Notes for Capt. John* LIBBY

JAMES, HENRY, DAVID, MATTHEW, DANIEL, and SAMUEL, Scarborough 1676, s. of JOHN, who, as well as John jr. prob. first b. of the fam. was there 1663, and there the name has cont. The f. d. 1683; in his will of 9 Feb. of that yr. admir. for its brevity, naming only "two younger s. Matthew and Daniel." He came, it is said, from Broadstairs, in the Isle of Thanet, Co. Kent. [ref 20]

John, b. 1637; 'being 80 yrs. of age' 15 Mar. 1717-8, 83 24 Mar. 1719-20. Soldier in Philip's War. In Scarb. he was selectm. 1669, 1673, 1674, 1676, 1684, 1688. In Portsm., miller, he and his sons ran (and appar. built) the grist mill on the Vaughan privilege. Thinking that the Libby lands passed to him as eldest son under England. law, he deeded them to his eldest son, and deeded his own Scarb. lands to his son Daniel; so his other ch. are unnam. But the 1736 division of his father's lands among all the heirs shows that his bros. James and Samuel lift no desc., and all his other bros., except Daniel at Marblehead, left wills naming their ch.; so it seems cert. that all others about Portsm. of proper age were his ch., with poss. one or m. of the Libby girls who were likelier his gr. daus. He and w. Agnes depos. together in 1718, he that Winnock liv. in Scarb. over 60, she only 50, yrs. ago. Their ch. incl: John, Joseph, Samuel, James, Daniel, Benjamin, Jeremiah, Daughters, unkn., may have incl. Elizabeth. [ref 22]

JOHN LIBBY, born probably in England, in the year 1636; married AGNES ___. He was reared in Scarborough. In August 1668, which was probably soon after his marriage, he bought fifty acres of land adjoining his father's plantation. This was no doubt his residence while he lived at Black Point, although he afterward received several grants from the town. He took quite an active part in the public matters of the town, and served as selectman in the years 1670, 1674, 1683, and 1687. The settlement at Black Point was still in rather poor condition, when the Indians, instigated by the French, again began to disturb the quiet of the settlers all along the coast of Maine, and became more and more aggressive until May 1690, when Fort Loyal, on Casco Neck, a few miles north of Black Point, was attacked by a large body of Indians with their French allies. After a siege of five days, the fort was surrendered, and the inhabitants of Scarborough, without waiting to be attacked themselves, immediately deserted their homes and fled to safer localities. John Libby with his whole family fled to Portsmouth, N. H. His youngest son, Jeremiah, was then ten months old. In Portsmouth, where he lived until his death, he followed the calling of miller, and during the earlier years of his residence there, was frequently chosen to fill the minor town offices. He lived to very old age; how old, is not known, but as late as 1719-20 he made a deposition about early Scarborough matters. He probably died soon after. His wife was living in March 1717, but probably died before her husband. No list of John Libby's children appears. He disposed of his property before his death, deeding his real estate to his sons John and Daniel. That the others were his sons, there is no positive proof; but there are many circumstances which might be said to prove it to all practical purposes, and there is nothing which would tend in the least degree to disprove it. All but Benjamin first appeared in Portsmouth, and among the descendants. Children, all born in Scarborough: John, Joseph, Samuel, James, Daniel, Benjamin, Jeremiah. [ref 25:26]

John, b. about 1637; m. by 1669 Agnes ___; living in 1719/20 when his age was given in a deposition as "about 88." [ref 46:2-466]

28 Nov 1681 estate included 50 acres of land, 12 acres of marsh, 1 cow, 2 mares, 1 sheep

She was probably not a Scarborough woman. In a joint deposition of herself and husband, taken 15 Mar. 1717, her husband testitd that one Joseph Winnock had lived at Black Point between sixty and seventy years before, but she limited her testimony to fifty years. It would seem that her recollection of Wi??ock reached back only to the time of her marriage. [ref 25:26]
