The Prescotts are on my mother’s side of the family. Her grandmother was Julia Prescott Skillman. Much of the earlier material below was taken from the Prescott Memorial by William Prescott. My family is covered in Part I of the book. (Additional data will be added later as time allows.)

1. James Prescott of Standish, Lancashire, England, “one of the gentlemen of Lancashire who were required by an order of Queen Elizabeth I, dated August, 1564, to keep in readiness horsemen and armor. He married a daughter of Rober Standish, Esq., of Standish, and sister to Ralph Standish, by whom he had the following issue.”
a. James, “married Alice Molineaux. For his bravery and military prowess and achievements he was created lord of the manor of Dryby in Lincolnshire, and had new arms granted to him and was afterward known as Sir James Prescott. He dies March 1, 1583, leaving a son John and a daughter Anne.”

4. John, “baptized at Standish, 1604-05. He is named in his father’s will. He married January 21, 1629, Mary Platts, at Wygan in Lancashire. Her family appears to have been subsequently of the parish of Halifax in Yorkshire, some of whom are mentioned in the will of George Fairbanks of Sowerby, dated in 1605. John Prescott sold his lands in Shevington, parish of Standish, in Lancashire, to Richard Prescott of Wigan, and removed into Yorkshire, residing for some time in Sowerby, in the parish of Halifax, where several of his children were born. From conscientious motives, and to avoid persecution, he left his native land, his cherished home in Yorkshire, to seek an asylum in the wilderness of America. He first landed in Barbados in 1638, where he became an owner of lands. In 1640, he came to New England, landed at Boston, and immediately settled in Watertown, where he had large grants of lands allotted him. But in 1643, he associated himself with Thomas King and other, for the purpose of purchasing of Sholan, the Indian Sachem of the Nashaway tribe of Indians, a tract of land for a township, which tract was to be ten miles in length and eight in breadth.”
a. Mary, “baptized at Sowerby in the parish of Halifax in Yorkshire, England, February 24, 1630; married Thomas Sawyer of Lancaster, Mass, 1648; lived at Lancaster.
b. Martha, “baptized at Sowerby, March 11, 1632; married John Rugg, 1655; resided in Lancaster. She died January 24, 1656, and he married for a second wife, Hannah Prescott,” Martha’s sister.

d. Sarah, “baptized at Sowerby, 1637; married Richard Wheeler of Lancaster, August 2, 1658. He and Jonas Fairbanks and his son Joshua were killed by the Indians at Wheeler’s garrison in February, 1676. She afterwards married a Mr. Rice.”
e. Hannah, “baptized 1639. It is not positively known whether this daughter was born in Halifax, England, or at Barbados, West Indies, probably the latter place. She married John Rugg, May 4, 1660, as his second wife, who had for his first wife, married her sister Martha.”
f. Lydia, “baptized at Watertown, Mass., August 15, 1641; married Jonas Fairbanks of Lancaster, May 28, 1658. His father was of Sowerby in Halifax, Yorkshire, England. He and his son Joshua were killed by the Indians when Lancaster (Mass.) was destroyed in February, 1676. She married 2nd Elias Barron.”
g. Jonathan (see below)
h. Joseph, “(?) born about 1645 or ‘6 (?).”

5. Jonathan, “It is not know when or where this son was born, as there is no record, that we can learn, either at Halifax, Watertown, Mass., or Lancaster; from the dates of the births of the other children, it is highly probable that he was born at Watertown, and about 1643. He settled in Lancaster, where he married 1st, Dorothy ____, August 3, 1670; she died and he removed to Concord in 1675, where he married for a second wife, Elizabeth, daughter of John Hoar, Esq., a lawyer of Concord, Mass., December 23, 1675. She died September 25, 1687, and for a third wife he married December 18, 1689, Rebecca, the widow of Hon. Peter Bulkley, Jr., and daughter of Lt. Joseph Wheeler. After her death, he married for a fourth wife, August 18, 1718, Ruth Brown, who died February 9, 1740. He was a farmer and was the ancestor of a numerous progeny, many of whom have been distinguished for talents, piety and usefulness. His house was fortified as a garrison house in 1676. He was a man of energy and influence, and highly respected, being much employed in public business. He represented the town of Concord in the General Assembly for nine years (to wit) 1692, ‘3, ‘4, ‘5, ‘7, ‘8, ‘9, and in 1712 and ‘13. He was captain in the militia and always designated as “Captain Prescott.” He died December 1721.”

He settled in Concord, Mass., as a physician, where he pursued his professional duties with success. We transcribe the following extract from an inscription on his monument at Concord: ‘He was a gentleman of virtue and merit; an accomplished and successful physician; excelling in surgery; possessing much sagacity and penetration of mind.

Upon its failure, in 1743 he returned to this country and soon afterward was sent by the government to England. He was seized with the smallpox and died of that disease in London, December 30, 1743.”
d. Peter, “born April 17, 1709; graduated from Harvard College, 1730; studied law and resided at Concord and Boston. He dealt extensively in wild lands, and Peterborough, NH, derived its name from him. He served in the French war and commanded a company at Crown Point in 1758. He removed to Annapolis, Nova Scotia, previous to the Revolution where he died in 1784.”
e. (Col.)Charles, “born August 15 1711; married about 1736, Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph and Rebecca (Minot) Barrett, born January 9, 1717. Resided in Concord where he was a selectman and a representative to the General Court. He was also colonel of militia. He served three years in the war of the Revolution.

i. Mary, “born July 3, 1720.”

k. Benjamin, “born about 1724-5, killed by French and Indians in May, 1745, in the expedition that captured Louisburg under Sir. William Pepperdell. He had previously entered college but left to enter the army.”

7. Dr Abel Prescott, “born April 7, 1718; married first Abigail Brigham; she died and he married second, June 12, 1775, Mrs. Mary, widow of John Beaton. He enjoyed a very extensive professional patronage in Concord and lived in the house more recently owned by Captain Moore, a little below the village. He died from mortification of the foot, October 26, 1805. Issue of Dr. Abel Prescott and Abigail Brigham:
a. John, “born April 23, 1743; married January 22, 1765, Grace Potter, born 1747. He was a farmer in Concord where he died from paralysis, March 12, 1821. She died March 10, 1827.

c. Abigail, “born April 12, 1747; married September 1764, Ephraim Minor; three children. She died from lung fever, February 27, 1825.”
d. Abel, “born April 12, 1749. On the 19th of April, 1775, he was fired on by British soldiers as he was returning from the neighboring town, whither he had been to apprise the people of the approach of the “regulars” (so called) and slightly wounded in the side, but succeeded in making his escape by secreting himself in the house of a Mrs. Heywood. He died of dysentery on the third of the following September, 1775.”
e. (Dr.) Samuel, “born August 19, 1751. On his return from Lexington, in the night previous to the 19th of April, 1775, where he spent the evening in paying his addresses to the daughter of Mr. Mulliken, he soon overtook Paul Revere and William Dawes on their way to Concord to alarm the people and apprise them of the intended expedition of the British soldiers upon Concord. When the three had arrived near Hartwell’s Tavern in the lower bounds of Lincoln, they were attacked by four British officers of a scouting party sent out the preceding evening. Revere and Dawes were taken prisoners, Prescott was also attached and had the reins of his horse’s bridle cut, but he succeeded in making his escape by jumping his horse over the wall; and, taking a circuitous route through Lincoln, he pushed on with the utmost speed to Concord and gave the alarm of the approach of the British. He was subsequently taken prisoner on board of a privateer, and carried into Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he died in prison.” (So, the famous poem by Longfellow is wrong; Paul Revere did not complete his ride to warn “the British are coming.” Samuel Prescott was the one who actually completed the ride and warned the town.)

g. Jonathan, “born June 11, 1755; died unmarried, August 22, 1810.

Jonathan Fay of Westbrook Mass., and born January 21, 1752; practiced law in Concord.” (The Presidents Bushes are descended from Lucy Prescott and Jonathan Fay.)

In June, 1778, he was surgeon to a squadron of men sent to reinforce General Sullivan in R.I.; twenty-six of the men were from Concord. He settled in Concord as a physician.

Prescott
Issue of wife #1:
a. Mary, born 1846
b. Silas W., born 1849
c. Elias N., born 1850 in NY
(Because I do not have a date for Juliette’s death, there is one other child that could possibly be hers of Lucina Jane’s: d. William (Frank), born 1856 in NY; the 1850 census lists Juliette as W.C.’s wife and the 1860 census lists Lucina Jane as his wife.)

  1. Ashley Blackwell says:

    Hi! I want to thank you for compiling this list of the Prescott family tree. I traced my ancestry back a while ago – My father’s side of the family was in the Prescott name from 1230-1830. Your account here begins with James Prescott of Standish, Lancashire, England. My family tree includes him, then Roger Prescott, then Ralph Prescott, then John Prescott, then Captain Jonathan, then Hon. Benjamin Prescott, then Dr. Benjamin James Prescott, then Benjamin Prescott, then the Prescott name ends as the last Benjamin Prescott in my line had a daughter, Nancy “Penelope” Pierce, in 1785. My Prescott lineage also dates back before James Prescott of Standish, Lancashire, England, – back to his 8th great grandfather, so if you would like any of those names, feel free to email me.

    • Steve Entwisle says:

      Hi Ashley,
      It would be great if you could provide the names of James’ ancestors back to his 8th GGrandfather. I have recently discovered, through Y-DNA, that I am also descended from James.
      Thank you

    Hello!! Both to the OP and Ashley Blackwell… I was googling my earliest great grandfather (Sir James Prescott) and came upon “Our Hall Tree” and your comment Ashley! I just have to say that I am very intrigued by what either of you may have preceeding Sir James Prescott’s birth. I see now that the comment was made nearly two years ago but I am hoping you may still see this and be willing to share the information. This line is on my paternal grandmother’s side of the family and had no idea they had originated in England; my husband is in the military and we were stationed in England for 3.5 years and I am so very sad that I didn’t have the knowledge of my family’s history when we were still there. One day I will get back to England and tour through anything I can in the family history!
