    I would respectively ask you double check your genealogy of John Pope d 1686 Dorchester, MA m Margaret.. He fathered a child, Thomas, in 1642 with his first wife Alice, … therefor it would be hard to believe he would have been born in 1635 and the son of John Pope d 1646 and Jane Clapp d 1661… He is not mentioned in the will of John Pope or Jane (Clapp) Pope… I am a descendent through Col Frederick and Mary Cole Pope’s son Elijah m2nd Susannah Capen…
    Thanks for your time… Shari

    • Eaton Family Tree Says:

      I do not have Thomas Pope listed on my genealogy, but according to the prolific genealogist author, Charles Henry Pope. Thomas was the son of John, Sr. (who had been married to Jane Clapp) and his second wife Alice. Therefore your Thomas was the half-brother, not the son of, John who was married to Margaret.

      Here is an excerpt: “John Pope, grantee of land in 1634, ’47 and ’56 ; one of the first signers of Church in 1636. There appear to be matters relating to his name which are not reconcilable, unless there were two of the name and generation. The first wife of his, we know of, is Jane. They had a son John, born June 30,1635 ; Nathan, born and died in 1641. Thomas, son of John and Alice, born December 27, 1643. There was a Jane Pope, of Dorchester, who died the latter part of 1662, or early in 1663, who left a daughter Patience, the wife of Edward Blake. There was a Margaret, wife of John Pope, died October 20,1672, aged about 74 years, buried in Dorchester burying ground. John Pope, sen., died October 19, 1686 ; left a widow Margaret, who administered on his estate. There was a John Pope who was a roguish fellow, and was arraigned before the General Court, which resulted as follows, 30 (2) 1640: “John Pope, for his unchast attempt upon a girle, and dalliance w* maydes, and rebellios, or stubborn carriage against his master, was censured to bee severely whiped.” This could not have been our John ; his respectability and character forbid it; so do the character and habits of his numerous descendants. He was a shoemaker by trade, and was more likely to be hard at work on his bench, than dallying ” with maydes.”

      More source material is forthcoming, so maybe some dates will be made more accurate. In the meantime the actual order of descendants appears to be held up by this excerpt in the Granite Monthly, vol 9 (until this question came up, I knew nothing of Albert Pope and the bicycle. I’m descended from his aunt, Hannah Pope, daughter of Fredrick Pope, Jr.)

      “In the minds of Americans the name of Colonel Albert A. Pope is inseparably connected with the introduction and manufacture in this country of bicycles and tricycles. Outside of a large circle of personal friends, however, his career, already crowned with brilliant success, his manly attributes and his splendid character are unknown. He won his rank on the field of battle ; he is one of the heroes of the Union army ; facts entitling him to honor and recognition aside from his remarkable business prosperity. Energy, sagacity, executive ability and tenacity are among his personal characteristics, contributing to his good fortune. Good sense, and not good luck, has been the cause of his victory in the strife for fame and riches.

      Albert A. Pope was born in Boston May 2o, 1843. He sprang from good stock. His father, Charles Pope, of Boston, still vigorous at the age of seventy-two years, has been an active and stirring business man. His grandfather, Frederick Pope, Jr., of Dorchester, was one of the most enterprising merchants ancW builders of that town at the opening of this century, and had the sagacity

      to open a branch of his lumber business in eastern Maine. His great grandfather, Colonel Frederick Pope, was a prominent citizen of Stoughton, representative to the General Court, and a gallant officer in the Revolutionary army. The father of this first American Colonel Pope of whom record appears was the greatly beloved Dr. Ralph Pope, one of Stoughton’s pioneers, son of Ralph Pope, husbandman, a well to do citizen of old Dorchester, whose father, John Pope, first appears in the records of • that oldest plantation of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1633. The John Pope, Senior, who is mentioned in the records from 1634 onward, and named as a selectman in 1637, and who was one of the signers of the covenant with Rev. Richard Mather in 1636, is presumed to have been the emigrant ancestor of the Pope family of Dorchester. The mothers of the line have been well connected, bringing in the qualities of worthy families, Neale, Stubbs, Cole, Clapp, Blake, Pierce, and others, Puritan or Pilgrim, of English descent.” Excerpt from the Granite monthly, Vol. 9

    I also have Charles Henry Pope’s info regarding the Pope Genealogy…and I found the article on Albert Augustus Pope also intriguing regarding the bicycles… My ggggrandfather Hiram Pope introduced Golden Russet Apples to the State of Maine in his orchards in W Gardiner, Maine, where his father Elijah Pope had built their home from bricks he made himself with the clay on their land. Obviously we lucky Popes are very talented, intelligent, hardworking people! There is also a Portion of the Pope Genealogy by Col William Pope, of Boston 1862 which names several Popes found in the area at the time… also in the information are the Will of each John Pope. The will of John Pope (and Margaret) lists children of John whether living or deceased, one of which is Thomas, deceased, the eldest son… John, of Lancaster, his second son was also deceased. None of his children or Margaret were members of the Church of Dorchester until after his passing.. beginning in 1692. A Thomas Pope is also listed in the Will of John Sr. as a brother, along with a brother in law named Joshua…Patience Pope is the daughter of John Pope and Jane Clapp…b in 16(can’t remember),( I will have to look at my records), in England.
    We still must not forget the word “presumed” which is used so often in this genealogical link… Our John Pope is also listed by Col William Pope, (b. 1787, Mar 30 at Charleston, SC, son of Samuel Ward Pope and Mary Wood), as having come from “London or thereabouts”. John’s lands were in Squantum he left to his sons…and in the Will of Dr. Ralph Pope (Ralph, John), there also stood a Saw Mill…
    I have been researching the line of the Popes from John m Alice, then Margaret for about 12 years off and on (along with my other paternal and maternal lines), many times being sidetracked and starting off on another branch of the children, but until I can actually confirm, I feel fully comfortable with leaving that next generation at a question mark… for now… I know someone out there has a treasure we need..they simply don’t know it..
    Personally… and it is my opinion…. I don’t believe the two John Popes are father and son… maybe uncle and nephew… but not father and son… Shari

      More on the matter of John, son of John Pope from Charles Henry Pope;
      ” 27th of the Ii mo : 45.” ” Of the great lotes and captines neck Jo: Phillips John Smyth Henrie Way and John Pope senior.”

      The meaning of this phrase is, in my opinion, this:

      The John Pope of whom we have been learning had a son John, now at least twenty-one years old, living at this time in Dorchester, and therefore it had become necessary for the clerk to specify which of the two he meant.

      We note this the more eagerly, because some historians, who had not read this statement of the clerk, have doubted whether John Pope, the first, of Dorchester, was the father of John Pope, the second. But this word ” senior ” is very strong. To be sure, some cases have been observed in records of that half century in England and America, where the word senior was applied to the elder of two brothers of the same Christian name; but these were so rare, and usually explained by those who mentioned them, that they need hardly be brought into the account. And, after examining the Dorchester journal carefully, referring to the known history of the persons called senior therein, we cannot find any case (unless this be one) where it does not signify the father of a namesake. So we consider this a definite proof of such relationship.

      • Eaton Family Tree Says:

        And furthmore: There was a custom in the south and west of England, known as “Borough English,” in accordance with which a father gave wild or ” assert” lands to his eldest son (at his majority, often), but gave the homestead to his youngest. We shall be informed in a court order regarding the division of the estate of the second John Pope, that he had given ” a quantity of land ” to his eldest son, Thomas, before his death, and the home place went to the youngest, Ralph. So this Ralph gave his eldest and third sons their portions in the ” New Grant ” (Stoughton), while he bequeathed his ” homestall” to the second and youngest sons. From these facts it may be fairly judged that the Pope family habit was to give the eldest son a portion in outlying lands, and to let the home estate pass to the younger child or children. The ” Goodman ” had undoubtedly drawn a share of land at Squantum, as other of the earliest settlers did, although there is not any record of the grant.

        And John, junior, who must have been of age before the clerk felt constrained to note the father as ” senior,” had, in all probability, received a generous farm and means; so that he had neither claim nor desire to be mentioned in his father’s will. If there were other sons, they do not appear at Dorchester, nor do we have a hint of other daughters, though there may have been. No will proves the non-existence of persons not named in it; but there is evidence in the added statement of the witnesses, about the widow’s having the goods and disposing of them, whether the daughter was dutiful or not, that there were other heirs to whom the widow would give the property if Patience was not kind to her !

    • L.J. Bishop Says:

      I am looking for information on Hiram Pope, Sr., born 1841 in Arkansas (I think). He married Martha “Mattie” Felts. I believe he died in Mississippi County, Arkansas. I have also heard he was overseer of a plantation in the Nodena area. What I have came from Ancestry.com but I’d like family history, pictures, etc.
