A Journey thru Kennebunk and coastal Maine area.

Collecting Kimball Family Ancestrial Genealogy on the way.

The Early Explorers and Significants Dates, by the Kennebunk Sesquicentennial Edition, York County Coast Star, June 24, 1970

About 1000 AD it is believed that the Norsemen sighted the coast of Maine.

1498 - John Cabot, after his discovery of the coast of Labrador, sailed as far south as Maine and Massachusetts.

1524 - John Verazzano, in the service of France, is acknowledged as the first explorer known to have sailed along the Maine Coast, "keeping the coast of Maine in sight for fifty leagues"

1525 - On his voyage from Newfoundland to Delaware, Spanish adventurer Gomez passed in view of the Maine coast.

1602 - Bartholomew Gosnold, in a small vessel with l000 men, voyaged from England to the coast of Maine in 49 days. It is believed that the "Northland" mentioned in his narrative of the voyage was CAPE PORPOISE, and the "Savage Rock" he noted was the NUBBLE, near CAPE NEDDICK, ME.

1603 - Martin Pring "went a short distance up the KENNEBUNK RIVER" finding no people, but noting signs of abandoned fires. Remich's History of Kennebunk" states that Pring's visit was made in the summer and the natives were undoubtedly up the KENNEBUNK RIVER and MOUSAM RIVER at the time, looking after their traps.

1604/5-Sieur de Monts, searching for a favorable site for the founding of a French colony, built a light sailing vessel at Passamaquoddy Bay and "undertook a voyage of discovery" One of his stopping points was Cape Porpoise. From there he went up the Kennebunk River where he was astonished to find "immense flocks of turtledoves, or wild pigeons".

1606 - A grant of land which included the present State of Maine was obtained from King James I by the Plymouth Company. An attempt made in 1607 to establish a colony at the mouth of the Kennebec River ended in failure, the colonists returning to England less than a year after their arrival.

1616/17 Through the influence of Sir Fernando Georges, prominent in promoting the interests of the Plymouth Company, Richard Vines, with three ships and one hundred settlers, visited the Maine coast, entered the Saco River and camped at Winter Harbor. Vines and his followers were unable to overcome the obstacles and returned to England.

"First Settlers - they were not Kimballs"

There are various accounts of the early inhabitants of the of the Kennebunk, Wells area. Author Kathleen Ostrander in her book "Remembering the KENNEBUNKS" has some interesting information regarding "Our Native American History", Artifacts have been found throughout our area that dates back thousands of years to Paleo-Indians. Who are they? Simply put: prehistoric or ancient Indians. Some folks have been lucky enough to find arrowheads and temporary campsites. Later, the Native Americans who inhabited our area at the time the English first came here were called the Abenaki tribe, which was part of the Algonquin Nation. The tribe was made up of a number of villages and had a ruler called a Chief Sachem. In Wells that Sachem of 1640 was known as Sagamore, or

Chief Thomas Chabinocke. The author has many more facts about our area in the aforementioned book, published by The History Press. King Philip's War, according to Wikipedia it was called the First Indian War, called "Metacom's War", or "Metcomet's War", or "Metacom's Rebellion", was an armed conflict between Native American inhabitants of present-day New England and Engish colonists and their Native American allies in 1675-78. The war is named for the main leader of the Native American side, Metacomet, who had adopted the English name "King Philip" in honor of the previously-friendly relations between his father and the original Mayflower Pilgrims. The war continued in the most northern reaches of New England until the signing of the Treaty of Casco Bay in April 1678. In 1691, the Province of Massachusetts Bay was formed by merging the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Plymouth Colony, Province of Maine, Nantucket, MA, Martha's Vineyard, MA and Nova Scotia. New Hampshire had been part of Massachusetts Bay Colony from 1641-1679. Nova Scotia was split off in 1696.

John Sanders and John Cheater are generally acknowledged to be the first settlers in that part of Wells now known as Kennebunk. Sanders, undoubtedly the first permanent settler, received from Thomas Georges, deputy governer, a grant of 150 acres of land lying between the Little and Cape Porpus rivers (known now as the Kennebunk and Mousam rivers) for which he agreed to Sir Ferdinando, his heirs and assigns, six shillings and eight pence on the twentieth of September each year. Sanders' house, roughly built for immediate occupancy, is believed to have stood near the mouth of the Cape Porpus (Mousam) River.

In 1663, Mr.Sanders conveyed his holdings, to John Cutts of Portmsouth, NH., who afterward became president of New Hampshire. After he sold this property, Sanders and his family moved to Cape Porpus (now called Cape Porpoise), which is part of Kennebunkport, where he died in 1670.

Shortly after 1643, John Cheater was granted a tract of 100 acres, and he too built a house near the Cape Porpus River (Mousam) near the Sanders place. John Cheater came to the Kennebunk district of Wells from Newbury, Massachusetts. Cheater sold his land in Newbury, MA to Daniel Epps of Ipswich. TAKE NOTE OF THE NAME "IPSWICH".

Shortly after the Cheater grant, about 1650, George Butland was granted a tract of 600 acres, commencing at the seashore on the western side of the Kennebunk River, running back a mile or so into the country, from where the west breakwater is now to about where the Route 9 bridge is across from Dock Square, Kennebunkport, ME. George Butland relinquished half of his grant to John Butland, who built a house near the sea and lived there for many years. Around this same time a grant of 200 acres was made to William Symands, this property being on the seashore by the mouth of the Mousam River, on the west side where the Dwight home "Riverhurst" is now; another grant to Daniel Pierce bounded by Symands, the seashore, the commons to the north and the Mousam River to the east, apparently a dogleg around the Symands Property.

From Wikipedia, we find that- In 1660, John Sanders, John Bush, and Peter Turbot,at purchased from the Abenaki Sachem Sososwen and his son Fluellin what is now the township of Lyman. First called Swanfield, it was settled in 1767. While the original settlers are not know for certain, early records and deeds mention the following; William and Jacob Waterhouse (of Kennebunk), Love Roberts, Alexander Grant, Thomas Lord, Jacob Rhoades, Benjamin and Mark Goodwin (brothers who built one of the first mills at Goodwin's Mills), John Low (who served as town moderator and treasurer), John Burbank, Joseph Witten, James and William Brock, Mark Richer, Robet Cousens, Valentine Hill and Geshom Downs.

Swanfield was incorporated by the Massachusetts General Court on April 24, 1780 as Coxhall, probably after Coggeshall, (pronounced Coxhall) in Essex, England. On February 25, 1803, the name was changed to Lyman in honor of Theodore Lyman, a wealthy merchant who established a successful shipping firm in the 1790s at York before moving to Boston.

Farmers found the surface of the town moderately uneven, with fair soil that yield good crops of grain, hay, and apples. Watermills were established at the outlets of the larger ponds, with two sawmills at Swan Pond and another at Kennebunk Pond. Lumbering was a considerable source of income for many inhabitants. In 1782, a sawmill and a gristmill were erected at Goodwin's Mills, which developed into the town's only business and trade center, despite the fact that some of the village is actually located in Dayton. The Great Fires of 1947 devastated parts of Lyman. Today, the town is largely a bedroom community.

Those were the earliest grants. About 20 years later the inland land grants began in the area that would eventually become the center of town, the area surrounding Route 1 between the Mousam and Kennebunk Rivers. The riverside property, north and south became the subject of additional grants.

1669- A town grant to Henry Sayward, James Johnson of York and Thomas Paty of Wells, "liberty to build a saw-mill at Cape Porpus River falls" (Sayward Street, just above Route 1).

1670- John Gooch, 50 acres at the mouth of the Kennebunk River west shore.

1675- John Bates, 110 acres, and 100 acres, both on the Mousam River.

1679- Elizabeth Look, 100 acres, at three-mile brook.

1680- Town grants of one hundred acres of upland, adjoining or near "Kennebunk River Great Falls," (near Route 1) to each of the following Edmund Littlefield, Nicholas Cole, Nathan Littlefield and Samuel Littlefield.


In the 19th and early 20th Century many industrial businesses were attracted to Mousam River at Kennebunk. Among them were the Kennebunk Mfg Co., the Mousam Mfg Co., the Leatheroid Co., and the Rogers Fibre Co.

In 1634, two emigrant KEMBALL brothers (Henry and Richard) emigrated from Suffolk, England to the Watertown area of America, and each settled in that area. Henry settled in Watertown and later Wenham, MA and Richard settled after about 3 yrs, to Ipswich, MA. Henry, retained the "Kemball" spelling, but Richard took the "Kimball" spelling.

I will start with the younger emigrant (1) which migrated to the area now known as NH and ME, and the elder emigrant, Henry(1) ancestors seem to migrate to the IL., WI. area of the country. I will start with the younger emigrant which migrated to the area now known as NH and ME.

The younger of two emigrants, RICHARD(1) who with his wife, Ursula Scott daughter of Henry Scott, and eight children,(Sara, ) embarked Ipswich, County of Suffolk, England, April 10, 1634, in the ship Elizabeth, with William Andrews, master. He arrived in Boston Harbor, and from there went to Watertown, Mass. He left the comforts and ties and oppressions of old England to find for himself and children a home in the New World. It was to him a land of promise, a land of religious and political liberty, a land in which the longing eyes of the dwellers in old Suffolk were turning as fondly as did the eyes of the ancient Hebrews turn in their captivity to the promised land of Canaan.() Richard and Ursula had three additional children (Sara(2), Benjamin(2), Caleb(2)) born in the colony.

Richard(1) born in England, and wife Ursula had 11 Children (not in birth order): 5 daughters: (Abigail(2), Elizabeth(2), Mary(2), Martha(2), and Sara(2)) and (6 sons: (Henry(2), Richard(2), John(2), Thomas(2), Benjamin(2), and Caleb,(2)

Children of Richard(2) with known info available as they migrated northeast from the southeast Mass. Many, many of these went to what we now know as New Hampshire.

Daughters (Elizabeth(3) and Susanna(3)) born in England, and one son (John(3)) born in Ipswich Mar 5, 1650.

He went to Warner, NH where he built a paper mill and manufactured paper in company with his father-in-law. He then settled at Waterloo Station, NH. which he named, afterwards moved to Manchester, NH. John(6) and Hannah had fifteen children, six daughters (Hannah Bean(7), Miranda Bean(7), Maria Cilley(7), Harriet Bean(7), Susan Johnson(7)and (a daughter who died 1 day old) and nine sons (John Huntingdon(7), Henry(7), Marshall Gunnison(7), Walter Wellington(7), Newell Sherman(7), (Albert Haynes(7), who d. age 1), Albert Haynes7), Caleb Johnson(7), and a son who died at birth.)

Horace5 E. Kimball born March 19, 1857. He was a carpenter by trade. He built two houses on the east side of the Portland Road, just south of the old Bartlett's Mill. Currently, this property is occupied by the Dental Facility and the Health Spa. From the early Grants it appears that, the land that his house was on land granted to Abram4 Kimball. The is also visible on the grant map shown earlier.

I never knew my grandmother. My cousin Ray6 and Lorraine and his brother Ron6 and Daughter has many pictures which they have shared with me. My Dad (Ernest) named his first child after his mother.

Ralph7 Kimball wrote this article for the Biddeford Journal. "Dad, his siblings and their dog Bruno". Ralph7 Kimball's father and his younger siblings had no skimobiles to pull them around in the Kennebunk snow in the late 1880s. "But not to worry - - the dog was a huge Newfoundland, who didn't seem to mind pulling the family around on this homemade sled".

Ralph7 and Kimball family, of Saco, say this photograph taken before the turn of the century of his father. Leroy6 Kimball, far right, with his younger siblings, right to left: Ernest L.6, Clarence6, , Inez6, Bert6 , taken in front of their house in Kennebunk.

    This is the relationship and ancestrial genealogy of the occupants of two cemeteries, dating from Caleb1, born in late sixteen hundreds to Joseph5 born Dec 17, 1807.
    Caleb1, birth date unk., married Beriah Welsh. Caleb's second of nine children, Richard 2,was baptized Mar 25, 1707, m. Catherine Couzens, m. 2nd Aug 6, 1740 Hannah Lord of Berwick, ME. Richard2, died June 1781. The sixth child of Richard2, and Hannah (Lord) was Isaac 3, baptized Sep 13, 1747, m. 20 May 1769, Sarah Durrell, m. 2nd, 29 June 1771, Sarah Stone. They had seven children. Their fifth child, Israel4, was born June 2, 1782. Israel4 married Betsey Durrell. Israel and Betsey had seven children. Joseph5, born Dec 17, 1807.
    Joseph5, married Sally Curtis, Feb 10, 1833 and they had eight children.

    This is about the family of Israel4 and wife Betsey, the son of Isaac3 and wife Sarah (Stone). Israel4, was the fifth of seven children. The final resting place of Israel's4was listed by the State of Maine as behind the Baptist Church in Alwive Section of Kennebunk, Maine. As it turned out the cemetery was actually on the private property adjacent. The owner escorted us to the cemetery. He had cleaned and fixed up the cemetery. He had savalaged the broken stones and placed them on a bed of crusted stone. He had furnished(I understand that made this stones himself), new upright stones to replace the broken ones. The current property owner also lost his wife last spring and she is buried there also.

    Israel4, and Betsey had seven children: 1. Joseph5, born 17 Dec, 1807; 2. Mary5, born 3 Dec 1809; 3. Caroline 5 D., born 29 Jan 1812; 4. Sarah5 L., born 22 Jun 1814, died 20 June 1933; 5. Mary5 N, born 5 Jan 1817; 6. Lucy5 D. born 2 Apr 1820, died 4 May 1912; and 7. Lorenzo5, was born and died 28 Mar. 1823.

    This stone above of Mary D. Kimball who married James Ross, October 24, 1843. According to his stone this was his 2nd marriage, his first wife Sarah, died July 5, 1839 at age 33.

    This first stone is difficult to read but it is of Caroline D., the daughter and 3rd child of Israel and Betsey (Durrell) Kimball. Stone on the left is of Jamin Smith, her husband.

    The following is from Kimball Lane Cemetery which is on private property and is also being very well maintained.

    Remembering the Past WARS and THE PEOPLE THAT SERVED IN THE Wars to save other people of other religions, and other countries, with other languages from being slaughtered. To save other people and in a war in the US to free the slaves. OF PATICULAR INTEREST IN TODAY'S WORLD IS THE CIVIL WAR.

    From Maine History Online I find very interesting facts.

    Approximately, 73,000 Mainers served in the Union Army and Navy during the war, the highest figure in proportion to popultion of any northern state.

    The History Online has this paragraph "MAINE and the CIVIL WAR"

    Governor Israel WASHBURN issued a call for 10 regiments of volunteer infantry and three regiments of Militia to be armed by the State of Maine

    Many served with distinction. Joshua L. Chamberlain of Brewer, Me. best exemplifies Maine's role in the war. He was a Bowdoin College graduate and professor of rhetoric and mordern language at Bowdoin at the time of his enlistment, Chamberlain took part in 24 major battles, was wounded six times, and let a despersate charge at Petersburg in 1864. He is most remembered for his role in the valiant stand taken by the 20th Maine at Little Round Top during the battle of Gettyburg, for which he was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor. Gettysburg was a pivotal battle of the war, bringing to a halt general Robert E. Lee's plan to drive into Union territory and drop down on Piladelphia Baltimore, and Washington. Victory there, he hoped, would encourage peace sentiment in the North and convince Great Britian and Frace to recognize the Confederacy. More than 150,000 soldiers fought in the three-day battle resulting in 50,000 casulties and making Gettysburg the largest battle ever fought in North America. On the first day m holdig action by units of Maine's 2nd Artillery and 16th Infantry helped delay Lee's advance while Union forces found positions.


    The Plaques below lists 164 names of Civil War Veterans from the just over 2100 Citizens in Kennebunk at that time. The placque on the far right is that of 34 Veterans who moved to Kennebunk, after the Civil War.


    The farm (Kimball Farm) had the point that was the hightest altitude in Kennebunk. A man, from the Federal Govt. representing the military, came and requested that the Govt be allowed to build a lookout Tower on that knoll. Dad said no because of his cattle and the number of cars and people coming and going.

    The second highest spot was directly across the street, from our knoll, to property owned by Mr & Mrs Hatch. They lived here just in the summer, and gave the OK for a tower.


    When I was 10 and 11 years old I spent time on this Goverment watchtower pictured above, looking and listening for airplanes, trying to identify it by sight and/or sound, direction of travel (E,W,N,S) and reporting to headquarters in Portland, ME. This was near the end of WWII. The Tower was across the street from the farm. They wanted to build it on the farm because it was the highest elevation in town, but my Dad wouldn't allow it because of the horses going in and out the driveway and vehicles trying to go in and out the driveway. I am 85 yrs old any can still remember the security code to verify caller to Portland, Me. Air security parole headquarters. It was "Echo Papa Papa Two Two Red". It was easy to remember because my sibling and myself always call our father Papa. I still remember when we had to drap Black cloth over our windows every evening, and the Monitors that walked up and down our road every night to make sure we did. I also remember car headlight having the top half of their headlight taped up with black tape so tht vehicles could not be detected from the air. Today, I can't remember a lot of things except in the middle of the night, when I don't need the info anymore.


    It was also about this time of the 1947 forest fires. I was eleven and in the fifth grade. Kennebunk was spared, after scaring everyone in town into the panic mode and exhaustion. My mother and father didn't sleep much. Dad was always watching for live cinders when the wind was in our direction. He had two very large cast iron caldrons filled with water and burlap bags hanging over the edge into the water, just in case we need to kill live embers. The smoke was so thick you could almost taste it and Mom used to wake us after a short sleep in fear of smoke inhalation. My 16 year old brother was fire fighting in Kennebunkport and North Kennebunkport as Biddeford Pool area had fires headed toward and my brother-in law was fighting a fire in Waterboro. As the fire, on its way into West Kennebunk it burned a classmate's home on the Cole road. When the fire came closer our furniture was loaded onto our hay wagon. This method of evacuation was being used because we had been warned about you are loading belonging of threatened homes and their belongings was never to be seen again. The nervous team of horses were readied to be hooked to the wagon. If need be, my sister Inez, was to drive them down onto the turnpike and head South on the still dirt road. The wind shifted and the fire went Northeast jumping the unfinished Maine Turnpike into North Kennebunkport.


    Below is the only Veteran list I could find for World War II. From the Kimball enlistment records, that was furnished by Maine Genealogy, I found that there was seventy-nine Kimball's from Maine. The number of KIMBALLS by County enlistments were as follows.
    1. 3--Aroostook,
    2. 17-Cumberland,
    3. 7--Kennebec,
    4. 1--Knox,
    5. 2--Lincoln,
    6. 9--Oxford,
    7. 13-Penobscot,
    8. 2--Piscataquis,
    9. 1--Sagadahoc,
    10. 3--Somerset,
    11. 1--Waldo,
    12. 20-York,


    Above you will see the names of 155 Kennebunk men and women that serviced the United States of American in the World War One. You will see a picture of Ernest Kimball, my father and two brothers.
