The life of Tristram Coffin of Nantucket, Mass. Founder of the family line in America

by

Allen Coffin

Nantucket: Hussey & Robinson, (1881) 64 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

Tristram Coffin (1605-1681) was born to Peter and Joanna (Kember) Coffin on 11 March 1605 in the parish of Brixton near Plymouth. He was of the landed gentry and married Dionis Stevens in 1630. They had nine children, the first five born in England. The Coffins immigrated to Massachusetts and 1659 where he led a group of investors who bought Nantucket from Thomas Mayhew for thirty pounds and two beaver hats. He became a prominent citizen of the settlement. The book presents "reminiscences and anecdotes of some of his numerous descendants and some historical information concerning the ancient families named Coffyn". This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally by Google from a copy in the Harvard University Library collection and can be downloaded from HathiTrust. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
