Richard Ingersol lived in Salem; married Ann (or Agnes) Langley Oct. 20, 1616, in Sands, England; died late in 1644; she married, secondly, John Knight of Newbury; she died July 30, 1677; children: George, Sarah, Joanna, John, Alice, Bathsheba, Nathaniel. [ref 27:1-131]

"Richard Inkerstall" was baptized at Edworth, a tiny parish which lies on the Hertfordshire border of Bedfordshire, near Biggleswade, on March 10, 1687, son of George. He married Agnes Langlye at Sandy, co. Bedford on October 10, 1611. He died in Salem, Massachusetts. His widow married secondly John Knight of Newbury, Massachusetts, and survived him when he died in 1670. Presumably he was of yeoman status. Agnes returned to her parent's home at Sandy in 1612 to have her first child, as was the custom, and her sencond child was baptized in her husband's native parish of Edworth, but thereafter the Ingersoll children were baptized at Sutton, co Bedford, not far from the other two parishes, and we may judge Sutton to have been the family's home. In 1629 Ingersol decided to emigrate to New England, and in a letter written for the Massachusetts Bay Company by Matthew Craddock in London, addressed to Capt. John Endicott, Esq., Governor, at Naumkeag, soon to become Salem, dated May 28, 1629, and added to on June 3, 1629, Craddock names as emigrants "one Richard Haward and Richard Indersall, both Bedfordshire men, hyred for the Company, with their famylies, who wee pray you may be well accomodated, not doubting but they will well & orderly demean themselves." There seems to be no definite statement that the Ingersolls sailed on any one of the several ships which left England for America that year, the family genealogist laying that they came with Rev. John Higginson, landing on June 29, and another authority assigning them to the Mayflower of Yarmouth which arrived in Naumkeag on May 15. Of the fifteen years of Ingersoll's life in Salem there are scant records, and those mostly deal with land grants. He doubtless obtained an earlier one, but the first of record is a town grant of 2 acres in 1635. In 1646 he had another of unstated area and also 80 acres "on Cape Ann side." He and Pasco Foote in 1637 were to have "such pportions as is nominated for them: by the frost fish brook next to Goodman Barneys." Desiring to have some meadow in 1639 he was granted 10 acres in the great meadow on November 20, and 20 acres on December 11. In an undated list, possibly of 1637, in the handwriting of Roger Conant, it is stated that Ingersoll,'s family consisted of 9 persons and he was granted one acre. On January 16, 1636/7, Ingersoll was named to maintain a ferry across the North river during the town's pleasure, charging one penny for every passenger. About 1639 or 1640 Ingersoll rented from Mr. Henry Chickering the Townsend Bishop farm at Salem Village and worked it in partnership with his sons George and John. This farm, later occupied by Francis Nurse, was the center of bitter controversy. The town passed an order on July 7, 1644, that two men be appointed to walk forth every Lord's day in the time of God's worship to take notice of such as either lie about the meetinghouse without attending to tthe word or ordinances, or that lie at home or in the fields without giving good account thereof and to present them to the magistrates. Robert Molton, Jr., and Richard Ingersoll were the sixth such pair appointed. Richard Ingersoll of Salem made on July 24, 1644, a will which was proved in court on January 2, 1644/5. To his wife Ann he left all his estate in land, goods and chattels, except for the following specific legacies. To his son George Ingersoll, six acres lying in the great meadow. To his youngest son Nathaniel Ingersoll, a parcel of ground with a little frame thereon, which he had bought of John Pease, but, if Nathaniel should die without issue of his body, the landshall be shared by the testaor's son John Ingersoll and his sons-in-law Richard Pettingell and William Haines. To his youngest daughter Bathsheba, two cows. To his daughter Alice Walcott, his house "at Town" with ten acres of upland and meadow after his wife's death. Witness: Townsend Bishop. "I read this will to Richard Ingersoll & he acknowledged it to be his wil. Jo. Endicott." Inasmuch as Nathaniel died die without issue of his body, the land which his father left him went to the descendants of John Ingersoll, Richard Pettingill and William Haines, resulting in a series of very valuable heirship deeds. This land, a large tract, had been originally granted to Francis Weston in 1636. The inventory of the Ingersoll estate, dated October 4, 1644, was in the sum of 214: 19: 0. His 80-acre farm and 20 acres of meadow were worth 14: 13:2, and another farm of 75 acres (the Weston grant in Salem Village) was entered at 7. "26 acres, 2 houses, 2 acres a quarter of salt marsh," 26: 7: 6. His "moose skin sute" was valued at 2 against a "cloth sute and coat" at 1. Children*: Alice, John, George, John, Sarah, Bathsheba, Nathaniel.

RICHARD INGERSOLL with his wife (who was Ann Langley, married at Sands, England October 20, 1616*) and family came to New England in the immigration of 1629. A long letter of information and instructions dated at London May 28, 1629 and finished at Gravesend the 3rd of June 1629, was sent from the Governor and Deputy of the New England Company for a Plantation in Massachusetts Bay to the Governor (John Endecott) and Council for London's Plantation in the Massachusetts Bay in New England. One item referred to Richard Haward and Richard Inkersall, both Bedfordshire men, trusting they would be well accommodated and not doubting they would well and orderly demean themselves. In Salem Richard Ingersoll lived for the next fifteen years, dying late in 1644. His will was dated the 21st of July that year and probated January 2, 1644/5. In it he named his wife Ann, sons George, John and Nathaniel, sons-in-law Richard Pettingell and William Haines, daughters Bathsheba and Alice Wolcott. One item of the will read: "I give to Nathaniel Ingersoll, my youngest son, a parcell of ground ... but if the said Nathaniel dy without issue** of his body lawfully begotten then the land aforesaid to be equally divided between John Ingersoll my son and Richard Pettingell and William Haines my sons-in-law." Nathaniel, born in Salem about 1632, and only a boy at the time of his father's death, lived to be over eighty and perhaps unknowingly erred in bequeathing this parcell of ground to the church. No child or grandchild survived him. It was nearly ninety years after the date of Richard Ingersoll's will that the title to the land was cleared and the names of a number of his great-grandchildren appear in Essex County land records. Richard's widow married John Knight of Newbury and her daughter Bathsheba married his son, John Knight, Junior. Ann (Ingersoll) Knight died July 30, 1677. [ref 78:92]

RICHARD INGERSOLL
ORIGIN: Sutton, Bedfordshire, England
MIGRATION: 1629
FIRST RESIDENCE: Salem
OCCUPATION: Ferryman. ("Ric(har)d Inkersoll" was allowed one penny for every person he ferried over the north river, 16 January 1636/7 (STR 1:31).)
EDUCATION: Signed his will with a mark. The will also has the annotation, made by John Endicott, that "I read this will to Richard Ingersoll & he acknowledged it to be his will."
OFFICES: On 7 July 1644, ordered to "walk forth in the time of God's worship, to take notice of such as either lie about the meeting house without attending to the word or ordinances, or that lie at home or in the fields..." (apparently on the sixth Sunday following, paired with Robert Moulton, Jr.) (STR 1:131).
ESTATE: In 1636 received eighty acres in Salem, but not in the freeman's land (STR 1:20). Granted one acre of marsh in Salem on 25 December 1637, with a household of nine (STR 1:103).
He received two acres for a houselot 6 April 1635 and was reminded to allow room for a highway on his land (STR 1:9). With Edward Giles and Pasco Foot, Ingersoll was considered for land by the "frost fish brook" next to Goodman Barney, 10 April 1637 (STR 1:44). On 20 November 1639 Richard Ingersoll received ten acres of meadow in the great meadow at Salem, having already received twenty acres on 23 December 1638 (STR 1:92, 94).
In his will, dated 21 July 1644 and proved 2 January 1644/5, Richard Ingersoll of Salem gave all to "Ann my wife," except to "George Ingersoll my son six acres lying in the great meadow," to "Nathaniel Ingersoll my youngest son a parcel of ground with a little frame thereon" (unless Nathaniel dies without issue, in which case the land should be divided equally among "John Ingersoll my son and Richard Pettingell and William Haines my sons-in-law"), to "Bathsheba my youngest daughter two cows", and to "my daughter Alice Walcott my house at town with 10 acres of upland & meadow after my wife's decease"; witnessed by Townsend Bishop (NEHGR 9:157) (What appears to be a different version of this will refers to both Bathsheba and Alice as youngest daughter, which is clearly impossible (EPR 1:43; EQC 1:76). Without examining the originals of these documents we cannot tell whether the error was made by the seventeenth-century or the nineteenth-century copyist.)
The inventory, taken 4 October 1644 by Townsend Bishop and Jeffrey Massey, totalled 213 19s., of which 47 10s. 10d. was real estate: a farm, 80 acres, meadow, 20 acres, 14 3s. 4d.; another farm, 75 acres, 7; and 26 acres, 2 houses, 2 acres (and) a quarter of salt marsh, 26 7s. 6d. (EPR 1:458; EQC 1:76).
On 10 April 1668 Anne Knight deeded eighty acres at Royalside, bequeathed to her by her late husband "Richard Ingerson," to their sons "John and Nathaniel Ingerson" with the consent of her now husband John Knight Sr. of Newbury (EQC 4:109).
BIRTH: Baptized 10 March 1587 at Sandy, Bedfordshire, son of George "Inkerstall" (Abel Lunt Anc 63).
DEATH: Salem between 24 July 1644 (date of will) and 4 October 1644 (date of inventory).
MARRIAGE: Sandy, Bedfordshire, 10 October 1611 Agnes Langlye (Abel Lunt Anc 63). Anne Ingersoll is included in the list of those admitted to Salem church before the end of 1636, with the annotation "removed" (SChR 6). She married (2) by 1652 John Knight of Newbury and was living at the time he made his will, 5 May 1670, in which he bequeathed to "my wife's grandchild Thomas Hains, 10 to be paid after his time is out" (EPR 2:191).
CHILDREN (baptisms for i-vi from Abel Lunt Anc 65-67): Alice, John, George, John, Joan, Sarah, Bathshebe, Nathaniel
COMMENTS: 28 May 1629 letter of instruction from Massachusetts Bay Company to John Endicott: "There is also one Richard Haward and Richard Inkersall, both Bedfordshire men, hired for the Company with their families, who we pray you may be well accommodated, not doubting but they will well and orderly demean themselves" (MBCR 1:401; SLR 1:xvi).
In the 1636 Salem land grant, Richard Ingersoll appears in that portion of the list which included "non-freemen," which in Salem tells us clearly that he was not a member of the church. In the 1637 Salem land grant, Richard Ingersoll is shown with a family of nine. Seven of his children were living at that date, but his eldest daughter Alice was already married to William Walcott and would have been included in her husband's household. Thus, there may have been an additional child otherwise unrecorded, but this child in turn must have died before 1644; alternatively there may have been a more distant relative or a servant living with the Ingersolls that year.
Ingersoll had the usual problems with fences and encroachment on land, but the land grant next to Jacob Barney was a problem. Ingersoll sued Jacob Barney at the September Term, 1639, probably regarding land (EQC 1:13). Barney sued him back over feeding cattle in his marsh, September Term, 1640, and won a verdict of "(t)wo loads of hay at water side as convenient as his own was" (EQC 1:21). Joshua Verrin sued Ingersoll at the same term over maintenance of a fence and was countersued immediately (EQC 1:22, 29).
For some of the larger and more expensive farm implements noted in Ingersoll's inventory, it is stated that he owned one third of each item. This would indicate that he shared ownership with one or two other husbandmen in the neighborhood, or, as seems more likely, with two of his sons. In depositions at the June 1678 Essex Quarterly Court, the brothers George, John and Nathaniel "Ingerson" gave evidence regarding events in the 1640s. George deposed that "living apartner with his father Richard Ingerson upon the farm that the said Rich(ar)d Ingerson hired of Mr. Chickering which the said Chickering had bought of Mr. Townsend Bishop," demonstrating that the Ingersolls were in a cooperative family enterprise and placing them on Mr. Chickering's farm.
Richard Ingersoll found the Salem miller lacking and in September 1640 took grandjuryman Lawrence Leech with him to the mill to prove that the grists were "much short of weight" (EQC 1:20). His neighbors found his cattle and the cattle of a dozen other men offensive in the common cornfields and Ingersoll paid the court's fine (EQC 1:49, 56)

Several years after the widow, Ann, married John Knight, Sr. of Newbury litigation arose over the farm her husband had willed her and in the trial her son in law gave the following testimony: "I Richard Pettingell, aged about 45 years doe testify that this farm of land that is now in contriversy was reserved by the widow Inkersoll to her self before her marriage to John Knight, Sr. and she verbally gave this land to John Inkersoll, her son. I, Richard Pettingell doe farder testify that about the year 52 the said John Knight came home too Newbury and tould his wife that hee had promised Mr. Pain sum timber at frost fish river; she was then troubled at it and said what have you to doe to sell my timber wher upon the said John Knight promised her twenty shillings, and the said John Knight, Sr. did then own that he had no right in that land" (Essex Court Files XIV 28-32). John Knight then joined with his wife in conveying the farm to her sons John and Nathaniel "Ingerson."
