bullet Roger CONANT [GOVERNOR] Photo was born on 9 Apr 1592 in Budleigh, Devonshire, England. He emigrated in 1623 from Plymouth, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts. He died in 1679 in Salem, Essex Co., Massachusetts.
Roger Conant was born in East Budleigh, Devonshire, England in 1592, the youngest of eight children. In 1623 he emigrated to Plymouth with his wife, Sarah and son, Caleb. However, he was uncomfortable with the strict Pilgrim society in Plymouth and moved his family to Nantasket in 1624. In the late autumn of 1625, Conant was invited by the Rev. John White and other members of the Dorchester Company to move to their fishing settlement on Cape Ann as their governor. Still looking for more favorable conditions for a settlement, he led a group of people to Naumkeag, now Salem, in 1626, and continued as their governor. In 1627 a patent was solicited from England and it was obtained by a group led by John Endicott who arrived in Naumkeag in 1628. Endicott and the other settlers of the New England Company now owned the rights to Naumkeag. Fortunately for the peaceful continuity of the settlement, Conant remained in Salem and, despite what must have been a disappointment for him, acceded to Endicott's authority as the new governor.

Conant built the first Salem house on what is Essex Street today, almost opposite the Town Market. In 1639, his was one of the signatures on the building contract for enlarging the meeting house in Town House Square for the First Church in Salem. This document remains part of the town records at City Hall. He was active in the affairs of the town throughout his life. In 1679, he died at the age of 87.

This dramatic, cloaked statue of Roger Conant faces the Salem Common and stands atop a huge boulder brought from the woods near the floating bridge at Lynn. Artist Henry H. Kitson designed this heroic bronze statue for the Conant Family Association and the statue was dedicated on June 17, 1913.

Another short biography of Roger follows:

Roger Conant was baptized 9 Apr. 1592 in All Saints Church in the parish of East Budleigh, Devonshire, England. He apparently served a seven year apprenticeship in London as a salter. He married 11 Nov. 1618, in St. Ann's parish (or St. Annis) of Black Friars, London, SARAH HORTON, daughter of Thomas and Margaret (Culverwell) Horton. He came to Plymouth, New England in the ship named Ann in 1623 with his brother Christopher, his wife Sarah and his son Caleb. He removed shortly to Nantasket. In 1624/5, he was chosen by the Dorchester Company to govern their colony at Cape Ann. It was an unruly bunch at Cape Ann with little discipline and little profit was made for the company. In 1626 the company paid the men their wages and offered transportation back to England. It was the unruly bunch that returned to England but Roger and several others, free of the scum, decided to stick it out. From that time they were free of any obligation or control of the company and were entitled to no aid from it. Roger and his faithful companions soon removed to a place the Indians called Naumkeag which later became Salem. He is listed as the first governor of Mass. Roger died 19 Nov. 1679, in his eighty-eighth year. Sarah was living in 1666 but probably died shortly thereafter.

Must thank you for some real help, if indirect help, with the Walton
family. As I think I told you, I haven't done any serious genealogy
research for a few years and decided to get back at it for a number of
reasons. Just started again the past several weeks.

Your file matched my records on the Walton's - to Rev. William. But I
didn't have all those ancestors of Sarah Maverick and Elizabeth Cooke.
I used those folks to search some online data bases and found files with
Rev. William's parents, Robert Walton and Margaret Fitzwilliams and his
grandparents, William Walton (1556) and Ann (Anne) Mays.

Then last Saturday I took in the Mormon Family Center in Oakland and
found a book called "The Walltons of Brunswick County, Virginia;
Descendents of George and Elizabeth (Rowe) Walton" by Joe C. Tinney of
Waco, Texas. Early in his book he traces a couple of Walton lines
including the Walton line starting wtih Robert Walton and Margaret

I've attached a GED formated file of Rev. William Walton's ancestors -
about 24 people going back to Simon de Walton, b 1175, d 1266, although
we might be better served to begin with the next fellow, Sir Roger de
Walton. Seems Simon was clerk to King John (of Magna Carta fame) but
also Chaplin to King Henry III and the Bishop of Norwich. Since
clergymen in those days were suppose to be unmarried and celebate - some
researchers have either found, or invented, a nephew of the same name as
the source of the line. I much prefer the bishop's story, myself.

Another interesting piece in this line concerns the family land
holdings, Great Stoughton Manor, which was in the family for a few
hundreds of years. It was lost when the owner sided with the
revolutionaries to arrest, indict, convict and behead Charles I. At the
restoration ten years later when Charles II was given the throne, this
Walton, owner of Great Stoughton Manor, seems to have booked (probably a
good idea) and lost the homestead. This fellow would have been a
contempary and some kind of cousin to Rev. William and Samuel Walton,
Sr. Charles I was beheaded in 1649 and the restoration was in 1660.

The manor came into the family before the time of a knight, Sir John de
Walton who resided there in the 1390's. It may have come from Sir Robert
Aspall, and John's mother's family. I was cramped for time - definitely
will go back and get the chronology straight. As an old history major
in college, who still can't put down a well-written history, it is a
hoot to find some "family" connection. Kind of livens up the period.

Anyhow, I'm attaching the ged file - let's see if it get's through O.K.
I'm in Salt Lake on business the rest of the week and then on vacation
next week. My updated file with all this stuff will be posted at one of
my web sites by the end of the month. The home page (under new
constuction) is listed below.

Take care - and keep in touch.

Conventional wisdom is often neither.
