Richard Tidd 1775 yilda Linkolnshirda tug'ilgan. U yoshligida Londonga ko'chib o'tgan va Grey's Inn Leyn yaqinidagi xarobalar ko'chasida joylashgan 5-Hole-in-the-Wall Passage-da poyabzalchi bo'lgan. Avvaliga u etikchilik bilan shug'ullangan, biroq Frantsiya bilan urushning boshlanishi uning biznesida tanazzulni keltirib chiqardi. Sakkiz bolaning otasi va hozir juda kambag'al Tidd ingliz armiyasiga qo'shildi. Soxta ism ishlatib, u o'zining mukofot pulini olgan zahoti tashlab ketdi. Tidd keyingi bir necha yil ichida buni bir necha bor qilganini aytdi.
1806 yilda Tidd radikal nomzod Ser Frensis Burdettga Middleseks uchun Jamoat palatasiga saylanish uchun yordam berdi. Burdettga ovoz berish uchun u o'zini Middlesex erkin egasi deb yolg'on gapirgan. Tiddga yolg'on guvohlik berganlikda ayblanishdi, lekin hibsga olishdan oldin u Shotlandiyaga qochib ketdi va u erda besh yil qoldi. 1814 yilda Tidd Londonga qaytdi. Yillar o'tib, uning siyosiy g'oyalari inqilobiy bo'lib, endi Tomas Spensning izdoshi bo'ldi.
1814 yilda Spens vafotidan so'ng, Jeyms Uotson va Artur Tistlvud Spensiyalik filantroplar jamiyatini tuzishga yordam berishdi. Guruhning boshqa a'zolari orasida Jon Brunt, Jeyms Ings, Uilyam Devidson, Tomas Preston va Jon Xopper bor edi. Hukumat bu guruhdan juda xavotirga tushdi va Spensiyaliklarga qo'shilish va ularning faoliyati to'g'risida hisobot berish uchun josus Jon Qal'ani ishga oldi. 1816 yil oktyabr oyida Qal'a Ichki ishlar idorasi josuslari nazoratchisi Jon Staffordga spensiyaliklarning kichik bir guruhi Britaniya hukumatini ag'darishni rejalashtirayotgani haqida xabar berdi.
1816 yil 2 -dekabrda Spence guruhi Islingtonning Spa Fields shahrida ommaviy yig'ilish tashkil qildi. Uchrashuvda Genri "Orator" Xant va Jeyms Uotson so'zga chiqdilar. Magistratlar yig'ilishni tarqatishga qaror qilishdi va Stafford va sakson politsiya xodimi shunday qilayotganlarida, erkaklardan biri Jozef Rodsga pichoq bilan urishdi. Guruhning to'rtta etakchisi - Jeyms Uotson, Artur Tistlvud, Tomas Preston va Jon Xopper hibsga olinib, davlatga xiyonat qilishda ayblangan.
Richard Tidd Londonda Spencean uchrashuvlarida qatnashishni davom ettirdi. Tidd, ayniqsa, Peterloo qirg'inidan qattiq g'azablandi va keyin bu voqeadagi roli uchun Lord Castlereagh va Lord Sidmutni o'ldirish ehtimoli haqida gapirdi.
1820 yil 22 -fevralda Jorj Edvards Artur Tistlvudga kitobni ko'rsatdi Yangi vaqtlar Britaniya hukumatining bir necha a'zolari Grosvenor maydonidagi 39 -uyda lord Harroubining uyida kechki ovqatga borishadi. Richard Tidd 23 fevral kuni Lord Xarrobi uyida ovqatlanayotgan hukumat vazirlarini o'ldirish uchun Tistlvud va boshqa yigirma etti nafar Spensiyaliklarga qo'shilishga rozi bo'ldi.
23 fevralda Tistlvud to'dasi Grosvenor maydonidan bir oz narida joylashgan Kato ko'chasidagi pichanxonaga yig'ildi. Biroq, hukumat vazirlari Xarlobi Xarlining uyida yig'ilishmagan. Spensiyaliklar Spensiya jamiyatiga kirib kelgan hukumat ayg'oqchisi Jorj Edvards tomonidan tashkil etilgan. Jorj Rutven boshchiligidagi 13 politsiya xodimi pichan maydoniga bostirib kirdi. Guruhning bir necha a'zolari qurollarini topshirishdan bosh tortishdi va bitta politsiyachi Richard Smiters Artur Tistvud tomonidan o'ldirildi. To'rt fitnachi, Tistvud, Jon Brunt, Robert Adams va Jon Xarrison derazadan qochib ketishdi, lekin politsiya josuslari ularning kimligini bilishgan va to'rttasi ham keyingi ikki kun ichida hibsga olingan.
Oxir -oqibat, 11 kishi Kato ko'chasidagi fitnaga aloqadorlikda ayblangan. Robert Adams sudda boshqa odamlarga qarshi ko'rsatma berishga rozi bo'lganida ayblovlar olib tashlandi. 1820 yil 28 aprelda Richard Tidd, Artur Tistlevud, Jeyms Ings, Jon Brunt va Uilyam Devidson davlatga xiyonat qilishda aybdor deb topilib, o'lim jazosiga hukm qilindi. Jon Harrison, Jeyms Uilson, Richard Bredbern, Jon Stranj va Charlz Kopper ham aybdor deb topilgan, biroq ularning dastlabki hukmlari umrbod transport bilan almashtirilgan. Richard Tidd 1820 yil 1 mayda Nyugeyt qamoqxonasida qatl qilindi.
Ko'p qaltiragan jallod uzoq vaqt mahbuslarni bog'lab qo'ydi; Bu operatsiya davom etayotganida olomon orasida jimjitlik hukm surdi, lekin tomchi tushganda, umumiy tuyg'u chuqur xo'rsinish va nola bilan namoyon bo'ldi. Ings va Brunt osilgan paytda og'riqni namoyon qilganlar edi. Birinchisi jim qoldi; lekin ikkinchisi bir necha daqiqa davomida, yuzining dahshatli burilishlaridan, eng achchiq qiynoqlarni boshdan kechirayotganday tuyuldi.
Tistlvud bir necha daqiqaga ozgina kurashdi, lekin har bir harakat avvalgisiga qaraganda kuchsizroq edi; va jasad tez orada xuddi o'lim qo'lining harakatiga o'xshab asta -sekin aylana boshladi.
Tidd, uning o'lchami, u ozgina og'riqli og'riqlar bilan "o'tib ketadi", deb taxmin qilishga sabab bo'ldi, yiqilgandan keyin deyarli qimirlamadi. Inglarning kurashlari ajoyib edi. Jallodning yordamchilari oyoqlarini bor kuchi bilan tortdilar; va shunda ham ruhning o'z joyidan ajralishni istamasligi tananing har bir a'zosining harakatlarida kuzatilishi kerak edi. Devidson, uch -to'rt to'rdan keyin harakatsiz qoldi; Ammo Brunt juda azob chekdi va jallodlar va boshqalar uning azoblarini qisqartirish uchun ko'p harakat qilishdi.

Jon Tiddning kelib chiqishi yoki ota -onasi haqida hech qanday dalil yo'q, ammo Anderson uning Xertfordshirlik ekanligi haqidagi dalillarni qabul qiladi.  Jon Tidd va Anna Deyn ota -onalari ularni olib tashlashga tayyorgarlik ko'rishda noaniq deb belgilashgan. Hech qanday muhim nasabnomachi ularni ota -onasi deb atamaydi va ular Yarmutdan. Jonning ismi uning vasiyatnomasida "Tid" va vasiyatnomasida "Tidd" deb yozilgan. O'g'li Jon voyaga etganidan so'ng, ularni mahalliy yozuvlarda farqlash uchun odatda "katta" va "kichik" deb atashardi. Keyingi avlodlar asosan "Tidd" imlosi bo'yicha standartlashtirilgan.
"Jon Deynning hikoyasi, 1682" deb nomlangan qo'lda yozilgan jurnalda "Charlstounda yashagan, janob Tead, taxminan 1630 yil, Xertford, Xertfordshir, Ingliz tijoratchisi. U yosh edi. keyin odam ". Yozuvchi ism -sharifini aniq aytmagan va keyinchalik Charlestownda yashagan Joshua Tidd bor edi, ammo uning joylashuvi va mashg'ulotlari shuni ko'rsatadiki, bu hech bo'lmaganda o'zini "Teylor" deb ataydigan Jon Voburn bilan bir xil oila va oila. uning irodasi.  Bu, Jon Voburnning onasi Deyn deb nomlangani isbotlanmagan gipotezaga asos bo'lishi mumkin. 
Migratsiya va yashash joyi
Jon Tidd va uning oilasi Mary Backusning so'zlariga ko'ra, "erta kelishgan", u 1637 yilda Massachusets shtatining Charlestaun shahrida yashagan.  (Charlestown 1628 yilda tashkil etilgan va 1629 yilda joylashgan.) 1638 yil 23 aprelda Tiddlar oilasi Charlestown shahridagi 68 -sonli lot.  U 1643 yil 10 mayda erkinlik uchun ariza berdi. 
1640 yil 18-dekabrda Jon Tidd 1642 yilda rasman Voburn nomini olgan shahar buyruqlariga imzo chekkan o'ttiz ikki kishidan biri edi. 
1652 yilda Jon Tid Charlztounda Genri Bullokdan keyin, Jon Burridj yaqinidagi kemachi uy Uilyam Jonsonga guvohlar: Maykl Bakon va Jon Seerga murojaat qiladi. 
1655 yilda Jon Tidd, kichik va o'g'li Jon Tidd Charlztounda soliq ro'yxatida paydo bo'ladi.
Jon birinchi bo'lib Margaretga uylandi (tug'ilgan ismi noma'lum kimsa Grinlef). U o'z xohishiga ko'ra ikkinchi Elisga (tug'ilgan ismi noma'lum kimdir Teel yoki Kleytonga) uylangan. (Elis undan omon qoldi va keyingi Uilyam Mannga uylandi.)
Torreyning bu yozuvi, albatta, Elisning Teel deb nomlanganligini ko'rsatadi, lekin hech qanday haqiqiy nikoh qaydnomasi topilmadi va Teel bu oila tomonidan ishlatilgan "Tidd" turlaridan biri bo'lgan "Teed" ning noto'g'ri yozuvi bo'lishi mumkin.

2020 yil bilan xayrlashing!
Biroq, bir nechta vaktsinalarning paydo bo'lishi bizga yaqin kunlarda yaqinlarimizni yana bir bor xavfsiz tarzda quchoqlashimizga umid bag'ishladi.
Bu ob-havo sharoitida yilning yaxshi vaqti emas. Ammo men sayohat qila olmasligim bilan, mayda -chuyda narsalardan zavqlanaman: o'z fuqarolarimiz Robin Redbreastni ko'rish, oxirgi dekabrdagi yomg'irni olib kelayotgan so'nggi xrizantemalar va kelgusi yil lampochkalari paydo bo'lgach, bahorning birinchi taxminiy xabarchilari.
Barchangizni Rojdestvo bilan tabriklayman va yangi yilda eng yaxshi tilaklarimni tilayman.
Mana, kelgusi yil yaxshiroq vaqtlar!

Chikago: Warner, Beers & amp Co., 1883.
L. Dits va K. Torp tomonidan yozilgan
Bu Hardin okrugining o'n besh bo'linmasidan tashkil topgan birinchi shaharcha edi, u 1833 yilda bu graflik tashkil etilishidan bir yil oldin qurilgan va dastlab hozirgi chegaralaridan shimoli va sharqida katta mamlakatni qamrab olgan. Yillar o'tishi bilan boshqa shaharchalar barpo etildi va "O'qish davri" hozirgi o'lchamlariga qisqardi. Viloyat zobitlarining birinchi umumiy saylovi 1833 yil 1 aprelda Jonathon Karter kabinasida bo'lib o'tdi, berilgan ovozlar soni oltmish uchtani tashkil etdi. Bu saylov va uning natijalaridan o'quvchi umumiy tarixga havola qilinadi, bu erda pioner saylovlari va amaldorlar haqidagi hisobot ularning boshi ostida topiladi.
Bu shaharcha deyarli to'g'ri burchakli parallelogramma bo'lib, shimoldan janubga sakkizta oqadilar, o'rtacha kengligi sharqdan g'arbga qariyb uch chorak mil. U shimolda Marion shaharchasi, sharqda MakDonald shaharchasi, janubda Logan okrugi va g'arbda Auglaize okrugi bilan chegaradosh. U Kongress va Virjiniya harbiy erlarini qamrab oladi. Skioto daryosining shimolidagi erlarning katta qismi avvalgi sinfga tegishli va bu daryoning janubidagi qismi ikkinchi toifadagi erlarga tegishli.
Bug'ular, sirt, tuproq va mahsulotlar
Shaharning shimoli -g'arbiy burchagida, g'arbdan sharqqa 6 -bo'limning markazidan o'tib, u erdan 5 -bo'limning shimoli -g'arbiy qismidan Marion shaharchasiga o'tadigan shimoli -sharqiy yo'nalishda, Pretty Ran deb nomlanuvchi kichik oqim bor. 7 -bo'limda janubdan bir mil narida, Fordning yugurishi Auglaize okrugidan kiradi va shimoliy -sharqiy yo'nalishda, 7 -bo'lim va 8, 9 va 4 -bo'limlar orqali, shimoliy -sharqiy burchakdagi Marion shaharchasiga o'tadi. oxirgi deb nomlangan bo'lim. Ammo asosiy oqim - bu shaharchaning g'arbiy qismida va Auglaize okrugining sharqiy qismida, 30 -bo'limning janubi -g'arbiy burchagida cho'lda cho'zilgan Scioto daryosi va janubi -sharqiy yo'nalishda: u erdan sharqqa va shimoli -sharqqa. 33 -bo'limning shimoli -sharqiy burchagidagi shaharchaning sharqiy chizig'iga etib borgunga qadar, uning yo'nalishi shimoliy va shimoli -sharqiy bo'lib, shaharchaning sharqiy chegara chizig'ini tashkil etadi va Marion shaharchasiga shimoli -sharqiy burchagiga kiradi. Sirt tekis va siljiydi. Janubiy markaziy qismda, Skiotoning har ikki tomonida va shaharning sharqiy qismida, botqoqqa yetguncha, ma'lum bir masofada, yuzasi to'lqinli va ba'zi joylarda biroz tepalikli. Qishloq balansi odatda bir xil darajada. Tuproq, asosan, loy va qumloqdir, faqat quyi, tekis erlar va botqoqlikdan tashqari, chuqur, qora qumloqdan iborat. Bu deyarli hammasi boy va samarali, va. shaharcha sifatida qishloq xo'jaligi uchun juda yaxshi erlar. Bu shaharchadagi botqoq erlar o'n ikki dan o'n besh yuz gektargacha bo'lgan maydonlarni o'z ichiga oladi, bu esa hozircha deyarli yaroqsiz, chunki ekin etishtirish uchun juda nam, lekin biz bu erda boshqa hech narsa yozmaymiz, chunki bu bobda to'liq ko'rib chiqilgan. okrugning umumiy tarixi. Bug'doy, makkajo'xori, jo'xori, kartoshka va pichan mo'l -ko'l ekinlarda ishlab chiqariladi. Bu er dastlab yog'ochdan yasalgan edi, o'rmonlar ilgari bu okrugning boshqa shaharchalarida aytib o'tilgan navlardan iborat edi: oq, qora va qizil eman, kul, qarag'ay, olxa, chinor, yong'oq, hikor, qarag'ay va chinor.
YO'LLAR VA PIKES
Bu shaharcha temir yo'l bilan chegaralanmagan, unga eng yaqin stantsiya va yuk tashish joyi - Belle Center. Ammo yo'llar va pikenlar uchun u juda ko'p materialga ega, tepaliklar va dumalab erlar yaxshi shag'al bilan qoplangan. Round Head & amp Ada pike shaharchaning butun uzunligi bo'ylab, uning markazi yaqinida, shimoldan janubgacha o'tadi. "Round Head & ampy Belle Center" va "Kenton & amp Round Head", bir yoki ikkita boshqa sayohatchilar - yaxshi sayohat va barcha asosiy nuqtalarga sayohatni oson va yoqimli qiladi.
Bu shaharchaning birinchi ko'chmanchisi, Pensilvaniya shtatining fuqarosi Samuel Tidd edi, u 1822 yil fevral oyida 21 -bo'limga joylashdi, u erda 1851 yil 8 -martda vafot etdi. Keyin, vaqt tartibida, beva ayol Richi va uning ikkisi keldi. o'g'illari, Samuel va Endryu, 20 -bo'limda joylashgan. Ular ham Pensilvaniyadan edi, u erdan Ogayo shtatining Logan okrugiga hijrat qilishdi. Bu erda otasi vafot etdi va shu kuni aytilgan oila shu shaharga ko'chirildi, u erda o'g'illari hali ham yashaydilar. Bu oilalarning to'liqroq eskizi graflikning umumiy tarixida uchraydi.
Jeyms Xilt 1825 yil Round Head Townshipga keldi, shuningdek, 20 -bo'limga joylashdi. U Baltimor yaqinida tug'ilgan, Pensilvaniya shtatining Lankaster okrugiga, keyin esa Logan okrugiga, Ogayodan Hardinga. U bu erda bir-ikki yil qolib, Logan okrugiga qaytdi, lekin 1833 yilda u yana shu shaharchaga keldi va o'sha bo'limda joylashgan, 1862 yil 25 sentyabrda, to'qson to'qqiz yoshida vafot etdi. Uning xotini, 1851 yilda, yetmish ko'rish yoshida vafot etdi. Umrining so'nggi o'n bir yilida u butunlay ko'r edi.

U 1845 yil 30 aprelda oltmish sakkiz yoshida vafot etdi. Uning xotini 1862 yil 4 sentyabrda oltmish ikki yoshida vafot etdi. Bu erga kelganidan bir necha yil o'tgach, janob Mahan, bu yangi aholi punktiga eng yaqin tegirmon bo'lgan, silliqlash uchun Logan okrugiga yigirma mil yoki undan ko'p masofani bosib o'tishning noqulayligini ko'rdi va shu zahotiyoq ot kuchiga tegirmon qurdi. Buxarlar qora boshli toshdan yasalgan: g'ildirak g'ildiraklari yog'och bloklardan yasalgan, uchburchak shaklda, poydevori oval bo'lib, tepasida o'rtada joylashgan. Bu g'ildirak hiqichoq po'stlog'ining belbog'i bilan ot kuchi bilan bog'langan edi, va ot, aylana bo'ylab aylanib o'tadigan, qutbga mahkamlangan, donni bunkerga qo'yganda, butun mashinani harakatga keltirgan. buharlar orasidan o'tdi va shu tariqa nonga aylandi. Garchi bu bizning fabrikalarimiz bilan taqqoslaganda, bir oz nomukammal va sekin ishlagan bo'lsa -da, baribir, bu birinchi ko'chmanchilar uchun katta qulaylik va ko'p vaqt va mehnatni tejash edi va bir necha yillar davomida odamlarni yaxshi holatga keltirdi. tegirmonlar qurildi. Janob Mahan ikki marta uylangan. Birinchi xotini vafotidan so'ng, u Pensilvaniya shtatida tug'ilgan Syuzan Xillmanga uylandi.

Lorenzo Dow Lay 1832-33 yillardayoq bu erda istiqomat qilgan bu shaharchaning birinchi ko'chmanchilaridan biriga aylandi, lekin u vafotigacha bir necha yil qoldi.
Jorj Blekok ko'chmanchi bo'lgan, deb ishoniladi, 1830-31 yillardayoq temirchi o'ziga xos xarakterga ega edi, biz ulardan juda kam narsani bilib oldik.
Bizning fikrimizcha, 1822 yildan 1835 yilgacha bo'lgan asosiy ko'chmanchilar, shundan so'ng shaharcha juda tez joylashdi.
Viloyatning bu qismida joylashgan birinchi ko'chmanchilardan keyin bir necha yillar davomida ular bir -biridan juda uzoq masofada joylashgan edilar, shuning uchun butun mamlakat zich o'rmon edi, shuning uchun hech qanday maktab tashkil etishning iloji bo'lmadi, lekin bir mahallada ko'chmanchilar etarli bo'lganda. o'qituvchini ishga joylashtirish uchun etarli miqdorda obunani yig'ish uchun biz buning uchun zarur choralarni ko'rmoqdamiz. Erta tongda, bir nechta oilalar o'z kuchlarini birlashtirib, 21 -bo'limda kichkina yog'ochdan yasalgan kabin qurdilar, u erda Piter C. Makartur birinchi o'qituvchi sifatida ishlagan.

Nihoyat, shaharcha maktab tumanlariga bo'lindi, bepul maktab qonuni o'rnatildi va maktablar ko'payib, gullab -yashnadi. Hozir shaharcha ettita maktabga bo'linadi, sakkiz xonali ettita yaxshi maktab uyi bor, ularda sakkizta o'qituvchi ishlaydi. O'qituvchilarning o'rtacha oylik maoshi, erkak, $ 36. ayollar, $ 24. Maktablarning o'rtacha haftalik soni: 30. Olimlar, o'g'il bolalar, 151 qiz, 128 jami, 279. Maktab maqsadlari uchun jami tushumlar, jami xarajatlar 3 104,08 dollar, 2332,38 dollar qoldiq 1882 yil 1 sentyabr, maktabning umumiy bahosi 771,70 dollar. mulk, 4200 dollar.
Shaharlar va qishloqlar.
Bu shaharchada faqat bitta qishloq bor - "Dumaloq bosh" - 1832 yil 16 -iyul, egasi Jonatan Karter uchun Logan okrugining tadqiqotchisi Jeyms U. Marmon tomonidan uchastkalar, ko'chalar va xiyobonlarga joylashtirilgan. Logan County Records-da, D kitobi, 356-bet, va o'ttiz oltita lotni o'z ichiga olgan. Jonatan Karterning Shimoliy qo'shimchasi 1839 yil 17 oktyabrda tuzilgan va o'rganilgan va 1841 yil 30 apreldagi tinchlik adolati Richard Rutledge oldida e'lon qilingan. Shahar hech qachon temir yo'l yoki ishlab chiqarish manfaatlariga ega bo'lmagan, uning o'sishini kuchaytirish, lekin qat'iy qishloq qishloq bo'lgan. A post office was early established here, and a considerable amount of mercantile trade has continued to be done down to the present time. The first cabin erected here was by Mr. Carter, when he first settled here, but after the town was laid out, Jacob Thompson is said to have built the first house. Thomas Livingston kept the first tavern. Alexander Templeton opened the first store. Dr. Smith and Dr. Starrett were the first physicians.
This town was named after the township, which is said to have been named in honor of the Indian chief of that name, of whom a further account is given-together with the Indian town at this place in the general history of the county. Some fine, large apple trees are still standing here, which are said to have been planted by Indians. One tree, on Mr. Jacobs' lot, is a very large and thrifty tree, and continues to bear good crops of fine apples. The business interests of Round head now embrace four general stores, one saw mill, two blacksmith shops and one blacksmith and carriage and wagon shop, one drug store, one milliner and dress-maker, two hotels, one livery and feed stable and two physicians.

Henkle Cemetery - This piece of land is situated on the extreme southeast corner of the southeast quarter of Section 20, and was donated for this purpose by Reuben Henkle. The first occupant of this land was James Hill, who settled here in 1825, and whose aged mother died either in 1825 or in 1826, and was the first person interred in this cemetery. The second person was Phoebe Lay, since which it has received the remains of many of the pioneers - John Mahan, Samuel Tidd, William Given and others.
Round Head Cemetery - This was first dedicated to use by the reception of the body of Samuel Zimmerman, a son of Michael Zimmerman, who died August 1, 1836, aged nineteen years since which the grounds have been filled with the dead of the early settlers and others of this vicinity. A few years since, the Trustees purchased grounds just east of Round Head, on nice, elevated lands, which they have laid off into lots and fenced and improved, so that it is now a pleasant location, and well suited for the purposes intended.

Fascinated by Charlestown, MA and the Tidd Family
When studying the Tidd family, who seem to have first come to the colonies in about 1637, I reviewed the works of many authors. Recently I purchased two books relative to the town of Charlestown, Massachusetts where they are known to have first inhabited. The first book is From Deference to Defiance, Charlestown, Massachusetts, 1629-1692 by Roger Thompson, published by the New England Historical Genealogical Society, Boston, 2012, 593 pages. The second book is Charlestown, Mass. Vol. 1Vital Records to 1850 by Roger D. Joslyn, published by the New England Historical Genealogical Society, Boston, 1984, 919 pages.
The first book covers the following topics, with notations about the Tidd family:
Peopling, the Origins - includes the tax list of 16 November 1658, Josh Tid page 49.
Town - includes a list of officeholders, J. Tidd held several, pages 60, 62, 73, 77.
Land - includes a map ca. 1638 showing Tidd property between Harvard St. and Crooked Lane, page 100 Josiah Tidd one of the founding elite, page 96.
Sea - includes a list of Charlestown Maritime Inhabitants, 1630-1685, J Tidd merchant and retailer 1656-1678, page 150 Joshua Tidd battle with neighbor John Trumball, page 155 Joshua Tidd v.

Violence - Joshua Tidd customer of John Cromwell embroiled in the beaver trade with the Indians in the Kennebec Valley in Maine, other customers were Francis Norton, Richard Russell, and Richard Sprague, found in Cromwell's records, page 474 and note.
Index - pages 537-593.
On page 176, " Joshua Tidd or Tead (1607-78), by now about fifty, had arrived in Charlestown in 1637 from Hertford, a renowned Puritan center twenty-five miles north of London, which gave its name to the capital of Connecticut. He became a church member in 1639. By trade he was a carpenter, a highly valued and well paid profession. He served the town as constable, and Middlesex County as grand juryman, acting as foreman in 1655. In 1648 he built a shop and portal by the east door of the meetinghouse. In the 1660s and 1670s he was twice a selectman, as well as rate commissioner, ensign, and then lieutenant of the militia. In the year of the seizure, his eldest daughter Sarah married the successful sea captain Zechariah Long. During the 1650s, Tidd used Chelmsford fur trader John Cromwell as his agent in small transactions with Indian trappers. He also dealt with Captain John Trumbell for English goods, especially fabrics and haberdashery. His bruising experiences with both Trumball and the Kennebec residents seem to have driven him back to woodworking. In 1668, he managed major renovations of the meetinghouse. Inside the building he had been recruited as reliably orthodox by the three deacons in 1665 to help them contain and control the Baptist challenge. He refused an unusual third term in the responsible but time-consuming job of constable, and his reasons were eventually accepted. He lived a long and useful life in Charlestown, a reliable middle manager in the militia, church, and town government. The Kennebec imbroglio appears a rare external venture."
The sources for this information include Hertford: "John Dane's Relation", R8 (1854), 147-56 life: Wyman, Savage, Cromwell Rodgers, 2:60, and below, "Mass Violence." Trumbull and Tidd fell out in 1658 and again in 1663Tidd won three cases of debt as defendant, MxCCRB, 1:161, 278, 292 D&O, 1 docs 758, 763, 2228, 2245, 2253 see above, "The Sea: Introduction." On 31 December 1671, he had bought L5 worth of carpenters' nails and steel imported from London. Hull, Letter Book, 46."

Many people have researched these families. With the availability of records increasing every day, there may be answers to the questions surrounding them. They were held in high esteem in each of their respective towns. Reading the first book, From Deference to Defiance, I am learning more about the cultures that they lived in even if little of the information is specific to them. It is time that I return to the original records available for these locations and explore the records for more information about the Tidd famiies. From the information about the children's births it appears that the families lived in specific locations in England. Learning about whom they may have traveled with, the direct connection between John and Joshua, and then what became of their children will help me in piecing together the family history. I appreciate that I came across both books and ordered them for personal reading. It takes a lot of time to read and decipher the content, but I am gaining valuable insight into the records that will help in my search.
Consider ordering a book about a locality you are researching to explore the culture that affected your ancestor's lives. Now I need to go finish reading the first book, as I am still only halfway through.
Thomas Spence, a schoolteacher from Newcastle arrived in London in December 1792. Over the next twenty-two years Spence developed a reputation as an important radical figure in Britain. He wrote books, pamphlets and produced a journal, Pigs Meat, where he argued for the radical transformation of society. The publication of this material resulted in him enduring several periods of imprisonment.
Spence did not believe in a centralized radical body and instead encouraged the formation of small groups that could meet in local public houses. At these meetings Thomas Spence argued that "if all the land in Britain was shared out equally, there would be enough to give every man, woman and child seven acres each". At night the men walked the streets and chalked on the walls slogans such as "Spence's Plan and Full Bellies" and "The Land is the People's Farm". In 1800 and 1801 the authorities believed that Spence and his followers were responsible for bread riots in London. However, they did not have enough evidence to arrest them for this offence.
Drawing of Arthur Thistlewood killing Richard Smithers
Thomas Spence died in September 1814. He was buried by "forty disciples" who pledged that they would keep his ideas alive. They did this by forming the Society of Spencean Philanthropists. The men met in small groups all over London. These meetings mainly took place in public houses and they discussed the best way of achieving an equal society. Places used included the Mulberry Tree in Moorfields, the Carlisle in Shoreditch, the Cock in Soho, the Pineapple in Lambeth, the White Lion in Camden, the Horse and Groom in Marylebone and the Nag's Head in Carnaby Market.
The government became very concerned about this group that they employed a spy, John Castle, to join the Spenceans and report on their activities. In October 1816 Castle reported to John Stafford, supervisor of Home Office spies, that the Spenceans were planning to overthrow the British government.
1816 yil 2 -dekabrda Spence guruhi Islingtonning Spa Fields shahrida ommaviy yig'ilish tashkil qildi. The speakers at the meeting included Henry 'Orator' Hunt and James Watson. The magistrates decided to disperse the meeting and while Stafford and eighty police officers were doing this, one of the men, Joseph Rhodes, was stabbed. Spenceansning to'rtta etakchisi Jeyms Uotson, Artur Tistlevud, Tomas Preston va Jon Xopper hibsga olinib, davlatga xiyonat qilishda ayblangan.
George Cruikshank, Cato Street Conspiracy (1820)
Jeyms Uotson birinchi bo'lib sud qilindi. Biroq, ayblovning asosiy guvohi hukumat josusi Jon Kastl edi. Mudofaa kengashi Qal'aning sudlanganligi va uning guvohligi ishonchsiz ekanligini ko'rsatishga muvaffaq bo'ldi. The jury concluded that Castle was an agent provocateur (a person employed to incite suspected people to some open action that will make them liable to punishment) and refused to convict Watson. Uotsonga qarshi ish muvaffaqiyatsiz tugagani uchun, xuddi shu jinoyat uchun sud qilinishi kerak bo'lgan boshqa uch kishini ozod qilishga qaror qilindi.
The Spenceans continued to meet after the trial but the members now disagreed about the future strategy of the group. Arthur Thistlewood was convinced a successful violent revolution was possible. James Watson now doubted the wisdom of this strategy and although he still attended meetings, he gradually lost control of the group to the more militant ideas of Thistlewood.
The government remained concerned about the Spenceans and in January, 1817 John Stafford asked a police officer, George Ruthven, to join the group. Ruthven discovered that the Spenceans were planning an armed rising. Arthur Thistlewood, claimed at one meeting that he could raise 15,000 armed men in just half an hour. Bu ma'lumot natijasida, Jon Uilyamson, Jon Shego, Jeyms Xanli, Jorj Edvards va Tomas Dvayer ham Stafford tomonidan spensiyaliklarga josuslik qilish uchun yollangan.
The Peterloo Massacre in Manchester increased the amount of anger the Spenceans felt towards the government. At one meeting a spy reported that Arthur Thistlewood said: "High Treason was committed against the people at Manchester. I resolved that the lives of the instigators of massacre should atone for the souls of murdered innocents."
On 22nd February 1820, George Edwards pointed out to Arthur Thistlewood an item in the New Times that said several members of the British government were going to have dinner at Lord Harrowby's house at 39 Grosvenor Square the following night. Thistlewood argued that this was the opportunity they had been waiting for. It was decided that a group of Spenceans would gain entry to the house and kill all the government ministers. The heads of Lord Castlereagh and Lord Sidmouth would be placed on poles and taken around the slums of London. Thistlewood was convinced that this would incite an armed uprising that would overthrow the government. This would be followed by the creation of a new government committed to creating a society based on the ideas of Thomas Spence.
Over the next few hours Thistlewood attempted to recruit as many people as possible to take part in the plot. Many people refused and according to the police spy, George Edwards, only twenty-seven people agreed to participate. This included William Davidson, James Ings, Richard Tidd, John Brunt, John Harrison, James Wilson, Richard Bradburn, John Strange, Charles Copper, Robert Adams and John Monument.
William Davidson had worked for Lord Harrowby in the past and knew some of the staff at Grosvenor Square. He was instructed to find out more details about the cabinet meeting. However, when he spoke to one of the servants he was told that the Earl of Harrowby was not in London. When Davidson reported this news back to Arthur Thistlewood, he insisted that the servant was lying and that the assassinations should proceed as planned.
One member of the gang, John Harrison, knew of a small, two-story building in Cato Street that was available for rent. The ground-floor was a stable and above that was a hayloft. As it was only a short distance from Grosvenor Square, it was decided to rent the building as a base for the operation. Edwards told Stafford of the plan and Richard Birnie, a magistrate at Bow Street, was put in charge of the operation. Lord Sidmouth instructed Birnie to use men from the Second Battalion Coldstream Guards as well as police officers from Bow Street to arrest the Cato Street Conspirators.
Birnie decided to send George Ruthven, a police officer and former spy who knew most of the Spenceans, to the Horse and Groom, a public house that overlooked the stable in Cato Street. On 23rd February, Ruthven took up his position at two o'clock in the afternoon. Soon afterwards Thistlewood's gang began arriving at the stable. By seven thirty Richard Birnie and twelve police officers joined Ruthven at Cato Street.
The Coldstream Guards had not arrived and Birnie decided he had enough men to capture the Cato Street gang. Birnie gave orders for Ruthven to carry out the task while he waited outside. Inside the stable the police found James Ings on guard. He was quickly overcome and George Ruthven led his men up the ladder into the hayloft where the gang were having their meeting. As he entered the loft Ruthven shouted, "We are peace officers. Lay down your arms." Arthur Thistlewood and William Davidson raised their swords while some of the other men attempted to load their pistols. One of the police officers, Richard Smithers, moved forward to make the arrests but Thistlewood stabbed him with his sword. Smithers gasped, "Oh God, I am. " and lost consciousness. Smithers died soon afterwards.
Some of the gang surrendered but others like William Davidson were only taken after a struggle. Four of the conspirators, Thistlewood, John Brunt, Robert Adams and John Harrison escaped out of a back window. However, George Edwards had given the police a detailed list of all those involved and the men were soon arrested.
Eleven men were eventually charged with being involved in the Cato Street Conspiracy. After the experience of the previous trial of the Spenceans, Lord Sidmouth was unwilling to use the evidence of his spies in court. Fitna haqida juda ko'p ma'lumotga ega bo'lgan Jorj Edvards hech qachon chaqirilmagan. Politsiya, agar qolgan fitnachilarga qarshi ko'rsatma berishga tayyor bo'lsa, to'daning ayrim a'zolariga qo'yilgan ayblovlarni bekor qilishni taklif qildi. Bu odamlardan ikkitasi, Robert Adams va Jon Monument rozi bo'lishdi va ular to'daning qolgan a'zolarini ayblash uchun zarur bo'lgan dalillarni taqdim etishdi.
William Davidson said in court: "It is an ancient custom to resist tyranny. And our history goes on further to say, that when another of their Majesties the Kings of England tried to infringe upon those rights, the people armed, and told him that if he did not give them the privileges of Englishmen, they would compel him by the point of the sword. Would you not rather govern a country of spirited men, than cowards? I can die but once in this world, and the only regret left is, that I have a large family of small children, and when I think of that, it unmans me."
On 28th April 1820, Arthur Thistlewood, William Davidson, James Ings, Richard Tidd, and John Brunt were found guilty of high treason and sentenced to death. John Harrison, James Wilson, Richard Bradburn, John Strange and Charles Copper were also found guilty but their original sentence of execution was subsequently commuted to transportation for life. Thistlewood, Davidson, Ings, Tidd and Brunt were executed at Newgate Prison on the 1st May, 1820.
Inquisitive Minds Want to Know - Part III
By now you are probably wondering if Part III of this series is ever going to be posted. Rest assured that this inquisitive mind has been hard at work comparing the families who settled in Charlestown, MA by 1640. Twenty-three of them are on the map of the town created in 1638 and are the focus of the study.
From the book, Charlestown Vital Records to 1850, by Roger D. Joslyn, we learn more about the makeup of these early families. Other details were gleaned from the book, Genealogical Register of the First Settlers of New England, by John Farmer. The following is a synopsis of the twenty-three families and the information found with regards to the recorded events in their lives. Keep in mind that in some of the lists all of the children's births are listed together, which makes the birth information questionable.

So, how does all of this information help us to understand the town of Charlestown, MA. First of all it is a port town, where seafaring men and merchants met to exchange wares and arrange to transport items and people between England and the colony. Second it was made up of families, most seem to have married before coming to New England and brought children with them, while some had children born during this developing period. Some were famiies of Ship Captains who were gone for long periods of time, and yet these women carried on in the daily tasks of providing for their families. The risk of death to seafaring men was high, and at times their widows would have to carry on without them. I was pleased to identify the names of so many of the wives.
One can imagine that often more than one family would live together until more housing could be built. Compared to England they now lived in a culture where they could work hard and prosper. Every individual brought or would develop talents that would benefit the community. From the details listed above we can see that from this group and in blue those from the addendum to follow there were many types of occupations:
On this date in 1820 — which was not yet a red-letter day on the leftist calendar — five radicals were hanged at Newgate Prison for a plot to overthrow the government.
A British government that had tilted from reactionary after the French Revolution to furiously repressive after defeating Napoleon was energetically at work stamping out the wide-ranging upheaval convulsing the isles.
This day’s conspirators plotted to overturn the authoritarian rule of Lord Liverpool by murdering his ministers at a dinner party. Next steps:
This excellent plot was hatched by none other than a government informant, who planted the idea among the circle and arranged their arrest when they took the bait. Already-notorious subversive Arthur Thistlewood was the jewel in the crown’s crown, particularly after having slain an arresting officer in the fray when the trap was sprung.
Ten were condemned to death, five of those sentences commuted to transportation — leaving Thistlewood to hang* along with John Brunt, James Ings, Richard Tidd and the Afro-Caribbean tradesman William Davidson. The crowd was reportedly vocally supportive of the condemned.
The Cato Street Conspirators hanged. As represented at the bottom of the scaffold: the dead men were cut down after their execution and posthumously beheaded.
It was in the aftermath of this shocking affair that Byron completed his work on a long-ago Venetian putsch, Marino Faliero, with such stirring reflections upon the blood sacrifice of liberty as
They never fail who die
In a great cause: the block may soak their gore:
Their heads may sodden in the sun their limbs
Be strung to city gates and castle walls â€”
But still their Spirit walks abroad. Though years
Elapse, and others share as dark a doom,
They but augment the deep and sweeping thoughts
Which overpower all others, and conduct
The world at last to Freedom.
Still, even from the safety of Italy, the rakish rebel had a gentleman’s disdain for bular lowborn butchers overpowering anything at all.
What a set of desperate fools these Utican conspirators seem to have been. As if in London, after the disarming acts, or indeed at any time, a secret could have been kept among thirty or forty. And if they had killed poor Harrowby — in whose house I have been five hundred times, at dinners and parties his wife is one of ‘the Exquisites’ — and t’other fellows, what end would it have answered? ‘They understand these things better in France’, as Yorick says, but really, if these sort of awkward butchers are to get the upper hand, I for one will declare off. I have always been (before you were, as you well know) a well-wisher to, and voter for reform in parliament but ‘such fellows as these, who will never go to the gallows with any credit’ … and make one doubt of the virtue of any principle or politics which can be embraced by similar ragamuffins. I know that revolutions are not to be made with rose water, but though some blood may, and must be shed on such occasions, there is no reason it should be clotted in short, the Radicals seem to be no better than Jack Cade or Wat Tyler, and to be dealt with accordingly.

* “The men died like heroes. Ings, perhaps, was too obstreperous in singing ‘Death or Liberty’, and Thistlewood said, ‘Be quiet, Ings we can die without all this noise.'”
