Amesburys in New England

At a time currently unknown to me, an Amsbury emigrated from England to New England. Whether that person came alone or with a family is  also unclear.  Hopefully these questions will be answered as research continues.  I do know that there was a Richard Amsbury (Ormsby?) back around 1620, and this where my story begins

YARNS FROM THE ROANOKE (From the New York Times October 1902)
Captain S A Amesbury of the big clipper Roanoke read with interest in yesterdays newspapers reports of the ill-luck which dogged the Shenandoah on her long trip from San Fransisco. His own ship arrived here on Tuesday after a voyage of 156 days from Seattle around the Horn and is now at the Atlantic docks in Brooklyn.
He did not run into a big storm, as did the Shenandoah, but when 400 miles off the coast of Guiana, he found himself and his ship in the centre of a whirling hurricane which consisted chiefly of woodpeckers, butterflies, swallows, sparrows, dragonflies and a lone sandpiper that was captured. They followed the ship for three days.
When the clipper started from Seattle she had among she had among her crew three Japs from an Italian bark. A few days after the start Teijei Tawara, who had been a boatswain, began to act queerly. He distributed most of his possesions among the sailors. After a big storm he was missing. he left a note saying that if anything happened to him to send his books to his wife at Nagasaki.
A week later another of the Japs began to give things away. A close watch was kept on him for the rest of the voyage. The Japanes cook began to show signs of insanity by getting up at 3 am. At night he ran out on deck shouting that somebody was trying to kill him. He was muzzled.
Two men fell overhead during the trip, but both were picked up. One, a green seaman lost his footing on the top gallant yard and tumbled ninety feet into the ocean. he gave up his ambition to be a sailor as soon as he reached Brooklyn..
Jabez A Amesbury in partnership with Leonard Ballou, purchased a cotton mill in 1825 at Allawaugen in N E Connecticut. Now called Ballouville. The Stone Chapel Manufacturing Co.  The premises were destroyed in a fire in 1851 and the insurance claim was disputed and went to court where the Company won their claim. Leonard was Jabez's son in law.
