Haswell of Bennington

Haswells of Bennington, Vermont

by Todd A. Farmerie


The Bennington Haswell family descends from a navally oriented Haswell Family of Portsmouth, Hampshire, England, and related to Lt. William Haswell, R.N. of Boston.  He was brought to America by his father, and apprenticed, his father then returning.

Anthony HASWELL (William,Anthony,William), born 6 Apr. 1756,  bap. 17 Apr. He was brought to America by his father in 1770, and apprenticed to a potter.  He developed a Revolutionary bent, and as printer's apprentice of Isaiah Thomas, was a member of the Sons of Liberty, composing songs for them, at the same time as his relative Lt. William was supplying the British with intelligence.  His politics were cemented by his witnessing of the Boston Massacre.  He served as publisher of The Massachusetts Spy while Thomas was in the Army, and himself served, but no record of this service has survived.  He later moved to Worcester, Mass., where he married as his first wife, 23 Apr. 1778, Lydia, dau. of Nathan and Lydia (Oakes) Baldwin, born Worcester, 22 Dec. 1759.  He set up briefly at Hartford, before being brought to Bennington Vt. to be its printer and postmaster of Vermont.  His first wife died 30 Apr. 1799, at Bennington.  Shortly thereafter, he was arrested, as one of several Jeffersonian printers, under the Sedition Act and charged with Seditious libel against the government and person of the president of the United States (John Adams).  He was convicted and sentenced to three months and fined $200.  He married second, Betsey, daughter of Silas and Lucy (Knapp) Rice, who died 1815.  He served as publisher the Vermont Gazette for twenty years before his death 26 Mar. 1816, at Bennington.[Spargo; Record of the Family of Anthony Haswell, Anthony Haswell, 1798; Family Records]There were two members of the Haswell family of Portsmouth, England whose descendants in America can be traced.  The first of these, Capt. William Haswell of Boston, had four children who settled in America.  Only one of these children had any issue, two daughters, with whom the Haswell name ended. (From one of these descends e.e.cummings.)  The other Haswell, founding one of the more prominent families of this name in America, was Anthony Haswell, patriot, printer, and postmaster of Vermont.  Born in England, he was brought to America by his father when in his teens.  There, he joined the Sons of Liberty, and became publisher of the Massachusetts Spy, with Isaiah Thomas.  Serving in the revolution, he went lived at Worcester, Mass., and Hartford, Conn., before being invited to Bennington, to be a printer and postmaster.  He was also involved in the Masonic party and Jefferson’s Democratic Republican party.  For this he was imprisoned under the Sedition Act.  He died at Bennington in 1816, leaving eleven surviving children.
