History and Genealogy of the Eastman Family of America, Containing Biographical Sketches and Genealogies of Both Males and Females, by Guy S. Rix (Concord, New Hampshire, 1901) 2 Vols., 1000 pages.  The Digital Edition published on CD-ROM, © October 2009

Roger Eastman, the immigrant ancestor of Eastmans in America, sailed from Southampton in 1638.  He settled in Salisbury, Massachusetts, from whence the “tribe dispersed,” with most settling in the southern towns of New Hampshire and the northern town of Massachusetts. The third generation, however, settled farther north, up the Merrimack river, and in Maine; others settled to the south in Massachusetts and Connecticut.. From these places they scattered over the United States and Canada.

Prominent descendants included, in addition to Daniel Webster, George Eastman, the inventor, who founded the Eastman-Kodak Company, and William Wallace Eastman, who started a large flour milling operation (later acquired by Pilsbury), a woolen mill, a paper mill, and myriad other industrial activities in Minneapolis.  Another Eastman is said to have been responsible for the first orange groves in Southern California.

Allied families include, most prominently: CALEF, CARTER, DICKINSON, FRENCH, FOLSOM, FOWLER, GILE, HAMMOND, HOYT, KIMBALL, MARSH, MORRILL, PEASLEE, RIX, SANBORN, SARGENT, STEVENS, SWAN, WELLMAN, and WOOD.
