Most of the history and events recorded in the following pages relating to the first three generations, was obtained from a manuscript written by Moses Hatch of Danburg, Ct. in May, 1816, for the benefit of his own children. From that record it appears that there were then living in Kent, Ct., one Jethro Hatch (a grandson of Benjamin Hatch hereafter named) in the 94th year of his age. Moses Hatch took his father, then in his 81st year, and paid this venerable Jethro Hatch a visit for the purpose of taking down from mouths a history of his paternal ancestors. Notwithstanding their advanced age their memory was quite perfect and so accurate was their recollection of events and dates, that when he came to refer afterwards to other papers and documents he never discovered a single mistake even to a date.
As to our ancestry it may be gratifying to some to learn that we are descended from one of the New England Puritans, through a line of Ancestors who without exception were virtuous men. Although none of them could boast of immense wealth, yet none were very poor; none were ever very mush distinguished in life, yet all were beloved and respected by their neighbors and the community; all lived to an advanced age and all have been uniformly Puritan in principle.
At the time of the first settlement of New England, those by the name of Hatch were said to be very numerous in the Mother Country, but from the fact that we are unable to collect any information earlier than about the beginning of the 16th Century, we may thoroughly conclude that they were generally ranked among the middle class of society; the narrators above mentioned recollect having heard the name of one or two mentioned, in their boyhood, who were in some public office in England. Joseph Hatch emigrated from England to this country shortly after the Plymouth Company. Jethro Hatch thought he came with the next company of emigrants that settled in Massachusetts and of course he might have arrived in the year 1626, but probably not for several years afterwards. In what part of England Joseph Hatch was born and lived previously to emigrating I have never learned, not at what age he left, but probably he was young, although he was married. His wife was a native of Wales and in all probability was a farmers daughter. Joseph was bred a mechanic, a tailor by trade. The motives that induced our ancestors to the land of their nativity may be easily conjectured, as the nonconformity of the Puritans subjected them to many grievous vexations in their native country.
Sometime after his arrival Joseph Hatch purchased of the Indians the whole of the original township of Falmouth, situated on the Northeast part of Vineyard Sound, in Barnstable county, Mass. Here he settled, lived and died at an advanced age. Of the lands thus purchased by Joseph Hatch he afterwards sold one half; the remaining half I am told stands on record to his heirs at law, and as there is no evidence that they alienated it, it is more than probable that the only title, to the greater part of it at least, of those who have occupied it since, is acquired by possession.
Joseph Hatch left three sons - how many daughters is not known. The names of the sons arranged according to seniority were: Joseph, Benjamin, and Jonathan. From one or the other of these it is believed all of the name of Hatch in the United States has sprung, unless possibly a few within the past century have emigrated to this country; although there have been none to the writers knowledge. All of the three above named sons settled Falmouth. Joseph was born in 1652 and was a farmer and a man of considerable property. He left ten children; Joseph, Ichabod, Ebenezer, Barnabus, Lydia, Amy, Ruth, Joanna, Elizabeth and Rebecca. All of these children survived him fourteen years and many lived to old age. He died in 1736 at the age of 84. I shall be obligated to pass by his brothers Benjamin and Johnathan as I know but little of those two branches of the family, except some two or three facts - as for instance, Jethro Hatch who was living in Kent, Conn., in the year 1816 at the age of 94 was a grandson of Benjamin.
As the name Joseph was quite common in the family, to avoid confusion I will number them; 1st, Joseph who emigrated to this country; 2nd, Joseph the father of the aforementioned ten children; 3rd, Joseph, the oldest son of Joseph II who went to Tolland, Conn. He died at Falmouth at the age of 62 - went there probably on a visit and was not able to return.
Ichabod, his brother, also removed to Tolland where he lived and died. He was born October 12, 1691, and his wife Abigail Weeks was born January 1st, 1692. They had 8 children:
Zerviah Born October 5, 1715
Joseph " August 15, 1718 (according to one record 1717)
Judah " November 11, 1720
Justus " October 20, 1722
Abigail " March 27, 1725
David " September 24, 1726
Ruth " August 15, 1729
Ichabod " October 26, 1732
Ichabod, the father of these children, died at Falmouth (?).
Ebenezer, brother of the above mentioned, remained on the homestead at Falmouth and was a man of handsome estate for those early times. He lived a bachelor until he was 40 years old, then married a wife of 24 who bore him ten children. He died at the old mansion house in Falmouth.
Barnabus, the youngest brother (who was the grandfather of Moses Hatch), was born at Falmouth February 1704. He married Abigail Lassel; by her he had two sons and one daughter - Thomas, James and Lydia. In 1735 he married a second time, his wife being Phebe Cushman Spooner; by her he had one son, Nathaniel and five daughters, three of them died young. The survivors were Abigail and Elizabeth.
Barnabus Hatch toward the close of his life became a man in thriving circumstances; he erected the old farmhouse in 1765, which his son, Nathaniel occupied and repaired about 1815. He died October 25, 1781, in the 78th year of his age. His wife died May 31st 1790, age 87.
The following brief sketch is the principle part of what I have been able to collect concerning the daughters of Joseph II.
Lydia married a man by the name of Gifford, a Quaker.
Amy married a captain Delano of Tolland, Conn.- had 7 sons and several daughters, three of whom married men by the name of West, and one a Captain Noah Grant, who was supposed to have been killed by the Indians in the French War.
Ruth married Samuel Swift, the ancestor of the Swift family in Kent.
Joanna lived and died single.
Elizabeth married first a Mr. Skiff, the ancestor of the Skiff family in Kent by whom she had six children; and for her second husband a Mr.. Lassel, by whom she had one child.
Rebecca married a man by the name of Berry, the ancestor of the Berry family; they moved to Kent where she died.
I now proceed to give an account of the children of Barnabus.
Thomas was born in 1728, married Lydia Fuller and settled in Kent near his father. He had ten children (the Hatch number), eight of whom survived him, but only one lived in that state. Thomas Hatch died in 1776 in the 48th year of his age.
James Hatch died in his 20th year, unmarried.
Lydia also died unmarried.
Nathaniel, the first child by the second marriage, was born in Tolland, March 27, 1736. He was a man of uncommon strength, able to perform what is now considered labor for two. By the meritorious efforts of his mother who was a woman of good education, and his own diligence and perseverance he acquired more solid learning than many young men nowadays with far superior advantages. He attended school but three months, his instructor being Josiah Sherman, the father of honorable Roger M. Sherman. On May 22nd, 1776, he married Mary Cass, daughter of Moses Cass, a farmer of Warren. They had 9 children; three died in infancy. Of the remaining six, two were sons, namely; Moses and Barnabus. He died in 1821 in the 85th year of his age. His wife survived him 4 years.
Moses Hatch, son of Nathaniel just spoken of, was educated at Yale College studied the profession of law and settled in Danbury, Conn. He died September 20, 1820, at the age of 40. He left a wife and ten children - three sons and seven daughters; three of the daughters are dead. The oldest son died about 1842 at the age of 37, leaving a wife and two children. The youngest son has been a sailor for several years, and officer on a Whaling ship. One of the daughters married a man by the name of Wildman and resides in Danbury at her fathers old home.
Barnabus Hatch, son of Nathaniel , had nine children, concerning whom little is known. (Barnabus is living at the time this sketch was written.)
One daughter of Nathaniel Hatch , a Mrs. Belden, settled near Greenwich, New York.
We have now traced down one branch of the third generation, viz.,; Joseph III. I will now go back and take that of his brother, Ichabod.
His oldest son Joseph who will be called Joseph IV was born in Tolland August 15, 1718. He married Sarah Stearns, born in 1721; lived in Tolland until about 1770 when he bought in Alstead where he removed in about 1774. He had ten children (?). He was called Tolland Joseph III as there were living in Tolland at that time three by the name of Joseph, designated as Joseph, Joseph Jr., Joseph III. The first I suppose to be Uncle to Joseph III. The names of three of his children were Ruben, the eldest, Phinehas and Judah, the youngest. Joseph IV died March 6th 1802, with his son Judah age 85, and his wife Sarah died January 25, 1805, age 84.
Of the brothers of Joseph IV I can relate but little. Judah and Ichabod both died in the old French War in Cape Britton as they called it. Justus lived and died in Willington, Conn. He and Joseph were the only sons that had families. David was what they call a coaster and died in Maine. One of the three daughters married a Mr. Hover; and another (Abigail I think it was), a Mr. Gray. both lived and died Tolland, Conn.
I now pass to notice some of the immediate descendants of Joseph IV.
Ruben, his eldest son, born March 3, 1742, married Prudence Enton of Tolland, Conn. where he lived until he moved to Alstead in September, 1779. His father, Joseph gave him a portion of the land which he had purchased in Alstead. He died August 4th 1811, at the age of 69. His wife, Prudence, died September 16th 1824.

Levina married Richard Beckwith
Azel inherited is fathers farm at Alstead, married Rhoda Williams and had 9 sons and 3 daughters, ten of whom are now living I suppose. For his second wife he married in 1836 the widow Abigail Seaverens and is now living at the center of Alstead, his son Azel Jr. occupying his farm.

(Born July 26th, 1758), lived in Alstead until March 1795, then moved to Williamstown, Vt. His wife died November 1811, after having born him sixteen children. About 1814 he married a widow (her maiden name was Jane Black) of Putney, Vt., by whom he had seven children, making in all 23 children. His second wife died and he married a widow Smith, lived with her about 14 years and died of a cancer April 27th 1847, in the 88th year of his age, having at the time of his death 114 grandchildren and 84 great-grandchildren.
