Descendants of Reverend William Wetherell

Generation No. 3

1. Samuel II3 Wetherell (Samuel2, William1) was born October 10, 1678 in Scituate, Plymouth, and died Aft. 1720 in Pembroke, Massachussetts. He married Eunice Rogers May 26, 1698 in Marshfield, Massachussetts, daughter of Timothy Rogers and Eunice Stetson. She was born Bef. October 2, 1677 in Marshfield, Massachusetts.

Notes for Samuel II Wetherell:

b. recorded Scituate VR page 406 (s. of Samuell [Samuel CR2])

"Records of Second Church of Scituate" NEHGR 57:182, Baptisms, Samuell the sonn of Samuell Witherell, Nov 24, 1678

He resided in Hanover and Pembroke, MA. Samuel received, on May 11, 1705, some land in Scituate from his brother Joshua that had been given to Joshua by his Grandfather, Reverend William Wetherell. On Oct 6, 1755, Samuel's wife (E)unice and two of their children (Samuel III, and Theophilus) signed a petition to the selectmen of Pembroke asking to have Samuel Wetherell "rendered non-compos-mentis, and by no means capable of transacting his privet business." The petition was granted Oct 30, 1755, and Samuel Perry (Parry) of Pembroke (his son-in-law) was appointed guardian of Samuel's estate.

(Plymouth County Court, March 1689/90, Lt. Anthony Callimer & Abraham Sutliff (both of Scituate) were appointed guardians to ".. the orphan children of Mr. Samuel Witherel, late of Scituate;" (Issabelle remarried in 1684, then died in 1689 and evidently her third husband did not want the responsibility of the Wetherell children or the Court felt that he was mishandling their inheritance.)

A Samuel Wetherell & Eunice his wife were finded 40s each for "Carnal Coppulation with each other before marriage." I believe this belongs here... Plymouth County Court, Sep 1698.

MD 39:128 September 1698 "Samuel Wetherell & Eunice his wife, "carnall coppulation with each other before marriage." (1:226)

Childs records page 9, list Samuel & his children with different marriages for Joseph & Theopolis...
