  • Biography
    Arthur was baptized at St. Bartholomew's in Horley, Surrey, England. He had been a Lieutenant in a troop of horses in Cromwell?s army before coming to Providence on 27 Feb. 1649. On March 10, he bought equal rights into the Providence Plantations for 30 shillings. He served as Constable for the town of Providence in 1651, and was Assistant to the Town Council in 1651, 1659, 1665-1668, 1672-1676, 1679-1686, and 1690. He also served as Commissioner to the General Court, Moderator, Treasurer, and Deputy, among other jobs.

    He reportedly received some of his land from Indian Chief Massasoit and held land in 4 counties. Arthur's home was dubbed ?Fenner Castle? because of its large chimney and served as a garrison during Indian uprisings. There is an oil painting of Fenner Castle in the Historical Society of Providence, RI.

    King Philip's warriors burned it to the ground in 1676; it was rebuilt the following year around the chimney, which survived the fire. It eventually collapsed from neglect in 1887. A second house which Arthur built for his son Thomas in 1677 still stands in Cranston, RI.

    Arthur married 1st - Mehitable Waterman (b 1626 at Nyland, Somerset England; d 3 Dec. 1683 at Providence, RI), daughter of Richard Waterman and Bethiah Rice, who emigrated to the colonies in 1629 and settled with Roger Williams in Providence Plantations.

    Arthur married 2nd - Howlong Harris on 16 Dec. 1686, daughter of William and Susan Harris, but they had no more children.

    For an account of Arthur Fenner's life in greater detail, consult Rick Buckingham's The Book of Begats or Rev. J.P. Root's history.

    Children by Mehitable Waterman:

    1. Samuel (b ca. 1648-50); died young.
    2. Thomas (b 27 Oct. 1652; d 27 Feb. 1718); married twice.
    3. Sarah (b ca. 1655; bur 7 Nov. 1676).
    4. Freelove (b ca. 1656; d 1 June 1712); m Gideon Crawford.
    5. Arthur (b 1658;i d 24 April 1725); m Mary Smith (d 13 Dec. 1737).
    6. Bethiah (b ca. 1662); m Robert Kilton.
    7. Phebe (b ca. 1665); m Joseph Latham; lived at Saybrook, CT.

    The Death Registration states that James was a farmer (widower). He was 88 years old and his parents were Robert Gordon, farmer (deceased) and Isabella McConchie (deceased). He died of heart disease of old age. He was buried in the Parish Churchyard of Anwoth. The informant was William Gordon, his son.

    The information reported by his son as to the names William's parents seems to be in error. Other information indicates that James' father was Samuel Gordon and his mother was Isabel McConchie.
