ANCESTRY

John Guild, born about 1616 in England died 4 October 1682 in Dedham. John married Elizabeth Crooke on 24 January 1645 in Dedham. Elizabeth, born in Roxbury died 31 August 1669 in Dedham.

 

Johnís son Samuel, born 7 November 1647 in Dedham died 1 January 1730 in Dedham. Samuel married Mary Woodcock, daughter of John Woodcock and Sarah Curtis on 29 November 1676 in Dedham. Mary, born 9 March 1650/51 in Roxbury died after 1697 in Medfield.

 

Samuelís son Nathaniel born 12 January 1678 in Dedham died 28 January 1774 in Dedham. Nathaniel married Mehitable Farrington or Hartshorne. Mehitable born about 1684 died 10 February 1771 in Dedham.

 

Nathanielís son Nathaniel born 20 March 1712 in Dedham died 9 December 1796 in Walpole. Nathaniel married Mary Boyden, daughter of Thomas Boyden and Deborah Wight on 12 June 1733 in Dedham. Mary was born 9 February 1708 in Wrentham and died 20 March 1776 in Walpole. Nathaniel also married Anna ___________ 27 April 1777 in Walpole. Anna was born about 1722 and died 28 November 1797 in Sharon. This Nathaniel Guild probably was the individual who gave the land for and was the first person to be buried in the Guild Burial Ground.

 

FACTS

In correspondence dated 28 October 1996, William P. McCann of Birmingham, Alabama, an 11th generation grandson of the immigrant John Guild and his wife Elizabeth Crooke, provided The Walpole Historical Society with certain data gathered as a result of his visit to the Guild Burial Ground. These included a 1917 photo of the cemetery, a schematic diagram of the cemetery, actual epitaph verbiage as well as descriptions and locations of headstones and the Guild Tomb. These items are available for viewing at the Walpole Historical Society.

 

LISTING

Although not documented as such, the following listing is based on a ďwalk throughĒ or inventory that was most likely completed by a member or members of the historical society and Mr. McCann. Because not all dates were captured during the inventory, we have attempted to verify missing dates through vital records and other sources. These are so noted.
