Stanley Darke Sewall1

M, #15018, b. 11 September 1939, d. 3 July 2022
     Stanley Darke Sewall was born on 11 September 1939 in York, Maine.2 He was the son of George Norman Sewall and Bertine Margaret Darke.1 Stanley Darke Sewall died on 3 July 2022 in York, Maine, at the age of 82.3

Stanley D Sewall, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and avid Red Sox fan passed away July 3, 2022 at the age of 82 after a prolonged illness. Stanley was born September 11, 1939 in York, Maine. He graduated from York High School in 1957 having lettered in baseball, basketball, cross country and football. He was quite an accomplished athlete in High School, even competing in a statewide basketball tournament, finishing third in the free throw event. And more than once his name was lauded in the local paper for his skill as a tailback and ‘star of the game’ in football. Later in life he used his knowledge and love of sports to coach baseball for his son and help his somewhat less enthusiastic daughters to play.
He went on from high school to attended Maine Maritime Academy, graduating in 1960 with a Bachelor of Marine Science. This education led to him accepting a job on cargo ships and sailing all around the world - he often referred to his ‘trips to the orient’ and his family still has some of the wonderful items he brought home from his travels abroad. On a blind date in 1962 he met his future bride Diane A. Blethen. They married May 25, 1963 and went on to have five children and live in 6 houses in 5 states over the next 59 years. After the excitement of sailing around the world once he got married he settled down and he began his career in Gypsum, manufacturing wallboard for National Gypsum, Georgia Pacific and LaFarge over the years. He and wife Diane also built up a respectable business in antiques and collectibles and traveled the states going to glass and Antique shows together as well as having a shop in Red Hook, NY.
Stanley was loved by all who knew him - people loved him for his kindness, fairness and wonderful sense of humor. He loved a good laugh and was always quick to tell a joke. He was always ready and willing to help. His wife and children will be forever grateful to him for his patience, guidance, and unconditional love. We will miss his wonderful laugh and bright blue eyes.
Stanley is survived by his wife Diane Sewall née Blethen, his five children, Mallory O’Shea of Poughkeepsie, NY, Jennifer (Sewall) and husband Philip Elwyn of Atlanta, Georgia, Mary (Sewall) and husband Stephen Berkel of Houston, TX, Jeremy and wife Lisa Sewall of Wellesley, MA and Amanda (Sewall) and husband Mark Holstein of Sheffield, MA as well as his brothers George Ellsworth and wife Paula Sewall and Michael and wife Roberta Dow, both of York, ME. He was the proud Grampy (‘P’) to 13 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. He was the son of George N Sewall and Bertie Dow née Darke, who both preceded him in death. He was also preceded in death by his stepmother Ethel “Babe” Sewall née Chapman and his step father Charles Dow.2

Stephen Sewall

M, #67, b. 14 December 1702, d. 10 September 1760
Stephen Sewell (1702-1760)
     Stephen Sewall was born on 14 December 1702 in Salem.1 He was the son of Major Stephen Sewall and Margaret Mitchell. Stephen Sewall was baptised on 20 December 1702 by Rev. W. Noyes.2 He graduated in 1721 from Harvard.1 He died on 10 September 1760 in at his residence, Boston, at the age of 57 "dies estate insolvent"; "died bankrupt, probably through involvement in his brother's (Jonathan) speculations" according to a letter written by President John Adams.3

Sewall Stephen, son of Stephen Sewall, esq. was born in Salem, in December, 1702. He was graduated at Harvard College, 1721, and then took the charge of a school at Marblehead. The office of a grammar master ought to be accounted honourable. It is the most useful employment, and some of the greatest men in this country have thus begun their publick course. Mr. Sewall was chosen tutor in 1628, and continued in that office till the year 1739, when he was elevated to a seat on the bench of judges. His character was very eminent as a scholar. Dr. Chauncy, who was his classmate, and whose judgement none will dispute, speaks of him, as a man of first rate talents. "Quickness of apprehension," says he, "and a capacity to look thoroughly into a subject, were united to him in the highest degree I ever saw in any of my acquaintance. One could scarcely begin to mention a train of thought, but he would at once perceive the whole of what was going to be said ; and if it was a disputable point, had in readiness what was proper to be said in answer." He studied divinity, and was an excellent preacher, but did not incline to settle in the ministry. Having turned his attention to law, his wisdom and knowledge were so conspicuous, that he was recommended by the first gentlemen of the profession, as the most proper person for a vacant place of the superior court. Judge Dudley was then chief justice; and, upon his death, he was appointed his successor, though he was not the senior of the surviving judges. His reputation was high when he first went upon the bench, but in this superior station he gained more applause. " He preserved a great decorum in the court. He moderated the debates with a becoming calmness and dignity, in conjunction with a strict impartiality; shewing himself at once the man of honour and spirit, the knowing lawyer, and upright judge.
This great and good man was taken off in the midst of his usefulness. The powers of his mind were in full vigour ; as a judge, he was held in admiration, and one of the most learned and useful members of his majesty's council. To this office he was elected when he was chief justice. He would have been chosen some years before, but could not be persuaded to accept the place. He departed this life, Sept. 10, 1760, aged 58.
No one's death ever excited a more general sympathy. He was as much beloved for his good qualities, as admired for his superior wisdom. His polite and elegant manners gave a charm to the virtues of his life. It was remembered, likewise, how much he had dispersed and given to the poor! He was so kind to his relations and friends, and all who applied to him for help, "that he outdid his proper capacity." Two orphan children of his brother, Mitchel Sewall, esq. were under his immediate care. It was his intention to give them every advantage of education. The loss to them was irreparable.
Judge Sewall died a bachelor. He was a member of Dr. Mayhew's church. The Dr. printed the sermon he preached after his death, which may appear too much in the strain of eulogy ; but he observes, that the memory of wise and just men ought to be praised with all ardour of expression. "It seems but just and equitable," the Dr. adds, "that he, who never spoke evil of any one, but honoured all men, and delighted to give all their due share of praise, should, at least, when he is dead and gone, be praised by all in his turn; and so much the rather because he would not willingly suffer any to commend him while living, which was the truth concerning this excellent person."

Professor Stephen Sewall

M, #81, b. 4 April 1734, d. 23 July 1804
     Professor Stephen Sewall. First Hancock Professor of Hebrew and Oriental languages at Harvard.1 He was born on 4 April 1734 in York, Maine.1,2 He was the son of Nicholas Sewall and Mehitable Storer. Professor Stephen Sewall graduated in 1761 from Harvard A.B., A.M. 1764. Taught school in Cambridge, Mass., was librarian at Harvard, 1762-63 and instructor in Hebrew 1761-64. "On the 7th of September, in the same year, the corporation voted, “ that Sir Sewall be the Hebrew instructor in Harvard College this year.” He was re-chosen in 1762 and 1763. In 1761, the Hancock Professorship of the Hebrew and other Oriental Languages was established, from a legacy of Thomas Hancock, an opulent merchant of Boston, who died August 1, 1764. This was the first professorship founded in America by a native. Stephen Sewall was elected the first professor on this foundation. His qualifications for the office were so preeminent, that he was probably the only one who was thought of to fill it. Besides his instructions in Hebrew and Chaldee, he was required to teach in a more private way, such students as should desire it, in the Samaritan, the Syriac and the Arabic. No American, previously, had acquired so extensive an acquaintance with eastern learning as Professor Sewall. His Greek odes were praised by the English reviewers. He corresponded with Kennicott and other learned foreign orientalists. He prepared a Greek Prosody and Lexicon, a Hebrew grammar, a Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon, (now in Ms. in the library of Harvard University), and pushed his studies into the Ethiopic and Persian".1
He married Rebecca Wigglesworth, daughter of Rev. Edward Wigglesworth and Rebecca Coolidge, on 9 August 1763 in Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, there was a child of the marriage, who died in infancy.1,3 Professor Stephen Sewall died on 23 July 1804 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at the age of 70 after a long and gradual decay.4

DIED. - In Cambridge, on Monday, the 23d July, after a very long and gradual decay, Stephen Sewall, esq. F.A.A. and formerly Hancock professor of Hebrew. and other oriental languages. He was born at York, in the district of Maine, in April, 1734 - his circumstances being narrow, he was first taught the trade of a joiner, by which he acquired the means to pursue his classical inquiries. At the age of 24 he was admitted a student in the University of Cambridge, and pursued his literary course with unabating ardor. After graduating in 1761, he remained a resident graduate, and supported himself by teaching the grammar school in Cambridge. The place of Hebrew instructor became vacant about that time by the resignation of Mr. Morrie. An American who had acquired a sufficient knowledge of Hebrew to be qualified for an instructor, was a phenomenon at that time seldom seen. Mr. Morris was a Jew of Algiers -To the disadvantage common to all foreigners, there was added a peculiar unhappiness in teaching. This had sunk the reputation of Hebrew into a state of contempt. Mr. Sewall undertook the task of recovering it. His grammar is exceedingly simple and intelligible. His reputation rose with that of his department, and when the late Mr. Hancock founded a professorship for the Hebrew and other oriental languages, Mr. Sewall was the unrivalled candidate. He continued in this office above twenty years. His lectures were models of English composition, and the suavity of his disposition, insured him the esteem of his pupils. Once only he was married. His wife was daughter of the first Dr. Wigglesworth, and died a year or two before he lost his professorship. After that event, he led a very retired life - He was early in the revolution, and continued a warm friend to it. In 1777, before republicanism had gone out of fashion among the learned, he was honored with a seat in the house of representatives, by the electors of the town of Cambridge. To an elegant taste in composition, of which specimens in several languages have been published, he added a modesty not only unassuming, but perhaps in some cases excessive. He died in his 71st year. His only child died in infancy.
He was author of "Pietas et Gratulatio" (1761); Hebrew Grammar (1763); Funeral Oration in Latin on Edward Holyoke (1769); Funeral Oration in English on Prof. John Winthrop (1779); Latin version of the first book of Edward Young's "Night Thoughts" (1780); Carmina sacra quce Latine Graoeceque condidit America (1789); Scripture Account of the Shechinah (1794); and The Scripture History Relating to the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah (1796.)5
