  • Name David DEMING  [1, 2
    • "Deming Genealogy": David Deming remained in Wethersfield, probably as late as 1690, in which year he received a tract of land there, from his father. In 1699 he appears in Cambridge, Mass., where he is called a "fence viewer," and in 1700 he was "tythingman". He owned the Brattle estate extending from Brattle Square to Ash Street. Before November, 1707, he removed to Boston; at which date he sold the westerly portion of this estate to Andrew Belcher and easterly portion, including the house, to Rev. Wm. Brattle. In the conveyance he is called "Knacker," which has been defined as "a maker of small work; a rope-maker."

      In his will dated 23 Apr. 1725, "being sick and weak," he discharges his son David of a debt of one hundred pounds more or less which he had bestowed upon him "at sundry times for his education at Collidge and since." To the three children of David, namely; David, Mercy, and Jonathan, he leaves a bequest in money. To his daughter Martha, wife of Henry Howell he leaves "one hundred pounds and household stuff and moveables." To his grandson Joseph Deming, son of Hannah Deming widow, he leaves "all that my dwelling house which I now dwell in, fronting to Newbury Street, with all the yard garden and premises thereunto belonging." In case of Joseph's death before he comes to the age of 21, then his brother John Deming is to have the property. to his son-in-law Henry Howell (blacksmith) he left the remainder of his estate. The inventory names "15 Seal-skins; 17 sheep-skins; and leather and tools." It also includes "Benjamin Deming's time valued at 24 pounds, and the Indian boy valued at 70 pounds." [1]
