Our Boynton family ancestors were among the first who came to America from Yorkshire, England in 1638/1643, settling in Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts.
John Boynton, a tailor, had an acre and a half house lot on Bradford Street in Rowley, next to his brother William's lot in 1643. He married Ellen (Ellenor) Pell (there are several other spellings of her first name) of Boston.
Many of the early Rowley settlers originated from the East Riding of Yorkshire, including the Boynton families. Brothers John and William Boynton were from Knapton, Wintringham Parish, near East Heslerton.
First born son, Joseph Boynton, born about 1645, married Sarah Swan, daughter of Richard Swan, May 13, 1669. Joseph Boynton was a captain in Col. Francis Wainwright's First Regiment - Red - serving from 1706-1707, on the Port Royal Expedition. In addition, he served as town clerk and as a town representative for many years. He and his family moved to Groton, Mass., in 1715, several years before the death of his wife, Sarah, Feb. 27, 1718-19. After Sarah's death he returned to Rowley sometime before 1719-20, according to church records, and married Elizabeth Wood. Joseph Boynton died Dec. 16, 1730 in Rowley.
