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
