KINGSBURY Several immigrants by the name of Kingsbury or Kingsbery came early to New England. Of these, Henry, John and Joseph Kingsbury were probably brothers. Henry Kingsbury came in the ship "Talbot" in 1630, and joined the church at Boston with his wife Margaret. Henry, of Ipswich, born 1615, and called "kinsman" in the will of John of Dedham, was probably son of Henry, the immigrant. John Kingsbury, of Watertown, was admitted a freeman March 3, 1635-36. He removed to Dedham in 1636, where he served as deputy to the general court and as a town officer; his will, proved December 2, 1659-60, mentioned his wife Margaret, brother Joseph, kinsman Thomas Cooper, of Seaconque, and Henry Kingsbury, of Ipswich. The name is of ancient English origin, derived from the place of that name, Kingsborough. Joseph Kingsbury, the immigrant ancestor of this branch of the family, settled at Dedham, Massachusetts, as early as 1637. His wife Millicent, "who appeared to ye church a tender-hearted soule, full of feares & temptations, but truly breathing after Christ," was admitted to the Dedham church April 24, 1639; he was admitted April 9, 1641. He was made freeman June 2, 1641. He died before June 1, 1676, his wife surviving him. His will, dated May 22, 1675, proved June 1, 1676, bequeathed to sons Joseph, John, Eliezer and Nathaniel; wife Millicent; daughter Sarah Croseman, son-in-law Thomas Cooper, of Rehoboth; grandchild Elizabeth Brewer; sons-in-law Robert Croseman and Nathaniel Brewer; refers to deceased brother John Kingsbury. Children: Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, John, Eleazer, Nathaniel. [ref 29:1819]

Joseph Kingsbury was one of the three Kingsbury brothers who sailed to America on the ship known as the Talbot which was part of a fleet of four ships under the command of Gov. John Winthrop. They set sail March 27, 1630 from Southampton, England and arrived in Salem, Massachusetts about July of 1630. Gov. Winthrop was not satisfied with Salem and the fleet moved down the coast eventually settling in Shawmut (now Boston).

About 1635 they sent an exploring party up the Charles River and they established a settlement at Watertown. John and Joseph Kingsbury were part of this party. The community florished and they quickly organized in what was refered to as a 'Contentment' recording all important events. The Kingsbury brothers were apparently of strong pioneer stock and considered Watertown too crowded. A small band of like minded individuals again used the Charles River which turned South just beyond Watertown and settled in what is now Dedham. They petitioned the General Court on September 5, 1636 for a large tract of land to form their community. The petition was granted on September 10, 1636 and the name Dedham was assigned by the Court. (NOTE: Current county boundries have Dedham and Needham in Norfolk County, but prior to 1800 Norfolk County did not exist and all of this area was included in Suffolk County)

Apparently, on August 18, 1636 before the group left Watertown, they met at the home of John Dwight and drew up a covenant for their political organization. John Kingsbury signed the covenant that day, but Joseph did not sign until 1637, after he arrived in Dedham.

1637 one of 10 men considered most suitable to be an original member of Dedham

1 Nov 1637 deeded part of his Dedham land, purpose: town meeting hall; 1638 deeded one acre, purpose: church site (Joseph was given another acre in trade, but it was rocky swamp, apparently causing a long feud with the Church fathers. He was noted as having a bad temperament and not allowed into the church fellowship.)

Jun 1676 buried, Norfolk Cemetery, Norfolk MA
