Partridge, James (1700-1769)

From Partridge Nest

James Partridge was born on 08 Oct 1700 in Medfield, Massachusetts to John Partridge and Elizabeth Adams. He died on 09 Mar 1769. He married Keziah Bullard (daughter of Malachi Bullard and Bethia Fisher) on 27 Jan 1728/29 in Medway, Massachusetts. She was born on 02 Dec 1711 in Medway. She died on 25 Jul 1799 in Medway.

James Partridge was born in the Old Grant in 1700 and married Kezia Bullard, daughter of Malachi, in 1729. James resided in Medway. It is possible that he lived for a few years on the Bullard place, and in 1742, he bought the east half of his brother Jonathan's farm south of the Bullard holdings near Medway Village. His farm was 160 acres in total. In later years, a part of this land was occupied by Edward and Mary Blake at the southeast corner of Coffee and Holliston Streets. Their house stood on the site of James Partridge's dwelling, and one of the few large older barns in Medway still stands at the site. Mr. Partridge served in the French and Indian War. He died in 1779, and his widow died twenty years later, in 1799. He left a will.
