The study of a family’s genealogy presents a fascinating experience. It is not only interesting to find the vital information concerning the dates of births, marriages, and deaths, but, also how some of our ancestors participated in the social, economic, religious and political events during their lives.
Although time-consuming, it has not been unduly difficult to trace our family tree in Somerset, England, in America and in Canada. Our ancestors were pioneers in the Massachusetts Bay Colony where five generations (Nicholas Jr. – Jacob) lived. At the turn of the twentieth century, organizations in Massachusetts collected the vital records of the pioneers. The information gained from church, civil, and family records was published in books of vital records (births, marriages, deaths ) for practically every community. These vital records available in most public libraries in Massachusetts.
It is fortunate (i.e. for genealogy studies) that David and his youngest sons emigrated to Lower Canada (Québec). The churches there were required to send to the county courthouse, at the end of each year, a book of their vital records.
Incidentally, the gravestones in cemeteries are a source of valuable information. The writer must have visited at least 65 cemeteries. The inscriptions on the stones in the older cemeteries impressed upon me that our ancestors had a good sense of humour as well as great faith.
Dr. Frank S. Patch, Benjamin Charles Patch Jr. and Gertrude Patch had found authentic information concerning Nicholas’ Jr. father and grandfather in Somerset. Also, my daughter Linda, visited Somerset, and was able to get some information from church records (in Latin) concerning Nicholas Senior and Nicholas Junior’s baptism and his marriage to Elizabeth Owslye. The information Linda found is identified by a (v) in the chart. She discovered that it is probably not possible to gain information dating before the sixteenth century unless the ancestor was very high in the hierarchy of royalty, church, or state.
It should be emphasized that the information presented in this genealogical study was derived by direct and indirect access to official records and from information believed to be authentic, gained from studies by other individuals. Circumstantial evidence has been utilized to a very limited extent to determine the association of the earliest generations.
Why did our branch of the Patch family emigrate to America? There are some interesting legends that suggest why they left Somerset. There is no evidence to suggest that they were anything but hard-working, respectable, religious and courageous people. However, some of them tended to be rebellious. They left Somerset in the 1630’s during the reign of Charles I. On reading the history of the religious, political, and social aspects of Charles I reign, it is not difficult to understand why they would be motivated to emigrate. Charles I alienated a great majority of his people by his religious policies and his support for William Laud, Archbishop of Canterbury. Laud was stimulating the religious passions (intolerance) of the 1570’s and 1580’s. In the ‘70’s and ‘80’s the intolerance led to the development of underground churches and to “subversive” religious activities.
In the 1630’s those who found the religious views of Charles I and Archbishop Laud intolerable had an option not available to previous generations. They could, and did, emigrate in large numbers to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Nicholas Jr. and family left in 1636. If they had waited thirteen years they may have remained in Somerset. In 1649 Charles I was beheaded on the orders of Oliver Cromwell.
One hundred and forty years later the Patch family became involved in the American Revolution. At least 60 members of the Patch family, including my great, great, great grandfather Jacob, fought against the British in the Revolutionary War.
It should be noted that my mother, Minnie Brown Hurlbut Patch (1891 – 1957) was a descendant of Empire Loyalists.
The descendants of Nicholas Jr. and Elizabeth spread out all over the United States, and to a limited extent, Canada. In the agrarian society, the farm was usually bequeathed to the oldest son. The other sons had to move away to find and to clear land, and to establish their own farms. It was not until the early years of the twentieth century, that there was a significant movement to other vocations in the towns and urban centres.
This genealogical study is incomplete. More information should be found. There are blank spaces to be filled, and further authentication should proceed. Please send me any information that you may obtain that may improve this publication.
