    • Re: Eddy Family Bulletin #8 From: EFA President Thomas Eddy Date: 17 Feb 2002 Time: 20:53:14 Remote Name: Comments Here are pages 118-122 of EFA Bulletin #8 dated April 1, 1925. You can purchase a hard cover copy of our early bulletins by visiting our website at Annual Bulletin 1-20 557 pages many photos, index, covers the historical formative years 1920-1930. $30.00 CONCERNING AME DOGET "I did marrie Ame Doget the Daughter of old John Doget of Groton." These were the words written by John Eddy, the Pilgrim, to Gov. John Winthrop, about the year 1650. Previous to the year 1923 the identity of Ame Doget was unknown. The discovery of the letter referred to gave a clue for research over-seas with the hope that interesting data con-cerning John Eddy and his wife, Ame Doget, might be discovered. It has been assumed that John Eddy and Gov. Winthrop must have been acquainted, if not related, before they came to New England. From the two letters* discovered recently it is apparent that there was a feeling of retribution between these two early settlers, probably for the reason that John and Samuel Eddy held to the Pilgrim spirit, whereas the Governor held to the views of the Puritans. We are now prepared to publish historical data which will show that these two early settlers must have known each other in Groton, England, and that Ame Doget's cousin, Thomas Doggett, married Margery Clompton, while her sister, Thomasine Clompton, married John Winthrop, as his second wife. Bulletins No. 3, p. 32; No. 4, p. 48. [ 118 ] With the historical data given in these pages of the Doggett family is included a copy of the "Pedigree of Doggett of Groton," giving five genera-tions of this family, in which is found the Doggett ancestors of all the Eddy descendants in America of John and Amy (Doggett) Eddy. That the picture may be more interesting and complete we have included notes concerning the Winthrop family. Doggett of Groton, co. Suffolk, England. Armorial Bearings From Suffolk Manorial Families. Vol. i. The Arms allowed at the Visitation of London in 1664 to "John Doget, mchant," descended from Grotten in Suff: were Gules, two greyhounds salaient combatant, Or, collared Argent. The crest was an unicorn's head, Ermine, maned Or, horned Argent. Harl. MS. 1086. The shield is a slight variant of that of Doggett of Honingham and Shernbourn in Norfolk, in which the greyhounds are collared Sable. But the crest of the latter family is altogether distinct - a lion's head erased, Or, gorged with a mural coronet, Sable. Karl. MS. 1552. I. Richard Doggett, a wealthy inhabitant of Groton, co.

[The marriage record of John Eddy and Amie Dogget has not been discovered up to this time (1925). They were probably married at the home of one of Amie Dogget's brothers or sisters in or near Groton, Suffolk co., England.] Groton, County Suffolk, England Groton, County Suffolk, England, is the ancestral home of our first Governor of Massachusetts, John Winthrop. On the south side of the church in the old town is a tomb placed there as a memorial to Adam Winthrop, the first of the name, who was Lord of the Manor of Groton. Here are buried Governor Winthrop's father, grandfather and possibly great-grandfather. The Winthrop coat of arms is on one end of the tomb and the Latin inscription on the side now partially obliterated translated into English reads as follows: - [121] Heaven the country Christ the way. Here lies the body of Adam Winthrop, Esq., son of Adam Winthrop, Esq., who vvere Patrons of this Church and Lords of the Manor of Groton. The above named Adam, the son, married the daughter of Henry Browne of Edwardston by whom he had one son and four daughters. He departed this life in the year of our Lord 1623, and of his age 75. But Anna his wife, died 1628. She is also buried here with him. On the east end of the church is a large colored glass window placed there in memory of Governor John Winthrop and presented to the church by some of the Winthrop family in America. . . . There is a double window on the south side of the church just above the tomb which was placed there as a memorial to John Winthrop's first and second wives, Mary Forth and Thomasine Clopton. The house in which the Governor of Massachusetts and his son, the Governor of Connecticut, lived is not standing today, but the location is well known. The place was sold soon after John Winthrop, Jr., left there to lead the great Puritan emigration in 1630 to New England. The town of Groton, Massachusetts, is directly indebted for its name to Deane Winthrop, son of Gov. Winthrop, who was born in the parish of Groton, County Suffolk, England, in 1622. He died at Winthrop, Mass., a town also named for him. He was a brother of the Governor of Connecticut, Fitz-John Winthrop. Gov. John Winthrop was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge. Groton, Suff: England, is an ancient town owing to its geographical position played an important part in the early English history. In the days of Norman rule this part of the country was studded with castles and fortresses, the greater part of which were in the vicinity of Groton, which in Dombesday Book is called Grotena. To reach Groton from London, one would pass through the county of Essex, to the town of Sudbury, in the county of Suffolk, which is a town bordering on that of county Essex. A drive to Boxford, which is but a mile walk into the parish of Groton. This English home of the Doggett family lies midway between Hadley and Sudbury in the county of Suffolk. It was formerly the lord-ship of the Abbot of Bury and was granted in 1544, soon after the dis-solution of the Monasteries, to Adam Winthrop, Esq., and this grant may be seen in the Patent Rolls of the Public Record office of London. 344 SUFFOLK MANORIAL FAMILIES.
