Genealogical and Family History of the State of Maine, Volume 1 by Henry Sweetser Burrage, Albert Roscoe Stubbs
Humphrey Bradstreet came from Ipswich, England, in the ship "Elizabeth," William Andrews, master, the last of April, 1634, bringing with him his wife Bridget and children as follows: Hannah, aged nine; John, aged three; Martha, aged two; and Mary, aged one year. At that time his age is given as forty years, and that of his wife as thirty years.
He settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts, where he received a considerable grant of land on the north side of Egypt river, his being the most northerly grant made by the town of Ipswich; the northerly boundary of this farm was the southerly boundary of the town of Rowley, settled in 1639, and in 1784 the farm for the convenience of its occupants was set off from Ipswich to Rowley.
From the location of this farm, after the Rowley settlement, the Bradstreets were associated almost wholly with Rowley, having their membership in the Rowley church, burying their dead in the Rowley cemetery, and training with the Rowley military company. In the following lists of children, where not otherwise stated, the births are from Ipswich records and the baptism from the Rowley church record.
Humphrey Bradstreet was made a freeman May 6, 1635, and was a representative for Ipswich to the general court in the same year; he died in the summer of 1655.
His will, dated July 21, 1655, proved September 25, 1655, directs, among other things, that son Moses is to have the home farm after the decease of his mother; "son John is to have the farm at Muddy river. His wife Bridget Bradstreet died in November, 1665. Her will is dated October 16, 1665. The children of Humphrey and Bridget Bradstreet were: Hannah, John, Martha, Mary, Sarah, Rebecca and Moses
