Herendeen, Benjamin

The surname Herendeen is identical with Herenden, Harandine, Harnden, Harrenden, Harraden, Haraden and Harrington, and there are various other variations in spelling. A Richard Harnden settled in Reading, Massachusetts. He was born in 1640. Edward Harnden settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts, about 1650, and afterward removed to Gloucester; was over fifty years old in 1677. There was a Benjamin Harndale or Harnden in Lynn in 1649.

Benjamin Herendeen or Hearnden, the immigrant ancestor of all the early Rhode Island families of this surname, was born probably in England and settled at Providence, Rhode Island. He married Elizabeth White. who died about 1701, daughter of William and Elizabeth White. After Herendeen's death in 1687, she married (second) in 1688, Richard Pray. Herendeen bought of William and Elizabeth White, of Boston, for twenty pounds, a house and lot of twenty-five acres in Providence, October 16, 1662, and in the same year he sold rights to certain lands to Zachariah Rhodes. He drew lot 86. February 1q, 1665, and in 1684 he had sixty acres laid out to him. He and his wife deeded land to their son Benjamin. April 20, 1685; and to their son Joseph sixty-seven acres, March 3, 1686. His will was presented April 4, 1688, but it has been lost. The widow, then wife of Richard Pray, deeded to son Isaac the homestead given her for life by her late husband, October 20, 1688. But on December 13, 1701, the dwelling house formerly her father's, she deeded again, Isaac having conveyed it to her again.

Benjamin Herndell/Hearnden/Harrington

-------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------
This file contains extracts and notes on Benjamin Herndell/Hearnden/Harrington who was married to Elizabeth White, daughter of William White. Benjamin is considered one of the candidates for father of Richard Harnden, first known settler in North Wilmington.

William White of Boston, Massachusetts (father-in-law)

The information for this chapter comes solely from Dorothy (Bennett) Inderkum of Sacramento, California. Her principle sources were a typescript at the New England Historic Genealogical Society, "The William White Line" by Winifred (Lovering) Holman and various records of Suffolk County, Masschusetts. This William White should not be confused with the one of Mayflower fame. However, it interesting to note that anyone descended from Samuel and Sarah (Harrington) Bennett, including the compiler, is descended from William White in two ways through both the Bennett and Harrington families. See those chapters for more information.

William(1) White was born about 1600 and died in Boston, possibly on 30 October 1673 and certainly before the end of that year. (Suffolk Probate Records) William married Elizabeth; she probably died in Boston on 23 December 1690 (Hartford Times, 5 November 1949).

William was a bricklayer by trade and worked at the Iron Works in Lynn, Massachusetts at one point. His work took him to other locations in New England as well. In February 1655 he was at Warwick, Rhode Island. He was granted a house lot adjoining his son-in-law "Benjamine Herndell" [Benjamin Harrington] on 17 October 1656. That same year, he had supervised the bricklaying at Winthrop's stronghold on Fisher's Island and had been in Providence, Rhode Island. On 27 February 1657, William was granted a share for his "meddow" near another s on-in-law, Thomas Walling. He was settled in Boston again by 16 October 1662. He bought a house on town land from Nathaniel Woodward, for which he had to pay rent to the town. (Suffolk Deeds, 7:110) This land was later granted to William on 14 March 1669/70. (Boston Record Commissioners, 7th Report, p. 53, 1881)

Apparently the relationships within the family were not always smooth. On 17 February 1659, Benjamin Hearnden [Benjamin Harrington] became involved with the law in regard to his "breach of peace and fright, Comitted [sic] on the family of William white, of this Towne." In a separate incident, William's daughter, Margaret, already married to Robert Colwell, ran away with her married neighbor , Thomas Walling; both deserted their families. Colwell secured his divorce 2 July 1667; Margaret had returned to Boston and was ordered to be publicly whipped 15 stripes and was fined ?? in October 1666. Colwell went to Long Island, Wal ling also obtained a divorce and he married Margaret in 1669. After his death in 1674, her third husband, Daniel Abbott, took her to court. Apparently they reconciled, she was named in his will.

William White made his will 13 October 1673. His wife was to have

"all my vissable estate so long as she was a wi dowe and to have her thirds if she remarried; two Sonnes Isaacke & Cornelius White; two sonnes & 1 daughter Susanna Waggett, wife of Thomas Waggett after the decease of wife; to son William White 5 shillings... to other 3 daughters, Elysabeth Harnden, wife of Benjamyne... Margaret Wallen, wife of Thomas Wallen, and Usrulla Bennett, the wife of John Bennett each 4 shillings."

The will was proved 31 January 1673/4. From the probate records, William may have died on 30 October 1673.

On 28 Dec 1676, William's widow

Notes for Elizabeth White:
On October 20, 1688, "Elizabeth, now wife of Richard Pray, deeded to her son, Isaac Hearnden, the homestead, houses, orchard, etc. which were given her, for life, by the will of her late husband, dated February 1, 1686[/87], of which she was named executrix. (EPR, 5:34-37) It was suggested in an unidentified manuscript at The New England Historic Genealogical Society, that Isaac may have been the youngest child and perhaps this deed was a gift from Elizabeth to get Isaac started in married life. Isaac must have deeded this land back to his mother, because on December 13, 1701 she sold to Joseph Whipple of Providence her "dwelling house and all land thereunto lieing and adjoyneing (part belonged to husband Benjamin Hearnden and to my father William White)..." which was to revert to son Isaac Hearnden upon Elizabeth's decease, but which she had purchased by a deed from Isaac. (EPR, 4:219). This is supported by the Holman manuscript which indicates that on February 10, 1689, "Isaac Hearnden of Providence for a valuable consideration... also for the duty of Naturall love & affection I beare unto my deare Mother Elizabeth Prey... (home stall & house)..."; On June 9, 1701 Elizabeth had made it very clear who owned what: "Whereas there is a fame gone abroad that there is Some person or persons intending to purchase the house & land to it adjoyneing which lieth in ye Towne of Providence... which formerly belonged unto Benjamin Hearnden Senr
of said Providence (deceased) and to purchase it of Isaac Hearnden hath no Right... to ye said house, nor inn or to any of the said lands, neither by Reversion nor any other wayes; But all the Right... to the said house & lands wholy belongeth unto me Elizabeth Prey (widow), formerly Elizabeth Hearnden; as may appeare by a deede under the said Isaac Hearnden his hand & seal, and I the said Elizabeth Prey, Doe therefore by these presents forbid all & Every person or persons whome so ever; for Bargaineing or purchaseing the said house and lands, or any part hereof, of the said Isaac Hearnden."
