Additional Biography:

In the 1630s and '40s references place Wm. H.'s residence in Watertown, and in the 1650s in Cambridge.  This may not mean he moved.  In First Inventory of Grants and Possessions in Watertown his “homestall” is listed in this town, with the Cambridge line as the northeast boundary. (Ref. 2)  Later (Nov. 1660) he and Sarah sold land and buildings in Cambridge with the Watertown line on the south.  Among boundary changes involving these towns, two, in 1654 and '55, occurred with the annexations of Watertown land to Cambridge, the line separating them being carried about a half mile westward.  (Ref. 15, p.4)  Hamlet property in this annexed land would now be listed in Cambridge.

When Wm. H. became a Freeman in 1651, requirements included membership in the Church in Cambridge, for which the Rev. Thomas Shepard had been the Minister (1635 to 1649).  Church membership required a “Confession of Faith.”  Mr. Shepard recorded 50 Confessions in his own peculiar handwriting and thewse have been made legible, edited, and published. (Ref. 16)  William's Confession (No. 27), four pages long, refers to his having been in London, and, like the pattern of other testimonies, describes a course away from erroneous ways toward Christianity via friends, clergy, and The Bible.  The Confessions would have been made before 1649, the date of Shepard's death, so Wm.'s would apply to the period of his life in England and early existence in New England.

The Editors (G. Selement and B.C. Wooley) of Confessions include in the preface to Wm.'s that he “seems to have been of barely average position in the community, being granted only 60 acres at Shawshine” and “--the townspeople placed him in charge of the cow common and ---appointed him to supervise the cutting of trees.”

Shepard's successor, the Rev. Jonathan Mitchell, minister from 1650 till his death in 1668, “compiled an account of the Church of Christ at Cambridge, --in which he rescued many interesting facts from oblivion.” (Ref. 15, p.261)  In this manuscript account (Ref. 7) Mitchell recorded the names of members in “full Communion” in 1658.  However oblivious to other details, Mitchell has provided vital information of the Hamlet Family in recording that Wm. married Sarah and there were the 3 Hubbard and 2 Hamlet children.

In Billerica, grants of land made by the town after 1660 added acreage to the inhabitants' holdings, including William's.  In 1661 Willi Hamlitt became “Clark to ye company,” i.e. Clerk of the Trayne Band, a military unit.  In 1661 Willm Hamblet participated in the accounting involved in building a meeting house.  In 1664 his name is included in a testament of support for King Charles II.  1662-1664 Wm. listed among Selectmen.  (Ref. 8)

Hazen refers to “William Hamlet at least and probably George Farley” as Baptists in Billerica at an early day and cites a letter from Hamlet relating early troubles “published” by Backus, the Baptist historian.  (Ref. 8, p.269)  Sewell provides the text of the 1672 letter.  (Ref. 17, p.158)  Backus (Ref. 18, vol. 1, p. 310) includes this with the following: “I percieve you have heard as if our brother Russell had died in prison.  Through grace he is yet in the land of the living, and out of prison bonds; but is in a doubtful way as to recovery of his outward health; but we ought to be quiet in the good will and pleasure of our God, who is only wise.  I remain your loving brother, William Hamlit  Boston, 14, of the 4th month, 1672.”

Mr. Hamlit wrote on June 19, 1673, that the Baptists were still persecuted for their withdrawing from the public meetings, and said:  “Brother Trumbel and brother Osburne were fined last Court at Charlestown, twenty shillings apiece; they have appealed to the Court of assistants.”

Further:  Mr. Billingham dying, and Mr. Leverett being chosed Governor, ---things took another turn, so that Mr. Hamlet wrote to his brother Hubbard, on Jan. 9, 1674, and said, “Brother Drinker hath been very sick near unto death, but the Lord hath restored him to health again.  The church of the baptized do peaceably enjoy their liberty.  Brother Russell, the elder and the younger, have good remembrance of you.”

The first Baptist Church in Boston was constituted in 1665.  William Hamlit's membership was recorded soon after 1669.  Idem.

1685:  In testimony of Wm. Hamlet of Billerica about illness of Simon Crosby, rrecorded under “Military” in the MA State House Archives, Wm. Was observed to be “aged about 60 or thereabout.”

           Reuben (4) b. 11 Oct. 1732; of Chelmsford; m. 8 Nov. 1759 Deborah Austin of Methuen.                            (Ref. 41)

NB:  In the Hudson “Births, Marriages and Deaths” compiled by Kimball Webster in the Hudson Town Clerk's Office Reuben is listed as the first child of Joseph (4) and Susanna (Durant) Hamblet.  That Joseph (4) and Susanna were his parents is questioned because their marriage is recorded as over two years later. Placing him as above is an arbitrary decision, and his true parentage needs better substantiation.


Joseph (3) Hamblet, Husbandman, in 1721, sold his 60-acre homestead with house and barn thereon to his half-brother, Abraham Jaquith.  This land lay adjacent to Jaquith's, next to the Billerica town line, in a part of Woburn that subsequently became Wilmington.  In this year, 1721, he bought from John Butler, also of Woburn, for 80 pounds the moiety or half of the tract which Butler had purchased from Col. Jonathan Tyng a few weeks earlier.  “In 1721 or 1722, John Butler and Joseph Hamblet bought land two miles west of the (Pelham) Center --- on the Mammouth Road.  They cleared land, sowed grain and went back to Woburn for the winter, and returned in the spring with their families.”  It is supposed that Joseph had a mill at the outlet of Gumpus Pond nearby.           (Ref. 42)


John Butler married Joseph's sister, Mary (4) in 1735, as recorded above.


The supposed site of the Butler-Hamblet homestead(s) was on the SE corner of the intersection of Mammoth Road with the road from Pelham Center that continued west between Gumpus Pond and Jeremy Hill.  It was in the eastern extremity of old Dunstable close to the boundary of Dracut District.


In 1732 under Massachusetts authority Dunstable territory east of the Merrimac River was incorporated as Nottingham.  At Nottingham's first town meeting in 1733 Joseph (4) was elected one of the Selectmen.  The Congregational Church was built and the Rev. Nathaniel Merrill became its minister.  The birth and marriage records he maintained from 1738 to 1795 are valuable additions to civil records.  In 1741, the boundary between Massachusetts and New Hampshire was established, and in 1746, now under New Hampshire authority, the part of Nottingham north of the boundary was incorporated as Nottingham West, to distinguish it from another Nottingham in NH, and also in 1746 Pelham was incorporated, much of it the former district of Dracut, and a strip was added to it from the eastern extremity of Nottingham West which comained the Hamblet property.  At Pelham's first town meeting in 1746 Joseph (4) again became a Selectman.              (Ref. 40)


Land south of the western part of Nottingham West became Tyngsborough in 1809.  The name of Nottingham West became Hudson in 1830.


Tyngsborough was incorporated as a town in 1809.

Joseph (4) was about 13 years old in 1722 when his father, Joseph (3), moved with his family to Mammouth Road in old Dunstable.  Sometime after 1750 Joseph (4) settled in Dracut, MA, where he had a homestead farm of 3 acres on the east side of Beaver Brook with house, barn, grist mill and saw mill.  In 1773 he and Susanna transferred these to their son John (5), reserving the right to use the dwelling house.
