Edward Doty “a youth of London,” came to America on the Mayflower in the service of Stephen Hopkins. Quick of temper, with a “generally litigious if not quarrelsome nature, Edward was party of the second offence committed in Plymouth – a sword and dagger duel with Stephens’ other servant, Edward Lister, 18 June 1621. In 1635, Edward married (apparently as his second wife) a lass of sixteen years, Faith Clarke, by whom he sired six sons and three daughters.
The oldest son, Edward, was a seaman by trade. His descendants, in the middle of the nineteenth century, mostly resided in Connecticut, New York, and Michigan. The second son, John, was a farmer. His descendants, several of whom adopted the “Doten” moniker, resided principally in Massachusetts, but also in Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and Quebec. Thomas, the third son, was also a seaman (a fisherman). He and most of his children and grandchildren lived and died in Plymouth.
Samuel Doty, the fourth son, was “the ancestor of the very large and influential branch of the family, who, from the State of New Jersey, have gone forth as pioneers to the West and the South.” Isaac, the fifth son, moved to Oyster Bay, Long Island. His nineteenth-century descendants were mostly settled in New Jersey, Nova Scotia, Southern New York and Western Connecticut. Edward’s youngest son, Joseph, was among the earliest proprietors of Rochester, Massachusetts. His descendants in the nineteenth century lived mostly in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan.
Notable people in this genealogical history include James D. Doty, territorial governor of Wisconsin and Utah (pp. 723-725); James Otis, the Patriot (p. 47); Mercy Otis Warren, historian of the Revolution (p. 48); Thomas Doty, proprietor of “The Doty Tavern” in Stoughton (p. 273); and Silas Doty, the kleptomaniac (p. 753). The family also contributed a surfeit of loyalists, many of whom removed to Canada.
