The Great Migration: William Lane.  Origin: Beaminster, Dorset. Migration: 1635 on the Hopewell (on 8 May 1635, "William Lane, his wife and son" were listed as passengers for Massachusetts Bay on the Hopewell of Weymouth [NGSQ 71:174]). First Residence: Dorchester.  Church Membership: Agnes Lane was admitted to Dorchester church about late 1638 or early 1639 [DChR3]. Education: On 7 Feb 1641[/2?], William Lane made his mark on a petition regarding "the maintenance of a school in Dorchester" [DTR 106]. His inventory included "one old Bible & another book" valued at 4s [SPR 2:154l].  Offices: His inventory included "one musket, sword & other things" valued at 1 [SPR 2:134].  Estate: On 2 Jan 1637/8, it is "ordered that Goodman Lane shal have one acre there [the little neck towards the old harbor, in Dorchester]" [DTR 28]. On 18 Mar 1637/8 "Will[iam] Lane" was granted three acres, two qarters and sixteen rods in the Neck and the same amont of land in the Cows" Pasture [DTR 31].  On 23 Jul 1642, "Brother Atherton and Brother Deyer are appoint to lay out one acre of ground for John Capen which was granted to William Lane in the lieu of the Calves' Pasture" [DTR 50]. On 23 Feb 1646 [/7?], "Wilyam Layne" was required to maintain four rods and eleven feet of fence around the Great Lots [DTR 76, 79].  In his will, dated 28 Feb 175-[/1?] and proved 6 Jul 1654, "W[illia[m Lane of Dorchester" bequeathed to "Thomas Rider my son-in-law & my daughter Elizabeth his wife my now dwelling house in Dorchester with all the outhousing, garden, orchard, homelot & all my lan & accommodations thereunto belonging ... except my great lot within the great lots of Dorchester within pale & without estimated twenty-four acres ... which I give unto my daughter Mary Long forever"; "such personal estate as I shall die possessed of shall by my faithful executors be after my funeral charges discharged thus distributed first unto my son Thomas Linckhorne of Hingham eight pounds in silver, also unto my son Nathaniell Baker of Hingham eight pounds in silver, also unto my son Andrew Lane of Hingham eight pounds in silver and the discharge of these legacies in silver aforesaid I appoint sixty pounds due unto me upon bill from Mr. John Glover, the remainder of the bill after thirty-two pounds in legacies (being twenty-eight) I give unto Mary Long my daughter" along with moveables, to "Fredome Kingley who hath been my faithfl servant twenty shillings", "Mary Long shall have liberty in my dwelling house after my decease, for the removal of her self & her goods from thence such time as my executors shall think convenient not exceeding six months"; "my loving bretheren Joseph Farnworth & John Wiswall" to be executors [SPR 1:99}.  The inventory of the estate of "William Lane of Dorchester," taken 5 July 1654, totalled 82 10s. 81/2d., with no real estate included [SPR 2:153-54]. On 23 May 1655, "Elizabeth Rider, the wife of Thomas Rider, of Boston, being left by her husband with five small children to maintain, & no means wherewith all to keep the, desiring liberty from this court to sell a house & land in Dorchester, which her father, W[illia]m Lane, gave to her & her children, in answer to her request, it is ordered, that the selectmen of the town of Boston shall & have power to dispose of the said house & land, either by sale, mortgage, or otherwise, as they shall judge meet, for the use of the petitioner, which this court doth hereby confirm & allow" [MBCR 3:389]. /// Birth: By about 1581 (based on estimated date of marriage). Death: Between 28 February 1650[/1?] (date of will) and 5 July 1654 (date of inventory) (and probably closer to the latter date). Marriage: By 1606 Agnes ____.  /// Children: i. Avis Lane, bp.

(This reverses our position in the Nathaniel Baker sketch, and assumes that Baker had only one wife, named Sarah. This change is based in part on the realization that the "Sarah Land" of the 1635 passenger list was really Sarah Lane.)  vii. Elizabeth Lane, b. say 1627; m. (1) by about 1647 Thomas Rider [Weymouth Hist 4:602; BTR 1:1126]; possibly m. (2) by an unknown date Henry Carnsey ("Elizabeth Ryder granddaughter to Goody Garnsey was baptized the 9 of June she then owned the covenant [16]95" [DChR 207]). /// Comments: On 20 Mar 1634/5 "George Land, hisr servant, 22 years," and "Sarah Land, his kinswoman, 18 years," were included in the passenger list of the Marygould, in the family of Angel Hollard, sailing for New England from Weymouth, Dorsetshire [Hotten 285]. No records appear in New England for these passengers under the surname Land. They are very likely children of William Lane.  // William Lane's wife is identified as Agnes Farnsworth in some secondary sources [Baset-Preston 169]. The only justification for this is the provision in William Lane's will that "my loving brethren Joseph Farnsworth & John Wiswall" be executors. Since both men are referred to as brothers, this almost certainly indicates a church relationship (although Farnsworth did marry William Lane's daughter Mary by 1656). Bibliographic Note: In 1897 James Hill Fitts published a genealogy of the descendants of William Lane [Lane Genealogies, Volume II, Part I (Exeter, NH, 1897)]. In 1989 Frederick J. Nicholson published records for the familites of William Lane and Thomas Lincoln from the parish register of Beaminster, Dorset [TAG 64:214-15, 65:106].

Genealogical and family history of the state of New Hampshire: a ..., Volume 4 I William Lane referred to above as of Hingham was probably an old man when he came to this country with his sons and is found at Dorchester as early as 1635. In 1637 he received several grants of land there amounting in all to eight acres. He was among the seventy one accepted inhabitants of the town in 1641 and on December 7 of that year he relinquished his grant to Thompson's Island for the purpose of a public school.The first public school in America was established at Dorchester in 1639 and William Lane with others relinquished their grants on Thompson's Island that it might be devoted to school purposes. He was evidently a man of means and a very good citizen who enjoyed the esteem of his fellows. His last years were spent in the home of his daughter Mary who was the widow of Joseph Long and he died in 1658. His will was dated December 28 1650. The inventory amounted to 82 10 shillings and &14 pence, and the daughter was made residuary legatee after paying bequests of 32. His children were Elizabeth, Mary, Annis, George, Sarah, and Andrew. II George elder son of William Lane was born in England and was one of the early planters of Hingham Massachusetts. He was among the thirty proprietors of that town and on September 18 1635 drew his house lot of five acres situated on the main street which is now North street. His lot is described as No 21 from the cove on the north side of the road to Fort Hill. In the next three divisions his land was increased to twenty acres besides thirteen acres in the common lands . He was a shoemaker by trade and was evidently prominent in the community as shown by his rating of six pounds six shillings and eight pence for the building of the new meeting house which rate was laid October 9 1680. Upon the assignment of seats in the new building he was assigned to seate under ye pulpit and his wife to a sitting in the fore seate for the women in the body of the meeting house. He died June 11,1688 and was survived nearly eight years by his widow who passed away March 26 1695. She was Sarah daughter of Walter and Mary Frye Harris and died in Dorchester Massachusetts. Walter Harris came to America in 1632 and was about twenty years at Weymouth Massachusetts and died in Dorchester November 6 1654. He was survived by his widow less than three months. The children of George and Sarah Lane were baptized in Hingham namely Sarah, Hannah, Josiah, Susanna, Elizabeth, John, Ebenezer, Mary, and Peter III John second son and fifth child of George and Sarah Harris Lane was born January 20 1648 in Hingham. He was known in that town as John Lane shoemaker to distinguish him from John Lane carpenter of the same town. He served as constable of Hingham in 1689. About 1604 he removed to Norton Massachusetts and settled on the boundary between that town and Attleboro. It is apparent that he owned land in Attleboro as he was taxed one pound for the town debt there in 1696 and was chosen grand juryman March 22 1697. In 1710 he was rated in Norton for building the first meeting house and was on a committee in 1711 to 1secure the incorporation of the precinct of Norton. He died in that town November 23, 1712. His gravestone gives his age as sixty two years which would make him born about 1650. He was married first June 18 1674 to Mehitable daughter of Jonathan and Jane Hobart. She was born in Hingham July 4 1651 and baptized when two weeks old. She was seated January 5 1682 in the fift scate next ye pew of the wife of John Lane shoemaker. She died February 15 1690 in Hingham in her thirty ninth year. John Lane married second about 1693 Sarah Briggs who was admitted to the church in Norton on profession of faith in 1718 and died November 12 1727 aged eighty three years. John Lane's children are recorded in Hingham, Rehobotb, Attleboro and Norton baptisms are in the Rehoboth church records. By his first wife there were Samuel, Priscilla, Mary, As,a and a child who was drowned September 16 1692. By Sarah Briggs he had Ephraim, John, Benjamin, Sarah, Meletiah and Elizabeth.

History of the town of Dorchester, Massachusetts: William Lane came to Dorchester about 1636. He was a man in humble life and died about 1654. He had sons Andrew and George who lived in Hingham. In his will he names sons Nathaniel Baker and Thomas Lincoln of Hingham. He had a daughter Mary Long probably the widow of Joseph Long and if so she afterwards married Joseph Farnsworth, but in his will he calls Joseph Farnsworth brother. There was a Sarah Lane baptized in Dorchester 28 3 1648, Elizabeth baptized in 1655 6 and married Thomas Rider. There were two children of Job Lane baptized in Dorchester early viz Rebekah 4 5 1658 and John 18 6 1661 being about a quarter of a year old by reason of their dwelling soe remote. The name of Lane is very ancient One came over to England with William the Conqueror in 1067.

Lane genealogies, Volume 2 By Jacob Chapman, James Hill Fitts: WILLIAM LANE1 was a resident of Dorchester Mass as early as 1635. Dorchester's early grants of land were certified by a committee consisting of the clergymen and deacons Noah Clap. Several grants were assigned to William Lane in 1637 Jan 2. It is ordered that Good Lane shall haue one acre the litde neck towards the harbor. March 18 he had two additional grants of between six and seven acres. Dorchester established the first public school in the country to be supported by taxation in 1639. The name of William Lane is on a list of seventy one inhabitants of Dorchester in 1641. William X Lane and other proprietors 7 th 12 mo 1641 relinquished mark their individual grants of Thompson's Island to the town of Dorchester for the maintenance of a Free School. This ancestor of a numerous posterity was a person of competent property, a freeman a virtuous and good citizen who evidently had the esteem and confidence of the people. His daughter Mary was the widow of Joseph Long with whom he lived several years and died apparently in 1654.
