JOHN SHAW-Arriving at Plymouth between 1623, when he is not named in the division of land, and 1626, when he is a Purchaser, John Shaw became the leader of one of the companies in the 1627 cattle division, and he is on the 1633 freeman list. It is likely that he had one or more children born in England, though any family would have arrived after the 1627 cattle division list, for he is alone at that time. He is later known to have a wife "ALICE", surname unknown, and it is not known if she came from England or is already living married and widowed here in New England, or if he might have had an earlier wife in England. I have obtained a year of a UNKNOWN SHAW that married a UNKNOWN WIFE in the year 1649 from some where in old Plymouth Colony records, I will try and find this source again. Alice could be the WIDOW ALICE WHITMARSH in 1644 at (was Wessaguscus or Wessagusett Colony) now Weymouth, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, New England (I never found a ALICE WHITMARSH death date anywhere).
Snow was still on the ground on the 6th April 1623, as Captain Myles Standish and several other men from Plymouth stood inside a wooden stockade at Wessagusset, on a hill a quarter-mile from where the memorial now stands. They were awaiting the arrival of Pecksuot and Wituwamat, two tall, powerfully built warriors whose relations with the Englishmen had grown increasingly hostile. Already wary of the white men's arrival, the Indians had accused Thomas Weston's company at Wessagusset of stealing their corn. Settlers, meanwhile, feared that the Indians were conspiring to attack both their encampment and Plymouth. So Standish and his cohorts went to Weston's aid, laying a trap for the unsuspecting warriors. Standish let Chief Wituwamat believe he wanted to talk things out, but when the two warriors and a pair of younger Indians stepped inside the stockade, Standish's squadron slammed the door shut. He lunged for Pecksuot's knife and stabbed him. His cohorts grappled with the other three. Moments later, all four of the Native Americans lay dead on the blood-soaked ground. Before the next day was over, Indians in a nearby village had killed three settlers outside the encampment in retribution, and Standish and his men had killed eight more Indians in a nearby village, including a woman and her child. To make sure the surviving Massachuset and Wampanoag tribes got the message, Standish took Wituwamat's and Pecksuot's heads back to Plymouth and displayed them on stakes. The Wessagusset Massacre,'' as it came to be known, lingered as an ever more distant episode of town history. The exact location of the stockade was forgotten. But through the years, Weymouth residents have gotten unsettling reminders of what happened that day.
In 1645 Captain Myles Standish with 8 of his Soldiers left Plymouth Colony and headed over to Wessagusett Colony to rescue the other colonist from savage Native American Indians there. Captain Standish and his soldiers killed 4 Indians there and the rest of the attacking Indians for what ever reason fled from Weymouth into the swamps. Is one of his soldiers JOHN SHAW and if he is with Myles Standish over in Weymouth is this how he could have met WIDOW ALICE WHITMARSH? or is she another widow ALICE some where in New England?
In the www.rootsweb.com\ancestry.com web sites I have also listed other "ALICE'S" that could fit into the time frame for John Shaw, Sr's possible wife. There also is evidence of a JOHN SHAW AND HANNAH UNKNOWN up in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts, New England in 1627. During my research I have noticed quite a few early 17th century families from the Essex County area arriving in the East Middleborough, Plympton, North Carver, Plymouth County areas such as the... Bennett's; Benson's; Burbank's; Darling's; Conant's; Mowry\Morey's; Perkin's; Smith's; Thomas's and many others...
John SHAW became one of THE FIRST SETTLERS OF MIDDLEBOROUGH IN 1662.
JOHN SHAW and his descendants surname sometimes appears in very old hand written records as: SHAWE; SHAW; SCHAW; SHAUL; SHEW; SHOARE; SHORE . . .
John Shaw engaged in a number of land transactions, is a leader of the group that cut the passage between Green's Harbor and the bay in 1633 (PCR 1:13-14), and is a highway surveyor for Plymouth in 1643 and 1644 (PCR 2:53, 72).
Plymouth Colony: Its History and People 1620-1691
Part One: Chronological Histories
Chapter 3: The Founding of Towns (1633-1643) Marshfield:
xxx First called Green's Harbor, then Rexham, this settlement finally became known as Marshfield. In writing of the year 1632, Bradford noted that some lands were granted at Green's Harbor to some special men who were expected to let their servants farm there but live at Plymouth themselves. Of course, within a few years Marshfield is a town, and Edward Winslow is one of its leading residents. On 1st July 1633 the General Court ordered that Mr. Gilson, JOHN SHAW, and the others who undertook to enlarge the passage between Green's Harbor and the sea, finish it by 1st October, or be fined £10. Whether this is done and later had to be redone, or was not done at all, is not known, but on 3rd January 1636/37 the court ordered again that the passage be enlarged, and the governor, the Assistants, and John Winslow, Jonathan Brewster, John Barnes, and Christopher Wadsworth were to apportion the costs equally to "every man" and to supervise the work there, with ten men working at a time. It does not seem that "every man" would refer to the entire colony, but more likely meant every man then living at Marshfield (and possibly some living at Scituate who would have also benefited from this access to the sea). On 5th March 1638/39, Mr. Nathaniel Thomas is appointed to exercise men at arms for Marshfield. On 2nd March 1640/41 the General Court ruled that Green's Harbor would be a township and be "called by the name of Rexham, but now Marshfield."
AN INTERESTING NOTE: "REXHAM" IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE NAME "RAYNHAM" WHICH IS LOCATED WITHIN 30 MILES DISTANCE OF MARSHFIELD IN MASSACHUSETTS.
In 1645 John Shaw is one of eight men who went out against the Narragansetts.
"On 22nd July 1648 John Shaw participated in a Murder Trial and then probably later along with the all the Colonist witnessed Alice Bishops punishment, death by hanging. (perhaps Alice is the very first women in the New England Colony convicted of and hung for murder in America? second Colonist since John Billington?)
*These sheweth, that on Jul the 22cond, 1648, wee, whosse names are vnderwritten, were sworne by Mr Bradford, gouerner, to make inquiry of the death of the child of Allis Bishop, the wife of Richard Bishope.
Wee declare, yt coming into the house of the said Richard Bishope, wee saw at the foot of a ladder wh leadeth into an vpper chamer, much blood; and going vp all of vs into the chamber, wee found a woman child, of about foure yeares of age, lying in her shifte vppon her left cheeke, with her throat cut with diuers gashes crose wayes, the wind pipe cut and stuke into the throat downward, and a bloody knife lying by the side of the child, with wh knife all of vs judg, and the said Allis hath confessed to fiue of vs at one time, yt shee murdered the child with the said knife.

Rachell, the wife of Joepth Ramsden, aged about 23 yeares, being examined, saith that coming to the house of Richard Bishope vppon an erand, the wife of the said Richard Bishope requested her to goe fetch her som buttermilke at Goodwife Winslows, and gaue her a ketle for that purpose, and she went and did it; and before shee wente, shee saw the child lyinge abed asleep, to her best deserning, and the woman was as well as shee hath knowne her att any time; but when shee came shee found her sad and dumpish; shee asked her what blood was that shee saw at the ladders foot; shee pointed vnto the chamber, and bid her looke, but shee perseiued shee had kiled her child, and being afraid, shee refused, and ran and tould her father and mother. Morouer, shee saith the reason yt moued her to thinke shee had kiled her child was yt when shee saw the blood shee looked on the bedd, and the child was not there.
Taken vppon oath by mee, WILLIAM BRADFORD,
The day and year aboue written.
At a Court of Asistants holden at New Plymouth, the first of Aguste, 1648, before Mr Bradford, Gouer, Mr Coliar, Captain Miles Standish, and Mr William Thomas, gent, Assistants, the sd Allice, being examined, confessed shee did comite the afforsaid murther, and is sory for it.

In 1653 John and Alice Shaw agreed to raise Benjamin Savory, son of Thomas and Annis Savory, and if they died before Benjamin reached twenty-one, Jonathan Shaw, John's son, is to do it, and is also to teach Benjamin reading and writing (MD 5:90).

Cousin DANA SHAW WARD'S personal knowledge of our families homesteads, sites, and locations as well as his lifetime hobby and quest of our Shaw families history and research.
PRESENTLY IT IS NOT KNOWN WHERE EXACTLY IN ENGLAND THIS JOHN SHAW AND "ALICE" ARE FROM. THE DEATH OF JOHN SHAW AND THE POSSIBLITY OF WHERE HE MIGRATED FROM COULD HAVE BEEN RECORDED IN THE VERY FIRST BOOK TITLED ["PLYMOUTH TOWNE BOOKE ANO DOMINE 1696-7 FOR BIRTHS BURIALS AND MARRIAGES PER THOMAS FFAUNCE TOWNE CLERKE"], THE THIRD LEAF, CONTAINING THE SECOND AND THIRD PAGES, ARE MISSING! I WOULD GUESS THE PAGES MISSING CONTAINED A LOT OF ANCIENT RECORDS OF OTHER EARLY COLONIAL FAMILIES TOO.YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THE ESTIMATION DATES FOR SOME OF THE EARLY ANCESTORS LISTED IN THIS FAMILY TREE. ONE OF THE REASONS THERE ARE NOT ANY SOLID MONTH, DAY, YEAR DATES OR LOCATIONS OF THIS EARLY COLONIAL SHAW FAMILIES' BIRTH, BAPTISMS, MARRIAGES AND BURIALS IN ENGLAND OR NEW ENGLAND IS ATTRIBUTED TO THE MISSING LAKENHAM PARISH CHURCH RECORDS. THIS SHAW FAMILY IS NOT THE ONLY FAMILY THAT IS AFFECTED BY THIS, THERE ARE LOTS OF OTHERS WHO ATTENDED THIS CHURCH AND LITTLE INFORMATION IS KNOWN OF THEIR VITALS BECAUSE OF THE ABSENCE OF THESE PARTICULAR RECORDS. BASICALLY SOME VITALS OF THE EARLY COLONIAL FAMILIES OF NORTH CARVER ARE VERY OBSCURE. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE MISSING CHURCH RECORDS CONTAIN MANY YEARS OF THE NO LONGER EXISTING LAKENHAM CHURCH'S ACTIVITIES.
THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS CLAIM THAT THEY DID NOT GET ALL THE COPIES OF THE RECORDS OF THE CHURCHES IN THE TOWN OF NORTH CARVER AND CARVER. A MAN NAMED DANA SHAW WARD (HE IS A DESCENDANT OF THIS FAMILY) WITNESSED AT THE 1932 CARVER HOME DAY, FIRST A MINISTER FRANK OSCAR STETSON DONATED THE ORIGINAL LAKENHAM PARISH CHURCH RECORDS TO HENRY GRIFFITH, THE TOWN CLERK OF CARVER AT THAT TIME. IT IS SAID THAT THERE IS A PHOTOGRAPH ON THE WALL LOCATED AT THE UNITED PARISH CHURCH IN CARVER WITH THESE TWO PEOPLE IN IT CELEBRATING THIS DISCOVERY OF THE TOWN OF CARVER'S VERY ANCIENT RECORDS.
SECONDLY A MINISTER COE ALSO GAVE SOME MORE PARISH CHURCH RECORDS, THAT HE CALLED THE "RECORDS OF THE NORTH CARVER CHURCH" TO HENRY GRIFFITH AS WELL, THEY TOO WERE SUPPOSED TO BE PUT IN THE CARVER TOWN HALL RECORD VAULT, BUT WHEN SEARCHED FOR, SEEM NOT TO BE LOCATED THERE THESE DAYS. THESE RECORDS ARE DESCRIBED AS VERY ANCIENT AND WRITTEN IN WHAT LOOKS TO BE OLD ENGLISH HANDWRITING. DANA ALSO SAID AT THAT TIME IN 1932 YOU WOULD NEED A MAGNIFYING GLASS TO HELP READ THEM. On page 150 of The Churches of Christ of the Congregational Way in New England, Copyright 1989 by Richard H. Taylor, 1211 Seneca Road, Benton Harbor, Michigan, 49022. Library of Congress Catalog # 89-90024; ISBN 0-9622486-0-6; lists 13. Carver, First Cong. of North Carver (Lakenham;f.Calvinistic;f.South of Plympton to 1790; Fed.to Bapt. (1791) & Meth. (?) c.1970-on as United Prot. Parish).
Also It has been said a man named Greg Hyde who is a Professor at Massasoit College made a record and a map of all the original old houses and properties of Carver, Plymouth County and the townspeople who lived in them. His wife had passed away and he married second a Finnish girl named Penti and together they moved away to Minnesota. Also these records cannot be found.
ANYONE WITH INFORMATION LEADING TO THE MISSING LAKENHAM PARISH CHURCH RECORDS OF PLYMPTON (NOW PRESENT DAY NORTH CARVER), MASSACHUSETTS, USA; PLEASE CONTACT ME I AM OFFERING A REWARD FOR THE SAFE RETURN OF THEM TO THE CARVER TOWN HALL VITAL RECORDS VAULT OR THE NEW CARVER GENEALOGY\HISTORY ROOM IN THE LIBRARY NEXT DOOR. IF THESE RECORDS LEGALLY BELONG OR ILLEGALLY BELONG TO YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, I WILL WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED PAY YOU FOR ORIGINALS OR COPIES OF THESE RECORDS. I AM AT THIS TIME UNSURE IF THE LAKENHAM MEETING HOUSE IS A SEPARATE LOCATION NEAR THE CHURCH OR IF THEY ARE ONE OF THE SAME, THE BUILDING\S NO LONGER EXIST. I DO KNOW THAT THE LAKENHAM PARISH CHURCH WAS LOCATED VERY CLOSELY TO THE PRESENT DAY LAKENHAM CEMETERY AT THE CORNER OF LINTON DRIVE AND FOREST STREET OFF OF ROUTE 58 IN NORTH CARVER, PLYMOUTH COUNTY, MASSACHUSETTS, USA.
ALSO THE SAME OFFER GOES FOR THE MISSING UNION CHURCH PARISH RECORDS LOCATED AT: 33 SOUTH MAIN STREET, ROUTE 58, CARVER, PLYMOUTH COUNTY, MASSACHUSETTS, USA. RUMOR HAS IT THAT A WOMAN IN A BITTER DIVORCE WITH THE MAN WHO OWNED OR HAD ACCESS TO THIS CHURCH CLEANED OUT THE ATTIC IN THIS OLD UNION CHURCH AND GOT HER GREEDY HANDS ON THE ORIGINAL RECORDS THAT WERE NEVER SUPPOSED TO LEAVE THAT CHURCH. SHE THEN SOLD THEM TO A LOCAL ANTIQUE DEALER IN THE AREA AND SUPPOSEDLY THEY WERE DESTROYED BY BURNING IN A FIRE IN THE BARN WHERE THE ANTIQUES OWNER KEPT HIS STORAGE. I CERTAINLY HOPE THIS IS NOT TRUE!
ALSO I WILL BUY ANY OTHER COLONIAL AND VICTORIAN RECORDS RELATING TO THIS SHAW FAMILY, ANCIENT FAMILY BIBLES, DEEDS, PHOTOGRAPHS, PERSONAL DOCUMENTS...ETC.

Saint Dunstan's Church is a landmark in the Hamlet of Stepney, East London, England area and is the only medieval church remaining there. This Church stands on a village green not far from the Stepney Green underground station. For many years this church was the most popular church in which to get married. This, then, is Stepney --- a large area that includes the districts of Bow, Bethnal Green, Bromley, East Smithfield, the Isle of Dogs, Mile End, Limehouse, Poplar, Ratcliffe, Saint George, Shadwell, Waping, Whitechapel, Stepney and others. There are many connections between Stepney and the Pilgrims that arrived at New England.
