Hannah Brown (F)
b. circa 1745, d. 24 December 1841

     Her married name was Jones. Hannah Brown From historic site:

Hannah Brown Davis Jones Leighton:

Hannah Brown may have been the daughter of Elisha and Elizabeth Davis
Brown. A baptism for Hannah Brown was recorded in Cambridge, Mass on March
26, 1746. She married (1) Isaac Davis of Acton and on April 19, 1775 she
became the first widow of the Revolutionary War. Hannah married (2) Samuel
Jones of Acton and (3) Francis Leighton of Westford, MA. Hannah had nine
children from her first two marriages, two died in their infancy. Her long
life is full of many colorful stories from surviving ship wreck off the
cost of Cape Cod to running a children daycare or 'Dame School' in her
home. Hannah died on December 24, 1841 at the age of 96. She is buried in
Woodlawn Cemetery between the original burial spot of her first husband,
Capt. Isaac Davis and their two children, Hannah and Paul Davis and her
second husband Mr. Samuel Jones.

This surely indicates she was not the mother of any of Francis LEIGHTON's
children, but did marry him, later in life.

Richard Leighton (M)
b. before 1635, d. circa 1683
Pop-up Pedigree

     Richard Leighton Of Rowley, Massachusetts. (Which, simply put, means there's not much about this man published. The 'famous' Leighton family hails from Dover, NH and their progenitor was Thomas. Thomas may have been old enough to be Richard's father, but there is no record indicating he had a son by this name, nor am I offering any suggestion to that connection. However, there may be a familial one, if there is ever a connection made to the European line. Perhaps Richard was a nephew or other 'relation' to Thomas of Dover. Would not surprise me.

Gazing at historical beginnings of towns, and town 'elders' or 'first families', Rowley claims amongst its early settlers, Richard
Leighton.

A man by that name had a house lot for Rowley in 1650. Following is listing of Rowley inhabitants, as listed in 1643. Note that Richard, at the end of the list, received his lot 'soon afterwards'.

'On the 'tenth of the eleventh Anno Dni 1643, Thomas Nelson, Edward Carlton, Humphrey Reynon & Francis Parrot made a survey of the town and a register of the several house lots of from 1 1/2 to 6 acres then laid out to the settlers. They were as follows: On Bradford Street, Thomas Ellethrop, John Dresser, Hugh Chaplin, Peter Cooper, Thomas Sumner, John Burbank, Thomas Palmer, William Wilde, William Jackson, Hugh Smith, Michael Hopkinson, John Boynton, William Boynton, Thomas Dickinson, Joseph Jewett, Maxemilian Jewett, Jane Grant, John Spofford, George Kilborne & Margaret Stanton whose lot contained only one acre. On Wethersfield street, John Remington, James Barker, William Stickney, William Scales, Matthew Boyes, Jane Brocklebank, Thomas Mighill, Margery Shove, Humphrey Reynor, & Ezekiel Rogers who had six acres. On Holmes street John Miller, John Jarrat, Francis Parrot, Edward Carleton, Henry Sands, Thomas Leaver, John Trumble, John Haseltine, Thomas Tenney, Robert Haseltine, Richard Swan, Thomas Lilforth, Richard Thorlay, Frances Lambert, Robert Hunter, William Acy, Thomas Miller, William Harris, John Harris, Thomas Harris, John Newmarch, William Bellingham, Thomas Nelson, Thomas Barker, Sebastian Briggam, George Abbot, Edward Bridges, Cousins Crosby & Richard Nalam. Sixteen other lots were soon afterwards laid out to the following persons, viz.: John Smith, Mark Prime, William Tenney, Nicholas Jackson, RICHARD LEIGHTON, John Pearson, Edward Sawer, James Bailey, Richard Holmes, Thomas Burkley, John Tillison, Samuel Bellingham, Thomas Sawer, Daniel Harris, William Law & John Hill.

The common lands of the town were assigned to the settlers in proportion to the extent of their respective house-lots. A military company was soon formed of which Sebastian Brigham was appointed captain. It was to be drilled eight days during the year, and the fine for absence was five shillings per day. The people early distinguished themselves for the manufacture of cotton, hemp and flax cloth. 'Our supplies from England,' says Winthrop, in 1643, 'failing much, men began to look about them and fell to a manufacture of cotton, whereof we had store from Barbadoes, and of hemp & flax wherein Rowley, to their great commendation, exceeded all other towns.'

Richard 'left a will' in 1682, so presume passed shortly thereafter. He was born before 1635. He was the son of Mr. Leighton and Mrs. Leighton. Richard Leighton married Mary UNKNOWN on 14 November 1650 at Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA. Richard Leighton died circa 1683 at Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA.
