PEDIGREE

 

wager2070

 

William and his family left London between 1-6 APR 6, 1635 aboard the Hopewell. The name on the ship list was "Purryer" or "Parryer." The ship list says "William Parryer of Oney 36, his wife Alyce 37,and their children Mary (Purryer) 7, Sarra (Purryer) 5, and Kathren (Purryer) 18 months." He was a deputy and judge in Southold.

 

He originally settled at Ipswich where he had a house lot in 1638; was also at Salisbury. On March 12, 1641, a William "Purrier" was witness to a sale of land between Barnabas Horton of Ipswich and Moses Pengry of Ipswich, wherein Horton sold Pengry 6 acres of land in Ipswich, north of the river. William was a Freeman of CT in 1662 and eventually settled at Southold, Long Island.

 

Before moving to Southold, he apparently made a trip to North Carolina (i.e., "Chowan Country"):

 

"March ye 18th, 1638

Swearinge be Ye Holy Evangelists that he with his now father-in-law William PURRIER, and his brother in law, James REEVE did go adventuring in ye Chowan Country for sperrits resin in ye yeare 1636 and there did meet William SALMON, Thomas REEVE, Thomas TERRILL, Thomas BENEDICT, Henery WHITNEY and others who had come hither from ye Summer Isles and ye said adventure failinge through ye overplus of adventurers, who had come hither prior to their coeing. They did set sale with one SUNDERLAND to a country the said SUNDERLAND had from his master one James FFARRETT by letters patent from ye Earle of Starlinge. And ye said OSMAN does farther depose that ye said company with others whose names he has forgotten did set downe on ye necke called Hashammomack and did ingage in distillinge sperrits resin from ye trees in ye greate swampe and further SUNDERLAND, SALMON, WHITNEY, and BENEDICT did from ye beginning owne ye said necke in equal shares and did so from our first sittingse down in year 1636-7.

Signed:

Thomas OSMAN

in ye presence of:

Barnabas HORTON
Thomas MOOR"

An abstract of his will is as follows:

 

"WILLIAM PURRIER, of Southold, "In perfect health of body," makes his grandson James Reeve, "now living with me," his sole executor, and desires him to take his mother, my eldest daughter Mary Reeve, into his family and provide for her during life. If she refuse, then he is to pay her 20 Nobles yearly.

"I leave to my two youngest daughters, Sarah Mapes and Martha Osmun 20 each.
To Isaac Reeve who now lives with me, two oxen.
To my grandchild Mary Wyndes, one cow.
To Thomas Terrill who married my grand daughter Mary Reeve, two acres of land by his dwelling house.
To grand son James Reeve all my dwelling house, lands and meadows."

Dated December 13, 1671. Witnesses Nicholas Eades, John Youngs. James Reeve is confirmed as executor May 13, 1676
