It is assumed that h e also was a ieuaar retainer oi

13. It ib certain that shortly after 1200 A,D. Bin tt hain Manor & its 
lands were t:,tin in the hands of theft ingiwhioh means 
that tue original de Bin&haius , who had lirst iivsu there 
alter ttie Conquest, .teie ui bl q o e ess eu alto A ether; & I find

FIRST PART OF THE THEORY. 






T h t> tradition 3 of several Branches of the present B l n b h a m 
family claim ancestors at one time living in Sootianu. Snei- 
tieiu is north oi Bingham Manor on the roau to Sootianu. Ine 
B i n g h a m s who here uis;ossessed of the Manor ina>,soifle or tncu, 
have T/tndered northwaru & our Shuifield anoestor may most reason-, 
ably be uescen^ad from one oi' them. If tnis be true v. a xia_j. 
have a common anoostor with the M e i comb e- B in^ nam family oi Dor- 
set & vita the noble Irish family; but see later* 

However, if tuis be tue true theory it oen never be pf qv eq , 

for sufficient recoras ao not exist.

orset, in tue time of Kin^ henry I. (1100-35) seems 
oerta inly to have been iaf ^..undisturbed. 

Uutchin's Hist. of Bois et , Vol . iv ,b eii inning kith tnis man, 
gives tue line in unbroken suooesaion to the present day oi the 
'•' u i o omt o - 1". i ii rj utti a of Dorset* One pi this line married tue Tur- 
berville heiress I succeeded to property in Dbxset,vhile the 
Sutton property in Somerset eventually passeu into other nanus. 

All the prominent Irish Bin^hams spring 1 from tae Melcombe,' 
Dorset, iamiiy,as proved by their armoiial bearings* 

14. It is pe rtain that in 1266 A.D. fTin H Henry III ^ranteu 
Bingham Manor in iee to Ralph Bu>, rt e of Nottingham, one ol whose 
ohildren assumed the name ae Bingjftam.jyhiph descender, Otneio 
of Ralph F)ua ft e's descendants tool: the names oi otner estates 
which tney j. ossesseu,soiue oj In., tc estates bein^ iormer uepenu-

1b.- It is iLiLTJLeviu that in 1400 A.D, these Bingnam estates were 

again in the hands or the K 1 n B 4 by law aettieu on Sir Thomas ■ 
tie Reinpston , w ith certain lite cants stall uue to oertaiu ue 
Bingham tiaoi's. 

De Rempston i had. a daughter Margaret who marrieu a 
Bingham hut they appear to have had no ohiiuren, 

16. It is pertai n tuat by 1460 A.D. these Bingham estates had a A am 

[.usueu entirely, out o 1, ,t h e nanus of b family of that name. 

17. Out it is also oertain that in 1460 A.D. there v. are u d oou 

many de Bin t ,hams scattereu ahout in the neighborhood oi 
Bingham Manor, rthy none ox them got tha lands , I no uoi Know. 
After tue Bluer lines died out, the lands ao not seem to uuve 
gone to the younger branohes hut Lac I? to the King. Most oi 
tnese Binghams v< are direct descendants oi tae Ralph :■'_..,., 
of Nottingham who got Bingham £• its dependencies in 1266 is.D. 
from t n o Kin n . 

18. There are ecattereu hut t. , j a i ,. ut 1 y reliable recoras of Bln^hams 

of the 16th & 1 7tn centuries , living in London , Burr ey , Rut- 
land, Essex & other count las* These ali,botn by armorial hear- v. 
in^s 8. pedigrees of reooru, cauie from tiie Bug^e-Binkhaoi fam- 
ily of Nottingham oi 1266 A.D, These Bin^hawa hud all moved 
s p u t h from Nottin^nam & ware anga^ed in some kind of income 
(iroduoitif, Business, One la ueucribeu as a "ciUisou 1 nauer- ., 
dasher" - another at a "gentleman &. mwr chant". One cua bu 
traced down to 1b60 A.D. - another to 1623 A.D. 

SECOND PART OF TltK THEORY. 

; , :. ' - (; i (i .'. ! :■ 

Whj may not others of this family uava moved north 
instead of south? - as, ior instanoe,to Sheffield, '.'» &kef i el a *- o 
wuicharenotfar. 

19. The Bingham who ns "The tauter Cutler of Sheffielu" in 1624 A.D. 

may vail U compared in social station with tae Bingnaui of 
London , "gent 1 em an ft merchant" in or before King Henry VIII's 
t ime ( 1 509- 4 7 ) ; or with the £in A ham oi' London , "o it 12 en a 
hab er das uer"who marrieu the uau ti nter of ILing henry Vlll'a 
goldsmith. Yet tuesa last two have their pedigrees in tile 
Viuitatiouu ol lieralus &■ their armorial bearings are tue 
strna as those or the Pu & go- Binghans oi Nottingham &. Bingham 
Manor in 1266 A.D.,vi:?. , 

Oi ,on a fasse t ules, three water bougets argent.

ROBERT WADE 

The west boundary above referred to under John Biro hard, first 
as Abell- & in 1699 as "formerly" Wade, was on Wade's original homelot. 

Wade exchanged home lot 3 with Abell on Jan. 1,1677, by which deed 
we identify Wade's original home lot. (See Book of Deeds, Vol.1 f page 4 5 9- 
given under Caleb Abell, next following). 

The "metes & bounds" of Wade's original home lot are therefore 
those given for what was, in 1692, Caleb Abell' s lot (sometimes called his 
home lot),whidh he had gotten in 1677 from Wade by exchange-as follows!

Mohegan oh i ei', Unona , ga ve> to his third s on, Jo3hun, , the land between 
o" & Willi man tic rivers. Joshua died in 1676 & left a will u»- 
g this lan.l to C aft* John ''.asoi ox Norwich « 15 other colonists 
for a plantation". 

In May, 1678, the General Assembly or Conn, accepted the will 
& allowed the Norwich legatees to have these lands, which were 
later incorporated aa the township of Windham. 

The legatees met in Norwich Feb. 17, 1682 & signed an agree- 
ment a ra o n g themselves. 

They icat again in Feb., 1685 & agreed to settle in throe 
places & d e t e rtn i ne d a general plan. 

Surveys & divisions vvere completed in the Spring oi' 1686. 
The lay-out wus in 48 shares, each of 1000 acres. Each share 
included a home lot in ono or the three places designed tor 
villages - Also, meadow, past ii re & upland in various localities. 
The sites selected lor villages were 

1) The "South -east quarter " or "Hither Plaoe"(oacaus* nearest to 
Norwich) •- no* Id Windham; - located on the west side or Old 
'tl i n d h a tu Street. 

2) The "Pondo Place", north -west or "Hither Place" & now iWla^.liWli 
Mansfield Center. 

3) The valley oi' the Willi man tic river, near the site or the 
present city of W i 1 1 i in ant i c , w es t ol "Hither Place" & in the 
"Crotch" oi the V i 11 ira antic & Naohaug rivers (forming the 
Shetucket r i v e r ) . 

The legatees met to receive their allotments. 
It was ordered that the "Hither Place" oe fenced in out the 
drought was such that it could not be done* 

Caoifi the first settler, John Gates, an English refugee, 
flying from the spies of Sir Edmund Andros; - & u man whom 
tradition represents as a high political, offender, a Common- 
wealth soldier & even a r t: 1 1 c i d t . 

Kin ( j James II was dep os e d, Vil 1 iam C of Orange) & Mary 
enthroned & Andros driven away. Gates came out of hidin a (in a 
cave) & D ought an allotment oi' Daniel Mason

It would appear that, while the original ^ro^rietora no douot re- 
ceived written doeda to their lands, there was j-rooaolj ,n,t tho ootiunin,., 
no Book of Rooordo in which these tere "r eo ord ed " . To this day in England 
there is little "reoording" of deed a, in an official uoo» record - the del 
in possession oi the owner peine! the onlj proof of title. 

At a later date such a b o o k oi' records was o e e , u n at Norwich, no doubt 
made up from the deeds in owners' possession, but uy that time sons 
owners were unable to produce their deeds) which may have ueen mislaid vt 
lost or possibly, in some instances, destroyed. 

Hun ce the names of "Dowers" & "Wade" & "Ai ell" are not found iu the 
"Boo .%. of Grant a" , although all were undoubtedly original owners. Thuy are 
however mentioned in later deeds. 

w i n b to omissions & disagreements in the old records, it will p r o b a ■ 
bly do found iicj osnibla to obtain the "metes & bounds" of all tho origi- 
nal lots fc their oiiict locations. 

A Town vote was t a k e n January 2 4^,1601 in regard to the deficiency 
in the original records & "where dates could not be & o t at". On the jiur-
