Gardiner Greene (1753–1832) was a cotton planter and merchant from Boston, Massachusetts who conducted business from his plantation, Greenfield, in Demerara (Guyana) in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Socially prominent in the town of Boston, he owned a house, greenhouse, and garden filled with fruit trees and peacocks on Cotton Hill, opposite Scollay Square. He was also the son-in-law of painter John Singleton Copley.
Greene was born in Boston, September 23, 1753, to Benjamin Greene and Mary Chandler. He first travelled to Demerara in 1774. “He resided in Demarara for many years, and laid the foundation of a large fortune” shipping cotton, coffee, rum, and the like. Associates there included William Parkinson, a plantation owner in Mahaica.
Greene served as an official of the United States Bank and the Provident Institution for Savings. He was a proprietor of the Boston Athenaeum, a member of the Boston Episcopal Charitable Society, and a supporter of the Boston Asylum for Indigent Boys. In Boston, Greene’s acquaintances included Kirk Boott (1755–1817) of Bowdoin Square. In 1818, Greene purchased 230 shares of the Suffolk Bank, a clearinghouse bank on State Street in Boston.
In 1803 Greene bought land in Boston on Pemberton Hill (i.e. Cotton Hill), from Tremont Street (opposite Court Street) to Somerset Street, including the former house of William Vassall (built c. 1758). The Greene family lived there for several decades, until c. 1835. The estate was known for its sweeping harbor views and lush “hillside garden.” An acquaintance of the family, Marshall Pinckney Wilder, described the grounds:
“The most conspicuous and elegant garden of those days [in Boston] was that of Gardiner Greene, who had one of the early green-houses of Boston. The grounds were terraced and planted with vines, fruits, ornamental trees, flowering shrubs and plants. … Here were growing in the open air Black Hamburg and White Chasselas grapes, apricots, nectarines, peaches, pears and plums. … Here were many ornamental trees brought from foreign lands.”
One of Greene’s children, Martha Babcock Greene Amory, also remembered the remarkable garden. “‘In those primitive days … the gardener, like the plants, had to be imported expressly from the old country,’ according to Greene’s daughter. Their gardener was Scottish; he tended the fruit trees and the quaint box-edged beds. … At the back of the garden, the stable and cow shed were guarded by the ‘fierce mastiff, Pedro,’ whose fur Miss Greene made into mittens.”
Family In 1785 he married Ann Reading (1762–1786), who died the next year. He was married again in 1788, to Elizabeth Hubbard (1760–1797). In 1800 he married his third wife, Elizabeth Clarke Copley (1770–1866), whom he had met in London. “She was the daughter of John Singleton Copley and the sister of John, afterwards Baron Lyndhurst, three times Lord Chancellor of England. Her mother was Susanna Farnham, daughter of Richard Clarke, the merchant to whom was consigned the tea which was destroyed by the Boston Tea Party.” Greene also served as J.S. Copley’s agent in Boston for some 20 years.
Greene’s descendants included children Mary Anne Greene (1790–1827), Gardiner Greene (1792–1797), Benjamin Daniel Greene (born 1793), William Parkinson Greene (born 1795), Gardiner Greene (1802–1810), Elizabeth Hubbard Greene (1804–1844), Susannah Clarke Greene (1805–1844), Sara Greene (1808–1863), John Singleton Copley Greene (1810–1872), Martha Babcock Greene Amory (1812–1880), Mary Copley Greene (1817–1892); and grandson Gardiner Greene Hubbard.

Mabel Gardiner (Hubbard) Bell (b. November 15, 1857 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, d. January 3, 1923 in Washington, D.C.)
Founder of education association, suffragist
Mabel Hubbard was raised in Cambridge on Brattle Street. Her father, Gardiner Greene Hubbard who had a Boston law practice, helped establish a city water works in Cambridge, was a founder of the Cambridge Gas Co., and later organized a Cambridge to Boston trolley system. Between ages four and five, Mabel became deaf as a result of scarlet fever. Her father founded the first American school for the deaf at Chelmsford, Mass. and served as trustee of the Clarke School for the deaf, which Mabel attended.
After Mabel went to Germany in her teens to study chemistry and the German language, she returned to Cambridge at the age of sixteen. Alexander Graham Bell had taught at the Clarke School and was then professor of vocal physiology and elocution at Boston University. He was hired by Mabel’s father as a private tutor. Hubbard was also financing Bell’s experiments on the telephone and helped organize his company. Mabel and Alexander became romantically involved, and at first her parents opposed the marriage objecting to the age disparity and fearing that their children would be deaf (since Bell’s mother was congenitally deaf), but the two were engaged in 1875. In 1877, the couple married. They had two sons who died in infancy and two daughters who lived into adulthood.
Mabel supported her husband in his work, notably in his interest in aviation (the Aerial Experiment Association). In 1910, she became a strong supporter of women’s rights and marched in the women’s suffrage national convention in Washington in 1910. During World War I, she sponsored benefits to raise money for the Red Cross and fund lifeboats for the US Navy. She later founded the Montessori Education Association and became its president. Later she opened a school in Washington, D.C. and started a magazine, Freedom for the Child.
She died on January 3, 1923 in Washington D.C. and was buried on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada where the Bells had a summer home. Many of her letters to and from her husband are in the Bell Family Papers in the Library of Congress.
