  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: The family of STICKNEY, STICKNEE, is said to have been of Saxon origin, although the writer of "The Stickney Family", Matthew A. Stickney, expresses the opinion that it is of Norman descent, its ancestor having come to England in the wake of William the Conqueror. A John de STICKNEY was living, in 1331, in possession of the Manor of Stickney and a coat-of-arms. There is a village of the name about eight and a half miles north of Boston, England, in the shire of Lincoln. The parish register of Saint Mary's Church, at Frampton, Lincolnshire, have many records of births, marriages, and burials of Stickneys, from 1558 to 1609, but the name does not appear on those records after that date. It is believed the family removed to Hull, England, or its vicinity, where the family residence was at Ridgemont, a beautiful place about nine miles east of the city.

      I. William STICKNEY was born at Frampton, a parish in the Wapentake of Kirton, Lincoln, three miles south of Boston, England, his baptism on the 6 September 1592 taking place in the fine old stone church there dedicated to Saint Mary. He was the son of William and Margaret STICKNEY, and grandson of Robert STICKNEY buried there 18 October 1582.[1]

      He married Elizabeth, who came to America with him in 1637, and they became the ancestors of all who bear the name in this country. On 6 November 1638, "William STICKNEY a husbandman & Elizabeth his wife" were admitted to membership in the First Church of Boston, Massachusetts, of which the Reverend John Wilson was at that time the minister. The word "husbandman" as used in that period indicated the ownership of lands, thus different from a "farmer", who rented the land of others.

      On 24 September 1639, William and Elizabeth STICKNEY, with others "by ye Church's Silence were dismissed to ye gathering of a Church at Rowley, if the Lord so please."[2] Here they were among the original settlers, and built a house upon the lot given them that year, on the corner of what was later Bradford and Wethersfield Streets.

      Evidence of the good birth and education of William STICKNEY, is the fact that he brought with him from England a quarto copy of King James' translation of the Bible, a first edition, printed in 1611. The interesting volume has descended from father to son in the same line as the old homestead, Deacon Nathaniel STICKNEY, of Dracut, Massachusetts, owning it, still in a good state of preservation, at the time of the writing of "The Stickney Family" (1689). It was used on the occasion of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the settlement of Rowley, and has doubtless at later similar functions been given a place of honor and interest.

      William STICKNEY was admitted freeman 7 October 1640. He was on an important committee in 1652 to draw up a "Covenant and Agreement" between his town and the first settlers of the "Merrimack Lands," now Bradford. In 1653 he was "clerk of the market," and on the "jury of trials." In 1656 he was a selectman, then a position carrying with it civic responsibilities, and in 1661, was a lieutenant of militia.

      William STICKNEY died 21 January and was buried on 25 January 1665.

      His will, dated the day of his death, was proved in the court at Ipswich, 28 March 1665, and is still preserved, the original document, folded and filed, in the Probate Office at Salem, Massachusetts. His wife Elizabeth, survived him several years. Her signature to a deposition, on 24 September 1678, "aged about 70," gives a clue as to her birth year. Her son, Samuel signs at the same time, "aged about 45." She died in 1680, at the age of seventy-two.[3] On the 200th anniversary of the death of William Stickney a granite obelisk, erected on his grave, was dedicated to his memory and that of his faithful wife. "William Stickney, born in Frampton, England, A.D. 1592, was with his wife, Elizabeth, of Boston in N.E. in 1638; of Rowley, in 1639, where he died A.D. 1665. Erected by his descendants Josiah Stickney of Boston, Matthew Adams Stickney of Salem, Joseph Henry Stickney of Baltimore, Md., 1865."

      John STICKNEY

      II. John STICKNEY, born at Rowley, Massachusetts, 14 January 1640, received a lot there, 20 May 1667. On 16 January 1673, he was appointed overseer for the west end of the town. On 29 November 1675, he was one of twelve men chosen from Rowley to serve under Captain Samuel Brocklebank {another progenitor of ours} in the King Philip's War. He participated in the bloody engagement of 19 December 1675, and assisted in the capture of Fort Narragansett. The next spring he was one of that brave band at Sudbury whose fight with the Indians on 21 April 1676 ended in the death of Captain Brocklebank and many others.[4]

      On 10 December 1678, he took the oath of allegiance before Major General Dennison, as was juror at the March sessions of Court 1679, 1680, and 1681. In 1680 the village of Buxton was granted to him as "Lefftenant John Stickney." On 9 June 1680, he was married at Rowley, to Hannah daughter of Captain Samuel BROCKLEBANK, under whom he had served, and who had perished at Sudbury four years before. She was born 28 March 1659, and died 23 April 1749, "aged 90 years," says the church record, forty of those years being spent as a widow.

      In 1688 and 1689 Lieutenant John Stickney was selectman in Rowley, and in 1694 was elected constable of the town. In 1697 he was on the grand jury at the April sessions of the Court. A record of the tax list of Rowley for 1691 bears his name as a tax payer, and also as one of the five selectman signing the returns. Hannah, wife of John, was admitted to the church in Rowley, 23 June 1695. Lieutenant Stickney's will, dated 26 February 1709, left the homestead to his wife Hannah. He died that year, exact date not on record.
