Nehemiah Jewett was born in Rowley, Massachusetts to Joseph Jewett, who immigrated to Massachusetts from England and represented Rowley as a representative on five occasions. Nehemiah Jewett became a noticeable figure in Essex County, Massachusetts by 1675 when much of the local legal transactions were written by him.[1]

In 1689, he was elected to represent Rowley at the Massachusetts General Court for the first time. He was reelected to serve Rowley as a delegate for fourteen more years between 1689 and his death. From 1693 to 1694 and in 1701, he served as the Speaker of the House.[2] During his tenure he compensated those damaged by the Salem witch trials. In 1711 and 1712, he was Justice of the Session Court.[3]
