Major Nicholas Sewall1

M, b. 1655, d. April 1737
     Major Nicholas Sewall was Roman Catholic. He was born in 1655 in England.1 He was the son of Colonel Henry Sewall and Jane Lowe.2 Major Nicholas Sewall emigrated in 1661 to Maryland as a minor with his parents. He married Susanna Burgess, daughter of Col. William Burgess and Sophia Ewen.3 On 5 February 1682 he and John Darnall were commissioned Secretaries of the province of Maryland and took the oath of office the same day (Md. Archives, xvii, 130-131). This office which carried with it a seat in the Council, Major Sewall held until 1689. In 1684 Lord Baltimore, being about to leave the Province for England, appointed his young son, Benedict Leonard, Governor of Maryland, but as the latter's extreme youth rendered the appointment purely formal, the real management of affairs was committed to a board of Deputy Governors. The commission to this board was issued in May 1684, and Major Nicholas Sewall was included in it (Md. Archives, xvii, 249). In consequence of the revolution of 1689 Major Sewall was obliged to vacate all his offices and retire to private life upon his estates in St. Mary's County.4 Major Nicholas Sewall and Susanna Burgess were living on 11 October 1705 when she joined her husband in a deed.3 Major Nicholas Sewall died in April 1737 in Mattapany, St. Mary's County, Maryland.

Nicholas Lewis Sewall SJ1

M, b. 9 December 1745, d. 14 March 1834
     Nicholas Lewis Sewall SJ. President of Stonyhurst 1808-1813 & 1816-1817. He was born on 9 December 1745 in Maryland. He was the son of Nicholas Lewis Sewall.1 Nicholas Lewis Sewall SJ died on 14 March 1834 in Worcester at the age of 88.2

He was born in Maryland, 9th December. 1745. After studying Humanities, at St Omer's College, he entered the Novitiate of the Society, at Ghent, 31st of October, 1766. The year after the suppression of the Order, viz. in July. 1774, he was sent to the Preston Mission, as assistant to the Rev. John Jenison, and there he continued for nine years. In 1783, he removed to Eccleston Hall, where he was chaplain for three years. In 1787 he was appointed to the charge of the faithful, at Scholes, near Prescott, vice F. Peter Westby, and this mission so rapidly improved under his zealous auspices, as to justify him to commence the erection of a spacious chapel, and a convenient house for the incumbent. This respectable establishment retains the name of Portico, which was originally assigned it by the late Rev. Wm. Meynell, from the circumstance of the Colonnade at the Chapel entrance. This Chapel was opened for public worship in May, 1790. F. Sewall retired from this laborious mission, to Stonyhurst College, at Michaelmas, 1808, and rendered much valuable service to that community. On the death of Rev. Charles Plowden, in the summer of 1821, F. Sewell succeeded to the office of Provincial; and his government was characterised by prudence and decision of purpose, and by a spirit of improving chapels. Resigning his office in February, 1826, he took charge of the little College, at Hodder Place, for some time; and then proceeded to Worcester, to assist his highly valued friend, the Rev. Joseph Tristram; and had the comfort of seeing the New, large, and handsome Chapel of that city, opened with solemnity, on the 16th of July, 1829.
F. Sewall was a man of regular and retired habits, much given to prayer and mortification: yet always cheerful and obliging. The progress and prosperity of our holy Religion was the object nearest and dearest to his heart; and indeed he had great cause to rejoice and exult in the Lord, especially when he witnessed the wonderful propagation of the Catholic Faith in his native land. When the united States of America were subject to the English Domination, the very exercise of the Catholic Religion was degraded, proscribed and persecuted; but no sooner had these States established their independence of the mother country, than they proclaimed universal liberty of conscience, and afforded Religion itself Fair play. F. Sewall survived to behold Baltimore erected into a Metropolitan See with eleven Suffragan Bishopricks. I have heard him say, that he remembered the time, when the Catholics had not even a private room in Baltimore, where they were suffered to assemble for prayer; and he lived to see it embellished with a noble Catholic Cathedral, and seven Catholic Parish Churches, with Bells inviting the numerous faithful to the celebration of their Religious Rites ! ! The death of F. Sewall, was like his life, most edifying to men, honourable to religion and precious in the sight of God. He calmly surrendered his soul to its Creator, on the 14th of March, 1834, in the 89th year of his age; and his remains were deposited in the Cemetery, adjoining the Worcester Chapel.
F. Sewall in 1822, had printed at Liverpool, in an Octavo Volume of 526 pages. "Select Lives of Saints from the work of the Reverend Alban Butler." It is a very judicious selection. Catholic Magazine, of April, 1834 reprinted in Collections towards illustrating the Biography of the Scotch, English, and Irish Members, S.J., Exeter, 1838.

ELLOREE — Norman Kinsley Sewall, D.O., peacefully passed away September 27, 2007. His 98 years were filled with the joys of his family, his work as a physician and a strong devotion to the Baptist church.
Born in Melrose, MA, May 19, 1909, he was the only child of Edgar Daniel Sewall and his devoted wife, Sylvia Tobey Robinson Sewall. In 1927, he graduated from Bloomfield High School in Bloomfield, NJ. During his high school years, he became one of the youngest Eagle Scouts of his time and was awarded Silver and Gold Palms.
Norman continued his education at Kirksville College of Osteopathy and Surgery and received his degree in 1931. He was a founding father of the West Essex General Hospital in Livingston, NJ. He was a member of the American Osteopathic Association for more than 70 years and the former president of the Eastern States Osteopathic Society of Proctology. For 41 years, he had a private medical practice in Bloomfield, NJ. He was one of those dedicated physicians who made house calls when patients were too ill to come to his office.
In 1932, he married his beloved first wife, Addie Belle Couch Sewall. She predeceased him in 1993 after 61 years of marriage. Together they had three sons, Kenneth Norman, Donald Kinsley and Edward Arthur. He spent many hours hiking and camping with his sons.

Norman Sewall Died Saturday of Heart Trouble.
Bethel, July 31.—In the decease of Norman Sewell on Saturday afternoon last, Royalton lost one of its most respected and valued citizens. Mr. Sewall, in apparently good health, went to the barn about five o'clock and at half past five was found prostrated. At first it was presumed death was the result of an accident, but Dr. Greene, who responded to the call, failed to find any indications of such. Death was due to heart trouble.
Mr. Sewall was a life-long farmer, and for several years was in the creamery and lumber business. Greatly esteemed by his fellow townsmen, he was elected to the office of selection for five terms, school director eight terms, which office he held at the time of his death, and in 1900 represented his town in the lower bouse of the legislature and served on the grand list committee.
He leaves a wife and daughter. The Barre Daily Times, 31 July 1905.6
