Edward was the first Starbuck to settle in what is now the U.S. He came from Leicestershire, England in 1635 (fifteen years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock). He, his wife, and possibly one or two of his children (birthdates undetermined) settled in the area now known as Dover, New Hampshire. There is apparently no information available on the family's first four years there, but from 1640 on, Edward's name appears in several official documents. The first is a petition by New Hampshire residents to the governor of MA begging him not to take over control of their colony, but MA did so anyway in 1641 and kept jurisdiction until 1680. In 1641, Edward sued Hansard Knollys for slander but the details and outcome have been lost or never recorded. Twice he was elected deputy (representative) to the MA General Court (legislature)--1643 and 1646 (he was fined for being absent for 3 weeks during the first session). Edward and 2 others were appointed "wearesmen" or official river fishermen for Dover for life and were required to supply the town and its church from their catches. In 1647 he was given permission to erect a sawmill and went into the lumber business with Richard Waldron. For the "great misdemeanor of professing Anabaptism" Edward was heavily fined. There was no separation of church and state then, and the Puritans who ran the colony were intolerant of people like the Anabaptists who refused to baptize children and insisted on the baptism of adults instead. In 1653, Edward sold half his timber and water rights to his son-in-law, Peter Coffin. Edward served on a six-man committee to settle a boundary dispute between Dover and Kittery (now part of ME) in 1654. He was evidently quite argumentative about his religious beliefs for the Congregational minister swore out a peace bond against him in 1658. Edward's last official duty in Dover was serving on a coroner's jury that investigated the accidental death of a man on Nov. 11, 1659. Soon after that, Edward at the age of 55 went on an exploring trip and met Thomas Macy, James Coffin, and Isaac Coleman. Together they set off in an open boat for Nantucket (Indian for "far-away-land"), an island which lies 18 miles south of Cape Cod, Ma and takes several hours to reach by motor-powered ferry today. Their remarkable journey has been immortalized by John Greenleaf Whittier in his narrative poem, "The Exiles," (which mentions Macy but not Starbuck). They spent the winter there, and in the spring Edward went back to Dover to fetch his and ten other families. His two married daughters, Abigail (Starbuck) Coffin and Sarah (Starbuck) Austin remained in N.H. at least for the time being. Thus began the two-and-a-half centuries-long residence of Starbucks on the island that became after Edward's demise a leading whaling base until kerosene lamps replaced whale-oil lamps in the 1850's. Edward built a house at the head of Hummock Pond. A deed of land to him from the Indians is the oldest original Nantucket document in existence. In 1669, he and Peter Coffin were appointed by the town meeting "to manage the government among the Indians". Four years later Edward was chosen one of the town's five selectmen (overseers). He died April 12, 1690 (as recorded in Vol. V of Vital Records of Nantucket Massachusetts to the Year 1850.) [source: "Starbucks All" by James Carlton Starbuck]

Nantucket was purchased for 30 and two beaver hats.

Anabaptist : also called Rebaptizer, member of radical, or left-wing, movement of the 16th-century Protestant Reformation. Its most distinctive tenet was adult Baptism. In the first generation of the movement, converts submitted to a second Baptism, which was a crime punishable by death under the legal codes of the time. They denied the merit of infant baptism.

The Anabaptists were basically religious people who tried to stick to Bible principles. In the late 15th and early 16th centuries, criticism of the Roman Catholic Church and the clergy grew. Corruption and immorality permeated the church; hence, many felt that vast changes were needed. But the reformers had no uniform strategy as to what ought to be done or how far the changes ought to go. Many recognized the need for adhering to the Bible in matters of worship. Yet, the reformers could not even agree on a common interpretation of Bible teachings. Some felt that the Reformatin was progressing too slowly. And it was among these reformers that the Anabaptist movement formed its roots. Anabaptist communities were mostly small, and members generally behaved peaceably. The adherents made no secret of their beliefs; in fact, they preached to others. Among other things, they refused to bear arms, kept separate from the world, and excommunicated wrongdoers. But what charactized their faith more than anything else, clearly distinguishing Anabaptists from other religions, was the conviction that baptism was for adults and not for children. Adult baptism was not simply a question of religious dogma; it was an issue of power. If baptism was delayed until adulthood - thus allowing a person to make a decision based on faith - some might not get baptized at all. And individuals not baptized would, at least to a degree, remain outside the control of the church. In some areas, those who performed adult baptism or who were baptized as adults were liable to receive the death penalty. [source: The Watchtower, 15 Jun 2004, page 11]
