Stephen Perley1

b. October 7, 1770, d. April 13, 1855
  • Reference: 3846fbbf
  • THIS LISTING HAS NOT YET BEEN AUDITED, AND MAY NOT BE ACCURATE; A.
  • Stephen Perley was born on October 7, 1770 in Linebrook Parish, Ipswich, Massachusetts, on the site opposite the residence of Abel Spofford Howe.2
  • He was the son of Allen Perley and Martha Fowler.1
  • As of about 1787, Stephen Perley lived at Laconia, Belknap County, New Hampshire, (then known as Meredith Bridge), as clerk for Horton & Boynton. He soon after engaged in business for himself. His father-in-law built a gristmill and a sawmill on the Gilford side—then Gilmanton or New Salem—upon the mill grant. The sawmill was located on the northerly side of Mill bridge and descended to Dudley Ladd. The gristmill was on the southerly side of the bridge, about three rods below, and it descended to Jonathan Ladd. The mill grant descended to Mehitable Ladd, Mr. Perley's wife, which extended from Sanbornton Bay to the river near where the house of Hon. E. A. Hibbard now stands, and through which Mr. Perley cut the canal that leads to the car shops, built by the Randet Car Co.

    Mr. Perley was an extensive general merchant; his store occupied the corner of Main and Mill streets, where he was in trade more than fifty years. Besides this, he built mills, oil and clothing, where Messrs. Russell was, in 1880, located, on the north side of Mill street; a whitesmith shop with trip hammer for scythes, axes, etc; a grain distillery, and potash works where the Belknap brick mill later stood, and a three-story dwelling where Knight & Atkinson were later in trade, which Mr. Perley sold to the company, and invested the same in stock. It was the first cotton factory so called, built there. Later it was purchased by the late Daniel Avery and chartered the Cotton and Woolen Manufacturing Company. On the canal, he built oil, carriage, threshing and other mills and sold the whole to the Winnipiseogee Lake Company, who later leased the same to other parties. He was largely engaged in moving real estate—he purchased and sold lands, opened and graded streets and laid out building lots. Some of the streets are Mill street; Cross street to Canal street, Water street half-way to Bay street, and Main street to Oak street crossing.

    Mr. Perley sold the clothing mill to Samuel H. and Nathan Bean, who continued the business while they lived, after which time it was sold to James P. Morrison. He sold the oil mill to John and Simeon Chase, who made and repaired machinery. The nail mill he sold to Cheany & Co., who manufactured wheel-head, bobbins and spools. These embrace all on the north side of Mill bridge. The south side was sold to Daniel Tucker, who continued the white and black- smithing. The location was that later occupied by Lewis Busiel's mill. Coopering was also carried on by Mr. Perley. Perley block was, in 1906, a large brick structure in Laconia.

    He represented the town in the State Legislature, was postmaster for upwards of thirty years, and was one of the electors of Martin Van Buren for President of the United States in 1840.3
    These autographs are from family letters written 2 Dec 1829 and 10 Jul 1843.
    STEPHEN PERLEY, ESQ.
  • Stephen married Abigail Ladd as his first wife.4
  • Stephen married Mehitable Ladd as his second wife.4
  • Stephen died on April 13, 1855 at age 84 of lithic disease.

    Stephen Perley, Esq., was one of the fathers of Meredith Bridge; he was the oldest individual in the place at the time of his death; he was strictly honest in all his dealings; he commanded the respect of old and young; he was "genteel" in his manners, genial in his disposition, and dignified in his deportment; he was a resident of his adopted town for more than sixty years. It was truly said at his funeral, attended by Rev. Young: "The history of this life was the history of our village."

    His epitaph is "Rest is sweet."5
