are supposed to have descended. The third brother, as appears from an old family record, was a weaver by trade and settled in Newbury, Mass. He was the ancestor of the Harpers of N.E. John A.

The first Harriman in this country was Leonard of Rowley, Mass., who in 1639 with Rev. Ezekiel Rogers and twenty other families fled from ecclesiastical oppression in Yorkshire County, Eng., and came to N.E. He was then a very young man. Settling in Rowley, he was admitted freeman in 1647. He and his wife, Margaret, had three sons and three daus., John, the eldest son, b. in 1650, was sacrificed in King Philip's war. Two sons remained, Matthew and Jonathan, the one b. in 1652, the other in 1857. Matthew, at the age of 21, settled in Haverhill, Mass. The same year he m. Elizabeth Swan of that town. Their home was on Fishery River, a place now in the compact part of the city. They had a large family. Leonard Harriman, in his will in 1691, says, "To my oldest son, Matthew Harriman, I give and bequeath all my lands and meadows in ye bounds of Haverhill," and "to his son Matthew—my grandchild, I give my arms & ammunition." He gave Jonathan, his youngest son, his real estate in Rowley. The first Matthew Harriman had six sons and six daus. The first child, Matthew, Jr., m. in 1700, Martha Page; they had six sons and three daus. The eldest son, Joseph, m. in 1723, Lydia Eaton, and had Abigail, Reuben and Joseph.
