  • David Perley was born on October 25, 1702 in Rowley, Massachusetts.2
  • He was the son of Samuel Perley and Abigail Cummings.1
  • David Perley was baptized on July 11, 1714 in Topsfield, Massachusetts.2
  • David married Elizabeth Jewett on June 18, 1729.2
  • Mr. Perley lived where his father had, a few rods west of the 1906 residence of David Eri Perley, and cultivated the parental estate. He was some seven miles from the official center of the town, and so was not burdened with official trust. He was tithing man, 1737 and 1750; surveyor of highways, 1757; was sergeant in Capt. Thurston's company before 1749, and bore the title long afterwards. He was one of the original signers to the covenant at the formation of the Linebrook church, 15 Nov 1749. He was chosen a Ruling Elder in the church, 1756, but declined to serve, believing the office to exist only in the pastor.3
  • David married Sarah Lummus of Ipswich on September 22, 1768.2
  • David died on September 1, 1787 at age 84. His will was dated 12 Jun 1779, and provided tor his widow yearly, so long as she shall remain single, the east end of his house, eight cords of good wood, sawed and split for the fire, two barrels of cider, and as many apples as she wants to use, "if the orchard shall produce so much," one gallon of rum, six quarts of molasses, six lbs. of sugar, six lbs. of tallow, one gallon of lamp oil, six lbs. of good sheep's wool and six lbs. of good flax. Besides other devises his grandson Samuel Perley had land bought of Nathaniel Brocklebank, eight acres lying west of his barn, and about six and a half acres elsewhere. His son John had the homestead, and was the executor. —Probate registry, 591: 115. The will was proved 1 Oct 1787; his estate was appraised by Jeremiah Searl, Francis Pingry and Daniel Dresser, 16 Oct 1787, at £542 13s. The inventory mentions two oxen, four cows, four young cattle, two spring calves, one horse, fourteen sheep, two young steers, one swine, and a pew in the Linebrook church.2

  • David Perley was born on May 10, 1776 in Rowley, Massachusetts. He settled upon the parental estate, where his son David Eri later lived.

    He enlisted in the service in the 1812 war, and received therefor of his town, Apr 1815, $10.63. He was, 27 May 1830, a petitioner for the incoporation of the Second Parish in Rowley, now Georgetown. His nephew John writes that he lived a few months with his Uncle David, when the latter was about sixty-five years old. He says: "I still see him with his staff in hand wending his way on some mission of labor or business, singing his favorite air, 'I'll take my staff and travel on.' He was fond of singing and withal was an inveterate joker. He was stout built, of medium height, had flowing curly hair, was straight as an arrow, and his countenance was open, genial, pleasant. He lived in a quiet, secluded nook of rural beauty; the scenery was surpassingly lovely, which accounts, in some measure, for his happy, genial disposition. The face of the territory is undulate with forest hills and pasture knolls, with arable plains and green, mossy meadows, with meandering brooklet. How delightful the forests, in still, dreamy October days, decked in their many-hued regalia! How sparkled the orchard after a gentle winter rain and the frost-embrace of night had secured on twig and limb its store of crystal waters, scintillating as gems of rarest worth and beauty, in the radiance of a morning sun! What gratifying sweetness, as spring brought back the babbling of the brook, the chirp of the squirrel, the chatter of the woodchuck, the lowing of the cattle, and filled the broad expanse of sky with birds and melody. How picturesque and sweet the home of Uncle David.

    " I occasionally spent much time at Uncle David's in my boyhood. He gave me my first lesson in astronomy. We had been husking corn in the barn. When we returned to the house, the whole heavens appeared one vast sea of sparkling crystals. The northern constellations shone with unusual brilliancy. Attracted probably by the splendor, he pointed to the Dipper and told how by it to find the Polar star—a lesson that often recurred to me when pursuing that study in school!

    "He related to me, how my father 'crossed the Rubicon.' It occurred in the work of marshing, as it was called, when probably my grandfather was in his prime, and 'the boys,' father, and Uncles David and Samuel, were sprightly and helpful. On this occasion, a deep and narrow creek ran between them and the marsh lot. They were threading their way up the side of it, in search of a fording place, when to my father a circumvention was suggested. He threw his luggage to the opposite bank, all but one hay pole. That pole he planted in the middle of the creek, expecting by a masterly muscular effort to spring up upon the perpendicular pole and be carried to the opposite side. The muscular effort was a success, but when the pole assumed a perpendicular, it sank and stuck in the mud, with my father clinging to the top of it. It was an object lesson with a practical turn, always to be remembered."2
  • He was the son of John Perley and Lydia Perley.1
