  • Notes 
    • "In 1701 a William Bryant bought an eight-acre house lot with a house and barn from Joshua Davis of Boston. This land came from the estate of Joshua's grandfather, George Davis, an original settler of Reading, through the will of George's widow, Sarah (Clark) (Davis) Rist. Five years later William bought an adjoining house lot from his brother-in-law, William Arnold. This land had come from his "father William Arnold" and originally "from grandfather Clark". This grandfather Clark was Thomas Cloark, another original settler of Reading. These transactions were used as part of the proof that Sarah and Thomas Clark were brother and sister and children of William Clark of Salem (Frances Davis McTeer and Frederick C. Warner, "The Children of Mr. William Clarke of Salem, MA," from The American Genealogist, 39 [1963]: 100)." -- this passage excerpted from the New England Historical & Genealogical Register, Vol. CXXXVII, 1983, p. 247 found in the Ontario Public Library, Ontario, NY.

      George Davis was a weaver and ship owner. George and Sarah had 3 sons, Benjamin, Joseph and one other, and 5 daughters (total of 8 children). George left a house, lands and meadow worth 173 Pounds, yarn, books, guns, joiner's tools, horse equipment. - from The American Genealogist, Vol. 39, p. 100.

      2136. George DAVIS was born in 1610 in Lynn, Essex, MA, USA. He died on 14 Jul 1667 in Reading, Middlesex, MA, USA.(source: Vital Records of Reading MA. pg. 512) Actually died at Cape Fear, N.C. He has Ancestral File number FP9S-BT.

      105 THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST

      Soon after George Davis's death, certainly before 1572, Sarah was married for a second time, to Nicholas Rist of Reading [Eaton, 109 110). The will of Sarah Rist of Redding, written 20 Sept. 1697, probated 15 May 1598, touching the worldly estate that my former husband George Davis and my son Benjamin Davis gave to me by their last wills for to dispose of, give and devise the same as follows: to grandson Joshua Davis all ye Homestead.... that is ye same that I now dwell in.. with all the lotts, divisions and dividents. . . .thereto belonging, Joshua to pay to my daughters the legacies hereafter mentioned: to daughter Sarah Cole, to daughter Hannah Boutell, to son-in-law Timothy Wylye [mentioned as William Clarke's nephew and son of Thomas Clarke's neighbor], to daughter Mary Damon, to Susannah Richardson. Executor: Joshua Davis, grandson. Witnesses: Benjamin Burnap, Doroas Burnap, Elizabeth Arnold. [Middlesex Co. Prob. 9:399.] This last witness was the orphaned granddaughter of Thomas Clarke of Reading. Elizabeth Arnold was born at Reading 17 June 1079, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Clarke) Arnold; she married in Woburn, 22 Dec. 1699, James Richardson. At the time she signed this will both her parents and both her Clarke grandparents were dead. Was she then living with her next of kin, her grandfather's sister Sarah Rist? On 11 Aug. 1701 Joshua Davis of Boston, Joyner, and wife Rebecca sold to William Bryant of Reading, blacksmith, inter alia, a house lot bounded by land of William Arnold deceased [Thomas Clarke's son in law]; also a meadow bounded by William Eaton and Major Swaine [Thomas Clarke's stepson); also a parcel of meadow and swamp-land which lyeth undivided between Nicholas Fist and me Joshua Davis, arain bounded by land of William Arnold deceased. All these lands were located in Reading. Witnesses: Jeremiah Swayne, Jn0 White, Joshua Eaton. [Middlesex Deeds, 13:12.1 This grantor, Sarah Rist's grandson, Joshua Davis son of Joseph Davis, was born at Reading 29 Jan. 1673, married there 29th May 1697 Rebecca Peirce, daughter of John and Ruth (Bishop) Peirce [TAG, supra, 25:163j. The grantee, William Bryant, blacksmith, of Reading, had married there on 5 May 1701 Rebecca Arnold, Thomas Clarke's granddaughter, born at Reading 6 Dec. 1661, daughter of William and Elizabeth (Clarke) Arnold.

Executors: Goodwife Rice and John Damon, who was also a witness. Inventory of the estate of Benjamin Davis who departed this life the last of October 1679 taken 5, 9th, 1679, by Jeremiah Swayn and Benjamin Fitch, totaled 158.01.00 Including housing, lands, orchard, meadow, swamp and divident, oxen, cows, steer, horse, bridles, saddle, pistols, cutlash and other acooutemts, guns, one pair Sandiliers, joiner's tools and household equipment very evidently the same coproperty enumerated in their father's estate (Middlesex Co.
