A Descendant of
Lawrence and Cassandra
ORIN EDWARD SOUTHWICK
Privately Printed at the Moorsfield Prefs
Champlain, N. Y., October 22, 1932.
From South Coast Saunterings in England.
THERE was printed in the county of Hampshire a curious "Annual Repository," two volumes of which I have been enabled, through the kindness of a friend, to examine. These are records of the agricultural, social and religious condition of the various parishes in the county and many entertaining accounts of their antiquities. Of the latter, I was struck with the form of a conveyance by Henry I. (A.D. 1133) of land to Southwick Priory: "I will and firmly decree that the said canons, their officers and servants, shall have and hold all their possessions free and unmolested from shires and hundreds and all manner of suits, pleas and complaints and payments for murders and larcenies, from homsuchen and forest law, from scutage and hidage, gelds, denegelds and homgelds, assorts, assizes, dodande, saides, rummages, avepenny and hundred-penny, miskinnings and blodewyte." — M. D. CONWAY, Harper's Monthly, Vol. 39, page 344.
1. LAWRENCE SOUTHWICK. There
is a tradition in the Southwick family that Lawrence
came from Lancashire, England, to America in 1627, and
returned to England and brought his wife Cassandra and
son John and daughter Mary to Massachusetts in 1630, on
the May Flower in
company with Wm. Bradford and others, and settled at
Salem, Mass. We do not find any mention of his name in
the public records of Salem until 1639, when he and his
family were admitted as members in the First Church of
Salem, and two acres of land was given him by the town
of Salem to carry on the business of manufacturing glass
and earthen ware. There is a tradition that he was one
of the first to manufacture glass in America. This two
acres of land was called glass-house field, as there
were two others engaged in the same business, and the
land is so designated today on the records and maps of
said property, although the manufacture has long ceased
to be carried on there. Said land is a valley running
easterly from Aborn Street, and is on the south side of
what is called Gallows Hill, where several persons were
hung during the Salem Witchcraft delusion, a very dark
page in the history of sectarian bigotry in
Lawrence and wife Cassandra and son Josiah and daughter Mary were fined, whipt, imprisoned and finally banished for being Quakers, and their son Daniel and daughter Provided were sentenced by the General Court to be sold into slavery. (An attempt was made to carry this barbarous order into execution, but no shipmaster was found willing to convey them to the West Indies.) Lawrence and wife Cassandra went to Shelter Island, Long Island Sound, being banished under pain of death in 1659, and died there in the Spring of 1660 from privation and exposure; his wife died three days after him. [The following quotation is from one of Whittier's poems, which was inspired by this incident:
"So from his lost home to the darkening main Bodeful of storm, good Macy held his way, And when the green shore blended with the gray, His poor wife moaned, 'Let us turn back again.' 'Nay woman, weak of faith, kneel down' said he, 'And say thy prayers; the Lord Himself will steer, And led by Him nor man nor devils I fear.'"
"So the gray Southwicks from a rainy sea Saw, far and faint the loom of land and gave With feeble voices thanks for friendly ground Whereon to rest their weary feet, and found A peaceful deathbed and a quiet grave Where ocean walled, and wiser than his age, The Lord of Shelter scorned the bigot's rage."]1
1 The History of Shelter Island, p. 26.
Their son Josiah went to Rhode Island and established a home for himself and family. He came back to Salem in 1660 to look after his parents' property and found the property in very poor condition, and was whipped for returning to Massachusetts. It seems incredible that any followers of Christ could have so belied their professions, but it was an illustration of the saying of Robert Pollock, in regard to the hypocrite,
"Who stole the livery of the Court of Heaven To serve the Devil in."

The Sylvester Monument on Shelter Island
On the Horsford estate, near the head of Gardiner's Creek, on the edge of a beautiful grove of forest trees, can be seen a monument that has been erected to the memory of Nathaniel Sylvester. On the marble slab, besides the Coat of Arms, appears the following fine tribute to Mr. Sylvester:

has done much to beautify a short section of the English
River, where its waters fall over a series of ledges to
another level some thirty feet below, and then flow on
through a narrow picturesque chasm for a thousand feet
or more, until they enter the meadow land at the
Canadian Border and linger on their way to the St.
Lawrence. It was here that Orin Southwick took his young
wife Hannah to live shortly after their marriage in
1829. A large granite boulder some forty-five feet
circumference and the old stone abutment of the sawmill
which he built are there to mark the place. The boulders
can be plainly seen from a point in the highway about
half a mile north from Blackman's Corners in the Town of
Mooers, Clinton County, New York. Two sons, Edward A.
and Orin Frederick, were born here; the remainder of the
family were born at the Orin Southwick Homestead, about
one mile east from Blackman's Corners, in the Town of
Mooers, at present owned by George Laventure, to which
Orin and Hannah Southwick removed in the early
Southwick and wife Hannah (Stone) celebrated their
golden wedding, May 10, 1879, at Mooers, N. Y. Their
children, grandchildren and other relatives numbered
about 79. They came from east, west and south; two sons
from Minnesota, two sons from Massachusetts, with their
families, and two sons who reside in Mooers, and one
daughter, Mrs. R. Erwin.
Mr. Orin Southwick, although somewhat feeble and lame, retained his mental faculties as clear as ever, and his sound business qualities were esteemed by all who knew him. He was a man of temporate habits, and good morals. He, with his wife, resided with their son Horatio, who rendered to them all in his power for their comfort. They received from their children and others, many beautiful and valuable presents, and speeches were made giving thanks for the many happy years their parents had lived. After the speeches a bountiful table was ready for the guests, after which music was enjoyed, by the Mooers Cornet Band, and to wind up to part, all sang the Sweet Bye and Bye.
Hannah Stone's mother was the great granddaughter of Gen. Whitemore, who with his family (except Mary, whom he left behind), undertook a voyage to England, and were all lost at sea. He had previously secured a grant for the whole of the land on which now stands the city of Halifax, Novia Scotia, but he had the deeds of conveyance with him. Means were never taken by Mary or her descendants to secure their rights.

It was here that all of the children of Edward A. and Achsah were born. During his early life he was engaged in lumbering and operated mills on Gray Brook and the English River in the Town of Mooers, near Blackman's Corners, after which he acquired farm lands in the Town of Champlain to which he moved in December, 1888, operating same until within four years of his death.

"The Standard", Wells, Minn.
David Southwick died at Wells, Minn., Thursday, Sept. 8,
1870, at one A. M., of bilious fever, aged thirty-three
years. He was one of our oldest and best citizens.
Coming to this section of the State at twenty years of
age, thirteen years ago, he settled at Freeborn, in
Freeborn County, where he engaged in trade. Two years
later, his brother, Frederick, came west and connected
himself with him. They remained at Freeborn, building up
a handsome village as well as an extensive business
until this spring, when David connected with him two
young men from the East, Messrs. Huntly and Terhune, and
put in a large retail establishment at Wells.
Two weeks ago Mr. Southwick was in the best of health and exuberant spirits. To-day he is lifeless, his wife mourns the loss of a husband, his child a father, and the community in which he lived, one of its best citizens. The bereaved family have the heartfelt spmpathy of the entire community. About two years since, we announced his marriage in The Standard, and his union, we believe, proved a very happy one. It seems, therefore, a hard decree of fate that his young wife and child should be called, thus early, to mourn his loss.
