immigrant ancestor of this line of WORDENS in America.  Peter I settled in Yarmouth,
MA. and is probably the "old Worden" mentioned in a list of Yarmouth

Peter Worden II is often mentioned in the Plymouth Colony Records. On 2
June 1640 Peter II and two others were appointed to divide the woods of Philip
Woodelll.21  In 1643 Peter II with others of Yarmouth were required to provide a place
of  defense against sudden assaults, probably from Indian attacks.22   In 1648 Peter II
was to be accommodated in relation to land.23   In 1651 Peter II was on the Grand
Inquest .24

On 3 June 1652 Peter II and William Hailstone were fined for not appearing on a 
jury.25 On 5 Mar 1666/67 Peter II and William Lumpkin were each fined 10 
shillings for creating a disturbance in the Yarmouth Meeting House.26   In 1657 
Peter II among others, took the oath of fidelity.27 

In the Year 1669 Peter Worden II purchased land in Yarmouth, MA from the

paid a war tax of l8:2s:3d in 1675. 29 He was a petitioner of the Town
of Harwich, Mass. in 169430 

According to a deed recorded 8 Oct. 1702 in Barnstable, Mass., Peter II  is
buried in the Worden Burying Ground (aka Winslow & Homer Cemetery) in the north
east part of Dennis, Mass. near the Brewster town line (formerly part of Yarmouth).  In
this deed dated 12 Feb. 1696/97, Peter II's son Samuel Worden, sold land in Yarmouth
to Isaac Chapman " except one acre of land which I the said Samuel Werden except and
reserve to myself and to my father's posterity forever, for a burying place for my father's
posterity forever, lying square about the place where my father WERDEN was
buried.....31
  
There are memorial plaques on the probable sites of the graves of Peter I, Peter II and
Mary, wife of Peter II, Worden.

The Last will and testament of Peter Worden II was written on 9 Jan.
1680/81 with an addition added 29 July 1681.  This document names "my loving
wife Mary Worden, my son Samuell Worden, my daughter Martha, the  wife of
Joseph Severns; my daughter Mary the wife of John Burgis; my daughter Marcy;  my
son Kenelm Winslow." The will also mentions land Peter II purchased of "Mr. Allin";
Samuel Worden was the executor of his father's estate and the will was witnessed by
John Freeman and Silas Saers.  John Miller, John Hall Jr. & Paul Saers took an
inventory on 20 Jan. 1680 which included "an interest in house and land and money in
Old England not knowing what it may be worth."  Peter II's will was proved in
Plymouth, Mass. 3 Mar 1680. 32

Mary Worden's Last Will & Testament is dated 6 Mar. 1686.  Mary left her Indian
squaw to her son Samuel, her clothing to be divided among her three daughters Mary

son-in-law John  Burge who was her executor.  The will was probated 31 May 1687
and witnessed by  Sameul Sears, Silas Sears and Gov. Thomas Hinckley.33

In the Yarmouth Register of Births Year 1648 printed in Records of the
Plymouth Colony, Shurtleff there is the following: "The daughter of Peeter
WORDEN, Febrewary the tenth." Whether this is another daughter of Peter's is
unknown.

PETER II married MARY. MARY died on 5 May 1687 in Yarmouth, Barnstable Co.,
MA34

Some Records of Persons by the Name of Worden by Oliver N. Worden
published in 1868 states that Mary's maiden name was SEARS or WINSLOW but this
has never been documented.  The Winslow Memorial by Frances K. Holton, Vol. I
claims that Peter's daughter Mercy married her cousin Kenelm Winslow II but this term
was loosely used in this time period.  Mary WORDEN's maiden name may be forever
lost in the musty records of long ago.

grandson Richmond Stafford, aged 14, were ploughing corn a few rods from the house.
The weather was cloudy and a shower in prospect.  Soon after a severe flash of lightning
accompanied  with heavy thunder, Mr. Worden was alarmed by the calls of his son; when
he arrived at the fatal spot, shocking to behold! Richmond was a corpse, the horse on which
he was riding, dead; his son was sitting on the ground, unable to walk. It appears that the
lightning struck the boy , on the head, burst open his hat, descended to his feet, burning the
hair, skin and shirt in various places; and was conducted by the chains of the plough, tore
from the beam a large splinter which it carried 12 rods, and knocked down young Mr.
Worden, who was holding the plough, where he remained some minutes senseless; both his
legs were burnt from the hips to the feet; but there are hopes for his recovery. (Federal

Marcus Worden was a carpenter in Guilford, VT, and at one time it is said,
he ran a harness shop. He was involved in the rebuilding of the Green River
Covered Bridge in the Year 1874.  The Town Report for this year states he was
paid $1670.54 for woodwork and $8.00 for sign boards for his work on the
construction of this bridge.  Marcus was known for solving his math problems by THE
RULE OF THREE (the application of the doctrine of proportion to
arithmetical purposes by which we are enabled to find a fourth proportion to
three given numbers, that is a number to which the third bears the same ratio
as the first does to the second.507  I  visited the Green River Covered Bridge on 5 June
1977 and it is very picturesque. There are  several rural type mail boxes inside this
structure and at one time I was told, the townspeople  called it affectionately, the
smallest post office in the world.

The following is from the Brattleboro Phoenix.508  The Green River Bridge, with its
approaches, has at last been so far completed as to allow the passage of teams. The
bridge itself which replaces the one carried away in the freshet of 1869 was completed
some months ago. It is 108 feet long, covered and was built by Marcus Worden.  The
stone work was by Henry Day of Chesterfield, N.H. and cost of itself, some four or five
thousand dollars. The work of filling in the road has been long and tedious , but is now
finished as far needs to be for winter travel.  It is to be hoped  that we should be able to
enjoy our new bridge for awhile at least before the next freshet comes     

Marcus WORDEN owned land in Guilford. In 1870, while a resident of Green
River, VT, he sold 125 acres of land to Daniel Lazalle.509  In 1883 he purchased the
Hart Homestead of 80 acres which he deeded to his son Worthy the same year. 510

Marcus, from photographs, was a tall, stern looking man with a long white

The Last Will & Testament of Marcus Worden is dated 19 Nov. 1898 with a codicil
added 1 Dec. 1898.  He left $100 each to his daughter Susan Ann Prouty & his son
Baxter Holbrook Worden; property to his brother Peter Worden $500, his watch and
certain rooms in "the dwelling house" to his widow Lucinda.  To his son Herbert M.
Worden, no bequest was made as said Herbert had received "his rightful share of my
property" at an earlier time.  The remainder of Marcus' estate was to go to Worthy G.
Worden.  Marcus also bequeathed $100 to the Trustees of the  Cemetery Funds of the
Town of Halifax, VT to be placed in a savings bank and the income used "for the proper
care" of my burial lots in said Halifax whereon my wife Nancy Ward my brother
Ephraim Worden and Lizzie Hale and others are buried - said income also to be
applied to the care of the gate at sd cemetery." Worthy G. Worden and Lucinda
Worden were appointed co-executors of the estate. The document was witnessed by

From a copy of an excerpt from the Breed Family Bible owned by Mrs. Eloise

Breed from his mother January 27, 1926 Williamstown, Mass. "One of Peter
and Barbra WORDEN's daughters wrote to a friend in Pennsylvania on the death of
her parents......."father first then mother left us.....We shall meet them no more.  Death
has called and gently borne them from us to the other shore; long their feeble steps had
warned us, lone we'd seen it on their brow, Yet too soon we're called to speak it, oh we
have no parents now."  following this, is a poem signed with the initials
A.W.T.,Greenfield, Mass.  She was probably daughter Alsina Worden Thayer.

The following is from a lengthy  article in the VT Phoenix  regarding the career and
retirement of Judge Frank Worden, Asst Judge of the Windham County VT court of
Halifax, VT. "Judge Worden was born on the Seth Worden farm in West Halifax,
about half a mile from where he now lives, Sept. 18, 1832. He was one of ten children
of Seth and Delight (Barber) Worden, eight of whom , grew to maturity, six boys and
two girls.  The only survivors of the family are Judge Worden, and a sister, Mrs.
Lucinda Howard of Winchendon, Mass. widow of John D. Howard.  He attended the
schools of West Halifax, including a select school. When he was sixteen years old his
mother died, and after that he had to rely upon his own resources. At the age of about 24
he made over a building into a house, with which there was connected 25 acres of land,
and he lived there until after Mrs. Worden's death, which took place, nearly five years
ago, Then he bought the George L. Clark place, nearer the centre of the village, where
he has lived ever since, Mrs. Charles Briggs, formerly of Brattleboro, keeping house
for him.  He is widely respected  and has the confidence of the people throughout the
county and elsewhere .About the Year 1855 Judge Worden married Jane Eliza Wilson
of Wilmington, the marriage taking place in South Halifax.  She died Jan. 12, 1908. Six
children were born to them, three of whom are living.  They are F. Herbert Worden of
West Halifax, for a long time a school teacher; Hattie J. Mrs. O.R.Crozier of
Shelburne Falls, Mass. and Nellie M., Mrs. W.E. Combs of Brattleboro."  660

On 17 Apr. 1919 Baxter H & Ellen Worden celebrated their 50th Wedding
Anniversary and the following newspaper clipping was found tucked away in an
old book in The Rich Family residence at Orange, Mass. The newspaper name and
date was cut off but the article reads "Mr. & Mrs. Baxter H. Worden of Warwick
celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last week, Thursday, April 17, in their home
on the Wendall Road where they have lived most happily for a period of 49 years.  Their
relatives and friends made the occasion one of much cheer, the festivities lasting
throughout the day and well into the evening.  There were 40 present and at noon a
bountiful repast was served.  The usually quiet Worden home was transposed into a
lively atmosphere and no one enjoyed the affair more than the elderly couple.  They
received many letters and cards of congratulations as well as valuable gifts including
$50 in gold from their children and grandchildren.  Mr. Worden was born in 
Guilford, Vermont in 1847 and Mrs. Worden, whose maiden name was Ellen M.
Grout was born on the present homestead in 1845.  They were married in Guilford, VT
in 1869 and the following spring came to Warwick to live.  They have since made their
home on the pleasant little farm.  They have had six children all born on the farm, all of
whom are living and were present at the anniversary celebration.  They include Mrs.
Frank Rich of Orange, Mass., Mrs. Elliot Shepardson of Foxboro, Mrs. Walter
Wilber of Marlborough, Mrs. Romie Woodard of Wendall, Edward B. Worden of
Orange and Clifton H. Worden of Moncton, New Brunswick.  There are also 24
grandchildren, 15 of whom were present and six great grandchildren, two of whom were
present.  Mr. Worden is in excellent health and Mrs. Worden while not very robust, is
able to attend to the work about her home.  They are most favorably known in the
vicinity, Mr.Worden having held numerous town offices in Warwick for many years.

Included in the gifts, in addition to the purse of $50 mentioned, were the
following: pair of sterling silver spoons with gold bowels from a niece Abbie
J. Kahl and husband of Pennsylvania, a pyrex casserole from a niece, Clara
Grout from Randolph, VT, three pound box of chocolates from Wallace Putnam, New
York City, bouquet of flowers from Pearl Starks, Keene, NH, an anniversary register
from Mrs. C.W. Putnam, Warwick and a purse of money from other relatives and
friends.  The day was most delightful throughout and thoroughly enjoyed by all
concerned.  Mr. & Mrs. Worden extend their sincere thanks for the many expressions of
friendship and good will.  During the affair, the following poem composed by G.F.
Morse of Orange and formerly of Warwick was read --

         "Its fifty years ago today
         So all the records plainly say
         Since Baxter and Miss Ellen Grout
         On married life first started out.

         "They've lived upon the same old farm
          For fifty years in storm and calm
          And toiled together heart and hand
          To raise the produce from the lamd.

          It hardly seems so long ago
          The years have flown like April snow
          To brighten home the children came
          And Cora was the first by name.

          Then Mabel came along one day
          All full of life and full of play
          Maria came as number three
          To help to fill the house with glee

          As Hattie came as number four
          The girls to mention are no more
          But Edward was the first born boy
          To make his parents full of joy

          While Clifford is the youngest son
          He don't get left when there is fun
          These six I've named are first class stock
          With no black sheep within the flock

          They all grew up and left their home
          In other towns to live and roam
          But on this golden wedding day
          They all returned awhile to stay

          And may the home fires brightly burn
          For many years for their return
          At least until the distant time
          When diamond wedding bells will shine  (G.F.M.)
