Additional Information:

WE RELATE. org “Purthe Macvarlo”
Purthe MacFarlin (Purde Macvarlo) was the first member of the Clan MacFarlane to set foot on American soil, arriving around 1660 and settling in the town of Hingham, Plymouth County, MA. His name has been spelled numerous ways, all depending on how the town clerk recorded what he or she heard. There were no rules of spelling or pronunciation. Seven years after arriving in Hingham, he married Patience Russell, a Hingham resident. There is mention in the book History of the Town of Hingham of his purchasing a parcel of land from the town of Hingham in 1669. It was located off East Street near Hull Street. The “History” noted, “…near the vicinity of the Weir River on East Street, then a little traveled lane, lived Purthee McFarlin, the Scotchman, who found himself blessed with nine bonny lassies and three sturdy laddies.” All were born in Hingham and lived their lives there. On Feb. 15, 1715, Purthe’s farmhouse was burned by the Indians. At the time his son, James was living on the farm with his parents, and subsequently built a new house on the same site. Records found in the Old Ship Church show that Purthe gave some 30 Pounds Sterling towards the building fund. Purthe and most of his family are buried in the old cemetery behind the church. However, many of the old markers and graves have been moved or destroyed by age. A monument dedicated to the early founders of Hingham has been placed on the hill in the cemetery.

Genealogies (Somersworth, N.H.: New England History Press, 1982; orig. pub. Hingham, Mass., 1893), 3:47-49.
“1. JOHN, a Scotchman, was an early resident of Hing. The chris. name of his w., whom he m. Nov. 7, 1662, was Rebecca. John removed with his fam. ab. 1666, to Scit., where he was a freeholder. In 1673, he was one of those who received a portion of the common land. In his will of 20 May, 1697, proved 27 June, 1712, names w. Rebecca, four sons and one dau. His son, Elias, married Purde MacVarlo’s [Purdie MacFarland??] daughter, Hannah.

FIRST GENERATION IN THE NEW WORLD

1. JOHN¹ MAGOON, “a Scotchman1, was born in Scotland about 1625 and died at Pembroke, Plymouth County, Massachusetts in 1708/9, about age 83 years. SEE: John Magoon Arrival Date 18 Sep 2020 PDF by Dr. Andrew Millard. John’s will is dated 20 May 1697 and his probate is dated 27 Jun 1712 which also names his wife as, REBECCA (_____).2 John’s will is dated 20 May 1697 and his probate is dated 27 Jun 1712 which also names his wife as, REBECCA (_____).3 He married at Hingham, Plymouth County, Massachusetts on 07 Nov 1662, REBECCA (_____). “MAGOON, John (-1709) & Rebecca [HOBART] (1637-); 7 Nov 1662; Hingham/Scituate/Pembroke {Hingham 3:48; Smith-Bryant 38; Bridgewater 375; Reg. 19:221, 89:178; Magoun Supp. 1; Tingley-Meyers 218}” The brackets around her surname show that there is still uncertainty as to her parentage.

Boston, Mass.: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2015. https://www.americanancestors.org/DB1568/i/21175/988/426895362)) John “Married in Rev. Peter HOBART ministry” NOTE: Only the name “John Magoon” is listed in the marriage record under the Rev. Hobart Ministry record which seems odd if she was indeed the niece of Peter Hobart. ((Hingham, MA: Vital Records, 1637-1845. https://www.americanancestors.org/DB2709/i/43969/181/1212636585))

REBECCA (_____), wife of John Magoon from 1662 to 1697:
1. Rebecca (_____) married at Hingham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts on 07 Nov 1662.
2. She is suggested as possibly being a Rebecca HOBART in Torrey’s New England Marriages to 1700.
3. Her name is not listed in the marriage record under the ministry of Rev. Peter Hobart.
4. In his will of 20 May 1697, proved 27 June 1712, names w. Rebecca.
5. Baptized at Hingham in December 1637.
6. Died in 1709?

Biographical Notes:
1. There is speculation that John may be related to other SPOWs Henry Magoon and/or William McGowan, but this is not proven. The records show that Henry Magoon and family went to New Hampshire while John Magoon’s family went from Hingham to Scituate to Pembroke and then some lines went to Connecticut, and then back to Massachusetts.
2. John bought a tract of upland in Scituate on 20 Mar 1672.4
3. His will of 20 May 1697 was prorated 27 June 1712.5
4. “He lived in “the Two mile.” He had also a considerable tract of land on the west side of North river, near Hugh’s cross, and Cornet’s pond. His children, John born 1668, Elias 1673, Isaac 1675. This family have descendants in Marshfield and Pembroke.”6 The Two Mile Farm.
5. “JOHN, a Scotchman, was an early resident of Hing. The chris. name of his w., whom he m. Nov. 7, 1662, was Rebecca. John removed with his fam. ab. 1666, to Scit., where he was a freeholder. In 1673, he was one of those who received a portion of the common land. In his will of 20 May, 1697, proved 27 June, 1712, names w. Rebecca, four sons and one dau. His son, Elias, married Purde MacVarlo’s daughter, Hannah.” [Purdie MacFarland is a possible SPOW]7

Biographical Notes:
1. “The first settler was Isaac Magoon, a Scotchman, who gave to his adopted home the name of his native country. He was admitted an inhabitant of Windham in 1698…” SEE: “Scotland” in Windham County, Connecticut, taken from Palmer (then a District) and annexed to the Parish.
2. In 1700 Isaac Magoon purchased 1,950 acres (7.9 km2) of land from then Windham and thus began Scotland’s History. He named the town Scotland as a way of commemorating his ancestral home. Scotland was incorporated in May 1857.[2]
3. The General Court Records, under date of May 29, 1761, recite: ” Petition of Isaac and Alexander Magoon, sons and heirs to the whole of the estate of Isaac Magoon, late of Ware River Parish, in the County of Hampshire, deceased, setting forth that they own about 400 acres of land in the northerly part of Palmer, which lies five miles from Palmer Meeting-house, through a bad road, and but two miles from Ware River Meeting-house, and the road naturally good, praying that they may be annexed to Ware River Parish, etc. Notice was ordered to be issued and served on the District of Palmer. “Nov. 18, 1761. Ordered, that the estate described in the aforementioned Petition be annexed to the Parish of Ware River, and the inhabitants or possessors of said estate to do duty and receive privilege there.”

Biographical Notes:
“What I found was that John, the brother of Henry, had a son named Isaac born in Scituate MA in 1675. Isaac(1) had a son he also named Isaac(2) born in Windham CT in 1706. This Isaac(2) then also had a son he named Isaac(3) born in Palmer MA in 1734. So apparently there were three Isaac’s before William. Isaac(3), William’s father, apparently married a girl named Lucretia, which would then mean your 4th Great Grandmother was named after her grandmother.” Allan Magoon

“Descendant of Gospatrick, the first Earl of Dunbar and Northumberland” Robert Dunbar at Rootsweb.

David Dunbar says, “We know of all of Robert’s children born in the Colonies and that it would have been improbable for him to return to England and serve in parliament. It does give some hints of information for further research. There are literally hundreds of descendants of Robert and dozens who are somewhat active in trying to find his parents. In Scotland you see spellings of Dunbar are varied including Dunbarr and Dumbarr. The history texts often use them interchangeably within the same paragraph. I am pretty certain that Robert is the one on the list of prisoners captured at the battle of Dunbar listed as Lt. Col. Dumbarr with no first name. The general consensus is that he was literate before the battle. Notice that Clan Genealogist in North America, Ann Theopold Chaplin, is mentioned. She authored the book “The Descendants of Robert Dunbar of Hingham Massachusetts” 1992 She also did research in Scotland. Her book completes 10 generations and has 2 pages of the 11th generation, mine.” “His wife, Rose, has an unknown history. We do not know if she came from Scotland with money to buy out Robert’s indenture ship or if she was the daughter of the owner of the Lynn iron works. Regardless, within a couple of years of arriving on the Unity Robert paid taxes higher than all but 2 others in his township. We don’t know who Robert’s parents are nor Rose’s parents. His son Peter b 8 September 1668 is in my line.” ~ Posted with permission of David Dunbar.
