Other Information


Edward Doty and his cousin, Edward Leister (Litster, Lister) fought the first duel in the new colony.

Edward Doty and his cousin, Edward Leister, came to America as indentured servants on the "Mayflower" in 1620.  Stephen Hopkins had paid their fare to America and they, in turn, promised to work for him until the debt was satisfied.

All was not work and hardship, though, in the new homeland.  Stephen Hopkins was the father of a lovely young daughter, Constance, age 15.  She had an exciting event to tell her grandchildren.

That first spring in the new land, the colonists looked on as the two young men, Edward Doty and Edward Leister, carried on a dual courtship for the hand of pretty Constance.  On 18 June 1621, the colonists were awakened at dawn by the sound of the clash of cold steel.  Rushing outside, they found Leister and Doty slashing away at each other in a duel.

"They were quickly disarmed and haled before Governor Bradford, who ordered them strung up with head and heels tied together so they could cool off their hot blood." Governor Bradford said later that "Edward Doty retrieved his character by change from youthful folly."

The fair Miss Constance never married either swain.  Instead, she later married the honorable Nicholas Snow, one of the founders of Eastham, Massachusetts.  Constance was the mother of twelve children.  She died in Eastham in Oct 1677.

Stephen Hopkins evidently got along well with his Indian neighbors.  He was the one responsible for making a treaty of peace with Chief Massosoit in 1621.  In 1642 he was a member of the Council of War for the colony.  He died at Eastham in 1644.

Edward Leister eventually returned to England.

Edward Doty was a signer of the Mayflower Compact in Cape Cod, Massachusetts Harbor on 11 Nov 1620.

In 1652, Edward Doty was one of the purchasers of Dartmouth, but removed to Yarmouth.
