[13778] Great Grandfather of President Millard Fillmore.

From "Debrett's Presidents of the United States of America,": [John Fillmore's] elder son, also John, was a sea captain and later settled in Norwich, Connecticutt, where he published a work with the lenghty title "A Narrative of John Fillmore on Board the Noted Pirate Vessel Commanded by Captain John Phillips." He married three times and had a large family, dying at Norwich on 22 February 1777.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Following Capt John Fillmore's capture of a pirate ship:

Evidence was taken from other crewmembers and from the two "prisoners at the bar". After the trial the prisoners were taken away and "The Court was cleared and in private."

"Then the Court having duly weighed and maturely considered the evidence, unanimously agreed, and voted, that the said John Fillmore and Edward Cheeseman were "Not Guilty."

The Court awarded John Fillmore a gun, a silver-hilted sword, a curious tobacco box, silver shoe and knee buckles and two gold rings the pirate captains used to wear.

Of the eleven other persons tried, four were found "guilty" and sentenced to be executed. Seven others were found "not guilty."

----------------------------------------------------------------

Information compiled by Gwen Romine:

The record of the trial is in the Massachusetts State Archives, State House, Boston, Volume 63, pages 342 and following; Criminal Trials, May 12, 13, 1724.

John Fillmore was known as Captain John and "Cpt. John Fillmore" is inscribed on his gravestone. He is buried in Plain Hill Cemetery, Franklin, Conn. The rank of 'Captain' was a military one. He was commissioned a Captain of the 7th Military Company in Norwich, May 1750. He was discharged, at his own request, April 29, 1754. (Military Papers in the State Department at Hartford, Conn. Vol. IV, pg. 253, and Vol. V, pg. 176)

The intention of marriage of John Fillmore and Mary Spiller is recorded on November 9, 1724. John also purchased property, from Samuel Griswold, Jr., conveying some 70 acres of Plain Hill in Norwich, on November 9, 1724. He bought the property for 103 pounds. Plain Hill was in the part of Norwich known as West Farms. On May 2, 1786, this area was incorporated as Franklin, named in honor of Benjamin Franklin.

John and Mary had four children, John; Abigail; Mary, and Henry. Mary (Spiller) Fillmore died following the birth of Henry on June 1733. It is unknown where she is buried.

An incident recorded in Caulkins, History of Norwich:

"In 1756, three sons of Capt. John Fillmore, Jr., viz., Nathaniel, Comfort and Amaziah, were brought before Mr. Justice Huntington charged with driving the rate collector from their father's house, armed with clubs and making use of threats and abusive language. Being minors, they were released without penalty, but the record intimates that their father was implicated in the misconduct of his sons." The family was probably Separatists and refused to pay rates for the support of the regular ministry.

The 'regular ministry' would be that of the Episcopal Church. Several Fillmore families of this and the next two generations were staunch supporters of the Methodist-Episcopal Church. Later generations of the Fillmores were predominately Baptists. In the earliest Nova Scotia Census Records extant many Fillmores designated themselves as "Dissenters" in the column indicating religious affiliation.

Of the three sons of John Fillmore, Nathaniel had a distinguished record as a soldier; Amaziah joined the expedition to Cuba in 1762, was present at the reduction of Havana, where he died shortly after of fever. Comfort continued to reside on his father's homestead and had a family of fourteen children.

Dorcas, second wife of John Fillmore, died on March 16, 1759, she was 45 years of age. Their youngest child, Deliverance was known as 'Dillie' and was born on January 2, 1757. Capt. John Fillmore married, third, widow Mary Roach on January 1760. They did not have any children. Mary died on April 23, 1798.

Capt. John Fillmore died in Norwich (Franklin), Ct., on February 22, 1777. He was buried in Plain Hill Cemetery beside his wife, Dorcas. The inscription of his gravestone read:

"Behold and see as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you must be
Prepare for death & follow me."

John's homestead went to Comfort Fillmore and subsequently to his youngest son, Comfort Day Fillmore. The gun, awarded to John from the pirate ship, also went to Comfort Day. Comfort Day later resided in Lisbon, Conn.

In his will, dated September 19, 1774, Capt. John Fillmore mentions his wife Mary, and all of his surviving children, fourteen in number. His estate was appraised on March 14, 17, 19 and 20, 1777.

John Fillmore was the first child of John and Abigail (Tilton) Fillmore that was born at Ipswich, Mass., on March 18, 1702. He was referred to as the first known American-born Fillmore. John Fillmore was widely known because of his experiences on board the pirate ship under the command of the notorious Captain Philips.

The account of Capt John Fillmore's capture of a pirate ship is actually autobiographical. I don't think any summary can truly capture the vivid personal descriptions and colourful Olde English phrases that he uses in his 23 page narrative. Take, for example, this description of one of John's interactions with the pirate Phillips:

"Phillips charged me, as he had done my friend, with contriving to betray him, and take the ship. The accusation was true enough, but I concluded a lie was warrantable in that case, and consequently replied, that I knew nothing of any conspiracy either against him or his crew. I had prepared to make resistance, in case he offered any abuse; but he had a pistol concealed under his coat, which he presented to my breast, and snapped it, before I had time to make any evasion; but happily for me it missed fire. He drew it back, cocked, and presented it again, but I struck it aside with my hand, so that it went off by my side, without doing any injury.
I thought of knocking out his brains with the handspike that lay near me, but I knew it would be instant death for me, and therefore concluded if he would leave me, I would not meddle with him at that juncture. He then swung his sword over my head, damned me, and bid me go about my business, adding, that he only did it to try me. These last words raised my spirits one degree higher than they had been before; for I confess I thought that snapping a loaded pistol at a man's breast, was a harsh mode of trial, and such an one as I had by no means been accustomed to before. I stopped to take up the handspike, thinking to try him with the butt end of that; but upon a moments consideration, concluded to let the matter rest a little longer, and watch for a more convenient opportunity to resent the injury. The pistol missing fire when snapped at my breast, and then going off by my side, was a strong indication to me that Providence had interposed graciously in my preservation--that our final deliverance from the barbarity of the savage Phillips, and his abandoned banditti, might be more speedily effected."

The narrative is in the book: "A True Account of the Singular Sufferings of John Fillmore and others, On Board a Noted Pirate Ship--with an account of their daring Enterprise, and happy Escape from the tyranny of that desperate Crew, by Capturing their Vessel." Utica: Printed for Russell Potter, 1851.
--I found the book at the National Library of Congress Genealogical Reading Room, with call number G537.F5N3. 1851.
--The book also includes a biography of the "Hon. Millard Fillmore of Buffalo."

My wife (and kids) descend from Capt John, President Millard Fillmore's great grandfather.

For the price of sending me a gedcom or genealogy report showing your connection to Captain John, and sending your address, I'll mail you a copy.
