deed of May 25, 1734, by which John Johnson conveyed to Samuel Nutter 5 acres and 50 rods of land in Greenland, which Matthew Haines and Nathan Johnson had bought of Mr. Eleazar Coleman, having been ” given by Mr. Henry Langstar, late of Dover, deceased, to his daughter Mary Langstar, who was wife to said Eleazar Coleman.” Eleazar Coleman, and Mary his wife, March 6, 1713/14, ^ conveyed to Richard Downing and Thomas Coleman of Newbury Falls, 50 acres of land in Newington, at a place commonly called Stephen’s Point, otherwise Stephen Jether’s Point formerly, lying a little above Bloody Point, right over against Hilton’s Point, bounded east by Jos. Trickey’s land, and on ye west by Broad Cove. Also, the land from the mouth of the creek in Broad Cove up Little Bay as far as Dumpling Cove.

The Langstars laid claim to Mrs. Coleman’s estate after her death, and still spoke of her as “Mary Langstar,” but finally her nephew Heur}’, attorney of his father, John Langstar, of the town of Piscataqua, Middlesex county, New Jersey, resigned to Eleazar Coleman Nov. 26, 1716, all claim to the lands given the latter by his aunt, Mary Langstar, deceased.

3. Joseph LANCASTER (See his page)

4. Sarah Lancaster

Sarah’s husband Anthony Nutter was born 1631 in Fillongley, Warwickshire, England. His parents were Elder Hatevil Nutter and Anne [__?__]. He died 19 Feb 1686 in Dover, Strafford, New Hampshire.

5. John Lancaster

John’s wife Martha Martin was born in Dover, New Hampshire circa 1648. Her parents were John Martin and Esther Roberts. Martha died 13 Nov 1694 in Piscataway, Middlesex County, New Jersey at 46 years of age.

1673, commissioned “Ensign” in the militia officers.

He and Elizabeth Fitz-Randolph had a child out of wedlock. In 1673 John Langstaff gave bond on June 11 for holding harmless the township of Piscataway from the charge of maintaining a child of which Elizabeth Fitz-Randolph of said township accuses him to be the father.”

By 1638, Cromwell and his Puritans had become very influential in the English Parliament. One of the things they did, we are told was to  encourage the State of Massachusetts to persuade the Puritan colonists to move north to the Piscataqua Riverarea. Because of Cromwell’s influence, these colonists were able to extend their land claims to take precedence over the Mason grants which had been issued by James I. The Mason group, all loyal Anglican churchmen, could do littleto prevent the encroachment
of the Puritans.

When Charles II was restored to the throne of England in 1660 following the end of the English Civil Was, the original Mason grants were reasserted. Thus in 1665, a grievance was issued by the Dover Select Men regarding their territorial rights. The petition was signed (quote) “Richard Waldron, Henry Langstaff, John Davis, John Roberts”. Meanwhile, during that same year 1665, the agents of Governor Philip Carteret of New Jersey arrived in Dover with concessions inviting the settlers of the Piscataqua River area to move south to New Jersey. Keeping in mind the uncertainstate of their Dover land claims, which were not yet stabilized after the Puritan invasion, Henry’s sons, Henry and John, decided to take advantage of Carteret’s offer and move to New Jersey. Henry, however, continued to live in his house at Bloody Point.
