John2 Dane and His Wives

"John2 Dane (John1) who was born about 1612-3, doubtless at Berkhampstead, co. Herts, England, died at Ipswich on September 29, 1684. He married first in England, probably in Essex, after 1629 and before 1635 Eleanor Clark who was the mother of all of his children and he married secondly before March, 1676, Alice (Dutch) Newman."[1]

John Dane's Career in New England

"As has been shown John2 Dane emigrated in or before the early part of 1635. [Robert Charles Anderson did not include a sketch of this John Dane in The Great Migration series, indicating that he did not find sufficient evidence to conclude that Dr. Dane was in New England prior to 1636.] … Some John Deane became a freeman on June 2, 1641, and that is usually believed to have been John1 though sometimes assigned to John2, while others claim that John2 became a freeman as late as May 24, 1682, but that must have pertained to John3 for on December 2, 1679, John2, called senior, was recognized as a freeman having the right to have his vote on town affairs counted and recorded. …

In 1648 John2 subscribed two shillings toward compensation for Maj. Denison. That year he was chosen as one of four surveyors for the town and was to view a parcel of land near Chebacco Falls. … 1657 John2 was chosen constable and in 1661 he lost his home by fire. He served on trial juries in 1647, 1649, 1651, 1654, 1662, 1664 and was honored by being chosen on grand juries at least five different years — the first time in 1654 … — and serving also in 1660, 1665, 1675 and 1681. His service as selectman covered at least the years 1664-9, 1676 and 1682. He served endless times as a witness to wills or deeds, as overseer of wills and appraisor of inventories. In six different depositions during his life John2 testified as to his age showing his birth to have been in 1613 or a trifle earlier. …

He must have been ailing in 1667 for in April that year, at the age of fifty-four he was released from training on condition that he should pay six shillings eight pence per year for the use of the military company, but in March, 1676, he was fully released. …

In 1677 John2 was a tithing man and continued so in 1678. … Being called Docktor Dane, he took the required oath of allegiance in 1678."[1]

The Estate of John2 Dane

"The will of John2 Dane called "Chirugion" dated May 31, 1684, gave to his wife Alice, during the term of her life that new house he had built on the land which he had bought (in 1677) from Daniel1 Hovey, which was to be kept in repair by the testator's son John3. To that son he gave the farm which he had bought of Richard Hubbard, while his books and manuscripts were to be divided between sons John3 and Philemon2, the latter to divide them and the former "to chuse." He made bequests to his daughters Elizabeth3 and Sarah3 and to grandchildren Mary Chandler and Daniel3 Hovey, of whom the latter was to receive £30 when he became of age. His will was probated on September 30, 1684, and the inventory showed an estate of over £469. In 1698 John3 and Philemon3 became guardians of two minor children of their sister Sarah (Dane) Warner."[1]
