The History of New Bedford (1858), Daniel Ricketson:  Index and Handbook of Ricketson’s World and Book

Preface

After a first, or even a second, reading, The History of New Bedford may seem a rambling collection of anecdotes (some twice-, or even thrice-told) of people largely lost in time.  Errors exist, and more than a few have found homes in the works of the many earnest scholars, who rightly consider Daniel Ricketson a primary source of information on Old Dartmouth history.  Even at the time of publication, many of his references were not in common use beyond the immediate purlieus of the Old Dartmouth colony.  Rooted deeply in the past, time has obscured them.

For this reason, The History of New Bedford is a dying book.  Yet, people still read it, are still charmed by it, and find a timeless value to it, even if it is an often incomprehensible one.  For Ricketson has drawn us, in a deep and personal way, into his community and his circle of friends.  He has shown us how they lived, what they thought, felt and cherished.

It is a fragile link to a fragmented and fading past, a story that needs telling, and one that wants hearing.  Thus, a handbook, as it were, was needed to serve as both an index and a compilation of the sources, lore, and the fading miscellany of the author’s times.  This text hopes to draw readers into his disappearing world and make it come alive again for modern readers.

Understanding Daniel Ricketson

There are three major factors that raise The History of New Bedford from mere reminiscences and chronicles to a compendium of the earliest community of separatists and pilgrims who found their peace neither in Plymouth Colony nor Massachusetts Bay Colony, which adjoined Plymouth Colony early on.

The first was Ricketson’s deep affection of homeland.  He was born in New Bedford in 1813, and died there in 1898, not far from his childhood home.  The earliest of his colonial line was William Ricketson, (d. 1691), who, together with his wife were proprietors of the Colony.  Later his Grandfather, Captain Daniel Ricketson (1744-1824), married into the prospering Russell family and continued the line with Joseph (1771-1841), who sired Daniel in 1813.  Deep roots bred the deep affections for the people he memorialized.  “The fondness . . . for the spot of our nativity . . . (neither time nor) distance can eradicate . . .” (p v). Further, he wrote, “It behooves every American to be acquainted with the history of the place which gave him birth.” (p. vi)

The second motivating force behind his history seems to have been unquoted words from Shakespeare’s drama, “The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones; . . .” (Julius Caesar, III, 2)

And last, Christ’s admonishment, after multiplying the loaves and fishes, to “Gather all the fragments, lest any be lost.” (p. iv and p. 137)

As a serious historical record, Ricketson’s History often falls short of the mark.  The deeds and characters of seemingly insignificant figures are often brought forward and explored in disproportionately greater depth than the deeds and characters of many who played more luminous roles in the  history of Old Dartmouth Colony.  It was not by chance that this occurred.

The author was a deeply religious, Old Light Quaker, all of whose motivations and writings celebrated their virtues and goodness.  A brief glance behind the scanty mention of certain more-notable figures shows them to have been slave-holders, apostates, or smugglers.  Their places have been given to people who might have otherwise been lost to time.  These were the people who gave him being, and among whom he lived.  Too humble to glorify themselves, their names appeared neither on public buildings, nor street signs, nor often even gravestones. These were the earliest of the Old Light Quakers, and it is this now-extinct race that would most easily have passed into history as quietly as it once lived and thrived, if not for its humble and pious spokesman.

For it was this community that collectively, more than individually, held the virtues and values that shaped and formed the character of Old Dartmouth for two centuries.  For two centuries, it was a place unlike any other place in America because of the immense influence of its collective believers.  A very small corner in a very small state, New Bedford still bears traces of its past.  They live in the quiet brotherhood of scholars, preservationists, and volunteers who toil in her museums, libraries, and historical societies. They are recognized wherever people value goodness.

And this is the importance, the relevance, and the value of Daniel Ricketson, the man and his book.

A Carol Fitzgerald, Editor/Compiler, under the auspices of the Library of the New Bedford Whaling Museum, is solely responsible for any errors noted.  Much gratitude is extended to the Research Library and to Ralph E. Fitzgerald, Jr., her patient husband.
