Life in America
Wilson Family History by Wendell E. Wilson

James Babcock (1612-1679)
The Babcock family (originally spelled "Badcock") in America traces its origin to James Babcock, born in Essex County, England in 1612. He was the son of James Babcock (1580-1679) of Wivenhoe, Essex, England, who was the son of another James Babcock (b.ca.1554) of Essex. He was admitted as an inhabitant of Portsmouth, Rhode Island in 1642; at that time no one was allowed to build a house or plant crops without first being voted in as an official "inhabitant" at a town meeting. His first son had been born in 1641.
During his first 20 years in Rhode Island his name appears in the records under various spellings including Badcock, Babcock, Badcooke and Badcocke. It probably originated in Devon, England as Bade or Babb.
James Babcock was apparently a blacksmith. At a town meeting he and Richard Morris were ordered "to look up all the armes in the Towne within the month above writ," and to "mend any which are defective for use." At the same meeting, 10 acres of land were ordered "laide out to James Babcock at the first brook, next to the footpath eastward." He was made a "freeman" (resident with voting privileges) on 10 July 1648.
James Babcock moved from Portsmouth to Westerly, Rhode Island, in March of 1662, but continued to appear in Portsmouth records until 19 December 1662.
A tract of land some 10 x 20 miles, known as Misquamicut, was purchased on 29 June 1660 from Chief Sosoa. The purchasers, a company numbering 60 or more, organized themselves at Newport. Records in the Rhode Island Historical Society show that on 31 August 1661 the purchases were ordered by the Trustees to meet at Newport to go to "Squamucuck." Two weeks later the company was at "Misquamicut," and a part of the purchased tract was apportioned to the settlers by lot. James Babcock received Lot #52. On 12 November 1661 the number of trustees was increased from eight to 18. Two of the new names were James Babcock and John Babcock.
In 1665 James Babcock's wife, Sarah, gave permission (apparently on her deathbed) for him to sell their house, barn, orchard and other property in Portsmouth to Thomas Fish for £50. His son, James Babcock Jr., witnessed the deed. In May of that same year James Babcock and a company of men drove a band of Peaquot Indians from planting grounds they had claimed.In May of 1669 the town of Westerly was incorporated, at which time there were 24 freemen including James and his three sons, James, John and Job. Sarah had died by that time, and James married a woman named Elizabeth in 1669. Together they had three more children, but our ancestry is through son Job, born in 1646.
James, in his 59th year (1678), was baptized by Elder William Hiscox and joined the Seventh Day Baptist Church of Newport and Westerly. He declared his last will and testament to his sons John and Job on 12 June 1679. By September he had died, and his sons had to appear (17 September 1679) before the governor of Rhode Island and testify to the truthfulness of the will. A portion of the will names the three children he had by his second wife: Joseph, Nathaniel and Elizabeth.
Job Babcock (1646-1718)
Job Babcock was born in Portsmouth, Rhode Island in 1646 and married Jane Crandall, daughter of Rev. John Crandall (see CRANDALL FAMILY). The Babcock families moved from Portsmouth to found the new community of Westerly in 1662. Job opened a blacksmith shop and owned a grist mill on the Pawcatuck River. In 1779 he inherited his father's smithing tools.
Job Babcock was made a freeman (voting citizen) on 18 May 1669, at the time Westerly was officially incorporated. He took the oath of allegiance on 17 May 1671, and again on 17 September 1679. He was elected Constable in October 1680 and also in February 1693.
Jane Crandall Babcock, Job's wife, had a deed of 100 acres of land made to her by Samuel Lewis; Job declared that he gave Jane permission to make the purchase. Samuel Lewis's wife, Joanne Crandall (also a direct ancestor of ours), was probably a relative of Jane, although her parents are currently unknown (see LEWIS FAMILY).
Job and Jane Babcock were members of the Seventh Day Baptist Church of Newport and Westerly in 1678. In 1680 Job was serving as an Indian interpreter, having learned their language.
Job and Jane Crandall Babcock had nine children, including our ancestor.
