English people with the Knowles surname are known to be among the first settlers of New England having arrived as early as 1635 aboard the ship Susan and Ellen-. They were British subjects taking up homesteads in a colonial territory and dutifully signed an oath of allegiance to the King and the Church of England. Others of the name arrived soon after and included the Rev. John Knowles who settled in Plymouth in 1639; his son Richard was a master ship-builder. Another JOHN Knowles settled in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1650 and later purchased a home in Northampton, New Hampshire. [History of Knowles name developed by RBN based on an article appearing in the Lexington Herald, Lexington, KY, October 14, 1970, by Charles Guarino & Albert Seddon in their What's in a Name?- column]

William Bond purchased a farm, originally settled by Capt. William Jennison, who sold it to Rev. John Knowles. After the return of Mr. Knowles to England, and while he resided at Bristol, he executed a deed, dated Mar. 15 1654/5, conveying his estate in Watertown, for the sum of 200 pounds, to William Bond, in the possession of whose descendants it remained more than 170 years. It is now owned by John P. Cushing, Esq., of Watertown, whose taste and princely liberality have made it one of the most elegant residences in New England. (Old Plymouth Records)

Ruth Bowers, 15 Aug. 1639, in Camb.

RICHARD KNOWLES, of Plymouth and later of Eastham, in the Plymouth Colony, shipmaster. He was one of the surveyors of highways at Eastham in 1670 but probably did not outlive either his son John who was slain by Indians near Taunton 3 June 1675, or his son James , the inventory of whose estate was dated 10 Oct. 1678, the father's name not appearing in connection with their estates. He married 15 Aug 1639, Ruth Bower, daughter of George and Barbara Bower of Plymouth and sister of Rev. John Bower (Bowers in Harvard Quinquennial Catalogue), A.B. (Harvard, 1649), who died in 1687. The first appearance of Richard Knowles in the Plymouth records,was when he was haled into court at Plymouth for bringing a barke from Greenes Harbor [Winslow settlement in Marshfield was then called] on the Lords day.- The record of the judgment, 2 Jan. 1637/8, is brief: Discharged.- Nineteen months later he married a Plymouth girl, recently come thither from Scituate; and before his marriage he had been granted, 7 Jan. 1638/9, a garden place next to John Barnes.- This was on the Eele River side- of Plymouth, next to Duxbury. Whether George Bower or Richard Knowles came there first may be doubtful. The next spring he was granted a parcel of meadow ground at the head of George Bower ' s meadow by the Eele river head.- He must have planted crops on his own and the adjoining land, for in 1642 John Groome received a grant of a garden place next to his, on condition that he should build on it, but with the stipulation: for the present cropp Richard Knowles to have it except John Grooine compound with him for it.- In 1641 he was improved as a juryman. In 1643 his allowance from the keep of the towns cows- was one pottle, which represented a two-quart measure. The same year his name was listed among Plymouth men able to bear arms.On the removal of the Bower family to Cambridge, about 1643 (vide p. 288, footnote), the Knowleses apparently went there also. In the Cambridge records, under date of 4 Nov. 1646,' is the entry: Goodman Knowles for his swine divers times going without keeper is fined Is. 6d.- His son James was born 17 Nov. 1648, while the father was living in Cambridge. The birth was entered in the Suffolk County records, but was not printed as a Boston birth by the Boston record commissioners because it was sent in from Cambridge. In the Cambridge records the birth is entered as occurring in Boston.- But in Dec. 1649 Richard Knowles was back at Plymouth, for according to the Plymouth records of 1 Dec. 1649 he was prosecuted for denying passage of cattell in the highway.- While a navigator by occupation, Richard Knowles evidently carried on business on land also. His wife was prosecuted 7 Oct. 1641 for retailing of strong waters contrary to order- and for selling strong waters for five or six shillings a bottle that cost but 35s. the case,- and she was fined 10s., to be bestowed on the town's poor. At the meeting of the Council of War at Plymouth, 12 May 1653, when public apprehension was aroused of armed conflict with the Dutch of New Amsterdam, two barques were pressed for the service, one the vessel in which George Watson sailed, and himself to go as master, and also - the Barkqe in which Richard Knowles sayleth, with him the master thereof, was pressed for the same purpose, with John Younge and Willam Walker, and all things nessearie for theire use belonging to the said barkqe.-There is nothing in this record suggestive of residence in Eastham. It was the same month in which his daughter Mehitable was born, whose birth was-twice recorded at Plymouth, once with an error of a year (Plymouth Colony Records, vol. 8, p. 15) and once correctly, 20 May 1653 (ib., vol. 8, p. 30). Her birth was also entered in the Eastham records, at the same time with that of her sister Barbara, who was born 28 Sept. 1656. Richard Knowles was not one of the, first company to go out to the settlement which was to be the future home of his family. On 1 Oct. 1651 he was explicitly of the town of Plymouth.- His name first appears at Eastham on 13 May 1654, in a record of a town grant of two acres of meadow at the head of Little Namskaket- and a year later, in a town meeting, 22 May 1655, all the settlers were by vote divided into groups of five, and every group of five men amongst them was to keep a bull. Richard Knowles headed one group, which included, besides himself, Joseph Rogers, George Crisp, Thomas Roberts, and Richard Booshop. These must have been his nearer neighbors at that time. The first town book has an undated List of the mens names of the Towne,- revised by crossing off and adding names during a period of years. About half way down this list are the names of John Bangs, Steaven Atwood, Richard Knowles, John Doane, and Thomas Williams.Whether Richard Knowles made trans-Atlantic voyages or traded with the West Indies is not known, but it is more likely that his occupation was that of so many others, and that he went on trading voyages up and down the coast. The probate papers of a Boston merchant, Joshua Foote, in 1655, show Richard Knowles as one of his customers for goods. His elections to minor town offices at Eastham prove his retirement from the sea in later life. In 1667 he twice served on coroner's juries. In 1669 Richard Knowles and William Walker were elected surveyors of highways, and in the next year Richard Knowles and Samuel Freeman were elected to the same office.The records of the Eastham town meetings contain several references to the land of Richard Knowles and his sons John and Samuel. In 1667 is the entry: (FTM CD#171, The Knowles Family of Eastham, MA by Charles Thornton Libby, Esq., of Portland, ME)

(Online) m 3Joseph Atwood - Mercy & Apphia were twins and must have had a double wedding according to the dates. John was slain by Indians near Taunton 3 June 1675.

JOHN KNOWLES The earliest appearance of the name of this John Knowles may have been while he was still a minor. In the court held 3 March 1662/63 Ephraim Doane, Thomas Ridman, John Knowles, and John Wilson were tried and were fined 25s each for trading of liquors with the Indians at Cape Cod. In the same court Ephraim Doane and John Knowles were bound over under heavy bonds, pending investigations into the circumstances of the death of Josiah, the Indian sachem at Eastham. This matter was dropped. Soon after his marriage his name appears at the head of a cattle page, the entry reading: John Knowles 1 mare colt 4 Aug. 1671.- His earmark was transferred to his grandson, Willard Knowles, 28 June 1737. In June 1675 Taunton suffered an attack by Indians, in which the houses of James Walker and John Tisdell were burned and later was killed. At the same time two soldiers from Eastham, who were on duty there, were killed. Capt. John Freeman, whose daughter Samuel Knowles afterwards married, was in command of the Barnstable County company, and in his report to Governor Winslow, under date of Taunton, 3 June 1675, said: This morning three of our men are slain close by one of our courts of guard, (two of them, Samuel Atkins and John Knowles, of Eastham); houses are burned in our sight; our men are picked off at every bush.-Three Indians (Timothy Jacked, Nassamaquat, & Pompacanshe) were tried, 6 March 1676/77, for murder of John Knowles, John Tisdell, Sr., and Samuel Atkins. The jury found grounds of suspicion against two and aquitted one, but all three were sold into slavery as prisoners of war.- The sum of 10 pounds was presented by the Colony to Apthya widow of John Knowles lately slain in the service.- In 1676 Lieut. Jonathan Sparrow and Jonathan Bangs were delegated by the Court to assist the young window in settleing her husband' affairs.(The Knowles Of Easham, Ma. by Charles Thornton Libby, Esq., of Portland, ME, FTM CD #171)
