David Annis


Hopkinton and Bath, N.H.

Editor's note: Dr. Currier's genealogy is rather accurate as compared with existing records. Any corrections I have made are note with "Comment" and are in blue text. Brackets [ ] are used by Dr. Currier for his original comments. Generally, spelling is original with a few exceptions where there are obvious typographical errors. Some given names are given different spellings such as: "Mahitable" for "Mehitable"; "Betsey" for "Betsy"; etc. These spellings were left intact.




DAVID ANNIS' early history is very meagre. It is now quite well established that he was a son of Daniel of Warner, N.H. However, I think it essential to clear up some obscure points, and correct some errors that have been put into print. Ex-Gov. Harriman in his History of Warner, N.H., stated that Daniel Annis who settled in that town in 1762, " had not less than four sons and three daughters. The sons were, Daniel Jr., Thomas, Moses, and Solomon, and the daughters were Hannah (Mrs. Kimball), Rachel and Ruth." It was always understood among the children, and grandchildren, of David Annis, that he was the son of Daniel of Warner. I wrote to Ex-Gov. Harriman, before his death, stating that he had left my grandfather, David, out of the list of Daniel's children in his book, also stating that the traditions existing in all the families of David's descendants. He replied that he thought I was correct, and that his history was not written to be an exact genealogical work, and that my claim that there was a David in Daniel's family was proven beyond controversy.

My mother used to relate to me her visit, with my grandmother, to Hopkinton, Warner, and New London, N.H., on horseback, to see her aunts, Kimball, Flood, and Watkins. She was named Rachel, after her aunt Rachel who married Daniel Flood. David Annis had a son named Nathaniel Flood, after a near relative of Rachel's husband, possibly a son.

An epitaph in an old grave yard. a few rods south of the "Narrows", in the town of Bath, N.H., reads as follows: "David Annis died August 18, 1824 aged 70 years." This places his birth in 1753 or 1754. From 1745 to 1757 Daniel Annis was living at Rumford, now (1909) Concord, N.H., on the east side of the Merrimack river, near the old Fort. It was there where David Annis was born. In 1757 Daniel Annis moved to Hopkinton, and from there to Warner, N.H., in 1762, where he died in 1790.

My mother told me that her grandfather Annis married Keren Happuck Thomas. But the records state that he married Catherine Thomas. This discrepancy I leave for future genealogists to unravel.

I am unable to learn much of David's whereabouts up to 1777. The exact date of his marriage to Elizabeth Hunt is not definitely known. Family tradition says, his three oldest children were born in Warner as follows: Webster D., April 18, 1777; David, June 14, 1779; and Joseph D., April 22, 1782. Elizabeth, the fourth child, and the last of the first wife's children, family tradition says, was born in Hopkinton, N.H., Nov. 19, 1784. Soon after the birth of Elizabeth, David's first wife died, date unknown. Within a few months after his first wife's death, he married Lois Hunt, a cousin of his first wife, date unknown. Three children were born to them in Hopkinton: Asa, Feb.4, 1786; Nathaniel Flood, Oct. 3, 1788; and Eunice, April 9, 1791.

In 1790 the first census of the United States, gives the name of David Annis as the head of a family, in Hopkinton, N.H., it also gives the right number in his family, but the numbers in the male and female columns are reversed. There were 5 males under the age of 16 years, and 2 females including the heads of the family in David's family in 1790, (the first David having died previous to taking the census), but the figures in the two columns became interchanged in the census report.

What time David Annis moved to Chelsea, Vt., is uncertain, but it must have been previous to the birth of Rachel, on June 27, 1793. In the records of the town of Chelsea, Vt., there were reported 8 children born "to David Annis and Lois his wife." No date is given to the report, not even dated when received, nor is there a name attached to it, other than that of the town clerk. We give an exact copy of the report in the second part of this work. Here is another error, Lois was not the mother of the first four children.

In May 12, 1794, Joseph Perkins sold a piece of land to David Annis of Chelsea, Vt., and on Feb. 27, 1797, sold the same to Elihu Hyde Jr., giving his residence as Lebanon, N.H. The deed was not signed by his wife. It seems that he had previously moved to Lebanon with a view of settling there, and that the piece of land in Chelsea had ceased to be considered a homestead, not requiring his wife's signature. The date of his moving to Lebanon is not known. Was he the David, son of Daniel?

Some time in 1797 David Annis moved to Bath, N.H., where his son Cummings S., was born that same year. Here he continued to reside until his death in 1824. The name of Annis is spelled ten different ways in the Essex County records: Anes, Aness, Anies, Aniss, Annes, Annice, Annies, Annise, Anniss and Annis.

Curmac, alias Charles Annis, was born in Enniskillen, Ireland in 1638, came to America, and was living in Newbury, Mass., in 1666. He married Sarah Chase May 15, 1666; died Dec. 19, 1717. She died before 1726.

They had eight children born to them in Newbury: Joseph, 1666. Abraham, Aug. 18, 1668. Aquilla, June 6, 1670; died April 17, 1672. Isaac, April 12, 1672. Sarah, married Orlando Bagley of Amesbury (published March 25, 1704); both were living in 1726. Priscilla, Nov. 8, 1677; married William Godfrey before 1706; both were living in 1726. Hannah, Nov. 15, 1679; married Ephraim Weed before 1706; both were living in 1726. Anne. Dec. 28, 1681; married George Worthen before 1706; they were living in 1726. "Hannah Annis of Newbury published to Thomas Worthen of Amesbury May 11, 1700."

Abraham, (Charles), lived in Newbury until 1736. Moved to Haverhill in 1737. When the state line was run in 1741 his farm was brought into Salem, N.H. Comment: Dr. Currier has confused Abraham Annis and his son Abraham Annis Jr. {1708} here. It was actually the junior Abraham Annis' farm that was "brought into Salem, NH". Abraham Sr. died in 1738. He married Hannah ______, before 1693-4, and had ten children born to them in Newbury: Charles, Feb. 10, 1693-4. Elizabeth, in 1695. Hannah, March 20, 1698; married Benjamin Rollins of Newbury Nov. 20, 1716. John, May 1, 1700. Stephen, Feb. 1, 1701-2. Sarah, Sept. 9, 1703. Abraham, March 4, 1708. Daniel, Dec. 1, 1711; married Catherine Thomas of Newbury Aug. 1, 1732; and probably lived in Methuen, yeoman, in 1741. [His grand-daughter Rachel Annis said her given name was Keren Happuck]. Tabitha, March 5, 1713; married Daniel Woodman of Newbury, March 9, 1737-8. Anne, June 21, 1715.

Daniel, (Abraham, Charles), of Warner, N.H.; born Dec. 1, 1711; died 1790. Married Catherine Thomas Aug. 1, 1732, and had the following children born to them: Solomon; Moses; Daniel Jr.; David, 1753 or 1754; Thomas; Hannah, 1740, married, 1762, Reuben Kimball; Rachel, married Daniel Flood; Ruth, married Abner Watkins. [I am greatly indebted to the Essex Antiquarian, and to Ex-Gov. Harriman's History of Warner, for many of the foregoing genealogical facts. Author].
