Partridge Lake, Littleton, New Hampshire

Partridge Pond has been nearly surrounded with cottages which are the summer houses of many people of this town and of Lisbon. More than two hundred years ago Nathaniel Partridge settled on what is now known as the Hard place, just over the line in Lyman.

William Partridge of Medfield, Mass., and His Descendants

In 1909 George Homer Partridge (GHP) published his second genealogy of the Partridge family in the New England Historical and Genealogical Society Register and titled it William Partridge of Medfield, Mass., and His Descendants. This genealogy was published in the January 1909 edition of NEHGS Register (vol. LXIII) pages 90-95. This same genealogy was subsequently published in 1909 by the Press of David Clapp & Son in Boston, Massachusetts in book format, being an exact reprint of the original article.

Disputed Marriages of Rachel Partridge (1669-1717)

It became quite obvious as I researched the Partridge-Daniell connections in Medfield, that past genealogists had gotten a kinship determination incorrect. This article is an attempt to right their wrong, and as a result, correct what you may have recorded in your family tree.

The Four Josiah Partridge’s

It starts with Josiah Partridge, son of Nathaniel Partridge and Lydia Wright of Medfield, Massachusetts. Nathaniel was the eldest son of William Partridge and Sarah Colburn of Medfield, Massachusetts. Josiah was the 9th of 13 children born to his parents, and his descent is the easiest to prove of the four Josiah’s!

A Study into the Ancestry of John, William, and Margery Partridge of Medfield, MA

Information submitted by Betty Harris, Priscilla McElvein and Dennis Partridge The ancestry of the Medfield Partridge’s has been listed incorrectly over the years (including by me). Too often it seems that good honorable researchers are simply replicating what has been listed as the ancestry of a person instead of actually conducting the research for themselves. As with the ancestry of George Partridge this appears to have happened with this branch of the family as well. The most popular ancestry reported has come from the publication of the Partridge Genealogy by George H. Partridge. Page 3 states the following: It may …

Captain John Partridge of Navestock, England

Captain John Partridge was first indicated as a possible father of the Medfield, Mass. Branch of the Partridge family by the NEGHS back in 1903, and privately printed in 1904 in the Partridge Genealogy, by George H. Partridge: It may be well, however, for the benefit of those who desire to extend their researches to England, to call attention to the fact that in the Visitation of Essex [1]Harl. Soc.
