John Alvord1

b. 12 August 1649, d. 17 March 1727
     John Alvord was born on 12 August 1649 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Alexander Alvord and Mary Vore.2 John Alvord married Abigail Phelps, daughter of Deacon Nathaniel Phelps and Elizabeth (?), at Northampton, Hampshire Co., MA; no children.1 John Alvord died on 17 March 1727 at Northampton, Hampshire Co., MA, at age 77.1

John "Aluard" signed "Petition against Imposts" Nov. 4, 1668. Oath of Allegiance was given to Jno. Alvord at Northampton, Mass., Feb. 8, 1678.


At a legal Town meeting in Northampton, Mass., July 23, 1675, "The Town granted John Alvord a lot of six acres for a home lot in some convenient place, we say, where it may not prejudice the Town, provided he dwell in the Town for years and build on that or some other and possess it four years."


In his will, dated April 18, 1721, probated Dec. 8, 1727, he bequeathed all his property to his widow, Abigail Alvord.


Mrs. Alvord was considered a lady of dignity.


"Abigail Alvord, wife to John Alvord of Northampton, being presented by the Grand Jury, to this Court, for wearing silk contrary to law & it being found the witnesses were sometimes mistaken, she was dismissed." (Court Rec. March 27, 1676.)


There were twenty-two others brought into court at the same time. They were charged with "wearing silk in a flaunting manner, wearing long hair and other extravagances contrary to honest and sober order and demeanor not becoming a wilderness state, at least the profession of Christianity and religion."


She conveyed her property to her nephew Joseph Alvord.


Abstract of an original deed, now in the possession of a descendant of Joseph Alvord:


"Abigail Alvord relict of John Alvord dec. of own free will, as also upon the account of ye love and affection I have unto my kingsman Joseph Alvord, son unto Ebenezer Alvord as alsoe for and upon ye Consideration of my sd kingsman Joseph Alvord taking care of mee and my estate during my natural Life; therefore I ye sd Abigail Alvord having by my sd husband John Alvord's last will all his estate of all sorts both Real & Personal; now upon ye considerations aforesaid of ye sd Abigail Alvord; doe for myself &c. give unto my sd kingsman all ye whole of my sd both Real & Personal, descending or given to me by said husbands will, for belonging to mee, or descending to me, by any other ways or means.


"Provided this conveyance is to be understood with this limitation, that it is not to take effect till after my decease; only my sd kingsman is to use and improve my estate out of which I am to have a Comfortable and honorable maintenance according to my degree, which if my said kingsman should fail in, then I doe reserve to myself a Liberty, to Lease out any of my Real Estate or sell any of my personal estate for my support and maintenance. Signed Jan. 8, 1727-8"


Mrs. Alvord died at the house of Joseph Alvord. The town records say: "1756, Aug. 26, Died, the aged Wido Abigail Alvord, said to be about one hundred and two years, said to have been born in the same year this town was first planted."


Savage says: "She was the oldest person that ever died in Northamption; but exact truth, after the correction of old style, makes her age 101 years, 4 months and 11 days." She attended church in three meeting houses, through the ministry of Mr. Stoddard, Mr. Edwards, and part of that of Mr. Hooker. 3

Alvord or Alford


Samuel Morgan Alvord explains in his genealogy that the Alvord spelling seems to have been adopted after his removal to Northampton, Mass. He uses it exclusively in his book, and we will honor that here for descendants of Alexander.


Morgan Alvord concludes that Alexander, Benedict and Joanna were siblings and that they came to America probably as minors and perhaps as orphans about the years 1636-40.

Oath of allegiance was given to Thomas Alvord at Northampton, Mass., Feb. 8, 1678. Among the early grants of land upon the town records of Northampton, Mass., the town grants to Thomas Alvord:


"In prim-s a home Lot which is thus bounded; on the south on Mr. Hawleys land being in length 26 rods, bounded on the commons, on the north butting on the Round Hill on the (sequestered land), westerly in breadth at this end 16 rods and 5 1/2 feet, being four acres more or less."

Thomas Alvord was a tailor. His homestead No. 26 was first assigned to William Smead in 1676 and was in the family of Thomas Alvord until 1725. It was the Dr. Hunt place. His widow married 1690 Samuel King (son of John), whom she outlived, and Nov. 26, 1702, married Deliverance Bridgeman. In 1724-5, when her son Thomas Alvord sold the homestead, she, with her husband, Deliverance Bridgeman, relinquished their right. He father, Jophn Taylor, was killed in the present limits of Easthampton, while going to the rescue of those captured in the "Pascommuck Massacre."


Thomas Alvord (son of the above) of Northampton, in consideration of thirty pounds conveyed to Samuel Fairfield of Northampton:


"A certain homestead in Northampton with the buildings thereon; containing by estimation half an acre be it more or less, butted and bounded, Northerly on the street; Westerly on the lane running to the Mill River; Easterly on the homestead of Moses Lymons, running from front to rear about fifteen rods, and lying in a triangular form etc.
"Jan 26, 1724-5 Thomas Alvord and seal.
"I, Deliverance Bridgeman, and Joanna my wife, do relinquish our right and title to Sam-l fairfield of the within mentioned homestead as witness o-r hands ye twenty nigth January 1724/5
Deliverance Bridgman
Joanna Bridgman"


Thomas Alvord fought under Capt. Wm. Turner in the Falls Fight, May 19, 1676. For this service his son Thomas, as his eldest male heir, received from the General Court of Mass. in 1734 a grant of land in Fallstown (now Bernardston), Mass.


The following incident was a tradition in the family of John Alvord, father of Coridon A. Alvord, and is taken from a letter, written by David S. Alvord to his brother and he gives the story as his mother remembered it:


In the attack upon Deerfield he (Thomas Alvord) was a Capt. and acted very heroically in defending against the Indians. After the garrison was nearly famished for water, he went out to a well where he was much exposed and continued to draw water for the garrison until the well-pole was shot off above his hands." (The foregoing may refer to Thoams, Jr.)


An inventory of the estate of Thomas Alvord was presented by Lt. John Taylor, Aug. 10, 1688. It shows a house an dland valued at 50£, pasture land over the river 18£, 2 cows, horse, swine, shears, pressing-iron, lamp, smoothing iron, saddle and bridle, curtains and bedding, slice tongs, hand irons, gun, cutlass, hoes, axes, pewter and brass, 4 chairs and sushion, table, chest, boxes, warming-pan, grid-iron, candlesticks, etc.

Samuel King, who had married the widow, prayed the court that he might have use of the whole estate, that he might bring up the children. Estate was valued at 155£. He was granted the use of the real estate and --£ in moveables for bringing up the three children.
