I am interested in how or where you found out what the maiden name of Sarah Pope whose husband was Pilgrim Pope born 1790. I have researched my family for some time and have never been able to find out. She and Pilgrim had a daughter, Elizabeth "Betsy" born in 1812 who married Nehemiah Tower. If Sarah's name was "Tower" just what is the connection to Nehimah or was it just happenstance?

Reference: Some Colonial and Revolutionary Families of North Carolina, Vol. 1, Compiled By Marilu Burch Smallwood of Washington, Published by The Author 1964.

The following records were copied from a pamphlet, "The Name and Family of Pope", compiled by the Media Research Company" of Washington, D.C.:

The name of Pope is believed to have been of Latin origin and to have originally meant 'father'. It is thought probable that the name was taken into England about the time of the Roman occupation of Britain, in the year 465 A.D., or before.
Certainly there was a town called Popeham (home of Pope) prior to the Norman invasion of England in 1066... Families of Pope were early situated in the counties of Oxford, Sussex, Kent, Devon, Dorset, York, Herts, Salop, Suffolk, Cornwall, and Northampton, and in the city of London. They were for the most part of the landed gentry and yeomanry of Great Britain....
Of the Oxfordshire line of the family, Thomas Pope was living in the year 1287 and is believed to have been the ancestor of John Pope, who married in the early part of the 15th Century to Grace Simpson, by whom he had issue William, who was the father of John and Thomas, of whom the first was the father of a son named William, who was created Earl of Downe and Baron of Beltirbet, Ireland. This William was the father of Thomas and William of whom the second had a son named Thomas who succeeded to the family titles and estates after the death of his uncle without male issue but left only female heirs himself....
There is evidence that the family of the famous poet of the early eighteenth, Alexander Pope, was of the same stock as that given above. His immediate ancestors, however, resided in London...
Of the Suffolk Co branch of the family, Ralph Pope was living at the beginning of the fourteenth century and was the father of at least one son, Sir William Pope, and probably others, including John Pope, who was living in Suffolk in 1367. In the following century Thomas and Robert Pope were the heads of families in that Co. Of the Sussex line, Thomas Pope of the fifteenth century had issue by his wife Jane Weston, of John, who was the father of Edmund, who had Nicholas, who had Thomas and John. Of these last-mentioned sons, Thomas was the father of Ralph, who died about 1621, leaving several sons. Although it is not definately known in every case from which of the many lines of the family in England the early American emigrants of the same name were descended, it is generally believed that most, if not all, of the Popes derive from a common European ancestor, of a remote period.
Probably the first Pope to come to America was Thomas, who came to Plymouth, Mass., about the year 1630. In 1637, he married Ann Fallowell, by whom he had at least one child, named Hannah. By his second wife, Sarah Jenny, whom he married in 1646, he had issue of Seth Sussannah, Sarah, Thomas, Joanna, Isaac, John and Patience.
John Pope, who came from Devonshire, England about 1633, made his home at Dorchester, Mass. He was the father by his wife Jane of John, Patience, Nathan and possibly others. By a 2nd wife named Alice, he is believed to have had another son named Thomas. Some family historians assert that he was accompanied to America by his brothers Thomas and Joshua...
In the year 1634, one Walter Pope was living at Charlestown, Mass. It is believed that he was the father of several children.... Joseph Pope who appears to have been a son of Robert Pope of Yorkshire, England, came to Salem, Mass. in 1634. He was followed shortly by his brother Richard, who probably stayed only a short time and then returned to England. Joseph was the father by his wife Gertrude of eight children: Demaris, Hannah (died in infancy), Hannah, George, Joseph, Benjamin, Samuel and Enos.
Another early settler was Ephraim Pope of Boston, who was the father by his wife Anne of at least two children, Elizabeth and Ephraim and probably others.
Another John Pope resided at Dorchester at an early date and had issue by his first wife of four sons: Thomas, William, Ebenezer and John. By his 2nd wife Margaret he had further issue of Margaret, Sussanah, Thankful, Ralph, Alice, Jane and Joseph. The greater number of the Southern families of the name are believed to be descended from Nathaniel Pope, who emigrated to Virginia about the year 1664. He was the father of Nathaniel, Thomas and Ann, many of the descendents of whom made their homes in Kentucky and Georgia.
Others of the name who were living in America at early dates but whose records are not complete were Thomas of Suffield, in 1687; John of Springfield in 1678; and Thomas of Virginia and Kentucky, in the latter part of the Eighteenth Century...
Among the Popes who served in the Revolution were Lieutenant Colonel Charles, of Delaware; Colonel Edward of MA; Lieutenant Colonel Frederic, of MA; and Colonel John of Virginia. Joseph, John, Thomas, Ralph, Ephraim, Walter, William, Samuel and Isaac are some Christian names most favored by the family for its male progeny.
One of the best known of the several coats of Arms which has been granted at various times to the Pope family is described as follows. (Burke, General Armory, 1884) ; Arms ... 'Or two chevrons gules, turned up ermine, and heraldic tiger statant argent, tufted, maned, collared, ringed, and lined. '

"The daughter of Nathaniel Pope I, who was the second wife of John Washington, the first settler (who came over with his brother Lawrence Washington, from Lancaster, England...) Nathaniel Pope II married a Miss Smith of Williamsburg, VA, and at his death 'Pope's Creek' was sold and his children scattered. His son William Pope moved to Farquier Co, VA, his son John moved to Dumfries Prince William Co, VA, John Pope, son of Nathaniel Pope I went to KY...
(Note: Some of the DuVals moved to Edgecombe Co, NC. They intermarried with Popes.)

The Pope family is English in origin. The name was probably derived from the Greek papas and Latin papa. "The priest who slays the sacrifice". It may have also been introduced to England by the Saxon's, whose Bopp, of similar meaning, is believed to have Roman or Argan derivation's. The word has been variously spelled: Poppe, Pop, Popp & Pope.

John JENNEY emigrated in 1623.(1517) He died in Jun 1644 in Plymouth Colony, MA. (1518) He was born in Norwich, Holland ?. (1519)

Jenney, John

John Jenney arrived at Plymouth in 1623 on the Little James with his wife Sarah and children Samuel, Abigail, and Sarah. Captain Altham of the Little James (Three Visitors, p. 24) noted that "Good wife Jennings was brought abed of a son aboard our ship." Banks called Jenney a cooper of Norwich, County Norfolk, but Leiden records of his 1614 marriage to Sarah Carey, of Monk's Soham, County Suffolk, call him a brewer's man from Norwich (Dexter, p. 619), and Winslow also called him a brewer and noted that he was among those Englishmen in Holland who could speak Dutch and would sometimes take communion in the Dutch Church (Hypocrisie Unmasked, p. 63). He owned a grain mill in Plymouth, and he was a Purchaser, but not an Undertaker, as has been written. He was one of the colony's leaders, however, serving as an Assistant.
After he and his wife died, his family moved to Dartmouth, with which the name Jenney became associated. See the article in TAG 35:70 by Bertha Clark, whose excellent manuscript on the Jenney family is at NEHGS in Boston. Also of interest is the account given of the Jenney family in Small Descendants 2:646; see also Frederick G. Jenny, "John Jenny," NEHGR 115:233. John's son Samuel, apparently the son born on the Little James, married Susanna Wood; daughter Sarah married Thomas Pope as his second wife; and daughter Abigail married Henry Wood and lived in Yarmouth and Middleborough (see Bowman, "Mistress Sarah Jenny's Will and Inventory," MD 8:171). In John Jenney's will, dated 28 December 1643, he cautioned, "Whereas Abigaile my eldest Daughter had somewhat given her by her grandmother and Henry Wood of Plymouth aforesaid is a suter to her in way of marriage my will is that if shee the said Abigaile will Dwell one full yeare wth mr. Charles Chauncey of Scittuate before her marriage (pvided he be willing to entertaine her) that then my said Daughter Abigall have two of my cowes and my full consent to marry wth the said Henry Wood" (MD 6:170); however, the marriage took place four months later on 28 April 1644 (MD 13:86). [p.316]

On 2 January 1633/34 rates were again assessed by the new governor, Thomas Prence, and William Bradford, Captain Standish, John Howland, Stephen Hopkins, John Doane, William Gilson, William Collier, John Jenny, Robert Hicks, Jonathan Brewster, Kenelm Winslow, and Stephen Deane. Only eighty individuals were rated this time, and we can note that some of the names on the 1632/33 list, but missing from the 1633/34 list, were among those who had died in the epidemic, though in a few cases their widows took their places. The ratings consisted of:26

£0/9 shillings—45 individuals
£0/12 shillings—7 individuals
£0/18 shillings—13 individuals
£1/4 shillings—3 individuals
£1/7 shillings—8 individuals
£1/10 shillings—1 individual (Stephen Hopkins)
£1/16 shillings—1 individual (Isaac Allerton)
£2/5 shillings—2 individuals (William Collier &
—Edward Winslow)


On 1/11 Oct., 1634, John Jenney, Francis Cooke and five others were appointed to lay out highways for Plymouth. [C. O., I:71]

He was married to Sarah CAREY on 5 Sep 1614 in Leyden, Holland.(1520) (1521) THE MARRIAGE OF JOHN JENNEY AND SARAH CAREY

IN the accompanying illustration we reproduce the record of the marriage, at Leyden, of John Jenney and Sarah Carey, who came to Plymouth in the "Anne" in 1623. This marriage is entered in the Leyden records, Echt Book B., folio 33 vervo. A literal copy of the Dutch records and an English translation follow:

POPE, Seth, Capt., Mar. 17, 1726-7. [Seth Esq. of Dartmouth, in 79th year, [on stone beside those of Deborah and Rebecca] gravestone record, Acushnet Cemetery (established in the reign of Queen Anne in the old Township of Dartmouth)] According to the Pope genealogy, there is little known of his early history. "Tradition, in part confirmed by the records," indicated that about 1670 he appeared as a peddler in Sandwich, whereupon the constable ordered him to depart, lest in the future he become a charge upon the town. He accordingly withdrew, remarking that he would come back and buy up the town.

Procuring a boat at Monument, he went to Acushnet, settled within the present limits of Fairhaven, and ultimately became one of the most wealthy and influential citizens of the old colony. The Pope genealogy outlines his various accomplishments, and mentions that he was apparently for many years interested in the coastwise trade, owning a wharf and warehouse at Acushnet, and a part of the sloop Hopewell and Joanna and Thankful.

In 1700 he made good on his promise to the town that first snubbed him, and purchased a large amount of realty in the village, including the grist-mill, fulling-mill and weaving-shop. At the time of his death, his estates in Dartmouth were extensive and valuable, comprising several farms and dwelling houses, a saw and grist-mill, a well-stocked store and warehouse, and other property.

MD: Seth2 Pope, who married Deborah Perry and Rebecca; Thomas2 Pope, probably died young; John2 Pope, probably died young; Sarah2 Pope, married Samuel Hinckley; Joanna2 Pope, married John Hathaway4 (Sarah3 Cooke, John2, Francis1); Isaac2 Pope.
Thomas1 Pope made his will 9 July, 1683; and the inventory, in which he is called "of Dartmouth", was taken 4 August, 1683. The will appears to have been probated at Plymouth 2 November, 1683.

Parents: Thomas POPE and Sarah JENNEY.
He was married to Deborah PERRY about 1674 in Barnstable, Ma?.(2511) Although the Pope genealogy has Deborah as unknown, she can be traced through the will of Ezra Perry as excerpted below:

Excerpt from the will of Ezra Perry:

to Remember too Cows one bed and its ffurniture, one meare and all her Increse, also to my Son Ezra one Shilling To John Perry my Son one Shilling to Deborah my Daughter wife to Seth Pope one Shilling To Sarah wife to Epharim Swift one Shilling"

According to Bowan and the Pope genealogy, Seth Pope apparently married second, "Rebecca," all the listed children being attributed to Seth and Deborah and born in Dartmouth. Children were: Hannah POPE .
He was married to Rebecca. (50)

Seth POPE I believe this Seth may be the son of John and Elizabeth Pope or did Seth Jr. settle in Sandwich for a time.

[Plym. Col. Wills, 4:2: 50] July the 9th 1683

Between the Pope Genealogy, referenced herein, Bowman's notes, and various Vital Records, This family can be reasonably traced, however there are still many missing links.
The 10 year gap between the births of the first five children and that of Joanna and Isaac is mysterious.

Joseph Bartlett 3 died 18 February, 1711, in his 73d year, and his wife, Hannah2 Pope (Thomas1), died 12 March, 1710, in her 72d year. [Gravestones, Burial Hill.]

From what is known of Thomas through wills, deeds and altercations with Plymouth officials. he was apparently a fairly contentious individual, and ultimately removed from Plymouth to Dartmouth where two of his children are killed in the disastrous Indian raids upon the town, i.e., Susannah, her husband, Jacob Mitchell (descendant of Experience Mitchell and either his wife Mary or Jane Cooke) and John.

See photo for Susannah. Thomas1 Pope made his will 9 July, 1683; and the inventory, in which he is called "of Dartmouth", was taken 4 August, 1683. The will appears to have been probated at Plymouth 2 November, 1683.
THOMAS 1 POPE of Plymouth and Dartmouth, Mass., married, first, Anne2 Fallowell (Gabriel) of Plymouth. She died leaving one daughter, Hannah2 Pope, who became the wife of Joseph Bartlett 3 (Mary2 Warren, Richard1) of Plymouth.

Thomas1 Pope married, second, Sarah2 Jenney (John1) of Plymouth, who died before her husband made his will. Thomas1 and Sarah Pope appear to have had seven children: Susanna2 Pope, who married Jacob Mitchell3 (Jane2 Cooke, Francis1); Seth2 Pope, who married Deborah Perry and Rebecca——; Thomas2 Pope, probably died young; John2 Pope, probably died young; Sarah2 Pope, married Samuel Hinckley; Joanna2 Pope, married John Hathaway4 (Sarah3 Cooke, John2, Francis1); Isaac2 Pope.

The proof of the marriage of Hannah2 Pope and Joseph Bartlett is found in a deed from Thomas1 Pope to "my Son in law Joseph Bartlett", and in the will of the widow Katherine Fallowell, which mentions her grandchild "hannah the wife of Joseph Bartlett".
