Captain Green Pendleton:                 1774 -1863, 89 years 

Return to Main Pendleton Page                

     

    Born June 21, 1774, Green Pendleton moved to Searsport from Westerly, Rhode Island where he was born.  He was just 10 years old when he moved with his father, Peleg.  Possessing a powerful physique and "of much natural dignity of bearing," Green went to sea at a  young age, and ultimately rose to command the Sloop Endeavor, and the Schooners Independence and Ceres between 1816 and 1829. 

Captain Green Pendleton had his homestead built in 1849 as a Cape style home with an attached barn. "As his family grew and as his fortunes improved additions were built from the back to the front, the Colonial being the last addition. There were eleven Pendleton children raised in this home with five sons also becoming sailing ship captains. The sixth son, however, according to his father's wishes, stayed behind and managed the farm. This grand home sits on an 80 acre parcel which includes woods with trails for snowshoeing or hiking, meadows for horses, a farm pond stocked with fish and rolling lawns. Three bedrooms have fireplaces and there is another fireplace in the living room. There are 3 bathrooms and a huge kitchen. The barn can accommodate two vehicles and there is a small horse shed in the rear. If you want to try your hand at farming or just making maple syrup or growing blueberries as a gentleman farmer you need to come experience this historic home on the outskirts of Searsport. It has been a B&B with three guest rooms, too. Maybe that appeals to you."  Per Martha "a realtor"

    In 1795 at age 20 he married his 18 year old first cousin, Ann Park.  Following the birth of their first child, Nancy, he purchased the land where his home, "Fairwinds," now stands from William Taylor of Boston for $5.00.  Nancy was followed by daughters Abigail and Catherine.  Then his sons were born. 

    Captain Green Pendleton's five eldest sons all became Master Mariners who, in the days of American sailing ships, carried our flag throughout the seven seas.  Two didn't return from voyages. Green, Jr., and Benjamin. Charles and Christopher returned.   John died at sea. Charles later died in Havana.  

    Capt. Green Pendleton's youngest son, James Hervey Pendleton, complied with his father's wishes, and stayed ashore to farm instead of following the seas as others had done.  James farmed the land and succeeded to the estate upon his father's death in 1863.   Fairwinds is now a welcoming Bed and Breakfast located at 428 E. Main St., Searsport, Maine.  NOTE:  Daughter Nancy Pendleton likely married a James Stowers instead of William Nichols.  William Nichols' wife appears to be a Nancy Pendleton born in early 1800s.

    From Brian Pendleton and his descendants, 1599-1910:

    Capt. Green Pendleton died at the age of 88.  Nice longevity!
