An American Family History

Estey, Kimball, and Towne Families

Ancestors of Aaron Estey

Aaron Estey was born in 1698/99 in Topsfield, Massachusetts. His ancestors were some of New England's earliest Puritan settlers. A Puritan was a member of a religious group in the 16th and 17th centuries which advocated "purity" of worship and doctrine. Puritans were persecuted in England and came to America so they would be free to practice their religion.

The Kimballs came on the ship Elizabeth which sailed from Ipswich, England in April, 1634. Jeffrey Estey was granted land in Salem in 1636. William Towne brought his family to Salem by 1640.

Aaron's grandmother, Mary Towne Estey, was executed for witchcraft in Salem.
