New England families, genealogical and memorial: a record of the ..., Volume 2: Charles Glidden the American immigrant was born in England about 1630 and came from Glidden Hampshire England to America and settled at Portsmouth New Hampshire in 1656. He took the oath of fidelity in 1665 and made the oath of allegiance at Exeter New Hampshire in 1672. It is presumable that he had previously lived in Boston as the Boston records show the births of the following children - Sarah born October 6 1661, Susanna baptized October 16 1661, Joshua, Joseph born about 1668 died November 24 1700. The Boston records show the mother of Susanna to have been Emma. He settled in that part of Exeter which became Newmarket where he purchased land and received a grant in 1697. In 1687 he was a member of the Train Band and at a general town meeting held March 8 1666 in Portsmouth he was among those who subscribed to the support of the minister Mr Moody. The records show that he sold one hundred acres of land in 1702 but information about him is very meager. He left a large family and it is generally accepted as a fact that Richard Glidden of Exeter was his son. II Richard son of Charles Glidden was born about 1660 died October 25 1728, His will made in 1727 was proved December 4 1728. He signed the church covenant at Exeter September 14 1698. He married in 1687 Sarah born February 25 1667 daughter of John and Elizabeth Treworge Gilman who died after 1728 see Gilman III. Children Richard married Elizabeth Smart, Andrew, Joseph married first Mary Smart and second about 1735 Dorcas widow of Arthur Bennett, Charles died before 1727, Benjamin married Mary Wedgewood before 1727, Jonathan, Josiah non compos, John mentioned below, Susanna married a Mr Woodman, Sarah married about 1730 Colonel Joseph Smith, Elizabeth. By the will the sons Andrew and Joseph received each fifty five acres of land and the children of his deceased son Charles received five pounds in money, the eldest son Richard received one half of the homestead, his sons Benjamin and Jonathan fifty acres in the town commons, the son Josiah was to receive a comfortable maintenance during life, one half of the homestead went to his son John, and his daughters Susanna Woodman and Sarah and Elizabeth Glidden each received ten pounds. The wife Sarah received all personal effects and maintenance for life. III John presumably the eighth son of Richard and Sarah Gilman Glidden born probably about 1705 is undoubtedly the John Glidden who settled in Deerfield New Hampshire where he with others signed a petition April 7 1774 to have the southern part of the town set off as a new parish. A John Glidden married at Kensington January 12 1747 Ann Sanborn. He had sons 1 Jonathan born 1717 20 died 1820 signed the petition for the town of Deerfield June 17 1765 and was surveyor of highways in that town, 2 Simeon settled in Canada, 3 Joseph settled in Barre Vermont, 4 Richard mentioned below, 5 Jeremiah a Quaker settled at Unity New Hampshire, 6 Andrew settled in Claremont New Hampshire. The last three were also among the signers of the petition for the town of Deerfield in 1765. Gideon of Deerfield may have been also a son of John Glidden and was a soldier of the revolutionary war.
