  11. In Ipswich, the oldest part of town has remained to an exceptional degree intact. The terrain and the settlers’ need for mutual support and protection kept it a compact town in its first century. The houses invited remodeling but not demolition. The coal grate and central heating unfortunately robbed the town of some of its great medieval chimneys. Small shops replaced residential dwellings at the foot of the hill leading from Meeting House Green. There were the pressures of change, but the pressures of growth were not great until the twentieth century was well advanced. The wise planning and solid building of the first generation held the old part of town comparatively unchanged. Recently, more organized efforts toward preservation were called for, as the erosion of Ipswich’s architectural heritage approached the rate of nearly one good colonial house lost each year. Many of these attempts had their origin in the Ipswich Historical Society, founded in 1890 by the Reverend Thomas Franklin Waters, the author of a two-volume history of Ipswich, volume 1 published in 1905 and volume 2 in 1917. Because they contain a history of virtually every significant house in the town, these two volumes can be considered the base from which all organized preservation schemes have originated. http://www.historici...orical-society/ historicipswich@gmail.com Like this View full record
  12. The Georgetown Historical Society, Georgetown, Massachusetts, was incorporated in 1962, and is open to all who wish to join. The membership now numbers approximately 150 persons. The original home for the society was The Dickinson-Pillsbury-Witham House, a circa 1700 First Period structure located in the northwest corner of town. This house was sold (with preservation covenants) in 1975 when the Captain Samuel Brocklebank house was made available to the organization by the Spaulding family. The Brocklebank house has been home to the society ever since and has become a repository for the many hundreds of artifacts from Georgetown’s past which have been collected by the members. The Society is in a sense a trustee of the town's heritage and as such views the gathering and preserving of mementos from the past as an on-going process. http://www.georgetow...calsociety.com/ Contact Us: By email-click here By regular mail: Georgetown Historical Society PO Box 376 Georgetown, MA. 01833 View full record

  20. The Old Newark Burying Ground AN ACCOUNT OF SOME OF OUR ANCESTORS WHO WERE BURIED THERE. An article in the "Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey" by E.A. Baldwin and R.W. Cook entitled "Essex County Gravestones" gives an account of the earliest burying ground in Newark, New Jersey which was located where the present Branford Place runs from Broad Street to Halsey Street and adjacent area. Burials took place from the late 1600's until 1818. After 1790 most burials were made in the graveyard behind the New Presbyterian Church across Broad Street. The old cemetery gradually deteriorated, becoming a dumping ground for refuse, and interfering with the orderly progress of the city. Over a period of many years, through legislative actions and court cases, the city strove to eliminate the burial ground and turn the property to other uses. In 1887 the city began removal of the remains, but it was not until about 1900 that arrangements to dismantle the cemetery were completed. To receive the remains, a crypt was prepared in Fairmount Cemetery, Newark, under a monument dedicated to the first settlers of the city. The gravestones from the old burial ground were mounted along the walls of the crypt (which was an underground passageway, about six feet wide and possibly eight feet high) around the foundation of the monument. Unearthing of the old cemetery was completed in 1888 and the ones which had been dug up were placed in wooden boxes. These boxes were deposited in the crypt, November 26, 1889, being stacked in three parts of the passageway to a height of perhaps five feet. Services of recommittal and dedication of the monument took place on December 19, 1889. In 1890, before the crypt was closed, Mr. James Swinnerton, at the request of the city authorities, spent several days with a candle, making pen-and-ink sketches of the devices and inscriptions of the tombstones which lined the walls of the crypt. In 1925 the New Jersey Historical Society published abstracts of the inscriptions in its Proceedings (New Series, Vol. X, pp. 193, 321, 424). This article relied on Dr. John S. Condit's 1847 copy of the inscriptions (owned by the Historical Society), checked against Mr. Swinnerton's sketches. Over the years, doubt has been expressed about the accuracy of some of the inscriptions given in this article. and it was believed that a check of the stones in the crypt might clear up some of the questions. Accordingly the Genealogical Society of New Jersey made arrangements with officials of the Fairmount Cemetery and the proper authorities of the city of Newark, for permission to enter the crypt and copy the inscriptions found there. This work was done during several visits made in the fall of 1955. The actual copying and checking of inscriptions proceeded under great difficulty. The wooden boxes containing the bones had completely disintegrated over the years and it was not always possible to push the loose bones aside in order to examine gravestones set in the wall. Because of this, some of the inscriptions could not positively be checked; and if there were any gravestones set in the floor, under the bones, they too could not be reached. Most of the inscriptions, in any case, were found and copied. Afterward, the copy thus obtained from the original stones was checked against the Swinnerton sketches, now in possession of the Newark Public Library. Below, as a consequence, is a complete abstract of the inscriptions from the tombstone in the Fairmount Cemetery crypt, largely taken from the stones themselves and doubtless the best obtainable. Please see the "Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey" article for more complete information.

  22. In 1701, 13,500 acres west of Newark was purchased for $325 (or about 2.5-cents an acre) from Loantique, Taphow, Manshum and others. The original deed burned in a house fire in 1745. Descendants of the signers of the original deed promptly signed a new document. These deeds were challenged as being unlawful. According to a survey in 1746, only 35 families lived in the area. When Samuel Baldwin was arrested in 1745 for trespassing on his own land, his neighbors armed themselves with clubs, axes and crow-bars and descended on the jail to liberate him. The struggle against the Proprietors continued until 1755. Daniel Lamson and John Condict acted as agents for the Landowner's Committee and pleaded the settlers case to the King in England.
