Gilman Ancestors of America


Recently I covered the paternity suit filed in the Essex County Court against Joseph Mayo of Newbury Massachusetts by Sarah Short daughter of Henry Short and Sarah Glover.

A daughter Sarah Mayo of married Maverick Gilman. see Part 1 Genealogy Exploration: The Gilman Family Line and Gilman Line Part 2

I started to trace the line and discovered a living direct descendant Barbara who has published on her ancestors. She also shared some relics still in the possession of family. Barbara’s family papers confirmed the lineage and Genealogybank I begin this series on the early Gilman line.

The first Gilman to come to New England was Edward in 1638 on the ship Diligent with his wife {Mary Clarke}, three sons, two daughters, and two servants. He settled in Hingham, Massachusetts. Edward’s children:

Mary m. John Folsom on board the Diligent; Sarah m. John Leavitt; Lydia m. Daniel Cushing, {ancestor of the Honorable William Cushing U.S. Supreme Court Judge}; John {one of the first councilors under Prov. Chart. 1680, a judge, and speaker of the house} m. Elizabeth Trueworthy; Moses m. Elizabeth Hersey; and Edward JR. married Elizabeth Smith, d. of Richard Smith of Ipswich, MA.

Edward JR. moved from Ipswich MA to Exeter NH where he was granted the rights to erect and operate a sawmill.

In 1652 Edward sold to his father his Ipswich property left to him by his father-in-law Richard Smith. His son Edward III married Abigail Maverick and their son Maverick married Sarah Short.
