Descendants of John P. & Abigail Rich Westcott

Son of Nicholas Wescott III and Abigail (Unknown)

In 1975, I became very interested in my family history. After a little research, my grandmother Dorothy Wescott told me I should contact Eula Connelly, my grandfather Vernon's first cousin. I did, and she provided me with crucial first information about my Wescott ancestors, and propelled me headlong into this project. As a result, this page is dedicated to the memory of Eula May (Wescott) Connelly. Eula was my first cousin twice removed.

In December of 2001, my son bought me this domain name for a Christmas present, and I was able to post my family tree on the Internet, for all the world to see. It has proved invaluable in my research: no less than six 'new' cousins have found it, contacted me and provided new information about themselves and other family members. The names of these cousins and others with whom I am in contact appear in green in the family tree below.

If you see your name listed, or know something about any of the family names listed below, please send me an e-mail, doug@wescotts.org.

July 7, 2013:Kathy and I have moved to New England! Living in Maine, I'm excited to be so much closer to Vermont, and my East Coast relatives, and get serious once again about my genealogy research. Oh, and we are very excited about living so close to our No. 1 grandchild, Henry Oscar McCannell.

October 3, 2009: I return to Vermont for the first time since 2002. I spent eight days visiting new cousins, doing research, and looking for the gravesites of my ancestors.

June 18, 2009: A wonderful new first: Karen C. , a descendant of Nicholas Westcott Jr. and Phebe Hines, the first descendants I've ever heard of from this line, found this website and contacted me. She is descended from the brother of my ggggrandfather John P. Westcott. This is really fantastic.

October 28, 2008: Welcome Rick Butler and other 'new' cousins from the Effie Rich Westcott branch of the family! These cousins are the second descendants of John A. Wescott I've made contact with this year. Rick found my webpage and solved one of my "Top Four Wescott Mysteries!"

April 14, 2008: I finally make contact with descendants of John A. Wescott! They are the first descendants of his I've found, and they have the first Westcott Family Bible I've ever heard of, beginning with Harry John Wescott.

John P. Westcott, my ggggrandfather, was born in 1807, probably in Rutland County Vermont. He married Abigail Rich, b. 1809, also probably born in Rutland County Vermont. According to the death record of John, his parents were Nicholas and Abigail Westcott, of Rutland. This death record provides the first and only lead I have so far on the parents of John. Click on Nicholas to see the presently accepted record of his family.

This connection was enough to have me admitted as a full, regular member of the Society of Stukely Westcott Descendants of America, the only organization I am aware of with regard to the surnames Wescott or Westcott.


In 2000, I found the final resting places of John and Abigail and their son Davis and daughter Polly, all in the Egypt Cemetery of East Fairfield, Franklin County, Vermont. Davis died at the age 25 of an unknown illness, while serving in the Vermont Volunteers, 12th Infantry Regiment, Company E; Polly was buried as a Westcott, at age 30. Given these facts, I feel strongly that neither Davis nor Polly produced descendants.
Their brother and my gggrandfather Hiram Nichols Wescott enlisted in the Vermont Volunteers with brother Davis on September 1, 1862, and was discharged for disability on April 25, 1863.

I also visited the cemetery of St. George, Chittenden County, and found the grave sites of Hiram, his wife, and her parents and family.

John A. Westcott, the last child of John and Abigail, married and later moved just across the Canadian border to Glen Sutton, Quebec, and I have some of his descendants documented, thanks to an Internet friend.

In 2008, I finally made contact with not one but TWO descendants of John A. Westcott, truly a banner year!

Which all brings me to:

  • why does the extensive genealogical record of the family of Nicholas and Abigail Wescott show no record of John P. Westcott? Was he disowned? Is his death certificate in error?
  • where are John P. Westcott's parents Nicholas and Abigail Wescott buried?
  • are there any living relatives of the other seven children of Nicholas and Abigail Wescott? Yes, at least one! Karen C. found my website in June, 2009, and contacted me. I'll visit her on my Genealogy Trip in Sept 2009. She is my fifth cousin.

My search continues.

Earl Conway Westcott
Earl was born August 5, 1906 in Glen Sutton, Brome County, Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. What happened to him? Did he marry, have children?

The following citation is from page 55 of the book, "The Westcott Family Tree---Westcott Descendants from Stukely and Juliana," A Continuation and Some Corrections of Work Published 1932 and 1939 by Roscoe Leighton Whitman, etc., 1999, by Edna Jay Lewis.

According to the notes, the record of the listed children was provided to the Town Clerk in March of 1806. My oldest proven ancestor John was born in 1807. It's curious that the birth of the children are evenly spaced until Jeremiah, at which time there is a 14 year gap, right where John would appear.

256. Nicholas6 Wescott III (Nicholas5 Westcott, Nicholas4, Josiah3, Jeremiah2, Stukely1), b. circa 1774 in Rhode Island; married Abigail circa 1793; died before 1820 in Vermont. Abigail was born circa 1774.
(Childrens births in Clarendon records "recorded March 26th, 1806 attested by JnO Hills, Town Clerk.")

Children of Nicholas Wescott III and Abigail include:

i. Hipsibah Westcott, b. 4 Aug 1794
ii. Job Prescott Wescott, b. 20 Jun 1796; married Sarah Manley; married Rachel Billings.
iii. Nicholas Westcott Jr., b. 29 Jan 1799 in Clarendon, Rutland Co., VT; married Nabby Gibson; married Phebe Hines.
iv. Lovice Wescott, b. 27 Feb 1801.
v. Josias Wescott, b. 19 May 1803; died 10 Jan 1872
vi. Jeremiah Wescott, b. 19 Jul 1805.
Here is the gap where my ancestor John P. Westcott was born, in 1807, according to his death certificate, listing his parents as Nicholas and Abigail Westcott of Rutland, VT.
vii. Abner Wescott, b. 1 Jan 1819; married Dimice Reed; married Belinda Herrington.

5. Silvia Miranda Isham b: 6 Feb 1846, St. George, Chittenden Cty., VT

The settlement of the town of St. George was begun in the year 1784 by the arrival of Joshua Isham and his wife from Colchester CT. They settled in the western part of the town, and resided for some time in a house which Mr. Isham and a friend constructed in a single day, and in which Mrs. Isham lived for six months without seeing the face of another of her sex. Mr. Isham was drowned in Hinesburg Pond in December, 1837. Early in 1785 Elnathan Higbee and Zirah Isham, with their families, settled here; and within the next four or five years came Jeheil Isham, etc."
