William Dudley1

M, b. 20 October 1686, d. 5 August 1743
     William Dudley. Military officer and legislator. He was born on 20 October 1686 in Roxbury, Massachusetts.1 He was the son of Governor Joseph Dudley and Rebecca Tyng.1 Dudley graduated from Harvard College in 1704 and made his first venture into public life in 1705, when he travelled with Samuel Vetch and others to Quebec to arrange with Governor Philippe de Rigaud de Vaudreuil an exchange of prisoners, particularly of those taken in the Deerfield massacre of 1704. Dudley had been sent by his father to gain experience and to prove himself worthy of his name. The mission lasted six months (two and a half months in Quebec), but only a few prisoners were brought back, one being the son of the Reverend John Williams of Deerfield. Following this mission, Governor Dudley was accused of countenancing illegal trade, and Vetch was convicted of trading with the enemy. The governor and his son, however, escaped from the controversy unscathed. In New France, Governor Vaudreuil received a mild reprimand from the colonial minister, Pontchartrain, because of the dangers of spying and illegal trade inherent in the mission. In 1710 Joseph Dudley wrote to the secretary of state, St John, that the mission had indeed been used for the purpose of spying.

William Dudley participated in Colonel John March's expedition to Port-Royal (Annapolis Royal, N.S.) in 1707. Appointed by his father as the expedition s secretary of war, Dudley wrote a penetrating description of the dissension in New England ranks, on this abortive campaign against Acadia. In 1710, holding a major s commission from his father, he served in William Tailer s regiment under Vetch and Francis Nicholson in the capture of Port-Royal. As lieutenant-colonel he accompanied Vetch on the ill-fated expedition of Sir Hovenden Walker against Quebec in August 1711. By 1713 he was a colonel in command of the 1st regiment in Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

With the end of Queen Anne's War, the northeastern Indians (Abenakis of the Penobscot, Saint John, and Kennebec rivers) sued for peace with New England, and signed articles of submission at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on 13 July 1713. This was the first of several such peace conferences in which Dudley participated as witness or commissioner. Others occurred in 1717, 1720, 1722, and after the Indian war of 1722-25 Sébastien Rale). Early in 1725 Lieutenant Governor William Dummer sent Dudley and Samuel Thaxter to Montreal to seek an end to French assistance to the Indians and to obtain a release of prisoners. The French denied giving the Indians military aid, but did grant the release of 26 individuals
.
Dudley held various public offices during his life. In 1713 he was appointed a justice of the peace, and was a sheriff about the same time. He served in the Massachusetts house of representatives from 1718 to 1729 and was speaker of the house (1724-29). From 1729 until his death he sat on the Massachusetts Council. In his legislative career Dudley, whom Shipton has called a "gentleman woodsman," proved useful to the colony because of his knowledge of the back country. He served on every important boundary commission dealing with Massachusetts disputes with her neighbours and on many committees concerned with military and Indian affairs. Dr William Douglass, a contemporary, commented that he was the most knowledgeable legislator on land value and other provincial matters. Fellow councillor Thomas Hutchinson wrote that he was "deservedly esteemed and constantly employed in the most important services of government."2 William Dudley married Elizabeth Davenport, daughter of Hon. Judge Addington Davenport and Elizabeth Wainwright, on 10 March 1720/21.1 William Dudley died on 5 August 1743 in Roxbury at the age of 56 survived by eight children. The Boston Weekly News Letter, 11 Aug. 1743, stated that his passing was much lamented and that he was buried with great honour and respect.1
