Ok so…finally I think I have gathered enough circumstantial evidence to be 90% sure of a few things regarding our Philip. While we still do not have anything that clearly states Philip, James, Asa Jr., John, Stephen & David were all brothers…and sons of Asa – through the deeds we can tell at one time or another they all lived within a close proximity to each other, where it seems the other Philip Jr. lived near the Sheldon/Sheldings Family, the Boyd’s & his father-in-law Ezekiel Stevens.

We can also see through the deeds that David Calef was also nearby our Philip and he was said to have married their sister Polly. As for the other sisters, I’m still not sure and will have to visit that briefly in my blog specifically about Asa. I highly recommend if you descend from one of the other brothers to do further research on the deeds in Hillsborough County as there are still more for the others I have not read. I also realize for most people this will all be clear as mud. I will at some point write up a proof summary which hopefully will be easier to follow and prove the situation better.

It seems adding to the confusion of our Philip is the fact that not only did Philip Jr remove to NY but our Philip did also, and further it seems that, he likely did have a second wife & more children. I am currently following this lead in Herniker County NY but those results will need to be discussed in an update at a later time. This lead is indicated in the census records (see part I) & the following deed:

Feb 24 1823 148-238 Philip of Winfield, NY to Dudley Porter of Haverhill “This indenture made this 24 day of February 1823 between Phillip Haseltine of the town of Winfield in the county of Herkiner and state of New York, and Dudly Porter of Haverhill”, Essex, Ma land from James Patterson of Londonderry, Phillip for the sum of 609.47 pd by Dudley land purchased from James Patterson Nov 4 1811; also all the land leased to him by Patterson with the same date. Witnesses John Goff & Hugh Boyes

Nov 4 1811 92-173 Philip Husbandman from James Patterson of Londonderry, 1500.00 tract description of land in Manchester doesn’t have names, mentions bridge, also common land purchased from [Merserins?] Webster; Witness John Dinsmore & William Rogers

May 1 1812 93-532 Philip to Dudley Porter Jr. of Haverhill, Merchant same land from James Patterson of Londonderry also mortgage 344.00 Witness Samuel Knight & Eleazer Porter; Philip mortgages the land from Porter

The next few deeds are for my ggg grandfather Simon Hazelton, Philip’s son and it seems safe to say it would be very weird if Simon mortgaged the same land if it wasn’t his father’s, which now connects us to the Philip in Herkiner County, NY.

Oct 9 1834 180-109 – Hard Copy – Simon Heselton of Manchester Yeoman 350.00 to James McQuestion & Gilbert Greeley, farm in Manchester called Porter Farm, lately occupied by James Arwine [who was one of the paupers in town see pg 91 of Early Records of the Town of Manchester, Formerly Derryfield, New Hampshire, 1817-1828]  bounded on the southeast corner by Samuel Gamples hog pen,, northerly by Samuel Gamble’s land, to Israel Merrill’s land occupied by Josiah Perry, southerly by Merrill’s land & land of Thomas Gamble,  & eastwardly to the bound first mentioned. 40 acres reserving the highway. Witnesses: Elbridge Weston, Frederick G. Stark,  Appeared Oct 29 1834. Condition of the deed Simon shall pay McQuestion & Greeley 250.00, payable by two notes each for 125.00 to each man. Side Bar Aug 28 1835 Gilbert Greeley

Note & deed dated Oct 8 1836 192-114 – Hard copy – Simon Heseltine of Manchester, yeoman to David Young of Manchester, Yeoman, 200.00, Land w/ buildings, 40acres that he bought from Gilbert Greeley & James McQuestion[?] where I now live, bound on the south by Thomas Gamble, on the east & north by Samuel Gamble, west by Josiah Perry reserving the highway through the same. Mortgage – Simon is to pay according to his note in words the sum of 200.00 with interest dated ; Witnesses: William P. Farmer & Sam’l Jackson; Side bar “Aug 16, 1837 [?] David Young”

Further, these brief deed notes are all for land that was very near or abutting previously mentioned land and still there are even more not mentioned here:

 ·         70-190-191 Phillip from Thomas Cheney 20 ac by Jonathan Aikens, Little Pond Brook so called, David Haselton’s land, Jun 14 1805

Ok, last week I left off with the deeds that were definitely our Philip & Alice Haseltine. So this week I’m picking up with the deeds that I need to prove are the same couple and not the other Philip Jr, because unfortunately the two Philip’s were not consistently labeled differently and require more chatter about why they belong to our Philip & not the other.

So, the following deeds are also our Philip’s & we know this because these connect back to the definite deeds from last week [HC deed 67-335 & 73-413]. Also in these deeds we can clearly see that David & Stephen Haseltine are definitely brothers. However, there is no confirmation or denial that Philip Haseltine is or isn’t their older brother. One very small thing leads me to believe he could be though… & that is the fact that Philip bought this land from Stephen for 550.00 & sold it to David for 20.00. That is a pretty significant loss unless we can find something else that may have been done in conjunction with it to make more sense of that.

Feb 15 1802 : 69-485 Stephen Haselton,  Derryfield, yeoman to Philip Haseltine, Derryfield, yeoman, 550.00, “the full half of the land that I the said Stephen & my brother David Hesselton bought from Thomas Griffe said land is situated in said Derryfield the whole of said land contains 110 acres be the same nore or less to be equally divided quantity by quality reference being had to the deed that said Griffen gave to the said Stephen & David Hesselton where the bounded of said land is fully described or however the same may be butted and bounded with the one half of the buildings on said land -----“ Signed Stephen Heseltine; Witnesses: John & Mary Bell, John Bell being Justice of the Peace. Recorded Apr 29 1806 by Isaac Brooks, Regr.

Jan 7 1809 : 93-217-218 Philip Haseltine of Derryfield, Yeoman to David Haseltine, Derryfield, Husbandman, “for the sum of twenty dollars” [after having pd 550.00?] “ A certain part of a lot of land which David Haseltine & Stephen Haseltine bought of Thomas Griffen and is bounded as follows south on land of David Flints and east on land of David Dickey and northerly on land of Majr John Miltemors and westerly on the road leading from David Calf house to Capt John Perems and contains 54acres be the same more or less.” Signed by Philip Heseltine; Witnesses Daniel & Eliza Miltimore, Daniel Miltimore being Justice of the Peace; Recorded Mar 27 1812 by Isaac Brooks Regr.
         If we then look for the purchase from Thomas Griffen we find:

Sept 27 1801 : 53-472 Thomas Griffin, Derryfield, Yeoman to to David Hasseltine & Stephen Hasseltine, Derryfield, Husbandmen, 800.00, tract of land in Derryfield “containing 110 aces be the same more or less bounded northerly by Thomas Cheney’s land, westerly on Cohas Brook, Southerly by Jonathan Young & Peter Emerson’s land , and easterly on William Perry’s and John Griffin’s land, it being all the land I bought of my father Ceaser Griffin and part of the land I bought of William Gregg and others & is all the land I now own in said Derryfield, reserving out of said  bounds all the laid out highways - Also a pew in said Derryfield meetinghouse situated on the ground floor and adjoining the wall on the south side of the east door.” Signed by Thomas Griffin & Pamil [or Parnil?] Griffin; Witnesses John Bell & John Bell Jr.; Recorded Oct 26 1801.

From there it seems these two deeds from last week [also detailed the] are in a very close approximation of the same land: 

Feb 16 1804 : 67-335 Phillip & Alice Haseltine of Derryfield, Husbandman to David Flint of Derryfield, Husbandman. 500.00 land in Derryfield, 40 ac, bounded “on the north line of Jonathan Young’s farm”, “southeast corner of Peter Emerson’s land”, “highway on the southwestly side of the road leading by the barn on the farm which belonged to Thomas Griffin”, then on to the north side of the highway  near the NW corner of the house that Jacob Atwood now lives,  to Capt John Perham’s land, aforesaid Young’s Farm, “with all the buildings standing on said premises”. Signed Philip Heseltine & Alice heseltin.. Witnesses: Isaac Huse & Jacob Atwood, Philip appeared before John Stark Jr Mar 13 1804, Recorded Nov 8 1805 by Isaac Brooks Regr

Apr 23 1806 : 73-413 Phillip & Alice Haseltine of Derryfield, Husbandman, to David Flint of Derryfield, Husbandman, 350 dollars, land in Derryfield butted by said Flint’s land & land of Jonathan Young, then west by Young’s land to the SE corner of Peter Emerson’s land, the northerly by Emerson’s land to the highway leading from David Dickey’s to Major Aikens then by said hwy to land owned by Capt John Perham’s land, back to Flint’s land, 35 acres, reserving the highways, signed by Philip heseltine & Alice heseltine; Witnesses: Samuel P Kidder & Wm Blodget; Philip appeared before Samuel P. Kidder JP Apr 23 1806; Recorded Jun 10 1807 by Isaac Brook Regr.

In addition - I am adding this deed on Massabesic Pond as it must also be our Philip -  
 Aug 29 1801 - 63-292 & 293 Philip Haseltine of Derryfield, Yeoman, to Currier Fitz of Londonderry, Husbandman,  – 56.00 one undivied half in Derryfield 76acres be the same more or less and which is part of Lot 23 of 2nd Dev laid out to the original right of Shadrach Walton in Chester grant bounded as follows: beginning at the northeast corner of the land originally Thomas Silvers at a large rock by the side of Massabesic Pond thence North west, sixty four and a half rods to the northwest corner of James Adams additional lands thence north forty three and three quarters degrees west about sixty one rods to a birch tree marked standing on the line formerly owned by Timothy Dustin being the corner of land I sold to James Haseltine [deed not found] thence north forty two and a half degrees east, about ninety two rods & three quarters of a rod to a stake & stones on the common land, thence south east to Massabesic Pond, thence by said pond to the first mentioned bound ---reserving out of said bounds for highways; Signed by Philip heselton; Witnesses by John Bell & John Bell Jr. Recorded Oct 20 1804 by I Brooks Regr

Harkness State Park, Waterford, CT
Canton Foundry & Machine Co.
I must admit when I first saw this in the Carriage House at Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford CT I assumed it was used to turn horse drawn carriages completely forgetting that the estate was built after the turn of the century. Then I saw something that referred to it as a firing pivot - which totally confused me and led me to this post. First patented by the Canton Foundry & Machine Co in 1910 under patent number US 971796, it was actually used to turn automobiles. Imagine that?

& Joseph bond who affirmed John haseltine signed sealed & declared this is his last will & testament.

Also a statement dated Mar 24 1696/7 from John heseltine of haverhill regarding the estate "of my father John heseltine latte of said haverhill deceased" In it he describes the part of the estate which is his and signs off on any further claims to the estate. His portion described as follows:  half of the home land within fence and one half of the spicket meadow and one half of the meadow at polict and the one half of the hous medow and thirteen acres of upland next to land of Joseph bond and fiveteen acres more out of the home land and that y[?] of land of 21 acres ore or less lying  out the way against John caulist and the one half of that lot caled wilcarts lot.

At the bottom of the same document he notes his obligation to pay "to my natural mother Johannah haseltine" for her natural life, four pounds and 10 shillings yearly. This is said to fulfill the obligation his father stated for the benefit of his mother and the other part for the benefit of the orchard.

There is also a similar document presented by Nathaniel Haseltine of Haverhill describing the portion of the estate that is his dated Mar 24 1696/7. It states one half of the home lot within the fence and one half of spicket meadow and one half of the meadow at policy and about 20 acres on the northward part of the home land and 16 acres more or less in the home land at the head of the planting land and 13 acres more or less  ??? land of daniel las sen'r formerly his land and one half of the lote called wittcots lote. He aquits all further claims by him or his heirs. At the bottom it also notes his obligation "to my naturall mother Johannah hesseltine"; four pounds 10 shillings yearly, to be paid quarterly.

An inventory list of assets also appears.
