(Vermont Gazeeter by Henenway)

James moved with his family in 1818 from Clarendon, Vt., to Overacres Corners, Yates County, N.Y., and settled on Lot 9, of Range 8. He had been County Judge and Probate Judge for Rutland County, Vt., and was selectman and representative for Town of Clarendon, Vt.

He was in Capt. Peleg Mattison's Company of Militia and served at Danby, Vt., among Green Mountain Boys who served in Vermont.

His lineage for several generations is carved on a marble slab erected over the grave of his brother, Theophylus, under whose name the inscription is given in full.

Theophelus, b. Coventry, R.I., Mar. 27, 1762; d. Clarendon, Vt., Nov. 18, 1815, m. Betsy Buck, and had eleven children including: Judah, Samuel, and a daughter who married Joseph Smith. These three migrated to Waterford, Mich., and have many descendants there and in the west.He came from Rhode Island to Clarendon, Vt., in 1785, and was associated Justice of Supreme Court of State of Vermont, and because rather renowned on account of his decision in a case in his court of a runaway slave for possession of whom his former master was contending. He hels: "Evidence on ownership of a human being is not sufficient without evidence of a bill of sale signed by God."

This ruling made a very pronounced impression in England and it is said to have been commemorated by a tablet placed in Westminister Abbey.

He had been State Representative from 1787 to 1804. Difficulties in land titles, originating in the early calim of both New York State and New Hampshire to the territory of Vermont, ceased when he came to the bench of the State Supreme Court.

He enlisted for service in Rev. War, June 15, 1778, and was discharged July 10, 1778, serving in the Company of Capt. Samuel Robinson to help guard the frontier at Rutland, Vt., and on Otter Creek, 24 days service at $2.10 per day. He is listed in the archives at Montipelier, Vt., among Green Mountain Boys who served in Rev. War from Vermont and among soldiers of Rev. War buried in Vermont. An article announcing his death appeared in the Gazette of Providence, RI., under date of Dec. 11, 1813.

The State of Vermont erected a granite shaft over his grave in Clarendon Cemetery. The inscription on a previously erected mable slab reads as follows:

"Theophelus Harrington, died Nov. 17, 1813 in his 53rd year, and was buried with Masonic Honors. He was 5th in lineal descent from Isaac Harrington who settled in Eastern Connecticut in 1636. He was 5th by his mother on his father's side from Gen. Theophelus Whaley who settled in New Haven, Conn., 1660. He was 6th also by mother on father's side from Dr. John Clark who settled in Rhode Island in 1636, and was first Baptist preacher there after the Governor of the Colony. His mother was grand-daughter of Dr. Michael Dwinnell, who fled from Paris, France, upon revocation of Edict of Nantes, and in 1686 settled in Topsfield, Mass. On the mother's side he was 5th from Thomas Harris who settled in Plymouth Colony in 1620.

He held office of Selectman and Representative for the Town, Chief Judge of Rutland County Court and for last ten years of his life was a Chancellor and assistant Judge of Supreme Court of Judicature of the State of Vermont."

See Appendix; Pri. Rcds. Capt. Henry Harrington.

John Harrington, a younger son of Sir John, The Writer, born in England prob. about 1575, came to America with his wife, _______. Clinton and two young sons, landing in Boston Harbor about 1630. The husband and father, John, was drowned in Boston Harbor soon after their arrival. (That this John who came to America was the son of John, the writer, of wife Mary Rogers, is still being debated by some genealogists.) The older son is said to have been about twelve years old.

In Middlesex Co., Mass., Registry of Deeds Vol. 1, page 87-8 there is record of an indenture seeming to secure one Susan Blackington the re-payment of sums from three to five pounds from various persons. Perhaps these debts were incurred on account of passage moneys advanced. Papers were mostly dated Mar. 30, 1637 and the persons signing were referred to as "noe in England" and one was mentioned as widow, Ann Errington, formerly of New Castle of Tyne England.

Widow Ann Errington (prob. nec. Clinton) died in Cambridge, Mass., Dec. 25, 1653 aged 77 years, as per tomb inscription in Mount Auburn State Cemetery. This is oldest tomb stone in the cemetery. She was daughter of Thos. Clinton (1571-1619) third Earl of Lincoln; son of Henry as Clinton. (1540-1616)

She was dau. Thomas Clinton, (1571-1619) Third Earl of Lincoln, Henry de Clinton, (1540-1616).


p. Robert, b. England, 1616; d. May 11, 1707, and came from Ipswick, England, to Watertown, Mass., on the ship Elizabeth, in 1634. He was 18 years old at the time according to one report. In Watertown he married Susannah George, Oct. 1, 1646. She died in July 6, 1694 She was an orphan at the time of marriage. He was admitted freeman May 27, 1663, and was given a homstall by Dacon (sic) Thomas Hastings prob. a kinsmen. His will dated Jan. 1, 1704-5, inventory shows 16 lots of land aggregating 647 acres of value 717 pounds. He purchased from John Adams of Medfield, 6 acres in Watertown in 1692. He was named among the men of Military Training Band, who elected Lieut. Mason to be Capt., 1652.

Harringtons are an old English family, the seat of which is Harrington, Northampton, England, where may be seen the Coat of Arms.

Other spelling of the name: Harrington, Herrington, Arrington, Errington, Herendeen, Hearnden, Herndon, etc. Originally the name was French, de Haverington.

p. Benjamin of Providence, R.I., b. in England about 1618; died in Providence, R.I., in 1687; m. Elizabeth White. She died in Providence, R.I.in 1701. She was dau. of William and Elizabeth White of Boston, Mass. William White came to America on the ship "Increase" Apr. 15, 1635; he was in Boston in 1646 and went from Boston to Providence, R.I., where he lived for soem years, and later returned to Boston. William White was a bricklayer. His wife, Elizabeth, died, and he married 2nd in 1653 ? P_______ Wood; he died, will dated Oct. 13, 1673, and bequeathed his property to his wife, his sons, Isaac and Cornelius, 1673, and daughters Susannah who married Thos. Waggett; Eliz. who married Benjamin Harrington; Margaret, who married Thomas Wallen, and Ursula, who married John Bennett, and also to son, William, William, Sr. witnessed the deed of Mavericks in 1649.

He p. came to America with his parents about 1630, landing in Boston Harbor. Benjamin, the elder, went to live with an uncle and became a refugee to R.I., and an adherent to the Baptist faith. Tradition also states that he ws one of the three brothers who came to Boston from England.

Just when Benjamin came to Providence isn't known. In 1662 he bought from William and Elizabeth White, his wife's parents, a house and lot of 25 acres in Providence, the money being paid by his wife, Elizabeth Harrington. He was connected with Rhodes and Westcott, land brokers.

Benjamin's will, under which his children and wife were bequeathed his property, was dated Feb. 1, 1686. One June 9, 1701, after his death in 1687, his house and lot were sold by his son, Isaac.

He was a close friend of Roger Williams whith whom one record says he was connected by marriage. Many of his descendants served in the Rev. War.

In the earliest lot of 25 acre men, received as inhabitants of Providence, Jan. 19, 1654, are found the names of John Clawson and Benjamin Herendeen. Their families were very intimate, probably related by marriage. Clawson was hired servant for Roger Williams. On the night of Jan. 4, 1661 Clawson was attacked from behind a thicket of barberry bushes, near north burial ground by an Indian named Waumanio, whom Clawson supposed to be instigated there to by Herendeen. At first assault thereto, Clawsons chin was split open by a blow with the broad axe, from the effects of which he soon afterwards died, but not before he had pronounced the strange curse upon his murderer, which the legend records as having been so strangely fulfilled, "That he and his prosterity might be marked with split chins and be haunted with barberry bushes." More than a century later testimony was collected in proof of this dying malediction. By this it appeared that the descendants of the murderer were remarkable for the excavated or furrowed chin which caused the curse of Clawson to be kept in remembrance, and many a quarrel was excited at huskings and frolics by mention of the words "Barberry bushes." "The Curse of Clawson," with singular evidences of its fulfillment was collected from the most responsible sources by the Hon. Theodore Foster and also an account of the murder and trial, with a copy of a letter from Roger Williams, May 11, 1661, concerning the estate of the murdered man and preserved in the Foster manuscripts. Attached to the Williams letter is a memorandum which says: "This paper was taken to Newport by Theodore Foster and was read in Capt. Garner's packet on Sunday, June 27, 1814, the gentlemen then present returning from the General Assembly of Providence, among whom was present, Robert Harris, Esq., who informed them, etc., "of the attack on Clawson as set forth above, but he states that the Clawson "Indian was instigated thereto by John Benjamin Harrington. In Rhode Island Trials, Vol. 1, page 70, "The Indian confessed to the killing of Clawson and was sentenced to be executed. Harrington, charged as an accessory, was cleared by the jury and court.

After Benjamin's death, his wife, Elizabeth, married Richard Pray.

On May 4, 1670, the General Assembly imposed a fine on him, but this fine was remitted by the Assembly. July 1, 1679 he was taxed 1s. 3d, Mar. 16, 1680, upon his petition to the General Assembly to remit sentence on Gen. Ct. of Trials against his wife, Elizabeth, he pleaded great poverty and debility of himself and his wife, and the fine was absolutely remitted.

May 26, 1684 he had 60 acres of land laid out to him, and Apr. 20, 1685, he and his wife deeded son Benjamin 60 acres with meadow, he being destitute of a place of settlement. Mar. 3, 1686, he and wife deeded son Joseph 67 acres for his well being and settlement, part of land situated 10 miles from Providence. Feb. 1, 1687, his will was presented and seemed probated Apr. 4, 1688. Sept. 1, 1688, the estate of Benjamin, deceased was taxed 4s. 2d.

Oct. 20, 1688, his widow (now wife of Richard Pray), deeds to her son, Isaac, homestead, houses, orchard, etc., given her for life by will of her late husband.

Dec. 13, 1701, his widow sold to Joseph Whipple house an 10 acres part of it being land owned by her father, bought by her husband, Benjamin, and willed her for life, then to son Isaac, who released her. June 19, of same year: "Whereas there is fame gone abroad that there is some person intending to purchase the house and land joining which lieth in Town of Providence and Colony of Rhode Island, and which formerly belonged to Benjamin Herendeen, Sr. of said providence deceased, and to purchase it of Isaac, son of said Benjamin Herendeen."

"These are therefore to signify unto all persons whatsoever, that to the said house Isaac hath no right or interest, but that the right, title, etc., wholely belongeth unto me, Elizabeth Pray, widow, formerly Elizabeth Herendeen."

"Providence, 11th day of March, 1674-5, so-called. Received this present day above said, of Ben Hernden six shillings nine pence which makes up ye full sum of eleven pounds for which I sold to him ye home and land which was John Clawson's, and hereby receiving this last payment of Benjamin Hernd I declare my self full satsified and doe hereby fully discharge the said Benjamin of ye payment aforesaid. Witness my hand, Roger Williams.

"Enrolled ye 12th day of May 1675 by me John Smith, Clerk."

Oath of Allegiance, the 19th of 11th month, 1648. "We whose names are hereafter subscribed, having obtained a free grant of 25 acres of land apiece with the right of commoning according to the said proportion of lands from it's free inhabitants, of the Town of Providence, do thankfully accept the same and hereby promise to yield active or passive to the authority of King and Parliament established in this colony according to our charter, adn to all such wholesome laws and orders that are or shall be made by the major consent of the Town of Providence, as also not to claim right to the purchase of said plantation nor any privileges of vote in Town affairs until we shall be received as freemen of said town of Providence."

There were 28 signatures including that of Banjamin Hearndean, mark, X (he having signed by mark.)

He signed many documents with his mark, and scarcely any two were alike in spelling. He even signed his X to the name of Herndell. In England the name is spelled Harrington, and variations of the name, Herendeen are not known among British Genealogists.

Tradition states that he was one of the three brothers who came to Boston from England, He was a close friend of Roger Williams, and a man of influence and considerable land. He swore allegiance in May, 1666, and was among the freemen admitted from Providence at the General Court held at Norwick, May 18, 1658.

"In answer to a letter from the Massachusetts Colony, touching the return of an apprentice to his master in the Bay, it is ordered that of the said apprentice, his father Benjamin Herendon, in whose keeping the said apprentice is, do not return the said apprentice speedily unto the Bay, the constable shall forthwith apprehend him and convey him to his master." -- 19th of 1st month, 1643.

John (Writer), b. 1561; d. 1612; m. Mary Rogers, dau. of Sir. Thomas (Geo.) Rogers, of Cannington on Somerset. They had 11 children, 2 of which died in infancy. The estate remained with their descendants down to 1776; among them were Henry, Edward, and John who married Ann Clinton, and sailed to America. Her lineage shown to Robert Rogers, d. 1297. Note quotations: "They had 9 children: 1st died in infancy; second ditto; Henry, Edward, John, John married Ann Clinton, dau. of Earl of Lincoln, she was born Newcastle, England, 1596, and died Charlestown, Mass., Dec. 1653."

John was a prolific writer and muse writer; National Biography, 4, 24-385 devoted several pages to John, Poet, and in this article it is stated that John Harrington of wife Annie Kelway, and who died at Wornes, 1613, was a cousin of John and the writer. On this assertion is hinged the ancestry of John the Poet.

He was Godson of Queen Elizabeth, who called him that Saucy Poet, in 1592 Queen Elizabeth made a visit to Bath and was guest of John of Delston. That year he was high sheriff of Somerset. In 1598 he was forgiven by Queen Elizabeth and chosen to accompany Robert Devereaux (1567-1601), Earl of Essex, on his ill fated expedition into Ireland. John served as commander of the horse under Earl Southampton. He was educated at Eaton in 1578, was of Christ's College and later studied law at Lincoln Inn. He was knighted by Earl Essex.

John, of England, b. at Somerset, Eng., after 1584; drowned in Plymouth, Mass., 1631; married Ann Clinton, dau. of Earl of Lincoln. She was born 1596 near Newcastle, on and Tyna England, died Dec. 25, 1653. She was 1 or 17 children, 8 boys and 9 girls. Her father born 1571, d. 1619.

He landed in Boston Harbor from England in 1630 with his wife Ann Clinton, and 2 sons. The names of two of John's brothers as Henry and Edward. She says their mother was Mary Rogers, dau. of Sir Thomas Rogers.

"One of the most remarkable circumstances attending the settlement of New England is the countenance given to the undertaking by the family of Clinton, Earl of Lincoln. Two daughters of Thomas Clinton, 3rd Earl, removed to this country as early as 1630. Their uncle, Sir Henry Finnes (as was called rather than Clinton) was a religious Puritan, as was his descendants, also his near relative, Sir James Harrington of Riddleston, and his leads to the belief that the Company of 80 persons who in 1630, sailed from Boston (prob. Boston, Eng.) in the ship "Prosperous" having been embarked by Mary Harrington Finnes, son of Sir Henre Fines, were Puritan emigrants making their way to New England. A younger son of Sir John Harrington, Godson of Queen Elizabeth came to his county with his wife and two sons, in company with other relatives in a vessel fitted out by a kinsman.

They landed in Boston Harbor about 1630. Shortly after its arrival, John Harrington was drowned, leaving his widow with two younger sons. The elder, Benjamin, went to live with an uncle and became a refugee to Rhode Island.
