Historical note:

            This collection relates to the ancestors and extended family of Alfred Updike Collins. They can be divided into three basic groups.

1) Collins line. The early Collins family members were based in Hopkinton, R.I. and nearby Clark's Falls, Conn. They were all members of the Society of Friends (Quakers), and followed the Gurneyite or "Larger Body" of Quakers after that denomination's split of 1845.

2) Eddy-Updike line. The Eddy family was based in Washington County, R.I. and were members of the Congregationalist church. The Updikes were based in South Kingston, R.I. and were Episcopalians.

Wilkins Updike (1784-1867) was a lawyer, Rhode Island legislator, and author. He married Abigail Watson (1792-1843) and had:

Scope and content:

            This collection, ranging from 1791 to 1953, consists of an assortment of papers relating to Alfred Updike Collins and his ancestors. The papers in this collection include an autograph collection, a ciphering book, correspondence, diaries, financial papers, a memorandum book, a passport, recipes, school papers, sermons, speeches, and wills. The first three series of this collection are broken into family groups and then within each series an individual family member's papers are grouped accordingly.

            Series 1, the Collins family, spans five generations. It consists mostly of family correspondence circa 1850 to 1880, with most of the letters addressed to Abel F. Collins and his wife Electa, and their son Clarkson A. Collins. The family was very active in the South Kingstown Monthly Meeting of the Society of Friends (Gurneyite), and their Quaker faith is a major theme of the letters. This series also includes papers of Clarkson's grandson Alfred U. Collins from 1922 to 1950, particularly from his college years and his relationship with his wife Eliza (Chace) Collins.

            Series 2 consists mostly of the personal correspondence of Alfred U. Eddy and his wife Ann C. (Proctor) Eddy, dating from 1876 to 1930. Also included are short diaries by family members Aritis Updike and Caroline U. (Eddy) Collins.

            Series 3 includes one important folder of letters received by Richard K. Randolph, the prominent Newport lawyer, from 1813 to 1835. Also included are nine folders of papers from his granddaughter Annie M. (Randolph) Hunt, and other family papers. One particularly interesting letter to Richard K. Randolph was sent by Sullivan Dorr on June 22 1844. The letter requests the General Assembly's clemency for Dorr's son Thomas, who was in prison for leading an armed rebellion against the state. It reads in part, "I do not mean to justify my unhappy son in the least, but only to palliate his conduct to the assembly if possible and to procure an act of amnesty. Failing in that I pray that a man of letters should not be caged with the lowest fellows subject to the discipline of the State Prison."

            Series 4 consists of business records which appear to have no direct connection to the Collins, Eddy or Randolph families. It includes nine account books kept by Richmond merchants Joseph Irish and Samuel H. Pollock from 1801 to 1818; time books listing employees at the Providence Cotton Tie Company and Rodman Mill; and an account book from the company store at Simmons Mill.

            Series five consists of unidentified or miscellaneous material. The most significant portion is an autograph collection containing interesting letters from Rhode Island celebrities such as Sen. Henry B. Anthony, Bishop Thomas M. Clark and Nathan F. Dixon.

Processing note:

            A box of pamphlets and genealogical material was transferred to the Printed Collection. A list is available in the collection file. A small assortment of family photographs, postcards depicting Rhode Island scenes and advertising cards was sent to the Graphics Division.

            Four 1898 R.I.H.S. lecture announcements addressed to Elizabeth Randolph were placed in the R.I.H.S. Archives. Two volumes of draft meeting minutes for South Kingstown Monthly Meeting, 7/1860 to 7/1861 and 10/1877 to 12/1879, were given to the New England Yearly Meeting Archives. The official minutes from 1865 onward have been missing for many years, making the 1877-1879 volume particularly valuable.

After a brief stint in South Carolina, he became the successor to Dr. James McSparran at the Episcopal Church in Narragansett. Upon his death in 1781 he was buried under the communion table next to Dr. McSparran.]

Series 4: Unrelated account books

None of these account books appear to have a direct connection to the Collins, Eddy or Updike families. Perhaps a family member collected old account books from personal interest, or they may have been found in properties later acquired by the family.

Joseph Irish account books

Box 3, folder 1. Daybook, Richmond, 1809-1810.

Box 5 (oversized), volume 1. Daybook, Hopkinton / Richmond, 1801-1814

Box 5 (oversized), volume 2. Ledger, 1811-1818.

Joseph Irish (1772-1818) was the son of Col. George Irish. He never married, and kept a general store in Hopkinton, R.I. and then after 1802 in Richmond, R.I. His 1801-1814 daybook includes memoranda re violations of temperance and Sabbath laws, 1806.

Samuel H. Pollock account books

Box 5 (oversized), volume 3. Daybook, South Kingstown / Richmond, 1810-1812.

Box 3, folder 2. Daybook, Richmond, 1814-1815 and ledger 1811-1814.

Box 3, folder 3. Daybook, Richmond, 1815-1817.

Box 5 (oversized), volume 4. Ledger, 1810-1811.

Box 3, folder 4. Ledger, 1813-1814.

Box 3, folder 5. Ledger, 1814-1815.

Samuel Holden Pollock (1787- ) was born in South Kingstown, R.I., the son of William and Lydia Pollock. He married Sarah Lunt in South Kingstown in 1808, and had five children. He operated a general store in South Kingstown through 1811, when he moved to nearby Richmond, R.I. He sometimes dated his entries "Richmonton," a colloquialism for rural Richmond. That store continued in operation through 1817. The family has not been tracked beyond that point, but does not seem to appear in New England censuses in 1820 or 1830.

Providence Cotton Tie Company

Box 4, folder 1. Time book, 1878

The Providence Cotton Tie Company was located at 72 Canal Street in Providence. Its agent was William Woodbridge Simmons (1846-1909), son of Sen. James F. Simmons (see below). It disappears from the directories circa 1885.

Rodman Mill, South Kingstown, R.I.

Box 5 (oversized), volume 5. Production and pay book, 1864-1868.

Samuel Rodman (1800-1882) was an uncle of Alfred Updike Eddy. He owned several woolen mills in the village of Rocky Brook, South Kingstown, R.I. This particular one was also known as Rocky Brook Mill, and was built circa 1843. It was managed by Samuel Rodman Jr. (1842-1890) from 1860 to 1870. This volume gives the weekly production records and pay of the mostly female mill operatives, as well as some other production memoranda. It was identified by a notation on the June 1868 page reading "Sam'l Rodman Jr., Rocky Brook, R.I." A sample of five listed names was checked in the 1865 census, and all five were found to reside in Rocky Brook Village.

Simmons Mill, Johnston, R.I.

Box 4, folder 2. Daybook, 1847-1850

This volume seems to belong to one of the textile mills owned by James F. Simmons (1795-1864) in the southeastern part of Johnston, R.I. It may be the account book of the operator of the mill's general store. The book has frequent entries for transactions with James F. Simmons, his son Walter C. Simmons (1821-1887), and the "Old Mill." The products sold most frequently are oil, lumber and soap - not the usual general store fare. Bibliography:
