Josiah Bean-I know not who this Bean can be unless he is the one who married the widow of Jacob Weed. Weed died Jan. 1789. Bean may have had a prior wife. But by this wife he had Deacon Josiah Bean of Gilmanton one of whose daughters married a brother of Judge Ira A. Eastman of Gilmanton.  He had a son who moved to Maine and perhaps other children.  The Josiah Bean who married the widow Weed and died in Sandwich, in the north part about five miles from Rev. Mr. Hiddens Church.


Josiah Bean was possibly the first settler on  the property now owned by Aliston H. Grant.  The records of Rev. Jeremiah Shaw of Moultonborough, married Molly MCGAFFEY on November 12, 1788 and Betsy SINCLAIR on February 5, 1792 both of Sandwich, NH Perhaps this was the same man with a second wife.  Andrew was born in Sandwich on June 24, 1763.  He was a soldier in the 1812-15 war and died while in the service at Burlington, VT. in November 1813.  Josiah was a selectman in Sandwich in 1778.


David Bean-he settled upon the place where Ezekiel FRENCH so long lived and where he died, between John Prescott's and Jeremiah Page.  This Ezekiel French does not appear to have been at Sandwich in 1776. Bean traded farms with French for one near Guinea Mountain and received and overcoat in exchange.  It is said he was afterwards a miller at center Sandwich and lived in the house above Cyrus Beede.  He is said to have been a Quaker. Bean was an early Gilmanton name. David Bean came to Sandwich in the fall of 1767 with four other families and they all built log cabins.  In 1802, he and several other families moved to Sutton,VT.




Town records of Raymond, NH show that he was living there in 1765-66, on the Old Chester Homestead. In 1766 and 67 he was living in Brentwood.  It was either 1768 or 1769 that he moved to Sandwich with the rest of his family.

Captain Josiah served in the Revolutionary War under General Stark, serving at Portsmouth and in teh Battle of Bennington and at the taking of General Burgoyne at the Battle of Saratoga.


By his first wife Josiah had 9 ch and by his 2nd 3, the first son at

Raymond, NH and the next two at Brentwood; the rest at Sandwich NH
