Timothy Perley1

b. about 1653, d. January 25, 1718
  • Reference: 3846f
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Timothy Perley was born about 1653 in Ipswich, Massachusetts.2
  • He was the son of Allen Perley and Susanna Bokesen, or Bokenson.1
  • Mr. Perley inherited his father's homestead and made it his home. He owned land, "very mean meadow and swamp," in Boxford, which continued in the family name for several generations. His farm had an extensive area. It had been known for its excellent fruits, particularly for several varieties of apples. There were numerous aged pear trees on this farm, a few of which bore delicious fruits into the 20th century.

    Town offices are seldom bestowed upon persons who live remote from the center, however worthy and efficient they may be. Timothy, being removed six miles from official trust, exercised only such duty as the law may impose upon every discreet and judicious townsman. He was surveyor of highways and doubtless attended to other civil duties. He took the oath of allegiance in 1678. He had some experience in the merciless witchcraft delusion. He and his wife were witnesses in the case of their neighbor, James How's wife, Elizabeth, who was accused of witchery.2
  • Timothy married Deborah (?) about 1680.2
    The signature of Timothy Perley's widow as she signed the bond preliminary to settling of her husband's estate in 1728
  • Timothy Perley in at Topsfield, Massachusetts, on June 24, 1705. They were members of the society from their marriage and contributed to defray its expenses.2
  • In 1709, ten years before his death, he confirmed to his son Stephen, for love and affection and to encourage him in his life work, half of his buildings and land, which was valued at £336. After that, in 1713, he purchased of the town of Ipswich land valued at £22.2
  • Timothy died on January 25, 1718 (Savage says 1719.) In the inventory of his estate, made for probate by Abraham Howe, Jacob Peabody and Caleb Foster, are mentioned one ox, two cows, two young cattle and one swine. The estate was appraised at £354. His widow was his administratrix till her death. Thomas Perley was appointed to succeed her 26 Jul 1736. His minister's rate was, in the year 1689, 4 shillings, when his brother Samuel's was 5 shillings 4 pence, a rating that showed, at that time, the relative value of their estates.3

Capt. William Perley of Boxford

b. February 11, 1735/36, d. March 29, 1812
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Capt. William Perley of Boxford was born on February 11, 1735/36 in East Boxford, Massachusetts, on the site of the 1906 residence of Mr. D. DeWitt C.Mighill . When a young man, he bought the land which, in 1906, constituted the Boxford poorfarm and he built there the house which is now the Boxford almshouse. That was his only home; it descended to his son Abraham.

    Mr. Perley retained all the spirit and patriotism of his own family and inherited much of that romantic daring so characteristic of his uncle Israel, the renowned Gen. Putnam. In January, 1775, he was elected captain of a Boxford company of Minute Men. It was his first military office. The company consisted of fifty-two men, and drilled weekly. On that beautiful, yet tragic, morning, 19 Apr 1775, they and two other Boxford companies marched to the conflict. The British had already begun their retreat, when the Boxford men arrived, but the latter heartily joined in pursuit and helped play mischief with the red-coats. They were attached to Col. James Frye's regiment, and encamped with the twenty thousand around Boston. May 28, the town gave him an order of £16 to find blankets for the company. Next we find him following Col. Prescott across Charlestown Neck, on the momentous night of the 16 Jun, and engaged in fortifying Bunker Hill, in throwing up those breastworks that so startled the British the next morning and gave the lie to their complainant midnight assurance, "All's well." Capt. Perley and his company were in the battle that ensued; they fought with ammunition, swords, clubbed muskets and missiles against bigotry, superciliousness and tyranny, in defense of home and its loved ones, with all their heart and soul and strength. Eight of them fell dead upon the field.

    I. N. Tarbox's "Life of Gen. Israel Putnam" relates, that, "Prescott's, Frye's and Bridges' regiments sustained the heaviest slaughter, because they were directly in the path where the British broke through. . . . These regiments who stayed to the last deserved to be crowned as heroes."

    Frothingham's "Siege of Boston," second edition, says that the three regiments were in the redoubt, but among the officers does not name Capt. Wm. Perley. His name is found, however, on the original papers at Washington, D. C. Several Hessians taken prisoners during the war lived with him at his Boxford home.

    In Mar 1776, Capt. Perley was chosen on the committee of safety for the town. In 1777 he was on a committee of three to procure money to pay soldiers. In Mar 1780, he was one of a committee of five to hire soldiers.

    On 16 Aug 1779, he was one of a commission chosen by the town to regulate the current prices of merchandise, labor, etc. He held numerous town offices, in which he was selectman and overseer, 1772, 1773, and 1779, school committeeman 1802 and 1806; town treasurer 1781 to 1788 inclusive, eight years.1
  • He was the son of Capt. Francis Perley and Huldah Putnam.
  • William married Sarah Clark on March 26, 1761 in Topsfield.
  • William married Anna Porter on January 22, 1793.2
  • William died on March 29, 1812 at age 76. He made his will 13 Mar 1812 "being advanced in years and laboring under bodily infirmities." His will was proved 17 April following, and his son Abraham was the executor. His probate inventory is $7197.01.2
