Dr. Robert Ellis

Dr. Robert ELLIS is my first cousin ten times removed; we are related through his grandparents, my tenth great grandparents Robert Thomas and Susannah (SELBEE) BLOTT.  Robert is the youngest of seven children born to Dr. Edward and Sarah (BLOTT) ELLIS; he was born 24 September 1671 in Boston, Massachusetts.[1]  Robert married Elizabeth PEMBERTON 4 Jun 1698, officiated by Mr. James Allen.[2]  Robert and Elizabeth had six children:  Thomas, Robert, Samuel, Dr. Edward, Sarah and Elizabeth.  Robert was a surgeon; he served as the ships’ surgeon on the Siege of Port Royal on 17 September 1710.[3]  Robert prepared a will dated 23 February 1719, he died 7 April 1720.[4]

 

Research notes:[5]
“… Robert Ellis, in his will (No. 4312) dated Feb. 23, 1719, probated April 18, 1720, devises one third of his estate real and personal, to his wife Elizabeth during her life, to be disposed of at her death as she [Elizabeth] shall see fit, and the other two thirds to his six children, Edward, Thomas, Robert, Samuel, Sarah and Elizabeth. He makes his wife Elizabeth and his brother in law James Pemberton, executors of his will, giving them power to sell before any division of his estate is made, provided such division be no longer delayed than such time as his youngest child shall arrive at the age of 15 years. In his inventory, filed July 4, 1720, “2 houses at the south end of the town & the Land thereunto belonging fronting Newberry & Winter street,” were appraised at £800. Elizabeth Ellis, widow, conveys to Elizabeth and Abigail Phillips, spinsters, by deed of mortgage dated Oct. 15, 1720, recorded Lib. 35, fol. 28, these two houses and the land belonging to them, to secure payment of £300, the estate being described as 76f. on Newbury Street, 70f. in the rear and 220f. on Winter Street, and 220f. on the south, Thomas Bannister being the abutter on the south and west. This mortgage was discharged on the margin of the record Oct. 12, 1722, by Abigail Phillips and by James Townsend who had married Elizabeth Phillips. In August of the latter year the widow again mortgaged this estate (L. 36, f. 127) to Abigail Phillips to secure the payment of £400. By reason of the non-payment of said principal sum and the interest thereon, the mortgage, then the wife of John Erwin, mariner, recovered judgment for possession of said estate at the Inferior Court of Common Pleas, and possession was delivered to said Erwin, Dec. 23, 1727. The tenants at the that time were John Durant, smith, Joseph Simpson, clogmaker, and Anne Stone, retailer. The smithy was at the corner of Newbury and Winter Streets, and the rent was £8 per annum. Erwin and wife, by deed dated June 15, 1728, recorded L. 42, f 179, conveyed the estate, which they describe as 240f. deep, to Benjamin Pemberton, merchant. By letter of attorney, dated April 13, 1727 (Lib. 40, fol. 323), Edward Ellis and Thomas Ellis surgeons, Thomas Kilby, merchant, and Sarah his wife, empower ‘Our honoured mother Mrs. Elizabeth Ellis of Boston aforesd Widow and Shopkeeper,’ to sell and convey three fifths parts of the houses and lands on Newbury and Winter Streets, late the estate of their father Robert Ellis, surgeon, deceased, and they ratify and confirm mortgage made by her. In answer to her petition presented to the General Court, Jan. 24. 1727, she was authorized to make sale of the mortgaged premises. She then by deed, dated April 26, 1728 (L. 42, f. 98), conveyed the estate, described as 240 f. deep, to said Benjamin Pemberton. Benjamin Pemberton having thus acquired title to the Ellis estate, divided it into smaller parcels…”
