Timothy Mather1

b. 1628, d. 14 January 1685
     Timothy Mather was born in 1628 at Liverpool, Lancastershire, England.2 He was the son of Rev. Richard Mather and Katherine Hoult. Timothy Mather married Catherine Elizabeth Atherton, daughter of Humphrey Atherton and Mary Wales, on 20 March 1650 at Dorchester, Suffolk Co., MA.2 Timothy Mather died on 14 January 1685 at Dorchester, Suffolk Co., MA.2

Timothy Mather was the only son of the emigrant that grew up to manhood who was not a preacher and is called the "Mather farmer" of the early time, and settled in the town with his father. His brothers Samuel and Nathaniel went back to Europe and were noted preachers. Eleazer was the first minister in Northampton, Mass., where he died the same year his father. Rev. Dr. Increase, settled in Boston. Timothy had a fall in has barn, which resulted in his death at the age of 56 years.


Maj. Gen. Humphrey Atherton, his father-in-law, was a distinguished man in the colony. They are buried in "Upham's Corner Cemetery." All persons in this country by the name of Mather who descend from the New England Mathers, can be traced directly to Timothy Mather, as the name ceases in all other lines with Samule Mather, the grandson of Rev. Dr. Cotton Mather. S. M. died in 1813.


Many Mathers in this country claim descent from Rev. Dr. Cotton Mather, but they are mistaken. There have been a number of Cotton Mathers later who have M. descendants.


The Mathers now are from the three grandsons of Rev. Richard, that settled in Connecticut, Rev. Samuel (of Windsor branch), Richard (of Lyme branch), or Atherton (of Suffield branch). 3
