Notes for Samuel LINCOLN

It is probable that the LINCOLN family is of Norman stock, as one Alfred DE LINCOLN held large landed possessions in the year following the Norman Conquest. In 1086 we find that Alfred DE LINCOLN'S son, Alan DE LINCOLN, succeeded to his father's great barony in Lincolnshire. The ancestor of the American [p.294] LINCOLNS settled in the County of Norfolk, but at what date is not known. In King John's reign, 1202-3, we find there one Ivo DE LINCOLN. The LINCOLNS were located in many parts of the country, but the ancestor of Samuel LINCOLN, of Hingham, Mass., came from Hingham, Norwich, Swanton and Carbrooke, and his descendants seem to have had strong pioneer instincts, as many became first settlers in the expanding territory of the United States.
SAMUEL LINCOLN, bap. in England, 24th Aug. 1622; d. 10th Apr. 1693. Was apprenticed as a weaver to Francis LAWES, of Norwich, England, and sailed with him from England, 8th Apr. 1637. Settled in Hingham, Mass., and followed his trade there. m. Martha (surname unknown)
