    from CUTTER:

    Alexander Shapleigh, the immigrant ancestor, was born in Totnes, England, and sailed to America from Kingsweare, near Dartmouth, Devonshire, England, in his own ship, "Benediction," and in 1639, according to a deposition made by his servant, Thomas Jones, he was living near Sturgeon Creek, Maine. He was the first man to build a house on Kittery Point, Maine, as well as a warehouse on Piscataqua river, 1635. The records of the York court of 1650 say: "For as much as the house at river's mouth, where Mr. Shapleigh first bylt, and Hilton now dwelleth, in regard it was the first house bylt." Members of the family held offices of trust under the British Crown for successive generations, and they were rewarded by landed possessions which are still owned by members of the family, having been in the family for nearly three hundred years. Alexander Shapleigh probably died at Kittery about 1650. He was a merchant and ship-owner, and representative for Sir Ferdinando Gorges.

      His marriages are uncertain. Some sources list an Alexander Shapleigh marriage to Elizabeth Tellman in 1622, while others list an earlier marriage (name unknown) in 1597. Is it possible there's confusion with another Alexander Shapleigh, perhaps a son?

      (Reprint, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1996) ISBN 0806346124) Family Tree Maker CD #159


      Between 1913 and 1916, William Richard Cutter published four separate 4-volume series entitled New England Families, Genealogical and Memorial. The First Series, published in 1913 and reprinted by Clearfield Company in 1994 to an enthusiastic audience, featured genealogical and biographical essays on nearly 1,000 New England families. The Third Series (1915) is comprised of nearly 1,000 additional New England genealogical and biographical essays not found in the First Series and promises to enable New England researchers to investigate 1,000 additional lineages and nearly 10,000 New England ancestors unique to it. Each genealogical sketch offers a derivation or origin for the surname of that essay. The family history is traced forward from the oldest known ancestor of the line to the family member (living or memorialized) featured in the sketch, for whom, in turn, a biography--often with photograph--is provided. This is followed, frequently, by additional, collateral lines linked to the subject of the essay. It should be emphasized that many of these lineages go back to 16th-century England, still others brim with Mayflower connections, yet on the whole constitute a totally unique assemblage of New England families. Finally, the name index found at the back of the last volume identifies the nearly 10,000 principal descendants of the main families treated. (1915
