Amos Perley1

b. May 3, 1699, d. late Mar 1748
  • Reference: 3846adb
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Amos Perley was born on May 3, 1699 in Topsfield, Massachusetts.3
  • He was the son of Thomas Perley and Abigail Towne.1
  • Mr. Perley removed to Boxford with his father's family, when about ten years of age.3
  • Amos married Margaret Cogswell on March 1, 1721/22, at which time he chose his home where his father's and grandfather's had been, on a knoll at the right of the lane leading to "ye Great Meadowe." He was a prominent citizen of the town and the parish. He was a selectman 1746, a constable 1738, a juror in 1737, an overseer of the poor 1746, a surveyor of highways 1737 and 1745. For 1752 and for several years following, he was clerk of the First Parish. He joined the First Church 7 Jan 1727; he bought pew No. 11, 17 Sep 1745; his "servant Jane" was baptised 7 Apr 1745.4
  • He probly died in late Mar 1748. He was sick when he made his will 14 Jan 1747-8, and lived thereafter but a short time. His will, proved at Ipswich 11 Apr 1748, by Jeremiah, David and Thomas Perley, conveyed to his wife Margaret all his household furniture, and required his son Amos to find her a horse to ride upon; devised to Amos five acres of land bought of Benjamin Rogers, and all the rest of his real estate to his three sons Amos, Nathaniel, and Enoch, who died, however, before the division, the account of which covers seven pages of the probate records. His widow was appointed guardian of the minor children.

    In the inventory of his estate, silver spoons—a prelude of modern social distinction—are mentioned, and two negroes: "Old nigro £80; young negro £15," which explains "servant Jane" above. His buildings and land were valued at £2900, and the probate account mentions 2 coffins, 2 graves and sundry small things for the funerals of Enoch and Sarah £1 7s 8d.4

Amos Perley1

b. perhaps 1779, d. 1837
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Amos Perley was born perhaps 1779.
  • He was the son of Nathan Perley and Sarah Symonds.1
  • Amos Perley was a school teacher. In an advertisement of his school to begin in Salem 10 Apr 1810, he "tenders his grateful acknowledgments for past favors," and will limit the numbers of his scholars to thirty. He "will open a department for females." The branches to be taught were reading, writing, arithmetic, geography, English grammar, drawing, painting, embroidery and various kinds of needlework. The tuition was four to five dollars. It is understood that he and his wife sometime taught in the Bradford Academy. Both were pupils there and may have been pupil-assistants, though there may be no record of it.1
  • He married Hannah Carleton of Bradford on March 31, 1810, and had no children, though both were very fond of them. Relinquishing teaching, they retired to a farm in Dracut, Massachusetts.1
  • As of 1816, Amos Perley and Hannah Carleton of Bradford lived at Bradford, Massachusetts, and had seven pupil-boarders.1
  • 1818, he organized the first Sunday School in Dracut. He was a deacon in the Central Congregational Church there from 19 Dec 1827.1
  • In 1837 in Dracut, Massachusetts, while gathering apples, a sudden pain seized his arm. The pain increased; it became severe in the extreme. The cause was never explained; his death ensued a week later.

    He made his will 2 Nov 1837. It was proved 9 Jan 1838. He is styled yeoman. He bequeathed his brothers Edmund and Asa, his sisters Mehitable Bennett, wife of Sewell; Lydia Metcalt, widow, and Sarah Keen, wife of James, and his mother, Sarah Perley, one dollar each; his niece, Mehitable Smart five hundred dollars. He desired that Niece Mehitable might continue to live with his widow as usual and share her interest and affection. His wife Hannah C. had the rest of the estate and was nominated executrix.2
