August 6, 1983


From: Old Time New England. The Bulletin of the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities taken from Hamilton House, South Berwick Maine by Burton W.F. Trafton, Jr.

In April of 1830, Alphius and Betsev (GOODWIN) GOODWIN purchased of FOLSOM and his wife, Sarah, the mansion house together with the crumbling "stores, barn, woodhouse and other outhouses belonging thereto, and also a wharf continuous to said mansion."
Young Mr. GOODWIN sought the estate first of all for the high fertile fields, and second for its fourteen great rooms to shelter the large family he was about to beget. He tore down the neglected warehouse and stores and let in the sun. He pastured the largest flock of sheep of all the surrounding farms on the green grazing along the Maine bank of the river to Cow Cove. The formal garden became his apple orchard, but he moved old-fashioned perennials and Scotch roses up near the kitchen door where Betsey could step out to tend them when the cares of the household were at their ebb. Alpheus GOODWIN had a fine appreciation of the old house; and it was communicated to the one of his grand daughters who was born there and grew up to maturity in the rooms with their mahogany window seats and deep arches beside the chimneys and who took away images which graced her life ever afterwards. For well over half a century, when people in all degrees of financial capacity bowed to bad taste in building and remodeling, the GOODWINS maintained their mansion without making a single structural change. However, houses and families, like rivers, have their tides. Once more the tide was ebbing for Hamilton House, though not with the dramatic drop as though somehow a dam had torn loose as at the passing of Hamilton. It was the steady current of life which had slowly taken away the younger generation of GOODWINS. They were too many to draw their living from even so rich a farm, and too late to man a Piscataqua sloop, or Berwick brig, or hardly a Quamphegan gundalow.
The homestead was pleasant enough when the broad doors at each end of the hall could stand open and rich salt summer air drifted through. Many people came down to Pipe Stave Point, for Hamilton House was always a show place. Sarah Orne JEWETT, born in South Berwick in 1849, and later one of the most perceptive creators of short stories that America has produced, made frequent notes in her youthful diary of Journeys there, taking with her whatever out-of-town company she might have at the time. In 1881 she wrote for the Atlantic Monthly that Hamilton House seemed to her unrivaled for the beauty of its situation, and for a certain grand air which she had found hard to match in any house she had ever seen, "a quiet place that the destroying left hand of progress had failed to touch."

But the occupants were old end some were ill and life was constricted in the long Maine winters. Few visitors come down a dead-end lane in a season of snows. Most of the rooms were closed and there was only the memory of children who warmed themselves with play and laughter and finally soap-stones at their feet. The old and the ill kept close to the fire and climbed the back stairs at night.

Miss JEWETT, learning that the farm was up for sale, busied herself among wealthy Boston acquaintances to find someone who would like the mansion as a summer residence. After at least one disappointment, she interested Emily D. TYSON, widow of George TYSON who had been president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and their daughter. During the summer of 1898, for somewhere in excess of $7,000, they bought Hamilton House and its 110 acres and Mrs. TYSON wrote to Miss Jewett that suddenly all of her roads led to South Berwick.

Mrs. TYSON and her daughter, Elise, became two of South Berwick?s most beloved residents. River society flourished as it hadn't since Revolutionary days, and the JEWETTS were among the first to appreciate it. The JEWETT coachman, John TUCKER, was fitted with a tall silk hat to match one worn by the Tyson's man, John LONG ? though for a considerable time the former was granted the privilege of keeping his on the seat beside him until he was beyond the eyes of his village neighbors.

At the house itself, the first structural changes in its history were made. A stairway leading from the east door was removed, extending the length of the dining room; and two small latticed wings were built at the sides. A door was let into the north parlor to give the house four entrances instead of three.
Mrs. TYSON brought a beautiful collection of furnishings that had come down in her family, and added to it over the years. So perfect was her taste, the blended whole seemed always to have been here.

If Colonel HAMILTON'S gardens were on the west, which tradition firmly relates, no attempt was made to restore them. Rather, the aging fruit trees planted by Alpheus GOODWIN were replaced by flowering crabs. To the east, a small but charmingly conceived semiformal pleasance was laid out on two levels. Thomas Nelson PAGE called it "one of the most beautiful gardens in America". Henry JAMES remarked with his usual ambiguity that he had seen nothing like it in this country.

Submitted by Peter M. CROWELL, Halifax, N.S.

One of the most common sources used for information on the early GOODWIN family of Argyle, N.S. has been the GOODWIN Family Genealogy compiled by F.E. CR0WELL in his series of genealogies New Englanders in Nova Scotia published in the Yarmouth Herald newspapers of the 1930?s (F.E. CROWELL'S genealogies of this series are now also available on microfilm from the New England Historic & Genealogical Society.)

However - where the early GOODWIN family is concerned F.E. CROWELL has made a number of errors which have only recently come to my attention through my research of old wills at P.A.N.S. (Public Archives of Nova Scotia). Firstly - from other research, it appears that F.E. CROWELL copied his information on the early Argyle GOODWIN family directly from The Goodwins of Kittery Maine by John Samuel GOODWIN, published 1898. The information contained in F.E. CROWELL'S genealogy is the same as that found in this book- with no new dates added.
In F.E. CROWELL'S genealogy and on p.58 of the GOODWINS of Kittery, Maine one finds a list of the children of John GOODWIN (William, Daniel) and his wife Patience WILLOUGHBY.

Three of the sons of this couple were:
Of these three sons both sources list only Henry and Nathan GOODWIN as being the GOODWIN men who came to Argyle, N.S. around the year 1771. This appears to be correct. Nathan GOODWIN?s son Robert GOODWIN was bapt. in Berwick, Maine on 27 May 1770 and after that no other entries for the family are found in Maine.

However - it is now clear that their brother Noah GOODWIN also settled in Argyle, N.S. and that indeed he came there before either of his brothers and was the first settler of that name in Argyle, N.S.. Noah GOODWIN must have come to Argyle in the fall of 1761, along with the other earliest settlers as a GOODIN is listed as being there with a family of 6 June of 1762. When the first land grants were formalized in the Argyle area in June and July of 1771 Noah GOODWIN'S name is included.
What is even more surprising is that Noah GOODWIN was indeed the father of the three sons credited to Henry GOODWIN and Eliza WEYMOUTH by both F.E. CROWELL and J.S. GOODWIN.

Noah GOODWIN made out his will and signed it on 20 Sept. 1790 in the Argyle area. He died sometime between then and Apr. 19, 1794 when the will was proved.
In his will he mentions his three sons Palatiah GOODWIN, Nicholas GOODWIN, and Jedediah GOODWIN. He also mentions his "Beloved wife" though not by name. And he also refers to his two daughters "Olive HIPSON" and "Kezia MORTON".
Henry GOODWIN'S will (1794), on the other hand, mentions only his son-in-law Daniel ROBERTS, his daughter Anna ROBERTS and his wife Elizabeth. I suspect that Anna (GOODWIN) ROBERTS might have been their only child - and was certainly most likely the only living child of Henry and Elizabeth (WEYMOUTH) GOODWIN in 1794, as his entire estate was left to her and her husband.

One also comes to question the other information found in F.E. CROWELL and J.S. GOODWIN on the above sons of Noah GOODWIN.

They both say that:
Jackson RICKER's History of Glenwood and the Argyles maintains that Jedediah GOODWIN's 1st wife was one Lydia RICKER and that his 2nd wife was one Lydia FROST.

This seems to be a possibility. It is difficult to determine at this point just who was the "Lydia GOODWIN" who departed this life 21 June 1790" (Argyle Township Book records Book 1 p. 29) was. Since Jedediah GOODWIN had daughter Lydia b. 3 Dec. 1779 and his last child by his 2nd marriage was b. 8 Oct. 1795, it is possible that this "Lydia GOODWIN" might have been his 1st wife rather than his daughter (see also GOODWIN NEWS, Vol V. Issue. 2 Apr. 1983 - John Larkin BAKER.

Some other sources give Palatiah GOODWIN'S wife as a Sarah SEELEY rather than Sallie MORTON.

Most people have also assumed that Jackson RICKER's History of Glenwood and the Argyles was accurate in its information that most of the early settlers in Argyle came from Kittery, Maine. Although most of the Argyle families who came to Argyle in the fall of 1761 may well have used the town of Kittery as their point of departure for Nova Scotia, most appear to have lived in the Somersworth, N.H. area.

This seems to be the case with Noah GOODWIN as well, as he was involved in a land transaction in this area on 19 Oct. 1761, probably just before he left for Argyle, N.S..



Fannie M. HILTON,
of Ogunquit Road, Wells, 62, died July 22 at Maine Medical Center, Portland. She was the widow of Earl E. HILTON. Born in Berwick, she was a daughter of Oscar J and Fannie Vera Ricker MULLOY.
Mrs. Hilton was a member of the South Berwick and Wells Christian Church. She was clerk of the Willing Workers, and a member of the North Parsonfield Historical Society; she wrote and published the genealogy of the MULLOY Family.
Surviving are her father of North Berwick; two foster sons, Peter TOWNE of Wells and Steven REINHOLDTSEN of North Berwick; a brother, William MULLOY of North Berwick; two sisters, Claire BURGOYNE of Berwick and Pearl RANDALL of North Berwick; and six grandchildren.
A funeral was held July 24 at Johnson Funeral Home, North Berwick. The Rev. Chauncey STUART officiated. Burial was in Evergreen Cemetery, Berwick.

Previously, Mrs. HILTON also advised: Go to the Registry of Deeds. Folks don't realize what a source of information those old records in Alfred are.
An old custom she discovered was that when ready cash was needed - which was not often because people engaged in barter, - fathers and sons often went to sea to replenish the family coffers.
