Edward Ball

M, #12895, b. circa 1640, d. 16 August 1714
     Edward Ball was born circa 1640.1,2 He married Mary George, daughter of Peter George and Mary Rowning, circa 1665.1 Edward Ball died on 16 August 1714 at New Shoreham, Block Island, Newport Co., RI.3 He was buried at Old Cemetery, Block Island, Newport Co., RI.2
     "Edward Ball, the first settler of that surname who appears at Block Island."
     "The island had been purchased in 1660 for £400 by sixteen persons, many of whom became permanent settlers in 1661. Among these first settlers was Peter George, the future father-in-law of Edward Ball; and Mr. George received lots 8 and 9 with Simon Ray, in a division of lands in west part of the island, also lot 16 in north part of the island for his sole use. These grants may have decided Edward Ball as to his own location later. There was, perhaps, a white population of fifty persons when Edward Ball first came to the island, with an Indian population several times greater. The records are but meagre that relate to the early history of Block Island, but we find Edward Ball was a freeman there in 1678, and in 1689, when the French privateers made a descent upon the island, it is probable that he suffered from their plundering, as did his neighbors. In 1696 he and Simon Ray were chosen trustees for funds for a harbor. In 1700 the Rev. Samuel Niles was invited to the pastorate of the church at Block Island, and Edward Ball was appointed with Joshua Raymond and Simon Ray to lay out and appraise lands which were to be given Mr. Niles for a house lot. In 1702, June 8th, he was Deputy Warden, and held the office of 'Crowner' (i.e., Coroner). In 1704 he was sheriff."4
     Edward Ball was on a "Freeman" list in the town records in 1684 at New Shoreham, Block Island, Newport Co., RI.5 He left a will on 16 August 1714. Proved August 1714. "He mentioned his wife Mary, sons Peter, John and Edward, daughters Mary Hall, Elizabeth Hall, and Jane Dickens, and grand-daughter Patience Hall. His inventory showed a bull, 4 cows, 4 heifers, 3 steers, 2 calves, 20 sheep, 16 lambs, mare, colt, 8 hogs, etc.".6
     "Edward Ball appears to have been a fishing captain, and there can be little doubt that he is identical with the Edward Ball, aged about 30 years, who was fishing at the Isles of Shoales for Stephen Ford in 1660. In July 1661 he was before the Court at York, Maine, for living away from his wife, and he promised to bring her to Maine. He last occurs in the York records in 1667, when he was a creditor of William Scadlock (Libby's Gen. Dic. of Me. & N.H.) If the two men are identical, Mary George must have been a second wife. The Maine man undoubtedly was a fisherman from one of the coast towns of Devonshire or Cornwall."7
