||William Palmer (first of this family in America), born about 1585, died in 1638. residence: Plymouth and Duxbury.|
He married first Frances (?), who came to America in the ship Ann in 1623. He married second Mary Trine, who came in the ship Fortune in 1623.
There are two versions of his will, made 4 Dec. 1637 and proved in Plymouth 5 March 1638. First: "...To my young wife one third of my estate...To possible heir one third of estate and if said heir does not appear, deal leniently with my granddaughter Rebecca and also Moses Rowley, whom I love, and legacies to Stephen Tracy...To the meeting house at Plymough and to John Willis 40 shillings also, to Henry and Bridgett 40 shillings, they being my children, if they are living and demand it..." Moses Rawley was his apprentice.
Another version of the same will: "...Whereas I married a young woman who is dear unto me, I desire that she hav not less than a third of my estate. To Rebecca my grandchild and Moses Rawley, whom I love, but not so to put it into their father's or mother's hands...I desire my executors to give something to Stephen Tracy, something to the Plymouth church, and also wish that young Rawley may be put with Mr. Partridge, that he may be brought up in the fear of God, and to that end, if his father suffer it. I give to Mr. Partridge 5 pounds. to my son Henry and daughter Bridgett 40 shillings..." Mr. Partridge was the minister of Duxbury.
The expected heir appeared, for the old records show that: "Know all men by these presents, that I william Palmer of Plymouth, cooper, son of William Palmer of Duxburrow, Naylor, deceased, release William Bradford, Edward Winslow and Thomas Prence for 51 pounds, mare, cattle, goods under my father's will, received by me William Palmer, 19 April 1659..." At this date William Palmer would have been just 21 years old.

Thee is also record of a legal action taken by John Willis and his wife Elizabeth, in a complaint against Mr. William bradford, Mr. Edward Winslow and Mr. Thomas Prence, executors of the will f William Palmer Sr., deceased. They sought damages for 20 pounds for a lot of land which complainant pretended he had right to by the marriage of his wife, who had formerly been he wife of William Palmer the younger, son of said William the elder. The jury found for the defendants and gave them 12 pounds in damages and the charges of the court, according to Plymouth Colony records, Judicial Acts, page 7, 2 Jan. 1637/8.

||William Rawson, third son of Edward, was educated to a mercantile life, and became a prominent merchant and an importer of foreign goods. up to the time of his marriage, in 1673, he resided with his father in Rawson's Lane, now Broomfield Street, Boston, where he kept a dry goods store. At the age of 22 years he was married to Anne Glover, only daughter of Mr. Nathaniel and Mary (Smith) Glover of Dorchester, Mass., as the following certificate, copied from the ancient Bible, will show:|
"This may certify all whomsoever it may concern,e that on ye 11th day of July, 1673, on a certificate I received, that William Rawson and Anne Glover, ye daughter of ye late Mr. Nathaniel Glover, had been duly and legally published, I joined them in marriage at the house and in the presence of Mr. Habackuk Glover, his wife, Mr. Edward Rawson, father of ye sd William Rawson, and friends. As witness my hand, this 31st of July 1673.
Edward Tyng, Ass't."
It seems they were faithful to the great and first command given to man - to be fruitful and multiply - for in the space of twenty-five years they had twenty children. Only five sons of them, however, living to grow up and have families of their own. He purchased a house of Mr. John Glover of Boston (an uncle of his wife), and must have resided in Boston some years.
In 1689, he sold his estate back to Mr. Glover, of whom he purchased, and removed with his family to Dorchester, where he resided upon a portion of "Newbury Farm", inherited by his wife. he afterwards purchased of the heirs of his great uncle, the Rev. John Wilson, a tract of land situated in Braintree, "being a portion of the land granted to this most worthy and distinguished Divine by the General Court of the Colony," which he made into a homestead, and which is now known as the "Ancient Rawson Farm." It is situated near Neponset village, adjoining the homestead of the Hon. Josiah Quincy. It has been passed down from father to son, unto the fifth generation. From William to his son David, who left it to his son Jonathan in 1760, then to Jonathan, Jr., and his sister Mary, in 1782, between whom it was divided. In 1819, Jonathan, Jr., left his portion to his son Samuel, who died in 1854, unmarried; leaving it to his sister Clarissa, now 75 years of age, and the only one of the children of Jonathan, Jr., still living. The other portion, owned by Mary and her husband, Mr. Lemuel Billings, passed into the hands of their son, John Billings, who left it to his son, Lemuel, who now owns the whole estate, having recently purchased of Clarissa Rawson her interest in the same. His house is on the same spot, where the house of William Rawson once stood. Here, upon this spot, sacred to their memory, William and Anne lived nearly forty years; here they died. He, Sept. 20, 1726, in his 75th year. She, about 1730, aged 74 years.

||William Wetherell was of the educated class in England, where he was born in the year 1600. His education was completed at Cambridge, where he graduated with the degree of A.B. in 1623, and three yeas later he took the degree A.M. at the same university. In 1625 he was married to Mary Fisher, who was born in England in 1602.|
With his wife, three children and one servant, he emigrated to New England, coming in the ship HERCULES, and in the ship's register he is recorded as "Schoolmaster," from Maidstone, England. He arrived in 1634 or sooner, and in 1635 he was employed in a grammar school at Charleston, Massachusetts, and in Cambridge during the two years following that.
In 1638 he removed to Duxbury, Massachusetts, where he purchased a house, but it has not been discovered what his occupation at that time was. In 1644 he moved to Scituate, Massachusetts, and on September 2, 1645, he was ordained as the first minister of the church organized there, and from that time the church records are in his handwriting until 1674. As his pastorate did not terminate at the latter date we conclude he was compelled by some infirmity to permit others to write the records after that. He died at Scituate April 9, 1684, aged 84 years.
He seems to have been a man of marked personality, and to have given the impress of his strong character on the community in a way that has left its legacy of legendary lore. One anecdote handed down by tradition will serve to illustrate alike the quality of the man and the customs of the day; customs so different from our own in church matters that it is difficult to fully realize it. One of his congregation had entered church after service had commenced, and at the close of his prayer Mr. Wetherell thus addressed him:
"Neighbor Bryant, it is to your reproach that you have disturbed the worship by entering late, living as you do within a mile of this place, and especially so, since here is Goody Barstow, who has milked seven cows, made a cheese, and walked five miles to the House of God in good season."
Dean's "History of Scituate, Massachusetts," gives some account of him, and credits the tradition that his mother was the daughter of John Rogers, the martyr of Smithfield. Beside attending to his schoolteaching and later to his ministerial duties, it would seem that he found time to court the muse, for it is recorded of him that he "was one of the best of the early colonial poets.
