Philip Call I

Philip CALL I (1627 – 1662) was Alex’s  10th Great Grandfather; one of 2,048  in this generation of the Shaw line.

Phillip Call was born  in 1627, in Faversham, Hernhill, Kent, England.   His uncle Thomas CALL. arrived in America with his aunt and uncle in 1637 on “Hercules” and first lived in Charlestown, Mass near the ferry in Charlestown, on the Mystic side. Philip’s arrival is not known, though he may have moved to Malden in 1649 when he was 22 years old.  He married Mary SMITH in 1659 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass.  Philip died in 1662 in Ipswich, Mass.

There is an inference from the language of a deed, dated April 9, 1658, from Philip’s father-in-law, Richard Smith, to his son Richard, of Ipswich, singleman, who is “to pay on Nov. 1, 1658, to his brother-in-law Phillip Call, of Shropham, co. Norfolk, England, at the now dwelling house of the *tfd Richard in Ipswich.” Perhaps Philip Call came over In the summer of 1658, and brought the deed with him.

Mary Smith was born 1630 in Shropham, Norfolk, England.  Her father was Richard SMITH of Shropham, Norfolk, England.   After Phillip died, she married John Burr in 1665 in Ipswich, Mass.  Next she married Henry BENNETT [who I previously thought was our ancestor, but it turns out he wasn’t]  on 18 Feb 1679 in Ipswich, Mass.  Mary died 12 Jan 1708 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass.

John Burr was born in 1644 in England.  He was only 21 years old when he married Mary.  John died  22 Apr 1673 in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts, United States

Henry Bennett was born about 1629 in England.   He died after 3 Oct 1709.  He married first Lydia Perkins by about 1651.   Henry was usually styled “Farmer Bennet”.  He bought a 200-acre farm in Ipswich in 1654.    In 1698 Henry sold his farm to John Wainwright.  In 1666 Henry was a signatory to the Ipswich petition to the General Court disapproving of the action of the Massachusetts authorities in opposing the King’s commissioners.  He was on an 18 Feb 1678 list of commoners in Ipswich.  He appears to have had little interest in public life and never appears to have held office.

Philip was a tilemaker, a baker or a cordwainer.

Cordwainer Philip Call House in Ipswich, Mass

This important First Period house was built by cordwainer Philip Call about 1659. The evolution of this property to its current twelve rooms is an outstanding example of careful adaption of various periods over four generations. Appearing as an old Victorian when purchased by the current owners in 1967, its careful restoration uncovered such important elements as an outstanding chamfered 17th century summer beam, that defines the original 2 112 story house, first enlarged around 1725. Restoration also discovered 17th century field paneling behind new walls, and one of the last remaining three hole privies in Ipswich. The contemporary kitchen overlooks a formal boxwood garden.

The town of Ipswich has more existing 17th Century houses than any other, including Philip Call’s.  Philip Call owned a house on this lot in 1659, and, by the deed of Woodam to Brown of the adjoining lot, in 1663, he was still in possession. Brown’s deed of the abutting lot to Paine, gives the owner of this lot as Philip Call’s widow, Mary, then the wife of Henry Bennet. Nathaniel Lord sold this lot to his son-in-law, Joseph Bolles, March 29, 1710. Bolles also bought of Joseph Fowler, owner of the abutting lot, a house and an acre of land, March 5, 1722. Charles Bolles sold his grandson, John Manning 3d, surgeon, an acre and house, bounded by Nathaniel Lord east, and Capt. Ebenezer Lord west, the estate of his deceased father, Jan. 16, 1786. Dr. Manning sold the western part of the lot with ahouse,that he probably built, to Daniel Lord 3d, April 23, 1798, and the heirs of Lord sold to Abraham Caldwell, whose heirs still own the property. Dr. Manning sold the eastern part and house to Ammi R. Smith, April 25, 1798. Smith bought a small pieceof Nathaniel Lord 3d on the east of his lot, Dec. 9, 1820. Abby H. Smith, the executor of Samuel R. Smith sold this estate to John G. Caldwell, being the same conveyed to him by Zenas Cushing in 1850, July 25, 1876. The Caldwell heirs still owned in 1905.

Philip Call’s Ipswich Lot

Philip Call owned a house on this lot in 1659, and, by the deed of Woodam to Brown of the adjoining lot, in 1663, he was still in possession. Brown’s deed of the abutting lot to Paine, gives the owner of this lot as Philip Call’s widow, Mary, then the wife of Henry Bennet. Nathaniel Lord sold this lot to his son-in-law, Joseph Bolles, March 29, 1710. Bolles also bought of Joseph Fowler, owner of the abutting lot, a house and an acre of land, March 5, 1722. Charles Bolles sold his grandson, John Manning 3d, surgeon, an acre and house, bounded by Nathaniel Lord east, and Capt. Ebenezer Lord west, the estate of his deceased father, Jan 16, 1786. Dr. Manning sold the western part of the lot with a house,that he probably built, to Daniel Lord 3d, April 23, 1798, and the heirs of Lord sold to Abraham Caldwell, whose heirs still own the property. Dr. Manning sold the eastern part and house to Ammi R. Smith, April 25, 1798. Smith bought a small pieceof Nathaniel Lord 3d on the east of his lot, Dec. 9, 1820 Abby H. Smith, the executor of Samuel R. Smith sold this estate to John G. Caldwell, being the same conveyed to him by Zenas Cushing in 1850, July 25, 1876. The Caldwell heirs still own.

Children

1. Mary Call

Mary’s husband Nathaniel Lord was born 1653 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass. His parents were Robert Lord and Mary Waite. Nathaniel died 18 Jan 1733 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass.

2. Philip CALL II (See his page)

5. Frances Burr

Frances married her step-brother. Henry Bennett Jr. was born in 1664 in Ipswich, Mass.  His parents were Henry BENNETT and Lydia PERKINS.  Henry died 1739 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass.

Frances was 10 years old and Henry 15 when their parents married  on 18 Feb 1679 in Ipswich, Mass.  Frances and Henry married six years 20 May 1685 when Frances was only 16 years old.

Only one child is recorded for Henry and Frances; Mary Bennett born 3 Mar 1685 Ipswich, Mass. It is interesting to note that Mary was born two months before her parents marriage date.  Given Frances young age, the questionable marriage of step-children and the conflicting birth and marriage dates, I can only conclude that Henry got Frances pregnant.  (Greg and Marcia Brady?)  Mary went on to marry 29 Apr 1703 in Ipswich, Essex, Mass to Nathaniel Knowlton and died 1716 in Ipswich, Mass.

I had previously that that Frances’ husband was our ancestor Henry BENNETT II who married Sarah CHAMPION 9 Dec 1673 in Lyme CT, but that turns out to be an unrelated Henry Bennett.

    I think as a whole you have most of this information correct…but please where did you get the information for Philip as coming with Thomas…please where did you get such information. I have the passage on the hercules 1637 and Thomas Call doesn’t have a son or nephew with him upon that vovage going by the name of Philip. And looking at the genealogy for Thomas Call there is no Philip at all. So how do you know that Philip came with Thomas. Yes he is his nephew …The house is at 26 High Street in Ipwich…Have you been there? I have and toured it. And via the gracious occupants aquired a geneology with all the people before Philip of Ipswich… Will 1662 son died in Portsmouth 1690/91….
    Please note that Mary… daughter marrierd Joseph Boals, Bowls, before Lord.
    Robert Lord and Richard Smith are the persons withnessing and writing the will.
