This summer Salem, Massachusetts commemorates the 300th anniversary of its
witchcraft hysteria, which resulted in the execution of 20 innocent victims six
men and 14 women. Five of these twenty (Mrs. Martha [Rich] Corey, third wife of
“wizard” Giles Corey below; Mrs. Sarah Solart Poole Good/Goode, widow of Daniel
Poole and wife of William Good/Goode; Mrs. Alice Parker; Mrs. Wilmot Reed/Redd,
wile of Samuel Reed/Redd; and John Willard) left either no children, no
known children, no grandchildren or no known grandchildren. Major
new articles and books on the remaining 15 began to appear about a dozen years
ago; I have looked for notable descendants of the royally descended Rev. George
Burroughs for probably 20 years; and about ten years ago I spoke to the Towne
Family Association and have, since that lecture’s preparation, noted various
historically interesting descendants of “witches” Mary Estey, Rebecca Nurse and
their siblings. This article is a report on the recent literature concerning
these 15 “witches” or “wizards,” their parents, wives, and children, plus a
summary of my findings on notable Burroughs and Towne descendants. I might first
note, however, that three U.S. presidents are descended from one of these
victims, or their siblings - Arthur from Mrs. Susanna North Martin and a sister
of John Proctor, Jr.; Taft from George Jacobs; and Ford from a brother of Mrs.
Mary Ayer Parker. Another witchcraft victim, Samuel Wardwell, married secondly
Mrs. Sarah Hooper Hawkes, who survived him. Sarah’s first husband, Adam Hawkes
of Saugus, Mass., was an ancestor, by his first wife, Mrs. Ann (probably
Brown) Hutchinson, of Presidents John and John Quincy Adams, First Ladies Grace
Anna Goodhue Coolidge and Lou Henry Hoover, and The Princess of Wales and her
The leading contemporary scholar of “witch” families is David L. Greene,
co-editor of The American Genealogist (TAG), whose articles on Bridget
Bishop, George Jacobs, Susannah Martin and the Bray Wilkins progeny (to which
belonged the wife of John Willard) all appeared in volumes 57-60 of TAG
(1981-84) and who reported J.D. Morrell’s discovery of the 1631 baptism of
John Proctor (Jr.), plus the 1630 Groton, Suffolk marriage of his immigrant
parents and the 1633 baptism of a sister, in the 1981 Register. Mr.
Greene, Glade I. Nelson of the Mormon Family History Library in Salt Lake City,
and George Ely Russell, former editor of the National Genealogical Society
Quarterly (NGSQ), have all written TAG articles on George Burroughs
(Mr. Russell’s showed that Nathaniel Burrough, father of the “wizard,” lived for
a while in Calvert Co., Maryland and Roxbury, Massachusetts). Robert Charles
Anderson of the NEHGS Great Migration Project reported his discovery of Bridget
Bishop’s 1660 first marriage, and the baptism of two children, in TAG
64(1989). Mr. Russell listed all 39 American “witches” in TAG
57:33-34, and Mr. Greene’s plan to cover all Salem “witch” families was
discussed in TAG 59:245-46. A forthcoming issue of TAG, moreover,
is scheduled to contain an article on the English origins of Susanna Martin’s
parents. In addition to these recent TAG and Register items,
Proctor genealogies were published in 1979 and 1985, a Wardwell monograph in
1985, Currents of Malice on Mary Esty/Estey and the Townes in 1990, and a
Cory genealogy (with only two pages on Giles, however) in 1991.
Among major predecessors of the above-named scholars, Maine genealogist
Walter Goodwin Davis, Jr., in three of 16 books covering his entire known
American (and much English) ancestry, treated Rebecca Nurse and her siblings and
Sarah Wildes. Mary Lovering Holman covered Margaret Scott in her 1919 Scott
Genealogy, the parents of Martha Carrier (plus Martha’s sister Mary, wife of
accused “wizard” Roger Toothaker, who died in prison) in her 1938 set outlining
the full American ancestry of the founders of Pillsbury Flour Co., and the
Townes and accused “witch” Sarah Cloyce, sister of Mary Estey and Rebecca Nurse,
in the 1948 Stevens-Miller compendium. Mrs. Holman’s daughter, Mrs. Winifred
Lovering Holman Dodge, covered Mary Parker in “Andover Ancestry, Volume II”
(1936), compiled for Chauncey Devereux Stillman, and mother and daughter
compiled Proctor notes as well. When this Davis and Holman work is added to that
of David L. Greene and his colleagues, the printed coverage of most “witch” or
“wizard” families can indeed answer many questions and provide a solid base for
proving many descents. Thus my first offering below is a genealogical
bibliography of the best printed sources for the 15 Salem witchcraft
victims of 1692 known to have left descendants for several generations.
In two earlier “Notable Kin” columns (NEXUS 3:178-80 and
7:208-12)1 outlined the Burroughs descent of Walt[er Elias] Disney, the
cartoonist,  producer, and founder of Disney Studios, Disneyland,
etc., and the Towne descent, via Sarah Cloyce and the Bridges and Barton
families, of Red Cross founder Clarissa Harlowe “Clara” Barton. We might also
note Disney’s brother and partner Roy Oliver Disney and son-in-law (and former
Disney CEO) Ronald William Miller, husband of Diane Marie Disney, Walt’s
daughter by Lillian Marie Bounds. Two further Burroughs descendants and eight
Towne descendants are covered below. The former are Isaiah Thomas, the colonial
printer, and a great-granddaughter of Isaiah who married a U.S. attorney general
and secretary of state. Three of the latter eight are descendants of Mary Estey
- Mrs. David Gouverneur Burnet, whose husband was Sam Houston’s predecessor as
(first) president of the Republic of Texas, and her great-great nephew, diplomat
David Kirkpatrick Este Bruce; and Joan Bennett Kennedy, former wife of Senator
Edward Moore Kennedy and mother of Rhode Island legislator Patrick [Joseph]
Kennedy’ [II] (b. 1967). Mrs. Burnet’s paternal grandfather, himself a grandson
of Mary Estey, moved from Topsfield, Massachusetts to Morristown, New Jersey;
Mrs. Burnet’s father, whose descendants are usually called Este, married
a sister of New Jersey jurist Andrew Kirkpatrick. Ambassador Bruce married
firstly Ailsa Mellon, daughter of Pittsburgh industrialist, financier and art
collector Andrew William Mellon, also secretary of the treasury, 1921-32, and
sister of art collector and philanthropist Paul Mellon. Audrey Bruce, only child
of David and Ailsa, married Stephen Currier; their three children (Lavinia,
Michael and Andrea) are included in the 1990 and 1991 “Forbes 400.” Patrick
Kennedy, whose considerable “Old Yankee” ancestry is derived through a
great-grandfather, Henry Wiggin Bennett (born Alton Bay, New Hampshire 6 Feb.
1866), is, of course, a nephew of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Senator
Robert Francis Kennedy, a grandson of financier and diplomat Joseph Patrick
Kennedy, and a first cousin of Congressman Joseph Patrick Kennedy (III) and
television reporter Maria Owings Shriver Schwarzenegger.
Of the five remaining Towne descendants treated below, only the above-named
Walter Goodwin Davis, Jr., one of the giants of mid-twentieth century genealogy,
was a descendant of Rebecca Nurse/Nourse (as well as of two of her brothers),
and only Pillsbury president and board chairman Philip Winston Pillsbury (son of
the Mrs. Pillsbury who sponsored much of the best genealogical work of the
Holmans above) was a descendant of Sarah Cloyce. Ithiel Town, architect of two
of the three churches on the New Haven Green, near Yale, and of state capitols
in North Carolina and Indiana, was descended from Joseph Towne, youngest brother
of the witchcraft victims; First Lady Grace Coolidge was descended from Edmund
Towne, the eldest brother; and Robert Maynard Hutchins, president of the
University of Chicago and a major leader of “progressive” education, was
descended from Jacob Towne, next oldest brother of Mary Estey. These eight
figures are associated with three “tycoon” fortunes and dynasties - Mellons,
Kennedys and Pillsburys - and with Texas (Burnet), Washington, D.C., Maryland
and Virginia (Bruce), Minneapolis (Pillsbury) and Chicago (Hutchins). The Towne
progeny, and probably also the descendants of other “witches” and “wizards,” are
typical, it seems, of the “New England family” overall.
Below, then, is a bibliography of the families of these 15 witchcraft
victims, with asterisks denoting “first- generation immigrants” (whose parents
cannot now be proved to have lived here), followed, in the usual
format of this column, by the ten notable Burroughs or Towne descendants and
sources that document these descents. Following a figure’s name, birth and death
years, and a brief career description, plus parenthesis and the name of his wife
if the treated ancestry is hers, are his or her parents, a set of grand parents,
great-grand parents, etc., backwards to Burroughs, Mary (Towne) Estey, Rebecca
(Towne) Nurse, Sarah (Towne) (Bridges) Cloyce or William Towne and Joanna
Blessing. As always, semicolons separate generations, and commas separate
couples in the same generation.
