Boynton Guest Book Volume 8 entries 891 - 959 (June 1, 2007 - June 30, 2009)
- [Boynton] June 21, 2007 --- "Lewis Boynton" --- Hello Douglas, My name is Darcy Lewis Boynton. I was looking at your site and I couldn't find any direct connection to my family tree (at least no names I recognize). I was curious if you know whether we fit in there somehow. Below is a brief "tree" of mine. My:
Grandfather = Lewis Boynton (Sault Ste. Marie) ; Grandmother = Margaret Parr and they had 13 children including Leonard, David, Sandra , Lesley, Margaret, Kathy (thats all I can remember right off my head)
Father = David Edward Boynton ; Mother = Debra Marie-Ann Folz and they had Darcy (Me), Christopher, and Bradley.
If you know any connection or whether we "fit the puzzle" with your family tree let me know and I can see what other information I can get for you.
Darcy Boynton --- email: dbox123 (at) gmail.com
Darcy - I'm sorry that I've not been able to find anything that makes sense. The Lewis Boynton listings that I see in the 1896 Boynton family history were born around 1837 which seems too early and they were typically in Maine or Ohio not Michigan. If you do learn anything more (or have earlier ancestor information) please keep me posted. Best regards - Doug
- [Boynton] June 24, 2007 --- "Boynton family in Canada" --- Hi. Have looked at your interesting website. I am wondering about the Boyntons who were in Canada , probably in the late 1700's. I have seen them. My family was there at the same time. Also Sheldons, Borlands, Lovejoys. Would like to know if you have any information about this period in Canada. Thank you Patsy --- email: DIXANDER (at) aol.com
July 21, 2007 --- Patsy - Thanks for your message. I'd certainly be interested in posting any Boynton details that you have from Canada. Because my 1896 reference book is organized by name and date, I have no way to gain access to information associated with geographical location unless I know the person of interest first.
Best regards - Doug
July 21, 2007 ---
Do you have access to Ancestry.com? Seems like I saw some of it there. I think a Boynton Married a Lovejoy. If I can't find it I can copy it and send to you from my copy. Patsy
July 21, 2007 ---
I would very much prefer to get an electronic copy of the material so I don't have to retype everything. I don't know what you're looking for so if you can find it and email it that would be great.
Regards - Doug
July 24, 2007 --- "Boynton family in Canada update" ---
Hi. I will give you the sources and you can try to get them from that. If you are not successful, let me know and I will copy the entire information.
CousinConnect.com Query 39885 posted in 2003. Regarding Boynton, Burdick, Byington, Nichols, and Sheldon http://www.cousinconnect.com/d/a/39885 This is very interesting.
At the end there is a list of more links.
http://home.comcast.net/~bennabre/boynton.htm This is section III of related familys to Lovejoy. says nothing about Canada, but informative.. You may have this
http://home.comcast.net/~bennabre/index8a.htm This is section II The Nathan Lovejoy and Molly Boynton of Newbury, Ma. are the couple who went to Canada
on a site called Children of the Daughters page 5-of 72 There is a paragraph or two on the Boyntons. I see that the page doesn't have the address at the bottom,
Ancestry.com has a family Nathan lovejoy and Mary Boynton. http://trees.ancestry.com/owt/person/aspx?pid=23547306
The Boyntons that I have found in Canada were in connection to Lovejoys. Patsy
- [Boynton] July 5, 2007 --- "found Boynton" --- Our family found another member of the Boynton family because of this site. I'd like to thank you. West Coast Boynton's. --- email: r-smothershead (at) sbcglobal.net
Ronald - That is great news - thanks for telling me. I'm glad that we helped. - Doug
- [Boynton] July 20, 2007 --- "Angenette L. Boynton" --- The Angenette L. Boynton who married George Hamlin Stetson was b. ca 1853. She appears only once, as a single white woman, in the 1870 census taken 13 Jul, in Glenburne, Penobscot Co., ME, called "Nettie". She was residing in the family of Frank Ames at the time. Also ennumerated was an Eva ______ ...probably a Boynton, b. 1866. She (Angenette) was residing there as late as 23 Jan 1872. I have searched Ancestry's on-line census records of the U.S. for other mention of Angenette "Nettie" Boynton, and failed to find any earlier reference of her. This leads me to belive she was b. elsewhere, probably some place in what is now Canada, perhaps in Nova Scotia?.
She deserted her husband and young family of 3 ch.
One Nettie L. Boynton, dau. of Amos A. Boynton, "b. Aug 1866 in California"is said by a Rootsweb submitter to have married a Robert Edward STURDIVANT. The submitter claims her to be another person (not the one who married George Hamlin Stetson.) There are no census records for this Nettie as a single person.
Does anyone have a record of a Nettie/ Angenette b. in Canada?
Thanks, Eugene W. Hubbard --- Email: hubfam (at) peoplepc.com
- [Boynton] July 21, 2007 --- "Boynton Castle, Walter de Boynton, Christopher Boynton" --- I discovered a web site that describes the Boynton Castle's relationship to the Boynton family: http://www.boyntons.us/yorkshire/stories/aliceinheritance.html and created a backup link to a pdf file copy of the web page: www.quine.org/pr-7919-boynton-castle.pdf - Doug
- [Boynton] September 11, 2007 --- "Jane Bonyton, daughter of John Bonyton" --- Hi Doug, My name is Patty Bancroft Roberts, The first of my family that arrived in the new world was John Bancroft b 1592, Warston-on-Trent, Derby, Eng. and his wife was Jane Bonyton, daughter of John Bonyton. John was born in Curry, Cornwall, Eng./Eleanor Myllaton also in Curry.
You might want to go into OneGreatFamily.com to take a look at what is in there if you don't know about the site. If you decide to join..please mention my name as I get a month free! http://www.onegreatfamily.com It is amazing what they have and how quickly it has grown. I didn't have much on my Bonyton line as Jane is my only connection except through some of my lines further up like Lovejoy's, etc.on my grandmother Smith Bancroft's side. OneGreat Family has added information to my site on Bonyton's going back to 1338. I haven't checked the "proof" to see how accurate it is but it sure is fun reading it all.
Just though you might like to know about the site if you weren't aware of it. I ran into your pages just scrolling around and it is very well done and interesting. I would have liked to have seen an index of surnames. You may have had one but I didn't find it.
Patty - Thanks for your message. I'm curious about the spelling "Bonyton". Our family name is Boynton. When I checked on Google, it seemed that some of the entirews for "Bonyton" were actually typographical errors for Boynton (for example, Boynton Beach, Florida). Also, I checked my history book and the John Boynton that I know about who came to America in 1638. He was born in Yorkshire and married Ellen Pell of Boston. Best regards - Doug
- [Boynton] September 13, 2007 --- "Question regarding Torchil (any connection to Thorkell the Tall)" --- Has anyone researched the possibility of our Torchil being the son or grandson of Thorkell the Tall? Has this been ruled out? Please advise. Cindy Boynton Dodd
Cindy - I must admit that I'm unfamiliar with Thorkell the Tall. Is there any reason to believe that he might be an ancestor? My references all end at Torchill. Best regards - Doug
Its purely coincidental but I thought it worthy of research if no one has ruled it out. Thorkell was a Dane mercenary in the late 900's until his death at approximately 1023. He was married to one of the daughters of King Aethelred the Unready at the time of the Dane truce with the English (1012 I think). He played a role in collecting the danegeld and had some association with Eadric Streona. This could explain how he funded the 62 manors. Thorkell did have a fleet of over 40 ships. He had a son that was raised as a Brit and his mother in law (wife of King Aethelred the Unready) was Emma de Normandy. This could explain the norman influence of naming a child/grandchild Bartholemeu/Bartholemew. I am writing this purely from memory so please forgive me if there are errors in dates, etc. As previously stated, it is purely coincidental but I was curious to know if anyone else had taken the time to research the possibility.
Aethelwine, sherriff of Warwick had a son named Thorkill. If I remember correctly, this person is tied to Lady Godiva. This Thorkill is also known as Thorkill de Arden and had two brothers Guthmund and Ketelbern. I am unable to find a Norman influence in this line but have not yet spent a great deal of time searching for one.
Since you and your family have an extensive library on the Boyntons and related research, I was hoping you had heard of research regarding this. If you are unfamilar with our Thorkells, surely there is a historian is our vast band of Boyntons. :-)
Cindy --- email: CindyD1079 (at) aol.com
-- October 1, 2007 --- Surely some of our cousins can help find the link. I really think this is the right path because there are Danes listed w/ Tochil's property in the Doomsday report. I am anxious to see what they come up with.
- [Boynton] September 17, 2007 --- "Charles Fletcher was born in Boynton" --- I came across this email adress on google earth. My name is Joseph B. Fletcher Sr. and my father, Charles Fletcher was born in boynton. I would like to know if you have any information on my family's history? Any help would be appreciated since I know almost nothing about my family heritage. By the way, my dad was born in 1920, thank you. --- Joe Fletcher --- email: theangler38 (at) yahoo.com
- [Boynton] September 26, 2007 --- "Coeur d'Alene, Idaho airport named after 'Pappy' Gregory Boyington, a World War 2 flying ace" --- Hello Doug, Just thought your readers may like to know about this honor for the Boyntons. My husband, Bob, and I now live near Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. There has been a controversy here on naming the airport after "Pappy" Gregory Boyington, a world war 2 flying ace. Finally this was recently done. It is now Coeur d' Alene Airport, Pappy Boyington Field. We are so glad to see him thus honored. Sandra and Robert Boynton
Congratulations, this is a well deserved honor. Pappy is one of my wife's heroes - and she didn't even know we were related! Regards - Doug
- [Boynton] September 26, 2007 --- "Boyntons from southern California: Philip Henry Boynton, son of William David Boynton" --- I have the honor to be Philip Henry Boynton, son of William David Boynton, son of Frederick King Boynton, son of Horace Rollin Boynton. More to the point, I have pictures of Horace Rollin Boynton Sr. and Jr. and of their offspring, dating back into the 19th century. Would this be of any help to anyone? --- Philip Henry Boynton --- email: philip42 (at) comcast.net
Thanks for your kind letter which I've added to the guest book. It is always fun to hear from another member of the extended family. I found three entries for Horace Boynton in my 1896 family history book but none of them had any information about his offspring. Do you by chance know his father's name to see if they are listing him?
Best regards - Doug
Douglas Boynton Quine (September 29, 2007)
October 1, 2007: --- Good Morning:
Horace Rollin Boynton, Senior' father was David Jewett Boynton, and I did not look in your books beyond the mention of my father, my uncles, and their father, Frederick King Boynton. My sudden interest in all of this is due to the imminent death of my mother, Margaret Ann Boynton, daughter of Henry Homes Boynton, the youngest of Horace Rollin Boynton's sons.
I'm sorry to hear about your mother.
I've checked my 1896 Boynton book and none of the Horace Boynton entries (I actually now found a total of 5) show a father named David Jewett Boynton (rather they show Job, Henry, Rufus, Elias, and John F Boynton).
Best regards - Doug (October 13, 2007)
Addendum (September 24, 2010): There are follow-up messages in entries #920 (from 2008) below and #979 (from 2010) in volume 9 of the Boynton guestbook http://www.quine.org/guestboy.html - Doug
- [Boynton] September 26, 2007 --- "West Boylston, Massachusetts teacher, Mrs. Boynton" --- Dear Douglas Quine: I just found your website after Googling "West Boylston, Massachusetts teacher, Mrs. Boynton." Was your maternal grandmother ever an elementary school teacher in West Boylston, Massachusetts (just outside of Worcester). If so, I have wonderful memories of her that I would love to share. These memories came to the surface yesterday during a fall conference on the "Spirit of Teaching" here in CT. Please respond at your leisure, and I will continue in kind. Sincerely, Mary Christian-Madden, currently in my 38th year in education, born 1946 (near your vintage). Thank-you very much. --- email: mchristian (at) ct.metrocast.net
Thanks for your note.
No, I'm afraid that your teacher could not have been my grandmother. By 1945 my grandmother, Alice Paine Boynton (aged 60), was living at 291 Liberty Street in Meriden, Connecticut where she lived until her death in 1983. The Boynton family came to Rowley, Massachusetts in 1638 so there are a large number of our relatives in New England - and teaching was a common occupation for them. I have a book of Boynton ancestors but it ends in 1896 so I can only look up information on people who were born before that date. I wonder if any readers knew her. If so, please write to the webmaster.
Best regards - Doug
Doug: Thank you for your prompt response. I will keep looking, probably in the West Boylston Town archives, as I know that when she retired she was lauded for her teaching longevity and expertise. Sincerely, Mary Christian-Madden
- [Boynton] September 30, 2007 --- "Annie Fields and Nathan S. Boynton" --- I am looking for information regarding Annie Fields, wife of Major Nathan S. Boynton. I have found her name spelled as Fields, Fielder and Fidelei. I am looking for her grave and have not found it in Port Huron, MI., Boynton Beach, FL or New Bremen / Auglaize County, OH. I found information that she was born in Bremen Germany and she was married in Cincinnati, OH so I put two and two together and tried New Bremen, OH. No luck ! If anyone has any information to share I would appreciate it. Dennis Smith - 2nd Great Grandnephew of Nathan. bumpatheman (at) yahoo.com
In my 1896 Boynton Family History book, I found the 3 and a half pages of biographical information and a photo (pages 80a-83) of Nathan S. Boynton who invented the Boynton Fire Escape and lived in Port Huron. Unfortunately there is no discussion of the fate of his wife (listed as Annie Fieldi).
Best regards - Doug
Thanks for your help Doug. Apparently you have added yet another spelling of her name, "Fieldi" to my list. Maybe some of your readers will be able to shed some light on the subject.
- [Boynton] October 1, 2007 --- "Boynton - Wadley connection" --- Hello,,
I stumbled upon you Boynton family genealogy page while looking for a
I figured it might be easier asking you than seaching for a link..
Do you know of any Wadley connections to the Boynton line?? I found a
item posted in an 1864 Watertown NY paper regarding Lovica Boynton and
a Mary Wadley, wife of James Wadley Jr., and Mardilla Boynton of
Watertown Jefferson County NY.
I'm working on a lateral Wadley line. The item from the paper is
somewhat blurry so somewhat hard to read. So any dates you may have
would be greatly appreciated.. just looking for a starting point and
line this Boynton descends from..
I'm guessing Lovica Boynton is mother of Mary B. Wadley and Mardille.
Also listed is a ?ebra Dean wife of Perry Dean of Rodman Jefferson
Ct.,Charles Boynton and William (brothers?) of Strawberry Pt. IA,
heirs of Darius M. Boynton of Watertown NY, deceased.
I think Mary Wadley's father was William Boynton..
It appears a will is available but not sure..
James Wadley,jr. of Watertown is married to a Mary. They had a son
Clinton Wadley. James Wadley is son of James Wadley sr., and Jane. of
Watertown. They are listed on 1850 census.
Any help with this greatly appreciated..
Sheilah --- email: --- SBILES (at) hvc.rr.com
Sheila - My resources also were unsuccessful in finding a link. I can find no reference to any Wadley family in my 1896 book nor is there a Lovica Boynton or a Mardilla Boynton. I'm hoping that one of our readers can help. Best regards - Doug
- [Boynton] October 1, 2007 --- "Alvira Boynton and family" --- Doug, I recently came across a "ROOTSWEB" reference to a David Boynton family of Hubbardston, Ma. Among the children are 2 brothers: (1) Daniel Boynton, b. 27 Nov. 1762 and (2) John Boynton, b. 2 Jan. 1765 who married a Mary ? and died in 1825 in Cornwall, Vt. These must be the 2 brothers I was asking you about in my earlier E-mail. According to "the History of Addison County, VT", page 428, John Boynton bought land in Cornwall, in 1798. This would seem to indicate that my ancestor Daniel Boynton/Boyington is the son of David Boynton and his wife Elizabeth.
"K. W. BENTLEY" wrote:
Doug, I have had problems tracking down one of my ancestors, one Daniel Boyington/Boynton of Williamstown, Ma. He married one Abiah Wright Towner on Oct. 13, 1787 in Williamstown. They had 3 children: Alvira, b. 1789; Sally, b. 1788 and Daniel, Jr. b. 1796. At that same time there was a John Boynton in Williamstown who married on April 7, 1791, Mary Smedley of Connecticut. Do You or anyone else know of a connection for these 2 Boyntons or anything at all about this Daniel????
Thanks in advance for any info.

Dear Mr. Quine: I was truly impressed with your web site. It was full of wisdom and of my last name. However, I am of African American, Native American Indian and Caucasian Descent. I once met a young lady (from Canada) at the University of Florida during a Maranatha Church Youth Group Study whose father was researching our last name. His research did reveal that we were related, even though the racial mixture was there. I regret not keeping in contact with her, after all these years. Angie Boynton - angeliaboynton (at) yahoo.com

Is he a descendant of John or William Boynton? Thank You, Craig Boynton, VP - sales / estimating, Glendale Fire Systems, Inc -- cboynton (at) glendalefiresystems.com
Hi Craig - Was your ancestor Baron E. Boynton (page 101 of the Boynton book) born in 1835 of Nathaniel Boynton and Charlotte Bowman? If so, the answer is John. The line goes back:
father - Nathaniel Boynton
GF - Ephraim Boynton
GGF - Col. John Boynton
GGGF - Ephraim Boynton
GGGGF - Joseph Boynton
GGGGGF - Joseph Boynton
GGGGGGF - John Boynton
Best regards - Doug
Thanks for the quick response. From what I know he is Baron E. Boynton (born
in NY) married to Mary Boynton (maiden name - Albany, born in Ohio). They
had (4) sons and (1) daughter:
Elmer W. Boynton
Hattie A. Boynton
Charles L. Boynton
Clarence Sheldon Boynton

------ Charles Sheldon Boynton (dad)
--------- Craig Allen Boynton (me)
------------ Trevor Allen Boynton (my son 16 yrs)
George E. Boynton
What is the best way to find out specific information about my relatives?
Who they were etc.
Hi Craig - The first question is to determine whether the dates make him the right one. Unfortunately my book ends with him so I cannot provide any more recently matching material for you. If he is the right one, I can scan the pages referencing your ancestors going backwards - but it will take a few days as I'm in the middle of two massive projects right now. Best regards - Doug
Hi Doug, Thank you for your help. I just ordered: The Boynton family, A genealogy of the descendants of William and John Boynton. Your web site has been very helpful and I appreciate your efforts. Thank You, Craig Boynton
Craig - The book is a wonderful resource and they have a long discussion of at least one of your ancestors (Col. John Boynton had 120 great grandchildren at the time of his death). With page 101 as the starting point, you'll be able to trace backwards easily. Have fun. Best regards - Doug

I collect postcards, and I am trying to figure out if a series of postcards in my possession are locally produced. By the stamp box, they are Canadian/British, and the only other identifying ID is "Post card by Boynton and Eaton, Reston" There is a Reston, Manitoba, but also a Reston, Virginia. Do you have any clues as to the location of this "Boynton"? Any help is greatly appreciated, and best wishes with your family website, I am jealous!

Darcy - Sorry for the very long delay in responding to your question. Today I saw reference to a Boynton and Eaton postcard from Reston, Manitoba. The subject matter also makes it clear that it pertains to Canada and not Virginia. I attach the details from an eBay postacard sale listing.

Hello just trying to figure out were i truly came from My name is
Steven charles McNeil but I was adopted. My birth name is "Steven Charles Boynton II" and
someone said that I was related to Lord Boynton and I never met you
and your probably not him but i was born in 1988 on October 3rd
so just want to truley know Steven McNeil -- stemcn88 (at) gmail.com
Steven - My apologies for the long delay in responding to the message. I've been swamped. My Boynton family history book was published in 1896 and therefore only contains the names of people were born about 10 years before that date. If you can find names of relatives that long ago then it might be possible to find them there. Our Boynton web site http://www.quine.org/boynton.html does contain a lot of the early history of the Boynton family dating back about 42 generations and nearly 1,000 years. Best regards - Doug
- [Boynton] November 11, 2007 ---- "William Mclean Boynton" --- I am searching for information on William Mclean Boynton, b ? d 1876 (He is my g.g. g. father)
He is a son of the well known minister of this era Charles Brandon Boynton and he is brother of Henry Van Ness Boynton.
William married Eleanor Kellogg, in Cincinnattie OH
They lived on the eastern shore of Maryland during the civil war, in or near a town called Potters Landing (later Williston)
He died in maryland, apparently of tuberculosis. Family history says there was a failed land deal that had something to do with a railroad line (that William Boynton had the contract to build the rail line, at least through his own property, but the rail line failed and he lost his money) The failed deal dealt a blow he never recovered from healthwise.
I have found frequent mention of a "Dr. Boynton" who gives frequent lectures in Baltimore during the right timeperiod. I've also located an article on a William Boynton (referenced also as "Dr Boynton" in a baltimore newspaper article) who was implicated in an apparent arson in Roxbury, MA (appleton buildings). Dr. Boynton seems to have been tried but acquitted of this crime.
Eleanor Kellogg Boynton moved to Washington, DC after her husband's death, and worked in the US Treasure office. She also died, and her children were "farmed out" to various relatives. It is this disbursal that leads to the loss of information.
Anything helpful would be much appreciated. Your site is quite informative. Thanks. Edie Rose Allison, Department of Health Policy and Administration --- ear14 (at) psu.edu
Dear Edie - I apologize for the long delay in responding to your message. I've been swamped.
My Boynton family history book has a page devoted to "Charles Brandon Boynton, D.D. This is a "stand alone" page that isn't clearly linked into the descendants of John and William Boynton who immigrated to America in 1638. The book says that Charles Brandon Boynton was born in Berkshire County MA in 1806. It shows him as having 4 children:
1. General Henry Van Ness Boynton
2. Charles Augustus Boynton
3. Mary Emma Boynton
4. Ann Clarissa Boynton
Unfortunately, I can't find reference to William Mclean Boynton (or any William M. Boynton). Both of the Kelloggs mentioned in the book are men so that didn't help either. There are too many William Boynton entries (about 55) without middle initials for me to search.

- [Boynton] November 26, 2007 ---- "another branch of the Boynton tree" --- Greetings Cousin, I googled Boynton over the holiday weekend and discovered your website. Thankyou for putting it out there. Its always fun to see information about the ancestors. My own foray into the geneology was a result of a high school family tree project. My grandmother (Mary McCall Allen) had a copy of the Geneology of the descendants of William and John Boynton on her bookshelf as well as a wealth of knowledge about the most recent generations. Before she passed away she wrote a short memoir of her life and passed the family records on to my aunts and uncles. It doesn't contain any additional information about the Boynton line. One note about the family tree on your website. Item #24 lists the date of death for Joshua Boynton but it is left as a question mark in Item #23. Here is the line from our branch of the tree. We branch off at Joshua Boynton (Mar 10 1646 - Nov 12 1736) with the marriage to Hannah Barnet and son William.

- [Boynton] December 5, 2007 ---- "Boynton genealogy in Reminiscences of a Nonagenarian" --- There is a narative of the Boynton genealogy starting on page 321 of Reminiscenses of a Nonagenarian by Sarah (Smith) Emery. Google digitized the book from the Harvard University collection on Aug 31, 2006. The following link will take you to the online copy:
It begins with, "The Boynton family date from the invasion of Ireland by the Norsemen, in the seventh century. A chieftain of the race obtained a victory on the river Boyne, and from that historic stream took the name of Boynton. The comencement of the family pedigree in England is as follows:" It ends with a copy of the Boynton crest - only the goat has been replaced by a lion. Enjoy, Ken Allen --- kallen (at) akaka.com

- [Boynton] January 17, 2008 ---- "Boynton family" --- Have been reviewing some of the inquiries and responses in the guest book, and thought I would give a general reply. I am descended from William-Elizabeth; Joshua-Hannah; William-Joanna; John-Anna Smith; David-Anna Batchelder; Mark W.-Desire; Nathaniel B.; Joseph W.; Nathaniel B.
David and Anna, and his brother William and wife Mary (Molly) Huckins migrated from East Kingston, NH to Canterbury, NH to Meredith/New Hampton, NH. David and William owned adjoining properties, David's 1st lot was 117 Ac. David and Anna had 9 children, one of whom was William D (1780), who marries Nancy Davis; one of their children Samuel (1806), married 1st Nancy Sawyer, who died during the childbirth of their 5th child, 1840. William later marrried Evelina Anville Spaulding Dunn (widow) and they had at least 3 children, including Andrew Jackson, Augusta and Evelina. William and Nancy (and several infant children) are buried in the Boynton Cemetary, on the properties originally owned by David and William. No site for Evelina.
Also, there is some information that Anna Batchelder may have been married previous to her marriage to David, as there is a deed from James Foss, relinquishing all interest in the estate "of my beloved mother Anna Boynton". However, can find nothing more about James Foss.
There is a considerable amount of information about David's descendents, some of whom migrated to ME, VT and Canada.

- [Boynton] February 10, 2008 ---- "earmarks explained - 12 years later!" --- Hello Doug,
I stumbled across your following response to entry 17. TE 96-10-06 in your
first guest book:
... we find in Branford CT town records under the date of Oct 16 1710 that
one 'Jon. Boyington [sic] entered his ear marks with a crosse on the right
ear and a half penny on the fore side of the same," ... I have no idea what
to make of the description of the mark that John made, I assume that the
"ear" and "crosse" must be terms used in describing the shape of the mark
that was created as a signature.
It happens that I have recently been researching earmarks for unrelated
reasons. Given that earmarks originally were marks on the ears of domestic
animals for the purpose of identifying them to their owners, fences being a
sometime thing in the 16th century, it is likely that Jonathan was
registering his "ear mark" in the Branford town records as public notice of
his mark. At that time, the practice was likely more a matter of wanting
one's animals returned home as soon as possible than it might have been a
matter of protecting the mark from use by others. as it would likely be
today, especially in the area of trademark protection, copyright, et al.
With 12 intervening years, you may have come across this information and
suggestion many times, but I felt called to share the tidbit I had just

my Boynton side.
My Grandfather & Great Grandfather were only children & they died fairly young,
so I have almost no dates or names.
My Great Grandfather is George Arthur Boynton DOB- 18 Jan 1890, Deerfield, MA.
His father is Charles L. Boynton. Here is where I am stuck with no further
Some Census records for George are conflicting listing his father as born in
Mass on one & New York on another. I believe he died in Mass, probaly in
Deerfield or Springfield.
Charles was married to Sarah Nicholson in 1888 in Greenfield, MA.
If you can help that would be great.
Anne-Marie --- email@example.com
Anne-Marie - The only "Charles L. Boynton" listed in my 1896 Boynton book (page 83) was born March 30, 1860 to a Major Nathan Smith Boynton (who was born June 23, 1837). There is a half page of text and a photograph devoted to Major Boynton, however, since he was born in Michigan and lived in Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois, I suspect that he is not the father of your Charles L. Boynton. If anyone else has information relating to Anne-Marie's relative, I'll be happy to post it. - Doug

I have reason to believe that the real name of one of its authors, who wrote novels under the pseudonym 'Mullin Garr," was named in
reality William David Boynton. I wonder if you could confirm that he was a member of your family, and if so whether he would

Patrick - I see that your German Olympia Press web page (http://sonic.net/~patk/German_Olympia.html) lists 13 translations of books by Garr, Mullin [William David Boynton] published between 1970 and 1972. The Library of Congress lists two in English from 1969 and 1970 with no mention of an alternative name; Amazon lists several without mention of a pseudonym. My family reference book was published in 1896 so it does not cover the contemporary Boynton family members (and William David Boynton is not an immediate relative).

At some point during their marriage they lived in Michigan along the coast of Lake Michigan and also in Rockford, IL. I don't know when, but he left after my mother and uncle were born after March of 1973 and we never heard of him again until my mother was notified of his death in Nebraska in June 2002. I do know that there are/were some sisters and other family members of his living in Indiana and possibly still in Michigan prior to 2000. I was wondering if you might have some information regarding this person or family members. I am at a loss for where to search as all I have is a wedding date and the month and year of his death.
Sarah Bolen --- sebolen (at) yahoo.com
I've posted your request at the web site. I regret that I don't have any source of information myself. My Boynton family history was published in 1896 and therefore requires that there be names dating back to 1890 or earlier.

I'm afraid that I don't yet have any information. My Boynton family history was published in 1896 does not mention any Kennison.

My Moor family came from the Thorpe Hall, Rudston, York area.

Do you have any information on these Boyntons? I live in Iowa, United States. Thanks, Tracy Moore-Murray --- punkslm (at) globalccs.net
I don't find any references to Mary Moor (or Moore or Moors).
I did, however, find a remarkable human interest story regarding "Moore" on page 26 of the Boynton family history book of 1896.
Jonathan Boynton married Mary Moore, widow of John Moore, Dec. 13, 1781; "When they entered the Revolution army, Moore was Drum Major and Boynton was Fife Major. Moore told Boynton if he died, he (Boynton) must come home and marry his widow. Moore did die and Boynton came home and married the widow." and when their son related this to John Farnham Boynton (co-author of family history), many years later, he added "that is how the Moore came into my name".
Best regards - Doug
July 21, 2008:
Thanks for your recent reply regarding the Moore name. Our Moore's did not come over from England until after 1809. I know that there are so many Moor/Moore folks out there. Over in England there was a plethera of Moor/Moore folks. I would think that somehow they had to be related, but defininately can't say. I have been stumped by the fact that we cannot get back any further than 1720. So whatever happened there as a fire or something, the records are lost. Or at least many of my family cannot penetrate that date. But this I do know, we do have Boynton folk in our family that married into the Moore line. I wished that there was a way we could connect our lines somehow. But maybe that is not possible. I wanted to especially thank you for looking into the question. I really appreciate it!!! If you ever find anything, please let me know. Thanks again!!!! Tracy Moore-Murray

According to my mother, Harold was given up by his father, Leonard, after
his mother, Helen Weller, passed away in 1902, to an old maid with the last
name of McIntyre. She raised my grandfather, but never did adopt him. However,
he did take her last name of McIntyre, and used it until the day he died.
Recently a distant cousin of mine sent a notebook, to my mother, with lots
of Boyington family history in it. Now I have gotten addicted, and want to
find out as much as I can about my family.
Do you have any pictures or information that you would share? I sure would
Thank you so very much,
Dolores (Dee) Sanders --- Deebillsan (at) aol.com
Dee - These searches are fun (and sometimes frustrating as well). I'm afraid that I don't yet have any information. My Boynton family history published in 1896 does not mention either of these Boyington ancestors (it only lists a total of 27). I also skimmed Roy E. Byington's 1996 (yes 100 years later) "Byington, Boynton, Baker Genealogy with the descendants of Cyrus Irving Byington of Norwalk, Connecticut 1865-1953" without any luck. That book does do a nice job of describing the origins of the Boynton family and the name change to Byington but I didn't notice any Boyington references (although it does not have an index).

Boynton. He was born in Vermont in 1812. He married Permelia Buss, b.1809
also of Vt. Census records indicate that Zerah's parents were both from MA.
Zerah and Permelia moved to Ontario Canada. There they had a child, William,
b 1833. They moved to Michigan some years later and had several more
children. Zerah died in Jackson County Michigan.
Do you have any information that can help me find Zerah' parents?
Cynthia Prestidge --- cprestidge (at) satx.rr.com
Yes, my 1896 Boynton family book (page 232) lists Zerah Boynton (the 10th of 11 children) who married Permelia Buss of Middlebury, Vermont. [interestingly, he was left out of the index so I found the listing from her name] The book lists his birth date as Aug. 29, 1811 and his death date as May 5, 1881 at Grass Lake, Michigan where he had lived since 1834. If I read it correctly, the book says that their son Wallace J. Boynton was born March 10, 1835, son B. F. (?), daughter Permelia was born in 1840, son Daniel was born in 1842, and (daughter?) Arethusa was born in 1845. Wallace married Jeannette Stevenson and their children were Lizzie, Ray, and Emma. [the layout of this entry is a little cryptic).
Zerah's father was David Boynton (page 231), born 1742 and supposed to be the son of a John Boynton (there is no more information going backwards); David was in the French War and the Revolution and drew a pension in his last year of life. He lived in Wendall, Hampshire Country, Massachusetts and then moved in 1822 to Hague, Warren County, New York. Regards - Doug
July 23, 2008:
Thank you for the great information about the my Boynton relative.
I want to add the names of Zerah' siblings and hopefully the mother's name.
Could you direct me to a source of this information. I've looked on your
website for the page numbers indicated in your email but am unable to locate
them. Are they in a specific volume?
One of the children born to Zerah was my gr.gr. Grandfather William Boynton
who was born in Ontario Canada. He married a woman named Melissa. Would you
happen to have any information/ideas about William.
Again thank you for sending the information about Zerah. It's been a great

- [Boynton] July 16, 2008 ---- "Willard Van Orman Quine and Boynton" --- Dear Douglas
Like many, I have found your website both very enjoyable and informative. You may well know that the name 'Boynton' is pretty unusual in the UK, even more than in the US I think. Now in my fifties, I don't think I have ever met a Boynton outside my own extended family.
I come originally from the Isle of Wight, where there are quite a few Boyntons, though many have moved away to seek educational and employment opportunities on the 'mainland'. I am now based in Buckinghamshire, not far from London. I do not know much about the genealogy of my own family, although I believe its base on the Isle of Wight goes back most of the twentieth century. I'd certainly be fascinated to know whether you are aware of any connections between the Isle of Wight Boyntons and those in the US.
Coincidentally, I was a student at Harvard Law School in the mid '70s. I also had philosophical interests and I cross-registered for a course (Philosophy of Language taught by Linda Foy) in the Department of Philosophy. Your father would have been there at that time. However, it was only much more recently that I discovered that the Quines and Boyntons were connected - I think when I read some of the obituaries relating to your father and which of course mentioned your mother. If I had known about that at the time I hope I would have had the courage to introduce myself to your father on the strength of my 'family connection.'
I look forward to exploring your website in more detail.
Yours, Philip Boynton
Thanks for the note. Although I grew up in Boston, in the early 1970's I was a student at Princeton (undergraduate) and then Cornell (graduate school). The Boynton name is rare here in absolute terms but there are thousands of descendants of the two brothers who came here in 1638. I'm amazed to find that 95% of the people who can name an ancestor from the 1800's (when my reference book was published) prove to be distant cousins.

- [Boynton] July 16, 2008 ---- "Joseph Boynton" --- Hi , Looking for the family tree of Joseph Boynton who was born in New York in 1812/1813. Appears on the 1880 US Census living in Harborcreek Erie County PA. Thank You. Rick Hostetter --- painfantry (at) comcast.net
Do you by chance have any other names (wife, son)? Joseph is an extremely common name and many of the entries do not list years.
Regards - Doug
Thanks for getting back to me. Information: 1850 census Pomfret, Chautauqua, New York, Joseph 38, born in New York...Wife Polly 37, born in NY, Frederick 16, born in New York, Joseph 14, born in New York, Philander 10, born in New York, Albert 8, born in New York, Lucy A 3, born in New York.
1870 Census Harborcreek, Erie, Pennsylvania,, Joseph 58, Mary 57, Lucy A 23, Edwin 19. Everyone was born in New York.
I believe Frederick form above eventually lived in PA and Philander was in PA for awhile but died in Florida in 1918.
My theory is that Joseph may come from the Jonah family that migrated in Albany New York from Vermont.
Thanks for your help,
Thanks for the additional information. Unfortunately, I struck out. While Philander is a rare name, there are two entries (pages 226 for Philander Boynton and page 248 for Philander Prescott Boynton in my old Boynton book) but none of the siblings names match. If you do find additional information, please send it along. Meanwhile, I'm updating the web listing in case someone else can find the answer.

I ran across the name of Casmir W Boynton who is connected with Boynton Beach in New Jersey btw. late 1800's and early 1900's It is in the city of Sewaren, NJ. Would any one have the ancestor of this person.
Does anyone have any information on a Casmir (sp) W. Boynton who was in Seawaren N.J. in the late 1800's. He owed a Clay and Fire Brick company and also a lumber company. This Boynton family also had a beach resort named for them in Seawaren N.J. called The Boynton Beach Resort. There appears to be no connection to the Florida Boynton Beach family. Dennis and Tina --- email: bumpyandbumpa (at) comcast.net
My 1896 Boynton book lists a Cassimer William Boynton (page 179) of Sewaren, NJ and says that he is a manufacturer of drain pipe, tile, hollow brick and fireproofing. He is the son of Nathaniel Boynton born May 14, 1807 (who had his name changed by an act of legislature to "Gorham Lincoln Boynton" around 1836). Nathaniel's father was also named Nathaniel Boynton; his father was Captain Joseph Boynton born Jan 17, 1755; his father was Samuel; his father was Daniel; his father was Samuel; and his father was the John Boynton who emigrated to America in 1638.

I would like to share this with you. I have been researching the Boynton family for many years and was fascinated to read the information on your site. I have a copy of the manuscript transcribed by Carolyn H. Boynton that had been loaned to her by a Mrs. Stevens, sister of Edmund Boynton.
Thank you for your website. It's interesting to know that there are so many people unknown to one another who actually have ancestors in common.
- My maternal greatgrandmother was Betsy Boynton. She was born in York, Maine on Aug. 13, 1814, the last of 8 children. Betsy Boynton married James Reed Spear in June, 1841 and had four children and she died in 1886.
- Her parents were Oliver Boynton and Lucretia Hodgden.

The book was purchased in Maine, but the name seems to be of the same time period as a Richard Boynton who was associated with the Sons of Liberty in Boston. Any info that you have would be helpful. I have included a photo of his signature in the book.

That was a long time ago. And I am not sure I have all the links. It is easy to list people's names, but sometimes there are gaps that are too long....... Grandma did a lot researching, but....
And this is not my major interest, but I was reading a book on early church history today and was appalled at the treatment two Quaker women Mary Fisher and Ann Austin were given.

- [Boynton] Feb. 6, 2009 --- "Moor family and Boynton family in Yorkshire and later arrivals in the United States" ---
Hello Mr. Quine,
I have contacted you before. Now after studying much more on my Moor family, your Boynton family name I understand more deeply. I understand that the two brothers that came to America in the 1600's. But how many more Boyntons stayed in Yorkshire? I had asked a year or two ago if you recoginized the name of John Boynton that married Mary Moor 13 Sept 1828. She was the daughter of Thomas and Mary Moor. She was born 01 Feb 1793 at Killham, York, England. For John we have the birth date of 1790. Both died in Vernon, North Moreland, Pennsylvania. John in 1863 and Mary in 1869.
Our John Boynton's father was also John Boynton. My Moor family were farm laborers in and around Thorpe Hall till they came over to Pennsylvania.
The union of John and Mary Boynton brought Frank and Alice Boynton, both born in England. Date for Frank I do not have but Alice is 1817.
This is all the information that we have on this couple.
Also, we have an Alice Boynton born 11 Nov 1817 England and was married to William Moor who was born 25 Feb 1811 at Speeton, York, England. William died at Vernon, Wyoming Co. Pennsylvania in 1872. Alice Boynton, Moor died the same place in 1896. They had 6 children, two with the middle name of Boynton.
In looking at your family tree on the Boynton side, there is much work to be done continuing with the Boynton line. Full time job!!!!!
If you can find these folks, let me know. Being in the same area and then marrying assures me that there is a connection somewhere. Do you know anything about Thorpe Hall at Rudston, England??? History in about 1800 or so??? I can be more specific if when you e-mail me back. Thanks for your help. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again, Tracy Moore- Murray
Tracy, Yes, many Boynton family members did stay in Yorkshire and indeed there remains a family presence there today. My 350 page reference book just talks about the family in America from 1638 to 1896 - since then the family has grown to unmeasured dimensions around the world. Unfortunately, my day job calls so someone else will need to document the entire family. I'm sorry that I can't help more with the other questions. Perhaps another reader can.. Regards - Doug
- [Boynton] March 9, 2009 --- "Rowley and Boynton Family" ---
Hi, my name is Thomas Rowley. During her lifetime my grandmother Verna Erikson traced our family genealogy.
The farthest back she went was the Boynton family, who were the first of my ancestors in the new world.
She found out John Boynton was born in Knapton, Wintringham in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England in 1614. According to her, John and his brother WIlliam settled in Rowley, Mass. in 1638. John Boynton married Ellen Pell of Boston and had 7 children with her. Joseph, John, Caleb, Mercy, Hannah, Sarah and Samuel.
According to a website I found John Boynton changed his name to Byington shortly after arriving in America. When he was granted a tract of land by the king his name was misspelled. He decided it was easier to go with that rather than write back to England and deal with a paper chase for the next several years.
She also found our earliest known ancestor with the Boynton surname was Bartholomew de Boyton who "siezed of the manor of Boynton in 1067".
I can send you everything she researched if you want to see more. On a personal note, I consider Boynton, England my ancestral home and I hope to visit someday. I realize there has been many generations over the last 370 years but I'm just happy to know where I came from.
Thomas Rowley, Dallas, Texas -- email: tom (at) buymeataco.com
Thomas - Thanks for your note. As you probably appreciate, your family was very important in the settlement of the Boynton family in America as Rev. Rowley was the minister to the congregation and the town which was named after him! At the home page of this web site (www.quine.org/boynton.html) you can see the Boynton family traced all the way back to Bartholomew de Boynton. I'm interested to hear the story of the Byington name change. I'd always understood it was due to the illiteracy / poor penmanship of our ancestors (not the king's fault). That is a nice story. I have the 1896 Boynton family history book which mentions many of the items that you referenced. Do you know whether your grandmother found the information there or whether there is another source as well? Best regards - Doug
(July 7, 2009) Hello Douglas, My grandmother did her most of her research in the 80's and early 90's, she passed away in 1995. It was old-fashion pavement pounding; visiting cemeteries, searching church and government records and checking shipping manifests. In her research she did name some sources, mostly cemeteries and public records. She was also very active in the Daughters of the American Revolution and used some of their resources.
I'm not too sure of the circumstances surrounding the name change other than someone misspelled it, I don't know who was at fault. There isn't much about our family in England, the story picks up in America circa 1683.
One interesting note: one of the Boynton ancestors, Mary Barnes was put to death for witchcraft during the Salem trials. Other than that there are some wild stories from the American Revolution and the Civil War.
Again, I hope to visit Boynton/Bridlington someday soon to have an authentic British Ale.
I'll check out the webpage and get back to you on anything of interest I find.

They lived around the coast of Maine in the Pemaquid, Pemaquid Beach, New Harbor area. They lived in Bowdoinham, Maine at their passing. All I can remember about the Boynton family is my mother telling me that the family had a castle called Castle Boyntoin and the Name Von Boyton. My Mothers Name was Natalie Mildred Fossett Estabrook. I believe if I remember correctly my grandmother had a brother named Robert Boynton. Thank you Linda Keenan -- email: Lekmwj08 (at) aol.com
Linda - My Boynton family history book ends in 1896 so I'd need names from before that to be able to link the family history. Certainly the "Boynton Castle" is well documented in family lore and a photograph is opposite page xii in the old family history book. I'm not aware of a Von Boynton linkage but the early Norman family history does include Bartholomew de Boynton (Lord of the Boynton manor in 1067). I've captured some of the early family history on the main Boynton family web page: www.quine.org/boynton.html Regards - Doug.

Dear Mr. Quine:
My Grandfather was Willard Henry Boynton, born in Nevada, Iowa on November 11, 1892. He was one of 11 children, the others were all female. He had two daughters, Alice Elizabeth and Ida Belle. I am the son of Alice, my name is Willard Hopkins. My grandfather showed me (back in the 1970's) a family genealogy that stretched back to 1638 in Rowley, Mass. Unfortunately, that family tree has been lost. I remember that either his father or grandfather (or both) were named Henry Boynton. Do you or anyone else have any information about the Boynton family in Nevada, Iowa. Thank you. Will Hopkins -- email: whopkins (at) questaec.com
My Boynton reference book does not have any geographical index. I checked all the William H. Boynton entries and did not find any Iowa connection. There are dozens of William Boynton listings without initials (and also there are index errors) so I cannot be sure whether the information is known... Does anyone else know? Regards - Doug
(June 15, 2009) Hi Doug,
Thanks for getting back to me. My Grandfather's name was Willard H. Boynton, not William, which may help narrow the field. He was also known as Bill Boynton, but that probably won't help. He was an alumni of Iowa State University, and was on their basketball team. He always talked about his Grandfather having a station on the underground railroad in Iowa before and during the Civil War.
Anyway, Thanks for your efforts. Maybe someone will see the post and reply.
My apologies, certainly Willard (my father's name) is much less common and easier to trace. My Boynton book from 1896 is very sketchy for birthdates as late as 1892. It does have several Willard Boynton entries (but the locations don't mention Iowa).
Keep me posted if you get any further insights.
Best regards - Doug
- Page 36, is a Willard H. Boynton (8th generation in America, born 1854) - who was my grandfather's uncle! married Annie Rollins of Groveland (Groveland, MA where my grandfather also grew up)
