    1. [S1242] Notes of June Power, Our First American Grandfather: Peter Aspinwall.
      Peter Aspinwall, the founder of the Aspinwall family in this country, was born about 1612. Peter Aspinwall came from Toxteth Park near Liverpool, England to Dorchester, Massachusetts in the company of 4000 people who immigrated in the year 1630. No other mention of him is made until May 1645 when he was made a freeman in Dorchester, Massachusetts. He was then 33 years old.
      In 1650 he moved to Muddy River, now known as Brookline, Massachusetts. He purchased a farm of 150 acres. On this farm, in 1660, he built the house which was the family homestead for many generations. The house stood until 1891 and was located on what is now called Aspinwall Avenue.

      Peter Aspinwall was married three times. His first wife was Alice Sharp. His second was "unknown" Morrill, who he lived with for 16 years with no children. His third wife's name was Frember Palfrey, who was our first American grandmother, and it is from her that we are all descended.

      Peter and Remember had eleven children, including one set of twins, in this order:
      Samuel - November 4, 1662
      Peter - June 4, 1664
      Nathaniel - June 5, 1666
      Thomas - January 21, 1668
      Mehitable - September 14, 1669
      Elizabeth - November 21, 1671
      Eleazar - October 9, 1673
      Joseph - October 9, 1673
      Job - February 27. 1675
      Mary - August 4, 1677
      Timothy - April 19, 1682

      The number 8 child, Joseph, is our second grandfather.
      The exact date of Peter Aspinwall's death is not known, but it was between November 20, 1687, and December 9, 1687. The number of direct descendants of Peter Aspinwall in the 1980s was over 1300 people and has since grown.

    2. [S1251] Find A Grave, Palfrey Aspinwall, https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/123152058/remember-aspinwall.
      Second wife of Peter Aspinwall. They married on November 12, 1661 or 1662.

      Peter Aspinwall was the first Aspinwall to arrive in the colonies in 1630, from Toxteth Park now a part of Liverpool, England. No date of birth for Peter Aspinwall is given but it is said that he was born in 1612. He became a freeman (a voter) in May or June 1645, and at which time he deposed that he was born in 1612. He lived in Dorchester, MA at the time. He married Alice Sharp on April 4, 1645. They remained childless for 16 years.

      However, he married Remember Palfrey on February 12, 1661 or 1662, who became the mother of: Samuel (November 10, 1662); Peter (June 4, 1664); Nathaniel (June 5, 1666); Thomas (January 21, 1667); Mehitable (November 21, 1671); Eleazar and Joseph (twins born October 9, 1673; Job (baptized Feb. 27, 1675 but died young); Mary (August 4, 1677) and Timothy (b. April 19, 1682 but died young of smallpox).

      Peter's date of death is sometimes recorded as Dec. 1, 1687. Other records are vague, but the will was entered on Dec. 9, 1687 and his will was settled for probate on January 20, 1691. It appears he did die early Dec. 1687, soon after writing his will.

      He settled and lived, mostly, in Muddy River, MA. He was the town surveyor and constable. Muddy River became a part of Brookline, MA.

      Her parents were Peter and Edith Palfrey. She has been credited with being an ancestor to the Winchester (gunmaking) family and to Franklin Delano Foosevelt.
