Although many "genealogies" attribute Deacon John Blanchard's parentage to be Thomas & Elizabeth Blanchard, I agree with those to believe that he was instead the son of Joseph & Ann Blanchard. Notably, there is no mention of a son, John, in the will of Thomas Blanchard. An article in the NEGHS also makes the same statement that Joseph and Ann Blanchard were the parents of Deacon John Blanchard. This extensively documented article supports this. The following genealogy is NOT intended to cover all Blanchards in New England, but simply the members of the Blanchard Family who resided in "Old Dunstable" and Merrimack, New Hampshire, and whose families remained in the area. [I am not a descendant].


JOSEPH-1 BLANCHARD died in the 10th month 1637 [vital records of Boston MA]. It is possible that he was the brother of Thomas Blanchard, formerly thought to be the father of Deacon John. Joseph married Ann -- who died 24 June 1662 [recorded at Chelmsford and at Woburn MA]. The widow Ann and her children soon moved to Salem MA for "At a town meeting the 26th of the 9th month 1638, it is recorded that of "severall pportions of Land Laid out at Marblehead, 6 acres of the Necke" were formally granted to "the Widow Blanchard." She was admitted to church membership at Salem, 30 July 1643, and an early court record shows that she appeared as a witness at the session held 8 May 1745 where she is referred to as "Goodie Blanchar." In later years, after her children were grown she appears to have resided in Chelmsford MA. Her estate was administered by her son, John.

Early in life Jotham moved to Portsmouth where his brother Jonathan also lived for a number of years. In 1773 he went to Peterborough NH, and about 1785 to Truro. Earlier historians interpreted this last move to his sympathy to the British cause in the Revolution, and to the fact that he was thought to have served in the Loyalist Corps in the American Revolution. However evidence suggests otherwise. In Peterborough NH he was moderator of the town meeting in 1774, 1776-1778, and 1780-81; selectman in 1777-1781; and in 1776 a member of the Committee of Safety, and in that year he signed the Association List pledging property and life in support of the Revolution. Toward the close of the wear he had been appointed on a committee with two others to decide what action should be taken against the Tories (the report recommended confiscation of their property). However, the post-war spirit of retaliation and greed displayed by the victorious colonists disillusioned him, and he would up his affairs at Peterborough and removed to Nova Scoia. On 29 Apr 1796 he obtained a grant of 23,000 acres of land in Sydney County, where he became a highly esteemed and influential citizen. Children: (first four baptized at Portsmouth, the others at Peterborough NH) John (bapt 22 Marcch 1767), Sarah (bapt 6 Nov 1768), Elizabeth (bapt 29 July 1770), Rebecca (bap 1 March 1772), Hannah (b in 1774), Jonathan (b 21 Apr 1776), Edward S.

George Griffin was the son of Ebenezer and Betsey (Carter) Griffin, and grandson of James and Phebe (Abbot) Griffin of Wilmington, Mass.
The ancestry of Phebe Abbot may be traced to George Abbot who came from Yorkshire, England and settled in Andover, Mass in 1643.....

Ebenezer, the eldest son of James and Phebe (Abbot) Griffin, married Betsey Carter, of Leominster Mass August 11, 1792. She was the third of eighteen children born to Josiah Carter Jr., each of two wives being the mother of an equal number of offspring. The family of which Betsy Carter was a member, descended from Rev. Thomas Carter whose early home was in Hertfordshire, England. He saided for the New World in 1635, and eight years later was the pastor of a church in Woburn, Mass.

page 497
The parents of the subject of this sketch resided in Leominster for a time, but previous to the birth of George, which occurred July 28, 1811, had removed to Chelmsford, Mass. He was the tenth of a family of twelve children. A few years later circumstances favored a residence in Litchfield, and here George spent his life. His early educational advantages were such as were afforded by the district school of that time in a small country town. These limited privileges were greatly abridged for George, when twelve years of age, by a serious illness occasioned by bathing in the Merrimack when heated, which resulted in a disfigured limb. Had this physical infirmity been tenfold more afflicative, it would not have modified his determination to make his way in the world. As a means to that end, he earned money boating wood to Lowell, which was then an incipient manufacturing place, to defray the expense of a term or two at Derry and one at Bradford Academy, the latter then under the principalship of Benjamin Greenleaf. This completed his school education, terminating in his eighteenth year, and he returned to his former occupation on the Merrimack.
When funds were accumulated, Mr. Griffin engaged in the lumber business for a while, and then opened a general store in Litchfield. February 24, 1844 the store, dwelling-house and other buildings connected, of which Mr. Griffin was proprietor, were burned. Trade continued near the old stand, until buildings were erected on the former site. But mercantile life had so told upon Mr. Griffin's health that he felt compelled to relinquish trade and engage in some occupation that necessitated an out-of-door life to some extend, and he accepted the office of deputy sheriff, entering upon its duties in 1848. This work proved disappointing in its recuperative effects, and he soon resigned the office and gave his attention to the lumber business and the supervision of his farm. The characteristics of sagacity, energy, and fidelity--the foundation stones of a successful career.
Politically he affliated with the Democrats and by the suffrages of his townsmen he held the office of town clerk in 1839, selectman in 1839 and 1840 and representatives in 1848 and 1849. While in the Legislature he served on the judiciary committee. He received the appointment of justice of the peace July 7, 1849 and the same year the following served in the position of superintending school committee.
While George Griffin's generous nature gladly aided all movements that promised a public benefit, the cause of education enlisted his deepest sympathies and heartiest support. The exercise of keen powers of observation strengthened the opinion that the path to honorable success, especially to the boy or girl dependent upon the labor of hand or brain for advancement, was over the stepping-stones of knowledge, and better than all accumulation of riches for children was the discpline of good schools....
In private life Mr. Griffin was the genial, courtesou gentleman; a kind husband, indulgent father, helpful son and brother, and generous friend. Children delighted in his presence and those now in middle life who met him in childhood, recall with pleasure that "George Griffin always shook hands with them."
When twenty six years of age he married Clarissa, the eldest daughter of John and Susannah (Dickey) White of Litchfield, who inherited form her England and Scotch-Irish parentage those strong traits of character that mark the efficient, self-sacrificing woman. Eight children were the fruilt of that union--Josephine, Mary White, Susan Grace, George Byron, John White, Norris Clement, Orville Carter and Arthur George. Orville died in infancy, and John passed away at Leavenworth, Kan in 1878, aged thirty-two years.

With a large family growing up which needed his protecting arm, a devoted wife in whom he found a helpmeet, prosperous in financial matters, a popular citizen, there seemed much to make life sweet, notwithstanding physical suffering, but the all-wise Father had better things beyond, and December 13, 1853, the spirit left the feeble frame through which it had bravely met life's trials for forty-two years. The aged Christian mother survived her dear son several months, but was an invalid after his decease. His father died five years previous, at the age of seventy-eight.

The wishes of Mr. Griffin in regard to the education of his children were faithfully observed by his widow. Each child that reached the period of youth received academical advantages to a greater or less extent. Mary W. was graduated at Salem, Mass. Normal School; John W. at Dartmouth College, and was a member of the Legislature his last college year. Arthur G., who was but six weeks old when left an orphan, was educated at New London Literary Medical College, and is now port physician at Boston Harbor. The quiet, beautiful town of Litchfield is still the home of Mrs. Griffin.

Thomas Lunn (Lund)-1 was born betw 1620-1626 in England and died Abt 1676 in Boston MA; his spouse is unknown. On the roll of the company of Capt. Nathaniel Davenport, in King Philip's War, 1676, appears the name of Nicholas Lunn of Reading, and later in the same year he was a soldier stationed at Chelmsford. [One source states that from the fact that he or his legal representatives did not apply for a right in any of the Narragansett townships, it is probable that he died without issue. There is no evidence that he was related to the Dunstable family of the same name.] Thomas Lund was a trader of Boston. July 18, 1650, he applied to and secured from William Aspinwall, the Recorder of the Suffolk County Court and a Notary Public, a protest against William Greene, master of the ship Swallow, from London, for the reason that the ship did not sail on the tenth day of March, 1649, according to promise, but did sail March 29, and that said master did not take into said ship all the goods of the said Lunn. The same notary issues a certificate, dated March 18, 1650, that the ship Speedwell, of London, had delivered to Thomas Lunne, merchant of Boston, one butt, contents 1600 & quarter wht. Currans. March 16, 1672, Thomas Lunn was a witness to a deed of Samuel Bennett to Benjamin Muzzey of Rumhey Marsh, conveying land in Boston. He died before February 5, 1677, when administration on the estate of Thomas Lun, late of Boston, seaman, was granted to Benjamin Muzzey, Senior, of Rumney Marsh, in the right of Thomas the only child of said deceased.
Only one child:
1. Thomas-2 b. Sept 1660 in Dunstable MA

Thomas-2 Lund (Thomas-1 Lunn) was born Sept 1660 in Dunstable MA; He was one of the proprietors and first settlers of Dunstable (aka "Old Dunstable) which included the town of (MA): Dunstable, Tyngsborough; (NH) Hudson, Hollis, Nashua along with portions of Amherst, Milford, Merrimack, Litchfield and Londonderry and several other current towns. He is found in Dunstable as early as 1681 when he was appointed one of the town's "fence viewers." In 1682 Thomas Lund was included in a list of people who contributed funds to the "wood rate." He was also one of the town's early selectmen. During the troublous times of King William.'s War, many of the families of Dunstable removed to the older towns. In a petition to the General Court preferred by Major Thomas Henchman, commander of the garrisons in this vicinity, he says: All the inhabitants of Dunstable, excepting two families, desire to draw off, viz.: John Solendine and Thomas Lunn, whose garrisons are near to each other. For many years during seasons of alarm his house was one of the fortified garrisons of the settlement. In 1702 and 1711 his residence is considered a "garrison" against Indian attacks. He married 3 times (not sure which order 1) Eleanor --; he m2) about 1677 to Mary Muzzey; he m3) Elizabeth Bowker. He and his sons, Thomas and William, owned valuable and extensive tracts of land and the record of many deeds are at Cambridge MA and after 1741 at Concord NH. He was living in 1721, but there is no record of his death or of Eleanor, his wife.

Tyng's company, 1703-1704, and was one of the 8 men slain by the Indians near Thornton's Ferry [now Merrimack NH], September 5, 1724. Administration on the estate of "Thomas Lund, killed by the Indian enemy," was granted to his widow, Elizabeth, October 22, 1724. David Taylor of Concord, her brother, was surety on the bond. The inventory was 408 pound, 10 shillings. The widow, Elizabeth, married 2d) Isaac Cummings and lived in Dunstable. October 30, 1774, Thomas Lund, Jonathan Lund, Phineas Lund, all of Dunstable and Edward Spalding and wife, Elizabeth of Nottingham, all children of Thomas Lund of Dunstable, deceased, sell to our brother Ephraim Lund of Dunstable, their right in the dower of our mother, Elizabeth Cummins, formerly widow of Thomas Lund.

Dec 1716 in Groton MA to Rachel Holden, daughter of Stephen and Hannah (Lawrence) Holden of Groton, and granddaughter of Richard and Martha (Fosdick) Holden of Cambridge. He served Merrimack as Field Driver, Selectman, Surveyor of Highways. In 1724 "while in the service of his country" he was captured by the Indians and conducted to Canada. In his petition to the General Court he alleges that "he suffered great hardships and was obliged to pay a great price for his ransom." He returned to his home before the expiration of many months and enlisted into the company of Capt. Eleazer Tyng, and served from June 10 to November 10, 1725. Early in that service of this company they marked to the field of Capt. Lovewell's fight and there buried twelve men who fell in that memorable engagement. In consideration of his misfortune and suffering while in captivity, the General Court of Massachusetts, in 1734, granted to William Lund four hundred acres of land which was surveyed in 1737. The grant was located in Goffstown. In 1739, in consideration of 400 pounds, he sold the grant to Francis Borland of Boston. He owned many parcels of land in Dunstable, Hudson and Merrimack.

Charles Carroll Lund-7 (Joseph S. Lund-6, Joseph Lund-5), b. abt 1831-33 in NH; married 17 Jun 1860 in Concord NH to Lydia F. French, dau of Theodore & Lydia (Pollard) French of Concord NH. She was b. abt 1838 in NH and d. 9 May 1916 in Concord NH; He was an attorney in Concord NH 1864-1880. In the 1876 directory of Concord, Charles C. Lund is a civil engineer, office Cyrus Hill's block, Main; house 67 Main.Probably the engineer who devised the Concord sewer system abt 1872. Jim Sazevich, Historian of St. Paul, Minnesota [jassaz@qwest.net] sent me the following information: Charles C. Lund and his wife Lydia, lived in St. Paul, Minnesota (my hometown) in the late 1850s, and early 1860s. Mr. Lund was an attorney, and was practicing law here, with one of his wife's relatives by the name of Theodore French, and a John B. Sanborn. Later he was in practice with Henry J. Horn, and Reuben B. Galusha. He is last listed in the St. Paul City Directory in 1864. There was no 1865 volume published for St. Paul, and Lund does not appear in the 1866 volume, or later volumes. Charles C. Lund built a beautiful home here in 1861, at 598 St. Peter St, in what is now the downtown portion of the city. The house was one of the finest homes ever built in the city of St. Paul. It was a large frame structure, two-stories high, with a three-story central tower in the front portion of the house. Unfortunately as the central business district became built with more and more office, factory, and apartment buildings, the Lund house was demolished in 1925, to make way for new construction. I have a lovely picture, taken about 1870, of the Charles C.& Lydia (French) Lund house in my personal collection of photographs. The house sheltered several prominent St. Paul families during its earlier years, and was last used as boarding house before its demolition. Hope this adds to your knowledge about the Charles C. Lund family.
