    RALPH SHEPARD

    ORIGIN: Stepney, Middlesex [Shepard Fam 1:2].

    MIGRATION: 1635 on the Abigail (on 30 June 1635, ?Ralph Sheppard,? aged 29, and ?wife & daughter,? ?Thankes Sheppard,? aged 23, and ?Sara Sheppard,? aged 2, were enrolled at London as passengers for New England on the Abigail [Hotten 97]).

    FIRST RESIDENCE: Watertown.

    REMOVES: Dedham 1637, Weymouth 1639, Malden by 1650, Concord by 1666.

    OCCUPATION: Tailor [ChBOP 122-23; MLR 3:105, 234, 6:338].

    CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: Admission to Malden church prior to 1 April 1651 implied by freemanship. On 29 May 1655, in ?answer to the petition of Joseph Hill, Abraham Hill, Jno. Waite, Jno. Sprage, Ralph Shepard, Jno. Uppam, James Greene, & Thomas Call, in which they humbly acknowledge the offense they gave to the court & several churches about the ordination of Mr. [Marmaduke] Mathewes [at Malden], &c., and therein also craving a remitment of thirteen pounds six shillings and eight pence, part of a fine not yet satisfied, the Court doth well approve and accept of the petitioners acknowledgements of their irregular actings in those times, but understanding much, if not most, of the fine being paid for, & that the rest is secured and should long since have been paid in, they see not cause to grant their request in that? [MBCR 4:1:236].

    FREEMAN: On 1 April 1651, ?Raph Shepard took the oath of a freeman? at Middlesex Court [MCR 1:11].

    EDUCATION: Both Ralph Shepard and his wife signed their deeds [MLR 3:105-6, 234-36, 6:338, 10:31].

    OFFICEHOLDING: Weymouth fenceviewer, 9 February 1645/6 [Ralph Shepard 11, citing ?Weymouth Town Records (MS.): Vol. I: Copied by Richard Blanchard: 1856: p. 41?].

    ESTATE: On 18 August 1636, the town of Dedham granted twelve acres of land to ?Raffe Shepheard? [DeTR 1:20]. On 23 March 1636/7, the town of Dedham granted to ?Philemon Dalton, Lambert Genere, Raffe Shepheard & Joseph Morse, one parcel of meadow as it lyeth upon the river, between the barren hills & the said river, in consideration of their pains taken in first discovery of the north side of our town? [DeTR 1:29]. On 11 May 1637, ?Ra[lph] Shepherd? was granted four acres of swamp [DeTR 1:31]. On 11 August 1637, the town of Dedham ?consented that Nic[h]o[las] Phillipps may purchase of Joseph Kingsbery that lot which formerly was granted unto Raffe Shepheard for a gratification to dispose unto some other man? [DeTR 1:33].

    On 28 September 1637, ?John Eaton manifesting himself to be willing to lay down unto the town either his lot in the island or that six acres in the plain which he purchased of Raffe Shepheard, & which of these to do he hath taken 6 weeks liberty to give his resolution? [DeTR 1:37]. On 28 July 1638, ?Raffe Shepheard, Lambert Genere, Jos[eph] Kingsbery, Jos[eph] Shawe, & Nat[haniel] Colberne are assigned to take the 16 acres 3 [roods] 12 poles lying downstream next above the [pond] & divide the same betwixt them to make up their half lots. Raffe Shepherd to have the overplus towards satisfaction of that he parted with at home? [DeTR 1:46].

    On 21 August 1639, ?Raffe Shepheard? sold to ?Mr. John Allin ? the one-half of his twelve acres of upland ? together with all claim or interest which he had or might have had in the swamp or meadow at either end? [DeTR 1:58].

    In the Weymouth land inventory of about 1642, Edward Bate had ?half an acre of fresh marsh ? bounded ? on the south with Ralph Shepperd?s lot? [Weymouth Hist 1:184]. In the same inventory, Edward Poole was credited with ?two acres at the stepping stone, the swamp on the east, the highway on the west, the land of Ralph Shepherd on the north, of Mr. Newman on the south? [Weymouth Hist 1:185].

    ?About the year 1643 a joint agreement was made by inhabitants of Seaconk alias Rehoboth for the bringing in of their estates that so men?s lotments might be taken up according to person & estate?; the thirteenth name in the list was ?Ralph Shephard, now James Redewaye?s,? with the estate valued at 121 10s. [Rehoboth TR 1:1-2]. The first entry in the inventory of ?The Lands of James Reddeway? is ?one houselot lying on the northwest side of the town containing eight acres ? that was the lot of Ralph Shephard?; the inventory continues with eight additional parcels of land, but it is not clear whether they were initially granted to Shepard, or were granted to Reddaway after he acquired Shepard?s proprietary share [Rehoboth TR 1:11-12].

    On 19 March 1650/1, ?Richard Palgrave of Charltowne ?, physician, with the consent and assent of Anne my wife,? sold to ?Ralph Shepheard of Maldon ?, tailor, my lot of upland lying by the north spring on Mystic Side containing five acres ?, also my four cow lots? [ChBOP 122-23].

    On 16 December 1661, ?Ralph Shepard of Maulden layeth claim to a parcel of land lying in Maulden containing about sixty rods lying trianglewise ?, sometime the land of Jno. Lewis deceased? [MLR 2:384].

    On 5 February 1663[/4?], ?Ralph Shepard of Mauldon ?, tailor, with the assent & consent of Thankslord my wife,? sold to ?Abraham Hill of the town ? aforesaid, carpenter, ? all that my land both pasture and broken up land, situate, lying & being between the land of Joseph Hills Junior and the land of Thomas Linde Junior, in the town of Mauldon? [MLR 3:105-6]. On 7 July 1666, ?Ralph Shepard of Mauldon ?, tailor, with the assent and consent of Thankslord my wife,? sold to ?Mr. Benjamin Bunker of the town ? aforesaid, clerk, ? all that my dwelling house in Mauldon with all the outhouses, barns, stables, orchards, yards, gardens, and land thereto adjoining containing by estimation about fourteen acres ?, also a fifteen acre lot of swamp land lying in the great swamp being sometimes the proper lot of Mr. Withrell ?, also a parcel of land containing three acres and a half ?, lying within the bounds of Charlestowne by the north spring ?, also four hay lots lying within the bounds of Charlestowne ?, also two hay lots lying in Charlestowne bounds? [MLR 3:234-36].

    On 25 March 1666, ?Ralph Shepard of Concord ?, tailor, with the assent & consent of Thankslord my wife,? deeded to ?my son-in-law Walter Power of Concord ?, planter, ? a certain parcel of land, both upland & meadow land, situate, lying and being in Concord aforesaid, and is part of the land formerly purchased of Lt. Joseph Wheeler, containing in the whole sixty acres?; acknowledged by ?Ralph Shepard? on 31 March 1675 and by ?Thanklord Shepard? on 28 March 1675 [MLR 6:338-41].

    On [blank] [blank] 1678, ?Lt. Joseph Wheeler of Concord? sold to ?Ralph Shepard of the same place ? one parcel of land ? within the bounds & limits of Concord aforesaid, containing by estimation six hundred & ten acres of upland, swamp & meadow land, ? butted & bounded northeast by Chelmsford line, and southwest upon Nashobah Township, & southeast upon a great pond called Nagog, & so lying in a triangle, with the point of the triangle northwest? [MLR 7:204].

    On 29 May 1681, ?Ralph Shepard of Concord? deeded to ?Abraham Shepard of the said town ? part of my farm or tract of land which I bought of Lieutenant Joseph Wheeler, and is situate and lying within the bounds of Concord, & adjacent to the Indian plantation called Nashobey ?, that is to say one houselot ?, also the upper end or half of the long meadow ?, also a swamp at the head of said meadow about four or five acres, also a part of the great meadow ?, and one-third part of my said farm that is yet undivided? [Ralph Shepard Gen 43-45, citing ?Records of the Town of Concord (MS.): Transcribed by David Pulsifer, Vol. I., p. 278?; see also MLR 14:66]. On the same day, ?Ralph Shepard of Concord ?, in consideration of a valuable sum of money to me in hand paid by Isaac Shepard, deceased, for the most part, and the remainder by Nathaniel Jewel, now married to the relict of the said Isaac Shepard of the aforesaid town,? deeded to ?the children of the said Isaac Shepard deceased ? part of my farm which I bought of Lieut. Joseph Wheeler ?, that is to say, one houselot ?, also the lower end of the long meadow ?, also part of the great meadow ?, all which parcels were in the possession of Isaac Shepard aforesaid, and occupied by him in the time of his life, also one-third part of my said farm yet undivided?; the children are stated to be ?Isaac Shepard, Mary Shepard and Samuel Shepard? [MLR 10:31].

    On 30 March 1708, ?William Power & Walter Power both of Concord? agreed to a division of land which ?they the said William Power & Walter Power have purchased ? of their two cousins, viz: Ralph Shepard and Jacob Shepard ? as may more fully appear by an instrument under the hand and seal of their said cousins hands & seals bearing date January the twenty-third last past? [MLR 14:562-64]. (William and Walter Power were grandsons of Ralph Shepard through his daughter Trial (Shepard) Power. Ralph and Jacob Shepard were grandsons of Ralph Shepard through his son Thomas [Shepard Fam 1:2].)

    BIRTH: About 1606 (aged 29 on 30 June 1635 [Hotten 97]).

    DEATH: Charlestown 20 August 1693, ?90? [ChVR 1:158]. (The tombstone at Malden has the following inscription: ?Here lyeth the body of Ralph Shephard, Aged 90, died September 11, 1693? [NEHGR 4:66].)
    MARRIAGE: St. Bride Fleet Street, London, 21 May 1632 Thankslord Perkins [TAG 67:29]. She died after 28 March 1675, when she acknowledged a deed [MLR 6:340].

    CHILDREN:

    1. SARAH SHEPARD, bp. Stepney, Middlesex, 6 August 1633 [Shepard Fam 1:2] (aged 2 on 30 June 1635 [Hotten 97]); sailed for New England with her parents in 1635; no further record.
    2. THOMAS SHEPARD, b. about 1635 (deposed on 24 November 1683 ?aged about forty-eight years? [EQC 9:124]); m. (1) Malden 19 November 1658 Hannah Ensign, daughter of THOMAS ENSIGN {1638, Scituate} [TAG 73:247-48]; m. (2) by 1700 Joanna _____ (on 16 March 1700, ?Thomas Shepard of Charlestowne ?, yeoman, and Johanna his wife? sold land in Charlestown to Jonathan Tufts of Medford [MLR 13:34]).
    3. ISAAC SHEPARD, b. Weymouth 20 June 1639; m. Concord 10 December 1667 Mary Smedley [CoVR 13], daughter of Baptist Smedley [GM 2:4:61].
    4. TRIAL SHEPARD, b. Weymouth 19 December 1641; m. Malden 11 March 1660[/1?] Walter Power. (On 2 April 1661, ?Walter Poor & Trial his wife being convicted of fornication by them committed together before marriage, the Court sentenceth him to be openly whipped with 15 stripes by the constable of Cambridge & to pay a fine of fifty shillings for his wife or else she to be whipped also. Ralph Shepard appearing in Court, acknowledged himself engaged to pay 50s. to the Treasuruer of this County in behalf of his son-in-law Walter Poor? [MCR 1:189; MCF Folio #28].)
    5. ABRAHAM SHEPARD, b. say 1647; m. Concord 2 January 1672[/3?] Judith Fillbrook [CoVR 16].
    6. THANKS SHEPARD, b. Malden 10 February 1650[/1?]; m. Chelmsford 13 December 1669 Peter Dill.
    7. JACOB SHEPARD, b. Malden [blank] June 1653; no further record.

    COMMENTS: Thomas Shepard, the second child of this immigrant, gave his age on 24 November 1683 as ?about forty-eight years? [EQC 9:124], which would place his birth about 1635. Since he was not included in the passenger list when his parents and older sister sailed for New England in June 1635, he would have been born soon after arrival, suggesting that Thankslord (Perkins) Shepard was pregnant when she crossed the Atlantic.

    Ralph Shepard attended the first town meeting for Dedham on 18 August 1636 (a meeting which was actually held in Watertown) and was present at several other such meetings in Watertown in late 1636 [DeTR 1:20, 21, 22], suggesting that he lived for his first two years in New England in Watertown, even though there is no surviving record for him in that town. (There is no documentary support for the claim by Pope and Chamberlain that he settled first at Charlestown [Pope 411; Weymouth Hist 4:630].) He was also an early signer of the town covenant [DeTR 1:3]. He was present at the first Dedham town meeting actually held in Dedham [DeTR 1:28] and continued to appear regularly at Dedham town meetings until 17 May 1639 [DeTR 1:29, 30, 32, 35, 38, 40, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53].

    Ralph Shepard moved from Dedham to Weymouth in 1639 (sale of land in Dedham and birth of child in Weymouth in that year) and was still there in early 1646, when he was fenceviewer. During this same period there are records for him at Rehoboth, but Ralph Hamilton Shepard concluded that the immigrant never resided at Rehoboth [Ralph Shepard Gen 8-11], and we concur with this assessment. On 10 January 1644[/5], the town of Rehoboth agreed ?that all of those that are underwritten who have forfeited their lots for not fencing, or not removing their families according to a former order made the 24th of the 8th month [October] 1643, therefore we do enter upon them for and in behalf of the town, to be disposed of as the town shall think meet?; ?Ralph Sheppard? was first in a list of eighteen men who forfeited their land [Early Rehoboth 2:134, citing ?Rehoboth Town Meetings, Book I, p. 37?].

    Some sources give Ralph Shepard sons John and Walter [Ralph Shepard 49-50; Weymouth Hist 4:630; DeHR 14:28]. There was a John Shepard of Concord who was the right age to have been a son of Ralph, but no record connects him with Ralph. Jacobus treats this John Shepard in a separate section and does not suggest any connection [Shepard 3:51-91].

    A Walter Shepard does appear in a few records. On 28 November 1661, ?Walter Shepheard, apprentice to the within named William Low,? agreed to become the apprentice of John Cromwell [MCF Folio #28]. William Low was of London and John Cromwell was perhaps the man of that name residing in Boston. On 5 March 1668/9, the selectmen of Sudbury reported to the court about ?Walter Shepard and James Tailer,? ?some young persons being complained of to us for some miscarriage? [MCF Folio #51]. Walter Shepard apparently came directly from England in 1661 or shortly before; no connection with Ralph Shepard is seen.

    On 17 December 1661, ?Mr. Joseph Hills, Abra[ha]m Hills & Ralph Shepheard, being presented for straitening the highway, the court ordered that they allow the highway in breadth according to what bounds they have been orderly laid out, & make satisfaction to the town for what they have taken from the same, provided that in no case the conveniency of travellers passage be interrupted? [MCR 1:199].

    On 2 April 1663, ?Abra[ha]m Shepard of Maulden, not appearing on summons to answer the presentment of the grand jury, is to pay the witnesses their costs being 16s. Ralph Shepard is to pay costs to Goodman Brackenbury & Jno. Greene eight shillings, the said Shepard being summoned to this court to give an account of his excusing his son?s non-appearance at last court. Execution granted for 24s. against the abovesaid Shepard and delivered to W[illia]m Brackenbury, 18.8.64 [18 October 1664]? [MCR 1:238].

    BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1893 Ralph Hamilton Shepard prepared a detailed account of this immigrant, supplemented by extensive verbatim extracts from the original sources [Ralph Shepard, Puritan (Dedham, Massachusetts, 1893)] (cited above as Ralph Shepard Gen).

    In 1903 Alice T. (Pickford) Brockway prepared an account of ?Ralph Shepard and Some of His Descendants,? unfortunately following only the line of John Shepard, for whom there is no evidence that he was a son of this immigrant [DeHR 14:27-31].

    In 1971 Gerald Faulkner Shepard and Donald Lines Jacobus published a genealogy of Ralph Shepard and his agnate descendants [The Shepard Families of New England, Volume I, ?Ralph Shepard of Dedham? (New Haven 1971)].

    Joan S. Guilford and John Brooks Threlfall published accounts of this immigrant in 1990 and 1993 respectively [Guilford Anc 727-31; GMC 26 275-81].

    In 1992 Penny G. Douglass published the record of the marriage of this immigrant [TAG 67:29].

  • Immigration: AFT 30 JUN 1635 Dedham, Norfolk, MA U. S. A.
  • Note:
    from Gene E. Perkins

    On 30 June 1635, Ralph Separd, aged 29, with his wife, Thanks, 23, and daughter Sara, 2, took passage for New England on the "Abigail," Robert Hackwell master. The family first settled in Dedham, MA, where Ralph signed the Covenant; where he attended town meetings on 18 Aug 1636 and 17 May 1639; and where he sold land 21 Aug 1639. Ralph Shepard next lived at Weymouth where he had children recorded in 1639 and 1641. Soon after, he lived a short time at Rehoboth where he was an original purchaser and attended a town meeting 31 Aug 1644 and in 1645. He then moved to Malden where he had children recorded in 1651 and 1652.
    He seems to have removed to Concord, MA, in 1665-66. On 25 Mar 1666, calling himself a tailor of Concord, he conveyed with his wife Thanks sixty acres to his son-in-law Walter Power.

    ---

    GM gives evidence that he and his family may have first settled at Watertown, MA.

    "Ralph Shepard attended the first town meeting for Dedham on 18 August 1636 (a meeting which was actually held in Watertown) and was present at several other such meetings in Watertown in late 1636 [DeTR 1:20, 21, 22], suggesting that he lived for his first two years in New England in Watertown, even though there is no surviving record for him in that town. (There is no documentary support for the claim by Pope and Chamberlain that he settled first at Charlestown [Pope 411; Weymouth Hist 4:630].) He was also an early signer of the town covenant [DeTR 1:3]. He was present at the first Dedham town meeting actually held in Dedham [DeTR 1:28] and continued to appear regularly at Dedham town meetings until 17 May 1639 [DeTR 1:29, 30, 32, 35, 38, 40, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53]."

      Title: The American Genealogist (TAG)

      For more than three quarters of a century, America's premier independent genealogical journal has been 'The American Genealogist,' affectionately known as TAG. TAG was founded in 1922 by Donald Line Jacobus (1887?1970), the father of scientific genealogy in this country and the first person elected to the National Genealogical Society's National Genealogy Hall of Fame. TAG was Jacobus?s vehicle for elevating genealogical scholarship to the same high standards as other scholarly disciplines, and it was at the center of what is now known as the ?Jacobus School,? a group of professional and amateur genealogists who were dedicated to these standards. Throughout its long career, TAG has emphasized carefully documented compiled genealogy and analyses of difficult genealogical problems, all directed toward providing serious genealogists with examples of how they too might solve such problems.
