Wing Fort House

The oldest house in New England owned and occupied continuously by the same family for over three centuries. Built in 1641, this house was traditionally called the Fort House because of its possible use as a refuge from Indian attack. In 1646 it became the home of Stephen Wing, one of the early settlers of Sandwich, son of the Reverend John Wing and Deborah Bachelor. Stephen and his descendants occupied the house from then on, adding on as families grew and changing tastes dictated. Now restored, it is furnished almost entirely with Wing family antiques showing the different periods of its long history. The house is maintained by the Wing Family of America and open to the public.

Migration
Stephen Wing's widowed mother, Deborah, joined her father the Rev. Stephen Bachiler who was determined to immigrate to New England with his children and grandchildren in 1632. So in March of 1632, Rev. Stephen Bachiler, his third wife, Helen Mason Bachiler, and Deborah Bachiler Wing, her four sons, John, Daniel, Stephen and Matthew, among many others, boarded the old wine ship, the William & Francis, and spent eighty-eight days floundering across the Atlantic ocean. Our weary, seasick ancestors arrived at Massachusetts Bay Colony on June 5, 1632.
