Linnekins of Boothbay, ME and St. David, NB

Janet Ireland Delorey of Shrewsbury, MA did some wonderful genealogical work on the Linnekins in early 1980s. A copy of her notes on the LINNEKINS is now in the Charlotte County Archives, in St. Andrews New Brunswick. (Contact information at end of page).

For those looking for further information on Clark, Benjamin and other Linnekins, please consult those notes. This page includes only limited material.

She used a variety of sources, from Vitals to area histories to 19th century newspaper articles to piece together the story of the Linnekins of both Boothbay, ME and of Zebedee Linnekin in Charlotte County, NB. The following draws from her notes, but includes new information, such as the 2nd wife of Zebedee Linnekin, who is Hannah Smith, as determined by a faint entry in the Anglican register in St. Andrews, NB. Also the daughter of Zebedee, Sarah, marries a Connick, circumstantially Thomas Connick in Charlotte County - Tom Moffatt

Introduction

The Linnekins were among the first families to settle in the Boothbay Harbor area of Maine, by the mid-1700s.

Zebedee Linnekin, a descendant, was a well known Privateer of the Revolutionary War and subsequently a Loyalist settler in Oak Bay, St. David Parish, Charlotte County, New Brunswick.

First Generation
---------------------------------------------

1. Dennis LINNEKIN.

While there is no record of the birth or parentage of Dennis Linnekin, there was a John Likkikin in the Boston Tax List in 1691[1].

First known deed of Dennis LINNEKIN dated 1726, reveals that he is a weaver, and that he moved from Little Compton, RI to that part of Dartmouth, MA which is now known as Westport, MA. The deed notes the purchase of a dwelling house and 7 1/2 acres of land in Dartmouth, MA from James Dyre of Little Compton, RI.

Between 1726 and 1742, Dennis Linnekin was involved in several other land transactions.

On June 24, 1742, Dennis and Martha LINNEKIN sold their last remaining property in Dartmouth, MA to Jedadiah Wood of Dartmouth, MA. From that point on, no records are to be found of this family or any male of the name in MA, RI or NH until the Rev. Waqr.

He married Martha SHRIEVE, daughter of Daniel SHRIEVE & Jane, on 30 May 1709 in Little Compton, Newport, RI. Born on 2 Jan 1690 in Little Compton, Newport, RI.

They had the following children:
2 i. John (1712-<1753)
3 ii. Daniel (1714-<1767)
4 iii. Abigail (1717-)
5 iv. Joseph (1722-ca1778)
6 v. Benjamin (1725-)


Second Generation
---------------------------------------------

2. John LINNEKIN. Born on 1 Feb 1712 in Little Compton, Newport, RI. died bef Sep 1753 in Boothbay, Lincoln Co., ME.[1] wife remarries at this time.

Two entries appear in records:
Feb. 16, 1738 - John Linnekin "of Dartmouth" married Milicent Faulkner, "of Little Compton".
Sept. 22, 1753, Milicent Linnekin married Peleg Sanford. It is assumed John Linnekin died by that time[1].

He married Millicent FALKNER, on 16 Feb 1738 in Little Compton, Newport, RI. Born bef 1720. died aft 1754.

They had the following children:
7 i. Susanna
8 ii. Mary
9 iii. Abigail

3. Daniel LINNEKIN. Born on 28 Feb 1714 in Little Compton, Newport, RI. died bef 1767 in Boothbay, Lincoln Co., ME.[1]

Daniel Lenekin signed his full signature on the 1752 petition to create a new county, showing he could write. Where he was older than Benjamin and Joseph, he likely had some schooling in RI and MA before the family left for ME, whereas his younger siblings did not.[1]

One of the earliest maps of the Boothbay region, drawn by Col. John North of Pemaquid, surveyor for the Kennebecd Proprietors, dated 1751 - one houselabeled Dl. Linakin is on Jeremy Squam Island (now Westport) on the east side. In fact, it may be that Daniel Linnekin is the earliest settler of the Boothbay region.

An earlier notice is made of Daniel in an early innkeeper/storekeeper's daybook which shows that on Aug. 25, 1750 Daniel Linekin purchased:

half pint of rum
pint of molasses
half bushel salt
pound of tobacco
bushel taurnips
10 pounds ruff tallow.
Manuscript in possession of Dr. Franklin Harris Farmere, Hayes, VA
also in same ledger, Daniel received $10 for one day's work for himself and oxen hauling stone. For three days helping twitch wood with his son and Oxen, he collected $50.

The above is firm evidence that Daniel was married at this time, since it mentions a 'son'.

In 1755 Daniel was a signer on a petition for protection (Ma. Arch. Vol. 136, p. 270-280)
In 1757 he was a member of the militia for the Dist. of Wiscassset under the command of Jonathan Williamson.
In 1761 Daniel sold land on Jeremy Squam Island to Clark Linnekin through a deed that was signed sealed and delivered in the Prov. of NH. (Linc. Co. Registry of Deeds Bk 1, p. 270)

In 1759 Daniel, designated as a mariner, and of Jeremy Squam Island, signed two notes: One with William Patten of Wells on Sept. 26, 1759 at Pownalborough and the other with Phineas Nevers of Brunswick, Physician, on June 14, 1759 at the Sheepscot River. Both sued in 1764 to recover their money.

In 1767 Clark Linnekin sold all of lot 7 on Jeremy Squam Island to satisfy his claim.

It is likely that Daniel was dead before 1767.

In support of this, Clark and the widow, Martha Linnekin, signed a note with Benjamin Linnekin.

A record:

"As a Petitioner to the Plymouth Company as per their Proclamation, the said company gave forth for the settlement of said land which I Daniel Linneken complyed with."
DanielLinniken signed, Cyprian Jeffrey and John Knight were witnesses. Deed signed sealed and delivered in the Province of New Hampshire.

 

He married Martha, ca 1737.

They had the following children:
10 i. Clark
11 ii. Zebedee (1748-1832)
12 iii. Thomas
13 iv. William
14 v. Daniel
15 vi. Martha

4. Abigail LINNEKIN. Born on 18 Sep 1717 in Little Compton, Newport, RI.

5. Joseph LINNEKIN. Born on 2 Nov 1722 in Little Compton, Newport, RI. died ca 1778.[2]

Historical Notes of the Linnekin settlers of the Boothbay region are found only in the HISTORY OF BOOTHBAY, SOUTHPORT AND BOOTHBAY HARBOUR MAINE, b y Francis B. Greene, published in 1906

The last mention of Joseph Linekin is from the Polls and Estates of Boothbay 1771[1]. In this he is shown as residing in a log house with 2 rateable polls and 1 non-rateable poll.[2]

He married Elizabeth, in 1752.[1]

They had the following children:
16 i. Joseph (1760-)
17 ii. Jenny (1763-)
18 iii. Elizabeth (1765-)
19 iv. Walter (1767-)
20 v. Rachel (1768-)
21 vi. Martha 'Patty' (1770-)

6. Benjamin LINNEKIN. Born on 12 Apr 1725 in Little Compton, Newport, RI.

First verifiable notice of him is 16 Jan 1750/51 for land on Townsend Neck[1].

It may be that Daniel was the earlier (and earliest) settler in the Boothbay area, but it also may be that his brother Daniel was first[1].

 

He married Mary.

They had the following children:
22 i. Abigail (1743-)
23 ii. Elizabeth (1745-)
24 iii. Susanna (1749-<1803)
25 iv. Sarah (1752-)

32 xi. Martha (1768-)
33 xii. James (1769-)
34 xiii. Lucy (1771-)
35 xiv. Mary (~1772-)

 

Third Generation
---------------------------------------------

7. Susanna LINNEKIN.

She married Gideon CORNELL, in 1756 in Newport, RI.

8. Mary LINNEKIN.

She married Robert CARTER, in 1772 in RI.

9. Abigail LINNEKIN.

She married Thomas JACKSON, in 1767 in RI.

10. Clark LINNEKIN.

Clark LINNEKIN signed the 1752 petition to create a new county, and the 1755 petition for protection. On the second petition of 1767 for a county, Clark Linnekin is now able to sign his name.

There is next a marriage in South Church, Ipswich, MA to Sarah Burnham of Ipswich, MA, the marriage recorded 12 Dec 1758. In the marriage intention Clark is "of Townsend" and Sarah is "of Chebaco" now Essex, MA.

The only recorded child of the marriage was Clark Jr. born in Townsend on May 9, 1764. That there were at least 4 children is derived from Clark's petition of 1777 when, incarcerated in Pownalborough Jail, he referred to "my wife and 4 children are in a most suffering condition..."

In 1761 Clark Linnekin purchased land from Daniel Linnekin on Jeremy Squam Island for the sum of £20 (Linc. Co. Registry of Deeds, Book 1, p. 270)

In 1777 Clark was arrested on suspicion of having traded with the enemy, and unable to raise the money for bail, he was incarcerated in Pownalborough Jail. His petitions for relief reveals the conditions endured by prisoners, "Little cloaths only a shirt and a thin Jaccot to ware and poor britches and no Shews and Stockings only one pair of Shews and Stockings Gave me since I have been in Gaol. - and no blankett to cover me, only to lay down in this between cold weather, l only had some hay given me, without any Coveren which is too hard for human nature to bare.."

He also stated that he believed a warrant for his arrest would never have been issured "if there had not been a old Grudge" - presumably with McCobb who issured the warrant (document in Mass. State Archives).[1]

He married Sarah BURNHAM, on 12 Dec 1758 in South Church, Ipswich, MA.[1] Born in Ipswich, Essex Co., MA.

They had the following children:
36 i. Clark (1764-)
37 ii. Daniel
38 iii. William (1770-)
39 iv. unknown

11. Zebedee LINNEKIN. Born in 1748.[1] 75 years before 1823 Petition for Assistance. died in 1832 in Oak Bay, St. David Parish, Charlotte Co., NB.[1]

By a process of elimination, it would appear that Zebedee Linnekin was a son of Daniel and Martha Linnekin. He obviously was not the son of Benjamin Linekin, whose daughter he married. Joseph Linnekin was not married until 1752 and Clark Linnekin was not married until 1758. It should also be noted that the first two children of Zebedee, Mary and Benjamin, carried the names of his wife's parents while the name of the third child was Martha. This suggests that Martha was named after his mother[1].

Further, in 1777 Zebedee purchased a tract of land in Tenants Harbour from Clark Linnekin, another presumed son of Daniel and Martha Linnekin. Of the known Linnekin settlers, Daniel Linnekin and Martha are probably the parents of Zebedee Linnekin[1].

The late Albert J. Smalley, historian of the St. George area, made an interesting observation about Zebedee Linnekin when he wrote, "...no road where Route 131 now is from Tenants Harbor to Smalley Town. There was no sign of a village at Tenants Harbor and no road up as far as the turn by the church and Zeb Linekin and Tom Henderson were not in favor of people traipsing around on their property which took in most of the land east of the marsh."[3]

In a Memorial of Zebedee Linnekin dated March 24, 1786 seeking compensation from the British Crown for financial losses, stated that prior to the war he was comfortably settled at St. Georges in the Province of Maine on a farm whereon were improved above 25 acres. At the outbreak of the war, he openly avowed his loyalty which caused him to be labelled as an enemy to the states. He paid a fine of $30 rather than go to the army for which he was drafted and, to avoid the oath of Fidelity to the States, joined the British at Penobscot in 1781; which he would have done earlier if it would not have involved his family in ruin[1].

Upon leaving his farm, it was taken possession of by General Peleg Wadsworth who commanded the wife and family of Zebedee leave it. Zebedee then bought a house for £65 and made another £10 of improvements which he sold at the time of evacuation for £10 rather than to lose it entirely in Oct. 1783[1].

Much has been written about the notorious Tory, "LINNEKIN" who was reputed to be the leader of a gang of privateers who marauded along the Thomaston Coast. Zebedee Linnekin, by his own depositions, stated that after joining the British at Penobscot, he went out first in a tender waiting for the 'Nautilus'. He afterwards engaged in privateering and was also a pilot to several men-of-war, including the 'Jupiter', the 'Albany', and others. Thus we must assume that he was the Linnekin "well nigh as much feared as Long" who was to be brought to justice[1].

In a petition in 1800 Zebedee requests land for himself and his sons Benjamin and William who are described as grown men (PANB file S31-p40). He stretched the truth, given that William was born in 1791 and hardly qualified as a grown man. In 1801 he referred to three sons he was anxious to settle near him "lest they should be inclined to quit this country, and settle in the United States, where they have some relations residing."[1]

Zebedee had two marriages, the first to his cousin Susanna Linnekin, the second to the Hannah that may possibly be a daughter of Paul Dusten.

Children, from Loyalist Muster, of Zebedee and Susanna
Mary - over 10 in 1784
Benjamin - over 10 in 1784
Martha - under 10 in 1784
Sarah - under 10 in 1784
Jennet - under 10 in 1784

to these can be added the following:
William - born 1791, St. David
possibly Daniel born 1793-94

2nd wife Hannah probably had Abner, Priscilla and Ann.[1]

He describes the situation with William Vance that occurred in the late 1790s, and the far more recent loss of his house, barn, orchard, fences and crops on his land adjacent to Oak Bay. Notes he has had to fix up a hovel for his family, and his losses have amounted to not less than £400 including the whole crop (200 bushels of grain, 30 tons of hay), with the land much scorched.[1]

Hannah LINNEKIN received assistance as a Loyalist Pensioner, at least through the years from 1842 to 1850. In the 1842 Loyalist Pension file her age is given as 65 - this would make her born 1777.

It should be noted that the date of her arrival in New Brunswick is given as 1792 in the Census of 1851. At that time Hannah LINNEKIN was living with her daughter and husband Hill on Hills Point, Oak Bay, St. David Parish, Charlotte Co., NB[6]

15. Martha LINNEKIN.
