GENERATION NO. 6
WILLIAM FURBISH was probably born about 1631 at Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and before 21 Mar 1701 at Kittery, York Co., ME. He married (1) 19. REBECCA ___________ about 1664, she was born about 1646, and died before 1686.
The Clan Forbes held forth in Aberdeenshire. The Gaelic for Forbes is Foirbeis which may explain the New England Forbush, Furbush and Furbish spellings. On September 3rd, 1650, the Scottish supporters of Prince Charles (later King Charles II) lost the Battle of Dunbar to Cromwell's English forces, with the resulting loss of four thousand Scots killed or wounded and ten thousand more taken prisoner. Five thousand of the prisoners were marched across the border and where three thousand of them were imprisoned in Durham Cathedral. The Cathedral suffered much damage during their imprisonment. The prisoners were shipped to various parts of England, Ireland and the Colonies as indentured servants. William Furbush is listed as a prisoner in a paper read to the Mass. Historical Society by Colonel Charles Edward Banks entitled "Scotch Prisoners Deported to New England by Cromwell,1651-1652. "[Ma.Hist.Soc. Proc. 61(Oct 1928)p.4, 29].
In November, 150 Scottish prisoners were delivered to Augustine Walker, Master of the Unity, to be transported to New England. His order to sail was dated November 11th and it is presumed that he weighed anchor immediately. With this cargo of 150 souls, the Unity crossed the wintery seas of the Atlantic, probably landing in Boston Harbor in late January. How many died during the voyage is not known, but upon arrival 60 were sold to the Lynn Iron Works, and the rest were distributed to various towns. The going price was between 20 and 30 pounds per man as payment for their transportation. The cost of an Atlantic passage was about 5 pounds so the owners of the Unity cleared about 1500 pounds. The average indenture was for 6 to 8 years. William Furbush and 16 other Scots were sent to the lumber mills of Kittery, Maine where they worked out their indentureship.
William and several other Scots homesteaded property on the Piscatqua River as shown by an early map in the book "Old Kittery and Her Families" by Stackpole. William owned land in Kittery in 1664 and he lived near Thompson's Point in what is now Eliot. This tract of land was 40 rods wide running from the river back one full mile or eighty acres in all. His house was in the middle of his land or about forty rods from the river where the marks of the old cellar could still be seen in the 1890s. He also had a grant of ten acres in 1668. William made his will the 27th of August in 1694 and his estate was settled by an agreement of his heirs, dated 21 March 1701, which they all signed.
On May 8th, 1681, William fforbes [Furbish] of Newichawannock [upper Kittery] testified that
"about two years since he being at the house of Joseph Hammond in the towne of Kittery in the province of Maine Major Waldern, now being of the Councill, took out of his pockett a paper which he read, being in derision of the goverment of England and after some discourse said these words, There was no more a king in England than thou, Richard Nason, unto whom he then spoke." [Colonial Papers, Vol. XLVI, No. 118. Manuscript copy in library of N.H. Hist. Soc'y.]
The name of William's first wife is not known for certain but it probably was Rebecca (a court record gives enough information to indicate his first wife's name,
"1 July 1679,[4:2:133], Wee present William Furbush for abuseing of the Constable & sleighting of his pouer & sayd hee could not answere what hee did in his office & the sayd Furbush tooke up a dreadful weapon & sayd that hee would dy before his Goods should bee carried away. Jury. The person presented fined for his Delinquency 40s & fees of Court 5s. Rebeccah Furbush presented for strikeing the Constable. Jury. The offender fined tenn shillings & Cost of Court 5s."p.355, Province and Court Records of Maine, Vol. II, Portland, Maine Historical Society, 1931 )
William may have had a second wife named Christian, born about 1652, and died after 1701, who probably survived him as the settlement reached by his heirs divided his property in thirds. According to the source below she was mentioned in his will but the will is now missing.
"Furbush, Lt. William, taxed in Dover, NH in 1659; by 1664 settled on family homestead in N.W. corner of Eliot, 40 rods on the river, where is a graveyard with about 30 unmarked stones. In the second war he withdrew to Newcastle. Wife Rebecca in 1679; his widow was Christian, about 43 in 1695. Will dated 27 Aug.1694, missing; estate distributed by agreement of heirs, 1701. Children: Daniel, m. Dorothy Pray[John]; 11 children. John, d.s.p. Hope, m. lst, Enoch Hutchins; m. 2nd, William Wilson. Catherine, m. Andrew Neal. Sarah, m. Thomas Thompson. Bethia, m. Joseph Gould.

GENERATION NO. 5
Daniel FURBISH was born about 1665 at Kittery, York Co., ME. He was the son of William FURBISH and REBECCA ___________. Daniel died before 11 Jan 1745 at Kittery, ME. He married DOROTHY PRAY about 1689 at Kittery, ME. She was born about 1668 at Braintree, Norfolk Co., MA.. the daughter of JOHN PRAY and JOANNA DOWNAM.
Daniel was the eldest son of William Furbish and was probably born soon after his father came to Kittery or about 1664. He later witnessed two deeds when his father bought the Whittam land in 1687 and 1688. Daniel inherited the home farm and lived on it all of his days. He died before 11 Jan. 1745 and his widow was the admininstratrix of his estate. He had given the greater part of his estate to his children some years before.
In later life he became a Quaker and his name is on a list of those allowed in the town in 1734 and also in 1737. It is not know if his wife Dorothy was also a Quaker. She was a member of the Berwick Church and all of their children were baptized there. The Indians captured Dorothy Furbish and one child in her home in Kittery. They killed and burnt the child. Daniel subsequently bought her back from the Indians.
Note: The information contained in "The Descendants of Daniel Forbush" by Frederick Clifton Pierce of Chicago, Illinois, published in 1892 regarding Daniel Furbish is erroneous and is refuted by Col. Banks in his "Old Eliot" series.
1. Daniel FURBISH, born 9 Mar 1690 at Kittery, ME., and died 9 Feb 1771 at Kittery, ME, at the age of 80. He married Anne LORD 18 Dec 1718 at Berwick, ME. Anne was born 27 May 1697, the daughter of Nathan LORD and Martha TOZIER. They had 6 children.
2. Rebecca FURBISH, born 19 Apr 1694 at Kittery, ME., and died after 1781 at Eliot, York Co., ME. She married Benjamin GOOLD 9 Feb 1715/1716 at York, ME. Benjamin was born about 1693, and died 1781 at Eliot, ME., the son of John GOOLD and Mary CROSSMAN. They had 8 children.
3. Lt. John FURBISH, born 19 Apr 1699 at S. Berwick, ME. He married Hannah LITTLEFIELD about 1722 at S. Berwick, ME. They had 8 children. Hannah was born 6 Aug 1710 at Boston, MA. She was the daughter of Dependence LITTLEFIELD and Elizabeth BATSON Fairfield (see note below). Hannah died after 1760. John died 1755 at Kittery, ME, at the age of 55. John was baptized and received into the church at South Berwick, 9 Sept. 1721. He was a Lieutenant in in 1722 and in 1745 was in Capt. Peter Staples Co. Louisberg Expedition. Widow Hannah was made administratrix of his estate 5 Jan. 1756. She was on tax list of 1760. John lived south of Third Hill near York line. Miriam may not be a child of Lt. John. Both sources I have have a question mark beside her name. She was more likly a child of his son John. [MY NOTE: A number of sources have indicated that the mother of Hannah Littlefield was Elizabeth Batson, but Elizabeth Batson and Dependence Littlefield were not married until 5 Dec 1718 in Boston, Ma. and Hannah was b. in 1710 (Libby), and supposedly m. abt. 1722. The approximate date of 1722 is highly suspect since Hannah would only have been 12 years old in 1722. Hannah was undoubtably the daughter of Hannah Suell, the widow of John Ballard who was already married to Dependence Littlefield in Feb.of 1707, and died before 1818. Libby, Noyes & Davis do not give a date of m. for Hannah. ["A Genealogical Dictionary Of The States of Maine & New Hampshire", Libby Noyes Davis, p. 437] WCL].
