207 BOYCE FAMILY. Joseph Boyes (1), the immigrant ancestor of Franklin James Boyce, of Worcester, was born in England about 1615. The name is also spelled Boyce and Boyse. It is of French origin meaning Wood, and probably dates back to the Norman conquest. Du Bois is still a common name in France. In Scotland, whence came most of the Boyes families of America, either directly or from the branches settled in Ulster province, Ireland, the family home is in Forfarshire. Joseph Boyes, who came to America, was a tanner by trade. He settled in Salem, where he was a proprietor in 1639. He was admitted to the church there April 7, 1640, and was made a freeman May 18, 1642. He sold his house and land in 1657. But little is known of him. His will was dated November 4, 1684, and proved February 18, 1694-5, bequeathing to his wife Eleanor, son Joseph; daughters Mary Southick; Hester _____; and Elizabeth Hanson; to Joseph's children, Joseph and Benjamin.

The children of Joseph and Eleanor Boyes were: Hester, baptized February 21, 1640; Eliza or Elizabeth, baptized at Salem, March 6, 1642, married _____ Hanson; Joseph, of whom later; Benjamin, baptized May 16, 1647, died before 1684; Mary married _____ Southick.

211 There is perhaps no single one among the hundreds of prominent family names in New England history which has been made the subject of more expended mention in gencalogical reference works than that of Bradford ; a name which has been known in American history from the time of the "Mayflower" and one which in all generations from Governor William Bradford has been represented by men of achievement, men of the highest character, and men whose influence in public and domestic life always has been for good. And it may be said without any assumption of vanity that Bradford is and for nearly three centuries has been one of the strong family names of New England, and naturally, there always has been on the part of those bearing that name a desire to know if they were of the same ancestral familyas that of the distinguished governor, who appears to have been the first of his name this side of the Atlantic ocean.

There are many facts which seem to indicate blood relationship among the several Bradford immigrants who came to New England during the half century next following the landing of the "Mayflower" Pilgrims, but English references do not afford the means necessary to establish the connection beyond question of doubt. There always has existed a belief that the family proposed to be treated in this place is of the same English stock as that of Governor William Bradford, but the very first knowledge we have of the immigrant ancestor of this particular family is that Robert Bradford (1), was born inEngland about 1626, lived in Beverly in the colony of Massachusetts Bay, died there January 13, 1707, aged eighty years, and that letters for the administration of his estate were granted after his decease. This Robert Bradford had children, and among them were sons Robert and William.

239 The surname Burbank (also spelled Bowerbank) is found in the Domesday Book. At a later date the spelling was Bowbank. Some of the American lines have preferred the spelling Burbancke. Most if not allthe New England families using the spelling Burbank, are descended from John Burbank. who settled in Rowley, as below.

(I) John Burbank, immigrant ancestor, born in England, about 1600, settled in Rowley, Massachusetts, where he was admitted a freeman May 13. 1640, and was recorded in the same year as a proprietor ofthe town, and held various town offices.

244 THE BUTTERFIELDS that became identified with the settlement of this town, although hailing from Londonderry, were unmistakably of English origin. Benjamin Butterfickl, an emigrant from England, was in Charlestown in 1638. He "projected" settling in Woburn in 1640 and was made a freeman in 1643. He is known to have had as children: Man,-, born in England, Nathaniel, born in America, Feb. 14, 1643,Samuel, born May 17, 1647, Joseph, born Aug. 15, 1649. He removed to Chelmsford in 1654, where his wife Ann died, May 19, 1660. He married Hannah, widow of Thomas Whittemore, of Maiden, June 3, 16t!3. He was doubtless the ancestor of-the Butterflelds of Middlesex Co., Mass. Quite early in the last century Samuel Butterfield, then a resident of Chelmsford, Mass., was a member of a military companysent to Groton to guard and assist some reapers. This company was attacked by Indians and Mr. Butterfield after killing one and disabling two of the savages, was captured and marched to Canada. It was the design of his captors that he should die by torture but the manner of his disposal was left to the wife of the Indian whom he had killed, and she decided that she would have him for a servant, and thus his life was spared and he was subsequently ransomed. More of the history of Samuel Butterfield is not known save that he was the father of William Butterfield of Londonderry and Francestown.

WILLIAM BUTTERFIELD, Sr., son of Samuel, married Rebecca Parker of Chelmsford. a sister of Col. Parker, who was wounded at Bunker Hill and died in a British hospital at Boston. He settled in Londonderry, where he remained until about the year 1771, when he came to Francestown and began on the John Balch place. The house in which he lived was built upon the snow in the dead of winter and when the snow disappeared a large and troublesome stump was found standing within the building. His children were: William, who brought a family to Franeestown. Isaac, who settled in the Xahum Russell district, in what is now Greenfield. Joseph, who went to Standish, Maine, Samuel, Robert, Oliver, Jesse. Rebecca and Joanna, who came with their parents to Franeestown. Oliver succeeded his father on the homestead upon the death of the latter. Jesse died here in Sept.. 1777. Rebecca married Moses Lewis and lived in Greenfield.

Apparently, he later repented, after his 3rd wife died, he wa s rec into memberhsip on 12-8-1865!

He was rejected for Civil War service because of a double jointed thumb

Appears to be living next door to Alice (Bowerman) Vibber during the 1870 Census (ADV 10/3/2009).
He and his wife Sarah are living with his nephew John F. Calkins during the 1900 Census (ADV 10/3/2009).

I have a typed copy of the following tribute to Almeron, found by EdithHaviland in a box of l etters and papers belonging to Ellen. The original is in her own handwriting and was evident ly written after his death in1904:

Almeron B. Calkins departed this life April 17th age 84 years 5 mo 18days. He was born in Ne w York State Nov. 2nd 1819. Came to Michigan with Father and Mother Jared and Susanna Calkin s in 1836, then 17 years old,settling on the farm known as the Thomas Chandler farm, he and h is brother William walking from Toledo. Almeron was one of nine children,one brother Dr. Will iam and one Sister Sabrina Adams survive him, also three children, Esther Lindsey, Ellen Havi land and Ashley Calkins. He was four times married, the third wife being the Mother of the Ch ildren. He was brought up a Friend. Although he never made any public profession, he was on t he Lord's side dropping a word here and there for right. He (the next was apparently illegibl e) casting his first and last vote in the same town. He had been in declining health for som e time and was only confined to his bed (illegible) days. His children all aiding in caring f or him in his last sickness. A kind and loving Father has gone. How we miss his voice and smi le but he has gone to meet his loved ones gone before.

Added at the bottom of my copy is the following information:

Esther Lindsey lived at Williamsburg, Mi.
Ellen Haviland lived at Raisin Center, Mi
Ashley Calkins (Charles Ashley Calkins) lived at Detroit, Michigan
The surviving brother and sister, Dr. William lived at Frontier,
