History: The poet and essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–82) was born in Boston of a line on his father's side that can be traced back through preachers to the first colonial generation. The name Emerson was brought over from England independently by various other people, including a Thomas Emerson who settled at Ipswich, MA, c. 1636.
