     In 1683 Stephen became murderously jealous of his wife and John Bickford, Jr., at which time Stephen's brother John Willey protected her. In 1689 she and two of her daughters went to Canada as captives and remained there.

After Stephen's death between 1696 and 1700, Abigail married in Canada 6 Oct. 1710, Edward de Flecheur.4 Stephen was born at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire, circa 1649.1 He married Abigail Pittman before 1671 at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire.1,5 Stephen Willey lived circa 1671 at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire. He lived on the homestead at Oyster River Point.



Being about to go to sea in 1697 he made a deed of gift, equivalent to a will, giving the farm at the Point to his son, Thomas, and naming also a daughter, Abigail. This deed was recorded 27 Jan. 1700. It is probable that Stephen was then deceased.1 He died before 27 January 1700 at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire.1

     On 30 June 1764, the Court commanded the sheriff to attach the goods, estate or person of Benjamin Wheeler, Blacksmith, of Durham, to appear at the next session of court on the first Tues. of Sept. On 15 May 1764, Benjamin Wheeler, in a note, promised to pay Samuel Hill, husbandman of Durham and a minor, 40 pounds old tenor, on his order, with interest at 15% per annum, for value before received. Benjamin had so far refused to pay any portion thereof. Eliphalet spoke at court for his son, Samuel.

Samuel, of Rochester, NH, sold land to Jeremiah Berry of Barrington, NH, on 18 Mar 1783. He sold one third of Lot 39 in the Second Division of Lots in Rochester, being the lot granted to the first ordained minister in Rochester. The land lay just at the Barrington line. The purchase was witnessed by Eliphalet Hill, Joshua Otis, Jr., and Samuel Foss.

Samuel, of Barrington, NH, sold 80 acres from Lot 48, Range 2, Div. 2 (near Jonathan Hill's pastures) to Jonathan Roberts and William Sanders on 19 Aug 1797 for $700.

Samuel, of Barrington, NH, sold land in Lot 48, Range 2, Div. 2 to Joseph Hill, of Barrington, NH, on 14 Feb 1797. The family came from Barrington, NH, and in 1799, the whole family, father, mother, children, spouses, and any grandchildren went to Barnston, Stanstead County, Quebec, Canada. They did not all go at the same time.

From the Blue Hills Foundation, P. 25, given to me by Robert S. Leighton in 1988. Roger was a descendant of Henry Hill and Hannah Drew, and he lived in Barrington. "90 acres of Lot #48 bought in 1783 by Samuel Hill of Rochester, with the house presumably west of the road, Son Joseph picked up more land in the lot, certainly lived there, but sold out all rights west of the road in 1805 to James Bodge. There the records stop, but a mystery remains. Where would a house be located on the rough and rocky Lot 48? One certainly did, at least for a few early years.

Mr Leighton also said that The Peaslee, Holmes and Locke families also lived in the Blue Hill section of Strafford, which was part of Barrington until 1820. A Williams family lived next to the Locks and Grays. That covers a great many of the families that Samuel's children married into.

Barnston, PQ, Land Records - Joseph Bartlett Sr. appeared before a notary at St. Armand, PQ, with a letter dated Jan 1799, stating that he was acting as attorney for William Kent. He stated that he sold to Samuel Hill for 25 pounds, Lot 10 in the 8th Range of Barnston, which comprised 200 acres, at Bartlett's home on 14 Sept 1801.

Samuel Hill, of Barnston, bought from Nathaniel Walker, for 25 pounds, Lot 9 in the 8th Range, on 28 April 1823. There was also something written about some land from Augustus Hibbard, dated 18 June 1818. Vol. 5, Barnston Land Records.4 Samuel was born at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire, circa 1744.1 He married Patience Meader say 1763 at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire.4 Samuel Hill lived in 1774 at Rochester, Strafford, New Hampshire.3 He lived on 18 March 1783 at Rochester, Strafford, New Hampshire.4 He lived on 19 August 1797 at Barrington, Strafford, New Hampshire.4 He lived in January 1799 at Barnston, Stanstead, Quebec, Canada.4 He died after 28 April 1823 at probably, Barnston, Stanstead, Quebec, Canada. On this date he purchased land in Barnston.1

     The Patience Meader, whose pedigree I have presented here is only conjecture based on possible known facts. It should not be taken as being cast in stone.4 Patience was born at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire, say 1743. She is herewith added as a daughter of Joseph and the widow Martha Appleby, by tradition, which is the way she is listed in the Durham History.

I suspect that, if she is the Patience who married Samuel Hill, she was born say 1743..2,4 She married Samuel Hill say 1763 at Durham, Strafford, New Hampshire.1 As of 1763,her married name was Hill.1 Patience Meader died after 1784 at probably, Barnston, Stanstead, Quebec.1

    Joseph Meader, son of Joseph Meader (1681-1759) [0005] and Charity Nason (b.1682), was born on Nantucket October 24, 1719, and he died at Rochester, NH in 1796 at 77 years of age. He moved to Durham, NH with his family in 1724 and was living there in 1763. He was a farmer and carpenter. His wife, Widow Martha (Marshall) Appleby, had a son Thomas by her first marriage, who lived in England in 1763.
    He was considered wealthy, and after the English custom he left all his property to his eldest son, George [0041], who squandered it and was reduced to beggary. Joseph Meader spent his last days with his son, Joseph [0042].

ChartsThelma L. Gray Pedigree Chart
     In the published sources [Durham History, etc.], Eliphalet is shown as being the son of Henry, who was the son of William and Judith. However. Eliphalet's supposed baptism in 1720 could not have happened if he was the son of Henry, because Henry did not marry Hannah Drew until 1729.

In Vol. 1 of Durham, NH, records, it shows Eliphalet Hill attending town meetings in March 1739, 1741,1747,1762, and a later one which was unreadable. It also shows a purchase on 30 July 1741 by Eliphalet and Henry Hill of land lying at the head of ------- Creek, (probably Bunker Creek) This is all that could be read of these items on microfilm.)

On 19 April 1766 had called to court for Sept Benjamin Chadbourn, of Berwick, ME, and Mary Chesley, of Durham, NH, executors of the will of Jonathan Chesley, deceased, because of 23 pounds 19 shillings, owed to him by Jonathan. Attached was a bill from Eliphalet to Jonathan from 5 Jan 1862. The bill contained an old balance, several items which I cannot read, money due for work performed, a yoke of oxen, a load of wood, a bushel of corn, and a gondolow of wood.

On 9 Feb 1767 James Gilmore, Esq., and his wife Deborah, of Durham, and Daniel Meserve, Gent, of Madbury, went before the justice of peace to make a complaint, against Eliphalet Hill, husbandman, Jerusha his wife, and Samuel Hill, laborer. That they did on 22 Oct and 18 Nov last, by force of arms purloin and carry away out of the possession of your complainant three ox hides valued at twenty shillings each, a cow hide at 15 shillings, 10 sheep at 10 shillings each, 9 geese at 3 shillings each, one chair at 20 shillings, 30 bushels of corn at 3 shillings each, and 30 bushels of apples at 1 shilling and 10 pence each. The complainant asked that Eliphalet, Jerusha and Samuel be apprehended and be brought to justice as the law directs. The court gave a warrant for officials to apprehend Eliphalet, Jerusha and Samuel, and bring them to court. The officials were ordered to break and enter to secure them if necessary.

On 20 Feb, Eliphalet and Samuel Hill, Lemuel Meader of Durham, and Seth Jacobs, of Madbury, all yeoman, appeared before the court and recognized themselves indebted to the court for 20 pounds. Lemuel and Seth were surety for the debt. Eliphalet, Jerusha and Samuel had also to appear at the next session of the court, in March, to answer the charges of James and Deborah Gilmore and Daniel Meserve against them, concerning items belonging to the estate of Joseph Smith, of Durham, deceased.

On 12 Feb 1767, the Sheriff of NH was commanded by James and Deborah Gilmore, of Durham and Daniel Meserve of Madbury, to attach the goods and estate of Eliphalet Hill, of Durham, to the value of 100 pounds or to hold him for the court of common pleas, to be held at Portsmouth, NH, the third Thurs. in March. The complaint was that on 14 Jan 1762. Eliphalet Hill signed a note agreeing to pay Joseph Smith, since deceased, 30 pounds on demand at 10 per cent annual interest, for services received, which he did not do. Also at the insistence and request of Eliphalet Hill, Joseph and Eliphalet jointly signed at note agreeing to pay Thomas Wallingford, Esq., 38 pounds on demand at 12 ½ annual interest. Joseph Smith had paid his share, but since Eliphalet had not done so, the executors of Joseph's estate had to pay off the debt to Wallingford on 11 Feb of the current year. Eliphalet stated that he had not promised in manner and form aforesaid. However. his land was attached on 12 Feb 1767, also a quarter part of a grist mill and a gondolow lying in the Durham River.

During 1767 and 1768 Eliphalet and Samuel Dyer Took each other to court over goods and services. There is a bill from Eliphalet to Samuel concerning cotton wool, salt, rum, cyder, 1 scythe, milk pans and bottles, salt fish, sugar, men for unloading your gondolow, sundries, and bringing down a load of stone.

Eliphalet sold his home land to Eliphalet Daniel, of Portsmouth, and Lemuel Meader, of Durham, yeoman, on 2 May 1767. The land was bounded northerly, by the road from his premises to the road leading to Dover, easterly, by the land of Ephraim Davis, southerly, by the land of John Williams, and westerly, by Bunkers Creek.

On 2 June 1767, Eliphalet Hill and Samuel Meader jointly and severally agreed to cause to be paid twenty pounds to Samuel Dyer. Eliphalet bought the land back on 9 Jan 1768. I believe that it was a mortgage so that he could pay his debts.

On 1 Dec 1767 Daniel Meader, of Durham, made a complaint against Eliphalet, Jerusha and Samuel Hill, and Ruth Meader, wife of Samuel Meader, all of Durham, He stated that on 1 May of that year and diverse other days, the above named persons did with force of arms menace and threaten the complainant, and he was afraid that they would do him bodily injury.

This concerned the sale of land by William Hill to James Bunker, cordwained, on 26 Nov 1746. Bunker stated that when Hill sold him the land, he was not the sole and lawful owner of the premises. Bunker made an action of ejectment against William Colewell, who was in possession of the land, by virtue of a deed given to him by the plaintiff. Judgment was given for Bunker, but he wanted to claim, but he wanted to claim 50 pounds from William Hill's estate for his court costs. Eliphalet came to court and said that he was never executor of William Hill's testament, nor administered in any manner of form upon it.
