    • TIRRELL

      This name is found with many spellings in the records, such as: Turrell. Tyrrell, Terrall. Thurrill, Thurl and many other forms. The earliest in America of whom record is found was Rodger Tirrell, who was one of the original settlers of Milford, Massachusetts, in 1639. John Tirrell. who was a son of Rodger, was propounded for freeman in 1669, being at that time a seaman living in New London, Connecticut.

      (I) William Tirrell was married January 29, 1635, by Governor Bellingham. to Rebecca Simpkins, daughter of Captain Nicholas Simpkins. He lived in Boston previous to 1672. in which year he removed to Weymouth, Massachusetts. His children were : Rebecca, William. Mary and Gideon.

      (II) William (2), elder son and second child cf William (1) and Rebecca (Simpkins) Tirrell, was born March 16, 1657, in Boston, and was married there to Abigail Pratt, daughter of Thomas Pratt. Their children were: William, Samuel. Rebecca. Gideon, Mary, Rachel and Hannah.

      (III) Gideon, third son and fourth child of William (2) and Abigail (Pratt) Tirrell, was born June 14, 1694. in Weymouth. and lived for a time in Abington, Massachusetts. He was subsequently a resident of Kingston and Londonderry, New Hampshire.

      He married Ruth Dir (probably Dyer), and their children included Edith, John and Mary, born in Abington. Others unknown were born in Kingston, among whom were: Ruth and Abigail. The former married John Kezar. of Hampstead, and the latter William Rogers.

      (IIl) Jesse Tirrell. supposed to have been a son of Gideon and Edith (Dyer) Tirrell (spelled in Hampstead records Thurril and Thurle). married Mary Johnson, of Hampstead, born October 1, 1744, in that town, daughter of Stephen (2) Johnson.

      Their chidren were: Molly. John, Sarah and Jesse. The town records of Hampstead show the birth of the first three. The baptism of the fourth is shown in the records of Hampstead Church, his mother being a widow at that time. (IV) Jesse (2), youngest child of Jesse (1) and Mary (Johnson) Tirrell, was baptized October 29, 1769, at which time his elder sister was also baptized ; perhaps the other two children were not then living.

      Soon after attaining manhood he settled in Goffstown, New Hampshire, where he passed nearly all of his adult life. He was married, February 25. 1794, by Rev. John Kelly, of Goffstown, to Jane Plummer. of Londonderry. Their children were: Johnston, Joseph, Hiram, Mary, Jesse and Sarah Jane. (V) Hiram, third son and child of Jesse (2) and Jane (Plummer) Tirrell, was born July 21, 1807, in Goffstown, in which town he made his home throughout his life. He purchased a farm on which he resided. and engaged in farming and lumbering with considerable success, and invested his surplus means in real estate, which he handled with profit to himself. He was a prominent citizen of the town, acted in the management of its affairs and was a captain of the local militia. Politically he was a Republican, and affiliated in religious matters with the Baptists
