WILLIAM FRANCIS JOSEPH BOARDMAN 

AND 

HIS FAMILY 



mTEODUCTIOK 



The lives of many persons are involved in the ancestry 
of every individual and offer an extensive field for genea- 
logical research. Others than the one whose ancestry is thus 
traced may find valuable information in such a record, for 
various families are mentioned and from each marriage 
many other persons derive their descent. This research leads 
also to a large number of emigrant ancestors who were 
among the early settlers of the American colonies. For the 
benefit of those who may be thus concerned, but especially 
for such as have an equal interest with the author in these 
lines of descent a limited edition of the Boardman Ancestry 
is printed. 

In the course of the author's labor of gathering informa- 
tion for the Boardman Genealogy many investigations were 
made by him into the history of allied families, and a mass 
of material Avas accumulated from which many of these 
biographical sketches were long ago prepared. Since the 
publication of the above volume this work has been continued 
until every line has been completed as far as the sources of 
such information would permit. 

The author's purpose has been to give the principal facts 
concerning the life of each individual, at the same time 
preserving the family unity and recording the children of 
each marriage. The method of arrangement adopted is one 
that is familiar to all genealogists, and is commonly used 
in ancestral charts, each male ancestor having an even num- 
ber and his wife the odd number next higher. So in the 



10 INTRODUCTION. 

next earlier generation the father of each individual is 
designated by an even number twice his or her own and the 
mother by the succeeding odd number. Thus every person 
in the records is easily identified by a number corresponding 
to the same on the accompanying genealogical charts. This 
system is thought to be best adapted to serve the author's 
purpose and also to be most readily understood and convenient 
for reference. 

" Lines of Descent from Emigrant Ancestors " and 
" Genealogical Charts " have been provided for ready ref- 
erence. The line of descent from any ancestor of a later 
date than the emigrant will of course be found under the 
emigrant ancestor of that name in the first column. The 
English ancestry of an emigrant where it is known is given 
in connection with his sketch. In the " Index of Names " 
all persons mentioned in this volume appear, such as are 
subjects of sketches being indicated by the dates following.

WILLIAM FRANCIS JOSEPH BOARDMAN 

1. 

WILLIAM FRANCIS JOSEPH B0ARDMA;N^, of 
Hartford, Conn., was the son of AVilliam Boardman (No. 2) 
and Mary Francis (No. 3), and was born in Wethersfield, 
Conn., December 12, 1828, in the ancestral home of the 
family where his father then lived, located on Broad street 
in that town. It was an ideal New England home, pleas- 



antly situated amid beautiful surroundings, well provided 
with the comforts of that day and filled with the good in- 
fluences of education, morals, and religion. On the farm 
there was always work for the boy and his amusements were 
few — only an occasional turn at " old cat," wicket, foot 
ball, checkers or some other of the boyhood sports of those 
days, and fishing in the river when it rained too hard for 
out-door work. The holidays of the time. Thanksgiving, 
Fourth of July, and Election Day, were improved to the 
utmost ; but they were " few and far between," and the 
Sundays, that were observed with Puritan strictness, seemed 
to be very frequent. This boy of the Boardman home at- 
tended with regularity the schools of the town, finally grad- 
uating from the Academy in the spring of 1846 at the age 
of seventeen. He then entered the Coffee and Spice Manufac- 
tory of his father in Wethersfield to assist him and become 



14 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

familiar in detail with the business. During the next four 
years he was the " man of all work " in the establishment, 
— book-keeper, coffee roaster and packer, traveling salesman, 
etc., and he then received under the guidance of his father 
a thorough business training and formed many acquaintances 
that were of great value to him in after life. 

This increasing business required more improved facil- 
ities and larger accommodations for its successful prosecu- 
tion, and early in 1850 it was removed to Hartford, Mr. 
Boardman being then admitted into partnership with his 
father under the firm name of William Boardman & Son. 
He then removed his residence to Hartford, May 15, 1850, 
boarding with Mrs. Silloway, comer of Windsor and Pleasant 
streets. From that time the responsibility in the business, 
which is more fully refeiTcd to in the sketch of William 
Boardman, the head of the firm, began to fall more and 
more upon the son, and thereafter for many years he devoted 
to it his entire energy. Opportunities that opened to him 
in other directions were declined that nothing might divert 
his attention and impair the value of his services in the 
business. In 1853, still more room being needed, the 
manufactory was removed from 'No. 12 Central Row, where 
it had first located, to what is now No. 241 State street, and 
at this time Mr. Boardman's younger brother, Thomas 
Jefferson Boardman, was admitted to the partnership and 
the firm name became William Boardman & Sons. The 
ambition, energy, and diligence of the younger members of 
the firm, wisely directed by the father, were rewarded with 
success. In 1858, two stories in an adjoining building were 
leased, and teas were added to the stock in trade. In 1867 
the business was removed to No. 205 State street, the old 



WILLIAM FRANCIS JOSEPH BOARDMAN. 15 

store and storehouse being retained for the manufacturing 
and storage of goods. These quarters proved to be too 
limited and in 1871 the firm erected for the use of the 
business the browTi stone building, ISTos. 298-306 Asylum 
street, known as the Boardman Building. 

Throughout all these years, during which a small en- 
terprise was developed into a large manufacturing estab- 
lishment, Mr. Boardman devoted himself with the closest 
application to the business of the firm. He was permitted 
to see it successful and widely known throughout the country. 
But the labor and care finally proved too much for his 
strength and his health became seriously impaired. He 
sought rest, at length going abroad in the hope of being 
benefited by travel and change. The result was not entirely 
satisfactory, and Mr. Boardman after the death of his father 
concluded to abandon all business activity. He therefore 
sold to his brother, and the latter's son, his interest in the 
firm with which he had been connected so long, and, July 9, 
1888, retired from the business which had received his best 
service for forty-two years. 

Mr. Boardman was actively associated, during his bus- 
iness career, in the promotion and establishment of many 
enterprises. In many of these his father or the firm were 
also interested and they are named in the sketch of its senior 
member. Much of the responsibility and labor, however, 
fell upon the son, and he gave freely of his time and thought 
to such matters. In the construction of several buildings 
that were erected by the firm the superintendence of the 
work devolved upon him. These were the Boardman Build- 
ing in 1871, the Agard Building, Nos. 285-293 Asylum 
street in 1876, and the Lawrence Building, Nos. 87-94 State 



16 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

street in 1879. Under his supervision also the residence of 
his son, Mr. William Greenleaf Boardman, No. 10 Marshall 
street (formerly IsTo. 2), was built. In 1861 he was chosen 
a director of the State Bank of Hartford, serving in that 
capacity during the Civil War with conscientious devotion 
to its interests. In this bank William Boardman and Son 
opened an account in May, 1850, and this relationship of the 
firm has been continued to the present time. 

In 1863 Mr. Boardman was elected a member of the 
Court of Common Council of Hartford from the old Third 
Ward, and was a member of the committee on highways and 
chairman of the committee on the horse railroad, then in 
process of construction. He never sought political office or 
favor, though he has had a lifelong affiliation with the dem- 
ocratic party, those commonly known as " gold democrats." 
Other concerns engaged his time and attention during the 
active period of his business life. He dealt largely in real 
estate and assisted several young men to establish themselves 
in business. He has served on commissions, settled estates, 
and withal maintained an interest as a citizen in the welfare 
of the community in which he has lived. 

The excessive cares of Mr. Boardman's business life led 
him to seek diversion in the study of family history. In 
1882 he began to gather infomiation from various sources 
on the Boardman family. This work, after the ex|3enditure 
of much time and money in collecting records and original 
investigation at home and abroad, resulted in 1895 in his 
publication of the Boardman Genealogy, 1525-1895, a work 
of nearly 800 pages, which is believed to be as complete 
as any in the field of family history. The entire expense 
of the necessary investigation for this volume and the cost

of publication, Mr. Boardman assumed, believing that the 
family was worthy of such a memorial. He has also pub- 
lished the Francis-Goodrich-Boardman Genealogy in his own 
line of ancestry, a Memorial of Mary Francis and William 
Boardman, and a Complete Record of the Wethersfield 
Inscriptions in the Five Burial Places in that Ancient Town, 
He gave valuable assistance in " a very large proportion of 
the illustrations," in historical material and means toward 
the publication of Stiles's History of Wethersfield, in 
which town as the ancestral home of his family he has an 
abiding interest. In his collection of books and manuscripts, 
antique furniture, curios, paintings, and pictures may be 
found much that is of great value in the history of the Board- 
man family and the town in which so many of them lived. 

Mr. Boardman was one of the original members of the 
Putnam Phalanx at its organization in 1859 and still retains 
his connection with this well known military battalion. His 
studies have developed a deep interest in historical societies. 
He is a life member of the Connecticut Historical Society, 
a life member of the Xew England Historic Genealogical 
Society, a member of the Topsfield Historical Society and 
the Ipswich Historical Society. He is also a member of 
several patriotic orders — the Sons of the American Revolu- 
tion, the Sons of the Revolution, and the Connecticut Society 
of the Order of the Founders and Patriots of America, being 
one of the original members of the latter at its organization. 
May 9, 1896, and chosen one of its councillors, and later 
elected Genealogist of the Society. Mr. Boardman is a life 
member of the Wethersfield Society Library, and was deeply 
interested in the erection of a monument in that town to the 
memory of Samuel Boreman and his descendants. He is a 
3

member of the Connecticut Humane Society and is a liberal 
contributor to other philanthropic and benevolent causes. 

After Mr. Boardman's marriage he resided for a year in 
Phelps' Block, No. 279 North Main street. In 1853 he 
removed to 'No. 27 John street, where he lived two years and 
his son, William Greenleaf Boardman, was bom. He next 
resided for a similar period at No. 44 Pleasant street, and 
removed thence in 1857 to No. 14 Linden Place which was 
formerly the home of his wife's mother. In 1859, the Board- 
man home having been erected, he removed thither to live 
next door to his father at No. 34 Buckingham street. He 
took up his residence at No. 74 (formerly No. 16) Farming- 
ton avenue April 1, 1866, where he has since had his home.

JANE MARIA GREENLEAF 

William Francis Joseph Boardman married, January 7, 
1852, JANE MARIA GREENLEAF, daughter of Doctor 
Charles Greenleaf and Electa Toocker, who was born in 
Hartford, Conn., August 9, 1835. The marriage was cel- 

ebrated in the North Congregational Church, in Hartford, 
the ceremony being performed by the pastor, Rev. Horace 
Bushnell, D.D. 

At the time of Mrs. Boardman's birth, the home of her 
parents was located on the south side of Asylum street, a 
few rods east of Ford street, and the house, though somewhat 
altered in appearance, is still standing. In 1836, they 
removed to No. 10 Windsor street. After Doctor Greenleaf's 
death, or about 1845, the widow removed to No. 294 Main 
street, and about 1848, to No. 14 Wells avenue, which was 
Mrs. Boardman's home at the time of her marriage. In the 
Greenleaf family there were twelve children, of whom Jane 
Maria was the youngest. This circumstance and the tender 
sympathies of her nature made her a general favorite in the 
circle. In after years she was looked to for counsel, assist- 
ance and comfort, which she was always most willing to 
minister. 

The early education of Mrs. Boardman was conducted in 
the schools of the Misses Stockbridge on Talcott street. Miss 
Kelsey on Trumbull street, and the Center school on Market 
street. What she thus acquired was greatly augmented in 



20 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

later years by her natural intelligence, a lifelong habit of 
reading, and her powers of observation. She found her 
highest sphere, however, in her home, the cares of which 
she took up with devotion in her youth and ever conducted 
with wisdom and affection. She made her home, as one of 
her friends said, " a place of rest and peace and harmony." 
In it she gathered a circle of devoted friends who were 
blessed by her gracious hospitality. To her family she was 
always a loyal companion, a faithful wife, and an affectionate 
mother, whose good cheer was the sunshine of all. 

Among her traits a love for the beautiful was conspicuous^ 
and especially was this true of her delight in nature. The 
flowers were her friends and she found in the glow of the 
sunset many a feast of soul. As one might expect in a 
person of such sensibilities, Mrs. Boardman was filled with 
sympathy for the poor and imfortunate. Her charities were 
large and continual, though never bestowed to be seen of 
others and rarely known to those who were nearest to her. 
At the time of her death one of her intimate acquaintances 
wrote of her in the public press as follows: — "She was 
kind, sympathetic and charitable to all. To the sick she was 
a ministering angel. 'No one could have been more loyal to 
friends. Many will miss her bounties, which were in the 
majority of cases extended without the knowledge of the 
recipient, so far as the giver was concerned." 

Previous to Mrs. Boardman's death she had been for a 
number of years in poor health, induced by an accident when 
she was engaged in kindly ministration to one of her family 
circle in a distant town, and a strange house. Yet she bore 
with patience the pains of her affliction, and after years of 
suffering entered into her reward on the 20th of August, 



JANE MARIA GREENLEAF. 21 

1899. Her funeral was held from her home No. 74 Farming- 
ton avenue on the 2 2d of August, the services being conducted 
by the Rev. E. S. Ferry, pastor of the South Park Methodist 
Church, and the Rev. George L. Coburn, pastor of the 
Wethersfield Methodist Episcopal Church. The interment 
was in the family lot at Cedar Hill Cemetery. Thus there 
passed from earth one who exemplified in her life the true 
worth of an unselfish, beautiful and affectionate character, 
whose memory lives in all who knew her and is blessed. 



WILLIAM GREENLEAF BOARDMAN 

WILLIAM GREENLEAF BOARDMAN, the only 
child of William Francis Joseph and Jane Maria Greenleaf 
Boardman, was bom in Hartford, Conn., June 29, 1853, at 
No. 27 John street. He was educated at Mr. Hart's prepar- 
atory school in Farmington, Conn., Mr. Hall's Classical 
School in Ellington, Conn., and the Hartford High School. 





He was connected with the firm of William Boardman & 
Sons, but has been obliged to give up business for a time on 
account of trouble with his eyes. Mr. Boardman is a life 
member of the Connecticut Historical Society, a member of 
the Sons of the American Revolution, and the Connecticut 
Society of the Order of the Founders and Patriots of America 
and one of its Councillors. He is also President of the 
Hubbard Escort of Hartford, and Treasurer of the Board- 
man Family Association. 

William Greenleaf Boardman married in Hartford, 
Conn., October 29, 1874, Eliza Fowler Root, a descendant 
of Thomas Root, one of the early settlers of Hartford, and 
a daughter of Horatio Root and Abigail Whittier Hussey, 
the latter a cousin of the poet John Greenleaf Whittier. 
The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Matson Meir 
Smith, rector of St. John's Church, in the home of the bride. 
No. 84 Hudson street. Mrs. Boardman was born in the 
home where she was married. May 11, 1853. The home of 
William Greenleaf Boardman is at No. 10 Marshall street,

Hartford. There are two children living, Cedric Root, born 
January 23, 1886, and Dorothy Root, born April 26, 1889. 
An older child of uncommon promise, Francis Whittier, was 
born at No. 74 Farmington avenue, April 6, 1876, and died 
at No. 10 Marshall street, April 5, 1885. The following 
beautiful and interesting letter was written to the bereaved 
parents by the poet Whittier in expressing his sympathy: 

Amesbury, 4th Mo. 8, 1885. 
My Dear Cousin: 

I have just opened thy letter and read of thy great 
sorrow. The dear, beautiful boy whose picture I have 
delighted to look at, how much he must have been to thee. 
At a time like this words must seem almost intrusive; the 
poor, ordinary phrases of consolation avail nothing. But 
it is something to have had nine years of his beautiful life, 
and the time will come, if it has not already, when thee 
would not exchange the loving memory of him for any 
living child in the world. And with him it is well. What 
trials, sorrows, temptations he has escaped, the dear God 
and Father who has called him to Himself only knows . . . 

Oh, dearest dead! To Heaven 

With grudging hearts we gave you; 

To Him — be doubts forgiven — 
Who took you there to save you. 

I wish I could see you and tell you how deeply and tenderly 

I sympathize with you. With love to thy husband, whose 

great sorrow for your mutual loss I can understand, and thy 

mother and Aunt Mary and thy sisters, I am, dear Lizzie, 

thy affectionate Cousin, 

John G. Whittier.

WILLIAM BOARDMAN 

WILLIAM BOARDMAi^, son of Joseph Simeon Board- 
man (No. 4) and Liicinda Canfield (No. 5), was born 
February 25, 1805, in Lenox, Mass., where his parents were 
then residing. In the latter part of the same year they 





/>^6</aa*i^ c/u irtyr^c^^i<^>' c<^ 



removed to Wethersfield, Conn., and there the son had his 
childhood home and entered upon the business of his life. He 
received his education in the best schools of that ancient 
town. At the age of sixteen he began to learn the printer's 
trade in the office of the Hartford Times, then owned and 
published by Samuel Bowles and John Francis, the agree- 
ment being that he should receive $20.00 a year, with board, 
washing, and mending. In the summer of 1824, he ac- 
companied Mr. Bowles to Springfield, Mass., and assisted 
him in establishing the Sprvngfield Republican, setting up 
the type and printing a part of the first issue of that 
well-known newspaper. This removal was accomplished 
by placing the press, with all the articles necessary for use 
in the business, and the proprietor's household furniture on 
a flatboat, in which they were poled up the Com^ecticut river. 
During the period of this service Mr. Boardman boarded in 
the family of his employer. In September, 1828, having 
returned meanwhile to Wethersfield and married, he entered 



28 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

into a partnership with William Faulkner of ISTorwich, 
Conn., under the firm name of Boardman & Faulkner, and 
began the publication of the Norwich Republican, of which 
he was the founder and editor. This was the second 
newspaper in Connecticut to support the election of Andrew 
Jackson for the Presidency. He was soon forced to retire 
from this enterprise on account of his health. In 1830 
he was, for a short time, the publisher of the Tolland 
Advocate, of Tolland, Conn., having been engaged for that, 
purpose by an association of interested gentlemen. Then 
in company with Alfred Francis, Esq., of Wethersfield, he 
issued in 1832, an octavo volume, entitled " Sketches of the 
Life, Writings, and Opinions of Thomas Jefferson," written 
for them by Mr. B. L. Rayner, the printing, binding, etc., 
being done in Wethersfield in the building now standing on 
the corner opposite May's tavern on the north. A large 
edition of this book was published and it was sold by subscrip- 
tion, being received with much favor by the public. Two 
years later he was employed by John Russell, then editor 
and publisher of the Hartford Times, as foreman of the 
establishment. This was his last engagement at his trade, 
though the experience thereby acquired was invaluable 
to him in the subsequent business of his life. From the 
year 1837 to 1839 he was engaged in farming at Wethers- 
field. To this occupation he added the culture of silk worms, 
from whose product he manufactured sewing silk, and he 
also made cigars from tobacco of his own cultivation. 

In 1841 Mr. Boardman began the most important bus- 
iness venture of his life with which his name is still as- 
sociated. He then established, in company with John Fox, 
a grocery and coffee business in Wethersfield, the firm name

WILLIAM BOARDMAN. 29 

being Fox & Boardman. With characteristic foresight Mr. 
Boardman saw the value in the market of coffee, slices, etc., 
already prepared and put up for use. This led the firm to 
begin the manufacture of such articles and they were the 
first so engaged in New England, outside of Boston. The 
partnership was dissolved October 1, 1844, and from January 
1, 1845, until the business was removed to Hartford Mr. 
Boardman carried it on alone. At first he was located in the 
second story of the Richard Bobbins store, now occupied by 
A. W. Hanmer, but he removed, in 1846, to the Roswell 
Clapp place, now the location of the post-office in that town. 
The coffee was purchased in bags as imported, roasted and at 
first ground by hand, the Samson who supplied the power 
being a blind man named Charles Benson, who was glad of 
the opportunity to earn his wages in this manner. Soon, 
however, horse-power was substituted in the operation of the 
machinery. Many labels, advertisements, etc., the mementoes 
of this business in its early days, have been preserved by 
Mr. Boardman's eldest son. 

The increase of the output demanding a change, the 
business was removed to Hartford in 1850, and located at 
ISTo. 12 Central Row. At this time Mr. Boardman's ,son, 
William Francis Joseph Boardman, was admitted to partner- 
ship and three years later the younger son also, Thomas 
Jefferson Boardman. The history of the business, therefore, 
after 1853 is one into which the efforts of these three men 
enter and in which they were most intimately associated. 
Each in his turn bore ''' the heat and burden of the day," 
and all were permitted to see this business which was begun 
in a small way in a country town become one widely known 
throughout the country. 



30 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

Several changes were made from time to time in conse- 
quence of the need for more commodious quarters, and 
improved methods of manufacture. When the business w&s 
located at No. 12 Central Row, steam power and modern 
machinery were introduced. The sale of its product was 
widely extended within a few years in the New England 
states, New York City, and Canada, where a large amount 
of the manufactured goods was sold. The coffee used at the 
opening of the Crystal Palace in New York, July 14, 1853, 
was furnished by them. Probably the first invoice of ground 
and prepared coffee sent to California was from this firm. 
In 1853, the business was removed to No. 109 State street, 
(now No. 241 State street), in 1867 to No. 205 State street, 
and in 1871 the Boardman Building, Nos. 298-306 Asylum 
street (formerly Nos. 122-130 Asylum street) was built for 
its accommodation. It has been conducted successively under 
the names Fox and Boardman, from 1841 to 1845, William 
Boardman, from January 1, 1845 to 1850, William Board- 
man & Son, from 1850 to 1853, William Boardman & Sons, 
from 1853 to 1897, and The William Boardman & Sons Com- 
pany, from January 1, 1897, when it was incorporated, to 
the present time. A single room, with a place for roasting, 
was sufiicient for its use in 1841, but it grew within the life 
of its originator to need the commodious Boardman Building, 
erected at a cost of over $100,000, to which it removed April 
1, 1872, and where it is at present located, with a large 
manufactory in the rear, fully equipped with the most 
improved machinery. It has become one of the most success- 
ful companies in New England, engaged as importers and 
dealers in teas, coffees, spices, grocers' sundries, cigars and 
tobacco. In 1858, William Boardman and Sons were award- 



WILLIAM BOARDMAN. 31 

ed a first premium for every variety of tea, coffee and spices, 
there being some seventy varieties of tea alone. In all this 
development William Boardman bore his part while he lived 
and the company which still honors his name is a monument 
to his career as a business man. 

Mr. Boardman was also interested in many other private 
enterprises. He took an active part in the formation of 
banks, insurance companies, and manufacturing corpora- 
tions, and was an officer and director in many of them. 
Among these may be mentioned the Bank of Hartford County 
(American National), the Merchants and Manufacturers 
Bank (First ISTational), the Orient Fire Insurance Company, 
the City Fire Insurance Company, the Mechanics Bank and 
Building Association (Mechanics Savings Bank), the Hart- 
ford and New York Steamboat Company, the Merrick Thread 
Company, of Holyoke, Mass., the Hudson River Water Power 
& Paper Company, of Mechanicsville, N. Y., the Comstock 
& Ferre Seed Company and others. He was an original sub- 
scriber to the stock of the City Fire Insurance Company, 
the Merchants Fire Insurance Company, the Phoenix Fire 
Insurance Company, the Orient Fire Insurance Company, 
and the Hartford Engineering Company. In 1836, and for 
several years thereafter, he was secretary and a director of 
the Wethersfield Mutual Fire Insurance Company. He was 
largely interested in proving the feasibility and cheapness 
of peat as a fuel. At one time he was associated with Henry 
Martin in the manufacture of the first power machines for 
making brick in this country; and was president, general 
agent and manager of the Holbrook School Apparatus Com- 
pany for the making of instruments showing the revolution 
of the solar system, and of other instruments connected with 



33 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

the education of children. He was president of the Hartford 
Associated Coal Company, a company which was formed just 
after the Civil War, to enable consumers to receive their coal 
at the cost of mining, etc., and which, owing to the general 
collapse in mercantile values, did not prove a success. He 
was also associated with others in building several vessels of 
large size^ among which were the schooners " William Board- 
man," " M. M. Merriman," " A. J. Bentley," " Sarah A. 
Reed," and " Jessie B. Smith," and was interested as part 
owner in the schooners " J. S. Curtis," " Messenger," 
" Yankee Boy," " C. S. Hazzard," and " Oliver Spellman." 

Mr. Boardman never outgrew his early interest in the 
publication of newspapers. He assisted J. M. Schofield in 
establishing the Hartford Morning Post in 1858, a dem- 
ocratic journal, now the Hartford Evening Post and 
independent. His interest in the Hartford Times continued 
throughout his life and he was a subscriber from 1820 to 
his death, a period of sixty-eight years. 

It should be noted, however, that in most or all the 
above business enterprises, the financial interest was that of 
the firm of which he was the senior member, and in many 
instances the responsibility and labor devolved upon its 
junior members. 

During his earlier life in Wethersfield, Mr. Boardman 
held honorable ofiices. In 1834 he was a director of the 
State prison, in 1835, 1836 and 1837, constable and collector 
in the town, and in 1852 he represented Wethersfield in the 
Legislature, serving on several important committees. He 
was again appointed a director of the State prison by 
Governor Thomas H. Seymour, and also commissioner for 
Hartford County. In politics he was a democrat and a 



WILLIAM B0ARD3HAN. 33 

warm advocate of his party principles, and during the Civil 
War he was a loyal supporter of the Union. After his re- 
moval to Hartford in 1857, he invariably refused public 
office. He was, however, warmly interested in everything 
that pertained to the welfare of his adopted city, among 
whose people he had a large acquaintance. He was a member 
of the Masonic fraternity and of the Odd Fellows, in the 
latter organization holding at one time the office of Noble 
Grand. His advice on business matters was frequently 
sought and freely and honestly given, and he was often called 
upon to settle estates and render other similar services. Mr. 
Boardman, in his later years especially, had a warm interest 
in his kindred and was the first president of the Boardman 
Family Association, which was formed at Xo. 304 Asylum 
street, August 27, 1886. Some time before his death he 
subscril:>ed one hundred dollars toward the erection of a 
monument to his emigrant ancestor in Wethersfield. 

The religious side of Mr. Boardman's life deserves 
especial mention. It has been said of him that " To strict 
integrity, a careful frugality, a true orthodoxy, he joined a 
clear religious experience." Although he attended early in 
life the Congregational Church in Wethersfield, both he and 
his wife became deeply interested in the Methodist Episcopal 
Church during its struggle to obtain a foothold in that town, 
and they united with it in 1838, continuing through life its 
firm friends. At all times he was a liberal donor to the 
needs of this Church, and as an evidence of the appreciation 
of his many gifts, and his munificence when its edifice was 
rebuilt, it was named the Boardman Chapel. Mr. Boardman 
had a generous instinct which led him to help those whose 
religious privileges were by any means in jeopardy. He was 

6

at first drawn toward the Methodists by the opposition to 
them, when they were refused the use of the town hall in 
Wethersfield for their services, and the excitement was so 
great that the " riot act " was read to the assembled crowd 
by Samuel Galpin, Esq. This same generosity made him 
ever a valued friend of the Methodist Church when in need 
of his assistance. When he removed to Hartford, he united 
with the First Methodist Church, of which he was for many 
years a trustee. He was one of the building committee for 
the erection of their house of worship on Asylum street, and 
made a liberal donation to it. Subsequently he became one 
of the organizers of the South Park Methodist Episcopal 
Church, and he also contributed a considerable sum for the 
erection of their building, being a trustee and member of the 
building committee. One of the acts of his later life was 
the payment of the mortgage then on the Church and 
parsonage, thus relieving the society of debt, and this on the 
condition that there should never be another mortgage. He 
was elected the first superintendent of its Sunday school, 
continuing in that capacity until infirmity and advancing 
age compelled him to resign. In 1885, after the death of his 
wife, he built the Boardman Memorial Chapel, adjoining 
the Church, in remembrance of her. It was dedicated with 
appropriate services, February 23, 1886. 

The early life of Mr. Boardman was spent in the old 
Boardman homestead, on Broad street, Wethersfield, but in 
1846 he removed thence to the house built by Mrs. Board- 
man's father, Captain Daniel Francis, on High street. In 
March, 1857, he came to Hartford to reside in the west half 
of the double house which had been built by himself and 
his son William F. J. Boardman, No. 36 Buckingham street

He lived there until his death, which occurred November 
3, 1887, after some months of failing strength, during 
which, however, his mind remained to the last strong and 
clear. He is buried in the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hartford- 
There a costly granite monument is erected in memory of 
himself and his family. It is of Westerly granite, represent- 
ing the figure Hope, and was modeled by Conrad and 
executed by Baldi. An account of Mr. Boardman's funeral 
services and some of the tributes then paid to his character 
are printed in the Memorial of Mary Francis and William 
Boardman. In his will Mr. Boardman perpetuated the 
benevolence of his life by making bequests to the Old 
People's Home, the Hartford Hospital, the Larabee Fund, 
the Charitable Society of Hartford, the Fund for Superan- 
nuated Preachers, the Board of Church Extension of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, and to the Grant Memorial 
University of Athens, Tenn., for a scholarship. 



MARY FRANCIS. 
3. 

William Boardman was married by Rev. Caleb J. Tenny 
in Wethersfield, Conn., January 3, 1828, to MARY 
FRAITCIS, daughter of Daniel Francis (Xo. 6) and 
Mehitabel Goodrich (No. 7), who was born in Wethersfield, 
November 6, 1803. At the time of her birth Capt. Francis 
was building his new home, a brick house located on the 
west side of High street, now the residence of Mr. Carlos 

Dow. The family were then living with Captain Elizur 
Goodrich, the father of Mrs. Francis. The girlhood of 
Mrs. Boardman was spent in that town and she was educated 
in its schools, having also the best of influences at home. 
After her marriage to Mr. Boardman, she lived the useful 
and quiet life of a wife and mother, filling her place with 
more than usual capacity, deeply beloved in her family 
circle and honored by all who knew her. She was a woman 
of remarkable kindness and liberality. Tier whole life was 
one of charity and benevolence to the deserving poor. Not 
only did she give generously to those in need of aid, but she 
was constantly a comfort and help to others by her presence 
and words of sympathy. She was conspicuously engaged in 
works of public as well as private charity, and was always 
aided by her husband, who supplied her with abundant 
means for her benefactions. The Hartford Hospital, the

Old People's Home, and other local charitable institutions 
were often visited by her in her ministry to the unfortunate, 
the sick and the aged. During the Civil War she was actively 
interested, as her husband was, in the welfare of the Union 
soldiers, and she was one of the officers of the Hartford 
Soldiers' Aid Association. 

Mrs. Boardman united with the Methodist Episcopal 
Church in Wethersfield, in 1838, and transferred her rela- 
tions with her husband first to the First Methodist Church 
in Hartford, and later to the South Park Methodist Church. 
Throughout her church life, she was conspicuously earnest 
and faithful, a reverent attendant upon religious services 
and a diligent worker in its ministries. 

After a long and useful life Mrs. Boardman died in her 
home No. 36 Buckingham street, December 14, 1884, having 
suffered a short illness from paralysis. The record of her 
funeral services is made in the Memorial of Mary Francis 
and Williatn Boardman, where also are printed extended 
tributes to her character. The burial was at Cedar Hill 
Cemetery in Hartford. 

In memory of his beloved wife, Mary Francis, Mr. 
William Boardman erected in 1885 the Boardman Memorial 
Chapel in connection with the South Park Methodist 
Episcopal Church. The corner-stone was laid on the 4th of 
August, with appropriate services and the Chapel was 
dedicated February 23, 1886. A description of this beautiful 
edifice and a full account of the above exercises are printed 
in the Boardman " Memorial." In this building, at the left 
of the pulpit platform as seen by one occupying that position, 
is a memorial window, presented by the children of William 
Boardman. It is an appropriate tribute to this dearly beloved

THOMAS JEFFERSON BOARDMAN 

THOMAS JEFFERSON BOARDMAN, son of Wil- 
liam Boardman (No. 2) and Mary Francis (No. 3), was 
born in Wethersfield, Conn., May 27, 1832, in the old Board- 
man homestead. He was educated in the district school and 



^-^^ 





Academy in Wethersfield, and afterward attended the 
Wesleyan Academy in Wilbraham, Mass. In April, 1850, 
having finished his school life, he returned to his home in 
his native tovni, and later, preferring a business to a profes- 
sional career, he began as a clerk in a country store m New 
Britain, Coim., with a salary of fifty dollars a year anH 
board in the family of his employer. Here he remained 
until he accepted a position with his father and brother in 
Hartford, and in 1853 he was admitted into partnership 
with them. His business life thereafter, for many years, was 
merged in that of the firm. He shared in its labors and was 
interested in its enterprises. In due time, when the health 
of his older brother became impaired and the responsibility 
of the business devolved largely upon him, in full sympathy 
with the aims, principles and methods of the firm, he sought 
to fulfill its success. When the older brother, William F. J. 
Boardman, decided to retire from business in 1888, he sold 
his interest to Thomas J. and Howard F. Boardman, who 
assumed the entire control, the former becoming the Presi- 
dent of the company when it was incorporated January 1,

1897. Mr. Boardman is well known among those who are 
engaged in the same line of business and is President of 
the Wholesale Grocers' Association of Southern l!^ew Eng- 
land. 

The extensive business of which Mr. Boardman has been 
for many years the head, has so demanded his time that he 
has been forced to refuse outside engagements. He was a 
member of the large lumber firm of J. W. Starkweather & 
Company, and the firm of Fox, Brusselar & Company, 
decorators and furnishers. When the present school building 
of the South District, Hartford, was built, he was one of 
the committee and had immediate direction of the work, to 
which he gave constant attention. In 1876 he was president 
of the Newsboys' Reading Room Association. Though often 
urged to do so, he has always declined political office. He 
is a member of the Connecticut Historical Society, the Sons 
of the American Revolution, and the Connecticut Society 
of the Order of the Founders and Patriots of America, 
holding the ofiice of historian and registrar of the latter or- 
ganization and being one of its councillors. He is also the 
president of the Boardman Family Association. 

Although Mr. Boardman was brought up as a Methodist, 
he became in early life a convert to the Universalist faith 
and united with that Church in 1863. He was long con- 
nected with the Sunday school of the Church of the Redeemer 
in Hartford, as teacher, assistant superintendent, and presi- 
dent of the teachers' association. For many years he was an 
active worker in the church, serving as a member of its 
board of trustees and one of its chief supporters. He w,as 
also for many years on the State Missionary Board of the 
Universalist Church, and trustee for the State of Connecticut

in the TJniversalist Publishing House in Boston. His 
residence is at No. 77 Buckingham street, Hartford. 

Mr. Boardman was married, 1st, October 14, 1858, by 
Eev. Harvey Moore, at No. 642 Main street, Hartford, to 
Julia Amanda Ellis, who was born January 29, 1838, and 
died November 24, 1858, leaving no children. He was 
married, 2nd, October 24, 1861, by Rev. Asher Moore, in 
the Church of the Eedeemer, Hartford, to Mary Charlina 
Ellis, a sister of his first wife, who was bom September 11, 
1843, and died January 16, 1890. These wives of Mr. 
Boardman were the daughters of Gregory Ellis and Amy 
Amanda Mellen of Warren, Mass. He was married, 3rd, 
by Rev. Alonzo A. Wood, in Stapleton, Staten Island, April 
29, 1893, to Mary Adah Simpson, daughter of Frederick 
Hampton Simpson of Staten Island, N. Y., and Lydia 
Gardner Young, and grand-daughter of William Henry and 
Adah Dean Young. She was born in Windham, Conn., 
November 9, 1860, and was a descendant of Governor 
Bradford. 

The children of Thomas Jefferson Boardman and Mary 
Charlina Ellis are as follows: I. Howard Francis, born 
September 22, 1862, in Hartford. He was married January

of Charles Belcher and Katherine Slater, who was born in 
New York city, June 16, 1866. Mr. Boardman was educated 
in the schools of Hartford, graduating from the High School 
in 1880. He is associated with his father in business and is

MARY LUCINDA BOARDMAN ATWOOD 

Boardman (No. 2) and Mary Francis (No. 3) was born in 
the old Boardman homestead on Broad street, Wethersfield, 
June 1, 1841. She attended the district school and academy 

/ 

of that town and was later a pupil in the Hartford Female 
Seminary in Hartford. In 1857 she removed with her 
parents to Hartford. Then began an interest in the religious 
and benevolent work of that city which has continued for 
many years. She united in 1857 with the First Methodist 
Episcopal Church, then located on Trumbull street. When 
this organization, in 1859, commenced to raise funds for a 
new church edifice, she zealously labored in that cause as 
one of the " Daughters of the New Temple." About 1866 
she became interested in a movement for a Methodist church 
in the south part of the town, and was appointed one of a 
committee of two to furnish the house formerly occupied by 
General William Hayden, which was called The Chapel. 
This building was located just north of where the South 
Park Methodist Episcopal Church now stands and the church 
was the outcome of that enterprise, being organized in 1869, 
and their present edifice being dedicated in 1875. In 1861 
she began teaching a class of boys in the Sunday School of 
the First Methodist Episcopal Church and her pupils followed 
her to the new church. There she also taught a class of 



44 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

young ladies for many years. Later she was much engaged 
in the Chinese department of this Sunday school. One of 
her pupils, Wing Lee, encouraged by her efforts and assisted 
financially by her and others, secured an education, spending 
one year at the Northfield School of Mr. Moody and after- 
wards studying at a University in Canton, China. He is 
now a minister preaching at Hong Kong. To other mis- 
sionary interests she has given liberally of her time, strength 
and means, being for eleven years Corresponding Secretary 
of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, and connected with the King's Daughters, 
assisting Mrs. Ballington Booth in her prison work, with 
the Social Settlement of Hartford, the Children's Aid 
Society, and the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. 
She is also a member of the Ruth Wyllys Chapter of the 
Daughters of the American Revolution, the Connecticut 
Humane Society, and other organizations. She and Mr. 
David A. Spear built the new parsonage of the South Park 
Methodist Episcopal Church on Jefferson street, the old 
parsonage being exchanged for the land. 

On the 28th of December, 1870, Mary Lucinda Board- 
man was married at No. 36 Buckingham street, by Rev. 
N. G. Cheney, to George Woodward Atwood, son of Anson 
Lucius Atwood and Eliza Ann Hooker of Bristol, Conn. 
He was born August 8, 1841. Mr. Atwood was prepared 
for college at Williston Seminary, Easthampton, Mass., but 
was obliged to surrender the hope of a college course on 
account of the impairment of his eyesight. For many years 
he was employed in the office of The Connecticut Mutual 
Life Insurance Company. Later he devoted his attention 
entirely to the business of a florist, achieving remarkable 



MARY LUCINDA BOARDMAN ATWOOD. 46 

success in the cultivation of flowers. The exhibitions of 
flowering plants which he gave were noted for their beauty. 
Mr. Atwood was a member of the South Park Methodist 
Episcopal Church, and was for many years greatly interested 
in its Sunday school work. He was chosen the second 
Superintendent of the school on the retirement of Mr. 
William Boardman and served successfully until he retired 
with the honor of being chosen Superintendent Emeritus. 
He held every ofiice of trust in connection with this church 
and society. In 1895, in company with Mrs. Atwood, he 
made a tour of Europe and the Holy Land. The death of 
Mr. Atwood occurred in Hartford October 23, 1895, and his 
remains are buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery. He is survived 
by his wife, who resides at No. 26 Whitney street, Hartford. 
George Woodward Atwood and Mary Lucinda Boardman 
had one child, Greorge Boardman, who was bom in Hartford, 
May 25, 1872, and died there March 12, 1885. He was a 
child of much promise, thoughtful beyond his years and con- 
scientious in doing that which he thought was right. Before 
he was eleven years old he established a little monthly paper, 
edited and printed by himself, and regularly issued for a 
considerable period with success. He had become a member 
of the South Park Methodist Church and was deeply inter- 
ested in its religious services and work.

1786-ia50 



THIRD GENERATION 

4. 

JOSEPH SIMEON BOARDMAN, son of Levi Bord- 
man (No. 8) and Esther Bordman (No. 9), was born in 
Wethersfield, Conn., May 3, 1780. He was a cordwainer 




d^^^t^yv'-yyf 



by trade. Early in 1804 he removed to Lenox, Mass., where 
he was successfully engaged in the business of tanning. 
Late in the year following he returned to his native town, 
his wife, it is said, refusing to sigTi the deed conveying his 
place in Lenox, which was situated in the center of that 
town. After his removal to Wethersfield he lived for some 
years on the west side of the highway from Broad street 
to South Lane, next north of the Appleton Bobbins place. 
In 1816 he purchased his father's old homestead on Broad 
street, and resided there until his death. 

After his return from Lenox, Mr. Boardman appears to 
have devoted his attention somewhat to the shipping business, 
then of considerable local importance. An examination of 
several account books and diaries kept by him with the great- 
est care up to the time of his death, reveals many interesting 
details of his life. It is learned that while he spent a con- 
siderable portion of his time at his trade and in farming, 
he was also engaged in sending large quantities of onions, 
then the staple crop of Wethersfield, to New York, and sell- 
ing them there on commission. It was while acting a?

supercargo on board the sloop " Eliza " on her passage to 
New York, that he lost his life by shipwreck, November 13, 
1827. He sailed from home on the 10th of November and 
the ship was driven ashore on Long Island in a storm on the 
night of the 13th, all on board being lost. His body was 
found on the beach the next morning by the inhabitants of 
Southhold, who caused it to be interred in a decent manner 
with religious services. On the 20th of that month his family 
heard of his death and his son William went to Long Island 
and brought the body to Wethersfield, where it was reinterred. 
His epitaph is as follows : The Grave of | Joseph S. Board- 
man, I who was I Drowned by Shipwreck in Long | Island 
Sound on his | passage to New York, | Nov. 13, 1827. | Aged 
47 Years. 

Mr. Boardman was a gentleman of strong religious 
convictions. He became a member of the Congregational 
church in 1816, during the closing years of the Rev. Dr. 
Marsh's long service as pastor, and throughout his life, was 
a zealous worker in the cause of religion. In 1817, he was 
one of the fifteen men who formed the " Wethersfield 
Religious Society of Young Men." His private diary, from 
which extracts of considerable length are given in the Board- 
man Genealogy, is a witness to the earnestness and sincerity 
of his Christian life. Concerning his character his son. Dr. 
Joseph Canfield Boardman, wrote in 1893 as follows: " In 
regard to incidents in my father's life, Joseph Simeon Board- 
man, I cannot report anything very striking. His life was 
wholly devoted to the love of God. He was very conscien- 
tious in every event or circumstance of his life. He would 
suffer rather than to offend any one in the slightest degree, 
or in any way that seemed to be an injury to another. He

never was in robust health and yet seldom ill. My mother 
once said to me, ' Your father says he never had a really 
well day in his life.' Whilst his means were quite limited, 
we had a plenty. Our family was called the ' happy Board- 
man family.' " 

The inventory of Mr. Boardman's estate, taken May 21, 
1828, amounted to $1,155.57 and included his homestead of 
two acres and twenty rods with dwelling house and out 
buildings. [Hartford Probate Kecords, XXXVI : 173, 218.]

DANIEL FEANCIS, son of John Francis (No. 12) 
and Rhoda Wright (No. 13), was bom in Wethersfield, 
Conn., December 6, 1770, and lived in that town on High 
street, in the substantial brick house built by him in 1803, 
and now occupied by Mr. Carlos E. Dow. He was a well- 
known sea captain, and was master on many vessels sailing 
to the West Indies and other ports. He made frequent 
voyages from Hartford to New York and Philadelphia, in 
the sloops " Lucy " and " Eliza," between the years 1810 
and 1821, transporting freight for Elisha Shepard & Sons 
of Hartford ; and he was himself a part owner in several 
vessels. In 1795, he was mate on the ship " Minerva," 
Captain Frederick Seymour, master. While in command of 
the brig " Elsa," 92 tons burthen, which sailed froip New 
London December 25, 1796, bound for the West Indies, his 
vessel was captured by the French privateers " La Pensy " 
and " La Thetis," on January 16, 1797, on the high seas. 
The " Elsa " was taken to Guadaloupe, where her cargo, 
which consisted of cattle, salt beef, grain and sundries, and 
was mostly the property of Nathaniel Eaton, was confiscated. 
Captain Francis had on board a " venture " in merchandise 
valued at $225.75, and like the rest of the ship's cargo, it 
was a total loss. Under the French spoliation claims, urged 
by the United States, reimbursement was made by the 
French Government for losses sustained to our commerce.

much time and money to collecting autographs and relics 
relating to the Civil War, acquiring a collection of great 
value, which he presented to the city of Buffalo in 1876.

LEVI B0RDMA:N', son of Joseph Bordman (No. 16) 
and Mary Belden (No. 17), was born in Wethersfield, Conn., 
May 6, 1739. He is known to have had a liberal education. 

During a portion of his life, at least, he was a schoolmaster, 
and sometimes received pupils at his home for instruction. 
He taught the South School in Wethersfield in 1771, and the 
Broad Street School in 1778. His library included books in 
Greek and Latin, indicating that he was a student in those 
languages. 

Levi Bordman was one of the Selectmen of Wethersfield 
for the years 1773, 1774, and 1775, and in this official 
capacity he certified to the muster-roll of Captain John 
Chester's company of one hundred and fifteen men, at the 
starting of that body for the relief of Boston in the Lexing- 
ton Alarm in April, 1775. In this company were four Bord- 
mans, one of whom was Samuel, a brother of Levi. In 
1774, he was one of the contributors to a fund " to relieve 
and incourage the inhabitants of Boston under their present 
unparalleled suffering in the General Cause of American 
Liberty." [MSS. in possession of the late Judge S. W. 
Adams.] In the year following, he assisted his brother, 
Samuel, in establishing a saltpetre manufactory at Wethers- 
field, and furnished the material employed in the manufac-

tiire of this article, large quantities of which were made 
for use in the Revolutionary War. 

Levi and Samuel Bordman also built and owned the 
sloop " Ann," Lemuel Doming, Master, which was used 
to convey a company of seventy-two soldiers, under Captain 
John Hanmer, from Wethersfield to Kew York, at the time 
of the Long Island invasion, August 23, 17Y6. 

Levi Bordman was a soldier in the War of the Revolu- 
tion. He served in the company of Captain Elijah Wright, 
Colonel Roger Enos' Regiment, arriving in camp on the 
Hudson river, June 29, 1778. It is probable that he did 
earlier service, perhaps enlisting in the company of Captain 
Wright in 1776, when as the third company of the Third 
Battalion, it served under General Wooster near New York. 
[^History of Wethersfield, I: 465, 509; Connecticut Men in 
the Revolution, pp. 424, 539.] He had a full military 
equipment, including a breastplate marked " L. Bordman." 
It is known that he died of a wound in the leg, probably 
received in this service. 

Mr. Bordman is said to have lived for some years after 
his marriage in the house of his ancestor, Samuel Boreman, 
corner of Broad street and Fletcher Lane. Included in the 
inventory of his property was a tavern sign, which leads 
to the conjecture that he kept a public-house there, for it is 
known that this building was used for that purpose. It is 
believed that Mr. Bordman was keeping this tavern when, 
on September 19, 1765, Stamp-Master Jared Ingersoll was 
forced by the " Sons of Liberty," who had gathered under 
the great elm tree in front of Colonel John Chester's house 
next adjoining, to enter this tavern, and there sign a written 
resignation of his office. Esther Bordman, wife of Levi, in 



FOURTH GENERATION. 59 

a deposition dated " Wethersfield, November 17, 1779," says: 
" When Col. S. B. Webb's regiment passed through this 
town on its way to Rhode Island, Levi Lattimer came to the 
dwelling house of my husband and boarded with the family 
while they remained here. I washed and mended his clothes. 
My son provided a horse for him to ride on as far as Bolton 
and went with him." 

Mr. Bordman died in Wethersfield, March 22, 1782. 
The inventory of his estate amounted to £1023 15s. 3d. and 
included more than 100 acres of land.

grand-daughter of Samuel Boreman, the settler. She was 
born in Newington Parish, Wethersfield, December 22, 1743. 
After the death of Levi Bordman she married, November 11, 
1784, William Warner, and died September 1, 1797.

JOSEPH CANFIELD, son of Joel Canfield (No. 20), 
and Esther Moss (No. 21), was born in Wallingford, Conn., 
in 1744 and removed with his parents to Chester in the same 



60 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

state when about four years of age. At the death of his 
father in 1761, he was just coming to manhood. From this 
estate there fell to him a part of the homelot, fourteen acres 
in the Pond Hill farm in Chester and land in East Hampton. 
He was made a freeman in Chester, April 12, 1772, and 
resided in that town until sometime during the earlier years 
of the Revolutionary War, when he removed to Salisbury, 
Conn. 

Joseph Canfield united with his brother Joel and sisters 
Esther Comstock and Mary Holmes, April 20, 1768, in a 
deed of land in Chester to his brother Samuel, and also with 
his brothers Samuel Canfield of Marlow, N. H., Hezekiah 
and Isaiah Canfield of Saybrook, and sisters Esther and 
Mary, February 8, 1773, in a deed to his brother Joel Can- 
field. [Saybrook Land Records, VIII: 459, 460.] About 
this time his brother, Joel, gave a bond to secure to him a 
one-third interest in the privilege of fishing at " Canfield's 
fishing place " on the Connecticut river. [Ibid. IX: 83, 84.] 
He also received, December 20, 1773, from his brother Isaiah 
and sister Esther Comstock all their right in their mother's 
third interest in their father's estate [Ibid. VIII: 485; IX: 
84 J. In 1774, he is mentioned in a deed as " Joseph Can- 
field of Saybrook," and was then living in that p^rt of the 
town afterwards set off as Chester. 

Joseph Canfield became interested in the mines that were 
located in Salisbury, which were very actively worked during 
the Revolution, and where many cannon were made. Three 
generations afterwards, some stock in a mine there, which 
had so greatly depreciated that it was thought to be valueless, 
was sold by his descendants at a large price. It seems likely 
that the investments of Joseph Canfield declined in value 



FOURTH GENERATION. 61 

after the war and that he was a heavy loser. About 1813, 
he returned to Chester to live with or near his children who 
had remained there. His son, Joseph, who was a promising 
lawyer in Salisbury, a representative to the General Assembly 
from that town in 1798 and 1799, died at the early age of 
thirty-five in 1803. 

The death of Joseph Canfield occurred in Chester, where 
he is buried, his epitaph being as follows : In | Memory of | 
Joseph Canfield | who died June 1, 1814 | in the 70th year | 
of his age. 

11. 

The wife of Joseph Canfield was HANNAH HAR- 
RISON, daughter of Rev. Jared Harrison (No. 22) and 
Hannah Waterhouse (No. 23), whom he married in Chester 
about 1765. An old account book of her son-in-law, Joseph 
Simeon Boardman, shows that on the 1st of July following 
her husband's death Mr. Boardman went to Chester " to 
fetch up her things " and that she lived with her daughter 
Lucinda in Wethersfield much of her time thereafter. She 
also visited her other children and died in the home of her 
daughter, Mrs. Timothy Dewey, in New York, N. Y., June 
14, 1828, " over 80 years old."

Captain Francis had a long and honorable service in the 
War of the American Revolution. His grandson, Mr. Anson 
W. Francis, states that " he was not absent from his com- 
mand to exceed four months after he enlisted, during the 
war." The existing records fully bear out this statement. 
We find that John Francis was Sergeant in Captain Hezekiah 
Welles' Company from Wethersfield, of Colonel Wolcott's 
Regiment of colonial troops, December, 1775, to February, 
1776. In 1778, he was Second Lieutenant of Captain Elijah 
Wright's Company, in Colonel Enos' Regiment, which was 
operating on the Hudson, arriving in camp there June 29, 
1778. He was First Lieutenant of Captain Samuel 
Granger's Company, in Colonel Levi Welles' Regiment, 
which served at Horseneck, and along the coast of Long 
Island Sound during 1780, and was Captain of the First 
Company of Wethersfield, in the Provisional Regiment, 
organized in 1781.

CAPT. JOHN FRANCIS HOMESTEAD, WETHERSFIELD 
Built before iSco. As it appeared in 1Q04 



FOURTH GENERATION. 63 

From the State Records of Connecticut covering the 
period of the Revolutionary War, we learn that " John 
Francis of Wethersfield " was appointed by the General As- 
sembly, June 10, 1777, Ensign of Captain Nathaniel Bun- 
nell's Company of Wallingford, Conn. He also received the 
following appointments from the same source : — Ensign in 
the " battalions to be raised for the state to continue in the 
same until the first day of January next," in May, 1777 ; 
Ensig-n of the second company of the Alarm list in the 6th 
Regiment of this state, in January, 1778, and Lieutenant of 
the same company in May of the same year; Second Lieu- 
tenant in the First Battalion of Captain Elijah Wright's 
Company " now being raised in this state " in June, 1778 ; 
Lieutenant in the two regiments of militia " being raised," 
in May, 1779 ; Lieutenant in Captain Samuel Granger's 
Company, First Regiment of troops, " for the defense of 
this state " in January, 1780, " to continue in service until 
the first day of January next ;" Captain of the Second Com- 
pany of the Alarm list in the 6th Regiment of the state, in 
April, 1780. 

Captain Francis was frequently elected to office in his 
town. He was chosen a Representative to the General As- 
sembly from Wethersfield in 1800 ; and was a Grand Juror 
in 1771; Lister (or Assessor) in 1782; Constable, 1782, 
1785, 1795, 1797, and 1803; Collector, 1785, 1788, 1792, 
1797, and 1802 ; and Fish inspector in 1786 and 1791. His 
account book shows that he was Committee man of the 
Second School District in 1807 and at that time owner or 
part owner of the sloop " Lucy." In 1816 his son Captain 
Daniel Francis was in command of this sloop. 



64 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

The home of Captain Francis in the later yea,rs of his 
life was on the corner of Hartford avenue, formerly called 
Sandy Lane, and Prison street. South of his residence was 
that of Captain James Francis, and still further south the 
three and one half acre lot of Robert Francis, recorded in 
1652. This house of Captain John Francis he built in 1797, 
and an account of the expenses, in the possession of the

built of brick and was of excellent construction for the time. 
The ell was built in 1807. This house is now standing and 
is doubly interesting as the home of an honored officer in the 
Revolutionary War. 

Administration was issued on the estate of Captain 
Francis to his son Elias, July 12, 1824, and his inventory 
amounted to $3,512.44. It included his home lot of two 
acres, two meadow lots, 65 acres in the west swamp, a 
mountain lot of 28 acres and a wood lot in Eastbury. [Hart-

ELIZUR GOODRICH, son of Hezekiah Goodrich (No. 
28) and Honor Deming (No. 29), was bom in Wethersfield, 
Conn., October 8, 1730, and died March 16, 1785, of small- 
pox, on the Island of Marie-Galante, one of the French West 
Indies. He was buried under a large tree there, and his 



/:^C^ 



name was cut in the bark to mark his grave. 

Captain Goodrich, as the place of his death suggests, 
was a seafaring man, and was a part owner of several 
vessels engaged in the West Indian trade. In October, 
1776, when the supply of salt for the use of the Connecticut 
troops had reached a low point, he was granted special permis- 
sion to make a voyage with his sloop " Betsey," in search 
of this most necessary article.

During the War of the American Revolution, Captain 
Goodrich rendered valuable service to his country. He was 
a private in the 2nd Conn. Regiment, Joseph Spencer, 
Colonel, 9th Company, from Wethersfield, under the com- 
mand of Captain John Chester at the Battle of Bunker Hill, 
enlisting May 15, and being discharged December 17, 1775. 
He served as private. in Colonel Wolcott's Regiment, 3rd 
Company, Selah Hart, Captain, from January to March, 
1777. He was also Sergeant in Lieutenant David Smith's 
Company of Colonel Thomas Belden's Regiment, enlisting 
April 13, and being discharged May 19, 1777. 

As one of the two Representatives from Wethersfield, 
Captain Elizur Goodrich was present at the first session of 
the Connecticut Legislature held after the Declaration of 
Independence. This session opened at New Haven, October 
10, 1776, and continued until ISTovember 7. He was also 
elected Representative in 1778. 

The following records are found in Wethersfield: 

"At a town meeting held in Wethersfield Sept. 29, 1777, Messrs. 
Elizur Goodrich, Chester Wells, Appleton Robbins, Elijah Wright, James 
Stanley, Joseph Bulkley, Martin Kellogg, Janna Deming, and Lieut. 
Isaac Nash were chosen a committee to immediately procure the several 
articles mentioned in the request of the Gov. and Council of Safety of 
Sept. 12, 1777, and transmit the same to Mr. Elijah Hubbard, Commis- 
sary at Middletown, to be conveyed by him to the respective Commis- 
saries of the Battalions of the Continental Army raised in this state," 
etc." 

"At a town meeting of Wethersfield held June 19, 1780 — Foied 
that Mr. Elizur Goodrich, John Robbins, Martin Kellogg and Solomon 
Dunham be a committee to borrow the money necessary to pay the 
bounty offered by the town, on interest until the town shall replace the 
same, and settle with the enlisted persons and take their receipt for 
the same." 

Captain Goodrich's home was on the west side of High 
street in Wethersfield. He built and occupied, shortly before 
the Revolution, the house more recently known as the

" Catharine Brigden place," which, until a few years ago, 
stood upon the site of the present home of Mr. George 
Kellogg. On learning of the Battle of Lexington, Captain 
Goodrich removed the lead weights from the windows of his 
house, moulded them into huUets, and sent the ammunition 
thus obtained to Boston. He numbered among his most 
intimate friends Silas Deana, Colonel John Chester, and 
other Wethersfield patriots. 

Administration on the estate of Captain Goodrich was 
granted to his wife Abigail, June 28, 1Y85, and his inventory 
was taken January 4, 178Y. It shows that he owned a 
considerable estate in lands and one-third of the sloop 
"Sally." [Hartford Probate Records, XXIII: 169, 283.]

FIFTH GENERATION 

16. 

JOSEPH BORDMAN, son of Samuel Boreman (No. 
32) and Sarah Steele (No. 33) was born in Wethersfield, 
Conn., April 6, 1695, and died there January 19, 1771. He 

was the first occupant of the house which his father, Samuel, 
was building, and gave to him by his will in 1720. It stood 
at the extreme south end of Broad street, on the west side, 
where the house of Mr. C. Eugene Adams now stands. 

In May, 1749, the General Assembly conmiissioned 
Joseph Bordman, Quartermaster of Captain Josiah Gris- 
wold's Troop of horse, in the 6th Regiment; and he also 
received his commission as Cornet (standard-bearer) of the 
same troop in October, 1751. It is probable that he did his 
share of duty in the French campaigns during his term of 
military service. He was one of the Selectmen of his town 
in 1755, when they had charge of the French captives quar- 
tered there. " At this time some four hundred French pris- 
oners from Nova Scotia were quartered among the different 
towns, and Wethersfield's proportion was nine. They were 
placed in charge of Nicholas Ayrault, Samuel Curtis, and 
Joseph Boardman, and were allowed to work about the 
village." [Memorial History of Hartford County, II: 469.] 

Cornet Joseph Bordman was chosen Deputy or Represen- 
tative from Wethersfield to the General Court in 1754, 1755, 



72 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

1759, and 1760. In local matters he was a man of prom- 
inence and influence. When the present Congregational 
church edifice was built in 1761, he was one of the largest 
contributors to the fund raised for that purpose. 

Mr. Bordman's time was chiefly devoted to farming, as 
is seen from the following extract from a Lister's Book 
without date, but before 1750: 

" Wethersfield, Old Society."

Mr. Bordman was at one time, 1745, interested in 
shipping, and is taxed on a " 9 tuns Vesel " in that year. 

The will of Cornet Joseph Bordman, which is in print, 
was dated March 13, 1769, and the inventory of his estate, 
taken March 29, 1769, amounted to £1897 9s. 4d.

(Belding) (Xo. 34) and Mary Meakin (Xo. 35), who was

She received £221 8s. 6d. in the distribution of her 
father's estate in 1725 and bequests in the will of her mother 
Mary (Meakin) Belden in 1740. The epitaph on the grave- 
stone of Mr. and Mrs. Bordman in the Wethersfield cemetery 
is as follows : In Memory j of Comet | Joseph Bordman, |

Parish, Wethersfield, October 2, 1711. It is on record in 
Wethersfield that he was first called Richard Bordman, 2nd, 
but his name was afterwards altered to Gamaliel. He lived 
in Newington, and received a deed of the place which he 
occupied, from his father in 1Y53. He was extensively 
engaged in farming at the time of his death, which occurred 
September lY, 1754. He is buried in the Newington 
cemetery and his epitaph is as follows : Here lies Interr'd |

Gamaliel Bordman married about 1738 SARAH SHER- 
MAN, daughter of N"athaniel Sherman (No, 38) and Rebecca 
Burwell (No. 39), who was born in New Haven, Conn., July 
23, 1715. Sarah Sherman was one of a family of five daugh- 
ters, all of whom were unusually gifted. Three of her sisters 
married well known clergymen of Connecticut and among 
their descendants have been persons of distinction. After the 
death of Mr. Bordman she married August 31, 1759, Samuel 
Wolcott, son of " The Worshipful Samuel Wolcott," and died 
March 6, 1794, aged 78. Samuel and Sarah Wolcott had a 
daughter. Prudence, baptized in Newington April 24, 1763. 
Samuel Wolcott died April 11, 1800, aged 88.

JOEL CANFIELD, son of Thomas Canfield (No. 40) 
and Mary Camp (No. 41), was born in Milford, Conn., 



FIFTH GENERATION, 75 

February 7, 1711-12. He removed with his parents to 
Durham, Conn., in 1730, being then eighteen years of age. 
In 1738, having married a daughter of a prominent Walling- 
ford family three years before and probably then residing in 
that town, he bought in connection with Merriman Munson 
the farm of Caleb Lewis on Muddy River. [Wallingford 
Land Records, VIII: 179.] He lived in Wallingford until 
1748, and acqu.ired other lands there, among them a tract 
from his father, " Thomas Canfield of Durham," who had 
purchased lands in Wallingford in 1726 and perhaps then 
contemplated removing thither. [Wallingford Land Records, 
IX: 101; X: 290.] 

On the 30th of June, 1747, Joel Canfield bought of Joseph 
Clark of Saybrook a tract of land lying in Chester parish, 
then a part of Saybrook, extending westerly from the Con- 
necticut river about one mile and containing one hundred 
acres. Here he established his home and resided the remain- 
der of his life. He acquired a considerable estate and at the 
time of his death there were 174 acres in his home farm. He 
also owned another farm in that town of 138 acres, land at 
Hatfield in the " Boston Colony," and 210 acres east of the 
river in Middletown. 

Joel Canfield seems to have been a man of enterprise and 
ability. It is thought that he was also interested in the river 
fisheries and perhaps in its traffic. He died in Chester 
December 24, 1760. Administration on the estate of Joel 
Canfield, " late of Saybrook," was granted to Esther Canfield 
the widow and Samuel Canfield his eldest son, April 21, 
1761, and the inventory of his estate, taken March 17, 1761, 
amounted to £1312 7s. Od. The mother was appointed 
guardian of two minor sons Isaiah and Hezekiah. The final

distribution was made in 1767 to the widow, sons Samuel, 
Joel, Joseph, Hezekiah, and Isaiah, and daughters Esther 
Comstock and Mary Holmes. [Guilford Probate Kecords, 
VIII: 326, 327, 329; IX: 91; X: 133; XI: 58.]

The wife of Joel Canfield was ESTHER MOSS, daugh- 
ter of Samuel Moss (Ko. 42) and Susannah Hall (No. 43), 
who was born in Wallingford, July 30, 1713, was man-ied 
there by Rev. Samuel Wliittlesey, December 1, 1735, and 
died in Chester, May 15, 1769. She is buried there in the 
Center cemetery and her gravestone has the following 
epitaph : In Memory of | Mrs. Esther Canfield | Relict of ]

JARED HARRISON, son of Samuel Harrison (No. 44) 
and Elizabeth Denison (No. 45), was bom in Branford, 
Conn., May 31, 1716. After graduating from Yale College 
in the class of 1736, he studied theology and was licensed to 



FIFTH GENERATION. 77 

preach by the New Haven Association of ministers September 
25, 1739. Early in 1740 he was a candidate for the pastorate 
in Cornwall, Conn., but did not receive a call to settle there. 
In the following year he began preaching in the newly or- 
ganized parish of Chester, Conn., in the northern part of 
the town of Saybrook. In May, 1742, when the parish was 
authorized to form a church, he was chosen its first pastor, 
and was ordained on the 15th of September the same year. 
The exercises attendant upon this event were held in the 
house of Jonathan Hough, the meeting-house not being 
completed. This house was situated on " Wig Hill," where 
it had been customary to meet for religious worship. 

The proprietors of Pattecunk, as the lands in Chester 
were called, conveyed to Mr. Harrison, " the present 
minister," March 10, 1742-3, fifty acres of land. [Saybrook 
Land Records, VI: 149.] On August 25, 1744, they also 
gave him another small tract; and on January 10, 1743-4, he 
bought of Charles Deming one-fourth of a fifty acre lot in the 
first division. [Ibid. VI: 254; VII: 24.] These lands he 
afterwards sold. He continued in this pastorate until August 
14, 1751, when he was dismissed by an ecclesiastical council. 
He returned to Branford, in the North Parish of which town 
he spent the remainder of his life. His death occurred May 
17, 1770, it is said as the result of an accident in which his 
leg was broken. Administration on his estate was granted 
to his brother Capt. Samuel Harrison, October 4, 1770, and 
it was found to be insolvent. In the accounts are several 
charges for care and medical attendance in his last sickness. 
The inventory shows that his library consisted of the following 
volumes: " 1 large old Bible 3:2; Boyls' Dictionary 6:0; 
Coles' Dictionary 4:0; Greek Lexicum 5:0; Virgil's Lattin ;

Jared Harrison married in Chester HANNAH WATER- 
HOUSE, daughter of Abraham Waterhouse (No. 46) and 
Abigail Wolcott (No. 47). Captain Abraham Waterhouse 
kept the " Ministers' Tavern " in Chester, and it is probable 
that the young minister lived with him when he first came 
to the town and until his marriage to the daughter of his 
host. The dates of her birth and death have not been found.

Conn., October 12, 1684. He spent his life in his native 
town, his house being on the comer near the North Brick 
schoolhouse, where his son John and grandson Elias after-

wards lived. He was a tavern keeper, as his father had 
been. At a town meeting held March 12, lYlB-lT, it was 
voted " that Corporal John Francis should be Tavern keeper 
for ye year Ensuing." 

He was one of the largest tax payers of his town. His

He was not an active participant in public affairs, but 
held the following minor town oflSces: Fence viewer, mem- 
ber of School Committee, and Surveyor of Highways. 

John Francis is said to have been a man of extraordinary 
strength, and family tradition has handed down to the 
present time many interesting stories of the remarkable 
feats performed by him. [History of Wethersfield, II : 
338.]

Corporal Francis left a large estate, the inventory of 
which was taken November 6, 1749. [Hartford Probate 
Records, XV: 341, 342.]

John Francis married 1st in Wethersfield, December 30, 
1708, Mary Hatch, who died July 15, 1718. Her grave- 
stone, next to that of her husband, gives her age as 50 years, 
which is probably an error of the stonecutter for 30. He 
married, 2nd, February 12, 1719, Abigail, daughter of 
Nathaniel and Eunice Stoddard, who died August 22, 1723, 
aged 26. He married, 3rd, Lydia (Standish?), who died 
October 12, 1733, in her 36th year. He married, 4th, in 
Wethersfield, October 12, 1735, EUNICE DICKINSON, 
daughter of Eliphalet Dickinson (No. 50) and Rebecca 
Bronson (No. 51), who was born in Wethersfield, July 22, 
1708, and died there May 21, 1770. Her will dated March 
22, 1770, and proved the 19th of June following, names her

lector, and Lister. In May, 1748, he was made Lieutenant 
of the 3rd Company or trainband of the Colony. In the 
Lister's or Assessor's Books his " faculty " is rated as high 
as £40, — a fact which would indicate that he was engaged 
in business of some sort. He was a tailor, and in an old 
account book, under date of December, 1747, we find a David 
Deming credited with £2 12s. " for making Jac't & 
Breeches." He is called a " tailor " in certain deeds. In 
the inventory of Lieutenant Deming's estate, which amounted 
to £795 4s. 9d., a " Tailor's goose," shears, etc., are men- 
tioned. Administration on his estate was granted May 22, 
1771, to David Deming of Sandersfield, Mass., who with 
Elizur Goodrich and l^athaniel Stillman furnished bonds. 
His home lot and buildings were valued at £360. [Hartford

SAMUEL BOEEMAN, son of Samuel Boreman (No. 
64) and Mary Betts (No. 65), was bom in Wethersfield, 
Conn., October 28, 1648. He is called in the town records 

" Gierke," an officer of the trainband, and " Sergeant." 
At the session of the General Court in May, 1681, he was 
" presented " for admission as freeman, being then about 
thirty-three years of age. 

Sergeant Samuel Boreman was, like his father, a cooper 
and farmer by occupation. He was one of the principal 
land holders in Wethersfield, having added to the share 
which he received from his father's estate, by the purchase 
of other tracts of land in the South Field, the Great Plain, 
the West Field and elsewhere. In 1677, he and three others 
received from the town a grant of land in Pipe Staye Swamp 
(in the present town of Newington) for the purpose of erect- 
ing a sawmill, as appears from the following vote at a town 
meeting held in Wethersfield, October 25, of the above year : 
" Liberty was granted to Eman'll Buck, John Billy, Sam'll 
Borman, and Joseph Billy to build a sawmill with sufficient 
ponding, and also 20 acres of land to each of them forever, 
and to be about Pipe Stave Swamp allwise provided the said 
parties make no sale of bord or timber to any other town 
without the consent of Wethersfield townsmen; and to sell 
bords at home at five shillings pr hundred, and slet work

answerable by tbe rate of proportion, and at the mill at 
foure shillings pr hundred, bords and slit work answerable ; 
and at the end of 12 years the Saw Mill to seass if the 
Town see cause, sawing of any timber that gi'oeth on the 
Comon ; and the Mill to bee up and fit to worke at or before 
the last of September next insueing the date hereof." 
[^Yethersfield To\\ti Votes.] This was the first sawmill 
built in Wethersfield. 

Although not prominent as an officeholder, we find that 
Mr. Boreman was Collector for his town in 1683, Lister, 
or Assessor, in 1693 and 1702, and Surveyor in 1694. He 
was also one of a committee appointed to lay out a highway 
to Fearful Swamp in 1687. 

Sergeant Boreman occupied a portion of his father's 
home lot of three acres, on the west side of Broad street, on 
the south corner of Fletcher's Lane. A year before his 
death, he purchased of his son-in-law, Daniel Warner, tv\'o 
acres of land, " with a mansion house " thereon, at the lower 
end of Broad street on the west side. This place he gave 
in his will to his son, and the new house then being erected 
upon it, became the home of five successive generations of 
the family. He died December 23, 1720. His gravestone 
in the Wethersfield cemetery has this epitaph : Here | lyeth 
the I body of 'Mr. \ Samuel Bordman, | who departed this | 
life December the | 23, 1720, in Ye 73 | year of his age. 

Sergeant Samuel Boreman left a larg-e estate, amounting 
to £1,085 18s. lOd. [Boardman Genealogy, pp. 185-192.]

The wife of Samuel Boreman was SARAH STEELE, 
daughter of Samuel Steele (Xo. 66) and Mary Boosey C^o. 
67), who was baptized in Farmington, Conn., December 29,

JOSEPH BELDEN, son of John Belden (No. 68) and 
Lydia Standish (No. 69), was born in Wethersfield, Conn., 
April 23, 1663. His home was in Wethersfield and he was 
one of those who drew lands in the allotment of 1694. He 
was Collector in 1691, Lister in 1669 and 1711, Surveyor 
of Highways in 1706, and was very often chosen to serve 
on local committees. He was called " Clerk " in 1705 and 
afterwards, from which it would appear that he was an 
officer in the trainband. 

The epitaph on his gravestone in the Wethersfield 
cemetery is as follows: Here | lieth the | body of | Joseph 
Belding, | who deceased | Desem'r ye 7th 1724; | aged 62 
years. Administration on the estate of Joseph Belden was

February 4, 1671-2; was married October 27, 1693, and 
died in Wethersfield, March 17, 1739-40. She left a will 
which mentions her daughters Sarah Bumhami, Mary 
Boardman, and Esther Wolcott, among whom her movable 
estate was divided, and three sons Joseph, Thomas, and 
Amos. To Mary Boardman she made the following bequest : 
" one Sorill mare which was of the estate of my brother, John 
Meekings." The will is dated March 12, 1740, and was 
proved the 8tli of April following. The estate was finally 
settled by an agreement among the heirs dated August 4, 
1740. [Hartford Probate Records, XIII: 64, 68, 317.]

RICHARD BORDMAN, son of Daniel Bordman (No. 
72) and Hannah Wright (No. 73), was born in Wethers- 
field, Conn., September 1, 1684. He received from his 
father, March 23, 1710-11, two tracts of land in the section 



SIXTH GENERATION. 91 

of Wethersfield then known as Cow Plain, but now the tovm 
of Newington, one of which contained six acres with a 





dwelling house standing thereon. He settled in this section, 
and took an active part in the formation of the new parish 
of Newington. He was chosen to serve on many important 
committees, such as the committee to collect the minister's 
rates, to build a house for the minister, to select and lay 
out a burying ground, and the school committee. 

Richard Bordman was one of the largest farmers in the 
Newington section. In 1744 his tax list amounted to £120 
4s. He received his commission as Ensign of the trainband, 
October 13, 1726, and as Lieutenant, May 13, 1736. This 
was the first trainband formed in Kewington. 

A bill of sale in the possession of Mr. Wm. F. J. Board- 
man, shows that Lieutenant Richard Bordman sold Septem- 
ber 30, 1725, to Thomas Seymour of Hartford, for £60 
lawful tender, a negro man named " London " or " Lunon." 
He was afterwards sold to Colonel Chester, and it is said 
that he was at one time the "negro Governor of Con- 
necticut." 

The Church records give the death of Lieutenant Richard 
Bordman as August 7, 1756, but the epitaph on his grave- 
stone in the Newington cemetery is as follows: Here lies 
Interr'd | the Body of Lieu' | Richard Boardman | Who

Mr. Nathaniel Sherman died in ISTew Haven, September

which surrounded the First Church, and his gravestone with 
that of his wife, and father, was removed in 1821 to the

THOMAS CANFIELD, son of Thomas Canfield (No. 
80) and Rebecca Adkinson (No. 81), was bom in Milford, 



SIXTH GENERATION. 95 

Corm.., January 5, 1680. His father died when he was nine 
years of age, and his mother married April 28, 1695, Samuel 
Camp. 

Thomas Canfield inherited some property from his father 
and a small legacy from his grandmother, Phebe Canfield. 
His home was in Milford for many years, though he seems 
to have had interests elsewhere. In deeds of land which he 
held there, he is called a " carpenter," a trade which his 
father had followed to some extent. And he is also said to 
have been a blacksmith and wheelwright. In a certain deed 
from Joseph Peck to him, February 13, 1716-7, he is 
called " merchant " and his account book which has survived, 
shows that he had charges against persons in Milford, Derby, 
Middletown, New Milford, Durham, and Saybrook for rum, 
sugar, molasses, thread, needles, pins, etc., doubtless in many 
cases supplies furnished to families who emigrated to those 
towns from Milford. 

On October 11, 1726, Thomas Canfield bought of William 
Salter of Boston, for £75, a tract of land in Wallingford 
consisting of 82 acres, which had been laid out to Samuel 
Koys and was located at a place called " West-Rocks " 
(Cheshire). [Wallingford Land Records, V: 326.] This 
land he held until 1747 when a part of it was sold to 
Samuel Thompson. He afterwards owned other lands in 
that town, being called in a deed of December 6, 1729, 
"Thomas Canfield of Milford." [Ibid. VI: 213], and in 
deeds of 1730 and later "Thomas Canfield of Durham." 
[Ibid. VI: 379, 380, 661; VII: 250, 526; X: 290, 430.] 
As early as 1725, he owned land in Durham, and in 1731 
he made several purchases there. [Durham Land Records, 
V: 34, 43.] Later he became a large land owner in that 



96 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

town, and deeded land to his son, Gideon, in 1746 and 
1749, and to his son, John, in 1753. [Ibid. VI: 11, 75, 
222.] On December 17, 1731, he also bought of Joseph 
Sanford, 100 acres of land in Haddam, and in 1732 and 
1734, land in Middletown. [Middletown Land Records, 
V: 408, 439; VII: 121.] Samuel Willard of Saybrook 
deeded to him, October 24, 1749, land in Chester. [Say- 
brook Land Records, VI: 519.] 

Mr. Canfield spent the last thirty years of his life in 
Durham, and was one of the most prominent men in that 
town. He died in 1760 and his gravestone in the old bury- 
ing ground bears the following epitaph : In | Memory of | 
Mr. Thomas | Canfield | who died Dec^ | 1^' A.D. 1760 | In 
the 80*^ Year | of His | Age | Blessed are the dead ] that die 
in the Lord. 

The will of Thomas Canfield, dated April 2, 1759, 
leaves to his wife, Ann, in addition to what is contained in 
a jointure between them, " one years provisions," " two 
rooms in the house," and a " black apron and handkerchief." 
To the son, Joel, is bequeathed one chest in addition to lands 
given him, which are 200 acres in Middletown, and 75 acres 
in Hatfield. Thomas had £25 in addition to what he had 
already received. Gideon inherited the rest of his 70 acre 
lot, part having been given to John, who also received "10 
acres by Cruttenden " and 20 acres " at the mountains in 
Wallingford." A daughter Mary " incapable of caring for 
herself " is to be cared for by his daughters Hannah 
Baldwin and Ann Coe, to whom he gives lands in Farming- 
ton, a right in Hampshire bought of Jonathan Phelps, a 
50 acre lot in Granville and 26 acres in Killingworth. The 
inventory of his estate amounted to £671 6s. 5 l-2d.

1705-6, MARY CAMP, daughter of Samuel Camp (No. 82) 
and Mary Camp (No. 83). She was born in Milford, 
January ( ?) 21, 1684-5. The Milford church records have 
the following entry under May, 1685 : " Mary, daughter of 
brother Samuel Camp, Sen., baptized at Darby in the time 
of vacancy in this church." She died in Durham and her 
epitaph is as follows : In Memory of | Mrs. Mary | Wife of 
Mr. I Thomas Canfield | who died July 30, | 1740 | In the 
57*^ Year | of Her | Age. 

Thomas Canfield married, 2nd, in . Durham, November

SAMUEL MOSS, son of John Moss (No. 84) and 
Martha Lothrop (No. 85), was bom in Wallingford, Conn., 
November 10, 1680. He received bv deed from his father, 
January 26, 1714, his home lot, orchard, house and pasture 
in Wallingford, and his brother John Moss deeded to him 
his interest in the homestead that was his father's. May 17, 
1720. [Wallingford Land Records, II: 495; III: 320.] 
This was his home and passed to his descendants. He also 
owned other lands in Wallingford, but was not an extensive 
land owner. He deeded, later, one-half of his homestead to 
his son Theophilus, and doubtless lived with him the latter 
part of his life. In 1742, he deeded to his son Isaiah land 
laid out to him on the right of his sister, Mary Munson. He 
was a Deacon in the church there for many years. 

Deacon Samuel Moss died in Wallingford, July 29, 1765. 
He is buried in the cemetery in the center of the village and 
his gravestone bears the following epitaph : In Memory j 
of M"" Deacon | Samuel Moss | he Died July y' 29'*' | 1765 
in y* 85''' year ] of his Age. | The Sweet Remembrance of 
The just I Shall flourish When they Sleep in Dust. In his 



SIXTH GENERATION. 99 

will, dated July 5, 1749, Samuel Moss bequeathed to his 
wife, Susannah, the use of one-half of the homestead and 
one-third of his movable estate. He also mentioned his 
sons, Theophilus, Samuel, and Isaiah, and his six daughters, 
Martha the wife of Samuel Royse, Esther the wife of Joel 
Canfield, Sarah the wife of Jonathan Chapin, Keziah the 
wife of Isaac Lewis, Bethiah, the wife of John Canfield, 
and Lois the wife of David Cook, Jr. " To the first or 
eldest Church of Christ in said Wallingford " he bequeathed 
three pounds. [Xew Haven Probate Records, X: 285, 286.] 
On October 23, 1765, the daughters agreed to a division of 
the movable estate according to the will, " leaving Mother 
Moss her thirds." In this agreement, Esther Canfield is 
termed " Administrator of Joel Canfield's estate of Say- 
brook." [Wallingford Land Records, XVI; 249.] 

43. 

The marriage of Samuel Moss is recorded at Walling- 
ford as follows : " Sam" Mof maried Suseanah Hall bv M' 
Street 15*** of Defember, 1703-4." Her gravestone in the 
Wallingford cemetery has this epitaph: In Memory of | 
M""^ Susannah | y' Wife of Deacon | Samuel Moss | She Died 
March | y* 4*'^ 1766 in y" | 83'' year of | her age. 

The ancestry of Susannah Hall is somewhat uncertain, 
but she is believed to have been the daughter of Samuel 
Hall (No. 86) and Hannah Walker (No. 87). According 
to her age at death she was born in 1684.

SAMUEL HARRISON, son of Thomas Harrison (No. 
88) and Elizabeth Stent (No. 89), was born in Branford, 
Conn,, August 11, 1672. He lived in that part of the town 
afterwards included in the parish of North Branford and 
OAvned a large farm there. He was for years an officer of the 
trainband, being promoted from Sergeant to Ensign in 1697, 
to Lieutenant in 1709, and made Captain of the North Com- 
pany in 1731. 

The death of Samuel Harrison occurred June 30, 1731 
( ?). Administration on his estate was issued to his widow, 
Elizabeth, January 7, 1733-4, and she was made guardian 
of Jared and James, minor children. The inventory of his 
estate amounted to £2,845 15s. 7d. and he owned several 
tracts of land including his home lot of 29 acres, the " Sib- 
bies Hill farm " located just north of the center of North 
Branford and valued at £485, land adjoining " Great Sea 
Hill," one-third part of " Harrison's Neck," and 88 acres 
in Litchfield, Conn. His estate also included a negro man 
named " Zippah " valued at £105 and a negro girl named

Bojkin (No. 91), whom he married July 3, 1707. She was 
born in East Haven, Conn., November 21, 1681, and died in 
Branford in 1757. Administration was issued on her estate

ABRAHAM WATERHOUSE, son of Abraham Water- 
house (No. 92) and Hannah Starkie (No. 93), was born in 
Saybrook, Conn., July 18, 1700. He was one of the earliest 
and largest proprietors of Pattecunk lands, or Chester, in 
the town of Saybrook, and is said to have removed thence in 
1733, and to have built a house there, which became known 
as " Proprietor's Tavern," and later as the " Minister's 
Tavern." 

In May, 1739, " Abraham Waterus " and others, " being 
inhabitants of the north parish of Saybrook, living at a place 
called Pattecunk," presented to the General Court a memorial 



102 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

asking to be made a separate society, and their request was 
granted in May, 1740. [^Connecticut Colonial Records, VIII : 
242, 243, 344, 345.] Three years later, upon the memorial 
of the society of Chester, the Assembly granted " power to 
Captain Abraham Waterhouse of said parish to gather and 
collect " a tax laid on the unimproved lands for defraying 
the parish charges. [Ibid. VIII: 528.] Probably he was 
the Abraham Waterhouse who had been received into the 
Saybrook Church July 3, 1737. He seems to have been one 
of the most interested persons of the parish in religious 
matters. 

In October, 1741, he was commissioned Captain of the 
13th company, a trainband in the 7th Regiment of the Colony 
[Ibid. VIII: 419] ; and in October, 1746, he was empowered 
to sell lands in Chester. [Ibid. IX: 245, 246.] He was 
made a Justice of the Peace of New London county in 1748, 
and was for many years one of the most prominent men in 
Chester. On April 11, 1758, he conveyed to his son, 
Abraham, also of Chester, one-half of all his farm lands of 
two hundred acres, on which he then dwelt. [Saybrook Land 
Records, VII : 435.] The exact date of his death is unknown 
to us, but he appears to have been living in 1765, when his 
son is called '' Junior."

Abraham Waterhouse married, in Wethersfield, Conn., 
about 1726, ABIGAIL WOLCOTT, daughter of Samuel 
W^olcott (No. 94) and Abigail Collins (No. 95), who was 
bom in Wethersfield, June 3, 1707. Captain Samuel 
Wolcott of Wethersfield in his will dated August 29, 1734, 
mentions his daughter, Abigail, the wife of Abraham Water- 
house. [Hartford Probate Records, XII: 261-266.]

JOHN FRANCIS, son of Robert Francis (No. 96) and 
Joan, his wife, was born in Wethersfield, Conn., September 
4, 1658. He bore the title " Corporal," and later was called 
" Sergeant Francis," which indicates that he performed some 
military service and he may have had experience in the 
earlier Indian wars. 

Sergeant Francis was elected Constable in Wethersfield 
in 1692, Sheepmaster in 1697, Collector in 1702, and 
Surveyor of Highways in 1705. In 1707, he was licensed 
to be a tavern keeper and is known to have been so engaged. 

John Francis died in Wethersfield, December 28, 1711, 
a few days before the death of his father, leaving an estate 
inventoried at £713 7s. All of his thirteen living children 
are mentioned in the distribution of his estate, each of the 
daughters receiving £46 18s. 7d. It was distributed by 
agreement April 13, 1716.

John Francis married, 1st, in Wethersfield, February 10, 
1680, Sarah Dix, daughter of Leonard Dix, who died April 
3, 1682, aged 24 years. The will of Leonard Dix, who died 
December 7, 1697, has the following item: " To my son-in- 
law, John Ffrancis, besides what he hath had already, 5 
shillings in pay." 

Sergeant Francis married, 2nd, in Wethersfield, January 
16, 1683, MERCY CHATTERTON, daughter of William 
Chatterton (No. 98) and Mary Clark (No. 99), who was 
born in New Haven, Conn., November 22, 1664. The 
original record of her birth is " Mercy daughter of Wm. 
Chatterton: Novemb: 22nd (64)," her next older sister 
Hannah being born August 4, 1663, and her next younger 
sister, Mary, December 12, 1666. She was not, therefore, 
as old as the epitaph on her gravestone in the Wethersfield 
cemetery indicates : Here lies Interred | the Body of M" | 
Mercy Francies, j Relict to M'' | John Francies, ] who Died 
Oct. I the IS*"* 1745, in | the 83'"'' year | of her Age. 

The evidence of her identity is undeniable. In a deed, 
dated May 13, 1721, Joshua Hotchkiss and Susanna, his 
wife, of New Haven, Samuel Benton and Sarah, his wife, of 
Hartford, and " Marcy Ffrancis of Wethersfield widow " 
convey to their brother, John Hotchkiss of Wallingford, all 
their right to three acres of land in " Coopers quarter " in 
New Haven, in consideration of the " tender love and af- 
fection " he had sho"\vn for more than four years to their 
aged mother, Mary Chatterton. This deed was acknowledged 
by Mercy Francis at Wethersfield, December 8, 1722. [New 
Haven Land Records, VI: 367.] In another deed, dated 
October 27, 1740, and acknowledged by Mercy Francis at 



SIXTH GENERATION. 105 

Wethersfield, November 13th, following, the same parties 
with Mary Hotchkiss of Wallingford, conveyed to Daniel 
Sanford of Milford all their right in 22 acres of land in 
New Haven, which had been deeded to him by William, 
Joseph and Wait Chatterton May 28, 1737, and in the latter 
deed the land is described as land drawn in the name of 
their " honored grandfather, William Chatterton Dec*^," they 
being nephews of Mercy Francis. [Ibid. X : 355 ; XI : 243.] 
At the time of executing this deed, Mercy Francis was nearjy 
seventy-six years of age, her sister Sarah Benton was seventy- 
nine, her sister Susanna Hotchkiss sixty-two and her sister 
Mary Hotchkiss nearly seventy-four.

ELIPHALET DICKINSON, son of Obadiah Dickinson 
(No. 100) and Sarah Beardsley (No. 101), was born in 
Hatfield, Mass., in March 1676-7. He lived in Stepney 
Parish, Wethersfield, now Rocky Hill, and was the ancestor 
of many of the name residing there in later years. 

About 1713, Eliphalet Dickinson, Joshua Bobbins, Jr., 
and Ebenezer Dickinson erected a sawmill in Stepney, on a 
branch of Goffe's Brook, it is believed the earliest in that 
section of the township. On March 5, 1715-16, Eliphalet 
Dickinson and William Blinn received permission from the 
town to flood Deming's Meadow (thus forming the so-called 
"Reservoir " in Griswoldville) for the purpose of increasing 
the supply of water for "Madame Chester's Mill," which 
they had leased for nine years. Mr. Dickinson held several 
town offices. He is called in some deeds a " housewright." 

He is buried in the Rocky Hill cemetery, where the 
epitaph on his gravestone is as follows : Here lies | ye Body 
of I Eliphelit Dickinson, | Dec'd Sept. 9**' 1733, | Aged 54 
years & half. | As you are so was we, | As we are you shall

1728-9 leaves to his wife, Rebecca, one-third of all his estate 
with £20 dowry and names his sons Obadiah, Eliphalet, and 
Eleazer and daughters Sarah, Rebecca, and Eunice. To 
each of his daughters he bequeathed £50. His inventory, 
taken October 30, 1733, amounted to £633 Is. Id. [Hart-

WILLIAM GOODRICH, son of William Goodrich 
(Xo. 108) and Sarah Marvin (Xo. 109), was bom in 
Wethersfield, Conn,, February 8, 1661, and resided there 
throughout his life. He was several times elected to office 
in the town. In May, 1701, he was appointed Ensign of 
the trainband at the north end of the town, and in May, 
1710, was made Lieutenant of the same company. 

Lieutenant Goodrich died December 27, 1737, and his 
will, dated Xovember 27, 1737, was offered for probate, 
December 7th, following. In it he bequeathed to his wife, 
" Mary Ann," with other property, " One-half of (t';', 
negro man George," the other one-half being given to his son 
Joseph. His inventory amounted to £3,079 5s. 3d. It seems 



SIXTH GENERATION. 109 

to include various lands which he had distributed to his sons 

and also " an Indian woman that Ann Powell Jiad given her 

by her father." [Hartford Probate Records, XIIJ: 114- 

116.] 

55. 

The first wife of William Goodrich was Grace, daughter 
of John and Grace Riley, whom he married in Wethersfield, 
ISTovember 22, 1680. She died October 23, 1712, aged 51. 
He married, 2nd, in Wethersfield, June 5, 1714, MARIAN" 
BRETOUN, widow of Dr. Nicholas Ayrault of Wethersfield 
who had " died May 6, 1706, aged 37." She died August 
27, 1741, aged 60. Her name, as above written, is inscribed 
on the tombstone of her first husband : " Doct. Nicholas 
Ayrault, A French Huguenot," in the Wethersfield cemetery. 

In 1686, a company of Huguenots, having been driven 
from France by the revocation of the Edict of Nantes the 
year previous, established a settlement in the l!Tarragansett 
country in Rhode Island. The following are authorities on 
this Huguenot settlement: Potter's "Memoir concerning 
the French Settlements in the Colony of Rhode Island/' 
R. I. Historical Tracts, N"o. 5 ; Mrs. Lee's " Huguenots in 
France and in America;" Baird's "Huguenot Emigration 
to America;" Narragansett Historical Register, I: 18, 19. 
The location of this plantation was " above ye Long Meadow 
Kickameeset," or in what is now the southeast corner of 
East Greenwich, R. I., and it was known in early times and 
to this day is called " French town." Here about forty-five 
families of French Huguenots built their homes, laid out 
fields, and planted orchards with their dearly loved church 
in their midst. Their first agreement with the Proprietors 
of the Narragansett Country, dated October 12, 1686, names 
next to their minister Ezechiel Carre, one Peter Le Breton, 



110 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

who is believed to have been their schoolmaster. Their 
teacher would naturally be named next after their minister 
according to French custom and in the settlement his land 
adjoined " La terre pour L'ecoUe." His name a few years 
later is written " Peter Berton," but it became more com- 
monly Breton or Bretoun in those changes which affected all 
the names of these Huguenot emigrants. Peter Le Breton 
was doubtless the father of Marian Bretoun of Wethersfield. 
This settlement suifered some hardships, their title proved 
to be valueless, and in 1691, the troubles between the English 
and the French led to its abandonment. Its families were 
then scattered. Some of the Le Breton family may have 
remained in the vicinity, where the name is afterwards 
found. Others removed to New York where they subse- 
quently appear in the French church. 

Another family in this company of Huguenots was that 
of Ayrault, who are said by one authority to have come from 
Angers in the Province of Anjou, but by another and later 
investigator to have come from the Isle of Re. Pierre 
Ayrault was their physician and was accompanied by his 
wife and son Daniel. Nicholas Ayrault is said to have been 
his nephew. According to his age at death, as inscribed on 
his tombstone years afterwards, he was born in 1669, and 
was therefore seventeen years old when he emigrated from 
France. The Wethersfield records, however, have the follow- 
ing entry : " Docf Nicholas Ayrault Deceas^ on the 4*'* day 
of March 1705-6 Etatis a: 50 yeas: his age not exactly 
known." [Wethersfield Births, Marriages, and Deaths, I: 
42.] This age at death would place his birth in 1656, and 
his age at emigration as 30 years. He doubtless studied 
medicine with his uncle and at least began to practice under 



SIXTH GENERATION. Ill 

his supervision in Rhode Island, and later in "New London. 
The exact time of his removal to Wethersfield is unknown 
to us, but is thought to have been about the year 1703 as it 
appears from a case in the Hartford County Court that in 
1703 he boarded in his family Samuel Fosdick of Ifew 
London. The births of his children, Esther and Peter, were 
entered in the records there April 5, 1703. 

Hinman, in his " Puritan Settlers of Connecticut," 1846, 
states that Nicholas Ayrault married " Marian Breton or 
Bretoon of Providence, R. I." In this, he was followed by 
Savage. Her residence is doubtless an error, for the marriage 
is not recorded in Providence and there is no indication that 
she ever lived there. Probably they were married in Rhode 
Island in 1698, shortly before their settlement in Wethers- 
field, and possibly she was his second wife.* 



• The following are recorded in Wethersfield as the children of 
Nicholas and Mary Ann Ayrault: Esther, b. Mch. 5, 1698-9; Peter, b. 
Dec. 4, 1702, and Nicholas, b. Oct. 2, 1705. There was, however, another, 
a sister or half-sister of Peter and Nicholas, Mary, who died unmarried, 
according to her gravestone, Aug. 13, 1778, in her 84th year, or as in a 
manuscript death or burial record, Aug. 20, 1778, ae. 85. She was, 
therefore, born not later than 1695. In her will, dated April 25, 1778, 
she mentions her " kinsman Elias Wright," her brothers, Peter and 
Nicholas Ayrault, and a " cousin," Daniel Ayrault. This will was 
proved May 4, 1779. Marian Bretoim Ayrault was born in 1681 accord- 
ing to her epitaph or in 1682 according to the Wethersfield records 
which have the following entry: 

" Marianne Goodrich ye Wid^ of L* William Goodrich, Deceafed on 
the 27th day of August A D 1741. In ye 60th year of her Age." 
It is hardly probable, therefore, that she was the mother of Mary 
Ayrault born in 1695, though the record indicates that she was of the 
other children. Peter married Nov. 12, 1744, Mary Dodd, widow of 
John Francis, who died Aug. 17, 1776, and he died in 1779. In his will 
he mentioned a son Stephen, unmarried and insane; Mary Ann, born 
Sept. 26, 1745, who married May 4, 1769, Simeon Griswold; Elizabeth, 
who married May 5, 1767, James Hanmer and " Lydia Flowers" (prob- 
ably the wife of Joseph Flower) who had died since 1774, leaving a 
child " which is now said to be alive in one of the Floridas." Nicholas 



112 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

The will of Doctor Nicholas Ayrault is dated March 2, 
1706-6. In it he bequeaths property in France, mentions 
his son, Peter, and wife, Marian, who was to have the disposi- 
tion of his estate so long as she continued a widow, but if 
she married, two-thirds was to be distributed among his 
children. He included in the bequest to his wife, his "debts," 
doubtless payments due him in his practice. Some of these 
she afterwards attempted to collect in court from parties in 
New London, from which it is inferred that he had formerly 
lived there. Though Doctor Ayrault is believed to have had 
lUieans we find no record of his holding real estate in 
Wethersfield or any distribution of such property at the 
time of his wife's second marriage. His will does not 
mention any and his inventory is missing. Hinman says, 
" The house which he built stood on the next lot south and 
adjoining the residence of Captain Jesse Goodrich, deceased, 
in Wethersfield." After his death, on March 19, 1710-11, 
Marianne Ayrault bought of Benjamin Deming his interest 
in " one Home lot with a Mansion house thereon " consisting 
of one and one-half acres, which was bounded north on land 
of Lieutenant William Goodrich, her second husband. This, 
she sold, August 25, 1712, to Paul Collin, and the deed 
informs us that it was located " near the middle or center 
of said town." [Wethersfield Land Records, IV: 1, 67.] 
Possibly Doctor Ayrault had lived on this place and in 



married April 17, 1730, Jane, daughter of Daniel Stocking of Middletown, 
who died Oct. 26 (31 MS, Rec), 1783. He died April 29 (May 2, MS. 
Rec), 1775. They had, besides several children who died young, James, 
born Sept. 17, 1730, Daniel, born Dec. 8, 1735, and Jane, born March 6, 
1741-42, who married Ashbel Riley and died Dec. 7, 1810. These three 
children are named in a will of Mary Ayrault, dated 1774, as those of 
her " brother " Nicholas. It is possible, however, that Marian Bretoun 
was older than the records indicate, as such errors were common.

DAVID GOODRICH, son of William Goodrich (No. 
112) and Sarah Marvin (No. 113), was born in Wethers- 
field, Conn., May 4, 1667. He spent his life in his native 
town and died there June (Jan. g. s.) 23, 1755, after a 
long life of public service. 

" Sergeant David Goodrich," as he was then known, 
was, in May, 1704, commissioned by the General Court, 
Lieutenant of the company of " souldiers raised in the countie 
of Hartford " for the expedition to march to the relief of 
Hampshire County, Mass., where the Indians were making 
trouble for the colonists ; and again, in December of the same 
year, he was dispatched for another campaign. In the cam- 
paign of 1709, he served as Captain, Adjutant, and Quarter- 
master, as is seen from the following action of the General 

15 



114 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

Court in October, 1710 : " This assembly doth grant and 
allow to Captain David Goodrich of Wethersfield, for his 
care and service as quartermaster of the regiment of this 
colony at the Wood Creek the last year, the sum of six 
pounds, besides the wages that hath already been allowed 
him as adjutant of the said regiment." [^Connecticut 
Colonial Records, IV: 177.] He served as Captain in the 
expedition into Hampshire County in February, 1712. On 
May 12, 1715, he was confirmed Captain of the north com- 
pany or trainband in Wethersfield. He was appointed one 
of the " Committee of War " in October, 1723, with full 
power to act during the " present war," and in May, 1725, 
was on a similar committee, then bearing the rank of Colonel. 

" In May, 1723, three companies were sent under com- 
mand of Major Joseph Talcott, of Hartford, into Hampshire 
County. One of these, numbering sixty men, was from 
Wethersfield, and commanded by Captain David Goodrich. 
In February, 1724, he went north again; this time probably 
as far as Fort Dummer, near the present Brattleborough, 

then the only settlement in what is now Vermont 

Goodrich remained in Massachusetts most of the time until 
the close of the war in December, 1725." [Judge S. W. 
Adams in Memorial History of Hartford County, II: 467.] 

In civil, as in military life, we find Colonel Goodrich 
to have been frequently honored. He was Deputy or 
Representative from his town from 1716 to 1740, at almost 
every session of the General Assembly during this long 
period, serving on many important legislative committees. 
He was several times a member of the Governor's Council, 
in 1726, and later. During the greater part of his life he 
was Justice of the Peace, and for many years a Justice of 



SIXTH GENERATION. .115 

the Quorum. In his town he was frequently chosen to office, 
serving as Lister in 1692, Constable in 1695, Collector in 
1696, and Selectman in 1702, and in subsequent years. In 
1719 he was elected Town Treasurer " to stand until the 
town see cause to choose another ; " and was very many times 
Moderator of the town meetings. 

Colonel Goodrich's house stood on the west side of Hiffh 
street, on or near the site of the house erected by his grand- 
son. Captain Elizur Goodrich, about the time of the Revolu- 
tion, and more recently known as the " Catharine Brigden 
place." This lot, containing one acre and sixty rods, measur- 
ing six rods in breadth in front, and five rods in the rear, 
was the north portion of the home lot of Thomas Wright 
(son of the settler), and was purchased by Colonel Goodrich 
May 27, 1689. In the original record of the transfer, the 
grantee is called " David Goodrich, Tailer." [Wethersfield 
Land Records, III: 253.]

David Goodrich married, 1st, in Wethersfield, March 7, 
1688-9, Hannah Wright, daughter of Thomas Wright and 
Elizabeth Chittenden, who was born there March 10, 1671, 
and died April 27, 1698. Her children, the five older, are 
mentioned in the will of her brother, Thomas Wright. 

Colonel Goodrich married, 2nd, in Wethersfield, Decem- 
ber 1, 1698, PRUDENCE CHURCHILL, daughter of 
Benjamin Churchill (No. 114) and Mary, his wife, who was 
born in Wethersfield, July 2, 1678, and died May 9, 1752.

SAMUEL DEMIISTG, son of John Deming (No. 116) 
and Honor Treat (No. IIY), was born in i^Wethersfield, 
about 1646. He spent his life in his native town and died 
there April 6, 1709, " in his 63d year near out " as the town 
records give it. He received by his father's will, the home- 
stead on High street containing nine acres " with all the 
buildings thereon," and probably lived there, at least the 
latter part of his life. 

Samuel Deming left no will. Administration on his 
estate was granted to his wife, Sarah Deming, September 

5, 1709. The inventory of his estate was presented March 

6, 1715-16, but a settlement was not made until March 4, 
1728-9, when an agreement to that effect was signed by 
" Sarah Churchill, formerly ye widow of ye said Dec''," 
John, David, Samuel, William and Honor Deming. [Hart- 
ford Probate Records, Distributions.] 

59. 

The marriage of Samuel Deming as recorded in Wethers- 
field is as follows : " Sam" Deming & Sarah his wife were 
Maryed by Capt John Chefter Comiffr March 29, 1694." 
In the margin is the date " April 1st, 1695," probably the 
date of entry, and following the entry are the names and 
dates of birth of the children. [Wethersfield, Births, Mar- 
riages, and Deaths, I: 61.] The maiden name of the wife 
was SAEAH BUCK, who was a daughter of Emanuel Buck 
(No. 118) and Mary Kirby (No. 119).* She was born in 

* The erroneous statement of Goodwin in his Genealogical Notes, 
page 234, that Samuel Deming " married Sarah Kirby, daughter of John 
Kirby of Middletown/' has been followed by the author of the Kirby 
Genealogy and many others. Probably Goodwin had some reason to 
know that she was an heir of John Kirby and inferred that she was his 
daughter. His daughter, Sarah, married Samuel Hubbard. See No. 238.

Wethersfield, April 1, 1669, being the third child of Emanuel 
Buck by his second wife. 

After the death of her husband, and in 1715 or shortly 
before that date, she married as his second wife. Lieutenant 
Benjamin Churchill of Wethersfield. His first wife had 
died in 1712 and he died about 1729. In a division of land 
in Middletown, November 16, 1716, she has a place among 
the heirs of John Kirby's daughter Mary Buck, as " Ben- 
jamin Churchill and his wife Sarah," and in an agreement 
as to the estate of Samuel Doming, March 4, 1728-9, she 
signs herself as Sarah Churchill. She died Sept. 3, 1754, 
in the 88th year of her age. (Bible Kecord.)

SIXTH GENERATION. 119 

January 2, 1667. He removed to Wethersfield, Conn., 
where he drew land in the allotment of 1694. Two years 
earlier he had bought of Daniel Graves, then of Springfield, 
a home lot on the east side of Broad street, Wethersfield, 
to which he added in 1702, by purchasing from Joshua 
Robbins' land on the south. He was a glazier by trade, 
having learned that of his father, Philip. 

John Russell held several offices in Wethersfield, being 
Constable in 1703-4, and one of the School Committee in 
1712 and 1718. In 1714 he was made a Sergeant in the 
military company and thereafter usually bore that title. 

Sergeant Russell died in Wethersfield and his epitaph 
is as follows: Here lies Interr'd | the Body of Mr. | John 
Russel, who | died Jan'r the | 16'*^ 1746. In the | 81"' year of

SAMUEL BOREMAN of Ipswich, Mass., and Wethers- 
field, Conn., son of Christopher Bormau and Julian Carter, 



(rrnvOAxy 



was the emigrant ancestor of the Boardman family. He 
was born in Banbury, Oxfordshire, England, in 1615, and 
baptized there August 20th, of the same year. About 1620, 
he removed with his parents to Clay don, a village near 
Banbury, where his early life was spent. He first appears 
as a settler of New England in Ipswich, Mass., where in a 
list of inhabitants without date, he is called a " cooper " ; 
and he had land recorded to him there August 22, 1639. It 
is probable that he had arrived in this country some little 
time previous to this, perhaps coming in April, 1638, on 
the ship "New Supply," for it is known from the journal 
of Mr. John Josselyn, a passenger, that one by the name 
of Boreman was on board this vessel.

Samuel Boreman's stay at Ipswich was not a long one, 
yet during this period he owned three different homesteads. 



1-24 



BOARDMAN ANCESTRY, 



The first of these, which was granted to him by the town, 
was in the northwest part of the toAvn, at the west end of 
High street. 

In 1641, or durinc; the previous year, Samuel Boreman 
disposed of all his property in Ipswich, and removed to 
Wethersfield, Conn. His first purchase of land there, as 
far as known, was a homestead of three acres, with a barn 
and cellar, which was recorded April 9, 1645. It was on 
tlie east side of Broad street, a little north of Plain Lane, 
and near where the great elm now stands ; and is thns entered 
in the records of the town : " One piece whereon a cellar 
and barn standeth, containing three acres more or less; the 
ends abnt against the Broad St. north west, and the plain 
south east; the sides against the honse lot of Mr. Chester 
north east, and Richard Park south west." This house lot, 
which he bought of Lesley Bradfield, he sold to John Lat- 
timer before June 22, 1646. His second homestead was 
on the west side of Broad street, near the house now owned 
and occupied by the Town Clerk, Mr. Albert H. Galpin. It 
was purchased of Mr. Evans on or before March 25, 1646, 
and was sold January 1, 1649. His third homestead, which 
was on the east side of Broad street, at the lower end, was 
recorded December 19, 1649. This, he afterwards exchanged 
with Henry Palmer for a house and lot on the east side of 
High street, near the foot of the present Prison street. This 
last house and lot, which was his fourth, he sold August 
23, 1659, to Samuel Smith. On Ts^ovember 3, 1659, he 
purchased of Nathaniel Dickinson, wlio had removed to 
Hadley, Mass., a homestead extending from Broad street 
westward along Fletcher's Lane to Bell Lane (now South 
Main street). This place is described as " One house lot 



«

with house thereon con. 2 acres & a half more or less, th§ 
ends abutting on the Broad St, east and the Long street 
west, and upon the highway north, and on lands of John 
Kilborn south." Upon this land five generations of his 
descendants lived, the property remaining in the possession 
of the family almost a century and a quarter. 

Samuel Boreman was an extensive land owner, having 
purchased no lass than fifty-five pieces of land in Wethers- 
field, aggregating 755 acres. This was exclusive of an eighth 
part in Robert Eose's lands. Rose had 312 acres in one 
tract on the east side of the River, and other lands on both 
sides of the River. At the time of his death, Mr. Boreman 
possessed not far from 350 acres, including several grants 
from the town, and 200 acres which he received from the 
Indians. The Indian chief, Turamuggus (son of the Sachem, 
Sowheag), gave to Mr. Boreman and Thomas Edwards 
jointly, January 26, 1673, "out of respect" for them, 
a tract of land containing 400 acres, at Assawasick, in 
what is now East Glastonbury. This is the earliest deed 
next after one grant of land at Beckley Quarter, made 
by Indians to private individuals in the township. Mr. 
Boreman also owned land in the southern part of the 
township, or what now constitutes the tovm. of Rocky Hill. 
Indeed, he was the first to receive a grant of land in that 
section of Wethersfield. On January 2, 1649-50, it is 
recorded that he was granted thirty acres bounded east on 
the river, north on what was later reserved for a ship- 
yard, south by the stream known as Fog Brook, extending 
westerly up the hill which slopes from the river's edge. 
In after years this tract of land became of great com- 
mercial importance. Situated as it is along the river front, 



126 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

it has often been occupied by stores and warehouses; and 
at the present time the foundry, the railroad station, and 
several ancient residences are located on this site. 

The name of Samuel Boreman is often found in the 
records of Wethersfield. He was chosen Townsman or 
Selectman for eight years, Lister or Assessor for two years, 
rate maker. Surveyor of Highways, Constable, and was often 
appointed to lay out highways, town bounds and individual 
grants of land. In church affairs as well, he took a prominent 
part, and served on committees to " procure a minister," 
'^ seat the meeting house," to settle differences, etc. 

We learn from the records of the Particular Court that 
Mr. Boreman was a juror, October 1, 1646, and that between 
the years 1646 and 1662 he was chosen fifteen times to fill 
this office. He was also a member of the Grand Jury in 
1660 and 1662. He first represented Wethersfield as a 
Deputy to the General Court, October 1, 1657, and was 
elected in all to eighteen terms, the last in 1672. On 
Octol)er 0, 1662, when Connecticut's famous charter, which 
had just been procured in England from King Charles II. 
by Governor Winthrop, was " first publiquely read in audienc 
of ye Freemen," Samuel Boreman was present as one of the 
Deputies. Sergeant John Nott and he were " appointed 
to notify those in Wethersfield indebted to the country in 
behalf of Captain Cullick to provide and prepare payment 
to enable the country to discharge such sums as should be 
charged by Governor Winthrop for procuring the charter 
for the Colony." 

In 1649, Samuel Boreman was appointed by the General 
Court, Sealer of Weights and Measures, and in 1659, 
Customs Master of Wethersfield, the first to hold that office.

He was also selected by the General Court to serve on com- 
mittees to settle church difficulties, to lay out the new town 
of Haddam, to fix the bounds of Middletown and settle its 
difficulties with the Indians, to lay out the bounds of the 
proprietors in !N^aubuc, to settle estates, etc. 

Of Samuel Boreman, Mr. Hinman says : " Few of the 
first settlers of Connecticut came here with a better reputa- 
tion or sustained it more uniformly through life, than Mr. 
Boreman." 

He died in April, 1673, leaving an estate inventoried 
at £742 15s. Od. [Boardman Genealogy, pp. 158-180.]

Samuel Boreman married about the year 1641 at the 
time of his removal from Ipswich to Wethersfield, MARY 
BETTS, daughter of John Betts (No. 130) and Mary, 
his wife (No. 131), who was born about 1623 in England. 
She was living in Clay don in 1627, but afterwards emigrated 
to New England with her mother, the widow Mary Betts. 
She survived her husband more than eleven years and died 
in Wethersfield in August, 1684, aged about 61 years.

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF SAMUEL BOREMAN. 

The story of a letter written more than two hundred 
and fifty years ago, by Julian Boreman in England, to her 
son Samuel in America, which played so important a part 
in the discovery of the English home and ancestry of the 
Boardman family, has been fully and interestingly told in 
the Boardman Genealogy published a few years since. The 
scenes so inseparably associated with the life of the young 
Samuel and his forbears have been faithfully described. 
As it is the purpose of this volume to treat more especially 
of the American ancestors in the several lines through which 
William Boardman and his wife, Mary Francis, trace their 
descent, it is proposed to give here, merely a brief review 
of the results hitherto obtained, in so far as they relate to 
Samuel Boreman, the emigrant, and his immediate ancestry. 

L 

WILLIAM BOREMAN of Banbury, Oxfordshire, Eng- 
land, in 1525, was, it is believed, the father of Thomas 
Boreman of Claydon, from whom nearly all of the Board- 
man name in America are descended. His name appears 
in a Lay Subsidy list for Banbury Hundred in 1525, where 
a tax of 40s. 7d. is levied on his goods. He is the only 
Boreman in this list, but in 1546 five other Boremans are 
found living in towns near Banbury.

LETTER OF MRS. JULIAN HOREMAN FROM CLAYDON, ENGLAND, TO HER 

SON SAMUEL IN IPSWICH, MASS., FEBRUARY 5, 1641. 

Orif^inal in possession of IVilliatn F.J. Boardman. 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 129 

11. 

THOMAS BOREMAN "the elder/' probably son of 
the preceding, was of Claydon in 1546. The first mention 
of him we find in a Lay Subsidy list for that year, in which 
he is taxed £3 Os. 3d. on his goods. The parish Register 
records his burial, December 9, 1580. This date should 
undoubtedly be December 9, 1579, as appears from the 
Probate Records. From the inventory of his estate, we 
learn that he cultivated a farm, and perhaps in addition 
to this, judging from the number of carpenter's tools, among 
his effects, devoted some of his time to carpentry or working 
in wood. No records of his marriage or of the births of 
his children have been obtained, since the Parish Register 
does not begin until 1569. He mentions in his will, dated 
April 3, 1576, and proved May 2, 1580, a wife, Isabel, who 
survived him, and the following children: 

Children of Thomas and Isabel Boreman. 

I. William, m. Annis ; bur. Jan. 10, 1612-13. 

II. Cicely or Sisley, m. May 8, 1576, John Russell. III. 
Christopher, bur. Oct. 10, 1584. IV. John, bur. Dec. 9,

29, 1593. VI. Thomas the younger, m. Feb. 16, 1579-80, 
Dorothy Gregory; bur. June 13, 1587. VII. Elizabeth, m. 
Nov. 17, 1584, Thomas Symkins. VIII. Joane, may have 
been either of two Joane Boremans, who m. respectively, 
Nov. 24, 1585, Humphrey Welch, and June 10, 1585, John 
Mason. IX. Ann, bur. Jan. 21, 1575-76, supposed to have 
been another daughter, who died before her father. 

III. 
THOMAS BOREMAN, " the younger," son of Thomas 

" the elder," was born in Claydon, probably about 1560. He 
17 



130 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

married February 16, 1579-80, Dorothy Gregory, and had 
by this marriage two children whose baptisms are recorded 
in the Clay don ^Register. He was buried June 13, 1587. 
There is every reason to believe that the house of Thomas 
Boreman is still standing at Claydon, as shown in the il- 
lustration. It adjoins the house and yard of Felix Carter, 
whose daughter, Julian, became the wife of Christopher, 
the son of Thomas Boreman. This house dates far back 
of 1600, and was probably the house of Thomas Boreman's 
father, though one cannot look for other evidence of this 
than is found in the circumstances that this house was stand- 
ing in 1579 when Thomas Boreman " the elder " died, that 
in so small a hamlet as Claydon such would naturally be 
the case, and that the son did succeed his father in the care 
of the home, he and his mother Isabel being residuary 
legatees. The house also has a hall, such as the inventory 
of the father's estate indicates as being large enough for 
a living room. The addition was built fully 100 years later 
than the main part of the house. It seems altogether certain, 
therefore, that this house was the original home of the Bore- 
man family in Claydon.

CHRISTOPHER BOREMAN, son of Thomas Bore- 
man, the younger, and Dorothy Gregory, was bom in Clay- 
don, Oxfordshire, England, being baptized there December 
1, 1581. Soon after his marriage in 1604, he removed to 
Banbury, the principal town of the neighborhood, situated 
seven miles south of Claydon. On the death of his father- 




HOUSE OF THOMAS BOREMAN, CLAYDON, ENGLAND 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 131 

in-law, Felix Carter, he returned to Claydon, probably to 
live with and care for the widowed mother. He was presum- 
ably not a husbandman, but the master of some trade at 
which he was employed in Banbury. When his sister-in-law, 
Elizabeth, mother of Thomas Boreman of Ipswich, Mass., 
made her will, he was one of those whom she asked to be an 
overseer, and he was also one of the witnesses to it, signing 
with his name, not mark. He died about ten years after 




his return to Claydon, and was buried there, April 1, 1640. 
The wife of Christopher Boreman was JULIAN 
CARTER, daughter of Felix Carter and Margaret, his 
wife, who was baptized in Claydon, December 20, 1583. 
She married Mr. Boreman November 19, 1604. In the 
family of her father, she was a favorite, being the one chosen 
to care for her mother in her declining years, and receiving, 
perhaps on this account, her father's house and part of his 
land. She was also the residuary legatee of her mother, 
and received a special legacy from her youngest brother, 
Richard Carter. She was evidently a woman of intelligence 
and unusual graces of character. It was through a letter 
written by her to her son, Samuel Boreman in New Eng- 
land, that the English ancestry and home of the Boardman 
family were discovered. The last known of her is through 
a letter of her daughter, Elizabeth Middleton, of London, 
to Samuel Boreman of Wethersfield, Conn. ; she was then, 
in 1661, living and in good health at the age of 78.

FELIX CARTER of Claydon, Oxfordshire, England, 
first appears in the Claydon records July 28, 1577, when the 
baptism of his son, Peter, is recorded. As there are no 
records of two older children, it is probable that he had 
recently come to Claydon. He was one of the appraisers 
of the estate of the first Thomas Boreman, May 2, 1580. 
In 1610, we find his name in a Lay Subsidy List for Clay- 
don ; his tax, ii s. viii d., is on lands. He married Margaret 
and had by this marriage nine children. He was buried 
May 29, 1619. His will (nuncupative) was testified to by 
the witnesses on the same day. To his daughter, Julian 
Boreman, he gave " xli & Dunes house with thaulf the 
aurcheard to shee & her heres begotten of hir body." His 
widow, Margaret Carter, survived him about a year and a 
half. Her will is nuncupative, and is dated October 14, 
1621; her estate was inventoried the 12th of November 
following. The house at Claydon, which was the home of 
Felix Carter, is presented in an accompanying illustration. 
It adjoins that of Thomas Boreman, and was bequeathed 
with its orchard to Julian Boreman and her sister, to be held 
in the interest of their mother, Margaret Carter, during her

life. This house is clearly the one indicated in the will and 

inventory of Felix Carter, and was suited to his standing 

and estate, being the only one in Claydon that satisfies the 

conditions.

SAMUEL BOREMAN of Ipswich and Wethersfield. 

66. 

SAMUEL STEELE, son of John Steele (No. 132) and 
Rachel Talcott (No. 133), was born in 1626 in England, 
probably at Fairstead, Essex County, or near there. He 
came with his parents to New England, remaining with 
them until his maturity and settling in Fannington. 

It is stated in the will of John Steele, dated January 
30, 1663, that at the time of Samuel's " marriage with Mary 
Boosy," his father had given him " a parcel of Land with 
a tenement standing on it, wch parcel of Land contains by 
estimation two Acres, abutting on the highway east and 
River west, and William Judds Land south, and John Steeles 
Land North ; As also a smal parcel of Land on wch his Stil- 
house Stands, Containing by estimation nine roods." This 
marriage gift was confirmed to Samuel Steele in the above 
mentioned will, and it doubtless locates his home in Farm- 
ington. He also received by this will " a silver Bowie, 
wch was mine owne. Marked wth three Silver Stamps and 
an S., all on the upper end of ye bowle," one-half of all 
his father's books, and his " gold scales and weights belong- 
ing to ym." 

Samuel Steele was a prominent man in Farmington, 
representing that town in the General Court in 1668-9, and 
from 1672 to 1677. He was appointed "Ensign" of the 



134 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

trainband, and in 1678, Lieutenant, and thereafter was 
known as " Lieutenant Steele." He removed to Wethers- 
field during that year, and was elected Townsman there for 
1678-9, and was chosen to lay out lands in 1681. He was 
also the Deputy from that town to the General Court at 
the October session in 1681. His home in Wethersfield 
was on the west side of Broad street, and " in 1678, the 
tovn\ allowed him to set his front fence further into the 
street." In 1685, he inherited with l^athaniel Stanley, the 
homestead of James Boosey on the same street next north of 
Richard Treat. 

Lieutenant Steele's death occurred in Wethersfield, 
August 14, 1685. In his will, dated June 10, 1685, and 
proved September 3rd following, he mentioned his wife, 
" four daughters," and two sons, James and Ebenezer. His 
housing and lands in Wethersfield and Farmington were 
bequeathed to his sons. James was empowered to take his 
choice and settled in Wethersfield. He also left to them in 
equal proportion his " share in the saw mill." To each of 
his daughters, he bequeathed £20. The property in Farm- 
ington was inventoried at £457 5s., and that in Wethersfield 
at £725 7s. lOd. making the amount of his estate, £1,182 
12s. lOd. [Stiles's History of Wethersfield, II: 665; Hart- 
ford Probate Records, IV: 112, 113, 231-234.] 

67. 

MARY BOOSEY, daughter of James Boosey (No. 134) 
and his wife, Alice (No. 135), was born probably in Wethers- 
field, Conn., September 10, 1635. She married Samuel 
Steele about 1651, and died in Farmington in 1702. In 
the will of her father was the following legacy : " I give to 
my daughter Mary Boosey £50 at the age of 21 years or at 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 135 

the day of her maridge." It was also provided that if any 
of the children " shall prove iindutiful or stiibborne, and will 
not be ruled by their mother, it shall be in the power of 
their mother to take from those weh is the iindutifullest as 
she shall see cause." She and her sister Sarah Stanley 
were plaintiffs in 1684 in a suit to recover certain lands 
claimed to have been left them by their father, James Boosey, 
and unlawfully disposed of by John Burr who had married 
Esther, the widow of Joseph Boosey their brother.

JOHN BELDEN, son of Richard Belden (No. 136), was 
born about 1630, probably in England, and came to Wethers- 
field with his father. He lived there on the east side of 
Broad street where he kept a tavern. On February 14, 
1673, the town passed the following vote: "John Beldan 
was voated and chosen ordnary keeper for the entertainment 
of straingers and travillers according as the law Req(uires)." 
Judge Adams says, in the Memorial History of Hartford 
County [Vol. II, page 460], that " John Belden had a house 



136 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

on each side of Broad street, but the ordinary was probably 
in that on the east side." In 1670, he drew land in the 
"Mile-in-Breadth " allotment, and in 1673, bought Samuel 
Boreman's land in the South Field and six pieces of meadow, 
swamp and upland of Will Gull. The same year he also 
exchanged land with John Betts and Mary Betts Boreman. 

John Belden was active in the affairs of his town, serv- 
ing several years as Townsman, and in minor official capac- 
ities. We find his name in a list of " Troopers presented 
to and allowed by the General Court," March 11, 1657-8, 
under the command of Major John Mason. This was the 
first Connecticut cavalry. In 1669, his name occurs in a 
list of Wethersfield freemen. A due bill given to him in 
1662 is thought to indicate that he was at that time a 
merchant. [Stiles's History of Wethersfield, II: 77.] 

John Belden died June 27, 1677, aged 46, leaving an 
estate of £911 5s. 7d. His inventory was taken August 30, 
1677. His heirs were the widow, John aged 19 years, 
Jonathan 16, Joseph 14, Samuel 11, Daniel 7, Ebenezer 4, 
Sarah 9, Lydia 2, and Margaret 5 months. In 1697, the 
Court ordered Jonathan Belden, the administrator, " to pay 
to Lydia Kellogg & Margaret Kellogg from their Father 
Belding's estate." [Manwaring's Hartford Probate Records, 
1:181.]

John Belden married April 24, 1657, the first name of his 
wife being LYDIA, and it is said that she was a daughter of 
Thomas Standish of Wethersfield (No. 138) and his wife 
Susanna. [Stiles's History of Wethersfield, II: 77; Porter 
Geriealogy, p. 106.] Others have stated incorrectly that she 
was a daughter of Thomas Wright 1st. There are some indica- 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 137 

tions that she may have been Lydia Standish and perhaps 
some positive proof exists which is unknown to us. She 
survived her husband and was living March 6, 1678-9, when 
the distribution of his estate occurred, receiving £100 from 
his personal property.

JOHN MEAKIN, whose name is also spelled in the 
records Meakins, Meekins, Mekins, Mekyns, Makin, and 
Maken, and was doubtless pronounced like the last, is sup- 
posed to have been a son of Thomas Meakin (No. 140) and 
Catherine, his wife. He was born in England about 1625, 
and probably came to New England with his parents in 
1633. Of his earlier years, nothing is known. It seems 
likely that he lived in Braintree or some town near Boston. 
Savage suggests that Mary Bidwell was his second wife, 
and as she was born about 1647, she could hardly have been 

the mother of his son, John, born in 1663. 
18 



138 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

John Meakin appears in a list of the freemen of Con- 
necticut in 1669, and in 1672 several parcels of land are 
recorded to him. One of two and one-half acres on the east 
side, he had " bought of Nicholas Disbroe," of whom he 
also bought 18 acres of land set off in the division of June 
12, 1666, He had also 16 acres of upland, and 36 acres 
which John Bid well, Sen., had given him. He owned other 
tracts later. [Hartford Distributions, p. 341.] 

As the location of his lands indicates John Meakin lived 
on the east side of the Connecticut River, in what is now 
East Hartford, and was a man of some prominence in the 
affairs of that section of the town. He was chosen Fence 
Viewer with Richard Risley for the " East side of y^ River," 
December 31, 1678, and again in 1684. In 1681, 1684, and 
1689, he was chosen Surveyor. His home lot was situated 
on Main street on the land where Joseph Merriman built 
his house afterwards and now owned by L. D. Forbes. The 
History of East Hartford, page 220, says, " On a slight 
eminence on Mr. Merriman's grounds and near the front 
of his mansion, stood an old house, amid old-fashioned shrub- 
bery, once the home of the prominent Meakins Family." 

In 1692, John Meakin and some of his children received 
small bequests by the will of Henry Hollsted, who calls him 
his " loving master." John Meakin died January 6, 1706, 
his inventory being taken on the 1st of April and amounting 
to £480 8s. Od. In his will, dated November 22, 1702, he 
mentions his wife to whom he left one-third of his estate, 
his sons John, Joseph, and Samuel, and daughters Mary 
Belden, Sarah Spencer, Rebecca and Hannah. [Hartford 
Probate Records, VII: 137.]

The name of the first wife of John Meakin is unknown. 
She was the mother of John Meakin, the eldest son, and 
died before 1669. He married, 2nd, about 1669, MARY 
BID WELL, daughter of John Bidwell (No. 142) and 
Sarah Wilcox (No. 143), who was bom in Hartford in 
1647. She outlived her husband and died May 15, 1Y25.

DANIEL BORDMAN, son of Samuel Boreman (No. 
144) and Mary Betts (No. 145), was born in Wethersfield, 
August 4, 1658. For a few years after his marriage in 
1683, Daniel Bordman occupied a portion of his father-in- 



140 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

law's home lot, situated on the west side of Rose Lane, 
(now Main street) in Wethersfield, a short distance below 

the church. In 1685, he obtained from his brother-in-law, 
Samuel Wright, Jr., twenty-five acres in the West Field, 
where, about this time, he built a dwelling house and after- 
ward lived. This lot fronted on the " Path to the Mill " 
(or Mud Lane, as it is now called), and extended back to 
Wolcott Hill. The ancient building standing on this land 
today, occupies, it is believed, nearly the original site of 
the Daniel Bordman homestead, and was probably erected 
by his son Timothy, between 1725 and 1750. It was sold 
to James Barret in 1768, and has since been known as the 
" Barret place," being now the property of Johnson, Robbins 
&Co. 

Daniel Bordman held several public offices in his town. 
He was elected Selectman, Collector, Surveyor, and member 
of the School Committee, and held the minor positions of 
Fence viewer. Sheep master, etc. In 1704, he, with several 
others, was appointed to fortify certain houses as forts. The 
family tradition is that he was a glazier by trade. He died 
February 20, 1724-5. The inventory of his estate amounted 
to £1,755 12s. Id. [Boardman Genealogy, pp. 198-204.]

Daniel Bordman married in Wethersfield, Conn., June 8, 
1683, HANNAH WRIGHT, daughter of Samuel Wright 
(No. 146) and Mary Butler (No. 147), who was born there 
in 1664. She received the following bequest in the will of 
her father : " To my daughter, Hannah, a parcel of Money

EDWARD CAMP, son of Edward Camp (No. 148) and 
Mary, his wife, was born in New Haven, Conn., July 8, 
1650. He settled in Milford, being doubtless brought up 
there after the marriage of his widowed mother to John 
Lane of Milford in 1662. 

About nine acres of land were granted to Edward Camp 
in one of the early allotments at " Wolfe Harbour " and 



142 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

this he exchanged in 1698 with Joseph Wheeler for another 
tract. [Milford Land Kecords, I: 143; II: 93, 95, 110.] 
He owned other lands later and in 1715 he deeded certain 
pieces to his sons, Samuel and John. [Ibid. V : 276 ; VI : 
24.] 

In 1702, Edward Camp was one of three chosen to 
decide a case between John Sloss and Joseph Kirby of New 
Haven [New Haven Land Records, II: 222,] and he ap- 
pears as one of the petitioners before the General Court in 
1709 in a case against John Read and others. {^Connecticut 
Colonial Records, V: 133.] At the latter period, he was 
one of the prominent men of Milford, representing that 
town in the General Court in May, 1712. He was then 
called '' Sergeant." Edward Camp. He also bore this title 
in 1705, when he was chosen with Captain Samuel Eells 
to represent the proprietors of New Milford in a committee 
appointed by the General Court " for the regulation of the 
said town," and is so called in the list of proprietors. It 
is thought that he derived this title from service in the 
Indian wars. His relations to New Milford were not of 
a permanent character, though he was one of the proprietors 
and engaged in their behalf in 1709 in the above suit to 
obtain satisfactory title to their lands. He never removed 
thither himself and disposed of his interest to his sons. 

Edward Camp's occupation was that of a farmer. In 
his will, he terms himself " yeoman." He and his wife 
were admitted to full communion in the Milford church, 
May 19, 1700. His will was dated March 11, 1721, he 
being then '' very sick." It mentions his wife, Elizabeth, 
sons Samuel and John, and daughters Abigail Galpin and 
Sarah Boardman. To the latter, he bequeathed £100, The 



SEVENTH GENERATION. I43 

value of his " house, barn, and home lot " was £140 and the 
total of his estate £394 3s. 4d. [Xew Haven Probate 
Records, V: 56, 57, 65.] Edward Camp died between the 
11th and 27th of March, 1721, his will being proved on the 
latter date. 

75. 

In the Records of Milford is the following entry : " Ed- 
ward Camp and MEHITABEL SMITH, daughter of John 
Smith Sen. of Milford were married on the 15th day of 
January 1673 by Major Treat." She was bom in Mil- 
ford, March 24, 1655, where her parents, John Smith (No. 
150) and Grace Hawley (jSTo. 151) were among the 
founders. She died before 1721, and Edward Camp mar- 
ried, 2nd, Elizabeth, who is mentioned in his will, dated 
March 11, 1721. On the 7th of March, Richard and Sarah 
Bordman of Wethersfield deeded all their right in the 
estate of their mother, Mehitabel Camp, late of Milford.

DANIEL SHERMAK, son of Jolm Slitenuan (No. 
152) and Mary, his wife (No. 153), was born in Milford, 
Conn., March 27, 1642. He was a master mariner, it is 
said, and resided in New Haven and owned real estate there. 
He is numbered among the freemen in 1669, and was a com- 
missioner and magistrate in 1674. At a meeting of the 
Council, May 24, 1676, he was appointed Ensign of the 
forces raised in New Haven county. In 1690 he was ap- 
pointed Lieutenant of the trainband, and Captain in 1700. 
He was a prominent man in New Haven ; a man of ability 
and wealth, and of large influence. 

In the will of Daniel Sherman, dated November 21, 
1716, he mentioned his six children, and his wife, Martha. 
To each of his daughters he left £5. To his wife, he left 
all that she brought him of movable estate at her marriage 
and one-third part of his movable estate. [New Haven Pro- 
bate Records, IV: 443-446.] Captain Daniel Shennan 
died November 30 ( ?), 1716. His gravestone was removed 
from New Haven Green in 1821 to the Grove street ceme- 
tery. His epitaph is as follows: Here Lies y* Bo(dy | Of

(No. 154) and his first wife, who was bom probably in 
Taunton, Mass., about 1642. The name of Captain Sher- 
man's 2nd wife was Martha, who died in 1728, administra- 
tion being issued to Captain John Munson on her estate,

SAMUEL BURWELL, son of John Burwell (No. 156), 
was bom in Milford, Conn., in 1660. By the death of his 
father in 1665, he was left with other children to the care 
of relatives. He probably had land granted him by the town 
soon after he became of age, but April 15, 1685, he bought 
a tract from Isaac Beecher on Oyster River, in the western 
section of New Haven, where he lived the remainder of his 
life, [New Haven Land Records, I: 270.] He was a 
prominent man in that locality. In 1706 he was appointed 
Ensign of the West Haven trainband and usually bore that 
title, on which account, as well as other reasons, he has 
been frequently confounded with his uncle, Lieutenant Sam- 
uel Burwell of Milford. 

Ensign Samuel Burwell died December 30, 1719. His 

epitaph in the old Burial Ground in West Haven, Conn., is 
19 



146 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

as follows: Here Lyeth ye | Body of Ensine | Samuel Bur- 
well I Who Died Decern' | 30 1719 | Aged 59 years. Adminis- 
tratiou was granted on his estate to his widow, Rebecca Bur- 
well, and son, Stephen, and his inventory, amounting to 
£639 3s. 7d., was taken July 1, 1720. In this was included 
his house, bam, and three acres of land being his home- 
lot, and various tracts of land elsewhere, also " 2 piftols, a 
symater and other trooping tackling " valued at £5 10s. 
It appeared in the settlement of the estate by the testimony 
of his daughters, Dinah and Batlisheba, that Samuel Bur- 
well '" called his family together 48 hours before his death 
and told them he freely gave his son, Stephen, the land lately 
bought of the town." Stephen Burwell was appointed 
g-uardian of Nathan, a minor, and also of John " by reason 
of his infirmity." The widow, Rebecca, was appointed 
guardian of Gideon and Mary, minors. To the daughter, 
Anne, there had been advanced £28 0. 2d. and to Rebecca 
£38 19s. Od., probably at the time of marriage. The widow 
received one-third and two-thirds were divided into eleven 
parts, of which the eldest son received two and each of the 
others one. [New Haven Probate Records, V: 28, 41, 47, 
66, 203.] Several deeds were passed between the heirs in 
the settlement of tlie estate, from which it appears that the 
widow continued her residence in the West Parish of New 
Haven.

at Milford, and is as follows : ^' Sam" Burwell of Milford

Conn., October 14, 1654. He lived in his native town, being 
engaged in farming, and died there in 1689. The inventory 
of his estate was taken August 22, 1689, and amounted to 
£482 Is. 2d. In it, his " gun & sword & ammunition " are 
valued at £2 13s. 6d., and it shows that he then owned " half 
the old house & homestead that were his fathers," valued at 
£60. [Thomas Canfield and Matthew Camfield with fneir

Thomas Canfield married, February 26, 1679, RE- 
BECCA ADKINSOIsT. Of her family nothing is definitely 
known. It is thought she may have been a daughter of Luke 
Adkinson (Atkinson, Atkeson, Attconson), who was an early 
settler in 'New Haven, having a family of four persons in 
1643. Luke Adkinson married, 2nd, May 1, 1651, Mary, 
daughter of Richard Piatt of Milford, and had children, 
Mary, Hannah, and Sarah, born at New Haven. He re- 
moved in 1656 possibly to Middletown, where his widow 
married, January 3, 1666-7, Thomas Whitmore and died 
June 1, 1669. Rebecca Adkinson could well have been his 
daughter and one of the family of four in 1643. 

After the death of Mr. Canfield, his widow, Rebecca, 
married, April 28, 1695, Samuel Camp, Senior, of Milford, 
son of Edward Camp 1st of New Haven, by whom also she 
had children. She died in Milford, March 28, 1710.

SAMUEL CAMP of Milford, Conn., who bore succes- 
sively the titles " Senior," " Lieutenant," and " Deacon," 
was born in New Haven about 1648, and was the son of 
Edward Camp, 1st (No. 164), and Mary, his wife. 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 149 

The Camp families of Milford present so many and such 
perplexing genealogical problems that it is necessary, in 
order to distinguish the above Samuel Camp, to review the 
entire matter and give the evidence for the positions here 
taken. 

The emigrant ancestor of one Camp family was Nicholas 
Camp, 1st, who, says Hinman, " came first to Wethersfield," 
but appears in the list of free planters of Milford, November 
20, 1639. In 1646 he was in possession of a homelot of 
six acres, one rood and twenty poles, located between those 
of Roger Tyrrell and John Fowler. He also shared in the 
later divisions of land and bought several tracts. 

It has been claimed that " He was the son of John 
Campe, called the elder, of Nasing, Essex County, England, 
and Mary, his wife. The date of John's marriage appears 
on the parish records as having taken place in August, 1573. 
Nicholas, Sr., was born at Nasing in the month of April, 
1597. His baptism is recorded the same month." [Boston 
Evening Transcript, Eebruary 12, 1906.] This statement 
may well be true, though we have made no investigation of 
the matter. In the will of Bennett Elliott of Nasing, dated 
November 5, 1621, proved March 28, 1622, a "Nicholas 
Campe the younger " is mentioned, and possibly the same 
who is named in the will of John Campe, the elder, of 
Nasing, dated May 21, 1630, proved June 11, 1630, as his 
son, having brothers, George and Thomas, sisters, Mary and 
Sarah, and grandchildren, Elizabeth and John Campe. In 
the same will we meet with the name of William Campe, 
nominated as one of the overseers. [Genealogical Gleanings 
in England, II: 904-907.] Some writers have stated that 
William Camp of Milford and Edward Camp, 1st, of New 



150 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

Haven, as well as ISTicholas Camp, 2nd, of Milford, were sons 
of this emigrant ancestor. We know of no evidence in proof 
of this claim. Edward Camp, 1st, was born in England about 
1622, and first appears in ISTew Haven in 1643. It seems 
more likely that William Camp was a son of the emigrant, if 
either, though it is quite probable that both were of the I^Tasing 
family if Nicholas, 1st, was the son of John Campe of 
ISI'asing. Neither William nor Edward appear to have in- 
herited property from Nicholas Camp, 1st, of Milford, al- 
though William was living in Milford at the time when the 
emigrant is supposed to have died. 

In 1645 the first name of the wife of Nicholas Camp, 1st, 
was Sarah. She is assumed to have been his first wife. 
Her family name is unknown. She was doubtless the 
mother of the child " Sarah Camp dan. of Nicholas Camp," 
baptized March 19, 1643, in her father's right, as " Sarah 
wife of bro. Camp " did not become a member of the church 
until August 4, 1644. Some genealogists assert also that 
in addition to the son, William, there were older daughters 
of Nicholas, 1st, Abigail, the wife of Nathan Baldwin, who 
died March 22, 1647, and Mary, the wife of John Baldwin. 
Opposite the above entry is the following note : " She died in 
childbed Sept. 6, 1645, being the last day of the week in the 
morning and was buried in the evening in my garden having 
been well delivered of two sons upon the second day of same 
month and very well as could be expected till the second day 
in the night, when she began to be very ill having taken cold 
in the morning before." In the church record of baptisms 
is the entry: " 1645 Sept. Samuel and John sons of Brot^. 
Camp twins." A copy of these records made by E. R. Lam- 
bert gives this appended note from the original : " Samuel 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 151 

died at nurse at Sister Fenn's in the night suddenly." An- 
other version has it: " They died at nurse at Sister Fenn's 
Nov. 22 in the night 1G45, suddenly." In any case Samuel 
Camp, the son of Nicholas, 1st, born September 2, 1645, 
died young. There is no record of the birth of another 
Samuel in this family and we have found no evidence what- 
soever in the Milford records that a son of that name grew to 
maturity. 

In the following year, 1646, Nicholas Camp, 1st, mar- 
ried Eady (Edith) Tilley of Windsor, the widow of that 
John Tilley, master of a bark, who was cruelly maimed by 
the Indians on the Connecticut River, near Saybrook^ in Octo- 
ber, 1636, and died three days later. He had a homelot 
assigned to him in Windsor, which Thomas Dewey " lawful 
att'y to Nich. Camp of M. and his wife Eady, formerly 
Eady Tilley " sold in 1646. [Winthrop's History of New 
England, 1853, p. 238; Stiles's History of Windsor, I: 67, 
167.] By this wife Nicholas Camp, 1st, had a daughter, 
Abigail, baptized in Milford, August 29, 1647. 

In the town records of New Haven is the following entry : 
" Nicolas Campe of Milford and Kattern Tompson of New 
Haven widdow were married by the Governer the 14th of 
July 1652." This has been supposed by some to be the 
record of the first marriage of Nicholas Camp, 2nd, of Mil- 
ford, son of the emigrant, who was born in 1630. It doubt- 
less corresponds nearly with the date of his marriage; but 
his wife in 1681 is proven to have been a sister of Jeremiah 
Beard, deceased. Anthony Tompson died May 23, 1647, 
having then a son Anthony who took the oath of fidelity 
May 2, 1654, and died the same year on the 26th of Decem- 
ber. He married his second wife, Kattern (Katherine), in 



15? BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

1644, and by her had tliree children. Therefore, unless she 
was very much younger than her husband, Anthony Tomp- 
son, and very much older than Nicholas Camp, 2nd, the above 
record must be that of the third marriage of Nicholas Camp, 
1st, the emigrant, a conclusion supported by other circum- 
stances. 

The death of Nicholas Camp, 1st, is believed to have oc- 
curred not long before 1658, when a " Widow Camp " of 
New Haven gave to her daughter, Bridget Tompson, a por- 
tion due her from the estate of her fatlier, Anthony Tomp- 
son. Only one of that name is found in the list of freemen 
in 1669, who was tlie son. The practice in the Milford 
records had been to distinguish tliem by tlie titles " Senior " 
and " Junior," but the return made by the searchers for 
Whalley and Goffe, May 20, 1661, has the signature of 
" Nicholas Campe " without any such title [New Haven 
Colonial Records, II: 389n.] The same is true of a deed 
to Nicholas Campe and John Beard, September 16, 1664, 
and in this case the son, who was at other times associated 
with his brother-in-law in land transactions, was undoubtedly 
the person named. [Milford Land Records, IV: 294; cf. 
IV: 329.] 

The only male representative of this family in the second 
generation, as far as proven by the records we have seen, was 
Nicholas Camp, 2nd. It is recorded that " Nicholas Camp, 
Jun'. hath given him by his father Nicholas Camp, Sen^ 
one House Lott containing by estimation, one Acre & halfe 
& twenty Poles be it more or less, bounded with a highway 
west, with Nicholas Camp Sen"", to the north, with other 
Letts East, and with Joseph Baldwin South." [Milford 
Land Records, 1 : 104.] There is also tlie following record: 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 153 

"Nicholas Camp Senior ( ?) now Jim"". ( ?) being Given by 
his Father hath given him by the Town one parcell of Med- 
dow Containing one acre and a half," [Ibid. I: 167.] It 
is impossible to determine the exact dates of these gifts, the 
records being without date, but it is conjectured that the 
former was about the time of his marriage, and the latter 
after his father's death, or that the record was made at that 
time. 

The Milford church records have this entry in its list of 
members: "1662, May 11, The wife of Nicholas Camp 
added, — who died Aug^'. 1689." This was the wife of 
Nicholas Camp, 2nd, as the baptisms of " Samuel, Joseph, 
Maria, children of Sister Camp," May 18, 1662, and of 
" John and Sarah twins of Sister ("amp," September 14, 
1662, indicata Nicholas Camp, her husband, united July 
10, 1670. In 1664, as above proven, Nicholas Camp, 2nd, 
and John Beard were associated either in business or in the 
settlement of an estate in which both were interested. 
" Widow Martha Beard " was one of the first settlers, and 
it is supposed that her husband died on the voyage to New 
England. She united with the church as " Martha Beard, 
widow " November 1, 1640, and died in Milford June 11, 
1647-8, She had, says Lambert, three sons and three 
daughters. The sons were James, who died in 1642, Jere- 
miah, and John, and one of the daughters, Martha, married 
Ensign Jolui Stream. Jeremiah, who was unmarried and 
living with his brother. Captain John Beard, at the time, 
died intestate in 1681, his inventory, which amounted to 
£209 16s, 7d., being taken on the 27th of October. In its 
distribution the heirs were Captain John Beard, and Nicho- 
las Camp and Ensign John Stream, " husbands of sisters " 
20

of Jeremiah. [New Haven Probate Records, I: 2, 81.] 
Thus it appears that Sarah Beard, supposed by some to have 
been the first wife of Nicholas Camp, 1st, was really the first 
wife of his son, Nicholas, and doubtless the mother of his 
children. Her brother. Captain John Beard, died in Sep- 
tember, 1690, leaving an estate amounting to £1180 5s. lOd. 
One of his daughters by Anna, his first wife, who died in 
1698, was Mary Beard, the wife of Timothy Baldwin, and 
mother of Mary Baldwin, who married Samuel Camp 
"mason," the son of Lieutenant Samuel Camp, and grand- 
son of Edward Camp, 1st. [Ibid. II: 86; III: 198, 199.] 

The second wife of Nicholas Camp, 2nd, was Mehitabel 
Briscoe, a widow. He died in Milford, June 10, 1706, ac- 
cording to his gTavestone, in his 77th year. In his will, 
dated December 31, 1705, he mentions his wife, Mehitabel, 
and his children. [New Haven Probate Records, III: 92.] 
These were as follows: Joseph, born August 11, 1653, died 
August 16, 1655 ; Samuel, bom September 15, 1655 ; 
Joseph, born December 15, 1657, married Hannah, daughter 
of Eleazer Rogers, and died May 20, 1750, in Milford ; his 
wife died January 9, 1739-40 ; Mary, born July 12, 1660, 
married January 27, 1678, Joseph Peck; John, bom Sep- 
tember 14, 1662, married Mary Northrop, and died August 
2, 1731, in Milford; Sarah, bom September 14, 1662, twin, 
married Daniel Baldwin; Nathan, baptized June 25, 1665, 
died March 26, 1666; Abigail, bom March 28, 1667, mar- 
ried Robert Treat of Milford. 

In the third generation of this family it is only necessary 
to follow Samuel Camp, born in 1655. In the Milford 
records tliere is an account of the property received by Sam- 
uel Camp " for his portion from his father Nicholas Camp," 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 155 

with the son's receipt for the same. The total amount was 
£224, in which were included a house and home lot, a horse, 
cattle and provisions, and "the meadow that was Jer. 
Beard's." The date is April 18, 1682. [Milford Land 
Eecords, II: 1.] The inference is that the son was about 
to set up housekeeping. Some claim that he had married, 
November 13, 1672, Hannah Betts of Norwalk, who was 
buried January 24, 1680 ; but he was, in 1672, only a little 
over seventeen years of age. Moreover he had been baptized 
May 18, 1662, as above noted, whereas the Samuel Camp 
who married Hannah Betts was baptized September 7, 1673, 
when he and his wife united with the church, a fact that is 
twice recorded. It is not supposable that the fathers did 
such a thing. The same fact disposes of the claim that 
Samuel Camp, the twin son of Nicholas, 1st, baptized in 
September, 1645, grew to maturity and was the husband of 
Hannah Betts. 

The marriages of two men by the name of Samuel Camp 
are recorded in Milford — one to Mercy Scovill (Scofield), 
January 6, 1681-2, the other to Mary Camp, October 4, 
1682. The former, we think, was the first marriage of the 
above Samuel Camp, son of Nicholas, 2nd, and the latter the 
second marriage of Lieutenant Samuel Camp, the son of Ed- 
ward, 1st, the subject of this sketch. There were at this 
time in Milford only these two of that name of marriageable 
age. 

Mercy Scofield was the daughter of Daniel Scofield of 
Stamford, and was bora the " latter end of Nov. 1657." 
Her mother, widow Sarah Scofield, became the third wife 
of Miles Merwin of Milford and died March 5, 1698. 
Miles Merwin in his will, dated May 18, 1695, made a be- 



156 



BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 



quest to " Mary Camp, wife of Sam" Camp of Milford," 
and she was apparently living when the inventory Avas taken 
May 12, 1697. Her name is given both as " Mercy " and 
" Mary," a common interchange. The second wife of Sam- 
nel Camp, son of Edward, 1st, is believed to have died about 
1692, and certainly before 1695, for it is proven, as else- 
where stated, that he was the Samuel Camp who married 
as his third wife, April 28, 1695, widow Rebecca Canfield. 
Therefore, his second wife could not have been living May 
18, 1695, when Miles Merwin made the bequest to Mercy, 
the daughter of his wife, and it is proven that the wife of 
Samuel Camp, son of Nicholas, 2nd, was living. Moreover, 
" Samuel Camp of Milford " was the designation of the son 
of Nicholas, 2nd, at the time, the other Samuel being called 
" Senior," or, as in the record of his marriage to Rebecca 
Canfield, " Lieu. Samuel Camp, mason." The recurrence 
of the names of Mercy Scofield's relatives, such as Ebenezer, 
in the family of Samuel Camp, son of Nicholas, 2nd, should 
also be noted. We conclude, therefore, that this Samuel 
Camp, who united with the Milford church. May 22, 1681, 
married Mercy Scofield January 6, 1681-82, and in the fol- 
lowing spring received an adequate portion from his father 
to support a family. His first wife died, however, about 
1698, and he married soon afterward Martha Uffoot (Uf- 
ford), the daughter of John Uffoot of Milford, and widow 
of Peter Carr. [Durham Land Records, I: 111.] She was 
" Martha Camp " in 1699, when the estate of Elizabeth Uf- 
foot was distributed among her brothers and sisters, John, 
Samuel, Mary Picket, and Lydia Uffoot, with herself. 
[New Haven County Court Records, IT: 22.] By her 
first husband she had a daughter, Sarah Carr, who married 
January 21, 1713-14, Caleb Seward, Jr. 



SEVENTH GENERATION, 157 

Samuel Camp, son of jSTicholas, 2nd, removed about 1708 
to Durham, Conn., and died there April 4, 1733, " in the 
79tli year of his age." His wife, Martha, died February 
14, 1739, " aged 70 years." In his ^vill dated January 20, 
1729-30, he mentioned his wife and children, Amos, John, 
Ebenezer, Samuel, Bethiah Wright, and Sarah Seward. 
[Guilford Probate Eecords, Til: 68.] His children were as 
follows: Samuel, baptized January 14, 1683-4; Bethiah, 
bom April 12, 1686, who married James Wright; Nathan, 
bom August, 1688, died August 16, 1690; Ebenezer, born 
August 24, 1690, died January 22, 1734; Amos, bora Feb- 
ruary 12, 1691-2, married December 18, 1716, Anna An- 
drews, and lived in Wallingford ; Sarah, born I^ovember 
5, 1694, married, March 31, 1710, Thomas Seward; John, 
born March 1, 1700, married June 27, 1728, Hannah 
Hickox, and died in Durham, September 20, 1754; his wife 
died June 21, 1789, " in her 85th year " ; Ephraim, born 
September 17, 1702, died February 11, 1725, in Durham. 

The Samuel Camp of this family in the fourth genera- 
tion, born in 1683, lived in Milford. In a deed to his 
" honored father Samuel Camp of Durham " Jime 18, 1717, 
he calls himself " Samuel Camp the fourth of Milford," 
which agrees with the account here given. [Durham Land 
Records, III: 195.] He married, February 1, 1704, Lydia 
Uffoot, perhaps the younger sister of his step-mother. 

This review of the early generations in the family of 
Nicholas Camp, the emigrant, enables us to distinguish be- 
tween Samuel Camp, son of Nicholas, 2nd, born in 1655, and 
Samuel Camp, son of Edward, 1st, born about 1648, who is 
the subject of this sketch. The latter was about eleven years 
old when his father died, and fourteen when his mother, 



158 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

Mary Camp, married John Lane, as his second wife, and 
removed to Milford. The bequests of John Lane to his 
wife's children indicate that the new home was not an un- 
pleasant one. This step-father died in 1669, giving his 
widow the life use of his homestead farm. Samuel Camp 
was then about twenty-one years of age. 

No exact date can be assigned to his first grant of land 
in Milford, but he was doubtless the Samuel Camp who re- 
ceived twelve acres at " Ferry Corner," and a homelot of 
two acres next east of Josiah Tibbals, of whom as " Samuel 
Camp Sen""" he bought land in 1694. [Milford Land 
Kecords, I: 89, 153; III: 68, 125, 137.] On December 
13, 1692, he bought of Joseph Guernsey " a certain house, 
barn and houselot " of about three roods in Milford, the 
deed being indexed at the time as that of " Samuel Camp 
Sen""." [Ibid. Ill: 99.] This was probably his home 
thereafter. 

He was a mason by trade, as his son, Samuel, born in 
1675, was, and in several instances he was called " mason " 
before he assumed his military title; but it was his son 
who came to be known in Milford as " Samuel Camp mason " 
to distinguish him from others of the name. The father 
became " Sergeant " of the second company trainband, cer- 
tainly in 1697 and perhaps earlier, and apparently served 
as " Lieutenant " before he was officially appointed by the 
General Court, in October, 1698. In the record of his mar- 
riage in 1695 he bears that title, though the record may have 
been made some time afterward, when the births of his chil- 
dren were recorded. About 1709, he was also chosen Dea- 
con of the church, and in a deed of December 5, 1710, that 
was indexed at the time as that of " Lieutenant Camp," he 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 159 

is called " Samuel Camp Deacon." This title sufficed to 
distinguish him in the later years of his life. He is posi- 
tively identified in 1691 as an overseer of the estate of Na- 
thaniel Briscoe, husband of Mary Camp, daughter of Ed- 
ward, 1st, as " Samuel Camp Sen'' her brother." He ap- 
peared later in that capacity. [Milford Land Records, II : 
136; New Haven County Court Records, I: 190.] 

Samuel Camp was one of the proprietors of New Milford 
in 1706, and in the list is named " Lieutenant Camp," his 
son Samuel being called " Mason." He did not, however, 
remove tliither, but died in Milford about 171Y. In 1715 
he deeded land to his son Enos of Milford, and appears to 
have been living June 18, 1717, when " Samuel Camp the 
fourth of Milford " deeded land to his " honored father 
Samuel Camp of Durham." All that remained of his 
gravestone in 1889, bore the inscription : " Here lyes buried 

the body of Deacon Samuel Camp died ." [Pond's 

" Inscriptions on Tombstones in Milford," — New Haven 
Historical Society Papers, Vol. 5.] 

Samuel Camp, son of Lieutenant Samuel and grandson 
of Edward 1st, was bom in Milford, May 20, 1675, being 
the son of Samuel Camp's first wife Hannah Betts. As 
stated above he was by trade a mason and became known by 
that title. In a deed marked in the margin as that of 
" Samuel Camp, mason," it is stated that he was the son 
of Lieutenant Samuel Camp. As therefore it is known that 
he was the Samuel bom in 1675, it must have been Lieuten- 
ant Samuel who married Hannah Betts. In another deed, 
with tlie same marking, Natlianiel Farrand and Anna, his 
wife, deed to their " brother " Samuel Camp. [Milford 
Land Records, IV: 117, 307, 308.] The heirs of Timothy 



lecft BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

Baldwin in 1704 were Mary Camp, Billing Baldwin, and 
Anna Baldwin, who that year married Nathaniel Farrand. 
[New Haven County Court Records, I: 144, 165, 532, 
533.] Moreover James Beard, son of Captain John Beard 
whose daughter Mary was tlie wife of Timothy Baldwin, 
in his will, dated February 14, 1709-10, says, " I give unto 
my cousins Mary Camp and Anna Farrand and Billing 
Baldwin, children of my sister Mary," twenty shillings. 
[New Haven Probate Records, III: 198, 199.] Samuel 
Camp, '' mason," married Mary Baldwin about 1700. His 
gravestone in Milf ord has the following epitaph : " Mr. 
Samuel Camp Sen"" died March ye 13tli, 1743-4, in ye 69th 
year of his age." His wife Mary Baldwin Camp died 
October 29, 1733. In her will, proved December 3, 1733, 
she names her husband Samuel Camp, her eldest son 
Jonathan, sons Samuel and Gideon, a daughter Mary the 
wife of John Camp and a daughter Hannah the wife of Heth 
Peck. The fact is stated, however, that she had four daugh- 
ters. [New Haven Probate Records, VI: 121.] In his 
will, dated June 9, 1743, and proved April 9, 1744, he men- 
tions his " present wife," with whom a jointure had been 
made, sons Jonathan, Samuel and Gideon and daughters, 
Mary, Hannah, Abigail, and Sarah. [Ibid. VI: 548.] This 
family was as follows: Timothy, born April 1, 1701, died 
before 1733 ; Jonathan, bom December 17, 1702 ; Samuel, 
born November 17, 1704, died in Milford, February 17, 
1773 in his 68th year; Mary, born January 4, 1706, married 
John Camp; Hannah who married Heth Peck; Abigail, 
Sarah, and Gideon. 

An exhaustive search of the Milford records shows tliat 
the apparent confusion as to the identity of the various per- 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 161 

sons named Samuel Camp is due largely to the transfer of 
tlie titles " Senior " and " Junior." Still there was no con- 
fusion in the mind of the clerk who used them. From about 
1670 to 1676 there was only one of the name who was of age 
and no distinguishing title was necessary — he being called 
simply " Samuel Camp " — the subject of this sketch. 
Later, however, Samuel, son of Nicholas, 2nd, appears, born 
in 1655, who was called at first " Samuel Camp," but from 
1685 to 1694 was called " Samuel Camp Jun'," the elder 
being " Samuel Camp Sen^" Then as the latter assumed 
the military title " Sergeant," and later " Lieutenant," the 
former was known as simply " Samuel Camp " or " Samuel 
Camp Sen""," to distinguish him from Samuel, the son of 
Lieutenant Samuel, who was called " Junior." The latter 
was in his turn displaced by the appearance of Samuel, the 
son of Samuel and grandson of Nicholas, 2nd, born in 1683, 
who became " Junior " or " Samuel Camp the fourth," and 
the title " mason " was given to the former instead of 
" Junior." This procession continued to the great annoy- 
ance of modern genealogists, for some years, for Edward 2nd, 
son of Edward 1st, had a son Samuel, born about 1690, and 
Samuel, son of Samuel and grandson of Edward, 1st, had a 
son Samuel, bom in 1704, and there were others later. 

83. 

The Milford records have the following entry : " Samuel 
Camp of Milford and Hannah Betts of ISTorwalk were 
married tliirteentli November one thousand six hundred 
seventy-two, by Mr. Olmstead, Commissioner at Norwalk." 
This could have been none other than the first marriage of 
Samuel Camp the son of Edward, 1st. The evidence may be

summarized as follows: (1) This Samuel Camp was the 
only one of marriageable age in Milford, having been born 
about 1648. (2) The church records have the entry: 
" 1673 Sept. 7. Samuel Camp and his wife admitted and 
he bapt^ on the same day. She buried Jan^ 24, 80." His 
baptism is also recorded in the church list. If we suppose 
that Samuel, the son of Nicholas, 1st, grew to maturity, he 
was baptized in September, 1645, and Samuel, the son of 
Nicholas, 2nd, was baptized May 18, 1662, and both are 
recorded. The fathers were particular not to baptize the 
same person twice. (3) Samuel Camp, the son of Samuel 
Camp and Hannah Betts, born May 23, 1675, is positively 
identified as the one called " mason," who died March 13, 
1743-4 " in his 69tli year," and the Milford deeds state that 
he was the son of " Lieutenant " Samuel, who must there- 
fore have married Hannah Betts. (4) The death of Hannah 
Betts Camp, the month before Mary Camp Lane, the mother 
of Lieutenant Samuel, accounts for the absence of her name 
in the \vill of Mrs. Lane, dated February 22, 1680, when all 
the others of that family were remembered. 

The Milford records give no further information concern- 
ing the ancestry of Hannah Betts than her residence; but 
she was tlie daughter of Thomas Betts of Norwalk, and was 
bom at Guilford, November 12, 1652. Her father outlived 
her, dying in 1688, which accoimts for the fact that she was 
not named in his will. 

We have also in the Milford town records this marriage : 
" Samuel Camp & Mary Camp were married the tentli day 
of Ocf 1682 by Major Treat." As elsewhere proven Samuel 
Camp, the son of Edward 1st, could not have married Mercy 
Scofield as some have claimed, and he alone could have been

the person above named. This is negative evidence it is ad- 
mitted, but considering all the circumstances it has great 
weight. It is assumed that the form of the record, according 
to the manner of such entries in Milford, means that the 
maiden name of this wife was MARY CAMP, and she was 
doubtless the daughter of William Camp (ISTo. 166) and 
Mary Smith (No. 167), and was born in Milford, March 22, 
1663-4. She died not long after 1691. 

The above Samuel Camp is certainly the one referred to 
in the following records: "Lieu. Samuel Camp, mason, & 
Rebecca Canfield were married April 28, 1695 by Robert 
Treat Deputy Governor." She was Rebecca Adkinson, 
the vndow of Thomas Canfield, 2nd, who had died in 1689, 
and of whose estate " Samuel Camp Sen"" " at that time so- 
called, was one of the overseers. In a case before the New 
Haven County Court, March 25, 1703, " Lieu* Samuel 
Camp, husband to Thomas Canfield, Senior's, widow " ap- 
peared in behalf of said widow and her children. Thus it 
happened that Thomas Canfield, 3rd, the son of Rebecca and 
Mary the daughter of Lieutenant Samuel Camp, who were 
afterwards married, were associated in the same household 
in Milford. It is recorded tliat " Rebecca Camp, wife of 
Deacon Camp " died in Milford, March 28, 1710-11.

JOHN MOSS, son of John Moss (No. 168), was bom 
in New Haven, Conn., October 12, 1650. He came to Wall- 
ingford as one of the original settlers with his father in 1670, 
and received land in the early allotments. He was accepted 
as a planter and a home-lot was assigned to him December 
5, 1683. Later he held other lands, and in 1714 deeded 
tracts to his sons, Samuel and Isaac. 

John Moss died in Wallingford March 31, 1717, and 
administration on his estate was granted to his wife, Martha 
and son, Samuel, June 18, 1717. His inventory amounted 
to £500 12s. 7d. and the following children are mentioned in 
the distribution: Samuel, John, Solomon, Isaac, Esther 
Maltbie, Martha Stent and Mary Munson. [New Haven

SAMUEL HALL, son of John Hall (No. 172) and 
Jeanne Wollen (No. 173), was born in New Haven, Conn., 
and baptized there May 21, 1646. In 1670, he removed 
to Wallingford and became one of the founders of that 
town, with his father, John Hall, and his brothers, John 
and Thomas. Here he shared in all the experiences of a 
new settlement, receiving his proportion of the various 
divisions of land. He drew one of the home-lots that were 
laid out in 1689 and probably lived there. " He owned 
much land in the vicinity of Meriden, several hundred 
acres over in Cheshire and considerable tracts in New 
Haven. He had bought Thomas Judd's 'propriety' in 
Waterbury. He had erected a mill in Wallingford where 
he sawed lumber and manufactured the wooden dishes which 
in those days adorned the settlers' tables." 

In King Philip's war, Samuel Hall is numbered among 
the garrison at Punkapauge, and he became in 1696, Lieuten- 
ant of the trainband, being made Captain in 1704. He was 
also chosen one of the Deacons of the church in 1716, the 



166 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

record being that " Capt. Hall, Sr., shall sit in the deacon's 
seat, and Capt. Hall, Jr., in the first pne." He was also 
Deputy to the General Court in 1698 and at several sessions 
later. It is evident that he was one of the most prominent 
and highly honored men in the to"svn. 

Samuel Hall died in Wallingford, March 5, 1725, aged 
77, and is buried in the Wallingford cemetery. After dili- 
gent search, no record has been found of the disposition of 
his estate. Much of his land was disposed of before his 
death. 

87. 

The wife of Samuel Hall was HANNAH WALKEE, 
daughter of John Walker (No. 174) and Grace, his wife, 
who was born probably in New Haven, September 26, 1646, 
married in May, 1668, and died in Wallingford, December 
20j 1728. She also is buried in the Wallingford cemetery.

THOMAS HARRISON was one of the early settlers in 
New Haven. His name does not appear in the census of 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 167 

1641-43. On August 5, 1644, Richard Harrison, Sen., 
assented to the oath of fidelity, and the same year Richard 
Harrison, Jr. Thomas Harrison gave his assent April 4, 
1654, having then been a resident some years. It is all but 
proven that Richard, Sen., was the father of Richard, Jr., 
and Thomas, who were brothers, as John Harrison of Bran- 
ford, bachelor, son of Richard, Jr., who removed to Newark, 
N. J., in May, 1666, mentions in his will his father, Richard, 
and his uncle, Thomas. If this Richard was the witness in the 
following document and brother of the Elizabeth mentioned, 
as is altogether probable, Thomas was the son of Richard 
Harrison, Sen. ; he had a sister, Elizabeth Lyne, and the 
family came to New Haven from West Kerby, Cheshire, 
England: " 1668 June 18. Certificate that Hopestill Lyne, 
6 to 7 year old, daughter of Henry Lyne of New Haven in 
New England, son of John Lyne of Badby, Northampton- 
shire, which Henry died Jan. 14, 1662, and had the child 
Hopestill by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Har- 
rison of West Kerby, Cheshire, is still alive is sworn to by 
Richard Harrison, W" Meaker and Ellen Johnson." [New 
Jersey Archives, XXI: 29.] 

Thomas Harrison removed to Branford in 1667 with his 
father-in-law, Eleazer Stent, and was one of the principal 
men in the early history of that town. He acquired several 
tracts of land, especially in the northern section, now North 
Branford. In 1677 and 1678 he was Deputy from the town 
to the General Court. 

Thomas Harrison died in 1703 or 1704, his will being 
dated October 20, 1703, and the inventory of his estate being 
taken January 5, 1704. It amounted to £919 17s. 6d., and in- 
cluded several tracts of land. In his will he mentioned his

Thomas Harrison married, 1st, at 'New Haven in 1656, 
Ellen, the widow of John Thompson, Sen., whose estate was 
inventoried Feb, 5, 1655-56. She was doubtless the second 
wife of Mr. Thompson, who had at his death several children 
grown to maturity. Her death occurred about 1665, and 
Thomas and Nathaniel, who are called in the will of Thomas 
Harrison his " eldest sons," were her children. He married, 
2nd, in New Haven, March 29, 1666, ELIZABETH 
STENT, daughter of Eleazer Stent (No. 178), who died 
before 1704.

Conn. He settled later in East Haven, purchasing of Will- 
iam Andrews, in 1663, land in Southend Neck, on the shore 
of Long Island sound, and became one of the largest land- 
owners in that town. He died there May 8, 1719, at the age 
of 78.

ABRAHAM WATERHOUSE, son of Abraham Water- 
house (No. 184) and Rebecca Clark (No. 185), was born 
in Saybrook, Conn., December 23, 1674. He was an exten- 
sive land-owner in Saybrook, and early acquired land in the 
Pattecunk section of the town, later set off as Chester. 

Abraham Waterhouse died in Saybrook in June, 1750, 
aged 76 years. His will, dated May 12, 1741, was exhibited 
by his son, John, June 28, 1750, and the inventory of his 
estate, taken July 2nd, amounted to £728 Os. lOd. [Guilford 
Probate Records, IV: 591, 634-636.] He was distinguished 
as " Junior " until he was about forty-five years of age, and 
was also called " Sergeant." He may have been the person 
called " Captain " in several instances, though that title was 
more commonly applied to his son, Abraham.

Abraham Waterhouse married, November 12, 1697, as 
his first wife, HANNAH STAEKIE, who was the mother 
of his children. She died about 1725, and he married, 2nd, 
in 1727 or later, Abigail Filer, daughter of Zerubabel Filer 
and Experience Strong, who was born August 8, 1683. She 
was a member of the Saybrook church November 17, 1736. 
Her first husband had been Jonathan Deming of Wethers- 
field, born November 27, 1661, married January 5, 1708-9, 
and soon after the death of Mr. Waterhouse she removed to 
that town where she died December 24, 1754. Her estate 
was divided among the heirs of her first husband. [Hartford 
Probate Eecords, XVII : 114 ; Talcott's Notes on New York 
and New England Families, p. 503.] She had two years 
before, as " Mrs. Abigail Waterous late of Saybrook but now

and in consideration of money paid to her by Abraham, John, 
and Gideon Waterous, given up all her rights in the estate of

with his uncle, Jonah Wolcott of Salem, Mass., but on the 
death of his father he returned to live in Wethersfield. He 
lived on the west side of Main street, where the Webb man- 
sion, famous as the headquarters of General Washington, 
now stands. 

Captain Wolcott was one of the leading merchants of 
Wethersfield, and one of the most active of its men in public 
affairs, holding nearly all the town offices. In October, 1705, 
he was made Captain of the Hartford County dragoons, and 
in May, 1725, received his commission as Captain of the 
Second Company or trainband in Wethersfield. 

He died in 1734, and his gravestone in the Wethersfield 
cemetery has the following inscription: Here lyes Buried 
I the Body of | Capt. Samuel Wolcott, | Who died Sep'tr ye IS*'* 

1734, in I the 58**^ year of his Age. His estate was inven- 
toried November 18, 1734, and amounted to £5097 2s. lOd. 
In his will, dated August 29, 1734, he mentions all his chil- 
dren, among them " Abigail, the wife of Abraham Water- 
ous." [Hartford Probate Kecords, XII: 261-266.]

ABIGAIL COLLINS, the wife of Samuel Wolcott, was, 
as her gravestone declares, the " Daughter of y* Rev'd Mr. 
Nathaniel Collins, of Middletown " (No. 190) and Mary 
Whiting (No. 191), and was born in Middletown, July 31, 
1681. Her marriage occurred December 27, 1705. She 
died in Wethersfield, where she is buried, February 6, 1758, 
" in the 77*** year of her age." She received by her husband's 
will all the estate which she brought to him at their marriage 
and one-third of his movable estate.

ROBERT FRANCIS, who was perhaps the son of 
Richard Francis of Cambridge, or John Francis of Brain- 
tree, Mass., was born about 1628, and settled in Wethers- 
field, Conn., it is believed, about 1650. His name is first 
found in a record of the Particular Court, March 7, 1650-51, 
where he appears as plaintiff in a suit against John Hollister. 
[Particular Court Records, II : 19.] On the 29th of March, 
1652, he recorded his homestead in Wethersfield, situated 
on the north side of the highway now known as Hartford 
Avenue, and described as '' One pece whereon his house 
standeth con : thre acrs on half e more or lese. the ends Abuts 
Against the way south and Tho: Standish north, the sids 
against the house Lot of John Karingtons west & mr. wels 
East." [Wethersfield Land Records, I: 194.] It had 
earlier belonged to John Lattimer. This tract of land has 
remained in the possession of the Francis family down to 
the present time, and is now owned and occupied by the heirs 
of John and Maria Francis, lineal descendants of the settler. 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 173 

The house of Robert Francis has preserved its identity 
from the earliest years of Wethersfield history down to the 
present time. Its frame may still be seen in the building 
on the lot described above, and now used as a house for the 
storage of corn, wood, and wagons, removed about one hun- 
dred feet from its original location. The timbers are of 
white oak, large and sound, and very heavily braced, though 
the roof joists are badly decayed. The building has been 
recovered and reshingled, perhaps several times; but it has 
always been known by the Francis residents of the home- 
stead as " the old house." It is about thirty by eighteen 
feet in size and has two stories. It is now owned by Miss 
Jennie Francis, in whose direct line the lot has been from 
1651. 

Robert Francis was one of the fifty-eight freemen given 
in the list of 1669. He was elected Fence-viewer in 1672, 
and Surveyor of Highways in 1675, the only offices, so far 
as known, that he held. He drew lands in the allotments 
of 1670 and 1695. 

Robert Francis died in Wethersfield, January 2, 1711-12, 
aged 83 years. He disposed of his property by deed of gift 
to his children. 

97. 

The first name of the wife of Robert Francis was JOAN, 
but her surname before her marriage in 1650 is unknown. 
She died in Wethersfield, January 19 (29, g. s.) 1704-5, 
aged 76.

WILLIAM CHATTERTON of New Haven, Conn., of 
whom Hinman says, he was " perhaps the son of Michael 
Chatterton," who was one of the creditors of William Lotham 
in Connecticut in 1645, and may have been the same Michael 
Chatterton who was in Portsmouth, N. H., in 1640, first 
appears in New Haven in 1646 in the seating of the church. 
He was among those who took the oath of fidelity, April 7, 
1657; was a "husbandman," and received land in New 
Haven in 1679, and perhaps earlier. Thereafter he owned 
various lands, and in 1704 gave land to his son, Samuel, a 
" weaver." 

On January 4, 1699-1700, William Chatterton deeded 
his homestead to his son, John, with the provision that the 
father and mother should live with the son and the latter 
should " pay six half-bushels of good merchantable corn per 
year on demand." [New Haven Land Records, 11:28.] 
He made his will on the 1st of February following, in which 
lie bequeathed to his wife one-third of his real and personal 
estate, to his son, John, " all that farm he stands now pos- 
sessed of given by deed of gift," to his son, Samuel, land in 
the Yorkshire district, and the rest of his estate was to be 
divided among five children, the name of Mercy, who was an 
heir, being omitted in the will as recorded. [New Haven 
Probate Records, III: 158, 159, 172.] The inventory of his 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 175 

estate, taken by Samuel Clark and Mary Chatterton, execu- 
tors, June 13, 1709, amounted to £153 17s. 6d. It included 
" One Gun & sword " valued at 30s. 

99. 

The wife of William Chatterton was MARY CLARK, 
daughter of James Clarke (No. 198), whom he married about 
1660. After the death of her husband she lived some years 
in New Haven, but about 1717 went to live with her daughter, 
Mary Hotchkiss, in Wallingford, and died there February 3, 
1722. In a document dated March 8, 1688-9, James and

OBADIAH DICKINSON, son of Nathaniel Dickinson 
(No. 200) and Ann Gull (No. 201), was born in Wethers- 
field, Conn., April 15, 1641. At the age of eighteen he re- 
moved with his parents to Hadley, Mass. His home was in 
that section of the town which, in 1670, was incorporated as 
the town of Hatfield ; and he had been one of the petitioners 
for a separation in 1667. 

In the attack on Hatfield, September 19, 1677, his house 
was burned by the Indians, his wife severely wounded, and 
he and his child carried as captives to Canada. The year fol- 
lowing he was ransomed and returned to Hatfield, but soon 
removed to Wethersfield, where the last years of his life were 
spent. 

At Wethersfield Sergeant Dickinson was a man of consid- 
erable importance in all matters pertaining to the welfare of 
the townspeople. He was a Townsman in 1691 and 1692, 
and Constable in 1688, and at other times; and he was often 
chosen to serve on public committees. He is always called 
" Sergeant " in the records of the town ; and it is conjectured 
that he served under this title in King Philip's War, in which 
his brothers are known to have taken an active part. 

Obadiah Dickinson died in W^ethersfield, June 10, 1698, 
aged 57. In his will, dated June 7, 1698, he mentions his 
wife, Mehitabel, and children, Sarah Smith, Obadiah, Dan- 
iel, Eliphalet, Noadiah, and Mehitabel, He divided his 
" lands & houseing " in equal proportion among his three 
younger sons, saying of the eldest, " I know not if my son, 
Obadiah, be living." The inventory amounted to £678 8s. 
8d. [Manwaring's Hartford Probate Records, I: 549, 550.]

Beardsley (Xo. 202) and Mary, his wife, who was born in 
Stratford, Conn., about 1641. It is supposed that she died 
shortly after the birth of her son, Eliphalet. He married, 
2nd, in 1690, Mehitabel Hinsdale, daughter of Samuel Hins- 
dale of Hadley, who was born October 18, 1663. She sur- 
vived her husband, but died before March 9, 1701-2. The 
two younger children, Xoadiah and Mehitabel, were by the 
second marriage.

JACOB BRONSON", son of John Bronson (No. 204), 
was born in Hartford, Conn,, in 1640-41. In the church 
records of Farmington, whither his father removed in 1641, 
it is stated that he was " seventeen years old about Jan., 
1657." He lived in Farmington, where he and his wife, 
Mary, were members of the church in March, 1679. His 
father had, during his lifetime, " allotted to his foiire sonns 
each of them a fifth part of his lands in Farmington," and

at the distribution of the estate in 1680 Jacob, the eldest son, 
received £72 2s. 

Jacob Bronson deeded to his son, Jacob, September 2, 
1705, forty-one acres of land east of " Blew hill mountain," 
a lot formerly belonging to William Higginson. On April 
16, 1701, he also deeded to his son, Samuel, the land on 
which his son's dwelling house stood; and on January 15, 
1707-8, he gave land to William Harris as part of the dowry 
of his daughter, Elizabeth. [Farmington Land Records, I: 
28; II: 114, 122.] 

He died in 1708. His will, dated March 13, 1707-8, and 
offered for probate April 5, 1708, mentions a wife, Mary, 
and among other children, a daughter, Rebecca Dickinson. 
His inventory amounted to £166 Is. 2d., and was taken 
March 25, 1708. [Hartford Probate Records, VII: 187,

JOSEPH WEIGHT, son of Thomas Wright (No. 208) 
and his first wife, was born, probably, in Wethersfield, Conn., 
about 1639. He was a cooper by trade. In 1662 he received 
from his father a homestead on the east side of High street 
near the burying ground. This he conveyed to the town for 
use as a parsonage in 1664, receiving a lot with an old school- 
house on it, on the west side of Rose lane (Main street) in 
exchange. This he conveyed to Hugh Welles in 1665, and 
received in exchange a lot on the east side of High street, 
north of his first home. 

Joseph Wright was chosen Constable in 1672 and 1703 ; 
Tov5Tisman in 1690 and 1691. He also held many minor 
offices. He was called " Captain " in 1690, and " Corporal " 
in 1703. He was also a Deacon in the church. 

He was buried in the Wethersfield cemetery, where his 
gravestone has this inscription: Here | lyeth the | body of 
Decon | Joseph Wright, | who departed | this life the 17^** | 
day of December, | Anno Dom. 1714, | aged 75 years. His 
estate was inventoried at £499 18s. 9d. In his will, dated 
February 14, 1711-12, he mentions his wife, Mercy, and 
living children. [Hartford Probate Records, IX: 21.] 

105. 

The first wife of Joseph Wright was Mary Stoddard, 
daughter of John Stoddard (No. 210) and Mary Foote (No. 
211), who was born in Wethersfield, Conn., March 12, 
1643-4, and married December 10, 1663. She died there

JONATHAN DEMING, son of John Deming (No. 
212) and Honor Treat (No. 213), was born in Wethersfield, 
Conn., about 1639. He lived in his native town and was 
familiarly known as " Sergeant " Deming. 

In 1662 he received from the to\^^l a house lot of one and 
a quarter acres, taken from the upper end of Broad street, on 
the east side, near the home of the late W. W. Savage. He 
received also grants of land in Stepney Parish (now Rocky 
Hill). He was a Townsman in 1671, 1672, 1676, 1677, 
1695, and perhaps in other years. He was Surveyor in 1677, 
and Fence Viewer in 1680. 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 181 

The death of Sergeant Deming is thus recorded in the 
Wethersfield To^vn Records. " Jonathan Deming Senior 
Deceased on the 8th day of Janu'ry 1699 :1700 of a verry 
sudden death; being aged about, as he Computed 61 years.'| 
His will, dated March 27, 1696, mentions his wife, Elizabeth, 
and children, Jonathan, Thomas, Charles, Jacob, Benjamin,\ 
Sarah Riley, Comfort, Elusia, Elizabeth, Mary, and Ann. 
It also names a " son-in-law John Williams " in such a way 
as to raise the query whether there was not another older 
daughter who had married John Williams and died before 
March 27, 1696. Some think he was a first husband of his 
daughter Elusia. About 1730 the heirs, or some of them, 
are Thomas, Daniel, Benjamin, and Charles Deming, Ger- 
shom Butler, Stephen Riley, John Morton, John Edwards, 
Nathaniel Beckley, and Samuel Smith. [Wethersfield Land 
Records, VI: 240.] The inventory of his estate amounted 
to £550 14s. 4d. [Hartford Probate Records, VI : 135-139.] 

107. 

The first wife of Jonathan Deming was Sarah, daughter 
of George Graves of Hartford, as proven by the latter's will. 
This marriage occurred November 21, 1660, and she died 
June 5, 1668. He married, 2nd, December 25, 1673, ELIZ- 
ABETH GILBERT, daughter of Josiah Gilbert (No. 214) 
and Elizabeth, his wife, who was born in Wethersfield, March 
28, 1654, and died there September 8, 1714. She left all 
her property by a nuncupative will to her daughters, Mary 
and Ann.

WILLIAM GOODRICH, son of John Goodrich and 
Margaret, his wife, was bom in England, near Bury St. 
Edmunds, Suffolk, and probably came to New England with 
his brother, John, both of them settling in Wethersfield, 
Conn. His earliest homestead, which was on the west side 
of Main street not far below the site of the present Baptist 
church, was purchased of Thomas Ufford (or Uffott) before 
March 3, 1646. It is described as " One pec whereon his 
house and barne standeth con Six acr more or lesse, the ends 
Abut on the way east, and the Comon west, John nott north.

In May, 1656, Ensign Goodrich was admitted a freeman 
of Connecticut, as appears from the Colonial records. We 
learn from the same source that he was elected Deputy to the 
General Court from Wethersfield during five terms between 
1662 and 1666, and was one of the grand jury in May, 1662, 
In 1652 and in subsequent years he was often Juror of the 
Particular Court. An examination of the town records of 
Wethersfield shoAvs tliat he was Townsman or Selectman in 
1654, 1660, 1662, 1666, 1667, 1671, and 1674; member 
of a committee " to nm line " between Hartford and Weth- 
ersfield, in 1657, and to provide a house for the minister, in 
1660. In May, 1665, he was made Ensign of the trainband 
in Wetliersfield, and bore this title until his death. In 
March, 1675, he was appointed by the town one of a com- 
mittee to construct the " palisadoe," supposed to have been 
in the rear of the land where the Frederick Butler house now 
stands. 

Ensig-n William Goodrich died in 1676, leaving an 
estate inventoried, November 14, 1676, at £915 Is. 6d. In 
the distribution December 6, 1676, William received £150.

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF WILLIAM GOODRICH. 

JOHN GOODRICH of Bury St. Edmunds, in the 
County of Suffolk, England, was the father of William 
Goodrich, the early settler in Wethersfield, Connecticut, 
his ancestry and descendants being fully determined and 
published in " The Goodrich Family in America " by La- 
fayette Wallace Case, M.D. John Goodrich was a clothier. 
He inherited from his father, William Gooderich of Heges- 
sett, Suffolk County, yeoman, by his will, dated April 4, 
1631, and proved in the Archdeaconry Court of Sudbury, 
February 2, 1631-2, all the houses, lands, and tenements in 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 185 

Hegessett, and was the executor of the will. The Christian 
name of his wife was Margerie or Margaret, who is men- 
tioned in the will of John Goodrich, dated April 14, 1632, 
and proved May 16, 1632, as also his sons, William Good- 
rich the elder, William Goodrich the younger, John Good- 
rich, and Jeremy Goodrich. John Goodrich, the father of 
this family, was buried April 21, 1632, the same being 
recorded in the Parish Kegister of St. Mary, Bury St. Ed- 
munds. William Goodrich tlie younger, was a clergyman, 
educated at Caius College, Cambridge, in Hegessett in 1678, 
willing property to sons of his brothers William the elder 
and John, who were the early settlers in Wethersfield. The 
English home of this family was, therefore, Hegessett, now 
called Hessett, which is six miles east of Bury St. Edmunds. 
Of this home and the family history in England, an account 
by Hon. Grant Goodrich is published in the above genealogy.

BENJAMIN CHURCHILL, son of Josiah Churchill 

(No. 228) and Elizabeth Foote (No. 229), was born in 

Wethersfield, Conn., May 16, 1652. He lived in his native 

town and is said to have occupied his father's homestead 

after the latter's death in 1686. In his father's will was the 

following provision: " I give unto my son Benjamin, after 

the decease of my wife, my now Dwelling House & Homelott 
24 



186 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

& other Buildings upon sd. Lott, & 7 acres of Land in the 
Great Swamp, & 4 acres in Beaver Meadow, & half my 
5-acre Lott at the upper End of the Great Meadow." He 
also received a legacy from his grandmother, Elizabeth 
(Deming-Foote) Welles, who died July 28, 1683, being 
one-quarter of her " Great Lott which Lyes at the further 
Bownds of the Towne." 

Lieutenant Churchill was many times elected to office. 
He was chosen Surveyor in 1676; Lister, 1681-1684, 1686, 
1694; Constable, 1683, 1695; Townsman for 1690, 1691, 
1700, 1701 ; and filled many other positions of lesser 
importance. In May, 1695, he was appointed by the General 
Court a member of a committee to settle the bounds of the 
lands on the east side of the " Great River " at Naubuc. 
He was made Lieutenant of the trainband in the northern 
part of Wethersfield, May 8, 1701, and in 1703, when the 
military operations in Queen Anne's War were commenced 
in the Colony, he was made Lieutenant of the Second Com- 
pany for Hartford County. 

Benjamin Churchill died in Wethersfield at an advanced 
age, it is believed in 1729.

JOHN DEMING, one of the most prominent of the 
early settlers of Wethersfield, Conn., came, it is believed, 
from Watertowu, Mass., in 1635.* It is said by some that 
the family were French Huguenots and that their name 
originally was DeMing, that they fled after the massacre 
of Saint Bartholomew to England and there changed their 
name to Deming. The Deming Genealogy, issued by Judson 
Keith Deming in 1904, claims that the name was a cor- 
ruption of the English name, Dammon, originally D'Ham- 
mond, " an ancient and illustrious family which has flour- 
ished in Surrey and Buckinghamshire in England and at 
Blois, and Cherbourg in France." [Damon Memorial, and 
Genealogy of the Descendants of John Deming.'] John, the 
settler, is believed to have been the son of John Deming

living in England at the time of the emigration. He was 
born about 1615 and was twenty-two years of age when he 
came to ISTew England. 

His first homestead in Wethersfield, as recorded in 1641, 
was on High street just south of the land now owned and

in the Wethersfield Eecords, " 2d mo. & 25th day, 1641," 
as follows : " One pece wheron his house & bame standeth

purchased at later times at least two other homesteads, but 
probably his life was spent on the first mentioned. 

John Deming was chosen a Townsman in 164Y, 1648, 
1651, 1654, 1662, 1667, 1668; Deputy to the General Court 
at nineteen sessions between 1646 and 1665; and was one 
of the grantees named in the Charter in 1662. He was 
Constable in 1654, and served many times as Grand Juror, 
and Juror in the Particular Court. On February lY, 1685-6, 
a patent for all the territory then embraced in the town- 
ship of Wethersfield, was granted to the proprietors of the 
town. " Mr. John Deming Sr " was one of the nine propri- 
etors particularly mentioned in the patent. The exact date 
of his death has not been found, but his will, dated June 
26, 1690, with a codicil, February 3, 1692, was exhibited 
by his son Samuel November 21, 1705. He probably died 
in 1705. In his will, he mentions his son John, " already 
done well for " ; Jonathan, to whom he bequeathed his " 50

and homelott with all the buildings upon it," containing 
nine acres, a meadow of 17 acres, 12 acres in West swamp,

his house, he paying the debts and funeral charges; David, 
who received all his " materials and tools " in his shop, 
book debts, he to pay those debts he owed about his trade; 
Ebenezer; and his daughters, Morgan, Beckley, Hurlburt,

EMANUEL BUCK was an early settler in Wethers- 
field, Conn., and as he testified in Court in 1684 that he 
was sixty-one years old he was born in 1623. It is thought 
that he may have come to New England from Rowington, 
Warwickshire, England, the former home of John Kirby 
of Middleto\vn, whose daughter he married ; for in a mem- 
orandum in connection with the attempt of Joseph Kirby 
to recover an estate in Rowington, the latter is directed to 
ascertain what his " cousin Buck remembers of the people 
of Rowington." [Kirhy Genealogy, pp. 4, 5.] Emanuel 
Buck was the brother-in-law of Joseph Kirby, but the ref- 
erence is doubtless to one of the Buck family in Wethers- 
field. 

The earlier name of Emanuel Buck seems to have been 
Enoch, for in several instances the two names refer to the 
same person, though the reason for this change of name is 
a mystery. In connection with the settlement of the estate 
of John Kirby, he is several times called " Emanuel Buck 
alias Enoch Buck," and there are other proofs of this fact. 

In 1648, being then called " Enoch," he was before the 
Court and the same year was fined 10s. for " irregular 
speeches in Courte ag' RoV Rose when hee spake vppon his 
oath." [^Connecticut Colonial Records, I: 173, 177.] On 
Ma}'^ 21, 1657, he was made a freeman, and in 1669 he ia 
numbered among the freemen of Wethersfield as " Emanuel " 
Buck. The latter year, he was a Constable in Wethersfield. 
There he owned several tracts of land. His homestead was 
purchased from Edward Scott of Farmington in 1659. The 
town gave him a triangular piece of three rods in 1661 and 
he bought, in 1664, the homestead of Henry Palmer, consist- 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 191 

ing of four and one-half acres. Later, he acquired lands 
on the west side of the town and in Rocky Hill. He bought 
of John and Esther Burr in 1660, a tract which was claimed 
later by the heirs of James Boosey. He was for several 
years a Townsman of Wethersfield and did various services, 
especially in the settlement of estates. 

In March, 1704-5, when Joseph Kirby moved for the 
settlement of his father's estate, it is said of Emanuel Buck, 
who was the only living executor of the will, that he was 
" not capable of acting by reason of his age and infirmities." 
He was living in 1705, but died probably within a few 
years, as the record of his wife's death calls her " Widow 
Mary Buck." No will or administration on his estate has 
been found. He distributed some of his property by deed 
to his children. 

119. 

The baptismal name of the first wife of Emanuel Buck 
was Sarah. Perhaps she was a sister of John Riley of 
Wethersfield or his wife, for in his will in 1674, he refers 
to his " Brother Emanuel Buck." He married her about 
1649, and she died about 1656, leaving three children. He 
married 2nd, April 17, 1658, MARY KIRBY, who was 
then very young for such an alliance, if born as claimed 
in 1644. She died January 17, 1711-12. She is frequently 
named in documents relating to the settlement of the estate 
of John Kirby, her father (No. 238), and in 1707, she had 
received therefrom £52 15s. Od. and there was due her and 
her son David £14 16s. Od. There was also a considerable 
sum then undivided.

Betts of Wethersfield also deeded to his " brother " Nathaniel 
Graves in 1662, twenty-three acres of land, and he bought 
from the widow of John Lattimer, the twenty acres next 
north in 1671. He settled that portion of the estate of his 
father, Thomas Graves, which was located in Connecticut, 
being the " house lot of 3 acres whereon he liveth." He 
was a Juror in 1659 and 1660, Surveyor in Wethersfield

JOHN" BETTS. In the Parish Register in Claydon, 
Oxfordshire, England, is recorded the following : " John Bet, 
the Sonne of John Bet and Mary his wyffe was baptised the 
5th daye of May 1627." This is probably the record of the 
baptism of John Betts, Jr., the son of Mary Betts, widow, 
and brother of Mary Betts who married Samuel Boreman 
originally of Claydon.* If so, John Betts, senior, was per- 
haps descended from " Richard Bett., Cleidon," whose name 
appears in a Lay Subsidy list for Banbury Hundred in 1546 ; 
and he may have been the son John, who is mentioned with 
Margaret, Thomas, l^icholas, Joane, and Anne, as children 
in the will of John Bett, of Kings Sutton, in the immediate 
vicinity of Banbury, dated January 15, 1615. 

131. 

MARY BETTS, " widow," whose husband it is believed 
died either before her emigi-ation to New England or during 
the voyage, was the mother of Mary, Martha, and John Betts, 
and the family was well known among the early settlers of 
Hartford, Connecticut. The mother, " Widdoe Mary Betts," 
had a grant of four acres of land there in 1639-40, being 
among those who had " lotts at the courtisie of the town." 
In the division of lands on the east side of the river, June 
12, 1666, there was set off to her right twelve acres, which

John Betts, June 22, 1678, sold to Mr. William Pitkin, it 
being described in the deed as land " which was his mothers." 

Mary Betts' honse lot, which she had bought of Seth 
Grant before February, 1639-40 (the first date when any 
land in Hartford is recorded), was situated near the bank of 
the Little River, on the east side of the foot of the present 
Trumbull street. In her home there she supported her 
family by keeping a school for young children. The author 
of Hartford in the Olden Time, page 169, thus refers to her : 

" Goody Bets was the School-dame. It appears, then, that 
Hartford at this early period had at least two schools : the 

one taught by William Andrews and anotlier, 

probably under humbler auspices, as a primary school. 

The mistress of this ' woman's school ' held, of 

course, a somewhat humbler position All that I can 

learn of her or her school is contained in the brief record of 

her death yet doubtless there were many of 

the future magistrates and public men of the Colony who 
conned their first lessons from the horn book, at Goodv Betts' 
side in her little schoolroom." 

We learn of the death of Widow Mary Betts, in a letter 
written by Eev. Samuel Stone to Rev. Thomas Shepard of 
Cambridge, dated July 19, 1647, in which after announcing 
the death of Rev. Thomas Hooker, July 7, 1647, he adds the 
item, " Goody Bets the school dame is dead with some 
others."

JOHISr STEELE, one of the original proprietors of 
Hartford, Conn,, was born in England, coming from the 
neighborhood of Braintree, Essex County, to 'New England 
about 1632.* 

He settled, first, in JsTewtown, now Cambridge, where he 
was made a freeman in 1634. He was chosen Deputy to the 
Massachusetts General Court in March, 1634, and in May 
and September, 1635. With Ludlow, Pynchon, and others, 
he was appointed by the General Court, March 3, 1635-6, 
" to govern the people at Connecticut for the space of a year 
next coming." 

John Steele settled in Hartford, owning a homestead on 
the east side of Main street, north of the site now occupied 
by the Wadsworth Athenaeum. He was actively interested in 
the affairs of his town and Colony; was Secretary of the Col- 
ony from 1636 to 1639; and was often chosen Deputy to the 
Connecticut General Court bet^veen the years 1637 and 1657. 
He held the office of Town Clerk in Hartford several vears 
until 1645, when he removed to Farmington, Confi., where 
he was also To^vn Clerk. 

In 1663, " being stricken in yeares and weakness," John 
Steele made a will distributing his estate, wliich was inven- 
toried at £182 6s. Od., among his wife and children. This 
will was probated June 16, 1665. He mentions in it his

The Talcott family is said to have been originally of 
Warwickshire, Eng. The Herald's Visitation of Essex, 
1634, as printed in the Ilarleian Society Publications [XIII, 
Pt. I. p. 497] gives the family of John Talcott and his arms. 
He married, 1st, a Wells, by whom he had two sons, John and 
Robert, and a daughter who married a Barnard. Robert was 
a Justice of the Peace in Colchester, County Essex, and 
married Joanna, daughter of John Drane of B!ran!fo(rd, 
County Suffolk. John Talcott, Sen., married, 2nd, Marie 
Pullen, by whom he had a son Thomas, the Rector of St.

Mary and Mile End in Colchester, and a son John of Madrid, 

Spain, living in 1625, and perhaps bom after the death of 

his eldest son of the same name. He also had by this second 

marriage four daughters, Grace, Joanna, Marie, and Eme. 

He died in 1606, two years after his son John. His widow, 

Marie Pullen Talcott, is said to have died in Colchester about 

1625.

John Talcott, son of John Talcott of Colchester, was of 
Braintree and Fairstead, Essex County, England, and mar- 
ried Anne, daughter of William Skinner. He died in 1604, 
leaving six children. One of them was Jolin Talcott, the 
emigrant, who was a minor at his father's death, as also two 
years later when his grandfather left him £40 in his will to 
be paid when he reached the age of twenty-one. He came to 
New England in the Lion, embarking at London, June 22, 
1632, settling in Cambridge, and coming with Rev. Thomas 
Hooker's Company to Hartford in 1636. He married 
Dorothy Mott, who died in February, 1669-70. The others 
of tliis family were daughters, Rachel, Anne, Mary, Grace, 
and Sarah. Rachel married John Steele, in Braintree, be- 
fore his emigTation to New England.

These included a homestead of three acres, a house and barn, 
on the west side of Broad street, near the present home of 
the Hon. S. W. Bobbins. He disposed of this before May 
11, 1644, and purchased the Robert Coe homestead, corner 
of Broad street and Fletcher Lane. This he sold February 
4, 1646, to John Riley. He was taxed in 1647 on thirty- 
seven acres. In his will he made tlie following bequest to his 
son : " My sonne James shall have my now Dwelling House 
& House Lott, and Barnes & Houses standing thereon, wth 
all the land wch was given me by the To^vne that is now in 
my possession, wch is 12 acres in the Great Mea(dow), 56 
acr of Upland & Swamp, wth 4 acr in Beaver Mea wch was 
named before." The rest of his lands were bequeathed to his 
son Joseph. [Stiles's History of Wethersfield, II: 124.] 

By trade James Boosey was a joiner and wheelwright. 
He was appointed " Gierke " of the trainband as early as 
1639, and was later made Lieutenant. He was Deputy from 
Wethersfield to the General Court in 1639, and annually 
thereafter until his death. In 1641, and in subsequent years, 
he served as Juror. He was appointed by the General Court, 
October 16, 1644, a member of a committee which included 
the Governor, Capt. Mason, and others, to consult with Mr. 
Fenwick concerning the fortification of the mouth of the 
Connecticut River. Lieutenant Boosey was also one of a com- 
mittee of prominent men selected by tlie General Court to 
negotiate with Mr. Fenwick for the purchase of Saybrook 
Fort. 

Lieutenant Boosey died in Wethersfield, June 22, 1649, 
leaving an estate which was inventoried at £983 8s. His will 
was dated the day before his death, and all his five children 
were then minors. [Mauwaring's Hartford Probate Rec- 
ords, I: 98, 99.]

The Christian name of the wife of Lieutenant James 
Boosey was ALICE, whom he married before coming to 
Wethersfield and probably in England. After his death she 
married October 5, 1652, James Wakely, a " weaver " of 
Wethersfield, bnt this was not until two years after the same 
James Wakely brought an action against her for breach of 
promise. The Court decided that there was " some ingage- 
ment " between them, though no formal contract had been 
made. [County Court Records, 1649-63, pp. 15, 16.] 
Thev lived at Wethersfield where he had bv deed of gift 
conveyed property to her, the validity of which conveyance 
was afterwards questioned. On May 14, 1677, " Goodwife 
Alice W^akely " was fined by the court for selling liquor to 
the Indians. 

Alice Wakelv died in Wethersfield in 1683, her inventory 
being exhibited September 6th of that year. It amounted 
to £348 19s. 4d. This included, it seems, the property given 
her by James Wakely, and purchased of Thomas Welles 
February 10, 1656. To recover this he gave Nathaniel Foote 
power of attorney March 15, 1689-90. The property in 
question was a house, bam, and home lot situated on Broad 
street, and other lands. [State Archives, Private Con-

RICHAUD BELDEN, or Belding as the name is some- 
times spelled in the early records, was one of the first settlers 
of Wethersfield, Conn.* It is said by tlie author of the 
Belden Genealogy, that he was tlie son of Sir Francis Baildon 
(Baylden) of Kippax, Yorkshire, England, and was baptized 
May 26, 1591. Stiles in his History of Wethersfield refers 
to^ a certain Richard Baylden who signed a document March 
26, 1613, stating that he was aged nineteen years of age and 
was born at Kippax, Yorkshire, England, and was " intend- 
ing to pass over to Bredaiigh to be a soldier under Cap (t) en 
(afterwards Sir George) Blundell." The age of this man 
does not correspond with the above Richard, but such dis- 
crepancies were not uncommon. Richard Belden of Wethers- 
field is thought by some to have had a brother, William Bel- 
den, of the same town, but the latest opinion, as expressed by 
Stiles, is that William was a son of Richard who must have 
been about fifty years of age when he came to Wethersfield. 

Richard Belden 0A\Tied, April 7, 1641, eight pieces of 
land in Wethersfield, including a homestead situated on the 
east side of Broad street, the north corner of Plain Lane. 
His home lot is thus described in tlie records, the name being 
there Richard Bayldon : " One piece wheron his house stand- 
eth, con three (acres) one rood more or lesse the ends 
abutt against broad Stret North, & the land of Ma : mitchell 
South, the side against the waie leading into ye plaine west

& the house lott of Lejslye Broadfield east." [Wethersfield 
Land Records, I: 214.] 

The further records concerning him are few. On March 
16, 1646, he was chosen Town Herder, as is seen from the 
following item in the Wethersfield Town Votes under that 
date : " Rich : Beldan hath covenanted wth the To^vne to 
Kepe Cows (and) Oxsen to the number of t\velve score or ten 
at four and (twenty) pounds; if above 12 scor then 2s. for 
eury one aboue the number of ( ) and if ther be 

Vnder 12 scor, the same sum of 24 pounds." His compensa- 
tion was to be " four Equall paye : on fourth in wheat, on 
4th in pease, on fourth in barley, on fourth in Indian, sound, 
Dry and well Drest, and the said Rich : is to go out wth the 
Catell in the midle of Aprill, if the ToAvne se met, and the 
wether be fit; his time is to end at the 11th of november, 
etc." It was his duty to keep watch over the herd, and give 
immediate warning to the inhabitants if wolves or other dan- 
gers threatened the stock. That this was not an easy task 
and must have severely taxed his best efforts, we may readily 
infer from the fact that in the year following four Herders 
were elected. 

Richard Belden died in "Wethersfield in 1655. The in- 
ventory of his estate, which amounted to £111 19s. Od., was 
taken August 22d of the above year. [Manwaring's Hart-

EIGHTH GENERATION. 207 

138. 

THOMAS STANDISH, the emigrant ancestor of this 
family, was an early settler in Wethersfield.* It is claimed 
by some that he was a son of Captain Miles Standish of 
Plymouth, by his first wife Rose ; but there is no evidence 
from English records of the existence of such a son and the 
will of that redoubtable warrior of the Pilgrims mentions 
only four sons by his second wife Barbara. Others think 
he was a kinsman of the Captain, perhaps a nephew or 
younger brother. It must be admitted that he was very 
much such a man in Wethersfield as Captain Miles Standish 
was in Plymouth, and there are some reasons to think that 
he came from that Colony to Connecticut. 

Thomas Standish is numbered among the freemen of 
Wethersfield in 1669, and had held lands there for many 
years. In 1641, he had a house and three acres of land on 
the southeast corner of High street and the road to the 
present landing place. This, he sold later to John Deming 
and bought of Andrew Langdon a house near the junction 
of Fort (now Prison) street and Sandy Lane. In 1653-4, 
the island " lyeing by Wethersfield bounds " and encompassed 
by a creek on the north, west and south, was recorded to him 
and he had then been in undisturbed possession for twenty 
years. His title was challenged in 1684 and the question 
finally was carried to the General Court. [Connecticut 
Colonial Records, III: 165.] 

In 1637, Thomas Standish was a soldier in the Pequot 
War, on which account the General Court granted him

of Wethersfield, II : 658ff.

fifty acres in 1617. [Ibid. II: 161.] He also kept the 
Fort in the town. As far as known, he had only one son 
to whom his father conveyed his lands in 1688, on which 
account probably there is no record of the settlement of his 
estate, nor is there extant a complete list of his children. 
His death is recorded December 5, 1693 (5?), at 80 years. 

139. 

The surname of the wife of Thomas Standish is 
unknown. Her first name was SUSAjSTNA, whom he prob- 
ably married in Wethersfield. Stiles conjectures that her 
family name may have been FRANCIS. She died Novem- 
ber 30, 1692, aged 68. Savage suggests that she may have 
been his second wife, and that is altogether likely if Lydia 
Belden was his daughter as she married in 1657.

THOMAS MEAKIN, of Boston, the oldest spelling of 
whose name seems to have been Mekyns, probably came to 
New England, says Savage, in the " Grifiin " in 1633.* 



•Authorities on the Meakin Family are as follows: Savage's Oene- 
alogical Dictionary, III: 191, 192; Judd's History of Hadley, p. 536; 
Parker's History of the Second Church of Hartford; East Hartford 
Town Records. 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 209 

He and his wife, CATHERINE (No. 141), were admitted 
to membership in the First Church of Boston, February 2, 
1634, he being then called " servant to our brother Edmund 
Quincy." He was made a freeman March 9, 1637, and 
probably died about 1645, and his widow then removed to 
Roxbury to live with her son, Thomas. She died there 
'' an aged woman," the " mother of bro. Meakins," Feb- 
ruary 3, 1651. 

Possibly Thomas Meakin came from Derbyshire, Eng- 
land, where John Bancroft of Chellaston in his will, dated 
May 11, 1557, mentions his servant John Meakyn. [N. E. 
Historical and Genealogical Register, LVI: 86.] 

The son, Thomas, removed to Hatfield, where he died 
December 10, 1687, leaving a family of children. Of these, 
his son, Thomas, was at Hartford about 1665 and married 
there, Mary, the daughter of Thomas Bunce, who returned 
there after her husband was killed by the Indians, October 
19, 1675. 

The evidence which supports the belief that John 
Meakin, of Hartford was also a son of Thomas Meakin of 
Boston, is mainly tradition and the evident association of 
the two families at Hartford, where John and his nephew, 
Thomas, appear about the same time and both families are 
afterwards found in the Second Church. Probably the 
Helen Meakin who was drowned at Braintree, December 3, 
1638, was a sister of Thomas and John.

JOHN BIDWELL, whose name is also spelled in the 
records BiddoU, Biddall, Biddle, etc., was one of the early

settlers of Hartford.* He may have been a son of Richard 
Bidwell of Windsor, who died there in 1647, buried Decem- 
ber 25, 1647. Some genealogists assert this as a fact, and 
state that Richard had children, John of Hartford, Joseph 
who married widow Rachel Dean, Samuel who married Feb- 
ruary 2, 1653, Mary Hodgkinson, and Richard. It is prob- 
able that the widow of Richard Bidwell was the Anna who 
married, August 18, 1648, James Eno of Windsor. The 
English family of this name called Bydewell, from the 
Sa:xon Biddulph, " war wolf ", are said to have come 
originally from County Norfolk and County Devon, Eng- 
land. [Stiles's History of Windsor, II: 72.] In the al- 
lotment of 1639, John Bidwell received four acres. He 
was a tanner by trade and owned a tan yard in 1640, located 
on an island in the Little River, now included in Bushnell 
Park between the Memorial Arch and the foot of Trumbull 
street. His house lot was not far away, being between that 
of Mary Betts and Seth Grant's on Trumbull street. He 
also owned various tracts of land, mainly on the east side 
of the Connecticut River, which his son, John, inherited. 
John Bidwell held several minor offices in the town, and 
was one of the original members of the Second Church, as 
was his wife. He died in 1687. His inventory was taken 
June 4, 1687, and amounted to £419 10s. 6d. In his will, 
dated February 10, 1680, he mentions his wife, Sarah, sons, 
John, Joseph, Samuel, and Daniel, and daughters Sarah 
House, Hannah Waddams, and Mary Meekins. To John 
Meekins, his " grandson ", he leaves one-half of his upper

was born about 1634, probably in England. He settled in 



212 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

Wethersfield where, in 1670, the town gave him land to set 
his " shop " upon. He bought James Treat's lot in the 
Great West Field in 1671 and Samuel Martin's lot there 
in 1672, and afterwards other lands there. His homestead 
was on the west side of Main street and was bought of 
Jonathan Smith in 1678. On this place, his son, Samuel, 
lived in 1689. Probably he himself then lived in a house 
with three acres which he bought of his brother, James 
Wright, in 1681, situated on the northwest corner of Rose 
Lane and Back Lane. One-half acre of this place he sold 
to his son-in-law, Daniel Boreman in 1685. 

He was chosen TowTisman in 1670, 1675, and 1679, 
and was also a Lister, Constable, Fence-viewer, etc. In 
May, 1680, he was confirmed Ensign of the trainband in 
Wethersfield, and thereafter bore that title. In 1687, he 
was appointed by the General Court to fix the bounds of 
lands at Naubuc; and was frequently called to serve on 
committees in his town. 

Ensign Samuel Wright died in Wethersfield, February 
13, 1689-90, " ae ab 56 " leaving an estate inventoried at 
£1,082 9s. Od. In his will, dated January 16, 1689-90, he 
bequeathed to his " eldest son, Samuel Wright, that Home- 
lott where his present Dwelling house now stands " and all 
the land adjoining the same which he had purchased of 
Jonathan Smith. To his son, David, he gave his own 
dwelling house and home lot with the buildings. To each 
of his daughters, Mary and Hannah, he gave a " parcel of 
money " marked with their initials. He also mentioned his 
" kinswoman," Hope Butler, and his brother-in-law, Samuel 
Butler. His son-in-law, Daniel Boreman, was one of the 
executors. [Hartford Probate Records, V: 49, 50.]

EDWARD CAMP, of :N'ew Haven, was bom in England 
about 1622, and is believed to have been a relative of Nicholas 
Camp, 1st, of Milford, Conn. (See No. 82.)* He first 
appears in Ncav Haven, September 6, 1643, when he was 
fined for being late at the last training. He took the oath 
of fidelity July 1, 1644, but he is not found in the list of 
New Haven families in 1641-1643. The inference from this 
fact is that if he was then in Connecticut, he was living else- 
where. It is more likely, however, that he was either young 
when he came to New England, or, if a new comer in 1643, 



* On the family of Edward Camp see: Hinman's Puritan Settlers 
of Connecticut, p. 470; Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, I: 331;

History of Waterbury.

unmarried. He is mentioned several times in the New 
Haven records and resided there until his death, which oc- 
curred in 1659. The inventory of his estate, which amounted 
to £100 5s. 3d., was taken September 22, 1659, and was 
presented by his widow, Mary Camp, on the 1st of l^ovem- 
ber following. [New Haven Probate Records, I: pt. 1, 87. 
New Haven Colonial Records, II: 401.] 

Edward Camp was a farmer and lived in that section 
of New Haven then called " Chestnut Hill." After his 
death his family removed, for reasons elsewhere stated, to 

Milford. 

149. 

The first name of the wife of Edward Camp was MARY. 
In her will, dated February 22, 1680, she says: "I leave 
Brother Canfield & John Fiske as overseers." This was 
undoubtedly Thomas Canfield who was witness to the will. 
There were then two men of that name, father and son, in 
Milford. The son was born October 14, 1654, and married 
February 26, 1679, Rebecca Adkinson (Nos. 80 and 81), 
and as Mary Camp was bom about 1622, she did not prob- 
ablv refer to the son, Thomas Canfield, as " brother." If 
this designation is to be taken literally, Thomas Canfield 
the father was her brother. He married before 1650, Phebe 
Crane, of Wethersfield (Nos. 160 and 161). It is not 
improbable that Mary Camp was a sister of either Thomas 
Canfield or Phebe Crane. There are indications in the 
Milford records of some relationship between these two 
families, and Samuel Camp, son of Mary, was one of the 
witnesses to the will of Thomas Canfield, February 23, 
1687-88, and in 1695 married his widow. It is thought to 
be most likely that widow Camp's maiden name was MARY 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 215 

CANFIELD, and that she was a sister of Thomas Canfield, 
1st, the settler. 

It is recorded of John Lane in the Milford records that 
he married April 4, 1662, " The widow Camp that lived 
at Chestnut Hill." John Lane, who resided in Milford and 
had several children by a former marriage, was a man of 
good estate, and in his home the Camp children lived until 
maturity. He died in 1669, and in his will, dated Septem- 
ber 10th of that year, he made bequests to his wife's chil- 
dren, Samuel, Edward, and Mary. In a codicil also, executed 
the day following, he made a bequest to his " daughter-in- 
law " (step-daughter), Mercy Baldwin. Samuel Camp is 
mentioned before Edward, and for this and other reasons 
is thought to have been the elder. The bequest to him was 
as follows : " I give unto my son-in-law Sam" Campe my 
two beast steares of two yeare old." Provision was also 
made for the widow, but at her death, his lands were to go 
mainly to his son, Isaac Lane, who with a daughter Sarah, 
the wife of Jobamah Gunn of Derby, were the children of 
his first wife. By Mary Camp he had no children. [New 
Haven Probate Eecords, I, pt. 2, 24; Lane Genealogies, II: 
219-221.] 

Mary Camp Lane died in 1680. Her will, dated Feb- 
ruary 22, 1680, names her " foure children," Samuel, Ed- 
ward, Mercy Baldwin and Mary Briscoe, her daughter, 
Mehitabel Camp (wife of Edward), " daughter-in-law Sarah 
Gunn," and " son-in-law Jobamah Gunn." It should be 
noted that she does not mention a wife of her son Samuel, 
and the reason as shown elsewhere was that Hannah Betts, 
the first wife of Samuel Camp, had died about a month 
before her will was made. Her inventory amounted to £65

JOHN SMITH, the emigrant ancestor of this family, 
was one of the early settlers in Milford, Conn.* It is said 
that he came from Hertfordshire, England, and was " one 
of several who were unable to leave England in 1637 when 
Rev. Peter Prudden and others of that section sailed in the 
company of Rev. John Davenport." Perhaps he was one 
of the family of Smith of Haddon Hall. He located first 
at New Haven, perhaps making the voyage in one of the 
three ships that sailed from England directly for New 
Haven in 1639. He settled in Milford about 1640, and 
shortly afterwards had a home-lot of four acres, three of 
which he bought of William Stow. He owned, later, other

lands, among them a tract on the west side of East River 
and another in the " New Meadow Plain." John Smith 
was a man of some prominence in Milford and there are 
indications that he was highly respected. He died in N'ovem- 
ber, 1684. The inventory of his estate amounted to £513 
3s. 9d.

John Smith married in 1642, GRACE HAWLEY, who, 
from the subsequent association of the families, may well be 
thought to have been a sister of Joseph Hawley of Stratford, 
Conn. If so, the family were from Derbyshire, England, 
for Joseph Hawley, in his will, gave to his son, Samuel, all 
his lands and buildings in Parwidge (Parwich) in Derby- 
shire. She joined the Milford Church, April 17, 1642. She 
died in 1690, her will being dated I^ovember 26, 1689. In 
it she mentions her daughter-in-law Phebe, the wife of John 
Smith, Ephraim Smith, Mary Gunn, " widow," of Derby, 
and Mehitabel Camp, the wife of Edward Camp. To the 
latter, she bequeathed £5. Her inventory amounted to £61 
lis. 7d. [New Haven Probate Records, II: 90.]

JOHN SHERMAN" of Milford, Conn., and Watertown, 
Mass., was one of the most highly honored of the early 
ministers of New England.* A sketch of his life can only 
state its principal events. 

Rev. John Sherman was the son of Edmund Sherman 
of Dedham, Essex County, England, where he was born De- 
cember 26, 1613, and baptized the 4th of the following 
month. At an early age, he was sent to Emanuel College, 
Cambridge, took the degree A. B. in 1629-30, and his second 
degree in 1633. He came to New England in 1634, sailing 
from Ipswich in the ship " Elizabeth " and arriving in the 
month of June. He was assistant to Rev. George Phillips 
of Watertown for about a year, removing to Wethersfield, 
Conn,, with the company who settled that town in 1635. At 
the latter place he had; a house lot. He remained there 
until 1640, when he moved to Milford, Conn., being admitted 
to the church there on the 20th of November. In 1641, he 
was chosen magistrate, and Deputy in 1643. Although he 
was urged to remain in Milford, he preferred to accept a 
pastorate at Watertown and returned thither in 1647. 

The remainder of Mr. Sherman's life was spent in the 
service of the church at Watertown, where he was honored 
and respected. It is said of him, he was " one of the most 
learned men of his day and an able and eloquent preacher." 
He died August 8, 1685. His will, made two days before 
his death, names thirteen children.

EIGHTH GENERATION. 219 

163. 

It is not probable, says Savage, that John Sherman was 
married when he came to New England. The Christian 
name of his first wife was MARY, whom he is thought to 
have married in Watertown or Wether sfield about 1638. She 
died at Milford, September 8, 1644. She was the mother of 
the four older children. He married, 2nd, in New Haven 
about 1645, Mary Laimce, a great-granddaughter of Thomas 
Darcy, Earl of Rivers, who died March 9, 1710.

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF JOHN SHERMAN. 

The " Ancestry of Rev. John Sherman and Captain 
John Sherman " by Charles A. White, published in the New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register, July, 1897, 
and issued separately with additional notes the same year, 
gives the following line of ancestors of Rev. John Sherman 



220 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

of Watertown, to which other authorities have since added 
the first generation:* 

I. 

Thomas Sherman of Yaxley, Suffolk County, England, 
was the father of Henry Sherman. 

II. 

Henry Sherman, " the elder of Colchester," who is said 
to have removed to Dedham, Essex County, England, mar- 
ried 1st, Agnes Butler, who was buried October 14, 1580, 
and 2nd, Margery Wilson, a widow. His will, dated 
January 20, 1589, and proved July 25, 1590, names his 
sons, Henry, Edmund, and Robert. 

III. 

Edmund Sherman, the son of Henry, was of Dedham, 
Essex County, England. He married 1st, April 25, 1569, 
Anna Pellatte, who was buried June 8, 1584, and 2nd, 
September 11, 1584, Anne Clere, whose will, dated August 
3, 1609, was proved January 12, 1609-10. Edmund Sher- 
man's will, dated August 1, 1599, was proved April 30, 
1601. He had, by his first wife, Edmund, Richard who 
died in Boston in 1660, and Bezaleel who died in 1618. 
By his second wife, he had Samuel, John, and Benjamin. 

IV. 

Edmund Sherman, son of Edmund and grandson of 
Henry, is thought to have married Joane Maken. He came 
to New England in 1632, settled in Watertown, Mass., 
removed thence to Wethersfield and finally to New Haven

where he died in 1641. He was the father of Edmund, 
who came to Waterto^vn, returned to England, and died in 
1673, Kev. John of Watertown, and Hon. Samuel of Strat- 
ford, Conn. 

154. 

NICHOLAS STREET, of Taunton, Mass., and New 
Haven, Conn., was the ancestor of the family of that name 
in America. He was the son of Nicholas Street, of Bridge- 
water, Somerset County, England, and his wife, Susanna 
Gilberd or Gilbert, and was baptized there January 29, 1603. 
His mother died within a month of his birth, being buried 
February 22, 1603, and his father died when he was thirteen 
years old. From the latter as the eldest son he received by 
will the estate called Rowbarton, in Taunton. 

At the age of eighteen, Nicholas Street entered Oxford 
University, being an attendant at Pembroke College, and he 
received his B. A. degree February 21, 1624-5. His step- 
mother, Mary Street, died in 1626, and his life thereafter 
until he came to New England, is unknown. Doubtless, his 
religious opinions led to his emigration. He was ordained 
before coming to New England, and installed as teacher over 
the church at Taunton, Mass., in 1637, on the same day 
that Rev. William Hooke was installed pastor. 

After laboring in Taunton for many years, he was led 
to remove to New Haven and was installed there as teacher 
over the First Church, and associate of Rev. John Daven- 
port, November 26, 1659. His home in New Haven was 
located on College street. Here he labored the remainder of 
his life, dying on the 22nd of April, 1674. His will was 
dated April 14th of that year and his inventory was taken 
May 13th. His estate amounted to £326 18s. 7d. including 



222 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

the property of his second wife. He mentions in his will 
his son Samuel, and three daughters, Susanna Mason, Sarah 
Heaton, and Abiah Sherman. Of the life of this early 
'Nev? England teacher much has been written and more 
might be to his honor and praise. 

155. 

Rev. Nicholas Street married his first wife in England. 
Emery says in his Ministry of Taunton, that she was a sister 
of Elizabeth Pool, the maiden founder of Taunton, Mass., 
and a daughter of Sir William Pool, the antiquary, but of 
this no evidence has yet appeared and no place is found for 
such a daughter in that family. His children were by this 
wife. She died in New Haven. He married, 2nd, Mrs. 
Mary Newman, widow of Governor Francis Newman of 
New Haven. After his death she became the 3rd wife of 
Governor Leete, and died December 13, 1683.

EIGHTH GENERATION. 223 

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF NICHOLAS STREET. 

I. 

In the Street Genealogy, the ancestry of Rev. Nicholas 
Street is traced to Richard Street, a clothier of Stogumber, 
Somersetshire, England, who was the first of the family 
known. He died in 1591, his will being dated September 
10th of that year. He had sons Michael, Robert, Thomas, 
John, and Nicholas. 

IL 

Nicholas Street, the son of Richard, was doubtless 
Nicholas Street, gent., of Bridgewater, Somersetshire, Eng- 
land. His name appears in the calendar of Taimton Manor 
in 1593. His will was proven May 3, 1610. His wife 
Mary was living in 1609. He had Nicholas, Jr., Mary, 
Thomas, and Jane. 

in. 

Nicholas Street, Jr., gent., was of Bridgewater. He 
married, 1st, January 16, 1602, Susanna Gilberd, who died 
in 1603; and, 2nd, Mary, whose will was proved February 
6, 1626. His will dated November 1, 1616, was proved 
February 13, 1617. He had, I. Nicholas, of Taunton and 
New Haven. II. Edward, bapt. May 1, 1607. III. John.

156. 

JOHN BURWELL, son of John Burwell (No. 312) and 
Alice, his wife (No. 313), was born in England. He came 



224 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

with his father to New England and settled at Milford, Conn. 
Doubtless he was assigned lands there on becoming of age, 
but they cannot be clearly distinguished from those of his 
father. Perhaps he was the owner of the one acre and three 
roods at Mill Neck. He seems to have been a mechanic, either 
a carpenter or blacksmith. 

In 1659 and 1661 he appears as a witness in a case con- 
cerning the ownership of a horse, which suggests that he may 
have lived near Oyster River where Ensign Samuel Burwell 
afterwards had his farm. [New Haven Colonial Records, 
II: 278,390.] 

John Burwell died in early life leaving a family of young 
children. The inventory of his estate was taken April 13, 
1665, and amounted to £87 18s. 9d. To this there was added 
later " The goods received from England of the rest of his 
estate," £17 12s. 8d. [New Haven Probate Records, I : Pt. 
2, 76.] It appears from the records of the New Haven 
County Court that John Burwell died intestate, and that 
Samuel Burwell, " his brother," appeared before the court, 
November 12, 1679, with John Burwell, " the eldest son," 
with reference to the settlement of the estate, which was in- 
solvent. At this time two other children had received their 
portions, probably daughters who had married. It then ap- 
peared from documents exhibited that the goods from Eng- 
land were " the rent of a certain tenem*^ or tenem*^ belonging 
by coppye hold tenure to ye s^ deceased & to his heyres." 
John Browne Sen^ was then the overseer of the estate and 
minor children. [New Haven County Court Records, I: 
118.] It is believed that Ensign Samuel Burwell of Oyster 
River was a younger son of the above John Burwell. 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 325 

157. 

The name of the wife of John Burwell is unknown. He 
married probably in Milford. It is thought that her first 
name may have been Mary, and that she was the Mary Bur- 
well who afterwards married John Browne of Milford.

BENJAMIN^ BUNNELL was the son of William Bun- 
nell (No. 316) and Ann Wilmot (No. 317). He subscribed 
to the oath of fidelity April 7, 1657, and was propounded as 
a freeman of Connecticut in 1670. He owned several tracts 
of land in New Haven, where he lived, which fell to his 
family. He died in 1696, his inventory, which amounted to 
£261 19s. Od., being taken September 8, 1696. In the set- 
tlement of his estate it appeared that a marriage contract 
had been made between him and his second wife which was 
not executed. She received all the property which she had 
before marriage and ten. pounds. [New Haven Probate 
Records, II: 182; New Haven County Court Records, I: 
244, 245.] 

159. 

The first wife of Benjamin Bunnell is said to have been 
REBECCA MxiLLORY, daughter of Peter Mallory (No. 
318) and his wife, who was born in New Haven May 18, 
1649. She was the mother of his children excepting an 
infant child which he left by his second wife. Rebecca Bun- 
nell died in New Haven about 1693. He married, 2nd,

160. 

THOMAS CANFIELD, or Campfield as the name was 
sometimes written, was born in England, but though several 
families there bear tlie name, his immediate ancestry has 
not been determined.* He was an early settler in Milford, 
Conn., in 1646 or before, and had perhaps been in New 
Haven still earlier. He was granted a home-lot and t^vo 
acres of land at Milford, December 31, 1646, and other lands 
later. 

Thomas Canfield became a member of the Milford 
church, March 1, 1656. On May 13, 1669, he was ap- 
pointed Sergeant of the trainband of Milford. He was 
elected Deputy to the General Court in 1673, 1674, and 
1676. Sergeant Canfield was a brotlier or cousin of Mat- 
thew Camfield, one of the patentees of the Charter of King 
Charles the Second. He died in Milford in 1689. His will

is dated February 23, 1687-8, and mentions his wife and 
children. [Thomas Canfield and Matthew Cam field with 
their Descendants, pp. 110-113.] 

161. 

The wife of Thomas Canfield was PHEBE CRANE, 
whom he married probably about 1650. She is said to have 
been " of Wethersfield," and is thought to have been a sister 
of Benjamin Crane of that town, who died in 1691, and 
also of Lieutenant Henry Crane, who was at Wethersfield, 
Guilford, and Killingworth, and was appointed one of the 
distributors of the estate of Benjamin Crane, March 13, 
1693-4. The father of Benjamin, Henry, and Phebe Crane, 
if the above is true, is said in the Crane Genealogy to have 
been John Crane of " Muddy Brook " (Brookline), Mass., 
where he owned land in 1637, and who was a Deputy to the 
General Court in 1649. He probably died, or returned to 
England, as nothing further is known of him. The Milford 
church records have, as admitted to membership May 4, 
1671, " Phebe the wife of bro Tho^ Camfield." Phebe Can- 
field died in 1690; her will is dated July 28, 1690, she 
" being sicke & weake in body."

EDWAED CAMP, See No. 148. 

166. 

WILLIAM CAMP is said to have been a son or relative 
of Nicholas Camp, 1st, of Milford, though documentary evi- 
dence seems to be lacking. The name William Camp is 
fonnd among those of Nasing, Essex Count}'^, England. He 
was in Milford, Conn., at an early date and was given land 
there. In that town, he was married January 29, 1661-2, 
by Mr. Gilbert, Deputy Governor, to MARY SMITH of 
New Haven. His children born there were John, November 
28, 1662, Mary, March 22, 1663-4, and Sarah, November 18, 
1666. He united with the company of that to^vn who re- 
moved and settled Newark, N. J., in 1667, where his son, 
Samuel, was born in 1669, and died September 28, 1744, 
leaving many descendants. William Camp is mentioned in 
deeds there as late as 1698, and probably died soon after- 
wards. In 1695, he received a grant of 100 acres of land 
in Essex County, N. J., and was otherwise a large land 
owner. His wife, Mary, was living in 1694. 

168. 

JOHN MOSS of New Haven and Wallingford, was the 
emigrant ancestor of this family.* He was an original settler 
at New Haven and signed the compact of 1639. On Eebru- 
SiTj 18, 1639-40, he was admitted a freeman by the General 
Court. He was fined one shilling in 1640 for felling trees. 



* The following are authorities on the Moss family : Coe's Hall 
Memoranda, pp. 28-34; Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, III: 246, 
247; N. E. Historical and Genealogical Register, IX: 361. 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 229 

Perhaps this offense was in connection with the business he 
seems to have conducted of loading and unloading ships by 
the use of lighters. 

In 1642, John Moss was appointed Corporal of the 
trainband. The year following, he appears in the list of 
inhabitants with a family of three persons, estate £10, land 
in the first division eight acres, second division, eight acres, 
two acres of meadow, and nearly two acres in the Neck. In 
1648, he was propounded for six acres at Oyster River. He 
signed the oath of fidelity in 1644, is seated in the meeting 
house in 1646, as is also his wife, " Goody Mosse," and was 
doubtless the John Morse who, that year, " beinge bidd to 
walke the rownds on a Lords day, came into the meeting 
howse & stayed there, so that the service was neglected," for 
which he was fined ten shillings. He served on various com- 
mittees in toA\ni affairs, and seems to have grown steadily in 
favor in the community. In 1664, he was Deputy in the 
General Court of the N^ew Haven Colony, and from 1667 to 

1670 he was Deputy for New Haven to the Connecticut 
General Court. 

The latter year, John Moss removed to Wallingford, of 
which town he was one of the founders. In its affairs, he 
was for many years very active and influential, a commis- 
sioner of the town, and its Deputy to the General Court in 

1671 and later. It is said that his home-lot in Wallingford 
was a short distance below the present residence of Constant 
Webb at the south end of the village, and that he failed to 
settle this lot and it was given to his son, John. [Davis's 
History of Wallingford, p. 857.] On November 30, 1687, 
ninety-nine acres of land were recorded to him, which he re- 
ceived as the first part of the second division, and afterwards 



230 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

passed to his son, John. This tract was just north of land 
belonging to Rev. Samuel Street. [Wallingford Land Rec- 
ords, I: 29, 30.] He had lands, however, in the town at an 
earlier date. 

John Moss continued actively in his interests to an ad- 
vanced age, living with his son, John, in his later years. He 
died in 1707 and his gravestone in the Wallingford ceme- 
tery has this inscription: M*" | John Moss | Born 1604 | 
Died 1707 | M 103. 

The name of the wife of eTolm Moss has not been deter- 
mined. In 1648 he was attorney for his " brother-in-law," 
John Charles, a seafaring man who lived in Branford and 
Saybrook. Possibly her maiden name was Charles or they 
married sisters. 

The English ancestry of John Moss is unproven, but 
there is a family tradition that he was connected with that 
of Charles Moss, Bishop of St. Davids in 1766 and Bishop 
of Bath and Wells in 1774, whose son, Charles, was Bishop 
of Oxford, in 1807. He was surely of a former generation. 
The name was an honorable one in England, and was borne 
by several other distinguished men. John Moss of New 
Haven and Wallingford was a " cousin " of John Beach of 
the latter town and so calls him in a deed in 1689. In 1648, 
while living in New Haven, he gave land to Richard Beach, 
and perhaps the same land called that year " Richard 
Beeches wives lot." The connection between these two fam- 
ilies is unknown to us.

SAMUEL LOTHROP, son of John Lothrop (No. 340), 
and Hannah Howse (No. 341), was born in England about 
1620. He probably came to Ncav England with his father. 
Rev. John Lothrop in 1634, being about fourteen years of 
age, and lived with him at Scituate and Barnstable, Mass., 
until his maturity. In 1643, he was a member of tlie Barn- 
stable Company, and is said to have seen military seiwice in 
1654 under Major Simon Willard. His trade was that of 
a house carpenter, and he worked at it for a time in Boston, 
but in 1648 removed to New London, Conn., where he was 
one of the builders of the meeting-house. The year follow- 
ing, he was appointed assistant magistrate tliere. 

In 1668, Samuel Lothrop took up his residence in Nor- 
wich. He erected a house on the town street before 1670, 
having a lot granted to him August 24, 1668. Perhaps his 
removal to Norwich was in consequence of his occupation, 
for in 1668 he was engaged in " repairing and heightening 
the meeting house." He was Constable in 1682, Townsman 
in 1685, and a prominent man in the town's affairs. He 
died in Norwich, February 29, 1700, making a nuncupative 
will five days before his death.

In the records of the church at Barnstable which Rev. 
John Lothrop served, he made the following entry : " My 
sonn Samuel and Elizabeth Scudder marryed att my house, 
Nov. 28, 1644." She was born about 1622, a daughter of 
Thomas Scudder (No. 342), a sister of John Scudder of 
Barnstable, and a member of the First Church in Boston, 
from which she was dismissed with recommendation Novem- 
ber 10, 1644, evidently with her marriage in view. She 
died about 1688. Samuel Lothrop married 2nd, in Ply- 
mouth, in 1690, Abigail, daughter of John Doane of Ply- 
mouth, who was born January 13, 1631-2, and died in 
Norwich, as her gravestone reads, January 23, 1734-5, " in 
ye 104th year of her age."

JOHN HALL of Wallingford, the emigrant ancestor of 
tliis family, was a prominent man among the early settlers 
of Connecticut. His life has been ably written by Mr. James 
Shepard of New Britain, Conn., in his monograph entitled, 
John Hall of Wallingford, and by Mr. Charles S. Hall in 
the Hall Ancestry. The latter writer says that the name 
Hall is of Saxon origin, and that those settlers in England 
from the city of Halle, Saxony, received the surname de 
Halle, afterwards shortened to Hall. The immediate Eng- 
lish ancestry of John Hall has not been determined, but it 
is thought that he may have come from the neighborhood of 
Meriden in Warwickshire. 

The identity of John Hall has been established by Mr. 
Shepard in his monograph, where ample evidence is given 
to prove the following details of his life. He was born in 
England about 1605 and came to New England either with 
the party of Rev. Thomas Hooker in 1632 or with those who 
came the year following. He was made a freeman in Boston, 
May 14, 1634, at the same time with Hooker, Stone, and 
others with whom he was afterwards associated. He is be- 
lieved to have been the John Hall who accompanied John 
Oldham early in September, 1633, on a trading expedition 
to Connecticut, going overland through the wilderness and 
penetrating as far south as the sites afterwards chosen by 
the settlers of tlie river towns, Windsor, Hartford, and 
Wethersfield. He may also have accompanied a second ex- 
pedition thither the same year. In 1634, he came to W^eth- 
ersfield with the advance settlers, or as some think, to Hart- 
ford the year following. In Hartford, he owned, as early as 
the land can be traced, six acres by " the townes Courtesie," 
80

which shows that he was not a contributor to the common 
fund. This land was in two pieces, — a home-lot of two 
acres " abutting on the little river on the south and on the 
hyway leading from the mill into the Contre on the East 
and on the North, and on the old pasture on the West," and 
also " One parcell lying in the Pyne field " of four acres. 
The former tract was on Lord's Hill, now called Asylum 
Hill, and the eastern section of it west of the railroad. The 
latter tract was in " Pinefield " north of Asylum Avenue and 
south of Albany Avenue. Together they make up the six 
acres recorded to John Hall, who is believed to have been 
another man than John Hall '' Senior," who was in Hart- 
ford for several years after 1689 and removed to Middle- 
town. This land, John Hall sold to William Spencer when 
he removed to Xew Haven. 

W^ile he was living in Hartford, John Hall was a soldier 
in the Pequot War, and in October, 1698, his son, Thomas 
Hall of Wallingford, received fifty acres of land from the 
General Court of the Colony " in consideration of his father's 
service in the Pequott Warre." [Connecticut Colonial Rec- 
ords, lY : 276.] 

The exact date of John Hall's removal to New Haven 
cannot be given, but he was one of the later signers of the 
compact of 1639. It is certain that he removed thither be- 
fore January 17, 1641, when he received land on Mill 
Kiver. On July 1, 1644, he took the oath of fidelity, and 
he is afterwards mentioned in New Haven records for a 
period of thirty years. 

John Hall was one of the original proprietors of Wall- 
ingford, removing thither in 1670, when he was about sixty- 
five years of age, though he may also have retained a resi-

dence in New Haven. He died in Wallingford in 1676, the 
inventory of his estate which amounted to £189 5s. 5d., 
being taken on the 3rd of May that year. In his nuncupa- 
tive will he left all his estate to his wife. [Xew Haven 
Probate Eecords, I: pt. 2; 58.] 

173. 

John Hall married in Xew Haven " in 1643 or early 
in 1644 " JEA^'^XE W0LLE:N, who had come from 
England with the family of William Wilkes in 1633, 
and had removed to Xew Haven with Governor Eaton 
in 1637. Wilkes embarked for England in the New Haven 
ship which was lost at sea in 1646. It is said that Jeanne 
Woollen was " well educated and of good descent, her 
family being entitled to bear the crest ^ a demi-lion, be- 
tween its paws a cushion tasselled.' " She was promised, 
by Mr. Wilkes, an annual allowance and a marriage 
portion if she remained with the family for five years. This 
claim made by John Hall in his wife's behalf was allowed 
in the settlement of Mr. Wilkes' estate. 

After the deatli of her first husband, Jeanne Wollen 
Hall married John Cooper, Sen. This marriage occurred 
between December 18, 1678, when she deeded land as " Jane 
Hall," and ]\Iarch 25, 1679, Avhen in the acknowledgment of 
the same, she is described as '' The above said Jane Hall 
(now Jane Cooper)." She removed to New Haven, where 
her husband died in 1690, and she died soon afterAvards in 
the same year.

JOHN WALKER of New Haven was the emigrant an- 
cestor of this line.* He came to New England in 1633 and 
was made a freeman in Boston, May 14, 1634. There he re- 
sided for several years, and in 1637 was among those who ac- 
cepted the teachings of Mrs. Anne Hutchinson. On this ac- 
count he was disarmed and compelled to leave the Colony. 
He fled with Roger Williams and others to Rhode Island in 
1638, and on the 7th of March that year, was one of those 
who signed the compact of civil government. The following 
year, he removed to New Haven, where he was also one of the 
later signers of the covenant of 1639, and took the oath of 
fidelity in 1644. He shared in the various allotments of 
land there, having a home-lot on the West Creek and lands 
elsewhere. 

The death of John Walker occurred in 1652, his inven- 
tory being dated the 22nd of April.

The baptismal name of John Walker's wife was GRACE, 
but her family name is unknoMm. We may infer from the 
date of birth of his oldest child tliat they were married in 
New Haven. After the death of John Walker, she married, 
July 1, 1652, Edward Watson, by whom she had a daughter 
Grace, the wife of Thomas Hall, the brother of Samuel Hall

ELEAZER STENT was an early settler in New Haven, 
but his name does not appear in the census of 1641-43. It 
is believed that he came to New England about that time. 
The tradition in the Stent family is that a clergyman of this 
name emigrated from England for Virginia, but died on the 
passage, leaving a widow and son who later found his way 
to New Haven. Eleazer Stent had a son born to him in 
January, 1645, named Eleazer, and a daughter Elizabeth 
(No. 89). No other children are kno"UTi, and he probably 
died within a few vears. His widow married Thomas Bea- 
mond of New Haven, who died about 1687. His step-son, 
Eleazer Stent of Branford, was appointed administrator on 
Thomas Beamond's estate, and in several deeds of land in 
1687, calls " Thomas Beamond of New Haven," his " father-

settlers there, married Elizabeth, daughter of John Butler 
of Hartford, had a large family and died in 1706.

ROBEET DENISOX became a settler in Milford, 
Conn, in 1645, and a home-lot was recorded to him Decem- 
ber 28, 1646.* This lot was of three acres and was bought of 
Nathan Gould, later of Fairfield. It was located in the 
" upland " tier between James Prime and Zachariah Whit- 
man. [Milford Land Records, I: 81, 103; Atwater's His- 
tory of New Haven Colony, p. 155.] He owned later vari- 
ous other tracts of land, in " Adding Plaine," the " Indian 
Planting Field," and the north Meadow. In 1655, he was 
one of the purchasers of the lands called Paugasuck (Derby), 
but sold his interest to Edward Riggs [Derby Records, pp. 
3-13]. He was one of the company of thirty persons who 
emigrated from Milford in May, 1666, and founded the 
town of Newark, New Jersey. On June 24, 1667, he signed 
the " fundamental agreements " entered into by the found- 
ers of the txywn. He was given a lot adjoining that of Rev. 
Mr. Pierson whose immediate neighbor on the other side 
was Robert Treat. He died in Newark before 1676 in which 
year a survey was made for his " Widow " Esther Denison. 

181. 

The name of the first v^ife of Robert Denison is un- 
known. Wlien he went to settle at Milford, he appears to 
have been a widower with two children, — James and Mary.

JARVIS (GERVASE) BOYKIN emigrated to I^ew 
England in 1635 from Charington, County Kent, England, 
and settled first in Charlestown, Mass., but removed to New 
Haven at its first settlement, and assented to the original 
compact of government in 1639.* In 1643, he had a family 
of two persons, an estate of £40, and about twenty-three 
acres of land, seven of which were in the first division. He 
was a carpenter by trade and was probably solicited to join 
the New Haven company. " He was useful and trustworthy 
in his calling. In building the first meeting house, and in 
the repairs which were made on it from time to time, his 

advice was always sought In the latter part of his 

life he had accumulated some property, and he was employed 
as an agent for managing property by several who had re- 
moved from New Haven." [Neiv Haven Historical Society 
Collections, I: 40.] 

Jarvis Boykin was elected Townsman in 1651, the first 
year when such were chosen ; and is successively called 
" Corporal " and " Sergeant " in the records, titles received

in military service in 1654. Sergeant Boykin, in 1658, 
bought the so-called " Cutler Lot," corner of Church and 
Chapel streets, and lived there till his death. This occurred 
in January, 1660. The inventory of his estate, taken 
January 23, 1660, amounted to £173 2s. 2d. [New Haven

The Christian name of the wife of Jarvis Boykin was 
ISxiBEL, and her family name is unknown. It is thought 
that they were married in England. She died in 1673, the 
inventory of her estate being taken in January of that year. 
It amounted to £216 14s. 2d., including the homestead valued 
at £50. In her will she mentions her son, Nathaniel, and 
daughters, Sarah Boykin and Denison. To the latter she 
bequeathed " one pewter platter," and to her children one-half 
of some goods that may be sent to her from England, the 
other half to be divided between Nathaniel and Sarah. [New

1656; graduated in 1660; studied theology, and was 
ordained pastor of the Congregational church in Middle- 
town, Conn., retaining this charge until his death. He had 
lands recorded there January 24, 1664, and he, " Mr. Sam" 
Collins " his brother, and others, " were p'"esented to stand 
for freemen " May 9, 1667. The church was gathered J^o- 
vember 4, 1668, and he was ordained its first minister. 

The General Court in 1681 granted Nathaniel Collins a 
" farm of two hundred acres," " for his good services in 
sundry Expeditions and Engagements against the Indian 
Enemy," and at the May Session in 1687, it was ordered to 
be laid out to his heirs. 

Cotton Mather, in speaking of the Rev. ISTathaniel Collins 
and his ministry, says : — " The church of Middletown upon 
Connecticut river was the golden candlestick from whence 
this excellent person illuminated more than the whole colony ; 
and all the qualities of most exemplary piety, extraordinary 
ingenuity, obliging affability, joined with the accomplish- 
ments of an extraordinary preacher did render him truly 
excellent." When he died " there were more wounds given 
to the whole colony of Connecticut .... than the 
body of Csesar did receive when he fell wounded in the 
Senate-House." 

Cotton Mather issued in 1685 " An Elegy on the much- 
to-be-deplored Death of that ITever-to-be-forgotten Person 
the Rev. Nathaniel Collins." 

Mr. Collins died in Middleto\TO, December 28 (21), 
1684. His estate was inventoried at £679 Is. 9d., and was

James Clarke signed the compact of government in 1639, 
and assented to the oath of fidelity in 1644. He is named in 
the census of 1641-1643, and then had four persons in his 
family, an estate of £50, and about 37 acres of land in various 
places. In 1648 he was late at the training and on the Sab- 
bath, and was reproved. His excuse was the sickness of his 
wife. Mr. Clarke does not seem to have been very fond of 
attendance at training, and on one occasion he was absent 
altogether. He died in 1688, in New Haven. His sons, 
James and Samuel, administered his estate.

The name of the first wife of James Clarke is unknown. 
She doubtless came with him from England, was living, and 
perhaps in ill health, in 1648, and died about 1660. He 
married, 2nd, October 17, 1661, Ann, the widow of John 
AVakefield, who had died in 1660 leaving three daughters. 
She died in 1695.

NATHANIEL DICKINSON, one of the early proprie- 
tors of Wethersfield, Conn., was the son of William and Sarah 
(Stacey) Dickinson, of Ely, Cambridge, England, where he 
was born in 1600. It is said that he embarked at Gravesend 



246 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

about 1630 for New England, and settled first at Watertown, 
Mass. He was, however, in Wethersfield as early as 1637, 
and recorded there, March 7, 1649, a homestead situated at 
the lower end of Broad street on the west side. Fourteen 
pieces of land are entered at this time. 

He was chosen the second Recorder, or Town Clerk, in 
1640, and held the office until 1659. From 1646 to 1656 he 
was Deputy to the General Court at nineteen sessions. He 
was also one of the first Townsmen of whom we have any 
record, holding this office from 1646 to 1656. On October 
16, 1642, he was a Juror of the Particular Court, and again 
in 1654, 1657, and 1658; Juror of "Quarter Courte " in 
1656, 1658; Juror of Court of Magistrates in 1658, and 
Grand Juror, 1650 and 1654. At a session of the General 
Court held May 21, 1653, Mr. Wells and he were appointed 
a committee for the town of Wethersfield to " press men into 
service " for the expedition against the Dutch, pursuant to 
the action of the United Colonies. In October, 1654, the 
same committee was chosen to secure soldiers for the cam- 
paign against the iSI^arraganset Indians. 

When the religious controversies which had so long 
divided the people of Wethersfield into opposing factions 
reached a climax in 1659, Nathaniel Dickinson was one of 
those present at a meeting held in Hartford, at Goodman 
Ward's house, in April, and agreed with those assembled to 
leave Connecticut and seek a more congenial home in Massa- 
chusetts. Accordingly, when, during the same year, the 
migration to Hadley was commenced, Mr. Dickinson became 
a leading spirit in the movement. He, with many others 
who were unwilling to submit to certain restrictions which 
the church wished to impose, left Wethersfield, with their

families, and were among the founders of the new town. He 
erected a house in the extreme southeast end of the village, 
on land received in the first allotment, and was made a free- 
man in 1661. 

At Hadley, as at Wethersfield, Nathaniel Dickinson was 
one of the leading men. He was chosen its first Recorder, 
and was one of the first Deacons of the church. He was one 
of the committee of seven chosen in town-meeting to build the 
first meeting-house in Hadley. When the Hopkins Fund was 
established " for the breeding up of hopeful youths in a way 
of learning, both at the grammar School and College," he 
was one of the five " able and pious men " chosen by the town 
to take charge of the bequest. 

Nathaniel Dickinson, toward the end of his life, resided 
for a few years in Hatfield, but returned to his old home in 
Hadley, where he died June 16, 1676.

The wife of Nathaniel Dickinson was ANN GULL,

six others in an attempt to rescue a garrison at Squakheag 
(JSTorthfield), September 5, 1675, was attacked by a great 
number of Indians from a swamp, and lost his life in the 
struggle. Nehemiah, another son, fought in the battle of 
Turner's Falls, May 19, 1676, and his brother, John, was a 
sergeant in the same fight. The youngest son, Azariah, was 
slain by the Indians, August 25, 1675, in an engagement 
which took place near Hadley.

WILLIAM BEARDSLEY, one of the first settlers and 
an original proprietor of Stratford, Conn., came to New 
England in 1635, embarking at London in April of that 
year with his family in the ship " Planter."* The family 



* Autliorities on William Beardsley and his family are as follows:

tory of latratford, pp. 1130-1142.

tradition given by Hinman was that he came from Strat- 
ford-on-Avon, Warwickshire, England, but Orcutt in his 
History of Stratford and other authorities state that he 
emigi'ated with Rev. Adam Blakeman from St. Albans, 
Hertfordshire, England. He went first to Hadley, Mass., 
and was enrolled as a freeman December 7, 1636. In 1638 
he went to Hartford and in the spring of 1639 became a 
settler at Stratford. 

William Beardsley shared in the original distribution 
of land, in Stratford, his home lot being on the east side of 
Elm street near the meeting house. In the affairs of the 
town he was soon recognized as a leader. He is described 
as " a man of worth and substance." In 1645 he was one 
of the two Deputies to the General Court and served in that 
honorable ofiice for seven years. When preparations were 
being made in 1648 for waging war with the Dutch, he was 
chosen with Mr. Ludlow and Mr. Hull " to take care for 
preparing the soulgers in the two (seaside) townes." Again 
in 1651 Andrew Wade, George Hull, and William Beardsley 
were " propounded for assistants to joine with the magistrates 
for the execution of justice in the Townes by the seaside." 
He also served in 1653 in determining the boundaries between 
Eairfield and ISTorwalk. 

He died in Stratford in 1660. His will was dated 
September 28th of that year and his inventory was taken 
February 13, 1660-61. It amounted to £333 15s. 8d. He 
mentioned in his will sons John, Joseph, Samuel, and Daniel, 
and his " daughters that are now married," and he had other 
younger children.

The christian name of William Beardsley's wife was 
MAKY or MAHIA, and her family name has not been 
ascertained. At the time of their emigration he was aged 
30, his wife 26, and they had a daughter Mary aged 4, and 
sons John and Joseph aged 2 and 6 months respectively. 
She was bom therefore in 1609.

soldier in the Pequot War in 1637, and may have been living 
in Hartford at that time. His homestead was on the " road 
to the Neck " now "Windsor street. He removed to Farming- 
ton with the settlers in 1641, and his house stood near what 
is sometimes called Diamond Glen Brook with the mountains

THOMAS WRIGHT, one of the early settlers of

there November 19, 1610. Some say he was descended from 
John Wright, Bishop of Bristol, Winchester, and Lichfield, 
and was a cousin of Mr. Nathaniel Wright of London, one 
of the assistants of the first General Court of Massachusetts 
before the government was transferred to Boston. Others 
declare that he was the son of John Wright of Brook Hall, a 
great-grandson of John Wright, Lord of Kelvedon Manor. 
It is also said he was at Swamscott, now Exeter, in 1629

being one of the company of Colonel John Wheelwright, 
as appears from a deed given to them by the Indian Saga- 
mores, and that he was admitted a freeman at Exeter in 
1640. Stiles in his History of Wethersfield says he came 
first probably to Watertown. He appeared at Wethers- 
field, Conn., about 1640, a house lot being recorded to him 
February 11, 1640-41, and he was one of the jurors at a 
Particular Court in Hartford September 4, 1643. He held 
the office of Townsman in 1658-9 and was for many years 
a deacon in the church. 

The earliest homestead of Thomas Wright recorded was 
on the west side of High street. He was a prominent land 
owner, and obtained by purchase nearly all of the Great 
Island, since known as " Wright's Island," lying in the 
Connecticut River between the two great natural divisions 
of the original township. 

He died in April, 16Y0, his will being dated the 21st 
of that month and his inventory, amoimting to £101 15s., 
being taken the 29th. He confirmed by will a division of 
his land previously made among his sons, and made provi- 
sion for his wife Margaret.

The name of the first wife of Thomas Wright, who came 
with him to Wethersfield is unknown. He married, 2nd, 
Margaret Elson, widow of John Elson or Elsen who had 
died in 1648. She died in 1671. Her will dated January 
19, 16Y0, mentions William and Sarah Hilier, children 
of her son Job Hilier, whose three other children are to 
have a portion, Margaret Wanton, daughter of the wife of 
her son Benjamin Hilier and the wife of Thomas Wright 
her son. Possibly her first husband was Hugh Hilliard or

JOHN STODDAED, an early settler of Wethersfield, 
Conn., recorded his lands there, June 18, 1645.* He was 
l)orn in England about 1620. His homestead at Wethers- 
field was on the south corner of High and Fort streets, and 
is described as " One piece whereon his house standeth con. 
three acres more or less. The ends abut against High street 
east & the lands of John Plum west; the sides abut against 
Fort street north & the house-lot of John Sadler south." 
[Wethersfield Land Records, I: 91.] It had formerly 
belonged to Richard Westcott. He had been in Wethersfield 
some years prior to this, for in the Colonial Records we find 
that he was a Juror as early as March 2, 1642-3, and in 
April of the same year he was plaintiff in a suit against

John Plum for trespass. Hinman gives him the title of 
Sergeant, and places him in Wethersfleld in 1639. 

John Stoddard, in 1660, was the proprietor of the 
Chester Grist Mill in Wethersfield, perhaps having owned 
it since the death of Leonard Chester, in 1648, At a tovTn 
meeting, held October 25, 1660, the tovni bought this mill, 
and agi*eed to pay its owner " the full and just sum of 27 
pounds." In December of the following year " John Stood- 
durd," as he signs himself, states that " the towne hath 

Released his mill againe into his owen hands " 

with his consent. We learn also that " the towne " at this 
same meeting " granted for them selfes that if John Stad- 
dard Doe goe on to Repaire his mill then the fore said in- 
habetance will giue unto John Staddard Eury man one Days 
worke and also haue chouse at the same meeting Thomas 
Hurlbut and Hugh Wells to goe from house to house to 
p'"suad the Rest of the inhabbitance to doe the like." 
[Wethersfield Town Votes, I: Y2.] 

He died in Wethersfield in December 1664, and the 
inventory of his estate amounted to £407 8s. which was 
distributed to his widow and six children, the oldest twenty- 
one and the youngest four years of age. [Manwaring's

JOSIAH GILBERT, of Wethersfield, is mentioned as 
a resident of that town as early as 1651.* In a controversy 
in 1684 and 1685 concerning the boundaries of the farm of 
John Hollister in South Glastonbury, Josiah Gilbert testi- 
fied that he lived on this farm as a tenant for twelve years, 
and his brothers John and Jonathan Gilbert were concerned 
with him some of these years. Sergeant John Kilbom testi- 
fied that about 1663 Josiah Gilbert and his brethren were

farmers for John Hollister. This period probably extended 
from 1651 to 1663. [Connecticut State Archives, Private 
Controversies, III: 128; N. E. Historical and Genealogical 
Register, IV: 228.] He had lands in Wethersfield at a 
later period and resided there. In 1668 he bought tAventy 
acres of Josiah Willard in the South Field, and in 1671, 
140 acres of Gershom Bulkeley at Dividend. He also drew 
lands in the allotments of 1670 and 1694. He was elected 
Constable in 1664, Townsman in 1665, and Surveyor in 
1667. He was chosen to collect the minister's rates in 1672. 
Little else is known of him, but there are reasons to believe 
that he was influential and respected in the community. 

Josiah Gilbert died in September, 1688. His estate was 
not settled for some years, but in that connection we have 
considerable light on his family and affairs. It appears that 
the value of his real estate amounted to £271 10s. 7d., and 
the total to £513 3s. Od. [Manwaring's Hartford Probate

The baptismal name of tlie first wife of Josiah Gilbert 
was ELIZABETH, but her surname before marriage is un- 
known. This marriage occurred probably about 1651. She 
died October 17, 1682, about fifty years of age. He married 
2nd, in January, 1687-8, Mary Harris, a daughter of Wil- 
liam Harris of Rowley, Mass., and sister of Hannah Harris, 
the wife of Francis Wliitmore of Middletown. She had 
married 1st, John Ward of Middletown, April 18, 1664, who 
died early in 1684. " An Agreement by and between Josiah 
Gilbert and Mary Ward, Widow, in the year of 1681," the 
date of which doubtless should be 1687, shows that she was 
to have the life use of certain lands, with " tow roomes in

of his barn and out housing, fold, yards and with all free- 
dom convenience Therein: as allso one-Third part of his 
orchard," and an annuity of forty shillings in case of his 
death. She doubtless occupied the home with the younger 
children until 1696, her husband having died intestate, and 
the estate being until then undivided. The heirs then 
asked for a division which was made according to law, the 
widow having her portion as in the marriage agreement with 
certain property which she had brought to him. She died 
in 1721, when a final distribution was made.

MATTHEW MARVIN, born in England about 1600, 
emigrated to New England in 1635, making the voyage in 
the ship " Increase," accompanied by his wife, Elizabeth, 
and five children. From the records in the office of the 
" Rolls Court," in London, it is learned that Matthew Mar- 
vin and his family were recorded to be transported to New 
England, April 15, 1635. He was then thirty-five years old ;

his wife, Elizabeth, was thirty-one; his daughter, Sarah, 
three years old. They came from Essex County. [Talcott's 
Notes on New York and New England Families.'] 

He became one of the first settlers of Hartford, Conn., 
and his home-lot, in 1639, was on what is now the corner of 
Front and Pleasant streets. In 1639, and in 1647, he was 
chosen Surveyor of Highways. On June 19, 1650, he signed 
the agreement for the planting of Norwalk, Conn., and he 
was among those settlers who received a deed of land from 
Runckinheage, February 15, 1651. He represented the new 
town in the General Court in 1654. His name appears in 
a table of " Estates of lands and accommodations " in 1655 
(which contains the earliest list of inhabitants), where his 
estate is rated at £314 Os. Od., and is the largest of any of 
the proprietors. His earliest house-lot in Norwalk, granted 
him by the town, contained four acres, and adjoined the 
meeting-house yard on the east side of the " Towns High- 
way." His wife, Elizabeth, died, and he married 2nd, Mrs. 
Alice Kellogg. He died in Norwalk in 1687.

JOSIAH, or JOSIAS CHURCHILL, born in England 
about 1615, was one of the early, but not among tlie first, 
settlers of Wetliersfield, Connecticut.* He is said to have 
come from Devonshire, England, in which county John 
Churchill, who became the Duke of Marlborough, was born 
in 1650. It is also said, as in the Boston Transcript of May 
21, 1902, that Josias, John, and William Churchill, the 
©migrants, were sons of Joseph Churchill of London. 

Josiah Churchill entered in the records of Wethersfield, 
April 28, 1641, his homestead on the east side of High 
street, just north of the road leading to the meadow. This 
land is described as follows: " One pece whereon his house 
standetli con: six acr^ more or less© Theands (the ends) 
abutt against the hie waie west & great mea: east. Thee 
sides against the wai© into the great mea : South & the house 
lott of John Jesiope North." He had probably arrived in 
Wethersfield a few years before the above date, and was liv- 
ing there in 1638, when he married. He sold his first home- 
stead in 1659, or before, and purchased one formerly belong- 
ing to Charles Taintor, where it is probable he afterwards 
lived. The Taintor homestead was on the west side of High 
street, the second lot north of Fort (now Prison) street, and 
a little south of his former home. In 1670, he drew eighteen 
acres of land in the Western Division, and in this section of 
the town many of his descendants dwelt.

cut, pp. 590-596; Goodwin's Foote Genealogy, pp. 268flF.; Stiles's His- 
tory of Wethersfield, II: 219ff. 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 2G3 

Josiali Churcliill held several offices in his town. He 
was Surveyor in 1665 and later; Constable in 1656 and 
1669; Surveyor of Highways in 1672. He often served as 
Juror in the several courts between June, 1643, and March, 
1675. 

He died January 1, 1686-7, possessed of an estate in- 
ventoried at £618 12s. 6d. At this time, he owned two home- 
lots and one hundred and ten acres of land. His vnll, which 
was dated November 17, 1683, mentions his wife, Elizabeth, 
sons and daughters. His son, Benjamin, received the old 
homestead at the death of his mother. " A great chist," 
marked J. C, descended to his son, Joseph. 

329. 

The wife of Josiah Churchill was ELIZABETH 
FOOTE, daughter of I^athaniel Foote (m. 458) and Eliza- 
beth Deming (No. 459), who was born in England about 
1616. Their marriage occurred in 1638, and probably in 
Wethersfield. She died there September 8, 1700, aged about 
84 years.

RICHAED TEE AT, son of Eobert Treat (Trott, Tratt, 
Tratte, Trat, Tret), was born in 1584, in Pitminster, Somer- 
set County, England, and was baptized August 28th of that 
year.* A brass tablet in the ancient church of South 
Trendle, parish of Trull, Pitminster, bears the following in- 
scription : " In Memory of /Eichard Treat, alias Ttott, 
Baptised in this Church, Aug. 28, 1584, who emigrated to 
New England with his family, in 1637, and was created one 
of the Patentees of the Charter of the Colony of Connecticut 
by King Charles II, in 1662. His son, Eobert Treat, was 
baptized February 25th, 1624, and was Deputy Governor 
and Governor of the Colony for 30 years. This brass was 
erected in 1902 by their descendant, John Harvey Treat of 
America." On April 27, 1615, he married in Pitminster, 
ALICE GAYLAED, baptized May 10, 1594, daughter of 
Hugh Gaylard. Mr. Treat came to New England in 1637, 
and it is supposed, settled in Wethersfield, Conn., soon after 
arriving. In 1641, his first recorded homestead was on the 
west side of Broad street, at the extreme northern end. This 
homestead, which he bought of Thurston Eayner, abutted on 
Broad street, S. E. ; a " Green or Common," IsT. W. ; home- 
lot of Samuel Hubbard, S. W. ; Short street (now Marsh 
Avenue), N. E. A few years later he bought the Matthew 
Mitchell homestead on Broad street, the second lot north of 
Fletcher's Lane. 

Mr. Treat was one of the prominent men of the Colony. 
He was chosen Deputy from his town in April, 1644, and 
annually for the next four years. He was Assistant or Mag-

istrate eight times from March, 1657 to 1665. In 1657, he 
was Constable, and Townsman in 1660, and probably earlier. 
He and his son-in-law, Mr. John Deming, were original pa- 
tentees named in the Charter granted April 23, 1662. His 
son. Major Kobert Treat, of Milford, was Governor of Con- 
necticut as above stated. 

Richard Treat died between Oct., 1669, and the follow- 
ing March. His widow survived him, but the date of her 
death has not been found. In his will, dated February 13, 
1668, he names his wife Alice, sons Richard, Robert, and 
James, his sons-in-law, Matthew Campfield, and John Dem- 
ing, and daughters Honor and Joanna. The inventory of 
his estate, which was exhibited March 3, 1669-70, amounted 
to £69 10s. 8d.

E^^GLISH ANCESTRY OF RICHARD TREAT. 

I. 

John Trott, of Staplegrove near Taunton, was perhaps 
the grandfather of Richard Trott, from whom the line of 
descent can be traced witliout any difficulty. His name 
occurs in the calendar of the Taunton Manor Rolls, 1458- 
1479. He was probably the father of 

11. 

William Trott, whose name occurs in these calendars as 
of the same parish and hundred of Staplegrove, 1503, 1504, 
and 1510. He had six children. 

III. 

Richard Trott died about 1571; married Joanna (per- 
haps the Joanna Trott buried in Otterford, August 14, 
1577). In the Taunton Manor Calendar we find his name 
in Staplegrove, 1510; Poundisford, 1534; and Otterford, 
1527 and 1540. He had five children. 

IV. 

Robert Trott baptized probably in Trendle, parish of 
Pitminster; buried February 16, 1599, in Pitminster; mar- 
ried Honora, who was buried September 17, 1627, in Pit- 
minster. He had six children. 

V. 

Richard Treat of Wethersfield. 

238. 

JOHN KIRBY, the emigrant ancestor of this family, 
came to New England in the ship " Hopewell," Captain 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 267 

Babb, Master, which sailed from London September 11, 
1635.* He is recorded in the list of passengers as " Jo : 
Kerbie aged 12 years," and is the only person of that name 
in the list. From this fact it is inferred that he was in the 
care of some older person to be brought to friends in New 
England. Naturally, such person would be the one recorded 
just before him in the list, who was William Wood, with his 
wife and children, the author, probably, of " New England's 
Prospect." He was first an inhabitant of Lynn, and after- 
wards removed to Sandwich, being accompanied by Richard 
Kirby, later a well-known resident of the latter town. It is 
thought, therefore, that Richard Kirby was the brother, or 
a relative, of the boy, John Kirby, and that William Wood 
brought him over from England in pursuance of this plan. 
In this case, John Kirby spent his youth in Sandwich, Mass. 

Among those in Plymouth between the ages of sixteen and 
sixty " able to bear arms," in 1643, is John Kirby. He re- 
moved shortly afterward to Hartford, Connecticut, and in 
April, 1645, he and Seth Grant were engaged to herd the 
cattle of that town that were daily driven to the " cow pas- 
ture." In 1647 he removed to Wethersfield, the ear-mark of 
his stock being there recorded that year. Here he lived until 
1652, or thereabouts, when he went to Middletown, where he 
spent the remainder of his life. 

It is thought by some that John Kirby had a brother, 
Joseph Kirby, who was early a resident of Hartford, that 
this was the reason for his coming thither from Plymouth,

New England, Dwight; Sage Genealogy, pp. 11 and 71; Coe's Hall 
Memoranda, pp. 229-231; Treat's Genealogy of the Treat Family, p.

Wethersfield, II: 473if.

and that his brother, Joseph, through a son, John, and a 
grandson, Eoger, was the ancestor of the Kirbys afterwards 
of Middlebiiry, Conn. If so, Joseph Kirbj seems to have left 
no trace behind him, and it is in any case certain that the 
placing of Sarah Deming in this family is an error. 

John Kirby settled in that part of Middletown afterwards 
set off as Cromwell. His lands there were recorded January 
10, 1655. They were located in the western part of Crom- 
well, " in the bend of the Mattabesett Kiver where it turns 
to the southeast." He became the owner of considerable land, 
including a tract of one hundred and thirty acres on the 
east side of Connecticut river, which was afterwards divided 
among the heirs of his daughter, Mary Buck, Sarah, the wife 
of Benjamin Churchill, being one. John Kirby was made 
a freeman in 1658, and was a man of influence in the section 
where he lived. 

The death of John Kirby occurred in 167Y. His inven- 
tory, amounting to £552 5s. lOd., was taken on the 27th of 
April, and his will was dated the 6th of April. In it he 
bequeathed the use of all his estate to his wife, during her 
life, making provision that his only son, Joseph, and his 
eldest daughter, Mary Buck, should each receive a double 
portion, and that whoever of his children or children's chil- 
dren should receive his 300 acres west of the Connecticut 
river and his 200 acres in " pipe Stave Swamp," " they shall 
not at any time be sold out of the blood, but in case any of my 
children or their children see cause to Sell any part 
it shall be only from one to another of them, that so these 
two parcells of land may pertain to some of my children 
or children's children to the end of the world." The son- 
in-law of John Kirby, Emanuel Buck, was appointed one of 



EIGHTH GENERATION, 269 

the executors. [Manwaring's Hartford Probate Records, I : 

211-215.] 

339. 

The baptismal name of the wife of John Kirby was Eliz- 
abeth, and it is thought, with good reason, as stated in the 
Kirhy Genealogy, that her maiden name was ELIZABETH 
HIISTDS, a niece of Sarah Hinds Cheplin, wife of Clement 
Cheplin, of Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk County, England, 
and an early settler in Wethersfield. The evidence of this 
is a letter written by Sarah Cheplin of Bury St. Edmunds, 
January 2, 1661, to " Cousin John Kirby," and sent by 
William Goodrich of the same place, in which the writer 
says, " Your wifes father is yet alive and in good health." 
Sarah Cheplin signs herself, " kinsman." If this was her 
name, she was doubtless born in Bury St. Edmunds, and ac- 
companied her aunt to IsTew England. She was married 
probably in 1643 or 1644, soon after John Kirby's arrival 
in Hartford. 

Elizabeth Kirby married, 2nd, October 27, 1681 ( ?), 
Abraham Randall (Eandolph) of Windsor, Conn. She is 
so named in several deeds of land in Middletown, being called 
in a deed dated October 25, 1680, "Elizabeth Randall now 
of Windsor," and the same in 1684 and 1688. In a deed of 
April 18, 1697, she is called " Elizabeth Randolph now of 
Wethersfield sometime wife to and Relict of John Kerby of 
Middletown." [Middletown Land Records, I: 26, 61, 77, 
91, 133; II: 62.] Abraham Randall's first wife was Mary 
Ware, whom he married December 8, 1640. She died July 
8, 1677. He died August 21, 1690, and his widow removed 
to Wethersfield to live, where her death occurred probably 
in March, 1704-5, as at that time Joseph Kirby was appointed 
administrator to settle his father's estate.

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF JOHN KIRBY. 

The clue to the English ancestry of John Kirby is found 
in the fact that he deeded to Richard Lord of Hartford, Sep- 
tember 3, 1654, property consisting of a house and land sit- 
uated within the bounds of Rowington, Warwickshire, Eng- 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 271 

land. This town is near Kenilworth, and about five miles 
from the famous Warwick Castle. The inscription on the 
tombstone of Abraham Kirby of Middlebury, erected about 
1796, after his death, also states that " his grandfather Joseph 
Kirbj came from Warwickshire, England," 

The name Kirby is said to have had a Danish origin, 
being originally Kirkby and derived from " Kirke " meaning 
" church," and " bye " a " dwelling." The family of Kirkby 
is known in the history of Warwickshire, and " the baptism 
of Michael Kirby, son of Humphrey, Sept. 22, 1622, found 
in one of the recovered sheets of the lost register of St. Mary's 
Church in Warwick, shows there were Kirbys living in the 
vicinity in the early part of the seventeenth century." The 
daughter of Sir John Kirkby, Matilda, was the wife of 
William Beauchamp, first Earl of Warwick. The unusual 
provision in the will of John Kirby of Middletown undoubt- 
edly indicated some pride of ancestry and belief in English 
customs by which real estate was retained in the family from 
generation to generation. 

The Kirhy Genealogy, which gives the above facts, has 
the following paragraph : " The first Baron Kirkby was Ivo 
Taillebois who came with the Conqueror. He died without 
male issue and the barony passed to his brother Gerard's 
family. In 1272, John Kirkby was made Keeper of the 
Great Seal and soon afterward Bishop of Ely. In 1322 an- 
other John Kirkby (also written Kirby) was created Bishop 
of Carlisle. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries there 
were several families of Kirkbys and Kirbys living in vari- 
ous parts of England, as is shown by the Visitations of 
Essex, Leicestershire, Yorkshire, etc., which have recently 
been published by the Harleian Society from the original 



272 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

manuscripts kept in the British Museum. The Kirby names 
usually found in these Visitations are Richard, Roger, Wil- 
liam, and John — all Norman names." 

It seems from a letter printed in the above authority that 
Joseph Kirby of Middletown, the son of John, made an at- 
tempt through an attorney in Warwick, Thomas Bannister, 
to recover certain estates in Rowington. This was in 1Y08, 
and from this correspondence it appears that the mother of 
John Kirby was a Margaret White.

of her first husband. With him at Wethersfield were his two 
sons, Rev. John Russell and Philip Russell, children by his 
first marriage. In April, 1659, when, in consequence of 
religious difficulties, a considerable portion of the towns- 
people emigrated to Hadley, Mass., Mr. Russell joined the 
party, and his son. Rev. John, was installed as their pastor. 
Mr. Russell died at Hadley, May 8, 1680, aged 85 years. 
His widow, Dorothy, died at Hadley in 1694. 

EISTGLISH Aiq"CESTRY OF JOHN RUSSELL. 

The claim is made that this family was connected with 
the English family of the same name in the line of the House 
of Bedford. It rests on family tradition, the identity of the 
arms extant in one branch of the family, excepting the crest, 
with those of the Earl of Bedford, and a supposed relation- 
ship between the coming of this family to !N'ew England and 
the fact that Catharine Russell, daughter of the fourth Earl 
of Bedford, was the wife of Robert Greville, second Lord 
Brooke, who was associated with Colonel Eenwick in the 
founding of Saybrook. If this fact should be established by 
documentary evidence, the ancestry of the Russell family 
could be traced back many centuries. [Stiles's History of 
Wethersfield, U: 593.]

STEPHEN TERRY, son of John Terry and Mary 
White, and born August 25, 1608, in Stockton, Wiltshire, 
England, came to New England in 1630, in the " Mary and

mitted a freeman May 18, 1631. His name occurs in a list 

of the first twenty-four freemen of that town. He removed

to Windsor, Conn., and became one of its early settlers, his 
first house being on the east side of the " common road," 
or Main street. 

He was several times elected a member of the Grand 
Jury, and frequently was chosen to serve on local commit- 
tees. His name appears in the list of " troopers under Cap- 
tain John Mason," March 11, 1G57-8, the first Connecticut 
cavalry. 

In 1659 Stephen Terry became one of the founders of 
Hadley, Mass., and was elected the first Constable there. 
Later, he was chosen one of the Selectmen. He had married 
in Dorchester, his first wife, whose maiden name is unknown. 
She died in Windsor in June, 1647. He died in Hadley, 
Sept., 1668, leaving a widow, Elizabeth, who survived him 
about fifteen years.

Stephen Terry, the emigrant, was the son of Rev. John 
Terry, vicar of Stockton, who was born in Long Sutton, 
Hampshire, England, in 1555, and died May 10, 1625. He 
was the son of Stephen Terry who died in 1606. The wife 
of Rev. John Terry was Mary, born about 1570, daughter 
of John White, Gent., of Stanton, St. John, Oxfordshire,

White, rector of Dorchester, and perhaps a granddaughter 
of Robert White. She died a widow in 1637, and her will 
is extant dated Oct. 6, 1637. In " The English Founders 
of The Terry Family/' by H. K. Terry, it is claimed that 
Stephen Terry was the son of John Terry, " a citizen and 
goldsmith " of London, who was buried May 23, 1637. See

THOMAS GRAVES, born in England about 1585, 
came to Kew England with his wife and five children before 
1645, at which time he appears in Hartford, Conn., owning 
a homestead there.* He was relieved from military duty 
because of his age, December 1, 1645, as is shown from the 
following extract of that date from the Colonial records: — 
" Thos : Graues is freed fro trayneing, watching and ward- 
mg." 

In Hartford, Thomas Graves had several tracts of land, 
one of them being that " whereon his house standeth." He 
was not, however, active in town affairs, and the names of his 
sons only are mentioned. Isaac was in Hartford and John 
and Nathaniel in Wethersfield. 

In 1661, although then about seventy-six years old, 
Thomas Graves removed to Hatfield, Mass., with his sons, 
Isaac and John, where he died in November of the year fol- 
lowing. His widow, Sarah, died in Hadley, December 17, 
1666.

JOHlSr WILCOX was one of the original settlers at 
Hartford, Connecticut.* This family is said to have been 
of Saxon origin and to have come from Bury St. Edmunds, 
England. His home lot of thirteen acres in 1640 was located 
on what is now West Bushnell Park. In his will he calls 
himself a " payle maker." He filled several minor offices 
in the town and was Townsman in 1650. 

John Wilcox died in 1651, on the 1st of October. The 
inventory of his estate amounted to £391 3s. Od. In his 
will he makes provision for his wife, giving her his " ould 
howse to dwell in " during the time of her life, for his son 
John and daughters Ann Hall and Sarah Bidwell. To the 
latter he makes the following bequest. " I give to my daugh- 
ter Sarah Biddell my mare and two working stears, Allso a 
carte & a plowe with a Share and Coulter & a plowe eare, 
provided that my wife may have the mare for her owne use 
to ride either to Windsor, to Wethersfield, or to Hartford, 
or to the Sermon, for the space of two years, and to this 
end I give my wife my pannell and Bridle. Allso it is my 
will that my sonn Willcock shall provide Stover for the 
wintering of the two Stears and the mare given to Sarah 
Biddell." To each of John Biddell's children he bequeathed 
a share of forty pounds. He had a servant Samuel and a

The Christian name of the wife of John "Wilcox was 
MARY, but her family name is unknown. She is believed 
to have come with him and three children from England. 
At the time of her husband's death she was probably in 
advanced life. She was unable " on account of weakness " 
to occupy the old house in 1667 and the court ordered the 
son John Wilcox " to pay to his mother £6 a year " instead. 
She died in 1668, her inventory being taken January 1, 
1668-9 and amounting to £40 Os. 4d. In her will dated 
October 4, 1666, she mentions her daughter Ann Hall, a 
cousin Sarah Long, and bequeaths most of her estate to her 
son-in-law, John Bidwell, with whom she probably spent 
her last days. [Manwaring's Hartford Probate Records,

RICHAED BUTLER, the emigrant ancestor of this 
family, settled in Cambridge, Mass., as early as 1633, and 
was then a member of the church. It is thought that he 
came to New England from Braintree, Essex County, Eng- 
land. He was made a freeman at Cambridge, May 14, 1634. 
Within a few years he removed to Hartford, Conn., perhaps 
coming with Mr. Hooker and his company at its settlement 
in 1636. He received sixteen acres of land in the first 
division of Hartford, in 1639. His house lot was " on the 
corner where the road from George Steele's to the South 
Meadow intersected the road from the Mill to the Country." 
[Memorial History of Hartford County, I: 233; Bigelow 
Genealogy, p. 18.] 

Deacon Butler was a man of influence in the town's 
affairs, holding the office of Townsman or Selectman in 1649, 
1654, and 1658; and he was one of "a committee for ye 
milne" in 1660. From 1656 to 1660, he was a Deputy 
from Hartford to the General Court, and he was often a 
Juror between 1643 and 1662. He was a Deacon of the 
First Church in Hartford for many years and until his 
death. 

The name of Richard Butler's first wife is unknown, 
but he married 2nd, according to Hinman, Elizabeth 
Bigelow about 1642. He died August 6, 1684, leaving an 
estate of £564 15s. His wife, Elizabeth, died September 
11, 1691.

JOHJST BUEWELL was the original emigrant of this 
family, and an early settler at Milford.* He came from Eng- 
land and it is said that he was born at Sutton, Suffolk 
County, October 5, 1602, being the son of Thomas Burwell 
of Sutton. The church records of Milford in recording his 
admission to the church July 4, 1641, have the entry " John 
Burwell of Hertfordshire, hus"^ to Alice," with the record 
of his death following August 47, 1649. It is possible that 
he was born in Sutton, but came to New England from some 
to-\vn in Hertfordshire, where he had resided. His home 
lot in Milford consisted of two acres and twenty poles and 
was located between that of George Clark, Jun., and that of 
Henry Botsford. He also had one acre in " Westfield Creek 
Shott," 6 acres in " Poconock Point Shott," and 7 acres in 
" Westfield the Fence Shott." Probably some of the lands 
that are recorded later to John Burwell were those of his 
son. [Milford Land Kecords, I: 79, 82, 87-89, 92, 98.] 
John Burwell died as above stated in Milford in 1649.

John Burwell married, before his emigration from Eng- 
land, ALICE, whose surname is unknown. After the death 
of her husband she married in 1650, Joseph Peck of !N^ew 
Haven and Milford. Her son Lieutenant Samuel Burwell 
of Milford received land later " by way of division to Joseph 
Peck his father-in-law." [Milford Land Records, I: 133.] 
She is said to have had several children by this marriage, one 
of whom was Joseph Peck, born in 1653, who married Mary, 
the daughter of Nicholas Camp, 2nd. Alice Peck died in 
Milford, December 19, 1666. Mr, Peck married again a

WILLIAM BUNNELL was one of the early settlers 
of the New Haven Colony, though little more is known of 
him. His daughter, Mary, was born in New Haven, May 
4, 1650, and bis son, Ebenezer, August 28, 1653. Benjamin 
was doubtless older and probably by some years. His other 
children are said to have been Nathaniel and Lydia. The 
latter married Erancis Erench of Derby, who died February 
14, 1696-7, and she died April 7, 1708. William Bunnell 
died before 1669.

The wife of William Bunnell was ANN WILMOT, 
daughter of Benjamin Wilmot (No. 634). She is named in 
the will of her father as " Ann, wife of William Bunnell," 
she being dead at the time, August 7, 1669, and having four 
children living.

PETER MALLORY was an early settler in New

England. It has been said that " the Mallory family were 
early at Papworth, in Cambridgeshire. Peter Mallory, 
second son of Anthony, was of Shelton, County Bedford, 
before 1600." We know of no proof of the connection of 
Peter Mallory of 'New Haven with the families of that 
name in England. He took the oath of fidelity in New 
Haven, August 5, 1644. He seems then to have been a 
single man and to have married in 1648. The name of his 
wife is unknown. Savage has given the following list of

Yorkshire, England, and baptized there December 20, 1584. 
He was the son of Thomas Lothrop of Cherry Burton who 
had twenty-two children, and grandson of John Lowthorpe 
of Lowthorpe, Yorkshire, England. 

In 1601 John Lothrop entered Queens College, Cam- 
bridge, and there spent eight years, receiving his degree as 
A.B. in 1605 and A.M. in 1609. After his graduation from 
the University, he was a clergyman of the Established Church, 
and was settled for some time over the parish of Edgerton, 
Kent. While there his views changed and he was shortly 
afterwards invited to succeed Rev. Henry Jacob as pastor 
of the Separatist church at Southwark, London. This was 
about 1625. 

In 1632 he and many of his flock were apprehended by 
Archbishop Laud and imprisoned. After nearly two years 
of such confinement, during which his wife died, he was 
released on his promise to go into exile. He embarked for 
Boston in 1634, in the ship " Griffin," having as a fellow 
passenger the celebrated Anne Hutchinson, and on his arrival 
settled at Scituate with many of his flock who had accom- 
panied him. He removed to Barnstable with a part of his 
church in 1639, and there ministered until his death N^ovem- 
ber 8, 1653. 

Tlie following tribute is paid to Rev. John Lothrop in 
Morton's New England Memorial: "He was a man of a 
humble and broken heart and spirit, lively in dispensation 
of the word of God ; studious of peace, furnished with Godly 
contentment, willing to spend and to be spent for the cause 
of the Church of Christ." In his will, dated August 10, 
1653, he makes provision for his wife and mentions his chil- 
dren, Thomas, Benjamin, John, Jane, and Barbara. Beside

these he had Samuel and Joseph, both born in England. 

Among the early divines of ISTew England none had led a 

more devoted life or had suffered greater hardships for his 

religion.

John Lothrop was twice married. His first wife is said 
to have been HA]^1TAH HOWSE, of Eastwell, Kent 
County, England, their marriage license having been issued 
in Canterbury, October 10, 1610. She died in England 
about 1633. She was the mother of the eight older children. 
He probably married his second wife in Scituate, and by her 
had other children. Her first name was Ann, and she died in 
Barnstable, February 25, 1688.

JACOB WATERHOUSE was the emigrant ancestor 
of this family.* The following statement has been made 
concerning his ancestry: "Jacob, born 1618, appears to 
have been a son of Abraham, born 1586 ; a son of John Water- 
house, of N"ewhouse; son of John of Newhouse, died July 
1545 ; son of John of l^ewhouse, the eldest son of Richard, 
died January 2, 1539, (who) married Agnes, daughter of 
John Coley-Hale, buried October 30, 1542, in Halifax 
Church, where a monument of brass, erected to her memory, 
remains." [New York Mail and Express, June 25, 1898.]

If this is true, Jacob Waterhouse was of a good English 
family in Yorkshire. 

He first appears in New England at Wethersfield and 
may have come from Watertown or some other Massachusetts 
town to that place. In 1639 he had a house lot in Wethers- 
field of two and one-half acres, located on Sandy Lane, 
extending north to Fort, now Prison street. He is said to 
have been a soldier in the Pequot War in 1637, and it is 
possible that he was one of the twenty-six men who went 
from Wethersfield in the expedition against the Indians at 
that time. Jacob Waterhouse removed to ISTew London in 
1645, and became one of the founders of that town. There 
he was chosen " overseer of the wears " in 1649. He had 
a home-lot of six acres which he received the same year. 
He is probably the person referred to in the will of Peter 
Collins of ISTew London, in 1655, who was to have his land 
" in ye Neck." As he was released from military duty in 
1665, he was then probably an old man and he died in 1676. 
His will was offered for probate in September of that year.

father's landed estate in 1673. He was a freeman there in 
1669 and the only John Clark of Saybrook at that date, 
his father being named as in Milford. In 1673 he repre- 
sented the town of Saybrook in a case before the General 
Court and probably would have attained other honors had 
he lived. He died in Saybrook, September 21, 1677, " being 
killed by a cart overturned upon him."

The wife of John Clark was REBECCA PORTER, 
daughter of John Porter (ISTo. 742) and Anna White (No. 
743), who was baptized at Eelsted, Essex County, England, 
September 16, 1630, and was married October 16, 1650. 
After the death of John Clark, she married a Spencer. 
Her death is recorded as follows : " Rebekah Spencer, 
sometime the wife of John Clark, departed this life 9 Jan- 
uary, 1682."

HENRY WOLCOTT, son of Henry Wolcott (No. 752) 
and Elizabeth Saunders, was born in England, January 21, 
1610-11, came to New England with his parents, and was 
admitted a freeman in Boston, April 1, 1634, being then a 
member of the Dorchester church. He removed with that 
company to Windsor in 1636, and there spent the remainder 
of his life. 

Mr. Wolcott was a prominent importing merchant, con- 
ducting a large and successful business. In his town and 
in the Colony, he was a citizen of prominence and influence. 
In 1660, he was Deputy to the General Court, and Magis- 
trate in 1662, and thereafter until his death. He was one 
of the patentees mentioned in the Charter, in 1662. He 
died in Windsor, July 12, 1680.

SAMUEL APPLETON, son of Samuel Appleton (No. 
756) and Judith Everard (No. 757), was baptized in 
Waldingfield, Suffolk County, England, February 2, 1624-5, 
and died in Ipswich, Mass., May 15, 1696.* Major Samuel 
Appleton, both in civil and military affairs, was a man of 
prominence in the Colony. He was Townsman in 1662, 
Deputy from Ipswich to the General Court in 1668, 1669- 
1671, 1673, 1675, 1676-1681 (except 1678), Assistant 
or Magistrate, 1682-1686, and a member of the first council 
under the charter of William and Mary in 1692. He was 
a Justice of the Quarterly and General Sessions Courts, 
etc. During the progress of King Philip's War in 1675, 
he was commissioned Captain of a company of 100 men to 
proceed to the frontier towns on the Connecticut Eiver; 
and on October 4, of the above year, he was appointed Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the forces operating in that section of 
Massachusetts. By his " industry, skill and courage," says 
Hubbard, the narrator of the Indian wars, " those towns 
were preserved from running the same fate with the rest, 
wholly, or in part, so lately turned into ashes." On October 
19, an attack was made upon Hatfield by seven or eight 
hundred Indians, who were repulsed after a sharp contest. 
Major Appleton's sergeant fell mortally wounded by his 
side, and the brave commander himself narrowly escaped 
death. In December, with five hundred men under his

command, he served as Major in the expedition against the 
Narragansett Indians. A full account of his services in King 
Philip's War may be found in Bodge's " Soldiers in King 
Philip's War," pp. 142 to 164. 

During the rule of Sir Edmund Andros, Mr. Appleton 
was especially a mark of persecution because of his persistent 
refusal to submit to the arbitrary use of power exercised by 
the Governor-General. In September, 1687, a warrant was 
issued for his arrest, and in October he was brought before 
the Governor and his Council. Kefusing to give the required 
bond, he was ordered, November 30, to be imprisoned in the 
Boston Jail, where he was confined until March 7, 1688. 

Of Major Appleton, Mr. Felt, in his " History of Ips- 
wich," says : — " He was Representative to the General Court, 
Member of the Governor's Council and Judge. In 1675 he 
was ordered to keep 500 men for the defense of the frontier 

towns at the west against the Indians, etc Hi< 

diversified and complicated duties as warrior, legislator and 
judge, he ably and faithfully discharged." 

379. 

The first wife of Samuel Appleton was HANNAH 
PAINE, daughter of William Paine of Ipswich, Mass. (No. 
758), whom he married in Ipswich, April 2, 1651. She died 
about 1655, and he married, 2nd, December 8, 1656, Mary, 
daughter of John Oliver of Newbury, Mass. She died Feb- 
ruary 15, 1697.

EDWARD COLLINS, son of John and Abigail (Rose) 
Collins of London, and later of Brampton, England, removed 
to New England prior to 1636, settled in Cambridge, Mass., 
and was early a large landholder there. He was made a 
freeman May 13, 1640. On October 7, 1641, he was ap- 
pointed " Clerk of the Writs," with power " to grant sum- 
mons and attachments in Civil Actions." He was Represen- 
tative or Deputy to the General Court, 1654-1670. He was 
chosen a deacon of his church before April, 1649, as appears 
from the following extract from the Cambridge Town Rec- 
ords : " In lieu of his small farm within the town bounds, 
with some addition in respect of his place in the Deacon's 
office, it was agreed that he should have 500 acres." Mr. 
Collins " held many offices of public trust, and was active 
in both private and public affairs." [Collins Genealogy, 
1897.] 

He died in Charlestown, Mass., where he had spent the 
later years of his life, April 9, 1689, at the age of 86 years. 
His widow, MARTHA (No. 381), survived him. Mr. Paige 
thinks it probable that she is the person named in the man- 
uscript journal of the Rev. John Pike : " Mch. 22, 1699- 
1700, Grandmother Collins departed this life, being very 
aged, and many years shaken with the palsy, yet retained 
her understanding wonderfully well."

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF EDWARD COLLINS. 

John Collins, the father of the emigrant. Deacon Edward 
Collins, resided in London and in Brampton, Suffolk County, 
England, and died and was buried in the latter place. He 
married Abigail Rose, daughter of Thomas Rose, who was 
of Exmouth, Devonshire. She was buried in Braintree, 
Essex County. John Collins had a family of five children.

WILLIAM WHITING, the Hartford settler, was in- 
terested in New England as early as 1633, when, in conjunc- 
tion with the Lords Say and Brooke and George Wyllys, he 
purchased an interest in Piscataqua lands. He was one 
of the original proprietors of Hartford, Conn., and in 
1639 owned a homestead on the east side of the highway now 
known as Governor street. On March 20, 1639, the town 
granted Mr. Whiting and others " liberty to sett vpe a 
Mill vpon the litle River." [Hartford Town Votes.] He 
was chosen one of the committee to convene with the As- 



296 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

sistants for the first time in 1637, was Treasurer of the 
Colony from 1641 to 1647, and a Magistrate, 1642-1647. 
With Major John Mason and others, he was appointed, in 
1642, to erect fortifications, and to collect tribute of the 
Indians on Long Island and the Main. 

William Whiting was actively interested in trade and 
commerce and established trading houses on the Delaware 
River and at Westfield. " He seems," says Scaeva,* quoting 
Dr. Trumbull, " to have been relied on by the General Court 
for the transaction of all business requiring the investment 
of large capital or the exercise of financial skill. In conjunc- 
tion with his friend and partner, Gov. Hopkins, he was 
entrusted with a monopoly of the exportation of corn and 
grain raised in the Colony; and in 1647, the Court granted 
him the exclusion of prosecuting the whale fishery for seven 
years ; a design which he did not live to carry into execution." 

Major Whiting's will was dated July 24, 1647, and it is 
believed he died soon after. The inventory of his estate was 
£2854; and he was one of the wealthiest men in the Colony. 
A widow, Susanna, survived him, and married in 1650, 
Samuel Fitch, of Hartford, who died in 1659. She married 
3rd, Alexander Bryan, of Milford, and died at the home of 
her daughter, Mrs. Collins, in Middletown, Coim., July 8, 
1673.

NATHANIEL FOOTE, of Wethersfield, Conn., who 
was bom in England in 1593, came from Watertown, Mass., 
in 1635, or perhaps late in the year previous, as one of the 
original settlers. The first mention of him is found in the 
records of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, when, in 1633, he 
took the oath of freeman. He had a homestead in Water- 
town, which is described in the town records as " an hom- 
stall of sixteen acres by estimation, bounded y® north & north- 
west w*** y" highway, the south and south-west w*** Jeremiah 
Norcross, granted to him." He had brought with him to 
Watertown his wife and several children. He was one of 
the first ten men who settled in Wethersfield, the so-called 
" Adventurers," and held the largest share in the " adventure- 
lands " (i. e., title not derived from the town). 

His earliest homestead in Wethersfield, which he recorded 

in 1640, was on the east side of Broad street, at the extreme 

south end, and contained ten acres. Mr. Foote was a 

conspicuous landowner in the town, possessing the largest 
38 



298 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

acreage, especially of the lands lying in that portion of the 
township west of the " Great River." His land amounted 
to more than 400 acres. 

He was chosen a Deputy or Representative to the General 
Court in 1641, and in January, 1643, and was active in the 
affairs of the town in its earliest history. He died in 
1644, aged about 51 years. The inventory of his estate was 
taken ITovember 20, 1644, and included two hundred and 
thirty-one acres of land. 

" Nathaniel Foote," says Goodwin in his Genealogy of 
the Foote Family, " belongs not to that class of men who fill 
a large place in the world's history because called by some 
great emergency into positions of power and influence; but 
to that more meritorious class of pious and excellent persons, 
who, born to the great inheritance of labor, walk meekly 
along the paths of common life, perform every duty, public 
or private, love and help their fellow-men, and act always 
as if in the Great Task-Master's eye." 

433. 

The wife of Nathaniel Foote was ELIZABETH 
DEMING, a daughter of John Deming and sister of John 
Doming of Wethersfield, whom he married in England about 
1615. She came with him to New England, and outlived 
her husband, marrying 2nd, about 1646, Thomas Welles, 
then Magistrate, but afterwards Governor of the Colony. 
Governor Welles died January 14, 1659-60, and his widow 
died July 28, 1683, about 88 years of age. She is said to 
have been a " woman of character."

ANCESTORS 

OF THE 

TENTH GENERATION 



TENTH GENERATION 
634. 

BENJAMIN WILMOT of New Haven, Conn., was 
one of the early settlers of that Colony. It is believed 
that his son Benjamin came from England first and was 
the " Benjamin Willmott " who signed the original compact 
of 1639, and that his father came from England to New 
Haven later. Among those who took the oath of fidelity 
May 2, 1647, was " Old Willmot." This was doubtless the 
father. He was " aged about fourscore " when he made his 
will, dated August Y, 1669, in which he names his three 
children, Benjamin, Ann, the wife of William Bunnell, 
and William. Three children of Benjamin then deceased 
represented him and four children of the daughter also 
deceased represented her. Benjamin Wilmot the elder died 
August 18, 1669. His wife, ANN, died October 7, 1668. 
His son William, born in England, married October 14, 
1658, Sarah the daughter of John Thomas of New Haven, 
and died in 1689, aged 57. He left a daughter and two 
sons, Benjamin and William. [New Haven County Court 
Eecords, I: 185.] 

740. 

JOHN CLARK of Hartford, Saybrook, and Milford, 
Connecticut, was the emigrant ancestor of a large family 
of descendants. He is believed to have come to New Eng- 
land from Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, in the " Eliza- 
beth " in April, 1634^ and to have been one of the earliest 



304 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY, 

settlers at Hartford. He was an original proprietor there, 
his home lot in 1639, being on the west side of what is now 
Trumbull street. Then and later he owned various tracts of 
land. He served as a soldier in the Pequot War and after- 
wards was one of the owners of land in the " Soldiers Field " 
given as bounty for that service. In 1641 and 1642 he was 
a juror in Hartford. The earliest reference to him as of 
Saybrook is under date September 9, 1647, when, as we are 
informed in the Colonial Records, " Capten Mason & Jo: 
Clark are desiered to carry on the building of the Fort, by 
hireing men or Cartts or other necessary es," and " they are 
alowed to make vse of the last Rate to be paid by Seabrook." 

John Clark was frequently a Deputy to the General 
Court, representing Saybrook from 1651 to 1664. In the 
Charter of King Charles II. in 1662 he is named as one of 
the patentees. He was called to other important services 
and it has been truly said of him, he was " a man of note 
in the Colony." 

The last years of his life were spent in Milf ord, removing 
thither it is thought about 1665. He was Deputy from that 
town to the General Court in 1666 and 1667. He died in 
1673. The following record is made of him in the Church 
Records at Milford: " 1673 June 4— Mr. John Clark and 
Serg* Daniel Buckingham ordained Ruling elders. Mr. 
Clark died Feb^. 5 in year folP." His will, dated February 
17, 1672, at the beginning and January 19, 1673, at the 
end, the latter being perhaps the date of its execution is 
recorded at New Haven and is in print. [Kew Haven 
Probate Records, I : Pt. 2, p. 50 ; Chapman's Pratt Genealogy, 
pp. 340-342.] In it he calls himself "John Clark of 
Milford," mentions his son " John Clark of Say-Brook," 



TENTH GENERATION. 305 

and children Elizabeth and Sarah. The inventory of his 
estate in Milford amounted to £207 2s. 6d. and in Saybrook 
to £227 8s. He then owned lands in both places and be- 
queathed those in Saybrook to his son. His wife also is 
provided for and her daughter Abigail Fletcher is named. 

741. 

The name of the first wife of John Clark was doubtless 
" Coley," for in his will he makes a bequest to his " brother 
Samuel Croly," who was of Milford. This relationship may 
have afforded a reason for his subsequent removal thither. 
She was the mother of his children and is presumed to have 
died at Saybrook about 1664. He married, 2nd, Mary, the 
daughter of widow Joyce Ward, and widow of John Fletcher 
of Milford, who died April 18, 1662. [Connecticut Colonial 
Records, I: 451-453.] After the death of John Clark, his 
widow removed to Farmington, where she died January 22, 
1678. Her will, dated November 28, 1677, names her chil- 
dren by her first husband among whom her property was 
divided. Her estate was valued at £273 5s. 6d. of which 
property to the value of £32 16s. was in Farmington, and 
the balance in Milford. [Manwaring's Hartford Probate

J0H:N' POKTER of Windsor, Connecticut, is the 
emigrant ancestor of this line.* It is said that " he came 
to 'New England with his wife and nine children from 
Felsted, County Essex, England, probably in the ship 
' Swan and Ellen,' 17 July 1638," and in company with 
his brother-in-law Joseph Loomis. He appears at Windsor 
in 1639, being present at the General Court August 8th 
as a member of the town committee. In 1640 he is a 
juror and in 1646 and 1647 Deputy to the General Court. 
He was a man of some property, as well as ability and 
character. His home lot was on the " Island " extending 
east and west of the road, and included part of the " Ply- 
mouth Meadow." His house was east of the road. 

John Porter died the 21st and was buried the 22nd of 
April, 1648. In his will dated April 20, 1648, he names 
sons John, James, Samuel and ISTathaniel, daughters Rebec- 
ca, Rose, Mary and Anna (Hannah) and a son-in-law Joseph 
Judgson. Two older daughters Anna and Sarah had received 
their portions at their marriage, and the portion of Rose, 
who died the following month, was subsequently divided 
among them. His inventory amounted to £470 17s. [Man-

18. John Porter of Felsted & Anna White of Messing." 
She was the mother of his older children at least and probably 
his only wife, whose death is recorded in 1647 as " John 
Porter, Sen'rs wife." AKN'A WHITE was the daughter of 
Robert White of Messing, a village about ten miles from 
Becking in Essex. Her baptism is recorded in the Messing 
Parish Register, July 13, 1600. The mother of Anna AVhite 
was Bridget Allgar, daughter of William Allgar of Shalford, 
Essex County, England. Robert Wliite died in 1617 and it 
has been said that " he cannot have been an old man at the 
time of his death, for he had at least five children unmarried, 
and apparently only one of them over twenty-one." His 
daughter Elizabeth married William Goodwin, and his daugh- 
ter Mary married Joseph Loomis, both of them coming to 
^ew England, and well-known in its history. Anna is 
mentioned in her father's will in the following clause : " I 
give and bequeath unto my daughter Anna White the summe

consent of my two fornamed sonnes in law, and my wife, 
as is aforesaid. But yf soe fall out, as that she my said 
daughter Anna shall marrye w^^'out the consent and ap- 
probation formerly mentioned, then I give and bequeath 
hir only the summe of thirtey pounds of like lawfull monie." 
There is no doubt that the necessary approval was given and 
that three years later the bequest constituted her marriage 
portion. [Will — Goodwin Genealogy, pp. 68-71.]

ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF JOHN PORTER. 

The Porter Genealogy has the following interesting 
paragraph concerning the family : " The record in England 
gives his descent in the sixteenth generation from William 
de la Grande, a Norman Knight, who came in the army of 
the Norman duke at the conquest A. D. 1066, and that he 
acquired lands at or near Kenilworth, in Warwickshire. His 
son Ralph (or Roger) became " Grand Porteur " to Henry 
first A. D. 1120 to 1140, from which he derived the name 
Porter." 

753. 

HENRY WOLCOTT, son of John Wolcott of Tolland, 
England, and descended from an ancient family of position 
and wealth, was baptized December 6, 1578, in the Parish 
of Lydiard St. Laurence.* He removed to New England, 



* Authorities on the Wolcott Family are The Wolcott Memorial 
and Stiles's History of Windsor. 



TENTH GENERATION. 309 

with his wife and several children, in March, 1630. He was 
one of the first twenty-four freemen of Dorchester, Mass., 
and received grants of land there as early as April, 1633, 
and probably before; and was Selectman in 1634. He was 
one of those most interested in the Connecticut settlement, 
and removed to Windsor in 1636, as one of the original pro- 
prietors. In the year following he took an active part in the 
earliest legislative proceedings of the new Colony; was 
elected a Magistrate in 1643, and continued to hold this office 
until his death, May 30, 1655. Mr. Stiles, the historian of 
Windsor, says of him: — " He was probably, after the pastor, 
the most distinguished man in Windsor." 

In speaking of the life and public services of Henry 
Wolcott, Mr. Hollister, in his History of Connecticut, says : — 
" In the Y8th year of his age, but with a judgment unclouded, 
and his usefulness unimpaired, the venerable Henry Wolcott, 
one of the principal magistrates and advisers of the colony, 
quickly followed his comrade (Haynes) to the grave. I 
cannot help making a brief mention of him, and yet were T 
to speak at any considerable length of all the bright examples 
of patriotism and exalted worth that have borne the name 
of Wolcott in Connecticut, I should find this work extending 
itself beyond the limits that I have marked out for it." 

" Henry Wolcott, Esquire, the ancestor of all the Wolcotts 
of this State, was of a very ancient family, and the owner of 
a large estate in Somersetshire. He was born in Tolland, on 
the 6th of December, 1578, and was the son and heir of John 
Wolcott of Galdon Manor. The manor-house is still stand- 
ing, and is of very great antiquity and extent. It was orig- 
inally a splendid mansion, designed as well for the purposes 
of defense against the excesses of a lawless age, as for a per- 



310 BOARDMAN ANCESTRY. 

mancnt family residence. It is still richly ornamented with 
carved work, and if left to itself unassailed by the hand of 
violence, it will stand for ages. The familiar motto of the 
family arms, borrowed from the Roman poet, is still to be 
seen upon the walls of the manor-house, its bold words inform- 
ing us that the family who have adopted it as their text of 
life were " accustomed to swear in the words of no master." 
It is alike in keeping with the independent spirit of an 
English gentleman of the middle ages, and with that of a 
Puritan of the 17th century who spurned the dictation of 
ecclesiastical dominion." 

" In his early life Henry Wolcott lived after the manner 
of the landed gentry, at an era when the term " country 
squire " was synonymous with whatever was bold, athletic, 
and hardy in the steeplechasing, hospitable days of " merry 
England." But as years stole on, and the principles of the 
Reformation, making little progress at first, began to invade 
not only the wrestling-ring of the yeoman and the counting- 
room of the merchant, but the hall of the country-gentleman, 
Wolcott, among others, was led to direct his thoughts to more 
serious topics than the pastimes that had engrossed his earlier 
manhood. While meditations respecting a future state of 
being occupied his mind, a religious teacher, Mr. Edward 
Elton became his guide, and led him to that clear under- 
standing of the doctrines of Christianity, and those firm 
convictions of its truth, that remained with him to the 
day of his death. Of an ardent temperament and lively 
sensibilities, and seeing that much needed to be reformed 
in the severities practiced upon so many of the best subjects 
of the realm, he soon became identified with the Puritan 
party, sold a large estate in lands, including the manor- 



TENTH GENERATION. 311 

house, for which he received about eight thousand pounds 
sterling, probably much less than its value, and made prepar- 
ations to spend the remainder of his days in America. In 
1628 he visited ISTew England to examine the country, and 
returned. His sympathetic nature could not fail to attach 
itself inseparably to the self-accusing, though charitable, 
Wareham, and he sailed with him for the new world in the 
same ship, and arrived in Massachusetts in May, 1630. Roger 
Ludlow was of the same party. Wolcott remained in Dor- 
chester until 1636, when he removed to Windsor upon the 
Connecticut river. He was, as most of our best inhab- 
itants w^ere, a planter, and was the principal one in Windsor. 
He was a member of the General Court of Connecticut in 
1639." 

" In 1643 he was chosen into the magistracy, and contin- 
ued to be one of its most safe and immovable pillars till his 
death in 1655. His monument of imperishable sandstone, 
built by the same hands that fashioned the one that stands over 
the Fenwick tomb at Saybrook, has always been a shrine to 
tempt towards it the feet of his numerous descendants, who 
have piously guarded it and lovingly adorned it for two 
hundred years. Time has spared, and the gray moss has not 
obliterated, the quaint and simple epitaph, whose plain let- 
tering tells us that it is the resting place of " Henry Wolcott, 
some time a magistrate of this jurisdiction." 

753. 

Henry Wolcott married, January 19, 1606, ELIZ- 
ABETH SAUNDERS, daughter of Thomas Saunders of 
Lydiard St. Laurence, who was baptized in that parish 
December 2, 1584. She came with him to New England,

THOMAS NEWBERRY was one of the earliest settlers 
and largest landed proprietors of Dorchester, Mass., receiv- 
ing from the General Court, in March, 1634, one hundred 
acres of land at Neponset, and many other grants from the 
proprietors of the town. He was made a freeman September 
3, 1634, and was chosen a Deputy or Representative in 1635. 
He became much interested in the Connecticut settlement, 
and disposed of all his estate in Dorchester, with the inten- 
tion of removing to Windsor, Conn., with the Rev. Mr. War- 
ham and his party. He died, however, before the departure 
of this company, in December, 1635, or January, 1636. 
[Stiles's History of Windsor.'] He had been in Windsor a 
short time before, preparing for removal, and his lands were 
recorded to his children in 1640. His widow, Jane, and 
children, made the journey to the new settlement, and she 
became the second wife of Rev. John Warham (perhaps 
before the migration to Windsor), and died in ISTorwalk, 
Conn., April 23, 1645. 

756. 

SAMUEL APPLETOX, son of Thomas and Mary 
(Isaac) Appleton, was born in Little Waldingfield, Suffolk 



TENTH GENERATION. 315 

County, England, in 1586, and baptized August 13, of that 
year. About 1628 he removed to Key don, and from thence, 
in 1635, emigrated with his family to 'New England. 

Samuel Appleton settled in Ipswich, Mass., and was ad- 
mitted a freeman, May 25, 1636. He was chosen a Deputy 
from his town to the General Court in 1637, and was a mem- 
ber of the Grand Jury in 1641. He died in June, 1670, in 
Kowley, Mass., where he is said to have lived for some years 
prior to his death. 

757. 

The first wife of Samuel Appleton was JUDITH 
EVERARD, whom he married in Preston, England, Jan- 
uary 24, 1616, She was the mother of his children, and is 
supposed to have died before his emigration to ISTew Eng- 
land. The first name of his second wife was Martha.

768. 

WILLIAM PAINE, son of William, was born in or near 
ISTowton, Suffolk County, England, about 1598.* His father 
was for many years " lord of the manor " of that Parish, 
and he was a descendant of Sir Thomas Paine, Knight, 
who lived in Leicester in 1400. 

William Paine, with his wife, Anna, and five children, 
left London in April, 1635, for 'New England, sailing in 
the ship " Increase." He landed at Boston, Mass., and set 
out at once for Watertown, where we find his name recorded 
as early as July 25, 1636. Within a few years he removed 
to Ipswich, and was admitted a freeman, May 13, 1640. He 
resided there about fifteen years, and then removed to Boston, 
where he died, October 10, 1660. 

Mr. Paine was one of the leading men of his time in 
New England. He was on terms of intimate acquaintance 
with the Winthrops, and other distinguished men both in his 
own Colony and Connecticut. A man of wide experience, 
and excellent judgment, he was frequently selected to serve 
on important committees, and to settle disputes concerning 
boundary lines between several towns in Massachusetts. He 
was an active merchant, and one of the earliest of the colonists 
to recognize the importance of home manufactures. While 
at Watertown, he had acquired a controlling interest in Gov- 
ernor Dudley's Mill on the Charles Biver. This he operated 



* The facts contained in this sketch of William Paine, are chiefly 
from the Paine Genealogy, by H. D. Paine, N. Y., 1880, and the Paine 
Family Records, Vol. II: Nos. 2 and 3.

as a " fulling mill " until his death. In 1641, the town of 
Ipswich granted him permission to build a wharf for his 
warehouse. He assisted in establishing the iron works at 
Lynn, Beverly, and Newbury, and gave them his financial 
support. He also operated the lead mines at Sturbridge. 

He was deeply interested in extending the settlements of 
the English in Western Massachusetts, and was a member of 
a company incorporated in 1645 for this purpose, and known 
as the " Free Adventurers." Mr. Paine, after his removal to 
Boston, continued a prosperous mercantile business, posses- 
sing extensive headquarters there and at Piscataqua. 

Both William Paine, and his brother, Eobert, were men 
of public spirit. While at Ipswich, they aided in establish- 
ing the free school there, and in their wills, made pecuniary 
provisions for its support, as well as gifts of land. In all 
his business ventures, William Paine seems to have been 
successful. He acquired a fortune for the times in which he 
lived, and died leaving an estate of more than £4,200.
