The following John Banks is not proven to be the John Bank from Lynn. I am currently researching this page! ~ Teresa March 2020


First Generation in the New World

1. JOHN¹ BANK, was born in Scotland and died at Chelmsford before 05 Jul 1683, date of Probate Record, Inventory. 1 He married at Malden about 1666, HANNAH JENKINS. Hannah married, second, JOSEPH PARKER and, third, ROBERT BLOOD.

Biographical Notes:
1. I’ve not found a birth, marriage or death record for John Bank in Lynn, Massachusetts which does imply that he may have moved on after 1653 at the Lynn Iron Works. Was he moved by the company or did he leave after his indenture for better opportunities?
2. The marriages of John and Hannah Jenkins and the daughters are all documented in Torrey’s “New England Marriages before 1700”. Birth records for their daughters can be found in Chelmsford town records.

Children of John and Hannah (Jenkins) Bank:

2. i. HANNAH/SUSANNAH BANK, (John¹), b. at Chelmsford, Massachusetts on 7 May 1666; married, JOSEPH BAKER.
2. ii. SARAH BANK, (John¹), b. at Chelmsford about 1668; m. JOHN GRAVES.
2. iii.MARY BANK, (John¹), b. at Chelmsford, on 7 Jan 1670; married WILLIAM POWER.

Second Generation

2. i. HANNAH/SUSANNAH BANK, (John¹), b. at Chelmsford, Massachusetts on 7 May 1666; married, JOSEPH BAKER.

2. ii. SARAH BANK, (John¹), b. at Chelmsford about 1668; m. JOHN GRAVES.

2. iii.MARY BANK, (John¹), b. at Chelmsford, on 7 Jan 1670; married WILLIAM POWER.


For more information about your ancestor it is HIGHLY recommended that you join the 500+ descendants of the Scottish Prisoners of War Society Facebook GROUP where you may be able to get some advice and possibly more information about your Scottish prisoner of war ancestor.


Sources and Notes:
Cindy Dietz wrote on 07 Apr 2018, “How about John Bank? I am an descendant of the John Bank who married Hannah Jenkins (who was from Malden) about 1666. They probably met in Malden but moved to Chelmsford where John died in 1683. Hannah subsequently married Joseph Parker then Robert Blood. John’s name was spelled various ways in the records, i.e., Bank, Bauke, Back, Balke, Bake etc. This could be a clue that he is the same man as the John Bank who is #3 on the Lynn Iron Works list. (His Highlands accent was so thick no one could figure out the spelling of his name.)
John and Hannah had three daughters born in Chelmsford:
1. Hannah or Susannah b 7 May 1666 m. Joseph Baker
2. Sarah b. abt 1668 m. John Graves
3. Mary b. 7 Jan 1670 m. William Power (my ancestors)
The marriages of John and Hannah Jenkins and the daughters are all documented in Torrey’s “New England Marriages before 1700”. Birth records for their daughters can be found in Chelmsford town records.
Could you please add me (Cindy Dietz ) as a researcher and possible descendant of John Bank?

Please also add me as a descendant/researcher of William Eager. I am descended through his son James who married Tabitha Howe. It’s interesting that William Eager and John Bank were both in Malden about the same time.” ~ Cindy Dietz

Alexander is believed to be a Scottish prisoner of war from the Battle of Dunbar at Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland on 3 Sep 1650, arriving at Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony on the ketch, Unity, in late December 1650.” ~ Teresa


First Generation in the New World

1. ALEXANDER¹ GRIMES, was born in Scotland and died after 1691 probably in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts.

Biographical Notes:
Name variations: Allester/Alister/Alexander
Allister Greimes is mentioned in a probate record for Allester Mackmallen [Alester M’Milan] of Salem. He is mentioned alongside Arsbell Anderson [Archibald Anderson]. Allester Mackmallen says he knew both of these men while he lived in Scotland and that they were friends and neighbors of his. He says Greimes and Anderson’s mothers are kin to each other.

Sources and Notes:

Hamilton, Marsha L.. Social and Economic Networks in Early Massachusetts: Atlantic Connections (University Park, Pennsylvania: The Pennsylvania State University, 2009), Kindle Edition

“I’m doing research in Essex county, Massachusetts and came across a SPOW in the book, Daughters of Eve: Pregnant Brides and Unwed Mothers in Seventeenth Century Essex County, Massachusetts by Else L. Hambleton (2004). It shows Alister Grimes/Greimes was alive in 1691 in Salem, Essex co., Massachusetts.
p. 20: “Sarah Lambert of Beverly was whipped in 1667 and again 12 years later in 1679 for bearing two illegitimate children by Allister Greime, a Scottish prisoner of war who worked at the Saugus Iron Works. Whether Greime was unable to marry because of his prisoner-of-war status or because he had a wife back in Scotland, their relationship was longstanding.”
p. 23: “Sarah Lambert can be traced through the Salem town records from 1657 onward. Over a period of 10 years during her childhood she lived in at least six households. She may have been mentally or physically handicapped because the town had to pay more money at each move. It should have been expected that the cost of her maintenance would be reduced as she grew older and was able to contribute her labor to the household in which she was placed. Henry Herrick had received 5li in 1657; Mr. William Brown got 10li in 1666. The following year she had her first illegitimate child who joined her on public support. A second illegitimate child was added to the rolls in 1679. She was still receiving public support in 1696. In 1691, Alister Greime, the father of both her children, was also forced to turn to public relief.”
pp. 51-52: “What happened to illegitimate children who were placed in the care of the town of their birth? Since they were assigned by an annual contract to whichever household agreed to maintain them for the least amount of money, they faced an unsettled future. The Salem town records indicate a difficult and insecure passage for Sarah Lambert’s child, who at no point in the record is accorded the dignity of a name, sex, or age. It was likely 6 years old in 1673. Francis Skerry had been keeping both Sarah Lambert and her child prior to that time, but in April 1673, the child was given to Thomas Greenslet’s wife. In August, the town of Salem agreed to give the Greenslets have an acre of land in return for keeping Sarah Lambert’s child until it was 18. The following March, however, Sarah Lambert’s child was taken from Thomas Greenslet’s wife and placed with Thomas Green’s wife. Two years later, in 1676, Mrs. Green took in another illegitimate child, one fathered by her own husband. The Greens also agreed to maintain Sarah Lambert’s child until it was 18 in return for up to 40 acres of land. At the same time, the Salem selectmen tried to find passage to Virginia for Sarah Lambert. They did not succeed because she had another illegitimate child in 1679. In March 1679, Sarah Lambert’s child was still with the Greens, but its position in the family was tenuous, because the Greens were asking for more money. In 1680 the Greens were given 50 shillings, ‘the better to enable him to keep [Sarah] Lambert’s child, he being poor & in want.’ Thomas Green’s financial position makes it likely that taking in bastards was a strategy for supplementing marginal family incomes. This could not have been a future eagerly sought by pregnant women for their children.”

I haven’t researched more on Sarah Lambert and Alister Grimes except to confirm on your website that he was a SPOW. You’re welcome to add the text above to his profile. Great website!”

“I had started my research on the Keltons with Dwight H Kelton’s genealogy published in 1895, “Kelton Family Items” (KFI), and an historical fiction authored by Jean Ardyce Kelton titled “The Saga of Thomas Kelton,” which has been useful in its own way. The author chose Parish of Kelton, Presbytery of Kirkcudbright, Synod of Galloway, Scotland as the possible birthplace for Thomas Kelton, and I have found that many family trees have taken that as fact, seemingly without any other source. Seeing that one of the goals of the group is to establish the lineage in Scotland, I am eager for ways I can begin that research, or participate in any ongoing activity.

To my knowledge, no birthdate for Thomas Kelton has been passed down. Nor has the lineage of his wife Susanna, including her birth, death, or even their marriage. Their first documented child, John, was born in Boston in 1661. Recorded births of four subsequent children are in Reading and Boston. A few children are added by KFI on speculation. And as far as I’ve discovered, there is not a birth or death record for the son Thomas, who married Jane Blake in 1685 and is the main descendant whose line is followed. In trying to confirm birth, marriage, and death dates (as found in town records), I’ve raised as many questions as are answered.

I am also trying to document as well as I can my own line back to Thomas. I can confidently trace back to Stephen Smith Kelton, said to be born in 1802, 1803, or 1805 in the Boston, Massachusetts, area. There doesn’t seem to be an official birth record for him. The only source I can find for his parentage and birthdate is a Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) application made by a great-grandson in 1942, which gives his parents as James Kelton Jr and Sally Merrifield, along with dates for their births and deaths and marriage. This James Kelton Jr is said to be an American Revolution patriot. However, no official vital records have been found to match any of the dates provided. Any connection to a patriot in the American Revolution does not seem to be proved by today’s standards.

Most Kelton family trees have Stephen Smith Kelton’s parents as James Kelton Jr and Sally Merrifield, then trace James Jr as son of a James Kelton who is the son of Solomon, the son of Jonathan, the son of Thomas, the son of Scots POW Thomas.

Meanwhile, I continue to search for all the official and contemporary to the time source information I can find. I’m wondering if there are other Kelton researchers in the group. Also looking for tips from others regarding new avenues of research for their SPOW ancestors. And I’m simply enjoying and learning from the ongoing discussions! ~ Pamela Dickinson Greenwood, SPOW Ancestor Thomas Kelton (abt 1630-1699)

IMPORTANT UPDATE! (Jul 2018)
According to, Christopher Gerrard, Pam Graves, Andrew Millard, Richard Annis, and Anwen Caffell, Lost Lives, New Voices: Unlocking the Stories of the Scottish Soldiers at the Battle of Dunbar 1650, (England: Oxbow Books, 2018), on page 248, James is categorized as:

Definite [that he is a Dunbar prisoner transported on the Unity]

Taylor/Tayler/Tailor, James. Residences: Lynn, Springfield MA. Appears: 1653. D.aft.1690. [Banks; DR; SPOWS; Ch.7 & 8]23145

For explanations of the category, abbreviations and references see List of Dunbar prisoners from Lost Lives, New Voices.

This James Taylor IS NOT the same as the SPOW John Taylor.


First Generation in the New World

1. JAMES¹ TAYLOR/TAILOR, was born in Scotland, possibly about 1630 and died on 27 Oct 1703. He married at Springfield, Massachusetts on 17 Jan 1667/8 (some records say 16666), MARY TAYLOR.7,8 Mary Taylor was born in 1649 and died on 18 Mar 1699/1700,9 the daughter of, Jonathan and Mary (_____) Taylor, of Springfield.

Biographical Notes:
James Taylor was one of the Scots on the 1653 Iron Works inventory, meaning he was definitely one of the men deported in November 1650 and sold as indentured servants and worked at the Saugus Iron Works in Lynn, Massachusetts. The list of names is not complete but for those whose names appear, it considered definite proof. (Follow the link above for the List of Dunbar prisoners further information.) As for how he came to relocate from Lynn to the next known location of Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, which lies inland about 100 miles away, I wish to refer to Lost Lives New Voices. In chapter 7 there is an explanation for how the Iron Works was mismanaged, “…first by Leader then by Gifford, inevitably impacted on the daily lives of the Scots… a few were moved on to other employers…” The book goes on to explain how another of the Scottish Prisoners of War was relocated to Springfield by stating that “… John Steward departed for Springfield on the Connecticut River to work as a blacksmith.” John Steward was originally just a servant to Gifford but then trained at Hammersmith as a blacksmith, a valuable skill which lead to his being “…brought to Springfield by John Pynchon and given the blacksmith’s shop there in 1658.10 Some similar circumstance could very well be what happened to James Taylor. He could have been relocated to the operation in Springfield by John Pynchon, due to his skill set, just like John Steward later was.
John Taylor was in Springfield as early as 1655, shown as “… one of men at Springfield who, on March 23rdd 1655/56 being a Trayning day… took the oath of fidelity.”11 James Taylor agreed to an indenture with John Pynchon from 3 Dec 1658 to 3 Dec 1659 and was provided with 1 pair of shoes and a pair of stockings, the shoes to be paid out once the time of servitude was complete. After 3 Dec 1659 he continued to work for Pynchon, earning pay for carting wood and cleaning stables. (SEE IMAGE ON PAGE 2) James Taylor is in the census of 1661 in Springfield. James Taylor is in the census of 1661 in Springfield.12The Pynchon Papers, dated approximately 1665, show that James Taylor purchased a horse for 3 pounds13 and he had a debt of 5s on 16 Jan 1666 for a frying pan.14 He married 17 Jan 1666 to Mary Taylor and the marriage was performed by John Pyncheon. “I wonder if the frying pan was a present for his wife since the date of debt was the day before his marriage date.” ~ RB James Tailer signed a Petition Against Imposts on 02 Dec 1668 along with his father-in-law, Jonathan Taylor.15

Further about this exciting connection.
I got to James Taylor working backward from his descendancy. I am his 7th great-grandson, or so I think. My line (which is on WikiTree as you may already have seen) is:

1.Dr. Halsey Bullen, my father, m. Sarah Hyatt in Scarsdale, New York
2. Benjamin W. Bullen, m. Margaret “Dade” Slater, in Black Brook, New York
3. Jeduthan Bullen, b. in Black Brook, New York, m. Amanda Church Avery in Wilmington, New York
4. Elizabeth Emmons, b. in Bloomfield, Vermont, m. Samuel Bullen, b. in Keene, New Hampshire, removed to Vermont then to Jay, New York;
5. Elihu Emmons m. Martha Adams, perhaps in Woodstock, Vermont (weakest link in the line)
6. Benjamin Emmons, b. Brookfield, Massachusetts, m. Elizabeth Smith in Hinsdale, New Hampshire, removed to Vermont and then St. Charles, Missouri
7. Mary Petty, m Robert Emmons in Springfield
8. Mary Taylor, m. John Petty in Springfield
9. James Taylor, m. Mary Taylor in Springfield

From James Taylor forward, we have (I think) all of his children based on Springfield vital records, and some of the descendants of his son Ebenezer and his daughter Mary. But nothing yet connected beyond that.

I and other WikiTreers would love to add more, based on your Society’s knowledge, and we would of course give full citation credit to the Society for every fact cited. We could also add links to the Society’s site if you desire that.

With regards,
Halsey Bullen
