The Shepardson Family

Excerpt from The Shepardson Family: A Record of the Early Generations in America An abstract of the will and the inventory of the estate of this pioneer Shepardson have been printed as well as certain. Orders of the General Court about his property. [in N. E. Gen. Hist. Soc. Reg] The second Daniel followed the trade of his father, making his home at Malden, Mass., for some years. His name appears as one of a number who signed a petition to Sir William Phipps, I 7 October, 1694, praying to be permitted to establish a settlement in Attleboro, Mass. He seems to have owned land there as early as 1660. He took a prominent part in the town's affairs. With this removal from Malden the Shepardson family found its home in a tract of land called Rehoboth North Purchase, which in cluded what later became the towns of Cumberland, Rhode Island, and Attleboro, Norton, and Mansfield, Mass., places in which the family has been represented almost continuously for more than two hundred years. The early records of Attleboro, Rehoboth, and Cumberland seem faulty and there is considerable confusion in the first few generations, but there is every indication that all Americans named Shepardson may be traced back to Attleboro, except a few recent immigrants from England.
