History of Hingham: Bates, Clement, aged 40 years with Anna his wife, who also was 40 years of age, and five children embarked at London for New England April 6, 1635, in the ship "Elizabeth," of which William Stagg was master. he came to Hingham about the time Rev. Peter Hobart and his followers arrived, and on the 18th of September 1635 received a grant of land on Town (South) Street. This lot contained five acres and was bounded on the NE by George Russell and SW by Thomas Johnson. It was the fifth in number from Bachelor (Main) Street and has been in possession of the descendants of the original grantee for nearly two and a half centuries. In 1883 the estate, including the ancient dwelling house formerly known as the "Anchor Tavern," was sold to the owners of the land adjoining. A portion of the estate, however, has since been repurchased; and on the spot where the old house stood a dwelling of modern style has been erected, which is occupied by a descendant. /P/ The name Bate was a common one in England for nearly two centuries before the Puritans took their departure for New England, and the ancestors of Clement are traceable for five generations prior to that period; thus, Thomas Bate of Lydd, Parish of All Hallows, died in 1485, leaving a son John, who died in 1522. John (Thomas) had a son Andrew who died at Lynn in 1533, leaving four sons. Andrew  (John  Thomas ) had a son John  of Lydd who died there in 1580, leaving three sons, one of whom, James , who died at Lydd in 1614, was the father of Clement of Hingham MA and also of Edward, who settled at Wey. MA and James of Dor MA. Anna, wife of Clement, died in Hingham 1 October 1669 --t 74 years. Clement died 17 September 1671, --t 76 years. In his will dated at Hingham 12 October 1669, gives to eldest son James, "my house lot next adjoining to my son Joseph containing four acres which was given unto me by the town. To sons Joseph and Benjamin, land and other valuables. To son Samuel, my now dwelling house with the lot of five acres which the house stands upon. Also all my household stuff to my four sons," etc. The children of Clement and Anna Bates were

Bates, bears and Bunker Hill with a correction or two: In the History of the town of Hingham Mass published by the Town 1893 the following pedigree of Bates is given with the statement that it is traceable for five generations prior to the advent of the Puritans from England. Thomas Bate of Lydd Parish of All Hallows died 1485 leaving, John Bate who died 1522, leaving Andrew Bate of Lydd died 1533, leaving John Bate of Lydd died 1580, leaving James Bate of Lydd who died 1614. He was father of three sons who emigrated to New England namely 1 Clement Bate of Hingham Mass, 2 Edward Bate of Wey Mass, 3 James Bate of Dorr Mass with whom the American families commence their history. With Clement Bates born at Lydd 1595 who at the age of 40 embarked at London April 6th 1635 with his wife Anna and five children in the ship Elizabeth William Stagg Master the history of this branch of the family is transferred to this country. On their arrival here they immediately located at Hingham about thirteen miles south of Boston, and on the 18th of September a tract of land containing about five acres was granted to Clement which has remained in possession of his descendants for two and three quarters centuries. The town of Hingham whose records are also extraordinarily complete has published its History in four volumes of which two are devoted to the genealogies of its early settlers in which that of Bates receives full and ample treatment thus luckily the extraordinary good fortune of the earlier records of Lydd are continued in the History of Hingham, and the family of Bates has been spared the difficulty inaccuracy and expense of preserving to posterity their succeeding generations. Clement died 17th September 1671 aged 76. He had two brothers, Edward who settled at Wey Mass and James who settled at Dorr Mass both leaving descendants. Clement's wife Anna died at Hingham 1st October 1669 aged 74. They had six children; one boy was drowned when 16 years of age the others were Rachael a daughter born 1627 and James born 1621, Joseph born 1630, Benjamin born 1633, and Samuel born 1639 all of whom married and left descendants which have been traced to present times. With the voluminous genealogies proceeding from these progenitors we have nothing to do but will continue the line so far only as it belongs to the particular branch in which we are interested. Joseph the second son was born in England 1630, he was therefore a little boy when the great voyage was made across the ocean that would in these days with such vessels as sailed the seas then terrify us beyond expression. He grew up to manhood and married in 1659 Esther daughter of William Hilliard. The records give them three sons Joseph, Caleb, and Joshua. Joseph the father died in 1706 and his wife three years later.
The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Volume 45; Volume 51: The History of Hingham states that Edward Bate of Weymouth was a brother of James Bate of Dorchester and Clement Bate of Hingham, but this is doubtful as the Edward mentioned in their father's will probably died in 1616. 1 JOHN BATE jurate Lidd d between 31 July and 17 Sept 1522 mar and had Thomas, 2 Andrew d 1533. 2 ANDREW BATE d abt 22 Feb 1532-3, mar and had Joan mar James Robyns jun.

FamilySearch.org: 6 September 2014 The English home of our Bate ancestors was Lydd, a town on the southeast shore in the county of Kent, about sixty miles southeast of London. Lydd was a flourishing market town several centuries ago, but at the present time is known only as a popular summer seaside resort. The most prominent object in the town is the ancient stone church of All Saints. The date of its erection is not known. A portion of its walls is said to date back to the period of Roman occupation of Britain. From early in the fifteenth century numerous changes and additions to it have been made. In the floor of the aisles of the church are numerous memorial slabs, several of them inscribed to members of the Bate family, who are probably buried beneath them. On the earliest record book of Lydd, known as the Chamberlain's Account Book, William Bate is mentioned on the third page, under date of August 17, 1429, as a Jurat (or Alderman) of the town. The volume of Churchwarden's Accounts begins in 1520, and on the second page mention is made of “Andrew Batys”. These volumes contain many items of interest relating to the history of the town and church, including frequent Bate references. The Church Register begins in 1538 and is complete except for the loss of three leaves. It contains many entries, in Latin and not too legible handwriting, of baptisms, marriages and burials of members of the Bate family. There are also a number of wills of members of our branch of the family among the records of the Prerogative Court at Canterbury. There is no one by the name of Bate now living in Lydd. Carved on several of the memorial stones to members of the Bate family in the church at Lydd is the family coat of arms. Its simplicity indicates that it was an early grant, probably dating back to a time earlier than the ancestral line that we are able to establish. These arms are blazoned “Sable, a fess between three dexter hands couped bendways argent”. (pp. 6-7) John Bate of Lydd , county Kent, England, jurat, in his will, dated July 31 and proved Sept. 17, 1522, names his sons Thomas and Andrew as executors, mentions the wife of Andrew and Joan the daughter of Andrew. England was a Catholic country at this time and the will provides bequests for the high altar, for the reparation of the church, to a priest to sing for his soul, to poor people for the health of his soul for five years next after his death, for a dirge for his soul, for four masses, one each of “Our Lady,” of the Trinity, of the Holy Ghost and of Requiem, and as many at his month's day and twelve month's day, and provides payment for the priests for singing these masses. The pedigree might have been carried back further but for the fact that two individuals each had a son John Bate, either of whom might be this John. [Note by Jeanene W. Scott: “3 children.”] (p. 9) John of Lydd , jurat, married (1) Oct. 28, 1546, Mildred Ward, who was buried June 2, 1577; married (2) June 15, 1579, Mary Bennett. His will dated March 1, 1579/80, and proved May 13, 1580, gives to the poor men's box, and to the poor to be distributed on the day of his burial, gives to his three sons lands, tenements, cattle and goods, mentions his leased lands which he has let out, gives to his wife £20 money and household furnishings which he names and her rings and jewels. Mention is made of the loft over the shop, of the hall and the parlor, and of two tables, two bedsteds, a chair, a chest, a cupboard, a stupponet (sauce pan), two kettles, a small brass pan, two platters, two pewter dishes and two fruit dishes. His three sons are named as executors and John Hebblethwaite and William Crouche, jurat, overseers of the will. His estate inventoried £71.12s.4d. [Note by Jeanene W. Scott: “4 children.”] (pp. 10-11) James of Lydd , yeoman, buried March 2, 1613/14; married June 5, 1580, Mary Martine. His will dated Feb. 27, and proved March 31, 1613/14, gives his wife the use of certain lands; gives Robert, son of his deceased son, Robert, £20; gives his two daughters each £20 and certain lands; and small bequests to the children of his son James. Then, after giving certain lands to his son James, he divides his remaining lands equally between his four other sons, each son's portion apparently being valued at £100. He names his wife Mary executrix and his cousins Clement Bate and Thomas Bate, jurats, of Lydd (sons of his uncle Thomas Bate), overseers of his will. [Note by Jeanene W. Scott: “13 children.”] (p. 11) Source: Unknown, though title may be Bate Family. Note that there is a book in the BYU library (Call No. 929.242 A1, no. 309 in the British Book area) entitled, Bate Family: baptisms, marriages, and burials, 1542-1635, from the parish of Lydd, Kent, England, and Bate memorials from Lydd Church, Garden Grove, CA: E. Homewood, [19--]. It is also evidently on microfilm in Salt Lake City. [Proofed against copy of original: filename: bate.2] Editor’s note: It’s not clear how this individual is related to Kenneth L. Scott, yet the fact that Jeanene specifically requested that he be included in this excerpt would seem to indicate that he must be relevant in some way. See JOHN BATES, no. 8, ch. 31. This individual is probably the same as JOHN BATES, no. 4, ch. 31, who is shown on the pedigree as having married Mary Martine on June 6, 1580.
