His widow Susannah administered his estate in 1701-02 and was appointed guardian of 5 minor children all under the age of 14 in 1704. Susannah was at least 17yrs his junior which leaves room to speculate that Richard Jr. may have been previously married. There are no records to indicated this however. Parents: RICHARD SR. OTIS and Rose STOUGHTON.
RICHARD SR. OTIS was born on 27 Feb 1626 in Glastonbury, Somerset County, England. He died on 28 Jun 1689 in Dover, Strafford, N. H.. He was also known as Richard Otheys Sr.. INTRODUCTION: In general my genealogy of the Otis family follows the genealogy of THE OTIS FAMILY, CANADIAN BRANCH BY GERARD MALCHELOSSE, His genealogy of the Otis family."Branche Canadienne" was printed in 1921.The reader should bear in mind that there are two members of the Otis family whom have given Migraine headaches to the most outstanding genealogists. Mostly, It has to do with "HOW"the following two individuals are related. John (Jean-Baptiste dit L'Anglais) Otis. & Francoise-Rose Otis (Francoise Rozzotti) who married Jean Poitevin (Potvin) 29 Oct 1696 in Beauport, P. Q. Some genealogists believe that Francoise Rose could have been the daughter of Richard Sr's son, Stephen (Etienne) Otis and Mary Pitman. GERARD MALCHELOSSE who has done extensive research on the Otis family has listed Jean-Baptiste and Francoise Rose as children of Richard Sr. Otis second marriage to Anna-Shuah Starbuck. I have received information which contradicts Malchelosse's claim that Francoise-Rose Otis is the daughter of Richard Sr. Otis. ACCORDING FRANCOISE ROSE OTIS' MARRIAGE CONTRACT No. 193062 dated October 29, 1696 before Notaire M. Duprac of Beauport, the contract reads "Francoise Rosotis, origine (Anglaise des environs de Boston) Parents de Francoise Rosotis. Steven Otis et Marie Otis (sa mere)" which means "Francoise Rosotis, of English origin from the area of Boston. Francoise Rosotis parents are Steven Otis and Marie Otis, her mother. RICHARD SR. OTIS (OTHEYS), a blacksmith, born 27 Feb, 1626 in Glastonbury, Somerset County, England, settled in Dover, N. H. in about 1655. Richard Sr. Otis originally came to "New England" to join his uncle, JOHN OTIS who was already established in Ingham, Massachusetts. In the early part of 1655, Richard Sr. was a citizen of Boston. In the fall of that year he was granted 10 acres of land in Dover, New Hampshire, and by 1656 he owned 50 acres of land. Richard Sr. Otis' land is located on the east side of the Concheco River, a few acres from Major Richard Waldron's property in Dover, N. H. ( In the 1600s, the Dover area was known as CONCHECO). Richard Sr. was one of the four town elders. Richard Sr. was married 3 times. He had at least 8 children with his first wife, ROSE STOUGHTON. (Married in about 1650) They were: 1. RICHARD JR., 2. STEPHEN SR. (ETIENNE) 3. SOLOMON, 4. NICOLAS, 5. EXPERIENCE (ESPERANCE). 6. JUDITH, 7. MARTHA (ROSE#1), and 8. ANN. RICHARD SR. OTIS had at least one child with his second wife, ANNE-SHUAH STARBUCK (Widow of James Heard) (Married in 1676) JOHN, later baptized as "JEAN-BAPTISTE" dit L' ANGLAIS OTIS. RICHARD SR. OTIS had at least two children with his 3rd wife GRIZEL WARREN (Married in about 1686). 1. MARGARET (later baptized CHRISTINE), and 2. HANNAH. In about 1676, at Dover, New-Hampshire, located slightly northwest of Portsmouth, N. H. and very close to what is now the Maine border, (Maine did not become a State until March 1820 and in the 1600's, Maine was part of The Massachusetts Bay Colony) and also relatively close to what is now the Massachusetts border, a certain Major RICHARD WALDRON, Magistrate and Officer of the Militia was involved in dishonest dealings with the nearby Indians . (For a brief genealogy on Major Richard Sr. Waldron see the notes under Edward Jr. Starbuck.) There were several skirmishes and two military companies under the orders of WALDRON captured approximately 350 Abenaki indians. Many were imprisoned without reason, 10 were put to death by hanging, while many others were deported to Boston, or sold as slaves. The Abenaki Indians of what is now Maine, waited patiently for 13 years for their hour of revenge. Vengeance came after nightfall on the 27th & early morning hours of the 28th of June 1689, when four hundred Abenaki Indians attacked the peaceful village of Dover, N.H. (There were other indian tribes involved. i.e. Penacooks, Ossipees and Pequaioketts). Because of previous incidents with the indians, seven houses in the Village of Dover had become fortified garrisons enclosed by a wooden stockade fence.1. Major Richard Waldorn's 2. Richard Otis, 3. Peter Coffin, 4. His son Tristram Coffin, 5. the Gerrish Garrison, 6. The Heard Garrison, and 7. the Paine Garrison. The local residents felt safer sleeping at night in these fortified garrisons. Indian squaws pretending to be traders were granted access to some of the garrisons when they requested shelter for the night. As everyone slept, the squaws quietly opened the compound gates which allowed the 400 indians to begin what is known as the "Concheco Massacre" of 1689. (The Concheco river flows through Dover, N. H.) The OTIS family was not spared. RICHARD SR. was killed in his bed along with several of his children. His 2 year Old daughter, Hannah & his married son STEPHEN SR. were also killed. STEPHEN SR's sons, NATHANIEL and STEPHEN JR.were abducted by the indians and taken to Quebec and Stephen's daughter Rose (later baptized Francoise-Rose) was also abducted and taken to Quebec. It is believed that STEPHEN SR.'S wife, MARY PITMAN may have been killed also, as "Nowhere" does her name appear after that date. RICHARD SR.'s 3rd wife, GRIZEL WARREN, and their baby MARGARET (CHRISTINE) only a few months old were also taken prisoner. His daughters from his first marriage, ROSE#1(MARTHA), JUDITH, and EXPERIENCE (ESPERANCE), were also taken captive but were rescued within the next few days in Conway, N. H. as the indians were quickly fleeing the soldiers in their pursuit. JOHN (Jean-Baptiste), from Richard Sr's second marriage, was also taken captive. Major Richard Waldron was killed in the attack and his body was horribly mutilated as well as his son-in-law, Henry-Nathaniel Lee, married to Waldron's daughter Esther. William Horne, husband of Elizabeth Clough was also murdered. Others killed in this massacre were Robert Evans, Joseph Dug, Joseph Duncan, Daniel Lunt, Joseph Saunders, Joseph Buss, Willam Buss, Willliam Arms and Mary Paul, widow of Thomas Hanson & Elizabeth Boyce wife of Tobias Hanson and Daughter in law of Mary Paul. It is said that 23 inhabitants were killed and 29 were taken captive. A complete list of all those killed in the massacre does not exist. So far I have been able to locate 17 of the 23 and I continue to search for the others. Here is an alphabetical List of those Killed. 1. Arms, William 2. Boyce, Elizabeth (Wife of Tobias Hanson) 3.Buss, Joseph 4. Buss, William (Joseph & William Buss are sons of Joseph Buss & Elizabeth Jones M 21 Dec 1671 in Concord, Mass. 5. Duncan, Joseph 6. Dug, Joseph 7. Evans, Robert 8. Ham, William (Husband of Elizabeth Clough) 9. Lee, Henry-Nathaniel ( Son in Law of Major Waldron married to Esther Waldron) 10. Lunt, Daniel ( 11. Otis, Hannah 12 Otis, Richard Sr. 13. Otis, Stephen 14. Paul, Mary (Widow of Thomas Hanson) 15. Pitman, Mary (wife of Stephen Otis Probably killed as nowhere does her name appear after that date) 16. Saunders, Joseph 17. Waldron, Maj. Richard. It was common practice for the Abenaquis to flee with their captors in different parties and in different directions. Grizel and her child with one party, Experience, MARTHA (ROSE#1), & Judith, with another, Nathaniel and Stephen Jr with another, and Rose#2, (Francoise-Rose) and John (Jean-Baptiste) yet with another. Records show that GRIZEL WARREN resurfaced in Montreal in 1693, when she was baptized on May 9th, 1693, from GRIZEL WARREN to MARIE-MADELEINE OUARREN and her infant daughter MARGARET was baptized CHRISTINE. There is a marriage contract indicating GRIZEL WARREN married Phillippe Robitaille on Oct 26, 1693. ROSE (#2) & JOHN were taken to Quebec by way of the "Chaudiere" river. Rose #2 and John did not arrive in Quebec until the fall of that year and were horribly mistreated during that period. ROSE#2 was about 11 years old in 1689. She was purchased from the Indians by the French and was raised by a French family in Beauport, Quebec. She was baptized FRANCOISE-ROSE OTIS (OTISSE) . JOHN, who was only about 6 years old at the time of his abduction, was not so fortunate. He was brutally tortured by the indians. It is said that they cut off his ears and removed many of his fingernails. He was forced to live with the Indians for several years. Eventually John was purchased from an old indian squaw who had befriended him. On the 10th of April 1700, JOHN OTIS, now about 17 years old was baptized "JEAN-BAPTISTE" (dit) L' Anglais OTIS. (dit) Loosely translated means AKA (also known as) " L' Anglais" = "The Englishman" it occurs extensively in French surnames. STEPHEN SR. OTIS' son NATHANIEL was later baptized "Paul" and STEPHEN JR. was baptized "JOSEPH-MARIE". See JEAN-BAPTISTE's and FRANCOISE-ROSE's individual records for information about their marriages and children. ROSE#2 (FRANCOISE-ROSE), JOHN (JEAN-BAPTISTE), NATHANIEL (PAUL), STEPHEN JR. (JOSEPH-MARIE) All four chose to remain in Quebec during the period of repatriation of 1714, as most of them had already married and started families by that time. RICHARD SR's son NICHOLAS managed to survive the Concheco massacre, however he was killed by indians on 26 July, 1696 while returning home from church with his wife Joyce. She was abducted and later released. RICHARD SR.'s daughter EXPERIENCE (ESPERANCE) was also attacked by indians in 1696. She was scalped, lived long enough to give birth to a child, and died shortly thereafter, as she was never able to recover from her wounds. John Tuttle married to Judith Otis, daughter of Richard Sr., was also killed by Indians on May 7, 1712. I am proud to be a descendant of both RICHARD SR. and JOHN (JEAN-BAPTISTE) OTIS. And, FRANCOISE-ROSE we're proud to have you aboard as well. Francoise Rose's Grand-Daughter, Marie-Victoire Potvin, married Jean-Marie-Francois, Pradet dit St-Gelais 15 Jan 1755 at Baie St. Paul, P. Q. Jean-Marie-Francois is the son of Jean-Simon Pradet dit St-Gelais & Dit Laforge the ancestor of all the St. Gelais of North America . Parents: STEPHEN (1) OTIS and MRS. Margaret OTIS.
