  • #64 Royal Descents, Notable Kin, and Printed Sources: Notable Descendants of Samuel and Judith (Everard) Appleton, (both RD)

    Gary Boyd Roberts

    Boston “Brahmins” are those families, often aligned with Federalism, the China trade, Harvard College, the “flowering of New England,” and Beacon Hill or Back Bay, who dominated our city, state, and region — and may be said to have created the “Athens of America” — in the nineteenth and much of the twentieth centuries. Notable “Brahmins” most often descend, among immigrants with royal forebears, from Governor Thomas Dudley, whose best-known progeny was listed or covered in my last column ; from the famed Mrs. Anne Marbury Hutchinson of Boston, Rhode Island, and Pelham Bay in New Netherland, whose noted progeny is listed or covered in chapter 49, pp. 203-15, of Notable Kin, Volume Two (NK2, 1999 – and some descendants of her sister, Mrs. Katherine Marbury Scott, were treated in chapter 48, pp. 194, 196-97 [#s 1, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10]); and Samuel and Judith (Everard) Appleton of Ipswich, Massachusetts.

    I discussed the royal descents of the immigrant Appletons, to Henry I, King of England (d. 1135) and Robert I, King of France (d. 923), respectively, in my introduction to Massachusetts and Maine Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis (1996), 1:xi-xiii. These descents are outlined in my Ancestors of American Presidents, 1st ed. (1995), pp. 198-200, 195-96, which also notes the kinships to Owen Glendower and the Tudors (see, in addition, The Genealogist 12 [1999]: 254-55), descent from a sister of Magna Charta baronial leader Robert FitzWalter, and possible lines to Hugh Capet (d. 996), or Louis IV (d. 954), kings of France.

    A majority of Samuel and Judith’s notable descendants were indeed “Brahmins” and several were the spouses or children of Appletons; the progeny of Samuel Appleton, Jr. and his second wife, Mary Oliver, moreover, were also descendants of Percival Lowell (ancestor of all the Boston Lowells), whose newly developed RD is mentioned in the 2002 reprinting of my 1993, The Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants, p. 656. Harvard president Edward Holyoke, U.S. president Franklin Pierce, H.W. Longfellow, C.F. McKim (of McKim, Mead, and White), and Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte, Jr. all married Appletons Bishop William Lawrence was the son of Sarah Elizabeth Appleton, and Leverett Saltonstall was a great-nephew of Bishop Lawrence. John, Samuel (V), and Wendell Phillips were agnate descendants of Sarah (Appleton) Phillips, daughter of Samuel and Judith; Harvard president Josiah Quincy (III) and Bishop Phillips Brooks were sons of Phillipses; and “signer” William Whipple, Jr., Mrs. John Singleton Copley, T.W. Higginson, Mrs. Louis Bromfield, and businessman R.W. Miller (father-in-law of the exiled Crown Prince Paul of Greece) had Appleton grandmothers. Other “Brahmin” surnames represented by the following 50 figures —besides Appleton, Lawrence, Saltonstall, Phillips, Quincy, Brooks, and Higginson — include Lowell, Parkman, Shaw, Adams, Bundy, Ames, Richardson, Morison, and Bradlee.

    One granddaughter of Samuel and Judith (Everard) Appleton — Judith Appleton, daughter of Samuel, Jr. and his first wife, Hannah Paine — married Samuel Wolcott of Wethersfield, Connecticut. Three of Judith’s daughters married respectively a Burnham, a Welles, and a Robbins, and left a notable progeny associated largely with Connecticut, Yale, New York City, Wall Street, and points west. Mrs. Wolcott’s descendants among the figures below are James Stillman of National City Bank (now Citibank), gun manufacturers Eliphalet, Jr. and Philo Remington, Mrs. John Joseph Pershing, poet and playwright Archibald MacLeish, Mrs. Charles Scribner, Jr. and her son and grandson (C.S. III and IV) of Charles Scribner’s Sons, justice J.M. Harlan (II) and Mrs. [Edward] William Proxmire (a “Greenwich Rockefeller”). The only U.S. president himself of Appleton ancestry, [John] Calvin Coolidge [Jr.], was descended from another granddaughter of Samuel and Judith — Priscilla Appleton, daughter of John Appleton and Priscilla Glover — who married Rev. Joseph Capen of Topsfield, Massachusetts, and was also an ancestor of Mrs. Henry Adams via Hooper, Sturgis, Davis, Watson, and Thomas; and of Mrs. Anthony Crosland, wife of the British Foreign Secretary, via Watson and Thomas. Several “Brahmin” Appleton descendants via Rogers and Parkman are noted in NK1: 189, 193, 220.

    Following the list below of 29 notable Appleton descendants treated in NK1, NK2, and Internet columns #s 54 and 63, my coverage of an additional 21, in the usual “Notable Kin” format, includes all of each figure’s lines from other immigrants of royal descent, especially Percival Lowell, several Bulkeleys, Richard and Muriel (Gurdon) Saltonstall, Mrs. Mary Gye Maverick, Mrs. Alice Freeman Thompson Parke and Mrs. Margaret Wyatt Allyn of Connecticut, Edward Raynsford, and (of possible RD) John and Josiah Winslow.
